A controversial story on FOTM is gaining momentum

Here’s a bit more about the Swinging Johnsons
(Mr. and Mr. Obama):

When Dr. Eowyn first covered this story, I thought it might be a bridge too far, too hard to believe.

Cognitive dissonance,” that’s what made me hold back from it. It was just too outrageous. How could anyone think such a thing in the plain light of day?

But here, in 2020, it keeps going, and gaining momentum. It hasn’t gone away. And the other outrages since then have made it almost seem normal for a president to be gay with a transgender husband. Other outrages include crisis actors, all 57 genders, Adrenochrome and the Lolita Express, Anthony’s Weiner, the most powerful men in the world gathered each summer for a gay boys camp at Bohemian Grove. So a Mr. and Mr. Obama have (sadly) become thinkable. (Perhaps Joan Rivers didn’t have to be silenced after all.) So then the DNC’s seeming franchise of Murder Incorporated seems plausible, too! Like the infamous Clinton “Arkanas Flu,” there is a trail of mysterious deaths leading back to Obama, and the coverup of his lifestyle.

When I first came onboard with FOTM, I had no idea how much I was going to be challenged to rethink my presumptions. This is one of those things. Dr. Eowyn has taken some heavy criticism for her bold reporting of things which might seem inconceivable. And yet, the longer I have known her the more I trust her judgement. Bravo Dr. Eowyn!

Declassification of House Intelligence Russia investigation documents

Declassification of documents.

Now we can see for ourselves how the Democrats lied to the public in matters related to the investigation into Trump/Russia collusion .  When reading the documents keep in mind the following:

“In 2017 and 2018, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) undertook an investigation into Russia’s interference campaign targeting the 2016 U.S. election. The Committee’s investigation came on the heels of an Intelligence Community assessment, which found:”

“Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump.”

Here are some quotes from Adam Schiff.  Truth or false accusations?

“Whil” Special Counsel Mueller found insufficient evidence to prove the crime of criminal conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt, he refused to draw any conclusion on the issue of collusion — contrary to false representations made by Attorney General Bill Barr and others. There is ample evidence of the corrupt interactions between the Trump campaign and Russia, both direct and circumstantial, in the record:”


 “Trump and his son drafted a false statement for the press together in order to cover up the true purpose of the meeting. .”“Multiple witnesses sought to hide and cover up illicit activity related to Russia during the presidential campaign.”“And the transcripts also show that during the transition period in late 2016, the incoming National Security Advisor.”


“Despite taking part in this investigation and hearing these facts first-hand, the transcripts reveal how House Republicans used witness interviews not to gain the facts, but to press President Trump’s false narrative of ‘no collusion, no obstruction.’


“the White House held up their release to the public by refusing to allow the Intelligence Community to make redactions on the basis of classified information, rather than White House political interests.”

Sandy Hook and Obama’s Connecticut Social Security number

Note: When WordPress took down this blog on August 15, 2018, many of our published posts were disappeared from the net, each of which must be retrieved, restored and re-published on its original publication date. This post was originally published on Dec. 27, 2014. It is so interesting, it warrants a fresh re-publishing.

………………………………………………………………….

One of the many curiosities about the sitting President of the United States is the fact that, unlike us, he has not one, but multiple Social Security numbers (SSN).

In 2010, two licensed private investigators, Neil Sankey and Susan Daniels, found that multiple SS numbers are associated with Barack Obama’s name. Daniels and Sankey put their findings in sworn affidavits. Dr. Orly Taitz further verified their information with a third source, a retired Department of Homeland Security senior investigator named John Sampson.

In May 2010, the mystery deepened when it was determined that the SSN Obama is currently using (042-68-4425) has a Connecticut prefix, 042, but Obama had never lived in nor had associations with the state of Connecticut. Obama has been using that 042 SS number since 1979 when he was 18 years old.
In an article for Western Journalism, Stephen Baldwin writes:

All told, there are 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers listed for a person whose name is spelled “Barack Obama”…. [T]the one Social Security number Obama most frequently used, the one beginning with 042, is a number issued in Connecticut sometime during 1976-1977, yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time.

In late February 2011, the mystery further deepened when retired US Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister, the litigant in an Obama eligibility lawsuit, conducted a search for Obama’s Connecticut SSN in the Social Security Number Verification System used by small businesses to verify employment eligibility. The results came back as:

Failed: SSN not in file (never issued)

To the question of why Obama obtained a Connecticut-issued SSN instead of one by Hawaii, Joel Gilbert, maker of the documentary Dreams from My Real Father, has a plausible explanation: Obama’s peculiar Connecticut-issued SSN is related to the question of Obama’s birth certificate.

At the inception of the program, all SSNs were assigned and cards issued based solely on information provided by the applicant. However, in the 1970s, Social Security Administration began requiring proof of age, identity, and citizenship. In 1977, lacking a valid birth certificate, Obama was forced to buy a SS number so he could get his first job at a Honolulu Baskin Robbins. Gilbert surmises that Obama was sold an SSN that was Connecticut-based so it couldn’t be traced back to the Hawaii SS office. (See “Why Obama has a Connecticut Social Security no.”)

It goes without saying that it is a crime to use a Social Security number that isn’t yours. It is also a fact that once the Social Security Administration issued a SSN, even after the recipient died, SSA will never reissue that number to another person. There is one Numident record for each SSN ever assigned. A numident is the social security number itself, which is only assigned once and is never used again unless it is stolen.

So who was the original owner of Obama’s Connecticut-issued Social Security number?

In May 2011, blogger The Obama Hustle conducted a database pull for SSN 042-68-4425 and got the names of Harrison J. Bounel and Barack Obama, indicating that one SSN was being used by both men.

Since Obama uses Harrison Bounel’s SSN, a search for the relatives of Harrison Bounel shows Michelle Obama as Bounel’s spouse (see below).

So who is/was Harrison J. Bounel?

Leslie Bishop, a genealogy expert with over 25 years of experience, found a 1940 Census document showing a Harry Bounel, age 50, residing in Bronx, NY, which would make 1890 Bounel’s birth year. Harry Bounel’s listing is on line 48 (see red arrow I painted next to his name).

In September 2012, Leslie Bishop sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Social Security Administration for information on a Harry Bounel with the SSN 042-68-4425. Below is the letter she received (you can also see the letter on Scribd):

In the letter dated November 16, 2012, Dawn S. Wiggins, Freedom of Information Officer at the Social Security Administration, wrote that in spite of Leslie Bishop’s FOIA request, her request is declined because “disclosing this information would be a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.” Mind you, in 2012 Harrison Bounel would have to be 120 years old, which means he had long died. But SS Administration nevertheless claims revealing information about his SS number would be an “invasion” of the dead man’s privacy.

Bishop stated that Social Security Administration “acknowledged my request for THAT numident and denied my request. In other words, that record exists and since there is only one Numident per SS# and that Numident for Harry Bounel with SS# 042-68-4425 apparently exists, then it’s not possible that O is using that number legally and it is apparent that Bounel is the original holder of that number.” (Source: The Obama Hustle)

Dr. Orly Taitz writes on Jan. 18, 2013:

According to 1940 census Harry Bounel was born in Russia in 1890. This is the date of birth on some of Lexis records associated with the Social Security number 042-68-4425…. Also, we had some records showing Harry Bounel residing with Robinson family in CT in 1910.

By “Robinson family,” Dr. Taitz means Michelle Obama’s family, the Robinsons (Michelle’s maiden name is Michelle Robinson). Taitz continues:

Michele Robinson Obama’s great grand mother Rose Ella Cohen, the name strikes me as a name of a Jewish woman from Russia…. It actually was not uncommon in those days for Jewish immigrant women from Russia to marry African American man, these Jewish women were not raised with any prejudice against African American men and also were persecuted.  I want to know, if Harry Bounel was related to her. He was born in 1890. She was born in 1893-1896. Very close in age, he could be her cousin. From what I understand Harry Bounel never married. In this case the only family, who would be his next of kin,  who would  be Robinson family.

Another weird coincidense [sic]. We see Bounel residing in CT in 1910. The Social Security [number] was issued in 1977 in CT. He was 87 at that time. There was a hospital next to Newton [sic]. It was a Newtown psychiatric hospital, where some elderly without family resided their last days. The hospital later was renamed to Fairfield state hospital. This is where the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims were taken for autopsy.

Dr. Taitz received the letter below from a reader:

I’m in my 60’s and grew up in Bridgeport CT until 1961. When I was a kid in the 50’s, we used to joke that if you’re bad you’ll be sent to the “Newtown nut house”, a psychiatric hospital in Newtown that was just next to Danbury. […] You had surmised that the identity [Obama’s Connecticut SSN] was taken from someone at a local Danbury NURSING HOME. The official name of the “Newtown nut house” was the FAIRFIELD STATE HOSPITAL. (renamed Fairfield Hills Hospital). Mentally ill patients who had died were buried on site.

Dr. Taitz found that in 1976-1977, when new SSN laws were adopted, elderly individuals like Harrison Bounel needed to get a SSN in order to get Medicare benefits. “When people were elderly or patients in the psychiatric hospital, the applications were filled out by the hospital employees,” that is, personnel at Fairfield State Hospital probably helped Bounel to fill out his application for a SSN.

According to Wikipedia, Michele Obama’s great great grandfather Jim Robinson’s second wife was Rose Ella Cohen.

A sharp-eyed reader of Taitz’s blog named Marshman noted that in the 1940 Census, right beneath the entry for Harry Bounel was Sam Cohen (line 49), which meant the two men lived next door. Bounel was identified as a “lodger” while Cohen was a “head” of household. Was Rose Ella Cohen a daughter of Sam Cohen?

There you have it:

The original owner of Obama’s stolen Connecticut-issued Social Security number was Harrison J. Bounel, an immigrant from Russia who was born in 1890, who seemed to have had some connection with a Jewish woman named Rose Ella Cohen, who was the second wife of the great great grandfather of Michelle Obama.

This same Bounel, whose Social Security number is one of Barack Obama’s many SSNs, was institutionalized in and probably died in the Fairfield State Hospital, a now-abandoned psychiatric hospital in Newtown, Connecticut which was closed down in 1995. The same Newtown, CT, where on Dec. 14, 2012, an alleged lone gunman named Adam Lanza allegedly shot to death 20 children and 6 adults in the Sandy Hook Elementary School — a massacre that every available evidence and sound reasoning point to it being a gigantic hoax.

What coincidences!!!

Below is a picture of Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital taken by citizen journalist “Barry” in his recent visit to Newtown. Barry said Newtown has a spooky ghost-town quality, with many abandoned buildings like Fairfield. Read his account here.

Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital, Newtown, CT

The weirdness doesn’t end. Stephen Baldwin writes:

Nevertheless, all this mystery surrounding Obama appears to be a generational thing. Researchers have discovered nearly a dozen aliases, at least two different Social Security numbers, and upwards of over 99 separate addresses for [Stanley] Ann Dunham, his mother. […]

The lack of documents regarding Obama also extends to his mother and to his [maternal] grandparents [Stanley and Madelyn Dunham]. Indeed, researchers have been unable to find marriage licenses for his mother’s two marriages, assuming she was ever legally married. Ditto goes for the marriage license for Ann’s parents. They cannot find birth certificates for her, her parents, or for even for her grandparents. Even more so, despite Obama’s boast of his grandfather’s military service, there’s no record of that either. For reasons no one knows, much of Obama’s life, his mother’s life and his grandparent’s life has been erased from the records as if they never existed.

Socialist Bernie Sanders: “I have seen up close the pain, death, and despair caused by war”

Demorats have their panties in a wad over President Trump ordering the drone killing of Iranian militia terrorist, Qasem Soleimani. As noted by Ben Shapiro, “According to Democrats, giving the Iranian terror regime access to hundreds of billions of dollars with no restrictions on terror use or ballistic missile testing was good, and killing the terrorist responsible for hundreds of American deaths is bad.”

That’s what TDS has done to the demorats.

Bernie Sanders is chiming in by claiming he’s got some “personal experience” into the despair caused by war. From a tweet of his on January 3:

As the former chair of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, I have seen up close the pain, death, and despair caused by war. And I know that it is rarely the children of the billionaire class who face the agony of reckless foreign policy.”

Well Bernie, sorry to burst your bubble but I’m going to say that YOUR 39 YEARS of bureaucratic experience doesn’t qualify you AT ANY LEVEL to speak about the pain of war.

There are claims on the internet that his parents were Holocaust survivors. They are not. He’s got nothing on the parental experiences of the pain caused by war.

All he’s got is the bureaucratic talking points.

Bernie Sanders has ZERO military experience so he’s got nothing on the individual experience of the pain caused by war.

All he’s got is the bureaucratic talking points.

Bernie Sanders spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union in 1988

Bernie Sanders has no children so he’s never experienced parental anxiety of the pain caused by war.

All he’s got is the bureaucratic talking points.

I can up you several times, Mr. Sanders:

My father served in the Korean War. His experiences were terrible. I do not care to publicly share the full details I had growing up of his service and the effect it had on him. All I will say is that several childhood events of his “episodes” had a lasting effect on me.

I had three uncles who served in WWII. One of them never came back.

My boyfriend is in the military and has done a tour in the sandbox. Hey Bernie, ever get a text from a loved one in the bunker who is receiving incomings? On Christmas?

These experiences of mine are NOTHING compared to the following U.S. citizens who had NO REQUESTED RESPONSE from the Obama Administration while they were being attacked for a “YouTube video:”

How convenient for Sanders to turn the attack on an U.S. embassy and our much deserved response into an economic warfare card to benefit his clueless sheeple.

I mean really Mr. Sanders, ask yourself this:

ID’s? We don’t need no stinking IDs!

An American citizen who wants to board a commercial airplane must first show a government issued photo identification card to a federal agent, and then undergo a search that includes an X-ray and frequently a hand search of all carry-on items, taking off your shoes and belt, dumping EVERYHHING out of your pockets, and, finally, undergoing a full-body scan, with your hands over your head, by a machine that shows an image of EVERYTHING beneath your clothing as if you had walked through the scanner buck naked. It is the electronic equivalent of a full body strip search.

Oooooh baby!

But, there is one demographic that neither has to show an ID, nor or undergo a security check.

Yes, you guessed it.

Illegal aliens.

Since December 2018, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has permitted illegal aliens released from custody to board domestic flights without having any of 15 forms of identification typically required for airline travel, the Washington Examiner reported exclusively on Thursday. The practice has been in place for at least six months and perhaps considerably longer, according to some sources.

A TSA spokesperson told the Washington Examiner that illegal aliens could fly without identification as long as they provided Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Form I-862, the “Notice to Appear” form that is provided to immigrants who have applied for asylum, passed a credible fear assessment, and could wait up to five years for a federal judge to decide their case.

The form can serve as identification because it is only issued after a background check has been conducted on the applicant while in federal custody, the spokesperson noted.

The TSA’s website lists 15 forms of identification acceptable to travel, which are:

•Driver’s licenses or other state photo identity cards issued by Department of Motor Vehicles (or equivalent)
•U.S. passport
•U.S. passport card
•DHS trusted traveler cards (Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, FAST)
•U.S. Department of Defense ID, including IDs issued to dependents
•Permanent resident card
•Border crossing card
•DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license
•Federally recognized, tribal-issued photo ID
•HSPD-12 PIV card
•Foreign government-issued passport
•Canadian provincial driver’s license or Indian and Northern Affairs Canada card
•Transportation worker identification credential
•U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Employment Authorization Card (I-766)
•U.S. Merchant Mariner Credential

However, form I-862 is not listed as an acceptable form of identification, and it isn’t provided until 180 days after approval of a credible fear claim.

A U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) official told the Washington Examiner that Form I-862’s sole purpose is to tell applicants when to appear in court, and it cannot authorize applicants to travel.

“TSA accepts identification documentation issued by other government agencies, which is validated through the issuing agency. All passengers are then subject to appropriate screening measures,” the TSA said in a statement to Washington Examiner.

But, Republican Rep. Steve King tweeted Wednesday, “Illegals enter the U.S. every day with no ID. Until recently, DHS didn’t even finger print those under 14 but has flown illegals of all ages to every state. No way they all have valid ID’s. If they fly commercial, TSA has to be waiving the valid ID requirement.”

Illegal aliens may have used Form I-862s as identification for travel since 2014.

In 2014, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran told KFOX14 that border patrol agents had observed TSA agents accepting the I-862 form and allowing the illegals to fly wherever they pleased with no questions asked.

“These documents are easily reproduced on any type of copier or home computer, they have no photographs, so there’s really no way to verify that the person holding them is actually who they say they are,” Moran told KFOX14 at the time. “We’re just concerned that the commercial transportation system could be exploited by somebody claiming to be another person.”

“Liberal firebrand” Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2020?

Hillary can barely make it down/up a flight of stairs. How is she going to make it to Wisconsin in 2020?

According to a post from Twitchy:

“Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994.”

Go for it. Can’t wait to see her debate President Trump!

Thousands of ‘migrant caravan’ invaders break through Mexico border fence – Video

Update: Central American ‘caravan’ invaders are in Mexico, now numbering more than 9,000

We must stop allowing the devils of MSM dictate our language.

The thousands of Hondurans and Guatemalans are NOT a “migrant caravan”.

They are INVADERS.

And as you can see from news videos and the pic below, like the Muslim invaders in Europe, the Central American invaders are mainly young, military-age men.

According to Breitbart, the migrant caravan invaders originated in Honduras when about 1,300 “migrants” began an organized march to Mexico toward the U.S. border. Despite the Mexican government’s announcement it would enforce immigration laws and turn back those who do not have a visa, the “caravan” grew in size to more than 4,000.

Yesterday, the migrants invaders broke through a flimsy border fence on Mexico’s southern border and swarmed into Mexico like locusts.

Here’s a dramatic video captured and posted to Facebook by Noticias Telemundo, NBC Universal’s Spanish-American language Telemundo News:

 

Reuters reported yesterday that the border breach took place in the town of Tecun Uman at the Mexico-Guatemala border. The invading horde broke through the border fence “and onto a bridge leading to Mexico, only to be halted by dozens of Mexican police in riot gear.” Mexican police say “a few” officers were injured in clashes.

In a televised address, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called the border breach “unprecedented” and accused some migrants of attacking police: “Mexico does not and will not allow (people) to enter its territory illegally, let alone violently.”

Late yesterday, the governments of Honduras and Guatemala said they were mobilizing to assist the return of Honduran migrants to their homeland. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said he had spoken to his Guatemalan counterpart Jimmy Morales for clearance to send civil protection personnel to help the Hondurans and to find transport for those wanting to return. “We’ll continue this operation for as long as is necessary,” Hernandez said in a post on Twitter. Guatemala’s government tweeted that Hernandez would meet Morales today in Guatemala City to implement a strategy for returning the Honduran migrants.

According to Reuters, Central American “emigrants” from Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras make up the bulk of people now caught trying to enter the United States illegally every year, and that “several migrants” (i.e., INVADERS) at the Guatemala-Mexico border spoke of entire neighborhoods leaving their homes to join the trek invasion after news circulated on social media of a call for a new “caravan” to Mexico six months after the previous one.

President Trump has warned the caravan invasion must be stopped before it reaches the United States, and that all financial aid to Central American countries will be rescinded if the migration was not halted. On Thursday, he threatened to send U.S. troops to close and protect America’s southern border if Mexico did not stop the invasion. Speaking in Scottsdale, Arizona yesterday, Trump said he “appreciated very much” Mexico’s efforts to stop the caravan, but that “If that doesn’t work out, we’re calling up the military – not the (National) Guard – we’re calling up the military. They’re not coming into this country.”

Mr. President (@realDonaldTrump), the time for threatening words is over. It is time for action. Send a battalion of our military to the border to show Mexico-Guatemala-Honduras and the American people you mean what you say.

Seattle VA hospital strands veteran outside ER

This is a restored post from 2015.

Seattle Times: When Donald Siefken drove up to the Seattle VA hospital emergency room earlier this year with a broken foot, all he asked for was a little help getting inside. Instead, a hospital employee who answered Siefken’s cellphone call told him to call 911 himself, then hung up on him, Siefken said.

Frustrated to tears, the 64-year-old retired truck driver and Army vet from Kennewick placed the emergency call while parked just feet away from the ER entrance. “They won’t come out and get me, do you believe that?” Siefken asked an emergency dispatcher, his voice wavering. “They told me to call 911 and hung up on me.”

In response to inquiries about Siefken’s case, a VA spokesman initially told The Seattle Times the hospital’s response was appropriate. “I know it sounds counterintuitive because someone is just 10 feet away, but it is our policy to do that,” said Chad Hutson, spokesman for the Veteran Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System. “Our policy is no different than Harborview or Swedish or other hospitals in Washington.”

But that’s not the case. And, after a reporter requested Siefken’s medical file and other records, the hospital changed its story, issuing a written statement earlier this month.

“After a complete review regarding this Veteran’s visit to the VA Puget Sound Seattle campus emergency room, we have determined we did not do the right thing to ensure the Veteran had assistance into the emergency room,” the statement said. It added that ER personnel “should have called the appropriate staff to come and assist the patient, ensuring he made it into the emergency room safely.” The hospital now plans “corrective actions to ensure this does not happen again to one of our Veterans,” the statement said.

On Tuesday, Dr. William Campbell, the hospital’s chief of staff, also met with Siefken to apologize. “He first called me on Friday, and he was all over himself apologizing,” Siefken said, before Tuesday’s meeting. Citing privacy concerns, the VA declined The Times’ request to observe Siefken’s meeting with Campbell.

“Just wouldn’t listen”

Siefken’s odyssey to a formal apology began on the afternoon of Feb. 27.

While getting ready to drive his wife from their Kennewick home to catch a red-eye flight at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Siefken “stepped down funny and heard a snap,” he said. During the long drive, his foot started to swell and hurt. “So I dropped my wife off at the airport, and headed right up to the VA.” By the time Siefken arrived, shortly after 3:30 a.m., his foot had swollen to the “size of a football” and was throbbing with pain, he said.

Siefken parked outside the ER on the ambulance roundabout and, because he couldn’t walk, called the front desk for help. The worker who answered “couldn’t for the life of him understand why someone from Kennewick was trying to get treated in Seattle,” Siefken said. “I tried and tried to explain it to him, but he just wouldn’t listen.” After an argument, Siefken said, the employee told him, “ ‘No, we’re not going to come get you. You’re going to have to call 911 and you’ll have to pay for that.’ ”

Siefken dialed 911 at about 3:40 a.m., records show. “They won’t come out and get me in a wheelchair,” he told a dispatcher. “How far away from the building are you?” she asked. “Well, I’m right by the ambulance entrance,” he said.

By 3:47 a.m., a Seattle fire captain and three firefighters manning Engine Company 30 arrived to wheel Siefken into the ER. Staff members examined him, took X-rays, put a boot on his foot and prescribed Hydrocodone for his pain.

Siefken, who declined to take the medication for fear he’d be unsafe to drive, drove back home to Kennewick after the hospital wouldn’t put him up for the night. He arrived four hours later, took a painkiller and crawled into bed.

When The Times asked about the case, Hutson initially said the hospital’s policy — like all other VA and private hospitals — was to call 911 to summon emergency medical responders to handle such a situation. “It has to do with liability and to make sure, like in this case, that the right personnel are there to safely extract the person from the vehicle,” Hutson said. (Hospital personnel aren’t the “right personnel” to safely move a patient?)

He added that the VA employee who talked to Siefken had asked, “ ‘Can you call 911?’ And he said, ‘yes.’ This was not an emergency situation, so we didn’t need to make the call for him.”

But that’s not how it happened, Siefken said. “My pain level was a 10 on a scale of 10,” he said, “and they just hung up on me.”

At least one other hospital and the Washington State Hospital Association noted hospital policies for such situations can vary.

“If we have a person that comes up our ambulance ramp in their personal vehicle and can’t make it in, we will transfer them into the emergency department,” said Susan Gregg, spokeswoman for Harborview Medical Center.

Against federal law

A federal law called the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) generally requires most hospitals to conduct a medical screening of anyone who shows up seeking emergency treatment. The law’s so-called “250-yard rule” clarifies that hospitals have an “affirmative obligation” to treat patients — whether they make it inside an ER or not — when they arrive on a hospital campus.

“If you are close to the emergency department, they should basically come up and wheel you into the hospital,” said Barbara Tomar, federal affairs director for the Washington, D.C.-based American College of Emergency Physicians.

EMTALA applies primarily to hospitals that accept Medicare and Medicaid patients. The law doesn’t technically apply to VA hospitals, but the VA voluntarily complies with its policies to provide emergency care “to individual patients presenting to the Emergency Department,” the agency’s Emergency Medicine Handbook shows.

Yet, even in its written statement conceding it mishandled the case, Seattle’s VA hospital noted it does not consider Siefken’s situation an emergency. “Policies used to make the recommendation to call 911 for assistance, at the time of the emergency room visit, did not apply to this particular situation due to the non­emergent needs of the Veteran,” the statement said.

Tomar, whose organization represents 33,000 trained emergency doctors, said a broken foot can pose complications and is widely considered an injury that warrants emergency care subject to the federal law.

On Tuesday, while waiting to meet the hospital’s chief of staff, Siefken said his foot has not fully healed. “They said they’re sorry and they’re going to change things so this doesn’t happen again,” Siefken added. “That’s all I really wanted.”
