Skip to comments.Bergdahl Release Reveals a Presidency Out of Control
Posted on 06/09/2014 7:04:23 AM PDT by Kaslin
As the news media cranked up the heat on the White Houses disastrous handling of the Veterans Affairs scandal, President Barack Obama decided it was time to change the subject and make the news about him again. So what does he do? Obama finalizes the release of five top Taliban commanders from Guantanamo in exchange for the Talibans release of one American soldier.
Not just any soldier but a high value soldier Sargent Bowe Bergdahl, who deserted his duty in 2009 when he walked off his base in Afghanistan right into the enemy hands of the Taliban. And Bergdahl caused the death of six of soldiers who joined other soldiers in a massive search for him.
Did Obama really think he was going to receive accolades for this noble act from anyone but Bergdahls parents or was it a deliberate move to further harm America and our credibility on the world stage? Many Americans were aghast not to mention both Democrat and Republican members of Congress because Obama broke the law with the exchange.
First, America isnt supposed to negotiate with terrorist for the release of hostages. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said the United States didnt directly negotiate with the Taliban but had Qatar do it as its proxy. Whether direct or indirect the Obama administration negotiated for hostages. Second, Obama refused to notify Congress 30 days before releasing the five detainees from Guantanamo, as mandated by law.
Nevertheless, all week the news has been about the president and whether he thinks hes above the law. Frankly, Obama doesnt seem to care about our laws or what people at home or abroad think about him or his presidency. He appears to be determined to transform America from within and without into a weakened nation.
Prior to the release of Bergdahl, this president supported his Attorney General Eric Holders efforts to hold civilian trials for terrorists in New York City, a stones throw away from the World Trade Center. This is the same president who also refuses to use the mighty stick of American diplomacy abroad, which has made America look like a super punk rather than a super power.
Obama rented out our foreign policy to Russias President Vladimir Putin, who brokered a flimsy chemical weapons ban with Syrias President Bashar Assad. No wonder Putin invaded Ukraine. He knows America wasnt going to stop him. And this is the same President of the United States who eased sanctions on Iran believing in earnest the mullahs will disarm their nuclear program. Of course this is like believing members of the Taliban, whom Obama released back into freedom, wont plot against us, which is exactly what they've already vowed to do.
Even people in Afghanistan cant understand why Obama would want to free some of the most dangerous militants within the Taliban, especially at a time when the US plans to withdraw most of its troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2014. To further emphasize the presidents empathy for terrorists, this week administration officials said the president will continue to pursue his pledge to close Guantanamo. Why all these bad moves?
Dinesh DSouza writes in The Roots of Obamas Rage that While one might expect a president to be mostly concerned with protecting the American people from terrorist attack, Obamas primary concern seems to be with protecting captured terrorists from the American people.
From day one of his presidency, Obama viewed America as a nation in need of transformation, one too big for its britches, waging wars and shoving its principles onto the rest of the world. Obama considered Americas policies of freedom, liberty and decency polices bad for America and bad for the world, writes DSouza.
After five years, theres no doubt Obamas policies are not serving the interest of America or her people. The release of Bergdhal highlights the failings of a presidency out of control and its high time Congress intervenes and does something about it.
Jan 20, 2017 cannot come quickly enough.
With an election debacle looming for Democrats in 2014, you would think that a delegation of senior Dem lawmakers would have by now reigned in this out of control presidency before it takes them all down with him. It appears that in this case, however, that ideology trumps even political self-preservation.
The SOB must be removed from office before he brings on more damage and chaos. He needs to be shown that he is NOT above the law no matter what his color, religion, or politics. We cannot hope and pray for his resignation or wait for his replacement in 2016. As a nation, we have NO OTHER CHOICE but to physically remove him from power NOW.
Daddy should have NEVER spoken in Pashto.
Everyone agrees that Obama made a big mistake by making it a Whitehouse Opera.
Focusing on Bergdahl is exactly what Obama wants.
Focus belongs on Obama’s treason.
When will the stoning begin?
Where is the burqa?
Where is the selfie?
They look so joyful. Slaps the faces of the families whose soldiers' sons and maybe daughters died to help free their jackleg son.
Not to mention the families of the soldiers who died putting people, and I say that loosely, who put people, and I say that loosely, too, into Gitmo in the first place.
Shameless. Heartless. And more. Period.
I don't begrudge the parents their joy at the release of their son. No, my fury is directed at the deserter and Obama.
Absolutely. And, on his multiple other counts of treason.
I remember seeing a bumper stickers saying: "1/20/2008, the end of an Error".
I'm thinking about making one: "1/20/2017, the end of a national nightmare", along with the Obama logo.
If I put it up on Cafepress, I might be able to make some money on it.
the way things are headed, I am not convinced that he will leave office. Should he decide not to leave, who will oppose him? The Courts, the Republican Party, the military, the people? The next time any of the aforementioned oppose him will be the first time.
Obama does not care what people think or who he hurts, including Democrats.
Yes, they can be joyful in the release of their son but does it have to be so public. What I was trying to say is that there are parents, et al who will not ever see such hope for reunion.
Instead the Bergdahls show their joy in the Rose Garden for the world to see. I hurt for the surviving families and friends whose loved one came home in a casket.
How the Benghazi families must ache. They were betrayed. Bowe deserted, is responsible for who knows how many deaths, and his parents are given a Rose Garden reception, with smiles all around.
I'd like to see a translation of what the father said. Did he claim the Rose Garden as captured Muslim territory?
Anybody know if there has been a translation? ------------------>
Love your signon name...haven't heard that joke in a long time but it is funny everytime!
I’m sure Linda Graham would say that we might have to impeach him if he stays for a fourth term...
Well, the Muzzie-In-Chief made himself a pretty good deal; he got 6 fellow muzzies freed- knowing that there was not one politico that would have the guts to do anything about it.
I saw this coming when he first threw his turban into the ring. If elected, he could do as he d*mn well pleased and not one would go against him for fear of being labeled ‘racist’, ‘bigot’- yet dumba** American ‘white guilters’ and ‘gimmedats’ put him in office TWICE.
And to top it all off, Obongo had books out clearly defining what he is...yet they were ignored and he was STILL
In a sane world, having the following comments out in print via Obamas racist books would have knocked him out of the running for president of the United States. (they would have crucified a white candidate for far less)
From Dreams from My Father, I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHERS RACE. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from my Father, The emotion between the races could never be pure, even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, THE OTHER RACE (WHITE) WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN JUST THAT: MENACING, ALIEN, AND APART. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from My Father: THAT HATE HADNT GONE he wrote, BLAMING WHITE PEOPLE some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives. Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from My Father, There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs, he wrote. It remained necessary to prove which side you were on,to show your LOYALTY TO THE BLACK MASSES, TO STRIKE OUT and name names Barack Hussein Obama
From Dreams from My Father, I VOWED THAT I WOULD NEVER EMULATE WHITE MEN whose fates didnt speak to my own. IT WAS INTO MY FATHERS IMAGE, THE BLACK MAN, SON OF AFRICA, THAT ID PACKED ALL THE ATTRIBUTES I SOUGHT IN MYSELF, THE ATTRIBUTES OF MARTIN AND MALCOLM, DUBOIS AND MANDELA Barack Hussein Obama
From The Audicity of Hope: To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.
From The Audicity of Hope: After graduating from college, Obama eventually went to Chicago to interview for a job as a community organizer. His racial attitudes came into play as he sized up the man who would become his boss: There was something about him that made me wary, Obama wrote. A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.
From The Audacity of Hope:..the white race...that ghostly figure that haunted black dreams.
From Dreams: (after making his first visit to Kenya, he wrote of being disappointed to learn that his paternal grandfather had been a servant to rich whites. that the revelation caused)ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House n-.
From The Audacity of Hope: We are no longer just a Christian nation, he argues in Audacity, which was published last year. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.
To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.
From Audacity: Her memories of the Christians who populated her youth were not fond ones, Obama wrote. For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness.
Malcolm Xs autobiography seemed to offer something different, Obama wrote. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force
Then there is his love of Islam:
Quote from Barack Obamas book, Dreams Of My Father:
THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM.
From Dreams of my Father, IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL ..I STUDIED THE KORAN..
From Audacity of Hope: LOLO (Obamas step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE.
From The Audacity Of Hope, I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION.. .
From The Audacity Of Hope, WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.
