Washington D. C. Teaparty –
I have to say I love the real photos below more than my graphic.
What a Tea Party! Estimates range from 1 to 2 MILLION people showed up to protest Obama’s fiscal irresponsibility and march to socialism/fascism. AP reported the event as tens of thousands of protestors when in fact it was well over a million. Can you see why people are pissed at the media?
The RightSideofLife has a good article describing this historic event with many photos:

It’s official. All major media are now reporting between 1.5 to 2 million marches on Washington D.C. for the Tea Party Protest. Sponsored by libertarian groups such as Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Works, and self-described “libertarian” Fox News Host Glenn Beck, today’s event is now the largest libertarian event in the history of the United States.…Continue Reading
And from the Examiner:
September 12, 3:46 PM Columbia Conservative Examiner Anthony G. Martin
The photo above is a view of part of the crowd of protesters who gathered in Washington, D.C. and around the country today to demand control of reckless runaway government spending and to voice their opposition to the government takeover of healthcare.
Police agencies estimates the crowd at 1.2 million. ABC News, however, reported this afternoon that the crowd was estimated at 2 million.
No matter which way you cut it, the size and scope of today’s citizen march on Washington is an historic, groundbreaking event. Ordinary citizens who have been called ‘the great silent majority’ normally do not protest…at least not in public. That day is long gone.
The outrage expressed by normal, everyday citizens from across the nation at the town hall meetings in August is a case in point. Never before in recent history or memory have citizens been so clearly, visibly–and audibly–enraged by the actions of their government.
These are the people who go to work everyday, pay the bulk of the taxes of the country, raise families, and do their best to provide a safe environment for themselves in their local communities. They don’t have time for ‘political activism’ as the hippies who protested the Viet Nam war.
Yet these dedicated men and women, at great personal expense, took the time to travel to Washington to make their voices heard in a tsunami of collective rage, mainly because they have become convinced that their elected leaders are not listening to them any longer.
And you bet they want ’change.’ They want to replace most if not all of the Representatives and Senators in Congress for being hopelessly out of touch with the citizenry. They want a President who loves liberty, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and who reflects that love in the policies that are proposed…Continue Reading
And saving the best coverage for last, Michelle Malkin gives a America a bird’s eye view:

I was offline for most of the afternoon and early evening — and just learned that the nutroots are claiming that the screenshot of the 9/12 march in D.C. that I posted — taken from a livecam of the event that I linked to here — is somehow “fake.”
The claim is that the shot came from the Kennedy procession or a previous left-wing protest and that the flag at half-mast proves that it was “fake.”
Newsflash for the clueless: Flags were still at half-mast earlier today in honor of the murder victims of the 9/11 jihadi attacks.
Guess the 9/11-was-an-inside jobbers are still that much in denial.
Yes, this is real:
And so is this: …Continue Reading

I can’t make it to Washington DC today for the national 9/12 march, but I’m with all the marchers in spirit.
It’s been an unprecedented year for limited government activism. It would never have been possible without the early initiative of grass-roots leaders in the #tcot community on Twitter, Smart Girl Politics #DontGo — and concerned women like Keli Carender and Amanda Grosserode who stood up in their communities against reckless spending in Washington before anyone was listening. Before the cable news was paying attention. Before it became fashionable for politicians to latch on.
Activists were derided as amateurs who couldn’t turn out a crowd. Then they were smeared as corporate shills. They were criticized for not having a coherent message. Then they were mocked for ideological single-mindedness. They are resented by professional strategists who accuse them of organizing empty protests that won’t translate into electoral gains. But the movement has given birth to a new generation of movers and shakers who have rejected establishment partisan politics for nimble, Internet-facilitated, issues-based advocacy.
The success of the Tea Party movement and its allies/successors shows that there’s no monopoly on “community organizing.”
You are the change we’ve been praying for.

Rhodes v. MacDonald et al
Assigned to: Judge Clay D. Land
Date Filed: 09/04/2009
Jury Demand: Plaintiff
Nature of Suit: 440 Civil Rights: Other
Jurisdiction: U.S. Government Defendant
…we had a hearing on 11th. Defendants were represented by 3 attorneys: US attorney, Pentagon attorney and Fort Benning attorney. they claimed that my client, flight surgeon Cpt Rhodes MD didn’t show up for no reason, she just didn’t feel like coming.
I presented to the judge a notarized statement, showing that Col Jeffrey Johnson, her commander from Fort Riley, KS has forbidden Connie from leaving Fort Riley a day early and she was threatened that if she does, she will be court martialedand can be thrown into military prison. In this fashion the gov. prevented Connie from being at her own hearing and 5 minutes before the hearing they served me with the motion to dismiss.
Judge Land did not appreciate this strong hand tactic of the government and he ordered the government to make sure Connie is able to leave the base to be at her hearing, which was scheduled for Monday at 12 noon. This time it is their responsibility to do whatever is necessary for Connie to be in court.
It is a tough week for me as in 5 days I am making 5 red eye flights and long trips between OC, LA, Atlanta, Columbus and WA DC….Continue Reading
Natural Born Citizen -
Smoking Pelosi Gun Suggests NO!
From World Net Daily comes damning evidence that indicates Pelosi knew that Obama was not/is not a Natural Born Citizens.
BORN IN THE USA?
What does Pelosi know about Obama’s eligibility?Online images for certification of nomination raise questions
Posted: September 11, 2009
By Bob Unruh
A commentator at Canada Free Press says he has obtained copies of two documents apparently prepared by Democrats to certify Barack Obama as their nominee for president in 2008 that suggest House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew there was an unresolved issue with his eligibility under the U.S. Constitution.
Writer JB Williams describes himself as a “no nonsense commentator on American politics, American history, and American philosophy.” And he say’s he’s gotten possession of copies of the documents in question.
The first includes a verification that Obama and Joe Biden, then-candidate for vice president, “are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.” ….Continue Reading
Larry Sinclair has an important post up today that represents the crisis in blind justice that America faces today. I urge everyone to read the article Mr. Sinclair links to. It is not America when only the few can find justice and others are ignored.
From Larry Snclair:

The below link is to the story about The Atlantic magazine writer Andrew Sullivan being given special treatment by the US Attorney while continuing with prosecuting others in the same court at the same time for the same charge. It seems the US Attorney feels Mr. Sullivan’s attacks on Sarah Palin and her infant son Trig was worthy of being exempt from prosecution.
Mr. Sullivan should face the same prosecution as others who were in the court for the exact same violations. Read the article and click on the link to read “…the full Opinion” at the bottom of the article.
It’s always interesting and informative to visit Larry Sinclair’s blog once a day to get is take on what’s going on in his life and the world of politics. Larry Sinclair is the man who has alleged that he and Obama engaged in consensual sex and used cocaine back in 1999. Nothing in Mr. Sinclair’s story has been contradicted by any facts. Obama was available in Chicago during the week in question as far as anyone can tell. Just like the question of whether Obama is a Natural Born Citizen, entitling him to remain in the Oval Office, Obama has refused to provide any documentation from his past that might refute Mr. Sinclair’s allegations. I for one, from observing the incredible amounts of deception and hidden agendas present in the White House, believe Larry Sinclair.
Larry Sinclair has sent a copy of his book to the Michelle and Barack for their reading pleasure on their many taxpayer-funded vacations. I suppose Larry Sinclair would be willing to consider any corrections that Obama would care to point out. Maybe the Limo was not exactly white, but eggshell white. Or maybe Obama wanted to do a little catching, but Mr. Sinclair refused him. Who knows? It’s interesting how everyone’s memories about events from years back differ in the small details.
I saw that Larry Sinclair had a post up that indicated that he had sent a copy of his book (Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder) to Glenn Beck. Hopefully, Glenn Beck will read it. Given that Glenn Beck’s eyes are now wide open to the deceptions and socialist/progressive agendas of the Obama Administration, he may just believe Mr. Sinclair.
I also hope that Glenn Beck would revisit the Obama eligibility/natural born citizen issue. Given that Glenn Beck is fully aware how dangerous Obama’s agendas are to our American Republic and freedoms – maybe he will understand that if Obama is found to ineligible to serve as President, ALL of the Czars could be removed and everything Obama did undone. There could be real hope to set America back on course, based on fidelity to its Constitution!
Stop Obama Enterprises -
If our economic system of innovation and individual initiative is to survive and stand ready to tackle the enormous challenges that face America and the world, we must not allow the government to takeover American businesses. Government run anything is a initiative, motivation, innovation, efficiency, freedom killing slug.
Support freedom – boycott General Motors, Chrysler, Citi-Bank and any other enterprise feeding off the taxpayer’s.
NOTE: I will be back online in a month or so. Out of Country with no phone or internet access.
