URGENT ALERT ! Democrat Party Challenges Move America Forward !!!

"RENEWING THE AMERICAN DREAM"

The national Democrat Party, the Democrat Party of Nevada, the Washoe County Democrat Party and the Carson City Democrat Party have all teamed up together to organize a counter-rally against Move America Forward's "Fight for Victory Tour" kickoff event in Carson City, Nevada on Monday, September 3, 2007.

This is fascinating to us at Move America Forward because we welcome, and have invited to speak, persons of all political parties who support our troops AND their missions in the war on terrorism.

How a major political party could organize a national effort to counter a "Fight for Victory Tour" is baffling? Do these political activists not support Victory for U.S. troops in Iraq?

Here's just a sampling of the Democrat Party websites that we've come across that are mobilizing against us. PLEASE - we urge you to help us ensure we have a giant turnout of pro-troop supporters of ALL political parties who will offer our troops the support they need to achieve SUCCESS in their missions and VICTORY for this nation.

This is no accident that national, state and local Democrat Party organizations are mobilizing against our pro-troop caravan. We are obviously going to be countered at our rallies by Democrat Party activists, who will try to dwarf our rallies with their own well-funded counter protests.

Deception built super-secret abortion clinic

"RENEWING THE AMERICAN DREAM"


Planned Parenthood concealed its ownership of a huge new abortion facility scheduled to open soon in a Chicago suburb, and pro-life advocates – and at least one city official – are questioning whether the abortion provider can mislead officials without repercussions.

"There's always legal ramifications," Aurora, Ill., Alderman Richard Irvin told the Chicago Tribune while standing with some of the estimated 1,200 pro-life protesters who assembled over the weekend to protest the existence of the structure that had been depicted by owners as an office building.

He was not on the board when the project, proposed by a company identifying itself as "Gemini Office Development," was approved. But he said he has concerns the building was brought into his city under false pretenses, and said the city could sue Planned Parenthood for being deceptive.

There was no acknowledgement during the permit application and construction processes that the project actually was scheduled to be an abortion business. However, as WND columnist Jill Stanek reported, a pro-life construction worker on the 22,000-square foot site became suspicious of the bulletproof glass and surgical suites, components not routine in an office building.

It was soon outed as an abortion facility, prompting the weekend protest, and outrage from pro-life community members who said, as Stanek phrased it, "If citizens may lie to occupancy permit officials, may they also lie to police officers? Or at city council meetings? Where will Aurora draw the line between permissible and impermissible lies?"

Don't you think it's funny that those same sick, misguided liberals who stood at the airports in California and screamed "baby killer" at us when we returned from Vietnam in the 60's and 70's are the very same people who are systematically killing babies today?

Vets for Freedom - Sign The Petition !

"RENEWING THE AMERICAN DREAM"


It's the week before Labor Day weekend and all of America is eyeing the weekend, ready to enjoy the last gasp of summer. All, that is, except MoveOn.org and the anti-war crowd. They targeted today - Tuesday, August 28 specifically - to once again try and pull the plug on Iraq.

Using smoke and mirrors, and with help from a complicit media and hundreds of paid political operatives, various anti-war groups will try and create the perception that all Americans are against this war, and that we are "losing" in Iraq.

When in fact, the news from Iraq-from the guys involved in the fight-is that we are defeating Al Qaeda, dampening the violence, and making great progress. General Petraeus and his new counterinsurgency strategy are working, and must be given time to succeed.

So, in addition to attending town hall meetings in your area and rallying your fellow veterans to attend "Vets on the Hill" on September 17 & 18, below are two more ways-this week-that you can help amplify your voice and overcome the voices of defeat.


What You Can Do This Week!


See the petition that we will be presenting members of Congress on the 17th and 18th of September. If you believe that General Petraeus deserves the time he needs to succeed, if you believe that Iraq is now the central front on the war on terrorism, if you believe that premature withdrawal from Iraq would be catastrophic - then we need your signature on this petition.

http://www.vetsforfreedom.com/tenweeks/petition.aspx

Please take the time to forward this email to your friends and family as well - and ask them to sign the petition. And for non-veterans, this is a great way to support our event on September 17 & 18.

Our strength is in our numbers!

EAGLES UP, EVERYONE !!!!

Jimmy Carter's Man Endorses Osama bin Obama !!!

"RENEWING THE AMERICAN DREAM"

Aug. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Zbigniew Brzezinski, one of the most influential foreign-policy experts in the Democratic Party, threw his support behind Barack Obama's presidential candidacy, saying the Illinois senator has a better global grasp than his chief rival, Hillary Clinton.

Obama ``recognizes that the challenge is a new face, a new sense of direction, a new definition of America's role in the world,'' Brzezinski said in an interview on Bloomberg Television's ``Political Capital with Al Hunt.''

``Obama is clearly more effective and has the upper hand,'' Brzezinski, who was President Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, said. ``He has a sense of what is historically relevant, and what is needed from the United States in relationship to the world.''

Brzezinski, 79, dismissed the notion that Clinton, 59, a New York senator and the wife of former President Bill Clinton, is more seasoned than Obama, 46. ``Being a former first lady doesn't prepare you to be president,'' Brzezinski said.

Note:

So where does the Democrat Party stand, repeating the amoral "stain" of the Clinton years under American Communism, or the banal ineptitude of the Carter years under Elmer Fudd? Sad. Very sad.

Mandatory Deportation Has Illegals On The Run

"RENEWING THE AMERICAN DREAM"

State law limiting benefits looms, an estimated 25,000 take to road !!!


Thousands of Hispanics have fled the Tulsa, Okla., area in the shadow of a looming state law that limits benefits and mandates deportation for illegal aliens, according to a report from KTUL television in Tulsa.

The state of Oklahoma recently approved a new law that requires deportation for illegal aliens who are arrested, and limits benefits and jobs to those individuals. The report said in East Tulsa, where a community of Hispanics has grown over recent years, there's been a sudden drop in population.

17 Of The 100 Worst Employers Using Illegal Employees Were Government Agencies

If President Bush is serious about getting tough on U.S. employers who hire illegal aliens, he can start with his own administration, which employs thousands of unauthorized workers, says the top Republican on the House immigration subcommittee.

A 2006 audit showed federal, state and local governments are among the biggest employers of the half-million persons in the U.S. illegally using "non-work" Social Security numbers — numbers issued legally, but with specific instructions that the holders are not authorized to work in the U.S.

According to the 2006 audit by the Social Security inspector general, 17 of the 100 worst employers using employees with non-work numbers were government agencies: seven federal agencies, seven state agencies and three local governments. That means the government knows who those employees are, but usually does not go after them.

Iraqi Terrorists Coming Into America From Mexico

Iraqi terrorists have been captured coming into the United States from Mexico, according to a top intelligence aide to President Bush. National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell says there's a path through Mexico that terrorists follow into the U.S. "Are they doing it in great numbers? No, because we're finding them and we're identifying them and we've got watch lists and we're keeping them at bay." But, he said, "There are numerous situations where people are alive today because we caught them (terrorists)."

Elvira Arellano: Immigration Activist Deported to Mexico

LOS ANGELES (AP) - An illegal immigrant who took refuge in a Chicago church for a year to avoid being separated from her U.S.-born son has been deported to Mexico, the church's pastor said.

Elvira Arellano became an activist and a national symbol for illegal immigrant parents as she defied her deportation order and spoke out from her religious sanctuary. She held a news conference last week to announce that she would finally leave the church to try to lobby U.S. lawmakers for change.

She had just spoken at a Los Angeles rally when she was arrested Sunday outside Our Lady Queen of Angels church and deported, said the Rev. Walter Coleman, pastor of Adalberto United Methodist Church in Chicago, where Arellano had been living.

Arellano, 32, arrived in Washington state illegally in 1997. She was deported to Mexico shortly afterward, but returned and moved to Illinois in 2000, taking a job cleaning planes at O'Hare International Airport.

She was arrested in 2002 at O'Hare and convicted of working under a false Social Security number. She was to surrender to authorities last August but instead sought refuge at the church on Aug. 15, 2006.

She had not left the church property until she decided to travel by car to Los Angeles, Coleman said.

Anti-illegal immigrant groups said the arrest was long overdue.

Well, duh!

Jane Fonda’s Radio Network Tanks

The "feminist” radio company whose founders include Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem failed to attract an audience and it signed off the air for good on Friday.

When the talk-radio network, called GreenStone, officially launched in September 2006, NewsMax reported that it was a "new left-wing radio network that plans to appeal to women listeners and counter the dominance of conservative talk radio.”

GreenStone claimed it would deliver "de-politicized, de-polarized talk radio by women hosts for female listeners,” and Steinem said it would offer an alternative to current radio talk, which she described as "very argumentative, quite hostile, and very much male-dominated.”

She also said radio was "overbalanced toward the ultra-right.” But "Greenstone Media’s brand of tepid liberalism didn’t appeal to women,” Carrie Lukas, author of "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex and Feminism,” writes in the New York Post."Women want to be entertained and engaged. We don’t listen to radio or (Hillary backers take note) vote out of solidarity.”

Deborah Johns: "Support the Fight for Victory Tour!"

My son, U.S. Marine William Johns, has served three tours of duty in Iraq, and stands ready to be deployed for a possible fourth tour and you know what -- I couldn't be more proud of him.

We've heard time and again from those in our nation who choose to root for defeat and surrender to Islamic jihadists in Iraq. You've heard their refrain, "if you believe in this war so much, why don't you go enlist and serve."

Well my son is serving, and yet that doesn't stop them from attacking the pro-troop efforts I've been involved in for the past several years. They haven't offered William or his brothers and sisters in the military any support or once praised them for stepping up and fighting for a nation they love and respect.

But that's OK, my fellow Americans, it really is.

My son along with hundreds of thousands of other sons and daughters are fighting to ensure that we all have the right to freely express our views, including those who call for surrender to jihadists in this war. But our troops are also fighting for the rights of those of us who stand behind them to have our voices heard as well.

It's long past time for those of us who support our troops and their missions to speak up and take action to make sure our troops have our unwavering support and backing.

I've been asked to serve as one of the spokespersons for Move America Forward's upcoming "Fight for Victory Tour," a patriotic, pro-troop national caravan that takes place September 3rd - 15th.

The timing couldn't be more critical, with General David Petraeus, the commander of U.S. troops serving in Iraq, required to report to Congress by September 15th on the progress of "the surge" of U.S. troops in Iraq.

General Petraeus and our troops in Iraq are going to need our support in a big way.

Move America Forward will be putting on 27 pro-troop rallies in cities along the "Fight for Victory Tour" caravan route. At each pro-troop rally we'll also collect cards and letters of support for our wounded warriors and deliver them to our recovering troops at Walter Reed Medical Center at the completion of the national pro-troop caravan.

So my question to you is this: will you stand up for our troops and be counted? Will you please drive along part or all of the caravan route with us in your own vehicle? Will you turn out for one of our pro-troop rallies along the way?

I know it's a lot to ask. But everyday the men and women of the U.S. military, and the veterans and fallen heroes before them, have answered the call and engaged in much more arduous tasks.

I will give up 2 weeks away from my family to go on the road and salute our troops and support them here on the home front.

What I ask of you is that I not be alone in this effort.

22 Congressmen Urge Bush To Back Off SPP

Twenty-two members of the U.S. House of Representatives – 21 Republicans and a Democrat – are urging President Bush to back off his North American integration efforts when he attends the third summit meeting on the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America next week in Montebello, Quebec.

They make it clear that continuing any such agenda at this point would be disregarding growing apprehension in Congress about the plans.

"As you travel to Montebello, Canada later this month for a summit with your Canadian and Mexican counterparts, we want you to be aware of serious and growing concerns in the U.S. Congress about the so-called Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) you launched with these nations in 2005," the letter said.

General Petraeus Says He Will Propose Troop Cuts

BAGHDAD (AP) - The top American commander in Iraq said Wednesday he was preparing recommendations on troop cuts before he returns to Washington next month for a report to Congress, and believes the U.S. footprint in Iraq will have to be "a good bit smaller" by next summer.

But he cautioned against a quick or significant U.S. withdrawal that could surrender "the gains we have fought so hard to achieve."

Gen. David Petraeus said the "horrific and indiscriminate attacks" that killed at least 250 Yazidis, an ancient religious sect, in northwestern Iraq Tuesday night were the work of al-Qaida in Iraq. That would bolster his argument, he said, against too quickly drawing down the 30,000 additional U.S. troops deployed in the first half of the year.

Petraeus said the shift in loyalty among many Sunni insurgents in Iraq's western Anbar province, Baghdad's Amariyah district and a similar hotspot in the city called Ghazaliyah was "a pretty big deal."

"You have to pinch yourself a little to make sure that is real because that is a very significant development in this kind of operation in counterinsurgency," he said. "It's all about the local people. When all the sudden the local people are on the side of the new Iraq instead of on the side of the insurgents or even al-Qaida, that's a very significant change."

Ski resort's 'Impeach Bush' vote backfires !!!
'Hundreds' cancel trips, homeowner threatens to move out !!!



Colorado's Telluride ski resort

Some of the ski fans who have patronized Telluride, Colo., now are calling the ritzy resort "the land of radical liberals" and canceling planned vacations there because the town board voted to approve an ordinance calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

One ski club of 175 people already has made plans to go elsewhere, another skier has threatened to sell his home there and another critic predicted the town soon would bow to Mecca.

"It's huge, unbelievable," said Telluride Mayor John Pryor. "Ski groups are canceling for the winter. Hundreds of people are bailing. The (town) website is flooded with people saying they're canceling their vacations here."

The storm of protest followed the town board's recent vote on the impeachment issue, according to the Denver Post. The report said among the labels being pinned on the town include: Moonbats, lunatics, boobs, bong smokers and left-bots.

Military officers rapped over Christian video

Four generals among personnel found to have violated ethics regulations.

WASHINGTON - The Army and Air Force are considering disciplinary action against seven officers — including four generals — who violated ethics rules by assisting a Christian group in the production of a fundraising video.

The Pentagon inspector general found the officers were interviewed in uniform and “in official and often identifiable Pentagon locations,” according to a 45-page report.

They made comments that “conferred approval of and support” to the evangelical group, Christian Embassy, “and the remarks of some officers implied they spoke for a group of senior military leaders rather than just for themselves,” the report stated.

Excuse me? There's no doubt in this old grunt's mind that if they had made a Muslum video, absolutley no one would have uttered a single word of complaint. How much longer can America survive under such anti-Christian bigotry?

PRAY FOR PEACE

One Minute Each Night during WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace. This had an amazing effect as bombing stopped. There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America. If you would like to participate: Each evening at 9:00 P.M. Eastern, 8:00 P.M. Central, 7:00 P.M. Mountain, 6:00 P.M. Pacific Time, stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens and for peace in the world. It has been said that if people really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Our prayers are the most valuable asset we have.

Sean Penn Praised by Venezuela's Chavez

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has praised Sean Penn for his critical stance against the war in Iraq, saying the two chatted by phone and soon plan to meet in person.
Chavez said Penn traveled to Venezuela this week wanting to learn more about the situation in the country and walked around some of Caracas' poor barrios on his own.

"Welcome to Venezuela, Mr. Penn. What drives him is consciousness, the search for new paths," Chavez said Wednesday in a televised speech. "He's one of the greatest opponents of the Iraq invasion."

Chavez read aloud from a recent open letter by Penn to President Bush in which the actor condemned the Iraq war and called for Bush to be impeached, saying the president along with Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice are "villainously and criminally obscene people."

The socialist president, who shares those views, said he and Penn talked by phone—"with my bad English but we understood each other more or less."

US House votes for troop rest guarantee

The US House of Representatives defied a White House veto threat Thursday and passed a bill requiring US soldiers spend an equal amount of time at home as in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan.
The move was the latest bid by the Democratic-led Congress to tie President George W. Bush's hands on war policy, and enforce troops reductions in Iraq.

The bill, which passed by a vote of 229 to 194, would ensure that soldiers could not be deployed to either war, unless they had enjoyed a rest period equal to the length of their previous deployment. Democrats now have a string of failures in their bid to get the president to accept troop withdrawal timetables, but have vowed to press on in an attempt to whittle away Republican support in Congress for the war strategy.

September is now looming as a crucial deadline for the US presence in Iraq, as it is then that General David Petraeus, the top commander in the country, and US ambassador to Baghdad will report to Congress on current strategy.
