Bergdahl could get $350G
tax-free, if cleared by Army

Fox News, by Dominic Di-Natale

Posted By:BaseballFan, 7/14/2014 3:17:40 PM

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could have a tax-free $350,000 dropped into his bank account if the current investigation into his disappearance from his base in Afghanistan was not desertion, and if he is deemed to have been a prisoner of war for the five years he was held by Islamic militants, Fox News has learned. The 28-year-old soldier, for whom the U.S. traded five senior Taliban operatives held at Guantanamo Bay, was set to return to active duty Monday after spending six weeks in medical rehab at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio. “Essentially he’ll be working a desk job,”

possibility is not probability

just remember three things
- was he absent
- did he know where he was supposed to be
- was he relieved from duty by competent authority

A general court martial can answer those questions quickly and easily.

then they can impose

- forfeiture of all pay and allowances
- reduction in grade to pvt E-1
- confinement at hard labor for life
- a dishonorable discharge

With the current administration, he is never going to be truly investigated.

He hates the military, hates our country, and intentionally joined and aided the enemy. Since the enemy are muslims, he is Øvomit´s hero. So no real punishment is going to happen to him.

Let´s just be real. Øvomit is a muslim and hates America. I´m sure he doesn´t think this traitor did anything wrong...

I keep thinking Romans 1:28 ".. and gave them over to reprobate minds.." to explain so many of the decisions being made in the highest levels of our government. The silence of the rest of them? SAME thing. This traitor has been getting 5-star medical treatment. Celebrity-type security and media privacy for he and his family both nationally and locally and now he gets all this renumeration plus his job back? Meanwhile, a good and patriotic Marine sits in a filthy Mexican jail ignored by his government and THOUSANDS more long-serving military are receiving cold-hearted pink slips while they are serving in theatre. Yes, I think this explains part of where we are at now..

The fact that the Army put him into an office and he´s free to run around tells me that the fix is already in. That general has already gotten his marching orders from the WH. After all, Barry can´t let a court marshal happen after his big splash. It would show how incompetent he is.

The foreign ministers of Germany and Britain said on Thursday they would not be taking part in air strikes in Syria against the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).

The ISIS Speech: Obama

Here is President Barack Obama´s challenge: how to unleash the dogs of war without having them run wild. This dilemma applies to both the political and policy considerations Obama faces, as he expands US military action in Iraq (and possibly Syria) to counter ISIS, the militant and murderous outfit that now calls itself the Islamic State and controls territory in northern Iraq and eastern Syria. (Snip) But whatever he calls it, the president is attempting a difficult feat: waging a nuanced war.

A senior communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder seemingly called House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa´s staff by accident and asked for their help spinning new revelations about the IRS scandal, Issa said in a September 8 letter to Holder. The aide, Brian Fallon, is a former senior aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a well-known personality on Capitol Hill. The letter describes Fallon as “audibly shaken” when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine.

The NFL never asked Revel Casino for the elevator security tape that showed Ray Rice knocking out his future wife, TMZ reported Tuesday, citing sources.

According to NBC’s Peter King and ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, NFL officials called teams around the league to gauge interest in signing Michael Sam to their practice squad. Yesterday, the Dallas Cowboys signed Sam, who is trying to become the first openly gay player in NFL history. King reported this during the pre-game show on NBC prior to the Seahawks/Packers season opener Thursday night. “The Rams waived Michael Sam, the first openly gay player trying to make an NFL roster, he was unemployed for two days,” King said. “During that time a league official contacted multiple teams asking if they

A jury has acquitted a Texas father who was accused of fatally shooting the drunken driver who killed his two sons. David Barajas, 32, was pushing his broken down car along a road with his 11- and 12-year-old sons back in 2012 when Jose Banda, a drunken driver, fatally struck the two boys. Prosecutors say Barajas then shot Banda, but authorities never found the weapon or physical evidence. Barajas repeatedly cried when he heard the verdict today.

One man´s "Ice Bucket Challenge" video has landed him in hot water. Jesean Morris, 20, who was wanted in Nebraska for violating the terms of his parole, was arrested Friday after he posted to Facebook a video of himself dumping a bucket of ice water on his head.

Colorado aims to sell more legal pot
KUSA-TV [Denver, CO] *, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 8/12/2014 10:55:40 PM     Post Reply
Denver - Seven months after Colorado legalized recreational pot, the state has an unexpected problem. It needs to grow more. Because even though sales have surged, only about 60% of the marijuana sold is the legal variety. The rest is either illegal or grown unregulated in the so-called gray market, where unlicensed citizens can grow for their own use. (Snip) "What that does is, (it) raises the prices and if the price is too high, then we can´t compete with the black market and that was our ultimate goal – we wanted to eliminate the black market," Kammerzell said. But new data comparing demand for marijuana in Colorado with the legal supply suggest

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat.

President Obama just announced that he is bringing a counter-terrorism strategy to an insurgency fight. He was at pains to repeat the phrase “counter-terror” four times in a short speech. Noting that ISIL is not a state (partly because the international community thankfully does not recognize it), he declared, “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” Neither of those sentences, unfortunately, is true. ISIL is an insurgent group that controls enormous territory in Iraq and Syria that it governs. It maneuvers conventional light

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and
