President Trump’s V.A. and his promise to Veterans

@POTUS , ‏, @realDonaldTrump ‏, @SecShulkin ‏ @DeptVetAffairs

Dear President Trump and Secretary Shulkin, 

As a United States Marine Corps, Vietnam era veteran, that served our country ‘honorably’ and was discharged with a ‘service-connected’ injury; I believe I have a unique perspective on the V.A. I have to write you to tell you just how dysfunctional your Veterans Administration hospital is.

I would have been on the phone to your ‘promised’ hot-line, but sadly with all of the battles you have been dealing with on other levels, it appears that you have not had time to deal with this issue.

Trump’s promised hotline for veterans remains unfilled

 

During the Vietnam campaign, the Marine Corps trained the women as they trained the men. I believe this is why there was such a high rate of attrition, as there were only 2,700 women Marines that served during the peak of Vietnam. We are truly thefewer and prouder’!

The Marines slogan during Vietnam was Join the Marine Corps and become a man … During boot camp, my bunkies and I would joke that the Marines were trying to turn us into men! Believe me sir, it was tough! But for some of us, our love of country was even stronger! I was never so proud as the day that my ‘eagle, globe and anchor’ were pinned to me. And to this day, that same ‘eagle, globe and anchor’ is tattooed to my heart. The sayingonce a Marine, always a Marine” is very true! It is literally drilled into us!

Because of the rigorous training it took a physical toll on my body, particularly my knees. To my dismay, I was only able to last one year and one month in the Marine Corps, as that is as long as my knee would hold out. I was medically discharged, under honorable conditions, and had to say goodbye to my beloved Corps.  While my ‘Oath of Service’ lives on in my heart, sadly, my Marine Corps injury, as well, lives on.

My first job out of the Corps was lost due to my knee injury. It has been a problem that has plagued me all of my life.  I have now had to take an early retirement, because that injury still persists. However, if I had to do it again, I would! As I know it was women Marines like me and those that graduated with me that morning, on the sunny parade deck of Parris Island, that blazed the trail for the 12,000> current woman Marines.

Because of losing my first job, due to my knee, I filed for my military disability. Rather than honoring my claim, the V.A. put me in a full leg cast for six months to stabilize my knee. That worked for some time, but did not heal the injury. I went about my life and tried to work around it. Now that I have had to take an early retirement because of it and because of your campaign promises that were made to veterans, I refilled the day after the presidential inauguration.

A Test of President Trump’s New Veteran Administration

Mr. President, let me tell you my experience so far …   Yikes!

Approximately three weeks ago, I received a letter from John Pershing V.A. I presumed the letter was about my ‘disability claim’ but when I discovered the real reason I was not only astonished, but am now very gravely concerned.

In 2009 I had a procedure done at the John Cochran V.A. Apparently they ran some blood work during that time. It appears that I had contracted Hepatitis C. I was being contacted by another V.A. EIGHT years later that I had , potentially, a deadly virus! I was astounded! In ‘private industry’ I believe this would be considered ‘malpractice’ for not disclosing this information in a timely manner.

This last week I had my appointment at John Pershing, V.A.

FYI, Mr. President, I had read that some of the V.A.s where not posting your photo, so I searched for it and found you in a position of prominence ,as was V.A. Secretary Shulkin. But let me state Mr. President, clearly you and V.A. Secretary Shulkin have your work cut out! 

I was on time for my appointment and had my labs done, only to wait for almost two hours on my physician.  When I was finally seen I was not in the best of mood, as I make it a point to be on time and I believe that the V.A. should do that as well. It was explained to me, by one of the nurses, the ‘wait’ is due to being short-staffed due to budget.  I believe the doctor understood my frustration, but was confused as to why I was there. I informed him that I was there to get an x-ray of my knee and to have a blood panel done for Hep C. He asked, who told you that you had Hep C? Well, of course it was the V.A.! He then directed his attention to his computer and started to ‘chuckle’ … stating that the lab had not run a test for Hep C, but rather they ran a test on my ‘prostate’ Mr. President, I do not believe that the Marine Corps succeeded into turning me into a man, I am pretty sure my daughter is good proof of that! The doctor then ordered the appropriate test and said he would call me, that day if it came back positive, and sent me on the way to have my knee x-rayed. I received no subsequent call.

Relieved, that I did not have a life-threatening virus, but yet cautious about the V.A. I decided the following day to call and verify. Sadly, Mr. President, they now state that it is positive and want me to get another test. 

I have since been researching Hepiitus C, as I have no clue how I could have contracted it. But my research has shown me that, it appears, that the Marine Corps keeps on giving …

WM Recruit getting inoculated with Jet Gun – Parris Island, SC

During my time in the service I was inoculated with what we termed the ‘cattle gun’ as it was a pneumatic ‘Jet Gun’. I remember very well standing in line and concerned that we were being inoculated as ‘cattle’ might be.  It was very painful and left many profusely bleeding, as it used air rather then needles. I personally never saw  the use of any type of sterilization between uses.

HCVets.com reports:

Of the total number of persons who were hepatitis C antibody positive, and reported an era of service, 62.7% were noted to be from the Vietnam. The second most frequent group is listed as post-Vietnam at 18.2%, followed by 4.8% Korean conflict, 4.3% post-Korean conflict, 4.2% from WWII, and 2.7% Persian Gulf era veterans. It wasn’t until 2012 the Department of Defense began to test recruits entering and exiting the service. The figures for the War on Terror lack accurate research and expected to exceed the stated claim.”

Mr. President, this clearly is an epidemic among Vietnam era veterans and it is killing them! The above website that I addressed: HCVets.com is a  website that specifically addresses this issue.  One of the administrator of the site, was like me, a USMC Vietnam veteran that was inoculated in Parris Island with the ‘cattle gun’. Sadly, Mr. President, he has now died due to this virus that he received from his military service.

“Military Marine Corps Veteran, Corporal Gary Lupole, 61,   co-founder of HCVets.com, Educational Website . passed away suddenly on Thursday, February 2, 2012. His death was caused by cardiac arrest related to terminal liver cancer due to the hepatitis C virus that he contracted during his military service.

The Vietnam war has never ended for Gary, or for many Veterans and Retired Military members with service incurred disabilities like HCV disease. Please tell a friend that 1 in 5 Vietnam Vets have HCV disease.”

While some enlisted to fight for ‘Old Glory’ and our Constitution because they believed in our country,  they did not sign up to contract a deadly virus because of incompetency! I am sure, President Trump, you will have to agree with me — This is unacceptable!

The Tilley Shuffle + Election Rigging = Corrupt Missouri Government!

This author had no idea that the government corruption in Southeast Missouri is tagged as the Tilley Shuffle, until today. It appears Missouri Governor Greitens is misusing his huge campaign contribution trove to purchase Cardinal tickets, the term then  became clear!

Messenger: Greitens takes dead aim at Capitol corruption, shoots blanks

“When it comes to taking dead aim at corruption in Jefferson City, Gov. Eric Greitens is shooting blanks.

We know this not because his proposed lobbyist gift ban is languishing in legislative no man’s land.

We know this not because he refuses to tell taxpayers how much big corporations potentially seeking favors each paid for his inaugural party or fund his many flights to Washington.

We know this because Greitens has embraced the Tilley Shuffle.”

One might think that Eric Greitens ran a modest campaign, by just a cursory search of the Missouri Ethics database.

But a deeper search tells a different story!

Sadly, this author learned about the “ruse” of the Tilley Shuffle on her own through her campaign running for office for State Representative of Missouri District 145.

I decided to run, not that I wanted to be a politician, but I knew there was something terribly wrong within our government. I believed it to be my ‘civic duty’ as well as I took an Oath of service, when I joined the U.S. Marine Corps.

Our Constitutions, both state and federal are being ignored. The Oaths of Office were being disregarded and laws were being crafted that are not only hard to understand but being named something that they are not! The deceit is real! Our elected are abusing their authority and oath!

While running for office I discovered the ‘election rigging’ that I believe was designed to put Hillary Clinton into office, but also our governor and various state positions and unconstitutional laws!

So what does the election rigging and the Tilley Shuffle‘ have to do with MO Senator Gary Romine and Rick Francis, one might ask?

Four years later, an ex-politician is still benefiting from his campaign fund

…”Missouri Growth’s first actual donation to a state representative came in September 2014. It gave $750 to Rep. Jeremy Lafaver, D-Kansas City. In October, the committee received $1,000 from another committee Tilley used to control as speaker, MO Leadership Committee, and $7,500 from a 501-c-4 nonprofit called Missourians for Low Energy Costs. That committee was the subject of previous Missouri Ethics Commission complaints accusing it of being a shill for Noranda.”

Gary Romine funds MO Leadership Committee AND then contributes seed money to other politicians.

Someone in MOGov needs to grow a pair and deal with this issue! As it is clear, there are no Ethics, nor honor in our MOLeg!

If it Wasn’t the Russians that Hacked the Election – Who was it?

The new Freedom Watch ‘information dump’ of the Montgomery files yesterday, gives us new information and a new perspective that:

  1. It wasn’t the Russians that ‘hacked’ the elections.
  2. Proves FBI Director Comey lied under oath to Congress.
  3. Proves former DIA Director James Clapper and former CIA director John Brennan lied under oath to Congress.
  4. Denise Montgomery has most of the information necessary to “drain the swamp”.
  5. Shows us Donald J. Trump and his team were under surveillance much before and after the election.
  6. Shows us that there is a mass surveillance program that is spying on Americans!
  7. He also states that “spy agencies had manipulated voting in Florida during the 2008 presidential election, where illegal tampering resulted in helping Obama to win the White House.”

I proffer this information.

  1. The Montgomery Letter to the Honorable Devin Nunes: LINK to FreedomwatchUSA.
  2. Chairman Devin Nunes recognizes the new information in his statement:

  1. Mongomery has most of the information necessary to “Drain the Swamp”.

4. It proves that Mongomery has a plethora of information, that Director Comey was advised of, and that in America we have a “Orwellian Big Brother” that spies on Americans!

Let that sink in!

Fast forward to 2016. For various reasons including, but not limited to, the murder of LaVoy Finicum, this former U.S. Marine, knew that there was something terribly wrong with our nation. I figured that either our state legislature was ignorant of our constitutions, both state and federal, or it was more nefarious and they were actually ignoring or suspending them! That would make them in violation of their oath of office! This to me is not only unacceptable, but it is an abomination for what our county stands for and all the blood that has been shed for that sacred oath! I believe that oath is a commitment to God, constitution and country! It has no expiration date!

So I decided to try to get to the ‘root of the problem’ as I am a Granny and in no way can we hand this country, in this condition, over to our grandchildren! I threw my hat in the ring for a position as state representative for my district.

I won’t go into all the ‘dirty rotten’ details of my campaign, but if one has been following my website, they will see the debauchery of it all. However, what I want to focus on is the hacking of the election. No, it was not the Russians! I am sick of that false narrative, it is clearly only meant to distract!

Because I ran a fairly intense Social Media campaign, I could not often keep up with the posts, so I would simply Google my name to see if there was anything I needed to address. Here is the true election rigging!

WOW – Donald J. Trump and I have ALREADY LOST this ELECTION in Missouri!

No one has YET to address this rigging, with the exception of Alex Jones Info Wars in the below video, but I find issues with their explanation, as well as the fact of potential involvement.

At the 1:22 mark Info Wars points to SHTF.com as ‘breaking the story’ however they do not explain how they learned of the site that proves the voter tampering! They even go so far as to state that the page that they are accessing is for “non-public” results. As well they state that the page has been reset … Nothing to see here folks, move along

There are many problems with this story.

  1. I informed Alex Jones – Info Wars and several of his reporters, when I discovered the link, PRIOR, to Info Wars publishing the above video!

2. The original link was NOT reset. It was removed two days prior to the election.

TWO DAYS Before ELECTION | LIVE ELECTION RESULTS

3. They state that these were test pages for election reporting. I and other programmers have yet to see a program ‘call’ in the .html code! This leads me to believe that these ‘election results’ were manually coded, with someone that had a vested interest in Clinton winning MO and IL! The original code can be seen HERE via the Internet archive Way Back Machine.

4. To go to this length to cover up my original tip to Info Wars, I believe, that would involve collusion with the people that were actually involved in the ‘election results’ rigging, as they would have to have access to the worldcom.com domain to create the false link and narrative!

It is past time to Make America Great Again and DRAIN THE SWAMP!
