Phx VA hospital scandal occurred under McCain’s nose

December 10, 2016

McCain’s abysmal record with veterans includes disgraced Phoenix VA Health Care system

U.S. Senate elections occur only once every six years — long enough intervals for the vast majority of voters to forget pertinent facts about candidates. This political disconnect works in the candidate’s behalf. As Jeff Flake noted, “The beauty of six-year senate terms is that voters have short memories.” With a ballot full of mostly unfamiliar names and intended to confuse ballot measures that urge yes votes when no would be the better option, and vice versa, it’s a difficult time for busy voters who want to stay engaged, but have scant information. That fact alone accounts for the barrage of mailers and media ads, many purposely intended to deceive.

This bit of background brings us to John McCain, routinely portrayed as the veteran’s best friend. During the Vietnam War, he was held as a POW, returning to the U.S. in 1973. But facts can be pesky things, though this Fact Check is from his 2008 failed presidential campaign, it remains relevant.

During his 2016 senate reelection, we were once again barraged with the octogenarian’s Friend of the Veteran refrain. But the stark headline — “Phoenix VA earns worst ranking” — in Thursday’s edition of the Arizona Republic newspaper tells a different story. McCain is unnamed but undeniably integral to the report. The massive levels of neglect and fraud as patient records were altered to hide their excessive wait times for medical care occurred on McCain’s watch in his own hometown.

The scandal-plagued Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center is about 4 miles from McCain’s 7,000 sq. ft. penthouse condo. For a blowhard like John McCain, that’s spitting distance from his balcony. The newspaper account of the Phoenix VA Health Care System details the abuses. As a reminder, news first broke about the miserable conditions resulting in over 200 veterans dying due to extreme wait times for medical appointments over two years ago. Lab results were “lost.” The facility misrepresented results from patient satisfaction surveys and continued to give incentive bonuses to colluding employees. The truth is the Phoenix VA Health Care system is rated lowest in the nation.

This shocking Oct. 4, 2016 VA Inspector General’s Office Review on Alleged Consult Mismanagement at the Phoenix VA Health Care System found that 215 deceased patients had open specialist consultation appointments at the Phoenix facility on the day they died.

The self-proclaimed veteran’s pal, John McCain has never ventured onto the hospital complex demanding answers from administrators. 


Obama claims his intelligence let him down on rise of ISIS

December 9, 2016

Attempting to shift blame, Obama refuses to accept responsibility for increased terrorism on his watch — or even say the words “radical Islamic terrorism”

On his way out the door Barack Obama, in this CNN interview, claims the ability of ISIS (which he steadfastly refers to as ISIL) to spread took him by surprise. It was not on my “intelligence radar screen.”

Clearly this video shows that not to be the case. Obama’s own intelligence officials were telling Congress of their terror concerns. The date each of them testified follows their name and position.

James Clapper, Director of National Security – Jan. 29, 2014

John Brennan, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency – Feb. 4, 2014

Brett McGurk, State Department Presidential Envoy for ISIL Coalition – Feb. 5, 2014

Lt. General (Ret.) Michael Flynn, former Defense Intelligence Agency Director – Feb. 11, 2014

Each knowledgeable official, testifying before Congress, tells a decidedly different story from the one attempting to be sold by President Barack Hussein Obama.

Exhibiting his deep disconnect, Obama previously compared groups linked to al-Qaeda as “JV Team“ (Junior Varsity). Brief video under link.

The latest mantra sung by the Democrats is “fake news.”  This Obama tweet is evidence of his disconnect with reality as he peddles his own fakery, while disregarding the multitude of terrorist acts perpetrated on our soil.


Ex-Gov. Napolitano: The despotic creature that never went away

December 3, 2016

The nightmare continues

Some childhood stories are so ghastly, looking back we wonder how we survived them. As an example, Hansel and Gretel were led deep into the forest with only a loaf of bread by their widowed father and his new wife, who didn’t take too kindly to children. Hungry, frightened and tired, the brother and sister came to a house made of gingerbread and they began to feast. The old witch who resided within used the house as a lure for satisfying her appetite for tasty kids. As she was about to toss them into her oven, they turned the tables on her, and left her to roast as they followed the breadcrumbs they had purposely dropped and made their way home to their newly single father.  Gruesome? Indeed. The Brothers Grimm were masters of such fables.

This tale of horror is offered for a reason. There is no wicked stepmother in the following story — rather a fanatical and unwilling to enforce the law ogre in ongoing authoritative positions who anoints illegals as having greater needs than our own citizens.

The state of Arizona was once ruled by a rough voiced tyrant named Napolitano who refused to protect the people from hordes of illegal invaders flooding into the state from an impoverished and crime- ridden foreign country directly to the south. When the citizens of Arizona pleaded with the Napolitano to protect them from the influx of crime and violent drug cartels, along with the astronomical costs of the limitless benefits they had to provide the invaders, the Napolitano roared, “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder,” all too clearly illustrating her lack of commitment to constructing a security wall along the southern border to stem the spiraling criminality.

The Napolitano, a coarse and boorish species known as Democratia Erectus, caught the eye of an even greater power known as the Obama. He whisked the Napolitano out of Arizona and spirited it away to Washington D.C. where he put the Napolitano in charge of doing the same nothingness, only on a grander scale as Secretary of Homeland Security, though not following the plans of her predecessor former judge Michael Chertoff, who eventually concluded militarizing the border was a viable option.

Finally in Sept. 2013 the Napolitano heard the enticing call of Academia far across the great land. The Napolitano’s latest gig is University of California President, which paid a base salary of $570,000, and covered a monthly $10,000 lease of a mansion, and $9,000 yearly for car expense.  And the latest edict?

“Campus police officers will not contact, detain, question or arrest any individual solely on the basis of immigration status.” The Napolitano has announced that system leaders will protect and defend the estimated 2,500 illegal students enrolled across the 10-campus UC system. in the country illegally — and will instruct campus police to do the same —- in effect creating sanctuary campuses. This action is in response to the election of Donald Trump, who has vowed a meaningful response to the hordes breaching our porous border. The UC press release  can be read here.

We are supposed to be concerned that they face legal and financial obstacles to completing their education as our American citizen children are now forced to compete for college placement and later, jobs, taken by those who do not belong here. Yet within the first month  of taking office, Napolitano formed a student advisory council on aiding illegals and committed $5 million to assist UC campuses provide them targeted financial aid and services.

This outrageous action come directly from the same Napolitano previously charged with protecting the nation’s borders.

We knew the Napolitano was a cataclysm when it roamed Arizona. In the intervening years, nothing has changed but its increasingly brassy disregard for Americans.


Religion of Peace update — more terror Nov. 28, 2016

November 29, 2016

Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an Ohio State University freshman drove his vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians at the school, then jumped out and stabbed numerous people with a butcher knife, before police officer Alan Horujko, rightly hailed as a hero, shot and killed the attacker on Monday. At least 11 victims were transported to hospitals.

PJ Media reports that in a new publication, ISIS has called for random knife attacks in “alleys, forests, beaches, and quiet neighborhoods. ” Also on the hit-list are kids engaged in sports.

Artan, 18, was a Somali refugee. He was a legal U.S. permanent resident. The city of Columbus where the campus attack took place has a large Somali population, the second largest in the United States.

ABC News reveals Artan’s Facebook rant that was posted just minutes before his bloody rampage began.

Ohio Governor John Kasich released a statement that state residents’ “thoughts and prayers go out to the Ohio State community.” The “thoughts a prayers” message is heard so often under these circumstances, the words are beginning to ring hallow.  What  Kasich, and every other governor should do is join together 50 strong to implore the federal government to impose stiffer immigration standards and shut down the influx of unable-to-be-vetted “refugees.” The feds are not doing their job to fulfill these key words in the Preamble to the United States Constitution: “….. establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity….

Although the Somali Student Association has a prominent presence on campus, (check out the audience in the opening frames of video link) Artan, now being referred to as a terror suspect, was offended over what he regarded as too few prayer rooms to accommodate Muslim students.

On the White House website we are treated to Barack Obama’s condolences (in both English and Spanish) on the death of Cuba’s brutal Communist dictator Fidel Castro. He also lets us know he has pardoned the national turkey, There is not, however, a single word referencing this latest terrorist attack on American soil.  He didn’t even say that if he had a son, he would look like Abdul — as he did with Trayvon MartinHe’ll probably get around to it when he returns from the golf course.


AZ Republic choking on its commitment to liberalism

November 26, 2016

Fishy_Arizona_Republic

There comes a point when it could be considered heartless not to have a modicum of pity for the Hillary-endorsing, open borders promoting Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic newspaper) despite having brought its calamity  on itself. The already dwindling subscriptions dipped even lower when irate subscribers cancelled after the endorsement of the scandal-plagued Hillary.

Even with the market rallying after Donald Trump’s victory, there was nothing to rave about with parent company Gannett’s stock closing price Friday standing at $9.79. At this time last year it was steady at 17.75. Check out the historical chart on the right side of the link to see the calamitous fall coinciding with the election. In 1998 the Central Newspapers, Inc. shares (then not flying under Gannett, Inc.) were trading north of $70.00 a share.

When the Hillary Clinton endorsement was made, it was heralded as “bold move for the conservative newspaper.” Literate Arizonans know all too well the newspaper is anything but “conservative” since the death of publishers Eugene and Nina Pulliam.  Its remaining senior employees are solid lefties who march in lockstep to the radical George Soros drumbeat. The newspaper endorsed all of the recipients of his largesse, from John McCain and Hillary Clinton to Paul Penzone the incoming Maricopa County Sheriff — linked by their open border policySoros also funded the opponent to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, who was able to thwart the assault from the left. The globalist multi-billionaire financier has been giving $ millions to oust law enforcement professionals throughout the United States as he attempts to restructure the criminal justice system. This Discover the Networks page provides a guide to the Soros syndicate.

The Phoenix Republic insert often embarrassingly carries the identical articles the increasingly anorexic newspaper runs — and on the same day. While it’s true the demographic for home subscriptions is predominantly senior citizens, they are not all suffering from dementia, and actually notice the repetition, stuck in among the obviously pre-written pages and propped up by Gannett’s mainstay USAToday, the daily distributed free of charge outside hotel room doors. Often referred to as the Repugnant or the Repulsive, a more accurate name for the pathetic excuse for a local newspaper would be The Daily Regurgitation. There have been days when the news content is fewer than 25 pages, tucked in among ads for hearing aids and retirement facilities. In a futile attempt to lure younger readers, it’s focus is now on entertainment and restaurants and the Cronkite student reporters, sorely in need of mentoring cover serious events as if they were writing a whodunit novel.

Whichever the preferred name, the daily fishwrap is shrinking. An example of the skillful writing keeping readers engaged is this recent Page One headline: “Asking schools to protect ‘dreamers.’”  No word of who was asking. The first paragraph reveals the enthusiastic benefactors wanting to provide illegal alien competition for American citizen students to access higher education are professors, faculty and staff at Arizona’s state universities and community colleges. What a surprise.

The Arizona Republic would rather die insulting its few remaining readers than alter it’s left-wing stance.


Tucker Carlson eviscerates overindulged, liberal college student

November 24, 2016

This vacuous punk wants to be an American history teacher. Imagine him propagandizing students with his personal perspective that allows him to view his own parents as being able to afford his pricey education through money they garnered profiteering from slavery. Unless they’re a couple of hundred years old, it’s a difficult argument to follow. They foot the bill for their son’s private Hampshire College tuition to the tune of $62,000 a year. Here’s an example of what’s influencing his judgment.


Sheriff David Clarke perfectly describes Obama’s actions

Obama opens prison doors, allows more refugees, considers additional amnesty for illegals

Barack Obama has been on a clemency roll as he heads out the door. On Tuesday he commuted the sentences of 79 drug offenders bringing the total number of federal inmates who’ve had their sentences reduced by the soon to be exiting president to 1,023. He has now granted clemency to more inmates than the past 11 presidents combined

Feeling emboldened, Democrat U.S. Reps. Zoe Lofgren, Lucille Roybal-Allard and Jeff Flake’s radical left-wing amnesty buddy, Luis Gutierrez, who has longstanding ties to the American Communist and Socialist parties —  recently sent this letter to Barack Obama imploring him to use his pardon authority to forgive the past and future civil immigration offenses of the estimated 750,000 impossible to verify so-called “DREAMers.” These foreign nationals, many now adults with families of their own, all claim they were brought here as young children in violation of the law by their illegal parents. Obama granted them deportation deferrals under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. They are still illegally in the United States, taking university placements and jobs from American citizens. Rather than being a DREAM, this constitutes a nightmare, as conservative Human Events reveals.

Obama also plans on upping the ante on unable-to-be-vetted Syrian “refugees,” increasing their numbers in the United States by another 10,000.  

Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke gets it.  He says Obama is “like a tenant who has been evicted and will trash the place on his way out.”
