Clinton’s Supporters Honor Their Fellow Veterans At Parades And Ceremonies Across The Country
Hillary Clinton for President ^ | 11/12/2007 | Hillary Clinton for President

Posted on 11/12/2007 5:33:20 PM PST by mdittmar

Throughout the weekend, members of the Clinton campaign’s Veterans and Military Retirees Steering Committee represented Hillary at events around the country. From Arkansas to Washington, committee members honored their fellow veterans by participating in Veterans Day parades, ceremonies and other grass-roots activities. In addition, the campaign continued announcing prominent veterans as members of the National Veterans and Military Retirees Steering Committee. Yesterday, the campaign announced 36 new national co-chairs to its steering committee and unveiled a new video featuring a cross-generation of veterans discussing their support of Hillary Clinton for President. There are more that 1,200 veterans and military retirees who have joined Hillary Clinton's national and state veterans' steering committees.

"I am honored to have the support of our men and women who have served our nation with distinction," said Clinton. "Our veterans have been on the frontlines of defending our democracy, and as President, I will fulfill our commitment to them."

Below is an overview of the activity taking place in various states:

If J.F. Kerry can have his vet contingent so can Hilary.

And who’s this General Jack Yeager?

I'll wait until she says she will make SURE Veteran's votes AND MILITARY ABSENTEE BALLOTS are counted in 2008.

I won't hold my breath on the Absentee Ballots from the Military, however, as the Dem's put lawyers and ACORN in place to assure challenges to military ballots....

The description of their activites is a little vague. Yes they “attended” and “joined” parades and whatnot but what did they do? Burn flags? Burn President Bush in effigy? Hold up placards calling our troops murderers?

At the Veteran’s cemetery where my husband is buried, the Veteran’s Affairs man had a “I miss Bill” sticker on his car today. He was there for the ceremonies.

How disgusting!

We all remember how Chelsea refered to the Generals in the White House and who she got it from. Hillary’s troops fanning out to show the respect she never has, is disgusting.

Truly disgusting. He loathed the military and showed it everyday. They did not want military personnel wearing their uniforms in the White House. They used officers to serve snacks. They both have utter disdain for the warriors who serve our country.

In my experience, I think the only American hated more within the US military is Jane Fonda (for obvious reasons).

The only thing on General Jack Yeager that I could find (other than being a Hillary supporter) is that he was a Kerry supporter, too. No bio on Google.

Fonda was/is a stupid and ignorant woman, who has gotten through life based on good looks and family connections plus a willing ness to go to bed with Directors to achieve her goals.

Hillary is far more scary because if anyone thinks she is stupid is greatly underestimating her and she sure is not getting by on her looks.

Are all her vet supporters of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” persuasion? Just wondering.

Scumbags have only used the military on suicidal missions and to serve tea at the White House. Such sick people.

Unbelievable! This is the woman and her husband who for 8 years hated the military. They even cut the military to bare bones thereby guaranteeing 911 and yet these people roll out the red carpet for her. Astonishing!

..funny how they could find an extensive list of military supporters but can't find any Chinese below minimum wage donors with addresses

One day of posturing (and especially for political gain) does not negate a lifetime of eviscerating our military and giving away highly sensitive military secrets to our enemies.

I used to wonder why politicians only honored dead veterans. In a post earlier today by the last surviving World War infantry man I think I found the answer.

A politician honoring a dead vet is doing the cheapest thing possible. It costs him no future vote nor will it offend his liberal base.

Think about it, three or four hours once or twice a year and you get good press reviews and maybe even a vote or a thousand. That, in the raw political analysis, is a real bargain.

There are exceptions and we who read and post know them well. To them a very big thank you. To the rest …..

BTW, 20 years USAF, three Arc Light Tours, and over a decade in SpecOps kind of educated me in the ways of evil politicians.

With all the new rumors popping up about Hillary
Clinton’s alleged affair with her aide Huma Abedin -
and the possibility that the LA Times is holding a
story about it -

here’s your bumper sticker - Hillary’s not Kosher!

Facts


Huma M Abedin is an aide to the presidential
campaign of Hillary Clinton. Media sources describe
her as
one of Clinton’s closest advisers.

Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan to an Indian
father and Pakistani mother, both Muslims. True
enough. But the facts that Abedin was raised in Saudi
Arabia where her mother has long been a professor of
Islamic studies in Saudi Arabia are of crucial
importance.

Even more troubling than the lesbian thing is Huma’s
Saudi background and the question of whether Huma is
a Saudi agent. Of couse, the lesbian affair could be
linked to Saudi blackmail, considering that Huma was
mentioned in one MSM story to be Her Thighness’
Middle East advisor.

......a top level U.S. Department of Justice
official is saying Hillary Clinton is fooling around
with one
of her top female aides Huma Abedin........“I am close
enough to Hillary and Huma to tell you that this
‘rumor’ is true,” the official says. “It is well known
inside her campaign that Hillary and Huma are an
item. “If you call Hillary’s residence in DC first
thing
in the morning, Huma answers the phone,” the official
continues. “Same thing late at night, and on the road.
It’s a closely guarded secret that Hillary’s inner
circle guards at all costs........”

and finally ...

many tipsters have reminded us of page 42 of Gennifer
Flowers’s 1995 book, Passion and Betrayal. Starting
on that page, Bill Clinton’s ex-flame says that he
very
clearly told her that Hillary is a lesbian:

“There’s something you need to know. I’ve been
hearing tales around town that Hillary is having
another
thing with a woman.” I watched his face to see his
reaction, and couldn’t believe it when he burst out
laughing.I was stunned! I asked him what was so funny.
“Honey,” he said, “she’s probably eaten more p***y
than I
have.”

Bill said he had known for a long time that Hillary
was attracted to women, and it didn’t really bother
him anymore. His first clue came from her lack of
enjoyment of sex with him. She didn’t like to
experiment and insisted on the missionary position
and nothing else. Because she wasn’t enjoying herself;
neither was he. Sex with her became a duty; nothing
more.”

Brigadier General Jack Yeager (ret.), Army National Guard,
West Virginia. .......... ARNG Generals usually have political connections. They get appointed by the Governor. NYS Gov. Cuomo appointed the brother of a Mafia boss.

True. When, oh when are we going to rise up and demand “enough is enough”—physically—with raised clinched fists in their faces, and mean it?

Personally, I couldn’t give a damn if Hillary eats at the “Y” or not. The fact that this Huma’s parents have impeccable Wahabist credentials, Huma spent her childhood in The Magic Kingdom AND she has been in Hillary’s inner circle for over a decade (and seems to be independently wealthy) are all reasons for grave concern.

Even if she isn’t sharing a bed, she presumably knows every intimate detail imaginable about her and her dealings.

For those who know anything about how “agents of influence” operate, it’s an open question as to just who is working for whom now.
