Posted on 08/22/2009 9:42:25 AM PDT by Danae
This is a real letter a very good friend of mine got from a friend of hers who attended the Town Hall in Montana. Neither wanted to have their names on the internet and I am respecting that. Given what this former Obama supporter(yea really, and she was pretty hard core over the moon for Obama as well) I take her account even more seriously.
By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana last Friday. However, there are many things that the major news has not covered. I feel that since XXXXX and I live here and we were at the airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you decide to do with the information is up to you. If you chose to share this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email address before you forward this on.
On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President would be coming here. There are many groups here that are against his healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talking and deciding on what they were going to do. The White House would not release ANY details other than the date.
On about Tuesday XXXXX found out that they would be holding the "Town Hall" at the airport. (This is only because XXXXXX knows EVERYONE at the airport) Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade (tiny town) in a very remote location. Nothing is around there. They chose to use a hangar that is the most remotely located hangar. You could not pick a more remote location, and you can not get to it easily. It is totally secluded from the public.
FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held a large amount of folks with sufficient parking. (gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and would not have to be SHIPPED IN!! $$$$$
During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped in constantly. Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though it was our President coming several expressed how excessive it was, especially during a recession. $$$$$
Late Tuesday/early Wednesday the 12th, they said that tickets would be handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations and the president would be arriving around 12:30 Friday.
Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out. However, 1500 were printed at a Local printing shop per White House request. Hmmmm......900 tickets just DISAPPEARED.
This same morning someone called into the radio from the local UPS branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobster were shipped in for Obama. Montana has some of the best beef in the nation!!! And it would have been really wonderful to help out the local economy. Anyone heard of the Recession?? Just think...with all of the traveling the White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what else we are paying for.
On Friday XXXXXX and I got out to the airport about 10:45am. The groups that wanted to protest Obama's spending and healthcare had gotten a permit to protest and that area was roped off. But that was not to be. A large bus carrying SEIU (Service Employees International Union) members drove up onto the area (illegal)and unloaded right there. It was quite a commotion and there were specifically 2 SEIU men trying to make trouble and start a fight. Police did get involved and arrested the one man but they said they did not have the manpower to remove the SEIU crowd.
The SEIU crowd was very organized and young. About 99% were under the age of 30 and they were not locals! They had bullhorns and PROFESSIONALLY made signs. Some even wore preprinted T-shirts. Oh, and Planned Parenthood folks were with them.....professing abortion rights with their T-shirts and preprinted signs. (BTW, all these folks did have a permit to protest in ANOTHER area)
Those against healthcare/spending moved away from the SEIU crowd to avoid confrontation. They were orderly and respectful. Even though SEIU kept coming over and walking through, continuing to be very intimidating and aggressive at the direction of the one SEIU man.
So we had Montana folks from ALL OVER the state with their homemade signs and their DOGS with homemade signs. We had cowboys, nurses, doctors you name it. There was even a guy from Texas who had been driving through. He found out about the occasion, went to the store, made a sign, and came to protest.
If you are wondering about the press.....Well, all of the major networks were over by that remote hangar I mentioned. They were conveniently parked on the other side of the buildings FAR away. None of these crowds were even visible to them. I have my doubts that they knew anything about the crowds.
We did have some local news media around us from this state and Idaho. Speaking of the local media...they were invited. However, all questions were to be turned into the White House in advance of the event. Wouldn't want anyone to have to think off the top of their head.
It was very obvious that it was meant to be totally controlled by the White House. Everything was orchestrated down to the last detail to make it appear that Montana is just crazy for Obama and government healthcare. Even those people that talked about their insurance woes........the White House called our local HRDC (Human Resource and Development Committee) and asked for names. Then the White House asked those folks to come. Smoke and mirrors...EVERYTHING was staged!!!!!!!!!!!
I am very dismayed about what I learned about our current White House. The amount of control and manipulation was unbelievable. I felt I was not living in the United States of America, more like the USSR!! I was physically nauseous. XXXXX and I have been around when Presidents or Heads of State visit. It has NEVER been like this. I am truly very frightened for our country.
America needs your prayers and your voices. If you care about our country please get involved. Know the issues. And let Congress hear your voices again and again!! If they are willing to put forth so much effort to BULLY a small town one can only imagine what is going on in Washington DC. Scary!!
This doesn’t surprise me. Between the bussed-in SEIU goons and, I assume, the mine worker’s unions, the entire event was controlled and staged.
In the end, this bullshit is getting around through back channels and real Americans are (if they haven't already) coming to know evil when it sits in their White House.
The press is as tightly managed as the events, and they are just going along with it. Thats the AMAZING part! The press has been tamed with threats to their jobs and families according to Canada Free Press.... Its sick. Can you imagine the Press’s reaction if the BUSH Administration pulled ANY of that kind of crap? OMG it would have been bigger than a Nuclear weapon being set off in Moscow.
This has made it into the e-mail of most of the people I know. I tend not to think too much of it without any other supporting evidence/witnesses. And if these people are SO concerned, then why the heck are they not booking themselves on FOX? Surely, someonelse MUST have seen something and are not quivering in their boots afraid to mention it.
Where are their pics?
I figured out the MSM was in the tank for libs back in 1976 when I came home from the military and started watching 60 Minutes Hit Jobs on conservatives and non-libs. Never paid them any real credence since then.
People know kabuki theater when they see it...
I posted a thread for this about 3 days ago. “Obama, Smoke & Mirrors”
You’re giving Kabuki Theater a bad rap there.
I read it. So I wasn’t surprised when my girlfriend sent me her friends letter. I had though it was one of those internet letters that go around. I was surprised to find out that she really knows the lady who wrote it. Her friend used to be a big Obama supporter, and now... not so much.
Nice Staged Photop, but America knows.
Pray for America and Our Troops
Yeah, things like Twitter, texting, and all of the other real-time methods of communication are giving the dinosaur MSM a run for their money. The alphabet-soup stations are becoming like newspapers—yesterday’s spun news that no one cares about.
My mother is 85 years old and she scans the web everyday looking for the truth and then comparing it to what little pablum the MSM spits out.
Later, the writer becomes "physically nauseous," and having been "over the Moon" for Big Boy Barry in 2008 does make this an interesting sketch of a presidential event, though aside from the scope and frequency, and the cadres of agents provocateurs not differing from several presidential events I participated in, on the ground, ahead of and during similar events set up by the former administration.
That being said, the size and scope and presence of said provocateurs all display a level of decadence never before dreamed of by an American president.
Those tickets that "disappeared" went to leaders of those cadres, most especially to big donors and Democrat politicians, and their cronies, as rewards to to be handed out to the Faithful, not just with their vote but with their wallets; True Believers. The Republicans did the same thing, though they have so few ancillary organs, relative to the Democrats, that more real Human Beings made it into the Hall in those far less frequent events staged by the last White House.
What we have here is an eye-witness account that gives us small peeks at the decadence of Washington on the Road, and it was very unsettling to this former Obama supporter, obviously. At least she's conscious, now.
The sooner people generally come out of their trance-like "State" and see this "two-bit carnival hypnotist" for what he is, the better.
While generally similar, for similar reasons, including security, to similar affairs orchestrated by the White House under both Republicans and Democrats, the differences in style seem similar also to those between Republic and Empire.
This cat is on his way to becoming a new level of low, a byword to his country that might, just might, scare the hell out of enough Americans to hold off the full range of tyranny for another generation.
You have to hope, though Caligula was done in by his own massive Praetorian Guard, who were not about to put themselves out of work.
I hate Liberals/progressive/socialists with every fiber of my being
Great report, Danae.
I’ve seen this posted a few times now. Would like to see a video or interview from someone in montana. That’d be awesome.
Obama is nothing but stage props and propaganda. He is the Teleprompter of the United States, TOTUS!
I have never seen such a spooky crowd of Democrat Socialist Party members. They sat there with their eyes all glassey like the just had a hit of something.
