The "Million Vet March" in Washington D.C. appears to be escalating as reports of barricades being torn down, police in riot gear and snipers being deployed, and a growing crowd at The White House chanting for its shut-down suggest the people are growing restless.


Veterans take back the Vietnam Memorial


Via Epoch Times,

Protesters have gathered in front of the White House in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, according to reports.



Park police in riot gear were deployed in front of the building.


“US Park Police have arrived in front of WH. Some in riot gear! Tea party/veteran protesters start booing,” wrote CNN’s Jim Acosta on Twitter.


A rally took place at the World War II memorial and headed to the White House, reported NBC Washington. Several thousand demonstrators came out, it said.


NBC reported that people were carrying barricades that were likely from the WWII memorial to the White House area.


The DC Police Department said its officers are on the scene.


“MPD is on the scene at White House with USSS & USPP concerning protest – marchers using sidewalk,” it wrote on Twitter.


Commentator Sarah Palin and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) were on the scene and spoke to demonstrators.


The organizers of the protest described themselves as the “Million Vet March.”


It said that veterans and military members are “being used a political pawns in the ongoing government shutdown and budget crisis,” its website reads.


Jeff Tompkins, a protester, told NBC that  “it should be open to everyone to come down here and see this … this is not just and not fair,” referring to the WWII memorial.

Snipers at the ready atop the White House as the crowds gather...

Now, the protest continues outside of the White House.

How many vets does it take to piss off a praetorian sniper?

Go Vets!!! Tell the traitors in DC they will not get away with this hypocricy!  I tell you people, this thing is coming that will make a man pause...prepare accordingly.  Things are coming to a head it seems, as I've said for many years, all I see is trouble under every rock I turn over.

The ride has been fun my friends, stay thirsty!

If a sniper gets an itchy trigger we'll finally see the revolution we've talked about.

Mohammed Morsi is sitting under house arrest watching this on TV right now.  He's probably jumping up and down on his couch screaming "See!  SEE!  SEE!!  How do you like it now Mister Big Smarty Pants American President?"

This is nothing, just an appetizer. Just wait for the Food Stamps crowd to show up once there is no money for the free meal.

Abi Normal's picture

Doh, that is what I fear the MOST, then there is the DHS...which could be worse?  Methinks both are as bad as the other...prepare accordingly.

So, the DOGS OF WAR declare WAR against their own veterans, huh?

I have in fact been to D.C., and it reeks of garbage and decay. The high and profuse smell of rotting human effluence permeates every corner now; the stench of the deals and the insider trades of blood for money now stains this cesspool in a rotting, festering stench that rises to the Heavens!

The FEAR you speak of, 'ABI', is that of a man who is not prepared to face what is coming, if good people do nothing in the face of the evil that 'you' see 'surely overwhelmes' you.

While you hide in your caves, and cower in your Maginot-Line-type 'bunkers' with your Chinese-made genarators and your 'freeze-dried' foods, the GREATEST GENERATION is there in the rain and cold, still fighting to give you pussies the FREEDOM that was promised.




FUCK ALL the agencies that take our FREEDOM FROM US!

Well, if you want to FUCK, you need a hard cock to carry it out, not a limp dicked 'response'.

I, for one, spent the morning cleaning my weapons, my blinds open, and spent yesterday out on the target range, honing my skills.

SURE, I'm scared. Who in their right mind WOULDN'T BE?

Like Gerald Celente is famous for stating, "When you've got nothing, you've got nothing to lose."

I feel a song coming over me:

DIG YOUR BUNKERS! YEAH, that will help...

Abi Normal's picture

I believe Celente said:

"If man loses everything, and has nothing to lose, he loses it".

I dig no bunker, I will live or die a man standing on his own two feet, not living bent on one knee.  I am in your camp, yet you do not see it.  I hide in no cave, and will meet my fate as it comes.

My cock is hard and I am locked and loaded, hoping beyond all hope, the collapse never happens...deluded as that may sound.

Ready to build a community are ya?

If our genius "intelligence" and " law enforcement" personal had a brain cell they would join the Vets in their protest.

This will end badly.  It always does.

Million Vet march got downgraded to the 200 vet march? lol

Not surprised you would make such a comment, JC, as it must have been torture for you seeing others actually standing up for themselves against corrupt and tyrannical authority, and willing to publicly condemn an unaccountable and sociopathic power structure, something which we all here know you literally cannot abide.

Well I'm sure wandering down to the white house on a Sunday afternoon is a grand accomplishment, but naming your march 'million' and having maybe a couple hundred folks show up is pretty hilarious. Throwing legendary clowns Sarah Palin & Ted Cruz into the mix doesn't help them look any less ridiculous (not to mention the confederate flags). 

Lot of cameras though, almost a 1:1 ratio of cameras to protesters.

Sorta like every other Million something March huh?

The Million Muslim March had like...twenty...including cameramen.

But do note the cranes in the background of DC...they're living large like the parasites they are.

That's funny too. The lesson being not to name your march after a famous African American civil rights march which was actually somewhere in the ballpark of a million?

FEDbuster's picture

I went to the 9/12 "Tea Party" march in 2009.  Media reported "thousands", park officials estimated over 100K and others viewing arial photos had over 300K in attendance.  I just know there were a hell of alot of good people that came to Washington that day and were ignored by the Obama's cheerleaders in the MSM.  The shit blizzard is on it's way, time to prepare is running out.


nmewn's picture

If its somewhere "in the ballpark", its still not a million, is it?

SWRichmond's picture

I realize it's not very likely that any of you have stormed any walled fortresses lately,  but am I the only one who noticed that the barrycade, so thoughtfully provided by the jackasses in the Park Service in their efforts to make us feel pain, actually look very much like scaling ladders which could be used to climb over...walls and fences?

nmewn's picture

Possession is 9/10ths of the

But I do wonder, how much of our money was wasted, by ordering our barricades, to be erected against us.

fxrxexexdxoxmx's picture

Yeah but there are really a couple of million veterans who support this. Not like code pink and the race baiters standing around a grave, which was the only shot the MSM sent out.

The corruption of the media is so pervasixe that only a shill or a FSA advocate would attempt to deny it.

There is a change comming and it will be painful and destructive. Ever notice how economists speak of creative destruction without a concern for the people involved. Luckily economists will finally get to feel this pain.

Amazing how this disscussion follows the same paths that the oodles of peace marches have.  Emotions tend to trounce on logic (and I'd have to side with JC on this one).

You can beg from POWER all you wan't but you ain't going to "get."  And, really, this is more than just asking for "something," it's asking for POWER to become un-POWER.  These folks are there to SERVE POWER.  They are NOT going to step aside.  Anyone who doesn't understand how they've set up the game ought to stop asking for others to "be involved," if that is, they're really wanting to be sincere about some meaningful resolution/solution.

I would be happy to debate ANYONE using logic rather than emotions.

I'm fucking tired of all the BS that covers all this stuff.  The "save the turtles," the "save the confederacy."  It's ALL the same fucking BS!  Yes, I get it that there's an element of "truth" behind each of these things, but let's face it- these kinds of things KILL the underlying objectives (they give the "other side" a target to combat against).

Please don't puzzle James Cole with such logic. I'm sure he's probably on a flight to Thai-up-land for some grope therapy.

So, splain again to me, the circumstances of why you live in Switzerland and feel compelled to comment on American society, in general?

A question for Tyler?

Its not directed at Tyler, its directed at YOU, James.




With your silence, I'm starting to think you abscounded with "taxpayer monies" and hid them in a Swiss bank...James.

Not very "progressive" you ;-)

Haha! Wouldn't that of been nice? Do you know what hr it is in Geneva right now?

Anyway, I dont know what you're trying to get at.

The Confederate Army was the last army that fought for my rights. I DO love the Confederate flag!

Not saying GOP wouldn't try it, but, many in the media would be more than happy to cast everyone involved in these protests as 'Tea Party Republicans". Even this article/thread has a quote from CNN calling them "Tea Party Vets" booing the police response.  The media is doing it.  Watching the media pick the winner is a mistake. This all could backfire, implode, or explode on a moment's notice.

Seer's picture

Great to see somone else gets it...

Create a better system/life and make the current one obsolete.  Applying energy against POWER only results in GIVING it MORE POWER.

Local communities should get folks on the same page.  A start is that no defaults or bankruptcies are to be honored if the contracts are held by some big Wall Street entity.  Local "enforcement" people should be given instructions not to go against this.  And rather than paying out to the IRS monies could be initially paid to the local government for direct application to the local community: paying the same amount that would otherwise go to the IRS would show that it's not just about being a tax dodge; later, after the IRS no longer had power, taxes can then be adjusted down.  Just tossing some stuff out... (though I'm not one to promote "solutions")

I like the look of civil disobedience these days.

Naw, the banksters will never spend energy protesting on the streets...
