Yesterday, the Obama Administration got real petty over the partial government shutdown, sending employees to barricade memorial sites around Washington that are normally open 24/7.
Thankfully, one group of WWII vets wasn't having ANY of it - removing barricades, with the help of fantastic GOP Reps. like Steve King (R-IA) and others - and refusing to be denied access to THEIR World War II Memorial.
Well today, another group of WWII vets plan to do the same thing at the Lincoln Memorial, as Weasel Zippers reports...
The same veterans group that managed to storm the gates at the WWII memorial yesterday is planning taking on the fences at the Lincoln Memorial today. This sounds like a capitol idea, pun intended.Members of Congress are reaming Obama over the disgraceful barricading of these open-air public memorials.
Both memorials are open air memorials. The Lincoln Memorial is open 24 hours a day, normally. If youll recall, it was wide open to having someone throw green paint on it in the evening a few months ago.
So that means the Obama administration is making a conscious effort to spend more in time and money to shut off something which is normally open.
How ridiculous is this effort by President Obama to make the people hurt so he can blame it on Republicans, just as he did with the sequester, which was also his idea?
We still dont have access to the White House, the peoples house, allegedly because of the sequester, although Obama has spent countless of our millions since then on vacations, parties and golf.
When you have the opportunity to pass bills for veterans and national parks,unconnected to Obamacare, and then dont pass them, or spend more to close spaces then to keep them open, the reason is simply you want to continue to have people feel the pain.
And that, Mr. President, is sick.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted the administration for trying to block the World War II vets yesterday, saying some idiot in government sent goons out there to set up barricades.
This morning those same "goons" - who somehow are on the job despite most certainly being "non-essential" - were setting up fresh barricades around major open-air memorial sites around D.C. (see photo below of their activities at the WWII Memorial around 9am).
As with his absurdly shutting off the "Panda Cam" at the National Zoo - which is already fully-funded by the Ford Motor Company Fund - Obama is using the shutdown as a political tool, just as he disgracefully did with the Sequestration.
Remember, during the sequestration - in fact, before it even took effect - Obama's DHS insanely , citing non-existent budget cuts. Those released aliens contained dozens of violent criminals, most of whom are still at large.
SWA salutes the "Greatest Generation" vets who stormed the beaches, for taking on Obama's goons by storming the memorials this week. We urge anyone in the D.C. Metro area to JOIN THEM, and refuse to be barred from the People's Memorials by political games.
Exactly my thoughts..
“...actively facilitating entry by the Vets in acts of insubordination...”
Needs to be emphasized and repeated over and over.
People are tuning in late to this.
Go the VA, USPS and almost any gubermint facility...its all about diversity and it will get worse.

**Wow, all radical lefty loons..shocker
Reminds me of his tantrum in the rose garden when his gun control failed to pass
the scumbag has never accomplished a SINGLE THING in his life by the merit of his own effort
And therefore a perfect representative of his voters then. He is the ultimate parasite. Fancy vacations at the taxpayers' expense. A bone deep sense of entitlement as seen by how he acts when him whims are thwarted. Massively incompetent (can you spell Sytia?) Arrogant and narcissistic in that he has a completely exaggerated view of his abilities. In short typical black attitudes from the black grievance industry.
I tried, I can barely contain myself over this.
I am truly angry at this despicable treatment of HEROES by this man who is lower than snail s***.
I can’t take it.
Did they close the MLK monument?
Apparently I can’t spell Syria
In this case it probably should be hands or maybe heads of the freaking hydra. In any case cooler heads will prevail. We didn’t defeat Hitler by out shoveling him people into furnaces. We need to be better than the despicable snakes we now face.
For those few who did the right thing, kudos. But for those who "just followed orders" and put up the signs and barriers and threatened vets with arrest, they deserve the opprobrium they get.
Yes but he is only the result of America’s complacency towards individual liberty and freedom.
So choose this day how you will serve; Will you serve unwillingly and at the bidding of others wearing the yoke of the false and failed way of socialism or will you hold true to the course of our forefathers standing tall and serving freely? As for me I choose to SERVE THE REPUBLIC!..
gee, the driver of the fork lift would look like Obama’s son if he was a heterosexual.
that’s funny I just noticed that the two goons putting up the barricades as well as the driver of the fork lift would look like Obama’s sons.... if he was a heterosexual and had children.
You ain’t alone, friend...
I’m right there with you.
My loathing of the illegitimate, bisexual, Marxist Kenyan Muslim Usurper requires medication.
No one will be there to enforce the closures, unless they’re lying to us about the “shut down”.
Amen to both of your words.
