Zero Hedge: “A 76-year-old military veteran killed himself outside a Long Island Veteran Affairs facility Sunday after being denied treatment. He was reportedly seeking help for mental health issues at the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center but was turned away, an unfortunately common experience plaguing veterans seeking healthcare in recent years.

According to the New York Times, two people connected to the hospital spoke about the incident on the condition of anonymity. They explained he had been frustrated that he was unable to see an emergency-room physician for reasons related to his mental health,” the Times reported.

He went to the E.R. and was denied service,” one anonymous source said.And then he went to his car and shot himself.

Opinion: If we were to rank the scandals from the IRS targeting right wing causes or the outright lies that passed Obamacare, or the Iran nuclear deal, this one is perhaps the most egregious.

The disdain of United States military veterans.

There is little doubt that if Peter Kaisen of Islip New York had been an illegal alien he would not been dead today. Here’s why:

Under the Emergency Medical and Treatment Act of 1986, Public and private hospitals alike are prohibited by law from denying a patient care in an emergency. The (EMTLA) passed by Congress forbids the denial of care to indigent or uninsured patients based on a lack of ability to pay, including illegal aliens.

Newsflash: The Veterans Administration is not subject to the EMTLA.

In March 2015, President Obama said, “It’s important to know that somebody’s got their backs, and that,  if there are problems, that we are not going to be defensive about it, not hiding it.”

In October 2015, Hillary Clinton said that the “VA problem is not as widespread as it’s made out to be”.

The VA is a parallel universe:

  • Senior employees that can’t be fired (here)
  • Patients die waiting for care (here)
  • Roach infested kitchens (here)

On March 23, 2016, Charles Richard Imgram III doused himself in gasoline and lit himself on fire after leaving outside a Department of Veterans Affairs clinic in New Jersey.

Nothing has changed since the scandal broke in 2014, and only one candidate for president has promised to fix the VA, and it ain’t Hillary Clinton.

CNBC: “U.S. economic growth was a bit more sluggish than initially thought in the second quarter as businesses aggressively ran down stocks of unsold goods, offsetting a spurt in consumer spending.

Gross domestic product expanded at a 1.1 percent annual rate, the Commerce Department said on Friday in its second estimate of GDP. That was slightly down from the 1.2 percent rate reported last month.

The revision also reflected more imports than previously estimated as well as weak spending by state and local governments.”

 Opinion: Let’s see if any of this makes sense.
  • Unemployment = 4.9% or full employment
  • Gross Domestic Product growth = 1.1%

The last time we had full employment, 4.7%, was 2006-7, GDP was growing at just under 5%.

So how is it possible that full employment today is producing 1.1% GDP growth?

The answer is that the job creation under Obamacare is part time low wage jobs. When you factor in 93 million who have stopped looking for work, the numbers look even worse.

According to Investors Business Daily the real unemployment rate is 9.8%

Call this the Obama theme song: “Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam, and the deer and the antelope play, where seldom is heard a discouraging word …. all together now … And the skies are not cloudy all day.”

Reuters World News: “Four of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) vessels “harassed” a U.S. warship on Tuesday near the Strait of Hormuz, a U.S. defense official said, amid Washington’s concerns about Iran’s posture in the Gulf and in the Syrian civil war.

The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said on Wednesday that two of the Iranian vessels came within 300 yards of the USS Nitze in an incident that was “unsafe and unprofessional.”

The vessels harassed the destroyer by “conducting a high speed intercept and closing within a short distance of Nitze, despite repeated warnings,” the official said.”

Opinion: The direct result of leading from behind. It began in Libya, 2011, during the downfall of Gadaffi as the rebels reached Tripoli. Obama choked and passed the baton to an international coalition.

It continued in Syria with the infamous red line and it continues today as Russian Planes buzz US war ships, Iran takes US Navy sailors prisoner on their knees at gun point, and now the same nation that was bestowed $150 billion in Obamacash and  $400 million in ransom, is kicking sand in the face of the President of the United States.

It is embarrassing and it is on purpose.

From underfunding the military to firing over 100 generals to an incompetent and bloated Veterans Administration, this president is doing every thing he can to weaken and degrade the world’s lone global superpower and strongest military in the world.

The transfer of power and prestige to a global government is underway. All that is needed is 4 more years.

Rushed evacuation of US nukes from Incirlik

Debkafile: “In an earthshaking Middle East development, the United States has begun secretly evacuating the tactical nuclear weapons it had stockpiled at the southern Turkish air base of Incirlik and is transporting them to US bases in Romania. The Obama administration has thus taken another step towards folding its tents in the Middle East. In contrast,
