    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Presenting The Democratic National Convention's "Ron Paul Moment"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Moments ago we learned that the Democrats have once again reinstated language into their party platform that recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as well as the words "God-given" that were removed in this year's platform. However, the 'vote' on this controversial decision (shown in the clip below), brings back vivid memories of the GOP convention's own Ron Paul moment; and must be seen to be believed as the true state of our nation's "democratic process" is once again exposed for all to see. Simply remarkable...

And this happened earlier:

After sharp criticism from Mitt Romney and Republicans, the Democrats have reinstated the language into their party platform that recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as well as the words "God-given" that were removed in this year's platform.

 

The platform released by Democrats Monday evening dropped a clause included in the 2008 platform that read: "Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel." That platform went on to say, however, that "[t]he parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths."

 

The party reinstated the 2008 language into this year's platform to "reflect the President's personal view," CBS News has learned.

 

Israel maintains that its capital is Jerusalem, but the United States and other nations maintain embassies in Tel Aviv because East Jerusalem is contested by the Palestinians, who see it as a potential capital for their state.

 

Romney called Jerusalem "the capital of Israel" in July, prompting criticism from the Palestinians as well as China. Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat called the comment "absolutely unacceptable."

 

But as a presidential candidate, Mr. Obama said in 2008 that "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided," though he later softened his stance and said he is not trying to "predetermine" the final status of the city. As president, he has maintained that, as his campaign put it to CBS News, "the capital is something that should be determined in final status negotiations between the parties."

 

Romney said in a statement Tuesday that it's "unfortunate that the entire Democratic Party has embraced President Obama's shameful refusal to acknowledge that Jerusalem is Israel's capital."

 

"Four years of President Obama's repeated attempts to create distance between the United States and our cherished ally have led the Democratic Party to remove from their platform an unequivocal acknowledgment of a simple reality," he said. "As president, I will restore our relationship with Israel and stand shoulder to shoulder with our close ally."

 

Meantime, the word "God" was dropped from a paragraph that, in 2008, spoke of giving those willing to work the opportunity to "make the most of their God-given potential." In this year's platform a similar paragraph reads "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."

Well, after they ignored the clear non-2/3 vote, all the chumps just sat there and took it.

Who rushed the stage?  Who boo-ed the proceedings until they couldn't continue?  DID ANYONE EVEN WALK THE F'K OUT?

All it takes for evil to trimuph is for good people to be lazy sacks of shit.

When Sartre said that every French person "got the [Second World] War that they deserved," people said that was really harsh.  Well you can see it here in action.

You need to know something of how to play the game of three level chess.

Our Zionist Occupied Government (ZOG) control everything. You have to use a wealth of knowledge and well played strategy to out maneuver those sons of bitches in that cesspool they call the establishment. Makes me fucking vomit at what we have to put up with. You must be very careful with the words that come out of your mouths lest you be absolutely sqered by the main stream media making our chances of ever achieving anything null and void.

I'll give you an example of the the game that must be played;

My words of advice for all US patriots running for major public office; Make sure you do your obligatory Israel Lobby ass licking statements just like  Rand Paul and others. You will not get on TV if you don’t.

Example of failure to execute:
“Upset that Republican Carl Paladino disavowed portions of the speeches he made at two Brooklyn synagogues on Sunday, Rabbi Yehuda Levin on Wednesday withdrew his support for the candidate.

“If he continues on this path, not only can’t I vote for him, but I will call on all religious people to write in ‘morality’ or something like that [on the ballot],” said Rabbi Levin in a phone interview.”

It is preferable to say good things about Israel for the ADL and the Israel Lobby when you are a candidate. You can always turn your back on them in your own way after you are elected into the office and become an America firster. You must also be prepared never to say anything disparaging "in the Jews mind" that would offend them. Work the system doing an end run around them and play it smart.

One more thing;

Clinton signed NAFTA.

Clinton abolished Glass-Steagall.

Clinton changed the formula they use to calculate the unemployment rate they announce on Jewtube MSM TV so the percentage appears lower.

And they love him for it.

The Clinton/Obama ass licking Democrat/Math Challenged persons, deserve what they get.

And another thing;

I'm getting sick and tired of paying the Jew Fine Fee on almost everything I buy.

It's that U in a Circle on the front label of many products I buy and you buy all the time.

I would be paying less money for that same product if that U with the Circle around it weren't on it.

I  just found out about it this shit this week.

What the fuck is this shit all about that I'm paying for?!!!

I'm not even Jewish.

Michael, you completely left out Clinton's contribution to the CRA abortion.  He's more responsible for the housing crash thann all other presidents put together, yet I'm watching on TV saying yesterday's policies didn't work?  Hypocrisy, thy name is Bill.

The only way I can rationally fault Clinton for the dot.com bubble is the fact that Greenspan gave the "irrational exuberance" speech and proceeded to do absolutely nothing about it.....I have always concluded that this was due to political pressure.

you bring up an interesting point.  because of hitler's evil, the nation of israel was, mistakenly, established as a, get this, haven of protection for jews.  it is now the vastly predominate reason jews are killed for being jews.  surviving european jews would have been far safer and probably richer settling around dachau.  ok if that is too distasteful london, new york and los angeles.

so now we have the coming invasion of iran (nee iraq, nee lebanon ...) to make the world "safer" for israel.  it is truly amazing how deluded even the brightest minds can be.  of course i am not ...

Yeah.. It's absolutely true that Germany got off easy by handing their debts off to the Arabs.   What percent of German land was Jewish?  (I have no idea).  But  I wonder if anyone has ever done the math on how much German land (and what percentage of major European cities) were once Jewish.    I'll bet any amount of money that Germany *has* done that math, and it scares the pants off them which is why they support Israel.   It's sure easier for Germany (and Poland, and Austria and Sweden and France, etc.) to give away land that's not theirs than it is to give away huge chunks of their own territory.  

OTOH -- where are all the Iraqi, Egyptian, Syrian, Iranian and Jordanian jews today?  Those populations were once quite large.   They didn't leave on a whim.

Jewish German land, eh?  You mean all those hectares they acquired through usury?

All Arab nations had vibrant Jewish communities until Israeli agents instigated pogroms against them to encourage them to flee to the "safety" of Israel.  It's documented and shit.  Look it up.
