One of the key figures in the impeachment of Donald Trump has described being forced into retirement by 'a campaign of bullying, intimidation and retaliation', and likened the current government of the United States to the dictatorship of the Soviet Union. Lt Colonel Alexander Vindman, 45, wrote a scathing op ed in The Washington Post on Saturday - the first day of his retirement. 'At no point in my career or life have I felt our nation's values under greater threat and in more peril than at this moment,' said the Ukrainian-born lieutenant colonel.

Comments:

What a hysteric. An authoritarian regime would have either sent him to the gulag or executed him for treason.

Perjury and insubordination is a fast way to get thrown out of the military. Arrogance, ignorance, and grandiosity didn't inspire Vindman's superiors with admiration, nor anyone having the bad luck of meeting him.

If you spy on your commander-in-chief and report your information to someone outside of your chain of command, you deserve to be thrown into the dustbin of history, at the very least. Vindman simply did not like who his commander-in-chief was. I can imagine he was loyal to the tips of his fingers and toes about any of the numerous indiscretions of the Obama administration.

This ingrate came to US with a program for resettlement of Jews from the USSR. There is no gratitude in this uniformed martinet. His pal Eric Ciaramella from the CIA is the unpunished whistleblower that used Vindman’s information about the Ukraine. Another Russian immigrant was the Subsource for the imaginary Fusion GPS Dossier organized by Nellie Ohr and the MI6 guy. This Russian worked for the Hall woman at the Democrat think-tank run by Strobe Talbott who personally took the Russia Russia Dossier to the Kerry Department of State for Shearer, Blumenthal, and Victoria Nuland to disseminate. Strobe Talbott hates Russians and wrote a book, which I read, accusing Russians of antisemitism they expressed not knowing he was one. The swamp runs deep.

Presumably at this point in his career he held a Regular Army commission. As a retired officer he remains subject to the UCMJ. And if he pushes his luck sufficiently he can be recalled to active duty for the sole purpose of charging him and trying him for the relevant offense.

Sorry Ltc. Vindman, but 'YOU' ruined your own military career by violating your oath as an officer for political gain, and committing treason. Keep in mind that you can still be called back to active duty, be court-martialed, and sent away too Leavenworth!!! You are simply reaping what you've sown!!!

One of the priorities of the Nobama administration was getting rid of the higher up brass in the military who might go against him. Vindman as a GREAT fit for Nobama and his weenie military leaders, who only testified because he was "offended" by the Commander in Chief and it was HE who had to stand in for the traitor "whistler blower". There was not "there" there when Mr. Trump released the transcript of the call, and Vindman disgraced himself trying to create some sort of something when prodded by the Dems...

The week before I married on my family’s homestead in Alaska, we found out Sarah Palin had been picked to be Sen. John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate. This was big news for Alaska. Nearly everyone we knew was thrilled, even people who weren’t huge Palin fans. At the time, Palin was a popular governor who’d made a name for herself fighting a corrupt good ol’ boys system that had prevailed for too long in state politics. She was a Republican, but seen as a moderate who was willing to work with Democrats and take on powerful special interests, including the oil companies that held sway in the state capitol.

Former Vice President Joe Biden seems to have announced Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. There was an inquisitive photographer's shot of his notes suggesting just that. But there's also some question about whether she's really qualified. The media has already seeded the ground with quotes from some of the dumbest lawyers in America to state she is a “natural born citizen” under Article II of the U.S. Constitution, and is therefore, eligible to be vice president or president.

If elected, she would be the nation’s first female, first Black and first Asian American vice president.

As regular readers of my column know, I’m no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s putting it mildly. I don’t like his chronic dishonesty. I don’t like narcissism. I don’t like his nastiness and his silly name-calling. I detest his need to constantly cause chaos, as he did with a recent tweet suggesting we should postpone the 2020 presidential election. There’s nothing about this man’s character that I like. And I hope he wins re-election in a landslide. Actually what I mean is that I hope the Republican candidate beats the Democratic candidate. And I wish the Republican candidate were almost anybody else.

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening. Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy's father's house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head. Hinnant's seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL. Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random.

A recent landmark poll of 20,000 citizens undertaken by the Knight Foundation and Gallup found that Americans’ hope for and trust in an objective media is all but lost. They see not only an ever-growing partisanship in news reporting but a determination by the mainstream media to push a political agenda instead of honestly disseminating the news. While generic faith in the media has been gradually declining over recent decades, the precipitous drop in trust and questions about what motivates the mainstream media can be traced to June 2015 and Donald Trump’s entry into the presidential sweepstakes.

Kamala Harris, tapped on Tuesday as Joe Biden’s running mate, attended services at both a Black Baptist church and a Hindu temple growing up – an interfaith background that reflects her historic status as the first Black woman and woman of South Asian descent on a major-party presidential ticket. The 55-year-old first-term Democratic senator, whose name means “lotus” in the Sanskrit language, identifies as a Baptist as an adult and brought another faith into her life in 2014 when she married Douglas Emhoff, a Jewish attorney. Their wedding featured the breaking of a glass, a Jewish tradition, and Harris’ stepchildren

Joseph R. Biden Jr. has told allies that he has interviewed every finalist in his vice-presidential search, and his advisers are planning an announcement for the middle of the week, people briefed on the selection process said on Monday. In a sign that the choice is now in Mr. Biden’s hands alone, the four-member committee that screened his potential running mates is said to have effectively disbanded — its work is complete, Biden allies said, and there is little left to do except for Mr. Biden to make up his mind. Mr. Biden’s political team has prepared rollout plans for several of the finalists, and he is expected to announce his decision

It’s not just a few Upper West Siders who are fleeing New York: Moving companies say they’re swamped with calls from residents looking to ditch the city — even though the COVID crisis has waned. One likely reason: The virus was but the last straw; New Yorkers are fed up with the shootings and lootings, homelessness on the streets, sub-par online schools, sky-high taxes and the sheer obliviousness of pols like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. On Sunday, The Post highlighted families who’ve given up on the Upper West Side — now teeming with junkies, the homeless, convicts and others — and are headed for greener pastures outside Gotham.

Left-wing prosecutors have implemented soft-on-crime approaches to criminal justice across America, in some instances making it a matter of policy in major cities not to prosecute specific crimes, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found. A common, though not universal, feature of prominent left-wing district attorneys is the backing of political organizations funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros. The New York Times has credited Soros with pioneering the “push to overhaul prosecutors’ offices” across the country. Cook County, Illinois, State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx, whose jurisdiction includes Chicago, took office in 2017 after winning her election with the help of a Soros-funded super PAC.
