If You Like Your VA You can Keep Your VA

140521mad about VA

When a vet asks for treatment at the Phoenix VA his request is entered into one set of books. When the time draws near that he will actually be treated he’s entered into the real set of books. That way long waits look short and bureaucrats get bonuses.

Veterans Affairs boss Eric Shinseki says he’s mad as hell about this. It’s all news to president Obama. He found out about it on CNN. Now he’s madder than hell. But not mad enough to fire Shinseki.

VA for the 21st Century

You can go here to see the President bragging in 2009 about resetting the VA for the 21st century.

Death from Complications of Execution

140430-complications-of-execution

 Suffering pets are put down humanely every day. Same goes for gramps if you live in Holland or Washington state. So what is  it about death with dignity for degenerates?

Capital punishment by lethal injections is botched 7% of the times. It happened again last week in Oklahoma and last January in Ohio.

In 1999 Clayton Derrell Lockett shot Stephanie Neiman twice and then buried her alive in Oklahoma. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to die.

At 6:23 pm April 29, 2014, lest he be stressed out about his own demise, Lockett was given the sedative midazolam . He nodded off ten minutes later. Then a paralytic to stop respiration was administered along with potassium chloride to stop his heart. I’m not sure about the need to paralyze and suffocate the guy. It seems like stopping his heart might accomplish both those goals.

Execution Complications

Anyway, it didn’t work. Lockett started thrashing around and exclaimed “Oh man!”. At that point the proceedings were stopped. But the executioners blew that too. Lockett suffered a heart attack and died 43 minutes after the initial sedation.

Apparently, he succumbed to complications of his own execution.

 

Ben Rhodes Benghazi Memo

 The White House was forced to cough up another Benghazi memo this week because of a FOIA request by Judicial Watch.  The memo written by Ben Rhodes urged staffers to emphasize the line that the 9/11/2012 Benghazi attack was caused by an anti-Muslim movie and not a failure of policy. The attack killed a US ambassador and 3 others. At the time the president was bragging that he had decimated al Qaeda.  The White House feared news of a planned terror attack would tarnish the president’s  campaign theme.  Rhodes and others prepped Susan Rice for 5 Sunday talk shows with the message that a demonstration against the video got out of hand, causing the violence in the Benghazi compound.

This Catherine Herridge report shows General Robert Lovell testifying that there were no ant-video demonstrations preceding the Benghazi attack.

Benghazi Memo

Charles Krauthammer says the release of the Rhodes e-mail is up there with the discovery of the Nixon tapes.

Last night Bret Baier asked National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor if he changed Susan Rice’s talking points from terror “attack” to “demonstrations” protesting a video. Spokesman Vietor replied, “Dude, this was like two years ago.”

 

Cliven Bundy Steps in It

140424 Cliven Bundy

Just when Cliven Bundy was generating sympathy for standing up to the man he opened his mouth and stepped in it

Crazy Cliven’s cows graze on on federal grass and he hasn’t paid the bill for 20 years. That makes him sort of a welfare queen of the range. Which is why it was surprising to hear him talking about “negroes” on government subsidy. Here he is in his own words:

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”
