Dr Raoul is displaying a sign that says "If Osama was a piece of tail-Clinton would have nailed him. Kristinn is dressed as Sandy Berger, complete with Top Secret documents stuffed in his pants. When Kerrey arrived Kristinn asked him if Berger should go to jail. Raoul asked him if he was going to stay at the meeting or leave for more important matters. Kerrey gave them a look then ducked inside only to return outside to ask them who they were and what were their names. Kerrey then called Dr. Raoul an A*****e. When questioned on the language he stated that it was OK to curse because he isn't a politician.</p>

    Free Republic, the original conservative web board protests the White House Correspondents Dinner every year. (In previous cycles, they've been joined by the not-very-blendable activists of Code Pink. They still pop up in photos of congressional hearings, and Medea Benjamin isn't a pauper, so they'll probably surface again.) Our theme this year, in tribute to our late fellow FReeper, andrew, is Breitbart is Here.

    What happens when the Tea Party invades the seemingly never-ending “Occupy” protest movement? Until now, this question has been left to the whims of the imagination. But over the weekend, Accuracy in Media, Let Freedom Ring and Young America’s Foundation joined forces to infiltrate ”Occupy D.C.” As you can imagine, the results are quite hilarious, as the Tea Party counter-protesters state their love for capitalism, holding signs that read, “Taxed Enough Already” and “Unions Destroy Jobs,” among others. The patriotic young men, who are predictably met with anger, hand out Constitutions to the “Occupiers,” while defending capitalism (Meredith Jessup covered...

    It was a scene repeated countless times during the Bush years: A few hundred people massed on Pennsylvania Avenue outside the White House, wearing orange jumpsuits and hoods, holding photos of wounded children or carrying coffins. They chanted antiwar slogans, acted out waterboarding and pretended to die on the sidewalk. Those who refused orders to leave the area -- including ubiquitous activist Cindy Sheehan -- were arrested. But the remarkable thing about this familiar antiwar demonstration is that it occurred Monday, and the target was not George W. Bush but the White House's current occupant. Protesters' signs carried Obama-specific barbs:...

    ...New Jersey and Independence avenues outside the Cannon Office Building was the Band of Mothers on Thursday afternoon, playing patriotic music, waving signs and asking passers-by to write postcards to soldiers as they have done at least 10 times over the past two years. "We give lots of hugs to veterans, too," said Band of Mothers founder Beverly Perlson. But not every demonstration is so warm and fuzzy, she said. Mrs. Perlson told this reporter about the time Rep. John P. Murtha, Pennsylvania Democrat, called the Capitol Hill Police on her last year. She had gone into his office to...

    Friend of the D.C. Chapter of FreeRepublic.com, Eugene Delgaudio of Public Advocate, will be holding a freep of Obama outside Wakefield High School in Arlington, VA, tomorrow morning. He's inviting Freeepers in the Northern Virginia-D.C. area to join him.He'll be there from 10 a.m. onward through the 12 noon scheduled speech at the edge of the security perimeter at Dinwiddie and Geo. Mason. Look for the Gadsden flags and the angry Arlingtronians trying to run Eugene out of their liberal haven :-)

    14 & 21 August 2009 Elder Street and Georgia Avenue, Washington, DC On 14 August Mrs T spotted an Azzhat poster with the words, “Thank God for IEDs” printed on it. She didn’t get a picture of it so you’ll just have to take her word. My experience says her word is pretty damn good. On 21 August we had weather make up all around us and it finally cut loose. I wanted to go down the street and pass out soap but Mrs T wanted to have a wet tee shirt contest. Without any beer it was hard to...

    Walter Reed - Week 215, May 29, 2009, Busy Friday Getting Ready for the SummerA great night to be at the Front Gate. Good camaraderie and good weather. Much of the evening was spent talking with some wounded warriors and visitors who joined us. And, as is the norm, many passengers in cars waved and drivers honked showing their support of the troops. Two wounded warriors, Tommy and Jason stopped and we chatted for quite a while. Both had been in Iraq, Jason –three tours. Tommy’s family will be joining him at WR soon. Thanks largely to the Yellow Ribbon...

We heard that recruiting goals are being met, that re-enlistments are high and that fewer are getting...

    BufordP and Cindy-True-Supporter Fraxinus Lurker Bill Pics of "not the usual" perps. While we were setting up for Walter Reed, a little excitement happened. About four patrol cars sped around our corner chasing another vehicle and all came to a screeching halt at the entrance to the lot we use to park our cars. During the commotion a couple of fellows coming from Walter Reed entered the lot to retrieve their cars. Since they were unable to leave the parking lot I had a chance to talk to one of the young men. Found out he was from India....
