Nearly 40% of the millions of homeless in the United States are veterans. When the count of recent veterans that had committed suicide hit 30,000, back in 2008, the US government stopped counting.

This week, American war veterans in Los Angeles await a court decision that would return the Veterans National Home to them. The land had been stolen from them by gangsters and politicians, two groups most Americans now know are one and the same.


However, they fear the judge is under pressure from powerful anti-veteran groups now clearly identified as Israeli-based.

“Steamrolling” veterans
American war veterans have been targeted. They have known it for years, but it wasn’t until they were named “terrorists” by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and “anti-Semites” by Abe Foxman’s Anti-Defamation League that they knew who was out to get them.

A powerful organization, organized crime figures, AIPAC, the ADL and JDL, aided by Senator’s Feinstein and Boxer and Representatives Waxman and Pelosi, have declared war on America’s homeless veterans.


Aiding them are phony non-profit organizations, the Veteran’s Park Conservancy and Brentwood Homeowners Association, multi-millionaires, Israeli citizens, stealing from homeless veterans, organizing smear campaigns, hiring thugs, police and military, to threaten and intimidate veterans, many well into their 80’s. But why?

Veterans control billions in land, are served by one of the world’s largest hospital systems and supposedly receive endless billions in aid programs which have not just been increasingly privatized but increasingly targeted by organized crime.

Police state or “gangster state?”
Veterans are an easy target and laws that allowed Congress to be taken over by “banksters,” drug cartels and human traffickers have empowered criminal elements among America’s “friends of Israel” to prey on damaged and disenfranchised war heroes.

Service organizations tasked with protecting veterans have made it even easier as they had begun the process long before, taking everything in sight and waving the flag to cover their crimes.

Now the real professionals have taken over.

Background
Back during the 19th century, nearly 400 acres of worthless land was donated as a home for war veterans. That land is now worth four billion dollars. The veterans group, “the Old Guard” that has been demonstrating for nearly 300 consecutive weeks, never knew who their real enemies were.

Police came to arrest them, war heroes with an average age of over 70. The courts ruled that the police had violated the law.

Aging veterans had their phones tapped, their computers hacked and were even followed by members of special police units working for the Department of Veterans Affairs, some dressed as “ground keepers, photographed leaning on shovels while “not so casually” talking into microphones hidden in their sleeves and tapping their earpieces.


It would have been funny if it weren’t also so criminal. Military police came, filmed assaulting the aging wheelchair-bound vets, but police and the courts would do nothing.

How do you tell the Israel lobby from the mafia? You can’t!
Then it happened, the “Old Guard” were called “anti-Semites” by the ADL.
The ADL called them “Nazi extremists.” A local Jewish paper claimed the group was “terrorist,” citing that:

“Veteran protesters are likely to bring machine guns and start killing people in the streets.”

There is a problem with this. Some of the vets are Jewish. Their supporters are Jewish. Their lawyers with the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) are all Jewish.

What makes them “anti-Semites” is that they are threatening a racket that is spreading across America, billions of dollars of land, some designated for veterans, some for parks, some for hospitals or wildlife, all being given to billionaire developers.

Every one of these developers are Israeli citizens. All have long-time ties to the Meyer Lansky “Murder Incorporated” gang that was the real “Mafia.” They are alive and well today, many safely settled in Israel, others still in America. This same organization, the one at war with America’s veterans, the “Old Guard” and “Veterans Today,” put Bush (43) in office, made billions when the World Trade Center was demolished on 9/11, made trillions during the bailouts and market crash and, of course, started the Iraq and Afghan wars and are manipulating the slaughter in Syria and Egypt.

Ground zero Los Angeles
Nearly 40% of the millions of homeless in the United States are veterans. When the count of recent veterans that had committed suicide hit 30,000, back in 2008, the US government stopped counting.

Over 10,000 veterans of Operation Desert Storm have died of a mysterious disease called “[Persian] Gulf War Syndrome,” well documented but denied.

Few Americans know or care that, by 1985, 50,000 Vietnam veterans had died of Agent Orange poisoning. By 2005, over 1 million Vietnam veterans had died of suicide or “unknown causes,” making the toll from that war greater than the combined losses of all other wars combined, including two World Wars, the Civil War and even Korea.

Veterans as the new Palestinians
The methods used against American veterans, in California and across the US, deeply parallels Israel’s land grabs that have disposed millions of Palestinians.
However, American veterans don’t even have refugee camps to go to, no organization to represent them and, when and if they speak up, they are quickly “disappeared,” prison, accidents or untimely suicides.

“New-Think,” supporting al Qaeda and declaring war on veterans
Veterans have been officially classified as “terrorists” by the Department of Homeland Security. From the Washington Times:

“Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday that she was briefed before the release of a controversial intelligence assessment and that she stands by the report, which lists returning veterans among terrorist risks to the US.
‘The document on right-wing extremism sent last week by this department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis is one in an ongoing series of assessments to provide situational awareness to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies on the phenomenon and trends of violent radicalization in the United States,’ Ms. Napolitano said in her statement.
‘Let me be very clear: We monitor the risks of violent extremism taking root here in the United States. We don’t have the luxury of focusing our efforts on one group; we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown, and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence,’ Ms. Napolitano said.
‘We are on the lookout for criminal and terrorist activity but we do not - nor will we ever - monitor ideology or political beliefs. We take seriously our responsibility to protect the civil rights and liberties of the American people, including subjecting our activities to rigorous oversight from numerous internal and external sources.’”

Ground zero Los Angeles
Each week for nearly six years veterans from three wars have stood against the powerful “West Side Political Machine” of Henry Waxman and the millionaire Israeli-Americans of the Brentwood Homeowners Association.

America’s “Veterans Home” was seized, given to the rich who built a private school, a place for their pets to befoul and a million dollar rose garden, all on land held sacred for America’s homeless heroes.

A multi-million dollar fence and militarized police force guarantee that the 20,000 local homeless veterans will never step foot on the home they alone own.

The rich hold parties there, movie premiers, fund raisers for gay and lesbian charities, all the while the veterans who own the land, and have proven it in court, sleep on the sidewalks, in the bushes, sometimes, too often, to be hauled away “dead of unknown causes.”

The names
Think Waxman, Foxman, Netanyahu, Pelosi, Boxer, Beiter, Broad, Millman, Mizel, Frank and especially John McCain.

Few outside the US know how American veterans suffer. After Vietnam, Senator John McCain, according to Col’s Ted Guy, Earl Hopper and Jim Hanke worked tirelessly to make sure none of the hundreds of POWs held after the end of the war were repatriated.

Hanke, former POW recovery officer in Thailand, tells of reports of POW sightings being suppressed, of the American people being lied to under the veil of “operational secrecy.”

Today, nearly a million veterans await claims processing, said to be as long as 18 months. In truth, “processing” means blanket denials with real claims taking up to 25 years or more to process.

Many Vietnam veterans are only now getting claims processed for illnesses and injuries dating from the 1960s and 70s.

Veterans call it: “Deny, deny, deny until they die.”

This is the rule, not the exception.

Easy targets
Veterans didn’t know. They never guessed that they could be targeted like Syria or Iran. The “war” in the Middle East wasn’t supposed to come to America, not here and certainly not be fought against veterans, so many of whom fought illegal and hopeless wars on behalf of Israel. They know now.
