Day 9

The Peaceful Occupation of Crawford

The ninth day ended in the most awesome way. We were out at Camp Casey and it was sprinkling a little bit and it really looked like the rain was going to start pouring down anytime. We looked over into the next cow pasture and there was a full rainbow. If that wasn't a sign from the universe than I don't know what is.

I was being interviewed by Alex Jones and he asked me what I thought the rainbow signified. I told Alex that I was positive that it means we are going to be victorious. Rainbows are supposedley God's sign of hope. When Casey was killed on 04/04/04, I thought that all of my hope was killed, too. Being involved in the peaceful occupation of Crawford and meeting hundreds of people from all over the world who are willing to put their money where their mouths are has given me so much hope for the future. We won't let George Bush and his evil neocon cabal ruin our world anymore. John Lennon sang: "Power to the people." We are the people and we have the power.

We had a lovely interfaith prayer service this morning. It was truly beautiful and we were all weeping while we were singing "Amazing Grace." But, during the service, one of our neighbors fired off a shot gun. He said he was shooting at birds, but he is tired of us being there and he wants us to leave. I didn't get to talk to him, but I told the media that if he wanted us to leave so badly, why doesn't he tell his other neighbor, George, to talk to me. We are good neighbors and we are cooperating with everyone. By the way, in case I forgot to blog it last night, the Sheriff has requested that I stay down in Crawford during the night, because he is afraid for my safety aftger he leaves. He said he would "sleep better" himself at night if I came into town to sleep. Judging from the shooting guns, I guess he was right. I would just like to warn anyone who comes to Camp Casey, though, that we are deep in the heart of Bush country. However, we have had absolutely no problems so far.

Speaking of George, I understand that he was riding his bike yesterday out at the ranch. (I hope no London Bobbies got in his way). He took a 2 hour bike ride and when he got back, he was asked how he could go for a two hour bike ride when he doesn't have time to meet with me, and he said: "I have to go on with my life." (Austin Statesman, August 14) WHAT!!!!!????? He has to get on with his life!!! I am so offended by that statement. Every person, war fan, or not, who has had a child killed in this mistake of an occupation should be highly offended by that remark. Who does he think he is? I wish I could EVER be able to get on with my life. Getting on with my life means a life without my dear, sweet boy. Getting on with my life means learning to live with a pain that is so intense that sometimes I feel like throwing up, or screaming until I pass out from sorrow. I wish a little bike ride could help me get on with my life. I can't believe that someone who is the figurehead of an administration that has killed tens of thousands of innocent people doesn't spend his days hiding under his bed in shame, let alone riding his bike.

I need to focus on the positive, though, and there is so much. I had so many amazing things happen today. I couldn't walk through Camp Casey or the Crawford Peace House today without hugging people and getting my picture taken. Now I know how Mickey Mouse feels at Disneyland. I had a soldier from Ft. Hood come out today and he brought me a small stone with a First Cavalry insignia painted on it and the pictures of three of his beautiful buddies who were murdered there by George's reckless policies. It was such an incredible moment for me when he said: "Keep on doing what you are doing. We are so proud of you. Casey would be so proud of you."

My dear friend and fellow peace warrior, Maxine Waters, came to visit us military families and Gold Star Families today at Camp Casey. She brought us some supplies and some encouragement. I asked her how I was supposed to handle the rightwing smear campaign against me and she told me "they can't touch you, be strong." After Maxine left, we came down to the Peace House and we had a luncheon for several Iraqi people who wanted to express their thanks to us for working for peace. It was quite incredible and hundreds of people crowded into the backyard of the Crawford Peace House. I am so humbled by all of the support.

I just wish George had as much courage in his entire body as Casey had in his little pinky, then he would meet with me. Crawford, Tx. is beautiful prairie land, but I could think of dozens of other places I would rather be right now. However, if George or anybody else thinks I am leaving before my mission is "accomplished" they have another think coming. I will stay the course. I will finish the mission. I will take no prisoners.

By the way, we had about 7 counter protesters today and hundreds at Camp Casey...don't let the mainstream media say differently.

HOW MANY MORE WILL DIE FOR BUSH'S WAR?

Bush's coffin train to his ranch just added six more 6 coffins.

Coffins stretch all the way from Camp Casey to his house.

Coffins are right through his front door.

Coffins are piling up in his living room, tumbling down into adjacent rooms.

His home reeks of greed and his floor is slippery with oil and blood.

WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE MUST SHUT DOWN BUSH'S WAR!!!!!!!!

Thank you Cindy, The battle to keep the Iraq war afloat with the American public is lost:

You are in my prayers. By that I mean prayers of thanksgiving as well as requests for God to give you strength. I thank God that a leader like you has emerged. You give us hope.

You are doing a great job. We are proud of you. Regarding the neighbor I can understand why he may feel it's too much for him. It would be very polite to send someone over with a small gift and apologize to him for the problems he's having with access to his property and such. He is not responsible for the war and is just another american,same as us. Maybe he would be charmed by your kindness and join you in your struggle.

It's so nice that Maxine Waters came to visit. I do hope Michael Moore and Huffington fly their jets in and visit as well. Hey , maybe they could bring memebers of your own family? Where are they anyway?

As far as the main stream media is concerned about the numbers of people there, they don't mention it, they just show pictures. There were 250 protesting against you and only about 100 with you.

Nice comment about the jews, maybe they can come camp with you after you kick them out of Israel.

Hey retard wing nut
stick to your own trash right wing blogs
go away.

I am here in Massachusetts. I do a great deal of political blogging in one of our prominate Boston Newspapers.
I will let you know, you have been the top subject all weekend. I have been fighting off all the neocons negativity and giving you my full support with your honorable peace movement.
I will also let you know, you make me proud as woman the way you are standing up for what you believe.It does take a great deal of courage and inner strength. May God give you the courage and strength to forfill your mission. I am with you in spirit!

Blessed be
Ruby

Day 9

The Peaceful Occupation of Crawford

The ninth day ended in the most awesome way. We were out at Camp Casey and it was sprinkling a little bit and it really looked like the rain was going to start pouring down anytime. We looked over into the next cow pasture and there was a full rainbow. [how miraculous!] If that wasn't a sign from the universe than I don't know what is. [This is the rainbow who is going to save the world from total destruction. In banks, the NESARA is called the "RAINBOW PROJECT". New bills printed by the New US Treasury Bank System are in standby waiting in bank's vaults to be put into circulation once NESARA is announced. The "green back" will be phased out. NEW US Treasury Bank System bills have RAINBOW colors!]

I was being interviewed by Alex Jones and he asked me what I thought the rainbow signified. I told Alex that I was positive that it means we are going to be victorious. Rainbows are supposedley God's sign of hope.
[Yes Cindy, the NESARA will pass, let's be patient and continue exposing the lies, this administration is gone. It is just a question of timing now.] When Casey was killed on 04/04/04, I thought that all of my hope was killed, too. Being involved in the peaceful occupation of Crawford and meeting hundreds of people from all over the world who are willing to put their money where their mouths are has given me so much hope for the future. We won't let George Bush and his evil neocon cabal ruin our world anymore. John Lennon sang: "Power to the people." We are the people and we have the power.

To bad Cindy and not Casey went to Iraq. Casey fought for a cause he believed in. His Mom only wants her fifteen minutes of fame. Michael Whore is mentoring her enough said. Thank God for her family pointing out how she is just a hypocrite. By the way I ordered my Downing Street Memo Toilet Paper the other day.

Cindy's voice isn't just hers alone. I for one feel that Cindy has spoken from her heart and that she's spoke for me as well. My wife and I are both Republicans who are reconsidering our change of party affiliation since Bush and Cheney have misreprested our values. Bush and Cheney are more interested in serving the powerful corporate executives than the life and the survival of ordinary Americans. Cindy is simply an American who loves her country and her son. Cindy has more aptitude to be the president of the US than Bush. Keep on going Cindy!

Dear Cindy and Camp Casey Patriots
True patriots who love our country, thats who we are.
The radical right wing nuts are revealing themselves for who they are
They cant stand the truth, they have no honest or truthful statements
so they just smear and attack as rove has taught them
they must sense the change that is coming.
God bless you and keep going. We are with you.
When the people lead, the leaders follow. Citizen G

You have truly become a force to be reckoned with. You are like Martin Luther King, or Mahatma Ghandi. I fear for you and your supporters. I also fear for all Americans and all of humanity right now. Knowing what I know about the darker side of history, I am fearful of what these evil bastards have up their sleeve. I think another terror attack is in the works. This will, among other things, serve to distract away from your movement, and many other groups working in many ways to bring this evil down, including Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald who is supposedly hard at work on indictments of treason by high officials. They are being backed into a corner more and more. Gallant people like yourself and those close to you help to allieve my fear and give me hope. God bless and protect you all!
