The Once Obama/Democrat Hero Bowe Bergdahl Pleads Guilty to Desertion … Why Was There an Admission of Guilt and No Deal, Or was There?
OBAMA SHOULD PLEAD GUILTY FOR SWAPPING 5 HIGH LEVEL TALIBAN TERRORISTS FOR THIS TRAITOR …
Yesterday, U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdah pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. Unfortunately, there was no trial because this case deserved transparency and why the Obama prisoner exchange was ever allowed. Bergdahl admitted to knowingly leaving his post in June 2009 and that it was against the law. He would be captured by the Taliban and held by them until Barack Obama made the ill advised, head-scratching prisoner exchange. Obama and Democrats have a lot to explain for this. Of which they will never do. Obama exchanged 5 high ranking Taliban terrorists that he knew would go back to the battle field to try and kill Americans, had a Rose Garden White House ceremony as if Bowe Bergdahl was a conquering hero and Democrats praised him as a hero.
Make no mistake about it. there were no kangaroo courts or lynch mobs as he claimed. What there is in the United States are laws and consequences when you break those laws. Compound that when you are in the United States military. The individual who the Obama administration deemed a hero in Bergdahl now faces the possibility of life in prison.
Judge Andrew Napolitano States legal council for Bergdahl threatened to call as witnesses Susan Rice & Barack Obama
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.”
The 31-year-old said he deserted from his outpost to try to reach the base from where he was dispatched. Bergdahl told the judge he wanted to report “a critical problem in my chain of command,” but did not specify what that problem was.
There was no pre-trial agreement prior to Bergdahl’s guilty plea, both the government and defense said.
Bergdahl faces up to five years in prison for the desertion charge and up to life in prison for the charge of misbehavior before the enemy.
Sorry if I think what Barack Obama did in this exchange was treason.
Retired Marine Col. Jeffrey A. Powers Letter To The NFL (VIDEO) … “I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem.”
DOES THE NFL AND THE LEFT REALLY WANT TO BE ON THE OPPOSING SIDE OF THIS RETIRED MARINE?
Retired Marine Col. Jeffrey A. Powers letter to the NFL puts life and everything into perspective. The words and actions of a true American hero and of those who defend our liberties and freedom as compared to a bunch of spoiled, over-paid malcontents. Let’s remember who the real heroes are in life, they where uniforms, not sports jerseys.
I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and Giants Stadium.
I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.
Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.
Now I watch multi millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!
You are complicit in this!
You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the morale courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this.
Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner. What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?
I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone? Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is ok? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multimillion dollar contracts for playing a freaking game! You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applause those who have not.
Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles.
They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do 24/7 often with lead,not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many do t have legs or arms. Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.
I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!
Time to change the channel.

THE FANS # 1 Player … Alejandro Villanueva, the One Steeler Who Stood for Anthem Now Has Best-Selling NFL Jersey
WAKE THE HELL UP NFL … LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ONE PLAYER WHO ACTUALLY STOOD FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM …
Wanna know what a real hero and patriot looks like? Prior the the game on Sunday at of all places Soldier Field in Chicago, Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva decided to honor his team, his military band of brothers in arms, rather than a sports team, and stood for the National Anthem in the tunnel. This is what a hero looks like. Standing by yourself as all others act like sheep. The result of his heroic and respectful actions, his jersey became the best-selling player in the NFL by midday Monday. Talk about putting things in perspective. Alejandro Villanueva was criticized by his coach and by some players by not doing what the rest of the team voted on. However, this man, this former Army Ranger who earned a Bronze Star and served three tours in Afghanistan served with a much more important team. It was that TEAM who defend and protect our way of life. NFL fans get it, sadly the NFL, owners and the players do not. When an offensive lineman’s jersey becomes the #1 seller ahead of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, what does that tell you NFL?
The NFL better get their act in gear and soon, otherwise you will be dead to many of us fans forever.
Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva became the best-selling player in the NFL by midday Monday.
A spokesman for Fanatics, which runs the NFL’s online store, confirmed to ESPN that, over the past 24 hours, more Villanueva gear, including jerseys and name and number T-shirts, has been ordered than that of any other NFL player.
Villanueva beat out New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for the top spot. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers rounded out the top five over the past day.
Both the NFL Shop and Fanatics websites had Villanueva jerseys and T-shirts in men’s and women’s sizes.
A former Army Ranger who earned a Bronze Star and served three tours in Afghanistan, Villanueva was the only Steelers player who came outside the tunnel during Sunday’s national anthem, after the team collectively decided not to be on the sideline during the song. Pictures and video of Villanueva standing, with his hand on his heart, filled social media networks.
His actions weren’t supported by all, including his own coach. Asked after the Steelers’ 23-17 loss to the Chicago Bears what he thought of Villanueva’s positioning for the anthem, Mike Tomlin responded, “I was looking for 100 percent participation. We were gonna be respectful of our football team.”
The NFL is about to learn a real tough lesson and that is they are not bigger that the United States. Their players are not heroes, those that defend our freedoms are. Their players are not role models, they are over-paid, spoiled millionaires who doesn’t have a clue as to what true sacrifice means. Americans and fans know the difference. The NFL is entertainment, not politics. It is supposed to be a diversion away from division and hateful politics. Thank you so little for ruining it. You could have nipped this in the bud last year, but the coward NFL commissioner was too busy with over-infalted balls and the owners were too busy hiding and making money.
PRESIDENT TRUMP LISTENS TO ALL SIDES FROM HIS GENERALS AND HAS MADE A DECISION ON AFGHANISTAN …
Last night at President Donald Trump spoke to the nation from Fort Myer military base in Arlington, VA. putting forth his strategy for the war in Afghanistan and South Asia. President Trump stated, we will not be nation building, the US military will be killing terrorists. His critics call it a flip-flop, however, any common sense thinking person sees it as a reasoned and responsible decision after getting all the facts and listening to those that know the best how to win a war, military generals. Listen to the speech below, this is what a President and Commander in Chief sounds like.
But all my life I’ve heard that decisions are much different when you sit behind the desk in the Oval Office, in other words, when you’re president of the United States. So I studied Afghanistan in great detail and from every conceivable angle. After many meetings, over many months, we held our final meeting last Friday at Camp David with my cabinet and generals to complete our strategy.
I arrived at three fundamental conclusion about America’s core interests in Afghanistan. First, our nation must seek an honorable and enduring outcome worthy of the tremendous sacrifices that have been made, especially the sacrifices of lives. The men and women who serve our nation in combat deserve a plan for victory. They deserve the tools they need and the trust they have earned to fight and to win.
Second, the consequences of a rapid exit are both predictable and unacceptable. 9/11, the worst terrorist attack in our history, was planned and directed from Afghanistan because that country was ruled by a government that gave comfort and shelter to terrorists.
A hasty withdrawal would create a vacuum for terrorists, including ISIS and Al Qaeda, would instantly fill just as happened before Sept. 11. And as we know, in 2011, America hastily and mistakenly withdrew from Iraq. As a result, our hard-won gains slipped back into the hands of terrorist enemies. Our soldiers watched as cities they had fought for and bled to liberate, and won, were occupied by a terrorist group called ISIS. The vacuum we created by leaving too soon gave safe haven for ISIS to spread, to grow, recruit and launch attacks. We cannot repeat in Afghanistan the mistake our leaders made in Iraq.
Third, and finally, I concluded that the security threats we face in Afghanistan and the broader region are immense. Today, 20 U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations are active in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the highest concentration in any region anywhere in the world.
Since the founding of our republic, our country has produced a special class of heroes whose selflessness, courage and resolve is unmatched in human history. American patriots from every generation have given their last breath on the battlefield for our nation and for our freedom.
Through their lives, and though their lives were cut short, in their deeds they achieved total immortality. By following the heroic example of those who fought to preserve our republic, we can find the inspiration our country needs to unify, to heal, and to remain one nation, under God.
The men and women of our military operate as one team, with one shared mission and one shared sense of purpose. They transcend every line of race, ethnicity, creed and color to serve together and sacrifice together in absolutely perfect cohesion. That is because all service members are brothers and sisters. They’re all part of the same family. It’s called the American family. They take the same oath, fight for the same flag and live according to the same law. They’re bound together by common purpose, mutual trust and selfless devotion to our nation and to each other.
The soldier understands what we as a nation too often forget, that a wound inflicted upon a single member of our community is a wound inflicted upon us all. When one part of America hurts, we all hurt. And when one citizen suffers an injustice, we all suffer together. Loyalty to our nation demands loyalty to one another. Love for America requires love for all of its people.
When we open our hearts to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice, no place for bigotry and no tolerance for hate. The young men and women we send to fight our wars abroad deserve to return to a country that is not at war with itself at home. We cannot remain a force for peace in the world if we are not at peace with each other.
As we send our bravest to defeat our enemies overseas — and we will always win — let us find the courage to heal our divisions within. Let us make a simple promise to the men and women we ask to fight in our name, that when they return home from battle, they will find a country that has renewed the sacred bonds of love and loyalty that unite us together as one.
Thanks to the vigilance and skill of the American military, and of our many allies throughout the world, horrors on the scale of Sept. 11 — and nobody can ever forget that — have not been repeated on our shores.
And we must acknowledge the reality I’m here to talk about tonight, that nearly 16 years after the Sept. 11 attacks, after the extraordinary sacrifice of blood and treasure, the American people are weary of war without victory. Nowhere is this more evident than with the war in Afghanistan, the longest war in American history, 17 years.
I share the American people’s frustration. I also share their frustration over a foreign policy that has spent too much time, energy, money — and most importantly, lives — trying to rebuild countries in our own image instead of pursuing our security interests above all other considerations.
That is why shortly after my inauguration, I directed Secretary of Defense Mattis and my national security team to undertake a comprehensive review of all strategic options in Afghanistan and South Asia. My original instinct was to pull out. And historically, I like following my instincts.
Atlanta Gym Qwner Discriminated Against Police Officers & Active Members of the Miliatry … “No F*cking Cops” Sign (VIDEO)
ITS TOO BAD THE HYPOCRITICAL LEFT DOESN’T ALLOW RIGHT LEANING BUSINESSES THEY DON’T AGREE WITH TO DO THE SAME WHEN THEY RUN THEIR BUSINESS … INSTEAD THEY TRY AND SHUT THEM DOWN.
As reported at 11 Alive, an Atlanta gym owner has decided to take a rather interesting PR approach to his business. Normally when one opens a business they try to spread their product to a large audience; however, not when you are a hating liberal. This business has a no police and military rule. Huh? The owner of the AV Barbell Club stated, “We’ve had an explicitly stated ‘No Cop’ policy since we opened, and we also don’t open membership to active members of the military.” Well, he has the right to do this. Then again, we have the rights too and to criticize his foolish conduct. As The Daily Caller opines, good luck with those Yelp reviews and they rest you will receive on social media. Now if only the Left and individuals like Mr. Chambers would take the same approach when it came to businesses they didn’t agree with. Like when they try to close them down because they don’t like them. As for Jim Chambers, owner of the EAV Barbell Club on Flat Shoals Avenue in the city’s East Atlanta Village neighborhood, good luck if you ever need help from law enforcement. Karma has a real big way of coming back to bite you.
This is the sign the gym owner put up. He has since taken it down. But why, you are free to express what you really feel.
A shocking and vulgar sign about police officers has been posted in front of a local business in Atlanta. The sign could be seen from the street with the curse word blurred out, but the message is clear: It says no cops allowed.
An 11Alive News viewer emailed us the photo of the sign. He says he’s a military veteran and was offended when he saw it outside the East Atlanta Village gym.
11Alive’s Faith Abubey talked to the gym’s owner, who is not making any apologies for putting up the sign.
“It was really just that the vulgarity in that sign, and that seems to bring it out for people,” said Jim Chambers, owner of the EAV Barbell Club on Flat Shoals Avenue in the city’s East Atlanta Village neighborhood.
Unbelievable, the idiot owner of this gym believes that his ban on police and military is a political statement. Hmm, freedom of speech is a double edge sword. Good luck with the backlash you receive from this and despite what the police might have said about help, good luck to them showing up if you need their assistance. The fool owner went on to say, “we don’t want a place where we can make them (police) stronger so that they can hurt people more efficiently”. What a sick and disturbed individual. It really is true, liberalism is a mental disease.
