Word is that the Republican Caucus in Iowa is going to have their
meeting in secret in order to prevent a Ron Paul nomination victory.
Someone needs to get boots on the ground, find the location of the
meeting and make it public, then stake out as many of the alternate
locations as possible.
Caucus members tend to not be the best
secret keepers, and will be made up up VIPs mostly from around the
state, however national level VIPs will travel to the area in order to
push their own agendas.
With these VIPs go their personal
entourages, and that also ALWAYS means some advance people. The Advance
teams usually involve at least one security person, a protocol person,
and a travel manager. Lower level people will have one person or firm
conduction all three functions.
The advance people tend to need
to be in charge of booking lodging, arranging security and meeting some
representatives of the press ahead of time in order to schedule news
releases and interviews. They also may be in contact with lobbyists and
delegates. Identification of the advance people and their activities
can be used to determine the overall travel agenda of the VIPs, which in
turn will give you a pretty good idea on where to look for the larger
scale meeting taking place.
You will be looking for the following:
A surge in vehicle rentals in a given area (check airports to see if
reservations are backlogged for any reason). Check for some new type of
gathering, like a convention listed under some other cause or purpose
which did not appear to be scheduled very far out, or does not have
fairly well known keynote speakers in a given industry that is
associated with that convention.
If you are in the security
business, check for inquiries for bodyguard and security services at a
convention or gathering that usually does not involve them. Whatever
this thing is, it will involve a fair number of security contracts. On
the upper end, that means jobs for ex-cops, people who are part time US
Marshals, sometimes ex-military people with VIP security experience.
See if someone who does not normally work in Iowa is suddenly getting
scheduled to work there, and find out which town. People who previously
had been scheduled to work the caucus will probably at least know the
town they are expected to show up to, the town where they are expected
to get their hotel rooms and stay ect.
Look for notices of an increase in law enforcement activity in some particular area for no obvious reason.
like entertainment, so the upscale hookers and escort agencies will
likely be given backdoor intel on where to be ready to handle business.
Likewise, the security guys and feds for some reason seem to really
like Hooters, you might get intel there. Otherwise, look for an upsurge
in business at middle to upscale stripper clubs, 30-something in shape
military looking guys with not much of any explanation of why they are
Spikes in hotel reservations are a biggie, people
booking limo services, executive sedan services, and busses. Caterers
will also be contacted by advance people and need to arrange things
ahead of time. Gas station attendants, caterers and drivers for those
services can be a source of intel.
The most important
information to gain at this point will be the location of the caucus.
Preferably roughly two days notice in the closed forums, one days notice
in the open forums. A month or a week would be nice, but I am guessing
the intel would only have a half life of hours before it becomes fairly
The other task will of course be vetting the false
info, verifying information and sorting out who is BS and who is not.
Remember for future reference who is passing correct information vs
those who were given bad information and passed it along vs those who
prove to be intentionally passing false information. Keep in mind who
those people are, especially those who later prove to have been
intentionally passing false information.
I would have to check
the laws on this, but it may also be possible that the whole thing could
legitimately be conducted in another state, but I am not sure. If so,
then it would likely be in a neighboring state.
I have not been
an ardent Ron Paul supporter for a number of reasons, but secrecy and
subterfuge in selecting a presidential candidate is absolutely
unacceptable. If we don't do something, a lot of something, then this
could be the end of the Republican party as we know it, and effectively
put this country into one party rule. Ron Paul, win or lose, has to be
given an honest and fair chance at a presidential nomination or the
credibility of the electoral system, and the long term interests of
Republicans, will be over.
You know how little play we have with
the Democrats and how badly third parties traditionally perform, but
the third party option remains as a fallback plan, not the main plan.
Plan A is for Ron Paul to run on the ticket of an established first
party, not represent a spoiler vote like Ross Perot did.
