Trade Relations, 5 Terrorists for 1 Deserter

When Obama defended his exchange of 5, count’em, FIVE! Taliban Jihadists for 1 US Army deserter, I’m sure he still had hopes that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl would turn out to be a hero. As Obama’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice said, Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”

She also touted the lie that Benghazi was due to a video.

National Security Advisor?

What the hell?

In the news this week, we find that according to the Pentagon, the Army will pursue a case of misconduct regarding Mr. Bergdahl, charging him with desertion.

When Obama gives away five terrorists for – as now it would seem, a deserter – one must wonder about our Commander in Chief’s loyalty to America at the most, and his I.Q. at the least!

There is a growing number of people that believe our President is a closet Muslim. I’m not saying I do, just saying it’s there, and it’s getting more validation with each blind-faith statement Obama gives.

Okay okay, let’s say for the sake of argument that Obama is indeed, a Christian, as he claims to be. Let’s line it up, here.

He was the bloodiest pro-abortion Senator we’ve had to date, even voting against The Born Alive Act when he was in the Chicago senate.

Hmmm . . . Christian?

He’s “evolved” his view on homosexuality, saying that now – unlike when he was running for President – he’s in favor of gay marriage.

Heck, what Christian wouldn’t be?

He said, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.

And he was real broken up about that.

He went on a public tirade, denigrating Christianity, saying that the Bible, “. . . suggests slavery’s okay” and said of the sermon on the mount that, “The defense department wouldn’t survive its application.” Oh, wait . . . that last one wasn’t mocking Christianity, it was mocking America.

Sorry Barack.

Real ‘Jesus Freak’ ain’t he?

He has physically bowed – yes, literally bent over at the waist – to Islamic leaders, he’s absolutely refused to use the words, ‘Islamic terrorists’ or ‘Jihadists’ or ‘Muslim extremists’, he’s declared that, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” and he’s gone out of his way to drill into our heads to ad nauseam levels, that these terrorists ARE NOT ISLAMIC!

All this with the Paris terrorists declaring “Muhammed is revenged” after killing 12 French cartoonists for denigrating Islam’s prophet.

But let’s be fair. We don’t want to sell the President short. We have to admit, Obama has also demanded that we don’t paint all Christians with the broad brush of religious radicalism by the despicable actions of the Westborough Baptists.

Uh . . . no. Not a word.

But back to Bergdahl, Michael Crowley of TIME said,

. . . a recent (and subsequently deleted) tweet in which Bowe Bergdahl’s father, Robert Bergdahl wrote: “I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners. God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen.” [sic]

There is some evidence that Bowe Bergdahl was trying to aid the terrorists against America,

“At least two of them (Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers), Sgt. Evan Beutow and Spc. Josh Fuller, have been willing to go on the record with well-founded suspicions that Bergdahl actively collaborated with the Taliban.”

Oh, but Brandon Friedman, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at the Department of Housing and Urban Development said,

“What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership?”

Well, sure, stands to reason that the guys who DIDN’T walk away from their posts are psychopaths, and the one that DID is just misunderstood.

Good eye, Friedman.

There is an email from Sgt. Bergdahl to his father saying,

“These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid, that they have no idea how to live.”

In defending his release of the five terrorists for Bergdahl, Obama said,

“The United States has always had a pretty sacred rule, and that is we don’t leave our men or women in uniform behind.”

Hey Obama, I don’t recall, maybe you can help me with this. Were those soldiers in Benghazi wearing a uniform at the time you ordered them to “Stand down” when they asked you for help as they were fighting for their – and their fellow Government workers – lives? Yeah, you remember, four dead under your watch when you refused to send a flyover to save them. Can you check on their sartorial status and get back to me?


So, what we gave away was five terrorists who can return to the fight for Allah singing the Jihad Jingle, and what we got in return was someone who decided to run FROM the fight for freedom, getting six other soldiers killed in the process of looking for him.

Trade relations? You say Mr. President that you want more authority regarding trade relations?

Uh . . . yeah, sorry big guy. I don’t think so.
