Under-reported or ignored by the media at the DNC

"Hundreds Of Sanders Delegates WALK OUT Of DNC And Launch Protest In Philly Streets(VIDEO)"

Breitbart reporter Patrick Howley filed a report on the recently concluded Democratic National Convention. If parts of his report are news to you, it’s because many in the legacy/ lamestream/ mainstream media didn’t cover it. Here’s a snippet (and notice all the empty seats in the above photo):

Floor Walk-Out

The walk-out by Bernie Sanders delegates immediately after the roll call vote was arguably the most significant act of defiance on the floor in recent convention history.

This reporter observed the carefully planned walkout from the grandstands a couple sections over from Bernie’s balcony, where he was busy getting feted for his silver medal. The commotion on the floor got started around the time Bernie’s brother Larry was toasting their late parents. My Breitbart News colleague Joel Pollak was on the packed convention floor texting me the protesters’ next location: the media center.

The protest at the media center was intense. Pro-Bernie agitators stormed through the glass doors while at least a hundred more crowded around inside. These were some of the top protest organizers on the Left at the top of their game (and negotiating with the police to avoid arrests).

The media center (which was just a big tent with no complimentary Wi-Fi) was completely shut down. How interesting that the top left-wing protesters in the country would choose the mainstream media’s encampment as the site of their surprise assault!

The mainstream media did not know how to handle this chaos aimed directly at them.

Donald J. Trump's Statement On America’s Future

Whether you watched the Clinton Coronation ceremonies or not, you will not want to miss Mr. Trump’s response to the DNC this past week:

At Hillary Clinton’s convention this week, Democrats have been speaking about a world that doesn’t exist. A world where America has full employment, where there’s no such thing as radical Islamic terrorism, where the border is totally secured, and where thousands of innocent Americans have not suffered from rising crime in cities like Baltimore and Chicago.

In the Democrats’ fantasy world, there is no problem with Hillary Clinton maintaining an illegal, exposed server full of classified information that could have been hacked by any foreign enemy, and in which Hillary Clinton risked prison time to delete 33,000 emails that were simply about yoga and wedding planning. In this world, there is no Hillary Clinton disaster in Syria, Libya and Egypt, ISIS doesn’t merit a mention, Iran isn’t on the path to nukes, convention stages don’t need American flags, and our great men and women of law enforcement, our police, do not need to be honored.

I propose a different vision for America, one where we can break up Washington’s rigged system, and empower all Americans to achieve their dreams. In our vision, we will put America First.

If we deliver this change, the future is limitless and we will Make America Great Again for everyone.

Weather forecast for Philadelphia DNC Day 4 : Flash floods

cartoon by Gary Varvel at indystar.com

City officials are urging residents and Democratic National Convention demonstrators to take caution because of potential strong storms and the possibility of flash floods throughout the region today.
The flash flood watch begins at 2 p.m. and continues through Friday at 7 p.m.
Officials warn some of the storms may contain torrential rainfall and result in a localized flash flood threat.
Too bad the DNC isn't being held in the Phillies' ballpark.

Chaos and sleaze at the DNC

Note the barrier wall constructed around the stage

From the City of Brotherly Love's CBS local media:

At least one protester was captured on video lighting a flag on fire and waving it in the air, while many others shoved the perimeter fence as police pushed back. The seven arrested were all taken to the Philadelphia Federal Detention Center and will appear before a judge later Thursday. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross commented on the incident:

“They were able to breach that fence. It’s kind of ridiculous in the sense that we were standing right there waiting for them. They see us. So, it’s not like it’s a surprise.”
Ross said, “It’s not like they thought they could get anywhere.”

Ross also spoke about the consequences saying, “They are now being charged with a federal offense.”
There are reports that one officer suffered minor injuries in the incident.
. . .
Earlier Wednesday, ten people were arrested after staging a sit-in at the Comcast Building in Center City.
The demonstrators chained themselves to a rolling gate for nearly an hour before being removed by police just before 1 p.m. The demonstrators were cited for obstruction and released.

Police say they issued 69 citations since the start of the DNC on Monday.

It may get even more chaotic this evening with Hillary’s acceptance speech.

As for The Sleaze Factor: Some commenters on FB and elsewhere have been waxing rhapsodic over President Bill Clinton’s keynote the other evening, you know, the one that "humanized" Hillary. In addition to the harrowing account of Juanita Broadderick’s encounter with him (the Breitbart story--  reviewing her testimony years ago to investigators for the Senate Judiciary Committee -- was linked on Drudge all day yesterday), this image is making the rounds:

Democratic National Convention and the Pledge of Allegiance

The Democratic National Convention is off to a chaotic start, and most Tea Party people will be following the outrageous headlines and reports at Drudge or other favorite aggregators. But this tweet deserves a bit of attention, just so we can keep our senses of humor:

VP candidate Sen. Tim Kaine, the GOP, and the Uniparty

Richard Fernandez (Belmont Club at the PJ Media blogsite) has a good analysis of the GOP official website statement about Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary’s pick for Vice President. Fernandez call it a “stunningly awful” statement, an almost GOP-lite endorsement of Kaine:

A Career Spent Taking Cautious Positions 
Anathema To The Party's Liberal Base

. . . It is as if Reince told the interns to "Come up with something that makes Kaine as likable as possible to our people."

For Tea Party readers who have been following Sundance’s blogs at Conservative Treehouse over the past couple of years, the mushy GOP website statement on Kaine comes as no surprise. The GOP establishment, and party chairman Reince Priebus, are reluctant, at best, to support Trump’s candidacy. At worst, some of the GOPe are downright hostile to the Trump candidacy, as seen in the “Never Trump” delegates from Iowa and Colorado who marched out of the Republican National Convention in a huff.

For Tea Party people who have not heard of the terms “Uniparty” or “Splitter Strategy,” nor followed Sundance’s “Tripwire” predictions based on his “Uniparty” analyses, today’s blog on Conservative Treehouse here gives a handy summary. At the bottom of the article, you’ll find links to Sundance’s previous blog posts that outlined the “Uniparty” theory, linked to the new GOP primary rules state-by-state to define the “Splitter Strategy,” and then calculated the Tripwires or predictions that give credence to the Uniparty theory. It was the accuracy of the many predictions – in sequence – that persuaded many readers to change their minds about what was unfolding. Not politics as usual. (Maybe readers will want to bookmark the page to go through all the posts linked at the bottom, as time permits.)

Once readers recognized what the “Uniparty” was, the behavior of the political class, the donor class, and the media became more comprehensible, albeit more reprehensible. Scrolling through the reader comments at Treehouse can be helpful and even reassuring; it’s a bit unnerving when we find ourselves in such uncharted waters.

FACES IN THE CROWDS during the Republican National Convention

FACES IN THE CROWDS during Day 4, 
the final day of the Republican National Convention ~ 
Photos by Pat Dooley Photography  

Who says Code Pink doesn't have a sense of humor? Check out the white sign in the middle, just above the Trump sign. Embiggen if necessary.

And finally, two Cleveland Tea Party people went to XO on Thursday evening before the prime time speeches -

and got to shake the hand of America's Sheriff, Milwaukee's David A. Clarke, Jr. Wow.

If you missed Sheriff Clarke's speech at the convention, go here. If you missed his epic encounter with CNN's Don Lemon, go here. Clarke is an inspiration to us all.

THANK YOU Cleveland Police Dept. and partners!!!

During the RNC this week, Cleveland has been crawling with paid protesters hoping to disrupt proceedings, but such efforts have been thus far mostly unsuccessful. Prior to RNC week, and having attended two meetings with presentations from law enforcement, Secret Service, and FBI, I was concerned that Cleveland was still vulnerable. This blog post is to say that no matter what happens tomorrow, Clevelanders owe an enormous thank you to the planning and preparations by Cleveland Police Dept. and its law enforcement partners.

Cleveland Tea Party’s roving photographer, Pat Dooley, took photographs today of many of the LEOs, and spoke for all of us when he thanked them for their service and efforts to keep us safe. You’ll see photographs of local and visiting police, mounted police, highway patrols, and others from Ohio State University, Cleveland Clinic, California, South Carolina, Pittsburgh, Austin TX, Florida, Georgia, Ohio National Guard, and many others. (scroll down for photographs or visit the entire album here.

THANK YOU Cleveland Police Dept. and partners!!!

UPDATE at 8:30pm: Geraldo is on O’Reilly at Fox giving credit to Gov. John Kasich for the successful security plans and measures in Cleveland. Whaaaaa  huuuhhhh??? Kasich had NOTHING to do with this! Kasich couldn’t even see his way clear to come to The Q to welcome the delegates to the Convention on Monday in his own state. It’s the Cleveland Police Dept. and FBI and Secret Service and law enforcement partners that deserve our gratitude.

America First Unity Rally for Trump report; Convention opens

If you missed yesterday's America First Unity Rally for Trump, you missed some outstanding presentations. Milo Yiannopoulos of Breitbart delivered an unapologetic and outrageously effective speech on "political correctness" and "Islam." It's up on You Tube here.

And Cleveland Tea Party's own Ralph King was in his usual excellent form:

For live streams of the prime-time speakers at the Convention yesterday evening, go to Treehouse's website here. I expected a mostly B-list roster, but the line-up was a powerhouse A-list all the way: Sheriff David Clarke, America's Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and an elegant and eloquent Melania Trump delivering the keynote, introduced by her husband. 

And don't miss Gov. Rick Perry's introduction of the Lone Survivor --  Marcus Luttrell's moving and powerful remarks are here. Wow!
