An Outstanding Speech from an Outstanding Patriot at the Continuing Revolution Rally in DC!

He gets it.  Go West!

So does Michelle Bachmann:

The war to restore America has just begun.

The domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, still wanted for questioning in San Francisco in the bombing death of a police officer, spoke at Montclair State University in New Jersey Thursday night.

Tea Party activists made up at least half of the audience and questioned Ayers on a number of issues.

The most startling revelation of the night was his claim that he wrote “Dreams from My Father”, Barack Obama’s first book.

A reporter recounts the exchange:

The most astounding thing that Ayers said came toward the end of the question-and-answer session. A local Tea Party member asked Ayers to comment on the quality of Obama’s autobiography, Dreams of my Father. Ayers said,

I think [Dreams] was a very good book, but [Obama’s] second book is a prize example of political hackery. And by the way, I wrote that first book.

The participant asked,

You wrote that?

Ayers replied:

You help me prove that, and I’ll split the royalties with you.

Here’s the video:

More coverage here and here.

This is not the first time Bill Ayers has claimed to be the author of “Dreams of My Father”.  He made the same claim in October of 2009!

It is men like Allen West and David Bellavia and others that we need in Congress right now.

Decorated Iraq War Hero, David Bellavia, filed petitions to run for Congress in New York’s 26th Congressional District last night!

The Bellavia Brigade of volunteers and tea party activists roamed seven counties to complete the task.  Reports were coming in of folks calling all over to find where they could sign a petition before the deadline.  There is no doubt that his sound conservative beliefs and proven steadfastness under fire are qualities the people of that district admire.

Unlike his major opponents, however, David was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth and could use your help!

Let’s Roll!

Afghan War Hero Gary Berntsen has come out full force behind David Bellavia, himself a decorated Iraq War hero, in David’s bid to capture the Congressional seat vacated by the resignation of the Republican Party choice, Christopher Lee.

Here is the text of Gary’s letter:

March 10, 2011

Dear New York Grassroots Activist:

Gary Berntsen

I’m writing to you today with an urgent request. In fact, if you were serving beside me in Afghanistan, this would be an order. Please take a moment to read this letter and I will explain.

First: I need you to go to www.BellaviaforNY.com TODAY and sign up to help Staff Sergeant David Bellavia collect petitions.

Next, I need you to pass this emergency email along to your friends in grassroots, Tea Party and 912 groups. Urge them to join our side in this battle for principle and freedom. We need all freedom-loving defenders of our Constitution to saddle up and ride to NY-26 and help David collect petitions to get on the ballot.

He must collect thousands of signatures in Western New York by March 19th to meet the legal deadline. Without you, he cannot.

Why the fire mission? I’ll be blunt: the same Erie County Republican leaders who killed my 2010 candidacy for the United States Senate have conspired to push David, perhaps the most decorated combat veteran of his generation, out of the campaign for Congress in New York’s 26th Congressional District.

They killed David’s chances to earn the Republican nomination through an insidious whisper campaign, just like they tried to do to me last year. Now they have ordered all petition experts in New York to refuse to help him get on the ballot. “If you help Bellavia,” they say, “you are finished with the Republican Party forever.”

Those shenanigans and that attitude is exactly what is killing the Republican Party. And men and women like David Bellavia, who have risked their lives for our nation, can help us bring dignity and honor to the Grand Old Party and restore sanity to our nation’s capital.

As you may know, I am a 27-year veteran of the military and the CIA’s clandestine service. I was decorated for my service as a combat commander of a team of CIA and special forces in Afghanistan. Many Americans forget 2001 and the terrorist attack on America. But I know you don’t forget, and you remember the intensity of the battles immediately after. We were in the thick of it, behind the lines.

When you’ve served in combat, you share a unique and unexplainable kinship with men and women who also risked their lives in hard-fought battles. I’ve gotten to know Army veteran David Bellavia, and I want to tell you something: he is the real deal. David and his men risked their lives to clear Hezbollah fighters out of Fallujah one house at a time.

David Bellavia is one of those exceptional and honorable Americans who proudly steps forward to serve his nation. His heroism in Iraq is well documented. You can read more in Time Magazine here, and watch a Youtube video of his hand-to-hand combat here.

But let me warn you: this Web video is graphic and disturbing – because war is not a debutante ball.

David is not seeking public office because he is rich and bored. He is a bedrock conservative running on principle, honor and integrity – three core values he learned and exhibited on the deadly battlefields of Iraq.

You see, while his opponent was hosting glamorous house parties, David was fighting house-to-house against an enemy lying in wait to ambush Americans.

While his opponent was showing up for work in a comfortable job at a family company, David was leading a platoon of men who were fighting and dying for our nation.

While his opponent was inheriting millions, David was kicking down doors, taking heavy fire and fighting in brutal hand-to-hand combat in squalid bombed out houses booby-trapped to blow his men into a million pieces.

David was awarded the Silver Star for his actions during the Second Battle of Fallujah and the Bronze Star, three Army Commendation Medals, two Army Achievement Medals and the New York State Conspicuous Service Cross, our State’s highest award.

David has been nominated for the Medal of Honor and the Distinguished Service Cross. In 2005, he was inducted into the New York Veterans’ Hall of Fame.

As a civilian, David has been an active and loyal Republican. He co-founded Vets For Freedom, a national organization that helped seat ten veterans into the House of Representatives. Together, with other like-minded veterans, he built a vast network of young conservatives poised to lead the Republican Party for generations to come.

Vets for Freedom played a major role in the 2008 national election. David and his co-founders raised and spent millions of dollars on twelve states that certainly turned the tide in tough races and stopped the hemorrhaging of Republican seats in others. From our desert battlefields to our continuation of duty at home, David made sure veterans like Congressman Allen West of Florida made a difference in the Republican Party.

David ran for this same nomination in 2008 against the eventual Congressman, millionaire Chris Lee. When Chris Lee and our decorated combat hero became the last two in Republicans in contention, David met with Erie County Republican Party bosses. “It’s not your time,” they told him. For the good of the Party, David decided to bow out of a bitter primary to allow Chris Lee a clear sail into the House of Representatives.

David not only stepped aside, he did something no other primary candidate did for Chris Lee or the Republican Party: he actively supported Chris Lee.

We all know how that worked out for Western New York – Chris Lee was forced to resign.

Now, David needs your help. Party bosses are cutting off all volunteer forces who could help him gather his petitions. Without your assistance – maybe volunteering for one afternoon, an evening or a weekend – he will never collect the signatures of registered voters required to make the ballot.

David has fought for our country, just as you have been so active in restoring our Republic. Please sign up to volunteer at http://www.BellaviaforNY.com or email David at FireMission@BellaviaforNY.com.

I am calling this Fire Mission Bellavia. We must all respond as we work together to save our nation. There is no more important battle in the next ten days.

Principle. Honor. Integrity. We need more of it in Congress, and here’s your chance to make that happen.

Sincerely,

Gary Berntsen

PS: Please join this effort yourself, but also pass this email along to your grassroots contacts to assure all true Patriots know to ride to the sound of the guns in Western New York!

 

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano hosted a news conference on Monday, March 7th, in which he outlined changes he wants to see made in the existing county regulations to restrain protesters at military funerals.

Mr. Mangano was joined by Gold Star Family members, veterans, Patriot Guard Riders, Tea Party members  and others who support efforts to keep radical cults like the Westboro Baptist Church from piling insult and indignity on military families at the time of their greatest vulnerability.

Press coverage here, here and here.

More pictures here.

In a move eerily reminiscent of the NY 23 fiasco between Doug Hoffman and Dede Scozzafava, the western NY GOP committeemen have selected a pro-abortion RINO to run for the open NY 26 Congressional District.

This is the second time the GOP leaders have ignored the request of the hero Iraq War veteran David Bellavia to run for that seat.

The stage is being set for another three way race in New York with a conservative being pitted against a RINO and a Democrat socialist.

Stay Tuned!

It is outstanding to be able to place the title Congressman before the name of Lt. Col. Allen West!

At his first ‘official’ town hall meeting, Congressman West responds to a question about illegal immigration.

The question was posed by a man who was himself an immigrant, having escaped from Hungary before the Russian invasion of 1955.

Here is a photo of Lt. Col. West and his lovely family as he is being sworn in to Congress.

As an aside, did you know that George Washington’s highest rank before assuming command of the revolutionary forces in 1775 was colonel?  Just saying…

Communism is alive and well in New York.  Like this fool who turns out for all the lefty protests:

Commie protesting Pamela Geller at the Stop the Mosque Rally on September 11, 2010.

For those of us who have faced off against the radical left here for years, it is painfully obvious.  For those who pooh pooh the notion that communism exists, take a lesson from the Russians who may know a thing or two about communism that you don’t:

Now how did this vile and evil ideology get a foothold in the land of capitalism and individual freedom?  Let Bill Whittle take you on a stroll through history:

For the record… Obama often attended the socialist lectures at Cooper Union in New York City during his time at Columbia University.
