While vets die waiting, Pentagon moves ahead with Manning sex change
Examiner ^ | 5/15/14 | Timothy Whiteman

Posted on 05/16/2014 12:16:32 PM PDT by BlatherNaut

In the wake of an ever-burgeoning "wait for them to die" scandal within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the heavy hitters in the Obama Administration have made their priorities known; specifically, while accusations swirl of purposeful lack of medical attention to vets have resulted in needless deaths, the head honcho himself for the Department of Defense (DoD)greased the skids for a convicted turncoat to receive a taxpayer subsidized sex change operation. As reported on May 14, 2014 by both the Toronto, Canada-based The Globe and Mail and also the USA TODAY news portal, convicted renegade soldier Bradley Manning could soon be transferred to a civilian hospital on the orders the Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, according to two Pentagon officials speaking on grounds of anonymity.

In an announcement by Pentagon press secretary Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, "the Secretary approved a request by Army leadership to evaluate potential treatment options for inmates diagnosed with gender dysphoria." If and when approved, Manning will be transferred from the Leavenworth, Kansas military prison (officially deemed the United States Disciplinary Barracks) to a yet to be identified civilian hospital for Manning's sexual reassignment surgery. Reportedly, Secretary Hagel personally gave the official thumb's up last month for the Army "to try to work out a transfer plan with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, which does provide such treatment."

Some animals are more equal than others…especially the sexual perverts of all stripes.

Maning’s sex change is almost as bad of a slap in the face as John the Traitor Kerry accusing Viet Nam troops being baby killer and war criminals. He then called troops terrorists. Lets put Kerry on one of the VA death panel lists.

This is BS. However, it has nothing to do with the VA. Two separate agencies. Bureau of Prisons is doing this surgery. The Veteran’s Administration is the murderer.

This goon didn’t even talk about sex change operation until AFTER he was convicted. What a farce.

“if you are convicted of crimes and are in prison, don’t you lose certain rights? “

You don’t lose rights that move forward the left’s agenda. There’s another thread today about leaving prison but still being covered by health insurance.

It won’t cause a revolt
1. People think the vets should take care of it that they shouldn’t be so passive See Greg Gutfeld yesterday the Five for a typical musing
2. People have proven they are not caring about the country
3. This is nothing new. Been an awful place for a long time

To be clear, the vets work for us. Their whole philosophy is service. They accept whatever we, their bosses, think is best for them

The Pentagon chair polishers - ever watchful of their promotions, perks, and salaries - are intent on demonstrating their fealty to the arch-nincompoop Obama, and coddle marginal characters in politically targeted populations before serving our heroes.

I’m fine with them castrating him. After that they can wait for the next operation.

Notice the sleight of hand:

FTA:potential treatment options for inmates diagnosed with gender dysphoria.

Oh, its a mental disorder?

It is if you want treatment in prison. Not so much if you are on the street. Then, it is normal.

Is this one of those readiness priorites that put the commissaries on the chopping block?

Yeah, I know different agencies but so what, it shows what kind of funding and services are considered important in the corrupt beast.mil framework of dysfunction and destruction.

Meanwhile, basic compensation (housing, commissaries, health care) for veterans, retirees, active duty and their families that has been integral to the whole military income package is dismissed as “benefits we can no longer afford”.

The only humane method would be some fresh Texas honey and a mound of again Texas fire ants. Showing this as a documentary would ‘’enlighten’’ some he/shes about getting getting the wack off in the states or maybe Mexico

Holy cow.

This contrast is remarkable.

Obama falls over himself to make sure this little twirp gets elective surgery to pursue his twisted neurosis, while honorable VETERANS have their legitimate healthcare forever rationed and delayed.

At least the VA now has $500M in new curtains and furniture. All those budget increases under Obama just didn’t disappear. The unelected bureaucrats just had different priorities.

The world is upside down Clump, you’re correct. It is astounding to me how quickly all this change has come about. Most of it since 1/20/2009 if you ask me.

Yes the “fundamental transformation” has taken place.
Too bad nobody in the LSM bothered to ask which fundamental parts of America needed transforming and what we could expect from that.
I’ve always thought that would have been a good debate question back in 2008.

This would actually be a real good punishment. The little sh!thead don’t know what he’s in for.

I had teeth fixed and now I wished I had just let them stay crooked. My bite has changed and I think those suckers are moving back into their old crooked position. My dentist and X Rays assures me that they are not moving but I feel otherwise.

Now imagine if you manhood is whacked off. That is something you have had all your life. It’s not like teeth. It’s not like you can grow another one.

Is manning wants to be a girl. They can strip him naked and have a firing squad shot off his nuts. For the rest of it, they can amputate it in a similar fashion that was used in the Civil War.
