CARSON CITY PROTEST EVENT AGAINST HARRY REID ADDED

Pro-Troop Organization to Hold “Surrender is Not an Option” Protests Against Harry Reid in Carson City & Las Vegas

In response to the efforts by Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, to undercut support for the missions of our troops in Iraq, pro-troop supporters will be conducting protests outside the district offices of Harry Reid & Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, May 17, 2007 at 10:30 AM Pacific Time.

A protest against Senator Harry Reid will take place outside of Reid’s district offices in Carson City & Las Vegas. The Carson City protest has been added in response to the wishes of local grassroots activists who are furious with Reid’s efforts to cut funding for our troops serving in Iraq and his recent declaration that, “the war is lost.”

Local grassroots activist, Eric Odom, will be heading up the newly added Carson City event.

The protests are being organized by Move America Forward (website: www.MoveAmericaForward.org), the nation’s largest grass-roots, pro-troop organization and will be called “Surrender is Not an Option.” The protests will include picketers carrying white “surrender flags” to mock the defeatist approach offered by Reid & Pelosi.

“The anti-war movement and their leaders in Congress have gotten too far ahead of themselves and they are now going to experience the backlash from the American people. If these anti-war advocates won’t stand behind our troops then maybe they should stand in front of them on the frontlines in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Melanie Morgan, Chairman of Move America Forward.

On Thursday May 17th at 10:30 AM, Move America Forward will be holding “Surrender Is Not an Option” rallies at the offices of speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid. The Grassroots organization is asking that its members bring white “surrender flags” to show their displeasure with Reid and Pelosi.

The protests against Harry Reid will take place outside of his offices at these locations:

LAS VEGAS
333 Las Vegas Boulevard South,
Suite 8016,
Las Vegas, NV 89101

CARSON CITY
600 East William St, #302,
Carson City, NV 89701

“We’re not going to sit back any longer and allow politicians and anti-war groups to undercut our troops, we’re starting to fight back,” said Melanie Morgan.

The provocative campaign is funded by small donor contributions from tens of thousands of Move America Forward members around the country. For more information please visit www.MoveAmericaForward.Org

Can we say HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH????!!!!???
Double and Triple that HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH for ME as well!

Iraq officials to push for U.S. support

I’ve saved the BEST news for last, though (at least, last at this time). It must really, REALLY piss of pelosi, reid, murtha, clinton, durbin, et. al., that Baghdad is asking us to stay.

Iraq officials to push for U.S. support

WASHINGTON – Worried Congress’ support for
Iraq is deteriorating rapidly, Baghdad dispatched senior officials to Capitol Hill this week to warn members one-on-one that pulling out U.S. troops would have disastrous consequences.

The lobbying push targeted Republicans and Democrats alike, but focused primarily on those considered influential on the war debate. On Thursday, hours before the House voted to limit funds for the war, Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Barham Saleh met with more than 30 House Republicans and more than a half-dozen senators, including Sens. Harry Reid, D-Nev., John Warner, R-Va., and Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.

“He understands that American patience is waning,” said Sen. Norm Coleman, after eating lunch with Saleh, Iraqi Ambassador Samir Shakir al-Sumaidaie and Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

But the lobbying by the Iraqis isn’t the only pressure-point being applied in Washington.

Clinton said Friday she considered it “promising” that several Republican House members went to the White House and told President Bush they believe the continuing war is adversely affecting the party.

She said the GOP lawmakers told Bush pointblank that “he has to change course in Iraq.” But she also said she didn’t think that Bush was ready to reverse course.

“I think we’re going to go back and forth on this for a while longer,” Clinton said in an interview Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program with Joe Scarborough.

“It is clear that whatever the mission used to be, it is either accomplished or over,” she said. “If there are remaining American interests, then let’s spell them out.”

Baghdad’s ability to sell members like Coleman, R-Minn., and Chambliss, R-Ga., on the war effort is critical if the Iraqi government wants U.S. troops to stay. Coleman in recent months has become deeply skeptical of the president’s decision to send additional troops to Iraq and says patience on the war in general is limited.

Coleman, Chambliss and Sen. John Sununu (news, bio, voting record), R-N.H., who met separately with Saleh, will be up for re-election next year — facing voters who have grown tired of a war in its fifth year and that has killed more than 3,380 troops. While Republicans have been reluctant to intervene, many say President Bush has until September to tell if the troop buildup in Iraq is working before they demand another approach.

With the clock ticking, Saleh — a Kurdish politician highly regarded by U.S. officials and who speaks impeccable English — said he came to Capitol Hill to convey the “imperative of success” in Iraq.

“Iraq is a central battleground in this historic conflict” against terrorism, he said in a brief interview after meeting with Reid, the Senate majority leader.

His trip came on the heels of a visit by Mowaffak al-Rubaie, the national security adviser to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, along with three other senior advisers, according to the Iraqi embassy. The New York Times first reported al-Rubaie’s visit on Tuesday.
The timing of these meetings is no mistake. This month, Congress is expected to send Bush legislation that funds the war in Iraq but requires the Baghdad government meet certain political and security reforms. In question is what consequences the Iraqis should face if they fail. Democrats want U.S. troops to leave, Republicans say they don’t want to force redeployments, but some say they would be open to withholding more than $5 billion in foreign aid.

The House voted 221-205 Thursday for a stronger measure that would fund the war only through July, giving Congress the option of cutting off money after that. The bill is unlikely to survive in the Senate, although it indicates the war’s unpopularity among members and their frustration with the lack of progress in the Iraqi parliament.

The most recent irritant among U.S. lawmakers was a report that Iraqi officials would break for two months this summer.

“Our armed forces are up to 150,000 troops; we’re over $600 billion appropriated for this, lost 3,300 lives, 25,000 wounded fellow citizens. … And the Iraqi answer? We’re taking a summer off. Goin’ fishing,” said Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill.

Saleh said he expects the vacation to be shortened by at least a month, although nothing had been decided. He added that Iraqis value being independent and do “not take kindly of (U.S. officials) telling us when to recess.”

Democrats seemed to consider these meetings with Iraqi officials as beneficial — if only to convey their frustration to Iraqi officials in person.

Reid’s spokesman Jim Manley said the senator told Saleh that “U.S. patience, blood and treasure were not unlimited and that the Congress would be taking a more decisive role in the coming weeks and months.”

“Salih understood the point, and said he would deliver the message to the Iraqi cabinet,” Manley added.

Nevada Editorial Calls Harry Reid BOZO THE CLOWN!

This article came from Wake Up America and I’m cross-posting it here. Seems even Harry’s home state is fed up with him. Maybe Nevada will grow a spine this next election and throw this crook out!
Here’s the article.

Hat Tip to Don Surber for finding this.

Pretty bad when an editorial in your OWN states newspaper is calling you Bozo the Clown, but due to Harry Reid’s idiotic words, that is what has happened.

Enter Sen. Reid, flopping around in big red shoes like Bozo the Clown.

A few weeks ago, Sen. Reid said on a major weekend talk show that he favored a firm deadline for withdrawal of all forces from Iraq. When members of his own caucus said, “What? First we’ve heard,” the senator went into damage control mode — the kind that starts out with staffers explaining, “What the senator meant to say was …”

But last week he was back at it. As the Democratic House voted 215-199 Thursday to uphold legislation ordering troops out of Iraq next year, Sen. Reid appeared in public to declare the war in Iraq is “lost.”

“I can’t begin to imagine how our troops in the field, who are risking their lives every day, are going to react when they get back to base and hear that the Democrat leader of the United States Senate has declared the war is lost,” responded Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Now, purists may object this is not “a declared war,” but that hasn’t stopped the Congress from funding it. And in time of war, it’s at least incredibly stupid to tell the enemy a fixed date by which the ammo and other supplies of the American troops will be cut off, encouraging the enemy to merely lay low and hold on.
Not all Democrats seem to have such trouble keeping their feet out of their mouths. In a much more defensible yet still realistic statement, Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., chairman of the Appropriations Committee, differed with Sen. Reid last week, responding, “Our troops won the war clearly, cleanly and quickly. But now they are stuck in a civil war.” The only solution to that is a political and diplomatic compromise, Rep. Obey added, “and there is no soldier who can get
that done.”
Is that what Harry Reid meant to say?

Friday morning, the majority leader returned to the Senate floor, supposedly to reiterate his Thursday comments. Yet this time Sen. Reid carefully avoided using the word “lost.” Less than 24 hours after declaring Iraq a lost cause, Sen. Reid insisted, “No one wants us to succeed in Iraq more than the Democrats.”

Um … what?
What he actually meant to say is that Iraq is lost if we continue to follow President Bush’s strategy, the Democratic leader explained — while once more carefully resisting the temptation to put forward any better strategy.

Sen. Reid then attempted the old cushion shot — “deny everything and make counter-accusations” — as he sought to shift the blame to those who had criticized him the day before.”

The partisans who launched attacks on my comments are the same ones who continue to support a failed strategy that hurts our troops,” Sen. Reid said.Ah. But it doesn’t “hurt our troops” to tell them — and the enemy — that our Marines and G.I.s are risking their lives in a lost cause before they even suit up and start their engines for this morning’s patrol?

OUCH.

He deserves it, the man is so busy trying to score political points he never once stopped to consider the damage his words were causing to OUR TROOPS.

Related posts with letters from our ACTIVE MILITARY, telling us exactly how Harry Boys words have hurt them and in one instance says, “Your words are killing us” can be found:

For the record, let me repeat, sending your indignation and letters as well as emails to Harry Reid will do no good, the man cares about his politics and couldn’t give a damn about our soldiers.

Please spend your time sending the GOP leadership your letters and complaints and make sure to demand, as respectfully as possible, that they be read INTO the record on the house and senate floor.

The ONLY way to get Reid to listen is to hurt him politically, so, lets stand up for our toops here at home .
