Vets Storm Memorial After Obama Orders It Closed – Obama Orders Memorials Re-Barricaded, Will Arrest ‘Violators’

Shut down memorial

WWII Veterans will not take Obama-imposed blockade lying down on a memorial paid for almost entirely by PRIVATE donations.  Park Service says they are ordered to arrest any further intrusions past barricades.

They were the Greatest Generation, now in their late 80’s and 90’s – going on Honor Flights to see the memorial erected in their honor by almost entirely private donations for what they achieved.  Their memorial is an open-air tribute requiring no staff, same as the Lincoln Memorial.  But His Heinous – Emperor Obama, the Petulant Man-Child, tossed his tantrum over the government shut-down – and ON HIS ORDERS, BARRICADED AND SHUT DOWN THOSE MEMORIALS.  Stephen Hayes reports via twitchy:

“At the WWII Memorial, Carol Johnson w/the Park Service says they were told to close the site by White House’s Office of Management & Budget.”

That means that the order to barricade and close the open-air memorials came from either Obama himself or his staff (Valerie Jarrett anyone?)

Not even during the Clinton-era shutdown were the open air memorials barricaded and shut down.

However, Honor Flight veterans who stormed the beaches at Normandy and slugged it out with the Imperial Japanese in the Pacific were not going to allow Fuhrer-Emperor Obama to stand in their way. They stormed past the barricades and went into the memorial erected in their honor, Obama’s petulance be damned.

World War II veterans storm DC memorial, shutdown be damned

Hilarity ensued in Washington on Tuesday when busloads of World War II veterans on an Honor Flight to visit the World War II Memorial were halted at BARRY-CADES closing it off due to the shutdown.

Having traveled so far to be turned back because of Obama’s petulance, the veterans—many of them in wheelchairs—stormed right past the gates, “pushing them over” to get inside the memorial before a Parks Department employee (still on the job somehow) relented and removed them, allowing everyone inside rather than suffer very bad ‘optics’.

It is amazing that while there is a so-called government shut-down – that the Federal Government has money to pay for personnel, file, barricades, fencing and security to blockade open-air memorials in order to keep the American people OUT of their own memorials and to stand guard when under normal conditions, they are not present.

EssentialEmployeesSince Tuesday’s ‘breach’ of Obama’s ordered barricade of the nation’s memorials – Obama has ordered a redoubling of barricades and more security to keep Americans out – with orders to arrest anyone breaching those barricades.  Welcome to Obama’s Amerika.

The Obama administration is adding more barricades at the World War Two Memorial in Washington, D.C. this morning, according to reporters on the scene.

The reinforcements are being put in place apparently to prevent a repeat of yesterday when WWII veterans aided by several Republican Congressmen pushed aside barricades to visit their memorial.

Buzzfeed got no response from the White House last night when queried about the administration closing the memorial to veterans.

A report last night claimed that the Park Service would arrest veterans who attempt to visit the WWII Memorial.

By Wednesday morning, there is apparently enough money and manpower to erect a fortress of gates and wire around the open-air memorials and to station police to stand guard 24/7.

Guarding Lincoln

 

Today, there is more security and more guards at the Lincoln Memorial than at our Annex in Benghazi in 2012 when Al Qaeda attacked and killed 4 Americans including our ambassador.

The excuse the park Service offers is feeble, maintaining is that the government requires people on duty know CPR.  A bogus excuse. The Memorial is open-air and open to the public 24 hours a day, even though previously staffed only part of the day.  Most veterans are aided by family and other staff attending to medical needs.

His Heinous Obama is angry at the violation of his Barry-Cades and is sending in reinforcements to ensure that the memorials remained off-limits to Americans.  In reply, Americans and Veterans are showing up in greater numbers to the memorial today.  Another Honor Flight of vets is scheduled for next Wednesday, and a showdown between an army of Fed employees and veterans who kicked Hitler and Tojo’s asses may be in store.  The vets and their supports vow to up the ante of their protest:

Military veterans are declaring war on the government shutdown.

After a group of veterans broke down the barricades at the national World War II Memorial Tuesday afternoon, organizers of one Hero Flight Network group told BuzzFeed it wasn’t the last Washington would hear from them. Veterans are plotting another protest at the same place Wednesday, and expressed interest in staging similar events at sites across the nation’s capital, including the Lincoln Memorial — an act of civil disobedience that would likely pour fuel on the already highly flammable politics of the government shutdown.

“We have people here that are 80 and 90 years old and they closed down all the bathrooms?” said Tony Nussbaum, a 25-year veteran of the Air Force from Iowa and a leader of the state’s Hero Flight group. “I’m about to just start pissing on the trees.”

…On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported that a Mississippi Republican representative attempted to get a special pass for the Hero Flight veterans from the Department of the Interior but was denied. A White House official reportedly told organizers, “It’s a government shutdown, what do you expect?” when asked about opening the memorial to the veterans. The White House did not respond to BuzzFeed’s request for comment Tuesday.

Reports exist that orders have come down to arrest anyone *tresspassing* the Barry-Cades.

Park ranger will not answer questions about arresting vets, says “that is an enforcement issue.”

Government Shut Down Blame Game

ShutDown

A last ditch effort by the GOP to keep government running but suspending ObamaCare subsidies for Congress and their staff is rejected by the Democrat MarxoFascists, prompting the Federal shut down.  

There is this truth: the cabal running Washington D.C. will rather delight in everything burning down than to surrender their taxpayer-funded perks.  For them, some animals are more equal than others.

The GOP leadership’s late offer to the Senate and Obama was a bill that funds the government through Dec. 15, but included a measure to delay the health care law’s individual mandate while getting rid of federal subsidies for the health insurance of members of Congress and their staff — an idea pushed by Louisiana Sen. David Vitter.  But Harry Reid and the Ruling Class in the Senate rejected the offer, preferring the political football they think will be easily played over the heads of their low-information welfare voting constituency.

Breitbart also has the story:

SENATE SHUT DOWN GOVERNMENT TO SAVE ITS OBAMACARE SUBSIDIES

SNIP

…In the final hours before the midnight deadline, the House ended with a simple proposal. It would agree to fund the government, if the Senate agreed to scrap the special subsidies lawmakers and staff receive to purchase health insurance. The final House proposal only effected people on Capitol Hill. Harry Reid said, effectively, we’ll shut down the government to keep our subsidies.

 The Senate, however, rejected both provisions. Had it opted to eliminate its own special subsidies, the government would be open today. Preserving its own platinum health insurance coverage drove the Senate to close the government. But the Praetorian Media will never report this truth.  Instead they will parrot Obama’s blame game on ‘extremist Republicans’ ‘holding the country hostage’.

Every Senate Democrat Voted In Favor Of Exempting Themselves From ObamaCare

One of the most profoundly unfair provisions of Obamacare is that members of Congress and their staffers were unilaterally and illegally granted a special exemption from the law they themselves passed. Unlike many Americans, many of whom have been forcibly kicked off their current health care plans, the governing class and their staffers as of now will keep their insurance providers and receive an enormous taxpayer subsidy (depending on which plan they choose) to off-set rising health care costs. Sound fair? I didn’t think so. As it happened, many congressional staffers threatened to resign if they were forced to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges and comply with the mandate — even though many of them helped draft (and ultimately pass) the legislation.

….Democrats voted in lock-step with their party to buck the House of Representative’s duly passed spending bill on several occasions. Not only did they reject a continuing resolution that would end this unjust and unfair Obamacare waiver — a de facto endorsement of special privileges and protections for members of Congress — they voted against the provision to delay the law’s controversial mandate requirement to purchase health insurance.

That said, what is happening IS NOT a government shut down.  It is a political ploy to add maximum pain upon the American people and inflict misery and punishment for the purpose of attempting to turn popular opinion against Conservatives.   Obama’s existing scheme of Sequester and this shut down is just another tool in the hand of the MarxoFascists to hurt the American people.

If we are going to have a REAL government shut-down – then We The People should send Congress, the Courts and Obama HOME WITHOUT PAY – WITHOUT PERKS – WITHOUT PENSION.  Let THEM apply for unemployment like the little people they inflict their misery upon.  While we are at it, kill the Alphabets – shut down the IRS, the NSA, DHS and the EPA.  Worthless money-sucking agents of tyranny that need to be abolished anyway.
