This is the Appalling Response our Veterans get when they call VA’s Suicide Hotline

Published

on

From Mad World:

It’s not really news when the Department of Veteran Affairs screws up anymore, but this time, they are not even trying to help. The socialized medical and psychological treatment that the veterans here in the United States receive is appalling at best. A new documentary is now shedding light on the government’s treatment of our soldiers, and it’s focusing on suicide.

The new film seeks to explore the suicide rate of American veterans, which statistically is 22 per day, almost one per hour.  The documentary seeks to shed some light on the VA’s shortcomings, of which there are many. The Oscar-winning HBO film Crisis Hotline has revealed some appalling practices at the VA that could have dangerous consequences for our nation’s heroes. Veterans are left in worse shape after they call the suicide hotline, of all things.

When veterans call the suicide hotline, many are sent straight to voicemail. Pete Hegseth, who has been investigating the agency’s  practices over the last few years, discussed the issue on Fox and Friends.

“If you’re a veteran who is suicidal, and you’re calling a hotline, and you’re getting a voicemail … How much does that increase the chances of you harming yourself, or taking your own life?” he said. Hegseth said no one should blame the operators, who are “wonderful people, trying to do the best they can. It’s the bureaucracy that, on top of all of this, is incapable of delivering quality service,” he explained. “Just the thought of a veteran who’s suicidal getting a voicemail – this is a powerful depiction of what a lot of vets face.”

Hegseth places the blame for the lack of oversight on the bloated bureaucracy and increased government stranglehold on the healthcare industry, especially in the VA. It seems that each time a new problem arises in the VA, the solution is to add more red tape and more government nonsense, which has solved nothing.

Socialized medicine is nothing but bureaucratic mazes and paperwork. It’s obvious that the government can’t even manage the healthcare of the nation’s military families and something as simple as a manned suicide hotline. There is no way that same government will be able to provide a socialized medical system to almost 319 million Americans. Socialized control of a resource is never the best option, and sadly, our vets were the guinea pigs in this experiment.

This Is The Video Of The Maverick Navy Pilot Drawing a Penis In Sky – He Said It Was A Hard Task

Published

on

We now have a video of the Navy Pilot drawing a penis in the sky!

The FAA confirmed that some pilots at NAS Whidbey did some skywriting in poor taste last week. But an FAA official said there’s nothing they can do about this stunt because they “cannot police morality.” However, officials from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island admitted that one of their aircraft was used, and issued a statement to apologize. Claiming they just didn’t see it coming and added that the US Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and that they find this stunt absolutely unacceptable and of zero training value. They added that they are in the process of holding the crew accountable and that disciplinary steps will be taken as soon as they get to the bottom of this incident.

Last week when this happened several residents in Okanogan County took photos of an “artwork” done by a Navy Pilot and posted them on social media. One mother of two even went as far as calling the local news to complain and saying that she was upset she might have to explain to her young children what the drawings were. I doubt you have much to worry about since your kids probably already know more than even you claim to know.

OMG, People, it’s time to lighten up. No crime no foul. If any mother has a hard time explaining this to their children it’s because they are failing as a parent. And it’s nothing worse than what the far left machine is teaching kids in the classroom about sex while they indoctrinate the new generation to be a bunch of brain dead left wing zombies that would make “Uncle Marx” and any “Bernie Bro” beam with pride.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS RUINING U.S. KIDS WITH ‘INDOCTRINATION’

Americans warned, ‘Get off of Facebook, turn off the TV, and educate yourself’

Public education in America today is almost the opposite of education, according to an education expert who calls the nation’s schooling “indoctrination.”

“This isn’t some kind of huge national accident that all these legions of Ph.D experts and all these legions of committees and the U.S. Department of Education – it’s not that they’re just incompetent fools and don’t know what they’re doing,” said international journalist and educator Alex Newman. “They want the system to be doing what it’s doing, and that is destroying real education.”

Real education, according to Newman, means developing knowledgeable, well-rounded Americans who can think critically, process information, make good decisions, support themselves and serve the needs of society.

In other words, real education produces productive members of a capitalist society.

“That’s what you do in a free market,” Newman said. “If you want to profit, you have to serve your fellow man. If you want to have a business, you have to make sure you’re selling a product that they’re willing to purchase at a price that they’re willing to purchase.

“So that’s what an education is, is to create an individual who can take care of themselves, who understands the Scripture, who understands history, who understands science, who understands, obviously, reading and writing and basic mathematics at the very least,” he said.

Newman made these comments during a recent appearance on “The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show.”

Jesse Lee Peterson, host of the show and a wildly popular WND columnist, already knew something was wrong with the American education system.

“One of the reasons I started my private school, BOND Leadership Academy, for boys and girls grades 1 through 12, was because I noticed that these boys and girls are not being educated – especially the boys. They’re coming out dumbed down rather than educated,” said Peterson, author of “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America.”

According to Newman, government schools are no longer teaching the components of a real education.

In Newman’s book “Crimes of the Educators,” co-authored with the late Samuel Blumenfeld, Newman condemned the “whole-word method” of teaching children to read. In this method, kids are taught to memorize words as if they were pictures, rather than sounding out the word based on the letters that form it. Newman calls it a “quack method” of teaching reading.

Newman also wrote in his book about how progressives have scrubbed the public schools of God and religion. He writes that they have rewritten American history textbooks to downplay patriotism and prepare children to be global citizens. They have confused children by focusing on mathematics to the exclusion of basic arithmetic, which people need to use in their daily lives, he says.

“Crimes of the Educators” reveals how the architects of America’s public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population

In the author’s estimation, it all adds up to indoctrination.

“We need to draw a clear, defining line between education, which enables people to know how to think, versus what the government is doing today, which is indoctrination, training people what to think rather than how to think and how to process information and how to have critical thinking ability,” Newman explained.

The public education system is too far gone to be saved, Newman argues, largely because progressive educators such as John Dewey designed it specifically to dumb down and indoctrinate children. Therefore, he says modern education reformers need to start over if they wish to save the system.

“If we’re going to have government-provided education, we really need to start from the very beginning, from the very foundation and build on a new foundation that’s based on proper reading, proper writing and real knowledge – not indoctrination,” he said. “And for that to happen, we’ve got to start from scratch and we’ve got to build from there, because the system, I think, is too far gone, it’s too corrupt to be salvaged.”

It’s possible for publicly educated children and adults to overcome the indoctrination, Newman asserted, but it’s very difficult.

“If you subject yourself to a government school or you subject your children to a government school, you’re automatically starting with a huge handicap because a government school is scientifically designed to dumb you down,” he said. “And it is possible to bypass that, but it takes very, very hard work.”

Those wishing to overcome the dumbing-down process need someone who can teach them to read properly, according to Newman. Once they can read well, they can acquire knowledge and truth independently and receive a real education.

“You’re not going to get the truth out of the government schools any more than you’re going to get the truth from the far-left media,” Newman warned.

He offered further advice for adults wishing to educate themselves: Read books.

“They hide all the secrets in the books,” he quipped. “Get books. Make sure you have a big library stocked with information on everything you need to know: history, economics, politics, culture, science – we all need to be well-rounded people, and if we’re going to educate others, we need to be educated ourselves.

“So there’s a lot of great sources out there, but I really recommend people just need to expand their libraries, get off of Facebook, turn off the TV, and educate yourself with books the old-fashioned way. I think there’s really no shortcut.”

Lowes Just Shocked Every Military Family In America With New Rule Effective NOW In ALL Stores

Published

on

Major retailers around the nation have become battle grounds for political correctness, using their businesses as soap boxes to make social statements. In a time when online business has disrupted the retail market and big box stores are diminishing by the dozen, it doesn’t seem wise to polarize your customer base with a divisive stance – as Target seems to have learned the hard way.

However, Lowe’s is not one of these stores and simply stays true to their core values and the American people.

We saw this from the major home improvement retailer a couple of months ago when they went against the trend of catering to Islam with what they pulled from their stores. Now, we’re seeing it again in an even bigger way that proves there is a positive way to make a statement and it’s left military families in America in total shock.

What many American businesses, sports figures, and celebrities get routinely wrong is that they make political statements in vain to say they are against division, when they are really being an anti-American and perpetuating the problem. This often includes using their platform to publicly trash our president.

Lowes knows that while they may offend “some” people, they are promoting something better with their patriotism that we as a country can and should all get behind.

In this recent move, they are showing their appreciation in a big way for the men and women who fight for our freedom and right to make any social statement we want, with what’s coming to all their stores across the nation for military families.

Conservative Post reports:

Lowe’s is an American company that has made it known in the past that they are proud to be a part of this great nation. They have continually shown their support for our military, and now they have made an announcement that will help those in our military as well as their families. The company will be changing their military discount program in order to improve it for those defending our country.

They will be expanding the program to include more members of the military as well as their family members. I think we can all agree that those who put their lives aside to defend our freedom deserve everything they can possibly get.

This discount is more generous than most and goes beyond just brick and mortar stores. All military members and their families will be able to use it online and will receive free shipping as well.

“The discount is linked to a MyLowes account, which can be shared by a household. Once the service member signs up for the discount program, it will be linked to a MyLowes card that can also be used by their spouse,” Lowe’s spokeswoman Megan Lewis explained.

Even more impressive, is that Lowe’s isn’t going to make the process complicated to get the discount as is often the case with having to constantly show identification.

“Lowe’s has explained that they will not be asking for proof of ID anymore because they feel that it makes the process more complicated for the military members. This program change should help both military members and their families all over the country,” Conservative Post reported.

“We are proud to have a company like Lowe’s looking out for our military members. After all, they put their lives on the line for all of us. The least we can do is get them some good discounts and make their lives a little easier.”

To those who don’t value the sacrifice of our service members or recognize that these heroes are the backbone of our country, they probably think this is somehow unfair. They are probably also the same disgruntled people who took their business elsewhere after Lowe’s proudly pulled their ads from appearing in the commercial spots during the All American Muslim show on the TLC network.

Lowe’s probably lost far fewer customers than they gained from that move and aren’t missing them. Business is booming for those who choose to respect our country and the values this nation was built on, which is how it should be. The same can’t be said for companies who continue to cater to the liberal agenda.

The country needs to see more of this and likely will within the next four years under President Donald Trump’s leadership. He constantly praises our military which is how it always should be.

American businesses should look at how Lowe’s treats our military members and follow their lead. It’s beyond time for this to be the trend as opposed to who can make a bigger anti-American social justice statement. Well done, Lowe’s!

Since we know that the liberal media will not get this great message out, be sure to share it so that every proud American knows where to take their business!

Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier Guard Gets Stabbed – What He Did Next Is Going Viral

Wow!

Published

on

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is located in Arlington National Cemetary and it’s guarded by Tomb Sentinels 24/7. The Sentinels represent one of the most difficult positions for the military to earn. Being a Sentinel requires a level of perfection and dedication that most people struggle to achieve. They stand guard in every weather condition, situation, and anything you can imagine and they do it in the most perfectionist way you can imagine. Their post changes every half hour and comes complete with an inspection of the rifle exchanged between Tomb Sentinels. A recent exchange was almost marred by a slight situation in which one of the Sentinels was stabbed by the rifle’s bayonet. The reaction of the guard has gone wildly viral, being shared almost everywhere you can imagine.

It’s nearly impossible to become a Tomb Sentinel and it’s reported that only about 10% of those who apply gain the honor to guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. These soldiers are selected wisely from the 3rd U.S. Infantry which is also sometimes referred to as “The Old Guard.” These soldiers are so disciplined that you could walk by and think they were a statue crafted from perfection. But sometimes we learn that perfection is nearly impossible as there was an incident where a soldier was stabbed by the rifle, but what happened next is the part that went viral.

As two guards were performing the white glove inspection of the rifle, a rare moment of imperfection occurred. The rifle fell from the relieving soldier’s hand and the bayonet stabbed the other Sentinel right in the foot. The blade went through the military shoe and pierced his foot all the way through. As he stood there bleeding with a blade in his foot, the guard carried on his routine and regained his perfection. There wasn’t a flinch nor a reaction other than his utmost respected continuance of the daily tradition.

The incident was caught on video and I must say, this is certainly worth sharing.

What would you do if you had a rifle bayonet stab you in the foot? Would you scream? Not these guards. They didn’t show any reaction at all. Their ability to keep their composure during any situation is what presents them as the most elite guards you will ever see. A brief accidental moment of imperfection was met with an unwavering ability to regain the previously attained perfection. Anyone else would’ve been jumping around like they stepped on hot coals, but not these Sentinels. Just imagine for one moment the blade of a rifle traveling through your entire foot in slow motion, bleeding, cutting your muscles, severing a tendon, and you stand there without a reaction because you’re so perfect at your job.

Now imagine the guard when he went home. Do you think he was hopping around and laughing it off? It reminds me of the Monty Python skit where they’re slicing limbs off the Black Knight with a sword. He responds by saying “tis but a scratch” and “it’s just a flesh wound” and this is one of the funniest Python skits that people remember.

The Black Knight won’t give up, but he certainly isn’t perfect. The Tomb Sentinels have the ability to be resilient in every situation they’re presented with. Had there been a Tomb Sentinel in the Monty Python movie, then we may have had a different outcome!

London has their own guards called the Queen’s Guards and they’re responsible for guarding the Queen’s residences. These guards are a lot more outspoken and aggressive with their shoe tapping and pointing of rifles.

If you’re ever in London, then you’ll recognize the Queen’s Guards instantly upon seeing them. Or you might hear them in the distance. They have a different type of job in comparison to the Tomb Sentinels. The Sentinels are extremely disciplined in perfection. The Queen’s Guard’s will call people out.

There have been times where the Tomb Sentinel guards will call out the public tourists for being noisy. Here’s one such video where the Sentinel moves in sheer robotic perfection and reminds the crowd they must be silent at all times.

Imagine being the noisy person there? That would be embarrassing, right? I would be ashamed if I was the person requiring a call out like this.

Here’s a more in-depth look at what it takes to become a Sentinel. This video is courtesy of The Old Guard.

How many of us think we could do this?

I don’t think I could, which is why I respect these guards with the absolute most respect I could possibly give. This is the kind of discipline we need in American public schools. Perhaps teachers should show these videos to their unruly students and some of the parents who have no clue how to run a household.

The Old Guard continues to stand by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the most prestigious and perfect way possible, even if one of their guards is accidentally stabbed in the foot!
