…Tim Kaine has enjoyed support from the National Muslim Democratic Council, the communist-aligned Alliance for Retired Americans, and one of the most vile and influential organizations you never heard of: Council for a Livable World. In the 2012 election, Tim Kaine was supported by the Asian American Action Fund. The “socialist infiltrated, anti-Israel ‘two state solution’ JStreet PAC endorsed Tim Kaine in 2012, 2014 and 2016.…

…As he appeared on stage, Cruz basked in a minute-long standing ovation. Cruz finished second to Trump in the crowded Republican primary campaign and congratulated the GOP nominee on his victory.

But as close as Cruz came to saying he wanted Trump to win the White House came when he said: "I want to see the principles that our party believes in prevail in November."

Cruz didn't tell the convention crowd that he plans to vote for Trump. Nor did he ask his supporters, hundreds of whom encouraged him to run for president in four years at an event on Wednesday afternoon, to vote for the newly minted Republican nominee.…

Haven't heard the speech myself yet. I was a Cruz supporter from the moment he announced, but after he seemed to keep shooting himself in the foot, drifting off-message, and not being dynamic enough. Now this? Trump deserved to win.

…All of these speeches by potential first ladies are pretty cookie cutter in their message – working hard to get ahead and raising a beautiful family.

She said that after the first round, in which the much stronger Clinton had her pinned down for a period of time, she was relieved when she thought it was over and was hoping he would leave the room.

Instead, she says Clinton turned to her and told her words to the effect of “I am going to do it again.”…

Oklahoma -
For the past two months, Gov Fallin's name has appeared on the VP watch list. She has met Trump four times and while they've talked issues such as Obamacare, Syrian refugees, and the economy and energy, there have been no specific conversations about joining the ticket.

Fallin said while their styles of communication are drastically different, “Well, we do have different personalities, but I think we share a common passion. And that is the love of America and wanting to see America do well, wanting to make sure that we are safe and secure.”

Even if she is not on the ticket, the Governor will have a vital role at the convention. She's the national co-chair for the party's platform, and the Republican Governor's Association. And she could be tapped to speak again at the convention.…

She's not 100% in my book, but she's pretty good. Would hate to have to replace her as Governor.

…"Amid an ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of email and hours before the public release of the Benghazi report, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton…" Neither Lynch nor Bill Clinton are dummies. They both know that such a private meeting creates the appearance of impropriety regardless of what was discussed. Bill Clinton’s wife is being investigated by the FBI — why do you think he dropped in for a chat with Lynch? Of course they didn’t discuss the case. They didn’t need to.…

The death by barbell of disgraced UN official John Ashe could become a bigger obsession for conspiracy theorists than Vince Foster’s 1993 suicide.

Ashe — who was facing trial for tax fraud — died Wednesday afternoon in his house in Westchester County. The UN said he’d had a heart attack. But the local Dobbs Ferry police said Thursday that his throat had been crushed, presumably by a barbell he dropped while pumping iron.

Ashe was due in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who is charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips.… “During the trial, the prosecutors would have linked Ashe to the Clinton bagman Ng. It would have been very embarrassing. His death was conveniently timed.”…

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A federal judge on Thursday scrapped the city of Cleveland's plans for a heightened-security zone that would have encompassed most of downtown during the Republican National Convention, saying that the restrictions are burdensome to people who want to express their free-speech rights.

U.S. District Judge James Gwin's ruling comes 25 days before Republican delegates and leaders will descend upon Cleveland and forces the city to redraw the boundaries to the so-called "event zone," which would have encompassed a 3.5-square-mile area at the heart of the city.…
