Odd isn’t it? This sudden reverence the Left has for (some) men in uniform? Twitter was awash with typically anti-military ResistanceLOL members sputtering with indignant rage over anyone daring to criticize Alexander “It’s Lieutenant Colonel, please!” Vindman.
The collective “How DARE you!” is deafening, really.
Apparently we’re supposed to accept every bitchy complaint Vindman had as the gospel truth because A) he wore his uniform and has a purple heart and B) he passed “multiple background checks.”
“Occupy Democrats” has a badly-made meme floating around bragging that the impeachment witnesses “passed multiple background checks to ensure their loyalty to America.”
You know who else passed multiple background checks?
Former U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency officer Ron Rockwell Hansen. Hansen pleaded guilty to spying for China in March of this year.
Something tells me passing a background check is not proof positive that an American will remain loyal to America.
Take Aldrich Ames. He was working for the Central Intelligence Agency when he became a KGB mole. In 1994, he was convicted of espionage and is serving a life sentence.
We can’t forget FBI agent Robert Hanssen who was spying for the Soviet Union for over twenty years before he was arrested.
But wait! Here’s one more!
Colonel George Trofimoff, a US military intelligence officer of Russian descent who spent the 1970s and 1980s spying for the Soviet Union. He was convicted in 2001 and sentenced to life in prison – where he died in 2014.
Trofimoff had top secret security clearances. He passed a background check. And he was a Soviet mole.
But passing multiple background checks ensures loyalty to America!!! SO LEAVE LIEUTENANT COLONEL VINDMAN ALONE!!! Derp, derp, derp.
Vindman admitted under oath that Ukraine offered him the position of Defense Minister not once, but three times.
We’re supposed to pretend that’s not fishy simply because Vindman passed multiple background checks and received a purple heart?
Is that really what they’re going with?
In his testimony yesterday Vindman outed himself as the one who leaked information to the so-called “whistleblower.”
Tim Morrison, who testified yesterday afternoon, was so concerned that Vindman was not trustworthy he kept him out of the loop on numerous occasions.
But Vindman passed a background check!!!! He has a purple heart!!!
Then again, are you surprised?
These are the same dinks who laud convicted traitor Bradley Manning as a hero.
As I said last month, this is exactly why Vindman is testifying in full dress uniform. He, his lawyers, and more than likely Adam Schiff himself, want that uniform to act as a kind of Kevlar against any criticism. And naturally the military-hating ResistanceLOL and Schiff’s handmaids in the media happily play along.
It’s why when another Army Lieutenant Colonel (and purple heart recipient), Jim Hickman, went public with Vindman’s history of political activism while in uniform, the New York Times had absolutely no problem attacking Hickman’s credibility. Suddenly they happily overlook military service and a purple heart because that Lieutenant Colonel doesn’t advance their BS anti-Trump narrative.
It’s all a show. All of it.
The ResistanceLOL – in the media, in Congress and on social media – don’t give two shits that Vindman is a Lieutenant Colonel. And they sure as hell don’t care about his purple heart.
The ResistanceLOL is deifying Vindman because he, like they, despises Donald Trump and wants to force him out of office.
He is Ground Zero for the phony “whistleblower” complaint that got this whole mishegas started.
Vindman inflated his importance by claiming falsely that he was the “principal advisor to the National Security Advisor and President on Ukraine and the other countries in my portfolio.” Yeah, he wasn’t. The dude never once spoke to President Trump.
And (yeah, I know I’m repeating myself) “don’t call me Mister” admitted that Ukraine offered him the position of Defense Minister not once, but three times, for crap’s sake.
But heaven forbid we point out any of this because he’s a purple heart recipient who passed multiple background checks!!!!!
Vindman should lose his job. Period. As Josh Hammer wrote in the New York Post, Alexander Vindman condemned himself in his impeachment testimony:
Executive power, especially in the areas of foreign policy and national security, flows from the very person of the president. A lieutenant colonel has no right to interfere with the president’s discretion or attempt to undermine the president’s authority over policy disagreements — which is what the impeachment allegations amount to.
The straightforward remedy for Vindman’s insubordination ought to be his prompt dismissal from his perch on the National Security Council.
Schiff, the media and their ResistanceLOL shock troops know that Vindman’s much-touted testimony was a flop. They know the only person destroyed by Vindman’s testimony was “Don’t call me Mister” Vindman himself.
And while these televised hearings continue to drone on, public support for this baseless “impeachment” is plummeting.
But they won’t stop this charade.
The fact is, they can’t stop this charade.
If Pelosi pulls the plug on this disastrous “inquiry,” the radical Democrat base (not to mention the Well-I-Never-Trumpers) will go postal.
This whole slow motion train wreck coming a year before the 2020 election will hang like a foul stench over the Democrat House majority – not to mention the 2020 Democrat candidates who have no prayer of beating Trump next November.
They deserve every bit of the blowback that’s coming their way.
And all the uniforms and purple hearts in the universe won’t stop that blowback from happening.
