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.
Somebody tried that back in April of 1861. It didn’t turn out so well.
Yes, and the enemies of the people further identify themselves.
Bingo! The caller actually said...’we are all working for the same goals’...lol...I replied..firmly..”NO..unfortunately we are not!” He quickly hung up after that!
They are working for a police state.
We are working against a police state.
Not the same goals!!!!
If these were La Raza goons, the CHP would not be doing a thing to impede them.
It seems like they are goading us into a fight
The dynamics are different now
Tell them there is no money left for them, after we’ve been taxed to death to pay for a 100 million dollar presidential vacation.
Also, I can’t donate, the IRS may target me. Sorry.
Before the rebels were on the side that had slavery.
This time the rebels will be fighting against slavery.
Perfect!! Will try that next time...lol.
“The MSM will ignore.....”
This is exactly when talk radio all around the country and FOX should pound the drum non-stop in outrage until the rights of citizens are recognized.
If they don’t give this more than token coverage, we’ll know where they truly stand.
Watch live on right scoop
Seems to me like the place to be is on the Mall side of the Capitol. Isn’t that the South side ... facing Virginia?
I am not sure but shouldn’t be too hard to find out.
These aren’t your GGGF Yankees, this group is a bunch of girly men.
Yeah, but if you haven’t noticed about every gun manufacturer is moving out of the Blue States.
Were I so fortunate to be able to be in DC today I'd just walk around to the other side of the building, I don't have a big red "Tea Party" painted on my forehead.
Look the Capitol Storm Troopers could start shooting Tea Party-ers dead and it wouldn’t make the news.
Yet in Kansas, illegals assembled and protested on the PRIVATE PROPERTY/FRONT LAWN of the Kansas Governor because they don’t like his hard line against illegal aliens!!!
Sure sounds racist to me! Imagine the CP saying that to a group of NAACP supporters!
After BO did the secret flyover at the huge Tea Party rally before 2010 he gave the orders to shut down the Tea Party by using the IRS and to keep them from protesting no matter what it takes. The Capitol police are accommodating him. This comes from the top, make no mistake. Can’t have BO looking bad again now can we?
Yep..saw that..outrageous. Gated community too. How did they get in? Why did it take the police over 15 minutes to get there?
Was the other group warned not to attend the IRS rally?
This is soooo bogus.
I would think a few statements about class action lawsuits against the Capitol Hill Police might get someone’s attention.
Thanks SP! The servers are overloaded right now but will try again in a minute.
Actually, it was going quite well until Lincoln issued an executive order to acquire many thousands of inspired and motivated combatants for the blue side to replace the thousands upon thousands of blue deserters.
You're right though, the outcome was never really in question and to this day the South has never recovered from the utter destruction of their economy but especially, - the culture - and I'm not talking about a slave owning culture.
Never in the history of US armed conflict did the United States wipe out completely an enemy culture - the Germans, Japanese, - culture not only survived but flourished - Islam? - we currently celebrate all that is Islam. Why, we even have a muslim chief executive.
Tell me I haven't lived long enough.
Don’t the Capitol Police work for Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner? This isn’t Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz or Mr. Obama doing this.
I can be loaded and ready to go in a half hour.
“...The notion that citizens can’t attend an event featuring duly elected Representatives in a public space is absurd...”
Evidently, it’s no longer a “notion”... would seem to be a fact.
Just called my Texas Congressman and talked to a nice young man who was very interested/concerned to hear about them being blocked from attending the immigration rally/press conference. Asked him to see if my congressman could look into it.
