It was bound to happen…. Putin definitely one-upped BO on Syria (our Peace Prize Preezy is the Drone King)

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been  nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

The former KGB agent has been recommended by  an activist group because he ‘actively promotes settlement of all conflicts  arising on the planet’.

His attempts to prevent a US air strike on  Syria after suspected chemical weapons attacks on civilians was also given as a  reason behind the recognition.

Despite being the main supplier of weapons to  Bashar Al-Assad’s regime, fellow politicans have rushed to his defense, with one  claiming he is ‘more worthy’ than Barack Obama.

Imagine….. Oh, Duh…. can you say Unions?

Obama: Imagine if workers could shut down a manufacturing plant just because they didn’t get what they want

Imagine it. Imagine a movement so selfish that it would sabotage the operations of a venture on which vast numbers of people depend simply to gain leverage for its own agenda. Then imagine that that movement grew in numbers to the point where it could elect its own bought-and-paid-for politicians to do its bidding.

Fear of offending Obama? More like fear of retribution …BO’s reputation as a “street thug” is well documented.

Interviews with health insurers, industry consultants, nonprofit groups and people trying to sign up for coverage suggested that the number was very low. Some companies that are offering plans on the federal site said Wednesday that no one had signed up with them.

“Very, very few people that we’re aware of have enrolled in the federal exchange,” said one insurance industry official, who like many in the industry, spoke on the condition of anonymity out of concern for possibly offending the Obama administration. “We are talking single digits.”

Admission of guilt….”Doesn’t really matter when shutdown ends, We’re Winning”……..They prefer to have the shutdown, it gives them the way to beat up “We the people” and show us how big and brave they are defending Prissy Pants-in-Chief legacy.

In a stunning admission to the Wall Street Journal, a senior administration admitted that while veterans wait for services and children wait for cancer treatments, the White House doesn’t care how long the shutdown lasts because “We are winning.”

Said a senior administration official: “We are winning…It doesn’t really matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts “because what matters is the end result.”

Now we know why Obama is threatening to veto individual pieces of funding Republicans have offered to get those veterans their services and those children their cancer treatments through the National Institute of Health. Why budge when all you care about is winning and you believe that you are?

Feel good of the day…….a reminder of who our vets really are and what they stand for…from the Canada Free Press

Perhaps power hounds Senator Harry Reid and President Barack Obama are unaware of something already proven: heroic war vets never stand down.

Just  a year and a half before Obama won the presidency, an unforgettable ‘‘Oorah Chapter’ of War Vets flooding Washington D.C. to defend their war memorial was written in indelible ink.

Still carried in the hearts of anyone there, the ‘Oorah Chapter’ took place on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2007, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the Mother of all anti-war protests, when a decades-ago massive march to the Pentagon demanded an end to the war in Vietnam, and was also being marked as the 4th anniversary of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Incredibly,  anti-war activists in Code Pink and ANSWER, with the traitorous Jane Fonda at their head, threatened to desecrate Washington war memorials during their march.

The last time anti-war activists had converged on Washington, they broke through a Capitol Hill security cordon, spray-painted the Capitol grounds, desecrated the Lone Sailor statue that stands watch at the U.S. Navy Memorial, and reportedly spat at disabled Iraq-war veteran Josh Sparling as he voiced his support for his fellow troops.

Calling it the “Mother of all Protests”, Jane Fonda, along with Cindy Sheehan and Ramsey Clark were to lead the biggest anti-war protest of all time—desecrating war memorials on their way to the Pentagon.

The Fonda-Sheehan-Clark contingent was on a roll.  Their buds the Dems controlled Congress.  Anti-American sentiment flourished around the globe.  Anti-war activists continued to tarnish the image of American troops as one of protectors to that of war mongers.

Fonda and her comrades in arms planned to begin their well-touted-by mainstream-media march at the Vietnam Wall.

“…Fifty-eight thousand names cried out in protest and America heard the call of her fallen,” wrote Kit Jarrell in Euphoric Reality.  Gathering of Eagles will be there on the 17th “to deliver a message to the flower children, 40 years overdue.”

Small Town America took a stand, standing shoulder to shoulder with veterans from groups like the Gathering of Eagles, the Nam Knights, Rolling Thunder, the POW/MIA, and veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

A Move America Forward (MAF), caravan bringing thousands of flags, homemade and store bought,  left San Francisco for Washington. “Patient school children, holding homemade flags waited curbside for the caravan to pass by.  Veterans wearing medals, school choirs sounding like singing angels and Americans from all walks of life left their kitchens and offices to be there when the MAF caravan was passing through Small Town America.  By Texas, enthused crowds were so large, a police escort led the caravan along its way.(Canada Free Press March 17, 2007)

March 17, 2007 dawned as a bitterly cold, windswept day.  But what happened in the writing of the Oorah Chapter of veterans against anti-war activists will never be forgotten.

“Ragtag by nature, Gathering of Eagles’ membership includes the wounded, both walking and in wheelchairs, the gratefully and proudly aging and the living-with-the-memory-of-lost-loved ones, brokenhearted.  Some lie awake nights worrying about loved ones still in harm’s way, but the one human emotion missing from Gathering of Eagle members is disillusion.  All because if there was any chance the touted anti-war protesters were going to desecrate war memorials, then the Gathering of Eagle members were going to be there—no matter from how far away they had to come, no matter in what shape March 17 was going to find them.”

Facing off on one side of the road against much younger activists, the veterans in Gathering of Eagles solidly stood their ground.

“One thing for anti-war protesters to hint at desecrating war memorials.  One thing for a mainstream media to remain silent when soldiers were spat upon.  Quite another to meet from the narrow distance of right across the road, the steely-eyed glint of the veterans of real wars.

Jane Fonda was a no show.  It was the day that big-talking Hollywood celebrities left Cindy Sheehan out in the cold on her own.

In the end, the war vets, many of them with wounds still visible, not only stood their ground but by sheer virtue of their courage, sent the activists away from their own Mother of All protests.

As the event played out, not all of the teared over eyes in the faces in the crowd were the result of whipping Washington winds.

32,000 Vets will be visiting the WWII War Memorial in the month of October on the Honor Flights. They are still proving to be America’s Greatest Generation.Iwo Jima

  1. Obama, Reid and their thuggish behavior ….

    ““It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

  2. Desperation……
    “And a Washington Post blogger pleaded Thursday morning with members of the public who have successfully signed up for Obamacare coverage to come forward.

    ‘As of yet, we haven’t tracked this person – or these people – down,’ the Post writer explained.T’his is not for lack of effort. Reporters here at The Washington Post and at other publications have been on the hunt for this mythical creature.'”

  3. How the hell do you shut down a forest and why?

    “To block access is … a deliberate, senseless, and mean-spirited act that demonstrates quite clearly the political goals of the Obama administration during this shutdown,” writes author Robert Zimmerman on the “Behind the Black” blog. “The administration has decided it will use its power to do as much harm as possible to the American people as it can, with the hope that this harm will cause the public to rise up and throw the Republicans out for refusing to pass the budget that Obama wanted and demanded.”

    That idea – is the federal government, in other words, holding the people’s property hostage for political gain? – has taken hold among some Americans.

    I am one of those Americans!

  4. Tricks, no Treats

    House Republicans want changes to the Obamacare law as a condition of funding the federal government in the new fiscal year

    House Democrats will try to invoke a ‘discharge petition’ to force Speaker John Boehner to call a budget vote without putting Obamacare at risk
    The idea requires collecting signatures from a majority of House members, a number that can only be reached with the help of at least 18 Republicans
    Instead of waiting the required 30 days to file their petition, Democrats will side-stepping the rules by hollowing out an older bill and dropping their funding language inside
    This trick was how Democrats passed Obamacare in the first place, scooping out a House tax-relief bill for veterans and replacing its text in the Senate with Obamacare’s language
    Democrats boast they can pull off the stunt and persuade at least 18 Republicans to defect ‘all in one day’

  5. Because… didn’t build that! BO proves what a major asshat he truly is……just evil

  6. We have interviews… vet described it

    This World War II Veteran, who fought on several fronts including North Africa, Italy, and the Battle fo the Bulge and was wounded twice, could not contain his joy at moving the barricades at the Iwo Jima Memorial:

    “That blew my mind, my God look at that, it was great, a little initiative I guess.”
    Videos at the link

    • Thank God for our vets. Sad tho, that we have to ask these heroes to fight, yet again. Read that they’ve even turned off the water to drinking fountains on the Mall. The drinking water!

      • We aren’t asking….they’ve always been willing…no matter what stage of life.
        What else could we expect from the men and women who saved the world?

  7. “As bad as the Battle of the Barrycades is in Washington, D.C., forcing WWII Vets to have to push their way past barricades at the WWII Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and Iwo Jima Memorial, what the feds did at Mount Rushmore has to be the most petty and insane of them all.”

    • But we have to remember, that even though these “pick and choose” closings stem from the White House, there are still those that will petulantly bark, with their chins stuck out, that it’s the Republicans fault. I’m surprised how many people on the Earth just make up stories that fit their pride, and don’t read at all.
      I was recently told that Boehner absconded with 64thou of campaign funds- it’s missing, he pocketed it, it’s not to be found.
      I’ve searched allover for this story, and either he’s Obamalike with his press scrubs, or the story was just made up out of this air to please the accuser’s ego.

      • it’s not ego, it’s anger and vindictiveness. Left doesn’t care if their smears are right or wrong….as long as they get what they want. That is pure petty and spite
