With only a few more days left before getting the boot, Barry-O is treating the USA the same way a rockstar treats a hotel room. I guess he’s grown bored of picking fights with Russia, because Obama just decided to commute the sentence of the leaking Wikileaks leaker,
Bradley Chelsea Manning, who is totally a girl, by the way. Much the same way cat litter is donut sprinkles.
President Obama on Tuesday largely commuted the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of an enormous 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted the administration and made WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures, famous.
The decision by Mr. Obama rescued Ms. Manning, who twice tried to kill herself last year, from an uncertain future as a transgender woman incarcerated at the men’s military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She has been jailed for nearly seven years, and her 35-year sentence was by far the longest punishment ever imposed in the United States for a leak conviction.
Right. Becuase HE is a traitor to his country. Hence the long prison sentence. We’re living in the digital age where information, in this case secret information critical to military and diplomatic activities “across the world” is rather a big deal. Mayhaps that’s why the prison sentence was 35-years long. Had Manning remained in prison, he would still be a woman 35 years later, by the way. One doesn’t get to be a traitor then decide to change sexes. In hopes of becoming a transgender hero. I threw up a little.
Reactions on the Twitter were pretty much what you’d expect… divided as a mo-fo. Or as ugly as Manning is in a dress. Toss up.
Chelsea Manning's treachery put American lives at risk and exposed some of our nation's most sensitive secrets.

It's OK to set free Chelsea Manning because she exposed George W. But no such luck for Snowden because he embarrassed Obama and the Dems.

So how long after "Chelsea Manning" is released does he go back to being "Bradley Manning" now that the ruse worked for early release?

Rob Eno is a friend of ours, what with us having the same corporate overlords. He makes a good point. At what point does Manning go back to being a lesbian trapped in a man’s body, rather than a man dressing as a woman for media sympathy?
Here’s the feedback from leftist booger lamps.
I'm honored to have served on the committee to free Chelsea Manning and to raise funds for her legal defense. Thanks to all of u who helped!

A flagrant misuse of the word “literally.” Not okay.
Who could have EVER predicted that Manning reax would correlate almost 100% to how you feel about trans people?

Brightest idiot for last. Nice conflation there, Max J. Rosenthal. I guess this means all trans people are itching to betray the United States to their enemies, right? Since Manning represents all trans people? See, two can play the conflation game. You walking case of herpes.
Obviously, the left seems less concerned about the case itself and more concerned about the convict’s downstairs mix-up. Par for the course. To liberals what matters most, what defines you isn’t your accomplishments, what defines you is with whom you prefer to create friction. Of the sexual kind. Or in this case, who you think you are as it relates to creating friction of the sexual kind. Even if your parts don’t match with what you’re telling the world to call you.
Gawd what a mind trip. Who would’ve known that all it takes to be cleared of charges is a wig and some mascara. Take note, Snowden.
Every step of the way, Obama has tried to undermine America, its interests, its security. Just like Chelsea undermined the military. I’m sensing a friendship in the making. Either way, this move is an about-face from Democrats’ previous attitude toward leaks. I guess leaks and leakers are only lionized if they harm Republicans…
