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!

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.

I thought the same thing: (sepErate occasSions, misspelled in this paragraph..I don’t know how to do a word in bold print!)

“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).”

Thanks!

And she was in fraudulent possession of a “press” pass. Democrats have been using this tactic again and again to collude with Code Pink.

They engage in conspiracy to disturb the peace.

Medea Whackjob was on O’Reilly the other night. Why he gives her air time is beyond me.

She's a teacher, huh?

I hope her students are better writers and spellers than she is.

Good work tipping off the Secret Service to their fake ID scheme. It's about time they start showing some interest in identifying and removing these terrorist-supporting radicals from secure events.

Communists believe that everyone who fought for America in the Vietnam War was a war criminal. Even those who spent years rotting in a North Vietnamese prisoner of war camp.

‘unannounced and totally spooked me by being so close to me and put a camera in my face and without permission took my photo’

So she was afraid that her picture was taken.
And she had a fake pass during a presidential candidate activity?

Could have been a lot worst outcome for her, IMHO.

Yep, one of these days Desiree or some other Code Pink flunky is going to pull a Squeaky Fromme while other Pinkos distract the Secret Service by raising a ruckus.

Best to screen them out or kick them out on sight.

Thanks for not noticing the typo or two in my article. We are our own worst editors :-)

What’s funny is the dope posted a picture of herself to go with her report. The guilty/not guilty crew on FR will have a field day with it.

The comments people posted to her on the Pinko blog are great!

I love how she spoke to Barbara Boxer’s “legeslative assistance”.

Wow—that is some teacher!

Good job, Kristinn. Yes, welcome to the secret service if they read here. Seems to me that woman should have been arrested for using a fake press pass. That is dangerous and somehow press passes should not be able to be faked. At least now the SS is aware and watching.
