Right on DBCowboy! Criticizing the DNC speaker-list is counter productive. For the most part, today's America will not be impressed with their line-up..not at all.

It will be interesting to see the comparison between how many viewers watch Hillary's speech, compared to how many watched Donald Trump's stellar key-note address.

ok, it looks like the DNC caved a bit, and in response they are having 2 law enforcement officers speak. That should be interesting.

Phil adelphia Police Union Rips Clinton, DNC for Not Including Families of Slain Police Officers as Convention Speakers


Philadelphia’s police union is angry with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Convention for giving speaking roles to family members of police shooting victims but not to family members of police officers who died in the line of duty.

John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, told Philadelphia’s local CBS affiliate that the speaker choices were “putting salt in the wound” and promoting an “anti-police movement.”

The union also released a statement that it was “insulted” by the exclusion of police widows and family members, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer:

“It is sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country,” the statement read. “Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself if that is possible.”

The statement came days after the Clinton campaign announced that former President Bill Clinton would speak Tuesday night along with members of Mothers of the Movement, a group that includes Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; and Lezley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown.

Clinton’s campaign responded Wednesday, noting that two members of law enforcement are scheduled to speak at the convention, including former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey.

I am still confused why they are upset that she is letting these people speak. But police unions are quick to denounce anything that they think is anti-police.

Please provide your factual source for Trump hating gays. You won't find it. Find one example where Trump hates any race. He dislikes criminals coming into our nation illegally, it happens that many today are mexicans or south americans who have raped, maimed and killed thousands of Americans.

#6 answer is just plain laughable. You really think Hillary can't be shown to be a liar? JHC that's a good one.


So all of the mexicans you know rape maim and kill Americans? What about me and my fellow Spaniards? Do we target your elderly men for extortion? Wow what a radical way of thinking! That is exactly why Hillary is ready to be POTUS and your guy is a proven scum. *SNIP*

TOP 7 LIES OF CLINTON:




Anyway, away we go … Dead Broke – In an interview, Clinton stated that she “came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt.” Something even the left-leaning Politifact found to be false.

Sniper Fire – During the 2008 campaign, Clinton said she came under sniper fire in Bosnia during the ’90s. She went so far as to claim her group ran “with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” Video of her actual arrival surfaced showing a very calm scene instead, and the Democrat would quickly say she simply misspoke.

Immigrant Grandparents – When discussing immigrant stories, Clinton asserted that “all my grandparents… came over here.” It was another story Politifact said was false, as only one of her grandparents was an immigrant.

Sir Edmund Hillary – Seems Clinton can’t even bring herself to tell the truth about her own name. She claimed to be named after Sir Edmund Hillary, one of the first men to climb Mt. Everest. One small problem though, the explorer didn’t climb Everest until Clinton was 6 years old.

The Few, The Proud, The Marines – Very recently, Clinton claimed to have been turned down by the Marines when she applied in 1975. Washington Post fact-checkers quickly realized the absurdity that a rising legal star at the time, and soon to be wife of Bill Clinton, would drop everything and ship off with the Marines. They gave her a couple of Pinocchios for her tall tale.

Secret E-Mails – Former Secretary of State Clinton claimed her infamous private e-mail server was set up in “accordance with the rules and the regulations in effect.” A federal judge disagreed, saying Clinton “violated government policy” when she used a private server to store official State Department messages.

Benghazi – Clearly the most reprehensible lie of them all – Clinton failed to tell the truth about a terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi. She claimed for weeks, standing over the flag-draped coffins of murdered Americans, that an insensitive YouTube video had incited the violence that occurred that night. Why? Because a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 – which it was – would have destroyed President Obama’s re-election chances. But hey, at the end of the day it’s worth it to Clinton to tell a politically expedient lie, so long as her party can stay in power.

Most if not all of your examples have been proven false and/or have been shown to have no relevance to her qualification as a candidate. Let's try to keep things current and relevant to this thread on the DNC please.

Maybe it's just me.

But what we'll see at the convention is police being held to a high standard because of what they do, and politicians not being held to a high standard because of what they do.

I find it funny and hypocritical.

That's fine. I figured I was wasting my time.

Sometimes the people are not receptive to truth.

If you want to take anything from my original post, understand that the media is corrupt and controlled. Anything you read on mainstream publications is spin and propaganda by design.

Without the backing of the major media, Hillary would have no support.

Except of course that she is a compulsive liar, bordering on sociopathic. Seriously, she lies when there is little or no gain to lying.

Your accusations are opinions, that you've asserted more than once. They aren't facts. We get it. You think Hillary Clinton is a liar. Who cares about Trump's lies and empty promises, or lying Ted Cruz, and all the other lying Republicans that broke their "word" and refused to support the GOP candidate because they just can't stomach the thought?

But this thread isn't about Trump's lies and empty promises, it's about the Democratic National Conventions, and Hillary Clinton as the party's nominee.

Hillary made a very wise choice in choosing Tim Kaine, as her running mate, don't you think?

Sorry, but in my opinion I think that it is sexist to vote for someone based on their gender.
I say that as a woman.


And you might want to go back and look at the words that Mods have been snipping out of your posts.
There are some terms that are against the rules. Yet, you keep doing it.
I'm letting you know for your own sake.
