National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis takes “full responsibility” for the NPS closing memorials, parks and the sea to enforce the government shutdown. He admits that he presented “his decision” to enforce these closures to the White House. Supposing that what he says is accurate, the Obama White House knew that World War II veterans would be shut out of their memorial, but did nothing to stop it. The Obama White House knew that self-sufficient parks like the Claude Moore Colonial Farm in Virginia would be shut down, and privately managed parks on federal lands would be shut down, but did nothing to intervene. None of these sites were closed during previous shutdowns. The barricades actually cost more more money than simply allowing some sites to remain open.

He's a jerk, yes, and he ought to retire. However, Mengele tortured and "experimented" on live people, murdering many of them. It's this sort of outlandish hyperbole and exaggeration that makes the left think we're kooks. He's not Mengele, he doesn't even rise to the level of Mussolini. He's just a bureaucratic hack who's been in office too long.

That's a police state ladies and gentlemen. Using the threat of force to do things that are simply wrong. And the Dems call the GOP the Taliban. The Dem Party is destroying America, bit by bit.

These admissions should show the entire nation just how depraved and entrenched our so-called "journalists' are in their 'collective' ideology.....only when 'their' loved ones are sentenced to death by the death panels and rationing, only when 'their' special contacts fail to deliver critically needed procedures/treatments, only when 'their' influence wanes and they are lumped into serfdom along with the rest of us will they realize the folly of their ways....we need to remember 'them' as well, for 'they' are the main reason the modern communists and socialists are taking over our country. I fear that full armed insurrection may not be far away....I pray not.

Remember BENGHAZI!

States are foolish if they don't demand taking responsibility of the "national parks" after these jackboots have demonstrated their true character. These scumbags purposely tried to make ordinary, innocent Joes miserable.

If there is anybody that looks worse than politicians in these last sordid weeks, it's park rangers - bullies with a badge. They need to be taken down several notches and many of them looking for a new line of work.

Mr Jarvis should pay for the extra expenses out of his own pocket. Perhaps he could sell his house to pay for it

Actually, his real Mengele is Valerie Jarrett (but that is an entirely different topic).

He may not be a "Mengele" (bobbcat did but the name in quotes btw) but he's far worse than simply a jerk. And who cares what the left thinks, to the extent that they even do think.

Retire, after being tried for perjury (lying to congress is a crime). However, it is not just conservatives that are using outlandish hyperbole. Who is it again that said that Republicans are "terrorists" and therefore cannot be negotiated with?

He also said that the NPS "facilitated" the honor flights. Many of the Republican congressmen where there (and Jarvis was not) when this "facilitation" took place. In effect Jarvis is saying: Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes.

In this situation, I guess "NPS facilitated the honor flights" means "NPS didn't arrest the nice little old men and throw them all in jail." I'm not sure that's the kind of help America expects from our park rangers.

You know, I checked my dictionary, and can find no definition of "facilitate" that rationally corresponds to "didn't arrest". However, I also checked the definition of perjury, and that seems to fit real well.

And? Wanna bet the GOP does nothing about it? Presented with a smoking gun and a body, the GOP these days wouldn't be able to get so much as a parking ticket out of it, much less a conviction in court.
