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.
ANOTHER PHONY? Sen. Josh Hawley Does Nothing to Oppose Big Tech Visa Giveaway for Indian Nationals
Hawley’s silence is deafening.
Yesterday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) was able to pass S. 386 with unanimous consent in the Senate. The legislation is a green card giveaway lobbied for by Big Tech that will flood America with cheap Indian labor and displace native workers.
Lee has been exposed as a lawmaker who is in the back pocket of Silicon Valley monopolists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution:

While it is expected that Lee would completely sell America out, the silence from his colleagues who have claimed to vehemently oppose Big Tech has been far more suspicious. The unwillingness of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) to oppose the measure has caused him to lose credibility among the populist “America First” base.
.@HawleyMO built his entire reputation as the Republican who wants to take on big tech. He couldn't even must up an objection against a bill that gives them a mass amount of cheap labor. https://t.co/nzhHwXtIir

It's been a day and @HawleyMO still hasn't said anything about S. 386. Next time he says he's fighting against Big Tech, don't believe him

Big League Politics reported on how not one GOP senator had the courage to offer opposition to Lee’s big government giveaway to third-world foreigners at the behest of tech corporations who hate free speech:
Utah Senator Mike Lee succeeded in passing legislation in the Senate that would eliminate per-country-caps on recipients of H-1B visas on Wednesday, a policy change that would effectively monopolize the visa system for nationals of large countries such as India.
The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act has been called the greatest corporate welfare program for Big Tech in recent memory. Lee has persistently sought to pass the corporate giveaway, with previous attempts to eliminate per-country-caps being blocked by Democrat Dick Durbin and Republican Rick Scott. Neither Senator objected to the unanimous passage of the modified S386 legislation on Wednesday afternoon.
Big Tech monopolies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft have fervently lobbied in favor of eliminating per-country caps, seeking to replace their American workforces with de facto indentured workers who accept lower wages and worse working conditions. The pervasive use of the H-1B visa in the American technology industry has displaced countless American workers from their careers.
Lee’s giveaway doesn’t specifically raise annual H-1B visa rates, although an increase in numbers of visa workers would be a likely consequence of its enactment. It’s expected that the program will be dominated by Indian nationals in the event that Lee’s HR1044/S386 is signed into law, providing massive corporations with a considerable labor pool willing to work for less in return for an American visa.
The legislation was most recently updated with a provision blocking Chinese nationals from using the H-1B program. This provision appears to have been instrumental in securing its passage through the Senate.
It appears that Hawley is attempting to co-opt President Trump’s movement without offering much of anything in terms of real substance.
