White House Blocks TEA Party at Treasury
Fox News Live | 4/15/09

Posted on 04/15/2009 6:40:58 AM PDT by pabianice

Live now on Fox -- White House is blocking TEA Party set for the Treasury in DC,. despite the demonstration already having been granted a permit. Second TEA Party at Lafayette Park to proceed, but White House blocked the unloading of 1M tea bags.

This comes upon the DHS report warning that such demonstrations are "hate groups" that must be monitored closely as such demonstrators are "prone to owning guns and being violent."

Last night my my flying group heard a speaker who said that DHS is putting on place a plan to shut-down all general aviation in the US with such onerous and burdensome regulations that no operators will be able to conduct flying. Reportedly, new rules will ban any private pilot from demonstrating how to fly to any passengers. Insanity.

I'm sure the Founders of this country would have asked for a permit!

FUBO!

They're getting worried. Good. Government is supposed to fear the people. Sadly, vise versa has been the case for too long

What are they going to do if 20-30,000 people show up anyway? Arrest them all for being ‘extremists’?

The more citizens are denied their freedom of speech, the more likely there will actually be some hate groups established.

I am beginning to hate what I am seeing happen to America. Does that constitute hate speech? So be it.

I am a mile or so away and am going in about one hour. Nothing will stop me.

The two sites are very very close to each other. I suspect they anticipated a decent size crowd and so obtained permits for two sites. Am wearing my old red “Free Republic Events Staff” baseball cap from the glory days of algore vs. W rallies!

Hoo Hah!

As usual, elected officials do not care about we, the unwashed masses. So we have to take additional measures: http://pushbackuntil.com.

It will not be easy, but how interested are we in saving our country from an irresponsible Congress?

But of course!

They applied to KGIII for a permit to toss tea in the bay, and to wear disguises while doing so; and paid for the tea first.

They also had royal CCWs to carry the hatchets and their weapons.

And provided insurance policies to cover any damages.

And posted surety bonds, to pay for extra security during the protest.

And obtained a parade permit, and stayed on the designated route to & from the harbor.

Folks, that property belongs to ALL of you, and us. I wish I were closer to DC but it would be over a 1000 mile trek for me. You are going to be the real voice of America today. Please go! WE WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT, WE WILL NOT BE FORCED INTO SERVITUDE ANY LONGER! WE ALL HAVE THE ABILITY TO BE HEARD TODAY, BUT YOUR VOICES AT THE TREASURY WILL BE THE SHOT HEARD ROUND THE WORLD.

These times call for brave patriots! We should not fear our government, they should fear us. For too long, we have neglected the gift our Founding Fathers have bestowed with their blood, sweat, tears, and treasures. They built this country with their bare hands. We were warned that they have given us a republic, hold on to if IF WE CAN. Let it not be our generation who could not. Our children and their children deserve the right to hang on to it too.........

Interesting that they block this particular Tea Party the day of (or the day before?) the event. Not much time to make other arrangements.

“Folks, that property belongs to ALL of you, and us.”

You said it!

The last time I was in Washington we weren’t even allowed to go into the Capitol freely. They seem to have forgotten - or, more likely, simply don’t CARE that that’s *OUR* BUILDING. THIS IS *OUR* GOVERNMENT. They work for US - ** NOT ** the other way around.

Sadly, and not to put a wet blanket on things, I think 10,000,000 people could show up in Washington today, and the Obamazombie media would report it as 1,352 lunatics, and wonder if their tea bags were store brand or Lipton.

But hopefully enough of a voice can be raised today so that we can overcome the enforced silence of the media, and get some of our fellow, sheepified citizens to hear the message.

I know the snarky libs think they are being cute by calling us “teabaggers”. That’s fine by me, since they’ll be the ones being teabagged by us pretty soon. Come on, any gamer can tell you that you want to the one dishing out the teabagging, not the one being humiliated by receiving one.

“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it... There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

- Ayn Rand, ‘Atlas Shrugged’ 1957

MY GOD, isn’t it lucky that Jefferson, Washington, Adams and the rest were able to get their PERMIT for the American Revolution??!!

I seem to remember they pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, all of which were most certainly on the line. And our heroic “revolutionaries” of today are afraid to speak their minds without a permit from Big Brother. How encouraging!!
