John McCain Brian Tumor

One of the most infamous veterans, Senator John McCain (R-Az), rejected free VA surgical services when he instead received surgical treatment at Mayo for emergency brain tumor removal.

Over the past two months, Washington DC insiders have wondered why McCain has behaved so erratically, often tripping on his questioning during hearings. Last week, McCain supposedly needed non-emergent surgery on a blood clot in his cheek.

Yesterday, it was announced McCain received emergency surgery to remove a deadly brain tumor called a glioblastoma during a 3-hour procedure at Mayo Clinic in Arizona.

This kind of brain cancer is generally terminal with a short amount of time between diagnosis and death.

According to the American Brain Tumor Association, this condition is a particularly aggressive tumor. The median survival rate post-diagnosis is 14 months meaning McCain will likely step down from office immediately.

McCain is historically noted as telling veterans it is “foolish” for them to pursue non-VA care while he refuses to receive health care from Phoenix VA. It is important to note Mayo Clinic now refuses to accept Veterans Choice to treat veterans eligible for non-VA care.

Fortunately for McCain and his family, he will now enjoy at least 14 months before passing into the next stage of human spiritual existence.

Brain Cancer Linked To Agent Orange Exposure

While some consider him a hero for his prisoner of war (POW) status in Vietnam, McCain has also been considered a turncoat when it comes to veteran rights, often standing on the wrong side of any debate affecting his fellow veterans.

Ironically, both brain cancer and skin cancer, two conditions he has suffered from, are considered disabilities for which a veteran can receive service connection if they were also exposed to Agent Orange herbicides. (NOTE: glioblastoma is not a presumptive.)

Agent Orange is a generic term that references a host of toxic chemicals used as herbicides during the Vietnam War. There is no doubt McCain was likely exposed to such chemicals while in the military, especially during his internment as a POW for many years.

Post diagnosis, instead of receiving surgical care from the Department of Veterans Affairs, a fate McCain is comfortable with for other veterans, he, as a multi millionaire and 100% disabled veteran, chose to receive his cancer care from the private sector.

So, despite years of VA claiming its health care is top notch, and sometimes even more highly rated than non-VA care, McCain sees through the smoke screen and opts for private care at Mayo.

UPDATE: 7/21/17 – I have received a lot of emails from members of the Facebook group (Vietnam Veterans with Glioblastoma Grade 4 Brain Cancer) about this post alleging that I wrote glioblastoma is on the presumptives list. That is not what I wrote. The term “presumptive” or “presumptives” was never written in this article. It is true that some veterans receive service connection for glioblastoma. Some do not.

McCain Recent Record On Veterans Issues

For many years, McCain has been noted as being a traitor to any advancement of veterans rights despite supporting many wars and conflicts without budgetary care or concern.

RELATED: McCain’s Opposition To Adequate Funding For Veterans

Recently, McCain is noted for failing to act in preventing hundreds of deaths of disabled veterans who were fraudulently denied access to needed health care from Phoenix VA Medical Center.

RELATED: McCain Criticized For Ignoring Phoenix VA Whistleblowers

Before that, he rejected advances in GI Bill benefits citing that servicemembers would leave the military to receive educations. Apparently, McCain did not want educated veterans.

RELATED: CNN – McCain Opposes GI Bill Increase For Veterans

Instead, he would rather force under-educated soldiers, from disadvantaged backgrounds, to stay in the military. His justification at the time was that enhanced education benefits would entice military servicemembers to leave the military.

John McCain Privileged Background

McCain enjoyed a rather entitled life as a child.

His grandfather, John McCain Sr, was an Admiral in the US Navy. McCain’s father was also an Admiral.

After two generations of success, the McCain family had a surprise in store for the establishment when it served up the next iteration.

After graduating from boarding school and then almost dead last form the Naval Academy, McCain showed history who was boss by crashing numerous planes. His flying was so careless that he once crashed into power lines, a feet that would be difficult to repeat without looking stupid.

In Vietnam, he was shot down by a rocket and was severely injured. When captured, he received favorable treatment once his captors realized McCain was a high profile soldier due to his father’s status as an Admiral.

After McCain returned from his POW internment, he divorced the wife (who stood by him the whole time) in favor of blonde bombshell Cindy Lou Hensley, a beer mogul’s daughter more than a decade his younger.

She was heiress to a massive fortune linked to the Anheuser – Busch family.

During the 2008 campaign, his family, through its trusts, was noted by Politico as owning eight properties valued at multiples of millions. Their budget for employees in the home was then noted as being $273,000 per year.

There is no question McCain, good or bad, has enjoyed the fruits of his familial ties. He did not pull himself up by his own bootstraps, though you might think he did from the rhetoric he repeatedly employed through the years that always wound up screwing the little guy.

Good Luck

Before you move on to the afterlife, I hope you repent and correct any wrongs you have orchestrated before you meet your father and grandfather and the Almighty.

There are still many Vietnam veterans and widows still despirately pushing for benefits VA still wrongfully denies. How great would it be if your last act as Senator would be to push for fairness on behalf of all those Vietnam veterans still fighting for justice?

UPDATE: 7/21/2017 – Some readers, but not most, were shocked that I would write an article calling out Senator McCain for not using VA health care or VA surgical services at Phoenix VA Medical Center.

Here’s the deal with this article and why I wrote it.

VA is constantly hyping the quality of its health care for veterans over the private sector. John McCain has not had the most impressive history when it comes to voting in support of veterans issues. But more important than that is Senator McCain knows VA, and he opted for private sector care over VA care. That is really the gist of the article.

Now, I am not attempting to diminish the sadness and hardship all families, including McCain’s, will feel from living through glioblastoma. It is a horrible cancer that harms many veterans after exposure to dioxin.

For these families, including the family of John McCain, I extend my sympathy.

However, I stand by my position that McCain could have and should have done much more for veterans. He is a Senator who weilded unparralleled power in Washington DC. He could have done way more for families suffering from the impacts of herbicide and dioxin exposure including pressuring VA to include glioblastoma on the presumptive list for Vietnam veterans.

I hope this clears up any additional questions.

  1. While I have never ummm…cared for McCain and certainly less so after you’ve revealed numerous skeletons I didn’t realize existed…I wanted him to retire not get cancer. I feel horrible for his daughter (who may have skeletons of her own). Sending prayers for this family. I can’t even begin to imagine.

    • Why care about his kid…he did not care about the vets whos kids did not get to enjoy them healthy and happy. all their lives.besides she will get a trust fund built off the backs and blood of decent hardworking Americans so don’t cry too hard for her…

    • SCREW YO MACAIN YO DO NOTHING FOR VETS AT VA PHOENIX THIS SCANDEL OF DEAD VETS WAS IN YOUR FACE FOR 12 YRS @ YO DID NONTING YO LITTLLE MOUSY RAT GOOD RIDDANCE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Traitor/Mc-insane Mental State has been in Question for sometime and the Brain Tumor just justify his latest Babblings but hes been a Babbler for some years. Maybe this would have been the Only Way to get your Sorry Ass out of the Way of HONORABLE VETS to get the Correct Treatment Needed. Maybe you can pass some of this on to that Other Piece of Shit McConnell who hasnt done a Dam thing for the State of KY but always out Buys his other Competitors…

      • @MK: For the first time ever, I find myself in agreement with you!!

        And look, hell didn’t even have to freeze over..

      • McCain has had a lifetime of “breaks” because his daddy and granddaddy were admirals!

        Royalty birth only takes you so far in this country. We shed the “Crown” in 1776 then took it up again with certain families. Do we keep it no matter what and who get hurt? Lot of homeless veterans continued from WWII and Korea because of his royal highness “McCain” votes. Or did they carry the weight of edicts?

  2. Those VA surgeons will have him looking like a Beluga whale, eqipped with a spout and all.

    Funny how these things become full circle.
    The Senate and Congress needs the same equitable healthcare provisions like any other vete or citizen.

  3. Whenever I hear his name my mind goes to the USS Liberty and how deeply corrupt our government/media and special cliques are. Who really seems to govern our country we are never to dare question or challenge on any topic or issue. And how easily all the components of corruption and evil brain-wash the public and use fake news/fake education to socially engineer us all until something happens to wake us up.

    I have also lost friends due to the same form of brain cancer. All served in Nam. It’s not just mere coincidence.

    Americans need to demand the elite and our representatives use the same health care and clinics we are forced to use..if we can get in. Instead of one set of rules for them and Hollywood, and others for us peons and wage slaves of the Federal Reserve and local entities. Why allow those self professed “leaders” get by with all their special allowances or perks. Equality? Freedom? Leaders leading by example? Ha ha.

    All I have in my heart for people like him, the propagandist to the liars, politicians/media top to bottom, and all the other totally corrupted is righteous indignation. Battle-lines have been drawn both physically/worldly and spiritually.

    Good day all!

  4. It is important to note Mayo Clinic now refuses to accept Veterans Choice to treat veterans eligible for non-VA care…….And I wonder who told them not to…NO pity coming from me for this TURD..Flush him down, JC as slow as a clogged toilet…You get what you give, jon-neee boy…..And no pain med’s for you neither, We don’t want you to get addicted ….

  5. Hypocritical Old Goat (HOG). Mayo Clinic will find his collection of silver spoons shoved up his brain cavity then DOJ will decide today to release O.J. Simpson and replace McCain with O.J. Simpson.

    Ridiculous, right?

    So it is as ridiculous that Sen. John McCain is refusing VA care….but expects all other non-silver spoon bearers to utilize VA Deathcare. I absolutely loathe hypocrites and although I do not wish harm on anyone else, let’s just call this Karma.
    Sen. Lindsey Graham, McCain’s conjoined hypocrite twin is just as much of a silver spoon veteran ass.

    The disconnect seems to fail to be realized by the news media. Had McCain utilized the VA, this would have been an opportune time for McCain to do something good for his fellow Veterans…but most Veterans do not possess ingrown silver spoons.
    Hypocritical Old Goat (HOG), there will be no silver spoon treatments in hell. Satan’s healthcare plan rivals the VA. Rest in piss.

  6. I feel zero sympathy for him. He had a very privileged life for a veteran, while turning his back on millions of other veterans in need. The most troubled VA facility during the 2014 wait list scandal was in his home state, yet he claimed “surprise and outrage”. Surprise? Bullshit. He had ample warning before the scandal broke. There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

    I have lost brothers to slow, lingering painful deaths due to his “veteran friendly” actions as a Senator. He needs to atone for their deaths.

    May he rot, and never find the eternal peace he professes to believe in.

  7. McCain was never a friend to veterans. I suppose the POW experience made him feel so entitled that no one else deserved anything.

    He was with Reagan when entitlements became a dirty name.

    • Va benefits are not entitlements and neither is Social Security! VA benefits were earned from blood sweat and tears. Social Security was paid into for years and was fine until LBJ and the Democrats made it legal to borrow from it! We have paid for 3 wars from it, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

      • Tom, I don’t disagree that veterans benefits should not be considered entitlements, but if you ever heard Congress speak about VA benefits, they constantly lump them together with benefits that most certainly ARE entitlements.

        It’s disgusting.

  8. One last thought.

    Will it surprise anyone when Sen. John McCain eventually passes-on, the VA will magically come-up with a name to slap onto the still-not-quite-finished white elephant Aurora VAMC in Colorado and even though McCain refused to utilize the VA healthcare, John McCain’s name will no doubt be very soon used to slap every Veteran in the face with his namesake slapped onto a brand new over-budgeted VA facility in near future.
    Again, wait for it. I’m betting some VA rats are already conniving on McCain’s namesake as a further white hot poker up every Veteran’s ass. Pretty sure many of his wife’s family beer brewing factories just happen to be in….Colorado. Wait for it… “John McCain Brain Cancer Ward @ Aurora VAMC….coming soon….

      • Right, and The Mayo Clinic would still not accept that breed of ‘Choice’.

        Meanwhile, that Somali cop in Minneapolis that shot that Australian woman is refusing to speak to detectives. Oh, and O.J. is free to try, try again. It will not be long before he’s in the news again. Wait for it… Maybe the VA will hire him to head their Disruptive Behavior Committee? 🙂

      • Minneapolis policeman goes over a locked 7ft privacy fence to get into a backyard. 2 dogs come out to see what’s going on. The officer shoots both dogs. Both dogs are alive both dogs are physician-prescribed emotional support animals. Will this cop claim the Ambush Fear too.

    • namnibor,
      IF a VHA anywhere puts a “sign” up calling a “wing” of that VHA the “McCain Ward”. I hope someone comes along and throws pig blood all over it!
      Yea, in a fowl mood over someone who doesn’t deserve the accolades he’s received today!

      • I have no complaints of his service as a Navy flyer or POW. At least there are no recorded complaints about his POW time.

        But he doesn’t pass muster as a Senator and especially as a Senate VA Committee member.

  9. Ben you stated “Fortunately for McCain and his family, he will now enjoy at least 14 months before passing into the next stage of human spiritual existence.”

    Sorry to have to correct you on that one, but;

    Due to McCain’s advanced age he falls into the category of greater than 65 years of age at time of diagnosis. The Median survival time in months for greater than 65 years of age is 7.22 months. Even with all the bells and whistles health care he can buy.

    Also as you pointed out McCain’s noted abnormal behavior around Washington during the last several months. One of the noted episodes was McCain’s questioning of James Comey on June 8th, 2017 that stands out. See: “WATCH: Everyone Is Talking About John McCain’s Bizarre Questioning To James Comey” (FNN) Published on Jun 8, 2017. At: “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0V_7PR4dYI”

    It is hard to believe that as dysfunctional as he was that he wasn’t already seeing a doctor and been diagnosed back then.

    Let’s just say he has at most 4 months remaining before he is being punked all over hell by Sadam.

    Of course it isn’t like McCain doesn’t have a few connections already there. Maybe that is why he went to meet with ISIS back in February. See Photo at: “http://groundreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/mccain-isis.jpg”

    • McCain only met with ISIS directly in order to go directly to the Opium/Heroin connection and skip all the middlemen taking a cut, literally. Since the VA would certainly not want to give any pain meds since the VA will rely on Frankenstein Science and lean heavily on old belief that the brain cannot actually feel pain…so McCain went directly to the poppy fields to ensure his harem of virgins were waiting for him in hell.

      “McCain Brain Pain”….might just be a new song I shall write this week. 🙂

    • I saw that photo when it first came out, And the movie set of the fake isis beheading’s john mcain’s aid took
      a video of..just another cia production company….for the great American smoke screen for more war.

      THE GREAT BOOGIE MAN NEVER SLEEPS…[cia] …..OOOOO those evil Muslims… Are our own politicians…LOL

  10. I have spent many a day(and Night), wondering why and HOW Mr. McCain could turn his back on and have the ideas about veterans the way he did. Maybe that tumor has been there all along? But I can NOT and will NOT take myself to that place of indignity by cursing a dieing human being. I think we all might look back at some of our decisions and wonder “Where the hell did I come up with that?” I am not a fan. But I REFUSE to let that HATE enter my soul. All I will say is, Rest Mr. McCain. and ponder some of your decisions. !PEACE!

    • I understand where your coming from, but in my opinion that is like giving sympathy to the devil…Just think of all the decisions he made pushing for war, and all the innocent people that, KILLED …KARMA IS A BITCH

  11. Hey Senator McCain,
    Please remember all of us Agent Orange Veterans of Guam, their dependents, and the Guamanian/Chamorro people who by the way are US citizens that are being denied justice for Agent Orange exposure on Guam for almost 20 years.

    Will Dow Chemical be picking up your deductibles and other out of pocket expense’s on your medical coverage? After all you did take many campaign contributions from Dow Chemical or will it be Monsanto?

    Senator please let us know how those “Entitlements” work out for you….
    Semper Fidelis,
    Brian Moyer

    • You left out 2 that I know of Brian, south Korea, Okinawa and I’m sure there are plenty more than that… That’s like the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry study on Camp Lejeune compared to A comparison group from Camp Pendleton, so your going to compare 2 toxic sites to each other, BRILLIANT IDEA, FOR THE SCAM.
      Should have done a study on the difference between two peanuts , same results… BULLSHIT
      And then you get the stupid fucks would say they [government] wouldn’t do that to UUUUUSSSSSSSS
      WE ARE JUST ONE BIG EXPERIMENT TO THESE MAD SCIENTISTS TRYING TO KILL US OFF WITH THE MOST AMOUNT OF PAIN

    • 7 yrs My husband has been trying to get his Disability from being exposed in Vietnam ,finally it has just been sent from Alabama to Washington DC and now they have a appointed the VFW to represent him in Montogmery, Alabama now waiting for the VFW to read over all the files my husband has then goes back to Washington DC ..he’s 80 yrs old ,has Alzheimer’s, Coronary heart Disease, PMSS. Hopefully they will do the right thing as it spent 1965 to 1972 I believe in Vietnam. Hard to remember exact date at my age. Good Luck to all veterans.

  12. All paths lead to God. Even John McCain’s. I wish he could answer to the families of those Veterans he has harmed or played a major role in the Veteran’s demise. Appropriately, he will die as he lived. A hypocrite and a coward. His legacy will be packed with lies, cover-ups and failures. I’ll be thinking of him while I go to the VA today. For a minute. God Bless the Veterans and their families. One less obstacle.

  13. Like I said yesterday, I’ve never wanted to wish harm on anyone. But, in the case of “Songbird McCain”, I believe I’ll make one exception!

    I want McCain to experience the horrendous pain MANY other veterans have had to deal with! Including my “brother” “Hangman” (“heavy ’81’ supporter!”)!

    Many on here have probably googled about McCain. I’ve put the “title” on before. Just in case anyone hasn’t seen, or read, anything, here it is again.
    Titled;
    “Navy Releases McCain’s Records”
    It concerns his “deliberate actions” while onboard the USS FORESTALL three months BEFORE he was shot down in North Vietnam!
    Later, after McCain became a Senator. He, and Traitorous John Kerry, kept anyone from receiving information, (records), about “pow’s and mia’s!” They did so to keep their records “sealed”! That, ladies and gentlemen is historical fact! What is it these two reprobates don’t want America to find out about them and their military service?

    There’s lots of reasons why veterans wouldn’t give a shit about McCain. Especially, since it was in his district the “VA Scandal of 2014” came to light! It showed just how corrupt McCain was against veterans! He allowed hundreds of veterans to die! I hope they’re waiting for him!

    • P.S.
      The next question is,

      “Who will take over for “Songbird McCain” once he resigns his cabinet position?”

      • “What happens if McCain resigns?””
        Dylan Smith
        “TucsonSentinel.com”
        Jul 19, 2017

        “With U.S. Sen. John McCain facing a diagnosis of malignant brain cancer, what happens to Arizona’s seat in the U.S. Senate if he steps down, or dies in office?

        While the U.S. Constitution mandates that vacancies in the House of Representatives be filled by elections, it leaves to each state how to fill empty seats in the Senate.

        In Arizona, the governor appoints an interim senator in the case of a vacancy. That senator serves through the next scheduled statewide general election, with the winning candidate in that vote serving the remainder of the original term in office, unless the original term was set to expire at that election.”

        “The interim appointee must be of the same party as the vacating senator.

        In McCain’s case, if he were to resign this year, Gov. Doug Ducey would appoint a Republican to take the seat through November 2018. There would be an election held in November 2018 to determine who would hold the seat through the end of 2022, when the seat would return to its regular six-year cycle of terms.”

        “Complicating the politics of the situation in Arizona is the other Senate seat. U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake’s term ends next year, raising the prospect of there being two Senate elections taking place at the same time.”

        Full article at: “http://www.tucsonsentinel.com/local/report/071917_mccain_resign/what-happens-if-mccain-resigns/”

        Honestly though there is a lot McCain can continue to screw up for our county so he will not be resigning until he is forced to.

      • (dark humor warning)

        Easily replaced with one of the old farts in the balcony on ‘The Muppet Show’. Choice is between Waldorf or Statler.

      • Maybe it is about time for Dick Cheney to take him on a little bird hunting trip in Texas. That might cure his cancer!

  14. Seymore,
    During the last election in Arizona, a female (can’t remember her name) gave McCain a great run for his money!
    Hopefully the governor will appoint her! She made it a point, during her campaign, to point out McCain’s inability/refusal to hold the VHA in Phoenix accountable! Hopefully she wasn’t using that, and veterans, as an “excuse” to get elected!
    I believe she’s a physician or something to do with medical out there!

    Anyway, I pray the governor will appoint someone with strength to hold VA employees accountable!

    • Crazy elf – – – That would be Dr. Kelli Ward. She was very vocal about McCain’s refusal to hold the Phoenix VHA accountable for their actions.

      More on her here: “http://www.wildcat.arizona.edu/article/2016/02/meet-dr-ward-the-woman-who-wants-to-go-head-to-head-against-mccain-in-senate”

      • Thanks James.
        She was VERY vocal about McCain and his refusal to hold VA employees accountable.

    • Sorry to have to say this but it will be a “Rod Blagojevich” kind of appointment since it is in Arizona. Were the seat goes to the highest bidder. Another part of McCain’s legacy.

      • You do remember that McCain was stumping for Clinton in the last election going against Trump.

    • “The Mike Broomhead Show” (15 min. segment) worth your time listening. He’s right – Sen. Kelli Ward is “despicable”, and the fact that she is a M.D. makes what she said even worse. Fortunately she is showing her true colors here. This is a moral compass situation – Kelli’s is completely missing. Also, by no means do you need to be a fan of McCain to understand this one – you just need to be a decent human being who expects more from politicians, or anyone for that matter. http://kfyi.iheart.com/onair/mike-broomhead-13345/broomhead-reacts-to-dr-ward-saying-15994804/#.WXZSlkMwdTE.facebook

  15. This is not anything new. Louis Stokes, who has a VA Hospital named after him in Cleveland, also rejected free treatment at his VA Hospital. Having firsthand experience with having to fight through so much red tape and jump through so many hoops, only to be rejected by the VA to use the Choice Program for my own cancer treatments, then appealing to Veterans groups, Senators, and Congressmen for their support, this goes to prove that as long as people like McCain, serving their own interests, are in Washington there will never be justice for the common Veteran. Seriously, how long have Veterans, and Veteran groups been trying to get ADEQUATE healthcare? Why does Congress always fall short on this issue?

  16. My life after Naum is nothing but hell,, I can’t come to any feeling for Mc Cain cancer,,, nor can I for all other betrayers as John Kerry,, who leaves his vets to live as and get health care of the lowest form of care,,,I only give Forgivness to those as what the Lord says how in 2 Thessalonians chapter 5 verses 12 thru 15,,, its the only forgivness I can give,,, to real jerks,,,,,

  17. I think I’m going to hold a “John McCain is dead” keg party. Maybe we could turn his grave into an annual pilgrimage. Kind of like a Haj except it’s only veterans and instead of paying tribute or homage to this self serving prick, we get to unlimber our members and piss in his dead face.

    • I would have to come with a hammer and chisel to put my two cent’s worth on that Tombstone…And a belly full of beer piss…..Cruel…NO …Just returning the favor

    • Whereever they bury him there is going to a major problem with erosion caused by a never ending yellow river.

    • It’s too bad he’ll probably be buried in Arlington as a “national hero”. Although, if that’s the case, we can then hook up Arlington to the national electric grid and harvest all the energy from all the real veterans and hero’s spinning in their graves.

  18. Since we’re discussing poor, inadequate, horrific, unsustainable bullshit from VA today, here’s three articles out from “military.com/daily news”!
    1.)
    “Bill Would Expand Healthcare for Vets With ‘Bad Paper’ Discharges”

    “Military.com” | by Amy Bushatz

    (The VA can’t take care of the Veterans enrolled now.)

    “House Lawmakers Propose 6 Months of Funding for VA Choice”

    19 July 2017
    “Stars and Stripes” | by Nikki Wentling

    (OK, I’ve got an idea. Why doesn’t our so-called reprobates in Congress tell our Justice Department to force Healthnet to give back the billions of dollars they stole from veterans healthcare! That would fund Choice for a long time!)
    ____________________________

    3.)
    “U.S. Vets Offered Free Mental Health Care Through Burgeoning Nonprofit”

    19 July 2017
    via: Fox News | by Casey Stengall.

    Now, it looks like outside healthcare is getting rich off of veterans and taxpayers!

  19. The VA will lose a POWERFUL ally in McCain. This sort of horrible event may one day lead to cooked chicken in the VA hospital and ONLY theraputic maggots and cockroaches in VA halls as envisioned in the mission statement. Although, I must say that cooked chicken might tend to encourage and incentivize vets to stay in treatment longer (at least the uneducated ones) and further burden a system already withering on the vine like hippos in a dry pond.

    It occurs to me that maybe John made the right choice for treatment. After all, his dreadful disease has got to do with a brain specialty, and when it comes to brains the VA simply has no real experience. The man is worthy of prayer but to the Senator I send this farewell; may your journey to heaven be as straight as the crow flies and tell them when you get there that you have a Choice voucher…

    See if they accept what the Mayo Clinic won’t?

  20. I have never considered McCain a Veteran’s Veteran. He has always waddled on Veteran issues, while at the same time talking the big talk. But one one thing I do agree, I would not want the VA doing any surgery on my brain or any other part of my body. I’ve been there ( surgery at the VA) and I have never had a good outcome! Besides the fact he has government employees health insurance, and is entitled to care at Military Hospitals (ie: Walter Reed or any other military facility) or care under tricare and Medicare…… So bitch about him when it comes to his true colors ie: RINO, but leave the guy alone when it comes to his medical care. By the way, if anyone thinks being a Military Brat is leading a privileged life you ought to have your own head examined. The last paragraph of the article, damn talking about kicking a man when he is down… the puke who wrote this ought to be shot.

    • Why leave him alone regarding his medical care? Seems to me his diagnosis and “choice” of treatment brings the issue front and center. According to Songbird the VA system is fine and dandy for the rank and file so why isn’t it good enough for him? Oh that’s right, because it’s NOT fine and dandy for ANYBODY except the grossly incompetent and lazy AFGE union pukes. I’m sorry for the way you feel but in regards to McCain, NOTHING is off limits and I for one will be celebrating his death which will hopefully be slow and painful.

      • @Wyldechylde

        Your comments indicate that you do have not even the basic compassion for a human being. You should be ashamed for celebrating his or any persons death. But I am learning quickly that most users of this board are ignorant, boring, whiners that have absolutely no life at all, so bask in the pain of others and just love the negative comments that are posted on this board, and who look to their daily posting of insults, and negativity.

      • No one is wishing McCain an early demise. They are just wishing that he would have used his position to interdict the early demise of so many veterans that passed before him. Many with the same diagnosis that he is benefiting from early diagnosis and, at least $ wise, purported to be the best care available to anyone.

        And then when it comes to compensation, not hold his POW years as the standard for disability compensation plus his ability, as a category I, officer, to rise above his military experience and attain a high profile job that any grunt category III with equivalent disabilities, finds themselves at less than 50% compensated compared to McCain’s 100% politically awarded compensation plus top paying jobs.

    • RICH B…I have probably told you before, go fuck yourself, if that’s to hard to do than tell your wife to strap one on……..

      • I second that go fuck yourself and all the VSO piggies you roll with funny hats that would defend the traitor rather than hold the old goat and his silver spoon kind accountable for NOT using their unique positions to betterment of fellow Veterans.

        McCain has never been a Veteran’s Veteran. Silver spoons and platinum palaces cause convenient blinders of Rome burring in McCain’s hindsight and his very State he supposedly represented.

        Fuck Yourself, Rick B and all the Piggies with eyes closed wide-open.

      • Its idiots like you that make me wonder why Mr. Krause hasn’t set up some standards on this board. Also, don’t tell anyone but your ignorance is showing….

    • No. I will bitch about his privilege all I want since I go to the VA and he chooses not to.

      He is a major reason for veterans facing lousy care when it comes to the VA. He is a major reason for the corruption, incompetence and lack of accountability at every level of the VA.

      I have earned the right to take a giant shit on those responsible.

      • @91Veteran
        If you really believe that one man ( McCain) is a major reason for the VA being screwed up then you have a real problem its called reality and not knowing the different between it and fantasy. Factually, he is but a very small part of the problem, and by his self he cannot do anything to improve the problems at the VA. And while I have never though him to be a Veteran’s advocate, he certainly isn’t the cause of the problems at the VA. Earth calling 91Veteran come back to earth…..

      • Rick, McCain has had seniority and the stature in the Senate for many years to help veterans, but in every instance he has ignored veterans, or has made things worse.

        At some point you would think he would advocate for better veteran health care since throughout his career, he has constantly called for boots on the ground in shitholes around the world, but he has not.

        I have mentioned this before here, but years ago when I was at a congressional hearing on Gulf War Illnesses, when veterans testified, the hearing room was almost empty. When the hearing was over and I walked down the hall, I found out why. McCain was in another hearing on cable TV rates, and when I looked in the room, it was standing room only with all the media. McCain didn’t give a shit about veterans, but he wanted to put on a good show while squeezing cable companies.

        I could overlook some of that since he is, as you say, just one Senator…but I will not given his despicable actions towards POWs and their families.

        His actions since then are his, and the reason for my low opinion of him.

        In fact, he reminds me of many VA doctors who will miss the cancer a veteran has while telling the veteran it’s just the flu.

        McCain, like those VA doctors are more than willing to piss down a veterans neck and tell them it’s raining.

        Do I wish for his suffering and death? No. But I also will not fake sympathy for him. He has shown no sympathy whatsoever for his fellow veterans.

    • Rich B – – – No one ever said that being a Military Brat was leading a privileged life. Let us review a few of the facts concerning this man’s stellar service to our nation:

      While stationed aboard USS Forrestal in July 1967, a fire broke out. An electrical anomaly had caused the discharge of a Zuni rocket on the flight deck, triggering a chain-reaction of explosions that killed 134 sailors and injured 161. At the time, Forrestal was engaged in combat operations in the Gulf of Tonkin, during the Vietnam War. The ship survived, but with damage exceeding US$72 million (equivalent to $517 million today), not including the damage to aircraft. Future United States Senator John McCain and future four-star admiral and US Pacific Fleet Commander Ronald J. Zlatoper were among the survivors.

      Lt. Cmdr. McCain was known for conducting “hot starts” of his aircraft. A Zuni rocket pod experienced an electrical surge, and ignited. The surge, and a missing rocket safety pin, which would have prevented the fail surge, as well as a decision to plug in the “pigtail” system early to increase the number of takeoffs from the carrier, allowed the rocket to launch.

      The rocket flew across the flight deck, striking a wing-mounted external fuel tank on an A-4E Skyhawk awaiting launch, aircraft No. 405 from VA-46, piloted by Lieutenant Commander Fred D. White. The Zuni rocket’s warhead safety mechanism prevented it from detonating, but the impact tore the tank off the wing and ignited the resulting spray of escaping JP-5 fuel, causing an instantaneous conflagration. Within seconds, other external fuel tanks on White’s aircraft overheated and ruptured, releasing more jet fuel to feed the flames, which began spreading along the flight deck.

      The impact of the rocket had also dislodged two of the 1000-lb AN-M65 bombs, which fell to the deck, and lay in the pool of burning fuel between White’s aircraft and that of Lieutenant Commander John McCain.

      Damage Control Team No. 8 swung into action immediately, and Chief Gerald Farrier, recognizing the risk, and without the benefit of protective clothing, immediately smothered the bombs with a PKP fire extinguisher in an effort to knock down the fuel fire long enough to allow the pilots to escape. The pilots, still strapped into their aircraft, were immediately aware that a disaster was unfolding, but only some were able to escape in time. McCain, pilot of A-4 Skyhawk side No. 416, next to White’s, was among the first to notice the flames, and escaped by scrambling down the nose of his A-4 and jumping off the refueling probe shortly before the explosions began.

      Damage Control Team No. 8 had been assured of a 10-minute window in which to extinguish the fire and prevent the bombs from detonating, but the Composition B bombs proved to be just as unstable as the ordnance crews had initially feared; after only slightly more than one minute, despite Chief Farrier’s constant efforts to cool the bombs, the casing of one suddenly split open and began to glow a bright red.

      The Chief, recognizing that a lethal cook-off was imminent, shouted for his team to withdraw, but the bomb detonated seconds later — one minute and 36 seconds after the start of the fire.

      The detonation destroyed White’s and McCain’s aircraft, along with their remaining fuel and ordnance, blew a crater in the armored flight deck, and sprayed the deck and crew with bomb fragments and burning fuel. Damage Control Team No. 8 took the brunt of the initial blast; Chief Farrier and all but three of his men were killed instantly; the survivors were critically injured. Lieutenant Commander White had managed to escape his burning aircraft, but was unable to get far enough away in time; White was killed along with the firefighters in the first bomb explosion. In the tightly packed formation on the deck, the two nearest A-4s to White’s and McCain’s (both fully fueled and bomb-laden) were heavily damaged and began to burn, causing the fire to spread and more bombs to quickly cook off.

      This was OUR HERO’s FIRST GREAT ACT OF SERVICE! Three months later, he was shot down and captured by the NVA.

      The impression that McCain and the media has attempted to portray of McCain’s 5 1/2 years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam is about as far from the truth that one could possibly go. McCain, from the first moments of his capture, had behaved as a COLLABORATOR and propaganda tool for his North Vietnamese captors. McCain had engaged in no less than 30, and likely as many as 38 anti-American propaganda broadcasts for Radio Hanoi during the period of his captivity.

      Far from the image of a dedicated American “hero” sweating it out in a North Vietnamese prisoner’s “hotbox” for 5 1/2 years, McCain was often given “special” treatment by his captors, who were fully aware of his father’s and grandfather’s 4 star admiral positions with the Navy.

      No one has ever witnessed McCain’s supposed “torture” at the hands of his jailers. The consensus opinion of other POWs in McCain’s camps was that McCain was NEVER tortured by the North Vietnamese. McCain’s disgraceful and wholly reprehensible conduct (along with John Kerry) during the 1991-93 Senate Committee on POW/MIAs leaves no doubt that McCain is a traitor to this country and its veterans .

      Then, of course – – – Johnny Boy campaigns and has a very STELLAR career in the U.S. Senate. One of the GREAT HIGHLIGHTS was the Phoenix VHA wait list scandal – – – the fallout from that is still being felt by many living veterans today in Phoenix. Now though, they are being RIMA’d rather than McCAIN’d.

      Some Hero. NOT!

      • There is one thing that’s unclear in the article near the beginning. Are you saying that the rocket pod which malfunctioned was on Songbird’s aircraft, and, due to pilot negligence and ignorance in the safe operation of a combat fighter caused the deaths and injuries of hundreds of his fellow servicemen? Sounds like McCain was the best fighter the north ever had.

      • Wyldechylde – – – “due to pilot negligence and ignorance in the safe operation of a combat fighter caused the deaths and injuries of hundreds of his fellow servicemen?”

        I am saying that when Grandpa and Dad BOTH wear four stars in the Navy, that they can help to “alter the course” of a family members career. The Navy has its’ own peculiar politics . . .

        “Sounds like McCain was the best fighter the north ever had.”

        Not sure on that. But not too difficult a stretch. Could very well be. Or at least in the TOP 10.

      • Wyldechylde – – – Damn Neuropathy! Fingers worn out. There is a reason Johnny Boy has often been referred to as “Matchstick McCain” by many veterans.

      • First:
        To James Clement,
        Thanks for expanding the true story behind “Songbird McCain’s” miserable existence while onboard the USS FORESTALL!
        Also, from what I’ve read, those “500lb bombs” weren’t really safe to use on the aircraft McCain and others flew. In the articles I’ve read, the Captain of the Forrestall was aware that overloading the planes was risky for the pilots!
        Also, McCain was given a “blanket pardon” by our most corrupt President, at that time, by “Tricky Dicky Nixon!”
        So FUCK MCCAIN AND HIS WHOLE FUCKIN FAMILY!
        ___________________

        Secondly:
        To: “Rich B”
        Go back to your mommies basement! Take McCain with you IF you love his traitorous ass so fuckin much.
        McCain is a fuckin traitorous pig, worthy of nothing except supplying our fuckin enemies with whatever he can.
        TROLL!

      • Crazy elf – – – Right you are! Tricky Dick pardoned McCaint for the crime of Treason that he was charged and convicted of. I imagine had that singular event not happened, we would have all been spared Senator Maverick McCaint the Veterans friend.

        Thanks for jolting my brain, elf. Had forgotten about the POTUS pardon until you mentioned it.

    • Hey Ricky Bitch,

      Your back! Sorry forgot, what is it you said you do for a living. Wasn’t something to do with your work as a fluffer boy at some gay porn studio that specializes in rimjobs?

      If you’re here looking for some of that fluffy stuff you can gobble down before heading in to work. You have come to the wrong place again. No matter how much you come here waggle your tongue, no one is interested in your services. No doubt all the talk of yellow rivers flowing on McCain’s grave got you excited and you just had to try waggling your tongue to see if there were any takers.

      You might just as well head in to work nothing for you here.

      • To “Wyldechylde”
        When McCain “Wet Started” his aircraft, which caused a fireball out the rear, it caused the rocket on the plane behind him to FIRE off!
        It’s also, important to note here, after this “…worst accident in naval history, after WWII, the navy put safeguards in place to stop pilots from “wet starting” their aircraft!”
        Does this clear up the issue?!

    • Rich,

      In regards to using words to “kick a man when he is down”, clearly to me you have never been pinned down by somebody intent on killing you and it is a pretty big leap of imagination to believe that harsh words have any impact on good ol John any more than an autographed edition of Winnie The Pooh and The Hundred Acre Wood has on him (second edition, first printing).

      But let me pose a retort for your consideration;

      How many people in John McCain’s political career as a senior walking dust ediface in the Senate do you think that he has “kicked in the teeth”, or “pissed in their cornflakes”, or “kicked em when they are down”, in order to gather more personal power to himself and his family name (a family who held onto power clearly for ONE generation too long)? Do you suppose, Rich, that good ol John burned his friends, supporters, peers, and constituents less than any other moldy Senator who made it to the very top?

      If a horse gets that sick we used to use Mr. Smith and Wesson to bring mercy. You suggest using the great equalizer to silence our good author who points out there is shit inside the nice painted barn after all and a whole lot of it comes from boy cows. In coming to the moral aid of a United States Senator who farts dust in tune to the Star Spangled Banner and whom has enriched himself beyond the dreams of most mortal men purely on the back of the US taxpayer, your intentions may be noble but just about it…

      Do you pity him more than an uneducated homeless vet digging through the dumpster? Do you pity him more than the vets down at the VA hospital across town from the Mayo clinic? Why don’t you go volunteer down at the VA mental ward for a few days? Then ask to tour the civilian mental health ward. I have toured both kinds as a customer. The thoughts of one of those places still makes me want to vomit.

      Report back on pity when you see what good ol John calls equivelent care and then keep talking about getting kicked when you are down.

    • Chill they have every right to speak on health care. Or as it’s nickname deathcare. Where u been? Laundry room training. Don’t agree with bashing the death issue of McCain.

    • It is called news, and I was unaware of all this disgrace of VA that it has been known all along. It’s ridiculous that it takes an act of the press to expose what already should of been. WTF close it. Cause certainly can’t manage it. Peace to McCain family.

  21. Perhaps Traitor John McCain did go to the VA earlier for some kind of evaluation and check up, could be why he didn’t know he had this tumor. The VA specialist just missed it. He went somewhere a couple months ago. Thought I heard he was just over worked or tired. Sounds like a VA diagnosis. If he doesn’t resign immediately, I would be surprised. Not shocked, just surprised. At least ALL of them have a choice, and all kinds of taxpayers supplied benefits. The lowest VA employee, the most crooked, the thieves, the murderers and the fake Dr’s all have more and better health care options than our bravest heroes. Just don’t make sense.

    • Yea, I have the same thoughts over McCain.
      Because I thought, it had been reported, he only had some “…small blood clot above his eye, and the minor surgery went fine!”
      Guess the VHA was wrong again!

  22. [email protected]

    none of the political whores and or upper echelon administrative veterans has anything to do with the VA when it comes to health care. They want the best there is and refuse to be experimented on

  23. There can be no clearer testament to the incompetence of the VA than this evil bastard choosing to not go there for care.

    Like so many other politicians or politically connected hacks claiming to represent veterans.

    The VA lies repeatedly about being such good care for veterans, but if that were the case, why would so many mentioned above never set foot in one?

    McCain evil? Overly harsh? Not at all. Given how he has treated POW families and his fellow veterans, hell, even his first wife, it’s an apt description.

    He has shown zero sympathy for the plight of so many over so many years, I refuse to muster any sympathy in return.

      • May I bring a herd of goats to also piss on the grave while at the keg party? The goats will easily and happily recycle the trash making it an environmental win/win, while the ground gets ample fertilizer. 🙂

      • I don’t see why not we can get the goats to take a massive shit on his grave then plant a crop of cannabis at least he’ll finally be good for something because we all know he can’t fly a plane worth a damned.

        I’m also thinking of party games like “Pin the glioblastoma on the asshole” maybe even a McCain pinata but I can’t think off the top of my head what to fill it with. Can’t use guts, or a spine, or hell even basic human fucking kindness, although if any VSO’s want to show up to take a swing we could fill it with shit 😀

      • Don’t know Wyldechylde any plants grow from the decomp of that swamp gas infected body of his my be pretty deformed. Certainly not safe for human consumption by any means.

      • meh, then we plant hemp and use it for bio fuel. Two birds, one stone. cleaner environment and pisses McCain off even further 😀

  24. Here is one for McCain.

    “America Is More Religious Than Other Countries Due To Its Proximity To The Gates Of Hell”
    “http://www.theonion.com/video/america-more-religious-other-countries-due-its-pro-55803”

  25. I don’t agree with this. This is not general care for hypertension or having a common surgical procedure. When people have difficult cancer diagnoses, it’s not unusual to try to seek out ‘the best in the field’. Patients flock to MD Anderson and Mayo and other institutions that see more volume instead of staying in their home city. People I have known to seek out outside opinions and specialized care include teachers, physical therapists, and receptionists. I don’t know the state of neurosurgery at the local VA in Arizona but not all VAs offer neurosurgical services and some of those that do see a low volume of glioblastomas. I’m not going to criticize this choice. I’ve helped deal with two very difficult cancers in close family members. Difficult cancers and especially those that need surgery need expertise. Once this happens to a close family member or friend, you will understand.

    By the way, I worked in a VA. I found that the vets at that particular institution got great surgical care. VAs differ across the country. And, just like in the private sector, quality of care can be deeply dependent on the particular physician you are seeing.

    And finally, please show some compassion for a fellow human who is grappling with a terminal illness. Whether or not you have agreed with him, he has served America in many ways for the entirety of his adult life.

    • McCain has served America in many ways….

      The only things Mr Matchstick has served is in the following order.

      His Ego.
      His Thirst for power.
      His Wallet

      As far as having compassion for somebody with a brain tumor I have compassion all the time. Unless that person is a power hungry self absorbed mass murderer like Johnny McCain.

      The bottom line on this guy is simple “If the VA is so fucking great for the little guy why is Johnny boy going to the Mayo clinic. It’s called Hypocrisy and now that McCain is going in the ground in relatively short order, one of the great lies is exposed.

      Call me sick and twisted if you want, I do have PTSD so you could be on to something. But I for one am glad there isn’t a surgeon on the planet that can save this asshole. That’s my opinion, I’m entitled to it, if you don’t like it then get the fuck out.

    • If Hitler was dying from cancer, should we show compassion too?

      In this world, there’s good and evil. I don’t have compassion for evil.

      I believe in heaven and hell. I believe in a ‘just’ God. In other words, those who done evil are gonna get their judgement when they meet their Maker.

      Someone doing evil in this world being allowed to go to heaven by virtue of simply being on this planet is illogical.

      At the VA we have a nasty combo of veterans, politicians and other “sub-human beings” who gain money (from a GS-5 to SES, from VSOs to Senator) off of lies, corruption and harm to veterans and their loved ones…

      I have no compassion for evil…

      • Does anyone think the VA would refer a 100% Disabled private with the same condition to any Mayo?

        I think everyone is pretty consistent on their views on this thread. McCain’s votes and bills introduced show his true color.

    • It happens I’ve heard va can do good on surgical procedures. That’s not the major issue. Corruption is. It takes money to feed corruption. Then that good surgery that is needed is not there. Don’t forget it takes compassion to run a medical organization. Corruption and compassion oil and water.

    @BenjaminKrause … Ben, I faithfully read your wonderful, informative posts daily. I applaud your tireless efforts to be of service and support of the nation’s veterans and to shed the cleansing power of sunlight upon the glaring continual failures of the despicable VA.

    In the interest of accuracy, I offer the following: Firstly, as an Air Force veteran, of all people, you should know the difference between a rocket and a Surface to Air Missile (SAM), which shot down US Naval aviator John McCain over North Vietnam.

    Secondly, John McCain flew a Navy A-4 Skyhawk ground attack aircraft over North Vietnam from the flight deck of the USS Forrestal CV-59. There is no record of John McCain setting foot on South Vietnam. There is also no record of Agent Orange being sprayed upon North Vietnam. In fact, the USS Forrestal did not have aircraft aboard suitable for spraying Agent Orange.

    It is extremely doubtful that there were ever any drums of Agent Orange aboard the Forrestal. Space was at a premium aboard the carriers. Agent Orange was transported to South Vietnam aboard cargo ships.

    John McCain quite probably had zero exposure to Agent Orange.

    Regarding Senator McCain’s career as a naval aviator, he was strapped into the cockpit of an A-4 Skyhawk on the flight deck of the USS Forrestal CV-59 in July 1967. His Skyhawk was fully loaded with bombs, Zuni Rockets and auxiliary fuel tanks, prepared to take off to bomb Hanoi. There was a catastrophic incident involving McCain and his Skyhawk that day. Another aircraft behind McCain on the flight deck experienced an accidental firing of a Zuni Rocket. Another fully armed aircraft on deck was struck and its 400 gallon external fuel tank was blown off onto the flight deck and ignited. McCain is on a video, climbing down to the carrier deck from the nose of his burning Skyhawk.

    The resulting conflagration of thousands of gallons of jet fuel, exploding bombs on the deck, and the spontaneous firing of many Zuni Rockets turned the deck of the Forrestal into Hell on the South China Sea.

    The result was the carrier was nearly lost, except for the incredible bravery of her crew. 134 sailors died that day and 161 were wounded. In today’s dollars, CV-59 sustained $517 million in damages, not including damage to aircraft.

    A friend of mine was a young Marine aboard the Forrestal that day, serving as an Admiral’s guard. He was awarded the Silver Star for his heroism in saving many lives and for his role in helping save the Forrestal herself.

    He retired from the military as a Colonel. He now has a post-graduate degree in counselling as a social worker. He continues to serve today by supporting suffering veterans as the co-founder of Battle Buddies in southern Maryland.

    As for my opinion of John McCain, I have seriously conflicting emotion. I honor Naval Aviator John McCain’s service to his nation as a descendent of a WWII Navy Admiral. Sen. McCain was subjected to unimaginably horrific torture while surviving 5 years in the Hell Hole of the Hanoi Hilton. He certainly has my deepest respect for that.

    As a civilian politician, I have zero respect for Senator John McCain. In 1982, I watched a Senate Conference Hearing on those veterans Missing In Action on C-Span. The hearing was the result of the work of an investigative journalist who worked for the Seattle Post Intelligencer (if I remember correctly).

    Senators McCain and Hanoi John Kerry were both incredibly rude and dismissive to the families of those service personnel who were MIA. I was totally appalled at how viciously rude McCain was to those poor, suffering family members. I will never forget how callously and vindictively he presented himself then.

    Regarding his legislative philosophy, it was abundantly clear that the Bill of Rights was never secure while John McCain held office. I believe he presents an omnipresent clear and present danger to individual liberty and freedom in our Constitutional Republic.

    John McCain is clearly a war-monger. His solution to every international problem is always the use of military force and boots on the ground. Although the alternative was certainly anything but a beach vacation for this nation, I am grateful that McCain never became Commander in Chief.

    His deplorable record of NEVER being there for the veteran community speaks volumes about John McCain.

    It is now long past time for Senator John McCain to retire.

    @Horace … My brother and fellow Vietnam veteran, I greatly appreciate your post manifesting forgiveness with the Biblical reference.

    For those seeking to read it for themselves, it was referenced incorrectly. It was meant to be 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5, Verses 12-15.

    Horace, The Good Lord spared us both from our ordeal in the cauldron of Vietnam for a reason. You are a good and righteous man. Please hang in there, my brother. May God Bless you and Bless us all as well.

    Peace, my siblings.

    • To: Martin Miller,
      Your forgetting one important factor on “HOW” that fire got started on the USS FORESTALL! It started because “Songbird McCain” did something “hot-dog pilots” weren’t supposed to do; ie: “Wet Start” their aircraft!
      And because McCain did that, MANY patriotic sailors were killed and injured!
      Lastly, because of that incident, “…safety measures were installed in ALL aircraft…” so pilots weren’t able to do that again!
      Here’s something else you forgot.
      Within a few weeks, McCain’s father had him transferred off the USS FORESTALL! As a matter of fact, McCain was the only person transferred!
      All of this information is in his naval records!

      • White Rabbit Army Infantry RVN 68-69

        @Crazy elf … Elfster, I did not forget about McLame being implicated for starting the holocaust aboard the Forrestal.

        I have very little knowledge about the starting of jet engines, other than being nearby several thousand helicopter jet engine starts during my post Army career fighting wildfire for the State of Alaska, DNR, Division of Forestry and on helicopter management assignments from the Boise Interagency Fire Center (BIFC, now known as NIFC – the National IFC) all over the western lower 48, including managing a helicopter base on the Yellowstone Fire of 1988.

        Whether or not McLame was responsible for initiating the conflagration aboard the Forrestal is very controversial. There is much written on the internet, pro and con, about it. As not able to speak with authority about it, pro or con, I simply refrained from commenting about it. I still have no well informed opinion about it.

        Regarding the alleged Nixon pardon of McLame for treason, I also did not forget to mention that. In fact, your reply to my post was the first time I’d ever heard McLame had supposedly been “convicted” of treason.

        A cursory Google query regarding that matter did not reveal a conviction for treason, nor did it reveal a Nixonian pardon. Point support, elfster. What are your sources?

        I am no apologist or supporter of Senator John McCain. But I attempt to base my opinions on irrefutable facts and observations. I try not to deal with innuendo or ad hominem attacks.

        As an open-minded individual, I genuinely look forward to reading the evidence that supports both of your claims Crazy elf.

        Thank you for responding to my post. I have read many, many cogent posts written by you in the past. Please don’t feel that this comment is meant as an attack upon you. Believe me, that is certainly not my intent.

    • @Martin Miller, you state my position very well. In my opinion, John McCain has been a bust for veterans as Senator and would have been a disaster as president. Because, if anyone suffers from combat PTSD, it is John McCain. On the other hand, statements disrespectful of his patriotism, his honorable military service, his sacrifice and his suffering are both inaccurate and repugnant to this Vietnam vet.

  29. Emergency Notification issued 7/20/17 for Palo Alto Monterey Community-Based Outpatient Clinic. The clinic has experienced an environmental issue & clinic will be closed. They are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible. Anyone with an emergency medical issue should NOT come to the clinic & go directly to their local hospital’s emergency room~~~~~~~~~~~
    Where you can expect to soon receive denied coverage based on the prudent layperson standard.

    • Situation Update As of Monday, 7/24/ 2017 All VA Palo Alto Health Care System facilities are operating on their normal schedules.
      I could let the imagination run wild trying to know what ‘environmental issue’ occurred in The Monterey Community-Based Outpatient Clinic CA. I can find nothing on it, grateful I don’t use this clinic.

  30. The Zuni rocket that hit John McCain’s A4 Skyhawk was fired from another plane on the other side of the flight deck. The stories related here regarding “wet starts”, etc. are false. I cannot believe that with all the books, etc. that have been written about this fire that these false stories still exist.

    • Oh there was a fire and McCain never been convicted of being a traitor. Just POW’s making up shit to their captors to stay alive. Not credible info. They tortured those guys. I’m sure their mental health affected. To what degree don’t know. Maybe why he war munger. A bit twisted. So voting is important, knowing background. I’m leery of voting for x military period.

  31. McCain’s Flying History in Brief:

    The Navy has released and posted copies of McCain’s several medal citations and commendations. We have not seen any similar release of official reports of his accidents, or of his fitness reports as a young officer.

    However, we do have accounts of the incidents both from McCain himself and from his biographer, Robert Timberg, a former White House correspondent for the Baltimore Sun, and now editor of the U.S. Naval Institute’s magazine, Proceedings. Timberg’s award-winning book, “The Nightingale’s Song,” tells the story of McCain and four members of his Naval Academy class who later rose to prominence. It was published in 1995. McCain’s book “Faith of my Fathers” was published in 1999.

    First Crash, March 12, 1960: This took place while McCain, a young, unmarried officer not long out of the Naval Academy, was in advanced flight training at Corpus Christi, Texas. Timberg and McCain both give the cause as engine failure, but a Navy investigation blamed McCain’s inattention to altitude.

    Los Angeles Times, Oct. 6, 2008: Cockpit instruments that froze on impact showed the engine was still producing power. When water quenched the exhaust stack, it preserved a bright blue color, showing that the engine was still hot. And an aviator behind McCain reported that the engine was producing the black smoke characteristic of Skyraiders.

    Investigators determined that McCain was watching instruments in his cockpit that indicated the position of his landing gear and had lost track of his altitude and speed.

    The report concluded: “In the opinion of the board, the pilot’s preoccupation in the cockpit … coupled with the use of a power setting too low to maintain level flight in a turn were the primary causes of this accident.”

    “Clowning” in Spain, about December 1961: Those who claim McCain lost five planes – when they bother to give specific citations at all – point to an incident described by McCain, and also in Timberg’s book, as happening on one of McCain’s deployments to the Mediterranean. The L.A. Times put the date of the incident as “around December 1961,” while McCain was on a training mission flying from the USS Intrepid.

    Timberg, 1995 (p. 94): His professional growth, though reasonably steady, had its troubled moments. Flying low over the Iberian Peninsula, he took out some power lines, which led to a spate of newspaper stories in which he was predictably identified as the son of an admiral. The tale has gotten better with age. These days they talk about the day McCain turned the lights out in Spain.

    McCain described it this way in “Faith of My Fathers,” which was published four years after Timberg’s account:

    McCain, 1999 (p. 159): There were occasional setbacks in my efforts to round out my Navy profile. My reputation was certainly not enhanced when I knocked down some power lines while flying too low over southern Spain. My daredevil clowning had cut off electricity to a great many Spanish homes and created a small international incident.

    The L.A. Times, which interviewed others who were in McCain’s squadron at the time, reports that he returned to the carrier with 10 feet of power line trailing from his plan, and with a severed oil line. But while McCain himself admits this incident was cause by his own “daredevil clowning,” he landed safely and did not lose the aircraft. McCain’s detractors should scratch that “crash” off their list.

    Despite the incident in Spain, and the earlier finding that McCain was to blame for the Corpus Christi crash,  McCain was promoted to full lieutenant on June 1, 1962.

    Second crash, Nov. 28 1965: By this time Lt. McCain was stationed at Meridian, Mississippi, and was newly married to his first wife, Carol. McCain had flown to Philadelphia to attend an Army-Navy football game with his parents and was bringing back Christmas presents for the family in the baggage compartment of his plane. His jet engine quit over the Chesapeake Bay.

    McCain, 1999 (p. 172): Somewhere between the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Norfolk, Virginia, as I was preparing to come in and refuel, my engine flamed out, and I had to eject at a thousand feet. The Christmas gifts were lost with my airplane.

    Biographer Timberg gives additional details:

    Timberg, 1995 (pp 95-96): [He] had just begun his descent over unpopulated tidal terrain when the engine died. “I’ve got a flame-out,” he radioed. He went through the standard relight procedures three times. At one thousand feet, he ejected, landing on the deserted beach moments before the plane slammed into a clump of trees. … The Navy classified it as a “routine ejection.”

    The L.A. Times obtained records of the investigation of this crash, giving a somewhat different picture but ultimately blaming engine failure:

    Los Angeles Times, Oct. 8, 2008: In a report dated Jan. 18, 1966, the Naval Aviation Safety Center said it could not determine the cause of the accident or corroborate McCain’s account of an explosion in the engine. A close examination of the engine found “no discrepancies which would have caused or contributed to engine failure or malfunction.” . . . About two weeks after issuing its report, the safety center revised its findings and said the accident resulted from the failure or malfunction of an “undetermined component of the engine.”

    A little more than a year later McCain was promoted to lieutenant commander on Jan. 1, 1967.

    The Forrestal Disaster, July 29, 1967: The Forrestal was badly damaged and put out of action for two years. A little more than a month after the disaster, McCain was flying missions from another carrier, the USS Oriskany.

    Whose Plane?

    McCain has said for years that the missile struck his own plane.In his 1999 book “Faith of My Fathers,” McCain writes:

    McCain, 1999 (p. 177): I took my helmet back … and shut the plane’s canopy. In the next instant, a Zuni missile struck the belly fuel tank of my plane, tearing it open, igniting two hundred gallons of fuel that spilled onto the deck, and knocking two of my bombs to the deck.

    Author Gregory A. Freeman, in his 2002 book about the disaster, “Sailors to the End,” accepts that it was McCain’s plane that was hit:

    Freeman, 2002 (pp 104-105): McCain felt a huge impact as the Zuni rocket tore through his plane on the right side and exited on the left side, ripping open his fuel tank with four hundred gallons of JP5 jet fuel.

  32. Off-Topic, but regarding the sorry asses state of union pension funds and the very most vulnerable are required to take a 60% cut even if they paid 36+ years into it.
    I mention this because in the article it makes it clear this had many contributing reasons, economy, etc., but the largest looming reason is…lack of accountability by the very union thugs operating the cookie jars…and I also am mentioning this because towards the end of the article, this sweeping financial firestorm is expected to affect Public and Federal Union Pensions in very near future…which would include the very AFGE our VA Sec. Shulkin bows to, apparently. I expect the piggy AFGE to want to renegotiate their safe financial futures with the Federal Gov’t. soon and this would be an opportune time for POTUS to tell the piggies to go wee, wee, wee all the way home without their portage.
    “Although things improved economically on both coasts, the Ohio region where Larry and his fellow workers lived remained depressed. When companies there failed, they couldn’t continue to pay pension benefits and, in some instances, declared bankruptcy.

    This placed a burden on other failing companies’ pension plans and ultimately the U.S. government’s Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., which picks up a portion of a bankrupt company’s pension liability. But the PBGC is limited to payments of slightly more than $1,000 a month in cases of multiemployer funds. And since the PBGC itself is on the verge of bankruptcy, private pensioners like Burruel might endure even bigger cuts if the situation persists.”

    The AFGE must have their tendrils in that guaranty fund as well.

    “This is going to hit everyone,” predicted Overstreet, “public employees, too.”

  33. @SeymoreKlearly, how dare you run rITCHIE B OFF. HMMM. Guess running him off, has the “off” word. Couldn’t help but get the g** exited could you. About McCain, with his condition, can he mentally make his own decisions? Will the Choice be his to make. I remember being told, afterwards, Nancy Reagan made many of xPOTUS. Reagan’s decisions. Two Senate races in Arizona. Big bucks in Arizona. I lived in San Francisco in the 60’s, looking back, things may have been a bit out of control. Today reminds me of those times. There’s a whole bunch of SHIT going on. Sessions wants police officers to steal our cash and split it up. He’s senile and perverted. He’s dangerous.

    • As far as McCain it is likely that McCain will try to stay in office as long as possible screw up as much as he can for Trump. Although it is possible that the Republicans will force him to leave so they can put some in his place they can work with. The it is a matter of the Republican Governor of AZ to appoint his replacement. No doubt it will be the highest bidder.

      Although stranger things have happened in politics and they seem to write the rules as they go along. Getting away with what ever they want. A great example is the 2000 senate race in Missouri when the election was won by a candidate who had died in plane crash several months earlier. The people of Missouri were just voting to get John Ashcroft out of that seat. Any way the dead candidate’s wife took over the senate seat to represent her husband and the state of Missouri.

      • I am pretty sure McCain is much farther along in his illness than is being let on. He only has a several months left but will do as much damage as he can before he goes.

        I do have to point out McCain’s visit with the so-called rebels in February. Also the fact that one of the known causes of glioblastoma are the chemicals used to make Sarin Gas.

  34. Per McCain, then why was he transferred off of the USS Forrestal? There had to be a valid reason. But the time of the Forrestal fire and the time that McCain was transferred, the dates are close together for both incidents. Therefore, probability and intuition tells me that McCain was relocated (does this remind you of a Federal Agency?), due to the fire on the USS Forrestal.

    Per hot shot wet starts, I worked in Supply Division, and even I know that wet starts are not permitted on a aircraft carrier. Plus, McCain was a Lt. Commander, and this tells me he should’ve known better.

    Per McCain’s record on reforming the VA for better care of us Veterans, poor at best.

    For those that support McCain (speaking of his service, not his health), or those that are on the line and making no judgment towards McCain, and with no mention of the families who lost a love one on that sad day, these family members wasn’t held high, and given support by your statements. Because of this, I say shame on you. I post no names, because you know exactly who you are.

    Personally, I don’t care for McCain. He should be right on Shulkin’s ass, in order to make this phlegm to create new policies that supports the reformation of the VA that bridges the Gap of Accountability. Its as simple as that. Non complex.

    You folks take care of yourself. And thank you so very much for your kind words of encouragement with the regards towards my health. If I was a Physician at a VA Medical Center, I’d get fired for doing the right things. What a messed up Federal Agency, that extremely lacks in the care of us Veterans. A National disgrace. – – – Y’all take care, Nutter.

  35. @Ben Krause
    I have come to the conclusion, that the people that normally use this board are only here to agree with one another, while they have their silly pity parties. If someone has a different opinion they are all about harassment, name calling and being bully’s. ( which by the way harassment is against the law) Most of you have noting intelligent to say but yet you pat yourself on the back after you display your totally ignorance. Congratulations, Ben Krause not only have you amassed a large following of idiots, but you do yourself a disservice by allowing them to post their vile on your board in response to all the dirt you dig up on the VA, and you allow this vile to represent you as the founded or this board, because you do nothing to discourage it. Shame… This board could be a wonderful tool to educate veterans, and exchange reasonable ideas to make the VA system better. Instead, it has become a haven for those who have nothing better to do with their time that play childish games. And I dare say, not one of these people would say to my face what they have said on this board, so they are also cowards not worth the time of day. It is no wonder that its always the same old people (no new people ) posting anything here, because most reasonable people after reading the garbage posted would not waste their time here…. I believe this will be my last post, not that any of your followers will care, in fact I see them jumping up and down, urinating on my grave, or saluting me with the middle finger as I depart the scene….(yep that is the mentally here) In closing, Mr. Krause your judged by the company you keep and your company well your heard it all……

    • Here’s a little tinkle and shake to help you on your ingrown head up ass-itus that seems to keep you from realizing how McCain ignored Veterans every step of the way *unless* it benefitted his next reelection stage platform. In-fact, it was McCain that was responsible not too long ago for proposing huge increases in costs for those Veteran Dependents and Survivors using CHAMPA and TRI-CARE….he was successful in getting some of the increased costs shifted to them but not as much as he wanted…and the list goes on.

      Wait, here’s one more stream of yellow and shake your way.

      ~~~Gurgle~~~

    • @Rick B: Rick, I can’t help but to ask the obvious, what does the “B” stand for? Bitchboy?

      Whaaaaaaa wahhhh wahhhh. Bennnn they don’t like me, make some rules, to make them stopppp!!!

    • Hey Ricky Bitch,

      Wish you truly would get some help with your issues. Coming here trying to kiss up to some wrinkled up old dying war mongers asshole. Now that is a sure sign your not right in the head. Why I would be willing to bet if I start digging into your background I am sure to find things like arrest for hanging around the mortuary trying to sneak in and suck down a couple of cold ones.

      Your quest for that fluffy stuff is truly an obsession. Go ahead and take another dose of Fuk-it-all and head back to your glory hole where ever it may be. You might get lucky and find that fluffy stuff you are looking for.

      As for you never posting here again. Like that will really happen. We can only wish.

    • Shoot me at Sunrise if you must, but I did find one point on which I agree with Rick B.

      That is where he said: “This board could be a wonderful tool to educate veterans, and exchange reasonable ideas to make the VA system better.”

      Where I can readily see how all regular contributors help to make this board educational, I could understand where Rick B might not.

      So here is a very REASONABLE IDEA to make the VA system BETTER. Pay attention, Rick B.

      It is high time for some real leadership at the VA. Leadership that speaks truth publicly about how bad things have really gotten. Leadership that develops solutions to take better care of ALL our nations warriors.

      Leadership that recognizes that when they are doing a good job – – – it will be veterans singing their praises, rather than the VA needing a PR Agency to put out “Fluff Pieces” to mislead America.

      Current VA leadership has their Brain Housing Group the size of mice and their Hearts no bigger. It is about TEN YEARS PAST TIME TO 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 to the VBA that requires more than 90 days to adjudicate, is automatically found to be in favor of the veteran. If a VBA 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.

      9. No AFGE, nor any other Labor Union business will be allowed to take place in any Federal Workplace. Conducting Union Business during working hours will be STRICTLY PROHIBITED, and will be STRICTLY ENFORCED. Should any government employee be found violating this provision, it will result in IMMEDIATE LIFETIME DISMISSAL FROM ANY/ALL GOVERNMENTAL EMPLOYMENT.

      10. Attorneys for appeal will be retained at the former employee’s PERSONAL expense. U. S. Taxpayer’s will not be subject to payment of legal bills for incompetent or dishonest personnel with regards to Governmental Employment.

      You have my contact information Mr. Secretary. Call me anytime. I have a lot of ideas to help you improve the services provided to my fellow veterans. I will not hesitate to speak up at all.

      For my fellow veterans who have been ill-served by this CLUSTERFUCK of a train wreck called the VA over the years:

      Our battles overseas were far less stressful than our war here at home. Never Cruel or cowardly. Never Give Up. Never Give In. We are on the Righteous path.

      POTUS Reagan broke up PATCO in the ’80’s. Time for POTUS Trump to break up the AFGE. Most of 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 Veterans who put aside their own personal lives to answer this nation’s call when she needed them. Many of those Veterans suffer the remainder of their lives for doing what most of their countrymen had not the courage to do.

      If they cannot MUSTER THE STONES to do it properly – – – vote their worthless asses out as well. Party should NOT MATTER. What SHOULD MATTER is their VOTING RECORDS ON VETERANS ISSUES.

      Rhetoric is cheap. Congressional Voting Records speak louder than words.

      NO Combat Veteran should be surprised when the next McVeigh or Congressional Baseball Team Incident occurs. Bound to happen. Just a matter of time . . .

      We have now reached the next accelerative phase of our country falling apart. Country before Party. Principles before Personalities. Always.

      Want to REALLY fix the VA? The next SecVA needs to be a former Enlisted Man with a few serious axes to grind against the VA and the AFGE. Apparently, Former Flag Officers and SES appointed Civilians can’t cut the mustard . . .

      Maybe a SINCERELY MOTIVATED Gunnery Sergeant or Chief Petty Officer CAN.

      • Not going to shoot you at sunrise.. noon maybe, or not.

        James I do appreciate the chance to see an watch your very reasonable list grown. Along with enjoying some of your other post. Also I have appreciated some of your comments on my post. I really do some research to get things right and am always trying to contribute as I believe most on here are doing.

        The past several years I have watched as Ben and others associated with his work bring about more changes at the VA to help Veterans than the Big six VSOs have in the last ten years.

        Just his actions on Flow Health alone stopped the VA from giving every Veterans medical records to a Russian based company that had plans to then charge other commercial organizations for access to our records, all without any Veterans consent and illegally.

        Posts by commenters here doing the research on the company helped make it possible to stop that from happening. There are a large number of changes that have been brought about by Ben’s work and often information posted on this blog by comments has helped Ben in his work.

        Just a few of Ben’s accomplishments include getting the “As the Crow Flies Rule” thrown out of Veterans Choice which did help tens of thousands of Veterans while the VSOs were standing around with their party hats on fighting against Veterans having a Choice.

        The Tens of thousands of Veterans Ben help get new TBI exams in front of qualified examiners after being denied by unqualified examiners.

        The list goes on but not enough time right now to list them all.

        So for me when I see the first post of the day for Rickey Bitch coming on here saying “The last paragraph of the article, damn talking about kicking a man when he is down… the puke who wrote this ought to be shot.” Well I do take offence.

        Then when he starts Crying to Ben because we don’t take his garbage and he starts talking about what Ben needs to start telling us what to do and saying the needed changes like “This board could be a wonderful tool to educate veterans, and exchange reasonable ideas to make the VA system better.”

        It is time he realize that he can go start his own blog and make all the changes he wants we really don’t need his fluffy boy input. If you go back through the comments he continually makes on other article Ben has writing he is always complaining about how Ben does not write fluffy pieces for the VA because he believes they have accomplished so much.

        One last thing about him. The guy has some strange pee fetish he always starts talking about pee.

        That reminds me, maybe we should all write our congressman and recommend they bury McCain in casket either filled with urinal cakes or even better yet one made out of urinal cakes.

        Keep up the good work James, getting late and its time to hit the head then to bed.

      • Seymore Klearly – – – If my fate is to face fusilading, then it MUST be done in the traditional manner dating back to Saint Sebastian. Anything else would be dishonorable and uncivilized . . . Besides that extra 6 hours might wear out the all female firing squad. As a Marine, Sailor, and Hardcore Biker (Can’t do a thousand miles a day marks you as a Pussy) my last request will be a doozy! Traditionally, it must be honored. 🙂 🙂 🙂

        I certainly appreciate your kind words. What I appreciate more is your dogged tenacity to ferret out the truth. Your research is impeccable. While I am a relative newcomer to Ben’s Blog (Late Sept. 2016), I have had the opportunity to go back and read many, many postings in the archives. Doing that is how I came to the conclusion that Big Ben is doing the most ethical thing possible with his education and training. It also is what gave rise to the “Our battles overseas were far less stressful than our war here at home. Never Cruel or cowardly. Never Give Up. Never Give In. We are on the Righteous path” portion of OUR developing very reasonable growing list.

        I cannot, and will not take credit for the development of that listing, because it was developed through (too many posters to mention) commentary. Pretty much ALL of the regulars have contributed SOMETHING to that plan. All I have done is to attempt to distill it down to the most basic form. Then post it.

        And for those that have further ideas on how to make it better, I do want to hear them.

        We all know that is about ten years past time to fix the damn broken VA. No doubt in my mind it will get done. We just have to keep pushing as best we can.

        And as for Ricky Bitch – – – I have yet to see him contribute ANYTHING positive to this board, or to try to help another vet. Everyone’s anger with him is always righteous, requiring NO justification.

        He thinks we are cowards? Let him come to my door. Only thing that will beat him to the morgue will be the headlights of the ambulance carrying him . . .

      • James Clement, How about the Dept of VA educational & training videos on youtube be opened up for comments. Comments are disabled for all their videos on youtube. Veterans in the real world should have the option to give their experience about the subject matter that goes beyond the presentation given by VA. Why are they afraid of comments, well we know the answer to that already.

      • NiteWish – – – Was completely unaware of that. It is an excellent idea! May take a while (due personal stuff for a trip to Oakland/Palo Alto CA early August) but I am SURE that you will be seeing reference to that in future postings.

        Thank You. Stay tuned . . .

    • Rich,
      You really should not discuss harrassment, then sua sponte say ” No one would dare say to your face what they said on this board”
      Your words man.
      Smh

      • namnibor, Make me some.Though you know people over 30 should not eat popcorn. I’d like to hear something from the other 3900+ silent followers. Crickets~~~

      • For smooth gliding through my pistol, I’ll take extra butter. Watch for the responses after the Nightly News. I didn’t mean to harass you. Please don’t call the Po Po. Thank you Nammers. Wooo Whoo !!!

      • No butter here. I have worked hard at keeping my LDL low and my HDL above the low levels, and lost 55 LBs over last two years…so my popcorn will unfortunately be a bit like Styrofoam, but good fiber all the same.
        I just like the sound of popping popcorn and the resulting tasty smell.

        Notice how the mainstream media is entirely blind to how McCain turned a blind eye to benefit of Veterans? Not a peep about Phoenix VA Scandal…it’s like the man has always had Kevlar Skin…like most crocs. 🙂

      • Nam, the media also turned a blind eye to such a celebrated veteran opting to go down the street to the Mayo Clinic rather than to the VA.

        If I recall correctly, at some point after the Phoenix scandal broke, I recall McCain being asked about it, and he had to feign concern for veterans for 2 if not almost 3 whole days.

        The media has turned lots of blind eyes towards McCain because he liked his maverick name…given to him by the media…which usually meant he was screwing his own party once again….which the media also liked.

        His unconstitutional campaign finance reform BS was another lauded POS by the media, until SCOTUS finally set him straight, with nothing said since then, particularly about his “institute” and the millions he was taking in, including from foreign sources.

        McCain has been a hypocrite for many years, with veterans being only part of it.

      • Yes sir. Not a peep about Phoenix, Forrestal, or what he hasn’t done to change the VA. Propaganda to the max. And they talk negatively about RT Television. Damn, I get better news from RT that I do the MSM National News. Go figure.

        Oh, and since I have it in good with Putin, I’ll let you know when and where the next meeting will be between POTUS and Putin.

      • DAMNNNN…Nutter ..PUTIN used to talk to me also, But I quit watching so he quit talking..LOL
        I don’t watch any news on the tube….need to know the weather just look up, Something bad coming, the neighbor’s will let me know. They know I don’t watch none of it…LOL OR just watch your DOG, They can feel it coming…The rain

      • @OLDMARINE – – – Yeah I hear you about watching the tube. Unfortunately, since I’m in a hospital bed, I browse the channels for something that will take my mind off of things. Its frustrating. More frustrating, is when someone like McCain that has the power and influence to make some damn changes in the VA but he has sat back and done dog poop (sorry my Buddy Boy, Daddy knows your shit don’t stick).

        As I write, I talk. Somehow my Polish and German messes up my Cherokee blood, therefore affecting my thoughts. LoL

      • ANutter…..I get your point now, I would do the same,,,,
        Here is why I mentioned Casein protein the other day…I don’t eat much nasty meat anymore,..LOL

        Casein protein is a slow digesting protein derived from cow’s milk and used by body builders for the muscle recovery after workouts. The amino acids from casein are digested more slowly than other proteins such as whey and provide a slow, steady flow of amino acids to the blood stream for hours.

  36. Even though he led a privileged life, he did serve in the military, and he endured lifelong injuries resulting from his treatment as a POW. I honor his military contributions and sacrifices, as I and other vets appreciate it when we are thanked for our military service. Those unpatriotic words from our president, who did not serve and had the audacity to say that he liked soldiers who weren’t captured, insult and hurt all of us as veterans. I may not always agree with John McCain, but I am thankful for his service, I wish him the best, and I will light a candle and say a prayer for his health.

    • McCain doesn’t have the best interest for Veterans. And, no mention of the, at least, 22 Veterans that commit suicide every single day. McCain isn’t fighting for those Veterans or their family, nor ME !!! And, McCain has the power and influence to clean up the VA.

    • Personally Tammy,

      I wish he was never born. With all the deaths, pain and suffering he has caused the Veterans population and our families there are no words to described how I feel about McCain.

    • @CCTammhy – – – I may not agree with everything or what POTUS does, but I do know this, that when he has an issue to try and get resolved, he’s not intimidated to step forward to plow and stir up those in the political field. The majority of them have no balls. And you speak of Patriotism, but yet McCain hasn’t stood solid with Veterans and the illegal things that us Veterans have to contend with (corruption in the VA). Sick.

  37. To:
    “White Rabbit” and “John Reigle”

    Here’s two sites which might clear up any confusion on “Songbird John McCain’s” naval service.
    The first one comes directly from an investigation concerning the “…worst naval incident since WWII!”
    Google the following:
    “Navy Releases McCain’s Records!”
    It’s gives, in detail, what occurred onboard the USS FORESTALL. It also will lead you to other websites containing information concerning this issue!
    _________________________

    This second one is by; “Thomas Madison”,
    dated; July 21, 2015. It’s very interesting in the fact of POW incarcerations during the Vietnam War!
    Titled:

    “The Real John McCain. “33 POW’s Faced Execution For Treason After Vietnam Until Nixon Pardoned All POW’s.” McCain Was #1 On The List!”

    The article is claiming this from a former POW/Medal of Honor Recipient!
    Maybe the reason no one can find records of McCain’s treason is due to Kerry and McCain has had “…all records sealed for 99 years!”
    As I’ve said before, “What are Kerry and McCain hiding, where they were personally responsible for sealing all the POW’s military records?”

    • @Crazy elf – – – A thank you to all who have posted reference material about McCain.

      To the rest of you who can’t comprehend, use you VA benefits or Voc Rehab for classes on comprehension, logic, and reasoning. Unbelievable how some of you are getting duped. You most likely contribute to your local VSO or you’re one of them. Disgusting, and you talk about cover ups. Gee whiz, what a fizz.

    • What is Kerry hiding? There was credible evidence when he ran for president that at a minimum, he was discharged with a less than honorable discharge after he committed treason by talking to the North Vietnamese in London while there were soldiers still in the field.

      There were reports back then showing his honorable discharge was signed by the SecNav in 1979 after it had been upgraded.

      It would not surprise me Kerry wanted his records sealed.

  38. @Ben Krause and Others – – – Has anyone heard from Ex va, or know how to directly get ahold of him? Ben, if you know any info in getting ahold of Ex va, please let him know that there are many concerned about him. Thanks, the Nutter.

  39. dude…a bit jelly are we? not every vet is born with a silver spoon. not every vet goes onto the public dole – i.e. politics. not every vet, having pursued public service gets to r̶a̶p̶e̶ reap the rewards of public (and immensely private) funded service. as jfk once said “Ask not why you did for your country. Ask why your country did to you what they did.” or something like that.

    Patriotism greases the wheel of greed with the blood of the misled.

    Cheers!

  40. Last night I was watching Fox News when the news of McCain’s diagnosis became known and the world of Twitter was bombarded by well wishers from every corner of the political spectrum. From Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, and others on both sides of the aisle the messages came wishing him well, praising him and his deeds.

    All I could think of was, “What fucking hypocrites!”

    When a neighbor (non-veteran) asked me what I thought of the news on McCain, my sentiments echoed Ben’s. I told him many of the points commented on by Ben and others. My neighbor was appalled at what I said. He then asked, “do other veterans feel like you?”

    McCain should not be honored by any veteran and the story by Ben and the comments by my fellow veterans vindicate me in my response to my neighbor. I will print this out and show this neighbor exactly how we have reacted to this news.

  41. I admire McCain’s war record but I thought he was a kook as a senator. It’s not bad to lead a privileged life, have a grandfather and a father who were admirals, get divorced or marry a wealthy woman. Not using VA healthcare when you can is good, leaves a spot for another veteran. So what is your beef?

    • There’s no issue with any human, Veteran or otherwise is doing well in life. The issue is when it becomes blatantly obvious McCain was and is a self-serving ass. NOT ONCE did he use his influence to force the DOJ and FBI to investigate the shit out of just the Phoenix VAMC in his own back yard that HE was a representative of AND a Veteran. Hero or not, when you forget your own, you have indeed gone rogue and self-absorbed asses usually have gobs of admirers that can always see past that because they too usually are…self-absorbed asses. Hypocrites.
      That must get really uncomfortable after a while having your sphincter as an eyelid.

  42. “The Lord works in mysterious ways”. “Pay Back” or Karma. whatever you want to call it.

It couldn`t happen to a better candidate in my view. Tho it has taken 50 Yrs.

  43. When I get to hell

    I’ll reply with a whole lotta anger
    and say “I earned my living as a 13Banger!”

    paraphrased cadance because if theres a line in hell for booting McCain in his chest for eternity I want a fucking number.

    • There once was a maverick
      He was a real self-absorbed prick

  44. Can anuone recommend a very lawyer to file a malpractice tort against a towel head plauing shrink at the va? Vso seems to think i have somethong that needs to be explored

    Thank you

    • What good is any VSO if they cannot recommend an attorney when they tell you something like that?

      Since it’s a towel-head VA psych shrink, before going to your very next session with towel-head, wrap yourself in bacon or do something creative with cooked pork and bring it along as a snack during your session for a little Veteran PsyOps on his head.
      As someone on here stated today, “You cannot spell Mohammed without some ham”. 🙂

      • I find taking a small zip-lock bag of “pork-jerkey” sends those Muslim asswipes into a rage! Oh, well, they can’t handle the fuckin truth LOL!

        OldMarine, If I hadn’t gone back looking for the attorney, I would not have seen your post back to me, for some reason I didn’t get it sent by email. Thankx for the info. I’ll look in to it all. god knows I’ve got to gain some weight.

  45. Real strange….back in Jan-Feb Shulkin said that the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic vowed to be strategic partners with the VA in helping to do “whatever they can” and “all they can” to work with the VA. That these clinics are “all aboard” in seeing veteran patients. This was when the CEO’s of both clinics turned down accepting the job of Sec. of VA.
    Now, the Mayo Clinic refuses to accept Vet. Choice to treat patients (because of the slow way Healthnet handles this program in terms of payments and in terms of time required by the clinics to get approvals for requests for additional services). These clinics treat patients critically (fast) and Healthnet takes forever to make authorizations to proceed to the next step (non-critical fashion).
    Well, I guess we caught the Shithead in yet another lie…dead on. Mayo wants nothing to do with VA clown-boys. The Shulk is like that. He the leader. Is this guy stupid in addition to being a liar?

    • Truth is the Mayo Clinic still have residence programs at the VAMCs near each Mayo Clinic and are still using Veterans in all of their research. Also they are still knocking down the bucks working as outside providers, but they are not going through the Choice Program. Too much over-site.

  46. JESUS BEN!
    Tell us what u really think of MCAIN!
    Ya he’s a fuktard, but he’s a dead man walking.
    Give him a fukn break!

    • @Jason – – – How about comforting the families of those Veterans who committed suicide? Who’s looking out for them? McCain never did. Nor has he faithfully backed us Veterans up. Give me a break. And, this doesn’t mean that I wish bad upon a person, but don’t throw your military Brothers and Sisters under the bus. Damn Bro, you need to read other posts by @Seymore, @Crazy elf, @Namnibor, @James Clement, and others.

    • Jason,
      When “Songbird Traitorous McCain” is finally in the ground and out of mind, then I’ll give the prick a fuckin break!
      I’d like to give him a fuckin break now! If you understand my meaning!

    @Crazy elf … I just read your latest post elf. Thanks, I will read the links you included.

    However, I just read really, really important information about the emerging veteran abuse scandal @ VAMC Manchester, NH. The article is on http://www.wmur.com a local TV station website in that area. It was updated July 18, 2017 at 9:53 PM EDT, by Adam Sexton.

    From the article, VA Secretary Shulkin removed the VAMC Manchester Hospital Director and Chief of Staff “hours” after The Boston Globe broke news of the scandal.

    “But documents obtained by WMUR News 9 show Shulkin was informed of the concern last year. Shulkin sent an email to top elected officials in New Hampshire that the issues were ‘new to me,’ but the documents show he was copied on the correspondence about the problems 10 months ago.”

    Well my siblings, it appears that Secretary Shulkin has been proven to be a liar, as was his predecessor. It also appears that there is now documented evidence that Secretary Shulkin had been informed of whistleblower claims of rampant veteran abuse at VAMC Manchester, and the concerns of elected representatives from New Hampshire fully 10 months ago and took no action to address the abuse.

    It appears that Sec. Shulkin has been caught red-handed, lying to New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, U.S. Senator Margaret Hassan, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, U.S. Representative Carol Shea-Porter, and U.S. Representative Anne M. Kuster.

    As for me, I intend to contact all the nationally elected representatives I can think of and inform them that Secretary Shulkin has grossly violated his mandate to supervise the care of the veterans of this nation and that he has been caught lying in an effort to cover up his gross failure. As a concerned veteran with skin in the game, I will strongly urge those elected representatives to immediately see that Secretary Shulkin is fired and that he should lose any accrued benefits consistant with the new VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Law.

    The new White House VA Complaint Hotline might also be a good place to swamp with demands for Shulkin’s ouster.

    Lets make lots of noise about this, my brethren.

    Stay safe, my siblings. Peace

    • f-u ralph – you the kind of boss that can pay someone off using taxpayer money to prevent their own misconduct from coming to light.

    • Interesting someone using the email address of a VISN director commenting here.

      If that really is you Ralphie, maybe you should figure out your own job first rather than commenting on veterans web sites.

      That is, after you’re done sniffing McCain’s jock.

    • @[email protected] – – – Ralphie, what are you doing using Fed. Gov’t email posting messages on a blog. Didn’t they tell you to use that email for work. Speaking of work, your wasting money. Fucking AFGE pig. Hopefully, Johnny will have a dream with a message that tells him to turn his life around to truthfully back up Veterans. All of us, even you bitch that needs a sex change. Does the VA still pay for that type of perverted operation? I see that the word got out to your other VSO hot summer day cheesy crotch lappers. You should know by signing in using your .gov email address that other Veterans would be on your ass. Frigging Kike, so smart. grrrrrrr

    • YOUR A STELLAR FUCKTARD…RALPH

      FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The Department of Veterans Affairs says six employees at a clinic in Fort Collins and the VA Medical Center in Cheyenne should be disciplined for manipulating data about veteran care.

      The VA has proposed unspecified action against Rocky Mountain Network Director Ralph Gigliotti and Cheyenne VA Medical Center Director Cynthia McCormack. The department did not specify which other employees are facing discipline.

      Acting VA Secretary Sloan Gibson said Tuesday that the actions of employees who have been found to have manipulated data will not be tolerated.

      Investigators from the VA’s medical branch say workers were told to make their records show that veterans got appointments within 14 days of the day requested, whether or not it was true.

      You could hold Mccains jock strap.
      You have no honor………AND YOU DO, ASS WIPE…..GO SUCK ON McFAKE’S JOCK STRAP,HE WOULD BITCH SLAP YOUR ASS

    • Ralphie…I can tell by your hands in the picture you and your fuck buddy Cory Kloehn, never did a day’s work in your life, but hang a picture of the BAPHOMET… I bet McFAKE WAS PROUD OF YOU…..ASS HOLE

      • Old Marine,

        If you follow the link it will take you to a better picture of Gigliotti. there is a link in the left hand column on the page with his picture. Also note the article, they took down the P.O.W. flag so they could use the flag pole to fly the rainbow freak flag at his facility.

        Note the caption under his picture.

        Personally I do give a chit about homosexuals but when they raise their flag at a VA facility that is taking things a bit beyond my tolerance level.

        Oh and note the link you provided says that he is now the director of VISN 19. Given he resigned to duck a Whistle blower retaliation hearing on a claim filed against him. He certainly seems to be one of the lower forms of life at the VA.

      • Seymore,,,I used to be live and let lick, But after my x’s two sisters [lickers] they hate straight people with a passion, And now for my divorce I got a licker judge, EVIDENCE you might as well through yours out the window, Her proof was written on a piece of notebook paper meanwhile I had bank statement’s …..SORRY..
        The justice system, what a fucking joke……got to laugh about it…Going to apeal it costing me 4 grand or pay her 8. But I dont give a fuck…LOL….. And if she had 8 coming to her in reality I would have no problem paying it….End of why I hate the licker’s story

    • So Ralph thought you resigned from the VA.

      Clearly with what Ben has accomplished for Veterans in the last two years and with all the deaths, pain and suffering McCain has caused the Veterans population and our families throughout his career.

      I guess all that shit they say about you is true. Your a real waste of space. Still flying your freak flag?

    • @Ralph- So….a VISN Director or one stealing their email address is talking about ass and jock straps. Sounds like you are one of the Klingon/leftovers from the Ex-Head of VAOIG all glass conference room masturbation station.
      Really class act of you to show your true despicable colors on a Disabled Veterans website. You and all your AFGE Union minion can suck my ass….and with me having chronic diarrhea, will keep you topped-off of your current state of being full of shit.
      Fuck off and just die. You have about as much honor as just to be released again O.J. Simpson or any other killer hired and still working at the VA.
      Just fuck off and maybe have a brain trade with McCain.

      • nam…… So….a VISN Director or one stealing their email address ..I THOUGHT THE SAME THING BUT HE IS STILL A DIRT BAG

    • Ralphie- Why does it matter whether any given Veteran saw “combat” or did not? The definition of a Disabled Veteran is not exclusive to being in combat you dick wad. I seriously doubt your competency to work anywhere BUT the ass hats at the VA or any favorite VSO. So very typical of the below 60 IQ level you display…but with that low IQ you surely have had fun at falsifying VA doc’s and creating wait lists. So easy a cave man can do it. HA HA HA hA!

    • I don’t mean to take anything away from McCain’s Naval service.

      But he was never a stand up man in his personal life and never took care of any veteran other than his self. One selfish bastard. Left a wife in a wheel chair. Did she do something to deserve that?

      • Yeah, that was very low of McCain to desert a wheelchair bound wife. I guess McCain liked his current wife’s stock portfolio and options much better….plus, he can now give all the free beer to the piggy VSO lodges as a write-off.

    • Yeah Ben is indeed a pogue Cuck.
      No Combat but has 100% SC connection cause he is a persistent cuck.
      I bet he voted for McCain/Palin also.
      Too much time on here hating and being a cuck.
      Bitter cause people died and he could do absolutely nothing about it, even though he is a “Veterans Disability Lawyer”.
      Put up your legal record Ben….
      How much litigation have you been involved with?
      How many cases have you won?
      How many people have you saved?
      Your just a little brat that whined and whined until the VA was sick of hearing from you.
      You talk of entitlement?
      Why the hell did the government spend over 300,000 K to send you to law school so you can post garbage articles while vets die?
      Are you preventing people from dying?
      You are not entitled to shit; you signed a contract and that is that.
      Anything else is a bonus.
      I have been reading this for years.
      Ben has just become a mouth piece for the Trump Administration.
      Trump, with 6 draft deferments from Nam but you Cucks still support him.

      • Hey Freshwater Troll.

        Ben has accomplice more for Veterans in the last two years then the Big 6 VSOs have in the last decade. As far as the rest of your post it is clear your ip address must come from a VA address and you are not a real Veteran. Just a common VA paid troll stabbing veterans in the back.

      • Thanks for the feedback “Freshwater”. You seem confused about what an attorney does, what criteria is required for receipt of VA benefits, and curiously, my voting record. Starting from last to first.

        I voted for President Obama in 2008, a fact that I am open about and have written about on this website, but that is not the only thing you seem confused about. The benefits I receive are benefits I earned via my military service after fighting for them following wrongful VA denials – – these are called entitlements. Last, I do not “save” lives because I am not a doctor. Doctors “save” lives. Attorneys fight for clients who were injured when a doctor screws up. I hope this helps clarify some things.

        I always find it interesting when folks post comments/insults using pseudonyms while out the other side of their mouths demanded transparency from everyone else. Hilarious double standard.

      • I did not even know there were Freshwater Trolls. It’s kind of an oxymoron, but a moron all the same.

      • namnibor, theres some neat ‘images of freshwater internet troll’ should you care to google/see them. haha

      • Freshwater – – – You can go fuck a duck. It will probably be the best sex you ever had. TROLL!

      • I knew a few Navy woman on a Naval Air Station I was at for year and half and this one rather manly one named ‘Claire’, whom had her own trucking company before a judge gave her a choice of paying back taxes or joining the Navy Linguistics…she obviously opted for Navy….anywho….Claire referred to feminine ‘Douches’ as “Freshwater”…maybe it was a Rhode Island thing or burly female trucker gone Navy thing, do not know, but in it shows that ‘Freshwater’ can in-fact be also a Douche.

        True story. Claire was basically “Large Marge” from a Pee Wee Herman movie. 🙂

      • Nice play of Trickery –the practice of deception-someone is devious & copycats are sure to follow.

  49. While I regret his medical situation, I am glad he chose care at a non-va medical centre’, he can afford. It’s interesting that he in 100% disabled and able to be “employed” probably also receiving “disability compensation”. I’m glad he freed the money for the rest of us.
    The VA says the “Independent Living” program isn’t for us living overseas (Germany) who need try to get “re-hab” skills training to get thru the day. Also, why many benefits thru the Foreign Medical Program, like dental aren’t.
    I’d like to try his “disability” for a day and be able to work outside the home again, washing clothes etc from a wheelchair can be a challenge.
    Regardless, hope his post op recovery goes well,

  51. Add one more discredit to McCain. In 2008 John McCain and Barack Obama ran for President. BOTH McCain and Obama are constitutionally BARRED under Article II, Sec. 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution which requires a POTUS to be a “Natural Born Citizen”. Neither McCain or Obama meet the legally established, affirmed and re-affirmed definition of what a “Natural Born Citizen” is. The Law of Nations, referenced in Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the USConst. defines an NBC as one “born in a country of parents who are both citizens”. The US Supreme Court affirmed this definition in 1874, in Minor v Happersett, saying that an NBC is “One born in the US to parents who are both US citizens themselves” at the time of birth of the child. Neither Obama OR McCain meet this criteria. Obama because his Father was not a US Citizen. McCain because he was born in Colon, Panama and not on US soil. See: “There is no ‘President’ Obama” by me. http://www.thepostemail.com/09/17/2010/there-is-no-president-obama/

    Pulitzer Prize-winning CNN journalist busted for fabricating fake news, resigns from CNN

    Following more than a years’ worth of binge-publishing fake news about the Trump campaign, CNN has announced the resignation of three of its top journalists, including Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Eric Lichtblau. Along with Thomas Frank and Lex Haris, Lichtblau was found guilty of…

  54. By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times – Wednesday, May 17, 2017

    ANALYSIS/OPINION:

    Sen. John McCain, self-proclaimed Republican but not-so-secret Democrat, came out in full force against his own party’s president, saying the many scandals rocking the White House lately are reaching “Watergate” proportions.

    Easy there, McCain. Let’s reel back the rhetoric a bit and consider a more level-headed look at these so-called scandals.

    Remember: Just because Democrats call something a scandal, doesn’t make it so. Next thing, you’ll have us believing President Donald Trump’s committed an impeachable offense — like Rep. Maxine Waters constantly chimes or, most recently, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and CNN’s David Gergen.

    The MSNBC mouth Matthews said Tuesday: “Clearly, we’re on the trail there to impeachment,” while discussing Trump’s firing of the FBI’s James Comey.

    And CNN’s Gergen, on the same topic, said this: “We’re in impeachment territory.”

    Right. We still need the impeachment offense — but potatoes, potahtoes. That’s small fry nit-picking, right there

  57. White Rabbit Army Infantry RVN 68-69

    Last night about midnight, I posted a comment about a WMUR News 9 story with proof Sec Shulkin was aware of the problems @ VAMC Manchester 10 months ago.

    The article also documented that with the News 9 now in possession of emails, they knew Shulkin had lied to New Hampshire Governor Sununu and to U.S. Senator Shaheen about his knowledge of the many problems at VAMC Manchester.

    I am outraged that Shulkin has been proven to be a liar and a person unfit to be the supervisor of all veteran care in this nation.

    When I posted about the article, in a lengthier, more detailed manner overnight, it didn’t go up on the website’s comments. At the top of my post, there appeared a sentence regarding something to do with it being under review for moderation, or something. At any rate, it did not get posted as a comment for some reason of which I am not aware.

    I will continue to read this website, but this will be my last comment on it.

    Take good care, my siblings. May God bless you all. … Out.

    • White Rabbit …..DON’T FEEL LIKE THE LONE RANGER I GET THE GREEN ALSO BUT CAN NEVER READ WHAT IS SAYS SO DON’T FEEL LIKE ITS JUST U

    • @White Rabbit,
      Are you aware the Manchester VHA was flooded due to a freak water burst a day or two ago! Only the bottom two floors escaped damage!
      The pictures I’ve seen show filing cabinets, and lots of paperwork, all over the floors.
      Kinda makes one wonder IF that water pipe didn’t burst on purpose. Especially right after that VHA was put under investigation by “Shithead Shulkin!”
      Just thinking out loud!

    • If you happen to try to post anything that has an active link to a website or anything highlighted blue, it will state awaiting moderation.
      The way around this is to place quotations at front and very end of such a post, but even some weblinks in a given post that has some copy/pasting can cause that awaiting moderation. It’s not censorship, it’s more protecting Ben’s servers from malicious Trojan attacks and such. Nothing personal at all.

    • P.S.
      @White Rabbit,
      I also have to inform you, the attorney for the Manchester VHA whistleblowers, has also spoken out about “Shithead Shulkin” knowing “…10 months ago…” about the massive corruption and cover-up at that hospital!
      Your correct, “Shithead Shulkin” doesn’t need to be in charge of “…the most corrupt government agency in American!”
      Did you know that the AFGE is considered to be “…the most corrupt unionized in America!”?
      Did you know that “David Little Cox”, AFGE’s President, actually “threatened the Secretary of VA”, McDonald, with these words: quote: “If McDonald doesn’t get on board, I’ll whoop his ass!” He said that at one of the unions’ meeting hall. It’s on video!
      Yep, the president of the VA’s union actually threatened McDonald, and NOT one thing happened to him!
      Just thought I’d throw that little piece of historical fact at ya!

    • @White Rabbit – – – When posting links in you comments, use quotation marks at the beginning and ending of the link that you want to include in your post . . .

      Example of how to type in a link; ———-> “www.xxx.com”

      Comments are not censored like many other sites. Like @Namnibor stated, when there are no quotation marks, the site automatically puts your post into moderation.

      Also, there are many people that visit Ben’s site every day. Many just read the comments. Just because no one hasn’t responded to your comment, doesn’t mean that no one has read it. Plus, many on this site are disabled, and don’t post at all. Don’t feel left out, I thought the same thing when I first started posting on Ben’s site. Don’t take it personal, because it isn’t. Keep posting. – – – Thanks, Nutter.

      • ANutterVet, “Just because no one hasn’t responded to your comment, doesn’t mean that no one has read it…..Don’t take it personal, because it isn’t”. I am guilty of not responding at times. I just figured out I had not been accepting the Subscribe to comments quick enough so I’ve missed reply’s, many of yours. When I’ve gone back through articles looking for info I know I read, I’ve seen some reply’s but thought it now too late to respond.
        Accept my belated Thank You to you & All for the great info I missed responding back to.

      • @NiteWish – – – Hey my post was meant to let White Rabbit know that people are reading his posts. And, to not get discouraged if there are no replies. No offense to anyone, I only wanted to let White Rabbit know to not be discouraged.

    • As ANutterVet points outs that you need to put Quotation marks around any hyperlinks or your comment is sent to a holding que.

      What you can do to post that full comment is copy and paste the comment into a new comment posting box and add the quotes. The comment should then post.

      Also if the comment has an email address in it may be sent to the que also. Just add the quotes around the email address and that should take care of the problem.

      Looking forward to reading the post.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – If John McCain’s illness requires a long absence from the U.S. Senate, his colleagues will be deprived of a dealmaker and leading voice on national security, while America’s allies will lose one of the few Republican critics of President Donald Trump’s foreign policy.

    The 80-year-old lawmaker and 2008 Republican presidential nominee, who was elected to a sixth Senate term last November, has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. He is vowing a quick return to the Senate.

    It’s unreal how (over and over) the middle-class people vote Republican when the Republicans clearly do NOTHING for us!

    • @Jason
      Perhaps the explanation for why people vote this way is that those people who do so place their voting priority on candidates that they see as making America stronger and safer, rather than the candidate that promises to do monetary things for them personally? Perhaps there is still a class of American (not lower, middle, or upper) that is in a class of people tat are motivated by ethics rather than personal greed and while ethics rarely wins the day in this scenario it is an explanation of why some in America keep voting Republican.

  62. VA testing mobile app that helps tailor care based on each Veteran’s genetics – VAntage Point

    “http://www.blogs.va.gov/VAntage/39764/va-testing-mobile-app-that-helps-tailor-care-based-on-each-veterans-genetics”
    When a new system being field tested this summer goes live, VA will become the first U.S. health care organization ever to put genetic testing data into the hands of patients via a mobile application.

    The system, named Genetic Diagnostic Testing App — called GDx — will put individual genetic information in the hands of Veterans – providing them with access to their information anywhere, anytime, as well as the ability to share it with VA and non-VA providers alike. In short, medical professionals will be able to provide highly-individualized care and better treat their patients.

    To explain a bit more in detail, GDx project leads Dr. Michael Icardi, national director of VA Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Science, and Dr. Julie Lynch, nurse research scientist at VA Informatics and Computing Infrastructure answered the following questions about this initiative.

    highly-individualized care and to better treat their patients…. Based on each Veteran’s genetics..YEA one pill just for you that will make you grow horn’s and breath fire…LOL

    • Oldmarine,

      I’m sure the fine print in their Terms of Agreement makes clear the veteran has to agree to genetic testing, with the VA having exclusive control over your genetic information.

      The VA doesn’t give a shit about individualized care. They care about having your information to sell to others.

        LOL

        In the Book of Matthew myrrh pronounced like “mer” is an herb that was given as a gift by the three magi or three wise men. Herbs and chemicals are used in sorcery for inducing trance like states that enable mind control or bewitchment. Myrrh can also be ingested or used like an incense and is likely being added into food and wine covertly to enhance their witchcraft. Druids similar to wizards used holly wood and Merlin is depicted as a Druid. Mark Breakspear is a Hollywood special effects designer and Michael Breakspear is an Australian neuroscientist who specializes in studying oscillating wave patters and their effects on the brain. They are sorcerers. Sorcery is all about deception and manipulation and criminals use it sorcery as a defensive tool. The Breakspear family in London own a crematorium which is involved with human sacrifices and destroying evidence of human remains.

    • Do you remember that VA Dr. who sold his “miracle drug”, my brain can’t remember right now what the drug was for, to big pharma for millions? Then the VA buys the “miracle drug” back from big pharma?!
      Then all of a sudden, Congress wanted to grill him over why he used VA equipment and resources! So, he retired quickly!
      I wonder, are these two VA employees going to do the same thing? You know, sell there “discovery” to some outside healthcare provider or big pharma, then make millions off the backs of veterans as test guinea pigs!?
      My mind is reeling from all the corruption, waste, fraud and abuse within our government agency – ie: “The Veterans Administration!

      • elf …It was the hep-c drug….Sold back to the VA for a 1,000 a pill. It cost them 94,000 to cure my ass of it.
        The doctor that prescribed them told me the price
        IT’S NO WONDER WHY THEY ARE ASKING FOR MO MONEY …..LOL

      • I know a lady who used SS disability ?Medicare? to take that hepC cure & she states she is cured but when I told her about taking it & having HepA – she knew nothing, wasn’t informed & she has HepA. So they are not getting full disclosure on the “cure” in the civy world. test subjects, more lab rats.

      • @NiteWish- It was actually Hep B that the new Hep C “cure” can activate and then kill you…a nasty little unexpected side effect not even tested on and found out when sold, branded, packaged, for highest dollar…then out in the wild, if you also happened to be Hep B+ it may be double trouble.
        My own private medical Infectious Disease Dr. could not believe Shinazi was a valid ID research Dr. for him to not catch that in testing. I told her that we veterans were the end test subjects in wild…last in class all the way.

      • thankx Namnibor, I get the Hep a, b c d e f’s confused. She has Heb B. Her being disabled, labeled a useless eater, already getting double hip replacements, why bother to tell her about nasty little unexpected side effects.

      • 2. Robert Duncan: Former CIA engineer Dr. Robert Duncan, who was involved in the research and development of “Manchurian Candidates” (i.e. mind control victims), has been trying to explain to the public over the years that the true state of current mind control technology defies imagination. It is very hard (and scary) for the average person to grasp how sophisticated the technology now is. Duncan reveals how a weapons system capable of totalitarian control has been constructed. He also reveals that many people are now in wireless mental contact with AI (Artificial Intelligence) run by supercomputers – people from all walks of life, not just poor people as was done in the past.

        Duncan worked with brain-to-computer interface technologies, things like remote mind reading, CIA hive mind experimentation (multiple people sharing the same mental space), remote targeting and tracking of people via their energy signature or “brain print”, remotely cloning or copying thoughts, emotions and other states (e.g. intense pain) onto a target, the “Voice of God” (piping information into people’s minds and making them hear voices), forced or induced dreams and OIW (Offensive Information Warfare).

        Like many other ex-Intelligence agents, Duncan was tricked into thinking he was doing something good for humanity while he was actually constructing a weapon of torture and control. Now he is trying to alert people to the horrific nature of this technology – before its too late.

After 10 years, she broke her silence on 9/11, revealing how George W. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld had decided to go to war with Iraq before 9/11 occurred. She also exposed how her CIA handler Richard Fuse made her deliver threatening messages to the Iraqis – even though they possessed no WMDs and had no knowledge of the hijackings. She confirms that the leader of the hijackers, Mohammed Atta, was a CIA asset. She was imprisoned for 2 years for her trouble.

        17. Ted Gunderson: Gunderson is a man who will need little introduction to many investigators in the field of conspiracy research, or to those who have looked into pedophilia, mind control, child trafficking and Satanism. He was a 27-year veteran FBI special agent who worked in the Los Angeles district with over 700 agents under his command. He has worked and done interviews/presentations with various mind control survivors (e.g. Brice Taylor, Paul Bonacci). Towards the end of his career, he stumbled upon the network of occult Secret Societies that rule the world. Through his investigations, he came to understand that we were dealing with a sick Satanic cult that uses mind control over its victims, conducts an international pedophile ring where children were abducted through underground tunnels, and performs dark rituals with human sacrifice and child sex slaves. At these rituals, Satanists get a dark “high” from drinking the blood of their tortured victims, which contains emotional neurochemicals released into the blood at the time of their death. With upwards of 100,000 American children missing every year, Gunderson claimed he knew firsthand that the FBI was fully complicit in the coverup of all this.

        SO KEEP YOUR HAT’S ON TIGHT…LOL

      • Seymore, good music list.

        “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqeunzogr1c”

        I think it’s sad, pathetic really, inexcusable, that so many veterans groups, the public, our government, the list of conspirators, officials, the many authority figures, sheep, and propagandist that can conceal and brain-wash the kiddies about some real history and the many people and media types that are corrupt cohorts to keep so many truths or facts from “public consumption.” Then to think these high ranking corrupt individuals and psychopaths can make it in high society, immune from prosecution, to making it to the highest levels of government or the churches, everywhere actually to rule over us or to socially engineer the near whole of U.S. society and every level of education. Even today vet groups and the facade of American government stands down when it comes to truth while throwing other veterans harmed by deceit under the bus. Guess those who have it made, simply don’t care, ordered to silence, benefactors from evil, and on easy street don’t want to upset the apple cart of evils and corruption.

        Repeat of a few for some wisdom reminders from inside the “deep state:”

        “The individual comes face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind has not come to a realisation of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.”
        J. Edgar Hoover

        (I have been there, seen it in more than one way, realized it fully, experienced it fully, fought it, fighting it all, got the hats, grey hair, scars, bought the T-shirts, learned the lessons well. Don’t shoot the messengers.)

        ” J. Edgar Hoover: When morals decline and good men do nothing, evil flourishes. A society unwilling to learn from past is doomed. We must never forget our history.”
        J. Edgar Hoover

        ” The Communist threat from without must not blind us to the Communist threat from within. The latter is reaching into the very heart of America through its espionage agents and a cunning, defiant, and lawless communist party, which is fanatically dedicated to the Marxist cause of world enslavement and destruction of the foundations of our republic.”
        J. Edgar Hoover

        Guess, to me, that includes the communist/socialist and filth at the VA and all those throwing those of the Liberty (and us here) under the bus, while praising the McCain linage. And the multitude of those history revisionist and evil pathetic liars and anti-Americans. Which are countless.

        Good day!
        Gotta go back to bed. Just had to pass this tid-bit along.

      • T, the Attack on USS Liberty recalled by survivor in town
        “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSYjTmV1G3U”

        “We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos & took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord & master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so — indeed we are held prisoner! They took us over because we are food to them & they squeeze us mercilessly because we are the sustenance. Just as we rear chickens in coops the predators rear us in human coops, humaneros. Therefore, their food is always available to them.

        Think for a moment & tell me how you would explain the contradictions between the intelligence of man the engineer & the stupidity of his system of belief or the stupidity of his contradictory behavior. Sorcerers believe that the Predators have given us our system of beliefs our ideas of good & evil; our social morals, they are the ones who set up our dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed & cowardice. It is the Predator who makes us complacent, routinary & ego maniacal.

        In order to keep us obedient & meek & weak, the Predators engaged themselves in a stupendous maneuver – stupendous of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist; a horrendous maneuver from the point of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind. The Predators mind is baroque contradictory, morose, filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now.” *Don Juan Matus * The Dragons of Eden

  63. To those following this McCain article and comments, I added updates to the post due to some confusion about glioblastoma, McCain, and my sentiment about his treatment of veterans while a Senator. Hope this helps clear up any confusion.

    The gist of the article was to highlight one main issue. VA tells America that VA health care is great, and even better than non-VA care at times… according to VA public affairs campaigns, op-eds, paid research and commercials.

    So why didn’t McCain get his treatment from Phoenix VA instead of Mayo Clinic in Arizona?

    Personally, I would do the same thing because I do not believe VA health care is as great as their public relations teams tell us. And, apparently, Senator McCain agrees with me.

    • Thanks for pointing that out Ben.

      If only the media would ask the same question.

      A +$25 million PR campaign does not equal better care.

      Frankly I think their track record on this is damn scary based on the stats Seymore posted.

  64. Personally, I feel they need to make plans to fill his casket with urinal cakes, or better yet bury him in a casket made of urinal cake material. That will be to help cover the stench of all the yellow salutes he so richly deserves.

  65. I may not be a fan of McPain and his boy-toy Lindsay Grahams. But I’ll be damned of I’m going to fuck with karma by celebrating him having brain cancer. Besides, l’m saving all my evil mojo for that miserable fuck Kissinger.

      3. Bombing Vietnam: “It’s wave after wave of planes. You see, they can’t see the B-52 and they dropped a million pounds of bombs … I bet you we will have had more planes over there in one day than Johnson had in a month … each plane can carry about 10 times the load of World War II plane could carry.” (link)

      4. Khmer Rouge: “How many people did (Khmer Rouge Foreign Minister Ieng Sary) kill? Tens of thousands? You should tell the Cambodians (i.e., Khmer Rouge) that we will be friends with them. They are murderous thugs, but we won’t let that stand in the way. We are prepared to improve relations with them. Tell them the latter part, but don’t tell them what I said before.” (Nov. 26, 1975 meeting with Thai foreign minister)

Dan Ellsberg: “Because that son-of-a-bitch—First of all, I would expect—I know him well—I am sure he has some more information—I would bet that he has more information that he’s saving for the trial.

      • That Jewluminaziburg mortar forker was in China in November of 73, which, by then,we knew with a certainty of China’s backing of the Khmer Rouge, and, that Chinese doctrine instructed the planned extermination of the educated masses – just like the Cultural Revolution. And that fuck still consumes air.

        LOL

  66. @Ben, In the mean time, I can only hope that I don’t succumb to the incompetent medical services from the VA. Presently, I have no 100% resource to get alternative care. I’m addicted thankful to the VA, my marriage is stressed thankful to the VA, my wife is stressed thankful to the VA, our K9 is supposed to be emotionally attached to me and to serve my fucking needs thankful to the VA, my musculoskeletal system has extremely deteriorated thankful to the VA, I get exhausted from walking 30 feet when going to the bathroom thankful to the VA, I believe that my life is in extreme danger thankful to the VA, there’s more but I don’t want to bore some of or stir up your missing compassion . . . but here’s the kicker . . .

    Warning; Due to sleep deprivation going on now for over 18 months, I’m unbalanced in thought. I consider the VA to be my enemy. And, I don’t trust my self being in the VA’s direct care.

    No FUCKING VA EMPLOYEE, whether a fucking traitor of a Veteran or not, is to fucking touch me. I have nothing left to give. I’ve been calling out to the VA all of this time, and they dropped my physical therapy. Why? Because they want me to lose more muscle and shrink away then expire.

    CJ, I want to give you a BIG thank you for being an excellent phone call Veteran and friend, and for not always reminding me (because I already know) that I need to get out of the VA.

    So here I lay, waiting for someone with authority, or influence, or a person that is qualified to be called a Doctor, to say, “hey, who in the fuck is responsible for medically taking care of this Veteran, HE NEEDS HELP NOW.”

    And then there are those that think, because he has been on pain medications for a long time, that Nutter isn’t thinking clearly. FUCKIN REALLY? . . .

    Then fucking out of your damn good heart and being the fucking dick of an observer and know it all that you are, then come and visit me to physically measure my muscle mass, joint angles, test me endurance and stamina.

    And, it give me no fucking comfort at all, that there are others that are in the same situation. What the fuck does that do for me by making such a stupid fucking statement? A statement like that only gives me more fucking anxiety.

    QUESTION: How do I get into the Mayo Clinic or to a dual diagnosis medical facility to properly treat me? Anyone?

    Ben, how about if we make out a Power-of-Attorney, and I’ll show you were are the damn fucking incompetent mistakes that have occurred. No offense, I’m only a fucking Investigative Research Biologist that don’t know fucking shit.

    Does anyone with connections care? Or do I need to treat myself by locking and loading. Then I can hear some on this site say, “well if that’s what you want to do, its your call.” Then I say to you . . .

    FUCK YOU BITCH ! Some ranting with a heavy dose of truth. No, thank you for serving. Meaningless.

    • ANutterVet, well I may well be one of the bitches. It upsets me when I hear any Vet wants to put a bullet in their body. There are other ways of self-deliverance when the suffering is too much to tolerate. Derek Humphry Final Exit is humane & straightforward. One of the men who released emails on Hilary used the method, he was going to die from cancer & it was in a news article BUT I know you don’t want to die, so just Don’t & pls don’t hate me.

      • @NiteWish – – – You not the bitch, I’m the bitch. LoL. Nothing personal to anyone. Its just that my what the VA states about my health, is extremely different from what I see with my own eyes, and what my wife sees as well.

    • Nutter, I wish there was something I could do more for you and others in your situations. About all I can do is raise some hell, write, tell my story, other’s stories, and complain about a myriad of issues. So far all it’s done is to create enemies and disdain from the culture of the corrupt and from those who claim to be “leaders” or special due to their silver spoon privileged upbringing or higher social status. It’s not fun living in a leftist, corrupt, globalist community being censored, attacked, ignored, and too costly even dangerous to attend town meetings or to try to get some truth out. Then anyone from the locals to Senators, Congress critters just want more record release forms to be signed by me and with no specifics given, end dates, or constraints. Opening up my entire life to what I consider to be my enemies and they have shown it time and time again. That includes MDs wanting the same releases of information for God only knows who will use the information and from where.

      I have already been to council meetings before and at stores, online too, having passers-by mention something about my health issues that could only come from VA or local leaks whose family members work in the health fields here. From both actually. Nothing like having local politicians stalk, censor, attack you, with full support from their attorney buddies and city cliques. So nothing or no-one here can be truly trusted and I don’t trust anyone here. Yet I am expected to keep signing open ended information releases before I get care or help from some corrupt politician which is old and a pure joke now.

      After what I have been through and seen others go through locally I find it difficult to have hope with any medical person here or contact for help. It’s all due to corruption, VA, medical boards, state agencies, to local doctors covering up for their professional cohorts or comrades. And not giving a damn. So what the hell is left? Nothing or no-one. I don’t recall any stories coming out about the VA telling McCain or anyone else to never use civilian care or a civilian emergency room or ambulance for care or a emergency. But to drive somehow hundreds of miles or more to Roudebush VA in Indianapolis, IN. It’s beyond insane or a mere break in communication. Then to cut us off from years of care and meds that worked to nothing but games and pure intentional incompetence and professional misconduct to total mal-practice.

      I talked to some local elites in veterans groups and a couple told to me call my Congress people and others and tell them “I was going to lock and load on their asses, or myself.” Then one higher up in the Legion said that is what he did to get some satisfaction. Yeah, right. I am not that high on the social status list, my picture isn’t always in the Legion magazine, on TV boasting about all the good the community does for vets, or well connected to get by with something like that. Then went on to say how local vet groups hands are tied politically and could do nothing. Yet, I see with the likes of McCain and the elite classes get whatever they need and desire which makes me physically ill. Like with Congress getting away with their special health care plans and have had for generations. One rule for them, another for us.

      For instance, the more I complain about censoring in Indiana it gets much worse:
      “Electronics may be banned from Vigo County courts;
      “http://www.tribstar.com/news/local_news/electronics-may-be-banned-from-vigo-county-courts/article_c09371fb-8cf1-5cd3-bad9-eee3547bd53c.html””

      Now they also want to pass those hate speech or hate word laws that will stifle communication and thoughts as well. Next the Marx feminist that rule the joint will have laws passed making it legal to slap a man for what he may be thinking, or for giving simple compliments they may not want from some old coot.

      The talking heads on TV said it was for court house employee, and our, safety. So cell phones will not be allowed IN THE COURT HOUSE not only in the court rooms during sessions. That is so no recordings of misconduct and corruption can be made. If anyone has never dealt with corrupt courts, judges, or clerks, they will not understand why this is just more censoring and oppressing some actions from the corrupt, legally or illegally. It is also why our news outlets don’t have comment sections, and the reporters always claiming the entire community seems to agree with whatever the corrupt do here. Like putting some veteran hack on TV stating the VA care here is absolutely fantastic and us with complaints are all liars. That is how it rolls here. The privileged, the un-affected, against those like us or against us who refuse to join the herd of corruption and other anti-American issues.

      Plus other ignorant stuff and attacks we have to endure or deal with:
      “Satanic Monument In MN Scrapped After “Free Speech Zone” Removed
      (An upturned military helmet?)
      “http://constitution.com/satanic-monument-in-mn-scrapped-after-free-speech-zone-removed/””

      We were told in 2015 before I quit the VA to never use the Choice Card. I wrote about before about them telling us to never use civilian care for anything including heart attacks to vehicle accidents. Like we would be involved in a car wreck and be able or have a choice to refuse civilian care or ambulance. Total insanity that no-one cares about but seems funny to most.

      Then the issue that is rarely mentioned being civilian MDs not accepting the card or the rate that the VA will pay for services so the clinic or MD will call and say they won’t take us on. If we do get to see the civilian doctor or clinic we have to sign the contracts to be responsible for left-over charges the VA won’t pay. So the problem is with the AMA and other so-called professionals too who are more worried about their high pay instead of decent health care or their oaths.

      Those like McCain, the local lefty cliques/professionals, country clubbers, ad infinitum, the Indiana cheerleaders/supporters/game players/lefty lying media types/censors, would not piss on me if I were on fire at the side of the road. They have proven that many times. And the media would not report my death or the commies/corrupt laughing at the sight of my burning. Living in this environment kinda makes one’s sympathies for the social elite, the privileged, well connected, the power brokers, the corrupt, fall short from what’s expected in proper… polite society, which I haven’t seen in many years. I digress. Sorry, for the lengths. If I am going through the pain and cramps to type and sit I have to go until I rant-out or can’t stands it no more. Thank God, and Ben, we have one forum to let some of it out at without being censored or threatened.

  67. This is what I email to POTUS . . .

    POTUS, you’re losing many supporters as time goes by. If you don’t fix the VA soon, you’re going to start losing more of your Veteran base. Get rid of Dr. Shulkin, he’s from the old school. VA needs proactive leadership that truthfully cares about Veterans. POTUS, you’re going to be a one-term President like George H. W. Bush if the VA doesn’t change. Do you remember the earlier part of the 90’s? I urge you to review the articles and comments at http://www.DisabledVeterans.org.

    I’d bet you that many Republicans are getting disappointed as well. May be if you focused more on the VA, and got that Agency running in the right direction, that this would obtain you more support on both sides of the isle. Do something that has some meat to it. Actions that Veterans know is the real deal. Don’t you do real deals anymore? Sir, you need reformers to make the VA run smoother. Enjoy your multitude of weekend vacations, while Veterans are wishing that you’d step up to the plate and take action on the VA.

    This is what one Veteran posted on July 17, 2017 at 1:33am on http://www.DisabledVeterans.org ;

    And, then I post James Clement’s post on how to “Fix the Damn VA.”

    I try to read every post, please keep sending the humor and dark side stuffs. – – – Thanks, Nutter.

  68. The Horrific Facts of VA Health Care Provide to Veterans Diagnosed with Glioblastoma
    ______________________________________

    It is a Scientific Fact that the Survival rates of Veterans receiving Health Care through the VA Health Care System for Glioblastoma are about a third of the rate for patients being treated in a Civilian Health Care Facility for Glioblastoma.

    The facts I am presenting associated with Glioblastoma survival rates and VA Health Care are based on two peer reviewed articles published in Scientific Journals and a VA News article on why Veteran’s survival rates are about one third of patients receiving Civilian Medical Care.

    ***From the First Journal Article Cited Below***

    analyzed 1,219 Veterans with glioblastomas diagnosed between 1997 and 2006. Median survival was 6.5 months and 1, 2, and 5 years survival rates were 26.8, 5.4, and 0.5%, respectively.

    ***From the Second Journal Article Cited Below***

    The Median survival time in months for greater than 65 years of age is 7.22 months.
    The Median survival time in months for less than 65 years of age is 17.70 months.

    The Median survival time in months Former Military 6.5 months
    The Median survival time in months No Military service 15.03 months

    ***From the VA News article on why Veteran’s survival rates are about one third of patients receiving Civilian Medical Care***

    “ATLANTA — Because of unique challenges faced by many veterans treated at VA, their median survival rate with Stage IV glioblastoma multiforme is half that reported by the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillancel Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) statistics.”

    “Median survival for veterans are 6.5 months, while one, two and five-year survival rates are 26.8, 5.4, and 0.5%, respectively, according to a study published last year in the Journal of Neuro-Oncology.”

    ““The tumor biology for veterans is not different than for everyone else, but the patients have different issues,” he said. “The longer survival rate seen in SEER probably results from complex therapy that is very challenging for veterans to receive — surgery, followed by radiation, followed by chemotherapy.”

    Economic and logistic issues likely compound physical complications for veterans, Adamson pointed out.

    “Because we’ve concentrated neurosurgery services in a few centers, many veterans travel a great distance to see us,” he said. “Veterans have more comorbidities that simply make it more difficult to progress through complex therapy for malignant gliomas. For patients with economic and other challenges, the treatment required to achieve the longer survival rate is likely too complex.””

    • From the Face Book Group “Vietnam Veterans with Glioblastoma Multiforme Stage 4 Brain Cancer” which is currently 442 members. To join the Group members are required to be either be a Veteran who is currently Diagnosed with Glioblastoma or being a widow of a Veteran who has died from the disease.

      Facts from their site:

      “Our group on FB is not a true representation of the masses of Vietnam Veterans we have lost to this diagnosis. We know the numbers run over 20,000 with GBM4 from 2012 and before. .

      We know for a fact that the number is in the thousands for Vietnam Era Veterans. Many Veterans did not even take advantage of their VA benefits, so therefore were not counted in the VA registry as a brain tumor statistic.

      The vast majority of these Vietnam Veterans have been diagnosed 30-40 years after there exposures to dioxin. This tumor slowly grows for many years completely asystematic.”

      “https://www.facebook.com/NamTanker/”

      • Seymore cited: “…The longer survival rate seen in SEER probably results from complex therapy that is very challenging for veterans to receive — surgery, followed by radiation, followed by chemotherapy…..”

        If surgery, radiation and chemo only buys 5.5 months (the 6.5 month versus 1 year survival), fuck it. Party down for two months and self administer a 9 mm blastoma blaster. I’d rather spend one good week with my wife and kids than have them watch me get sliced up, nuked and poisoned for six months.

      • Yep. Don’t want the families last memories of me to be watching me become a withered vine. Party hard, then go out with a bang. That’s the ticket for sure.

    • Unless you are a privileged Veteran able to skip right over to the Mayo Clinic for care instead.

      It just burns me up when a high profile person has an opportune time to not only make amends, but correct everything that’s wrong with VA Healthcare and VA in general, through his very illness he could further shed light and expose the fails and push for improvements….and you cannot tell me nor convince me that McCain is too busy or even oblivious to what’s wrong with the VA, let alone from 2014 in his own State of AZ…I think he has silver spoons for jaws and silver platters fro ass these days.

      I do not wish the man ill will, rather, I find it a huge shame that he wishes to be remembered by his Veteran community for being a self-absorbed ass all the way to the end.

      The media has not said one *peep* about why the VA was not being used by McCain nor anything about the ongoing scandal in Phoenix VAMC Wait Time crap…on McCain’s watch.

      Sorry for rant. In a mood.

      • It also brings to mind that my own father’s recent passing, he too, was unfortunately a self-absorbed ass all way to end and now in aftermath, my mother is having to spend oodles of cash on repairing critical things in house that even include basic safety repairs like locks…things that were broken for years…my dad even built that house by his own hands but…if something in life did not directly affect HIM, well, it did not matter then.
        *a snapshot of self-absorbed ass* McCain is same way. Drain on my brain.

      • @NiteWish- Yeah, and that POS cop is still refusing to speak to investigators. That police chief was protecting that officer as well. Really weird and volatile situation, as I imagine Minn. does not want a bunch of rioting on streets again either…

        More on the brain: Joel Pieper of the University of California & colleagues identifies a correlation between amygdala size and PTSD. They studied members of the military with mild-traumatic brain injury (mTBI) who were still active or retired from duty and had been identified with or without significant PTSD. In the findings, Pieper said: “Many consider PTSD to be a psychological disorder, but our study found a key physical difference in the brains of military-trained individuals with brain injury and PTSD, specifically the size of the right amygdala.”

      • @Namnibor – – – I feel sorry for the rest of your household. Unknown visitor who come a knocking, may yell, animal abuse, get that coon cat out of the house. The Kitty Kat’s father is letting it lose, the righteous smell will genetically mutate its neurons, and it will then transform into a killer machine of the Rat Bastards. Nam, wait for the changes, then let you killer kitty go in the halls of the VA. LMAO

  69. @Seymore Klearly – – – I wish no ill feelings against McCain, even though I despise what he hasn’t done for us Veterans, Veterans love ones, their children, and for the citizens of Arizona. Someone posted, God works in mysterious ways. And in my opinion, may be, even though Arizona politics is far from being compassionate, that McCain will have to step down because of his health. After all, my potential has been hindered because of my health problems. No need to be a hot-shot when you don’t have to. Thanks for the research papers that you listed with your post. – – – Nutter.

  70. Lets face it folks, McCain is going to go through, besides physical and physiological problems, a very straining and taxing trial of life. It is my opinion, that until McCain’s Doctors get him stabilized or that there is nothing more to treat him with, that he’ll not return to his Senate duties. The body can’t handle additional stress during this time. Going back to the Senate floor, the risks outweigh the benefits until further notice.

    The other issue about Glioblastoma multiforme, is that it is hard for Physicians to control its aggressive invasion of brain tissue. I can’t say for sure, but the all good sign for remission status of this disease, is basically non-existent.

    Lets hope that the Governor, if needed, selects a acting Senator that is Veteran friendly instead of being all VA friendly.

    Until then, McCain, you may want to think about the remission of not acting in the best interests of us Veterans. Then do something to REALLY reform the VA. “McCain, you may have to do this while your in this battle for you life.”

    I urge you to reconsider your previous stance on the VA. Think of your Brothers and Sisters, their spouses, children, and other love ones. – – – Nutter.

  71. Should I quit my job if I can’t do it but am not getting fired because my lazy supervisors don’t watch me? I don’t want the VA to think my PTSD got better and lower my rating because they think I’m able to hold a job. I have to lay down in handicap bathroom stalls to do yoga breathing every two hours.

    • @Lily – – – There is a difference if PTSD is causing stress that it TRULY interferes with your job performance. If your stressed Lily, I see no reason to act like all is well if it isn’t well. Nothing lost in admitting that it is hard to maintain, but then again I’m not you. Not much, but its what I have to share. Good luck and the best to you. I know from your previous posts, that your trying your best. You can’t do what you can’t do. No ill judgement coming from this Veteran. I completely understand. Its those that are too damn ignorant to even lay their eyes on such research information. – – – Nutter.

    • @Lily before you quit if you decide to ensure your medical & mental health document that PTSD is interfering w/your ability to function at work. ie.issues of anger/irritability at work, difficulty getting along w/bosses/supervisors/fellow workers, missing work due to ‘stressors’, depression, too tired from lack of sleep, self-medicating, that you need to be alone in the restroom for yoga.

      An eval of 100% is assigned when ever there is evidence of total occupational & social impairment due to symptoms as: gross impairment in thought processes or communication, persistent delusions or hallucinations, grossly inappropriate behavior, persistent danger of hurting self or others, inability to perform activities of daily living-including maintenance of minimal personal hygiene, disorientation to time or place, memory loss for names of close relatives, own occupation or own name.

      Hope that helps somewhat.

      • @NiteWish – – – My goodness, I deal with almost all of these symptoms and I’m in a hospital bed. VA knows about it, and will send no one because I’m not able to get to VA. My VA PCP knows this as well. VA has made promises to me that they were going to at least get me Tele-Video services. Then twisted it around and act like they never made the promise, even though one Doctor and a Outside Program Director were involved to help me with such service. Liars. No fucking heart.

        “Mr. Nutter, I’m sorry but we don’t offer those types of services, nor do we have any staff that visits Veterans at their residence.” All the same time, when a neighbor with severe PTSD gets visited by VA staff. I talked with the Veteran, and seen the VA car in the parking lot before.

        Oh, and thanks for chiming in on with Lily. – – – Nutter.

    • Apparently even former CIA Director David Petraus got in on the fun.

      “http://dailytrojan.com/2014/11/04/david-petraeus-speaks-about-military-healthcare/”

      • During the lecture, Petraeus and Puliafito discussed the status of veteran affairs in this country and medical support for service members.
        “There’s no doubt that we need to do more, but there’s also no doubt that we have done a great deal, and we’re in the process of doing even more,” Petraeus said. “The challenge, though, is that we have people surviving that never would have survived before … leaving the battlefield with life-altering injuries and wounds.”
        Petraeus cited improvements in battlefield response times due to improved technologies and medical knowledge as the main reason for the increased survival rate for service members who suffer serious injuries in combat. He said some of the worst damage can be the lasting psychological impact after soldiers return from combat.
        “It’s actually when that individual goes home, and the band stops playing and the flag stops flying,” Petraeus said.

      • Petraeus said. “The challenge, though, is that we have people surviving that never would have survived before … leaving the battlefield with life-altering injuries and wounds.”

        The VA and all Military Branches should be prepared no matter how many of our folks survive on the battlefield. They are responsible. Medical recovery teams should’ve already known that with todays technology that there would be more of our folks surviving. Another miscalculation and skewed information to give them a pass for not keeping up with what they should’ve been doing in the first place. Bull shit. Rat Bastards.

      • @Seymore Klearly – – – Dag nab, I sold them all the lab glassware to make crystal and rock. How did you know? LoL

        Let’s see, they get paid for not working, get bonuses, ice cream, bring their children to work, and now their selling drugs at the VA? Can they bring their dogs into the workplace. I like dogs. I’d even take another pain pill so that I could get into the VA for an appointment only if I knew that the VA let our fantastic, well trained AFGE Union employees bring their pets. Would you like a biscuit? – – – Nutter.

      • Given he ran the USC Keck School of Medicine right smack dab in the heart of Congresswoman Maxine Waters district. We now know where she was getting her Ideas about Guam tipping over and sinking to the bottom of the ocean.

    • Of course with the more than $1 billion in research dollars he was responsible for Bringing in, with a major chuck coming from the VA, he just had to party a bit.

      The Drugs and the orgies I am sure helped ease the pain of knowing Veterans were going untreated and laid suffering and dying. Veterans who surely could have been helped if some of those party bucks were spent to help provide care.

  73. @Seymore Klearly – – – With all of the corruption that has been published, Ben’s articles, yours and many others research on the VA, it makes one wonder, how far, wide, and deep does this all go? Can’t trust anyone in the political spectrum either. – – – Nutter.

  74. Does anyone believe any of them even have Veterans on their evil little minds. Of all the posts, I don’t understand why there is no coverage of these acts against Veterans. Keep reporting, and reach out. The secrets John McCain will take with him are splattered with Veterans blood. Truly, John McCain’s death isn’t that much of an event. He’s basically dead now. God Bless the Veterans and their families…

    • I’ve been saying the same thing. One day, someone with the authority is going to kick those corrupted ones in their damn butt and take names later. Remember, No Accountability (breeds) = Corruption.

    • Jo3n,

      They all most certainly do have Veterans on their minds. To them we look like dollar signs, paychecks and bonuses.

  75. Here’s something I learned last night. It seems IF President Trump fires Mueller, or anyone connected to the “special council”, there might/will be “rioting in the streets!” That was from: “Not Fake News” and other websites.
    The “Extreme left” is still going after President Trump, and his family, on fake news articles. Which is exactly why there’s so much bias against our POTUS.
    ______________________

    Also, during yesterday’s White House Press briefing, Sarah Sanders was asked IF President Trump, or anyone colluded with Russia and proceedings get underway for any legal action against them, will pardon himself or anyone else? Sanders stated that it would be his constitutional right to do so!
    (Paraphrasing what the wife and I heard and saw on utube videos)!

    Lastly, from the “Doctor of Common Sense”, he described in about 7 minutes the two most hated groups in America!
    Would it surprise y’all those two groups are:
    “VETERANS AND CHRISTIANS!”
    For approximately 7 minutes, “The Doctor” spoke about how our government and a large part of our population “Hate Veterans and Christians!”
    Even though it was/is these two main groups who keep our “Constitutional Republic” safe from those willing to destroy ‘her’!
    The problem I see with his opinion is, we have reprobates in all corners of America. More specifically: The Veterans Administration being the most corrupt and egregious (non)government agency/entity around, being run by the most corrupt and egregious union around.

  76. @Crazy elf, even hated more than Muslims. These are peculiar and confusing times. I should have stayed Catholic. Or, are they Christians also. I’m more Spiritual than Religious. It’s early and already 90`. Enjoy your weekend..

  77. I get a feeling, Senate and house like the VA the way it is. President Trump, I chose to believe in good faith, made promises to Veterans he was never going to keep. The first week he was in office, along with hundreds of things he’s said, he said the laws are broken. Someone had given him a welcome speech. How can we, Veterans and Christians, be hated with all those propaganda dollars being spent, by both. @Crazy elf, was that the VA? Or, was it Veterans? Reach out and inform..We’ve a long road ahead..

    • @Jo3n,
      No, it was specifically – “VETERANS and CHRISTIANS” Americans hate!!!!! For 7 minutes he explained how a growing segment of the population here a !

      Enjoy!!!!!!!

  79. My father was a veteran and I was a staff surgeon at the Central Texas Olin E. Teague and the Houston VA’s – I worked at both for free while having a primary appointment at a nearby University hospital. I took care of many, many veterans at these two institutions, most with very bad problems (I was a chest cancer surgeon). I have never worked for a more appreciative or resilient group than the patients at these institutions, and I am proud to have had the opportunity to care for them.

    John McCain has a fatal disease. No matter your feelings about him – the things you think he has done wrong or has done right over his career, he is a human being. It would be great if the commentary could be tempered. The escalating level of inhumanity and lack of empathy for one another – almost everywhere – in this country is both astonishing to me, and decidedly not in the American tradition.

    Debate, argue and even tactfully criticize if you must – I firmly believe in all of those – but denigrating and demeaning people when they are down really serves no useful purpose.

    • Dear Mr. Smythe,

      I applaud your service to America’s heroes. Thank you for your tireless efforts, battling this horrific disease, it truly knows no boundaries, or demographic.

      This is where I find fault with your argument. John McCain is a human being and because he has a fatal disease we should suddenly and unequivocally find support and compassion for him in this difficult time.

      Where was John McCain’s support and compassion for his fellow veterans when they where in dire straits and in need of compassion and support?

      I would like you to show me in any rule book where it says disease warrants compassion and sympathy? Is it next to the rule that states because a woman gives birth to you, you must consider this person as your mother?

      John McCain has used his position and his authority to further his own interests and carreer. He cares nothing for the american people and despises that noble and heroic creature, the American Veteran. How do I come to this conclusion you may ask? It’s simple really, his inaction and his silence.

      As far as the escalating inhumanity and lack of empathy. Get used to it. This younger generation being raised by clueless idiots who don’t know how to parent let alone instill moral values and ethical behavior, will bring about a massive sea change onto our society as far as morals and ethics are concerned.

      I’m glad McCain has a glioblastoma and It makes me happy that he will soon go in the ground. I will not apologize for my stance on the issue and I will not tone down my 1st amendment right to express myself.

      You certainly have the right to not listen to anything I or anybody else says on the matter but as far as “simmering down” goes I’m sorry, I don’t owe you or anybody else that.

      As far as serving any useful purpose…venting does wonders for your mental health, unlike the VA.

      • Wyldechylde, up to the point you “are glad” I agree with you. I wish no ill health or bad outcome on any human no matter much of the dark side they display. Rather, I would like to look at their good points and ignore the bad if the bad only affects me.

        But I feel it incumbent upon me to defend others, especially our veterans, who have been abused by the selfish entitled elite.

        It is true, many excellent physicians got their training through VA programs and as an appreciation give back to veterans. Especially those who subsequently rise to high levels at University (teaching) Medical Schools.

        Yes, some VA Medical and Research Centers have abused their access to Veterans. The West Los Angeles Veterans Medical and Research Center had its license (including the UCLA Medical Center) to do research lifted for abuses in the latter half of the 1990s. That doesn’t mean that all of the teaching and research physicians at UCLA Medical and WLAVAM&RC abused their access to veterans for research. What it means is that even after warning to cease and desist (probably the neurological studies that were being done at the time)

      • @Roy Smythe – – – Come and evaluate me, read my notes, and if you don’t tell me that that the VA has totally dropped the ball and ignored my cries for help, I’ll give you $500 cash. Seriously. Its right here.

        VA has never measured my muscle mass or joint angles. I’m a Investigative Research Biologist (a distant colleague at least), so I’m 100% sure that my medical condition has extremely deteriorated.

        I’ve called my PCP, the third party Nurse that visits me once a week, I called the VA Nurse Line, Suicide Line, to no avail. My knows told me that the VA is the worst client that she has ever worked for. She doesn’t know what to do. Plus, supposedly she has documented my condition.

        Smitty, can I go to the Mayo Clinic or elsewhere to get immediate medical attention? Does your compassion reach out to me, to help my wife, and my K9 PTSD-Alerting Service Dog?

        Seriously, will no ill intent, if you evaluate me, and agree with the VA of my current treatment protocol, I’ll give you $500 in 5, $100 bills. In no way is this trickery. I give you my word. All I want you to do is to observe me as I show you how my body has been broken down. That is all that’s to it. Simple.

        Please post your response. Thank you. – – – Sure, I’ll be there, with a name like Nutter.

    • As a Veteran who has been left disabled by being used as a guinea pig by a surgery performed at a VAMC by a doctor connected to a university. I will never know a day without pain and limitations because of that surgery. Let me say that your bullshit about working for free at a VA Hospital is just that bullshit.

      Given your connection to a University at the time you claimed you worked for free leads me to believe that you are the kind of Doctor who was there to use us as guinea pig.

      To top it off your pubmed history confirms it. Fucking Asshole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • @Roy Smythe,
      You might want to be careful coming into a “vet centric website”. Where veterans who are extremely adept at locating your bio is easily accomplished!
      It actually makes someone’s comment stand out in the realm of stupidity!
      I also am of the opinion “Songbird McCain needs to go straight to fuckin hell!”
      And IF you can’t understand that from my many previous comments about him – then fuck off asshole!
      Lastly year I gave one of the “ulogies” (sic) at my “brothers” funeral. He died of cancer because the alleged physicians at the Daytona Beach VHA misdiagnosed him! Even though his wife, a nurse, argued that the physician was wrong, my brother died a HORRENDOUS PAINFUL DEATH!
      So, fuck VA, and fuck all the assholes who defend the VA!

      P.S.
      Seymore IS definitely correct about you!

    • Dr. Smythe What did you take away from the DOD molecular therapeutics lab. That research been going on since 1959? Did you help in making the vaccines… gene transfer/editing… stem cell manipulation….ohhhh
      never mind I just remembered the phrase “if I told you, I’d have to kill you”

      You’d be better off being grateful. If we all were CareGiver Types we people might all be DRs & you’d have no job security; no power over human beings.

        Titled;

        “McCain Blasts White House on Syria a Day After Cancer Diagnosis”

        McCain also spoke about there being NO military solution for Afghanistan in this article.
        So, since it was done before McCain had some brains scooped out, I kinda agree with the authors of both articles!
        I also agree with most veterans I know, and other Americans, that McCain is a fuckin traitorous pig RINO to his own party!

      • Crazy Elf, McCain running his mouth about Afghanistan is an example of what I just commented on.

        He was one of the big cheerleaders of bombing the Hell out of anyone shortly after 911, including Afghanistan.

        After 8 years of ignoring that shithole and Obama trying to draw down the military there so he could claim he won that war…a period of which McCain was rather silent on many military issues….McCain now wants to act as CinC again?

        McCain’s mind was rotten long before his brain rotted.

    • I think the senile fuck got a easy out, never did a hard days work in his life so he’s got a little pain with some good pain med’s and does a exit stage left, meanwhile the rest of us have to deal with the shit day in and day out……NO I don’t feel sorry for him, He’s had a good life of screwing people over…Does any body think there going to not die….DEATH IS PART OF LIFE, SO GET OVER IT U CANDLE LIGHTER’S
      ………..GET ME OUT OF THIS FUCKING HELL HOLE ………..
      IF I WAS HIM I WOULD CALL UP THE BOYS AT THE COMPANY..THE IMPORTING DIVISION AND GET ME A KILO OF THE GOOD WHITE SHIT WITH A NICE BIG STRAW,,,,FUCK THE CEMO YOU WON’T FEEL ANY PAIN, JUST DO THE SCAR FACE THING……….BESIDES HE SHOULD KNOW THE OLD SAYING NO PAIN NO GAIN………..

      THAT’S MY ONE CENT WORTH IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A HALF CENT BUT I DIDN’T FEEL LIKE BREAKING OUT THE HACK SAW

    • Crazy Elf, McCain has blasted various Presidents for various military issues going back many years…often Presidents from his own party, and often because his own personal interests are being affected.

      In this latest example, McCain is bitching about Trump shutting down a CIA program that was supposed to be arming “moderate” Syrian rebels. What interest does McCain have personally with that program?

      Rather than publicly blast anyone, the damn fool should find out why it was shut down. He would likely end up with stink on himself because the program was ineffective, which likely means weapons ended up in the hands of those who might use them against us.

      I believe there is a DOD program that does similar things which is more effective.

      That isn’t the first time McCain has pulled a stunt like that.

      As I said, McCain has pulled this stunt going back to at least the first Gulf War, often causing significant problems for those on the battlefield…which are often never connected to his temper tantrums by the media.

      McCain has fucked up more military actions overseas because of his ignorant, uninformed reactions, without any thought to those injured or killed because of those fuckups.

      I believe he was a big reason any US action was taken in Syria.

      Interesting that he was so silent on what was going on in Benghazi.

      Those soldiers who often are sent to the battlefield for these little tantrums will be much better off when McCain is finally tits up pushing daisies.

      Those wanting sympathy for McCain’s current plight either ignore or don’t care about the deaths he has caused.

      • 91……….. What interest does McCain have personally with that program?
        Just pumping up his stock portfolio …THE GREEDY BASTARD

      • Oldmarine, I haven’t seen details on what his interest is yet, but he was involved with this from the start when he was helping Obama and Hillary fuck things up in Syria.

        With many of McCain’s actions, it’s like he has some childish need to play military commander, and wants to throw the game board off the table if the game doesn’t go his way.

        Again, I think McCain was involved with Obama and Hillary in Benghazi, which is why that investigation went nowhere. There have been reports of Benghazi being used as a staging point to funnel weapons to the rebels in Syria…which fits right in with what McCain is currently sniveling about.

  81. Ok, I’m weak. Sometimes a willow wisp, for reasons like, life changing events such as knowing when you will die, can have mysterious and unexpected results. If, the fear of God, or just can’t stop thinking about what knowledgeable Veterans are thinking and saying about him. I think Veterans everywhere should send, email, cards, call, just get the message out to John McCain, we hope and pray that John McCain will do right on earth, do the hard thing. Tell everyone the truth. His truths are, so far, buried deep in lies and cover-ups. In my mind, John McCain stands there, hand out to shake hands, many hands.. all dead ; motives behind their deaths? Classified.. He has/had value. Wanna be soldiers and most Women love a hero. His allegiance is to himself, to cover up his past and his true identity; a pampered and cowardly liar. Can’t say how many times over the years I gave him the benefit of doubt. For John McCain, I pray you find the courage to set the record straight.

    • @Jo3n – – – The benefit of the doubt has never helped me when dealing with people or organizations that has deeply buried the other side of their history. A pancake has 2 sides. I hear you Jo3n.

      I want to personally thank all of you, keep the pressure on the VA. – – – Nutter.

      • Ah, but wise man must realize quite often a pancake indeed has -3- sides, as there’s that often questionable cooking skill that leaves to question of an ooey-gooey center, only slightly moist, or dry as chalk.
        If said pancake happens to have the singed image of the virgin mary on one side only, then that may even qualify as a -4th- side.
        Pancakes are a deep subject I take with most passion and we haven’t even gotten to syrups yet…
        …also, coming from a farm background, one has to take in consideration that some pancakes in life are in-fact cow patties. Same dimensional qualities.

      • ANutterVet ….SSRI’S……….””Don’t Need It!

        “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA1mbZ_MMh8&index=4&list=RDhou0lU8WMgo”

    • Jo3n, McCain will never change. He is too bitter, and his latest statement on Syria proves it.

      As for the good Dr. Roy Smythe commenting here about simmering down…He should ask himself, how many veterans have I treated over the years that were injured because of another McCain tantrum?

      How many of those veterans could have gotten better treatment if McCain had spoken up on their behalf demanding better care?

      McCain consistently stayed silent on those veterans medical care because he knew the money spent on veterans might be one less dollar going towards his own pet projects.

      One might point to early McCain support of the Choice program, but that too was support designed to mislead. He supported Choice early on because he knew what a shitstorm Phoenix could be, and he wanted no fingers pointing at him showing the inaction by his office.

      Besides, some friends of his would be in on the gravy train he was starting down the tracks.

      • Besides, Phoenix based Health Net got half of the contract for Choice. And McCain upped his campaigned chest.

      • Lem,

        While Health Net does administer the choice program it does not cover Arizona.

        Triwest Health Care Alliance is the administrators of the Choice program in Arizona and 28 other states.

        TriWest was founded by former McCain senatorial aid David McIntyre. Currently David McIntyre (President and CEO of the TriWest Healthcare Alliance). TriWest was originally founded in 1996 when it began administering the nations Tri Care program. A contract they lost to United Health Care after poor performance.

        Although they had a long history of performance and legal problems with subsidiary they were awarded the administration portions of the 28 states with Health Net covering the remainder.

        Health Net was United Health Care.

        So for the poor performance of the Choice program in portions of 28 states Veterans can thank Lame Brain McCain and his former Aid David McIntyre.

  82. Hey, brothers and sisters,
    I subscribe to a website called “Right Wing Voice”! I just received their email about 30 minutes ago. One of the titles was; “Veterans Affairs $2 Billion Gamble With Our Hero’s Lives” caught my attention – Big Time!
    Naturally I clicked on it and it directed me to another website, called “TownHall.com”!
    The title is;

    “Veterans Groups Urge House To Reject Plan To Fix VA’s Budget Gap!”

    AP News | July 22, 2017
    By Hope Yen

    Two Quotes from the article are:
    “Right major veterans’ organizations on Saturday urged Congress to provide emergency money to the Department of Veterans Affairs without cutting other VA programs…”
    Then later in the article “…To offset spending, the VA would trim pensions for some veterans and collect fees for housing loans.”

    Does this sound like “Shithead Shulkin” isn’t giving up on fucking veterans: 1.) on removing those elderly vets, age 62 and older, off “IU”!
    And 2.) what’s this crap about “…collect[ing] fees for housing loans?”

    Sounds to me IF “Shithead Shulkin” gets his way, more taxpayers monies are going to disappear into the corrupt abyss of the VA!

    As far as these eight VSO’s, sounds like their members are getting fed up with all the bullshit coming out of their mouths!

    This article is a must read for everyone!

    • @Crazy elf – – – Why does Shulkin and the VA’s witch craft management, always want to take away benefits from Veterans? How much money does an average Veteran make a month? I have relatives and friends that have retired from Uncle DuPont’s, and many make over $80,000 a year. I would imagine, that most Veterans make less than $2500 a month. I could be wrong, I’m guessing at this figure.

      • @ANutterVet,
        A vet who’s 100% T&P makes about $3,000/month × 12 = $36,000/year. Which is right above poverty level!

        As far as to “WHY” ‘Shithead Shulkin’ is attempting to destroy veteran’s, only God knows the answer to that question!
        Until something is done to stop him from destroying veterans, the shit will continue!
        ______________________

        On the lighter side, if there is one, have any of y’all seen the movie:
        “The Purge”!
        There’s three of them out now on video.
        The Plot is simple. First, it’s set in the future. And, for one day a year, for 24 hours, committing any kind of crime, including murder, IS legal.
        (Note: The only people that aren’t allowed have crimes, including murder, committed against them are – wait for it – POLITICIANS! )

        The second one,
        “The Purge” – “Anarchy”,
        is a little less complicated. It’s where many people realize the rich are behind it all. So, there’s a push by PATRIOTS to stop the rich bastards from killing the poorest people!
        In this episode, and is noteworthy, is that one of the rich people looks like Hillary Clinton!

        The third one is called;

        “The Purge” – “Election Year”

        The wife and I haven’t seen this one yet. We should be getting it on Tuesday or Wednesday this week. I can only imagine what this one will be like. I’ve gotta sneaky suspicion it’s gonna be about PATRIOTS going after the politicians!

        Well, that’s all there is that’s worth discussing tonight. Hope y’all are safe!

    • Rat Bastards. I do not think the VA knows what kind of revolutionary fuse they would light when and if Shulkin gets his way. I’m seeing red. Lots of red.

      • @Namnibor – – – We’ll have to guide on of these pukes close to my bed, and then I’ll grab their corrupt ass, jab my thumbs into their eye socket, and scratch their brain to knock the life out of them. Then watch as their body’s nerves makes them quiver. I second it, only with the “Dirty Rat Bastards.”

        The VA’s Nurse Hot Line and Suicide Line is a façade. Fake PR image of non-action response for help. A fucking joke. Come see me mother fuckers. I’ll even give you a FREE Italian Meatball Sandwich. Then as you walk out my door, CJ will have a bead on you, and then I’ll wait for a splat sounding noise. Give them a roll of paper towels to wipe up the red viscosity fluid.

  83. With Russia and McCain dominating the airwaves 24/7, there are other things going on in the world that require reporting – – – such as this item that will NEVER make the MSM “News”.

    “http://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2017/07/veteran_found_dead_of_suspect.html”

    What has our illustrious SucVA have to say about this? Is the demise of another veteran in a VA parking lot not deemed “newsworthy”?

    • From the ‘SUICIDE IN PARKING FACILITIES: PREVENTION, RESPONSE, AND RECOVERY’
      Veterans Administration Medical Centers Due to the increased risk of veterans bringing harm to themselves because of their physical and emotional trauma, the prevention of suicide in VA parking facilities is a specific goal of the VA Parking Design Manual. This includes consideration to preventing an individual from causing harm to himself by jumping from an upper garage level. The VA uses façade screening for both aesthetics and safety including closing openings at covered parking levels, as well as the roof.

      The KEY wording in there is ‘Consideration’

      The 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Military veterans press #1
      Was probably put on hold after pressing #1.
      RIP

    • Fricken VA, this happened last week and is just now being mentioned that an email went out about the Veteran. No name just that another Veteran is suspected of committing suicide in their parking lot.

      But hey nothing to worry about, the city of Ann Arbor has come up with a solution, as it deals with spate of deaths in parking lot structures. There going to put up signs.

        “http://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2017/05/preventing_suicides_from_ann_a.html”

      • @Seymore Klearly – – – Veterans are just a number, a figure, a stat for the VA. Especially those that the VA uses to make their Opiate Free numbers to look good. That is, in the VA’s favor. Pisses me the fuck off, the way that these incompetent SOB’s structure their damn madness.

        Like many has said, one day, the color red will not be for sex, but for revolution time. Yes!!!

  84. All one needs to do, is to visit a VA facility to see the Patient Advocate about the safety measures that the Medical Center has implemented to help reduce the suicides that occur on VA Property. I bet if you go and check, you’ll NOT be amazed on their preventions. You’ll most likely be pissed from what they HAVE NOT done to prevent such.

    The suicide is a joke. Phone Peeps can’t even determine when a Veteran is stressed and needs assistance. Nor do they know how to tactfully ask a Veteran if they want to go into the emergency room. I know when I call, my PTSD symptoms are off the charts and I don’t trust anyone. And yes, there were times when I wanted for someone to answer, put on hold, and received a recording when I called.

    • The VA is actually more concerned the dead veteran corpses will block some of the parkinglot solar panels and cause some engorged purple team to have to cease intake of donuts to clear it off to discover it’s a veteran’s body.
      Rat Bastards! Yeah, in a fucking mood!

  85. What Veteran doesn’t go through some type of stress when dealing with the VA. Here is a link that describes the 4 different types of stress. I experience all of them.

    “https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/albrecht-stress.htm”

  86. Benjamin Krause is hardly what I would call an objective person.
    He ranks up there with the best of the whistleblowers to be sure, however he also has never met a FUNCTIONAL VA health care program he couldn’t wait to tear down.

    If you ask me, Benjamin Krause is probably in favor of Team Trump’s plan to abolish and destroy the VA altogether and replace it with a for-profit voucher driven program that will eliminate 60% of all health care for disabled veterans due to lack of profitability.

    CASE IN POINT: My own wife Karen Mitchell Haas.
    She has had SIX lithotripsy procedures (kidney stone removal) in seven years because her one functioning kidney just seems predisposed to making stones no matter what she does to prevent it.
    A free market voucher solution will kick her disabled ass straight to the curb because it will hit a lifetime treatment cap so fast it will make your head spin.
    She has secondary progressive multiple sclerosis…no expensive miracle drugs for secondary MS-ers, only Remitting Relapsing patients.
    She also suffers from radiation poisoning, paralytic bone osteoporosis and acute muscle spasms.
    NONE OF THESE ISSUES are PROFITABLE to the private health care sector.

    So, as much as I “get” why Benjamin Krause is angry at McCain, Krause is the worst friend a disabled veteran could ever have, because despite all the flaws and issues the VA has, it IS STILL CAPABLE of delivering quality care and treatment. The only reason my wife and I are alive today is because of that.

    • VSO piggy wiggie troll!!!!

      Currently you are living with the results of the care provided to your wife at the VA.

      “She has secondary progressive multiple sclerosis…no expensive miracle drugs for secondary MS-ers, only Remitting Relapsing patients. She also suffers from radiation poisoning, paralytic bone osteoporosis and acute muscle spasms.”

      You really should look outside the VA for proper medical care. Instead of finding excuses, just do it.

      • Sorry I stand corrected, you are not only a VSO piggy Troll Jeffery Joseph Haas. You are also a lying piece of shit.

      • What the hell Seymore? McCain gets a brain tumor and the trolls come out of the woodwork….. unbelievable.
        There has to be more to this “season of the trolls” then meets the eye, also the vindictive attitude towards Ben, I gotta be missing something. Could it be that McCain has been the problem with the VA all along? Now that he is on his last crooked leg, are they worried a big change is coming? Shure the hell seems that way, just my gut feeling. Knowing how Ed Crosby was treated by McCain, and ever since, there has been nothing but cover ups, no accountability, most of what’s wrong with the VA has all been on “his watch” something to ponder…

      • Since the march of the troll patch dolls is so vapid because of McCain’s brain pain, it’s more likely than not that McCain surely is part of the needed to be drained swamp filled with various swamp beasts and trolls…and proves McCain is one of the original trolls to escape the silver spoon laboratory beaker in Muppet Labs.

        ~~~Gurgle~~~

    • So like many VSOs, as long as your wife is getting care, the rest of us are just shit outta luck and we should just shut up about the malpractice and illegal denial of benefits?

      You should read a few previous articles there Haas and see what Ben has done for veterans. The biggest change affecting the most veterans that Ben directly forced the VA to address are TBI veterans.

      Traumatic Brain Injury veterans. Given your wife is dealing with kidney stones, you may have never met a TBI vet. If you would have, you would realize the impact Ben has had on forcing change.

      TBI veterans, and their families, are impacted a damn sight more than hubby dealing with his wife’s kidney stones.

      TBI vets range from minor TBI which might affect thought processes, speech, motor movements, learning ability, comprehension, etc., to more severe where the veteran may be completely incapacitated.

      These veterans families were the ones having to care for their loved ones, because the VA committed fraud in these veterans using unqualified hacks to conduct their examinations, often causing incorrect diagnoses leading to incorrect medical care and greatly reduced benefits.

      Ben exposed that fraud. The VA was forced to admit it, and forced to offer new exams, to whatever poor bastard they might have been able to contact.

      Imagine little wifey being unable to work, just partially incapacitated and you having to care for her full time because the VA committed fraud in her examination?

      Good for you and your wife that she is getting the care she needs when she needs it, but many veterans are not that lucky, and the burden is placed on their families.

      Perhaps you might read up on some of that so you won’t sound so fucking ignorant.

      A family dealing with TBI and not getting appropriate care is a damn sight different than hubby dealing with his wife’s kidney stones.

    • @HAAS- Agent Orange or kidney stones? TBI or kidney stones? PTSD or kidney stones? Medical Error making a given Veteran HIV+ and a Hep B+ for lifetime of fun or….kidney stones? Self-absorbed, incorporated or all VSO’s that way having ingrown asses?

    • OldMarine, My mom’s Catholicism had her in prayer, not so much obedience & generous financial donations until the tumors grew out her chin & started leaking from the holes, that’s when dad said enough & to the doctors they went. Pray didn’t save, the DRs only extended life that had no quality to it. At the age of 12 I abandoned Catholicism.
      Thankx for the link its been sent to my niece as it contains info on Zoloft and also for the hilarious video responses LMAO this am

  90. Read all about what the VA pushes …SSRI’S
    SSRI Stories | Antidepressant Nightmares
    “https://ssristories.org/”

    Warning

    Adverse reactions are most likely to occur when starting or discontinuing the drug, increasing or lowering the dose or when switching from one SSRI to another. Adverse reactions are often diagnosed as bipolar disorder when the symptoms may be entirely iatrogenic (treatment induced). Withdrawal, especially abrupt withdrawal, from any of these medications can cause severe neuropsychiatric and physical symptoms. It is important to withdraw extremely slowly from these drugs, often over a period of a year or more, under the supervision of a qualified and experienced specialist. Withdrawal is sometimes more severe than the original symptoms or problems.

  91. We all know that the criminal psychopaths who populate the government will stop at nothing to achieve their sadistic ends. But you’ve gotta vote for someone, right? So why not vote for the criminal psychopath that promises you free healthcare? Or maybe the criminal psychopath that promises to keep you safe from the big, bad turban-wearing (Gladio-sponsored) boogeymen? Anyway, I’m sure it’ll all work out…
    OOOOOO That terrible BOOGEYMAN….Conquer Fear and Live Free!

  92. SSRI’s – – – A bit back, I posted a post about how the VA is now using SSRI’s, and having those Veterans taper off of other Pain Medications. As a Biologist, I’m totally against the use of this class of drug due to many negative factors that are attributed to them. YouTube this phrase, “withdrawal from SSRI’s.” You’ll be Audio – Visually maddened pertaining to the side effects of these types of medications. I am.

    The VA is at fault for using many types of medications at what is called “off script.” This means to use drugs for other treatments besides what the FDA has approved them for. Conclusion: using Veterans as guinea pigs to see if using SSRI’s will work. Truth be told, how can one (1) SSRI treat a multitude of symptoms? SSRI’s require a load up and time phase to see if it will work. For some SSRI’s, this can take between 2 – 8 weeks, and again this depends on how each individual person responds to the SSRI’s.

    And, if the first SSRI doesn’t work, then the loading and waiting time starts all over again when trying another SSRI to see if it will work. Therefore, there is a extensive length of time to even determine if these types of medications will be effective. I doubt it, especially for those Veterans who have multiple health symptoms.

    • ANutterVet Veterans & Civilians being put on gabapentin to replace pain meds has many downloads on YouTube. So Sad the Veterans & others will realize the error too late.

      Articles on service dogs are rare but I have one, here is the link “http://www.10news.com/news/team-10/veteran-with-ptsd-says-her-service-dog-didnt-help-her-anxiety-he-made-it-worse”

      • @NiteWish – – – The problems in this situation is two-fold, (1) improperly selected and trained K9, and (2) the inexperience of the Marine in knowing what to look for in a Service Dog provided by others.

        This is why I picked my own puppies. My current K9, even though emotionally connected more to my wife than me, still obeys my command to alert me for any living traffic through the community.

        Its too long for me to explain right now, lack of sleep, but personally, I hold the VA responsible. The took me off the medications that were working for me. I couldn’t get pain and severe muscle spasm relief. Started to become sedentary. Called out to the for over a damn fucking year with no action. Now the VA is trying to look like they are a champion of my healthcare. Far from it !!!

        They can kiss my fucking ass. I bleed out the first mother fucker that touches.

      • ANutterVet , The dog needed to be neutered before it started humping her. It will not outlearn the behavior. I have a cat that growls whenever there is people, cars, animals in her hearing range with is very good hearing, very good watch cat. All 4 cats are so unique in their behavior.

  93. @OLDMARINE – – – I forget to share with you, “thank you for commenting on SSRI’s.” Information on SSRI’s needed to be repeated over and over, to solidly get this message out so that ALL Veterans, love ones, and friends, can be informed. Thanks again, Nutter.

    • ANutter……………. Military / Veteran | SSRI Stories
      “https://ssristories.org/category/occupation/military-veteran”

    • Link at the bottom, I guess we, or you at the VA still will have it made now under Shulkie. I won’t hold my breath. It’s from Federal News Radio.

      SSRI withdrawals…. one (more with each type or combination of kickers like Ambilify or something I was told were wonder drugs for pain) of the worst I have ever experienced and more. Or being told to try a few of them at the same time while put on Trazadone and other goofy stuff that totally ruins your life and activity, to being near total non-functioning. If I didn’t try them or try them again since long past civvy care I was told it would go in my folder as being non-compliant or uncooperative with medical advice and workable treatments for chronic pain and major depression that always comes along with chronic pain issues.

      At the pain clinic orientation we were told that we quote..”would be forced, ORDERED, to use SSRIs even if we have tried them before for pain but had very severe side effects. I questioned the PoS about it and he said the same goes for us who have tried them before. He said the entire process would be required again or lose our care. So the Marxist and fascist scum at the VA and those “at the top down” who gave them this information to pass on to us are lost causes and should be fired. Who the hell is the VA and staff to tell us, or use the words “force you” or “ordered.” Like we are still on active service or some kind of dogs they are dealing with? But it all seems fine to outsiders or those “at the top” meaning what I was told from various people. IE those in DC, the president at the time Obummer, the DoD, heads of the VA, then told it all included state agencies like our AG, veterans groups, veterans affairs state agencies, Congress critters, LEOs, medical boards, to Homeland Security who are seemingly over every damn thing. Then all the while they all pass the buck and blame all the others. Funny stuff if it wasn’t so darn serious.

      The above, the games, threats, being ignored, threatened, a shattered jaw from dental, scum of the Earth Purple team/Patient Advocates, and Golla I had had enough and have not spoken a word with any VA staff since. And told them why many times and that I would never speak to VA staff or those in government or medicine again unless it was recorded or on video, period. Then the games began with civilian care and the covering up for the VA, passing the buck, blame, excuses, etc. But then everyone seems to want open ended releases on my information before anything is done, with nothing really being done when I agreed. Then the first thing out of my new found and tried civy PCP is “you need Gabapentin and anti-depressants.” “You are on anti-depressants aren’t you?” Heck no. I informed him and the nurse I could not take Gaba due to side effects. They called me later and said they called in something for pain that I could pick up. It was Neurontin something but basically Gabapentin again and called in to the wrong pharmacy too. Oh well, done with it. No luck and Murphy’s Law.

  94. Right now: On “Face The Nation”, they spoke of Sen. John McCain’s numerous “surviving disasters”, to include *only reporting on tidbit* McCain SURVIVED the Forestall Ship Fire…NOT A PEEP that McCain was primarily responsible for said fire…IT WAS WHITEWASHED HISTORY…RingKnockers, Inc., have succeeded, and NOT A PEEP about why McCain would choose NON-VA Healthcare as a Disabled Veteran…nor…NOT A PEEP about 2014- Phoenix VAMC Wait Time Scandal Ground Zero and still spitting deceased Veterans out…not a fucking peep.
    They painted it as McCain has always been a survivor and a Veteran’s Veteran….WTF?!

    • In the early days of computers there was enough information online to make a good American and veteran puke to read or look at documentaries about how PC-ness was to come about, groups and foreigners bragging about their powers to corrupt education, college groups that were to bring about the new Marx-Kalergi-Ayers-America, rewrite history, how Trilateralism would make us part of Mexico and Canada (super high ways/corridors) to the long list of government officials and groups pushing for it, who bragged about controlling our government and media. Israel having a leaking nuke plant while claiming not to have nukes or American tax aid. To Hanoi Jane coverage – her lame apologies to Songbird’s camp-mates who told some truth about his special treatment and how his injuries occurred. A couple were very good black and white filmed documentaries and video/photos from the times explaining it all. All probably flushed away today or kept in a secret bunker. Some real eye openers but I guess all gone from sight today. I can’t find any of it today.

      There were camps advertising for certain religions, peoples/foreigners, activist, to be trained in urban combat/psych warfare complete with auto weaponry and explosive devices. A lot has been white-washed and pulled from the open net. Then all of a sudden that seemed like a week web sites were closing down and changing their information online. I guess they discovered their tactics, agendas, activism, etc., were being spread around too fast and revealing too much to the sheeples and citizens considered to be their enemies.

      What was once open info on the net without worry or apologies are now called “Conspiracies,” hate thoughts or speech, offensive, emotionally harmful, or not PC.

      Now it’s all denied and not to be found. Or at least the info and links I had saved over time.

      • T, 777,000 tons of water tainted with tritium, a byproduct of the nuclear process that is notoriously difficult to filter out of water, will be dumped into the Pacific Ocean as part of a multibillion-dollar recovery effort following the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011…..
        “https://peakoil.com/enviroment/fukushimas-nuclear-waste-will-be-dumped-into-the-ocean-japanese-plant-owner-says”
        And ‘they’ say tritium is Not That Bad, the ocean will dilute it before reaching West Coast.

      • I wonder what new US Navy maneuvers will be planned in the area to test our Naval personals exposures to the dumping?

      • Symore, they will probably say that any form of nuke exposure is good for us all. Raise exposure limits, tell sailors and vets the problems they may be having, or their kids, is all in their heads, smile and be happy.

        We never hear much about the fires at nuke dumps, or the many issues we have in the USA from our own nuke plants or used rod storage. Or of the drums of nuke waste they dumped in the ocean years back, and just how long those containers will last. May God have mercy on future generations unless they all start waking up instead of hating on us old folks. I think governments have let a cat out of the bag we will never see contained or safe to be in the environment or eat a fish. Some people I talked to at the VA while out having a smoke over the years having issues with “unknown environmental illnesses” should be big news but isn’t. The public doesn’t want to hear of the many issues they/humans/troops/civilians/babies are having after using depleted uranium warfare, the countless problems from Fukushima now, etc. They, some think, you can burn off or filter exposures away like from water, but that is total bs. More people need to listen to people like Helen Caldicott that have been trying to warn the public and governments for years.

        Thanks for all the info you take the time and energy to post.

      • Crazy Elf, this article sums up all the garbage and fake news or white washing we have been born to accept as “truth” or factual. From McCain, war crimes, central bankers, the VA, it nails it.
        McCain family, VA, Congress, to locals, they will never allow the “truth.”

        “When we can no longer tell the truth because the truth will bring the whole rotten, fragile status quo down in a heap of broken promises and lies, we’ve reached the perfection of dysfunction.”
        “https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/07/charles-hugh-smith/can-no-longer-tell-truth/”

        Truth to free speech, even though the SCOTUS says we are to have “free speech/expression” is still unwanted, forbidden as we can’t attend local meetings or expect any real needful or useful news. Or local, states, keep passing laws and ordinances to be tolerant of everything, to be a sheep, passing hate speech crap, or making it illegal to offend anyone especially the corrupt, professionals/greed who got us all in this mess, and the VA.

        It would help if we could expose things like the McCain family, spread it far and wide, the mainstream fakes to jump on some truth for once, to at least cracking the door open to why the people aren’t allowed to digest the huge problems we have like white-washing issues, the many cover-ups, half truths, to the realization of just how fractured the “machine” or “establishment,” all the “complexes” actually are. Truth is offensive and ignorance is truly bliss. Ahhh nearing the end of my life living, actually seeing, a 1984 scenario (about 70 yrs old) actually come to full fruition. While the majority doesn’t care. Some global community we are forced to live in. I was really hoping stories like with the VA or things like McCain, to Fukushima, or the like would wake more people up, guess not.

      • OldMarine, yeah, I had to stay sit down until I finished reading it, and now paying for it. Damn neck and body is turning to concrete.

        I’d make some flyers of that article and pass them out but I’d be arrested/fined. The SCOTUS says flyers are legal and part of free speech but not locally. It’s illegal here and I’d be arrested and fined per commie/Marx city ordinances and local colleges/media/councils/vet groups/lefty thugs, etc., hate truth to down to Earth common sense information. Indiana is as bad as Californee…. if not worse.

      • T……I had neck pain so bad I couldn’t lay on a pillow,The VA kept telling me arthritis ….
        I had a eye exam and they told me my eye pressure was a little high, but they have been telling me that shit for the last 5 years without doing anything, finally after 5 years of it being on my problem list they give me eye drops, cut my neck pain in half, crazy shit those eyes..nowwwww its arthritis but i can deal with that…get your eyes checked….just a suggestion ……..I guess they want us blind, so we cant hit our target…LOL

      • @OLDMARINE” The hell you say, “not hit our targets” Feel the force Luke, Move from surgical steel to a Blunderbuss, where there is a will there is a way. Blunderbuss not working? Grenades, no grenades? use your truck, To blind to drive? Set traps and lure them in with a nice fat dooooooooooobie. Feel the force!!!!

Only the wealthy can afford the new norm. If you save up some pennies, you can still afford a 338 Lapua Mag, but your glass, like a fine piece of ass, is not cheap.The rest of us need to be able to sneak up close, and be able to reach out and touch you from way beyond the practical designated sweet spot of your given weapon, 1600 meters with you 308?

      • T….The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy.

        Obama, the humanitarian huckster-in-chief, weakened the United States borders for eight years presenting his crippling policies as altruistic when in fact they were designed for destruction. His legacy, the Leftist Democratic Party with its “resistance” movement, is the party of the Humanitarian Hoax attempting to destroy American democracy and replace it with socialism.

        Open borders for “suffering” refugees is the humanitarian hoax of the 21st century. The Leftist humanitarian hucksters and the colluding mainstream media present sympathetic images of displaced refugees seeking shelter to seduce the American public into believing that their open-border policy is humanitarian and the epitome of human kindness. Even Elmo gets a prime-time interview on CNN to encourage parents to reinforce Sesame Street’s message that refugee children are just like them – another generation of indoctrinated youth.

      • @T: T, here is some truth, McCain’s wife has a masters in “special education” It all starts to make sense, I knew I saw Johnny on the short bus to DC!!!!!

      • What I’ve heard the ‘younger’ folks say about all the monstrosities is “What does it matter. You can’t DO anything about it. Stop worrying about it” I don’t agree with the you can’t do anything part but I respect their thoughts on the matters.

      • Many today have the attitude of nothing to do about the monsters/evil/bullies in America. So party on. So they must be all about self and letting things get worse and worse through their lifetime then try to blame it all on older folks for doing nothing. For which older folks before me did nothing, the good ones too stayed silent, kicking the cans of evil to my generation or to me to deal with. That gives way to the … if you can’t beat em’ join em’ attitude. “Be silent or face liberal hell.” That oh well, corruption and playing the modern games of our very sick society pays off and keeps the activist and fascist off our backs. Or doing whatever it takes to fit in, starting in first grade of school. Surrendering our own personal constitutions and soul to jump on the many bandwagons that do nothing but serve corruption, various forms of bullies including government/education, and the corrupt. Don’t say negatives about Indiana or the VA, or congress critters. Do nothing or face retaliation and disruptive committees or the grand smear campaigns that are well designed and supported by many.

        Yes, we are bullied and forced into bowing to the VA, lousy modern health care, to smart meters. No escaping all or any of it but we can at least be vocal and try to spread some info, to encourage others to learn something new outside of their leftist or corrupt agendas or news that makes them feel comfy. May seem to do little but we can… do. When we can. We weren’t born to be door-mats for all others, or slaves for some empire, VA scum, or establishment.

        That also means countless people have died in vain while media and puppets keep hollering about how free we are or that our fate is only in our hands. Or as the propaganda and whine about the elite or special interest being offended then demanding more restrictions on free thought, free speech, etc. To thinking like Obummer stated that the youth should teach the older folks, their parents even, about how to think, to change our “out dated ways,” to totally conform to their (the youth) agendas or communist/Marx/Bolshevik propaganda teachings in education. Throw in entertaimment, “professional” groups, and Hollywood in that mix too. I find few things today, or people, to respect easy enough, while the majority, the youth, attack or diminish my rights, freedoms, or life in any way possible. The new day medical students, the divas, those with the bedside manners of a rattle snake at the VA and civilian health care shows that there is little room for respect from me. The youthful medical professionals and others colleges are pushing out today have much to be desired, changed, and not much left to be respected. Their oaths seem meaningless to them with near zero integrity, honor, morals, decency, or truth about them.

        Perhaps my attitude or ways come from many years dealing with corruption and the youth, running in recovery circles, in the gutters with various sorts, to going into institutions discussing many issues and life with messed up youth to younger adults. Or living in a totally corrupt college town with three major universities for higher social engineering, minors in dumbing down, with majors in everything anti-freedom, bullying incognito, hate whitey, hate vets, hate Christians, anti-Americanisms, Pro Antifa, anti-truth, activism for all our enemies or friendemies. Most of them (lost youth) not fitting in or sorely confused about life in general. Having no hopes but stuck with high education costs/massive loans, social engineering, forced to appease the commie professors, being shoved aside – institutionalized by jet set crowd parents, abuse by state agents with immunity security from damages and nasty foster parents, seeing no way out of cacophony of evils, bullying with the ‘can’t do anything to stop us rhetoric, suffering severe cognitive dissonance, forced to living lives of lies to fit in, to many of them just wanting to die to get away from it all. Or to dope up, cut, other risky behavior, or booze up till they do get their last desires. There is seemingly no end to it all. Nope, can’t respect the increase of youthful culture, or globalists attitudes that produces that.

        Can’t respect college town living where the youth, colleges, the commies, forcing us to live by class room projects for all, or expected to live life like on a college campus for all our years…with the fascist pigs, the corrupt, Antifa types, bullies in local government, the youth, youth/commies in control of media locally, in total control basically. That also includes the masters who think their two years in the Peace Corp equal two years of those in military combat, which to me is total bs. Who also spout “we must stay on the same page as socialist or as a college community.” “You can not do anything about upcoming changes for the better of all in our community.” Or…. from the masters and youth…” We don’t need freedom of speech, truth in media, or the Constitution.” Or, youth to Marx-feminist who think like Oprah when she stated that “all old people just need to die off.” Yeah, so the brain-washed, idiots, the youth, evils, corrupt, can rule the world unhindered without one squawk of defiance.

        Insiders are trying to break through the walls of disinterest, distractions, the herds, to expose greed and corruption we are forced to deal with: He is another one who is …. doing.

        Like I”ve said. I am going to squawk till they kill me off. I can at least – do – that much. Picture me that little mouse on the old T-shirt that had the Eagle coming in for the kill of a little mouse giving the finger to the Eagle. With the T saying “the last act of defiance.” That would be me and my attitude with my own personal constitution that the youth, the corrupt, hate.

        When I woke up to the vastness and depth of corruption, evils, I have said, wrote, and thought. ‘The final products of advanced civilization is evil and death.’ That includes the macro and micro issues we face today. The only way out is by God or the youth (sheeples) to wake up, fast. Or for mother Earth to puke human beings off her planet.

        Took me a few hours but this is my morning rant Good day folks.

      • T……The criminalization of political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the West. In France, activists have been arrested and prosecuted for wearing T-shirts advocating a boycott of Israel. The U.K. has enacted a series of measures designed to outlaw such activism. In the U.S., governors compete with one another over who can implement the most extreme regulations to bar businesses from participating in any boycotts aimed even at Israeli settlements, which the world regards as illegal. On U.S. campuses, punishment of pro-Palestinian students for expressing criticisms of Israel is so commonplace that the Center for Constitutional Rights refers to it as “the Palestine Exception” to free speech.

        But now, a group of 43 senators — 29 Republicans and 14 Democrats — wants to implement a law that would make it a felony for Americans to support the international boycott against Israel, which was launched in protest of that country’s decades-old occupation of Palestine. The two primary sponsors of the bill are Democrat Ben Cardin of Maryland and Republican Rob Portman of Ohio. Perhaps the most shocking aspect is the punishment: Anyone guilty of violating the prohibitions will face a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison.

        BEWARE OF THE PEOPLE YOU CAN NOT CRITICIZE

      • OLDMARINE, Yep, it’s not that hard to see who the real terrorist, fascist, tyrants, supremacist, rulers, shadow government is: Israel. And all our so-called ‘sacred cows.’

        We aren’t allowed to criticize much in Indiana or the college towns, or where the real supremacist have control. I have some stories about dealing with those we are not supposed to challenge, question, or try to get some justice done in our courts. Then to face the old standards of retaliation, games, activism, and hate kinda parallel to what the VA and our politicians to the media uses.

        Wish I could just just sing Hakuna Matata or Kumbaya, let the world go to hell without a worry or concern. But then I couldn’t sleep nights or live with myself knowing what is going on with few caring enough to learn some facts about “life” or the grand ol’ USA of total deception.

    Just goes to show you, we are the LAB RAT’S…….not in his records kind of tells the whole story

      • I wasn’t asking which posts weren’t informative. Just please point out the ones that are! Hate to have to go through all to find them including my bull.

      • @Lem – – – Its not all about you. People, like myself, use this board for any type of information. Whether it relates to the article or not. It doesn’t bother me. Build a site of your own. And, you know that Ben doesn’t monitor or filter the sites contents. Pluse, you never know if the contents will help you or not. In a nice way, chill out mother fucker.

      • Did you follow the answer up to the question, Nutter? We are way beyond the “article” and well into small talk just to be talking. So what?

      • @Lem – – – Hey man, I just reread you second post from above. You statement is contradictive. First you complain about the comments that don’t apply to the article, and then when @Seymore Klearly calls you out, you send another post admitting that you do the same thing. You can’t have it both ways. So, if you would’ve evaluated your own actions, you would’ve not posted your first comment. Something to think about wouldn’t you say?

        And, I’ll admit, when you post pertinent information an even though I can understand the contents, others are taken a back trying to understand some writings that should go in a scientific paper. Write like the articles in a newspaper. I say this, because others wish that your comments were clearly written, instead of having to go and do additional research to understand what you posted.

      • Yeh, I use a lot of medical terminology. Habit of 13 years doing nothing but and then getting my head screwed up a little. After that 13 years another 43 years trying to figure out what screw came loose in the TBI. I often forget who the audience is. Corpsman up follows as well as a Dr. or two that have posted. But I suspect the Drs. only look at one or two posts and respond to defend themselves. Soon driven off by the negative hateful responses. I wish I could quell my hate from mistreatment long enough to pick their brains a little for more information. But I’m as bad at it as any of the rest that have been mistreated.

        But if you have the afflictions I’m referring to in the post you can learn the language to talk about them if you want to. Otherwise just skip over the technical words and you’ll still get the drift. You don’t really have to look them up to get the drift of what I’m saying. You really don’t have to know what a fallopian tube is if I’m giving a nurse a hard time.

      • ANutterVet

        Although some of his post seem impressive that is because he runs them thought his batshit crazy bullshiters baffle system before posting.

      • @Seymore Klearly – – – Yeah I understand and hear you. Lem and I had this same discussion about the professorship writing, when it can just be written so many, not me, don’t have to spend more time to get the gist of it by doing more research. And, @Lem already knows Ben’s no hold bars with HIS site. Its called, IDLE BITCHING when you already know the rules.

      • @Lem – – – Yeah Lem so what that others put additional information under the articles. Who knows what information others may need. Even if it is humor, old rock music, or what have you. I know you have TBI, and me, I’m crying out for help due to the VA’s direct negligence in medical treatment. When I first started to receive care from the VA, I was able to do almost anything that others could do. Now, I’m exhausted from walking less than 30 feet.

        Like I said, I understand your condition, and I do hope and wish that you get all that is due for you and your family. Lets not beat around the bush, if you can comprise a good informational research paper, you damn well can come down a notch to direct the information to others. Like I stated, we discussed this way far back.

        I didn’t mean to make it harsh, and I can’t monitor others health condition when my life is deteriorating daily. Sorry for getting a little to lost in my emotions. I forget too.

      • Had that experience with exhaustion. And a weird experience. Set up for a treadmill test on the same day as fasting labs. No problem with the treadmill? Took me 3 days to figure out the difference was I hadn’t had my 6 cups of very thick coffee on rising.

        Looked up the side effects of lamotrigine and caffeine. Both have the side effect of “difficulty breathing.” Went to decaf for coffee and a couple of weeks later had to quit the lamotrigine. Now I can have a couple of cups of normal strength coffee in the AM since I was changed from lamotrigine to Keppra.

        May be worth a try changing to decaf.

      • I changed my diet about 3 months ago. Did many trial and errors, and bingo finally got it right. No coffee, figured out how not to need laxatives and stool softener, and had more regular bowel movements. Then VA changed my script, and now my whole fucking digestive system is out of whack, again. Nothing else irritates me more than the fucking incompetency of the VA, and their uncompassionate behavior towards Veterans. But yet they cover each others ass like they are sheets of the tp roll.

        I already shared with my wife, told the Nurse that see me once a week, to keep ALL VA employees distant from me. I’ll hurt them if they touch me. Already have my metal and other gear next to my bed, just waiting for them to fuck up again. VA, bring it, you fucking pussy asses.

  99. Hey Elf

    To be totally honest it wasn’t only $50 million that they are withholding. It is actually $350 Million. It is the remaining funding that hasn’t been paid out of the $900 million budget approved by Congress for this year under the Obama administration for funding the, so-called, security operation in Islamabad dealing with the Haqqani network and Lal Masjid (translated: Red Mosque).

    Some of the now Famous people formerly from Islamabad and leading members of the Red Mosque who have touched the American Public’s hearts in all the wrong ways. Osama bin Laden and Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a former married couple who were living in the city of Redlands, California that targeted the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health Christmas Party.

    Tashfeen Malik was in charge of women’s studies at the mosque when she met Syed. They married and she was allowed to enter the US on a marriage Visa waiver. Of the 4 other members of the six-person cell in San Bernardino two female members entered the country using J1 Visa Waivers. They were employed by Malik at her cell phone kiosk at the local mall. They both married two other members of the cell and had filed for permanent residency on marriage Visa waiver. One married the person who purchased the weapons, tactical gear and ammunition used in the shootings. The other married Syed brother. The marriage were annulled due because they were only for immigration purposes.

    Now for “some of the soon to be Famous” still alive people, connected to the Red Mosque in Islamabad. All here on Visa Waivers most issued by a Hillary State Department and Obama Administration. One issued back when Billy Clinton was still president and he even worked in the Administration as an aid to Hillary.

    Imran, Abid and Jamal Awan and Hina Alvi, Natalia Sova and Rao Abbass will soon all be known as the Red Mosque affiliates who hacked Congress and all their dirty secrets.

You might want to watch her full interaction with the Chief as she is trying to intimidate the chief by invoking the wrath of the Democratic Black Caucus and the threat of calling in BLM against the chief. Also, her threatening to make his job difficult by going over his head then she even tries the treat of going under his head to the police union. That happened before she made the clear threat.

        Most of the compromised congressman and congresswomen are members of the Democratic Black Caucus group.

        I love how the Chief just takes it all in stride. The calmer he is the more pissed she gets that he isn’t afraid of her.

    “EXCLUSIVE: FBI Seized Smashed Hard Drives From Wasserman Schultz IT Aide’s Home”
    Luke Rosiak
    Investigative Reporter
    “http://dailycaller.com/2017/07/23/exclusive-fbi-seized-smashed-hard-drives-from-wasserman-schultz-it-aides-home/”

    “FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to an individual who was interviewed by Bureau investigators in the case and a high level congressional source.

    Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, the individual told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

    The congressional source, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.

    Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.

    Awan’s younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, Imran’s best friend, are also under investigation. There have been no arrests in the case.”

    “There is also evidence of financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan, where Imran spends significant portions of the year.

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said in March that the Capitol Police are “getting the kind of technical assistance they need to do that. This is under an active criminal investigation, their capabilities are pretty strong but, they’re also able to go and get the kind of help they need from other sources.”

    The brothers’ stepmother independently filed court documents in Virginia accusing the brothers of wiretapping and extorting her.”

    “oon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, his two brothers and two of their wives — plus Abbas and another friend — began appearing as IT staffers on the payrolls of other House Democrats. Collectively, the Awan group has been paid $4 million since 2009.

    Fellow IT staffers interviewed by TheDCNF said the Awans were often absent from weekly meetings and email exchanges. One of the fellow staffers said some of the computers the Awans managed were being used to transfer data to an off-site server.

    Shortly after the criminal probe was revealed in February, Imran abruptly moved out of his longtime home on Hawkshead Drive in Lorton, Va., and listed it for rent on a website that connects landlords with military families.

    One of new tenants — a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer — said he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.”

    The tenants called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and not long after, FBI agents arrived together with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident.

    “It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”

    Wasserman Schultz resigned as DNC chief in July 2016 after the committee’s IT system was hacked. She has since refused to fire Imran despite learning that he is a target of a criminal investigation.

    The Marine said Imran wanted the hard drives back so desperately that he threatened to sue the renter for stealing them.

    “It was unbelievable. I don’t know where they get off thinking they’re going to sue us for items we have no obligation to hold onto,” he said.

    Imran came to the house for the items “three to four times,” but the Marine wouldn’t let him enter.

    “Their lawyer contacted us today via email and said we owed $350 in late charges and the items he left in the house,” the Marine said.

    The Marine heard about the House investigation on the radio, and by that time, he had noticed other bizarre signs of desperation from his landlord.

    “When we first moved in, a mailman came with certified mail from the House of Representatives. We were trying to be nice and signed for it. They lost their shit, saying ‘why did you sign for it, this is illegal!’ It was certified from the [Chief Administrative Officer of the House],” he said.

    “The postman came a second time with a certified letter and I called Imran on the spot, asking ‘what do you want me to do.’” He said ‘just send him away, I’m homeless.’ They refused to forward their mail.”

    Imran’s brother Abid has also been evasive about his location, failing to provide an accurate address for delivery of court materials in a lawsuit in which he is accused of defrauding the brothers’ stepmother. Imran’s wife, Hina, has traveled to Pakistan since the probe was revealed, according to neighbors.

    Wasserman Schultz has demanded return of a laptop seized by the Capitol Police because it was purportedly used by Imran and was found hidden in a vacant office. The Florida Democrat used a Capitol Police budget hearing to threaten “consequences” for them if the laptop wasn’t returned.

    On Thursday it was reported that police have not examined its contents because of the invocation of the Constitution’s “Speech and Debate clause,” and after months of refusal, her lawyer is now “negotiating” access to the data on yet-to-be-determined terms.

    Members have been unusually mum about the apparent cybersecurity breach, especially given the pattern of cyberattacks on other government and political institutions.

    The Marine expressed disgust with the muted reaction, saying “I served in the Marine Corps for 14 years; if I downloaded files to an offsite server, I’m going to prison for a lot of years.”

    He implied he’s a Democrat but said when it comes to national security “political ideology doesn’t matter.”

    He believes “there’s no way they could get this far without help” from some of the Democratic members of Congress for whom the brothers worked. Other Democrats have ignored a major security breach because it could look like a “black eye” in that they failed to vet the Pakistanis, he said.

    “He’s dangerous. This is a crime syndicate that has successfully indicated Congress,” he said.

    “If Donald Trump and the Republicans had hired foreign nationals to be their top IT guys and somehow their congressional files had been compromised, this would have been all over the news,” he continued.

    A Bureau spokesman said the “FBI does not have anything to provide on this and I will still have to refer you to [Capitol Police] for any public comment.””

    • Blabbermouth is batshit crazy if she thinks any threats are going to work.

      The hard drives in the rental is new information, and having a Marine and Naval officer who understands national security issues living there is icing on the cake.

      Blabbermouth can whine all she wants about speech and debate over a laptop, but I think they have the motherlode with those hard drives. And any off site server if they can get to it.

      What’s interesting is how far Blabbermouth is willing to go. In my opinion, it points to some serious problems with data…and her being blackmailed.

      Some of the other House members involved show some serious problems as well.

      It makes one wonder what they had on Little Debbie since she was the start of this, and it looks like she greased the skids for them to work for other members.

      I think in a lot of respects, this will be worse than Bubba Clinton allowing missile tech to go to China for donations.

      • @91Veteran: “Blabbermouth” LOL, if anyone needs a good laugh, look up on youtube “The Honeymooners, Blabbermouth” Good way to start the day…

        When will the DC cops “DOJ” stop handing out tickets “pardons” to these damn criminals “political hacks from all sides”, and start slapping steel around their limp wrists? Since we are in such economic despair, to save the people in taxes, bring back public hangings, or firing squads. Hold a fund raising campaign to win a chance to either pull the damn lever, or pull the damn trigger………

        For those many deserving politicians, and friends of. purchase or convert, some federal land into a sort of wild game preserve, to release these bastards/bastardettes into, then hold a lottery to see who gets the privilege of hunting them down. You get to chose whatever mean you wish, from a bayonet to whatever your twisted side, can conjure up.

        Yes……a “new world order” is on the horizon, just not the NWO, they were thinking of…………

      • cj……..a “new world order” is on the horizon, just not the NWO, they were thinking of…………

        LMFAO ON THAT ONE……….. good one indeed

      • Have to fully agree with you 91Veteran. This will be worse than Bubba Clinton allowing missile tech to go to China for donations. From the equipment being found it seems like the computer that is in possession of the Capital Police was likely a relay node leaking everything from the Congressional staff using the computers.

        Given the $900 million payroll for ISIS being approved last year. Clearly some Congress people were being blackmailed. Also, it did take votes from across the aisle so the Republicans likely have the same problems the Dems do. That must be why the Republicans are not screaming for a more intense investigation.

        Also it seems clear that Democrat Committee members on certain Congressional committees were targeted. So no doubt their Republican counter parts were likely also targeted but by other means.

        From what I am hearing and seeing Bubba Clinton allowing missile tech to go to China for donations, the clear blackmailing of members of Congress pales in comparison to the Pentagon’s investigation showing the transfer of cutting edge Hypersonic Missile Technologies to Russia Via the Clinton State Department and Obama’s Russian Reset. The Hypersonic Missile tech does effectively render our missile defense system useless.

        As far back as July 2013 the pentagon was aware of the leaks. In an insight paper from the United States European Command titled Russia’s Skolkovo Innovation Center;

        “Although military activities are not an official cluster of activity, the Skolkovo Foundation has, in fact, been involved in defense-related activities since December 2011, when it approved the first weapons-related project—the development of a hypersonic cruise missile engine. The project is a response to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Advanced Hypersonic Weapon, part of the Prompt Global Strike program. Sophisticated physical security, consisting of cameras, thermal imaging, and alarms, also suggests that not all of the center’s efforts are civilian in nature.”

        Currently high-level personal connected to the pentagon have spoken out about the advances and state that Russia now have this tech deployed. Also, that the tech can penetrate our Navy’s shipboard defense systems.

      • Seymore, that laptop acting as a relay node explains some things I’ve been wondering about for some time.

        News reports said it was found hidden in a crack in one of the congressional buildings, and your post said it was found in an empty office.

        I always wondered why some IT admin would leave such a device either in a crack or empty office.

        I also wondered how they could have found it if hidden in a crack.

        If it were acting as a relay node over a Wi-Fi connection, then yes, it could have been used to exfiltrate data, or provide remote access to congressional systems.

        It also could have been how the system was found if forensics showed data sent over a Wi-Fi connection. It was then a matter of tracking where the other end of the signal was.

        If it were a relay node, I wonder which House members IT system was found to have a Wi-Fi device attached to it.

        As for the missile tech, it reminds me of the Russian Shkval torpedo.

        “Hillary’s Hypersonic Missile Gap”
        Diana West Author, American Betrayal
        Daily Caller
        3:12 PM 03/21/2017
        “http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/21/hillarys-hypersonic-missile-gap/”

        “Starting in May 2010, The Washington Examiner reported, drawing on emails obtained by Citizens United, “Clinton Foundation staff pushed Hillary Clinton’s State Department to approve a meeting between Bill Clinton and a powerful Russian oligarch as her agency lined up investors for a project under his purview.”

        His name was Viktor Vekselberg of Renova (a Clinton Foundation donor) and the project under his purview was the Skolkovo Innovation Center, which is being built near Moscow. The following month, Bill Clinton would receive $500,000 for a speech in Moscow from a Renaissance Capital, a Russian investment bank with ties to the Kremlin, a Clinton Foundation donor, a Skolkovo executive, and which talked up Uranium One, whose sale the Clinton State Department would approve, and whose executives together contributed $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.

        This shocking set of emails that the Examiner reported on shows the nexus of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Bill Clinton, Russian oligarch Vekselberg, and Skolkovo, “Russia’s Silicon Valley,” the Putin project to transfer Western technology to Russia that was championed and driven by Mrs. Clinton — and, what do you know, 17 out of 28 tech companies that hitched up with Skolkovo also contributed to the Clinton Foundation? What a coincidence. Meanwhile, Barack Obama’s support for Russian WTO membership made the whole global flow so much easier.

        No wonder Herd Media, the Uniparty Congress and FBI Director James Comey never noticed a thing. Oh, except that Putin “hated” Hillary Clinton, “wanted to do her harm,” as Comey told Congress this week. Grrr. Maybe hypersonic technology wasn’t enough. But I’m getting ahead of the story.

        Let’s pick up with an Army report on Skolkovo written in 2012 (released in 2013) to assess “the implications … for U.S. policymakers.”

        Although military activities are not an official cluster of activity, the Skolkovo Foundation has, in fact, been involved in defense-related activities since December 2011, when it approved the first weapons-related project—the development of a hypersonic cruise missile engine. The project is a response to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Advanced Hypersonic Weapon, part of the Prompt Global Strike program.

        Fast forward to November 2016, shortly after Donald Trump was elected president when the US Air Force released a report on — no way — the Russian and Chinese hypersonic missile threat to the United States.

        The United States is vulnerable to future attack by hypersonic missiles from China and Russia and is falling behind in the technology race to develop both defensive and offensive high-speed maneuvering arms, according to a new Air Force study.

        “The People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation are already flight-testing high-speed maneuvering weapons (HSMWs) that may endanger both forward deployed U.S. forces and even the continental United States itself,” an executive summary of the report says.

        “These weapons appear to operate in regimes of speed and altitude, with maneuverability that could frustrate existing missile defense constructs and weapon capabilities.”

        In a functioning democratic republic, the executive branch decisions and procedures and corruption that led to this defense cataclysm would actually alarm security officials, lawmakers, and even arouse media curiosity, if nothing else. But Skolkovo, the money, the corruption, the treachery, the danger, inspire no reaction at all.

        Not even this plain, shocking language, from the Army, circa 2012:

        Skolkovo is an ambitious enterprise, aiming to promote technology transfer generally, by inbound direct investment, and occasionally, through selected acquisitions. As such, Skolkovo is arguably an overt alternative to clandestine industrial espionage—with the additional distinction that it can achieve such a transfer on a much larger scale and more efficiently.

        Hillary Clinton, her State Department, the Clinton Foundation, Bill Clinton did much to make Skolkovo possible — did much to activate what was, according to the Army report, “arguably” a massive “clandestine industial espionage” operation. Not that any of this is in the past. This plain-sight-“research”-cum-collusion with the Russian government goes on, and goes on unchecked — and despite the Obama administration’s supposedly hard-as-nails, cold-as-ice, tough-on-Russia finish.

        The Army report continues:

        Implicit in Russia’s development of Skolkovo is a critical question—a question that Russia may be asking itself—why bother spying on foreign companies and government laboratories if they will voluntarily hand over all the expertise Russia seeks? Since multinational institutions hire talent worldwide and seek access to foreign markets without regard for national interest, only the U.S. government would be in a position to persuade them to scale back their commitments in Skolkovo if U.S. relations with Russia continue to deteriorate.

        However, given the global dimensions of Skolkovo’s technology transfer program, it is not clear how much leverage U.S. industry has. Therefore, the key issue for U.S. policymakers is balancing the benefits of constructive technological engagement with Russia against the risks that Russia could leverage transferred scientific knowledge to modernize and strengthen its military.

        Whether that is the key issue for U.S. policymakers, circa 2017, one thing seems clear. They haven’t heard of it, and they don’t care.

        More proof that the hysteria over “Russian influence” on Donald Trump has nothing whatsoever to do with official Washington’s (read: the Swamp) concern about the national security of the American people. They are concerned about protecting the Swamp they live in and profit from, and that is all.”

      • I cannot think of anyone in US history more damaging to US national security than Bill and Hillary Clinton.

        Its the same story with both…selling or trading anything they can for whatever cash they can grab.

        After what they did in the 90s, Chinese money laundering, selling missile tech to Chinan etc., I never thought they would show their faces publicly again when Bill left office.

        But that greedy bitch could grab cash fast enough, and it didn’t help that establishment Republicans like Bush helped him rehabilitate his image.

        And for what? So both of those evil fucks could continue selling anything not nailed down without regard to the damage it caused, or the people they hurt?

        While so many on the left just ignored all of the damage they caused to the country.

      • 91Veteran,

        You stated “If it were a relay node, I wonder which House members IT system was found to have a Wi-Fi device attached to it.”

        Almost certainly all of the Congress critters they worked for. Also all their staffs equipment issued through them. Including Listening Devices(Bugs), Computers, Blackberries, IPads, Iphones, laptops, …

        Most likely acting as a node which receives Wi-Fi signals and then converts them and sends them up to the Web.

        These Congress critters and their staffs were totally compromised.

      • Seymore, I just read several Daily Caller articles on this, and can conclude nothing other than several Democrat House members are/were being blackmailed.

        Hell there are some that still have them on the payroll, which means they are on the taxpayers dime.

        If you do a search on “Awan FBI smashed hard drive”, you get the Daily Caller article, and one from gatewaypundit, but no other media outlet other than blogs.

        What’s interesting is Politico had a single article on it long ago, but nothing since.

        It is just shocking how massive this scandal is, and equally shocking that the media is intentionally ignoring it.

        …and after reading several articles, wondering how many qualified veterans would have loved to have one of those jobs at half the pay.

        Just. Wow.

  103. @NiteWish – – – Veterans Equal Access Act? In my mind and actions, the Act has already passed. I’ve had some of the best grown on the Big Island of Hawaii, no seeds. Sticky trichomes all over those fruity pine smelling kolas. Uhmm We’ll see how the VA gets their greedy controlling hands on the matter. I never count my eggs until their in my basket. Poppa told me that long ago.

  104. Manchester VAMC Update:

    As the facts about the care received by Veterans at the Manchester NH VAMC continue to dribble out via press releases and Doctors being interviewed. It is interesting to note that the main complaint from the Doctors who are claiming to be whistle blowers that have been interviewed is that Veterans are now being seen by outside doctor via the Veterans Choice program.

    Another set of very interesting facts that are now seeing the light of day via the four Doctors interviewed at the law offices of Amodeo-Vickery by Dave Solomon of the New Hampshire Union Leader.

    1. The doctors are now publicly stating their prime motivation to become, self-proclaimed, whistle blowers are to protect themselves from becoming scapegoats in Malpractice Lawsuits.

    2. The law firm began representing Dr. William Kois, head of the spinal cord clinic at the Manchester VA Medical Center in the spring of 2016. All of the other, so-called, doctors and nurse practitioners who are now also involved with the so-called whistle blower complaint are also now represented by the same attorney.

    3. At least 96 other Veterans are suffering from consequences of spinal disorders that could have been mitigated by some sort of earlier treatment or intervention while they were patients of the self-proclaimed whistle blowers.

    In the Boston Globe article that broke the news about the third world care Veterans being treated for Myelopathy at the Manchester VAMC were receiving. They provide a link to an email received by Dr. Kois sent to his private Gmail account way back on May 6th, 2014. The email is from dr. Chima Ohaegbulam which contained the following.

    “It is sad to see 21st century patients in the US progressing to wheelchair dependence for cervical myelopathy, when this could be treated. This has been a treatable cause of gain disorder or several decades. Only in 3rd world countries is it common to see patients end up as disabled from myelopathy as the ones wo have been showing up after referral from you. I see such patients on visits to Nigeria, and really only see them in Boston when they show up from the VA!”

    “Only in 3rd World countries is it common to see patients end up as disabled from myelopathy as the ones who have been showing up after referral from you,” wrote Dr. Chima Ohaegbulam , of New England Baptist Hospital, to a doctor at the Manchester VA in 2014.

    “https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3895006-VA-5.html”

    At least one Veteran who received the criminally negligent care has filed an action with the VA. Statements from his attorney who was interviewed for the Boston Globe article are and I quote from the article:

    “They showed that the retired telephone cable splicer had undergone two surgeries at the VA hospital in Jamaica Plain to remove a tumor from his spine in 1995 but that the surgeon could not remove all of it, according to a copy of the records that his family shared with the Globe.

    Over the next 21 years, McWhinnie went to the Manchester VA dozens of times for treatment of a variety of ailments. But no one had done imaging to find out if the tumor was growing again, even though regular monitoring was the standard of care after surgery on this type of tumor, according to his lawyer, Mark Abramson.

    At a four-star veterans’ hospital: Care gets ‘worse and worse’
    By Jonathan Saltzman and Andrea Estes, Globe Staff

    • To add to James Clements list of fixes for the VA:

      If any VA hospital had a malpractice claim against them, even if not yet adjudicated in court, that hospitals entire awards budget for that year will be immediately transferred to a veterans malpractice compensation account.

      If the malpractice claim is proven true, the awards budget for that VISN is also transferred to that fund.

      If any hospital has more than one malpractice claim filed in a year, both the hospital and VISN awards budgets are immediately transferred to the fund.

      Perhaps that might get some attention and accountability. I see nothing else working when nobody gives a shit because the taxpayers are on the hook.

      The worthless hacks in the facility should be the ones on the hook, and if there is not enough funding in the account to pay malpractice claims, then VAHQ awards budgets are added to it, with any remaining amount needed taken from the awards budgets from the remaining hospitals.

      I’m tired of hearing of veterans being maimed and killed by these butchers, and I see no reason why the rest of the employees shouldn’t be feeling the pain of the quacks in their midst that they ignore and tolerate.

      They claim they are professionals medical providers, yet they tolerate this because they are not affected by the malpractice.

      Its time they all are affected.

    • Thanks, I believe this is happening everyday at the VA. I obtained a copy of my medical records and after 6 year’s of having a brain scan showing abnormal and stated request follow up for possible cancer.

      VA never contacted me With the findings. When I was in the ptsd program, they had a neurological person, come and talk to us about traumatic brain injury.

      I showed copies of the report to this person and she, took action and I had to have scans every 6 month’s.

      The scans showed an old traumatic brain injury and stated we are unable to rule out cancer.

      Even with this evidence the Vba denied my claim for tbi.

      It’s to expensive and to much work for employees to follow up.

      I had teeth removed and asked the VA dentist what r u going to do about the holes left, answer ” nothing it to expensive and to much work. !

      They know that if you do not do anything the teeth will shift and cause more problems.

  105. Yesterday, a neighbor of mine said this very striking thing about Sen. John McCain: “I have lived out in the State of Arizona right through the Housing/Financial Crisis before moving back here in Central Ohio. Before the Housing Crisis, I recall in Arizona local news there were Veterans already suffering from upside down housing loan mortgages AND medical woes going-on at the Phoenix VAMC…Veterans have been crying to McCain for YEARS ON DEAF EARS and the ONLY TIME McCain will ONLY ACT LIKE HE CARES….reelection season of congress critters….but nothing was ever done and many Vets believe McCain is so self-serving that he could give a rats-ass about Veterans suffering in HIS STATE alone, let alone across the USA. I gave McCain a pass back in aftermath of Vietnam War but that quickly waned when he even turned on his own, along with John Kerry. McCain is about as much of a hero as Bernie Madoff…not…he’s just another privileged Veteran-turned Congressman and as long as HE GETS HIS, nobody else matters. Both me and my late husband, a Vietnam Veteran, believe the Phoenix VAMC Wait Time Scandal had a huge helping hand with McCain blind at the helm in his own State. However, I bet the VA names a bunch of shit after McCain.”

    Holy Crap! She had a lot more to say about him that I had already read about and learned more about on this site. However, she agreed it’s a travesty McCain turns blind eyes to the plight of his fellow Vets even with his life’s demise at the horizon.
    She did not mince words. She has voted on all sides of aisle as well.

      Sounds like your neighbor is finally waking up! Also, sounds like she needs additional info to complete the process! Keep at it, brother. It really doesn’t take much to awaken someone with a brain, as long as they’re willing to listen! Remember:

      “Truth is the new hate speech!”

      • @Crazy elf- Not exactly. She still thinks that the VA only wants the very best for we Veterans. Starting to think she has a solid two different personalities. Perhaps bipolar in every sense. Not sure. As stable as a swing-set atop a soon-to-be Florida sinkhole. 🙂
        I tend to give her a lot of leeway as that was her second husband she had to bury in this life and the most recent one was a Vietnam Veteran. Cannot be easy terms to live with.

    • 3 Checks from the Gov’t he gets… VA, Senate & Social Security, while dear Lily has to worry about loosing VA disability. Even though he earned this money it is still Gaming the system to get ahead of the herd.

  107. every one need’s to know about this law
    Innocent Man Sentenced to Prison for Standing on a Sidewalk, Informing People of Their Rights
    “http://anationbeguiled.com/?p=14388”

    For those who don’t know, jury nullification is the right for any juror to not only judge the facts of the case but also to judge the validity of the law itself. If a jury feels that a defendant is facing an unjust charge, they have the right to rule in the defendant’s favor, even if they are technically guilty under the court’s standards.

    Federal and individual state governments are terrified about this concept becoming mainstream as it could lead to radical change in regards to victimless ‘crimes.’

    Wood wanted people to know about their rights on a jury so he printed out pamphlets from the Fully Informed Jury Association and began passing them out at his local courthouse.

    By the time he could hand out 50 fliers, court officials had Wood arrested. Wood was on a public sidewalk, which should have given him additional protection under free speech laws, but he was arrested anyway.

    Wood was charged with a five-year felony for obstructing justice and a one-year misdemeanor for jury tampering. This week in court, Wood was found guilty on the obstruction of justice charge and sentenced to eight weekends in jail plus six months of probation and additional fines.

    When asked if he felt that his first amendment rights were violated, Wood responded, “Oh, I don’t feel like I have them.”………

    • I fully support jury nullification as the final tool for the citizenry to shield one another from an unjust and morally corrupt government. Ironically it was the first Chief Justice of the supreme court John Jay that affirmed a juries rights to judge the law as well as the crime. It is however a two edged sword.

      If I recall correctly it was introduced after a jury refused to convict William Penn of preaching against the church or something similar. The magistrate (I believe) ordered the jury sequestered without food or water until they came back with a guilty verdict, which they refused to do.

      Jury nullifcation has also been used to great detrimental effect before and during the civil rights movement when all white juries would refuse to convict a white defendant(s) in crimes against African-Americans.

      Now ostensibly the reason Judges don’t want jurors to know about this right, and this is only my opinion, is because of the fact that JN is indeed a two edged sword. I suspect the real reason is because it fucks up their nice streamlined railroad where they give the appearance of a defendant having “rights” but the outcome is pretty much already preordained.

      Personally I’d like to see more JN in cannabis related cases. It is the surest way I can think of to end prohibition. If the government brings charges and time and time again jurors refuse to convict then the government stops bringing charges because it’s not cost effective anymore.

      and don’t even get me started on civil asset forfeiture…

One of the reasons listed as why it was denied, was that in the unqualified shrinks opinion, that since I was on probation in El Paso TX for burglary related charges, although never charged with burglary, that I must be lying about having a TBI.

        Listen up carefully here…………….Not only have I never been involved in a burglary, or on probation for anything ever…………………….keep reading………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….I HAVE NEVER STEPPED FOOT IN FUCKING EL PASO TX IN MY ENTIRE FUCKING LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • These employees are plain crazy, talk themselves into believing what they are doing is the right thing for veterans !

        People with traumatic brain injury have more common sense. Write a letter to Shulkin and let him know what they are doing.

        I was reading about the VA in southern colorado, they are worse than Phoenix !

        My local clinic was the worse of the worse and the manager is a phoney, she don’t know her butt, from a hole in the ground.

        She’s the type of person, who can not go outside when it’s raining, she would drown from having her nose up in the air.

        Most of the clinics are failing, as I said before vamc fort Lyon was closed because of people like her.

        Many people retired, but many more are working these clinic’s and they went to hell !

        Denver, is no better and made excuses about the poor management. The director and chief of staff will and does cover up for wrongdoings and will let the veterans pay the price.

        Last place ! We veterans that have a traumatic brain injury could do a better job. !

        Keep fighting. !

        Carma is a bitch and they will get theirs and I hope soon, save a veteran’s life, fire a VA employee. !!!!!!!

      • @cj – – – Hey, I wanted to let you know that I read you post. I’m concerned about you CJ. I know your super pissed, so please calm down a bit, no foolish actions to validate their stupid, uncompassionate, and damn fucking lying asses. Thinking about you Bro. Any word on Ex?

      • Hey cj,

        Sounds like they have you crossed up with somebody else. We know they get shit wrong in files all the time. What you might want to look into doing, and I have no way of knowing if it will work, is contacting the arresting agency and see about obtaining a mugshot of “alleged” criminal or any paperwork at all also, have a background check done on you statewide in Texas. When you get the letter that says you have no criminal background in the state of Texas you then have proof you can submit. Hope it helps and hope all is well.

    • I’m working on it also. Much further along. Time to file in court, after giving the VA an extra 6 months with a reconsideration request begins on August 29, 2017 as the first date I can file in the U S District Court.

      C J, I’m going to see if I can post my paperwork done so far on Adobe Cloud. If you have access to Adobe DC, probably at your local library, I’ll find out how to share it and post a link.

      I’m happy with the progress so far. Found the cerebral malaria study researchers and a text book writer on TBI and cerebral malaria that had worked for the VA but testified on behalf of veterans at the Subcommittee on Benefits, House Committee on Veterans Affairs , on July 16, 1998. He is still alive and researching and writing on the subjects.

      • Lem, I know you will win your case, these assholes use crystal balls, ouija boards, magic 8 balls, and Devinning rods to determine SC Claims. Just like all the assholes in DC, FACTS, do not matter. Until you drag their sorry asses in front of a judge…..

  109. Why can’t we all get together and file a class action suit against these bastards? Time is running out for some. Does anyone have any information on why we can all join to file a suit? This is way more than too much.

    • If you have a TBI or had malaria which cause a temperature over 104.0 degrees with severe cramps and a severe head ache you can fill out an SF-95 and join my case in Wyoming. It will then become a class action and the judge will appoint a lawyer. My high school classmate has recommended an attorney that he had worked with on a few cases.

      After we file a complaint to the U S District Court of Wyoming (September 29, 2017) with those of you having to wait on your SF-95 investigation for 6 months after filing being joined later. I have a VA General Counsel case no. which I can give you to put on your SF-95 which will get them before the same VA attorney.

      Other conditions will have to be done separately but I have evidence of deception that can be used to break the statute of limitations and give weight to your claims of evidence denial and obstruction.

      for assistance with the SF-95 contact me at “[email protected]

      TITLE 28, U.S.C.
      §2401. Time for commencing action against United States
      (a) Except as provided by chapter 71 of title 41, every civil action commenced against the United States shall be barred unless the complaint is filed within six years after the right of action first
      accrues. The action of any person under legal disability or beyond the seas at the time the claim accrues may be commenced within three years after the disability ceases.

      TITLE 41, Section §7101
      (9) MISREPRESENTATION OF FACT. The term “misrepresentation of fact” means a false statement of substantive fact, or conduct that leads to a belief of a substantive fact material to proper understanding of the matter in hand, made with intent to deceive or mislead.

  110. Today, on “The Herman Caine Show”, the “topic of discussion” was the “Veterans Administration”!
    For 2 hours many “callers” told about the horrendous acts committed by the VA. Mr Caine said the VA was a “single payer insurance healthcare”! Many of the callers agreed.
    If y’all can find it, listen to it!

    • The VA is more than a “single payer.” The Choice program is “single payer.” VA facilities are “socialized medicine” similar to England’s health care system.

      HMOs are “buy in” socialized medicine and work as well.

      What the VA is attempting to do is upgrade to an “Accountable Care Organization” but the effort has been sabotaged (Phoenix and Cheyenne) in an effort to privatize and sell out to big insurance putting the insurance companies’ hands deeper into the health care consumers’ pockets. As was their entire hands on Obama Care after Senator Daschle took it away from Dr. David M. Cutler on President Obama’s election. Big sell out to the insurance companies. They wrote the bill instead of President Obama sticking to the plan he ran on. Single Payer, Accountable Care Organizations. Buying health instead of pay some surgeon for back surgery you would be better off without. Or, if you are female, a hysterectomy you don’t need and would be better off without. Buying health means paying the health care provider to keep you alive longer and enjoying a better quality of life until you die.

  111. First off, if you call yourself a journalist, writer, whatever, learn how to spell and use proper grammar.

    Second, the Phoenix VA doesn’t do that kind of brain surgery, genius.

    Third, if you’d quit writing stupid-ass conspiracy stories and actually do some research, you wouldn’t have wasted your time on this horseshit. Good grief.

    • Ok, what’s ur job, what VA do u work for.?

      Why don’t u tell all of us, all about the VA. !

      Come on, tell us about all the great thing’s the VA has done !

      When you done end it with ” I’m lieing”

  112. Please have someone proofread and spell check your work before you post it. When you use feet instead of feat, and weilded unparralleled instead of wielded unparalleled, and despirately instead of desperately – it takes away from the legitimacy of what you’re saying. And I completely agree with what you’re saying. Just run the article through MS Word, it caught all the mistakes I mentioned above. Great article and I hope John McCain’s brain actually explodes all over his fat daughter and she eats it and turns into a balding loudmouth pain in the ass zombie and gets murdered Cindy with a shovel to the dome.

  114. What a piece of crap can’t even pass a health bill. What a leader tells people how great their health care is and uses a different one, media played up the bullshit on how great this guy is he is nothing but a turn-coat I would repent before you enter into eternity every thing that happens in this life is just a precursor for the next unfortunately I do not think repentance is on the list of things John McCain has planed good luck anyway.
