Before the Cock Crows You Will Deny Me Three Times...

Last week I went off on the whole GOP establishment power grab at their convention regarding rules for nominating delegates.  It may have been a move to cut off the wacky Paul-bots at the pass, but in doing so it seriously snubbed the true grassroots members and Tea Party activists.

Yesterday, the Democrats - not to be out-done - had to do their own power grab. And it was corrupt Chicago-style politics at it's best/worst.

Backstory… The Democrats removed the mention of God from their platform, and they removed the mention of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel:

Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform. This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform: 
“We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.” 
Now the words “God-given” have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this: 
“We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.”


[the key line removed from the 2008 platform] Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel.

Well, word got out quickly that this had happened, and the powers that been in the upper echelons of the DNC scrambled to get the removed language back into the platform before anyone noticed [see HotAir's post for full details].  Problem is, things didn't go quite as planned.  When they took the matter up for a vote on the main stage of the convention before the delegates, this is what happened:

The look on L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa's face is priceless.  It is OBVIOUS that at least HALF of the party delegates (if not MORE than half) did NOT want the mention of God nor the mention of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel back into the party platform.  But Chicago-style thuggery politics went ahead with the face-saving changes anyway.

CNN (CNN!!!) had this:

And just in case you actually think that President Obama and his administration actually believes that Jerusalem is and should be the capital of Israel, listen to his press spokesman Jim Carney from just this past July:

Given that just a few hours later, President "Lewinsky" was about to walk up to the podium to crow aloud to the nation, I find it prophetic that in front of the whole world the Democratic party brings to fruition the biblical verse: "Before the cock crows you will deny Me three times."

Empty Chair… Empty Suit… Exactly What I thought in 2008 & 2009...

Two days ago I posted about National Empty Chair day, and said I thought this was the best pic to describe "The One":

Then I remembered what I had written about the guy on April 1, 2008:


"The Obamessiah (the Inexperienced Empty-Suit Charlatan)"

And on April 15, 2009:

Given that it's tax day today, I want to express - in 50 words or less - what I have thought and felt about the current occupant of the White House since the first day he appeared on the national scene a year and a half ago:

He's a smug, snobby, arrogant and inexperienced empty-suit charlatan with a narcissistic messiah complex who sprung from and was steeped in the notoriously and perpetually corrupt Chicago Democrat Party political machine, and who brings a militant pro-abortion culture and a radical socialist agenda that will bankrupt and destroy America.  Period.

Don't say I didn't tell yah.  Don't say I didn't warn yah.  :-/

Michelle Malkin called today National Empty Chair Day.  Was so successful she had to open a second post.

Gateway Pundit has a list of some great chairs.

My favorite is this one:
