Message For Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Teddy Kennedy, Jack Murtha, and The Rest of The Cut and Run Cowards On The Hill...
The politicians who voted to cut and run from our mission in Iraq are not worthy of the sacrifices our brave troops have made, and continue to make.
God Bless our troops.
God Bless our President.
And I pray, God Save our country from the backstabbing traitor 'Rats on Capitol Hill.

"New Hampshire's 2nd Congressional District representative Paul Hodes was taken to the proverbial woodshed Friday afternoon in his Concord office. A group of a dozen or so Granite Staters-- many of the same so-called "Moms" we've covered here at the 'Grok in prior postings (here, here, and here), the Blue and Gold Star Mothers of NH, military families, proud veterans, the Pease Greeters, and other friends and supporters-- met with Congressman Hodes late on Friday to make known to him their displeasure with his recent vote on the war funding appropriations bill passed by the Democratic-controlled Congress."
Please go read the rest of the story at Granite Grok's blog.
Before I got home from work tonight, Granite Grok had video of the lively meeting posted on You Tube, and a follow-up entry.
I'm posting the video here, but I really want you to go to Granite Grok's blog and read the whole story of these great patriots. I can pretty much guarantee that you will never read about them or see them on PMSNBC/CBS/ABC/etc., because they love this country and they love and give FULL AND UNCONDITIONAL SUPPORT to our troops.
Thank you, Granite Grok, for reporting on the real heart and soul of our great country!

From their YouTube video entry:
The National Council on Organized Resistance is a gathering of liberals, progressives, and anarchists. This year they were joined by a select group of conservatives from across the D.C. area who posed as radicals and went undercover.

The communists sponsoring the "peace" rally at the Vietnam Memorial Wall on March 17th, International ANSWER is worried enough about the Gathering of Eagles that they sent Richard Becker to skulk around the press conference.
After the press conference was over, Becker approached a CBS Radio News reporter and began reciting his party line. The reporter grew tired of listening to Becker's rantings, but not Charles Ryder of Age of Hooper blog and freelance reporter and blogger Jeff Gannon. Watch the video to see the exchange:
In the video, Becker poo-poo'd the claims that his group engages in violent and threatening behavior. Take a look at the slide show below. The photos were taken at an ANSWER sponsored "Muslim Solidarity Day" rally in Freedom Plaza in downtown Washington, DC on 5/24/2003.
At that rally, DC ANSWER leaders Mara VerHeyden-Hilliard and Brian Becker (brother of Richard) saw me quietly taking photos as the speakers droned on about the evil, Imperialist USA, and they quickly sent their thugs over to intimidate, push, shove, obstruct and threaten me with grave bodily harm.
Brian Becker called the crowd to attention and told them I was a cockroach, a spy for the government and suggested that they should do to me what they would do to a cockroach. The US Park Police had to intervene numerous times as the ANSWER thugs assaulted and threatened me.
This is the non-violence that Richard and Brian Becker and International ANSWER espouse:
More on the violence and vandalism typical at the various radical leftist "peace" groups' rallies and marches in DC...
January 27, 2007 - Armed Forces Recruiting Center, Washington, DC - Watch as windows are broken by peace rioters.
At 38 seconds into this video you will hear the window being hit and broken by a rock (brick?) thrown by peace protesters:
In this video of the same incident, you can hear the crack of the projectile breaking the window at 1:16 :
In this video report, you can see the remains of the spray-paint on the steps of the US Capitol. This act of vandalism also occurred at the "peace" protest on January 27th:
Now you see why the veterans will not stand idly by and trust the word of the spokesman for International ANSWER when he says that they don't intend to be violent or vandalize the Wall on March 17th. The veterans and other patriotic Americans will be there to protect and defend the Wall and the honor and memory of those whose names are inscribed on it. Gathering of Eagles participants will also protect and guard the other memorials in the vicinity of the peace riot on March 17th.
Capt. Larry Bailey (USN-Ret.) talks about the Gathering of Eagles:
Will you be there to help us?

Viet Nam Memorial Wall
The anti-war/anti-America groups are planning a “march to the Pentagon” on March 17, 2007…this group has intentions that defenders of freedom cannot overlook or allow to occur…there must be a challenge.
Here’s a portion from the “anti-war” web site March 17 — March on Pentagon!: Time to Turn Up the Heat! that causes considerable concern: “The biggest single group of new volunteers and activists are soldiers and marines who have returned from Iraq. Their family members and other veterans are also organizing to March on the Pentagon. The opening rally will assemble at the Vietnam Memorial (Constitution Gardens) at noon.”
The anti-war/anti-America group cannot be allowed to use the Viet Nam Memorial Wall as a back-drop to their anti-America venom and stain the hallowed ground that virtually cries out with blood at the thought of this proposed desecration….it must not happen...Click on the eagle to go the Veterans' Gathering of Eagles website to learn more.
Word of the veterans and military supporters plan to defend the Vietnam Memorial from the assembly of radicals on March 17th spread, and soon Rolling Thunder was on board. Here's their announcement:
CALL FOR SUPPORT
March 17, 2007 Anti-War Demonstration and
March to the Pentagon to Assemble at the
VIETNAM VETERANS MEMORIAL
ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS
SUPPORTERS, AFFILIATES, FRIENDS OF
ROLLING THUNDER®; ALL MILITARY, VETERANS
MEET AT THE WALL 1000 HOURS / 17 MARCH 2007
IT IS OUR UNDERSTANDING THAT THE PROTESTERS PLAN ON GOING
RIGHT THROUGH THE IMMEDIATE AREA OF THE WALL / THREE MAN STATUE/
AND THE WOMEN'S MEMORIAL. IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT WE
PROTECT OUR PRECIOUS MEMORIALS, THE SANCTITY OF THE
WALL AND DEFEND OUR TROOPS THAT ARE IN IRAQ AND FIGHTING
EACH AND EVERY HOUR FOR OUR COUNTRY.
At the anti-war protest in Washington, D.C. 2 weeks ago there was ALOT
of damage done at the Capitol steps. We cannot and will not allow this to
happen at The Wall or to any of our memorials.
More bloggers posted the plans and signed on for a road trip to DC to stand with the vets protecting and defending the honor of the soldiers memorialized on The Wall. And local radio hosts began talking about the March 17th events on their shows, from Florida to California. More and more groups are telling their members and supporters, and making their own plans to come to DC.
Move America Forward, a non-partisan, not-for-profit charitable organization committed to supporting America’s efforts to defeat terrorism and supporting the brave men and women of our Armed Forces is signed on! They have announced their plan to caravan across the US, holding small rallies along the way as folks join their caravan to DC to stand with the patriots defending The Wall from the radicals (Click on the image below to view their web announcement):
So, what are you waiting for?
Make your plans now to join us!
I will post more info as the plans firm up. As it stands right now, it looks like a few thousand vets, military supporters, military family members and Gold Star parents are coming to DC to stand up and tell the Revolutionary Communist Party, Workers World Party, International Socialist Organization, and other radical leftist organizations' members and supporters that this is OUR Wall, OUR country, OUR freedom that they are fighting against; and we are here to tell them to go to Hell.
Or Cuba. I hear that they are a workers paradise, with free health care and free education.

Ms. Pelosi wants to be able to fly from Washington, DC to San Francisco, CA in comfort and style far beyond her station in life, and the meanies at the DOD aren't bowing down to her demands!
DOD wants to make available to Queen Nancy a C20B (known in the civilian world as a Gulfstream III), shown here:
Before I get into the specifications of the 12 passenger C20B, do you want to see what the interior looks like? How about this one:
OK, here's some information from the US Air Force, about their fleet of C20Bs at Andrews AFB:
Length: C-20B, 83 feet, 2 inches (25.4 meters)
Height: 24 feet, 6 inches (7.5 meters)
Wingspan: 77 feet, 10 inches (23.7 meters)
Speed: 576 mph (501 nautical miles per hour) maximum
Maximum Takeoff Weight: C-20B, 69,700 pounds (31,610 kilograms)
Range: C-20B, 4,250 miles (3,698 nautical miles) long-range
Ceiling: 45,000 feet (13,716 meters)
Load: 12 passengers
Crew: Five (pilot, copilot, flight engineer, communication system operator, flight attendant)
Date Deployed: C-20B, 1988
Inventory: C-20B, Active force, 5 (at AAFB)
Now, this airplane didn't meet Pelosi's high standards. Last night Ms. Pelosi talked about the "size dispute" with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News:
VAN SUSTEREN: There's a story out there about this dispute over an airplane. What — according to the Washington Times, this morning, is that there is a battle between — my word "battle" — between your office and the White House, maybe the Defense Department, about what type of aircraft — I know that Speaker Hastert had Air Force aircraft after 9/11 to transport him for security reasons, since he's second in line succession, now that's your job. What's the dispute? And what's the story?
PELOSI: Well, the — this is about transportation. It's not about a plane. Myself, I wish I didn't have to have so much security, because I like my freedom of mobility, but being, second in line of succession, and since 9/11, Mr. Hastert had that transportation provided. It was thought by the sergeant of arms office, who provides for the security for Congress that, that should be continued. It's their call as to what security is needed for the speaker of the House, and they requested that.
Where the misrepresentations and mischaracterizations came from, I don't know, perhaps the Defense Department, because I've been one of their critics. But I'll say this, I know it didn't come from the president of the United States. Because he has been, if anything, very definite in saying to me, you need to have the security you have. So, this isn't about.
VAN SUSTEREN: It's about the size of the plane. I think that's what the dispute was.
PELOSI: It was the distance.
VAN SUSTEREN: The distance — oh, well, you're from California, we can't do anything about that.
PELOSI: The distance.
VAN SUSTEREN: I mean.
PELOSI: Nor do we want to.
VAN SUSTEREN: Right. And Speaker Hastert was Illinois, the mid-part of the country.
PELOSI: That's right.
VAN SUSTEREN: But I thought that the dispute was somewhat over whether it was the three Air Force planes, one is about the size of a 757, one's a 737, and one's about the size of a Gulf Stream, those are the three that are — seem to be in discussion.
VAN SUSTEREN: Is there any — I mean, is there any problem with the - - are you actually asking for a particular size?
VAN SUSTEREN: Or is it just a plane that can go a particular distance?
PELOSI: Well, no, they told me the first day that I was supposed to go that I couldn't make it across the country. And I said well, that's fine, I'm going commercial. I don't — you know, I'm not asking to go on that plane. If you need to take me there for security purposes, you're going to have to get a plane that goes across the country, because I'm going home to my family.
The — and, and — really, I'm happy to go commercial. But they want me to go on this plane, so the issue was distance, not size. And again, it's not about having a plane. It's about having transportation. These planes are used for other purposes in between — in between trips, which are, you know, take place one or twice a week, going or coming. So, it isn't about that. But there are probably those in the Department of Defense who are not happy with my criticism of Secretary Rumsfeld, the war in Iraq, other waste, fraud and abuse in the Defense Department and I guess this is their way of making their voices heard. But it has nothing to do, as I say, with the president of the United States. He has encouraged my having the security I need.
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, I have sort of a solution, maybe if we put on the Internet, everybody in the government who uses these planes and, you know, when they go, so people on the Internet..
VAN SUSTEREN: Because, look, you know, as a citizen, you know, I sometimes see whether it's a Republican administration or Democrat, I see people showing up at the same event on different planes, instead of carpooling on the plane, occasionally, not often, but if we put on the Internet, let the voters see, and let the voters decide.
PELOSI: Well, I'm happy to be rid of all the security that I have, as I say, I like my independence and my mobility. They have a job to do. It's not just only about protecting me, as the speaker of the House, it's about making sure they know where I am at any given moment, so, in case of a — something happening in our country. The speaker, the leaders in the House and the Senate have to be pulled together immediately, so that's part of it as well. But it's interesting to me that somebody at the Pentagon decided that they would misrepresent, mischaracterize this, but again. I know it's not coming from the president of the United States.
Oh, Nancy I do think that it's all about the size of the aircraft. The range of the 12 passenger Gulfstream III (aka C20B in military) is 3,698 nautical miles, which would get you from Andrews Air Force Base in Suitland, MD to San Francisco, CA (2,610 nm) with more than a few miles to spare.
This is the airplane that the Queen Granny wants, the 45 passenger and 16 crew Boeing 757-200 (aka C32 in military):
Here's some information from the US Air Force on the C32:
The C-32 is a specially configured version of the Boeing 757-200 commercial intercontinental airliner. The C-32 body is identical to that of the Boeing 757-200, but has different interior furnishings and 21st century avionics. The passenger cabin is divided into four sections:
-- The forward area has a communications center, galley, lavatory and 10 business class seats.
-- The second section is a fully enclosed stateroom for the use of the primary passenger. It includes a changing area, private lavatory, separate entertainment system, two first-class swivel seats and a convertible divan that seats three and folds out to a bed.
-- The third section contains the conference and staff facility with eight business class seats.
-- The rear section of the cabin contains general seating with 32 business-class seats, galley, two lavatories and closets.
C32 Specifications, also from the USAF link above:
Primary Function: High-priority personnel transport
Length: 155 feet, 3 inches (47.32 meters)
Height: 44 feet, 6 inches (11.02 meters)
Wingspan: 124 feet, 8 inches (37.99 meters)
Maximum Takeoff Weight: 255,000 pounds (115,668 kilograms)
Range: 5,500 nautical miles unrefueled range
Ceiling: 42,000 feet (12,727 meters)
Speed: 530 miles per hour (Mach 0.8)
Load: 45 passengers
Crew: 16 (varies with mission)
Date Deployed: June 19, 1998
Inventory: Active force, 4
Sorry, but there are no interior images available for this aircraft. If you really want to see what the interior of the C32 looks like, you could probably Google around and find images of Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice traveling to Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and other far-off places in this aircraft. Yes, Nancy Pelosi wants to use the airplane that takes large government entourages around the globe, to get her across the country.
And she talks about ending the waste, fraud and abuse in the US Government?
Hey, Nance... take the plank out of your eye!

A fairly small group of people who support our country, our president and our troops in the global war on terrorists, stood together along the Moonbat march route where we exercised our own First Amendment rights. We offered a critique of the marchers' signs, their heroes and their political beliefs, none of which went over too well with the "peace and diversity" crowd.
The wounded soldiers and the Iraq war vets who joined us along the fenceline were spat at, called killers, dummies, stupid motherfuckers, idiots, tools, racists (though they never once spoke a racial epithet) and murderers.
One particularly charming fellow from the "peace" crew walked along the sidewalk through our small group, rather than walk on the street in the official march route, and he began his verbal barrage against Cpl. Joshua Sparling. Sparling argued back with the man, using facts rather than name-calling, but the man just got madder and madder, and said something about fighting, but not with a man in a wheelchair. Sparling asked for his crutches and stood up to talk with the guy.
The man then started calling us all "crackers" and racists. Sparling said that he had nothing to do with slavery and that if it had not been for soldiers fighting wars, he'd still be a slave. The man was not in the mood for facts, so he continued hurling insults and poking his finger at Sparling. Sparling said that if it weren't for soldiers he wouldn't be here (on the sidewalk), and the angry man said yes, he would, "with a gun!"
At that point, the police stepped in and told the man to go away.
I'm shocked (not really) at the violence inherent in the peace community.
Later, as the march continued, the wounded soldiers stood along the inner fencing and used their strong voices and bullhorns to talk with the marchers. Most marchers flashed the peace sign, some flashed the single-digit salute signifying their IQs, but others stopped along the outer fence to argue, or to curse.
The ones who seemed rational would carry on a conversation, of sorts; and the soldiers and veterans made very good arguments. Though we can't be sure that anyone they talked to was persuaded to change their positions, at least they stopped long enough to think about what was being said to them.
For other marchers who were smart-asses, or who shouted curses and accusations, we heckled them without mercy.
I took almost two hours of video which I whittled down to less than thirty minutes. I mean, how many minutes of "Peace. Now!" "Stop the war. Impeach Bush!" "9-11 was an inside job!" and "Free, Free Palestine!" can anyone stomach?
Here's the videos, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3, in that order. Some lighter moments, some harsh and ugly stuff, and some stuff screaming out for Prozac:

Poor babies. They say that this is mean-spirited, that it is "violent."
I wonder why they aren't equally outraged by these photos:
That's an effigy of a cowboy-booted and G-string clad President GW Bush, as seen at the "peace" rally in Washington, DC last Saturday. How about this one:
That photo was also taken at the "peace" rally, by blogger Tantor.
Again, no cries of "That's mean!" from the radical America-haters for their comrades' signage.
Here's one other particularly peaceful photo of a lefty sign, from another of their "peace" protests last year:
Take the plank out of your own eyes, then come talk to us.

The Radical Left Shows Their Love of the Troops - By Spitting on Them, Threatening To Pull Guns on Them, Calling Them Killers...
And while many news stories report on the Spitting Incident where a peace rioter spit at wounded Iraq vet, Cpl. Joshua Sparling, not a one reported on the other incidents that I witnessed during our counter protest on Saturday, January 27, 2007.
The peace rioters, who say they support the troops but not the war, called the dozen or so wounded soldiers in our group killers, fools, nobodies, assholes. They screamed at the men to "Enlist!" When the guys said they were in or had gone to Iraq, the darling little lefties shouted at them to "Go back!"
We just can't make the radical left happy.
If I do this correctly, you will see an embedded YouTube video box. This is just some of the nearly two hours of video I shot that day. On this installment (Part 1 of two parts), you will see an angry man accuse Joshua Sparling of being a dummy and a killer. As the man got angrier, he began to wave his hands around and jab his finger in the air at Josh as he hurled his hate-filled accusations. When Josh started poking his own finger in the air, angry man went nutso! He made some insane racial accusations at Joshua and all the other white people in the area, and said if they weren't there (to back up Joshua, I guess) angry man would have been "there with a gun" to deal with Josh.
So while the media reported on spitting, many of the radical leftist bloggers and websites are trying to discredit that story by calling Joshua a liar. Spitting at Joshua was the mildest thing they did to the soldiers last Saturday. I guess a video camera was a good investment. The proof of the radicals' hatred of America, Americans, and especially American soldiers is in the video:
Part 2 will be up soon. Stay tuned...

OK, now you know how I feel about Jane Fonda's actions during the Vietnam war.
Apparently, causing the torture and death of many American soldiers in that war wasn't enough for this traitor. She's back to do to this generation of soldier what she did to their fathers, uncles and grandfathers; and to spit on the memory of all our past military veterans.
Jihad Jane is a headliner at a pre-rally rally, at the US Navy Memorial.
Yes, the traitor is coming to a military memorial to denounce the military, the administration, and the USA.
Are you angry yet?
Are you angry enough to get off your duff and get out in the street?
Well, you're in luck! A bunch of other folks who love this country and support our war on terrorists are going to be at the Navy Memorial to let washed-up actresses Jane Fonda, Susan Sarandon and Rhea Perlman, Congress-creatures Maxine Waters (RAT-CA) and Lynn Woolsey (RAT-CA), Vagina Monologues' Eve Ensler and other America-haters know what we think about them and their blood dance at a military memorial.
Here's what you need to know:
Where: Navy Memorial, 7th and Pennsylvania NW
When: Saturday, January 27, 2007 at 9am
Please bring American and service flags, signs bearing messages of support for our troops, as well as signs denouncing Fonda and her band of traitors.
The enemies of this nation are feeling so emboldened that they are confident enough to bring Jane Fonda to a MEMORIAL for the United States Navy. During the Vietnam war Fonda traveled to North Vietnam and posed with our enemy on an anti-aircraft battery used to shoot down our Navy pilots.

Where in the Hell were the US Capitol Police officers while these Moonbats were scurrying through the Hart Building and setting up their banners to drop over balconies?
Setting up for the banner drops and the follow-up goofy-grin photos had to take a fair amount of time. Can any Cindy, Medea or Gael wander freely through a Federal building carrying a backpack stuffed to overflowing with whatever they care to bring into the building, and have all the time they need to set up their media stunt, without the US Capitol Police even raising an eyebrow?
This is the second time that Medea and Company have pulled this stunt; and I can't count the number of times that this crowd has been allowed into hearings, press conferences, speeches and other events on US Capitol Police "protected" areas, only to disrupt and cause a public disturbance.
By now, the US Capitol Police Department should know these characters on sight.
Why are they allowed entry into secure areas?
Consider this, if Cindy and crowd can wander freely through the Hart Senate Building - taking the time to do whatever they want, without a Capitol cop taking notice - how long until Ahmed, Mustafa and Barack (no, not Obama) try the same thing? Only they won't be dropping a banner into the lobby.
