Making Americans Pay: Obama Crusades to Punish America Over Shutdown While Blaming GOP

Shutdown It somehow seems like fitting symbolism that the Obama Administration has closed the Liberty Bell and the Statue of Liberty from the public due to the government shutdown. As the shutdown continues, the Obama Administration has begun a campaign to make the government shutdown as visible as possible to the American people to try and highlight the effects of the shutdown which Democrats consistently claim to be the result of Republican recalcitrance. On Tuesday, TPNN reported that World War II veterans who travelled to pay their respects at the National World War II Memorial in D.C were barred from the premises due to the government’s reaction to the shutdown. Thankfully, the veterans of the Greatest Generation pushed through the gates. Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill went to the WWII memorial and confronted the veterans groups that have assembled there to protest the closing of memorials to make a political point. Sen. McCaskill accused the Tea Party of “playing politics.” However, according to the National Park Service, they were ordered by the White House to barricade memorials. Tea Party Congressman Steve Stockman noted via twitter, “These memorials stay open at all times, even during holidays and government shutdown. Obama went out of his way to order them closed.” Obama has also declared that he intends to veto House spending bills that would restore funding for veteran benefits. It is painfully clear that the President, who has maintained that a shutdown would hurt Americans, is intending to make the government shutdown as noticeable and painful as possible to the American people. This is hardly a new maneuver as this same tactic was employed earlier this year, and continues today, in response to the Democrats’ disappointment with the sequestration cuts for which they had previously bargained to obtain an increase of the debt ceiling. When confronted with the stark reality that they would have to abide by their agreement to trim a measly 2.4% from expected spending growth, the Obama Administration went to work making these cuts as visible as possible while blaming Republicans. The President shuttered the White House, the people’s house, from visitors but still continues with lavish concerts, personal events and taxpayer-funded vacations for the entire family, including a $100 million tour of Africa for the extended Obama family. Internal emails amongst federal employees revealed in March that the Obama Administration had reminded federal employees to not evenly distribute their budgetary cuts, but to make cuts in places that will reaffirm their narrative that the sequester cuts would prove damaging to federal output. While maintaining that Republicans are being stubborn, President Obama has lashed out repeatedly at Republicans who refuse to cave under his and Democrats’ threats. While the President continues to try and make Americans suffer to bolster anti-Republican sentiment, his victimization of veterans might just be kicking a hornets nest of patriotism.

  1. Mr. Campbell does not go far enough in saying Obama is “punishing” America, veterans, etc. As Obama concurs with Moslem dictate (not enough people are courageous enough to admit that Obama IS a Muslim), he is doing what his Koran tells him to do. Kill or otherwise “punish” infidels. Is that not clear enough by now? What other “president” has done so much to destroy this country while giving a pass to muslim terrorists? Again, Obama’s Koran tells him he can lie or otherwise deceive in order to “punish” unbelievers. That’s exactly what he’s doing.

    1. Obammy hates this country to begin with. He is trying to make Americans bend knees to get his way. He is so desparate to be liked by all Americans that he not going to negotiate with anyone. He wants his power and he is loosing it. Look at the statistics. He is the most spoiled kid on the block. A bunch of lawyers ought to go through the courts and remove him from office. His obammycare is no good and look at all of the problems its causing. If he liked it so much then why did he cut deals with many people and companies to not be on it? He works for us and so does Congress. The house is working for us and not him. I hate him and his minions that are so smug. He is the most hated pres ever to hold this office. He has told everyone before this mess that he wasn’t going to do anything. He is an a–hole.

    2. mspatdev, I understand and sympathize with your views of Obama, but you give him too much credit. First, I don’t believe he is even eligible for office, so I refuse to acknowledge him as legally elected. I shudder whenever I hear him called “president”….it’s an insult to the legitimate American electoral process.

      Second, you allow that he wants to be “liked” by all Americans. I don’t think he gives a fig for Americans, much less wanting to be liked. As I said before, he’s a muslim that has penetrated our country with only one purpose, to bring the country down. All this window dressing about his incompetence or malfeasance is a smokescreen. He knows exactly what he’s doing and he’s succeeding because he’s supported by fellow liberals who really don’t care about the country. That includes racists who voted for him because like liberals they care only about themselves, not realizing that if America fails they’ve shot themselves in the foot.

      I agree that not only should he be removed from office, but it should not stop there. He should be prosecuted as an illegal alien and political terrorist enemy of the United States. That will never happen because liberals have succeeded in making political correctness and racism the rule in America, rather than the rule of constitutional law.

    3. I agree with what you have said, but you haven’t read very many of my postings. I do not like obammy and I don’t have respect for him. I did not mean to give any credit or anything to the dictator in the w/h. He does not deserve it. I do believe and it has been proven that he wasn’t born in the USA. He is not a legal resident of this Great Country. It also, shudders me when someone calls him pres. He is liked by the Far-Left and rag media, the people that gets his freebies, unions and many more. He is a liar, terrorist, cheater, destroyer, racist, he has commited so much fraud to all of us. He has changed our constitution, amendments and many laws. He hates us and our government he wants to destroy it. He is a Muslim, jihardist, socialist, communist, markist and many more things. He has changed OUR GOVERNMENT, COUNTRY SO MUCH. I know deep down that he knows exactly what he is and not doing. He is fighting hard to keep obammycare, even though it is no good.

    4. Wasn’t criticizing you, just expanding on your description of him by using irony in showing how people “give him credit” that does not fit, because in fact he does know what he’s doing…..not because of an accident or stupidity. He’s not stupid or even ignorant so believing he is is giving him too much credit.

      He’s like the character in the movie Manchurian Candidate, only in this real world he’s fully conscious of the conspiracy to assassinate this country instead of just a presidential candidate. I know people that really think he’s just that….a plant by foreign liberals and American traitors that was decades in the making. That’s partly why he’s so secret about his real identity and records that would expose him.

    5. He has spent millions of dollars to conceal his identity, but thankfully there were some people that found out about him when he was in Congress. I have read and studied about the dictator. I have tried to warn the people about him. When he met with Congress today (10-02-13), it was an opportunity for our “Dicator-in-Chief” to intensify his Chicago-style, beat down and intimidation of the GOP leaders.

    6. he should be taken out in hand cuffs and it should be treated as the biggest scam on the planet to date…how he got into office with a document that i was denied to get my license with is an outrage..you are right he is trying to take down our country

  3. Ya, I even saw a Gov Run Media article of an 8th grand class who couldn’t visit the Whitehouse because of the “R” shutdown – Didn’t they use that one with sequester?

    1. Yes…and obammy wanted the sequester. He shut down the w/h and now he brings in Muslim, socialist, communist, jihards and his favorite people the brotherhood to the w/h.

  4. Ya, I even saw a Gov Run Media article of an 8th grand class who couldn’t visit the Whitehouse because of the “R” shutdown – Didn’t they use that one with sequester?

  5. Republicans are willing to fund everything but Obamacare, but Dems say everything is the fault of the Republicans. I thought the House of Representatives had 100% control of the ‘purse strings’…? What part of the Constitution gives it to anyone else?

  6. This will comeback on the Democraps. I just watched Reid and Pelosi blather on about how strong Obama was and that there would be no negotiations and compromise. This is a Constitutional Republic not a Monarchy. Come on Mr. President put on your big boy undies, roll up your sleeves and start acting presidential instead of a spoiled brat. Everyday the American people are negotiating and compromising with each other. This is the way it’s done in the United States of America. We know what you’re doing. You can fool your base and the low information followers but “we the people” want all parties to meet and start negotiating and compromising and stop acting like a bully in the sandbox. Misbehaving has consequences….

    1. Amen, Amen….This is obammy’s and reid’s lock-out of the government. WE THE PEOPLE OF THE USA ARE THE BOSSES OF OBAMMY AND CONGRESS. The House was doing everything they could for the American people. Ya for them.

    2. He has no intentions of negotiations, He has gained so much power at this point and it will take the American people to remove him, other than some of the Tea Party members, its all smoke and mirrors. They have been at this objective for over a hundred years. He won the elections, not from the American people, but through fraud. Look at the poll results, you cannot have 146% 119% when we only have 100%. They knew Romney would win and over compensated the number of votes for the Muslim. We the people under the constitution can remove a sitting President, without the congress or senate, maybe the people can get a constitution attorney to help us and maybe we could have a partner with the NRA, maybe are last chance. The way I look at the country today, its better we take her back now, then WE THE PEOPLE end up in those FEMA camps which they are stead fast preparing. Do you know the Washington camp has a sign that reads family distribution relocation point, meaning they will separate the families all over the country. They do not want any power within the fence. I really wish the American people would read about Hitler, the biggest problem with the people was fear, look where the fear put them!!!!

  7. Well, a large portion of federal workers are union and unions helped elect this monkey. How do you like your pet now? Maybe next time you will vote smartly not for whom the union tells to vote for.

  8. Boehner, if he had a pair of nerve endings would prepare articles of impeachment against this jerk! I know it would not get the light of day in the Senate but passage by the House would forever convict Obama of crimes against the constitution (17 powers only!) and over reach of his authority. 2014 would be a cakewalk for the Republi-crats by reviving the disillusioned conservatives off their couches. There are laws already in place that limit Oblamer’s authority, it would of course be a party line vote and let’s see the MSM counter his defiance of established laws. That makes them anarchists and collaborators.

    1. We need a petition signed by the American people that gives our government a set period of time to get the Government affairs back in line or the American people will. We elected them we can impeach them.

  9. Obama, you are a traitor to America!! Go back to Kenya and read your Koran and get out of our lives. Signed, WE THE PEOPLE!

  10. The only thing Obama gets to “order” is pizza. He is Our public servant, and only a king in his own imagination.

    Funny how those nicely published shutdown signs were already prepared.,. and how much did that cost?

  11. The Liberty Bell, Statue of Liberty, World War II Memorial, National Parks, etc. belong to American citizens, not some dictator in the WH. He has no right to shut us out of what belongs to us.

  12. defund obamacare period. and impeach this big jerk this is no way to treat our man and woman who our serving in our armed services.and our vets either. get our national treasures back open and forests also.

    1. The national treasures are owned by the government. The government took them from states. They can’t even take care of the forests. Look at all of the fires the last couple of years, especially in the West, because the government hasn’t taken care of our forests. The spoiled person in the w/h and muslim minions can drop dead.

  13. Forget about impeachment, prison or sending it back to Kenya; a necktie party is the best this creep deserves.

  14. This man is evil personified. He has no compassion, no humanity, no concern for this country and it’s people. His only concern is for himself and his agenda which is so foreign to our heritage and our God-given rights. To “punish” WWII veterans who are dying off left and right, to deny access to the People’s house, is unconscionable and must not be tolerated. We must stand in defiance against him and his minions who are all destroying us. Let us stand firm with these precious, elderly vets and push back hard against this evil before it’s too late. Yes, it will probably get ugly, but any necessary revolution is never a walk in the park. May we stand strong, united and take our country back.

  15. Liberty is officially shut down. Let the punishment begin.

    In the words of King George III: “A traitor is everyone who does not agree with me.”

    We elected a Tyrant, not a President.

    1. a: an absolute ruler unrestrained by law or constitution
    b: a usurper of sovereignty

    2. a: a ruler who exercises absolute power oppressively or brutally
    b: one resembling an oppressive ruler in the harsh use of authority or power

  16. I knew who this imposter was before he was elected the FIRST time. How is it that so many could not read the signs. “BY THEIR FRUIT, YE SHALL KNOW THEM”. This guy NEVER did ANY GOOD in his past and hung out with SOCIALISTS and ANARCHISTS. There has never been an interest or desire to do any GOOD towards America or her people by this Anti-Christ. His sole purpose is to destroy America and the world economy. There is no “care” in Obamacare. There is no exceptional ism in America, and no desire to make America Great again, hence no oil drilling, How do we go about running this dictator out on a rail when they make up the rules to suit them as they go along all the while we are stuck obeying the law? They have planned long and well for this time in history, and we and fiddle farted all along thinking “oh, they really want to do good, they really are not that anti-American… they really didn’t mean what they said” REALLY? Come on PEOPLE…WAKE UP! THESE PEOPLE ARE DOING SATAN’S BIDDING. THIS IS nothing more than GOOD VS EVIL… and if we compromise with evil…WE LOOSE!

    1. AMEN ! Our country says over 80% believe in CHRIST, I sit and I think, then how did he get voted in the first time, I know the 2nd time was fraud but how did a person that states he believes in CHRIST ever vote for the devil, you begin to see how many people will fall for the devil himself as I could feel and see the evil within the Muslim, you cannot have JESUS CHRIST and EVIL in the same sentence.

    2. Did you HEAR some of the latest news? Obama has a new way of weeding out top U.S. Military Brass with a single question; If given the order, will you fire upon U.S. citizens? Those who say “no” are being let go and replaced by those who say “yes”. This may explain the top military leaders being let go within the last week or two. (can read about it on Teaparty.org) And still… we deal with this anti-Christ like he was an ordinary president who is only a little off in his thinking. In the 50′s, this imposter would be in Prison after being found guilty on at least 200 federal charges against the U.S. and her people. It is PAST time we start to shoot straight and not be afraid to call him all that he is (not enough room to list)

  17. zerobama HAS iterated to cohorts that he wants America to SUFFER! Statements have been made about coal and petroleum usage having their prices raised astronomically! He said it also about the sequester process when he began it! I’m sure that, with the government shut-down, he intends to REALLY make us hurt! Meanwhile, HE takes MORE multi-million dollar vacations!

    Meanwhile, when NOT on them, he KEEPS TWO CHEFS in the White House on salary! HE’S not going to suffer!

  18. Reaction to Obama’s negative treatment of veterans may become severe for him and the Democrats.

  20. To put salt in the already raw wound what about the video that schools are playing to our children promoting pledging “to serve Obama” if you havenot heard o seen this video look it up it is over 4 min long and every single person in the video needs to get hit over the head with a biography on Hitler…

  23. Well Obama is succeeding in destroying the country wether he gets everything he wants or not. Pathetic.

  24. I have never seen a more disgusting person in my life. The community organized is without a doubt as evil as they come.

  25. Why haven’t they impeached him? I would say that this defiant move by Obama, makes it clear that he needs to go NOW

  26. Obama and the democratic party are the ones who should be punished. They should all be brought up on charges of treason, tried, found guilty and executed. Wake up America, wake up, this administration is literally bringing you down by design every day. Wake up, wake up !

  27. Obama by being childish and not thinking things through will be his undoing but the real danger is this is the guy representing us to other countries friendly and also very dangerous enemies…i feel his naivete is a liability to us as a nation. and his behavior and impeachable offensive attitude of not telling the truth even when it doesn’t hurt him as a dangerous precedent…since when is lying virtuous?

  29. Really, wow. Where is the outrage for the WIC program being defunded? The idiocracy from the right never ceases to amaze me. Staving babies no big deal, can’t see a monument fir a couple of days Armageddon. This shut down is 100% republicans fault, I wish Obama would really man up and shut everything down. Let people see the republicans true color, self serving villans.

    1. Its time you start paying your way, This welfare program is turning our young people into drug addicts and worthless, you need to wake up! A person with no meaning and no purpose ruins them! They pop out children from everyone that comes along and it means more money, either you work for the evil one or you are just plain stupid !!
