Medical staff warned: Keep your mouths shut about illegal immigrants or face arrest

 

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution. Continue reading at foxnews.com.

Hegseth On Shinseki’s Resignation: This Is Only The Beginning

“We need both reform and a reformer.”

 Arlington, Va. – In an historic move, President Obama accepted the resignation of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Sec. Eric Shinseki, following evidence of widespread patient backlogs and alleged cover-ups by administrators throughout the VA healthcare system.

Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) was the first veterans organization to call for Secretary Shinseki to step down, doing so over a year ago. CVA was recently joined by The American Legion—the nation’s largest veterans group—in calling for Shinseki’s resignation.

Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, issued the following statement:

“Concerned Veterans for America fully supports President Obama’s decision to accept Sec. Shinseki’s resignation. More importantly, we emphasize that it doesn’t solve the widespread, systemic problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs. In fact, this is only the beginning. We need both reforms and a reformer, which is why it’s essential for Congress to pass systemic reforms at VA in the coming weeks and months, bringing real accountability, transparency, and choice to the Department of Veterans Affairs. The government is failing our veterans; it’s time to get to work fixing VA.”

Hitler Finds Out He Can’t Keep His Doctor Under Obamacare

Hitler learns that he is losing his doctor because Dr Steiner is not in the network for his new health insurance.
Also, I would like to apologize to anyone who is, is related to, or knows any proctologists named Feingold. The use of the name Dr. Feingold is not meant to make fun of any individual, except for President Obama – Crapplefratz

Congress, Do Your Job on VA Scandal

An Op-Ed by Pete Hegseth, CEO of Concerned Veterans for America

The Obama administration wants to be clear: they’re very, very angry over the dysfunctional state of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), where reports of falsified wait lists and delayed care at VA medical centers are growing into a national scandal for the executive branch.

Specifically, administration officials say they’re “mad as hell.” That’s how VA Secretary Eric Shinseki described his response to the scandal in testimony to the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee last week. Read more at foxnews.com.

The VA scandal has hit “home” as it has reached the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center here in Gainesville.

First there was Obamacare.  It went so well that the federal government has expanded the program:  Now there’s ObamaGolf.  After all, everyone has a right to golf – And the subsidies are great.  By the way, I’m not sure if it’s official yet, but I’ve heard that the president has appointed Kathleen Sebelius as the new head of the Department of Golf and Green Services (GGS) and that she will be running the program – assuming that she will be confirmed by congress that is.

The Obama Administration is a Kingdom of Lies

 (Post continues below graphic)

By Stephen Bowers  May 5, 2014

O.K.

Enough already.

I was happy to get on the band wagon on Obama’s first Inauguration and wish him well as President. (I did not vote for him.) Even though the Nation knew nothing about him, I figured he couldn’t screw things up too badly. It was only for four years.  The electorate isn’t so stupid as to elect a person who was unfit. And if things went wrong we can correct any mistakes.

Best of all I thought the election of the First Black President (FBP here after) would finally shut up the professional race-baiters. Silly me.  I’ve noticed that liars do not stop lying, nor do they ever become shamed by their lies when caught…when telling lies is how they “earn” their living. they just ratchet up the force and emotion of the lies. (see Goebbels, Joey.) and, in spite of our electing the FBP, America is still a “racist” nation…according to Al Sharpton. (I still think he looked better back when he was sporting a Mary Tyler Moore hairdo.)  Read more at eaglerising.com.

40 Veterans Die at Phoenix VA | Time to Demand Accountability

New Video from Concerned Veterans for America: “Demand Accountability”

Video Highlights The Dysfunctional VA Healthcare System And Calls On Harry Reid To Support The VA Management Accountability Act

Arlington, Va. ­– Concerned Veterans for America today released a new web video, “Demand Accountability,” as part of its ongoing VA Accountability project, which calls for reform of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and supports the VA Management Accountability Act—a bill that gives the Secretary of Veterans Affairs the power to hold managers accountable for their performance—both positively and negatively.

“Demand Accountability,” which focuses on the VA healthcare system’s culture of dysfunction, highlights the recent news that 40 vets’ deaths have been linked to long wait times for care at the Phoenix VA and points out the large cash bonuses VA administrators around the country received even after overseeing hospitals where severe mismanagement exposed veterans to health risks and in some cases even led to their deaths. The video also calls on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to support the VA Management Accountability Act.

Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, issued the following statement:

“Just yesterday The American Legion called for the resignation of the Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki—action we fully support and called for at CVA a year ago. But replacing Shinseki won’t actually lead to reform unless the next VA secretary is empowered to hold managers and administrators accountable for their poor performance. That’s why the VA Management Accountability Act is so important; it equips VA leaders with the tools necessary for meaningful reform.”

Trust Me, I’m a Doctor

What will happen when today’s doctors are gone and they are replaced by  a new generation of doctors who know only the government way? Will the term do no harm be replaced with spend no money?

“At 58, I’ll likely be retired in 10 years along with most physicians of my generation. Once we’re gone, who will speak up for our profession and the individual physician in the trenches? The politicians? Our medical societies? Our hospital administrators? I think not. Now is the time for physicians to say enough is enough.” – Dr. Daniel F. Craviotto, Jr.

The above paragraph was excerpted from a letter written by a practicing physician that appeared in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal. He speaks about the state of medicine he as alerady experienced under Obamacare and what is sure to come.  This is not the first letter form a doctor I have posted here and it surely will not be the last. I will continue to speak out. Read Dr. Craviotto’s full letter:

By Daniel F. Craviotto, Jr.

In my 23 years as a practicing physician, I’ve learned that the only thing that matters is the doctor-patient relationship. How we interact and treat our patients is the practice of medicine. I acknowledge that there is a problem with the rising cost of health care, but there is also a problem when the individual physician in the trenches does not have a voice in the debate and is being told what to do and how to do it.

As a group, the nearly 880,000 licensed physicians in the U.S. are, for the most part, well-intentioned. We strive to do our best even while we sometimes contend with unrealistic expectations. The demands are great, and many of our families pay a huge price for our not being around. We do the things we do because it is right and our patients expect us to.

So when do we say damn the mandates and requirements from bureaucrats who are not in the healing profession? When do we stand up and say we are not going to take it any more? Continue reading at online.wsj.com.
