The Obama administration is waffling on providing our troops what they need for success in Afghanistan. The internal debate in the White House swings between declaring defeat and sticking it out, but no voices appear to be raised in favor of Victory.  So the procrastination drags on and our troops and the people of Afghanistan suffer for it.

Sgt. Daniel Bell, the Missouri State Captain of Vets For Freedom asks that you sign this petition to pressure the president to give General McChrystal what he needs to do the job!

CLICK HERE to sign the “Give our Generals What They Need” Petition.

His letter follows:

Fellow Vets for Freedom members:

My name is Sergeant Daniel Bell and I’m the Missouri State Captain of Vets for Freedom. Much more importantly, I served as a Special Operations Medic under General Stanley McChrystal in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Serving under General McChrystal–one of the most frequently deployed service members to Iraq and Afghanistan–gave me a first-hand perspective on this man’s dedication to our country. Whether I was listening to one of his briefs, or flying alongside him on a mission, Gen. McChrystal’s decisive leadership was always evident.

He always instilled confidence in the men of his task force by leading the way–and being on the ground–during dangerous missions. If there ever was a commander who knows what is taking place on the ground, and understands why type of strategy we need to win, it is Stan McChrystal.

There is no military leader I respect more than General McChrystal. Our troops in Afghanistan could not have a more competent and dedicated commander, and I’m committed to doing anything possible to ensure General McChrystal is given the support he needs to turn the tide in Afghanistan.

Please join me in supporting General McChrystal by signing the Vets for Freedom “Give the Generals What They Need” Petition.

Move out and draw fire!

ACORN falls back on strong arm tactics to stem the flow of revelations!

ACORN-Snake

Rolling out their political stooges like Barney Frank to threaten investigations into the muckraking going on over at BigGovernment.com

Now ACORN has called out their legions of lawyers to go after the courageous young duo who exposed the corrupt criminal underpinnings of the monolithic criminal enterprise for all the world to see.

The tentacles of the ACORN monster plunge deep into the political structure of the Democrat party and will exert all of their “power of persuasion” to drive politicians, lawyers, district attorneys and anyone they’ve bought in the past to their defence.

Like cannon fodder they will be used up trying to defend the indefensible.

The rot in the ACORN tree will eventually cause it to fall.

Michelle Malkin has the scoop

The Wall Street Journal covered the Barney Frank angle.

Another view is that ACORN has just sprayed Miracle Grow on the seeds of their own destruction by opening the door to discovery by the attorneys for the defendants!  From Jonah GOldberg:

Fourth, even if the defendants don’t plead any counterclaims, the scope of discovery against ACORN will be incredibly broad, as it almost always is in civil litigation. ACORN has far, far more to lose from what could come out during discovery than what they are asking for in this suit.

Time to pop some popcorn!
