    TALLAHASSEE — Hundreds of immigrants, some in the country illegally, and their children are swarming the Capitol this week to plead with lawmakers not to break up their families. Lining hallways, crowding into elevators and praying outside the Florida House and Senate chambers, immigrants -- including two bus loads from Palm Beach County on Tuesday -- are staging an all-out push in the final two weeks of the legislative session to keep an Arizona-style immigration reform from becoming a reality. In tow are children of all ages whose parents are illegal immigrants and who have been deported or are in...

    Last night was soggy with temperature in the high 40’s. The rain meant that the MOAB, Mother Of All Banners, and Flag Row were safe and dry in their holders until next Friday. However, Flag Row was covered by smaller flags all night. Easter weekend means that there was no dinner bus. It also means that many people in the DC area are out of town on Easter break. Traffic was considerably lighter and only a few cars were entering and leaving Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Because of the rain,our umbrellas were up. Jessica started with a pink...

    The Blaze ^ | April 19, 2011 | Jonathon M. Seidl,
    The New Black Panther Party, the racist and radical black power group, has a big day ahead of it this coming Saturday. According to its website, it’s planning a massive 60-city “showdown.” And the day of rage will include a protest of “non-black” businesses. The group says it’s establishing a home base at an office building in Harlem, an area it’s modeling after revolutionary ground zero in Egypt. The site goes on to explain why its rallying: As in other revolutions, protests and uprisings going on around the earth, a showdown is looming for Saturday April 23rd as marchers with...

    On the 313th consecutive Friday night, it was a quiet and pleasant evening at the front gates of Walter Reed. We had a good group with a lot of waves and honks from the passing cars. It was a break from the hectic pace of the past several weeks. In the 6th anniversary after action report, we should have mentioned that the George Washington University Young Republicans, who were there, were following a tradition of joining us. Over the past 5 years, the GWU Young Republicans Club has joined the Friday night support the troops rally, either 1 or...

    President Barack Obama's packed April 20-21 San Francisco/Los Angeles fundraising calender may net him and the Democratic National Committee upwards of $7 million, according to our calculations of events as described by party insiders. Here's the April 20 San Francisco rundown for the president: *Big ticket dinner: The high end $35,800-a-seat dinner slots -- there were 60 exclusive seats in San Francisco -- have quickly sold out -- despite that initial "sticker shock" we told you about. The take: $2.1 million. Those who get into the Pacific Heights home of CEO Mark Benioff -- a residence that used to...

    Tonight, the 6 year anniversary of supporting the wounded warriors at Walter Reed, was a special night. It was the 312th consecutive Friday night that Free Republic members, Protest Warriors, lurkers and visitors have stood at the front gates to counter the anti-war group down the street. Even though it was a chilly and rainy evening, spirits were high with some familiar faces and some new Freepers joining us. Mr and Mrs Trooprally coordinated two tents as shelter with plenty of BBQ, pizza, hot drinks and cookies to feed the crowd of 30 plus. With the corners fully manned...

  • Tea Party rallies for Arizona-style immigration law at the Capitol

    04/04/2011 10:37:30 PM PDT · by American Preservative · 7 replies ^ | April 4, 2011 | Wyatt Buchanan
    An Arizona-like law to combat illegal immigration has a snowball's chance in Phoenix of passing the California Legislature, but freshman Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks (San Bernardino County) is giving it a shot. Donnelly, who has patrolled the California-Mexico border as part of the militant Minutemen citizen group, held a rally at the Capitol today for his bill, AB26. The bill would make a number of changes in state law, including requiring law enforcement to verify the immigration status of anyone who is arrested and suspected of being in the country illegally. It also would make it illegal to limit...

    Another damp evening made cold by the wind. Traffic was constant as were the honks and waves Speaking of waves one car slowed down and an older woman wagged her finger at Trooprally. Her car continued slowly south across the entrance to WR and stopped in front of RonGKirby. For a full ten seconds she gave the finger to RonG before remembering where she was and drove on. A throwback from the 60’s? Let’s see if she repeats that behavior next week. Ten Freepers were joined by two visitors from the Aleethia Foundation: Hal Koster, Founder and President, and...

    Reid jabs Tea Party: 'There were tens of them' at DC rallyBy Jordan Fabian - 04/01/11 11:52 AM ET Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Friday ridiculed the size of the crowd at a Tea Party rally on Capitol Hill for deep spending cuts. No more than a couple of hundred activists showed up for the Washington demonstration, many fewer than past Tea Party rallies in the nation's capital. "There were tens of them here yesterday. That’s a chosen word, tens of them," Reid said on a conference call with reporters. Reid and his fellow Senate Democrats have repeatedly...

    Â…..of Two DC Chapter Members of Free Republic ! Shockingly, an agreement has been reached between the House and US Senate! This agreement allocates a portion of unused stimulus funds to erect two iconic statues honoring the six consecutive years during which the DC Chapter led Friday night troop support rallies outside the Walter Reed Army Medical Center gate. President B Hussein Obama refrained from commenting, but assured the American people he would give careful consideration on whether to sign the legislation after first conferring with his teleprompter and then deliberating over a few rounds of golf, vacationing in...

    A small but vocal group of Tea Party activists gathered outside the Capitol on Thursday to urge House Republican leaders to hold the line and push for deeper spending cuts in the federal budget. Chanting, “Cut it or shut it” and “We want less,” the activists directed their ire at Senate Democrats, arguing that the cuts they have demanded are not “extreme,” but necessary to right the nation’s fiscal ship. House GOP leaders “are doing the right thing in changing the direction of spending, but they’ve got to go further,” said Colin Hanna, president of Let Freedom Ring, a conservative...
