Another slap in the face of Veterans…
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) —The missing man flyover at Pearl Harbor is a tradition USS Arizona and National Park Service historian Daniel Martinez has witnessed every December 7 since 1985.
“When you see that aircraft apart in that missing man formation, every one of us individualize what that means,” he said.
But that emotion won’t be there this year. The F-22 Raptors piloted by the Hawaii Air National Guard are under orders not to perform.
“There have been restrictions on all kinds of flyovers across the country. We were not able to get an exception of policy to do this one,” Hawaii National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Chuck Anthony said.
Pearl Harbor survivors are understandably upset.
“I’m totally disgusted. The one day of the year when we’re honoring our military from World War II,” said retired U.S. Army Sgt. Allen Bodenlos.
“Every year I watch for the flight. I have those flights on the camera. To not see a flyover, I can’t imagine,” said Delton Walling, who was aboard the USS Pennsylvania when Japan attacked in 1941.
Until Washington gives the thumbs up, missing man flyovers over Hawaii skies will be a thing of the past.
Keith Koffler reports on the heavy burden the Obama Hawaiian family vacation places on American taxpayers:
Air Force One is known to cost about $180,000 an hour to fly. Based on an estimated 18 hours roundtrip flying time for the flight between Washington and Honolulu, the travel cost alone of Obama’s annual Hawaii sojourn amounts to around $3.24 million. And that doesn’t include the price tag for the massive security operation required to move the president or the cost of the cargo plane that follows Air Force One around.

The quote of the day:
“One’s a communist who’s reduced his country to ruins, the other’s Raul Castro.”
Score one for ‘good guys with a gun’.
MARIONVILLE, MO (SPRINGFIELD NEWS LEADER) — [...] A veteran of four tours in Iraq. A 30-year military man. A former prison guard, private investigator, professional extraditor of federal prisoners and – perhaps most important on this particular Sunday night – a proud owner of a Walther PPX 9 mm handgun.
Loaded, with one in the chamber, like he always carries it.
Jon Lewis Alexander, 54, of Marionville, thwarted a robbery about 9 p.m. Sunday [Sept. 1, 2013] at Beer 30 on East Logan Street in Marionville – after the would-be robber pulled his weapon first.
As a store security video shows, Alexander used his left hand to push the robber’s handgun back while – in a smooth but rapid motion – pulling and swinging his 9 mm into the robber’s face. The man’s mouth, to be exact, as the robber haplessly holds his own weapon at his side.
The man came in the store smoking a cigarette, and Alexander said he quickly explained that was against the rules. Within seconds, the man in a gray T-shirt was at the counter, demanding “all the (expletive deleted) money.”
In less than three seconds, as Alexander threw out a couple of expletives of his own and threatened to “blow his (expletive deleted) head off,” the man is seen in the video backing away, his own firearm still at his side.
It is well past noon but we should cut the narcissist in chief a break, finding just the right O self aggrandizing selfie to commemorate the day takes time!
UPDATE: it is 4:00 pm in DC and still no sign of any remembrance of Pearl Harbor from the Obama White House Twitter account. That is not to say that a new tweet hasn’t popped up though.
The same goes for the Barack Obama (OFA) Twitter account. His minions took the time to tweet about Obamacare but have still not bothered to tweet a remembrance of Pearl harbor.
4pm in DC & there are 21 that's right 21 freaking tweets re: nelson mandela on the wh twitter feed but ZERO in remembrance of Pearl Harbor!

‘O’, what a disgrace.
I kid you not…
(1OneMinuteNews) –Guccifer is a prolific hacker known for hacking Washington DC’s elite, most memorably George W. Bush’s email account. As a result we all got a glimpse of what the former President can do with a brush. Infinitely funnier are Bill Clinton’s doodles, something the Clinton Foundation long refused to share with the public.
Just imagine what a Guccifer hack of Barack “luckier than a dog with two dicks” Obama would reveal.
I’ll leave the interpretation of Clinton’s doodles to others. But at first glance I too found the Bush shower scene to be bizarre. Though think about it, in today’s busy world many find it increasingly hard to find time to themselves. Now multiply that times a hundred for a president. Perhaps Bush’s art was a personal commentary of his lack of personal time to reflect (get it mirror…reflect) and that his daily shower time was one of the rare moments he had time to do so.
