No, that is not a comment from Bill and Hillary’s daughter. That is actually coming from Bradley Manning, the army person who gave secret information about national security issues to be published on WikiLeaks. Manning was recently sentenced to 35 years in a military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
Manning issued a statement to the media asking that he/she now be called by a new name–Chelsea. She says that she is and always has been a female and now it is time for this to be public. I don’t envy Chelsea going to prison as a man-woman, especially with military prisoners locked up there.
Chelsea’s lawyer says he wants to make sure that the military abide by his client’s wishes to begin hormone therapy immediately. If they refuse, the lawyer said he will do everything possible to force the to do so. There was a similar case recently in Australia where a convicted murderer requested a sex change operation and got it. The public pays for this with tax money.
In addition, Chelsea’s attorney is asking the White House for a pardon or at least to have the military reduce the sentence. I’ll tell you something, that lawyer never gives up! I was thinking of having him issue a statement to the media from me asking everyone to now call me, Emperor of the Universe.
This all indicates huge programming issues with Chelsea. Here is a case of androgyny, espionage, military intrigue and political attacks, all rolled in to one individual! Makes Sirhan Sirhan look like Bozo.
The media is showing pictures of Manning dressed in a blond female wig and wearing lipstick. He does make a pretty woman. This aspect of his life was used as part of his defense during his trial. A letter from Manning is being sent to President Obama. Part of it reads:
“I regret if my actions hurt anyone or harmed the United States. It was never my intent to hurt anyone.”
Manning said the disclosure was done “out of a love for my country and a sense of duty to others.”
Personally, I feel that disclosure of improper government actions should be allowed. We need to remember that the government is supposed to work under the direction of its citizens, NOT the other way around!
Let me know your thoughts.
