Deserter...!

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

Deserter..!  In the military sense, the very word conjures up the worst emotions and thoughts for the perpetrator.  With few exceptions in history, deserters and traitors have always been, rightfully I might add, dealt with harshly.  Because it’s not simply walking away from one’s post for any self-serving purpose; the soldier on your right or left was depending upon you as you had been depending upon them.  By the act of willful desertion, others are put at exponentially increased risk of danger, often including death.  So yeah, “enlightened” excuses aside, desertion is not harmless, nor is it isolated to the offender, and it deserves harsh consequences.

The reasons for desertion vary.  Fear, mental illness, and lots of other excused appeasements.  Some have and do say that it happens so often, it isn’t fair to make an example out of one deserter every so often. 

With that said, let’s have a look at some history.  The last time a US Soldier was executed for desertion was during WWII when Private Eddie Slovik was shot by a firing squad on January 31, 1945 after being found guilty of willful desertion; to this day, there is controversy surrounding that incident.  Much of that controversy surrounds what led up to his charges and execution.  Without needlessly drawing out all of the details in living color, Eddie Slovik was essentially a putz who was not exactly a candidate for citizen of the year and did a lot of stupid stuff in his mostly miss-spent youth.  However, the contrast between him and S/Sgt Bowe Bergdahl could not be more stark. 

Slovik landed in Europe in August of 1944 and as happens frequently, he got separated from his unit; and in his case wound up following a Canadian Unit around until they were able to reunite him with his own unit in October.  To make a long story short, he was a coward and let it be known in no uncertain terms that if he was sent to the front lines, he would desert; and he did just that.  When he returned he submitted a letter to an officer admitting what he’d done and that he would do it again.  When he subsequently refused to retract his damning letter and admission, he was sent to the stockade, tried, convicted and summarily executed.  While I’m not suggesting he should have been excused for his actions, there is nothing to suggest that he hated his country and he did not run to and embrace the enemy; nor did any of his comrades die or get wounded searching for him.

On the other hand, we have Bowe Bergdahl.  This is a man, another coward, who willfully abandoned his post and fled to the enemy, and in doing so, cost six other soldiers their lives, and left at least three seriously wounded while searching for him.  The families of those soldiers never got to say goodbye, celebrate their return home, laugh, cry, watch their babies grow, or any of the other things that Mr. Bergdahl and his family will get to do.  Instead, the lives of the family members of those that fell or got permanently disabled are shattered for all time. 

As if that isn’t bad enough; for five years, the enemy loving obama administration and the military complex knew he had deserted his post, yet instead of informing the nation of what he had done, they perpetrated the illusion that he may have been captured and mistreated because doing so created a public uproar that we were leaving a man behind if we didn’t do everything possible to secure his release.

Then, without the approval of Congress, he was traded in a “prisoner swap” for five of the very worst of those incarcerated in Gitmo and reportedly given a lump sum payout.  Think about that; a known deserter was traded for five notorious men, and then reportedly given a lump sum of $300K to cover back pay and other items..?!

So now this tick, this traitor, this pimple on the butt of our nation and his family who allowed themselves and him to be used by the obama administration as some sort of poster child for compassion or whatever that charade was supposed to be, was given a dishonorable discharge today with no prison sentence.  This egregiously unjust sentence is NOT the message that anyone expected from this new administration and serves to highlight the need to revisit the military code of justice while we continue to drain a very murky swamp.

As far as Mr. Bergdahl is concerned; just go away and fade into history; hide yourself in shame, find some uninformed liberal woman, get married, and have some what will certainly become milquetoast kids.  And if you have any sort of a conscience or a soul, think about the families you destroyed every time you look at your own, think about the people that will be murdered and other families ruined by the monsters they swapped for your sniveling, cowardly, spineless ass, and consider the plight of Eddie Slovik who was made an example of for doing far less than you. 

In a lot of ways, you owe Mr. Slovik a debt of gratitude as much as our nation now owes him an apology for letting the likes of you off the hook.

Taquiyya Fest In Delray Beach…

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

What a nauseating pant load of misinformation was spewed on Thursday evening by one Mark Schneider at the South County Civic Center in Delray Beach.  This dhimmi was supposed to be joined by one Bassen Alhalabi, however when Mr. Alhalabi showed up, he saw that members of The United West were on hand to film the event and in true sniveling rat form, he decided to leave rather than have his lies recorded.  Look him up..!

Therefore, the almost full hour was spent with Mr. Schneider mostly playing down and glossing over the Islamic extremism we are fed a daily dose of.  You need to know that this man, who is very dangerous by virtue of being allowed platforms in various academia influencing already misinformed younger people because of his extreme left, liberal credentials and organizations that he is associated with like the ACLU, has access to your children.  Those associations merely added to my utter contempt for the man by the end of the evening.  Several times in the early part of the evening we were told that the event was “non-political,” but that did not stop this useful idiot of a dhimmi from making a couple of innuendos about Judge Roy Moore and favorably comparing Rep. Keith Ellison to the new Ayatollah; yeah I know, whaaat…?!  It was at that point that this writer may have loudly stated that “I thought this was non-political..?”

As his talk continued, he was attempting to talk down to those in attendance as if we were all uninformed lemmings like some of the followers of the hosting group.  I have many Jewish friends and I love them, however it hasn’t escaped me that every time I attend such a gathering, many of those who buy into and defend the absolute lies of people like this man are Jews, which leaves me stunned as they are the number one target of these very people; to which I can’t help but imagine that this mindset had to play a large part in what allowed a madman like Hitler to annihilate so many. 

In the harsh light of that last statement, I noticed a middle aged Jewish looking woman near the front of the room who was wearing a bright pink tee shirt with something written across the front; when I was finally able to read what it said, I was again stunned.  It said, “Muslim Lives Matter;” and while all lives do in fact matter, I have a newsflash for this brainless twit and those like her; if she ever tried walking down the street in any Muslim controlled country or any of a number of places in America for that matter dressed as she was, she would be brutally raped and beaten to death, or maybe strangled with the tee shirt just because of it.  Really, get a clue and look at how women are treated in that culture.  Is it any wonder that so many risk their lives trying to find non-Muslim men to marry..?!

Towards the end of the power point presentation, the crowd started grumbling a bit and louder comments were heard.

When the floor was opened to questions, a couple of things occurred.  First and foremost, a note to those attending any event where questions are entertained, please learn the difference between a long winded statement/speech and an on point question. 

In all, there were only about five actual questions asked, however it didn’t really matter as the dhimmi speaker never answered any of them; he simply deflected and went off on an unrelated tangent.  At one point a great question was asked by a great patriot and again the answer had nothing to do with the question.  When he asked for the next question, this writer may have shouted for him to answer the question by said patriot; to which he said he did and I may have retorted “like hell you did, you deflected it.”

At the end of the day, the host group; the United Religions Initiative via the Interfaith Café has some lofty sounding “chrislam” type goals such as “We respect the uniqueness of each tradition, and differences of practice or belief.  We value voices that respect others, and believe that sharing our values and wisdom can lead us to act for the good of all.  We believe that our religious, spiritual lives, rather than dividing us, guide us to build community and respect for one another.” 

And that’s all well and good, however it simply doesn’t work with people who are bald faced lying to you and setting you up to either convert, enslave, or kill you and your children.

Wake the hell up…!

The Vote: It Is What It Is....

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

As my regular readers know, I had something to say last week about some recent Congressional voting results, and I might add, I did not pull any punches and was in a word, harsh.  Most of my readers agreed with my thoughts and as always, there were some who didn’t like them.  Some of those who didn’t like what I said took to telling me that I was "wrong" and should issue some sort of a “correction;” and if I was wrong, I would do just that.

However, on Saturday afternoon, I attended a very private meeting with Congressman Brian Mast and four other patriots at a private residence in Palm Beach County, and I decided to bring my readers up to date.

Among other things, we discussed his “NO” vote on the bill that was to stop paying for “reassignment surgery” of transgendered individuals in the military.  On July 13, 2017, he and the House were indeed busy with a very large number of items being voted on very quickly, and with next to no time in between and notes shuffled, he accidentally voted “No” when he meant to vote “Aye” on that very huge piece of legislation.  Once he recognized his mistake, he did have it noted on the official record that it was a mistake because they aren’t geared up to actually change them when they are voting machine gun style like that; however, there was and is no correction as his name remains in the “No” column where it will sadly remain and stand as one of the twenty-four “No” votes cast by Republicans.  

That it was a mistake and noted as such is irrelevant because the fact is, it was cast as a “No” and given the gravity of that bill, this vote will likely come back and haunt him for a long time.  As far as those other Republicans who intended to side with the Democrats and vote “No;” well, I’ll just leave them to their constituencies.

Since the group didn’t bring it up, I asked the Congressman for clarification concerning the pathway to citizenship for military service.  My original article referred to it as a vote and it was in fact a proposal; however, while I still adamantly disagree, Congressman Mast does indeed support the proposal and will certainly vote for it when it does come up for a vote.

The last issue I mentioned originally was the accumulation of fines.  I do have to say that while I don’t agree with this being necessary, I understand what is being attempted by it.  Essentially, just being here illegally is not sufficient reason to deport anyone these days; it should be, but it isn’t. Therefore, criminal cases need to be built upon to raise them to the level of a felony, because only then will an illegal be deported; and fines levied for over staying visas and the like become felonies after reaching a certain dollar threshold.

So there you have it.  Some still won’t like it, but there is no real difference from my first discussion, except that I removed the sting.  

And for the record, this is not and never would be about personalities or anything of the sort; I have always and do believe that Brian Mast is a very good man, however the Congressman and I differ in opinions on more issues than I might have imagined

Make No Mistake, Know What "No" Means

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

Boy is my underwear in a bunch today.  We have a lot of problems in our nation; way more than anyone could list in an Op/Ed.  Today’s issue is going to cause my inbox to fill up with lots of different commentary that will range from agreeing with me to shunning me for casting their guy in a bad light.  So be it.  As always, I call them like I see them; if that earns me an enemy or two, c’est la vie.

I’ll start off with a question for everyone.  How did we arrive at a place where the Congress actually had to vote on whether or not We the People should pay for transgendered military personnel to undergo “gender reassignment” surgery..?!  It seems to me that not that long ago when one started a career in the military; he or she simply joined and did what he or she was told to do, or suffered the consequences.  Uniforms and hair styles were not subject to debate or personal preference; men had their hair shaved off with a number one hair clipper and women wore a short, neat, and easy to manage style.  They ate in one place and no one asked them if they liked the accommodations.  It was the military; they joined knowing what to expect and they sucked it up, or on occasion they got tossed out.  

No more apparently; now anything goes and the security of America be damned.  If one chooses to wear a head scarf or facial hair for “religious” reasons, or anything else that used to be considered out of uniform, it’s okay, because we certainly don’t want anyone’s precious feelings or self-esteem hurt.  No sir, today everything is on the table and if one is so inclined to live a transgendered lifestyle, he or she is not required to seek counseling; instead, everyone else has to take some sort of sensitivity training.  Well you know what, I’m about done with society having to put up with and coddle such behavior that up until about forty years or so ago was, and I might add rightly, classified as a psychological disorder.  I’m even more enraged that some of the geniuses that have managed to get themselves elected to public office think it’s just fine and dandy for you and me to pay for their fantasies.

Look, when I’m not sitting at my keyboard writing the truth about what’s going on and what most sane people think but are afraid to say, (or as liberals call it, “hate speech”) I’m just like most people; I get up every day and do my best to eke out a living and keep a roof over my head and food on the table.  Every dollar I make and have to pay in taxes is soaked in sweat and blood; and while I recognize that taxes are necessary to keep critical services and infrastructure up and running, I am righteously incensed that the Congress would even consider bringing such a matter to the floor.  As if that wasn’t bad enough, the text was deliberately twisted and convoluted in such a manner so that like many Amendments that We the People get to vote on, it becomes hard to tell what the correct vote is. 

And that language manipulating is where much of my angst stems from today.  Was the wording of this bill a tad confusing..?  Perhaps..!  Should it really matter as far as the actual vote is concerned..?  No it should not..! 

While every one of them was disastrously wrong in doing so, one of the 24 Republican members of the House that voted the wrong way on this bill happens to be my Congressman, Brian Mast.  I know the Congressman and I like him and his family; I’ve interviewed him and been a guest in his home before he ever ran for office.  However, I cannot give him a pass on this vote and while showing angst at the others; what I have to say overshadows personalities.
 
Brian, you know me, and you know the group I associate with a great deal of the time; I don’t feel the need to mention their names, but they are all Patriots and people who worked their tails off to get you elected.  You may have noticed that at social and other gatherings, I very often tend stay off to one side of the room and just listen and observe.  While I don’t always say a lot, I do in fact listen intently to my peers and like the majority of them I am extremely put out at how you have handled this matter.

You voted “No” when you should have voted “Yes,” you then suddenly became aware of this inexcusable error and went on record stating that you made a mistake.  Mistake or not, your name is still listed in the “No” column and as far as I know, that won’t change; and even if it does, the damage of it is still done.

The President And The Swamp...

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

Let me start by saying that I have and do support President Trump.  I absolutely never expected to agree with everything he says or does; however I have questions about the swamp.

I won’t pretend to know everything that a new administration has to get done during the transition between Election Day and Inauguration Day.  It has to be a daunting task.  I also know that DC and the surrounding area is a really big swamp with far reaching tentacles and it takes time to drain something like that, but the White House is a very small pond in that swamp, and from where I sit that part of the swamp still has too many critters that enjoyed swimming with the previous administration and are now undermining the current administration.

One of the biggest offenses are the close associates of Huma Abedin, Valerie Jarrett, and Hillary such as Dina Habib Powell, (a Muslim) and known rat who is the current U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor.  Apparently her only qualifications for the post are her connections to the above mentioned as well as Ivanka Trump.  There are other former “obamabots” who are still allowed to hang on, and that’s where a lot of Americans are getting more than a little rattled.

Instead of talking about “draining the swamp,” how about starting with a little focus on draining the local pond of the White House..?!  During the transition, a list could and should have been drawn up and people like DHP should have been shown the door on January 20, 2017.  Even many of the low level staffers, maintenance personnel, and “domestic” staff should have been scrutinized and removed where need be.  They may not be “important,” but they see and hear things that are valuable to those trying to tear down a leader.

Moving on to the other various parts of the swamp; the Pentagon is a cesspool that has been infiltrated with many from the “lone wolf packs and grapevines” I wrote about recently.  How many Muslims still sit in positions of authority in areas of National Security..?!  Until a foolproof way is devised to differentiate between which are friend or foe, any serious strategist not bound by any p/c insanity would remove any Muslim from any such position or involvement in our military complex starting with the Pentagon, and then down through the ranks.

You have a good man in “Mad Dog,” let him do his job and remove those individuals he knows in his gut he cannot trust.

Every Cabinet/department head should be of impeccable character and be given free rein to remove those who remain loyal to the previous administration or any of its allies.

While I never expected the draining to happen overnight, I certainly believed it would have started by now, and it hasn’t, at least not in a visual, tangible way.

So there you go; President Trump, slogans like “drain the swamp” and “lock her up” cannot go down in history as just slogans.  They need to take place, and people like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Lois Lerner, and so many others need to be investigated like anyone else and be punished accordingly for their insidious crimes.  The blood of their victims from Extortion 17, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and Seth Rich, to name a few, scream for justice.  I might add; Eric Holder is now mulling a run for 2020; good grief, I would hope he is behind bars by then.

The time for talking about it is over.  Drain the swamp and fill the jails; let’s get this done..!
