There may be some interesting activity in and around the Washington, D.C., cesspool this weekend: a planned trucker protest, the possible closure of the interstates around the capital city, a likely barricade burst-through and the scheduled Million Vet March on the Memorials.
Psychopathic, uncaring government functionaries operating under direct orders from the Barack Obama regime are evicting homeowners whose homes sit on Federal land. The evictions are reportedly made necessary by the theater-of-the-absurd “government shutdown.”
I have told you often that a tell-tale sign of a failing regime is increased controls over the people. Now look around. The regime’s failure is accelerating at breakneck speed and should be obvious to everyone.
The Barack Obama regime is proving to be the most arrogant, narcissistic, petty, malevolent, insidious, baleful, sinister and criminal regime in U.S. history. The regime’s use of the so-called government shutdown (which isn’t really) has exposed its sophistry and mendacity for all to see.
As part of the government shutdown, national parks and Federal buildings were closed down Tuesday. But the metal barricades that blocked access to the World War II Memorial proved of little consequence to a group of WWII veterans from Mississippi on an Honor Flight tour.

Yesterday, Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, despite warnings from 130 members of Congress and a vote of 53-46 in the Senate earlier this year to “uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”
Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Janet Yellen is said to be President Barack Obama’s top choice to replace Helicopter Ben Bernanke at the Federal Reserve. Progressives are said to be ecstatic, viewing Yellen as someone who will continue if not double down on Bernanke’s money printing policies. As usual, progressives are missing the point.
Gun barrels were still warm and smoking and blood was still flowing from the bullet wounds inflicted by Aaron Alexis at the Washington Navy Yard when the gun grabbers began calling once again for a ban on scary-looking guns. One problem: No scary-looking AR-15 was used in the shooting.
Some people are having fun in New York and enjoying unique fine dining experiences. But they’re stepping off the main streets to do it, and they’re breaking the law. Underground supper clubs are proliferating. They offer a chance for small groups of people to gather in exclusive locations and eat meals prepared by professional chefs.
