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
New live feed
My FoxNews feed just went choppy and jerky.. (pun not intentional, but I think I’ll keep it..)
Can anybody point me to a ‘clean’ live-feed for FNC??
That's 90 more minutes for even more people to arrive and fill the streets!!
It looks like it is going to reach all the way down the street to the steps of the capitol! It has grown three blocks or more since I started watching it a bit ago.
This is epic. Absolutely epic. No porta-potties, though
Here is a link to the agenda on Freedom works.
Everytime I refresh... there is less street showing.. solid people...wall to wall!
Two of my favorites:
"The Constitution is the other document they didn't read!"
"Bankrupt Amercia ---- Yes We Can!"
No PORTA POTTIES? Who dropped the ball on that one? The city?
Who is covering it live on TV?? I would prefer NOT to watch CNN...is Fox covering live now?
Yes, we need I live link, who is broadcasting Glenn over the web today, I have to do it via laptop, I do not have access to a TV
Great Googly! the crowd has just taken over the street too!
I’m really proud and happy for those patriots that could be there and represent those of us that couldn’t make it!
Everywhere you look there are people. Yes I am freeping while marching.
Beck will not be there. He is covering it for Fox news.
Looks like they have started marching to the Capital:
Fox needs to get up on that roof! It’s amazing.
Is Obama REALLY going out to Minnesota to hold his own rally?!
I have trouble with Fox no matter which service I use. Maybe because it has more viewers. When watching CNN I didnt have any of those problems.
Are there different rallies going on....Will everyone at sometime come together?
Are there really no porta potties there? Who is responsible for placing porta potties at events like this? Do we need to call the city and demand they get some down there?
I’ve been monitoring CSPAN but nothing yet. CSPAN does web simulcasting is anyone is without TV.
Piece of shipola. Leaving the town. LOSER!
[Folks look at the traffic cam the crowd is huge.....]
There are people as far as the eye can see!! I sure wish I could have been there!!
Hildy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO GO GO!!!!!!!!!
We are so excited!!!
The day is young. This is only going to get better.
Or is that just the crowd swelling?
It’s more crowded than NYC at rush hour but these are All American Patriots!
Is that because they are already marching???? Or just because of the crowd?
The Crowd is Huge!! Go Freedom Fighters
Pray for the March
The little tot in the stroller asleep:
“PATRIOT IN TRAINING”
Geez. This is beautiful. BEAUTIFUL!!!!
He’s a p!ssy.
Has he left yet? Wondering if the Helicopter has to fly over the crowd.
MSNBC will be covering Obama's rally live, of course.
I am at work but been told Fox is covering this.
Might try this
This is freakin’ AWESOME!!!
Bulls & Bears is on FOX right now. For a while they had a split screen up showing the march but it’s gone now. Beck will be covering it live from 1 - 3 on FOX but he won’t be there.
I don’t think they are marching yet. I think the crowd is simply growing exponentially.
crowd marching . . .
I can't believe that Obama would pit himself against American citizens like this. He'll do anything to silence us.
When I started checking it about a half hour ago, the crowd ended where the second building on the right begins. Now the crowd extends so far down the street that you can’t tell by that webcam where it ends!! I am so proud of my fellow Americans!! I wish so badly that I could be there.
[Yes, Obama is countering the rally with his own in Minnesota at 1 p.m., the same time as the Tea Party rally at the Capitol!]
What a sorry POS! This is the American people’s day to be heard!
Here's a zoom in on the camera and an arrow showing what direction it is pointing.

The march is ON!
Wow that makes my heart swell with pride at the number of patriots willing to stop their lives if for a day or two to speak out against big government. I wish I had the money and the ability to be their right now.
See you there!
[Who is covering it live on TV?? I would prefer NOT to watch CNN...is Fox covering live now?]
Yes. FNC has been showing a split screen. I want them to be on the ground. They also need to be showing overhead shots.
LOL.... I just saw on MSNBC ,,, they HAD TO report on this and the huge crowd.... loving it !!!
