Obama & Co. have to organize protesters.
Steyn on the National Socialist Park Service:
The NPS has spent the last two weeks behaving as the paramilitary wing
of the DNC, expending more resources in trying to close down open-air,
unfenced areas than it would normally do in keeping them open. It began
with the war memorials on the National Mall — that’s to say, stone
monuments on pieces of grass under blue sky. It’s the equivalent of my
New Hampshire town government shutting down and deciding therefore to
ring the Civil War statue on the village common with yellow police tape
Armed rangers were posted at the doors, and, just in case one of the
wily Japanese or Aussies managed to outwit his captors by escaping
through one of the inn’s air ducts and down to the geyser, a fleet of
NPS SUVs showed up every hour and a half throughout the day, ten minutes
before Old Faithful was due to blow, to surround the geyser and
additionally ensure that any of America’s foreign visitors trying to
photograph the impressive natural phenomenon from a second-floor hotel
window would still wind up with a picture full of government officials.
The NPS have not yet fried anyone for taking King Barack’s deer, but it

Speaking abuses of power, the good thing is this piece of crap with a badge was arrested; now we'll see if the agency actually carries through or comes up with some dodge for him.
So let's see charges filed on Hagel. Or at the least- assuming any of the journalists in DC actually aspire to being reporters- some real hard questions being asked(I know, but I can dream).
The American Spectator has been provided with the text
of a political message sent on Saturday evening, using
Department of Defense communications systems, on behalf ofPresident Obama and Secretary of Defense Hagel.
It is addressed to “all US government employees” and further
specified by the DoD sender to go to “all subordinate commands,” in
compliance with Hagel’s call for “the widest possible
The message contains standard presidential lauding of public
service, but goes on to attack the current government shutdown by
specifically castigating the House of Representatives, saying that
the House — which is unsubtle code for Republicans — should
“follow the Senate’s lead…without trying to attach…partisan
measures in the process.”
