Zuckerberg’s Game Changing Admission In Front Of Congress Could Cost Him His Company

Things are not looking too good for social media empire created by Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook. The CEO testified before the Senate today after weeks of attacks about the corporation’s privacy policies. Zuckerberg seemed to agree that the company could be seen as a publisher, not just a platform. Republican Senator John Cornyn from Texas questioned, “We’ve been told that platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the like are neutral platforms, and the people who own and run them for profit … bore no responsibility for the content. Do you agree now that Facebook and other social media platforms are not neutral platforms but bear some responsibility for the content?”

Zuckerberg answered the question by saying, “I agree that we’re responsible for the content.”

Take a look at the video below:

It looks like the social media mogul might have just opened the floodgates to some serious legal issues. In general, platforms are not held legally responsible when it comes to any content that is posted on them. This means that liability issues from copyright violation issues, all the way to slander, are not big issues for social media websites, as long as they operate as ‘platforms’ not ‘publishers’.  Basically, you aren’t able to sue your phone company if someone slanders you during a phone call that is being carried by that provider. Things aren’t the same when it comes to publishers. On the contrary, publishers are responsible for the content they publish their platforms.

If the same exact thing was true for Facebook, you can be sure that the corporation would be on the hook for hundreds of billions, if not trillions of dollars when it comes to legal liability. When it comes to copyright violation, there is a statutory penalty which sits somewhere in between $750 and $30,000 per every single violation.  When you consider the billions of posts that are published on Facebook each day you begin to realize just how immense Faccbook’s liability could be.

The Daily Wire wrote, “How many unlicensed photos are posted on Facebook daily? On a minute-by-minute basis? Now, instead of a photo journalist suing the person who posted the photo, the photo journalist could sue Facebook itself. And Facebook’s pockets are a lot deeper.”

When you decide that you are going to declare your platform as a political outlet, this is when the real issue begins. Some claim that Mark Zuckerberg had already begun doing this right after the 2016 presidential election. Facebook could be paying the ultimate price because of Zuckerberg’s mistakes.

During his testimony today, Zuckerberg stated that his company made an “enforcement error” when it came to censoring popular conservative commentators Diamond and Silk

Zuckerberg was questioned by Texas Republican Joe Barton. Barton read Zuckerberg a message he had received over Facebook which asked by Facebook had censored the pro-Trump African American commentators Diamond and Silk.

Zuckerberg claimed that it was all just a big mistake saying, “In that specific case,” Zuckerberg replied, “our team made an enforcement error. And we have already got in touch with them to reverse it.”

Looks like Facebook could soon be fighting for it’s life.

Chuck Schumer Declares Victory on Omnibus: ‘We’re Able to Accomplish More in the Minority’

Chuck Schumer sits with Nancy Pelosi, both smiling.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) declared victory on the omnibus spending bill Thursday, saying, “We’re able to accomplish more in the minority.”

Schumer said, “It’s a funny thing. In a certain sense, we’re able to accomplish more in the minority than we were when we had the presidency or even were in the majority.”

The Senate Minority Leader continued, “At the end of the day, as the minority party, we feel good about being able to succeed in so many ways. We don’t have the House, we don’t have the Senate, we don’t have the presidency, but we produced a darn good bill for the priorities we have believed in.”

Sen. Schumer also touted the inclusion of the Gateway bridge project in the omnibus, as well as increased funding for the National Institute of Health (NIH).

House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) lamented in an interview with Breitbart News Daily on Tuesday that the “Senate Democrats seem to be calling most of the shots.”

As Breitbart News reported, the omnibus spending bill contains language that explicitly bars funding for a southern border wall.

The omnibus also contains provisions that expand the H-2B visa-worker program, which would reduce market pressure on companies to offer American workers higher wages.

Republican leadership included provisions that will allow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct gun research as well.

Additionally, the omnibus has the Fix NICS Act, which would allow unelected bureaucrats to remove Americans’ right to purchase firearms without due process.

The House Freedom Caucus came out against the omnibus on Wednesday night, calling the legislation an “insult to American taxpayers.”

The House conservatives sent a letter to the White House asking President Trump to reject the omnibus, calling the spending bill a rejection of everything conservatives promised the American people.

Republican leadership unveiled the legislation on Wednesday and gave House lawmakers less than 17 hours to vote on the bill.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said Wednesday that the omnibus spending bill “is a Great Dane-sized whiz down the leg of every taxpayer.”

President Donald Trump signed the $1.3 trillion, 2,232-page spending bill on Friday.

Developing: McCabe Cracks, Throws Comey Under Bus, Accuses of Perjury

Image result for Developing: McCabe Cracks, Throws Comey Under Bus, Accuses of Perjury

Disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired Friday night, two days prior to his official retirement with full benefits, by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on recommendations from both the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility and the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General.

And it looks like he might not want to go down alone.

McCabe was fired for allegedly lying to federal investigators and for making alleged unauthorized disclosures to the media about sensitive investigations. Basically, he is alleged to have “lacked candor” with investigators about making anonymous leaks to a Wall Street Journal reporter about the status of the Clinton Foundation investigation in 2016.

In what could only be described as an already prepared statement, McCabe released a letter shortly after his termination that attempted to give his side of the story and asserted that he had been “singled out” by a vindictive President Donald Trump for removal, a laughable claim given the recommendations of the Obama-era-initiated inspector general’s investigation led by the Obama-appointed IG and career bureaucrats at the FBI’s OPR.

But there was something else in McCabe’s statement that caught the eye of law professor Jonathan Turley, who described in The Hill how McCabe appeared to have contradicted his former boss, former FBI Director James Comey, and essentially accused him of committing perjury.

In dispute of the allegations of unauthorized leaks to the media, McCabe wrote, “I chose to share with a reporter through my public affairs officer and a legal counselor. As deputy director, I was one of only a few people who had the authority to do that. It was not a secret, it took place over several days, and others, including the director, were aware of the interaction with the reporter.”

Turley pointed out that since Comey was the director at that time, McCabe’s claim that his leaks were authorized — or at least done with the knowledge of — his boss would run completely counter to testimony delivered under oath by Comey in May 2017 during a congressional hearing.

In that hearing, Comey was asked directly by Sen. Chuck Grassley if he himself had “ever been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation” or if he had “ever authorized someone else at the FBI to be an anonymous source in news reports about the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation,” to which Comey had replied without hesitation “Never” and “No.”

Thus, we now know that either Comey or McCabe has lied about the leaks to The Wall Street Journal reporter. If Comey told Congress the truth that he never authorized any leaks to the media, then McCabe just lied and threw Comey under the bus to save his own skin.

Likewise, if McCabe is telling the truth that he had permission to leak information to the reporter, then that means Comey lied under oath to Congress when he denied ever authorizing such leaks.

If it turns out that McCabe just lied, it represents little more than cornered rats biting each other as they attempt to flee a sinking ship, as he was already fired for lying and faces potential prosecution for such. What is one more charge in that case?

But if Comey is the one who lied, he stands to suffer more than McCabe from the exposure, as he is about to launch a lucrative book tour to promote his memoir, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership.”

Oh, the irony.

Furthermore, Comey is already facing scrutiny over how he handled the Clinton investigation as well as memos he allegedly wrote about his interactions with Trump and kept after he was fired, some of which were leaked to a friend in the media and which may contain classified information.

On top of that, Turley noted that if it were McCabe who lied and he somehow avoids prosecution for the crime, then he just inadvertently opened the door for President Donald Trump to issue a full pardon for former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who was forced by special counsel Robert Mueller to plead guilty to lying to investigators, a crime it appears McCabe just committed.

One of these two individuals — Comey or McCabe — was lying about leaks to the media, as they both can’t be telling contradictory truth about the same incident in question.

We will know for sure which is the case when the OIG report is released to the public and the full extent of alleged partisan misconduct of FBI leadership is revealed.

What do you think of these contradictory statements from Comey and McCabe about leaks to the media? Scroll down to comment below!

BREAKING!!! CONGRESS Just SAID IT… Prison Is Coming For Dems!

Looks like Attorney General Jeff Sessions is finally being called to task over what has been a less than stellar performance.

Congressmen Gaetz, Gowdy and Goodlatte are now joining forces by calling for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate FISA warrant abuses under the Barack Hussein Obama presidency. And Gaetz has gone as far as saying Obama’s state department functioned as an arm of Hillary Clinton’s failed Presidential Campaign.

Appearing on Monday morning’s edition of “Rose Unplugged,” Republican Congressman from Florida Matt Gaetz spoke at great lengths about the information which would be uncovered if there was a special council appointed to the FISA mess. Gaetz also noted that more revelations would come to light regarding the State Department under President Obama and the way they operated against people they deemed to be a threat to the Democrat Party establishment.

 

Although we all know the Clinton Machine is one of the most corrupt and crooked organizations in history, they always seem to get away with their crimes. No one is ever made to pay for their twisted ways. Don’t take my word for it, ask the Haitians who were swindled out of the multi-millions they were supposed to get from the Clinton Foundation after the earthquake which left most of the nation in ruins.

I can’t for the life of me understand is why Attorney General Jeff Sessions is sitting in the sidelines while President Trump is being investigated on false Rusian collusion charges while the Clintons and the Obamas run free and clear of any investigation whatsoever.

Is he really a plant from the left? Maybe. But whatever reason, he perfectly illustrates the reason why President Trump won and we are sick and tired of the Republican Party. They are just a bunch of weak hacks who are afraid of their own shadow and spend their whole time in office defending themselves.

It’s about time the GOP gets on the offensive! Are you listening, Attorney General Sessions?

Via Fox News:

“House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Rep. Trey Gowdy on Tuesday demanded the appointment of a special counsel to investigate “conflicts of interest” and decisions “made and not made” by current and former Justice Department officials in 2016 and 2017, noting that “the public interest requires” the action.

Gowdy, R-S.C., and Goodlatte, R-Va., penned a letter Tuesday to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

“Matters have arisen—both recently and otherwise—which necessitate the appointment of a Special Counsel. We do not make this observation and attendant request lightly,” Gowdy and Goodlatte wrote.

They pointed, specifically, toward the use of the infamous anti-Trump dossier used in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to obtain a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“There is evidence of bias, trending toward animus, among those charged with investigating serious cases,” they wrote. “There is evidence political opposition research was used in court filings. There is evidence this political opposition research was neither vetted before it was used nor fully revealed to the relevant tribunal.”

Asked why a special counsel was needed, Gowdy told Fox News, “Congress doesn’t have the tools to investigate this… We leak like the Gossip Girls.”

 

They added: “Questions have arisen with the FISA process and these questions and concerns threaten to impugn both public and congressional confidence in significant counterintelligence program processes and those charged with overseeing and implementing these counterintelligence processes.”

Goodlatte also told Fox News he thought the FISA process “was abused.”

Gowdy and Goodlatte wrote that because the “decisions of both former and current Department of Justice and FBI officials are at issue,” they do not believe the DOJ is “capable” of investigating the “fact patterns in a fashion likely to garner public confidence.”

Last week, Sessions announced that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz would investigate allegations of government surveillance abuse in light of memos released on Capitol Hill by the House Intelligence Committee which suggested, at least on the Republican side, that the dossier compiled by ex-British Intelligence officer Christopher Steele was used to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil Page.

President Trump, though, blasted Sessions’ decision, saying he appointed an “Obama guy” to investigate “potentially massive FISA abuse.”

Horowitz also is investigating former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and whether he wanted to avoid taking action on new Clinton emails found on disgraced Democratic New York Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop, reports said. According to records, McCabe knew about the emails belonging to Hillary Clinton in September 2016, but did not choose to brief former FBI Director James Comey until October 26, 2016 — prompting the re-opening of the Clinton email investigation just one week before the presidential election.

“While we have confidence in the Inspector General for the Department of Justice, the DOJ IG does not have the authority to investigate other governmental entities or former employees of the Department, the Bureau, or other agencies,” Gowdy and Goodlatte wrote. Gowdy also serves as chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

They added: “Some have been reluctant to call for the appointment of a Special Counsel because such an appointment should be reserved for those unusual cases where existing investigative and prosecutorial entities cannot adequately discharge those duties. We believe this is just such a case.”

Goodlatte, who penned a letter to Sessions in July 2017 and September 2017 calling for the appointment of a second special counsel, received only one response from the Justice Department, suggesting that Sessions had directed senior federal prosecutors to investigate matters involving the Clinton Foundation and the sale of Uranium One — leaving the door open to consider whether “the matters merit the appointment of a Special Counsel.”

House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., slammed Goodlatte and Gowdy, saying they are “simply off base.”

“Chairman Goodlatte and Chairman Gowdy are simply off base–just as they were last year, when they called for a new special counsel to investigate a slew of Hillary Clinton conspiracy theories,” Nadler said in a statement in response to their letter. “Where there is no crime, there is no criminal investigation for a second special counsel to manage.”

Goodlatte and Gowdy’s letter comes just days after more than a dozen other House Republicans penned a similar note, requesting the appointment of an independent counsel to investigate the same issues.

The 13 lawmakers signed onto the letter that stated: “Evidence has come to light that raises serious concerns about decisions and activities by leadership at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding how and why the Clinton probe ended and how and why the Trump-Russia probe began.””

Congress Just Blindsided Obama After Evidence Surfaces From His Dirtiest Skeleton Yet

Earlier this week The House Oversight Committee which is chaired by none other than Congressman Trey Gowdy called for a new special counsel to be appointed to investigate crimes involving bias and FISA abuse at the Obama Department of Justice during his eight years in office.

The official request to the DOJ was made by Republican Congressmen Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte, who is now the chairman of the judiciary committee.

The letter goes on to state that “Matters have arisen” which require the appointment of a special counsel. The letter is addressed to both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The letter goes on to cite the fake anti-Trump dossier which was paid for by both the Democrats and the Hillary Clinton campaign as being robust and irrefutable evidence of bias at both the FBI and DOJ. That sounds right because the dossier was never vetted and was a politically-motivated document which was used in court filings to get a warrant to wiretap a then private citizen.

Gowdy went on to state, “There is evidence of bias, trending toward animus, among those charged with investigating serious cases, there is evidence political opposition research was used in court filings. There is evidence this political opposition research was neither vetted before it was used nor fully revealed to the relevant tribunal.” And later added “Congress doesn’t have the tools to investigate this. … We leak like the Gossip Girls.”

Glad to see someone is finally doing something. Although it’s doubtful any of these characters will ever end up seeing the inside of a jail cell, that’s only reserved for common folk. It will go a long way towards ending the so-called myth that former President Barack Obama’s administration had no scandals when in reality they were one of the dirtiest administrations in history, but since they owned the media, no one ever knew about it.

Via Jewish World Review:

“And he declared that his administration had been scandal-free.

“We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” Obama said. Sure, there were occasional mistakes and screw-ups, “but there wasn’t anything venal in eight years.”

Obama, his former aides, and his media devotees have been making this claim for years. With so much repetition, it has become a popular urban legend. But popularity isn’t truth.

The 44th president may not have been “embarrassed” by them, but his administration abounded in scandals, in at least three of which Americans died. Here’s a refresher:

Operation Fast and Furious. In a botched “gunwalking” sting, the Justice Department allowed thousands of guns to be sold to suspected smugglers, in the hope of tracing them to Mexican drug cartels. But the Obama administration lost track of the weapons, many of which later turned up at crime scenes in which scores of people were murdered.

Among the dead: US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, killed by drug gangsters in 2010. Compounding the scandal was Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to turn over documents relating to the operation, a refusal for which he was held in contempt of Congress.

Benghazi. When Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed in a terrorist attack on the US consulate in Libya in 2012, administration officials falsely blamed their deaths on an irrelevant YouTube video. That wasn’t fog of war, it was deceit. In public statements, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attributed the attack to “inflammatory material posted on the Internet.” But in private e-mails to her daughter and the Egyptian prime minister — e-mails not discovered until 2015 — she candidly acknowledged that the Americans had been assaulted and killed by “an al Qaeda-like group.”

Veterans Administration. On Obama’s watch, tens of thousands of veterans were denied proper health care at VA hospitals. Their names were added to phony waiting lists and they were stonewalled for months or even years. More than 300,000 veterans may have died awaiting medical treatment that never came. According to the Veterans Affairs inspector general, thousands of veterans’ health care enrollment applications were deleted or buried. Eventually VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned in disgrace.

Numerous other scandals plagued the Obama administration.

The IRS discriminated against politically conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, placing organizations on indefinite hold if their names contained such terms as “Tea Party” or “Patriots.”

The Office of Personnel Management suffered a catastrophic data breach that exposed the confidential records of at least 10 million federal employees to hackers. OPM’s director had repeatedly been warned that the agency was vulnerable to cyber attack, but had failed to take the warnings seriously.

The Obama administration, eager to promote “green” energy, lavished more than $500 million in loan guarantees on Solyndra, a high-risk startup. When the company went bankrupt, taxpayers ate the loss.

From letting Hezbollah funnel cocaine into the United States to secretly wiretapping AP reporters, there were scandals aplenty when Obama was president. The media reported them all, but never with the fury and frenzy that characterize coverage of Donald Trump’s schedule. Obama benefited from being a media darling. Trump, obnoxious and belligerent, practically invites hostile coverage.”

Confiscation Is Here: State Congress Orders Once Legal Owners to Turn in Guns

The left said this would never happen.  Confiscation was not what they were after.  We all knew it was a lie and now it’s going to be a reality for some gun owners.  When they came for the 18-20 year old’s right did you speak up, even though you were not one of them?
Conservative Tribune Reports: It happens every time there’s talk of gun control laws: The left predictably scoffs at gun owners, calling them paranoid for not trusting the state.

“Nobody wants to confiscate your guns,” liberals assure the rest of America. “Stop exaggerating.”

Flash forward to Thursday. Lawmakers in Democrat-controlled Illinois have passed a bill to — you guessed it — confiscate currently legal firearms from gun owners. So much for being paranoid.

Congress Wants to Take Away Obama’s Pension

Image result for Congress Wants to Take Away Obama’s Pension

Congress has put Barack Obama on notice that his generous government pension could be taken away if he keeps living like a celebrity.

Obama’s behavior since leaving office has only cemented the fact that he’s an elitist.

From partying on yachts with Hollywood stars to raking in MILLIONS OF DOLLARS in book deals and speaking fees, Obama’s doing anything but retire with class and grace.

He certainly wasn’t the “people’s president,” and there’s no reason the PEOPLE should be subsidizing his lavish lifestyle.

USA Today reported that Congress is taking another look at a bill that would cancel pension payments to past presidents if they earn $400,000 or more in a fiscal year.

Unsurprisingly, Obama himself vetoed that bill when it was first introduced.

Obama had already put the wheels of his post-presidency cash machine in place, and wasn’t about to let Congress derail his plans.

But now that he’s out, Congress is going after Obama.

In response to the USA Today report that Obama’s earnings could trigger congressional action, House Oversight and Government Reform Chair Jason Chaffetz responded:

Let Congress know we are behind them – SHARE THIS EVERYWHERE!

Obama is using OUR tax dollars to fund a level of luxury he does NOT DESERVE.

Mind-Altering Drug Scandal Rocks Washington, Members Of Congress Could Soon Be Forced To Resign Because Of This

Image result for Mind-Altering Drug Scandal Rocks Washington, Members Of Congress Could Soon Be Forced To Resign Because Of This

The continuous level-headed discussion of whether high-ranking government officials should be forced to undergo drug testing has quite recently been exposed. A few individuals from Congress were quite recently uncovered for being on a reiteration of mind-altering medications which a pharmacist in Washington, D.C’s. top legislators quite recently uncovered subsequent to feeling guilty about a portion of the medicines he had been giving these authorities for months. He feels that genuine conditions these endorsed meds are to treat can and do have some especially condemning impacts on the sorts of choices these Congress individuals are depended to make.

Many lower-level government workers are legitimately compelled to undergo random drug testing for the undeniable reason for being in a data touchy position. Since these individuals should be clear personality and judgment just to deal with paperwork and procedures, shouldn’t the individuals who settle on the huge choices must be more solid judgment than those underneath them? Obviously, control has superseded this security check and enabled numerous individuals from Congress to medicate themselves to perilous levels which have now caused some really significant issues that the pharmacist to the legislators is feeling terrible about.

Mike Kim is the owner and pharmacist of the pharmacy utilized by a significant number of D.C’s. most renowned government officials and addressed STAT News’ Erin Mershon around a disturbing pattern he’s seen of late. Not just has he been endorsing individuals from Congress with Alzheimer’s medication, but at the same time, he’s been giving medications to different calamities also, none of which individuals in this monstrous position of power ought to most likely be experiencing.

Via STAT News:

Mike Kim, the reserved pharmacist-turned-owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.

“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

Kim’s tiny pharmacy — which, at its busiest, sends as many as 100 prescriptions to members in a day — is nestled among Capitol Hill’s stateliest row houses, less than four blocks from the Capitol building itself. Founded in 1867 and named for a previous owner, the pharmacy predates penicillin, the American health insurance system, and even the Lincoln Memorial.

This is no judgment on individuals who take medications, as the openness to treatment to enhance life is a gift of living during a time of current medicine. This involves perceiving your constraints and recognizing a condition and not keeping up an effective position only for control or any reason that could trade off execution and basic leadership capacities. These are normal desires of individuals in lesser limits of any industry, even outside of governmental issues that influence the heading of our nation. All the more critically, this medication/medical condition circumstance brings the requirement for term breaking points to the cutting edge.

The same number of our Senators and Congressman are slipping into seniority, some of their medications ought to be raised doubt about. In the event that a man gets to an age where they are never again ready to securely work a vehicle, family, and companions go alongside and say that’s the last straw.

When we choose our leaders we expect they are of sound personality and in great physical condition. Nobody is anticipating that a chose authority should run a mile in 5:00 minutes level, however when a person’s doctor is prescribing prescription to ensure that you can work at a typical level rationally, at that point it’s likely time to make a move.

There are numerous Senators and Congressmen who have been in office for more than 30 years, huge numbers of these individuals are in there 70’s and 80’s and are requiring a portion of the meds portrayed before. Age and wellbeing ought to be an argument for term limits, as unmistakably spoke to by Senator John McCain as of late. While experiencing surgery and post-operative treatment for brain cancer, he made some dubious votes concerning Obamacare repeal and replace. He keeps on torment from brain cancer he has portrayed as “very serious,” yet stays in office.

It has become visible that some high-level leaders in Washington D.C. are being recommended pharmaceuticals to help with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other concerning health and mental health issues speaking to a diminished level of mental capacity, memory and different variables that specifically influence one’s capacity to perform to limit on a political position. These are consistent medical problems that influence loads of Americans, yet shouldn’t we investigate government leaders who experience the ill effects of these illnesses?

It appears that it is the ideal opportunity for open legit talk about these major issues. We all depend on our leaders to settle on steady decisions in sound health.

Congress Tallies Obama’s Final Results: TURNS OUT HE ROBBED $2.6B FROM VETERANS And GAVE $4.5 BILLION To ISLAMIC REFUGEES

Under the Obama Administration, we were living in a country that treated Illegal Aliens and Syrian refugees better than our veterans. That was the America that Obama had created.

Under Obama, the Veterans Affairs (VA) was one of the most mismanaged government entities since 2008. In fact, it had gotten so bad that Obama should have been brought before Congress to account for how poorly and disgustingly he treated our men and women in uniform.

And just when you thought Obama could not treat our vets any worse, he proves us all wrong.

American heroes cannot make doctor’s appointments, the cost of treatment is insanely high, and over 307,000 veterans died while waiting for care. As bad as the problems have gotten, no one has been held accountable.

The most egregious dereliction of his duties came when the VA appeared before Congress and argued that they were short $2,600,000,000 in their budget because that money was taken by Obama and placed in his Syrian refugee program.

The Secretary of Veteran Affairs, Robert McDonald, told Congress that if they are not provided an additional $2.6 billion, they will be forced to deny veterans the care they deserve.

Since 2008, the VA has been so underfunded, they are forced to deny vets everything ranging from doctor appointments to suicidal help, and now Obama is cutting their funding by $2.6 billion so that he can resettle Syrian refugees inside the United States.

Congress was forced to vote on and pass an emergency spending bill worth $3.5 billion.

Immediately following that, Obama’s administration sent an additional $4.5 billion to help rebuild Syrian mosques and homes. Additionally, Obama sent an astonishing $419 million more to Syria for “humanitarian aid.”  READ MORE
