White House, Democratic Senate shuts down government’s AMBER Alert child-abduction site.
Red State ^ | 10/6/2013 | Moe Lane

Posted on 10/07/2013 6:39:32 AM PDT by IbJensen

This is what you get when you go to

http://amberalert.gov/:

For those unaware, the cache of the above site gives the following description of the AMBER Alert system:

The AMBER Alert™ Program is a voluntary partnership between law-enforcement agencies, broadcasters, transportation agencies, and the wireless industry, to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child-abduction cases. The goal of an AMBER Alert is to instantly galvanize the entire community to assist in the search for and the safe recovery of the child.

…unless, of course, there’s a government shutdown and the President doesn’t want to admit that the House of Representatives has control over the purse strings. Then I guess it’s hope that the kids come back on their own, like pets or something; either way, the Feds are just going to be over there, washing their hands of the whole situation.

The mind reels at these people.

Moe Lane

PS: As noted here, via this program the Department of Justice is supposed to coordinate on a national level the various programs used in all of the states (and DC). This means that – thank God – states can still put the word out on abduction cases; unfortunately, this boneheaded decision is likely to degrade national coordination methods. Besides, I personally think that keeping that program operating at peak efficiency is just a little more important than soothing Barack Obama’s and Harry Reid’s wounded egos.

This whole thing has been more than worth it for exposing how petty and vindictive this evil Obama administration is. I don't care if the GOP looses a bit of popular opinion on the shutdown itself. In the long run I believe more people will remember the ugliness from the Democratic side. If not, then we are surely doomed anyway as a society and as a country.

Between this and Harry Reid's comment about not helping children with cancer this should make it very clear to the American people that these people don't give a damn about this nation's children. They're just another object to use to advance their agenda.

This corrupt regime takes a break from arming al Qaeda
to allow the criminal illegals and felons it released
to abduct children.

DISGUSTING.

If we found we had cancer and would die if it were not excised, we’d have it excised.

America has a growing life-threatening cancer.

Bowbama only wants to shut down things that are important, or at least, semi-important, ie ocean, parks, veterans' memorials, etc., to the common (us) folks.

Why hasn't NPR been shut down?

Consider the emotions today of all those Federal Employees who have young children.

They are not going to be happy, happy, happy with Barry’s AG Eric Holder for stopping the National AMBER ALERT Program over the weekend.

Surely, Mr. Fast and Furious Holder thought this Amber Alert cancellation through and made an exception of Michelle Obama’s children?

BTW, I wonder if Barry, General of the Senate Harry “Mean Ol’ Guy” Reid, and Colonel of her former self Nancy “Always in a fog” Pelosi realize that other Federal employees ALSO have young children that need to be protected by the National Amber Alert Program?

BTW, BTW, the boy-toy, wanna-be dictator Barry Soetoro, aka Mr. Michelle Obama, COULD order his personal Corporate Jet, Air Force One, to be mothballed, by Executive Order, of course. (He must have a few blank EO forms lying around his empty chair, or his Golf bag - - - ).

That simple gesture just might, could, show that Barry also “feels our pain.”

Barry could also BARRYCADE his own personal Golf Course, BARRYCADE the Oceans, only on Federal land, of course. (Governors are so touchy these days about their State’s shorelines)!

Which is more important? Camp David or Amber Alert?

This is more evidence that the federal government does too much. Time to give much of it back to the states.

The EPA is operational despite furloughing 93% of the staff.

Name any business anywhere that could furlough 93% of its staff and remain operational.

so the obama admin doesn’t care if children are abducted and abused, yet finds a way to send the communists at PBS $445 million to advance their crypto-socialist and homosexual-degenrate agenda?

They do no care about kidnapped children. This is evidence of that.

They do not care about kids with cancer on clinical trials. Reid’s words are evidence to that.

All these stories are a sideshow. The debt is the real threat.

The WSJ is running an article today on page A11 that says the CBO has just radically altered its long range budget projections in September, and this is being totally ignored by the media. Get this...

Before the most current projection, the CBO was saying the debt in public hands was supposed to slide down to 0 by the year 2070 based on a number of “assumptions”.

The “adjustment” the CBO just made to this fiction was that by 2076 the debt would be over 200% of GDP. I sh*t you not. From “0” to over 200% of GDP.

The question is no longer if the US will default, but rather on which of its spiraling liabilities it will default on.

This is the real news Obama is trying to cover up with the help of a compliant media.

Do it for the children!

What about all that food rotting on commissary shelves? If the base commanders have any balls, they need to at least set the food out for families to take for free. Look at all that fresh produce and milk Moochelle is all about that's going to waste. Moo obviously doesn't care about military families' children.

Is there any proof that the site was shut down? I’d hate to see the leftists come out and claim this was a “right wing lie.”

Oh it was definitely shut down, it had this message posted:

It STILL is, I just checked it. Are you sure you are on the right site?

Go to Google and type in "Amber alert" and you will see the official website. Then click it and you will be directed to that message above.
