Skip to comments.Protest Obama in Kirkland, WA Friday, Feb. 17
Posted on 02/16/2012 7:49:28 PM PST by garjog
Attention Seattle area Freepers and America lovers:
Obama will land in Marine One on the Northwest University athletic fields in Kirkland, WA at 11 AM Friday Feb. 17.
He will have lunch with Bill Gates and buddies at 12 PM at the Westin Hotel in Bellevue to extort money for his re-election.
I think that he will fly way about 2:15 PM from Northwest U. campus, which means he will be returning before 2 PM.
The university is getting no payment for the huge inconvenience of jamming our wireless, moving classes and parking.
55th street runs east west bordering the south side of campus. This street is a great location to hold signs protesting Obama's anti-Christian position forcing Catholic organizations to violate their religious commitments.
Here is your chance to show Obama what we think of his disastrous leadership.
See directions and map: http://www.northwestu.edu/tours/directions.php
Here is a chance they will pick another landing site, but that would mean the would have to close the freeways. Spread the word.
Yeah and they shut done all the airports(mine included). So I will just have to go boating. My new boat name is “Down W Obama”.

What is this “Northwest U” campus????
You put this up on your State Board on FReeRepublic right?
Oops - not a community college, but a small Christian college offering full degrees.
Yes, it is linked to WA state. Just thought everyone might like to see it. The amount of fundraisers that O is doing is disgusting. He couldn’t be doing much other work.
Seems an ODD place for Obomba to show up....looks to be related to the Assemblies of God ministry.....
Wait, the Seattle Times is reporting that Obama will land in Paine Field in Everett to give a speech at Boeing and attend two fundraisers on the Eastside.
But, details differ from what I know is true.
Then it says that he will have a tour of the Boeing plant and give a speech at Boeing in the morning. Then go to the home of one of the 99 percent to extort money, then go to the Westin in Bellevue.
However, I happen to know that he will be at the Westin at 12 noon because a photographer friend of mine told me she will be there with other photographers.
Also, our building at Northwest U is closed from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM.
So here is what I think will happen.
He was in California today. So, it takes about two hours to fly up. If they leave at 8 AM then it could be that Air Force One will land at Paine Field in Everett around 10:30 AM.
He will then fly Marine One to Northwest U at 11 AM.
Then the motorcade drives from the Northwest U campus to Bellevue Hilton to meet Bill for lunch at 11:30 AM. at 1 PM he goes to the home of the billionaire couple near by.
The building at Northwest is closed until 2:30.
So he must be coming back around 2 PM to fly the chopper back to Boeing for the tour and afternoon speech.
That must be the real itinerary. I will report back what actually happens here if anyone cares.
From the Seattle Fish Wrap:
“President Obama arrives Friday (Feb. 17) for a speech at Boeing’s Everett plant and a pair of campaign fundraisers on the Eastside.
Drivers can expect occasional traffic delays as the president’s motorcade moves around the area.
Obama is scheduled to arrive in late morning at Paine Field, before heading to the Boeing plant where he’ll tour the factory and then talk about manufacturing and exports.
He’ll then attend an afternoon fundraiser at the Medina home of Susan and Jeff Brotman, followed by another fundraiser at the Westin Bellevue hotel.
He’s scheduled to depart from Paine Field in late afternoon.”
It is a Christian university in Kirkland, east of Seattle.
“Seems an ODD place for Obomba to show up....looks to be related to the Assemblies of God ministry.....”
From what I hear, they needed a place to land Marine One near the home of the 99 percent donors so that they didn’t need to close the freeways.
On Wednesday SEVEN military helicopters landed on the athletic fields. Our parking lot and some buildings were closed. The admin implied it was to do repair on the parking lot bud didn’t say directly.
They agreed to do this out of the goodness of their hearts since we are getting no payment.
The military did a practice landing of both Marine One and Two and Navy and Air force helicopters around 2 PM. Looked like some Black Hawks. We saw a funny small black plane fly over hear as well, must have been a drone.
Someone said that to have both Navy and Air Force choppers meant that the governor will be part of the fun to help the big O stuff his coffers.
“SEVEN military helicopters landed “
Wait, I could be wrong on that. I counted five choppers, but someone told me there are seven. I can confirm this Friday.
Another possibility is that AF1 will land around 9 AM in Everett, that would give O time for a tour of the plant and a speech before taking the chopper to Kirkland.
Looks like Obama is spending more of his time each week fundraising. He is literally not doing his job. He is campaigning, not governing. The man is a disgusting disgrace.
From the National Review:
Obama: At Least 74 Fundraisers Since January 2011
By Jim Geraghty
January 12, 2012 9:02 A.M.
In the seventh paragraph of an article on page A7, the Washington Post acknowledges that a bit of administration spin is particularly unconvincing: Aides said Obama is focused on governing, not campaigning, but he has held five fundraisers this week alone.
Obama held 69 fundraisers between January 1 and December 1 of 2011, an average of one every five days.
Then again, perhaps Obama sees fundraising as a form of governing.
We’re not linked to WA state (WSU?) - I’m not sure what the statement implies but I don’t think that’s what you meant, just that we are in the state of WA?? But someone not familiar with NU might think otherwise...
Just thought I’d jump-in and make sure that it’s clear that NU is not affiliated with UW, WSU or any other state college. It’s a high-dollar, private university and I’m proud to have earned my degree there!!
I shared this thread - but apparently the Secret Service is already closing off the areas around campus ... there’s a possibility NO ONE will be driving down 108th on Friday.
And it’s a NU Friday too - hope no potential students’ families spent a bunch of $$ to see a campus they can barely (if, at all) access.
NU is interdenominational. There are many who attend that are not of the AG Church, but many of the profs, admins, etc. ARE connected to or attend AG. The Christian teachings are AG in nature but do not step on other truly Christian churches’ doctrinal beliefs. The chapel sessions are mostly AG but there have been plenty of other denominations (and faiths! - Jewish, for instance) reps at the pulpit.
Just to clarify....
Thanks...too bad they are being tainted today.
Not a community college. It is the top Christian leadership college in the state.
I was telling my daughter this would be a good topic for her history class where they will have debates on topics. Should presidents be allowed to use their official capacities and all that goes with it (planes, choppers, security, etc.) to do fund raising? I imagine that only gets brought up in the media though when it is a Republican.
I suppose the security is a must, and all the other stuff is needed to support the security, so I suppose one couldn't just hop in a rental car. So then just say no fundraisers where he personally goes. I am glad to see that he is showing all of the 99 percenters in Medina his support however.
OK, so here is what actually happened just in case anyone is still looking at this page.
Obama arrived in Marine One at about 1:40 PM on the Northwest U fields. I was in a second story office room and had a direct view of him getting out, waving and walking to the limo. I was about 30 yards away. Few people get that close really to Marine One and a Presidential motorcade.
He spoke at Boeing in Everett at 11:30 AM, then flew to Kirkland. He is now extorting money from one of the one percenters in Bellevue.
This morning I got to campus at 8 AM and put two large Newt 2012 stickers on my rear car window. Then I parked on the street right where I knew the motorcade would pass by.
Turns out that at about 11:30 AM I got a call from our security. “Did you park on 53rd street?” “Yes.” “Well you need to move it because if not they will tow it.”
We had visiting parents and students on campus today, usually that means parking is tight and a major parking lot was closed, so parking on the street was justifiable.
Other cars on the street down two car lengths from mine were not moved (not on university property), but they knew who I was because of my employee parking sticker.
Didn’t want to pay for the tow, so moved it.
If I had been able to keep it parked where it was, I’m pretty sure that Obama would have seen the stickers.
Had to cancel my 12:40 class today because the students didn’t show and were so excited and unable to concentrate.
Turns out that there were seven choppers on the field on Wednesday practice and today five, with a sixth landing after the President left. Black Hawks. Two Army and two Air Force.
Kind of cool to see the military and secret service and snipers working. Wish it was a visit from president that I liked.
Funny because in my 9 AM class, four students had been assigned to debate the re-election of Obama. This was decided long before we knew Obama would land on our campus.
The students voted for the pro-Obama team. They had some really good arguments (Killed Osama, got us out of wars) and the anti-Obama kids were not as prepared.
I am thinking it might be rather difficult to unseat Obama. Few people are as informed as we are here at FR.
“Were not linked to WA state (WSU?)”
Hi Nu grad. Look for my freeper mail to you.
I was responding to the post asking if I let Washington State Freepers know about this.
When I posted it I included the Washington state ping list.
That is what I meant.
No one will be looking at this page since it is old news now.
“Should presidents be allowed to use their official capacities and all that goes with it (planes, choppers, security, etc.) to do fund raising? “
Would have been far cheaper to fly all the donors to DC and put them up in top hotels.
“Thanks...too bad they are being tainted today.”
Not really tainted. We have a strong faith culture here.
We are sponsored by the AG denomination but about 60 percent of our students come from other faith traditions. Catholics, Baptists anyone who is born again and believes in basic biblical doctrines.
Unlike most Christian Universities, however, students must sign a faith statement affirming basic traditional doctrines of Christianity and be recommended by two pastors.
They must also pledge to a community life statement that says that till live moral lives with out drugs or alcohol.
“He couldnt be doing much other work.”
When, pray tell, has he ever done any work?
A student asked me “why do you dislike Obama so much?” and so I spent a Saturday making this web page in honor of the Obama visit:
OBAMA CLARIFER web blog http://obamaclarifier.blogspot.com/
For anyone else reading these posts, I wonder if the Secret Service was spying on us at Northwest that day since his poster enters the conversation. I stupidly sent him a Freepermail and got no response. I wanted to know when he graduated, but no response. NU "Grad" isn't really a grad at all. He is a secret agent.
Must be Secret Service since a Troll would have said something mean or disruptive. Interesting.
Wow. You reply now? Months later?
I caused a stir here on FR because I thought that you were a secret service agent trying to see who I was.
Then you didn’t reply to any other posts or to my FR mail. Seemed specious.
I knew that the SS was monitoring all social media about the visit and your comments seemed like someone not familiar with the school (the way you discussed the denomination and chapel speakers — didn’t sound like what one of our students would say.
The thread was frozen because we all thought you were a secret service agent. Ha.
