    Sasser comments that he “doesn’t believe in conspiracies?” Then what does he call it when the VA, their unions, family members, civilian doctors, state agencies, all politicians, state medical boards, Free Masons, attorney general, veterans groups, media, et al, come against a person to ruin their lives, totally ignore us, retaliate, for merely asking questions about our health care, about our medical files or communications being deleted, and is supposed to be a felony, to being threatened full circle and expected to do insane demands just for pain meds or the most simple of health care needs? All you have to do in dealing with the VA or their contractors is to question them, make a complaint, be forced to deal with internal activist like those who support the BLM, Antifa, Marx-feminist who told me they were not to be questioned, or some other social justice warrior who works there. Or comes out of one of our state’s medical schools that have the bed-side manners of a rattle snake and been through the social engineering of our far left colleges AND med schools. Or here on visas to play doctor. There is no being nice or trying to have a decent discussion with those people or with “Patient Advocates.”

    Lets throw in the local Democrat party who we were told to vote for at the VA for better health care? Then have a three lefty college college town like Terre Haute come against and totally censor those of us with issues from anyone or anything coming from the left. Why is a state like Indiana kept out of major news stories or not mentioned in the wait list for veterans when every other state is mentioned? Or have city council members mantras being “All Democrats must stay on the same page.” And God forbid the council people target you for being out-spoken or disagree with them on some lefty issue. Or laugh and make jest about having the ability to censor us in media or in every local public anonymous forum we have had here for years. To not being able to attend local town meetings for the corruption, nepotism, and retaliation that may come from it. Or having attorneys and their family stand in your way if we have a medical emergency in the hot meeting room, but that’s okay here. Exposing ourselves to all kinds of activist and real haters that have little more to do than target us and make our lives pure hell and separate from their ‘global community.’ None of it is fun. Ahem, and I am one of those evil White men who is supposed to have all that “White Privilege.”

    My last trips to the VA included having my jaw broke and shattered while having a molar pulled, getting ready for dentures. A doctor (Black) that told me she didn’t have time to review my file but then starting changing my meds and telling me I’d have to start twenty years of test and such all over again. Then she quit and the other female MD told me I would be one of the lucky ones to lose my pain meds to make the state and VA look good in prescription stats. Then made it difficult to make other normal specialty clinic appointments and many other games. Oh, but don’t dare mention any wrong doing or complain. Then to have a civilian dentist and oral surgeon cover it all up and the surgeon refuse to give me my real medical file and what they tried to do to correct the damage done by the VA. Took me months for that and didn’t get the same file he wrote in. Hell want more? Then I am a target and the enemy of the state and both local parties and all those in the “Professional class?”

    I feel sorry for Tarref Simon and can fully empathize with his situation. Especially in dealing with family, friends, other vets, etc., who may be getting some decent VA or civilian care, but feel the need to hate us for being outspoken when harmed, threatened, abused, totally neglected, by many or all around us, full circle.

    Now I am going blind trying to type this and need cataract surgeries later on when Medicare supplements kick in. Can I trust anyone here for such things? Not going back to the VA like all tell me to do for any amount of money in the world. My trust and hopes for anything good in Indiana or the town or Terre Haute is totally gone. Same with the nation. Then most just want to play games, worry about Israel with all it’s protected corrupt components, support the have’s more than us, those doing their own things all their lives while ignoring important issues, or to ruining our American history or culture. Sad pathetic days in America. The problems rest on the shoulders and in groups/government/media/entertainment/professionals, Chambers of Commerce, etc., that we are not supposed to mention or criticize, period. Or against those who just want the grand facade of a town or state being the best and not having any major issues or problems that may tarnish the their pathetic lying image sold to the public and in churches who also remain silent for obvious reasons.

    TY John B.

    Why would anyone chase wild Mustangs? That sounds like Horse-hockey. To what end?

  4. bobman September 8, 2017 at 2:53 pm #

    Who was the President when that was built? Then you can find out who was in charge of the VA at the time of this faulty plumbing was installed? Tell President Trumps Administration to investigate this crap.

    What years are we talking about? Where is this VA Hospital Located?

    Was good to have a show like the ‘old days’ when you always had 2 guests & close to a 4 hr. show. I miss those.

      Well I just listened to Tarref Simon. This person is intelligent, informed and so correct in his explanation of the world today. He is worldly wise and a very good individual. It is such a crime that because he only wants good for the world around him he has had to fight for his emotional and physical life. We need more people like him to speak up. That way, maybe our world will survive the war that is going on to eliminate any good there is in our existence. Evil does exist and most of the population are oblivious to it. I am from Canada and I see the same evil up here that occurs in the South.
      It is good to have John B. back on track again. I missed his presence in my day. I have nothing else that fills in the gap when his show goes off the air. Dave Janda is fine but John’s the “Man”. 🙂

    Mr. Sasser is a Rockstar and I’m damned glad to have a chance to listen to his views!

    But, this recurring theme on CTM of splitting our nation into nations seems defeatist and I think it plays into the hands of the nefarious playbook of divide and conquer.

    On the morning of September 11th, long before we knew what had even claimed to have happened, I interacted with many people of several races and political positions. But, for that day, and for a few days afterward, we looked past differences and found comfort in commonality. We were Americans first, THEN Afro-Americans, Irish-Americans, Anglo-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, etc. Everyone helped each other for that albeit brief while, and seeing people being a bit nicer and more polite to each other is forever in my vivid memory.

    As the story told was presented as an act of terrorism against us by radical Muslims, we all seemed to rally cry against their fatah and we ALL openly urged our leaders for payback.

    So, a better suggestion would be, in my humble opinion, that we pledge our allegiance to our one AMERICA, and to the flag for which it stands. That we return to the core Christian beliefs that founded us. It shouldn’t matter what hyphenated word of heritage that you place before your “American”, but, it is the content of your character, to paraphrase from Dr. King.

    If you have values that contradict the collective radically, we just can’t welcome you. If you think your pre-hyphen word entitles you to more than others “American”s, you may have to relocate to the pre-hyphen place you identify with. If you wish a reparation for a malfeasance in the past, provide your proof in civil court and file suit against the ancestors that owned yours.

    Freedom of religion is paramount, until such time as that religion is detrimental to the core value of Christianity. A Jew has no jihad against a Christian. A buddhist has no enemy. Nor does a Taoist. We are ALL enemies of the Wiccan, but, there are common cousins from Catholicism, Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, 7th Day Adventist, Protestant, Evangelical, Episcopalian, etc.

    The others, the Islamists, the Wiccan, the Atheist, the Satanist, the Hindu, the Spiritists, etc., can practice their beliefs, or lack thereof, without impunity, until such time as their belief system disrupts the nation’s allegiance to its Christian core values. When there is a demand to deviate, we must ex-communicate.

    Most other countries demand assimilation for citizenship or long-term stay. They don’t rewrite their government laws and forms in more than 2 languages. Their native language, and English. If you don’t speak either, you must learn, or do without the information. Better ask for a volume discount from Rosetta Stone if you plan on being in a few foreign places for a while . . .

    So, let’s not divide us, let’s bring us together in commonality. You want to have a gay pride parade? Sure! You want to fly a rainbow flag on a government building? Notsomuch. You want to come here and stay here and find ways to preserve your traditions of your homeland? Sure! You want to come here and stay here and make all of US help you preserve the traditions of your homeland? Notsomuchagain.

    But, if you divide this country into portions and regions, you divide the diversity that made this country unique, and, in my opinion, blessed. And the talk of division crosses from race to political affiliation to viewpoints on issues, to religious beliefs. So, where does a boy with a background of Christian faith, yet a plethora of ethnicities in his lineage and a conservative viewpoint, who married a liberal girl of Muslim faith and a pedigree middle eastern ethnicity go with their 2.5 children, dog of mixed breed and cat of pure breed when we are moving us all around? And do they go together or apart? Both being of at least 3rd generation American with no other fluent language but English, and no other flags on their walls or front yard pole other than Old Glory, does the new separatist America force them to divorce? Or do they take away their citizenship and send them to separate “home” countries?

    Together we stand, divided we fall. The Art of War calls repeatedly for the enemy to be conquered from outside and from within. Propaganda. Misinformation. Emotional or rash resolves. Flank and infiltrate.

    We all can agree to disagree, but we should come together when America is threatened by any and all. I saw it firsthand after 9-11. I heard stories of it immediately after Pearl Harbor. The Kennedy Assassination. And on the good side of things, the moon landing. Johnny Carson’s last show . . .

    Let me be clear, though. We have much more information about all but Carson’s departure from the Tonight Show. But, in those moments they unfolded, we didn’t. And we DID come together as Americans. THAT is the spirit that needs preserving. If we stayed together longer during each item of tumult or great triumph, we would have all been searching for more answers and explanations, rather than being lulled back to sheep, I mean sleep, by our handlers . . .

    Unite the United States, by God.

      Sounds sort of ok on paper. Doesn’t work in real life. It’s been tried AND all the “diversity” didn’t make us great 🙂 white Christians made us great, with lots of prayer brains and balls. ( God guns n guts. ) Divided ? THEY already divided us on purpose with all the 3rd world invaders. We now need to UNITE, by creating our own nation again but, ( with 20 20 hindsight, ) better this time. There’s absolutely no more time for lovy dovy talk like that. RE UNITING in 3 sections will calm everything and create an almost Utopia for each “group.” Your way would bring death and destruction … look no further than how many voted for the witch. The NWO had the witch ready to be “the closer.” We would’ve been finished. God answered the remnants prayers.

      I would only go as far as to say, try to make this country as great as we can …. while preparing another model ( like a pitcher in the bull pen, ) for when THEY put someone in after Trump WORSE than the witch AND Obama combined !!!!

      The Middle Eastern ethnicities are wonderful and diverse, however, a “liberal girl of Muslim faith” needs to question why she has not let go of the lie that is Islam. Islam is the scourge of rational open societies, and must be resisted, no tolerance at all.

    Great Show, What a Life, Try to get him back again soon. How about sending some of the GeoE to N Korea?

    The first guest is obviously a “targeted individual” or TI. He knows this because he used the term “gaslighting”. I have been asking for someone to come on and talk about this program. Catherine Austin-Fitts knows quite a bit about it, because she was targeted, as was Dr. Katherine Horton, who was just on “Our Interesting Times” with Tim Kelly. Her website is, I believe.
    Dr Eric Kallestrom is another expert on this subject. I feel for Mr. Simon, because if I am correct, it is going to get worse.
    Sorry to say.

    Sasser rolls like a boss.

    Are we behind a few installments on the Ark Midnight archive? I haven’t been able to find the recent ones.

      I have been wondering the same thing for A LONG TIME! Have pretty much given up trying to find them. Really disappointing.

    Dear John, My wife Pat said there is nothing informative or comical on occasion” as your program and analysis on each days news, so she told me to please become a member again, so we did just Monday the 4th, of September. Thank you much for tossing us a rob to come on board again. ~ Lewis and Pat, Salmon Idaho

    Regarding the question, “what do we do?,” towards the end of hour 3 … the answer is simple, but HOW to do it is complicated.

    What : Divide America into 3 parts. The northeast is for progressive libtards. The west is for Christians of ALL races … but leave 3 states to be “libertarian,” but on a leash. An ENLARGED south ( a new Confederate States Of America, ) is for white Christian patriots ONLY. This is as close as you can get to “pleasing all the people all the time,” AND it even leaves a lot of “illegals” here so the left should LOVE this idea !
    A side note – You might want to GIVE Hawaii to China for debt and some other negotiated benefit (?) and SELL Alaska to Russia to pay for this (?) Also, you’ld want to FIRST deport ALL Muslims Satanists criminal illegals and spy / sleeper cell enemies within. How would you know who they are ? 🙂 The “fusion centers” know who EVERYONE is.

    HOW to do the above ? Now THAT’S a subject for “10” Caravan episodes !!!!!

    I’ll tell you this though. 1. It’s the ONLY answer because there’s no way you can save ALL of America. 2. You don’t have 10 years. You MAYBE have 4 + to 5 + to implement this. Yet we don’t hear it mentioned anywhere …. tick tock tic tock ….
