Why Hasn’t Bowe Bergdahl Seen or
Spoken to His Parents Since Release?

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/14/2014 5:02:36 PM

Earlier today came news that Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by the Taliban after five years in captivity, will be returning to active duty with the U.S. Army this week. Now, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal, we learn that Bergdahl has refused to see or speak to his parents since his release six weeks ago. An army official reportedly told the Journal that Bergdahl has refused to see his parents in person or even speak to them on the phone, suggesting “a deeper estrangement between the soldier and his parents than the military understood when he was

Comments:
That certainly is a good question! Maybe they didn´t want that weird father speaking out to the press. The regime has no desire for anything to leak out regarding the traitor Bergdahl.

His father told him to follow his conscious resulting in 5 years of arguable captivity.

Not sure I´d want to talk to him either.

His father is a wacko, but he and his wife did devote years of their lives to freeing their son. How sharper than a serpent´s tooth, etc...

#2, another possibility is that he´s ticked at his parents for getting Obama to trade the 5 top terrorists for him... he probably wanted to stay where he was, not to return to the US and the Army.

Whether he sees or talks to his parents seems to be his decision and not the Army´s. He wasn´t living with them when he joined the Army and from the little we know it seems there might have been problems then. Not our business anyway. Things are not always how they appear to be.

I imagine it´s the Military officials who have kept parents and loved ones at bay because of ll the controversy regarding his release -- I´ll assume once he´s reintegrated back into society/work that´s when he and family can have contact.

The Sisters Tsarnaev have been nothing but trouble. Double, bubbling trouble. While their Boston Marathon bomber brother Dzhokhar awaits trial this month for the bloody 2012 attacks that killed three and injured hundreds, his elder Chechen immigrant siblings Ailina and Bella remain on the loose in the U.S. after their own frequent run-ins with the law. Last week, Ailina was arrested in Harlem after allegedly threatening "to blow up her live-in lover´s baby mama," as the New York Post reported. Police charged Ailina, 23, with aggravated harassment and released her. Will the legal system learn? Ailina´s time in America sends one clear

Seventeen-year-old Cristian stepped through the swinging wooden door separating the crowded waiting area from the judge’s bench, straightening his slightly-too-big dress shirt as he slid behind the defendant´s desk. As his lawyer took the seat beside him, Cristian slipped on the court-provided headphones so he could hear the Spanish-speaking translator as his lawyer began to speak. After a few pleasantries, Cristian’s lawyer told Immigration Judge John M. Bryant that his client conceded to the charge of being an undocumented alien in the United States and was subject to potential removal. Cristian wanted to plead for asylum for “protection from torture,” and

Former CIA operative Bob Baer told CNN´s Jake Tapper last night that ISIS is in the United States and capable of carrying out an attack. "What are your sources telling you about ISIS and any cells in the United States?" Tapper asked. "The people who collect tactical intelligence on the ground, day-to-day, and this isn´t Washington, but people collecting this stuff say they´re here, ISIS is here, they´re capable of striking. They don´t know what their plans and intentions are. But it´s a definite concern," Baer said. "The people who do this for a living are very alarmed." Baer also

Appreciation comes in many different forms, some more dignified than others. For us, the YouTube video released Tuesday by the American Civil Liberties Union falls into the "less-than-dignified" category. Then again, maybe we´re being unfair. Maybe you disagree with our characterization and maybe you think the video, titled “A Day Without The Constitution,” is some lighthearted fun. But I think we can all agree that the video is terribly bizarre, yes? From the video´s description: Have you ever thought about what a day could look like if the Constitution had not been ratified 225 years ago? Watch this video and take a moment to reflect

Rudy Giuliani wants

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals. So why play 18 holes? That’s what pros do to win tournaments.” Giuliani

One of Washington´s top litigators with a record of cowing Big Tobacco and Washington´s Cosmos Club has filed a petition with the FCC challenging the license of a radio station owned by the Washington Redskins, a name he dubbed “profanity,” and a “hate crime.” John Banzhaf, a public interest law professor at George Washington University, said that the license of station WWXX-FM (ESPN 980) should not be renewed because it repeatedly uses the "ethnic slur" "Redskins," the type of "profanity" the agency has blocked in the past.

As Bad As Feared

Back in November 2012, Arthur Herman, author of Freedom’s Forge: How American Business Produced Victory in World War II, warned in the pages of COMMENTARY about what was at stake because of the Obama administration’s decision to turn control over the governance and regulation of the Internet to the United Nations. He explained: This all began in 2005, when the United Nations sponsored a World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis. That choice of venue was itself rich with irony, since Tunisia’s then dictator, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, was the Arab world’s leading censor of the Internet, and

Barack Obama’s "malaise moment" occurred in the afternoon of Aug. 28, when, dressed for failure in tan, he announced he did not have a strategy for combating the threat posed to us by ISIS and crossed into Carterland, the Desert of Fail feared by all politicians, in which the once fresh new face becomes for all time an object of ridicule, and each attempt made at controlling the damage only makes matters much worse. Jimmy Carter, wrote Examiner columnist Michael Barone in his book Our Country, "failed to understand that voters yearning for control to be exerted over events would

The Islamic State Is Nothing New
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 9/3/2014 10:27:49 AM     Post Reply
The beheading of yet another Western journalist, Steven Sotloff, has ignited another round of commentary suggesting that the Islamic State is the worst terrorist network ever. There is value in this: The current jihadist threat to the United States and the West is more dire than the threat that existed just prior to the 9/11 attacks, so anything that increases pressure for a sea change in our Islamic-supremacist-enabling government’s policies helps. Nevertheless, the perception that the Islamic State is something new and different and aberrational compared with the Islamic-supremacist threat we’ve been living with for three decades is wrong, perhaps

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that President Barack Obama should “continue to follow the law” in order to help “create an environment where you could do immigration reform in a responsible way next year” on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.” Boehner reported that immigration reform “wasn’t likely” this year, stating “I’ve outlined to the president in July that the House, the Congress, ought to be dealing with immigration reform. It wasn’t likely to happen this year because of the flood on the border, and the president’s own pounding his chest about using his phone and his pen.” He added, “But

How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving. This is why people aspiring to be politicians go to law school. Not only does it teach them to lie real good, it also allows the rest of us to use the same joke for lawyers and politicians. This came to mind the other day when President Obama, the law professor, cleared up the question the entire world has been wondering for quite some time and finally defined the Obama doctrine for foreign policy. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse.

Fox & Friends cohost Elisabeth Hasselbeck claimed Wednesday morning that then-candidate Barack Obama had promised his better “understanding” of Muslims would prevent atrocities like the beheading of American freelance journalist Steven Sotloff by groups like ISIS — something that ain’t working so well, per Hasselbeck. “You look back to 2007, the president alluded to the fact he thought it would change the world once he was inaugurated, that he would be able to understand Muslims and therefore crimes like this would not occur and the world would be safer because he had understanding,” Hasselbeck said. “Well years later, it doesn’t seem

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

President Obama spent Labor Day in Wisconsin, opening the campaign season in a battleground state with a tight race for governor — but the Democrat at the top of the ticket there was nowhere to be seen. Mary Burke, who is battling to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker, decided to steer clear of Obama’s visit to LaborFest, an annual salute to organized labor held in Milwaukee. She became the latest in a parade of Democrats in tight races who have tried to create space between themselves and a President with weak poll numbers.

Sometime on Saturday night, vandals attacked three Christian houses of worship in Columbus, Indiana, spray-painting the word "infidels" and citations of verses from the Koran on the outer walls. St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Lakeview Church of Christ, and East Columbus Christian Church all had the word "infidels" spray-painted on them, in places of prominence to be seen by worshipers. Cited in the Indianapolis Star, Columbus police spokesperson Matt Harris said that church employees discovered the vandalism when they arrived to prepare for Sunday services. At St. Bartholomew, the words "Qur´an 3:151" were also left. That verse reads:
