10, 2007, 11:30AM - I got call from Art Bernklau, President of
Veteran's For Constitutional Law
this morning, informing me that contempt of Congress
are being filed against him.... again. In the past, Art was cited for these same
charges for walking his dogs (and causing them to defecate) in front of Senator
Arlin Specter's Washington, DC office, and for leaving 50
pounds of elephant shit (obtained from the Barnum n' Bailey Circus
which was visiting NY ) in front of the
senator's office door with a business card poked into the pile. Art had carried
the shit in a sealed nylon duffel bag, and put it through the X-ray machines. When
asked by the guard what he had in the bag, Art replied,
"Oh, just some elephant shit", and
believing that statement to be in jest, the guard allowed Art to proceed to Mr.
Specter's (aka: "Sphincter") office.
In the past, Art also
ran a "Send me your doo-doo" campaign, where he distributed 300 large Lowe's
Theatre popcorn bags to veterans, with post-paid envelopes pre-addressed to
Senator Specter's office. The senator started receiving giraffe shit, lion shit,
yak shit, grizzly bear shit, rhinoceros shit, pig shit, emu-bird shit, deer shit, rabbit shit, and even more exotic turd samples in the mail.
Those charges were dismissed and turned into a Washington DC health code
violation, which in turn, was thrown out. The latest offense was sending a
hardened dog turd on a toothpick dressed in an pink
paper hors doevre diaper to Arlin Specter at the House Intelligence
I have known Mr.
Bernklau for several years. He is a radical activist fighting for the rights of
US service veterans. His small organization Veteran's For Constitutional Law
has won some stunning victories for disabled and wounded veterans who were
fighting the Veteran's Administration (sometimes for decades - and sometimes
until the day they died) for the medical care and veteran's benefits they are
entitled to as men and women who gave their lives, their health, and their
sanity in defense of this country. Art's tactics - although seemingly insane,
are calculated to get the attention that logic, reason, common sense, and simple
moral ethics fail to produce.
Mr. Bernklau rates as
"an asshole" - but he is one of the "good assholes" we spoke about on the front
page of one of our other Web sites - he does these "radical" things because
only a media circus seems to get any attention these days.
Serious issues like Gulf War Illness, and the fact that
the war in Iraq is ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL, the
September11 attacks were CONTRIVED BY OUR OWN
GOVERNMENT, the Gulf of Tonkin incident that
got us into Vietnam NEVER HAPPENED, and even the
Pearl Harbor attack
was a CONSPIRACY that INVOLVED THE PRESIDENT of the United States ever get mentioned by
the mainstream media - but we'll tell it to you here - and on
our other Web sites. We'll tell it to you
because it is TRUE.... and
PROVE IT by any standard of "legal" proof you wish.
Art tells me that he is going to do his level best to turn
this latest incident into the biggest media circus since the O.J. Simpson trial.
He has an uphill battle fighting the corruption that preys on the vulnerability
of men and women who in good faith, honorably serve their country. For the sake
of all servicemen and women who are serving multiple tours in the Iraqi
shit-hole, I pray he succeeds. You can help this effort by visiting Art's Web
