Chelsea Manning hopes to become Senate’s first openly transgender disgrace

From The Duffel Blog.

BETHESDA, Md. — Convicted traitor Chelsea Manning has announced the start of her campaign to become the US Senate’s first openly-transgender disgrace, sources confirmed this week.

Manning is also hoping to become the youngest female disgrace of a senator.

“There have been many disgraceful senators,” said political analyst Rob Tembley. “In fact, there are many serving right now. Manning, however, would be the first openly transgender one.”

Manning, best known for leaking classified information to Wikileaks, listed a number of reasons on her campaign website showing why she is qualified to be a disgrace.

A self-described “intelligence expert” after serving three years in the Army, she was reprimanded for publicly describing the interior of a SCIF. Her other military achievements include almost being discharged from boot camp, punching her supervisor in the face, flipping a table after minor corrective counseling, and being awarded the National Defense Service Medal.

In her first campaign ad, Chelsea proclaims “We don’t need more, or better leaders,” a sentiment anyone who wants Chelsea Manning in the senate would agree with.

“We need someone willing to fight,” Manning continues, referring to her inability to fight when her supervisor removed the bolt from her rifle after she was found in a cupboard in the fetal position.

Although the 30-year-old traitor with no advanced education is a historically unqualified candidate, supporters claim her emotional problems and mental instability make her a great fit for the current political climate.

When reached for comment, Manning responded with four emojis and a cartoon photo of herself flashing a peace sign.

The Way It Is

In keeping with my policy, I’m not posting any links to the investigations going on in Congress because there’s really no point. We’ve found what we all knew to be true, that Obama didn’t have a presidential administration, but a criminal enterprise. Using phony information to spy on Trump people, collusion between the White House, FBI, and DOJ to make sure Hillary would never be charged with anything; Lynch announcing she’d abide by whatever decision Comey came to when she was told months earlier what the outcome of the sham investigation would be. Felonies piled on felonies. It’s laughable to think that any investigation will result in any indictments. Even if they were, you’d never get a judge or jury in DC to convict a Democrat. So it’s all bullcrap. Enough said.

DC ‘Made Men’ Like James Clapper Don’t Get Charged For Committing Open Perjury

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper is about to celebrate one of the most important anniversaries of his life. March 13th will be the fifth anniversary of his commission of open perjury before the Senate Intelligence Committee. More importantly, it also happens to be when the statute of limitations runs out — closing any possibility of prosecution for Clapper

Schumer’s shutdown reveals: Democrats will destroy America just to spite Trump
The Schumer shutdown has revealed the totality of the Democrats’ agenda: animosity and amnesty.

When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process.

We already knew the Washington Democrats hated Trump. Now we know they oppose not just the president, but American government, the American people and even the very concept of American citizenship as well.

They call Americans “deplorables” and illegal immigrants “Dreamers.” That tells you everything you need to know about the Democrats’ upside-down world view.

SAG Awards Host Can’t Resist Taking A Shot At Melania Minutes Into The Show

“There has never been a host for this awards show,” Bell said. “First time. First person. First lady. I honestly never thought I would grow up to be the first lady, but you know what, I kind of like it.”

“I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet,” Bell joked early in her speech.

Trump Rejects NBC’s Request for Pre-Super Bowl Interview

CAN’T SAY I BLAME HIM. IT WOULD NOT BE SO MUCH AN INTERVIEW AS AN INTERROGATION. NOT AT ALL LIKE THE HUGGING AND CARESSING OBAMA WAS ALWAYS TREATED TO.

The White House has at present, according to a person familiar with the matter, indicated to NBC News that President Donald Trump will not take part in a recent Super Bowl ritual: a pre-game interview between the commander-in-chief and the news unit of the network hosting the game.

If Trump had agreed to the interview, he probably would have been grilled about his opposition to NFL players protesting when the National Anthem is played before games, as well as about his political policies, Variety says.

When MRC analyzed all evening news coverage of the President in 2017, we found that 87.8 percent of Trump’s coverage on the NBC Nightly News was negative, compared to a mere 12.2 percent that was positive.

Sec. Zinke Will Spend The Government Shutdown Ensuring The WWII Memorial, National Parks, Stay Open

No Barrycades this time. Just one more demonstration of how Obama had no problem hurting people for his political agenda.

In the first hours of the government shutdown, Secretary Zinke was making plans for how to keep America’s public parks open. In the early hours of Saturday morning, Zinke met with public affairs and maintenance staff to run through a plan to keep memorials on the National Mall open. He then spoke with garbagemen who will be picking up trash on the Mall one last time before the city of D.C. takes over for them.

Zinke then got into his car and drove to the WWII memorial to greet visitors and hand out maps and helped with directions. “I spent the morning walking around, giving brochures out,” Zinke said. “I got a lot of thanks from both sides of the aisle. We will not weaponize our public lands.”

Trump Campaign Slams Democrats As ‘Complicit’ In Murders By Illegal Aliens In Explosive New Ad

President Trump’s re-election campaign released a new ad on Saturday slamming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats as “complicit” in future murders committed by illegal immigrants.

The ad featured Luis Bracamontes, an illegal immigrant on trial for killing two police officers who told a judge he only wished he “had killed more of the mother******s.”

Dem street fighting meets match in Trump

For years, Democrats have successfully used government shutdowns to slap wimpy Republicans around and paint them as cold, ineffectual cream puffs who don’t care about the regular people who depend on a functioning government.

Remember the political theater of the 2013 government shutdown, when veterans and little kids were barricaded out of the national monuments and Nancy Pelosi was calling the Republicans legislative arsonists?

That’s not going to work with the bad hombre in the White House — he was born to brawl.

Democrats did their best to fill the news cycle with distracting toxicity leading up to the shutdown we’re in, but it didn’t take. People see it for what it is. Disgraceful political opportunism. Democratic senators don’t oppose much of the spending bill at all, and they pretended there was moral urgency with DACA.

[CtH: Among the MOST pathetic examples was CNN warning us that we could be hit by an UNDETECTED asteroid!  Cuz, you know, if it was detected, we’d be able to do something about it.  Oh wait.   No we couldn’t.  It would still hit us.  We’d just know about it a little sooner.]

Weaponizing the Shutdown 

If a government shuts down in the forest and nobody hears it, that’s the sound of liberty dying. The so-called shutdown is, as noted last week, mostly baloney: Eighty-three percent of the supposedly defunded government is carrying on as usual, impervious to whatever restraints the people’s representatives might wish to impose, and the 800,000 soi-disant “non-essential” workers have been assured that, as soon as the government is once again lawfully funded, they will be paid in full for all the days they’ve had at home.

Trump Calls for ‘Nuclear Option’ if Democrats Continue Shutdown

By invoking the “nuclear option,” Senate Republicans would change the rules of the Senate so that it would only take a 51-vote majority to pass a bill and it would no longer be required to get 60 votes to end debate on it.

“The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked,” Trump said in the tweet. “If the stalemate continues, Republicans should to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s”

Making California Mexico Again

“No barriers between California and Mexico” for leftist Democrats.

In this view, Mexicans who violate U.S. immigration law are only entering their own country and not illegal in any sense. They are therefore entitled to education, medical care, drivers’ licenses, welfare, and in-state college tuition. False-documented illegals also vote in federal, state and local elections, the imported electorate of California’s ruling class Democrats. California secretary of state Alex Padilla conveniently refuses to reveal voter information and will not cooperate with federal probes of voter fraud.

[CtH: Funny thing how it doesn’t work the other way.  Americans who enter Mexico illegally go to jail.]

Trump HHS Announces “New Conscience and Religious Freedom Division”
HHS moves from “pro-life antagonist to advocate.”

During his presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump repeatedly spoke of his intent to support life should he be elected. This week he took another huge step in fulfilling this promise with his HHS’s announcement of a new conscience and religious freedom division.

Additionally, the HHS has announced that it will roll back another Obama era policy: HHS will no longer freeze out states that seek to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. Last year, the president signed a bill allowing states to defund Planned Parenthood.

Former Military Lawyers: Chelsea Manning Subject To Prosecution For Running For Office

While Manning’s felony conviction does not appear to automatically disqualify a run for office, his active-duty status presents a much more troubling issue. Such a status, in other words, has enormous implications for engaging in any kind of political activity, especially a Senate run.

That paragraph is punitive and violation of it subjects her to courts-martial for violation of a lawful order or regulation under Article 92,” Brenner-Beck told TheDCNF. “Her activities campaigning for herself and fundraising for herself may also violate other provisions of the DoD Directive, themselves separately punishable under the UCMJ, art. 92.”

On SNL, it dawns on the left that its tantrum over Trump is falling flat

I watched the opening segment last night, which was a mirthless five-minute take attempting to convince us President Trump was dumb. Later on in the program, at the half-hour mark, the second political skit, led by actress and guest host Jessica Chastain was more interesting.

Using the format of a cheesy game show with a panel of three contestants, Chastain asked her contenders in the five-minute segment whether this or that action of President Trump’s “matters anymore.”

The skit moves on to ever more outrageous scenarios, none of which “matter anymore” to highlight that the public doesn’t give a darn about the media’s frenzy at President Trump’s tweets or its slambook-style leaks of his offhand supposed remarks. In the course of the drama, Chastain gets more and more wound up at how Trump gets away with whatever it is the left says he gets away with and near the end of the skit swigs a booze bottle to drown her exasperated sorrows as the contestants try to comfort her.

When They’re Out of Power They’re Just Funny

Being a Democrat means you don’t need a conscience or a moral compass. You cater to the ignorant, the lazy, and the morally reprehensible. You blatantly lie to them. Most of them know it and they don’t care. They are motivated by greed,ignorance, and hate. You stand for nothing except enriching yourself at the expense of the the law-abiding people of this country who work and pay the taxes you buy votes with.

When they’re in power, like the dark days of the Obama reign of terror, they specialize in spreading misery to all quarters. Times like these, when they’re relegated to comic relief, they can display a particular pathos born of desperation to be relevant. They will return to the throne one day, but until then they’re just fun to watch.

Frederica Wilson Joins Dems In Boycotting Trump’s State Of The Union Address

“For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement. “I have no doubt that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises, and lies.”

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/15/another-black-member-of-congress-is-protesting-trumps-state-of-the-union/

The collective IQ at the SOTU just skyrocketed

As for Frederica Wilson, the gobs of attention she got for exploiting the wife of a fallen soldier has faded away – an easily forgotten embarrassing memory.

So naturally she thinks her next ticket to cable news is announcing she too will skip Trump’s SOTU address.

Black unemployment is at an all-time low – falling to below 7% for the first time ever.  And the primary beneficiaries of President Trump stemming the flow of unskilled illegal aliens into the country are black Americans.  Now you would think that Frederica, John and Maxine would be more focused on the constituents in their districts than flooding the country will unskilled, cheap labor.  But for the Democrat Party, all that matters are illegal aliens.

American blacks need to understand that they have been cast aside.  Parasites suck the life out of a host then move on.  And the Democrat parasites in Congress have drained all advantage out of the black vote. Now they’ve moved on to illegals.

Since they have nothing to show for their endless years in Congress, all they have left is showboating and demagoguery.  So they put on petty displays for attention and hurl slanderous attacks at the President — all to mask their years and years of inaction.
So go ahead, stay home, you useless blobs of irrelevance.

Dems ‘Terrified’ of Trump Cracking Black Vote, Civil Rights Leader Says

With infamous race card losing its potency, guests on ‘The Laura Ingraham Show’ say president’s program threatens old alliances.

“[Democrats] are terrified that this president gets somewhere north of 10 to 15 percent of the black vote,” said Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) (pictured above right, in red tie, in the image on this page). “And they’re terrified because, if that happens, then it is first of all, mathematically, electorally impossible for a Democrat to win.”

Innis added, “But more than that, it is because they are so invested in having a monopoly of the black vote, and that monopoly is based on blacks as forever seeing themselves as victims, forever seeing themselves as victims of racism, of economic depravity of the white man.”

The battle to shut down Obama’s presidential center

What initially started out as a library has morphed into a 20-acre private “center,” and some environmentalists and historians are unhappy with the Obama Foundation’s plans to swoop in and take over a national historic place.

The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that’s no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans.

Surprise: The States That Hemorrhaged Population Fastest in 2017 Were…

Some of the politicians objecting most loudly to the GOP tax reform law were Democrats from high tax blue states, whose constituents for years have been somewhat insulated from their exorbitant state and local tax bills via an ability to write them off as a federal tax deduction.  Under the new law, those who itemize (a small fraction of taxpayers to begin with) will only be able to deduct up to $10,000 in SALT-related (property tax) expenses. This will expose some of them, especially those in upper-income brackets, to the true costs of living in tax happy jurisdictions. These people make up the lion’s share the roughly five percent of taxpayers who stand to see a net tax increase next year — whereas 80 percent of all taxpayers, and 91 percent of middle class earners will get a cut.

US Military Members Receive Biggest Pay Bump Since 2010

Military members will see their paychecks rise by the largest percent increase since 2010 this week.

At the end of December, President Donald Trump, by way of executive order, mandated a 2.4% pay hike for uniformed service members and a 1.9% raise for federal workers. The Trump administration’s initial budget blueprint called for a 2.1% pay increase, while the House and Senate suggested the 2.4% figure, which was eventually adopted by the president.

Tom Cotton: ‘Let’s See How’ Shutting Down Government Over DACA Amnesty ‘Works Out for’ Democrats

Cotton, however, warned that if Democrats were to shut down the government over amnesty, it could have a detrimental impact on their re-election efforts in states like Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana.

Towards the end of 2017, Democrats in the House and Senate made similar threats that they would shut down the federal government over an amnesty for illegal aliens. But the left-wing party quickly backed off the plan when public opinion polls showed Americans were increasingly opposed to a shutdown over a year-end amnesty that would further suppress the wages of American workers.

Law-Abiding American Families Are the Victims in the Dreamers Debacle

Democrats would have us believe removing these people is inhumane.  What’s inhumane is ignoring laws we don’t like and vigorously enforcing those that we do.  It’s a tragedy of justice, and it creates an operational double standard that is destroying our nation while incentivizing bad actors from around the world to take advantage of us.

Trump Administration Plans To Help States Implement Work Requirements for Medicaid

Kentucky has just received approval from the Trump administration to implement their work requirements, which mirror their requirements for food stamps. There are 650,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in Kentucky. Many of these individuals do not have any earned income and do not work at all. Under the new requirements, these beneficiaries will have to either work, train, or volunteer for 20 hours a week in order to receive benefits.

According to research from the Foundation for Government Accountability, the number of Medicaid beneficiaries has more than doubled since 2000. Now 75 million are enrolled in the program, which includes 28 million able-bodied adults. In addition, 52 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries that are able-bodied do not work.

NYT Officially Designates Trump A Racist, And Nobody Cares

The New York Times wants to make it official: President Donald Trump is a racist.  On Friday, the editorial board of America’s most influential paper asserted there was no doubt of that.

The editorial was in response to Trump reportedly asking why America takes in so many immigrants from “shithole” countries instead of places like Norway.  “Where to begin?” the Times’ editorial board collectively sighed when reflecting on Trump’s statement. “How about with a simple observation: The president of the United States is a racist.”

It shouldn’t be doubted that folks like Charles Blow and others in the media genuinely believe Trump is a racist for saying “shithole” countries and criticizing illegal immigrants in colorful language. But they aren’t just saying what they believe to get it off their chest.
The commentators wanting Trump to be certified as a racist understand the power of that charge and how it has played out in politics in the past.

UPDATE: Chelsea Manning

Chelsea Elizabeth Manning (born Bradley Edward Manning, December 17, 1987) is a former United States Army soldier who was convicted by court-martial in July 2013, of violations of the Espionage Act and other offenses, after disclosing to WikiLeaks nearly 750,000 classified, or unclassified but sensitive, military and diplomatic documents. She was serving a 35-year sentence at the maximum-security U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth until President Obama commuted her sentence a few days before leaving office.

On January 9th, she tweeted this to celebrate Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

They Just Can’t Help Themselves

Yesterday, President Trump (I STILL love typing that!) held a joint press conference Monday with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto. Like Pavlovian dogs, whenever the press gets a chance to harass (Arkansas is the only state where “harass” is two words) the president, they can’t resist. They jumped on him about issuing a pardon to patriot Sheriff Joe Arpaio. There is not another man in Washington who would have responded the way Trump did. He proceeded to rip them a new one about all the sleazebags, terrorists and felons that were pardoned by Obama and Clinton with nary a peep from these howling jackals.

Donald Trump calls Chelsea Manning ‘he’ while comparing her to Joe Arpaio. Ms Manning has undergone a very public transition from man to woman.

Ms Manning, who was convicted on criminal charges for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents, has undergone a public transition in recent years to become a transgender woman. She saw her sentence commuted earlier this year by former President Barack Obama.

In addition to Ms Manning, Mr Trump referenced Marc Rich — an investor who received a pardon from former President Bill Clinton on his last day in office — and Oscar Lopez Rivera — a Puerto Rican activist and militant whose sentence was commuted by Mr Obama.

CRUZ HITS BACK

After MSNBC Host Broadsides Ted Cruz With ‘Gotcha’ Question About Hurricane Sandy, He Drops the Thunder

“But a lot of people are pointing out that you voted against aid for Sandy after that catastrophic storm up in the Northeast, that package back in 2012. They’re pointing at you and they’re pointing at you and saying, ‘You’re asking for money now when you weren’t willing to help the people in the Northeast.’ What do you have to say to them?” she asked.

“Well, look, there’s time for political sniping later,” Ted Cruz said before Tur cut him off. “I think our focus needs to be on this crisis and this disaster….  The problem with that particular bill is it became a $50 billion bill that was filled with unrelated pork. Two-thirds of that bill had nothing to do with Sandy. And what I said then, and still believe now, is that it’s not right for politicians to exploit a disaster and people are hurting to pay for their own political wish list.”

SHADES OF RAY NAGIN, THE FORMER MAYOR OF NEW ORLEANS, NOW A CONVICTED CRIMINAL, WHO DREAMED OF TURNING THE CRESCENT CITY INTO A “CHOCOLATE CITY.” HE LET HUNDREDS OF BUSES SIT IDLE WHILE PEOPLE WERE TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM KATRINA. THEN HE BLAMED GEORGE W. BUSH. THERE’S A REASON WHY EVERY BIG CITY TOILET IN THE COUNTRY IS RUN BY DEMOCRATS.

The Houston mayor told citizens to “think twice before trying to leave Houston” before Hurricane Harvey hit.

Now Houston is flooded, the city is expecting more rain, looters are ransacking stores, and people are dying. And it’s only going to get worse.
On top of that, Mayor Turner is not taking the governor’s calls:

LIBERAL POLITICIANS ARE GREAT AT CREATING DISASTERS.  DEALING WITH THEM, NOT SO MUCH.

A Virgin Mary Statue Was the Only Thing Standing After Hurricane Harvey

THIS WAS TOO GOOD TO HIDE IN THE REPLY SECTION:

A family in Texas lost their home to a fire during Hurricane Harvey, but they’re finding comfort in the only thing left standing: A statue of the Virgin Mary. The Rojas family of Robstown, Texas, had boarded up their home and left town ahead of the storm, but an electrical fire broke out and quickly spread in the winds of the storm, destroying their home as well as two others.

Message From Hurricane Harvey: Americans Helping Each Other

For once, cable news is not dominated by talking heads shouting at each other, but by images of volunteers, black and white, arriving in flat-bottomed boats to rescue neighbors from flooded buildings. Journalists are helping to direct emergency crews to save stranded drivers rather than encouraging enraged mobs to riot against the police.

Houston vs. Berkeley
I FELT COMPELLED TO INCLUDE THIS FROM DIANNY AT PATRIOT RETORT

Yet the news media has spent the last two weeks trying to convince us that those violent, disgusting thugs are “standing up to hate” and “preserving the fabric of America.”

It’s hard to watch those videos and not think, “What the hell is wrong with people?”

The Antifa cretins marched through Berkeley chanting, “No Trump, no wall, no USA at all.”

How someone could watch video of these animals and believe they are “anti-hate” or “peaceful” is anybody’s guess.

But they are not America.

This weekend in Houston, we witnessed the true spirit of America.

The guy with the Confederate flag on his boat is saving everyone. Blacks, whites. Everyone. #Meyerland #Harvey

I know it’s difficult to watch the violence Antifa is bringing to our streets and not grow discouraged at the sight of such madness.

But they are not America.

And they don’t want to be.

After all, they’re the ones chanting “No USA at all.”

But the American spirit is greater than this.

And there are more of us than there are of them.

We are America — where neighbors help neighbors.

And strangers drive in from great distances to come to the aid of others.

This is the America Antifa despises.

This is the America Antifa seeks to eradicate.

But they won’t win.

There is something more powerful than the evil of Antifa — and that’s the true spirit of America.

And the true spirit of America transcends race or national origin.

A Veteran’s Open Letter to the President

This is not normally the way I do things, but I just felt this needed its own distinction.
I am not qualified to speak on this subject, but Grunt’s son and CtH’s Warrior Princess could give their thoughts on this.
The message is long but very powerful. I’m printing it en toto because it needs to be seen.

An Army Veteran’s Open Letter to President Trump

Dear President Trump,

This is my third in a series of letters that I have written to public officials in as many days. The first was expressing my outrage at President Obama commuting the sentence of Bradley Manning. The second explained my frustration with the Democratic Congressional Representatives for not fulfilling their oath to support and defend the Constitution, part of which is acting as the representatives of the people at the inauguration. I was going to let it stop there. After those two actions, I felt as though I had lost faith in my government. I am a retired Army combat veteran, and the exploits of my government over the past couple weeks left me feeling as if it had all simply shut down on what I hold dearest. So many veterans have fought and suffered so that this country and Constitution could survive, and it was beginning to appear as though no one in the government felt any passion in that sacrifice anymore.

That was until I heard your inauguration speech today. I must admit that I did not find it particularly elegant. It was definitely not poetic or particularly flowing. What it was, however, was the most powerfully spoken address on American strength and exceptionalism that I have heard in quite some time.

Over seventy-five percent of my career was spent during a period of active conflict. I myself have three combat deployments under my belt. Unfortunately, I spent most of my career feeling that there was little support from my government—and most importantly, my President—in supporting my commitment to our founding documents. I essentially served under three presidents, and with two of them, I felt a sincere depth of disdain toward the service in general. It appeared that the military was to be used as an experiment for social justices, which put military lives at risk because it took us away from what the purpose of our mission was—to deter war through projection of power (and should that show of force fail, to win through overwhelming strength of arms). Not pretty or happy, but that is what we in the military are there to do. And the better we are at doing our jobs, the more lives we save, both in terms of our lives and the enemies’.

You, sir, filled me with a sense of patriotism that I have not felt for quite some time. In fact, it has been missing since we, the American people, seemingly forgot the awful and life-altering attack carried out on our country on September 11, 2001. I will never forget it. I was a Lieutenant at Fort Bragg, and we were conducting a field training exercise. My battery commander had just come over and ripped me up and down (something that happened quite regularly, as I was the guy who always took as much rope as I could get and wrapped it around the fence post personally to adequately hang myself) for shooting over half our allotted artillery rounds in two fire missions. It was about two hours later that he called over his officers and senior NCOs and explained to us that the United States had just come under attack by Islamic terrorists, and the Twin Towers had been destroyed. That was the same day I saw my 1SG, one of the hardest men I have ever met, crying in a corner because his brother had been one of those murdered by those cowards (cowards always kill themselves so they can escape the consequences of their actions). I spent the next few years waiting to deploy so I could do my part in what would soon become a global conflict. I also spent the next 15 years watching as my country seemed to forget what had happened to it and what America stood for. Even worse was watching as our government led by way of self-degradation for what we as a nation have accomplished throughout our miraculous history. I realized that this self-loathing had come full circle when one of my children came back from college and explained how America has never really been extraordinary.

So this is where I found myself on January 20, 2017. As I watched the inauguration I once again wondered what the legacy was that we were leaving to our posterity. Debt, hostility, lack of integrity, crime; and this was just from our government officials. Then, I listened to the oath of office that you, the President, took. I was told once as a young Lieutenant from (then) MAJ Killgallon—one of the most inspiring leaders I had the honor to call mentor—that administering the oath of office to someone was the most sacred of events. We, the ones swearing them in, were being invited into an event that was solely about that individual, and they were offering to share that spot with you. The most disrespectful thing you could do was not have that oath memorized. Ever since then, I have been fascinated by the oaths of office. The one for the President moved me. You don’t swear to protect it against all enemies foreign and domestic, nor do you swear to bear true faith and allegiance. You simply swear that you will, “to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

That is because, as of that moment, you are the physical embodiment of that document. You are the corporeal manifestation of all that the Constitution means and represents.

In listening to your address after your oath, I felt that you understood that. I heard in you a belief in America that I honestly haven’t felt since listening to Ronald Reagan. I felt in you a passion that America needs to stand for greatness, and that it has a destiny to lead the world in justice and righteousness. You also made it clear, however, that this was not possible if we the people did not first make our country accountable to us again.

So, in total dichotomy, after listening to your speech today I was filled with a true sense of remorse. I am almost 45 years old. I have lived a very good life—a life filled with both overwhelming joy and total gut-wrenching heartbreak. Yet the combination of these events has made me into the person I am today, and I had, up until now, no regrets. So why, if I felt all of this from your speech, should I feel such lament? As the President, the faith of the military is placed upon your shoulders. We go where you tell us, and should the need arise, sacrifice our lives to accomplish the mission that you place upon us. We need to believe that in doing so, we are fighting, killing, and dying for a purpose and a meaning.

Nothing angered me more than when in Somalia, after losing eighteen Rangers, we pulled the plug and came back to America. To me, it signified that our mission there was not essential. If you deploy us, you are saying that the objective is so important that there can be no value of life placed above it. We are engaging in an action that, at its core, is more important than the life of every service member within the US military. If you pull us out before that mission is done, then every life given to you, the president, was lost in vain. We who take our oaths are willing to die for our values; we ask that these deaths, however, be given for the worthy cause of supporting our Constitution.

In your speech, I heard that belief—a belief in a purpose in America. A belief in the virtue of our Constitution. My regret, sir, is that I will not be able to serve again as a member of the armed forces under a commander who gives us cause to believe in our mission. General Mattis stated in his confirmation hearing, “The primitive and often even atavistic aspects of the battlefield test the physical and mental agility of everyone, but most of what it tests is the courage and the spiritual side of the troops we put in harm’s way. And oftentimes it’s only unit cohesion, leadership, and the belief in themselves and their comrades that allows them to go through what they have to go through and come home as better men and women, not as broken. And so the Warrior Ethos is not a luxury, it is essential when you have a military.” There can be no doubt that this is a man who is worthy to lead our military. He understands the principals of combat and how to train and lead our military.

What the military needs is a president who will follow along with that example. Allow us to train hard and train to win. Utilize us judiciously, and only when the purpose is to either defend our ideals or reach out to the worthy. Most importantly, we need you to have faith and stand by the conviction that our mission is worthy of the ultimate sacrifice.

I don’t know if you will hold true to your words that you issued during your inauguration. I don’t know if your actions will be worthy of the office you just entered. What I do know is that I see in you the potential to take us back to a place of greatness.

I, sir, believe in you. I regret that I will not be able to serve under your command. If there is any word of advice that I can offer, it would be this—you hold the lives of every soldier, Marine, airman, sailor, and coast guardsman in your hand. Likewise, you will hold their deaths on your conscience. Let those lives sacrificed truly mean something. I hope that you will.

God bless you, God bless our military, and God bless America.

2-days-left

It would be reasonable to think that after 8 years and at the end of his tenure, an outgoing president would be content to simply allow his successor to begin a peaceful and orderly transition. Barack Obama cannot do it. It’s not in his DNA. Ever the Alinskyite, he is compelled to cause as much chaos and pain as is humanly possible right up to the last minute of the last day. As of this writing, he has approximately 48 hours left. He will go into hyperdrive as his presidency and his legacy go up in flames.

Obama Frees Chelsea Manning and 273 More Criminals
President Barack Obama announced his plan to free Chelsea Manning (who changed his name from Bradley) after leaking classified military documents to Wikileaks and being sentenced to 35 years in prison for his crimes.
Once in prison, Manning went on a hunger strike to demand sex change surgery in prison, which was granted by officials at the cost of American taxpayers.

Obama pardons Cartwright, source of Stuxnet virus leak
The four star general is the alleged source of information that was leaked to the press regarding a cyber attack on Iranian nuclear facilities in 2010
Cartwright allegedly leaked documents on the Stuxnet virus– a sophisticated computer program that destroyed thousands of Iran’s uranium-enriching centrifuges– to David Sanger, a senior New York Times reporter who wrote a book on Obama’s secretive wartime tactics.

Obama Lifts Sudan Sanctions
While President Bashir perpetrates Jihad
This last minute rapprochement with Jihadist Sudan by the outgoing Obama Administration comes in the face of a warning issued by Trump Adviser Dr. Walid Phares. He spoke at a Washington, DC conference with Nuba Mountain Sudan émigrés just after the election of President Trump on November 11, 2016. He avowed, “There is no reason for why we and our European allies should be lifting these sanctions, this is unacceptable.

Obama gives another $500 million to Green Climate Fund
The Obama administration approved another $500 million contribution for a United Nations’ climate fund on Tuesday, a move that is expected to infuriate Republicans who have sought to stop the payments.

WHICH IS PRECISELY WHY HE DID IT.

Obama Administration Is SCRAMBLING To Fill 200 New Policy-Making Jobs
Obama administration appointees thus appear to be filling hundreds of key policy-influencing positions before Trump takes office and his staff can hire their own personnel.

Additionally, 35 of the job announcements oddly only accepted applications for between a two and four day period. Two openings are for Senior Executive Service positions that violate the White House Office of Management’s directive.

FOR SOME REASON, I.E. IS ONLY SHOWING A BLACK SCREEN NO MATTER WHAT I CLICK ON. MY POSTING TODAY MIGHT BE OVER. HAD A LOT OF STUFF, TOO.
