It’s time to take the Federal Government and strip it, make it smaller and take away most of its power that the Constitution does not authorize.

We need to use the organized crime laws against the Chicago thugs.

Is this the same video of people being arrested after being told to leave at the 10pm closing time, something NYPD officers have been enforcing since the whole Occupy thing?

I nearly tweeted it out thinking that the closure of the memorial was due to the shutdown and not because of Occupy Wall Street. One of the protesters mentioned that all other war memorials continue to stay open. Was this video recorded during the shutdown?

This is exactly why our founders wrote into the Constitution that the president has to be a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.

I'm almost certain it is because the occupy thing was mentioned by one of the vets and said that all other war memorials in the nation are "still open".

Sounds like a pre-shutdown video to me.

May God damn the NYPD and the evil central socialist government, the state government and the corrupt city government of New York!

Rot in hell you usurpers of freedom!

Obama and his leftist asses who rule our once proud nation enjoy the day of reckoning.

So what happens when you get arrested by some park ranger or federal agent for simply crossing a blockade?

Where do they take you? For how long? Is there a fine?

The protest was by the communist front group Veterans for Peace to mark the anniversary of the Afghan war. Nothing to do with the shutdown.

That explains the John Kerry like rhetoric I heard though-out the video.

That is what Mark Levin is proposing in his book The Liberty Amendments.

This needs to go viral. There was an instagram pic the other night but the thread got pulled. Glad to see the video.

I don’t have sound on my computer so I couldn’t get any names of the VFP speakers. Does anyone know who they were?

VPF was formed essentially by remnants of Vietnam Veterans Against the War in Vietnam (VVAW) from its maoist-controlled 1980’s organization (controlled by the Revolutionary Communist Party, Barry Romo, David Cline, etc). and other leftist veterans and supporters.

The old VPF was formed as early as the 1950’s by the Communist Party USA to oppose US support for So. Korea during the Korean War, and was then revived in the late 1960’s and was led by CPUSA member/Chicago Peace Council, Chicago VPF member LeRoy Wolins (also National Mobe, New Mobe, PCPJ).

Wolins was a partner in Chicago with CPUSA member David S. Canter in the Soviet propaganda and publications import business. They refused to register as agents of a foreign power and closed the business before appearing at a HCUA hearing in 1965.

Canter was one of the two communist/sympathizer “mentors” of one David Axelrod, of the Chicago Tribune, before they hired him to publish their communist publication roughly entitled the Hyde-Park/Kenoak Tribune or something like that.

Canter reported had some contact with Barrack Obama, possibly during the mayorial campaign of leftist Harold Washington in Chicago in which Canter, Don Rose, and Axelrod had major roles. Obama possibly worked on that campaign but I have no documentation on it.

LeRoy Wolins was accredited as being the main “suggestor” for the creation of VVAW, based in part on his VFP organization.

These people and organizations are like a continuing communist/marxist circle-jerk.
