Unconscionable: President Shutdown Scuttles Amber Alert Website; ‘Let’s Move’ Still Up and Running

The mind boggles. Just when you think Obama can’t sink any lower, he keeps digging.

Instead of showing critical missing children bulletins, the federal Amber Alert website on Sunday displayed a sparse, white screen with a simple message: It’s a victim of the government shutdown.

“Due to the lapse in federal funding, this Office of Justice Programs (OJP) website is unavailable,” the message reads, just below a U.S. Department of Justice seal.

The website normally displays urgent alerts from across the nation about the most at-risk missing children, helping to connect citizens and law enforcement across all participating jurisdictions.

So a missing child just isn’t a priority, but Michelle Obama is. At that site they’re still pimping School Salad Bar Day! Awesome. Let’s hope kidnapped children can at least get themselves a salad.
