Official Birth Certificate: @RealDonaldTrump Is GOP Nominee – New Born #RNCInCle Make America Work Again

Update: 7:13 p.m. EDT – Donald J. Trump nominated by the Republican National Convention as presidential candidate. It’s official.


Today’s convention theme is the old “JOBS, JOBS, JOBS” made fresh into Make America Work Again! It’s not only about Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, however. Make America Work Again has a double meaning. Meaning #1: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs; Meaning #2: ‘our people, government and institutions should function, not fall apart as Barack Obama and the Bushes have done with the country leading to a loss of trust and belief in our values’. Kinda smart, huh?

The main event tonight? It becomes official. Late this afternoon Donald J. Trump will officially be nominated as the Republican candidate for President of the United States. The vote is around 5:30 EDT.

Smarties like us knew from the very beginning that Trump would be the nominee. Almost from the beginning Trump was unstoppable. The only alternative was low energy loser Jeb Bush. The nomination process was fixed to make Jeb! the nominee. But Trump trumped. All the schemes of Republican mice and men designed to fix the election for Jeb! worked to Trump’s benefit. Today the old Republican Party dies.

From today forward the new Republican Party of courageous Donald J. Trump is born:

Donald J. Trump is running a real HOPE AND CHANGE campaign with unceasing attacks on the political establishment of the country which includes both parties, Big Media, lobbyists, special interests, unions, the Chamber of Commerce, the regulatory bureaucratic state, and all those who encourage or feed upon this gargantuan power structure – which is what makes Trump so difficult to destroy.

The new Republican Party will not go back to ignoring Republican voters. The new Republican Party will not bow to those that want endless wars without victory and a low wage society that punishes hard workers and those that save and lead honorable lives.

Make America Safe Again, Make America Work Again, Make America Great Again! Donald J. Trump is the official GOP candidate.

* * * * * *

The schedule and speakers for today? At around 5:30 p.m. EDT there will be a roll call of states which will officially nominate Donald J. Trump as the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States. This nomination is the main purpose of the convention. On Thursday Donald J. Trump will accept the nomination and the process will be complete.

In the evening session we will have speeches. First speech by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson.

Eric Trump and Tiffany Trump will speak. Then Dana White, President of Ultimate Fighting Championship; Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; Governor Scott Walker; Sharon Day, Co-Chair of the Republican National Committee; Leslie Rutledge, Arkansas Attorney General; Michael B, Mukasey, Former U.S. Attorney General; Andy Wist, Standard Waterproofing Company; Ron Johnson, Wisconsin senator; Chris Cox, Executive Director of NRA Institute for Legislative Action; Natalie Gulbis, LPGA.

Then we will be bored and disgusted by Lyin’ Paul Ryan, open borders advocate, Trump Hater, pretty blue eyes, smoking hot body, Eddie Munster hair, wall around his house, worried about his primary opponent Paul Nehlen in this August’s primary, TPP advocate, collaborator with Barack Obama; ‘give Obama all the money he wants for his anti-America schemes’, Mitt Romney co-loser, Jeb Bush amnesty pal, wannabee president in the future, scumbag with is own anti-worker agenda, etc.

After Lyin’ Paul Ryan engages in passive-aggressive undermining of Donald J. Trump, the next speaker will undermine his plots with a strong endorsement of Trump. That next speech will be by Kevin McCarthy, U.S. House Majority Leader and U.S Representative from California; then we expect a much better speech than the one he delivered at the Romney convention, Governor Chris Christie, Governor of New Jersey; then Kerry Woolard, General Manager of Trump Winery; then Donald Trump, Jr.; Shelley Moore Capito, West Virginia Senator; Dr. Ben Carson; Kimberlin Brown will speak at the end.

That long session should Make America Work Again which leads to Make America Great Again!

    The haggard, falling apart, loser Republican Party is dead. The new Republican Party is born and today, with Trump’s nomination, we get the birth certificate:

    The Bush family is “effectively in self-imposed exile,” Jonathan Martin of Politico said on CNN’s midday broadcast, noting that it has been decades since Republicans were Bush-less at their national convention. He said this like it’s a bad thing that Republicans have finally rid themselves of the dynastic dominance of Bushism. It’s as if the GOP presidential nomination is a family heirloom the Bushes pass along from one generation to the next, like grandma’s antique silver service. If they don’t get their way, they take their ball and go home. Not very “party unity” of them.

    “That’s their choice,” Ivanka Trump told ABC News. “If they don’t want to be part of the narrative, if they don’t want to be part of the future — that this really is about a forward-looking moment.”

    They don’t want to be part of the future. They are the past.

    Barack Obama and his Moose will say this is entirely NOT explainable because the motive is not clear:

    Girl fighting for life after mum and three daughters knifed in French holiday resort for being ‘scantily dressed’

    An eight-year-old girl is fighting for her life after a mum and her three daughters were reportedly stabbed in a French holiday resort for being ‘scantily dressed’.

    The French family are said to have been targeted while holidaying in Garda-Colombe in the Hautes-Alpes near Montpellier in southern France.

    The 46-year-old woman and the girls – aged eight, 12 and 14 – were all attacked before the knifeman fled the scene – according to police.

    The eight-year-old was airlifted to hospital in nearby Grenoble with a punctured lung and is in a critical condition.

    The 37-year-old man has been identified by French media as Mohamed Boufarkouch, who was born in Morocco.

    He is reportedly unknown to the police and gendarmerie.

    He was arrested following the incident at around 10am local time (9am UK time) this morning and is still in custody on suspicion of attempted homicide, reports Le Dauphine.

    Police say the motive for the attack remains ‘vague’ but local media reports state the attacker had made references to the females being ‘too lightly dressed’.

    Eye-witnesses said the mum and her daughters had been having breakfast when they were attacked.

    Local prosecutor Raphael Balland told the AFP news agency: “The motive of the attack is very blurred.”

    Can anyone figure out what the motive is??? Why would Mohamed attack women because they are not covered up like a tea cozy?

    Can anyone figure out this “very blurred” motive? What could it be??? What could it be????

    DrudgeReport headline brings news that Roger Ailes, head of Fox News has resigned as of July 22. Sexual harassment allegations did him in. Megyn Kelly did him in after Gretchen Carlson. Ailes stood by his new star Kelly when Ailes went to war against Trump.

    KCK police captain Robert David Melton killed in shooting

    KANSAS CITY, Kan. —Kansas City, Kansas, police Captain Robert David Melton was killed in a shooting Tuesday afternoon.

    Melton, who goes by Dave, was shot just before 2 p.m. at 22nd Street and Haskell Avenue.

    Police said an officer responded to a call about an armed disturbance at Second Street and Edgerton Drive about 1:30 p.m. The caller reported that someone in a vehicle was firing shots in the area.

    Investigators said officers reached the scene about five minutes later and said several people jumped out of the vehicle. One of those people was taken into custody right away.

    Police said that Melton, who was at the scene, tried to contact another fleeing suspect, shots were fired and Melton was hit. Melton was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead just before 3 p.m.

    Police said two people are in custody. They said they are searching for one or two additional people.

    Police are still mourning the loss of police Detective Brad Lancaster, who was shot and killed on May 9 while checking out a report of a suspicious person near the Hollywood Casino. The man arrested in that shooting has been charged with capital murder.

    Ailes fights back against his “star” Megyn Kelly:

    Fox initially confirmed Drudge’s report to The Daily Beast, and subsequently walked back that confirmation. Additionally, Drudge replaced a headline touting the buyout with a new one on “Fox News Drama,” including a statement from the network: “Roger Ailes has never sexually harassed Megyn Kelly. In fact, he has spent much of the last decade promoting and helping her to achieve the stardom she earned, for which she has repeatedly and publicly thanked him.

    #NeverTrump knocked out:

    Ex-Sen. Coburn: I won’t challenge Trump, I’ll vote for him

    CLEVELAND — Former Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla.), long regarded as one of the most principled conservatives in Congress, on Tuesday quashed rumors that he might challenge Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination.

    While Coburn, who was the target of a draft campaign by disgruntled conservative activists, says he has “concerns” about Trump, he sees him as a better choice than Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee.

    That isn’t going to happen, so it’s all speculation,” Coburn told The Hill when asked about a report Tuesday morning that he would accept a successful petition to nominate him instead of Trump.

    “It’s not anything to speculate on,” he added.

    Conservative activists led by Erick Erickson, an influential writer and radio talk show host, courted Coburn as an alternative to Trump and Clinton.

    Rumors have swirled on the convention floor about the emergence of a last-minute conservative challenger to swipe the nomination from Trump. Conservatives led by Sen. Mike Lee (Utah) made an unsuccessful bid Monday to change the rules binding delegates to vote for Trump.

    Quin Hillyer, a columnist affiliated with the Never Trump effort who collaborated with Erickson, reported on his blog that Coburn would accept a successful effort to put his name in consideration for the nomination. The item was picked up by, Erickson’s website.

    But Coburn on Tuesday said he will vote for Trump as a better option than Clinton, even though he has some misgivings about the billionaire businessman, whose policy views often depart from conservative orthodoxy.

    “I have concerns for the country for both nominees. Given the choice, I’ll vote for Trump,” Coburn said.

    After speaking with The Hill, Coburn told Hillyer on Tuesday that he had considered running as an alternative to Trump before party leaders defeated the effort to unbind the delegates.

    “I let it be known that I was willing to serve if asked by the delegates. But, after the voice vote was shot down — which was done in error — there was no opportunity to challenge the presumptive nominee,” he said.

    One of Coburn’s top missions in Congress was to rein in the mounting costs of Medicare, Medicaid and other mandatory spending programs.

    Trump alarmed conservatives earlier this year by declaring “everybody’s got to be covered” with health insurance and that “the government’s going to pay for it.”

    Since then, however, Trump put out a plan to repeal ObamaCare, allow the sale of health insurance across state lines and allow people to deduct health insurance premium payments from their taxes.

    Coburn, who retired from the Senate in 2014 and who has battled prostate cancer, declined to say why he has steadily resisted efforts to draft him as an alternative to Trump and Clinton.

    Decision on Clinton email deposition expected soon

    A federal judge on Monday declined to order the deposition of Hillary Clinton over whether she deliberately thwarted federal record-keeping laws — but did not rule out the possibility that the former secretary of State may yet be forced to testify.

    U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan said he would issue a ruling “as soon as I can,” prolonging the uncertainty in a protracted legal battle over Clinton’s use of a private email server while in office.

    The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which has brought a bevy of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the State Department, argued before Sullivan that Clinton needs to be deposed to answer its questions about how and why the unauthorized system was created and maintained.

    The group has requested three hours of testimony.

    Lawyers representing both the former secretary of State and the State Department pushed back on the request, insisting that there is no legal basis to force Clinton to testify in the case — and that further, there is no new information to be gained that is not already a matter of public record.

    Over two and a half hours of oral arguments, Sullivan repeatedly cautioned counsel for both sides not to “read into” the tenor of his questions. At one point, he probed both on a scenario in which he might not order Clinton to testify under oath, but instead allow Judicial Watch to provide a list of written questions for Clinton to answer.

    But how he will ultimately rule remains a matter of speculation.

    Lawyers for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee have begun working to set the stage to delay a forced testimony in the event Sullivan rules against them. A pair of court filings lodged last week were the first time Clinton’s team of personal lawyers have intervened in the matter, which has been going on for nearly three years.

    The specter of deposition hangs over Clinton just days before she is expected to be formally named the Democratic Party’s nominee for president. Although the Department of Justice recently announced that it would not press charges against Clinton or any of her aides for using the bespoke email system, the furor surrounding her email habits has continued apace.

    At issue is whether Clinton deliberately tried to circumvent public records laws through her use of the server. Longtime Clinton lawyer David Kendall said Monday there is “not a scintilla of evidence” supporting such claims.

    Nervous! Scott Walker Sends Fundraising Letter for Paul Ryan: Nehlen ‘Paul’s Toughest Fight Yet’

    After losing the Republican presidential primary, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has decided to back House Speaker Paul Ryan in his contentious primary battle against Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen.

    In a fundraising letter to Wisconsin voters, Walker warns that the Speaker’s campaign against his pro-America primary challenger could be Ryan’s “toughest fight yet.”

    “Paul Ryan’s re-election is important to every Wisconsin conservative,” Walker writes in the fundraising letter. “His leadership is too important to Wisconsin and our country to risk losing him… To help our friend, please write your [contribution]… and let’s win what could be Paul’s toughest fight yet.”

    Three of Fox News’ biggest stars — Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren — have clauses in their contracts that would allow them to depart if Mr Ailes were to leave the network, the two people briefed on the dispute said.

    This means a core team of on-air talent could follow Mr Ailes out of the door.

    Mr O’Reilly said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter last year that he had “no idea how the network would shake out if he [Roger Ailes] wasn’t here.”

    Mr Ailes has told associates he is furious at his treatment by the Murdochs.

    Lyin’ Paul Ryan then yabbers about how the American people want change. The country wants change but Lyin’ Paul Ryan ain’t it.

    Lyin’ Paul Ryan tries to sell the convention on his “poverty program”. Lyin’ Paul Ryan’s “programs” lost in 2012. Time for Lyin’ Paul Ryan to take a hike.

    His speech thus far is a bore. Lyin’ Paul Ryan mentioned Donald Trump once then moved on to his proposal nonsense.

    One of the few times Reuters has anything nice to write about Trump:

    ‘We’re not electing a husband:’ Tough-talking Trump wins over some skeptical women

    Donald Trump’s tough talk on law and order in a time of growing national insecurity appears to be winning over some of his fiercest skeptics – women initially put off by his swaggering tone, his clashes with female critics and past affairs.

    But so far those are mostly conservative women. As Trump hones his message, the challenge is to make it also resonate among independent or undecided female voters who are crucial to his hopes of winning the U.S. presidential election in November.

    Turmoil on the streets both abroad and at home could give Trump a new opportunity to do just that.

    On Monday, Trump tried to seize it with an evening program at the Republican National Convention with several women speakers, including his wife Melania, focused on security. She told the convention that her husband would offer the country new leadership and keep it “safe and secure.”

    Americans have been rattled by recent attacks in France and Florida, the murder of police officers in Texas and Louisiana, and widespread protests over the killings of unarmed black men, polls show.

    We’re not electing a husband, we’re not electing a preacher, we’re electing a leader,” said Kay White, a Republican delegate to the nominating convention from Tennessee who originally supported U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas in the early nominating contests, or primaries.

    For White, it’s a one-issue election. “Security,” she said. “Nothing else matters.”

    A year ago, Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America, a conservative advocacy group, was a blistering critic of the thrice-married Trump because of comments he made about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly that many felt were sexist.

    But Nance now supports Trump and says the candidate can fashion an effective message for women centered on national security, she told Reuters on the sidelines of the convention. “Every day we wake up and get our kids ready for school and the television is on and there is another attack,” she said.

    “SECURITY MOMS” [snip]

    Trump isn’t the first candidate whose tough talk on security has won over women voters. George W. Bush used the same message in his re-election campaign in 2004, in the midst of his “war on terror,” to appeal to so-called security moms who were concerned about terrorism.

    Bush garnered 48 percent of the vote of American women in that election. By comparison, Republican candidate Mitt Romney drew 44 percent in 2012, a full 10 points behind President Barack Obama. [snip]

    Jen Lawless, director of the Women and Politics Institute at American University, said she doubted Trump could rehabilitate his image with most women voters, saying his conflict with Kelly, in particular, had lasting damage.

    “I think that ship has sailed,” Lawless said.

    Trump’s problems with women were dramatized on Monday when Women for Trump, a voter-support group, held a sparsely attended event in Cleveland.

    The moderator, Jennifer Hulsey, appeared to speak for a lot of women who have found a way to support Trump. “He’s not perfect, but neither am I,” Hulsey said.

    Some of the women delegates interviewed by Reuters at the convention on Monday were scornful of the criticism of Trump’s attitude toward women, pointing to his daughter Ivanka, who is a top executive in the Trump Organization.

    Ivanka and his other daughter Tiffany are due to speak at the convention this week.

    “He was not my first choice or even my second choice,” said Carol Del Carlo, a Trump supporter. But, “I look at him and I see how he treats his daughters. They’re engaged, they look like a real, true family, they work in their father’s business, they’re advisors.”

    Christie rolls in.

    Christie says for 14 years Donald Trump has been his friend. Christie says this election is not just about Trump. It’s also about… Hillary. Christie then declares he is a former federal prosecutor and will hold Hillary accountable. The crowd begins to chant “Lock her up.”

    Christie says he will present the case, on the facts, against Hillary Rodham Clinton and that the convention as a jury of her peers will hear the case. Christie starts with Libya and the mess there. Christie then asks for a verdict, “guilty or not guilty.” “Guilty” roars the crowd.

    On to Nigeria and Boko Haram’s kidnapping young girls and young women. Crowd “guilty”. On China and the stimulus bill “guilty”. Syria. Assad a “reformer” as Hillary termed? “Guilty.”

    The guilty/not guilty conceit is a smart device for Christie as a way to attack Hillary Clinton. He proceeds to the Iran Nuclear Deal, Israel security. “Guilty” is the response.

    This Christie speech is much better for the nominee than the Christie speech of 2012. Christie goes on to the “reset” button and says it should be a “delete” button. “Strengthen Russia?” Failed strategist and negotiator of bad contracts? “Guilty.”

    Cuba embargo ended? “Guilty” Cop killer Joanne Chesimard? “Guilty” Coddler of dictators? “Guilty”

    Email server? “Guilty” Putting herself ahead of America? “Guilty” Christie sums up the case against Hillary Clinton. Says “the facts disqualify her.” Then tell the audience at home they are the final judges. Praises Trump.

    Much better speech by Christie than 2012. Time for a sandwich.

    I expected better from Christie..

    Tiffany is very confident and poised.

  • admin

    Tiffany Trump speaks. The little known Trump. Praises her dad. “He gives his all.” “Desire for excellence.” “Draws out talent and drive in people.” A supportive dad. “Never let fear of failure get in the way.” “Natural charm, no facade.”

    Tiffany Trump did very well. Well spoken. Good character reference.

  • gonzotx

    Yes it was better than 2012 when Christie made it all about him it was embarressing, but his delivery seemed not as animated as I expected.

    Rudy so far is my top down favorite.

  • gonzotx


    Christie just said he wrote his speech last night 100% finished last night at 2 am…

    Is no one on top of these speeches?

    Way too loose.

    Donald Trump, Jr. Father of 5(!) “Son of a great man.”

    “Most important election of our lifetime.” “Our country has ignored its problems.” “We need to elect a man with a track record of accomplishing the impossible.” “He gets it done.” The impossible gets him “into action”. “For my father ‘impossible’ is just the starting point.” “He is always fully committed.”

    “He can fix the country.” “He spent his career hanging out with the little guys.” “He sees the potential in people.” “We learned from people with doctorates in common sense.” Trump Jr. cites examples of those he learned from.

    Trump Jr. then attacks the “opposition” party. Cites Bernie Sanders on how illegal immigration drives down wages.

    Trump Jr. says he grew up with many advantages he wants all Americans to have those advantages. Cites school choice. “The other party have us a regulatory state on steroids”. Trump Jr. says the regulations only help big business and hurts new business. Denounces the “new aristocrats.”

    Talks about Mark Geist as a friend who served in Benghazi. “Ask Mark who’s fit to lead?” “If Hillary Clinton were elected she would be the first president who could not pass a basic background check.”

    Talks about the thousands in Chicago who have died since Obama has been in office. Attacks Hillary on energy costs and energy independence “her buddies in the middle east.”

    “Put all Americans first!” (shades of Bill Clinton’s slogan). Attacks ObamaCare. Attacks “PC culture.” “Not beholden to special interests.” Appoint judges who believe in “limited government.” The crowd now begins to shout “Trump” between sentences.

    “My mentor, my best friend, my father, Donald Trump.” “Greater than ever before.”

    Trump Jr. has a political career ahead of him. Excellent speech, very well delivered. Astounding.

    DrudgeReport headline brings news that Roger Ailes, head of Fox News has resigned as of July 22. Sexual harassment allegations did him in. Megyn Kelly did him in after Gretchen Carlson.

    What did Megyn Kelly do….? Did she back Gretchen, or also claim sexual harassment…?

  • Tony Stark

    She claimed an uncomfortable hug from him in 2006.

    Thx, Tony!

    I guess the fix for Jeb didn’t work out so well.

    Final delegate count…Jeb got one more than Rand Paul. No wonder they stayed home!

    * Dr. Ben Carson 7

    Trump v. Megyn Kelly turned Fox News against Trump. Now Megyn Kelly is hated:

    Exclusive — Fox News Stars Stand With Roger Ailes Against Megyn Kelly, More Than 50 Fox Contributors, All Primetime, Willing To Walk

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — All of Fox News’ primetime lineup is willing to walk out of the network with chief executive and chairman Roger Ailes if he is pushed out by Rupert Murdoch and his family, Breitbart News has confirmed.

    Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren, Shepard Smith, Bret Baier, Eric Bolling, Neil Cavuto, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Laura Ingraham, Geraldo Rivera, Juan Williams, Jeanine Pirro, Bo Dietl, Monica Crowley, all of the Fox and Friends hosts, and at least 50 Fox News contributors are willing to depart the network if Ailes is ousted, and leave with him to form a new network, one of the network’s anchors told Breitbart News late Tuesday.

    All of them stand against Megyn Kelly, and all of them stand with Roger Ailes.

    This development, which has been confirmed to Breitbart News by multiple network sources, effectively boxes in those who want to remove Ailes. Either they can throw all in behind Megyn Kelly—in which case they would have to forfeit most of the rest of the network—or they can stand with the hardworking anchors and news personalities at Fox News.

    If Fox wants to become the ‘all about Megyn Network,’ that’s fine,” one top Fox News host said. “We stand with Roger. And real anger has emerged that the so-called Megyn incident happened 10 years ago. The consensus among the hosts and contributors is: ‘Why didn’t she say anything then? Really, the same woman that posed half naked in GQ? The same woman on Howard Stern saying what?’”

    A second top Fox News Channel host told Breitbart News: “If Megyn Kelly wants to leave, we are fine with that. Good riddance.”

    The fact that nearly the entire network is willing to walk out over this, and support Ailes over Kelly is significant in that they have banded together to show their strength. It will harder than ever now for the Murdochs to side with Kelly over Ailes, especially with the lack of any evidence of her allegations–and the fact that Kelly waited 10 years to say anything about this evidence-less supposed incident.

    Most people at the Fox News Channel are extraordinarily offended that Kelly made Tuesday—the day Donald J. Trump because the official Republican nominee—all about herself. Multiple sources can’t believe she did this today of all days.

    Other network sources say that this all about Megyn Kelly’s plans to get a Hillary Clinton interview, but she has already lost out on that front as both Baier and O’Reilly have gotten such interviews ahead of her–and both of theirs were better than she could ever do. [snip]

    No, it’s Megyn Kelly, who has yet again found a way to worm her way to the top of the news cycle ahead of the potential next President of the United States of America.

    Kelly has for a year battled with Trump, throughout the Republican primaries and since then. She came at him with roundly criticized gotcha questions in the first GOP presidential debate here last August. She touted reports falsely accusing him of raping his ex-wife, and then didn’t back down from them. She regularly sparred with Trump over the ensuing next several months, and used her show to promote the so-called “Never Trump” collective—something that as shown here at the GOP convention as Trump easily wrapped up the nomination never amounted to an actual “movement.”

    Trump skipped a debate in Iowa over Fox News’ decision to keep her on as an anchor. And she pushed the now widely discredited narrative that Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s now former campaign manager, somehow assaulted Michelle Fields. Police even wasted taxpayer resources to investigate the matter.

    So, sure enough, as Trump wins the nomination, Kelly finds a way to commandeer the news cycle to put herself not just in the middle of the story—but to make all the news about her. Over the past few weeks, unsubstantiated allegations have emerged from Gretchen Carlson—a now former Fox News anchor—that Roger Ailes, the network’s chief executive and chairman, allegedly made sexual advances against her.

    The news cycle on that matter seemed to fizzle away heading into the GOP convention here, though, as Carlson provided no evidence to back up her thus far unsubstantiated allegations while evidence of anti-Fox News and political biases from her attorney did surface. Carlson’s attorney, as Breitbart News uncovered, made tens of thousands of dollars in political donations to progressive Democrats with a penchant for publicly criticizing Fox News and Ailes. Meanwhile, a bevy of current and former Fox News anchors and contributors of their own volition began publicly speaking out in defense of Ailes ranging from Greta Van Susteren to Maria Bartiromo to Kimberly Guilfoyle and many more.

    As Ailes seemed to be out of the woods, and the story seemed to be dying down, one question lingered as 15,000 mainstream media reporters—all of whom despise the Fox News Channel and Ailes—descended on Cleveland: Why hadn’t Megyn Kelly said anything?

    Then, all of a sudden, Kelly dropped the bomb.

    In comments to the outside firm investigating the matter, according to New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman—an anti-Ailes agitator in the mainstream media—Kelly alleged that Ailes sexually harassed her. She and her attorneys have, sources say, manipulated her way in a manner that rival Claire Underwood of the hit Netflix drama House of Cards. “Even her haircut looks like Robin Wright [the actress who plays the ruthless First Lady in the series],” said one source in Cleveland. “She’s a woman who not just will do anything for power, but anything to make it all about her.”

    Megyn Kelly has a lot of skeletons in her closet that would be dragged out in a lawsuit. Ask Brit Hume about the alleged affair he had with Kelly.

  • alcina

    Ask Brit Hume about the alleged affair he had with Kelly.

    totally gross visual. thanks, admin.

  • gonzotx

    Ailes made Kelly, supported her against Trump in reality and this is how she pays him back.

    Liberal media is probably going to make her an offer she won’t be able to reject.Probably already has.

    She appears ready to bring the house of Fox down.

    I will never forget when Trump told Bush if he got any closer to the edge od the stage he would fall off.
    This because as your losing was assessed and vote counts, he lost his center place in debates and clearly was on the end

    That line was one of the fatal zingers.

  • alcina

    Mika and Joe this morning still wall to wall plagiarism talk. They are now throwing Donald Trump Jr.’s speech into the mix.

    Aahhh, the sweet smell of desperation.

  • wbboei

    If events run relatively smoothly till November the advantage will be Hillary’s. If things blow up, it will be advantage Trump, or at least disadvantage Hillary. Edward Lucas writes that “the West is exhausted”. “The onslaught of bad news in recent weeks is giving us decision fatigue. We have to cope with Brexit, the latest terrorist attack in France, the failed coup in Turkey and racial violence in America. Looming on the horizon is a banking meltdown in Italy and a perilous confrontation in the South China Sea—plus the continuing migration crisis and the prospect of a Trump presidency.” This restates the case precisely.
    The “west is exhausted” because it has wasted an incredible amount energy on politically correct trivia: climate change, transgender bathrooms, a bewildering labyrinth of victim categories, the endless guilt of being whipsawed over feeling sorry for cops or sorry for those they shoot, gaslighted into a near-breakdown by evil clowns. At the same time it is now besieged by long-term issues: Lucas’ “Brexit, the latest terrorist attack in France, the failed coup in Turkey and racial violence in America”, in other words by the high frequency, low frequency campaign signals.
    What makes the exhaustion worse is the self-jamming phenomenon. In nature animals have evolved filters to preventive destructive feedback.
    “Echolocating animals can jam themselves in a number of ways. Bats, for example, produce some of the loudest sounds in nature, and then they immediately listen for echoes that are hundreds of times fainter than the sounds they emit. To avoid deafening themselves, whenever a bat makes an echolocation emission, a small muscle in the bat’s middle ear (the stapedius muscle) clamps down on small bones called ossicles, which normally amplify sounds between the ear drum and the cochlea. This dampens the intensity of the sounds that the bat hears during this time, preserving hearing sensitivity to target echoes.”
    The problem is that the great mass of the Leftist public has no defense against their own deceptive signalling. They actually take their own political line seriously. They worry about problems that may not really exist, like the transgender bathroom crisis, the War on Women and Global Warming. They deny the problems that really do exist. They go to sleep thinking Iran is fixed, the refugee problem is solved, delight in the idea that the administration has made all these sophisticated deals with Assad and the Ayatollahs and Putin.
    Then they wake up to the realization that what they thought fixed isn’t and are mentally defenseless against the terror attacks they unexpectedly experience. And so everyone gets exhausted. Not a few observers have pointed out that the enemies of the West are largely sitting back and watching it blow a fuse.
    Trump vs Hillary are signals converging from opposite ends of the spectrum until they meet explosively in the middle of the range. If you have trouble understanding what it means, you can spell it out thus: what nobody ever believed was politically possible is finally here. As things begin to ramp up and the Democratic convention opens it will be interesting to see whether the political/media complex can get all the way to November without blowing up.

    The Left has become so desperate now to stop Trump that they are now talking about staging a military coup against him should he become POTUS.

    I do think Manafort could have handled this differeently. Used a velvet touch and swatted them without their knowing.

  • jbstonesfan

    It’s a real soap opera at Fox News. I don’t particularly care for any of them, but Ailes was quick to come to Kelly’s defense when she was under attack by Trump. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. From what I read, his legal team wants a large $$$ and some type of emeritus position at Fox.

    My fear JB is that it will be non stop liberal views 24\7…all outlets if he leaves.
    Greta, despite her obvious tilt toward hillary has always been very fair, far more than anyone anywhere.
    The Judge, who tilts trump has generally been right there. Kind of no non sense former prosecuter.
    There are others that are good, but then theirs Reily…love Walters World segment, but a terrible egotistical melba toast really. Acts tough but really isn’t. He had his chance with obama and blew it.
    Hannity. I believe he believes everything he says. Gives interviwees time, but even with my hillary dislike, he’s over the top.

    I really don’t watch much news, cant stand the slants, but this would be bad for America.
