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 dont have the money to pay to evict visitors from a park site that operates without costing them any money, she said.

We are 'safe' now..................
I wonder if the Hale Farm/Village is closed? Bet it is. It’s in the Cuyahoga Valley Park/Reservation.
More pain politics by the Obastard administration.
Jackboots in motion ping
Even bus turn around spaces are being Barry caded. Newt Gingrich posted a picture from Mount Vernon.
If they were Federal Law enforcement agents, I thought the government was in a shutdown.
Should get real interesting if they pull the same crap at Manassas, Wilderness, or Fredericksburg battlefields...I hear the distant rattle of Southern muskets.
The cartels that are growing in our national forests are loving this..
Obama hates America.
And America is just starting to hate Obama and his Democrats.
You do have to wonder about the wisdom of an organization that would use staff they dont 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.
That park must be where the bodies are buried.................

You really don’t have to wonder, if the organization is a government.
I don’t think I’ve ever been less angry at our government, media, and LIVs. When the vets get arrested....
Yes! Fire them now and we won't need to guillotine them later. :)
This is beyond perfect.
We need to grab them by the nose and kick ‘em. Repeat until done.
Seems Nixon really was a major termite to our Republic!
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.
Hey Barky, YOU didn’t build (or pay for) THAT!!!!
Thing is this Honor Flight will continue through the month, regardless of what happens in Congress / WH.
Civil Disobedience, if they put up barricades near you, push them out of the way.
Can someone check on the MLK memorial? I assume it will be the last one left open? No doubt doing a land office bidness?
This shutdown will become a parody the way “Sequester” did.
More of the “make it hurt” policy ushered in by the sequester.
I remember Clinton's "politics of personal destruction".
After Obama we can recall his brand of "pain politics".
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.
So Hale Farm is not within the feds Cuyahoga Park? I wonder if the bike path is open? I’m in Nordonia.
spoke to a # of GOP members coming out of RSC meeting. They're feeling confident and relaxed. Think WWII mem fiasco gives them upper hand
Stupidity knows no limits.
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.
This sounds like the same pettiness of Jimmy Carter not allowing the use of the WH tennis courts when he was away.
“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.”
Fox News or someone needs to get on these antics by our petty president.
Remember the words of Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s closest advisor; After we win this election, its our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we dont 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”
Exactly. I would think people in the area would be removing the barricades and forcing their way in to get it on the evening news.
This is absolute tyranny!
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'm seeing how much land is really under federal jurisdiction in this country.
I’m not sure if Hale Farm is under the feds or not. But the Metroparks are locally operated and open. That includes the Bike and Hike trail. http://www.summitmetroparks.org
