Today it is official as Donald Trump won the Republican nomination for President by winning the number of delegates needed at the RNC! The Republican Party started the year with 17 bona fide candidates for President. This was more candidates than any major party in history.
Trump had more wins than any other Republican or Democrat candidate in this year’s race with 37. He also had more primary wins with 33 and led all candidates in percent of overall wins and in percent of primary wins.
Trump surpassed the number of delegates needed to win the Republican nomination for President in the primaries and he officially won the number of delegates just now in Cleveland!
IT’S OFFICIAL- TRUMP WINS!
Trump won more delegates than any other Republican candidate and a higher percentage of delegates than any Republican or Democrat candidate in the race. It also was the highest percentage of delegates compared to what was needed at 125% during the primaries.
As a result Trump received more votes than any candidate in Republican history.
George W. Bush had 12 million votes in 2000. The Republican Party also set a party record this year in pre-convention state election turnout with over 31 million votes which was more than 150% of the record high voter turnout in 2008. This increase in votes can be attributed to Donald Trump.
When compared to the average number of votes or delegates or wins per candidate – Trump breaks all records!
The Democrats had a lower turnout than in 2008 by more than 6 million votes.
Melania Trump gave a great speech last night at the Republican National Convention (RNC).
She was poised, impressive and beautiful in her presentation. She spoke about a number of topics and summed up her admiration for her husband while building a case for why he should be elected President of the United States.
This Morning Melania is Accused of Using Some Language from a 2008 Michelle Obama Speech
This morning the former Sports Illustrated super model has come under attack by “NeverTrumpers” and the left wing media for having appeared to have imitated a small passage from Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech in her speech last night.
Politico reports that the small passage from both speeches bore a striking resemblance to each other –
Here is the small passage from Melania Trump’s speech from last night –
“From a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise, that you treat people with respect,” Melania Trump said in her speech. “They taught and showed me morals in their daily life. That is the lesson that I continue to pass along to our son. And we need to pass those lessons on to many generations to follow because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.”
Here is the small passage from Michelle Obama’s speech from 2008 –
“… Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them,” Obama said, according to a transcript. “And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation. Because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.”
Here is the comparison of the 2 passages against each other. The items in red are differences:
When initially comparing the 2 passages they do look similar but when comparing them with a professional Word processor, they are more unique than alike.
President Obama and Vice President Biden have Done the Same or Worse
Current President Barack Obama in 2008 was accused of using statements from a prior speech made by Deval Patrick without giving Patrick credit for the statements (as noted at Drudge Report this morning):
Current Vice President Joe Biden was called out for plagiarizing in 1987 when he used a series of phrases that closely mirrored a previous speech by that of British politician Neal Kinnock. This Biden incident of plagiarizing made the online journal plagiarismtoday.com. But Biden’s most famous case of plagiarizing was back in the 1960’s in law school where it was “concluded that Mr. Biden had ”used five pages from a published law review article without quotation or attribution” and that he ought to be failed in the legal methods course for which he had submitted the 15-page paper.”
Of course, Obama and Biden’s acts have been long forgotten by the major media.
Michelle Obama may have copied Melania Trump in the Past –
On the online web page with Melania Trump’s name a photo of herself is presented in a yellow dress. A picture of Michelle Obama wearing a similar yellow dress was also located on the Internet (labeled for reuse). From these 2 pictures it looks like Michelle may have been trying to copy Melania when wearing the yellow dress.
Protests are planned for this week in Cleveland while the Republican Party confirms the nomination of billionaire businessman Donald Trump for President at the Republican National Convention (RNC). It’s been reported that the Democratic Party has set aside almost $1 million to create chaos in Cleveland. In addition, as of June 22nd permits for 23 protest groups were approved for this week in Cleveland, many of them from radical far left and/or anti-Trump groups (e.g. Code Pink, ‘Stand Together Against Trump’ and ‘Stop Trump’). Alternatively, two groups were denied permits, one of them a pro Trump organization, Citizens for Trump.
Don’t be fooled into believing that protests expected in Cleveland this week are random events stirred up by Cleveland residents or average Midwesterners. Like most, if not all the protests staged by the liberal left and promoted by the liberal mainstream media, the anticipated protests in Cleveland were prepared for weeks ago. The astroturfed (i.e. phony) protests do not represent the majority of Americans and therefore have to be arranged in advance.
You can tell that a protest is astroturfed by looking at who is there and the signage in the background. Yesterday’s ‘protest’ at the Hilton Hotel Midtown in New York City where Trump announced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his pick for Vice President is a great example. A picture posted at the Daily Mail Online shows protesters outside the event (see above).
There are two common themes at all liberal protests:
High Potential for Violence – All liberal Democratic led protests have an extraordinary potential for violence. Bill Ayers was on hand yesterday and seen in the foreground in the picture above with coffee in hand leading the protest, and the group in the background is cheered on by the man with tattoos and long hair. Bill Ayers, the former leader of the Weather Underground, participated in bombings of the New York City police headquarters in 1970. He now is a professor at the University of Illinois in Chicago and was involved in the violent protests in Chicago in March that eventually prevented Donald Trump from speaking at a planned campaign stop there. Ayers is also a good friend of President Obama and is suspected of writing Obama’s books although Obama claims he wrote them himself. (The tattooed guy is just one of the radical violent hippie types who show up at events sponsored by people like Ayers.)
Supported by Liberal Elites and Unions – The signage in the background in the picture above is printed in advance and clearly not handmade by Ayers or the tattooed man. It costs money to make these signs. Unions like the SEIU often pay for signage like the above. One recent anti-Trump protest in NYC supposedly representing poor Americans had a jumbotron which was obviously not paid for by the poor protestors. The only way violent liberal protests can take place is with support from liberals at the top and radical liberal elites.
With the ‘protestors’ preparing for weeks to create chaos at the RNC, with the recent murders of police in Dallas, and with the yearlong acts of violence conducted against Trump supporters across the nation, the RNC participants should be prepared for violence from liberal leftwing ‘protestors’ in Cleveland this coming week!
Donald Trump officially announced Indiana Republican Governor Mike Pence will be his running mate in a tweet yesterday. Today at 11am Trump is scheduled to hold a press conference to officially introduce Pence as Trump’s Vice Presidential selection.
Was born and raised in Indiana and earned is J.D. from Indiana School of Law.
He has been married for more than 30 years and has 3 children.
Since taking office in 2013, Pence has enacted the largest state tax cut in Indiana history while also eliminating the business personal property tax for Hoosier small businesses, and lowering corporate income taxes.
When Pence took office in January 2013, Indiana unemployment stood at 8.4%. Since then he helped Indiana create over 100,000 private sector jobs and unemployment in the state is now down to under 5%.
The state has invested more than $800 million in new money for roads and bridges in Indiana under Pence.
Prior to being governor, Pence represented portions of Eastern Indiana in the United States House of Representatives for more than a decade. During his time in Congress, he served in leadership roles as Chairman of the Republican Study Committee and Chairman of the House Republican Conference.
He is respected by many in the Republican Party as a true conservative.
All of the above is good but what proves that Pence is the right choice for VP is the reaction from the ultra-left liberal media –
The New York Times has critical headlines related to Pence such as “Proudly out of Sync with his Times”, part of “The Political Reality Show” and the Times asks “Will Mike Pence Satisfy the Insatiable Right?”
The liberal British publication the Guardian stated about Pence – “he’s a colourless nothing in a suit who ostensibly lends stability to Trump’s endless parade of berserk neon theatrics.”
Liberal Yahoo News says “He is most well-known for a controversial religious freedom bill”.
The Liberal Boston Globe quotes Hillary’s campaign manager John Podesta who says, “By picking Mike Pence as his running mate, Donald Trump has doubled down on some of his most disturbing beliefs by choosing an incredibly divisive and unpopular running mate known for supporting discriminatory politics and failed economic policies that favor millionaires and corporations over working families.” (Lowering taxes and promoting jobs in Indiana must be what Podesta means by discriminatory politics because it sure isn’t failed economics.)
Former federal prosecutor and Freedom Watch founder, Larry Klayman was on the Steve Malzberg Show on Newsmax TV yesterday. Klayman filed a lawsuit on Saturday against President Obama, the founders of Black Lives Matter, Al Sharpton, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and former US Attorney General Eric Holder for their race baiting that led to the fatal shootings that killed 5 Dallas police officers and injured another 9 officers last week.
Klayman’s federal class action lawsuit accuses the defendants of aiding and abetting murder, terrorist promotion of gang activity and civil rights violations of law enforcement officers and seeks damages of more than $2 billion. He is hoping police forces around the country will join him in the class action lawsuit.
Larry speaks four languages—English, French, Italian, and Spanish, and is known for obtaining a court ruling that Bill Clinton committed a crime, the first lawyer ever to have done so against an American president.
Klayman stated on Malzberg that, “This President may act as a king but he’s no Martin Luther King and he has personalized this to such a degree. He’s not the President of all the people; he’s the President of his people. Everybody deserves to be treated equally…. He [Obama] would rather pursue his grudge on white cops and white people and frankly Jews and Christians because he does wear his Muslim heritage on his sleeve. Whether he claims he’s Christian or not the fact is he favors both blacks and Muslims.”
Former federal prosecutor and founder of Freedom Watch, Larry Klayman, filed a lawsuit on Saturday against President Obama, the founders of Black Lives Matter, Al Sharpton, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and former US Attorney General Eric Holder on Saturday for inciting a race war that led to the fatal Dallas police shootings.
It was reported that the federal class action lawsuit accuses the defendants of aiding and abetting murder, terrorist promotion of gang activity and civil rights violations of law enforcement officers and seeks damages of more than $2 billion.
Klayman is hoping police forces around the country will join him in the class action lawsuit. He was on FOX Business News to discuss his filing.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio was on FOX Business after five Dallas cops were murdered by a racist killer. He shared the following about the difference between Obama and Trump when it comes to law enforcement:
“Now everything seems to be racial. The President [Obama] laid the groundwork in 2009. When a white officer arrested a black professor and even at that time way back then he said that more Hispanics and Blacks are being arrested more than others and then he had to do a little summit drinking beer with those two people at the White House. But I think that set the tone about our President. He’s ah, by the way in Dallas, why is it maybe a hate crime. I call it a racial type crime. Why don’t they send the DOJ Civil Rights down there right away like they do on other situations and do a big investigation on the racial component of this investigation? … I have said for years this is a war on cops…. Believe me it will be a different game when he [Trump] becomes President.”
President Obama took time to meet with the current president of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan yesterday. At home the US was rocked with the news of the deaths of 5 police officers and another 7 critically injured in Dallas.
The Afghan News outlet Khaama Press, reported that “President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani met with his American counterpart President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the Warsaw summit in Poland. The Office of the Afghan President said Afghan’s Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah was also present during the meeting.
Khaama Press reported that Obama has extended the presence of the US forces in Afghanistan considering the assessments of the political and military officials and commitments of the government and people of Afghanistan. Obama apparently said that the vision and perspective of the government of national unity has encouraged the United States to continue supporting the government and people of Afghanistan.
Due to Obama’s policies in the US, cops are being murdered, the national debt is near $20 trillion, Americans are forced to buy health insurance,and more people are on food stamps and out of work than ever reported. Due to Obama’s policies in the world, the Taliban is taking over Afghanistan, Iraq is in the hands of ISIS and Iran, Libya is run by ISIS, Europe and the US have been invaded by Muslims from the Middle East, and the US is perceived as weak worldwide. What a mess!
New evidence provided by Obama’s brother and former best man, Malik Obama, shows a draft of President Barack Obama’s book ‘Dreams From My Father’ with questionable comments and edits attached. The notes and sticky notes on the draft indicate that large portions of the book were not written by Obama. This comes from information recently released by WeSearchr (a new media platform for crowdfunded information bounties on news, politics, current events, and celebrity gossip).
Obama has always maintained that he wrote his books by himself. The manuscript is covered in sticky notes that say things like “Not O.” According to Malik Obama, the sticky notes were written by Barack Obama. The big takeaway is that the sticky notes confirm that certain sections of the book were written by Obama and others were not.
In 2008 author Jack Cashill wrote a book about Obama where according to his research Obama did not author his books. Cashill believed Obama’s friend and terrorist, Bill Ayers wrote his books. Cashill’s research was not surprisingly ignored by the mainstream media.
On one page, the sentence “My grandfather was a Muslim.” is crossed out. If this is the case then it is additional evidence that Obama is a Muslim. According to Islam, the religion is passed from the father to the children. If Obama’s grandfather and father were Muslims, then Obama is a Muslim too.
As far as the claim that the US has gained 14 million jobs, this is not accurate for a number of reasons.
Firstly, when Obama makes this claim he begins his calculation in February of 2010, nearly two years after he took over the Presidency. If Obama begins counting when in January 2008 — which is how job growth is normally measured — the number of private-sector jobs has increased just 5.6 million.
Secondly, when considering the number of new entrants into the job force, of more than 20 million, then Obama actually lost 14 million jobs. When compared to Reagan, for the six years starting in 1982, the population grew by 12.4 million but the number of jobs grew by 18.4 million.
Thirdly, a large percent of the number of new jobs that are counted by Obama are actually part time jobs. This phenomenon is related to Obamacare which resulted in the unintended consequence of reducing the number of full time jobs being replaced by part time jobs.
Finally, when comparing Obama’s 14 million jobs lost to other economic disasters created by his administration, the number is really outrageous. With an increase in the national debt of around $10 trillion during his administration, the US lost each job at a cost of more than $70,000 per job to the American taxpayer.
