President Donald Trump who is committed to improving conditions for veterans has now announced a new “Veterans Complaint Hotline.”
All through the campaign then candidate Trump made it a priority to state that his administration.Trump floats ‘White House hotline’ for vets. He said he would instruct his staff that if a valid complaint is not addressed that the issue be brought directly to him and that he would get on the phone himself and fix it. This idea was among 10 steps President Trump said he would take to respond to long wait times and poor service at the Department of Veterans Affairs. He also went on to say that the VA was not sacred, but that the Veteran was.
Via Washington Examiner:
White House officials will “soft-launch” a veterans’ complaint hotline this week in preparation to fulfill one of President Trump’s campaign promises by August, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin said on Wednesday.
The details of the hotline’s debut are “being worked out tomorrow,” Shulkin told reporters during a rare appearance at the White House. The phone line will allow veterans to call in their complaints and concerns about conditions at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Trump included a direct line to the White House for veterans in a 10-point plan for VA reform that he rolled out during the presidential race. His focus on a functional hotline came after months of controversy involving the flawed veterans’ suicide hotline, which VA has failed to staff and maintain adequately.
The specific details of the hotline are being worked out tomorrow. But from the looks of it, it seems like it will be a powerful tool in helping Veterans get the much-needed help that the past administration of Barack Hussein Obama failed to provide. To the point that Veterans were actually dying while waiting to get medical care.
Anyone who believes single-payer healthcare system is the solution, let them visit the VA.
The VA Accountability Act of 2017
We’ve all heard stories about employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) who fail in their duty to serve veterans. While the vast majority of VA employees are hard-working and dedicated, because VA often fails to hold individuals who are not fulfilling their duties accountable for their actions, these bad actors taint the reputation of the department as a whole. In instances where VA has tried to take disciplinary action against an employee, the process is so administratively complex and lengthy that such action can take more than a year, often times being delayed indefinitely.
A recent study completed by the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that, on average, it takes six months to a year, to remove a permanent civil servant in the Federal Government, though it often takes longer. Just last year, former VA Deputy Secretary Sloan Gibson testified at a hearing that it was too hard to fire bad employees at VA.
In the past several years, VA’s arcane civil service rules have hampered the department’s ability to dismiss an employee that engaged in an armed robbery; discipline a VA nurse that participated in a veteran’s surgery while intoxicated; and hold employees accountable for the continued failures to manage several major construction projects, including the new hospital in Aurora, Colorado, that is now several years and a billion dollars over budget
The VA Accountability First Act of 2017 would provide the VA Secretary increased flexibility to remove, demote, or suspend any VA employee, including Senior Executive Service employees, for performance or misconduct. It would also provide improved protections for whistleblowers; would allow the Secretary to reduce an employee’s federal pension if they are convicted of a felony that influenced their job at VA; recoup a bonus provided to an employee who engaged in misconduct or poor performance prior to receiving the bonus; and would allow the Secretary to recoup any relocation expenses that were authorized for a VA employee only through the employee’s ill-gotten means, such as fraud waste or malfeasance.
America’s veterans deserve the highest quality medical care and most efficient delivery of benefits possible.
The vast majority of employees at VA are honest and hardworking, and it’s unfair to the good employees when VA refuses to or cannot hold bad actors accountable.
This bill will ensure these bad actors are accountable while improving and keeping intact important whistleblower protections.
And this reason here is why so many of us voted for President Trump in 2016. All the left calls sacred are illegals who will vote for them in the future. To them, all of us real American Citizens are all second class citizens. Vets are third class since most on the left, such as that sexual predator former President Bill Clinton, “Loathed” the military and everything they stand for.
It is our duty as citizens to look after our vets. Especially those who are just now coming back from the War on Terror. They are the best our great country has to offer, and they deserve the best we can give them. Thank You, President Trump!
If you want our Vets to get the best medical care available please share….

BREAKING: Military On HIGH ALERT After Who Was Spotted Off On Florida’s Coast! It’s WAR!
THEY DIDN’T LISTEN!
After months of threats of America entering into World War III following repeat tests and provocations of war by North Korea’s despot dictator, Kim Jong-un, a horrifying discovery was just found right off Florida’s coast. For the second time this year, we’re seeing something that hasn’t happened since the Cold War, the first being Hawaii preparing for an attack, and now things have definitely gotten worse.
Ever since President Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at Syria almost a year ago, tensions have been on the rise between the United States, North Korea, and Russia. Now one of these countries appears to be planning an attack on our soil after a national security alert was sparked. The Daily Mail reports that military personnel are now on high alert after multiple spy ships were spotted off Florida’s coast. Top officials are extremely concerned that this foreign vessel belongs to the Russians.
Fox News reports:
The Russian spy ship first spotted near American waters last year is making its way back in the direction of the U.S., Fox News confirmed on Thursday.
The Victor Leonov is still in the Caribbean, according to officials, but heading north off the coast of Florida, home to a U.S. Navy base located in North Florida, east of Jacksonville.
The ship could be off the Florida coast by Friday if the ship maintains present course and speed, according to officials.
There is also a ballistic missile submarine base located in southern Georgia known as Kings Bay, which is another likely destination for the spy ship to loiter and watch U.S. “boomers” — as the ballistic missile subs are called — enter and leave port.
The Washington Free Beacon was the first to report on this story.
Fox News previously reported that last year, during a White House press conference, President Donald Trump weighed in on the story first reported by Fox News.
“Hey, the greatest thing I could do is shoot that ship that’s 30 miles offshore right out of the water,” Trump said. “Everyone in this country is going to say, ‘Oh, it’s so great.’ That’s not great. That’s not great. I would love to be able to get along with Russia.”
Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said in a tweet the day before Trump’s comments in February 2017 that Russia was trying to “expand influence.”
“Russia is acting like it has a permission slip to expand influence, test limits of reach.,” Murphy wrote. “Questions are obvious: does it, and if so, why?”
Putin has been taunting the idea of threatening world peace instead of helping it, as the tensions rise with North Korea and he competes for power and negative attention with Kim Jong-un. This moves also comes on the heels of major action being taken again uncooperative nations at the United Nations.
President Donald Trump has given one of the best Christmas gifts the American People have ever gotten, and once again kept another one of his many promises. On Christmas Eve, the US ambassador to the United Nations, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley announced that President Trump has given the order to cut its 2018 contribution to the United Nations by $285 million, that’s a cut of nearly 25 percent and a great start in the plan to fully defund the Anti-Semitic and Anti-American United Nations.
The Washington Free Beacon explains why this is of specific concern to our military:
Norfolk is the location of the Navy’s major East Coast naval base and New London is also a major submarine base near Groton.
A second official said the AGI ship, for auxiliary, general intelligence, is being tracked by the Navy and appears similar to previous Russian operations in this region.
“What makes it noteworthy is the increase of Russian naval activity worldwide,” this official said. “It makes us pay close attention, not to the tactics, but to how this fits into overall Russian naval behavior.”
The Leonov deployment also is another example of Russia’s increase maritime competition with the United States, “this time in our backyard,” the second officials said.
“Most assume competition will be seen and felt far from home,” he said. “This is another reminder that we are an island nation subject to naval competition right off our shores.”
Putin seems intent on causing turmoil and has been taunting our president with these calculated moves since April when he did something similar in response to Trump bombing Syria after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad decided to gas his people.
In April, Putin tried to block America from attacking by positioning his military in front of ours and attempting to grandstand the U.S., saying we have to go through them to get to Syria. In a strange coincidence, yesterday’s airstrike was exactly 100 years to the day of U.S. entering into World War I. After Putin’s latest move, this day could also bring about the third World War depending on what strategy is employed next.
As Russia moves their warships into place and promises to create an air defense system for Syria, they have forgotten one key item. There is a new sheriff in town, and the snowflakes have gone home. Russia’s archaic military is no match for General Mattis’s current military muscle. Our ships and war plans are light years beyond the Russian counterpart. So rattle your saber, Putin, the real world superpower just returned.
Budweiser’s Super Bowl Ad Leaves Every Disrespected American Citizen Shocked With What It Shows
THE NFL IS DONE!
As one of the NFL’s biggest sponsors, Budweiser let it be known that they aren’t backing down to many Americans’ demands that they pull their support from the sport that allowed protests to continue all season long and destroy the league. Now, they have come out with a new commercial that is leaving every America-loving citizen of this great country disrespected by football players in complete shock right before the Super Bowl that will end the worst season the NFL has ever seen.
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.
Lowes Just Shocked Every Conservative American With New Rule Effective In Their Stores NOW
PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE PISSED OVER THIS!
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!
