Eric Holder: No Plans at DOJ to
Investigate Secret Waiting Lists
and Veteran Deaths at VA Hospitals

Weekly Standard, by John McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/13/2014 10:27:06 PM

Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Department of Justice doesn´t have any plans to investigate allegations that veterans placed on secret waiting lists at VA hospitals died while waiting for care. Eric Holder official portrait "Well, obviously these reports if they´re true are unacceptable, and the allegations are being taken very seriously by the administration. But I don´t have any announcements at this time with regard to anything that the Justice Department is doing," Holder told reporters at a press conference. "This is something on our radar screen at this point, but there is an investigation being done by the [VA]

Comments:
Are you freaking kidding me??? I´m sure he would feel differently if it was someone his family who died!! I just cannot even believe what is happening in this country. It is astonishing and horrifying.

To this progressive regime, there are only liberal elitists and the "great unwashed". Not a member of the elite (where you´re exempt from ObamaCare) ? Then you´re trailer trash and a potential domestic terrorist in dire need of control by your betters: IRS biased against you? Too bad. Healthcare costs a lot more now? Too bad. Stuck on a "death list" with the VA? TOO BAD! Suck it up Jack. The King will block any inkling of their wrong-doing in ALL of their scandals.
Maybe it was "the VIDEO" that put our veteran heroes on the VA death list ... couldn´t be government´s fault right?

No surprise here, however, I am thoroughly disgusted with Holder´s inability to do the right thing especially when it comes to something that is so blatantly wrong. Obama has put him at the head of the Justice Department because, like himself, Holder has no soul. They are purely agenda driven political animals committed to right wrongs as they perceive them. In their supreme arrogance they feel they have the power to decide what constitutes wrong doing or not. Their lawlessness is ignored. Are there not still checks and balances in this Republic or was that suspended the day Obama was inaugurated? One thing I have learned. Social justice means there is NO justice. Obama and Holder have made the rule of law moot. Justice is in flux and they alone will define it. Does this not bother anyone up on Capitol Hill?

Okay. One more time....

They want US to DIE. They want our elderly and our veterans to permanently LEAVE the planet. They are already killing pre-born infants, euthanasia of our elderly is right at our doorstep. Deletion of our handicapped is not far off.

But for now, especially those who remember the past, who were taught the Constitution and U.S. (and world) history.... have to be eliminated.

They want a nice, clean, controlled planet for themselves.

JUST themselves.

It´s all, right out of the early communist play book when
Lenin constructed propaganda for the State. Lie to the peasants, scare them, talk down to them, kill the guilty, worse, kill thes innocent to create terror in the peasantry, all the while promising them impossible things like farmland communes....In our case medicine communes.

Holder has the condescending arrogance of the best, most dictatorial Communist thug.

His refusal to help vets is proof of his Marxist arrogance.

In Eric Holder’s America certain groups like veterans, conservatives, Republicans, religious people, NRA members, Tea Party members, and others have a long, long wait ahead for justice. But things like forcefully cordoning off an election booth by a favored group is dismissed immediately. It’s called Holder Justice.

Knowing what I do about this reign of terror perpetrated by the Communist Mulatto, I can´t write off the possibility the scheme to deny veterans medical care came directly out of the Oval Office --just like the scheme by the IRS to harass Conservatives came straight out of the Oval Office.

How hard to you think it will be to get a doctor´s appointment once the Communist Mulatto and his henchmen ram Single Payer down our throats?

If the Secret Service could get inside my heard right now, I would immediately be given the death penalty --without a trial.

I cannot begin to express my outrage, as I would surely lose my membership here. I may now need blood pressure medication.

I´m not surprised Holder doesn´t plan to investigate, past and future deaths will quietly wipe out a good number of a certain voter base. This has probably been the plan all along, with Mr. Holder being 100% complicit.

It´s nothing short of murder.

My understanding, all of these veterans were in their late 70´s and 80´s. I would say that the VA made a decision on who will be treated based on age.

Hope I´m not right because this would be the beginning of a death panel.

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress. The Times article states, "In the days leading up to the Rose Garden speech, there were discussions in the

The central weakness of the Republican´s political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand. Republicans, especially in DC, can always be lured by

WESLACO - BCFS Health and Human Services on Wednesday withdrew a proposal to turn a Weslaco hotel into a facility for young illegal immigrants. A media release from the group of non-profit agencies cited "negative backlash caused by information misreported to the public" as the reason for walking away from the project. BCFS last week submitted a request for a conditional use permit to relocate its facility from Harlingen to Weslaco. The agency had agreed to use $3.8 million in non-government funds to buy the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites on FM 1015. BCFS sought to turn the hotel into

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

Last night on Fox News´ Special Report, Kirsten Powers made the case that the kids arriving on the border shouldn´t be treated as illegal immigrants but as refugees. Powers apparently went to the border and talked to some of the kids there and reports they had some harrowing stories of the reasons they made the dangerous journey through Mexico to America. I suspect Powers is right that if more Americans could hear the stories these kids are telling fewer of them would clamor for these kids to be sent home. President Obama probably miscalculated when he refused to go to

Virtually every key House Republican, from Speaker John Boehner on down, has vowed to oppose a conference committee with the Senate´s immigration bill passed last year. And lawmakers working to craft legislation to address the tens of thousands of children streaming across the southern U.S. border say it won´t touch citizenship for illegal aliens, increased visas, or any other topics than border security. But a key veteran of the immigration wars on Capitol Hill is warning that legislation to amend a 2008 law being cited for cumbersome, years-long deportations would theoretically open the door to a conference committee on the controversial

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
