    Shortly after 6 am Saturday morning, and less than 9 hours after our last Friday night at Walter Reed, the first members of the DC Chapter of Free Republic began to arrive at the gates where the ambulances would depart Walter Reed. Between Silver Spring, MD and Bethesda, Montgomery County, MD police cars were already at every intersection to ensure a non-stop passage for each ambulance to the newly named Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda. By 6:30 am, the banners and signs were ready for the first of 18 ambulances. A food court, courtesy of the Trooprally’s...

    We knew it was coming and planned for it. For six years and four months of consecutive Friday evenings, the DC Chapter of Free Republic, other groups and individuals successfully challenged Code Pink and their union pawns in front of Walter Reed. After several months, they were forced from the Walter Reed front gates to a location 50 yards down Georgia Ave. Since June 2005, many Americans have gathered on Friday nights to continue to keep the anti-military forces away and to show support to the wounded warriors and their families. Tonight, then, was different from all others. Walter...

    CEDAR RAPIDS - Sarah Palin may be making a lunch-hour stop in downtown Cedar Rapids. "She's done about six of our rallies. I think that's more than anyone else, so I wouldn't be surprised to see her," says Sal Russo, co-founder and chief strategist for Tea Party Express, which is planning a rally from noon to 2 p.m. at Greene Square Park on Sept. 1. Then again, Russo concedes, Palin may be a no-show. "She's known for her spontaneity," Russo says about Palin, who is scheduled to be in Iowa on Sept. 3 for an Iowa Tea Party rally in...

    Tea Party Express V national bus tour begins this Saturday in Napa, CA. As I pack my bags and organize my performance music in preparation to embark on my fifth national Tea Party Express tour, I am a bit frustrated by those still clueless about the Tea Party movement; who we are and our propose. Please excuse my frankness. Despite all the Tea Party has done to pull our country back from diving over the cliff to it's death into liberal socialistic hell, incredibly, there are still “Republicans” who think we are “fringe loonies”. If God had not sent the...

    American broadcaster Glenn Beck held an inspirational rally "Restoring Courage" in support of Israel and the Jewish people at the Davidson Center near the Kotel Plaza Wednesday. The rally was attended by thousands, many of whom came to Israel with him, and was viewed by many more on a giant screen at Safra Square in Jerusalem and worldwide on Beck's web-based television station. Video "What can I teach Israel about courage?" he asked after the audience had risen for "Hatikva", Israel's national anthem, led by famed singer Dudu Fisher, with many waving Israeli and American flags. "Nothing", he said with...

    A good evening to be at Walter Reed’s front gates. There were no ambulances tonight , nor were there dinner buses. But there were soldiers coming and going through the front gates all night. Cars passing gave us many honks with passengers waving. Not to be left out, three people on bicycles rode by ringing their bells! The weather looked threatening, dark clouds loomed and distant lightning was putting on an impressive show. Ponchos and raingear were donned. The DC Chapter was ready. Five minutes of rain and it was over. Nobody complained. Pizza, soda, and brownies (by Jessica)...

    It is public knowledge that the final move of our Wounded Warriors from Walter Reed to Bethesda Naval Hospital and Ft. Belvour will be Sunday, August 28,2011. Best intel we have is that the ambulances will start transporting our Wounded Warriors out of the main at Georgia Avenue and Elder Street, NW, gate at 7AM. We do not know the exact end time. From some deduction it is expected to be around 1-2PM. THE DC CHAPTER OF FREEREPUBLIC WILL BE THERE, rain or shine or hurricane. All patriots are invited to help show our Wounded Warriors and their families that...

    It’s 6:30 pm on Friday evening at Walter Reed. Flag Row is being set up and the banners are on three corners. The first FReepers are taking to the corners with signs and flags. As the first flag is posted , passing cars start honking and don’t stop until we have left for the evening. Tonight, as usual, we talked with wounded warriors, family members and staff who were walking into or out of Walter Reed. And the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) bus stopped for a rare third time allowing some of us to directly thank the wounded warriors...

    San Antonio activists will be among protesters in front of the Lincoln Memorial on Sept. 15 for a national Grito de Dolores. Instead of marking Mexican independence, however, they will call for immigrant human rights in the face of state-led initiatives they view as draconian and discriminatory. Co-organizer Jaime Martinez, head of the César E. Chávez Legacy and Educational Foundation in San Antonio, said the march, led by a group called Viva El Pueblo Latino, will advocate for comprehensive immigration reform, family unification and passage of the DREAM Act. As Mexican President Felipe Calderón delivers the traditional Grito de Dolores...

    Freedom Works ^ | August 7th | Matt Kibbe
    I'm often asked why we're not organizing another Taxpayer March on Washington this September 12th. Why, after more than a million Americans protested on 9/12/2009 and 9/12/2010, aren't we headed back to Washington? The reason is simple: we're not just a protest movement anymore. This movement has had stages. We began as a protest movement against big government in 2009, morphed into America's most powerful get-out-the-vote machine in 2010, and pushed for transformative legislative change to rein in government in 2011.

    Finally, a warm somewhat breezy Friday evening at the front gates of Walter Reed. A solid group of fourteen Freepers holding signs and flags in front of the banners received honks and waves from passing cars. You wouldn’t know that Walter Reed is closing three weeks from now. Three buses and several cars carried the wounded warriors and family to dinner and an evening of entertainment in near-by Maryland. Returning after 9pm, they were cheered into Walter Reed by our stalwart group. The Aleethia Foundation has done a wonderful job over the past seven years coordinating these Friday evening...

    National Tea Party leaders in California were thrilled about one by-product of the political bloodbath over raising the federal debt ceiling: The fight showed that after two years of rabble-rousing from outside the Capitol, the Tea Party has real power to shape the debate in Washington. Their challenge now that President Obama has signed the debt limit law: Can the Tea Party transform its government-shrinking mantra into long-term power, or will it be a one-hit wonder? They're not stopping to think about it. This month, Tea Partiers will storm town hall meetings of Republican and Democratic members of Congress and...

    On a hot July Friday evening, temperature at 100 degrees, you might expect everyone has left for the beach. Not at the Walter Reed front gate! Tonight, over 41 Freepers, lurkers and visitors arrived to support the wounded warriors and their families on one of the few remaining Friday nights before the final transfer to Bethesda and Ft Belvoir. A number of Freepers returned to join us. They came from Florida, California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Georgia. SeektheTruth brought a sign all the way from Florida thanking the DC Chapter of Free Republic for its 328 consecutive...
