Trump Tosses Aside Tradition And Takes Center Stage At Day One Of RNC

Published

on

President Trump tossed aside tradition and put himself front and center on the stage of the Republican National Convention. Trump delivered a speech to the delegates before the main programming even kicked off, and then later made an appearance at the White House alongside COVID-19 workers, whom he took time to thank, along with freed American hostages.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Organizers are keen to use the week to brand Democratic nominee Joe Biden a threat to America. But in the event, the day’s proceedings served as a reminder that Trump has captured the Republican Party from top to bottom.

Critics pointed to the president’s vanity in appearing before the traditional Thursday slot. But presidential historians also pointed out that Trump’s divisive rise to the top of the GOP meant organizers could not draw on the usual speakers drawn from previous presidents and nominees.

In the first hour of the evening programming, Trump appeared in the East Room of the White House with a trucker, a nurse, law enforcement officers, a postal worker, and others who provided essential services through the pandemic.

“When crisis came, millions of everyday Americans rose to the challenge,” he said in a voiceover to a video montage. “In their actions, we see the true greatness of the American character. We always find a way to victory.”

Later on, Trump met with hostages that had been freed from captivity in various places around the world. The president stated that six of those individuals had been freed as a direct result of actions taken by his administration.

Notice how the mainstream media wants to talk about Trump being vain? Perhaps he just wanted to do something different? Are these folks totally incapable of ever leaving the president and his choices alone? Does everything need to be some sort of assault on the man?

It seems that’s the point in the election we have arrived at, though if you really look at things, this is how they’ve been acting from the very beginning.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
