Bradley Manning on Veteran’s Day: an abysmal insult

I would customarily have posted an article in direct reference to Veteran’s Day in honor of the men and women who have served the United States of America.

Veterans Day is a U.S. legal holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, then known as “the Great War.” Commemorated in many countries as Armistice Day the following year, November 11th became a federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became legally known as Veterans Day.

Happy 242nd Birthday to the US Marine Corps as well, on November 10th, in this message from the Marine Corps Commandant.

Today, instead, I want to point to an item deemed “newsworthy” by a number of outlets in order to illustrate the depths to which we have plummeted as a nation and — in another illustrative post following this one — the depths with which individuals believe they have no responsibility or accountability whatsoever for their predicaments whilst, conversely, everyone else is responsible.

Bradley Manning, whom I refuse to quantify as “Chelsea,” served seven years for leaking over 700,000 secret US military and diplomatic documents to Wikileaks during the Iraq War. He was arrested in 2010. On January 17, 2017, President Obama commuted all but four months of Manning’s remaining time from his original 35-year sentence.

This effeminate, gender-neutral, politically-correct, confused, entitled, arrogant, betraying, self-centered, naive, haughty, esteem-ridden POS joined the military?

From the UKDailyMail.com:

Chelsea Manning speaks out on Veterans Day to tell lawmakers to stop sending soldiers overseas for their ‘to support their nationalist fairy tales’

by Abigail Miller

  • Chelsea Manning took to Twitter to hit out at lawmakers early on Veterans Day  

  • She wrote that support would be to ‘stop sending us overseas to kill or be killed for your nationalist fairy tales’  

  • The 29-year-old is likely referring to how she feels that the military disregards the effects of war on civilians 

  • She made that opinion clear in 2013 when she was convicted of publishing more than 700,000 classified military and diplomatic documents via Wikileaks 

Chelsea Manning hit out at lawmakers on Veterans Day on Twitter with her opinion on how to best support former soldiers. 

‘Want to support veterans?! stop sending us overseas to kill or be killed for your nationalist fairy tales. we can do better,’ she tweeted. 

The tweet is likely referring to her opinion about the state of the military, which she made clear when she published more than 700,000 classified military and diplomatic documents via Wikileaks in 2013.

The move saw her sentenced to 35 years in prison, which was later commuted to seven years beginning with the date of her arrest by President Obama just days before he left office. 

After she was convicted she said she was proud of what she’d done, because she wanted to expose what she considered to be US military’s disregard of the effects of war on civilians.

Stop. We know how the US government has abused our veterans and how it continues to do so because of underfunding, poor management and overwatch. Granted. The Underground Professor, Dr Michael Jones, documented on my Thursday night show (listen and watch here) the continuing challenges and problems faced by veterans today up to and including inordinate and onerous wait times and demands, abuse and even deaths.

But that is no reason to kneecap the US military and the strength of our nation. We should always be circumspect prior to the application of the US military around the planet. Never forget it was the Demorats under Barack Hussein Obama who decided to literally overthrow countries in the Middle East. Obama became known as the Drone Strike Master yet received no scrutiny from the American Media Maggots over this. He lied about the application of forces and lies about sacrificing American lives for his

Listen to this cut from Fox News and Bradley Manning.

That said, there are a few things that I immediately conclude.

First, Manning didn’t mind getting paid by the very same US military that hired him and trained him in the first place. His base motivation was to receive GI Bill money for education and to use the Army as personal social engineering. Service and sacrifice didn’t factor in the slightest.

Does this not seem like another Leftist demanding free shite from the American Taxpayer and then biting the hands that provided same?

You must realize it was your tax dollars that paid for Manning’s hormone therapy. As far as he was concerned, he was due this. It was owed to him. He also believed that gender reassignment surgery was due to him as well.

Luckily, the American Taxpayer did not have to pay for Manning’s GRS and now that bill will have to be paid when affordable. Note this:

On May 22, 2017, Manning’s 2014 lawsuit seeking a federal court to order the Defense Department to provide hormone therapy and other treatment for her gender identity condition was dismissed because, her ACLU attorney explained, “she is free.”

Confirmed from the UKIndependent.com:

Chelsea Manning will lose transgender benefits after leaving military prison, says US Army

by Maya Oppenheim

The former soldier was a candidate for gender-reassignment surgery funded by the Pentagon’s new policy for transgender troops

The Army have said Chelsea Manning will lose her military healthcare benefits following President Barack Obama’s decision to free her from prison.

In his final days in office, the outgoing President has issued 64 pardons and 209 commutations, including granting the release of Manning. The transgender US Army private, who was jailed in 2010 after handing thousands of secret documents to WikiLeaks, will now be freed on 17 May instead of her scheduled 2045 release.

A spokeswoman for the Army said Manning, who came out as transgender a day after her 2013 sentencing, would relinquish her entitlement to military transgender benefits.

Damn. I would submit those are dollars well saved.

  • Consider this: what happens to this nation when the parasites outnumber the hosts?
  • What happens when those who demand Free Cheese outnumber those who produce said cheese?
  • What happens when no one can repair those Free Cheese machines because they have been so focused on being the recipients?

What happens when there is no more felt duty to serve one’s country?

And Demorats think Trump’s lost his marbles?

Fig. 1: Nancy Pelosi meeting with Russians. Remember, Nancy Pelosi insists she never met with any Russians.

I think they’d best turn that all-encompassing marble-like eye inwards and examine their own House Minority Leader, Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi, whose blathering is all too evident in this video, displaying actual marble loss.

Pelosi had lost track of time, of day, of the issue at hand, but had a firm grasp on gibberish.

As Pelosi approached the podium on Thursday, she muttered to herself on the hot mic, “It’s afternoon. It is afternoon. Good afternoon everyone.”

She then immediately got confused about what time of day it was.

“Thank you for being here. I’m honored this morning, or now afternoon…” she said. She went on to refer to her Democratic colleague as the “chairman” of a committee, before correcting herself and calling him the “ranking member.”

Going off script proved to be a disaster.

While denouncing Republican attempts to replace Obamacare, Pelosi said, “And what does that mean? Higher costs, fewer benefits, uh, terrible age tax undermining Medicare, uh, uh, stealing from Medicare and Maid-icaid, as I should have said,” mispronouncing the word.

But no, Pelosi’s just fine. Nothing to see here. Instead, it’s Donald Trump who’s the nutter and who must be removed under the 25th Amendment. From the UKDailyMail.com:

Two dozen Democrats get behind bill to lay foundation for removing Trump for being mentally ‘incapacitated’ (but they’d need Mike Pence to agree)

by David Martosko

  • 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows Congress to set up a medical commission that could determine if a president is fit for office
  • The president’s cabinet is also allowed to serve that purpose, but Congress has never established its own group to participate
  • Either panel would require the vice president to agree before Congress could vote to remove the president
  • A Maryland Democratic congressman is trying to set up a commission to target President Trump, tweeting: ‘Trump’s mental incapacity is no laughing matter’
  • Plan has only attracted Democratic cosponsors so far
  • Senate that passed 25th Amendment agreed ‘inability’ meant a ‘mental debility’ rendering a president ‘unable or unwilling to make any rational decision’

A Democratic congressman has proposed convening a special committee of psychiatrists and other doctors whose job would be to determine if President Donald Trump is fit to serve in the Oval Office.

Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who also teaches constitutional law at American University, has predictably failed to attract any Republicans to his banner.

But the U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment does allow for a majority of the president’s cabinet, or ‘such other body as Congress may by law provide,’ to decide if an Oval Office occupant is unable to carry out his duties – and then to put it to a full congressional vote.

Vice President Mike Pence would also have to agree, which could slow down the process – or speed it up if he wanted the levers of power for himself.

The 25th Amendment has been around since shortly after the John F. Kennedy assassination, but Congress has never formed its own committee in case it’s needed to judge a president’s mental health.

Why is Donald Trump insane in the eyes of the Demorats, you ask? Because he dares to defend himself against baseless accusations and has had to do so since installation as president on January 20th of this year.

He is under assault daily by politicians, the DC Beltway Elite EstabliHacks on both sides of the aisle, the American Media Maggots, Demorats, Leftists, Progressives, Anarchists, so-called “celebrities” and GOWPs across the pond in the European Union who hate that Trump refuses to kowtow to their Globalist, Socialist, United Nations-driven One World Barbecue demands.

Let’s get back to honesty and clarity, shall we? Let’s put ourselves back on the ground and deal with reality. The primary motivating factor behind everything the DC Establihacks, Demorats, Leftists and the American Media Maggots are doing is this: they have not yet transitioned over to November 9th of 2016. They are still stuck on Tuesday, November 8th. They cannot believe — and will not believe — that Donald Trump is now the 45th President of the United States.

All their well-placed, entrenched, corruptive plans found themselves cast aside because the rabble, the commoners, the groundlings, the proles, the serfs, the unwashed filth like you and me had the temerity not to vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton. It’s not fair they wailed! It was her turn, they babbled!

Donald Trump is a bare-knuckled fighter. He is a business brawler. He isn’t politically correct and he’s crass and sometimes rude, brusque, crude and cringeworthy. But he is everything but insane. Or perhaps the phrase “crazy like a fox” comes to mind.

He is doing what people elected him to do. At least attempt to drain the swamp and to turn DC upside down. He is upsetting most everyone’s well-groomed and cultivated, lengthy tenure at the government tit, Taxpayer Milk flying everywhere.

Tits, tits, tits, the DC EstabliHacks cannot be removed from their government tits! Think of the loss, the carnage, the people who might actually have to be accountable and hold a modicum of responsibility! Who might actually have to do some — work! Who might actually have to — gulp — produce some kind of measurable work product! Oh the pain, the pain, the unmitigated potential pain!

The milk must flow because the Free Cheese must be made as, with the Free Cheese, also come the all-hallowed, almighty vote!

The spice must flow, and the spraying Taxpayer Milk must continue unabated at all costs! At every cost! They must fight, I tell you! They must fight for their phony-baloney jobs. They are fighting for their very lives.

And fight they will. Fight they must. Everything in their world is at stake.

Didacticity over. Temporarily. Until my next post.

Regulated to death under Obama

Not only has Barack Hussein Obama defecated in the upcoming punchbowl of President-elect Donald Trump, he has done so to America for years but even more pointedly in the past month.

The situation can be issue-dependent as it is with Israel — Obama despises both Israel and Benjamin Netanyahu — but in general Obama fully expected Hillary Rodham Clinton to waltz into office on November 8th. When that didn’t occur, Obama knew he had to jack up the pace of his “legacy” geometrically because he expected HRC to continue his social engineering in the form of a proverbial third Obama term. To Obama these last-minute actions serve dual purposes: to kick the upcoming Trump administration in the crotch and to realize more Leftist objectives.

If you look closely, however, you realize that not only did Obama not just “allow” but push for the federal government to remove the rights of citizens and then sell them back, but it gave stellar influence, authority, dominion and unbridled power to faceless and unaccountable bureaucrats, none of whom were elected in any fashion, unlike Congress, and who are essentially answerable to no one.

From the WashingtonExaminer.com:

Obama unleashes 3,853 regs, 18 for every law, record 97,110 pages of red tape

by Paul Bedard

President Obama‘s lame duck administration poured on thousands more new regulations in 2016 at a rate of 18 for every new law passed, according to a Friday analysis of his team’s expansion of federal authority.

While Congress passed just 211 laws, Obama’s team issued an accompanying 3,852 new federal regulations, some costing billions of dollars.

The 2016 total was the highest annual number of regulations under Obama. Former President Bush issued more in the wake of 9/11.

Gosh. Nothing like micro-managing. Have you ever had a micro-manager for a boss? Did you enjoy it? Admire them? Or was every day a piece of festering crap?

This cartoon from the New Yorker is a perfect illustration of how Leftists feel about us rabble, us commoners, proles, serfs, groundlings.

“These smug pilots have lost touch with regular passengers like us.
Who thinks I should fly the plane?”

The point being that the passenger represents you, me, the unwashed conservative populist rabble, and the pilots represent your highly trained and competent Leftist US government under Obama. Leftists mandate that we must have complete confidence in the pilot because, as the government, it can give us snacks, drinks. Pilots require actual skills, training, education, experience. The pilot makes all that Free Cheese happen.

In other words: you morons, you step into the cockpit and you jeopardize everyone’s safety. Our Free Cheese. Our snacks. Our drinks.

Leftists insist: we’re making these rules, these regulations, away from Congress because we absolutely must have them and that damned silly Constitution, Bill of Rights and “checks and balances” keep getting in the way.

The annual “Unconstitutional Index” from Clyde Wayne Crews, CEI’s vice president for policy, said that it was much higher under Obama than under former President George W. Bush.

“The multiple did tend to be higher during Obama administration. Bush’s eight years averaged 20, while Obama’s almost-eight have averaged 29,” said his report, first provided to Secrets.

His index is meant to show that it is the federal bureaucracy, not Congress, that levies the most rules. “There’s no pattern to any of this, since the numerators and denominators can vary widely; there had been 114 laws in 2015, and a multiple of 39. The multiple can be higher with fewer laws, or with more regulations, holding the other constant. The point is that agencies do the bulk of lawmaking, no matter the party in power,” he wrote.

Holy mother of God. Read that again: “The point is that agencies do the bulk of lawmaking, no matter the party in power.”

Let’s just look at a few of the EPA rules.

And so much more.

All of this foolishness and micro-managing has to stop. Because, with just a pen — like Obama — Trump can remove this:

■ Many environmental mandates, including limits on formaldehyde use and stricter truck fuel efficiency rules;
■ A Food and Drug Administration ban on the sale of antibacterial soaps;
■ A requirement that federal contractors provide paid sick leave for their workers;
■ Stricter consumer protections on prepaid debit cards;
■ Federal loan forgiveness for students at schools that shut down;
■ A rule that bars nursing homes that receive federal funding from requiring residents to resolve all disputes through arbitration, rather than in court.

Just a start. Please read this piece from the Cato Institute about Executive Orders.

I repeat, direct from the Department of Redundancy Dept: Obama gave stellar influence, authority, dominion and unbridled power to faceless and unaccountable bureaucrats, none of whom were elected in any fashion, unlike Congress, and who are essentially answerable to no one.

And it would seem that is part and parcel of Obama’s Legacy.

A legacy that Donald Trump can and should overturn.

Leftist insanity: drug test those who get tax deductions

Bernie Sanders Free ShitJust when you think Leftists cannot get more inane, they get more inane.

From Patch.com (a Leftist/HuffPo-sourced site):

Wisconsin Lawmaker Wants to Drug Test Those Seeking Tax Deductions

by Feroze Dhanoa

Congresswoman Gwen Moore introduced the bill as a response to nationwide efforts by Republicans to drug test welfare recipients.

A Wisconsin lawmaker has introduced a bill in Congress that would require those seeking tax deductions to undergo drug tests as a response to nationwide efforts by Republicans to drug test social welfare recipients.

Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) introduced the Top 1% Accountability Act on Thursday requiring all those claiming itemized deductions in any year over $150,000 to undergo drug tests or take lower standard deductions. The Guardian points out the requirement would only fall on households with a yearly federal adjusted gross income of more than $1m.

Gwen Moore WisconsinOh my, I cannot wait to respond to this.

The bill is a retort to Republicans in several states including Wisconsin where the recipients of certain welfare benefits have to undergo drug tests. In Wisconsin, Gov. Scott Walker signed off on a rule in November to start drug testing welfare recipients and is currently suing the federal government to drug test food stamp recipients, as federal law prohibits states from imposing any additional eligibility conditions on food stamp recipients. He has even approved a rule which requires those seeking unemployment benefits to undergo drug tests. Walker has defended the requirements, saying they help ensure a drug free workforce.

And further, it ensures that for those who want Moar Free Cheese have at least some form of accountability.

But accountability is absolutely anathema to Leftists.  This cannot be tolerated in the slightest.

“Free” should mean free of any responsibilities whatsoever.

Leftists make no differential between those who pay into the system — hosts — versus those who do nothing but take from the system — parasites.

No dispute exists that there are literally generational families who have done nothing but take from the system.  Real, actual, honest human beings want to get off the System of Suck and become independent themselves.  Generational parasites, enabled and promoted by Leftists and Demorats, not only do not desire independence but seek greater amounts of Free Cheese.

Then claim “victim status” when they are challenged.

When one receives Moar Free Cheese from the federal government — or a state or local government — there should necessarily be an attached responsibility for same.  That something so simple as to be unaddicted is so vehemently challenged merely proves the depth and breadth of entitlement expectations in this country.

To the point where, as regaled above, the ridiculous, the Kabuki Theater, the insane, intrudes.  Proffered by Leftists.  When it’s stupid, when it’s unsustainable, when it’s beyond politically correct, when it’s dangerous, when it’s morally wrong, you can be guaranteed it’s an idea from Demorats and Leftists.

Again, the federal government believes, and worse, acts as though the dollars you make belong not to you, but to them, absolutely and incontrovertibly.

There are parasites in this nation who not only do not pay taxes, they acquire refund checks from the government.  The nation has already reached a point where 45.3% pay no federal income tax whatsoever.  Can you say “tipping point”?

Ladies and gentlemen, there are bad times coming.  I suspect civil unrest; perhaps severe civil unrest.  Just how that unrest is addressed and adjudicated will point the clear path for the future of this country.  I believe it is not bombastic or immoderate to suggest that the fate of our nation will be decided in the next two years.

“If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify.

Paul Ryan: “I don’t want to be speaker”

Ryan & ObamaAnd then he became Speaker of the House.

Paul Ryan says he doesn’t want to be a presidential candidate.

But for a guy who says he doesn’t want to be a presidential candidate, he’s making a lot of speeches about not wanting to be a presidential candidate.  A certain Bill Shakespeare line comes to mind about now.

The GOP is pretty much already convinced that it’s going to lose the presidency.

If it’s Trump or Hillary, the GOP wants Hillary.

If it’s Cruz or Hillary, the GOP wants Hillary.

They just don’t have the testicles to come out openly and say it.

GOP InvertebrateThe GOP believes Trump or Cruz lose to Hillary.  They’re planning on it.

The GOP is thinking, hell, we may as well lose with “our guy,” whomever “our guy” might turn out to be.

This is American Politics, ladies and gentlemen, politics writ large, and politics writ Establishment.  This is the Old Guard Establishment GOP doing everything it can to ensure one of the Usual Suspects gets into the race.  The GOP mostly consists of an assload of Surrender Monkeys.

GOP RINO FactsFirst the GOP was shocked that Jeb Bush didn’t resonate.  They were sure he was going to walk right into the presidency. Maybe even Mittens.  VP?

Meb Bushney 2016Then each one of their other mealy-mouthed do-nothing empty suits fell by the wayside, including Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Lindsay Graham, George Pataki and Jim Gilmore.  Hell, my dead cat Mose would have had a better chance at president than Jim Gilmore.

Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, John Kasich, Carly Fiorina, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, Scott Walker, Rick Perry — they persevered a while longer until it shook out to the final three.

Read carefully what Paul Ryan said on Tuesday:

Count me out: I simply believe that if you want to be the nominee for our party to be the president, you should actually run for it.  I chose not to do this, therefore I should not be considered. Period. End of story.

So what is Paul Ryan really saying?

He’s saying there needs to be a back up plan, and that back up plan should include someone from the Old Staid Establishment GOP.

Who ran for president.

Hey.

Wait.

Wouldn’t that be a Jeb Bush or a Mitt Romney or a Lindsay Graham or a Mike Huckabee or a Jeb Bush or a Jeb Bush?

Hey, what about Jeb Bush?

GOP Fat Cat Old Guard Establishment

You know, I think Jeb Bush might be available.  At a moment’s notice.  He speaks Spanish.  He loves him some illegal immigrants.  Syrians too, I’m sure.  Come one, come all, no background checks, it’s an “act of love.”

But wait.  Paul Ryan said we need a rule.  A new rule.  Delegates, we need a new rule.  A rule that says to be the nominee, you need to have run in the primary.  You need to have been an actual candidate.

Speaking of Paul Ryan, there is the Super Chapter 9.  Ryan wants to go along to get along.  And bail out PUERTO RICO with American tax dollars.

Look, I don’t trust ANY politician any more.  Trusting a politician is a fool’s game and this country is already rife with a sufficient number of Free Cheese Fools.

Charles Krauthammer thinks that Ryan is just trying to rebuild the party early, seeing its destruction in progress.

But the bottom line?  If Paul Ryan pulls the Lucy Football on his own denial, I won’t be gobsmacked.  He’s done it before, he can do it again.  Think: speaker.

BZ

P.S.

53% of those polled think Paul Ryan is lying when he says he won’t accept the presidential nomination according to a Fox poll displayed on the Greta Susteren show, Tuesday.

You brought this on yourselves, GOP.
