Breakfast With The President On The South Lawn…UPDATED


This is what we should all learn:

A Leader (though some disagree with him at times)

The White House Is Pretty Cool

Marines In The Mix…Brothers


We assaulted The Hill today, 250+ Vets For Freedom in alliance with nearly 600 of Families United. We spoke with our Representatives and our Senators. Most of them were completely on our side and some of them were receptive. The others were flat-out losers.

We had a press conference around 1430 hours. Naturally, the moonbats just felt it a requirement to break the laws…again…and were arrested. I believe 4 or 5 were arrested because we ignored them. However, all 250+ of us diligently observed the Code Wacko Pinko Moonbat Fruit Loops as they unlawfully unfurled their banners, keeping a keen eye for this one.


The Capital Police and the DC Police were on hand, knowing that 250 + veterans and currently active duty would not allow the banner to be raised. The above banner was not presented and that is a good thing for all concerned.

I find it curious that we, professional warriors, do not feel the need to disrupt moonbat rallies. Yet, the Moonbats in the Fruit Loop Brigades, feel it needful to disrupt ours. Why is that? Oh. Wait. Fruit Loops have no respect for anyone or anything but themselves. I forgot.

As we were getting on stage and waiting for many Congress Critters to arrive, the moonbats began to chant something retarded like “healthcare not warfare.” They were drowned out by Kansas:

Carry on my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher
But I flew too high

Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I’m dreaming
I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher
But I flew too high

Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I’m dreaming
I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, well
It surely means that I don’t know

On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I’m like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune
But I hear the voices say

Carry on my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

NO!

Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
The center lights around your vanity
But surely heaven waits for you

Carry on my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry (don’t you cry no more)

They behaved for a while. But, alas, spoiled children NOT getting their way and sorely outnumbered, just had to begin their disruptive bull and cutting a long story short, 4 of 5 of their number were arrested and carted off and we stood tall, confident and professional…not that we didn’t want to severely trounce some more trolls, we did not take the bait…they took ours as they always do.

Not only did we make history on 9/15/2007, we also made history today, 9/18/2007. The opposition has lost their momentum and we could see it in their countenance last Saturday and again today as we met them in the Halls of Congress. We did not see all that many in either House and when we saw them on the street, they could not maintain eye contact with warriors.

The more I review the videos of 9/15/2007 and the more I go by one frame at a time, I notice that the bloated numbers of our opposition is most assuredly NOT what they claim. I am nearly convinced that we had them outnumbered again. Last March we had them outnumbered 3 to 1.

Today, we had them outnumbered nearly 12 to 1. Naturally, the Lame Stream Media plays it another way. We have our own videos and Vets For Freedom will post them as they conclude their activities of this rally in a few days.

We have the momentum and with the CONgress Critters and the usual suspects of ignorance, we have them beat and it will only be a matter of time before the full impact of the MoveOn infamous ad and the “special” Code Pinko Banner takes its full effect; we have them on the run and they’ll not recover.

UDATE! The Texas Vets split up into three groups…our groups visited Sessions, Bernice Johnson, Burgess, Carter, Hutchison, Cornyn, Sam Johnson.

The only ones we have pics with is Burgess and he is very much on board:

Pastor Ed and myself met up with Forest Langley, a thrice decorated Iraq War Hero.



The poetry written by Forest Langley is outstanding and one day, I will be able to read an entire piece. There are too many ghosts and demons in my life at this time and reading Forest’s material brings them rushing in…perhaps that is a good thing…I cannot say at this point.

Wake Up America, Do The Right Thing and Mary Katharine Ham all have excellent and multiple posts covering this day that Pastor Ed and myself attended and stood with our brothers and sisters…fellow True Patriots.

And yes, I do and always will call into question the patriotism of others that support people that say it is OK to murder American Troops.

Murtha Redeploys To The Elevator

Along with today’s activities, the Young America’s Foundation tackled Murtha the Toad and asked him if he was going to apologize to the Haditha Marines.

Watch the video and you decide…

MAJOR HT to Hot Air

Murtha is a liability to the DNC. And so his Pelosi…where is she hiding?

Stop The Webb Amendment

This idiot tried this once before and he fell flat on his face. Now that we have even more momentum, let’s trounce this ignoramus troll once again.

Dear Vets for Freedom member,

Yesterday, 250 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans took to Capitol Hill and delivered a strong message: support General Petraeus and don’t tie his hands with burdensome legislation. It was an extremely successful event and we will send a wrap-up email tomorrow.

However – this afternoon – we need our members to reinforce the great work that our vets did yesterday. Today Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) is introducing an amendment that-on the surface-looks good because the amendment would require a fixed amount of rest time for troops between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

But in actuality, the amendment is a backdoor attempt to legislate an end to the war in Iraq. The Pentagon, General David Petraeus, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and leading military officials all agree that this legislation is nothing more than a “slow bleed” on our current strategy which would actually tie the hands of the Generals on the ground and make it nearly impossible to continue to defeat Al Qaeda in Iraq.

This is just another sneaky tactic to force America into surrender.

We need your help! Please call 1-888-362-2813 today and an operator will connect you with your Senators. Tell them:

  • The Webb Amendment is wrong and hurts America’s military.
  • Now is not a time for politics and posturing in the U.S. Senate.
  • Don’t legislate strategy in the U.S. Senate – leave that up to the Generals on the ground.
In addition to your Senators, take a moment to call the following 6 Senators. They are considered “on the fence” in this debate-and need to hear from veterans who understand how important it is to complete the mission in Iraq.

Senator George Voinovich (R-OH) (202) 224-3353
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) (202) 224-6665
Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) (202) 224-4254
Senator John Sununu (R-NH) (202) 224-2841
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) (202) 224-2523
Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) (202) 224-4944

Today, The Politico reported that one of the leading anti-war activists said this about Senators who support the war in Iraq, “We’re going to smash their heads against their base and flush them down the toilet.”

Friends, the radical anti-war groups have never been more serious and today they are getting help in Congress from Senator Jim Webb.

The question is: who do you trust to fight the war in Iraq: General Petraeus or Congress?

Please join me in calling today…your actions will back up the 250 veterans who took the Hill yesterday!

Move out and Draw Fire!

Pete Hegseth
Iraq War Veteran 2005-2006

MoveOn should do just that. Move on to another country that already has communism as its dogma.

Another Haditha Marine Exonerated-Still No Apology From Murtha


Yet another Haditha Marine, Capt. Lucas M. McConnell, is exonerated.

The dismissal of the charges, officially dated Sept. 12, amounts to a full exoneration for McConnell, who was one of four officers charged with crimes related to the aftermath of the shootings.

“It’s long overdue,” said Kevin McDermott, McConnell’s civilian attorney. “It is clear that everything these guys knew went up the chain of command.”

Another captain — a battalion lawyer — was also cleared. Two officers, including the battalion commander, Lt. Col. Jeffrey R. Chessani, still face charges. Murder charges are outstanding against two Marines who killed people in Haditha, but an investigating officer has recommended that one of the cases be dropped.

July 24, 2007 we showed you a letter to Murtha from Darryl Sharratt, Proud American, Proud father of L/Cpl Justin L. Sharratt, taking John Murtha to task for his public condemnation of the Haditha Marines before they had even been tried.

Murtha’s words:

On Wednesday, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said the accounts are true.

[…]

Murtha, a vocal opponent of the war in Iraq, said at a news conference Wednesday that sources within the military have told him that an internal investigation will show that “there was no firefight, there was no IED (improvised explosive device) that killed these innocent people. Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”

[…]

The Marine Corps issued a statement in response to Murtha’s remarks:

“There is an ongoing investigation; therefore, any comment at this time would be inappropriate and could undermine the investigatory and possible legal process. As soon as the facts are known and decisions on future actions are made, we will make that information available to the public to the fullest extent allowable.”

Murtha held the news conference to mark six months since his initial call for “redeployment” of U.S. forces from Iraq.

He said U.S. forces were under undue pressure in Iraq because of poor planning and allocation of resources by the Bush administration.

Then after L/Cpl Justin L. Sharratt had charges against him dropped, we asked if John Murtha was going to issue a public apology, as publicly as he originally asserted their guilt. We also provided detailed instructions on how to get to Murtha’s office, email him and all the numbers to call to ask him the same question.

Hot Air got the answer when John Murtha’s office hung up on them.

Yesterday Hot Air provided a video of John Murtha being confronted on the issue where he STILL is refusing to issue an apology.

As we showed you above, Lt. Col. Jeffrey R. Chessani is still facing charges and the investigators have already recommended all those charges be dropped.

Lt. Col. Jeffrey R. Chessani has already stated he will initiate a lawsuit against John Murtha for his libelous public accusations against the Haditha Marines and I hope he wins and is awarded every last cent Murtha has to his name.

Brian Rooney, one of the attorneys at Michigan’s Thomas More Law Center representing Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani and a former Marine captain himself told NewsMax.com that his client, who is alleged to have failed to fully investigate the killing of 24 Iraqis in Haditha November, 2005 and not reporting an alleged Law of War violation, may follow the example of another Haditha Marine, SSgt. Frank Wuterich who is suing Murtha for libel.

Murtha set off a media firestorm last year when even before the matter had been fully investigated he charged members of Kilo Company, 3rd Bn, 1st Marine Regiment had gone on a rampage and slaughtered 24 Iraqi civilians in cold blood to avenge the killing of a member of their unit in an IED explosion. He also said that the incident occurred in the absence of any firefight, although it occurred as part of a day-long battle with insurgent ambushers that wounded 11 Marines.

Rooney told NewsMax.Com that his group that, if as they expect, Chessani is cleared just as one officer, Capt. Randy Stone and two enlisted men have either been exonerated of had a hearing officer recommend exoneration they will seek to hold Murtha accountable.

John Murtha deserves to be held accountable and I am glad that he is being confronted on this issue publicly and I would hope that he continues to be confronted every single time he gets in front of a camera.

The man is a disgrace to the uniform he once wore.
