Bowe Bergdahl's Freedom means President Obama's Impeachment (Updated)

Republicans had been blocking efforts at freeing Bowe Bergdahl since 2010. Because Republican see the Military Servicemembers as little more than wooden chits on a RISK board which they are willing to let languish in terrorist's hands to advance their despicable agenda of Murder, Oppression, and theft of Trillions.
Michael Tomasky over at The Daily Beast believes Bergdahl will be used by Republicans to Impeach President Obama. I'm even tempted to say forget Benghazi—Bergdahl may well end up being the flimsy excuse for the impeachment hearings they’ve been dreaming of before all this is over.
"Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans. That incentive will put our forces in Afghanistan and around the world at even greater risk,” House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. McKeon (R-Calif.) and the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, James M. Inhofe (Okla.), said in a joint statement.

Congressman McKeon and Senator Inhofe accused President Obama of breaking the law releasing a statement Obama is required by law to notify Congress 30 days before any terrorists are transferred from the U.S. facility. They said Obama also is required to explain how the threat posed by such terrorists has been substantially mitigated.

Thanks, Obama! Now Terrorists are going to kidnap Americans! Impeach President Obama Now! Put up or Shut up! Your new found love for the Rule of Law needs must result in Articles of Impeachment. Congressman McKeon swear out the Articles of Impeachment and bring them to the House Floor.

The entire Conservative fart bubble blog-o-sphere stands behind you! Not only is President Obama's law breaking action criminal, he released 5 hardened terrorists (according to Right-Wing blogs who don't even know the names of the released) for Bowe Bergdahl, a POW* who is alleged to have been captured trying to desert and Faux News analyst Ralph Peters wished would be killed by the Taliban.

The Conservative Strategy has been to throw as many lies, innuendos and fake scandals at the Obama Administration because they know that even if when they are refuted, proven false or ignored the sheer weight of their unrighteous indignation is enough to cause Real Americans to throw their hands up declare a curse on both your houses and ignore the political process.

Which is what Republicans want; the less We, the People participate in elections and the political process the better it is for Republicans because when Americans vote in large numbers they vote against Republicans.

Especially, when the American People see the disrespect and evil disregard the Republican Party has for the military. The only Veteran conservatives love is a Dead Veteran. The Republican Party hates Veterans and the military unless they espouse the conservative principles of Oppression, Intolerance and Adulation for the Rich. Republicans especially disrespect and hate Veterans involved in politics unless they are Ultra-Reactionaries like Allen West or Ollie North.

And on the topic of Ollie North, the Republican Party is mad about the 5-to-1 trade because Saint Ronnie Raygun's policy was to trade military arms for hostages and use illegally obtained money to fund Reagan's Pro-Terrorist Policy outside of Congressional controls.
The way the first arms-for-hostages deal was designed, Israel would sell US-made weapons to Iran, and the US Government would replace Israel's weapons from its own stocks. As a favor to us, Israel was allowing itself to be used as a pass-through for America sending missiles to Iran. It was a shame the first arms shipment of ninety-six TOW antitank missiles to Iran ended up (and this was truly unfortunate, everybody agreed) in the hands of Khomeini's Revolutionary Guard. Worse, no hostage was released. It turned out to be arms-for-no-hostages. 
In spite of Reagan's high hopes, the second weapons delivery of more TOW missiles, also via Israel, shook loose only one hostage, and not the one [national security advisor Bud] McFarlane requested. 
In planning the third shipment, eighteen Hawk antiaircraft missiles, Reagan's operatives managed to piss off Portugal, endanger Turkey, get the CIA illegally involved, raise protests from the Defense Department, and move Secretary of State George Schultz to think about resigning... and all for nothing. 
Nearly six months and millions of dollars of weapons into the arms-for-hostages deal, Reagan had yet to inform Congress about the status or existence of the operation. (Drift Rachel Maddow pg. 103-104)

I suppose it's proper to talk about the Iran/Contra clusterfuck, so good on ya Gene. I don't understand why anyone would have a problem with getting this soldier out of Taliban hands after 5 years, but then I'm not a lunatic. Fox News wants him dead but I don't, and I'm happy to have him back where he belongs.

Patricia said...

Also getting rid of Guantanamo, might actually happen! I wonder how many want these detainees back? This poor U.S. soldier, broke down and cried when he got in the helicopter. I would too. Mostly because of these needless wars and these damn politicians that started it. They won't impeach the President they are incapable of any action.

WHackwhacker said...

I'm shocked (shocked!) the right wingers are finding something to bitch about, even when it involves the freedom of an American soldier. The fact that they blocked previous efforts to get him released is beyond despicable (but par for the course).

Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans.

yeah, so maybe not so much with the killing then? That MIGHT be a good thing, if our military are worth more alive than dead.

Bolton is a poopknob.

Couch-Borne Conservative Commandoes besmirch military members from the comfort of their computers and Television studios.

Conservatives love the Military but hate the Members who comprise it.

As to the complainant President Obama broke the law!1!!1! This shit-flinging is part and parcel of the Republican Party.

By throwing tantrums and crying wolf over and over and over again they hope to sew enough discontent amongst the American People that Real Americans throw up their hands and let them control the Nation like a parent giving in to a 2 year old.

Over at Talkingpointsmemo the newest Conservative assault on the Bergdahl's has many Right-Wing luminaries attacking Bob Bergdahl, the father of Bowe and Sarah 1/2 Guv Palin attacking President Obama because as she claims Bowe is "a soldier expressing horrid anti-American beliefs".

Gene, you've read Drift? Quoting from your own copy or one borrowed from the library. A book I might like to read, I think. As for this soldier who deserted, the Right reports that several soldiers were killed looking for him. Should he face charges for desertion? Maybe, but we should not have abandoned him. The president did the right thing.

Over on another site a blogger is giving Obama the "benefit of the doubt", thinking he might have plans to "smoke" the Gitmo detainees that were freed. But I was watching Rachel last night and she had on an expert that said he thought this was a good idea for emptying out Gitmo, seeing as Congress wouldn't let him do it any other way. I don't know if these 5 were among those cleared for release or not.

Grung_e_Gene said...

Reports are the 5 released were set to be released soon anyway. But, that will not stop the despicable right-wing from being despicable trash.

Pajamas Media, a "leading" Right-Wing disseminator of lies, back in Jan 2014 championed Bring POW Bergdahl Back by any means.

Now, they lead the charge that bringing back Bergdahl is somehow wrong.

And on Faux News Brian Kilmeade claims Bergdahl's father looks like "A Taliban" and Bill O'Reilly says he looks like "a muslim".

There is no depths to which conservative scumbags will not sink.

The impeachment petition is live!
Impeach Obama for Aiding Terrorists.

BTW, 3436 others have already signed this petition. Sign now to show your support! The petition references William Boykin, a Conservative "Christian" who was caught on a hot mic saying "Jews are the problem" and the "cause of all the problems in the world" and "that President Obama identifies with and supports Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood".

Grung_e_Gene said...

Retired Lt Gen Boykin is also the 'my god was bigger than there god because my god is real and there's is an idol', also called for a Military led-Coup last November,

"People I’ve spoken to would like to see the military ‘fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president.'"

But, Republicans will never impeach Obama. Impeachment will be the sultry burlesque dance Republican whores do in front of their violently stupid and actively ignorant conservative dupes to keep them coming back voting and funding Republicans.
