Gathering of Eagles Fighting the Insurgency at Home
Action Alert

Last week David Crosby (of Crosby, Stills and Nash fame) let loose a screed on Chris Matthews’ television show defaming our troops and their mission.

“And he goes over and he finds out the job is killing somebody else’s mother and sister.”

This Sunday, October 28th, he is participating in a fund raiser for incumbent U.S. Representative, John Hall (of Hall and Oates fame) at a location in Bedford Hills, NY. Mr. Hall refuses to cancel the appearance or condemn the statements David Crosby made.

Marine Corps and OIF veteran, Kieran Lalor, who has been active in support of our troops and the Gathering of Eagles, has taken up the challenge to protest David Crosby’s appearance at this event for the left wing political elite of Westchester County. We need to support him in this effort and to help ensure that former celebrities understand that we will not permit slander of our brave men and women in uniform to go unanswered!

Bring Flags, Signs, Banners, Bullhorns, whistles, bells and anything else you deem appropriate. A large media presence is expected so bring as many of your friends and family as possible.

Email this Action Alert to anyone you feel may be able to help us support our troops. For more information and video of the David Crosby slur visit:

The North Country Patriots took on the North Country Peace Group in a lively and spirited debate last night in Setauket. Jim, Graham and Matt laid out a concise and factual argument for our initial decision to invade Iraq and for continuing our operations there until we achieve Victory. The Moonbats, on the other hand, continued to spout the standard lies, deceptive propaganda, obfuscations and distortions that we have all heard so many times before. One of their debaters was even a 911 troother which got some groans from our side.

The debate format was interrupted at the outset when one of our VFW supporters pointed out that we had not said the Pledge of Allegiance. The moderator apologized and most, but not all, of the audience stood to correct that. Frankly, the audience of about 150 were mostly on the moonbat side, one lady was even wearing her Code Pink jacket when she arrived.

The moderators attempted to request that the VFW members who attended remove their hats, but were quickly disabused of that notion.

A lively question and answer session followed the presentations, but like the presentations themselves, our side could quote facts and figures, recite quotes from actual people, etc…, while theirs avoided questions and talked about ‘feelings’, ‘all about oil’, ‘investigate 911’, etc…

A truly disgusting question, by a man purporting to be a veteran, was directed toward Matt, the high school student, which started off attacking him for being glib in his reference to the low casualties in Iraq and then asking if he was planning to join the military. Matt handled it well and Graham backed him up saying they were trying to put the casualty rate into historical perspective.

Several questions were asked of the ‘Peace Group’ that they just ignored by rambling on about unrelated matters. A particularly good one was asked by a gentleman who personally knew one of the UN WMD Inspectors who had cataloged the existence of chemical and nerve agents in Iraq before the war. The ‘peacers’ could only say that there was nothing there after the war.

I have to say that the Patriots certainly won the debate hands down, but were unlikely to have swayed the opinions of any of the moonbats in the audience.

A few pictures from the debate are here.

Patriots Rule Berkeley!

There was a tremendously successful pro-troops rally yesterday in the heart of moonbat la-la-land, Berkeley, California. Hundreds turned out to answer the call from Melanie Morgan of Move America Forward, Michelle Malkin and the Gathering of Eagles to protect the Marine Recruiting Station from the ravages of the Code Pink faction of the neo-commie horde led by none other than that paragon of anti-Americanism, Medea Benjamin. Once more patriots ruled the day!
