The promised reports from inside the Democratic fundraiser at NBA superstar Alonzo Mourning’s bayfront estate won’t be possible, apparently. Former Democratic Congressional candidate, honorably discharged West Point grad and Iraq War veteran Anthony Woods’ $5,00 check was returned by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and he was denied access to the event today. So no one was around to provide President Obama with personal, necessary context, one-to-one, about the GetEQUAL protests he saw today by land, by sea, and by air.

Today’s three-part GetEQUAL demonstration at the bayfront estate of NBA superstar Miami Heat player Alonzo Mourning, who was hosting a high-dollar reception and tented dinner attended by President Obama and many big donors, made the White House press pool report. This means that all press outlets that rely on the pooled reporting from today’s reporters who accompanied the president will have access to a report that includes the GetEQUAL protesters.

Here are some of the photographs of the folks with banners who greeted the the presidential motorcade as President Obama entered the exclusive Coconut Grove gated community where Alonzo Mourning is entertaining high-level Democratic donors today. The motorcade was greeted by chants of “Stop the Discharges” and “What Do We Want? Equality! When do we want it? NOW!”

GetEQUAL has a massive protest demonstration effort ongoing in Miami today, at the home of NBA superstar and Miami Heat player Alonzo Mourning, where President Barack Obama is appearing now at a big-dollar private fundraiser for the Democrats. There are three prongs to the demonstration: by Land, by Air, and by Sea.

Wow, pretty amazing how closely the Democratic National Committee is monitoring and quickly responding to communications to LGBT donors being asked to hold off on their donations this year until LGBT Americans get the things the Obama team promised.

GetEqual has put together a video that answers the question many people ask the LGBT community: “When you say ‘broken promises’ what promises to you mean?” The answer, of course, is all of them.
