Schakowski Stacked the Deck

It took about 24 hours to piece this together, but it appears likely that Rep Jan Schakowski 'stacked the deck' on Monday's town hall meeting by bringing in 5 to 10 bus loads of her supporters and allowing them into the auditorium before the rest of the crowd.

On the day of the meeting, only one entrance to the building was open at Niles West High School in Skokie.  That was the north entrance.  Liberty Watchman arrived about an hour before the scheduled start time and saw five yellow school buses parked at the south entrance.  As he parked his car, he saw the last two people get off the buses and enter the high school through the south entrance.  They did not appear to the Watchman's old eyes to be high school age persons.

While unloading from his car, the Watchman observed the buses depart from the school leaving behind a man to stand guard on the south portal and direct all other attendees to walk all the way around the building to the north entrance.

On Tuesday, blog reader 'Illinois Patriot', who also came to the town hall meeting and couldn't get in, told the Watchman that he talked to people on the scene who said as many as 10 buses arrived at the school that evening.  These observations corroborated the account of another man who the Watchman observed walking briskly out of the meeting before it ended, saying "she stacked the deck by filling the room with her own people."  The man stormed away before the Watchman could follow up on that claim.

Unless someone can come forward with an alternate explanation for why there would be so many buses at the school long after students had gone home, I think it's safe to assume they shuttled Schakowski's lackeys and supporters to the town hall meeting.

Let's do some math.  Each of these buses had a capacity of 36-78 passengers and we know that between 5 and 10 buses arrived at the school.  That would mean that somewhere between 180 and 780 of the 1300 attendees were Schakowski's ringers.  That would also explain why the pro-Obama protesters outside the building outnumbered their opponents by at least 2-to-1.

Reports like this are coming in from all around the nation.  What began as a legitimate grass roots protest against Obamacare and excessive government spending has been hijacked by the well-oiled democrat machine.

The Watchman took the following video outside the Schakowski meeting.  Note that as we have seen in many other locations, the pro-Obama signs are all professionally printed while the Obamacare opponents virtually all had hand written/painted signs.



Now that the town hall meetings have become one big statist coordinated farce, it's on to Washington, DC on September 12th for the National Tea Party protest.  Liberty Watchman will be there, video camera in hand, to bring you his first had perspective.

**** LATE ADDITION ****

I saw this video on Hannity, but didn't realize it was taken at Schakowski's party. Is there any doubt that these town halls are now a deomocrat sham?

    "On the day of the meeting, only one entrance to the building was open at Niles West High School in Skokie."

    Duh, it's a school not a shopping mall. Schools need security at night when they are closed. You want weirdos wandering the halls when there could be kids in there doing some after school activities? A small part of the school was open for a townhall so there was one entrance open. Duh. Hardly a conspiracy.

    "As he parked his car, he saw the last two people get off the buses and enter the high school through the south entrance. They did not appear to the Watchman's old eyes to be high school age persons."

    Now that IS damning evidence. You saw two people, not of high school age (maybe), get off a bus and enter the building from a different entrance so obviously they have been bused in to deny you your constitutional freedoms.

    Are you kidding me? This is the best you can do? Couldn't be a school team coming back from a game or some other school related activity being let in through another entrance by security? Older people at a school! You don't say! Maybe a... get this, teacher.

    "Unless someone can come forward with an alternate explanation for why there would be so many buses at the school long after students had gone home, I think it's safe to assume they shuttled Schakowski's lackeys and supporters to the town hall meeting."

    I just gave you one. High school kids have events at night too. At least I did.

    Did you bother to stay till the townhall was over to see if the buses picked these phantom people up? What kind of "Watchman" are you? That would have been a simple way to get to the truth but instead you just spread rumors because it fits your mind set? Get real.

    You could have even just called the school to see if the buses were there for a school event. But then again, you're a "Watchman" and really know the "truth." No need to actually substantiate your story. Much easier just to repeat rumors.

    Conservatives are so lazy.

  2. Democracy in Action: Did you even attempt to attend the meeting? Did you call the school to check on the buses?

    Better change your name to Democracy in Inaction.

    If conservatives are whiny, it's because liberals are hypocrites.

  3. A) I'm not part of Schakowski's district so I didn't go. B) The fact the I wasn't there doesn't mean I can't think rationally about your statements. C) I haven't called "the school to check on the buses" because I'm not the one making baseless claims. That's your job BEFORE you make accusations.

    Liberty has never been this sloppy.

    "If conservatives are whiny, it's because liberals are hypocrites."

    How are my statements hypocritical? I do apologize to the real conservatives out there because I really should not assume that they are all like you. I should have just said that, "You are whiny." I hope you accept my apology.
