The 2016 Republican National
Convention to Be Held in a
City Known for Rock N’ Roll
& Great Sports

Independent Journal Review, by Kevin Boyd

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/8/2014 4:00:55 PM

Today, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus announced that Cleveland will host the 2016 Republican National Convention during a live, on-air interview with Fox News. Cleveland beat out Dallas for the rights to host the convention. From Cleveland.com: Cleveland edged out Dallas, the other finalist, as the recommended location for the convention, giving the city an opportunity to strut its stuff to a national crowd while placing Ohio even more firmly in the political spotlight for the upcoming presidential election. “I think it’s great,” Rob Frost, the Cuyahoga County Republican Party Chairman, said in an interview late Tuesday morning. “I’m really

LOL - the title refers to "City Known for Rock N´ Roll & Great Sports"... and then fails to mention any.
Sure, the Rock Hall of Fame is there... but "great sports"? Hehehe

# 1 Jim Brown alone makes Cleveland known for great sports.

Sadly, Jim Brown is indeed alone. The Indians can´t make it to the World Series. The Cavs can´t win in the play-offs, and the Browns haven´t amounted to a hill of beans since Bernie Kosar was the quarterback.

And I´m a fan...

Cat Stevens, aka Yusuf Islam, just got into the R&R Hall of Fame. So they have that going for them.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has turned into a political joke. Far too many early pioneers have yet to be included in their rosters. My guess is the clowns rinng the place are out to lunch. I do hope the GOP hasn´t made a bad choice to locate in the armpit of Ohio.

Again congratulations, Cleveland.

Full disclosure, I live in Columbus, so we love to make fun of Cleveland, but!!

Wow! You Ldotters will really reach to be snarky, won´t you. What does Cat Stevens have to do with it? Okay, I don´t like his religion nor his politics, but I love his music.

(if I only loved the music of conservative rockers, I wouldn´t have much to listen to)

That´s being said, the sports thing did give me a chuckle. When the Columbus Blue Jackets (hockey) won one (1) playoff game, local radio pointed out that was more in this century than the Browns and the Bengals. Combined.

But, I´m a lifelong Browns fan, and all I can say is

Rebuilding since 1964, and,
dammit, if the Saints can do it, the Browns can do it.

No GOP has made it to the White House without carrying Ohio. That the reason for the pick. Got nothing against Ohio or Cleveland. But something weird about a city that would elect that midget Dennis Kokosinawich as Mayor and then send him to congress. Cincinnati would also have been nice.

I am happy the GOP´s picked Cleveland first. The Dems also wanted Cleveland. Obama is going to be mad, mad, mad. As some of you know, Cleveland was a favorite visiting destination for Obama. In 2012 alone Obama was here five times. In fact, there were several precincts during the 2012 election where Romney did not get a single vote. How is that even possible?

I say congrats to GOP LDotters who will be within distance to go and enjoy themselves. However, I do not believe the Republican Convention being in Cleveland will, in the end, matter one itty bit whether we carry Ohio or not. The city unions will make a fortune.

First, Cat Stevens music is folk music, not rock music. I don´t care what his politics are with respect to the Hall of Fame.

Second, in 2012 the D convention was held in Charlotte, the Republicans carried NC. In 2012 the R convention was held in Tampa, Zippy won Florida. Please share again what electoral difference having the party convention in a given state makes.

The mainstreaming of liberalism
Washington Times (D.C.), by Robert W. Merry    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/1/2014 2:31:28 PM     Post Reply
One of the curious aspects of the Tea Party’s emergence during the past four years is the extent to which the mainstream media have fostered the idea that this political phenomenon represents a kind of radicalism. Certainly, some politicians of the so-called Tea Party have tossed out ideas and expressions that have been silly and warped. Does that mean, though, that the Tea Party, as a broad political movement, is radical? The answer is no. The Tea Party is a reactive movement, aimed at protecting the political mainstream from radical ideas, initiatives and policies of the left. Indeed, a review

Ronald Reagan kicked off his general election campaign on September 1, 1980, at Liberty State Park in New Jersey with Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty as his backdrop. The crowd was strategically filled with flag-waving Eastern Europeans who were there to raise Reagan’s profile with blue-collar, ethnic Catholic voters. Though Reagan arrived at the venue wearing a sports jacket and tie, Mrs. Reagan convinced him to discard both because of the extreme heat that day. The result was a tanned, handsome Reagan in a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up and top buttons undone, his hair blowing

A New York City man was fatally shot and three people were wounded just hours before the kickoff of Monday´s West Indian Day Parade, a popular city event that has been marred by violence in recent years. A 55-year-old man died at the scene of a 3:30 a.m. shooting about six blocks from the parade route, police said. A 22-year-old woman was shot in the ankle and a 22-year-old man was shot in the leg, police said. The two wounded people were taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition, police said.

Starting on Tuesday, ABC journalist David Muir will replace Diane Sawyer as the anchor of World News. Given the liberal legacy of predecessors like Peter Jennings and Sawyer, it´s not surprising that Muir has a history of fawning over "cool kid" Barack Obama and attacking conservatives. The Media Research Center has compiled a Profile in Bias of his worst examples of liberal bias. [See below for videos.] On April 9, 2009, Muir, then the World News weekend anchor, thrilled over pictures of pictures of Obama at the G-20 summit.

Here´s how well Charlie Crist´s conversion to the Democratic Party has been received in Florida: Even the man he beat as a Republican in 2006 now backs him. At a rally Thursday in Fort Lauderdale, former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Davis praised his former opponent. "The reason I stand here today is Charlie Crist," said Davis, as reported by the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. "As our governor, Charlie Crist will stand up for equality and respect for men, women of every creed and color, gay, straight, immigrant, [Florida] cracker." Democratic leaders have been in overdrive in recent days trying to persuade

Years after former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was mocked for being concerned about "death panels," the federal government may reimburse Medicare doctors for end-of-life consultations that critics say would only encourage sick patients to reject costly treatments to prolong life. The New York Times reports that "Medicare may begin covering end-of-life discussions next year if it approves a recent request from the American Medical Association," which is "the country’s largest association of physicians and medical students" and creates "billing codes for medical services, codes used by doctors, hospitals and insurers." According to the Times, the group "recently created codes for

Dog adopted me in 1995, six months or so into my first spell of ethnographic fieldwork among the Ju/’hoansi Bushmen in Namibia’s Kalahari Desert. I was living in the village of Skoonheid, named after an Afrikaner farm. He was the bravest of all the village dogs in seeking affection. The others loped around, their tails between their legs, trying to be invisible. They shied from physical contact with people but would respond with surprised and simpering gratitude if it was offered. Most of their physical interactions with people came in the form of kicks or flying stones. The village dogs’

Joan Rivers’ daughter is keeping her “fingers crossed” for a miracle to bring the 81-year-old comedic legend back from the brink — even as the family considers legal action over the botched procedure that caused her collapse. Doctors began lifting the feisty funny lady from her medically induced coma Sunday at Mount Sinai Hospital as Melissa Rivers, her only child, waited to see how the legendary comic will respond. “The waking-up process has begun and will take until Tuesday,” a source close to the family told the Daily News. “There is real concern that the part of the brain that controls

SEOUL- Three U.S. citizens detained in North Korea spoke to the U.S. television channel CNN on Monday with one pleading with the United States for help and another describing his situation as "urgent". Kenneth Bae, who was arrested 18 months ago and sentenced to 15 years hard labour for attempting to bring down the state, told CNN he was working eight hours a day, six days a week, and was the only inmate at a prison camp staffed by more than 20 officials, including a doctor.

PYONGYANG, North Korea — North Korea gave foreign media access on Monday to three detained Americans who said they have been able to contact their families and — watched by officials as they spoke — called for Washington to send a high-ranking representative to negotiate for their freedom. Jeffrey Fowle and Mathew Miller said they expect to face trial within a month. But they said they do not know what punishment they could face or what the specific charges against them are. Kenneth Bae, who already is serving a 15-year term, said his health has deteriorated at the labor camp

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August.

Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

Breitbart London’s James Delingpole was a guest on the show. During the discussion of the results, he said: "I think the thwacking great majority in that poll says it all.
