Uniform Code of Military Injustice

Published

on

Today, in an utter travesty of justice, traitor and deserter Bowe Bergdahl was sentenced to a dishonorable discharge, but no prison time. In 2009 Bergdahl Left his post in Afghanistan after making several statements favorable to the Taliban. 6 US Soldiers were killed and several others wounded searching for Bergdahl.

Years ago, before he was recovered, there was something of a social media movement to get Bergdahl back. Known on Twitter for my veterans causes, some people privately asked me why I never supported the recovery of Bergdahl. I couldn’t specify why because the information I had came from classified intelligence briefings, but I just said he wasn’t someone we wanted back.

How did I know and why did I have access to those briefings? I was there. I was in RC East of Afghanistan when Bergdahl went missing. My unit handled the overflow of patients from the search for him. We had enough horrible injuries to deal with from normal operations, but to have them added to over this was too much. I didn’t tell my staff, even my officers, what was going on or why they were looking for this guy. Why burden them I figured?

I’ve carried this with me for years.

When President Obama traded 5 top-level Taliban for Bergdahl I was utterly disgusted. To me that was a treasonous act. Obama HAD to know what I did, probably even better than I did, right?

When Susan Rice went on the Sunday talk shows and said Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction” I nearly vomited.

Today Bergdhal will walk away a free man. He’ll get a dishonorable discharge, but he’ll spend no time in prison. As I write these words I again feel like I want to vomit. For those that have read my last article you know my old emotional war wounds have been reopened. Today doesn’t help.

But I don’t blame the Obama Administration for today’s travesty of justice. I partially blame the Judge, but only a little bit. The judge has hinted for some time that there has been undo command influence from the Commander-in-Chief.

He’s not wrong. Donald Trump’s propensity for word vomit on Twitter and during rallies may appeal to the lowest common denominator of his base, but out here in the real world the words of the President of the United States has very real consequences.

This week, after the deadly Islamic terror attack now New York, Trump took to Twitter to pontificate on his belief that the perpetrator should receive the death penalty. The only thing Trump’s tweet guaranteed was that whatever the punishment will be, it won’t be that.

Famous men in history are often quoted, but sometimes the most impactful things in speech were the things those great men and women THOUGHT but chose not to say, because they knew that by speaking they would cause harm. Trump has no brain/mouth filter, and his lack of self-restraint similar to that of an 11 year-old boy will ascertain that more travesties of justice are done.

As for Bowe Bergdahl, I’m sure that by this time next week he will have a verified account on Twitter with 85K followers, and will be speaking out on bogus social justice issues alongside fellow traitor Bradley (Chelsea) Manning. It wouldn’t wouldn’t surprise me if the Democrats have the both of them running for office before long. After all, when liberal talk about “supporting the troops” they mean those like Bergdahl and Manning. they don’t mean vets like me, and they CERTAINLY don’t mean the ones we couldn’t bring home, unless of course they can use any of us to score political points.

Trump and Reagan joking about starting a war

Trump makes final pitch for Roy Moore in Tweet

Let us make one thing clear. America usually has never been the ones to start an attack, although the Iraq war after 9/11 might have been the sole exception. However, when we are attacked we don’t roll over and ask for “another one.” We fight back.

When Reagan said; “I’m pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes;” it was meant to be taken as a joke. The left can dish it out, but they can’t take it in. The media used the term ‘Star Wars,’ not Ronald Reagan himself.

Trump made it clear to North Korean’s Kim Jong Un to not try to blow the United States of America sky high without paying the consequences to what could happen to his hell hole that he rules over. “North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

Don’t go their ‘Rocket Man,’ because we shall not roll over and play dead like many progressives want us to do regarding their idols. Most of these idols are tyrants that they wish they could be, and that includes ‘Fat Boy” as Mark Levin likes to call Kim Jong Un. Meanwhile, the left still pushes the welfare state, because wealth redistribution and the promise to “take care of you” is their only way to buy votes and gain power.

P.S. if you progressives are so concerned about despicable people in the White House, how about JFK (and his sexual orgies), Bill Clinton (sex in the Oval Office itself), and yes Barack Obama (for being the Marxist punk that he is). For all of Trump’s shortcomings, it seems that Trump is keeping the White House clean while he is there if you know what I mean.

Levin: Trump was channeling Reagan with ‘nuclear button’ tweet

https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/levin-trump-channeling-reagan-nuclear-button-tweet/The Left’s hysterical response to President Trump’s now-infamous “nuclear button” tweet aimed at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is just that: Hysterical. So said LevinTV host Mark Levin on his national radio program Wednesday night.

At the beginning of the segment, Levin compared Trump’s tweet to a quip from President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election campaign where the Gipper joked, “I’m pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.”

WTF MSM!? #NuclearButtonGate has the media in a tizzy

https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/wtf-msm-nuclearbuttongate-media-tizzy/Is there a button? … Yesterday, in response to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s declaration that he has a button to launch nukes, Donald Trump tweeted in response:

The Trump Derangement Syndrome-fueled responses were expected. But this morning a new narrative began to emerge: Trump’s tweet was factually incorrect. You see, there isn’t a button to launch U.S. nuclear weapons. It is more of a process. It began with a “fact-check” by the Associated Press, and now others like CNN’s Chris Cillizza are piling on. These folks know exactly what Trump meant, and calling it a nuclear button is a long-standing literary device. Pedantic attacks like this show just how biased and petty the media is.

“They act like the greatest insult to human dignity and the presidential regime that has ever happened,” Limbaugh chided during his daily radio program, adding the remark that it “wouldn’t cause a ripple in your average Twitter sewer.”

Michael Mullen, Obama’s chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on the 2009 Iran protests

Michael Mullen Obamas chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on the 2009 Iran protests

Iran is going through several days of strong protests against the regime over economic oppression and lack of rights. President Trump has expressed immediate and unwavering support for the protesters. The same cannot be said the last time there were similar protests in 2009 when President Obama chose to side with the nation he’d hoped would solidify his foreign policy legacy.

His former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Michael Mullen, made a comment that appeared to demonstrate the weakness of the administration back then. While not explicitly attacking the President, his words left room for us to read between the lines:

“I think we chose to not be as supportive as we could have been then. And I hope we can be right now so that Iran can continue to evolve.”

Former Obama Official: US ‘Chose to Not Be as Supportive’ of 2009 Iranian Protesters

He told ABC News that he hopes President Donald J. Trump is “supportive of more freedoms in that country.”

Host Martha Raddatz asked Mullen his opinion regarding President Trump’s response to the recent Iranian protests. Mullen was supportive and made key distinctions between how President Obama handled the situation in 2009 and how President Trump is in present day.

Trump has a point: North Korea should have been dealt with long ago

Trump has a point North Korea should have been dealt with long ago

President Trump Tweeted a video pointing out four facts. 23-years-ago, President Clinton made a bad deal with North Korea that directly led to the situation we’re in today. 18-years-ago, Trump called for action against North Korea before it’s too late. A month ago, Jennifer Griffin reported on Fox News that their missile technology may be able to reach the continental United States. Lastly, James Mattis recently declared we’re working with South Korea to counter the threat.

The video doesn’t do much to help the situation other than asserting that the President was right well before he was President. It’s a good ego stroke, as Trump often does for himself, but it’s also a reminder that the situation we’re in could have been handled more easily before they had a petulant leader who may have his fingers on the nuclear button.

This does less to help in the North Korea situation than to remind us the situation that’s currently brewing in Iran. The similarities are striking. A weak U.S. President made a deal with radical leaders of a nation that hates us in an effort to slow down nuclear proliferation. On one hand, the moves may have been effective in slowing them down, but in both cases it’s being demonstrated that slowing them down does not mean preventing them. If anything, it hurts our ability to put an end to the threats before they become tangible.

It’s tangible now in North Korea. It may be tangible soon, if not already, in Iran. Both nations need to be dealt with soon before they turn their threats into actions.
