Bill O'Reilly Not Sure Who Runs U.S. Military, Maybe Moon Monsters?

News


Good god, this is what we get for having already posted something early-ish about the collective negative IQ of the radioactive mutant cow chips employed at Fox News and then figuring we were done hearing about them for the day. Ugh. So, Bill O'Reilly, who controls the U.S. military? ("Relevant" part starts at 1:20.) Is it possibly the United States government, as denoted by the initials "U.S." right before the name of the military and Article Two of the Constitution? Nah, sayeth the loofah dragon, can't be, more likely it's the same guys who run the country "Pentagon." Huh. Well, this at least explains why the government can cut billions of dollars from the social safety net without touching the defense budget, because apparently they aren't even funding them!

Alan Colmes, surely there are other lucrative media jobs that do not involve arguing with a hot turd:

O’Reilly replied: “The [government] can’t run the military because it’s military controlled, not civilian.”

“That’s government run, it’s still the government doing it,” Colmes countered.

“But the Pentagon calls the shots,” he said.

“But the commander-in-chief is a civilian, the government runs the military well,” Colmes insisted.

“That is wrong,” O’Reilly said. “The Pentagon calls the shots on how the military operates. The Pentagon is military people.”

“That’s the government,” Colmes said. “It’s the government, it’s still the government.”

O’Reilly concluded: “They work for and the government running it are two different things.”

Speaking of the government "not running" the military, we hear Barack Obama finally agreed not to veto the Department of Defense authorization bill after lawmakers agreed to make changes, maybe to the batshit insane part that grants the U.S. military power to indefinitely and forever and ever detain without trial citizens who seem fishy? Let's check the AP report:

"We took significant steps to address the administration's concerns," Rep. Adam Smith of Washington state, the top Democrat on the House panel, told reporters.

The legislation would deny suspected terrorists, even U.S. citizens seized within the nation's borders, the right to trial and subject them to indefinite detention. The lawmakers made no changes to that language.

Nope! The administration's "concerns" do not extend to its own citizens. Enjoy Gitmo, everybody! [Raw Story/ AP]

We have been hearing ever since late last week that Michael Cohen is probably about to be arrested and probably going to be indicted on one million charges and probably maybe might be about to try to flip and make a deal so that he doesn't end up in prison for the rest of his natural life. In fact, we have been hanging our hopes on it, because everything else sucks. Sure, we are still filled with joy over how Paul Manafort is on day four of JAIL, MOTHERFUCKER, JAIL, but then we remembered what is happening on the border and what we are saying right now is we need something happy.

It was a big weekend for the New Cruelty, with the first tent city for kids opening in Texas and immediately becoming the focus of protests, the head of Homeland Security lying about the Trump administration's family separation policy, and one of the architects of that policy, Stephen Miller, telling the New York Times about what a brilliant policy it is. And more and more kids continue to be taken from their families. Let's round up the latest in the ongoing nightmare our crapsack nation has become.
