It’s loud and clear where the dems stand regarding Israel and God. Well, it should be a given that a great many of the dems are not God fearing people, and as expected they want to reject God in their platform…but they are rejecting the STate of Israel and the Capital Jerusalem. The GOP have ALWAYS supported Israel, so Ms. Whatshername (who is Jewish by the way) you’d think would be a STAUNCH supporter of the State of Israel and Capital Jerusalem. We conservative Christians support Israel, and that just doesn’t jive with the Dems very much now does it? So it’s written off as “Political Football”. Hey Debbie…your Alinsky Rules for Radicals aren’t working anymore, especially in this day in age of technology, citizen journalism, taking the truth to the WEB and the “News” networks to task. We get the truth out there, when the lame stream media won’t!
Tonight, the Democratic National Committee suspended the rules of the convention and inserted language regarding God and the State of Israel back to its platform. They had to vote three times to do it – and they had to lie to deem it passed, even though it was clear that the measure did not pass a voice vote in the chamber. The original 2012 Democratic Party platform had excised all mention of God and Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.
Governor Ted Strickland of Ohio made the motion to change the platform:
This summer, I was proud to serve this party as the platform drafting committee chair. I came before you today to discuss the two important matters related to our party’s national platform. As an ordained United Methodist Minister, I am here to attest and affirm that our faith and belief in God is central to the American story and informs the value we have expressed in our party’s platform. In addition, President Obama recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and our party’s platform should as well. Mr. Chairman, I have submitted my amendment in writing and I believe it is being projected on the screen for the delegates to see. I move adoption of the amendment as submitted and shown to the delegates.
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, the head of the Democratic National Convention, got up and asked for a two-thirds vote on the amendments to the platform. He took a voice vote, with people stating aloud “aye” and “nay.”
The first time, he couldn’t determine if two-thirds of the voters had said “aye”; a loud “no” vote was heard. He asked for a second vote.
