Just as Memorial Day is not about picnics and barbecues, water fountain tributes to American military veterans are not to be used as swimming pools.

As temperatures climb and give rise to a search for ways to cool off, one method is definitely off-limits as seen in a video taken at the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Although it is not clear when the video was taken, viewers can hear the question being asked of the alleged “migrants” wading and swimming in the waters.

“You know this is a memorial for the soldiers, right?” they are asked, but don’t appear to get it.

Dozens of adults and children are seen in the video as they use the memorial as a personal escape from the heat, ignoring the sign that bans the exact activity.

Many social media users were equally as appalled and, though there was the occasional voice which defended the people’s right to get wet in a veteran’s water memorial, others roundly condemned the move as disrespectful.

And it seems the problem is not strictly limited to migrants who may not be able to read English.

What can be said about this that makes any sense today? I guess put in Spanish or other languages DO NOT SWIM here in respect to this monument? I have visited there. Should arrest people in the future? Makes one very sick to see this today.

Ignorant foreigners. Third world pigs. They don't follow the law at the borders, why would we expect them to follow any of our laws and respect our history. They are damn lucky all the WW II veterans are in their 90's or gone. Thank you for sharing this disrespectful behavior with those of us that could not be there. And thank you for your efforts to restore solemnity for our parents. I could not and would not be nearly as polite as you. ie:https://youtu.be/bsdHxUXf2CE

What can we expect, this is how they probably live in their country. I live in Ohio, and one of our Kohl's store had to close because the Immigrants were using the ladies dressing room to use as a bathroom. Poop and Pee

a generous amount of glass shards in the water around the edge of the pool would do nicely.

What do you expect from people with at best 5-6th grade education and only coming here for the freebies America passes out. Destitute in their own country, where the only respect is violence, by asking for respect you are speaking for an unknown model of behavior.

This pisses me off to no end. My grandfather served in WWII. He passed away not too long ago. And to see these people disrespect this memorial makes me want that border wall even more. They come here and ignore our laws, culture, etc.(not all of them). I'm not saying they should forget about their language & culture but they should also learn our language & culture which could be very beneficial to them. They should learn how this country came to exist. And how many of our people served and died doing so in order for us to have our freedom. Where were the police when these people were doing this? Did anyone call the cops to inform them of what these people were doing this disrespectful, horrible activities?

These scum should have been arrested and severely fined or given jail time. Then, if they are here illegally, deport them with the understanding that if they are found in the USA again, they will be shot and tossed into the ocean.

My brother, a war veteran is probably wanting to claw his at out of his coffin. This hurts my heart, and this is one reason why we are becoming anti anyone coming into our country. This is all being done on purpose to take down our country. People need to rise up before we become just like uk.

They are not "migrants" or "immigrants" unless they are on visa or are currently, actively seeking citizenship. They are "aliens" and/or "invaders". I'm so effing sick of this. I get especially sick of it around April 15th.

They should shut off the water and drain the fountains until these invaders get the message! There are enough public pools out there and that's where they should go (preferably in their own countries!)!

This is typical for little children that don't know better. But, no excuse for adults to condone this. That is unless you are an illegal immigrant that already has disrespected our RULE OF LAW. ITS OUR GOVT THAT SHOULD BE DEALING WITH THIS. ITS A SIMPLE PROBLEM. VOTE THE BUMS OUT IF THEY DO NOT RESPECT TGE NEED TO CORRECT THIS INJUSTICE TO OUR CONSTITUTION AND OUR RULE OF LAW. 2020 RETOOL CONGRESS VOTE EM OUT, MAKE EM ACCOUNTABLE AS OUR ELECTED LEADERS. NO EXCUSES, NO DISCUSSIONS, WHEN YOU GO INSIDE THE VOTING BOX VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE. IF.... you vote for the people that condone this CRAP BEHAVIOR then it's your fault. Suck it up butter cup. If you like 3rd world civilization and Customs, then go visit one. This is America and we will bout stand for this CRAP much longer. ARGUE EXCUSES AND TOLERANCE FOR ILLEGALS AT YOUR OWN EXPENSE.

There should have been some kind of official there to let people know this is not acceptable behavior. I'm sure it started innocently enough, and was a kind of snowball effect. Once one went in, then another, then another. The dirty feet are bad enough, but you know there was at least one person, probably more, who thought it just fine to use the memorial as a toilet. I'm really surprised no Vet stepped forward to correct the situation.

Is there no end or limit to what these people will do to our country? I say our because all of the posts save one, agree that those people in the pool should be run out or arrested. They just don't care about America except what they can get in welfare or wade their stinky bodies in a memorial pool.

This is what they think of America they do not care as long as they get their Freebies they don’t give a crap! This is outrageous and it makes me sick! Someone should be responsible for watching over this memorial so this doesn’t happen ever again! So glad this gentleman tried to teach these ingrates some manners anyway but they obviously don’t know any better!

Actually this man went about this the wrong way. These people were not paying any attention to him. The better course is to round up a dozen ex soldiers in the area and with loud angry voices force every one out of the water. That they would listen to because they would be afraid for their children.

This is from two? years ago, in the height of summer. What is the purpose of posting it now, other than to stir shlt? Is it disgusting and totally inappropriate? Damn right. But it happened under the Obama and I only see one reason to post it. They that come into our country illegally, are not “illegal immigrants”, “undocumented immigrants”, or “immigrants” of any stripe. They are by U.S. law, “illegal aliens”. To name them “immigrants” is to confer on them a quasi-legal status that they have neither earned or deserve.

The youth of today wether they are here illegally or otherwise have never been taught to respect these memorials. So why are we surprised to see this. I blame parents and teachers and I blame the government for creating the ability for those lessons to be ignored. They have failed us as a nation.

I can’t assume they are illegal, immigrants or unable to read English, however I can expect the park rangers to ensure respectful behavior at all national treasures. As for the classlessness of some people, I find this is not unique in America. While traveling in Australia we visited a national park where the fairy penguins would come to the beach at night to rest. All throughout the park and over the PA system in several languages were warnings not to use flash photography when the penguins came to shore. Guess what? The Asian tourists ignored the warnings and took flash photos. It was equally disrespectful to the country they were visiting.

Things just keep getting worse by the day. I'm afraid at this point Respect has taken a backseat to the communist, Muslims and the New World Order is descending upon us at a rapid rate.

The true question here is: Where are the guards?????

These aren't migrants, they're illegals. How did they get there in the first place? Who put them up to getting in the pool? Was this paid for by someone in the Democrat party wanting these people to be given citizenship? These people would have to make a special effort to get there and why weren't others jumping in the other polls or the Potomac River? This was probably something planned by someone like the Communist Luis Gutierrez, to show his contempt for the country.

Better get used to it. If Nancy and Chuck have their way we'll have this behavior in every corner of our "used to be" great country. But of course our elite Democratic politicians won't have to put up with this in their luxury gated communities. Our only chance is to defeat all Democrats wherever they may be and then "weed out" the useless Republicans that won't do their jobs and stand behind President Trump and build his essential wall that we so desperately need to control this kind of behavior! We definitely need a "red wave" in Congress this coming November! Ignore the polls and don't take any leads for granted. Work your asses off by spreading the word: Defeat Democrats in November!! We'll get the WALL and then Donald Trump will take it from there!

Notice someone put a photo of a "white" family wading, at the end. First, it's one small family, not a village. Second, they should have been kicked out, too. Somehow Dems, Libs, & Mohammedans seem to think that just because someone else does something, it's OK for them, too. Sort of like Mohammedans saying it's OK that Islm torturs, r.apes, enslavs, & does other bad things to kufars today because long ago there was a thing called the Crusades (which stopped the Islmic takeover of the world back then)

They come here illegally, use our resources, take advantage of every possible welfare opportunity meant for legal citizens, then they show this kind of disrespect? When are we going to put a stop to this? No other country would allow this so why do we? Yes, we’re a free country and we should allow people to come here and take advantage of our opportunity ifor freedom - legally. But the minute they step int9 this country illegally, all bets should be off and the freedoms should stop!

I am sooo sick and tired of all of this shit. Both my father and my brother fought for this country. I miss them so very much but they are in a much better place. I am so glad that they do not to put up with all the crap we do. Putting up with all the disrespect and problems we are getting from the immigrants is getting really old. I would like to know why no one can do any thing about them. They come here get all the benefits they want, get aid, phones. They do what they want and don't even worry about getting in trouble. All they have to do is say it was wrong because they were a immigrant and was not treated right. Then some bleeding heart democrat will come to their side and fight for them. When will some one put an end to all this and just send them back where they belong.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump’s Defense Team Absolutely Ruins Democrats With 13 Minute Montage of “Fight” Word Like Trump Did

Published

The Democrats demonized President Trump for using the word ‘fight’. Trump’s attorneys responded today with a collage of clips from each of the Democrats in the room using the word ‘fight’.

This portion of today’s events on Capitol Hill was excellent. The Democrats claim that because President Trump used the word ‘fight’ in his speech on January 6th in Washington D.C. However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
