Which Idiot Allowed President Trump to Handle Director Comey as He Did?
NEW YORK – 25 JANUARY 2016 What on earth do the majority of Americans have in common with Iowans who generally make their living killing pigs and cutting them up, growing corn to make ethanol, not food, and selling insurance on television?
Most Iowans are not the people that make the nation win or lose on the world stage. They are nice, slightly stupid people, who also contain a huge amount of evangelist voters, which is what that idiot Ted Cruz is counting on this upcoming caucus.
Hey – Americans are not exactly evangelists – but Cruz’ father is one and Cruz thinks he is one. This is biblical bullshit. I don’t care what Corinthians chapter, paragraph or line you choose – the Bible was written by politicians, not by God.
That said – Iowans hardly ever get it right – especially after the start of the 20th Century when people – profoundly after WWII realized that “education” was a very important element to consider when electing a president – not a religious education, not a musical education, but a good general education complete with world travel and few other things that any woman or man who wants to be president should have – and in spades.
Lets face it – if you actually CHOOSE to live in Iowa you are either a loser, or one the people that control all the other Iowans. So why in heck do we seek Iowan counsel when electing the most powerful leader on earth – if if just militarily?
People with smarts. sense, impeccable taste, graciousness, intellect, adventurism, and logic don’t often live anywhere but on either the Atlantic or Pacific Coast. The rest of the nation is known as “flyover” territory which used to be Texas but now includes most or all of the Midwest and the South.
New Hampshire is even worse. What the heck do people in New Hampshire do anyway – make passports? I think that’s their biggest export is ammunition along with The top five ‘commodities’ made in the Granite State like: electric machines, industrial machines,a few computers; television equipment, and parts; optic, plastics; and arms to use that ammunition. That alone should keep them out of any First in the Nation status.
Now I am joking of course – but my point is that no state should begin some f-ed up WAVE of popularity for some idiot like Ted Cruz or that moron Huckabee or Huckleberry who only runs for office to make money for himself and sired a kid who tortures and hangs dogs in the forest for fun and erotic pleasure.
Nonetheless, the crazies who run our media are camped out in those two unimportant states hoping that something exciting will actually happen in either Iowa or New Hampshire. See CNN’s Wolf Blintza , or some slippery showgirl from Fox, or a really old man from CBS – Yes they are all in Iowa and they will all join the conga line to New Hampshire a few days later and on to the “Blow Me” state – South Carolina?
All nominating elections should be held in all states on the same day – or better on the same two days – to give people a chance to vote instead picking muck out of their toenails.
And Caucuses – the dumbest idea of all measures nothing much more than how much you can pay people to stand around in a stinking gymnasium and do a kind of mental Rope Pull to see who is the best candidate to run or destroy the Earth.
Grow up America! Stop making presidential candidates pretend to cross the entire nation and shake hands with all 320 million Americans and 50 million others here on tourist visas for the past thirty years.
We have computers now. We can vote form home or from our cell phones.
Cut the crap. If nothing else – Donald Trump already proved you don’t need to spend a dime of you billions to sucker in the population.
STOP IT and STOP IT NOW…

I am certain most of you have noticed Sarah Palin popping up here and there on slow news days. What a tragedy befalls us thanks to idiot producers on most events and commentary sites, channels, and newspapers.
I hoped that more than a decade after meeting her we would be finished with her, her idiot husband, and freaky kids – the only normal one who deserves our protection is her little boy who suffers from a terrible illness still not curable.
Sarah Palin is newsworthy – CNN tells me – because she was once the Governor of Alaska and more importantly the spawn of that moronic and very old senator from Arizona who had the gall to run to President under the GOP banner and who married lots of beer money or would be long gone from the congress by now.
But in truth Sarah Palin has been buried in the dustbin of political history for almost eight years and there should she stay. What a beast she is. She loves to kill animals she doesn’t have to eat. She teaches little children – her own son – how to kill wild animals using a helicopter as transport. She drags a shotgun around like it was a bag of potatoes. She dresses inappropriately most of the time, and, she is aging – looking more like a blackjack dealer in Vegas than a former wannabee vice president of the United States.
Sarah Palin is most likely a nice woman, but she is a pioneering jerk and worse, one of the spearheads of the obnoxious Tea Party who have almost destroyed America by streaming out of their trailers and displaying almost every terrible opinion that someone can shout.
The Tea Party although they deny it – is populated by who many would call losers – They are those of us who think they have a raw deal because they are White and still poor and stupid. So, they attack people in even worse situations – or so they think – and preach about war, killing, bombing, shooting everything and everyone in sight who isn’t like they see themselves. The are, in general, the white larva of future American terrorists.
Already the FBI and other intelligence agencies keep their eyes and ears on the Tea Party the most vicious of their members. The Tea Party whined that the IRS was asking them “all kinds of questions” and questioning the right to become a “charity”. The truth is that every tax-advantaged group is closely examined by the IRS because so many of them are simply claiming tax freedom for donor money as a cloak for more nefarious purposes. I know – I have been a director of more than a few real charitable organizations – some of which the Tea Party itself would close because they benefitted the poorest people on earth.
The Tea Party could play a fine role in American politics. They could, for instance, call for everyone in Congress in 2015 to be replaced – not by one of their neonazi favorites – but by anyone with a brain – AND a heart. A heart is what they omit except when it comes to repopulate the earth with people who are clones of themselves. They bomb abortion clinics for that purpose. Some even kill doctors and staff who may have performed an abortion – and of course they are all evangelistic and Christian. One will not find many Jews in the Tea Party nor Muslims, or Latter Day Saints, Catholics, and Bahais.
The tea party, personified in the body and brain of Sarah Palin, is thankfully losing its magnetism of late and some Tea Party hangers-on actually make sense on one or two issues.
The best thing the Tea Party might do is disband and come together again under some new umbrella – perhaps a group that takes care of people even poorer and dumber than they are. Now wouldn’t that be something?

During Wednesday’s coverage of Pope Francis’ first day in Washington, FOX News Channel’s Shepard Smith and Bill Hemmer were co-anchoring levi coverage. Bill Hemmer blurted out an (inaccurate) assertion that the Pope did not publicly address politics in the Cuba leg of his visit, in a typically cheap attempt to insinuate that Francis and Fidel Castro must (nudge nudge wink wink) be fellow travelers.
Smith’s reply was priceless and completely refreshing:
I don’t know — I think we are in a weird place in the world when the following things are considered political. Five things, I’m going to tick them off. These are the five things that were on his and our president’s agenda.
- Caring for the marginalized and the poor -– that’s now political.
- Advancing economic opportunity for all – political?
- Serving as good stewards of the environment.
- Protecting religious minorities and promoting religious freedom globally.
- Welcoming [and] integrating immigrants and refugees globally. And that’s political?
I mean, I don’t know what we expect to hear from an organization’s leader like the Pope of the Catholic Church, other than protect those who need help, bring in refuges who have no place because of war and violence and terrorism. These seem like universal truths that we should be good to others who have less than we do, that we should give shelter to those who don’t have it. I think these were the teachings in the Bible of Jesus. They’re the words of the pope, they’re the feelings of the president. And people who find themselves on the other side of that message should consult a mirror, it seems like. Because I think that’s what we’re supposed to do as a people, whatever your religion. I mean, it seems to me and I think to probably, as Bill O’Reilly would put it, most clear-thinking Americans — that that’s how we’re supposed to roll.
Here’s hoping everyone on the blue side of the American political spectrum has a gander at the clip below (hat tip to our good friends at Crooks & Liars). Yes, those who are accusing the Pope of being “too political” need a long, hard look in the mirror, and the likelihood that they are completely oblivious to their hypocrisy. More importantly, the five values Smith ticks off engender fundamental decency, altruism, and liberty – American values that should remain above Washington politics.
A Sea Change in Voter Sentiment – or a Passing Fancy?
By: Jeff Koopersmith, Editor Emeritus
When I was a boy I noticed that people smart enough to express opinions seemed loyal to their party identities.
The 1950s and 1960s passed into the 1970s and 80s voters began to make heavy bets on third-party or what I call “abnormal” candidates.
When I was a boy I noticed that people smart enough to express opinions seemed loyal to their party identities. As Ronald Reagan was the first. Although he had been the governor of California, he was controlled by wealthy auto dealers and other groups whose interests were mostly financial. He won because he was an unusual candidate with a winning smile and a true innocence about him.
One other candidate cannot be ignored. He is Ralph Nader who cost Al Gore to lose the White House because there would not have been vote fuss-up between George “W” Bush in Florida and New Hampshire. Nader took nearly 100,000 votes and 25 electoral votes from Gore.
I knew both men, Nader and Gore and admired them. My summer place was in the same town that Nader lived – I knew Gore through some of his staff and because I was on the Democratic National Committee “hitter list.” Whether Gore failed to placate the Nader Raiders by making a pact with Ralph on their important issues, or whether he could have asked Nader to be his vice president partner is not predictable – but Nader – unambiguously denied Gore the Oval Office and in doing so destroyed what I considered a path toward True American Values that started and largely continued throughout the 20th Century.
During this 2016 Presidential race we are introduced to just a few “atypical” candidates. One was Barack Obama – a gift, I believe, to all Americans.
Today these are Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina. as well as Ben Carson – none of whom could be considered professional politicians They might not hold on in future weeks and months but the message is clear – Americans are finally tired of the lies, the corruption, and the do-nothingness of modern do-nothing government which will show itself in state elections as well – and soon.
Many feel uncomfortable with all three of these candidates. Trump is not politically correct and too flashy. Fiorina is a failed female executive and unsure of world affairs and certainly in business finance as she helped cause almost total destruction of Hewlett-Packard – a powerhouse in the neonatal world of computer hardware and more. Ben Carson is a surgeon. Even if her were a “great” surgeon – which many question – a doctor doesn’t really belong in the White House – or does he?
On the other side many American voters like one of the three enough to push them to the top of the growing heap of wanna-bee presidents – a pile so large that we now find ourselves in an abnormal Presidential cycle with at least three atypical candidates.
Why is this happening now? There are many and varied reasons that voters are attracted to what might be called mutts by the two major political parties in the United States – but this is to their benefit. They may not be opposite the usual pols – but they are different – and just their candidacy is giving millions a chance to give the Thumb’s Down to the usual – some say – pathological candidates and look toward at least a few kind-of-regular men and women. The three I mentioned would be even more popular if the vast majority of people were not as frightened of the future as they are today.
So many typical Americans fear they will lose their jobs, their pensions, their homes and more. Added to this – and perhaps the most contributive to this fear is the enormous reach of the internet and news media that never existed before – some good, some goofy, and others merely propaganda machines for one side or another. Fox News is the King of propaganda from the right. In a way they further infected the atmosphere when they chose to attack – and viciously – our first dark-skinned president, who came from Chicago and swept the nation off its feet with his soaring climb to the top job in this world not in terms of money but in responsibility.
Barack Obama found himself confronted by the most irresponsible government and hate-filled min-media one could imagine. Today we all can imagine worse.
The most conservative Republicans and even Democrats were far too ready to make assumptions about Obama that were never true. On the other hand many Republicans I know well are already worrying about his loss because they know their fellows have gone too far – in war, and what has become a virtual war on the poorest of us that enriches the wealthiest. No one planned that, but some of us saw it coming – especially economists who suspected – even knew what would come from the Bush Administration a do-nothing Congress which means most all members of congress – not only Republicans. If a political party does not control all three – White House, House of Representatives, and the Senate – it seems that bloc(s) simply gives up and only attempts a stalemate at best on a single issue of concern to only one side of the other.
It is true that the newer Republican members of the House and Senate often act like bratty children -moreso than their GOP predecessors. Cable television let us down because they allowed a man who I consider a maniac – Roger Ailes – to get ahead of more centrist or left of center electronic media by several years – and then it was too late. Ailes was and is smart – but he is not wise. He created a cable news channel that could have landed him and most his executives in federal prison as he flaunted the Federal Election Commission (FEC) laws and depended on protection of the First Amendment guarantee of free speech. In essence Ailes organized a 24 hour-seven days-a week nonstop commercial for the ultra-right. At that time this was illegal – but instead of the FEC and the Attorney General bringing indictments from a non-stop ad for Republicans which Brit Hume stupidly, but truthfully shouted won the choice for right-wing candidates.
Fox News and its controlling executives including some of its talking heads and certainly writers and producers were, to my mind, guilty of felonies. When it became clear that I was on a mission to stop Fox, Ailes threatened me – in writing and hired private detectives to dig up dirt on me and mine. There was no dirt, but it was a life-shaking experience to feel the crush of such a man – who I am convinced, is Goering-like in his eagerness to turn the world into a playground for war and wealthy each feeding the other. Ailes routine was the frighten the people – especially the older American and the less educated to believe the nation was close to collapse because “liberals” were driving America into the dirt with high taxes and far too many programs designed to help he poorest of us get by.
If I had been of like mind I might have done the same – but I was not, and am not.
Today Ailes is paying the price because a wide-ranging electorate is fully aware of what Fox New really is. This was last demonstrated by a lack of support for Megyn Kelly – the beautiful, but falsely intellectual anchor on fox who tries to copy Bill O’Reilly’s confrontive style – but fails miserably because she is what my grandma called “full of herself”. This past week you didn’t see Fox rush to her rescue when Donald Trump attempted – and I argue successfully – to turn the tables on Megyn Kelly and show her for what she was.
Magically – although Fox had garnered 25 million viewers for its poorly arranged “debate” between GOP candidates for the presidential nomination which was controlled by Kelly, the light-minded Brett Baire, and the boy wonder – Chris Wallace, who is not a chip off the old block but a sort of silly searcher-for-lies about Democrats as the anchor on the Fox News Sunday program which is supposed to be competition for Meet the Press or the more serious CNN lineup from 8:30 am through noon covering policy and politics – well thought out and balanced more than anything Fox has ever displayed.
So as not to digress too far with my loathing for Fox news and most everyone affiliated with it, I point out only that more and more voters see Fox for what it is – and who really blew the whistle – Why it was Donald Trump who refused to stand there and take a pile of crap question from Megyn Kelly about “things Trump has said about women”.
What hypocrisy inasmuch as Kelly is no example of a New Woman. She uses sex and shrieking as her top tools to do-in guests or more-important to shape a” Megan Moment” as it’s known in the business. Here, she comes from nowhere and attempts to embarrass her guests. Her problem is that she isn’t street-smart enough to do this. She fails but people on the far right love her attempts and now she is supposedly catching up to O’Reilly’s average viewership.
What Megyn Kelly forgets is that she has to show her “leftie” side at times and her gentile side if it exists. If you listen to O’Reilly you will see that even though he is a highly paid whore for the right – he walks a good seesaw and appeals to the left when it’s important to do so – and that is almost on almost every show.
So here we have a short story about what Americans are feeling. They are fearful. And stupid politicians and weak news sources play and prey upon that fear. We can see that nothing is happening in the hallowed halls of Congress on either side and that the GOP has the congress in a headlock which it does not intend to slacken.
Naturally this causes a kind of undercurrent of despair among Americans – of one intensity or another.
Yes, we are today a nation of despair and desperation. The wealthy are fearful of losing their billions. The war between classes – a favorite Fox fairytale – is untrue. It is our leaders who have allowed the rich to become filthy rich – and at the cost of the most vulnerable. I have never known any wealthy American who does not share that wealth and who would covet higher taxes to try to even the field of play.
So we see men and women like Bill and Melinda Gates, and the wise old owl of Berkshire Hathaway publically pledge to give away half their fortunes while other billionaires seem to badly want to join that donor pool. Of course this has happened all through the past, but individually. The Koch brothers who have not quietly enough become huge political players are also big givers and are also not opposed to higher tax brackets for the “rich”.
While Donald Trump is not an Astor, a Rockefeller, or a Mellon, he too is quick to talk about what he will do for women’s health and the poorest among us. Bernie Sanders talks of Robin Hood tax laws, and Carly Fiorina at least stabs at the problems of poverty in this wealthy nation.
Moreover – these “atypical” candidates seemingly are now a part of America’s future – at least until some other problem replaces the current.
Perhaps they will fail and things will continue until something busts – but the powerful politicians today would do well to watch their own backs because people who are tired of what they see in this, our Democracy and the ways in which we lead the world, will challenge them repeatedly and ferociously if need be.
Barack and Michelle Obama are worried that the United States leads too much through the size and might of its vast military, even as it leads the world in do-gooders at the same time.
What the Obama’s and their advisors see, better than most, is that new advances in communications have revealed like a microscope – at least a large part of our own American hypocrisy.
Now a woman or man, even in the least likely places in Africa are fully aware how our American lives are over-the-top in ease and over-all wealth – and that we continue to ignore the poorest of Americans and punish other nations and Peoples who won’t toe our line by our using the threat of death via war, albeit – the final consideration.
I think the ways of the past are over – and even if Donald Trump, who is not the brightest or the nicest has changed Democracy’s platform. He, Ben Carson, and Carly Fiorina are the new kids on the political block and this trend of testing new against old will propagate as long as our leaders sit on lethargic egos and waste hours thinking about nothing much but how to get away with additional and astounding nonsense.
Ronald Reagan was the first. Although he had been the governor of California, he was controlled by auto dealers and other groups whose interests were mostly financial. Reagan was a moderately successful actor and television host and the president of a labor union. He won because he was an unusual candidate with a winning smile and a true innocence about him amidst a group of the same old hopefuls.
One other candidate in the past cannot be ignored. He is Ralph Nader who cost Al Gore to lose the White House because there would not have been vote fuss-up between he and George “W” Bush in Florida and New Hampshire. Nader took nearly 100,000 votes and 25 electoral votes from Gore.

The proof that I was correct stood with Brit Hume who stupidly, but truthfully, shouted Fox News had won the choice for right-wing candidates.

There was no dirt, but it was a life-shaking experience to feel the slap of such a man – who I am convinced, is Goering-like in his eagerness to turn the world into a playground for war and wealthy – each feeding the other.

If I had been of like mind I might have done the same – but I was not, and am not. Ailes was rescued by the Supreme Court twice – and those rulings were travesties
Today Ailes is paying a price because the wide-ranging electorate is fully aware of what Fox New really is.

Had he said the same about men – would Kelly have gone after him claiming he was a man-hater?
What hypocrisy she displays inasmuch as Kelly is no example of the New Woman at all. She uses sex and shrieking as her top tools to do in guests or more-important to shape a Megan Moment as its known in the business where she comes out of nowhere and attempts to embarrass her guests.

We can see that nothing is happening in the hallowed halls of Congress on either side and that the GOP has the congress in a headlock from which it does not intend to loosen.

Yes, we are now, a nation of confusion and despair with some desperation. The wealthy are fearful losing their billions. The war between classes – a favorite Fox fairytale – is untrue. It is our leaders who have allowed the rich to become filthy rich – and at the cost of the most vulnerable. The rich want to give back, and some try. The poor do not envy the rich – but they see clearly their excesses amid a world of trouble.
Yet we see men and women like Bill and Melinda Gates, and the wise old owl Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway publicly pledge to give away half their fortunes while other billionaires seem to badly want to join that donor pool. Of course, this has happened all through the past in America and elsewhere, but individually, not in groups too often.
While Donald Trump is not an Astor, a Rockefeller, or a Mellon he too is happy to talk about what he would do for women’s health and the poorest among us – of course and “do it my way”. Bernie Sanders talks of Robin Hood tax laws, and Carly Fiorina at least stabs at the problems of poverty in this wealthy nation.
Moreover – these “atypical” candidates are seemingly part of America’s future. Perhaps these will fail and things will continue on with a yawn until something busts – but the powerful politicians today would do well to watch their own backs because people who are tired of what they see in this, our Democracy. and the ways in which we lead the world will now challenge them repeatedly.
Barack and Michelle Obama are worried that the United States leads too much through the size and might of its vast military, even as it leads the world in do-gooders.
What the Obama’s and their advisors see, better than most, is that new advances in communications have revealed at least part of our own hypocrisy.
Now a woman or man, even in the least likely places on Earth are now fully aware of over-the-top American lives and our general wealth. Those from distant lands also know that we yet ignore the poorest of Americans and that we punish others nations and people’s who won’t toe our line by using the threat of death via war – albeit – the final consideration.
I believe the ways of the past are over or about to end – and that even if Donald Trump, who is not the brightest or the nicest has changed Democracy’s platform. He, Ben Carson, and Carly Fiorina are the new kids on the political block, and this trend of testing new against old will propagate as long as our leaders sit on lazy egos and wasted hours thinking about nothing much but how to get away with some additional nonsense.
Sometimes Americans Just Fall Right in Line
by Jeff Koopersmith
I saw a colleague use this image last week on Twitter and thought I just had to place it in American Politics Journal because it so epitomizes the differences between the North and South of the United States. For one thing this group is celebrating a flag that means – in truth – Let’s keep slavery alive in America. For another the clothing, shades, hip-worn jeans, and the no bra look are also deeply southern – but not charming.
The Tea Party pretends to stand for no government interference in life, but in the end simply stands for freedom to do things that most people with a moral compass don’t do. That makes sense, since people with backgrounds that celebrate true freedom – although none of us truly enjoy it -don’t normally do things that are out of bounds within societal prescripts. That’s not to say that we all don’t break the law sometimes. Some of us cheat a little on our taxes, some of us love to drive over the speed limit, and other simply like to push the envelopment which does include some member of the Tea Party I must admit.
The research done on and with Tea Party is mixed but certain facts stand out, even as the those persons not fitting the “rule” are used as defense.
For instance, the average Tea Party member is not well-educated. In fact according to its own leadership only 2% have earned college degrees of any kind, and only half of those from a four-year accredited university. That small percentage however, controls the pack should it wish to – and it does.
In essence that is where the term “teatard” comes in except that it has two meanings. I have to tell you that I invented that term just weeks after the Tea Party (at least one of them) held their first demonstrations in Washington DC – my second hometown, and where I spent 35 years working as an analyst, strategist, and legislative counsel (aka lobbyist ) for “greenish” clients.
Today I am semiretired but still write op-ed from the left side of the track, however I do believe in the 2nd amendment – while not believing in killing anything living. That means I believe everyone has the right to carry arms within reason, but they have no right to kill innocent creatures that we do not need to survive. I do think, however, that defending ones home is at least an important consideration in these times.
A “teatard” believes that we should all carry weapons all the time, most of them anyway. They also believe, some of them, that we should have to pay taxes for things we don’t use or need. This is a very complex teatardian question because implicit in the query is a need to be a both a masters degree budget analyst and someone who believes that what they read in budgets reflects the truth. It most often does not.
A Tea Party member often has an interesting but low-key rap sheet. You will find DUIs, domestic abuse, truancy, petty theft and more on many tea party background checks. The typical tea party student has a grade point average of C minus and below. They didn’t like school, or were already smarter than their teachers – which is not to be doubted in many instances – especially in the deep south, and even the not-so-deep south like the Carolinas.
People of color are not comfortable with the tea party mainly because the teaps appear at least to be racists. “Nuf said.”
Most tea partiers would never vote for Barack Obama and think that Michelle Obama buts in too much – and is “uppity”.
At the same time, few Tea Party folks will admit they are uncomfortable among other Americans with naturally darker skin, long-term educations, and especially professors.
So there you have it.
What this is, of course, is kind a sentimental goodbye to the Tea Party and its members. What these people will become politically or otherwise is yet to be seen.
I’ll be back once I kind find ’em.
Last year,without consulting Congress, because no president must do so to protect Americans, President Obama made a non-controversial deal that right wing fascists decided to turn into a “scandal”. He traded one American soldier who suffered extremely from PTSD-like symptoms and who one day disappeared. He ended up captive by the Taliban for many years. He was exchanged for five so-called Taliban commanders who had been jailed by the United States at Guantanamo, Cuba. We do not know if they were in fact commanders or if they were simply picked up in a round-up in Afghanistan at some point and held in Cuba. You can be sure, however, that the ultra-right made these five out to be the supreme commanders of all terror worldwide – especially Fox News which continues to do so.
That soldier’s name was Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
The swap was non-controversial by any normal standard because only the President of the United States can make such an agreement as he is the Commander and Chief of the US armed forces and President Obama, after much consideration, decided not to leave an American soldier captive if he could trade roughly a handful of US prisoners captured in the deserts of the Middle-East at Afghanistan. These were early captured Taliban – not good people by any means but were, at that time, considered the legal armed forces of and by Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. – These were not members of Al Qaeda and ISIS did not exist as we know it at that time.
After all, there is not a single American warrior that does not believe that all soldiers must be found – dead or alive – and sent home no matter what is involved. So the President concluded a secret deal with terrorists, but also because the American soldier – Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl – had been captive for so long.
The agreement was secret because it would advertise to other Jihadists that it was possible to make such deals for American prisoners they retained. Sgt. Bergdahl, after the trade, was said to be a “deserter”, from a charge made by more than a few soldiers who served with him in Afghanistan.
In the end however, it may be that the several men who labeled him such showed little decency in not exploring the possible psychological reasons that Bergdahl may have simply put down his weapons and walked into the desert.
Some also report to this writer that the most vocal of his “fellows” about his “deserting” were the same men who teased or tortured him emotionally during the preceding period driving thus him to simply give up fighting with them or anyone – seeing the impossible-to- defeat negativity of these “heroes” who seemed to me to be excessively eager to turn on one of their own so brutishly. There is no proof I can offer here – but I believe that if this is true that the upcoming trial of Bergdahl may reveal it one way or another.
I cannot say that Sgt. Bergdahl was lop-sided, uneven, as are so many of our men and women at war or who have returned from wars over the entire history of the United States – including the Civil War.
What I can say is that it seems conceivable that Bergdahl was simply weakened by what he had witnessed in war and heard at his base, and especially among his comrades. In a sense – he was too thoughtful and not bowled over by the thought of killing men, women and children to help a nation so far from home and having no little or no impact on American lives that he could perceive.
A key to this analysis is that he took no arms nor body armor with him when he departed the day he disappeared – soon to be captured by the enemy and imprisoned.
There is also no proof of the reports his unit. Yet it was accepted and feasted-on by ultra-right-wing Fox News and hosts of television and producers, writers, and on-air personalities that Bergdahl “cooperated” with the Taliban for staying put waiting for the next ugly chapter in his life to occur.
What choice did he have once apprehended?
Everyone recognizes the “Stockholm Syndrome”, an in-situate psychological effect that causes one to befriend, even worship their captors.
This syndrome is prevalent among prisoners of war and kidnap victims worldwide and throughout written history – so that if Sgt. Bergdahl did somehow “do things “(other than share military secrets with the Taliban with which, of course, he had no ongoing access to) Perhaps he did things like teaching, cooking, cleaning or otherwise – This would appear to be normal under the terrorizing circumstances he found himself in if he was ordered to so.
As to the charges that 4, 12, 11, or 17 Americans were killed as a result of searching for Bergdahl. All I can say is this must be proved without any doubt.
Bergdahl did not cause their deaths – their own integrity, heroism, and normal operations would seem to be the cause. It seems to me that those who claim that Bergdahl “murdered” those on patrol looking for him – have no such proof.
The other day, after months of investigation, the United States Army made it official: It charged Bergdahl with one count of desertion and one count of misbehavior before the enemy. If he is found guilty he could spend the rest of his life in prison. Mr. Bernard Goldberg who probably has never served in the military nor knows much about what he yaps on is excited by this.
Goldberg is the is the perfect foil for that ninny Bill O’Reilly, a proven liar himself according to latest reports – and having never served their country in war it seems from their biographies. O’Reilly served only as a profligate reporter who claimed to be where he wasn’t and to have seen what he didn’t or so they sat.
Bernard Goldberg – much to his disgrace continually mocks Bergdahl and the President because he is miscarried reporter like so many on-air personalities without brains who clutter up that not-widely-viewed Fox News cable channel.
Fox calls itself a News Station – but it is anything but. Starting at 5 o’clock in the morning – Fox “News” begins its tirades against Democrats, progressives, and non-fascist Republicans who don’t toe the Fox/neocon/neofascist line which pushed us into the terror of the Middle East and North Africa via the fiendish Dick Cheney – Fox’ motorman at the time – and his beer-buddy boss who knew no better than not to follow President Eisenhower’s advice about those who appear to love war – as long as they are not in it – but profit from it.
Goldberg asks was the Bergdahl swap worth it?
OF course it was you jackass.
How despicable can Goldberg be?
Plenty – Goldberg is a pitiful catastrophe as a human being and is now no more than a sad sidekick of Bill O’Reilly who is a propagandist and a liar of great repute. His forte’ seemed to be sports news but he may have studied international relations and military law at The Mad Magazine foundation.
President Obama told us, “We have a basic principle, we do not leave anybody wearing the American uniform behind,” and he did not apologize as Fox News suggested he do – in yet another rectal demonstration of hocus pocus aimed at this the first Black President – a constant diatribe that has never been seen before in history.
Remember Fox News pretends to coddle the First Amendment and the fake-journalist shield it hides behind without practicing journalism – yet the only thing Fox loves about Freedom of Speech is that they can’t be sued for producing schlock “opinion” news.
Roger Aisles himself once remarked that Fox was not much more than a propaganda family show – but he was lying. At the time he said that I believed he could have been jailed for Treason and certainly indicted, along with dozens of others at Fox for violating Federal Election Law by screening 24/7 commercials for the Republican National Committee candidates.
Ailes is not stupid, but he is evil. When I took him on about this situation publicly he hired private investigators to find dirt on me. I have the proof for that and so do my acquaintances and partners. Yet I am sure he will deny it or cook up some fantasy.
Now thanks to the fascists on the right sitting on our Supreme Court – Fox can do and say whatever it likes and give as much FREE money in non-stop support of the right-wing – which could amount to billions if it chooses – credited of course, only to the candidates Fox favors – and none other.
The White House continues to ignore Fox and its apparatchiks with White House Communications Director Jen Psaki (who Fox also attempted to destroy along with Maria Harf) said the swap was “absolutely worth it.”
You are so very correct Jen. I would trade 100 sick and confused terrorists for one American military boy or girl or any American – dead, alive – or whatever.
Bernard Goldberg perhaps knows he will rot in Hell for what he does, and God forgive him, for he most likely needs to the cash to stay alive since he has closed every possible “real” job with the networks he could have by claiming everyone in the news media is as phony and moronic as he certainly is in my non-humble opinion.
Goldberg goes on hanging himself morally – Writing
“It is arguably a noble idea that the United States of America does not leave any American in uniform behind, as a matter of principle — no matter what he might have done. But getting an American, even one now charged with desertion out of captivity is one thing; trying to turn him into a heroic figure is something else.”
Goldberg thinks he is serving his aged puppeteer Bill O’Reilly who seems to relish that he and everyone on Fox have made Sgt. Bergdahl into a kind of criminal joke. But I can assure you there are many veterans and other serving today who think Fox News is a distasteful joke and an embarrassment to them and the horrifying job many of our warriors must do to protect us from whatever they are protecting us from. These are the true brave men and women who put their lives on the line for Goldberg et al, not bantam rats who appear on cable television and elsewhere to put diamond nails in the coffin of Sgt. Bergdahl who did nothing much more than, for some reason, become disgusted with death and destruction and now found nobody and nowhere to turn he could trust.
Bergdahl appears to have told his attorney that he was hiking off to report the terrible situation in his area. I don’t know if he was – and I don’t fret about that – because he went unarmed and without anything much more than a pair of pants and a shirt.
If he was so wicked why didn’t he frag someone at his camp or blow up a tank or some such?
Bernard Goldberg – a horrible man because his treason aimed at American Values, poisons his body. He also loves to mock President Obama and the Rose Garden ceremony where Bergdahl and his mom and dad were introduced to the world.
The president was proud to have obtained Bergdahl’ s release with the help of others in the military and the usual go-betweens yet people like Goldberg – and you know who you are – are submissively bowing to the nearly-insane Roger Ailes in my opinion, ready to cut Bergdahl’ s throat any way they could just to sell more advertising time.
Goldberg describes Bergdahl thus:
“There was the post-swap ceremony in the White House Rose Garden, the president walking arm-in-arm with Bergdahl’ s parents, giving the impression that Bowe Bergdahl was some kind of war hero returning home. Was that celebration – on national television — necessary? Was it intended to do anything more than make Mr. Obama look good as he was winding down the war in Afghanistan?”
Could anyone be as gangrenous and insane as Goldberg? Could anyone be as sick and bloodthirsty – drooling over what may have been a beaten man who tried to do his best for his country more than once and in the end, left in panic and disgust?
But Goldberg is not finished. He then attacked Susan Rice for telling us that “Sgt. Bergdahl had “served the United States with honor and distinction.”
Yes, no matter what the outcome. Bergdahl may have finally failed from the strain – but he was honorable and did serve with distinction as does any American soldier we send to do our needed but dirty work even if they don’t do it filthy enough.
Bernie Goldberg isn’t fit to lick the muddy soles of Susan Rice’s shoes and he has no right at all to claim she made up a story about Benghazi – the Hitlerian junta of Congress’ favorite mental cases are the only ones who might agree.
Yes, Rice is yet the President’s National Security Adviser, and Thank God. Can you imagine if some slob like “Bush’s Brain” — Herr Karl Rove – held such an important post – as he nearly did in the Bush-Cheney white house? Would Rove be a better choice – because he sure loves to beat-up on Bergdahl as well and participated in almost every lie and pose at the Bush-Cheney White House. (With glee)
And no- everything is not fair – in war or in politics you animals.
Bernard Goldberg, because he has little talent – either written or oral – makes his exit from his humiliating piece of tripe by telling us that Bergdahl and Obama “polarized” America. That the neocons think Obama is “out of his depth” and that “liberals” which are – in essence – the thinkers and academics of this nation who played and play a key role in bringing the USA as far as we have come – would approve of anything Obama did.
Bill O’Reilly and Bernie Goldberg – the Laurel and Hardy of the American Right Wing News Gestapo, were beside themselves with joy when it was announced that Sgt. Bergdahl would militarily tried, after months and months of distortion and lies and non-stop criticism of President Obama. Sgt. Berghdahl who did little more than collapse under the anxiety brought by war, and by American tormentors who drag him through their mud at every opportunity to sell a damn book
Goldberg and O’Reilly are thoughtless and malevolent men. Worse, they are vampires feeding on the blood of war. Sure, O’Reilly now a multimillionaire on the backs of idiots who believe in him – donates lots of cash to veterans. That’s easy to do but I I would suggest that he does so to assuage his guilt.
How he can sleep is beyond me- truly.
Goldberg signs off in his latest laughable and hateful “column” that no one reads : “But for those in the middle, for those without any particular pro or anti-Obama ideology, the deal the president made — given the charges just filed against Sgt. Bergdahl — cannot sit well.”
That sentence makes no sense, but let’s leaves that be.
Hate to tell you Bennie, you contemptible gadget – We Americans are in the middle, we on the right, and we on the left we are horrified by what you wrote here and the things you say about this man Bowe Bergdahl.
If I were you – I would put a pistol on my belt and volunteer to fight against the Jihad – And do it personally.
Sure Bernie – just go to Syria and volunteer as an unpaid aging helper – and, like so many, surrender yourself to the nearest Army or Marine Lieutenant instead serving up our children to these desert crazies. I would appreciate it. Or maybe you can review films for Stars and Stripes?
That’s more your depth.
But you won’t will you? – Because you are just a nothing – a whining, frightened old man who is the subject of sneers from your professional peers and most likely, I would guess, your own family.
You sicken me, and I was someone who once held you in esteem when no one else bothered.
Please, Stay out of public view. Quit Fox. Stop writing your drivel and play some golf or swim with the porpoises.
You’re a pariah.

By Jeff Koopersmith
It’s my job to fight neo-facist scum for the majority in my country who don’t want that heretic infections burning in our political or governmental souls.
If you trusted Charles Krauthammer to guide you, you would find this is his sole obsessive purpose. I am not certain why and I hope he conducts his terrorizing because he needs the money form the Washington Post and Fox News and whatever idiot publisher puts his tripe in bookcases – especially school libraries where it is sure to be read by some poor friendless nerd while salivating – Some Cheney-like figure who hasn’t a soul but does have exaggerated plans for his future that will cost you not him. His first Pulitzer finalist but not won was in 1986 Pulitzer said: “Charles Krauthammer of The Washington Post – For his gracefully written and clear commentary on a variety of issues. Gracefully written? Gee what happened, did he make a deal with Satan over the ensuing thirty years?
Only 27 years ago, in 1986, Krauthammer finally got his hands on a Pulitzer – this time: For his witty and insightful columns on national issues. Ah, is that what humiliating people is about today – Being witty? Certainly not Krauthammer these days – more like: For “a horror of half truth” with a stuck on the end sniggle of wit.
I truly wish the Pulitzer Board would withdraw his “prize” – as he is a blight on what once was a wonderful organization honoring worthy people – not like Krauthammer – open to say anything for the right sized check.. Krauthammer does not think anyone can write their truth as they see it about him.
But I must say I getting sick reading his slime. Sick.
I do have to give on bit of Gestapo credit to Chuck Krauthammer – National’s fan extraordinaire. Only he would think of opening a piece on Hillary Clinton with these words:
By Charles Krauthammer Opinion writer March 12 (The Washington Post)
“She burned the tapes.“
As if that is what he enjoy to engrave on her headstone.
With that he hatefully links Hillary Clinton with the shame of the nation to Richard Nixon – who was not forced to resign simply because he or his lapdog secretary erased some audio tape, but because he was simply a horrible and criminal man who had little right to finishing another term as President of United States – and yeah – I know, China – well Nixon didn’t do that – our old friend and bed-liar Henry Kissinger who did that. Thanks to God his final chapter is coming.
Worse, Krauthammer spits that Hillary “learned” from Nixon when she was a young’in on the House Judiciary Committee investigating Nixon. Not everyone is like Krauthammer a mean-spirited ego-maniacal run of the mill opinion writer who picks up awards because everyone feels sorry for such an ugly, ugly man.
If it’s a Democrat – Krauthammer has nothing good to say – but he is silent on the current parade of neo-Nazis now running the House and Senate thanks to the trailer park Tea Party and a gaggle of billionaires who use them and who want nothing from us but to leave them to their own “deviousness” that plunged the world into a multi-year depression that still hasn’t recovered – nor had its most terrible impacts. That will come soon enough – but Krauthammer will blame that on Obama – not on Dick Cheney who should be in prison for what he wrought.
You can refer back to a previous column of mine this month where I explained why I think Secretary Clinton decided to set up her own very secure server. See http://americanpolitics.com/2015/03/13/hillarys-e-mail-server-zzzzzzzzzzzzzz/
Of course, The Kraut does not go very far with the email ploy, what he seeks to do is follow orders from his handlers (Fox News?) or (?) which use his questionable talents to harm everything progressive.
Krauthammer is the perfect prick for this saddle soaping work. He is mean-spirited, self-loathing, and as phony as a magician, but not as entertaining.
Who he does entertain are deathbed octogenarians and neo-Nazis who eagerly read his pap and gawk at him on Fox. I know, I am not supposed to go after Krauthammer – he is in a wheelchair, and that is a terrible cross to bear when you are also a classic over-appreciated asshole and one great reason this country is close to a civil war re “Need vs. Greed.” Krauthammer is on the greed side. And, by the way, takes his clues for FDR about hiding his physical disability – am I mean enough now?
Of course the Clinton Foundation contributions are personal. There isn’t a presidential-related charitable organization that has done so much for all of the world – not just the people of nations that Krauthammer approves of. Thus, if the foundation took donations from Arabs, or Islamist, or Chinese – it is tainted.
What a pitiful moron.
To top it off Krauthammer uses Bill Safire another oversold smut peddler who might be that best example of an idiot neocon since Senator Joe McCarthy was hunting for Commies under every bed- even as many died from his mania, from grief or by their own hand.
Of course Krauthammer doesn’t think he’s ever humiliated someone enough to force them into suicide. Yet, I’ll wager he has, He almost takes my own life every time I realize that The Kraut won a Pulitzer in a nation that was once totally far-sighted and ready to help anyone who might need it – not lynch them. Krauthammer is so seventy-years-ago it is a disgrace to his profession – hit-man.
Safire said that Hillary Clinton was a “congenital liar”- when she was First Lady and Krauthammer underlines this despicably to make his nasty and fraudulent statement look supported – and by whom? The laughing stock of reality.
Hillary Clinton did owe any of us an “explanation” of why she had her own mail server.
The simple answer is that our own CIA, NSA, NCID, FBI Homeland Security etc. people can’t do their job because of budget cuts from the neocons and therefore email and other information stored in American government “servers” are hacked daily.
So, perhaps Hilary was smart installing her little computer – which is all that a server is. It didn’t attract the attention of nut jobs had her email account been: SecretaryOfState.Gov as the Evil creep Krauthammer implies without knowledge or courage.
Yes, that’s the right Krauthammer – ” the server containing the e-mails — owned, controlled and housed by Hillary Clinton — “will remain private.” Meaning: No one will get near them. yes, no will get near them – and that’s how it should be. Why don’t you publish your email over the past 100 years Krauthammer? I am sure it would keep us all laughing and weeping for you at the same time.
And read this Kraut pap verbatim:
“This she learned not from Watergate but from Whitewater. Her husband acquiesced to the appointment of a Whitewater special prosecutor. Hillary objected strenuously. Her fear was that once someone is empowered to search, the searcher can roam freely. In the Clinton’s case, it led to impeachment because when the Lewinsky scandal broke, the special prosecutor added that to his portfolio.” – Charles Krauthammer 12 March 2015, Washington Post – owned by a sort-of department store maven.
Every defense lawyer worth his or her salt knows that opening one’s life to a federal prosecutor – or most any prosecutor can lead, almost assuredly, that the investigator will find, or make up something to prop up a weak or no case at all. And to drag that vile creep Ken Starr into the mix is typically Krauthammer who didn’t even have the spine to mention that loser’s name – who is now hiding out in Malibu at some third class law school. Why not add some of the antics of Hitler as well Chuck: That would get your type of reader’ s attention and maybe another Pulitizer award.
Let’s say Hillary did keep her mail private. Now that is simply impossible to understand. After all, this woman has been blamed for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi which could, of course, not be true. And now she has to speak up for her and her family’s foundation to a group of do-nothing members of congress. Well, maybe “do-nothing” is not the correct characterization – perhaps it a “Make Sure nothing is done for anyone but warriors and arms manufacturers” – and not too much for warriors.
Krauthammer might not have labeled Hillary Clinton a liar if she told us that she kept her own email server because she didn’t trust cretins like Darrell Issa and Tom Cotton et al,or spies like Mr. Snowden or the very active Chinese, British, and German intelligence fiends who are constantly testing our Intel’s back doors. How could she do that? – she loves her country – and has given up a great deal of her life to us, to us – for very little recompense save for the past several years where her popularity and her husband’s allowed them to make a pile of money – which, I suppose, Krauthammer is envious.
Then the biggest laugh – that the Secretary of State is simply an “employee”. I don’t think so Krauthammer – and I don’t suppose you are an employee either – you probably have your own communications corporation – Krauthammer Irrational”.
So mini-minded Krauthammer says her “answers” Clinton’s answers are farcical – as if she wasn’t being pinned to the wall by the most farcical group on earth – the modern news media who has the nerve to call themselves journalists when they are in fact unprepared to pen a good freshman essay in middle School.
The point of National Archive regulations is NOT to ensure government transparency as Krauthammer well knows, although he claims that. Regulations, especially by the Archive, are made to be bendable and even ignored and are written by other silly-minds who compose them in the clerks offices. Her lawyers have not to stonewall all the fake subpoenas launched by idiots in congress and the media knowing they have no legality – They must instead ask for felony indictments on those abusing – raping – the system simply for their own political or monetary wellbeing ergo – to destroy the chances for Mrs. Clinton’s election to the presidency. Now that is a felony . Look it up.
Krauthammer write “the damage is done.” Yes, it is Mr. K. The damage to your own reputation continues to erode the reader’s confidence in a terrible mind.
What isn’t finished is the price you pay for writing such garbage and not being able to rise higher on the decency scale rather than sit in a filthy pit filled with vipers from the right. -Real vipers – not the usual alzy McCain types.
Straight off the Fox New SCRIPTS, huh Krauthammer, who then asks about her “record”. I thought he was going to tell us that she had a long arrest records or worse, but no:
“What record? She’s had three major jobs. Secretary of state: Can you name a single achievement in four years? U.S. senator: Can you name a single achievement in eight years? First lady: her one achievement in eight years? Hillarycare, a shipwreck.
I could name fifty you guttersnipe.
Chuck adds that Hillary Clinton is running on two things: gender and name. What a disreputable thing to say – and of course just a another lie from the King of Lies.
Gender is not to be underestimated. It will make her the Democratic nominee. The name is equally valuable. It evokes the warm memory of the golden 1990s, a decade of peace and prosperity during our holiday from history.
No, not a holiday from history Mr. Krauthammer – a holiday from neofacist pigs who will destroy America with their unceasing avarice and carelessness with the lives of our boys and girls fighting and risking life and limb in trumped up “wars” and the following destruction of an entire region and its history while millions of the poorest flee their homes and live in cheap tents on the desert floor.
To attempt to “finish her off” The Kraut writes
“Now breaking through, however, is a stark reminder of the underside of that Clinton decade: the chicanery, the sleaze, the dodging, the parsing, the wordplay. It’s a dual legacy that Hillary Clinton cannot escape and that will be a permanent drag on her candidacy.”
Yet Hillary Clinton was not a symptom of that decade. She tried so long ago to provide health care to the poorest Americans and was burned at the stake by people like Charles Krauthammer.
She did not engage in chicanery – only in protecting herself and her family from scum like Kenneth Starr et al. She was not sleazy was she Herr Kraut!? And none of that will be a drag on her candidacy because the American people even the trash you seem to cater to so often – don’t feel the way you do. They adore Bill and Hillary Clinton because their aims are progressive and decent.
You goals, on the other hand, are to humiliate and lie about people you wish were your friends and not, instead, the scum you hang with. My God man – didn’t you learn anything from your parents or your religion?
Oh yes – and to follow his hero – Bill O’Reilly – prevaricator extreme – Krauthammer offers us a true leftist and progressive and someone I have the deepest respect for – Elizabeth Warren – who would take his suggestion that she was a cure for Hillary as nauseating.
