Trump pleases congressional Republicans with convention speech


Congressional Republicans were largely impressed with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s speech Thursday as he formally accepted the nomination and closed the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

“He covered a lot of ground and did it very well,” said Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais, calling it a good general election message.
Arizona Rep. Trent Franks said it was the best he’s ever heard Trump.
“I sincerely believe his speech tonight will appeal to middle America and propel him to the White House,” he said.
In that vein, he checked all the boxes, Florida Rep. John L. Mica said.
“He covered the working class — a lot of emphasis on women and security and children, the safety of their children in our streets,” he said. “Again I think reaching out to the gay community, and he covered all of them right down to the que.”
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, one of Trump’s earliest and strongest supporters, said he was thrilled to hear the business mogul so willing to take on the business and party establishment on issues of immigration and the middle class.
“That was stunning,” he said. “I can’t remember seeing a politician do something like that.”
Texas Rep. Pete Sessions was impressed with Trump’s message of law and order.
“Hit the points that we need to to make our country better but the confidence that he has could transcend itself to the American people,” he said. “We must face the reality that in a competitive world that the rule of law and following the laws of this country can bring us back to where need to be.”
It was a long speech, but Trump hit on a lot of good points, Utah Rep. Rob Bishops said. “What I hope is he was able to show that he had some specific ideas and that … people could relate to him as a person,” he said.
“I think he was successful in that.”
One thing that concerned Bishop is that Trump didn’t touch on many policies that impact the western part of the country, like water and land issues. However, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, the vice presidential nominee, understands those issues, the House Natural Resources Committee chairman added.
Bishop was not sitting with the Utah delegation during Trump’s speech so he didn’t know how they reacted compared to their cheers during Cruz’s speech Wednesday night. But he said that not all of the delegates from Utah are staunch Cruz supporters.
“Let’s face it, we’re officially for Cruz but there were a lot of [Marco] Rubio and other Rubio people that were in that group,” Bishop said, noting he was initially a Rubio supporter.
New Mexico Rep. Steve Pearce suggested that Trump ended the convention having accomplished his goal of unifying the party.
“We came out strong last night — Ted misjudged the audience — but that just solidified support today even more,” he said.
Mica agreed that Trump has seemed to grow his following. “We started with 17 and [now] down to one and some are still throwing their toys out at the playpen, but it’s interesting. It just seems to strengthen him.”
Having attended the Republican conventions since the 1960s, Mica said with confidence, “This isn’t a regular Republican group here.”
“This is more of a movement [Trump] started and it’s spread unlike anyone could predict,” he added. “And I think he laid the groundwork to go after labor, to go after a whole host of people … I mean he reached out right for Bernie Sanders’ people tonight, and he’ll probably get a lot of em.”
Florida Rep. Ted Yoho, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said he likes that Trump is a political outsider. Trump’s speech was “outstanding,” as he was “clear and concise” about what he plans to do if elected, he said.
“I think you’re gonna see pretty much everybody but Ted Cruz endorse — him and John Kasich,” Yoho said. “Which is a shame.”
Some members of Congress, such as South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford, are also unlikely to endorse Trump. Sanford said he was leaving Cleveland with the same reservations about Trump he had when he arrived.
“This is gonna be a larger tug of war that was not gonna get resolved in the four days of this convention,” Sanford said. “Frankly it ain’t gonna get resolved between here and November.”
That tug of war has the populist wing pulling the party in one direction and the principled conservatives pulling it in the other, he said.
Sandford explained his personal dilemma this way: “You know if you’ve spent your life working on debt, deficit and government spending, and you have someone who says we’re not going to touch entitlements, you don’t know how quite how you get there.”
“You come from a place like Charleston, where imports and exports are absolutely vital and represent about a third of the American economy, and you begin to talk about some of these things that are sort of quasi-protectionist in nature, it gives you pause,” he added.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
