The latest Betayal of Vietnam Veterans.

Hello Friends and Fellow Veterans:
    Well,  now more people might put more stock into what I say and print/ post.   And the Vietnam Combat Veterans are really on the list for being abandoned when they need medical attention the most !    Most of my friends and readers KNOW that I worked most every day of my life,  from milking cows and feeding steers, and shoveling stink on Dad's farm in S.E. Wisconsin, to welding and working at Chrysler Corp., in Kenosha, Wisconsin for over 30.5 years, etc.   I am not complaining but thankful to the Lord that I had a good job most of my life, also pension and bennies !    
       But we should be wiser than to trust the U.S. Government to keep their word and contracts --- especially to Veterans.   I just find it comforting to be so knowledgeable as the KJV Bible tells us that America may not last too much longer..... however,  "God cannot lie."  ---Titus 1: 2.   And if you cannot find a good, honest, Bible teaching church near you --- best to just start reading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then Romans, and the New Testament....  NOW !   My contact info:   tschuckman@aol.com    [my email].    I am always willing to help.

Have a great day, and keep the Faith.

Warm Regards,
Thomas G Schuckman




The VA’s latest betrayal of Vietnam veterans

President Trump just signed the Mission Act, which is supposed to help ailing US veterans get prompt care, including the ability to see a civilian doctor on Uncle Sam’s tab.
Don’t count on it.
The fine print shows that vets are guaranteed nothing. The Veterans Affairs secretary is simply empowered to make rules for who gets civilian care. Though Trump and his pick for secretary, Robert Wilkie, favor making it easy for vets, Wilkie’s rules could last only as long as Wilkie remains in office. Worse, they don’t go into effect for two and a half years.
That’s too late for the hundreds of Vietnam vets, now in their 60s and early 70s, who are carrying a dangerous parasite picked up in Asia called liver fluke. Many don’t know it, but it’s a ticking time bomb likely to kill them.
Scandalously, the VA is doing zip to identify and treat these infected vets, even though an ultrasound test can detect liver-fluke infection in minutes and medicine can slow its progression into lethal bile-duct cancer. If there were ever an example of vets needing to be in the driver’s seat about getting outside care, this is it. But the Mission Act requires them to get their VA doctor’s permission first.
Remember the nation’s shock in 2014 when 40 vets died on secret waitlists concocted by VA bureaucrats? That toll is miniscule compared with the deaths being caused right now by the VA’s neglect of vets with liver fluke.
In January, researchers at the Northport, NY, VA found that one out of every five vets tested who remembers eating raw fish in Vietnam — a common practice when rations ran out — is carrying the parasite. More than 100,000 vets could be infected. The parasite lingers in the body for decades, and then — wham — can suddenly cause deadly bile-duct cancer. Some 80-90 percent of them will develop the cancer if their infection goes untreated, according to New York physician Dr. John Cahill, an expert on parasites.
“It’s a huge number,” says Dr. Devi Nampiaparampil, associate professor at New York University Langone Medical Center.
Cahill says he’d like to see every vet who ate raw fish while in Vietnam contacted for an ultrasound.
Instead, the VA is serving up gibberish, claiming “there is currently no evidence that vets have higher infection rates than the general population.”
That’s ridiculous. You can’t get infected with liver fluke in the US. The parasite doesn’t exist here. Cahill calls bile-duct cancer “extremely rare” among the US population. The other highest-risk group is Asian-Americans who travel or once resided in Southeast Asia.
Here’s another whopper. The VA is telling vets if they don’t have jaundice or other symptoms, “they don’t need screening.” In fact, Nampiaparampil stresses that by the time those symptoms appear, the cancer has often progressed too far.
The VA claims there’s “no definitive link” between the parasite and cancer. In truth, there’s a pile of research linking the two. Researchers at Tulane and George Washington University proved the link in 2007 in an article “Liver Fluke Induces Cholangiocarcinoma.” So did findings in the journal Cancer Science in 2010, calling liver-fluke infection “the strongest risk factor” for cancer of the bile duct.
The VA double talk is typical. They did the same thing with service-linked ailments from the Gulf War. This time the VA is launching a “large-scale epidemiological study” that will be ready in about two years.
Pile up reports and do nothing. You could pave over Washington, DC, with the reports produced by the VA.
Meanwhile, Facebook and local newspapers are chronicling the deaths of Vietnam vets from liver-fluke-related cancer.
Time is running out. Vietnam vets need to be contacted, tested if they ate raw fish and treated if they have the infection. The Mission Act isn’t going to save them or other sick vets, any more than previous VA “reform” laws, all hailed by self-congratulating Washington pols when they were passed.

When farmer's market season rolls around, I love to stock up on whatever's in season.

There's nothing like fresh.

I often go in without a plan, and let whatever looks good drive the menu for the week.

But if there's one thing I can't stand is waste.

It feels bad when something goes bad in my fridge. It's like a personal failure.

Not just because it's money down the drain... it's like throwing nutrition out the window too.

Now, as I've mentioned, your freezer can be a lifeline when something looks like it's on the brink and you don't have plans to use it.

But why not keep things as fresh as possible for as long as you can?

I read some good tips lately from a former "produce supervisor" at the Institute of Culinary Education's purchasing department.

(That's fancy language for someone whose whole job was buying good produce - and protecting it).

Here are my favorite takeaways...

1. Choose wisely. If you don't pick good produce in the first place, no storage tip is going to help. Makes sense. If that apple is banged up or the kale is limp... choose something else.

2. Get back to your roots. Crunchy root veggies last a good long time. Think carrots, beets, turnips. But prep is key too. So remove the carrot tops and beet greens when you get home. Leaving them intact pulls moisture from the good parts. But don't throw those greens away. They're great in soups, broths or even smoothies.

3. Don't pre-wash. Moisture = spoilage. Scrub up your veggies only as you use them.

4. Let it breathe. If you bring home greens in a plastic bag, leave it open so moisture doesn't collect. And take off any rubber bands, so the leaves don't get compressed.

5. Herbs need TLC. It's best to roll up herbs in a slightly damp paper towel, and place the bundle in a bag.

6. Inspect your fruit, and separate it. It's true that one bad apple can spoil the bunch. The gas a ripe apple throws off ripens the rest. So try not to keep ripe fruits from those that aren't quite ready... unless you're ready to eat them!

Do you have any other tips you'd like to share? If so, let me know!

I'm feeling a little inspired. A big, hearty salad with a little added protein like fish, chicken or hard-boiled egg can be a great meal that's ready in a pinch.

And it sure sets Ellie to drooling too.

I'm not sure who likes carrots more - me or her!

God Bless,

"Gud kan ikke ligge."  --- Titus 1: 2.    [Norwegian] 


Dear Friends and Avid Readers all over the World:
      Now,  after I've just read this great article about Tommy Robinson,  I understand so much more, and hope to share it with all of YOU !    Certain 'writers' go with a wordy, verbose, intellectual Elite, "Style"  of communication, that bores people to death.   In high school,  Speech Class, Waterford, Wisconsin, USA., instructor, David Molten,who went on to become the Drama/ Plays conductor --- and moved on to become a Professor at a  local WI., college,  trained us,  'teeny-boppers' the inner workings of real SPEECH, back in 1967,  when I was a senior, and the next year I was sent to Germany, and then 2-- years in the Republic of Vietnam [68-70].   Since then,  I learned to speak in front of hundreds of people, in Town Hall municipalities, in church, often enough, including my stint with a top Financial company.  
        Well,  the reason why I am starting with this is because I believe that it's important to learn how to speak well, clear, and understandable in life,  so that others will not find it hard to understand by your speech.   People can and do DIE because of misunderstanding another's speech and directions.   Satan the devil WANTS and DESIRES the whole world to walk the wrong way,  and to mislead the entire inhabited Earth, and miss out of everlasting life in Heaven with the Father, the Son, and all the Saints !!   Satan the devil is a truly wicked person--spirit, and he has many followers in his Army on Earth,  and they all love to destroy,  people, places and things !   Do not be fooled by his many 'faces.'

Read and absorb the following downloaded lesson, please,  to fully understand exactly what is going on in England and Europe RIGHT NOW !   Many folks believe that Europe is already LOST to Satan and the Islamic 'faith' right now,   but I believe that some places like:   Hungary, Norway, Poland, Austria and most or parts of Russia,   Croatia,  plus where our beautiful, highly intelligent,  "First Lady, Melania Trump",  from the country of  Slovenia,   are still putting up a fine fight against the Islamic hordes.   Forgive me if I left out any other countries in my short list,  please.    
     Some educated, Christians, believe that President D.J. Trump, was put in place here in the USA., in a 'blocking action,' while more good people can be "Saved" to enter Heaven, after they bend knee and accept the Lord Jesus Christ.   …… Before the roof comes crashing down and the "Great Tribulation" starts for it's 7 year torture, ending with Armageddon,  Revelation 16: 16.   
        Friends,  for many years I used to think that "Head Knowledge" was the most important thing....  but then, about 5 years ago,  I  discovered that the HEART CONDITION [ matters of the Heart] ----  Deep Love for Jesus Christ, His Father God, the Holy Ghost --- and allowing the Spirit to change our hearts, mind, and body to do the RIGHT/ Proper things that a real Christian should do,  as is humanly possible.   That is really "Agape Love."   Yes,  I was wrong,  to that extent,  but heavy, heart felt Prayers helped me see the light,  Thank God !   Life and doing the right thing is STILL a challenge for me,  as my old, beat up body and severe pain wrack me on a daily basis.   
        And many others have it worse than me.   I need to reach out and make more friends and perhaps share some of our tiny treasures and ideas.   One of my simple suggestions [and I am not a doctor], is that I take 2--capsules of "Turmeric Extract", also Fennel to protect my tender stomach and Cinnamon Extract, too.   I suffer from Arthritis, and too many truck and motor cycle accidents, and worked hard all my life, especially in the skilled trades, etc.   

And did I tell you recently that the Optical shop at the Local VAMC in Iron Mountain, Michigan 49801., messed up my eye glasses prescription TWO TIMES IN A ROW SO THAT I SIMPLE COULD NOT WARE THEM AT ALL !!  ??  !!   They first sent me someone else's scripts and after I tried them on,  I almost passed out from being dizzy.   They tried to sweep that episode under the rug...  Ha!   Sorry, folks,  but I can never trust their judgment farther than I can spit.   I always DOUBLE CHECK all of their instruction and terminology, actions and medicines.   President Trump is trying to help and fix things,  but I fear that much more tweaking will be done.   
    IMHO.....   People in the world only do half a job, and they just cannot think clearly,  because they are so much into despair, over medicated, and have a hopeless, negative feeling about the world in general.   We are now living on borrowed time and the world "senses" some terrible collective tragedies will somehow pop up  [if they only knew, or studied the Bible...]   And we just cannot change the Will and Plan of Father God.

John 14: 27,   "Let not your heart be trouble,  neither let it be afraid."     And verse 30.,  "Hereafter I will not talk much with you:  for the prince of this world cometh,  and hath nothing in me."  [-- Jesus speaking--].

June 15th, 2018
President Donald Trump made history on June 12 when he met face to face with Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator. They held their summit in Singapore.

The President has received both fawning praise and scathing criticism for sitting down with Kim. And, to some extent, both camps have valid points.

But I've been amused at how many commentators have criticized the President for getting no concessions from Kim and for giving up so much in return. I'm not sure if they are duplicitous or merely stupid.

At this point, no one has conceded anything and no one has received anything. All either man offered were intentions. And intentions can change overnight.

These weren't even real negotiations. All this summit did was produce a point from which to start.

The two leaders agreed on four goals they would like to achieve. NOW, the negotiations begin. And it's too early to pronounce victory or defeat for either side.

Of course, that doesn't matter to the mainstream media. They will pounce on any opportunity to deride the President and ignore any impetus to praise him.

But what's new?

However, one event the mainstream media chose to ignore -- and does so annually -- was the recent meeting of the Bilderberg Group in Turin, Italy.

In the past, the press tacitly agreed not to cover the secretive meetings so that the public would not become alarmed at what the world leaders in government and business were discussing. But even the founders and integral leaders have publicly admitted that what they're interested in is a one-world government. For our own good, of course. To save the planet and humanity.

This year, topics on the agenda included artificial intelligence, robotics, genetics, and the inevitable merging of human bodies with machines. In other words, the 150 or so world leaders focused on technologies that will play a crucial role in the Antichrist's future world government.

One of Bilderberg's most prominent proponents, the late David Rockefeller, once noted: "The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."

"Autodetermination" means "self-determination." Fear of "self-determination", what we call democracy, is standard fare among global elites.

A "supernational sovereignty" is fascinating in the light of Bible prophecy. It doesn't mean eliminating the present nations. They would continue to exist. But there would be another governmental authority above those nations.

That's precisely what the Bible describes happening during the Tribulation period.

But during the last two years, new and extreme nationalist movements in many nations have threatened the globalists' plans. As I've noted before, both the "globalists" and the "nationalists" are sure signs of the end times.

According to the Bible, though, the globalists will eventually win. But only temporarily. Not long after Antichrist solidifies his position as the world's leader, the cracks will begin to emerge.

Global government will end with a world war of unprecedented horror. We usually refer to that war simply as Armageddon.

There's a war going on in the United Kingdom right now. In fact, it's a fight for survival. Britain's survival.

As the Muslim immigrant population of the UK has skyrocketed, so have certain unpleasant realities that invariably accompany the infiltration by Islam.

One of those alarming developments is the introduction and dramatic increase in "child grooming gangs." I've covered this Muslim phenomenon on the show before.

Several cities in Britain have uncovered and prosecuted gangs of Muslim men who cultivate relationships with young children and then later lure them into child and sex-trafficking. In one city alone, more than 1,400 young girls were lured away or outright kidnapped and held as slaves, then sold as sex objects to other men.

Thousands of British children have been abducted or lured into bondage. Worse, there has been a sinister cover-up by the British government for the sake of political correctness. The British newspaper, The Mirror, called it a "Conspiracy of Silence."

But one right-wing activist has not been silent. Because he is the subject of continual death threats and fatwas from the Muslim community, he goes by the pseudonym of Tommy Robinson.

Tommy has written books, made television appearances, organized rallies and marches, and produced news stories and documentaries for international organizations. His constant call is for Britain to wake up and realize that they are being conquered from within by the mushrooming Muslim immigrant population.

In his words, he is fighting the "Islamization" of Britain and Europe.

In late May, Tommy was arrested while standing on the public sidewalk outside the courthouse in Leeds. He was live-streaming on his cell phone the arrival of several defendants in the "child grooming gang" trial that was in progress.

He was not in the courtroom. He was not confronting the defendants. He was merely live-streaming their arrivals.

But the British authorities and their "conspiracy of silence" apparently felt that it could incite British citizens to take action.

So they arrested Tommy. But they did more. In a matter of six hours, Tommy was arrested, tried without sufficient due process or representation, and sentenced to 13 months in jail.

Further, the judge then issued a gag order prohibiting any news organization in Britain from reporting on the sentence.

Tommy was remanded to a minimum-security facility. Then a couple of days ago, he was moved to a much more hardcore facility where he is housed with the general population. The problem is that the population is predominately Muslim. Further, the reputation of the prison is that the Muslim inmates are so violent that they actually run the facility.

Reports are that Tommy is being harangued and threatened hourly by the Muslim inmates. A British imam has even issued a fatwa for Tommy's death.

In 2013, The New York Times reported, "Britain has a long tradition of a free, inquisitive press." Then it ominously added, "Unlike the United States, Britain has no constitutional guarantee of press freedom."

A "long tradition" can be easily erased by a short "judicial ruling." And it has.

Tommy Robinson has consistently warned Britain about "fake refugees who have no intention of integration and no intention of assimilation." In today's United Kingdom, that's more than controversial. It's blasphemy against the new god of political correctness.

Whether you approve of Tommy Robinson's methods or history, please pray for him that he will survive this malicious and targeted persecution. He is, unfortunately, a voice crying in the wilderness that all of Europe and even the United States needs to heed.

In the last few days, the world has been shocked by the suicides of the designer Kate Spade and the celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

Sandwiched between the two tragic events, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released some startling new statistics: From 1999 to 2016, suicides in America rose almost 30%. It is now the 10th leading cause of death in the US. There is a suicide every 12 minutes in our nation. In 2016, more than 45,000 Americans took their own lives.

People are looking for escape -- in a bottle, in a syringe, or in death. But what are they trying to escape? Despair. Hopelessness. Meaninglessness.

Not only is there an epidemic of suicide, there is an epidemic of despair in America.

On this week's program, I will share with you some of my thoughts on why this is happening and the only hope that those in despair truly have.
