THE BERGDAHL SCANDAL (CONT.): OBAMA\’S OUTSOURCE

It has been a week and a half since President Obama announced – with great fanfare at a Rose Garden ceremony the swapping of bowe bergdahl for five Guantanamo detainees. This was supposed to be a triumphant event that would deflect attention from the huge, and growing VA hospital scandal. But since then, we have learned that bowe bergdahl was a lying deserter, that the five detainees...

Then we had NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announcing that, for those comments, sterling would forever be banned from the NBA, owed a 2.5 million dollar fine...

THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATON TIDAL WAVE

Did you know that the United States is currently being subjected to a tidal wave of illegals coming across our borders – with the tacit approval of our President and our Attorney General?

THE BERGDAHL SCANDAL: THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE ARTICLE SO FAR

No excerpts on this one; just a link to Stephen F. Hayes\’ article for weeklystandard.com, which is the single most comprehensive summary of the bergdahl scandal I have seen so far – from his desertion (how many people who were there have to tell us he deserted for it to go from a maybe to a fact?) to the fact that the claims of urgency due to his health were pure unadulterated...

CNN\’S NEW POLITICAL DIRECTOR

Jeff Zucker is the President of CNN Worldwide.  Mr. Zucker was brought in to boom up its ratings – a strange expectation, since he had just failed miserably at doing so for NBC-Universal. Since he has been at the helm, CNN\’s ratings have fallen so far that you\’d need professional oil riggers to drill down far enough to find them.  But he\’s...

THE BERGDAHL SCANDAL: A FEW QUESTIONS

How many soldiers who served with bowe bergdahl – comrades in arms who would be the first to commiserate with him if he were captured against his will – have to come forward and tell us that he deserted for the left in this country to believe he was a deserter? Why do these men have to defend their eyewitness accounts, and their accounts of the radio transmission saying that...

DONALD STERLING\’S PUNISHMENT, THE NBA\’S REDEMPTION

Boy did they get that donald sterling guy. He was going to take the NBA to court and fight their demand that he sell the Los Angeles Clippers.   But it will never happen.  Why?  Because sterling has agreed to sell the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steven Ballmer, an even richer White guy than he is, for a price in the neighborhood of $2 billion — almost four...

Well, we finally have an apology from someone in the Obama administration for something related to the bowe bergdahl scandal.
