Feds Okay Illegal Immigration Rally On “Closed” National Mall But Will Close 22 Private Campgrounds In NH

Immigration-Rally

Obama’s next campaign rally for”Immigration Reform” will take place tomorrow at the “closed” National mall, the open air memorials remain closed.

This week we have seen Obama’s petulance and hypocrisy on parade.  The government shutdown that isn’t showcased government web sites such as noaa.gov and Amber Alerts taken offline – but Michelle Obama’s “Let’s move” site was left untouched.  Blowback from that hypocrisy forced the government to put the site back online this morning.

Residents were evicted from their homes at Lake Mead because they sat on federal land, but Obama sits in the White House on federal land dining on Wagyu beef that WE THE PEOPLE paid for.

And, while Obama is barrycading open air monuments and closing parks, forests and oceans – the ultimate hypocrisy comes that the Feds are allowing an immigration NOW rally on the national mall tomorrow.

Park Service OKs immigration reform rally on ‘closed’ National Mall

A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.

Organizers for the “Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform” were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday.

A few scattered barriers around the park have signs informing visitors that the area is closed as a result of the government shutdown.

Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the rally, confirmed for the Washington Examiner that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group’s rights granted by the First Amendment.

The event is hosted by several immigration activist groups, together with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the AFL-CIO.

While that is going on, the Park Service is forcibly closing 22 private campgrounds in New Hampshire that do not use federal funding.  Like a retarded Prince John proclaiming the rights of the royal forests are off limits to common-folk, this action treats Americans like subjects instead of sovereign citizens.

Government to Shut Down 22 Privately Operated Campsites in N.H.

As Columbus Day weekend approaches and New England fall foliage reaches its peak, the U.S. Forest Service has decreed that 22 privately run campgrounds in New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest will have to close because of the government shutdown.

According to the Union Leader, while the campsites are situated on federally owned land, they are entirely run by a private company, which has a contract to operate the sites and which pays the federal government a cut of the fees it collects. That means the closure will not only prevent thousands of campers from using the facilities, it will actually cost the federal government money it would have collected if it had simply done nothing.

Kent Tower, the president of the company that runs the campsites, told the Union Leader that the federal government does not contribute anything to running or staffing the sites. “We pay all the maintenance, all the upkeep, all the help, all the insurance,” he said. “All the trucks, all the equipment is ours. They have nothing to do with it.”

During past government shutdowns, even while other national parks were closed, these sites stayed open. Marily Reese, the executive director of the National Forest Recreation Association, was told that this time around, the Obama administration decided to close all federal land “because of consistency.” Members of her association, who operate similar facilities on federal land across the country, have been receiving calls from administration officials warning them that they have 48 hours to close down. Reese has been advising them to remain open until they are notified in writing, since the instructions amount to a legal change in their contracts.

According to Tower, the Forest Service is acting reluctantly. “Someone above the Forest Service told them to do it,” he told the Union Leader. “Basically, it’s a power move.”

CAPITOL HILL POLICE BLOCK TEA PARTY ACTIVISTS FROM IMMIGRATION RALLY

Gadsden-TEA Party

The right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances is apparently a right only allowed if you are a Leftist.

Breaking on Breitbart, TEA Party protesters were being blocked by Capitol Hill Police from attending Immigration rally on the other side of the Capitol.  Apparently, protesting tyranny is a right we little people no longer possess unless it’s ‘granted’ by the State.  And then, they have the right to tell us how, where and when we can “protest”.

CAPITOL HILL POLICE BLOCK TEA PARTY ACTIVISTS FROM IMMIGRATION RALLY

Capitol Hill police are trying to block activists attending Wednesday’s “Audit the IRS” rally from also attending a nearly day-long press conference on immigration, hosted by Reps. Steve King and Louie Gohmert. The IRS rally is on the west side of the Capitol, while the immigration event is on the east side. Organizers for the IRS event were told by Hill police that “your people” can only assemble on the west side. Organizers were told to remove the activists from the immigration event.

…”The Capitol police are violating our rights to assembly and association,” Mooneyhan told Breitbart News. “How does our permit limit the rights of individuals to attend public events. It’s intimidation.”

Mooneyhan added, “How do they even know these are ‘our people?’ Did they look them up through PRISM?” PRISM is the controversial NSA program that reportedly tracks internet and email communication.

Napalitano Says She and Obama Can Choose Which Laws To Enforce & Which Laws To Ignore

Napalitano-Void-Constitution

Napolitano declares political officials at the top of this administration have the authority to decide which laws to enforce, and which ones to ignore.

Admitting the violation of her oath of office, will any of these traitors in the Obama regime ever be held to account?  If not – we officially have a dictatorship that America has willfully accepted to rule us all.

BIG SIS: OBAMA ADMIN CAN PICK WHICH LAWS TO ENFORCE

During her testimony on the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared that she, President Barack Obama and other political officials at the top of this administration have the authority to decide which laws to enforce, and which ones to ignore.

Napolitano made the declaration in an exchange with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) when he was questioning her on how Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have alleged that political officials in the Obama administration, including her, have blocked them from enforcing the law.

Sessions noted that ICE agents’ union president Chris Crane had testified on Monday “that agents are prohibited from enforcing the law and, indeed, the ICE officers have filed a lawsuit [to that effect].”

“I started out as a federal prosecutor in the Department of Justice in 1975,” Sessions said. “I have never heard of a situation in which a group of law officers sued their supervisor and you for blocking them from following the law. They weren’t complaining about pay, benefits, working conditions. They were saying their very oath they took, to enforce the law, is being blocked by rules and regulations and policies established from on high and that this is undermining their ability to do what they’re sworn to do.”

In her response to those remarks from Sessions, Napolitano said she believes she and other political officials have the authority to tell law enforcement agents which laws to enforce and which ones to ignore.

“There are tensions with union leadership, unfortunately, but here’s what I expect as a former federal prosecutor and attorney general, and that is that law enforcement agents will enforce the law in accord with the guidance they’re given from their superiors,” Napolitano said. “That’s what we ask of ICE, that’s what we ask of Border Patrol, that’s what we ask throughout the Department and I believe that would be consistent with all law enforcement. Agents don’t set the enforcement priorities. Those are set by their superiors and they are asked then to obey that guidance in accord with the law.”

Sessions was not pleased with Napolitano’s response, so he followed up by asking: ““Well, what Mr. Crane testified to was that there are law provisions that say an agent shall do this, that and the other, and that the policies set by their political supervisors refuse to allow them to do what the law plainly requires. You are not entitled to set policies, are you, that violate the mandates of congressional law?”

Napolitano answered that question by saying she “disagree[s] with almost everything” Sessions has said, “but we’ll just have to respectfully disagree with each other.”

“But, I think it does point to why this bill needs to be passed, because what we want our officers doing is focusing on narco-traffickers and human smugglers and money launderers and others who misuse our border and our immigration system,” Napolitano said. “By having a process by which those in the country illegally can pay a fine, pay fees, register so we know who they are, by dealing with the employer demand for illegal labor, by opening up the visa system, that will have the effect, basically, of confirming the focus of resources where they need to be.”

Despite Napolitano’s and the administration’s belief that they can tell law enforcement agents which laws to enforce and which ones to ignore, the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill cedes even more authority away from Congress and gives it to the administration.
