God Bless Our Veterans!

From WND: Obama behind ‘barrycades’ at WWII monument The Obama administration has decided to block access to public memorials on the National Mall as a result of the government shutdown. The decision is similar to the cancellation of White House tours when the sequester cuts took effect. On Monday, the first day of the government shutdown, a number of veterans showed up at the World War II memorial to find access blocked by barricades, despite the fact the memorial is a public space open at all times with very little oversight from the Park Police. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., issued a statement blaming … Continue reading

Dems Leave Before Hearing Testimony from Parents on Benghazi

From Breitbart and The Blaze: U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, revealed that Democrats excused themselves from a Thursday hearing on Benghazi before the family members of the slain American heroes testified. It is unclear why Democrats were not interested in hearing what Patricia Smith, the mother of slain information management officer Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, had to say. Issa tweeted a photo on Thursday showing the empty side of the room where Democrats are normally seated. The only Democrats who stuck around … Continue reading

Another Mass Shooting, Another Liberal Democrat Nutjob.

Since it seems like EVERY time there is one of these outrages, the LAW-ABIDING, LEGAL gun-owners, especially if they are (GASP) conservative, are automatically BLAMED for these senseless attacks. And, just as often, we find just the OPPOSITE is true. Such as the case here.   Aaron Alexis, Democrat, Liberal, and now, MASS MURDERER. Aaron Alexis, mass murderer, and BIG liberal. Approved by mass murderers 3 to 1.   On Monday, the nation was rocked YET AGAIN with news of another mass shooting, this time at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. Just as predictable, the leftist lamestream media was SALIVATING … Continue reading

Kennedy in the Benghazi Hot Seat Now

From Breitbart News: Benghazi Oversight Report Asks Why Patrick Kennedy Was Not Held Accountable A staff report prepared for Rep. Darrell Issa and released today finds numerous failings in the ARB report on Benghazi released last year. The new report overturns some of the conclusions of the official ARB report. It finds that Under Secretary of State Patrick Kennedy, who was not criticized in the ARB report, should have been held accountable.               The new report is based on public statements but also on transcripts of numerous interviews undertaken since the release of the … Continue reading

A Sunday Feel Good Story – Revised

How to be “Presidential” in retrospect I haven’t seen our current pResident doing this, have you? I’m not saying Bush was perfect–as we well know he was not–but to respect our armed forces in this way and ALL ways is what we need to do each time we see a soldier…tell them “thank you” whenever and wherever. They’ve earned it. 1. Look them in the eye and give them a firm handshake. No one appreciates a firm handshake more than a soldier. 2. If they prefer not to shake hands… …then a chest bump will do. Just make sure you do duck … Continue reading

The Day the Cavalry Didn’t Come

In an exclusive interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, former Deputy Chief of Mission in Libya, Gregory Hicks recalled being told of the death of then U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens in Benghazi last year, characterizing it as the “saddest moment” in his career. Hicks – who had a brief phone conversation only hours before with Stevens before the line went dead — was informed of his death by Libya’s prime minister. “He just says, ‘I’m very sorry, Greg, to tell you this, but our friend Chris has passed on.’ I think those were his words. There was deep remorse … Continue reading

A Sunday Feel Good Story

Old Guy and a Bucket of Shrimp It happened every Friday evening, almost without fail, when the sun resembled a giant orange and was starting to dip into the blue ocean. Old Ed came strolling along the beach to his favorite pier. Clutched in his bony hand was a bucket of shrimp. Ed walks out to the end of the pier, where it seems he almost has the world to himself. The glow of the sun is a golden bronze now. Everybody’s gone, except for a few joggers on the beach. Standing out on the end of the pier, Ed … Continue reading
