The Feds Make Up Fake Laws In Order To Harass Taxpayers

By Greg L | 4 October 2013 | National Politics, Crime, Prince William County | 15 Comments

With the shutdown of the federal government comes the closure of Manassas Battlefield National Park.  You’d expect from this that the doors would be locked at the visitor’s center, that gates might be closed, and that there wouldn’t be any park service employees at the park.  On that last point though, you’d be wrong.  They on the job, busily making up laws to cite while putting tickets on the cars of anyone they think may be on the grounds and citing laws that don’t exist as justification.

This “warning notice” was placed on the car of a local resident who parked on the road, and did in fact go for a hike on the trails inside the park.  Here’s the caption they provided about this photo on a facebook post I saw this afternoon:

Went hiking at the Battlefields this morning but they were all blocked off because of the government shutdown so we parked on the side of the road. Came back to this on our car so I guess someone is still working.

What is particularly interesting about this ticket is the notation describing the law or regulation that was apparently violated. This is a spot where a law enforcement officer, or in this case a park ranger, would cite a specific law or regulation. “Closure violation” is not codified in federal law, nor is there a park service regulation entitled “closure violation.” This is entirely made up. Not only are there federal employees apparently not subject to the shutdown that could be allowing visitors to enjoy this monument to American lives lost in the bloodiest chapter in American history, but they’re busy making up laws to harass the public with instead of actually serving the public.

Federal employees making materially false representations or statements could quite reasonably be considered in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001, which is a felony violation punishable by up to five years in prison.  Making up laws and “warning” the public that they are in violation of these laws or regulations that don’t exist, which most certainly is an intentional and willful act is unlawful behavior.  This administration is so dedicated to finding new and creative ways to intentionally deliver pain on the American people in hopes that causes some kind of political advantage for them that they’re demanding that federal employees commit felonies to make it happen.  That is, by the way, is unlawful as well.

But for this administration, the law is what everyone else is subject to.

    Ok, this is simple. The Obama’s strategy for the shutdown is easy. Read Saul D. Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. See numbers 5 (why he says what he does about the GOP), 6 (Dems could care less about shutting people out of parks; they love this shutdown), 8 & 10 (why they won’t negotiate), 11 (why they have enlisted the left-wing media in this), 13 (what they ALWAYS do and we are not smart enough on the right to CALL TEHM OUT).

    1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
    2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”
    3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
    4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
    5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
    6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
    7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
    8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”
    9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
    10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
    11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”
    12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
    13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

    At the end of the day, Obama, like Alinsky is a community organizer. That’s it. He doesn’t care about being a good President, it’s all about the mob.

    More and more every day it sounds to me that we are now living in a socialistic dictatorship country versus the republic that our forefathers sacrificed so much for. My question is, at what point do we collectively get mad enough that we actually do something about it?

    I’m sure the officer called the Oval Office and was advised closely and in detail by the President of the United States (although the latter probably took a few minutes to consult Mr. Alinsky’s book on this) on how to write this rather polite and charming citation.

    If, in a time of government disruption, this is what you’re worried about, I’d say that the anti-anxiety medication is working much better than advertised.

    And there is a another example of #5.

    Maybe they should re-number and make #7 the new #1.

    1. The concern of our grubbermint is that people who visit parks with no federal employees will realize that the employees are really not even needed, and they will question their existence.
    2. Our parks belong to We the People, not the Federal grubbermint. If the grubbermint is shut, then all Federal parks should be open by default (like when the Indians ruled).
    3. The closing of parks by the feds is purely vindictive.

    I think this is over the top…the Law Enforcement Ranger is doing his or her job and doing what they are told. Taking out frustrations on the front line staff is wrong…the only staff working there are LE rangers/officers. Want to visit the Park…call your elected official and tell him/her to end the shutdown. You can not leave these places open without staff…no security for the resource, no maintenance picking up trash and safety is put at risk. I hate its closed too, but until the morons in Congress work it out, this is just the way it is.

    So if a federal employee gets an illegal order they’re just supposed to go along with it, and there are no consequences?

    Hell, the armed forces don’t get this kind of pass. Why should other federal employees get to hide behind “they told me to do it” defense? It’s not like they don’t have the same or even greater authority to use deadly force on American soil.

    Anon 2202: What was the order and what was illegal about it? Is this the same issue as an illegal order in the military? What’s with the deadly force reference? The note attached to the post looked very polite and almost apologetic. Did the officer pin the note to the corpse of someone he had just shot dead for entering the Battlefield? What am I missing?

    Well in many parts of Nova, people fight over open parking spaces. They sometimes leave notes on cars warning that this is not long term parking and that they will be towed.
    In an unmarked parking spot, this tactic is highly questionable. It boils down to bullying others over precious parking spots. A smart person will move their car because usually after a note comes flat tires, keyed cars, windshield wipers bent etc.

    This park ranger almost falls into the category of bullying car owners without the law to even back them up.

    If you are going to leave a note, you better darn well be correct.

    On another interesting point. How closed will the mall be tomorrow when 1000.s of illegal immigrants show up for a protest on the mall. Our Veterans were thrown out, Will Obama throw out the illegals? I can’t wait to see how this plays out.

    Where will those 1,000’s on the mall find an open restroom?

    Doubt if the illegals will be visiting the WWII memorial or any other memorial. But, will their traitorous supporters like Schumer and Graham be there to advise and to protect them?

    Simple solution is for people to go to Parks with signs of protest against whatever they want to be against, i.e., 1st Amendment Exemption Rule; unless of course the 1st Amendment is only for non-US citizens.

    That was my simple solution, I’m not sure why it went anonymous. It would be fun to hold protest rallies against maybe something like Obamacare and have the Park Rangers have to take down the barricades.
