    In recent months, a loosely coordinated band of activists have displayed anti-Obama signs from atop overpasses across the U.S. After one town cracked down on the practice, conservatives involved in the movement are crying foul. Officials in Campbell, Wis. recently passed legislation that specifically targets signage displayed within 100 feet of a bridge, precisely the areas targeted by the so-called “Overpasses for Impeachment” campaign. Town Chairman Scott Johnson claims the decision stemmed from “them distracting people,” which he said “constituted a safety risk.” Despite insistence that the new laws are designed to combat distracted driving, Tea Party-aligned activists naturally feel...
  • Armed Assailants Target Anti-Obama Protesters

    As public sentiment against Barack Obama continues to grow, more and more patriots are joining forces with a nationwide campaign to impeach the failed president. Many of these protesters join with other locals to hold signs of disapproval on overpasses across the U.S. While opposition is to be expected with any politically charged event, one group of Georgia women recently learned just how threatening the left can be toward conservatives. While holding signs above one road in Gwinnett County, protesters say they received multiple threats — including one by a man with a gun. The man reportedly pulled up to...

    "Citizens have a right to peaceably assemble," said Messmer, who was part of a series of overpass demonstrations around the country seeking the president's impeachment. "We were simply doing that. There were no laws broken." Sgt. Al Nothum, a spokesman for the Missouri Highway Patrol, said the potential for a traffic hazard was why the two and 10 or so other protesters were told by officers to leave the Fairgrounds Road overpass about 2 p.m. The two were arrested, he said, for failing to obey. Nothum said the patrol wants charges filed but prosecutors have yet to decide. The patrol...

    Houston on the TC Jester footpath bridge over I-10 filmed during morning rush hour on July 8, 2013 – This was the first protest event for Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment-Houston that was organized on Facebook. It is a national movement to give voice to widening frustration to Obama’s anti-Constitutional stance and tyranny. The group is trying to pressure Congress to act and initiate proceedings against Obama. They also have room under their tent to give voice to the push for amnesty against the wishes of many Americans. - See more at:

    There’s a new grass-roots movement developing across the country that likely isn’t going to mean good news for President Obama. The folks at Overpasses For Obama’s Impeachment are staging protests on those freeway overpasses across the country, calling for impeachment. WND has reported that Watergate investigator Bob Woodward of the Washington Post compares Barack Obama to Richard Nixon. Members of Congress say it’s about time to consider impeachment. Rock legend Ted Nugent says Obama’s constitutional violations make him eligible to be impeached. And even Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin has called for Obama’s removal. There’s also a national petition that...

    Planning to sweep the country with a “patriot wave,” a movement called Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment is looking to heat up July and August with overpass protests, according to the Examiner. James Neighbors, the movement’s national coordinator and founder, has already set up a Facebook page and is preparing for demonstrations similar to the one held in California earlier this month.

    YAKIMA, Wash. — There was no way the agencies monitoring wildlife along the Interstate 90 corridor could supply the manpower needed for a yearlong survey of animals along the highway, so they turned to you. Well, you and anyone else who drives the stretch of I-90 connecting Eastern and Western Washington. That was the genesis of the I-90 Wildlife Watch, a multi-agency effort that enlisted public volunteers -- commuters -- to document wildlife sightings. "That information is really hard to collect," said Paula MacKay, an Ellensburg-based research associate with Western Transportation Institute. "You have to be in the right place...

    South Texas is not only going to get its first interstate - it is also going to get a second and a third. State transportation officials knew one of three southern highways - U.S. Highway 281 in Hidalgo County, U.S. Highway 77 in Cameron County or U.S. Highway 59 in Webb County - would eventually become part of an interstate stretching from the Texas-Mexico border to Texarkana, in the northeast part of the state. Only Webb County is currently served by an interstate. The state's Trans-Texas Corridor plan calls for an Interstate 69 extension linking South Texas to points north,...

    This as an ACTION PLAN for PASSIONATE CONSERVATIVES to counter the lefts anti-war demonstrations using small groups of patriots to reach the most people: (1) Utilize key highway OVERPASSES to get out our message. Anti-war activists are already using some of these bridges to display their banners. If so, monitor their websites to obtain day and time of their banner placement. Place our banners before they arive. (2) COUNTER DEMONSTRATIONS include waving Old Glory (Rally 'Round the Flag) and holding large banner(s). Don't tie banner to overpass fence as this is illegal. You do have the constitutional right to hold...
