"left wing veterans organization" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters

"I don't know I, hope not. Things have changed so much who knows I obviously Democrats that's going to. Enhance their world view of Donald Trump. That's to back up everything. They already believe about him and Republicans will like US W-. Conservatives will say no way. Did he say that anybody who's been paying attention to what Donald Trump has said and the ways his life up until now wouldn't believe that he would say those things about the troops, which is funny that you say it'll Democrats will use that as an opportunity to you know it will bolster their world view of Donald. Trump as if Democrats have been. So pro veteran show military right now it probably will be we're seeing the the left already lean into it right? Like they're already trying to take advantage of it and you those left-wing veterans organizations who are on this. You know Tammy Duckworth who is kind of in the ring, for VP's of for military. Veteran, she's saying. She uses I mean sad as it is every other word of mouth is talking about her legs. I. I honestly I have said this report she's basically war hero right? Like she actually go through. I mean, it's her story legitimate, but she just keeps us. She's just like she's like well, all I would like to see Donald trump walk a mile in my legs. That's impossible. Pancake because he's got two of his own right doesn't need yours for one thing but she's really saying things like. I'll put my titanium legs against. All right like I I I should honor what like she's gone through the country and and you know much better person than I am for doing it but like. You have a limited like. She's done it like ten times. Think she needs to it I don't think it's working anymore. There was another There was another application that was made that he made a comment about amputees that he said like nobody wants to see that just and it's like what they I mean I? Mean Be Chiba. They had Madison Coffin on the convention he certainly is a wounded warrior that you know obviously president trump had no problem putting on the stage. How did he didn't he get? He heard an accident right and I think was an accident I think. It'd be wrong on that. But? Anyway. Yeah. I mean look he's been to Walter Reed he's been around look. This is just nonsense. Mask for Walter read right right. Even more war the math or the mask for the veteran. Yes he did look it's shocking. Anyone would change their vote on this and I don't even think that's the target. That's the important thing like you're you're saying like with the average American react to this. The answer that I think is no. The person WHO's trying trying to get to react to this is think of the most annoying person in your facebook feed that is constantly posting every dumb rumor about Donald Trump they want that. Person, to get to get a little bit more excited. So they go click donate to one of these sites. Bad is really the end of this entire thing. Now, the Atlantic is GonNa say well, we really did get those sources and who knows maybe they did I would not be surprised if they had four people who are adjacent to the administration in some way that are backing this up because I don't know that they're really creating them whole cloth probably somebody told them the story, but they didn't do basic fact checking. Seems very clear that they did not get even the most basic fact checking done on it and I don't I don't expect any more out of the Atlantic that's for sure and it is before we go to break pat it is. It is something that you know you hear these stories and then you kind of can't blame the guy for constantly you know not trusting the people around him making the comments that he's made in the. Past. When you see the track record of all of these people who apparently he thinks that he can trust and then they go out and either betray him or flat out lie about him. There's been a lot of those in a lot of them have written books and I paranoid too. Yeah. He should totally be paranoid you should be more paranoid I mean the fact that like frigging what's her? What's her face from his stupid Reality Show frigging recording conversations and they allow that to happen. We also have the same thing happening with Melania's best friend now is coming out with the book former best friend. Her best friend and my closest confidants. WHO's in the administration working with the with the I mean, you know Jason Again to the administration working with the first lady and they apparently got into a fight and over you know like the the inauguration and now she's coming out with her own book. But again with recorded conversations Mary Trump's book had they recorded from Donald Trump's sister like Hell's going with his family and this administration and this government they're all out of control. I would be totally paranoid if I were him and he should be more paranoid. I, mean I've talked to people who've been in the administration there at least was a time that they were like everyone was putting their phones and baskets outside these meeting rooms. I don't know if that's slipped to I. Don't know what's going on but I mean it is. It's partially just a function of everybody having this technology and being easily accessible it's hard to stop but still needs to be a top priority. He's only paranoid because everybody's following. Tighter. Right. Does have a point In that regard we've got more coming up I want to thank our sponsor this segment, Laurel Springs So I some of you maybe you may think you're done with all of this home schooling thing There are a lot of us who are not, and if you are in that boat, you're one of those people who you're still. Happening to keep your kid at home, you're still having to learn from home.

"Stupor. Glenn on the glove back broke up. Triple 8 70 70 easy cake. The Atlantic. Has written, uh, just an amazing article on President Trump, of course, making him look It might make him look as bad as anything I've read because because supposedly he's saying super disrespectful things about American soldiers who fought in World War one World War two and are buried in France. Now, I don't believe this article. I don't believe this for a second when he was in France in 2018. He was supposed to go to one of the one of the cemeteries where the American soldiers are entered. And, uh, supposedly, it was raining. And so the helicopter couldn't fly. Now, they say that's not true. That was just an excuse. He used And then he said the Secret Service refused to drive him there. And they're saying that's not true. But what they're saying is true is that President Trump said. Why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. I don't believe for a second that Donald Trump said that About American soldiers. Buried in France. Ah! God. Yeah, just there's no way and then they try to Try to spin this as C. There's evidence that he's done this because look how he talked about John McCain. Well, John McCain was an adversary. For one thing he didn't like John McCain. John McCain didn't like him. They both said Really bad things about each other. Yes, and Trump. Obviously famously, at the beginning of the campaign, you know, said that, you know, why is he such a hero? You know what was it it was. I respect people who don't like people who don't get caught or don't get captured, you know, and he went back and forth of McCain said all sorts of things about McCain. That's Donald Trump is capable of saying something bad about any individual. He doesn't like the idea that Donald Trump is sitting around, saying Generally speaking, troops that have died in service Don't buy are losers is I just don't losers and suckers. Now total on thing I do know about and we all know about. I think Donald Trump is he loves his country and he loves the military. Yeah, There's no way he would have said this about American troops. It's completely and look, he obviously throws things out a lot that are not necessarily the greatest idea. Noah's Faras gets in trouble get himself in trouble. He creates a lot of his own problems. We all know this. But I mean the idea that behind the scenes he's sitting here bashing troops is losers is completely inconsistent. With with everything we know about Donald Trump. I understand that he calls kind of everybody losers and this is going to be believable to anyone on the left. Who already hates him, right? And you know the Atlantic. The The biting campaign is already leaning into this. They're doing it. They did, eh? A conference call with, you Know, Left wing Veterans organization. Tammy Duckworth's was on the call. Always. You know they're going to try to leave. We're going to Tammy Duckworth's now out there saying I will I fought for this country. I am not a loser. You know, All this is going to happen now is going to act as if this is true. It's ridiculous. There's been multiple people who have come out on the record and say This is not true from the administration. But there's no way to disprove that. Someone said something in private when you don't tell us who's You're not giving us the source of this comment, right? You're not telling us who said it. You're not telling us enough detail to figure out who said it and everyone who was there that we know was there saying he didn't say it. So I don't see what you can take out of this in reality, But the difference is, of course, the left is depending on something that isn't real right there. They're going to try to just Promote him as some true painter, which Just come on. I mean, you think the military is falling for this? Do you think our troops are falling for this? You're in the military out there. Are you falling for this? I can't imagine. Most people who are trying to make their mind up are going to be fooled by this. It's really going to be more of a left wing fundraising. Situation than anything else because there's no Come on, come on. We honestly if you would have ran this story with someone who was very anti military in that's a Democrat. In in our government. I wouldn't believe it. It alone. Donald Trump, who's like main thing he's trying to do over the past couple years, have a giant military parade and watching to see the guy like of all things, you're going to accuse him of being anti troop. It's just silly. Just a silly plus, He's increased their budgets. He's increased the PE multiple times. I mean the guy his actions, and we said this a million times don't pay attention to what he says pay attention to what he does. And what he has done regarding the military has been incredibly positive. He's he's really tried to restore the military toe where it needs to be in where where it should be. Because Barack Obama did everything he could to tear down the military. And did you do Defund them. S Oh, yeah, It's really hard to believe that he would call them losers and suckers. They say he has a lot of fear He doesn't see heroism in fighting. Several observers told me that Trump is deeply anxious about dying or being disfigured, and this worry manifests itself as discussed for those who have suffered..

Can you come up with one person who could back it up? Four unnamed sources like do we even know if they had four unnamed sources at this point with the way the media is acting right now I would question whether they even had anyone. Now maybe they have someone maybe they have four people who say I don't know because you could easily have four people would make it up right this is the problem with unnamed sources we don't know. Who these people are. We don't know if they just hated trump from the beginning. We don't know any of it but I mean, you can get some value from unnamed sources in certain circumstances just like, Hey, this guy trashes the military when you're when you're not around listening, he's trashing the military saving a news story, right?

But at least it's consistent with some of the stuff he's done in his life. And you turn this around. You know, like on every topic, you turn this around. And make it about Barack Obama if he started saying that Barack Obama said these things behind closed doors and then acted as if it was absolute fact and spread it around. They'd be calling you racist. And irresponsible and a conspiracy theorist and everything else that they could possibly think of Just another election tactic. It ISS and I don't know. It just isn't Does this stuff, move anybody at this point? I feel probably those. Probably those who hate him are going to hate him even more. And like we're not going to believe it. But I so you're probably right. I think you've hit on that. Exactly right. That is that. This is a tactic that is largely aimed to to suck money out of the left. This is not a tactic necessarily aimed at you who might be on the right or you who might be Undecided or maybe leaning one way or the other. This is this is the suck money out of you know the the typical resistance member that you know the person who's tweeting every day about how bad Donald Trump is. It's to remove more money from them, which in that sense, I don't necessarily mind. Lie and take all their money..

"left wing veterans organization" Discussed on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA

"I'm your host Eric Dane vote. Vets is a left-wing veteran organization who have been pretty open about their dislike of all things related to President Trump. Of course, is there a group comprised of veterans much of their focus has been on military and veteran issues specifically the VA after filing a lawsuit a few months ago to challenge the legality of Robert Wilkie being appointed as acting VA secretary a position he now holds without the acting modifier. They've now filed one based on the recent propublica report alleging that marvel entertainment CEO, Ike Pearl mutter lawyer, Marc Sherman, and Dr Bruce Moskowitz all members of the president's mar-a-lago country club had outsized influence on the VA. I sat down with hill vets founder and CEO Justin Brown. One of the most well connected. Vets on Capitol Hill to get his thoughts on the lawsuit. Specifically it what he says maybe larger. Issues raised by the propublica report her stuff, I am not an attorney. You're not gonna see me in the drudges the courtroom following this case with with that caveat. You know, I'm going to be surprised if there's any real substance that ends up going anywhere in this lawsuit. I certainly think that there are a number of very real invalid concerns with the information that has come out in the propublica. Article by by Isaac aren't store, highlighting some of these actions who have you know, if everything in there is true have had a very I think outsize influence around the department of veterans affairs without the knowledge of, you know, particularly number of people who are very very involved in the space. And I think some of the you know in reading that article too. I mean, you can pretty quickly come to the conclusion that, you know, it's it's very clear some of these people, you know, again, if everything in their true, actually don't know what they're talking about with regards to veteran policy and the concern in there. And there's there's a particular story. You know, we're we're where I think it's like the marvel guy has concerns that you know, there are systematic failures at VA because. You know, his tennis buddy or something to that effect? Her son. Couldn't get his records the secretary. He comes back and says that yeah, that's actually not our problem. And he's like, well, it's indicative of a broader systematic problem, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But I think there are a few issues here. One is it seems clear that there were a number of VA officials to the level of a United States Secretary. A cabinet official were reporting directly to somebody that nobody else had any clue and the general public of what was going on here. It does seem clear that there was a pattern of this over the course of three secretaries essentially having to go what I might call kiss, the rain. You know, and and and get sign off and felt that these three individuals had enough influence to it. If not maybe ultimately, get them fired at least to really make their job painful. Right. Like had been made clear that the they apparently they had the president's here. What I think is maybe more interesting than some of the allegations that are put forward by about vets recently or some other ones that have been raised. By congress. And I think congress will continue to look into this in terms of you know. You had a huge Turner contract going on. Right. The electron of that earlier this morning. Yeah. Yeah. And and and you know, what are some of the locations they ran and how are these individuals? Who were you know, a contractors? Be not employees of any form because you do run into contracting lookout. He's about who's talking about what should people be talking about these things? And should they actually have information that is, you know, frankly, government owned and or owned by that that third party company, and what are some of the ramifications thereof? I think there potentially could be some some legitimate issues that come out of situations like that. But but I think we can really go down the rabbit hole of you know, where was this wrong? And where was this this right at the end of the day? I think it's a massive trust issue for this administration that that that that they need to deal with in terms of it was seen as a very mistrustful action whereby you kind of have these you know, and people want to use the word shadowy. But the fact is secret or you know, what I mean, certainly not transparent communications going on. Very very senior level that seemed to be at the exclusion of particularly your stakeholders, right? Your traditional veterans service organizations all the people that are having conventions. I mean, they're they're bringing veterans from across the nation to pull, you know, their folks together to you know, AC what what are the problems that? You guys are having right now. And how can we help you fix them by and take that knowledge and pass it to the secretary of the even have the secretary of the VA flying to Orlando, Florida. I don't know if you can give out tomorrow Lago before after. But, but but the point being, you know, those are the conduit s- those folks have worked really really hard to engage the veteran population and come up with I think sound policy proposals, or at least try to be legitimate honest brokers. You know, historically, the United States Secretary of the department of veterans affairs. So certainly there I think there's always been a history of probably United States, presidents and secretaries. Right. They're going to have advisers that they'll reach out to call and say, hey, what are your thoughts on XYZ? I think we're the mistrustful action specific to this is is that it started to look like a legitimate. Chain of command. If you will does that make sense. That's that's that's where the problem really lies in. It wasn't so much that you know, we're talking to other people were consulting other people the appearance the appearance that's being put forward here. The perception that is being put forward is that there were there was legitimate authority to the point where United States secretaries three felt the need to engage these individuals for whatever purpose. And so again, I think what you have here is a real trust issue. And I think the administration needs to get on top of it. I mean, I think you still have you know, you've got a number of staff changes that were were just announced there's a huge amount of concern with regards to some of the individuals who are in the administration who've been seen as kind of really shaking things up trying to make things hard. You know, you had a number of employees getting you know? Re detailed. If you will you've had a lot of I think questionable moves that. You know, some people are calling, you know, political. I think you need to get on top of all those things and try to try to regain some trust. We're speaking with Justin Brown, founder and CEO of hill vets organization that does many things including keeping an eye on what's happening on Capitol Hill, and helping to get more veterans onto congressional staffs one of the people who it appears had to as you said kiss the ring or as I will say kiss the 0 gauntlet since we're talking about the CEO of marvel entertainment hike, Pearl monitor their one of those people who is acting secretary Peter Aurora who it looks like as part of those changes that you were mentioning over at the VA as far as the leadership structure acting secretary. Now, he's going to be a senior adviser over at the VA. You've also got Pamela powers. I believe is retired from the United States Air Force becoming the VA chief of staff you knowing how things work over at the VA to some extent in knowing a little bit about how things work in. Politics is this normal when a new person comes in for them to rearrange who's around them. And I've seen some people like why are they changing everything at the top of the VA? Of course, people at the same time are saying he needs to fix the VA doesn't he need to have the people. He thinks are the right people in those positions to do it. How are you looking at the changes at the top over there, the restructuring if you will sure? Well, I would say I would say everything about this situation is unique in comparison to every other secretary that I've come in into this position. I mean, you as you know, as we've talked about there is a history right now of secretary Wilkie being on Air Force One potentially talking to the president to say, hey, I've got a you know, I am gonna be thirty over via. You know, and I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna clear house of potentially some folks who'd been considered, and we talked about this is kind of a game of thrones issue previously. Right. You had the Schulkin. I'ts getting hit by the Aurora keys. And.

"left wing veterans organization" Discussed on Newsradio 830 WCCO

"Eric Dane vote. Vents is a left-wing veteran organization who have been pretty open about their dislike of all things related to President Trump. Of course, is there a group comprised of veterans much of their focus has been on military and veteran issues specifically the VA after filing a lawsuit a few months ago to challenge the legality of Robert Wilkie being appointed as acting VA secretary a position he now holds without the acting modifier. They've now filed one based on the recent propublica report alleging that marvel entertainment CEO, Mike, Pearl mutter lawyer, Marc Sherman, and Dr Bruce Moskowitz all members of the president's mar-a-lago country club have had outsized influence on the VA. I sat down with hill vets founder and CEO Justin Brown. One of the most well-connected vets on Capitol Hill to get his thoughts on the lawsuits specifically in what he says. Has maybe larger issues raised by the propublica report first off, I am not an attorney. You're not gonna see me in the dredges of the courtroom following this case with with that caveat. You know, I'm going to be surprised if there's any real substance that ends up going anywhere in this lawsuit. I certainly think that there are a number of very real invalid concerns with the information that has come out in the public article by by Isaac aren't store, highlighting some of these connections. Who have you know, if everything in? There is true have had a very I think outsize influence around the department of veterans affairs without the knowledge of, you know, particularly number of people who are very very involved in the space, and I think some of the. You know in reading that article too. I mean, you can pretty quickly come to the conclusion that it's very clear some of these people, you know, again, if everything in their true, actually don't know what they're talking about with regards to veteran policy, and, you know, the concern, you know, in there, and there's there's a particular story where where where I think it's like, the marvel guy has concerns that, you know, there are systematic failures at VA because, you know, his tennis buddy or something to that effect. Her son. Couldn't get his records. The secretary comes back and says that yeah, that's actually not our problem. And he's like, well, it's indicative of a broader systematic problem, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But I think there are a few issues here. One is it seems clear that there were a number of BA officials to the level of a United States. Secretary cabinet official were reporting directly to somebody that nobody else had any clue and the general public of what's going on here. It does seem clear that there was a pattern of this over the course of three secretaries essentially having to go what I might call kiss the ring. You know, and and get sign off and felt that these three individuals had enough influence to if not maybe ultimately, get them fired at least a Torelli make their job painful. Right. Like had been made clear that they you know, apparently, they had the president's here. What I think is maybe more interesting than some of the allegations that are put forward by about vets recently or some other ones that have been raised. By congress. I think congress will continue to look into this in terms of you know, you had a huge Turner contract going on right?.
