Bernie Supporters Claim DNC Confiscated Their Bernie Signs, So They Doctor Up Other Signs, Tape Mouths To Show Being Silenced…
Via Daily Caller:
Bernie Sanders supporters at the Democratic National Convention claim people are seizing pro-Sanders signs in an effort to suppress the heavy support he is receiving on the convention floor.
The allegations began flying Monday night on Twitter just as the Democratic convention kicked off. Many Sanders supporters in the arena booed every mention of presumed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, creating a divisive atmosphere at what is supposed to be the party’s big celebration.
“They are ripping signs out of people’s hands and threatening no credentials tomorrow if we hold up signs,” one Sanders delegate allegedly said in a text message exchange posted online by a friend.
Warning for loud cursing:
Needless to say, the families and friends didn’t take it well.

Last week an 18-year-old German-Iranian man opened fire in a crowded Munich shopping mall and a nearby McDonald’s, killing nine people and wounding 16 others before killing himself. The gunman, later identified as David Ali Sonboly, reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” before the shooting began, according to the Daily Mail.
After the tragic massacre, a group of Germans gathered at the scene of the attack over the weekend to mourn together, only to be confronted with another disturbance.
The Italian news outlet Il Fatto Quotidiano released a video Sunday that captures the moment a group of Muslim men at the memorial shouted, “Allahu Akbar!” — the Islamic phrase often employed by jihadists that translates to, “God is the greatest.”
The Germans in attendance reacted angrily, yelling at the individuals who uttered the Islamic cry. Police on the scene diffused the situation, but tensions remained high.
Hotter than hell in Philly, and now lightening causing an evacuation of the media center tent.

The Democratic National Convention began Monday and is already full of frustrated attendees upset with the poor logistics.
At one entrance to the Wells Fargo Center Monday, a line of uncomfortable, sweating conference attendees seethed after being told they could not enter. When one person pressed the staff member as to why they were waiting, the staff member replied that he needed to call someone but didn’t have a walkie talkie. Around the corner, one man could be heard yelling “Who’s in charge?!” to an employee seemingly incapable of providing help.
“No one knows what they’re doing here,” another attendee shot in the air. This reporter was told conflicting information from multiple employees, many of whom had no idea which entrance to go to or where the media tent was located.
When TheDCNF asked a worker at the media info table about wireless internet, his face fell. He said there was was wi-fi, but it wasn’t really working in part of the media tent. The media tent is where reporters get Internet access to write their stories.

Unfortunately, this 11 yr old has parents who didn’t care about the laws, they have caused any worrying she may have. Hillary is highlighting and celebrating their breaking of the law.
They built a wall around the outside of the convention, to keep the riff raff and angry Bernie protesters out to protect themselves. They build a wall around the podium to protect themselves. They just don’t want to build a wall that would protect everyone else in the country.
And I thought walls were racist? I’m so confused!
‘Mistake’? Deliberate collusion does not equal ‘mistake’….
NEW YORK ― Politico acknowledged Sunday that it was a “mistake” for one of its top reporters to send the Democratic National Committee an advance copy of an article while emphasizing there were no substantive changes made to the piece prior to publication.
A May 2 article by Politico’s Ken Vogel and Isaac Arnsdorf ― “Clinton fundraising leaves little for state parties” ― has come under scrutiny since WikiLeaks published over 19,000 internal DNC emails on Friday.
In an April 29 email thread, DNC national press secretary Mark Paustenbach shared Vogel’s detailed questions with others working to coordinate a response to what would be an unflattering story about fundraising efforts. Paustenbach also spoke to the Clinton campaign that day in preparing the DNC’s pushback, according to the emails.
On April 30, Paustenbach told DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda that he’d received the story in advance. “Vogel gave me his story ahead of time/before it goes to his editors as long as I didn’t share it,” he wrote. “Let me know if you see anything that’s missing and I’ll push back.”
Democrats mask of embracing diversity is slipping…
PHILADELPHIA—A Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee compared Jewish Israeli settlers to termites on Monday while speaking at an event sponsored by an anti-Israel organization that supports boycotts of the Jewish state.
Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) launched into a tirade against Israel and its policies toward the Palestinians, comparing Jewish people who live in disputed territories to “termites” that destroy homes. Johnson also compared Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a remark that drew vocal agreement from those in the room.
“There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself, there has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever increasing rate to the point where it has become alarming,” Johnson said during an event sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, an anti-Israel organization that galvanizes supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS.
Feel better Bernie?
The Democratic National Committee is offering its “deep and sincere apology” to Bernie Sanders, his supporters and the entire party for what it calls “the inexcusable remarks made over email.”
The statement from incoming interim party leader, Donna Brazile, and six other officials says the comments in the emails “do not reflect the values of the DNC or our steadfast commitment to neutrality during the nominating process.”
The statement says the party won’t tolerate disrespectful language.
The statement wasn’t signed by the outgoing DNC head, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
She announced on Sunday that she’d step down from that job at the end of this week’sDemocratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
The emails suggested party officials favored Clinton over rival Sanders during the primaries.
Party of diversity…

Democratic operatives made fun of a black woman’s name in an email chain recently leaked by the website Wikileaks.
An email with Scott Comer, the finance chief of staff and LGBT finance director for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Zachary Allen with the firm TIPAH Consulting, makes fun of LaQueenia Gibson’s name. Gibson is an executive assistant for the company Haddad Brands.
“LaQueenia is a NAME!” Allen wrote to Comer in May, 2016. “I’m sorry, boo. I hope you got a raise with this title.”
Allen is a Democratic campaign consultant who has been paid thousands of dollars by the DNC. A Federal Election Commission (FEC) report for 2015 shows Allen was paid $10,500 for “Fundraising Consulting” in September, 2015. The email was reported earlier on Fox News host Sean Hannity’s website.

They’re out of his control now.
PHILADELPHIA—Bernie Sanders’ supporters booed and interrupted Sanders when he told the crowd of thousands to vote for Hillary Clinton.
“We have got to elect Hillary Clinton president,” Sanders said in a rally announcing a new grass-roots undertaking. Immediately, boos loudly rained down in the giant ballroom at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
The boos interrupted Sanders for half a minute as energetic Sanders volunteers and delegates screamed that they wouldn’t support Clinton. “Never Her! Never Her!” parts of the crowd chanted.
“Real politics are not that sexy,” Sanders said to calm the crowd down.

Video: Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Forgets To Gavel In The Democratic National Convention
My introduction to the Democratic National Convention was being set up by talk-radio row. The first thing a lot of us realized was a sign on the bathroom directly across from us. The sign reads: “all-gender restroom.”
All of the other bathrooms in the arena appear to be more traditional, split by the sexes. Is it a coincidence that the all-gender restroom is right by the press booth?
I went inside to take some photos. It appears that it’s just a women’s bathroom with the new sign on it.
Not everyone is happy. One woman who works at the arena walked by muttered something under her breath. I was there to talk a little bit more in depth with her.
“I don’t need no man in the next stall next to me while I go to the bathroom,” she told me. “So that means you could be [using the restroom] or something and I’m right there. It’s not right. And they say all the bathrooms are like this?
“We need a male and female. I’ve got personal business. I’m trying to keep it real. Seriously,” she added. “… It’s privacy. I need privacy. Ain’t no kids in here, but I need privacy. Simple as that.”
Is it the end of the world? No, of course not. It’s not a big deal. Is it a little weird? Sure. We’re not used to it. But I think we will survive.
Reason #2,983,233 not to vote for her.
I want an economy that gets back to raising incomes for everybody. Most Americans haven’t had a raise. I want an economy that’s going to help lift millions of people out of poverty. Because, given the great recession, we have fallen back in the wrong direction. And I’m also going to be relying on President Obama. You know, I’ve already put him on notice. I’m going to be picking up the phone. I’m going to be calling and asking for his advice. And so we’re going to put them all to work.
