This is unbelievable. Not only has Obama tried to keep World War II veterans from paying their respects at the WWII Memorial, but now he’s closed the military cemetery in Normandy and tourists are being turned away. I really just don’t have the words right now:

normandy

NEW YORK POST — Tourists travelling to Omaha Beach to pay their respects to the 9,387 military dead at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial will find it closed, a victim of the U.S. government’s partial shutdown.

The site overlooking the D-Day invasion beaches is one of 24 U.S. military cemeteries overseas that have closed to visitors since Monday. Ten more cemeteries in in France, as well as others in various European countries as well as Mexico, Panama, Tunisia and the Philippines, will remain closed for the duration of the shutdown.

The cemeteries are maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission, set up after the First World War. Nearly 125,000 U.S. servicemen and women are buried at its cemeteries, and an additional 94,000 are commemorated on tablets of the missing.

    Words fail me as well.

    I don’t suppose it is any good to ask the French to take over for the time being?
    Anyway, I’ve just sent an e-mail to the British Legion, who is concerned with all affairs to do with our British veterans. They may perhaps give me information as to whom to write to. After all, it wasn’t just your GIs who stormed the beaches of Normandy – why should our vets be affeced if they want to visit?

    • Sentinel

      God bless you mum. You’re a patriot – thank you.

      • colliemum

        If there’s anything which makes me really incandescent, then it’s seeing our vets treated like dirt.
        I’m always hard pressed not to cry over our lovely old vets when they collect for the British Legion.

        • Sentinel

          I feel exactly the same way.

    This is endless!
    Obama now closes Military commissaries BUT
    HIS PRECIOUS GOLF COURSE remains OPEN!

    • Sentinel

      Dang… that is actually pretty rotten.

    • Bobbi

      And they have to throw food away because no one is able to buy it… is there something wrong with this picture.

  • Sentinel

    The sick thing about Demoncraps and liberals is there’s no bottom… they never stop getting lower and lower and lower. Maybe it’s that they’re closer to satan that way? Regardless, I’m constantly amazed at how nasty and depraved they are and how far they’ll go to intentionally cause pain to others. They are the most un-American, ungrateful, belligerent group of lowlife malcontents I’ve ever encountered. Going out of their way to hurt Americans… inflicting the most amount of sensational pain… and then blaming Republicans. That’s psychotic and perverted.

    • Nathan Thurman

      How are the GOP any different, or are you leaving out Communists like Boehner, Bush, Bush, Nixon, etc.? The problem I am seeing in America is The Two Party System. For the global elite and the politicians, the two party system has been genius. I will say, the GOP is a little better, but not by a broad margin.

      • Sentinel

        You have a valid point. I despise the GOP establishment. Boehner, McConnell, Cantor, Peter King, McCain, Graham… all these people ARE the problem. So yes, there is indeed a deep divide within the GOP and folks like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and a handful of others are fighting for the very soul of the Republican party – and I support them.
        However, I am now and have been since 2008, an Independent (I was formerly a part of the Republican party… then I began to pay attention and educate myself). I firmly support a 3rd party at this point. Personally, I would support a tea-party, teavangelical, conservative party with some Libertarian tenants and would tentatively call it the ‘Freedom Party’. If it was based on the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, free market, Fair or flat tax, etc., then I’m all for it.
        Good point. Thanks for the catch.

  • 3d81

    look at the positive side
    this is just a taste of what it feels like when your freedoms are taken away from you.
    Hopefully people will get off their stupid tv boxes and start paying attention to who they are voting for.

    • steprock

      Yes, the tv watchers are being told to blame the Republicans.

  • Sentinel

    Let me add one more observation… Notice how this despot targets facilities or memorials that hold a great deal of emotional sentiment? He’s manipulating people and preying on their emotions. How is that not evil, pure and simple?

    • Laurel

      Oh it is evil. they guy is an SOB and people need to wake up!

      • Zabar

        Wow. I take a break from political rants and the haters still confirm me being right! Anyone who hates Barack Obama IS a racist, bigoted, black-hating slime!

        Obama is a pragmatist, not an ideologue. And to claim that the overall nature of the opposition to him is no different than that directed at Gore or Kerry you have to space out a great many pretty bizarre efforts on the Right to paint Obama as a scary “other” — some combination of Kenyan, commie, anti-Christ, and Manchurian Candidate.

        Seriously, now the racist right’s new game is Blame the black man of EVERYTHING wrong in America?

        Lost your job? Obama is to blame!

        Your dog died? Obama is to blame!

        Your car broke down? Obama is to blame!

        You got beat up for no reason? Obama is to Blame! Seriously, the left NEVER blamed Bush for EVERYTHING wrong in America, you racist scumbags even blame him for people’s deaths!

        Any president “can” be impeached but there are no valid grounds on which to try to impeach President Obama.

        Despite the vitriol directed against him from the Republicans for doing so, winning the presidential elections in 2008 and 2012 can’t constitute grounds for impeachment.

        LIARS – The undeniable fact is that Obama has not closed anything. Obama has not vetoed the budget because he never even got to his desk. The House won’t vote for a clean (budget) bill, and the Senate won’t accept anything but a clean bill. So, at this point its is between John Boehner and Harry Reid.

        Is Barack Obama an Anti-American?No He’s trying to hard to help middle class and the poor and lets face it he’s President and as President mistakes happen but that doesn’t make him anti American

        Is Barack Obama an evil man? No I truly feel he’s trying to help the Economy and the people of the USA

        Is Barack Obama a Marxist? No telling people they must get Insurance or trying to get Universal healthcare isn’t marxist its smart look at Canada,England and France…it works there

        Is Barack Obama a Muslim?He’s a christian He said In an interview with the evangelical periodical Christianity Today, Obama stated: “I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian. I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life.His Father was a Muslim but he only met him once or twice in his life

        Is Barack Obama a homosexual?Only he knows but he is married to a women with 2 kids

        Is Barack Obama a traitor to America?No if he was congress would have him impeached already

        Is Barack Obama a Communist? LMAO no he’s not all the Communist talk comes over him wanting people to have to get health Insurance.LOL you are required to get car Insurance also does that make REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT REAGAN A COMMUNIST for signing that bill….NO

        Can Barack Obama be impeached? WHY???

        Is Barack Obama destroying America? No he’s simply trying to fix the mess HE WAS HANDED.Every Expert said that it would take 10 years to fix the mess Bush created….its only been 5 years.

        Does Barack Obama hate America? We’ve been through this no

        Is Barack Obama a Dictator? No he’s a President it is vertually impossible for him to be a dictator he has no true power he can suggest people make certain votes for a bill or ASK congress to declare war but he can’t rule like a Dictator
        Calling the POTUS a POS and a fraud seems to the usual calling call for you right-wing racists and bigots like you!

        Only a crass and repulsive person would refer to someone occupying the office of the President of the United States in such a vulgar manner. Shame on you.

    • deTocqueville1

      That is how despots destroy the morale of the people.

  • Laurel

    I hope he keeps squeezing…yeah you read that right…because in doing so he is tightening his own noose.

  • Yazz55

    Never let a good crisis go to waste. They are getting away with crap like this that couldn’t otherwise be done.

    The more I see things like this, the more apparent it is that the regime wanted this shutdown. I don’t profess to know whats coming next. But it won’t surprise me either.

  • rjcylon

    And this is supposed to HURT the republicans, correct?

  • Joengima

    Why has no one called out this administration on these?

    • lawngren

      Because calling him out is completely ineffective. obozo has no shame. What is needed is action. Nothing less will get the job done. And no one wants to start it.

  • Dukehoopsfan

    Just when you think that the assh-le in the white house could not get any lower he outdoes himself. I suppose that the next step is to order the American flags removed overr the Capitol and the white house since we cannot afford to have anyone raise them.

    • colliemum

      Don’t give him any ideas!
      He’s well capable of that.

      • TexasPGRRider

        Xactly what I was about to say, Mum…AMEN, Sister

    • BHliberty

      He’s already trying to spark fear in the Stock Market and after another one of his idiotic speeches, the market dropped and is now off over 180 points! It’s deliberate! He will then blame the Rs! But I ain’t buying it!

    • ladyjk

      You’re right on that, they are probably all out blocking entrances to memorials and parks. I thought he was lower than low when he wouldn’t let school children visit their White House while we financed his kids being escorted around the world on expensive trips with our tax dollars.

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanDuckie

    What the hell! I AM ASKING ONE MORE TIME…. Is there not ONE freaking person in our congress who has the guts to physically remove this traitorous, dis respectful piece of crap from office?! HE HAS NO right to do what he’s done and no ounce of respect has he earned for the office he holds! GET HIM OUT!

    • ladyjk

      He has done many things that are treasonous, but with his crook as DOJ and the senate run by dirty Harry along with information controlled (Roberts) and liberal Supreme Court there is no way to enforce the laws. If there were honest men in key positions Holder would have been gone long ago and charges would have been brought against Obama. The lies, the illegal activities, the coverups, the obstruction of justice with crooks in the White House, in the judicial system and in the Senate our government has become worse than a banana republic. In a banana republic they at least acknowledge what their government is. I wonder if the 42 czars Obama appointed and all their staffs are considered essential–I’ll bet they are still on the job. they are probably the ones erecting barriers to our public taxpayer-funded lands. I am so not proud of what my country has become.

    • 1776 Freedom Fighter

      Amen, Duckie; I just learned of Obummer’s repugnant act via your tweet from the Constitutional Freedom Party. Of course I was inspired to retweet this RS link to others!

      I visited the Normandy cemetery years ago, and was moved to tears. It was a humbling event to gaze out at the vast landscape of young lives lost. It knocked me to my knees, and will stay as a haunting image for the rest of my life . . .

    • TexasPGRRider

      There`s supposed to be some things coming together, but I`ve heard that for a few years now. I`ve done some research that hints the military has the authority to arrest a Treasonous President without Congress, but I`m Still searchin` for the Truth on the issue….

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanDuckie

        Let me know what you find brother Texas!

        • TexasPGRRider

          You BETCHA

        • Mean Green Beret

          I suspect it would be the Sergeant at Arms. The secret service would probably work in collaboration with the Federal Marshall’s office. If the military were to become involved it would be considered a coup. I’ve read that he would have to be impeached and essentially “out of office” before they could officially arrest him.

          Hell,I don’t know. I just blow sh*t up.

    • Nukeman60

      It is a truly heinous creature that can cause our dear sweet Duckie to go from maligning him as merely “dear leader” to “traitorous, disrespectful POS” all in a mere 5 years.

      He truly needs to be removed, either by an act of God (are you listening, dear Lord) or by an act of the People. I vote for the pitchforks and torches path. The good Lord would want us to have free will in this.

      • Zabar

        Sad: Racist Right attacks Obama for stating opinion about Washington Redskins!

        So the President is NOT allowed to have an opinion or state said opinion? It seems like it to the racists here, otherwise this is NO big deal!

        Wow. I take a break from political rants and the haters still confirm me being right! Anyone who hates Barack Obama IS a racist, bigoted, black-hating slime!

  • DHardy

    Obama was not raised here. His parents clearly had issues with America. He never served in our military and in fact their is good evidence he never signed up for selective service but recently forged a Selective Service Care as if he registered…They were no better at forging that then they were his Birth Certificate. Obama isn’t an American, He isn’t Christian, He isn’t African American and not one ounce of African American Blood runs through his body. Yet he has exploited our country and our laws and lied to get social services, affirmative action and foreign aid and from an early age. We have all seen the disrespect and contempt Obama for those that serve this country. From watching as they are slaughtered on Video to having them holding umbrellas for him. Disposing of Seal Team Six, Disposing of Stevens. recklessly giving top secrete military weapons to our enemies Iran and China as well as terrorist in Libya and Syria and Egypt…How much more can we afford to sit on the side lines. Obama is basically calling us out. I’m sure their is peaceful resolve but only if we can FORCE our congress and senate to do their jobs and get this guy impeached or face charges along with Obama

    How insanely idiotic and without thought this spiteful, always politically motivated two year old we have sitting in our Oval Office is. Think of the message to other countries and in particular, France. If we would use the memories of our ( and the world’s ) heroic military as pawns and neglect them and disavow them for no other than reason than spite, what would we do to other Nations for the same reasons? How loyal is America to it’s own? Not very. How loyal is America to others? Not at all.

    This is what we are saying to the world and this is how they are coming to think of us. Shame on this man, shame on his party, shame on us.

    • lawngren

      ” If we would use the memories of … heroic military as pawns and neglect them and disavow them…”

      I know what you meant. I just want to emphasize: not we. Him. And his democrat / liberal / muslim / marxist allies. They are the evil ones responsible for this, although I want to see Congress doing some shutdown of their own. Congress should stop playing footsie with obama and start yanking funding from EPA, IRS, DHS, and every other fed agency in existence. Get off defense and do some offense for a change.

      They stir the soul.

      I think what you mean is that one reason for shutting down the war memorials is to begin the process of making people forget about the sacrifices made by thousands of American military, not for our freedom only, but for the freedom of many other nations. No stirring in the soul. No true remembrance. No reason to think that what the ignorant are throwing away is something worth fighting for, even dying for.

        Yes. There is no end of offenses with the unholy one in office.

        Is there not some way we the people can act to slap this tyrant down hard? I can’t see it.

        One of the reasons that America has endured for so long, as noted by, I think, Alexis de Toqueville, is that political losers knew that in four more years they’d have another chance. We know now that, due to massive vote fraud and millions of brainwashed students, we will never again have the chance to vote out evil.

        Time for Lysol.

        • NYGino

          One of the reasons we’ve also endured so long is that, on the whole, we had an unbiased media that was honest and did it’s job of informing the people of what really was going on. We no longer have that.

            You’re absolutely right. They’re socialist propaganda orgs. Nothing more.

    The disgust for Obama is mounting. He also tried to shut down privately owned Mount Vernon….

        Just keep one thing in mind. Contrary to what the ‘media’ would have you believe, there are a whole lot more of us, than there are of them. ;-)

      I couldn’t agree with you more. I deliberately have stayed away from this site for the very same reason as you stated, actually I’m furious beyond words, and haven’t been able to think straight. To dishonor the heroes that liberated me in ’44

        Why can’t I continue typing on my post?

          I think Disqus is really jumpy sometimes. Maybe they are trying to implement “keyboard shortcuts” and failing. I notice that every once in a while the page just changes location and I have trouble finding my edit box to finish typing.

          • Dr. Strangelove

            When I type fast on Disqus, it drops letters and I have to go back and fill them in. It misspells words, too… OK, maybe that part’s me.

    This article is absolutely wrong! First let me say I did not vote either time for that clown in the White House & did 27 years in this man’s army. What did Reagan say? “trust but verify” These cemeteries are run but the French & local governments, & only administered by the USA. The funds come from US & French civic organizations.

      The Normandy American Cemetery is operated by the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC), which was established by Congress in 1923 and is a federal government agency. The government shutdown did lead to loss of funding for the ABMC. See: http://www.abmc.gov/home.php
      I have family vacationing in the area; unfortunately, it is factual that it’s closed.

    obama is showing that he is a really big spoiled child. He has always been a cry baby and now he is really showing it. You know the type…it’s my football and if it does not go my way I take my football and good home. Don’t ever think the people do not notice this and in the long run it will hurt the Democrats in the 2014 House and Senate Elections. Republican and Tea Party members need to capitalize on this and really make it apparent. Closing the Cemeteries in Normandy is really a a messed up move on their part…….and the way Harry Reid spoke to the CNN reporter regarding Cancer patients was really the center piece of all. Their will be more examples and they need to brought out. The President and Democrats shut the Government Down and tried to blame everyone else. I think it is going to fall on their nose….finally. Take back the Senate in 2014 and repeal obamacare in 2015. Even Prohibition was repealed.

  • lance c

    this should be played on a march to DC, A hundred or so beating this constantly as the march passes. I doubt if any one in CONGRESS OR THE SENET WOULD RECOGNIZE IT.—–http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Bugle+Call+To+Arms&form=VQFRVP&first=1#view=detail&mid=8BFFBB52C433D61741E78BFFBB52C433D61741E7

    all the other shutdown over the years I don’t think the parks and other places were closed

      Yes they want the parks closed too.

    Striking how this petulant, mean little tyrant goes after the very things that successfully stood against, and fought tyrants and dictators. Just wait until he has total control of your health care!

      I agree….’Tyrant’ !

  • greg comnes

    The comments on this site remind me of the definition of stupidity as the deliberate cultivation of ignorance.
    If you would replace your ad hominem rants with causal analysis, you would recognize that this closure is a result of the tea party attempting to circumvent a law passed by congress and deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court.

    • faxxmaxx

      No, you would recognize that the entire govt. should be operating normally with the exception of financing Obamacare, the illegally written law that the Supreme Court had no right to change from an unconstitutional penalty into a law.

    • Eric Z. Elder

      They only tested constitutionality based on a couple specific areas. However, had it been looked at from the point of view that it DOES create a tax and it DID originate in the Senate and NOT the House of Representatives, then the out come would have to by unanimously different. IE: Article II of the constitution SPECIFICALLY states that bills that create new taxes MUST (not should, not maybe, not “it would be nice”, but MUST) originate in the House of Representatives.

      The ACA did NOT start in the House of Representatives and DOES impose a new tax.

  • Jean Jenner

    LIARS – The undeniable fact is that Obama has not closed anything. Obama has not vetoed the budget because he never even got to his desk. The House won’t vote for a clean (budget) bill, and the Senate won’t accept anything but a clean bill. So, at this point its is between John Boehner and Harry Reid.

    • Eric Z. Elder

      Actually, Obama made it clear that he will not compromise. So he has set the tone that the Senate and his party mates are following. He gave the marching orders for the democrats.

      Now, had he taken the National stage and said “I am willing to accept one of the bills that the House of Representatives has offered in order to keep government running and discuss the ACA.” Then you may have a valid point.

      I do not know what fairy tale you are reading, but Obama is just as guilty. Who do you think ultimately is in charge of the National Park Service? Hmmmm. . . .

      • Jean Jenner

        The Tea Party member of the House have made it clear they will not
        compromise. This minority of fanatic right winger are holding America hostage and they have “demand” (Kill ACA or else.) Obama should not negotiate with these economic terrorist.

        There is no “fairy tale” here – Its a frigging nightmare and it is brought to us by the Tea Party. In regard to the closure of the National Park, It does not matter who is ultimately in charge. This maybe be news to you but National Park closing is what happen to government funded parks when government shutdown.

        Obama does not grab the phone and say “shut down this” and “shut down that”. Non-essential government workers are furlough and that includes National Park employee, that is why national parks are closed.

        A simple vote from the House could keep them open, and they have the vote!

    Obama never showed the respect for those killed at Normandy, he refused to attend the june 6 memorial service. he is a piece of garbage

  • rick longino

    I know you wish to fool us all, but we do realize that it was the Republicans, refusing to fund the budget, who compelled all non-essential personnel to cease work, including at this important site.

  • jax

    Bob Grimes – I was at Normandy when President Obama was at the June 6th memorial service. He was inspiring, respectful and appreciative. You, on the other hand, are not.

  • jax

    The president doesn’t have the authority or power to shut down government – only congress can do that, and in this case it was the republicans in congress. I would also like to add that many of the men and women who work at these American monuments, cemeteries and memorials are vets themselves, and that those that are still working are doing so without pay.
