FREEPER VICTORY! Secret Service Ejects Press Pass Bearing Code Pink Protester from McCain Speech
Wednesday, July 9, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/08/2008 9:38:37 PM PDT by kristinn

Who read Free Republic? Apparently the U.S. Secret Service does!

This past weekend, I posted an article alerting the Secret Service that members of the terrorist supporting group Code Pink were using fake presses to gain access to events headlined by Secret Service protectees like presumptive Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (AZ).

This morning, McCain spoke at the LULAC convention in Washington, D.C. Usually when he speaks at an event in D.C., McCain can expect to have his speech disrupted by Code Pink activists who rush the stage and heckle him from the audience and the press section.

That didn't happen today. I followed press coverage of the speech and no disturbances were reported. Now I know why.

A Code Pink protester going by the name Jennifer Tequia posted about her experience today at the McCain speech. I'll let her tell her story:

This morning I attempted to watch McCain give a speech at the LULAC convention at the Hilton.

I had a press pass to get in but not 5 minutes later was removed by Secret Service agents. The LULAC representative told me that even if I was registered he would not let me in and would not give me any reason. I got the impression that he really wanted me to be able to stay but that the Secret Service told him to have me leave.

I exited the property with no fuss and was followed out by 2-4 Secret Service agents. I was not raising a ruckus or resisting at ALL. I simply walked myself off.

A block and a half later on public sidewalk one of the agents walked up to me unannounced and totally spooked me by being so close to me and put a camera in my face and without permission took my photo.

I then later went back to the area of the Hilton and (staying across the street on public sidewalk) spoke to the press and private people. I told them that I am a teacher and came all the way across the country at my own expense for a month to try to get our nation's financial and moral priorities back on track.

I spoke about not having money for books but trillions for war. Most I spoke to very moved by my story and shared my deep worry about a new war with Iran.

The Secret Service agent showed up again and followed me around a bit. I asked him for his badge number. He refused to give it to me.

I repeatedly asked him, "Sir, what is your badge number?" and he either said, "I am doing a job" or refused to answer.

I asked him his last name and he refused.

I have posted the photo of this man so you can see the image of a man who is in violation of his duties - he removed me without cause, followed me on public property on two seperate occassions and refused to identify himself (which makes me strongly suspect he was not doing what he was supposed to do and feared me reporting him).

McCain was whisked inside so I didn't even get to take his photo or see him at all.

That war criminal knows how to be seen when it works to his benefit and not seen when it doesn't, let me tell you.

Poor Jennifer, busted with a phoney press pass. I wonder if she teaches her students how to cheat on their exams.

Looks like Medea Benjamin will have to come up with a new scheme to infiltrate Secret Service protected events.

GOOD WORK, SECRET SERVICE!

No one needs to your permission to take your photo in a public place.

I am a teacher

Why am I not surprised? I have two sister in-laws that are both teachers and both incredibly dumb.

A new landmark Supreme Court ruling in the making?

"Coconutt2000 Vs. Board of Education"

Today the Supreme Court ruled it is illegal for teachers to engage in political speech inside a public classroom unless the course is specifically related to political science and then only if both sides of the political argument are given equal airing with the teacher showing preference for neither.

I know what you mean. I play a lot of Pogo games for that very reason. Sometimes you’ve got to let go of all this stuff for a while.

BTW, I’m so happy I got to ping everyone to a normal thread and not something crazy that somehow involved me. ;-)

Good job.

I will join you IN OPPOSITION TO CODE PINK.

However, I cannot join anyone in SUPPORT OF JOHN McCAIN.

This just goes to show that if he were elected President, and proceeded to put in liberal policy after liberal policy, with a RINO/Lib Cabinet, conservatives would be neutralized to the point we could expect (as in the case of either years of "W" to my knowledge), a single "FREEP THE WHITE HOUSE".

Good job, though.

Seems like a phony press pass would be a crime. Sounds like the SS was not doing their job. Pinkies should have been arrested.

If they don't have money for books it's because of the salary and benefits that these whining "educators" get by using their union dues to corrupt the political process.

And they always make certain to cut programs and supplies to pass larger budgets that go for increased pay because it creates an issue similar to beating a puppy.

Unethical and whining thieves.

“So they call McCain a war criminal too? I’d love to hear how they justify that one.”


You are way too easy! He fought in Vietnam against the Communists! That is the definition of a “war criminal” to the left.

“Where does it say she had a phony press pass?”

I was thinking the same thing. They might have had phoney press passes but the previous article cited says they have been thrown out of other events which shows the SS and McCain campaign have done their research and know who these woman are and probably have photos of them. They’re looking for them.

It amazes me what Kristinn will take credit for.

Actually, it doesn’t.

More sour grapes from Bobster ping.

Hey Bob, Kristinn posted an article about the Pinkos using fake press passes (you can look that article up and read it for more on the story), and then Freepers got on the ball and sent emails, made phone calls and other actions, to alert the LEOs about this lefty tactic. Kristinn posted the story, but it was many Freepers who used the info and won this battle.

Whining does not become you, Bob. Why don't you go bleach your hair or something.

Well, McCain voted to go into Iraq and do harm to the poor, innocent terrorists, and Barack Obama decided that going after regimes that harbor, train and fund terrorists was a bad idea.

Sadly, I understand all too well that senators and congress members are living in a bubble and are more concerned with protecting themselves and their positions than doing what is right and just.

You have no idea what people and organizations have been contacted in getting the word out. Or what their response has been.

If they and I don’t have a problem with Kristinn’s post, who cares about your clueless on the sidelines rants.

Come back when you’ve got something worthwhile.
