Not sure about what the NORTHERN California Bush-haters have planned...
...but the SOUTHERN California moonbats appear to have been caught flat-footed, as it were:
Update
by FYI Tuesday, Apr. 18, 2006 at 1:18 PM

The local chapters of the larger national organizations opposed to the Bush Regime are NOT planning to mobilize for this.

So its up to local and the smaller grassroots groups to organize.

HOW TERRIBLE!!! After all, the MSM thought it was 'rude' of Vice President Cheney to wear sunglasses yesterday during Hu's speech, and the MSM thought it 'just terrible' that BUSH let this protester in to protest, (as if he had any thing to do with it)

So in my humble opinion, this is "JUST TERRIBLE" that people would protest OUR PRESIDENT!!!

But you won't hear a word of upset over these crack pots protesting our President, thats ok, but heaven forbid, don't let people protest a "killer" like HU.....

...Bush has devoted much of his public time this week to speeches on his initiative, culminating in the Cisco appearance, which will include a panel discussion with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cisco CEO John Chambers, a San Jose State University student and education leaders focused on training a more skilled workforce.

When Air Force One touches down at Moffett Field early Friday afternoon, it will mark the president's fourth visit to Silicon Valley, though he has made it to San Jose only once before, in 2002. He also is making a stop at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, home to many of his early advisers. None of Friday's events are open to the public...

-- snip --

...But anti-war protesters are planning to carpool from as far away as San Francisco to meet the president's motorcade at Cisco and another protest is planned at Stanford University. An immigrant rights news conference, originally set for Thursday in downtown San Jose, was moved to today, in front of Cisco headquarters.

San Jose is the first stop on a four-day visit to California, Bush's longest yet as president. After Cisco, he will travel by a Marine One helicopter to a reception organized by former Secretary of State George Shultz at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. Several Hoover fellows have been key economic advisers, and it was through Hoover that the president was introduced to Condoleezza Rice, his current secretary of state. He then will helicopter to St. Helena, where he will spend the night before heading to Sacramento on Saturday to tout fuel-cell technology.

Then he moves to Southern California to visit with military families Sunday and give a speech on immigration reform Monday.

President Bush is coming! (Counter-protest to support President Bush in Napa Valley)
April 19, 2006 | Sonoma County Republican Party
Posted on 04/19/2006 10:26:59 PM PDT by Hetty_Fauxvert

Dear Fellow Republicans,

As you have probably heard, President Bush is coming to Napa County, very near to us!

As you have also probably heard, there are going to be many counter demonstrators out to harass him.

The Napa County Republican Party has organized a couple of rallies to show our opposition to his critics and to show our support for President Bush.

We received the following message from The Napa County Republicans:

Sonoma County Republican Party

http://www.sonomagop.org/

President Bush is coming to Napa Valley this Friday evening! He will be staying at Meadowood Resort on Friday and leaving Saturday a.m. This is an exciting time to come out and show support for our president.

Supporters will be meeting at the intersection of DeerPark and Silverado Trail. Please park on Deer Park west of Silverado Trail. There is a fruit stand on that corner. We will meet Friday, starting at 4p.m.- 7 p.m.

We will be back there Saturday from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. (pray for sunshine). Please come out wearing red and white or blue. Please make supportive signs, come and have fun!

There will be protesters located about 1 mile away near the entrance to Meadowood. I have it on good word that there could be 2000-5000 protesters most wearing black - joining hands in a life chain in protest. We can join hands in support of our president! Please tell as many people as you can and come!

Blessings,

Debbie Dornaus

Bush to Speak in Irvine on Monday
(Heads Up Orange County,CA)

Orange County Register ^ | April 21, 2006 | staff
Posted on 04/21/2006 2:32:38 PM PDT by kellynla

President Bush is extending his weekend trip to California to speak Monday in Irvine on the volatile issue of immigration reform.

Bush will speak to the Orange County Business Council between 8 and 9 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency Irvine, according to Myal Greene, spokesman for Rep. John Campbell, R-Irvine.

The president has repeatedly said he favors a comprehensive approach to immigration reform, one that strengthens borders and includes a guest-worker program that matches "willing workers with jobs that Americans won't do." That position puts him at odds with many Republicans in Orange County, including Campbell, who plans to attend the event in his district.

The majority of GOP House members oppose a guest-worker plan...

Perfect except Bush is all about amnesty & I think he will take action to keep the wall from being built.

This administration has turned me away from the Republican party. 6 years of R's in control & we have seen spending go out of control, government growth & enabled open borders. No thanks, I am now voting 3rd party unless it is someone like McClintock or Tancredo.

Protesters force Bush to move Stanford meeting
Mercury News ^ | April 21, 2006
Posted on 04/21/2006 7:19:36 PM PDT by santorumlite

Protesters force Bush to move Stanford meeting President Bush's visit to Stanford University's Hoover Institution was quickly moved to another location after more than 1,000 protesters converged around the Hoover tower.

The White House said the protesters blocked the only road into the central areaof the campus where Hoover is located, which forced a meeting with several Hoover fellows to be moved to the campus home of former Secretary of State George Shultz, a Hoover fellow who organized the gathering.

The motorcade instead traveled to the house, which is on the outer edge of campus. The change in plans delayed the president's arrival by about 15 minutes. Protesters said they were disappointed that the President would not see them and accused the President of sneaking around to avoid them.

I'd like to see these people arrested and seriously charged one of these days. I'd also like to see some of them -- no, many of them -- badly hurt while resisting arrest. Unless that happens, these incidents will only get worse, and the president of the U.S. will look more and more like a lame duck, which we can't afford as a nation.

Anyone heard of a pro Bush group that thwarted a "direct action" plot by anarchists to impede the President's motorcade in West Sacramento yesterday? (like San Jose the day before) All the media folks were with protesters a block from the President's visit. The only organized support group was on the other side of Industrial Blvd. and on the motorcade's route.

I checked a site that announced they would welcome the president in West Sacramento but there's nothing on their website Operation Homefront

Typical incompetence.

I loved what the Minuteman spokesperson told the LA Times about not demonstrating at Bush's Irvine visit tomorrow. He claimed Bush wasn't "worth the trouble." What a joke.

Not into any political spin. Just sniffing for news others won't report. A police source said this Operation Homefront group was there with a good size group. She would not comment on the anarchists other than to say, agencies responded appropriately to a tip.

You don't have the news if you don't understand what's driving it. If conservatives don't demonstrate, or don't demonstrate when or where they say they will, or have a lousy turnout, or demonstrate ineffectively, you need to understand why.

If 50 people welcome a president while 500 protest him, does that suggest the supporters are ineffective? If their only intent is to show the president their support versus being in the media spotlight, is that foolish in your view?

A crowd of 50 supporting Bush in California isn't bad, but it isn't great. Sure, it's nice for him to see some supporters here. But if they don't get any media coverage, and the Rats (as always) do, Bush supporters are demoralized. Conservatives, even many conservative activists, are always making excuses for not doing enough. I'm not one of them. I don't pretend to be a huge activist, but I do much more than most and I believe in "supersizing it" every time. Not talking to the media is rarely smart in politics.

A ping is when one FReeper alerts one or more other FReepers to a thread, or to a specific post on a thread.

You can do this by hitting the blue "Reply" under someone's post, which brings up a reply form. Then you list multiple names in the "To:" box and write "Ping" in the "Your Reply" box. The recipients will receive a link to the thread on their "ping" page.

You can access your ping page by going to the top of the Forum and clicking on the word "Ping". It will bring up a page listing every post you have made and every reply or ping others have sent to you.
