Even though the president is too much of a coward to face the enraged citizens in a conservative area, we're planning on being at the Fresno airport anyway. Should be a protest crowd there somewhere. I see on the Central Valley Tea Party site that they are planning a response. Time and place TBA.

GOOD on you dearest Jim and y’all.

The Marxist is a full blown coward, afraid to face the good people of Fresno.

He’s too much of a coward to even meet with local elected officials — who are not fellow ‘Rats.

“Rep. Jim Costa, a Fresno Democrat, will arrive with Obama aboard Air Force One, as will California’s two senators, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. Both are Democrats.

“Rep. Devin Nunes, a Visalia Republican, had not been invited as of Wednesday to participate in the president’s visit, said Nunes’ chief of staff Johnny Amaral. Tal Eslick, chief of staff for Rep. David Valadao, R-Hanford, said his boss had requested time with Obama to talk about the drought, but had not yet received a reply, nor had he received any details about the Valley visit.”

Military prepares for President Obama's visit to Fresno


~snips~
President Barack Obama's trip to Fresno is scheduled for Friday, but signs of his arrival are already visible.
A military transport plane and presidential aircraft are parked at Fresno's airport.

The presidential choppers and the Ospreys came off a big transport plane and are being readied at the Army National Guard base. The aircraft are expected to be used to carry the president and his entourage on a tour of the Valley.

Congressman Jim Costa of Fresno will be accompanying the president. He told us by phone from Washington, President Obama is deeply concerned about the drought.

"He wanted to see first-hand the impacts of very, very productive land that doesn't have surface water and well water, and we are working on that, and we hope it will be a very productive visit," said Costa.

Security will of course be tight.

Has the potential of being even worse! President Obama and King Abdullah II are expected to discuss Middle East peace and the civil war in Syria.

Welcome Obama with waving American flags and lots of noise. ... Reason being ... Don't screw up the lives of the good people on his security team.

Time, and tide turning, will take proper care of Obama

Let me guess...Obama's going to enhance productivity by pissing on the parched, conservative Central Valley.

Jim Costa belongs in the unemployment line. Well, so does Barry Soetoro.

You’re right about both of those worthless demoinc-rats.

The coward is NOT meeting the public. He’s taking a pre-arranged, useless tour. For him, it’s a nothing-burger pit-stop.

If you’re involved in the Tea Party, 9/12, or ANY other grassroots groups, the new IRS rules will make it ILLEGAL for you to:

Mention a candidate up for re-election within 60 days of an election. That includes every single member of the House of Representatives – you won’t be able petition your own representatives.
Register voters.
Call for the election or defeat of a political candidate.
Hold candidate forums so voters can decide who would best represent them.

For Fertile Seeds to make Airport signs, Ponder this:

____________________

As Americans, WE are used to patiently, and silently waiting for solutions to problems to come from the top down.

This lazy attitude has been the basis for most Corporate and Political Management structures in America for most of OUR History.

WE now have the ultimate in lazy, top-down, political structure: a rouge dictator whom WE allow to be above OUR Constitutional Law.

WE will continue to have the current Obama Dictatorship as long as the Chief Impeachment Official, ( CIO ), the Speaker of the House, is allowed by US to permit Obama to continue as a OUR Dictator.

In all of Obama’s public statements, he has told the truth to US only twice:
1.) “We are only five days away from fundamentally changing the United States of America.”

and

2.) “I have a pen and a telephone, and I will use them to issue Executive Orders whenever Congress fails to act.”

Obama has thus defined himself to be OUR Dictator, and formally gave US fair warning of his intentions to do so.

For reasons that border on High Treason to the United States of America, Boehner as Speaker of the House, has failed his Constitutional Duty to begin Impeachment Proceedings on B. Hussein Obama.

The Members of the US House of Representatives have refused to force Boehner to resign; then to elect a Speaker with the required Sense of Honor to do his/her Constitutional Duty to begin Formal Impeachment Proceedings on B. Hussein Obama.

If WE, the taxpayers, do not force the Members of the US House of Representatives to replace Boehner as Speaker with a new Speaker that will issue the necessary Articles of Impeachment on B. Hussein Obama, then WE, the lazy, silent majority taxpayers, deserve to continue to have OUR Liberties crushed by Dictator Obama.

The future of OUR Republic is, as always, in OUR hands.

DONT TREAD ON ME

YES! It's about time We the People show some passion and give obozo some in your face with a show of OUR FACE in HIS FACE. I pray that you have a good turnout, Jim...Illinois is a ways from CA, or else I'd be there with you. Come on California Tea Party folks and every other red blooded American who believes in the Constitution, liberty and freedom...get out there and send a message and make your numbers count.

The trip has nothing to do with the drought, it is all about playing golf in Palm Springs.

OK thanks for the link.

Your original statement...

If you’re involved in the Tea Party, 9/12, or ANY other grassroots groups, the new IRS rules will make it ILLEGAL for you to etc
...didn't make it clear it was Only those that have a status (501 etc) filed with the IRS.

Many TPM and grassroots groups are not of that type, so it wouldn't effect them. Not that the gov wouldn't try, and in fact is demonizing all conservative groups.

No need to use the tactics of the leftists/dems.

As Jim Robinson showed while protesting Obama Friday words are the best weapon.

He used them masterfully against a bully who threatened him with violence.

(The sign is a bit hard to read in this pic, but it says "OBAMA LIED")

Oh, I dunno. A load of fetid egg yolk on that aggressor’s face would have certain historical precedent in the way Ethan Allen treated Connecticut tax collectors.

Come to think of it, the IRS needs similar treatment.
