SITREP 27 JAN 2018: Some Thought Beyond the Politics: The Coup and the VA
Hello Vets in the Fight, this is David Miller with your weekly Special Operations Speaks Vets in the Fight SITREP. We welcome Don and Brenda Smith back from their labor of love, and trip to be with Brenda's Mom last week. Wishing her the speediest of recoveries.
Evidence emerges … or should we say gushes forth? … of criminal sedition by the top-most leadership of the FBI, the NSA, the Department of Justice, Hillary Clinton's campaign and, increasingly, by the Barrack Hussein Obama Oval Office, evidence pointing to an in-progress coup d'état by the Deep State against the America people; We, The People. Had Hillary won in November 2016, their coup would be close to its conclusion by now; the door slamming on the world's last best hope. America represents a 5000-year leap forward for mankind, made possible only and exclusively by the Judeo-Christian principles to which a government by, with and for the people was set in motion by our Founders. A successful Washington Deep State coup d'état (or loss of Congress to the Schumer and Pelosi this November) would nullify that great leap, casting you, your families and the world into a more toxic, atheistic collectivism than Marx ever envisioned. We spent sixty years defeating the Soviet Union. We need to run interference for Donald Trump to defeat a home grown equivalent in far less time.
Speaking of the Swamp, word comes to us that an assets manager working for the Veterans Administration in Los Angeles, Ralph Tillman, a VA Contracting Officer, has accepted a plea agreement with the Feds for having defrauded the VA for $11 million dollars over a thirteen-year period, in cahoots with Richard Scott, owner of Westside Services LLC, and its parking facility. Hm-m, sounds to us like VA parking is a pretty lucrative business endeavor. The VA, the second largest bureaucracy in the Swamp, its bloated Union job roster is more a program for the incompetent and the criminal, than it is for veterans, for decades has served as a handy political football to both the Congress and the Executive. The laws establishing the VA are based on assumptions formulated in the 1950s, since then revised on the margins scores of times, but never to the extent of re-thinking those outdated assumptions. We see no way the current VA can serve the medical needs of the one in two- hundred … that's right, one in two-hundred Americans (!) who defend the rest of us, without a new set of laws establishing a 21st Century American Warrior Veterans Administration. Lacking that the VA will continue to be a convenient political football, a contemptable plaything for the Deep State and its Capitol Hill cartels.
In Charleston, South Carolina, in February 2016, then-Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump sat with Special Operations Speaks and with a new Veterans group called the Veterans Patriot Action Conference, VPAC for short, opening the conversation about Veteran's issues. SOS is committed to not only talking about veteran issues like the Veterans Administration, it is committed to doing something about them by supporting Vets in the Fight, who vote, who serve in public office, and who hold government accountable for its actions. Please go to our Donate page at SpecOpsSpeaks.com. Your contributions, small or large, will be used to put vetted veterans in place to affect the remedies we seek. Thank you in advance for your support.
The Air Force last week awarded SSgt. Christopher Lewis, a combat controller assigned to the 23rd Special Tactics Squadron at Hurlburt Field, Fla., the Silver Star for his actions during a 10-hour firefight near Mosul, Iraq, in 2016. Lt. Gen. Brad Webb, the commander of the Air Force Special Operations Command, presided over the ceremony at Hurlburt. On Oct. 20, 2016, Lewis was embedded with a Navy SEAL team working with Kurdish Peshmerga forces to clear ISIS fighters from two villages near Mosul. His citation points to multiple acts of gallantry while his unit was under heavy fire, including exposing himself to "grave danger" to control airstrikes within 400 meters of his team's position, destroying an oncoming vehicle-borne improvised explosive device within 150 meters of his position while he was manning a .50-caliber machine gun, providing medical care to a mortally wounded teammate within five meters of a live IED, and pulling two others from the vehicle and arranging a quick medical evacuation, as well as facilitating airstrikes resulting in 20 enemy forces' deaths. During his remarks, Webb told the gathered audience, "This is a big deal," noting the Silver Star is the country's third-highest award for valor and gallantry. This is David Miller for Special Operations Speaks and Vets in the Fight everywhere, wishing you a safe and blessed week ahead.
