Were I got my information from I will not say, its from a reliable source, I don't care if anyone believes it or not, its here for information purposes only.
By now you have probably heard that PresidentObama came to
Montana last Friday. However, there are many things thatthe major news has not covered. I feel that since Joe and I live hereand 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 youchose to share this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my emailaddress before you forward this on. On Wednesday, August 5th it was announcedlocally that the President would be coming here. There are many groupshere that are against his healthcare and huge spending so those groupsbegan talking and deciding on what they were going to do. The WhiteHouse would not release ANY details other than the date. On about Tuesday Joe found out that they wouldbe holding the "Town Hall" at the airport. (This is only because Joeknows EVERYONE at the airport) Our airport is actually located outsideof Belgrade (tiny town) in a very remote location. Nothing is aroundthere. They chose to use a
hangar that is the most remotely locatedhangar. You could not pick a more remote location, and you can not getto it easily. It is totally secluded from the public. FYI: We have many areas in
Belgrade and Bozemanwhich could have held a large amount of folks with sufficient parking.(gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and wouldnot have to be SHIPPED IN!! $$$$$ During the week, cargo by the TONS was beingshipped in constantly. Airport employees could not believe how it justkept coming. Though it was our President coming several expressed howexcessive it was, especially during a recession. $$$$$ Late Tuesday/early Wednesday the 12th, they saidthat tickets would be handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations andthe president would be arriving around 12:30 Friday. Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passedout. However, 1500 were printed at a Local printing shop per White Houserequest. Hmmmm......900 tickets just DISAPPEARED. This same morning someone called into the radiofrom the local UPS branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobsterwere shipped in for Obama.
Montana has some of the best beef in thenation!!! And it would have been really wonderful to help out the localeconomy. Anyone heard of the Recession?? Just think...with all of thetraveling the White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what elsewe are paying for. On Friday Joe and I got out to the airport about10:45am. The groups that wanted to protest Obama's spending andhealthcare had gotten a permit to protest and that area was roped off.But that was not to be. A large bus carrying SEIU (Service EmployeesInternational Union) members drove up onto the area (illegal)andunloaded right there. It was quite a commotion and there werespecifically 2 SEIU men trying to make trouble and start a fight. Policedid get involved and arrested the one man but they said they did
nothave 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 hadbullhorns and PROFESSIONALLY made signs. Some even wore preprintedT-shirts. Oh, and Planned Parenthood folks were with them.....professingabortion rights with their T-shirts and preprinted signs. (BTW, allthese folks did have a permit to protest in ANOTHER area) Those against healthcare/spending moved awayfrom the SEIU crowd to avoid confrontation. They were orderly andrespectful. Even though SEIU kept coming over and walking through,continuing to be very intimidating and aggressive at the direction ofthe one SEIU
man. So we had
Montana folks from ALL OVER the statewith their homemade signs and their DOGS with homemade signs. We hadcowboys, nurses, doctors you name it. There was even a guy from
Texaswho had been driving through. He found out about the occasion, went tothe 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 FARaway. None of these crowds were even visible to them. I have my doubtsthat they knew anything about the crowds. We did have some local news media around us fromthis state and
Idaho . Speaking of the local media...they were invited.However, all questions were to be turned into the White House in advanceof the event. Wouldn't want anyone to have to think off the top of theirhead. It was very obvious that it was meant to betotally controlled by the White House. Everything was orchestrated downto the last detail to make it appear that
Montana is just crazy forObama and government healthcare. Even those people that talked abouttheir insurance woes........the White House called our local HRDC (HumanResource and Development Committee) and asked for names. Then the WhiteHouse asked those folks to come. Smoke and mirrors...EVERYTHING wasstaged!!!!!!!!!!! I am very dismayed about what I learned aboutour current White House. The amount of control and manipulation wasunbelievable. I felt I was not living in the
United States of America ,more like the
USSR !! I was physically nauseous. Joe and I have beenaround when Presidents or Heads of State visit. It has NEVER been likethis. I am truly very frightened for our country.
America needs yourprayers and your voices. If you care about our country please getinvolved. Know the issues. And let Congress hear your voices again andagain!! If they are willing to put forth so much effort to BULLY a smalltown one can only imagine what is going on in
Washington DC . Scary!!
