Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 2/7/2020 4:21:13 AM

The White House is reportedly weighing options to dismiss Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council (NSC) in an effort to shrink its foreign policy bureaucracy, a report said.Bloomberg reported that the White House plans to frame it as part of an NSC staff downsizing, not a retaliation. Vindman gave testimony last year during President Donald Trump's impeachment proceedings.Vindman was an important witness for the Democrats in July and raised concerns over Trump's phone call with Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky.

They should just call the Vindman what it is - a very high security risk to our nation, then give him room and board in an isolation ward in Leavenworth for his own protection.

They should assign him to San Francisco security and give him a pooper scooper. He can wear his uniform. Maybe the street people will be impressed with him. Vindman is obviously an arrogant jerk who thought he could take on the President of the United States over bureaucratic trivialities that would essentially turn the President into a hand puppet of the Deep State. THAT alone shows a YUGE lack of good judgement. These kinds of screw ups are better left to someone like Rummey, who also displays arrogance, massively bad judgement, moral failing, and probably won't fare too well either.

Vindman should be indicted for being part of the coup. He should be court martialed. Nothing less.

Why is he still there? He violated his oath of office as an office in our armed forces. I took that oath and administered it to others many times. He must be kicked out and then courts martial should punish him. Failure to do so will inspire other miscreants to follow his 'in-your-face' disrespect and violation of good order. Such cannot stand. .

Vindman is the kind of butt kissing officer that would have thrived under the Kenyan administration. I would suspect that the White House avoided the appearance of obstruction by keeping all of the anti-Trump lapdogs on the payroll but their shield has now been removed. Say goodbye to your cushy careers and Deep State credentials. The article has very little meat.

He set himself up for martyrdom during his testimony, sanctimoniously saying that he knew he was taking a huge risk, but was willing to step out for love of country. Firing him would give the left a trove of ammunition. The smartest thing the administration can do is keep him on staff and lock him out from receiving sensitive information and/or set him up by giving him false information to see if he leaks.

Have just read all of the replies and I need to add one more - for those of you suggesting duty in Alaska may I remind you that Alaska has cities and stores and things like central heat and indoor plumbing. I suggest a weather station in Antarctica where there are none of those things. And give him the assignment of cleaning up all of the penguin and seal poop.

The "White House" (whoever is included in that description) should make a List, check it twice, then fire them all at once. NO need to start leaking who is going and who is staying. Clean House all at once. Have the "New Hires" ready to step in and go to work. Trump has been in offiice long enough to now know who to listen to when people suggest someone to work in the White House. Also, clean house in Intelligence. Seems to me that's where the Rat's Nest is! Put Matt Whitaker in charge of Personnel! He is a True Trump supporter!

On the one hand there will be a MASSIVE hew and cry if Vindman is dumped, no matter how valid (his bad talking this Country to Russians and Poles etc., and file notations by his superiors to that effect). On the other hand, there will be a hew and cry about EVERYTHING Trump does in any case. Six of one, half a dozen of the other.

Japanese companies used to be famous for not firing executives. Instead, they would move you into an empty office with a desk and a chair. Nothing on the desk, nothing in the drawers, and you were not allowed to bring in a brief case with reading material. Just an empty office and you, and absolutely nothing to do. Even though you were still being paid, most didn't last long with nothing to occupy them and quit. Hint hint.

#28, Antarctica wouldn't really work either. The US installation is McMurdo Station and it's very built-up. They even have a pub. Check the overhead and street views on Google Earth. However, they could give him daily duty to clean up the penguin and seal poop and could only return to the station for his required four hours of sleep per night.

#23 is right: this must be done with some thought and strategy. No need to make Vindman any more of a martyr than he already is. At the same time, there are still many deep state/Obama-appointed snakes in the White House and on the NSC staff. As Devin Nunes has suggested, they should all be reassigned to a vacant office building on the other side of the Potomac, with no discernible tasks other than answer the phone when the press toadies call them (and you can bet how long their favored status with the prestitutes will last when they no longer have the ability to spy on the President).

Vindman testified under oath before Congress that three times he was offered the position of Minister of Defense for Ukraine. How the heck does she still have a security clearance? You cannot has a security clearance if you have dual loyalties. Well, at least that is how it was when I had a security clearance. Trump's head of the NSC, AG Barr, etc. need to start dealing with these people. Screw saving the reputations of these institutions. They've been trashed by their own employees.

Vindman has been reprimanded for speaking insultingly to Russian (I think) soldiers about US soldiers. LONG long past due to clean out the BO people AND MORE. Whatever happened to the BO czars? are they all gone? who were they, anyway? What were they doing for 8 years? why did he get away with this? We have heard with our own ears how these bureaucrats think about the nature of their "service." heh. what "service"? It's their privilege, and our obligation and duty to give proper obeisance. A herculean task, but purge those Augean Stables NOW.

#51, dual citizenship is a disqualifying factor for a top secret security clearance. my father was born in Poland, which caused the security investigator, an FBI agent, to do some extra work. But i did receive my top secret clearance, and that was back in the 1960s. The polish constitution, created in the early 1990s, grants citizenship to children whose parent was born in Poland, so that applies to me. If I were to be submitted for a Top Secret clearance today, the U.S./Polish dual citizenship would disqualify me.

The President’s current National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien has publicly stated that it is his intention to reduce the number of policy advisor employed by the National Security Council at the White House that was expanded to well over 200 by former President Obama will be reduced by half to maybe less than 100. That is bound to mean that all the Obama holdovers will be returned to their permanent federal agencies in the near future. Remember the President is entitled to have a National Security Council that will not leak National Security information and not spy on him for partisan political purposes.

I'm with #23 & #50. Be careful not to make a martyr of Vindman. Assign him somewhere where he has no access to secret information. Let him fade away. He likely became an intelligence officer solely because he could speak and write Ukrainian and Russian. If he wants to return to the Urkaine and accept their offers of employment, let him do it.

It was just reported that Alexander Vindman has been fired from the White House NSC and has been escorted off the White House grounds. Now all he has to deal with will be the Army higher ups and you can bet that will not be fun for Vindman, since the Army apparently told him not to wear his Army uniform when he testified before the congressional committees. The next step is to get rid of all the Obama holdovers at the NSC, as the President is entitled to a staff that will not leak national security or other classified information, tattle the President’s conversations to partisan Democrats, or spy on him and his family.

Many media observers will recall the New York Times’ response to Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in 2016. In their subtle, tacit admission that the paper had covered the election with some bias, publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. and editor Dean Baquet promised to “rededicate” themselves to the fundamental mission of the Times and to bring “fairness” to their coverage.Other mainstream news outlets and journalists issued similar mea culpas. Just about all of them had treated Trump’s campaign and supporters with an attitude of spiteful hilarity. The great irony in the media’s hatred, of course, is that his rise would not have been possible without them and their vain attempt to hijack

The Biden campaign also put out a new ad, which put the two candidates' records side-by-side, and was tougher on Buttigieg than the digs the former veep was deploying onstage.

Rush Limbaugh returned to the air on Friday for the first time after announcing his diagnosis with late-stage lung cancer. His retelling of how President Trump got him to the SOTU is nothing short of amazing and revealed why Limbaugh was so surprised to be receiving the Presidential Medal of Honor that night.On Tuesday, Limbaugh was with his wife, about to have a medical procedure to begin his treatment for lung cancer. So we are where I am to have the first procedure that will set up the beginning of treatment. This is Tuesday, and it is scheduled for 5 o’clock in the afternoon.

The Democrats and Democrat-Socialists held a debate last night in New Hampshire following their disastrous caucus in the state of Iowa. Following the debate Chris Matthews went off on the hardcore Socialist wing of the party. (Photo) Chris Matthews: The issue of this campaign is that word socialism. Some people like it. Younger people like it. Those of us like me, who grew up in a cold war and saw some aspects of it while visiting places like Vietnam, like I have, and seeing countries like Cuba, being there. I’m seeing what socialism’s like. I don’t like it. OK? It’s not only not free. It doesn’t freakin’ work!

President Donald Trump on Thursday tweeted out a video that showed images of the people the president honored at the State of the Union alongside clips of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ripping up Trump’s speech. The caption for the video reads “Powerful American Stories Ripped To Shreds By Nancy Pelosi.” Trump supporters would see the point the video makes – that Pelosi ripped up a speech that included the stories of many honorable Americans because she hates Trump. Any politician would do the same for an attack ad. Trump’s speech contained a lot of positive information and Pelosi ripped it up, claiming it was full of lies.

Alexander Vindman hours after he was removed from the National Security Council by the White House. “Col. Vindman got thrown out of the White House today, walked out,” Biden said.

The most important thing that happened during President Trump’s post-impeachment rant at the White House didn’t happen at the lectern. Yes, as usual, he called me a sleaze and scum and a dirty cop and said he likely would no longer be president if he hadn’t fired me. Although I still can’t follow the logic of that last bit, it doesn’t matter. The important thing was what happened in the audience, where there were plenty of intelligent people of deep commitment to religious principle. They laughed and smiled and clapped as a president of the United States lied, bullied, cursed and belittled the faith of other leaders. That was the deeply disturbing

Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council (NSC) in an effort to shrink its foreign policy bureaucracy, a report said.Bloomberg reported that the White House plans to frame it as part of an NSC staff downsizing, not a retaliation. Vindman gave testimony last year during President Donald Trump's impeachment proceedings.Vindman was an important witness for the Democrats in July and raised concerns over Trump's phone call with Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky.

Before you crucify me for not condemning “the traitor,” please hear me out. My position has nothing to do with whether I agree with Romney’s “guilty” vote on the first article of impeachment. And it has nothing to do with whether I believe he is a true conservative. Or even a loyal Republican for that matter. It has to do with something far deeper. Are you willing to hear me out? I’m quite aware of the litany of charges against Mitt Romney’s past political record and business dealings (see here and here and here and here).

CHICAGO -- The brutal beating of a 68-year-old man by 11 teens on a passenger train here Monday was captured in a disturbing, graphic video obtained by Fox News. The Chicago Police Department told Fox News the beating is under investigation, but no one is in custody because the victim “was unable to identify his attacker(s) due to his injuries.” A police source told Fox that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office “wouldn’t touch” the case if the victim can’t identify those accused or is unable to cooperate. When reached about prosecuting the case, state’s attorney's office responded: "We are unable to comment."

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who made waves as a witness during the Trump impeachment proceedings, was fired Friday by the National Security Council and escorted off of the White House grounds, Fox News has confirmed. Vindman was on detail to the National Security Council from the Department of Defense, and it is expected he will return there. It comes just two days after President Trump was acquitted in the Senate on the impeachment charges brought by the House last year over his dealings with Ukraine.

He does so having spoken publicly once, and only pursuant to a subpoena from the United States Congress,” Pressman said in a statement.

A majority of New Hampshire Democrats said in a new poll that they would rather a "giant meteor strikes the Earth, extinguishing all human life" than see President Trump reelected. The University of Massachusetts Lowell survey of 400 Democratic voters asked which candidates they would support in the state's primary Tuesday, with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) tying for first place at 23 percent support. But voters were also asked in the online survey conducted by YouGov: "Which of the following outcomes would you prefer occur on November 3, 2020? Donald Trump wins re-election or

Hoping to fan racial flames in his direction before the South Carolina primary, Pete Buttigieg tweeted out his support for Trayvon Martin on the occasion of what would have been Martin’s 25th birthday, February 5. “Trayvon Martin would have been 25 today,” Mayor Pete tweeted. “How many 25th birthdays have been stolen from us by white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice, and fear?” Buttigieg threw in a Black Lives Matter hashtag just to make sure black voters knew he was down for the struggle. This tweet would have been unfortunate six months ago. Today, it is unforgivable. In December, attorney Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch,

Rep. Ayanna Pressley said she intends to "bring the fire" if Americans don't adopt her political ideology during a conversation with NPR's Democracy Now as part of the nonprofit organization Rising Majority's conversation with "the Squad." "As I said when we were at the border, we're going to keep telling and elevating these stories with the hopes that you will see the light," said Pressley. "And if you don't see the light, then we will bring the fire. That's just how it progresses." Pressley made the comments in a panel discussion at Howard University in Washington with Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib, all Democrats.

Morning Joe regular Donny Deutsch claimed on Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s decline in popularity over the past couple of months is due to her being strident and unlikable—all while making sure everyone knew he wasn’t peddling a sexist trope. Following her third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses and polls currently showing her lagging ahead of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough asked Vice correspondent Shawna Thomas what may be behind Warren’s “precipitous decline over the past two months.” “You know, just two months ago we were talking about what a stellar campaign she had
‘The Most Radical Piece of Immigration Legislation’:

‘New Way Forward’ Bill

Immigration experts and House Republicans are balking at the New Way Forward Act, a Democratic bill that is being described as an embrace of “open borders” and likely to be the most “radical” legislation ever introduced in history. Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019, to seemingly little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, would make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens, empower immigration judges to nullify deportation orders, and also calls for the return of previously deported illegal aliens.
