West Point Graduation 2011
What: Support Our Military Cadets and Their Families
When: Saturday, May 21st, 7am to 1pm
Where: Highland Falls, NY, Memorial Park
Come celebrate the elimination of Osama bin Laden and show support for our military cadets and their families!
Every year the usual lefty suspects try to lower the morale of our military familes by placing flag draped coffins along the roadway leading into West Point. This year they will be particularly incensed because our military eliminated Osama bin Laden.
Please join us to stage a Support the Troops rally at Memorial Park and give the families of our young men and women a positive experience to remember as their sons and daughters embark upon their military careers.
The early start time is to avoid the traffic congestion of the families arriving to attend the graduation as well as provide us time to set up flags and signs to welcome them and express our support.
Sgt Eddie Ryan, the Marine Corps sniper who was mortally wounded by friendly fire in Iraq in 2005, but recovered by the grace of God and the inner strength of his family and himself, retired from active duty in the United States Marine Corps yesterday.
Former Marine and GOE Dutchess County Coordinator Dennis Maloney sends this after action report:
It was a gray day with a piercing chill at Stewart Airport but the cause of the event brought an inner warmth to all present (about a hundred guests). Two platoons of dress blue clad US Marines stood at attention and then at ease as Sgt Eddie Ryan, USMC, in his dress blue uniform sitting in his wheelchair was retired from active service after 8 years of duty.
The several speakers described how Eddie always wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and be a Marine. They related the several actions in which Eddie participated. It was told how Eddie wanted to be and then became a Marine sniper before his 2nd deployment and how on that fateful day, he received 2 bullet wounds to his head and how 2 of his brother Marines extracted him under fire to safety.
Colonel Hussey (Army), who began his military career with 3 years in the Marine Corps, described how Eddie’s mom and dad flew to Germany to say goodbye to their dying son. Eddie, however refused to oblige and has brought himself back. The Colonel went on to tell Eddie that this wasn’t really a retirement but rather, a new assignment, after all, once a Marine–always a Marine. Eddie’s new assignment is to educate our youth and citizenry about the love and sacrifice of today’s military in procuring for them the peace and prosperity they enjoy. Semper Fi!
A reception was held later at the Fallkirk Country Club outside Highland Mills. Attendees (100+) were treated to a sumptuous buffet lunch provided by Barry Fixler from the proceeds of his book, “Semper Cool.” The speeches given by the the many attendees emphasized the closeness of that band of brothers known as the USMC.

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?
You help me prove that, and I’ll split the royalties with you.
Here’s the video:
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!
