U.S. Govt. Prosecuting Elderly Army Vet for “Posting” American Flags in VA Facility

crew-2231211This of course was started under the fetid command of Barrack Hussein Obama and his ever compliant Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

 

Compliant whenever charges were to be brought against Republicans and Patriots.

Under President Donald Trump, we once again all live in America.

Under Obama and his unconstitutional executive orders that was not always the case.

This is the insanity that was ignored and allowed to unfold under Barack Obama’s tenure.

Will Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice (DOJ) continue wasting taxpayer dollars to criminally prosecute a 74-year-old U.S. Army veteran for posting two American Flags in a southern California Veterans Administration facility? The absurd case was initiated under President Obama, but is set to go to trial in federal court next month under new DOJ leadership.

 

Please help this veteran by are asking AG Jeff Sessions to right the wrongs.  Please share.

How long will it take for U.S. Justice Department attorneys to dismiss this case?

Just as long as it takes to pound the gavel and declare, “Case dismissed.”

Robert Rosebrock, a 74-year-old U.S. Army veteran who goes on trial next month for, wait for it…posting two-six inch American flags on the fence of a Veterans Administration facility in southern California last fall needs Attorney General, Jeff Sessions’ help.

 

Will Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice (DOJ) continue wasting taxpayer dollars to criminally prosecute a 74-year-old U.S. Army veteran for posting two American Flags in a southern California Veterans Administration facility?

The absurd case was initiated under President Obama, but is set to go to trial in federal court next month under new DOJ leadership.

The military veteran faces up to six months in jail for the ghastly offense of affixing Old Glory at a site honoring those who served their country.

Judicial Watch reached out to Sessions’ office but has not heard back from the new Attorney General after various attempts via telephone and electronic mail with the DOJ’s Office of Public Affairs.

Here’s some background; U.S. Army veteran Robert Rosebrock posted a pair of four-by-six-inch American Flags on the outside fence of a VA facility in West Los Angeles on Memorial Day in 2016.

The fence is part of the “Great Lawn Gate” and marks the entrance to the Los Angeles National Veterans Park.

The public facility is part of a larger, 388-acre parcel that includes the Veterans Home of West Los Angeles.

Since 2008, Rosebrock and a group of fellow veterans have assembled at the gate weekly and on Memorial Day to protest the VA’s failure to make full use of the property to benefit veterans, particularly those who are homeless.

 

See the entire article below.

 

The parcel was deeded to the federal government in 1888 for the specific purpose of caring for disabled veterans.

Though it includes the veterans’ homey, the property is also used for a number of unrelated causes.

Among them is a stadium for the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) baseball team, an athletic complex for a nearby private high school, laundry facilities for a local hotel, storage and maintenance of production sets for 20th Century Fox Television, the Brentwood Theatre, soccer practice and match fields for a private girls’ soccer club, a dog park, and a farmer’s market.

Rosebrock and his veterans group were previously advised by VA officials a federal regulation allowed the hanging of the American Flag and the POW/MIA (Prisoner of War/Missing in Action) flag on the “Great Lawn Gate” fence and dozens of full-size American Flags appeared on the fence at once without incident.

But the VA later claimed that it erred in allowing the flags because it incorrectly interpreted the applicable regulation.

Since then, the VA has cited Rosebrock for violating the provision on more than 15 occasions, but the charges were always dropped until now.

Read the flag citation here.

Various federal courts and the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ have recognized a First Amendment right to record police activity.

In fact, in 2012 the DOJ ordered the Baltimore City Police Department to adopt policies that “affirmatively set forth the First Amendment right to record police activity,” yet that same agency is prosecuting Rosebrock for recording police at the VA.

“Recording governmental officers engaged in public duties is a form of speech through which private individuals may gather and disseminate information of public concern, including the conduct of law enforcement officers,” the DOJ writes in its mandate to Baltimore Police.

The measure is intended to apply to other law enforcement agencies nationwide.

Rosebrock’s trial is scheduled for March 7 in a Los Angeles federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Steve Kim. Judicial Watch and Los Angeles attorney Robert P. Sticht are representing Rosebrock served in the U.S. Army in the 1960s at the Schofield Barracks in Hawaii.

    I see the photographs and wonder, is there, a flag pole at that location?
    Why would the old timers put a flag up if there is a flagpole flying the Colors?
    Is there any provision at that VA site, that accommodates for veteran activities? For instance, they go in, fill out a form, and can have Honor Guard ceremonies to raise and lower Colors at the flagpole, and if no flag pole, why not? Then let the veterans post Colors as seen in the photograph.

    When I visit National Cemeteries here, if anyone such as VFW or American Legion, etc., are having a ceremony at the flagpole, I stop, exit the vehicle (or, dismount), come to attention and that’s it, I’m “Caught In The Rain”, and render salute, while Honor Guard is at Present Arms.

    There has to be some kind of thinking on VA’s part to accommodate rather than alienate. Flip side of the coin is, maybe there should be some TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT, at VA facilities for Failing To Do The Job, they are in business to do. This is one reason I avoid the VA. Scumbags.

    I pray this is dropped! There has been so mush damage done to our military, active and retired it is impossible to even begin to scratch the surface Any form of patriotism was looked down upon b/c it interfered with his concept of globalization. He was pushing us towards a one world government and Hillary was meant to seal the deal. That’s what all the UN share the love with certain countries and hate Israel was all about. They had the teams all set up and then England got smart and left the European union and we wised up and wanted to be Americans again. Now all the globalist are crapping their pants and all they know how to do is spread lies about Trump we aren’t buying anymore. The gig is up. Just in time. But the fight has just begun and we must stand together and be strong and firm. That’s my take on y a man would be arrested for placing a flag on a gate. He was trying to be an American and Obama was having none of that. That’s y he never wore the flag pin for all that time or had any respect for it. He had more respect for the gay flag than the US flag! That’s y his wife made the comment “All this for a flag?” during a flag day ceremony.That’s y they are gone! Let’s make America great again!!!!
