SATIRE: Obama DOT Plans use of National Guard to close I-495 Capital Beltway tomorrow?
RedState ^ | October 10th, 2013 | Glenn Ryt

Posted on 10/10/2013 8:30:24 AM PDT by Mortrey

Sources within the Department of Transportation have revealed that their plan to use National Guard resources to close federally funded Interstate Route 495, circling the nation’s capital, have been approved by unknown White House officials and will be implemented on Friday morning, October 11, in order to thwart the three day Trucker slowdown announced on the Capitol Beltway starting that date, using the federal government shutdown as justification.

Is THIS the reason Benghazi Barry made a "surprise visit" to FEMA Area 3 the other day?

If true, this is an OUTRAGE and Barry's poll numbers will plummet, so that will be the silver, err, I mean GOLD, lining.

Obama has never served in the US Military.

Obama is as incompetent a military leader as can be elected to be Commander in Chief.

Obama “leaks” Secret Military information to boost himself politically, which commonly results in deaths of the Warriors involved in the Military operation, as well as retaliation threats to their families.

Obama also has a psycho mean streak which renders him unfit to be in authority of anything in the US Federal Government.

For example, the “Pay Our Military Act” was signed into Federal Law by Obama on 9-30-2013.

Obama KNEW that death benefits were covered when he signed the bill into Law on 9-30-2013 !

This documents that Commander in Chief Obama CHOSE to punish, after death,” those who had given their last full measure of devotion” by dictating that Funeral Expenses be denied to HIS dead Warriors.

Obama has thus shown himself to be a ghoulish tyrant who is more than willing to inflict maximum pain “on his own people,” to borrow an expression that Obama used recently against his fellow tyrant in Syria.

Please post on this thread the hotlinks to any news articles on the 26 slain Warriors that Obama has refused to pay funeral expenses for, prior to Obama’s yesterday’s CYA “legal” action.

Obama must be held accountable for this ghoulish Dereliction of Duty as the Commander in Chief.

Sounds like a brilliant plan: Shut down the I-495 beltway to prevent a possible shut down of the I-495 beltway.

Might be a little more effective than banning curbside luggage check-in to thwart terrorists of a certain religious persuasion which cannot be named from boarding airlines with box cutters . . .

Probably so !
Incidently , isn't the White House FEDERALLY OWNED property ?
Maybe we should demand the Park Service close the White House and grounds since there is NOTHING THERE THAT IS ESSENTIAL !
The several vacations and golfing trips have already demonstrated that !!

Show up today, show up the day after, ask the nation, if there is a shutdown, where does he get the money much less the authority to do this? DOT is not authorized to call up the NG.

Some truck lines are. We avoid using them.

The biggest growth names in the truck freight industry are non-union. Places like ABF, Old Dominion, Ward's and others. As a bonus, these guys not only deliver and pick up your freight without an attitude, they can actually be seen using a pallet jack to help you get loaded and unloaded quicker.

DoT has no authority to use the National Guard for anything.

The National Guard is totally under the control of the Governor (in this case, the separate governors of MD, VA, and DC, with DC being a bit different).

DoT can not order them nor could it pay for them under current shutdown.

Somebody needs to do a little research before they post these things.

He's a full-blown, power mad sociopath and he makes up the rules as he goes along.

He truly believes he's invincible and smarter than everyone else.

Stupid never enter his mind. He'd rather shut them out, than deal with the "display."

Had me, until I read this quote:

“Since Interstate 495 is clearly a federal roadway,” report our DOT sources, and “the federal government is now closed because of the crazy House of Representatives Republicans,

The mark of excellent satire is that it's just close enough to reality to be indistinguishable from the real thing. Well played.

But there’s a roadblock up on the cloverleaf,
And them bears was wall-to-wall.
Yeah, them smokies was thick as bugs on a bumper;
They even had a bear in the air!
I says, “Callin’ all trucks, this here’s the Duck.
“We about to go a-huntin’ bear.”

‘Cause we got a great big convoy
Rockin’ through the night.
Yeah, we got a great big convoy,
Ain’t she a beautiful sight?
Come on and join our convoy
Ain’t nothin’ gonna get in our way.
We gonna roll this truckin’ convoy

Thanks ... I know in the day Union Pacific’s subsidiary trucking company was non-union but wasn’t sure how much influence the Teamsters had these days.

The libs are already howling over the truckers on some boards, unlike their support and admiration for OWS. Such hypocrites they are.

How? The MSM will portray this as "Congress'" fault and the Republican's fault.

The 80 percent of America which follows national and international events passively will suck up this view, and lean further against the House Republicans.

Calls to both the White House and the Department of Transportation to confirm this story were not answered at press time.

What do the State of Maryland and the Commonwealth of Virginia have to say about this? It is their States and their National Guards.

What’s the End Game here? Will Soeotoro give the order for the National Guard to shoot any trespassers on to I-495? How about trespassers at Old Faithful - shoot these people, too?

The whole Administration should be arrested.

So... They’re going to thwart the trucker slowdown by completely shutting down I-495.

Another Spite House reaction! So in order to keep the truckers from shutting down two lanes of the Beltway, Zero is gonna shut down all of it. LOL! What a moron. He keeps showing his true colors. I’m sure our truckers will be innovative in how they make their point within DC.
