Obama barricades Lincoln Memorial unlike during 1995 “shutdown”
Legal Insurrection ^ | October 2, 2013 | William A. Jacobson

Posted on 10/02/2013 6:09:18 AM PDT by 11th_VA

Barry-cades become symbol of Obama’s shutdown.

Morgen Richmond, of the former Verum Serum blog, has been doing great research on the closure of parks and monuments in Washington, D.C. by Obama and the Democrats, revealing rank hypocrisy and mean-spiritedness.

For example, The White House now claims that it needed to erect barricades at the WWII Memorial to keep out vistors, including a group of visiting WWII veterans, because parks service personnel know how to perform CPR. (Seriously, that’s the claim.)

But Morgen demonstrated that the WWII memorial is open 24 hours a day, but only staffed part of the day, which means that for much of the time it’s open there are no parks service personnel there at all. Such much for the bogus CPR defense.

"The public may visit the World War II Memorial 24 hours a day." Staffed from 9:30 am to 11:30 pm. http://t.co/9NSCphRYD4

— Morgen (@morgenr) October 2, 2013

@jaketapper but it's open even when not staffed and 911 still works so CPR excuse is nonsense

We need cartoons depicting Obama and Valerie Jarrett holding weapons and trying to keep American veterans out of their memorial.

Its an open memorial for crying out loud. It was designed that way, for people to walk through. No admittance process required.

I walked through it last year and didn’t see any Park Police anywhere. Securing it is ludicrous and an affront to ALL veterans.

Of course the pRes_ _ent did.

Lincoln was documented and freed slaves.

Obama is undocumented and has made slaves of Americans.

This news will never see the light of day on any of the libstream channels or websites. And the Dems know this. Hence their brazen middle finger to everyone else. When your dad is the referee/principal/chief of police, you can pretty much get away with anything.

It would be a LEAD story if the MSM could find a way to implicate and blame Reopublicans. Then it would get saturation coverage.

Well, this is typical Obama---word has it that the WH has sent orders down through the various agencies, especially those that deal closely with the general public each day like the NPS, to close these things down and make the shutdown as painful as possible to score political points. It's the same thing they did when the sequester first went into effect.

Another example are government websites like the Library of Congress search engine---it went down even though it cost more to do it than to leave it up. What point was that except to annoy users?

..this is what you get when a narcissistic 12 yr old gets power. It’s his way to display his hatred for anything to do with America’s greatness. Whenever he is challenged, or he is questioned or shown to be incompetent, he lashes out as most narcissistic persons do.....I JUST HOPE MORE ORGANIZATIONS WALK AROUND THE “CLOSED” DC MONUMENTS...THEY DON’T BELONG TO HIM, THE BELONG TO US!

Here's an Idea... instead of paying a visit to DC, the den of thieves, why not break away and visit some other great place... in other words, lets make it really hurt, spend your vacation money somewhere else... go white water rafting, florida keys snorkeling, cross country sight seeing, or best of all, get together with some Tea Party friends and perform an act of civil disobedience, go camp out in a national park somewhere... that'll really infuriate the left.

This is the will indoctrinated Alinsky community organizer tactic of doing the most inane things and blaming it on someone else. Create a target and institute minutes of hate toward it.

The local radio stations here in DC are saying that the park service, when asked about the fencing off of the Lincoln Monument and WW2 memorial, told them that the ENTIRE MALL from the Capitol Building to the Lincoln Memorial is “officially closed and trespassers are subject to arrest.” Which means that folks walking across the Mall could end up in Jail. I’m wondering if they are going to block off all of the streets that bi-sect the Mall? That will really screw up traffic, but I don’t put it past Obambo to issue such an order.

This is a very sad day in America. I am ashamed to now say that I once served her as an enlisted member of the military, and now serves her as a federal employee (who is, yes, furloughed).

Obama has turned the USA into a socialist nation, where now peace loving people who just want to visit a war museum erected in their honor are in danger of having a gun pointed at them and arrested.

I hope reid and obama are stupid enough to keep the government shut down for weeks. Let the message be sent that we don’t need the government; things (gasp) actually still function without DC. The “national parks” will be just fine and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

The Honor Flights that take veterans to these memorials usually include several medical escorts. A year ago my son escorted my 90 year old father-in-law on what was one of the hottest days in DC. After their long day and as they were on final approach back to Dayton, a passenger had a seizure to which my son and another escort responded and were able to stabilize until met by a squad at the gate. The irony, it was a 24 young man who had the seizure, all the veterans (several in their 90s) we fine.

While it IS a sad day in our country, please do not be ashamed of your service and answering the call.
I served for ten years and as a supportive spouse, another 20. I would do it again in a heart beat...but not in today’s military thanks to the Kenyan in the white house, his military leaders and the repeal of DADT.
Our country and it’s citizens deserve so much better...God willing, this ordeal we are going through may bring about just that realization...we’ll see.

The communist left hates our military, our veterans, and their great victories.

It has never been demonstrated more than in this quick shutdown of the memorial. It is Obama spitting in the face of our veterans. It is the hippies of 1970’s spitting on our returning warriors.

ML King Jr. was an avowed communist.

His statue belongs next to those of Marx, Lenin and Chairman Mao.

But leave room there for Obama too.
