    C-SPAN changed their open phone line labels after an overwhelming number of Democratic viewers called on Wednesday night proclaiming their support for President Donald Trump in the upcoming election. “I’m a longtime Democrat, born and raised … After watching tonight … I have made up my mind. I am definitely gonna vote for Donald Trump,” said one of the many voters who dialed in. Before the Republican National Convention, C-SPAN’s open phone lines were labeled as open for “Democrats,” “Republicans,” and “Other” viewers to call into and share their opinions on-air. After Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention,...
  • N.Y.C. Tenants Say They Were Tricked Into Appearing in R.N.C. Video

    It started with an unexpected call last week from Lynne Patton, a longtime Trump associate who oversees federal housing programs in New York. Ms. Patton told a leader of a tenants’ group at the New York City Housing Authority, the nation’s largest, that she was interested in speaking with residents about conditions in the authority’s buildings, which have long been in poor repair. Four tenants soon assembled in front of a video camera and were interviewed for more than four hours by Ms. Patton herself. Three of the tenants were never told that their interviews would be edited into a...

    The 2020 Republican National Convention (RNC) this week featured a notable amount of diversity in its speaker lineup that included nearly two dozen Black, Hispanic, Asian, and even handicapped speakers. The speakers delivered heartfelt speeches about their own personal struggles, how they became Republican, or how they have benefitted under the Trump administration. One of the most memorable speeches from the first night of the RNC was from Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican senator of South Carolina, who said he went from flunking four subjects in high school to realizing that education was the closest thing to “magic.” “Our family...

    Brandon Straka and Mike Harlow were walking away from the Republican National Convention last night and on the way to their hotel when they were insulted with homophobic slurs and then physically assaulted by BLM activists. A woman yells at them "He's a Donald Trump supporter! He supports racism!"! He supports racism!" Straka and Harlow have been touring the country attending events for Straka's #WalkAway Campaign, which states as its mission that it's "time to take our country back from radical leftists" and in effect walk away from a Democrat party that no longer represents values of equality, respect, or individualism. The Post...
  • Democrats Failed The Convention Optics Test

    The Federalist ^ | August 28, 2020 | Ben Domenech
    In comparing the DNC and RNC, the optics and the policy contrasts could not have been clearer. And that was even before the fireworks. In the past two weeks of conventions, during which DemocratsÂ’ media champions have increasingly raised alarms about the direction of the race, is that this year the optics of these conventions mattered most, and could not have been more different. And they should worry Democrats. Very few people tune in to these things who arenÂ’t already decided about who they want to support. Undecideds are often the spouse of the decided viewer, gleaning information about what...
  • Trump Goes Scorched Earth In RNC 2020 Acceptance Speech

    And on Day 4, there was no more Mr. Nice Guy! Republicans spent the better part of three nights in their convention presenting softer and gentler sides of President Trump, but the president gets the final words and he came out Thursday in a fighting mood. His acceptance speech detailed his successes and offered promises aplenty for a second term, but the emphasis and energy were committed to a scorched-earth attack on Joe Biden and the Democrats. Trump threw so many punches at his opponent that, had it been a real heavyweight boxing match, the referee would have stopped it...

    UPDATE: During an interview with Fox and Friends Friday morning, Senator Rand Paul described the "horrific scene," said they would have been killed or very seriously injured without the police and called for the coordinated, organized mob violence to stop. "It was horrific....right as we got to the policeman, fortunately or I don't we would have survived, we got to the policeman and I don't think the policeman recognized me and as I came closer the crowd was shouting my name and it doubled to 60 and it double again to 120," Paul described. "I can't tell you how I'm...

    The Democrats held a 4-day long Festivus celebration last week. Participants spent their days and nights cataloguing America’s sins as they read through their obligatory List of Grievances. By contrast President Trump wrapped up his party’s convention last night on an optimistic high note. And fireworks. “How can Democrats lead a country they want to tear down?” Although that’s not what you’ll hear if you tune into Fake Media for a recap; they called the President’s acceptance speech “dark” and “repugnant.” Of course they also pre-determined that Joey’s speech “embraced the light and spoke against the darkness” - before he...

    by Greg Reynolds Just moments before the President was about to speak Thursday evening, a leftist mob of so-called "protesters" surrounding the White House assaulted an elderly couple walking on the street nearby. And D.C. Metro police officers stood by on a nearby sidewalk and did absolutely nothing. Protesters followed and heckled the elderly man and woman — who was wearing a “Trump 2020” t-shirt. “Get the f**k out!” a protester shouted through a megaphone at the couple. “Why?” the man can be heard responding. A female protester could be seen running at the man and pushing him. The man...

    The parents of Kayla Mueller, a young American aid worker killed by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in 2015, excoriated the Obama administration during the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Thursday for doing nothing to ease their daughter’s plight. Mueller was held captive, tortured, and “raped repeatedly” by the vicious group’s late leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Former “President Obama refused to meet with us until ISIS had already beheaded other Americans,” Carl Mueller proclaimed at the RNC. “To this day, we’ve never heard from [then-Vice President] Joe Biden" --SNIP-- Carl and Marsha Mueller stressed that President Barack Obama and his...

    Addressing the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, GOP candidate Madison Cawthorn detailed his personal journey of recovering from a car accident that left him in a wheelchair at age 20 and going on to run for Congress at age 25. Why it matters: Cawthorn, a motivational speaker who defeated the Trump-endorsed candidate in the June primary for North Carolina's 11th congressional district, is likely to become the youngest Republican ever elected to Congress in November. He will fill the seat once held by White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. What he's saying: "At 18, I was in a...

    On the second night of the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump resorted once again to the favorite trick in his bag: a televised surprise. An impromptu naturalization ceremony put on as part of the Tuesday night festivities was, as a political matter, an attempt to show a softer side of a president with one of the most anti-immigration records in recent memory. Senior Trump administration officials widely view the law as a joke, and have often traded quips over how consequence-free their infractions have been and how much Democrats harp on the violations, two ex-officials said. Some Trump lieutenants have...

    It is the kind of move that, had the players been changed, would have had Brian Stelter pontificating loudly about the inference of intolerance. But as the Republican convention kicked off last night, we saw a very curious decision made by the production staff at Brian’s network, and you have to raise a number of questions about the move, especially considering some of the comments made by Stelter himself. Kim Klacik made a quick name for herself with a campaign ad she made to run for the representative seat in her hometown of Baltimore. That a forceful person of color...

    Why is Nancy saying that President Trump's supporters are 'enemies of the state'? Is she SO stupid that she doesn't know that expression 'Enemies of the state', was cast in the faces of all and any people who challenged the STASI? With that allegation, many went to gulags and were NEVER seen or heard from again. How incredibly ignorant Liberals ARE!
