Judge to Rule on Whether to Dismiss Bergdahl Trial Due to Trump’s Opinion of Traitorous Deserter…Really?
I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of U.S. soldier is just the lie of fools. – Bowe Bergdahl
According to The New York Times,
At his first major court hearing two years ago, it seemed that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had caught a break: the Pentagon’s hostage debriefer, Terrence Russell, testified that the sergeant had “done the best job he could do” during the five years he was held by the Taliban, resisting his captors and attempting escape despite suffering the worst prisoner-of-war abuse since Vietnam. The military’s own investigator rejected widespread claims that soldiers had died while searching for the sergeant, and recommended against punishing him with any jail time.
But Sergeant Bergdahl is now facing up to life in prison. A week ago, he appeared here at Fort Bragg and essentially capitulated, pleading guilty to all charges. On Monday, he returned to the courtroom in a final attempt to have the case dismissed. His sentencing hearing is set to begin on Wednesday.
How did his legal fortunes turn so drastically? Many things have been at play. The sergeant’s own statements to investigators went a long way toward proving the charges. The defense team lost on some crucial motions, including one in which the judge ruled that service members had been wounded during the search. And politics have dogged the case, with defense lawyers arguing that their client cannot get a fair trial because Donald J. Trump repeatedly called Sergeant Bergdahl a traitor during the presidential election last year.
By taking full responsibility for the actions he is accused of, legal experts say, Sergeant Bergdahl is probably making a last-ditch bid for mercy.
The sergeant was released in May 2014, when President Barack Obama traded five Taliban detainees for him. Mr. Obama embraced Sergeant Bergdahl’s parents in the Rose Garden, and his national security adviser, Susan E. Rice, said the sergeant had served with “honor and distinction.”
That set off a political furor that ultimately became a presidential campaign issue. Mr. Trump made calls of “dirty rotten traitor” a staple of his speeches, and said the sergeant should be executed.
“Bing, bong!” Mr. Trump told his supporters, mimicking the sound of a rifle shot as he pantomimed a firing squad.
The judge in the case, Col. Jeffery R. Nance of the Army, called Mr. Trump’s comments “disturbing,” but rejected a defense motion to dismiss the case on the ground that a fair trial was impossible. On Monday, Colonel Nance heard another, similar motion after President Trump appeared to endorse his campaign-trail sentiments.
“They’re setting up sentencing, so I’m not going to comment on him,” Mr. Trump said when asked about the case. “But I think people have heard my comments in the past.”
The judge is expected to rule on the new motion before Wednesday.
Let’s review the story of the father and son team of traitors, known as the Bergdahls, shall we?
“I’m thinking of joining the Army,” he told his folks after already having signed up.
Bergdahl’s dream was to help Afghan villagers rebuild their lives and learn to defend themselves, his dad told the magazine.
“The whole ‘COIN’ thing,” Bob explained, referring to America’s strategy of counter-insurgency. “We were given a fictitious picture, an artificially created picture of what we were doing in Afghanistan,” the dad said.
Bowe Bergdahl would detail his disillusionment with the Afghanistan campaign in an email to his parents three days before he went missing.
“I am sorry for everything here,” he wrote. “These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid.”
Bergdahl also complained about fellow soldiers. The battalion commander was a “conceited old fool,” he said, and the only “decent” sergeants, planning to leave the platoon “as soon as they can,” told the privates — Bergdahl then among them — “to do the same.”
“I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools,” he concluded. “I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”
Bob Bergdahl responded in an email: “OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!”
The Sunday after Obama made the trade, Bob Bergdahl gave special praise to Allah in Pharsi for his son’s release, for which he received a special hug from his fellow dhimmi, President Barack Hussein Obama.
Walid Shoebat is a Palestinian American Christian, who converted from Islam.
On his website, shoebat.com, he posted the following about the Patriarch of the Bergdahls…
The “basmallah” [Praise to Allah] is the Islamic expression for victory and only indicates that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s father is a Muslim.
Think that the man is acting as “Muslim” for a stealth operation to rescue his son who is already in good hands in Germany? And what is with the long beard and trimmed mustache?
No this is not a bum, biker, or a Santa Clause fan. When one gives the basmallah, trims his mustache and elongates his beard, it’s the first sign of a convert to Islam, just as that an ex-Muslim putting on a cross and saying, “In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,” is evidence enough of conversion to Christianity. But there is much more we obtained on this stealth jihadist.
But first, Obama’s smile says much. Obama has never declared the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and has no real testimony of converting to Christianity, as his pastor Jeremiah Wright stated:
I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam
EVIDENCE THAT BERGDAHL CONVERTED TO JIHADI ISLAM
We were first hit with news from Brietbart that the Taliban said that Robert Bowe Bergdahl’s son, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, converted to Islam, changed his name to Abdullah, and even trained the Taliban in bomb making techniques.
And like father like son, the young Bergdahl, also trims his mustache and extends his beard…
But is it the speech with the Basmallah, the beard and the trimmed mustache, the testimonies from his colleagues on his desertion, that confirm our suspicion that these men are Jihadi converts?
What no one in the media captured was Robert Bowe Bergdahl’s favorites on his Youtube account.
It reveals a dark mind, a collector of a litany of ‘terrorist favorites’, videos from training on how to become Muslim Jihadist to urging American troops to desert and even favorite speeches by confirmed terrorists like Shaykh Anwar al-Awlaki, condemning America as a terrorist state:
Bergdahl’s Youtube account’s favorites list has an anti-American Anwar al-Awlaki video. Notice Bergdahl’s name above the list, showing that it is indeed his account
On one of the videos Bergdahl subscribes to a Jihadi message titled, “Duaa (prayer).”
But prayer for what? His son’s release only? Hardly, its for the release of the terrorists in American captivity. The prayer begins in Arabic, as Shoebat.com translates:
O Allah, release our prisoners, the Muslim prisoners, and send them back to our families in peace!
One would think that Bergdahl does not understand what is said in Arabic? Think again, he comments himself stating:
“Al-Hamdu Lillah, Ameen, Ameen May the duas of the ummah be heard and may Allah free my son from captivity! بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ”
Praise be to Allah, Amen, Amen, my prayers for all the Muslim Nation (ummah) be heard and may Allah free my son from captivity. In the name of Allah most merciful most beneficient, it is thee whom I worship, it is thee whom I seek refuge.
He types perfect Arabic and announces he is Muslim, “thee [Allah] I worship …”
Another favorite is a lecture from Mufti Ismail Menk, who identifies himself as a Muslim scholar titled “Qualities Of A True Worshipper”. Menk was also a favorite of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev.
Another video favorited by Bergdahl, is a Muslim jihadist terrorist video uploaded by the Afghan Islamic Emirate (the same group the 5 terrorists, who Obama helped released and who Bergdahl praisingly communicated with, were a part of) on August 5, 2013, in which a verse from the Koran is chanted:
Fight them, so that there will be no mischief, and the religion will be all Allah’s (Surah 39)
For more than 200 years, the United States had a policy of not trading prisoners for American hostages. That policy was irreparably damaged, if not destroyed, and, by doing so, President Barack Hussein Obama placed a target on the back of every single American – civilian and military alike.
Six brave American Soldiers lost their lives as a result of Bergdahl’s desertion, due to the search for him and due to mission plans having to be changed . Their names were
- Staff Sgt. Clayton
- Bowen Morris Walker
- Staff Sgt. Kurt Curtiss
- 2nd Lt. Darryn Andrews
- Matthew Michael Martinek
- Staff Sgt. Michael Murphrey
These men served with distinction. Bergdahl did not.
I remember when news first came from the Obama Administration that they had negotiated the release of an American Soldier from the Taliban. They hailed Bergdahl as a National Hero.
Then, the truth came out, about Obama’s idiotic trade, which in the course of all of its Muslim and anti-American layers being revealed, turned out to be intentionally treasonous.
While in office, Obama always thought of our Armed Forces as a “Political Tool” to be used to achieve his Political Goals.
So, what goal was Obama trying to accomplish by trading those 5 murderous Afghani Muslim Terrorist Leaders for an Army Deserter…who happened to also be a Muslim-Sympathizer?
Was his goal to take our attention away from the Veterans Administration Scandal which was plaguing his Administration at the time?
Was this simply a step in his quest to close down Gitmo?
Or, with Bob Bergdahl being a Muslim Convert and Bowe being a Muslim Sympathizer, was this an Islamic thing?
I don’t know, but Obama’s deplorable actions placed American Travelers, civilian and military, in worldwide danger.
And, as far as the words of President Trump are concerned, he was speaking bluntly and honestly about the matter as the majority of average Americans, such as you and I do.
Bowe Bergdahl is a traitor and he should be punished to the fullest extent of Military Law.
For every action there is a consequence.
It is way past time for Bowe Bergdahl to pay for his.
Until He Comes,
