Park Service Ranger: “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
After three days of Vets and Honor Flight members storming the Barry-Cades erected to keep Americans out of their open-air memorials – Obama escalates the conflict by having the Park Service wire the barricades together and thus prevent veterans and their families from visiting the open air WWII memorial.
…The veterans then moved the (Vietnam Memorial) barricade and walked down to the wall to pay their respects. But a flood of tourists followed even though the memorial is closed to the general public.U.S. Park Police arrive to the scene, asked everyone to leave and put the barricade back into place.
The petulant man-child wannabe emperor has his regime order the shut down and barricading of open air monuments and parks, coming up with funds and money from somewhere to pay government employees to shutter, barricade and stand guard over areas that are not usually guarded or barricaded. It’s an infuriating issue that Obama is willing to escalate and pour salt into the already-festering anger that is boiling out in the nation.
Barriers are still at the memorial, and they’ve been reinforced. This morning, I walked by the memorial and noticed that wires had been used to tie the fences together.
Who is ordering the National Park Service to go to such great lengths to shut down the open-air World War II memorial that is usually unguarded? On Tuesday, Carol Johnson of the National Park Service told me that the White House’s Office of Management and Budget “sends everything down to all other departments. We are part of the Interior. Interior gives us our instructions.”
“This administration thinks this is a political game,” Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, said to Fox News Wednesday. “This is outrageous. This is a sidewalk. Leave it open! I’m wondering what are they going to do next — hang a drapery over Mt. Rushmore? I mean, this is ridiculous!”
It seems ridiculous to most bewildered Americans, but this is the way Marxist Revolutionaries begin imposing an iron fist. This is how it begins and escalates into a forced violent confrontation. But then this is what Marxists NEED in order to implement their next phase of revolution.
Obama is having a lot of fun using the government shutdown to squeeze the public in imaginative ways.
The point of the shutdown game is to see who can squeeze hardest, make the most pious speech and listen for the applause. It’s a variation on the grade-school ritual of “you show me yours, and I’ll show you mine.”…He has closed Washington down as tight as he dares, emphasizing the trivial and the petty in making life as inconvenient as he can for the greatest number. It’s all in a noble cause, of course. Access to most of the memorials is limited, and often in curious ways. The Lincoln Memorial is easy to reach, with the streets around it remaining open….The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and they’re only here to help.
The Obama regime has deployed an army of feds to barricade public AND private parks, memorials and statues in the name of a government shutdown. This move is calculated with the intent to project pain upon the American people, with the hope they will rebuke Republicans and force capitulation to Obama’s agenda.
The regime lies when they say they cannot avoid barricading sidewalks that pass memorials. This is obvious in that it actually costs money to create the barricades, whereas it costs nothing to leave them out of the way. War Memorials have NEVER been closed off during a shutdown.
Now that vets and their families have breached Obama’s barrycades in the first few days – Obama’s regime is taking it up a notch by wiring the gates and barriers shut to make pushing them out of the way more difficult.
That these vets had to breach barbed wire and machine gun nests of the Nazi’s in Europe and the Imperial Japanese some 70 years ago, only to have to be faced with their own government wiring their memorial closed is beyond sickening.
But it is a calculated escalation. One that the regime is plotting and laying a trap and bait for.
The 2 Million Bikers movement has begun “Free The memorial” ride to DC for Saturday the 5th. Since Obama apparently wants a confrontation, it appears the Biker movement is happy to oblige.
In this atmosphere, I fear we will quickly move from wire cutters to firearms. But that is EXACTLY what the Obama regime and the MarxoFascists want. They want a war. And they are already stockpiled with BILLIONS of hollow point ammunition, tanks, APCs and MRAPs staged throughout the country to war on the American people.
There is no other explanation for either these actions and the arming and militarization of domestic police, SWAT and other agents of the government.
