    An invitation to soldiers and peace officers across the United States to pledge to refuse illegal orders – including "state of emergency" orders that could include disarming or detaining American citizens – has struck a chord, collecting more than 100,000 website visitors in a little over a week and hundreds of e-mails daily. Spokesman Stewart Rhodes of Oath Keepers told WND his organization's goal is to remind military members their oath of allegiance is to the U.S. Constitution, not a particular president. He said the organization deliberately does not collect the names of those who subscribe to Oath Keepers' beliefs...

    LAPTOPS FOR WOUNDED WARRIORS, founded by GATHERING OF EAGLES, has delivered another free laptop to a deserving serviceman today, April 28, 2012. It is with great pleasure I wish to announce the donation of a laptop to a wounded warrior today, SSgt Charlie Pannell, in Anderson, South Carolina. Charlie was injured in September 2008 by an Iraqi terrorist's grenade in operations while clearing houses in a combat action. He told me that most of the men hit that day had died of their wounds, while his injuries have led to the amputation of his left leg and continuing infections...

    Folks, recently some people associated with patriot groups have been involved with exposing the background of a Campaign for Liberty cabndidate, Adam Kokesh, for what we believe are to be serious character issues, specifically, his involvement with Anti-war activities and his participation in protests against America, his attempts to coerce American troops to desert their units in Ansbach, Germany in time of war. Well, the campaign for Liberty is fighting back with threats of a lawsuit against certain individuals

    PROTECT THE SANCTITY OF ARLINGTON CEMETERY, Saturday, March 20,2010 - Notice #2 Some changes since the November notice was first posted. First, we will still have a presence at Arlington Cemetery Memorial circle. More later in this thread. The moonbats have change their abnormal plans from years past. This year they appear to be eliminating their march to the Pentagon. They plan on staying in D.C. to protest Obama’s handling of foreign affairs, from Afghanistan to Iraq to Haiti. But they have not yet mentioned any times or particulars. Either way, we’ll be in the Circle. If you want read...

  • DHS methodology used in "Rightwing Extremism" memo revealed

    08/15/2009 3:50:00 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 48 replies · 2,626+ views
    Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today condemned the methodology used by the Department of Homeland Security in issuing a controversial "right-wing extremism" threat assessment to law enforcement in April as "complete speculation." "Our worse fears about what went into this memo have been confirmed. The government department that was supposed to be tasked with identifying domestic terrorist threats is apparently using news stories, kooky websites, and conjecture instead of actual hard intelligence reporting and analysis," said Wilson. "This is a disgrace, and calls into question what it is that the so-called 'Extremism and Radicalizaton Branch of the Homeland...

    Today was a great day on Long Island.Patriots from the Conservative Society for Action, Gathering of Eagles, Active and the 912 Group rallied in front of the offices of Senator Charles Schumer to counter the staged pro-nationalized healthcare rally planned by and ACORN.The first moonbats arrived and almost immediately called the police because they hate free speech and any opposition to their agenda. One of their old biddies called me a racist for opposing health care for illegal immigrants. Unfortunately for them the first amendment is still enforced in this country and the police would not interfere with...

    Gathering of Eagles and Eagles Up has announced this year’s plans for Recruiter Appreciation Day. Armed Forces Day is on Saturday, May 16, but GoE is dedicating the whole week, May 11 to May 16, to Recruiter Appreciation Day. The whole week will give everyone a chance to better plan their Day. The GoE link has a lot of great ideas so be sure to look at it, especially if you are new to this. There have been several One FReeper Recruiter Appreciation visits in the past so don’t think you need a group. Just do it. If the recruiting...

    Acknowledging that “an apology is owed,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano promised Thursday to “meet and clear the air” with veterans groups that were offended by her agency’s report citing “returning veterans” as terrorist risks to the U.S. “To the extent veterans read it as an accusation,” Napolitano told FOX News, “an apology is owed.” “I’ll meet with the leaders of some of the veterans groups,” she promised on “FOX & Friends.” “The last thing we want to do is offend or castigate all veterans. To the contrary, let’s meet and clear the air.” Napolitano said she was briefed on...

    Retired Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell, winner of the Navy Cross for heroism in Afghanistan, says he doesn't sleep well at night. So when the trained Navy Seal heard a gunshot go off near his ranch in Walker county Texas at 1:30 in the morning, he immediately sprang into action. After first checking in on his mother, Luttrell made his way out to the tree line of his property. There he saw the headlights of a car with a handful of young men loudly joking, standing outside of it. "I could see my dog lying in the ditch," Luttrell said

    The Westboro Baptist Church, whose members tour the country protesting at military funerals because they claim America is tolerant of homosexuality, is thanking God for record flooding in North Dakota. “God sent the flood waters to cover the evil people of Bismarck and Fargo, ND, where you flipped off God and raised your hands against His anointed by criminalizing WBC’s gospel preaching against” gays and their supporters, declared a statement released Wednesday by the church, which is in Topeka, Kan. The statement referred to House Bill 1040, a North Dakota state law passed in January 2007 that bars protestors from...

    The Virginian-Pilot ^ | March 25, 2009 | Dale Eisman
    Senators moved Wednesday toward creation of a “Veterans Corps” of up to 5,000 paid volunteers to work on aid programs for vets, their families and the families of active-duty troops. The corps is part of a group of national service initiatives backed by the Obama administration and an unusual bipartisan coalition in Congress. Participants would work directly with veterans and bolster existing aid programs run by state and local governments and non-profit groups. With civilian jobs increasingly hard to come by, the corps would give people leaving the military another way of serving their country and staying off the unemployment...

    The Obama administration on Wednesday abandoned a controversial plan to make veterans use private insurance to pay for costly treatments of combat-related injuries. Stung by the angry reaction to the proposal, the administration made the decision after a meeting between officials from 11 veterans advocacy groups and top White House officials. "Our voices were heard," said Norbert Ryan, the president of the Military Officers Association of America. "They made the right decision on this." The plan would've reversed a longstanding policy of providing government health coverage for all service-related injuries. Few details emerged beyond its reported savings of $540 million,...

    Hey, G.I., is that a gun in your pocket, or is it just Obama and company reaching for your insurance card? President Barack Obama pledged to be a friend to veterans while on the campaign trail. As a matter of fact, while at a town hall meeting with veterans in Las Cruces, N.M., Obama said: “One of the best ways that we can honor our fallen soldiers is to honor those who came back, who survived. And so, to all the veterans who are here, I am grateful to your service, and as president of the United States, I will...
