The police came and forced both Vietnam veterans and the general public to leave the Vietnam Veterans Memorial after veterans went through the barricades:

WEEKLY STANDARD – After one group of veterans went around the barricade, “the park ranger told them the wall was closed,” NBC’s Mark Seagraves reported. “Later another group of vets showed up and moved the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists. That’s when police came and moved everyone out.”

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is a black granite outdoor wall on which the names of the 58,272 service members who died or were unaccounted for during the Vietnam war are inscribed.

It takes more manpower and costs the government more money to close down an outdoor wall than to let people walk past it and pay their respects.

The Obama administration has been very selective in devoting resources to shutting down memorials.

Watch:

Here’s a tweet from Steve King on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial this morning, saying it is indeed open and the guard dogs are only for intimidation. GUARD DOGS?

    President Obama is showing an enormous amount of disrespect to our veterans. I think the dog may be the most intimidating of the lot and I sure hope it wouldn’t attack a veteran.

  • rjcylon

    In what universe does this possibly make the republicans look bad?

    Maybe they should keep it up then–I don’t want to give advice to Harry Reid and Obama.

      “…a petty, rotten POS…” Sentinel, you have just written his legacy.

        And now we can safely add, “The first President to ever kick veterans out of their memorials.” He’s a slimy piece of work.

    I like Gov. Palin’s “Barrycades” term. I guess we can start referring to these as also being “Barackaded”. #Barackaded

  • WInemaker54

    Vets will not give into a tyrannical leader such as Obama so
    easy. However, I do think Obama wants a
    conflict so he can impose his will on the nation.

    • Vincent Ardolino

      He needs an excuse to declare Marshal Law which is the lynchpin of a much bigger conflict (i.e. Civil War)

      • WInemaker54

        Agreed…

      Well said. Truth is a bigger threat than terrorists to this regime.

  • Stehekin912

    What I find disappointing is the police join in by enforcing this stupidity. So will they sic those dogs on the American People? Threatening with dogs people visiting monuments, memorials and parks that belong to the people? Guess so…

    • Laurel

      That’s what I was wondering.

    • Vincent Ardolino

      The Police are a subject of the Federal Empire and are not for the people. The Sheriffs and US military are for the people. DHS is a military AGAINST We the People.

    Patty Murray’s use of veterans slogan “no lone gets left behind” in her speech last night to explain why we need ObamaCare was equally as grotesque.

    • Stehekin912

      The odious Patty Murray is, indeed, grotesque.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/10/05/Feds-Try-to-Close-the-OCEAN-Because-of-Shutdown

    From the article – “Centuries ago, King Canute famously failed to command the ocean tide to stop. His display was actually a means to educate his subjects on the limits of royal power. Today, however, our President actually believes he has the power to control the oceans. “

    • Stehekin912

      So the rangers are now complicit too. Shame on every last one of them for standing with the tyrant.

  • rjcylon

    I really don’t understand the strategy here. Republicans and the military are one in the same in most voters’ minds. Republicans would never close a memorial to the military and every one knows it.

    They can’t arrest everyone……..stand your ground. These memorials belong to the PEOPLE and the veterans who fought and died for this country. These places DO NOT BELONG TO KING OBAMA!!!!! Stand your ground……let the light of truth shine. This may be a war fought and WON by the people…….don’t blink.

  • Michael Evans

    Obama, you may need to STOP, pull your head out of your rectum and REALIZE THIS. Barricades will NOT stop us, a socialist president will NOT stop us. We fought through the jungles what the hell do you think a barricade is going to stop.
    WE BUILT THIS, NOT your cowardly as$ and NOT the TAX PAYERS. This memorial is built entirely on donations and not government funded. HOW dare you to even contemplate such an ignorant move as to try and close an OPEN WALL.

    • AmericanDream12

      Talk talk talk…what are we doing huh??? Blogging. That’s what we do. he is testing us every single day and now he knows he can do what he wants. He enjoys it and give us the finger – every.single.day. and we blog more. Sleeping giant? Still deep asleep. The one who are not are doing nothing to stop this dictator. NOTHING!!! But blogging. We are so polite and we are so afraid to do something “unlawful” that the barricades are there to stay and fascism will get worse. Because he loves giving us the finger so much. That was the plan all along and he is succeeding probably way above his expectations. I am sure he would never have dream of such a gullible people. We passed the red line a long time ago.

      • Michael Evans

        I take it that Reading Comprehension was never a strong subject for you. READ AGAIN plus read articles about the WW ll vets. They ARE doing more than blogging, they ARE removing these BARRYcades and ignoring the brown shirts.
        It is called CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE. I guess you seem to feel the need for violent protests??? We are bringing our story to the American population by posting on these sites. People in ALL parts of this country are starting to stand up and call out this dictator on these criminal activities he is using against WE THE PEOPLE.

        • TexasPGRRider

    There is NO DOUBT in my mind that Obama WANTS trouble
    He WANTS to BLAME the TEA PARTY and “RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS”

    He is purposefully instigating the people to take action –

        You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

        Obama is also setting up a financial crisis, which he will blame on the “intransigent” Republicans in the House. Congress will become more impotent than ever and Obama, with the financial crisis excuse, will declare martial law and himself some type of dictator so he can presumably take control.

        He has warned us many times. All he needs now is a reason.

    Every law “enforcement” officer who says, “just followin’ orders” now needs to be confronted with this full throated question: “Tell us now officer… do you remember which of history’s butchers had his enforcers mouth the same lame response you just did?

    It may not change anything, but at least it may just cause America’s potential enforcers/murderers for the regime to pause and reflect that they run the risk of being on the wrong side of history… and possibly/ultimately on the wrong side of a noose.

  • crosspatch

    Obama is intentionally trying to force a confrontation between government and the people in order to create a civil crisis. He is going to push, and keep pushing, until people finally defy him, then he’s going to break out the millions of rounds of DHS ammunition and attempt to decimate his political opposition. Watch. The crime of defying a federal order, no matter how stupid, will be punished on the spot by federal law enforcement with death, just as they shot that woman in DC the other day for defying an order to stop. She wasn’t a physical threat to them, she was a psychological threat because she defied their order to stop. Our federal government is becoming bullies. What bothers me is how federal employees can keep doing this. This is deeply disturbing as a reflection of what sort of people we have working for our government.

    • crosspatch

      Obama is trying to create the conditions which will justify his persecution of his political opposition. He creates a crisis, people get angry, defy government orders, and now he has justification to take direct action against his political opposition.

      • Albert Glasgow

        He wants an excuse to declare martial law.

        • Gary Dickson

          And then declare himself dictator.

        • Michael Evans

          He will follow his Mentor, Adolf Hitler, and set fire to the House of Representatives and Senate Chambers then Blame, as he does so well, the Republicans, then label them as an terrorist organization and declare the Constitution null and void

    • Gary Dickson

      Spot on, crosspatch. What you’ve described is one of the foundational behaviours of a Leninist collectivist mob. “Confrontation between government and the people” is one of its primary tactics. That is the sort of people we have working for our government.

      The enemy then becomes those who try to defend liberty, to defend individual freedom.

      America is, right now, experiencing what happened in Russia during the Russian Revolution and in Germany from the night of Kristallnacht onwards and in China during Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

      (By the way, I see no difference between Obama’s “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” and Mao’s “Cultural Revolution.” The jackboot of Obama’s fundamental transformation will come very soon.)

      As the mob gains more control, freedoms and liberties are shattered and stomped under its boot. As Glenn Beck has said, collectivism always ends up with millions of people dead and he gave examples of that happening in Germany (Nazism), Russia (Leninism/Stalinism), China (Maoism), and Cambodia (Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge).

      The only way to stop this is by pleading with God to rescue America.

  • colliemum

    The only comment I want to make is that I am amazed how quietly people put up with this ridiculous, petulant harassment, the closing of their own monuments, for which they themselves have paid.

    You can think of the French Surrender Moneys what you like – but one thing is sure: the French would have been pulling those barricades down with their tractors, and piled tons of manure on the steps of the various office buildings by now. They’d have blockaded all motorways in and out of DC with trucks by now as well. They’ve done all of that and more before.

    Odd, isn’t it, that we Anglo-Saxons still respect ‘government’, even when they do such blatant acts against us, whereas the French are very quick to act, showing ‘government authority’ what they think of them.

          • Gary Dickson

            Since you’re a person of morals, that’s the position you’ll take. I take the same position. I will not lie, cheat, or hurt someone else to keep what I have. I would rather quit than do that.

            For other people, when their jobs or lives are on the line, morals go out the door.

            Remember Nazi Germany or Communist Russia or Communist China where millions of soldiers and employees did precisely what they were told to do because, not only were their jobs on the line, but their very lives.

            • Michael Evans

              I know all too well about what the citizens in NAZI Germany had to live under, as my mother was born there in 1936 and was able to enter the US after the war. I was often told of family who had been force to commit acts they never would have EXCEPT for them having a gun pointed at them and then ordered what to do. I also heard of many Family who DID refuse and were either shot on the spot or taken away to never be heard from again. From what I have been told, we had a very large family in Germany before Hitler but by 1946, there were only 7 people left from this family
              These are the people and their history that have given me such a strong defense in my own morals. YES I have left very well paying jobs over what I thought went against my beliefs.
              I have put my life on the line to protect my own moral belief system.
              BUT I do NOT and WILL NEVER claim to have been put to a test like my family endured and that you pointed out so well

                My Christian Armenian grandmother’s siblings – all of them – were ordered by Turkish Muslim soldiers to convert to Islam or have their heads removed from their shoulders.

                The soldiers carried out their orders.

                (By the grace of God, my grandmother was living on the western side of Turkey when those events happened in the eastern side of Turkey.)

                What you’ve described has happened millions of times over, especially in countries like the defunct Soviet Union and like Communist China and like Cambodia.

            Excellent… I think that’s what will happen in America:

            The Beginnings
            By Rudyard Kipling

            It was not part of their blood,
            It came to them very late
            With long arrears to make good,
            When the English began to hate.

            They were not easily moved,
            They were icy-willing to wait
            Till every count should be proved,
            Ere the English began to hate.

            Their voices were even and low,
            Their eyes were level and straight.
            There was neither sign nor show,
            When the English began to hate.

            It was not preached to the crowd,
            It was not taught by the State.
            No man spoke it aloud,
            When the English began to hate.

            It was not suddenly bred,
            It will not swiftly abate,
            Through the chill years ahead,
            When Time shall count from the date
            That the English began to hate.

        I just remembered one instance of civil disobedience here in the UK, quite a few years ago. Tony Blair and Gordon Brown were increasing the tax on petrol and diesel to such an extent that small truckers and farmers were going to be priced out of business.
        So one bunch o farmers blocked the entry to the big refineries – and the truckers were driving in a rolling slow-down along the motorways and through towns. Te police could do nothing about that rolling slow-down along the motorways, it was not illegal in any way.

        There was panic buying in the shops and supermarkets, petrol stations had no petrol to sell – government in huge panic, crisis sessions, and all the tax increases were scrapped.
        Took only a week …

        Can’t believe our American cousins cannot do something similar …

        • las1

          Yeah England is not know for that stuff much, but the farmers in France are always doing those kind of stunts. I think Americans will do it when the nation is really threatened… the start was the Million Hog March a few weeks back. The lefties otoh do it all the time… Occupy Everything being the best example.In france the farmers always cry wolf and happen to be the most pampered and protected subsidy supported moochers in the whole EU. In Canada, our farmers drove tractors on the the front lawn of the Parliament… but other than that they were pretty peaceful.

    Ok, let me get this straight . They are having park rangers and government employees barricade the Vietnam Memorial. Then Obama is having these gates manned by park ranger, police officers and K-9 police? In past shutdowns the outdoor parks were open but not one was there.They claim they have no money but they increase security? OK, right. Its amazing how they impose their tyranny. I would love to see a march organized to knock down the barricades. Obama is a punk.

      You know it is open and IT was the one the Tax payers had to foot the majority of the bill for. Vietnam Wall and WW ll memorials were built solely from PRIVATE funding and donations. NO TAX MONEY INVOLVED

      • OneThinDime

        It is also closed. There was no tax money for the WWII memorial or the Vietnam Memorial to build or maintain. Same goes for Mt. Vernon which has been privately owned and maintained for decades yet O closed it.

      I know it makes no difference, but the principle sure speaks volumes- dear leader has also closed Florida Bay and Biscayne Bay to charter boats and fishing.

  • wodiej

    Don’t understand why these memorials are disallowing visitors? Is there some cost of maintaining them related to the gov’t shutdown? Just a ploy by obama to force gop to cave imo.

    • Michael Evans

      Yes, but it is blowing up in his face. It was the Republicans who went out and helped these WW ll circumvent the intentions of the brown shirt Gestapo agents Oblameyou had put in place.
      The Republican Senators and Representatives drew the NAZI’s attention away from the BARRYcades while other Republican congress persons even MOVED these illegal BARRYcades to allow the WW ll Veterans to visit THEIR memorial that THEY paid for to be built.

    • kong1967

      No cost to keep them open. No staff. But it costs to shut them down in order to punish the vets and the public. Obama is retaliating, counting on the Republicans getting credit for this happening….forcing them to cave and give him what he wants.

    This kind of crap is beginning to get real personal to us vets. Democrats and Republicans alike. Those monuments are where the vets and/or their family members can go and honor their fallen brothers in arms, relatives, best friends, etc. They are not there for some half Kenyan, half American, temporary occupant of the White House to control.

      Obama is setting up this country and government. Once the fit hits the shan with the debt limit crisis, Obama will proclaim Congress as impotent and he’ll take over as a full-on dictator.

    The Derelict-in-Chief’s math skills (or lack thereof) on display again: the cost of implementing the barrycading of open monuments just for the sake of placating 0bams’s easily bruised ego outweighs any savings that could be attributed to shutting down the government.

        We need groups of unarmed people to peacefully challenge his takeover of national parks and monuments. That’s a start. And we have to make sure that he doesn’t get to choose – let the vets on, and the bikers not. Obama is all about division. We have to counter his divisive tactics EVERY time he tries to sneak them in.

    Obama aids al-Qaeda while conducting a War on Veterans and active duty. It’s like he WANTS a civil war.

    • warpmine

      Give it to him!

    • Gary Dickson

      Absolutely he does. Combined with the upcoming debt limit financial crisis, how do you think he’ll become America’s Augustus Caesar?

      He is a god, you know, and Augustus Caesar was considered a god. So we’re nearly there. It just takes another little “nudge”.

      Like Rahm Emanuel said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” What he didn’t continue saying was “… to gain even more power.”

      • wylrae

        “… think he’ll become America’s Augustus Caesar?” Nah, but maybe America’s Nero!

        • Gary Dickson

          Consider the following from the PBS.org web site on Augustus Caesar and think of Mr. Obama:

          A charm offensive
          To avoid [Julius] Caesar’s fate, Augustus charmed the Senate and the people by pretending to give up power. But a series of disasters panicked Romans. They became convinced that only he could save them and begged the Senate to vote him absolute ruler. Augustus agreed, but did so cleverly. He convinced Romans that he was ruling in the best traditions of the republic, but actually was an absolute ruler creating a dynasty. The Romans bought it.

          Sound familiar?

      LOL! Didn’t figure they’d turn responsible now. Even with Obama turning into King George III before everybody’s eyes.

  • kong1967

    I’m confused by Steve King’s tweet. If there are barricades and the police came and removed people, the memorial is obviously closed down. How can he say it’s open and follow up that the guard dogs are only for intimidation? Kinda says “stay out”, doesn’t it?

    • Smith Smith

      just timing issue, the tweet was when people moved the barricades and walked past…later more cops showed up and then that is when they removed everyone.

      • kong1967

        Ah, I see.

    • OneThinDime

      There needs to be a member of Congress there and then the public can visit what they own.

      • kong1967

        They need to fight back. They need to make it publicly known that Obama is shutting down sites that are not federally funded and are not effected by the shutdown. That Obama’s punishing the people out of spite. Otherwise the general public is going to believe that it’s not Obama’s doing, it’s Ted Cruz. I’m sick of the R’s taking the heat for things Democrats do.

        • OneThinDime

          The GOP are happy the public is distracted, I absolutely believe this is all intentional so the debt ceiling and amnesty are slid right on through.

              I’m not, Duckie. This is PURELY of the Democrats’ making and anyone trying to sell that “Republicans are just as bad” bullshit is working for the Democrats. If you are trying to push for not voting or voting third party, then that is as good as a vote for the Democrats and you know that. I’ll take a weak Republican over ANY flavor of Democrat any day of the week.

              • OneThinDime
              • kong1967

                I tend to agree with you, although the Republicans anger me quite often with their weak approaches that allow Dems to win all the time. I do not do like others and claim the GOP is just as bad as the DNC. They need to grow a pair, though, and so far they’ve held strong in the shutdown. Hopefully they stand firm.

              • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanDuckie

                I’m not pushing anything. I’m voicing my own opinion. As crappy as it may be most times, my opinion is that weak republicans have helped as much as the progressive left has to get us to this point. Very few are speaking out on anything, and those who are are being vilified by their “fellow” republicans and it’s a disgrace.
                People like Boehner, McCain, Graham and others spend as much time chewing up Cruz and Lee and a few than they do actually chewing up dems who are destroying this country. Obama has done more damage than any other in this nation’s history and there’s nothing but crickets from too many weak republicans.

          • kong1967

            That’s possible. But Ted Cruz isn’t part of that. He needs to lead the fight and inform the public (in his interviews) of the bullcrap that’s going on.

            • OneThinDime

              I don’t consider Cruz and Lee part of the GOP.

              • kong1967

                Exactly, which is why I said Cruz isn’t part of that. But they need to get the message out what Obama is doing instead of just letting it happen. The general public isn’t that smart to realize that Obama is shutting everything down that doesn’t even take federal money to operate.

                I haven’t even heard much of an argument other than we need to delay the bill because it’s not ready for prime time. Maybe they are disguising the fact that delaying could destroy the bill and don’t want the public to believe they are trying to destroy it, I don’t know. But it’s the only argument I hear. Nothing about what Obamacare is doing to destroy everything, or about Obama being a retaliatory prick punishing the public on purpose.

        • keyesforpres

          …and even if any of these open air memorials were federally funded, they still should be barricaded. It is costing more to block them off. Besides, federal money is OUR money anyway.

          • kong1967

            Exactly.

  • crosspatch

    Apparently these monuments don’t belong to the people, they belong to the government and the government only tolerates our soiling the places with our filthy presence as long we pay them to tolerate us. If we don’t fork over the cash, they apparently close the monuments and memorials off to us.

    • OneThinDime

      No they do not. The monuments were built with private funds and are maintained with private funds. Same goes for Mt. Vernon.

  • LiveFree

    This is pure Gestapo tactics. We have a concept of”public lands”. Now it has been transformed into the “Crown’s Land”. King Obama will tell you if and when you can use the public land. Here in Arizona they have closed the Grand Canyon. Can you believe it, the government has closed a hole in the ground! Only a stupid ass liberal would engage in such abuse of the public trust. It is time for the states to take control of these “public lands” within their borders. We have ceded way too much power to the federal government. Time is running out to do something about this abuse

    • carol snyder

      governor Brewer offered to have the state pay to keep the canyon open and the feds denied the request. From what I understand though the Indian tribe is keeping the west side open.

      • Kevin Emanuel

        I’m not surprised the west side is open. It’s a reservation and now it will only get busier. I was there in July. I had to get a second mortgage on my home to visit Canyon the way they charge for everything there.

        Way to go, Indians!!!

        To quote that “mabus” troll, “Bwahahahahhaha!”

        I am just waiting for Obama to try to shut down the Indian side. Makes me wonder if his “anti-Redskins-name” sweet-talk to the tribes had a more sinister motive.

    I went up the Blue Ridge Parkway today and tried to get onto the grounds of the Inn that has been forced to close. There were something like 6-8 Rangers there blocking the entrances. There was a very small group of protestors on the side of the road flying the Gadsden flag and other signs. I asked one ranger, female, if I could exercise my first amendment rights and enter the grounds. She said sure, just go park your car down the road. So, I did. I went back with my chair, snacks, and wine (well, I wanted a small nip as I just completed hiking Mount Pisgah and you have to experience the view and serenity of the Pisgah Inn’s yard to understand this) but when I tried to go in at another entrance they told me no I couldn’t. I said the female ranger farther down said I could and they said well I couldn’t . So, I walked down and the chief honcho ranger happened to be there so I explained what happened and the female ranger said she meant I could go stand by the protestors; that was apparently what they had designated “the free speech zone”. Well, that made me angry. The chief honcho ranger said that the inn grounds were federal land and that it was closed. They all were very pleasant and nice so I vented my political opinion and the head honcho said he’d heard both sides. So, I went back to my car and ran into a couple of the protestors who said they had walked down a path and gotten into the grounds. The employees were planning a barbecue (they can stay because they live in the dorms on the property..that’s their home; surprised they weren’t evicted). They also said they overheard the owner on the phone saying he needed to find an attorney to file an injunction, which by the way, the head honcho ranger had said to me something like, the owner will get a lawyer, wouldn’t you? Well, the owner is a bit slow; he should have done that on Friday. Anyway, I emailed him and suggested he contact the ACLJ, Jay Sekulo. So, that’s the situation here in NC…very sad.

            there’s an article that says this:

            ‘I’m hopeful that the manifest injustice and obvious malice of the memorial closings will be a clarifying moment for the American people. It’s not 1995 any longer, and we don’t have to depend on the mainstream media to tell the truth.

          • Galatiansch2vs20

      Hey one-thin!Great to see you here.It has been a while.

      • OneThinDime

        Hey T-Bird! I thought you’d be in DC raising heck with Tin Lizzie! Been missing my buds. I see the Admin is up to no good, still. I hear Levin and his call for patriots, wondering when he will summon us up to protect our Veterans.

    • Wolf Moon

      Obama knows this, too. He is going to try to separate the Vets from their supporters using his little Park Police. We have so join hands and say “Screw you, Obama! WE are the American People together.”

  • DHardy

    They need to group together and REFUSE to leave call their hand make them take this to the courts…I assure you that is the last thing they want..Plus if these cops are forced to arrest Vets for simply visiting their memorial than they are the Nazi and need to be called out for it…

  • DHardy

    Obama is testing his Minion and unfortunately they are just as lawless as Obama is…I am disgusted with our Public Sector Unions….I believe we will be fighting these guys they are Obama’s army of Nazis…

    • az

      And the Muslims, they will be hand in hand.

    • Wolf Moon

      I hear you. It’s clear why Obama has been spreading the guns among government workers. Look back to Nazi Germany. The professional military and law enforcement despised the man. But he worked to get power into the hands of thugs, to work around the people who had power before. Those are the people to watch out for. Minimal training, high loyalty, party ties. And race. The commies are using race here like crazy. We have to fight back smart. Black conservatives will give us a key advantage. Obama has surrounded himself with racial loyalists who will support him NO MATTER WHAT. People who can cut through Obama’s racial rhetoric and hypnotism can help us get through to win allies and get information.

      • TexasPGRRider

        I`ve been researchin` parallels in Hitler`s rise and our current situation for a few years… You are Spot ON here Wolf ! ! ! !

        • Wolf Moon

          Thank goodness I’ve found one more who gets it.

          My mother was in Hitler’s Germany – she taught me to be wary of exactly the kind of tactics we’re seeing now. There aren’t a lot of us seeing those parallels, so we have to educate as best we can. People will say “Oh, he’s a commie, not a Nazi, blah-blah-blah.”, and trolls will basically say the same thing, but with the intent to shut it down. They ignore the fact that left-wing fascism (Peronism) grows very nicely in this hemisphere.

          The truth is, every dictatorial personality is different – its own beast – but Obama seems to be like a Stalin who learned to read from Hitler’s playbook. So he is doubly dangerous. Far craftier than either one of them, because subverting the United States is a lot harder than Germany or Russia. But it CAN and WILL happen if we don’t stop it. That was the main lesson from my mother. Good people can be made to stand by and do nothing, while a few bad people can turn a nation into a psychotic state. We CANNOT shut up. Once the people shut up, it’s over. We can never stop speaking freely.

          Go tell ‘em, TexasPGRRider! Amen!

          • colliemum

            One other point needs to be made to illustrate what you said about Nazi Germany’s armed forces and the police.
            The German resistance started early, well before WWII, and it started amongst the Wehrmacht generals and officers. They kept on trying, and the one who was the driving force behind it all, someone not at all known thanks to communist propaganda, was Henning von Tresckow, who knew it was too late by 1944 – but said to Stauffenberg that the attentat had to be done, regardless, to show that there were Germans who had not succumbed.
            One of the resistance leaders was the president of the Berlin police.
            Therefore I agree – it is counter-productive to regard police and armed forces as ‘enemies’. Better to look for allies there as well.

          • TexasPGRRider

            Add the Fact b.o. has saturated his administration with the muzbrohood, and you have a combined force of ideology, methodology, and tactical subversion that has the potential to destroy the essence of our Freedoms and Rights our Founders have Established. Keep your Faith Strong, Wolf and Godspeed your search for Truth ! ! ! The Big Lift (1950) with Montgomery Clift & Paul Douglas was shot on location and is a re-enactment of the Berlin Airlift of 1948, and the entire movie can be viewed on Youtube. I Highly recommend everyone take time to enjoy this Inspirational account of history…Peace be With you

  • JoeTulsa

    Obama hates regular Americans!

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanDuckie

      He hates Patriotic Americans.

      • crosshr

        Obama hates everything that is of God. MsM covering potus back and his tracts is like Chris(tin:-) Mathews attempt drinking the Pacific Ocean ( not a vodka:-). My beloved Fox and BillyO on the other hand are the establishment mentality that challenges MsM in emptying same Pacific Ocean.

        No one can cover up anymore the damages that both parties created approved & enforced by the child-in-chief-in-empty-chair.They have both begun the expositions of the devil that incarnates, manifest through their words and deeds.

        I trust today we are all encouraged regardless whatever we are going thru and are facing, God is here to stay to the end, let’s not let Him leave. He is our Way (through), our Life(we live) and the Only Truth.He is all I need !!!!!

    My hubby was in a store tonight and got talking to this woman whose son and daughter are both in the Navy. She told him they hate Obama and he’s not liked at all in that branch of the military.

    • badbadlibs

      Nothing has changed since this video:

      • sjmom

        Thanks for this video because it really shows what the military thinks.

        • badbadlibs

          And don’t think o bammy and his rotten cohorts don’t know it and act accordingly. Think Seal Team Six and Benghazi for starters.

      • sjmom

        I’m posting this video on Facebook.

    • Wolf Moon

      I’m glad to hear that, ma’am. But get ready – there will come a time when Obama tries to purge the rank and file. We need good people in the military to tell us when he’s going to move against us. Please encourage such people to keep their heads down, and start playing smart.

      • sjmom

        I pray the Lord protects them and keeps them safe in His care.

    • Joe Marino

      Sjmom, I too have Good Friends in the Airforce (Special Services) and the Marines who say the same.. The majority of all branches of the Military are against obama.
      Can you blame them. obama thinks he can train our Men and women, in the Armed forces, by whipping them with a stick. Thinking they will fear him enough that they will obey his every wish…
      I think when he calls on them to defend him, obama will have an eye opening surprize.

      • sjmom

        Me too Joe.

  • welltempered2

    Are you starting to understand why Obama had the Dept. of Homeland Security get all those hollow point bullets?

    • Wolf Moon

      Yes. All making sense. We need to get those bullets on our side. And the best way to do that is to get LE on our side. Are you guys hearing me? Treat every LEO as if they were either open or secret Oath Keepers. OK? We need to shift the dividing line from where Obama and Jarrett and Holder are trying to create it.

      I can’t stand to hear that nasty voice of his, if he also stated that ins. premiums would go down by 2500.00 per year, that’s another bald face LIE.
      Mine will be going up from 3300.00 per year to 6600.00 per year.

      Yeah – Jarrett was itching for the “payback” against us to start now. But even if they cool it off, they will be back at us with the dogs and the hollow-points. Count on it.

  • lawngren

    They brought K9s!!!

    It’s choosing time, folks, if you’re able. If you’re not able, no problem. I’m not able myself. Just wait a very little while and they will come to us. Are you prepared to choose?

    These police officers have no right to call themselves Americans. I don’t want to hear “I was just following orders.” These officers deserve disrespect and dishonor and NO, I mean ZERO, assistance of any kind, ever again.

    Every officer on this department must now decide if he is an American or an obamanite. Those who remain on this department must be considered as guilty as the evil officers who committed this illegal outrage. We have no choice. We have to stop accepting excuses and stop giving respect where it is not due.

    • Wolf Moon

      Some officers need to stay in law enforcement to give us intel. Assume that we are going to have friends inside. Don’t alienate ANYBODY in law enforcement. Obama is going to try to separate them from the people. DO NOT LET HIM DO IT.

      We need to keep Obama from setting up the fight between us. The People and Law Enforcement are like two prisoners chained to each other. Together, we need to use the chains against the master, to free us all.

      • colliemum

        Very well said!

      • lawngren

        I agree with your position on a theoretical basis. But what is a citizen supposed to do when an officer attempts to arrest him under this regime? Submit because the officer MAY be “one of us”?

        How, with your approach, does one discern between an officer who is “on our side” and an infiltrator?

        For a healthy, street-tough young / early-middle-aged male, jail might not be an automatic death sentence. Such a man might be able to avoid homosexual assaults, homosexual gang assaults, savage beatings. MIGHT be able to. Even for that person, release / parole etc. is a highly unlikely expectation.

        Rightwingers, Christians, Libertarians, can expect harsh treatment at best.

        The “justice” system is in the hands of evil, anti-American entities. To submit to arrest is to give them another plaything / victim behind closed doors with restraints non-existent.

        Welcome to the New World Order.

    • Joe Marino

      I agree with you lawngren…Officers Do need to decide. Believe me when I say, obama has effectively divided the Law enforcement community as well as he has the American Public.
      Wolf Moon has a good point too.

      • lawngren

        Being offline most of the weekend, I just read and responded to Wolf Moon’s recommendation. I wish I could accept his solution. I am sure that even now there are patriotic, common-sense officers even in this department who hate what they are being used for. But they are being used, at least in this department.

        Officers, I know what a terrible choice you face. I DO understand. But if you are truly American, we need you; and the system, at least in this department, will force you either to submit or be crushed. I’ve seen it happen.

        There are sheriffs and probably chiefs of police who have joined Oathkeepers. Officers, if you are truly American and you want to remain in law enforcement, find one of these departments and join it.

        I repeat, the time has come to choose. Give us reason to trust you.You need us too, as Wolf Moon said.

      • lawngren

        And BTW, Joe, thanks for the encouragement. God be with you.

  • captbill

    How pathetic of our government to prevent people from paying respects to men who fell in battle in the service of our country. They are not going to deface the wall, just pay respects. This is the fault of the conservatives who want to deny Americans access to National Health Insurance. Shame on them.

    • keyesforpres

      Acess to National Health insurance??? You are aware that people are losing their insurance right and left because of ObamaNOcare? My mother can’t get a mammogram next year because of O-NO-care.
      I suggest you look up “Dr. Janda Obamacare”. Doctors won’t be able to help you if the death panel says no. If the doctor chooses to help you anyway, the doctor will be given a SIX FIGURE fine. The second time? They are going to throw the doctor in jail!! Approx. half of our doctors say they are going to quit because of O-NO-care.
      This issue is ACCESS to medical care. ObamaNOcare is going to limit that. You are aware that illegals won’t be forced to buy insurance and muslims are exempt. You do understand that you MUST buy insurance or be fined. You do know they will have direct access to your bank account??

      • Wolf Moon

        Obamacare is a disaster. Listen, Captain dude – *I* want healthcare, too. But not this BS. Something is terribly wrong here. VERY, very wrong.

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanDuckie

      Americans have access to healthcare already. What we don’t want or need is socialized health run by the government. The government cant even take care of many veterans, how do you expect them to take care of you and the rest of the country?
      Our Vets fought to keep socialism and communism out of America, people like you are welcoming it with open arms. What a disgrace.

    Don’t make the mistake of blaming Obama for something the Tea Party caused. Also, don’t make the mistake of calling the Vietnam War a fight for freedom and democracy. The regime in South Vietnam was totally corrupt. The regime in North Vietnam was Communist. Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Nixon chose to support the corrupt regime of the South and feed our always hungry Military-Industrial Complex, just as the Bush teams did. We don’t fight communism, we enrich our ecomomy. Iraq had no communists. Afghanistan had no communists in control. Syria has no communists in control. We need to keep the armament industry alive and functioning–it is larger than the auto industry and far more profitable.
    People who are denied access to National Parks and Monuments are being dumped on, just like the grunts in VN, Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere in the world. We need to face reality, not blow the same smoke our congress tries to shove up our behinds.

          I’m not so sure the government is really SHUTDOWN. Last week Roger Hedgecock mentioned a bill in the house that was passed to make sure those who work in government ,who are furloughed, would get payed when the furlough was over. So that means, there are 800,000 or so sitting around doing nothing waiting for their checks to roll in. Sounds like another entitlement program to me.

            Even a heavyweight champion will lose against a lightweight amateur if he has to fight with both his hands tied up standing on one leg.

            The restrictions placed upon the american military during the war prevented any meaningful victories against the NVA.

            • Dr. Strangelove

              Actually from a strictly tactical standpoint we kicked their butts. During the Tet Offensive we killed ten of them to every one of our servicemen who lost their lives. But rather than capitalize on the victory and crush the NVA and VC while he had the chance LBJ let them “go back to the bargaining table” which meant they could regroup and strengthen for the next attack.

    • kong1967

      Lol, the Tea Party? The only programs or sites that should be effected are ones where the funding was cut off from the shutdown. Obama is shutting down sites that take no federal funding whatsoever. One particular tourist site paid $500,000 for a ten year lease and operates without federal dollars. Not a penny. So…how does Obama justify shutting it down because of lack of funds?

      Obama is targeting the public in order to ratchet up the effects of the shutdown. It’s hateful and spiteful, and shows he doesn’t give a damn about our vets or our citizens, and you know it. Stop blaming the Tea Party.

    • Dr. Strangelove

      To paraphrase Truman, Diem may have been a son of a bitch but he was our son of a bitch. Same with the Shah of Iran and numerous other leaders of countries that don’t have a constitution like ours. When these leaders get “replaced” we end up with ones who are not allied with us. While we went about the Vietnam war the wrong way via LBJ’s cowardly micromanagement I think it was right to support them against communism. And just what did the Tea Party cause? We are the only ones standing up to the dictatorial takeover coming from the White House.

    • Betsey_Ross

      Actually it is because of Obama that the Tea Party exists. When Republicans should have been on the Captiol steps screaming bloody murder at Obama’s very first bill. Crickets. They thought voting against it was enough. Rick Santelli was the only one that did. And it just got worse. From taking over Chrysler and GM to Obamacare, to Amnesty, to Global Warming to Gun Control, to labor unions, ad nauseum, the Republicans never made a sound. WE are all being dumped on and the Tea Party is the only entity fighting it. This is Obama’s fault plain and simple. He is doing what he wants and no one is stopping him.

    • Jerry

      Are you saying it is the tea party fault for the hardship that is being put on our veterans? I do not want to be forced to have insurance that cost more and gives less then what I have! Obummer will not sign unless he gets his way. Who’s fault is this? The tea party? IT IS the DEMOCRATS and GOP FAULT why we are where we are today. Now is the time for we the people to put our foot down and tell them enough!!!!

      • factsobill

        How is it the GOP’s fault? Not one Republican voted for Obama Care! What Republican is responsible for the “shutdown”? Not one! Obama owns his tantrum against the people of the USA! What a tired juvenile piece of SH_T!

        • Duane Steckler

          MR. SH_T, respectfully, It is folks like you in denial to all that torments the US and world today, There is no party separation here. It is a criminal element that controls all the higher level of government in most all world governments as well. Power and money corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely, even you, even me. A society where wealth and power separate itself from the masses, it is what you get, this! You can put lipstick on a pig but in reality, you still have a pig. To be so pro party affiliated, is being controlled just the way they need it to continue this criminal activity. That’s all it is, criminals, and they need to be dealt with accordingly! Both parties, in fact all who are in government today playing the “game” are equally guilty, equally criminal!

          “ACA is a law” – this is the pathetic meme being pushed from the top-down to sock puppets such as yourself, as if this argument holds any water whatsoever. It is a bad law, and it is our right to elect representatives to stop funding a bad law.

    • Joe Marino

      Well captbill, I do agree Vietnam was not what the Gov’t told us it was. And, I agree we shouldnt have been there in the First Place.
      At the Time I enlisted into the Marines to go to Nam because I believed in my Gov’t and never thought the Gov’t would LIE to us.
      I later realized the Gov’t does nothing but LIE…So, I became more informed about my Gov’t.
      I don’t agree you have become informed as much as you should, hence your statement about the Tea Party…
      Have you ever known obama to admit Fault on himself. He is the Presidant (sadly enough) and he is the one trying to, “inflict as much pain, to the American Citizens, as possible.”
      You seem to know alot about History. Maybe, you can explain Fast and Furious, Bengazi, IRS and NSA ..

      • hefetone

        Maybe YOU can explain how a Republican congress who are keeping the government shut down is Obama’s fault. Start spinning.

        • beyond partisan

          Because the Republican congress has put forth bills to fund EVERYTHING but Obamacare. It’s the Democrats who are sticking their heels into the mud. They could have everything else funded but refuse to budge.

        • Joe Marino

          Well hefetone, If I were going to try and explain it, my explaination would be very similar to “beyond partian’s”.
          I would also add that obama, reid and most all democraps have said they, “will not negotiate with the Republicans” until they saw their polling numbers going down. Now they say, they will negotiate but only if the House passes funding for obamacare.
          Since the House gave them everything but obamacare funding, there really isn’t anymore to Negotiate.
          I realize obama care was passed, however, the Constitution (I believe it’s amendent 27 or 28) states, the Congress MUST hold themselves to any law passed by them. Obama’s NUMEROUS exemptions to his Cronies, contributers, Congress and Himself and his family, should be a CLUE how BAD this Law is.. and should “Null and Void” this bill.

    I don’t understand why the police would do this. Is their job that important, or do they agree with what obummer is doing to our vets?

      I am somewhat baffled by this also. Apparently the money is more important. They do have a job and many, many localities are losing parts of their small forces, too. There are 90 million unemployed so money is important.

    I’ve just about had it with local cops and local governments treating our soldiers like CRAP! These fat a$$, doughnut eating, can’t run a quarter mile without having a coronary, gun-happy mama’s boys are crossing legal lines, and someone needs to put them and their departments back in their place.

    I come from a family of cops, but I’ve had it with cops in general. Departments are over-run with these “shoot first, ask questions later” doughnut rangers.

    My fellow soldiers are not giving their lives on foreign battlefields so that some gun-happy mall cop can put him in an early grave. Soldiers are bigger heroes than these glorified security guards will EVER BE!

    I’m sorry, but I’ve been reading some things this morning that have just set me off.

    One is something I was reading regarding the soon-to-be-released movie based on ex-Navy SEAL, Marcus Luttrell’s account of the events surrounding “Operation Redwing” called “Lone Survivor”. Some of the liberal comments demeaning these brave HEROES made me want to jump through the screen!

    The second was the story of a soldier who had just ETS’d and was out with friends celebrating when a car full of BLACK POS jumped out and threatened he and his group. One of them randomly just stabbed the soldier who laid there and died from the wound! The news agencies conveniently and COWARDLY FAILED to mention the COLOR of the worms in the car. You only find that out by reading further down the comments section! Where were all of these want-to-be DOUGHNUT RANGERS when that soldier was lying on the pavement bleeding to death???

    Police: Soldier fatally stabbed; may be hate crime
    http://www.komonews.com/news/local/Joint-Base-Lewis-McChord-soldier-stabbed-to-death-226597871.html?tab=video&c=y

    “MAY BE” A HATE CRIME???? NO! It was a BLACK ON WHITE HATE CRIME! SAY it you WORMS!

    I know I should chill, and the Lord tells me I should love my enemies, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to utterly kick them in the face sometimes.

On which he has violated the law eighteen or nineteen times.
          And as usual for libtards, you did not attemp to answer why he is ordering places that are not under federal oversite to be closed. Such as a state owned pull off area near MT. Rushmore. Are you going to actually answer my question, or are you just going to follow the playbook ??

    Have to wonder what our dear leader is up to. Everytime he tries to get something shady by he compounds what’s going on and declares or creates a crises. So while we’re focusing on the memorials being shut down, he’s quietly passing something else. Wonder what it is this time.
    As far as the shutdown it’s funny we have no money for the memorials to stay open, but he and Congress still get their paychecks. Someone commented on 800,000 government employees being furloughed, but what services were shut down, because everthing seems to be working. Unnecessary workers? Just like the sequestratiion when we didn’t have money for White House tours, but he and all his family could jet off on vacations wherever they wanted.

  • beyond partisan

    It is costing the taxpayers more money to police these memorials than it would be to just leave them open as they are normally, without supervision. This is soft martial law. Obama is flexing his muscles here. I am glad to see people standing up to this soft tyranny. Shame on the police and park service for going along with this kabuki theater.

  • Bob Finlay

    So what we are saying is that the veterans who SWORE to uphold the CONSTITUTION are upset at the president, the commander in chief, for doing what the REPUBLICAN obstructionists are instructing the executive branch to do? SHUT DOWN THE GUMMINT. Why are they not upset with the REPUBLICANS? or the TEA-BABIES?

      No Bob, what we are saying is, YOUR commandant, who swore to uphold the Constitution, has spit on the American people, that means YOU, to further his goal of transforming our beautiful Country into something unrecognizable. So, if takes shutting down the “gummint” as you so eloquently put it, SO BE IT!! And DON’T MESS WITH OUR VETERANS!! They’ve more than earned the right to visit their memorial and they don’t need the permission of YOUR (p)Resident Evil to do it!

      Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my
      Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United
      States.”

      From Article 2 section 3 of the Constitution regarding the tyrant Obama.

      he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed,

      He has violated article 2 Section 3 many times on Odumbocare and will do the same on any amnesty laws.

      The tyrant will also do the same thing on any gun control laws.

      He thinks he has the power to rewrite any law and he needs to be stopped by taking the unconstitutional ACA to the courts. Only Congress can legally change the laws

      Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit.
      No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no
      understanding of how the economy works ,NO UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THE CONSTITUTION WORKS, no military experience, no understanding of how the
      world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of
      real substance.

      AND HE DID SWEAR TO UPHOLD OUR CONSTITUTION, TWICE. ON CAMERA TOO!

      He has no real identity. He is half-white,
      which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides, but
      is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and
      middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people
      in Kenya. Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo
      grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively. in otherwords, OBAMA IS NOT AFRICAN AMERICAN OR BLACK.

      ANOTHER TYPICAL LAZY MORONIC LIBERAL SPOUTING OFF HIS OPINIONS, INSTEAD OF FINDING THE FACTS….because the research will kill ya with the TRUTH!

      • Joe Marino

        I recieved this discription of obama I think is worth injecting into this conversation.
        The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

        He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides, but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya. Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

        What he isn’t, not a genetic drop of, is “African-American,” the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn’t a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

        Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves; he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

        It’s something Hillary doesn’t understand – how some complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from her. Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.

        Thus Obama has become the white liberals’ Christ, offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, and no arguments Hillary could make of any kind can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him: Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

        Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior.

        He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.

    Why didn’t the BORG Queen, Nero Obama, simply turn the firehoses on those veterans and their families and friends and simply all those who wished to pay their respects for people who actually had courage to fight evil, unlike Nero Obama who doesn’t fight evil because he is evil.
    Other democrats have resorted to firehoses in years gone by to get rid of people they don’t like. The BORG Queen, Nero Obama, would just be following a Democrat Party tradition by spraying the veterans with water hoses and then sicking the dogs on them after they breached his BARACKades.

    I know that the Bush 41 and 43 have honored the tradition of not bad-mouthing a sitting president (unlike others we know). And I know 41 has had some problems with ill health. But it bothers me that, as a WWII vet he hasn’t at least released a statement on how wrong this is. I wish they both would, but especially those such as Bush 41 and others like Bob Dole, etc. McCain should be ashamed of himself.

    • MODIDDLEY

      Direct your anger at Obama, and especially at Sen. McCain for showing his ignorance doing this fiasco. McCain is a POW and we have not heard one word from him on this subject. Obama is not a veteran and never served, and draft dodger Bill Clinton showed how ignorant he was in getting out of serving. Bushes served our country proudly and I suspect they do not want to say anything to our supposedly president. And “Yes”, I am a veteran and proudly served and I have no use what so ever for Obama, and I am starting to feel the same way towards McCain.

    Fortunately the Pastor mentioned a curious thing to hear these days: We still live in a great country.

        I wonder where the “native americans” came from and who they killed
        off tp take over this land. Seems like history says there was continuous land between russia and this country many centuries ago
        which allowed the “native americans” to populate this land….

      • Robbie Rob

        First off, there are enough illegals coming into the country which come to find refuge because many are criminals in their own countries.

        The reason there are LEGAL aliens (and ILLEGAL aliens) is there is supposed to be a control of how many are let in every single year – afterall, it doesn’t take much common sense to surmise there are only so many resources to go around for all of us. More people in this country means less for all of us. The aliens coming LEGALLY into this country get background checks and follow a process to do it. You think it’s ok for criminals to come here with no checks ? For Illegals to drive drunk and with no lisc to drive to endanger people who have the legal right to drive?

        YOU try and go to another country ILLEGALLY ( and without a passport ) and see how fast you end up in deep doo dooo ! See how fast you get arrested for driving in another country without a driver lisc !

        Lets start by feeding the US citizens that are living homeless and hungry right here in our own country before we try and feed the world, huh?

    I take no sides. but blame both party’s for this shutdown. If Obama care otherwise known to the informed as the Affordable care Act is law then why fight the inevitable? And if there are parts to the act to negotiate instead of blindly moving forward then why not negotiate. politician’s get paid great money for doing nothing and many feel they are above the laws. So, at this time are they any better than the illegals or welfare people?

    also lets not forget the billions of dollars spent during Bush Jr. on the 10 plus years war and the lessons not learned from Russia vs Afghanistan war. I was in the first Desert Storm war and congress (Repubs and Dems) shut George Sr. down and we had to leave without Sadam and I was a couple of clicks away. Now everyone blames the Dems for our Country’s problem’s we face? Please look at how many times the debt ceiling was raised under George Jr. and compare the two presidents. As I say if you didn’t want the mess why make it in the first place!

    • philliphowel

      Your facetious and untrue history lesson ignore the issue: there is no reason to shut down an open mall that has nothing that can be stolen. Shutting down requires more storm troopers than leaving it open. Are you capable of seeing the actions of this man? It is not “how many times the debt ceiling was raised” but the amount of the debt that has been run up by Obama. Try to understand truth.
