The Democrat Convention has started… under the cloud of a House Investigation into stimulus funds being given to leftist news outlet MSNBC (NBC and parent company GE) for Obama’s ‘Green Jobs’ Initiative Ads; the national debt clock clicked over to $16 Trillion just an hour before the DNC Convention began… which certainly explains why they have no debt clock up at the event like the GOP had; and the jobs report to be released just hours after President Obama’s speech on Thursday is expected to be negative… again.
Also Just released: The Dems have taken out any and all references to Israel from their platform. The platform used to say that Israel was America’s (the Dems) strongest ally… The designation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, has also been removed. Everyone interviewed about the changes on Israel said the party went along with President Obama’s lead and beliefs. The word ‘God’ also no longer appears anywhere in the Democrat platform. Wake up Americans and wake up American Jews!

The 2012 Democratic National Convention just kicked off in Charlotte, North Carolina where the party will nominate President Barack Obama and Vice President Biden for President and Vice President candidates.
I waited until the last minute to post this hoping the DNC would post a final or at least comprehensive schedule… they never did. Perhaps it is because they are still making changes???
The three-day convention is expected to draw tens of thousands of people including nearly 6,000 delegates from across the country. Performers include the Foo Fighters, Mary J. Blige and Marc Anthony.
During the first two days at the Time Warner Cable Arena, First Lady Michelle Obama, Keynote Speaker and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and former President Bill Clinton are expected to speak. DJ Cassidy, Ledisi, Amber Riley, former American Idol contestant Jessica Sanchez and Branford Marsalis will also take the stage. The Dems have been much less forthcoming than the Republicans as to details about their convention.
About 15,000 people are expected on the first two days, according to the convention’s website.
High-profile speakers include Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren.
On Thursday, Obama will accept the nomination at the Bank of America Stadium which has capacity to seat over 73,000 people. Marc Anthony will sing the National Anthem and other musicians performing are the Foo Fighters, Mary J. Blige, Earth Wind and Fire, James Taylor, Delta Rae and Inspire the Fire.
Live Streaming will be available on the Democratic National Convention 2012 website www.demconvention.com/live in English and Spanish.
Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney accepted his party’s nomination Thursday night amid heavy fanfare but people wonder if the Democrat’s big party will diminish his momentum. "Whatever there is, I think we can blunt that pretty quickly," an official with President Obama’s campaign told CNN.
Most politicos from both parties are saying that while the Republican National Convention was overall positive, with only intermittent barbs at President Obama, that they expect the Democratic convention to be much more negative and full of attacks on Romney and Ryan.

Three artists need 15 tons of sand to create an Obama sand sculpture ahead of the DNC
A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte Saturday afternoon damaged the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture bust of President Obama — an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention.
Workers were trying Saturday afternoon to reform the base of the sculpture, built from sand brought in from Myrtle Beach, S.C., pounding and smoothing out the sand that had washed off the facade of the waist-up rendering of the chief executive.
The sand sculpture was protected from above, and Mr. Obama’s face didn’t see too much damage. But the storm was so strong that its heavy winds blew the rain sideways, pelting the president’s right side and leaving the sand pockmarked and completely erasing his right elbow.
Don’t count on too much truth from MSNBC or the mainstream media about the Democrat National Convention… During the Republican National Convention MSNBC purposely cut away almost every time there was a person of color speaking and away from many of the women to make it look like the GOP was nothing but white men and to support Democrat fake war on women concept.
