Obama, Manning, and Wiki-Leaks

Posted by Troy on 17th January 2017 in Current Events, Political

And now the Left has no room to talk about Russia hacking the election.

Since November, all I’ve heard is Russia hacking the election.  Russia hacking the election and giving it to Wiki-leaks.

Now, today, Obama commutes the sentence for Manning from 35 years down to 7.  What did Manning do?  Well, the most favorable position you could take is that he was guilty of espionage.  At worst, he was guilty of treason.

So, back in the day, there was a sizable portion of the Left that called for leniency for Manning.  After Bradley decided to become Chelsea, that increased.

But…then the hacking of 2016 happened!  Hillary lost!!!!!  Wiki-leaks baaaaaad.

Let’s compare the two:

Bradley Manning stole military documents and gave it to a foreign entity to be distributed to anyone with an internet connection–including our enemies.  Personally, I believe that he was a weak-willed person (as further proven by his sex-change operation) that was taken advantage of by Julian Assange, particular after Snowden’s fame as a whistle blower.  Even if the military did something wrong, Manning needed to take that to the press, not a foreign entity.  Of course, no one trusts the media anymore, but back then, that may have been acceptable.  These leaks gave away classified information and put agents at risk.  This, further, put American interests at risk.

Russia hacked the DNC.  What did they find out?  Hillary is out of touch.  Well…we knew that.  She disdains Joe Six-pack.  Well…we knew that.  She’s entitled.  Her team thinks low of Americans.  She sells influence.  At every turn, we knew or suspected everything that “was leaked.”  And they were all TRUE.  They could not deny it.

Manning’s betrayal revealed state secrets to our enemies.  The DNC hacks merely confirmed what many suspected.

So…what’s Obama’s logic?  Hacking personal emails is tantamount to undermining our very democracy, but giving away state secrets is no big deal?  He has lost any credibility on the leaks.

Long Live the Constitution!

Trump Not Prosecuting Hillary

Posted by Troy on 22nd November 2016 in Current Events, Political

This is something that has been troubling me for about a week.

Hillary Clinton broke the law, and she should be punished for it.

That being said, Trump is coming into a country that has been deeply divided.  He has been painted as a fascist.  There are people rioting in the streets.  Intellectuals are offering the concept that the Electoral College should overturn the results of the election.

The most important thing to him and for the country is that we begin to heal and be reunited.  If he goes after Hillary, nothing will get done, and we will remain divided.  That being said, he is basically spitting in the face of all of those who supported him.

If it were me, I would prosecute her.  Never compromise, even in the face of Armageddon.  Right is right.  Wrong is wrong.  However, this is not Trump’s modus operandi.  He is a deal-maker.  As such, I can understand his point of view.  And I will admit that his way is the correct way to bring us back together.  In that regards, I will scowl and turn my back.  As I said of Osama bin Laden: I really don’t care if he is brought to justice.  I know that one day, he will die.  And he will face justice.  Hillary is a 70-year-old who had just had her soul utterly crushed by the election.  Her health is obviously a wreck.  Soon, she shall die, and she shall face the judgement of God for any and all of her offenses.

We MUST reunite as a country.  We MUST remember WHO WE ARE.  We must do these things quickly, or all will be lost.  To that end, I shall let this go.

But he better the hell not put someone on the Supreme Court that won’t uphold the Second Amendment.

Long Live the Constitution!
