Conservatives Take A Stand at The RNC in Cleveland

I’m so proud of Mike Lee and Ken Cuccinelli for standing up to Reince Priebus and the GOP establishment the other day.
Conservatives are fed up with this treatment by the GOP and we have to keep fighting for our policies and positions.- Alexis Deacon

Trump fundraiser resigns in anger after floor eruption
By Jonathan Easley – via The Hill
CLEVELAND — A top donor raising money for Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee says he has resigned in disgust after the party muscled through a vote on the convention floor that squashed the “Free the Delegates” movement.

Gary Emineth, the former North Dakota GOP chairman who joined the Trump-RNC joint finance committee earlier month, says he was disgusted by the floor vote and immediately texted his resignation to Priebus.

Emineth says he’s furious the campaign and RNC worked in tandem to keep delegates from voting their conscience.
“I was on the Trump finance committee and I just resigned because that bully tactic is absurd,” Emineth said. “I just texted them right now. Why can’t the people be heard? I’ve been texting Reince for 10 minutes. He said we didn’t have the votes. We had 10, 11 states. They peeled people back. They were calling delegations asking people to step off the committee. You don’t do this in America. You do this in other countries.”

Insurgent delegates looking to get a vote on the floor of the Republican National Convention for a measure that would free delegates from the primary and caucus results and allow them to vote their “conscience” was denied after the members of the RNC refused to allow them to be heard on the convention floor.

The delegates said they surpassed the threshold of a majority of delegates in seven states to join their efforts, saying they turned in enough signatures for 11 states.

But the RNC says they only turned in enough signatures for nine, and that delegates from three states rescinded their signatures, moving them below the seven-state threshold.

The “Free the Delegates” movement says the RNC won’t tell them which states left the movement. They believe the delegates were bullied into submission.

“If that’s how they’re doing the Republican Party, they can have it,” Emineth said, before calling on Priebus to resign.

“It’s a joke,” Emineth said.

    God bless Mike Lee and Ken Cuccinelli.

    I have only been able to stomach bits and pieces of this Convention turned Disgusting Trump Pep Rally. The fact that Ryan, Priebus & Manafort formed an alliance to shut out and screw over grassroots conservatives the day the roll call was supposed to take place was just the start. The reports of threats towards delegates who don’t support Trump makes me ill. The removal of delegates (who were trying to get petitions signed) from the floor by RNC officials – these thugs put brown shirts to shame. The family Trump propaganda, videos, speeches, etc. – ad nauseum.

    The only thing I am looking forward to is seeing/hearing the man who should have been our nominee speak tonight – and cheering on said honorable man – Senator Ted Cruz. I hope he blazes a path away from this party that has become a sewer populated with stinky rino rats and nationalist progressives.

    I say burn it, ladies and gentlemen. Walk the hell out. This party convention is infested to the core, and the delegates’ presence only gives this sewage tank fire a thin veneer of legitimacy.

    • This is why I love you so much Char! Well said my dear! You are the best! Completely the best! This comment says it all. I heartily concur! Sometimes, I can’t take it!!! Is it 2020 yet? I’m finished with the GOP & Priebus!

      I’ve missed you! How has your summer been? So much has happened since I talked to you last. Our country is really up in flames now. It’s been such a sad summer with Obama’s War on the Police in full swing now! Our president has blood on his hands for what he started long ago. He wanted this to happen back his first year in office when he had that silly beer summit. Obama’s buddies Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who launched his career, must be thrilled with what he has done to our poor law enforcement officers, God bless them. Obama and his ilk are all anti- American cop killers if you ask me. And that treacherous Hillary should be in jail instead of on her way to the White House. I’m disgusted and saddened by where our Republic is at this moment.

      I’m glad to see you. You are one of the few people who I can relate to amidst all this madness.

    • P.S. I loved your comment so much I posted it on twitter. Hope you don’t mind. 🙂

    • Char, your comment last month received 239 reactions on twitter: 106 retweets & 133 likes/ favorites. I also quoted you in the commentary I posted on July 21st. I hope you don’t mind. I was surprised you haven’t left any comments since this one. I was dying to know what you thought of Cruz’s speech and Trump’s speech at the GOP convention. You are probably really busy this summer. I know I am. Hope all is well with you. Stop by and chat some time. Miss you!!!

    • Char, where are you sister?????? I miss talking to you! Come say hi to me sometime. I’m getting worried about you!
