Alexander Vindman: They Aren’t Paying
Me $1 Million for My Memoir for Nothing

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 8/5/2020 10:17:08 AM

On August 1, the Washington Post published an op-ed by the now-retired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, of impeachment fame. The paper’s editors had to heavily revise the piece prior to publication. American Greatness has obtained the text of Vindman’s first draft. After 21 years of playing soldier, I am now a civilian. I decided to retire, as difficult as it was, because I am getting a cool $1 million for my upcoming memoir, and no longer need to pretend that I care. I was hoping for $2 million, but I suppose $1 million will have to do. Besides, I had every expectation of being promoted to a general, but

Comments:

Bardmesser’s take on his first draft or the real deal? The published op-ed is linked. You be the judge. Either way, this one sounds like it could be Vindman...

He was clearly playing soldier, from what I saw, and wasn't squared-away. A disgrace to the uniform, is fat-boy, commie, loser, vindman. He's all 8-up.

They Aren’t Paying Me off for Nothing. FIFY Why not? You testified to something you didn't hear, so why not for a memoir - it's a form of money laundering.

What a self-serving smug little puppy. FTA (emphasis mine): This chorus of love from Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, and Schiff drowns out the spurious criticisms from a president who never should have won the election, whom I never respected, and whom I never had any intention of serving. Then you should have resigned your commission in November 2016.

Yes, yes they are Vindman. Just like they paid, Omarossa, Stormy, that NYC hag who keeps claiming Trump did her in a department store, Bolton and so on. All money down the same rat hole and you are just the latest to be exploited. My hope is that Trump puts an embargo on anything you spew, simply for national security purposes.

Fortunatly, publishers are able to make money on books by Hannity, Levin, Gutfeld, Pirro, Dobbs, and others enough to cover their "losses" (or political payoffs) on books written by leftists. I laugh every Sunday when I quickly scan the "best sellers" list. Mrs Obama's tome is still there almost two years after it was first foisted on the populace. Don't tell me top-ten numbers are sold every week. It's kind of like relieving yourself on my shoe and telling me it's raining.

The overweight, splay-footed Vindman is the embodiment of the word “dork” and just what Leftist losers would envision as the perfect military man but I couldn’t read past the part where he said that a year ago he was the most important American in uniform. What a sickening statement from an officer let alone an aspiring General. He came across as egotistical, dull and totally lacking in charisma during the hearings last year but his sense of self-awareness is so horrible that he probably tried Harlequin Books first with the offer to pose for the cover dressed like Hercules with glasses. The Army dodged a bullet he resigned and even if he is guaranteed $1M for his book he will be shocked when exactly no one except his mother buys it.

I am retired Army and a Vietnam vet with a Purple Heart. I wish I had standing to file charges against this Pilsbury-style "Dough boy". He should be tried and convicted of disobeying a direct order--"Do NOT testify before any Congressional Committee." Conduct unbecoming an officer--"Lying to superiors, providing council to a foreign government (Ukraine) outside of the realm of his duty responsibilities." Violation of his enlistment oath to obey the lawful orders of those in higher authority--"Conveying sensitive information to a person or persons not authorized to have said info." That is more than enough for a reduction to the lowest enlisted rank, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and a Dishonorable Discharge following 5 years at hard labor in Leavenworth.

While much speculation inside the Beltway says U.S. Attorney John Durham will punt the results of his so-called Spygate investigation past the election to avoid charges of political interference, sources who have worked with Durham on past public corruption cases doubt he'll bend to political pressure — and they expect him to drop bombshells before Labor Day.

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
