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.


Carrier shutdown averted, Trump saves American jobs

December 1, 2016

A major reason Trump’s campaign message resonated so strongly

As he campaigned for president, Donald Trump spoke about American companies that were planning on closing their U.S. based facilities and moving to Mexico. Air-conditioning manufacturer Carrier Corp. was one of the companies Trump called out by name.  With its intended relocation 1,400 jobs at its Indianapolis-based manufacturing facility would have been lost. Think of that as 1,400 families wondering how they would keep a roof over their heads and food on the table.

With his Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration still weeks away, president-elect Donald Trump has already secured an early victory as he and Vice President-elect Mike Pence directly intervened calling Gregory Hayes the CEO of United Technologies Corporation, Carrier’s parent company, persuading the manufacturer to remain in Indiana.

Under terms of the agreement, Carrier will receive tax incentives from the state economic development corporation to keep the jobs in the state.

Watch this video to see why Donald Trump’s election was not a shock to those who pay attention to what’s actually going on in this country. When a company official told longtime employees, “I want to be clear. This is strictly a business decision,” it moved lifelong Democrats to vote for the man who promised to keep American jobs in America. Carrier workers in Indiana are paid approximately $20 an hour as compared to Mexican workers who would have earned $3. During the announcement, the company rep repeatedly told the disgusted employees to quiet down.

United Technologies Corporation (UTX) took a nosedive on the heels of its announced move to Mexico and is still trying to rebound.

Other companies Trump mentioned during the campaign that were poised to head south are Ford Motor Co. and Nabisco, maker of all-America cookie favorite Oreo.


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.


Hillary Clinton should be indicted, not elected

November 3, 2016

What will it take for the Arizona Republic to withdraw its endorsement?

With less than a week before Election Day, Hillary Clinton’s scandals have grown at breakneck speed. Extending past the private mail server located in her basement which compromised national security and the money-making machine and pay for play scheme, selling access to then-Secretary of State Clinton —  inextricably entangled with the Clinton Foundation. We’ve read with disgust how Democrat strategist and interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile acknowledged in a now disclosed email to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, “From time to time I get the (townhall/debate) questions in advance.” Guess who she passes them along to? 

As the walls began closing in, Hillary Clinton’s closest aides and advisers were given immunity.

National Review’s Andrew C. McCarthy writes, “The Clinton E-mails Are Critical to the Clinton Foundation influence peddling Investigation.”

All of this deceit leads to at the highest levels. The latest disclosures involve recordings detailing that FBI agents felt they had sufficient evidence to pursue an indictment of Hillary Clinton, but were shut down by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice. 

Yes, the same Loretta Lynch who had a private jet-board meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport — ostensibly to discuss Bill’s golf game and grandchildren — as Hillary’s mounting legal problems were worsening. Despite reaching political heights, the self identified po’ boy from Hope, Arkansas still function as a power obsessed hick.

Even Barack Obama is weighing in on the FBI‘s investigation, as he watches his ‘third term’ drop like a rock, declaring, “We don’t operate on innuendo, incomplete information or leaks.” Democrats Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, great fans of the FBI Director just last month, are now piling on James Comey for reopening the investigation. The FBI Director’s term is ten years long for a reason.

Bypassing mere politics by a mile, with raw criminality front and center, the likelihood of a Clinton indictment is worth betting on.


2016 Election rigged? Of course it’s rigged

October 19, 2016

Donald Trump’s allegation is right on target

For most Americans, questioning the integrity of elections has not qualified as a front burner issue. We believed in the righteousness of the process. Whether or not the winner was our choice, we dutifully accepted the results of what we have long considered an unquestionably equitable system.

But like a brick with a threatening note hurled through the window, we have been shocked from our complacency. Though we have every right to expect neutrality from the press, it’s not news that the media lean left, which affects reporting.

Now WikiLeaks reveals how deeply embedded reporters are in the 2016 presidential election, even funneling questions to Hillary Clinton via DNC Chair Donna Brazile in advance of a televised debate. A new data dump, reported by Zero Hedge, including thousands of Podesta email exchanges underscores the deceit. Lobbyist John Podesta is the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. He was previously Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton and advisor to Barack Obama. His organization Center for American Progress is funded to the tune of $ millions by anti-American George Soros.

Deception has permeated the highest levels. This morning’s Daily Caller reports that according White House records, Robert Creamer, a key operative in a Democrat scheme to send agitators to create chaotic disruptions at Donald Trump’s rallies has visited the White House 342 times since 2009.

The Center for Public Integrity has illuminated the collusion of the press with the Clinton campaign, in an article titled,Journalists shower Hillary Clinton with campaign cash.”

Those identified as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism were identified in federal campaign finance filings as having donated nearly $400,000 — of which more than 96 percent has benefited Clinton.

Evidence of dead and ineligible voters on voter rolls is highlighted by former DOJ voting rights section attorney J. Christian Adams on Fox and Friends. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, says dead voters typically vote as Democrats.

The elections director in Indiana, the home state of Gov. Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s VP running mate, says she has found thousands of incidents of altered voter registrations which she characterized as potential “voter fraud.”

Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has video evidence of a liberal deputy political director of a left-wing group boldly admitting to engaging in grand scale voter fraud.

In 2012, we posted another Project Veritas video revealing shocking conversations with election officials in Minneapolis, Minnesota. When questioned by the undercover videographers whether they were acting within the law by requesting numerous registration forms without any IDs, the election department workers said, “We’re not the police.”

Those are the same words used by Maricopa County Recorder and inferred by Arizona Secretary of State referencing their intentions not to enforce the state’s new law prohibiting ballot harvesting.

The integrity of election is no longer a given. After eight years of Obama and the prospect of Hillary leading his third term, Republicans have much to be concerned about.

 


Spare us Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Celebrate Columbus today

October 12, 2016

Christopher Columbus who was heralded for “sailing the ocean blue in 1492” is the latest victim to fall to the overarching lunacy of political correctness. In fact, Christopher Columbus is now regarded as a white exploiter of Indian tribes, bringing white men’s diseases from Europe and initiating the changing of the culture of the noble nomadic tribes, living in teepees and hogans, communicating via smoke signals and drums and without written languages.

President Benjamin Harrison established the Columbus Day holiday in 1892, the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ landing in the “New World” in 1492.

Next, the District of Columbia along with the cities Columbus, Ohio, Georgia, Mississippi and Indiana, will be forced to change their names. .Americans of Italian heritage should be outraged, but even Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, whose parents were Italian immigrants, voted to go along with the program, rationalizing that Phoenix doesn’t observe Columbus Day as a paid holiday. The move won’t rename an established celebration, as other cities have done — yet.
