Establishment v Grassroots face off in today’s caucus. Are you ready?On Mar 20, 2018 No Comments
Before you attend the Caucus Night Tuesday, March 20, 2018, be aware a war is going on between the grassroots and the establishment. Know what it’s about. Breitbart picked up on this story the morning of Utah’s caucus.
This battle is between the big government, globalist establishment and the Utah grassroots and it has gotten ugly, just like the establishment that sought to destroy Judge Roy Moore in Alabama.
If you have received an email from Daryl Acumen (real last name is BRADSHAW), be aware he is a PAID contractor for “Count My Vote,” the Establishment initiative seeking to eliminate the caucus system and to go to a direct primary, the system other states use that do not share Utah’s values, such as California and Connecticut.
Acumen’s Facebook and email posts are considered volatile, vile, vicious and vulgar. I have deliberately stayed away from engaging with his bullying tactics.
Also know that Acumen is lying and twisting the truth. His latest action is to launch a vicious personal attack on the people that represent the 74% of Republicans that support a caucus system and the man that stepped forward to retire the legal and operational Party debt, Dave Bateman.
Acumen and the pro-CMV “Buckshot Caucus” have recently resorted to extortion. Utah Senator Todd Weiler has arrogantly admitted to offering $1 million for a woman to fabricate a sexual harassment lie against Bateman. Heads are going to roll. Who asked a Utah Judge to open a marriage dissolution case that had been sealed? And which Judge did it? That is ILLEGAL!
Who is the “Gang of 51?”
Please watch the video that shows a sampling of these grassroots people he has viciously branded “Gang of 51” and understand that CMV is trying to dupe you into thinking these are extremists and “bad” characters.

CMV’s goal is to weaken your voice and the voices of your neighbors and friends that become engaged in learning more about the candidates through legislation SB 54 and now the elimination of the caucus altogether.
Senator Curt Bramble and Representative Mike McKell sponsored this unconstitutional legislation that interferes in the party’s business by manipulating how candidates are elected to favor incumbents such as themselves.
The Party has engaged in a lawsuit to remedy this unconstitutional action. And it will win at the US Supreme Court where Justice Scalia spoke strongly in favor of a political party’s right to freely assemble without legislative intrusion.
Justice Scalia in the U.S. Supreme Court decision on California Democratic Party vs. Jones stated:
“In no area is the political association’s right to exclude more important than in its candidate-selection process. That process often determines the party’s positions on significant public policy issues, and it is the nominee who is the party’s ambassador charged with winning the general electorate over to its views. The First Amendment reserves a special place, and accords a special protection, for that process…because the moment of choosing the party’s nominee is the crucial juncture at which the appeal to common principles may be translated into concerted action, and hence to political power… .”
CMV allows a candidate to bypass the convention of neighborhood-elected delegates and to petition on to the ballot. It doesn’t matter what delegates may think or want, it throws that decision to voters that may not have had time to study out the issues or the candidates, but merely see a flashy commercial on TV.
The Predictable Results of the Dual Path: Undermine Real Republicans and the Platform
This dual path was tested in a special election with results that the grassroots predicted. The result was what conservatives predicted. The winner was the former Democratic Party Vice Chairman John Curtis, who ran as a Republican, did poorly among the delegates that had vetted the candidates. But because of SB 54, he was able to move forward to a forced primary where he defeated the long-time favorite among delegates and conservatives, Chris Herrod.
Herrod has a strong conservative voting record in the state legislature anti-illegal immigration champion and author of The Forgotten Immigrant, Chris Herrod. The Establishment in Utah has the media in its corner because media make money when candidates must spend thousands and millions in a primary election.
Utah’s establishment is strongly pro-amnesty. The sponsor of SB 54, Senator Curt Bramble, has also sponsored several pro-amnesty bills turning Utah into a sanctuary state.
My family of origin has long been conservative grassroots. My brother, well known in Provo, has demonstrated this love of America first on all he has done in that community.
This is the battle Utah faces. Tonight caucus attendees will decide, based on which voices they believe – the voices of the Establishment bought by Big Media, or the voices of the grassroots who support the Republican Party platform and want to hold candidates accountable to it.
I am proud to be on the list he has branded “Gang of 51.” I am honored to know the respectable people with whom I have worked to keep the caucus system strong. We have long fought for the Republican Platform of fiscal and social responsibility. We have long-standing records supporting “America First” ideals, best represented by Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.
The grassroots favors the caucus because it allows people that don’t have fame or fortune to remove bad incumbents. Our hero is David Bateman, CEO of Entrata, a software company that provides CRM services for property management. When the party Chairman Rob Anderson refused to retire the debt, suggesting the best way to retire would be bankruptcy, Bateman stepped up to the plate to rescue the Utah Republican Party and retire its $400,000 legal and operational debt.
Pro-CMV Rob Anderson never publicly thanked Bateman. Instead he has allowed Acumen to launch vicious personal attacks and lies against Bateman.
