    “If the GOP nominates another country-club, cronyist RINO in 2016”

    When did the GOP nominate Romney??? I thought Romney won the nomination by wining through Primary Elections in every state! I thought voters from each state nominated him by giving him their vote in their Primary Election.

    I don’t care who wins the Republican nomination in 2016. Whomever wins gets my vote, even though right now I hope it is Governor Perry. I would NEVER stay home or not vote! To do that would just help Hillary win!

    My prayer is that EVERYONE who cares about our Military and our Country will get out and vote in November and vot for EVERY Republican on their ticket! Yes, even if the Republican candidate is not their “favorite” Republican!

    Andrew Breitbarts words once again:

    “Anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker, and if you’re not in that bunker ‘cause you’re not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you. You’re on the other side.”

    Couldn’t agree with you more!

    Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are opportunity seekers with very little substance as far as I am concerned. They will realize if they run in 2016 that most conservatives have got their number and will give their support to someone with a MUCH better track record for actually getting things done AND telling the truth....like Governor Rick Perry!

    Thank You Chris Cook and thanks to those who have responded to me. This Soldier is going to serve his entire life in prison for defending himself and his Brothers on the battlefield unless we raise our voices in outrage. We appreciate any and all help for him. His mother thanks you with all her heart for any help you send her Son's way!

    Sport, You are correct. All those who voted for Obama and didn't vote at all elected a Commander In Chief who cares nothing about our Military and lest about America!

    It has been very stressful for Derrick's mom and step-father to see the extreme lack of interest or care from ALL the Democrat members of Congress from Maryland, their home state. Derrick's mom even wrote to Obama and Michelle twice, with no reply.

    Now we move to calling on the Republicans!!

    A SGT. DERRICK MILLER UPDATE From Beverly Perlson: Please see email below and spread to your lists. Thanks so much!
    ****************************************

    On June 30th, 2014, Dana Loesch invited me to join her in studio on the Glenn Beck Show to discuss the harsh and horrendous life sentence Sgt Miller is currently serving in Leavenworth for defending himself on a battlefield in Afghanistan. Throughout this war on terror, Dana Loesch has been a relentless supporter of our brave men and women in uniform and her unwavering support of our Troops means the world to them and to me. I am deeply grateful to Dana and her husband, Chris, for this opportunity and I truly believe there is a special place in Soldier Heaven for them both. Below is the link to the show:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIIoMI8hvRA&list=UUI7ouCVOhXh5Sq-IJrpBh7w

    Sgt Derrick Miller served his country through 3 deployments and he did so proudly and willingly. Sgt Miller was a good Soldier who secured many medals and rose to the rank of Sergeant. On his last deployment in Afghanistan, Sgt Miller detained an Afghan man named Atta Mohammed for questioning. As Derrick's unit was surrounded by hostile villagers on all 3 sides, and they had been taking heavy fire over time, the good Soldier Derrick was concerned when Atta Mohammed came from different directions entering their perimeter. Derrick became concerned when Mohammed told him he was there to fix a water pump, no wait, then he was there to fix a generator, and all the while Atta Mohammed telling Derrick “I not Taliban, the Soldiers killed my brother, but I not Taliban.” Well the Good Soldier Derrick noticed Atta Mohammed had no tools. A struggle ensued with a gun and Derrick shot and killed “the Afghan man” as he was only allowed to be referred to at trial.

    I later asked Derrick if he was sorry he shot Atta Mohammed (I only asked because that seems to be the ridiculous question the liberals want answered). Derrick looked me right in the eye and responded “I'm sorry he tried to get my guy so I had to shoot him. I'm sorry about that.”

    Sgt Derrick defended himself and his Brothers on the battlefield that day. When the gun went off, the perimeter was put on high alert and according to Derrick, within 20 minutes the base was attacked. On high alert, our Soldiers had moved out of their regular positions and not one American Soldier lost his life in that attack. Many of the men in Derrick’ platoon believed he saved their lives that day.

    I refer you to Sgt Miller's website, http://www.freederrickmiller.org/ for further details. With two witnesses who changed their stories and no forensics done on the gun nor the body, Derrick was convicted of a life sentence with a chance of parole in 10 years. He can never prove his story because all the evidence is destroyed.

    Sgt Derrick Miller defended himself on this lopsided battlefield where winning hearts and minds have cost precious lives and limbs and where the insane rules of engagement and catch and release policies have afforded all the advantages to this brutal enemy we are fighting. This is a battlefield that has left our Sons victims in a lose lose situation! Derrick asked me to ask the representatives up on hill, “would they rather it would have been him who was killed?!”

    Now as this brave American Son of ours sits locked up in Leavenworth with other Soldiers charged for crimes on this battlefield, this President is releasing terrorist from Gitmo right and left. Why, I had a rep for Donna Edwards, Chris Schloesser, boldly tell us in a meeting that the goal of this administration is to close Gitmo!! And that door to Gitmo has been swinging open constantly since this President has been elected. And he isn't just releasing terrorists that will go back to their families, oh no, they will head right back to the battlefield to kill and maim more of our precious Sons. The reckless release of the savage Ali Musa DaqDuq by this administration was unconscionable. DaqDuq killed 5 of our Soldiers but before he killed them he tortured 4 of them and then dumped their precious bodies on the side of a road. I guarantee he isn't going home to his mother or family, he is right back on the battlefield and God help and watch over our Soldiers! His release by this administration is an outrage and a slap in the face to every Warrior who has fought and died in this war.

    I can guarantee you this, when Derrick is released, he will return home to his two daughters and family and he will get a job and live his life in peace.

    What have the mothers of these terrorists had to do to secure their release of their sons? Nothing! Not a damn thing! They have accrued no legal fees to bring their Sons home. No, our President just opens that door to Gitmo and sets their terrorist's sons free, yet he keeps our American Sons locked up!!!

    What does Sgt Derrick Miller's mother do to try and secure the release of her son, because this President never talks about freeing America's Sons. Renee, Derrick's mother, bakes cupcakes all week and sells them at her Church socials so that she can try and visit her son and get him the legal help he so desperately needs and deserves. This wonder woman who raised a Warrior who proudly wore the uniform of this great country will be baking cupcakes for a long time as he is now serving his third year at Leavenworth.

    Please visit: www.freederrickmiller.org and hit the donate button on Renee's website for traveling expenses. It has been one year since Derrick has seen his family and his beautiful litle girls so any donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    I have promised Sgt Miller and his mother that I won't stop until Derrick is home where he belongs. We will be heading up to the hill in September for more meetings with representatives and we could sure use your help and support by ringing those phones up there. I was told by a great Warrior I love and respect that the reason Michael Behenna walks free today is because of the constant pressure we Americans generated on his behalf. We can do this again and the time has come for our Sons to be treated with the same courtesy and consideration as this President affords the terrorists and their families. But that will not happen without your help! We need you to ring those phones up there and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, LET OUR SONS GO HOME!

    If you will, please call your Congressmen and Senators and ask them to help us secure a reduction in this cruel life sentence Derrick is serving, or better yet, ask them to release Derrick and all our Soldiers of the Leavenworth 10 who are still serving. What is good enough for the terrorists should damn well be good enough for America's Sons!!! This President has given as a reason to release these dangerous terrorists that the wars are winding down. SO, he needs to extend the same courtesy to our Sons as he does to the terrorists and open that door to Leavenworth and let our Sons of the L10 go home!!!

    http://l10freedomride.com/Letters.html

    If you will, please forward this to all your lists and Twitter using the hashtag #FreeDerrickMiller. This is the beginning of an all out effort to Free Derrick Miller and we hope you will join us. We need daily calls, letters, emails, all you radio folks out there, please invite Renee on your show and give her the opportunity to help her get her Son's sentence reduced and/or to help her secure her Sons’ release. All you journalists, please step up and write about Derrick's case. I am so very grateful to Marinka Peschmann for her excellent article about Sgt Derrick Miller.

    She is another tireless supporter of our Troops and with her help, and Dana's, and all of you Patriots out there, we can and we will make great strides on behalf of the mothers of this country who raised Warriors Sons and now need and deserve to have their Sons come home!

    The motto of The Band of Mothers is “Warriors Come From Warriors”. Well, it is time for the warrior moms in this great country to kick it into full gear and fight for our warrior Sons!

    With A Mother's Heart, Thank You!

    On May 31st, 2014, this President invited the parents of Bowe Bergdahl to the Rose Garden at the White House and among other things, he said this:

    “The United States of America does not ever leave our men and women in uniform behind.”

    https://www.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=video+bowe+bergdahl+parents+in+rose+garden+with+obama&ei=UTF-8&hspart=att&hsimp=yhs-att_001&type=sbc_dial

    Let's look at that statement again:

    “The United States of America does not ever leave our men and women in uniform behind.”

    This president brought home a Soldier who walked away from his Brothers on the battlefield and walked right toward the enemy. And for this Soldier the Campaigner-in-Chief traded 5 of the most horrendous terrorists and then held a press conference at the White House welcoming home this deserting Soldier.

    This president went to a lot of trouble and has put all Americans at risk to bring Bowe Bergdahl home but HAS NOT LIFTED ONE FINGER TO BRING HOME A DECORATED MARINE BEING HELD IN A MEXICAN PRISON!

    Under this president, The United States DOES leave our men and women in uniform behind. Many of us will never forgive and never forget how he went to bed and attended one of his fundraisers while two of our Warrior Sons were fighting with all their hearts in Benghazi! We didn't have much chance to help our Sons in Benghazi but we do have a chance to help this decorated Marine chained to a bed like an animal!!!

    Please call the White House...202-456-1414. We need to ring the phone off the wall up there. I believe that if every single person who supports our Troops would keep calling the White House and their reps, the pressure from the people will bring this Marine home. He isn't home yet because Obama and his administration haven't felt any any pressure up there!

    Please make calls all week, everyday, on behalf of Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi. Imagine if he was your son! Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi served two tours to protect us all, now he desperately needs our help! I can only imagine how our Troops on the battlefield are processing this. The release of a Soldier who deserts his Brothers on the battlefield is celebrated as some kind of hero at the White House Rose Garden while a decorated Marine who served two tours and stood by his Brothers is left chained to a bed in a Mexican prison.

    This is the most dangerous time in the history of our country. My deepest apologizes to our Troops and our Veterans for the most disgraceful treatment they have had to endure under this reckless and cowardly president and his cavalier administration. November can't come too soon!

    Dear Maryland Freepers AND Freepers Everywhere, Please read all below and spread throughout your state. As Bev Perlson (a Freeper) says, Enough is Enough!! Sorry her emails are not coming through in their original format with spaces between paragraphs. Don't know why. Thanks! Jean

    Below are two emails I sent to the Legislative Director for Congresswoman Donna Edwards of Maryland regarding Sgt Derrick Miller. As you all know from my email out to you this week, Sgt. Derrick Miller is sitting in Leavenworth serving a life sentence for defending himself and his brothers on the lopsided battlefield of Afghanistan. This is a follow-up to that email.

    On April 29th of this year, Derrick Miller’s mother, his stepdad and myself met with several Maryland legislators. Our “ASK” was that these legislators form a Maryland delegation in support of a reduction in the outrageous life sentence that this 3 time deployed Soldier received and to pen a letter to President Obama and the Secretary of the Army asking for that reduction.

    One of the meetings was with Chris Schloesser, the legislative director for Congresswoman Donna Edwards. Derrick’s mother was so encouraged when we left his office because Mr. Schloesser informed us that his brother was the former commanding general of the 101st Airborne and he was going to talk with him and see what could be done to help Derrick. God Bless Derrick’s mother because she was so happy when we parted that day, she truly believed all these Maryland reps were going to help her and her son. Me, I was leery and when you read the email below you will understand why I felt that way. When I got home, I did check out Mr. Schloesser’s claim of his brother’s connection to the 101st and as you can see, that is the case: http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_J._Schloesser (see personal history)
    Well, notice the dates of the emails below. And notice in my subject line above, I indicate this was my 2nd request for a reply from Mr. Schloesser. Derrick’s mother nor I have heard a word from Mr. Schloesser since our meeting on April 29th.

    I am sharing these emails because quite frankly, I cannot stand the heartbreak that this mother is going through. For the first time since this nightmare began for Derrick and his family, she was so happy anfter these meetings and so hopeful that she was truly on her way to getting justice for her Son, because these Maryland reps told her they were going to do everything they could to help her. Since then, it has been one pathetic excuse after another, or silence! I wouldn’t be surprised if suddenly we are told my emails below to Schloesser are lost due to a computer crash!

    Please note, these emails did not come back to me so they were received! Please, I implore you to pick up your phones today and contact Mr. Schloesser and Congresswoman Edwards office and ask him when he is going to keep his word and help Sgt. Miller’s mother. And please forward this email to all your lists! If you twitter, please use #FreeDerrickMiller and follow @katieomalley on Twitter and RETWEET her tweets!

    Also, yesterday Marinka Peschmann participated in a radio interview on the Sam Sorbo show regarding Sgt Miller. Yours truly called in to the show: http://www.marinkapeschmann.com/2014/06/24/media-alert-sam-sorbo-show-at-trn-1130-am-et/

    Enough is Enough! Obama and his administration have been releasing the worst of the worst terrorists since his election (and as you’ll see below because as one Dem rep stated because “We’re Trying To Close Gitmo!”) and as we just learned recently, they now are releasing onto our streets murdering illegals! Yet they keep our Sons locked up in Leavenworth for actions on their terrorist appeasing battlefield! With all the dangerous and reckless actions by Obama, the leading Democrat of his party, Senator Harry Reid announced recently he is going to take a stand and boycott Redskin games if their name isn’t changed??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    All Americans should be outraged! As the late GREAT Patriot Andrew Breitbart warned us, racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.

    Please help us get our Sons in Leavenworth home to their families. What is good enough for terrorists and murdering illegals, it damn well should be good enough for America’s Sons who stepped up to the plate to defend us against the very terrorists Obama and his party are releasing!!!!!

    The emails to Schloesser are below.

    With A Mother’s Heart, I thank you for your help and your support of our Sons in Leavenworth who willingly risked their lives to keep you safe,

    Mr. Schloesser, I don’t understand why you promised Derrick’s mother that you would talk with your brother regarding Derrick’s case, and then report back to her. You seemed sincere in your promise and you may not think about this, but the days in Leavenworth drag on for a Soldier who unjustly received a life sentence and they drag on longer for their families.
    In our meeting, I asked what you had to say to this mother whose son is unjustly serving a life sentence for defending himself on this battlefield as this administration continues to release terrorists who have murdered our American Sons. Your reply was stern and adamant when you said “BUT WE’RE TRYING TO CLOSE GITMO!!!”
    Based on your answer, I understand then that you are a part of the administration that is trying to secure the release of terrorists who murdered our Sons so that Gitmo can be closed. As the mother of a Son who served 4 deployments in this war, just thought you might want to know that there doesn’t seem to be much concern in your administration about the future safely of Americans by releasing these murderers.
    You might want to view this poll as there is an election coming and closing Gitmo doesn’t seem to be a favorable position among Americans: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/keep-it-open_795066.html

    You have not written to Derrick’s mother since our meeting. There seems to be questioning going on among terrorists in Gitmo by this administration as to what they want to do when they are released. Well just thought you might want to know what Derrick wants to do. Derrick wants to go back to Maryland, find a job and raise his daughters. This administration will have no worries that Derrick would return to this lopsided battlefield.
    Once again, I am reaching out in hopes that you will reply to Mrs. Myers. She raised a brave Warrior who provided you, your family and your colleagues the safety that you enjoy everyday. And I hope you remember, Derrick’s role over there was to defend America. We look forward to your reply.

    Mrs. Myers has emailed you twice with no response.
    Kindly please respond to both of us what follow-up you have since our meeting on the 29th of April.
    I’m sure you can understand how very difficult it is for Derrick’s mother when she does not get any response from you and that only comes from your assurance to her that you would follow-up and be in touch.

Please spread this info at the link and listen in if you can. Also, Please keep this thread going if you can. Maryland Freepers who know me and my sweetheart personally will certainly help spread for calls to be made. Remember there are ways for patriots from outside Maryland to call members of Congress on their cell phone and just give a Maryland zip code.

    Dear Freepers Everywhere,
    Your help is needed ASAP, and I beg you to please read all the info below and get as many patriots you can to make phone calls to members of Congress from your state. It will take some time to read all the information below, but certainly won't take much time to make a few phone calls. And Especially to the members of Congress from the State of Maryland listed below. We MUST stand up for our heroes! Thank you so very much!

    *****************************************

    The level of disrespect from this administration towards our Veterans and our brave men and women of the United States Military has reached such level of disgrace that it is extremely difficult to remain civil in my remarks. I have held my tongue for a long time but can no longer remain silent.

    For a long time, I reached out to all on my email list many times asking for your help for the outrageous and cruel treatment our Veterans have been suffering under the mis-management of the incompetent senior executives at the VA, who have received outrageous bonuses for their criminal conduct in covering up the waiting lists resulting in the deaths of our most noble Veterans.
    Again, I thank Florida Congressman Jeff Miller for his relentless persistence in his attempts to hold the VA accountable in the deaths of our precious Veterans and much thanks to Concerned Veterans For America for all their hard work. BUT most of all, I thank all of you on this email list who made tons of calls to keep the pressure on.

    I recently asked all of you Patriots on this email list to make calls on behalf of Marine Sgt..Andrew Tahmooressi, who is being held in chains in a Mexican jail for making a wrong turn near the border. I know your calls and your concern for this Marine Son of ours is making a difference and I thank you all for the pressure you are putting on your representatives.

    As this administration continues to release the worst of the worst terrorists (remember DaqDuq, he murdered 5 American Sons but before he murdered them, he tortured them and dumped their precious bodies on the side of the road!), our Sons continue to stay locked up in Leavenworth. DaqDuq is out running around and this administration has no idea where he but I have no doubt he has returned to the battlefield to kill and maim more of our Sons. Obama and his administration continue to release terrorists out of Gitmo with the blood of Americans on their hands. There are now only 149 terrorists left in Gitmo.

    The latest reckless and dangerous act by Obama and his “dudes” exchanged 5 of the worst butchers from GITMO for Bowe Bergdahl, who walked away from his Brothers on the battlefield and walked toward the enemy! The level of danger he is putting our Troops, and for that matter, all American is unconscionable. The terrorist released out of Camp Bucca told the Commander in charge “I'll see you in New York.” Obama and his dudes have unleashed upon our Troops and all Americans butchering terrorists who live by their murdering mantra “Death To America, Death To Israel!”

    The latest outrage is the capture of the alleged ringleader who led the slaughter of our 4 American Sons in Benghazi. The story by Obama and his “dudes and dudettes is that he is being held on a ship for interrogation, rather than being transferred to Gitmo. We must be nice to these little butchers, you know, so I figure he is being served tea and crumpets and whatever else he might fancy. What is most maddening is that he will reach our shores, be read his Miranda rights and tried in a civilian court of law!!! All this crap going on under this administration while our American Sons continue to sit in Leavenworth and let me tell you, I've been there, there is no soccer field at Leavenworth and there were no Miranda rights and there was no civilian courts for them. AND there doesn't seem to be one ounce of concern from this administration for their rights or their welfare. They have locked the door to Leavenworth and it has only recently swung open once, for lst Lt Michael Behenna. And that happened because of you wonderful Patriots who made calls relentlessly and put the pressure on.

    AND Now I'm asking for your help for another Soldier, Sgt Derrick Miller, sitting in Leavenworth serving a life sentence for defending himself and protecting his men on this appeasing and apologizing battlefield of Afghanistan. This is a battlefield where all the rights are afforded to the terrorists and God forbid if one of our Sons, in his defense and defense of his Brothers, shoots and kills the enemy. For that, Sgt Derrick Miller was charged with pre-meditated murder and given a life sentence. Derrick's case is most troubling and if Derrick's case were tried in a civilian court, it would be thrown out because all the forensic evidence was destroyed! Further, one witness was promised immunity if he changed his statement or his other choice was to be charged as an accessory to murder. The other witness, the interpreter, was offered $630 a month and before trial, one of the officers brought him to Chicago to see if he would like living here, and he was promised a VISA!

    I recently accompanied Derrick Miller's mother, Renee Myers, up to the hill for appointments I had arranged with Democrat representatives from Maryland. Derrick and his mother are from Maryland . Trust me when I say this, these were extremely difficult appointments. All we asked each for was that they write a letter, as a Maryland Delegation, in support of a reduction in Derrick's sentence. What we got were promises that they would look into his case and get back to us. One legislative Director actually told me quite sternly when I asked what they had to say to this mother whose son continues to sit in Leavenworth as this administration releases terrorists right and left with the blood of American Soldiers on their hands, his response was “BUT WE'RE TRYING TO CLOSE GITMO!!!”

    Folks, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!! Why do American mothers have to hire lawyers and accrue enormous legal fees in their attempt to get their sons released from Leavenworth yet the terrorist's mothers never spend a dime and their sons go home?!! The time has come that we as Americans demand that our Sons be released. Obama’s argument now is they are releasing terrorists because the war is ending. Well then RELEASE OUR SONS FROM LEAVENWORTH NOW!!!!!

    We need your help and we need that pressure you are all so good at applying!!! Please make calls today on behalf of Sgt Derrick Miller and ask the two Congressman below to advocate for his release. This is an election year and they are both legislatures from Maryland. Derrick and his mother live in Congressman Van Hollen’s district and he did nothing to help Derrick's mother except to send her a website link for further legal help, even though one of his point people and former jag told Renee there is evidence of “undue command influence in Derrick's case. The other Congressman we ask that you call is Elijah Cummings as we were told he has a lot of pull up there.

    And Lastly, if you will, please call Congressman Charlie Rangel, from New York, as he is the only Congressman who has written a letter in support of Derrick. I reached out to him last year as he is a Veteran. He wrote to General Ordinero requesting Derrick receive a clemency hearing, and in his letter he stated, “due to the complicated circumstances of Sgt Miller's case and the extreme nature of war.” Derrick did receive one clemency hearing, thanks to Charlie Rangel!

    Congressman Chris Van Hollen.....Phone: (202) 225-5341
    Congressman Elijah Cummings.....Phone: (202) 225-4741
    Congressman Charlie Rangel........Phone: (202) 225-4365

    Please forward this to everyone on your lists.

    From Gold Star Dad Kirk Morris

    By virtue of having Honorably served our country we are calling all Veterans, Active Duty, Medically Retired, or Reservist fisherman.... from any and all years of service... (am I all inclusive enough?)

    The reason I am writing you all is this. The 10th Annual Heroes Of Freedom Fishing Derby https://www.facebook.com/PFCGeoffreyMorrisMemorialFishingTournamentis on Sunday the 22nd of June 2014. The point for the whole day is to give veterans, active duty, reservists, and our wounded an opportunity for a day on the Big Lake for fun, relaxation and camaraderie.

    The event is open to the first 100 Veterans that complete the attached Registration form.

    Please note that precedence will be given to:
    1) WIA / Purple Heart Veterans
    2) VA Patients
    3) Active/Reservists
    4) retired military.

    We can accommodate wheelchairs or other infirmaries ... just need to let us know what assistance you might need.

    Registration is easier this year... We have partnered with Oscar Mike a 100% VETERAN OWNED apparel company whose Mission is to keep you “On the Move” in every aspect of life. The term “Oscar Mike” comes from military radio jargon used on the front lines. It translates to “On the Move”.... being Oscar Mike means being active, staying positive and living life to its absolute fullest.

    Online Registration form can be found by clicking here http://www.oscarmike.org/event/2014-morris-memorial-fishing-derby which will re-direct you to the Oscar Mike website. Complete the form and you will be sent additional information and schedule of events.

    The 10th Annual PFC Geoffrey Morris Memorial Fishing Tournament is just three
    weeks away. The competitive fishing is 20th and 21st of June, an enormously fun time. All events are held at North Point Marina which is located in Winthrop Harbor, IL (WI / IL State Lines where land meets Lake Michigan). You are more than welcome to visit and partake in these
    festivities as well.

    For you that don't know what that is? Many of the Captains that fished the Pro and Am Divisions of the Morris Memorial Fishing Tournament the previous days (and they are some of the best Salmon Fishing Captains on Lake Michigan) stay over to take you past and present Members of our Military out for a day of Salmon Fishing.. AT NO COST TO YOU. We serve farm fresh breakfast prepared on site by Jones Dairy Farm at 0700 - 0900, leave Winthrop Harbor at 0900 and return mid afternoon to a wonderful banquet sponsored by the USO, Wounded Heroes Foundation, MillerCoors and Skipper Buds.

    No need to bring rods, reels or any tackle, boats, food will all be supplied for you. What I do need is a confirmation from you as to your desire to attend and fish with us.

    As a side note.... newspapers and press are banned from this event and have been banned since the inaugural year's event,10 years ago.

    Feel free to pass this email around to your wounded veterans that you think might be interested in fishing with us... or contact me via email, cell phone, fax or land line..... all are listed below... Look forward to fishing with you all.

    Thank you, OneHun, for posting the message that has been sent out over and over for months! This “American Spring” event would get great coverage from the Liberal Media to show a bunch of “Conservative Nut-Cases” and the DEMS would love to see it! I call this group the “American Spring Occupy DC” group because they will break laws, just like the Occupy DC folks did.

    And here's how:
    They plan to stay in DC (without permits) as long as it takes to remove members of Congress and the Obama Administration from office. (oh sure, like that will happen!)

    And the group is to Be prepared to die if necessary. (Call that peaceful???....or giving Obama the perfect reason to call out the National Guard???)

    TO ALL OF YOU WHO PLAN TO GO TO DC THIS FRIDAY:

    Here is a REALLY GOOD REASON to go to DC for Memorial Day Weekend instead. Go to DC and honor ALL our Veterans!

    It is disgraceful and a slap in the face to all military families that the Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America allows a terrorist to go free, a terrorist who killed 5 American Sons and before he killed them, he tortured 4 of them and dumped their precious bodies on the side of the road! It is disgraceful that the Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America continually releases terrorists who continue to return to the battlefield to kill and maim our Brave Warriors! Now he's busy releasing drug dealers who sell drugs to our children!!

    AND THE DOORS OF LEAVENWORTH STAY SLAMMED SHUT ON OUR SONS WHO WILLINGLY RISKED THEIR LIVES TO FIGHT THE VERY ENEMY THIS ADMINISTRATION APPEASES, CODDLES AND RELEASES TO KILL AND MAIM OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN!!!!!!

    I ask you to please call your Senators and Congressmen and tell them it is an outrage that our Sons in Leavenworth continue to stay locked up while this Commander-in-Chief releases terrorists and now pardons drug dealers!!! Please raise your voices in outrage and demand that our Sons in Leavenworth be returned to their families. What is good enough for the terrorists should damn well be good enough for our Sons!

    Thank you for helping to let others know! In my travels I find so many Americans who have no idea that we have soldiers in Leavenworth for killing Terrorists while known Terrorists are released from GITMO to go back to killing more of our troops!

    Doing my MD ping here to help inform more Maryland folks about Sgt Derrick Miller. Re-posting the section below from Beverly Perlson’s email:

    I am in the process of setting appointments with Maryland Congressman as that is where Derrick and his mother are from. In fact, Derrick's mom lives in Chris Van Hollen’s district and he has agreed to meet with us for 20 minutes on April 29th. Until then, please call your Congressman and Senators and ask them to support Clemency for Derrick. Folks, if this case were held in civilian court, with the destruction of the evidence in this case, I believe the conviction would be thrown out. Please help us fight for Derrick and for that matter all the guys in Leavenworth. I think the best argument for all our Sons is that since Obama keeps releasing terrorists, it is only right that he release our Sons too. What is good enough for the terrorists, should be good enough for our Sons!

    You can also support Derrick by sending him letters, money orders (he has two daughters he loves dearly), books...please visit http://www.derrickmiller.org/support/ to see what you can do to help him.

    All you radio folks out there, I'm sure Derrick Miller's mom would appreciate your support and would be happy to tell her Son's story on your radio show. And as a last resort, you can write a letter to the President, let him know that if he had a Son, he would look like Derrick Miller! Ask for Clemency for this good Soldier who did what he was taught to do, protect his Brothers, and for that he was given a life sentence!

    On Tuesday, April 15, 2014: From Defend Michael

    To All My Supporters, Sweet Freedom - a right that should never be taken for granted! It has been one month since I was released from prison and I have savored every moment of my freedom from behind those iron bars. Everything about life on the outside is so much more wonderful than I even imagined it would be. For the past four weeks I have taken each day as a gift to be cherished – spending it with my family and friends and doing the things I want to do when I want to do them. For the first sixty days of my parole I am required to live at my parent’s house. This is a good thing because it allows me to catch up on my mother’s home cooking which I receive in fair trade for working her long neglected flower beds. Every day I go to the stables to ride a horse named Sue who is as stubborn as Shannon is (Sue has bucked me off twice, but I’m convinced I’m growing on her) and have even put in time fishing on the river. I continue to read and to soak up the blessings of my life. At the end of the month I will participate in a 3-day cow calf course in Shawnee where I will get my first taste of life as a rancher. The only thing that taints my newfound joy is when I think about those I left behind at Fort Leavenworth. In prison this small group of men and I became a band of brothers who had all experienced war in its most real form. These honorable men fought for their country and did not deserve what they were given for their service. I was fortunate to have the support structure that I had or I would still be in prison to this very day. I humbly ask that you give the same support to them that you gave to me. When I was behind bars my favorite time of day was without exception when the mail was delivered to my cell. I remember receiving cards and letters from you and the encouragement I felt knowing that I was not forgotten. It transformed despair into hope. These are good men whom I got to know personally and I vouch for every one of them. If not for the untenable positions put upon them in the heat of battle they would never have seen the inside of a prison. They need your prayers, your cards, your letters, magazines and books, and your donations for their legal fight for freedom against a military justice system that is short on justice and long on political correctness. As a convicted felon I am not allowed to contact any of these men and so I ask that you do so for me. They are each a cause worth fighting for. The stories of John Hatley, Joseph Mayo, Michael Leahy, Derrick Miller, Cory Clagett, Michael Williams, and Clint Lorance can be found on the website http://www.click.icptrack.com/icp/relay.php?r=61901338&msgid=688286&act=K24B&c=515316&destination=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.L10freedomride.com. I saw a video recently where an elderly man said, “You think this is just another day in your life? It's not just another day. It's the one day that is given to you today. It's given to you. It's a gift. It's the only gift that you have right now, and the only appropriate response is gratefulness. If you do nothing else but to cultivate that response to the great gift that this unique day is, if you learn to respond as if it were the first day in your life and the very last day, then you will have spent this day very well.” I am trying to live my life like that – where I see each day as a gift of freedom and where my only response to that gift is gratitude. To each one of you I want to express my deepest gratitude for giving me this incredible gift through your countless acts of kindness and support. Praise God Almighty, I Am Free At Last! Respectfully, Michael Behenna
