Shutdown Theater: NPS Orders Closure of Park that Receives No Federal Funding
The Washington Free Beacon ^ | October 2, 2013 | Lachlan Marka

Posted on 10/02/2013 9:41:19 AM PDT by don-o

The National Park Service has ordered the closure of a Virginia park that sits on federal land, even though the government provides no resources for its maintenance or operation.

The Claude Moore Colonial Farm announced on Wednesday that NPS has ordered it to suspend operations until Congress agrees to a deal to fund the federal government.

According to Anna Eberly, managing director of the farm, NPS sent law enforcement agents to the park on Tuesday evening to remove staff and volunteers from the property.

“You do have to wonder about the wisdom of an organization that would use staff they don’t have the money to pay to evict visitors from a park site that operates without costing them any money,” she said.

I wonder if the Hale Farm/Village is closed? Bet it is. It’s in the Cuyahoga Valley Park/Reservation.

If they were Federal Law enforcement agents, I thought the government was in a shutdown.

“You do have to wonder about the wisdom of an organization that would use staff they don’t have the money to pay to evict visitors from a park site that operates without costing them any money,”

Exactly. The funding for the NPS has been cut off.

They have no business going around terrorizing park visitors.

Boehner should man up and pass a resolution shutting down the rest of the government that still insists in operating. Just fire the fools. Maybe that’s the only way they’ll get the message.

You really don’t have to wonder, if the organization is a government.

From reading so many threads on NPS barricading, etc. I’d say someone in the heirarchy of the NPS is overreacting, OR this is from the top of the Obama Admin. to push to the tipping point. IOW They want a fight.

If so, they will more than likely get one.

Not sure but I’m in the N E Ohio area, and saw the Metroparks posting on facebook to say they are open. They are funded by the county, not the feds.

One good thing that has come of this is public awareness. People from both sides of the political spectrum are asking how the government can keep us off land that belongs to American citizens.

There was a thread earlier: the National Park rangers Barry-cading the WWII monument admitted they were doing so on the orders of the White House Office of Management and Budget.

How our great-great grand-sires made it across the oceans from the “old world”, then across the mountains and prairies of the new world - without the aid of any govt entity (save on rare occasion the US Army) - is baffling...

Always wondered why a park has to be closed if some Ranger Rick cant be there. Its a natural feature...it would be there even if nobody visited it.

Drive in, picnic/camp, drive out...no human assistance required.

And once that hate gets going, Obama will rue the day he ever was elected. Unlucky for him, Americans are not as dumb as he wants them to be, and though they may be a little slow in realizing what is happening (thanks to the LameStreamMedia) they know, now, and a revolution is brewing.

I really would not want to be in his shoes, or the shoes of the minions who have helped him...it will not be pretty, and it won’t be short...may they all live long in sorrow.

“There was a thread earlier: the National Park rangers Barry-cading the WWII monument admitted they were doing so on the orders of the White House Office of Management and Budget.”

That means then that OMB was ordered by none other than Obama, or somebody next to Obama who got his orders from Obama to close them down, and as I wrote yesterday, and I hope people will not trivialize what I say here the Democrat politicians no matter take their orders from the Democrat Party. This is a truth. Each one of those Dem politicians is like a soldier, and abides by the direction of the party right up to the President of the U.S.A.

There’s a phone call every morning with daily talking points to a key person within the party whom I believe from articles I’ve read in the past is Chuck Schumer who then has his daily conference call to pump up the Democrat troops with those talking points just like a football coach to his team.

As I wrote to another thread last night: “...all Democrat politicians are of loyalty to the party more so than to their constituency, or their country.

The Party is everything to a Democrat Politician. The Party is where they get their direction, and where they reap their rewards for their loyalty.”

Remember the words of Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s closest advisor; “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay”

That is soooo not true! I started hating that little cockroach when he crawled into the light of day during the Illinois Senate race.

Things have not improved one wit, he is still a despicable, duplicitous enemy of the state and dare I say it, he could give politicians a bad name.

I got a facebook notice from OBX that Oregon Inlet Fishing Center (Outer Banks, NC) was closing yesterday. Boats couldn't dock if they had left for fishing. It looks like it has to do with the government shutdown. I didn't know the fishing center had anything to do with the feds. Maybe it's on the Hatteras National Seashore lands.

I'm seeing how much land is really under federal jurisdiction in this country.
