  • NFL’s end run to the left doesn’t sit well with Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon

    09/22/2016 9:18:35 AM PDT · by Oldpuppymax · 20 replies
    “Kilgannon Demands NFL Halt Anti-American Protests” Not everyone agrees with the radical swerve to the left exhibited by the National Football League during the past years. On September 6th, Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon addressed a direct though respectful letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, asking that he put an end to the Anti-American, National Anthem protests of San Francisco Forty Niners’ reserve Colin Kaepernick and other players. Speaking “…on behalf of those we represent at Freedom Alliance – military heroes and their families,” Kilgannon made certain to remind Commissioner Goodell that the NFL, its teams owners and players are...

    EPHRATA, PA — Five years ago, this annual Christmas column was written while our Fox News "War Stories" team was embedded with the U.S. Army's 3rd Infantry Division south of Baghdad. A year earlier, the Christmas 2006 column was written in Ramadi, Iraq, while we were embedded with 1st Battalion, 6th Marines in what was then the bloodiest place on the planet. In 2005, this column originated with 3d Battalion, 7th Marines and the 2nd Brigade of the 28th Infantry Division, Pennsylvania National Guard, in Anbar Province. In the days before Christmas that year, we were able to document the...

    Philadelphia, PA — For most football fanatics, this is the time of year for watching the big conference championship games and wondering whether their favorite college team is going play in a major postseason bowl. Many of the players in these contests will be hoping to shine for the NFL scouts looking to recruit new talent. That's not the case this weekend. Few of the players I'll be watching on Saturday are likely to get a call from Jerry Maguire. They won't be hearing an agent shouting, "Show me the money!" In fact, all the players on the gridiron here...

    Tom Kilgannon, President of Freedom Alliance shared his thoughts recently touching on the organizations multi part mission: “… to advance the American heritage of freedom by honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States and promoting a strong national defense.” Let me be timely here Tom. Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up quickly. Your “Gifts from Home” initiative is part of the Alliances’ work. Tell us about this gift program so people can spread the word to help out this year. For the deployed troops, they love getting our Gifts From Home care packages. First, it...

      WASHINGTON — Few of us ever will meet a Medal of Honor recipient. Fewer still ever will have the opportunity to be of assistance to one. In part, that's because "The Medal" — our nation's highest military decoration, awarded for "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty" — is worn by just 85 living Americans.Since we were attacked on 9/11, the Medal of Honor has been awarded only nine times to the more than 2 million Americans who have served in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    For the last several years, Sean Hannity and the Freedom Alliance “charity” have conducted “Freedom Concerts” across America. They’ve told you that they are raising money to pay for the college tuition of the children of fallen soldiers and to pay severely wounded war vets. And on Friday Night, Hannity will be honored with an award for this “Outstanding Community Service by a Radio Talk Show Host” at Talkers Magazine’s convention. But it’s all a huge scam. In fact, less than 20%–and in two recent years, less than 7% and 4%, respectively–of the money raised by Freedom Alliance went to...

    We’re finally starting to see the rest of the world come to realize what I originally reported on this site: that both Sean Hannity and Freedom Alliance are defrauding donors to their scams, er . . . “charities.” And now, as a result of my work, a major charity evaluator–a charity evaluator whose rating of the group I exposed as completely flawed–has woken up downgraded Freedom Alliance, slashing its rating in half. A few weeks ago, I blew the lid off of the fraud that is Sean Hannity’s Freedom Concerts and the scam “charity” known as “Freedom Alliance.” I showed...

    Today, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed complaints with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) against Sean Hannity, his Freedom Concerts, the Freedom Alliance and Lt. Col. Oliver North. Copies of the complaints were also sent to the attorney generals of the states in which concerts are scheduled to be held this summer. CREW’s FTC complaint alleges Hannity and Freedom Concerts have engaged in illegal and deceptive marketing practices by suggesting that all money generated by ticket sales for the Freedom Concerts he sponsors each summer goes to scholarships for children of...

    Debbie Schlussel posted a long piece last evening about a charity that Sean Hannity is affiliated with, accusing them of malfeasance and mismangement. FrumForum has done an exhaustive investigation of the charity in question, Freedom Alliance, and found enough evidence to substantially rebut each of Schlussel’s claims. I’ll approach them one by one.

    I felt I had to write this as I have taken part in nearly every Freedom Concert Tour since Sean Hannity and Col. Oliver North have been promoting them over the last few years. First of all my late father was promoter of disco bands back in the 1970’s, so I do have a bit of insight into events and the behind scene cost of putting on events that the general public will never know. While Hannity and North have publicly stated that most of the artists involved in the Freedom Concert Tour donate their time to the effort in...

    Townhall.com’s gold partner Freedom Alliance is sponsoring the 2007 Hannity Freedom Concerts all across America this summer. Greg Stamps, a native Texan and a longtime member of the Townhall.com team, represented Townhall at the August 14 concert and sat down with Freedom Alliance president Tom Kilgannon at the Texas event. They discussed all aspects of the concert, but the description of the scholarship fund stood out most to me when Greg recalled the interview. After interviewing Tom, here is Greg's brief description of the fund: He told me that Freedom Alliance will provide $500K+ this year for 115-120 scholarships for Gold Star...

    FReeper Doug From Upland just phoned in this report from San Diego: He and others are on location in the arena where Sean Hannity will be appearing to a huge crowd of Americans this evening. Some of those to appear with tonight Sean are Lt. Col. Oliver North, former Senator Fred Thompson and Presidential Candidate Duncan Hunter. Doug said he spent half an hour with Hannity's producer discussing Hillary's seamy underbelly and had the chance to speak with Sean himself, who said Hi to Freepers as he's often done before. Sean said to Doug, "We're on the same side here,...

    It is hard to imagine a sacrifice more selfless than the ultimate sacrifice of an American soldier. Thousands upon thousands throughout American history have given their lives in the name of freedom, but how many of their names do you remember? How many times have you said “thank you” when you’ve seen a serviceman returning home from war? How many prayers have you said for the families of those who won’t be coming back? Not enough. None of us could do enough. In the last 20 years, over 15,000 service members have given their lives defending our country. More than...

    Guys this is going to take the cake. About 10 days ago at work one of my coworkers was typing away listening to Sean on his radio. (we get it on tape delay) The supervisor walked by and noted the station that showed up on the digital display. He berated him for listening to Sean because he is an evil conservative whack job and it offends people around him. Note he had headphones on so nobody could hear his radio. And in an office where the leader has a radio on at all times low that we can hear but...
