Sarah Palin Storms DC, Riot Police Show Up
The Shark Tank ^ | 10-13-2013 | JAVIER MANJARRES

Posted on 10/13/2013 9:45:42 AM PDT by Timber Rattler

Sunday’s rally at the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C., which was headlined by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has broken out in utter chaos, as both D.C. Metro and Park police attempted to shut down the event.

According to one of the Shark Tank’s correspondent on the ground, ‘Special K,’ two police cruiser blocked entrance into WWII memorial, in an effort to stop truckers from arriving from the highway.

Four marked Secret Service vehicles had arrived on the scene, joining dozens of law enforcement assets, who had already arrived, including a SWAT team dressing in full riot gear.

Prior to SWAT arriving, the crowd was chanting “move those cars, move those cars,” which was possibly the reason why riot control was called in.

Police blocked the road leading up to the WWII memorial from both directions, and had also detained, questioned, and subsequently released, a man dressed in full Muslim dress.

Sarah Palin, along with a few hundred of her closest friends, including Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, headed over to the Lincoln memorial, and busted down Obama’s barricades. Palin also engaged police, presumably to thank them for their service.

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:

We were proud to stand with thousands of America's vets and other patriotic Americans today in Washington, D.C. This morning, Todd and I met with Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, and they joined us and other Americans at the World War II Memorial and then at the Lincoln Memorial, where we were met by a SWAT team in full riot gear! Watching those who have fought to protect freedom prevented by barricades from visiting these memorials to freedom was truly heart wrenching. Seeing the unity of the American people as they joined together and rose up against this out of touch government was an inspiration. God bless our veterans, those who continue to serve, and their families.

I'll be posting an album of some photos from today. Below are the brief remarks I gave today:

We're here to show that the size of America's heart for our veterans is immeasurable! But look around – barricades to shut down our memorials? Is this how a Commander in Chief expresses his gratitude? This "shutdown" priority proves a shameful lack of respect. It reflects a person's lack of valor.

But, Vets, We the People have learned from you! We know America will only remain the "Home of the Free" so long as we are the "Home of the Brave!"

So, as we honor you, U.S. Military, know that our gratitude will not sleep! We will be brave! You were not timid, so we shall not be timid in calling out ANY who heart-wrenchingly would use you as pawns in a political game.

America's finest paid the price for our freedom today. Vets, you protected us from tyranny then. Rest now, it is OUR turn to protect against tyranny again.

Ronald Reagan said, "Some people live an entire lifetime wondering if they ever made a difference in the world." YOU, vets, need never ask that of yourselves. You made ALL the difference!

Our war memorials remind us of the cost to keep us free. YOU paid the price! Rest now! We will pick up the mantle. We won't let you down. We now take up the fight for freedom!

The “situation” got pretty tense at one point when the crowd demanded “remove those cars” and the vets wouldn’t back down.

I was at the WWII and Lincoln memorials this morning but missed seeing Palin and Lee. Darn!

The mainstream media is almost entirely in non-coverage mode over the air but Doocy posted something online showing barricade removal.

Jim Acosta of CNN has posted more on the protests outside the WH with the removed barricades dumped and police using them against protestors.

His posts have been reposted at the widely read breaking news.com page.

The online coverage is picking up but the on air coverage is non-existent when it comes to the barricades being torn down and taken to the White House.

The illegals were allowed in(And I still dont get why INS didnt come in and arrest and deport their asses) because the Dems are going to use them to get the votes needed in 2016..Dems see illegals as their meal ticket to ultimate power
