Due to the patriotic intent and learned duty even in 70, then again 2001 I was one of many who have participated in the war against terroism by supporting GWOT.  This allowed a welcomed salary with a price,  abscence from family and love ones.  Ironically although now unemployed I get to finally enjoy retirement with family and love ones.  I hope for many good years if my TBI experience doesn’t progress onto early dementia, alzheimer or parkinson’s.  I reluctantly have to participate in an unplanned early retirement do to the effects of the injury resulting in my TBI.  Yet, fortunately,  I recall meeting and speaking to the brave young Americans who were deployed to defend our freedom.  They were bold and brave.  Each worked day I would be reminded of my Airborne days waiting on Green Ramp after JM check and awaiting boarding of the C130 with my fellow “Brothers”.  The soldiers of today are true heros and the civilians who support them are the same.  Thank you Barry.  Do to my direct and indirect affiliation thru my prior military service and Civilian employment my income originates from federal pay and deposited in WF formally Wachovia.  The last 6-8 yrs I have considered change now with this info there is anticipated change.  I am not seeking any tears or compassion only TBI awareness, understanding of need for PTSD treatment for our troops and Supporting our troops.  A thank you to the Vets and those Civilians that make the decision to help our troops, sailors, AirForce and Marines.

Hello,

There is so much ignorance and stupidity and just plain bad writing in these comments.

I would highly recommend doing a little research, and picking up a grammar book, before posting on a subject of which you know absolutely nothing about.

I will not stoop to the level of arguing with individual trolls, suffice to say I feel that all of you haters are in need of a good ass whoopin!

Three years as an overworked, under-appreciated contractor in Iraq and now a full time disabled contractor…to come home and listen to the drivel from UN-educated morons…

@ Mark Mc
Grammer = effects of TBI stateside not related to Contractor War Zone activity and utilization of 1 finger, 1 hand, 1 brain (damaged).

stupidity of content =  interpretation by some yet others voiciing their opinion in a forum of practicing Freedom of Speech (that our troops and contractors and families have sacrifced for us. And appreciated by this commentator.

Thank you for your sacrifice and contribution.

I have avoided and hesitated my comments for many times due to my injuries, recoveries and avoidance of pity.  Self pity or woe is nonproductive, but awreness helps with understanding, monetary support, thus rehab.  Having or seeking pity for me is not the intent. I only hope our Wounded Warriors will benefit and heal.  Many (word drop)  ...oh yeah ,  experience negative effects of misunderstanding that is interperted as uncaring from command, spouses, family and public.  The older troops drive on.  The younger react…well?... with what the young do.  Thus instead of healing, recovery, and moving on.  The Action is negative with negative results when they return.  In combat I assume they survive.    Just my opinion,  probably too late, too little but as this Article has done bringing to light what others, have indured.

I hope the War Zone Contractors will never forget that Obama, Bush and their DOL and DOJ have also committed treason and deadly organized crimes by protecting insurance companies that are committing identical crimes in five different types of insurance.

ProPublica wrote this about DBA War Zone insurance :

Labor officials can recommend cases for prosecution to the Justice Department–but have only done so once in the past two decades, according to Labor officials.”

“CNA withheld portions of the investigators’ findings when it submitted the claims to the Labor Department, court records show.”

Here’s proof insurance companies are removing medical records in two more types of insurance :

The following quotes were written by the Honorable Judges from the 6th Circuit in the case of Wanda Glenn verses Metlife

“This inappropriately selective consideration of Glenn’s medical record was compounded by the fact that the occupational skills analyst and the independent medical consultant were apparently not provided with full information from Dr. Patel on which to base their conclusions.”

Please remember WFAA-TV wrote this about Workers Comp claims :

“Some insurance companies send peer review doctors medical files “stripped” of records important to the possible approval of workers’ comp claims.”

So ... you have records removed from injured War Zone Contractors claims, disability claims, and workers comp claims !!

DOL Secretary Solis “is responsible” for protecting the disability claimants and the injured contractors !!

The DOJ should investigate the suicides of the injured workers mentioned below, but DOL and DOJ have done nothing after reviewing volumes of evidence I’vesubmitted.

WFAA - TV also wrote :

“a remarkable number of Texans committed suicide because they could no longer endure the pain caused by their injuries and they had been repeatedly turned down for worker’s comp care.”

I desperately pray that the War Zone Contractors will never forget that the crimes that have destroyed many of your lives are also destroying injured workers and disabled Americans, and Obama and Bush’s DOL and DOJ have willfully protected these crimes !!

The U.S. Government is also protecting huge money laundering crimes !!

Wachovia Bank laundered $378 billion for Mexican drug cartels who are responsible for 35,000 murders. No one was prosecuted by Obama !!

Last week these murderers disemboweled and hung a woman from a bridge and dumped 35 bodies on a busy road in front of a mall while horrified drivers sped by !!

After you read this comment please go to http://www.obamadrugmurdersconnection.blogspot.com to see more evidence I filed in Court.

You’ll also see how multiple corporations including AIG committed crimes repeatedly but no one ever gets prosecuted !!!!!

Obama received $30,000 from MetLife VP James Lipscomb, and $2,600 from attorney Bruce Yannett. Obama also took hundreds of thousands more dollars from MetLife and the law firm named Debevoise & Plimpton LLP that employs attorney Mr. Yannett ! Lipscomb and Yannett signed MetLife’s third Non Prosecution agreement for committing multiple frauds and rigging bids to increase sales of disability policies;

BUT when sick and dying patients file claims on these policies Obama’s DOL/DOJ will do nothing about doctors paid by MetLife ignoring brain lesions, Multiple Sclerosis, cardiac conditions of many patients, and a foot a new mother broke in five places, as evidenced by quotes from numerous federal Court Judges.

Here are quotes that Obama’s DOL and DOJ reviewed and then refused to take action.

U.S. District Judge Richard Enslen wrote :

“Metlife and its henchmen should appreciate that such conduct may itself precipitate the suicide death of a person who has placed implicit trust in their organization. This record is an open indictment of MetLife’s practices and treatment of the mentally-ill and long-term disability benefits.”

U.S. Judge Jennifer Guerm wrote these quotes in Wright verses Metlife :

“MetLife relied on clearly erroneous findings of fact in making its benefit determination. MetLife’s review of Plaintiff’s appeal consistently omitted or misrepresented relevant information in several ways. On October 18, 2004, Dr. Barnett wrote a letter to MetLife stating:

“I am gravely disturbed by your misrepresentation of the facts with regard to my discussion with your independent physician consultant. Mr. Wright has ongoing cardiac disease including ischemia and loss of function due to previous myocardial infarctions.”

You can see more Judges quotes by going to : http://www.deadlyorganizedcrimes.blogspot.com

I desperately pray that the War Zone Contractors will never forget that the crimes that have destroyed many of your lives are also continuing to destroy injured workers and disabled Americans, while Obama and Bush’s DOL and DOJ have willfully protected these crimes !!

IS ANYONE LISTENING

Oct. 9, 2011, 12:49 a.m.

There are extreme issues with how DBA claims have been handled. For instance there was an employee who was hurt in Afghan and after seeing the medics the employee was told several times the threat of losing their job. However, the employee protested and so was flown to Dubia to be seen by a doctor the company (KBR) arranged for. Yet the employee had to pay for travel, hotel fees, etc.. The doctors care was at best minimal and the employee was repeatedly asked if an injury had been sustained prior (the answer no). The doctors submitted a report that minimized the injury. Later the employee discovered that under the DBA they had rights and the physician was to be of their choice. When the employee inquired about such to KBR/HR suddenly there was a loss of paperwork, and the doctor recommended physical therapy. In short the employee returned to the states and the insurance company (AIG) that was to be so helpful; began to prolong the medical care process. (Approved the medical care but refused payment for such, then lost paperwork or continued to not receive paperwork sent by physician, always was about to make a decision on payment but never did, changed adjusters,etc.. Oh and the local DOL in Houston; a laughing stock at best. The person assigned to the claim was unreachable by phone except for three or so times; also he didn’t have any information and the insurance company conviently claimed to not have any so please send some. Even after scheduled surgery the insurance company waited right until the week of and the adjuster said, Didnt get any notice about a surgery. However the employee was informed by the attorney that represented both (AIG & KBR) that most likely their doctor would find nothing wrong.. Such a statement was made during a meeting at the local DOL in the presence of the DOL adjuster…
As noted this story could go on for quite sometime(it was severly shortened due to litigation, details and relevency.)

However, some of the misguidance that KBR & AIG practice is the procedure/form of reporting the incident. In general the incidents were reported and not in full; i.e. (there are forms which can be printed from the DOL website and filled out by the supervisor & employee and/or company representative at the time of reporting or shortly thereafter) yet KBR doesnt practice using such forms initially which benefit the insurance company because the form would call for signatures, dates, times, who, what, when, where, etc.. So by not using the forms the injury is reported in general (i.e.) only dates, employee name and what was injured.. Such reports leave the window of opportunity open for the insurance comapny to almost always say they need more information.
Another tactic the insurance company used was taxes. Yes thats right taxes.  KBR’s (Iraq/Afghan) U.S. employees were informed of new tax laws that implied any monies over the amount of $85,000 had to be filed with the IRS. The example used was if an employee made $90,000 then only required to file $5,000 as taxable because $85,000 was non taxable. However the insurance company ask claimants to sign papers giving permission to obtain tax reports from the last 10 years or more. So an employee making $70,000 a year overseas never filed taxes on such because its not required, however AIG uses that as a toll to make a decision in determinig back wages etc.. So the employee is literally screwed.
Another tactic is denial, however if a few attorneys began to pay attention to the denial dates vs the date the claim was filed vs the date information was reportedly sent/reveiwed vs the day the adjuster visited with claimants; then proof would show many claims were denied prior to evidence to support claims, reveiw, etc..
Oh last but not least, the most practiced tactic is the insurance company files a motion/letter with DOL to suspend claimants benefits until the claimant cooperates, however the case remains as active in the insurance companies database; yet any doctor visits, appointments, etc.. will verbally be denied by the insurance company. Therefore the illusion that the insurance company has made efforts and is open to efforts of helping the claimant when in reality the claimant is being denied due diligence.. (past DOL letters, insurance e-mails, etc.. carefully examined will proove such in many cases)..
Yet if any attorney really desired to prove the blatant disregard then a court order for the insurance company to produce all relevant documents including internal e-mails concerning their client(s) would provide more than a notion. LOL. (just a thought)

  Because GOD has blessed, there are attorneys willing to stand.

Congratulation on your settlement Anyone Listening.  This whole issue is about money and minimize pay out.  But in the end the corporates get relief due to tax cuts and loop holes,  government gets a free pass,  they leave it upto the corporates and fail to enforce the law.  The injured contractor left holding the bag.  Here’s wishing success in the law suit.  For me and my situation went from bad to worse.  I stand to lose 100,000 along with continued employment and livelyhood.  I not only have feelings for the war time contractor,  but gratitude.  They took up the slack that the government gave up for a volunteer force by ending the draft.  The government should stand behind their laws and uphold them.  The IRS expects payment.  I predict the next conflict will involve reestablishing the draft   because it appears the aftermath of this countries adventures jaunt is going to be very costly.  Just by the Vietnam Vets reaching pension age, Agent Orange survivors, 120,000 to 200,000 TBI survivors thatmore than 80% will be reclassified with PTSD, AND 50,000 to be let go who will also present to the VA for assistance and 50% disability.  Its my opinion.

In honor of those who didn’t make it:  The truth is I didn’t see the setup and so I got shot four or five times in Udorn, Thailand.

Now the kicker:  Cheap shells.  Only one of them penetrated my leather vest..once I realized that “THUD THUD THUD” wasn’t killing me, I started killing.

lolll…no, it wasn’t funny…wasn’t nice.  Didn’t leave any survivors.  I didn’t have a choice - to my analysis of the situation - and I always do the same thing when I don’t have a choice.

That “Kill or be Killed” theme as heroism is…it blows.  You won’t sleep…you’ll wake up scrubbing their long-gone blood off of your hands.  You’ll have stupid dreams about your kid meeting their kid and having grandbabies…

Don’t kill.

Steve,

I’m sorry to hear about your injuries and I agree the Republican leaders are and have been very treasonoius for a long time.

I hope you’ll understand the reason I often point out that Obama is treasonous too is proven by his DOL’s refusal to hold the insurance companies accountable in War Zone cases and four other types of insurance. Obama’s DOL is absoluetly protecting the insurance companies as they destroy many lives, and Bush’s DOL did the same.

You can see how Obama and Bush have allowed insurance companies to violate laws in five types of insurance by going to http://www.treasonevidence.blogspot.com

You can see how Obama prosecuted no one at Wachovia when they laundered $378 billion for murderous Mexican cartels by going to http://www.seekingindictments.blogspot.com

And you can see links to the official government documents that verify the massive corporate crimes that Obama and Bush did not prosecute by going to http://www.obamadrugmurdersconnection.blogspot.com and looking at Part Two and Exhibits B and C. In most cases the fines the corporations paid are a small percentage of the profits from the crimes they committed.

Not to beat a dead horse too death, please bare with me.  First we have alot of heros in America and even though I truely incurred a raw deal it is nothing compared to thos that have given their all in support of GWOT.  My update: I , my family and the government lost.  Even my lawyer lost out.  Him 30 K, the wife 20 K and Govt 780,000.00 .  The big lost is to the tax payers.  The amount in question was 100,000.00 based on who’s at fault me the pedestrian or the operator of the 4000 lb vehicle that occupied the same spot where I was,  even though clearly a pedestrian crossing warning sign was present.  My case is slightly different,  as a gov’t employee was dictated by DOJ to bring law suit against the Insurance Company, State Farm,  which by the jest of this article my case was lost before I was struck.  In Summary the Judge denied continuation of proceedings.  I did walk away with my life and a new outlook at things which I intend to keep positive.  Yet, the world is so negative.  The Insurance Company won here and taxpayer’s lost.

ibsteve2u

Oct. 11, 2011, 2:15 p.m.

@Barry:  Two things…

First, I really shouldn’t go to gun raffles and drink a lot of beer with a bunch of hardcores…the train of thought that leaves me circling in gives me a big mouth; something I’m not supposed to have.

Secondly, succumbing to the argument that Obama is bad/worse/whatever is, in my estimation, falling for a diversionary attack.  To quote myself from someplace else:  Sure, he’s not the chisel I’d like to have for the job, but doing nothing is not an option.  Lacking a chisel, I will whale on a screwdriver to get the job done.

Obama is not ideal; his vision of politics includes satiating all of the players to include those who most oppress the American people (such as those players who are so well delineated in your lists).

But in the end we must all bear responsibility for Obama and others like him; we allowed our political system to be corrupted by money.  Until we fix that little problem, Obama is the best we can hope for.  Until we have a better tool, he is our sole resource.

So hammering on him in a way that doesn’t - that isn’t intended to - accomplish the job of resurrecting that which America stands for?  Counter-productive…self-defeating.

Barry Schmittou

Oct. 11, 2011, 3:16 p.m.

Hey Steve,

Thanks for responding.

I greatly appreciate that you are trying to “accomplish the job of resurrecting that which America stands for”

Your comments show your dedication to justice and Democracy, and that is why I wanted to explain to you why I have problems with both Obama and Bush’s protection of deadly corporate crimes.

That was my only reason for my last post, I would never use a “diversionary attack” as you mentioned.

I do believe you are an important spiritual power for good and that is why I would like to take time to futher explain my reasons a little more. I also appreciate you sharing your personality in some of your comments.

In the future I will probably just post my feelings about Obama without explanation because I feel an urgent need to spend all the time I can resurrecting the justice the traitors in both parties have destroyed (in my opinion)

In my own way I am trying to “accomplish the job of resurrecting that which America stands for”

I filed a complaint that led to the indictment of State Senator John Ford. I am filing documents in Federal Court hoping if we ever see justice Bush and Obama will be indicted for a series of crimes including allowing insurance companies to violate laws in five types of insurance as seen at http://www.treasonevidence.blogspot.com

You can also see how Obama prosecuted no one at Wachovia when they laundered $378 billion for murderous Mexican cartels by going to http://www.seekingindictments.blogspot.com

Bush has a lot on Non Prosecutions of corporations too

Steve, until about eight years ago I was very assertive in proclaiming Bush and the leaders of the Republican party to be some of the most evil people in the U.S.

Now I know that Obama’s administration is also very evil, and I do not like having the lesser of two very evils controlling our government.

While Obama leads fake prayers on TV, his psychopathic Directors allow doctors paid by his campaign contributors at MetLife to ignore life threatening medical conditions including Brain lesions and Multiple Sclerosis, cardiac conditions of many patients, and a foot that a new mother broke in 5 places.

Multiple Judges prove MetLife is also very fond of endangering Psychological claimants lives !!

The quotes can be seen at the following website :

http://www.deadlyorganizedcrimes.blogspot.com

After seeing all the evidence, On January 26, 2011 Obama’s DOL Director of Participant Response Ms. Sharon Watson sent a letter from Washington saying :

“As we previously indicated, we take the allegations you have made that MetLife has engaged in a pattern of fraudulent activities regarding your claim and other participants’ claims very seriously and have taken the information under advisement.”

Ms. Watson closed by saying :

“At this time, there is nothing more EBSA can do for you regarding your claim.”

It took me four years to get the DOL to even acknowledge and respond to the evidence I submitted.

Steve, I know you have some awareness of my evidence, but if I remember correctly you said it was important but you summed it up as being malpractice.

If you take time to thoroughly look at http://www.treasonevidence.blogspot.com and the links you will see it’s much more than malpractice. Multiple insurance companies are violating laws in five types of insurance and :

** They have caused the suicides of many injured workers

** In disability they ignored brain lesions and Multiple Sclerosis, cardiac conditions of many patients, and a foot that a new mother broke in 5 places.

** In War Zone DBA cases they have destroyed many lives and caused Daniel Brink to have his wheelchair and bed repossessed. CNA knew that Daniel lost a leg, fingers and toes and had many other injuries in a car bomb blast.

I feel strongly that Obama and Bush are so evil they must be the wickedness in high places mentioned in Ephesians 6:12

If their evil is not Biblical I am certain they are still very evil.

We all have our own perceptions, but if anyone takes the time to review and understand the evidence, and tries really hard to imagine that your life and many families lives are being destroyed by these open violations of law, I believe you will understand this is all very evil … while at the same time Obama and Bush act like they are great spiritual leaders and both have led prayers on TV .

Anyone read War is a Racket by US Marine Corp Major General Smedley Butler??  I guess it’s not 100% true, but about 99%!  Contractors have supported the U.S. military since the Revolutionary War and will remain a force.

Barry Schmittou

Oct. 13, 2011, 1:07 p.m.

Hi Neil,

I haven’t read that book, but I think the U.S. and world governments are evil rackets. The U.S. is probably using contractors so the government can hide the true costs of war and the real numbers of deaths and injuries.

You can see a lot more about that by researching and following http://www.defensebaseactcomp.wordpress.com

If there is ever true justice in America the author of that blog and many of the contributors and commenters will receive huge awards for their tremendous efforts to seek justice !!

** Research also shows Halliburton and many more friends of Presidents have made huge profits while receiving no bid contracts !!

To Nick, Steve, and everyone,

Please add the crimes committed against Nick and everyone else who has posted here to the list of dangerous corporate crimes I’ve posted at http://www.seekingindictments.blogspot.com

As Nick wrote “the insurance carriers are aiding the enemies intent and maximizing their effects”

I believe Obama, Bush and Clinton’s DOL and DOJ have intentionally protected the insurance companies as evidenced by this quote from ProPublica :

“Workers fought long battles for medical care, including such things as prosthetic devices and treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. The Labor Department seldom took action to enforce the law.

“Labor officials can recommend cases for prosecution to the Justice Department–but have only done so once in the past two decades, according to Labor officials.”

!!!! While many thousands of lives have been destroyed, only one case was recommended for prosecution in twenty years !!!!!

You cannot imagine having your health benefits stolen by organized criminals while you have no money for surgery, medical treatment, food or housing, and at the same time the government does nothing about obvious crimes that occur repeatedly in five different types of insurance.

AND then you see Bush and Obama praying and quoting the Bible on TV and pretending they believe in God !!

As mentioned I feel strongly that Obama and Bush are so evil they must be the wickedness in high places mentioned in Ephesians 6:12
If their evil is not Biblical I am certain they are still very evil.

We all have our own perceptions, but if anyone tries really hard to imagine that your life and many families lives are being destroyed by these open violations of law, I believe you will understand this is all very evil … while at the same time Obama and Bush act like they are great spiritual leaders and both have led prayers on TV .

I believe the best summary of corporate criminal evidence and links I have to evidence including Wachovia laundering $378 BILLION for murderous Mexican Drug cartels (and Obama prosecuted no one) can be seen at http://www.seekingindictments.blogspot.com

!!!! AMERICA PLEASE TAKE ACTION !! That’s $378 BILLION laundered, zero prosecutions by Obama, 35,000 related murders, bridge hangings and tortures, and Obama got huge contributions from the launderers !!! The Republican leaders are equally evil !!!! GOD PLEASE HELP US ALL !!!!

Nick

Oct. 13, 2011, 4:36 p.m.

@Barry S.  Thanks for thoughts and comments.  Fortunately the DOL own rulesrequired them to care for me with stipulations.  In this case and many others the insurance company walked away almost scott free.  As I read your comments it brings to mind that your concerns would make subject of National Concern for public to be aware of and thru a televised program could be exposed.  Especially with the references and wrong doing you have brought to the discussion.  I didn’t even know that there was A law for War Contractors, DBA.  This is like the Federal Contractors Retirement plan, based on a 3 legged stool concept, 1.  Thrift Savings Plan,  2.  Fed Retirement, and 3.  SSA PENSION.  tHIS WORKS well if a 30 yr employee or if mil retiree buys in by paying back their 20 yrs retirement.  This didn’t come knowledge until my injuries.  A War Contractor has a losing battle before they start and as one commenter stated in past comments, no tears shed.  The contractor assumes the employer will protect them and cover their needs if injured wounded or loss of life, why because like me the employee would acquire Insurance.  Why assume because DBA makes it Law.  Thus 3 leg stool,  DBA, EMPLOYER/Insurance and personnal savings.  No job, no insurance payment or savings, Gov’t doesn’t enforce compliance with DBA.  The legs are gone and therefore the stool doesn’t carry or hold any wt.  The employer and Insurance walk away LEAVING THE injured contractor holding the bag of promidses and bills.  No crutches, no wheelchair, disability without compensation.  My belief its a breach of contract.  Just my oinion.

Barry Schmittou

Oct. 14, 2011, 11:02 a.m.

Thank you Nick.

I think it’s breach, treason and murder and Obama and Bush and their DOL and DOJ are accomplices.

You wrote “the insurance carriers are aiding the enemies intent and maximizing their effects”

Aiding the enemies is treason, and I believe Obama and Bush, AG Holder and Secretary Solis are guilty of treason.

One small example from my comment above is the following quotes from ProPublica :

“Workers fought long battles for medical care, including such things as prosthetic devices and treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. The Labor Department seldom took action to enforce the law.

“Labor officials can recommend cases for prosecution to the Justice Department–but have only done so once in the past two decades, according to Labor officials.”

The DOL and DOJ are protecting thses crimes in five different types of insurance. The next three paragraphs are part of the title of a motion that I filed in Federal Court. This was also received by the Whitehouse via certified mail. Please note I speak to Obama directy.

“Warning President Obama of Mass Suicides, Deaths and Endangerment in Five Different Types of Insurance Caused By Obama’s Campaign Contributors at Multiple Insurance Companies That Ignore Multiple Sclerosis, Brain lesions, Cardiac Conditions of Many Patients, and Cause So Many Suicides of Injured Workers WFAA – TV in Dallas Texas Wrote :

“a remarkable number of Texans committed suicide because they could no longer endure the pain caused by their injuries and they had been repeatedly turned down for worker’s comp care.”

You’ll see evidence of huge bid rigging and fraud committed repeatedly by multiple corporations that have given you huge contributions. During the time period of the Texas workers suicides AIG rigged huge bids to increase sales of Workers Comp policies. The Bush Administration did not prosecute the bid rigging and Obama’s DOL and DOJ will not investigate the suicides or prosecute or even stop any of these crimes !!

(end of motions title)
 
Add to that the fact that Wachovia Bank laundered $378 billion for Mexican drug cartels that are responsible for 35,000 murders. No one was prosecuted !!

Bank of America, American Express Bank International and Western Union also laundered drug money and no one was prosecuted.

AIG, JP Morgan Chase, MetLife, Prudential, Unum, rigged huge bids and no one was prosecuted!!

The full evidence can be seen at www. seekingindictments.blogspot.com and http://www.obamadrugmurdersconnection.blogspot.com

I am certain Obama and Bush’s administrations are managed by psychopaths with no human conscience, and I believe they are so evil they must certainly be part of the wickedness in high places seen in Ephesians 6:12.

I doubt they will ever change, but I keep posting the evidence hoping that God will help others see how evil the U.S. and world governments have become, and hoping that God will help Obama’s Directors to see the extreme suffering they are causing and have a spiritual awakening. I also want to keep Obama and Bush’s administrations deadly crimes in the light because Isaiah 1:17 writes :

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.”

Whether it’s Biblical or not, the destruction of lives caused by Obama and Bush’s protection of crimes makes them two of the largest mass murderers in the history of the world !  If we ever see justice on earth I hope and pray Obama and Bush, Holder and Solis face prosecution for the massive death and destruction of lives they have caused !!
