Bradley/Chelsea seeks to be a senator

AMERICA IS ON a downward trajectory. It began with Flower Power in the 1960s, worsened when the Soviet Union collapsed, which removed all need for national worry, and today the spoiled country drifts with no moral compass.

Many Americans still possess compasses, but the nation as a whole is adrift.

Now we have Bradley Manning, who calls himself Chelsea Elizabeth these days, running for public office. Manning has been convicted of espionage, which often results in a firing squad, and he is a severely troubled individual, something that’s clear by the tone of this grim campaign spot.

And that’s all I’m gonna say about it. Draw your own conclusions.

All my fault

I LEFT THE United States in pretty good condition when I moved over the Rio Bravo in January 2000. Bill Clinton was president, and the stock market was going gangbusters.

Alas, my absence was noted, and the nation went straight to Hell. The stock market started a two-year plunge that year. Then other horrible things began to happen.

Mohammedans attacked New York City. U.S. military expeditions into the Middle East were mucked up.

The economy collapsed in 2008. Would this have happened had I stayed home in Houston? There’s no way to know.

And things grew even worse.

Voters put a left-wing, mulatto community organizer with little useful experience into the White House and then, astonishingly, re-elected him four years later. Kool-Aid moment.

The White House power vacuum emboldened murderous Mohammedans far and wide. Leftists overran American universities, kicking out contrary opinions.

And here we are today.

Manning

The White House’s community organizer freed the traitor Bradley Manning* from prison in January, and Brad will soon do an interview with ABC “News.” Expect sympathy and softballs.

Meanwhile, in New York City, the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade is honoring a Puerto Rican terrorist who took part in fatal, bombing campaigns in the 1970s.

The New York Times prefers to call him “a militant.”

That’s nicer than calling him a murderer.

Furthermore, the City University of New York — a public, tax-funded institution — has invited Mohammedan terrorist supporter, Sharia Law-loving Linda Sarsour to be keynote speaker at a graduation ceremony.

As I look back on the past 17 years and remember the good nation I left compared to what it became immediately on my departure, I cannot avoid thinking that I am the cause.

It troubles my nights. Truly, it does.

* Manning loves to be called Chelsea these days, which makes me think of Chelsea Clinton who recently said that child marriage and climate change are interconnected. She said this at a CARE National Conference in Washington D.C. where she was introduced as a “thought leader and change agent.” No joke.

A thought leader.

On being Chelsea

The U.S. military is always good for a laugh these days.

Chelsea Elizabeth Manning, who used to be the traitor named Bradley Manning, has been convicted of espionage and sentenced to the Big House for 35 years even though she apparently may get out in a third of that time.

ChelseaBradley, er, I mean Chelsea, has gone girly even though she still has a pair hanging, well, you know, down there, and the military says it will not cut them off for her.

Perhaps a cell mate has a saw-shank.

I have read that before committing her atrocious espionage, she* once flew off the handle during duty hours in what is properly called a hissy fit. The military did not lower her sky-high security rating at that time.

I am ambivalent about this “woman trapped in a man’s body” thing. Being somewhat convinced of reincarnation, I think it’s possible that a previous existence might bleed over into the latest life.

Then again, one could simply view it as mental illness.

But either interpretation indicates something severely wrong, and I imagine the Army had spotted something quite quirky in Chelsea long before the nasty spying matter came to light.

I bet the Army got all squirmy about it and decided to do nothing, not wanting to commit that most heinous of crimes: insensitivity.

While espionage might get you 35 years in a federal slammer, insensitivity will get you drawn and quartered, figuratively speaking, usually.

The American media, always good for a laugh too, embraced Manning’s feminine side in a flash. She is Chelsea now, even on her Wikipedia page. Plus The New York Times, National Public Radio, Huffington Post and their ilk.

Calling her Bradley will get you labeled a bigot, probably a racist too!

Even though Chelsea still sports, you know, a pair.

HasanMoving on with military humor, let’s turn to Nidal Hasan, the Army major and Mohammedan crackpot who killed 13 people on an Army base while yelling Hooray Allah! or something like that.

In spite of his yelling Hooray Allah! the military refused to label this jihadist terrorism. Instead, it was “workplace violence.” Even the sensitive Barry Obama refused to call that spade a spade.

Yes, Hasan simply went postal. Perhaps his mail pouch was overflowing, and he wasn’t going to take it anymore.

Even the White House is good for a laugh at times.

Hasan has been sentenced to death. Good.

May he enjoy his 72 imaginary virgins.
