"...Washington Times affiliated radio show America's Morning News..."

I listen to this great conservative show every morning between 3:AM and 5:AM. It's almost like listening to "FReeper Radio!"

Melanie Morgan used to co-host the show. Many FReepers know Melanie quite well.

Yup, Melanie is a good friend of Free Republic!

I believe her first interaction was at the Post Inaugural Victory Brunch in Clovis, CA in Feb 2011, which was televised (some days later) on CSPAN.

She is also back on the morning show on KSFO.

Plus, her is an article from her website, written by someone else. Good article.

Tea Party for 2Hundred?
According to some in the press, the Tea Party is all but dead. Or is that just wishful thinking?
On February 16, 2012, approximately two hundred San Francisco Tea Party members stood outside of the Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco to protest Barack Obama. Standing behind the barricades next to the Tea Partiers stood a motley crew of Occupiers, pot legalizers and environmentalists, also protesting the president. The press was all over the place. After all, Obama was in town.
You couldn't miss the Tea Partiers -- they had about 100 bright red foam fingers that read "NOBAMA 2012." The protest and accompanying fingers were inspired by SF Weekly journalist Erin Sherbert's jab at Jan Brewer on January 27, 2012 entitled "Obama Coming to San Francisco, Where Nobody Will Wag Their Fingers in His Face."
The San Francisco Tea Party viewed it differently. They considered it a prime opportunity to wag their fingers in the face of the man who can celebrate being the first downgrade President, the overseer of one of the longest-running periods of unemployment over 8% since the Great Depression and the man responsible for our $15 trillion deficit, record spending, and a stalled economy yielding consistently lower GDP and tax revenues. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
This finger waggin' at Obama -- for driving the economy over the cliff and watching it plummet towards the bottom at lightning speed -- is long overdue.
Fueled by fear they won't be able to retire, sell their homes, educate their kids, afford top notch health care or the cost to drive to work; and motivated by increasing levels of anxiety that their children won't have the same opportunities their parents had, Tea Partiers came out in droves this chilly San Francisco night. They stood for hours becoming hoarse from chants while being forced to inhale the carbon-footprint unfriendly, air polluting fumes wafting over from the Occupy Wall Street and pro-pot gang.
All this to protest the President and let him -- and the 3000 adoring fans who paid $100 per ticket and the 90 who paid $38,500 per ticket -- know that while San Francisco might be the most progressive city in the country, it isn't rolling out the red carpet for Obama anymore. Visit California with solutions to our problems -- i.e., getting the government out of the way of growth, lowering regulation, taxes and spending -- then there's something to shake hands about; then right and left can unclench fists and hold hands. But, come here with your hand out, dipping into the cookie jar yet again, and that's just going to get you a good old-fashioned finger waggin'.
Ask any Tea Partier and just about any voter who's been paying attention: This President is out of touch, out of control, out of money and out of time.
The San Francisco Tea Party was such a noticeable presence outside of the Masonic Center that the SF Chronicle editors saw fit to put the Tea Party protest on the front page of the newspaper. Reporters Joe Garofoli, Carla Marinucci and Emily DeRuy are to be commended for their truthful account of the evening and, dare I say it, fair and balanced journalism.
But fie on the vast majority of reporters who either inhaled way too much of the Occupy Ganja and experienced an alternate reality from the one the rest of the world experienced or intentionally left out one important fact about the collection of protesters at the Nob Hill Masonic Center -- there were 200 organized, animated, visible and very loud Tea Partiers.
The LA Times's Kathleen Hennessey had this and only this to say about the opposition that night:
Protesters also lined up outside the Nob Hill Masonic Center. Many carried signs calling for the legalization of marijuana.
This Sacramento Bee blog posted by David Siders minimized the size of the Tea Party crowd falsely claiming. "If it was only the Tea Party across the street, the protest, however spirited, might have been small." He later added, "Though apparently outnumbered, the Tea Party supporters were loud."
Loud, yes. Outnumbered? Not even close. The Tea Party was at least evenly matched by their leftwing opposition and likely outnumbered them.
Even worse, despite a considerable media presence interviewing and videotaping Tea Partiers, local network station newscasts failed to mention that 200 Tea Partiers greeted Obama. With the exception of a brief mention on ABC, the San Francisco Tea Party was effectively excised from network news reports that evening.
This was such a blatant omission that it indisputably illustrates the control the leftwing media has over what news is disseminated and its willingness to manipulate the information flow. But marginalizing the Tea Party is nothing new.
