“I’m a lifelong Democrat. I’m from Lorain, Ohio, which is a Democrat city in Ohio and I just want to say, after watching the convention tonight on tv, on C-Span here, I am definitely changing my vote to Republican… I’m gonna follow the Republican party now,” the guest said.
When asked why he made the decision to change parties, the caller explained, “It was the heartfelt way they came across to the American people. And I was really touched by the number of times they used the word ‘God.’ They put God into everything and the people on the Democratic side, on their convention acted like they were pushing God right out of it.”
During two separate caucus meetings at the Democratic National Convention last week, the words “under God” were omitted from the Pledge of Allegiance. It happened at the meetings for the Muslim Delegates & Allies Assembly and for an LGBTQ caucus. God was certainly a feature of the RNC’s first day and is expected to be for the entirety of the convention.
The first night of the Republican convention also highlighted support for President Donald Trump that wasn’t just from members of the GOP. In fact, one of the speakers was Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, a lifelong Democrat. But, party aside, Jones said he’s supporting President Trump in November.
“When President Trump took office, he changed everything,” Jones said. “He delivered historic funding to HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and he did it for 10 years, something that has never happened in the history of this country.”
He added, “That gave our HBCUs stability, the chance to grow, and produce the next generation of Black leaders. That’s right, Donald Trump did that. He’s also supported school choice to assure that no child, no matter their race or zip code is left behind. Every child should have access to a quality education.”
The GOP convention will also feature Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ, later in the week. Van Drew famously was a Democrat who spoke out against the impeachment of President Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives. He switched his party affiliation to Republican after the House passed the two impeachment articles charging the President with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
