NBC: Police Remove Vietnam
War Veterans at Memorial Wall

Weekly Standard, by John McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/5/2013 4:41:05 PM

Via William Jacobson, NBC´s affiliate in Washington, D.C. reports that police ordered tourists and Vietnam war veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to leave the memorial at one point on Friday. After one group of veterans went around the barricade, "the park ranger told them the wall was closed," NBC´s Mark Seagraves reported. "Later another group of vets showed up and moved the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists. That´s when police came and moved everyone out." The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is a black granite outdoor wall on which the names of the

In a choice between graciousness and spite, this administration always favors the latter. This president is an embarrassment to the office, petty and petulant.

The DC police have had quite a week.
Shooting an unarmed woman with a baby in the car, and removing Viet Nam Vets from their memorial.
When innocents were being killed at the Navy Yard, they were ordered to stand down.

If any veteran says " I will vote for a Democrat in 2014", he or she should be "counseled" by the nearest VFW or Amercan Legion Post with pictures like these.

It is difficult to see how any vet can fail to recognize what disrespect they are getting from this administration.

I agree #10!! Wasn`t McCain`s campaign slogan `Fight! Fight!! Fight!!!`? Why isn`t he out there with the Vets risking arrest? Perhaps he is afraid of another beating by his imaginary captors. In fact, the GOP is missing yet another golden opportunity to score points with the American public by standing up and fighting for what is right.

Fools, all of them.

They´ll pay police to keep the monuments closed, but not to keep them open. They even order some memorials to close that don´t receive funds from government coffers, and few, if any, among the mainstream press raise a stink over it.

Much like the ´fiscal cliff´ and the ´sequester´, this ´shutdown´ is artificial and arbitrary -- manufactured by Liberal pols whose spin on it is echoed by the Liberal press.

Notice that all of these stories only appear in publications such as the The Weekly Standard, Brietbart, etc? The mainstream media is diligently looking the other way to protect Obama. The Republicans, if they have any desire to get Americans on their side, have to promote these stories of the Left´s pettiness and vindictiveness by actively publicizing these events. They need to encourage folks to post pictures on Facebook, Twitter, and every media channel that they can. NBC, CBS, NBC, CNN, NPR, PBS, BBC, and Hollywood will not help them--they have to actively get out on a Sunday and tell these stories to the Sunday shows--otherwise, they will continue to lose.

We see that they haven´t changed at all. The left keeps urinating on Vietnam vets. This time they shouldn´t take it. We should not stand idly by and allow them to take it yet again from these worms. I´ve heard that there is supposed to be a veterans march on Washington next Sunday. If it´s true, as many of us as can go should stand by our brothers and sisters.

Anyone who thinks this is a blunder, or just bad optics, is delusional. Obama hates us. He hates America and he hates Americans. So does his wife (for the FIRST time in her life she was proud of her country???). Not only does he no longer try to hide his hatred for us, he is now going out of his way to display it.

Closing the WWII memorial? Seriously?
Closing the Iwo Jima memorial? Seriously?
Closing the Viet Nam memorial? Seriously?

It´s a mistake, a big one, a dangerous one, to treat Obama [like so many R´s do] as "another liberal Democrat, if further Left than most."

It´s a mistake, a big one, a dangerous one, to be "collegial" with him. To think there´s some "mutually-agreeable" place between what Obama wants and what has been "normal," let alone properly-Constitutional Rule of Law.

It´s a mistake, a big one, a dangerous one, to regard Obama as "petty" or "nasty." He is Evil. Hateful. Out not to prevail, but to destroy, to destroy because he can. He wields power because that´s his one internalized value, his one psychically-rewarding behavior.

At most, his words are mere tools serving the exercise of power. They mean nothing to him. He lies when and on subjects where it isn´t necessary [a little like the Clintons]. Ignore it.

What Obama is is exposed in what Obama does. Here is what Obama is -- a power-mad hater of America, in all its historic and traditional and exceptional natures. And the power he wields he uses against you, against me, against our kids and grandkids, against our veterans [and not just at the Memorials], to smash the accumulated value of our decades of honest work, to continually reduce our military strength, to destroy alliances with free nations, to divide and divide again, setting takers against producers, creating more and more dysfunctional dissatisfieds.

And yes, oh yes, race is part of it. From his side, not ours.

He wants the damage he is intentionally doing to be irreparable. It will be only if we give up. I will never. And you? And you?

This is what government shutdown looks like when Obama is president .
When some Republicans argued that shutting down the government to try and defund Obamacare
was a lost cause ,
they were called the Surrender Caucus and wimps.
Sarah Palin told Republicans to woman up and shut down the government.
Hannity said this was the hill to die on and if it cost Republicans the House, so be it.
Rush said Republicans were too scared and frightened to shut down the government.
July 30: Republicans shouldn´t be so afraid of a government shutdown, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) argued Tuesday morning.
Cruz called fears of a shutdown DC cocktail chatter.
“There are some Democrats, some in the media, even some Republicans, who portray a shutdown as … a horrible calamity."
“That happens every single week on the weekend. Saturdays and Sundays
we see temporary, partial government shutdowns and the world doesn’t end,” Cruz said.
Mark Levin echoed the same sentiment.
August 20 Jim DeMint said
" that any Republican who won’t agree to shut down the government in an attempt to
scrap health care reform should be thrown out of office next November."
They all got what they demanded , despite the fact that everyone knew that Democrats control the Senate
by 10 seats and Obama would never sign a fantasy bill defunding Obamacare.
The whining looks ridiculous.
Were these guys asleep the last 5 years ?
Did they actually think Obama was going to play nice ?
The " Shut er down !! " Caucus gave him
the power and he´s going to beat everyone over the head with it.
Obama has taken full advantage of the shutdown
and he will continue
to use every means possible to punish as many innocent people as possible.
Who other than Cruz, Limbaugh, DeMint ,
Hannity and Levin didn´t see this train wreck coming ?
The reality is that after all the unnecessary closures and pain ,
Obamacare will still be the law of the land.

Sorry, #34, but you have got it all wrong.

The visibility that Cruz and Lee have brought not only to the health Care issue, but to the petty, mean-spirited attitude of the Obama administration, is a critical and important issue to the American people. These are nasty, unnecessary actions to close the memorials and National Parks and to harm veterans.

Why, tell me, can´t the Miramar Air show go forward, when it raises money for military families? Why can!t our military watch the baseball and football games when you KNOW that Obama will be watching when he is not golfing. Why are the Commisaries closed on the bases, literally denying food to families?!!

He "hurts" people because he can, and it is better to have it out in the open than behind the smoke screen of the IRS and other federal agencies.

re my #33: Thanks for the many clicks.

Because -- "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace."

But also -- "I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means."
~~ John Adams

It´s the light that drew the Honor Flight Veterans to the Memorials. To that light Obama is blind.

In the Arab world throwing a shoe is considered an insult, and George W. Bush famously had one hurled at him during a Baghdad press conference in 2008.

The missing Malaysia Airlines plane was ´thrown around like a fighter jet´ just after it lost contact with the authorities in a bid to dodge radar, Malaysian military investigators believe. Flight MH370, which disappeared more than a month ago en route to Beijing, is thought to have climbed to heights of 45,000ft - 10,000ft above its normal altitude - before plummeting to just below 5,000ft. The new lead in the investigation comes as the methodical search being carried out in the Indian Ocean continues amid fears that the jet´s black box may have run out of battery.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country."

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama on Saturday for either not understanding or deliberately disrespecting the Constitution. "We have a president who doesn´t understand or just chooses to disrespect our Constitution," Palin said on Fox News´ Cashin In with host Eric Bolling. Obama has unilaterally changed immigration, health care, and welfare laws, among others, according to Palin, and she said that he has sent a message with his actions that an elite crew will run the government as they see fit instead of "We the People." She also said there needs to be "new energy" in government instead of more

Well, that didn´t take long. As my colleague Edward Malnick reports, the first gay Church of England priest – a canon, no less – today married his boyfriend. Canon Jeremy Pemberton, 58, a divorced hospital chaplain and father of five, wed his long-term partner Laurence Cunnington, 51. We´re not told where, but obviously it wasn´t in an C of E church. That´s against the law. But they may well be able to have their marriage blessed in church because that´s only "against the rules" as opposed to illegal. Campaigners predicted that Canon Pemberton would be the first of many. I think

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

The departure of Kathleen Sebelius from President Barack Obama’s cabinet removes a focal point for criticism over Obamacare’s troubled rollout, right at a moment when the White House can blunt attacks with enrollment numbers that exceeded targets. Senate confirmation hearings on the president’s choice to succeed Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell, will give Republicans days of media exposure for their criticism of a program that remains unpopular. Those hearings will now be held months ahead of midterm congressional elections, helping diminish the impact on voters. Sebelius’s departure also addresses demands from some Democrats for a change

BUNKERVILLE -- The gathering of rancher Cliven Bundy´s cattle in northeast Clark County has been stopped by the director of the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy is meeting this morning with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie to discuss a possible solution to his dispute with the BLM. Metro Officer Jesse Roybal confirmed that Gillespie was in the Bunkerville area this morning to meet with Bundy. The BLM had been using contract cowboys to round up Bundy´s 900 head of cattle that have been grazing over 600,000 square acres in northeast Clark County for more than 20 years without his payment of grazing fees.

Hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens are getting shocking letters in their mailboxes instead of tax refund checks – nastygrams informing them that the federal government has seized their money to repay debts their parents decades-old debts that they never settled. In some cases, they´re debts the parents never knew they had. And no one warned their children. The 2008 Farm Bill included a single line that made it possible, allowing the government for the first time to hunt down individual taxpayers who have owed Uncle Sam money for more than ten years. If the debtor is deceased, according to the Federal Trade

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
