War Wounds Are Not The Stuff Of Mickey And Minnie

May 26, 2016 by


By Dr. Robin McFee ~ Comparing the disastrous, dysfunctional and damaged Veterans Administration (VA) to Disneyland only makes sense in Fantasyland.  Such was a key component of the message conveyed by, and that apparently was important to the latest Secretary of the VA – Bob McDonald. He was speaking at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast […]

Veterans Continue To Suffer Under Obama Administration’s Care

April 27, 2016 by


By Roger Aronoff ~ While the Veterans Administration scandal lingers over multiple years, the mainstream media continue to perpetuate the fiction of a “scandal-free” Obama administration. Reporters are loath to report anything that might reflect badly on President Obama’s reputation and legacy. Excluding the Christian Science Monitor and USA Today, there has been a virtual mainstream media […]

Why The Veterans Administration Death Toll Will Keep On Rising

September 18, 2015 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ Robert McDonald, head of the Veterans Administration, claims he’s making “great progress” delivering health care to vets and turning around the agency’s mismanagement and corruption. Don’t believe him. Right now, more than 35,000 combat vets who are automatically eligible for VA care are stuck on hold because the enrollment process […]

Veterans Affair Crises Getting Lost In Scandal Overload

June 16, 2014 by


By Roger Aronoff ~ President Obama is embroiled in two Veterans Affairs scandals: 1) fabricated documents and secret waiting lists for health care, with dozens of veterans dying while waiting for appointments; and 2) waiting lists for disability benefits. The former is now the subject of a criminal investigation  opened by the Phoenix office of […]

Inept, Malicious VA Staffers Are Awash In Bonuses

June 4, 2014 by


By Deroy Murdock ~ The painful abuse, toxic neglect, and likely criminal misconduct at VA hospitals grew more outrageous on Wednesday evening. Members of the House Veterans Affairs Committee learned that 42 VA facilities now are under investigation for ignoring and mistreating their patients, sometimes fatally. Amazingly, VA personnel have been paid extra despite such […]

The Community Organizer Commander

May 29, 2014 by


By Tom McLaughlin ~ Soldiers and veterans interest me because I’ve never been one, and because many are regular readers of this column. When they allow it, I like to pick their brains. They’ve had experiences I’ve never had and never will have. I almost joined up after high school, but didn’t, and I’ve often […]

VA Hospitals Are Now Crime Scenes

May 27, 2014 by


By Deroy Murdock ~ At this writing, the Veterans Administration scandal has engulfed 16 states and 26 hospitals. In Atlanta, widespread mismanagement caused the preventable deaths of at least three veterans. In Columbia, S.C., six vets died because of delayed colorectal-cancer screenings. And in Phoenix, some severely ill vets urinated blood and endured searing pain […]

How America Treats Illegal Aliens Versus Veterans

May 24, 2014 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ A government that fails to secure its borders is guilty of dereliction of duty. A government that fails to care for our men and women on the front lines is guilty of malpractice. A government that puts the needs of illegal aliens above U.S. veterans for political gain should be prosecuted […]

Obamacare Will Kill Far More Than The VA Scandal

May 21, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The news that some forty veterans died while waiting to receive care from a Phoenix Veterans Affairs hospital—care that was denied because of bureaucratic chicanery—will seem small in comparison to the numbers of Americans who will die from the implications of Obamacare. At this point, some nineteen VA hospitals are under […]

Give Veterans The Care They Earned

May 19, 2014 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ Leave it to President Obama and Democrats in Congress to enact “comprehensive” health reform and overlook the plight of 8.5 million veterans. That’s what they did in 2010 when they passed ObamaCare. It provides coverage for convicts and even for newcomers to this country with no waiting period, but it […]

‘If You Have A Choice Between Going To A Dumpster Or To A VA Hospital, Head For The Dumpster Every Time’

May 18, 2014 by


By Colonel Kenneth Allard (U.S. Army, Ret) ~ Brutally honest and politically incorrect, this unofficial advice was given just before I retired from the US Army. My 30-year career was challenging but consisted mostly of garrison assignments typical of the Cold War. My retirement health challenges were smoothly handled by Tricare, the public-private health-care partnership […]
