Presidential Staging

Got an interesting e-mail I want to share.  It gives a little insight to how campaigns are set up and how views are slanted.  Both sides of the aisle use similar tactics but this is one of the more unusual tactics I have heard of.  How much truth there is I have no idea nor how much distortion there is.  It does give one an idea of the fear and anger that is in the US.  It is an anger I haven’t read about since the 20’s.  The point is there are some very angry people out there and they are getting angrier.
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 . Scary!!

  1. John, I share your fears and frustration. Remember, what was the only job/profession our dear leader had before going into politics, community organizer. He and his Chicago Machine cronies and fellow administration lackies are all pulling the strings. I have posted a letter from one of the tenticles trying to oppose the real fear and anger that is going on in our nation.The lobster goes to the arrogance and intellectual elite mentality of those in power now. Why help the local economy, they are just bitter clingers (remember that from PA?). I understand the logistics of keeping the president safe and with open carry guys around I feel for the Secrete Service and their headaches, however you are 100% correct. He is the President of the nation, not just the left. He did not get a mandate to radically change the nation, just change the administration and the way business was done in Washington. Seems the Hope and Change message was missinterperuted by the independants and moderates.I have seen town halls be cancelled, held via teleconference or so pre-planned and showcased in local media it was sickening. It is all staged for mass manipulation of the citizens. Why? The only reason for that is because they are afraid and want to generate faux support. Reminds me of Wag the Dog. The real anger and outrage out there is the spending, regulating, and over reaching into our lives without any thought of asking if we even want it. They are not reading the bills, acting arrogant, and trating the public and any dissent as if done by ignorant ungreatful idiots who don’t know a good thing when it is in front of them. They are trying to re-invent the wheel instead of looking at why it is broken (tort reform, HMO over rationing, Medicare/Medicade, SSI fraud and inefficiency, etc.) There are problems, real problems, but the fixes we are being told to accept and accept without any questions are being found to fix nothing and cost us more then we ever repay! I hear bars of Dixie in the back ground and think I will need to research Mr. Jefferson Davis a bit to see what can be done to stop this pig dead in its tracks.

  2. Dear John, I write from Canada so do not want to sound like speaking out of turn. Thank-you for sharing all this news in such detail so there is a record. I would never have imagined such extensive manipulation of an event and am shocked at the extent on rereading. The choreography in the media savvy age is frightening and smacks so of Orwellian 1984. I am not saying similar does not happen in Canada. I saw it during a G7 event in YVR. The mention of lobster is laughably absurd and so unspeakably ridiculous. I won’t go on…you wrote a concise enough summary of eye-witness facts. How fortunate there are people who still observe and record alternative record of events and I hope this piece can find publication. I do send prayers for government leaders and people to understand loss of freedoms and the freedom to even know what happens. Great post!
