The US government is bringing militarized police units with heavy weapons, not into the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, but instead into hospitals and clinics around the US. We have learned that the agency tasked with helping America’s war veterans is expecting an outbreak of terrorism. Those it is arming to fight aren’t Al Qaeda or Al Shabab, but rather wounded and disabled veterans.
Veterans angry at abuse and neglect by the government are being targeted by the Department of Veterans Affairs, according to sources within the legal community, and are being purposefully pushed to violence in order to justify a crackdown on veterans, including the seizure of guns and a limitation on citizenship rights.
In May 2014, Veterans Affairs Secretary Shinseki was forced to resign after CNN published a story outlining relatively minor corruption at one VA facility in Phoenix, Arizona. Insiders who were aware that far greater crimes had been ongoing for decades knew what was really happening. Secretary Shinseki’s attempt to “clean house” had threatened organized crime’s stranglehold on this department, and he had to be forced out.
Since Shinseki’s departure, according to senior veteran law specialist Robert Walsh, advisor to Veterans Today, signaled an open war on veterans, one intended to bring about violent confrontation. Walsh states:
“The new vets coming in are getting hammered just as bad as we did; they have guns and are really hardcore after 3-5 tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of the corrupt VA functionaries better watch their “sixes.” The World War II, Korean War and Vietnam vets were a little housebroken and had manners. These new vets, not so much. When they stop killing themselves and recognize the real enemy, watch out.”
On the Local Scene
At 5 AM, I received a call from a disabled veteran who was preparing to leave his home and immediately move to a homeless shelter. The vet had received a strange document from the DVA, one that led him to believe his life was about to be shattered forever, leaving him both penniless and homeless.
When I reviewed the document that frightened this veteran, nearly to the point of suicide, I was shocked. I had received one also; a strange and misleading missive clearly intended to victimize America’s war veterans, a group plagued with post-traumatic stress and, since 2007 according to the Bureau of Census, over 170,000 suicides. Now there would be more, veterans terrified of homelessness and starvation at the hands of a bureaucracy stained with blood, corrupt to the core.
This week the Department of Veterans Affairs sent out letters to all of America’s millions of disabled veterans. Inside the packet, which included a booklet, was a mysterious form. The document began with an apology, using the term “compassionate regret”, and then went on to warn the veteran that their benefits, pension and health care, were being terminated and that the veteran could appeal.
These form letters are intended to be sent to veterans who have undergone a “comp and pension” exam in order to assess their disability and are only sent out when there is a “negative finding”.
It Gets Worse
Additionally, this huge government bureaucracy, with a long history of no oversight, a history that is stained by decades of corruption at every level, has fostered close relationships with members of congress, particularly members with close relationships to organized crime.
The Department of Veterans Affairs runs one of the largest hospital systems in the world with a budget larger than most nations. In the process, the DVA has acquired vast tracts of land, sometimes in cities like Los Angeles, where tracts of veterans land can be worth billions of dollars. Local DVA officials hand out this land to anyone they wish, allow oil drilling, private schools, or wealthy and powerful groups to simply use it at will. When a high court declared these acts crimes, the DVA has decided to spend millions to fight for the right to continue to break the law.
We are quickly moving toward armed confrontations between veterans pushed to despair and a corrupt government officials hoping for a “terror attack” by “fear-crazed veterans” in order to redirect public awareness from their own criminal acts.
First it was police departments, sent to Israel for training in genocide, armed with tanks and heavy weapons, turning every city, town and village in America into a potential warzone. Now it’s hospitals, dental offices, clinics… places typically thought of as a safe haven.
In a recent visit to the VA Regional Medical Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a special operations team of DVA “police” was seen, in full armor, helmets, flak vests, automatic weapons, just waiting. What was happening on the floors above them was why they may be needed.
Cruelty Training for Medical “Professionals”
The vast majority of employees at DVA medical centers are trained and caring professionals. However, the DVA keeps an “inventory” of “floaters,” marginal employees, many with questionable qualifications, revoked medical licenses, drug or psychiatric disorders or worse, sometimes much worse.
These groups are trained to use confrontational tactics, to insult or anger aging veterans, patients in severe pain or those suffering from combat stress. Their goal is to force those who will leave to simply seek treatment elsewhere or die at home.
Their other goal is to initiate a violent response in order to call on the “storm troopers” hidden away on the lower floors, usually between X-ray and the morgue. Many an octogenarian veteran, confined to a wheel chair, will spent his dying moments raging against disrespect and abuse at the hands of a VA “floater”.
The DVA has two types of classes taught to personnel who arrive at a facility. These workers are medical professionals with years of experience who are normally expected and legally required to treat patients with respect, follow a strict regimen of confidentiality and to maintain standards of behavior.
One class teaches normal human respect and behavior. It is assumed, perhaps rightly so, that these basic human skills are not to be expected of government employees.
However, the other class is something quite unique. Here, employees are coached in tormenting the sick and injured. You see, in a medical system where getting a patient to leave a facility is better than curing a disease, a “government medical system”, a missing patient is considered a “favorable outcome”.
The problem now is that with criminal charges sitting over hundreds of DVA officials, simply tormenting patients is not enough. The DVA is now planning to get into the “false flag terror” business. I expect they will be good at it.
