Restore Freedom: Will you stand up for Imprisoned Warriors?

Speakers for the April 17 “Restore Freedom” Day. Congressmen Scott Perry and Louie Gohmert have joined colleague Duncan Hunter to speak to the group at the House Rayburn Bldg., while the others shown here will speak at both the day evens and the evening’s conference and rally.

Join us on Tuesday – take your pick when you want to start – breakfast & capitol tour, or lunch and briefing in DC or Freedom Leadership Conference in Chantilly VA at 7:30 pm

RESTORE FREEDOM baseball caps will be given out free to those who join us in DC and only $5 for those who attend evening Freedom Leadership Conference.

Operation Restore Freedom is in full swing with a day packed with activities on Friday but how about you? Can you take time out this week to join in some part of what is scheduled for Tuesday? It shocks people to learn this but the truth is, there are American combatants being held as prisoners, not in a foreign country but right here in America at Fort Leavenworth prison, sentenced because they did their duty but under the “rules of engagement” of President Barack Obama, they were locked up.

The details are all different.

But what they have in common is that like Lt. Clint Lorance, sentenced to 19 years in prison for ordering his men to open fire on advancing Taliban terrorists who would not stop as ordered, it is wrong what happened to them. They should all be pardoned by President Trump. All of us should speak out for them. We need you with us for all or some part of Tuesday, RESTORE FREEDOM DAY.

Our previous two posts tell you the details about Tuesday. We were pleased to announce that three U.S. Congressmen have replied to our invitation message hand delivered to them all on Thursday and with a “Dear Colleague” invitation letter sent by Congressman Duncan Hunter the previous week. The three Congressmen are Scott Perry, Louie Gohmert and Duncan Hunter.

You have the choice of joining us early on Tuesday to include breakfast in DC at the House Rayburn Bldg. ground floor cafeteria, or at lunch time at the House hearing room we have reserved and the followup briefings that include three U.S. Congressmen as previously reported.

Or you can join us as a $50 host committee member for dinner at Bob Evans Restaurant (dutch treat) at 6 PM (any donation of any amount for those who spent the day in DC with us). Or come to the “Restore Freedom” Rally at the Freedom Leadership Conference.

Those who can come to the DC briefing get this band new RESTORE FREEDOM baseball cap to wear during the briefing. If we have leftover hats they’ll be available to conference attendees (who are asked to pay $5 at the door) for only $5 (below cost) as long as supplies last.

Congressmen Scott Perry, Louie Gohmert, Duncan Hunter Confirm to visit House Rayburn Building Hearing Room to Listen to United American Patriots, Uniformed Services League make the Case for a Presidential Pardon for Clint Lorance and other Unfairly Imprisoned Combat Soldiers

U.S. Congressman Scott Perry has joined with Congressmen Louie Gohmert and Duncan Hunter to attend the “Restore Freedom Day” Briefing of United American Patriots and Uniformed Services League on Tuesday, April 17 at the House Transportation and Infrastructure Hearing and Conference Suite, 2253 Rayburn House Office Bldg., 2nd Floor.

Speaking at Lunch at the “Restore Freedom” Briefing at the House Rayburn Building co-sponsored by United American Patriots and Uniformed Services League, U.S. Congressman Scott Perry was the keynote speaker at the Conservative Christian Center 2017 “Heritage Fiesta” summer picnic, shown here with member of the York County CCC Board, Bob Cosgrove.

Congressman Perry will be briefed on why he is being asked to support a Presidential Pardon for Clint Lorance and other unfairly imprisoned combat soldiers by his own constituents, Ron Cohen, Dr. Ken Gibson and Emy Delgaudio. They are part of a group of 40 visitors including four of his own constituents who will be visiting Washington, DC to ask Congressman to endorse their call for a Presidential Pardon for Clint Lorance and others.

previous post for details on the Tuesday activities or see the flyer

Congressman Scott Perry is the number one conservative congressman from Pennsylvania and one of the top conservatives in the House of Representatives, according to Heritage Action for America, which gave him a 100% rating. He was given the “Statesman of the Year” Award by the Conservative Christian Center at a York, PA Breakfast in 2017. On virtually every issue of concern to conservatives, Congressman Perry, who is also an active duty U.S. Army Reserve General, has not only voted right but has articulated conservative views, often with appearances on Fox TV and other media outlets.

Ron Cohen will be the “Master of Ceremonies” during the three hours long gathering, at which Congressmen are asked to visit at any time (or their senior staff) to listen to a 3 minute presentation, make their own remarks for 3 minutes and then, if they have time, to take 3 minutes question and answer, and pose for a group photo with the visitors (1 minute). Cohen is a member of the Retired Military Officers Advisory Board of Uniformed Services League.

Congressmen and Senators received an 8 page packet personally addressed to them inviting them to attend the Tuesday briefing, hand delivered this past Thursday. Congressmen Perry and Gohmert responded almost immediately, with Hunter having already indicated he will attend after he had been the original room sponsor for the event.

Congressman Perry will join the group for lunch, which is prepared sandwiches (boxed lunch) between 12 and 1 PM (all Congressmen are invited and may bring 1 staff member).

Perry is seeking reelection to Congress in a south central, Pennsylvania district which the Democrat dominated State Supreme Court has gerrymandered to give a better chance of having a Democrat defeat him. They removed strong Republican precincts from his Congressional district and added more Democrat-dominated precincts.

This Pennsylvania State Supreme Court redistricting is in complete defiance of the State’s Constitution, which clearly stipulates that the boundary lines of congressional and state legislative seats are to be drawn by the state legislature.

But since that’s under the Control of the Republican Party, the Democrat-dominated Supreme Court simply ruled their work unconstitutional and drew new boundary lines, so that conservative Congressmen like Scott Perry might be defeated and Nancy Pelosi restored as House Speaker. Congressman Perry’s reelection campaign can be visited HERE.

Perry was the kick off speaker at the recent Pennsylvania Leadership Conference largest annual gathering of conservatives in the keystone state. He was the keynote speaker at the 6th annual Heritage Fiesta summer picnic this past summer, co-sponsored by Conservative Christian Center. It was his 2nd appearance as keynote speaker in their six years.

Congressman Duncan Hunter, the host Congressman for the Rayburn House Office Building Hearing Room briefing, is the only Congressman who has been a combat veteran of both Iraq (2 tours) and Afghanistan (1 tour) as a U.S. Marine. He is a candidate for reelection (information HERE).

Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas, is a former U.S. Army Captain and a frequent guest on Fox TV. He is a candidate for reelection in 2018 (more info HERE).

United American Patriots and Uniformed Services League hope that at least ten or more Congressmen will visit at any time while they have the room reserved, from 12 noon to 3 PM. At 3 PM they will depart and head to an evening “Restore Freedom Rally” at the Freedom Leadership Conference which is 7:30 to 9 PM.

Both United American Patriots and Uniformed Services League will have a minimum of 20 boxes of petitions on hand, supporting a Presidential Pardon for Clint Lorance.

The evening conference will be preceded by a small dinner at a local Bob Evans Restaurant in Chantilly close to the hotel meeting site, for those who attended the day-time activity or those who can serve on the Host Committee ($50 donation). Invited guests for the 6 PM dinner and the 7:30 PM conference include the attorney for Clint Lorance, one or more family members of Clint Lorance, and the official spokesman for the two organizations sponsoring the day’s activities, United American Patriots and Uniformed Services League.

The spokesmen of each organization who will provide the Congressional briefing during the day and then be the keynote speakers at the evening “Restore Freedom Rally” at the Freedom Leadership Conference are: Lt. Col. Denny Gillem, USA (Ret.) for United American Patriots, and Richard Buck for Uniformed Services League. Gillem has been asked to serve on the board of UAP. Buck has been the USL Project Director and for seven years has been the Event Coordinator of the Freedom Leadership Conference.

The SPONSOR of the evening rally and conference is United American Patriots (40 minutes of program time) with Uniformed Services League as CO-SPONSOR (20 minutes program time).

Our readers are asked to consider what they can attend during this day’s activities to show support for combat warriors imprisoned for doing their duty under the Obama-era “rules of engagement.”

If anyone would like a ride to the morning breakfast you need to be at the Comfort Suites Hotel at 6:30 AM promptly for a free ride, and have made your reservation for the custom tour in advance AND RECEIVED A CONFIRMATION BACK by email or phone. The custom tour (led by a member of the staff of Congressman Duncan Hunter) is immediately after breakfast at the House Rayburn Bldg., and ends in time to attend the lunch at the Rayburn committee hearing room. Attendees are strongly urged to carefully read the flyer including the “small print” about the event details and advance registration requirements.

Pardon Lorance Day with Rep Duncan Hunter, Louie Gohmert

U.S. Congressmen Louie Gohmert (L) and Duncan Hunter, are the first to accept invitation to a briefing on Tues. 4/17 at the House Rayburn Bldg. Hearing Room #2253, to hear the case for a Presidential Pardon for Lt. Clint Lorance, sentenced to 19 years in prison for ordering his men to open fire on advancing Taliban terrorists in an Afghanistan combat zone. Co-sponsored by United American Patriots and Uniformed Services League.

Imprisoned Combat Veteran Clint Lorance Day on Tuesday, April 17 to feature at least 5 U.S. Congressmen

United American Patriots and Uniformed Services League call for Pardon for Lorance, to end the day with “Restore Freedom Rally” at Freedom Leadership Conference at 7:30 PM

The American Army Lieutenant serving 19 years of prison for ordering his men to open fire on advancing Taliban terrorists in an Afghanistan combat zone under the Obama-era “rules of engagement” is getting some help this Tuesday. United States Congressman Duncan Hunter, himself a Marine combat veteran, has reserved a hearing room in the Rayburn Office Building of the U.S. House of Representatives for a 3 hour lunch and briefing for U.S. Congressman. Hunter and Representative Louie Gohmert are both slated to speak to attendees there along with at least another 3 to 8 Congressmen expected to confirm.

side 1 of event Flyer

More to the point, the co-sponsors of the event (who are paying all expenses), United American Patriots and Uniformed Services League, don’t just want the Congressmen who attend their briefing to listen. They want to hear them respond and find out if Congressmen will join their colleague, Rep. Duncan Hunter, in speaking out for and supporting a Presidential pardon for an Army officer who simply did his duty in combat and doesn’t deserve prison as his reward.

side 2 of the flyer – with the detailed itinerary for the entire day.

The two groups expect that every one of the 40 seats in the hearing room will be filled and in fact have asked the vendor helping with setup to bring folding chairs – but you may still reserve a seat at the event HERE. Those who do RSVP have priority seating, and the Congressional staff requires us to provide them in advance the list of attendees. There are plenty of seats still available for the evening conference. Some of those who attend the day activity with Congressmen will be invited to share their experience at the evening conference and Rally. Continue reading

Trump Tweet on Pardon of Kristian Saucier

Trump pardons Kristian Saucier, former sailor jailed for submarine pictures

by Steven Nelson

President Trump issued the second pardon of his presidency Friday to former Navy sailor Kristian Saucier, who learned the news while driving a garbage truck, the only job he could find with a felony conviction.

Saucier was sentenced to a year in prison during the 2016 campaign for taking pictures inside a nuclear submarine. Trump invoked his case repeatedly on the campaign trail, saying he was “ruined” for doing “nothing” compared to Hillary Clinton.

Still, Trump allowed Saucier to serve his full prison sentence. He was released in September and returned to the Vermont home he shares with his wife Sadie and their two-year-old daughter.

Too many of our dedicated soldiers have been put in prison

Too many of our dedicated soldiers have been put in prison for doing their duty wearing the uniform of our country and serving abroad.

Lt. Clint Lorance was sentenced to 20 years for ordering his men to open fire on Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan.

During the era of President Barack Obama, sometimes those who served had more to fear from a court martial than from the enemy trying to kill them.

I wish you and I could help all of those servicemen who were wrongfully convicted.  In our speaking out FOR for Lt. Clint Lorance with your help, we have made a start.

recently, we started a national campaign to pardon Lt. Lorance, sentenced to 20 years in prison for ordering his men to open fire on advancing Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan.

And we spoke out to protest Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s decision to pay $8 million to a terrorist who killed an American Delta Force Medic, Sgt. First Class Christopher Speer.

And now we are reviewing other shocking cases where American servicemen have been sentenced to prison for doing their duty.  Listen to what I have learned this week.

Sgt. Derrick Miller defended himself from a known terrorist who attempted to grab his weapon.  His wife is now alone and his two daughters are without their daddy as Sgt. Miller was sentenced to prison for self-defense.

Navy SEAL Chief Dave Swarts was accused of beating several terrorists who had just killed a local Afghan Local Policeman.

The SEAL Chief and his men didn’t even hold the terrorist captive – the local Afghan police did.  Yet his career was put on hold along with his team of three other SEAL’s.

It seemed there was an information leak.  Soldiers at his Company kept getting killed and wounded in camp.

So, Sgt. Andrew Doyle helped his suspicious Company Commander question the terrorists who their higher command had assigned to clean the latrines at their military base.  With the information they got, they stopped the casualties.

His reward?  Sgt. Andrew Doyle was kicked out of the military with a less than honorable discharge.

The same thing happened to Allan Moser – kicked out of the military with a less than honorable discharge, and for doing something very similar.

Army Specialist Moser had been a model soldier, but because he questioned suspected terrorists who were helping kill and wound American soldiers from his unit, the terrorist bit down into his hand and wouldn’t let go.

Moser called it self-defense but the Army threw him out for the claim that he had hit the terrorist.

Another less than Honorable discharge – which means the end of his military career, no Post 9/11 GI bill benefits and the loss of honor earned by his service.

In each of these cases, it appears nobody takes the side of those who wore the uniform of our country and went into harm’s way to defend our freedom.

That is why there’s a Uniformed Services League.

In each case, those wrongfully accused soldiers were punished for doing their job as uniformed warriors.

In each case, a “politically correct” establishment Army brass knuckled under to the Barack Obama rules of engagement that handcuff our servicemen and reward America’s enemies.

Isn’t it about time we put up a vigorous defense for American servicemen like Lt. Clint Lorance, Sgt. Derrick Miller, Navy SEAL Chief Dave Swarts and the three members of his SEAL Team, Sgt. Andrew Doyle?

You and I have our freedom because of their service, their willingness to literally put their lives on the line for us in defense of our freedom and our future.

You and I must demand justice.

These servicemen who have been wronged by Obama-era “rules of engagement” that punish warriors and literally give aid and comfort to our enemies.

Uniformed Services League

P.S. It is crazy that the terrorist whose hand grenade killed an American special forces medic was paid $8 million by Canadian Prime Minister Justine Trudeau.  Crazy that Lieutenant Clint Lorance was sentenced to 20 years prison for ordering his men to open fire on advancing terrorists.  Please help Uniformed Services League speak out and end this craziness.

Uniformed Services League asks for Lt. Clint Lorance Pardon

Lt. Clint Lorance was sentenced to 20 years for ordering his men to open fire on Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan.

Lt. Clint Lorance was sentenced to 20 years for ordering his men to open fire on Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan during the era of President Barack Obama.  Uniformed Services League asks for a Presidential Pardon for him.

USL Praises Congressman Duncan Hunter for speaking out for Lt. Lorance, undertakes nationwide campaign to build support for Presidential Pardon

Lt. Clint Lorance has been sentenced to 19 years in jail after his combat service in Afghanistan.

Lt. Lorance ordered his men to use deadly force to protect themselves in combat.

It is absurd to think that soldiers could face criminal prosecution for doing what they were sent to do in combat – kill the enemy and protect their own men.

It is even crazier to think that in the age of President Barack Obama, evidence proving that his men fired on terrorists, not innocent civilians, was never allowed at his court martial.

Congressman Duncan Hunter, a former U.S. Marine Major, has spoken out strongly for Lt. Clint Lorance, has been praised by Uniformed Services League.

Congressman Duncan Hunter, a former U.S. Marine Major, who has spoken out strongly for Lt. Clint Lorance, has been praised by Uniformed Services League.

As Congressman Duncan Hunter – himself a Marine combat veteran – reported “previously withheld information now confirms forensic evidence (has) linked DNA found on detonated roadside bombs to the… Afghan men” (ie. terrorists).

Lt. Lorance would be the first to tell you he is no hero.  He was just trying his best to do his job, to protect his men, to follow his orders, when assigned to Afghanistan.

But during the reign of President Barack Obama it seems you have to be more worried about being sent to jail for nearly 20 years than being shot or blown up by terrorists in Afghanistan.
