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.

Lobbyist, lawyer Thomas H.
Boggs Jr. dead at 73
Washington Post, by Adam Bernstein    Original Article

Thomas H. Boggs Jr., who sat for decades at the epicenter of Washington legal, business and political circles as the city’s marquee name in lobbying and political fund-raising, died Sept. 15 at his home in Chevy Chase. He was 73. The cause was an apparent heart attack, said his sister, the broadcast journalist Cokie Roberts. With a gregarious charisma that even his nemeses among good-government groups found hard to resist, Mr. Boggs spent four decades as a heavyweight in Washington influence peddling. Sometimes attending three fundraisers in a single night, he had a shrewd understanding of how the city operated

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

BAGHDAD -- The extremist-held Iraqi city of Mosul is set to usher in a new school year. But unlike years past, there will be no art or music. Classes about history, literature and Christianity have been "permanently annulled." The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has declared patriotic songs blasphemous and ordered that certain pictures be torn out of textbooks. But instead of compliance, Iraq´s second largest city has - at least so far - responded to the Sunni militants´ demands with silence. Although the extremists stipulated that the school year would begin Sept. 9, pupils have uniformly not

A luxury resort favored by celebrities including George Clooney and Jennifer Aniston has been battered by 125mph winds during a devastating storm on Mexico´s Baja California peninsula. At 9.45pm on Sunday, the Category 3 storm named Hurricane Odile slammed into the upscale resort of Cabo San Lucas, which is home to sprawling hotels and luxurious beach houses. Winds buffeted shelters, which had been prepared for as many as 30,000 people, as one of the worst storms on record hit the luxury retreats. Impoverished areas of the city and wider Baja area saw hundreds of homes destroyed. After the sun rose

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden told Fox News Sunday that up to 5,000 American troops will be in Iraq by the end of the year. He´s basing that estimate on the number of support troops it will take to carry out the air campaign against ISIS. The Hill: “In terms of intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, logistics, advice, command and control assistance, tactical air control parties, look I’m betting we’re up close 5,000 by the end of the year,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.” Hayden explained he doesn’t think they will be “combat maneuver units,” but predicted U.S. special operations forces

The federal government is pushing for more bike lanes on America’s roads in a new initiative designed to increase the amount of people who walk and bike as their main method of transportation. The Department of Transportation (DOT) released an action plan last week, detailing its plans to give local communities “road diets,” or turning driving lanes into bike lanes and pedestrian crossings. “The new pedestrian and bicycle safety initiative will promote design improvements to ensure safe and efficient routes for pedestrians and bicycles, promote behavioral safety, and provide education to help individuals make safer travel choices,” the agency announced

The Vikings reinstated Adrian Peterson, saying he will play this Sunday at New Orleans. The star running back was charged late last week on a felony count of injuring a child. He was arrested early Saturday morning in Houston after flying there, and was quickly released after posting $15,000 bond. Peterson will make his first court appearance Wednesday. He is expected to enter a plea at the hearing in Conroe, Texas, after his indictment for reckless or negligent injury to a child. He faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if found guilty. The Vikings deactivated

KENT: Clothing retailer Urban Outfitters sparked controversy Monday when the company’s online store posted a listing of a worn-looking sweatshirt bearing the name and logo of a local university. The Kent State University crew neck was marketed as “Washed soft and perfectly broken in, this vintage Kent State sweatshirt is cut in a loose, slouchy fit. Excellent vintage condition. We only have one, so get it or regret it!” While the shirt sold shortly thereafter, it featured blotches of red and holes in the upper left side of the shirt, creating what many believed to be allusion to the Kent

The Ebola virus ravaging West Africa remains unlikely to appear in Minnesota, home to more than 30,000 people of Liberian descent. Local health officials Sunday repeated earlier assurances that Twin Cities residents are not at risk of contracting the disease from recent immigrants or imported foods and merchandise. They, and a coalition of religious leaders who organized the information session at Elim Lutheran Church in Robbinsdale, urged that more information and education is needed to combat the stigmatization that has accompanied news of the disease’s rampage through Africa. “There are lots of students going back to school,” said Ellen Frerich,

“IT’S BEEN a great ride.” Those were Tony Auth’s words just two years ago, when the Pulitzer-winning cartoonist talked about his decision to retire, ending his remarkable four-decade run and reign at the Philadelphia Inquirer. At that time, Auth was brimming with joy and enthusiasm about the next phase of his career and life. At age 70, he had made the transition to drawing digitally, and he was eager to render iPad-sprung art for a new employer at an age when some people can’t wait to retire. For Auth, though, art seemed an ever-renewable resource. “Here I am, able to

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t
