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.

The emergence of two presidents
named Donald J. Trump
McClatchy Newspapers, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 11/14/2017 6:12:05     Post Reply
During the 2016 political campaign, with Hillary Clinton clearly headed for White House victory over her unorthodox GOP opponent, Donald Trump made the bold claim that he could change and become anything he wanted. “It’s very easy being presidential,” he proclaimed with the confidence of a billionaire. The first fifth of the Donald Trump presidency has proven the accuracy of Donald Trump’s claim. He can indeed change and become presidential — but only during his foreign trips as United States commander-in-chief and leader of the free world. We’re witnessing that other President Trump now during his five-nation, nearly two-week journey around

In this modern age, Americans’ worst fears seem to be shifting sharply from personal safety to electronic security. See Also: New Roy Moore accuser: He sexually assaulted me when I was 16 Two recent Gallup Polls confirm this change. The first poll this month found that citizen concerns about walking alone at night near their home have fallen to a 52-year-low of 30%. The average fear level since 1965 has been 38%, the poll reported, with the highest level coming in at 48% in 1982.

Quietly, the U.S. builds its first
Army base inside Israel
Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 11/13/2017 3:02:01     Post Reply
In a little-noticed but significant move by the Trump administration, the United States has begun construction on its first military base within Israel. The permanent facility flying the U.S. flag will be independently operated by American troops on the IDF Air Defense School grounds in southern Israel’s Negev Desert near Beersheba. Its mission was described as defending against rocket and missile attacks. But it’s also both a symbolic gesture of the deep political and defense solidarity that both countries’ leaders have stressed and a substantive one, since it places an unknown number of American military members on the ground where hostile

The Windy City’s population is falling again this year as nearly two residents per day are blown away by gunfire or carved to death by knives. [Snip] Mayor Emanuel’s machine City Council is focused on another critical urban issue: Pedestrians texting while crossing the street. Also talking on cells. Chicago is a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants. But not for walking texters. With all the city’s other crime clearly under control, the proposed municipal legislation would have Chicago police officers monitoring crosswalks for “distracted walking” — pedestrians texting or talking on a cell within city crosswalks

It’s still very early, of course. But right now it looks like last Sunday’s killing rampage during religious services in Sutherland Springs, Texas, will also claim the life of the small, clapboard church itself. Twenty-six people, including an unborn child and nine other children, were gunned down at the First Baptist Church in Texas’ worst mass shooting. [Snip] So deep and raw remain the emotional wounds from that Sabbath shooting that Pastor Frank Pomeroy, who lost his own 14-year-old daughter Annabelle, has told Southern Baptist Convention leaders that any further services in that bullet-riddled church would be too painful for

For the next 52 weeks you’re likely to hear that pretty much every single news event will have an impact on the 2018 midterm elections and President Trump’s political prospects. Some of that is true. But here’s a new overriding wrinkle to keep in mind: The most important factor deciding whether the Republican Party maintains control of Congress is actually President Trump himself and his behavior. [Snip] Off-year elections are actually a fascinating element of American politics. With no parliamentary vote of confidence available to grade a president halfway through a term, the biennial ballot outcomes for all House seats

Perhaps you’ve heard a little something about President Trump fighting publicly with members of his own party. The media loves these he-said-then-he-said stories of political conflict. They’re so easy to cover and self-destructive to the GOP cause. So they’re churned out day after day, enabling this president to manipulate coverage through mere tweets and dominate consecutive news cycles. What you haven’t heard much about is the acidic disarray among Democrats. That’s understandable. Democrats in Washington have become basically irrelevant. They lost control of the House. They lost control of the Senate. They lost control of the White House. This is

Just in time for President Trump’s visit next month, China’s President Xi Jinping has had himself elevated to a level of political deification unseen in the Middle Kingdom since Mao Zedong. At the end of a week-long Communist Party Congress Tuesday, the party’s new leadership, the Politburo’s Standing Committee, was unveiled in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. The line-up of six dour-faced men, all Xi allies, was split with the 64-year-old Xi standing center-stage. He was the only one smiling. No wonder. Unlike previous “collective leadership” announcements since Chairman Mao died in 1976, the new arrangement sets

Nearly two-in-three Americans now support the legalization of marijuana, a four percent jump in just one year and the largest support Gallup has found in almost a half-century of polling. Marijuana is still illegal under federal law. But with more states approving legalization in each election season, about 20 percent of Americans now live where marijuana use is legal. The newest poll [Snip] found that 64 percent of them now support marijuana legalization. When Gallup first asked the question in 1969, only 12 percent did. Support rose to 28 percent in 1978, then held generally steady in the mid-20-percent range

Even more than 40 years later, picturing Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland in “Start the Revolution Without Me” sets me laughing. At a royal masquerade ball around the French Revolution, decorously dancing couples, one after another, pass around conspiratorial notes to “Kill the Duke,” “Kill the Duchess,” “Kill the Queen.” Until finally, the note “Kill Everybody.” It’s much less funny, but that’s what the Republican Party seems bent on doing this fall, committing communal suicide to mark its historic election successes of recent years.

The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state.

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct.
