Veterans march on D.C.; barricade White House

Here’s news that isn’t being reported by the State Controlled Media.

vetsSuzanne Hamner reports for Freedom Outpost that yesterday, Oct. 13, 2013, military veterans descended upon Washington DC to visit the open air WWII  Memorial and the Iwo Jima memorial that were closed by Park Rangers last week, ostensibly because of the government shutdown.

Thousands of other Americans were also there to  support the veterans. They picked up the barricades the Obama regime had set up around the WWII Memorial to block citizens’ access, and piled them in stacks on the grassy areas of the park.

In order to insure the veterans were able to attend the rally, bobtail truckers and 4 wheel vehicles participating in the Trucker Ride for the Constitution drove through Washington DC to the WWII memorial in support, blowing their horns while crowds of bystanders cheered.

Another part of the convoy, led by General Earnest Lee, drove around the  beltway with approximately 10 miles deep of supporters, then headed into DC  along I-395.  Lee’s convoy drove right into downtown DC going about 10 mph and literally shutdown the access into DC.  While Lee broke off to go to another  choke point, other truckers stayed behind slowing to halt traffic in order to  make sure veterans and supporters captured the heart of the DC in peaceful defiance of Obama’s attempt to close the open air war memorials. Several police cars reportedly had lined up in a barricade of the street but allowed the truckers to proceed through in a single file. Several officers even saluted the truckers in support of their Ride For the Constitution.

vets3Hundreds of Americans, led by Will Gonzalez, marched from the WWII memorial to the White House, assisted by law enforcement. According to Will’s live report on Guerilla Media Network, the truckers’ horns  could be heard as the truckers passed the White House. When the group reached the gates of the front door of the White House, their loud protests directed at Obama could be heard on the live broadcast. Will  Gonzalez yelled, “Get the F*** Out, Obama,” then led the crowd in cheering over and over, “U-S-A! U-S-A!”

Police officers, without riot gear, were stationed around the White House, but remained calm and neutral.

vets6Patriots also reclaimed the Lincoln Memorial as one woman urged all Americans, “to do something now.”

Palin, Lee, Cruz

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, Senators Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) helped protestors to remove the barricades blocking the Lincoln Memorial.

Protestors then  carried the barricades from the Lincoln Memorial and the WWII Memorial to the White House and placed the barricades in front of the WH gates. This was when five police officers appeared in riot gear with face masks and stood in front of the barricades blocking the crowd. According to Will Gonzalez, the protesters were within 10 feet of the gates to the White House.

Police officers then became more aggressive and used the barricades to push people away from the White House gates. Gonzales reported that officers wearing blue helmets were using the most force to repel the group. Ten police on horseback appeared, but did not use force or engage the protesters.vets1

Can someone please explain to me why this administrtion/regime has gotten away with so much? I fear for my country. Every day more and more weak minded people fall into place. What can we do? It has gotten to the point where I can’t even watch the news, I used to love Fox news. Now people like Kristen Powers and Juan Williams make me so angry I feel I could kill. And that scares the crap out of me. I want my country back and I want it back in english

My respect for the vets and supporters for keeping a level head in a situation that was set up by the coward hiding behind the curtain in the oval office hoping they would lose their last bit of restraint. He just keeps pushing that aggravation button on the American Citizens. We do not have a leader in this country, instead we have an arrogant, self-centered brat in the house. He has no concern for the people for he has showed that over and over again. When a leader gives orders to make it as painful as possible instead of doing… Read more »

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for setting forth this important news, inasmuch as nothing is said about it even though it is so significant!

Time to arrest and prosecute the worthless Kenyan POS.

Wake up, stoopid sheeple, or watch your country roll over and die.

-And it’s on life support now.

Those are Washington DC city cops (the Democratic mayor’s boys) out front of the White House fence with the collapsible batons out ready to smack protestors then retreating when they found they’d be on YouTube. (Not the Park Police, Capitol Police or White House cops.) Looks like Hizzoner was trying to earn some money for his city from the Dems.

Thank you for getting out the news on this subject, Dr. Eowyn. I looked for FoxNews to cover this rally, but all I got was everything else. It’s Tuesday now, 2 days after the rally, and Fox and Friends is FINALLY covering the subject, but without the details you just related.

So now we see that most police are willing to remember they are Americans first, and the only cops who showed up looking for trouble were DC’s Metro cops. Looks like Obama’s real support is paper thin, and will fall like a house of cards if pushed hard enough.

The officers in the blue helmets–were they the Washington, DC city cops?
