Also reminds me of Tiananmen Square. The amazing thing is that all of us who thought they'd use the military to take over U.S. were wrong, they're using Federal agencies.

We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”"

Who gave the government the right to charge fees to use public land. I can see certain rules to preserve the land preventing misuse but fee to use what is ours?

I’ll take back since I realize that fees for activities would be justified to hire and service the parks.

Obama may stretch this out for the purpose of attacking and destroying his critics using the law. Violence would be counter to that purpose.

The Great Sedition Trial of 1944

Once again I say the Left is moving rapidly to initiate a Great Sedition Trial of 2014 that matches what FDR tried to do to opponents with the Great Sedition Trial of 1944. FDR started with small fry and planned to move up the chain of opposition.

FDR failed. Obama might succeed, the Establishment today is arguably aging 1960s New Left Marxist-Alinsky radical, campus psycho spoiled brats and their ideological issue. The Establishment in FDR's days were Americans who eventually stopped:

". . . one of the blackest marks on the record of American jurisprudence. In the legal world, none can recall a case where so many Americans were brought to trial for political persecution and were so arrogantly denied the rights [guaranteed] an American citizen under the Constitution.”

"War clouds" in East Europe and Asia plus turmoil here is exactly what Obama wants. Sedition has become opposing Obama in any manner just like FDR tried to do?

It reminded me of the systematic murder and starvation of small farmers and their families in the former Soviet Union by Communist Party agents.

In the former Soviet Union they were doing it to enforce collectivization and increase the power and control of the Communist Party.

In America they are supposedly doing it to save a tortoise.

If you want to read about the Communist murder and starvation of small farmers I would recommend Harvest of Sorrow by Robert Conquest.
