~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
If you missed the 2016 Republican National Convention then thanks to the failure of the mainstream media you missed a speech by Colorado’s U. S. Senate candidate, Darryl Glenn.
Doing a disservice to Colorado voters and to Glenn who considers himself, an ‘Unapologetic Christian, Constitutional Conservative, Pro-Life, Second Amendment Loving Veteran.’
As reported by 9-News Network, not one of the major news networks or cable news outlets carried Glenn’s electrifying speech.
…Glenn is a compelling speaker in a closely watched Senate race. And he was speaking about race and violence in America.
His message deserved to be widely heard.
Those who did see the speech had a split verdict. The Washington Post said Glenn was one of its losers of the day, calling his speech ‘a series of hackneyed one-liners and blatant appeals for applause’[…]
There was no shortage of memorable speakers at this year’s 2016 Republican National Convention, some of which should have made the front page but due to unforeseen circumstances were overlooked.
Laura Ingraham’s speech was one of those speeches.
Ingraham took on Progressives from Hillary Clinton onward, after which Ingraham pointed out the mainstream media and then called them on their shenanigans.
O7:43 of video:
“Donald Trump…he understands that America’s greatness, it comes from her people. It comes from her freedom…
Hillary Clinton, well she believes our greatness can only be found in the every growing, bloated government bureaucracy that only she, her majesty, can rule over….She believes that there’s a government solution for every problem….”
When Senator Ted Cruz stepped on to the stage at the 2016 Republican National Convention last night, it was to a rousing applause.
At the beginning of speech, Cruz in ten words, congratulated Donald Trump for winning the 2016 Republic Party presidential nomination.
“I congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night.”
Ten words which within seconds of uttering them were proven hollow as the Senator from Texas dispatching plenty of anti-Trump dog whistles never mentions Trump by name for the duration of his speech sending everything downhill from there unless, of course, you’re a NeverTrumper.
As the seconds rolled on, the message became clear that Cruz was taking the low road.
Mid-way through, the crowd began shouting, urging Cruz to endorse the Republican Party presidential nominee. Cruz who toward the end of his 2016 presidential run to become the nominee collaborated with the GOPe out of desperation to become the 2016 Republican Party nominee would do no such thing.
While some were thrilled, the expressions of many in the arena said it all and after nearly 20 plus minutes of anti-Trump dog whistles and setting himself up for the 2020 presidential campaign, Cruz proving himself a bitter loser, again doing the GOPe’s dirty work delivered the ultimate payback on live television with his refusal to endorse Trump.
The speech ended with Cruz being booed off the stage.
On the one hand, the snub by Cruz displeased not only Donald Trump, his family, supporters and many in the Republican Party who decided that it was time to move on but Republican Party donors.
On the other hand, the snub elated the establishment, i.e., Progressives of both parties, pundits and the mainstream media giving opposition plenty of ammunition to use at the DNC Convention next week.
Speaking of which, it was more than 13 minutes before Cruz mentioned Hillary Clinton’s name.
How ironic is it that Ted Cruz during the first 13 minutes who spoke of free speech, the Constitution, liberty, etc. would say, “People are fed up with politicians that don’t listen to them…” when Cruz just months ago exposed himself not being the Constitutionalist that he pretends to be. (Cruz has proven himself to be one of those politicians that he has often lambasted.)
It is at about 18:51 of the video that Cruz with a half-smile on his face drove the ball home.
“We deserve leaders to stand for principle to unite us all behind shared values to cast aside anger for love…”
Pot calling the kettle black?
“That is the standard that we should expect from everybody and to those listening, please don’t stay home in November…”
[shouts of “Trump, Trump, Trump” can be heard all around as the audience was losing its patience with the Senator from Texas.]
“If you love our country and love your children as much as I know that you do stand and speak and vote your conscience.
Vote for candidates up and down the ticket who YOU trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution…”
[A smack in the face to Trump supporters, Trump himself and New York.]
New York Republicans pissed and everyone having received the message shouted at Cruz, “Endorse Trump. Endorse Trump.”
[Full speech at bottom of post.]
Ted Cruz’s final words before walking offstage:
“We will defend freedom and be faithful to the Constitution. We will unite the party. We will unite the country.
It took Lyin’ Ted less than 20 minutes to fracture three days of party unity which the media and opposition will try to ride straight through the November elections.
As reported by Katie Pavlich of Townhall, the RNC had received, approved and dispatched the speech in advance. “Cruz didn’t change any of the text during delivery.”
Politico reports that Cruz informed Trump by phone earlier this week that no endorsement was forthcoming.
BREAKING: Sources with the RNC say @Tedcruz speech was ‘classless.’ Party officials expected him to congratulate @realDonaldTrump.
For more than 20 minutes, the audience was riveted holding on to every word by Benghazi security members Mark Geist and John Tiegen Monday night at the 2016 Republican Party Convention as they described the events that unfolded during their rescue mission.
By sunlight four Americans, U. S. Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, Ambassador, Information Officer Sean Smith, Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods and Tyron Woods (Navy Seal) and at least three dozen others were wounded in what is the biggest cover up in American history.
Mark Geist, U.S. Marine Corps veteran, Fought in Battle of Benghazi Mark “Oz” Geist was a member of the Annex Security Team that fought the Battle of Benghazi in Libya from September 11 to September 12, 2012. A Colorado native, Geist joined the United States Marine Corps in 1984 and served for 12 years.
John Tiegen, U.S. Marine Corps veteran, Fought in Battle of Benghazi John “Tig” Tiegen was a member of the Annex Security Team that fought during the attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. He is responsible for saving many lives and has been recognized for his bravery. He has since co-authored the New York Times best-selling book 13 Hours, the harrowing tale of what really happened in Benghazi.
For the mainstream media who is working overtime to give Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama cover for their dereliction of duty, no one who has followed the Benghazi Islamic terrorist attacks, read the book and/or went to see Michael Bay’s movie, 13 Hours is buying their lies.
Most people with an outstanding warrant are smart enough to steer clear of situations that might involve coming into contact with law enforcement.
In what may qualify as one of America’s stupidest criminals, community activist, Kathy Wray Coleman was picked up Monday in front of the Republican National Convention not because she was inciting a riot or creating chaos but because of an outstanding felony warrant on community organizer.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Wray, the first person arrested in front of the Convention yesterday is wanted for almost striking running down law enforcement officers last year with her vehicle.
