Obama was at the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ National Convention on Tuesday speaking about veterans’ issues.

Not every vet in attendance was happy about the President’s presence.

One protesting vet held up a sign that read “The Emperor Benghazi Has No Clothes.” His fellow veterans in the crowd didn’t take too kindly to the man’s gesture… I have to ask WHY?!

UPDATE #2…

What happened was, Cliff Sims on his radio show @ 101.1, from 9-11am cst, asked all of us to contact the Governor how we felt. Boom, many calls and JUST 5 hours later…Proof that WE can make a difference.Bentley reacted quickly from the pressure. Now, we want to see heads roll at ALDOT for doing this against state law!~ JP

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Governor Robert Bentley announced Friday afternoon that he ordered all “no weapons allowed” signs removed from Alabama’s rest areas after readers of Yellowhammer News contacted the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) this week asking the agency to justify their policy.

I have ordered the AL Department of Transportation to remove signs banning weapons at all Alabama rest stops to comply with state law.

— Gov. Robert Bentley (@GovernorBentley) July 24, 2015

The Governor’s director of communications, Jennifer Ardis, explained further.

This afternoon, @GovernorBentley ordered ALDOT to remove the signs banning weapons at all AL rest stops to comply with state law.

The staff at ALDOT will begin removing signs today to comply with @GovernorBentley’s order.

UPDATE:

In a followup conversation Thursday, Harris said the agency is waiting for the attorney general’s office to weigh in on whether ALDOT has the authority to implement the gun ban without legislative authorization.

A spokesperson from the attorney general’s office told Yellowhammer they are currently reviewing the matter after receiving complaints from the public.

After multiple requests for comment were ignored, Yellowhammer was contacted Wednesday by ALDOT spokesperson Tony Harris, who said readdressing the policy is not currently a priority for the agency, although he acknowledged they had received some public opposition to the gun free zones.

“We don’t want this to be a distraction for us,” said Harris. “You can probably imagine we have a lot of issues we deal with day in and day out.”

ALDOT enactment seems to contradict state law, which gives “the Legislature complete control over regulation and policy pertaining to firearms, ammunition, and firearm accessories in order to ensure that such regulation and policy is applied uniformly throughout this state to each person subject to the state’s jurisdiction and to ensure protection of the right to keep and bear arms recognized by the Constitutions of the State of Alabama and the United States.”

State Representative Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) told Yellowhammer he believes the ALDOT has clearly overreached its authority:

“I think that’s certainly an overstep,” he said. “The Second Amendment is pretty clear: [government] shall not infringe. It seems like more and more, government tends to infringe on our right to bear arms. If anything I think we need to be getting rid of gun-free zones, not creating more of them.”

Thanks to YellowHammer for staying on this.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) has banned firearms at rest stops along the state’s highways and many are questioning its legal authority to do so. Despite being an open-carry and concealed-carry state, Alabama now has signs at every rest station that read “no weapons beyond this point”.

ALDOT cites Section 25-1-59(c) of the Alabama Code that gives it them power to “prescribe any reasonable rules and regulations so as to prevent unnecessary trespassing upon or injury to any of the public roads, bridges, or highways of the state upon which state money may be expended or appropriated or upon any part of the right-of-way of any of the public roads or highways in the state upon which state money may be expended or appropriated.”

In their own administrative rule 450-3-1-.08(3), ALDOT created a regulation under the authority of Ala. Code 25-1-59 which reads:

“No person other than a duly authorized law enforcement officer shall enter any Alabama Department of Transportation building with a firearm as defined in Section 13A-8-1(4), Code of Ala. 1975, without the written permission of the Director.”

Read on, then get busy contacting AL Gov etc.

In an interview with the BBC, Mr Obama said it was “distressing” not to have made progress on the issue “even in the face of repeated mass killings”.

He vowed to keep trying, but the BBC’s North America editor Jon Sopel said the president did not sound very confident.

However, Mr Obama said race relations had improved during his presidency.

I swear he seems high in this interview:

In a wide-ranging interview, Planet Obama also said:

* UK must stay in the EU to have influence on the world stage
* He is confident the Iran nuclear deal will be passed by Congress
* Syria needs a political solution in order to defeat the Islamic State group
* He would speak “bluntly” against corruption and human rights violations in Kenya
* He would defend his advocacy of gay rights following protests in Kenya
* Despite racial tensions, the US is becoming more diverse and more tolerant

Winning chamber was useless :

From his Twitter Acct:

The American people were told: If only we get a Republican majority in the Senate and retire Harry Reid, then things will be different.

We need to ask ourselves if this is why we are in the majority: To make deals with Democrats to reauthorize cronyism & pass a spending bill

~ Ted Cruz

From the WT today:

Sen. Ted Cruz brazenly tore into his own party’s leaders (TrumpedIt)Friday, saying Republican rule in the Senate is hardly different than it was under Democrats, as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tried to appease both parties with a compromise on the highway bill.

The leader lied to him when he said there wasn’t pact in the works to revive the federal Export-Import Bank, an agency that finances the sale of U.S. goods overseas and lapsed June 30.

“The majority leader looked at me and said there is no deal there is no deal, there is no deal, there is no deal. Like St. Peter, he said it three times,” Mr. Cruz said, referring to an episode at a party luncheon after lawmakers debated President Obama’s trade agenda.

* SEE from June James O’Keefe: BUSTED!: Politicians Cash In on Export Import Bank

From Ted’s Twitter:

Then-Senator Barack Obama described Ex-Im as an example of corporate welfare. Now that he’s President, corporate welfare sounds pretty good.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticizes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for filing an amendment to the highway funding bill to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank and preventing senators from offering additional amendments by filling the amendment tree. He calls Senator McConnell’s actions “procedural abuse” and compares his tactics to those of now-Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) when he was majority leader.

The #WashingtonCartel hard at work. #EndExIm

Senator Harry Reid @SenatorReid
I commend @SenateMajLdr for setting up a vote to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank. This bill is critically important for U.S. businesses.

* We have all you need tyo know right here regarding the IMF

WHY?!

On July 21..

Captian Greg Van Patten with the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News Thursday that the county’s marijuana eradication team encountered Bergdahl on Tuesday while serving a search warrant on a home in Redwood City, Calif.

Van Patten said Bergdahl was detained, but ultimately was “determined not to be connected to the operation, at least there was no evidence to suggest he was involved.”

When Bergdahl encountered the law enforcement team, Van Patten said he identified himself while the sheriff’s office reached out to the Department of Defense. The agency confirmed Bergdahl was on leave, and asked for their assistance in getting him back.

Full story

WHY is this traitorous PUNK given special treatment from minute one?! WHY is he back on active duty?!

According to CNN:, only July 14th being reported he returned to active duty that day!

Less than two months later, the Army announced Monday that Bergdahl has completed medical care and mental counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio.

He is going to get back to work, the Army said.

The soldier will soon take a desk job at Fort Sam Houston, said U.S. Army North spokesman Don Manuszewski

Bergdahl will be assigned to a unit responsible for homeland defense, civil support operations and security cooperation programs involving countries such as Canada, Mexico and the Bahamas.

say-what

Why on obama’s planet, is he the golden child? WHO IS Bergdahl, a spy, what? We need to dig deep for the answers of his constant preferential treatment for sure. ~JP

Wesley Clark said that during World War II, “if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech, we put him in a camp, they were prisoners of war.

Clark specifically stated, If these people are radicalized and don’t support the United States, and they’re disloyal to the United States, as a matter of principal that’s fine, that’s their right. It’s our right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict.

“We have got to identify the people who are most likely to be radicalized. We’ve got to cut this off at the beginning,” Clark said. “I do think on a national policy level we need to look at what self-radicalization means because we are at war with this group of terrorists.”

If Jade Helm 15 teaches us anything, it is this admin thinks of US as the radicals! ~ JP
