This post is for my regular readers that may be a Trump fan…..the news is just amazing……
2016 has been an excellent election show…..it has had something for everyone…..drama, laughter, stupidity and back stabbing….especially within the GOP.
It is no secret that Donald J. Trump is not the candidate for all Repubs…..since he became the presumptive nominee there have been rumors and plans to try and somehow keep him from the nomination…..
Next week the fun begins….the GOP Convention in Cleveland…….I do believe it will be many things but it will NOT be boring…….plus the city of Cleveland is running scared……
The city of Cleveland, Ohio is set to be the home of the Republican National Convention in July, and city officials are already gearing up for a particularly riotous event as they plan to spend a whopping $50 million grant from the federal government on riot gear and steel barriers for the occasion.
Congress approved the funds back in December due to the fact that the RNC is a designated National Special Security Event. Cleveland is working with the Secret Service to coordinate their efforts.
Cleveland is planning to buy 2,000 sets of riot gear including 26-inch collapsible batons and riot-control suits. In addition, the city is attempting to rent three miles of steel barriers in order to control crowds at the event.
The Convention is to be held on July 18 and officials are expecting about 50,000 visitors to the city. Due to the influx, Cleveland is bringing in extra officers from surrounding cities to help control the crowds.

The newest sneak attack looks like will be at the convention when they try to sabotage Trump’s choice for VP…..
Donald Trump gets to pick his own apprentices on reality TV—but the rules are different at the Republican National Convention. Anti-Trump Republicans trying to keep him off the GOP ticket have a Plan B: reject his vice presidential pick if they consider the choice unacceptable, NBC reports. In both parties, choosing a vice presidential nominee is already technically up to the delegates in both parties instead of the candidate—Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first to pick his own running mate—and the rebel Republicans want to change the GOP’s Rule 40 to make it easier to dump Trump’s choice. Among the several suggested changes: The rules currently state that any candidate for president or VP must have the support of delegates from eight states. The anti-Trump GOPers want to lower that number to three.
A source from the “Free the Delegates” group tells BuzzFeed that installing an alternative VP is seen as the “arranged marriage” option. “It’s the grassroots saying if you’re going to do this, you’re going to do it with our pick,” the source says, describing the three-state threshold as “high enough to weed out crazy people, while low enough to let a few states come to terms” with a rival candidate. Another proposed change is this addition: “The preference of any candidate seeking nomination for president of the United States shall have no bearing upon the submission of names for nomination for vice president of the United States nor the recording of votes for the same.” With just a week until the convention begins, NBC reports the suggested changes will be debated this week by the Rules Committee.
Apparently the Party of God does not accept the will of the people….I told everyone that the conventions would be entertaining……
