Sarah Palin made the following statement on her facebook page urging President Obama not to travel to Copenhagen for the Glodal Warming Summit:

——

Mr. President: Boycott Copenhagen; Investigate Your Climate Change “Experts”

The president’s decision to attend the international climate conference in Copenhagen needs to be reconsidered in light of the unfolding Climategate scandal. The leaked e-mails involved in Climategate expose the unscientific behavior of leading climate scientists who deliberately destroyed records to block information requests, manipulated data to “hide the decline” in global temperatures, and conspired to silence the critics of man-made global warming. I support Senator James Inhofe’s call for a full investigation into this scandal. Because it involves many of the same personalities and entities behind the Copenhagen conference, Climategate calls into question many of the proposals being pushed there, including anything that would lead to a cap and tax plan.

Policy should be based on sound science, not snake oil. I took a stand against such snake oil science when I sued the federal government over its decision to list the polar bear as an endangered species despite the fact that the polar bear population has increased. I’ve never denied the reality of climate change; in fact, I was the first governor to create a subcabinet position to deal specifically with the issue. I saw the impact of changing weather patterns firsthand while serving as governor of our only Arctic state. But while we recognize the effects of changing water levels, erosion patterns, and glacial ice melt, we cannot primarily blame man’s activities for the earth’s cyclical weather changes. The drastic economic measures being pushed by dogmatic environmentalists won’t change the weather, but will dramatically change our economy for the worse.

Policy decisions require real science and real solutions, not junk science and doomsday scare tactics pushed by an environmental priesthood that capitalizes on the public’s worry and makes them feel that owning an SUV is a “sin” against the planet. In his inaugural address, President Obama declared his intention to “restore science to its rightful place.” Boycotting Copenhagen while this scandal is thoroughly investigated would send a strong message that the United States government will not be a party to fraudulent scientific practices. Saying no to Copenhagen and cap and tax are first steps in “restoring science to its rightful place.”

The Tea Party took to the roads of Long Island today!

Updated with Video – 10/15/09

Patriots departed from Rockville Centre, Lindenhurst and Setauket to converge on Islip Grange Park!

The crowd at Lindenhurst posed for a group photo in front of the Babylon Town Hall before rolling out.

Many along the routes waved, cheered and gave thumbs up as the caravan rolled through their towns!

Outstanding!  Awesome!  Beyond My Wildest Expectations!

March On Washington 9-12-09

Only three things marred the day.

  1. One of our ladies was arrested Friday night (no she was not filming yet another ACORN expose) and we spent all of Saturday in court trying to get her released.  It was 7pm before that happened and the march was over.  Luckily the court was only two blocks from Pennsylvania Avenue so we were able to take walks down during the delays to take pictures and video.  This incident will be the subject of a future posting.
  2. Someone in DC government issued a permit for a marathon to be run in streets adjoining Freedom Square.  I guess they never thought that the number of Americans who could possibly object to our government’s ‘March To Socialism’ would ever exceed the square’s capacity!  Epic Fail!  When irate marathon organizers tried to get folks arrested for crossing the street they stepped beyond the limits of decorum.  Blame Government, Not Conservatives!
  3. The mainstream media followed the lead of the Associated Press and reported thousands and thirty thousand as the number of marchers.  The above photo is from AP itself and puts the lie to their own crowd estimate.  I understand the DC Metropolitan Police estimated the size at 2.2 million.  They reportedly shut the Metro and closed interstate exits into the city due to the congestion.  Associated Press Lies!

I got a call from my brother who reached Freedom Plaza about 9am.  The Plaza was full to overflowing and people were backing up on all the side streets around.  I began to see that as we passed on our way to court.  The Plaza, Pennsylvania Ave and E Street were jammed full of people.

The crowd was alread spilling into 14th Street and the situation on 13th was much worse!

Some boob in whatever department issues permits in Washington had issued a permit for a marathon on E Street and 13th Street for the exact same time as the Tea Party rally and march!

The marathon organizers were livid that mere common American citizens were spilling over into their sacrosanct venue.  They were busy trying to get police to arrest anyone that stepped foot into the street!  Unfortunately that was the only way many people coming to the rally could go!  If the Metropolitan Police had tried to enforce even a little of what the marathon organizers wanted they would have had to arrest thousands and the epic riot that would have ensued would have been one for the history books!

My brother called me about 9:30 to say that the police were no longer able to handle the size of the crowd and that the march was beginning an hour and a half early to help clear the square!

Jim sent this photo from the Marriot Hotel looking down on Freedom Plaza about this time:

They came by state, town, large groups and small.  Individuals, couples and families.  Americans, Russian immigrants, Cuban exiles it made no difference.  They all had one overarching theme:

We happened to be standing in front of this building, the Newseum, whose inscription of the first amendment fired up the crowd as they marched past:

Here is a taste of what the march was like!

The March lasted for over two and a half hours from curb to curb along Pennsylvania Avenue!

The Silent Majority has outstanding pictures here, here and here!  Their great videos are here!

Here’s One, the CNN bus fiasco!  Hiding the crowd by filming from the other side of the bus!

The Band of Mothers has a report with pictures here.

And now, for some comic relief!

Here is the Organizing for America response on 9/13 when they ‘organized’ their March on Washington!

I’ll give them a break and guess that they may have had 200 moonbats present.  They speed up the video of the group walking around the cricular fountain in a futile attempt to make it seem more impressive!  The same people appear three or four times!  Epic Fail!

Excellent video by LIKillerTaxes.com

Enjoy!

If our representatives and media cannot talk about Town Hall meeting encounters without spreading vicious lies about their constituents, then how can they expect Americans to trust anything they say about Healthcare, Cap and Trade, Stimulus spending or any other subject?

Vilification of Ordinary American Citizens like Katy Abram:

There is no doubt now that the Tea Party movement has risen from the grassroots and has spread and energized patriotic Americans on a scale not seen since September 11th.  The mainstream media refuses to publicize the overwhelming numbers and size of these events so we need to spread the word ourselves.  How better than a carnival of Tea Parties?

Here are a few recent videos of Tea Parties from near and far.
