Has The Federal Penitentiary at Leavonworth Kansas been shutdown?

I certainly hope that if it has been it will be re opened in plenty of time to house the man sure to become it's most infamous inhabitant.

*OBayMe and his Regime are spitting in the eyes of We The People and all those who serve, past, present, and future. Include in that the families and widows. Harry Reid, Pelosi, Durbin, Schumer, RATs and RINOs alike, are showing us their arrogance and their personal quest for power at all costs.*

I think more and more people seeing this tyrannical behavior are causing more people to want to “step off the plank” that is in the famous cartoon.

Any bets on whether the “insurgents” that would oppose such chicanery and have the gall to step over the barricades will be prosecuted to the full extent of whatever Zero and his DOJ asshat call the law? They won’t prosecute illegals, even repeat offenders with violent histories, but you can bet they will prosecute the patriots who offered their all to keep us free and safe.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

I think it’s time for us of us to separate from Washington DC-—

Disgraceful way to treat WW2 vets just to prove his little point. Probably spent more in three days with his barricades than spent on maintenance all year.

WND EXCLUSIVE

Obama behind ‘barrycades’ at WWII monument
New wave of veterans storms memorials in Washington
Published: 2 days ago

“This administration thinks this is a political game,” Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, said on Fox News Wednesday. “This is outrageous. This is a sidewalk. Leave it open.

“And I’m wondering what are they going to do next — hang a drapery over Mt. Rushmore? I mean, this is ridiculous!”

Gohmert said the open areas should be accessible to passersby even if lights and fountains are turned off.

He also offered a solution for similar problems.

“For those of use who voted to create memorials and have oversight, we’re authorized to go in and inspect them, even if it’s a surprise inspection,” he said.

And the best “inspectors” for such work?

“World War II veterans are the very best people,” he said.”

Does President Obama really want that public relations nightmare on his hands?

It's all about the spin. The MSM will report that despite all of Obama's best efforts, the GOP has shut down the government. And it is the shutdown that has closed parks. Therefore, the GOP is to blame for closing the WW II memorial.

The VFW and the American Legion need to step up, and right now. Perhaps also the Vietnam and Iraqi vet groups. America has trust in those organizations, and will listen.

“A couple hours later, when an Honor Flight of World War II veterans arrived, accompanied by Democratic and Republican members of Congress”

This is the first I recall reading that there were any Democrats there - the various stories I’ve read about and heard/seen on FNC - all congresscritters were Pubbies.

Apologies for being a bit dense and confused. They were FOR closing them, before they were FOR opening, before they were FOR wiring them shut?? I thought I had been following this story, but have obviously missed somthing.

On about Oct 2nd,the WA Post reported:

National Park Service to keep WW II Memorial open to veterans

“At the closed-off National World War II Memorial, two days of assaults by veterans prompted the National Park Service to announce that they had the legal right to be there and would not be barred in the future.”

As reported by 2ndDivisionVet on the thread below

“Tom Hanks Praises World War II Veterans for Breaching DC Memorial”

If Hanks could bring himself to join the vets at the memorial, that could be a game-changer. No speeches Tom, no indirect attempts to blame the GOP, just be there. Stand with the vets.

This thin wire....

It is a message from our president to its people. The state now owns all the freedoms generations have fought for. What are you going to do about it?

What are we going to do? Is this what Americans really want?

Being the then spouse of an active duty air force officer in the early 2000’s I found myself sitting next to a WW2 vet waiting to see a dermatologist at a military hospital. He began to tell me a story. He was an Air Force pilot flying missions over the Pacific against the Japanese. He told me how his best friend was also a pilot and their wives were best friends too. He then began to tell me about the day he saw his best friend shot down into the Pacific while they engaged with the Japanese and he began to tear up. I told him God bless him for his freedom... He didn’t want my thanks...only for us to remember. These are the men being kept out of the WW2 memorial.

Will we remember? This thin wire....

If that's true, I welcome the news! The Republicans should have invited willing Democrats to go with them from the very first.

This cannot be spun as a GOP vs. Obama issue. Because it's really a WW II vets vs. Obama issue.

(I actually like another Freeper’s suggestion of buying a bunch of cheap wire cutters and passing them out to the WW2 vets as they visit the memorial.)

I know I donated to the Memorial. In order to submit names of WWII veterans, you paid a certain amount ($25/person — I THINK). If you submitted a picture of the person, it was an additional fee. Then, when the Memorial was well under way, they requested additional donations, all of which I and millions of others donated to. There was no mention of federal funds being used to help with this memorial.

The Budget Fight and Obama’s Vindictive Streak
The president thinks negotiating with his “ideological” opponents on the budget is beneath him.
By Jonah Goldberg

Shutting down the government in an effort to use a budget fight to get rid of Obamacare is not the strategy I would have recommended for the GOP. And while Republicans can be blamed for starting the shutdown, it’s increasingly apparent that President Obama and the Democrats deserve the lion’s share of blame for not only prolonging it but also making it as painful as possible.

I placed a very polite call to SONCO at their 800 number on the fencing.

I was bumped up to a Vice President, it might have been the President, of the company.

The Barrycades were PURCHASED by the Park service years ago. They are NOT BEING RENTED by SONCO. They are not happy with the situation and have been getting calls and emails.

I would have to say SONCO gets a pass on this one. They are not involved.

I’m with you.

I don’t understand how anyone can relish Obama’s ‘victories’.

I will never understand how an America-hating, small minded, envious, lying, anti-Christian, Marxist, con-man like Barack Hussein Obama could be elected President of the greatest nation on earth. Twice.

But apparently many Americans think their fellow citizens need to be put in their place. The new morality is to covet the fruit of your neighbor’s labours, and to take it by force if they object. Anyone who stands against the looting must be punished.

God save the United States of America.
