Update: This tweet captures the afternoon session of the GOP convention:

The evening session featured many serious highlights and developed excellent message control (if you doubt how excellent the message projection was, compare it to the Romney convention mess). But the star was Melania Trump and the brief but spectacularly simple entrance of Donald J. Trump.
Melania was gorgeous in a white off the rack dress that was entirely age and situation appropriate, unlike the “outfits” or rather “costumes” squeezed into by Michelle Obama, which frequently feature “fashion” accessories which appear to be from the bin section of Pep Boys automotive parts.
It wasn’t just beauty. Melania connected with an entrancing speech in praise of her husband Donald J. Trump. Melania’s accent sweetened the appeal of this successful woman who immigrated to his country legally then became a citizen of the country she grew to love. Melania’s entire appearance was a powerful projection of message control as she spoke soothing words to the candidates that lost the primary race and assured the country that Donald Trump is a winner who loves the country. Along with the many mothers and women that spoke at the convention, Melania’s appearance was a force projection of message that boomed out the variant of the Trump campaign slogan Make America Safe Again.
Tonight, Hillary2016, the Obama Dimocrats, the Obama Dimocrat Party, and the nominee of the Dim convention along with every Dim elected official, walk into a trap dug by Hillary Clinton herself. It might not be a trap, it is likely a tomb. Hillary Clinton dug that tomb with excavation tools supplied by Donald J. Trump.
Since June 2015 when Donald Trump announced his run for President of the United States, a glaring curiosity we observed along with many others, manifested itself. We repeatedly noticed and repeatedly commented upon the zeitgeist wave Trump rides. The zeitgeist wave? We’ve repeatedly noted that Donald J. Trump will say something derided by Big Media and considered outrageous by the political master race – only to be vindicated as a Prophet and Messenger by world or domestic events.
Today, like every Summer of Trump day, will not be any different. Donald J. Trump will be wearing board shorts, hair slicked back, Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses halfway down his nose, Hawaiian shirt open to his navel, flip-flops on – his feet firmly planted on a surfboard riding the zeitgeist wave. Zeitgeist wave surfer dude – that’s the only explanation for Make America Safe Again:
CLEVELAND — The Trump campaign set “Make America Safe Again” as the theme of the Republican convention’s first night well before the attack that killed three police officers and wounded three others in Baton Rouge. But that attack, and the earlier shooting in Dallas that killed five officers, added weight and a new emphasis to Trump’s promise to protect Americans.
That wasn’t always the idea. Donald Trump himself started using the phrase “make America safe again” at the end of last year, but at the time, in the aftermath of the Paris massacre, it was a pledge to destroy the Islamic State and prevent terrorist attacks in the United States. Now, after Dallas and Baton Rouge, things are different. In a Sunday evening interview on Fox News’ “Hannity,” top Trump campaign official Paul Manafort said the make-America-safe idea has taken on an additional meaning.
“When we were putting the program together, we were talking about it from a national security standpoint, but we also felt that lawlessness in the cities is something that we needed to focus on,” Manafort said. “So we’re going to address that in the program, and unfortunately it’s even more appropriate tomorrow.” [snip]
“It’s the law-and-order candidate versus the Black Lives Matter candidate,” Gingrich told me in a phone interview Sunday. “Barack Obama has put together the worst race relations in years, and Hillary Clinton has been pandering to Black Lives Matter.”
Surf on zeitgeist wave surfer dude, surf on! Make America Safe Again after the past year and the past few weeks is zeitgeist ocean Yoda beach party dude. The zeitgeist wave is building for Trump:
There’s a similar view among Republican strategists who aren’t involved in the campaign. On Sunday I asked Curt Anderson, who ran Bobby Jindal’s presidential effort, how he saw the law and order issue playing out in a Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton race. Via email, here is Anderson’s entire response:
Everything that is happening in this messed-up world is helping Trump. Terror attacks in California, Nice, Florida….lunatics shooting cops in Dallas and Baton Rouge….all of it. It all helps Trump. If anyone cannot see this, they are willfully blind. Does it help enough for him to win? I dunno. But it clearly and obviously helps him. Why? Because he = strength, she = weakness. Period. Not complicated. He makes simple, straightforward declarative statements. She makes long, convoluted, and sophisticated arguments with a lot of caveats. Also — “Black Lives Matter” could be an albatross around the neck of a lot of Democrats.
HillaryIs44 dudes and dudettes: how many times did we repeat to the brain dead Hillary2016 campaign the smart Bill Clinton warning: “Better to be strong and wrong, than weak and right.” Trump is absolutely right in what he is saying about the state of the world and America – and the fact that Trump is also “strong” helps him enormously. Hillary Clinton’s statements are weak, foolish, and a depraved flight from reality.
Trump is correct and strong. Hillary Clinton with her foolish “Obama Third Term” campaign designed to defeat Bernie Sanders has placed the entire Democratic Party into the tomb. Hillary Clinton could have led the Democratic Party back to some form of sanity and run as a CHANGE candidate against Obama. Instead the entire Democratic Party is now the Obama Dimocrat Party and not a soul able to bring it back to sanity.
Tonight the gloves will come off. Hillary Clinton will hear “Benghazi” more than a Libyan travel agent hears that destination in a decade. General Michael Flynn and Sen. Tom Cotton will denounce Obama foreign policy.
Obama foreign policy and any Obama Third Term candidate deserve to be denounced. Japan teeters towards fascism after the “Asia tilt” Obama declared was so smart, Europe is undergoing a soft invasion by Muslims and refuses to wake up to the threat, Latin America is a mess of convulsions, poverty, and exports citizens illegally as policy to make their own soft invasion up north. The Iran Nuclear deal? It’s falling apart.
Senator Joni Ernst will also speak tonight and no doubt will remind Hillary Clinton of her stupid “it’s not enough to be a woman” comment as she campaigned against Joni Ernst.
Tonight, Sheriff Clarke will speak about dead police officers and the phony #BlackLivesMatter movement that kills black people and black police even as it’s racist aims actually target white people.
Senator Jeff Sessions will speak tonight. Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. will speak tonight as will Willie Robertson and Scott Baio. Lone Survivor Marcus Luttrell, Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Darryl Glenn will speak tonight. Melania Trump will speak tonight.
Tonight, Rudy Giuliani will speak and not only remind America of how he lowered crime rates but also of what Muslim terrorists did on 9/11. Representatives Sean Duffy and McCaul will speak tonight. Aaron Carson Vaughn’s mother will speak about her now dead SEAL son’s death after his work was publicly exposed as well as about the other members of SEAL Team VI that killed Osama bin Laden. Marines Mark Geist and John Teigen will also speak about Benghazi. The family of dead Border Patrol agent Brian Terry will remind the nation of Fast and Furious. Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, will speak about who is responsible for the death of her son in Benghazi.
Mary Ann Mendoza, the mother of Police Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, will speak about her dead son killed by a drunk illegal immigrant who was never deported. Sabine Durden, the mother of dead son Dominic, who was killed by “a truck driven by an unlicensed, uninsured, and unregistered driver who was in the United States illegally.” Jamiel Shaw will speak tonight. His son died in 2008, murdered by an illegal alien gang member. Jamiel Andre Shaw, III will be remembered at the convention tonight.
It’s going to be a night of brutal truths.
