Remember it’s not a conspiracy theory if it’s real. Not only has the RNC launched a Contested Convention Website, Reince Priebus is vowing not to turn the party over to Donald Trump if he is the nominee. The majority of the people want the party to unite behind Donald Trump. The will of the people be damned apparently your vote no longer means anything to them. The establishment Republican’s are bound and determined to steal the election one way (delegates) or the other (rule changes).

I agree I don’t trust our votes will be honored. Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus clearly does not want Donald Trump to be President and it looks like the fix is in! Highlights from Newsmax:
“If Donald Trump wins the Republican presidential nomination this summer, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus is vowing not to give the billionaire’s campaign control over the party leading up to the November election, according to a report in The New York Times.
The Times said Priebus “has also let it be known that he does not plan to let the Trump campaign take over the party apparatus if he captures the nomination.
“At an off-the-record happy hour with reporters last week, Mr. Priebus said clearly that, regardless of precedent, he would not be layered over by Mr. Trump’s loyalists, according to two people present.”
If true, Priebus’ decision would be a stunning reversal of precedent and a serious slap in the face to the Trump campaign.
In modern presidential campaigns, the presumptive nominee of the party, even before gaining the nomination, takes de facto control over the party and its apparatus.
The candidate and the campaign takes the helm of the national campaign effort, with the party and RNC chair taking direction from them.”
“Also discussed was the situation in Louisiana, a state whose primary Trump won. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will likely earn more delegates from the state because his campaign found ways to work within the state’s delegate system.
Regarding Louisiana and other states with finicky rules regarding delegates, The Times reports that Priebus told Trump every campaign in the race should be ready to fight for votes at this summer’s convention in Cleveland.”
