Obama was at the City Club in Cleveland and made a total ass of himself. Reaching for straws his new “suggestion” is for a law to make it mandatory to vote. According to the Constitutional scholar, that would be the only way to even things out when it came to the enormous amount of cash flow in the elections. He looked and sounded like a first year high school kid on a freshman debate team, unsure and gawky. Obama has become a major embarrassment and his lackeys and the lapdog media can’t change that perception. As he awkwardly explained his reasoning there was no applause from the audience. Not a single sound was heard. It was beyond pathetic. He should stop going off TOTUS since he is not a natural speaker and doesn’t know how to talk to a crowd. Other than deciding we should have only the rights dictated by him, he spent his time whining about how the R-words were being mean to him. The AFL-CIO, which is pretty much behind any Dem who is still breathing, wasn’t charmed by BO either. http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2015/03/president_barack_obama_brings_1.html The comments are more interesting than the article.
Huggy feely MO also had her awkward moments while explaining to the Japanese why it’s important to educate their girls. Her first greet and meet with the Emperor was more than a little strange. She didn’t know whether to bow, curtsy or shake hands. So, in her own inimitable way she did all three…at once. Made for an interesting encounter.
The same kind of tact is seen when she greeted the First Lady of Japan. They are definitely not the huggy feely type of people, feeling it is too impolite to grab at another person. The grimace on the FLOJ pretty much tells the story. Why does that loony woman have to be so grabby? You would think she would learn protocol when visiting a foreign country.
Why the hell would any Judge believe anything the DOJ said? It’s evident they do what they want in spite of injunctions and lie to cover up their illegal activities. from Breitbart
The U.S. Government lied to a federal judge, misrepresented facts and illegally gave 100,081 illegal aliens immigration status despite a pending lawsuit and an injunction. That is the argument that attorneys representing Texas and more than two dozen other states made. During the heated court hearing Andrew Hanen, a U.S. District Court Judge, said that the apparent violation had made him look like an idiot since he initially believed the U.S. Government.
Deception is the way they do business in the Department of Injustice.
You must have heard about the EPA deciding that guests are using waaaay too much water in hotel rooms. They have a fix for that, monitoring water usage.
In the view of Big Government specialists, you are usually the problem when they address any challenge. And since you are the nail and they are the hammer, it’s their job to correct your behavior. We can only wonder how many more grants such as this one are floating around out there.
Well, wonder no more there is another grant “floating around out there” to study how backyard barbecues are destroying the planet. The EPA will be coming for the hot tubs soon, the next scourge of pollution.

After watching the clip, Nancy Giles turns to Smooth, begins gyrating her shoulders and says, “I can’t help but tease Jay about the kinda like, brotha way he was trying to talk, like “hey” with the rap music in the background and like, down with people.”
Just can’t make this stuff up.
The White House has lost and the R-words in the Senate have won. No matter what the lapdog media says, Cotton was no fool when making it very clear what clout the Senate had in regards to a non-binding agreement with any country. Liberals were “outraged”, their usual stance, calling the 47 Senators “traitors” and other sundry nastiness including a petition to have them brought up on charges of treason. But, that letter let the cat out of the bag. The plan all along was to use the UN Security Council to make an end run around the Senate. What has been called a “bilateral deal” is nothing more than a ploy to have this deal backed up by a UN Security resolution which the Mullahs felt would bind the US to the so called “treaty”. If anyone thinks the White House wasn’t involved in this ploy, think again. It is exactly what they were planning on doing. Got to admire those Senators that signed the Cotton letter. From Breitbart….
Secretary of State John Kerry said that Cotton’s letter was “unconstitutional” and that “they cannot change an executive agreement.” He continued by saying that the letter was “unprecedented, unprecedented. …It’s false information and directly calculated to interfere, and basically say, ‘Don’t negotiate with them, you’ve got to negotiate with 535 members of Congress.’”
Of course, it is not unprecedented for Congress to involve itself in foreign policy in precisely the way that Cotton and 46 other Republican senators did. And Barack Obama reportedly contacted Iran through back channels before his election to encourage them not to cut a deal with President George W. Bush; he’d be much more helpful to the mullahs after his inevitable election.
Now the Obama administration has already removed Iran from the list of terrorists. See how “helpful” he is to the Mullahs?
“Many people are already making plans for Iran’s integration into the regional and world economy, particularly the Europeans and the Asians, who see Iran as an unprecedented opportunity to do business,” said Dubai-based geopolitical analyst Theodore Karasik. “Because the country’s infrastructure is literally 30 years behind, every sector or commodity is open … Iran is already preparing for this.”
And that’s how you bring an economy, ours and the EU, back to life again. Human Rights abuses and terrorism be damned. That is some huge ass kissing! Dissidents are criticizing Obama and sending letters smuggled out of Iran.
“When the people of Iran asked you to support them against the tyranny of the Shia clerics over five years ago you, the president of the most powerful country on earth, were secretly writing letters to the dictator of Iran,” he writes in the letter, which was smuggled out of Iran by human rights activists and provided to the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, an advocacy group.
Obama’s outreach has only empowered Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, writes Tabarzadi, who says he shares a prison cell with Saeed Abedini.
“In June 2009, as Khamenei ruthlessly ordered his paramilitary forces to kill people on the streets and on university campuses, imprisoning and torturing journalists, intellectuals, the young and the old mercilessly, your friendly communications with the tyrant of Iran continued in the name of the people of the United States, ignoring the human rights of the people of Iran,” the letter states. “You helped Khamenei to continue his Islamic tyranny in the name of Allah and Islam.”
“The Islamic clerics have taken our nation hostage to their fanatical Islamic tyranny,” he adds. “In 2009 when the people of Iran loudly and clearly asked for your support for their freedom and sovereignty, you ignored us and empowered the tyrants to imprison, torture, and kill us.”
Speaking of backstabbing, who doesn’t think Obama and Val-Jar didn’t set Clinton up. They knew she had the “private e-mail server” and certainly didn’t mention that they would not accept mail from that particular account. They admitted that e-mail was sent to Obama from that particular address. Does anyone honestly believe it wasn’t noticed? That is the hole card to keep Clinton out of the race in 2016. If that doesn’t work there are the rumors emanating from the White House of “foreign donations” which may be a conflict of interest. Clinton certainly dug her own hole by trusting Obama who never had the intention of backing her in the 2016 Presidential race. She got sucked in by her own ego and now has been left to twist in the wind. Wonder how she feels about spewing the White House talking points on Benghazi now. While I don’t support Clinton, it’s very unsettling to watch the unethical behavior of those who claim to be our superiors in every way use these type of thug tactics. The White House is denying the leaks but, we all know how they operate in the age of Obama.
While Obama is meddling in the 2016 elections, his lackeys are busy, again, meddling in the ME. Israeli elections to be exact. Breaking the law is something Obama and his lackeys are not concerned about. After all laws are for the little people. Free Beacon has an account of their illegal activities.
The PeaceWorks Network Foundation—a nonprofit linked to Obama campaign figures and also known as OneVoice—was identified in a January letter authored by U.S. lawmakers as having funneled money to campaign-related activities in the upcoming election despite being incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization. Such organizations are forbidden from engaging in foreign or domestic political campaign activities.
PeaceWorks moved to create a new organization that could engage in such electoral activities after the letter was issued, new documents obtained by the Free Beacon show. The new organization, named PeaceWorks Action Inc., was incorporated in Delaware in February 2015.
However, multiple sources familiar with the controversy said the establishment of that new organization would not shield the earlier activities of the original 501(c)(3) organization from U.S. law.
In my view Obama deserves all the disdain that can be heaped upon him. He makes the US look petty and small and, is the worse pResident this country has ever voted in to the highest office of our land.
The Revolting Truth
We are coming o Rome. Islamic state threatens to throw homosexuals from the leaning tower of “pizza”.
Politicalization of genocide. Susan Rice is complicit on more then one occasion.
Indeed, Madeleine Albright, then the American Ambassador to the UN, opposed leaving even this tiny UN force. She also pressured other countries “to duck, as the death toll leapt from thousands to tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands … the absolute low point in her career as a stateswoman.”
In a 2001 article published in The Atlantic, Samantha Power, author of the Pulitzer-Prize winning A Problem from Hell who is now Rice’s successor as American Ambassador to the United Nations, referred to Rice and her colleagues in the Clinton Administration as Bystanders to Genocide. She quotes Rice in her 2002 book as saying, “If we use the word ‘genocide’ and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November.
How cold blooded and calculating can any human being be?
That Rice would have brought up the midterm elections as a more important consideration than stopping the mass murder of so many men, women, and children that their bodies were damming the rivers of Rwanda is one of the most heartbreaking pronouncements ever uttered by American official.
But she did not stop there.
Rice then joined Madeline Albright, Anthony Lake, and Warren Christopher as part of a coordinated effort not only to impede UN action to stop the Rwandan genocide but to minimize public opposition to American inaction by removing words like “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing” from government communications on the subject.
“Never again”, for the Democrats, has turned into a huge “never mind”. I guess #black lives only matter in politics than genocide when Rice was in the Clinton Administration and now in the Obama Administration. Asking anyone to vote Democrat is asking them to support genocide on a massive scale, over and over again. Don’t think for one second Hillary wasn’t aware of this either.
Egypt has finally made their move…declares Hamas a terrorist org.
“It has been proven without any doubt that the movement has committed acts of sabotage, assassinations and the killing of innocent civilians and members of the armed forces and police in Egypt,” the court wrote, according to state news agency MENA.
The ruling said that Hamas’ fighters had used heavy weapons against the army, and that the group was colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood, which Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has described as the root of extremism. Morsi belonged to the Brotherhood.
“It has been also ascertained with documents that (Hamas) has carried out bombings that have taken lives and destroyed institutions and targeted civilians and the armed forces personnel,” the ruling said. “This movement works for the interests of the terrorist Brotherhood organization.”
On its official website, Hamas called the decision a “shocking and dangerous” one that targeted the Palestinian people.
Here’s a suggestion to the Palestinians, stop killing Israelis and Egyptians. That’s why there is a wall between you and them on both sides of Gaza.
According to Kerry Moscow has been lying to his face but, we already knew that. Other liars are located in Iran. Yes, that Iran that Kerry is also negotiating with, whose foreign minister keeps screaming and shouting in Kerry’s face during the ongoing nuclear proliferation talks. Since 2006 there have been rumors of a secret facility built near Tehran at a military base located on Army Boulevard. Looks like the jig is up and the secret is out. Pictures of the facility have been smuggled out of Iran and into the hands of the NCRI. One picture shows a 6″ thick lead lined door leading into the underground facility. Something tells me the State Dept and Obama will do their best to keep this as quiet as possible. After all Obama’s legacy is far too important to insist this be investigated. Maybe Congress will get off their compliant asses to insist on sanctions. The other news is Iran has smuggled at least 1 billion dollars of US bank notes into the country.
An Iranian government official with knowledge of how the dollars were obtained said front companies had “mushroomed” in Dubai to facilitate payments to Iran.
The use of multiple front companies, which bought dollars from currency traders in Dubai and Iraq, was preferred as it concealed the overall size of the dollar purchasing operation, the Iranian and Western sources said. Front companies operate at arm’s length from the Iranian government or state-backed organizations, the sources said.
Suitcases full of dollars were carried to Iran from Dubai, and sometimes Turkey, the Iranian government official said. Groups of three or four couriers would usually fly first or business class, the official said.
In return for dollars, the front companies were paid in United Arab Emirates dirhams or oil, the Iranian and Western sources said.
A report last year by the U.N. Security Council’s Panel of Experts on Iran said Iran had used cash and money changers to help get around banking restrictions.
Now contrast the kid glove treatment of Iran to the nasty political verbiage coming out of the White House in regard to Netanyahu. Susan Rice, yes that lying hack (Benghazi), made it clear:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s acceptance of an invitation to address the US Congress, without the blessing of the White House, is destructive to US-Israeli ties, a senior official said….[snip]
Rice, in an interview Tuesday with journalist Charlie Rose on PBS, said US relations with Israel have always had a bipartisan nature. But the invitation for the speech now breaks that tradition and adds a political component, she said.
“What has happened over the last several weeks by virtue of the invitation that was issued by the Speaker and the acceptance of it by Prime Minister Netanyahu two weeks in advance of his election is that on both sides there has now been injected a degree of partisanship,” Rice said.
“Which is not only unfortunate, I think it is destructive of the fabric of the relationship,” Rice added.
The only thing destructive to our allies is having Obama sitting in the Oval Office. It has nothing to do with politics or elections and everything to do with Iran. Obama’s legacy is leaving the world in tatters all for his personal political one-upmanship. How he can sleep at night after unleashing hell on the innocent people of the ME is beyond understanding. It’s Obama who has caused the deaths of thousands and the displacement of millions.
One bright note in the ME this week, a US jury found the PLO and PA responsible for the deaths of dozens of Americans in terrorist attacks. Finally, after decades, justice is served. Of course, there will be appeals but, the evidence is irrefutable. They are the originators of the suicide bomb and terrorism. The PLO were the instigators of a 19 year civil war in Lebanon as well. The head of the PLO, Meshad has left Qatar, another state that has spent millions supporting terrorism, and is now a “guest” of Turkey. He’s running out of places to hide.
Jurors in Manhattan federal court awarded $218.5 million in damages to 10 American families who brought the case, a sum that is automatically tripled to $655.5 million under a 1992 U.S. anti-terrorism law, lawyers for the families said
Just when you think it couldn’t get much worse at Foggy Bottom.

As one Democrat close to her put it, voters have learned that she is tough; now she can also present herself as a sensitive candidate capable of nurturing the nation at a difficult time.
She did so well running the State Dept, bringing home all those treaties, we should just hire her for Preezy because she has lady parts? Give me a break!

Jobs for Jihadists program to be accompanied by courses in finger painting, basket weaving, drum circles.
At the White House Summit on Extremism That Shall Remain Unspecified Because Violent Followers Belonging To Unnamed Extremist Movement Might Take Extreme Offense And Act Extremely, the feds are touting a groundbreaking new strategy to fight terrorists.
The Religion of Perpetual Outrage is just misunderstood and, anyway, it’s all our fault.
Vice President Joe Biden opened the convention of jihad-coddlers on Tuesday by emphasizing the need for “respect” (cha-ching) and “a sense of community.” White House senior aides spoke generically about terrorists of “all shapes and sizes,” as they studiously avoided the precise nature and identity of the perpetrators of evil that precipitated the meeting.
We aren’t nuanced enough to figure out the difference between Islamic extremists burning people alive, beheading people and committing genocide, and Muslims like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser who are just as appalled by the extremist element of Islam. Why does the Community Organizer-in-Chief think the crazies of Islam have “legitimate grievances”? Isn’t he “nuanced” enough to see the difference between them and ordinary Americans who practice Islam? BO, whether he realized it or not, made this whole Sociology 101 speech all about religion. He failed miserably – Bless his little heart.
The love affair is over. BO blames the (gasp) media for the distortion of Islam to the general public. He should just stop talking.
. So the image they get of Muslims or Islam is in the news. And given the existing news cycle, that can give a very distorted impression. A lot of the bad, like terrorists who claim to speak for Islam, that’s absorbed by the general population.
Has anyone else noticed the BO has taken sides in the Sunni/Shiite conflict that’s ongoing?
A U.S. federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked President Barack Obama’s plan to protect millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation, an issue likely to be seized upon in the 2016 presidential campaign.
Ruling in favor of about two dozen U.S. states opposed to the plan, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, Texas, said the administration had not complied with procedure.
From the Washington Times
“The DHS was not given any ‘discretion by law’ to give 4.3 million removable aliens what the DHS itself labels as ‘legal presence,’ ” Judge Hanen wrote in issuing an injunction. “In fact, the law mandates that these illegally-present individuals be removed. The DHS has adopted a new rule that substantially changes both the status and employability of millions. These changes go beyond mere enforcement or even non-enforcement of this nation’s immigration scheme.”
Illegal aliens complaining because they can’t get free stuff. Living in suburbia is just so hard, they’re the victims doncha know.
he quickly learned that being poor and undocumented and living far from the well-established immigrant networks found in the nation’s big cities made life especially difficult. There was the absence of public transportation (he cannot legally drive), the scarcity of lawyers with immigration expertise and a feeling of isolation fed by his inability to speak English and the lack of opportunities to learn it….[snip]
Carina Diaz, 31, who emigrated from Mexico in 2005 and lives in Genesee County, said that until recently, her children’s schools neither provided translators for parent-teacher conferences nor translated important documents into Spanish.
The Obama administration will not accept applications for legal status from undocumented immigrants on Wednesday after a federal judge in Texas blocked implementation of President Obama’s policy deferring the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the administration would appeal the court ruling. “in the meantime, we recognize we must comply with it,” he said.
Most Americans are very open minded. We are not against legal immigrants nor their choosing to apply and come here. But, we are not interested in welcoming those who come here illegally, it doesn’t matter which country you come from, what your religion happens to be, or the color of your skin.
Going to look a lot like WWI, with high tech. Troops being sent incrementally to the ME for “humanitarian purposes” and “constant combat”. The 4,000 troops from Fort Carson are trained and on the move.
While BO keeps insisting he needs a new AUMF, he is very busy ramping up our troop presence in the ME. This deployment brings the number to 7,000.
Egypt launched airstrikes on Islamic State targets in Libya this morning as it ‘seeks retribution’ for the barbaric filmed beheading of 21 Coptic Christians.
There were at least seven strikes in Derna in the east of the country, which has become a hotbed of Islamic extremism since Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011.
It is the first time Egypt has announced military action against Islamist targets in its western neighbour, having previously denied it targeted militants there, and the first time militants connected with the Islamic State terror group have been hit with airstrikes outside Syria and Iraq.
More “enemies of the State”. Does this sound familiar?
“I have been warning of this since 2011. Unfortunately, we are galloping at full speed toward … a point where the society drifts into clash and becomes unmanageable.”
Kill a Jordanian or Egyptian citizen the leaders kill you back, kill American citizens our leader goes golfing and fundraising. His “enemies” aren’t Islamic, they are us, according to his “world view”.
Think about BO’s list of “enemies”. Now he’s asking us to remember that during the Christian Crusades there were a lot of terrible things done in the name of religion. He has to go back that far, to 1095, to find an equivalency to the Muslim extremists of the 21st century? Pretty pathetic that he tries, just like the Islamists, to paint a picture of the Christian west with as ugly a brush as possible. In the mean time, Islamists are committing genocide in the ME and Africa, raping little girls, enslaving them and the women, doing their best to wipe out every single minority faith, beheading, crucifying and burying little boys alive. But, at the National Prayer Breakfast he protects the savages of Islam by equating them with the Crusades. His Islamic upbringing is showing and it’s pretty ugly on the face of it.
We have a UN Ambassador, Samantha Powers, who has won Pulitzer Prizes for her books concerning genocide. Where is she? Where is her voice in the wake of the genocide in the Sudan, or in the ME or for that matter Africa. Boko Haram kills 2,000 villagers and we don’t hear a damned thing from BO or Powers. ISIS (ISIL) commits genocide in Iraq and Syria and again, nothing. While children are being mass murdered our PC government sits on their hands, says nothing except “we will double our vigilance”. How sick and perverted is that and, what does it even mean? Does it mean the US will keep watching as they behead our citizens and burn people alive (just like Mohammed did)? Will his all important Iranian deal let him overlook the mass murdering of children for the sake of his legacy (just like Mohammed did)?
Turkey won’t enter the fray and the UAE has dropped out of BO’s “coalition”. The reason is perfectly clear, Assad of Syria (Iran’s lapdog) will stay in power through the “Iran Deal”. His deal with Iran is another North Korea in the making. He refuses to arm the Kurds, don’t want to upset Turkey more than he has, and arming the Sunnis fighting against ISIS (ISIL) will upset the Iranians who will then walk out on the Faux Deal. So the savagery continues for the sake of BO’s “legacy”. It’s all about him, always has been.
The civilized world is not obligated to sacrifice precious lives, even for a profoundly moral cause. We are not infinitely powerful. But we have an elementary right and duty to tell the truth, and to act on it when we can. Obama’s abandonment of millions and millions of people is a cruel defeat for elementary morality. Those who don’t get that are sociopaths, and those who twist it are liars. Abandoning Afghanistan is not, as the delusional left will say, some sort of victory. The rise of barbarian sadistic regimes, those who routinely oppress all women and girls because they can, is not – repeat: not – a wonderful moral victory.
All of this is the result of BO’s foreign policy and his micromanagement of the Defense Dept. No one trusts him, no one believes anything he says.
State Dept “fixing everything” ..in the most juvenile of ways… trying to assuage their guilty consciences for the damage they have done all over the world. Still, you just can’t fix stupid nor arrogance, hashtag diplomacy.
Savannah Guthrie insults thin skinned Pouter-in-Chief in interview…NBC’s Guthrie Grills Obama: Critics Say You’re ‘Delusional’ And ‘Passive’ on Terrorism - Well, you know she is never going to get another interview.
“The criticism that I hear a lot of you, even from your political allies, is you came into office, you were the president that was going to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and that you are so focused on doing that and not getting the U.S. entangled in another war that you are sometimes slow to react, that you’re passive.” Obama again showed his frustration at having someone hold him accountable: “Savannah, you’ve repeated that comment three different ways…” He proceeded to take a shot at critics “who want us to shoot first and aim later” and “typically get this country into really bad situations.” Guthrie pointed to the reality in the Middle East: “Haven’t the forces of militant extremism, Jihadism, grown stronger on your watch? If you look at Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen – a place where Al Qaeda’s – that branch is so active and vicious and now the government, our ally, just collapsed.”
The only really bad situation is having BO elected.
Another of Bo’s priorities, fighting obesity in India. Again, reality doesn’t seem to be one of his strong points. Butt, he is willing to give MO’s NoFatKidsBehind initiative to the Indian government to fight chronic childhood obesity.
The president did not address the United Nation’s World Food Program ranking of India as one of the hungriest countries in the world.
UN agencies and non-governmental organization have pointed to undernourishment, and underweight children, as a serious problem in India.
“An estimated 32.7 percent of the Indian population lives on less than US$ 1.25 per day,” says the UN World Food Program. “The country is home to a quarter of all undernourished people worldwide. Any global impact on hunger requires progress in food and nutrition security in India.”

Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR is a member) visited the State Dept., declares “jihad” two days later. BO’s buddies at it again, expect more carnage as BO and State try to topple Al Sisi’s government to benefit the Islamic caliphate (much like they are doing in Israel).
The Brotherhood’s renewed call for jihad comes at a time when current Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is cracking down on the group and imprisoning many of its supporters, who notoriously engaged in violence following the ouster of Brotherhood-ally Mohamed Morsi.
Egypt experts said the timing of this declaration is an embarrassment for the State Department.
“The fact that the Brotherhood issued its call to jihad two days after its meeting at the State Department will be grist for endless anti-American conspiracy theories about a supposed partnership between Washington and the Brotherhood,” said Eric Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). “The State Department should have foreseen what an embarrassment this would be.”

Winter arrived, 15 inches of the white stuff fell yesterday.
Looks as if Bergdahl will be charged with desertion in spite of BO’s objections. That Rose Garden photo-op is such a major embarrassment for him. Trading jihadists for a deserter is such a coup.
According to the colonel’s internal Pentagon sources, the Army has already charged Bergdahl with desertion but has been stymied in pursuing the normal court-martial processes due to oppressive command influence from the White House. According to Shaffer’s sources, the immediate culprit is Ben Rhodes, current deputy national security adviser for strategic communication for Barack Obama.
White House fear is totally understandable. If you had traded five key terrorist leaders for one American G.I. and your hero turned out to be a deserter who willingly left his post and his unit and went over to the enemy in time of war, wouldn’t you be embarrassed? Worse, had you quite publicly invited said deserter’s parents to stroll congenially and intimately through the White House Rose Garden with you, and then had that event broadcast round the world, wouldn’t you be embarrassed?

The rest of the story Michelle Malkin …read it all
“The fact that our government negotiated with terrorists and our enemy is incomprehensible. The fact that they exchanged five war criminals for a traitor is sickening. The worst part for those of us that suffered through that time is that PFC Bergdahl is being hailed as some kind of hero. He was automatically promoted to Specialist and Sergeant, ranks he does not deserve and did not earn. [snip]Are you listening, Capitol Hill and America? The Bowe Bergdahl mess isn’t just a story about one deserter, but two. There’s the muddle-headed lowlife who left his post and brothers behind. And there’s the corrupt commander-in-chief who has jeopardized more American soldiers’ lives to “rescue” Bergdahl by bowing to the Taliban, while snubbing the surviving heroes and at least 8 dead American soldiers who lost their lives because of him.
There are also claims he hasn’t been charged. If he hasn’t been it will be for political reasons to keep the Clown-in-Chief from looking like a major asshat. It would also make their “claims” about Benghazi incredulous and might hurt Shrillary in her campaign to become Preezy. State Department Blocking Benghazi Committee Access To Witnesses
The State Department is blocking Congressional access to key first-hand witnesses of the 9/11 Benghazi attacks, citing a need to protect their personal safety.
“We understand the committee’s interest in interviewing these agents and I’m sure the committee does not want to take any action that would create risks to their personal safety or their ability to do their jobs,” Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Joel Rubin said during his opening statement at a hearing today of the Benghazi Select Committee.

I would like to recommend two programs that caught my eye by chance. One is called “Patriots Rising”, a historical account of the contributions made by average Americans and their heroic efforts in the Revolutionary War. Most of them were just children in their teens, it was totally amazing. Seen on the American Heroes channel. The other is an ongoing series called “The Sons of Liberty”, some artistic license, but a great background on the why and where of the Revolution. Want to know why we are who we are, best learn where we came from. Available on the History Channel.
