Subject: PLEASE READ: Pro-war town hall rally coming to Louisville

Dear LPAC and Iraq Campaign Supporters,

On Saturday November 10th, Vets for Freedom & Vets for Victory will host a pro-war “town hall rally” in Louisville. These groups are attempting to portray to local and national media that Kentuckians actually support the Iraq War and Senator McConnell’s support of the White House Iraq policies.

On October 17, Vets for Freedom hosted a “town hall rally” in Walton, KY. While the group hoped to show pro-war results in a conservative area of the Commonwealth, the weak turnout of pro-war citizens and the strong showing of anti-war veterans did not not allow them to achieve their goal. Vets for Freedom is trying very hard to change that reality. Last week they announced an aggressive national recruitment drive and a second town hall in KY with guest speaker Erwin Roberts, a pro-war Republican candidate for Rep. John Yarmuth’s seat.

In response, on Saturday November 10, the Iraq Campaign needs you to join us as we establish a strong and respectful presence at their next “town hall rally”. Vets For Freedom & Vets for Victory are coming to our town and we need to again prove to them and the media that the majority of Kentuckians do NOT support an endless, reckless war in Iraq… or Iran!

They are reacting to the overwhelming success of the KY Iraq Summer & Iraq Campaign… Will you help us continue to succeed?

Please join us on:

Saturday, November 10 3pm-5pm
Eastwood Community Center
16300 Eastwood Cutoff Road
Louisville KY 40245

This meeting should be of very high importance to all of us who do not support the reckless, endless war in Iraq!

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about these events, please feel free to call/email Sara (her contact info is listed below).

See you on Saturday Nov. 10!

All the best,
Sara, Shawn & Aniello

  1. Yes. Go to John Warner. He is my representative. But, he is very up on such matters and always follows through promptly. I had to go to him twice about a similar matter when no one else would help! [the citizenship matter] FYI, the US has never recognized dual citizenship. Had the political climate been different during Vietnam, this might have been caught. When he became a citizen here, his Canadian citizen was supposed to be revoked as a condition of accepting American citizenship. Did his family give up Canadian Citizenship? If so, when and how old was he at the time? This may be a key factor in expediting his claim.

    In his letter to John Warner he needs his Immigration file #, when his parents came here, how old was he at the time, when his parents became US citizens, if they did so, how old he was at the time. When he returned from Vietnam and his tour was up did he apply for US citizenship? He night consider sending copies of all related documents in his military records, including his DD-214.

  2. We have a military veteran friend who was honorably discharged during the Vietnam era. He served in the US Navy while having dual citizenship (Canadian/US). He was born in Canada and his family moved to New York when he was a child and became dual Canadian and US Citizens.

    After discharge my friend worked in the US for over 3 decades, paying US taxes and Social Security. When it came time to retire and apply for his pension he was informed that the US Department of Homeland Security had revoked his US citizenship and did not recognize his Canadian citizenship.

    The Social Security Administration will not begin his pension payments until his citizenship issue is resolved. He has been trying to work this matter through the VA, his local representatives in government (congressional level) and directly through the Social Security Office. No one seems to know what to do, who should take action and who has responsibility. The DHS will not reply to his inquiries. Any ideas?

    For more details see:

  3. 1.]Press freedoms, give me a break. The 1st Amendment provides for freedom of the press. The SPJ Code of Ethics says:

    Act Independently
    Journalists should be free of obligation to any interest other than the public’s right to know.

    Journalists should:

    —Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived.
    — Remain free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility.
    — Refuse gifts, favors, fees, free travel and special treatment, and shun secondary employment, political involvement, public office and service in community organizations if they compromise journalistic integrity.
    — Disclose unavoidable conflicts.
    — Be vigilant and courageous about holding those with power accountable.
    — Deny favored treatment to advertisers and special interests and resist their pressure to influence news coverage.
    — Be wary of sources offering information for favors or money; avoid bidding for news.

    It does not allow journalists to fail to distinguish political agendas and personal opinion from facts or allow biased reporting as we see every day in the media!
    2.] “There is no reason to think that future wartime presidents will act differently from Lincoln, Wilson or Roosevelt, or that future justices of the Supreme Court will decide questions differently from their predecessors,” William Rehnquist, chief justice of the United States, wrote in a book published in 1998.

    “It is neither desirable nor is it remotely likely that civil liberty will occupy as favored a position in wartime as it does in peacetime,” Rehnquist wrote in All the Laws But One.

    1.] 1798: In July 1798, Congress enacted the Alien and Sedition Acts

    2.] Civil War: President Lincoln interfered with freedom of speech and of the press and ordered that suspected political criminals be tried before military tribunals….Lincoln’s most controversial act was suspending the writ of habeas corpus

    3.] World War I: Soon after declaring war on Germany and its allies in 1917, Congress banned using the U.S. mail from sending any material urging “treason, insurrection or forcible resistance to any law.”…U.S. v. Charles Schenck. The Supreme Court unanimously upheld his conviction for printing leaflets that urged Americans to resist the draft.

    4.] World War II:..the internment of Japanese immigrants and their children in walled camps in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor…the U.S. Supreme Court:”Whatever views we may entertain regarding the loyalty to this country of the citizens of Japanese ancestry, we cannot reject as unfounded the judgment of the military authorities and of Congress that there were disloyal members of that population.”

    “Some of America’s most respected legal thinkers, while saying that the government went too far in World War II, say that some erosion of freedom in wartime is necessary.”

    Opit said: “A belief in these priciples constitutes ’siding with the enemy’”

    If you cannot see that in a war where propaganda is a major weapon, many of the activities by UNFJ, ANSWER, Code Pink,, all of which are part of or “are” umbrella groups for Workers World, a Commuist organization, help our enemy and get our troops killed; or, money donated by Code Pink in excess of $75,000 doesn’t support our enemy, then you sir are either naieve or uninformed.

    By the way, most all those groups want our Constitution done away with, their words, not mine, and they want a Utopia based on Socialist/Communist/Marxist ideology. Either way, only the end of our Constitution and our Democracy would allow their type of Government to exist in America.

    You can verify all this at You can also research all those groups yourself, which I did do, and find out that I am right.


    One in four homeless in the U.S. is a veteran. “Support the Troops.” Talk’s cheap.

    Thank Bernie Sanders for this. He signed every cut that crossed his desk on military spending! Our military was left barely able to function. Since Bush was elected, the Democratic members in Congress, especially members of the Socialist Progressive caucus, an affilaite of Democratic Socialists of America. At DSA’s National level the caucus was incepted and Bernie Sanders was very successful in its development in the House. Now as a Senator, I am sure he will try to do the same thing in the Senate if allowed.

    Hillary Clinton, George Soros, and Harold Ickes conceived the Shadow party, of which, one of the “seven sisters, is a member, to establish a network of 527’s to gain control of funds needed by the Democratic Party to function. They control the party now. The Democratic party has whored itself out to Socialists who want to end Democracy in America and as I said before do away with our Constitution!

    What do you think about this? No unfounded arguments, please! Support your remarks!

    By the way, I am among 7 veterans in my immediate family, ‘1” during WWII, “5” during Vietnam era, and “1” in this conflict who was killed! Thereis nothing cheap about my “talk or support of our troops!” Have you served?

  4. What do you think of the likes of this, I wonder.
    Lawyer/author Glenn Greenwald : “We’re at the point where a belief in due process, press freedoms and and basic restraints on government and military powers demonstrate a hatred for America and its freedoms. A belief in these priciples constitutes ‘siding with the enemy’. Ony by joyously affirming the power of the government to detain people for life with no charges, to break laws enacted by Congress, to spy on Americans with no warrants, to torture detainees, and to arrest war journalists and hold them for years can one prove one’s loyalty to the country.”
