    The US government has been shut down several times. What makes this shutdown different is that Barack Obama spent taxpayer dollars to erect barricades at national monuments to keep the American public out. He wants Americans to know who the boss is. Today several hundred Americans stormed the barricades at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

Investigators were hoping to question her about the vandalism on the Mall, including at the Lincoln Memorial, but a language barrier delayed the interrogation, Newsham said.

We were also privileged tonight to get to thank a member of the greatest generation for his service in WWII.

    Tomorrow's Restoring Honor rally at the Lincoln Memorial has the Democrats in a panic. They're afraid of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin exercising their right to free speech and their freedom of assembly. At the National Press Club, Walter Fauntroy falsely accused the Tea Party of having ties to the Ku Klux Klan. In the many years Fauntroy was Delegate for the District of Columbia, he was a member of Congressional Black Caucus, an organization that excludes people on the basis of race. Blind to his hypocrisy, he has falsely accused a political movement open to all races, the Tea...
