´Bowe Bergdahl deserted and these Americans

Daily Mail [UK], by Michael Zennie

Not everyone is welcoming Bowe Bergdahl home with open arms. Some of the men who served with the Taliban POW believe that he deserted his post. And they say six American soldiers died because of his actions. Bergdahl´s release, brokered with the Taliban in exchange for five Guantanamo detainees, has ignited fury in some corners of the U.S. military community and re-opened old wounds. ´Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him,´ former Sergeant Matt Vierkant told CNN. A former superior of the 28-year-old soldier, Greg Leatherman, said he hopes

This just goes from bad to worse. Obama is evil personified. He truly is a megalomaniac. I can´t even begin to imagine how demoralized our military must be having Obama as their CIC.

Painful. Court martial and send him to Leavenworth.

This latest act is nothing but the WH screaming SQUIRREL to deflect the VA scandal.

My disbelief is that obama and his advisor(s) (vj) thought they could get by with this. This may be the one that gets him.

Leavenworth, #1? The penalty for desertion in time of war is death.

The thing about this Bergdahl is that he abandoned his infantry unit on the battlefield and then apparently violated the Code of Conduct by cooperating with the terrorists.

Clearly Bergdahl caused his situation from the get-go. Remember the Army is all volunteer these days and if Bergdahl did not have confidence with the military mission in Afghanistan he should not have been there in the first place. The people who know best about what happened before and during the time Bergdahl abandoned his unit are the soldiers who served in the platoon to which Bergdahl was assigned. Chances are a number of American soldiers were killed and wounded both directly and indirectly while looking for Bergdahl in the wilds of Afghanistan.

Clearly the French Foreign Legion who rejected Bergdahl´s enlistment application saw through him as not being fit for infantry service, only after that did Bergdahl enlist in the US Army infantry that Bergdahl apparently considered as being essentially a Peace Corps with guns.

The people happy about this ending are Bergdahl´s family, a small backwater town in Idaho, the anti-war movement, and of course Obama who got a photo opportunity. The downside is that five of the hardest of the hard corps terrorists get to return to the battlefield.

This is just horrible. So we have a deserter, we lose soldiers looking for him. Daddy shows up in the WH with a full beard, and quoting the Koran. We send the Taliban 5 top commanders to Qatar with US oversight (and no Americans in sight). OP is right Zero is evil personified.

I previously thought that Zero is just an unfocused, foolish dupe, and that Hillary is evil personified. They both are evil.

Murrieta Town Hall Vents Anger

Breitbart California, by Joel B. Pollak    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/3/2014 9:11:40 AM     Post Reply
A town hall in Murrieta, CA on Wednesday evening erupted into anger at the federal government over its failure to enforce immigration laws, as counter-demonstrators outside showed support for the illegal aliens--many of them women and children--being transported to the community from Border Patrol facilities in Texas. Local KCAL9 News reported that 750 residents gathered inside the local high school, and hundreds were turned away. The town had been the scene of a dramatic confrontation earlier in the week between over 100 demonstrators and buses carrying 140 illegal aliens. The protestors, waving signs and American flags, blocked a road and turned

A 19-year-old Denver woman has been arrested on terrorism charges for allegedly plotting to travel to Syria and join an Islamist extremist she had met online and was planning to marry. Shannon Maureen Conley was arrested in April while trying to board a flight to Turkey with the alleged goal of meeting up with members of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria group, also known as ISIS. According to a criminal complaint filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, Conley conspired to commit an offense against the United States. When questioned by officials, the teenager freely admitted that

If you’re choosing one person who best represents America’s journalistic establishment, it’d be hard to top Steve Coll, a former Washington Post reporter and managing editor who’s now dean of Columbia University’s journalism school; a member of the Pulitzer Prize board; and a staff writer for the New Yorker. On Wednesday, Coll posted a piece on the New Yorker’s website in which he argued that if the Supreme Court were to consistently apply the religious-freedom principle it endorsed in the Hobby Lobby case, it would have to allow an essentially Taliban-owned U.S. corporation to deny insurance coverage for polio vaccines

Laura Ingraham told Bill O’Reilly her immigration plan tonight, which includes deportation of every illegal immigrant in the country by the thousands, not only sounds “draconian,” but would have significant negative consequences for the Republican party in the near political future. He said, “I do believe that if you do have mass deportations and, you know, the rental agreement stuff, that the Republican party would become obsolete, that you would ensure Hillary Clinton‘s election in 2016 because the demographics don’t add up.” Ingraham told O’Reilly he’s “adopting the argument of the left,” but O’Reilly insisted that “mass deportations would be draconian”

In his new book, Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department (co-written with John Fund), Hans von Spakovsky reveals how our attorney general has turned America’s Department of Justice into “a politicized hotbed of left-wing legal activism.” The author revealed to Human Events the magnitude of Holder’s offenses highlighted in his book, offenses which should be an alarming wake-up call to every American: What do you reveal in your book that people might not know about Eric Holder?

A federal appellate court here ruled that a Mexican teenager fatally shot by a Border Patrol agent was protected by the U.S. Constitution despite the fact that he was on Mexican territory at the time of the incident. The ruling by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in El Paso held that the family of 15-year-old Sergio Adrian Hernandez Güereca may proceed with their $25 million civil suit over his death in 2010. U.S. District Judge David Briones earlier had ruled that the boy´s family lacked the right to sue the government because Sergio was on Mexican territory when he was

The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he had not spoken to President Obama about protests in California that blocked buses full of immigrant detainees from reaching a processing station. But Earnest said there was no expectation of changing strategies to deal with the flood of minors "at this point.” "At this point, what we´re focused on is making sure that we can ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need," Earnest said.

Vice President Biden is in touch with top Iraqi officials, trying to find a political solution to the sectarian crisis threatening to tear the nation apart, the White House said Wednesday. The White House said Biden called Osama al-Nujaifi, who served as speaker of the previous session of Iraq’s Council of Representatives, to express "the United States’ strong support for Iraq in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and concern for those Iraqis affected." "The two agreed on the importance of Iraqis moving expeditiously to form a new government capable of uniting the country," the administration

WASHINGTON – A federal watchdog group said Wednesday that the National Security Agency’s data collection and surveillance program has been “an effective tool” for the country. Seven months earlier, the same bipartisan group found fundamental flaws with another program, arguing in a January report that the NSA’s collection of domestic calling records “lacked a viable legal foundation” and recommended that it be shut down. But the latest report, voted on by the five-member board, found that the NSA´s collection of Internet data within the United States passes constitutional muster and employs "reasonable" safeguards designed to protect the rights of Americans.

Afghanistan: Taliban forces are moving hard against the democratic government of Afghanistan, where Obama said we were fighting the smart war, requiring that we lose the dumb war in Iraq. We´ve now lost both. Three years ago, President Obama pretty much announced that the U.S. had won in Afghanistan. He said, "we set clear objectives: to refocus on al-Qaida, to reverse the Taliban´s momentum, and train Afghan security forces to defend their own country. I also made it clear that our commitment would not be open-ended, and that we would begin to draw down our forces this July." Looking forward, Obama promised, "by

Education: As we predicted, the Obama regime´s anti-suspension policy is backfiring. Los Angeles teachers complain unsuspended violent kids are intimidating them and effectively ruling their classrooms. In 2011, the Education Department accused the Los Angeles Unified School District of discriminating against black boys, who were suspended for bad behavior at a disproportionate rate. The agency ordered it to reduce suspensions in the hopes that unruly minority students would stay in school and graduate. "The district shall develop and implement a comprehensive plan to eliminate the disproportionality in the discipline imposed on African-American students," the five-page decree says.

In a recent townhall meeting, Bloomberg Businessweek editor-in-chief talked about the company´s new acquisition of political reporters and "Game Change" authors John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, and then bragged that, "One of our biggest advantages in politics is we are not ideological, we are not a sewer." Anyone even somewhat familiar with the work of Halperin and Heilemann knows how laughably dishonest that statement is. Heilemann is by far the worst of the two. While Halperin has his better moments, Heilemann has defended Secretary of State John Kerry´s reprehensible remark about the possibility of Israel becoming an apartheid state, told Rand Paul

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say. In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

A crowd of 300 angry protestors forced three buses carrying 140 undocumented migrant children and their parents to turn around in Murrieta, California, on Tuesday after they blocked the road. The dramatic confrontation between the flag waving protestors and the Homeland Security buses came one day after Mayor Alan Long urged residents to resist the federal government´s plan to transfer the Central American migrants to California to ease overcrowding of facilities along the Texas-Mexico border. Holding up banners that said ´Return to Sender´ and suggesting the children should be sent to the White House instead, the irate protestors succeeded when the buses

This past week, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, and Dinesh D’Souza gave a platform to an entity that hates America and our way of life. Seems the prospect of smokin’ out a snake like Bill Ayers was too good to pass up. Getting an exclusive one-on-one with a crazy, violent communist with a small c was quite a coup for Kelly and D’Souza...or was it? Since lying and deceit generally benefit the liar, we have to ask, ”What was in it for Bill Ayers?” A mea culpa for past crimes? Hardly. After listening to Ayers, we must conclude: once a psychopath, always a psychopath.

In a statement posted Wednesday on the retailer´s corporate blog, interim CEO John Mulligan said that Target wants a "safe and inviting" atmosphere for its shoppers and employees. "Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create," he said.

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

WASHINGTON – Republicans see the November midterm elections as an opportunity to take the nation on a different path and call for a new conservative message focusing on the problems of regular Americans. During the latest convention of conservative activist Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C., Republicans confidently proclaimed that the GOP has an opportunity to turn back the past six years of President Obama’s administration in the midterm elections. “There’s only one thing to be done in 2014…and that is to take back America by taking back the Senate,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama, has a unique item of herself in her office: a photo of herself with three figurines bowing down in worship in front of it. The photo drew attention after Jarrett´s "Meet the Press" interview Sunday — and Jarrett posted a tweet Tuesday afternoon assuring her supporters the display was simply a novelty item. "Don´t worry friends, it was a gag gift," Jarrett wrote, pivoting to some White House messaging about the economy. "Us strong women don´t need worship," she continued, "just an economy for the 21st century. #WomenSucceed." Business Insider directly

St. Claire Shores, MI -The feminists hadn’t shown up yet, but they could, at any moment, with their protest signs and screaming. The threat of them was an infuriating and exhilarating specter throughout the weekend, a symbol of the oppression facing the men’s rights activists who had gathered to meet for their inaugural conference. Early Friday before the opening session, a wispy trail of men — mostly white, college-through-retirement-age — waited for the doors to open outside of this Veterans of Foreign Wars outpost in suburban Detroit. One man talked about his ex-wife. A lot of guys talked about their ex-wives.
