The House Of Cards Continues To Fall; Insulting Our Troops *Open Thread*


Well, it is official now: Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been charged with desertion and “Misbehavior before the enemy.”

And we released five top Taliban for this man.

You may recall that back this past June, I wrote about the lunacy of Obama’s decision to make this swap in my post, “House of Cards“:

And why do I saw that? Because back in 2010, the Pentagon determined that, as many of the soldiers who served with Bergdahl are now claiming, Bergdahl was a deserter:

A Pentagon investigation concluded in 2010 that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his unit, and after an initial flurry of searching the military decided not to exert extraordinary efforts to rescue him, according to a former senior defense official who was involved in the matter.


Nathan Bradley Bethea, who served as an officer in Bergdahl’s unit, said in an article Monday on the Daily Beast website that Bergdahl was not on patrol, as some reports have suggested.

“There was no patrol that night,” he wrote. “Bergdahl was relieved from guard duty, and instead of going to sleep, he fled the outpost on foot. He deserted. I’ve talked to members of Bergdahl’s platoon_including the last Americans to see him before his capture. I’ve reviewed the relevant documents. That’s what happened.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Moreover, he RAILED against the United States in an email home to his parents, claimed he was ashamed to be an American, and more. Heck, Rolling Stone had an article including the entire email a couple of years ago, as the Klown at the Crawdad Hole pointed out (h/t to a friend for that):

[…] “The future is too good to waste on lies,” Bowe wrote. “And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

And this is for whom SIX SOLDIERS died in an attempt to return him to the base. This is for whom Obama traded five terrorists who will only be in Qatar (a Muslim Brotherhood-sympathizing country) for a year before being returned to Afghanistan. Oh, and speaking of Afghanistan, Obama didn’t bother to tell them he was pulling this stunt. Karzai is PISSED OFF about it, too.

Of course, Karzai wasn’t the only one. Many in the military, especially those men who SERVED with Bergdahl were angry because they knew Bergdahl was a deserter.

How insulted must they now be to hear the latest from the State Department spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, as she continues to parrot the Administration’s claim that they did this swap lest they leave a man behind? But that is not all, she added that Bergdahl served our country. Watch the interview with her and Megyn Kelly below:

Yes, Bergdahl “served in the military…” He served it right up on a platter to the TALIBAN, and got SIX MEN KILLED as a result of his actions. Yeah, that’s some “service” to the country, Ms. Psaki. (You can read the comments of Psaki and Kelly at this BizPacReview piece if you can’t watch the video.)

And of course, there is Susan Rice, the woman who has made some mighty outrageous statements, claimed Bergdahl, “served with distinction.” Wow, it is always Opposite World with these people, isn’t it? But I want you to watch this entire piece, especially the discussion on the whole, “Leave no man behind” mantra:

Exactly. We don’t always go the extra mile to retrieve someone, ESPECIALLY when the Pentagon has already determined that the person in question was a deserter, and we sure as HELL don’t negotiate with terrorists OR return a bunch of high level terrorists in exchange for this deserter. Oh, and of course, we know that these terrorists are going to be free to return to the battlefield in just a few short weeks. Brilliant. Not.

That “House of Cards” continues to fall.

Then there was the claim when the Airbus went down in the French Alps from the White House that this was NOT terrorism. Wrong again, as we are learning Thursday morning about this crash:

[…] Audio from the mangled voice recorder of Germanwings Flight 9525 reveals the captain was locked out of the cockpit while the co-pilot appeared to make a deliberate attempt to destroy the plane, Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin said Thursday.

The co-pilot of the doomed Germanwings flight “activated the descent” of the plane when he was alone in the cockpit, Robin said. That can only be done deliberately, he said.

From what investigators have found, it seems the co-pilot “wanted to destroy the aircraft,” the prosecutor said. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

As General McInerney said this morning on “Fox and Friends,” this is terrorism, plain and simple. This was an intentional act. We don’t know yet if this is the result of Islamic extremism, or some other kind of extremism, but make no mistake: this was terrorism.

Seriously, the people at the White House really should think before they speak.

And one last note about that. It seems this White House has continued its assault against our ally in the Middle East, Israel. How? They have released TOP SECRET INFORMATION about Israel’s nuclear program (h/t to a Facebook friend for alerting me to this). Yep. It isn’t enough that we are capitulating to Iran, not enough that we have essentially returned five top Taliban commanders to the fight, but we have to destroy our long-time ally along the way.

I am ready for some new cards to be dealt. How about you?

This is an Open Thread.

    Larry Elder, a black man, asks a good question. Evidently black lives don’t matter if they are members of law enforcement. What is wrong with the media and the liberals that they pick and choose their fauxrage over the lives of black people?

    There is no consistence, honesty or decency. Or in other words, typical liberal behavior. As for the black community that sits apathetically while this goes on – my disgust with you knows no end.

    Four (Black) Cops Killed in Seven Days — Where’s the Outrage?

    Wednesday, March 4: Fulton County police detective Terence Avery Green was killed, shot in the head by a suspect. According to WXIA-TV, Atlanta: “Police responded to a shots fired call early Wednesday. They were told the suspect was possibly intoxicated. Neighbors said the man was going from house to house, banging on doors and firing a long barrel gun. …

    “(Fulton County Assistant Police Chief Gary) described the situation as an ambush, saying the officers ‘were trying to do their job, they were trying to protect this neighborhood from someone who was shooting. And they had no other option but to do their job. And the way it appears to me, they were ambushed without warning.’ …

    “Green was a veteran officer with nearly 22 years of service. He is survived by his parents and his four sons.”–wheres-the-outrage-n1976238/page/full

      GREAT piece, Marge – and it does beg the question why black lives don’t matter when they are shrouded in blue. It also highlights just how successful Obama, Holder, and Sharpton were at depicting police officers as the enemy. It is deplorable.

      My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of these officers who were senselessly gunned down in the line of duty…

    Susan Rice says Bo Bergdhal served with “honor and distinction”. But then she told us that Benghazi was caused by a video. Woman just can’t tell the truth can she?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Next thing you know, she will be elevated to Sec. of State or something. It is amazing with what ease this woman lies. It speaks volumes abt her character – or lack thereof…

      • mcnorman Says:

        What character? No morals either. 😦

        • kenoshamarge Says:

          You could make a long, a very long, list of good character traits and just put “no” in front of them and it would describe her. In fact the hard part would be finding something positive to say about her. I have no intention of even trying. To me a POS is a POS and she remains one by choice.

          • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

            True enough, y’all. Honestly, I cannot imagine how someone like her lives with herself, but she seems to do so just fine, doesn’t she? Amazing.

            Marge, yes, Obama did want her as SoS. I am sure there is some position even higher than the one she has now with which she will be rewarded – again.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Her lies about Benghazi kept her from being SoS. Obama wanted her and Kerry was his second choice since he knew she wouldn’t be confirmed.

        Poor Kerry, always a bridesmaid and never a bride. s/

  3. kenoshamarge Says:

    You have to wonder how women like Jan Psaki sleep at night. She is despicable!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      You said it, Marge. I think the video above also shows the TREMENDOUS restraint Megyn Kelly has to not just let fly at her that she is insulting those who wear the uniform proudly, those who truly DO serve their country, those who would never DREAM of deserting their posts, and those who give their lives in service to this nation. Bergdahl’s name does not belong in such company.

  4. kenoshamarge Says:

    How do you suppose the media is going to try to back Obama out of the Rose Garden debacle? Too bad there are images otherwise he could just claim he only heard about Bergdhal on television. The flunkies then take the heat and lie the lies.

  5. foxyladi14 Says:

    Makes me feel like this.

  6. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    I am watching a former Marine JAG, Jay Town, on “Happening Now” who said that more charges could be filed against Bergdahl. That’s what I thought Judge Napolitano said. So, yeah, he could egt even more against him – and he deserves to, IMHO…

  7. Cindyindie Says:

    Hi everybody!! Great post, Cuzin…..I think they said it all on that Chris Wallace panel..
    I’m so glad that Bergdahl’s troop-mates have been vindicated…..And that Susan Rice and Obama are once again proven to be liars!!!
    Thank you for the post, Cuz—-I’ll try not to be gone for so long next time……!!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Hey, Cuz’n!! So glad to *see* you again! I have missed you! And yeah, that panel was awesome. When even Ron Fournier is agreeing with Stephen Hayes, you know the Administration messed this one up royally. (Jason Chaffetz is on Fox and Friends right now – he is NOT happy with what Susan Rice said.)

  8. GinaR Says:

    More updates on the co-pilot who killed 149 people; can’t wait to see how they spin this!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thanks so much for this, Gina. So much for the pronouncement from the White House, huh?? Good grief…

  9. HELENK3 Says:


    Harry Reid, US Senate Democratic Leader, will not seek re-election – @nytimes

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Just heard that on the news. He knew it would cost a ton of money to get re-elected, and he wants the DNC to spend it elsewhere. Thank heavens we won’t have to put up with HIM any more…

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        And what will it cost to get another Dem elected? Who does he think he’s kidding.

        In our happiness that this corrupt man is leaving the Senate, and eliminating some of the stench, remember that Chuck Schumer is rumored to be the one to replace him. IMO Schumer is just as evil but doesn’t “appear” quite as crazy.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Good point abt Schumer. He does give the appearance of being “normal,” but yeah, it is only an appearance…

      • HELENK3 Says:

        too many shady deals getting the sunlight treatment?
