That government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish!

A Petty Action by a very Petty President.

A Petty Action by a very Petty President.   It is not only this action, but others as well, the one that comes to mind the most is the cancelation, until this morning, of Football Games by the Military Academies’.   The monies used to hold these games are “NON APROPRIATED” monies, and hence there is absolutely NO REASON,  (OTHER THAN SHEAR PETTYNESS), to deny the Academies’ their football games.  Many of the Parks are also unmanned and could be used.

 

Again, I will say that this all goes to show the disgusting depth that Obama will go to, in order to have “HIS Way”.   This Brings to mind a disagreeable child taking his toys home with him after having a disagreement with the other children.

The government shutdown should never, ever turn away veterans (especially WW II veterans) from visiting an un-manned memorial established specifically for them!

Obama Holding Memorials Hostage!

In spite of Government Shutdown and Closure of WW II Memorial, Veterans Celebrate Anyway!

Obama Cannot Squelch Veteran’s Celebration!

Dear Conservative Friend,

The Government shutdown has begun!

But it is not enough to STOP WW II Two veterans!

The Obama Government Shutdown was “arranged” to inflict damage on veterans.  Several groups of veterans from World War II ventured to Washington D.C. to remember their fallen comrades in World War Two.

In spite of the fact that the memorial is an OPEN AIR WWII MEMORIAL, it WAS BARRACADED due to the Government shutdown!!  Someone had to be paid to block it off from people coming to walk the grounds!

These heroes were mostly between 85 – 95 years old and were there for a once in a life time visit.  They managed to respect their fallen and still find solace in each other despite having to “trespass” on government property to pray for their former comrades.  Honor Flight, a non-profit organization, helped to fly these veterans to the nation’s capital, just to visit the memorial and had planned it years ago. 

This is an outside, free roaming park, with no inside museum and not one paid government employee missing in action due to the government shutdown.

Yet, representatives of the Obama administration, sent “reinforcements’ to “secure” the closed gates.  The veterans continued on their march to celebrate their fallen comrades!

Many Obama administration minions actually wondered why they were dispatched to ward off these heroes and World War Two veterans.

Please notify Congress that cannot diminish the celebration of the WW II veterans as they visit the Memorial.  Let Congress know that they MUST negotiate the opening of the government shutdown, without giving up the anti-Obamacare.

In spite of the Democrat’s absolute refusal to negotiate, Veterans will continue to come to Washington to honor their fallen comrades.

They will do what happened yesterday.  They will IGNORE the barricades put up by the Obama administration, and will celebrate their fallen comrades.

To many, including a 93-year-old veteran, they will honor their fellow veterans.

The shame upon the Obama administration is that they already knew these veterans had already scheduled a trip to the Memorial, yet they did NOT make any accommodations for them!

This included a request from a Congressman!

In reality, the Obama administration created more work and more debt to block the Veterans admittance.  Since it is an open-air memorial which is most generally accessible 24/7, it required more work (and taxpayer dollars with the government shutdown) to block it off than to just simply leave it alone.

Congressman Steven Palazzo (R-MS) sent a letter to President Obama asking him to keep the World War II memorial open. His letter read:

“It would truly be devastating to our veterans that travel great lengths to share this experience with family and friends and see a piece of their own history,” Palazzo wrote in the letter. “Additionally, it would require extra effort, expense, and personnel to put up these barricades and enforce these regulations on open-air monuments than it would to allow Honor Flight veterans to visit their memorial.”

Please notify Congress that cannot diminish the celebration of the WW II veterans as they visit the Memorial.  Let Congress know that they MUST negotiate the opening of the government shutdown, without giving up the anti-Obamacare.

The group of WW II veterans numbered roughly 92 Mississippi Gulf Coast veterans, as well as 50 or so more veterans. They refused to let a government shutdown diminish their dream of honoring their fallen comrades.

Approximately 70 years ago they fought the enemy in Europe.  Now, they are fighting governmental bureaucracy!

In spite of the closing, the National Mall provided a solace to the veterans who remembered those whose lives were taken in battle over 70 years ago. 

It is not known who “officially” broke through the yellow tape, as they were all respectful of the situation of the moment.

U. S. Rep. Michele Bachman (R-MN) ran over to assist their celebration.  She said, “There were all these veterans standing here behind police tape, and they’re prevented from going in to see the memorial.  So about maybe eight to 12 of us members, one member had scissors and cut the tape and then we just escorted the veterans in, and there was a bagpiper along, and he led the way.”

Rep. Steven King (R-IA) also assisted in getting the gates to open for these outstanding veterans.

Join the conversation on Facebook!

The government shutdown should never, ever turn away veterans (especially WW II veterans) from visiting an un-manned memorial established specifically for them!

Regardless of political affiliation or which side a Congressman takes, veterans must be allowed to visit their memorial!

Just let the vets move about their memorial and make sure they are not violating the government shutdown law.

The guy is a complete Amateur; and utter failure, and that says it all!

This President is a failure, and will stop at nothing to prop up his presidency. Including chasing Octogenarians, nonagenarians, and Centanarians from the WWII memorial. and barricading the open space. and even covering signage of historic landmarks. and let us never forget the lock out of NIH, by Reid, and his comment,

"Now why would I want to do that?"

Comment by Don on October 6, 2013 at 8:46am

I heard on the News that Obama attempted to close down Mt. Vernon which is privately owned, and on TV they said that he did close down the Normandy Beach Cemetery in France.

Comment by Don on October 6, 2013 at 8:44am

My sister-in-law,  who is very much in the Liberal camp told me that people should not be aloud into the memorial area because they would "Create Trash" and nobody would be there to pick it up.  Or another comment was that what would happen if a person had an accident and there was nobody to help?

Amazing, the mindset of the Liberal.

Comment by Gregg Veach on October 6, 2013 at 6:01am

It is disgusting to what lengths he will go just to get his way. Open-air areas being closed down that aren't "manned" by anyone, and are "free" to the public.

I saw that the Lincoln Memorial was closed, even though it's not manned, and doesn't have gates or anything, and is generally open to the public. In the past shut downs, Memorials and the like were not shut down.

This guy is trying to make a point, but he just ends up making himself look dictatorial and tyrannical.

9 top questions for the Benghazi Select Committee

The long-awaited House Select Committee on Benghazi begins its historic open hearings today. The chair is Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a no-nonsense former federal and state prosecutor now in his second House term.

The 50-year-old Gowdy's challenges include herding GOP colleagues in a coherent investigative direction while combating the anticipated pre-election obfuscations and complaints of Democrat members eager to protect President Obama and his wannabe successor Hillary Clinton.

But the committee's most important duty is ferreting out credible answers to thousands of questions about the deadly night of 9/11/12 when four Americans died at the hands of terrorists, the numerous conflicting accounts of that night and deciphering the administration's ensuing coverup.

Anyone familiar with the sordid Benghazi story can construct their own list of compelling queries. We invite you to leave yours in the Comments below.

In compiling ours, we acknowledge the valuable help of Aaron Klein's new book -- "The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don't Want You to Know." Klein has published dozens of questions elsewhere. Here are the varied questions we find the most compelling, in no particular order.

1) What was the real purpose of the "special mission" in Benghazi that was so important and timely that Amb. Chris Stevens was sent into this most dangerous Libyan city just as the Red Cross and other countries withdrew? Was it really trans-shipping Libyan weapons to Syrian rebels, a favored cause of Secy. of State Clinton?

2) In this dangerous environment, why were repeated requests by Stevens and others for additional security ignored by Clinton's State Department in the weeks and months leading up to that night? The compound's security was deemed so inadequate it required a special waiver from Washington to continue operation. Who authorized that waiver?

In fact, despite knowledge of at least 10 terrorist training camps in the vicinity, the mission's security was actually decreased the previous month with the removal of a special ops security detail over the protest of its commander? Why?

3) Why in the world would the mission's local security have been entrusted to a local militia, the 17th of February Martyrs Brigade, with its known ties to al Qaeda affiliate Ansar al-Sharia?

4) We need to clarify this "stand down order" business. Several CIA operatives at the nearby annex say they were prevented from going to the assistance of the embattled mission by a superior named "Bob." State spokeswomen vehemently deny the claim. But in their book -- "13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi" -- the operatives say the 30-minute delay prevented the rescue of Stevens and an aide, Sean Smith.

5) Speaking of rescue, why was none attempted in Benghazi? Why were............

Minnesota's Top ObamaCare Insurer Drops Out For 2015

Minnesota's ObamaCare exchange stands apart from every other state -- and not only because its No. 1 insurer just threw in the towel. Tuesday's stunning news that PreferredOne, which enrolled 59% of the state's exchange members, won't offer subsidized ObamaCare policies in 2015 is likely related to another unique feature of the exchange that has stunted its growth potential. In 2015, well more than half of MNsure exchange subsidies won't go to

Don't Credit ObamaCare Exchanges For Uninsured Drop

The uninsured rate fell 1.3% in the first three months of this year to the lowest point since the Centers for Disease Control began tracking it in 1997. The CDC's survey, on top of others by Gallup, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Urban Institute, appears to show that ObamaCare is succeeding in its main goal of cutting the ranks of the uninsured. But the picture is far murkier than these surveys suggest. In fact, it's not
