Extreme Hypocrisy! Obama Orders Federal Workers To “Make Life As Difficult For People As We Can”

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

Why would the president of the United States try to purposely hurt the American people? Well, in 2013 this is done in order to score political points and force the opposition in to doing what you want them to do. A few days ago, an angry Park Service ranger publicly admitted that he and his fellow rangers have been ordered to "make life as difficult for people as we can" during this government shutdown. That Park Service ranger would never have received such an order unless it came from the very top. 

Apparently the Obama administration plans to cause as much pain as possible until Obama gets everything that he is demanding. In many cases, it is actually going to cost far more money to put up barricades and use guards to keep Americans from visiting open air memorials, driving on roads, and fishing in bodies of water than it would to put up a "closed" sign and simply go home. As you will see from the examples posted below, the Obama administration is being extremely spiteful and vindictive. And the level of hypocrisy that we are now witnessing is hard to fathom. For instance, the National Mall has been totally closed to the public, but the Obama administration is specifically reopening it for a massive pro-immigration rally that will benefit the Democrats politically. The abuse of power that is taking place is absolutely staggering, and the American people need to demand that those that are abusing it be held accountable when all of this is over.

The following are just a few examples of how Obama is using this shutdown to make life as difficult for people as possible...

#1 The Obama administration is doing all it can to keep Americans from even getting a glimpse of Mount Rushmore, but Barack Obama's chefs have been deemed "essential" and are still preparing his meals.

#2 Small businesses cannot get loans, but the exclusive gyms that are only for members of Congress have been deemed "essential" and remain open.

#3 The National Mall has been closed to the public, but it will be opened for a huge pro-immigration rally being held by Obama supporters.

#4 Last chance cancer treatments for children with cancer have been suspended, but the IRS continues to collect taxes from us.

#5 The NIH has stopped therapy dogs from visiting sick children, but Obama and Congress are still getting paid.

#6 The USDA website has been shut down, but Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move website is still operating.

#7 A runner has been fined $100 for jogging through Valley Forge National Historical Park, but the military golf course that Obama uses regularly is still open.

#8 The Obama administration has shut down the Grand Canyon, but the new two billion dollar NSA spy center is still spying on all of us.

#9 The federal government has forced an elderly couple out of their home on Lake Mead during this shutdown, but the operations of the Federal Reserve have not been affected at all.

#10 In South Carolina, the Obama administration is actually using Park Service rangers to keep people away from a privately-owned hotel.

#11 In Tennessee, the feds have totally shut down the Foothills Parkway, a major thoroughfare that runs through Blount County. At this point the feds are not even letting people visit the graves of their dead relatives.

#12 The Obama administration has actually removed all of the well pumps along a 184 mile trail that goes from Washington D.C. to Pittsburgh just so that anyone that decides to use the trail will not be able to get any water to drink.

#13 The Obama administration is actually attempting to close 1,100 square miles of ocean off of the coast of Florida. It is going to take a tremendous amount of time, money and energy to keep fishing boats out of that area.

#14 According to one news report, "Gestapo tactics" were used against one tour group made up mostly of senior citizens at Yellowstone National Park...
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. 
Vaillancourt was one of thousands of people who found themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown went into effect on Oct. 1. 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.
#15 Of course one of the most disturbing abuses of power is how the Obama administration is using barricades and guards to keep military veterans away from open air memorials such as the World War II Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial that are normally open to the public 24 hours a day.

It is beyond disgusting for Barack Obama to take these memorials hostage for political gain.

And a lot of military veterans have decided that they are not going to take this slap in the face. In fact, one group is organizing a "Million Veteran March on the Memorials" this weekend. You can find their Facebook page right here. According to their page, a mass protest is being planned for 9 AM this Sunday morning...
Join fellow Veterans at the war memorials in Washington DC on Sunday October 13th at 9 AM and at memorials across these United States.
And veterans will not be the only ones in D.C. this weekend. An organization known as "Truckers Ride for the Constitution" will also be there. You can find their Facebook page right here. The truckers are planning a three day strike and protest which will stretch from Friday to Sunday...
The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a national protest in support of our nation's truckers on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers! Truckers will lead the path to saving our country if every American rides with them!
Many truckers are even planning to take their trucks right into the heart of Washington D.C. itself.

It will certainly be interesting to see what happens.

Personally, I have never seen anything like what we are witnessing right now. The president of the United States is actually trying to purposely hurt the American people in order to put pressure on Congress. He isn't even being subtle about it.

Whether you are a Democrat, a Republican or an Independent, you have got to be absolutely disgusted by what Obama is doing. He is showing an astounding lack of respect for the American people.

It is one thing to play hardball with Congress. That is acceptable. It is quite another thing to spitefully abuse the American people in order to get what you want.

What Obama has done goes way over the line. If the American people are not outraged by this, what will it take to wake them up?

The really scary thing about this that our "government" is acting with blatant disregard for the best interest of the people they are supposed to represent and could care less that we understand this. Apparently, our "government" feels there's not a thing we can do about it so there's no need to go to the trouble of faking concern for Americans.

Remember a year or so ago when police used tasers to subdue and sometimes kill people who needed help? Now they just pull out a gun and shoot. Where did all the taser abuse stories go? We accepted the taser atrocities and now we have something worse.

Next week, whoever that usurper occupying the White House is, is going to ratchet things up to the next level by declaring martial law and then it really will be too late. It's probably too late now. And there's not a damned thing you can do about it.

we, the people are stronger than the government thinks we are. do they really believe they can heard us into the direction they want us to go. I dont think so. if they turn the taps off on the route you have taken then take your own water. check your local laws to see if there is something you can do to not pay an unfair fine, take your own dog or a friends dog to visit sick children....what WOULD THE GOVERNMENT DO if they couldnt get away with it. STAND UP PEOPLE and be counted, because you can make the difference even if you dont think you can.

And who are the whiny children who shut down the government in the first place? The Republicans!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: One can only speculate upon a group of men (globalists, banksters, bastards) sitting around over cognac in amazement that we have not yet rebelled. To whit; "What the f*&k do we have to do to get these lazy mutherf*&&^rs to take up arms? JFC! I guess out right executions are! We've already tried that!...." NEVER forget- the GOAL is to get us to rebel so they can implement martial law. - Michael T. Winter

Peoples realising that we dont need the govt, its THEY who need us.
and i agree with anonimous oct 10 6;22, they need us to rebel so they can justify further use of force, its what i call the kicking and screaming phase. they've gone too far to get back. and some of us understand that revolution can only bring us back to the same damn point we are now. we need to EVOLVE.

They are trying to anger and "piss off" you the people, they are a bully poking you with a stick, waiting for you to explode, and if you do, Martial law.

Don't give in to anger or hate, filter it alongside fear, only when your mind is clear of those destabilizing emotions, will you find out what to do.

Boehner ordered the exclusive gyms remain open. I can't say about the rest.However, although the author's blogs & newsletters often contain useful info, he seems to me , to
to perpetuate an anti-Obama theme in most of it. While I'm not an avid supporter of much of Obama's actions, one does need to be fair. It could be worse:we could have a Republican POTUS. Most of what's going on these days stems from Reagan & those after him.

REALLY?!?!?! "That Park Service ranger would never have received such an order unless it came from the very top"?!?! That's a pretty definitive statement Mr. Snyder. Got anything SUBSTANTIAL to back up that claim? The question is rhetorical because as we ALL KNOW, you do NOT have ONE SINGLE DOCUMENT to support such a claim. You're an idiot, Mr. Snyder and this article, though compelling on the surface, is FANTASY BULLSHIT!!!! Perhaps you should try some other profession! Perhaps, a cook! Maybe a Maintenance Technician!!!

this article is disgusting. congress was supposed to pass a budget, deadline Oct 1st... no budget = gov shutdown. who is really responsible?? republicans in the house! on top of that any increased suffering imposed on the american people is also disgusting. But i find it funny how this "park ranger", who is anonymous.. didnt say where the order came from, if indeed he/she even exists. this story is everywhere, no one has any real reporting. all the same BS with no way to prove it. your article is a fucking joke. you the writer are a joke.

Well lets see, this is a joke because we don't know the name of the Ranger.
( maybe they have a family and don't want to end up dead for revealing the truth, oh but that has never happened before, no one would ever do that!)

And it's a joke because we don't have the name of the higher official who gave this order. All these park rangers have turned rouge and are doing whatever they want, yeah that must be it. The government would never do anything against the people, like at WACO, or Ruby Ridge, and it was a magic bullet that could curve in mid air that killed Kennedy, and building seven fell from furniture fires.

The list goes on and on.

Actually... you're the joke.

Shut down Obama's golf course! Don't fund it ! And while we are at it, since he lives in a house on federal land and has shut people out of their houses because they need the federal roads to get to them. Quit funding the White House and make him find someplace else to live, like he did to these people! Quit funding the White House! Close Camp David! Throw the bum out!

Tell Harry Reid, on raising the debt ceiling, NO WAY! Kiss the American taxpayers butt because we are done contributing to his greedy fascist hand! Cut the Debt Ceiling! MAKE A BUDGET and Live within your budget, just like the rest of us have to do! No more money to the debt ceiling! LOWER the debt ceiling! Tell Obama his vacations have been CUT from the budget! Cut Funding to NSA! Cut funding to the Middle east terrorists, AQ and MB! Cut funding to the White House and decrease staff !
