Welcome Whitney Pitcher!

By Gary P Jackson

We am very pleased to welcome Whitney Pitcher to our blog!

Readers have already enjoyed a sampling of her writing, with Whitney taking on Juan Williams, and then with her latest in a continuing series: Governor Palin on the Issues, entitled Governor Palin’s Top 10 Political and Policy Statements of 2010.

Whitney comes to blogging and political activism the way most of us have, out of sheer frustration with the status quo. A researcher for a prestigious medical school, she describes herself as someone who was “politically complacent and slightly left-of-center” until she heard Governor Sarah Palin speak out on the issues several years ago. Since then, as she explains, she’s had a serious “awakening” and became quite active in Conservative circles.

Whitney takes her inspiration from another famous political activist, Molly Pitcher, a heroine of the American Revolution, and is proud to be a part of the new and ongoing Conservative Revolution that is sweeping the nation.

Whitney is an active member of her local chapter of the 912 Project, and a strong supporter of Sarah Palin and Common Sense Conservatism. Whitney is a regular contributor to Conservatives4Palin and other Conservative websites. She will join Stacy Drake as a Contributing Editor.

We are very happy to be able to feature her outstanding work and bring our readers yet another strong voice for Liberty and Freedom.

Millions At D.C. 912 Project Tea Party Protest Dozens At 913 Pro Obamacare Rally….A Tale Of Two Protests.

As we all know, the Obama controlled media has went above and beyond the call of duty to downplay the 912 Project Tea Party in Washington, D.C. on Saturday. It’s been completely laughable, to say the least.

We wrote about this earlier, and supplied plenty of photos and video. But it seems the Obama controlled media has it’s orders to cover things up, and they are doing their very best not to disappoint their Dear Leader.

The media in other countries have no such slavish devotion to Obama. This from the UK Daily Mail:

All of the evidence points to numbers between 1.5 and 2 million attendees at the event. There are overhead crowd shots that clearly demonstrate the crowds were some of the largest ever seen in D.C. for a gathering of any kind.

Everyone reports that D.C. for every intent and purpose was shut down due to the incredible amount of folks who came from around the nation to protest big government, Obamacare, communism, and the general wrong path government has us on.

But one of the best pieces of evidence is provided by USA Today. They were kind enough to provide an estimator of Barack Obama’s January inauguration.

You can easily use the handy gauge USA Today has given us to judge the crowd at Obama’s big day, to gauge the crowd size at the 912 Tea party.

Moderate in the Middle has a lot of photos as well as great videos over at their website, that one simply must take a look at.

JoAnn in VA Says:

September, 14, 2009 at 3:00 am

“The photo showing very few people at the march was actually taken of the National Mall. We did not have permission from DC Parks and DC police to use the Mall. We had permission to march on 16th Street, one block north however, and had to start at 10 am instead of the scheduled 1130 beginning time because the DC police told the organizers that we had reached “Critical Mass” and had more people at the starting point than could safely be contained. At 2 pm there were still people marching down 16th Street.

Mr. Obama, can you hear us now?”

I doubt this will put an end to the misinformation the Obama controlled media will continue to spread, but at least readers of ours will have some hard evidence to show that backs our assertions up.

Now it just so happens, we have video of two protests covered by the same reporter, Sophia Elena , which give us not only a great feel for the 912 event and it’s overwhelming success, but also what a complete and utter failure the pro-Obamacare rally was they next day.

As the first video shows, the overflow crowd was lively and motivated:

This video, also from Sophia Elena Reporting, shows a rally for Obamacare that was held on Sunday.

Rather incredible. It’s obvious that all of the passion is on the side of the American people and not with Obama and his government.

Even with all of David Axelrod’s astroturfing prowess, ACORN’s ability as “community organizers” and their sister organization Service Employees International Union’s (SEIU) ability to round up paid protesters and ship them anywhere, it’s obvious that support for Obama and his tyrannical government is almost non-existent, and certainly not “fired up”, to use a favorite Obama rallying cry!

The support for Obamacare is quite obviously dead. If you notice in the video from Sunday, the Obamacare supporters were basically walking in a big circle to make things look better for the camera.

Are you listening over in Congress? Do you understand what this means?

One other note that really says something about the 912 movement. Look at these photos below. The first show the area after the 912 protest. You will notice that Patriots left the grounds rather clean and free of trash when they packed up and left.

Now these photos are of the aftermath of Obama’s inauguration. We thought democrat/communists cared about our environment. Guess we were wrong!

Speaking of ACORN, here’s a nice pallet cleanser for you. It seems ACORN showed up at the 912 protests trying to sell Gadsden Flags. (Don’t Tread On Me)

The man you see in the video taking on ACORN is Tim Jones. As he explains at the end of the video, he observed the ACORN people harassing the Patriots and trying to make a buck off the protest.

It’s funny how all of these communists denounce capitalism as evil, but have absolutely no problem participating in it!

This is great video theater though. Tim Jones has obviously read “Rules For Radicals” the “community organizer’s” rabble rousing bible! Tim uses the methods fringe hate groups like ACORN, Code Pink, and a slew of other left-wing trouble makers, have used for decades to disrupt and intimidate.

It’s a true delight to watch him use their very own methods against them!

You notice the only violence comes from the ACORN people who hit Jones more than a few times. In the end we see our intrepid ACORN crew escorted out of the area by D.C. Park Police!

As Many As Two Million 9/12 Project and Tea Party Protesters In D.C. But The Obama/State Controlled Media Says “Tens Of Thousands”

You know, journalism died a long time ago, so I guess this shouldn’t even surprise anyone that the liberal state controlled media, who are basically stenographers for the Obama administration, would under report this event by oh, almost two million!

What grew out of a simple love for our nation, and inspiration from Fox News’ Glenn Beck, has turned into a serious movement that has been gaining steam since the concept was first announced by Glenn on his Fox News show in March of this year.

As Beck put it, he remembered how united America was on September 12, 2001, the day after the worst attacks on American soil. How we put aside all of our differences and came together as one nation, with one purpose.

Sadly, that feeling is gone. Battle lines have been drawn, and America has become more divided than at anytime any of us have ever seen. Of course, what has once divided us, thanks to the communist ideals of Barack Obama and the democrat/communist party, is now bringing us back together. I guess you could say Barack Obama is the “Great Uniter” just not in the way he had hoped!

With the feeling of those first days after 9/11, Glenn launched the 9/12 Project, along with a set of common sense principles that we need to follow for the nation to survive. Saturday was the culmination of that idea, and those ideals. And by any account, the 9/12 rallies were a rousing success. Not only were there as many as two million in D.C., but numerous cities in every state also held 9/12 and Tea Party protests.

Of course, since this makes Obama look just as bad as he truly is, the media is working overtime to cover the truth up. The state controlled media worked overtime to elect Obama, and sold their credibility forevermore down the road to get their man in office. They went all in on Obama, the worst bet in history.

Now full disclosure, I was not in D.C. but having looked at the various reports, tweets from rally goers, and photos, it is definitely my opinion that while the two million number may be a tad high, it’s certainly not a wild guess.

I also base this on a lifetime of attending large events as a drag racer, and enthusiast. I’ve been to many events with one day crowds in the tens of thousands, the size the Obama media is reporting, including a track attendance record setting event at Houston Raceway Park a few years back, when over 53,000 poured into a track with seating for 40,000. That was nothing compared to D.C. crowds.

Same goes for Texas Motor Speedway, in Ft Worth, Texas. The track seats roughly 200,000 people. That’s a lot of folks, but not as large as the D.C. Crowds. Take a look at this photo taken by Mary Katharine Ham:

Actually the first hint of a huge crowd didn’t come from the protesters, or the media, but from a memo written by a panic stricken top House democrat/communist aide to other aides, as well as liberal/communist activists, as reported by Gary Sargent on his Plum Line blog:

A top House Dem leadership aide has emailed a memo to Dem aides on the Hill and outside liberal groups warning they should brace for a turnout of up to two million people, suggesting Dems worry that if enough conservatives descend on the Mall it will amount to a major PR victory for the right.

The aide, Doug Thornell, warned in the memo that the dust-up over Joe Wilson has been invigorating conservatives. “It looks like Saturday’s event is going to be a huge gathering, estimates ranging from hundreds of thousands to 2 million people,” Thornell wrote in the memo, which was forwarded by a source.

In another sign of concern, the memo painstakingly detailed a range of turnout predictions from the event’s organizers, such as this one from tea party leaders promising a crowd of up to 1,000,000.

Adding to Dem concern is the fact that Beck recently claimed a major victory in the ouster of former green jobs adviser Van Jones.

The House leadership memo predicting huge turnout could have been written in hopes that it would leak and inflate expectations for turnout, anticipating that it will fall far short. But Dems on the Hill insist they’re genuinely worried about what tomorrow will bring.

Early in the day Michelle Malkin reported ABC News was saying 2 million, which ABC later backtracked from and came out with the totally laughable 60-70.000.

Michelle also reported that the park police estimated the crowd at 1.2 million. Which I believe is what the protest coordinators had permitted space for.

You can see video as well as more photos and the schematic that was used to estimate the crowd at Barack Obama’s inauguration by visiting Michelle Malkin.com.

You check it out, you decide!

The UK Daily Mail, not exactly a conservative newspaper, also reports that up to two million protesters were in D.C.

This video is time lapse from 8:00 am until 11:30 am and shows the crowds gathering:

Again, you decide.

None of this, of course, takes into account all of the Americans who couldn’t come to D.C. but attended other events all across the nation.

Video of protesters at the start of the event:

“I came here because I thought you might want to hear a black man speak 15 minutes without a teleprompter” _____Mason Weaver

Video of Mason Weaver speaking without a teleprompter!

Of course, there were lighthearted moments too, such as when a CNN reporter, doing a stand up for the in studio host, who was attempting to do a hit piece on Congressman Joe Wilson, got shouted down! First you’ll hear the crowd chanting “tell the truth, tell the truth” then they go into a refrain of “Glenn Beck! Glenn Beck!” Sharp eyes will notice a large photo of Sarah Palin being held up behind the report’s head!

When asked how they felt about Joe Wilson, the crowd goes wild! Oh, in case you were wondering, Joe Wilson has raised over $1 million is 48 hours!

Let that be a lesson to other conservative politicians. If you stand up for what is right, we’ll pay you!

In case you forgot, CNN reporters are not exactly welcome at conservative events.

Hmmm…I wonder why?

“Ask Santa Anna how it went the LAST TIME a President tried to take away Texan’s rights!”

Sign spotted at 9/12 protest in Ft Worth, Texas

No matter the final number count, it’s easy to see that the first annual 9/12 celebration was a complete success. The movement that Glenn Beck created all those months ago has started to unite patriotic Americans nationwide. People from every walk of life, every race, sex, and religious creed have learned they are not alone. They have learned their voices count.

People who have never been involved in politics in their life are excited and hopeful. Hopeful that we take control of our nation. Take the power away from corrupt, power mad politicians, and give it back to the people, as our founders intended.

To view a large collection of photos from the D.C. protest please click here.

Here’s a couple that I liked:

Here are some more crowd shots:

So where was Barack Obama during all of the festivities? Well, as they say, if you can’t stand the heat………

Actually, Obama is still trying to shove his communist Obamacare fiasco down America’s throat. Already the most overexposed President in our nation’s history, Obama took to the road yet again!

I got a hint for you Mr. President, you won the election. The time for the cheesy campaigning and ACORN style “community organizing” is over! How about you stay in the White House and do your job!

Obama chose to cut and run away from the D.C. protests to hold another Amway sales meeting, this time in Minneapolis!

A small crowd of around 15,000 showed up to hear the Community Organizer-In-Chief chant “fired up!” Ah, those were the days, eh Mr President? Back when things were carefree and easy.

This being President is hard and junk, huh?

Just as indignant towards the American people as he was during his joint address to Congress, Obama bellowed: “I will not accept the status quo. Not this time. Not now,”

What our President fails to grasp is the fact that all of us would love a little health care reform, but want nothing to do with anything that even resembles this insane boondoggle he is trying to force feed the American people!

Mr President, give us some tort reform, make insurance policies portable, deregulate so people can buy insurance nationwide instead of only within their state, and then get out of the way!

One could write a great health care reform bill in ten pages or less! It is beyond ridiculous that we have a health care monstrosity, that really does little for health care, or reform, and takes 1017 pages to do it!

Mr President, maybe you should listen to the advice of Sgt Joe Friday and Officer Bill Gannon:
