Kristinn, Da Man !
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.
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.
You’re very kind. Thank you.
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.
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."
Good work to you.
LOL! I just looked. Happy moonbatting, indeed!
I can see it now.
Freeper Photoshop Contest using her mug shot. May the best Freeper Artist win.
I gave your article a fast scan, not finding any. Losing my touch? lol
Kristinn, you ROCK!
...well, at least, you yodel a little...
BUMP! Well Done.
Good show!! Looks like word got through one way or another that these vile traitors need to be stopped in their document fraud and other nefarious strategems. Next I’d like to see some of them seriously prosecuted....
First paragraph, second word.
technically a typo yes, but not misspelled just the wrong tense..only half a demerit!
Oh, and bravo for what you did and continue to do!!
CODE PINK = LOSERS ! COMMIES ! OUR ENEMY’S COMRADES !
Now this is a woman who obviously does not like getting her picture taken.
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??
Where does it say she had a phony press pass?
Nice work, kristinn.
I think the Secret Service knows you’re a real patriot.
Yeah, I saw that.. Is it legal for their pictures to be posted? Would it be considered ‘against safety’?
I sure as heck wouldn’t post it! :/
I dont know how to do a word in bold print!If you are using FireFox, you can download the add-on 'BBCodeXtra' (that's how I do it) and then all you would have to do is highlight what you want changed... and it is done for you ;) Download BBCodeXtra
Three cheers for justice and the SS.
Thank you :)
I think somewhere on here is posted a thread written by Code Pink on how to create press passes...
We even have our own. I learned from this one. The commands are mostly single letters, bracketed...<>
Guilty, but sentenced to community service
(in some field other than edumication)
(Oh, and she has to wear a bag over her face)
(and lose a LOT of weight.)
My work here is finished. Hiyo SILver!
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).

I love a laugh early in the morning- gets the day started right:)
Outstanding work!! I followed the link over to the code pink site, though. What a bunch of fruitcakes...yuk...I need a shower..
THIS is why I LOVE FR!!!!!!!!!!!!
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?
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.
