Just when you think things in America cannot get any more nuts, a news story breaks that proves you wrong which is exactly what happened today. Earlier this afternoon it was discovered that Bradley Manning—oops, Chelsea Manning the traitorous transgender has decided to run for Senate in the state of Maryland and of course, the announcement has the left cheering “her” on, and why not? The left is really keen on traitors in government positions, but that is a different story for another day.
Now, just to be sure we are all on the same page here is a brief reminder of who Chelsea Manning is, ok?
Manning was a former Army intelligence analyst turned traitor that leaked thousands of classified documents which eventually lead to his/her arrest. Manning was charged with 22 offenses, including aiding the enemy, which was the most serious charge and could have resulted in a death sentence.
However, Manning got off easy and was sentenced to just 35 years and in all honesty that is where the story should have ended, but it didn’t. While behind bars, Manning was able to apply for a sex change operation and become “Chelsea” all on the taxpayer’s dime. Then to add insult to injury, right before Barack Obama left the White House he commuted Manning’s sentence to time served, allowing this traitor to walk among us.
Well, apparently Manning is not done slapping the American people with her/his deplorable behavior and has decided to run for Senate, and in today’s climate, this traitor could actually win.
Here is more from The Washington Post:
Chelsea E. Manning, the transgender former Army private who was convicted of passing sensitive government documents to Wikileaks, has filed to run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, according to federal election filings.
Manning would be challenging Democrat Ben Cardin, who has served two terms in the Senate and is up for re-election in November. Cardin is Maryland’s senior senator and is considered an overwhelming favorite to win a third term.
Manning declined to speak about her filing or why she is running when reached at her apartment on the top floor of a North Bethesda luxury high rise Saturday. She said she might release a statement next week.
“Our only statement on the record is, ‘No statement’,” Manning said.
Manning, 30, who is formerly known as Bradley Manning, was convicted in 2013 of the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history and was sentenced to 35 years in prison. Last year, then-President Obama commuted Manning’s sentence to time served and she was released from a military prison in Kansas.
The news of Manning’s filing caught Maryland’s political class by surprise on Saturday afternoon. It was first reported in a tweet by conservative media outlet Red Maryland.
Cardin, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has an extensive fundraising base within Maryland and is not considered particularly vulnerable to a challenge from within the state. However, an outside candidate with national name recognition, such as Manning, could tap a network of donors interested in elevating a progressive agenda.
Cardin’s spokeswoman and the Democratic Party of Maryland declined to comment on Manning’s filing.
Ok, there is no doubt that Cardin needs to go, but the seat needs to be reassigned to a Republican and not someone who was convicted of leaking classified documents.
Not only is Manning not to be trusted, but also has shown an enormous disrespect for our country and those that serve it. For instance, just recently, Manning tweeted this little gem on Twitter displaying “her” lack of disrespect on Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

First off it is too bad that this traitor is out of prison, but to be allowed to run for Senate is disgusting. Manning showed precisely what type of person “she” is and that is one that cannot be trusted under any circumstances and must be defeated this year. Our country deserves better than Manning to be in a position of leadership and it is about the time that the people of Maryland demand that.
What do you think? Is it possible that Manning could win the Maryland Senate race? Sound off in the comments below!
