OBAMA'S BLOCKING OF WW2 VETS SEEKING ACCESS TO WAR MEMORIAL AND HARRY REID -- A SIGN OF THINGS TO COME

We are to believe that even though President Obama ordered park officers to block elderly World War II vets, many of whom are quite aged, into their 80s and 90s, and in wheelchairs and using walkers, from visiting a PUBLIC monument to THEM just to spite Republicans will NOT block these same elderly soldiers from access to healthcare.

Right.

WW2 VETERANS BREACH BARRIERS AT WW2 MEMORIAL IN WASHINGTON

Park Police Recalled to Defend Memorial From Veterans

Senator Rand Paul noted that Obama sent more officers to block these elderly soldiers than he sent to defend Americans under assault by terrorists (excuse me, by a YouTube) at Benghazi.

More personnel sent to WWII memorial than Benghazi; Park Service closes park it doesn't run

Then Obama stormed the beaches at Normandy, not to free France but to block visitors from paying their respects to the dead. After all, Americans, no -- the world!, MUST understand how horrible the Republicans are.

OBAMA CLOSES BEACHES AT NORMANDY CEMETERY AND MEMORIAL OVER SHUTDOWN

The current government shutdown is NOT over defunding of Obamacare, but how arbitrarily President Obama himself has been enacting the law. It is grossly unfair to some citizens (particularly small businesses) and quite generous to others (particularly unions). The Republicans are battling Obama into leveling the playing field so that all are treated equally under the law, but that's not how things are done in Obama's Chicago world of politics. And it appears now that Obama is not opposed to kicking a few old folks in the shin until the Republicans give in, after all, who put up the "barrycades"?  It wasn't Republican goons.

The WW2 memorial, among others, are PUBIC monuments and have not had access blocked to them in any of the past 17 government shutdowns, yet this "commander-in-chief" did EXACTLY that to these elderly soldiers -- that's the order that Obama gave.

Although President Obama claims that he can’t avoid shutting down public sites and monuments, war memorials were in fact kept open during the 1995/1996 government shutdowns. The administration’s decision to barricade the Lincoln Memorial marks the first time in its history the memorial has been totally off limits to visitors during a shutdown. --Obama's expensive, unprecedented monument and park closings

There has been considerable anger in reaction to this decision by President Obama. I know I am upset, and yes, angry, at his callousness towards these old folks.

Mark Levin: You lay one damn hand on a WWII vet, I’ll bring half a million people to DC

I actually believe his promise of half a million showing up to protest might be a little on the low side.

And we learned yesterday that Kathleen Sebelius is not the only Obama administration official to become a death panel of one when she told the parents of a 12-year-old girl who needed a lung transplant and were pleading with her to allow their daughter onto the adult rolls "No" because those are the rules." Sebelius was joined by Senate "leader" Harry Reid when asked by a reporter if he would at least agree to the House's offer to fund cancer treatments for children and he replied, "Why would we want to do that?"

Reid: Why Should Democrats 'Help 1 Child Who Has Cancer?'

Is this a sign of things to come from this President during his remaining three years in office? How will Obama use his healthcare law to punish citizens? What will he block access to until they "repent" or "cry uncle"? What will he deny to hurt them into submission? If he is leading his party to do these things to try and break the Republican party, what will he do to citizens who register as Republicans? or worse, who register as Tea Party members? If the IRS feels free to harass, annoy and stonewall their applications to organize and present their particular political views, will the IRS or this administration harass, annoy and stonewall on their healthcare needs until they give up their Tea Party or Republican ways? After all, if the government in general and the Obama administration in particular are calling the shots, won't there be a need for compliance on the issues that matters TO THEM the most?

Think not? Well . . . let's see where we are at in a year.

Yes, by President Obama blocking elderly soldiers from THEIR WW2 memorial and Harry Reid asking that one question, we are assured of the real purpose of the Obama agenda with this shutdown -- hurt who you must to obtain the power you want. Because BOTH actions are totally unnecessary.
