The Ayes Have It

This just in. 

Most people paying even scant attention know the democrats revealed who they really are as a party, as they expelled any mention of God from the party platform, as well as officially throwing Israel under the bus.

Knowing them as I and other informed conservatives do, they were certain this was just a minor adjustment to their overall, radical platform.

They were clearly taken by surprise at the backlash they received and the firestorm it caused.

They sent out old party hacks, such as Dick Turbin, not to defend the decision, but to dodge and deflect. It didn’t work.

I just witnessed the floor vote at the convention to reinsert God back into the platform. I’m not sure it was also for the Israel flap, but I assume so.

The man at the podium shouted, “All in Favor, say Aye!” Many shouted in the affirmative. He then shouted, “All opposed, say no!” Just as many as the ayes. He then repeated himself, with the same outcome. He tried a third time with the same results.

At this point he had the option to take a floor vote but declined. After some quick whispers to a colleague, he declared, “The ayes have it, measured passed.” Boos then resounded over the floor of the hall.

Watching the man squirming up there at the podium was almost sad. He clearly did not want to be put in this position.

I’m betting, the democrat campaign damage control experts set this up telling this poor sap, whatever happens, the ayes will prevail. There would be no floor vote. They could not take the chance of the no votes winning out.

Now that’s entertainment.

Article One

by: Gary DeMar

You can tell a lot by the motives of someone by looking at how consistent they are. In order to get into the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, you will need an ID. Why can’t Democrat voters be trusted to enter a convention that’s for Democrats? Why would they lie about who they are?

A Democrat official will most likely say that IDs are necessary because of party crashers. Maybe some Republicans, Libertarians, or Independents will try to come in and disrupt the convention. This is a very good argument for the necessity of IDs for the convention. But it leaves a couple of things unanswered.

First, isn’t it a hardship on some people to get an ID? Isn’t this a standard argument sued by Liberals on why it’s unconstitutional improper to ask for an ID at the voting booth? If it’s not a hardship in one place (the convention), then it’s not a hardship in another place (the voting booth).

Second, the very nature of an election is to get your guy elected. Some people are unscrupulous in that they will do anything to ensure their candidate wins. This will mean sabotaging an election by voting multiple times or using the names and addresses of dead people to flood the ballot box with extra votes.

“An ‘anti-voter fraud’ group says it has discovered 30,000 dead folks registered to vote across North Carolina. The group collected the names by comparing death records from the past decade to voter rolls; it says the figure would have been bigger had the group had access to death records in neighboring states.”

While not all these dead voters’ names are implicated in voter fraud, it’s not beyond the realm of possibilities that they could be. Without a proper ID, how would anyone know if a person was using a deceased registered voter as a way to boost the number of votes for one political party over the other? They wouldn’t.

The following is from the Charlotte Observer:

“Mainly, what we’re concerned about is the potential [for fraud],” said project director Jay DeLancy. “Since there is no voter ID law in North Carolina, anybody can walk in and claim to be anyone else.”

Liberals are so intent on blocking voter ID requirements because they know that their fellow-liberals are some of the biggest voter-cheats. They wouldn’t cash a check given to them by someone claiming to be the person the check is made out to, but they’re willing to look the other way for the potential of voter fraud in order put people in office who write checks to keep the wealth distributors in office.

Article Two

by:  at the Blaze

TheBlaze’s Benny Johnson contributed to this post.

While most Americans — those who believe they are not better off now than they were four years ago — would likely say that the most important issue to them this election season is the economy, others have different priorities in mind. During the Monday festivities at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, TheBlaze tracked down attendees to find out what concerns them most in campaign 2012. For one delegate, who claimed she has also served as a local precinct chair in Texas, that pressing matter is “voter freedom” and “voter equity,” which she asserts Americans are being stripped — even “raped” — of.

According to the delegate, being required to present a photo ID at the polling stations creates voter inequity and causes certain people to lose “part of their freedom” and their all-American, “constitutional right” to vote — that, to her, is akin to rape.

While being required to present an ID would not actually strip someone of his or her “right” to vote, the delegate pressed on.

“It’s like raping somebody,” she stated plainly before agreeing that a utility bill is more than sufficient proof of identification to present at the voting booth.

“It‘s the most awful thing I’ve ever seen.”

When TheBlaze reminded the delegate that attendees of the Democratic National Convention, particularly members of the press, are required to present their IDs not once, not twice, but three times in order to simply enter the convention hall, she seemed to change her tune.

Ironically, she told TheBlaze that as someone who has served in the military, showing ID “comes natural” to her and that if she were asked to present her identification “ten times” at the Democratic Convention, she‘d be more than willing to do so because there it’s about “security” and “that’s too crucial.”

It should perhaps be noted that State ID cards range in price from $5 to $26.50 depending on the state of issue. Most states seem to charge roughly $10 and in many instances it is free for people over the age of 60.

Prayer at the DNC?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The Democrat National Committee announced that it will be hosting Islamic “Jummah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, soon after denying a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event.

Up to 20,000 people are expected to attend the Friday prayers and Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), said the purpose of the event is to hold political parties accountable for the issues faced by Muslim-Americans.

In particular, the event will target the Patriot Act, the NYPD, the National Defense Authorization Act, and anti-Shariah sentiment.

Now I’m not a fan of the Patriot Act nor the NDAA. I have no beef with the NYPD. It’s the Anti-Shariah thing that raised the red flag for me.

Is the “Jummah”, among other things, supposed to convince us to be Pro-Shariah, or maybe just Agnostic-Shariah? I know for a fact, I am firmly Anti-Shariah, as is anyone that supports freedom and basic human rights.

Although one has to agree, to a certain extent, being Muslim in America does have it’s challenges, those who are well-informed of the dangers of radical Islam are expressing serious doubts about this event.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, wrote:

The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj [are not] moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims. Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.Their jummah (group) prayer is…about empowering their Islamist and MB (Muslim Brotherhood) sympathetic groups into the very fabric of the political system so that Americans become anesthetized. We need American Muslims to speak up and marginalize these radicals. The DNC needs to understand and reject them because of their radical history and ideas.

The mosque of Jibril Hough, mentioned by Dr. Jasser, is owned by the North American Islamic Trust, which was named as an unindicted conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial as one of the entities “who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”

Siraj Wahhaj, the “Grand Imam” for Jummah at the DNC, is often considered a “moderate” because he was the first Muslim to give an invocation in the U.S. Congress, but as Robert Spencer notes, he has a number of troubling ties to dangerous radicals. In the early 1990′s the man reportedly sponsored talks by “the Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman in New York and New Jersey mosques, and told his followers that the United States will fall unless it “accepts the Islamic agenda.” I’m sure he is reformed though.

Islam’s answer to homosexuality

I wonder if any group will have the courage to organize a protest of the Jummah? Maybe Queer Nation will have a homosexual kiss-in as was boldly done over the Chick-fil-A flap, or possibly a march for same-sex marriage within the Muslim faith. After all, homosexual relations are a capital offense under Shariah. Might the NOW gang loudly protest out front for womens rights under Shariah? Could the U.N. muster their human rights council to gather at the event?  Silly me, of course not. That would take actual courage. The event will go off with a hiccup and without a peep from the so-called caring liberals.
