OBAMA IS ASTROTURF! Lobster in Montana? WHat for? Read Below how Obama Organizers Left wing Town Halls. Read Below! Your thoughts?

As I recall, the control of the press is not supposed to occur in democratic nations.

This was originally sent by someone in Bozeman, MT who was there.
Why do we tolerate this?

Hello All,
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 Bill 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 Bill found out that they would be holding the "Town Hall" at the airport. (This is only because Bill 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 Bill 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.

Bill 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.

    i think we need to take the entire DNC, All of ACORN Obama his wife and kids out and put them all in a work camp at a dollar a day, and have them repay all the stimulus money they borrowed from China. they should be able to pay it back in say ten thousand years. lol.
    Hell i`d even sell Nancy the nazi Pelosi to the tali ban for five bucks.
    To hell with that, i`ll give them ten bucks to take Nancy the Nazi pelosi off of our hands.
  • qwertyuiop lazarou... 2009/08/23 12:59:36
    Will you ask yourself a couple of questions please Exactly what has the RNC done when in control since 1994-2006. Have they stopped abortion as promised! Has your life actually been better since we have been @ war in Iraq. Why didn't the previous administration do what they said GET OSAMA BIN LADEN why have they ever finished anything they started except give the weathest 25% of population more money. Export most jobs overseas and who is going to by all that great cheap stuff without a decent paying job. the Recession started in 2007. The Previous administration started the first handouts to whom the wealthiest people "the I got mine now you get yours club". Are you upset they didn't think of you too if your in the bottom 75%
  • lazarou... qwertyuiop 2009/08/25 07:29:56
    WOW! You seem to be upset that you were overlooked.
    You see i own my own business, so i was doing OK until Obama.
    Since he has been in office, my business has taken a dive. (No joke)
    I am not saying that bush was a wise man, and he lost my support half way through his first term.
    Then again with the patriot act, (more like unpatriotic act) if you ask me.
    However Obama takes the cake.
    This health care bill is just plain bullshit and anyone who cant see this is just stupid or blind or absolutely insane.
    Why would a health care bill give the government access to yours and my bank accounts unless they were planning to seize our accounts at some point?
    Why should legal Americans be forced into paying for the health care of millions of illegals? And thats only two of the completely unconstitutional things in the bullshit bill. This doesn't even bring in cap and tax.

    The best thing we can do is shut down the obama media.
    Contact sponsors and let them know we don't like yellow journalism.
    Their numbers are going down and we need to keep that moving.
    bama must be made to tell the truth.
  • lazarou... rightside 2009/08/21 21:40:56
    Like he can actually tell the truth? right!
    This corksucker lies through his teeth on a daily basis, i doubt he knows what truth is any more.
  • rightside lazarou... 2009/08/21 21:43:25
    OK OK, you're right, he is incapable of telling the truth.
    And, he's told so many lies, he probably believes them.
  • Stratweenie57 2009/08/21 14:04:01
    In the days of the Soviet Union,when western visitors were to come and SEE the "Great Experiment",a tour route was arranged and all the beggars on the street were removed,the villages were mocked-up fakes and all the people were under instruction to answer any questions a certain way and were told to behave as if quite happy with Communism.These became known as "Potemkin Villages".All fake, all the time....staged as it were.
    Sound familiar?
  • Lanikai 2009/08/21 13:58:48
    God, the bad news keeps on coming. I guess we elected an entitled dictator. i would LOVE to see the expense reports for how much we spend to feed him and his 500 party entourage everywhere they go as well as how much it costs US the taxpayers to bus in all of his worshippers.
