Vets & Sarah Palin Storm D.C. Memorials – Riot Police Show Up To Intimidate

Palin WWII Memorial

Barrycades removed and returned to White House as thousands gather to protest tyranny by Obama’s shutdown.  Mainstream media is silent and refuses to even report.

The question of whether or not law enforcement will adhere to their oaths and the American people or follow orders from a dictator in the White House is being answered with all the ridiculous affronts to liberty and punishment they are willing to impose on citizens:

Gestapo Tactics’ used on American Seniors

Feds use guns to hold tourists hostage at Yellowstone

Police remove Vietnam vets from Memorial Wall

Obama Orders barricading of open air war memorials

Hired Goons at Independence Hall:

Well America has had enough of His Heinous, Barack Hussein Obama’s petulant man-child punishment of those Americans he hates.  His ridiculous use of funds and force to close open air monuments to veterans has reached the level that thousands decided to descend on Washington this weekend to force those monuments open.

But you will not read or see about much of it unless it is presented with a Confederate flag and painted in a negative light by Obama’s media goons.  It requires the use of alternative media and the internet to get the truth out.  Today Angry Americans attempted yet again to PEACEABLY assemble at THEIR memorials.

Vets Salute

Barackcades

Americans decided enough was enough – and they pushed passed the Barry-cades, with vets collecting the gates – and moving them.  Even this wounded war vet decided to do his part:

Sarah Palin came with Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz to speak to the crowd:

The protest then moved on from the WWII memorial to the Lincoln memorial with Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Conservatives.

Many protesters began returning the gates and barricades to the One who sent them to be put up.  One sign on a pile read: “Return to sender”.

But the police and the agents for the regime showed up in force to intimidate the protesters.

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.

Governemnt shutdown THUGS

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.

NH Campsite

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.”

Obama Ups Ante – Wires Barry-Cades Together To Prevent Access To WWII Memorial

Wiredshut Barry-Cades

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.

In addition, Obama has had the Park Service close the Vietnam Veterans memorial and ordered those who breached the barricades this afternoon to leave and they reinforced those barricades as well.

…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.

WWII Memorial Barricade Wired Shut And Reinforced

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.

Guarding Lincoln

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.

MRAP

There is no other explanation for either these actions and the arming and militarization of domestic police, SWAT and other agents of the government.

The Government Shut Down That Isn’t

king & queen Obama

The Ruling Class In D.C. is still living high off the hog amidst the shut down, while they impose maximum pain on the American People.

• Open Air Memorials  – SHUT DOWN

• WWII Cemetery in Normandy France – SHUT DOWN

Grocery Stores on military Bases – SHUT DOWN

• Government Web Sites – TAKEN OFFLINE

• Golf Courses on Military Bases and Federal Parks – OPEN SO OBAMA CAN PLAY GOLF

This is not a Federal Government shut-down.  It’s punishment, inflicted on the people to exact a political capitulation to Obama’s agenda and his petulant temper tantrum to the opposition of his nefarious healthcare law and the effort to defund it.

Obama finds money to barricade and close America’s open-air memorials and monuments and orders vital services like the National Weather Service to actually take their web-sites offline.  But he still has time to dine on Wagyu beef and jet-set around the world while paying stormtroopers to erect Barry-Cades and post guards to public parks and memorials.

NOAA Closed

The saving grace is that this *shut down* slows the imposition of more Alphabet tyranny most of us had no clue was coming – such as the EPA’s $1 per gallon federal gas tax that was set to go into effect.  The EPA’s SWAT team will not get any overtime. And the poor Obama’s will have to make do with Tweeting themselves instead of having the 16 full time staffers on hand Michelle Obama uses to handle her Twitter account.

Daniel Greenfield at his Sultan Knish blog succinctly points out the absurdity of this so-called shut down, and the massive disconnect between the Ruling Class in Washington and the rest of America that they are inflicting pain upon.

The Sun Sets on Washington D.C.

There was a time when even the highest government officials lived simpler lives.

President George Washington made do with Tobias Lear, who not only served as his secretary, but also doubled as a diplomat and even measured his body for burial. President Thomas Jefferson made do with Meriwether Lewis as his personal secretary and Lewis also doubled as Jefferson’s explorer in the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Washington worked on an expense account instead of a salary. He began his presidency working out of a rented three story house that was later demolished as a slum clearance project to make way for the Brooklyn Bridge on a spot only a few minutes away from what is now Ground Zero.

Washington once said that government is “a troublesome servant and a fearful master.” Government has long ceased being a troublesome servant and has become our fearful master instead. Today the servants of the people have more servants of their own than many kings and queens.

The government shutdown has forced Obama to make do with only a quarter of his 1,701 person staff. That would leave 436 “vital” employees. The 90 people who look after his living quarters would be slashed to 15 to “provide minimum maintenance and support”.

Buckingham Palace, which is twelve times the size of the White House and has its own clockmaker, only has an 800 person staff. King Harald V of Norway and his court make do with 152 staffers. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden gets by with 203.

On Twitter, Michelle Obama announced that she is unable to Tweet on her own without the aid of all of her sixteen assistants; many of whom take home six figure salaries. There are more directors, associate directors and deputy associate directors on Michelle Obama’s staff than there were in George Washington’s entire administration.

Presidents have fought wars and made peace, explored and annexed vast territories and built a nation out of a handful of colonies with fewer senior staffers than are needed to handle Michelle Obama’s Twitter account.

In 2009, Oprah’s Harpo Productions released a video of celebrities pledging “to be a servant to our president.” The idea that presidents were to be the servants of the people rather than their masters had become outmoded.

There is a word for men who surround themselves with czars, who expand their staffs, who fly their dogs out on separate planes, who amuse themselves at the expense of the people at lavish parties, concerts and vacations. And it isn’t public servant.

The government shutdown with its furloughing of 800,000 Federal workers isn’t the apocalypse that the political establishment claims it is. The apocalypse is the very existence of 800,000 Federal workers who can be sent home without any apocalypse until some deal is hammered out and they return to their jobs within the bowels of a massive bureaucracy that extends its reach and influence into every household.

Servants don’t tell masters what to do. And that is the real function of much of the Federal workforce. The theatrics over national park closings and empty museums are window dressing meant to leave the false impression that the function of Federal workers is to open velvet ropes and point out the place where Dolly Madison once slept.

And that’s a dangerous lie.

The truth comes out in the more tangible concerns over permits. In a country where a permit is required to do nearly anything, the Federal government more closely resembles a permit processing system than anything else. The shutdown hurts businesses, not because they need the massive bureaucracy, but because it slows down the already onerous bureaucracy that makes it so hard to do business.

The Federal government employs nearly 3 million civilian workers. One for every 100 Americans. The only time we had more civilian workers than that was during the last days of World War II.

In 1944, the Department of Defense had 2.2 million civilian employees and civilian agencies like Justice, Treasury and Education had 683,000. By 2011, the situation was reversed. Despite fighting several wars, there were now 773,000 civilians in the Department of Defense and 1.3 million in the civilian agencies; a legacy of all our new lost social wars on poverty, marriage, literacy, morality and poor self-esteem.

In 1970, the Department of Defense drew the lion’s share of Federal spending. By 2010, it wasn’t even drawing 20% while the Department of Health and Human Service was accounting for nearly 25%. The cause of our current war, Obamacare, is the natural growth of that shift from fighting external enemies to fighting social problems while trying to manage the cost of the welfare state.

That same shrinkage turned the United Kingdom into a ghost of what it had once been. It is now doing it works to usher in a Post-American order.

In 1940, the Code of Federal Regulations was a mere 5,307 pages. Still more than any sane person could read through and a legacy of the New Deal. But it was only a foreshadowing of what was to come. By 2010, it was up to 81,405 pages.

We were now firmly in the land of thousand page omnibus bills that had to be passed to be fully known. We were living under a government whose top officials no longer knew what they were doing. They had passed on that responsibility to the vast bureaucracy of Federal employees who had become the true masters of the system.

There were still elections, but those 3 million Federal employees had come to matter more than the 100 senators and 435 representatives.

The government shutdown is a rebellion by the latter against the former. It is as if the Queen of England had attempted to displace the Prime Minister, as may be her legal right but is no longer considered her appropriate function. The monarchy had been replaced by a more republican form of government in all but form.

The United States government was similarly replaced by another form of government; an unelected bureaucracy whose officials, judges and permit-givers wield real power while the congressmen carry on with the forms of power, parading around and arguing over bills that they haven’t read. It’s every bit as much empty ceremony as the Queen of England’s clockmaker or the Yeomen Warders.

That is why the government shutdown and debates over the Debt Ceiling has outraged so much of the political elite. It’s as if the Queen had walked into No. 10 Downing Street accompanied by her favorite corgis, told Prime Minister Cameron to leave and attempted to actually govern the United Kingdom. It’s an offense against the forms of modernity which disposed of the monarchy and democracy replacing them with an ever-expanding bureaucracy, a mob of unelected officials and a web of regulations.

The media skulks around Washington D.C. filling pages with mournful prose more appropriate to Stalingrad or Homs than to Oakland-on-the-Potomac with a Versailles of government buildings. We learn that the barbershop in the Russell Senate Office Building is closed, the shoeshine stand stands empty and five of the six eateries are shuttered. Even the Senate gift shop has been shut down.

The underground subway system between the capitol buildings is running behind schedule and Senate aides have been ordered to turn off their government BlackBerry phones.

It’s all very sad for those people who have built their lives around working for the government, but it’s also a breath of reality entering a stale room whose occupants are completely out of touch with the economic situation in the rest of the country.

Government employees have a 4.2% unemployment rate compared to 8.6% for private sector workers and a union membership rate of 35.9% compared to 6.6% for private sector workers. The very people who made ObamaCare and will oversee ObamaCare have been immunized against its toxic effects.

There are indeed two Americas. There is the America of the worker and the America of his master; the public servant. There is the America of the small businessman and the America of the crony capitalist. There is the unreal America of the Obamas and their retinue of assistants, czars and chefs and the real America where fathers hunt through the job ads wondering how they will feed their families next week.

The government shutdown is bringing the real America into the unreal America. The parties are still going on and most Federal workers are staying on the job. Overtime is still being paid to government workers and the only thing that will really happen is that some of the paychecks will be a bit late.

It’s not the reality that most of the country is living with, but finally the Government Class is feeling a touch of the pain of the Working Class; that sense of helplessness and insecurity that has been alien to the masters living at the expense of the servants.

The sun has set over Versailles. And the sun isn’t supposed to set.

A million businesses may close. A million Americans may lose their homes. A million fathers may wonder how they will feed their children. But Government America was still supposed to grind on, growing fat on their toil, spending billions on a whim around the world and then sending in SWAT teams at the merest regulatory infraction.

“I had rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world,” George Washington said. Now the city named after him has become the home of a new Sun King and his empire of government workers. The farms have closed. The factories have been shut down. But the government buildings continue to rise.

Yesterday the sun set on Washington D.C. May it rise one day on a new nation whose leaders would rather be farmers than emperors.

Obama ‘Selectively’ Closed Most Popular Memorials

Vetblocked

‘Honor Flights’ of WW II Vets will be permitted to memorial.  Other Americans will be barred says Park Service.  Obama now decides which American Citizens are afforded First Amendment Rights.

As most of us knew, Obama is playing politics to intimidate opposition to his agenda and/or incite a civil war with the petulant temper tantrum shutting down open air memorials, yanking websites offline and blaming the entire fiasco on his political opposition while his sycophant stormtroopers in the media suggest Obama use the military to punish Tea Party Conservatives.

Proof of the former is found from a House Committee that cites Obama’s regime choosing the most popular memorials for targeted closure and shuttering.  This is the same old thing Obama did with his Sequester that shut down military air shows and flyovers during parades and events this past Summer.

After Tuesday and Wednesday’s storming of the Barry-Cades by angry vets into the WWII Memorial, the firestorm forced a change in tactics by the Obama regime and the Department of the Interior who now say the Memorial can stay open for vets for “First Amendment Activity”.  I guess to Obama, some 1st Amendment Rights are more equal than others.

On Wednesday, the Obama administration attempted to take the World War II memorial issue off the table by allowing monuments to reopen for groups like the Honor Flight vets.

“My understanding is that the closure order provides a process for accepting First Amendment activities on National Mall and memorial parks in D.C. and in Philadelphia,” he said.

Obama is an angry petulant man-child wielding his imperial power like a toddler having a hissy fit attempting to inflict as much pain on the American people as  possible so he can blame it on his political enemies and Breitbart has the story:

HOUSE COMMITTEE: OBAMA SELECTIVELY CLOSED MOST POPULAR TOURIST MEMORIALS

According to the House Committee on Natural Resources, the Obama administration has taken the unusual step of shutting down only the most popular tourist memorials in the nation’s capital, including the World War II Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and the National Mall. Other, lesser-visited sites, have been left open. “[T]he Obama Administration is applying this policy inconsistently and choosing which memorials to block off and which to keep open. While these popular monuments remain barricaded, other U.S. Park properties such as the Constitutional Gardens and Japanese Americans Memorial remain completely open,” the Committee said in a press release.

House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings stated, “It appears as though only the highly visible monuments and areas are being closed to the public – further proof that the Obama Administration is only playing politics and purposely choosing to make this shut down as painful as possible. Their actions are shameful and wrong.”

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.”

Vetblocked

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.

1995-Memorials-OpenLincoln-Memorial-1995

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’.

StormingTwitter

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.

NewBarricades

LincolnMemorial barricade

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.”

WWII and Lincoln Memorial Barricade Showdowns

Will aged Veterans of the Greatest Generation yet save us again from a megalomaniacal dictator and his stormtroopers?

Wednesday showcases vets stormed the memorial again and sang “Amazing Grace” around the fountain.
