Posted on 10/04/2013 7:54:51 AM PDT by MeshugeMikey
Tuesday morning, seven National Park Service employees were seen erecting and tending to a barricade around the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. One NPS employee was operating a forklift. There usually aren't any NPS employees working at the World War II memorial.
A couple hours later, when an Honor Flight of World War II veterans arrived, accompanied by Democratic and Republican members of Congress, the fences blocking the memorial were easily moved away, allowing the veterans to enter.
But the barriers are still at the memorial, and they've been reinforced. This morning, I walked by the memorial and noticed that wires had been used to tie the fences together:

Paging Mark Levin, Paging Mark Levin.!!!
These idiots have sunk to new lows.
MISTER OBAMA, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!
One word: pliers!
OBayMe and his Regime are spitting in the eyes of We The People and all those who serve, past, present, and future. Include in that the families and widows. Harry Reid, Pelosi, Durbin, Schumer, RATs and RINOs alike, are showing us their arrogance and their personal quest for power at all costs.
Lets see what Levin says about this atrocity!
Obama doesn’t give a rats a$$ for freedom. He wants the vets to blame the Tea Party publicly and then he will let them in tp the WWII memorial.
Obama is a small minded tyrant, one of the kids elected to mind the store.He needs a severe spanking, in public.
Let the Kenyan escalate this. The lickspittle media won’t be able to spin this favorably and it WILL get attention.
Pliers can be used as a weapon and the shooting is justified.
Some bolt cutters handed to the Vets or their escorts could solve that.
Biden called the park ranger to say he was proud of her.”Im proud of you,” VP called to tell the Park Ranger who was chastised by a GOP Rep today at the WWII Memorial. Office of VP Biden (@VP) October 3, 2013V
Bangalore torpedoes like at Normandy should do the trick.
The National World War II Memorial was funded almost entirely by private contributions, as specified in Public Law 103-32. The campaign received more than $197 million in cash and pledges. Support came from hundreds of thousands of individual Americans, hundreds of corporations and foundations, veterans groups, dozens of civic, fraternal and professional organizations, states and one territory, and students in 1,200 schools across the country.
Donated and pledged funds were used to cover the total project costs of approximately $182 million. These costs include site selection and design, construction and sculpture, a National Park Service maintenance fee required by the Commemorative Works Act, groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies, fund raising, and the 11-year administrative costs of the project from its inception in 1993 through completion in 2004.
Remaining funds are held on deposit with the U.S. Treasury in a National WWII Memorial Trust Fund. The funds will be used by the American Battle Monuments Commission solely to benefit the World War II Memorial.
Mark is off the radio until next Tuesday, I think. :(
I’m sure he wants to.
I say wall up the white house and not allow even fresh air in. That will tell those pesky Republicans and those anarchrist tea partiers that they can’t hold the president hostage. I don’t care how much they try, they won’t be able to get into the airtight white house where obama,reid,pelosi and chuckky shumcker are standing guard /S
U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Tx., confronted a Park Ranger at the closed World War II Memorial Wednesday.
Imagine a group of WWII vets being arrested for trying to visit the memorial! Does President Obama really want that public relations nightmare on his hands? Let’s hope so!
