Our federal government treats illegal aliens better than veterans.
There are organizations that support brave men and women of the armed forces to get help navigating the bureaucracy of the Veterans Administration - but they are privately funded with no help from feds.Unfortunately, after the Gulf War, Congress passed legislation that opted out the federal government obligation to its veterans because they realized their “Early-Out” program was costing more than they wanted to pay; ignoring how much funding and material is being spent and sent to foreign nations – clearly an area to cut back rather than cut back on our national defense and military system. It took ten years for Congress and Veterans Administration to recognize the Gulf War Syndrome – and then told veterans they were not qualified for retroactive payment because too much time had passed since initial compensation request for verified medical conditions. In addition, because of a bill passed by Congress in 1996, six years after the Gulf War, veterans who are supposed to get medical compensation will have that amount deducted from the “Early-Out” program applied by the Clinton administration to cut down on the military – before any veteran can receive a medical compensation check for injuries, disease, and health complications due to activity in war zones.
Ronald Reagan had a policy that a strong military and defense provided concrete deterrence against foreign enemies better than any other policy. That means technological advancement, which later administrations, like Clinton policies, allowed the Chinese to steal.
Under the Obama administration matters worsened, in terms of underfunding and the attitude and corruption within the Veterans Administration; congressional members who send troops in harms way, but ignore the needs of active and veteran service members and their families.
Five Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band that originated from Las Vegas, Nevada, debuting with their first album entitled The Way of the Fist, released in 2007. The band originated with vocalist Ivan Moody, guitarist Zoltan Bathory, guitarist Caleb Andrew Bingham, bassist Matt Snell, and drummer Jeremy Spencer. Bingham was replaced with guitarist Darrell Roberts in 2006, who was then replaced by Jason Hook in 2009. Bassist Matt Snell departed in 2010, replaced by Chris Kael in 2011.
The name of the band is derived from classic martial arts cinema.
In August of 2014, Five Finger Death Punch released a video for the song “Wrong Side of Heaven”, a video about homeless veterans suffering from PTSD, TBI and depression after serving in the military, yet not receiving the help needed by an uncaring federal government and inept Veterans Administration. Here is the video, courtesy of VEVO-YouTube …

Illegal aliens are treated better and a soldier who deserted and then got captured, is traded for five Islamic Jihadists from Guantanamo.
You know, the only one we can't get back into the country is our Marine. I mean, everyone else is flowing in from Mexico and the Marine is stuck in prison.
The Marine Trump is referring to is Andrew Tahmooressi, who crossed in to Mexico with firearms mistakenly and being held by the Mexican government in prison. [See also: Twitter users want to trade Andrew Tahmooressi for Miley Cyrus.
I strongly believe that within the next four weeks U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi will be released from El Hongo Federal Prison in Mexico and able to walk on American soil once again. … I have been providing legal and spiritual support to Andrew and his mom, Jill, since May. I assisted Jill in hiring Fernando Benitez, Andrew’s Mexican lawyer, and have worked closely with him during the last three court hearings. … Andrew had no intention of entering Mexico with firearms, and there is proof. The video evidence taken by Mexican customs officials at the border, which was entered into evidence at the hearing in Tijuana Federal Court on Sept. 9, confirms Andrew’s version of the facts and impeaches the testimony of customs officers who previously testified under oath. It is clear that Andrew received the green light to enter Mexico without being stopped, and that he was the one who decided to contact a customs officer in an effort to find a way to turn around. Therefore, he lacked the necessary criminal intent to commit the crimes alleged. … The Mexican Constitution requires that a search warrant be issued prior to a search of a vehicle stopped at the border. The video clearly shows customs officials searching the truck long before the search warrant was issued, a point specifically denied by customs officers when they testified.
Obama has talked to the Mexican president on the phone, but never mentions that the Mexican government continues to incarcerate a Marine veteran.
And, from The Kelly File, Megyn Kelly responds to comments by Bill Ayers, an American terrorist who got away with violent acts against law enforcement and judicial members, and is now (and has been for some time) a professor at a Chicago university – a close friend to BH Obama back in the days of political campaigning. Association DOES count in determining the character and background of a political candidate …
If We the People will endeavor to clean out Congress, especially the Senate and replace them with constitutional politicians – we might be able to impeach Obama and cohorts before 2016. Congress members fear impeachment because of political alliance and the idea that Joe Biden would become President if Obama is successfully impeached.
As the State Department bimbo thinks and portrays the attitude of the Obama administration – they can use whatever definition of transparency they decide to use …
Our federal government has become a major embarrassment and ignores the real issues that require true and diligent reformation.
