    Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban. The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ” That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for...

    The Washington Post’s Philip Bump (full disclosure my former CNN colleague) is one of the first -- or maybe so far the only -- journalist at a mainstream media outlet to get what is seriously disquieting news for the mainstreamers. Here’s Phil’s headline: Trump’s already largely won his war against the media Phil begins his story this way: The choice that President Trump asks America to make is a simple one and one that he’s demanded since he jumped into the presidential race. Who are you going to believe, he asks: An industry of people whose jobs depend on presenting...

  • How America’s Colonel Kurtz Beat Back North Korea

    dailycaller.com ^ | Blaine Harden
    Donald Nichols, an Air Force spy in Korea at the dawn of the Cold War, was the best and worst kind of American warrior. Ferocious, creative and unbreakable, he won more than 20 medals for valor during the Korean War and vacuumed up battlefield secrets that saved countless American lives. Yet Nichols was callow, untrained and very young—just 23—when he arrived on the Korean Peninsula. He was a seventh-grade dropout. He was virtually unsupervised. He would soon veer out of control, losing touch with morality, with legality, even with sanity—if Air Force psychiatrists are to be believed. He attended mass...

    American Thinker ^ | October 22, 2017 | Jack Hellner
    Here are a few questions for Loretta Lynch that reporters, Democrats and many Republicans are afraid to ask because they won't like the answers: Why did you threaten the FBI informant on the uranium deal with jail if he told Congress and the public what he knew? Should Eric Holder, Hillary and the Obama administration have approved the uranium deal to Russia knowing that they were under Federal investigation for corruption and kickbacks? [Snip] Do you truly think it is even plausible that your meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac was a coincidence? Have you had any other examples...

    Just when you thought liberals had sunk as low as they could, they break out the shovel and start digging. Nothing is sacred anymore. Nothing is off limits, and everything is political. This week showed us once again there is nothing Democrats won’t exploit, no grave they won't dance on, if they think they can score political points. And there’s nothing "journalists" won't spin, won’t lie about, and no hypocrisy too great to prevent them from smearing their political opponents.

  • ‘Merkel understood nothing’: AfD’s fury in east Germany

    10/22/2017 2:56:56 AM PDT · by davikkm · 5 replies
    Cottbus (Germany) (AFP) – Chancellor Angela Merkel hails from Germany’s ex-communist East, yet it is here where the anger against her runs deepest and the far-right protest party AfD has celebrated its strongest gains. The electoral success of the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany, which scored 12.6 percent in September 24 elections, stunned much of the country. But in Cottbus, located in the Lusatia coal mining region near the Polish border, many cheered the strong result for the party whose battle cry is “Merkel must go”. In the city of 100,000 people that is dominated by drab Soviet-style tower blocks, the...

    I just put some pieces of a puzzle together and as far as I know the only people who know this connection are the guilty scumbags involved! The Obama stooge I refer to is Federal Judge Theodore D. Chuang. Perhaps you remember the name? He’s the second treasonous POS judge who set aside President Trumps immigration order. Not only that but Obama stooge Chuang stonewalled the Congressional Benghazi investigation! What better tool to make sure Congress did not learn about the corrupt uranium dealings of Vadim Mikerin , who was the American mastermind of the Russian collusion deal!

The industry didnÂ’t want you as a customer if you wear a red MAGA hat. Oh, celebrities didnÂ’t actually mouth those words. Instead, they embedded their disgust for both President Donald Trump and his admirers in nearly everything they did. - Movies. - TV shows - Late night monologues. - PSAs - Press interviews - Social media We got the message, even if they didnÂ’t actually say it.
