David Yeagley sells-out US Soldiers for personal gain

from the Bad Eagle journal

“I for one resent lies” (the piano doctor, Mar. 2003)
David Yeagley hates liars, so he continually says. But, of course, like the blogger he is, he loves neo-con liars just fine, like Dubya Bush. In fact, Bush’s neo-con media whores assist David to maintain his delusion of being a Comanche, when no Comanches themselves will do that, so Yeagley loves them.

But despite the obvious benefits of his own personal gain, why is Yeagley continually supporting the neo-con agenda like immoral preemptive war, horrendous US torture policies, and the unconstitutional unitary executive?

Maybe it’s because he cares more about his own image than the lives of our soldiers.

Maybe it’s because he loves his masquerade as a phony Comanche more than he cares about doing what’s good for our soldiers.

Maybe it’s because he cares more about his own fake “warrior” image than he cares about the genuine warriors.

Maybe it’s because he values his man-in-the-mirror vanity more than he values the concrete boots-on-the-ground reality.

Maybe little david, the piano doctor, selfishly cleaves to the image of his own golden idol at the expense of the truth, the reality, and the US soldiers and their families.

David Yeagley’s “warrior” fantasy:
“The war is going well... Where were our boys wreaking vengeance on the enemy? ... "There’s power in the blood!" says the old 1899 evangelical hymn... we need the blood of warriors” (the piano doctor, Nov. 2001 )

“We are willing to pay a horrible price, to prove simple point: we are compassionate ... we hope the world will see our superior approach to the whole matter. If thousands of our soldiers die, this in fact is what they will have died for: the character of America... Let's hope that after it's over, there will indeed be ‘malice toward none’” (the piano doctor, Mar. 2003).


“America could easily level Iraq, with just the right bomb or two... I for one am terribly grateful for such a man as President Bush... Bush stands alone because no one else could, or would. Bravo, Bush. You are one brave man” (the piano doctor, Mar. 2003)


“the way in which the United States and Great Britain and the coalition forces have conducted this military effort make it demonstrably the most humane, considerate war in the history of mankind... the world will see what a great character America has as a country” (the piano doctor, Mar. 2003)

“America is about the only major civilization in history not to make a fundamental practice of torture... torture never became an established practice of the American government or of the American military” (the piano doctor, Mar. 2003).


“War has an end. War, real war, can end ‘terrorism’” (the piano doctor, Oct. 2003).


“President Bush gave a very sincere and matured speech last night. It was visionary... It was a beautiful thing... Indeed” (the piano doctor, Jun. 2005)


“people just can't deal with the hard work of George Bush, and the 'war on terror.' ... Iraq is actually a tremendous victory. Historical, and unprecedented... The American soldiers don't want to pull out of Iraq” (the piano doctor, Nov. 2006)
Just like the other neo-cons and his personal savior Dubya Bush, David Yeagley would never for a moment question the need to make war, nor think too much about which country to destroy and occupy. For Yeagley, however inconceivable this logic remains, he actually champions war as a means to achieve peace, as if this type of pseudo-peace could ever be lasting or genuine. Just as Bush calls incessantly for America to “STAY THE COURSE,” the piano doctor continually rallies to destroy and occupy other countries to “end terrorism?” If we consider Martin Luther King Jr's advice, what Yeagley stands for is ultimate weakness. Who would you trust with the future of America, Yeagley or Dr. King?
“The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder hate... Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction. The chain reaction of evil — hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars — must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the darkness of annihilation” (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1967. “Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?”)
The ill-logic of Yeagley's 'eat or be eaten' warrioresque fantasy is breathtaking in its recklessness. But Bush’s and the neo-cons' problems are just beginning.
Michael Isikoff and Evan Thomas recently finished a Newsweek article (June 4, 2007 issue), called “Bush's Monica Problem: The Gonzales Mess,” that identifies Dubya has having direct control over the political ‘hit list of judges’ created by Alberto Gonzales. Not only did Bush know about the neo-con politicizing of the Department of Justice, he was controlling it:
“Gonzales, the president's lawyer and Texas buddy, is twisting slowly in the wind, facing a vote of no confidence from the Senate. Bush's role has remained shadowy throughout the controversy over the eavesdropping program. But there are strong suggestions that he was an active presence. On the night after Ashcroft's operation, as Ashcroft lay groggy in his bed, his wife, Janet, took a phone call. It was Andy Card, asking if he could come over with Gonzales to speak to the attorney general. Mrs. Ashcroft said no, her husband was too sick for visitors. The phone rang again, and this time Mrs. Ashcroft acquiesced to a visit from the White House officials. Who was the second caller, one with enough power to persuade Mrs. Ashcroft to relent? The former Ashcroft aide who described this scene would not say, but senior DOJ officials had little doubt who it was - the president. (The White House would not comment on the president's role.) Ashcroft's chief of staff, David Ayres, then called Comey, Ashcroft's deputy, to warn him that the White House duo was on the way. With an FBI escort, Comey raced to the hospital to try to stop them, but Ashcroft himself was strong enough to turn down his White House visitors' request.

The morning after the scene at Ashcroft's hospital bed, the president met with Comey. "We had a full and frank discussion, very informed. He was very focused," Comey later testified, choosing his words carefully. But it wasn't until Bush had met with Mueller that the president agreed to take steps (still unspecified, but probably involving more oversight) to bring the eavesdropping program back inside the boundaries of the law. Mueller has never said what he told the president, but it is a good bet that he said he would resign if the changes were not made. Bush could not afford to see Mueller go, nor could he risk losing the rest of the Justice Department leadership over a matter of principle in an election year.”
So David Yeagley hates liars, does he? I think he hates to lose his own phony “warrior” image, that’s what I think. In fact, Yeagley is so consumed with his fake Comanche persona that he is willing to sacrifice all else to keep it going, including the selling out of America’s core values, and selling out our troops in the bungled and unnecessary war. Yeagley is the supreme sellout, arguing to crucify increasing numbers of US troops and countless more civilians for a few pieces of silver.

How do I spell "Yeagley?" J-U-D-A-S.
