March for Justice II After Action Report and Photo Thread
Saturday, April 9, 2005 | Kristinn

Posted on 04/09/2005 9:59:39 AM PDT by kristinn

First, I want to thank all the FReepers who were able to attend and to all who contributed to the March for Justice II. It wouldn't have happened without you. I also want to thank our cosponsor, the Coalition for a Fair Judiciary. Our speakers were excellent and I thank them for standing with us. Most of all, thanks to Jim Robinson for all he does.

The March for Justice II was a success, even though we didn't accomplish our goal for attendance. We thought 100 to 200 people would attend, in fact there were between 40 and 50--almost all of them FReepers.

The purpose of the rally was to urge the Senate to employ the constitutional option with regard to the filibusters of judicial nominees and to call on the judiciary to respect the Constitution.

We had four goals for the day: hold a modest sized rally on Capitol Hill on a work day, get other like-minded conservative leaders and groups involved, lobby senators to support the constitutional option and to get media coverage of our efforts.

We had varying degrees of success for each goal. As I said, we wish more people were able to attend but we don't have the financial resources to bus people in like the left. However, everyone I spoke to afterward who attended was very enthusiastic about the day.

The Coalition for a Fair Judiciary helped with getting other like-minded conservative groups to send speakers. Most of our speakers came through their efforts. Hopefully we can build on relationships founded and renewed to help with our efforts on the judiciary and other areas where we have common ground.

All of our announced speakers appeared at the rally, except for Roy Innis who was unable to attend due to illness.

The speakers all gave great speeches. The prepared text of Congressman Billybob's speech was posted on FR Thursday night. Most of the other speakers, if I recall correctly, spoke extemporaneously.

After the rally, Niger Innis led a delegation to three senators' offices to lobby in support of the constitutional option. The offices were those of Sen. Warner, Sen. McCain and Sen. Allen.

FReepers also visited their home state senators' offices. At least one was able to speak to a senator in person as they walked down a hallway. I stayed behind at the rally site to supervise the loadout of equipment, so I hope those FReepers will tell the stories of their adventures.

The response from the media was modest, but we did as well as could be expected. There were four news cameras and one documentary crew that covered the rally (Fox News, WBAL-TV and a West Virginia station); one domestic print reporter (Roll Call); and one reporter from the Ukraine were present. A reporter for Family News in Focus called to get information on the rally and ran a story mentioning it.

I did two radio interviews that afternoon. One was Blanquita Cullum's show on Radio America where the main subject was the rally. The other was on WWRL-AM 1600 in New York City on a different topic where I got in a mention of the rally.

An unintended bonus for us was that the liberals were so scared about our little gathering they sent a group of counter-protesters over to march and chant on the perimeter of the rally. The counter-protesters outnumbered us by a few dozen, but we weren't bothered. We were standing up for the Constitution while they were supporting rule by judicial fiat.

I'll close by thanking and listing the speakers who gave impassioned and very informative speeches at the rally. In order of scheduled appearance, they were:

Ken Connor, Chairman, Center for a Just Society
The Honorable Tom Parker, Justice, Alabama Supreme Court
Gary Marx, Executive Director, Judicial Confirmation Network
Dr. Gary Cass, Center for Reclaiming America
Manuel Miranda, National Coalition to End Judicial Filibusters
Jeff Ballabon, Center for Jewish Values
William Greene, Founder and President, RightMarch.com
John Armor, Esq.
George Landrith, President, Frontiers of Freedom
Kay Daly, President, Coalition for a Fair Judiciary
Niger Innis, National Spokesman, Congress of Racial Equality
Roy Innis, National Chairman and CEO, Congress of Racial Equality (canceled due to illness)
Rep. Steve King (Iowa)

Unfortunately, I haven't seen any footage of the march, but I did watch a press conference on c-span with Manuel Miranda and Kay Daly---THEY were quite impressive---

Also, Fox DID show the dems in front of the Supreme Court, I guess because there were senators in that protest--

I hate to say this, but after reading here on FR this morning that the GOP senators are thinking of backing off of the personal accounts in Soc. Security reform, I don't see how we can count on them for implementing the "constitutional option" regarding judicial nominees.

I seems they are more interested in appeasing and compromising than taking advantage of the "majority status" that WE the voters worked so hard to give them!

I am looking forward to pics of the march, though and I read Congressman Billybob's speech and it was a keeper!, very, very good!

Thanks so much for representing not just Freepers but ALL Conservatives--all Americans!

We must keep the pressure on until we get our worthy judges confirmed! We MUST use the Constitutional Option--and use it NOW!

Thanks again, Kristinn, Congressman Billybob and Jim!

Thank YOU Kristinn, for your tireless work on behalf of FR and The Conservative Movement!!!  It was truly a pleasure meeting you.
 
I too wish we had better turn out, but as you stated we don't have George Soros bank rolling a bus full of marijuana addicted, art school drop outs to be on hand.
 
The PA Contingent, as has been mentioned, had a brush with horror as we walked between Rick Santorum and Arlen Specter's office.  Marylander, St. Johan Tetzel, his wife and wonderful children, and I were headed down a hall way when we heard "EXCUSE US!!!  EXCUSE US-EXCUSEUS!!!" barked behind us.
We turned and were appalled to see Hillary Clinton blitzing down the hallway with a staff member and two Secret Service Agents.
To my untrained eye, she appeared to have taken some botox recently if I compare how I saw her with the cover of The Real Hillary Clinton, but that's conjecture.  What clearly is not conjecture is her extremely large butt.  I'd never noticed or heard about that feature, but she must be extremely comfortable sitting down.
FReeper Interesting Times later asked if we'd taken a picture, but of course we all know, Hillary doesn't show up on film.
It was an honor and a privilege to break bread later with Jim Rob and so many other FReepers including Dr. Raoul, TabiCats, Firebrand, Proud2beconservativeinNJ, Shetland and her daughters, synchro, and countless others.
 
A wonderful time was had by all and I truly look forward to attending the next FReep!

That's why we've got to keep after them.

There were several public events on both sides of the judiciary issue in D.C. this week. With all the proper attention being paid to the passing of the Pope, following on the two week frenzy over Terri Schiavo's fate, our effort got overshadowed--even on FR.

However, the effort was far from neglible or unimportant. Good things came from it, and if we follow through more good will flow from our work.

I shoulda gone, I guess. It's not nearly as convenient as it was when I was working down in Maryland at the time of the March for Justice I, but I really could have done it. Back then, I was only lurking, and the March got me out of my shell. Those were serious times, with a president who had no respect for the rights of Republicans.

Oh, please don't confuse my disgust with the media or the GOP with a lack of appreciation for what ya'll did in the March for Justice---I think you guys did great, and I am sure there are hundreds of Freepers like myself that would have loved to have been able to go and march---

I have seen/heard Byron York on several shows this week advestising his new book about the LEFT-WING conspiracy, which states just how much money is behind the dems right now---the amount available to Reid, Pelosi and friends is staggering!!!

I mean, just look on TV--the have national commercials about the filibuster problem AND personal accounts on Soc. Security (BTW, being financed by AARP which is sickening!)

SO, I guess that means we have to me more imaginative and persistent, I guess---count me in!!!

I watched a broadcast on CSPAN on the topic of judicial activism in the past couple of days. It was OUTSTANDING and very exciting! One of the participants at your event was Tom Parker. He is also involved in the group which aired on the CSPAN program.

I urge everyone to go to their web site www.stopactivistjudges.org. Look at their executive board. It is full of some very high quality people. Among others, the executive committe includes:

Rev. Jerry Falwell

Alveda King (King for America)

Rabbi Daniel Lapin (Toward Tradition)

Dave Meyer (Joyce Meyer Ministries)

Fr. Frank Pavone (Priests for Life)

Dr. Rick Scarborough (Vision America – Interim Chairman, Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration)

Phyllis Schlafly (Eagle Forum)


There are links to bios for the executive board members on the site.


I wish to thank EVERYONE, kristinn, who was involved in this March for Justice. You are all heros to me. Thank you for holding the torch of Freedom high!

True, and now we have Marxist-Democratic Senators and Judges who have not respect for the Constitution or Americans.

Granted the Left has a web of financial resources, but where are the conservatives? I'm sure they aren't all poor like me lol
Surely there's a way to get some concentrated support to be able to make more high-profile appearances and protests.
Perhaps the problem is alot of small groups who are not coordinating finances and effort for specific events to make a better impact, especially in the media.
Can't we have, or is there one that could take the reins, an over-arching organization that can make better use of people power and whatever finances are available? We've got some logistical and organizational hurdles we need to get over to make some better progress.

I agree with you

If you hadnt already done so, please check out my posts 24 and 28. There really are some very high powered folks out there wanting to get this thing organized and off the ground out in the grass roots! Judge Moore, Alan Keyes, Lamar Smith, and quite a number of VERY capable people were serving on panel presentations during their conference on this issue. I dont know, but I think the stopactivistjudges.org folks would welcome the kind of spirit and commitment us FREEPERs could bring to this effort.

We thought 100 to 200 people would attend, in fact there were between 40 and 50--almost all of them FReepers.

Frankly, that's not a bad turnout considering it was held on a weekday when most are working. How many came from CFJ as their site boasts a coalition of 75 grassroots organizations?

Thank you so much for representing us. I wanted so much to be at this rally and the Terri Schiavo rally representing my state. I wasn't able this time but this is the closest I've came to dropping everything for activism in a decade. I never thought I'd want to attend another rally again, and I dont but these causes are so important and this group is so good that it's all but inevitable.

Thanks to all of you for being there and representing us. Our numbers will grow, they always do when the causes are this just.

kristinn, thank you for all you did to organize the March for Justice II. It was wonderful to meet you, Jim Robinson and sooooo many wonderful Freepers from different parts of our great nation. The speakers were absolutely outstanding! It was very impressive to have people from Calif, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Virginia (freeper Sova...(don't remember the entire screen name)is a dynamo!!) with state flags flying....an awesome sight.
Carrying letters to our Senators' offices was a great idea! Myself, Shetland (?sp)and her daughters (who flew from Miami just for the day!)delivered letters to our Florida Senators. We also stopped in to the offices of Sen. Obama and Bunning and we joined the Pa. delegation in Sen. Hatch's office. At each office, we told the Senators staff members we were looking for a fair up or down vote by the full Senate and ALL Senators should have the right to represent their constituents. We met Sen. Lugar in the hallway. I introduced us, explained why we were there ...told him, we're not looking for rubber stamp approvals but want a fair discussion and a fair up or down vote by the full Senate. Asked that he urge his colleagues to give EVERY Senator the freedom to represent their constituents. Sen. Lugar was very cordial and said "thank you for your testimony".

Today, at a Republican Women's Club meeting, I spoke about FR's March for Justice. I handed out copies of a list (which I think Connie gave out at the March)of GOP Senators who are uncommitted to ending the judicial filibusters. I also gave the toll free number to the Capitol which JulieRNR provided. The President of this Women's Club attended the Coalition for Fair Judiciary Conference in DC. The two of us URGED all members of the Club to begin calling, emailing all Senators to end the filibuster threats and allow full Senate to vote.
The Pinellas County Republican group meets on Monday evening and I'll ask Chairman to provide members with the toll free number and ask that they call Senators.

Again, Jim Robinson and Kristinn thank you for taking the initiative on this critical issue. And, NautiNurse, thank you for introducing me to so many good freepers and fellow patriots. Thanks too for the great company as we 'tore' around DC (my shins are still hurting...lol).
