Good afternoon folks…I’m guessing @liepardestin will be putting up a better livestream when he gets home from work(I hope, I hope 🙂 )
At least with this Fox feed we can watch some of the ongoing protests outside the convention as they happen live, until the convention starts.
Thanks grapevines! Im about to go out house hunting as its the end of the month almost and I have nowhere to live yet, but I’ll be back here in a bit to try and do some liveblogging!
Here is a link to the PBS livestream:

Yo, heads up. Jill Stein will be interviewed this hour on MSNBC. (it’s now 4:19 ET).
Thanks @Benny …now there’s something that I’d actually like to see!
I am now an Independent. I just switched my registration after 41 years as a Democrat. This is the only meaningful way I can see to mark my protest of the current incarnation of the Dem Party.
If the party is too stupid/corrupt to see the opportunity they had in Bernie Sanders then I don’t want to be part of them. Not to mention how in bed they are with special interests. If Bernie could raise $200 million from small donations with a message that resonated with voters, then let the Dems follow suit.
In my state – -the swing state of NC — Independents can vote in primaries. I would not have changed if I could not still vote in a Dem primary. Our local and state Dems can be pretty good and they will still get my support. The Green Party is non-existent here.
I will also likely vote to prevent Trump and certainly vote to prevent any more GOP in congress. In our current system we are only allotted a very limited choice. I will vote for the lesser of evil to prevent worsening climate change, to prevent our National Parks from being privatized, to protect Social Security and Medicare. More GOP rule means much more ground to make up. I live in a state that has been ravaged by GOP rule. They are horrible.
I’m going out on #DEMEXIT day on the 29th…over 40 years for me too as a Dem…no more. I’m done.
We have caucuses here.
If you have a caucus that means you can not vote in the primary. That would be unacceptable to me. That’s where incumbents can get challenged.
I didn’t know that the 29th was THE day. Oh well.
you were close enough :O)
Did anyone else see this?

I don’t know grapevines (on an edit now while I looked for further evidence), but I found this:

I saw it and posted the tweet over on Spud’s Post earlier….do you think it could be some kind of troll? I’m starting to have doubts about it.
Why is Bernie Sanders trying to muzzle us? It’s BULLSHIT about it “damaging” the movement – just plan bullshit. Who is threatening him???? How can he be that afraid of DEMONSTRATION and civil disobedience? What the fuck is going on????? He’s expecting us all to turn into little sheep….well, FUCK THAT!
i don’t think we’re listening. Hill has padded the room.
Caerus: Nobody is muzzling anybody. The movement is not damaged unless you believe all the vidiot nonsense. Turn off your video for awhile. It’s all crap to start with.
Don’t you consider Bernie emailing delegates telling them to stop protesting, is trying to keep them quiet? Kinda like telling Rosa Parks to just get up and “give the nice man your seat.”
Representative Harkin, did you know that Clinton is for 12$ an hour minimum wage while Bernie is for 15$ an hour? So how is it that you magically come to the conclusion that Clinton who favors raising the minimum wage by a very significant 3 dollars less, will be better for low wage workers?
Also: delegates start chanting “BERNIE SANDERS!” at the end of Harkin’s speech. Cue the music!
and for all life on earth… ya gotta laugh.
i just want to see the roll call for Bernie and then i’m outa here. makes me so mad.
“equal pay!” as low as you can get away with.
Secretary Grimes could you explain why Hillary is still in favor of our vampire healthcare system (“affordable healthcare”) and not for single payer healthcare?
It’s funny how Secretary Grimes says “let’s stand up” and elect Hillary Clinton. But then she goes into instant fearmongering about Trump.
hoping some are NOT standing up.
seeing the Bernie crowd! Here comes the roll call!
woo hoo our last time to say so, almost
THAT’S what i’m talkin’ bout! Connecting “seamlessly” with so many disparate groups. LOVE.
It’s Rep Tulsi! Yo! Great surrogate, although I would have liked Nina to do it as well.
Answer is in his aloha and his love for Mother Earth. When my children hurt, your children hurt. It is love to care…
“Every senior citizen is my parent.”
“To care about lives lost, lives ruined, and countries destroyed by counter productive regime change wars.” –Tulsi Gabbard
There’s Bernie and Jane!
Dang, this should be the Democratic Party’s message She’s inspiring.
oh yeah. Bernie would have walked all over Trump. Hill will win. unenthusiastically.
