President Barack Obama is in his last gasp as POTUS scurrying to and fro creating as much mayhem as he possibly can in the final moments of his tenure in that old public housing relic known as the White House aka Crap House. And what would one expect? Come Friday at high noon he’s no longer POTUS so he and his staff are in a rush! He named several sports stars to various administrative positions today and also named Valerie Jarrett and Susan Rice to the Board of Trustees for an infamous arts center. But his most controversial move made today involves Obama’s decision to commute the majority of the prison sentence for Chelsea Manning formerly Bradley Manning and the GOP is outraged!!
Manning was convicted of ESPIONAGE and other charges back in 2013 after stealing secret documents from a government computer system while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq and leaked them to Wikileaks in 2010. Thus, he betrayed America and committed espionage in this position while serving in the US Army! Manning was caught, arrested, tried, found guilty, and sentenced to federal prison for his act of treason. Now along come Obama and commutes most of his prison sentence! Further, while in prison Manning underwent a sex change from a male to a female and the formerly Bradley is now known as Chelsea.
Manning was sentenced to 35 years imprisonment and has served 7 years at Ft Leavenworth. As a result of Obama’s commutation Manning will now be set free in 5 months on May 17 of this year!
Speaker Paul Ryan blasted today’s decision calling it “outrageous” noting Manning’s treachery put American lives at risk and exposed some of our nation’s most sensitive secrets. “President Obama now leaves in place a dangerous precedent that those who compromise our national security won’t be held accountable for their crimes,” Ryan said in a public statement.
US Senator Tom Cotton who is a veteran noted that when he was leading US soldiers in Afghanistan, Private Manning “was undermining us by leaking thousands of documents to Wikileaks.” Cotton went on to say in a public statement, “I don’t understand why the president would feel special compassion for someone who endangered the lives of our troops, diplomats, intelligence officers, and allies. We ought not treat a traitor like a martyr.” Well Senator Cotton not only is Manning a TRAITOR but so is the man who pardoned him today BARACK OBAMA!!! Traitors stick together don’t you know? Besides Obama has himself done anything and everything he can to weaken the US and our military so this is just one final gasp giving life to his own TREASON!
Arizona Republican Senator John McCain who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee said the commutation is a “grave mistake.” He said his fear is that it will encourage further acts of espionage and undermine military discipline. “It also devalues the courage of real whistleblowers who have used proper channels to hold our government accountable,” McCain said. “It is sad, yet perhaps fitting commentary on President Obama’s failed national security policies,” he continued, “that he would commute the sentence of an individual that endangered the lives of American troops” and others. McCain branded Wikileaks as a “virulently anti-American organization” and called it a “tool of Russia.”
In days gone by those convicted of espionage and treason would have been executed if found guilty which is fitting for any and all TRAITORS in my opinion! But nowadays we simply slap them on the hands and tell them not to do it again and send them on their way.
Barack Obama lauds himself endlessly as we all know because in his own mind he thinks he’s really been a fantastic POTUS. But the reality is that Barack Obama has done very little as POTUS other than make every effort he can to use back doors when he doesn’t get his way and to weaken the US any way he can. As far as Black America is concerned this first Black president has done absolutely NOTHING! He hasn’t worked to improve the lives of black Americans and, in fact, has done everything he can to promote disunity in this country! Obama has now joined the ranks of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and some other self-proclaimed civil rights leaders who have done NOTHING to really help the plight of Black America! These people EXPLOIT black America! They enrich themselves! Barack Obama is a multimillionaire as is Al Sharpton et al. Meanwhile, black America continues to suffer all the way around!!
I would say Obama ought to be ashamed of himself but Obama has no shame and never has. He is, in fact, possibly the most egotistical man to every occupy the Crap House in my opinion! Of course, Donald Trump has a pretty big ego too and he may even outdo Obama’s ego! Time will tell. Well 3 days from now we can all say bye-bye to Obama’s BANANA REPUBLIC and “hello” to Trump’s CORPORATIST FASCIST REICH!
