Hardcore antiwar Left attempts to hijack public anger at @barackobama over #shutdown.
You might have noticed last night the groundwork for a future attempt (probably later today) to incite outrage about war veterans getting arrested at a Vietnam Veterans memorial. Turns out that these particular war veterans get arrested every year – in New York – as part of their general antiwar protesting. Don’t believe me? Believe the Atlantic, then: The gathering took place in part to | Read More »
Barack Obama spitefully *chose* to make WWII Memorial inaccessible to veterans.
Every time I look at the WWII Memorial story, it gets worse. It’s bad that the Obama administration closed down national monuments and museums, because it thinks that attacking DC tourism will give the Democratic party leverage over the Republican party. It’s bad that the Obama administration tried to keep WWII veterans away from the monument that honors them. It failed, of course, but they | Read More »

Because there are several members of the National Women’s Veterans Association of America (NWVAA) that would no doubt like an answer to those two questions.

This is fitting rebuttal to TIME’s Joe Klein, who recently asserted on “The Chris Matthews Show” that Obama’s relationship with the military is better than was President Bush’s. | Read More »
Babs Boxer: Being a Senator is as tough as being a soldier
It’s no wonder Madam Senator Barbara Boxer (Democrat-California) demands to be called Senator: She thinks it’s a pretty tough job. In fact, she thinks it’s as tough as being “a policeman or a fireman or a veteran.” It gets better, too. She says “the pressure” that she and Maxine Waters feel creates the same bonding that the aforementioned police, fire, and military volunteers endure and | Read More »
