BERGDAHL “THE DESERTER” PLEADS GUILTY

Fort Bragg, North Carolina (CNN)US Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could spend the rest of his life behind bars after he pleaded guilty Monday to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

Fort Bragg, North Carolina (CNN)US Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could spend the rest of his life behind bars after he pleaded guilty Monday to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

Bergdahl disappeared from his base in Afghanistan in June 2009 and was held in captivity by the Taliban until May 2014.
“I left my observation post on my own,” Bergdahl told a judge Monday. “I understand leaving was against the law.”

Bergdahl, the army deserter whose parents were invited to the White House by President Obama. How disgusting was that?

Observers wondered for months if Bergdahl would be charged with desertion after the deal brokered by the U.S. to bring him home. He was — but he was also charged with misbehavior before the enemy, a much rarer offense that carries a stiffer potential penalty in this case.

“I’ve never seen it charged,” Walter Huffman, a retired major general who served as the Army’s top lawyer, said of the misbehavior charge. “It’s not something you find in common everyday practice in the military.”

The Obama administration has been criticized both for agreeing to release five Taliban operatives from the Guantanamo Bay prison and for heralding Bergdahl’s return to the U.S. with an announcement in the White House Rose Garden. The administration stood by the way it secured his release even after the charges were announced.

TRIPPED UP WITH ANOTHER LAME EXCUSE – HILLARY CLINTON WIPES THE FLOOR CLEAN

Hillary Clinton stumbled onto a British Teletube talk show yesterday wearing a boot on her right foot. What happened? As one host called out Clinton for missing an interview, her spokesman initially said she “twisted her ankle.” He tweeted a picture of Clinton wearing a special boot during a separate appearance on the BBC’s “Graham Norton Show.”

But in that appearance, Clinton said she actually broke her toe — after apparently running down the stairs in heels and falling backward.

The status of Clinton’s foot was the subject of much speculation in the British media world all day. She had been slated for interviews with multiple British news programs, including BBC “Woman’s Hour” and ITV’s “This Morning.”

But according to a Snapchat from “This Morning” host Philip Schofield, Clinton cancelled. “Supposed to be interviewing Hillary Clinton…but she’s fallen over and hurt her foot!! Gutted,” Schofield posted to Snapchat, complete with a ‘crying face’ emoji and a picture of her book “What Happened” sitting by itself on a couch.

Once again a pattern emerges; Hillary Clinton has “the foot in the mouth disease.” Running down stairs with high heels! Who will ever believe such a storyImage result for hillary clinton almost falls

Click here for one more stumbling and most humiliating Hillary story. After all the lame excuses America knows Hillary’s problem is Hillary. By the way she is pushing the most deceitful, conceited book of all time in Britain because no one in America will fork over the money buy it. PATHETIC!

As it was on the  night of November 8, 2016, Hillary Clinton has fallen flat on her face.

Please call in the clowns.  LOCK HER UP – JAIL THE BIRD

“A COWARDLY ATTACK” 189 DEAD

Mogadishu, Somalia was the scene of a cowardly attack by al-Shabab killing 189 and injuring more than 200. “Such cowardly attacks reinvigorate the commitment of the United States to assist our Somali and African Union partners to combat the scourge of terrorism,” the U.S. mission to Somalia said in a statement. Overnight, rescue workers with torch lights searched for any survivors trapped under the rubble of the Safari Hotel, which was largely destroyed. The hotel is close to Somalia’s foreign ministry. The blast blew off metal gates and blast walls erected outside the hotel.

A RELIGION OF PEACE

THEY FOUND ‘EM – “A CASE FOR OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE”

Democrats responding to court order to produced documents that previously disappeared always come up with the lame excuse to blame it on someone else or they put forth ” they don’t remember because of the mind eraser drugs they consume.” Take you back to Hillary’s emails. “We handed them all over, but suddenly after a year-long investigation, the FBI recovered more than 17,000 emails that had been deleted or otherwise not turned over to the State Department, and many of them were work-related, Might as well use invisible ink or disappearing paper. “Like wipe it with a cloth.” That was a Hillary’s answer pertaining to the missing emails.  Advocating for Clinton Jame Comey counters that “deleted some [emails] over time as an ordinary user would.”

Lois Lerner and the IRS said emails and paper trails did not exist. Months or was it years later, the Koskinen guy was forced to produce them by a federal judge. 

But conservatives are intent on exploring Mr. Koskinen’s actions after the IRS was ordered to preserve and turn over documents related to targeting of tea party groups — and particularly emails from former senior executive Lois G. Lerner.  Mr. Koskinen’s accusers say he failed to comply with a congressional subpoena on those documents, and instead allowed backup tapes of the emails to be destroyed.

He also said his agency was unable to find the backups of some of Ms. Lerner’s emails — but the IRS’ own internal auditor was able to discover thousands of them with little effort. The internal auditor concluded that the agency erased 422 backup tapes that should have been protected by the subpoena.

Magicians, liars and clowns under the Democratic tent have saturated the deep state to such an extent we will never know the full truth; all of them cover each others asses. This bring us to another lying Democrat, Loretta Lynch.

The chief law enforcement officer under Obama, a lawyer sworn to tell the truth, lied like a five year old kid with his hand in the cookie jar. The tarmac meeting with Slippery Willie. We often wonder what type of gun he carried on board Lynch’s plane.

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch said Friday that the FBI has uncovered 30 pages of documents related to the controversial 2016 tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

The newly uncovered documents will be sent to Judicial Watch by the end of November in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, a spokesman for the group told Fox News.

The tarmac meeting fueled Republican complaints at the time that Lynch had improperly met with the husband of an investigation subject, just before the probe into Hillary Clinton’s personal email use was completed with no charges filed.

Fired FBI Director James Comey, in Senate testimony in June, described that tarmac meeting as problematic.

CUP IT UP AMERICA

AS REPORTED BY FOX NEWS    

Fox News Channel logo.svg

An Arizona restaurant was forced to close its doors indefinitely this week after a politically charged Facebook post the eatery’s owners wrote prompted mass criticism from social media users.

Christopher Smith and Jay Warren, the owners of Cup it Up American Grill in Tucson, posted a st atement on the restaurant’s social media page last week with a list of things the two support and resent, including the president kneeling for the anthem and late night hosts, Vice News reported.

The post stated: “We believe in and support 100% in the following: OUR President, Always Standing for the National Anthem, repealing Obama Care…”

TRUMP TO DEMOCRATS “DO YOU LIKE EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE NOW?”

The old saying, “what goes around comes around” has suddenly bit the Democrats and their cohorts in the butt. Democrat governors and their attorney generals have gone to court over Trump’s executive order halting subsidies to insurance companies; these subsidies lower the premium cost to those who purchase health insurance through exchanges. The subsidies are illegal; the courts have ruled on that. No appropriation by congress to allow the government legally to make these payments exists. But this didn’t matter to Obama who violated the law. About 6 million Americans benefit from the subsidies.

Trump weighed in six months ago, “I’ve been saying for the last year and a half that the best thing we can do politically speaking is let Obamacare explode,” Trump said. “It is exploding right now.”

Experts said the ACA wasn’t “exploding,” but that it needed fixes to help incentivize insurers to stay in marketplaces.

But now, six months later, Obamacare may actually be on the road to “exploding” – catalyzed by an accelerant poured over it by President Trump.

This decision has fired up the mouths of Pelosi and Up-Chuck Schumer who are fiercely blowing smoke into the wind and some other place. It was OK for Obama to issue numerous executive orders when he felt necessary; the executive order was Obama’s prime legislative weapon. If congress didn’t pass the law, he “the anointed one” would get it done; for instance the dreamers putsch. So he went E.O.

Now the shoe is on the other foot.  The Democrats think they have a winning hand; yeah right – didn’t they think that on November 8, 2016? Please bring in the clowns.

The White House argued the subsidies are illegal, because they are not appropriated by Congress. House Republicans sued the Obama administration hoping to stop the payments. As noted above the court ruled the payments to be illegal.

That’s not all the Trump administration has done that could pull the rug out from under the ACA — it has also shortened the sign-up period for health care; closed the federal exchange on Sundays; and cut the budget for marketing efforts, including ending advertising to urge sign ups.

Don’t be fooled by biased opinions and sleazy editorials, Trump has the  winning hand, even if the Republicans balk and the Democrats look to the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip. The bottom line is this, the Democrats won’t negotiate – their feeble effort to blame Trump and the Republicans will go nowhere but up in ashes like the hundreds of homes in Santa Rosa.

If the government shuts down won’t have the slightest effect on most Americans, in fact this will be a good thing. They realize that a bloated government is not too big to fail. GO TRUMP

PUERTO RICO – THANKS MARIA FOR EXPOSING THE WELFARE ISLAND

Who’s to Blame for the Mess in Puerto Rico?

American Renaissance

Alex Witoslawski, American Renaissance, October 4, 2017

Not Donald Trump.

Puerto Ricans are blaming President Trump for the fact that two weeks after Hurricane Maria, their island is still a mess: power outages, flooding, fuel shortages, spotty cell service, washed out bridges, roads blocked by fallen trees. But who is really to blame for the island’s paralysis?

Consider this: Puerto Rico has a population of only 3.4 million but their elected government has run up a debt of over $70 billion and pension obligations of $50 billion. That’s more than $35,294 per resident and over 100 percent of GDP. Puerto Rico has already defaultedon a $58 million bond payment in 2016, due to its already-high taxes and unwillingness to cut government spending. It fell into crushing debt despite the $21 billion annually the island receives in aid from the United States, much of it spent on welfare programs such as Head Start, public housing, and food stamps. That’s over $6,000 per capita in federal welfare that the islanders consume. And due to the special status of the island, Puerto Ricans do not even pay federal income tax.

Borrowing and US handouts sustained the welfare habits of the people, but Puerto Rico left its infrastructure embarrassingly outdated. According to the Los Angeles Times, Puerto Rico’s electrical grid is so starved of physical and human capital that it suffers from power outages four-to-five times the average—even in good weather. Puerto Rico also failed to invest in infrastructure to protect against flooding. The island has few floodwalls and dangerously weak dams—a dam on the island cracked following the hurricane, forcing the evacuation of more than 70,000 people.

These problems were foreseeable and preventable, but liberals and Puerto Rican officials are blaming Donald Trump. Perhaps he is being too nice. Puerto Rico created its own problems; why should we be on the hook for them?

After acquisition by the United States following the Spanish-American War in 1898, the island’s residents never integrated with Americans culturally, linguistically, or racially. Puerto Ricans are culturally Hispanic, racially a mix of Spanish colonists, African slaves and Taino natives, and most of them don’t speak any English. They may technically be United States citizens but they share little common history or ancestry with Americans and are clearly a nation that developed separately from our own. And what could indicate a clearer sense of alienation from the United States than the fact that Puerto Rico has its own Olympic team?

Puerto Ricans, meanwhile, have many gripes with what they perceive as their American overlords. For example, even before this latest hurricane-induced crisis, a major problem for Puerto Rico was their inability to conduct trade independently. According to U.S. law, goods must travel between Puerto Rican and mainland American ports on American-made vessels before they are exported or imported. This weakens Puerto Rico’s economy.

The best solution would be to let Puerto Rico become an independent country, free to make its own decisions and responsible for its own problems. This could be done amicably and generously. Since we pay the island tens of billions of dollars every year in welfare payments, we could easily pay off their debt and give them post-hurricane humanitarian aid as incentives to independence.

We could also offer remigration cash incentives for Puerto Ricans living in America who are willing to give up their U.S. citizenship and move to the island. This would not only be an opportunity for the Puerto Rican diaspora in the United States to reunite with their people, but also a great way to reverse the brain-drain. Over the past century, many of the more intelligent and hard-working Puerto Ricans moved to the mainland for better opportunities. The 2010 U.S. Census counted the number of Puerto Ricans living in America at 4.6 million, making it America’s second-largest Hispanic group after Mexicans. This represents a tremendous loss in cultural, economic, and human capital for the island.

Finally, we could offer military protection and economic advice for a couple decades. Chile took economic advice from free-market economists from the University of Chicago and the economy boomed. With the right advice and incentives, Puerto Rico could experience a similar economic rebound.

Separation would come with an expensive up-front price tag for us, but it would save Americans money in the long run and would give Puerto Rico full control over its culture and destiny.

OBAMA’S ONCE INVISIBLE ARMY TAKES TO THE STREETS

There is no need to rehash Obama’s past comments concerning White attacks against Blacks. Beside Eric Holder, then the attorney general, who failed to indict “The New Black Panther Party for harassing voters at a polling station. Obama, weighed in time and time again with his biased comments which were surreptitiously meant to inflame the Black community. The Trayvon Martin incident proved to be the highlight of Obama’s inflammatory rhetoric.

On the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, United States, George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African American high school student. Zimmerman, a 28-year-old mixed race Hispanic man, was the neighborhood watch coordinator for his gated community where Martin was visiting his relatives at the time of the shooting. Zimmerman shot Martin, who was unarmed, during an altercation between the two.

Zimmerman was charged with Martin’s murder but acquitted at trial on self-defense grounds. The incident was reviewed by the Department of Justice for potential civil rights violations, but no additional charges were filed, citing insufficient evidence.

Obama’s comments on the incident: “You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son.  Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.  And when you think about why, in the African American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.

There are very few African American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store.  That includes me.  There are very few African American men who haven’t had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars.  That happens to me — at least before I was a senator.  There are very few African Americans who haven’t had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off.  That happens often.”

Running through Obama’s comments one sees the innuendo. This is a strategy that he employs in order to lessen the impact of his own internal biases and hate for America. The double speak is not easy to digest for the true patriot because of the hidden racist script which brings up the race card time and time again. This is what Holder and Obama set out to do. Empower the Black Community with words that turn into action.

Note that the majority of Blacks, if they had their say, do not agree with Obama. But they are prohibited from speaking out for fear of retribution. America today has seen the evolution of the Black Community into the main stream. Those who did not evolve into the mainstream way of thinking and resorted to violence, drugs and delinquency are a literal Black eye on those who succeeded in America. Detroit, the quintessential example, the place where 700,000 individuals moved from the motor city to the suburbs; most of them Black. They fled the sewer pit of drugs, violence and gangbangers. Note that the Democrats still treat the Blacks as if they were slaves picking cotton and cane.

Like Antifa, Black extremists are now a growing threat. They to have been impregnated with the socialist virus; an incurable disease know to be the worst of all. The Antifa community resorts to violence in all respects; reminiscent of the Puerto Rican Nationalist bombers seeking statehood.

Four men were killed and 43 persons were injured on January 25, 1975 when a dynamite powered fragmentation bomb, reportedly planted by an underground Puerto Rican group, exploded and spewed nails and other shrapnel through historic Fraunces Tavern and an exclusive dining club in the Wall Street district.

Deafened by the blast and covered with plaster dust and other debris from fallen walls and ceilings, most of the survivors staggered out to meet other casualties – passersby hurt by flying glass or by the concussion of the explosion.

Even as the dazed and screaming victims, one of them with an arm torn off, were being carried away, the FALN – Fuerzas Armadas de Liberacion Nacional Puertoriquena (Armed Forces of Puerto Rican National Liberation) – telephoned the Associated Press and gloated that one of its agents had planted the explosive device.

Our message is to be aware of the threat we face; underground extremists planning their next step. ISIS is small potatoes compared to the ANTIFA threat. Like the gangs MS-13 has spawned, ANTIFA is slowly recruiting members in all fifty states.

STAND UP FOR THE FLAG

The owner of the Dallas Cowboys, America’s Team, told it like it is. “I pay you – I am the boss.”  Jerry Jones said Sunday any player who disrespects the flag will not play.  We have gone far enough, million dollar football players are bringing political correctness on to the field; using the platform to express their biased opinions. 

“I know this, we cannot … in the NFL in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag,” he said following the Cowboys’ 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers. “We know that there is a serious debate in this country about those issues, but there is no question in my mind that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag. So we’re clear.”

Jones said showing respect for the flag and the anthem is more important to him than any potential issues of team unity.

THE PUERTO RICO AFFAIR CONTINUES

This past week President Trump weighed in on the Puerto Rico debt situation. He said that the debt was worthless. Telling  the truth is hard to digest for bondholders, but it is what it is. For the likes of us, we can’t imagine who or what will ever pay back the billions of debt owed by the citizens of Puerto Rico. For heavens sake they are takers not givers; so debtors, kiss your paper goodbye – you can use it for wallpaper or toilet paper, they may be a better use. Puerto Rico has been mismanaged for years by using other peoples money. Why did they ever lend to them is beyond us. And the bond insurers, what were they thinking; beats us.

The best bet here is move forward, bring in the ‘dozers and level the place. Much of the shanty towns have seen total destruction because of lack of building codes and the building of illegal houses. Would you expect anything less. Farmers have seen their crops devastated by the cane. Suddenly, many Puerto Ricans are having to improvise to get by. Maria’s destruction is expected to worsen both. The island could lose 400,000 residents this year, dropping to 3 million. That will lead to steep revenue losses, further draining Puerto Rico’s ability to pay its obligations.Image result for bulldozer

Don’t forget 40% of their debt is owned by locals. Cancelling the debt will be a double whammy. Moving forward is the only way, but expect the Federal Government to throw more money into the wind. As of now, according to those in the know,  the rebuilding will take years. However, in the end, expect the capitalists to boat in, scoop up properties as a cheap price and then rebuild; making Puerto Rico better than ever.
