No Jail Time for Bowe Bergdahl – A Dishonorable Discharge, Reduction in Rank and a Fine….

Military Judge, Col. Jeffery Nance, handed Bowe Bergdahl a stunningly lenient sentence today reducing Bergdahl’s rank to Private, reducing his pay by $1,000 per month for ten months, handing him a dishonorable discharge and then allowing him to walk away without jail time.  According to NBC News Judge Nance did not make any further comments.

Last week Bergdahl plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and faced up to life in prison.  The judge let him walk with a reduction in rank and a fine.

Private Bergdahl, knowingly and with intent, walked away from his base in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009, and was captured by the Taliban within hours.  Six U.S. military servicemen were killed trying to find him.  In 2014 President Obama traded five Gitmo Taliban terrorist detainees for him in a very controversial prisoner exchange.

    This judge must be gonadless if male, pro-islamic extremist or taliban, and must hope for more incidents to occur…This is unbelievable and disgraceful!! I thought 10 years was too lenient! as he would normally get the death penalty in the past… What a farce of what kind of people are now in power in our military , and how justice is gone in America!!, along with turncoat Mueller sanitizing our FBI documents of anything perceived to be anti-islamic… How about, Mueller, you go back and sanitize all our Christian- hating words in so many areas of our schools, intel, etc..????

    Meanwhile,

    “At least four U.S. Army soldiers worked with Mexico’s Gulf Cartel to supply them with more than 40 assault rifles. – This week, U.S. Army Sergeant Julian Presas stood before Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia in San Antonio, and received a sentence of 16 years and 8 months in federal prison. The other 3 POSs pleaded guilty to straw purchasing charges and received a probation term of two years.”

        During my time in the Army, I’ve have seen harsher punishment for a Soldier sleeping on guard duty, literally five years at Leavenworth.
        One guy was separated with a Bad Conduct Discharge for hiding pancakes in his foot locker….he was gone in less than a week.
        Another stole my car…ten years….loss of rank and privileges.
        This man has shown no remorse during his trial, and denounced the USA in favor of the Taliban. Punishment for the crime by being incarcerated is suppose to be a debt to society, and a deterrent to others. This is neither and is a terrible judgment to an all volunteer military, and a slap in the face to the USA. Considering the harm and loss of life that was caused by his cowardice, not to mention the barter trade of the unholy prisoners that Obama swapped for this embarrassment to the US Military and the USA in general.

I suspect this judge must be one of Barack Hussein’s secret admirers. Looks like it is the highest time for a cleanse of the military’s high ranks. If BHO could find a bogus reason to do it to so many, I’m sure DJT can find a few valid ones, starting with negligence and dereliction of duty.

        Sorry, they’re and have been here. Shiploads were quietly brought in in the 80s, for a while many Palestinian groups were funding their terrorist activities heavily through US immigrants’ contributions to their coffers.
        Come Desert Storm and as we were welcoming home the troops thousands of Iraqis were being imported, the numbers imported under Clinton didn’t slow.
        And as for vetting? Wellllll….many of them had no paperwork so various things were created for them. When, as we were working post-911 issues in late 2001, we started noticing a rash of them with birth dates of ‘1 January 19XX’ a Fed civilian working with us said that they had no paperwork supporting their birth dates so they just took whatever year they said they were born in and made the rest ‘1 January’. Howzat?
        Howbout Jaamat ul-Fuqra, with branches in a number of states? A freely imported Moslem group listed as a terrorist organization in a number of Moslem countries. Feds used to watch it due to its rumored terr connections and a few instances here that led to convictions. They seemed to slowly slide off the radar after about 2008 and became baptized, born again and untouchable after they just up and changed their name to Muslims of America. Even crawled into bed with CAIR who’s taken up their cause in defending their good name.
        Won’t even go into when we were shown a map with what were said to be al-Qaeda covens in the US in November or December of 2001. What? You knew they were here?
        They ain’t coming, they’re here. The Jewish/Christian/anyone other than Islam haters are just filtering more in amidst the real immigrants and they’ve convinced their useful idiot apologists here to let ’em all in with minimal, if any vetting. If this were 1942 would we be freely letting in any European Nazis because all Nazis ain’t bad Nazis? WTF are we doing now?

    O had time to put destructobots in positions of power in the military and judiciary (I think that is why there is no overt movement against HilLIARy at this time). There needs to be a movement to remove them. It’s long past time for Fed judges to be held accountable for misconduct. Congress likes to form committees so much, let them form a judicial review committee and start evaluating Fed judges conduct and judicial competence with recommendation of impeachment.

    As for this Obot military idiot, he needs to be assigned to an Aleutian weather station for the duration up to his retirement. It’s actually very doable and that needs to start happening to all the Obots that achieved positions of power in the military. You can’t necessarily throw them out but you sure can make sure they have el primo duty stations. JMHO

      Y’all remember Ahmed Ressam? (crickets chirping). Ressam entered Canada on a phony passport in 1994…he was caught. Thinking quickly he came up with some BS story, was granted refugee status and was put on the Canadian dole. His application was denied in 1995 and an arrest warrant was issued in 1998 but couldn’t be served as he was in an Afghan terrorist training camp. He comes back to Canada, collects welfare and steals to support himself. is arrested multiple times but never jailed even though there’s a nationwide warrant out on him.
      Fast forward to 1999 and Ahmed enters the US through Port Angeles (US didn’t catch the warrants either) where a alert Customs inspector caught him with a car full of explosives on his way to bomb Los Angeles International Airport. Oops.
      won’;t even get into the ones caught sneaking into the US from Canada in New York state with explosives, again before 911, that’s old history and its all irrelevant to where we are now. Y’all are going to have your own problems soon.
