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?
