About Day 2 at the Democrat Convention *Open Thread*

by

 


And now onto day two, last night at the Democrat Convention:

The lineup for Day Two involves people vital to criminal justice and gun violence reform organizations, including Mothers of the Movement to close out the night. The group consists of the mothers of black people killed by gun violence, including those of Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin.

Other speakers include former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, actress Lena Dunham and former U.S. attorney Eric Holder.

Seriously, Eric Holder? Not surprisingly the Dems love Obama’s former Attorney General. They love that he turned the DOJ into a political arm of the White House. Other Administrations have tried but none succeeded as well as the Holder/Obama team.

Endorsing Hillary the Corrupt seems in line with his total lack of integrity or respect for the law. His frequent playing of the race card only adds to my loathing. Seems that once some AA become a part of the government and achieve what others can only dream of they cannot forgive the racist country that elevated them. Holder was a disgrace as an AG and it seems only fitting he would crawl out from under his rock to endorse a woman that would have been indicted were her name anything but Clinton.

The key political speaker of the night will be former President Bill Clinton, who could very possibly be the first-ever first gentleman in U.S. history. Bill Clinton is anything but a gentleman. Something else Historic from the left.

Big surprise – a man endorses his wife. She wasn’t worth remaining faithful to but she is worth endorsing. But what the hay, unfaithfulness is quite the trend this election season.

We expected a good speech from Bill Clinton because talk is one of the things he does best. According to Guy Benson at Townhall the speech was: Folksy, Impeached President Endorses Scandal-Plagued, Disliked Wife

Again according to Benson: “Clinton painted a portrait of a technocratic workhorse (committees! task forces!) who genuinely cares about people, and has channeled those sentiments into a lifetime of tireless public service. ” Bubba also tried to make her more human by talking about their early life together and about her as a mother. The problem with that is the thought always in the back of everyone’s mind about his serial adulteries. He may have been able to rescue Obama back in 2012 – I find it doubtful he can do the same for his wife. Obama was liked, she is not. But Trump is doing everything he can to help her so it may all work out well.

I’m not sure how much the Star power of Lena Dunham will do for Hillary. But the left does seem to like it’s nasty skanks and Dunham certainly is that. So I guess she’s there to get Hillary the skanky female vote. She’s most famous for taking off her clothes at the drop of a hat no matter how much people beg her not to. At least she’s a celebrity from this decade unlike Trump and his buddy Scott Baio aka Chacci.

Meanwhile Sanders loyalists warn of party split after Clinton victory so it appears the Dems ain’t got that whole unity thing under control yet.

182596_600.jpg“I suspect we are witnessing an event that will fundamentally change American politics,” said Cory James, 22, a college student from Flint, Michigan, who expects the Democratic Party to break apart over Clinton’s victory.

Many on the right believe that the nomination of Donald Trump has “fundamentally” changed the Republican Party and many believe that the party will break apart.

Honestly I don’t expect that the Democrat Party or the Republican Party will break apart over the nominations of these two repulsive people. I do think their size and strength will diminish and something will rise to challenge their place(s). What that might be I haven’t  a clue. I know that with the right losing women and minority voters and the left evidently losing young voters the status is about to be unquoed.

Meanwhile over at the crazy corrupt cable station, MSNBC, as opposed to the merely corrupt cable stations Rachel Maddow has her knickers knotted because Bill Clinton mentioned marriage. MSNBC seems to grow loonier by the day.  MSNBC Touts ‘Profound’ BLM Mothers; Trashed Pat Smith for Having ‘Ruined’ RNC. You have to wonder sometimes if having an agenda is enough of an excuse for being just plain detestable.

Democratic Party Officially Nominates Hillary Clinton. You have to wonder if they realize that in doing so they have tarnished their brand for at least a generation. You may wonder if they care. If you can nominate a woman who escaped getting indicted only because POTUS kept that from happening then you don’t much care about honesty, decency, the law or even how this looks to your own voters. It was a pure power play and it worked.

Ms. Clinton will accept the nomination Thursday night. And it will be official. And it will be historic. And repulsive that this corrupt woman is nominated and may well become the next president. How very, very sad.

It will then be official – Trump vs Clinton for POTUS.

    Excellent recap, Marge – including Rachel having a fit that a straight person would dare use the term, “marriage,” even though she can get “married” her own damn self. She is a lunatic. Then again, she is a Dem. I repeat myself. AHAHA. Ahem.

    Meanwhile, now Bernie is planning on leaving th Dem. Party. As Piper pointed out, isn’t he an Independent already? Seems to me he staged a coup of the Dem. nominating process for his own self-aggrandizement and to make something of his most unremarkable career. That young people were so obliging is the BIGGEST shocker, except they want all their free stuff. Idiots.

    Wow. This back surgery seems to have removed some of my filters. 🙂

    Anyway – thanks for this!

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I’m with you in the Bernie says he’s leaving the Dem party that he doesn’t belong to jawdropper.

      I hadn’t thought much about it until Piper brought it up because every Independent I’ve ever heard about is just a Democrat with the letter “I” after their name.

      His supporters are justifiably angry. He did betray them.

  2. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Here’s some disturbing news of the day. Hinckley is abt to be released because his psychosis and all is in remission. Um, this man tried to assassinate a US President. I don’t give a damn if he is all better. He should never see the light of day (including being able to make “unsupervised visits” home to mother). Switch him over to a prison then: http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/289404-attempted-reagan-assassin-released-from-mental-hospital-after

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I heartily agree. He should NEVER be released. He sought to kill a President – once he would have been hung just for the attempt.

      And truth be told I don’t exactly trust the Mental Health people. They screw up far too often and innocent people pay the price.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        You ain’t only kidding abt mental health providers screwing up often enough. Shudder…

        And you are SO right abt someone attempting to assassinate the POTUS. It is insane that this judge is letting him go. Mind bogglingly stupid and irrational, if you ask me…

  3. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    I just saw the most disturbing story. The jihadist who murdered the priest and tried to kill the nun was under POLICE SUPERVISION and had a bracelet that they allowed him to turn off several hrs a day (WTH???). Wanna guess when he carried out this terror attack? Yeah – when his bracelet was off: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/07/26/attacker-who-murdered-catholic-priest-under-police-supervision-wore-monitoring-bracelet.html

    The authorities bear responsibility for allowing political correctness to blind them to this man intent upon becoming a jihadi. And now a life is lost and others changed forever. This blindness to reality is insane.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      This kind of irresponsible “protection” of the public is what Obama, Clinton and Trump will bring to this country. Obama is trying now, Hillary will to please her base and Trump will because – oh who the hell knows why Trump does anything. Right now he’s all on board for raising the minimum wage.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        YES – that is precisely what they will do. What the hell they were ever thinking in giving this murderous jihadist some free time each day is beyond me (thank heavens – as in, I am glad I can’t understand such bizarre “logic”)…

        Oh, yeah – I saw that this morning abt Trump. One more Dem. principle he wants to impose after claiming otherwise AND putting Reps down in the process. WOW.

        And along those lines, while TRUMP may not “help out” much according to reports – because he is a Dem – REPUBLICANS do give to charity and “help out” a good bit. They should be pissed off at him, but they will swallow this and justify why it really is a good idea…

    • mcnorman Says:

      Given the opportunity, the criminal will usually take it. This is so disturbing.

  4. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Gee – who could have seen THIS coming? Oh, wait – ALL of us. This is what happens when people cave to mob rule – they make emotional decisions and not ones based in fact: http://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2016/07/27/breaking-all-charges-dropped-in-freddie-gray-case-n2198715

    Now. Time for Mosby to be disbarred.

    Aide: Trump ‘will not be releasing’ taxes

    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/289400-aide-trump-will-not-be-releasing-taxes

    Of course he won’t. If he didn’t before he was nominated why would he do it now?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      And it is telling indeed that he was allowed to get away with this. Republicans would have screamed BLOODY MURDER had a Dem done the same, but yet – just like Obama and his transcripts – when it came to Trump, he was allowed to get away with everything. Boggles the mind.

    My 2 cents for today. I reading more and more that polls are being conducted ‘online’ – who’s voting and from what country – the chances that another election being gamed by overseas non-citizens – WCPGW.

    Bernie, Mr. Money Grows on Trees in My Backyard, as far as I can see basically used the democrat party for its money and free publicity. Now that the queen has been coronated he can go back to being an Independent. Thankfully they didn’t supply him with a private jet to fly around the country campaigning. Also, his supporters were never going to vote for Hillary or for that matter anything else.

    As much as I dislike the queen, there’s something nasty and suspicious about Bernie’s run. Yesterday, I asked my staunch democrat friend why Bernie ran on the dem. ticket – replied that Bernie asked the DNC and was given permission to do so which is raising my suspicion level to red – did the dem. leaders and elite REALLY want Hillary?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I don’t think they wanted Hillary at all. I think they wanted a Biden/Warren ticket. They knew that any decent candidate would blow Hillary out of the water. And then the GOP gave them the gift of Trump. Still difficult because Clinton is neither liked or trusted. But with so many disliking Trump and/or thinking he’s just plain nuts she now has a decent chance. JMO

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        It is telling, isn’t it? And knowing now that the DNC gave Sanders permission is also telling. I think they used him to push the Party even further left, which he did. So there is that.

        But yeah – telling that the DNC allowed this in the first place.

  11. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Once again, Trump opens his mouth and says something stupid abt Russia, and is, according to Clinton’s camp, encouraging Russia to engage in cyber attacks against this country: http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/289443-clinton-camp-trumps-russia-remarks-a-bridge-too-far

    Only Miles From Democrat Convention, Kermit Gosnell’s Clinic Brings Abortion Industry Horrors to Forefront

    “Real women and babies lost their lives—because the Pennsylvania Department of State and the Department of Health chose to look the other way,” he said in a recent interview. “Whether you’re pro-life or pro-choice, can’t we at least agree that women deserve better?”

    http://dailysignal.com/2016/07/26/only-miles-from-democrat-convention-kermit-gosnells-clinic-brings-abortion-industry-horrors-to-forefront/

    And the MSM mostly says, “Gosnell, what Gosnell?”

    • mcnorman Says:

      BLM don’t really matter that much as little was done to stop Gosnell and his antics…he wreaked havoc on Philadelphia’s black women.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        I saw the image below and found wisdom on a tee shirt. Add to that the fact that blacks are allowing Planned Parenthood and other abortionists to kill their babies at an astonishing rate. The left is still the enemy of the black people – the black people refuse to see it and thus are being decimated. Members of their own community, the race industry scum lie to them and use them.

        The black community is being destroyed by abortion, by the destruction of their family groups and by an education system that helps to keep them down.

        BLM was founded on a lie, Hands up – don’t shoot, and perpetuated by a media and the rest of the left in order to ensure their votes and support. They are supporting those that seek to destroy them. And many are too ignorant, or too power hungry to notice or care.

  13. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    I am not surprised that one of the Bushes has come out in support of Johnson/Weld: http://www.aol.com/article/2016/07/27/marvin-bush-endorses-gary-johnson/21440156/

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I won’t be surprised if more of them do. Most have all ready said they won’t support or vote for Trump.
