Barack Obama visits the Phoenix VA for more bread and circuses, as we learn that U.S. Government healthcare is lingering death

Barack Hussein Obama arrived in Phoenix, Arizona on Friday the Thirteenth to visit the embattled and scandal ridden Veterans Administration Medical Center. Delayed care, secret waiting lists are the allegations. I'm sure people have needlessly died, as billions are spent of office furniture and light fixtures. After all, the contracts and pay offs trump veteran care. That's how the "business" works. 

I spent several hours, among the protesters, on the street. Many of the lemmings and sheeple were dissatisfied with their lives, but were unaware that Barack Obama was only the symptom and not the cause of their woes. The most ridiculous person was the man holding the megaphone and flag. Out of one side of his face, he supported the U.S. Constitution. Out of the other side of his face, he wanted to impeach Barack Obama and replace him with the war criminal suspect and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. So much for being Constitutional. I only wish I had recorded this useful idiot's ridiculous remarks. Video

“We’ll spend money for doctors for illegals coming across the border, we’ll provide transportation, provide housing for them, but we won’t do that for our veterans,” said U.S. Army veteran Robert Hogan. Seen wearing a red, white and blue bandana and waving a pro-gun flag, protester Nohl Rosen took to the megaphone to argue that President Obama be arrested and chanted the popular protest slogan “veterans before illegals.” (Editor's note: Brian Fore is a journalism student at the ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and wrote the article as a class assignment.) More

Obama’s VA Failure: Huge Budget Increases and Expanded Staff Didn’t Mean Better Service

According to the government’s own data, the VA spent $108.2 billion in 2010, the first appropriation under Obama’s watch, and will spend $150 billion this year, a 46 percent increase. Those budget increases, highlighted in a new video from the Concerned Veterans for America, allowed VA staffing to rise by about 12 percent over that time period. Since 2007, the VA’s budget has doubled, and VA staff has increased 36 percent, while the number of veteran enrollees grew by just 14 percent. The Blaze

The President's motorcade was greeted with cheers and boos as he arrived at the hospital. A few hundred people came out protesting, to send a message about the treatment veterans received at the hospital. After the President arrived most of the crowd dispersed, and the Phoenix Police Department says although there were a lot of people here it was a peaceful protest. KSAZ

Meanwhile, the other victims of government intervention in healthcare are, in all likelihood, going to outnumber those that benefit. Again, the ACA only works, if you don't. About 190,000 Coloradans will lose access next year to health insurance plans which don't comply with the Affordable Care Act, the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) decided. "President Obama lied to the American people when he said 'if you like your plan you can keep your plan' and now Colorado families are being forced to bear the burden of that lie," Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colorado) wrote to 9NEWS. AT

While veterans in recent years were dying as they waited for care at Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals, the VA has wasted billions of taxpayer dollars on controversial projects across the country, according to government reports and members of Congress... "All of this was aesthetics," Paul Blatnak, a private construction manager on the project, said at a court hearing in May. "Nobody was interested in cleaning up the aesthetics so that we could improve or add to the patient care." CNN

On March 3, 1865, a month before the Civil War ended, President Abraham Lincoln signed a law to establish a national soldiers and sailor’s asylum. Renamed the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers in 1873, it was the first government institution in the world created specifically for honorably discharged volunteer soldiers. The first National Home, known as Eastern Branch of the National Asylum for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, opened November 1, 1866, near Augusta, ME. VA

The Illusion of Democracy

The electoral process is an essential part of “the consent of the governed” defined by Rousseau. In almost all of the so-called democratic countries, however, the important act of voting to elect the people’s representatives has become an exercise in futility. Today politicians, who still have the audacity to call themselves public servants, are the obedient executors of the trans-national global corporate elite. News Junkie Post

On June 10th, 1932, Congressman Louis T. McFadden, a former banker who was at that time the chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, gave an impassioned speech on the House floor regarding the threat to our nation posed by the Federal Reserve System.  Rep McFadden (Rep-PA) recognized the destructive impact it would have on our country and urged that it be eliminated and that the United States return to sound banking practices.
