Freepers, other citizens storm Sen. Specter's Office on Porkulus
|Written by Melanie Morgan|

Sen. Arlen Specter must feel like one lucky man today. He wasnt in his Capitol Hill offices when MAF Chairman Melanie Morgan, Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee, Freepers and Free Republic founder Jim Robinson, and other patriotic citizens stormed his office to demand he reverse his position supporting the porkulus bill, aka the Barack-Blowing-Through- Dollars-Scheme.
MAF, as you know, is a protroops organization, and it is our opinion that this legislation will hurt veterans healthcare - not to mention every other American.
Were really in town for our big press conference on Tuesday, when we release our commercial opposing President Obamas decision to close Gitmo.
But we kept ourselves busy today. Melanie was at her finest, when we arrived at Specters office. For those of you who dont know Specter, hes a flip-flopping, spineless bureacrat who calls himself a Republican. Hes also one of the traitors who supports Obamas spendulus bill. This is why he was a target for Mondays action, spurred by Kirstinn Taylor of Free Republic.
Melanie and Jim Robinson asked to see the Senator. Specters front-office staff need to go back to kindergarten to get their manners tuned up. either that or they should go to work at Wal-Mart to pick up some tips from their greeters. A secretary, who wasnt happy to see American patriots, refused to answer where the Senator was hiding. Jim, wearing his Navy cap, asked over and over about the Senators whereabouts, but the secretary wasnt helping. It was distressing to see a Navy veteran being treated with such disrespect by a Senators staff.
Well, the cold-shoulder was too much for Melanie, who decided to take matters into her own hands. She stepped to the closed door leading to Specters office and the offices of his staffers, and flung it open. I didnt take notes on what she said, but it went something like this:
Come out! We want to talk to somebody right now!!
The secretary didnt like this. You cant go in there, she warned Melanie, who promptly ignored her.
Sombody come out here right now!!! We want to talk to you. Now!!!
Specters chief of staff had finally had enough and came out to face the American citizens who wanted to redress their government official.
Melanie stepped toward him and unleashed a wave of complaints that hit him like a typhoon.
Again, I didnt take notes, but it went something like this:
Tell Specter to stop acting like a liberal. We are watching him and were not going to let him get away with this!
Others had a few things to add to that. Debbie Lee introduced herself and handed the chief of staff a card with her son, Marcs, picture on it. He was the first Navy SEAL to give his life in Iraq, she explained.
Liz Colby Harp brought her five homeschooled children so Specter could see whom he is saddling with trillions of dollars of debts. She was gracious, intelligent and dead on with her remarks.

I like to leave some out to encourage readers to go the website of conservative pundits because there is usually many more good writings on their websites.
He's probably unaware of the fact that there's a provision in there that's going to cut him off from anymore experimental surgery.
Those RINOs live on experimental surgery!
I love what she did. We pay for that stupid staff and we expect results.
Great post and link-
Malanie deserves our applause!
He took down the notes with a shaky hand and gave a smile that you might only see on a condemned man as he is walking to the gas chamber.
I hope reality started dawning on him real quick. Next time it may be an armed posse with torches, pitchforks, semiautomatic weapons, and plenty of hanging rope.
TO WASHINGTON BUREAUCRATS: WE ARE TIRED OF THIS CRAP!!!
Collins, too, on Today. I was left thinking (after hearing it on the radio) who would ever vote for this moron? Cloture means that they now just need a simple majority in the Senate and then the House can replace all that Dem pork that was removed in the Senate. Then the House votes on it. Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be wondering why we all thought the USA was the best place to live. By the time they are adults, the USA will be just another Socialist country and as miserable as all the rest. Taps anyone?
Maybe God will call him home immediately.
Set thou a wicked man over him:
and let Satan stand at his right hand. When he shall be judged,
let him be condemned: Let his days be few;
and let his prayer become sin.
and let another take his office.
But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord,
I feel sad that the Republicans have such senior senators that don't have a clue, but I guess it says a lot about how left Pennsylvania had gone over the years.
Specter is going to be on R.J. Harris at WHP 580 Harrisburg, tomorrow morning. I sent R.J. an email and told him to ask Arlen what he planned to do once we retired him from office next year.
My thoughts exactly, I saw her and said gee, someone would have to slip her a brain cell so she could have one.
Steele has to take the lead here and cut these people off. As far as I am concerned stripping them all of their committee jobs would be a nice first step.
If you can’t stand on your principles, what do you stand for.
Frankly I think Spector had way to much chemo ...
I didn’t get to hear him on Hannity’s show today—had to leave before he came on. Heard Steele though—basically he was saying that Specter, Collins, and Snowe are putting themselves before country. I guess it’s not surprising. It is a shame though when someone has been in the Senate as long as Specter and is as old as he is and he is still putting himself before country. At this point in life, you would think the man would just do what is right. Maybe he doesn’t know how to at this late date.
The guy is just way dumb -— and tries to sound so smart.
Steele should ask they be stripped of their committee assignments and reduced to back benchers. But no one has the balls.
So how is Steele going to attract new recruits to the party with these kooks?
Thanks to Jim, Melanie and all the others who participated. Wish I could have been there!
I heard him today on Hannity and it was very sad. He really does seem to be clueless and not doing this on purpose.
I wrote to Steele last night. We should all write to him and let him know that conservatives are dying for straight talk. Tell him to keep it up:
I know this makes the protestors feel good and I appreciate their efforts to do good, but it has no effect on these Senators unless you can prove you are a voter in their state. I am told by staffers that they pay no attention unless they get letters,not e-mails or phone calls, from their constituents or personal contact when they are back in their home state.
You ‘born agains’ are funny.
Great report. Are you going to do the same and Snowe’s, Collins’ and Corker’s office.
I pray you do!
It's not the individual senators, it's the people rising up.
You have expressed their propaganda quite well, thank you.
Follow it, or follow the people to freedom
Future victims of the Obama Porkulous Spending Bill
Written by Melanie Morgan Monday, 09 February 2009
Future victims of the Obama porkulous spending bill protest at Senator Specters office today in our nations Capitol. This mom drove in from Alexandria with her five home-schooled children, determined to do everything she can to stop this immoral bill.
Fantastic picture and FR member family!
I listened to that segment. Hannity took the fire to him, and Specter babbled on about the bill being the least of two bad options, that he preferred McCain’s recommendation $400B will tax cuts and mortgage assistance.
My question to the obviously congnitive-failing Senator is “why don’t you stand tough and try for something closer to the McCain idea?”
If he didn't vote like this, who would even know his name.
There needs to be a price.
Donks vote like a herd ... our guys vote like dumb Spectors.
Bravo Freepers! You guys ROCK and should be an example for the rest of us. We DO need to storm these elected official’s offices and let them know WHO they work FOR!
Emails and phone calls just ain’t cutting it these days.
There's going to be a lot more of this -- Very Soon. Liberals are going to start seeing pitchfork mobs, at the very least.

....and it won't be restricted to just opening doors, either.
Enemies of America, beware! The people have HAD IT!
>>>YOU both are OUTSTANDING!!!!
You spoke for your nation today.
I’m Catholic. That has been my tagline for a while.
What’s the mom’s FReeper name?
It is very funny for any denomination. I wish him gone.
Great report. Are you going to do the same and Snowes, Collins and Corkers office.
I pray you do!
YEEEEEEEESSSSS! Please do, we would do the same if we were there...
It really is pretty simple. He just believes that government must "do something". He's simply a big government Rino. He's incapable of considering for a moment that the right thing to do might be for the congress to REDUCE spending and REDUCE taxes, or at the very least if they're not going to do that, to do NOTHING.
What I really enjoyed today was how offended these politicians get when offered a question or opinion by their voters.
They don’t like the heat a bit.
I wish I could have made it over to the Snowe and Collins’ offices, but as you can see, the two-year-old was getting tired...
I agree! And it is always a bit of a boost to repeat Our Lord’s words back to Him. Let’s Him know that we are His and He is in control.
The GOP Chairman, STAND UP AND SPEAK UP!!!
Maybe he’s worried? I sent an email to him last week, and never got a response until today; coincidence? (I’ve also tried a million times to get through via phone without any success).
ENEMIES OF AMERICA, BEWARE THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD IT,,, LET’S GET IT STARTED, NOW
I think it failed in 1964.
How else can you explain how stupid he sounded.
As far as I can remember, he's always sounded like that... oh might have a touch of dementia now, but in his case, it would be hard to tell the difference.
OUTSTANDING post, thread, effort! FR’s finest, America’s finest!
I heard it too. Hard to believe someone that educated and supposedly BRIGHT could make such ludicrous remarks so ignorant of historical fact. (BTW, Obama made the same remark just a minute ago. Obama went even further to say, he thought these disputes had been resolved. Don't Liberals ALWAYS think disputes between Liberals and conservatives have been resolved in favor of their opinion?) Therefore, I don't. Specter is a Liberal and a socialist who walks the walk and talks the talk. To him, Obama and socialists like them, this is a prime opportunity to expand government and finish the revolution begun in the sixties.
