Bergdahl Blunder

Posted by Troy on 4th June 2014 in Current Events

Do these people think ANYTHING through?  As best I can tell, President Obama is inept at EVERYTHING.  Maybe this is because he is just a community organizer, at heart.  He has never had any sort of executive responsibilities or powers.  Maybe he doesn’t understand the position.  Maybe he is used to the sell.  Rally the people.  Call them forth.  Get the photo op, and let the unwashed masses conquer.

Did they not ask anything about Bergdahl when they arranged this?  Did they just think, ‘We’ll say ‘we saved an American hero!’ and people will cheer for us.  They won’t care how we got him home as long as we got them home, and our voter base will love it as it gets more people out of Gitmo.”

What really happened is that they are getting killed by the move because:

1 – We negotiated with terrorists for Bergdahl’s release.  Just on principal, that’s bad.  However, it also gives terrorists even more incentive to kidnap Americans.  Good going, dipstick.

2 – We gave up 5 men for this guy.  I don’t buy the “Anything to get our man home,” sacred duty, bullshit.  If we had Osama bin Laden in jail right now, and the only way to save Bergdahl’s life is to release bin Laden, do you think we would?  We’d let him die, and we should.  It is a soldier’s duty to die for his country to protect our country.  Releasing one soldier at the risk of killing many other Americans defeats the whole purpose we are over there.  So we gave up 5 men (of the enemy’s choosing) for this guy.  That’s a BAD deal.  You suck at negotiations.  If you are going to negotiate with terrorists, at LEAST make a good deal!

3 – All of Bergdahl’s brothers-in-arms say he was a deserter at best and a flat traitor at worst.  If you have ever met people in the military, they are very loyal to their brothers-in-arms (even the assholes).  They would not say such things unless they believed it completely.  Sooooo yeah…

4 – Add into this that Bergdahl’s father shows up, speaking Arabic, quoting the Koran, and sporting a Muslim beard…  I’m sure plenty of Muslims are serving and have served our military faithfully.  This is a special case where one of our troops may have gone traitor on us.  Him being Muslim does make that more likely, doesn’t it?

5 – President Obama broke the law in how this deal went down.  That is straight up true.  It cannot be denied.

6 – There are some real Constitutional questions given number 5 and the particulars of this case…

7 – We did all of this to get back someone that renounced his US citizenship?

So, seriously…do they ever ask any follow-up questions?  Was this all a ploy to get us to stop talking about the VA scandal/show that he does care about “the troops?”  Is he just inept?  What is it?  I never can tell if he’s Machiavellian or just plain dumb…

Long Live the Constitution!

Hillary Clinton – Imperialist (What You Deserve)

Posted by Troy on 3rd June 2014 in Current Events, Political

Hillary is just another imperialist in a long line of imperialists.  I think many would say that George W. Bush was an imperialist president, but at least he didn’t demand that you not question him.  I cannot recall a single instance when he demanded detractors to sit down and shut up, but Obama has, repeatedly.  Not only that, but President Obama has flaunted the law.  He has ignored laws.  He has CHANGED laws.  He had flatly ignored Constitutional restraints.  And all the worse, he and his supporters DEMAND that you not question him.  They label any questioning of this president as racist or treacherous or un-American.

Hillary Clinton falls into this mold as well.  She has come out saying we “should not second guess” Obama’s hard decision on the swap for Bergdahl.  Like hell!  This country is founded upon questioning our leaders.  Any leader that demands not to be questioned is either corrupt or inept.  We had a president 1) make a swap of 5 known terrorists (as chosen BY terrorists) for 1 soldier of questionable merit and 2) ignored a law that would require the president get Congressional approval for such a swap.  If you can’t question this, what the hell can you question?  This is the president that has said that he has the power and right to drone strike you without due process of law!

If you vote for Hillary Clinton, you vote for an imperialist that believes that you, the unwashed masses, do not have the intelligence to decide what is in your own best interest.  Imperialists exist on both sides of the political fence; see Newt Gingrich and Chris Christie if you don’t believe me.

Left or Right, we need to pick lovers of liberty and those politicians that believe that the American people are capable of knowing the truth and making rational decisions, not politicians that believe we are stupid and must be mislead for our own good.

Long Live the Constitution!
