'Greatest generation' veterans sweep past barricades at memorial in their honor

WW2.jpg

What was meant to be a final gathering of heroes Tuesday instead became a final victory for dozens of World War II combat vets who refused to let the government's budget battle block a visit to their memorial in the nation's capital.

With bagpipers playing "Amazing Grace," nearly 200 veterans from Mississippi and Iowa swept past barricades and security guards at the World War II Memorial in Washington in order to keep a commitment to visit the site, which was closed today due to the partial government shutdown. The veterans, in their 80s and 90s, were accompanied by Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., a former Marine who earlier vowed not to let the National Park Police keep them from a planned visit to the open-air monument. 

"For some reason, I just feel like royalty," Jim Ferencak, a Navy and Air Force veteran told GulfLive.com at the event.

A salute to our veterans who will not be stopped by the Constitution hating, pro Muslim President we now have. Obama may bow to foreign kings and emperors but our military bows to no one.

Now that's how its done!

Listen to Huckabee and how he says Obama care should be handled. Its Ideal!

HOO-AH!!!!

So very proud of you all.

Awesome! Bless our Vets!!

This is just another victory for some of the finest men and women that have served this country to keep it free and still have the fortitude to tell it like it is. This is their monument not Obama's! They shall prevail as they always have. God bless them and what they stand for--FREEDOM!

Larry J. Johansen, Sr.---I salute them all.

  That's because they are the last true American's, not like the Give me free stuff one's of today.

This is why they are the greatest generation unlike our generations -- we are lazy.

Sheeple worry about free phones, taxi, college, section 8 housing, etc. than they do the country.

I am sick about what we have turned into after these great veterans saved our country and fought for US.

We can't even get enough people to get off their azz and call their fraud legislators.

THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN TO THESE VETERANS!

A patriotic act of civil disobedience. Let these patriotic and fearless vets be our guide.

What a beautiful story....really touches my heart.

Had the privilege of shaking hands with a WW2 Vet at grocery story few months back. Couldn't resist the urge to approach him to give thanks for his service. It was a special moment for me to shake the hand of one connected to such a historical part of America's history.

Where were Boehner and the rest of the Republican Rinos?

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
