To be perfectly honest, confronting these Park Rangers is not the correct course...
The Secretary of the Interior, and the President of the United Staes are to be held accountable for this outrage!!!
Not even the fact that I am a Veteran myself, should I be afforded an exception I am anyone else needs to visit these memorials, any of them!!!
I just got off the phone with my guy up there, and he said he and some of the Texas Delegation are signing a letter condemning these restrictions...
Big Deal!!! Nothing will be read, nothing will be done...
Plane fare is going to be a real bear of a deal, and if we have to “occupy” these facilities, then that sounds to me lie a really good idea...But I am thinking there are not enough of us, and too few that could afford such a road trip...Much less the time...
I would not waste a breath on the Park Rangers...
I imagine a nice folding chair, and a good book, and I’d be snug as a bug in a rug...
Are there any D.C. or area FReepers out there thining of the same thing???
FReepmail me if there is something going on...Keep this off the public forum as much as possible till that button is pushed!!!
That’s great optics! I’d love to see it,too. And would definetly get a big thrill!
BTW - thank YOU for your service! Anchors aweigh!
Here's another Red Line I like:
There should be 2 million bikers (calvary) headed there right now.
I bet the MLK POS memorial is still open.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

No, they answer to whoever signs their paychecks
Are they Federal employees? If so, WE sign their paychecks.

oh the poor sweet TOTUS will have its feelings...hurt
I am incredulous at how tone deaf the administration is about the WWII Memorial issue. It is just plain dumb on their part to let their opponents take the moral high ground. And even to give their enemies a physical rallying point!
When this issue broke earlier this week, the only reason I could see for the administration to do this was the belief that they could score a photo op of the WWII vets being tearfully turned away. That way, they could blame the Pubbies. When it did not happen, the smart thing to do would have been to quietly remove the barriers or just look the other way. I thought that was what was happening on Wednesday. Instead it looks like they are more than doubling down.
I read that another Honor Flight is scheduled for Wednesday October 9. That may be the key date. Will it be Selma or Omaha Beach?
theyve covered all bases
You dont have the governments permission to have a dream: MLK memorial Barry-caded [pics]
OCCUPY THE MONUMENTS!!
OCCUPY K STREET!!
Ruah alluded on his program, that this wire on the gate story may be a ruse.......I hope it isnt...but that said,
I caution all of us to not perpetuate this narrative, if it is indeed false...I do not want out folks to lose their credibility, when the Democraps are doing a fantastic job of ruining theirs :-)
Can’t wait. My Uncle didn’t lie to get into the navy and fight this war when he was 15 for this muslim to screw with us.
“...WE sign their paychecks....”
No, some little douchebag bureaucratic federal weasel that can’t be fired signs his/her paycheck and has it direct-deposited (so the money can be instantly STOPPED should one of their employees get “uppity”).
When was the last time YOU PERSONALLY signed and handed one of these folks their check?
Like I said - I know how it’s SUPPOSED to work - But reality is what it is.
It’s up to each and every Alphabet agent to decide, there and on the spot - who they are going to listen to: Barry, or the voice in their head that tells them what is right.
Doing what’s RIGHT has consequences. Job-ending consequences for people that have families to feed.
Life has choices, and choices have consequences.
The real question is - are you ready to deal with the consequences of your choices?
Some people will - Because some things are more important than money, and principles need to be believed in and acted upon; you either BELIEVE you are a Free Man and ACT like it - like our Ancestors did - or you don’t.
It’s pretty much that simple.
But I fear you’ll see many more that will forget that they are Americans first, and just do what they’re told to do, to protect themselves.
An AMERICAN would say “f*** this” and either NOT put the wire ties on, or slice them a little while installing them so they break at the slightest touch.
An AMERICAN would “f*** this” and step aside and HOLD the barricade open as a 90+ year old AMERICAN veteran came up in his wheelchair.
We’ll see who the Americans are - and who they aren’t.
He sees your barricade removal and raises you a reinforced wire locking device. :-)
Nor My Grandfather !!
Go green. Pack all the barricades into pickup trucks and haul them to a metal recycler.
Indeed and AMEN!
My uncle did the same and wound up in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He married his nurse at St. Albans Naval Hospital and went on to have a very full life. Never once complained about his disability and loved, loved loved the Navy. He would be beyond disgusted by the cretin in the WH.
The question I have for general consumption is this at this point...
Would public perception, even if it is generally positive, look upon an “occupy” effort as disrespectful to those that are honored here at this memorial???
Just a random reality check...
My Uncle (God rest) took shrapnel from a kamikaze, first time they saw them. Never talked about it. Not til the end. I have his purple heart, his dog tags the shrapnel and the telegram to my grandmother saying he was injured.
I know we still have that fighting spirit. Listen to Patton’s speech. We still are the greatest. The reds in this country are now exposed. And they think they are gonna win. this is the weatherman underground plan, the only one they have and they have been at it since the end of WW2. McCarthy was right.
You do not have to ‘occupy’.
Without being disrespectful, just stand in front of the wire,shoulder to shoulder, forming a continuous human chain completely around the space with two or three key openings. Possibly then allowing only vets and citizens, and discourage the Press or Politicians from entering.
I suspect that thered be room for the barack the Tin Woodsmen Obama in with the load of barracides.....
You may want to look closely at the potato-masher grenade and the helmet insignia and style in your picture.
It’s funny everyone is thinking send 2million bikers or truckers or just citizens to D.C.
No boycott the damn place and starve their economy!
Show them what a shut down really is!
0 has really shown his ass this time!
Barack Obama is becoming the Nikita Khrushchev of our time. The walls are getting bigger, and more reinforced. Since NOBODY is responding to FOIA requests in government, when all of this is over we should find out the cost of closing an OPEN AIR memorial dedicated to men and women of the Greatest Generation. These guys stormed Nazi Europe, I’m sure they can operate the machines necessary to remove the Berlin Wall of Washington.
“Listen to Pattons speech.”
If you mean the one in the Patton movie - that was great! I’ve seen that movie many times (though not for awhile).
We should get the Fox channel or Fox movie channel to broadcast it. I bet there are many Americans, especially the x-gens and millenials that haven’t seen it (unfortunately, most of them probably don’t even have a clue who Patton was!)
Maybe if Fox broadcasts it right after American Idol, many that otherwise wouldn’t tune in will do so (why bother changing the channel - - too much effort).
As an aside, people can be standing by to take the place of those who become tired or need a bathroom break. The chain may require a few thousand people, but out of 300 million plus, there should not be a problem getting volunteers.
Hanks is a true believer.
Absolutely nothing will EVER change his sycophantic love of Obama.
Even if Obama had the vets arrested and beaten, Hanks would just go nuts on a rant blaming the Tea Party. Hanks is that much of a delusional leftist.
I did a quick search on wwii cutting wire and got that one. I did notice that after posting... there unfortunately is no “delete”...
However, the general concept was applicable.
Smart move, keep trying to spread the pain, nobama.
This IS turning into a PR disaster for nobama and dingyharry. Nice.
If this has been posted already, consider it more fuel for the fire:
Fox news blog covered it, with a pic - - -
Great! Love it!
MR. OBAMA, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!!!
Mister Cindy Sheehan so to speak....
Great reply! Thanks.
One more media website for y’all. Now that hundreds and hundreds of reporters are being laid off across the country, the ones remaining are nervous and scared. They now have good reason to be nice to conservatives. Here is the contact info for all U.S. newspapers and TV stations. Just click on your state - it’s tanfastic.
