It Begins… White House Turkey Is Pardoned, Then Euthanized

It’s an Obama world…
Even turkeys fear the Obama death panels.

A turkey pardoned by President Obama last year was euthanized Monday, and officials are insisting the timing of the death — days before the Thanksgiving holiday — is not suspicious.

Peace, the White House turkey pardoned by Barack Obama in 2011, was put down this week.
WPTV reported:

Peace, one of two turkeys pardoned by President Obama last year, was euthanized Monday, according to an official who insisted the timing of the death – days before the Thanksgiving holiday – was not suspicious.

Rebecca Aloisi, vice president for marketing at the Mount Vernon Estate, confirmed that Peace had been dead after a weekend “illness.” But Aloise knew neither the nature of the illness, the manner of death, nor what had been done with the remains of the large, edible bird.

“I appreciate where you’re going with this,” Aloisi told CNN. “But I assure you that these birds are extremely well cared for.” The decision to euthanize the bird was made by a veterinarian in consultation with Mount Vernon’s livestock department, she said.

    I tried to get through the youtube video of Obama and his snarky attitude with just the right undertones of his past win and the comment on FORWARD.

    maybe their is more I can criticizes him for, just give it a minute.

    #20 Yes thank you …I didn’t catch that…. so it wasn’t the exact same bird he pardoned 3 days ago…but God struck the turkey named Peace while the Holy Land goes up in Hell . still a BAD omen.

    A Butcher Carves the Turkey

    I realize this is a political website, but I love this video and just wanted to share it with you all today. I thought, really, who’s going to object if I put it up?

    Every year before carving the turkey I watch this video to remind myself how an expert does it. You’ll see, it eliminates all the struggling and sawing and will result in a great platter of turkey meat.

    And your family will think you’re some kind of turkey carving genius. And that can’t be bad.

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.


    Gobbler or Cobbler does it really matter, the end is always the same.

    A Special Thanksgiving Message

    As some of you may be aware, I’m not exactly known as the ‘hope’ guy around the office. I tend to have what some would describe as a ‘negative’ outlook on certain things such as the economy. Hope and I have sort of a tumultuous relationship. Some days we get along great, other days we fight. While sometimes hope vanishes entirely and I don’t see it again for a while – as was the case just a few days ago on November 6th. I found it hard to get my mind wrapped around the fact that Obama was going to have another four years to work on destroying – or fundamentally transforming, as he would say – America.

    But here’s the thing about hope – it always comes back. And it didn’t take long after the election for me to gain the proper perspective. While the current President may be one of the most astoundingly incompetent, radically left, Eurocentric & egomaniacal presidents America has ever had – I still have hope because he is not bigger than the people. And he’s certainly not bigger than God.


    Truth is, I’m not as pessimistic as everyone makes me out to be. I know that even on our darkest days, I am joined by people across the country who are working every minute of every day to make sure our neighborhoods and our local communities are on the right track. I know that parents are out there teaching the lessons that will one day grow the next George Washington, the next Abraham Lincoln, and the next Martin Luther King, Jr. I know that people are waking up, and that the embers of freedom will never be extinguished as long as some of us are willing to keep the fires burning.

    And I know that even on nights when I am far away from home, I can hear my wife’s voice and remember that real answers will only be found through family and faith.

    And now to another point I was trying to get across earlier. Here in Beck’s message he too as I call Obama incompetent.

    Beck: President may be one of the most astoundingly incompetent, radically left………..

    donh. At first I, too, thought it was one of the 2012 birds, but remembered neither of the two had been named Peace.

    Suurrre…. “Euthanized.” Okay. Uh-huh.


    Euthanized and “recycled” as energy…. lol 😀

    Peace had actually been quite a celebrity. After his presidential pardon he’d been allowed a lot of access to the White House. I suspect he saw and heard things that he shouldn’t have. I think Peace was “dealt with” just like Vince Foster was. Or hell maybe mi’chelle obama ate him for a snack.

    This drives me nuts. I hate spin be it from the left, right or whatever. The headline on this story is very misleading and very wrong. It does not do our, conservative, cause any good at all to spin stories to make the left look bad. they do a good enough job of that on their own. This turkey was pardoned last year. Animals get sick. Animals are euthanized. No real story here. But to try and spin it as the headline does is just making the right look petty and sinking to the left’s low tactics.

    I love ALL of Patty’s comments..every last one of them rather they are on TOPIC are not. You don’t have to read them.

    I listened to Rush’s story about the history of Thanksgiving-it was very interesting. Especially how it first started with the pilgrims being in a commune-sharing everything–he told about Bradford giving each one of them some land–and freedom (free enterprise) to grow whatever they wanted! They were not limited, it provided them enlightment, there was a abundance of food, they shared and gave thanks for this opportunity to have freedom and not be ruled by the King of England.

    Yesterday my son went with his girlfriend to her parents house for Thanksgiving dinner-all liberals except them. He was first attacked for being a Christian, then, he was attacked for being a conserative. He did well defending himself. Her liberal mom, said, “who is your favorite President” she chuckled, Reagan? he replied, “Our founding Fathers”. They replied,”oh really” and proceeded to attack him some more. They told him well we ought to keep religion out of politics”–he calmy said, “I disagree, our principles were based on religion” that’s why our money has “IN GOD WE TRUST”. We built our country, America so you could be free-the liberties you enjoy today were built on GOD, religion.

    I was very proud of him. Steadfast…be strong. Guard the guild to your mind, fore they will attack you, we must be the light for those who cannot see.

    other well known conservative.. :-(
