Concerned Veterans For America Run By A Lying Chicken Hawk

Pete Hegseth Republican Mouth Piece and Corporate Whore
Let's start with corporate whore Pete Hegseth, CEO. Former executive director for Vets for Freedom. Like other Repulican liars Pete Hegseth talks the talk but never walked the walk. Like former co president Bush Pete Hegseth served in the National Guard. That's what a lot of Republican chicken hawks do so that they can avoid any hazardous duty, Co President George W Bush joined the Texas Air National Guard  while co president Cheney was a draft dodger like Ted Chicken Hawk Nugent.  So what did Pete Hegseth do while in the National Guard. Pete was in charge of abusing prisoners at Gitmo but he denies it.

Other that run their mouths and attack Democrats what does Concerned Veterans for America actually do for veterans? Not a fucking thing. They are a merely a PAC funded by coal giant Koch Industries. As a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, CVA is not required to disclose its donors. However, research by ProPublica found that the Koch-linked TC4 Trust gave $1,968,000 to CVA between mid-2011 and mid-2012.[12] This would appear to be almost all of the revenue CVA reported to the IRS for its 2011-2012 fiscal year.


Money man Hegseth worked as an analyst" at Bear, Stearns & Co., Inc. Hegseth was a Family Research Council Witherspoon Fellow at Princeton University.

Hegseth served in Guantanamo Bay "on a security mission with his National Guard unit and, upon his return from Cuba, he volunteered to join the 3rd Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division for their deployment to Iraq from 2005-2006. Serving as an infantry Platoon Leader and an assistant Civil-Military Operations officer in Baghdad as well as Samarra, Lt. Hegseth earned the Combat Infantryman's Badge and Bronze Star Medal for his time in Iraq."[32]
Note: Civil Military Operations "includes missions such as providing humanitarian assistance to communities when needed, or conducting an economic assessment of a district [such as] in Baghdad."[33]
On July 11, 2007, Hegseth, who was interviewed on Jim Vicevich's WTIC News/talk radio show in Connecticut "re: Keeping Soldiers Fighting in the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan",[34] was described as a "First Lieutenant for the 1-69 Infantry (New York Army National Guard)

Hegseth Exposed For The Coward He Really Is 


Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) is a 501(c)(4) non-profit which seems to be funded almost entirely by the Koch brothers donor network.[1] CVA advocates for reductions in federal spending and free market policies, focusing its campaigns on themes related to veterans.
The group's CEO, Pete Hegseth, was the former executive director of the pro-Iraq War Vets for Freedom[2] and as of June 2014 was finance chair of the Republican Party of Minnesota.[3] Hegseth appears to have attended at least one Koch network summit meeting.
An investigation by ProPublica found that Concerned Veterans for America submits its IRS filings under the name Vets for Economic Freedom Trust. Those documents list former Koch Industriesmanaging director Wayne Gable as a trustee.[4]

False claims by Coward Pete Hegseth click

Pete's "Heroism" is Mostly Bullshit"


False claims?

On August 17, 2007, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council wrote:[10]
"Last year, Pete formed an organization called Vets for Freedom, whose growing influence is the feature of a lengthy article in today's Washington Times. Pete says he started the group because he felt the 'pro-mission vets' voice,' was not being heard in the debate."
In a July 17, 2007, article published by Military.com, Christian Lowe wrote that, in 2006, Pete Hegseth "was leading Soldiers in combat, tamping down the flames of the sectarian bloodletting that erupted after a massive explosion demolished the so-called 'Golden Mosque' on his home turf of Samarra, Iraq ... Despite the danger, he saw value in his mission of stabilizing Iraq and fighting terrorism. ... But his fight didn't stop upon his return to high-intensity civilian life in New York City - just the tools he'd use to wage it."[14]
Note: "In between tours" to Iraq, Hegseth "worked as an analyst" at the "leading global investment banking, securities trading and brokerage firm"[15] Bear, Stearns & Co., Inc..[16]
Lowe then wrote:[17]
"So Hegseth teamed with former Marine infantry leader Wade Zirkle and other Iraq and Afghanistan war vets to muster troops to their cause. They started Vets for Freedom in 2006 hoping to energize like-minded vets of recent combat deployments into a fifth column will help influence the war debate."
Although both accounts make a nice news story, story it may well be, since Hegseth's name was not associated with Vets for Freedom before May 9, 2007, when Hegseth, described as a First Lieutenant in the U.S. National Guard, appeared on Chris Matthews' MSNBC show Hardball as a VFF spokesman.[18] At the time, Hegseth's name did not appear on the VFF website.[19]
In a May 21, 2007, posting on Power Line Blog, Hegseth announced that he had became VFF's Executive Director[20], replacing VFF co-founder Wade Zirkle.[21]
Additionally, in January 2006, when VFF was founded, Hegseth's name is not found among or associated with VFF's founding members. Nor is it found on any official VFF (or VFF-AF) documents[22],news releases, or appearances by VFF members prior to May 2007.
As of July 9, 2007, Hegseth was "working full-time" as VFF's executive director.[23]

On his abuse of detainees at Gitmo


"There is abuse at Gitmo, as our Witherspoon Fellowship Alumnus, 1/LT Pete Hegseth, has said: it's the detainees abusing their guards. They are the ones who throw bodily waste on the guards and hit their own Korans!"
