Daily Commentary – Wednesday, July 27, 2016 – So What Cable Network Has Done The Best at Covering the Conventions?
- I’m partial to Fox News, but some say CNN or MSNBC are covering them better
LAURA INGRAHAM, SIMPLY AMAZING …
If you missed Laura Ingraham’s speech this past week at the Republican National Convention, watch it below and be amazed. Laura Ingraham is one of my favorite TV and radio hosts, she is definitely ones of my favorite radio addictions.
Seriously folks, if you never got a chance to watch her speech, do so. She makes so much sense and talks about “RESPECT.”
“We should all — even you boys with wounded feelings and bruised egos — we love you, but you must honor your pledge to support Donald Trump now,” she said. As the crowd roared on its feet, she added: “Tonight.”
“To all my friends up there in the press, you all know why in your heart Donald Trump won the Republican nomination. You know it,” Ingraham said. “You know why he won it? Because he dared to call out the phonies, the frauds and the corruption that has gone unexposed and uncovered for too long.”
“Do your job,” Ingraham challenged the media. “Doing your job is a novel concept.”
DONALD TRUMP, “I AM YOUR VOICE” …
Donald Trump spoke to the “Forgotten” people of America last night who no longer have a voice, Trump states, “I am your voice!” It is what the establishment in both parties have still not gotten, the Democrats have not figured out, the liberals are completely blind to and the pundits in the liberal MSM and many on the other side as well still refuse to get … Donald Trump has tapped into the ‘Sleeping Giant” that is the silent majority of Americans who are fed up.

The Manhattan mogul sold himself as the champion of a downtrodden working class — “America’s blue-collar billionaire” as one speaker called him earlier in the evening — promising to restore “law and order” and casting himself as a change agent against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“I am your voice,” he boomed, pointing straight toward the television audience.
“Hillary Clinton’s message is that things will never change. Never ever,” Trump said. “My message is that things have to change and they have to change right now.”
Trump delivered a deeply negative speech that described a darkening America. He spoke of spiking crime, “third-world” airports, growing trade deficits, “chaos in our communities,” and terrorism on the home front. Abroad, he said, the situation was “worse than it has ever been before.”
“This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction, terrorism and weakness,” he said.
Donald J. Trump Humbly & Gratefully Accepts the Republican Nomination for Presidency of the United States (VIDEO)
Last night at the RNC in Cleveland, Ohio Donald J. Trump walked on to the stage to the music from the movie, ‘Air Force One.’ Trump then went on to humble and gratefully accept the Republican nomination for the presidency of the United States to the roar of the crowd.
Donald Trump had big shoes to fill as the Trump Children, Donald Jr., Eric, Tiffany and Ivanka wowed the crowds and did a fantastic job in introducing America to the real Donald Trump, as opposed to the one that the liberal MSM and Democrats want you to see. Donald Trump faced the biggest speech of his life and he did not disappoint. After accepting the presidential nomination Trump said, “We will be a country of generosity and warmth, but we will also be a country of law and order.” When the crowd chanted of Hillary Clinton, lock her up, Trump responded in kind with, “let’s defeat her in November.” Watch the VIDEO below and see a political outsider take on the establishment and the greatest establishment candidate ever, Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump accepts GOP nomination, Part 1
Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States.
Together, we will lead our party back to the White House, and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace. We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order.
Our Convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country.
Americans watching this address tonight have seen the recent images of violence in our streets and the chaos in our communities. Many have witnessed this violence personally, some have even been its victims.
I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning on January 20th 2017, safety will be restored.
The most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. Any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to lead.
It is finally time for a straightforward assessment of the state of our nation.
I will present the facts plainly and honestly. We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore.
So if you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully-crafted lies, and the media myths the Democrats are holding their convention next week.
But here, at our convention, there will be no lies. We will honor the American people with the truth, and nothing else.
Decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this Administration’s rollback of criminal enforcement.
Homicides last year increased by 17% in America’s fifty largest cities. That’s the largest increase in 25 years. In our nation’s capital, killings have risen by 50 percent. They are up nearly 60% in nearby Baltimore.
In the President’s hometown of Chicago, more than 2,000 have been the victims of shootings this year alone. And more than 3,600 have been killed in the Chicago area since he took office.
The number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen by almost 50% compared to this point last year. Nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from our country, are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens.
The number of new illegal immigrant families who have crossed the border so far this year already exceeds the entire total from 2015. They are being released by the tens of thousands into our communities with no regard for the impact on public safety or resources.
One such border-crosser was released and made his way to Nebraska. There, he ended the life of an innocent young girl named Sarah Root. She was 21 years-old, and was killed the day after graduating from college with a 4.0 Grade Point Average. Her killer was then released a second time, and he is now a fugitive from the law.
I’ve met Sarah’s beautiful family. But to this Administration, their amazing daughter was just one more American life that wasn’t worth protecting. One more child to sacrifice on the altar of open borders. What about our economy?
Again, I will tell you the plain facts that have been edited out of your nightly news and your morning newspaper: Nearly Four in 10 African-American children are living in poverty, while 58% of African American youth are not employed. 2 million more Latinos are in poverty today than when the President took his oath of office less than eight years ago. Another 14 million people have left the workforce entirely.
Household incomes are down more than $4,000 since the year 2000. Our manufacturing trade deficit has reached an all-time high – nearly $800 billion in a single year. The budget is no better.
President Obama has doubled our national debt to more than $19 trillion, and growing. Yet, what do we have to show for it? Our roads and bridges are falling apart, our airports are in Third World condition, and forty-three million Americans are on food stamps.
- More police officers shot, the GOP convention has had it’s problems, and we are in the middle of a record breaking heat wave
