Via a reader tip comes news that Chelsea Manning is going to run for the US Senate in Maryland:

Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst convicted of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks, confirmed Sunday that she’s running in Maryland for a Senate seat.

“Yup, we’re running for Senate,” Manning tweeted three days after she filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.

The tweet also included a campaign video indicating her intention to run in the 2018 Maryland Democratic primary and was followed by a tweet seeking donations to her campaign.

I have a hard time believing the Democrats would allow a traitor and convicted felon like Manning to get elected to the Senate.  Manning is basically a Cindy Sheehan like figure who thinks she is more important than what she really is.  When Sheehan ran for Congress she was crushed by the Democrats, I expect the same thing will happen to Manning considering she has already used up her political usefulness.



I am a US military veteran that has served all over the world to include in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Korea. I have been blogging about Korea, Northeast Asia, and the US military for over 10 years.


  1. Here’s a thought, being a member of Congress requires a certain level of security clearance does it not? I am “sure” the people who do these investigations will just “forget” the fact that this person was a “traitor and convicted felon” in a former life and just judge “her” on the merits of “her” life since undergoing reassignment surgery. Oh yeah, like that’s ever going to happen!

    For those of you who are sarcastically challenged, my writing above is just dripping with sarcasm. Please do not interpret anything I have said here as anything but disdain for this self-serving individual.

    Come on, Chelsea baby…

    …nothing wrong with wanting to let that inner woman free… but come on, girl… show some effort.

    Throwing on lipstick and eye liner, then knocking back some estrogen pills, is pretty lazy when you sport an easy-to-care-for boy’s haircut and shop in the boy’s section of the thrift store.

    Get your act together, ’cause you only got a couple more good years in you.

    Nobody has time for a sad old man with títs and a díck.
