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.

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.

Members of the media conspired with Code Pink at the GOP convention in 2004:

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

It was so easy to get into the Republican National Convention that activist Gael Murphy got in two straight nights before making national news by stripping down to her pink slip during Vice President Dick Cheney's speech. Seconds later -- enough time to get her photo taken -- security officials tackled her and hauled her away.

The 50-year-old's key to burrowing into her own personal Death Star: a media pass. Obtained from "a friend of a friend" whose media organization she won't divulge.

Secret Service spokeswoman Ann Roman did not know how activists like Murphy from the peace group Code Pink had acquired the passes. Roman said, "People who got onto the convention floor had proper credentials."

But that doesn't mean they were holding their credentials. Murphy's pass didn't have a photograph on it. Plus, the Washington, D.C., resident is a veteran disrupter, who has crashed everything from the Senate hearings on the Abu Ghraib prison debacle to the United Nations. She is able to devote substantial time to her activism thanks to her savings and "a supportive partner," she said.

On Monday and Tuesday night forays, she just walked around inside Madison Square Garden, scoping out the joint. She kept moving so as not to sit in the wrong place and be escorted out. Despite wearing a media credential, she wasn't carrying a pen, notebook or camera.

"I was just experiencing what it was like to be surrounded by a convention hall full of Republicans," Murphy said. "I was getting high on the ignorance. And it wasn't a good high."

On Tuesday, she accompanied Fernando Suarez del Solar, an Escondido (San Diego County) resident who also slipped into the convention on a borrowed media credential. Suarez's son, Jesus, was a Marine killed in Iraq in March 2003. After unfurling a sign that said, "Bush Lied. My Son Died," he managed to do a few interviews before being escorted out of the hall. He was not arrested.

On Wednesday, it was Murphy's turn. She tucked a 4-by-4-foot cloth sign reading "Cheney and Halliburton, Making a Killing in Iraq" under the waistband of her black pants. Her pink slip, with "Cheney is in bed with Halliburton and we got screwed," written on it, flopped over the sign. Covering the slip was a blue silk shirt.

She entered the Garden carrying only a shoulder purse, and cleared the one metal detector. Nobody patted her down. Her media badge was checked five different times before she made it to a bank of still photographers near the stage. Then she handed off the sign to another activist, who flashed the sign. When Murphy unbuttoned her shirt, delegates yelled, "Look! She's got Cheney and Halliburton on."

Correction:
In reality, and her true agenda:

" I spoke about not having money for books ( books to indoctrinate the impressionable mush minded sheeple about communism/Marxism/feminism/anti-Americanism ) but trillions for war. Most I spoke to very moved by my story and shared my deep worry ( that our comrades against America will be defeated ) about a new war with Iran."

There now, fixed.

They should fine her or put anyone in jail for exposing any secret service person to the public.
Correct me if I am wrong ? but ? wasn't there a bunch of nonsense and hoopla a few years ago with the MSM/Liberals/Demorats accusing the Bush administration of leaking information about a C.I.A. agent ? ..... opps, I forgot, that was what the whole Valery Blame ( Plame ) game non-sense was all about.
Isn't it amazing ? how the liberals can squawk about the leaking of information about a C.I.A. agent, and all the BS trials, waste of tax payer's money, but yet ? this liberal warp minded individual see's it her RIGHT and DUTY to expose a secret service agent to the public that would put at risk not only his or her life, but, put at risk whom ever they are protecting ?

If Codepink is a organization in co-hoots with our enemies and terrorist organizations, then ? whom ever they get their financial support from should have their financial accounts and assets frozen.

I had to throw in some little entertaining exerpts from Jennifer's blogs, as they emphasize the draw of this movement. These are the feelings behind the smiles, the costumes, the pure silliness evidenced in picture after picture. It is not the mission itself, nor the message, as much as the powerful ego-tripping, self-actualizing, edifying effect of group belongingness and participation, reinforced and intensified by media attention.

I arrived at the Code Pink house on Tuesday July 1st excited and ready to whip congress into shape.

Wednesday we were sitting in the living room watching the news when CNN stated that Bush had a press conference at the White House on the G8 summit at 10:30. It was 10:15. Me and Liz said, "Let's go!" and grabbed a banner, a bullhorn and a cab and got to the White House. We blasted Bush on the bullhorn and interacted with the public. The press were jumping the bushes with their cameras to film US, not Bush!

I gave an interview to The Wall Street Journal, Politico and New York Times.

Friday a group went to Monitcello where Bush was speaking and successfully interrupted him 8 times!!!

I went to the parade with a group dressed as pink statures of liberty and had a great time handing out candy with facts on Iran, Iraq and FISA. I got in the parade with the hari krishnas for a bit until a cop literally shoved me out =(.

Cindy (Sheehan) came over for dinner tonight to the Pink House and we all enjoyed a great discussion.

Overall my stay here so far has been amazing - I finally feel a part of politics...

I now realize just how much I don't know about politics!

This house rocks!

Serious business or Fun, Fun, Fun??

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). Uh - there is something deeply disturbing about Code Pink not getting their way, THEN posting a photo of a SECRET Service member on the Web.

They make them. That's why Kristinn called them "fake".

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).

Several things... Jennifer... God Bless America! You can falsely obtain a press pass to attend a speech by a Presidential candidate and NOT get shot... beat up... or jailed.

You had a agent following you to make sure you weren't a threat because let's be frank here... Code Pink is pretty radical. THAT my dear... is THEIR job!

I don't think they are required to identify themselves... otherwise they wouldn't be Secret Service eh?

Dear "teacher for peace" -- it isn't your choice and it never was ours. The choice for war, for terror was made by evil people. They stole that choice from us. They attacked us, again and again and again and again and again -- here in the US and all over the world. Their hatred, there hatred for peace, is what motivated the man who killed Bobby Kennedy.

Finally, on 9/11/2001 when they attacked for the nth time, and to great loss of life by us, we had to respond. We had no choice.

When you proclaim that we want war you actually support the war, for you give support and encouragement to them. You encourage the haters, those who for years and years have been honing that hatred and that love of terror and war.

You, of all people, have become the most bloody handed supporter of war -- you do not mean to be, but because of your support for those who want war and terror against us, because you insist that we not stop them, you have blood on your hands.

The blood of your own students, actually. The blood of those we love and have lost because our enemy did kill them.

Damn you for that. Please stop. Have some real love for us and your own students.
