Bergdahl Makes His Way Home

The Bergdahl swap will no doubt go down in history as one of America’s darkest hours. We traded so much more than men. We traded our integrity as a nation. We put the entire globe at greater risk by emboldening our enemy. How can we afford to place any further confidence in this administration when they have let us down so desperately? And now adding insult to injury we learn that at least one of the swapped Taliban commanders has made contact with terrorist networks in Qatar. God help us. Bowe Read more […]

White House Admits Threatening While Pretending to Deny It

The White House admits threatening the families of the hostages killed by thugs of the Islamic State. They communicated to the Foleys and the Sotloffs that they would be prosecuted if they paid a ransom to get their boys back. As Newser.com puts it: “In terms of what was communicated to the families, in the midst of many, many meetings over the course of this very difficult circumstance, we obviously made clear what the law is,” chief of staff Denis McDonough told Fox News Sunday, as per Politico. But Read more […]

TV Journalist Confronts State Department about Lying

Wow, you mean after more than five long years of complicity the press is finally going to start calling out this Administration on its repeated lies? I hope they keep up with this. From the Daily Caller: “NBC’s Andrea Mitchell Catches State Dept Spokeswoman In Lie.” NBC’s Andrea Mitchell called out a deputy State Department spokeswoman for falsely describing the White House’s history of briefing Congress on sensitive operations like the Bergdahl trade, repeatedly refuting her claim Read more […]

Was Bergdahl Really Threatened? Or Is the White House Really Afraid of Impeachment?

As I mentioned when the news first broke, the swap between Bowe Bergdahl and the five Taliban leaders was illegal. The executive branch was supposed to give notification to Congress according to duly passed legislation. The Administration made the deal with the Taliban without giving that notification—just as Barack Obama indicated he would do when he appended a “signing statement” as he signed the legislation. Yesterday I saw this news story: The Obama administration has told senators Read more […]

Accusations Against Bowe Bergdahl: Chuck Hagel Is Right but Being Subject to WH Propaganda is Also Unfair

The Administration’s defenders are out in force trying to stave off the flood of rage against the White House for the Taliban-Bergdahl exchange. According to the Associated Press, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday it is unfair to the family of released captive Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to leap to conclusions about his behavior in uniform. “We don’t do that in the United States,” Hagel told reporters at a NATO defense ministers meeting. “We rely on facts.” Unfair? I agree it would Read more […]

FYI: The Bergdahls’ Pastor’s Testimony About Them

While I don’t condone any wrongdoing, I thought this testimony was something that people needed to know about regarding the Bergdahl family. Take it for what it is worth. I appreciate your asking about the Bergdahls. I’ve really been saddened about how the Christian community is jumping all over this. Here’s the deal… I pastored the Bergdahl family in 2003, prior to going to Uganda. We were very close, and remained so throughout my time in Uganda (I just found out this evening that apparently Read more […]

Hillary Clinton Jumps Off Obama Ship on Bergdahl-Taliban Deal

As I have mentioned, the State Department has been pushing for the release of the five Taliban prisoners for many years. This means that, at the time Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, she was involved in these negotiations and the pushing against those in the Pentagon who opposed the release. So now Clinton is trying to distance herself from the Obama Administration’s actions. According to the Daily Caller: Knowing an epic political disaster when she sees one, former Secretary of State Read more […]

Time Magazine: White House Released Taliban Leaders Despite Pentagon Resistance and Objections

According to this report, Barack Obama has been looking for ways to release those Taliban prisoners for some time. …officials in the Pentagon and intelligence communities had successfully fought off release of the five men in the past, officials tell TIME. “This was out of the norm,” says one official familiar with the debate over the dangers of releasing the five Taliban officials. “There was never the conversation.” Obama’s move was an ultimate victory for those at the White House Read more […]

Leftists Defend Barack Obama on Bowe Bergdahl: “Republicans Are Talking! Cover Your Ears!”

I have to admit, the outrage over Bowe Bergdahl made me wonder if there was some key piece of information was being left out of the equation. Did the Administration just trade Taliban leaders for a man who went AWOL? Well, now that I see responses from Gawker and Salon, I am pretty confident that there is no reason to fear. All they can say in response is that the testimony from fellow soldiers is being brought to the media by Republican strategists. Thus, we read in Gawker: Many soldiers Read more […]
