” Witnessing the unedifying spectacle put on by our masters in Washington this last week or so, we could only shake our heads sadly. And when we contemplated the action of ordinary citizens — those vets who disassembled the “Barrycades” erected in front of national monuments by a punitive Obama administration — we couldn’t help wondering whether the country was teetering towards a pre-revolutionary state. Take a look at this video showing hundreds of veterans confronting park police in riot gear — riot gear! — in front of the White House. How about this photo of a vet: he lost the bottom half of both legs fighting to protect us from foreign enemies, and here he is now, tearing down those Barrycades, fighting to protect our prerogatives as free citizens, protesting the arrogant, overweening actions of a political elite that more and more views us citizens as serfs:

There is a lot more to be said about the events of the last couple of weeks: the pseudo-shutdown, the ham-handed and ineffectual pontifications of John Boehner, the punitive actions of the increasingly lawless Obama administration. Pundits and markets the world over heaved a collective sigh of relief when this circus of intransigence, stupidity, and preening brinksmanship collapsed on itself yesterday, but what happened is not behind us: it is prelude, not history. We are in the midst of political, social, and moral realignment, the lineaments of which no one’s crystal ball is sufficiently prescient to delineate with anything more than guess and possibilities.

This is a large subject, better suited to a book than a blog post. But let me draw on “The Obamacare Disaster,” an essay by Conrad Black at NRO, to highlight some of the headwinds we face. First, a few data points:

The United States has 5 percent of the world’s people, 25 percent of its incarcerated people, and half of its trained lawyers (who now take about 10 percent of the GDP); the legal system is an embarrassment, and the criminal-justice system is a disgrace, in which prosecutors win 99.5 percent of their cases, 97 percent of them without a trial. The legislators of the country are ultimately responsible for this corruption of what the Constitution and Bill of Rights set up as a just and merciful Society of Laws. The terminal cancer of legal paralysis spreads every week of every year.

Can you doubt that what Black says is true? But what are “we the people” going to do about this metastasizing pathology? “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Thousands Remove Barricades At WWII Memorial; Palin, Cruz, Others Lead “Tear Down These Walls” Chants

” Thousands of protesters have arrived at the World War II memorial this morning to protest the closure of the memorials during the government shutdown. The protestors have removed the barriers and have entered the monument.”

” Senators Mike Lee – Utah and Ted Cruz – Texas as well as Sarah Palin were among the crowd that chanted “Tear down these walls” and sang patriotic songs according to local news coverage from WTOP, as the barriers were removed.”    

     The story was the same at the Lincoln Memorial where the taxpayers took back what is rightfully theirs as Mr Conservative reports .     Lincoln Mem     CBS DC offers more     Veterans and their families and friends gather at the Lincoln Memorial in protest of the government shutdown. (credit: Heather Curtis/All-News 99.1)

    ” Frustrated veterans and their families pushed through the barricades at the World War II memorial to protest the political stalemate between the Senate and the House of Representatives. Veterans then moved to the Lincoln Memorial, according to All-News 99.1 reporter Heather Curtis, where they were once again met by barricades.”

The People have had enough of the “Barry-cades” , that’s for sure .

Dana Loesch reports on the march and here is another report from Fox News …

A Link To A Hot Air Open Thread: The Vets March On Washington

” If you were relying on the usual cable news channels, you probably wouldn’t even know this was happening today, but the much anticipated veterans’ march on DC has been well under way for a while now. At least the local news is covering it

The group was upset with the closure of memorials in Washington due to the shutdown stalemate. The original WWII protest was organized by the Million Vet March group, but took on a more political tone.”

     As Jim Hoft reports , veterans took down the barry-cades from the Lincoln Memorial and relocated them at the White House where they more properly belong .

   This report from PJMedia’s Tattler which includes numerous photos will give you a better idea of what is going on in DC . As you can see in all the tumult of the shutdown Benghazi and the men who gave their lives there are not forgotten .

   Here’s another choice photo , this one from Frontpage magazine . Note the mounted troops in the background and the officer with all the flex-cuffs in the foreground . Did anyone see any of this sort of preparation at the Illegal Alien rally on the Mall earlier in the week ? We didn’t think so …

Shame on US …

Published on Feb 17, 2013

” Gangster Thug tries to beat up elderly Vietnam Vet over a trivial argument. He calls him racist after he asked him to spit shine his shoes. *note the guy is crazy and the black guy did make some comments to him before this was filmed – he may have provoked the remark. “Vietnam Tom” is known to have black friends.”

Boston Marathon Suspect Is Killed, Second On Loose After Extraordinary Firefight

 

 

 

 

 

 

” With a bomb strapped to his chest, one of the Boston Marathon suspects was killed early Friday after he and his accomplice robbed a 7-Eleven, shot a police officer to death, carjacked an SUV and hurled explosives out the window in an extraordinary firefight with law enforcement, authorities told NBC News.

The second suspect — the one in the white hat in photos released by the FBI — was on the loose, and police ordered people in the Boston suburb of Watertown to stay in their homes and businesses not to open. Boston shut down its buses and subway system for the hunt.

The suspects are brothers with the last name Tsarnaez, law enforcement officials told NBC News. Two law enforcement officials told NBC News that both men had international ties, had been in the United States about a year, were in their early 20s and had military experience.”

Lindsey Stone Learns A Lesson About Respect

 

You Don’t Give Any , You Don’t Get Any

 

A sign commanding silence and respect at Arlin...

 

 

Her 15 minutes are up so we won’t run the idiotic photo that she posted again . Instead we run the one above . For those of you who may have missed it , her handiwork can be seen here .

” The Massachusetts woman at the center of the Facebook  photo scandal at Arlington Cemetery has been fired from her job at a Cape Cod business.

Lindsey Stone’s employer, Living Independently Forever (LIFE), issued a statement on their Facebook page on Wednesday announcing that they have released the two employees involved in the controversial incident.

“We wish to announce that the two employees recently involved in the Arlington Cemetery incident are no longer employees of LIFE. Again, we deeply regret any disrespect to members of the military and their families .

“SEALs ‘lives put at risk’ after prez ‘spilled’ U.S. military secrets”

   ” The killing of Osama bin Laden is an accomplishment mentioned many times by President Obama and his administration. Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod once said the case for a second term could be summed up by saying, “General Motors
is alive and Osama bin Laden is dead.”

   But even though the al-Qaida
mastermind is gone, many veterans of U.S. Special Operations are furious over how the Obama administration handled
the matter. “

I’m late to the party with this one and only became aware of it from a commenter on another blog .
   In any event , perhaps you were unaware as well . If so , enlighten yourselves .

Via The Teaparty Tribune

As if there weren’t enough reasons to despise the man ….

 

“Vietnam veterans and the families of Vietnam veterans killed in action whose names are etched on the Wall were denied access to their memorial today, of all days,
Memorial Day.

The Vietnam Memorial was
shutdown, cleared and secured for
approximately 5 hours prior to Obama, his cronies and hand picked veterans for a 15 minute appearance by Obama. It’s obvious
it was all for show. After all, this is an election year.

Hundreds if not thousands of Vietnam veterans and families of Vietnam veterans killed in Vietnam stood in disbelief as Secret
Service, Park Police, Washington, DC Police, etc., blocked all access to the Vietnam Memorial and kept everyone approximately 100 yards away from their memorial for the
first time in the history of the Memorial so Obama could get some photos of him at the
Wall.
Veterans in uniforms stood in the heat angered as Obama makes them wait. It was a photo op at their expense and families of
those killed in Vietnam.”
