    Milwaukee looks a lock to host the 2024 Republican National Convention after a GOP site selection panel recommended the city Friday. The GOP panel’s choice will go through a final approval process during an August meeting of the full Republican National Committee in Chicago. “Today, the Site Selection Committee voted to recommend Milwaukee to host the 2024 Republican National Convention and it is a testament to the forthright and professional behavior embraced by Milwaukee’s city leaders throughout the process. A final decision will be made by Chairwoman [Ronna] McDaniel and the full RNC in the coming weeks.” RNC senior adviser...
  • Latest Supreme Court rulings tell me it's time for a new constitutional convention

    Desert Sun via MSN ^ | 3 July 2022 | Opinion by Douglas Sexton
    The latest Supreme Court rulings make it clear: Our current constitution is ill-equipped to provide the necessary legal structures and framework of ideas necessary for democracy to flourish as an institution in the 21st century. This may be the real point of the latest rulings of our highest court. Rather than hold the position that the court ruled inappropriately, consider the argument that the court ruled correctly based upon the document they had at hand, namely, the United States Constitution. During the 1970s and ’80s, conservative groups dreamed of holding a constitutional convention. Why? To write into our governing document...

    The reaction to the National Rifle Association hosting its conference in Houston, Texas continues to draw unhinged responses. Ethan Klein on Friday broadcast calls to violence during his "H3 After Dark" episode which he hosts with his wife, Hila Klein. They have nearly 3 million subscribers. The Blaze TV's Elijah Schaffer tweeted out a clip of Ethan Klein saying "someone should bomb that building" when it comes to where the NRA conference is being held. Hila Klein initially reacts with an "mhm," seemingly in agreement. It's important to mention that Klein walked back his remarks immediately, though he then went...

    A pair of Republicans want Ohio to join a national effort to amend the U.S. Constitution with term limits for members of Congress and a balanced federal budget. "It’s time for the states to step up," Rep. Riordan McClain, R-Upper Sandusky, said. His proposal, House Joint Resolution 1, would submit Ohio's official application for a Convention of States to create new amendments in three specific areas: A balanced budget, term limits and reducing the jurisdiction of the federal government. "Congress has had plenty of time to act on the subject items that we’ve laid out," McClain said. "But they've shown...

    Dear Southern Baptists: Though I am an elderly man, I am your kid. And though I am no longer a pastor in a Southern Baptist church, I am employing skills and applying knowledge you nurtured in me beginning in 1950 when I first joined a Southern Baptist church at age nine. Through scholarships and grants you enabled me to graduate from a Baptist school, Samford University, and then attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Alabama Baptists surprised me in 1983-1985 by twice electing me president of the million-member Alabama Baptist State Convention. You licensed me to ministry in 1958 and ordained...

    Apparently the republicans in Georgia are not very happy with Governor Brian Kemp for blocking audits into transparent election fraud within the state. During his introduction to the delegates at the GOP convention yesterday the Georgia governor was greeted by jeers and boos from the crowd. It should be noted Brian Kemp is in charge of the voter integrity initiative within the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA), and recently requested that Mike Lindell be blocked from attending the conference in Tennessee.

    In this series I will relate the debates at the Federal Convention surrounding the structure and responsibilities of the US Senate. We’ll find that the Framers assigned the new government its functions, beyond those of the Confederation Congress, after the convention determined the mode of senatorial elections, and the number of senators per state. Like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle, the structure and powers of the various pieces of government shaped, and were shaped by, the checks and balances between the three branches and the states. The shape of each piece influenced the shape of adjacent pieces. The pulling of...

    The disastrous results of the 2020 election have proved a few things. They’re lessons hard learned, but if we are to survive as a free people, we must learn them. The lessons are as follows… The Republican Party (GOP) is essentially dead. The “Republican In Name Only” (RINO) career-politicians have completely turned their backs on Trump-supporting Patriots and made it crystal clear, in no uncertain terms, that they are willing to go on without us, and they would rather remain a minority party indefinitely, or go the way of the Whigs, than accept our support. When it comes to the...

    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,...

    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.

    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...

    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...
