Veterans groups blast Obama’s
remarks on VA scandal:
‘Tremendous disappointment’

Washington Times (D.C), by Douglas Ernst

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/21/2014 10:13:06 PM

Two top veterans groups — the American Legion and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) — voiced their displeasure Wednesday with President Obama’s remarks on the growing VA scandal. The American Legion said in a statement that the president’s decision not to announce the firing of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki was “an unfortunate one,” while Paul Rieckhoff, the CEO and founder of IAVA, called Mr. Obama’s response “a tremendous disappointment,” the Hill reported. Mr. Obama, who addressed the issue Wednesday during a press briefing at the White House, said that Mr. Shinseki “cares deeply”

At least they appear to recognize that Obama laid a big time snow job on the veterans.

Now, someone correct me if I am wrong. but, I seem to recall a vast approval of Øbama from the American Legion during the first and the second campaigns. At least I remember being highly P.O.´d at the AL for their endorsement of this goof ball. Though, quite honestly, I could be wrong. I was upset over both candidates on the last go around.

Obama knew about you guys in 2008...and did nothing about it. He has proven that he doesn´t give a darn about any one of you over and over and telling him off won´t work. He is a follower of the Hitler regime. Kill off the old elderly, the weak, the whites......etc, etc. THIS IS the dream of the left and they are hell bent on getting their dreams no matter how many must die for them to make their dream come true. You better fight back.

You are right about the various veterans groups supporting Obama. I too was angry and stopped donating to any of them. They blamed their political committee for the endorsements.

Okay, we get it, you´re disappointed. Do something about it. Dig out your old boots and put them on the ground. Do some community organizing with flair. Take to the streets with your fellow vets and make a real statement. You will find the country is behind you. Make a show of it as only the military can. Embarrass the little jerk everytime he sticks his nose out of the White House.

Zero not only showed up late, as usual, for the press briefing, but then said nothing for 45 minutes. He stammered and stuttered as the great orator that he claims to be. He had no shortage of "I"´s or "me"´s in there though.

How many times does Obama tell his audience that he is "commander-in-chief", have you noticed that?

Some CIC, allowing a problem HE addressed before he was elected, a problem he publicly promised would be fixed, to fulminate all these years while vets died.

Yeah. CIC.

This is Obama´s new version of the showers, ovens in WWIi. His cabal wants these vets dead, euthanized. They might interfere with his long term plans when caca hits the fan AND he also has resentment/vengeance for all the oppressive, communist, fascist, Islamic regimes the brave vets successfully fought, destroyed. Of course he won´t fire Shinseki because he has managed to kill so many and that is exactly what the DC commies want. They are feigning incompetence but it is planned. The early VA-waiting briefing in 2008 probably reinforced the idea to make ACA job one, do the same to select Americans. Words won´t do any good-we need to get nasty, shut down DC, make their day to day painful. BTW it is easy to scare them, you should hear the chatter on some social media.

The comparison to Obamacare IS part of this coverup. The Left can´t allow the low information idiots to be shown this comparison. So, the administration and media will do everything in their power to divert the attention from this obvious reality. Like many Americans, the VA group is surprised because the media ignores the beliefs and actions of this horrific administration. The VA health system will be the American norm in 5-10 years.

The VSOs and the VA have always had a I´ll scratch your back - You scratch my back relationship. But I guess this time under this Administration, they didn´t realize that Obama really doesn´t care about veterans. Well, Obama and the Missus do when they need a campaign issue or some military officers in the background while Michelle hands out an Academy Award.

Just because they are veterans don´t mean they are all conservatives. Some or most voted for this buffoon once and possibly twice so don´t feel sorry for them. Myself and my wife are vets but I don´t use the VA but my wife does and it´s a nightmare to deal with them.

This is just another bump in the road for the grifter in chief, and another signal to go through the motions of caring about other people than himself. He isn´t competent enough to tackle it even if he wanted to, which brings up another point--it is my opinion that most democrats and low information types view the VA as a benefit that vets really haven´t earned, therefore to be redistributed to anyone who they think deserves to get more from the government in return for their multiple votes.

Obama´s MO in/on all his scandals and blunders has been to feign outrage and concern and vow to get to the bottom of it. Then he does nothing and lets the passing of time do the rest. Obama knows that the MSM won´t challenge him at all, so all ends well for him, so far, on every one of his misdeeds.
As for the Veteran´s Groups: Have they all been asleep for the past 5 or so years of Obama´s Reign?

Something to consider: The VA was originally set up to provide care for people who were suffering from injuries received during service in a combat zone. A little later it became injuries or sickness that were/are "service connected." In my experience, and I had considerable experience with the VA when I was just a boy and young man, The VA provided the finest care available to those with combat injuries and service connected sickness or injuries. Back then, as well as now, it seems, they were not so interested to treating people with sickness and injuries that were not service connected, nor were they tasked to do so. It was not and still is not in their charter to provide treatment for people with non service connected ailments just because they are veterans. They couldn´t do it if they wanted to. They are simply not funded for it. ...to be continued.

The problem we have today seems to have started after the ´60´s social revolution. Millions of young men returned from Viet Nam with an attitude that did not exist with the WW II and Korean vets. That was the "entitlement" attitude, the attitude and expectation that they were owed something by somebody, either the Government or society in general. Far too many didn´t seem to want to work or were not prepared enough to find a decent job. They saw some of the Vets they served with receiving compensation for service connected sickness and injuries and they wanted their cut. Many, but by no means all, expected the VA to provide free health care for life. That is not the VA´s job and it never was.

What is the real problem here? The real problem lies with the Politicians anxious to blame somebody, anybody, for their dereliction and incompetence extending over decades. Now it´s General Shensecki´s turn in the barrel. The Politicians are perfectly willing tell outright lies and to sacrifice a good man and other good people, just to defect scrutiny from themselves where the real blame for this mess lies.

And damn the media, including Fox, for telling the same lies and misleading the public!

Whaaat?

Friends of mine who are "veterans" post Viet Nam era never saw a day in combat or even close to a battle zone.

Now in their sixties have used the VA for everything from minor stitches to full blown heart surgery. And their kids and grandkids get the benefits of the VA - totally free of charge.

The horror is that those that earned these benefits are neglected in lieu of those who did not.

During his 2008 campaign, Obama vowed to establish a “civilian national security force” at least as large, as powerful and as well-funded as our military. Then, early in his first term, his Department of Homeland Security released a report that specifically identified returning veterans as a significant potential terrorist threat. Since then, his administration has purchased weapons, body armor and more than a billions rounds of ammo (enough to shoot every man, woman and child in this country several times) – mostly hollow-point. A significant percentage of these purchases have been for agencies that have no law enforcement authority whatsoever.
Based on these facts, why would anyone expect his administration to try and keep veterans alive and healthy? Every dead or sick veteran reduces the threat of potential resistance to whatever it is he is planning.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

“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.

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

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal.

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
