A Badge of Shame: The Government’s War on America’s Military Veterans

Leave a comment

By John W. Whitehead
November 5, 2018

For soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, coming home is more lethal than being in combat.” ― Brené Brown, research professor at the University of HoustonNot all heroes wear the uniform of war.

In the United States, however, we take particular pride in recognizing as heroes those who have served in the military.

Yet while we honor our veterans with holidays, parades, discounts at retail stores and restaurants, and endless political rhetoric about their sacrifice and bravery, we do a pitiful job of respecting their freedoms and caring for their needs once out of uniform.

Despite the fact that the U.S. boasts more than 20 million veterans who have served in World War II through the present day, the plight of veterans today is America’s badge of shame, with large numbers of veterans impoverished, unemployed, traumatized mentally and physically, struggling with depression, suicide, and marital stress, homeless, subjected to sub-par treatment at clinics and hospitals, and left to molder while their paperwork piles up within Veterans Administration offices.

Still, the government’s efforts to wage war on veterans, especially those who speak out against government wrongdoing, is downright appalling.

Victory: Court Dismisses Case Against Disabled Veteran Arrested After Lawful Purchase of Canned Iced Tea, Aerosol Bug Spray & Razor Blades

For Immediate Release: September 28, 2018

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — In a victory for common sense and moderation in how police carry out security protocols, a general district court has granted The Rutherford Institute’s request to dismiss the government’s case against a disabled war veteran who was arrested and charged with a crime after he lawfully purchased cans of Arizona iced tea, aerosol bug spray, a light bulb, and razor blades, all of which were on the City of Charlottesville’s list of temporarily prohibited, potentially “dangerous” items.

HELP US KEEP FREEDOM ALIVE
John Miska, a disabled war veteran, was charged with violating a City ordinance prohibiting potentially “dangerous” items. Incidentally, the veteran’s guns (not among the list of prohibited items) caused no alarm. In throwing out the charges against Miska, the court ruled that the provision of the ordinance used to justify Miska’s arrest is overbroad and unreasonable and, therefore, unenforceable.

Elliott M. Harding of Harding Counsel PLLC, assisted The Rutherford Institute with Miska’s case.

Whistleblower’s! Beckley VA Retaliates Against Another Whistleblower

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Whistleblowers! is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblower’s Summit July 27-29 in Washington D.C.

Join us this evening as we host Tammy and Mickey Mitchell.

Tammy Mitchell was an employee at the Beckley VA Medical Center.  As she was required to do, she reported wrongdoing by a superior employee at the same facility.  As a Title 38 employee under the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989, she should have been protected as a Whistleblower.  Her reports began in 2012 and the retaliation from the VA and its offices also began at the same time.

“My lawyer informed me recently that the EEO I filed when I came off work in 2012 was lost. He had been in contact with a judge and it seems there is not even a paper rail.  I have multiple emails regarding my EEO from 2012 until just recently.  I pick up the phone this week and was informed that it was closed July 2013. I filed for a hearing in July and the judge ordered one to be set up by the EEO officer at the Beckley VA Medical Center. That was done almost 3 years later March 12, 2015 with the director Karin Mcgraw.  Yet I’m being told the paper trail is lost and it was closed July 2013.”
Please tune in and hear yet another report of the protection by the VA of those who abuse the system and the Veterans and who are allowed to continue working while those trying to expose abuse, fraud and waste in the system are systematically terminated and penalized for standing up and speaking out.

Veterans in Support of VA Whistleblower Dr. Klein Friday May 12

Veterans in Support of VA Whistleblower Dr. Klein Friday May 12
 
Tampa, FL – May 9, 2017.  Veterans groups and supporters will gather for a national press conference and rally in Poplar Bluff, Missouri at Noon on Friday, May 12th to demonstrate support for VA Whistleblowers across the country.
 
Honorary invitees in support of our Veterans include: Senator Ron Johnson, Senator Claire McCaskill, Senator Roy Blunt, Congressman Jason Smith, Senator Johnny Isakson and Senator Jon Tester.
 
VA Whistleblower speakers include: Brandon Coleman, Phoenix VA, and Germaine Clarno, Chicago Hines VA. 
 
The crisis in Veterans healthcare and disability benefits has been covered extensively on national news networks including a recent Fox News interview with Dr. Klein, a VA whistleblower from Poplar Bluff, Missouri whose concerns for patients not having access to care drove him to speak up on their behalf. Now Dr. Klein needs Veterans to show their support for him.
 
On April 27, President Trump signed a new Executive Order creating the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection to report to Secretary Shulkin as a means of improving conditions at the VA, protect VA whistleblowers, and hold those responsible accountable. The President gave VA 45 days to establish the office and appoint an Executive Director, but no known action has taken place. Dr. Klein was hopeful that the President’s involvement would help him keep his job and allow him to again see patients suffering in pain. On Friday, May 12, Dr. Klein’s Stay Order issued by the Merits Systems Protection Board will expire and Veterans will likely lose another advocate. 
 
“The Office of Special Counsel got involved, then the Merit System Protection Board got involved, then US Senators got involved, yet the VA Hospital in Poplar Bluff has disregarded the law and the President’s new Executive Order protecting VA whistleblowers.” – Natalie Khawam, Attorney for Dr. Klein & President of the Whistleblower Law Firm. 
 
We ask that you come in support of VA Whistleblowers who care about protecting our Veterans! 
 
Veterans and supporters will rally at Noon at the Highland Drive Church of Christ, located at: 1601 Highland Drive Popular Bluff, Missouri, 63901, which is adjacent to the John J. Pershing VA hospital, on Friday May 12. Organizers emphasize that the demonstration will follow all laws and will not disrupt any VA activities or anyone coming to or leaving the hospital. For more information call the Whistleblower Law Firm at 813-944-7853
