    Alternate headline: “Ditka wraps up 2020 Republican nomination.” “I think it’s a problem,” Ditka said. “Anybody who disrespects this country and the flag. If they don’t like the country, they don’t like our flag, get the hell out.”…“I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick,” Ditka added. “He probably has no respect for me, that’s his choice. My choice is that I like this country, I respect our flag, and I don’t see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on.” That’s as pure as nationalism gets. What does he think of Richard Sherman’s press...

He suppressed his doubts, telling The College Fix in an email interview dissenters are branded traitors to the black community. In private, however, his concerns grew even as he took on leadership roles within the University of Memphis College Democrats and the College Democrats of Tennessee. Then, in 2014, Williams attended a meeting of the College Republicans at the University of Memphis...

    More than 70 Republicans have signed an open letter to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus urging him to stop spending any money to help Donald Trump win in November and shift those contributions to Senate and House races. The letter comes as a number of Republican senators and high-profile GOP national security officials have come forward saying they cannot vote for Trump. We believe that Donald Trumps divisiveness, recklessness, incompetence, and record-breaking unpopularity risk turning this election into a Democratic landslide, and only the immediate shift of all available RNC resources to vulnerable Senate and House races will prevent...

Vu has just put out a statement saying that he cannot bring himself to vote for Trump in the November general election. And he might not vote for Trump as a member of the electoral college, either.

It cost Carter the 1980 election, and might do similar damage to Trump.

    The Republican Party has taken a page straight out of the campaign books of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. What? No, were not kidding. In the partys 2016 platform, the GOP advocates for reinstating the Glass-Steagall Act, a Depression-era law that regulated the U.S. banking industry until it was repealed in 1999. Bringing the law back would lead to the breakup of major U.S. banks like JPMorgan Chase in order to separate investment banking from commercial banking.

    JULY 5--The Democratic Partys plan to crash this months Republican National Convention is heavy on gimmicks and stunts meant to highlight a possible Trumpocalypse, as well as to ridicule the presumptive GOP candidates purported spray tan, tiny fingers, and dog whistle proclivities. (snip) DNC officials also plan to infiltrate friendly union hotels and properties around the convention that Republicans will be patronizing to distribute care packages to those who will be sickened by Trumps nomination. (snip) The plan also envisions a citywide strike by fast food workers, presumably over the fight for a $15-an-hour minimum wage. (snip) http://thesmokinggun.com/documents/stupid/dnc-rnc-plan-645391

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Washington Post columnist George Will explained why he left the Republican Party over presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Will said, “I left it for the same reason I joined it in 1964 when I voted for Barry Goldwater, because I was a conservative. I leave for the same reason, I’m a conservative. To give you a time line, shortly after Trump became the presumptive nominee he had a summit meeting with Paul Ryan where they stressed their vast shared ground, which is more important than their differences. I thought that was puzzling...

    A time-lapse video recorded by convention organizers shows the first 36 hours of the arena's transformation from a few hours after Game 6 ended, to the start of construction. About 250 people will work inside the Q each day to ready the arena for the RNC. The Republican Party typically needs six to eight weeks to convert a space into the RNC convention floor. This year, the GOP only has four weeks but officials have said they are confident the Q will be ready in time for the convention.

    If you think that Donald Trump already has the Republican nomination locked up, then you don’t understand what is going on behind the scenes.  It has long been my contention that the elite will move heaven and earth in order to keep Trump from ever setting foot in the Oval Office.  One way that they could try to do this is by attempting to deny him the nomination at the Republican convention next month.  Over the past couple of days, the Washington Post, CNN and a whole host of other mainstream news outlets have been reporting on a new “last-ditch...
