Oath Keepers editor’s note: This article in full is found here: http://www.newswithviews.com/Devvy/kidd622.htm
I am going to paste some teasers here to pique readers’ interest to click that link and go read the article. Beware: there is a bit of “Democrat/Communist” bashing in Devvy’s narrative, but she is not deceived by the “Republican/Communists” either. This article is about how the idiots in Congress (both sides of the aisle) are screwing our Veterans and it is packed with remarkable links and resources which many of our readers will find quite interesting. Please do go to Devvy’s article and check out the remarkable collection of more-than-interesting links – and – see what is happening to the money Congress promised our Veterans when they signed up, but now is pulling back, withholding promised benefits for our Vets. Teasers from article:
“Then I say, the earth belongs to each of these generations during its course, fully and in its own right. The second generation receives it clear of the debts and encumbrances of the first, the third of the second, and so on. For if the first could charge it with a debt, then the earth would belong to the dead and not to the living generation. Then, no generation can contract debts greater than may be paid during the course of its own existence.” — Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 1789. ME 7:455, Papers 15:393
In late December 2013, thieves in the Outlaw Congress decided the only way to get a budget bill passed and avoid another partial government shut down was to screw veterans. Again:
“Veterans and conservatives are expressing outrage toward House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). The cuts to retired service members’ pensions embedded in the budget deal cut by him and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) elicited an overwhelming surge of social media responses….
“As Breitbart News has reported, Ryan initially claimed that disabled and injured veterans’ pensions would be exempt from the cuts—a claim he then scrubbed from an official House Budget Committee document two days before the House vote on the budget deal last Thursday. Ryan and Murray now call the fact that wounded warriors are not exempt from pension cuts a “mistake,” but Ryan’s scrubbing of that document means two days prior to the House vote on the bill he was already aware of what he now calls a mistake. Nonetheless, he did nothing to try to fix it…(snip)
ILLEGAL aliens are more important than our veterans and national security. Liars, cheats and thieves, illegals, get priority treatment over those who are ready, if necessary, to give their lives for our country. It costs you and me more than $100 BILLION borrowed dollars at the federal level for illegal aliens in just one year. That’s not counting the taxes we are fleeced for every year at the state level to pay for illegal aliens in welfare and crime – hundreds of billions of dollars. But, there’s no money to honor the commitment made to our veterans.
Three months prior to the vote betraying veterans, maniacal Nancy Pelosi said this:
“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says that while deficit reduction is a laudable goal, there are precious few spending cuts left to negotiate in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. “The cupboard is bare,” the California Democrat said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “There’s no more cuts to make.”
Really? The cupboard is bare? No more cuts to make?
“US to Give $125 Million to Upgrade Pakistan’s Power Sector. “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, seeking to bolster Islamabad’s fight against Islamic extremists US corporaterrorists’ profits, initiated a crash U.S. assistance program for Pakistan’s power sector aimed at rolling back electricity shortages that threaten to cripple the South Asian nation’s economy. Mrs. Clinton, on the first of a three-day diplomatic mission to Pakistan, said that Washington will disburse $125 million to Islamabad for the upgrading of key power stations and transmission lines….
