Skip to comments.In your face, Spite House! Blue Ridge inn blockaded by Park Police reopens today [legal docs #80]
Posted on 10/09/2013 9:28:20 AM PDT by abb
The Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina created a publicity crap storm for the Spite House when operators were forced to close during the government shutdown. The inn sits on federal land and despite the owners attempt to defy orders from the Park Police, he was forced to close his doors and throw away spoiled food during the height of fall foliage season.
Today, the inn will reopen at 5 p.m. and all October reservations will be honored.
His optics are melting down. We are winning! Steady as she goes.
Afraid you are correct.
Since his popularity ratings dropped to 37% even in an MSM poll, I’d say he had no idea what this would stir up.
Arrogant little ... well, fill in the blanks.
The Lizard Queen Jarrett.
But who is Jarrett's controller? Soros is just the front man for whoever is doing this. I can't imagine that any foreign country like China or Russia benefits from the utter destruction of the US because of he worldwide economic consequences. I'm not a sophisticated person and I can't figure the whole game out with the limited information the public and Freepers have access to.
About the National Parks: I’m inspired to visit the new one in my area when it reopens. Don’t know if they have much going on, it’s a battlefield.
The $hutdown may have not have the impact anticipated by $pitehouse because due the the continuing recession there aren’t that many people able to travel anyway. The Vets were available and the Evil Ones knew they would be visiting on a schedule.
Just ban half-white presidents.

He wrote this in 1972 (published in 1973!)
“It should ban federal employees from staying there.”
The only problem with that is they lease the building from the Fed. Gov as a concessionaire which is renewed on a frequent basis.
>>>This is the worst politics Ive ever seen. Who is running this guy?>>>
Think horns and pitchfork
Just a thought, but I wonder if Zero’s approval rate sinking to 37% had anything to do with backing down?
Personally, I think this was sort of a trial run.
However, that said, I think a lot of parkies (and I know some) are very devoted to the US and its people and honestly weren’t expecting anything like this and didn’t know how to react. I would also suspect that a lot of them didn’t think they were really going to be expected to enforce it and it was just for show.
Rangers always complain about being regarded as an enforcement arm, something that was not always true (although they had certain police powers) and actually developed more in recent years as there was more crime in parks. However, there is a separate United States Parks Police, which is armed and does most of the hard stuff and which is the one that appears in most of the recent photos of park closings, etc.
I notice that in some places Obama had to hire what was clearly contract labor to shut down the parks, so there may have been more resistance than we know about.
Also, this has rallied the States like nothing else, which is also something you don’t hear discussed.
When Obama did this, he wanted to punish average Americans, mostly Anglo whites but with a fair number of Hispanics and even some black Americans (judging by what I saw of the attendance this summer on a tour through various National Parks). He knew that anybody interested in this country and its history and even landscape would be no friend of his.
The MSM keeps referring to and comparing against the popularity of Congress. Ignore that because what you see there is a pure popularity contest and most members will be re-elected, so that score is meaningless. Obama, on the other hand needs an appearance of popularity to keep his Democrat allies in line and elect enough to take the House in 2014. At this rate, it looks like his battle plan is failing!
I weep bitter crocodile tears! (really, I do!)
You'll probably find Jarrett's controller somewhere in Chicago -- in the Chicago cell of domestic communists (William Ayers is a member in good standing).
Operations funded by radical Islamist sheikhs, which became necessary as the Soviet Union's funding started to wither and disappear thru the eighties.
As a consequence, the Chicago cell runs domestic policy while the Muslim Brotherhood calls the shots on foreign policy.
Just my best guess...
Two that I know of, Trumpka and Soros. Trumpka is in the whitehouse all the time.
Glenn Beck interviewed him last night. What a terrific guy. He stated 50 employees had no place to go and he has been feeding them and helping them out. Way to go Glenn for getting this story out. This restaurant owner said he was not affected so much and could weather the shutdown... but his employees could not. Small Business hero of the day.
