The Pisgah Inn is closed compliments of the federal government. It's a private business that is located on government property. One of many businesses that are shutdown across the country. Some totally privately owned and operated. This will not stand.
The order to close came from US Park Service National Director, Mr. John Jarvis. He has been contacted. As citizens of these United States, we will exercise our freedom to assemble. We are assembling at noon Saturday, 10/4. Please be at Pisgah Inn.
We need to start demanding that the federal government return land to the states. The federal land grab has been going on too long, and has only increased under Obama. The federal government disrespects states and citizens. Definitely not what our founding fathers wanted.
Why the hell haven’t they shut down PBS?
We are currently organizing the trip up from Dacusville. Looks like there is going to be big showing.
Tea Party should hold its rallies in the inner cities. If they can turn the blacks against the government, checkmate, game is over.
Last I checked, the Blue Ridge Parkway is still open, is it not? So there’s no reason to shut down a private concessionaire operating on a wide-open road even if the road is technically a National Park. This is nothing more than “optics” from the Obama regime, and it’s backfiring, even in Asheville, which is Granola Central in North Carolina (probably the most leftist spot in the state, maybe tied with Durham and Chapel Hell).
“but legally, they may have recourse if they lease and run as their own business”
Yea, sure, that’s the ticket! Good luck with that! The way the courts are ruling, they won’t even grant them “Standing”.
I spent a weekend at the Pisgah Inn a few weeks ago. Denying people the right to their pecan pie should be considered a crime against humanity.
Go Tea Partiers!
Be inspired—the WW2 vets are taking one more beachhead today:
I don’t know - all I can find is this from Breitbart:
“Pisgah Inn receives no federal money, and according to owner Bruce OConnell, who spoke exclusively to Breitbart News, All we do is pay the government money. We dont take anything from them. It is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which was deemed a thoroughway and therefore left open by the National Parks Service. Nonetheless, earlier this week, the NPS moved to shut it down. Michael Litterst, chief spokesman for the Park Service, said, We do not believe it is appropriate or feasible to have some parts of the system open while others are closed to the public.
Apparently, the owner has been contacted by Michelle Bachman and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).

Here is another article.
Isn’t the National Park Service FEDERAL employees?
What are they doing working when the government is shut down?
I can’t recognize their claims to authority.
White House Press Release: “The beatings will continue until morale improves.”
Does this mean Biltmore is shut down, too?
“...good, solid NCers have taken control of the state!!!!!!”
OK to that, but there are still lots of leftwing nutbags in Asheville, Charlotte, Chapel Hill, etc.
In fact, don’t rule out a leftie counterprotest at the Pisgah Inn. Asheville is only a few stoned hippies away.
Park Rangers Ordered to Make Life Difficult During Shutdown
The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and theyre only here to help.
our feral gubbamint at work.
