Brown Shirts at the VA

Spread the love

Do you know what a Brown Shirt is?

For the present purposes, with respect to the Trump-Putin administration in Washington, the Brown Shirts are political appointees deployed across the agencies to push out those less than fully loyal to heir Trump. The term can also be applied to muscle that goes to gatherings to either support Trump or disrupt his opponents.

Every veteran that I know is a Loyal American and a Democrat, and is fully opposed to Trump. And I know a lot of them. We are staunch allies. But apparently the actual majority of Vets support Trump. They are, as expected, getting screwed.

I’m going to guess that various libertarian forces want to destroy the Veterans Administration because they themselves don’t need it, and it costs a lot of money. So, the Trump administration is being used to do that. It may also be that Putin wants the VA destroyed because he knows that the Veterans, ultimately, even the Trump loyalists, will not put up with that. Destroying the VA will disrupt the normal functioning of the country, which is a goal of Putin.

So what is happening now? Dozens of senior civil servants at the VA who are not known to be loyal to Trump have been moved out of their offices and put on ice.

From the Washington Post

None said they were given reasons for their reassignments.

The moves are being carried out by a small cadre of political appointees led by Acting Secretary Peter O’Rourke who have consolidated power in the four months since they helped oust Secretary David Shulkin.

The reshuffling marks a new stage in a long estrangement between civil servants and Trump loyalists at VA, where staff upheaval and sinking morale threaten to derail service to one of the president’s key constituencies, according to current and former employees.

10 thoughts on “Brown Shirts at the VA

    1. Anyone stupid enough to believe that the Republicans had any intent to fix things at the VA, or any real concern for the military’s people when they’re injured shoudn’t be taken seriously on anything.

  1. Actually, the organs of government have been run by
    the Leninist for over a half a century.

    “Anyone stupid enough to believe that the Republicans had any intent to fix things at the VA,” – notice this nincompoop statement where the writer omitted the “progressive” party. The hallmark of the radical red shirt leftists; omissions,
    lies, subterfuge.

    Frankly, the stupid folks (BO’s enduring word) are those who think that governmental agencies can operator anything efficient and profitable.

    Never let the truth interrupt one’s dogma.

    1. “can operator anything efficient and profitable”

      That was “Intelligently” written by someone who labels anti-Naziis as Leninists, but who then sucks up to Putin and oil oligarchs. Go figure.

      Do you just have a blind need to lash out at a target? Perhaps you have been taught to hate, but don’t really know why? Are you starting to side with a brutal Russian dictators over your fellow Americans? Why do you think you are starting to act like a traitor, BillyR? Do you have a clue?

  2. “Is there a joke in that picture?”

    Yes, it is K9dean, who got kick off the debating team
    for his inability to exercise his cognizant powers or the lack
    of them, which ever came first.

    1. No, I was laughing because you are so ignorant you think “leninists” still exist. And laughing harder when I realized you would have no idea what that word might mean.

  3. “can operator anything efficient and profitable” <—-BillyR quote

    "That was “Intelligently” written by someone who labels anti-Naziis as Leninists, but who then sucks up to Putin and oil oligarchs. Go figure.

    Do you just have a blind need to lash out at a target? Perhaps you have been taught to hate, but don’t really know why? Are you starting to side with a brutal Russian dictators over your fellow Americans? Why do you think you are starting to act like a traitor, BillyR? Do you have a clue?"

    I spoke about the ineptitude, ladies and gentlemen, and SteveP retorts with
    Put Putin; oil oligarchs; Russian dictators, and his redundant claims
    of being a traitor. LOL, LOL

    "Do you have a clue?" I am afraid so, SteveP, that you are clueless.
    Redundant taking points, from your seminars at moveon.org.

    There is little substance in your comments other than leveling
    fake charges and recriminations.

    Frankly, you need to take a refresher course on debating, as your
    responses need the attention of the medical examiner.

    1. billyR, you’ve never made a point that was remotely related to reality. We can’t exchange ideas (debate) with someone like you when all you present are lies.

  4. “…the Brown Shirts are political appointees deployed across the agencies to push out those less than fully loyal to heir Trump.”

    Everywhere Trump goes he creates a mess. And there is plenty of evidence that he admired Hitler, studied at least one of his books, and was fathered by a likely white nationalist. Trump was going to hire Ronny Jackson, his personal, sycophant physician to head the VA, but then had to back down.

    Jackson was allegedly “abusive” to his colleagues, loosely handled prescription pain medications and was periodically intoxicated, even once wrecking a government vehicle while drunk. Oh, and Trump acknowledged that Jackson lacks a background in running a government agency. Minor detail. So another dumb fucked up choice by our boy Donny. I thought Donny said he was going to hire the best people for all the positions in his outfit. I guess his definition of “best” is lacking competence or basic humanity, but good at sucking up to the boss.

    The sooner that the Trump administration is removed from the premises through impeachment, the invocation of the 25th amendment, through a self induced junk food fed stroke, or through a legitimate election, the sooner America can begin to heal and move forward again. Nothing personal. That is just the way it is.
