Yep, there it is. Harry Reid can point his grotesque fingers at the GOP all he wants, but the order to close the World War II Memorial reportedly came straight from the executive branch.

The OMB, or Office of Management and Budget is part of the executive branch and reports directly to President Obama.

Confirmed: Those barricades are Barry-cades.

Not only did the order to keep World War II veterans away from their memorial come from the top, but Park Service employees have been “excepted” from the furlough to make it happen

Paging the lapdog media:

            Full time and part time so be aware.

            He has lied to us from day one,
            And even trying to get our guns.
            The Constitution means nothing to him,
            Along with Reid, Pelosi and Dick Dur-bin.

            The democrat party has ceased to exist,
            Full of Communists and social-ists.
            Take from the makers all they can,
            To give it to the losers of this once great land.

            Weaken America in numerous ways,
            Cutting the military day by day.
            Muslim by birth and still today,
            “The Messiah” Obama needs to go away.

            Obama’s corrupt as one can be,
            From the IRS, Benghazi and AP.
            Fast and Furious was number one,

        Can anyone tell us why there were never any “Clinton-cades” during the government shutdown during his term? Because as bad as Clinton was he did not go to the trouble to close off the DC monuments just for political purposes. Many of the monuments in DC are simply sidewalks that do not require much to keep them open.
        The employees at the Lincoln Memorial were not sent home during the Clinton shutdown, but Obama orders the monument sidewalks barricaded off in an effort to promote a sky is falling mentality among his low information followers and his fawning mainstream media supporters.
        Closing off the sidewalks around the World War II memorial shows just what a “poultry fecus” piece of garbage our present commander in chief is.

    • IMPEACH_BOBO

      You all had to know this was what this RAClST MUSLlM FLEEBAGGER was going to do because he has shown his true color ( pun intended ) almost right from the start !!! BOBO has nothing but disdain for our Military, it is in his actions, NOT IN HIS WORDS, he always talks a good game but doesn’t follow thru & no substance !!!!

      Look at Iran, he wants to have talks again, meanwhile Iran is enriching uranium to the 90% mark, all Iran needs is TIME !!! They already have all the materials they need like centrifuges, the uranium & sites buried in the bottom of mountains !!! Irans game is buying TIME & BOBO is giving it to them on a silver platter !!!! Then we will have a real problem on our hands if Iran succeeds in enriching uranium to the 90% mark, you can bet if Iran gets a nuke, THEY WILL USE IT !!!! The Iranian president is as important to the government over there in Iran as Jay Carney is to this CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION, the new Iran president is just a Figure Head & thats it, the Supreme Leader is the one in control in Iran since 1979 !!

      I say we start IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS today before this RAClST FOOL BOBO does anymore damage to this country then he has already done !!! This would also go for the rest of his CORRUPT MINIONS too, like Harry Greed, Nancy PeLOSER, Biden, etc. it is no wonder we are in the shape we are in right now !!!!!

        Actually, Lincoln started this whole thing. He kicked the original holes in the Constitution (see Executive Order #1). Jackson, Taft, Wilson, etc. were just following his lead and FDR followed them all. Every president after FDR–including Reagan–abused the power of the Presidency.

        • disqus_wR1SV3JXH7

          Actually this is the truth. Bad moves come from both sides of the isle. Lincoln suspended free press. Dispersed protesters with gun fire. Held citizens for years without charges. Took government control of industries. Once a precedent is set it is easier for the next leader to do it. That is why we should stand and rebel against the violations of our current leader. Because it opens the doors for greater violations by the next leader.

    This memorial was built without federal funding, and is maintained through a trust fund. US taxpayers don’t foot the bill for it on any level. It’s hard to see what right the federal gov’t has to close it — not that that matters, of course. #EmperorBarry

    Thats just Awful for President Obama Administration to do that to World War II Veterans. Many of the Veterans are in their 80s and 90s that traveled to see their War Memorial. There will be a special place in Hell for people that ordered the Barricades.

    Of course — the Mall is never closed, but this administration prepares barriers and signs ahead of time to keep out the people, because it wants us to suffer. It’s no different from shutting down White House tours after sequestration (and doing nothing else) just so rank and file Americans will suffer. This administration has all the subtlety of a plow horse, and the electorate had better be smart enough to see through it.

    • Damien_Son_of_Hussein

      It is different actually. The White House is taxpayer funded. The memorial is privately funded. It’s not even theirs to guard.

  • Mike A

    …This is very one sided, even the comments are one sided. I think people forgot to mention that ALL NATIONAL PARKS are closed, so yes that includes the WW2 Memorial because it’s under the same as a National Park.

    He is trying to disarm the American people while smuggling weapons to Mexican drug cartels and Al-Qaida in Libya and Syria.
    He forces our ally Mubarek to step down when the people rose up yet did nothing about Iran when their people rose up and were killed and arrested by the thousands.
    He gave military aid to Egypt when the Brotherhood was in power but then stopped it once they were taken out of power.

    The easiest way to understand this is to understand Obama. He is a community agitator, that’s ALL he is. Stirring things up is what he does, it’s ALL he does. Finding the solutions is someone else’s problem to him, always has been.

    This is a petty “make it hurt” gesture much like closing the White House tours for the Sequester. When a toddler doesn’t get their way, they scream, shout, and break their toys — sound familiar?

    He assumed that the veterans would act like Occupiers, and whine and scream for government to save them from the mean Republicans. He miscalculated, badly, and God willing, this will cost him, Reid, and Pelosi dearly at the ballot box.

    The Greatest Generation is not fooled by Barack Obama as so many younger voters were, nor are they in awe of or intimidated by him. Let’s hope this is merely the first pebble in a landslide …

    Of course the administration ordered the closures. For those of you who have a very limited memory; this is exactly what O’Bummer did during the Sequestration.

      Just like you do for yourself probably on a daily and necessary basis, true Conservatives want one simple thing: to just “spend less than we make”. A single individual or family simply cannot continue maxing out their credit card and then ask for a higher credit limit without an eventual financial collapse. The USA’s yearly debt-limit circus, Obamacare, and the rest of the bloated government credit-spending-frenzy can be condensed down to that one aforementioned age-old proverb. We all practice the tired-and-true adage nearly every day… i.e., gas station on the left at the corner of Main St. Maple St. is cheaper than gas station on the right, so we fill up the tank at the cheaper station. Grocery Store “A” has a sale, and Grocery Store “B” across the street does not, so we go the Grocery Store “A”. Most of us don’t wantonly throw money down the toilet if we don’t have to, because we know there is a limit to what we “make” vs. what we “spend”. It sounds simplistic, but the same principle is applicable to us as a nation.

      We are at nearly 17 trillion dollars in debt now, with no end in sight, and no realistic or sustainable debt payoff. No nation in history has survived such an overwhelming burden… they ALL have collapsed, and I don’t mean a temporary “depression”, I mean an entire collapse where inflation makes literally everything unaffordable. True Conservatives tend to look at tomorrow, see the likely outcome, and take steps to prevent it. Liberals tend to look at today, see how it can profit them personally, and take steps to continue the process, and the heck with everyone else. When I say “Conservatives”, I’m not referring to the entire GOP, as the majority of them have demonstrated that they are virtually indistinguishable from their Liberal colleagues.

      It’s just common sense, which unfortunately is really not “common” at all. The USA appears to be a freight train running headlong towards a cliff. Unfortunately, a large number of voters blindly elect the same old lunatics year after year, paving the way to our very probable and eventual demise as a nation.

  • Jeff

    Look on the bright side… Obama and Co. are just once again publicly demonstrating their true loyalties, their superficial nature, and their complete ineptitude. Hopefully, this latest stunt will have an impact on the 2014 elections.

    It’s long been a controversy on whether a Commander-in-Chief should have a military background… I more and more feel that it is necessary. Those in the military, especially those who have been in combat situations, have seen what the real world is like. Non-military academics who ingested, for years, theoretical, lecture-hall “just-so stories” have a hard time seeing the hard realities. The USA got where she was by military defense and intervention. Simple physical force is necessary to hold off opposing force, yet they cannot comprehend it or even respect it. It’s like they live in some sort of Walt Disney fantasy land, where animals speak English and respect each other, and everyone would be “good” if just given a chance.
    This latest fiasco of thumbing their nose at the very folks who gave them the freedom to immerse themselves in, spout off , and propagate nonsensical liberal regurgitation is a blatant example of how out of touch they really are.

          The energy across social media is at a high and the net is reverberating with comments. Something I think we should know about. Obama is no ordinary (seemingly harmless) President. This guy is on a mission. Hell, he was assigned a mission and can you guess what that mission is? He is well on his way to breaking the back of this country but he can be stopped. Stopped by Americans who have caught on to what he is doing (in spite of the continuous lies spewing forth from his mouth). We be in big trouble folks but we’ll be in bigger trouble if we do not stand solidly together to protect each other and this country we love. I just called Reid’s office and no one is answering (is that possible? LOL) but yet Speaker Boehner’s office (even though you can’t talk to a human being, is letting you voice your opinion(s). Let’s keep the House from falling down. They need to be reminded from us that they were elected to do THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. Harry Reid, Pelosi and Obama can all go to hell.

    If pundits, reporters and members of Congress had reported on the questions lurking behind Barack Obama’s fraudulent documentation, he would never have been allowed to usurp the office of the presidency, bankrupt the country and insult its most cherished heroes. Instead, “birthers” were ridiculed, insulted, defamed, and their lives threatened while the media said nothing. It is now obvious that this man is not an American regardless of where he was born, and that his intent for America was purely evil.

But, with most of the media pushing for his success at the expense of fair and balanced Journalism, there isn’t much that will stick.

    She meant to say “exempt”. Government employees are categorized as “exempt” or “Non-Exempt”. “Exempt” is paid.

    • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

      No, “excepted” is the correct government term. From OPM, “In the context of shutdown furloughs, the term ‘excepted’ is used to refer to employees who are funded through annual appropriations who are nonetheless excepted from the furlough because they are performing work that, by law, may continue to be performed during a lapse in appropriations. Excepted employees include employees who are performing emergency work involving the safety of human life or the protection of property or performing certain other types of excepted work. Agency legal counsels, working with senior agency managers, determine which employees are designated to be handling ‘excepted’ and ‘non-excepted’ functions.” http://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/pay-leave/furlough-guidance/#url=Shutdown-Furlough

      Also, “Employees are ‘exempt’ from furlough if they are not affected by a lapse in appropriations. This includes employees who are not funded by annually appropriated funds. Employees performing those functions will generally continue to be governed by the normal pay, leave, and other civil service rules.” They would be high-up, muckety-muck SES / political appointees.

      Under a shutdown furlough, it has nothing to do with “exempt employees” with respect to the Fair Labor Standards Act coverage (overtime pay, minimum wage, etc.).

      I don’t know about you, but I grew up as a default dopey Dem, a typical LIV. It was only because of the great articulate teachers on conservative talk radio in the 90’s that I was converted. And it didn’t happen overnight.

        To paraphrase another quote, this one from Churchill, if you’re under 30 and a conservative you have no heart and if your over 30 and a liberal you have no brain..I made my transformation during the Reagan Era. I also realized shortly after him that he was indeed a unique individual and politician. I became a registered libertarian in the early 90’s.

        There are those who will never see liberals for what they are. Those with “no brain”, those with an inflated sense of entitlement and those who simply wish to be taken care of. I thought about that when I made my comment.

        My hope is those who call themselves independents (mainly democrats who are afraid or ashamed to admit it) will see this man for what he is. A fake and a fraud with a god-complex and an unquenchable desire to stroke his own ego. ( This is an apt description of most of those in the democrat leadership as well)

        Republicans can win this fight but, they have to end their desire to be “liked”. They have to stop worrying about future elections and accept that the MSM and the hard core liberals will never like them and will always misrepresent their motives. They need to simply be respected and the best way to do that is to return to their core principles. Unfortunately the republican leadership sold out and abandoned them long ago. There is a new crop however, Cruz, Paul, Amash, Lee among others who have found those original principles and are attempting to revive them. But, they will have to defeat the old guard in order to re-establish those principles within the party. The old guard will not go quietly into the night, they will have to be driven out. It will be a battle but it’s a battle that needs to be fought. If they fight it correctly they will bring many new supporters with them including the “Reagan Democrats”. Many of them are still out there, they’re just looking for a leader.

        • nc ✓s & balances

    Hey tea baggers, the 10% of you that have jobs instead of welfare checks, go to work today for NO PAY. That is what you are asking them to do to open up stuff like this.

      Why don’t they just open them? No one is saying that we need to pay government workers to just stand around and look at people.

    This Obama is an evil vindictive miscreant

    uhm you do realize that’s because they control the budget, it doesn’t matter who’s in office, it will be called the white house official management and budget office even after Obama is gone. This thing is like reading that orders to close the McDonald’s bathrooms came down from McDonald’s CEO’s office of corporate budgeting or that the school buses were shut down by the county school budget board, people trying to blame anyone but Boehner and the teaparty republicans in this whole mess is simply sad honestly, put blame where blame do and don’t be part of the right wing pundit liar machine.

    When someone comes in and plants a bomb after the gates are thrown open, who will be at fault then? These days there has to be a guard even at the Social Security office.
