Not Allowed To Even Look.....

Oct 9, 2013|

The Obama Administration is so insane about the Park Services shut down that it required park rangers to set up around Old Faithful 15 minutes before each eruption so no one could take a picture.Even the tourists taking photos from the windows of the Yellowstone Lodge had their cameras photobombed by the NPS. Howie kept reiterating that it was almost as if the President was trying to punish us for not agreeing with him.

VFW this is the via this on the VFW web site. VFW veterans of foreign wars discussed that -- elected leadership. The nation's oldest and largest war veterans organization is discussed that with the partisan bickering and government propped paralysis caused by a White House and congress will not budge from their ideological extremes -- normal week in order to properly take care America's true heroes. Williams beat the yen the national commander of the almost two million members of the VFW. Said yesterday's news that the government will not transporter make a death assistance payment to grieving military families was the last -- it is absolutely appalling and nothing short of travesty that elected officials. Continue to receive paychecks and benefits while not providing for those who deserve it most. Because of failed leadership we have 56 closed Department of Veterans Affairs regional office 7000 furloughed employees more than four million disabled veterans and survivors. Who were told next month's disability or survivors benefits track will be the way. Why I didn't know that that the -- We also have a hypocritical National Park Service the closes our nation's war memorial to veterans. And a federal government that continues to make foreign aid payments while our own national security is threatened. Because congress has failed to pass a defense budget or put an end to the sequester. -- -- Okay. The Pentagon announced today that it charity will step in to pay the death benefits. To the families of to it to the families of follow. The the nine. Slain. Serviced servicemen and women. The house announced vote Wednesday afternoon to restore the 100000. Dollar corrupt payments. And in -- sense. But wait. G. The clip the. Bigger but that -- goal is saying that they're still that'll allow the Fisher house to provide those benefits. He claims -- claims the administration still lacked the necessary authority. And so turn to the Fisher house for help after the shutdown -- DOD will. Department of Defense will reimburse the Fisher house for the costs and is incurred. So this whether there's still much gonna take the that's going to -- -- -- claim so. So -- money to keep -- website but big but even after the house approves by unanimous vote. Two to fund this which they funded before by the way. They they they still. They based they still say they can't do it. The park police. This is from a John this is from the weekly standard which have been on a very good job covering -- by the way. Is the it's added editorial the conduct of the National Park Service over the last week might be the biggest scandal of the Obama administration this is an expansive claim of course in Gaza eat fast and furious the IRS the NSA they HHS mandate. This is an administration that is not lacked for appalling abuses of power and we still have three years ago. Even so consider the actions of the national parks service and the government shutdown began. People first noticed what the -- PS was up to when the World War II memorial on the national malls closed. Just to be clear the memorial is an open plaza. There's nothing to operate. Sometimes there might be -- standing around but he's not collecting tickets are opening gates. Putting up barricades and posting guards to close the World War II memorial takes more resources and manpower and keeping it over. They talk about shutting down the a little farm -- more mom colonial farm that we talked about last week. Embassy that was another one. Think about that permanent the park service which is supposed to serve the to serve the public by administering parks is now in the business of forcing parks they don't administered to close. As Homer Simpson famously asked did we lose a war. The parking lot of Mount Vernon was closed by the end PS2 even though the park service is not -- Mount Vernon it just controls access to the parking lot from the George Washington parkway. At the Vietnam memorial which is just the wall you walked past BM PS call them police blocked access. And then they talk about the mount Rushmore. It's shutting off the telling people that can't stop to look at the view from the -- public highways. This is how deep the politicization of Barack Obama's administration goes the park service falls under the department of interior -- its director is a political appointee. Historically the directorship has been -- partisan in the services function as a civil lot of political unit. Before the current director Jonathan Jarvis was nominated by President Obama it's been thirty years of civil servant. He's taken to his political duties with all the favour of a third tier hack from the DNC. Mirroring the disinterested contempt of a meter -- With the zeal of an ambitious party apparatchiks. 18774694322. To make life as -- No surprise that no one park ranger explain to The Washington Times last week we've been told to make quite as difficult for people this weekend. To make life is difficult for people as we -- that would be an apt motto for the Obama world BO. And now we've in the -- and ropes at the National Park Service have been -- to which product. This is the clearest example yet of how the president understands the relationship between his government in the service and 1877469432218774694322. By the way Obama's approval rating is now about a 37%. I -- congress is set for is at 5% sleep gotta keep it in perspective. And Boehner and I read the democratic senate majority leader of their high and eat team percent. But still that's the that's the lowest Obama I think has ever been. In a and in an EP yeah. And eight people. Obama -- website looks like nobody test that programmers says you mentioned math. Mean my what web site. How we car show dot com we test that back and forth backwards and forwards before we before we -- while we won't we we want to make sure that that we. We tested that we bought stuff on it we make sure PayPal was all hooked up to what. This is. This is a guy who's a who's met -- Will that you -- Chung an online database programmer. It wasn't designed well it wasn't implemented well and it looks like nobody test that it. Nobody test that it. He says it's not demand that's crashing the site he thinks the entire web -- need to complete overhaul it's not even close it's not even ready for beta testing for my book. I would be shamed and embarrassed of my organization delivered something like that. Well you're not in the federal government -- OK so that's why you're not in the federal government. 187746943221877. I want to three movies Regis one point one last thing here but the video of the latest update on the on the the Yellowstone of the -- who were taken off their boss and pretty much forcibly confined to -- old -- Which is built around the all old faithful as I understand that I've ever been here. I have it's mighty beautiful but it's in the hotel bit but logs were talking about is built around. All three minutes right on all I mean from the dining room you can sit there in the dining room and its big giant plate glass windows Democrat adult -- all right. Evidently. This is this is hot air dot com evidently it wasn't enough to effectively -- probably -- inside -- hotel. To make doubly sure that -- once my cup that the guys are for a -- while it was erupting. They drove down these Rangers to the site ten to fifteen minutes beforehand that stood guard. That's how -- this one's. Presumably even the -- taking photos from the windows of vote -- and that up with their old faithful moment though. Effectively being -- bombed by the -- PS. Hate that America. 1877469432277. Forces mumbled like did not get one word you just said. That was the point right Chris. And if someone wants the entire run the full Prosser by Mobil's. Well we will will play that later we got it we got -- -- it sex will play well we'll give yulia. A good solid -- just like we did last night it was just one of those things Amendola public TV and I was with a I was with Chris you know were discussing the and throws and I looked up I saw. His mumbled one. And we just so we missed the little bit in the beginning but we didn't miss much that we probably we missed a lot now yeah. Plus there was it was a cornucopia. Of great stuff we all are gonna miss some of them will that's all that's all we we can all agree that can't get that keeps on giving.

Of course you know they what they have the Muslims were marching on on September 11 and a few dozen showed up and that was a huge story you know that nationally that the it was they they were portraying him as this huge thing and you know if you if you have veterans are -- or -- motorcycle Soro or. Anyone else other than the politically correct the the politically protected. Groups. They they they downplay the size of bureau if your group that don't they don't give it a live coverage that now on on on the cable news networks except for fox may be they'll give -- any coverage on the networks they don't give -- any coverage in the newspapers. That's the way it is now. 1877. 469432218774694322. Fox News said there are 29 families tonight -- benefits where the candlelight vigils. Just to a settlement. I've been asking where. There the candlelight vigils have been out of business since -- worry twentieth 2009. Acacia and noticed meant. Nobody does anymore candlelight none none of the this they don't care they don't carry used to be the big story whenever there was a whenever there was any casualties in Afghanistan or Iraq -- when they have these might these horrible -- up milestones of 500 or thousand or 2000. Now now it's just nothing to see here folks move along dear leader wrote a dear dear leader -- doesn't need this kind of distraction.

They haven't even they have even made him shaved his beard have. I don't believe I have -- now and then they get a judge order a judge ordered him to shave his beard and the judge was immediately transferred and replaced by a more politically correct. Jurist right. Something like that yeah I think I think the recently he's been negotiated you're by somebody else none of the nonaligned lights. You know we -- know what Obama allowed -- you know police. Right in order of the -- it's it was workplace violence that's what he said he was workplace toilets became became a storm or that they were watching it on TV and he comes out and -- He had the first thing he says is -- to give a shout out to somebody some -- some some Indian I guess -- first up -- the was at the at the event was that. He deeds spoke for two or three minutes before even mentioned via the. The my arm was still serving and it was really it would galling to me because. He knew this whole thing happened I wasn't sure where Mike I'm with extinction because you know he delinquent cities and counter terrorism they wouldn't tell me where he was. It was -- -- distracting at -- -- and I was looking at the president thinking how unprofessional like like some kind of a junior high school. Student and now I know you could you I mean you know they they hated bushel much but bush never -- bungled anything. No president ever when a bomb or anything like that even Jimmy Carter. You know yeah. Obama punishing enemies -- that anybody American but American citizens and the military. Now you know thanks thanks for the call about 1877469432218774694322. Everybody have a copy of people that are still recovering from wounds of Nadal Hasan haven't they had a problem getting he would get getting the kind of treatment that they need to work to recover from big truck and I believe they have advocates on one of the yeah. One of the victims on on fox. Recently by the way up. The other update on the on the Redskins they have the they have a meeting yesterday of the National Football League owners and I guess their. This is when they're gonna start to put that start to put the heat on Dan Snyder owner of the Washington Redskins. And so what they do is after the after every. Every. Owners meeting the the commissioner of the NFL Roger Goodell has a press conference. And which care to guess what for the first five questions were. Yes yes they were about the Redskins -- And if you didn't see it there was a picture in the of one of the papers today they have a via they had a demonstration it will what was it was a small demonstration they. They were escorting one guy. One guy it was being escorted out of the meeting is he would -- it was an Indian and the -- he had an idea flight. That was it. That was it but it made that it May Day may the national -- photo wires. Was probably in every politically correct newspaper in America. One -- 18774694322. Who was in the audio clip you played about Obama being Obama here with the rest of us. That's a a Republican congressman from Wisconsin named Sean Duffy and he was on whip. With Andrea Mitchell and I guess he just decided you know element support come out -- come up you know what ballclub barrels blazing if you like him. I can use the firearm analogy and and he just decided -- latter and she you know just you know sort of before -- it's you know ask him when he stopped beating your wife you know the usual questions for Republicans. And of course he just put it right place and she had no watch it no comeback she's she's not used to being addressed now. Frank your next without cargo ahead frank. -- and my son just -- Saudi army five years in the year in Afghanistan. Is outraged. -- the death benefits because I don't know if -- to soldiers page. For the life insurance is not the government paying for I don't know where money's being held. -- -- monthly premiums. But the episode as a payment without my being held. Will -- did this 100000 dollars is different than the middle life insurance policy isn't a and that's it I thought I'd putt -- the colonel said this is for this is to defray burial expenses. Well there's some good money -- so. 124 out of some essential and. That's the that's the that's the benefits that's the benefits I think yeah. Their life insurance. They just tell me that they paid out immediately -- as well. Really I don't nobody I don't know about the life insurance. Yeah I -- qualifying no. Those two things I think it's 501 assist the soldiers say life insurance premiums. Yeah is that is that -- compulsory -- that voluntary. It's voluntary but usually have and so once I guess they have to give an explanation why. And then you know the -- issues six console them and we're so it's only -- sometimes. Young met a very young. -- have a young wife -- you try to suggest split between -- -- parents. And and a wife has and so whites could be irresponsible. Army all that's with a -- that goes way back I mean you don't need for me Stevie -- they give the gangster I mean he enlisted you know in the Korean War before he was a seventeen. And when he got into Korea they told -- you better switch to your real name or your parents aren't going to be able to get any death benefits if you get if you die so. -- this goes back a long long way obviously. By a particular stunt out here right now but he says don't you want to try your podium to say you know he's he's so so outraged that. The what -- somebody's campaign. And why isn't you know being separated from. -- the -- the federal budget should be two separate things look like. Can you imagine -- that they did the you know even after congress passes this thing two to release this money. I mean it been released before but now it's not become a national scandal. And hagel. He says that the Defense Secretary says he still camp accept the money how was that how does that work I mean caught congress appropriates funds ended for the department of defense and the Department of Defense can't accept my I don't get that. It's just -- -- yeah exactly and I haven't the in you know I talked I was shocked to hear and so many deaths. And I you know as far as like someone's in Afghanistan -- -- he -- -- -- -- -- is yours in the what some part of Basque terrorist number of you don't hearing in the paper and on an episode of Obama -- the wall told us that you know al-Qaeda is on the run and right so forth and so on that this was an -- I was just. -- off the so many of there weren't being killed were still over there. -- you're gonna get when bush was president -- it would there was almost gleeful reporting of the -- I mean I'm not saying that the media was gleeful look Americans were being killed were goal but they there was this element of them of the media. That was very. Least put it mildly but they can blame this on George Bush and they went out of their way to make sure that everybody knew how many people exactly have been killed. In the hours just it's like thinking it's like the candlelight vigils. The golf you know just that totally disappeared. Maybe Cindy Sheehan can find out where the casualty reports are and where the candlelight vigils went thanks for the call frank. 1877469432218774694. Where his code pink says 50 -- exactly. Exactly where is code pink. How come I'm not the busting into the busting into the senate the press conferences. I guess the I guess that they -- -- have a press conference and that the mayor of Washington DC. Burst in. Burst you know we in front of the camera but he was probably outside. It and in any said the you know you gotta stop this you know you ought to stop this what the level we we need this money you got away exempt us from the the but shut down in Vegas -- was very embarrassed because of course the mayor you're you're you're familiar you're familiar with -- now since the since the navy yard shooting. And the Ali you don't read they -- wants to continue this fiction that's Ali Republica and he'd keep party. In hears this Democrat mayor. Coming in and kind of like -- blowing his cover. And I guess I but again I mean that do you think you're gonna see anything on the network newscasts about this guy I painted. Tony you're next with how -- -- ahead Tony. -- -- -- I just sort of to remind you he -- assault that's probably what the veterans going back I don't know how long ago. He remembered his suggestion. That of the wounded veterans. Eight for that little insurance limit their taxes -- Yeah I do remember that now yes yep. And it it's just I mean it's just that displaced certain I love that term. They've Vietnam error in there to disgraced every metric I don't consider this there might mean -- How many again I mean. What. -- games are -- playing when they get the money appropriated and then they say they can't pay. I mean what they what I guess. I think the -- they impressing with this vote in the they're just trying pretty irritated and an outrage everybody that's not outraged already. Like the -- previous -- so good woman couple a couple of -- ago. They're hurting their enemies and right now there -- the Americans. They're hurting they're veteran. In my column color in them illegal immigrants and that Bubba Caldwell who suggested the all of that true. March or early on ER ER -- I would be given a heartbeat I was going to get the same thing I mean it's time that Victor -- think he -- I've got three words that. -- couldn't be associated with this guy. History once you're going to be resignation. The other going to be impeachment. On the continent be separately. None on audio but I cut that every cut that I got to cut off their for that last word one mates I -- You know he's not gonna resign Tony you know that I mean you that you can't get him out of there with a job as a light peeking at. You can impeach him you can and you could theoretically impeach -- my guess in my house but I don't think that anyway but. If you and you still up to convict him in the senate and that's a two thirds vote and what 53% of the -- of the senators are Democrats. So that's not happening either anymore that happened with Clinton. 1877469432. To about car. 1877. -- 6943. 2218774694322. That's a paltry number of our show. Was was as gracious some research on discussion on Buffy -- some some kind of -- was on MTV real world shall I I don't know on orders I want seasons -- was -- one of the original season to now we see now now which Republican congressman now. Enough from Wisconsin. Floppy wanna hear this we're gonna win a purple -- to it so you can you can download it you can get to easily and and a recorder pass on the front but. We've got to right now we're gonna play one more time here this is this is congressman. Show on Duffy Republican of Wisconsin. Whip and Korea metro yesterday on an agreement show on nine MSNBC. That's the only way the issues the only people should go on MSNBC I mean. Don't that don't just win their tickets. Now you know I mean you have that this turn the other cheek I mean. That's good that's so that's good stuff in the new testament but that -- worked too well on national TV. Now we're gonna what you want on obamacare and it's not -- the president wants on the debt ceiling that don't don't don't spend and I mean I just told you about this at the top of our segment. That we're gonna pass. -- -- -- CR to address those benefits mom would look up from military especially those families who have made the ultimate sacrifice we are gonna do that. And we're gonna do -- this week. So are you asking about the larger issue of why can't people resolve this government shut down. And we have been incredibly reasonable making a small asked if the president doesn't nice -- that he get rid of this central part of his health care plan that was upheld. By -- by the vote of a pentagon election and the united any supreme and prevent hold on that's your spin. They're the president gave a one year exemption for this and once you give one example is businesses in regard to taxes on the penalties and obamacare. Everyone still can go into the exchange if they want but they're not penalized and big business if they don't go and we've sat. We individuals for the families if they want -- obamacare they can but if they don't for one year don't tax them to penalize them just like we're treating big businesses. That is fair under the law that's all we've asked for he's won the debate Andrea. Good exchanges are up and and kind of running. Their subsidies out there this is a small last one. Equity and equality under the law for individuals and families just like a business then why won't you join us and obamacare why wasn't Michelle Obama on October 1. At the computer with her family sign up for obamacare -- Jay Carney. They have -- all of the gold plated health care plan do you know -- and they don't know I'm not I'm an Obama care. I'm an obamacare are all members of congress are my family. The president should join us and obamacare and the rest of America. That's is that pretty reasonable we should all be treated equally under the law why should members of congress be Obama cannot the president explain that one. Is that fair. I think that the -- Can you defend that do you defend why the president should get Obama -- member of the congress and their -- I can't say that I can't defend why didn't they didn't expect at. The White House cannot figure out a way to reopen the government. So that I can't question and their families can give -- the benefits that they have and I told you graduate this week about why you viewers to know that this -- been a reasonable approach by our part to go. Everyone equal under the law the president and congress and obamacare as good if it's good for America. It's good enough for the people who passed the law. And individuals for one week. -- one year being treated like big businesses who came to this hill with a lobbyist and got an exemption to the taxes on the requirements of obamacare. Give that same treatment to lie to took to the families in America and again this has nothing to do with the exchange is being open or the subsidies in the exchanges. We're not having any impact on -- they can stand up. And run. We're just saying. Treat individuals and found is like big business and have Obama going to obamacare that's it no one's asked that question for Jon Stewart. I think to me to start doing his job. Thanks for your eyes. I bet that last shot he gets them by Jon Stewart. That's great. Good work. All right duke last winter ice I would remember it because I was thinking about this before it happened but there there's a guy named Henry chow he's the chief information officer at the senators. For Medicare and Medicaid Services. And he openly fretted that the exchanges wouldn't be ready by October and this is what he said this is what he told it wasn't sure he's speaking before an inch an insurance industry conference in DC. I'm pretty nervous I don't know about you let's just make sure it's not a Third World experience. I'm pretty nervous I don't know about you let's just make sure it's not a Third World experience. I guess a lot of people this is a story in Forbes. At the time each house comment sounded like an attempt that dark humor. I didn't think it is an attempt at humor. I thought it was I thought it was really spreading as he put it. One weekend the launch of obamacare however it's not a joke it's literally easier to blog from the Kenyan border than to sign up for insurance on Obama cares federal which changed why is this happening. Politics the Obama administration was more afraid of delaying the launch of Obama here in the world botching it. All you need to know so about the rollout of Obama care subsidized insurance exchanges is that so far the toughest questions posed to the Obama administration. Have come from. Comedy Central. -- -- are you proudly Andrea Mitchell we're going to do what challenge Jon Stewart told Kathleen Sebelius on The Daily Show. I'm going to try that -- try and download every movie. Ever made in your going to try and sign up for obamacare we'll see which one happens first. I didn't hear that part of it that's pretty potato. 18774694322. Apparently they've known this for at least eight months that this was going to be a total fiasco. Darlene you're next with how we cargo ahead Darlene. -- -- Let you know that my present husband voted for Obama actually was moved his job and right now he's not getting paid and he -- -- it.
