Posted on 06/19/2013 8:10:38 AM PDT by penelopesire
Capitol Hill police are trying to block activists attending Wednesday's "Audit the IRS" rally from also attending a nearly day-long press conference on immigration, hosted by Reps. Steve King and Louie Gohmert. The IRS rally is on the west side of the Capitol, while the immigration event is on the east side. Organizers for the IRS event were told by Hill police that "your people" can only assemble on the west side. Organizers were told to remove the activists from the immigration event. Capitol Hill police left a voicemail for Kevin Mooneyhan, Deputy Executive Director of Tea Party Patriots, saying that "your people" only are permitted to assemble for the event on the west side of the Capitol. The activists' presence at the immigration event on the east side, supposedly violates the terms of the Tea Party's permit. Mooneyhan was instructed to move any activists who planned on attending the Tea Party rally away from the immigration event. Keep in mind, the immigration event is hosted by sitting members of Congress. The notion that citizens can't attend an event featuring duly elected Representatives in a public space is absurd.

The police state in action.
Adams and Jefferson would be passing out the musket balls by now.
If it were the Occutards, the Capitol Police would have been there with port-a-potties hundreds of cases of cold Perrier.
Welcome to ObaMao’s America: Where every citizen is treated like a terrorist and every terrorist and illegal alien is treated like a citizen.
The rights of citizens to peacefully assemble...
Has a faint ring to it...
The MSM will ignore.....
One day, our 1st amendment protected rights to peaceably assemble will be defended by so many marchers descending on Washington that no Capitol police force will have any say in the matter.
Call your elected hack at 202-224-3121 immediately. Remind them of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Fyi.....I have been getting calls for the last few days from every GOPe organization out there soliciting money. Typical ploy by them...they want money now, before they vote for immigration bill and let us all down. They do this all the time. I told them no money til I see where this bill goes. I humbly suggest my fellow FReepers do the same. I told them that only Tea Party conservatives will get my money for the foreseeable future.
no kidding..illegals aliens allowed into rep Steve Kings office. American citizens not allowed at immigration event.
Right! Because they know if this bill passes.. this little window will be the last time they have any chance of getting any money.
The only way to get the attention of FedGov is for a state to shell one of their Army forts.
