Report: Last Day of the Reform Party Convention and an Overview
many had left, enough delegates showed up at the Sunday session to constitute a
were some necessary details to be taken up, for instance, the National Committee
meeting had to be called and dispensed with. The Sunday National Committee
meeting had been called months ago, but it had become unnecessary because of the
business done at the previous Tuesday’s National Committee meeting (the one
which got so much Media coverage due to the cry baby maneuvers of the Mangia
Mouth) which had been called by Maryland Reform Party Leader Robert Bowes and 81
others on the National Committee as the rules prescribed.
Buchanan national office seemed to desire that nothing happen on Sunday that
would put Pat Buchanan, now the nominee, in a tough position. This position was
articulated by Kelly Abt of Texas near the “sudden death” end of the
was certainly no desire on the part of anyone there to put PJB in a tough
position, and the affection for the candidate was again evident as everyone
broke what they were doing a little after the convention was adjourned to watch
Pat’s appearance on C-Span on a big screen TV in an adjoining room. There were
maybe 100 people in that room, with a running competition between people
clapping and laughing, and other people saying “Shhhhhhh!!!!’ so they could
hear Pat’s next comment.
there were delegates with a zeal to engage the Reform Party itself in certain
issues for the good of the Party and the good of the nominee. I was not a
delegate, but just an “agitator” on the sidelines. I was supportive of three
motions that were circulating: 1) commit the Reform Party to sue the Big TV
Networks for making an illegal campaign contribution to the Bush/Gore ticket IF
they covered any Presidential debates which excluded PJB; 2) have the Reform
Party make a demand on the Big TV networks to make public the criteria by which
they do public opinion polls and exit polls; 3) call for an end to computer and
machine counted ballots, and a restoration of paper ballots, hand counted by all
factions of citizens in the neighborhood precinct.
Bollyn of Illinois and Christopher Shaper of California were especially zealous
to lay the ground work to get these motions to the floor.
supporting such action was Dottie Watson of Louisiana, Susan Madori of
California, Jerry Heinemann of West Virginia, John and Sandy Gilbert of Arizona,
and many others. Robert Bowes of Maryland was willing to help bring such action
to the floor, as he had done in the matter of disqualifying the Reform Party
eballot during the Friday session – a subject that will be covered in depth
soon in this Network America e-wire series, including Susan Madori’s
devastating analysis of the illegality of the attempted Reform eballot / mail in
ballot national primary. Susan’s work is an important document of historical
value to not for future Reform Party conventions, but for future elections in
fact, there was not one delegate or grassroots person at the Reform Party
convention who was not for including the paper ballot resolution. And, by the
way, we were only pushing resolutions – as PJB had stated that nothing would
be added this year to the Reform Party platform, and just about everyone wanted
to respect that.
as noon passed, the National Chairman Gerald Moan, who had faithfully held up
his part of the bargain to be fair, was clearly nervous about what was to come.
Twenty or twenty five people were lining up at the microphone to introduce or
Moan and the National office felt that the distinction between resolutions and
platform amendments would be lost on press and public.
after noon, Party chairman Moan called for a quorum, clearly hoping there
wasn’t one. But 245 or so delegates were present, with only 230 needed. The
next ploy was a motion to adjourn. Gerry Moan called for the Ayes and the nays.
It seemed clear to me and everyone I talked to that the “nays” had it, in
other words, don’t adjourn. Nevertheless, Chairman Moan ruled that the Ayes
had it, and adjourned the convention.
a few people were not happy, but there was no sentiment to challenge the
Chairman. After all, the week as a whole had been a great victory against the
Perot, Verney, Mangia “koolaid mixing” Wrecking Crew.
faction’s plans to lead the Reform Party to suicide had been met and stopped
by the Buchanan Brigades. Chairman Moan and Credentials Chairman Frank Reed of
Ohio had exercised a steady, patient hand throughout the convention proceedings.
instance, when it when it came time to evict Mangia from his position as Reform
Party national secretary during the early part of the convention, Moan
volunteered to cast the first vote. It was clearly an emotional moment for him,
as he watched the Perot coalition fall apart for the last time. Many of the Old
Guard, as they came to be called, had had great hopes for what they thought was
Perot’s original vision, but now the evidence was irrefutable that something
had gone terribly wrong. (I believe what that was is detailed in our
provocatively titled e-wire: R. Perot: R for Rat – found in our archives at
votefraud.org in the News section, under “News by Month” in the June
e-wires, dated June 5, 2000.)
any case, there was no appetite, even among those who were peeved by the sudden
shutdown of the convention, to do battle over the issue.
objectively speaking, the failure to address the issues of Big Network public
opinion polls, exit polls, and easily rigged computerized elections on C-Span,
on prime time, was a tremendous mistake. The Buchanan campaign has nothing to
lose by doing this, and everything to gain. The Reform Party has nothing to
lose, and everything to gain. The Big TV Networks and the Ruling Elite behind it
are trying to put the Reform Party, and all third Party movements to sleep ---
death by the euthanasia of censorship, smear, and de-emphasis. The Ruling Elite
owns both major parties and the Bush/Gore ticket – tickets, if you prefer to
living in Fairy Tale land --- and doesn’t want any competition.
in all, the convention wrested the Reform Party away from the Perot / New World
Order forces in the face of well orchestrated disruption and opposition. Even
so, the internal turmoil and disruption caused by the Wrecking Crew did
accomplish, and is still accomplishing what it is intended to do. 90% of the
talk at the convention and since the convention has been how to stop or undo the
damage being done or threatened by the wrecking crew.
other words, instead of fighting the New World Order Bush/Gore ticket – the
Reform Party leaders have had to busy themselves fighting the well funded, well
organized handful in each state who are trying to Stop Buchanan at all costs.
This is a common tactic. Every minute and every dollar spent fighting
“internal” disruption --- is a minute and dollar that can’t be spent
overturning the New World Order Ruling Elite and their puppets. This is an old
tried and true strategy of the forces of darkness, and while the Buchanan
brigades and the Buchanan National Office are handling the trouble as well as
can be expected, such contrived mayhem eats up the clock when so much needs to
a tribute to Bay Buchanan for pulling the whole thing off convention off against
the backdrop of as much opposition as any serious national Presidential campaign
has ever faced.
