FREEPER VICTORY! Secret Service Ejects Press Pass Bearing Code Pink Protester from McCain Speech
Wednesday, July 9, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/08/2008 9:38:37 PM PDT by kristinn

Who read Free Republic? Apparently the U.S. Secret Service does!

This past weekend, I posted an article alerting the Secret Service that members of the terrorist supporting group Code Pink were using fake presses to gain access to events headlined by Secret Service protectees like presumptive Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (AZ).

This morning, McCain spoke at the LULAC convention in Washington, D.C. Usually when he speaks at an event in D.C., McCain can expect to have his speech disrupted by Code Pink activists who rush the stage and heckle him from the audience and the press section.

That didn't happen today. I followed press coverage of the speech and no disturbances were reported. Now I know why.

A Code Pink protester going by the name Jennifer Tequia posted about her experience today at the McCain speech. I'll let her tell her story:

This morning I attempted to watch McCain give a speech at the LULAC convention at the Hilton.

I had a press pass to get in but not 5 minutes later was removed by Secret Service agents. The LULAC representative told me that even if I was registered he would not let me in and would not give me any reason. I got the impression that he really wanted me to be able to stay but that the Secret Service told him to have me leave.

I exited the property with no fuss and was followed out by 2-4 Secret Service agents. I was not raising a ruckus or resisting at ALL. I simply walked myself off.

A block and a half later on public sidewalk one of the agents walked up to me unannounced and totally spooked me by being so close to me and put a camera in my face and without permission took my photo.

I then later went back to the area of the Hilton and (staying across the street on public sidewalk) spoke to the press and private people. I told them that I am a teacher and came all the way across the country at my own expense for a month to try to get our nation's financial and moral priorities back on track.

I spoke about not having money for books but trillions for war. Most I spoke to very moved by my story and shared my deep worry about a new war with Iran.

The Secret Service agent showed up again and followed me around a bit. I asked him for his badge number. He refused to give it to me.

I repeatedly asked him, "Sir, what is your badge number?" and he either said, "I am doing a job" or refused to answer.

I asked him his last name and he refused.

I have posted the photo of this man so you can see the image of a man who is in violation of his duties - he removed me without cause, followed me on public property on two seperate occassions and refused to identify himself (which makes me strongly suspect he was not doing what he was supposed to do and feared me reporting him).

McCain was whisked inside so I didn't even get to take his photo or see him at all.

That war criminal knows how to be seen when it works to his benefit and not seen when it doesn't, let me tell you.

Poor Jennifer, busted with a phoney press pass. I wonder if she teaches her students how to cheat on their exams.

Looks like Medea Benjamin will have to come up with a new scheme to infiltrate Secret Service protected events.

GOOD WORK, SECRET SERVICE!

Ha! Great job, Kristinn!

Give it up, lady. The "second generation" of the '60s is getting more and more tiresome to most Americans.

Very nicely done, Kristinn!

I read your previous thread on this topic, pre-event, as it were. Wondered if indeed ANYONE would twig to such obvious forgeries, or do anything about it if they did.

WTG!

She identifies herself as a teacher, but she can't spell worth a crock!!

I also got a chance to speak with the legeslative assistance to Barbara Boxer. I told him I know she has not co-sponsored the Iran sanctions bill but where is HER counter resolution for diplomacy? What is she doing to take the next step and make it right? I was told, "You don't understand how things are done here." Sadly, I understand all too well that senators and congress members are living in a bubble and are more concerned with protecting themselves and their positions than doing what is right and just. It is not enough sometimes to vote against things. I demand that those who represent us work tirelessly to MAKE IT RIGHT. Get us books, not bombs. Anything else is an injustice and a shame to their position.

I spoke about not having money for books but trillions for war.

Sounds like she should've spent her time doing the necessary budget requests for books and supplies instead of spending her time and money trying to infiltrate events using fake press passes.

A lot of these so called liberal teachers who spend more time and effort on political campaigns than teaching should just be fired for lack of dedication and commitment to their profession and their students.

I mean, if she spent half as much energy campaigning for more awareness in her school district and state about the lack of funding for books she might be able to effect some kind of meaningful change, but the truth is that she's probably sabotaged her own students in order to prove that funding the war is immoral.

Maybe there’s hope yet, just when we get most discouraged.

Now - if all the Muslim Students Association hooligans could be similarly thwarted on college/university campuses across this country at speeches by those such as David Horowitz, Brigitte Gabriel, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, etc.

“I also got a chance to speak with the legeslative assistance to Barbara Boxer.”

I hear ‘ya on the spelling thing, but in this case, inconsequential, considering the subject - BB is disgusting. I watched a lot of the senate debates today on the sen. intel. committee revised FISA vs. the lunatic “alternative” proposed by Chris Dodd/Russ Feingold, w/BB being so impatient to speak that she asked two others to yield time to her.

MAJOR barf on all three of these senators.

more awareness in her school district and state about the lack of funding for books she might be able to effect some kind of meaningful change

Comment:

Did this dingbat say what state she was from.

The schools my children attend certainly do not have a shortage of books.

Due to the large number of illegal alien children we even furnish breakfast twice a day and lunch all free of charge.

If this woman is a teacher and I have my doubts then she is using the power of propaganda and lies to bolster her naivete.

California doesn’t need more money spent on students we just need more accountability of where that money is being spent.

It's nice to have the latest doodads for this or that and new buildings but just how much improvement in a child's education can be adjudged from the latest and most modern classroom.

The high priced office building at our local school is nicer than 95% of the houses located in town.

Abe Lincoln got his education by firelight and he didn't turn out all that bad.

BTW we do however have a good public school.

Now, Secret Service—please keep an eye on that kook Pinko(redundant, I know) Desiree Farooz—she is an imminent threat to the President and elected officials. She should not be let in to the Capitol or anywhere in DC.

And to any new SS FR members—welcome!

Senate Intelligence ... not!”

Jo - yes, generally (although the House is SO much worse). This was about finally (after MONTHS of Pelosi etal letting FISA completely expire in the House) at least having a palatable (to me, anyway) revised bill proposed by the intel committee (vice-chair Kit Bond is from my state, and he’s argued eloquently for 7 or so months, tirelessly, for FISA). This particular issue is crucial beyond words to our national security, and now, just as they’ve come up with a tweaked version that even the House will go along with, here come Feingold and Dodd to stage a last-ditch effort to sabotage it. They may take a vote tomorrow, or Thurs. Pretty sure Rockefeller/Bond proposal will prevail, but it’s just the sheer gall of the afore-mentioned traitorous ones, putting their Bush-hating agenda ahead of the good of this country.

Of course McCain is a war criminal because he served honorably in Vietnam. Kerry isn’t, of course, because he was a “soldier with a conscious” (sarcasm)

Thanks to the New Left, the term “War Criminal” is now within the same vocabulary as “You Racist!” “You Homophobe!” “You Fascist!” or other meaningless redundancies. All brought to you by the same people who encourage those kinds of behaviors. I still wonder why anybody takes Lefty insults so seriously as they sound a lot like “meany meany poo-poo head”. The same people who laugh at us for “seeing a Communist under every bed” have no problem seeing some descendant of Adolf Hitler under every bed, themselves.
