Ten Seven Club Mission

The Ten Seven Club is dedicated to the date that America was cast into a perpetual and endless state of war by a self-castrated political body…The United States Congress.

Today is an important anniversary. It’s not one you’ll see people celebrating. You may not even see it get a news headline.

But it’s the day that permanently changed the direction of our country.

Twenty-one years ago, on October 7. 2001, the boots of the first American soldiers touched dirt in Afghanistan.

Our invasion, less than a month after the terrorist attacks of September 11, began.

And the Global War on Terror was officially launched.


21 Years of the Global War on Terror – powered by sovren.media

At 21 years old, the Global War on Terror could legally buy a drink, but it’s still not a constitutional military operation.

Our government still operates under the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, a blank check for war with no end date, financial constraint, or territorial limitation.

This is not how a representative government of laws functions.

Our troops are home from Afghanistan, in no small-part because of the work of veterans and organizations like Bring Our Troops Home.

But we still have thousands of soldiers deployed into combat operations in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and across Africa.

And Congress hasn’t declared war once.

I named our supporters group the Ten Seven Club after October 7, 2001.

Its name is a reminder. When you hear it, you should think about every new day that gets added to this war’s length.

Every day our soldiers are put into harm’s way, and every day our Constitution is violated.

That’s why, in remembrance of Ten Seven, I’m asking you to make at $25 contribution.

I’m asking you to do this because I’m building a fifty-state strategy for Defend the Guard. This legislation will keep our National Guard out of illegal wars, and force a change of policy in DC.

But what are you doing to help? That’s what you need to ask.

Our organization—like all others—can only go so far as our budget will take us.

And so far, we’ve gotten Defend the Guard introduced in twenty-five states on a shoestring budget and limited full-time staff. That’s because we believe heart and soul in this mission.

Veterans get the job done.

But if we’re going to see the successes we need in 2023, we need to step up our game.

And that only happens when you make a financial contribution at TenSevenClub.com.

Do I tell a bill sponsor, someone who has voluntarily put a target on their back and angered the Pentagon, sorry we can’t help at your committee meeting, I don’t have the money for a plane ticket?

Do I say sorry activist, who’s willing to give time to our project and our soldiers, I can’t send you any materials, it’s not in the budget?

Do not let the America First movement die because you thought someone else would pick up the tab.

A one-time $25 contribution in memory of October 7, 2001. That’s what I’m asking. That’s what we need.

And if you don’t have that money to spare—times are tight in Biden’s economy—then you know someone who can give that. Ask them, tell them about us, spread the message.

We will succeed or fail in 2023 based on generosity of our supporters. If you want to bring our troops home, we will.

If you don’t, we’ll stay in endless wars the rest of your life, and your children’s.

Go to TenSevenClub.com and give $25 today.

Thank you.
