    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ team is already plotting out a strategy to run against Donald Trump for the long haul. The plan focuses less on making a quick splash in places like Iowa or New Hampshire and more on outlasting the former president in a battle for Republican convention delegates. Even though it’s early and DeSantis isn’t officially a candidate yet, in talks behind the scenes, an expanded map is viewed as one of the keys to victory, three sources close to the governor said. “There have been multiple conversations about delegates and how they are picked in various states...

    Today, law enforcement officials shared findings to date of the investigation into the shooting that occurred at the Eugene Simpson Stadium Park on Wednesday, June 14, 2017. Analysis of Hodgkinson’s laptop computers show online activity the night before the shooting; however, no Internet searches were discovered the morning of the shooting. The Internet searches Hodgkinson performed the night before the shooting included a Google map search from Alexandria to his home in Belleville and a Google search of the “2017 Republican Convention.” While online, he also accessed a financial account and one of his Facebook accounts, where he visited a...

    Baltimore is burning because community organizers and various thugs are tearing the city apart in the aftermath of the strange death of a young black man who was in the custody of police — and President Obama is trying to make things worse.In an incredible non-coincidence the rioting follows a weekend rally by the Occupy Wall Street-like Baltimore Peoples Assembly. There also was a first wave of rioting over the weekend. Outside activists have been flooding into Baltimore, according to reports. Police and civilians have been injured. A CVS store was looted and set on fire. Rioters chopped up fire...

    A super PAC founded by Clinton aides invited the thugs who harassed Senator Rand Paul and his wife after the Republican National Convention at the White House on August 27, 2020. Other prominent Republicans exiting the RNC were also confronted by a leftist rage mob organized by the Party Majority PAC, as well as the Revolutionary Communist Party‘s front group “Refuse Fascism,” whose cult-like leader Bob Avakian endorsed Joe Biden earlier this month, and a Democratic Socialists of America-aligned group called Shut Down DC.

  • The Violence Is Not New

    In 2008, around the time of the Republican National Convention, a white 20-something male approached the Texas Governor's Mansion and threw a Molotov cocktail at it. The mansion burned down. The case remains unsolved, though federal and state authorities have long presumed it was a left-leaning anarchist. In fact, around the same time, left-wing anarchists were fighting police in the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota, during the GOP's convention, and some plotted to go back to Texas to commit acts of violence. In 2010, Andrew Joseph Stack crashed a plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas. Members of the...

    1. We attended the RNC on the South Lawn of the White House Thursday night. And when we departed the Democrat Party mob and rioters were violent, crazed, and organized. There were no peaceful protesters whatsoever.— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) August 30, 2020 2. The police were trying to protect the attendees but they were outnumbered. We could also see and feel that this was deadly serious.— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) August 30, 2020 3. The police pushed the perimeter out in every direction. The mob was not spontaneous or organic. These are paramilitary-type forces, well-financed and networked,— Mark...

    Source: Screenshot via the RNCPoet Carl Sandberg had a special relationship with hard-working Americans, the people whose sweat and tears built this country. Ordinary people who met life head-on and accomplished some extraordinary things. The two conventions were like paintings of the same country done in stark contrasts. The Democrat convention painted a dark picture of a nation whose glass was more than half empty. “If you think things can’t get worse…,” bellowed former First Lady Michelle Obama. The Republicans, in contrast, hoisted a glass that was again on its way to overflowing. One side was pessimistic and angry....

    There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28 (KJV) The difference between the DNC Trump hate fest and the Trump Convention could not be any more stark. It was the difference between the East and the West, do you want to Make America Great or Burn America Down? After a week of how racist and evil America/Trump is and by far the worst country in history President Trump reminds Americans of what a great country they have and why the...

    Joe Biden must be hearing the footsteps. Okay, he’s probably hearing a lot of other things down in his basement – voices in his head, perhaps, not to mention the birds chirping outside…. But you know what I mean. The Republican convention was far superior to the Democrats’ last week, in just about every way. To sum up the theme, President Trump called Joe Biden “a Trojan horse for socialism,” and that’s what this fight is all about. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…. Last night, I loved all the griping on Twitter from the Beautiful People in LaLa...

    You know the first two nights of the Republicans' virtual national convention have gone well when you see that Politico's morning Playbook leads with a lame joke about the U.S. Postal Service hiring a new lobbyist, aimed at reviving the post office non-scandal. Ho, ho, ho! The more pertinent news is that both parties have adapted deftly to the virtual format. Democrats invented an amusing roll call procedure -- showing people from each state touting the party's virtues -- and Republicans even improved on it a little. Democrats did a good job of highlighting Joe Biden's attractive personal qualities by...

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway suggested Wednesday that President Donald Trump might postpone his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention due to concerns about Hurricane Laura’s potentially devastating impact on the Gulf Coast. Asked whether Trump would delay his headliner address set to take place on Thursday, the final night of Republicans’ four-day nominating event, Conway told reporters that campaign officials would not rule out a possible adjustment to the convention schedule.

    Chen Guangcheng, a dissident who spent seven years imprisoned in China, told the Republican National Convention (RNC) Wednesday the Communist Party was an “enemy of humanity.” Chen, a blind self-taught legal scholar from a rural community, spent those years in both prison and house arrest after police detained him for his advocacy against forced abortions, a common policy under China’s “one-child” rule that prevented families from birthing siblings. Currently, due to a precipitous decline in population, China has expanded that policy to two children but is still believed to force women to kill illegal unborn children. In his address Wednesday,...

    It seems so long ago that Donald Trump was warmly favored by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the duo hanging out at Mar-a-Lago over the holidays and hailing him as a "masterful politician." Now, every day, Scarborough rips into Trump in the most personal terms, and even rips his wife. In a remarkably bitter attack on Wednesday morning, Scarborough savaged Melania Trump as "shameless, absolutely shameless."Scarborough was incensed that in her speech last night at the RNC convention, Melania criticized people who are mean on social media, but had not criticized President Trump's tweets about poor Joe and Mika, as...

Kristi Noem (R) on Wednesday lauded first lady Melania Trump's keynote speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC), adding "no mother in this country" wants to raise children in Democratic-led cities. Noem told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" host Sandra Smith that the president's wife delivered a "powerful" speech showcasing "her mother's heart" Tuesday night, and exemplified how the president respects women. Following the first lady's speech, Trump walked up to her and kissed her on the cheek before the two walked inside the White House hand-in-hand. "I think what's incredibly important is that mothers get up every...

    Thanks to former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Americans were reminded about the corruption that has surrounded the Bidens for years. As she recalled for viewers during night two of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, it was Hunter Biden's suspicious work in Ukraine that led to the bogus and sensational impeachment trial of President Trump earlier this year. As one of the members of the White House's legal team during the trial, Bondi knows more than most just how deep the corruption goes. "When you look at his 47 year career in politics, the people who benefited are his...
