Who Will Lie to this Soldier’s Family?

Posted by madjillmom on October 24, 2015

Master Sgt. Wheeler’s body is coming into Dover AFB soon. Someone should ask Hillary to come to the ceremony to lie to his family. She can do it so easily.

I guess that won’t happen. Perhaps Ashe Carter will ask the family to ignore the bullets in his remains and be pleased he wasn’t actually fighting when he fell. Perhaps they can dig up a You-tube video to blame it on. Obama will probably be playing golf somewhere after vetoing the defense bill in favor of more welfare spending.

ISIS/ISIL is very happy they have taken this brave man. Rest in Peace Master Sgt Wheeler.

Bowe Bergdahl and the Slow Walk “Investigation”

Posted by madjillmom on March 25, 2015

Even the Army couldn’t let this go any longer. Bowe was traded last May. The Army already had the goods on him. All they really needed to do was to interview Bergdahl. That interview took a few months at best. Then a few months more to connect up all the dots. Then about 6 months stalling before coming out today with charges against this possible deserter. In the meantime, Obama continues to be a fool. Five Taliban returned to fight us again. One stupid and confused young man now on trial for desertion. Why did Obama have to make it a celebration? It was a political move that served two purposes. The country was up in arms about the rise of ISIL/ISIL so “bringing home a brave soldier” was a way to look like he cared. Also, it served the greater goal of emptying Guantanamo. His error was his zeal to toot his horn with Bowe’s weird parents in the Rose Garden. A pat on the back, self-administered on the news. “Look at me, look at me, I love the military!!!”

I believe pressure was brought to bear by Hagel to keep this under investigation for as long as they could. Hagel is gone and the bad news is now out.

As an aside, Susan Rice is an idiot.

Obama, the Military, and Quarantine

Posted by madjillmom on October 29, 2014

Pres. Obama came out today to tell us just how unfair it is to the volunteers who treat Ebola to quarantine them upon their return. Somewhere along the way, they deserve the benefit of the doubt.

The military, who the Obama administration says will not be treating Ebola victims must have a 21 day quarantine, but the people who actually treat Ebola victims must not be stigmatized by such an indignity.  Where is the Ebola Czar and what does he think?

Lost Gains in Iraq vs. Obama’s Good War in Afghanistan

Posted by madjillmom on October 3, 2014

It was a bit comical last night to see Jen Psaki (State Department Spokeswoman) being interviewed by Megyn Kelly last night. Megyn was asking about the bombshell from Leon Panetta about why Obama left Iraq against lots of advice not to. Jen Psaki kept saying that leaving 10,000 wouldn’t have been able to keep Iraq stable and free of ISIS/ISIL. Kept repeating that many troops would have been ineffective. The Pentagon wanted to leave behind 24000 troops and Maliki turned down Obama’s offer of 5000 troops left in Iraq. This is at the very same time that the Obama administration announces a Status of Forces agreement with Afghanistan of less than 10,000 troops.

So Obama left Iraq because of politics according to Panetta. He didn’t try very hard to leave forces in Iraq even though he and Hillary had lots of leverage. But Obama now thinks less than 10,000 can stay behind in Afghanistan and keep his “good war” gains in place. Jen Psaki also praised John Kerry’s brilliant effort in securing a less than 10,000 troops agreement. Jen Psaki kept telling Megyn that even the surge of troops was unable to contain Al Qaeda. How exactly did the story change during late 2011 that Al Qaeda was decimated. Lots of different stories out of this administration.

Army Pink Slips

Posted by madjillmom on July 10, 2014

Obama and Chuck Hagel are sending out pink slips to members of the Army. I guess they need more room for the “refugees”  to move into the military bases around the country. We keep cutting the military but Obama wants us to find borrow $3.7 billion to feed, cloth, house, and process the people coming into our country illegally. Perhaps all the Army Captains being let go could get jobs de-lousing our future citizens and changing their diapers.

Meanwhile, back in Iraq, ISIS has gotten ahold of some nuclear material.

Illegal Alien Tsunami Reaching Ft. Sill, OK

Posted by madjillmom on June 10, 2014

Update: Pres. Obama is asking for $2 billion to handle this surge of illegal immigrants. He is also trying to figure out if he can put them under the umbrella of his Dream Act by fiat.

As a military mom, I monitor Face Book activity on the posts and bases my sons are attached to. Yesterday, we received a notice on FB (from Fires Center of Excellence) to tell the community that 1200 children in the unexpected tsunami (Obama created) of illegal aliens (minor children) overwhelming the border are coming to Ft. Sill to be housed where soldiers used to be housed. There is a huge wave of illegal aliens crossing the border that Border Patrol has been instructed to let through. These people have been told that they will not be turned away. This is the consequence of Obama and his Dream Act by fiat as well as other measures, such a less deportation, and less enforcement. It had to happen. Obama put out a big red neon WELCOME sign.  Now we have a humanitarian crisis on our hands. Obama must warehouse these people and will not ever be seen to deny them anything. But this will ultimately defeat immigration reform.

So now, Obama’s actions have produced a new and large burden on us all. These 1200 people must now be housed, clothed, fed, and given medical care. This will cost money. Our money. Lawyers are already being hired by the government to handle these people. More people will be hired to look after them while they are warehoused. A huge system will be put in place. Legal immigration will grind to a halt while all this is handled.

The Border Patrol is babysitting, not able to monitor the border as well due to the wave of children and some mothers. So you can bet so really bad guys are getting in while all this stuff is going on. The Border Patrol agent that leaked the children warehoused like sardines is threatened with loss of his job. Obama can’t keep the lid on this much longer.

People in the Lawton/Ft. Sill area are concerned. What about schooling? Will their school have to accommodate these children?

FEMA and Department of Health and Human Services are in charge of these people. So if a big hurricane does come, I hope the money is there. Remember the Obamacare rollout. These are the people in charge of this wave of humanity. They will be released to family or sponsors. A ticket to stay. More are coming.

Here is the press release from FB page:

PRESS RELEASE
Fort Sill to support Federal Interagency mission

Fort Sill –Fort Sill has been identified to support a U.S. federal interagency effort being coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to respond to a recent unexpected influx of unaccompanied children from other countries. Following Joint Base San Antonio and Naval Base Ventura County, the installation becomes the third Department of Defense facility to support this mission.

The children were primarily apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Protection along the southern U.S. border and are now being cared for by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families (ACF). The installation will receive these children in the coming days and they will be under ACF care. Fort Sill’s headquarters are assisted by U.S. Northern Command on how to best support this important interagency mission.

ACF will provide caretakers for between 600-1200 children that will temporarily reside on the installation. The agency will maintain responsibility to ensure the safety, care and treatment of the unaccompanied minors. Fort Sill will provide a vacant facility historically used by Soldiers set apart from main post that offers sleeping quarters, bathing and toilet facilities, as well as multi-purpose gathering space.

The children may arrive as early as this week and will continue to reside under ACF’s care on the installation until the children can be reunited with their families or placed with a sponsor. Fort Sill anticipates supporting the interagency mission for up to four months or as long as directed. The Fires Center of Excellence and Fort Sill does not currently assess that its primary mission of training and deploying Soldiers and Marines will be significantly impacted by this temporary arrangement.

NOTE: Please remember OPSEC. Only what is above is releasable. These are children and that means a different set of rules that many are used to. Fort Sill PAO is able to answer only very limited questions and we are required to defer most questions to DHHS.

Obama Helps Me Buy a Car

Posted by madjillmom on June 4, 2014

I asked Obama to help me buy a car. We went to the used car dealer. I think we found the perfect one. I asked our wise leader to help me by negotiating the price. So off he went. He came back a while later.

I am so happy. I now am the proud owner of a ’72 Pinto. It needs a little work. A new engine and the body has some issues. It has 157,000 miles on it. I only had to pay $10,000.  Thanks, Pres. Obama. You really helped.

Bowe Bergdahl

Posted by madjillmom on June 4, 2014

More stuff is coming out about Bowe and his issues. Who knows what to believe.

Here is what I want. I want Bowe to be a misguided young man and not a deserter or traitor. I want Obama and his administration to tell us the truth. When I see him blinking in the cab of the Taliban pickup truck, I just react as mother. I want him to be a brave and unlucky soldier. I want him to be idealistic and not stupid. I want him to be clear-eyed in his love of America. I worry that I will be disappointed about all this.

I predict that Obama and his underlings will soon come out and tell us that because there is an investigation going on, they cannot comment. Later, around November, when they are asked, they will say this is a really old story and can’t we just move forward.

More Bergdahl Lies

Posted by madjillmom on June 4, 2014

This morning a video has been released by the Taliban. It shows Bowe Bergdahl walking to the helicopter in relative decent health. The Obama administration has used his health as a reason for not following the law that requires informing congress of the swap. Turns out they lied.

Another lie. The first is Susan Rice telling us he served with “honor and distinction”. Another lie is that the Taliban 5 will be well monitored in Qatar. About the same time the President was telling this lie, Rueters was putting out a story about just how little supervision is going to be there for the Taliban Dream Team.

Next lie to be debunked will be the notion that there was a change in status for the Taliban 5. The President says they are not as dangerous and could be traded. Two years ago, they were too dangerous to trade. The administration has evidently chosen to ignore the experts on these men and relabeled them as docile jihadists in order to trade him for Bowe Bergdahl. Now that some of the most dangerous have left Gitmo, most others will follow.

Obama and his administration had planned that his Rose Garden moment with the parents of Bowe would make him look like he really cares about our troops. It was designed to divert attentions away from the VA scandal. They expected the press to be compliant and play it like they planned. Too bad a lot of info is coming out to debunk the lies.

Negotiating with Terrorists

Posted by madjillmom on June 1, 2014

Obama and Chuck Hagel want to call it just an amazing coincidence and not a trade. They have negotiated with the Taliban and released 5 high level Taliban in exchange for our captured Bowe Bergdahl. While I am thrilled for his strange parents, I am worried for all our troops remaining in Afghanistan. They all have a much greater risk of being captured now. The Taliban want all their prisoners released so expect more troops to be captured and traded 5 bad guys for 1 good guy. More really smart stuff out of Obama and his administration. 

If I was the mother of one of the 9800 to stay in Afghanistan through 2016, I would be in constant fear.
