Vets for Freedom, Tom Manion

If you scroll down, you'll find the story about the important effort by the Pete Hegseth and his "Vets for Freedom" to derail the candidacy of political elitist Barack H. Obama. Please take a look and support the Vets for Freedom. It's critical that the ad also run in Pennsylvania, and the Vets need our support to make that happen. Please go to: to see how you can help.

Michelle: They can write all the "bring-us-together" speeches they want for Michelle Obama. But she will always be the angry woman in her 40s who "for the first time in [her] adult life [was] proud of [her] country" when her husband began winning presidential primaries. Michelle, please go visit America.

Get more information about the important PA campaign being waged by Marine Tom Manion against left-wing lapdog Patrick Murphy by going to: Patrick Murphy did serve (as a lawyer) in Iraq. Since he's come back, he's been busy cultivating Nancy Pelosi's favor and undermining the missions of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The extreme Left, funded largley by George Soros-types, loves Patrick Murphy.

Dear Patriot:

My name is Janet Manion. My husband and my son are both Marines, who served their country honorably and proudly. Tom just retired from the Corps this year, and you can probably imagine our pride when our son, Travis, donned the uniform.

Then our son went off to war, and on April 29, 2007, Travis was killed by enemy sniper fire in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. He died fighting courageously against an enemy ambush.

Yes, the tears still come every day.And as you can imagine, both Tom and I miss Travis terribly. We want to make sure that his passion and commitment lives on, which is why Tom announced his candidacy to run for Congress in Pennsylvania.

While Tom is the first to admit that he draws his inspiration from Travis, his qualifications are significant in their own right. He spent thirty years of his life serving his country as a Marine, and has a successful business career in the private sector.

Based on Travis’ heroic story, and Tom’s dedication to continue serving America, you might think his election to Congress would be easy. Well, nothing could be further from the truth.

Tom’s opponent, first-term Congressman Patrick Murphy is most remembered as the Iraqi veteran who became an instant darling of the liberals and Hollywood crowd for his denunciation of America’s stand in the War on Terror.

Not surprisingly, Murphy has also become a loud supporter of Barack Obama - - and Obama’s cut and run strategy for Iraq. Liberal supporters all across America are opening up their checkbooks and writing large checks to Patrick Murphy. In fact, he has more than $2,200,000 on hand.

I hope you’ll take just a few minutes to watch this compelling story, entitled “Letters from Travis.”But I hope you will do much more than just watch… I am asking that you contribute immediately to Tom’s campaign, so he can reach voters with his message of putting America first.

You can be sure the anti-war, pro-surrender liberal groups will keep the money flowing for Patrick Murphy. I strongly urge you to make sure Tom’s campaign is equally well financed.I urge you to watch this video, then take a moment to support Tom’s campaign… and help us all continue the fight for America’s future.

Thank you, Janet

Vets for Freedom Are Saying Yes to the Surge, NO to Obama

Vets take Obama to taskBy: Mike Allen August 26, 2008 12:33 PM EST,

DENVER — The conservative group Vets for Freedom is launching a $1.1 million ad buy during the Democratic National Convention, using video of Iraq war veterans to take Barack Obama to task for not giving the surge policy sufficient credit for improvement in battleground conditions.
The 30-second spot, called “I Am the Surge,” features three Iraq war veterans who served in the surge of U.S. military forces into Iraq: Gabriel Herrera, David Thul and Travis Quinlan.
The ad will run in Denver and Minnesota during the conventions, and for the next four weeks in the swing states of Ohio, Michigan, Virginia and Colorado.
Vets for Freedom Chairman Pete Hegseth, a decorated former Army infantry platoon leader in Baghdad, said in a statement: “Vets for Freedom will not stand by and let the incredible progress of our troops go unnoticed by the American public and lawmakers from either side of the aisle. Hegseth is at the convention to tell lawmakers, delegates and the press about his observation during a recent return to Iraq.

“It is essential that our top legislators — regardless of party — understand the importance of victory in Iraq, the consequences of defeat and the success of the surge,” Hegseth said. “Sen. Obama has said that he would still oppose the surge if given another opportunity and has pointed to every outside factor but the surge to explain improvements in Iraq. We hope he will listen to the veterans who have served there and support this important resolution for the sake of the troops.” The group describes itself as a nonpartisan organization established by combat veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and as the largest Iraq and Afghanistan veterans organization in America.

Here is the text of the ad:
Herrera: I am a sergeant …
Thul: U.S. Army staff sergeant …
Quinlan: Combat infantryman …
Herrera: And I am …
Thul: I am …
Quinlan: And I am the surge.
Herrera: Sen. Barack Obama credits the improvements in Iraq to anything but the surge … Quinlan: But I know the surge worked. I was there … I saw Al Qaeda decimated.
Thul: And watched the Iraqi government grow stronger …
Herrera: Sens. Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham have introduced a resolution.
Thul: Recognizing the success of the surge …
Herrera: So call Sen. Obama, and tell him to support our success by supporting Senate Resolution 636.
Thul: Vets for Freedom is responsible for the content of this advertising.
