VETERANS BEWARE The Veterans Administration has asked me to join a "Voluntary Research Program" to include a Million Veteran Program MPV that will help them understand how genes affect health and illness. In other words they want us to take a blood test that will help them deny benefits to as much as 25% of all veterans. They can then say that the diseases we have were preexisting and not caused by the tons of poisons we dumped on you, sprayed on you or injected you with. You must agree that"Authorized MPV staff have access to information in your medical records on an ongoing basis." What a disloyal slam to veterans. VETERANS BEWARE

How Did US Vets Find Inspiration and Healing in Israel? Abigail Klein Leichman (Oct 13, 2014) The proximity of the battlefield left many of the visiting vets in awe of how Israelis can be friendly and smiling despite the enemies on their borders. (Israel)—On the final evening of a September 2-10 tour of Israel with Heroes to Heroes, a US Army veteran named Juan told ISRAEL21c: "Instead of the VA [Veterans Administration] spending money on our medical treatment, they should have spent money on this program, because more healing was done here." (Photo: US vets Anthony and James laying a wreath at Latrun war memorial/Israel21c) Based in New Jersey, the nonprofit Heroes to Heroes brings over "teams" of war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and often physical injuries as well. Juan, who fought in Iraq in 2004 to 2005, was in the fifth cohort of 10 Americans accompanied by a coach and Heroes to Heroes founder Judy Schaffer, along with six Israeli vets who met them here. "For vetera ...
The St. Charles Parish Department of Community Services has partnered with the Jefferson Parish Finance Authority to make down payment and closing cost grants available to qualified homebuyers in St. Charles Parish. “The St. Charles Parish Southern Mortgage Assistance Program has been successful in other parishes, and we wanted to bring it to St. Charles Parish to help hardworking individuals and families achieve the American Dream of home ownership,” Community Services Director Joan Diaz said. “It is an opportunity for people to get into a home who would otherwise be unable to enter the real estate market.” The Down Payment Assistance (DPA) grants do not have to be paid back and can equal either 3 or 4 percent of the total loan amount. To qualify, participants must have a minimum credit score of 640 or higher and be the recipient of a Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Veterans Administration (VA) or Rural Development (RD) 30-year fixed rate mortgage eligible for conversion to Government Natio ...
Happy 25th Anniversary American Veterans for Equal Rights Today, October 1, 2014, marks the beginning of AVER's 25th year as America's *** *** Bisexual, and Transgender Veterans Service Organization. For 25 years this organization has worked to create equality for the courageous LGBT men and women who serve to defend our nation's freedom.

The Battle of Leyte Gulf, considered as the largest naval battle in history, took place between October 23 to 26, 1944. It marked the beginning of the liberation of the Philippines two and a half years after the fall of Bataan on April 9, 1942. It was also the beginning of a massive extermination of civilians by the Imperial Japanese Army culminating in the Battle for Manila. Manila, once called the Pearl of the Orient became the second most devastated city after Warsaw, Poland. By the end of the war ...

Our Money’s Worth For the upcoming fiscal year 2015, the federal government is projected to spend around three point nine trillion dollars, and a large chunk of the spending will be borrowed money. Without getting into a policy debate concerning cutting or increasing spending and/or taxes, most of us would agree that three point nine trillion is a wee bit more than walking-around, pocket money. With such a huge investment in governmental operations, we should have a reasonable expectation that the quality of services received would be top-notch. However, such has not proven to be the case. Actually, in many cases and to our chagrin, the opposite occurs. I am not speaking of building Frisbee golf courses or studying the effects of drinking alcohol on chimpanzees. Most of would agree that such boondoggles are ridiculous. Rather, I am referring to basic tasks our government should be able to handle with relative ease. The Veterans Administration should be able to provide care for our veterans in a timely m ...
"The upside down U.S. flag is an official signal of distress. It is not meant to be, and is not officially recognized as any type of disrespect when so displayed for the right reasons. To the contrary, here is the relevant part of the US Code of Laws regarding how to fly the flag when in distress: THE FLAG CODE Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10 As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress,Approved July 7, 1976 § 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

And now... the NEWS! The current administration has always been one of REaction rather then one of PROaction. Example: We have known for quite some time now that the country of Africa (where most deceases originate) and are widely spread because of lack of medical care, as well as out of ignorance. My question is... if we know of a deadly decease in one place on earth and there is air travel being allowed between that place and the United States... this is comparable to allowing your kids to go out and play in a known area that has been contaminated with radiation, and then allowing them to come back into your house and share it with all the other family members. COMMON SENSE should indictate that ANY ONE who travels to Africa, (no matter what part of the continent) who wishes to return to the United States should be flown to a remote place, (such as an island) that has a quarantine station set up whereby that person or persons are to be kept under strict medical observation for a period of at least (2) w ...

For these securities, the payment of principal and interest is unconditionally guaranteed by the U.S. government, and thus they are of the highest possible credit quality.

In the Washington PRNewswire on Dec. 28, The Veterans Administration announced the completion of a landmark, VA-funded study on the readjustment problems of Vietnam veterans. Mandated by Congress in 1983 and initiated in 1984, the study is the first of its kind to examine the post-war readjustment problems among Vietnam-era veterans of all branches of the military—male and female—on a nationwide basis. The four-year study was conducted under a VA contract by The four-year, Veterans Administration funded study, mandated by Congress and conducted by the Research Triangle Institute, was designed to provide information about the incidence, prevalence and effects on PTSD and related post-war psychological problems among Vietnam Veterans. The suicide rate of Vietnam era vets is 86% higher than their peer group.

Did you know? The VFW traces its roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service: Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans' pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves. Some of these veterans banded together and formed organizations with what would become known as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. After chapters were formed in Ohio, Colorado and Pennsylvania, the movement quickly gained momentum. By 1915, membership grew to 5,000; by 1936, membership was almost 200,000. Since then, the VFW's voice had been instrumental in establishing the Veterans Administration, creating a GI bill for the 20th century, the development of the national cemetery system and the fight for compensation for Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange and for veterans diagnosed with Gulf War Syndrome. In 2008, VFW won a long-fought vi ...

The insipid moron, traitorous, congenital liar in the White House continues to stonewall valid investigations into the IRS, Veterans Administration, Benghazi, Fast and Furious and a myriad of payoffs, play for pay and such. In addition he has been successful in shutting down all private sector job growth, grew the government and the national debt to stupendous levels, got our debt downgraded and our foreign policy is in shambles and the Muslim Brotherhood lives right in our White House and State Department. But because he is Black, representing at best 13% of our population, he cannot be touched by nothing or anyone. And I do mean nothing. He committed two acts of out and out treason when he went to Egypt in 2009 and apologized for me, my father and everyone who is American, to the Muslim World for our egregious acts in the past. Then he told Vladimir Putin that once he was reelected he could be much more flexible with him. He was caught red-handed with his comments about cooperation with Russia. B ...

How medical tech promises to save lives — and paper _ PALO ALTO, Calif. — When Dr. Sarah Russell sees patients at the Veterans Administration campus here, she sometimes turns to a trusted adviser: the supercharged software on her desktop. Whether a patient needs a blood transfusion, a different medication or a more refined diagnosis, the artificially intelligent program can give her options in seconds. Say a patient is anemic. With input from the patient's electronic medical record and a vast store of information from what has worked for other patients, the computer can determine quickly whether a transfusion is likely to be worthwhile. The program also warns her whether patients might react poorly to a given medication and flags patients who may have a greater risk of getting re-admitted to the hospital after being sent home. "I'm not asking (the program) to say, 'This is where a patient is headed,'" says Russell, the VA's chief medical information officer. Instead, for similar patients, "just tell m ...

H/T Kelly Bass Kelly Bass Please pass this on to any veterans you know.. In Harris v. Shinseki, a Circuit Court ruled the VA must follow established Veterans Administration policy and cannot unfairly deny or terminate a veteran’s right to due process in disability claims adjudication or appeal by claiming a veteran did not fill out the proper claims form. Make it harder to claim disability!! There is a serious backlog of disability claims in the hands of the Veteran’s Affairs Department. It is so big in fact under the Obama Administration that during the sequester, The VA was given an additional $300 million to handle the backlog. 2008: VA WILL BE 'LEADER OF HEALTH CARE REFORM' N.Y.

The Daily Teaspoon. The US Department of Veterans Affairs. I'm starting with this because it appears that the politicians are all proud of themselves for what they have done so they are ready to lose interest. The first oder of business is a new Department Head. Already names are being thrown out, the hewed of a Cleveland HMO, The Washington Post suggested a list of retired Generals and Admirals and I'm sure other interest have suggested names. Well President Obama you already have a guy Sloan Gibson who took over when General Shinseki left. Its only a two year gig, and any of the long term stuff will take Congress a decade or more to do something about. Mr. Gibson seems to under stand the problem and where the solutions may be for the short term at least. Here are some observations and ideas. Since the cruet crop of retired Generals and Admirals coin;t win a war or kill terrorists whys qualifies them to administer the Veterans Administration.

You know I have a problem with the designations used by the Veterans Administration for vets my thing is the Vietnam era and Peacetime Vet. now used by them (VA) at one time the vets that sereved in Vietnam were classed as Vieatnam War Vets and had combat status we now get lumped in with those that did serve but never went to Vietnam and previous was Cood War era vet those that served in Korea and Germany during that period. just a rant, but just seems to make what was done by some a bit lessor than it was,
(By Michael Connelly, Constitutional Attorney) -- I have written extensively about the horrendous and ongoing efforts by the Veterans Administration to disarm American military veterans by declaring them incompetent to handle their financial affairs due to physical or mental disabilities. Once declared incompetent the veterans are arbitrarily stripped of their Second Amendment right to purchase, own, or possess a firearm. This is all being done by broadening the definition of mental illness to the point of absurdity. Often with the VA there is no psychiatrist or psychologist involved in the determination of incompetence. Instead, some untrained bureaucrat reviews the file of the veteran and if they find any mention of PTSD or the use of the word depression they seize on that and make the declaration of incompetence. There is no legal adjudication process involved in this; the veterans have no right to due process as required by the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. It is tyranny in its purest form. Unf ...
Agreed!!! Obama had the choice, leave an American soldier behind or bring him HOME!!! The President made the executive decision to bring the soldier home. President Obama has no judicial capacity, he can not and should not Judge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on the unsubstantiated allegations of SOME of his comrades in arms. Until we hear from Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl nobody knows for sure how he was abducted. That is for a Military tribunal!!! If he had left him and or not pursued his release, I can assure you that the Tea Party / GOP / Republican - FEAR MONGERING - PHONY SCANDAL artist on the RIGHT would have crying just as loudly, Obama did not have the internal fortitude to bring all the soldier home! One need only look at the PHONY VA Medical scandal to see the TRUTH!!! The current VA Medical healthcare issue is just another Tea Party / GOP / Republican created PHONY SCANDAL. The VA Medical system has been broken since its inception. “President Hoover created the Veterans Administration (VA) in 1930.” It ...

There is a rare, bipartisan deal to help fix what is wrong with the Veterans Administration and it IS amazing what can be accomplished when politicians decide to stop posturing for political advantage. The Bowe-ghazi phony scandal continues but is the steam coming out of the outrage machine? General Motors is sort of owning up to its fault in the defective car issues. BUT, is GM doing enough?

Washington, D.C. – Representative Scott Rigell (VA-02) released the following statement regarding the President's unlawful release of five Taliban fighters: "Just as the nation was beginning to grasp the magnitude of ineptness at the Veterans Administration, President Obama’s unlawful release of five Taliban fighters to secure the return of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has given Congress and the American people yet another reason to question his fitness to lead. "While the release of an American was welcomed news, the President’s actions raise three serious concerns: 1) the President’s persistent refusal to subjugate his will to the law; 2) the ability of the released Taliban leaders to re-engage in the Taliban’s fanatical mission to find and kill Americans, and; 3) the circumstances leading to Sgt Bergdahl’s imprisonment by the Taliban. "Though the nature of Sgt Bergdahl’s disappearance and capture merit a full investigation, the remaining two questions point to deep, systemic failures of th ...
Well, my pickup truck finally broke down after 417,000 miles. I was driving on the freeway and my clutch went out. Had to be towed 10 miles to a garage, where my truck is being worked on. It will be ready Thursday. I had to rent a car for a day. I was expecting this to happen, as my clutch has been slipping. Plus it is original clutch, so I got my money's worth on it. I have a manual transmission, stick shift; 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup. Will cost $643 to repair. I had planned to have the clutch checked this week. Today I was on way to a doctor appointment at the Veterans Administration medical center in Loma Linda, Calif. All of a sudden the truck stopped running when I was going 65 mph on Interstate 10 near Cabazon, Calif. Heard a loud bang. It turns out that something broke inside the clutch, the pressure plate. Just wear and tear over all those years and miles. Had to wait two hours for a tow truck to take me to nearby Banning. But the towing 10 miles to the garage was free under my car insurance polic ...
Is the sec of defense serious? The VA healthcare scandal — known problems in the Veterans Administration — serious, widespread problems — were allowed to linger and fester for years. How distressing, how discouraging for a military already facing massive cuts to the size and capability of America’s armed forces. Now comes another demoralizing blow to military men and women who daily lay their lives on the line for a nation they love and honor — the controversial prisoner swap that led to the release of a U.S. soldier whose capture by the Taliban has raised troubling questions. Did he walk away from his unit? Was he, possibly, a deserter, as some in his army unit claim? Numerous lawmakers on Capitol Hill are raising serious concerns about the release of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was freed over the weekend in exchange for the release from Gitmo of five high-level Taliban terrorists. The Taliban itself is boasting of a great victory in the exchange — that must make our battlefield soldiers ...
First he started dismantling the Constitution and a few spoke up.. Then, he was prepared to blame the military about Osama bin Laden had the 'mission' failed. Not to mention that all of the men who were a part of said mission are now dead under rather mysterious circumstances. Next, he does not send any aid to our fellow Americans in Benghazi. However they have shipped off weapons to the cartels and almost all of our foreign enemies! Now, he is blatantly going after our Veterans! the so-called “death panels”—now found to have existed in almost two dozen VA hospitals nationwide—are an accident? A whistleblower says they have been in existence for years! Why? Because VA executives, already making six figures, don’t get bonuses unless they place veterans on secret waiting lists! That’s right, Veterans Administration hacks are PAID to kill veterans! Why?!? Why would this be happening?? Here is the first part of an answer that I thinks makes a whole lot of sense... Last week, an Indiana sheriff ...
Sorry, I have failed you all. I have taken the last few days to do some work around the house, and as a result have not really been watching what was going on in the country.

I spent 1 hour and 30 minutes today looking at what was going on in the world. I was appalled by the following: In an effort to defuse the investigations into the Veterans Administration, Ret General Eric Shinseki resigned Friday, boy the underside of the Obama express bus is getting really crowded. Hillary Clinton releases new book and says she has answered all the questions about Benghazi and that it was a video that caused the attack. A soldier that walked away from his post 5 years ago and into captivity with the Taliban, was released in a secret deal between the administration and the Taliban which resulted in the release of 5 high ranking members that were imprisoned in Getmo, including two senior . ...

from Paula Priesse QUOTE: May 31st – Four earlier quotes made sometime after O took office: 1) NY Times “economist” Paul Krugman: "We actually have a real live case of impressive cost control in health care: the VA system." 2) Howard Dean: “The Public Option is just like the Veterans Administration." 3) Slate Magazine (on the VA): “The Triumph of Socialized Medicine. Right here in the USA." & 4) The WH itself: "Vets' health care is safe and sound." Fast forward to Politico yesterday: “The audit, issued as VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned Friday, found that 64 percent of the 216 VA facilities reviewed had at least one instance where a veterans’ desired appointment date had been changed. The review found 13 percent of schedulers had received specific instructions to misrepresent wait times.” 64 PERCENT. 13 PERCENT TRAINED TO COMMIT FRAUD. Three things we know: 1) Krugman & Dean are fools. 2) Obamacare is building its own army of corruptocrats. & 3) With all of O’s delays, the real “fu ...
Perhaps the ladies and gentlemen veterans of our USA contingent might find the following excerpt from www.medalsofamerica.com useful for their sartorial planning of Burns suppers, AGM, etc... For wear with mufti: For more formal occasions, it is correct and encouraged by the Veterans Administration to wear miniature decorations and medals. For a black or white tie occasion, the rule is quite simple: if the lapel is wide enough you wear the miniatures on the left lapel. In the case of a shawl lapel on a tuxedo, the miniature medals are worn over the left breast pocket. The center of the holding bar of the bottom row of medals should be parallel to the ground immediately above the pocket. Do not wear a pocket-handkerchief. Miniature medals really do make a handsome statement of patriotic service at weddings and other social events. Miniature ribbons and medals can also be worn on a civilian suit at Veterans’ functions, memorial events, formal occasions of ceremony and social functions of a military nature ...
The Real Problem is a Decade of War May 30, 2014 Saint Louis. General Eric Shinseki has resigned from his position as Secretary of the Veterans Administration. Now what? When will we start the real debate the nation must have about turning away from war? The resignation of General Eric Shinseki is not the answer to the challenges facing the Veterans Administration. Yes the department has serious problems of mismanagement, incompetence, indifference and fraud. All these issues must be fixed immediately. Someone must be held accountable and apparently that someone is Eric Shinseki. But we must get to the root of the problem. Why is the VA overwhelmed by greater numbers of wounded veterans that it can effectively serve? The answer is more than a decade of war. “War is the real culprit in this crisis,” said Michael McPhearson, Executive Director of Veterans For Peace. “We must stop war mongers and corporate profiteers from controlling our foreign policy.” “We must stop throwing our children, and the ...
Jay Carney, the White House spokesman, resigned today. Rahm Emmanuel, Obama's first Chief of Staff, now Mayor of Chicago, once said, "Never let a crisis go to waste." In other words, take offensive advantage of every defeat, too. I'm not sure if Jay had a bout of conscience, or was just perceived as ineffective. But resigning on the same day as Veterans Administration head Shinseki, was a way to mask the truth of the day. Much like all the insane announcements about what they are about to do come at 4pm on a Friday.
For those that think the Veterans Administration is somehow better off with Eric Shinseki's resignation, I believe you are sorely mistaken. General Shinseki is passionate about the support of his fellow veterans, in addition to being a remarkably great, and brilliant, leader. I, firmly, believe that the VA is terribly diminished by General Shinseki's departure.
And goodbye to General Shinseki who gifted Obama with the Veterans Administration scandal.
Did anyone see the nightly news last evening? ...Concerning the Veterans Administration? They actually explained the small computer program that killed thousands and lined just as many pockets. Pretty simple scam, really. Then, The Prez comes on this morning to say the Director has resigned. Well... I think that is a good thing. He might want to get out while the gettin's good. Someone had to have made that computer program, and installed it, after getting either an ok to make it, and/or an ok to go ahead with these bonuses. I'd love to know which administration came up with the idea? Who implemented the plan? ..and How long has this been happening? I think the biggest question is this: Are they still using the same scheduling program? ..and.. How many bonuses have been paid since this came to light? * Mom called for his medical records. They didn't know he had passed, yet. (They said) However, the morning he did pass, I answered the phone (at his house), with great joy of telling them they didn't ...

General Shinseki's service to our country should be something we all are grateful for and appreciate. I believe that Gen. Shinseki put too much faith in the bureaucracy at the Veterans Administration and it was the bureaucracy that let him and countless Veterans and their families down. While I do not celebrate the General's resignation, I believe he did what needed to be done. Congress should immediately turn their attention to reforming a bureaucracy that must become Veteran centered without delay.

On August 15, 1945 President Harry S. Truman appointed General Omar Bradley to the head of the Veterans Administration. While not thrilled with the assignment, Bradley worked diligently to modernize the organization to meet the challenges it would face in the postwar years. Basing his decisions on the needs of veterans rather than political considerations, he built a nationwide system of offices and hospitals as well as revised an updated the GI Bill and arranged for job training. I'LL BET Obozo has never heard of him!

How about we do this? No more going to war if we don't have the money to pay for it. (Ask Dave Ramsey how to handle the finances.) If we do go to war, we take care of our soldiers. No matter what. We stop pointing fingers and blaming current offices for the troubles in the VA health care, and we fix it. It's nothing new. The original Veterans Bureau was created in 1921 for World War I veterans and initially led by Col. Charles R. Forbes, who only two years later was convicted of entering into corrupt agreements with contractors, including some who were involved in hospital operations, and selling government property at a fraction of its value. In 1923, Forbes went to prison for the offenses. After that inauspicious beginning, Gen. Frank T. Hines took over, but due to recurring problems the bureau was officially dissolved in 1930 and reconstituted as the Veterans Administration -- with Hines still at the helm. By 1932, the situation had improved little, and thousands of World War I veterans, the "Bonus ...

Medicaid Deaths, VA Woes, And Fox News Hypocrisy Fox Cheered When GOP Governors Withheld Health Coverage Blog ››› 4 hours and 49 minutes ago ››› ERIC BOEHLERT Twisting itself in partisan knots, Fox News can't keep track of when denying health benefits to Americans is a good thing and when it's a bad thing. Here's a helpful crib sheet: Denying health care by expanding Medicaid is cheered by Fox News. Denying health care through Veterans Affairs backlogs is not. The current VA controversy has unleashed waves of right-wing media attacks on the organization, which conservative commentators now depict as a failed government-run health care agency. (It's not.) Fueling their five-year obsession with trying to undermine and obstruct The Affordable Care Act at every turn, right-wing pundits have denounced the backlog that veterans face, the allegations of secret waiting lists at a Veterans Administration hospital in Phoenix, and claims that dozens of vets reportedly died while on a waiting list to see ...

NOW IT’S A WAR! For months now I have been writing about the relentless assault by the Obama administration on our military and veterans. However, I now must modify my observations since it is no longer just an assault. It is now an all-out war. In previous articles on this blog I have discussed the Veterans Administration and its attempts to use phony mental illness claims to deny veterans their rights under the Fifth and Second Amendments to the Constitution. I have reported on the violations of a Federal law requiring that members of the active military be sent their absentee ballots for upcoming elections at least 45 days prior to an election. Some states are ignoring the law because Eric Holder had a member of the DOJ inform secretaries of state around the country that his department would not enforce the law. As a result, hundreds of thousands of votes cast by members of the military were not counted in the 2010 and 2012 elections. We expect the same thing to happen during the upcoming electric c ...
THIS IS THE TRUTH! Great perspective on the KIDNAPPED GIRLS. MISUSE OF OUR MILITARY!!! These are my sediments exactly! This couldn't be stated any clearer in my opinion. Gary Gottlieb President Obama held a press conference last week to express his outrage over reports that the Veterans Administration was routinely delaying treatment to veterans, with some veterans even dying while on alleged secret waiting lists. The president said that, “if these allegations prove to be true, it is dishonorable, it is disgraceful, and I will not tolerate it, period.” He vowed that, together with Congress, he would “make sure we're doing right by our veterans across the board.” The president is right to be upset over the mistreatment of US military veterans, especially those who return home with so many physical and mental injuries. Veterans should not be abused when they seek the treatment promised them when they enlisted. But his outrage over military abuse is selective. He ignores the most egregious abuse of . ...
