Jim Jordan crushing it.

Odd hearing all these commies praise a US military man - first ever but than again he is one of their political officers.

Man now the commies are saying "Sniper" with a snarl like they are bad guys.....

Calling out the Maiden Revolution like it was a great thing. It was the theft of a countries sovereignty by the EU/US with the assistance of the corrupt Ukrainian government.

He's been hurt by all the hurtful things that have been said, I'm sure his injuries were really bad as he went to work the next day!!!
When in Nam we had guys get the PH for minor scratches and just needed a band-aide, really hurt bad.
He's where he needs to be in DC.

I think we just found out who the "whistle blower" is. Mac:unsure:

Vindman is the source of the "first hand" report but the whistleblower is Chiaramello that went to the Intelligence IG conveniently after the rules were changed to allow other than "first hand" testimony to be considered admissable.

Seems Vindman's Former superiors remember an anti-American far left partisan rather than some politically neutral war hero...

He's a political fuck, like we all knew political fucks when we served, who rose only because a communist was President for four years. Under any normal administration he would have never made rank, and would have been moved out of the Army. Obama's legacy is that you have activists like this wearing a uniform. Nothing could be more deleterious to the military than worthless, politically motivated officers like this one.

His purple heart makes him a "hero" not.

He's a gut with arms, a Zero not a hero.
His opening statement was all about me me me and how my family served this country.
He's nothing but a snitch bitch that likes to blab about private matters in public.
I almost laughed when he cried about the president NOT following HIS script the HE wrote.
Who cares,next

He was put in a position that should have gone to a real warrior and that really really pisses me off. The tug of shit!

Every day of these hearings is just another shit show. Glad Jim Jordan and the rest of the Republican on the committee are slapping these idiots.

I read/heard on the radio somewhere today that this asshat doesn't wear a uniform to work. They said that he works in civilian attire and that they were surprised when he showed up in his dress. They said that it was staged for the audience.
When one of them called him Mr. and he corrected him with something like,,,it,s Lt.Col to you---
That told me a lot.

Care to share more on this? On PM if not on here..??
I dont have any solid info on it but my shit smeller.

I remember this story from back in the day.....


The EU is dependent on Russian energy and by EU I mean Germany which Merkel wants the entire thing to be the GDR she grew up in.

The Ukraine is the route through which Russian energy flows or could be the route for bigger energy lines.

Putin makes good money having Europe at his mercy. He laughs that they have surrendered their dependence to the Greta Thunbergs of the world.

The Ukraine was stealing a sizeable portion of Russian product which pissed Putin off to a degree.

Im not sure what the benefit to the US would be getting involved in this but it occured under an Admin committed to globalism.

Obammy likely pressured by Soros wasn't going to allow an Oban run the Ukraine. Eastern Europe spent too much time under domination and they are pretty protective of their nationalism.

There is a lot of BS going on in the Ukraine. Maiden may have started grass roots, I doubt so, but it became a wedge for some geopolitical goal.

IMO Vindmans fluency in Russian and Ukrainian is the reason he was assigned to embassy postings. Not for his military bearing and skills

And now Vindeman is whining that his Officers Career is all but over because people don’t take him seriously.

Lwavenworth anyone? They put our seals, Green Berets and Airborne officers in jail for doing their jobs in the sandbox....

But this light colonel is trying to participate in a coup and he Expects applause and an Eagle?

He deserves court martial for conduct unbecoming at minimum... high treason not being out of the realm...

Benedict Arnold provided great service to the Continental Army until he didnt.
Benedict Arnold The Traitor was created... from Benedict Arnold The Patriot...

Created by Ethan Allen who stole the credit for Ticonderoga.

And, more importantly, by "Granny" Gates who completely undercut Arnolds performance at Saratoga.

This was followed by nasty rumor-spreading and attacks by other generals when Arnold, crippled by his leg wound at Saratoga, was accused of graft as military governor of, I think, Philadelphia.

If his wounds at Saratoga had killed him... Arnold would have been remembered as the greatest hero of the Revolution.

But jealous and petty attacks by inferior officers turned Arnold into the traitor that he will be remembered as.

No doubt, he did turn. He did try and sell out West Point to the British and he was an abject and absolute traitor. But he was turned into one by worthless peers... Maybe pudgy self-serving ones who were legends in their own minds. And who could not stand the idea of a 'real' hero getting credit for what the POG's thought they deserved. For sitting in tents and waving their swagger sticks.

Cheers,

Sirhr
