Jane Fonda said she hoped for an open dialogue with veterans after about 50 former military members and supporters protested the actress’s appearance Friday evening at the Weinberg Center for the Arts.

“Whenever possible I try to sit down with vets and talk with them, because I understand and it makes me sad,” Fonda told a relatively full theater, responding to a submitted question. “It hurts me and it will to my grave that I made a huge, huge mistake that made a lot of people think I was against the soldiers.”

In 1972 Fonda visited Hanoi, North Vietnam, where she criticized attacks on the dike system along the Red River. A U.S. investigation later revealed the publicity of these bombings as propaganda. Fonda’s statements and a photograph of her sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft battery outraged many Americans and veterans, leading many to call her “Hanoi Jane” and a “traitor.”

Bob Hartman, an Army veteran who served in Vietnam in 1967 and 1968, said he blamed Fonda for breaking off negotiations among the countries and held her responsible for thousands of American lives.

“She encouraged North Vietnam to pull away from the negotiations table,” he said, holding a sign outside the Court Street parking garage to protest her presence. “She got Americans killed … and she went to Vietnam to advance her husband’s career.”

Former Muslim GITMO Guard Turns Traitor?

mustafa terry holdbrooks

 “Seeing religion practiced the way that the detainees (al-Qaeda terrorists) practice Islam is a really life changing experience in itself” (Terry Holdbrooks)

 

Family Security Matters

Is Terry Holdbrooks aka Mustafa Abdullah, a propaganda agent for the sworn enemies of the United States of America?  That is a question for you and our government to answer.

In August 2002, Terry C. Holdbrooks Jr. (19), aka Mustafa Abdullah, enlisted in the US Army.  In June of 2003, Mr. Holdbrooks first deployment was to Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp (GITMO) as a prison guard.  Mr. Holdbrooks served as a military police officer with the rank of Specialist in the US Army between 2002 and 2005, attached to the 252nd Military Police, and later assigned to the 463rd MP Company.

Is Terry Holdbrooks A Traitor?

Six months into his GITMO assignment,  Mr. Holdbrooks embraced his Sunni Muslim al-Qaeda terrorist detainees ideology by joining their ranks as a new revert/convert to Islamic doctrine and theology.  Islamic doctrine teaches that all people are born Muslim and revert back to their original state when they accept Islam, thus they are referred to as Muslim reverts.

Jane Fonda to build shrine of herself

Even Jane Fonda needs a reminder of her fabulousness. At 77, the actress is building a “shrine” to herself that she hopes will boost her recently faltering confidence. “I’ve found myself backsliding a bit of late in terms of where my thoughts have tended to reside (not always with the generosity of vision I wish for) and my confidence has been iffy for the past four months,” the stunning star wrote in a blog post Sunday, her 77th birthday. “So, while meditating today an idea came to me: I’m going to create a shrine to myself – or, at least, the self I wish to be, the self who began to manifest when I was a young girl before the s–t hit the fan,” she continued. The “shrine” will be a small place filled with items that remind Fonda of “the qualities that represent my best self.” So far, she plans to include a school report from the fourth grade. She’ll spend the new year collecting objects and symbols that “remind me that I’m brave.” “I’ve been forgetting that,” she revealed.

A problem Obama desperately wants you to forget about

American Thinker

President Obama is betting on the short attention span of the American public and a compliant media in hopes that the problem of Bowe Bergdahl will just fade away.  Obama infamously traded five senior leaders of the Taliban in exchange for Bergdahl’s sorry butt released from captivity.

Justice delayed may be justice denied, but Obama is no doubt keen to have delay after delay prevent a reckoning for the deserter Bergdahl. Paul Sperry, writing in the New York Post lets us know the tactics being deployed to keep a trial for Bergdahl from happening, or at least delay it until after November.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. (snip)

In a sign Bergdahl may indeed get off with a slap on the wrist, the Army has delayed its AR 15-6 investigation into his disappearance — a development that Bergdahl’s attorneys see as helpful to their client.

The Army investigator, Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, was supposed to submit his findings to brass last month but has asked for an extension. The probe was limited to a 60-day window, which ended Aug. 15. There’s no longer a deadline attached, which means the investigation could drag out past the November election.

Dahl last month interviewed Bergdahl at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, in what his lawyer described as an “entirely nonconfrontational” meeting.

Critics doubt Dahl has the skills to conduct a proper interrogation. “No general does this. They have no training,” said the Army official, who requested anonymity upon describing Dahl as a “yes-man.”

This is outrageous. The message being sent to our active duty military is that you can be a traitor and escape punishment if the president finds it politically convenient. This could sow seeds of distrust among people who daily face life threatening situations. If the president wants to destroy our military morale and effectiveness, this is a damn good way to do it.

Treason: Obama’s ‘Gitmo Five’

Barbwire

You were already thinking it.

Treason.

For Richard Nixon, it was a cover-up surrounding illegal wiretapping. For Bill Clinton, it was lying under oath about sex with an intern. Obama thinks he’s untouchable. He believes he’s above the law.

Evidently, he’s right.

What will it take for our spineless U.S. Congress to impeach this tyrant? This is way beyond partisan politics. This is about justice. This is about the safety of the American people. Barack Hussein Obama is America’s biggest threat to national security. He is “an enemy within.”

It’s official. America is no longer a constitutional republic. Under this “progressive” nut, we’ve become a banana republic.

 

The president’s latest act of lawlessness is beyond the pale. There is no question whatsoever that by freeing, to kill again, five known, mass-murdering, high-level Muslim terrorists in exchange for accused Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl, Obama broke the law.

Not only did he unilaterally and arbitrarily trash the U.S. government’s long-standing policy never to negotiate with terrorists, he intentionally and overtly violated a 2013 national defense bill that unambiguously requires he give Congress 30-days notice before releasing any Guantanamo Bay prisoners, much less five of its most deadly.

 

As ABC News reports: “‘Trading five senior Taliban leaders from detention in Guantanamo Bay for Berghdal’s release may have consequences for the rest of our forces and all Americans. Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans. That incentive will put our forces in Afghanistan and around the world at even greater risk,’ said House Armed Services Chairman Howard P. ‘Buck’ McKeon, R-Calif., and Senate Armed Services Ranking Member James Inhofe, R-Okla., in a joint statement.”

Bingo.

Let the American kidnapping spree begin. The Muslim world is celebrating this as a huge victory in its anti-American jihad.

The Muslim world is right.

As McKeon and Inhofe predicted, the Taliban has already announced that Obama’s unilateral surrender has “encouraged” them to kidnap more Americans to trade for terrorists.

Is anyone surprised?

Is Obama?

No way.

Even many in the liberal media are flummoxed by this one, with, for example, MSNBC producer Steven Bennen reluctantly admitting that Obama was likely “acting outside the confines of the law.”

Let me help you with that, Steve. By “acting outside the confines of the law,” you mean to say that Obama “broke the law.”

We have a word for people who break the law: They’re called criminals.

This one is so over-the-top that, in a rare moment of lucidity, even ultra-liberal Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., has temporarily emerged from her sycophantic shell to publicly condemn Obama, the de facto leader of the Democratic Party, saying that she was “very disappointed” he failed to comply with the law. This “White House is pretty unilateral about what they want to do when they want to do it,” she fumed.

Understatement of the decade.

Merriam-Webster defines “treason” as, “the crime of trying to overthrow your country’s government or of helping your country’s enemies during war.”

Whether Obama is intentionally trying to overthrow his own government is open for debate. But that he has “helped his country’s enemies during war” is a slam dunk.

The amazing thing? This arrogant clown admits to it: “Is there a possibility of some of them trying to return to activities that are detrimental to us?” Obama asked rhetorically of the five terrorists he just cut loose. “Absolutely,” he answered.

Possibility? It’s a guarantee. There is no doubt that Americans will die as a direct result of Obama’s demonstrably illegal actions here – no doubt whatsoever. With most of these monsters in their 40s, they’ve got decades to kill as many Americans as they can get their blood-soaked hands on.

According to ABC News, the U.S. Defense Department has classified at least three of the five as a “‘HIGH’ threat to U.S. security interests if released.” Moreover, at least two are even now “wanted by the United Nations for possible war crimes including the murder of thousands of Shiite Muslims.” Fox News reported that in one instance, the men lined up hundreds of Shiites and slit their throats in front of their wives and children.

All have ties to al-Qaida.

This defies logic. It defies reason. It defies morality. It defies law. It’s either criminally stupid or criminally sinister.

I believe the latter.

What Obama has done here is worse than if he had personally released five rabid pit bulldogs into a playground full of children. If a person owns a dog known to be violent and that dog attacks another, the dog owner is held legally liable.

When these dogs kill again, Obama is liable – legally and morally liable. He has just loosed five psychopathic serial-killers. No trial. No reasonable explanation. Just poof! Home they go with a suitcase full of souvenirs from Club Gitmo and a fresh new outlook on life.

And we get Bowe Bergdahl?

This stinks to high heaven.

Still, don’t be distracted. That the evidence overwhelmingly indicates Bergdahl is both a deserter and traitor is relatively insignificant. That he appears personally responsible for the deaths of at least six honorable soldiers deployed to search for him after his desertion is largely irrelevant to the scandal. It’s both a tragedy and a grave injustice, but it’s immaterial.

It wouldn’t matter if Bergdahl were Mother Teresa. This scandal isn’t about Bowe Bergdahl. It’s about a sitting United States president intentionally, overtly and criminally violating the National Defense Act to release five of the world’s most dangerous Muslim terrorists – dubbed the jihadist “Dream Team” – thereby directly placing American lives in jeopardy.

Obama swore an oath to protect America “from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” not to protect all enemies, foreign and domestic, from America.

What will it take? When one or more of these “Gitmo Five” commit (or even take credit for) some future act of terrorism, will Congress do something then?

How many have to die? Do they have to be Americans or will foreign innocents do?

What will it take for our spineless U.S. Congress to overcome this deathly fear of being called “racist” and file articles of impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama?

If he’s allowed to get away with this, he’ll be allowed to get away with anything.

And don’t think he doesn’t know it.

Jane Fonda To Be Honored As Example Of Using Fame To Do Good In The World. JANE. FONDA.

Free Republic

This week I read that Jane Fonda is being honored by the USC School for Dramatic Arts.

“The Robert Redford Award for Engaged Artists honors an individual who has used his or her fame to significantly bolster public awareness of important social issues,” Madeline Puzo, dean of the USC School of Dramatic Arts, said in a statement Monday morning.

“It is our hope that this award will inspire students to be socially engaged in their lives and through their art.”

I happened across that information online. It made me think back on the many ways in which Fonda has been honored over the years, and the many blessings she has enjoyed thanks to this country, and those who fight for it.

Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

How can we yet, and to this day, still not apply that definition to Jane Fonda?

Tea Party Activist Blasts Mitch McConnell’s Claim They Won’t “Have a Single Nominee Anywhere in the Country”

Freedom Outpost

The campaigning and gearing toward the 2014 elections continued ahead with the latest “revelation” from Mitch McConnell, the Republican from Kentucky and Senate Minority leader.  According to a statement regarding the Tea Party, McConnell said, “I think we are going to crush them everywhere.  I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

Well Sen. McConnell, there are a few things that you should know although I suspect educating the stupid is pointless.  However, borrowing from George Eliot, I believe you think you are a cock who thinks the sun rises to hear you crow.  Trust me, the sun cares not about your crowing and neither does America.  You have proven countless times what a sniveling weasel of a man you truly are.  You stand for nothing and fall for everything.  You can’t pour water out of a boot even with the directions written on the heel nor could you find your way out of a paper bag when facing the open end.  You, Mr. McConnell, are more like a piece of paper drifting on the wind currents – the only direction you know is the one in which you are pushed by whichever wind is the strongest.
