Film maker John Ziegler illegally handcuffed for asking questions.

"All I'm trying to do is ask questions!"

John Ziegler: John went to USC to witness and ask questions about Katie Couric getting the Walter Cronkite journalism award for her interview of Sarah Palin. He intended to also give away copies of his film but was literally prevented from doing so. He did not go there hoping for or expecting any sort of confrontation, especially with law enforcement. He was simply shocked and horrified by what happened there, as should every freedom loving American. He did absolutely nothing wrong and was handcuffed, detained and literally abused by law enforcement at the event.

The video speaks for itself, John will have plenty to say about this very disturbing episode. This video was shot and edited by Orange County Films. John Ziegler was not involved the the production or editing of this video in any way.

According to Reuters, opposition Republicans and SOME people in a FEW cities, attended tea parties yesterday in the USA!!!

It's funny to me now, but when I think of Reuters, I remember the impression I had, until this morning, that Reuters was an international news agency of some repute and in which I could have confidence. Not now! I was going to bed last night just as tea parties were getting underway all over the US, from sea to shining sea. Thanks to the internet, I could see for myself those crowds building up.

This morning, this is what Reuters had to say!

"Opposition Republicans seized the chance to rail against what they see as wasteful spending by his new Democratic administration, and some of Obama's grass-roots critics staged "tea party" protests in several U.S. cities."

Well, there were a lot more than "some" at those tea parties. And it wasn't just Republicans as far as I can gather from personal reports all over the internet. And it wasn't just "several" cities! If you look at the map I published in a previous post, you can see the locations and numbers of organised parties.
