10:10 PM - ERIC TRUMP MAKES THE CASE FOR HIS FATHER
Eric Trump mocks the commentariat class, given widespread pundit predictions of his father's inevitable political failure.
It's time for a president who has always signed the front of a check, not the back," says Trump of his father, contrasting him with professional politicians such as Hillary Clinton.
Trump says his father ran because he couldn't tolerate any more governmental incompetence, he was "disgusted" with what he had seen over decades.
With rapidly growing debt and expansion of taxes, Trump says only his fathers business acumen can provide he necessary political remedies to prevent an economic collapse.
In 1988, Oprah Winfrey asked Donald Trump if he would ever run for the presidency. He replied, "Only if it got so bad that I had no choice."
"I run my foundation based on the principles my father taught me: honesty, integrity, and values. I expect other charities to be run by the same moral code, not serve as conduit for personal enrichment, not serve as a beacon of corruption and scandal," says Trump, implicitly referring to the Clinton Foundation as a money laundering mechanism for ill-gotten funds obtained through peddling of political influence. "To whom much is given, much will be required."

Cruz spoke of Sergeant Michael Smith, an officer murder by the left-wing Black Lives Matter-aligned terrorist in Dallas. "He protected the very protesters that mocked him because he loved his country and his fellow man. To die by love is to live by it," said Cruz.
"America is an ideal," said Cruz. "Freedom matters... We have no king or queen, we have no dictator. We the people constrain government"
Cruz said the five most beautiful words in the English language are "I want to be free."
Cruz implies that dangerous immigration and refugee policies bringing in Muslims need to be stopped. "[President Barack Obama] brings in ISIS terrorists as refugees," said Cruz.

Ingraham calls out left-wing media, saying that Trump's ascendance is built on going after its operatives. "Do your job!" demands Ingraham, receiving great applause for conventions attendees.
"Let's give the power back to the people! And let's elect Donald Trump President of the United States! God bless you, and God bless America!'
