Chelsea Manning officially announced the former soldier’s bid for the United States Senate this week, releasing an apocalyptic campaign advertisement that highlighted the chaos that plagued Charlottesville, Virginia last year, saying we live in times of “fear, suppression, and hate.”
The transgender, left-leaning ex-soldier confirmed the run for Maryland’s Senate seat on Monday, posting the strange footage on social media that states America “needs someone willing to fight” for Democratic principles.
“We live in trying times. Times of fear, of suppression, of hate. We don’t need more or better leaders. We need someone willing to fight,” said Manning. “We need to stop asking them to give us our rights. They won’t support us, they won’t compromise. We need to stop suspecting that our systems will somehow fix themselves. We need to actually take the reins of power from them.”
“We don’t need them anymore, we can do better. You’re damn right we got this,” Manning added.
The former soldier, born Bradley Manning, was sentenced to 35 years in prison for releasing highly-classified military documents without permission, but was prematurely released by President Barack Obama in his final hours in office.
“Chelsea Manning is somebody who accepted responsibility for the crimes she committed,” said an Obama spokesperson in January 2017. “The president’s concern was rooted in the fact that the sentence handed down is longer than sentences given to other individuals who committed comparable crimes.”

TRAITOR: Chelsea Manning Says ‘F*** THE POLICE’ on Cop Appreciation Day
Convicted government turncoat Chelsea Manning, born Bradley Manning, didn’t hold back when commenting on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day on social media, pathetically posting “F*** the police” as the nation shows its support for the men and women in blue.
The ex-soldier –convicted in 2013 of disseminating over 750,000 documents to WikiLeaks regarding the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the ongoing War on Terror- posted the vicious statement on twitter, calling on all Americans to “Disarm the police.”
“F*** the police,” Manning wrote, adding “#DisarmThePolice #WeGotThis #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay.”

“Police kill hundreds of people every year with absolute impunity,” Manning baselessly added.
President Barack Obama commuted Manning’s sentence during his final hours in the Oval Office, saying the punishment was “very disproportionate relative to what other leakers have received.”
“Let’s be clear, Chelsea Manning has served a tough prison sentence,” President Obama said. “The notion that the average person who is thinking about exposing vital classified information will think that it goes unpunished; I don’t think would get that impression from the sentence that Chelsea Manning has served.”
DESERTION: Bowe Bergdahl to Plead Guilty to Abandoning His Post
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will plead guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy later this month; avoiding a prolonged trial over allegations he voluntarily abandoned his post while fighting against the Taliban in Afghanistan back in 2009.
According to Fox News, Bergdahl plans to submit his guilty plea in the coming weeks, with sentencing expected to start on October 23rd. The veteran faces five years imprisonment for desertion and a possible life sentence for his misbehavior charge.
The 31-year-old Sergeant was the center of a media firestorm in 2014, when former President Barack Obama negotiated his release after being held captive by Taliban forces for nearly five years.
The Obama administration exchanged Bergdahl for five high-profile Taliban prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay, and came under fierce criticism over the conditions of Bergdahl’s capture and suspicions he voluntarily abandoned his post.
President Trump harshly critiqued his predecessor’s negotiations with the terror group, and routinely called Bergdahl a “traitor” throughout his presidential campaign.
“We’re tired of Sgt. Bergdahl, who’s a traitor, a no-good traitor,” said then candidate-Trump.
Earlier this year, the Army Sgt.’s legal team suggested President Trump’s harsh rhetoric made a fair trial “near impossible.”
“President Trump has made it impossible for SGT Bergdahl to obtain a fair trial,” Bergdahl’s lawyers wrote. “President Trump transformed his rallies into a televised traveling lynch mob. Justice cannot be done and public confidence in military justice cannot be maintained under these circumstances.”
