“A 74-year-old U.S. Army veteran is facing jail time for hanging an American flag on the fence at a VA facility in Los Angeles. Bob Rosebrock, who served in the military from 1965-1967, protested the treatment of homeless veterans by hanging a six-inch American flag on the fence outside the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Affairs facility on Memorial Day. However, since he posted the flag without permission, he is facing a trial and six months in prison.” – Fox News Insider.
Considering how VA management feels about the American flag and anyone who displays it, making them anti-American, imagine how they feel about veterans who have defended America. No wonder health care is bad for veterans, when controlled by people who apparently hate them and embrace the “Please die quickly” health care plan.
My opinion: All anti-American employees of the federal government should at a minimum be fired immediately. I’d take it a step further. I’d charge some of them with treason. Most should be forced to give up their U.S. citizenship and then be deported – banned from America.
The same people have refused to accept Donald Trump is their President.
“When Republican congressman and Army veteran Brian Mast saw that a Florida VA hospital didn’t have photographs of President Trump and Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin hanging in the lobby, he took action. Mast and a group of local veterans brought portraits of Trump and Shulkin to the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center and demanded they be installed, and the whole thing was caught on camera. They were successful, but within hours management at the hospital took down the pictures. Their reason? They could not authenticate the photos and they have to follow protocol.” – Fox News Insider.
Excerpted from Daily Mail: ‘”Not my president” – What congressman claims VA hospital employee told him when he went to hang Trump’s portrait in empty area vacated by Obama’s…
- Rep. Brian Mast of Florida hung a portrait of Donald Trump in a VA hospital after getting complaints from vets that almost two months after the election, there was still no portrait.
- Mast hung a portrait of Trump and Secretary of Veteran’s Affairs David Schulkin.
- After he left, the portraits were removed.
- He says when he had complained about the delay, someone at the facility told him “He’s not my president.”
- The VA says it can’t hang photos without them being approved and authenticated as official.
UPDATE: at the time of this writing – 8:00am CT Thursday March 16 – Caving in to pressure from veterans and some news media coverage, the VA has ordered hospitals to hang Trump’s portrait.
It’s not just the VA. Notes from Legal Insurrection: “A standard practice in federal government offices and military sites is to have an official portrait of the President of the United States (sometimes paired with one of the Vice President). An early step in the process of transition was the removal of the Obama/Biden portraits from installations and institutions.” – “Federal employees battle over President Trump’s portrait.” – “In a way, this fight underscores the point made by Washington Free Beacon‘s Matthew Continetti, who asks, ‘Who Rules the United States?’ Continetti sees a struggle between the nation’s voters and its bureaucrats: …The last few weeks have confirmed that there are two systems of government in the United States. The first is the system of government outlined in the U.S. Constitution—its checks, its balances, its dispersion of power, its protection of individual rights. Donald Trump was elected to serve four years as the chief executive of this system. Whether you like it or not. The second system is comprised of those elements not expressly addressed by the Founders. This is the permanent government, the so-called administrative state of bureaucracies, agencies, quasi-public organizations, and regulatory bodies and commissions, of rule-writers and the byzantine network of administrative law courts. This is the government of unelected judges with lifetime appointments who, far from comprising the “least dangerous branch,” now presume to think they know more about America’s national security interests than the man elected as commander in chief. For some time, especially during Democratic presidencies, the second system of government was able to live with the first one. But that time has ended. My suggestion is that if you have ever been in a federal office or other government location that previously showcased the official portraits of President Obama, check to determine if President Trump’s photos are now hanging there instead. If not, you know you’re probably in an office in which the employees believe they rule you rather than the other way around.”
Obama Administration leftovers continue to undermine the Trump Administration. They all need to be fired.
