Convicted Military Traitor Granted Transgender Drugs By Army, Paid For By Taxpayers

Convicted Military Traitor Granted Transgender Drugs By Army, Paid For By Taxpayers

By 

Political correctness has yet again surfaced to bite the American taxpayer in the backside. According to recent reports, the government has approved taxpayer-funded hormone injections for American traitor Chelsea Manning (formerly Bradley Manning).

Manning was convicted in 2013 of sharing classified information with Wikileaks, which is a sort of journalistic organization aimed at governmental transparency. Being an intelligence analyst in the Army allowed Manning access to classified databases, which he later leaked for the world to see.

However, since the time of his incarceration, Manning has started down a road to alter his physical appearance in order to better represent that of his gender identity. According to Manning back in August of 2013 (via Breitbart):

“As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me. I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition.”

As one would imagine, not everyone is so keen on the idea that a traitor and current inmate feels justified to receive cosmetic procedures at virtually no cost to himself. Since he’s up for parole in 8 years, he can do it himself and foot the bill as well when he gets out. Unfortunately, the courts don’t have the same sentiment.

Manning actually sued the government last year in a temper tantrum like state, saying it was unfair that they denied him the opportunity to have the body he feels he’s entitled to. Rather than simply denying the absurd request, they’ve decided that the better route to take would be to oblige Manning.

Tranny Traitor Granted Right To Spend Taxpayer Dollars For RIDICULOUS Reason

As released in a memo acquired by USA Today, Col. Erica Nelson, the commandant of the Fort Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks in Kansas, wrote:

“After carefully considering the recommendation that (hormone treatment) is medically appropriate and necessary, and weighing all associated safety and security risks presented, I approve adding (hormone treatment) to Inmate Manning’s treatment plan.”

Since when do prisoners guilty of a crime have more rights than they need (i.e. shelter, food,necessary medical care)? If you want to work out your own feelings, feel free to do so – just not at the expense of the American taxpayer.

Didn’t we used to hang traitors?  I guess now we turn them into women! This man has been granted the right to live, and now he wants to take advantage of the American taxpayer.

The ‘Untold Story’ Of Chris Kyle’s Killer

The ‘Untold Story’ Of Chris Kyle’s Killer

“Primary sources.”

That’s what former Marines Daniel Racca and Spencer Walker at Warfighter News say the mainstream media is really missing during coverage of Eddie Ray Routh trial, “primary sources.”

Routh is currently on trial for the murders of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield at a gun range in February 2013, and, seeing as how he outright admitted to killing them, it would seem like an open and shut case.

But it’s rarely so simple.

The defense team for Routh is mounting a full-court press on the “paranoid psychosis” insanity plea, citing heavily his alleged post traumatic stress disorder stemming from service in Iraq and Haiti. In fact, his family began this press within just moments of hearing about their son’s murder of Kyle and Littlefield, calling police and 911 to determinedly inform authorities that he been diagnosed with traumatic stress.

If the claim doesn’t pass muster with the jury, he’s liable to be sentenced to life in prison without any chance of parole.

In a post on their site titled “Eddie Routh: The Untold Story,” Warfighter News details their comprehensive investigation involving interviews with three Marines who served directly with Routh, and several inconsistencies with the defense.

“We reached out to experts and did our own homework,” Spencer Walker, Board Chairman and CEO of Warfighter News, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “The defense is trying to claim Routh had PTSD, but our analysis shows that it’s extremely unlikely. According to Dr. C. Alan Hopewell, former Senior Neuropsychologist for the Department of the Army, Routh’s actions indicate paranoid schizophrenia. PTSD has been endlessly ripped out of its context. Our organization is essentially the only one looking at it from this angle.”

The Marines failed, Veterans Affairs (VA) failed, and his parents failed to look into Routh’s dark past and detect a dangerous pattern of drug abuse, deadly violence, and a misdiagnosis of PTSD, Walker said — adding that the choice of Routh’s defense attorneys to blame his actions on PTSD essentially implies that every veteran suffering from PTSD is dangerous and potentially a murderer.

“If they just looked at Routh’s history of violence and erratic behavior, they’d realize it’s impossible to classify his disorder as PTSD,” Walker said.

In their investigation, Warfighter researchers used the Marine Corps Combat Action Ribbon/Humanitarian Service Medal database.

“The database shows that he didn’t even have a combat action ribbon, which is not hard to get and would have been given out had Routh been anywhere near combat,” Daniel Racca, Chief Operating Officer of Warfighter News, told TheDCNF.

“Routh was never near any incoming. Where he was located on the camp, he was rather safe and cozy,” said Cpl. Ryker Pawloski, a Marine who served with Routh in Iraq in the 8th Combat Logistics Battalion.

Warfighter News notes the American Psychology’s recent conclusion that “[t]here is now accumulating evidence that suggests that post traumatic stress disorder [PTSD] is linked to combat experiences,” in a study about the effect of combat on special operations troops.

Racca and Walker, on the other hand, represent two generations of Marines and have both experienced combat action. According to Spencer, the VA is totally irresponsible when diagnosing PTSD, and in Routh’s case, missed out on an opportunity to prevent this entire disaster.

Actress Jane Fonda issued an apology late Friday for her infamous visit to North Vietnam in 1972, a moment that earned her the dubious nickname “Hanoi Jane.”

Fonda called it a “huge mistake” during a speech given at an arts center in Frederick, Maryland, the Associated Press reports. She made her comments in response to protests against her appearance.

“But those people out there… I’m a lightning rod,” Fonda told the audience, according to The Frederick News-Post. “This famous person goes and does something that looks like I’m against the troops, which wasn’t true, but it looked that way, and I’m a convenient target. So I understand.”

However, Fonda still considered her trip to the communist state at war with the U.S. a “great experience.” While on the trip, she took publicity shots manning an anti-aircraft gun used to shoot down American planes and publicly criticized the war effort against North Vietnam.

The protesters gathered outside the arts center, many of whom were Vietnam veterans, did not forget Fonda’s anti-war effort and carried signs that bore the phrase, “Forgive? Maybe. Forget? Never.”

“She encouraged North Vietnam to pull away from the negotiations table,” Bob Hartman, a Vietnam Army veteran, told The News-Post. “She got Americans killed… and she went to Vietnam to advance her husband’s career.”

Fonda focused most of her talk on gender politics and encouraged the crowd to not raise boys to become “emotionally illiterate” by emphasizing masculinity.

Fallen US Marine’s Father Returns Obama’s Condolence Letter!

Fallen US Marine’s Father Returns Obama’s Condolence Letter!

FALLEN MARINE’S FATHER TO OBAMA: I wonder how many of these get returned to you?

fallen soldier

Steve Hogan, father of fallen Marine Hunter D. Hogan received the condolence letter shown below from “Mr. Obama.”

Mr. Hogan wrote on the President’s letter and sent it back hoping that Mr. Obama would see it. We don’t know if he did, but hundreds of thousands of others have and we want to make sure hundreds of thousands more see it too. In the letter he rebuked the “Comm-in-chief” over the rules of engagement that have led to the unnecessary deaths of many of America’s servicemen.

This past week, the US commander of NATO declared the end of the mission against the Taliban in Afghanistan. Obama followed up with a statement declaring,

“Our combat mission in Afghanistan is ending and the longest war in American history is coming to a responsible conclusion.”

However, Mr. Hogan’s letter is a grim reminder of the feelings that permeate many of those currently serving our country in the armed forces. His letter to Obama begins:

“I wonder how many of these get returned to you!

“Mr. Barrack Hussein Obama,

I am deeply saddened that you are the President of the United States. You sir are an embarrassment to the Oval Office. My son, as well as most Marines I know, despise you and your lack of representation for our military. Your ridiculous rules of engagement have caused the massive amount of casualties on your watch in Afghanistan. While we watch your media pander to your administration and clearly sweep things under the rug for you. I fully understand Marines die. You have tied their hands & feet! I am thankful I did not serve under a Comm. in Chief such as you. I am sickened that my son had to. I wonder… I doubt that you will see this, I hope you do though!

Steve Hogan”

Navy Vet, Retired Cop Was Having Trouble Sleeping, NY Labels Him “Mental Defective,” Seizes His Guns

Navy Vet, Retired Cop Was Having Trouble Sleeping, NY Labels Him “Mental Defective,” Seizes His Guns

By

NY-SAFE-ACT

A Navy veteran and retired police detective was judged a “mental defective” and had his firearms seized after he went to the hospital for insomnia.

Donald Montgomery, who lives on Long Island, is suing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other state officials for violating his Constitutional Rights. Officials were operating under the state’s draconian “SAFE Act,” signed two years ago by Cuomo, which allows New York to confiscate weapons of anybody it deems mentally “defective.”

Montgomery – who had four handguns and a state handgun owners’ permit from New York – first went to his doctor back in May complaining of insomnia, resulting from a move to the state to be closer to his family.

A few days after the first visit and still unable to sleep, he went to the emergency room at a hospital in Long Island. He was diagnosed with depression and insomnia, given prescription medication and sent home.

Several days later, he returned to the hospital, still unable to sleep and voluntarily checked in for a 48 hours stay. The notes from his visits give no indication that Montgomery was “defective.” On the contrary, the notes read:

“Patient has no thoughts of hurting himself. Patient has no thoughts of hurting others. Patient is not having suicidal thoughts. Patient is not having homicidal thoughts,” the notes read.

A psychological assessment labeled him “mildly depressed,” but otherwise determined “there is no evidence of any psychotic processes, mania, or OCD symptoms.”

“Insight, judgment, and impulse control are good,” the assessment reads.

Somehow, though, the hospital listed him as having been “involuntarily” committed – and that’s where the state came in.

Four days after leaving the hospital, New York State police sent a letter to the Suffolk County clerk’s office stating “has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been involuntarily committed to a mental institution” and that he was prohibited from possessing any firearms.

The next day, Montgomery received a call from an officer at the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department informing him that his guns would have to be confiscated.

Montgomery says that on May 30, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department showed up to his house and confiscated his pistol license and four handguns — Colt .38 revolver, Derringer .38, Glock 26 9mm, Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380.

He is suing alleging violations of his Second, Fourth, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

Deputy Guns Down Decorated Army Vet After Responding To Medical Call

Deputy Guns Down Decorated Army Vet After Responding To Medical Call

A Utah sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a 28-year-old Army sergeant this weekend while responding to a medical emergency call.

by MIKAEL THALEN | INFOWARS.COM

According to Tooele County Sheriff Frank Park, police were called to Purple Heart recipient Nicholas McGehee’s home early Sunday morning after the Iraq war veteran cut his foot on a piece of broken glass.

“The information we had is that a gentleman had cut himself rather severely,” Park told Good4Utah News.
Shortly after a sheriff’s deputy and highway patrol officer arrived on scene, neighbors reported hearing a succession of gunshots.

“They were ‘boom, boom, boom, boom!’” neighbor Candice Pratt said. “I hurried and called 911, and she asked where we were. I gave her our address, and I said, ‘We just heard four shots.’”

Initial reports from investigators state that McGehee was holding a firearm inside his home when officers approached, causing them to assume that McGehee’s wife could be in some sort of danger.

After evacuating the woman from her home, police say McGehee himself walked out onto the front porch with gun in hand.

McGehee would be declared dead on the scene soon after.

“The deputy told him two or three times to put the gun down, the gentleman pointed the gun at the deputy, and at that time, the deputy turned fire, shooting the individual,” Park said. “He may have been intoxicated, but that’s still under investigation. We don’t know for sure.”

While the shooting may have been justified, neighbors who knew McGehee say the claim is shocking, asserting that he never once came off as troubled.

Police admitted that the deputy was wearing a body camera at the time of the incident but had not activated it prior to arriving on scene. With federal training teaching police to ludicrously anticipate IED attacks from veterans, questions remain as to why police responded to a medical call as opposed to paramedics.

The department has since placed the deputy on administrative leave for the duration of the investigation.

Robert McDonald: Cleaning up the VA

Robert McDonald: Cleaning up the VA

The Secretary of Veterans Affairs tells Scott Pelley about his personal mission to reorganize the troubled agency for his fellow vets

VA Robert McDonald

The following is a script of “Cleaning up the VA” which aired on Nov. 9, 2014. Scott Pelley is the correspondent. Guy Campanile, producer.

Tomorrow, the day before Veterans Day, the new head of Veterans Affairs will announce the biggest reorganization in the history of the VA, which comes after the agency’s biggest fiasco.

It was last spring that we learned that tens of thousands of vets were waiting months for medical care while managers cooked the books to hide the delays. The former secretary was forced out. Tonight we have the first interview with the new man in charge. Sixty-one-year-old Robert McDonald has no government or medical experience but he does know management.

He was chief executive officer of Procter & Gamble, the largest consumer products company in the world. And we wanted to know how a soap salesman will go about cleaning up the VA.

Scott Pelley: How many employees do you think should be fired based on what you know?

Secretary McDonald: The report we’ve passed up to the Senate Committee and House Committee, has about 35 names on it. I’ve got another report that has over 1,000.

Scott Pelley: If 1,000 people need to go, give me a sense of what are some of the things that they did?

Secretary McDonald: We’re simplistically talking about people who violated our values.

Scott Pelley: And those values are what?

Secretary McDonald: It’s integrity, it’s advocacy, it’s respect, it’s excellence. These are the things that we try to do for our veterans.

But Bob McDonald can’t punish or fire a thousand people right now. He’s discovering how different the Capitol is from capitalism. To fire a government manager he has to put together a case and prove it to an administrative judge.

“I could not guarantee their safety in the middle of metropolitan Phoenix in my ER because we didn’t have adequate staffing or training.”

Secretary McDonald: Scott, the reason this is, reason this is okay in some respects is that…

Scott Pelley: A lot of people think it’s not okay…

Secretary McDonald: Well…

Scott Pelley: …that if people lied and put veterans second…

Secretary McDonald: That’s different.

Scott Pelley: …and their self first, they should be cleared out.

Secretary McDonald: Absolutely. Absolutely. But we’ve got to make it stick.

Scott Pelley: How do you mean?

Secretary McDonald: So we propose the action, the judge rules and the individual has a time to appeal that’s why we have a lot of people on administrative leave. We’ve moved them out because we don’t want any harm to our veterans.

[Volunteer: Bob I’d like you to meet my district commander.]

He’s been on the job four months and in that time he’s been getting an education. McDonald has inspected 41 VA facilities. We caught up with him in Boston, where we discovered that he refuses to be called “Mr. Secretary.”

[Woman: It’s so good to meet you Mr. Secretary.]

[Secretary McDonald: I’m Bob. Please call me “Bob.”]

His Washington staff can’t get their heads around calling the boss by his first name so they’ve taken to calling him “Secretary Bob.”

[Secretary McDonald: So you were with Patton in North Africa?]

[Volunteer: No, he was with me.]

v-a-shadshakel.jpg


He’ll need that sense of humor because McDonald is battling a behemoth cobbled together over decades. The VA is the second largest agency in the entire federal government behind only the department of defense.

Secretary McDonald: We have no hope of taking care of veterans if we don’t take care of each other.

Veteran Arrested Again for Feeding Homeless Tells Authorities to Stick It

Veteran Arrested Again for Feeding Homeless Tells Authorities to Stick It

A Florida veteran, who was arrested for feeding the homeless, tapped into his defiant side and refused to cave on his principles. Unfortunately, he’s been arrested again.

Ninety-year-old Arnold Abbott has been serving hundreds of free meals to the homeless every week in Fort Lauderdale for the past 24 years. On Sunday, he was cited and arrested under a controversial new ordinance in the city that bans such activities, according toCounterCurrentNews.

Abbot’s first arrest spread like a virus across social media, sparking outrage at the outright stupidity of the new ordinance. Then, on Wednesday, the benevolent man was back at it again, feeding the homeless as he’s done for years, and wouldn’t you know it, he was arrested again.

Veteran Arrested For Feeding Homeless Tells Authorities To Stick It, Gets Arrested Again

The only kind gesture displayed by police occurred when they allowed him to finish feeding the people in line. But right after that they issued another citation, refusing to defy their orders.

The mayor of the city, Jack Seiler, told Local 10, “Mr. Abbott has decided that he doesn’t think these individuals should have to have any interaction with government, that they should be fed in the parks. We disagree.”

Led by his Christian faith, Abbott has a reason he thinks the mayor is so determined to restrict his charitable work.

“The city mayor and the commission are puppets of the mega-rich who live in Fort Lauderdale, and they want to get rid of the homeless,” he said. He also pointed out what he thinks will happen if the city is successful in stopping this group, Love Thy Neighbor.

“What the city is doing by cutting out feeding is very simple – they are forcing homeless people to go dumpster-diving all over again.”

The WWII veteran has received an outpouring of support from across the globe ever since his arrest, but that’s not why he’s continuing his fight.

“I love the city. I live here, it’s a beautiful place and I’d like to keep it beautiful, but you cannot sweep the homeless under a rug… There is no rug large enough for that.”

Each citation comes with up to a $500 penalty and two months in jail. However, Abbott isn’t deterred and said that he won’t be backing down any time soon.

“I’m awfully hard to intimidate,” he said.

While everybody wants to ensure that the homeless are properly cared for, this seems to be a bit much from city officials. After 24 years of charitable acts, it’s obvious he knows what he’s doing, and the city needs to get off his case.

Cross at Indiana veterans memorial targeted by atheist group

Cross at Indiana veterans memorial targeted by atheist group

FoxNews.com

A national atheist group reportedly wants a 14-inch white cross in a new veterans memorial statute to be removed from an Indiana state park.

The Indianapolis Star reports that The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter last month to Indiana Department of Natural Resources Director Cameron Clark claiming that a cross attached to an 8-foot-tall statute has no place in Whitewater Memorial State Park.

“No secular purpose, no matter how sincere, will detract from the overall message that the Latin cross stands for Christianity and the overall display promotes Christianity,” attorney Rebecca Markert wrote.

The cross sends a “message that the government only cares about the deaths of Christian soldiers,” she continued.

State officials are now deciding whether to allow the cross to stay. A message left with a DNR spokesman early Monday morning wasn’t immediately returned, the newspaper reports.

The white-painted cross is on the bottom of a wooden chainsaw-carved statute, complete with a bald eagle perched above lettering that reads: “All gave some; Some gave all.”

The park, dedicated in 1949 to World War II veterans from surrounding counties, is about 50 miles southeast of Indianapolis. The controversy gained steam earlier this summer when retired restaurateur Wendell Bias first complained to state officials, catching the attention of veterans and religious watchdogs alike.

Bias, an Army veteran, told The Indianapolis Star he doesn’t think the cross is appropriate.

“I just thought that a memorial to veterans in a veterans’ park didn’t need to be turned into a religious shrine,” he told the newspaper.
