VA Hospital: Trump Picture taken down!!!!

Say What???  On Fox News this morning there was a story of a Congressman Brian Mast noticed that there was not a portrait of President Trump or the Sec of VA at the West Palm Beach VA Hospital.  He asked several people why, and got a wide range of replies.  Including that Trump was not their President, and many that could not be repeated on TV. 

So, the good Congressman, an Army Vet, brought portraits of President Trump and Sec Shulkin to the VA, and put them up.  After all the pictures were taken, the Hospital Administrator arrived, and took them down.  Why?  "They could not authenticate the photos and they have to follow protocol." 

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/03/15/va-hospital-removes-trump-shulkin-portrait...

This is completely ridicules, but has become SOP.  I have written about my 7 year battle with the VA to get a diagnosis of a progressive condition.  I went to a local University hospital to see if they could make a diagnosis.  I was told, "out of respect to the doctors at VA, we will not start at square one."  I was told that if I could get VA to release the disks of the tests, they will review them.  But that is all they will do. 

What does that mean?  There are doctors that work both hospitals.  They know that if the University Hospital had made a diagnosis, then VA would still be on the hook to pay for the treatment.  So, no diagnosis, not treatment.  I have heard that there is a policy at that particular VA hospital, that someone of a lower priority has to suffer through a condition for 1 year before they will address it.  For the first six year, my clinic refused to recognize the condition.  When they finally did, they passed me off to the ENT Clinic.  In September of last year, they did a MRI.  I was told it showed nothing.  But at my last ENT visit, I was referred to Neurology, and told that I only needed to follow-up with ENT if needed.  Basically, the doctor was saying they could not figure out what the problem was.  Yet, less then a day later, an appointment for ENT for next September appeared on my schedule.  Why the change?  September is one year from the MRI.  The fact that the local University hospital refused to do anything, tells me that they know what the problem is, and are keeping it from me. 

But when all else fails, call in reinforcements.  I have gotten my Congressman's office to do an investigation.  Also, the local news has reported that the VA's IG office has started investigating this VA hospital.  So, we will see if anything happens.  Until then, I am in pain, and unable to work. 

Not too long ago, a friend of the family passed away from cancer.  He was going to the same VA hospital.  They had him on Chemo, but was refusing to give him the medications to counter the effects of the treatment.  The treatment was hurting him so much, that he finally just stopped going for the treatments.  After he passed away, the VA hospital attempted to withhold his burial benefits.  They had to get the Congressman to get that straightened out also. 

Personally. I think that they need to fire half the people at VA, and start over.  If that leaves them short handed, I am available to work!!!

Your VA hospital has people guilty of criminal activity, probably authorized by the former muzzie-n-chief.

That Administrator should be fired immediately as well as all the staff who made the disparaging remarks. The VA is federal property an' the display of the President's an' VA Secretay's portraits is mandated by protocol.

This particular VA hospital was on FOX news, just after Marine 13 started this thread.  The unemployment line is probably growing.

Never underestimate the power of the propaganda of the communist party!  Too many Americans believe the words of the democrat party are LAW!  They actually believe the country is better for it and they believe this so firmly, they will fight to protect it.

It is all but impossible to change this thinking.

It sounds to me as though the hospital is doing a whole lot more than just taking a couple of pictures down.  They sure aren't taking care of the vets---so where's all that money going?????

I didn't want to say it, but since you did, OC,
yeah, my suspicion is that the left has packed the
VA over at least my lifetime. I saw in in the 60's when i was in school. Don't get me wrong, there are many fine people i the VA. But the pay and benefits are too much for the politicians to overlook.
Civil servants are not supposed to be political.

I am afraid this is possibly fake news conservative wing. I work in a federal building and there is no trump photo.  There wasn't one for Obama either for about a year. There is an official photo that has to be taken and put up and literally like the frame has to be a certain kind. Yes it is stupid but I guess it is for the best so that all Federal buildings have the same photos and it looks the same.

I don't want any time spent on this. No doubt the VA needs to have half their worker's "reassigned" but not for this photo issue.

Wrong!  Fake news is a liberal thing. 

The Congressman was told that even when the official portraits arrive, they won't be displayed.  So, the Congressman made unofficial copies from the VA website, and personally hung them.  As I stated in my original post, the hospital administrator took them down because they were not "official".  That still did not explain what the Congressman was told before making, and hanging, the unofficial portraits.  That Trump was not their President.  Follow-up coverage has stated that pressure from Fox News' coverage has caused the administrator to reverse his decision, and will rehang the unofficial portraits until the official ones arrive.

Viewer responses to the story has revealed similar responses at VA hospitals in Baltimore and Philadelphia.  At one hospital, the questioner was told not to make waves, and another they claimed that they are going to impeach Trump.  So, why waste money on a portrait?

During Obama's eight years in office, the media was full of stories of public officials being fired for comments in support of traditional marriage.  Yet I have not seen, or read about, any Federal Government being fired for claiming that "Trump was not their President" while on duty.  I personally think that any Federal employee making such a statement should be fired immediately!  I also believe that every Government should take an oath stating they will support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and support the duly elected President of the United States.  These employees should take the oath when hired, and every time there is a new President.  Anyone refusing to take the oath should be escorted out the door.

Civil servants are not supposed to be political.

As of 2008, there were 22,461,691  federal employees and 250,785 part time.  Probably a lot more than that, now--remember the 6000agents Obywon hired for the IRS?
That means they are a captive audience ripe for the political picking---and Obutthead picked!
