Seldom does one see a more indisputable example of a systemic culture of corruption than is currently being exposed within the Veterans Administration right now. At this point, no less than 7 VA Hospitals have been proven to have secret wait lists which in effect deny medical services to American Veterans. What one must understand though, is that this is not corruption exclusive to the Veterans Administration, but both systemic and endemic to the entire Federal Government and fostered in large part by no less than the Obamanation Administration itself.
Yesterday, VA Secretary Eric Shinseki declared himself “mad as hell” over the allegations of wait-list fraud in Phoenix, where 40 veterans passed away before accessing medical assistance while the office falsified records. Shinseki also pronounced himself saddened by the consequences of the VA’s failures, and pledged to get to the bottom of them — and allegations at five other offices that arose from other whistleblowers:
At nearly the same time as Shinseki testified yesterday, the Ocala News (Florida) reported that a seventh VA office in Gainesville had discovered a secret wait list that had 200 veterans waiting for medical care:
Three mental health administrators at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville have been placed on administrative leave after U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs officials found a “secret” waiting list of more than 200 patients, a local union president said Thursday. …
News recently surfaced of alleged secret waiting lists and falsified records at VA hospitals around the country, including reports of allegations that some veterans on such a list at the Veterans Affairs Health Care system in Phoenix had died while waiting for appointments. Reports have said the secret waiting lists were meant to hide delays and could have been used so management executives could get bonuses related to shorter wait times.
Muriel Newman, union president for the local chapter of the American Federation of Government Employees, told The Sun that the VA administration had placed chief psychiatrist Dr. Rajiv Tandon, administrative officer Karen Chin and Peter Durand, the chief of the mental health service call line, on administrative leave after the discovery of the list at the Gainesville VA hospital.
Wisnieski confirmed those three employees have been placed on paid administrative leave while a review is conducted into the list and the circumstances surrounding it.
Keep these other examples of this culture of corruption in mind when thinking about what is transpiring within the VA. Erick Holder’s Department of Injustice engaged in the illegal sales and trafficking of Arms to Mexican drug Cartels, then stonewalled congress about it eventually resulting in Erick Holder being convicted of Contempt of Congress.
The Whitehouse violated the War Powers Act in order to use military force to overthrow the Libyan Government, then when Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other American’s were murdered both the Whitehouse and the State Department conspired to lie to and deceive the American people regarding what Ambassador Stevens was doing in Benghazi on 9/11/12, and the exact reason for the attack on the Embassy facility.
Then there is that pesky little problem with the IRS being used to crush Obama’s political opponents.
Ted Cruz has compiled a list of 76 incident where Barack Obama ordered his minions to engage in illegal acts.
A short example of what is on that list…
1. “Obama implemented portions of the DREAM Act by executive action”
2. “Ended some terror asylum restrictions”
3. “Recognized same sex marriage in Utah despite a Supreme Court stay on a court order allowing the institution”
4. “Illegally revealed the existence of sealed indictments in the Benghazi investigation”
5. “Illegally delayed Obamacare verification of eligibility for healthcare subsidies”
6. “Ordered Boeing to fire 1,000 employees in South Carolina and shut down a new factory because it was non-union”
7. “Terminated the pensions of 20,000 non-union Delphi employees in the GM bankruptcy.”
8. “Government agencies are engaging in ‘Operation Choke Point,’ where the government asks banks to ‘choke off’ access to financial services for customers engaging in conduct the Administration does not like—such as ‘ammunition sales.’”
This is a pattern of corruption that honestly can only be characterized as institutional, systemic and endemic.
