ATTN. D.C. BOUND TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Surround Obama at Cannon HOB at 3 p.m. EDT Today
Saturday, March 20, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 03/20/2010 5:42:24 AM PDT by kristinn

According to news reports, Barack Obama is scheduled to go to Capitol Hill this afternoon to lobby the House Democrat caucus to support his takeover of the American healthcare system.

Latest reports show that there are still three dozen or more undecided Democrats.

With Obama traveling to Capitol Hill while thousands of Tea Party Patriots are expected to be there at the same time, the Patriots will have a great chance to bring their message directly to Obama and the Democrats by surrounding them (as best as possible) at the Cannon House Office Building.

From the AFP:

Obama was due to meet Democratic lawmakers in the ornate Cannon House caucus room at 3:00 pm (1900 GMT) Saturday, along with Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Patriots should plan to start 'surrounding' the Cannon Building at 2 p.m. The Capitol Police will establish a security perimeter, but there's no reason Patriots should not not be seen and heard by Obama and the Democrats.

Please forward this report to Twitter and other sites where those traveling to D.C. today will see it.

Agree, and I would gladly go to jail for an opportunity to do exactly that.

GOOD LUCK, GIVE H for those of us who can’t go. But are manning email and phones on the home front.


Hold your own street protest in front of your reps local offices. Or busy street corners. Try and get the local media to cover it. Hammer the Medicare/SS issue, nothing like mad grannies and gramps.

This is from a 2007 contact list of congressional aides. Some might not be there any longer, but worth a try. The ones on the one post are senate aides, a few have bounced back, it’s worth the effort to clog up their email system along with the phones, and 1/3rd of these senators are up for re-election.

Mail must be inspected for anthrax takes 2 weeks, so if you snail mail send a post card

Contact congressional aides.

Defeat Obamacare call list: List now contains the new MAYBES culled from FR posts. Be sure to call KNOWN RINOS too.THEY ARE ANSWERING THEIR LOCAL NUMBERS

Here is one of the ones Rush gave out on the radio that I’m calling. So far it’s been busy but I’m going to burn it up till I get to tell my congress critter to vote NO!
Join me?..... 1-877-762-8762

CODE RED Contact list
Remember they are all being offered BRIBES for their votes. Ask them how much their bribe price is.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Sunday March 21st.

Good idea from the bloggers at Hillbuzz:
They offer specifics and links on how to put pressure on Dem DONORS, who have private numbers for legislators who may have taken their phones off the hook.

Congress may not want to hear from us, but they’ll listen to the money men.
Call them and fax them them instead of telling us you don’t trust them. for two free faxes a day. for another 2 free faxes per day.

And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.

At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!

Dittos- HUGE THANKS to all of you going in person to confront the dictatorship now in Washington. YOU are the heart of America and w/o you we’d be in a Castro or Chavez situation already.

Here in Chicago I phoned my “Representative”, but was fed a propaganda line by the help at the front desk, who countered my charge that Democrats would unconstitutionally pass the health plan w/ that “Slaughter Rule”, if they didn’t have enough votes to pass it legally. He said “No, ma’am, you don’t understand- Congress would not pass something unconstitutionally. This has been done before, many times.”

I told him this has NEVER been done before. The only times they’ve ever used the “deemed passed” method is if they have a huge majority to pass it anyway. Democrats definitely have no wide margin of votes for this harmful, nonsensical bill. I then told the man that he is just part of the propaganda machine, to be telling a lie like that to me.

The man was not rude, but he did treat me as if I was stupid & uninformed (like the majority of other Chicagoans who keep electing these Democrat criminals to office). We left on a good note, so I assume he’ll pass my message on to the Congressman.

It does feel good to protest for a just cause, but Obama will be shielded from the protesters and Pelosi and compamy could care less. If the deal fails it will be because they couldnt buy enough votes to pass it. Most Washington insiders say she has the votes to spare and they are deciding who gets a pass to vote no. Mostly those with a close reelection contest. Am I cynical? You betcha.

What exactly in my post is so bad?

All you have is insults.

ONe of my points is that if Rush alone would go and would have campaigned for this he alone would be able to bring hundreds of thousands MORE patriots to washington DC this weekend which would have stopped this bill in its tracks for sure. I’m not saying the people there now won’t be able to and i hope they do.

what Rush , savage ,Beck , hannity, levin et al need to do is lead another protest to DC to bring this communist government down as people did in Ukraine ( the orange revolution) , in zcheckoslovakia(the Velvet revolution) and other places. It’s been done before just by people blocking the city with hundreds of thousands of bodies. Learn histoy. there is something called Google out there.

My going there or not whether i have means or not will not make a difference and is none of your business. only chance i have is what i ‘m doing spreading ideas on the internet which is something. and i’ve done this for years. i also have things to do for me for my survival but I spend time writing these posts on the internet and blogs to help out the U.S.A even though i need to spend my time working to survive while those millionaire talk show hosts are doing who knows what in their million dollar mansions when they could be out there now actually making a differnce.

Yeah maybe I will go back to working for me instead of calling congressmen , posting on blogs , creating automation on the internet etc., as I”ve been doing for years, since all i get is insults. yeah i’ll work for myself as my economic situation is not good.

If i had the money. I’d go.

I’ve done a lot for decades calling congresmen, posting on blogs , and other things i can’t say for freedom and the U.S.A.

But since all i get is insults for posting etc. then i’ll go back to working for me , for my survival and not even spend time posting or even think about politics .

I agree that Rush has done a lot for freedom and America. I’ve done more than most calling congressment etc.

But if he went , Rush, or the other talk show cretins, then Rush alone could definitely stop this bill with the addional number of people he could bring. Me going would only add one person wich wouldn’t make a difference. And yes I want to go but i have no money but if they take my advice and stage a larger protest to bring down this communist government I will plan now to go.

all you want to do is insult while not even reading or trying to understand the IDEA that i posted which is THE SOLUTION.

however if you look at this thread u will see others who do agree with me and replied to me . so i don’t care what you think or say about me.

Fake idiots Rush, Savage, Beck,Hannity, Levin,O’rielly, et al could have hopped on a plane and led millions more to come to DC. But noooo they are too “busy” lounging around their million dollar mansions.

ROFL, thanks for showing us your ignorance and the HUGE chip on your shoulder.
