Lt Col Shaffer: WH Trying To Get Bowe Bergdahl To “Cop To A Deal” To Make Problem Go Away Quietly (Video)

The White House continues to stall the results of the Pentagon’s investigation in to Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

And now retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, who has been alleging for months that the investigation has concluded, and Bergdahl was found to have deserted, says sources in the Pentagon claimed Thursday that the White House is trying to get  Bergdahl to strike a some kind of deal to avoid an embarrassing trial for the Regime.

Via Fox News:

“They want this to go away as quietly as possible,” Shaffer, a former military intelligence officer, said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”

President Obama faced criticism for trading Bergdahl, accused by some of deserting, for five Taliban leaders being held at Guantanamo Bay. Shaffer claims there were other options on the table that might have had “better success … without giving up five adversaries.” He added that “these guys are going to be going back to a rock star welcome and return to combat” when conditions on their release are lifted in the coming months.

President Snit-Fit shouldn’t have to stall this out for much longer. Almost a year has passed since the Regime’s grossly inappropriate celebration of that awful trade. The American people’s attention spans are short. Obama counts on that.

Bibi Netanyahu: Peace Agreement Must Be Negotiated, Not Imposed (Video)

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly snagged a big interview Thursday night with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Just two days after his closely watched re-election, her first question to Bibi challenged him for appearing to flip flop on his position on a “two state solution.”

“In 2009, you said you supported a peace deal that supported a Palestinian state, the say before Tuesday’s election you completely reversed that. Why?”

“I didn’t” Netanyahu answered. “I didn’t retract anything I said in my speech six years ago calling for a solution in which a demilitarized Palestinian State recognizes the Jewish State. I said that the conditions for today are not conceivable for a simple reason — the leader of the Palestinians rejects consistently the acceptance of a Jewish State – has made a pact with the Palestinian terrorist organization, Hamas – that calls for our destruction and the conditions in the Middle East have changed to the point that any territory you withdraw from is immediately taken up by Iranian backed terrorists or by ISIS – it’s only a dozen miles away from us, ISIS – they’re thousands of miles away from you.

Netanyahu said that instead of a two state solution, we could end up with a no state solution and that would threaten the very survival of the state of Israel.

Kelly brought up reports that  Barack Obama, seeing no path to a peace agreement, is now is threatening to abandon Israel to the wolves at the United Nations.

“I hope that’s not true, and I think that President Obama has said time and time again, as I’ve said, that the only path to a peace agreement is an agreement, a negotiated agreement. You can’t impose it,” he said.

Our Weasel Of The Week!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all truly slime-worthy and disgusting,but in the end the unanimous winner was….the envelope please..
The Regime’s Own Komedy King, ‘Director Of National Intelligence’ James Clapper!!

 JoshuaPundit : Yes, good ol’ Jim Clapper, Obama’s ‘intelligence’ specialist, who referred to the Muslim Brotherhood as ‘a secular organization’ without even cracking a smile when testifying before congress. Yes, the laugh was in in his delivery – pompous, all knowing and put upon that he should even be questioned on such things by such mere peasants.

Since then, Jim Clapper has been good for a lot of laughs as he reliably shills for Obama’s failed foreign policy.

His latest caper? In his 2015 Worldwide Threat Assessment for congress he totally delisted Iran as a state supporter of terrorism and Iran’s proxy Hezbollah as a terrorist group. And why not? They’re our allies now, President Obama says so, and so does James Clapper. so it must be true.

Yeah, they seem like a friendly bunch, don’t they? What’s wrong with them having nukes?

Hey, Jim Clapper, just like his boss in the Oval Office doesn’t see anything wrong with it? Why should we? And Hezbollah? Sure, before 9/11 they held the record for the terrorist group murdering the most Americans,but that was then and this is now.

Y’know, Clapper and a number of his buddies throughout out the Obama Administration like Robert Malley, Dalia Megahead, Huma Abedin, Mohamed Elibiary, Rashad Hussain, Salam al-Marayati and a number of others remind me a lot of how commies,their sympathizers and Soviet spies like Owen Lattimore, Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White, Harry Hopkins, Nathan Gregory Silvermaster and lots of others infiltrated the Roosevelt and Truman administrations. Most of them weren’t high profile..they functioned behind the scenes as trusted behind the scenes advisers, apparatchniks and bureaucrats at various choke points where they could see and hear a lot and/or had the ear of people whom directly affected policy. They were the ultimate weasels of the Cold War, and between them they gave Stalin the atomic bomb, convinced Roosevelt to trust Stalin when he said he’d pull the Red Army out of Europe after the war, and duped Truman into allowing the Soviets to keep eastern Europe enslaved and bring the USSR into the UN.

I have a feeling that when the history of these times is written, some of the names I mentioned, perhaps even Mr. Clapper’s might just be mentioned as he ultimate weasels of their own time.So I think it’s only appropriate and fitting that Mr. Clapper receive this well earned Golden weasel…both for the weaselly deeds he’s already done and the one’s he’ll undoubtedly do in the future. Step up to the stage, James Clapper, and here’s your weasel!

Oh, the red stuff on the sides? Well, we had that done especially for you, kind of a symbolic tribute. Looks almost like blood, doesn’t it?

Well, there it is! 

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
