What Was it All For? Veterans Have Finally Turned On America’s Endless Wars

Leave a comment

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“So consider this a plea to Congress, to the corporate media establishment, and to all of youwhen even traditionally more conservative and martial military veterans raise the antiwar alarm – listen! And next time the American war drums beat, and they undoubtedly will, consider this article encouragement to do what Keith and I promised way back when.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Antiwar) It is undoubtedly my favorite part of every wedding. That awkward, but strangely forthright moment when the preacher asks the crowd for any objections to the couple’s marriage. No one ever objects, of course, but it’s still a raw, if tense, moment. I just love it.

I suppose we had that ubiquitous ritual in mind back in 2007 when Keith – a close buddy and fellow officer – and I crafted our own plan of objection. The setting was Baghdad, Iraq, at the start of the “surge” and the climax of the bloody civil war the U.S. invasion had unleashed. Just twenty three years old and only eighteen months out of the academy, my clique of officers had already decided the war was a mess, shouldn’t have been fought, and couldn’t be won.

Me and Keith, though, were undoubtedly the most radical. We both just hated how our squadron’s colonel would hijack the memorial ceremonies held for dead troopers – including three of my own – and use the occasion of his inescapable speech to encourage we mourners to use the latest death as a reason to “rededicate ourselves to the mission and the people of Iraq.” The whole thing was as repulsive as it was repetitive.

Chauncey Robinson:  Gulf War Veteran having to fight all these years to gain his benefits.

Retaliation, intimidation and unwarranted surveillance best describe what Chauncey Robinson has endured for 28 years.  Claiming they lost his records and medical files, when in fact they shredded them, the Veterans Administration has continued to stall out and deny his claims.  “Veterans are disenfranchised, disowned, neglected and abused; they’re treated like peasants by their own government,” the Desert Storm veteran said. “We love our country but does our country love us?”

” though many of those problems were due to “widespread mismanagement,” negligent VA employees and executives were rarely fired and some received bonuses.”

Chauncey Robinson, who served in the Army in 1992, is one of many veterans who have been scrambling to have their claims files reviewed after the problems surfaced in the New York office. He has been trying to track down his file for years after his claims were lost. Robinson – receiving disability compensation since 1995 for post-traumatic stress disorder – said he is not receiving money he is owed for service-related hypertension because the VA cannot find his personnel and medical files. He said transferring the VA administrators was insufficient punishment.

 

When an entity like the VA mis-diagnoses (and therefore mis-treats) an illness, that entity will surely be unable to prevent the illness as well

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The VA (not to mention virtually every other psychiatric clinic in America) ignores the fact that American military veterans (just like most of America’s chronically-ill infants and children) are 1) seriously over-vaccinated with a multitude of neurotoxic vaccines that contain, among many other toxic substances, mercury, aluminum and live viruses.

Because any neurotoxic drug or neurotoxic vaccine ingredient WILL INVARIABLY cause neuropathological disorders which commonly manifest as mental health issues, most psychiatric clinics will mis-treat the brain-injured or brain-toxic patient with cocktails of seriously neurotoxic, addictive and/or dependency-inducing psych drugs that can cause both serious withdrawal symptoms as well as toxic effects). None of those psych drug (or vaccine) cocktails have been proven to be either safe long-term or even effective.

Treating a sickness (that has been totally mis-diagnosed) with an erroneous treatment regimen (that is highly likely to be toxic) is a recipe for disaster. The is likely to be worse than the original disease.

And, because those treatment toxicities are iatrogenic (doctor-, drug- or vaccine-caused) the VA (and virtually every psychiatric or medical clinic in America) prefers to blindly continue to rely on neurotoxic psychiatric drugs that are known to actually increase suicidality and depression rather than relieve those realities.

V.A. Officials, and the Nation, Battle an Unrelenting Tide of Veteran Suicides

By Jennifer SteinhauerApril 14, 2019

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/14/us/politics/veterans-suicide.html

WASHINGTON — Three veterans killed themselves last week on Department of Veterans Affairs health care properties, barely a month after President Trump announced an aggressive task force to address the unremitting problem of veteran suicide.

Mr. Trump’s executive order was a tacit acknowledgment of what the deaths rendered obvious: The department has not made a dent in stemming the approximately 20 suicide deaths every day among veterans, about one and a half times more often than those who have not served in the military, according to the most recent statistics available from the department.

A 2015 measure that required officials to provide annual reviews of mental health care and suicide prevention programs has found that veterans often receive good mental health care at many Department of Veterans Affairs centers — but that has not decreased suicide rates. A relatively new program, known as the Mayor’s Challenge, that helps city and state governments reach more veterans through more public health programs via Veterans Affairs partnerships has shown some promise, but no data exists yet demonstrating suicide reductions.

While the V.A. has been the public face of the issue, veterans are in many ways an amplification of the same factors that drive suicide in the broader American population: a fragmented health care system, a shortage of mental health resources, especially in rural areas, a lack of funding for suicide research and easy access to guns. All of these contribute to the drastically increased suicide rate among all Americans, which rose 33 percent from 1999 to 2017. More

Tell Congress to Protect Our Troops from Negligent Medical Care – Amend the Feres Doctrine

1 Comment

Source:  change.org

Petition to Congress to Amend the Federal Tort Claims Act:

To the Honorable Members of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate:

We the undersigned join together in respectfully urging you to enact legislation that will amend the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) (28 U.S.C. Chapter 171) to allow our members of our military to have a right to pursue a medical malpractice claim, just like any other American has the right to pursue a claim for medical malpractice. 

The Feres Doctrine is an antiquated exception to the FTCA that arose from a 1950’s Supreme Court decision that bars claims for “injuries arising out of or [occur] in the course of activit[ies] incident to service”. Feres v. United States (1950) 340 U.S. 135. This draconian law prohibits service members and their families from bringing a medical malpractice claim or wrongful death claim against a military hospital responsible for the injury or ultimate death of the service member. 

The main issue that we would like Congress to address with the Feres Doctrine is that the Court’s interpretation has broadened the scope of the exception currently codified in the FTCA to encompass injuries that occur from noncombatant activities in a time of peace. The Feres Doctrine ignores the plain language of the FTCA and has led to unfair, absurd, and inconsistent results that treat service members differently than the rest of us. Most commonly, the Feres Doctrine has been used as an unfair defense that military medical personnel hide behind when such personnel fail to provide the basic care that would save a person’s life just because they are on active duty. 

Sgt. First Class (SFC) Richard Stayskal’s story is a perfect example of the inequality that our service members and their families encounter due to the Feres Doctrine. We believe that a result of Fort Bragg Womack Army Medical Center’s failure to notify SFC Stayskal and remove the tumor that was noted on a CT scan taken in January 2017, a 36-year old U.S. Army Special Forces Green Beret now has stage four metastatic cancer and will leave a wife and two young daughters without a father.

Four months after his January 2017 CT scan, SFC Stayskal was rushed to Womack’s Medical Center after exhibiting severe respiratory issues, including coughing up blood. There, the military’s doctors conducted a retrospective review of his January CT scan and noted an abnormality/mass that needed attention and advised that a biopsy be taken. Instead of informing SFC Stayskal and his wife of this or expediting a pulmonary follow-up appointment, Womack discharged SFC Stayskal telling him he had pneumonia. After being told that he would have to wait at least one month to see a pulmonologist on base, SFC Stayskal was finally approved to see a civilian doctor in June 2017 and had a new CT scan taken. It was at that time that he and his family finally found out what was wrong. We believe the failure of the military’s doctor’s gross failure to detect and treat SFC Stayskal’s cancer when they took his first CT scan in January 2017 is the mistake that allowed the aggressive tumor to double in size and metastasize. And now SFC Stayskal and his family have no recourse due to the Feres Doctrine.

This is a very important issue, especially to the military and Veteran communities. We need Congressional intervention to change this unfair doctrine that has stripped hundreds of service members and their families of the same rights that all other citizens of our Country have when it comes to medical malpractice.

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

Leave a comment

 

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.

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
 
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.

Cannabis for PTSD?

Marijuana Advocacy Network

So, let me see………we can test deadly vaccines on them by force, expose them to burn pits, douse them with agent orange and depleted uranium, contaminate the water they drink, build bases on top of toxic dump sites and never tell them they are being steadily poisoned…..but they have to be careful about marijuana????  We can send them into illegal wars of aggression where they can be severely injured or killed and then bring them home and do everything we can to make sure they either get a, 

a) no access to VA benefits and care or,

b) subject them to more deadly vaccines, psychotropic drugs in massive doses

c) if all else fails, use electroshock on them to subdue them and shut them up.

Have I got all of this right?  Just want to make sure I understand that weed is far more dangerous (sarc) than what has been done by the government and military to our veterans or what we plan to do to them under the label of “care”.

Tests conducted clearly demonstrate that DU inhalation / ingestion scrambles chromosomes in a chaotic manner, causing Gulf War Illness.
Including transposing parts of chromosomes onto others. Thus so many different symptoms, and no possibility of a cure. Test results are very clearly understandable by the layman. Shows chromosomes as differently-colored, etc.

Guest: Sean Higgins

Sean Higgins worked at the VA hospital in Memphis TN>> What he witnessed there was unthinkable.  Contaminated equipment, abandoned nurses station on a floor for paralyzed veterans.  Equipment purchased for hundreds of thousands of dollars that had never been used.  “In January, the VA Office of Inspector General (VAOIG) released a blistering report which made twenty-seven recommendations across eight areas: quality management, environment of care, medication management, coordination of care, magnetic resonance imaging safety, acute ischemic stroke care, surgical complexity, and emergency airway management.” (Reported by Michael Volpe/ The Daily Caller

These and many other issues that directly affected the quality of care of our veterans.  Sean reported what he observed and payed a heavy price for doing so. Terminated for daring to report abuses and gross inefficiencies, Sean appealed, winning his job back. Now he has been accused of creating a hostile work environment.

I suppose when you expose the neglect of our veterans and the substandard care they receive, and report financial misdeeds that cost the country millions in waste, fraud and abuse, those who benefited from these activities get a little upset.  Not to worry!  Even those who have been questioned about their competency to manage or administer the VA get rewarded!  They get promoted and receive bonuses!

Agent Orange, Monsanto, Dow Chemical and Other Ugly Legacies of the Vietnam War

Duty to Warn

clip_image002[2],,,

Four specially-equipped US Air Force cargo planes spraying a Vietnamese triple canopy forest with dioxin-contaminated Agent Orange during what the Vietnamese called the “American War” (those aren’t benign “contrails”, they’re toxic “chemtrails”)

50 years ago this next month (December 1965), with the urging of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the rubber stamp approval of President Lyndon Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, the United States Air Force started secretly spraying the forests of Laos with a deadly herbicide that was known as Agent Orange.

Operation Ranch Hand, whose motto was “Only We Can Prevent Forests” (a shameful takeoff of Smokey the Bear’s admonition), was a desperate, costly and ultimately futile effort to make it a little harder for the National Liberation Front soldiers from North Vietnam to join and supply their comrades-in-arms in the south. Both the guerilla fighters in the south and the NLF army had been fighting to liberate Vietnam from the exploitive colonial domination from foreign nations such as imperial France (that began colonizing Vietnam in 1874), then Japan (during WWII), then the United States (since France’s expulsion after their huge military defeat at Dien Bien Phu in 1954) and then against its own nation’s US-backed fascist/military regime in South Vietnam that was headed by the brutal and corrupt President Diem.

(Incidentally, the nepotism in the US-backed, Roman Catholic Diem’s iron-fisted rule was almost laughable, with one brother being the Catholic Archbishop of Vietnam, a second brother being in charge of the Hue district, and a third brother being the co-founder of the only legal political party in South Vietnam [as well as Diem’s principal adviser]. It needs to be pointed out that true democracies do not criminalize political parties.)

The aim of the National Liberation Front was to unite the north and the south portions of the country and free it from the influence and occupation of foreign invaders. The leader of the liberation movement since its beginning was Ho Chi Minh, who had made sincere appeals to both President Woodrow Wilson (after WWI had weakened France’s colonial system) and President Harry Truman (after the Japanese had taken over Vietnam during WWII and then surrendered to the US in 1945).

Each appeal asked for America’s help to liberate Vietnam from their French colonial oppressors, and each one fell on deaf ears, even though Ho Chi Minh had frequently incorporated the wording and spirit of America’s Declaration of Independence in his continuous efforts to achieve justice for his suffering people.

MILITARY’S TRUE “HIDDEN ENEMY” REVEALED IN SENATE HEARINGS

1 Comment

logo CCHRFACTS

Drugs and Death

2012: More soldiers died by suicide than in combat, at the rate of one each day. Suicides by veterans hit 22 per day.

2005–2011: Military prescriptions for mind-altering drugs known to induce suicidal and violent behavior increased 696%.

2004–2012: The FDA received 14,773 reports of psychiatric drugs causing homicidal ideation and homicide, mania and aggression.

Lawmakers Focus on Overdrugging

Psychopharmaceutical drugging is a key factor in the high rate of suicidesSen-Sanders-calls-VA-reps-on-outpoints among military veterans, experts told United States Senators in November 2014.

Responding to the testimony of a panel of experts, in addition to written testimony submitted by Citizens Commission on Human Rights, members of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee focused on the issue of overdrugging more than in any past hearings.

Chaired by Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont, the committee heard from Susan Selke, mother of Marine Clay Hunt who took his own life at age 28 in 2011 after tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Complaining of feeling depressed, VA doctors put him on a cocktail of psychotropic drugs and then piled on more prescriptions each time he reported adverse effects, Selke said.

CCHR-Comm-Linda-LagemannCCHR representative Linda Lagemann (left) and Susan Selke after Selke testified about her Marine son’s suicide while he was on a cocktail of psychotropics.

Selke said her son said more than once, “I’m a guinea pig for drugs. They’ll put me on one thing, I’ll have side effects, and then they put me on something else.” The ending was Hunt’s tragic suicide.

Others testifying included the mother of another suicide victim, a retired Marine, with the Wounded Warrior Project, and the executive director of Team Red, White and Blue. Both veteran support organizations focus on alternatives to psychotropic drugging of veterans. More

Tomas Young, an Iraq War veteran and member of Iraq Veterans Against the War (www.ivaw.org) died last week, on November 10, 2014, the day before Veterans Day. He was 34 years old. He died of complications of his incurable war wounds (and of complications related to his complex medical care including the cocktail of toxic and addicting drugs that had been prescribed for him for the last ten years of his tormented life) that he had incurred in Iraq. The initiating physical wound came from a sniper’s bullet that severed his upper spinal column in Sadr City, Iraq on April 4, 2004. Young had been in Iraq for only four days. More

Will Medicare Become Like the VA?

Executive Director of Association of American Physicians and Surgeons,

_________________________________________________________________________

“No VA employee, however incompetent, could ever be fired,” stated one physician.  Another said, “Incompetence is accepted…, and keeping quiet about it is the accepted norm.”

_____________________________________________________________________

Most veterans get most of their medical care from private doctors through Medicare or private insurance. Just think what those secret waiting lists would be like if they didn’t!

Still, a VA-like system for all has been proposed as a replacement for our unsustainable current system—at least until the recent scandals broke.

One enormous difference between the VA and Medicare is that veterans are free to go elsewhere—if they pay privately. Some veterans use their VA doctor only to get free medications.

Medicare patients, on the other hand, are trapped. There is virtually no private coverage available to persons over 65 to replace Medicare—President Lyndon Johnson wiped it out to prevent competition with “his” beloved system. There are only policies to “supplement” Medicare. And Medicare patients can’t just pay out of pocket for a “covered” service they can’t get otherwise, say because the Medicare-allowed price is too low—unless they see a doctor who is opted out of Medicare or disenrolled. For doctors, Medicare is all or nothing, so most doctors are still enrolled.

Most people don’t care about that—not yet. Who would want to pay for something that is free?

So it’s a good idea to look at those “free” (taxpayer-paid) VA services. More

VA Scandal—a Battlefield of Deceit, Delays and Death for Veterans

“Across the U.S., the Code of Corruption means that administrators set up secret waiting lists to hide outrageously long wait times. The falsified wait times improved their “outcomes” to qualify for financial bonuses. “

______________________________________________________________________

The VA has many truly dedicated doctors, nurses, and health professionals who do their best to genuinely serve America’s veterans. I salute their conscientious work and commitment under difficult conditions, often in a culture of fear and intimidation if they identify problems.

News headlines since the Phoenix scandal first broke in late April, however, clearly show a dark underbelly in the VA that is the antithesis of dedication to patients. It speaks of a “Code of Corruption,” not the Military’s Code of Honor that America’s veterans have upheld.

The U.S. military has an admirable code of ethics: duty, honor, and sacrifice. Their Code is to protect the vulnerable, shield civilians when possible, watch their fellow soldier’s back, and leave no one behind in combat. Our soldiers, holding themselves to these standards, trusted that the country they served would also honor its commitment to them for medical care when needed.

Now we see VA bureaucrats, administrators, and politicians whose only “Code” seems to be the opposite of the military ethos: lie, cover up, cheat to protect my income at all costs, even if veterans die while I cook the books.

Recent headlines tell the story eloquently: More

The 1946 battle of Athens, Tennessee…How veterans broke up a criminal government

In 1946 the political corruption in McGinn County Tennessee was staggering.  A sheriff, a state senator and their followers had stormed the local post office, taking the locked voters ballot boxes as residents attempted to hold an election free from fraud.  What happened next is history.  Local veterans banded together and laid seige to the county jail where the sheriff and senator and various deputies had taken the ballot boxes to prevent any outcome that did not put them back in office.  In the gun battle that followed, the veterans were victorious.  It may be instances like this that cause Homeland Security to fear our returning veterans, labeling them [possible domestic terrorists]. Paranoia will do that to you.  Imagine fighting in those wars of aggression and then coming home and being treated suspiciously by the same government that sent you to war.

This is a 13 minute trailer on the “made for TV” movie, but it is inspiring in its content.  It just might help some of us understand why the 2nd Amendment is so vital to our survival.  It was the veterans who fought back against the corruption in Tennessee in 1946.

Veterans to march on GOP convention in August in support of Ron Paul

Many Democrats and Republicans are joining with Independents in support of Ron Paul.  As the MSM continues to try to ignore Ron Paul, our veterans are coming out in support of his candidacy.  The GOP which is desperate to make sure Obama is re-elected has rigged primaries and caucas results, omitting or refusing to permit delegates for Ron Paul.  http://reason.com/blog/2012/02/18/paul-wins-washington-county-still-loses

Homeland Security has claimed that returning veterans from the illegal wars present a risk……..they could be possible domestic terrorists.  That’s a mighty fine thank you for those who volunteered to put them selves in harms way and who then later realized they had been sent to war, not to protect America’s freedom, but more on behalf of global corporations and central bankers.

Ask your self why, when Ron Paul’s election would be virtually guaranteed if the Republican party supported his candidacy, they refuse to do so?  What political party runs one man who is devoid of any personality at all, another who is religious nut, and a third that is lacking in morality or ethics? And the Republicans think one of these three are potential winners? In what alternate universe?

A march on the GOP convention in August is planned by our veterans in support of Ron Paul.  If you can attend, please do so.

Keep in mind that MSM refused to cover this event that occured in February 2012 as hundreds of veterans marched on the White House in support of Ron Paul.

The First Gulf war, fought to check Saddam Hussein’s attempt to take over Kuwait and its oil reserves, set off a series of Middle East military conflicts that have lasted more than two decades. Tragically, many veterans of these conflicts have returned home with serious medical problems; both physical and mental.

The VA, charged with meeting the medical needs of these veterans’  has been found lacking; sheer numbers, lack of funding, and incompetence being the most often cited reasons.

Medical problems for a large portion of these veterans  may very well have originated from the handling of—and battlefield exposure to—contaminated areas where U.S. ordinance containing depleted uranium (DU, or U238); used in the First Gulf war and all subsequent Middle East conflicts.

Radiation sickness at first appeared an obvious option for the veterans’ illnesses, but this was quickly tossed into the  Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) kettle, and later repositioned in the public’s mind as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Depression, headaches, weakness, fatigue, and multiple physical complications that varied among individuals, often accompany this exposure.

Yet, federally funded researchers didn’t make the radiation connection  following the First Gulf war—over in a few days because the distribution of the world’s oil supply was threatened—because congress and their handlers knew from the get-go there was not, and would not be, enough money in their U.S. piggy bank to fund the medical needs of these returning veterans’ once lawyers sunk their teeth into the causes of their illnesses, in my opinion.

Investigative reporter Katherine Russ wrote an accurate summary about the results of this  delayed medical care for our veterans , and a May 2011 ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals  directly addressed their mental health needs. More

Then, one day, he suffered a heart attack and fell down a flight of stairs. On that day, his life and the lives of his loved ones changed forever. The injuries he suffered left him permanently, severely disabled. Gary was placed in the Chemung County Nursing Facility – and a familiar battle began. Sara, Gary’s wife, started complaining about the quality of care – or lack thereof. More

Our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land whose names or policies we don’t understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it’s profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it’s profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it’s profitable.
