Wise move on the part of the Secret Service. These vets have a history of killing Nazis.

At this point I see no reason why the what 500 veterans of Normady still alive shouldn't be allowed to visit whenever they wish too.

Maybe Prince Harry, who has done much in support of British Veterans, can bring them all as part of his entourage. I guess Der Dotard wants only his SS friends to be there. The only problem: they are all dead...

I wonder what kind of drugs donald's handlers are going to use to keep him from ------- this up?

Omaha Beach would be a tough place to start on "Crooked Hillary" and "We got 304!"

#5 Oh, we're past that now. It will be the "Collusion Delusion", "347 Angry Democrat Coup" and "Sleepy Joe" for at least 3/4 of the speech.

Whenever and wherever they wish.

They deserve way more than we can give them. They deserve to be moved to the head of any line they ever find themselves in and they should never be charged a dime for anything.

Without their sacrifice and the sacrifice of their brothers in arms we would not be here. We might be speaking German and Heir Trump would be President of the World.


Ok well, thanks to them at least we aren't speaking German. Yet.

Like I posted before, payback is a bitch...................

Donald Trump will be denied the historic honour of addressing parliament during his state visit to the UK next month, government sources have confirmed. In a major snub to the US President, lingering hopes of him delivering a speech to MPs and peers have been dashed following defiant opposition by Commons Speaker John Bercow, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and others.

"He said: 'We didn't have all this security last time I landed in Normandy. In fact, I didn't even need my passport."

Oh, hate blinds people so much. So, I guess he completely missed the thousands of Hitler security personnel in attendance at the beach trying to kill him. Just because they weren't his own country's security doesn't make them any less the main form of security for Hitler and Co. There was security on the beach and it was exponentially worse than anything this vet sees today.

But, let's get to DR's comprehension problem:

"Now they have been told their movements on June 6 will be heavily restricted due to the number of VIPs in attendance - including President Trump."
"President Trump and the Queen will attend the event - but ordinary members of the public will be blocked from view."
"He has now revealed that the event will have to be surrounded by a two layers of security fencing, preventing uninvited members of the public from being able to watch the ceremony on Southsea Common also being attended by the Queen."
"Mr Vernon-Jackson explained that the security measures were being ramped up from those originally planned when the monarch was the only world leader expected to attend.
He added that heads of state of the 14 nations involved in D-Day, as well as the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, had subsequently all been invited. "

Soooooo...which is it? Are DR Libs just ignoring what's in an article or are they just choosing to fuel and propagate hate by just reading a headline? Trump is one of many people who will be attending that is a VIP, thus security has been modified to match. Yet the article and the vets just bitch bitch bitch about Trump, as if it wasn't already easy enough to see the bias involved with their love of hate. I do like how the author tries to spin it to be all Trump's fault for the increased security but kudos to the journalist, as well, for keeping all the facts in there and letting intelligent people actually form the proper conclusions instead of just reading the headline. This at least shows some integrity.

The headline clearly states that Trump has banned 2 UK vets from visiting Omaha Beach.
Ask yourself if Theresa May could ban any US vet from there.
NO she couldn't.
Huffmyshorts click bait to spread more hate.

If there is one thing Trump cannot handle, it is humiliation. He'll huff and puff and find all kind of deflections, but it burns. Think of the humiliation for Trump knowing that Reagan, Clinton and Obama all addressed Parliament and the honor has been denied to him. So public and nothing he can do - I'd say that was putting up with English crapo, wouldn't you?
