Great idea-—read the speech on the floor of Congress.
“Thank God for the WWII vets.”
Many who come today and are turned away from their own memorial - paid for by blood and sacrifice - will not have the health to make a return trip to give honor to their fallen comrades.
SHAME ON DEMOCRATS AND THIS ADMINISTRATION!
The man with no birth certificate nor friends from his past?
That is why those same barricades are being broken down. They face worse.
I like the guy, but Rand Paul needs to start his brain before engaging his mouth.
The “Goons” just pulled a “We see nothing here” move and turned their backs as the Honor Flight vets approached the baricades. The Heroes of WWII are now BACK in their memorial. To great fanfare.
Let me be clear here: the “Goons” just pulled off a major act of civil disobedience against the President and their own leadership.
best post (image) I have seen in months!!!!!
Wish they would have stuck a Garand up their azzes!
I stand with Rand!
“...the Goons just pulled off a major act of civil disobedience against the President and their own leadership...”
If that is so, then they need to commended and cheered, loudly and publicly on the spot, to send a message.
The vets apparantly found a loophole in the shutdown rules. Per the WTOP feed, people can’t be denied access to public open space if they’re engaging in 1st Amendment activities.
Fox had cameras rolling.
Tanknetter, you have NO idea how happy I was to read your post that the NPS guys stood tall - and ACTED LIKE AMERICAN MEN - in doing what they did.
Again, I thank you for posting it and bringing it peoples’ attention here.
The “goon” terminology is just a natural reaction among free people to efforts like this; people are quick to react because the outrages just keep coming.
Please keep reinforcing who is helping OUR people, and who isn’t.
Yeah, the law’s a bitch when it ain’t working for the other side, ain’t it... Haha!!
.....Hussein Obama...tear down theses BARRYcades!!!
“...Two million bikers would be a nice touch. ...”
How about letting every VFW post and American Legion post know what’s going as well... pronto.
MestaMachine says Fox has a camera on it right now. Good. They should be speeding MORE reporters there as we speak.
Put a spotlight on this so it CAN’T be ignore, and everyone on this board should be emailing and tweeting folks who aren’t aware of this being played out...
This needs to be posted and commented on every MSM story online. Don’t let them off the hook. Point out their chicanery and lies.
I just got done reading the three dozen pages of shutdown regulations which I've been given by a furloughed federal employee. I may have missed this, or it may be in another document. I don't doubt what you're saying at all but I'd love to get a “chapter and verse” reference.
It would also be helpful in responding to some Freepers who may not understand the legalities here. The other side is really good at manipulating fine print of regulations; we need to get just as good if we're going to win this thing.
It was out on the WTOP newsfeed several hours ago. They didn’t provide any citation beyond it coming from NPS sources.
It wouldn’t surprise me if some entrepreneurial NPS staffer came up with it as a creative interpretation in order to defuse the situation. Yesterday there were 90 vets, a few Congresscritters and several dozen of the vets’ family members
Today those numbers, from reports and pics, were easily double. It was becoming a spectacle that would invariably continue to grow on a daily basis. A spectacle that distracted from and ran counter to the desired visuals and narrative. So an “out” that would get the situation out of the media was quickly found.
It’s out, in more detail, on the current ABCNews.com article. Sorry, can’t link to it from cellphone, but the cite is in the 5th para of the article
Thanks very much for your update earlier.
Backlash coming, wanna bet?

Sooner, rather than later BUT we have to do as ‘they’ do.
Chip at the top and work your way down, we know there are 15% on either side you couldn’t move if you detonatd an HBomb in their back or fanny pack.
You can bet your bippy that if the R’s had the WH and Senate, with the D’s having Congress and if the #’s were 54 R’s and 46 D’s, that the D’s would ram legislation through that would demand a 60 vote vote.......R’s just TALK about it, D’s do it.
Also, at the 56-46 the D’s would not be worrying about a lot of ‘crossing the aisle’...UNLESS, of course, it meant say a D in a strong R state was on the fence and his vote were meaningless......
The D’s play CHESS while the R’s are still trying to figure out if they want Red or Black in the game they think may be checkers...
I don’t ‘like’ and can’t ‘stand’ the LIBS but at least they have loyalty down pat.....
tanknetter found it and posted it.
I just repeated it.
Whatever gets the word out. One Team, One Fight.
You both are VERY welcome!
I’m sure Juan Williams was there to argue.
Enjoy hell bitch.
Sometimes even useless government morons do the right thing.
Or maybe they heard the remarks and didn’t want to be painted as stupid a-holes since now they know they’ll be in photos and videos.
Whatever little part we play... we play it.
There is no good reason why any site on the mall and surrounding areas should be closed. They should be open during daylight hours. We don’t need people to hold our hands. Shame on the Democrats!
Arlington should never be closed. If I had someone interred there, I’d be furious! Heck, I’m furious without someone interred.
It makes me physically ill that it is true. I grieve for my country.
