Newt Gingrich at GOP National Convention



And Lyin' Ted Embarrassed Texas by not Being Gracious

Texans are polite, respectful and gracious people. I doubt that they will forget how Cruz conducted himself, while representing Texas at the convention,


CLEVELAND — Longtime Donald Trump ally Roger Stone laid into Ted Cruz minutes after his refusal to endorse the GOP nominee on Wednesday, calling him a "dumb son of a bitch" and a "despicable human being."
Stone, who spoke to The Hill as he left the Quicken Loans Arena, warned that the Texas senator's public unwillingness to back Trump would come back to haunt him.
"By Ted Cruz not supporting the nominee, he's exempted himself from real conservatives," he said. "No voter gives a crap about what Ted Cruz does. The only person this hurts is Ted Cruz."
He continued to excoriate Cruz, whom delegates showered with boos as they realized he wasn't going to endorse Trump during his speech to the convention.
"Ted Cruz thinks he's Ronald Reagan. T he problem is he's not anything near Reagan in terms of being an inspiring, likable figure," Stone said. "He's a dumb son of a bitch who thinks he's smarter than everybody else."
"He's a despicable human being," he added

    Only thing worse than that is a dumb son of a bitch who thinks he's smarter than everybody else.... combined.

    Hard to get along with, either way, by definition....

    2. Think thus, Doug -

      Bob, a s.o.b., thinks he is smarter than Quirk.

      Bob, a s.o.b., thinks he is smarter than Rufus.

      Bob is even worse, he is a son of a bitch who thinks he is smarter than both of them put together.

      If Bob, a s.o.b., thought he were smarter than Doug he'd be a dumb s.o.b., but he'd still be smarter than Quirk and Rufus added together.

      Does this help ?

      If it doesn't don't ask again cause it's all I've got.

  2. Lyin' Ted, however smart he may be, is a son of a bitch because he signed the form in the debates pledging to support the Republican nominee, whomever it might be, and he has crapped out and is not doing so.

    Thus confirming his nickname as true, Lyin' Ted.

    Three days shot and little accomplished at the GOP Convention.

    The first day was a nothing. The 2nd day was dominated by Milania's speech only to find out that parts of it were plagiarized and then by the Trump team's efforts to stonewall on it. The third day was dominated by the revised Milania story up to around 10:00 pm when Gingrich and Pence showed up. However, though both Gingrich and Pence gave good speeches they were overshadowed by Ted Cruz' speech.

    Until Cruz showed up the convention had been a dull, disjointed affair. Even after Cruz showed up and motivated the crowd all the news, with the exception of positive comments on the Trump family, has centered on the negative, Melania's speech and Ted Cruz.

    The night should have been about Mike Pence. However, focus groups (Republicans and Independents) on both FOX and CNN, though they said they were very positively moved by Pence, said that his nomination didn't move their opinion on Trump at all.

    Three days down only one to go.

    Trump can turn it around on Day 4; however, he didn't do anything to help himself today by giving the Times a story on foreign policy. First, he said that NATO's 28 member states can't assume that the US will automatically come to their defense if they are attacked (which is basically the only reason for the alliance). Then he said that he doesn't think that the US should lecture other countries (think Turkey or Russia) on rights abuses when the US has problems of our own. Those problems? Trumps example, the two cop shootings in California and Baton Rouge.

    Why would Trump preempt his own speech tonight?

    The convention to this point has been a clusterfuck and a gift to Hillary. It's been disorganized and appears to be poorly planned both from a political and a stage crafting point of view. The optics have been bad and the only unity has been against Cruz.

    We'll see if Trump can save it tonight.

  4. NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A TV analyst for Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union pleaded guilty Tuesday to receiving nearly $500,000 in kickbacks for filling unneeded prescriptions for himself and recruiting others to the scheme.

    Peter Pappas, of Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit health fraud in federal court in Newark. The pharmaceutical salesman admitted he was recruited by a marketing company that was paid by pharmacies to refer people whose insurance paid for compounded medication including pain creams, scar creams and vitamins.

    Pappas admitted that he recruited others to join the scheme, including people using a health benefit program for service members and their families managed by the U.S. Department of Defense.

    He admitted that he attempted to recruit beneficiaries from TRICARE because they gave high reimbursements for compounded medication and cream, federal prosecutors said.
    Pappas could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He’s to be sentenced on October 25th. He has since deleted his Facebook and Twitter accounts.

  5. This political event has as much long term importance to the voting public at what you had for dinner on the past Thursday in June. Political conventions serve one purpose, to rally the troops, line up the money and start the race.

    The voting US public has a memory of a gnat. Trump should send Lyin' Ted the finest box of Belgian chocolates and a $500 bouquet of flowers for helping Trump unite the party. People are not voting for Trump as much as they are telling Washington to go fuck itself.

    So far, it is working in spades.

      To me, the optics belie that.

      First, there are the people who are not there. You can say what you want about Kasich, Bush, Paul, Romney and the others who are not there but they do represent parts of the GOP.

      Second, the thing Trump has had going the whole campaign was the enthusiasm he generated among his base. Well, his base is well represented in Cleveland and it's been far from enthusiastic. The first two nights the convention center was clearing about by a little after 10:00 pm. It was reported that people were leaving even during the main speakers gig each night. Last night, the enthusiasm ramped up but only because they had Terrible Ted to boo at.

      Third, Trump may be right when he says 'any news is good news'. If he is, I am completely off base on this; however, I don't know how you can blame plagiarism charges on the Dems or the Media. Positive? I don't see how it could be.

      Fourth, there is a conspiracy theory going around that says Trump planned the chaos we see at the convention on purpose because that's the atmosphere in which he operates best. I don't see it. Mainly, because I don't think he is that smart.

      To me the convention, from the people chosen to speak to how they are scheduled on the program to the content of their message, has been for the most part a clusterf**k though it did start to improve around the 10:00 o'clock hour last night. It seems, to me, to show the lack of depth and experience in the Trump organization. I mean even the Pence speech was at odds with the very things Trump was saying to the NYT earlier in the day.

      As far as I could see, there have only been two things the media has concentrated on over the first three days and today until the main speakers get up there, Milania and Cruz.

      You can argue that the convention hasn't hurt Trump to this point, but IMO it has been a big zero in terms of helping him. As I said above,

      The night should have been about Mike Pence. However, focus groups (Republicans and Independents) on both FOX and CNN, though they said they were very positively moved by Pence, said that his nomination didn't move their opinion on Trump at all.

      I don't know what kind of a boost Trump will get in donations after the convention. But to me up until now it seems he has been wasting a great opportunity.

  9. Ah it continues.

    The National Union of Students has voted to remove the right of Jewish students to choose their representative on the union’s Anti-Racism and Anti-Fascism Committee. In previous years, the Jewish student representative bodies (representing around 8,500 registered Jewish students) were consulted and had a say in choosing the Jewish representative on the committee. That is no longer the case, and now the decision will be solely that of NUS’s National Executive Committee and its President Malia Bouattia. Indeed it was Bouattia who approved the amendment, using her casting vote.

    Malia Bouattia has called Birmingham University a “Zionist outpost in higher education” because it has “the largest Jsoc [Jewish student society] in the country.” She has railed against “Zionist-led media outlets”, defended Palestinian terrorism as “resistance” and voted against condemning ISIS. When CAA and others called on her to retract her comments, condemn terrorism and endorse the NUS policy on antisemitism she counterclaimed instead.

    Given Malia Bouattia’s track record on Jewish matters, it may not come as a surprise that it was her casting vote that condemned the Jewish student body to lose the right to choose its representative in the NUS campaign against racism and fascism.

    The Union of Jewish Students has condemned the decision, saying that this just another example of “Jews being pushed out of university life”.

    This is another instance of the welfare of Jewish students being deliberately ignored, and voices of Jewish students being shunned. Furthermore, by replacing the Jewish students’ representative with an unendorsed committee member, there is a clear risk that the perpetrators of antisemitism will feel protected.

    https://antisemitism.uk/national-union-of-students-strips-jewish-students-of-right-to-chose-their-representative/

    Sorta like this blog's POV about who should be allowed to represent the Jewish POV.

    Deuce, Rufus and Rat all have made accusations that I am not a "real" Jew, Deuce even said he never met in real life a "jew" like me and questioned if I was one....

    Maybe the collective here will be happy if Jews across the world were appointed official Kapos to represent them.

      The English major for Idaho once again proves he lacks the ability to understand a point within the context in which it is made. Instead, he requires monosyllable words in short sentences that do not require you to think or formulate associations. Unfortunately, most people have progressed beyond that stage by the time they leave kindergarden leaving him with a small audience for the drivel he spouts.

      When he was told, that the GOP had wasted the first three days of the convention he noted that the third day wasn't over yet, a simplistic observation that misses the point that the big story of the previous day is what holds the attention of the media for the entire next day up until about the 10:00 o'clock hour when the main speaker of the day is usually introduced

      On Tuesday, Milania Trump gave her speech. Shortly after, the plagiarism charges arose. Those charges and those about the Trump campaign cover up sucked the wind out of any positives coming out of the convention for all of Wednesday up until the main speeches in the evening. And what were they replaced with? Pence? Gingrich? No. Cruz. That and the fact that Trump gave a major and controversial foreign policy speech to the NYT that was 180 degrees from what the new VP nominee was saying. Yet, despite the new wrinkle the panel on CNN at 2:00 am today was still talking about the plagiarism kerfuffle.

    1MDB: Malaysian PM under pressure over $1bn US fraud case

    Malaysian PM Najib Razak is facing pressure internationally and at home amid US allegations of massive fraud at state investment fund 1MDB.
    The fund was set up by Mr Najib in 2009 with the stated aim of boosting the Malaysian economy.
    But US Attorney General Loretta Lynch said evidence showed it had defrauded Malaysians "on an enormous scale".
    On Wednesday, US authorities moved to seize more than $1bn (£761m) in assets related to the fund.
    Mr Najib is not named in the papers and has consistently denied wrongdoing.
    But he is identifiable as "Malaysian Official 1", whose account allegedly received millions in funds originating from 1MDB.
    The $1bn the US hopes to seize would make up only a proportion of the more than $3.5bn (£2.6bn) allegedly diverted.

    Fancypants College In Cleveland Offers SAFE SPACE For Students Traumatized By Republican Convention


    Case Western Reserve University is providing a “safe space” for students who are upset about this week’s Republican National Convention.

    The fancypants private school in Cleveland — where tuition, fees and room and board cost $60,304 per year — is located just over 4 miles from Quicken Loans Arena, where the GOP convention is occurring.

    A July 11 statement in The Daily, Case Western’s internal e-newsletter, informs students — and professors, and administrators — that the private school’s Social Justice Institute “will host a ‘safe space'” in the basement of concrete-laden Crawford Hall for the duration of the convention, which runs from July 18 to July 21.

    “After extensive consultation among our leadership team and discussions in last week’s open forums, we have decided that the university will reduce its on-campus operations significantly from Monday, July 18, through the close of the convention Thursday, July 21,” the statement explains.

    Classes have been either cancelled or moved off campus. Faculty members, students and most staffers are supposed to take virtually the entire week off. “Deans and unit leaders have been asked to work with their teams to determine how to maintain essential services with the fewest number of staff physically on the campus.”

    “University Counseling Services will continue to offer walk-in services for students who want to talk with someone about their concerns related to recent events and/or the upcoming convention,” the Case Western statement says...



    These are the snowflakes we will be turning the country over to. Is there any question as to why we are so screwed up as a nation?
