The VDA Declaration Rally is/was a success and no amount of complaining from critics who didn't attend will not change that fact! This event was not a tea party pep rally/show! That is why it didn't look like or work out to be one. We never intended on it being a party/show!

11 banner
D.C. on 11.11.11 11.11.11

It was a cold and windy Veterans Day in our nation's capitol, but many veterans and patriots braved the weather and stood tall on 11.11.11

Canada Free Press Editor Judi McLeod was present and reported from the event. WND reporter Anita Crane was present to chronicle the event and has posted several other pictures from the day on her web site. Thank you Anita and WND!

How many showed?

The crowd is estimated at 200-300 throughout the day, with people coming and going as the wind and cold persisted.
But in that crowd, nearly every state was represented, from as far away as Hawaii and the West Coast, to Montana, Arizona, Texas, Ohio, Indiana and as near as the New England states. Most stayed until we wrapped up early at about 3:00 PM ET.

What was the tone?

Throughout the attendees, the message and tone was very clear... These folks are prepared to do whatever it takes to restore the Constitutional Republic. Most have been involved in different patriot groups over the last few years and have watched nothing change in our country, despite their many efforts. These folks want real change and they no longer rely upon politicians, competing patriot factions or anyone else to bring about that change.

The Speakers?

The entire event was video taped, about ten DVD's worth. We will edit that material down into usable DVD's and YouTube clips, to expand the reach of our message via the Internet in the days ahead. Feedback from attendees has been overwhelming... We have some fantastic information on tape.

The Challenges of the Event? 

Many said we could not get a permit in less than three weeks - we got one in three days. Many said we could not get a stage and sound in place in less than three months - but we got a stage and sound in place within a week. Many said people did not have enough notice - but many made it there from all across the country. They said we would have trouble from Occupiers and the Federal Government - but we had no trouble from anyone.

Moral to this story? We are in the business of doing things that can't be done....

We have not heard a single negative from anyone who attended the event. Negative comments have only come from those who did not attend, as is always the case. The sidelines are always full of critics...

In the end, we did exactly what we said we would do, exactly how we said we would do it. A lot of other people did not do what they said they would do, namely, keep their oaths.

We are proud of the event as it was exactly what it was signed to be, a gathering of patriots and veterans ready to do whatever it takes. From the founding of Patriots Union and Veteran Defenders, we have stated that we would rather have a small number of "doers" than a huge crowd of "talkers."

That's what we had in D.C. on 11.11.11 and we are proud to stand with each of them!

Thanks to all who attended, and all who made it possible with your donations to cover the expense of the event. Use of the video shot at the event will pay huge dividends in the weeks and months ahead, as we continue our march across the country to Restore the Constitutional Republic.

Next, we begin to seat State Directors and we met plenty of energetic, committed leaders in D.C. from almost every state.

Thank you all!

What next? 

The strategy beyond 11.11.11 will begin... As we stated from the start, 11.11.11 did not mark the end, but the beginning. From here, we seat State Director, followed by County Coordinators. We need both patriot and veteran leaders in every state and every county.

Members will have an opportunity to send the Declaration to their elected officials and call upon each of them to affirm and keep their oaths to protect and preserve the Constitutional Republic.

Then, we call upon every member and every leader to begin pushing back daily, from the ground up, confronting unconstitutional and illegal acts both locally and nationally.

11.11.11 was the starting gate and it is a long road ahead to the finish line. The time for action, a sustained strategy and effort has arrived. Stay tuned for further announcements and make sure to open every email from either Patriots Union or Veteran Defenders.


Molon Labe, Laus Deo, and 11/11/11

"We the people" need that Spartan resolve -but not their defensive attitude. The time for drawing lines in the sand is past-saying "This far and no farther." That has been the scenario followed time and time again over the last century in America.

Special Thanks!

The Patrick Henry Message!


Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!

You need to enlist the support of a Glenn Beck personality to get the numbers. Don't be discouraged! It's nearly impossible for people to drop what they're doing to protest. We are NOT the 99%ers who have trust funds to fall back on! Our absence doesn't indicate any lack of desire. It only signals our inability to fund the trip. Perhaps a nation wide protest would be a better venue, not altogether different from OWS gatherings, just on our terms. No occupation, just wholesome messages from real Americans!

Dear Chuck,

As Mike Tyson said awhile back, "Everyone has a plan tell they get hit!"

Probably the most profound words to ever come from Mike's mouth.

If you are talking about his 8-28 rally, there were only about 650,000.

9-12-2009 had about 2,000,000 and Beck wasn't even there.

Are you talking about the 9-12 rally or the 8-28 rally? Becks pictures of 8-28 showed (in comparison to the MLK rally, which was 500,000) about 650,000.

I was there on 9-12 and we covered the 1st section that BO had 465,000 chairs in, wider than the chair section. But we didn't extend as far back as BO had chairs. Estimate at 10:30, by the Park Police was 1,500,000. BO had 1,800,000 in chairs. And Beck was in New York.

It is NOT impossible, you just have to want it bad enough. We just made an international move and lost half our income because I don't have job anymore. Was it hard, you betcha, I HAD to go and we found a way. We don't need Beck or anyone else, WHAT we DO NEED is for all patriots to stand, we all need to come together on what we do agree on and later we can figure out the other 10%. What will be YOUR excuse when they come knocking on your door in the middle of the night??? Good lord, did we learn nothing from history?What is the saying? All it takes for evil to enter is for all good men to do nothing (or something like that). Will you or anyone else I've heard complain/excuse why they weren't there, will you stand when they come knocking, will you have the time or money then??? I'm sorry if I come across as rough but I'm not sure everyone is awake that says they are. When is the time to stand? Tomorrow, next week, next month, next year????? If your waiting for the elections you are still sleeping, they will solve nothing.

This Patriot Pastor preached to Hospitalized Veterans, and the Restoration Rally was mentioned in our prayers.  We had two Services, both well intended.  I am sure most would have liked to be in Washington, D.C.!

I didn't get to go Miss Twana, but we were praying for ya'll. Keep up the good work. we would have been there if we could have gotten out of the house.


Go with Gods blessings

Ben and Margrette Robbins


Going to the rally was NOT something that I wanted to do! I would rather have peace and prosperity in this country without obama present, this we do not have, so as a citizen of the finest country this world has ever known,I HAD to go!

Why did I go, why did I donate money, why am I disgruntled? Because too many people,not real patriotic citizens, voted for a foreign,marxist, muslim that hates America and most people and whites in particular just to prove to themselves that they were not a racist,THAT is why I went.

When, and it better be soon, the military shows up at the Capital building with over a hundred thousand strong with indictments in hand for everyone that deserves one and are escorted to a sight of incarceration.

This would include the Supreme Court and all of this administration, I will breath a sigh of relief but NOT rest till those that are responsible for this debacle are convicted and dealt with as only treasonous people can be.

Am I mad? That is putting it mildly, my father was in the Philippines(127th Inf) my father-in-law had one ship that sank under him(USS Gregory) another hit by a Kamikaze(USS Cassin Young) If I did any less it would be an insult to these fine men that are no longer here to continue the fight.

My war was Vietnam(173rd ABN) I am still in disbelief of what our government did after losing 58,000+ lives.

In my opinion those that served and are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan will feel the same, our government will cut and run, the troops want to win, politician are not held responsible for the lives that THEY have lost!

It seems as though our politician have little reluctance to start a war, but they have no idea how to win one and will not get out of the way and let the military win the damn thing, then they can take credit for the win.

A politician never takes credit for a loss!

Can all of congress NOT see that the American people want this illegal alien gone from our shores, who is it that covers this mans past personal history and WHY?

What hold does this man have on our government to make them cow tow as they do?

If any of the current politician are breathing......free air in two years we as a country may be a lost cause.

SOME ONE MUST PAY for obama, besides obama!

I am not talking about one year probation and a pension either.

If I were allowed, there would be no measure as to how fast I would bring the fight to obama's front door.

ONE LAST thought, DO NOT rely on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, they are political hacks and appointees.

Yes Arnie, I am PO'ed.

John, having read several of your posts... I just have one minor observation.  There are plenty of Oak Trees in and around the DC area some of them very mejestic and God knows there are plenty of nuts around there too and up in them branches there are nuts hanging... .  It is time or real close to the time for them lower level branches to be utilized.  I am sure you caught my drift.  Bob


I think I get the jest of your message.

It is getting that time of year to decorate the trees, isn't it?

A great man once said "We cannot dedicate,we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow, this ground." If I can para phrase the next sentence some what,The brave men, living (civilians) and DEAD (politicians) hanging in the trees as a reminder to the next ones that want to change our way of life!

"That this nation,under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from this earth"

Isn't if funny how so many of the greatest real American speeches still fit our agenda?


I in NO way meant this as an endictment of your writing or paricipation of the rally.

I am very thankful for ladies and people like you that made this rally what it was.

You did put me on to the ride that got me to DC.

As for me, give me Liberty or give me death, but let my grand children have FREEDOM.

We are responsible for this mess NOT them.

I get very emotional at times.

Thanks again,


Twana, I am sorry that you had to deal with the rotten apple in the patriot barrel; however, you are in exalted company.  George Washington had to contend with some of those types, and fight a war as well.

You all did well in DC and I am proud to know you and be even loosely associated. 

Many of us could not come to DC this time mostly due to finances.  Many are out of work and those that are retired may have to help some family members who have no income due to the economy.
