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."
Emperor Zero is a coward.
ALl the more reason to dump tea on the treasury
this isn’t socialism folks it is communism and repression of our rights as americans....at the moment with this gov’t we are no better than 3rd world nations doing the same to their citizens....the white house is biting off more than they can chew......
What are they going to do if 20-30,000 people show up anyway? Arrest them all for being ‘extremists’?
...and the protesters are probably “clinging to religion” too.
“I’m sure the Founders of this country would have asked for a permit!”
Can I steal that for a tag line?
Geithner has to get get to the Post Office after work tonight. This is just to make sure the roads aren't blocked.
Be my guest!
Welcome to commissar obama’s America. No more freedom of assembly. What freedom will he outlaw next?
Wake up sheeple!!
DO IT ANYWAY!!
I have a great mental image of the Chicago Ceausesucs hunkered down in the White House bunker for the day.
Screw the permit you cowards. Go to the Treasury or disgrace the Founders.
So, the people’s right to FREELY AND PEACEFULLY ASSEMBLE UNDER THE US CONSTITUTION IS BEING DENIED BY THE BOLSHEVIK IN THE KREMLIN in D.C., I see.
This makes me even more determined to go down there this morning. And I am bringing my own tea bag to dump.
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!
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?
“Be in D.C. to Push Back Until!”
I gave you credit for a great tag line on my profile page.
Under what Constitutional law is the White House entitled to stifle this Freedom of Speech?
America needs to tea-bag Obama if you get my drift.
What an absolute trampling on the 1st amendment.
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.
I’ve had my tagline since early January!
So much for freedom.
Boy if I could get there in time, I’d be in a car driving there right now to assert my 1st amendment rights
What a great name for a political party for the 2010 elections. “I am a member of the TEA Party!”
These people are simply demonstrating that they don’t understand Americans.
Ban us from doing something that is a right,
we’ll do it in your face, and more people will show up to do it.
Hate groups? That is ridiculous. DHS is the hate group here.
“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.
Do it anyway. Jury Nullification is a bitch
So? Do it anyway. Make them send the Gestapo to arrest you.
easy to say...unless there is a showing of 100,000 people we are weak!!! you cannot ask people to go on their own...DHS will put them in jail. Our nation is doomed!
It’s time to be PIRATES! It’s time to take back our country!
Welcome to commissar obamas America. No more freedom of assembly. What freedom will he outlaw next?
I think this is what Obama has planned for all those who oppose him:
Did you really think we want those laws observed? said Dr. Ferris. We want them to be broken. Youd better get it straight that its not a bunch of boy scouts youre up against... Were after power and we mean it... Theres no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there arent 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? Whats 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 thats the system, Mr. Reardon, thats the game, and once you understand it, youll be much easier to deal with.

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!!
