Al Qaeda Terrorists at Guantanamo and Illegal Aliens Treated Better Than Vets!

guantanamo-659x370

By Isabel Matos

That is the GITMO detainee cell picture for the story below, but first Sarah Palin posted this on her Facebook Timeline earlier today:

Any Politician Siding with This Tragic Reality is Unfit for Office

Compliance with these un-American acts in this Obama Era deserves the scorn of citizens; we will do all we can to oust those who follow the Obama/Pelosi/Reid lead on disgusting treatment of our military and red carpet treatment of their law-breaking chosen ones.

She linked Michelle Malkin’s article How America Treats Illegal Aliens vs. Veterans. This is an excerpt of from her article in Townhall.com 5/23/2014:

A government that fails to secure its borders is guilty of dereliction of duty. A government that fails to care for our men and women on the front lines is guilty of malpractice. A government that puts the needs of illegal aliens above U.S. veterans for political gain should be prosecuted for criminal neglect bordering on treason.        …

Compare, contrast and weep:

In Washington, Big Business and open-borders lobbyists are redoubling efforts to pass another massive illegal alien amnesty to flood the U.S. job market with low-wage labor.

Across the country, men and women in uniform returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan have higher jobless rates than the civilian population. The unemployment rate for new veterans has spiked to its worst levels, nearing 15 percent. For veterans ages 24 and under, the jobless rate is a whopping 29.1 percent, compared to 17.6 percent nationally for the age group.

A Forbes columnist reported last year that an Air Force veteran was told: “We don’t hire your kind.”

And last December, Democrats led the charge to reduce cost-of-living increases in military pensions — while blocking GOP Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ efforts to close a $4.2 billion loophole that allows illegal aliens to collect child tax credits from the IRS, even if they pay no taxes. The fraudulent payments to illegal aliens would have offset the cuts to veterans’ benefits.

America: medical and welfare welcome mat to the rest of the world, while leavings its best and bravest veterans to languish in hospital lounges, die waiting for appointments, and compete for jobs and educational opportunities against illegal border-crossers, document fakers, visa violators and deportation evaders. Shame on us.

FOX News.com posted an article by and interview (video) with Former Pentagon spokesman JD Gordon saying he has proof Gitmo detainees are treated better than our Veterans.

H/T Veterans for a Strong America for story lead

they deserve better

JD Gordon has been at the medical facility several times (over 30), and says EVEN Michael Moore who was there used a bull horn to say: “We want the best treatment for Al-Qaeda, no more no less.”

To Gordon the issue with the VA is systemic, not monetary: the VA needs a top to bottom review. He emphasized the mentality issue is a “cultural” issue as well. They are just under-performing. There is no sense of urgency. It is hurting our Veterans who deserve better than this. He writes:

President Obama finally addressed the nation Wednesday about the growing scandal at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. After meeting with VA Secretary Eric Shinseki he pledged to hold folks accountable.

Thanks, Mr. President.

By now most American have heard about the VA’s infamous patient “secret wait lists” which reportedly contributed to the deaths of up to 40 veterans in the Phoenix area alone. Those patriots were American heroes who served our country proudly. Yet they were left to die waiting to see a doctor.

While the Gitmo ratio is 1.5 to 1, for America’s 9 million veterans receiving VA health care and 267,930 VA employees, the ratio is 35 to 1. 

Here’s another secret the White House doesn’t want you to know about..

Sarah Palin: Obama’s Laziness and Hillary’s Brain Are Off-Limits. Of Course, It’s Raging Liberal Hypocrisy! (New Updates)

By Isabel Matos

Governor Sarah Palin pointed out the double standard of the media keeping silent where Hillary Clinton’s health is concerned, yet not for Conservative women. She highlights the hypocrisy on her FB timeline yesterday (where she shows PROOF of the horrible way she was treated by some in academia in their obsessive efforts to obtain her private medical records).  Issues can never be argued with liberals, she said. They can’t win arguing the points of their politics so they resort to calling you a racist if you take on Obama or a sexist if you disagree with them to stop the conversation. She said Obama knew about problems at the VA six years ago but says we have a commander-in-chief who has not been engaged.  The media won’t touch him.. well.  She says it best using his own words against him: he is too lazy to be held accountable. In case you missed her FB timeline post yesterday: “Obama knows nothing,  sees nothing, and hears nothing unless his lapdogs bark, then his ears perk up.”

Updated 5/22/2014 3:54 pm  Sarah Palin’s Facebook Timeline post, tweet

and Flashback to Obama’s comment:

Sarah should be president.  I don’t hear a single politician out there talking this way. They’re all too measured and calculated in what they say and too indebted to those who keep them inside the DC beltway boy loop. Will 2016 be the year?

we deserve better than the va

Carl’s Corner

cannot think about it for long, when I do I see pure blood red and my blood pressure goes through the roof. I see young men fighting for their country giving it their all even their life if that is what is asked. I see them make it through combat, bodies and minds damaged but still the spirit that G-d blessed them with still strong and eager to be part of what they helped to fight to preserve. helpless and in most cases broke they turn to the people they fought for to help them, and you let them die, not easy deaths, but alone except for scared family who are helpless to aide them. they die not proud warriors deaths or deaths noble and honored, but deaths at home in a stained bed with their waste and pain. Be proud America, be very proud a gay football player gets more concern than people who fought for you. DISGUSTING.

Really really really insulting. nearly every single slime ball in Washington when asked about the Veterans dying from neglect said, ” this is unacceptable!” Really, no shit Sherlock! It’s unacceptable, thats it? No. We need to prosecute and send people to prison over this, or maybe we need to over haul the whole thing from the bottom up!

Well, as a Veteran I feel so so much better that at least these pricks find our deaths UNACCEPTABLE. Way to go America. I came home from Vietnam 20 years old and for years was referred to as a lowlife baby killer. After a few decades you let up and pat us on the back. Should have known there was a knife in that hand!!!

~ *********~

When Bush is done mourning the death of his dog (which is on the news), maybe he can release a statement about the death of Veterans at the hands of the VA!  Most of these Vets are in these ER`s and need care because they carried out his policies. What – you leave office and you are not held responsible for anything? What kind of crap is that? That’s not class that’s being a coward. 

News flash! Those vets at that bike ride he took a picture with? They are selected. They do not even make a dent in the real number of disabled vets most of which cannot get medical treatment, pensions or a f***ing bike ride.

Vietman War Vet Advises: Don’t Just Thank a Vet. Enlist Their Help To Win!

 America’s War on Veterans

by Carl Irwin

As of today I do not have the total number of Veterans killed in Americas war on them, but the death toll is pretty high. America has learned that you just cannot come right out and kill a Veteran because most are too smart and too hard to kill.

The way you kill them is to lure them to a safe hospital location and promise them treatment for some illness they may have. Then you give them either poor or shoddy treatment and watch them slowly die over time. This was the preferred method, or the more cost efficient method by which they are placed on a waiting list which goes no where.

They can die at home so Americans are spared the sight and actually not having to get their hands dirty.

Hearings are now being held about the war and how it is going. So far it seems to be a great success. One hospital alone has racked up more than 40 “deaths”. Other hospitals are just reporting in, so we await those body counts.

Another problem in the war on Veterans is military pensions. It has been found that these pensions may enable the Veteran to avoid VA hospitals and live a rather comfortable life. We have been assured that steps have been taken to close this escape route. Long waiting periods are now the norm for any Veteran. Congress has thought about these and has passed an emergency Veteran war act which cuts the amount of money the Veteran can draw.

I know like most Americans you are pretty tired of seeing all those Vets in those damned wheel chairs or riding those bikes, but you can do your part in this war.

Vets live among us, some may EVEN BE YOUR NEIGHBOR. That’s where you come in. Just report them when you see them raising that damned flag on their porch or when you see them trying to enter a war memorial. We cannot win this war unless we find them.

There is a Manual you can get at VA called “Taking down a Veteran.” One of the methods, is to pretend you need some sort of help or indicate that you are in danger. A Veteran cannot resist the urge to try to help. They are stupid that way. Once located, leave it up to your local VA office to take action.

Just because America has not let Veterans win a war in the past does not mean that we have to restrain ourselves (or them) from helping win this one.

Sarah Palin: No Problem with Death Panels, Not Even A Smidgen!

Sarah and a vet
Let’s take a stroll down “death panel” memory lane. Here are just a few excerpts for you to draw your own conclusions.

My Facebook Post on August 7, 2009:

“And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”

Politifact declared my statement “Lie of the Year.” August 10, 2009, is their first claim:

“We agree with Palin that such a system would be evil. But it’s definitely not what President Barack Obama or any other Democrat has proposed.”

Hot Air yesterday, May 15, 2014:

“VA Secretary Eric Shinseki declared himself ‘mad as hell’ over the allegations of wait-list fraud in Phoenix, where 40 veterans passed away before accessing medical assistance while the office falsified records.”

Daily Caller yesterday, May 15, 2014:

“When individuals receive care through the VA, it becomes the only payer and hence, the only decision-maker. The VA decides who gets care, when, and how much. Moreover, as the single payer, the VA bears the risk of loss: If tax dollars aren’t enough to pay for the care demanded, there’s only one result —rationing of care.”

Again, remember what the influential (to other sheep in their leftist herd anyway) Politifact wrote about this “Lie of the Year”:

“We agree with Palin that such a system would be evil. But it’s definitely not what President Barack Obama or any other Democrat has proposed.”

Las Vegas Sun on August 10, 2013:

“[Senator Harry] Reid said he thinks the country has to ‘work our way past’ insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS’ program Nevada Week in Review. ‘What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,’ Reid said. When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it [by moving to a single-payer system instead], Reid said: ‘Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.’”

And Barack Obama himself warned he wanted single-payer! June 30, 2003: “I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer health care plan.”

Obama repeatedly warned America: http://youtu.be/Kvg8qVKZYuM. So, media, your average Joe Six Pack American (i.e. me) caught those warnings, and YOU didn’t? Riiight.

I love this American Awakening when finally more voters can’t say they weren’t warned. Stamped with the media’s “Lie of the Year”, I had the sticky label on my back for years used as convenient “proof” that commonsense conservatives just don’t know what we’re talking about. Denouncing from the Orwellian Left and a squishy Right ensued. But the truth stares us in the face and pocketbook, especially as we see the unworkable Obamacare.

What happens next is the Left will subtly suggest moving America toward a single-payer system, which was their intention all along. Watch for this gradual, but driving, descent into statism.

So, are you still relying on Obamacare to help and not hurt you? On the Democrat’s watch, health care in the hands of unaccountable bureaucrats proves Reagan’s adage that government is not the solution; government is the problem.

And speaking of the VA scandal, we’ve seen how Obama merely gives lip service to his bureaucrats “investigating” his bureaucracy, so don’t be surprised if he finds nothing wrong in the government’s VA health system – “NOT EVEN A SMIDGEN”!
