Barack Obama declared war on our veterans, military and their families. The barricading of the World War II Memorial was one of the most despicable and egregious acts this president has bestowed upon the American people.
To intentionally prevent our World War II veterans from visiting their memorial and allowing Americans the opportunity to personally express their gratitude to them was unbelievable. The veterans who travel to Washington, D.C., on Honor Flights are in their 80s and 90s and this may well be their last trip. They all say it was the trip of a lifetime and they will never forget it. I know because I have traveled with them on these flights. These men saved the world and no Obama barricade will ever keep them out. It is a place of honor and honor them we will.
Equally appalling was the closing of the cemeteries in Normandy, France where so many World War II vets are buried. Seeing the barricades being erected around hallowed ground was so repugnant, my thoughts are not printable here. Even the French were asking what is happening in America.
As if this were not hideous enough, families of the fallen were not recieving the the death benefits that were owed to them by this government. House Republicans passed a bill to ensure the military would be paid and this death benefit would remain in place.
Somewhere along the way the White House, the Department of Justice and the Department of Defense said no way and denied these families the funds to bury their loved ones. President Obama stated and I quote "When I heard of this story I told people to see if that could fix it." He is the commander in chief for God's sake. Why wouldn't he fix it immediately? American's should demand Secretary of State Chuck Hagel resign and anyone else who was responsible for this action. They have all violated the sacred trust that is owed to our military and their families. It is a national disgrace. This falls directly in Obama's lap. This should have a chilling effect on every freedom loving American to see where he chooses to inflict the maximum pain.
"We the People" had better wake up and reclaim ownership of America. If we don't, the harm to this country will be irreparable.
Shame on Washington, D.C. They are not deserving to serve the American people and should be shown out the back door.
