forced out until shutdown ends

KTNV [Las Vegas], by Jacqui Heinrich

Las Vegas, NV -- The government shutdown is being felt close to home for some locals. They say they´re being forced out of private homes on Lake Mead because they sit on federal land. Joyce Spencer is 77-years-old and her husband Ralph is 80. They´ve been spending most of their time in the family ice cream store since going home isn´t an option. The Spencers never expected to be forced out of their Lake Mead home, which they´ve owned since the 70s, but on Thursday, a park ranger said they had 24 hours to get out. "I had to go

Mrs. Spencer had to go to town to buy her husband jeans and undershirts because "he forgot his pants".

The good news is that the National Park official who ordered residents out of their homes will get a promotion for "making the shutdown as difficult as possible for ordinary people"

This is about as perverse an interpretation of law that I can imagine.

This must be ignored or violated by ordinary people and challenged in court at the earliest opportunity.

Just clicked over to this story original article, and scrolled down a bit. There´s a photo of a sign saying ´´Congress, do your job and give us our national parks back.´´

Evidently there´s some sort of organized protest of Lake Mead boaters being planned. I didn´t bother with that story, because I wanted to address that sign first.

To the originator of that sign and the wording thereon: Check your premises. ´´Congress´´ IS doing its job - it´s doing EXACTLY its job.

Your professionally preprinted sign (gee, who does that? /s) needs to be redone, addressing your message to the person REALLY responsible for this - our D-in-C in DC.

When you knowingly put your home on land that does not belong to you, you are always at risk. The Parks Service is being harsh, unreasonable and maybe even acting in violation of the leases. But, the land doesn´t belong to the homeowners. What a sad situation.

It is a small matter, but I happened to notice that Navy played a football game against the Air Force Academy Saturday, yet the Coast Guard game against a private college team was cancelled. The rationale -
a perverted Administration, just as the action to force the people in the article out of their home. We are seeing the results of the election of a tyrant into office and his minions are, for the most part, senseless, in my opinion.

How very strange. The revolution is being lead by the Greatest generation and others in a similar age group. It isn´t by storming a beach, but simple civil disobedience. And it is a powerful reminder that the goobernment isn´t about serving those that consent but instead to oppress those that withdraw their consent. With jobs being non existent for the nation´s youth, one would think they would be leading the revolution. Instead, it seems that group just wants their participation trophy. The goobernment isn´t going to win this one as more and more people challenge the petty oppressions of the goobernment.

It´s going to start soon. Somewhere, a small group will unite to stand and fight against this tyranny - and probably die - in objecting to these acts of oppression and terrorism.

The government and its enslaved press will claim they are ´hoodlums´ or anarchists, or criminals in some way, but it will be obvious what they are fighting for and why they died, as proud, free Americans.

...And a new revolution, for better, or for worse, will begin.

There is a move underway, mostly in Western states where the Federal Government owns large tracts of land, to have the states take control over these lands within their contiguous borders. As these types of incidents prove beyond doubt, the Federal Government is the most inept, inconsiderate, and despicable stewards of any lands. Those in their employ are nothing more than robotic "brownshirts" who do the bidding of their higher ups for fear of retribution. This all looks vaguely familiar to anyone who knows anything about history in the 20th century. America could do quite well without the Department of Agriculture, the National Fish and Wildlife Service, The National Park Service, and the US Forest Service. Let the states where those resources lie take care of them and manage them.

What concerns me the most is it appears to me that the repubs go along with obama on this. If not why haven´t they formed a group and went to the WW2 memorial and breached the barricades challenging obama´s storm troopers to arrest them. If they did this all other sites would have to relent and let visitors in.

WHAT DO THE PALESTINIANS EXPECT TO BE IN THE FRAMEWORK? U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hasn´t presented a written proposal, but Abbas aides say they expect it to contain the following.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
