The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has been under fire for years for their healthcare facilities and their failure to take proper care of vets, numerous veteran suicides and deaths, and the failure of corrupt VA employees to be removed from their position or not being fired. Adding to that was former VA secretary Robert McDonald having the nerve to say:
“To be clear, no VA medical facility is bad or failing.”
Can anybody say “fake news”?
Indeed, corruption has been rampant in VA hospitals for years. For example, in 2014, audio recordings from The Daily Caller revealed “VA employees in Los Angeles willfully destroyed patient medical records in order to eliminate their atrocious backlog.”
Well, all that’s changed now because there is a new sheriff in town and corrupt VA employees are already being fired.
It started with President Trump appointing Dr. David Shulkin as the new VA Secretary. Then, the day Trump was inaugurated, corrupt VA employees started being fired!
Dewayne Hamlin, director of the VA hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico, was fired on Jan. 20 only hours after Trump being sworn into office. Hamlin had offered employee Rosayma Lopez $305,000 to quit after she became a justified whistleblower on a fellow employee.
On Jan. 24, Elizabeth Rivera Rivera was fired:
For misconduct, including being absent without leave and failing to disclose other arrests on her job application, which her background check apparently did not catch.
These are perfect examples of those who do not belong at the VA. However, what about employees who should have never been hired in the first place?
Meet Braxton Linton, a manager whose job was to buy prosthetics such as hearing aids, usually with credit cards issued by the government. While working at the VA, he was arrested twice for possession of drugs. And later, he was accused of stealing money by improperly billing the government for personal expenses.
But before being hired by the VA, he had just been released from prison for stealing $70,000 from his previous employer. Rehabilitation was not in his DNA.
Now meet Jorge E. Diaz-Camacho who was hired by the VA in 2011. He made $35,000 but drove a luxury SUV. Yet he had a criminal record for possession of illegal firearms prior to his employment. He should have never been hired in the first place.
There are others who have had easily-found criminal records before being hired by the VA.
We can only hope that our new VA Secretary Dr. David Shulkin will clean up the VA, implement appropriate hiring practices, and thereby making all of us veterans feel better about our healthcare system.

Budweiser’s New NFL Ad Leaves Every Military Fam In America In Complete SHOCK With What It Shows
As one of the NFL’s biggest sponsors, Budweiser let it be known this week that they aren’t backing down to many Americans’ demands that they pull their support from the sport that allows protests to continue. Now, they have come out with a new commercial that is leaving every Military family in the country in complete shock.
The beer company offered a public statement that didn’t condone the National Anthem kneelers but also didn’t discredit them. They spoke of support for our military members who have and are defending our freedom but left a lot to be desired in making a real statement through assertive action.
Yahoo Finance compiled the responses of sponsors to the protest, most of which carried the disappointing theme that they considered the actions of players to be freedom of speech. The official report from Anheuser-Busch reads:
“On Monday night, a spokesperson for Anheuser-Busch InBev sent Yahoo Finance this statement, which appears to fall into the play-it-safe, neutral category along with Under Armour and Ford:
“At Anheuser-Busch, we have a long heritage of supporting the institutions and values that have made America so strong. That includes our armed forces and the national anthem as well as diversity, equality, and freedom of speech. We proudly employ over 1,100 military veterans and we work every day to create an inclusive environment for all of our employees. Because only together can we achieve our dream of bringing people together for a better world.”
While their politically correct statement seems to be playing it really safe on the issue, their commercial sends a very clear message that not everyone is going to appreciate. Perhaps Anheuser-Busch realized the fine line they were walking with who their customers are. True Americans who bleed red, white, and blue and are boycotting the NFL are the ones who drink their beer, not those who support these anti-patriotic protests.
The company’s recent commercial represents this, bringing the attention back to where it belongs — on the sacrifice of those who fight to defend our flag that entitled sports stars are kneeling before.
When you reach into the cooler this weekend and pop open a cold one while spending time with those you love, Budweiser hopes you think of them and drink one of their beers while not watching football. With that plan in mind, they created a special commercial to commemorate our nation’s independence and many Americans were floored at what they saw.
It’s been a year of beer debacles a major brewing company like Heineken going down the misguided path behind liberal coffee giant Starbucks in mixing politics with their products. Budweiser also decided to mix the two but in a much different way that left their customer base in awe and ensured that they are the staple beverage for beer drinkers at cookouts across the country.
Right Wing News reports:
If this doesn’t make you bleed red, white, and blue for the rest of the year, I don’t know what will. I mean, what’s more American than beer, Marines, Star Wars and helping veterans?
Star Wars star Adam Driver (better known as Kylo Ren) is a Marine veteran who has achieved his dream of becoming an actor. Now, he wants to give back, with the help of Budweiser’s “Folds Of Honor” program.
Budweiser created a docu-movie of sort in their moving ad that really tugs at the heartstrings of every country-loving patriot in the country. Driver is seen traveling across the country to meet up the real daughter of an actual wounded Army vet, John Williams, who had been severely injured during a training exercise. The hero’s daughter, Hayley Grace Williams, is currently studying to become a nurse and had written into the “Folds of Honor” program in hopes of getting a scholarship to help facilitate her dreams.
“Because of his injury, Williams was not able to go overseas and was medically discharged,” Right Wing News explains. “His daughter has been forced to work 40 hours a week to pay for her final year of school, which is going to cost $44,000. In her letter, Hayley explains that the weight she carries is so great that she may not be able to finish her final year of schooling.”
While Heineken preaches to red-blooded Americans about “open borders” on their bottles, Budweiser took the patriotic approach rather than using divisive political rhetoric to sell beer. The sales should speak for themselves in that Heineken lost a huge portion of their customer base and Budweiser reinstated they’re truly the “king of beers.”
Here is what the Heineken bottle reads:
Here’s To An Open World
To a world without borders or barriers. To the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. To find common ground to raise a bottle with the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend that you haven’t had a cold Heineken with yet.
Open Your World.
While Heineken thinks that what unites people is open borders, Budweiser understands that true red, white, and blue patriotism is what America really needs right now. That means doing more for those who fought and sacrificed for this country, than those who cross the border illegally. There are homeless, hurting veterans that need our attention and help before refugees and illegal immigrants. If liberals really cared about coming together and unifying people, their concern would be for those who defended their right to complain about “open borders.”
While we don’t get paid to promote any beer brand at Freedom Daily, you can bet that we’ll be buying a brew with real American values and not one with an agenda to push, like Heineken. We hope that everyone has a happy and safe Independence Day, drinks responsibly, and supports a brand that backs America and our heroes who fought for this country.
Obama Suffers Complete Meltdown Over What Veterans Just Gave Trump On Live TV
For the past 8 years, Obama made it no secret how much he hated our military. He hollowed out our military capabilities to pre-world war II capabilities, while making it virtually impossible for our soldiers to protect themselves on the battlefield with the outrageous changes he made to our military’s Rules of Engagement (ROE), resulting in the deaths of dozens of our warriors. To add insult to injury, Obama constantly treated our service members like crap, refusing to do simple things like return salutes to Marines assigned to his detail, where he reduced our Marines to his personal umbrella-holding servant boys. Obama also would go back on his campaign promise to “fix the VA,” where hundreds of our veterans would go on to die waiting for medical treatment from their war injuries.
With Trump in office, things have taken a drastic and wonderful turn for the better. President Trump’s love and appreciation for our military is constantly on full display with the genuinely nice way he treats any service member he comes into contact with. Whether it’s chasing down a Marine’s hat that’s blown off, taking time from his busy schedule to visit our wounded warriors, going to a fallen soldier’s funeral, or firing 800 corrupt VA officials who worked during the Obama Administration, Trump’s sincere care and compassion for Americans truly knows no bounds.
So not surprisingly, when President Trump had the opportunity to honor our veterans over Veteran’s Day, despite his busy 11-day Asia tour, he would drop everything to honor our Vietnam veterans with an incredible ceremony and a heartfelt speech. Trump took the stage to honor all of America’s veterans, where he was flanked by 7 elderly Vietnam Veterans. But one of the veterans did something completely unexpected after Trump’s remarks, that will probably have Hussein Obama completely furious.
Standing with Vietnam veterans behind him, Trump said:
“Our veterans are a national treasure, and I thank them all for their service, sacrifice, and patriotism.”
“To each of you with me today, you are the heroes who fulfill your duty to our nation. And each of you, under the most difficult conditions, did what you had to do, and you did it well.”
Unlike Obama who made every event on planet earth about him, President Trump then turned the microphone over to the seven Vietnam heroes behind them, giving them the opportunity to say whatever was on their minds. The third veteran to speak, who was wearing a Navy SEAL veteran hat, could only get a few words out before choking up and turning to Trump saying:
“Mr. President, from my heart, thank you for your support of the military, and it’s an honor to be here as one of seven Vietnam veterans representing the 58,000 heroes that never made it home. Thank you so much,” the veteran said.
Immediately overcome with his appreciation and emotion for a Commander-in-Chief who genuinely cares, unlike our previous president, the veteran then hugged Trump and began weeping. The touching moment begins around 3:55:
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve never seen any World War II or Vietnam Veteran ever hug Obama for anything he did for them. Obama had no issue stabbing our elderly veterans in the back, as we all remember the heartbreaking images of wheelchair-bound elderly veterans being turned away from visiting their World War II memorial after Obama decided to shut it down back in 2013 as part of his political ploy to make Republicans pay. Even the Park Police thought it was incredibly horrible what Obama did, and refused to follow Obama’s orders and not let the veterans into the memorial.
Here’s a recap of the disgusting way Obama treated our WWII veterans, via Stars and Stripes:
Wheelchair-bound elderly veterans pushed aside barricades to tour the World War II Memorial Tuesday morning, in defiance of the government shutdown which closed all of the memorials in the nation’s capital.
The four bus loads of veterans — visiting from Mississippi as part of a once-in-a-lifetime Honor Flight tour — ignored National Park Police instructions not to enter the site as lawmakers and tourists cheered them on.
“We didn’t come this far not to get in,” one veteran proclaimed.
The scene was both emotional and comical at once. After it was clear they had lost control of the situation, Park Police officials stood aside, telling press that they had “asked for guidance on how to respond” to the breach of security.
The memorial was closed because of the government shutdown that started 11 hours earlier, after lawmakers failed to pass a temporary budget plan to keep nonessential federal programs operating. Republicans and Democrats have been stalled in budget fight for weeks, mostly over legislative add-ons dealing with the new healthcare law.
It’s wonderful to see our veterans finally being treated well by a Commander-in-Chief who doesn’t exist for the sake of furthering the Islamic agenda. You know Obama’s got to be pretty mad right now after seeing how much our veterans LOVE President Trump!

Amazing! Yes, A Woman Has Received The U.S. Medal Of Honor
The more you know…
Meet Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, a woman with many titles: surgeon, abolitionist, suffragist, prohibitionist, prisoner of war, and the only woman to have received the U.S. Medal of Honor.
Born on November 26, 1832, Mary Walker was raised in a home where “thinking outside of the box” wasn’t commonplace: free thinking, questioning regulations and restrictions on women. Needless to say, this was certainly revolutionary for the times. For example, she kept her name after her marriage to fellow student, Albert Miller.
She was highly interested in medicine and pored over her father’s medical texts on anatomy and physiology as well as other medical litereature. She graduated with honors from Syracuse Medical College in New York at the age of 23 in 1855.
She was in private practice until the Civil War broke out in 1861. She wanted to join the army as a surgeon but wasn’t allowed to because she was a woman. Because of her credentials, she didn’t want to be a nurse, either. So she volunteered as an unpaid surgeon for a number of military hospitals and battlefields for the Union Army. She was the first female surgeon to do so.
On April 10, 1864, Walker was captured by Confederate troops, and arrested as a spy, just after she finished helping a Confederate doctor perform an amputation. However, she was exchanged for a Confederate surgeon just four months later.
After the war, she was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Andrew Johnson even though she was a civilian. But the medal was rescinded in 1917. As with her nature, she wore the medal until she died two years later.
In 1977, President Jimmy Carter restored her medal posthumously because she had gone into enemy territory to care for the suffering vicitms, when no man had the courage to do so, for they feared being captured and imprisoned.
The Citation for Medal of Honor:
“Whereas it appears from official reports that Dr. Mary E. Walker, a graduate of medicine, “has rendered valuable service to the Government, and her efforts have been earnest and untiring in a variety of ways,” and that she was assigned to duty and served as an assistant surgeon in charge of female prisoners at Louisville, Ky., upon the recommendation of Major-Generals Sherman and Thomas, and faithfully served as contract surgeon in the service of the United States, and has devoted herself with much patriotic zeal to the sick and wounded soldiers, both in the field and hospitals, to the detriment of her own health, and has also endured hardships as a prisoner of war four months in a Southern prison while acting as contract surgeon; and Whereas by reason of her not being a commissioned officer in the military service, a brevet or honorary rank cannot, under existing laws, be conferred upon her; and Whereas in the opinion of the President an honorable recognition of her services and sufferings should be made.
“It is ordered, That a testimonial thereof shall be hereby made and given to the said Dr. Mary E. Walker, and that the usual medal of honor for meritorious services be given her.”
So thank you, Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, for representing all women in this list of 3,497 Medal of Honor recipients!
