Feds Back Down to Allow Vets Access to WWII Memorial on Wednesday - Newsmax - Hours after a feud looked certain to blow up over access to Washington's World War II Memorial, the federal government backed down and said veterans would be allowed in.The climb down was the result of a groundswell of complaints joined by a growing contingent of lawmakers who met the vets at the memorial site Wednesday morning to ensure a dignified visit. There, the scene was emotional as one veteran played Taps and most stood in rapt attention, BuzzFeed's Benny Johnson tweeted Hundreds of veterans are due to fly to Washington to visit the memorial, which was barricaded Tuesday because of the government shutdown. About 90 veterans who turned up Tuesday got access only after Republican Rep. Steven Palazzo of Mississippi helped to cut police tape and move concrete barriers. The scene was expected to be repeated Wednesday, before the Park Service climb down. Palazzo, a Gulf War marine veteran, had planned to sponsor legislation that would have allowed access during the shutdown, saying the Obama administration was using politics against men who deserve to be honored, not pushed aside. "At first I thought it was a huge bureaucratic oversight, but having talked with officials, I can't help but think it was politically motivated," Palazzo told the Daily Caller. "Honor Flights, which bring WWII veterans to the nation's memorials, are planned a year in advance and can cost anywhere between $80,000 to $100,000. How low can you get with playing politics over our nation's veterans?" Read more........

(2) National Institute of Health Offering Grants to Study Medical Care for Elderly Based on Relieving Symptoms, Including Pain, Instead of Trying to Cure Underlying Disease - CNS News, Inc. - The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is soliciting applications for federal grants worth up to $275,000 to research ways to provide elderly patients with “palliative care” – even in hospital emergency rooms and intensive care units. Palliative care is commonly understood to mean medical treatment that focuses on relieving symptoms, including pain, instead of trying to treat or cure the underlying disease. But researchers will not be studying the use of palliative care to relieve the suffering of dying patients. “Hospice and end-of-life settings are not included within the scope” of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the grant notices specifically state. Instead, they will be looking at new ways to provide elderly patients with palliative care long before they are at death’s door. Read more.........

(3) Thank Allah For Democrats - By the Time our Democrats Figure Out They Were Played by Islamists and Take the Rest of Us Down With Them, it Will be too Late - American Thinker - Nations have been lying to and attacking their enemies for millennia. Leaders of one nation have told lies about their goals and objectives to the leaders of other nations since the beginning of nations. We who think and read are easily able to tell when the leader of our liberal nation is lying to the conservative nation. We care too much about our country not to know the truth, and besides, his lips were moving. But what is it that prevents the left from ever once understanding that it is being lied to on an equally constant basis by those who would destroy our country from without in the name of world domination? It has been truly astonishing to watch liberals fall all over themselves proclaiming a new beginning with Iran because the newest Iranian politicians lied to the president and his equally absurd media agents. Aside from there being a different face, nothing about Iran or what it is doing, or has been doing, has changed one iota. The new figurehead leader was handpicked by the same Ayatollah who controlled the last figurehead leader. The nuclear program goes on unabated. Their goals and objectives have not changed. Their efforts have not slackened. They have offered no tokens of verifiable change, and they have given nothing in consideration for the new light in which the left suddenly views them. ......The leftists want so badly to believe in the fantasies by which they live their lives that they literally cannot see or process objective evidence that proves them to be fools. Facts and logic are fatal to liberals. Read more........
