New York Times: Demonizing Sgt. Bergdah

lThe New York Times via the Salt Lake Tribune ^ | Friday, June 6, 2014 | EditorialPosted on 6/7/2014, 9:03:45 AM by kristinnFour months ago, Sen. John McCain said he would support the exchange of five hard-core Taliban leaders for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.”I would support ways of bringing him home,” he told CNN, “and if exchange was one of them I think that would be something I think we should seriously consider.

“But the instant the Obama administration actually made that trade, McCain, as he has so often in the past…SNIPThough we criticized the administration for ignoring the law in not informing Congress of the transfer of the Taliban detainees 30 days in advance, leave it to Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and other hyperventilators to claim that continued release of prisoners from Guantánamo without prior notice is now considered an impeachable offense, a ludicrous leap.SNIPThis duck-and-cover response is the result of the outrageous demonization of Bergdahl in the absence of actual facts. Republican operatives have arranged for soldiers in his unit to tell reporters that he was a deserter who cost the lives of several soldiers searching for him.

In fact, a review of casualty reports by Charlie Savage and Andrew Lehren of The New York Times showed there is no clear link between any military deaths and the search.SNIPAnd a classified military report shows that Bergdahl had walked away from assigned areas at least twice before and had returned, according to a report in The New York Times on Thursday.

Threatened Republican Impeachment of Obama a Useless Joke…

By Judi McLeod

Thursday, June 5, 2014

Given that five violent Taliban terrorists in the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl tradeoff are now on the loose, being in Qatar is on the loose, it’s got to be the biggest joke of all time that Republican lawmakers would call for President Barack Obama’s impeachment—”if he released more prisoners from Guantanamo Bay”.

What is now called the Tea Party began in 2007 as a loosely-organized yet highly-motivated grassroots support effort for Congressman Ron Paul‘s bid for the White House. Since those early days, a lot has happened to the Tea Party.

WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — The Senate approved a bill Monday to bar a former hostage-taker tapped to be Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States.

By voice vote, Republicans and Democrats united behind the legislation sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that reflected congressional animosity toward Tehran and its selection of Hamid Aboutalebi. Iran’s envoy choice was a member of a Muslim student group that held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.

The New York Times story, “President Gains McCain’s Backing on Syria Attack,” is predictable, considering that Obama had invited Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to the White House for the specific purpose of supporting his proposed military strike on Syria.

Obama has also asked the same two senators to travel to Egypt to undermine the military leaders who overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood government there.

 

What is lacking from the media coverage is any recognition that the inevitable result, according to congressional testimony, will be the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood and associated terrorist groups in Syria, and the genocide of the remaining Christians there.

Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lindsey Graham, Sen. Bob Corker On Friday, CNN reported Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said a “speedy response” may be needed to thwart another strike if claims of Syria’s use of chemical weapons prove true.”

HEIL OBAMA! HEIL McCAIN! HEIL FASCISM!

 

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) wholeheartedly approves of the federal government’s massive Orwellian domestic spying initiative. Not only that, Graham wants to hunt down the heroic contractor who exposed this unprecedented intrusion on liberty and prosecute him for treason.

 

Or at least he wants other people to do that … obviously Graham isn’t going to do it himself.

Only a few weeks ago, Graham breathlessly claimed that any effort to include gay binational couples in the immigration bill would cause him to withdraw his support for the legislation, effectively killing it.

 

 

 

So Democrats threw gays under the bus, yet again refusing to include our number one immigration priority in the so-called “comprehensive” immigration reform bill in order to appease Republicans.

Some of us at the time had been arguing that the Republicans were bluffing; that the GOP is desperate to get immigration reform passed in order to weaken the lock the Democratic party has on the Latino vote (a population on the rise in terms of its percentage of the electorate). There is no way the GOP is going to risk killing immigration reform for anything. At least not the Senate GOP.

Whether bloggers count as journalists has mostly been a matter of esoterics for reporter types. But as Congress weighs a media shield law in response to the Associated Press/Justice Department subpoena scandal, the question is gaining an urgency that lawmakers are finding hard to ignore as they turn to writing the bill.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., took on the issue—and stumbled.

 

“Who is a journalist is a question we need to ask ourselves,” he said. “Is any blogger out there saying anything—do they deserve First Amendment protection? These are the issues of our times.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The verbal slipup aside (of course bloggers are covered under the Bill of Rights!), Graham’s riffing on constitutional law exposes one of the age-old tensions between journalism as a product and journalism as an activity. What Graham really meant to ask was whether bloggers deserve the specific protections of the First Amendment that are granted to the press. But as the line between blogger and journalist has blurred, a far more relevant challenge is figuring out whether those protections apply to the behavior of finding and passing on (sometimes secret) information, or if they apply only to people with little plastic ID badges to prove their affiliation.

 

In some ways, what this episode really suggests is that it might be time to retire the word “blogger” as an artifact of the aughts.

McCain Sneaks Across Syria Border, Joins Al-Qaeda | Veterans Today

Sen. John McCain, chewing on the raw heart of a Syrian soldier

by Kevin Barrett

According to unconfirmed reports, former Republican presidential candidate and current Senator John McCain has joined al-Qaeda.

Informed sources report that McCain slipped across the Syrian border last night and joined the al-Nusra front, an Israeli-supported al-Qaeda affiliate that is waging war against Syria.

 

McCain issued the following statement explaining his actions: “In the name of Yahweh, the benevolent, the merciful, I hereby declare allegiance to Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahiri and to the Zionist entity he represents. I have always wanted to grow a beard, cut off some heads, and devour the raw internal organs of my victims, especially since I had a bad experience in a POW camp, so this represents the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. I am grateful to Sheikh al-Zawahiri, Prime Minister Netanyahu, Adam Gadahn, and the other heroic mujewhideen who have made this possible.”

Only Two Paths Left for The United States

 
Written By Lawrence Sellin  

There is one fact of which Americans can be sure.

The federal government is corrupt to such an extent that only a comprehensive purge of its personnel, a complete revision of its policies and a drastic reduction in its size can prevent its inevitable transition to tyranny.

 

The obvious and despicable lies told by the Obama Administration, defended by the media and repeatedly unchallenged by the Republicans no longer quell the growing outrage of marginalized citizens.

In order to maintain the corrupt status quo, the US government, which is increasingly isolated from the governed, will progressively resort to oppression, lawlessness and unaccountability to the American people.

The Obama Administration’s policy of using the Internal Revenue Service to silence political opponents, thwart press investigations and suppress free speech is a deliberate direct assault on the rights guaranteed under the First Amendment to the Constitution.

The vote was 13-5, with all Democrats, plus disgraceful traitors Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) joining them in handing IMMEDIATE amnesty for 20+ millions illegal aliens, plus full welfare and ObamaCare coverage, with absolutely NO border security triggers.

1.) Penalties. 2.) Back to the end of the line. 3.) Illegals cannot get gov’t handouts (food stamps, etc). I thought that for all these years they weren’t eligible, weren’t receiving them an/or they never did in the first place… 4.) An E-Verify system.

Sen. Rand Paul formally rolled out his 2014 budget blueprint on Friday, offering a combination of tax and spending proposals that he said would balance the federal budget in five years without raising taxes.

 

The freshman Kentucky Republican’s plan reshapes entitlement programs, abolishes four federal agencies and overhauls the federal tax code by establishing a 17-percent flat tax and eliminating taxes on capital gains, dividends and savings.

Rand Paul, the junior senator from Kentucky, filibustered the Senate vote on confirming John Brennan to be CIA director, because he was against the drone war in general and the targeted assassination of American citizens in the US in particular.

He failed. Brennan became CIA director. But his filibuster was called “historic” by Antiwar.com’s Justin Raimondo, who quotes a talk show host at length:

“There is a fear among John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and others who favor an interventionist foreign policy. Think of the neocons. Think of going into Iraq and not just securing Iraq, but building a democracy.

Nation building, if you will. Think of the outbreak of the Arab Spring and the people on our side who thought, ‘Wow, this is wonderful. This is the outbreak of American democracy,’ when it wasn’t.

It was the exact opposite. Rand Paul, they’re asking themselves, is he his father’s Ron Paul son or is he on his own here?

They’re worried that Rand Paul’s diatribe on drones really means that Rand Paul wants to bring the military home and not use it unless we’re attacked, He doesn’t like it being used in an intervention. This is what they fear. And as he succeeds in making a connection with the America people, they’re worried, the neocons are worried that they are being undermined by this.”That was from none other than Rush Limbaugh, who used to call critics of American foreign policy “appeasement”, “anti-American”, “cheese-eating surrender monkey“.

TEL AVIV – Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., may have dropped a bombshell in an interview with Fox News in which he stated that murdered U.S Ambassador Christopher Stevens was in Benghazi to keep weapons caches from falling into the hands of terrorists.

 

Until now, no official explanation for Stevens deployment to Libya has acknowledged any such activity.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, in an extensive interview with Fox News, alleged that the injured survivors of the Benghazi terror attack have been “told to be quiet” and feel they can’t come forward to tell their stories — as he urged the House to subpoena the administration for details if necessary.

Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul’s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn’t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with “lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial.”

Drones Will Target Conservative Americans…

March 13, 2013 Leave a comment

For many of us, Rand Paul’s filibuster was a surreal moment in time, beckoning back to better days when Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was considered a masterpiece of film because it embodied the values of our nation.

 

Today, “violence porn” films like Django Unchained are considered the top of the heap because they, sadly, embody our corrupt and violent society.“Old Bull” Republicans like John McCain and Lindsey Graham thought Rand Paul’s filibuster was stupid and irrelevant.

That it was ridiculous to think that Barack Hussein Obama, who has from almost Day One of his presidency spurned the rule of law—often blathering about “if Congress won’t act, I will”—would drop a hellfire missile on an American sitting in a cafe.But this wasn’t some manufactured issue, as the Left is famous for.

On this weekend’s broadcast of The McLaughlin Group, regular liberal panelist Eleanor Clift accused Senator Rand Paul of trying to “stir a revolt against the U.S. government.”

 

ELEANOR CLIFT: I’m with John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who basically said this was over the top and creating a sense that the government is really just waiting for this opportunity to drop a drone on you. But, I’ll grant you the point. The ACLU put out a statement siding with Rand Paul and this is where the left and the right do meet.

 

There are genuine questions about the drones and he did ask them. But he took it to a dimension which really does raise questions about the — I want to say this gracefully, so maybe I better not say it at all. It raises questions about, you know, what he’s up to. It’s like he’s trying to stir a revolt against the U.S. government.

I asked the president, can you kill an American on American soil, it should have been an easy answer. It’s an easy question. It should have been a resounding, an unequivocal, “No.” The president’s response? He hasn’t killed anyone yet. — Rand Paul

 

I do not believe that question deserves an answer. — Lindsey Graham

 

Mr. Holder’s letter answers Mr. Rand’s question, “Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill Americans not engaged in combat on U.S. soil. The answer to that question is ‘no.’”– Jay Carney

Whatever his ideological leanings, surely Shakespeare would have raised an eyebrow at the political scene Wednesday, if only for the content it would have stirred in his creative mind. Though Rand Paul spearheaded an epic 13-hour filibuster, he didn’t fill that time alone. Fourteen other Senators total offered him a respite along with comradely, thought-provoking questions, and humor, to boot.

Some comments, or technically questions, were in part to pass the time, but many managed to raise spirits by quoting movies, musicians, famous authors, or regular supporters. Sens. Cruz, Scott, and Flake are all freshmen.

Traditionally, their first speech on the Senate floor would have been on something of personal importance, but instead they helped Rand further his filibuster. Since cell phones are banned on the floor, Cruz offered to read series of Tweets so Paul could see what was going on in the outside world — the “Twitterverse” — encouraging Paul (and supporters).

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul did something on Wednesday that hasn’t happened in the Republican Party since Obama won the White House in 2008. Senator Paul stood up for what he believed and defended the Constitution during an old fashioned filibuster against what has become known to most conservatives as a quasi-tyrannical socialist Obama regime.

Senator Paul’s filibuster was an attempt to set a narrative within the context of the constitutionality of the Obama regimes domestic drone policy.

Rand PaulThe big news of the day seems to be the aftermath of the filibuster held for 13 hours by Senator Rand Paul. He should need no introduction, as his father is former Representative Ron Paul. He shares some of his father’s extreme libertarian ideology, but not all. If nothing else, it seems he is more than willing to ask the questions of government that many of our politicians are not willing to ask. That’s why he began the old-school talking filibuster in the first place. He asked a question of Attorney General Eric Holder and not being satisfied with Holder’s quibbling of an answer, took matters into his own hands.

The Gang of Eight Immigration Constituency | Veterans Today

February 4, 2013 3 comments

The illegal immigration invasion has been ongoing for decades. All efforts to shut the door on unrestricted entry are “all hat no cattle”. The notion that it is impossible to secure the territorial borderlines is an insult to every native born citizen.

The dirty policy that is not much of a secret is that the establishment wants an influx of low wageworkers that drives down the cost of labor. The consistent pattern of domestic de-industrialization is a core objective of globalism.

‘When an alien voting bloc begins to dominate American politics, there’s no stopping whatever they want’

 

Could it be that “comprehensive immigration reform” isn’t even needed, because the population of illegals in the United States already has won the fight?

 

 

 

There are experts in the field who suggest President Obama already may have taken action that, essentially, has ended the controversy.

I demand to be arrested for blasphemy. Now.

September 19, 2012 2 comments

I demand to be arrested for blasphemy. Now. Posted by Ann Barnhardt – September 14, AD 2012 1:12 PM MST The Obama regime is going after the people who made the cheesy mohammed movie that the musloids are blaming the riots on.

They are “suggesting” that YouTube “review” the content of the clip of the movie they have posted, and are also now looking to jail one of the filmmakers. In addition, the Obama propaganda arm operating as the L.A. Times has posted pictures and explicit location descriptions of the home of one of the filmmakers, clearly an effort to intimidate the filmmakers and to pass tactical intel to the muslim brotherhood – which is why you always publicize your personal info right off the bat like I did.

In doing so you claim a massive tactical advantage and utterly deprive the enemy of his MAIN WEAPON, which is intimidation and fear. Ladies and gentlemen, what you are witnessing is the establishment of the Sharia, specifically “islamic blasphemy” laws, right here in what used to be called the United States of America.

Well, I have a little something to say about all of this.

I have done what many consider to be the most hard-core, serious koran burning to date. I bookmarked the filthy damn thing with strips of raw bacon, and then I burned the satanic screed page by page after reading the demonic filth therein contained.

What many of you may not know is that very soon after my koran burning went viral, a group of Coptic Christians in Egypt translated it – every word – subtitled it in Arabic, and then posted that version on YouTube. How humbling. Please understand that there is a very good chance that some of the Copts involved in that effort have since been killed in the Christian genocide that has been raging in Egypt, and all throughout the musloid-infected world since early 2011.

While my original version on my YouTube channel has just under 200,000 views as of this writing, that is a pittance compared to the Arabic subtitled version, posted on the YouTube Channel “AnnThankYou”, which has 665,000 views. Most of those views are of course in Egypt, the Middle East and North Africa. Therefore, if this nation is now under the Sharia, I DEMAND to be arrested for not only “blasphemy” but also as an accessory to murder as recommended by both Mike Barnicle and Donny Deutsch on MSNBC earlier this week. THAT CITATION HERE.

Any time you bastards want to get real about this, I’m your flippin’ huckleberry. Come and get me, and then WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

By Wes Vernon

It has been a century since Woodrow Wilson reportedly opined that young boys should grow up to be as unlike their fathers as possible. Whether he worded it exactly that way, our 28th president surely pursued the goal, both as educator and as politician.

Not that his era was the first to witness a challenge to parents’ prerogative. However, the early 20th century “progressive movement” (of which Wilson was a part) did offer up the most open manifestation of that attitude in American official circles up to that moment in history.

Widow of Marine Corps Launches Campaign to Prove Her Husband Was Murdered | Veterans Today

February 7, 2012 Leave a comment

Military widows join forces to raise awareness of non-hostile military deaths.

(EASLEY, SC) – Kimberly Stahlman, widow of Colonel USMC, is fighting to prove that her husband did not commit suicide but was instead murdered. However, the Marine Corps refuses to help.

As part of this fight she partnered with Tracy Shue, widow of Colonel Philip Shue USAF and writer/military family advocate Cilla McCain and drafted a Bill of Rights for Bereaved Military Families.

To bring this campaign to the public, they have started a petition to Congress and launched MilitaryHomicide.org as a resource for other military families facing the same circumstances.

Marine Corps Colonel Michael Stahlman was an investigating officer in the case against Lt. Andrew Grayson, an intelligence officer charged with making false statements, attempting fraudulent discharge, and obstructing justice, in connection to the deaths of 24 Iraqi civilians in the city of Haditha.

Colonel Stahlman was vocal in his disappointment with the manner in which the entire Haditha matter was handled by the Marine Corps hierarchy and recommended that charges against Grayson be dropped. The recommendation was rejected by prosecutors and Grayson eventually was cleared of all charges in June 2008.
