VA IT Still Really Bad Says VA OIG, Veteran Finance Data At Risk

238

VA IT

In statements to Congress this week, the VA Inspector General (IG) blasted the agency’s technology systems saying they put veterans’ financial information at risk.

VA hired the firm CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA) to audit the agency’s financial management processes and software. They audit revealed VA has even more weaknesses than previously hoped that make it… wait for it… wait for it… harder to audit.

That is right.

VA ineptitude at managing its own affairs and creating effective processes for managing money has also made it very difficult to audit the agency to catch errors or even fraud.

No wonder VA needs more and more money while never really fixing anything, right?

Is it just me, or does the VA system generally seem more broken every time it gets a financial injection. Case in point is are the technology systems American taxpayers keep buying while never working as advertised.

The deputy IG Nicholas Dahl provided testimony on point to Congress on May 24, 2017.

Dahl informed Congress that IT security controls are still bad, which has been a repeat finding since 2000. You know, that is almost as long as VA employees manipulated wait times in VA’s computer system to improve performance numbers.

Here, the problem was due to untimely patching of security vulnerabilities and a general failure to enforce password standards, among other things.

Never, Not Ever, Use “password” As Your Password

You know, those pesky passwords can really be a mother. Hopefully, VA was using a more stringent standard than John Podesta’s password strategy that was hacked resulting in the Wikileaks file called “The Podesta Files. His password was reportedly: “password”.

Even after being warned about the low standard and his need to change it, Podesta left it along. His entire email was then phished and leaked to Wikileaks.

Perhaps Podesta and VA use the same IT companies to secure their systems?

As for VA and its recent audit, one has to wonder where all the billions are going that taxpayers keep allocating to VA.

“Without good information technology security controls, VA’s financial information may not be safe in terms of confidentiality, integrity and availability,” according to Mr. Dahl.

The material weaknesses cited by Dahl are as follows. For your own information, a “material weakness” is:

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal controls such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of VA’s financial statements will not be prevented, or detected and corrected, on a timely basis.

VA IT – Now For The Bad News

So, it is a bad thing. Here is part of what Dahl reported. The material weaknesses are (taken straight from the testimony):

  • Information technology security controls – This is a repeat finding that our contract auditors have reported since FY 2000. Weaknesses existed in configuration management, such as untimely patching to mitigate security vulnerabilities; access controls, including inconsistent enforcement of password standards; security management; and contingency planning. Without good information technology security controls, VA’s financial information may not be safe in terms of confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
  • Community care obligations, reconciliations, and accrued expenses – This is a repeat finding from the FY 2015 audit. CLA identified numerous examples of obligations for Community Care Programs that were overstated compared to actual payments. As a result, VA management performed its own analysis and recorded journal entries of approximately $1.9 billion to reduce overstated Choice Program obligations and $2.6 billion to reduce other overstated Community Care Program obligations in VA’s general ledger on September 30, 2016. The overestimation of obligations also resulted in a large overstatement of accrued expenses, which management also reduced through journal entries. CLA identified several causes of these overstatements, but overall, significant system limitations hindered effective and efficient operations and controls. CLA also reported that methods to estimate the cost of care were inconsistent at medical centers and the Office of Community Care’s procedures for its monitoring activities were not adequate. For most of FY 2016, the Office of Community Care had not performed a nationwide consolidated reconciliation of obligations and disbursements between VA’s Financial Management System (FMS) and the system used to authorize and process individual non-VA care claims.
  • Financial reporting – This is a repeat finding from the FY 2015 audit. VA’s financial management and general ledger system is FMS. Since its implementation in 1992, 3 Federal financial reporting requirements have become more complicated and the level of financial information needed by management and oversight bodies has become increasingly complex. Due to FMS’ limited functionality to meet current financial reporting needs, VA utilizes another system to create financial statements for external reporting. However, this process requires significant manual intervention and workarounds to ensure accurate financial reporting. CLA reported that VA recorded a large number of adjustments (called journal vouchers) to its accounts in order to prepare VA’s financial statements. Also, significant abnormal account balances (that is, an account balance that shows a debit balance when it should be a credit balance or vice versa) were not researched and cleared timely. These weaknesses increase the risk of material errors in financial reporting. Although VA has made improvements in areas such as the reduced use of journal vouchers, many issues have existed for years and require extensive efforts to implement solutions to resolve them.
  • Education benefits accrued liability – This is a new finding identified during the FY 2016 audit. CLA reported VA did not use the appropriate method to account for veterans’ education benefits. VA manages several education benefit programs with total disbursements of approximately $14.5 billion in FY 2016, with the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill Program being the largest. Prior to FY 2016, management did not view education benefit payments as post-employment benefits. As a result, VA did not report an estimated liability for future benefit payments as required by accounting standards. In FY 2016, VA reported this liability in the amount of approximately $60 billion for the first time on its balance sheet.
  • Control environment surrounding the compensation, pension, and burial actuarial estimates – This is a new finding identified during the FY 2016 audit. It resulted from the lack of succession planning for the chief actuary who was responsible for the calculation of VA’s unfunded veterans’ compensation and burial liability amount. This amount was reported on VA’s balance sheet as of September 30, 2016, as approximately $2.5 trillion. The chief actuary left VA in July 2016, and VA did not have a successor actuary with the appropriate qualifications and experience to take full responsibility to manage the actuarial model assumptions and review the related calculations. Management subsequently obtained the services of a credentialed actuary on detail from another department. VA also noted its model’s assumption for the rate of new compensation cases was outdated and adjusted its balance sheet by $277 billion. CLA reported VA needed to review the reasonableness of its key model assumptions, which would include comparing relevant actuarial information from the Department of Defense.
  • CFO organizational structure for VA and VHA – This was elevated from a significant deficiency in FY 2015 to a material weakness in FY 2016. CLA reported VA has a decentralized and fragmented organizational structure for financial management and reporting that did not operate in a fully integrated manner. The VA CFO establishes financial policy and produces VA’s consolidated financial statements. Business components, such as the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), the Veterans 4 Benefits Administration (VBA), and the National Cemetery Administration, have their own CFOs, who oversee financial management operations and follow the chain of command within those organizations. VHA’s financial management structure was further fragmented, with three different CFO organizational structures within the Administration. CLA observed instances where procedures the VA CFO depended on were not completed by VA components or communication issues existed.

CLA concluded the decentralization of financial management functions among the VA component entities without organizational reporting and accountability back to the VA CFO decreased the VA CFO’s ability to affect financial management at the component level and across the VA enterprise, and also presented a risk to VA’s planned conversion to a shared service provider in order to modernize its financial systems.

So… on that note, have a Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Thank you to all who have served and to those families that paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Great “Bad VA Art” Ben.
Well, in my opinion, the VA has to do something to hide the money! How else can they rip off the American Taxpaying People in the tune of over $180 BILLION DOLLARS!
They figured out how to give everyone tens of thousands of dollars each in the SES positions!
So, with this new revelation coming out into the light, what will be done to stop the waste, fraud and abuse?

I was listening to the House Veterans Affairs Committee hearing today talking to rat fink shulkin and most of the discussion was about more billions to be spent on their worthless IT. Shulkin or should I say Skunkin wants to cut TDIU to give more money to IT, Veterans Choice (which the VA sent me a Choice card but turned me down for Choice anyway) and money to provide emergency mental health care to guys with bad paper discharges. I can see what that is: Produce medical evidence to get a discharge upgrade. Skunk shulkin needs to go!

With all the holes in the VA pockets, it would really surprise me if they did a full complete audit of the VA and found that more than 1/3 of the money budgeted to the VA was used appropriately with the other 2/3 being lost out the illegal holes in the pockets.

Your right Dennis, Shulkin needs to go!

Seymore, do you think Apple or Google has these kinds of problems in tracking their budgets?

Somehow I doubt they do since the CFO’s of those companies are likely answerable to someone, whereas those with oversight of the VA (Congress) are likely benefiting from the lack of accounting.

Explains why veterans are being denied their disability claim.

Hit this button, hit that button and then hit them again and whala I just put $$$$$$ into my secret bank account.

Wait that was not enough one more time $$$$$$$ there that should last me the weekend.

Again who is being held accountable. ! I know it was not me. ! It’s always not me. !

Not me should be so old he’s should be dust by now. Maybe it’s his extended relative’s or adopted Not ME.

Why use the word Bad. ! Why not just tell the attorney general to get the FBI involved.

They VA calls the FBI on so called disruptive Veteran’s.

Some thing is really wrong and someone is siphoning off this money. Of course it’s hard to track the money.

Who has access to these funds.? A lot. !

How about an I T worker and another employee, employees work together and funnel the veterans money to their or friends bank accounts.

Not me. ! Must be arrested. ! Or bumped off before he has children.

Even if someone was caught, all they have to say is I plead the 5th end of story or they can say you can’t fire me, because you did not punish my boss who taught me.

The Secretary has the authority to fire employees, or have them arrested and he should just do it.

To much money diverted in one way or the other. Time to pay up !

Hey, James, Seymore and all other PATRIOTS of America:

How about those Awan brothers, “IT Specialists” hired by Debbie Wasermann Shultz (D-Fl.), who ripped off taxpayers for $4 million in four years. Now she’s caught redhanded “…threatening the Chief of Capital police over her laptop!”
Where she let the Awan brothers use it to send and receive classified information to foreign (enemy) countries! She’s the bitch slut whore who rigged the DNC against Sanders during the campaign! And is “very close to Hillary Clinton” – “The Butcher of Bengahzi”!

This bullshit from “Shithead Shulkin” is just another stall tactic to rip off more money from the taxpayers! He knows full well of all the criminal activities committed by VA employees! Because he’s part of the crimes!
Our FBI and DOJ needs to convene a Grand Jury and indict all these asswipes asap!

Just as giving VA $19 million to design a freaking “computer app”! That’s bullshit!
Especially when VHA’s are caught nationwide killing veterans, feeding veterans cockroach stew, letting veterans rot and body bags explode etc., etc., etc.!

FUCK THE VA, AND FUCK SHITHEAD SHULKIN! They’re all a bunch of punk asswipes!
Yea, in a fucking mood tonight! PTSD kicking in on all this crap no one want to stop!

Well, Benjamin, and all, this is nothing new. Already aware that financial accountability does not exist in the VA. No frugality at all even exists in the VA. No wonder their request for money or need for money is to infinity. Lord help them Benjamin. All of the VA leadership types need to go to prison. President Trump needs to appoint a task force of actuaries to go work day and night without any time off at all until the VA’s financial system is cleaned up to the last damn penny. The government is going to collapse if they do not get a grip. Just like some of the government officials are not even concerned about North Korea and our power grid. All the government cares about is wallowing in fake propaganda conspiracy theories and bullshit instead solving real issues in this country. I tell you what if they do not get on board with North Korea and the potential possibility of them knocking out our power grid, hey, their pockets will for sure be no longer lined with taxpayer dollars. I guess then they will no longer be able to remain as hypocrits behind their walls. Benjamin, like I have said over and over again, these government iditics take everything for granted. The reality of it is what is here today could be gone with a snap of a finger tomorrow. They had better wise up.

I dunno, this just makes me suspicious. Are their processes bad because of incompetence? Or by design to hide corruption. On the other hand, is this a setup before the VA asks for more money? Or as an excuse to award another huge contract? After news of so many multi-million dollar contracts being let over the past couple years, along with a worthless phone app, why are their controls so pathetic at this point?

Why is it if a veteran owes the VA a penny, they can track that down and withhold it from the veteran in a minute, but these bozos can’t track much larger amounts?

Now, by the numbers:

The configuration management management weakness means either their systems are inconsistently configured, or they are not configured properly with proper access controls. Essentially, they are saying some systems have weak security, maybe only requiring a simple password, while others require a 12 character password, or others require they log in with their PIV identification card, or they have systems without any password requirement at all. Untimely patching of security means they are not running Windows updates on their Windows systems, or updating any other systems they have that have known security holes. Access controls simply means what I described above about passwords. Security management simply means they have systems without proper permissions settings, so they are essentially wide open to any user accessing the system.

All of this regarding their IT security on financial systems suggests just about anyone can access them and change whatever numbers they want, without proper tracking.

The Community Care paragraph says they are overstating costs compared to what they are paying out which suggests it’s a slush fund, or has little oversight in how the funding is spent. Is it any wonder they cannot pay providers on time? Is it any wonder they suddenly found they had almost $2 billion in the Choice program that would have been unspent if Congress hadn’t extended the program?

The paragraph on Financial Reporting suggests they are just making shit up, and when the numbers don’t jive, they just make a “journal voucher”.

Maybe I am stupid for assuming the VA has a Chief Financial Officer, but the paragraph on education benefits suggests it doesn’t matter if they do or not, they are incompetent.

The paragraph on the control environment and actuarials suggests they are way underestimating what they have liability for. Has this been the reason the VA is scrambling at reducing ratings?

The paragraph on CFO’s is interesting. The VA has multiple CFO’s throughout the agency, yet they have such sloppy accounting? I get the sense multiple CFO’s are too arrogant to talk to other CFO’s within the same agency.

Bottom line? You better not try get away with travel fraud! Oh, and if you have insurance? You should just rest assured the VA is accurate in calculating that either your insurance should be billed, or that ER visit you had should not be paid for, because the VA knows how to count and stuff.

91Veteran, you really made some insightful points that does lead to suspecting that all this could be for sure corruption. The point that was made about how the VA, if they choose to, can track a vet in a heartbeat with anything about anything. Benjamin, could the VA have a system that is not exposed to the auditors? And yes, too, as for passwords, this is correct they require 10 million long character passwords even with special characters. Remember, Benjamin, the VA is all about deceit and sabatoge anyway. The VA may not be revealing all information when the IG even comes to audit. This really makes no sense but something is going on. They present 2 different sides of the Isle.
Maybe Trump could create a task force of forensic accountants and forensic actuaries to get into the VA financial system to audit. Many questions????? need to be investigated to find some real answers.

Angela
Angela

And, too, I almost believe everything that is going on in the VA is by design. Benjamin, remember how you added the CIA manuals in your past news articles. The deceit and sabatoge principles. Benjamin, honestly, I really believe the money is being funneled to a hidden entity but to who, which, and where???? I do not believe it is due to incompetence because they can be very detailed when they want to be. So Benjamin, what is the deal? All Intentional. 100% Corruption. The Banana Republic VA. DOJ needs to hire a task force of forensic actuaries and forensic accountants to go through the financial system in the VA.
And, too, many of these University campuses are full of Leftists Liberal Democrat spoil brat type students. There is tremendous unrest and corruption everywhere in this country. Pathetic.

As far as the money flow in the VA, the flow of the money can be tracked over a period of time. It would have to be performed from external remote tracking of their internal systems without the VA being aware of the monitoring. Just like they monitor everything else. Why not monitor the flow of money in the VA from an external position and from a remote accessed terminal? Benjamin, our DOJ could use some of these computer hacks to trail behind the VA. The computer hack named Kim.com – the New Zealand computer hack who was working with the former DNC staffer who was supposedly murdered due to exposing Democrat email information to Wiki Leaks could be hired to expose the financial data in the VA just like the DNC emails were exposed to Wiki Leaks. As far as Shulkin cutting VA compensation, folks this is the rationing of care. SAD.This is the type of respect that is given to our elderly veterans which is total disregard for them and a total write off of them. What a disgraceful attitude towards our elderly veterans. Mark Zuckerberg the Facebook CEO is touting for a basic universal income for everyone. Why doesn’t he just send everyone a check off the top of his fortune instead of using the other taxpayer money to fund a proposed idea?
And too, Dr. Ben Carson’s
take on poverty is correct. Zuckerberg’s model is off kiltered period. Zuckerberg is dead wrong with his assertions. Dr. Ben Carson is correct about his take on poverty. Zuckerberg is all about Socialism and Communism. His attitude is deceptive like an adult bribing a kid with a promise of a piece of candy to the kid. Zuckerburg and Hillary Clinton are both about deceiving the American people into the Socialist and Communist
imprisonments.

Bullshit Smokescreen of self-inflicted eyes wide-opened-closed. That same concept the DoD and pentagon got exposed on many many moons ago where a toilet seat or whatever widget is allocated an insanely huge amount of $$$ and by the gross squared, adds-up really fast but on the surface, it just looks like a hell of a lot of widgets and toilet seats…for black ops and other projects….so goes the VA….except, it’s more than likely going to be found in a future audit, all the AFGE pocket.

By design obscured and this is probably the reason why there’s also no consistency from VA Network/VAMC, and seem to all be on their own systems in their ratty network.

But wait a minute…what about IBM Watson and that huge amount IT $$$$$$$$$ already funneling into the black hole? They need MORE?

AGAIN, the VA cannot be fixed it is broken beyond repair, shut it down and let a private company distribute benefits, let vets go to 5 star docs and let private attorneys adjudicate the compensation and pensions .

Disgruntled Veteran

@Flotmorton P. Gildersleeve – – – Sorry. Respectfully disagree. The VA CAN be fixed. Here is the General Brief on how to “get ‘er done”. I do have a detailed OPS Plan.

FIX THE DAMN BROKEN VA:

1. Recognize the problems inherent in the VA are SYSTEM-WIDE, not just limited to a few locations.

2. Fire all the Lazy No Good Workers. Fire EVERY single AFGE/SES Employee.

3. Sell off all the VA facilities. Alternatively, they may be converted into housing for homeless veterans.

4. Issue all veterans a card that allows them to choose their own doctors within their community that they can TRUST.

5. The United States Government will PAY those doctors promptly (Within 45 days) for the care they provide veterans.

6. ELIMINATE the “Federal Protection” Umbrella for incompetent QUACKS that the VA sends to other states to practice other than their own. Going to practice in Hawaii? You need to be LICENSED in Hawaii. Same applies to all other states.

7. Any claim a veteran submits that requires more than 90 days to adjudicate, is automatically found to be in favor of the veteran. If a claim filed by a veteran is found to be a false one designed to scam the system, the VA will have to prove in civil court that a false claim was intentionally submitted.

8. All veterans will be allowed to seek/retain the services of a Veterans Rights Attorney from their first initial contact with the VA.

POTUS Reagan broke up PATCO in the ’80’s. POTUS Trump and our current Congress Critters do NOT have Veterans Interests at heart. Perhaps their replacements will. VOTE OUT all these WORTHLESS INCUMBENTS. Give their replacement’s one term to take care of the Veterans. If they cannot muster the stones to do it properly – – – vote their worthless asses out as well.

NO Combat Veteran should be surprised when the next McVeigh Incident occurs. Bound to happen.

Flotmorton P. Gildersleeve
Flotmorton P. Gildersleeve

Hey that’s what I call a “fix”…….. Just what I was gunning for, Amen, Brother, the 90 days doesn’t have to happen, just schedule and immediate hearing on the record and make sure that officials will be culpable for any false statements which they make. Hold ’em culpable for felony perjury, and conspiracy to violate the VA regulations, etc.etc. Hello Air Wing commence dripping where the smoke is, artillery fire at will, fix bayonets,
no prisoners, high diddle diddle right up the middle………………………..

@Flotmorton P. Gildersleeve – – – I have been espousing this “General Plan” for approximately six months now. The General Plan has given me some time to work out quite a finely detailed “shooter level” plan. Taking a short break to clear my head, then a day or two for final review and refinement. Once that done, will place it on the White House site to see if it will garner enough signatures to get an answer. May also try change.org – – – to see what kind of response I get.

From: VA National Headquarters
To: VA talent recuiters
For: National distribution

This memo of understanding outlines VA’s newest strategy in our search for new talent which has now been formally integrated into the VA DDPS system validation strategy. In particular this methodology is believed to be able to shore up VA expertise and recruit the talent from available VA applicants while realigning the culture at VA with more modern standards.

In order to streamline the hiring process, the DDPS committee responsible for procurring quality employees must now apply the following test question to all applicants. There is now just one test question. The following test question is deemed appropriate for the entire range of VA employment and is required of all english speaking applicants;

“What is two plus two?”

a) Two
b) Three
c) Five
d) Mine

Applicants answering “a” qualify for jobs involving the payment of non VA providers, and additionally for VBA claims adjucators.
Applicants answering b” qualify for jobs in the patient services area, and Public Relations
Applicants answering “c” qualify to process veterans co-pays and veteran payments for care, as well as positions regarding the timely payments of bonuses awarded for job performance at VA.
Applicants answering “d” will be reffered to the Senior Executive Service coordinator for VA for inclusion into the upper VA financial management team.

Note that it is VA policy to encourage truthful responses, and VA applicants will now undergo DDPS validation to confirm eligibilty for employment. The DDPS system used to confirm applicant eligibility for employment (Double Dog Pinky Swear) has been undergoing overhaul since OIG reported potential abuses within the system starting as early as March 1971. OIG also uses its own DDPS validation for data it reports to Congress, and the program is currently realigning the OIG DDPS system with the overall strategy to realign VA culture to meet the every changing demands of veteran care and official time.

VA recruiters must now inform applicants of the brand new higher standards (now required since 1971) of the new national rollout of the DDPS system.

Distibution: National.

Subject: Write in answers on DDPS validation test

It has recently come to the attention of The Committee that some job applicants are writing in a answer of “four” at the bottom of the all inclusive agency employment test question required now prior to DDPS cerification. It has been verified by VA OIG that these forms wih the write in answers disrupt the computer from correctly scoring and placing the appicants. This interuption of computer time disrupts the delivery of a quality healthcare product within the VA healthcare system and cannot be tolerated – the answer of “four” also violates labor clauses that VA has negotiated with our trusted labor partners, disrupting official time.

Therefor, write in answers of “four” should be immediately reported to the facility Disruptive Behavior Committee for action when the official time is not so impaired.

To All,
This morning, while watching two utube videos, I ran across something y’all might be interested in.

I don’t believe a lot of people, especially PATRIOTS, know how deep the corruption actually goes within our government and/or civilian corporations. This would also include the Veterans Administration!

There’s substantial proof of “censorship” by the Main Stream Medias no one wants to address! Or, how our government agencies are involved in massive corruption and cover-ups. Causing MSM’s to stay silent over these many issues!

Also, there’s substantial proof of pedophilia going on by those in high places! Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted pedophile, for one! Who is ‘connected’ to many in high places! Congressional persons and Corporate persons!

Then there’s Debbie Wasermann Shultz (D-Fl.) “threatening the Chief of Capital Police over a laptop used by the Awan brothers (five days ago)!” They used it, allegedly, to send and receive classified information to sources outside of America! Some are or could be enemies of our country!
She’s trying real hard to get that laptop back! Maybe she’s under investigation over something connected to the laptop?
She’s also one of the members of the “appropriations committee” that funds the D.C. Police!

So, if y’all are interested, here’s the source –

For anyone interested great coverage of the Wasserman story as it is unfolding by Luke Rosiak at the Daily Caller. He has done some excellent reporting on Veterans Matters and is a reliable source for information.

“Wasserman Schultz Threatened Police Chief For Gathering Evidence On Her IT Staffer’s Alleged Crimes [VIDEO]”

“Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite.”

“A federal employee with knowledge of the situation and who requested anonymity told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that as House authorities closed in on Imran Awan and his brothers, a laptop used by Imran was hidden in an unused crevice of the Rayburn House Office Building. Wasserman Schultz’s office is in Longworth House Office Building, a separate structure.

The laptop was later found by Capitol Police and seized because it was relevant to the criminal investigation, the source said.

The investigation is examining members’ data leaving the network and how Awan managed to get Members to place three relatives and a friend into largely no-show positions on their payrolls, billing $4 million since 2010. (RELATED: Suspects Could Read Every Email Congressmen Sent And Received)”

“Though on the surface Wasserman Schultz would have been a victim of Awan’s scam, she has inexplicably protected him, circumventing the network ban by re-titling him as an “adviser” instead of technology administrator.

Politico described him and his wife, Hina Alvi, as having a “friendly personal relationship” with both Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York.

That baffled a Democratic IT staffer, who said “I can’t imagine why she’d be that good of friends with a technology provider.”

“Usually if someone does bad stuff, an office is going to distance themselves” rather than incur political fallout for a mere staffer, he added. (RELATED: House IT Aides Fear Suspects Are Blackmailing Members With Their Own Data)

Wasserman Schultz resigned as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2016 after Wikileaks published thousands of internal emails obtained by an as-yet unidentified hacker.”

Full article at: “http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/24/wasserman-schultz-threatened-police-chief-for-gathering-evidence-on-her-it-staffers-alleged-crimes/”

It is interesting to note that the person under investigation had access to at least 12 Congressmen and Congresswomen. There is a lot more to this story. See the suspect has fled back to Pakistan to his old job with that country’s intelligence agency. That little out of the way nuke capable frienimy of ours that was hiding the Boggieman Osama.

Seymore, I’ve read several of those articles and it is absolutely shocking what happened.

It makes me think little Debbie was blackmailed early on, and was made to suggest to other Democrats in congress that they should hire these guys.

If I recall correctly, Debbie was the first to hire these guys, then shortly after they started working for a few other offices, then even more as time went on.

If you look at the other offices that used these guys, you see several that were involved with intelligence committees or other kinds of security committees.

I always wondered why Jackie Speier left congress at such a young age.

In my opinion this is a massive national security threat, and should be investigated as such.

Instead, the Capitol Police are on it.

Seymore Klearly
Seymore Klearly

91Veteran,

I do know what you mean this isn’t some groundless Russian probe.

When you look at the names that were on the House Intelligence committee that Pakistani Intelligence. I mean they had access to not only their emails but all of their records stored on the system. Both Republican and Democrat. Some of the biggest swamp creatures.

Names like:

Chuck Schumer
John McCain
Jack Reed
Mitch McConnell
Dianne Feinstein
Marco Rubio
And at least 10 others and they are all now compromised. That is just off the House Intelligence committee. This is surely a major size butt plug about to be pulled to help drain the swamp.

In regards to the Capitol Police handling the investigation. Who at the FBI could someone trust. This investigation has been ongoing since early February. Clearly firing James Comey is connected and he had demonstrated he was not trustworthy enough to handle this investigation.

Also his current acting replacement Andrew McCabe and his handling of the Clinton Emails case shows he can not be trusted.

Also you can now see why the Dems have been trying to raise a shit storm about Trump and Russia. A great number of Dems have also been compromised and will need to be replaced.

Seymore Klearly

Now I don’t care what your politics are, just don’t come up into my face with a mask and tell me I can’t express my own views.
What do you think would happen in Berkely or Portland if the black clad thugs with the masks rushed the old folks demonstrating peacefully for Pres.

Suppose those thugs who falsely imprisoned the Professor at that “college” called Evergreen and the majority of students were vets who wanted the Prof to continue his lectures?? WHOOPS! Tell ’em Gomer: Surprise, Surprise, get the hose and wash the floor of what’s left of them. IT IS VERY CLEAR, thugs YOU SPEAK FOR YOURSELVES BUT YOU DON’T SPEAK OR ACT FOR ME.

Good morning from Oregon!!! We have GREAT weather this weekend. Yesterday was officially summertime at my home. I took my Italian Grayhound pair for a long walk as usual. Yesterday out in the middle of a beautiful lush green pasture (I live on an island known as Goodpasture Island) my male hound suddenly stopped short on trail, with his tail wagging lazy from side to side. He looked up at the warm blue sky and held his head up into the gentle breeze blowing off the clean and icy waters of the Willamette River 50 yards away and then…

He closed his eyes and stood still just wagging his tail slowly. Dogs speak a language in which the consonants are spoken from the tail, and the vowels are the rest of the animal. His name is “Houdini” and his pedigreed bloodline goes tracably back in time to the courts of nobility scattered around the globe. The hound is a vanishing species and those scant few that breeds that still remain (like Houdini’s breed) have been saved from oblivion by man, a species not otherwise normally motivated to save life. The Grayhound, whether miniature or racing exist because they form a special bond with humans.

Yesterday in the pasture, Houdini said very clearly to me (and the world) in dogspeak, “Summer is here.”

As I later sat on my living room sofa and inhaled vapor made from a plant that my neighbors grow, I felt at ease with life for awhile. I read from my iPad this blog author’s headlines, just the headlines from all these days past now and back in time, and painted a story in which each headline was a sentence by itself – part of a much larger paragraph, and so forth with my job as the author to be restrained from adding anything but conjunctions to hook it all together.

I also from my iPad read again the words of a white man spoken from 3000 miles away, who claims he will use men with guns to stop folks like my neighbor from growing his plants – the plants he shares with me and which even now I am enjoying. The herb helps ease anguish which is a symptom I seek relief from. The white man from Washington says this plant has no place in my neighborhood. It is pretty easy to get though if you are a PTSD patient in Oregon because in Oregon we decided to treat the ailments that veterans suffer from, which is far more cost effective than throwing them in jail for them. In Oregon we have decided it is not against the law to enjoy life.

To know of enjoying it is essential that a true understanding of the word “enjoy” be imparted to a man. Houdini shows me how to do that. Magic. When I with him and our third leg, Tegan (my girl dog and good friend) on our walks it is impossible not to enjoy it.

The man from Washington DC says my neighbors plants will make me crazy… who knows, but maybe that is why I enjoyed writing an entire book in my mind of just headlines that tell a story of our federal government for whom this white man works. I sure enjoy summer.

From Oregon on this holiday weekend, I hold aloft a burning symbol of the very reason our Constitutional Republic reserved our individual rights to the State in which we live! I toast and salute each one of you; fellow veterans of the United States of America military service, THANK YOU!!! (and this bud’s for you.)

I just have to point out that the Audit Firm hired to audit the Veterans Administration’s financial management processes and software Clifton Larson Allen (CLA). CLA is primarily a wealth management and investment firm. Which deals with managing wealth and investment opportunities.

“http://www.claconnect.com/services/wealth-advisory#Services”

The kind of company you hire to hide your wealth and reduce tax burdens. Not so strong on openness and accountability.

Since Shulkin hired a wealth management firm to do his audit. It does raise a big question in my mind.

Has anyone told Shulkin that he does not actually “own” the Veterans Administration?

91Veteran
91Veteran

Seymore, I see this audit as providing pointers on how better to hide their fraud, waste, abuse, theft and mismanagement.

How the hell do you not know you have to account for future liabilities? How many news articles has there been on state pension funds not having enough in them for future liabilities? Same with SSA? Or other kinds of programs?

Imagine how fast shareholders would be filing lawsuits against a corporate board if the corporation used such sloppy accounting.

Yet several years ago congress got excited over Enron? For a few billion?

FFS congress goes bananas when their donors might lose a few million in their stock shares due to sloppy accounting because donations to their campaign might go down, but a $60 billion minimum mistake?

And it’s gone on for at least 17 years, while congress ignored accountability to we, the shareholders?

I firmly believe there are a number in congress who benefit from this sloppy accounting. In every agency. So they do little or nothing.

Perhaps if congress demanded better accounting, they would not have to cut the legs off elderly veterans with TDIU.

Someone posted a comment that their Senator said this created a shitstorm. It should be a shithurricane.

Does the VA give a damn about a $60 billion mistake? Hell NO! Because they can always go to the corporate board in congress and ask for more.

There is no human in the land, irregardless of post or title, that can undo corruption once the disease of dishonesty spreads in a bearaucracy from the very top to the lowest denominator.

VA is akin to a really good older spy movie that relied on plot rather than special effects. In a REALLY good spy movie the viewer is completely in the dark about just who the spies are and who poses a danger, only in the end to realize that every single on screen actor is a damn spy and generally defers to the psychopathic side when under stress.

They ALL spy and lie and end in the end, usually in gruesome fashion courtesies of James Bond, they die. He has a license issued for that in his country by his own federal government, so it’s ok, and it makes a damn good movie.

When you look at the actors presented to the public through their deeds in the scripted movie called, “VA, the Golden Years”, then I think the plot is VERY well scripted at VA in terms of entertainment, so this is not an insult at all because like a good Bond movie – all of the characters keep us guessing who the problem has become until we learn it is all of them! Isn’t it exciting?

This has been a problem for a long time. I was charged for an overpayment of checks I never received. Later a Guam Education Head connected to the University got charged for embezzling but I was never forgiven for the checks I never received in 1975-76. Even after I provided an audit of my bank deposits showing the amount I received was less two checks than what I was charged as having recieved.

“Federal Prosecutor Investigating Fraud, Found Dead in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s District”
Carter May 26th, 2017 5:37 pm

“A federal prosecutor’s body was discovered on a Hollywood, Florida beach with potential head trauma.”
Brandon J. Whisenant, Jr.’s body was found Wednesday by a random individual. The police are attempting to determine if Whisenant’s death was a “homicide, suicide, or something else.”

“Hollywood police spokeswoman Miranda Grossman said Thursday that the body of 37-year-old Beranton J. Whisenant Jr. was found early Wednesday by a passerby on the city’s beach. She said detectives are trying to determine if the death was a homicide, suicide or something else.

Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He had joined the office in January. Court records show he had been handling several visa and passport fraud cases.

Acting U.S. Attorney Benjamin G. Greenberg said in a statement that Whisenant was a “great lawyer and wonderful colleague.” The office declined to comment on the investigation.”

Seymore,
The main reason I brought up the video is because it pertains to IT mismanaged monies, all in our government agencies! And how Ben Krause is on top of it.
You, however, have brought more corruption into the fray!
The “prosecutor” found dead here in Florida was, in my opinion, due to his investigations into, not only visas, but voter fraud. Which has been reported widely down here!
I can see you, and a few others, have been “putting the puzzle pieces together” the way I have!
Like I’ve said before, I put out a little information for others to put more pieces together!
Your a hell-of-a-lot better at getting to the bottom of things than I ever was! Thank you for your being able to expose the corruption better than me!
I also believe we’re going to see great changes, and possibly charges, happening in Washington soon!

Angela said it right earlier today.
Maybe we do need someone to “hack into the Veterans Administration computer system”! Maybe then we will know where BILLIONS OF TAXPAYERS DOLLARS have disappeared to for the past 17 to 20 years!
Maybe it’s time for some “computer snooping” to bring the Veterans Administration to its knees!
I really can’t see any other way. Except to do the unthinkable – ie; “Hack the Veterans Administration’s Computers!”
Because I’m pretty sure the money is going offshore!

Seymore Klearly
Seymore Klearly

Elf,

One thing we certainly know for sure is the money is not going where it is needed at the Veterans Administration and yes most of it is going out the holes in the VAs pockets.

What I truly find amazing about this security breach through Wasserman. Is the fact that 49 Democratic members of the house of Representatives put all their emails and information for the Nation at risk by employing these H1B Visa holders. The same Visa Holders now receiving protection from the Pakistani Government and it is known that they did in fact comprise the email systems and files maintained by the 49 representatives.

With the relationship between the Pakistani Government and Saudi Arabia the Saudis now have all that info also.

To believe even for a moment these representatives are not fully compromised and voting in line with the wishes of the King of Saudi Arabia would be foolish.

What utter morons we have in Washington.

The Daily Caller provides a list of the Reps who hired the Pakistani Intelligence services to handle their email and file systems. They really should have hired US Veterans.

There’s must be some real juicy information about those “Congress Critters” for Wasserman-Schultz to threaten the D.C. police chief!

Wouldn’t it be a hoot IF the Awan brothers were to “leak” it to the public!!!!
Surely they, the brothers, have devised a plan for “self preservation” against an “untimely death”, ie: Seth Rich, and a whole lot more! (I do believe this last statement isn’t too far of a reach!)
Seems anyone wanting to testify against the “Clinton Cartel” ends up “face down” somewhere.

Question;
Do you think it’s possible to hack into the Veterans Administration’s IT computer system? Especially the ones which controls the monies?

Seymore, Crazy Elf,

Its interesting they have the Capitol Cleaner Police investigating this nonsense like it’s a minor theft of trinkets rather than the FBI investigating it as the serious national security threat it is.
It tells me there are people on both sides of the aisle that want this kept quiet.

Can anyone recall a serious case in the past 25 years where the Capitol Police actually solved a crime without lots of details being screwed up?

The H1B visa issue is also interesting. How many other entities are compromised because that entity hired an H1B visa holder? Is congress quiet on that detail because they want to protect their lucrative little program of selling Visas for politically connected donors?

I would think a more serious investigation by the FBI might also expose lots of details more formally, and possibly to public scrutiny…which could be very embarrassing to both sides.

@Crazy elf: elf, don’t sell yourself short, your one helluva an investigative researcher in your own rite. I am glad you and Seymore, and 91, and of course Ben,bring so many things to our attention we wouldn’t have otherwise known. I thank all of you for opening my eyes to what you post. Just wish I was capable of putting it all together like you guys. I don’t think I will ever be able to do that.

On another topic…….I sent an email to two organizations asking for help in organizing a march with veterans. I am not sure the email I sent was a good email. I should post it here, so you guys can tell me what you think, and what changes you think I should make to it. If I get no response, I will continue to reach out to all these different march organizers. I think this would be a good time to get a boiler plate email together that everyone likes, instead of leaving it up to me, my mind doesn’t always work like it should. What do you guys think about this?

Or, just simply post a letter you think would be affective in soliciting the help of professional organizers, to help our cause along. I will copy and paste it into a new email to send out. Thank you, in advance.

@”cj”
Here’s a suggestion —-
When you’re on utube, or other websites, and you see something with a “title” that is similar to what Ben is/has discussed, put the information on here! Even if the title is a little off, like the one I put on today about “…a civil war and deep crisis…”! The reason it’s relevant is because of the Awan brothers and their involvement as IT Specialists! And the corruption in Washington D.C.! Which includes the Veterans Administration!

You’ve come up with some great things yourself!
I particularly like your idea of finding someone with balls who could hack into the Veterans Administration’s computer systems! Finding out where all those BILLIONS of taxpayers monies went would be priceless!

On the other hand, I don’t believe any “group” will help us “plan for a march on D.C.!” That’s just my opinion though!
Only don’t give up! Maybe I’m wrong!

Crazy Elf, I wonder if the VA has gotten in on this H1B visa scam.

What an easy way for upper management to control an IT employee with lots of administrative access to systems than having the threat of revoking their visa hanging over them?

If the VA or any other entity actually does employ H1B visa holders, I suspect they have easy access to personal information that could be used for identity theft.

As for marching, the Women’s March was a Soros funded operation for political purposes, so they easily had the funding needed to get many people from across the country to DC quickly, and likely had plenty of money for logistics…lodging, transportation around DC, food, etc.

I see snippets on Twitter where it appears the Women’s March organizers are falling apart from infighting and racial identity politics.

@91Veteran,@Crazy elf: Thanks for the reply, it would figure with the organizational infighting. I will just keep plugging away, they are not the only organizers on the planet. I will give it a couple weeks, of reaching out to different organizers. If no response, I will try to figure it out myself.

I see what you mean elf, about researching, it’s not the research I have trouble with, it’s making sense of what I find. This might sound strange,….although I have very high scoring on IQ testing, and aptitude testing. I am not able to make use of it, as in connecting the dots. It’s hard to explain, I think Lem, and James, know first hand what I’m saying.

Very embarrassing, when you’re talking with someone, and you either struggle with what the next word is, although you do know the proper word that should be used, or you suddenly have no idea, what you were discussing in the first place.

This is part of having a traumatic brain injury racing mind. Our mind thinks faster than our mouth.

So we get confused, especially when more than one person is in evolved. Testing shows how we have short term memory.

It causes symptoms of bipolar. Some people hear this label and they think we are mentally ILL.

We are disabled by trauma to the brain. The VA like other’s use our disability as a means to do what ever they want to us.

Don’t pay no mind what we think, we are labeled as being stupid. I know I am not stupid or I would have never been able to become an administrative assistant.

Persons with this type of disability have to compensate when gathering information. Myself I made my own manuels of what I should know.

Wrote the job step by step to fall back on !

I am usely ok one on one and if I am not pressured and given the time to think things through.

Yes I have said after speaking, what the hell were we talking about and laugh. Hidden wounds a lot of people do not understand…

VA may think we are easy target’s but they are wrong !

Only by the grace of God I am able to be here to tell my story. Being shot point blank in the head, I should not be here !

But I lived only to be shunned by the department of veterans affairs or ignored by them in their greed to save a buck !

40 year’s of Hell before getting treatment and they started attacking me once I won my disability claim.

The employee that reported me as being disruptive is an Evil, Evil person.

Her day will come, I believe what goes around comes around. And I don’t have to retaliate, they do it to themselves !
