Breaking My Blog-Silence Today

It's been quite some time since I posted on my blog.  I've been focusing on my Facebook Page.  Today I came across an article at New Zeal about debunking anti-Ted Cruz myths.   I encourage you to check it out.

The article includes the video (below) of Senator Cruz speaking on the floor of the Senate during the last budget fiasco in October 2015.  It's long (93 minutes), but I watched the entire thing this morning and was so impressed that I decided it was worth not only posting it on FB, but breaking my blog-silence today to pass it along here at The Conservative Lady blog.

Some of you may have seen Senator Cruz give this speech in October.  If not, or if you don't remember it, I encourage you to take the time and listen to what he had to say about the budget and about the Washington establishment (Democrat and Republican).  This is why they hate him.

By the time I get to vote in a primary (March), the field will be whittled down even more than it is today.  I'm voting for whoever is chosen as the Republican nominee in the General Election.  I just hope that whoever it is, he believes about the Washington establishment (especially the GOP Washington establishment), as does Senator Cruz.

No matter who you're favorite candidate is, I sure hope you'll give this a watch (even if you have to do it a little bit at a time).  It will certainly be worth it.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Will Be Charged With Desertion - Video

Bill O'Reilly did a follow-up on his report last week about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  According to Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, the Army plans to charge Sgt. Bergdahl with desertion.  Unfortunately, the White House has been delaying the report.  Here's the video of the January 26, 2015 report:

UPDATE 1/26/15 - Video Updates: White House Controlling Sgt. Bergdahl Situation?

My first post about Sgt. Bowe R. Bergdahl was dated July 19, 2009.  I followed up with a few more posts.  Until the June 2, 2014 update on my last Bergdahl post, I had no idea that Sgt. Bergdahl most probably had deserted.

The O'Reilly Factor had an update on Bowe Bergdahl last night (January 16).  I can't find the video, but below is an excerpt from the website:
Factor Followup
Bowe Bergdahl Update
It's been six months since President Obama exchanged five terrorists for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Military analysts Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer and Col. David Hunt reported on the Army's long-awaited report on the Bergdahl situation. "This is not a Pentagon or Army issue at this point," Shaffer lamented. "I have talked to sources who say the decision is now being controlled by the White House, and there is pressure to go easy on Bergdahl because President Obama embraced the family when he returned. It's all political at this point." Hunt objected to the apparent politicization of the case. "This is an injustice to the American people and to the soldiers. There is a discipline and leadership issue at the core of Bergdahl's desertion and the guys who died trying to find him." The Factor vowed to vigorously pursue the story: "We will call General Martin Dempsey and ask him to come on or issue a statement. If he doesn't do that, then I'm going to lay this right at his doorstep. We'll have that report on Monday."
I'm not surprised that the White House has taken over the decisions about Sgt. Bergdahl.  So many questions are unanswered, one being why Mr. Obama released 5 GITMO prisoners in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl.   Just a few days ago, we learned that Mr. Obama has released 5 more GITMO prisoners.  Guess "5" is the lucky number for Islamic terrorists these days.  I'm sure this is all in preparation for his keeping the promise to close the prison.

I continue to follow this story because of how sorry I felt for Sgt. Bergdahl at the time of his "capture" and how disheartened I feel that he most probably is a deserter.

It will be interesting if Bill O'Reilly actually gets a response from General Dempsey over the weekend and what O'Reilly's report will include on Monday's show.
