Wave as Metaphor. The irony and timing of nature’s vagaries never fails to amaze me. Today is the First Anniversary of the Tea Party Movement as conceived by the “part Howard Beale, part Howard Jarvis anti tax crusader statement by Rick Santelli live from the trading floor of the CME Group.” The huge 8.8 earthquake in Chile and subsequent tsunami warning for Pacific ocean coasts strikes one as less than coincidence, for nature has its own sense of justice and its own method of heralding events, and, as waves, all things move in powerful cycles.
Our prayers go out to all those in Chile and in the tsunami areas and fortunately there was adequate warning to those on shorelines before it hit. Santelli’s quake on national TV a year ago was the tsunami heard ’round the world and a year later, the results have astounded everyone: those in power are quaking in their boots as a multitude of efforts to belittle, ignore, intimidate and overrun patriotic Americans continue to fail. Their demoralization efforts have gone unheeded, even as their politically correct facism has perniciously invaded all facets of our society including parts of the military but we remain steadfast and unchanging in our goals of restoring our Republic, our Liberty and our proud military history.
Tonight’s Kicking Back will celebrate this anniversary with an indepth report on Evan Vela, the Army Ranger Sargent who was sentenced to Leavenworth for following orders to take out an individual who threatened the safety of his mission and its men. Please join us at 11 PM EST, directly after Patriot’s Heart Network’s Fan the Fire! with CJ & Tallulah, featuring Carl Swennson at 9 PM EST.

Others Wrongfully Detained in the line of duty
Wendy Gumpert, Director, PR United American Patriots & Vela Family Members
Please read and see if you have ideas on how to help this family stay together.
Evan Vela, is one of four soldiers United American Patriots is currently assisting financially with legal defense fees and his needs while in Leavenworth. Evan, has a wife, Alyssa, and two small children- Jarom and Blair. He is up for parole in six months. While we are extremely hopeful, that justice will prevail for Evan, presently Alyssa is being faced with a horrible decision of trying to relocate around the Leavenworth area or moving back to Idaho with family because her apartment complex raised her rent and she can’t afford the increase. She has already given notice at the complex she is currently residing, and is faced with a move date of March 31st looming over her head. Alyssa, in the middle of all of this, has managed to be a full time student- maintaining a B- average, she will be graduating from University of Phoenix in Accounting in April, taking care of two small children, visiting Evan on a weekly basis, and while living on student loans prides herself with not claiming bankruptcy. Now with getting her degree, she can work, but she will now have to add expenses for daycare into her budget- a never ending vicious cycle. She really is a remarkable representation of strength- a true military spouse.
This situation was brought up to our Board of Directors to see if there was anything we could do for this family unit, but our focus is and rightfully has to remain Evan’s defense. We are committed in making sure Evan and his lawyers get what they need in order to have the best chance at justice so he will be able to rejoin his family as quickly as possible. Leaving Alyssa, again, in a very different military bracket.
Evan calls us on the first Monday of each month, a call which he initiated to keep us up to date on what he’s doing and how things are going. In one of our first conversations, when talking about parole, I asked Evan, if he could have his pick at any job in the world, what would it be- his response- I had the best job in the world, Army Ranger would still be my first choice. I have always been humbled by his biggest fear in all of this is letting America down and not having the chance to do more. United American Patriots gets letters from Evan on a bi-monthly basis if not more often. There have been a few that have reduced me to tears and I don’t even know this man and his family. We have seen Evan’s artwork- he is an extremely talented and a very sharp individual. His family I are working together to get the originals together, print them and sell them. Evan has been drawing feverishly to give us a variety of pictures to work with. Regretfully, this effort will not be done in time to help Evan’s family with their housing situation.
With this brief synopsis of the horrible series of circumstances, is there anything either you or your organizations can do or think of to help this family?
Being a wife and the mother of 4, I feel very strongly this family needs to remain as in tact as possible, if not for Alyssa and Evan as a couple, or their children, than for Evan himself and his identity as a husband and a father. Please contact me if you have ANY questions or ideas. Like I said earlier, we are on a very tight time restriction for something to be done.
Thank you for any help you can offer the Vela- Carnahan family-
