Grate pookie, she mentioned that.

Lots of flags around Saturday







This lady passed out a bunch of American Flags

Gold Star Father Mark Crowley was there with his wife. This is one cool guy, he traveled part way on one of the MAF caravans and shows up at almost all of the events to support the troops.

That is awesome Diva Singer Diane Nagy on the left. She belts out some powerful Patriotic Songs.

Does it surprise anyone else like me that none of the motorcycles weren't either ticketed or towed away by the city of Bezerkley??

Great seeing Melanie Morgan again. Since KSFO in San Francisco canned her, I haven't heard much from her.

God Bless You Melanie......

At one point Mel pointed (redundant I know) to across the street.


She was pointing at the fairies on bikes


They were swarming around the trash cans like flies.

I wish I had a better picture of this truck. I think it's a 1956 or so Chevy.


It had four flags on it, an American Flag and I believe the other 3 were of various branches of our Military
Behind that was a pickup with a sound system on it that a Patriot brought for the event. He is a neat guy, he bought the equipment and one of his sons ran it.

When Gold Star Father Mike Anderson, Sr. (Who's son Mike Anderson, Jr. was KIA in Iraq), Melanie greeted him warmly. They have been at many events together.


Here are a few more pitures of them together



Now for the formal picture of Mel, Mike and Diana.
Mike had to take his sunglasses off...





Then I had to get them all smiling at the same time...

This is Gold Star Mother Diane Layfield. Her son was KIA fighting for our security in 2004

She gave a very heartfelt speech supporting out Military and their mission.
This is the back of her shirt showing information about her Brave Son.

I didn't quite get the full story, but that bottle of water has something to do with the Patriotic Citizens that guard our border in lieu of the government doing it.

They sure had a good laugh over it.

I'm always impressed by people that have real cameras.

We asked her who she represented, and which side she supported. (Because there were about 40 code pink, world can't wait and various other communist anti-Americans there)

She said she was just documenting the event, and wouldn't say any more.

Well, except to say she was from Pinch Me Media or something like that.

She said she didn't have a card, but she could leave a mark...I passed on that.

The Berkeley anti-American guy was only interested in communicating with her chest. I guess he doesn't know what ears are for.

Har, I take pictures so don't usually have any of me.

I believe the one you were thinking of was this one, taken in Crawford in '05 or so.

Taken by a Freeperette whom shall remain nameless...

It worked well for infiltrating Sheehan and Fonda events, and driving the clowns crazy.

LOL

I look almost normal these days...

Here is part of Melanie Morgans report from her website MelanieMorgan.Com

Thunder Strike in Berkeley: Victory Achieved! PDF E-mail
Written by Melanie Morgan   
Saturday, 21 June 2008

Despite the massive heat wave rolling through the San Francisco Bay Area, (tempertures nearly 100 in Berkeley where it rarely cracks 65) hundreds of bikers from all around the western part of the United States rumbled through the East Bay Saturday to stand in solidarity with the United States Marine Corps, under attack from anarchists to cross-dressing she/she's from Code Pink.

 

(KCBS report here.)

As I pulled up to Shattuck Square, I was on the phone with nationally syndicated talk show host Monica Crowley, doing a live broadcast about Thunder Strike from EaglesUp and other pro-troopers...rounding the corner in my big honkin' SUV and nearly ran over the orange-clad jumpsuit crowd (you know, the guys at World Can't Wait who think that we are being sooo mean to terrorists at Gitmo.)

 Chronicle photo by Kurt Rogers

I was surprised to hear the name-calling that began as soon as they caught sight of me in my cammo t-shirt and jeans. "Melanie Morgan loves war! Melanie Morgan supports rape! Melanie Morgan supports torture."

Geez, I was so pleased. Think of it --the honor of being heckled by some of the most notorious anti-American, violence prone, George Soros funded groups on the political stage today.

The full article is at her website, MelanieMorgan.Com

antiunion person, Morgan is still quite active with her website, and also as Chairman of Move America Forward.

She has also been filling in for some very prominent Talk Show Hosts occasionally.

Yes he looks Grate!

He seemed to be anxious to get out to a rally and be there to Support Our Troops and the Military.

I had a good time hanging out with him and his family on the weekend.

Yea, I almost always forget to hand someone my camera and take a picture of me.

But sometimes I do:

This was taken by a MAFer. Danny, the Samoan Blogger.

Me and terrorist supporter Susie Benjamin and Buzz Patterson.

Buzz asked her to whistle Yankee Doodle Dandy, and instead she whistled the Cuban National Anthem.

Taken last Oct, '07.

These pictures are from Zombietime:

At one point one of the no-nonsense Berkeley cops gave a World Can't Wait organizer a talking-to.


After a tiff, the cop decided to give him a citation for an infraction of some kind, and the WCW honcho gave him a classic "You have got to be kidding me" look.
When Melanie Morgan was leaving, Diana Nagy and I walked her through the "gauntlet" of terrorist supporting commies as they yelled at her saying she supports murder and rape.

As soon as we got past them, 2 Berkeley Police Officers were jogging towards her to give her an escort to her car.

The guy in the picture was stalking her, and pulled back when he saw that the cops were protecting her.

I filmed the last part of it.

I am going to try to get some of my video up later.

You and Pete Kessler had the two most magnificent beards in the history of Freeperdom. As with you, Pete's beard caught the libs off guard when we were doing our street corner freeping in the Bubba campaign days. They were puzzled because he looked like he belonged with them on their side of the street.

I understand he's clean-shaven now.....he should have saved the beard for the Freeper Museum located in the Smithsonian. Where the Freeper Museum is located in the Smithsonian, I can't say, as it's top secret known only to Scott McClellan.

I can't wait for some good freeping on the sunny, palm-lined thoroughfares in the Sunshine State. I'm hoping Obama comes to Orlando or Tampa before November. The Florida Chapters gang will greet him with open arms, oh yah, baby.

Melanie Morgan thanks the Berkeley Police Dept.
From her Website:

It was an awesome day. Congratulations to everyone who took a stand today, and waved the red, white, and blue.

(An aside- I want to personally thank the two Berkeley police officers who escorted Diana Nagy and me to our cars after the pro-troop rally was over. One officer (who shall remain nameless) and I got off to a rocky start at the beginning of the protests back in February. I was touched that he ensured my safety through the nutball crowd, hard feelings forgotten. Thank you Berkeley P.D. !!!)

Dang near got me with that one. Tummy took a heave looking at what’s her face. She should have been stuck in a corner as a kid. Or maybe she was, and they never let her out. If we’d been on the playground, I’m sure I would have smacked her. And I was a shy, quiet, petite kid.

Good pic of you, though!

"I can't wait for some good freeping on the sunny, palm-lined thoroughfares in the Sunshine State. I'm hoping Obama comes to Orlando or Tampa before November. The Florida Chapters gang will greet him with open arms, oh yah, baby."

EGGZACTLY. And what a 2-fer that would be if the other Saul Alinsky Rules For Radicals" "protegee, Mrs. Clinton, showed up with him!!! Whoo Hoo!!!! bttt

We believe in American Exceptionalism down here!! And as patriots who love and will defend the USA and the ideals for which she stands, we don't look kindly on blame-America-first race-baiter FRONT MEN from the corrupt south side of Chicago coming down here to play all the divisive play cards in their trick-bag.

HEY NOBAMA! WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE! WE HAVE YOUR NUMBER!!

BTW! I still have the poster in my garage that you used in Orlando the last time Algore showed up here with Lieberman. Since it's such a good all-around protest sign in case of 'RAT infestations, do you want to use it again if Obamamessiah shows up down here? In case you don't remember which sign I'm talking about, here it is:
