It would appear that Obama and his minions are gearing up for something truly unprecedented in American history, if the President wishes to persist in his madness at the WWII memorial which began 10/01/2013.
Obama's ordered actions of blocking access to the WWII memorial with barricades, and even adding seven security guards to keep people away, obviously flies in the face of the government's reason for closing the memorial down in the first place. You see, the memorial was closed down only because all non-essential personnel had been furloughed due to the government's spending impasse.
There is one major problem, however. You see, the memorial has never been manned with any personnel, and it is privately funded, to boot.
So, how is it that the government can somehow then post seven security guards to keep folks away from the open area park when the memorial was never manned by any security personnel in the first place? Obama has indeed tipped his handful of nothing but jokers, it would seem, but to what end? It started out, as previous and similar instances have, with Obama's political apparatchiks simply trying to make a point with so-called government funding limitations.
But what began as crude political manipulation has now become something much more insidious and for reasons that might escape most. Are the Democrats now becoming outwardly terrified because their access to outrageous funding has been short-circuited by Congress?
Glenn Beck has stated on his show that "Obama's nudges have now become shoves." Meanwhile, Mark Levin has threatened to bring over 500,000 people down on DC if any veteran is touched at the memorial.
Liberal Tom Hanks has even come out attacking the President's tactless tricks. When asked about the memorial with regard to the veterans in DC actually storming the barricades and taking them down, recently, he stated this:
"Good for the Veterans!" (Rut-Roh, watchout Tom, that's not allowed from Liberals, you know....)
Sarah Palin amply stated the following in a recent Facebook posting:
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.
The difference is obvious. There aren’t any World War I veterans alive today to mistreat in a shameful political stunt. He’s deployed more guards to bar our World War II heroes from their memorial than he sent to Benghazi when our consulate was under attack.
The President is treating our veterans the same way he treated school kids when he cancelled their White House tours. When times called for obvious government belt-tightening, he took it out on kids rather than look for anything that would affect him personally. ~Sarah Palin
So, what's the endgame to all of this? Obama is clearly terrified at being cut off from funding in addition to the Congressional mandate excusing private citizens from being forced into signing up for Obamacare as Obama has allowed for US business. However, if Obama were to, perhaps, sit down with Republicans and work through a slew of concessions, which they have already offered he might be able to easily end the stand-off and get the government funded again. Unfortunately, this is what he stated just this morning:
So, doesn't this mean that Obama might be considering at least some concessions? Or will the rhetoric of calling the opposition names like "Jihadists, terrorists and hostage takers" continue? Either way, while the media and the inner-beltway see the funding debacle as terrifyingly dreadful, most Americans and the Conservative Media are cheering the Republicans on, which might be good enough reason for the political Left to hesitate and wonder "why don't they love us anymore?"
Maybe it's because Obama continually plays his hand of only Jokers and the American people are finally beginning to see it. But then there are those other voices telling us that the true "Clear and Present Danger" that's now present within America resides solely within the heart of the inner beltway and to watch out.
Either way, we will probably see soon enough, or will it yet be a mixture of both Joker and unclear danger, as many of us suspect?
