  • President Trump honors fallen officers

    At the order of the POTUS, the lights that illuminate the exterior of the White House were tinted blue to honor fallen police officers. Monday marked the start of Police Memorial Week.

    In addition the flag is flown at half-mast and the POTUS attended memorial services.

    Obama refused to change the lights on the White House to honor fallen police officers during his terms. But he did order them to be changed to honor Prince after the musician (and addict) died of an overdose.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        Nice subject and then wham make it political. Nice.

          Fake right wing factoid. Fooled again.

          However, although a number of monuments and landmarks in the United States and around the world were lit up purple in April 2016 to memorialize the sudden passing of musician Prince, the White House was not among them. (The purple White House image shown above is just a color-tinted version of the rainbow-lit White House photograph.)

            Biggest right wing web idiot of the them all, Jim Hoft , of the website Gatewaypundit.com even knows that this is false.

            A fake Internet meme made the rounds over the weekend that used a doctored photo to falsely accuse the Obama White House of lighting the White House in purple to honor the rock star Prince when he died earlier this year.

                ..Obama/Holder went to comfort the parents of a criminal ! that assaulted a policeman and a store clerk!

                Holder, who didn’t speak out against the rioters until the night before he arrived in Missouri, is sending "teams of prosecutors and dozens of FBI agents to investigate" in addition to ordering a federal autopsy.
                for a criminal justifiably shot

                yes, it's about time we backed up civilized/decent/etc behavior and attack criminal/uncivilized behavior---instead of Obama backing up the thugs

                      Once again, a simple discussion about honoring fallen policemen goes rocketing off into the Twilight Zone.

                        "AJ" setup and launched the very rocket you post about. Or did you not read his actual post??? Their was nothing simple about it, it was based on an easily disproved falsehood.

                          I read it, and you are the person who is wrong throughout this discussion. Prince died of a deliberate, self-performed fentanyl overdose. He bought it, he took it and he died. Nothing "accidental" anywhere in that process.

                          I'm not normally a defender of AJ, as he will tell you himself, but I'm tired of the bickering, the bitching and the backbiting.

                            You missed it. I did not say anything about his death. Could care less about it.

                            The falsehood was that the Obama White House was lit up to honor Prince. It's simply false. So the very thing that AJ attacked the former President on in this thread is based on a lie.

                            Want to try again???
