Kidnapping and Invasion – Obama’s Unintended Consequences

Posted by madjillmom on June 6, 2014

Dream Act by Fiat and Multiple Proposals for Anmesty for Illegal Aliens:

Unintended Consequence: Rumor to the south send thousands of unaccompanied children and some mothers to our borders. Now we are acting surprised and the people guarding the border are warehousing these people. Picture show them packed like sardines. Oh, and we need lots more money to house them, because we aren’t sending them back to where they came.

Trade 5 Big-Wig Taliban for one American:

Unintended Consequence: Memos going out to military in Afghanistan after bad guys state they are now focused on kidnapping and trading. I wonder if there is a similar memo going out to State Department staff? Obama says it had to be done. Now what happens when it happens again. Empty Gitmo!

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.

Bowe Bergdahl

Posted by madjillmom on June 3, 2014

He was young. He was evidently raised by a pretty weird dad. Homeschooled. Bright but maybe somehow off? He joined. He was not drafted.

My own sons (3) are in the active duty military. One has been deployed. They have all been disappointed and discouraged in their respective branches and in the military. They did not walk off. If they did, they would be prosecuted.

Lots of bad stuff coming out about this young man. Bringing him home is good. But trading him for 5 high value detainees is really bad. If Special Forces knew where he was, why didn’t they go get him? Why trade?

Why have a rose garden ceremony with Pres. Obama? Why have non-disclosure agreements with his unit to keep things quiet? Why didn’t the White House read the Rolling Stone article? They sure read the one about McCrystal real quick? Why send out Susan Rice with some more really bad information?

So many questions…

Will there ever be answers?

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.

Are Islamists Smarter than 5th Graders?

Posted by madjillmom on July 11, 2012

Islamists are starting to pressure the new Muslim Brotherhood Leader of Egypt to tear down the Pyramids.

In Mali, Islamists are destroying aftifacts in Timbuktu, including tombs in a historical Mosque.

Remember that the Taliban destroyed famous Buddhist statues in Afghanistan.

Other Islamist/Imam from Egypt is telling his followers to not eat tomatoes because they are Christian. Evidently fruits and vegetables are religious.  What about the cantaloupes?  What about dates?

So many of these people are led by those deprived of oxygen at birth.  Bernard Lewis mentions in his book “What Went Wrong” that the population shuns iodized salt and this is one of the reasons for why they can believe such things.

Why are these people so stupid and intolerant?
