Attorney for U.S. Army deserter/traitor Bowe Bergdahl says Donald Trump’s derision of Bergdahl as a “dirty, rotten traitor” was “contemptible, un-American and threatens his ability to get a fair trial”

Good thing Donald Trump is not president yet or Bowe Bergdahl would be facing a firing squad…and his repugnant father, Robert, would be sitting in prison as a Muslim terrorist sympathizer.

Stars & Stripes  In a statement released Thursday, attorney Eugene Fidell said Trump’s portrayal of Bergdahl as a “dirty, rotten traitor” was “contemptible and un-American” and threatened to color the opinions of jurors in a potential court-martial. “Bergdahl is not charged with treason or anything like it, (but he should be) ” Fidell said, condemning “Mr. Trump’s reckless disregard for the truth.”

Bergdahl, who is charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, faces an investigative hearing in September, which will decide whether his case should be referred to trial.

Bergdahl was released by Taliban fighters last year in a controversial prisoner swap that included the release of five Taliban militants held in the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He joined the Taliban in 2009 after he abruptly left his base.

Soldiers in Bergdahl’s unit said he had no plans to return. Fidell has said Bergdahl was trying to draw attention to problems inside the base.

Bergdahl’s attorneys have repeatedly questioned his ability to get a fair trial, several times comparing public attitude toward the soldier to a lynch mob.

Trump lashed out against Bergdahl during the recent Republican debate. At a town hall in New Hampshire this week, he also claimed that U.S. servicemembers died while searching for Bergdahl. Fidell said the candidate was “misinformed.”

“Mr. Trump’s comments, along with many others that have been made over the last year, directly threaten my client’s right to a fair trial,” Fidell said.

“Mr. Trump must stop vilifying this young man, who suffered five years of brutal captivity at the hands of the Taliban and deserves to be judged on the basis of evidence rather than slander from someone who has never worn our country’s uniform,” Fidell wrote. (CRAP, he joined the Taliban of his own free will and should be hanged for it)

Are Christians being systematically purged from the U.S. Military?

1194368_origIf you are a Bible-believing Christian, there is no place for you in Barack Obama’s version of the U.S. military. Christian service members all over the nation are being disciplined for reading their Bibles, talking about their faith publicly and encouraging others to live a moral lifestyle. And just saying the name of “Jesus” at the wrong place or the wrong time while serving in the military is enough to spark a national controversy.

Obama-Administration-AntiChristian

Prophecy News Watch  We live at a time when political correctness in America is wildly out of control, and thanks to Obama the U.S. military has become one of the most politically correct institutions in our society. Things have gotten so bad that dozens of top officers that did not agree with Obama’s views have been forced out of the military in recent years. The U.S. military is being transformed into an overtly anti-Christian institution, and for those of us that are Christians that is a very chilling development.

Perhaps you think that the title of this article is a bit of an exaggeration. Perhaps you think that there is no way things could have gotten that bad. Well, I grew up as a military kid. In those days, the U.S. military was actually quite welcoming to Christians. But now things have completely and totally changed.

christians-now-face-court-martial-for-sharing-faith-pentagon-obama

For example, the Washington Times reported that large numbers of Christians are either leaving the military or never joining in the first place because of the “hostile work environment” that currently exists… Christians are leaving the U.S. military or are discouraged from joining in the first place because of a “hostile work environment” that doesn’t let them express their beliefs openly, religious freedom advocates say.

Michael Berry, senior counsel at the Liberty Institute, a Texas-based legal organization dedicated to defending religious liberty in America, said recent high-profile cases of military chaplains facing punishment for private counseling sessions that reflected the teachings of their religion could cause devout Americans who are qualified for military service to think twice about joining the military.

Another fine Seabee day

Could this be what Barack Obama wants? Could it be possible that he actually wants to discourage young Bible-believing Christians from serving our country? Because according to the Times, that is exactly what is happening…“People of faith are going to stay away from the military,” said Mr. Berry in an interview with The Washington Times.

“I can’t tell you how many moms and dads I’ve spoken to who say, ‘My son or daughter wants to join the military, [but] in light of what you’ve described, I’m not sure I want to let them join the military anymore,’ and I don’t blame them. I would have serious reservations about my own kids joining,” Mr. Berry said.

If you are in the military today, you have got to be so careful about any expression of faith. Even the slightest slip up can cause the authorities to crack down on you.

65baa4ccd6f9e427405b8a1b48d5fa0b

Just consider the following two examples which come from Newsmax…In December, a chaplain for a Ranger training battalion was sent an administrative letter of concern after a soldier complained that he had promoted Christianity and used a Bible during a mandatory suicide-prevention training session.

Last month, a Navy chaplain was removed from his job and may lose his career after complaints about his private counseling during which he discouraged homosexuality and sex outside of marriage. You mean a Christian chaplain actually “used a Bible” and “promoted Christianity”? In the old days, doing those things was the very essence of what being a chaplain was all about. How in the world are you supposed to be a chaplain without “using the Bible”? It doesn’t make any sense.

Like I said, the U.S. military is becoming an overtly anti-Christian institution, and it starts at the very top. Since he has been in the White House, Barack Obama has consistently slammed Bible-believing Christians. Obviously he considers them to be among his chief political enemies, and he barely tries to hide his animosity for them. We saw another example of this just recently…

obarmycapture_zpsb7275c3d

Consider what Obama—who is on record saying “we are no longer a Christian nation,” and who never notes the Islamic identity of murderers or the Christian identity of their victims, and who ignored a recent UN session on Christian persecution—had to say about Christians at the Easter Prayer Breakfast: “On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.”

One of the key people that the Obama administration has brought in to advise the Pentagon on matters of faith and the military is an atheist named Mikey Weinstein. Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and to say that he hates evangelical Christians is a huge understatement. The following comes from one of my previous articles…

ImageGen.ashx

The MRFF is a very insidious organization. It is headed up by a man named Mikey Weinstein. He has called Christians “human monsters” and “enemies of the United States Constitution“. Weinstein is convinced that sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ while in the military is “sedition and treason” and should be punished as such.

With guys like that telling the Pentagon how to treat Christians, no wonder things have gotten so bad. Obama is “fundamentally transforming” the military, and those that aren’t willing to go along are being forced out. But don’t just take my word for it.

WeinsteinRant

In a previous article, I included these amazing quotes from retired high ranking officers…-Retired Army Major General Paul Vallely: “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”

-Retired Army Major General Patrick Brady: “There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him.”

-Retired Army Lt. General William G. “Jerry” Boykin: “Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause.”

general-william-boykin-family-research-council

-Retired Navy Captain Joseph John: “I believe there are more than 137 officers who have been forced out or given bad evaluation reports so they will never make Flag (officer), because of their failure to comply to certain views.”

Are you starting to get the picture? In addition, specific evangelical Christian groups are often being singled out as “hate groups” during military training sessions around the country. The following is from Fox News… Several dozen U.S. Army active duty and reserve troops were told last week that the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, should be classified as a domestic hate group because the group advocates for traditional family values.

extreme-e1365291051420

The briefing was held at Camp Shelby in Mississippi and listed the AFA alongside domestic hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam. Needless to say, the AFA is not a hate group. But they are Bible-believing Christians that take their faith seriously. For Obama and his minions, that is a very bad thing.

And as I pointed out the other day, we have seen this kind of thing since Obama has been in the White House over and over and over again. Christians are being demonized as “right-wing extremists” and “potential terrorists”, and if this keeps up it won’t be too long until we see overt persecution by the government.

In the old days, Christians loved the military and the military loved Christians. But now they are being set directly at odds with each other, and for those of us that are Bible-believing Christians that has a very ominous ring to it. fbmeme_condemned-and-not

FBI ALERT: Middle-Eastern (Muslim) males approaching family members of US Military personnel on American soil

The following alert is related to Middle-Eastern males approaching military family members in Colorado and Wyoming was obtained from a veterans advocacy organization. A force protection advisory that was released by the Washington National Guard & Military Department describes a similar incident that occurred in Washington.

FBI-MiddleEasternMales

In May 2015, the wife of a US military member was approached in front of her home by two Middle-Eastern males. The men stated that she was the wife of a US interrogator. When she denied their claims, the men laughed. The two men left the area in a dark-colored, four-door sedan with two other Middle-Eastern males in the vehicle. The woman had observed the vehicle in the neighborhood on previous occasions.

(U//FOUO) Similar incidents in Wyoming have been reported to the FBI throughout June 2015. On numerous occasions, family members of military personnel were confronted by Middle-Eastern males in front of their homes. The males have attempted to obtain personal information about the military member and family members through intimidation. The family members have reported feeling scared.

(U//FOUO) To date, the men have not been identified and it is not known if all the incidents involve the same Middle-Eastern males. If you have any information that may assist the FBI in identifying these individuals, or reporting concerning additional incidents; in Colorado please contact the FBI Fort Collins Resident Agency at 970-663-1028, in Wyoming please contact the FBI Cheyenne Resident Agency at 307-632-6224.

(U) This report has been prepared by the DENVER Division of the FBI. Comments and queries may be addressed to the DENVER Division at 303-629-7171.

Calling for their beheadings, the Islamic State published a list of addresses purportedly belonging to approximately 100 members of the U.S. military. Identifying themselves as the “Islamic State Hacking Division,” the group claimed to have obtained the personal information of military personnel from compromised military servers, databases and emails.

The Blaze  “[W]e have decided to leak 100 addresses so that our brothers residing in America can deal with you,” the group warned.

7228937_G

“Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe,” the “Islamic State Hacking Division” added.

In the online document, names and photos accompanied addresses purporting to belong to the military personnel. An informal review of the information by TheBlaze appeared to show matches between some names, photos and listed addresses.

isis-100-kill-list

A Defense Department spokesperson was unable to authenticate the information, but said the U.S. military is investigating. “[W]e are looking into it,” the spokesperson told TheBlaze in a short statement. “The safety of our service members is always a concern.”

Marine Corps spokesman Lt. Col. John Caldwell told TheBlaze in a statement that “NCIS is conducting in person notifications to the affected Navy and Marine personnel regarding this presently unverified threat/data breach.”

leaked-dossiers-contains-namerank-address-us-army-personnel-along-their-headshot

“It is recommended Marines and family members check their online/social footprint, ensuring privacy settings are adjusted to limit the amount of available personal information,” he added. “Vigilance and force protection considerations remain a priority for commanders and their personnel worldwide.”

The Air Force said they are also reaching out to members listed in the document.

“The Air Force is cooperating fully with the DOD on this matter,” Lt. Col. Holly Slaughter said. “We are taking the appropriate steps to make sure that everyone who needs to know is notified. As always, force protection is a primary concern.”

In January, the social media accounts of the U.S. Central Command was compromised by Islamic State sympathizers. Hackers used Twitter to publish a list of military members and their addresses. At the time, the Pentagon contacted affected individuals and local law enforcement.

TEXAS, INDIANA, FLORIDA, ARKANSAS, OKLAHOMA, AND LOUISIANA to arm all National Guardsmen in wake of Tennessee massacre of U.S. military personnel by a devout Muslim

here-are-the-victims-of-the-chattanooga-shooting-2-30610-1437230989-0_bigVery surprisingly, Tennessee isn’t yet one of the states that has announced it will place armed National Guardsmen at military facilities around the state. Neither has Georgia, where armed civilians have taken it upon themselves to stand guard in front of military facilities.

APTOPIX_Georgia_Natio_Rudd_t1070_h275cc37390ed4c14494cda566110459b68482d74

Times Free Press  Governors in Indiana, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma have ordered National Guardsmen to be armed. Tennessee, where five servicemembers were killed Thursday in a brutal attack on military facilities, has yet to take any action, but pressure is building for officials to do more to protect members of the military from acts of terrorism. 

IN_banner

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is allowing the Indiana National Guard to have its personnel be armed at all recruiting offices and state military facilities. Pence issued his executive order Saturday, saying he won’t let Guardsmen be unable to defend themselves and others at facilities in the state. The governor’s order also directs the state adjutant general to review ways to improve security at all Indiana National Guard facilities and recruiting offices.

OKLAHOMA-LOGO-02

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is also authorizing his state’s adjutant general to arm full-time Oklahoma National Guardsmen at military facilities. Fallin issued an executive order on Friday granting Maj. Gen. Robbie Asher the authority to arm National Guard soldiers and airmen with whatever weaponry he deems necessary to adequately provide for their safety and security. 

Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz says without the state authority, National Guardsmen revert to federal policies, which call for them to be unarmed. Fallin issued a separate executive order late Friday that calls for all American and Oklahoma flags on state property be flown at half-staff through Monday in honor of the four Marines killed at a military facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Texas-FB-Banner

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he, too, has authorized the adjutant general of the Texas National Guard to arm Guardsmen at military facilities across Texas. “After the recent shooting in Chattanooga, it has become clear that our military personnel must have the ability to defend themselves against these type of attacks on our own soil,” Abbot said. “Arming the National Guard at these bases will not only serve as a deterrent to anyone wishing to do harm to our service men and women, but will enable them to protect those living and working on the base.”

Florida-designstyle-friday-m

Florida Gov. Rick Scott is ordering National Guard recruiters at six storefront locations to relocated to their nearest armory. Scott announced the order Saturday. He wants a review of security at the Guard recruitment centers, possibly installing bullet-proof glass at the storefronts or video surveillance equipment.

Arkansas_Razorbacks_Woodmark_Logo

On Friday, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson authorized Arkansas National Guard Adjutant General Mark Berry to arm full-time military personnel.

LA_banner

In Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal, another presidential candidate, issued an executive order authorizing the state’s National Guard adjutant general to arm personnel at Guard facilities to provide protection. In his proclamation, Jindal says the adjutant general should “identify and arm certain Guard personnel currently on state active duty … as reasonably necessary to preserve the lives, property, and security of themselves and other persons subject to threat of an attack as occurred this week in Chattanooga, Tennessee.”

On Friday, Gen. Ray Odierno, chief of staff of the Army, said that security at military recruiting and reserve centers would be reviewed but that it was too early to say whether the facilities should have security guards or other increased protection. He told reporters that arming troops in those offices could cause more problems than it might solve.

MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE: U.S. Marine Corps veteran with PTSD suspended and labeled “a threat” for refusing to be counseled by a Muslim supremacist female intern in full Islamofascist garb

eric-rawls-mississippiCampus Reform reports that a former active-duty Marine who served two combat tours in Iraq and is diagnosed with combat-related PTSD was suspended from Mississippi College in Clinton, Mississippi after he requested to meet with a non-Muslim counselor in the school’s Office of Counseling and Disability Services. Rawls has been diagnosed with several combat-related disabilities including lung disease and post traumatic stress disorder.

On May 25, Campus Reform published a story about Jeremy Rawls, a student veteran at Mississippi College who alleged that the college’s decision to suspend and label him a threat to himself and his peers came after he requested to meet with a non-Muslim counselor in the school’s Office of Counseling and Disability Services. Campus Reform reporter Gabriella Morrongiello was first made aware of the allegations by an MC student familiar with the situation.

After speaking with the college and Rawls, new documentation has been released that calls into question reasoning presented in the original story. The Muslim counselor that Rawls allegedly met with was a “student intern,” according to Dr. Bill Townsend, Vice President for Advancement and Legal Counsel to MC’s president. The details of Rawls’ exchange with that intern remain unclear.

Truth Revolt  In addition to serving in the Marine Corps, Jeremy Rawls worked as a private contractor in Afghanistan and was a member of the Army National Guard for seven years. He was on active-duty in Iraq during the Second Battle of Fallujah—named the bloodiest battle of the Iraq War—and says he’s lost many friends to suicide due to PTSD.

Rawls, who is pursuing a degree in English with a minor in education, was originally paired with a female counselor in traditional Muslim dress during his initial visit. “It’s not that I didn’t want to participate,” Rawls said. “I didn’t want to traumatize her and it wasn’t a good environment to be talking about [my disabilities] with that specific person.”

Since February, the senior has struggled to maintain good grades and reclaim the work-study position he’d procured through the local VA after administrators suspended him and labeled him a threat to himself and other students.

In an email notifying Rawls of his suspension, Associate Dean of Students Jonathan Ambrose said administrators and the Student Intervention Team have a due diligence in not only the protection of yourself, but also the campus community as a whole from potential harm or the threat there of. You are not permitted to be on campus for any reason or attend class during the duration of the Interim Suspension unless you have written permission.

According to Rawls, the school never spoke with “a single professor” about his grades or behavior prior to suspending and subsequently removing him from the work-study position. “To have been a marine and to tell us we’re a threat… that’s actually a compliment,” said Rawls. “But telling me I’m a threat to others was extremely offensive.”

Marines in Fallujah

Rawls said his attempts to meet with staff members to discuss changing counselors were repeatedly ignored until recently. “Their response was suspending me pending a mental evaluation which I provided and then they put me on further restriction and a reintegration program,” Rawls said.

Last Thursday Rawls met with administrators in an effort to begin resolving the matter and to ensure that he is able to fully participate in academics and extracurricular activities in the coming school year. “They asked me what I wanted and I told them I want to be a normal student and I want my job back,” Rawls said.

“The college itself is very supportive, there is just an ignorance toward veterans with PTSD and they are demonized so much by the media which led to confusion about what they [MC administrators] were dealing with,” Rawls said. The committed student and proud veteran believes his school’s actions reflect the need for “cultural change.” 

“If they’ll do this to me, and I’m one of the most outspoken veterans on campus, they’ll definitely do this to others,” Rawls said.

MAGNIFICENT LIPIZZANER STALLIONS: The only good thing to come out of the Muslim conquest of Spain

The Lipizzaner horse’s ancestors can be traced back to 800AD. They were Berber horses brought to Spain by the Moors (Muslims) from North Africa via Gibraltar.

fb6b1b7addf176bc440d702e127f3392

The Hapsburg family controlled both Spain and Austria when the art of classical riding revived in Europe during the Renaissance. There was a need for light, fast horses for use in the military and the riding school. The Spanish horse, produced during Moorish rule by crossing Berber and Arab stallions with Iberian mares, was considered the most suitable mount because of its exceptional sturdiness, beauty, and intelligence

Capriole_3938

In the eighth century, the Moors introduced further Arab blood into the Iberian horse breed. These Muslim conquerors wished to improve the endurance qualities of their light oriental breeds as they demanded mounts able to withstand many attacks from the heavier horses of the Christian knights.

The breed has been endangered numerous times by warfare sweeping Europe. The rescue of the Lipizzans during World War II by General Patton and American troops was made famous by the movie Miracle of the White Stallions.

VIETNAM DEJA VU? Spitting on wounded combat veterans, pissing on the American flag, leftist college students, spawned by the sixties commie generation, are running true to form

27F1628700000578-3053996-image-a-3_1429882736128Investigations have been launched at two universities over accusations that Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT) fraternity members taunted wounded war heroes, urinated on an American flag, and spit on a wounded veteran and his service dog in Panama City Beach, Florida. They also made derogatory comments about the warriors’ wives, threw items off balconies and desecrated an American flag.

Screen-Shot-2015-04-23-at-10.28.26-AM

FOX News  The April 17 incident, involving Zeta Beta Tau fraternity members from the University of Florida and Emory University, has infuriated residents of Panama City. “They were being treated like the Vietnam veterans were treated,” said Linda Cope, the founder of the Warrior Beach Retreat

The local charity provides an annual all-expense-paid vacation for more than a 100 combat-wounded warriors and their spouses or caregivers. All of the expenses are covered by Panama City Beach residents and businesses.

Television station WJHG identified that man as Nicholas Connole. “They actually spit on me and my service dog as well, and that’s just so disrespectful and it hurts,” he told the television station.

There were local reports of frat boys throwing beer cans and bottles at veterans and ripping an American flag out of the ground. “This happened because of two fraternities causing heartache for these warriors and that should never have happened – never happened,” Cope said. “Shame on them. There was no excuse.”

“There is no doubt that some of our members engaged in ugly and unacceptable behavior,” Executive Director Laurence Bolotin wrote in a statement. “Their actions have no place in ZBT or anywhere, and they will not be tolerated.” Bolotin issued a personal apology to the veterans and their families as well as the Warrior Beach Retreat organization – calling the behavior disgusting.

“I am deeply saddened that the actions of our members ruined this special event and failed to show the respect our military and their families deserve,” he wrote. To the fraternity’s credit, they have promised to make amends for what they called a “disgraceful situation.”

W. Kent Fuchs, the president of the University of Florida, wrote a personal apology to Cope and the Warrior Beach Retreat. “I can only imagine the pain and indignity of enduring this behavior,” he wrote. “I want to assure you that it is not representative of our students or our university and we will make every effort to learn more, take appropriate action and prevent similar incidents from occurring again.”

Emory University, on the other hand, said it cannot confirm that any of their students were involved in the despicable behavior.

“If any members of our community are identified as being responsible, they will be held accountable for their actions by the university,” read a statement from the Georgia school.
