A Discharge For One, And A Presidential Run For The Other? *Open Thread*

by

Over the weekend, I put up an article in the comments from Allen B. West’s site, “How This Marine Hero Is Being PUNISHED For His Email Will Make Your Blood Boil.” Obviously, this is a big issue considering what has been happening with Sec. Hillary Clinton and her classified email for the past few years. And in both cases, neither one is going away.

Since putting up that link to West’s piece, I have learned more about what happened to the now honorably discharged Major Jason Brezler. This morning, I saw Greg Buckley, the father of one of the three Marines killed in Afghanistan after the Marine Corps ignored Major Brezler’s warning, and his attorney. Here is what they had to say about the event that took Lance Corporal Buckley’s life, and Major Jason Brezler:

The attorney makes VERY clear that what the Marine Corps did, especially in terms of his communications with Rep. Peter King, is a violation of the Whistleblower Act.

But even worse is that the Marines REQUESTED an email from him about the situation in Afghanistan, then prosecute him after he complied with their request. It is just astonishing. Astonishing that this has happened to a US Marine who tried to protect his fellow Marines.

Greg Buckley, the father of murdered Lance Corporal Greg Buckley, Jr., directed people to Lance Corporal Lance Buckley, Jr.’s Facebook page which details what happened to his son and two other Marines. Just to be clear, here is the story from the perspective of Buckley’s family:

On August 10, 2012 … SSgt. Cody Rhode, 27; SSgt Scott Dickinson, 29; Cpl Richard Rivera, 20; & LCpl Gregory Buckley, 21 were unarmed, working out in a make-shift gym on their Forward Operating Base (FOB) Delhi in Garmsir District, Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

They were ordered to live on this part of the base with the Afghan Police they were assigned to train. These Afghan National Police Trainees had unrestricted access to weapons & to our men day & night.

Just days away from returning home to the USA Scott, Richie & Greg were ambushed by an Afghan jihadist named Ainuddin or Khud (Ainuddin Abdul Qwader Khudairaham) who although unvetted & not an Afghan trainee, was permitted by 3/8’s leaders to live on FOB Delhi as a “tea boy / sex slave” to the Afghan District Police Chief Sarwar Jan, a notoriously corrupt man, who had come to live on FOB Delhi, with NINE young boys just 17 days prior.

The shooter, Khud, was immediately captured on the base as he proudly proclaimed “I did jihad…I did jihad”. Police Chief Jan, whose AK-47 was the murder weapon, was detained but released by our government after two weeks.

[…]

NCIS began their investigation on the base that day. The Marine Corps has classified their deaths as homicides.

Our boys were not killed in combat, they were singled out & executed just days prior to their returning to the states.

This was a planned execution of United States Marines & the Taliban claimed credit.

What happened to these Marines is deplorable. And it is even more tragic knowing they were about to come home. I cannot even begin to imagine the angst, the grief, and the anger, these families are feeling. My heart goes out to them for their losses. Our nation also lost these fine young Marines.

But they didn’t have to lose them. What is worse is that they set their sights on another Marine, and essentially drummed him out of the service for trying to save the lives of his fellow Marines. That they did so AFTER requesting more information from him is appalling.

Meanwhile, of course, is Hillary Clinton and HER email scandal. Today, The Hill is reporting even MORE emails have been exposed as “classified”:

[…] Two emails that included information recently deemed top secret by the intelligence community inspector general are not among the 60 emails, according to the newspaper.

Most of the 60 emails flagged as sensitive contained information classified at the lowest level of “confidential,” while one was deemed at the intermediate level of “secret,” the Times reports.

The emails are among those reviewed and cleared for release under an open-records requests through the end of July, according to the report, indicating that the figure is likely to grow. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

How is it possible that we have Major Brezler being separated from service over requested emails, yet Hillary Clinton continues to run for Commander in Chief when evidence continues to mount that show her not only to b a LIAR, but that she put the country at risk by discussing classified information over an unsecure server?

How is it that Sec. Clinton continues to have freedom of movement when General Petraeus, a HIGHLY decorated General and former CIA Director, was found guilty for far less an infringement regarding classified material shared with someone who had SECURITY clearance?

It continues to astound me that Hillary Clinton has gotten away with so much for so long, but others are held accountable for far less in the case of Petraeus, and for responding to a request in the case of Brezler. There is something seriously, seriously wrong with this picture. That picture needs to change. If ANYONE is going to be held accountable, it should be Sec. Clinton whose volumes of emails, many of which we know for sure were classified, were unsecure and easily targeted.

And for heaven’s sake, RESTORE Major Brezler to the Reserves. He deserves nothing less, and neither do we, the citizens. He is PRECISELY the kind of person we should be celebrating, a true hero who tried to save the lives of brother Marines. Brezler most definitely should not be penalized for his actions, especially since they were the result of a request by Command. Enough with the double standards already!

At least that’s what I think. How about you?

This is an Open Thread.

(Apologies for any grammatical or syntax errors that may appear. We are having the logs sanded and re-sealed on our house, and the banging and sanding started before I finished writing. I can barely hear myself think, so that’s my story and I’m sticking with it!)

    One more bit of news regarding Mrs. Clinton. It seems there just may be a BACKUP SERVER that still holds her emails. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Here is the story from Legal Insurrection: http://legalinsurrection.com/2015/08/back-up-server-would-be-very-bad-news-for-hillary/

  2. kenoshamarge Says:

    That one of the nation’s heroes is treated this way while one of the nation’s parasites gets a pass is unconscionable.

    I don’t even recognize this country anymore? What the liberals and their media cronies have done is repulsive and should outrage every citizen.

      That never stops them Marge. 👿

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      It is extraordinary, isn’t it? Between General Petraeus and Major Brezler, one who shared classified info with someone who at least had SECURITY clearance, and the other who responded to a request for information, it is amazing to see how our military personnel are being targeted yet Clinton continues along running for President. It is simply amazing.

    Sen. Claire McCaskill Calls Claims of Illegal Behavior by Hillary Clinton a ‘Political Witch Hunt’

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/sen-claire-mccaskill-calls-claims-illegal-behavior-hillary/story?id=33117714

    Ya think McCaskill is trying to make points with the Clintonistas after her defection to Obama back in 2008? Moves like that can come back to haunt you.

    Maybe she should keep quiet since it appears she has legal troubles of her own. And poor Claire ain’t no Clinton so she just might be held to account for her actions. That’s the best scenario IMO but if nothing else it should show the good voters of her state exactly how lacking in character she is. Oh wait, her supporters are Democrats – they won’t care.

    I also think that laws like this only apply to Republicans. Dems can pretty much do what they want.

    Group: McCaskill violated campaign laws

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Maybe McCaskill is buttering Clinton up in the hopes she will be President, and can then PARDON her, or better yet, not allow her to be charged.

      And you are right – it seems the law has become one-sided. It is shocking to see with what they can get away, and how gleefully, too. So much for that “Nation of Laws” claim…

    Scott Walker Confronts Union Protesters at Iowa State Fair

    Speaking on the soap box at the Iowa State Fair Monday morning, Governor Scott Walker was welcomed by an all too familiar crowd — union hecklers.

    Rather than ignoring the front row rabble-rousers, Governor Walker confronted them directly.

    “I am not intimidated by you, sir, or anyone else out there. I will fight for the American people over, and over, and over, again. You want someone who’s tested? I’m right here. You can see it. This is what happened in Wisconsin. We will not back down. We will do what is necessary to defend the American people going forward,” said Walker.

    http://legalinsurrection.com/2015/08/scott-walker-confronts-union-protesters-in-iowa/

    This is the Scott Walker I admire. This is the Scott Walker few know.

    Still don’t think he has a chance. After all, being the son of a Preacher, he can’t afford to fly in on his helicopter and give the kiddies a ride. It’s always about the money!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I don’t know abt the rabble-rousing implication (ahahaha), but GOOD for Walker for showing the backbone that has made him such a good Governor!

      I sure hope that Trump’s money isn’t enough to sway this election. We so, so, SO need someone like Walker, I hope people will look through the Dollar signs…

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        When people keep talking about a fighter they seem to forget what Walker went through here in Wisconsin. What his supporters were still going through until just recently via the “John Doe” warrants that bullied and intimidated his supporters. A few loudmouths with signs mean little to him. He’s faced more and worse.

        • kenoshamarge Says:

          Walker doesn’t need to use school yard epithets like a 12 year old to get his point across. Notice he called no one stupid or a loser.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          That’s just the problem, isn’t it? Like when people complain abt Romney being a “wimp,” as someone did at Facebook recently, I just shake my head. He is POLITE and has MANNERS, and doesn’t act like an arrogant jackass like some other people did (Obama).

          It’s the same with Walker. He lets his actions do the talking most of the time, and what people want, sadly, is some side show. We need a SERIOUS person who has the fortitude and temperament to get this country back on track. No way in HELL is that the invective-spewing Trump.

    Time to make some popcorn, isn’t it? Check out this one on those pesky emails: http://hotair.com/archives/2015/08/17/oh-my-state-dept-suddenly-finds-thousands-of-hillary-aides-e-mails-they-denied-existing-in-2013/

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Looks like there may be some people over that State that don’t want to take a bullet for their former boss. Self-interest is a powerful motivator when it come to coming clean doing the right thing.

      Get out the popcorn and watch the vultures circle

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Oh, yeah – nothing like a little self interest to get people to start telling the truth, huh?? Yep – seems like a good time for popcorn indeed!

  8. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    I have seen Hillary speak a number of times today while watching the news. I swear, she was not like this in 2008. She was not so condescending, attacking, blaming, smug, and arrogant. She discussed policy, not making distasteful jokes abt her emails and server. The way she talks now, the dripping disdain, the scolding tone – she did NOT sound like that in 2008 if I recall correctly.

    Just an observation…

  9. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    And the number of emails being reviewed continues to grow: http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/251293-more-than-300-clinton-emails-flagged-for-review

    As many of the people I know continue to stand with Trump no matter what, now lauding his WONDERFUL Immigration plan, they may want to consider this: http://thefederalist.com/2015/08/18/why-donald-trumps-immigration-plan-empowers-political-elites

    What am I saying? They seem as unwilling to consider information like this as the 2008 Obots did…
