    The Secret Service of Obama’s 7000 (SES)

    Feb17, 2017 Judge Jeanine called them Obama’s “LEFTOVERS”.  And, she said what the president has to do with it is make clear that he doesn’t play around either and prosecute them.

    Feb. 15,  2017 Wikileaked, Julian Assange wrote “Amazing battle for dominance is playing out between the elected us govt & the IC who consider themselves to be the ‘PERMANENT GOVERNMENT’,”.

    I CALL THEM OBAMA’S 7000 (SES) UNTOUCHABLES.

    THERE ARE STILL 300 UNTOUCHABLES  OBAMA’S LEFTOVERS  “SES” EMPLOYEES IN THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION

    FOX NEWS FEB 21, 2017 5:45 AM: 

    I WAS SHOCKED WHEN I WATCHED PART OF A VERY BRIEF INTERVIEW WITH THE NEW SECRETARY OF THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS,  DR. DAVID J. SHULKIN.

    SHULKIN, AS A  “LEFTOVER” FROM THE OBAMA VA ADMINISTRATION,  DEFENDED THE “SES” UNFIRED, UNTOUCHABLE, BONUS COLLECTING,  EMPLOYEES IN THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION, AS  MOSTLY GOOD GUYS (PEOPLE) AND HAD VIRTUALLY NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT THE WHISTLE BLOWERS.

    INDEED, SHULKIN IS YET ANOTHER  “LEFTOVER” FROM THE OBAMA VA ADMINISTRATION

    SHULKIN CURRENTLY SERVES AS UNDER SECRETARY FOR HEALTH AT THE VA IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, A POSITION THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR RUNNING THE VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION.

    THERE ARE STILL 300 UNTOUCHABLES  “SES” EMPLOYEES IN THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION, THEY HAD THEIR (VA) SECRET SERVICE POLICY, THEY COOKED THE BOOKS, EVENTUALLY THEY WERE REPORTED BY WHISTLE BLOWERS, OVERALL THEY LET 300,000 VETERANS DIE FROM NEGLECT, THEY WERE UNTOUCHABLE,  NOT ONE OF THEM WAS  EVER FIRED OR PROSECUTED AND THEY RECEIVED BONUSES FOR DOING IT.

    A Patient Advocacy Program is in place at each VA health care facility to ensure that your concerns are addressed in a convenient and timely manner.

Each Patient Advocate is empowered to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits you are entitled to by law.
    Patient Advocates act as VA representatives to listen to any questions, problems, or special needs you may have. They will refer your concerns to the appropriate Medical Center staff for resolution and act on your behalf to assist in explaining your point of view. Patient Advocates can be reached through the nursing or support staff in any clinical area.

    • 4 days ago – January 3, 2017

    The House on Tuesday approved a measure to require the Veterans Affairs Department to permanently note reprimands in employees‘ personnel files, MAKING THE ACCOUNTABILITY MEASURE THE FIRST BILL THE CHAMBER APPROVED IN THE 115TH CONGRESS.

    Federal Employee Accountability Bill Is First Approved by House in New Congress

    • The House on Tuesday approved a measure to require the Veterans Affairs Department to permanently note reprimands in employees’ personnel files, making the accountability measure the first bill the chamber approved in the 115th Congress.
    • The Ensuring VA Accountability Act would mandate that VA keep copies of reprimands and admonishments in the employee’s permanent record for as long as they are working for the department. Currently, “admonishments” remain in employees’ records for two years and “reprimands” for three.
    • “The artificial limitations make it difficult for VA managers to properly review employee performance and obtain an accurate picture of their work history,” the Republican Policy Committee said.
    • » Get the best federal news and ideas delivered right to your inbox. Sign up here.
    • The prioritization as the first bill in the new session of Congress — following only a resolution to set the House rules for the 115th Congress — could signal VA and federal employee accountability will be a key area of focus over the next two years.
    • Congressional Republicans have fought since 2014 to make it easier to fire VA employees and restrict their bonuses, though many of their efforts were blocked by their Democratic colleagues or President Obama. President-elect Donald Trump spoke throughout his campaign of the need for VA reform and as part of his official platform promised to bring more accountability to VA senior executives.
    • “I think that’s a good sign,” Dan Caldwell, vice president of policy for Concerned Veterans for America, a conservative group that backs increased accountability measures, said of Tuesday’s vote. He added Congress would need to pursue “much deeper” reforms to “really make a difference.”
    • Previous efforts to ease the discipline of VA’s Senior Executive Service members, implemented after the 2014 Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act, stalled when the Obama administration declined to defend the provision in federal court.
    • Later in the 115th Congress’ first week, the House will consider a series of bills aimed at providing more oversight of federal agencies. The Taxpayers’ Right to Know Act would require the Office of Management and Budget to post online information related to “the cost and performance” of federal programs that exceed $1 million. The House approved the bill in 2015, but it stalled in the Senate. It will also vote on a measure that would require agencies to give all federal records requested by the Government Accountability Office to the auditing agency, and authorize GAO to bring civil actions against those who fail to comply. The House will also consider Office of Special Counsel reauthorization and a bill to bring more transparency to federal advisory committees.
    • Later in the week, the House will vote on the 2017 Midnight Rules Relief Act, which would allow Congress to nix en bloc regulations finalized by agencies within 60 legislative days of the end of a presidential term. It will also consider the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, which Republicans have pushed for years and would require congressional approval of rules and regulations that would produce an impact on the economy of more than $100 million.

    Sep 3, 2015 – Pedestrians walk past the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) headquarters in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Friday, May 10, 2013.

    AND NOT A SINGLE GOVERNMENT PUBLIC SERVANT AT THE VA WAS FIRED.

    ACCORDING TO THE APRIL 22, 2015  NEW YORK TIMESTHE ACTUAL NUMBER IS: ZERO.

    As the Times recalls, soon after the “Sixty heads rolled!” headlines were written, the Department of Veterans Affairs backpedaled and said that only 14 people had actually been removed.

    THAT WAS A LIE, TOO.

    AS SO OFTEN IN THE OBAMA YEARS, IT FELL TO A COMMITTEE OF CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS TO FLOG THE TRUTH OUT OF THE ADMINISTRATION, AND IT TOOK MONTHS OF EFFORT:

    The documents given this month to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, which provided them to The New York Times, show

    THAT THE DEPARTMENT PUNISHED A TOTAL OF EIGHT OF ITS 280,000 EMPLOYEES FOR INVOLVEMENT IN THE SCANDAL.

    One was fired, one retired in lieu of termination, one’s termination is pending, and five were reprimanded or suspended for up to two months.

    The only person fired was the director of the Phoenix hospital, Sharon Helman, who technically was removed not for her role in the manipulation of waiting lists but for receiving “inappropriate gifts,” according to the department.

    In a statement released Wednesday night, the department did not dispute the numbers released by the committee, but said that more than 100 other employees were facing disciplinary action.

    The Untouchables SES Senior Executives

    Posted on November 14, 2016 4:29 pm by Pearl Rains Hewett Comment

    THERE IS NO PLACE IN THE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S GOVERNMENT AGENDA FOR THIS BEHIND OUR BACKS, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS UNTOUCHABLE, UNFIREABLE,  7000 SES SENIOR EXECUTIVES, A CORRUPT, LAYER OF POWER AND GREED IN THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION OR ANY OTHER BRANCH OF THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT.

    WHICH IMPAIRS THE PRESIDENT’S ABILITY TO SUPERVISE THE EXECUTION OF THE FEDERAL CIVIL SERVICE LAWS

     “SECTION 707 THUS VESTS A FEDERAL EMPLOYEE WITH THE FINAL AUTHORITY —

    UNREVIEWABLE BY ANY POLITICALLY ACCOUNTABLE OFFICER OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

     to determine whether to uphold the removal of a [Department of Veterans Affairs],

    WHICH INCLUDES THE POWER TO OVERRULE THE DECISION OF A CABINET-LEVEL OFFICER,”

    SOMETHING WENT BLATANTLY AMOK IN THE US GOVERNMENT CIVIL SERVICE BETWEEN 1883-2016.

    HOW DID THE U.S. GOVERNMENT END UP  WITH 7000 (SES) UNFIREABLE UNTOUCHABLES CIVIL SERVICE EMPLOYEES CHARGED WITH LEADING THE CONTINUING TRANSFORMATION OF OUR GOVERNMENT?

    ——————————————————–

    Congress must pursue “much deeper” reforms to “really make a difference.”

    The bottom line…

    Later in the week, the House will vote on the 2017 Midnight Rules Relief Act, which would allow Congress to nix en bloc regulations finalized by agencies within 60 legislative days of the end of a presidential term.

    JAN 28, 2016 – DES MOINES, IA – If Donald Trump had any second thoughts about … stage before a raucous crowd at Drake University on Thursday night to …

    DES MOINES, IA – If Donald Trump had any second thoughts about skipping the GOP debate, he certainly didn’t show it as he took the stage before a raucous crowd at Drake University on Thursday night to say that he had raised nearly $6 million for veterans in one day.

    For several days now, the pundits have pontificated about the damage that Trump’s decision could inflict on his campaign. But, comparing his crowd and the number of cameras to the Academy Awards, Trump waved off the notion that Iowans would see him as a sore loser.

    “We love our vets,” Trump said.

    “When you’re treated badly you have to stick up for your rights,” Trump added, alluding to his relationship with Fox. “And that’s what our country has to do.”

    “We have to stick up for our country when we’re being mistreated.”

    He added that Fox had been “extremely nice,” but it was too late. In an interview with CNN just before the rally, Trump said Fox News “apologized” to him for a mocking statement the television network issued.

    Clearly enjoying his evening away from the debate, Trump also told the audience what could be a secret weapon: his daughter Ivanka, who is pregnant. “Ivanka, I said, it would be so great if you had your baby in Iowa. It would be so great — I’d definitely win!”

    Also appearing with Trump were two men who didn’t make the prime-time debate, and the two most recent winners of the Iowa Caucuses: Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee.

    ‘Donald Trump isn’t scared of anything’

    Trump supporters who waited hours in the cold to see him roundly disputed the notion that he would see any attrition in his support in Iowa, where he has led in recent polls.

    In interviews, many voters here said the controversy was yet another example of Trump bucking the establishment — a trait that has endeared them to him from the beginning — and that they were proud of him standing up to Fox News.

    Ernie Ratcliffe, an army veteran who served two tours in Vietnam, drove in from Kansas City for the rally, scoffed when asked for his thoughts on Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s contention that Trump skipped the debate because he was afraid of taunts or difficult questions from the Fox moderators or rival candidates.

    “Donald Trump isn’t scared of anything. He’s not scared of absolutely anything,” said Ratcliffe, who has signed up with his wife to call New Hampshire voters on Trump’s behalf next week. “Donald J. Trump said he was going to do this and he’s done it. He’s a man of his word.”

    Ratcliffe said he was convinced that Trump was the only candidate who could clean up the Department of Veterans Affairs and that it would be “one of the first things he does when he gets into office.”

    “He’s going to get it squared away,” Ratlcliffe said. “It’s not going to take him very long to do it. He’s going to put the right people in. He knows how to manage things. He’s a very successful businessman. He’s going to get it done very quickly and very, very well.”

    Randal Thom, a former Marine who was among the first admitted to Trump’s event, said he loved it that Trump refused to back down.

    “When it came out yesterday that he was actually doing this (rally) in less than 24 hours, it was amazing,” Thom said. “It just shows he has the ability to rally and get things done.”

    Thom, who raises Alaskan Malamute and Pomalute puppies in Minnesota, and plans to spend Monday in Iowa volunteering for Trump, dismissed Cruz as “a Canadian born citizen” and described the Texas senator, as well as the other GOP contenders as “weak.”

    “Trump is a 100% strongman. He’s bullet proof,” Thom said. “People say, ‘Oh look at his background. Look at the number of wives he’s had.’ You know what? I don’t care about that. What I care about is his future.”

    The details of exactly how Trump plans to parcel out money to veterans groups as a result of the event remained unclear on Monday night. But said he gave $1 million to veterans.

    Inside the auditorium where Trump spoke, the campaign reserved special seating for veterans, many of them disabled, and Trump recognized them as he took the stage.

    AN IMAGE OF AN ELEPHANT WAS FEATURED AS A REPUBLICAN SYMBOL IN AT LEAST ONE POLITICAL CARTOON AND A NEWSPAPER ILLUSTRATION DURING THE CIVIL WAR

    POLITICAL CARTOONS? MANY A REAL TRUTH IS SPOKEN IN JEST.

    Old silly me, I thought the republican symbol of the elephant was  created by the genius of the GOP.

    THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS FORMED IN 1854

    TWENTY YEARS LATER 1874  THE ELEPHANT WAS STILL A GOP POLITICAL CARTOON

    IN AN 1874 HARPER’S WEEKLY CARTOON. an elephant labeled “THE REPUBLICAN VOTE,” which was shown standing at the edge of a pit, Thomas Nast who’s considered the father of the modern political cartoon employed the elephant to represent Republicans in additional cartoons during the 1870s, and by 1880 other cartoonists were using the creature to symbolize the party. 

    An 1879 cartoon (pictured) showed a politician grabbing a donkey LABELED “DEMOCRATIC PARTY” by the tail to keep it from falling into a pit of “financial chaos.”

    And in fact THE UNCLE SAM AMERICAN’S KNOW, STARTED AS A POLITICAL CARTOON BY Thomas Nast

    History

    Jul 7, 2015 –   THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S ELEPHANT and THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S DONKEY have been on the political scene since the 19th century. The origins of the DEMOCRATIC DONKEY can be traced to the 1828 presidential campaign of Andrew Jackson. DURING THAT RACE, OPPONENTS OF JACKSON CALLED HIM A JACKASS.

    NOT ELECTING THE NEXT PRESIDENT

    Why Nast chose the donkey and the elephant is a pretty complicated story.

    Although Nast’s original interpretation used the donkey to stand in for a Democrat-leaning newspaper scaring away Republican voters,

    his cartoon showing a duplicitous donkey attacking a weak-minded elephant,

    became a handy symbol for other cartoonists wanting to represent Democrats attacking Republicans.

    Popular recognition of the image overrode the party’s own wishes

    Over time, Republicans came to view the elephant emblem as a sign of strength and intelligence, while their opponents portrayed it as a timid and clumsy behemoth. Democrats seized the “jackass” label, and transformed it into a clever and courageous donkey.

    AS IS STILL TRUE TODAY, IT’S ALL IN THE SPIN!

    Elephant Graveyard. The existence of a mass graveyard to which elephants go to die remains a myth. IT IS THOUGHT TO BE THE RETREAT OF OLD AND DYING ELEPHANTS, SO THAT THEY DIE AWAY FROM THE HERD, NOT HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THOSE THAT REMAIN BEHIND.

    An elephants’ graveyard is a place where, according to legend, OLDER ELEPHANTS INSTINCTIVELY DIRECT THEMSELVES WHEN THEY REACH A CERTAIN AGE. THEY THEN DIE THERE ALONE, FAR FROM THE GROUP.

    AWAY FROM THE HERD, NOT HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THOSE THAT REMAIN BEHIND.

    Is  Google answer, a coincidence of political symbolic importance, a myth  a legend or an oxymoron? All of the above?

    LIKE AN ELEPHANT,  AS AN REPUBLICAN

    AS A REPUBLICAN, LIKE AN ELEPHANT

    Hmmm…. perhaps I should add?

    Metaphor, figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.

    And,  mixed metaphor,a combination of two or more incompatible metaphors, which produces a ridiculous effect

    With documented  facts about the Republican (GOP) thrown in

  • Arlington Cemetery Memorial Day May 30, 2016

    Arlington Cemetery Memorial Day May 30, 2016 (President Obama made a speech)

    HISTORY? Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

    SINCE 1868, ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY HAS BEEN THE FOCAL POINT OF NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY COMMEMORATIONS.

    ARLINGTON IS THE ONLY NATIONAL CEMETERY TO HOLD SERVICEMEN FROM EVERY WAR IN U.S. HISTORY.

    ALTHOUGH THE FIRST MILITARY BURIAL AT ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY DIDN’T OCCUR UNTIL 1864,

    THE BURIAL GROUND HOLDS THE REMAINS OF THOSE WHO FOUGHT IN EVERY WAR SINCE THE REVOLUTION. IN 1892, SOLDIERS KILLED IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR WERE REINTERRED FROM A GEORGETOWN CEMETERY, AND CASUALTIES FROM THE WAR OF 1812 HAVE BEEN REBURIED AT ARLINGTON AS WELL.

    ON EVERY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND SINCE 1948, TROOPS IN THE 3RD U.S. INFANTRY REGIMENT—THE ARMY’S OFFICIAL CEREMONIAL UNIT KNOWN AS THE “OLD GUARD”—HAVE PLACED SMALL AMERICAN FLAGS IN FRONT OF ALL OF ARLINGTON’S TOMBSTONES. EACH FLAG IS PLANTED PRECISELY ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF A GRAVE MARKER AND PERFECTLY CENTERED.

    Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) On military personnel

    Military personnel subject to combat in war often suffer mental and physical injuries, including depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, disease, injury, and death.

    In every war in which American soldiers have fought in, the chances of becoming a psychiatric casualty – of being debilitated for some period of time as a consequence of the stresses of military life – were greater than the chances of being killed by enemy fire.

    — No More Heroes, Richard Gabriel[28]

    During World War II, research conducted by US Army Brigadier General S.L.A. Marshall found that, on average, only 15% to 20% of American riflemen in WWII combat fired at the enemy.[16] In Civil War Collector’s Encyclopedia, F.A. Lord notes that of the 27,574 discarded muskets found on the Gettysburg battlefield, nearly 90% were loaded, with 12,000 loaded more than once and 6,000 loaded 3 to 10 times. These studies suggest that most military personnel resist firing their weapons in combat, that – as some theorists argue – human beings have an inherent resistance to killing their fellow human beings.[16] Swank and Marchand’s WWII study found that after sixty days of continuous combat, 98% of all surviving military personnel will become psychiatric casualties. Psychiatric casualties manifest themselves in fatigue cases, confusional states, conversion hysteria, anxiety, obsessional and compulsive states, and character disorders.[16]

    One-tenth of mobilised American men were hospitalised for mental disturbances between 1942 and 1945, and after thirty-five days of uninterrupted combat, 98% of them manifested psychiatric disturbances in varying degrees.

    — 14–18: Understanding the Great War, Stéphane Audoin-Rouzeau, Annette Becker[28]

    Additionally, it has been estimated that anywhere from 18% to 54% of Vietnam war veterans suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.[16]

    Based on 1860 census figures, 8% of all white American males aged 13 to 43 died in the American Civil War, including about 6% in the North and approximately 18% in the South.[47] The war remains the deadliest conflict in American history, resulting in the deaths of 620,000 military personnel. United States military casualties of war since 1775 have totaled over two million. Of the 60 million European military personnel who were mobilized in World War I, 8 million were killed, 7 million were permanently disabled, and 15 million were seriously injured.[48]

    It is estimated that between 1985 and 1994, 378,000 people per year died due to war.[52]

    Arlington National Cemetery: 8 Surprising Facts

    May 28, 2012 By Christopher Klein

    Since 1868, Arlington National Cemetery has been the focal point of national Memorial Day commemorations. As the United States honors its fallen military heroes, explore eight surprising facts about one of the most sacred pieces of ground in America.

    1. Arlington National Cemetery is located on Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s confiscated estate.
      Days after resigning from the U.S. Army on April 20, 1861, to take command of Virginian forces in the Civil War, Robert E. Lee left the Arlington estate where he had married Mary Lee and lived for 30 years. He would never return. After Virginia seceded from the Union on May 23, 1861, Union troops crossed the Potomac River from the national capital and occupied the 200-acre property and house that been built by George Washington Parke Custis, Mary’s father and the step-grandson of George Washington. After Mary Lee, confined to a wheelchair, sent a representative instead of appearing personally to pay a $92.07 tax bill, the government seized the property in 1864. With Washington, D.C., teeming with dead soldiers and out of burial space, Quartermaster General Montgomery C. Meigs formally proposed Arlington as the location of a new military cemetery. On May 13, 1864, 21-year-old Private William Christman of Pennsylvania, who had died of peritonitis, became the first military man buried at Arlington. To ensure the house would forever be uninhabitable for the Lees, Meigs directed graves to be placed as close to the mansion as possible, and in 1866 he ordered the remains of 2,111 unknown Civil War soldiers killed on battlefields near Washington, D.C., to be placed inside a vault in the Lees’ rose garden.
    2. A Supreme Court ruling in 1882 could have resulted in the exhumation of 17,000 graves.
      More than a decade after Lee’s death, the Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. government had seized his estate without due process and ordered it returned to his family in the same condition as when it was illegally confiscated. If followed, the ruling could have required the exhumation of all of Arlington’s dead, but instead Lee’s son officially sold the property to Congress for $150,000 in 1883.
    3. The cemetery hosted the first national Memorial Day commemoration in 1868.
      In 1868, General John A. Logan, commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, officially proclaimed May 30 as Decoration Day “for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion.” The first national commemoration took place at Arlington on May 30, 1868, with General Ulysses S. Grant in attendance and General James Garfield as the featured speaker. Decoration Day was eventually renamed Memorial Day.
    4. Arlington is the only national cemetery to hold servicemen from every war in U.S. history.
      Although the first military burial at Arlington National Cemetery didn’t occur until 1864, the burial ground holds the remains of those who fought in every war since the Revolution. In 1892, soldiers killed in the Revolutionary War were reinterred from a Georgetown cemetery, and casualties from the War of 1812 have been reburied at Arlington as well.
    5. Three World War II enemy combatants are buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
      Scattered among America’s honored dead are two Italian prisoners of war and one German prisoner of war captured during World War II. The three enemy combatants died in captivity in the Washington, D.C., area, and the Geneva Conventions required proper burials. With Arlington being the closest national cemetery, the men were buried there. In total, there are approximately 60 foreign nationals interred in Arlington, most being allied servicemen who perished in air disasters that included American soldiers.
    6. Nearly 4,000 former slaves are buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
      After seizing Lee’s estate, the federal government set aside acreage to be a model community for emancipated, freed and fugitive slaves. Freedman’s Village included farmland, homes, a hospital, a school and a mess hall before shuttering in 1900. African-Americans who lived at the village were buried on the property, and their graves were incorporated into Section 27 of Arlington National Cemetery. Their headstones are inscribed with “citizen” or “civilian.”
    7. There may never be another addition to the Tomb of the Unknowns.
      Among the 5,000 unknowns entombed at Arlington are the unidentified remains of World War I, World War II and Korean War servicemen buried at the Tomb of the Unknowns. An unknown from the Vietnam War was entombed in 1984, but the remains were exhumed in 1998, positively identified by DNA testing as those of Air Force First Lieutenant Michael Joseph Blassie and reinterred at a military cemetery in Missouri. Advancements in DNA testing may mean that all future remains will be able to be positively identified and no future interments at the Tomb of the Unknowns will occur.
    8. Soldiers plant flags in front of every tombstone on Memorial Day weekend.
      On every Memorial Day weekend since 1948, troops in the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment—the Army’s official ceremonial unit known as the “Old Guard”—have placed small American flags in front of all of Arlington’s tombstones. Each flag is planted precisely one foot in front of a grave marker and perfectly centered. This year, 1,700 soldiers participated in the tradition known as “Flags-In.” They planted approximately 220,000 flags on the Thursday evening before Memorial Day, and they will be removed at the holiday’s conclusion.

    “AND THAT’S WHAT OUR COUNTRY HAS TO DO.”

    Group: Fix the national parks we have, don’t create new ones
    by Liz Bowen
    PNP comment: I don’t know who is behind this group, but this certainly sounds like a good idea. — Editor Liz Bowen
    Summary
    A group behind “free market environmentalism” said the nation’s nearly $12 billion backlog of deferred maintenance at national parks could be in part solved by taking care of the ones that already exist, instead of spending money on new ones.

    By Amy Joi O’Donoghue,
    Deseret News
    Published: Sunday, Feb. 21 2016 3:10 p.m. MST
    SALT LAKE CITY — A new report issued by a group promoting “free market environmentalism” said the national park system will observe its 100th anniversary this year with a nearly $12 billion backlog of needed maintenance — something it says seven key strategies would help reduce.
    Consider:
    • A leaky wastewater system dumped raw sewage into the streams in Yosemite.
    • Frequent ruptures in an 83-year-old pipeline system at the Grand Canyon causes water shortages and facility closures.
    • And nearly half the roads in national parks are in fair or poor condition.
    The Property and Environmental Research Center founded 35 years ago in Bozeman, Montana, issued “Breaking the Backlog,” detailing deferred maintenance projects that are five times higher than the National Park Service’s budget.
    Over the past 10 years, Congress has funded 4 percent of the agency’s total backlog, while discretionary spending to address the problem has decreased 40 percent.
    The group founded on property rights principles and markets said it is unrealistic to expect Congress to fix existing problems at national parks like roads, campgrounds, wastewater treatment systems or failing bridges because conserving new land has broader appeal and more political punch.
    The federal government, however, should stop acquiring land for national parks and instead prioritize taking care of the land it already has, the group says.
    “By focusing on land acquisition, limited conservation dollars are spent at the expense of properly maintaining existing lands,” the report notes. “Moreover, adding more public lands can exacerbate the problem because the federal government incurs even more liabilities, often with little or no means of maintaining the additional lands.”
    The group recommends reforming the (LWCF) Land and Water Conservation Fund

    —  which it said has allocated $100 million to acquire 100,000 acres from 2011-2014 — and instead dedicate the federal dollars to maintenance at existing parks.
    That idea is likely to draw cries of protest.
    Multiple key environmental organizations across the country consider the fund’s ability to facilitate the federal government’s acquisition of more public lands sacrosanct, skewering Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, when he proposed reforms last year.
    Paul Wilkins, chief conservation officer for the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, a coalition of sportsmen’s organizations, said there is no need to come up with new strategies to address the maintenance backlog at national parks.

    This is a long standing systemic violation of an American constitutional government, FROM THE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL.

    LET’S START HERE…

    FOLLOW THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS MONEY?

    As our elected government representatives, Congress acts, Congress votes, and Congress funds Congress passes the buck, our taxpayers money, through one appointed federal agency to another appointed agency, to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) a Federal program, to the (DOI) to a military contractor, to the (EPA) to (NOAA) ETAL. using a bit of nepotism here and a bit, political cronyism there, a bit of insider trading, real estate contracts, etc….

    INDEED, OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE HAVE TO FOLLOW THE LAWS THAT THEY COLLECTIVELY ENACTED..

    SHALL I GO ON?

    ———————–

    THE TAXPAYERS MONEY IS OUT OF CONGRESS’S HANDS?

    OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE ARE NO LONGER RESPONSIBLE OR ACCOUNTABLE TO THE AMERICAN CITIZENS THAT ELECTED THEM?

    AFTER CONGRESS HAS APPROPRIATED, AND FUNDED THE APPOINTED SELF SERVING GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, THOSE AGENCIES  ARE NOT ACCOUNTABLE OR RESPONSIBLE TO AMERICAN CITIZEN.

    ——————————
    WHAT’S EVEN WORSE? HOW COULD IT BE ANY WORSE?

    AS WE FOLLOW THE TAXPAYERS MONEY TRAIL?

    OUR TAXPAYER MONEY IS ALL GONE,

    WHERE OUR TAXPAYER MONEY HAS GONE TO, IT HAS BEEN DIVERSIFIED TO FUND AND THE GRANT THE GLOBAL AGENDA 21, SELF SERVING NON-GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS (NGO) THAT HAVE ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY TO ANYONE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    WASHINGTON — It’s OK to evangelize. But it’s not OK to proselytize.

    That’s what the Pentagon said Thursday, attempting to clarify its position on religious speech in uniform as controversy swirled up around press reports over possible prosecutions of troops for sharing their faith.

    What it comes down to, officials said, is that discussing matters of faith and religious practice with a willing audience is allowed, but pushing religious beliefs on those who don’t want to hear it is a form of harassment forbidden under Defense Department policies.

    “Service members can share their faith (evangelize), but must not force unwanted, intrusive attempts to convert others of any faith or no faith to one’s beliefs (proselytization),” Pentagon spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen said in a written statement.

    Officials said there was no plan to step up disciplinary action to weed out unacceptable religious speech.

    Outlets including the Fox News website and the Washington Times published an earlier statement from Christensen that appeared to raise the possibility of prosecutions.

    “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense,” the statement read. “Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis.”

    The lead of a story that appeared on the Washington Times website Thursday concluded that the Pentagon meant that “Soldiers who promote their faith can be prosecuted under military law.”

     But officials said the quote combined two separate statements — one about regulations against proselytization and another about how court martials are brought — to wrongly raise the specter of a move to bring increase disciplinary and legal actions against religious activity.

    The earlier quote from Christensen appeared in stories about a meeting last week between Mikey Weinstein, the controversial head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and Air Force officials.

    Weinstein, who has long waged a public fight to dismantle what he sees as an ingrained culture of proselytization by some Christian officers, met with officials including the Air Force Judge Advocate General and deputy chief of chaplains to express his concern about matters of religious freedom.

    The Pentagon, however, stressed that Weinstein is not a DOD consultant or a member of any advisory board.

    Pie N Politics.com was created by the Scott Valley PROTECT OUR WATER (POW), which said “NO” to California Dept. of Fish and Game, when the agency began demanding landowners purchase a PERMIT to use their legally-owned irrigation water. Siskiyou farmers, ranchers and landowners are leaders in this battle.

    This is the statement I found on their website

    Pie N Politics  Like many areas of the United States, citizens in Siskiyou County are finding government regulations are destroying their RIGHTS. This includes Water Rights, Property Rights and Individual Rights. We believe in the Constitutions of the United States and State of California that provide RIGHTS for its citizens. We also believe these RIGHTS are being systematically reduced, which is resulting in tyranny from our governments — at all levels.

    Under the U.S. Constitution, the government should serve the people!

    When women address issues, they have a more pragmatic approach, dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations.

    What is the PROBLEM?  Who? What? When? Where? and Why?

    It doesn’t  take much, for a woman to connect the dots and figure it out, it is not just one government problem.

    It is the trickle down effect, both water and fear run downhill from WA DC. to our state level, to our local level and “We the People” are finding government regulations are destroying citizens  RIGHTS. This includes Water Rights, Property Rights and Individual Rights.

    Various government agencies are violating the Constitution, taking away private property rights, and infringing on  our right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness…

    We also believe these RIGHTS are being systematically reduced, which is resulting in tyranny from our governments — AT ALL LEVELS.

    Of course, Women may also be effected and effective with the “mama bear” phenomenon.  A biological bit of “I am woman watch me roar.” Call it the “Mama Bear N Politics”

    I insist on using HUMOR and I love  this description.

    I may seem quiet and reserved, but if you mess with my children, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

    Hmmm… I have three children, ten grandchildren and eight great grandchildren and the government is messing with their future.

    Veterans Adminstration employee charged with falsifying medical records

    VA Employee Charged With Falsifying Medical Records Of Numerous Veterans

    AUGUSTA, GA: A 50-count indictment, unsealed today in federal court, has charged Cathedral Henderson, 50, a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) employee and the former Chief of Fee Basis over non-VA Care at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center in Augusta, Georgia, with crimes related to his alleged falsification of the medical records of numerous VA patients. The indictment alleges that Henderson terminated unresolved consults – medical appointments that had not been scheduled or completed – by falsely stating in VA patients’ medical records that “services have been completed or patient refused services.”
    United States Attorney Edward Tarver stated, “The crimes alleged in this indictment are troubling. Our VA officials and employees are entrusted with the health and welfare of some of the most honorable and vulnerable in our nation – our veterans. Patients, doctors, nurses and hospitals rely heavily upon the truth and accuracy of our permanent medical records. The intentional falsification of veterans’ medical records is a serious offense and will not be tolerated.”
    Assistant Inspector General for Investigations Quentin G. Aucoin stated, “The VA Office of Inspector General (OIG) vigorously investigates allegations regarding VA employees who alter medical records with false statements in order to conceal unfulfilled consults for medical procedures. These alleged actions give the appearance that medical care was rendered or, in some cases, the appearance that veterans declined medical care. Alterations of medical records and false statements in these records needlessly expose patients to harm and also undermine the integrity of VA data relied upon by VA decision-makers, who oversee and manage operations.”
    Henderson has been charged with 50 counts of making false statements. If convicted, Henderson faces a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count. An indictment is only an accusation and is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the Government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
    The case was investigated by Special Agents from the VA-OIG’s Office of Investigations, with assistance from clinical staff in the VA-OIG’s Office of Healthcare Inspections. Assistant United States Attorney Lamont Belk is prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States. Any questions should be directed to First Assistant United States Attorney James D. Durham at (912) 201-2547.
