I'm not clear why "whole fruit" is banned from the convention center. Maybe they are afraid people will throw it. :lol:

According to the New York Times, former (but still aspiring) NFL quarterback Tim Tebow will speak at next week’s event in Cleveland.

Apparently, Tebow's latest non-football role was news to him this morning.

The former Heisman Trophy-winning Florida and NFL quarterback jumped onto Instagram on Thursday night to deny the reports, simply referring to them as "a rumor." The New York Times had his name on the reported list of speakers, as did the Associated Press, but Tebow claims they were wrong.

In an interview with the Washington Examiner on Thursday, Trump said that Palin was asked to speak, but that the distance ultimately precluded her from making the trip.

"It's a little bit difficult because of where she is," Trump said, referring to Palin's home state of Alaska. "We love Sarah. Little bit difficult because of, you know, it's a long ways away."

Cleveland Police Union Asks Kasich To Suspend Open Carry Laws For RNC

By SARA JERDE Published JULY 17, 2016, 3:06 PM EDT

Cleveland Police Union President Steve Loomis is reportedly preparing to ask Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) to suspend the open carry laws in Cuyahoga County for the Republican National Convention this week, Fox affiliate WJW reported Sunday.

His comments came hours after a shooting in Baton Rouge left three police officers dead.

"We are sending a letter to Gov. Kasich requesting assistance from him. He could very easily do some kind of executive order or something -- I don't care if it's constitutional or not at this point," Loomis reportedly told CNN.

He also said that he is requesting that officers don't work alone at intersections as part of the RNC's security.

Kasich released a statement through his office in response calling law enforcement a "noble, essential calling." He went on to say he couldn't suspend the law.

"Ohio governors do not have the power to arbitrarily suspend federal and state constitutional rights or state laws as suggested," Kasich said in the statement. "The bonds between our communities and police must be reset and rebuilt -- as we're doing in Ohio -- so our communities and officers can both be safe. Everyone has an important role to play in that renewal."

So pathetic. :lol:

I love how right wingers bash "limousine liberals" and the "Hollywood elite", yet never hesitate to parade around a "star" when they find out the person is a republican. What's sad is that they are usually hard pressed to find a celebrity who was ever relevant and not a total assclown.

By Editorial Board July 14

PLANNING TO visit the 1.7-square-mile area in downtown Cleveland where many of the events and protests connected to the Republican National Convention will be held next week? Be sure not to take tennis balls, metal-tipped umbrellas or canned goods, which will be banned — but no need to leave behind your AR-15 or other guns. Those will be allowed under Ohio’s open-carry laws.

:lol:

The speakers for the evening (and Baio is listed as one of them) do not begin until 7PM.

The first speaker of the evening is a cast member from the show the tv show Duck Dynasty. :lol: (Baio is listed as #4.)

the production is sort of embarrassing. out of tune and out of place singers...music starting when it isn't supposed to. some young girl singing with sunglasses on (maybe she is blind?).

the navy seal guy seems coked up. he has some crazy eyes.

it's all about how fucked up the country is and how much of a liar and criminal hillary is.

Trump doesn't know the answer to that question either.

I wonder if Christie is going to speak or even attend considering he rolled the dice and hitched his wagon to the Trump-mobile early on only to be snubbed when Trump picked Captain Unknown as his VP running mate.
