VA secretary: Staff reacted properly to treat
vet who died waiting for ambulance

KOB4 News [Albuequerque], by Elizabeth Reed

Acting Secretary Sloan Gibson visited Albuquerque on Thursday with high praise for the VA hospital´s staff. He said the staff "reacted properly" when a veteran collapsed in the hospital´s cafeteria and later died. Jim Napoleon Garcia, 71, waited half an hour for an ambulance to take him 500 yards away to the emergency room. He received CPR on the floor during that time. "As I heard what they did and I stood there and looked at them in the eye, I was very proud. I´m very proud of what they did," Gibson said. "I´ve never had to do something like

I have a serious question....does anyone work for the government that has any common sense? I have young grandchildren who would react to a serious situation better than these people did. What blows my mind is that they are proud that they did the "right thing" and the person died as a result. Who are these people? Do you have to have a lobotomy to be qualified to work for the government? It sure seems like it. If not that then possibly have to fail an IQ test?

Sorry for a second thought. This new VA secretary seems to be as good as the old sec.If Sloan had a loved one die on the floor of a hospital, we would not be hearing "reacted properly". Is anything an outrage anymore?Other than the Redskins of course.

There´s been a story in the news and on Facebook about a Vietnam Vet who lost both legs above the knee, whose wheelchair broke down in a Lowe´s. He´d been waiting forever for a new one from the VA. Three Lowe´s employees situated him in a chair and proceeded to rebuild the wheelchair immediately with parts they had at Lowe´s. The man left the store in a rebuilt chair, and the employees told him they were honored to have helped.

An ambulance to go 500 yards? These people are insane. How can the staff have reacted "properly" when the result is that the veteran died? "The operation was a success, but the patient died." Obama´s mentor was Alinski. The mentor for these people is apparently Kafka.

In summary...A government run hospital with government paid employees had a veteran die in their cafeteria and their boss is commending them for their efforts. Next patient!

Breitbart National Security, by Wynton Hall    Original Article

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

Jay Dobyns, an undercover law enforcement agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) within the Department of Justice (DOJ), infiltrated one of America’s most notorious criminal enterprises – the Hells Angels. From prostitution to arms trafficking to murder and most everything in between, this gang is known especially for its brutality, as well its penchant for retribution.

There were smiles all around Thursday night when Hope Solo extended her shutout record to 73 in the United States national women’s soccer team’s 4-0 victory over Mexico in Rochester. Fans cheered, and the players, as they often do, posed for photos and signed autographs with the young girls who revere them. Ah, to be a strong and successful role model, especially for the next generation, and to have the honor to represent your country. But look past the patina of glee and here’s what you will see: a team and a league — not named the N.F.L. this time

Barak Barfi, a spokesman for the family of murdered journalist Steven Sotloff, accused the Obama administration of using Sotloff and fellow journalist James Foley as “pawns,” and reported that some of the “moderate” Syrian rebels sold Sotloff to ISIS on Monday’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on CNN. Barfi said that based on information from “sources on the ground,” “we believe that the so-called moderate rebels that people want our administration to support, one of them sold him probably for something between 25 and $50,000 to ISIS, and that was the reason that he was captured.”

When police found Ali Muhammad Brown, he was taking a mid-afternoon nap under a tarp strung between two trees, just a few hundred feet from a private road that runs along the first ridge of the Watchung Mountains in West Orange. A gun was tucked in his belt, his notebook diary nearby. He was living off bananas and other fruit. It was July 18 when Brown woke to several West Orange police officers with their guns trained on him. He surrendered without a fight. Eight days earlier, about 6 a.m., Brown had left his makeshift campsite and walked through the

Using his verified Twitter account, horror novelist Stephen King singled out the Tea Party for a lecture about Christianity as it pertains to the ongoing crisis at the Mexican border. "Revised Tea Party Gospel," King wrote in one tweet, "´Suffer the little children come unto me. Unless they´re undocumented kids from Central America.´" As of now, though, despite his vast wealth and land holdings, there are no reports of King offering to personally care for or allow any Central American border kids to take refuge in or on his property.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his
