Scott talks about his life story about how he lived with his mom and his grandmother in a two-bedroom home after his parents divorced. He said he thought he had to use football to succeed and did not concentrate on his academics and failed out. He says even while he was failing the 9th grade, his mom told him, after working 16 hours a day, to shoot for the moon because if you fail you will be among the stars. He tells the story of his mentor, a Chick-fil-A operator John Moniz. . .
Donald Trump Jr. wants to speak about the great American story. He says just a few months ago, we were seeing the American Dream become a reality for more Americans. He blames Joe Biden for calling Trump a racist and a xenophobe for his China travel ban. He says it is madness that Biden is trying to shut down the country. He says Biden’s economic platform seems designed to crush the working man and woman. He rips “Beijing Biden” for supporting NAFTA, TPP. He says China wants Biden to win while Biden wants to bring in more illegal immigrants to take jobs from America citizens. He says this will drive wages down from low-income Americans who were getting wage increases for the first time in modern history. He says Trump’s policies have been like rocket fuel for the economy while Biden, the “Loch Ness Monster of the Swamp” that has been lurking around for decades and sticks his head up every now and then to run for president, wants to take money out of your pocket for Swamp dwellers.

Parkland Father at GOP Convention: Donald Trump Key to School Safety
By Breitbart. Parkland father Andrew Pollack spoke during the opening night of the Republican National Convention and stressed that President Donald Trump is key to school safety.
Pollack’s daughter Meadow was killed in the February 14, 2018, attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that took the lives of 17 innocents.
Speaking at the convention, he stressed that President Trump took school safety seriously from the start.
Pollack said he was invited to the White House after the Parkland attack and that President Trump took the time to listen as Pollack shared his concerns. He heard Pollack talk of how “far-left Democrats in … [the] school district made this shooting possible because they implemented something they called ‘restorative justice.’ This policy — which really just blames teachers for student failures — puts kids and teachers at risk and makes shootings more likely.”
He stressed that President Trump went further than simply listening, he actually “took action.” He did this by doing away with Obama administration guidelines for the “restorative justice” approach and by forming a commission that could suggest solutions.
