If you liked Trump, you loved this.
If you didn’t, you thought it was OK.
If you are me, you will vote against Clinton.
Here is your annotated speech…
Republicans embrace absurd “equality” rhetoric…
‘Focus on making quality childcare affordable’Ivanka Trump: “As president, my father will change the labor laws … and he will focus on making quality childcare affordable and accessible for all.”
‘Make it easier to pay for childcare’Hillary Clinton: “I will do everything I can to make it easier to pay for childcare.”
‘… fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave’Hillary Clinton: “If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman’s card, then deal me in.”
‘American families need relief’Ivanka Trump: “As a mother myself of three young children, I know how hard it is to raise a family and I know that I am far more fortunate than most. American families need relief. Policies that allow women to thrive should not be novelties, they should be the norm.”
‘Women are paid equally for the work’Ivanka Trump: “At my father’s company, there are more female than male executives. Women are paid equally for the work that we do and when a woman becomes a mother, she is supported, not shut out.”
‘In 2014, women made 83 cents for every dollar earned by a man’Ivanka Trump: “In 2014, women made 83 cents for every dollar earned by a man. Single women without children earned 94 cents for every dollar earned by a man, whereas married mothers made only 77 cents. As researchers have noted, gender is no longer creating the greatest wage discrepancy in this country, motherhood is.”
‘We still make it hard on women to go into the work force’Hillary Clinton: “We don’t have enough support for maternal leave and the kinds of things that some of the European countries do. So we still make it hard on women to go into the work force and feel that they can be good at work but then doing the most important job, which is raising your children in a responsible and positive way.”
Pot vs. Kettle….
Birds of a feather…
I think he loses, bigly… but it did not have to happen this way…
Have we learned anything?
The media went hard at Trump over the fact that he points out America feels like it is becoming lawless, mostly because of them…
First it was street crime…
Also, the media loves to pretend illegal immigration doesn’t bring crime…
You will notice, no one said they are more criminal, the fact is they do commit crimes beyond the crime of illegal entry in indisputable. A criminal element exploits our weak borders.
Dishonesty reigns supreme…
No one ever disputed this. They make up 70% of the population and through their commission of crimes they kill cops, this is always going to be an issue.
The recent spate of #BlackLivesMatter’s motivated police shootings has people concerned.
Kudos to the city of Cleveland… No real issues…
No open-carry shoot out.
No stories about chaos and, of course, how chaotic it was in the street.
What’s it like to hole up in a special “safe space” during the RNC? Very, very sad, it turns out, unless you really like coloring books.
Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) grabbed headlines, and no small degree of ridicule, when it was revealed the school was maintaining a special “safe space” during the RNC in order to assist those psychologically or physically traumatized by the prospect of Republicans being in Cleveland and giving speeches.
Shut up and play basketball…
He actually talked about how Trump screwed him…
Tom Barrack is now telling us about the time he sold Trump the Plaza Hotel. “He played me like a Steinway piano,” Barrack said. Trump was a steely-eyed negotiator, a tiger in the jungle.
Who is he kidding? The Plaza Hotel was a disastrous deal—for Trump. Trump went with his gut and overpaid enormously. He bought it for $407 million—far more than it was worth at the time—spent over $50 million in renovations, and then, when he was going through bankruptcy proceedings, was forced to sell it in a deal that valued the hotel at $325 million. Barrack and his boss took Trump to the cleaners.
What’s more, Barrack was highlighting the absolute worst part of this deal: that Trump was so eager to get the hotel that he agreed to forego normal due diligence and instead allowed Barrack to just give him a list of stuff that needed fixing. It was massive negligence on Trump’s part. If Harvard has a list of the worst, laziest deals ever made, this one would make the top ten list.Yet this is the example they’re touting to show what a great businessman Trump is? That takes real balls. It’s a testament to the fact that the Trump campaign figures it can just say anything. The Trump hagiography is once again beamed out to millions of people and nobody will ever hold them to account.
Why tell a story like this?
“I have nothing negative to say about Hillary,” he said. “I only have amazing things to say about Donald.”
He did, however, open the speech by expressing his nerves about speaking before Ivanka Trump, saying, “I feel like the anchovy on Ivanka’s Caesar salad.”
First ever Congressional Sex Tape…
Hillary Clinton is on the verge of announcing her vice-presidential pick, with Democrats familiar with her search believing she will settle on a Spanish-speaking ally from a battleground state: Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia.
Mrs. Clinton is likely to announce her selection Friday in the form of a text message to supporters. On Saturday, she is set to campaign in Florida, a potential stage for a joint appearance with her newly minted running mate.
Voters tend to focus on the top of the ticket, but Mr. Kaine could offer a political boost for the Clinton campaign. Though unflashy by his own admission, his Spanish fluency might be able to cement her lead among Hispanic voters, a key general-election constituency. He is considered a loyal figure who would mesh well with Mrs. Clinton’s leadership style.
That choice makes sense… Swing state, non-controversial, not a huge liberal.
That’s how it is done.
A Lauderdale County couple was recently indicted on charges they beat and robbed an alleged drug dealer last fall – who then called police to report the crimes.
Dillion Wade Myrick, 23, of Killen and his wife, Kristina Marie Myrick, 23, of Lexington, have been indicted on charges of first-degree burglary, second-degree robbery and second-degree theft of property. The Times-Daily reportsthey indictments were handed down during recent grand jury sessions.
Court records show that the couple is accused of going twice to the Killen home of the victim, the first time on Nov. 14. The man said he was working in his shop on Lauderdale 428 when he heard his dog barking. As he opened the door, the suspects forced their way in and attacked him.
He was knocked to the ground and his wallet taken from his pocket, the court documents say. After $1,000 was taken from the wallet, one suspect stomped on his hand. The second suspect went to the man’s desk and stole a gram of crack and 15 Roxicodone pills.
Roxicodone is oxycodone hydrochloride, a strong opioid pain medication.
Four days later, the court records say, the door to the victim’s house was kicked in and another 25 Roxicodone pills were stolen. The suspects also took a box of 30-40 ammo, two drills, jack stands and a jack.
The victim told police his wife later found pictures of the items posted to the suspects’ Facebook page.
The man did not report the crimes until December, but police ultimately investigating the robbery found a baseball bat at the scene that is believed to be the weapon used on the victim.
The victim was able to identify the suspects despite their wearing masks because he was already acquainted with them and recognized their voices. He had previously told the suspects not to come back to his home and it was shortly after that when the attacks began, he told police.
