A handful of perpetual malcontents with their hand out make headline news in every newsroom in America for weeks on end. The 3% who want a free ride on taxpayers back can get coverage anytime they want from the Goebbels-like American media.

But where is the press coverage on a Declaration to Restore the Constitutional Republic issued by thousands of Military Veterans and millions of patriotic taxpayers across the country? I hear crickets…

Since the American press has become little more than a bull horn for the Obama administration and the International Left, I suppose it makes sense that thousands of Veterans calling for Obama’s impeachment would not be news worthy in the modern American newsroom. After all, the last time thousands of patriotic Americans stood up to the federal government with veterans at the helm, it turned into the first American Civil War. That’s not news worthy…

In fact, we have come to expect and even accept the reality that the American press is in the propaganda business, rather than the news business. Even FOX News, albeit “fair and balanced” - is no longer truthful or accurate in its reporting.

But, what about the new online medium—the so-called conservative blogosphere? The best event coverage has come from outside the USA, from Canada Free Press. Inside the USA, it has come from World Net Daily, Right Side News and Post & Email.

From Newsmax, American Thinker, American Spectator, Townhall, Drudge and many others?—Nothing – zippo – nada… and from the conservative TV and radio personalities? – crickets again!

This means that this is a true grassroots patriot operation, led by American Veterans and joined by real American patriots who learned about the event by word of mouth and joined the event because they believe that the time has come to draw a clear line in the sand. They really do support their veterans when it counts.

As demonstrated by the list of common average Americans that nobody ever heard of, supporting the 11.11.11 event in D.C., this is not the average event seen over the last few years. There will be no quarter-million dollar stage, sound and lights production – no $100k-$200k marque speakers in million dollar buses or two-million dollar planes.

At this event on Veterans Day in D.C. at the Washington Monument, the veterans are the stars of the show. There will be no Vegas Strip atmosphere, and no big outdoor concert setting. The people coming to D.C. on 11.11.11 are not coming for a show, but with a very specific purpose.

In their nationwide Call-to-Action, the veterans put it quite succinctly –

We CALL upon every member of federal, state and local government, legislative, judicial, law

enforcement and military, who have taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitutional

Republic from all enemies, foreign and domestic, to act upon those oaths for the stated purpose of

restoring the Constitutional Republic.

We CALL upon ALL veterans and veteran organizations in America, who still believe in their

oath to protect and defend, to unite with us at once - in this Declaration to Restore the

Constitutional Republic.

We CALL for ALL citizens who still desire freedom and liberty, to stand with us in peaceful

protest, and carry our demands to right the wrongs against our nation in the preservation of

freedom, liberty, justice and the rule of law.

Decorated officers, service members and law enforcement concerned about the direction of our country will be the keynote speakers at this event, even if they have to speak through a bull horn.

The Event is to begin with a muster time of 0600 at the Washington Monument with an event starting time of 0800. The schedule for the event is fluid as an unknown number plan to attend from all across the country. The people can speak at this event, namely the veterans.

There will be no campaign speeches, no pleas for donations, no sale of tee-shirts or hats and if anyone performs, they will do so on a volunteer basis, not for pay.

The group comes in peace, and they call upon all American veterans and patriots to do the same, leaving the event grounds in better shape than they find it. The event is not the end, but rather marks the beginning of an ongoing effort to enforce the Declaration to Restore the Constitutional Republic. The veterans have never lost the will to stand by their oaths to protect and defend and they never will.

Nobody has to pay them to come, they come of their own free will, not to start a war, but in an effort to avoid another Civil War, demanding that all elected officials begin to live by their oaths as well.

The press will not help. Even many in the conservative blogosphere will not help. Some are even taking pot shots at the veterans for their willingness to make a stand on 11.11.11… but that will not weaken the resolve of these veterans, not on 11.11.11 or any other day.

The event will unfold on the ground in D.C. on 11.11.11 and I hope it will be the shot heard across the nation, if not around the world. If not now, when? If not standing with the veterans, with who?

If not peacefully, then how?

I will be there on 11.11.11 and I hope you will be too! God bless all who have taken an oath, but especially all who still intend to keep that oath. I am proud to stand with them!
