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
Angels have been dispatched and prayers are up for all patriots; particularly those in D.C.. We are with you in heart, spirit and mind. Thank you for carrying the banner.
“Just read that Barry will be in Minnesota today pushing Deathcare...”
What time? Would he EVEN attempt to preempt Glenn Beck’s 9/12 show this afternoon?
Hanging in there with all you guys in DC. Give’em hell.
[Would he EVEN attempt to preempt Glenn Becks 9/12 show this afternoon?]
FOX better not let him. It is out turn to talk. We’ve all heard Obama’s lies.
this past week:
“’We're pinned down:’ 4 U.S. Marines die in Afghan ambush..”
They called for air cover; The answer, according to obama’s new ROE? tough - don't want to kill the tallies.
For the CIC to aid and abet the enemy, directly causing and allowing the death of our troops = who now are not allowed air cover - even when ambushed and pinned down, receiving fire and asking for help - are DINIED help - and get killed - in this case - the most marines killed in one battle since the beginning of the war - Is this not treason.
our traitor in chief is aiding and abetting our enemy in killing our troops = ducks in a shooting gallery and not allowed to defend themselves - no cover.
August was the deadliest month of the whole war for our troops = Sept is setting up to be even worse...because of the new ROE - Rules of Engagement...
which are NOT to provide air cover for our troops, even when ambushed, pinned down and being killed. (the rationale for these new ROE’s admits that it will cause more deaths for our troops now but that it will be worth it in the long run. Worth it for WHO? How “”LONG” is that run?)
That is treason. Pure and simple. That is aiding and abetting the enemy, who now knows THEY have the cover, not our troops - and they are ramping it up.
We need to slam Rush, Beck and all with emails demanding that our traitor in chief DEFEND OUR TROOPS,NOT THE TALIBAN.
send them the above link about the battle - the same battles our troops are now subjected to daily.
I am sick - frightened and sick...and our troops feel they are being sent to be fodder for the enemy - who are the real friends of our CIC?
We need to get the Tea Party folk to make signs saying: DEFEND OUR TROOPS,NOT THE TALIBAN...
and make our own signs and stand on the main intersections every day - at least weekends...get folks together - go to your local VFW and such halls and recruit -
Do this in your towns NOW - google for your local Tea Parties in your state...
MAKE YOUR SIGNS and gather friends and get downtown - have flags and music - Greenwoods “Glad to Be an American” is a good one. Alert your local newspapers and let them know you expect coverage. Hand out print outs of this battle, include the URL.
Write letters to the editor and just put the headline:
“’We're pinned down:’ 4 U.S. Marines die in Afghan ambush..”
Make those signs: DENIED AIR COVER as they were being killed...under the “DEFEND OUR TROOPS, NOT THE TALIBAN” - “Honk for our TRoops”
and include the web link -
and the facts about the new ROE and how deadly it has already been -
(Where's the presses outrage now?)
Let's Roll -
Maybe a separate thread for pics??
(There I go thinking, again... ;))
Good thinking ;)
Give em hell, guys!
We’ll be at the Tea Party at Bushy Run Battlefield in Westmoreland Co, Pa. We’re with you DC’ers in spirit!

Live Traffic cam view:
Is there a live-stream anywhere?
Sorry for typos. I am iPhone freeping.
With you in spirit.....Keep us posted.
It may rain later, but there is no rain anywhere near you right now...
Dang well Tikilive is already up to 600 folks, you know they max out at 1000.
Give ‘em hell for me, would ya, please?
Sorry that I can’t be there but I will be watching on Fox this afternoon.
WOW!! Look at all the people!
As soon as I landed at the web cam I saw four people come out on the roof of that building. There looks to be a very large crown down below. Wonder what they’re doing there.
GIVE ‘EM HELL, FREEPERS!!
Thanks for keeping us posted, Hildy. I’ll be in Denver at the State Capitol today - wish I could be with you in DC!
I’m so excited. I got to meet Jimrob (Jim Thompson, sorry) and Kristinn on the same day!!!!!
That is cool, you can see the marchers gathering, looks like a great turnout!
Bless you all Don-O, we are marching for all of you!
HOLY CRAP! That's A LOT OF PEOPLE, and two hours before the march starts, too!!!
I met Jimrob when they came through Jackson Michigan. I’m hoping there were FReepers in every city they went through.
Our thoughts and prayers will be with you today from the tea party in Naples, FL!!
Make as much noise and mayhem (short of vandalism) as you can.
Fantastic! I love it.
I hope it all goes good.
Holy mackerel! Look at the crowd!
CNN is doing live broadcasts
actually explaining why one reporter doesn’t have many people behind him..because the march hasn’t started yet..
Yea I have low speed high speed too, usually the freetube link works best for me when the others are buffering too much so you might wanna keep that in mind, looks like they’ll be a number of other streaming links available too, including CSpan, tho I prefer the Beck coverage.
God be with you!
Quite a crowd gathering! Zero media coverage likely, no matter how many thousands hit the street.
Hildy, you are hereby absolved of ALL TYPOS today! God bless you for your coverage, and this serves as warning that I will freep anyone in the buttocks who dare impune your Iphone live updates!! xoxo, you are in my prayers and I will be standing with you in solidarity on a bridge in my area from 4-7 pm today as a new job prevented my attendance in DC!
Looks like CSPAN will start coverage at 1 pm EST.
I wish the live cam showed the other direction too.
Is this being covered by any of the other so-called mainstream media?
Another cam view nearby
thanks for the advice. I will be thrilled to see coverage anywhere, especially links on FR!! This is awesome!
To bad we can’t pan & tilt.
Thank you for the link!!!
CNN is trying to make this look like it is ‘sparsely attended’ with the usual BS camera angles. That isn’t going to work for long...
