Skip to comments.Capitol Police to Tea Party: Show Us Your Websites or Forget Your Rally
Posted on 06/04/2013 2:03:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
CAPITOL POLICE SUDDENLY WANTS TO SEE TEA PARTY WEBSITES BEFORE PROTEST APPROVED.
And they are taking weeks to grant the request.
The Tea Party Patriots were planning a rally in Washington DC on Wednesday June 19th.
But they ran into a wall.
The Capitol Police want to see their websites first.
Kevin Mooneyhan from the Tea Party Patriots described this latest assault on the Tea Party:
Below is the timeline of events surrounding our June 19th rally at the Capitol. We havent done anything to publicize this event yet because we wanted to make sure we had the permit in hand. You know, follow the rules, do the right thing, etc.
Event Date: June 19, 2013 Permit Submitted: 5/22/2013 via fax
Officer Brown contacted me on 5/23 to ask me 2 questions If we would have a banner and if so what the dimensions would be and how we would hang it.
If we were going to have buses and to make sure that we coordinated with Union Station since the Capitol couldnt accommodate buses.
The impression that I got was that it would likely be approved in a few days. She told me, Hopefully the next time you hear from me, it will be to let you know that the permit is approved.
The following Tuesday, 5/28/13 I reached out to Officer Brown for an update....

Bammy IS your RULER!
The Capitol police know that the Tea Party people will actually clean up the place before they leave....why don’t they want the Tea Party to come in and clean it up again? I don’t understand...
This is what it looks like.
When your Government turns on you.
It’s an amazing, and dark, time to be alive in the USA.
If you sat out the last election... You’re just so awesome and principled.
zero wants a fight ... a show down.
That’s because OWS and that ilk have people on the inside getting approvals and smoothing everything over at the start.
Revolt is coming.
So where is the outrage from the House and Senate GOP?
Why isn’t phone calls being made by Bonehead and Cantor.
Interesting because, among other things, after the 2 prior Tea Party rallies in DC, you could not find a piece of trash on the Capitol grounds, or on the Mall or PA Ave.
What makes you think that the Republicans like the Tea Party any more than the Democrats do?
Bonehead and Cantor don’t like the Tea Party any better than Obama and Pelosi do.
and people wondered where the Tea Party disappeared to in the 2012 election
Have a one-page website with Lloyd Marcus’s photo. Any delay or denial would be Ray-ciss!
I was in that march, and while I was standing on the west lawn, I watch Marine One fly over.
Only one person is permitted to fly in that zone.
I know in my bones, that we became his enemy on that day.
Shakedown government. We have crossed over to the dark side. And half the country either doesn’t know, doesn’t care or is part of it.
We are in for more troubling times before, or if we ever see the light of day.
Don’t show them squat, rally anyway.
Welcome to the communist-Islamist dictatorship known as the United States. So sad.
Oh it’s believable. I think the federal gummint at every level is slow-walking and stonewalling conservatives who want to have a voice. It’s a game to them: They know they’ll have to eventually approve the permits, but if they stall long enough the organizers won’t have sufficient lead time. Then the press will take up the slack by pointing out how small the crowds are.
It’s just another brush stroke on the painting.
Just do it.
Why would you think that Boener and Cantor would do something in support of the Tea Party, just because it involves defending our constitutional right to assemble freely and to petition the government for our grievances? You obviously have them confused with principled conservatives.
Why are Cruz/Paul/Lee/Kelly/Gowdy and a few others being quiet?
More illegal activity by the Obama administration!
Will he fly away 19 Jan 2016
Are the muslims having any problems setting up their 9/11/13 march on DC? I doubt it, probably smooth sailing like JayZ and Beyoncé in Cuba.
No. There will be no standing. The permits will be approved, but late enough to damage the cause.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
By my way of thinking, a "peaceable" assembly doesn't require anyone's approval. Period.
God said I have a right to gather with others.
Just do the rally anyways.
Rule followers don’t count in Obamaworld. The laws as written, mean nothing, UNLESS it works in Obama”s favor. See illegal immigration. See voter fraud. See secret e-mail accounts. See IRS scandal. See Fast and Furious....ad nauseum.
Betcha they wouldn’t demand this of a socialist/leftist group such as NOW or the New Negro Panthers or some such thing ...
Show up in the hundreds of thousands on June 19th.
What are they going to do, stamp their feet and cry?
They treated OWS with kid gloves and give the Tea Party a hard time?
OWS-DC had to get permits from the DC Metropolitan police, they never ‘occupied’ Capitol grounds so far as I remember. This permit is to assemble on the Capitol grounds, so different police force, the Capitol Police. (there’s also the Park Police that might get involved if they want to assemble on the Mall)
Then there will be angry blowback in turn.
Waiting on the final SC decision of 5 - 4 for the homosexuals to finish our nation. Cannot be far off or far away.
Actually the rule was (I know because I stood in the freezing rain for over two hours waiting)they can not even begin the Inaugural Parade until after the past president has left the city.
Cyber Liberty ~:” ... Its just another brush stroke on the painting. “
Either that or
just .. “a few bumps in the road “ .
Patrick Henry would know what to do .. !
Makes me want to do more for the Tea Party movement.
Velcome to Amerika, comrade. You must be state-approved before you can have zee protest.
The GOPe sure don’t.
Until IMPEACHMENT is discussed in the House seriously, noting is going to change for the next 3-1/2 years.
Well come onnnn, it’s not like the Tea party are like the Occupy Wall street terrorists who smash up small businesses and crap on cop cars. You have to be like them if you want to protest and not only that but also have the added bonus of camping out for months on end stinking up the streets, doing illegal drugs and raping women.
I didn’t see where they asked for websites (which, if your site has good SEO, they’ll be able to find without your help). They asked whether your group used Instagram or Twitter - perhaps because it could asseme a flash mob? I don’t know, as long as they ask the same of every group to anticipate security concerns, is that so bad?
>> I dont understand...
Put out the word to go to the district of corruption on date and time specified.
Make them stop us.
Can we help it if everybody had the same idea at the same time?
