    During the government shutdown, the Obama Administration made it a priority to put up barricades at the World War II Memorial: preventing Veterans who had made a special trip to Washington, DC from visiting the Memorial. According to Sarah Palin, Sylvia Matthews Burwell (HHS nominee) was behind this. Then the Obama Administration took the stance that Illegal Immigrants should be allowed in the US. Any damage to property or crimes committed seemed seemed to make this administration turn the other way. Then the Bureau of Land Management decided that a rancher Clive Bunday, who has had cattle grazing on the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration says the government shutdown last fall resulted in nearly 8 million fewer visitors to national parks, costing the parks and surrounding communities an estimated $414 million in lost visitor spending. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said the shutdown was a striking reminder that national parks are a powerful economic engine for local economies across the country. The report released Monday said five states, including California and Arizona, lost more than $20 million during the 16-day shutdown.

    House Republicans on Wednesday assailed the National Park Service director for erecting barriers at national monuments during the government shutdown. They accused Jonathan Jarvis of violating federal law by putting up the barricades at 401 national monuments and parks with no apparent imminent threat. In a joint hearing Wednesday, the House Natural Resources, and Oversight and Government Reform committees met to review the actions of the Park Service since the government shutdown took effect Oct. 1. Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) charged the NPS with violating the Antideficiency Act in barring visitors from the parks during the shutdown. The law prohibits...

    A crowd of demonstrators converge upon U.S. government property closed to the public. The demonstrators know that they are prohibited from entering the property. Nonetheless, they push through the metal barricades, chanting, “Tear down these walls.” That incident occurred yesterday at the World War II Memorial on the National Mall. Not confining their protest to the World War II Memorial, some of the protesters then picked up the government’s metal barricades and carried them blocks away to the White House, where the barricades were deposited outside the gates. Television recorded police struggling to keep the protesters away from the White...

On October 1, the Obama administration closed the WWII memorial in DC, which was paid for with private funds to honor the country's most beloved veterans. One week later, the Administration allowed for an immigration reform rally to take place on the National Mall with hundreds of illegal immigrations in participation, just a few hundred feet away. The outrage caught national headlines and the National Park Service has since changed the wording on the signs around the memorial. Ride for the Constitution has sent their drivers...

That Park Service ranger would never have received such an order unless it came from the very top. Apparently the Obama administration plans to cause as...

That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots...

"I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration. You lay one damn hand on one of those World...

    These are deliberate attempts to inflict pain on the public wherever they can, including shutting down our White House, Our National Parks and Mount Vernon? This is beyond silly and those GOP hacks had better find some back bone. Someone needs to hold this A-hole accountable. He needs a very public humiliation.

    Governor Palin hit the current day’s shameful behavior from Barack Obama just as we’d expect her to.Via Facebook: My Call For Civil Disobedience Around The “Barrycades” It’s beyond shameful to see Barack Obama disrespect and mistreat our World War II veterans so blatantly. Obama’s political stunt to “shut down” their memorial by barricade is to elicit an angry response to generate bad publicity for people the president uses in his continual blame game. Don’t believe me? Look at the “barricade” at the World War I Memorial: Check out the barricade at the World War One memorial—> pic.twitter.com/lJEYjY3GtR— John McCormack (@McCormackJohn)...

    Mark Levin warned everyone on Capitol Hill that if they lay a hand on the WWII vets at the memorial to arrest them for visiting their own memorial, he’ll bring a half a million people to march on Washington.

    House Republicans are seizing the Obama administration’s decision to barricade the open-air World War II memorial in Washington as a potent political weapon in their shutdown showdown with the president. Majority Leader Eric Cantor led a group of GOP lawmakers in denouncing the decision from the Capitol steps, and House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa has launched an investigation into why the WWII memorial and other open-air monuments have been shut down.
