Please post your updates from D.C. and from news reports here as well as your photos of the day.

Our Walter Reed salute to the troops last night was very well attended. Upwards of 800 people were there over the three-plus hours of the demonstration.

Photos and video taken by This Ain'tHell taken in daylight before the bulk of the crowd showed can be viewed here.

Free Republic 9/11 Candlelight Vigil from Washington DC

Update: 9-12 March on DC

There don’t appear to be any ACORN thugs there? All I can see are patriots!

Thanks Uncle Ike! Did they mention the number of Patriots in attendance? Last question - is Beck going to be there?

the gal I spoke to here in Michigan that organized 3 buses out of Madison Hgts had stated that she needed a count of attendants so that there would be enough porta potties to cover the event in DC. She was suppose to forward this info to the DC police.

Gad’s I wish we could have gone.. Enjoying the posts here and the web cams. This is fabulous!

” is Beck going to be there? “

Last I heard, Beck is going to be in the New York studio anchoring the live coverage...

Haven’t been paying close enough attention (it *is* f&f after all) to hear what numbers, if any, they’ve been reporting.... ;)

Yup, Beck will be there. I hope Fox shows reruns all weekend of it b/c I don’t TIVO and I won’t be home today to see it. I’ll be at my local Tea Party protest. So far, the news coverage on this has been disappointing. They should be broadcasting from DC today.

You may be right — I thought I heard that he was going to be in the NY studios, but that may have changed...

Guess we’ll have to wait and see... ;)

That’s fine. They just don’t get it. Maybe they will finally get it in Nov. 2010 when the tax and spend, borrow and spend politicians get a big, fat pink slip.

It would be almost impossible for Glenn to appear at the rally. The security would be a nightmare.

Remember, he's stepping on....nay.....crushing some of the highest toes in the land, and the Administration thugs play rough.

Will Jim Robinson be in Washington today? If so, any chance of TV coverage? If not Jim, who is our main guy/gal on the scene?

I hear Jim Thompson might make an appearance, along with John Galt... ;)

That being said, each and every person who took the time and spent their hard-earned money to be there is a "main guy/gal" in my book. Go FReepers!

Looking at the Trafficland RoofCam, it appears that the crowd now stretches along Pennsylvania Avenue past the Reagan/Commerce Building and past the cross street at the western edge of the Old Post Office Building (12th St and heading toward 11th) Freedom Plaza is at 14th.

That's a whole lot of people!

Not sure where the stage is, but I was able to zoom in on the map and turn on the satellite view. You can tell from that that the camera is pointed East-South-East.

The Fox Business block opened with a split screen. At least 60% of the screen is a live cam of the Tea Party. It’s great. I’m so jealous I’m not there!
