Obama Administration Now Making 1st Amendment Decisions On American Citizens
10/3/13 | self

Posted on 10/02/2013 10:17:01 PM PDT by Lmo56

Most of you know that the NPS backed off today and allowed the veterns from the Honor Flights to access the WWII Memorial - as it should have all along.

The NPS has reasoned that the vets are asserting their 1st Amendment assembly rights. It will also allow subsequent Honor Flights the same access for the rest of the week.

HOWEVER, the NPS has declared [on orders from the Obama Admin.]that OTHER tourists and visitors DO NOT have the same 1st Amendment assembly rights. THEREFORE, the NPS has prohibited them from accessing the WWII Memorial.

A politico has vowed to sue the NPS in federal court over this issue ...

I would hope that anyone within driving distance of Washington DC would go out there and knock down some barricades. Especially ones manned by NPS personnel, and challenge those employees to make an arrest. As they’ll have to finally cite some authority for the ability to ban your entry.

Last I checked, ‘because we said so’ wasn’t actually ever written into any law. In fact, most laws about the national parks REQUIRE the federal government to permit entry, with exemptions for emergencies such as natural disasters, imminent dangers, etc.

Lights out, gates closed, workers gone,,,, and people understand that kind of closed.

BUT, spending EXTRA money to install gates, paying cops overtime to keep you away, keeping numerous extra cops around to do so. Switching general information web pages at places like NASA over to a blank screen. And people know you are just screwing with them.
And they blame you. A-hole Obama.

Not good enough. The vets fought for the freedoms of us all, not just themselves.

Yeah - and the WWII Memorial is an unguided, open-air memorial. I live close and have NEVER seen NPS personnel there.

BTW - The Vietnam Memorial was not closed off ...

Most of this stuff makes my head hurt, so I'm more of an agnostic.

Bammy is bad for a righteous America, as America was founded.

Interesting information/data tidbit. The WW II Memorial is PRIVATELY funded. It is an open facility accessible from adjoining sidewalks. How does Hussein Obama closed this facility? By what right?
National World War II Memorial
The National World War II Memorial was funded almost entirely by private contributions, as specified in Public Law 103-32. The campaign received more than $197 million in cash and pledges. Support came from hundreds of thousands of individual Americans, hundreds of corporations and foundations, veterans groups, dozens of civic, fraternal and professional organizations, states and one territory, and students in 1,200 schools across the country.

Donated and pledged funds were used to cover the total project costs of approximately $182 million. These costs include site selection and design, construction and sculpture, a National Park Service maintenance fee required by the Commemorative Works Act, groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies, fund raising, and the 11-year administrative costs of the project from its inception in 1993 through completion in 2004.

Remaining funds are held on deposit with the U.S. Treasury in a National WWII Memorial Trust Fund. The funds will be used by the American Battle Monuments Commission solely to benefit the World War II Memorial.

I’m starting to think he is. He’s definitely an enabler who puts things in place for the anti-Christ to come on the scene.

According to the NPS website for the Viet Nam (and Korean) Memorial, it's closed. If you are there, of course I defer to your knowledge.

Viet Nam: www.nps.gov/vive/

Korea: www.nps.gov/KWVM/‎

Here's a link to what appears to be vets going to the Vietnam Memorial and breaching the barricades there.

I can't personally say for certain, as it has been some decades since I was there, but I don't remember any low fences at the entrances to the ramps at the memorial, so those likely are NPS barricades.

What does he think the Vets are going to do without his staff around; trash the place? Score Meth? Steal things?

They don’t need help there.

Just open the gate and let them in.

Ugh freedom. I can’t breathe.

Permits, permits, uniformed personnel.

He should just treat the whole place like its Benghazi.

Been thinking that for a long time. It is such a shame since he is the first “real” Black President. I was so hoping for Thomas Sowell-type. The pope says some bizarre things also, though......

We are in the times where Good is Evil and Evil is Good. Truth is not heard in the public square hardly. When it is-—it is vilified.

Civil Disobedience! How can they claim they have no money to keep it open, but they have enough money to check to make sure that only WWII veterans can access the grounds?

This is BS!

Everyone within 100 miles of DC needs to visit this memorial this weekend and let them try to arrest everyone!

This is war! It is long past time to challenge the authority of these Obama goons!

Bring your cameras! Let the you tube wars begin!

What I want to know is; how much is it costing to acquire and put up these barricades and how much is it going to cost to take down and remove the barricades after this is over?

There is no reason to close the open air memorials that are accessible 24 hours a day under normal circumstances. These memorial do not have attendants 24 hours a day.

Closing these memorials is a political tactic not a necessity.

I am willing to bet that these barricades are rented and are costing the country money on a per day bases.

The shutdown should last until Obama is out of office.

How interesting that nasa.gov should redirect to notice.usa.gov:

Due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available.
We sincerely regret this inconvenience.

For information about available government services, visit USA.gov.


Este sitio web no se está disponible durante el cierre del Gobierno.
Lamentamos profundamente las molestias que esto pueda causar.

Visite GobiernoUSA.gov para informarse sobre los servicios gubernamentales disponibles durante el cierre del Gobierno.

May God damn el Gobierno federal de los Estados Unidos!

Sounds like a job for the Patriot Riders, if someone could get it organized fast enough.

he is a hybrid of east an west

hates america - christian nation - and the jews - israel

is a muslim, loves muslims

arming muslims, has overseen the overthrow of soon to be three leaders there

his name has correlation to aramaic phrase lightning falling from the sky, a reference to satan being kickd out of heaven.

everything is about him, narcissist, god complex

laws mean nothing to him

never had a more wicked, evil president than him

You would think so but the whole world does not worship him, he hasn’t performed miracles, like fire to come down from heaven, nor has he caused all to take a mark in their forehead or hand. Granted there is still time...

These parks are PRIVATELT funded and run - what right has he?

This is a good time for people to defy is illegal orders - he’s handing ua a window for media coverage - it should wake some more people up that he’s closed all these PRIVATE parks that were paid for by the people - and NOT through taxes. C’mon people, do your research...

He's not the anti-Christ and I wouldn't give him that kind of promotion even in thought.
When the Anti-Christ rears it's ugly head everyone will recognize it and
the horror that will ensue will become surreal unlike any sci-fi imagined
movie could ever show. Now if Obama started pulling monkeys out of his ass
it would finally confirm he's truly a ass-clown.

Now if you were to judge Obama by his reasons, and the company he keeps, and
political appointees he surrounds himself with, the only answer would be Communist.

I’ve always had a problem with the term “Government Owned Property,” other than military installations.

Why does our government own so much property?

Or any property (other than military installations) at all?

I don’t believe Obama is the anti-Christ, but he is a precursor. Before his ‘reign’ I couldn’t imagine how informed people would so blindly follow an evil leader, how they would turn against everything a sane society recognizes as ‘right’, how so many could be persuaded to give up so much for so little in return. Now I know.

I have liberal ‘friends’ who I have absolutely no doubt would look away and say nothing if my family and I were being hauled away to ‘re-education camp’, NO doubt! That’s beyond sad.
