White House knew Bergdahl was traitor, made swap anyway

Hat/Tip to NewsmaxTV. Ex-Bergdahl Roommate, retired Army Spc. Cody Full told “The Steve Malzberg Show” that the White House knew he deserted, knew he wasn’t a hero, and knew he Was a traitor before swap. Bowe Bergdahl’s former roommate, retired Army Spc. Cody Full says the government knew that Bergdahl had deserted his post and was a traitor to his country before they made the swap of five high-level Taliban detainees from Guantanamo Bay to get him back. “They have all the documentation on it. The administration knew he deserted, they knew he wasn’t a hero,” retired Army Spc. Cody Full […]

There Was A Crooked Man…

“I make absolutely no apologies…” – Barack Obama, Democrat “There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile. He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse, And they all lived together in a little crooked house.” – English Nursery Rhyme “Impeachment is a political solution to a criminal problem…” – Ben Shapiro According to a recent study, rats are capable of feeling regret about their own actions. This sets them apart from Democrats, who never seem to feel sorry about much of anything.  John Kerry, the Norman […]

Daughter of first American killed in Afghanistan learns one of the freed “Taliban Five” was behind her father’s death

Hat/Tip to Foxnews. I think that President Obama should have to be locked in a room, broadcast on C-SPAN (REALLY, this time), and have to explain to this young lady why her father’s murderer was released to go and murder more Americans. That little girl hugging her Daddy in the picture above has had to grow up without him and our President just blithely lets his killer go free, and then heads to the friggin’ golf course. Alison Spann was just 9 when she learned her father, a U.S. Marine turned CIA operative, had become the first American killed in […]

Old Osama Had A Farm …

The debate rages on: Is Barack Obama an epically incompetent amateur?  Or is he a cunning and treacherous domestic enemy well on his way to destroying the United States that most of us have known and loved all our lives. My money is on the latter hypothesis, of course, since the law of averages dictates that no honest American could drive us so unerringly down the road to ruin unless he knew where he was going from the git-go — or in this case, from the Gitmo, that holding pen for the Islamist killers he’s so eagerly setting loose — […]

Taliban: We Found Bergdahl Alone, Cursing Americans

Hat/Tip to Newser. Evidently Bowe Bergdahl got his feelings hurt when the Taliban didn’t altogether trust him and his intentions… The Taliban were just as confused by Bowe Bergdahl as the Afghan villagers who first encountered him after he allegedly wandered off his base, two former commanders say. Fighters rushed to capture Bergdahl after villagers informed them of his presence, and he was found walking alone, acting strangely, and cursing his fellow Americans, one commander tells NBC. He said “he wasn’t happy with his countrymen, but he didn’t intend to convert to Islam” or become a jihadi, the commander says. […]

On the Bergdahl Swap: Obama informed 90 staffers, but ZERO Congressmen

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. White House: 90 in Administration Knew of Bergdahl Deal, But Not Congress   Um, we didn’t tell Congress because, um, because we were afraid of a leak bringing danger down on Bergdahl. Yeah, that’s it! We did not want to inform a bunch of folks because we feared for Bergdahl’s life. Yeah! That’s the ticket! Between 80 and 90 administration staffers  knew about the trade of five Taliban leaders for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl even though Congress was kept in the dark, CNN reports, and members of both parties are unhappy about it. During a classified […]

John Kerry on the Taliban Five attacking America after their release – It’s “a lot of Baloney.”

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. John “I was for it before I was against it” Kerry is at it again. It’s obvious that he’s on damage control after his boss said, “Absolutely” when asked if it were possible that the Taliban Five he released might attack America again. While in France, he taped an interview for CNN. Secretary of State John Kerry says it’s “a lot of baloney” to suggest the five Taliban prisoners released in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will return to battle and kill Americans. Still, he tells CNN, if they try they’ll likely be killed themselves. And […]

Chewing Up America

Hey, Barry … The “D” In D-Day Doesn’t Stand For “Doublemint.” Social media users tore into Barack Obama on Friday after the US president was seen chewing gum during solemn ceremonies to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings. People took to Twitter to denounce Obama’s “shameful” and “vulgar” chewing, with one user attacking him as a “lout.” (Newsmax) Benedict Arnold: “What do you think would be my fate if my misguided countrymen were to take me prisoner?” Colonial army Captain: “They would cut off the leg that was wounded at Saratoga and bury it with the honors of […]

Too Dangerous to release in 2011, Obama turns terrorist over for Bergdahl in 2014

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Unclassified Document Shows In 2011 Obama Argued In Court Taliban Commander He Freed In Exchange For Bergdahl Should Not Be Released… Ah, the difference three years makes…in 2011 the Obama regime said this joker was too dangerous to release, but now he’s free so Obama could divert our attention away from the VA Scandal. *sigh* As Managing Editor of this site, I’m finding that I need to start a file named “Obama Scandals,” just so I can keep up with this lawless and totally inept administration. If he was a terror threat in 2011, he’s obviously still […]

Democratic Leadership Turning on Obama

Hat/Tip to the Capitalism Institute. You know it’s pretty bad when the leadership in your own party makes public statements against you and your actions. Well that is exactly what happened this week when a Senator from California said that the President is lying about the Bergdahl Scandal. President Obama blatantly violated federal law and statute when he unilaterally decided to release five highly-dangerous Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo in exchange for captured US Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Obama deliberately neglected to inform Congress before the swap took place, which violates a law that he himself signed last year.  He also […]

Obama says “My government” didn’t need Congressional approval to release Taliban Five

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. In this snippet of an interview, Obama rolls out the Left’s new talking point about the Bergdahl swap. And that is that if someone wears our country’s uniform, we don’t leave them behind. Well then Mr. President, please allow me to ask: WHAT IN THE BLUE HELL HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI THEN?????!!!!!!!!!! He believes he is the government. If Congress does not challenge this, he will be. During an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams, Barack Obama claims – incredibly – that “my government” acted ‘unanimously” in its decision to trade five Taliban commanders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. […]

The Bergdahl Deception

“To allow a guy like [Bergdahl] to be posed as a hero, like Kerry self-posing as a hero, is really an affront to everybody who died there, and that’s why those guys in his platoon have come forward and that’s why we came forward 40 years ago and ten years ago.” – John O’Neill If the Bergdahl affair proves anything, it’s that modern Democrats can never be trusted to ensure the national security.  But most of us knew that already. You don’t need a degree in rocket science to realize that exchanging the high command of the Taliban for one […]

President Obama, Which Side Are You On?

The Obama administration gives away FIVE HIGH LEVEL TALIBAN JIHADISTS and we get a soldier who went AWOL, and that in all probability aided the enemy. What the friggin’ hell? Obama has either totally lost his mind, is insane, or he willingly gave aid to the people who are killing our soldiers; the the very people our soldiers are fighting, the enemy. Yes, Andrew C. McCarthy is correcti n saying that we need to be focusing on the fact that President Obama has freed five high value Jihadist members of the Taliban and Haqqani network while the Taliban and Haqqani […]

Meet the Heroes that died for Bowe “Ashamed to be American” Bergdahl

These men are the real heroes. No matter what the Left in the media say, nor how many times Susan Rice says he served with honor and distinction, Bowe Bergdahl is NOT a hero and, in this author’s opinion, nothing but a sniveling coward.           From the Daily Mail. Bergdahl was serving with the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment in Paktika province near the Pakistani border with Afghanistan when he went missing in the early hours of 30 June 2009. He had been at part of an Observation Post with 28 colleagues men and a few […]

Bergdahl DOES face desertion charges, Left note saying he “…didn’t want to fight for America.”

Hat/Tip to the Daily Mail. A member of Bergdahl’s former Army unit broke his military gag order to speak about Bowe Bergdahl and he confirmed that Bergdahl did indeed desert. Bowe Bergdahl left a note saying he had gone to start a ‘new life’ and a former comrade broke his military gagging order today to tell MailOnline of the jaw-dropping moment he discovered the Taliban POW had walked off from their Afghanistan base. That revelation came just hours before two top government officials confirmed that there will be a new, full investigation into Bergdahl’s disappearance. The soldier, who requested anonymity […]

Soldier: We Were Told To ‘Keep Quiet’ About Bergdahl Leaving Afghan Base

Hat/Tip to CBS DC. So despite the claims by the Obama administration that Bergdahl was a POW, it would seem that the truth is getting out. A soldier claims that he was told by his chain of command to not say anything about Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walking off an Afghan base in 2009. Retired Army Spc. Josh Fuller told Fox News Wednesday that he was told to keep quiet about Bergdahl leaving his post and getting captured by the Taliban. “We had all known that he had deserted his post and there was never anything about him getting captured […]

Caught On Tape: Obama Smiles When Deserter’s Father Praises Allah

Hat/Tip to TeaParty.org You know they call them Freudian Slips because, for just that split second you let your guard down and your true feelings shine through. Well we had one of those moments at the White House in the Rose Garden recently when deserter Bowe Bergdahl’s parents participated in a victory lap press conference with President Obama. While the Obama administration is proudly touting how it was able to free an American soldier who was captured by the Taliban, what no one picked is the fact that Obama SMILED as soon as he heard the most famous war cry […]

Why Team Obama Was Blindsided by the Bergdahl Backlash

Hat/Tip National Review Online. Ralph Peters, a retired Army officer, former enlisted man and now Fox News Strategic Analyst nails this entire Bergdahl scandal on the head. He describes the utter amazement and bamboozlement of officials in the Obama administration in the American Military’s reaction to their ill-fated “trade” of the Taliban Five for Taliban sympathizer and Army deserter, Bowe Bergdahl. Congratulations, Mr. President! And identical congrats to your sorcerer’s apprentice, National Security Adviser Susan Rice. By trying to sell him as an American hero, you’ve turned a deserter already despised by soldiers in the know into quite possibly the […]
