Protesters ride in on horses and camels

I. Ain’t. Never!

Free-for-all: Supporters of the Egyptian President, riding camels and horses, charge at anti-Mubarak protesters in Cairo on Wednesday.

Let me tell you ’bout Ahab The Arab
The Sheik of the burning sand
He had emeralds and rubies just a dripping offa him
And a ring on every finger of his hands
He wore a big ol’ turban wrapped around his head
And a scimitar by his side
And every evenin’ about midnight
He’d jump on his camel named Clyde…and ride

Promoters of Ground Zero mosque are Ameriphobic

Among the prime planners of a $100 million Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero, it’s not just Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf who is visiting the Middle East this summer at U.S. taxpayer expense. The State Department is also about to send Rauf’s wife and Cordoba Initiative fellow director, Daisy Khan, on her own taxpayer-funded “public diplomacy” trip to the United Arab Emirates. Khan is scheduled to visit the UAE from Aug. 29 to Sept. 2, overlapping there with Rauf, for whom it will be the final leg of a three-country trip including Bahrain and Qatar.

Now, meanwhile, while awaiting her departure, Daisy is in the United States demanding constitutional rights and ripping dissenters of the Obama Mosque on national tv as being hateful, islamophobic, and intolerant for exercising their constitutional rights to oppose the mosque.

Can you really believe this?  The United States of America is funding this couple to tour Arab countries “to engage foreign audiences and build people-to-people ties” and to “discuss their experiences as Muslims living and working in the United States.”

He’s on video talking about America having more “blood on our hands than al Queda” and she’s showing the love by calling us bigots and islamophobes, can you imagine what they are saying about the United States in the Arab countries and on tax money?

Wow.  Just wow.

The protest in New York City on Sunday was about 10 to 1 against the mosque. And so now New Yorkers are bigots and haters?

Insanity.

Sedition? Give me a Break

William O. Douglas noted, “The Alien and Sedition Laws constituted one of our sorriest chapters; and I had thought we had done with them forever … Suppression of speech as an effective police measure is an old, old device, outlawed by our Constitution.”

Chris Matthews, Norah O’Donnell, and Time columnist, Joe Klein are practically accusing Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and others, of sedition.  Klein looked up the word and reads the definition, from a napkin, on the Chris Matthews Show.  I did not see this because I’m not going to watch the trash.  But this is so ridiculous.  They are getting silly, just silly.

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jeff-poor/2010/04/18/time-s-klein-beck-palin-potentially-committing-sedition-against-u-s-gover

I wonder if Chris Matthews and/or Joe Klein (or the president himself for that matter) have ever heard of the “chilling of free speech.”  Maybe while they are looking up the word sedition, they can look up something on that one.

http://writ.news.findlaw.com/hilden/20040217.html

What do they think of actually writing a book entitled, “How to Overthrow the Government?”  New York Times called it:  “Devastating” and David Shribman says that Huffington “has written a manifesto that can be summarized with an old-line popular cry: Throw the bums out.” Jim Hightower praised it: “Up with Arianna! She’s outraged, she’s knowledgeable,…and she points us in the right direction to take our country back.”  I think you can get a copy from Amazon for about $12.00.  I just hope to God it doesn’t excite anybody to violence.  🙂

“Huffington offers radical yet viable strategies for reclaiming our nation from the corporate and political powers that hold it hostage. For, as she argues, if We the People are to preserve and protect our more perfect union, we must stand up and fight for our country — before it’s too late.”

Yep, that’s exactly what the Tea Party movement is all about.

This is still America, we are Americans, and we will continue to speak, continue to rally, continue to meet, and continue to protest what is going on in our country.  And, yes, it is the government, the White House, and the media and the press, all working in concert to try to discredit, disrespect, silence, slander and defame the American people.

Take a look at this brand new poll from Pew showing about 80 percent of the people have no confidence in the government.  And I’ll add the media to that as well.  80 percent is a lot of folks.  Who could the drop in the bucket 20 percent be?  Probably the people in the White House and their mouths, the mainstream media.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_government_distrust

Our numbers are growing, our resolve is getting stronger and stronger, and we know we are on the right side of this issue.

And about Sedition:

…..in the seminal free speech case of NEW YORK TIMES  Co. v. Sullivan, the Court declared, “ Although the Sedition Act was never tested in this Court, the attack upon its validity has carried the day in the court of history.” 376 U.S. 254, 276 (1964). In a concurring opinion in Watts v. United States, which involved an alleged threat against President Lyndon Johnson, William O. Douglas noted, “The Alien and Sedition Laws constituted one of our sorriest chapters; and I had thought we had done with them forever … Suppression of speech as an effective police measure is an old, old device, outlawed by our Constitution.”[2]

Funny little story about Sedition:

While the Alien and Sedition Laws were in force, John Adams, en route from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Quincy, Massachusetts, stopped in Newark, New Jersey, where he was greeted by a crowd and by a committee that saluted him by firing a cannon. A bystander said, “There goes the President and they are firing at his ass.” Luther Baldwin was indicted for replying that he did not care “if they fired through his ass.” He was convicted in the federal court for speaking “sedicious words tending to defame the President and Government of the United States” and fined, assessed court costs and expenses, and placed in jail until the fine and fees were paid.[3]

Jury nullification was practiced in many cases involving the Alien and Sedition Acts.

I am sure Chris Matthews and Mr. Klein are keenly aware of all of this.  You don’t think they would try to bamboozle anybody, do you?

God, they sure do hate us.

“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance. — U.S. President Woodrow Wilson —

“But when our laws, our leaders or our government are out of alignment with our ideals, then the dissent of ordinary Americans may prove to be one of the truest expression of patriotism.” — U.S. President Barack H. Obama —

Maxine Waters outraged over tea partiers waving American flags

Another laugh out loud display of hypocrisy

Maxine Waters just thought it was “outrageous behavior” for the tea party protesers to be loud, and laughing, and, horror of horrors,  waving American flags.  Uh huh, and she didn’t hesitate to say so on Morning Joe recently.

Why do they just keep digging and looking more and more foolish for lying against the Tea Party people?  Maxine Waters and her cohorts in Washington are just in utter desperation to discredit the movement and it has really made them lose their minds and any integrity they may have had a few shreds of.  But, hey, that’s what happens when you set out to deceive and slander.  Most of the time it backfires.

This is a must see video compilation of Ms. Waters’ own harsh words and actual outrageous behavior a few years ago being contrasted to her words  now.

CNN has a reporter embedded with the Tea Party Express bus.   See what he/she (Shannon – not sure if it’s a man or woman) has to say.

Protests Against Obamacare being held this week – Update X2 (New Pics and video)

Scroll to the bottom for video and updates from St. Louis yesterday.

While you cannot depend on regular news sources to tell you about what  is happening, there are protests across America in opposition to Obamacare.  Here are just a few examples.
Today, Obama is scheduled to appear in St. Louis, and this event has been closed to the public.  (I am watching him now in Washington, D. C. introducing the president of Haiti, so I supposed he is still going to St. Louis, or not?)   It is later this evening and I guess it doesn’t take long to get there on Air Force One.

There are protests scheduled in St. Louis for today.

“This Is Your Last Best Chance to Show the President You Don’t Want Obamacare—
2 Protests Are Planned……….
–The first protest is at 9:45 AM at the St. Charles Convention Center
–The second protest is at 5:30 at the at the Renaissance Grand hotel in downtown St. Louis.”

Scenes from Monday in Philadelphia on the outside of Arcadia University where Obama was speaking:

http://votingfemale.wordpress.com/2010/03/09/the-mighty-tea-party-movement-gives-obama-a-philadelphia-hotfoot-2/

Below is a video of a rally which was on Monday, I believe, from North Carolina protesting in front of the office of Kay Hagan, (D) N. C. Senator. This is likely representative of other locations, so all is not as cheery as they want us to believe.

I believe it all hinges on the House vote.  If it doesn’t pass the House I think it’s all over.  If it does pass the House, Obama will sign it and we have health care reform.  It may never get to the Senate for the “reconciliation.”

(Monday in North Carolina)

UPDATE 1: From Michele Malkin:  Large crowd of about 2000 people were at the morning protest in St. Louis., actually St. Charles I believe it is.
See some great pictures Here.

UPDATE 2:  Tea Party welcomes Obama to St. Louis yesterday/last night!!

See “2300 Greet Obama at St. Louis Fundraiser”.

FIRED UP – READY TO GO

Photos from Dana Loesch (Pronounced Lash – I recently read an article about her. She’s a young mother and one of the original tea partiers or a tea partier before there was a tea party.)

There are lots of young people in this movement. Just check out the pictures.

Huge array of pictures Here.

“Mob” greets Obama in San Francisco

Where Left meets Right on the Streets of San Francisco

This is the crowd outside the Westin Saint Francis Hotel on yesterday while Obama’s on the inside talking about mops. (Maybe it was in New Orleans instead of San Francisco, but anyway, it was yesterday he made the comment about mops.)

san francisco

“”Another way of putting it is when, you know, I’m busy and Nancy is busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else’s mess –- we don’t want somebody sitting back saying, you’re not holding the mop the right way. (Applause.) Why don’t you grab a mop, why don’t you help clean up. (Applause.) You’re not mopping fast enough. (Laughter.) That’s a socialist mop. (Laughter and applause.) Grab a mop –- let’s get to work.””

Real presidential!


Related with Video.

“”Oct. 16, 2009 | About 700 protesters gathered in front of the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco’s Union Square Thursday, where President Obama spoke at a private fund-raiser.

About two-thirds of the demonstrators could be described as coming from the left side of the political spectrum. Demands included military withdrawal from Iraq, putting an end to healthcare reform and increasing intergalactic diplomacy.””

We are the mob in Brown Shirts. Be very afraid

Mobs ‘R Us

The week the government turned on the citizens.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claims protesters are “carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, armed with a patch of Astroturf,  “I just want to show you what Astroturf really is,” Reid said to laughter. “They’re taking their cues from talk show hosts, internet rumor mongers, and insurance rackets.”

Harry Reid:  “In spite of the loud, shrill voices trying to interrupt town hall meetings and just throw a monkey wrench into everything, we’re going to be positive and work hard,”  (Maybe someone in the crowd should throw a couple shoes.  That would really be funny, huh?)

Brian Baird D/Washington said he’s using the new system (telephone town halls) because he fears “extremists” may be planning “an ambush” to disrupt his meetings, using methods Baird compared to Nazism.

“What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics,” Baird, D-Vancouver, said in a phone interview. “I mean that very seriously.”
