Obama Declares Open Season for Kidnapping Americans

Quote:

See if you can swallow his sanctimonious justification without running toward the nearest bathroom with your hand clamped over your mouth:

“Sergeant Bergdahl’s recovery is a reminder of America’s unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield,” Obama also said.

Tell that to Tyrone Woods. Tell it to Glen Doherty. Wait; you can’t, because they were left to die in Benghazi for reasons that have yet to be discovered. Well, tell it to their parents then.


Ready for more outrageous sanctimony? Here goes:

“The responsibility to make sure all of our men and women in uniform return from battle, especially those taken prisoner and held during war, is deeply personal to me, as someone who has worn the uniform of my country and as someone who was deeply involved in those efforts with respect to the unfinished business of the war in which I fought.” said Secretary of State John Kerry, who with Obama thanked Qatar officials [for brokering the deal].

The sheer nerve will take your breath away. While patriots were being tortured in the Hanoi Hilton, Hanoi John Kerry was safe at home after just a few months in Vietnam, denouncing them as war criminals in the most lurid terms imaginable. For his efforts on behalf of the enemy, Kerry is honored with a display at the War Remnants Museum (previously known as the War Crimes Museum) in Ho Chi Minh City.

Those remaining at Gitmo must be shot immediately. Otherwise all will be freed in the kidnapping epidemic Obama is likely to have set off.

American Soldier Who Served With Bowe Bergdahl Casts Doubt on Official Story; Fears Reprisal From Obama Administration


Will a soldier lie about his Afghanistan deployment? More importantly would the Obama administration?

The Wall Street Journal speculated that the downturn, which most economists believe will be short-lived, could have a lasting effect for President Obama and fellow Democrats up for midterm elections in November. According to WSJ, “Just 27% of Americans think the U.S. is headed in the right direction, compared with 63% who say things are on the wrong track.” In addition, the overall weakness of the economy is still being marked by lower wages and slow hiring, which leads to less consumer spending. According to Stanford University economist Robert Hall, “The probability of going negative is much higher when the economy is growing slowly and the growth rate is close to zero even before the hiccup.”


Do you see those stats? Isn't that enough to convince you that the nonsense liberals are spouting is not believable? 27 % are controlling the narrative. You can see the low percentage that actually buy the lies. No reason to think that lies on the internet are helping anything but a calculated propaganda machine known as the Obama administration .

re joint:'
You're making an unwarranted conclusion from the data. But then you do that all the time. you're preusming that the direction the nation is going refers only to what Obama is doing, when in fact it refers to everything the economy and the government are doing, and what is clear is that the nation thinks and has thought for years is that the GOP is screwing up and was reposnsible for trahing the world's economy, whose effects still linger (largely because of Republican intransigence), The GOP has been nothing but an obstruction to recovery, and continues to be so, which is why their politicians have such an abysmal level of support.

No, what is clear is that the economy is Obamas not the GOPs. Take a good look at the regulations that are chocking businesses. They have nothing to do with GOP policies.

And Frank-Dodd had much more to do with destroying the economy than the GOP ever did. But you keep lying, it is all you got left.

Revisionist history and economics get you nowhere, joint. They're so much horsepucky. The effects of the collapse are still there. Dod-Frank was an attempt to restore some of the oversight and regulation that kept the Depression from repeating itself for 70 years, until incessant GOP attacks repealed them, and it repeated itself. Fortunately Obama took steps to beat it back, which the GOP resisted tooth and nail, as they resisted job creation bills and pump priming. No, sorry, Republicans are the main factor impeding a more robust economic recovery and enabling the out-of-control greedy financial services sector to repeat their same mistakes (as witness the several multi-tens-of-billions scandals we've since in the last couple years). Once was more than enugh. Vote Republicans out of office.

Bullshit. The taxes and regulations imposed by Obama are the reason for the almost stagnant growth. And the sub prime loans the government forced banks to make(passed by Democratic Congress) caused the collapse.

@coldjoint,
Hey, ice brain, almost all politicians lie, but you're worse than the worst, because you don't have a brain.

From cnn.com.
Quote:
You might say lying is the verbal lubricant that keeps the Oval Office engine running. Some of our most popular presidents told the biggest whoppers, say historians, including Benjamin Ginsberg, author of "The American Lie: Government by the People and other Political Fables."
While preparing the country for World War II, Franklin Roosevelt told Americans in 1940 that "your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars."
President John F. Kennedy declared in 1961 that "I have previously stated, and I repeat now, that the United States plans no military intervention in Cuba." All the while, he was planning an invasion of Cuba.
Ronald Reagan told Americans in 1986, "We did not, I repeat, did not trade weapons or anything else [to Iran] for hostages, nor will we," four months before admitting that the U.S. had actually done what he had denied.
Even "Honest Abe," whose majestic "Gettysburg Address" the nation commemorated this week, was a skillful liar, says Meg Mott, a professor of political theory at Marlboro College in Vermont.
Lincoln lied about whether he was negotiating with the South to end the war. That deception was given extended treatment in "Steven Spielberg" recent film "Lincoln." He also lied about where he stood on slavery. He told the American public and political allies that he didn't believe in political equality for slaves because he didn't want to get too far ahead of public opinion, Mott says.
"He had to be devious with the electorate," Mott says. "He played slave-holders against abolitionists. He had to lie to get people to follow him. Lincoln is a great Machiavellian."

Not as regularly as Obama. And that is something that should not be acceptable. But idiots like yourself who don't value truth do not care.

And of the all the people who are supposedly ignoring me I get a response from the dumbest one.

Republicans are good at contradicting themselves. Here's another on Rand Paul from Yahoo News.
Quote:
"This latest assault on our economy by President Obama will destroy jobs here in Kentucky and across the country, and will hurt middle class families by hiking their utility bills and straining their budgets,” Paul said in a statement Monday after the Environmental Protection Agency announced an aggressive plan to cut carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2030. The administration’s proposed rule is aimed at curbing the effects of global warming by reducing the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere.

“The excessive rule is an illegal use of executive power, and I will force a vote to repeal it,” Paul said.

But comments the Kentuckian made six years ago may suggest he once shared views similar to Barack Obama's. While speaking at a rally for Ron Paul's first Republican presidential campaign in Chattanooga, Tenn., in February 2008, the younger Paul criticized coal for the pollution it causes and touted nuclear energy instead.


I'm just wondering how conservatives can keep their sanity from all this back and forth amongst themselves on so many issues. They must really live a confused life! LOL

And this is so terribly deprerssing. Job creation that would help the American people during a trying time, a period brought about by the GWB administration.......No wonder Rutgers University students occupied a building to protest Condoleezza Rice's proposed Commencement Exercise speech. GWB has created for the US so many long lasting enemies. Remember their shutting down the government because of Affordable Care Act which was already the law of the land....then desperately trying to force the US to fault on its national debt?! The prevailing Republican Party has morphed into the Tea Party....they are so uncaring and selfishly ambitious. The current Republican Party is an albatross around the American people's neck.

@Moment-in-Time,
That's because enough American people continue to vote them into office. The Tea Party provides what they vote for, so we can't complain that our government is broken. We have found the enemy....

Never mind that many of those who continue to vote for them are masochists.
1. Cut government welfare
2. Repeal ACA (they voted 54 times to repeal ACA)
3. Don't approve job creation legislation
4. Cut taxes for the rich (trickle down hasn't worked)
5. Cut extended unemployment benefits
6. Cut healthy food for our children in school
7. Don't support our troops (let them suffer in prison in a foreign country)
8. Repeal social security, and replace it with a self-investment scheme
9. Cut funding of our schools
10. Don't fund infrastructure repairs and construction
11. Cut veteran benefits
12. Stop or cut food stamps
13. Don't approve the debt ceiling to reduce our economy by over $50 billion dollars
14. Suppress voters from voting with government issued voter ID's
15. Gun rights have precedence over the lives of our children
16. Benghazi is more important than anything else our government can do
17. Keep voting for the same congress that has the worst record on passing legislation in the history of our country - and the worst performance rating
18. TNCFS

Republicans demand hearings in Congress over soldier's release


By Patricia Zengerle and David Alexander

(Reuters) - Republican lawmakers angered by a White House deal to swap five Taliban prisoners for a captured U.S. soldier in Afghanistan on Monday demanded hearings over why the Obama administration reached the agreement without consulting Congress.

Adding to criticism of the decision to negotiate the release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl were accusations by some soldiers who served with him that they consider Bergdahl a deserter who cost the lives of several comrades.

The State Department has said it considered Bergdahl "a member of the military who was detained while in combat" and the administration says members of Congress were briefed for years on efforts to free the Idaho native.

The Pentagon said it was unable to confirm media reports that six troops died trying to rescue Bergdahl and said circumstances surrounding his June 2009 disappearance were unclear.

"There have been several looks into the circumstances surrounding his disappearance, but we've never publicly said anything, primarily because we haven't had a chance to speak with Sergeant Bergdahl himself," said Army Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman.

Warren said Bergdahl was in stable condition at the U.S. Army's Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, where doctors were assessing his condition after five years of captivity.

Bergdahl, 28, has not yet spoken to his family, but will do so once he and psychologists believe the time is right, Warren said. He will return to the United States when doctors say he is ready.

Bergdahl, the sole American prisoner of war in Afghanistan, was released and flown to Germany on Sunday after being freed in a swap deal for five Taliban militants released from the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba for transfer to Qatar.

U.S. officials said that assurances from Qatar mitigated the threat potentially posed by shifting the detainees to the custody of the Gulf state.

Republican lawmakers said the White House action violated the law, had serious implications for national security and would lead to more Americans being held hostage.

'GREAT WEEK FOR THE TALIBAN'

"We need a thorough review of this decision," said Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican. "With President Obama's announcement of a total withdrawal (of U.S. forces) from Afghanistan by 2016 ... and now releasing five Taliban leaders, it's safe to say last week was a great week for the Taliban."

Texas Representative Mac Thornberry, vice chairman of the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee, said: "The president violated a provision of law in not giving Congress advanced notice. And while you can always argue that, 'well, this was an emergency, he needed to act quickly,' this pattern of violating the law is also a danger to national security."

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said briefings for members of Congress about Bergdahl had included the potential exchange for five Taliban militants. McDonough said the deal "should not have been a surprise" to lawmakers.

"We did not have 30 days to wait to get this done. And when you're commander-in-chief, you have to act when there's an opportunity for action," McDonough said at an event at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

A source close to Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai's palace in Kabul said Karzai was angry at being kept in the dark about the deal. "The president is now even more distrustful of U.S. intentions in the country," said the source, who declined to be identified.

"He is asking: How come the prisoner exchange worked out so well, when the Afghan peace process failed to make any significant progress?"

Karzai has backed peace talks with the Islamist group, which ruled Afghanistan between 1996 and 2001 and has fought a bloody insurgency since then against U.S.-led forces in the country.

The Taliban moved swiftly to dash hopes that the prisoner swap would rekindle negotiations. "It won't help the peace process in any way, because we don't believe in the peace process," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said on Sunday.

U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan James Cunningham told reporters in Kabul the Karzai administration had been made aware of the impending prisoners' swap.

"It's not behind the government's back. The government's known that we're trying to (do) this for a long time, and they agreed to it and they supported it," he said.

"The only thing that was not transparent to anybody was the actual timing," Cunningham said.

Oh, Ci, I'm very aware of the GOP agenda. The truth of the matter is the GOP is afraid of change. The US is undergoing a demographic change and the older GOP establishment are at their wits end to do anything about this.....they simply cannot stop the tide.....but still they try. Obama shattered the glass ceiling for minorities pertaining to the US Presidency, and in the minds of the Republicans this was too devastating to bear. There are so many against Obama simply for who he is that they would rather do absolutely nothing than see him triumph with a successful administration. Even in the rural areas many poor whites would rather do without the only health insurance available to them than partake of the ACA. The GOP refuse to touch the Immigration bill that will allow many Latinos to become citizens for fear they will soon be replaced by these very same groups. What we're witnessing on display is the Republican Face of Fear! This image of the GOP lowering itself to such ignoble levels, reminds one of the most despicable mean-spirited greedy party that could possibly be. They are striving for the US to become an oligarchy with the rich in control of a few powerful white men......it could happen with the Koch limitless billions.
