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.

Sincerely,

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.

Rand Paul has an idea who'd make a good GOP nominee in '16

Rand Paul has an ideal profile in mind for the presidential nominee of the Republican Party in 2016:

He would be a rookie U.S. senator. From the middle of the country. Best-known as a real good talker. With no executive experience whatsoever. No great legislative accomplishments either. But he would have a blossoming middle-aged ambition, access to the national media out of Washington and be adored by his party's hard-core base.

If that sounds like Rand Paul to you, bingo. Trouble is, that's also an identical description of one Barack Obama when he set his sights on the White House two-plus years before the 2008 presidential election.

"People do want a change," Paul said at one campaign stop this week. But is Rand Paul the change we've been waiting for? Will America fall for its historic first opthamologist president the way it went for the first African American?

Is America prepared to elect another consecutive executive neophyte after enduring all the incompetencies, scandals, gaffes and divisions of Paul's equivalent on the left-wing?

We may be about to find out. Paul, a 51-year-old father of three, has been one of the more aggressive -- and sought after -- personalities on the Republican side this midterm campaign cycle.

He's been to 32 states, by his own account. This week alone he's been in Kansas, Michigan, today in Pennsylvania and winding up back home in Kentucky helping reelect Mitch McConnell, the man who wasn't all that happy four years ago about Paul's political rise in the first place.

Campaigning for other candidates when you're not on any ballot is a great way to make connections, meet donors, collect political debts and gain exposure you'd never get back home.

John McCain did it from 2001 onward and won the GOP nomination as heir apparent in 2008. John Boehner's been doing it this year, trying to enlarge his House majority and caucus support to stay Speaker.

Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal and Jeb Bush, even............

Why Tuesday Is GOP's Last Chance To Win Senate

The battle for the Senate appears to be tilting the Republicans' way, but a number of close races leaves the possibility that the party will come up short -- as it did in 2010 and 2012. Yet a narrow defeat this time wouldn't be just another opportunity deferred until the next election; it might feel more like the closing of a door. While the GOP is expected to gain seats in the House, cementing its majority, a failure to take the

Obama's base crumbles: Youths, Latinos slip away

Heading into the last hectic weekend of the 2014 midterm election campaign, a couple of revealing findings stick out that are ominous for Democrats:

Young 'Hope & Change' voters, who formed the core of Barack Obama's 2008 victory, have drifted away from their guy. In other words, they are growing up.

Second, Latinos, another leg on the aging Obama support stool, are flaking off too.

Besides his vigorous fundraising efforts, the Democrat president has spent much of his campaign effort this year working on his party's election day turnout, historically a flaccid factor in liberal midterm balloting. But that may not help much because the base he's trying to turn out has changed.

Conservatives, on the other hand, have a traditional stake in turning out. This time it's especially driven by opposition to Obama policies and pushing GOP candidates to control six more seats to control the Senate, stall Obama's remaining liberal agenda and and help Harry Reid find his way to Sunny Acres.

Among the youths surveyed by Harvard's Institute of Politics, a majority voted for Obama in 2012 and 64% said there's at least a 50-50 chance of their voting next Tuesday. But 43% consider the country headed in the wrong direction. They disapprove of everybody's job performance in Washington: Obama (53%), Democrats in Congress (60%) and Republicans there (72%).

They disapprove of Obama's job on the economy (60%), ObamaCare (57%), the deficit (65%), foreign policy (60%) and immigration (61%).

But -- and here's the key -- youths who voted in 2008 went for Obama by 34 points and 23 points in 2012. Even in 2010, a really bad year for Obama's party, youths supported Democrats 55%-43%.

This time, however, that same cohort will be voting for a GOP-controlled Congress 51%-47%.

As for Latinos, an increasingly important sector of the electorate, the new ABC News-Washington Post Poll shows they are just fine with Republicans taking control of both houses on Capitol Hill.

Fifty percent say it doesn't matter which party controls Congress. Worse for Obama, now out on his longest campaign swing of the cycle, 30% say it would be a good thing if Republicans win control of the Senate. That's twice the size of those who say bad thing. Bueno.
