Yes, a protest at the Los Angeles VA on Monday

[ Editor’s Note: As Gordon has written many times before, of all those listed as having served in Vietnam, a statistic that is carefully hidden away is that only 10% were ever in combat.

For decades after the war, we saw a slow but endless movement, a general PR movement for the military, to move the rest a bit closer to the front lines, such as anyone on a supply ship moored in a harbor who never got off the boat was “qualified” for a Vietnam Service Medal for having “served” there.

You don’t have to ask me what the Nam combat vets thinks of that. They were already pissed at all the non-combat officers that wiggled into getting a helicopter ride out to a front line combat unit to go out on patrol for a day, or until humping in the heat and humidity for a few hours had them barfing up their breakfast and having to go back to base for to deal with an “emergency”.

Note the mention of Judicial Watch below, as they are helping out purely because of political criticism for the Democratic LA government. JW is Sheldon Adelson, and he could not give a crap over any American Vets.

That said, the homeless Vets have some better tent accommodations, which they are due when we look at the massive amounts being spent on the Covid warJim W. Dean ]

Hi All…
 
This is a follow-up to an email I recently sent you about Robert (Bob) Rosebock, President, Old Veterans Guard…
 
– Yesterday, in his Weekly Wrap-Up, Tom Fitton, the President of Judicial Watch:
  
— Talked about Bob’s 12 yrs of protests held every Sunday concerning West LA VA issues
 
—  He announced Bob will conduct a Special Memorial Day Ceremony:
  • Monday, May 25,2020 at 1:00pm
  • Old Veterans Guard Historic Plaza
  • Northeast Corner of Wilshire & San Vicente Boulevards
  • Bring your American Flags 

 

— And he mentioned that he & JW attorney, Paul Orfanedes have in the past and are now defending the rights of Bob and the members of the Old Veterans Guard

 

— He told about Judicial Watch donating new large tents to Bob to help him properly “house” with a large tent and a cot the homeless Veterans that sleep on the sidewalk in front of the VA

 

— Inside VA fence, VA is offering them a small “pup-tent” (most vets are elderly and can’t even crawl into them, to then sleep on the ground.

 
Please Help Bob spread the word…
Bob can be contacted at: 
[email protected] OR  310-490-6495

Finally…Take a look at just a few of the news stories published over the past 12 months about Bob and his protests…Then Remember: Bob has been conducting protests there consistently for 12+ YEARS!

Major Progress for Homeless Veterans Living Outside Los Angeles VA

Los Angeles VA 'Internment Camp'Fellow Veterans and Friends of Veterans

As most of you know, the Los Angeles VA recently opened what is nothing shy of an “internment camp” inside the VA to temporarily shelter a few homeless Veterans.

This was not out of humanitarian goodwill or goodness of the heart, but because a federal judge notified LA County and City officials that they had to provide public portable toilets for all the homeless during the Chinavirus lockdown.

“A Call to Action!”

Save Our Veterans Land, Bring Our Homeless Veterans HOMEFellow Veterans and Friends of Veterans

Today marks the 12th Anniversary (624 consecutive Sundays) of the Veterans Revolution to “Save Our Veterans Land” and to “Bring Our Homeless Veterans HOME.”

In our quest to bring about a responsible resolve to our nation’s capital for homeless Veterans with the entrusted VA bureaucrats and politicians, the only thing they’ve done is to continue to fail our disabled and homeless Veterans as the homeless Veteran population increases outside the VA, and so does the crime, corruption and land fraud-fraud inside the VA.

Why is a Massive Wall Being built at the Los Angeles VA and Not at Our Southern Border?Fellow Veterans and Friends of Veterans

Why is this massive wall being built at the Los Angeles VA and not at our southern border?

For more than three years, President Trump has been calling for a southern border wall to stop the influx of illegal immigrants into the USA.

The VA Fails Our Veterans Again! -- Start the New Year off right!Fellow Americans:

So, how was your New Year’s Day?

Presumably, most all of us spent it safely and quietly in the comfort of our own private residence.

That’s because men and women on active duty in our U.S. Military – Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard – have pledged their lives to protect us for nearly two-and-a-half centuries.

Tonight at 7 PM, (PST), Congressman Ted Lieu is holding a public “VA Homelessness Meeting” at his second-floor office at 1625 Corinth Avenue, West Los Angeles, CA 90025.

On February 20, 2015, nearly five years ago and three weeks after the infamous VA “settlement agreement” was signed, newly elected U.S. Congressman Ted Lieu sent the attached invitation letter to attend his swearing-in ceremony as the replacement to Henry Waxman who served nearly four decades in the 33rd District.

As proudly repeated over and over, without Canada Free Press’ relentless coverage of the criminal activity at the most corrupt VA in America—the Los Angeles VA—there would be no coverage and exposure.

Thanks again for CFP’s honorable service to our U.S. Military Veterans, particularly our war-injured and homeless Veterans and their legally deeded land known as the Los Angeles National Veterans Home.

Thanks to the loyal and proud few who attended yesterday’s Sunday protest against the most corrupt VA in the nation.  See attached photos.

Trump To Take Action On LA Homeless Crisis?

Trump To Take Action On LA Homeless CrisisWell, well, well …. what’s this?  Trump To Take Action On LA Homeless Crisis? ‘Very Large Delegation’ Reportedly In Town For Talks /

“President Trump has ordered White House officials to conduct a sweeping crackdown on homelessness in California, citing the state’s growing crisis,” the Washington Post reports.

“The talks have intensified in recent weeks. Administration officials have discussed using the federal government to get homeless people off the streets of Los Angeles and other areas and into new government-backed facilities, according to two officials briefed on the planning. But it is unclear how they could accomplish this and what legal authority they would use.”

VAs Divide & Conquer:  Segregating VSO Leaders From Elected Officials

VAs Divide & Conquer: Segregating VSO Leaders From Elected Officials
Attention local VSOs (Veteran Service Organizations) … American Legion, VFW, DAV, MOPH, Jewish War Veterans, VVA, etc.

Per the e-mail below, you’ve been informed by the traitorous VA bureaucrat, Erik J. Gutierrez, a Veteran and member of the AL Post 283, that you are “not equal” to our elected officials, as “VSO’s have different perspectives and skill sets,” and therefore do not deserve to be at the same table while corrupt politicians that are telling the VA what to do with our Veterans’ sacred land.

Lest you’ve forgotten, that while VSOs are sanctioned by congress, the congress is sanctioned by “We the People.”

  1. My father joined up in 1940, serving in the Army 1941-1945 SW Pacific in WW2, from the Air attacks in Darwin, through New Guinea, the Admiralties, and the Philippines. From national guard Corporal, to 1st Lt with the 1st Cavalry. He also shared Gordon’s view about “Veterans” who never got anywhere near combat. He used to call the VFW the Liars Club.

  2. With all that film making equipment in LA so close at hand, it is incredible that we here in the east never get to see about Bob and company except on VT.
    I do get to see celebrities dog walking and even the obituaries for the said famous dogs !

    Tomorrows protest is perfect timing for all the idle cameramen and celebrities to do a good one.

    • Amen, Robert is the Energizer Bunny, the real one. The back story here is not only have all the LA veterans groups pretty much treated him as a leper, but on a national basis, too. The most probable reason is their national offices have waived them off, as in “it will hurt the relationships we have build with Congress, etc”…for protecting veterans benefits, which involves a much larger number of people so we have to stay out of it “for the greater good”.

    • The option of designating charitable funds means the money goes where the origin of donation says it goes. It was a heart felt honest donation to give the veterans land in LA and now it is where the veterans sleep on concrete, kept out by a fence. WTF
      There is a story here, that flies in the face of standard obligatory recognition of veterans and their families, and it is not ok. The confiscation of designated donations, to provide the thing to cure that which they do love to talk about,…veterans sleeping in the street. I guess the donation exceeded the perceived allotment for that sort of thing. Maybe Katy Perry will take em in at the 8 million dollar LA nunnery. Concrete is not good for the old bones don’t ya know. Foam mattresses are 100 bucks at walmart. Just need a little roof.
