  • Bergdahl, Manning, Vindman: Heroes of the Progressive Socialist Left

    The progressive socialist left, along with their media accomplices, have gone into another apoplectic unhinged rage. I know, what else is new? This time it is all about the dismissal of one US Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. LTC Vindman has now risen to the dubious acclaim of being referred to as a hero. In the fall of 2018, here in Texas, there had to be an emergency session of the Texas State Board of Education because some leftists wanted to remove the term “heroic” from Texas state history curriculum in reference to the defenders of the Alamo. The left...

    Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl contends President Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. John McCain made comments that interfered with his right to a fair trial at Fort Bragg. A military court has agreed to hear the appeal of Bowe Bergdahl, the Army soldier who left his post during a deployment in Afghanistan in 2009 to walk to another American base but got captured by the Taliban and held prisoner for five years. At a court-martial at Fort Bragg in 2017, Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion to shirk hazardous duty and to misbehavior before the enemy. He was sentenced to a $10,000...

    Retired Army Master Sgt. Mark Allen has died 10 years after he was shot in the head while searching for deserter Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan. Allen died on Saturday at the age of 46, according to funeral information posted online. He had been unable to walk or speak since he was a sniper shot him in the head in July 2009 while he was looking for Bergdahl, who had walked off his base in Afghanistan and was held by the Taliban for five years, the Walton Tribune reported. At Bergdahl's trial, Allen's wife Shannon testified that it would take...

    An Army appeals court ruled Tuesday that tweets from President Trump attacking U.S. Army soldier Bowe Berghdahl did not unlawfully influence his trial for desertion, according to CNN. Bergdahl’s attorneys had argued that tweets and public statements from Trump describing their client as “a no-good traitor who should have been executed” unduly influenced the case, and that Bergdahl was entitled to have a court reconsider the case or grant clemency as a result. A three-judge Army Court of Criminal Appeals panel rejected the argument 2-1, according to the network. "Although there was some evidence of unlawful command influence adduced at...
  • This Journalist Died After Exposing Bowe Bergdahl’s Anti-Americanism Was it an inside job? (car cras

    "...the Obama administration actively sought to keep the lid on Robert Bergdahl and Michael Hastings’ reporting of Bowe Bergdahl, as secret FBI documents now reveal. A 22-page secret FBI report dated June 11, 2012, obtained by investigative reporter Jason Leopold, shows that both Hastings and former Afghanistan war veteran and co-writer Matt Farwell were under an intense FBI investigation in early 2012. The document is highly redacted; but it appears Hastings and Farwell were under direct FBI surveillance, including when they met with Bowe Bergdahl’s parents in 2012."

    When Donald Trump announced that his first trip abroad as president would take him to Saudi Arabia and to Israel, it was a signal that the new administration had returned America’s traditional alliances in the Middle East to their privileged status. For the prior eight years, the Obama White House had, in contrast, prioritized relations with these countries’ regional adversary in Iran and embraced the Islamic Republic’s regional allies, Turkey and Qatar, as key interlocutors and partners. The Obama administration also supported Islamist movements in the Middle East, principally the Muslim Brotherhood, that threated to topple regimes and instigate more...

    Jamal Khashoggi’s op-eds published in the very influential Washington Post certainly qualify as attempts to change U.S. policy against Saudi Arabia and in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Washington Post has caused itself a major scandal since it has come to light they and their martyred “reformer” Jamal Khashoggi were publishing anti-Saudi propaganda for Qatar. They tried to bury this in a pre-Christmas Saturday news dump, but that can’t stop the damage this will do to their reputation.“Text messages between Khashoggi and an executive at Qatar Foundation International show that the executive, Maggie Mitchell Salem, at times shaped the...

    It’s episode 25, Katie is back, and the 2018 midterms are here. We’re less than a week away from Election Day. CNN is having conniption fits. And the fallout from the Obama presidency is still being felt. We all know CNN is straight trash, so here’s another story that triggered them to no end last night. The new ad from the Trump campaign shows illegal alien and totally insane cop-killer Luis Bracamontes showing zero remorse for the two officers he killed, while also saying he wished he had killed more. Bracamontes was deported twice by the way. It’s juxtaposed with...

    KABUL, Afghanistan — Five members of the Afghan Taliban who were freed from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for captured American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl have joined the insurgent group’s political office in Qatar, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Tuesday. They will now be among Taliban representatives negotiating for peace in Afghanistan, a sign some negotiators in Kabul say indicates the Taliban’s desire for a peace pact. Others fear the five, all of whom were close to the insurgent group's founder and hard-line leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, bring with them the same ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam...

    Exclusive: Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady says ex-president waged all-out assault on armed forces. There is a story about a three-legged pig that illustrates some of what former President Obama did to our military. A farmer was asked why his pig had only three legs. He replied: “You see that pig. One night our house caught on fire while we were asleep. Without regard for his own life, the pig raced into the house squealing away. He went from bedroom to bedroom waking us up. He dragged our baby out the door and saved all our lives.” What has that got...

    Watching the military lately is like watching an Evil Knievel 20 bus jump gone wrong; a Wide World of Sports skier careen into a throng of spectators; an out of control freight train laden with deadly chemicals, ready to derail that no one seems to have the ability to stop. The merde is indeed hitting the ventilateur in the bowels of the Pentagon and across the world at US military bases and on US ships of war. It’s safe to say that in the US military, the thrill of victory is long gone and the agony of defeat is here...

    “I am a soldier. I fight where I am told, and I win where I fight.”  -- Gen. George S. Patton.Americans are outraged over the Bowe Bergdahl sentencing November 3 that should have led to serious prison time, or worse. But, face it, we now live in a country where deserters who cause fellow soldiers to be maimed or killed are treated as heroes if weak leftists are in charge.He should be in prison. The only difference between Bergdahl and the guy who used a Home Depot truck to mow down and kill people in New York recently is that...

    Reminder: President Obama broke the law when he released five Islamic terrorists in exchange for U.S. Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl In June 2009, U.S. Army private first class Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post.Six U.S soldiers died while searching for Bergdahl.Instead of being court-martialed for his desertion, Bergdahl was promoted to the rank of specialist in June 2010, and later promoted to the rank of sergeant in June 2011. Since President Obama was Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military at the time, he had final approval or denial of these promotions. Obama’s allowing these promotions to happen is an expression of his de...

    A travesty of justice occurred on Friday. A deserter with blood on his heels will walk free, leaving dead and maimed Americans in his wake, because of a bully’s pulpit and a weak man’s bench and gavel. The miscarriage results from a president who tweets too much and a judge who discerns too little. Candidate Trump tweeted some harsh things about the consequences he believed deserter Bowe Bergdahl should face. Among other things, Trump called Bergdahl a “dirty rotten traitor” and a “no good traitor who should have been executed.” Commentators expressed concern at the time about inappropriate command influence...

    Former Taliban captive Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has symptoms similar to schizophrenia and is suffering from severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), according to a forensic psychiatrist who testified in the soldier's trial on Wednesday. Bergdahl's lawyers called upon forensic psychiatrist and professor Dr. Charles Morgan, who specializes in working with prisoners of war and examined Bergdahl in 2016, in the trial's third day of witness testimony. Bergdahl, 31, faces up to life in prison after he pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy for abandoning his Army post in Afghanistan in June 2009. The closing arguments in the...

    A military judge ruled that the charge of endangering service members' lives can be used against Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at his upcoming trial. According to the Associated Press, Col. Jeffery Nance reasoned that since some service members had been wounded in firefights on missions looking for Bergdahl, they would've been fine if he hadn't left his post in the first place. The official charge of misbehavior before the enemy carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.

    Potential jurors for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s court-martial in October may be forced to tell lawyers if they voted for President Trump. Comments made by Mr. Trump during his 2016 Republican campaign for the White House have influenced one of the most high-profile, court-martial cases in U.S. Army history. Lawyers for Sgt. Bergdahl, the soldier who left his post in Afghanistan in June 2009, have a private 41-question survey for a Fort Bragg judge to consider. One of 17 questions objected to by prosecutors involves support for Mr. Trump’s campaign. “The principal issue has to do with ensuring we are...
