I have reviewed the Political Action Committee (PAC) Board of Directors’ response to our request to rescind this year’s Congressional endorsements. I disagree with their assessment.

It is now evident to most of the VFW leadership, both National and especially the departments, that the VFW has been subjected to extreme negative publicity throughout the nation, and the recent endorsement decisions have, in fact, harmed the VFW’s reputation and future ability to fulfill our mission.

I cannot let this erosion of public support for our great organization continue. The apparent lack of the committee to address these concerns will lead to a proposal by me, as Commander-in-Chief, to amend the by-laws at the 112th National Convention for the purpose of dissolving the PAC. Meanwhile, under the authority granted to me as Commander-in-Chief in section 619 of the VFW National By-Laws and under section 620 of the Manual of Procedure, I am withdrawing all PAC appointments effective October 15, 2010.

Accordingly, I’m asking the council for a vote of “no confidence” in the VFW PAC as indicated on the enclosed ballot.

To: National Council of Administration
From: Richard L. Eubank, Commander-in-Chief
Date: October 14, 2010

YES! Praise the Lord!!! I sure hope Fiorina uses this in her ads against the ghastly Boxer. In fact, they should have the ads on the air by this evening.

Awesome. Like termites, liberals work tireless to undermine once solid foundations of organizational structures. Let’s hope the dissolution of this PAC results in these lefties losing their jobs.

McCain lambasted Boxer for her actions against our military. It’s past time for Carly to close the deal and go after Boxer big time.

During the Angle / Reid debate:
REID: I've been endorsed by the largest military organization in the country, the Vet'rans of Foreign Wars.
Of course, that was the VFW-PAC, not the larger organization...

After Boxer’s disrespect to the General testifying before the Senate, the VFW had absolutely no business endorsing this witch. Shame on them.

From what I’ve read of some politicians supported by the PAC I think this is a good thing. It’s almost as if some leftists have infiltrated the PAC.

Thanks for the ping.

This is just another example of a group — like the NRA — endorsing Dems so toxic that just reading their names will give you conjunctivitis. Traitors have quietly infiltrated many conservative national organizations. They need to be ripped-out.

The lesson learned here is to never appease socialists because you fear that getting their support is the only way to survive.

Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, October 18, 2010, 12:33 PM

Barbara Boxer is one fo the Code Pink 4 who signed letters for Code Pink activists so they could travel to the Iraqi border to assist extremists during the War in Iraq.

BlackFive is reporting today that the Commander in Chief of the VFW Richard Eubank has dissolved the VFW-Pac after it endorsed Barbara Boxer and a group of far left America-hating liberals.

Leftist continue to take over conservative institutions. They are but a handful of the populace but they do this all the time. That is because these “people” lie about who they are and what they stand for until they get to the position they were after. Then the leftist commie claws come out.

We on the right don’t have disingenuous people who will behave in such a reprehensible way. We don’t have rightist trolls who invade leftist organizations. Every conservative institution needs to take extreme steps to block and purge all leftists from positions of importance in their ranks.

I'm reading Reagan's biography, I never realized how hollywood became so socialistic. They would infiltrate organizations and unions and turn them to the left.

Too Late.

The below message was just transmitted on the National VFW website.

“Cancel my membership (just renewed) in VFW Post 2562, Department of Maryland, immediately. I will not be a part of any organization which supports never-been-anywhere-never-done-anything obnoxious housecats like Ron Klein over combat-tested veterans like Allen West. I have no interest in talking to anyone about this. The organization has become an embarrassment and a laughingstock.”

Many churches have been under the same assault. It is up to leaders in the churches to screen people from positions that speak for the church. If the leaders have become corrupt or the positions compromised, the members of the churches need to demand they be replaced or withhold funds and/or walk away.
