North Carolina Democrat Governor Roy Cooper has rejected the request to hold a full Republican National Convention this summer in Charlotte, citing safety concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The people of North Carolina do not know what the status of COVID-19 will be in August, so planning for a scaled-down convention with fewer people, social distancing and face coverings is a necessity,” Cooper wrote in a letter to the Republican National Committee (RNC).
However, Cooper has recently been cheering on the mob behavior of so-called protesters throughout his state despite the fact that they have made a complete mockery of social distancing guidelines.
“Let me be clear about one thing: People are more important than property. Black Lives do Matter,” Cooper wrote on Saturday in a now infamous Tweet.
Republican leadership in the state has criticized Cooper for his lackluster response to widespread rioting, even though he eventually said he would utilize the National Guard to control unruly protesters.
“I’m calling on the governor to fully mobilize the National Guard to make sure these cities and these communities are safe going forward,” Republican state house speaker Tim Moore said. “We’ve now had, if you count Charlotte, three nights of unrest, three nights of looting, three nights of rioting in various cities across the state.”
“The National Guard could have fully been mobilized here ready and been able to deal with these issues as they were unfolding, as opposed to hours and hours late,” he added. “I don’t know how much damage could have been prevented, but I would submit to you that it would be a lot.”
The RNC has given Cooper every chance to comply with their requests. They intend to hold a full convention with 19,000 delegates being seated there and in excess of 50,000 individuals attending the event from Aug. 24-27.
The RNC has demonstrated our commitment to holding a safe and successful convention in Charlotte.

“While we have demonstrated our commitment and acted to ensure a safe convention, to date, we have received no guidance that provides us with any assurances that the Convention can proceed according to the terms of the various participants’ original agreements,” the RNC said.
“Proactively, we have plans in place for temperature checks, testing before and during the Convention, making masks available for those who request one and providing enhanced sanitization of public areas in order to protect the health of attendees and the residents of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County,” they added.
However, if Cooper wants to abuse his power to deny the freedom to assemble for Republicans, there are governors who are willing to step in and take the commerce and revenue that Cooper is denying his state out of spite.
“Florida would love to have the RNC,” said Fla. Gov. Ron Desantis. “Heck, I’m a Republican, it would be good for us to have the DNC in terms of the economic impact.”
“Florida wants to work with you. If you’re a business, if you’re a sports team, if you have some of these events — we want to work with you to get to yes,” DeSantis added.
President Trump has put Gov. Cooper in his sights for attempting to obstruct the RNC:
I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August. Unfortunately, Democrat Governor, @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed…

Cooper’s political games will not stop the 1st Amendment rights of Republicans from being exercised at this national convention, whether it is in his state or elsewhere. The deadline the RNC has given Cooper to acquiesce is Wednesday, or they are expected to find another venue to hold their convention.
PROPHETIC? Fledgling Alabama U.S. Senate Hopeful Tommy Tuberville’s Campaign Bus Goes Up in Flames
This is prophetic considering what is happening with his campaign.
Alabama Republican U.S. Senate contender Tommy Tuberville’s campaign bus went up in flames on Tuesday night, as his campaign sputters amidst a heated competition with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the seat.
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office reported that Tuberville’s campaign bus burst into flames on Interstate 59 while heading northbound. The bus driver was not injured due to the massive fire.
Tuberville was once considered the favorite to beat Sessions, but his campaign is losing steam as the public realizes he is a RINO. President Donald Trump, who has publicly supported Tuberville over Sessions due to his controversial tenure in the administration, has even cancelled a planned Alabama rally in favor of Tuberville, perhaps sensing that he has backed a loser.
Polling from June shows that Sessions is surging against Tuberville, as Alabama voters realize which candidate is the genuine article. Sessions has a longstanding conservative voting record, particularly on the crucial issue of immigration, while Tuberville has no record other than being a mediocre college football coach.
Big League Politics has reported on Tuberville’s weakness as a candidate on the matter of immigration. He has supported flooding the U.S. with foreign labor to squeeze Americans out of well-paying jobs to boost corporate profits:
Football coach and Alabama Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville appeared to endorse the notion of admitting 400,000 Indian visa workers to the United States in remarks made on an Alabama politics podcast in December, claiming that current rates of illegal immigration are the only factor stopping the country from bringing in the large pool of workers.
“We have 400,000 people in India that are educated, well trained… That want to come here. They want to be Americans, they want to get into our system, they can help. 400,000, we can’t let them in, because we’re being overrun by illegal immigration.
IWe need workers, there’s no doubt about that. We need workers to come the right way.”
The use of the H1B program to replace American workers with Indian tech professionals is well documented, and it’s doubtless that allowing 400,000 workers from the world’s second most populous nation to immigrate to America on the premise of their supposed workplace skills would prove devastating to many American tech professionals.
American IT companies are increasingly staffing themselves with a workforce primarily made up of Indian nationals, pushing American workers out of the workforce in exchange for a staff that will work for far lower wages. The H1B program tethers visa workers to their employers, creating what is essentially a system of indentured servitude, where quitting a job jeopardizes a visa worker’s green card prospects.
As seen during recent elections in Virginia, Colorado and North Carolina, voters are realizing that Trump does not necessarily endorse the best and most conservative candidate for office. This trend of voters rejecting Trump’s picks may continue in Alabama on July 14 during the GOP runoff primary election for U.S. Senate.
