Establishment GOP Insider Admitted to Plan to Subvert Iowa Caucus In Order to Prevent Ron Pauls Win : Iowa vote fraud official - Denver Conspiracy. It’s official, or is it?
Once again the establishment is showing it’s cards in an obvious attempt to defraud Ron Paul of the nomination, as Iowa GOP ‘officials’ purposely disrupt and permanently invalidate the 2012 Iowa Caucus. The official Caucus website, in conjunction with the Des Moines Register, had to come forward Thursday to claim the official results can “never be certified” after, at least, 8 different precincts turn up invalid results due to “missing votes” and changing stories. For the first time in history, the Iowa GOP decided to change the final vote count to a “Secret location” for what was claimed to be “security concerns.”
The unprecedented change in venue came as a shock to most Iowans who are used to seeing the final results tallied at State Party Headquarters in Des Moines, in full view of the public. Originally, the results had Romney winning by 8 votes over Santorum with 30,015 votes. The troops feel Ron Paul is the best candidate for America, as well.

The final Iowa vote count normally takes place at state party headquarters in Des Moines, but following dubious “security concerns” about Occupy protesters disrupting the tabulation process, the Republican Party of Iowa announced that it would be moving the final vote count to a secret undisclosed location.

Squeaker of a victory in hand, Romney looks to NH. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A squeaker of an Iowa victory in hand, Mitt Romney headed Wednesday into the New Hampshire primary — in his own political backyard — insisting that staying power sets him apart from runners-up Rick Santorum and Ron Paul and the rest of the GOP presidential field.
He shrugged off the promise of sharper criticism from his rivals. "I've got a big target on me now," Romney said, adding that doesn't faze him. "I've got broad shoulders. I'm willing to handle it. " The former Massachusetts governor was declared the winner of the leadoff presidential caucuses in the wee hours Wednesday by just eight votes, bringing down the curtain on an improbable first act in the campaign to pick a challenger to President Barack Obama in the fall. Appearing hours after the caucuses had ended, Iowa GOP chairman Matt Strawn said Romney had 30,015 votes, to 30,007 for Santorum, whose late surge carried him to a near win.

Michele Bachmann suspended her presidential campaign after placing sixth in Tuesday’s Iowa Republican caucuses, she announced today. “Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, so I have decided to stand aside,” Bachmann said at a news conference, flanked by her parents, husband and five children. “I have no regrets, none whatsoever. Bachmann said she will continue to fight the policies of President Obama, particularly his health care legislation, calling the 2012 election “the last chance to turn our country around, before we go down the road of socialism.”
She said she was motivated to stop Obama and not by a thirst for power. Bachmann had staked her candidacy on Iowa, the state in which she was born and raised. Bachmann placed last out of the six candidates competing here in Tuesday’s first-in-the-nation caucuses, receiving only 5 percent of the vote and losing in Waterloo, the town where she was born. Santorum wins Iowa, officially. » Media Cover-up: Ron Paul’s Standing Not Discussed in Iowa Vote Reshuffle Alex Jones. Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com January 19, 2012 Republican officials in Iowa today said that there was no clear winner in the caucus held there on January 3.
Party officials said results from eight of the 1,774 precincts were missing when they conducted the vote certification process, meaning they likely will never know what the final tallies were for the candidates. Despite the ambiguity, Rick Santorum was quick to declare a “virtual tie” in the race and the establishment media obliged him on the claim while ignoring how the change effected Ron Paul’s standing. Rick Santorum claims he is in a “virtual tie” with declared winner Mitt Romney. According to the Iowa Caucus website, the certified results of 1,766 precincts made public Thursday show Santorum with 29,839 votes, followed by Romney with 29,805, Ron Paul in third with 26,036, and Newt Gingrich with 16,163, Rick Perry with 12,557, Michele Bachmann with 6,046 and Jon Huntsman with 739.

Meet the Mainstream Press. By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com Nothing is more emblematic of the mainstream media (MSM) than NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
I wonder if it should be renamed “Meet the Corporate Mainstream Press” because that is exactly what it was on Sunday. Before the first vote was cast, Sunday’s panel anointed Mitt Romney as the Republican candidate to face Barack Obama this fall. I really wonder why we have caucuses or primaries at all. We should all just watch TV and let shows like “Meet the Press” tell us what’s good for us. The MSM doesn’t tell reporters or guests what to say; they just pick the people who will say what they want. You could not have gotten a more Romney biased panel on “Meet the Press” if you would have gone to Mitt’s campaign headquarters. I think the Democrats and President Obama would like nothing more than to run against the man who thinks “corporations are people too.” Paul, on the other hand, would be unpredictable and difficult to corner. Can someone explain the Iowa caucuses? : explainlikeimfive. Why Iowa Shouldn’t Vote First Anymore.
A week before Iowa’s January 3 caucuses, the outcome of the Republican contest is hard to predict: Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney all stand a chance at winning.
But something else already seems clear: Iowa has blown its special claim as the first state to vote in presidential contests. Iowa’s first-to-vote-status dates to 1972, when a quirk in Democratic Party rules scheduled its caucuses ahead of the New Hampshire primary, which had opened the presidential nominating process since 1920. Republicans followed suit four years later. Iowa’s political establishment quickly found that it enjoyed all the attention and economic activity that came with going first, and enshrined into state law a mandate that Iowa vote at least eight days before any other state. Iowa seems to have gotten away with this leap to the front of the line in part thanks to its folksy all-American image as a heartland state home to honest, common-sense rural folks.
So why have these candidates risen to the top? Last day: 23 Iowa campaign stops combined. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The White House their goal, Republican presidential hopefuls raced across Iowa on Monday in a final, full day of frenzied appeals for support in precinct caucuses that open the 2012 campaign.
"It is the race you make it," an upset-minded Rick Santorum told voters soon to pick a winner. In the race's final hours, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney predicted victory and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich all but forecast his own defeat. From Sioux City in the western part of the state to Davenport in the east, the six presidential hopefuls hustled through 23 fast-paced campaign events combined. That and the $13 million or more already spent on television commercials was evidence enough of the outsized importance Iowa holds in the race to pick a Republican opponent for President Barack Obama next fall. Romney had one eye on his GOP rivals and another on Obama as he argued he is in the best position of all to capture the White House. Texas Rep. Texas Gov. Media Cite Unnamed Critic To Dismiss Iowa As 'Too White,' 'Too Rural' As Iowa voters head to their caucuses tonight, some in the media are asking if Iowa is "too white, too evangelical, too rural" to accurately represent the political views of the country as a whole.
That's how NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell phrased it while interviewing Republican strategist Mike Murphy. Now, Mitchell wasn't making that charge herself, of course. She was merely citing unnamed "critics" who hold that view, she said. As was the New York Times' A.G. Sulzberger, who in mid-December wrote this : "Iowa has long been criticized as too much of an outlier to be permanently endowed such an outsize influence in shaping the presidential field. The unnamed critic certainly is getting a lot of media coverage these days. Is Iowa too small, rural, Christian and white to be a fair representation of the country? Iowa's population is small - it’s the 30th most populous of the "57 states" Pres. In 2004, George W.
"There is no denying that the Hawkeye State is something of an outlier here. The GOP field: The week ahead - James Hohmann. Rick Santorum has campaigned harder than anyone in Iowa this year. So it’s not surprising that he’s the first Republican back on the Iowa trail after Christmas — with a pheasant hunt and press conference in Adel Monday. After that event, though, most of the GOP 2012 field begins the final sprint toward the Jan. 3 caucuses, with no more debates to shift the narrative and all the ad time already bought up.

Then he heads to Davenport that evening, hoping to pick off some Iowa support with a three-day bus tour that kicks off in eastern Iowa Wednesday morning. Newt Gingrich visits his wife’s family in Wisconsin on Monday after spending Christmas Eve and Christmas morning at a Catholic basilica inside the Beltway.
