CHAOS: Brokered GOP Convention Coming To Cleveland? There’s A New Book For That

Contested political conventions can look a lot like gang warfare: high-stakes, lots of fighting and drama, and quite expensive.

In the world of political consultants who know how to successfully manage the chaos a convention fight entails, John Yob just might be the best in the business

Yob, a Michigan based political consultant and strategist, is releasing a new book next week just in time for a possible showdown in Cleveland this summer at the Republican National Convention.

The book is called “CHAOS: An Outsider’s Guide to a Contested Republican National Convention In 2016”

The book, as the title indicates, provides insight in to what the convention process entails, and is billed as a “guide to a contested convention that will get you up to speed on the people who matter, the rules that have been changed, the real impact of delegate binding, and the free agent delegations who hold power on the convention floor.”

The book also spotlights Yob’s history of successful convention battles…

A preview of the book posted on a promotional Facebook page says:

“The Republican National Convention in 2016 will likely be the first contested convention since 1976 and the first convention since 1948 to be decided after multiple ballots.

The conservative anti-establishment groundswell that began in the primary season of 2010, and continues today with the dominance of the outsider spectrum will culminate in a chaotic convention that will decide the Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees of the Republican Party.

This book is the outsiders guide to a contested convention that will get you up to speed on the people who matter, the rules that have been changed, the real impact of delegate binding, and the free agent delegations who hold power on the convention floor.

You will also learn the eight steps you can take to impact the convention process and help your favorite candidate win the nomination.”

Yob

Yob, recently in the news after the famous cheap shot from Rubio adviser Rich Beeson at Horn’s Bar on Mackinac Island, has been involved at the top levels of campaigns for decades.

Yob was previously the political director for Sen. Rand Paul’s Presidential campaign, and has also been a top adviser to White House hopefuls like John McCain and Rick Santorum.

Yob has a nearly flawless record of winning state conventions in Michigan. His major victories include John Smietanka for Attorney General in 1998, Terri Lynn Land for Secretary of State in 2002, Bill Schuette for Attorney General in 2010, and Lt. Governor Brian Calley in 2014. Yob also managed former ambassador Ron Weiser’s successful 2014 campaign for University of Michigan regent nominee, and in 2013, ran RNC Committeeman Dave Agema’s shocking landslide victory over incumbent Saul Anuzis.

Yob’s rise can be traced back to that 1998 race where he, along with his father, Chuck, dealt a major blow to establishment Republicans by defeating Mitt Romney’s brother Scott Romney for Attorney General.

The race is described this way by Wikipedia:

“In 1998, Romney announced his candidacy for the office of Michigan Attorney General. That office had been held for 37 years by one person, Democrat Frank Kelley. However, for health reasons, Kelley announced his retirement as Michigan Attorney General that same year (1998). The Republican Governor at the time, John Engler, had backed U.S. Attorney John Smietanka against Kelley, despite the strong likelihood that Kelley would easily win re-election. However, upon Kelley’s surprising announcement that he was not seeking re-election, Engler switched from supporting Smietanka to supporting Scott Romney for the Republican nomination.

What followed was a power struggle at the Michigan Republican Party convention with influential Michigan Republican and Smietanka supporter Chuck Yob. Romney lost his bid for the nomination to become Michigan Attorney General; Smietanka won the nomination.”

Friends and foes of Yob’s recognize his convention skills.

Brian Calley, the Michigan Lt. Governor, speaks highly of Yob.

“John Yob knows more about running conventions than anyone in Michigan and maybe anyone in America,” Calley said. “His record of success is unmatched and I am grateful for his help over the years.”

RNC Committeeman Holland Redfield also praised Yob.

“John Yob has written the premier guide to how a contested Republican National Convention would work and rightly emphasizes the key role the U.S. Territories would play in the process,” Redfield said.

    • The Rinos trump has you convinced are against him, but fooled you into thinking it’s a move to the center or some shitt. IT is a move so far to the left– even rinos didn’t like it.
      Name 1 single issue that trump is = or further right of than any rino.. Just 1..
      Name 1 that trump held before a couple Months ago IF you can find one.. Try it…. For shits and grins..

  1. The current government is useless, incompetent & has been doing more harm to USA than our enemies. Way past time for a complete changeover before our country is completely destroyed!!

    • We need to get back to the Constitution is what we need. It really is as simple as that, despite what liberals will tell you.

    • Trump has no desire to fix this.. The bureaucracy has largely been weaponized against the people,, Trump merely want to ‘tweak a % or 2 of the irs”
      TRUMP DOES NOT GET IT.. Or doesn’t want to..

  2. If Trump is the undisputed winner of the nomination, but the establishment powers deny Trump that nomination, due to their own greed and crony-capitalist corruption, then they may as well be saying we’d rather have Hillary. It will be clear that would rather see the Republican party be totally destroyed, rather than lose the personal power of their own self interest. That is exactly the message they will be sending.

    Personally, if the Republican party decides to commit suicide, I can’t stop them, nor am I sure I would want to. Sometimes, a cancer patient has to become even sicker by virtue of the treatment in order for them to start getting better, so it seems to be the case with the Republican party.

    I can’t say exactly what will happen, but I can tell you that if Trump wins, but is denied the nomination, it will be the end of the Republican party.

    • The Republican Party would rather have Hillary than Trump. She plays their game. This corrupt bunch does not want anyone to mess up their playhouse. If Trump gets the nomination, the Republican establishment will do everything in their power to elect Hillary. Trump will need everyone’s help. Go Trump.

      • Yep, that pretty much sums it up. The Republican establishment would much rather deal with a liberal like Hillary, than someone who is going to throw a monkey wrench into their self serving, crony-capitalist gravy train.

        They would rather lose to Hillary and be able to keep up the facade and lies of how hard they are fighting against her, in order to get the votes of the people….while telling their crony capitalist donors that they are not going to interfere with the illegal cheap labor coming across our border.

        That is a much easier game for the establishment Republican liars to play than actually having congress and the White House and then having to come up with yet another excuse as to why they can’t secure the borders.

        The people who have supported Republicans have had it with their lies and excuses. In a nutshell, that is why Trump is doing so well.

        • I agree with your post, you got it right about the lies and excuses in a nut shell. “TRUMP” 2016 all the way.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Even, EVEN Trump’s ‘wall’ is a lie… You are not going to wall our people out if the Rio Grande for 800 miles and destroy their property.. I’t s ‘shiny object’ to bullshit you, when border security is the issue. He is bamboozling for votes.
            Trump is a weak, blustering PT Barnum “there’s a sucker born every minute’ fool..
            There are right ways to do it– But trump don’t know it. He is shallow and deceitful.

          • And you know this HOW? Do you know Trump that well or is it just hearsay? Or you just parroting someone else?

          • He sbouldn’t build walls, he should build towers. Just shoot them when they come across. After the first couple of hundred the rest will get the message.

          • Hey, ya know, you may be right. I don’t have a crystal ball. If Trump is the nominee, I will vote for him, even though I would prefer Cruz. But if it comes down to Trump or Hillary, then Trump gets my vote. I completely understand your reservations. Believe me when I tell you I have them too, but I only have one vote.

            I don’t agree with Trump on a LOT of things…and I mean “a lot” of things, but even so, I’ll take my chances with him over Hillary any day.

            If for no other reason, (and assuming he follows through on what he says) he is going to put out a list of people whom he will nominate to the Supreme Court. His statement is that he will put out the list before the election and then choose from only that list, if he is elected.

            Now, I have to see what his choices would be, but at least knowing ahead of time to be able to do research on them would be a huge advantage. He says he will list people in the mold of Scalia. That remains to be seen of course, but if Trump keeps his word, it will be a big advantage for him.

            If Trump turns out to be a liar, I’ll be in line to call for his impeachment.

      • the republican leadership knows Trump is a leftwing progressive in disguise, not a real conservative, a rino, and hates him for this. vote cruz or rubio, the only true republicans left in. they will do much better in the general than trump. polls show trump losing big.

          • look back 3 months.. “Single payer’ “It’s goooood- you’ll like it”, And he says he will replace obamacare with something Gooood”
            He funded NY liberals on the democrat side of the fight… So there are about 19,000 pages of obamacare reasons.. And 80,000 regulations worth,.,

        • What polls????? I have heard nothing of this and I have been paying attention BIG TIME, believe me!

          • The ones that don’t say– “64% of women now support me” which doesn’t count all women.. not the relevant info that “could stomach” does not = ‘support’, which his now “Lyin’ family” tried to sell..
            Now I have lost respect for his whole family.. Couple weeks ago I couldn’t imagine i would say this..

          • I mean no disrespect, but your response is confusing. Mr. Trump has a huge following and not all of them are men. The facts are that he has won more states than anyone else and all the candidates try to paint a favorable picture of themselves. We’ll just have to wait and see now how everything plays out.

        • If that were the case they would love him. Get your facts straight. RNC loves Rino’s where have you been? That is what they are.:-)

          • even rinos are closer to the center… That is why they wouldn’t move left to meet him.. It’s simple.. Even rinos know trump was funding the opposition, on what trump is now pretending to be against..

        • now,,,, wouldn’t that be something.. do you think a socialist government be nice???? I don’t think so. sanders in his younger pic. looks like he could gnaw thru a log..what an UGLY mugg……

        • And I would say– Go ahead.. Conservatives did not need you to take 29 Statehouses, Wisconison 3 times, the ‘kennedy seat’ or anything else.
          It is a weak and empty threat.. And you got this braniac idea from Trump?
          You weren’t there while we were doing this, And especially neither was trump…. Trump was funding the opposition that was voting obama/pelosi/reid 100%.. The UBER – RINO that not even Rinos would touch..

          • Trump funded Cruz and Romney and McCain also…whoever he could buy as a businessman.. That’s what they do. Trump is the only one not bought.

    • Just so long as you remember– Conservatives HAVE been, and they are not the same thing as GOP.. Do not confuse the 2.. And GOP wasn’t funding all things obama/pelosi/reid votes, LIKE TRUMP..
      Why would you want the GOP to move left to trump? It doesn’t make any sense..
      And trump has pulled this fast one on you? Stop and think.. Do some research on your own. See what you find..

      • the GOP in nothing but their own little society of bird watchers. they like to watch as one leaves the nest an when another comes in to lay more rotten eggs. this is how the GOP hits me. they are all corrupt in this little community.

        now true conservatives are another story, so lets keep it that way , because this is the catagory Trump fits into… non-corrupt by politics!! he has his short comings but all in all he will be an extremely good President…”IN MY BOOK THAT IS”

    • Go ahead– You didn’t help win wisconsin, kennedy seats, or 29 statehouses either. What makes you think you are necessary now? But you WILL vote for the ones who Will repeal all things obama.pelosi/reid– In weeks not months- Because that is the WHOLE LOAF.. Not 1/4 loaf trump BS..
      If you think ‘I’ll rino away from the fight” Scares the warriors who have been in the fight- You are sadly mistaken. We fight on without the weak, untrustworthy ‘backup’ — I’t better that way.. Go vote hillary, sanders or trump- The next conservative landslide will be assured–
      You would have played a necessary role… And ended obama/pelosi/reid/trump in weeks not years (or likely never)..
      And we will thank you..

  3. If they go against the will of the people and put in their own candidate and not the one who wins the primary election, there will be pain felt in the GOP for decades, if the party even survives such a maneuver. Both political parties need to be destroyed and this is a great way to do it. Let them destroy themselves.

    • That’s not going to happ[en. That is a circus lie from “trump entertainments and resorts”
      Even trump’s “every one called me and said– you have to run, you have to rum’ is a lie.. You can bet, nobody called an uber-rino and asked him to run.. It’s a ‘sales’ trick..
      Dirty tricky trump has been pulling fast ones.. Funny, but not funny anymore..

    • Go conservative– NOT Uber-Rino, where no rino has gone before.. And WIN– In weeks not years (if ever).. Repeal all things obama– Not “tweak it”

      • Trump is brilliant Knows the best people is not bought juyst wants to make America great Obama is a disaster the worst President in history and crooked Hillary wants to follow policy 20 trillion, 150 billion to Iran, wants borders open so ISIS can come in and they are It goes on and on but if you like America WAKE UP!!! Go Donald

  4. THE GOP WILL DISTORY THE GOP BY THEM SELFS IF THEY DO THIS AND TAKE THIS AWAY FROM TRUMP BECAUSE HE WILL WIN THE GOP DON’T WANT TO LOSE THEIR LOBBYEST THAT IS WHERE MOST OF THEIR GRAVEY IS $$$$$$$ TO PAD THEIR POCKETS WITH WHAT I LIKE ALSO ABOUT TRUMP IS NO ONE CAN BUY HIM OFF HE IS HIS OWN PERSON

  5. Brokered Convention = GOP’s plan to force a hand picked candidate down the throat of it’s constituents regardless of who they picked.

  6. The GOP refuses to listen to the people of the United States insulting me and millions of other people who voted for Trump. They prefer wimps like (no Benghazi) Romney, Bob Dole, or McCain who refused to bring out Obamas dirty laundry. The GOP is dead in my eyes

    • You want them to listen, and move to the left with trump? Romney was a vastly superior candidate than trump.. Trump is circus clown selling you a circus.. Even his wall is a lie.. You con’t actually want mexico to pay for a wall that cuts us off from the rio grande do you? How about BORDER SECURITY, without the 3 ting circus. One that inhibits and extremely disincentivizes illegal crossing?
      You wont get the elephant, but you don’t get that at a trump rally either, anyway..

  7. I have no idea why any one would want to vote for the liar Clinton especially since she has said she wants to continue with Obamas policy. We would have no country with 8 more yrs of Obama .

  8. THE GOP WILL LOSE AMERICA IF THEY KNOW WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE PARTY THEY WON’T GO THRU WITH THIS INSANE IDEA THAT CONTEST TRUMP WOULD BE A BIG MISTAKE THIS TO THE GOP DON’T DO THIS OR THE GOP WILL BE A THING OF THE PASS

    • Conservatives WILL SAVE YOU.. Just as they have been the last 3 elections.. Calm down.. Use your reasoning and look ahead, for real. Trump was not there, he is useless now.,,. HE can go back to hillary, where he came from…

    • No she won’t. As a matter of fact– trump can go 3rd party for all I care- He will share votes with hillary and Conservatives will walk in with a landslide.. Trump is lyin’ her too….

  9. To Cheat Americans out of our Choice is a Hostile Government and would Start a Civil War !! Cause to chose someone Other than we Voted for is a Sure win for Hilary !!!

    • It’s not a cheat when conservatives win.. And they don’r have to lie to get votes.
      You want a landslide- Go with the landsliders,.,

  10. IF THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT TO DO THEN THE GOP WILL LOSE THIS ELECTION AND THIS WOULD BE THE END OF THE GOP FOR DECADES TO COME IS THAT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT THEN GO FOR IT MOST OF THE VOTERS DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS BUT CES LA VIE

    • No they wont.. Conservatives have resulted in landslide– LANDSLIDES without you, in wisconisn, kennedy seat and 29 statehouses.. Without trump, or you..
      I have the proof…

  11. ALL HELL WILL BREAK LOSE IF THEY TRY TO PULL THAT CRAP ON TRUMP ALL HELL WILL BREAK ALL OVER AMERICA AND THEIR WILL NO LONGER BE A GOP SO GO FOR IT IF YOU DARE

  12. Mark the year 2016 in your history book. It is the year the Republican Party has committed suicid. It lost its soul. It no longer exists. There will be a Wake for it this coming first Tuesday in November. Burnt toast. Sadly adios!

    • Then comes Martial Law, Obumbler will declare it and take over and will be the King or Dictator and we are up the creek without a paddle.

  13. Yob was previously the political director for Sen. Rand Paul’s Presidential campaign, and has also been a top adviser to White House hopefuls like John McCain and Rick Santorum.

    And where are they now, Rand Paul and John McCain? If Yob is so good what happend;
    He didn’t get John McCain elected(not even close), He didn’t get Rand Paul anywhere in
    the primaries. How is he so great???

    • I laughed at this quote –

      “Yob, recently in the news after the famous cheap shot from Rubio adviser Rich Beeson at Horn’s Bar on Mackinac Island, has been involved at the top levels of campaigns for decades.”

      For decades??? He has only been involved in campaigns since 1998! To me that is 18 years – Not decades.

      • I agree 100% he Yob hasn’t been such a great political figure for decads. That is funny, a two time failure is what is say, at least two times, unknown about any victories of YOB.

      • In only 2 years it will Be DECADES…
        But– Trump is geting ready to get us Romney/McCained.. And people will say “We should have gotten a ‘conservative” not a murky water progressive,,, Yet again!

  14. The misconception that the ‘establishment’ win’t move LEFTWARD to trump, has been misrepresented. Because Trump IS to the left of every single Republican in Washington.
    Why are people no making issue that the Republican party should go full blown Rino, all the way over to Trump and his pretend wall??
    Republicans HAVE been for National and border security — It is Obama that trump is running against, But he supported dems who supported all things oba,a/[elpsi/reid
    If that isn’t RINO, what is (except even Rinos didn’t do that)
