July 19, 2016

"The Chair announces that Donald J. Trump, having received a majority of these votes entitled to be cast at the convention, has been selected as the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States."

Said Paul Ryan, just now, before slamming down the gavel.

And then he appoints the Escort Committee and lists 5 names — Donald Trump's 5 children.

UPDATE, about 10 minutes later: The nominating of Mike Pence for VP is also accomplished. 

UPDATE, 7:31: "And as First Lady, you viciously attacked the character of women who were sexually abused at the hands of your husband!" — Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day.

Update, 8:22: "Students of trivia will recall" that Paul Ryan was VP nominee 4 years ago, Paul Ryan says.

Update, 8:41: Christie invites the conventioneers to judge Hillary and they chant "Lock her up."

Update, 8:46: Christie just made me say out loud: "He would have been so much better as the VP. He's got so much more going on." That prosecutor vibe!

9:00: Tiffany, the outsider child, has her say. She's got a classic young woman style, like Miley Cyrus. She's followed by a Trump wine business lady, pushing the theory that Trump pushes women forward.

9:14: Donald Trump Jr. is doing a great job. Meade says "Like Bobby Kennedy" and that's what I was thinking.

9:45: Dr. Ben Carson was on fire, totally committed. Nice performance. A little weird, when he tied Hillary to Satan.... but other than that, nice job.

Trump won. Do I like that fact? No, I do not. But, he won, & quite soundly, too.

Queen Hillary R. Clinton will have Trump for breakfast. Her VP Kaine, Vilzack, or Warren will bury Pence.

Trump, true to his nature, will NOT prepare for debates. Queen with Media support will bury him.

Queen will get nothing but First Woman POTUS news story starting Labor Day weekend.

GOP is finished. GOP is dead. Long Live the Queen and Bill, back in Their White House, for ever and ever.

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/former-ag-michael-mukasey-says-hes-wrong-about-clinton-e-n417291

"Former U.S. attorney general Michael Mukasey says he was wrong to suggest that if Hillary Clinton was ever convicted of destroying government records by erasing the contents of her email server, she would be legally unqualified for the presidency.

The suggestion came Monday from Mukasey, a former federal judge who served as attorney general during former president George W. Bush's administration. He was also named as an early adviser to the Jeb Bush campaign."

Anyone remeber this?

The Right of Bill Clinton to sexually assault women and then to have Hillary destroy those women shall not be infringed.

Perhaps predictions of men in suits, voices artificially amplified and commercials in between shots of the convention!

Apparently "Unknown" just realized that Mukasey is simply reflecting on the fact that the Constitution does not bar a convicted felon from running for the Presidency.

Another astonishing revelation!

MICHAEL B. MUKASEY

For a hint of why a Donald Trump presidency would imperil our national security, consider just a couple of Trump’s suggestions for protecting us against Islamist terrorists. He would start with a “temporary” ban on the entry of alien Muslims into the United States until “our leaders can figure out what the hell is going on.” This prescription overlooks that many people already have figured out precisely “what the hell is going on” — that we face a supremacist movement based in Islam that is intent on destroying Western civilization — and have intelligent suggestions for dealing with it. Moreover, Trump’s proposal would assure the enmity of all Muslims, including those whose support we need if we are to prevail. Even assuming an infallible way to identify who is Muslim, the proposal is both under- and over-inclusive. It is under-inclusive because it does not address potential terrorists who have U.S. passports or residence permits, or are already here, or may threaten us abroad; it is over-inclusive because it bars the huge majority of Muslims who are not potential terrorists. Trump says he would order the military to kill the families of terrorists. That would be a direct violation of the most basic laws of armed conflict, which require that deadly force be used only when required by military necessity, under circumstances that allow distinction between military and civilian targets, and when incidental damage to non-military targets is proportional to the military advantage gained. A military that adhered to the laws of armed conflict would necessarily disobey such an order; if it followed the order, both the person who gave it and those who followed it would be subject to prosecution for war crimes. We have already suffered seven years of feckless leadership that has invited the contempt of our enemies and the distrust of our friends. We remain the world’s strongest power and can recover; but to inspire the respect that creates fear and trust when and where each is necessary, we will need a president who summons our strength with a reality-based strategic vision, not one who summons applause with tantrums and homicidal fantasies. — Michael B. Mukasey served as U.S. attorney general from 2007 to 2009 and as a U.S. district judge from 1988 to 2006. He has advised the Jeb Bush campaign on national-security issues.

Cuz he got more votes than anyone else?
Why are the Dems nominating Hillary? She's venal, corrupt, and has little experience in elective office, even compared to Obama. Everything Hillary has accomplished, she owes to her husband (a serial rapist, BTW). She f*cked up as secretary of state. She has negative charisma, and her health is lousy. Bernie will probably outlive her. Biden will probably outlive her. Hell, GHW Bush will probably outlive her.
How much more f*cked up can you be than wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt as you head down to the polls to vote for Hillary?

Moneyrunner said...

Why should we be surprised that one of Hillary's signature characteristics should be discussed at the Republican convention? Enabling sexual predators is what Democrats do when they're not accusing all men of being sexual predators, all Republicans of waging war on women and inviting cop killers to the White House.

Sebastian said...

"Lady, you viciously attacked the character of women who were sexually abused at the hands of your husband!" — Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day." It's a start. They should devote a whole evening to her transgressions, from Whitewater and Castle Grande onward. Just begin with Webster Hubbell, there must be a nice mug shot of him somewhere, perhaps fit in a picture of Chelsea if you want to be really mean-spirited, and take it from there. Review Juanita and Paula, by name and with specifics. Have some good lines for the crowd to respond to: "Who do you believe--her or the women? -- The women" "What did she do? -- She lied" -- and so on.

While polls don't mean too much at this point, they have to making be any leftist brighter than Shiloh nervous.

Hill has already spent a shit ton of money. She has the media in the back pocket of her size 20 pantsuit. She's running against a guy with a real talent for sticking his foot in his mouth. She should be ahead by 15 points at least. She still has a fight on her hands.


You know what the one really fun thing about this election is? No matter what Trump's sins are, you can point out that Hillary and the Dems committed the same ones and did it on a much bigger scale. Of course, that won't sway her sycophants, but everyone else knows how sleazy the Clintons are.

Exactly how many countries has Hillary given to ISIS?

Unknown said...

Donald Trump’s vice presidential nominee, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R), praised Hillary Clinton for her handling of the chaos in Libya during the early days of civil unrest there and encouraged the Obama administration to take aggressive action in the country.

The comments, which came during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing in March 2011, put Pence at odds with the man with whom he now shares a ticket. Though Trump initially called for the U.S. to help Libyan rebels oust the country’s long-ruling dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, he has since reversed course. During the campaign, he harshly criticized the invasion of Libya and the role that Clinton, as secretary of state, specifically played in it.

“Her invasion of Libya handed the country over to ISIS, the barbarians,” he said in a recent speech.

During the March 2011 hearing, Pence, then a congressman, offered Clinton pro forma niceties for her role during the Libya crisis. But he also went on to “encourage and urge the administration to stand with” the rebels, and called for “a coordinated international response, including a no-fly zone.” He added, emphatically, “Gaddafi must go.”


“I’m grateful to hear the secretary of state and the administration take that position unambiguously,” Pence said.

I see the left backed away from outside demonstrations against Trump while inside he managed the rules so as to suppress the neverTrump internal insurrection. Outside and inside chaos was supposed to demonstrate how the Donald couldn't run anything. That didn't happen. Moving on (rather quickly) the left (now biting ankles like rabid chipmunks) reforms itself around Crooked Hillary who if she carries inner city precincts in Obama-like numbers (such as 102% of all registered voters) will win.

And not otherwise.

And since her policies have resulted in huge increases in the murder rates in the black areas of cities she should certainly carry those same areas as well as other liberal areas. Because? - well, the reason is ... unknown. Who can explain?

Shhhh. Wait until your government appointed betters pre-review your blog postings.

PBandJ_LeDouanier said...

Btw, does this dope really think he can hop on a D-10 and he's doing the same thing as a professional operator? How can he not understand that this is an insult? Being skilled at blue color work isn't like being born w/ a silver spoon in your mouth. It doesn't just happen.

You're the one with the haughty vibe, jelly...own it!

Drago said...

PB&J: "I don't think so, after all lowly educated doesn't mean chump or sucker."

Uh oh. Another lefty who has deviated from the party line.

Not looking good for you.

AprilApple said...

Hillary will sell America - and the world, down the river for a buck.

She takes money from corrupt dictators and unsavory characters, for her own personal gain.

It was the video.

Jon Ericson said...

Ah, I see the second shift has finally arrived!
Over to you Drago!
I'm exhausted and amused.
XOXO Inga.

LOL

Thanks for making his point for him.

Well played moron.

YH: "You mean, as opposed to having silver-spoon-in-her-mouth-but-still-too-stupid-to-find-her-own-ass Chelsea Clinton talk down to them?"

It's Fens Law, all the way down.

Guildofcannonballs said...

Hillary will have to exterminate her V.P. pick after she loses, it will have to be that persons fault that Hillary wasn't given the perks of POTUS. That person, whoever it is, will have effectively taken the history Hillary earned and vaporized it.

They will pay.

And their friends and family, too.

And all their pets, especially any little mangy dogs!

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be
Friends of Hillary!

If you need darker hog, go hang with the BLMers!

Terry said...

Donald J. Trump is now emailing me, and asking me for $.

PBandJ_LeDouanier said...

"Thanks for making his point for him."

I doubt his point is that he's a rich out of touch prick who knows nothing about actual, day in day out blue color work.

Drago said...

Guild: "Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be
Friends of Hillary!"

And don't let your young girls get within reach of Bill and his "friend" Jeffrey.

AprilApple said...

Jr. is rocking it.

Say no to personal enrichment. Say no to Hillary

You mean, as opposed to having silver-spoon-in-her-mouth-but-still-too-stupid-to-find-her-own-ass Chelsea Clinton talk down to them?

Or, remember when Teresa Heinz-Kerry, John Kerry's meal ticket, got up there & started her speech to the unwashed in French? Good times, good times...

You know, I thought it was supposed to be really virtuous when the high & mighty deign to help their underlings. Like, you know, what a virtuous guy FDR was supposed to be.

Drago, re-posted because "deign" was "deisn", which made no sense.

Drago said...

PB&J: "I doubt his point is that he's a rich out of touch prick who knows nothing about actual, day in day out blue color work."

Your right. That wasn't his point.

Keep going idiot. You're doing great!

shiloh said...

Please Althouse cons I beseech you to praise the donald on his big night and stop talking about Hillary, Chelsea and Bill.

ok, ok, that's an impossibility as our 90/10 con majority has no willpower. They are truly obsessed!

carry on

Our Titus, titular head of BlackHogsMatter

PBandJ_LeDouanier said...

It's funny that he doesn't understand what the real workers think when the big boss's bratty kids show up to play with the D-10.

Drago said...

Shiloh: "They are truly obsessed!"

Note to self: lefties consider speaking about the other party during your convention represents an "obsession".

I'll bet Shiloh hated Ann Richards speech about HWBush.

Fen's Law. Over and over and over.

Jon Ericson said...

Big chuckle there, chicklit!

AprilApple said...

Hillary is so corrupt - it eats the room every time.

Titus said...

They are mostly fat and ugly and dress poorly. Make america really fat and white and old and ugly again and like forever.

I have seriously never seen a room full of ol fat white uglies like this crew in cleaveland. And definitely not a gay or Latino anywhere to be found. Winning

YoungHegelian said...

@chicklit,

titular head of BlackHogsMatter

"Titular", as in "tits"?

AReasonableMan said...

Christie and Trump Jr. have been the only really memorable speakers tonight.

Drago said...

PBandJ_LeDouanier: "It's funny that he doesn't understand what the real workers think when the big boss's bratty kids show up to play with the D-10."

Every "real" worker knows that PB&J knows their minds and speaks for them.

Thanks PB&J!

PBandJ_LeDouanier said...

Btw, I've been the idiot boss who shows up onsite to play with the D-10 (actually only a D-8). But, at least I'm self aware.

Drago said...

Titus: "They are mostly fat and ugly and dress poorly. Make america really fat and white and old and ugly again and like forever."

Hush now and eat your cheese curds.

Titus said...

Tim gunn should go there and do a fat big hair oldie pube makeover

Jon Ericson said...

Well, Titus, get ready for the new reality!
White Hogs!

AprilApple said...

Paul Ryan was solid - but Jr. and Christie knocked it out.

chickelit said...

shilho said...Please Althouse cons I beseech you to praise the donald on his big night and stop talking about Hillary, Chelsea and Bill.

When it's your party's turn next, I promise to write about Trump.

Terry said...

These days, blue collar work is what you do until you finish grad school.
You didn't think 'Barrista' was a white collar job, did you? The guy who schedules the next shift at McDonalds is a manager. You just make coffee.

Drago said...

PBandJ_LeDouanier: "Btw, I've been the idiot boss who shows up onsite to play with the D-10 (actually only a D-8)."

Now that rings all too true.

Shorter PB&J: I was an idiot boss, so everyone else has to be one too!

AReasonableMan said...

The clowns over at the Corner are loving them some Trump Jr.

Unknown said...

A President who funded his own campaign? Really?

http://www.nationalmemo.com/still-no-evidence-that-donald-trump-has-self-funded-his-campaign/

"Donald Trump has contributed a total of $395,508 to his campaign, as of his latest Federal Election Commission filing in June.

The number Trump refers to when he talks about “self-funding” his campaign — usually $50 million, though the latest government figure is $45.7 million — is the amount he has loaned his campaign.

And though Donald claims to have converted these loans into outright contributions, there is no evidence that this is the case.

According to Lawrence Noble, general counsel of the non-partisan Campaign Legal Center, Trump must submit public documentation to the FEC at some point recording the conversion of his loans into contributions. Representatives of the FEC said Monday that they still have not received any such documentation from the Trump campaign."

Drago said...

Unknown reverts to the funding meme!!

Hilarious!

YoungHegelian said...

@Titus,

And definitely not a gay or Latino anywhere

You missed Milo Yiannopoulis' speech. he got up & had 'em cheering with his "Fags for Trump" speech.

No "Latinos"... What do you think "Latinos" look like, Titus? The Frito Bandito? Latinos who tend to vote Republican from the border states look, well, like a slightly browner version of any of us here, including you.

PBandJ_LeDouanier said...

"Shorter PB&J: I was an idiot boss, so everyone else has to be one too!"

This mini-Trump went way beyond idiot when he compared himself to real operators, as if jumping on daddy's toys makes you a man of the little people. Prick is as prick does.

Big Mike said...

@Titus, Milo Yiannopoulos disagrees with you. And he's probably better looking than you are.

Guildofcannonballs said...

Unlike Bush, Hillary has effectively legalized rape for her client who raped the 12 year old.

Guilty as sin, free as a bird.

Ha ha ha ha

Cackle cackle cackle.


Ah the memories...

Now, let's do this nationwide. Bill can thrust himself to this just and bloody cause like few other men in history could imagine.

Drago said...

YH: "No "Latinos"... What do you think "Latinos" look like, Titus? The Frito Bandito?"

Titus is a sad aging queen from Wisconsin and has no idea that latinos are just like everyone else in their range of appearance.

No idea at all.

That's what happens when all you do during the long winters is watch "Chico and The Man" reruns.

Drago said...

PB&J: "This mini-Trump went way beyond idiot when he compared himself to real operators, as if jumping on daddy's toys makes you a man of the little people."

Wait! Trump doesn't have any toys. He's a con man with no real wealth at all. It's all a lie!!!!eleventy!!

When lefty memes collide.

chickelit said...

@Big Mike: Titus despises Milo Yiannopoulos. He's definitely a "bottom for Rodham."

You have a reasonable point here, but Trump clearly has a rapport with working people, which is the way he wins, if he wins.

Unknown said...

Donald Jr. made the claim his father funded his own campaign. I didn't bring up the meme. Donald Jr did. Weren't you listening Drago? ADHD?

AprilApple said...

"No one who has lost the trust of the American people should ever be president."

Drago said...

ARM: "You have a reasonable point here, but Trump clearly has a rapport with working people, which is the way he wins, if he wins."

ARM, you have been consistently objective in your assessments of Trump so I would advise you not to spend much time trying to convince PB&J ("The idiot boss") of anything.

After all, he is an idiot boss.

And?
