Pope Pius the IX donated a block of marble for construction of the Washington Monument in March 1854, a group called the anti-Catholic Nativist American Party confiscated the block of stone and reportedly disposed of it in the Potomac River, this is how strong our forefathers felt about SEPERATION of CHURCH and STATE, the US is unique in history in that we demanded, was blessed and given a country without a King/Monarchy and State Church, this was not an accident, and was ordained by God, you dont believe this, look at the history of the reformation from the Dark Ages, and you can bet if we werent blessed, the Dark Ages would continue !!!
1963 – 2013, 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington On August 28, 1963, more than 200,000 blacks and whites from all over the United States gathered for a gigantic civil-rights demonstration in the nation’s capital. It was the largest demonstration in the history of Washington, D.C. Young and old, black and white, Jew and Gentile marched shoulder to shoulder from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial. The purpose was to demand passage of a civil-rights bill and immediate implementation of the basic guarantees of the Declaration of Independence and the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. Regarded by many as the apex of the nonviolent civil-rights movement, the march brought together all of the major civil-rights organizations and many religious groups. Among the strong supporters of the march were the American Jewish Congress, the National Conference of Catholics for Interracial Justice, and the National Council of Churches. Never before had leading repr ...

THIS DAY IN DELAWARE HISTORY On This Date in Delaware, March 05 ... 1850 Primarily through the efforts of John Jones, Sr., of Middletown, a War of 1812 veteran, Delaware's memorial stone was placed in the unfinished Washington Monument in the nation's capital. 1885 Delaware US Senator Thomas F.

March 3, 1913 holds great significance in the history of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. It is on that day when our 22 Founders showed the world that the women of Delta were committed to public service and social consciousness. It was also on that date when they – the ONLY African-American women’s organization in attendance – participated in the Women’s Suffrage March of 1913. This act of social advocacy, the FIRST act of this organization, is what truly set us apart from ALL others. Gathering at the Capitol, we will maintained the symbolic parade route down Pennsylvania Avenue; and assembled on the grounds of the Washington Monument for closing remarks. The event began at 9 a.m., with a parade route of approximately 3.1 miles. I met sorors from Alaska (not the ones I met at the Today Show founder's day weekend), Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Virginia. I was surprised when one of the first young sorors I met who was orginally from Kansas is now attending graduate school at ...
For this week's image, something from our past travels is the leading candidate to be published on this coming Friday.

REV Peter Marshall called our Poppa this helped inspired greatness in him so he had the courage as Head Elder to insure that Dr Martin Luther King spoke his I have a Dream speech with scripture base at The New York Ave Presbyterian Church an all white church. "Without causing a riot." Only then would the US Park Service and i believe the DC city government allowed the permit for his Speech at the Washington Monument . Poppa said this is something i can do to help draw a line in the sand this must stop! He knew it would be safe so he brought us his grandchildren there and we were able to meet and speak with Dr King. Courage of his Convictions!

One hundred years to the day after the Suffrage March, more than 10,000 (some say 15,000) members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc marched from the Capitol past the White House to the Washington Monument. In contrast to the 1913 march, we had amazing police support, the participation of several Past National Presidents including our oldest, Dr. Frankie Freeman, who served on the Civil Rights Commission in 1957, also Congresswoman and Past National President Marcia Fudge. Glad to have greetings from Sigma Gamma Rho and Zeta Phi Beta, missed our other sisters (invited) including our white sisters, four of whom spoke, but few chose to march with us.
What a great day. Went to the Smithsonian Museum. Went on the subway and took a taxi. Seen the Capitol building. And the Washington Monument. Going back tomorrow to C more sights.

Sorry folks I just feel so compelled to post these articles so people might read about the person who is in charge and suppose to be a LEADER. This is just to inform as my fear for this country and the direction its taking has never been greater. Apocalypse not O’s tricks on sequestration By MICHAEL A. WALSH Last Updated: 11:24 PM, February 27, 2013 Posted: 11:04 PM, February 27, 2013 Michael A. Walsh At the city level, it’s known as “firefighters first”; inside the Beltway, as the Washington Monument effect: In any budget crisis, the first thing politicians do is to inflict as much pain on the public as possible. Cut cops; close parks, libraries and emergency rooms. The idea is to make people suffer so they’ll clamor for tax increases — and keep the pols’ gravy train running smoothly. Never before, however, have we seen the tactic taken to such extremes on a national level as President Obama is now, as he hypes the allegedly dire consequences (a whopping 2 percent trim in the federal spendi ...

State of The Union? It's Behind Him.. President Barack Obama by David Icke The great Chinese philosopher Confucius (551-479 BC) said: ‘Signs and symbols rule the world, not words nor laws.’ There is a reason for this. When people speak they are transmitting a vibrating information field generated by the vocal chords. These vibrations are picked up by the ears of the receiver and transmitted electrically to the brain to be decoded into words. Everything is an information field and so it is with symbols. They are information fields that represent what they are meant to symbolize and they are transmitted to the brain through the visual senses (through which 80 per cent of the information the brain employs to construct reality is sourced). The difference is that when we hear sound such as words our conscious mind is aware of that, but when the information fields that we call symbols access the brain they do so subconsciously. Even if one or two register with the conscious mind only a few people realize wh ...

Excuse me for a moment, I'm doing backflips up the Washington Monument.
Yesterday was a very proud day in American history, and it seems few noticed. In the midst of all the turmul, heated debates and ugly bickering amoung our nation's leaders, there was a simple ceremony; a statue of Rosa Parks was unveiled as a permanent fixture in the United States Capitol building where the couragous lady's image will be among other great Americans that helped change our nation for the better. This makes me very proud to be an American, and more importantly, proud to be a human being, just as Rosa Parks made me proud. Last August i drove (again) to Washington D.C. to see the National Rev. Martin L. king Jr Monument (another Great American Hero and mentor of mine) and the WW2 and Korean War Monuments. Now i must go back and see the Rosa Parks statue. Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner, who attended the ceremony with President Obama and others, said "It's an honor for me to be here. This (Rosa Parks) statue speaks for itself. Today we speak for a nation committed to remembering, and mor ...

Today – February 11, 2013. News this morning of Pope Benedict’s resignation seems to have some correlations with many essays from the last 20 months as well as recent ”David Flynn” type geometric / time research discovered the night before. It was a research essay from a few months back where I discovered the possible “Temple / Center” of time for our Hemisphere in the United States .

The Washington Monument syndrome, also known as the Mount Rushmore Syndrome, or the firemen first principle, is a political tactic used in the United States by government agencies when faced with budget cuts. The tactic entails cutting the most visible or appreciated service provided by the government, from popular services such as national parks and libraries to valued public employees such as teachers and firefighters. Now does this sound like something President Obama would do, it does to me.

WE are home from Washington DC. WOW, enjoyed the travel, enjoyed the fellowship, loved walking through the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Viet Nam Wall, the Nurses statues, the World War II Memorial and the Washington Monument. Knee was aching, but just couldn't stop until had made the trek through all of these. Absolutely amazing. the Architecture of DC is fascinating. The Capitol and the White House were also viewed, but pretty much as expected. Spent Tuesday afternoon at the House of Representatives. Rayburn Building visited the offices of Tom Latham and Steve King, the Longworth building visited the office of Loebsack. Was disappointed at the Loebsack visit as he is against the Flag Desecration Amendment. that one I fight hard for. Also found in the SubBasement the Ice Cream and Starbucks was a welcome treat. Home today from Springtime and showers to snow and still cold. We could sure use the rain that fell there yesterday. Off to bed and tomorrow back to work.
President Obama's spokesman said Wednesday that the White House played no part in the decision to release hundreds of illegal immigrants from detention centers due to worries about budget cuts.
Just read about George Washington Carver...I like his eight cardinal virtues list! George Washington Carver was as concerned with his students' character development as he was with their intellectual development. He compiled a list of eight cardinal virtues for his students to strive toward: A monument to Carver at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis • Be clean both inside and out. • Neither look up to the rich nor down on the poor. • Lose, if need be, without squealing. • Win without bragging. • Always be considerate of women, children, and older people. • Be too brave to lie. • Be too generous to cheat. Take your share of the world and let others take theirs.

Sitting on a bench between the Capitol and the Washington monument is so much more peaceful at 9 pm than during the day
WBAL Radio 1090 AM - The owner of the Baltimore Blast tells WBAL Radio he has moved the team headquarters and practice facility out of the City. Ed Hale says his other businesses are also now located in Baltimore County.
After finishing The Lost Symbol there are 2 things I need to accomplish while in DC: go to the top of the Washington Monument & U.S Capitol.
I just got back from to the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Korean Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and Washington Monument.It has been 15 years since the last time I have gone to see these things and old Lincoln hasn't aged a bit.
Does anyone know how to find out the history of a house? Who lived or died there and such?
oh, Olympus has Fallen involves drones and a collapsing Washington Monument (which almost did fall down in the earthquake.) how fun.
The babies and I walked to the Washington Monument and the Capitol today. Longest I've walked since last summer. (oy!) Lucky to live here :)
Not forward to a 7 hour layover in D.C. but oh well i might as well go visit the washington monument and some sites.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - American leaders unveiled a statue of Rosa Parks on Wednesday, briefly setting aside political differences to honor the civil rights heroine, who became the first black woman to have a monument inside the U.S. Capitol.
What STATE is the Washington Monument in? This is for a grade.
Hey did u guys kno tht the monument of Rosa Parks was up 2day in the Washington DC Capitol? Yep she was put up 2day and she looks AMAZING...
SEQUESTRATION MAY LEAD TO INVOLUNTARY SEPARATIONS Lt. Gen. Howard Bromberg, the Army’s deputy chief of staff for personnel, said sequestration could lead to involuntary separations for 24,000 enlisted personnel and 7,000 officers. While the Pentagon’s military personnel budget accounts are exempt from sequestration, the automatic cuts could force the acceleration of already planned personnel reductions and increase the likelihood that the services have to make some of those cuts involuntary, the services’ personnel chiefs said Wednesday.
Krauthammer: Obama is overreaching with his "Washington Monument Syndrome on steroids" strategy (my phrase, not his) and it may backfire.
"They're still working on that thing? Jesus Christ, it didn't take them that long to build the Washington Monument!" I love my dad.
My sorority Delta Sigma Theta was the only African-American women's organization that participated in the Women's Suffrage March of 1913. 100 years later - on Sunday March 3, 2013, the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority will recreate this Women's Suffrage March!! ALL WOMEN are invited to participate in this event. If so, meet us at the Capitol at 9 am and we will march down Pennslyvania Ave to the Washington Monument. The march will be about 3.1 miles. Let me know if you are in the DC area or coming to the area and would like to walk together!!!
Traveling down 14th street in DC what a beautify view of the capital building and the Washington monument.
Great article on CNN - Americans sick of budget soap opera (excerpts) One of the foremost duties of Congress is to pass a budget: It has failed for four straight years. Republicans, especially in the House, have continually refused to meet the White House halfway. Meanwhile, a president who promised to be a solution has become part of the problem. Ever since his re-election, Barack Obama has seemed more intent on campaigning than governing. It is insane that a series of cuts that represent only 2.5% of all federal spending and 5% of the budgets of most federal agencies will be allowed -- according to the administration -- to create havoc with airplane flights, bring grinding slowdowns to meat inspections, force an aircraft carrier to stay in port ... the litany goes on. this sounds suspiciously like the "Washington Monument syndrome": the tendency of federal bureaucrats faced with budget cuts to shut down the most visible services first, causing screams and forcing the cuts to be rescinded. Is there anywa ...
So... the guy who came up with the idea for the sequester is now the Secretary of the Treasury. And the president, who pushed the idea back in 2011, is now firmly against it... and blaming it on Republicans. Sweet!
They will display a ice statue of Obama at the Old Train Station exactly 666 meters from The Temple Mount ! h...
Alright friends..I'm going to Washington, DC to visit my girl Rachel Sweenie!! What do I need to do/see/eat there?!!
Releasing illegals from jail is the ultimate Washington Monument ploy. Typical of Dimmycrats.
Barak Hussein removed Robert E. Lee's statue in a building in D.C. and replaced it with one of Rosa Parks. It would make a stronger statement for Parks to stand next to Lee. Lee was against slavery, and did not care who knew it. He chose to lead the Confederate Army because Virginia was his beloved state. For Barak Hussein, what is next? Get rid of the Washington Monument? Washington was a slave owner. The Jefferson Memorial? Jefferson was a slave owner. The Lincoln Memorial? Lincoln's wife owned slaves? Does anyone see a problem here?
Cut conference spending?!? NO! lets close the Washington Monument and crash airplanes"
I heard a report (not sure if it is true) that congress is exempt for the cuts that will happen Friday.if this is true makes us boiling mad
This is for Betsy. I just learned why the Washington Monument is white at the bottom and darker on top. The bottom was completed by slaves and the top was completed by paid workers after the Civil War. I thought that was very interesting.
Im touching the reflecting pool leading to the Washington Monument 😉☺💧
It is known as the Washington Monument strategy. Turf-protecting government executives and bureaucrats go out of their way to make spending cuts as painful as possible for as many people as possible. By applying any cuts to the very things the public benefits from most, bureaucratic infighters belie...
Cool view from my hotel room. Right across from the Pentagon and the Washington monument. Can't believe it's been 9 years since I've been back here.
THE HIDDEN EMPIRE Jubilee 2012 The Hidden Empire 1. City States.Did the world wars, revolutions and big events of human history happen naturally or coincidentally, or were they calculated and pre-planned? If they were pre-planned, who planned them? The answer to this question can be found within the boundaries of three of the worlds most powerful cities. Those three cities belong to no nation and pay no taxes. They are Washington's District of Columbia, which is not part of the city of Washington or the United States. The inner city of London, which is not part of London or England, and Vatican city, which is not part of Rome or Italy. These cities, called City States, have their own independent flag, their own separate laws and their own separate identity. 2. Vatican City Gracing the walls of St Peter's Basilica is the Vatican-approved image of God. An angry bearded man in the sky, painted by Michael Angelo. Cruel and violent images of God's tortured Son, suffering, bleeding and dying with thorns gouged ...
I can tell I'm losing weight. The pants I'm wearing right now I used to be able to wear without a belt. Now i have to keep pulling them up. :)
On the National Mall West of the Washington Monument (Tehken). Rest one of America's most famous memorials "Lincoln sitting" which is identical to that of "Rameses II" seated in his memorial at Abu Simbel. Behind the "Lincoln Memorial" on the West bank of the Potomac River is America's most famous necropolis- Arlington Cemetery. Behind Rameses II is the "Valley of Kings" on the West bank of the NILE. Its the final resting place of fallen statesmen,judges,citizens and soldiers (known&Unknown). Both places are spirtually connected for honoring the dead. (Black History Month)
Awesome. Sitting in DC, between Washington Monument and Capitol building, having wifi. Gotta love America.
It's astounding to me that the South perpetuates Civil War myth and glorifies its contribution to oppression and racism to this day. Be it monuments to racists and white supremacists in government buildings or its obduracy in removing the confederate flag from places of prominence at state houses and other government offices-meant to be beacons of freedom and democracy, not reminders of racism and cruelty. I had no idea the governments of southern states still promote these ideals of bigotry and segregation so publicly. This stuff flies in the face of everything this country stands for. Here's a troubling story from South Carolina: In 2001 an "African American History Monument" was put up at the State House. A granite imprint of a packed slave ship surrounded by different panels depicting the "African American Experience" in SC. However, the commission assigned to oversee the design was told it could not "represent any actual human being who actually lived." Unlike every other monument at the state house- ...
So wait, is the admin actually going to close the Washington Monument "because" of the sequester. Because that would be hilarious.
Everyone involved in this Washington Monument-Sequester charade should resign.
Rosa Parks gets a statue in Washington DC?!!! She never saved nobody's life. Yet she is some kind of hero. While we have men and women fighting all over the world to save our lives and keep US out of danger. Wow this world is a freaking joke. Can't believe that
onto an American flag which then fell onto an actual bald eagle which was skewered by the Washington monument and
We might have to get earthquake insurance. Just had a magnitude 2.5 hit about 5 miles from the base.
Kicking up quote dust of the day: I don't feel the necessity to live in a world of peace and harmony... Where we all hold hands and "get along" in ambivalent ignorance. Acceptance should not be mistaken for Tolerance... Our differences are what make us who we are...
Saw a sign for the Washington monument, 10 miles out of the way. A worthy detour.
Phil Gramm: Obama and the Sequester Scare Governing isn't about blaming someone else. It is about choosing. President Obama's message could not be clearer: Life as we know it in America will change dramatically on March 1, when automatic cuts are imposed to achieve $85 billion in government-spending reductions. Furloughed government employees, flight delays and criminals set free are among the dire consequences the president has predicted. If the Washington Monument weren't already closed for repairs, no doubt it too would be shut down. Scare tactics such as these are similar to the ones that were made when I co-authored the first sequester legislation in 1985, the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act. The 1986 sequester was triggered anyway, but the predicted disaster never came. The nation survived then. It will now. The president's response to the sequester demonstrates how out of touch he is with the real world of working families. Even after the sequester, the feder ...
This has to be my favorite airport - Reagan! All of the amazing sites outside my window (as I sit on the plane) - Washington Monument, the Capitol, Jefferson Memorial, etc.! So glad to be heading home but I can't wait to come back to DC! It is an amazing city!

Tonight, if wanted to go on a bender with Gwen Ifill and buy a couple spear guns and try to scale the Washington Monument, i'm gonna do it.
Hmmm before I forget happy 10th anniversary to Ireland's spire. Some say it's like the Eiffel Tower or the Washington monument in DC but to
Did you know that Andy Warhol did a sketch of the Washington Monument?
And there is the Washington monument. Pretty cool
To anyone who's been through past government shutdowns, this sounds suspiciously like "Washington Monument syndrome."
I am the Catholic Church. Don't you dare get it twisted.
President Obama has ordered the releaes of 500 criminals to make his point that we can't afford to make budget cuts with the sequester (which he originally proposed). Is it right to put people in danger for his political gain? Yikes!
If this sequester goes through its very likely that what we call "Washington Monument syndrome" will ensue..read about it. Its your country
Was worshipped like a rock star at the Washington Monument.
I read Woodward to mean that the carrier non-deployment is a Washington Monument strategy. That would be a fair critique, no?
That's because "white" people were clearly too lazy to build it THEMSELVES. That's makes it the *** House in my view since they actually BUILT it.
I think i'm gonna need to book weeks off for this road trip next year. I am currently learning about our first main stop - Philly. So much to see, the Independence visitor center, town hall, Bestsy Ross home, the steps Rocky ran up, Eastern State Penitentiary- a haunted old prison! The Vietnam memorial, the zoo and that's not all!! I am tired already lol
What are the chances someone in New York City found my wallet and did the right thing . Thank God for Good Samaritans! God Bless whoever you are!
Obama leases Washington Monument to muslims to use as a minaret.
