A Warning about the Cult-like Darkside of Extortionist Bob Rosebrock and His Old Veterans Guard!!!
Set forth below is also Updated information and New Stories and Links about Rosebrock that you can read prior to or after you read the entire story.
LOS ANGELES, CA – Outwardly and at first sight, Rosebrock appears to most as a hero… But in fact he is only does what he does for the limelight. And if anyone tries to steal his limelight even unintentionally or contact any of his sources in person, on the phone, or by e-mail even for the most benevolent reason Rosebrock will endeavor to destroy their lives with lies and fabrications of events…
The photo above is that of “Public Figure” or “Limited Public Figure” Robert Lea Rosebrock a/k/a Bob Rosebrock, a “so-called” Veterans Advocate, and Director of the Old Veterans Guard and Veterans Revolution, and a self-proclaimed “Bully” who recently admitted in an E-mail to this Author that in-fact he is a “Bully” believes he can mistreat, ridicule, verbally and emotionally abuse, and Libel and Slander, and otherwise Fabricate Lies about people both in person, through nasty E-mails he sends to them, and through published stories he writes about them and get away with all of it without impunity or an equal response from his “Victims” because of his 6-feet and 4-inch height, and weight of about 250-pounds, and his “Bully”-Like tactics…
But as you will see, through a series of nasty E-mails which will be displayed starting in Part-2 of this story which were sent by Rosebrock to Veterans including this Author who once supported what Rosebrock was doing and tried to help him, you will see that “Poor Bully Bob” does not like it when his Victims just peacefully fight-back with an equal or greater response, or not so peaceful a response according to Rosebrock(???) that one well-known Vietnam War “Combat” Veteran allegedly perpetrated against Rosebrock who is about the same age as Rosebrock but about half-his size, and which caused “Poor Bully Bob” to get all shook-up and endeavor to file for a Permanent Restraining Order against him… One other very important piece of information you will want to immediately know before Part 2 in case you currently are or have associated with Rosebrock… Rosebrock is “an ear”, a “street-name” meaning “an informant”, “stool-pigeon”, or “tattletale”… So if you have told Rosebrock anything “Confidential” he will later use it against you to try and “extort” or “blackmail” you… And even if that Confidential information you told him is “benign” or he or he has nothing on you, then Rosebrock will “Fabricate a Lie” and use it against you, for example, by being “an informant” to the VA openly or anonymously, to vengefully get homeless, disabled or financially disadvantaged Veterans kicked-out of homeless Veterans Programs, the very same Veterans he says he is trying to help???
You may ask for what reasons does Rosebrock perpetrate all these horrendous acts??? The short answer is that it is “Retaliation” for just simply disagreeing with Rosebrock and his “Old-Veterans Guard’s” plans on how best to help homeless, disabled, and disadvantged Veterans and offering him an alternative plan, and then endeavoring to implement that alternative plan, especially if you had participated in Rosebrock’s Sunday “Demonstration-Rallies” and then quit… “You’re either with Us or against Us” is a phrase often used by Rosebrock… Thus, leading to the “Cult-Like” “Retaliation” and “Vengeance” and other questionable activities by Rosebrock and his “Old Veterans Guard” who Rosebrock sometime just calls “The Old Guard”, a name Rosebrock stole from the real “Old Guard”, the oldest U.S. Military Unit of its kind… A Matter of Stolen Valor Perpetrated by Robert Lea Rosebrock http://vnsla.com/2013/07/22/rosebrockstolenvalor/
Writer’s Note: I deeply regret having to Write this story and others that may follow, but Bob Rosebrock’s wrongful actions and omissions against me, et al, and Cult-like Behaviors, among other things, left me no choice… Also below you will see in my signature section of emails referring to stories that can be found on Veterans Corner by Terry Richards which is now Archived. You can find the same and updated stories now@: www.vnsla.com/about
What is a “Public Figure” or “Limited Public Figure” and can they be Libeled or Slandered??? Whenever someone makes a verbal statement or writes a piece on Public Figure Bob Rosebrock that is unfavorable to him he verbally or in writing states that he has been Libeled and Slandered. Virtually, however, Rosebrock cannot be Libeled or Slandered because he is Public Figure or Limited Public Figure just as this Writer is at least Limited Public Figure…
What is the Legal definition of Public Figure: An individual or entity that has acquired fame or notoriety or has participated in a particular public controversy see also limited purpose public figure compare public official NOTE: A public figure must prove actual malice in order to prevail in a defamation action. In matters of libel, public figures are not as other mortals, according to the U.S. Supreme Court. In a series of cases since 1964, the court has ruled that a public figure cannot collect libel damages without proving that “actual malice” was involved in the publishing of inaccurate and defamatory material. A description applied in Libel and Slander actions, as well as in those alleging invasion of privacy, to anyone who has gained prominence in the community as a result of his or her name or exploits, whether willingly or unwillingly.
Limited purpose public figure: a person who voluntarily and prominently participates in a public controversy for the purpose of influencing its outcome and who is thus required as a public figure to prove actual malice in a defamation suit called also limited public figure compare public figure.

Below in an E-mail written by Rosebrock are “Barrages of Vitriol” and “Anger” from Bob Rosebrock against Jewish Chaplain Dov Cohen who is the President of the Resident’s Association at the California Veterans (CALVET) Home located on the property of the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, all because Cohen contacted people Rosebrock does not like, and because Cohen wanted to have a Veterans “stand-down” differently than Rosebrock want it. It is followed by Cohen’s E-mail response to Rosebrock with a Preface to me explaining the circumstances. You should duly note in comparison to Rosebrock’s threatening and disrepectful words and tone of his E-mail to Cohen, the respectful and almost pleasant language and tone Cohen responds to Rosebrock’s Nasty E-mail…. This E-mail to Cohen is just one of many Typical Nasty E-mails Fellow Veterans and others get, and that you will get from “Bully” and “Control Freak” Bob Rosebrock when you disagree with him on how to help homeless, disabled, and financially disadvantaged Veterans with such things as “stand-downs” or housing alternatives to Veterans Homes such as HUD-VASH Housing Vouchers, or you contact certain people that Rosebrock has interacted with and whom he believes he personally owns. You should also duly note the Cult-like manner in which Rosebrock talks about his Cult-like Veterans Old Guard a/k/a Old Guard a/k/a OG. And after you read the language and tone in which Rosebrock writes the E-mail below, and others to be published in the near future, you will see how it reinforces my allegations of Rosebrock’s “Bully” and “Control Freak” Behavior as well as understand how badly Rosebrock needs Mental Health Psychiatric Treatment.

Subject: Cease and Desist April 25, 2012
Attention DOV Cohen
Once again you are telling lies and seriously distorting the truth. As I said before, at least you are consistent in your hell-bent mission to destroy me and everything that the Old Veteran Guard has accomplished, while serving yourself and your political and VA bureaucrat friends.
This is a formal notice for you to “Cease and Desist” from spreading any more slanderous lies about me, the latest … that I do not support a Veteran Stand Down.
But, let me be very clear; neither I, nor the Old Veterans Guard, support any stand down that you are involved with because you are not working in the best interests of Veterans, but for your own self-serving interests and as a shill for Henry Waxman, Dianne Feinstein, Zev Yaroslavasky, Donna Beiter, Ralph Tillman, Sue Young, all who have a record of being against shelter for homeless Veterans on Veterans property, but instead support a public park where we want our Stand Down.
Nearly a quarter-century ago, Sue Young led the charge to block homeless shelter on Veterans property, but has instead used her wealth and power to finagle a public park for her fat-cat fellow homeowners.
“We know there is a homeless problem out there, but the Veterans Administration property is not the place to solve it.”
Sue Young, President of Brentwood Homeowner Association
“Plans to House Homeless on VA Property Dropped”
Los Angeles Times, Sheldon Ito, March 17, 1988
This is to once again confirm that I have always been, and still am, in full support of a legitimate Stand Down, and your false claims that I do not support a Stand Down are libelous.
If I hear one more report that Dov Cohen is bad-mouthing me and falsifying my intentions, I will seek legal recourse for slander, defamation of character, etc.
Our Stand Down plan (attached) was proposed in 2009 and the VA has defied any Stand Down of any sort for decades and now you’re trying to give them cover with some half-ass token stand down to appease your political cronies and VA bureaucrats at the expense of all the good that has been done heretofore.
We have a federal lawsuit against Donna Beiter and Secretary Shinseki for failing to use this land to house Veterans with proper care, and the ACLU is doing its own due-diligence with discovery and depositions.
It is very clear that you do not support the ACLU lawsuit or Vietnam Veterans of America as a Plaintiff, but instead, you are trying to run interference with some sort of settlement appeasement of your own for the benefit of Waxman, Feinstein, Yaroslavsky, Beiter, Tillman, etc.
Councilman Bill Rosendahl is the only politician who has openly proclaimed support of the ACLU lawsuit, including full support of a legitimate Stand Down, and we will continue working with him and his staff and push toward a Court-Ordered Stand Down, mandated by a Federal Judge and it will be legitimately operated by Vietnam Veterans of America in cooperation with other VSO’s, community leaders, professionals, businesses, etc.
We will organize and execute the best Stand Down in America and it will be for more than three days. Our mission is not only to get homeless Veterans some temporary shelter, but jobs and permanent shelter … not just patch them up with clean clothes to go back and live in back-alley squalor … but to become proud and productive members of our society that they protected under the watch.
And we will hold it on the Grand Lawn where Sue Young of Veterans Park Conservancy (VPC), wants to build her public park, and not in some far-removed parking lot where you and the VA want to hold one.
Read the attached first ACLU lawsuit. I’ve been pushing for homeless shelter and your friends at the VA have been hell-bent on stopping it as they and Cong. Waxman, Sen. Feinstein and LA County Supervisor Yaroslavsky support Sue Young’s public park, just as you apparently do.
It is my understanding that you had Sue Young / VPC, speaking before the Cal-Vet Home Veterans yesterday.
Take a serious look at the attached Emergency Homeless Stand Down plan and note where Sue Young wants to remove vans, campers, cars, etc. along San Vicente adjacent to the VA where many homeless and disabled Veterans live in their vehicles so that they can be close to the VA hospital for their needed care.
Sue Young calls homeless Veterans who sleep in their vehicles next to her pretentious fence “visual blight.”
Sue Young used her wealth and power to get $1 million of Veterans healthcare money to build the fence to “beautify the entryway into Brentwood,” and then requested a “no parking” zone for aesthetic reasons, “so that the public would have an unobscured view of the National Veterans Park site in a dignified setting befitting the landmark property.”
Sue Young has absolutely no respect for any Veteran, unless it is wealthy retired General or Admiral that she can use to promote her public park “for the benefit of the entire community” — the same community where the Generals and Admirals live in safe comfort.
Note in the attached Stand Down plan that has a photo of non-Veteran
Sue Young insulting and disrespecting Stephen Sherman, a 90-year old, disabled World War II Veteran, because she did not want him in her presence while she entertained her fat-cat friends on Veterans property. Sue Young is a disgrace and you bow down and kiss her ring by inviting her on Veterans sacred grounds.
Did you ask Sue Young any “real” questions, like if she supports the ACLU lawsuit, and why the American Legion, Department of California, the Annenberg Foundation, and Carolina Winston Barrie, a Plaintiff in the ACLU lawsuit and a descendant of land donor Arcadia B. de Baker, have all formally requested that their good names not be associated with Veterans Park Conservancy?
The Annenberg Foundation was willing to forgo the $1 million they were hoodwinked into donating for the so-called rose garden, and requested not to have their name sullied by this rogue homeowner group that operates under the ruse of being a Veterans organization.
Like these well-informed people, I have formally announced that the Old Veterans Guard does not approve of VPC’s misappropriation of Veterans land for a public park — and I’ve done it repeatedly — including herein.
I also sent you a formal notice separating myself and the Old Veterans Guard from YOU and YOUR self-serving mission … not the Veteran residents at the Cal-Vet Home … of whom you are manipulating and defrauding by bringing the very ones who orchestrated this land takeover and whom the Old Veterans Guard seriously opposes and refuses to acknowledge or meet, with the exception of fellow-Veteran Bill Rosendahl.
Once again Mr. Cohen, stop plagiarizing my letters and passing them off as your own, stop stealing the Old Veterans Guard Stand Down plans; stop trying to undermine all the good that has been done, including the ACLU lawsuit in which Vietnam Veterans of America is a Plaintiff; stop deceiving the general public, politicians and the VA bureaucrats that you are representing Vietnam Veterans of America; and stop spreading false accusations and scandalous lies about me. You are in over your head.

It simply says what it says. I met Bob for the first time on February 26th, 2012, invited him here for a 20 minute opening introduction at our March Residents’ Council Meeting, March 6th, and then again for two uninterrupted hours on March 13th. I was “consistent” in keeping my word in supporting Bob, giving him a platform within this home (for which I was severely criticized) and promoting his effort for veterans causes, efforts that I have and continue to “consistenty” praise and respect. I shared with him that I would invite everyone (elected and civilian speakers) I have invited and there were no surprises nor any “throwing him under the bus” or demonstrating any disrespect. I have “consistently” acknowledged d Bob’s efforts and passion, never detracting even once from his dedication; I still do credit him every chance I get, as Bill Rosendahl can attest. When Bill Rosendahl spoke here April 17th, he praised my efforts; I immediately challenged him, stating publicly before the 43 assembled that this was all because of Bob Rosebrock’s energy and dedication, to which Bill added, “Bob’s my hero, too,” to which all assembled applauded. Hardly what one would do if there was any “throwing under the bus” or disrespect going on. If you see Bill Rosendahl or Jim Horwitz, please confirm exactly what I am relating to you. Terry, thanks for your input; hope Bob will eventually realize that I’m on his side; just have had and always have been consistent (as Bob writes) in utilizing another approach. There is no “right” or “wrong” so long as we achieve the ultimate goal of helping fellow vets. I believe that what Bob and the ACLU are doing is vitally important; that said, it does not diminish what I am doing. I have never suggested BOB should not follow through with lawsuit; that’s Bob approach and he has more than four hard years invested. However, there are other ways to help get this Stand Down up and running until and, when the court releases its decisions, decisions that could take much longer to final solution. My doors are always open and my phone will always be answered to Bob and his Old Guard; but attacking me is not the most effective way to proceed.

Your energies are best invested in the noble causes you have championed for more than the past four years. On April 18th, Bob, you wrote to me: “We’ve got everything to guide us along … we just need to solidify a date and cooperation from the VA. I have great faith that you will accomplish that.” Bob, I have great faith that I will, too; I hoped we could do this together! As I proceed to do so, to gain cooperation from the VA with your earlier encouragement, you let loose this barrage of vitriol on Friday, just two days later. Good luck to you, Bob, as you and the Old Veterans Guard continuing to try to assist veterans’ causes in your way. We were on the right track working together, albeit from different approaches, but with your full and complete knowledge. I even asked you for important questions to pose; you sent them to me and I distributed them to our veterans to be asked. You are still “my hero.” DOV PART 3 THE “DARKSIDE” OF “CONTROL FREAK”, “BULLY” AND “VA INFORMER” ROBERT (BOB) ROSEBROCK December 29, 2012 (about 635pm) TO ALL: Set forth below are examples of How and Why Bob Rosebrock Twists The Truth or just plain Lies in order to Fabricate Allegations Against People. It has been updated for correction of spelling only. All of Rosebrock’s words and responses are identified as Bob Rosebrock Writes followed by Black printand my responses are identified in Terry Richards Writes followed by this Brown print…
Terry Richards Writes
It’s ashame that Bob Rosebrock has such Low Self-Esteem that the only way he can make Himself Feel Good is by Putting-Down and falsely and verbally assaulting others, Twisting The Truth, or just plain Lying in order to Fabricate Allegations Against People, especially other Veterans Advocates so that it makes the work of helping homeless and disabled Veterans by other Veterans Advocates irrelevant compared to Rosebrock’s work… Yet, Rosebrock states below that he Himself does not like to be falsely and verbally assaulted… The Low Self-Esteem Rosebrock suffers from is more likely than not from Rosebrock being Severely Verbally and Emotionally Abused, Criticized and Ridiculed as a Child by one or both of His Parents who were probably also Very Controlling. And Rosebrock never receiving Psychiatric Treatment has all this Left-Over Baggage from Childhood which he maintains to this day at age 70… ROSEBROCK’S RESPONSE TO MY E-MAIL OF 12-26-2012 (Which I will respond to in first or second person) ______________________________________________________________________
Bob Rosebrock Writes December 26, 2012 Mr.Terry Richards One need not read beyond your opening sentence “It was not until I left the Domiciliary where my mind was occupied fighting a more important battle for myself ..” to know that you are completely absorbed with your own self-serving, self-pity. Terry Richards Writes Here in the First Paragraph above, Rosebrock intentionally failed to add that in addition to my stating: “a more important battle for myself” I also stated “and other Veterans” which is just the first example proving my above allegations about Rosebrock…
Bob Rosebrock Writes Your false and scurrilous accusations against me while trying to elevate your bloated self-righteousness simply underscores your irrelevance in helping in the cause to save our Veterans land and to bring our homeless Veterans “Home,” a mission you have openly opposed.
Terry Richards Writes I have personally spoken to over 100 Veterans over the last 9-months at the Domiciliary and in “Skid-Row” and other locations in Los Angeles, and Chaplain Dov Cohen has Statistics from interviews at 2-stand-downs he participated in, and the VA has the same statistics and the Consensus is Bob that 80% of homeless Veterans DO NOT want to live in Veterans Homes on VA Property as their PERMANENT RESIDENCE where they are subject to Urine and Breath Testing for Drugs and Alcohol, Curfews, and unable to have overnight guests, especially Women, or guests in their room at all… No doubt Bob that the vast majority of the 20% who do want to live in Veterans Homes on VA Property are physically disabled using crutches, canes, walkers, or in wheelchair or severely mentally ill but who can still take care of themselves without Assisted Living. But you would not know any of this Bob because you are AFRAID to go to “Skid-Row” and interact with homeless Veterans to find out these kinds of things, and that’s why you would not go when I asked you to accompany me to “Skid-Row about 6-months ago, and several other times as well, you’re excuse being that you had meetings with people… And when I suggested to you that we transport some of the homeless Veterans on “Skid-Row” to your Sunday Rallies Bob, you said you did not want to have the likes of these hard-core homeless Veterans to be seen by the Media and the Public who walked by or drove by in their vehicles on Wilshire and San Vicente. So it appears that you were Embarrassed about “Skid-Row” homeless Veterans!!! A “true” and “real” Veterans’ Advocate interacts with these kinds of homeless Veterans on their own Domain so he can get a handle on the true conditions under which they sleep in the street. But you Bob, putting it mildly, are not that kind of Veterans Advocate. Bob, You are so far removed from the real homeless Veteran dilemma that you think that after you came to Santa Monica to meet with me at the Pier after I had been homeless there for 3-days and then drove me to the WLA VA that that you said in pertinent part that: “you may want to think again about the “BULLY” who picked you up off the streets of Santa Monica and got you shelter, bed, showers and meals at the VA — free –” All you did Bob was drive me to the WLA VAMC, I and the VA did all the rest. And as I told you, had you not driven me I was going to take the Bus. Bob, not only do you give yourself way too much credit for just driving me to the VA, you are also so far removed from the real homeless Veteran dilemma that you think that myself and any other homeless Veteran, especially one that is also a Veterans Advocate, that you would think that We do not know about all the programs that the VA and Non-Profits offer, as well as to where We can get free meals and showers, and at least overnight shelter some of the time, as well as VASH Section 8 and regular Section 8 Housing… Then when I get accepted to the VA Domiciliary and after 3-months there I tell you I have saved $1800 which is what they want you to do in order to have part or all of the money for a Security Deposit for HUD-VASH or other Housing, instead of you being Happy for Me, you become envious of me, saying that you don’t even have $200 or $300 in savings. And if you became envious of me, then you have become envious of all other homeless and/or Low-Income Senior Veterans like myself who get this and other kinds of assistance from the VA or Non-Profits that YOU SAY YOU WANT TO HELP???
Bob Rosebrock Writes Any Veteran who would throw fellow Veterans under the bus to get a pat on the head from a sinister politician working against Veterans, is a treasonous traitor!
Terry Richards Writes If one reads the Retraction story it is clear that I did not Retract My Allegations against Congressman Waxman “to get a pat on the head.” I did it because it was the right thing to do, especially after seeing first hand about how Rosebrock Twists the Truth and Fabricates Lies. Rosebrock has no direct or substantial evidence proving his claim of Fraud against Congressman Waxman.. The evidence revealed in my Article reasonably proves that Congressman Waxman DID NOT Perpetrate any Fraud in connection with the Leasing of Land at the WLA VAMC… Furthermore, I have not asked and do not expect any “pats on the head” as Rosebrock has exclaimed, nor has the Congressman Communicated with me since I wrote that Article… It is also clear and evident in that Article that in fact that the Congressman worked for Veterans and not against Veterans as Rosebrock has exclaimed… It also appears that Bob lives in “His own little World” to exclaim that I am “a treasonous traitor!” because I wrote a “Retraction” story about a Congressman Perpetrating Fraud. These kind of “out of reality” ridicules and exclamations by Rosebrock just further validates my contention that Rosebrock needs Psychiatric Treatment… Noteworthy is the fact that Rosebrock who told” me about 6-months ago or so that he has less than $300 to his name and is dependent on Social Security Retirement, Medicare and probably Food Stamps as well is a self-proclaimed Republican-Conservative, the ones who want to Cut Entitlements including Veterans Entitlements… And Rosebrock calls himself a Veterans Advocate??? Moreover, Rosebrock says he is afraid to go to the VA because they might put poison in his Medications because of Him Demonstrating against the VA and suing them in Court, has to heavily depend on his Medicare for Medical Care, another specific Entitlement Republicans want to cut. Also, Amazingly, Ironically, and Hypocritacally Rosebrock who in the past has trashed in his Articles on www.veteransoday.com/author/rbrock the Residents of the Wealthy and Affluent Brentwood as the cause of not being able to build Veterans Homes on WLA VA Land and not Supporting His Cause. Brentwood is the City adjacent to the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center Land which Rosebrock has Demonstrated over for the last 5-years, and then we come to find that Rosebrock Himself lives in Brentwood. Rosebrock says he shares an apartment or Condo owned by an Elderly Woman and pays only $350 per month rent for his own room and bath. He could have applied for HUD-SENIOR Housing which works the same way HUD-VASH does and had he done that he would be probably less than $300 per month for rent. One wonders why a Veterans and Veterans Advocate like Rosebrock portends to be and who gives advice like this to other Veterans has not followed his own advice??? I know and I admit why I am such a financial “bust-out” (Primarily because of my Major Depressive Disorder and not being able to work regularly since 1998 for which I receive SSDI), but one wonders WHY Rosebrock who speaks and writes so eloquently (At least with Big Words anyway), and is so convincing especially about things that are eventually found out not to be true, and says he is in Good Health(?), WHY is Rosebrock such a financial “bust-out” who virtually has no money saved??? Retraction of allegations of Criminal Fraud by Congressman Henry Waxman… http://vnsla.com/tag/no-fraud-by-cong-henry-waxman/
Bob Rosebrock Writes And you may want to think again about the “BULLY” who picked you up off the streets of Santa Monica and got you shelter, bed, showers and meals at the VA — free — and then you wanted to sue them through my contact, Ms. Wegner. It never stops … you may also want to recall who directed you where to get free rent vouchers (welfare) to live in your apartment and now you falsely and verbally assault me. Even after you had no references in LA, you begged me to use my good name. After you drained me of help and support, you now make scurrilous and false attacks against me in self-pity — Terry Richards, the endless and tireless VICTIM. You are clearly the most ungrateful and disrespectful person I have ever encountered. Even after I introduced you to Chaplain Dov, you turned on him when he couldn’t help get you into the Cal-Vet Home. And the Chaplain recently acknowledged that I was right in my assessments, etc., and that he supports the Old Veterans Guard call for a “State-of-Emergency” and Homeless Veteran Relief Project, while your buddies Obama and Waxman are opposing it and the ACLU lawsuit. I help homeless Veterans like yourself all the time … I don’t falsely talk about it like you. Sorry Bob, but once again, just telling Veterans who more likely than not already know about all the VA and other Non-Profit Shelters and other Housing, or Driving them to the VA or somewhere else is NOT a great feat that you should brag about Bob!!!
Terry Richards Writes I have been a Veterans Advocate for 22-years, since 1990 Bob, and you for only 5-years. And unlike you Bob, among other things, I have actually Volunteered in homeless Shelters and Soup Kitchens, studied Chapter 38 – Veterans Benefits in order to Write numerous VA Service-Connected Disability Compensation Briefs for Veterans for Veterans, and spending 20-40 hours researching and writing those Briefs which involved hundreds of hours of my time. I have also performed research on homelessness and interacted with homeless Veterans in various “Skid-Rows in other Cities, and wrote a series of Articles about it as reference to others helping the Homeless, most of which is on Veterans Today www.veteranstoday.com/author/richards the same Veterans Newspaper for whom you occasionally Author Articles Bob… Why don’t you read-it-over Bob, so you can find out what a real Veterans’ Advocate really does… And Bob, unlike you, which is fortunate for you, I have actually experienced homelessness and lived on the street on several occasions since 1990, even if it was not for very long… All of which Bob, gives me much greater insight than you will ever have about the homeless Veterans dilemma and what to do about it…
Bob Rosebrock Writes Nobody would’ve known about any of this land fraud and abuse of homeless Veterans at the Los Angeles VA had it not been for my determined and unwavering leadership with the OLD VETERANS GUARD of the VETERANS REVOLUTION that started nearly five years ago. Others may refer to us as the “old guard” but we are the Old Veterans Guard … period. And nobody is an employee of the Old Veterans Guard — we are all volunteers. You did not “volunteer” … you only showed up briefly for photo-opportunities and anything else you could benefit from in using our good name. And yes, somebody has to be a “control-freak” to keep self-serving and destructive freaks like yourself from trying to undermine all the good we have done and continue to do. Members of the Old Veterans Guard had you figured out immediately as you were all smiles to have your photo taken with us and our signs, and then feigned pain with sad-face and had to leave instead of standing Guard like those of us in our 70s and 80s.
Terry Richards Writes No Bob, I have documented Severe Spinal Stenosis, and have to where Lidocaine Patches most of the time just to be able to walk and stand for a while. I also have documented weakness and continued pain from my 2-year episode with Polymyositis Neuromuscular Disease for which I still continue to get monitored by MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association). This comment by you Bob proves not only what a “Control Freak” you really are but also how you really don’t care about Veterans who are Disabled regardless of whether or not the disability is service-connected or not, because if you are lucky enough to be in good health at age 70 then surely a younger Veteran can’t possibly be in pain… We all come from “Dysfunctional Families” Bob, “Dysfunctional is Normal is America” (John Bradshaw “on the Family”). But all of the above reveals the extreme “Dysfunctional Family” you came from in which one or both of your Parents probably did not allow you to be in pain, and you watched them criticize and ridicule others who were in pain or did not meet their standards. And because you refuse to get Psychiatric Treatment, you Take-Out your “Unfinished Business” from Childhood on all the people with whom you work and associate… Man oh Man Bob, did your Parents do a number on you!!!… Do yourself and everyone a favor Bob and get Psychiatric Treatment, would you please???
Bob Rosebrock Writes Moreover, the ACLU was clueless about the VA land-scam, as were virtually all others, yourself included, who have jumped on this bandwagon and are thumping their chests in hallow braggadocio.
Terry Richards Writes Not True Bob!!! The Sale and Leasing of this Land wanted by Congress has been in the Local LA and National News since 1986. It was during The Republican Administration of President Ronald Reagan who by the way was the first President who wanted to sell all of the WLA VA Land… And Congressman Waxman and other Members of Congress kept all of this VA Land from being completely Sold or Leased. It’s documented and all the documents are attached to the Congressman Waxman Retraction Story I wrote… You are a “raving lunatic” out-of-control lunatic” Bob, please get Psychiatric Treatment help from the VA or by using your Medicare Part B… Bob, The Federal Court For The Southern District of California has RULED on the VA Land Case and NOT IN FAVOR OF REQUIRING THE VA TO BUILD VETERANS HOMES. Your time can best be spent on helping the ACLU with the Appeal to this Case if there is any or spending time down in “Skid-Row” Volunteering at the Missions and other Non-Profits and/or INTERACTING with the homeless Veterans who live on the streets, especially between 5th and 6th Streets and S. San Julian and S. San Pedro Streets. You have NO TOLERANCE for others Bob including homeless Veterans and other Veterans Advocates or anyone else, which in the past has probably led to your inability to keep a Job for very long, and, thus, at least one of the reasons you are a financial “bust-out” and probably the reason John Keaveney (per you) called you a “loser” because he makes $174,000 a year as the Retired-Founder of New Directions all of which can be found on their IRS 990 filed with the California Attorney General’s Office online Website for CHARITY TRUST REGISTRATIONS… I do not condone Violence Bob, but in every State that I know of “Provoking Speeches and Gestures is an Affirmative Defense to Assault and based on all of the above it would not surprise me if you said or gestured something that “Provoked” Keaveney to Assault you???
Bob Rosebrock Writes The ACLU made off handsomely with legal fees in their representation of me, while Donna Beiter is still the executive director in violation of her oath of office, etc. I received zilch and never sought anything except proving that my First Amendment Right to Free Speech was seriously violated. I have paid one hell of a price to move this campaign up-field to the goal line over many years while those who have not invested a thing now want to safely carry the ball over the goal line for bogus glory. I’m just way too busy working to assist disabled homeless Veterans who need help than waste it on phony ingrates like yourself. I will address each of your fallacious and inflammatory statements in due time — you are obviously filled with hate, animosity, anger, pity and every other negative thought you can muster up in self-righteousness. Lastly, Ms. Wegner is more than welcome to represent you if she thinks you deserve it. And she does so at her own risk as she will eventually get burned like everyone else has who encounters you. She did not represent me in my TRO against your buddy John Keaveney as you falsely insinuated. Your support of his intervening our Sunday Rally and threatening me with violent harm will eventually be used against you as an accomplice. Ms. Wegner’s office address was simply used for notification, not as my attorney. The fact that you spend your time searching the court files and trying to discredit me instead of helping homeless Veterans as you falsely preach, speaks volumes about who your are not, far more than who you think you are. Sincerely, Robert L. Rosebrock Director, Old Veterans Guard Director, Veterans Revolution
