Join Immigration Enforcement Groups for Historic Rally in Raleigh on June 18 Live Coverage

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 18, 2008

A diverse group of concerned citizens who represent the 80% of North Carolinians, which want the NC Legislature to take action to curtail illegal immigration in 2008, will gather for a rally and citizens lobby day in Raleigh on June 18, 2008

The rally will be from 11am-1pm on the Bicentennial Mall, which is across Jones St. from the main entrance of the NC Legislature. Supporters are also encouraged to join us, on the 1st floor inside the legislative building from 8am-5pm, to distribute materials and lobby NC lawmakers against HB 2717 that would allow illegal aliens in NC Colleges, while supporting measures to protect American jobs, tax resources, and lives threatened by illegal immigration.

These events will be at the NC Legislature at 16 West Jones St., Raleigh, NC

Fred Smith Rally in Beaufort

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 2, 2008

Fred Smith held a rally in Beaufort, and a member of the New Media was there to capture the action:

COUNTY NC NEWS — Yesterday on a dreary Monday evening, more than eighty citizens gathered at the Washington High School in the City of Washington, located in Beaufort County, North Carolina, to attend Senator Fred Smith’s campaign rally in support of his candidacy for Governor 2008. Lee Greenwood, a close friend and supporter of Smith, preformed flawlessly ending the evening event by singing, “God Bless America” with the entire audience. Greenwood is also the official spokesperson for Operation Never Forgotten (ONF), and travels extensively in Iraq and Kuwait entertaining and supporting our Troops deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Road Trip to a Debate and a Rally

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 26, 2008

**update** 6.15pm I made it back home after several wrong turns. I am downloading the streamed coverage so I can edit that material into my own coverage, and I’ll start cranking them out in the morning, with a long version for google, and shorter versions for youtube and other video sharing sites. I will also prepare a few snippets from a Bill Graham Interview for the URTV program “Sound Off Buncombe” hosted by Richard Bernier, and a few snippets from the Fred Smith Rally at the Asheville Ballroom.

I’ll be covering the NC GOP debate in Hendersonville at 8 am this morning at WNC Citizens Blog, then I’ll be covering the Fred Smith Rally at the Asheville Ballroom around noon.

I hope to broadcast the first event live, and I’ll be recording the second event. Then, I’ll return home and hopefully have everything processed by 6 am tomorrow, if not before.

WNC Citizens Blog.
Or here:
I apologize for the frequent dropouts and hope I am still broadcasting. My screen here shows that I still am.

Let’s hope I don’t get pulled over for speeding…

Eagles v Traitors in DC

Posted by Thunder Pig on September 15, 2007

This is the weekend culmination of the Surge in September, with Gathering of Eagles III: Operation Eagle Justice.

The Eagles are back in DC to protect our National Monuments from vandalizing traitors, and Michelle Malkin has been liveblogging the event.

Update 5:00pm Eastern. Well, they came, they spewed, they cursed. Several thousand Soros marchers descended on the Capitol yelling “Fuck Bush” and “Fuck you” at Gold Star Families. As Capitol Hill police arrested the “die-in” participants, young peaceniks shouted “What does a pig look like? The Capitol police” and “Oink! Oink! Oink.” Others shrieked about “Fascism!” and gleefully performed “Sieg Heil” salutes. We’ll have video from the midst of the moonbats. Across from Taft Park, some anti-American demonstrators waving a large, upside-down American flag and pulling a coffin with Army boots got in a scuffle with Eagles. We’ll have that video of that as well.

Read the whole thing.

CBS Coverage

And, always on top of the Counter-Protests, Free Republic has a thread.

And, one thing to remember is that safety is of paramount concern when dealing with moonbats:

This was released before the March Gathering of Eagles, and it bears repeating!

Asheville Rally Report part 1

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 25, 2007

This is part one of a series, including video and numerous photos of the event and people attending.

***Slide Show added to bottom of post. –TP 805am.

[Videos will be added later this morning when I get access to a fast internet connection. –TP]

Mobile Rally Banner

I attended the Rally to Stop Illegal Immigration held at Ferguson Auditorium from 2 to 5pm Saturday afternoon on the campus of AB-Tech by The Action Club of the Buncombe County Republican Party.

Bill Fishburne was the Master of Ceremonies and provider of factoids between speakers. He opened the meeting in Spanish.

The Reverend Dr. J. Wendell Runion, of WKJV Radio, led the Invocation, Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner.

Dr. Kathie Lack, President of The Action Club, welcomed everyone for their attendance on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. (There were at least 100 in attendance).

Video 01 –Opening Ceremonies

Kathy Rhodarmer, Vice-President of The Action Club, showed the famous gumball video ‘Immigration By The Numbers,” by Roy Beck, of NumbersUSA.

Andrew Dunn, of The Eagle Forum and Action Club, spoke to Illegal Immigration, including a quote of President Teddy Roosevelt on the importance of assimilation of new immigrants. He also addressed the importance of calling your local elected officials and voicing opposition to Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.

I will end part one with a link to local coverage, which will become more important when you see the video of William Gheen of ALIPAC.

AC-T Coverage

The Asheville Daily Planet had reporters in attendance, but their report is not online yet, and WLOS had a camera there, but I do not know if they aired any footage. If they sent a reporter, he/she/it kept a very low profile, and they left early in the event, before the keynote speakers spoke.

As per William Gheen of ALIPAC’s request, please call Senator Richard Burr’s DC Office [202-224-3154] and ask that he meet with William Gheen, and remind him that you are watching for his vote to oppose the Motion for Cloture, and to vote No on the Comprehensive Immigration Bill. 2010 is not that far away, and his vote will give us an indication to start looking for a replacement.
