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.

What if Obama appeared at a Democratic campaign rally and people left?

What if the president of the United States came to speak at your campaign rally and no one cared? In fact, a lot of his party loyalists walked out as soon as the nation's chief executive stepped to the podium.

That's just what happened to the one-time golden-tongued Barack Obama Sunday in Maryland when he joined Democrat gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown.

Hard to believe -- right? -- because Obama always seems to be campaigning. But it was actually his first real campaign appearance this cycle. With his current high disapproval ratings on so many issues including credibility, Obama's not exactly this fall's Homecoming King in political popularity.

The 100 other Obama appearances were party fundraisers. It reportedly takes a bit more selling, but some folks are still willing to shell out up to $100,000 to hear Obama's canned 15-minute funder. They all sound like political speeches, to be sure, because he's always bragging on how robust he's made the economy.

And how so many of the nation's problems that have worsened during his endless watch would be solved if only Republicans weren't blocking even more government spending. Obama took a brief break from his partisan attacks in his weekly remarks, which he devoted to promising Americans that "Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch."

Here are some of the more inspirational excerpts from Obama's 25 minutes of Sunday remarks:

"You've got to vote.....There are no excuses. The future is up to us. Go find your friends to vote. Get your cousin to vote. Get your uncle to vote.....Maryland, we have made progress. Don't let folks say otherwise."

Speaking of broken records, Obama added: "Now, look I believe that Republicans are patriots. I think they love their country. They love their family. But they are a broken record."

By the time Obama finished, the crowd was considerably smaller, a far cry from the days when audience members would shout: "We love you, Barack!" There was one heckler, but he didn't yell: "You're boring, Barack!"

In fact, Brown may not need much Obama "help." Polls give him a seven-point lead over his Republican opponent, Larry Hogan. Obama's next campaign stop, however, was different.

From Maryland, the president took Air Force One to Chicago for another appearance with Illinois' embattled Democrat incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn.

Quinn, you'll remember, was the nobody lieutenant governor who..............

GOP: 'Aren't we tired of the way Washington fails to listen to us?'

House Candidate Lee Zeldin of New York gives the Republican Party's Weekly Remarks

Hello, I'm Lee Zeldin, and I'm the Republican candidate for New York's First Congressional District here on Long Island, a special place where I was born and raised.

Let me start by saying that our hearts go out to all those affected by the Ebola outbreak. Right now, the president and his administration need to be taking every necessary step to protect the American people. (Scroll to bottom for video of these remarks.)

Today, I just want to share with you the most important reason I'm running for Congress. There are two of them actually, and they're our beautiful twin daughters, Arianna and Mikayla. They inspire my wife, Diana, and I every day to do all we can to provide them and their generation with more opportunities than we had.

That's just the American way, but that is not the path we find ourselves on right now.

Our government spends more than it takes in, fails to keep basic promises to our veterans, and squanders opportunity after opportunity to create good-paying jobs. Instead of courage, we see caution and inaction.

Aren't we tired of the way Washington fails to listen to us?

This November 4th is our chance to send a message that the challenges we face can't wait. That it's time to turn things back in the right direction.

We can start by focusing on creating good-paying, private sector jobs. Too often in today's economy, people find themselves taking second, third jobs, and that's still not enough to make ends meet. We can do better, and help families get ahead, not just get by.

We need to fight for our veterans who fought for us. We can't rest until we know the VA will be able to provide the first-rate, 21st-century care our men and women in uniform deserve.

We need to repeal and replace ObamaCare with solutions that cost less and guarantee more freedom, certainty and security.

And we have to improve our education system, to put parents in charge of their kids' education, and give every child an opportunity to succeed.

I know we can do this. It's going to take hard work, tough decisions, and embracing the duty we all share to protect and pass on the blessings on which our country was built.

That's why I proudly served as a U.S. Army paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division, why I still serve as a major in the Army Reserves, and why I'm running for Congress now.

Together, we can end the dysfunction, and restore the American Dream for our kids and grandkids. They're what this is all about. Thank you for listening, and have a great weekend. ####

More Americans say their midterm vote is opposing Obama

Ebola and Ebola fear spread as Obama continued fundraising

Obama declares: 'Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch'

President Obama's weekly remarks

Today, I want to take a few minutes to speak with you-directly and clearly-about Ebola: what we're doing about it, and what you need to know. Because meeting a public health challenge like this isn't just a job for government. All of us-citizens, leaders, the media-have a responsibility and a role to play.

This is a serious disease, but we can't give in to hysteria or fear-because that only makes it harder to get people the accurate information they need. We have to be guided by the science. We have to remember the basic facts.

First, what we're seeing now is not an "outbreak" or an "epidemic" of Ebola in America. We're a nation of more than 300 million people. To date, we've seen three cases of Ebola diagnosed here-the man who contracted the disease in Liberia, came here and sadly died; the two courageous nurses who were infected while they were treating him.

Our thoughts and our prayers are with them, and we're doing everything we can to give them the best care possible. Now, even one infection is too many. At the same time, we have to keep this in perspective. As our public health experts point out, every year thousands of Americans die from the flu.

Second, Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It's not transmitted through the air like the flu. You cannot get it from just riding on a plane or a bus. The only way that a person can contract the disease is by coming into direct contact with the bodily fluids of somebody who is already showing symptoms.

I've met and hugged some of the doctors and nurses who've treated Ebola patients. I've met with an Ebola patient who recovered, right in the Oval Office. And I'm fine.

Third, we know how to fight this disease. We know the protocols. And we know that when they're followed, they work. So far, five Americans who got infected with Ebola in West Africa have been brought back to the United States-and all five have been treated safely, without infecting healthcare workers.

And this week, at my direction, we're stepping up our.............
