RNC SELECTS CLEVELAND TO HOST 2016 CONVENTION

The Republican National Committee officially announced Cleveland, Ohio, as the host city for the Grand Old Party's 2016 Convention.  The RNC plans to hold its convention earlier in the 2016 Presidential election cycle than previous years.

Cleveland won the selection over Dallas, Texas.  Previously, the RNC's Site Selection Committee had narrowed its decision to two cities, Cleveland and Dallas.  

Dallas would have located the convention in a true red state that would be a lock for a Republican Presidential candidate.  So, the RNC may not have gained much with voters by heading to the great state of Texas.

Locating the convention in Cleveland makes absolute sense.  With Ohio as a battleground state for Presidential elections, this will help the RNC advance their messaging to Ohio voters.  Republicans definitely will need Ohio to secure a winner for the White House.

Here is the statement regarding the selection by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus:
"A Cleveland convention offers our party a great steppingstone to the White House in 2016, and I'm encouraged by the committee's recommendation.  The team from Cleveland has gone above and beyond the call of duty and I think they're representative of a city eager to show the country all the fantastic things they have to offer."
"The RNC set a new standard for conventions during this process.  Not only will the convention be held earlier in 2016, but there are also substantial guarantees in place for funding that put us well ahead of previous conventions and will give our nominee the best opportunity to succeed."

JUST SIGN THE BUDGET, TERRY!

What's the big delay for Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe?  For months, the Democrat used Virginia's budget as a hostage to force approval of Medicaid expansion.  Now, a budget approved by both the state Senate and House awaits the Governors signature.

So, what could be holding Terry's pen from the budget?  Could it be pressure from the Obama administration?  Or, is he trying to finagle a way around the budget to expand it on his own accord?  These questions seem to be on the fringe, but are they?

A recent turn of events in the Virginia Senate laid the way for the Republicans to take quick action on the budget.  The sudden retirement of long term, Democrat State Senator Puckett gave the Republicans just enough control in the Senate to approve a budget that would meet approval with the House of Delegates and scuttle Medicaid expansion.

For months now, Governor McAuliffe has delayed a state budget just to ram through Medicaid expansion.  Rather than coming to Richmond to negotiate a budget with the Republicans.  Since February, McAuliffe has been trucking around the Commonwealth using Obama-like tactics to stir up the grassroots left to back expansion.

What has been obvious is the inexperience of Terry McAuliffe.  For the most part, Virginia's Governors have historically assured a budget is in place, so not to negatively impact municipal budgets or risk shutting down the state government.  If a Governor could not get his way with a policy, he would try again the following year.  Yet, McAuliffe is clearly in this dogfight for politics, not for the betterment of the Commonwealth.

So, now that there is a budget on his desk, will he sign it?  He has until Sunday, June 22 to take action.

Here's the options in front of McAuliffe regarding the budget and Medicaid expansion:
  • Sign the budget as is, and call a special session to negotiate expansion this year or wait till the 2015 General Assembly.
  • Amend the budget by re-inserting language to approve expansion.  This amendment would fail with a final vote by the Virginia Senate and House.
  • Ignore the budget, shut down the state government and force a high stakes game of "chicken" with the political right.
  • Sign the budget, ignore the language preventing him from unilaterally approving expansion and use a Executive order authorizing expansion.  This action would trigger legal action from the Republican legislature and no doubt be settled in the courts.
What can YOU do about this?  Call Governor McAuliffe's office and tell him to sign the budget and forget about expansion.  Dial (804)786-2211.  Or, follow this link to send a email directly to the Governor's office:  https://governor.virginia.gov/constituent-services/communicating-with-the-governor/ 

FEDS ATTEMPT TO HOUSE HUNDREDS OF ILLEGALS IN VIRGINIA TOWN

And, you thought the whole border snafu in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas would not hit Virginia?  Well, think again.

Thousands of mostly young illegal aliens have poured into America in the last several weeks.  Primarily due to immigration rhetoric drummed up by the Obama administration and by both parties on Capitol Hill.  Public promises of citizenship via such policies such as the Dream Act, Kids Act and Enlist Act, have ignited a wave of border crossing that has overwhelmed federal border agents, state and local border governments.

With thousands of illegal aliens streaming over the United States Southern border, Obama administration officials are tasked with finding places to keep them.  And, one of the locations is Lawrenceville, Virginia.  A small, rural town in Brunswick County, just 70 miles from Richmond.

Last week Obama administration officials took action to strike a deal to house 500+ illegal immigrants at a defunct college campus in Lawrenceville.  The campus of former St. Paul's College was agreed to serve a location for housing and boarding of mainly young immigrants, aged 11-17 years.  

The Lawrenceville housing plan was necessary according to Barack Obama, '...to ease the humanitarian crisis.'

However, efforts by Congressman Robert Hurt and local officials have slowed the plan.  Concerns over public safety, zoning violations, impact to businesses and other issues, were all cited to put the plan on hold.

Obama officials had made the move in short order without notification to local government.  The deal would have began moving in illegals within a week.  And, a lease agreement would have provided housing for five months with an extension possible for three years.

Many other localities have been targeted for embedding illegals.  The City of Baltimore recently halted a planned shelter by the administration.  Shelters are now being formed on military bases throughout the country to harbor the illegal immigrants.
