    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/07/18/rocky-opening-for-gop-convention-as-cruz-forces-clash-with-team-trump.htmlThe Republican convention appears to be facing a rocky opening both inside and outside the arena – inside, from forces loyal to Ted Cruz mulling a procedural fight and outside, from anti-Trump protesters testing the demonstration rules set by the city....

    ...multiple high-level GOP sources in Cleveland told Fox News that officials loyal to Cruz – led by former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah – have been bargaining with the Republican National Committee and Donald Trump campaign over procedural changes...

    ...Those forces want to revise the rules that will reward states with closed primaries -- and for the RNC and Trump camp to allow Cruz’s name to be placed in nomination ...

    ...the Cruz forces have the power to somewhat disrupt the convention over the first two days – albeit with little power to affect the ultimate outcome of Trump receiving the nomination....

    ...One threat the Cruz forces are said to be holding over the heads of the RNC and the Trump campaign is the specter of a large group of delegates – in the hundreds – simply leaving town after Cruz speaks on Wednesday night, exposing the nominee to the prospect of televised images of empty seats ...

    Republican Party Reborn: The Underdogs Become the Champions in Cleveland

    The Republican Party has been liberated from the corrupting forces of globalist special interests. The Republican Party of losers and grifters has been replaced by a new party, rising from the ashes of George W. Bush and John Boehner. This new party has whites, blacks, browns, Asians, and everything else.

    Donald Trump liberated The Republican Party ?
    Could you be specific on the ways in which you believe Trump is doing this?
