VA Official Paid $288K In ‘Relocation Payments’ To Move 140 Miles

th

DailyCaller: The director of the Philadelphia VA regional benefits office was paid $288,000 in “relocation payments” to move the 140 miles from Washington, D.C. to her new home last year.

Diana Rubens was tapped last June to take over the Philadelphia regional benefits office, which is one of many VA hospitals and benefits offices currently being investigated over benefits claims.

Rubens, who previously served as the D.C.-based deputy undersecretary for field operations, where she oversaw 57 regional offices, was brought in to help fix the embattled Philadelphia facility.

A breakdown of Rubens’ “relocation payments” was not immediately available, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, but a VA spokesman said that there was nothing inappropriate with the spending.

Federal regulations allow for the reimbursement of relocation expenses including the “costs of house-hunting, moving, terminating leases, and a per-diem rate for meals and temporary housing for an employee and his or her family,” the spokesman said.

But that hefty repayment is nearly 160 percent of what Rubens earned in base pay all of last year, raising questions over what exactly that money could have gone towards. Rubens was paid more than $181,000 in 2014, according to the website FedSmith.com, which maintains a database of federal employee compensation.

“The government shouldn’t be in the business of doling out hundreds of thousands in cash to extremely well-compensated executives just to move less than three hours down the road,” Florida Rep. Jeff Miller, the chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, told the Inquirer.

“For VA to pay such an outrageous amount in relocation expenses at a time when the department is continually telling Congress and taxpayers it needs more money raises questions about VA’s commitment to fiscal responsibility, transparency and true reform.”

Rubens has been mentioned before in articles criticizing other money she’s been paid by the VA. According to the Center for Investigative Reporting, in 2011, she received a bonus of more than $23,000 even though patient backlogs — one area Rubens was in charge of managing — increased by 300,000.

The Washington Examiner reported last year that Rubens received more than $97,000 in bonuses between 2007 and 2011 even though the average time to process veterans’ claims doubled to 325 days on her watch. The ratio of backlogged cases nearly doubled as well, from 37 percent in 2009 to 71 percent in 2013.

Making some parents furious, a Pine Bush, New York high school courted controversy by teaching kids to recite our national Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic even changing “one nation under god” to “one nation under Allah.” The morning’s regularly scheduled announcements included the Arabic reading of the pledge.

The 379 Companies Pushing Homo Marriage on the Supreme Court

image

Per the Huffington Post:

Big business has come out in favor of same-sex marriage.

Exactly 379 corporations and employer organizations urged the Supreme Court to strike down state bans on gay marriage, according to a friend-of-the-court brief obtained by The Huffington Post. The document was expected to be filed late Thursday morning.

“Employers are better served by a uniform marriage rule that gives equal dignity to employee relationships,” reads the brief, filed by global law firm Morgan Lewis. “Allowing same-sex couples to marry improves employee morale and productivity, reduces uncertainty, and removes the wasteful administrative burdens imposed by the current disparity of state law treatment.”

The list, provided in full below, includes corporate behemoths such as Coca-Cola Company, Goldman Sachs, Google and Morgan Stanley. It also includes brands like Ben & Jerry’s, a division of Unilever, and sports teams such as the New England Patriots, the San Francisco Giants and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Communists Conceived Women’s Liberation Movement

Communists Conceived Women’s Liberation Movement

“There is nothing that feminists said or did in the 1960’s-1980’s that wasn’t prefigured in the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA) of the 1940’s and 1950’s.”

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

“Rape is an expression of … male supremacy … the age-old economic, political and cultural exploitation of women by men.”

Does this sound like a modern radical feminist? Guess again. It is from a American Communist Party pamphlet from 1948 entitled “Woman Against Myth”by Mary Inman.

In a 2002 book, Red Feminism: American Communism and the Making of Women’s Liberation, feminist historian Kate Weigand states: “ideas, activists and traditions that emanated from the Communist movement of the forties and fifties continued to shape the direction of the new women’s movement of the 1960s and later.”(154)

In fact, Weigand, a lecturer at Smith College, shows that modern feminism is a direct outgrowth of American Communism. There is nothing that feminists said or did in the 1960’s-1980’s that wasn’t prefigured in the CPUSA of the 1940’s and 1950’s. Many second-wave feminist leaders were “red diaper babies,” the children of Communists.

Communists pioneered the political and cultural analysis of woman’s oppression. They originated “women’s studies,” and advocated public daycare, birth control, abortion and even children’s rights. They forged key feminist concepts such as “the personal is the political” and techniques such as “consciousness raising.”

In the late 1940’s, CPUSA leaders realized that the labor movement was becoming increasingly hostile to Communism. They began to focus on women and African Americans. They hoped “male supremacy” would “bring more women into the organization and into the fight against the domestic policies of the Cold War.” (80)

Communist women who made up 40% of the party wanted more freedom to attend party meetings. After the publication of “Women Against Myth” in 1948, the CPUSA initiated a process of “re-educating” men that we recognize only too well today.

For example, in the party newspaper “The Daily Worker” a photo caption of a man with a young child read, “Families are stronger and happier if the father knows how to fix the cereal, tie the bibs and take care of the youngsters.” (127)

The Party ordered men who didn’t take the woman question seriously to complete “control tasks involving study on the woman question.” In 1954 the Los Angeles branch disciplined men for “hogging discussion at club meetings, bypassing women comrades in leadership and making sex jokes degrading to women.” (94)

A film Salt of the Earth, which critic Pauline Kael called “Communist propaganda”, portrayed women taking a decisive role in their husbands’ labor strike. “Against her husband’s wishes, Esperanza became a leader in the strike and for the first time forged a role for herself outside of her household… [her] political successes persuaded Ramon to accept a new model of family life.” (132) Portrayals of strong assertive successful women became as common in the Communist press and schools, as they are in the mass media today.

Communist women formalized a sophisticated Marxist analysis of the “woman question.” The books In Women’s Defense (1940) by Mary Inman, Century of Struggle (1954) by Eleanor Flexner and The Unfinished Revolution (1962) by Eve Merriam recorded women’s oppression and decried sexism in mass culture and language. For example, Mary Inman argued that “manufactured femininity” and “overemphasis on beauty” keeps women in subjection (33).

The founder of modern feminism, Betty Frieden, relied on these texts when she wrote The Feminine Mystique (1963). These women all hid the fact that they were long-time Communist activists. In the 1960, their daughters had everything they needed, including the example of subterfuge, to start the Women’s Liberation Movement.

THE COMMUNIST CHARACTER OF FEMINISM

Feminism’s roots in Marxist Communism explain a great deal about this curious but dangerous movement. It explains:

Why the ” woman’s movement” hates femininity and imposes a political-economic concept like “equality” on a personal, biological and mystical relationship.

Why the “women’s movement” also embraces “equality” of race and class.

Why they want revolution (“transformation”) and have a messianic vision of a gender-less utopia.

Why they believe human nature is infinitely malleable and can be shaped by indoctrination and coercion.

Why they engage in endless, mind-numbing theorizing, doctrinal disputes and factionalism.

Why truth for them is a “social construct” defined by whomever has power, and appearances are more important than reality.

Why they reject God, nature and scientific evidence in favour of their political agenda.

Why they refuse to debate, don’t believe in free speech, and suppress dissenting views.

Why they behave like a quasi-religious cult, or like the Red Guard.

It’s hard to escape the conclusion that feminism is Communism by another name. Communism is designed to give power to the puppets of central bankers by fostering division and conflict. Divide and Conquer. Having failed to peddle class and race war, Communism promoted gender conflict instead. In each case they fostered a sense of grievance in the target group. Now the traditional feminine role “oppressed” women.

The “diversity” and “multicultural” movements represent Communism’s attempt to empower and use other minorities, gays and “people of color,” to further undermine the majority (European, Christian) culture. Thus, the original CPUSA trio of “race, gender and class” is very much intact but class conflict was never a big seller.

The term “politically correct” originated in the Russian Communist Party in the 1920’s. Its usage in America today illustrates the extent society has been subverted. Feminist activists are mostly Communist dupes. The Communist goal is to destroy Western Civilization and establish a veiled dictatorship called “world government” run by the toadies of the central bankers.

We have seen this destruction in the dismantling of the liberal arts curriculum and tradition of free speech and inquiry at our universities. We have seen this virus spread to government, business, the media and the military. This could only happen because the financial elite in fact sponsors Communism.

In Communism, government is the ultimate monopoly. It controls everything, not just wealth but also power and thought. It is the instrument of monopoly capital (i.e. Rothschild, Rockefeller.) Everybody from the President on down works for them.

A LOCAL EXAMPLE

“Political correctness” has dulled and regimented our cultural life. In 2002, here in Winnipeg, Betty Granger, a conservative school trustee referred to “the Asian invasion” causing house price increases in Vancouver. Granger was pilloried mercilessly in the press. People sent hate letters and dumped garbage on her lawn.

At a meeting, the School Board Chairman acknowledged that Granger is not a racist and Asians have married into her family. Nonetheless, Granger was censured because, I quote, “appearances are more important than reality.” This slippage from the mooring of objective truth is the hallmark of Communism.

The atmosphere at the meeting was charged. Mild mannered Canadians, all champions of “tolerance,” behaved like wild dogs eager to rip apart a trapped rabbit. Betty Granger repented and voted in favor of her own censure.

These rituals of denunciation and contrition, typical of Stalinist Russia or Maoist China, are becoming more common in America. They are like show trials designed to frighten people into conforming. We have “diversity officers” and “human rights commissions” and “sensitivity training” to uphold feminist shibboleths. They talk about “discrimination” but they freely discriminate against Christians, white heterosexual men and traditional women. They use the specter of “sexual harassment” to fetter male-female relations and purge their opponents.

CONCLUSION

In 1980, three women in Leningrad produced ten typewritten copies of a feminist magazine called Almanac. The KGB shut down the magazine and deported the women to West Germany. In the USSR, feminism has largely been for export. According to Professor Weigand, her “book provides evidence to support the belief that at least some Communists regarded the subversion of the gender system [in America] as an integral part of the larger fight to overturn capitalism.”

In conclusion, the feminist pursuit of “equal rights” is a mask for an invidious Communist agenda. The Communist MO has always been deception, infiltration and subversion using social justice issues as a pretext. Communism can take any form that empowers the puppets of the central bankers. The goal is the destruction of Western civilization and creation of a new world order run by monopoly capital. This has largely been accomplished.

Kate Weigand’s Red Feminism demonstrates that we live in a de facto Communist society, a development which took place by subterfuge with the complicity of the Masonic central banker-controlled Establishment.

Makow – What is Communism?

First Comment from TWH:

I have no doubt in my mind at all that bankers are behind a lot of the nonsense we are witnessing today with respect to social re-engineering. I used to work for one of the big five banks here in Canada and can personally attest to the fact that they would ceaselessly push this communist propaganda onto employees all the time. If the company wasn’t extolling the virtues of International Women’s Day, they were harping about buggery (homosexuality) or how “vibrant” minorities made us. The entire strategy was to divide people while telling us that we’re all the same (and, of course, making the white, heterosexual majority feel bland and useless). Only by engaging in some severe cognitive dissonance could one actually swallow their hogwash.

I found the part about Betty Granger in your article particularly eye-popping. She was told that “appearances are more important than reality”. I was told this, or a minor variation of it, numerous times by management where I worked. When I would retort with reason and logic, they’d simply repeat their line.

When you’re the only sane person among a bunch of mentally ill people, you begin to think you’re the one who might be the insane one. I don’t know how people can simply remain silent about it.

I used to compare the bank to a former Eastern-Bloc nation, since they had their Stasi/KGB in overly nosy and harassing H.R. representatives (they would only enforce what management wanted enforced and would dismiss any real concerns brought by white employees — if you’re working for a major corporation, NEVER TRUST H.R.), they had their propaganda arm which permeated everything, they had their legal department which had documents the size of novels to ensure any employee could be accused of wrongdoing when it suited them, and they had the workers in fear of their jobs if they ever decided to raise a peep against any of it. I’m glad to be gone from that place!

“I Have Come To Indoctrinate Your Children” Homo Activist

“I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children” – LGBTQ Activist

March 14, 2015

(Left, Sason Bear Bergman, 40, formerly Sharon Jill, is a Jewish woman who “changed” into a man and then married a man.)

“I want your children [to become] like me…”

This article proves homosexual activists are intolerant. While society is willing to live and let live, these bigots, a microscopic minority, impose their norms on us. If we demur, we are “homophobic” and “bullies.”

Government, schools and corporations pay Bear Bergman to convince their people he is healthy and normal. He
creates “queer and trans cultural competency at universities, corporations, health care providers, and governmental organizations.” A founder of the first Gay/Straight Alliance, he lectures on making schools “safe” for GLBT students. He resides in Toronto with his husband J Wallace and their son Stanley.

By S. Bear Bergman
I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children Into My LGBTQ Agenda (And I’m Not a Bit Sorry)
(abridged by henrymakow.com)

I am here to tell you: All that time I said I wasn’t indoctrinating anyone with my beliefs about gay and lesbian and bi and trans and queer people?

That was a lie.

All 25 years of my career as an LGBTQ activist, since the very first time as a 16-year-old I went and stood shaking and breathless in front of eleven people to talk about My Story, I have been on a consistent campaign of trying to change people’s minds about us. I want to make them like us. That is absolutely my goal. I want to make your children like people like me and my family, even if that goes against the way you have interpreted the teachings of your religion.

I want to be present in their emotional landscapes as a perfectly nice dad and writer who is married to another guy. Who used to be a girl (kind of). Who is friendly and cheerful and not scary at all, no matter what anyone says.

I would also like to know: Why are we so afraid of admitting this? I ask as a person who quailed before this accusation (and its slimy misguided undertones of pederasty) for more than two decades. That is our job: to encourage people, especially children, to think differently about a subject than they do now. To dispel the dim and dismal miasma of myths and stereotypes, and instead allow the light of truth and fairness to shine in. That’s the deal, my friends. And if we have done it — if we have come to a place where a kid has been struggling in the muck of ignorance and hatred, and helped them up and cleaned them off and sent them to play in a meadow of love or at least kindness — then baby, we have done the thing well.

At the moment, I am helping to put the finishing touches on a series of children’s books that all feature lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer kids or families. There are six books, and they are racially and ethnically diverse, filled with girls and women doing cool things, page upon page of kids enacting their own identities in joyous and peaceful ways.

There’s no bullying or shaming in these books, and no Very Special Episode identity politics — it’s just happy kids being well, solving problems, having adventures, loving and being loved. They have lesbian mums and gay dads and big extended queer chosen families; some are gender-independent. But what they all are is present. They are all in the books, on the page, on the landscape….

How do we talk to children most effectively? Through story. And so, I set about trying to make a set of children’s stories that would teach kids what I want my son and all of his schoolmates to know — that people like the people in our family (both biological and logical) are absolutely great.

It wasn’t hard for me to understand that kids who get that message, even if they never know any our LGBTQ people as far as they know, may indeed carry it into adulthood. I watch the rash of recent murders of trans women and I think — there’s nothing I can do about that now except give money and pray. I do those things. But if there’s anything I can do to get ahead of the problem, to refashion the world so that the humanity and value of trans women is made evident to more people, and sooner, in the face of cultural forces than I want to do it. I want to teach kids all about the idea of trans people like children in Nebraska read books about the ocean: even if you’ve never seen it, it’s still a lovely thing that exists in the world, and you will get to enjoy it one day, if you’re lucky.

That’s what I want kids to know about lesbian, gay, bi, queer, and trans people — that we exist, that we’re perfectly fine and often really excellent, and that even if you don’t know any now you will before too long. I want them to know that we’re absolutely as worthwhile and worthy of love and respect as anyone, and that if you’re kind to us and behave yourself well there’s a better than even chance you can get an invitation to brunch. I want kids to know this even if their parents’ or community’s interpretation of their religious tenets is that we’re awful. I would be happy — delighted, overjoyed I tell you — to cause those children to disagree with their families on the subject of LGBTQ people.

If that makes me an indoctrinator, I accept it. Let me be honest — I am not even a little bit sorry.

Henry,Sometimes I have to ask myself if there is something wrong with me, am I the normal one, or am I beyond help for feeling this outraged at things like this?

VARIETY magazine pumping up Sally Field’s new movie HELLO MY NAME IS DORIS, about a sixty something grandma who has a ‘crush’ on a thirty something male. This is supposed to be funny stuff, I can’t for the life of me find any humor in this Henry.. I remember trying to watch Betty White’s new show where she stops young men on the street with ‘sexual inuendo’. I could not laugh, I wanted to die of embarrassement, I wanted to puke. I have not watched Betty White since.

Now we have Sally Field, a grandmother in real life, who is going to expect me to laugh at her ‘crush’ on a boy who is the same age as my real son, in his thirties.

I suppose this is all just typical Hollywood liberal behavior, but honestly, I am so embarrassed for Sally Field’s real-life grandchildren that I can’t wrap my brain around whatever possessed this actress to want to play a perverted grandmother who has sexual fantasies about young men, then proceeds to sexually molest them in her mind.

Watching the trailer to this movie made me physically ill.

When does the perversion stop in Hollywood?
I am REPULSED.

I find it frightening to see the spread of this culture, it seem no escaping this. Christian and Muslims should respond to this lady by launching children story books, talking about gender identities according to faith.

Alan C said (March 14, 2015):

Regarding the article on wanting to indoctrinate our children. NO THANKS! Gender Confusion is a mental disease, God Created man and woman as two parts of the whole, so that the branch of humanity can keep reproducing (pro-creation).
When a male or female discontinue their branch that is the death of that branch of the human tree.

God gives many examples of his Tree-Mend-Us principals, as He is the tree of life. Why must some people promote death, not passing on the mans seed though another woman? This is known as a being a “mamser” (death of the next generation, the terminus, end of the line etc.).

Personally I do not care when people who are gender confused, can do what they want in the closet I do not Judge them. But when you come after My children then you have crossed the line and there Will be a fight.

Please get help before you destroy many others, as you have yourself.

MA said (March 14, 2015):

This is the new world order. It isn’t something that is coming in the future, we have been living in it for years. Likewise, I somewhat believe that the antichrist may be manifested spiritually in these times, rather than as a physical person. The bible seems to communicate that the spirit of antichrist is the denial of Christ as the one true Son of God, and it also described him as a deceiver.

The amount of deception, temptation, confusion and total darkness in the world today supports the theory that his evil spirit rules the world.

There really is no hope for these people confused into the homosexual movement, they are incredibly sick and they cannot be helped. Not that it isn’t possible to help them, but help is denied them. The entire western model is built around accepting their sickness as normal. In Ontario there is a crazy women politician who wants to deny them help even more by banning conversion therapy.

It is hard not to feel bad for these sick people, especially those in the ‘trans’ community. Who ruin their lives and bodies through hormones, and (God forbid) surgery. It is like the crystal meth of homosexuality. The people who deny them help, and call this normal are criminals and need to be eradicated.

The only hope for this world would be for a massive revolution and restoration of sound thinking, good living, true beauty, morality etc. That will only come through a miracle. Even the head of the Catholic Church (which could and should of been a bastion of resistance against this anti-Christ world order) is appearing to be possibly an imposter.

In his power, he could sound the alarm and wake millions up to the fact that the world is sick. But instead he says, ‘Who am I to judge’, cursing these people to remain sick instead of providing any hope of healing.

This is why I am finding being a stay at home mom so valuable. It is an inoculation against this disease. This is a quiet and loving battle moms need to fight on a daily basis.

BTW, when I worked at a hospital system before quitting work, we changed ALL of our health screening questions to be “inclusive” toward this community. This meant, in triage, nurses asking an elderly lady who had perhaps had a fainting spell, what gender she considered herself to be.

New England Patriots (and others) Go Homo!

Pats, S.F. Giants back gay marriage
Updated: March 6, 2015, 8:46 AM ET
ESPN.com news services

WASHINGTON — The New England Patriots are for same-sex marriage. So are the San Francisco Giants.

The reigning football and baseball champions, along with baseball’s small-market Tampa Bay Rays, are among the thousands of businesses, religious groups, advocacy organizations and politicians who are filing legal briefs at the U.S. Supreme Court in support of gay marriage.

The cases from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee will be argued April 28, and a decision is expected by early summer.

Roughly six dozen briefs backing pro-gay rights plaintiffs in the four states are expected by the Friday deadline. Included is a “people’s brief” filed by the Human Rights Campaign with the signatures of 207,551 people.

The Super Bowl-champion Patriots, the World Series-winning Giants and the Rays are part of a brief from hundreds of U.S. businesses.

The Patriots play in Massachusetts, the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry, and the Giants represent a city that is notable for its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Rays president Brian Auld said it was important that his team stand up as well.

“We’re a small but visible business, and I actually think it’s important that we send this signal of inclusion to the entire region,” Auld said in a telephone interview Thursday as he watched the Rays’ first spring training game in Port Charlotte, Florida.

The team also has participated in the “It Gets Better” project to encourage LGBT teenagers who have been bullied.

“Our players have traditionally been supportive of these kinds of things,” Auld said.

The Patriots, Giants and Rays are taking a stand the same week New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy made headlines for comments on MLB ambassador for inclusion Billy Bean, who is gay. “I disagree with his lifestyle,” Murphy told NJ.com on Tuesday. “I do disagree with the fact that Billy is a homosexual.”

A team spokesman said Wednesday that Murphy will no longer address his religious beliefs and will stick to baseball.
