Even though isolated barricades with "closed" signs remained on the National Mall on Tuesday, the setup for the immigration reform rally said otherwise. A giant stage with lights and an "Immigration Reform Now" banner was set up in the center of the mall, along with three large portable screens. On one side of the mall, more than 100 porta potties were set up for protesters who will attend the rally today. As several groups of musicians performed sound checks, a lone National Park Service employee arrived to survey the scene, but referred me to the Park Service communications office and left when I asked her why she was called into work today. As the Washington Examiner reported Monday, rally organizers said that they would be allowed by the NPS to carry out their protest under their First Amendment rights.

Priest: Obama Admin. Denied Mass to Catholics

How about trying this one on for size? Here is the press release headline from Congressman Tim Huelskamp’s office this afternoon: Obama Administration Denies Mass to Catholics Apparently, a priest was denied access to a military chapel this weekend. Father Ray Leonard serves at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia but because of the government shutdown, he wasn’t allowed to go to celebrate Mass this past weekend. He is contracted by the Defense Department to meet the spiritual needs of Catholics, but not now. The chapel doors were locked and the sign said, “Shutdown: No Catholic service till further notice.”

These are wheezerdawg park rangers in "action"

"NEWBURYPORT Daily News — Pat Vaillancourt went on a trip last week that was intended to showcase some of America’s greatest treasures.

Instead, the Salisbury resident said she and others on her tour bus witnessed an ugly spectacle that made her embarrassed, angry and heartbroken for her country. For many hours her tour group, which included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard.

The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited English skills thought they were under arrest. When finally allowed to leave, the bus was not allowed to halt at all along the 2.5-hour trip out of the park, not even to stop at private bathrooms that were open along the route.

If those Park Rangers put as much effort into "rangering" as they are currently putting into putting up barricades and turning away citizens from PUBLIC PROPERTY the Parks would still be open.

This isn't about "law enforcement" and "services" and "management." This is ALL about Barry Obribery's need to make HIS Government shutdown as PAINFUL and OBVIOUS to his own citizens as possible, in order to avoid a delay of the Obamascam government health insurance industry takeover HE HIMSELF already delayed because of his Administration's incompetence and crony politics.

Pathetic, Demorats. Hey Harry "The War is Lost" Reid and your job-evading crew, PASS THE HOUSE BILLS, FUND THE GOVERNMENT, DELAY THE ALREADY-FAILING OBAMASCAM MESS, AND END THIS PHONY SHUTDOWN.

"When the gov. shuts down these services are severely disrupted, so the parks legally must be closed."

Are you suggesting there is a legal liabilty here?

If so, they must shutdown the Federal Highway system as well.

"How is that revolution going for you? Pick your uniforms yet?"

Do you really think it's beyond the federal government, on the orders of a childish president, just to be spiteful and inflict as much pain on the American people, to impose martial law? To force OUR employees, like the Park Rangers to turn on us, "We The People"? Just who's are they on? What side are you on!

For right now, the American people are losing the revolution.

And if you are an American citizen, this really should frighten you!

This Sunday, October 13, at 9:00 a.m., at the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., the Million Veteran March WILL remove the Obama regime’s ridiculous barricades and take back the monuments for the American People. Their motto? “Normandy was closed, too.”

The National Park Service is responsible for the management of the National Park System that includes national parks, monuments, recreation areas, preserves and historic sites. That means, among other things, that NPS personnel must be available to respond to illegal damage to parklands and resources and to serve and protect the visiting public. Park rangers and other employees must participate in search and rescue operations, law enforcement, firefighting, interpretation, campground maintenance, traffic control, maintenance of public use buildings, trails, emergency medical services, etc. They are also required to actively manage concession operations. When the gov. shuts down these services are severely disrupted, so the parks legally must be closed.

“Rushmore blockage stirs anger in S.D. - Blocking access to trails and programs at South Dakota’s most popular attraction was one thing, but state officials didn’t expect Congress’ budget stalemate to shut down a view of Mount Rushmore.

The National Park Service placed cones along highway viewing areas outside Mount Rushmore this week, barring visitors from pulling over and taking pictures of the famed monument. “

How {censored} PETTY and SMALL can OBAMA be?? Trying to block the VIEW of our natural Parks??

Trying to CLOSE the OCEAN?

Can you imagine a REAGAN or a CLINTON resorting to these CHILDISH PETTY ACTIONS?

Mr. President, TEAR DOWN YOUR BARRICADES!

Mike, this is your best shot at trying to create another "scandal"? Clearly, the President shut down these monuments to inconvenience Americans and thus score points? You need psychiatric care! Do you also hear voices? Perhaps a medical leave of absence is in order.

Here is the problem.

Teaparty assumes no responsibility for their actions but certainly wants to hold everyone else accountable for their actions.

"Clearly, President Barack Obama has issued orders intended to inconvenience - and perhaps harm - as many Americans as possible during the "shutdown." Doing so scores political points for him."

Clearly? You need glasses.

no investigation needed... you have already reported what is happening... it's a shake down of the public by the political party with the power to do so... trying to make the point that they are in control and no one else matters..
