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.

If GOP Wins Congress, What Are Its 2015 Priorities?

There is no Republican Contract with America in 2014 or plan for the first 100 days if the party can regain control of Congress. For the most part, the GOP has been content to turn the battle for the Senate into a referendum on President Obama, while Democratic candidates have tried their best to distance themselves from the White House. Expectations are modest for what Republicans can get done with at most a slim Senate majority

Homegrown terror strikes next door in Canada

A second deadly attack in Canada this week has delivered the tragic message to America's closest neighbor and trading partner that the deadly war with terror has suddenly arrived there.

Weeks after ISIS called for lone-wolf attacks by any means necessary in allied countries including Canada, a gunman Wednesday shot a guard in the back at Canada's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Minutes later that gunman or an accomplice entered the main building of Parliament in Ottawa. A prolonged gunfight ensued and the gunman was killed.

The capital's downtown, directly adjacent to the federal complex of buildings, was put in lock-down.

Police later identified the dead gunman as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a convert to Islam formerly known as Michael Joseph Hall, with a long record of drug and robbery offenses.

In a nationwide address Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a conservative who warned weeks ago that terrorism might come to Canada soon, said:

"In the days to come, we will learn more about the terrorist and any accomplices he may have had. But this week's events are a grim reminder that Canada is not immune to the types of terrorist attacks we have seen elsewhere in the world. Let there be no misunderstanding: We will not be intimidated. Canada will never be intimidated."

The "week's events" he referenced began with a Monday attack just south of Montreal when another Canadian Islam convert ran over two members of the Canadian Forces, killing one. The convert, whose passport had recently been seized as he attempted to travel to Turkey, was shot and killed by police.

Besides being by far the United States' largest trading partner with in excess of $1.5 billion a day crossing the largely undefended border, Canada has been a loyal coalition partner of its southern neighbor. One-hundred-fifty-eight Canadian military members have died alongside Americans in the long war in Afghanistan.

And Harper has also joined Obama's jerry-built coalition to combat ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

House Speaker John Boehner expressed solidarity with Canadian parliamentarians, many of whom had barricaded themselves in meeting rooms during the shootout in the marbled hallways. Boehner said:

"The world is growing more complex and dangerous by..............

Major consumer media study finds liberals far less tolerant than normal people

How do you stack up in a national sampling of political news consumers -- your sources, habits and friends?

A fascinating, major new survey by the Pew Research Journalism Project is examining political polarization in the United States of 2014. The report comes just two weeks before a crucial midterm election that will be widely read as a six-year verdict on Barack Obama's performance and agenda, whatever that is today.

Here are just some of the project's numerous intriguing findings:

* Conservatives tend to flock around one major news source for their news of government and politics -- Fox News -- perhaps because the list of known conservative media consists of Fox News and Fox News. Also Fox News.

* Liberals draw information from a wider variety of media and express far more trust in more major media than do conservatives. Perhaps because there are more liberal-oriented media to trust.

Liberals are much less tolerant than conservatives of political opinions differing from their own, especially on social media, more consistently choosing to Unfriend, Block, Mute or sever friendships with those whose politics they disagree with.

*  Overall, the most-trusted news media was The Economist, though it was recognized by a small sector of respondents. It was followed in trust by another British-based outlet, the BBC. Take that, MSM!

* The least-trusted source overall was BuzzFeed, followed by the radio programs of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Ed Schultz, who was tied as untrusted with Al Jazeera America. Daily Kos was in there too.

* Pew's list of media outlets that were more trusted than distrusted across the political spectrum was lead by the Wall Street Journal. Others more trusted than distrusted to a lesser degree included ABC News, USA Today and Google News.

*  The Center's list of media about equally trusted and distrusted includes the Drudge Report, Daily Show, Huffington Post and Breitbart.

*  Media generally trusted overall include Fox News, Bloomberg, Yahoo News, Washington Post and The Guardian.

Fox's dominance can be explained, for instance, by..............
