Keep Him Away From Me

Keeping Bergdahl front and center in the news may seem counter productive (why rub our nose in it) but since this administration views his release (and the price paid for it) as a smashing success, much like bagging OBL, I suspect we will see no end to the Bergdahl Reunion Tour, I smell a WH beer summit in the offing. But is putting him back on active duty really a smart thing?

Six weeks after

I think I figured out…

The differed between a dangerous and stupid cowboy-esque president, like, say GWB, and any much more enlightened man-of-the-world Nobel Peace prize holders, like, say Obama, and it was not that hard. All it took was the recent Bergdahl incident and things like this. And you know what it is? The leftist love the process and pretense of following the law. Yes, I said “pretense of following the law”, and I meant it.

This whole … Read more

Tell any lie so you can to avoid the problem

That seems to be the strategy of this WH when it comes to the Bergdahl deal. It went from Obama got Bergdahl back and deserves your worship, to it was someone else is responsible now that I am getting hammered for doing this stupid thing, to oh shit!, they are on to us, so lets double back on what we said to deflect the anger. I have no doubt that had the raid to … Read more

Did they really think this through?

Both Hal and Rich have visited the insane deal where the WH released some seriously dangerous people held at Club Gitmo so they could bring home a deserter and traitor. Rich hit it on the head when he pointed out that the WH did this over objections from the military and the intell community, going completely around congress and the law, which is very problematic. And I definitely agree with Hal that they did this … Read more

Lead Or Rope?

Many people wonder what, if anything, the military is going to do about Bergdahl. We know that everyone in his unit, everyone that has direct knowledge about the specifics of his disappearance were ordered to sign non disclosure agreements, a promise to keep their traps shut. But word has gotten out and although we don’t have all the facts (really, in this administration is that even possible?) we know enough to wonder why Bergdahl was … Read more

Boy, Did We Get Bamboozled

We knew he was really sucky at being President, who’d a thought he was equally abysmal at negotiating;

President Barack Obama apparently traded five jailed jihadis held in Guantanamo for one American soldier, despite federal law, which requires Congress to be notified before prisoners are transferred.

Obama used a Rose Garden press event to tout the surprise trade — which he won by making critical, last-minute concessions — while the parents of the freed

Putting A Face On It

Well, the politicians in Washington got what they wanted, Shinseki resigned, they can all pat themselves on the back with a collective ,”See, the system works, this administration does in fact hold people accountable, and heads did roll, now, can we get back to talking about the Redskins?”, thereby washing their hands of the whole affair. Who says life is complicated on The Hill?

So, Shinseki resigned? BFD as far as I’m concerned, since this … Read more

Death panels? What death panels?

As we discover how bad the VA medical rationing scandal under the Obama presidency is and the VA admits at least 23 people died waiting for care (and that number is likely far higher), I am hearing a ton of collectivists defenders of Obamacare trying real hard to distance Obamacare from the way the VA healthcare system was being run. Don’t let that happen. Back before the health rationing problems and the deaths that resulted … Read more

Pussified services and all that.

Man, every time you think that the bullshit PC environment can’t do more damage than it already has to the military services, you get stories like this one, and you realize the sad state of affairs:

Everyone at khaki call thought it was a joke.

But when a chief on the destroyer Jason Dunham told the assembled chiefs and officers that he was going to line up residents in two female berthings and make

Que The Credits

Happy endings don’t just occur in Hollywood or at the drive in with Jennifer the cheerleader, if only all wars were this easy;

My first reaction was ,”Holy smokes, we are still at war, will there ever come a day when our military is not dodging bullets or running over IED’s?”.

Much effort was made here in avoiding engagement with “the child” around. Granted, they got a better view of him than I did, but … Read more
