Meet Curly Haugland – RNC Honcho: Voters Don’t Pick Presidential Nominees

Thanks to Diana West for her excellent essay on Curly.

Rush Limbaugh recently talked about this fellow several times.  And Drudge ran a link to a story on Curly Haugland, too.  This is a fascinating piece of video footage.  If you haven’t kept up with current events, there’s some voter discontent with candidates winning a majority of popular primary election votes and yet not winning the delegates; or there just flat out being no popular primary voting and a particular candidate winning the delegates – somehow.

Curly Haugland sez that the media are at fault for creating all of this voter anger about how the machinery of the various political parties works – or doesn’t work – in putting candidates on the nation’s Presidential ballots.

The voters don’t matter at all in picking a particular party’s nominee.  And it has always been that way, sez Curly.  Furthermore,  if you listen to the Q&A in this video he’s not in any frame of mind to entertain the recent complaining about, oh for instance, how Ted Cruz got all of Colorado’s delegates to the GOP’s coming national convention without even a primary election.

In fact, you can draw a pretty strong inference from Curly that he thinks maybe we shouldn’t even have primary elections.  Further, we can draw an inference that Curly believes primaries serve no purpose except to let voters get in the way of the party honchos doing what they want to do – by creating unnecessary media firestorms.  That’s what I got from this.

Welcome to reality, America.

Good luck if you think you’re going to have any influence on what the GOP does with Donald Trump’s candidacy.  We don’t matter here.  It’s the GOP insiders and power brokers who are going to decide what choices we have – or don’t have- come next November.  I will not be surprised to see a floor fight, a brokered convention and another RINO like Paul Ryan, John McCain or Mitt Romney eventually come out of the Cleveland convention as the GOP nominee.

Oh, I can hope that doesn’t happen.  But that’s all I can do.  And that’s all you can do.  Curly Haugland et al are actually in charge.  Isn’t that something.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
