Guilty of desertion, Bowe
Bergdahl may get $300K

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 11/10/2017 2:25:21 PM

Now that Bowe Bergdahl has pleaded guilty to desertion in combat, taxpayers may owe him several hundred thousand dollars in back pay and benefits. [Snip] It might strike some taxpayers as somewhat goofy that Bergdahl could be entitled to a large sum of money for willingly walking off his Army guard post in Paktika province in mid-2009 and then spending several years in Taliban captivity. In a highly controversial 2014 move, Barack Obama, who wanted the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility emptied anyway, swapped five senior Taliban leaders imprisoned there for Bergdahl’s release.

If he gets this cash the people who lost loved ones or were wounded because of his admitted guilt should sue him for every penny he get from this cash and any book deal he may get.

All he deserves from the taxpayers is a $2 length of sturdy rope, with a robust hangman´s knot on the end wrapped around his neck and the other end permanently tied to a high branch. Friends or family should be responsible for his remains, be they buried, burned and scattered, or unceremoniously fed to sharks or carrion.

I find the prospect of him getting back pay and benefits to be as heinously offensive as his desertion.

He was NO POW. Those news clips of him being turned over for 5 high ranking terrorists showed he was well fed and fit. All he did was a few pretend blinks to make it look good. He deserved a bullet to the head instead of the wrist slap he got. That judge should be cashiered out of the service.

Democrats aiming for big November

Every other winter, about 10 months before the next congressional elections, a batch of members decides they’ve had enough. They retire or move on to more lucrative, family-friendly jobs. Often, these departures involve members of the minority party, who have a frustrating, unpleasant Capitol Hill life lacking any real control over the legislative agenda. Sure enough, that’s happening again in the winter of 2018. But this time is quite different. This time it’s the members of the controlling majority Republicans who are packing it in — and in large numbers.

Is Donald Trump’s brand of turmoil politics giving the ‘conservative’ label a bad name? Maybe Republican members of Congress who aren’t very conservative? Or perhaps Nancy Pelosi’s liberal charisma is attracting converts? Something is going on. When asked over the past quarter-century, more Americans have considered themselves conservative than liberal, sometimes by as much as 20 percentage points. That’s one reason why — have you noticed? — in recent years liberals have tried to re-brand themselves as ‘progressive.’ [Snip] More Americans still do claim to be conservative. But the lead is shrinking. And the reasons are revealing.

If you’ve got a minute to pause from our collective obsession with a gossipy book of dubious veracity, here’s an issue of compelling importance that reveals another side of this president and his administration: Iran and how Donald Trump addresses the deadly anti-regime demonstrations now convulsing that historic land that clearly is the linchpin of any future regional stability, or the opposite. The last time such nationwide protests erupted there – the Green Revolution of 2009 -- Barack Obama was painfully reluctant to involve the U.S. [Snip] ?Though there’s little media notice these days, there’s no confusion this time. “Oppressive

Here’s a puzzling twist: The winner of the 2016 presidential election is losing badly in polls. And the loser of the 2016 election is losing even worse. The economy’s grown nicely for six straight months. Unemployment is way down. Stock markets are way up. So, at the end of the new president’s first year, why are Americans so unhappy politically? What’s going on? The evidence of trouble is overwhelming. [Snip] As Trump’s base has proven stubbornly supportive no matter what, so too has his far larger mob of disapprovers, who seems to ignore or can’t make out the good news amid

For years, Iran has been accurately labeled as the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. Now, quietly with little notice beyond the region, the militant regime in Iran has established a major land force in Syria effectively threatening the existence of Israel. Using the cover of helping Syrian President Bashar al-Assad against domestic insurgents, Tehran now has an estimated 125,000 troops in that country, outnumbering the Syrian army, and enhanced by Russian forces. [Snip] Under pressure from U.S.-advised troops and Iranian and Russian attacks, ISIS has effectively declined as an organized military threat, leaving Iranian and allied Hezbollah forces with

President Trump’s announcement that he, unlike other recent presidents, really is going to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel accomplished several goals, many of them beneficial, all of them revealing about the unorthodox 45th chief executive. It showed Trump fulfilling a major campaign promise, for once unfettered by congressional GOP laggards. It earned him a burst of positive publicity among supporters of that major ally, a rare bastion of diverse democracy in a region chronically torn by tumult and violence. Trump’s bold announcement also sets him apart from recent presidents of both parties, who made numerous similar vows, then

In a rare confirmation of a new investigation, the Justice Department has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee for its uncensored documents relating to last year’s congressional probe into Planned Parenthood’s practices and sale of fetal body tissues. A year ago in the committee’s final report — Human Fetal Tissue Research: Context and Controversy — chairman Chuck Grassley said he found sufficient evidence of abortion providers transferring body parts and tissue from aborted fetuses for research and charging more than the cost of acquiring the material. The Iowa senator also said evidence shows that the Justice Department in several administrations had

The first murky details are emerging about the October assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, a journalist in Malta who tied the famous Panama Papers to allegedly corrupt activities of that island’s government. The 53-year-old blogger was known for her criticism of the government of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, suggesting corrupt ties between his confidantes and official circles in Azerbaijan. She used information culled from the Panama Papers. Those documents — nearly 12 million of them — were leaked from a Panamanian law firm in 2015. They detailed confidential financial information and investments of public officials and wealthy individuals around the

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections.

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact
