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.

Joe Otto

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

Comment by David Wallace on October 8, 2013 at 1:15am

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.

Social Security Trust Fund Bust In 2029, CBO Signals

Social Security's trust fund will run dry in 2029, a year faster than previously thought, according to an IBD analysis of Congressional Budget Office projections. CBO's updated financial path for Social Security runs through fiscal 2025, in which year the program's benefits are projected to exceed its tax revenues by $359 billion, up from a $73 billion shortfall in 2014, as the $2.8 trillion trust fund shrinks to $1.6 trillion.

Liam Neeson knows Americans own too many guns since he used them all in 'Taken 3'

Our more than 181,000 combined followers on Twitter (click here for that) and on Facebook (then click here to subscribe to that) know that on weekday afternoons we regularly share a selection of that evening's late-night jokes before broadcast. We publish a collection of these and other jokes when the shows are not on hiatus.

Previous collections of late-night jokes are available here.

Fallon: The RNC released its 2016 presidential primary debate schedule for Republicans with nine debates across the country. As opposed to the Democratic debates, which will just be Hillary staring at her opponents until they burst into flames.

Meyers: A Delta flight from Cleveland to New York Monday had just two passengers. And somehow, they both ended up in middle seats.

Fallon: New research suggests that men who regularly post selfies are more likely to have psychopathic tendencies. While women who regularly post selfies are more likely to be a Kardashian.

Meyers: Here's a new drinking game for Obama's State of the Union address. Instead of watching the speech, drink.

Conan: Nike announced this year it will release self-lacing tennis shoes. By the way, if you're too lazy to lace up your tennis shoes, you're really gonna hate tennis.

Meyers: Someone fired shots at Vice President Joe Biden's Delaware house. The vehicle sped off before Biden could load his finger guns and shoot back.

Fallon: Many are criticizing Obama for not joining dozens of other leaders at that Paris anti-terror march. Which explains why French people are now referring to American Cheese as "Freedom Cheese."

Letterman: Happy Birthday to our old friend Betty White. I'm told firefighters have the cake under control.

Meyers: "American Sniper" made $90 million last weekend. But director Michael Moore says snipers aren't heroes. I don't know, Michael Moore. But if you're that easy to spot, do you really want to make an enemy out of snipers?

Conan: A new Tiffany's ad features a gay couple. The Tiffany's spokesman says everyone gay or straight should have the right to grossly overpay for jewelry.

Fallon: Americans can now legally travel to Cuba as long as the visit falls under 12 categories like family trips, research or humanitarian projects. And Cubans can travel to the U.S. as long as it falls under any of the nine positions on a baseball diamond.

Meyers: A new study says women with large butts produce smarter children. Which means the popular new pickup line is: "Your son must be a genius."

Meyers: Facebook's oldest registered user turned 107 years old today. And so did AOL's youngest.

Conan: A Saudi Arabian prince says the price of oil may............

Hillary's poll numbers are collapsing

Well, that didn't take as long as expected.

In just the past month, when no one with a real life was thinking about the 2016 presidential race, Hillary Clinton's massive poll lead over every single potential Republican opponent has collapsed.

In a hypothetical match-up, her margin over Jeb Bush, the closest GOP president, was cut in half to eight points this month, 45%-37%, according to Zogby. That's down from a whopping 15-point lead in December. Similarly, the former first lady's 15-point margin over Mitt Romney slid to nine points, 46%-37%.

Still sizable margins, to be sure. But trending uncomfortably in the wrong direction even before an announcement, as Clinton goes to ground to plot her campaign, assemble staff and devise a credible rationale other than gender for why Americans should let her move back into the White House, this time in the West Wing.

Most Democrats won't take much convincing. She's her party's overwhelming heir apparent, which actually hasn't worked out too well in recent U.S. political history for Al Gore, John McCain, Romney or Hillary herself in 2008.

But she'll need to convince significant numbers of independents and even Republicans on a shifting political landscape that's been trending toward conservative states, both in the census and recent elections.

Even with veterans of the president's winning campaigns jumping over for Obama 3.0, that could be a hefty challenge given Clinton's quarter-century of public controversies; HillaryCare's website didn't fail, but that's because she didn't have one. Her brief Senate career was highlighted by nothing really.

And her four years as the well-traveled face of Obama's disastrous foreign policies that allowed Syria to decay into bloody chaos, Iraq to go it alone militarily, permitting ISIS to fester and spread, and post-Gaddafi Libya to become one large al-Qaida training camp.

Then there's the deadly Benghazi debacle with its inexplicable security lapses, still under investigation by a House Select committee.

With a swaggering Obama indicating he won't go silently into retirement, Clinton faces the tricky maneuver of separating from him enough to shed sufficient association with the failures and deceits in voters' minds without totally alienating Democrats' extreme left wing, inviting Elizabeth Warren into a divisive competition.

Did you hear Clinton's comments on Obama's hollow State of the Union? Crickets.

Then, there's Clinton's health and age. She'd be 69 by election day next year compared to a field of major Republican candidates with fresh faces who average 50 including Romney and only 47 without him.

No one has yet to announce on either side. While............
