It appears that there is no end to what Obama’s Veterans Administration will do to hurt our military veterans. VA employees falsified and destroyed records to cover the failure of facilities to provide treatment to hundreds, and perhaps thousands of veterans. This led to many unnecessary deaths of America’s heroes. At the same time the VA has been taking away the Constitutional rights of veterans, declaring them incompetent to handle their own financial affairs, and then denying them the right to own firearms.

          Not satisfied with these outrages, the VA is now forcing the cancellation of the celebration of Christmas in VA hospitals around the country. This has actually been going on for several years and has been accelerating. I am currently mobilizing the resources of the United States Justice Foundation to fight what is happening. I am particularly familiar with what has transpired at four VA facilities in Texas.

          I have been proud to support and work with a group in Dallas, Texas called Vet to Vet. It was formed 21 years ago by a good friend and fellow veteran named Jess Johnson and his wife Peggy to assist veterans in the VA hospitals in the area. It started out small with the taking of hamburgers and coffee to patients, but over the years grew into a major effort, covering four major facilities in Texas and Vet to Vet chapters being formed throughout the country.

          The program in Dallas and the VA facilities in Bonham, Waco, and Temple, Texas has parties, bingo games, and barbeques throughout the year, but their major effort occurs on Christmas each year when they provide 4,000 gifts to over 1,600 patients. They also collected food donations and cooked and delivered Christmas dinners to hundreds of patients. Spiritual comfort is also provided and if patients request a bible one will be given to them.

           For many veterans who have no family, this was the only Christmas they would get. Now, all of that is coming to an end. Several years ago VA officials began telling Jess and his organization that they could no longer give bibles to patients, wish them a Merry Christmas, or even use the word Christmas in the facilities, or mention Jesus Christ. Then a year later they told the group that they could no longer bring Christmas dinners to the facilities.

          This is more than political correctness run amok. This is the unconstitutional denial of the freedom of religion to the very men and women who put their lives on the line to defend that freedom, as well as the rest of the Constitution. This is not just happening in Texas, it is nationwide. VA hospitals are banning Christmas trees, Christmas cards, and national military cemeteries in places like Houston, Texas have attempted to ban Christian prayers at the funerals of veterans, and even any mention of God or religion.  

          Jess Johnson will be the guest on my radio show “Our Constitution” this Wednesday, Dec. 16th. We broadcast live at 3:00 pm Central time, but the show is archived so you can download it anytime. You can access the show at:

          While investigating this outrage we are also hearing from veterans around the country about how the VA has turned the “Veterans Choice Program” into another VA scam defrauding veterans and risking their health and their lives. The law was passed by Congress in response to numerous verified reports of veterans dying because they could not get treatment at VA hospitals.

          The law is supposed to allow veterans who live over 40 miles from a VA hospital or clinic to get health care locally and have it paid for by the VA. However, the program is helping few veterans, particularly if they have serious health problems. For example, veterans who have cancer or serious heart conditions and live over 40 miles from a VA hospital are being denied local treatment because the VA will claim that there is a VA “facility” within 40 miles of the veteran’s home. These may include VA dental clinics, or VA clinics that have the primary responsibility of making appointments at VA hospitals.

          In neither case can a veteran get actual treatment for cancer, heart problems or other serious illnesses. These veterans are back where they started, having to travel long distances to VA hospitals where they still have problems even getting an appointment, much less actual treatment. Our government is not only dishonoring our veterans, but in some cases still killing them.

Sue... How about this.... Why don't those of us who want to confront those in leadership affiliated with the VA, state and National put our heads together and draft a letter of complaint. We can also forward it to the various veterans groups and assiciations. I know a lot of VA reps work tirelessly fighting for veterans rights and benifits if they saw enough of us confronting what their facing on a daily basis it would encourage and embolden them I think.
Right on the nose Colonel! People are talking in their localities. They know something is coming and preparations are being made. Talk to the people that of similar minds at gunshows, and become friends with gunsmiths, and start preparing for action.
They can't afford for us to unite! Which is happening.
Here is a rough, first draft... For those who wish to participate, please make corrections, additions and or deletions as you see fit. If we put our heads together we will come up with a document which will get their attention. I think we should also sent it to various legal groups who work for Veterans rights:
WE are Veterans and family members of veterans who have served our country honorably.
THIS is to inform you that we will no longer tolerate your outright abuse and violation of the constitutional rights of Americas veterans.
YOUR. refusing to allow Christian displays and conversation and Christian charity, your refusal to allow Christian prayers at veterans funerals is a violation of our right to free speech and our freedom of religion.
YOUR refusal to allow veterans to be treated at a non VA facility if the veteran lives over 40 miles from a VA hospital by using a VA "clinic" which cannot treat the veteran is an affront to the very purpose for which it was originally intended and you continue to put veterans lives at risk.
WE who served will not stand by and allow your "political" correctness and "outright" violations of our freedoms to continue.
WE are putting you on notice that we will hold each of you personally responsible both legally and at the voting booth.
WE are also sending copies of this notice to all veterans groups, associations and legal organizations who will work together with us to force you to uphold our constitutional and legal rights.
YOU have become as the Scriptures say, " A den of thieves" and we veterans are going to clean out the temple you call the VA.
Americas Veterans.

sounds good to me. We trained at Ft.Campbell ,KY int he summer of 69 as a reflection of Gen.George Washington's General ORders  July9,1776 to so live and act as becomes a Christian Soldier..." I try to wear

Christian "witness" T's whenever I have a VA appointment . They  told me I had to  go up to Mental Health--t o get the Meds they say I need to control my service connectd  disability.--Seizures and  Bi-polar--No problem-- I went there and some  anti-gun  college girl started asking me about any guns in my house? I asked her about our Second Amendment  and was told  'some people think the Second Amendment protections do not apply to people like you. " Not the way I read the Amendment. I said I cannot help you r anybody  destroy our fundamental rights.They said they can't help me. Now they  are trying to document  that  I need  my service connected  disability re-evaluated. Still refuse to  help them shred the Second Amendment.

I can't change heir policy -nor control it. But when our Government  has turned from God and no longer encourages Christianity-- No wonder the Muslims HATE us..Count me among your  file. 

You can get the D.A.V. Involved .Also V.F.W.
Disabled American Veterans
Veterans Foreign Wars .

Please consider this one too. ( I sent it to my Representatives - Texas )

Dear Congressman John Carter
DON"T FORGOT ABOUT THIS LAW......Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration
The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by "force, violence, or other unconstitutional means." This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House. Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life's guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any "organization" that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited

So right-- and this current daisey cutter of a PResidential Administration is SO WRONG!

I agree Michael! Let's Roll!!
Ok Robert!! Let's see if others can add some teeth to this and then we will send it out to every group and leader and VA official we can think of. I know we're all sick of this crap. I wish the groups that Old Rooster posted, and that's a wealth of information could somehow be brought together under some type of Internet umbrella so we could all interface with each other. There's strength in numbers I'm just not computer savy to get it done or know if it's even possible.

Michael M. Regan , are you talking about Old Rooster ( the real man , flesh and bones )??
I know him in person , big buddy of mine and Patriot to the bone ; I can talk to him and tell him to come here and check your request here . Let me know . ,

Raffalele... Yes Old Rooster posted a couple of websites where people could look up militias its a wealth of information. And Rooster is ABSOLUTLY correct in getting connected in your local. I just wish somehow we could tie all these patriot groups together as far as communicating and sending out information. Being able to communicate with like minded patriots is essential not just now but will be imperative with what looks like what's coming down the road.
As far as this letter I'm trying to get people to work with me on to the VA I want to distribute it to ALL parties involved and let them know we are going to hold them accountable for what they do and don't do, anything you can add or do would be appreciated by all I'm sure.

Michael , I will call him ASAP and tell him to come here . ,
