She needs to held accountable and have her immunity waived.

is she the wife of a diplomat? Is she untitled to immunity? If not, who granted her immunity?
From the article:

“Sacoolas' immunity is a complex issue — one that reached the highest levels of government in the U.K. and led Harry's parents all the way to the White House, where they say they were "shocked" when President Trump asked them to meet with Sacoolas who was in an adjoining room.”

It looks like Trump has bent over backwards for the grieving parents, by even meeting with them. However they want a pound of flesh. And Trump has stepped up and protected a mom who made a simple mistake.

As usual he is being beat up for it.

The quote from the family member is ludicrous. Her kids want her with them, not in a jail in England.

Good for Trump. We know what spineless Obama would have done.

Made a simple mistake? She killed some one. She needs to be held accountable. If Obama would have turned her over then this is the one time I would have agreed with him!

We had a special name for Army Officers who placed Politics and self aggrandizement before Country. Politics usually also ensures one is a liar. Seen these types often posturing for the cameras when I deployed. I have nothing but disdain for them.

When will the leadership of our military start enforcing Article 88 of the UCMJ?

What would be happening to these officers if the CINC were still Obama?

Back in my time in the military if you didn’t like or approve of the President’s policies and orders you had two choices- do your duty and keep your mouth shut, or get out.

What Grayling says.

I was in the Navy under Carter and when Zumwalt as CNO. Carter was an absolute failure as CinC even though he served as a Naval Officer and was submarine qualified. The Navy suffered under Zumwalt's misguided slackening of discipline and standards to conform the Navy to the hippie lifestyle. Carter's misguided military handling wrecked moral and was made forever evident with his handling of the Iran hostage crisis and the disastrous rescue attempt.

The Colonel is a Ukraine expert and heard the call in the Ukraine and apparently testified that the transcript provided by the White House is not accurate.

We are all being told that because of his purple heart and his service to the country we must not criticize him.

https://news.yahoo.com/us-helicopter-ra ... 29505.html

Helicopter raid reported in Syria, maybe from intelligence gathered in other raid. Trump apparently wrong about the replacement commander being killed per "experts" says the yahoo article.

"Donald Trump, the US president, tweeted on Tuesday that Baghdadi's "number one replacement" had been killed.

He did not name who that was, but it is thought he was referring to Muhajir.

Analysts do not agree that Muhajir would have been Baghdadi's natural successor"

Just have to find something wrong.

Intelligence chiefs acknowledge the existence of the Deep State!

Former Acting CIA Director on Trump Impeachment: ‘Thank God for the Deep State’
https://townhall.com/tipsheet/juliorosa ... e-n2555719
Former Acting CIA Director John McLaughlin praised the "deep state" for their role in starting the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, which started from an intelligence community member filing a whistleblower complaint.

McLaughlin and former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan appeared on a panel hosted at George Mason University on Wednesday.

“But there is something unique you have to agree, that now the impeachment inquiry is underway, sparked by complaint from someone within the intelligence community. It feeds the President’s concern and often used term about a ‘deep state’ being there to take him out," CBS News' Margaret Brennan said.

"Well you know, thank God for the deep state," McLaughlin quipped.

Trump declares his residency in Florida.

No more state tax for him.


Ivanka Trump posts this from Thomas Jefferson to his daughter.

““…surrounded by enemies and spies catching and perverting every word that falls from my lips or flows from my pen, and inventing where facts fail them.” -Thomas Jefferson’s reflections on Washington, D.C. in a letter to his daughter Martha.

Some things never change, dad!””

House passes one sided rules on impeachment inquiry.
