Bergdahl Case Moving Ahead

Judge Refuses To Dismiss Most Serious Charge Against Bergdahl

Carries up to a life sentence.

The charge is levied against a solider who endangers his comrades.
In 2009, Bergdahl walked off his post in Afghanistan. Bergdahl then spent five years as a captive held by the Taliban. Bergdahl was freed in a controversial May 2014 prisoner swap that included five Taliban leaders being released from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Col. Jeffery Nance, the judge in the case, rejected arguments by the defense that the charge of misbehavior should be dropped, while admitting that case law on the charge is scarce.
The defense said that crime was more serious than warranted.
“There is simply no way the accused could not reasonably have understood that his conduct was proscribed,” Nance wrote.

“The government avers that the accused left his combat outpost intentionally, without authority and for the purpose of causing search and recovery operations, which he ultimately did cause. How could such alleged conduct be characterized as anything other than misconduct under any definition of the word?” he wrote
Bergdahl is charged with “misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place” and “desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty.” The desertion charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
Nance also ruled this week that evidence of injuries to those who searched for Bergdahl can be used in the sentencing phase of Bergdahl’s court-martial. He would not allow that evidence to be used in determining Bergdahl’s guilt or innocence because it might trigger a verdict based on emotion and not the facts.
Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen and retired Senior Chief Petty Officer James Hatch, a Navy SEAL, were both injured while searching for Bergdahl.

“Neither Allen nor Hatch would have been where they were doing what they were doing but for the actions of the accused, assuming he is found guilty of (misbehavior before the enemy),” Nance wrote.
Allen was shot in the head while searching for Bergdahl. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, is confined to a wheelchair and is unable to communicate. Hatch suffered a career-ending broken femur on a separate mission to search for Bergdahl.
Bergdahl has said he left his unit to illustrate a leadership failure endangering the lives of the soldiers with whom he served.
“All I was seeing was basically leadership failure to the point that the lives of the guys standing next me to were literally, from what I could see, in danger of something seriously going wrong, and somebody being killed,” Bergdahl said, claiming he had devised a plan to hike 18 miles to a different Army base, where he would state his concerns.
“I was fully confident that when someone took a look at the situation … that people would understand that I was right. What was going on was a danger to the lives of the men of that company,” Bergdahl said.
Bergdahl’s court-martial is set to begin Oct. 23 at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

Are FBI Employees Wrong By Wearing Comey Shirts

FBI Employees Sport ‘Comey Is My Homey’ T-shirts



Displaying their support for former FBI Director James Comey, a number of FBI employees and their guests wore T-shirts bearing the slogan “Comey is My Homey” to the bureau’s Family Day in Washington, D.C., on Friday.
An FBI spokesperson told the Huffington Post that Family Day is an annual event during which FBI employees and their families visit the bureau and divisions of the agency are showcased.
Social media postings noted that at least a dozen attendees wore matching “Comey is My Homey” T-shirts.

Family day at the FBI employees wear  T-shirts. I love that.
Come on Jim Comey. We need you man! Lordy, we need you!

Hey @FBI, where does a civilian acquire a shirt? (PS. This could be the fundraiser of the century!)

The quote “We choose to do good for a living” was printed on the backs of the shirts, and attributed to “Jim Comey.”
Those specific words cannot be verified as a quote from the former FBI director.
The sentiment was likely drawn from a February 2015 speech on relations between police officers and communities of color in the United States delivered by Comey at Georgetown University.

“I believe law enforcement overwhelmingly attracts people who want to do good for a living — people who risk their lives because they want to help other people,” Comey said during his speech.
The White House has contended that, prior to his dismissal, Comey had lost the confidence of “rank and file” FBI employees.
That claim was rebutted in May by Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe during testimony at a Senate hearing in which he said that broad support for Comey remained within the bureau.
Trump critics have argued that his termination of Comey was an inappropriate effort to halt the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

Another Rape By An Illegal Alien

Illegal Alien Allegedly Tazes, Scalds, Rapes Mom in Front of Children

An illegal alien is one of three teenagers who are accused of scalding a Georgia woman with hot water and raping her in her home near her children.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirmed in a statement to the Dustin Inman Society, an anti-illegal immigration organization, that Josue Ramirez is an illegal alien.
Ramirez, 19-years-old, along with 17-year-old Francisco Palencia and an unidentified 15-year-old girl have been arrested after they allegedly broke into a woman’s home and raped her, as FOX 5 Atlanta reported.
According to the victim, Ramirez and Palencia broke into her home and shot her with Tasers, forcing her to her bedroom. When the woman fought the two teens off of her, she ran to be with her children, who were also in the home.
That’s when the 15-year-old girl chased after the woman and allegedly poured two pots of burning hot water onto her, leaving her flailing. Ramirez and Palencia were then able to get the woman into her bedroom again and raped her, the victim said.
During the rape, the 15-year-old allegedly ransacked the woman’s home, while one of her children walked into her bedroom and witnessed the rape by the illegal alien and Palencia.
After the robbery, assault and rape, the woman called the police as the teens fled her home. Now, Ramirez and Palencia are being held at the Gwinnett County Jail, which has an agreement with federal immigration officials to effectively turn over suspected criminal illegal aliens to ICE.
Ramirez, according to the Dustin Inman Society, has an ICE detainer currently on him, where if he is released from the county jail at any time, he will immediately go into federal custody to be deported. It remains unclear where the 15-year-old female suspect is being held.

The D Day Soldiers Did Not Kill Babies. Booker Is Wrong On So Many Levels

Democratic senator likens Planned 

Parenthood supporters to

 World War II heroes

Democratic Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) on Wednesday likened Planned
Parenthood supporters to American veterans who “stormed
the beaches of Normandy” during World War II.
Booker made the comment during a Planned Parenthood
rally in Washington, D.C., where protesters voiced opposition
 to the Senate Republican health care bill, which would block
Medicaid funds for the organization of abortion-providing
clinics for at least one year.
“Your country needs you,” Booker told rallygoers. “This is
 our generation’s great moral moment.”
The senator said that opposing the Senate GOP health care
 bill is “a chance for us to stand in front of the forces that want
 to twist and contort the ideals of our country, to being a place
for the rich and the privileged, and where the many of us suffer
and struggle — that is not the American calling; that is not the
 American character.”
In another part of the speech,
 Booker likened Planned
Parenthood supporters to
American World War II heroes
 at Normandy:
We may not be called to storm beaches

in Normandy. That was not our time. We may not be called to stand with

Sojourner truth and utter those words, “I’m sick and tired of being sick and

tired.” We may not be called to stand in the slums with Irish immigrants

who fought for labor rights that we now take for granted. We may not be

called to march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge with John Lewis and

other activists, facing tear gas and billy clubs. Those were not our days.

But today is our day.
Booker called upon Planned Parenthood supporters to
 “summon the strength” of American civil rights icons and
“fight with their determination.”
I call upon you to summon the strength of Frederick Douglass, to summon

the strength of a Harriet Tubman, to summon the strength of a Cesar

Chavez, to summon the strength of a Harvey Milk. This is the time for us

to summon the strength of our ancestors and fight with their determination,

and fight with their will, and fight with their love, with their love, with

their love.
