GORDON DUFF: ACLU LAWSUIT AGAINST VA COPS OPENS A “CAN OF WORMS”

WHISTLEBLOWERS REPORT IRREGULARITIES THREATENING EVERY ASPECT OF VETERAN CARE AND SAFETY

VA ANSWERS LAWSUIT WITH POOR LEGAL PLOY, WANTS TO QUICKLY LOSE AND MAKE PROBLEM GO AWAY

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

NO "HOME" FOR HOMELESS VETS

Veterans began protesting a strange pattern of land “give-aways” over two years ago.  The Department of Veterans Affairs holds billions of dollars of prime real estate in ultra-wealthy West Los Angeles/Brentwood “in trust” for homeless veterans and has since the late 1800s when the National Veterans Home was opened there.

Some of the land wasn’t used immediately though the facility expanded into a National Cemetary as the veterans living there died and a Medical Center was later constructed on the site.  During WWII, the National Veterans Home served as a military base to defend the area against a possible Japanese invasion.  However, the deed has always stated that the land has had one purpose, to house homeless vets.  That has never changed.

Back in the late 1980s, a local group, one continually changing its name, first the Veterans Memorial Garden something or other, then the Committee to Save Veteran Land and later the Veterans Park Conservency were formed.  A search of early documents tells the whole story, the purpose of the group was to keep veterans out, frankly to keep the land from housing the vets it was intended for, though the region is in the middle of the largest group of homeless veterans in the nation, a nation nearing its 10th year of war.

The group opposing the veterans is a powerful and mysterious one, a “shadow” organization espousing neighborhood beautification and enrichment, all to be done on land they don’t own.

The combined net worth of the members of these committees is incalcuable and their power and influence with local VA officials is a matter of great controversy.   The most recent embodiement of these organizations is the highly secretive “Veterans Park Conservency” whose membership reads like a who’s who of the insurance and financial industry in America.

Below is a key portion of one of the founding documents in the move to prevent “The Grand Plan” to re-develop the Veterans National Home for our homeless heroes:

VETERANS MEMORIAL GARDEN COMMITTEE OPENLY OPPOSES HOUSING FOR VETS AT VETERANS NATIONAL HOME

WHAT THIS DOCUMENT TELLS US

“Permanent damage to historically and ecologically significant property.”

THE REAL VERSION OF "HISTORICAL AND ECOLOGICAL"

Housing veterans at the West Los Angeles National Veterans Home, the use it was “historically” established for is “damage?”  Exactly what aspect of dog fouling is either “historical” or “ecological?”  This reeking “pet play” arena is one of the pet projects of the VA standing in the way of veterans housing.

This is the original position paper behind the entire controversy over the accused theft of veterans land in Los Angeles by wealthy local homeowners, land meant for housing, now used to walk dogs, run marathons, provide recreation and sports fields for exclusive private schools that don’t offer scholarships to children of deserving veterans, these and endless more abuses.  The deal is simple, use veterans land as a “country club annex” for the neighborhood, block homeless veterans, using the new million dollar “Beauty Honor Country” fence to lock them out and protect the neighborhood from “undesirables.”

Though the DVA had the ability to rent land to movie crews, some paying tens of thousands a day, to offset costs, we found a record of “dollar a year” or well under market value leases transferring hundreds of millions of dollars of land with little or no revenue at all and no rational reason.  The only land policy the VA has been involved in has been deception and misdirection on behalf of politically powerful local groups with strong ties to the “West Los Angles Political Machine” headed by Congressman Henry Waxman.  This is why “Old Guard” veterans have been protesting for 2 years, despite assaults, illegal arrests and threats.

WHY THE LAWSUIT

THE REAL HISTORY, HOUSING FOR VETERANS

The  American Civil Liberties Union filed suit against Donna Beiter and Ron Mathis.  Beiter is the local VA director, the one who told members of veterans groups, “we do surveillance all the time.”  Ron Mathis runs the VA police who stand accused of violations of law.

Originally, Mathis’ VA police illegally cited protesting veterans for trespassing.  When the case came to federal court in Los Angles, charges were dropped but the harassment, intimidation and spying continued.

For months, VA police followed vets around Los Angeles, cars screaming up and down city streets, areas where they have no jurisdiction whatsoever, and continually threatened and harassed vets.

The “surveillance” Ms. Beiter described took place on VA property and off.  Indications are that it may have included wiretapping, filming of veterans and staff in and around the facility, taping of conversations and certainly following veterans around the streets of Los Angeles, looking for potential terrorist and troublemakers.  Most closely watched, we find, were VA employees, police officers and doctors.  Some of them have come forward with horror stories.

At one point, Military Police, in uniform, were called and physically attacked the elderly veterans.  This was filmed, documented and an investigation shows that these “rouge” reservists were tied to something very strange, very insidious and very illegal.  All the protesting veterans wanted was to get housing built, housing described in the Grand Plan that is gainingapproval with groups all across California.  Instead, our investigators, including former FBI agents, find that possible irregularities of a more extreme nature exist.

A review of the answer to ACLU charges of First Amendment violation by VA employees showed a document of little legal relevence and rambling inconsistencies.  Attorney’s for the ACLU found the response “puzzling.”

When contacted on this subject, the Department of Veterans Affairs refused to comment.

WHISTLEBLOWERS AND REPORTS OF A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION FOR CORRUPTION

PURPLE HEART VETS CONFRONT SPY VAN

VA police have reported to us that there is an ongoing federal investigation into wrongdoing at the Los Angeles VA Medical Center.  We have been told that this investiationhas looked into systematic irregularities in handling of financing tied to use of veterans land for events.  Informants tell us that employees who cooperated with federal authorities in this investigation have been retaliated against and threatened.

The same US Attorney’s office defending Beiter and Mathis is said to be reviewing potential charges against a number of individuals involved in federal crimes tied to the use of veterans land.

Members of the West Los Angeles VA police report a total breakdown of leadership and discipline with efforts being made to stop employees leaking information to federal investigators and the press.

It is said that the dangerous confrontations with Old Guard veterans had little to do with VA security and much to do with stopping any questions from being asked about management practices tied to alleged financial abuses.  Police report a “climate of fear” surrounding the entire facility.

Along with allegation of misuse of funds, further reports of VA spying, not only on VA police but on VA physicians as well.  Complaints of systematic surveillance, reading of emails have been submitted to us by senior VA doctors.  They tell of broad opposition to Washington’s new programs to assist homeless veterans and PTSD sufferers, programs being derailed, mismanaged and sabatoged.  We have received more stories of retaliation against doctors including disciplinary action and extensive harassment.

With reports of “lost” and “recycled” medical records, poor standards of treatment and systematic patient abuse being made, the situation at the Veterans Affairs West Los Angeles Medical Center is particularly troubling.

Repeated requests through the Freedom of Information Act for financial records tied to revenues from lease and rental of veterans land and facilities have been refused by the Los Angeles Regional Veterans Affairs Office.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
