Why should Melania's plagiarism surprise us? I am sure Trump had control over every word she spoke and lifted those parts from Michelle's Obama's DNC speech without Melania's knowledge -- just a hunch. That would be no surprise, indeed. In fact, Trump lifted paragraphs of the book on his Trump Institute alleged corporate fraud business venture from "Real Estate Mastery System" published by Success Magazine linked here from which he bilked millions of bucks from unsuspecting eyes of those who would read about his "course" and sign up. Moreover, I will not go into the infamous detail of Trump University now under investigation for fraud by the New York Attorney General's office. Google it and read about that.
The nearly entire first night of the the Republican National Convention was FILLED with discord, spectacle and lies. Fact check every single speaker ESPECIALLY the famous like the histrionic explosive Rudy Giuliani and even those not famous who tragically suffered loss of their loved ones in Benghazi like Pat Smith. Her speech eviscerated Hillary unjustifiably. As much as I sympathize with Pat Smith's heartache it does NOT give her the right to tell untruths about Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton was NOT I repeat NOT responsible for her son's death. How much will these appellations of "Crooked Hillary" that are FALSE stick in the minds of those who question nothing? We are talking about the American presidency and the nominee of one major Party, a man who will control all the weapons of annihilation. I suggest one question everything spewed from the filled-with-mendacity speakers at the Republican Convention who utter at best half truths at worst downright lies of nearly all they say especially about Hillary Clinton and the president. Question the content of all those who will speak in the days to come.
The Republican Legislative Committee for the Investigation of Benghazi did multiple investigations of Secretary Clinton on Benghazi and found NOTHING on which to indict her. As much as we sympathize with Pat Smith's loss of her son it cannot be a justification to erroneously place the blame on an individual who was not at fault for her son's death simply because one cannot accept his fate fighting in a violent nation at secular war as the cause of his death.
In addition, I also link below the story of Melania's plagiarized speech from Huffington Post. Read it and know. Then pass this on to whomever you want. Get the word out that the Republican National Convention speakers fill their verbiage with half baked truths and lies especially about Hillary Clinton and the president! I list one Fact Check example below along with another link about Melania Trump's plagiarism.
The spectacle after Melania's introduction of Trump of his emerging from the mist of white clouds like who? God? This was preposterously staged theater of what should be thought a serious event by the nominee. If a Democrat did that they would be pilloried.
And one more thing illuminated by a blogger: "Jail time for Hillary Clinton?" How about the entire Bush Administration for starting the Iraqi War under the false pretense of WMD that were never found. How many investigations were conducted and how many lives were lost? Feb 2003 I was at Ft Lewis Washington training to go to Iraq." I rest, for now, my case.
Fact-Checking the First Night of the Republican National Convention
by Mark Murray , Alexandra Jaffe, Carrie Dann and Jane C. Timm
CLAIM (Rudy Giuliani): "Hillary Clinton's answer to Congress about the death of these four brave Americans [in Benghazi] because of her failures as Secretary of State was 'what difference at this point does it make?' Watch the video for yourself and see the arrogant disregard for American lives lost unnecessarily. Make up your own mind."
THE FACTS: According to the video of Clinton's congressional testimony, Clinton's "what difference at this point does it make" was over whether the violence in Benghazi was inspired by anti-Islam video or not. "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they'd they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator."
To quote a relative: "The majority of November voters are going to see this fiasco for what it is: a cheap, name-calling, undemocratic melodrama, tawdry and sullied as is the clown with the "Big Brain" that orchestrated it. I am encouraged that the GOP is giving us a huge boost. And unless there is some horrific violence that will get Trump the sympathy vote for a short while, I predict there will be no bump from this charade."
Plagiarized Melania speech.
