Judge Jeanine to Establishment GOP: ‘You’re in Power, Damn It! Do Something, Pass Something, Cut This Kumbaya Crap’

Fox News Channel’s Jeanine Pirro went after the GOP establishment Saturday on “Justice.” Pirro accused the establishment Republicans leaders of watching the Democrats “railroad their president, and then urged them to prove their loyalty by convincing everyone that they are not in on the “effort to take down” President Donald Trump. “The Republican establishment not fighting for the commander-in-chief as day after day they watch him being savaged, forcing him to defend himself and run the country. Think about it. If he’s knocked out, the succession is clear and things go back to the way they were,” Pirro said. “You’re in power, damn it!” she later exclaimed. “Do something, pass something, cut this kumbaya crap, put on your big boy pants and act like you’re in power, act like you give a damn! And more importantly, convince us that you are not in on the effort to take down the president of the United States.”

Agreed!  And well said, your honor.  In less than 2 years, the next Congress will be sworn in.  And, it may or may not be under GOP control.  So, NOW is the time to repeal and replace Obamacare, overhaul our outdated bloated and confiscatory tax code and enact MASSIVE tax cuts for ALL Americans, BUILD THE WALL on our southern border and secure that border once and for all, confirm qualified conservative Trump court nominees, and cut the size and scope of our out of control federal government.  Those were the reasons Trump was elected this past November!  And for the first time since the 1920s a Republican president has a GOP controlled Congress in both chambers as the new Republican president is trying to enact his agenda that America voted for in the last election.  Think about that!  It’s almost been a CENTURY since we’ve had such an opportunity, and the entrenched, and yes liberal, establishment in the GOP (which IS the majority, unfortunately) might as well change sides and be Dems.  The worst, of course is Sen. John McCain (R-AZ); a man who still hasn’t gotten over his defeat by Obama…and a man who supported Hillary (yes, Hillary) over Trump.  He’s a grumpy old fossil who holds a grudge and should have retired years ago.  Sure we ALL honor his service in Vietnam.  But, the last decade or so as a Senator has been a disaster.  But, I digress..  It’s people like that who are undermining what needs to get done in the Capitol, and we have less than 2 years to get a LOT done.  So, Judge Jeanine is exactly right.  The House and Senate GOP need to rally behind our new President regardless of what silly daily Tweet may send out…and rally behind his excellent agenda and his excellent nominees.  His cabinet is far and away the most conservative we had in decades.  Its even more conservative than Reagans!  And, c’mon..  His judicial pics have been home runs.  So, disregard his rhetoric, and look at what he’s actually done in his short time in office…and remember…  We almost got stuck with Hillary.  Yeah…exactly!  So, once you’ve wiped the vomit remnants from your mouth, call or email your member of Congress and BOTH U.S. Senators (ESPECIALL if they are Republican) and tell them to get off their butts and replace Obamacare, support the wall on the southern border, demand tax cuts for ALL Americans, and support Trumps nominees NOW!!!

Big Government Republicans Rebuke Trump Budget

Kentucky Republican congressman Hal Rogers, who has spent more than three decades on the House Appropriations Committee, including six years as the chairman, rejected President Donald Trump’s fiscal year 2018 budget as Congress begins consideration of the president’s rearrangement of priorities. “While we have a responsibility to reduce our federal deficit, I am disappointed that many of the reductions and eliminations proposed in the President’s skinny budget are draconian, careless and counterproductive,” said Rogers, one of the so-called “cardinals,” the nickname for the lawmakers controlling how federal money is spent. Rogers said he was concerned about cuts to programs in Kentucky. “In particular, the Appalachian Regional Commission has a long-standing history of bipartisan support in Congress because of its proven ability to help reduce poverty rates and extend basic necessities to communities across the Appalachian region,” he said. “Today, nearly everyone in the region has access to clean water and sewer, the workforce is diversifying, educational opportunities are improving, and rural technology is finally advancing to 21st Century standards. “We will certainly review this budget proposal, but Congress ultimately has the power of the purse. As the full budget picture emerges in the coming weeks, I am optimistic that we can work with the Administration to responsibly fund the federal government, including those agencies which serve as vital economic lifelines in rural parts of the country that are still working to overcome substantial challenges. Another top House Republican and the chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, Rep. Mike Conaway, took shots at the president’s cuts to the agriculture programs. “At first blush, I am pleased that the administration is working to restore the strength of our nation’s armed forces to make sure that our men and women in uniform have the equipment that they need to defend our country and our interests around the world,” said Conaway, a Texas Republican who also sits on both the Intelligence and Armed Services Committee. “On the USDA budget, I am concerned that the cuts, while relatively small in the context of the total federal budget, could hamper some vital work of the department,” he said. “I think it is very important to remember that net farm income is down 50 percent from where it stood just four years ago. America’s farmers and ranchers are struggling, and we need to be extremely careful not to exacerbate these conditions. In fact, we need to do all we can to be there to help our farmers and ranchers. The work they do is critical. “I think it is very important to remember that net farm income is down 50 percent from where it stood just four years ago. America’s farmers and ranchers are struggling, and we need to be extremely careful not to exacerbate these conditions. In fact, we need to do all we can to be there to help our farmers and ranchers.” Another Republican taking on the president’s budget cuts is Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio). “The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative has been a critical tool in our efforts to help protect and restore Lake Erie, and when the Obama administration proposed cuts to the program, I helped lead the effort to restore full funding,” he said. “I have long championed this program, and I’m committed to continuing to do everything I can to protect and preserve Lake Erie, including preserving this critical program and its funding.” When he announced the president’s budget, Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, explained that his budget request was based on Trump’s own speeches and campaign promises. “Knowing what you know about the President, you could imagine what that budget would look like before you even see it..”

Indeed!  It’s disappointing to see SO many Republicans like these otherwise quality legislators giving in to their inner-liberal, knee-jerk need to give their respective districts the pork they’ve been so used to giving them…in order to buy their votes.  The size and scope of the federal government has progressively grown for decades.  And, now, we actually have a President who wants to trim the fraud, abuse, and waste of federal taxpayer dollars from the federal budget, just as he promised he would.  As Mr. Mulvaney rightly suggests, this should be NO surprise to anyone.  This is just Trump keeping another one of his promises; in this case, to “drain the swamp.”  To read the rest of this article, click on the text above.

The Spirit of America: Conservative Grassroots Leaders Plan Massive Pro-Trump Demonstrations Nationwide

Conservative grassroots leaders are planning a series of massive pro-President Donald Trump rallies nationwide, Breitbart News has learned exclusively. On Feb. 27 and March 4, the rallies—dubbed the Spirit of America Rallies—will spring up nationwide in cities and towns across America. “These rallies are inclusive, non-partisan, and open to anyone supporting President Trump in his efforts to bring back manufacturing jobs to America, put the security of our nation ahead of political correctness, improve our infrastructure, revitalize the inner cities and secure our nation’s borders,” Debbie Dooley, a national co-founder of the Tea Party movement and a key organizer of the Spirit of America rallies, says in a press release obtained by Breitbart News ahead of its public release. Since President Trump’s election, during his time as president-elect and since his inauguration on Jan. 20, hardcore progressive leftists have been repeatedly protesting him in a sometimes violent manner. These rallies, organizers say, are meant to be a peaceful show of force from the “silent majority” that delivered Trump a landslide electoral college victory over failed Democratic president Hillary Rodham Clinton. Dooley told Breitbart News that since the anti-Trump women’s march in D.C. after the president’s inauguration, she has received so many calls from Trump supporters–including many, many women Trump supporters–urging her to organize a show of force among the silent majority nationwide in response–that she had to turn off her cell phone so she could get work done. The Spirit of America rallies are not Tea Party rallies, she adds, and she hopes that Democrat groups backing Trump–there were many of them nationwide, forming a collective called the “Trumpocrats”–will get involved and step up to help the president, too. She also notes that the selection of Feb. 27 as the kickoff date of these pro-Trump rallies is significant, since that was the first day of the Tea Party movement back in 2009. “I am proud to lead the charge here in Louisiana to get supporters of President Trump to show their support of his policy agenda through these Spirit of America rallies,” Col. Rob Maness, a retired Air Force colonel, founder of GatorPAC and two-time conservative Senate candidate in Louisiana who’s also involved in helping the rallies in his home state, added in the release. “Average citizens from across the political spectrum and all walks of life elected Mr. Trump and we at GatorPAC are especially pleased to help him with his national effort to Make America Great Again and #DrainTheSwamp priorities in Washington D.C.” Ralph King, an elector for President Trump from Ohio and the co-founder of Main Street Patriots, added that he believes “the American electorate spoke loud and clear this past November.” “These Spirit of America Rallies are a continuation of the collective voice of Americans that embrace President Trump’s policies to put the American workers and citizens first once again,” King said. Rallies are in the works in states as far-flung as Arizona, Georgia, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, New Jersey, Ohio, South Carolina, and Washington state—as well as other states, organizers say.

Trump Picks Ronna Romney McDaniel for RNC Chair

Gov. Mitt Romney may have been passed over for secretary of state, but at least another member of his family has been chosen a leader in the Republican Party. Donald Trump has reportedly picked Michigan GOP chairwoman, Ronna Romney McDaniel, to lead the Republican national committee. McDaniel is the niece of the 2012 Republican presidential nominee. Trump’s final decision comes as no surprise to people who have been following the race closely. In what started out as a huge crowd of contenders amidst the jockeying for Trump’s approval, the president-elect narrowed down his list to two choices by the end of the week: Georgia political operative Nick Ayers and Ronna Romney McDaniel. By the end of it, insiders had said Trump was leaning towards McDaniel. The Trump team had mostly divided into two camps in their quest to influence Trump’s mind. Vice president-elect Mike Pence and Steve Bannon pushed Trump to choose Ayers. The Georgia operative had impressed Pence as he was an aide to him. Incoming senior advisor Steve Bannon also pulled for Ayers – wanting, what he viewed, a political outsider. In the end, it was incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus who proved most persuasive. Priebus is the current RNC chairman so naturally Trump viewed his opinion as most relevant. Priebus was impressed with McDaniel’s work in turning Michigan red this election year – the first time it’s happened since the state voted for George H. W. Bush in 1988. At the Friday rally in Grand Rapids, the president-elect showered her with compliments. “What a great job. You and your people have done an incredible job,” he said, referring to work with the Michigan Republican Party. Trump may have picked McDaniel for the position, but technically the decision is made by the RNC’s 168-member executive committee. However, a Republican president’s endorsement is critical. Numerous members of the committee have said they will pick whomever Trump chooses. The committee will vote in January.

Definitely something to keep on eye on…

Conservative Legend Phyllis Schlafly Dies At 92

Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly died on Monday afternoon. The “Sweetheart of the Silent Majority” passed away surrounded by family in her home in Ladue, Missouri just a short 10-minute drive from where she was born in St. Louis on August 15, 1924. Her death marks a palpable loss for the conservative movement which, just last month, celebrated the grassroots heroine’s 92nd birthday. An accomplished lawyer, activist, author, and mother of six, Phyllis Schlafly has been described as the embodiment of the ideal American woman. As Sen. Jeff Sessions wrote in a statement submitted for the Congressional Record, “dynamic, smart, beautiful, and articulate,” Schlafly has “fearlessly” and “tirelessly… championed the American family and American values.” In 1963, the publisher of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat put it this way: “Phyllis Schlafly stands for everything that has made America great and for those things which will keep it that way.” Schlafly enjoyed a rich family life. Married in 1949, she and her late-husband, Fred, shared forty-four happy years together as well as six children, sixteen grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. Never one to see her femininity as antithetical to her career goals, Schlafly was awarded Illinois’ Mother of the Year only a few years before being named one of the 100 Most Important Women of the 20th Century by the Ladies’ Home Journal. Revered for her steadfast judgement, Schlafly was a guiding light to many conservatives, who looked to her to determine the political battles of the day. Most recently, the “godmother of the conservative movement” led the charge against the Gang of Eight amnesty plan and President Obama’s Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. Unafraid to go toe-to-toe with some of the most powerful men in the nation, Schlafly was known for engaging in fights of principle all while projecting her irresistible charm, grace and wit. Schlafly understood feminism not as an effort to erase or wipe away the unique, distinguishing features of women, but rather to embrace and encourage all of the special and wondrous things about womanhood. Whereas modern feminism teaches that a little girl is not so different from a little boy and that society should recognize no real difference between the two, Schlafly celebrated motherhood and femininity, and perceived the differences amongst the sexes as something to be extolled rather than repressed. A vocal proponent for empowering all Americans, Schlafly fought tirelessly against the social institutions that teach the “absolutely false” narrative that “women are victims of the patriarchy and [that] it’s up to new laws in the Constitution to remedy this second-class citizenship of women.” “American women are the most fortunate class of people who ever lived on the face of the earth,” Schlafly proclaimed in 2012. “We can do anything we want to do.” Schlafly’s life was truly a testament to what she preached. A child of Great Depression, she paid her way through college by putting in 48-hour work weeks as a gunner testing ammunition at the largest ammunition plant in the world, the St. Louis Ordnance Plant. Schlafly tested .30 and .50 caliber ammunition for accuracy, penetration, velocity, and aircraft function before the government would accept the ammunition for the war effort during World War II. Despite the rigors of a full-time job working the midnight to 8am shift at the ordnance plant, Schlafly still managed to finish her schooling in just three years, graduating from Washington University in St. Louis Phi Beta Kappa. She then went on to get her master’s degree in Government from Harvard University in 1945, and her J.D. from Washington University Law School in 1978. Schlafly was active in politics for more than one-quarter of all American history. She began volunteering for the Republican Party in 1945 when she worked as a campaign manager for Claude Bakewell, a successful Republican candidate for Congress. Schlafly attended every single Republican National Convention since 1952 and has been at the center of nearly every major political battle since then. Beginning in the 1950s and 60s, Schlafly was instrumental in helping to launch the anti-Communist movement by forming 5,000 study groups throughout American homes to inform grassroots voters about the evils of Communism. As an activist, Schlafly seemed driven by her mission to “educate [conservatives], train them, and stand up for them… [and to] let the grassroots be heard.” An advocate for truth and the free dissemination of information, Schlafly spoke frequently of the need for “news people who put out the truth instead of the packaged truth that the strategists have written.” When she found such truth-telling to be lacking in corporate media, Schlafly assumed the mantle herself. The Phyllis Schlafly Report — her monthly newsletter designed to keep conservatives informed on the pressing issues of the day — just entered its 50th year of publication with more than 600 reports published. Schlafly had been described as the nation’s “best pamphleteer since Thomas Paine.” Her fabled foray onto the national political stage began with the publication of her 1964 classic A Choice Not An Echo. At the time of its writing, Schlafly was a housewife in a little town of Alton, Illinois, with six small children. Recognizing that it was unlikely anyone would publish her book, she opted to publish it herself and sell it out of her garage. A huge success, the book ultimately sold over three million copies, inspired a generation of conservatives, and became the definitive text delineating the battle lines between the conservative grassroots and the Republican Party elites. In keeping with her lifelong devotion to educating the American electorate, the book is a detailed history of Republican National Conventions, and it shined a spotlight on the corrupt political process that historically has allowed elite cosmopolitan “kingmakers” to rig the system and elect candidates who will represent their donor class agenda. Many have described her seminal work to be just as relevant today as it was when she penned it over half a century ago. In explaining why she wrote the then-controversial book, Schlafly stated, “I made my decision in the light of what I believe to be the best interests of the America I love, the Republican Party I have served, and the voters to whom I owe a duty to speak the truth.” The late-political commentator Bob Novak described the book as “one of the best-written, most interesting, fascinating pieces of political advocacy that I had ever read in my life.” The book proved instrumental in leading to Barry Goldwater’s nomination at the 1964 Republican convention and launching the modern day conservative movement. Schlafly went on to write 26 other books — many of which she had to write after 10pm when her children were asleep. During the 1960s and early 1970s, Schlafly began the formation of her “Eagle” brand — devoted to inspiring conservatives across the nation to get involved and fight for conservative principles. Today, her organization touts more than 25,000 members. Schlafly is perhaps best known for launching the pro-family movement, which began with her decade-long crusade against the agenda of radical feminists and their efforts to push the so-called Equal Rights Amendment. The ERA had passed Congress in 1972 as part of a new wave of feminism and had been sent to the States for ratification. Because of Schlafly’s efforts, it ultimately fell three states short of being added to the Constitution. President Ronald Reagan described Schlafly’s campaign against ERA as “brilliant” and praised her work as “an example to all those who would struggle for an America that is prosperous and free.” The underdog campaign began with a group of just 100 women from 30 states whom Schlafly gathered together on a riverboat in St. Louis. While the riverboat traveled along the Mississippi River, Schlafly climbed onto its stage and laid out her plan to stop the ERA. She was joined on stage by a friend who sang one of Schlafly’s favorite songs, “Stout-Hearted Men,” as Schlafly urged her female followers to similarly be stout-hearted in their fight against “all the powers that be.” At the time she began the fight, “we had everybody against us: three presidents, three first ladies, all of Congress, every governor, the media, Hollywood — and we beat them all,” Schlafly later explained. “We proved [that] the grassroots can win if they get together and make up their mind to do it,” Schlafly said. “The grassroots can rise up and defeat all the powers that be.” In 1976, Schlafly went to work to transform the Republican Party into the pro-life Party. She succeeded in putting a pro-life plank in every Republican Party Platform adopted at every RNC since then. In a 2014 interview, Stephen K. Bannon asked the 89-year-old Schlafly where she gets her energy from. Her response? “You only live once.” Schlafly’s last great political battle, which she won, was pushing for the Republican presidential nomination of Donald J. Trump, whom she saw as America’s last hope. Schlafly, who described Trump as the “only hope to defeat the Kingmakers,” became one of his earliest and most influential endorsements. With Schlafly’s backing, Trump went on to win more votes than any Republican nominee in U.S. history. Appropriately, her final act of devotion to the country she loved was the publication of a new book, set for release this Tuesday, titled “The Conservative Case for Trump.” In it, Schlafly lays out what is at stake in this election if conservatives do not mobilize to propel Trump to the Oval Office. Schlafly has said that this election represents America’s last chance, explaining that if Trump does not win and mass immigration is not stopped, “we’re not going to be America anymore.” Interestingly, while Trump is performing within historical norms for Republican nominees amongst black and Hispanic voters, he is currently lagging with white voters. In particular, he is underperforming with women and college-educated whites, who have the financial means to remove themselves from the effects of mass migration and trade globalization that have provided the nation with a servant class at the expense of a middle class. If these voters were to install Hillary Clinton in the White House, with her support for trade and immigration policies that would dissolve national sovereignty, it could forever extinguish Schlafly’s dream of preserving the nation she loved. Above all, Schlafly was an American woman and patriot of a bygone era. A Daughter of the American Revolution, Schlafly did not hide her fierce love of country, its history, and its citizens. She never cowered from a fight to defend her nation — no matter whom she had to take on in the process. As the then 91-year old Schlafly passionately told Breitbart last year, “I’m for America [slams hand on desk for emphasis] and America first [slams hand on desk again].” In a 2009 address, Schlafly spoke directly to young audience members about what she viewed as her legacy. “What you learn from my life is, first of all, that anybody can be a leader. You can be a leader. I wasn’t born that way — I developed it, I worked at it. And also that the grassroots can organize, and take on all the powers that be and defeat them. That is the lesson.” “Remember, those that wait upon the Lord will rise up with wings like eagles and they will run and not be weary. And don’t you ever be weary,” Schlafly told her captive audience, “Because the battle goes on, year after year, and we need all of you young people to join us in the battle.”

Agreed!  It’s been said that if you don’t stand for something, you’ll buy into anything.  Phyllis Schlafly stood for something.  And if you missed it the first time, she was for “America first.”  How great is that?!?  Phyllis was more than just a hero to me.  She was an inspiration.  And, having grown up in West St. Louis County myself, this loss is personal.  America has lost a true guardian for what makes America great.  Thank you for unequaled service to our country, Phyllis.  R.I.P.

Limbaugh: Trump Used Cruz to Pull Off GOP Unity

Thursday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the speech given a night earlier by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in Cleveland at the Republican National Convention. Limbaugh argued that Trump knew what Cruz was going to say, and thus pulled off a “masterful move” in trying to achieve party unity. “One of the crucial things here that we have now learned about this is that Trump knew what Cruz was gonna say. Right? That story has been reported, that Cruz’s speech was submitted. Cruz has said that the Trump people knew what he was gonna say. The Trump people say that they knew what Cruz was gonna say. And everybody involved let it happen. So what is the end result of this? There are two overwhelming, inarguable results from this. Number one, we’re gonna have a ratings bonanza tonight. And number two, we may be seeing the actual first threads of unity build behind Donald Trump because of this. And it could well be that Trump has pulled off a masterful move letting all this happen. I think that the argument that he may have done that is sort of rubber-stamped by the fact that he walked in to that convention hall at the exact moment that he knew Cruz was gonna be unloaded on by the audience. He walked into that convention hall last night to his box at the exact moment that it was gonna become, it did become clear to everybody that Cruz was not gonna endorse. Now, the key to all this is what has been reported, that everybody involved knew what Cruz was gonna say and thus everybody knew that Cruz was not gonna endorse. Now, I have warned everybody time and time again, you cannot judge, analyze, watch this convention through the regular political prism. In this case, what I mean by that is in a normal convention, that speech would never been allowed. Ted Cruz, even if he had been invited to give that speech and had submitted that speech to the campaign, and the campaign had seen that speech and discovered that there wasn’t gonna be an endorsement. And, in fact, not only was there not gonna be an endorsement, there was gonna be something maybe even worse, and that was an intimation from Ted Cruz that he might not vote for Donald Trump. There is no other candidate that would allow that speech to be made. There’s no other candidate that would allow that type of person, that situation, Cruz, to even appear at the convention. But Trump did. The Trump campaign — and look, I’m basing all this, just to be clear again, on the fact that everybody’s reporting that everybody knew what Cruz was gonna say, and they let it happen. And I’m telling you, no way that happens at a George Bush convention, a Bill Clinton convention, a Hillary Clinton convention. You think the Clintons are gonna allow Bernie Sanders to go up there and say something without knowing word-for-word what he was gonna say? It would never, ever happen. And if Bernie Sanders was gonna go out there and not endorse Hillary and be ambiguous about it, you think Hillary’s gonna let him go out there? There is no way. They’ll have Elizabeth Warren hijack him on the way to the convention hall and take him to a Burger King or something and keep him tied up for a couple hours so he can never get there. It would never happen. But it did happen last night. So now you’ve got all these analysts trying to figure this out and proclaim the ultimate meaning, and the conventional wisdom is that Cruz is toast, he has just ended his career. Dr. Krauthammer said it perhaps in the most creative way. Dr. Krauthammer said: “It was the longest suicide note I have ever read.” Is that not good? (laughing) The longest suicide note I’ve ever read. Here’s the point, again. Because of that last night, look at all the unity now that is starting to occur for Trump. Look at all the people, including some of the Never Trumpers now coming to Trump’s defense. Maybe not coming to Trump’s defense, they are unifying with Trump against Cruz. You have some Never Trumpers who are applauding Cruz, but it’s a minimal number. He does have his supporters out there. And a lot of his supporters are in the Drive-By Media.

Conservatives Fight to Un-Seat Colorado’s #NeverTrump Delegates

A coalition of Colorado conservatives is banding together to unseat their state’s delegation to the Republican National Convention. As a #NeverTrump plot based in Colorado seeks to stop Trump from winning on the first ballot, Trump and Ted Cruz supporters are uniting to un-seat the 37 pro-Cruz delegates who earned tickets to Cleveland after a caucus system that shut out presidential voting by regular citizens. Trump is heading to Colorado Friday to speak at the Western Conservative Summit. Breitbart News has learned that activists have filed a formal challenge to the Republican National Convention to contest all 37 Colorado at-large delegates and alternates, including 34 who were elected, hoping to fill those seats with new people, including four of the contestants. The challenge is based on the massive ballot errors and inconsistencies that threw the Colorado caucus into chaos and even prompted the chairwoman of the Boulder County GOP to say that the caucus might need to be done over. #NeverTrump supporter Marilyn Marks, who is representing the contestants, told Breitbart News that a hearing will be held in Cleveland to determine whether Colorado will be un-seated. “We got a two and a half page response from the Committee just a couple hours ago,” Marks said, citing a response from the Committee on Contest within the Republican National Convention, which she does not yet have permission to release. Marks quoted the response as saying, “The manner in which the CRC selected its at-large delegates and alternates is hardly a model of excellence…The Committee has serious concerns about the chosen balloting processes…” “They upheld the election, saying there was insufficient evidence of material errors that would affect the outcome of the election,” Marks said. “They absolutely left the door open for an appeal. We will file an appeal.” “There is a tentative time set for a hearing on July 10 in Cleveland, which is a Sunday, and we are confident that we have more than sufficient evidence of material errors that did affect the outcome of the election. We look forward to presenting that to the Committee at the hearing,” Marks said. “I am not a contestant here. We have two Trump supporters, two Cruz supporters…I am personally a #NeverTrump person. However, as you know, the election process was unfair, illegal, and didn’t comply with the rules. Even though I am a NeverTrump person, everyone has a right to a fair process,” Marks added.

Indeed…  Definitely something to keep an eye on..
