Army vet faces trial for posting flags at VA site, Sessions asked to intervene

A 74-year-old U.S. Army veteran is set to go on trial next month for the ‘crime’ of posting two American flags on the fence of a Los Angeles VA facility — and the Justice Department is facing calls to drop the case.

The criminal prosecution of Robert Rosebrock dates back to charges filed under the Obama administration, but conservative group Judicial Watch is hoping new Attorney General Jeff Sessions will take a second look.

“Frankly, President Trump should ask why the VA and his Justice Department are trying to jail this American patriot,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. His group is now representing Rosebrock.

“The federal government’s pursuit of these vindictive charges against Mr. Rosebrock is mind-blowing,” he added.

    Well the more we sit quietly and take what THEY throw at us, the more they will throw. Actions speak louder than words.

    This will be remedied quickly and the ignorant fools enforcing stupid ridiculous rules will be fired. This absolutely defies any logic! Must be Ovomit holdover’s (Nazi maggots).

    AMERICA!! Here a few days back… I ask for you all to send out emails, phone, etc. I don’t know if you all did, or not… but I will say Thank You, if you did, and God Bless
    I did…and even send kind of a note to Mr. Trump’s team, maybe it helped, maybe not… I just Thank God, there will be some help.
    Illegals get away with murder, rapes, child molestation’s, and send free to do such all over again.
    An American Veteran brings attention to misdeeds of the VA and they want to give him fine, and send him to prison??? Something wrong…..with this picture??? And Our Laws???
    All in all….. Thank You, and I Thank the judical system, for looking into this area, God Bless

    Let’s hope our VA representatives let Mr President Trump know of this charges against a veteran just because he wants to be patriotic.

  • Jose says:

    If what I read is correct, there should be a unbiased investigation as to why land/propery that was deeded for veterans needs is being used for other enterprises/businesses have nothing to do with the welfare of veterans.

      I’m sure the VA will have some lame-a$$ excuse that the leasing out to businesses provides vital revenue. There would be plenty of revenue for the VA if the gov’t stopped spending billions on refugee resettlement and took care of our vets instead!!

  • Bob says:

    At least he has a chance with Session. Both Holder and Lynch would have been looking for the max penalty. Had he put up an ISIS flag, he’d be hailed as a hero and Hollywierd would be at his defense.

    Isn’t this amazing, you can spread your prayer rug and block traffic but do not display the American flag.

      Boggles the mind, doesn’t it?

    This is just More Proof obummer was Anti-American and Anti-Vets !
    What a Disgrace he was to Our United States of America . God Bless this man for putting up the flags , we should fly them Everywhere we can !

    1. Nancy D says:

      A visitor from another country once remarked to me that they were amazed by all of the American Flags seen flying above every business and so many homes. This person said you do not see this in other countries. They do not understand our patriotism, our defense of our flag and our resolve never to join the one world order. Look how great that worked out for Great Britain in the EU!

  • Nancy D says:

    Displaying the flag is an act of patriotism, not a crime. This is just another example of a corrupt VA run amok. Read the full story. That land was donated for the care of disabled veterans. The VA has given it over to college and high school sports facilities, a hotel laundry and storage for 20th Century Fox!

  • Nancy D says:

    Jeff Sessions should intervene. Everyone one this site, go to: and call or email.

  • Tbear says:

    Only in Amerika – a place where you get arrested for displaying the flag on government property, but if you burn it or stomp on it you are a ‘hero’!!!!

    1. 3ronald1 says:

      Surely there is more to this story. How can it be that displaying an American flag at a VA facility is a crime?

      1. Nancy D says:

        The VA’s position is that is in unlawful to place any sign or placard on the fence as it is government property. Mr. Rosebrock and others have been placing the flag on the fence every week since 2008 protesting the VA’s treatment of homeless vets and the VA’s leasing of the property to private businesses.The VA decided to press charges about the flags after Mr. Rosebrock took photos of a VA police officer handcuffing and detaining another protester. It is clearly vindictive.

        1. 3ronald1 says:

          Thank you for the explanation. I appreciate it – but, it is still crazy.,,vindictive, but crazy.

      Or display it upside down, right?
