News Release
An Ad Hoc Committee of Veterans

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 10, 2005

Contact: Lou Priebe (priebe@erols.com) (703) 569-0946

"Un-augural” Reception To Honor Veterans Who Helped Defeat John Kerry’s Election Bid

…At the National Press Club on Jan. 20

(Washington, DC, January 20) Leaders of prominent “527” military service veterans groups, film producers and authors who made substantial contributions to the veterans revolt against Senator John Kerry’s 2004 Presidential bid will be honored by their supporters at a tongue-in-cheek “Un-augural” reception at the National Press Club on January 20, 2004. The event will celebrate the absence of Senator Kerry from the Inauguration Day proceedings, most particularly the swearing-in ceremony.

Among those receiving special awards will be:

Swift Vets & POWs for Truth
Vietnam Vets for the Truth
Authors of the best-selling book Unfit to Command
Creators of the documentary film Stolen Honor

U.S. Army Infantry veteran Lou Priebe, who is helping coordinate the reception’s arrangements, said, “These courageous advocacy groups and individuals richly deserve the recognition which they will receive from their many friends who are profoundly grateful for their invaluable service during the 2004 Presidential election. These staunch men and women made extremely important contributions in helping tell the truth about Kerry’s actual record during and after the Vietnam War and about his lack of fitness to serve as America’s Commander-in-Chief. We’re celebrating the fact that Kerry is not being inaugurated on January 20 and honoring the exemplary people who helped make his absence from the historic day’s ceremonies a reality!”

The reception will begin at 11:00 am in the First Amendment Room of the National Press Club, overlooking the Inaugural Parade route at the intersection of 14th & F Streets, NW.

This event is not a part of the official 2005 Presidential Inauguration.

Well, you wouldn't anyway, but this isn't primarily a media event -- it's a chance to get together and say thanks to some of the folks who planted themselves between Kerry and the Oval Office and refused to get out of the way.

Was listening to a local liberal radio jock yesterday on the way home and he mentioned some program that the libs have called "Not One Damn Dime". Apparently they have some national movement to disrupt the economy by not spending any money on Inauguration Day. Anyone else here about this?

Great job! It seems the least we can do.

This will drive those leftists who are petitioning to have Al Gore assume the title at least of "President".

I sure do remember! Watched it on CSPAN-2 - full program.

Most memorable to me:

"We resent very deeply the false war crimes charges he made coming back from Vietnam in 1971 and repeated in the book "Tour of Duty." We think those cast an aspersion on all those living and dead, from our unit and other units in Vietnam. We think that he knew he was lying when he made the charges, and we think that they're unsupportable. We intend to bring the truth about that to the American people.

We believe, based on our experience with him, that he is totally unfit to be the Commander-in-Chief."

-- John O'Neill, spokesman, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth

+++AND+++

"My name is Steve Gardner. I served in 1966 and 1967 on my first tour of duty in Vietnam on Swift boats, and I did my second tour in '68 and '69, involved with John Kerry in the last 2 1/2 months of my tour. The John Kerry that I know is not the John Kerry that everybody else is portraying. I served alongside him and behind him, five feet away from him in a gun tub, and watched as he made indecisive moves with our boat, put our boats in jeopardy, put our crews in jeopardy... if a man like that can't handle that 6-man crew boat, how can you expect him to be our Commander-in-Chief?"

Do we have some kind of "honorable mention" award? I know of one person, at least, who deserves that.

68-69tonkingulfyachtclub.

He did a tremendous amount of work at the Free Republic in bringing the misdeeds and lies of JFKerry to light. He, I believe, continues this campaign even today!

I'm not saying he did more than anybody, but he put his heart and soul, every day and on more than one thread, in to making sure that the truth was not hidden.

I'd certainly second that.

This particular event is being organized outside FR, however...

Guests can come and go as they like. There'll be a big screen TV inside, along with a buffet and a nearby cash bar. You can amble downstairs to view the Inaugural events and smile sweetly at the ANSWER commies, then return to the warmth of the First Amendment room at any time between 11am and 4pm.

Mr. S, thanks for the ping.

Sounds like a great event, but many of us had already planned to go to the parade route itself per below quoted thread. By populating that area, that is one less area for the leftists.

Hope that we can have thousands of FReepers, some going to the buffet with Jim Robinson at the National Press Club, others going to the swearing in, and still others going to the parade route per below thread.

ANNOUNCEMENT: D.C. CHAPTER 'SAFE HAVEN' DEMONSTRATION ZONES FOR BUSH INAUGURAL PARADE ROUTE
D.C. Chapter ^ | Wednesday, January 5, 2005 | Kristinn

Posted on 01/05/2005 8:10:01 PM PST by kristinn

The D.C. Chapter of Free Republic has obtained a demonstration permit from the U.S. Park Service for two places along the Inaugural Parade route for January 20.

They are not what we applied for. However, we will try to make do with what has been offered us.

The two places are close together, but apart. One is a 141-foot-long stretch on the north side of the 600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W. (18 feet deep, total 2658 sq. ft.) The other is a section of sidewalk at 7th Street and Indiana, Avenue, N.W. (11,921 sq. ft.)

Our main purpose in gathering there is to provide a 'safe haven' from violent left wing and liberal protesters for conservatives and other supporters of President Bush.

Being that it is expected that tens of thousands of anti-American protesters will be swarming the parade route, we are calling our areas the American Sectors.

While we are trying to establish an area free from left wing violence, no guarantee can be made of absolute safety. But we will work with law enforcement officers to let them know that we expect to be able to show our support for the President in peace and safety.

Our permit for the American Sectors runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Those of you who do not plan on going to the swearing in ceremony at the Capitol are encouraged to come to the American Sectors early and make the day of it. As far as we know, the parade route will be open to spectators and demonstrators sometime in the morning. Once the screening points open up, it will be a competition with the anti-American protesters to fill the public space along the parade route. We expect to have our hands full maintaining the integrity of the American Sectors. Your help early in the day would be appreciated. [emphasis added]
