Three weeks ago, I told you about the violent postings of Iraq Veterans Against the War member Evan Knappenberger, who threatened the Gathering of Eagles and advocated my assassination.

The dog days of August have drawn to a close. This is the calm before the gathering political storm. On September 15, the far Left group ANSWER (“Act Now to Stop war and End Racism”) will descend on the nation’s capital to demand what they’ve been demanding for the last six years in the aftermath […]
Combating the moonbat convergence.
As promised, our full video report on The Gathering of Eagles: Many highlights there, but take special note of the face-off at the 6:00 minute mark. As you can see, we spent most of the day covering the march on the Eagles’ side of the fence. Why? Because almost all of the news camera crews […]

An alert reader has informed me that C-SPAN plans to cover tomorrow’s defeatist ANSWER rally, but not the pro-victory Gathering of Eagles event. How does C-SPAN determine its schedule? The C-SPAN networks are committed to televising the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate when they are in session. In addition, C-SPAN covers congressional […]
Thomas P. Evans, in the New York Post: Mention Jane Fonda to any 10 Vietnam veterans, and at least seven of them will have some sort of conniption right on the spot.

The GoE organizers need a head count. Sign in here if you are able to join the event in Washington, D.C. at the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial on Saturday, March 17. Less than 700 people have made a commitment. By contrast, tens of thousands of anti-war zealots are expected. In case you needed any more […]

How many times have you thought to yourself: […]
