Thankful to join hands with VTPP to stop this tide of evil obamacare and other House of Horrors bills and upcoming legislation. As we stand together our voices can be heard loud & clear.

Health Care Rally in Washington, DC

November 5, 2009

Steps of the US Capitol

Footage of crowds and interviews posted on YouTube


Renaissance Women Productions has posted on . . . at Ren Women Productions, 5 segments (under 10 min. each) of the footage gathered at the rally with attribution to Nina May and the Renaissance Women Productions, (, and Va. Living TV.


There were over 30,000 people on the west side of the US Capitol, Thursday, Nov. 5, 2009. The crowd was full of people who had never been involved politically, didn’t even know what congressional district they were in, or who their elected official was. They were not partisan at all, and many didn’t even know if their representative was Democrat or Republican . . . they just knew if they were supporting or opposing the health care bill . . . and would vote in 2010 accordingly.


Segment one . . .  Shows the crowds outside the three House Office Buildings, waiting in long lines to get in. We interviewed dozens of people from all over the country, telling where they are from, why they came and who their elected official is. Surprisingly, there were a lot of people who were there just to show support for their representative who is voting against the bill. Everyone was upbeat and positive, only one person was angry at being dismissed as “Astroturf”.

Segment two . . .

More interviews and comments from people in the crowd. Poignant story of a GE employee from Jacksonville, Fla. who held up a poster showing all the people he works with who chipped in to pay for the gas for him to make the trip on their behalf. This was the face of the crowd . . . people who made great sacrifices to make their voice heard. Everyone had a story, and stressed that they only had a few days to change their schedules to come in from all over the country. Many said they heard about the rally a week before on Sean Hannity’s radio show when Michele Bachman was a guest.


Segment three . . .

Interviews inside the halls of congress with people who either did or didn’t get in to see their representatives and what happened. One man told about the arrest of two teenage girls and a priest outside of Speaker Pelosi’s office. It was closed off to the public and designated a “crime scene.” They mention different offices visited and the responses. Many were very polite and encouraged by the reception they received, or frustrated and determined to keep trying to make their voices heard. It was stressed that it was not about politics or partisanship, one even condemned Senator Lugar, a Republican.


Segment four . . .

The opening of the press conference, rally, shots of the crowd, part of Pledge and Anthem and Michele Bachmann speech.


Segment five . . .

John Voight speech and shots of the crowd.


*Note: Nina May is our friend, owner of Channel 16 (Culpeper) & 17 (Orange) TV stations. She interviewed many of our 76+ who traveled in with us yesterday Nov 5. Our interviews will be aired frequently and footage of our CC TEA Party 912 groups has been aired locally over several weeks with more interviews to come. Several in our group were asked to back up against the wall in the hallway of the Cannon building when arrests took place after a man tore up a sheet of HR3400 Pelosi bill outside her office yesterday as police blocked off further entrance calling it a "crime scene". House Rep. Rob Whitman held a Q & A session prescheduled for us by the Federation of Virginia (VTPP) TEA Party Patriots in a park behind the Longworth Building. Sat. Nov. 7 is call for loud noise at the US Capitol like Gideon. Please be on alert for upcoming local grassroots protest with team of Doctors and panel. Appreciate all who participate to make us One Nation Under God ... with Liberty...! Rita Grace

Fight "Hell Care" - We got a bus!
Thursday Nov 5 - Meet Michele Bachmann
on the Capitol Steps

The Hampton Roads Tea Party will help get you there.

Many, many thanks to Patriot Chris Fockler for making the arrangements for the bus.

Tickets are $38 each/round trip, $75 for 2. Because of the time crunch - you must order your tickets online. PayPal is safe and secure.  Just click on the payment method, and submit your information. You will get a confirmation by email.  You do not need a PayPal account to order your tickets.

he good news is that our efforts locally and nationwide have succeeded in delaying this monstrosity.  Now is the time to stand again.  That nasty Nancy Pelosi is trying to scare everyone with an
"Anthrax threat".  Really?
No, Nancy- we won't be fooled by your lies.  We have a FREEDOM PROMISE!  We will save our children and grandchildren from your Hell Care bill.
Go to the HR Tea Party site:
The information is right on the homepage.
There will be a pick up at Patrick Henry Mall.  If you live on the Penninsula, put "Patrick Henry Mall" in the comment section.

What if you can't go. Visit the local office of your Congressman.  Call their office at the capitol.  Remind your Congressman, that if he/she votes for this you will work to defeat them in next year's election.

Call the Capital switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your Congressman's office.   Need your Local congressman's phone number?  Look 'em up here:
Keep calling- even if you can't get through!  Call the local offices too.
(By now, some of you must have these numbers on speed dial).

you can still download the Constitutional Scorecard from the Tea Party - it's on the home page of our site.

Get out the vote! Many people are disgusted with the current state of affairs.  Some feel that no one running for office fully represents them, that they plan to sit this election out.  Bad move!! This is election is an important one.  Congressional redistricting will be an issue the state legislatures will be working on.  Re - asserting Constitutional State Sovereignty is a major policy initiative.  So Make sure you vote!  Your vote still counts!

From Richmond Tea Party--October 31, 2009

By now you have heard that Pelosi's latest "Health Care Reform" bill is worse than the one released this Summer.

It is nothing short of a total power grab by leftwing socialists and the only response is to fight it with every ounce of our being. 

What you must do:
1)   CALL, EMAIL and FAX YOUR REPS to VOICE YOUR OPPOSITION TO GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE  Contact Info can be found online.  We know we've asked you this over and over, but now is the time when it matters most of all.  Let them know in no uncertain terms that we will not give up as long as our liberties are threatened.  
2)  GO TO DCPlans are underway to protest the bill in DC on Thursday, November 5th.  Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) is leading the effort and is calling all freedom loving citizens to meet her on the Capitol steps at NOON.   

If you plan to drive up, parking info is posted on the home page of the website.  Metro info is posted there also. 
A forum has been opened up for those who wish to carpool.  There is not enough time to get buses together as permits are needed.  Use at your own discretion.

This is IT people.  We cannot look to what we did in the past - April 15th and September 12th don't matter now.  Our efforts delayed the bill but we aren't done. 

What we do TODAY AND THIS WEEK is what counts.

Is your phone line busy yet?  Pick up the phone and call.
