Obama’s master … mistake:
behind the Bergdahl bungle

New York Post, by John Podhoretz

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 6/5/2014 8:54:10 PM

The Obama White House genuinely believed the release of the American soldier who disappeared in 2009 in Afghanistan would provide a triumphant moment for the president and a moment for national unity. Otherwise, there would have been no Rose Garden celebration featuring the president and Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s parents. Some in the White House surely saw the Rose Garden bit as a chance to play rope-a-dope with their political adversaries after weeks of getting beaten up over the Veterans Administration scandal. They might have calculated that a knee-jerk Republican offensive against the deal — Bergdahl in trade for five

Comments:
With all the articles being written since this travesty of power grab by 0bama to circumvent Congress & Pentagon, there is one thing to focus on. That is his immediate impeachment and quit wasting ink on other speculation.

There are too many of us veterans who understand the seriousness of desertion in a combat zone.
Barack should have zapped the deserter using a drone. Instead barack sent out his sunday morning liar to tell us the punk served with honor and distinction.

I fear for my friends in NY/NJ that will have no safety walking their streets. Please stay out of tall buildings and on main streets. Special warning to young people that want to sign up for a military that is run by lackey generals that will sell you out. " Suck it up and salute" if you decide to stay in.

Since US forces are on a Obama devised political timetable to pull out of Afghanistan there will be a time that the Taliban would no longer gain an advantage by detaining Bergdahl, since Bergdahl became a Muslim, and appears have sympathized with the Taliban, when that time came the Taliban probably would have released Bergdahl without Obama having to do a thing.

Note the excellent closing statement: "This was all predictable, but the White House did not predict it — perhaps because the president doesn’t understand that the American people still value honor over expediency."

The pResident is delusional and out of touch with real America. This only indicates how true that is. All that book learning ....and still in the dark as to who we are and what most of us still regard as honor, truth, justice. The fat lady is that much closer to singing.

FTA "They’re not fools, to put it mildly.
The president and his advisers are very intelligent people with good poll data and a feel for what the American people think and want."

Really? You really think that Mr. Podhoretz? Maybe they´re not fools, but they are idiots. And maybe they have a feel for what the American people think and want, but they certainly don´t care about what the American people think and want.

By sending Susan Rice out to lie about Bergdahl, the President inadvertently proved without a shadow of a doubt that she was sent out to lie about Benghazi! This is a true "Gotcha!" moment.

Here´s the significance of this colossal blunder. It´s all on Obama. No "I just learned about this from the news" or "It´s Bush´s fault". Obama has glided through 5 1/2 yrs. without his policies being associated with him
by the lofo voters. The "Limbaugh theorem" if you will. If 79% of Americans hold Obama responsible of the VA scandal, coupled with this shocking deal, then not only is the bloom of the rose, but there is a slow realization by average Americans that Obama is truly dangerous. Can´t wait for Nov.

Most of Obama´s base of support cannot see beyond him being the first black president and still believe that Obama is awesome. That mass of low information voters generally do not have a clue of the concepts of Duty, Honor, Country or military traditions that were created by old white men centuries ago here and in England. For that reason a large percentage of the Democrats must seem to stick with Obama for as long as possible without pivoting to the most probable 2016 Democrat presidential nominee to ensure that their low information voter base does not abandon the Democrats during the November election and in 2016 by simply staying home on Election Day. If that were to happen the Democrats would have little chance of winning those elections and they know it.

When the blind lead the blind, they will both fall into a ditch.
If a leader hearkens to lies, all his ministers will be evil.

Icarus has fallen.
The Affirmative Action hire has used up his eligibility. All the past horrible acts of the regime pale in comparison with the honor being shown to traitor Bergdahl. Anyone who has ever served in the military knows about walking off the job. When you belong to a union you can walk away. But if you walk away from your comrades, you have betrayed them. And there are a LOT of military and former military in this country.
Flyover Country has lots of "duty, honor, country" folks. And they aren´t buying this.

It is going to get really ugly.

Experiencing real life was never on BHO’s to-do-list. Oh, no! During their formative years when most people are busy soaking up invaluable life experience, Obama’s time was occupied by permanently damaging his body with what are blandly referred to as controlled substances. And what about his mind? Thanks to residual amounts of those substances which to this day remain within him, his mind has never been right ever since. Think Junkie Judgment and Permanent Immaturity! We continue being governed by both.

So more people than ever now realize that Obama does not have America´s interests at heart. Now what do we do about it? How will things change when the only major
´opposition´ party can´t put together a coherent message and the main messengers (Boehner, McConnell) are so unappealing? Who will stand up to say that we can be a great nation again, dedicated to true liberty and justice for all? How hard is it to sell the idea that Americans don´t want to be told what to buy, what to say, and what to believe? I want to hear a so-called representative declare that the people have had enough and it´s time to remove the shackles, slash the federal government down to only cover its constitutional duties, and set the people free. I want the other co-equal branches to do their jobs and stop this lawless administration. Time to stop talking and start doing.

First; forget about impeachment. The PC mind set is so deeply entrenched in the national psyche, that is just not going to happen. The storm we have brought upon ourselves must be ridden out.

Every open wound begins to heal with a pain and stiffness that must be tolerated. Øbama will leave a massive scar in our nation. One that will be a reminder to voters for generations to come, never let this happen again. In November, when we retake the Senate and expand the R´s in the House, the healing process will begin. Ø will be isolated and use the remainder of his term to vacation and blather to an ever shrinking base of loyal minions.

When discussing Obama´s so-called trade deal that released 5 serial murderers/war criminals with a family friend - a young woman with a 4-year old son - her response was similar to Harry Reid´s. She can´t see how it effects her so what difference does it make.

I spent the next half-hour explaining why it certainly does matter and effect her. She seemed stunned and sees the big picture now. One down, 100 million to go.

The good thing about lefties is that after a while, they actually start to believe their own propaganda. They believe that the majority of the country think like them now. They don´t realize that most of it is an illusion.

Yesterday, when I was on a Bergdahl story on WaPoo, there was a comment from a guy with donkey ears for a avatar. He kept talking about the "troubled young man" and how we are too quick to judge him, etc. etc. etc. The stupid donkey didn´t think about all the other young men who died or will die as a result of coddling this poor "troubled" young man. People like him get others killed. And if he were so sensitive, he should never have joined the VOLUNTEER military. Even if he didn´t know until it was too late, he could have sought out help from medical for psychological evaluation. No, instead, he put others in danger as well as our country. Human donkeys are stupid.

A caller to Mark Levin´s show said Bergdahl is a DEFECTOR rather than just a deserter. Imminently worse, as he did leave the base to SEEK out the Taliban to aid them and join with their forces. He is a traitor and committed treason the caller related.

Hagel quietly notifies Congress
of transfer of 6 Gitmo detainees
Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel quietly notified Congress last week that the military is set to transfer six Guantanamo Bay prisoners to Uruguay as soon as next month, The New York Times revealed Wednesday. The deal has been waiting for Mr. Hagel’s approval since March, but stalled after the Obama administration received a wave of backlash for releasing five Taliban detainees to Qatar in exchange for the release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The administration did not give Congress 30-days notice in that deal, but argued it was still legal because any delay could have risked Sgt. Bergdahl’s life.

California Death Penalty
Unconstitutional, Federal Judge Says

A federal judge in Southern California ruled Wednesday that California’s death penalty was unconstitutional. The “dysfunctional administration of California’s death penalty system,” wrote Judge Cormac J. Carney of United States District Court, has led to “inordinate and unpredictable” delays in the execution of inmates. The delays, the judge wrote, means that sentences are carried out against only “a trivial few of those sentenced to death.” In essence, he wrote, sentences by juries have been transformed to “life in prison, with the remote possibility of death.” In making his ruling, Judge Carney vacated the death sentence of

Shannon Guess Richardson, 36, was also ordered to pay $367,000 restitution as part of a plea bargain for pleading guilty in December to one count of developing, producing, possessing and transferring a biological agent for use as a weapon.

Israel agreed Wednesday to halt its airstrikes on Gaza for five hours in order to allow humanitarian aid, following a request from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The military said in a statement Wednesday that it would hold its fire for five hours starting at 10:00 a.m. local time on Thursday. It warns however that it will retaliate "firmly and decisively" if Hamas or other militant groups launch attacks on Israel during that time. The cease-fire request came from U.N.

Washington - The White House is defying a congressional subpoena by keeping a top political aide to President Barack Obama from testifying at a hearing Wednesday.

Lawmakers pushed back Tuesday against the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to garnish the paychecks of accused polluters, advancing a bill that would block the new authority. The House Committee on Appropriations approved the countermeasure as a policy rider on a $30.2 billion spending bill for natural resources agencies, including the EPA, the Interior Department and U.S. Forest Service. The amendment by Rep. Tom Graves, Georgia Republican, passed the committee in a voice vote, signaling an absence of strong opposition, if not support for prohibiting the EPA from claiming authority to garnish wages to collect fines

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the
