Liz Cheney and her support of Alexander Vindman

How do these foreigners rise to such high places? Just asking.

Liz Cheney never met a war she didn’t like. And why not. She is your classic Neo-Con. She warns us not to question Vindman who testified.  Let’s look back at part of a post from October 29, 2019 knowing what we know now about Vindman and comment on what we know now. Included a part of a CNN clip.

Shouting match erupts in Vindman deposition as Democrats …

 Democrats and Republicans got into a shouting match behind closed doors on Tuesday while interviewing a witness in the impeachment investigation, with Democrats accusing Republicans of trying to out the anonymous whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry,

No doubt one of her buddies along with Jack Keene who is on Fox regularly. The connection?

Liz Cheney Rips Fellow Republicans For Attacking Impeachment Witness’ Patriotism

Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, is set to testify in the impeachment inquiry against Trump.

Really? How do these foreigners rise to such high places? Just asking.

We all have an affinity to our homeland where we came from,” former Republican Rep. Sean Duffy told CNN, adding, “He has an affinity, I think, for the Ukraine. He speaks Ukrainian. He came from the country and he wants to make sure they’re safe and free.” When asked by CNN host John Berman if he thought Vindman was looking out for America first, Duffy refused to say yes.

Shifty Schiff’s Star Tuesday Witness, Alexander Vindman, Is Connected to Obama’s Russian Ambassador…

Yesterday Colonel Alexander Vindman was the witness in Adam Schiff’s basement chamber of secrets.  No doubt he brought with him to the Capital tricks and not treats. During questioning on Tuesday…

thegatewaypundit.com

We learn now that Ukraine wanted Vidman to be their Minister of Defense.. three times they asked him.. Cozy..

Our stalwart Mustang makes  this observation:

LtCol Alexander Vindman, who works as an “area expert” on the NSC Staff in matter pertaining to Russia and Ukraine, has a twin-brother, who is LtCol Yevgeny Vindman who is also assigned to the NSC Staff as a lawyer responsible for “ethnical complaints.”   

 

So when Alexander testified that he took his concerns about the Trump phone call to the NSC Staff legal department, he actually took the complaint to his twin brother whose job it is to address ethical complaints.

 

Honestly, if this doesn’t sound like a conspiracy, then I don’t know what does.

 

Found information on Wikipedia.
Vindman is married. His identical twin brother, Yevgeny S. Vindman, is an Army lieutenant colonel and JAG Officer who is assigned as an attorney on the National Security Council staff handling ethics issues.[3][22] Vindman has an older brother, Leonid Vindman, who was also commissioned as an officer in the Army.[22]
Just a comment. In the hearing he stated his so called war injuries were so great he went back to work the next day.

The Institute for the Study of War.

Just what is the  Institute for the Study of War? Unfortunately,  much of their original information disappeared from their website. Thanking various military contractors for hosting dinners, and of course Liz Cheney’s name and picture are no longer prominently displayed. (Information is from an old post done back in 2013.)

We are on the front lines of military thinking.

Our Mission

“The Institute for the Study of War advances an informed understanding of military affairs through reliable research, trusted analysis, and innovative education. We are committed to improving the nation’s ability to execute military operations and respond to emerging threats in order to achieve U.S. strategic objectives. ISW is a non-partisan, non-profit, public policy research organization.”

 

According to 2011 tax documents, directors included: Elizabeth Cheney, daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney and founder of the right-wing advocacy group Keep America SafeWilliam Kristol, editor of the neoconservative flagship magazine the Weekly StandardJack Keane, a retired four-star general who coauthored with Frederick Kagan of the American Enterprise Institute “Choosing Victory,” a 2007 study that served as a blueprint for the so-called “surge” in Iraq; Dennis Showalter, a military historian; Hal Hirsch; Bill Roberti; and Kim Kagan.

According to its 2011 Form 990, ISW had operating expenses of just under $1.9 million that year, up from $1.57 in 2010.

A non-exhaustive Right Web investigation of Form 990 U.S. tax records revealed nearly $700,000 in donations from charitable foundations during 2007-2009.

ISW has increasingly drawn support from military contractors with stakes in the issues that the institute studies.

“According to ISW’s last annual report,” noted Consortium News in December 2012, “its original supporters were mostly right-wing foundations, such as the Smith-Richardson Foundation and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, but it now is backed by national security contractors, including major ones like Raytheon, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman and CACI, as well as lesser-known firms such as DynCorp International, which provides training for Afghan police, and Palantir, a technology company founded with the backing of the CIA’s venture-capital arm, In-Q-Tel. Palantir supplies software to U.S. military intelligence in Afghanistan.”[18]

Donations included nearly $180,000 from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a premier neoconservative advocacy group, as well as $60,000 from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, a right-wing foundation that has funded other militarist outfits like the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and Daniel Pipes’ Middle East Forum, earning it a spot among the top funders of the anti-Islamic discourse in the United States according to a 2011 report by the Center for American Progress. The Marcus Foundation, which has also supported MEMRI, contributed another $250,000 to ISW during this period. (For a full list of Right Web’s findings, click here.)

Weissmann the ‘the pit bull’ joins NBC MSNBC to opine on impeachment

 

Andrew Weissmann the so called “pit bull” of the Mueller team has found his way over to the NBC and MSNBC team to opine on the impeachment of our President. Here is the nub of the “offense” that is worthy of impeachment that echos all of last week’s testimony.

WEISSMANN: I think they helped answer the question of, why should the American public care? And the witnesses talked about how if it is true what the Democrats are claiming, what the president is doing is completely antithetical to the bipartisan view that the rule of law should apply in this country and across the world.

They saw an unofficial policy being pushed by the president and Giuliani to bring a bogus investigation against a political opponent. That’s the kind of thing that we fight against in other countries.

I might ask who is the “they” that decides “the official policy?” Of course, the deep state and not those elected by the American people. Mr. Weissmann is correct we do fight this in other countries.

Note to MSNBC. To be completely honest you would have allowed the answers from the witnesses as opposed to the premises.

Top Prosecutor On Impeachment Case: Trump Was ‘Cheating’ To Win Re-election | MSNBC

 

 

 

Excerpts via Daily Caller

“I would have spent less time about what it meant for Ukraine and sort of American policy and a little bit more on the fact that what the president … was doing was cheating on our election,” Weissmann told MSNBC’s Ari Melber.

Melber ended his interview with Weissmann with a touching send-off.

“In all candor and sincerity, as an attorney, I can say a lot of attorneys view you as a legend,” the host said.

Weissmann joins a stable of MSNBC analysts that includes former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI assistant director for Frank Figliuzzi, and Malcolm Nance, a former intelligence officer who has pushed the now-debunked conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia during the 2016 election.

 

Such brilliance. I can’t imagine how this “legend” managed to waste millions and found nothing and yet continues to interfere in the election of a President by the electorate and not the deep state.

Bloomberg staff apologizes for his crude remarks about women

 

As the impeachment marches on, Bloomberg’s staff took time out to be “woke.” Isn’t fair fair? This should finish Bloomberg before he gets started with today’s unwritten rules.Of course Bloomberg leaves it for his staff to apologize. But for a New York Jew looks like you just claim that they are simply “borscht belt jokes.” I find it interesting that the Times choses now to do this little reveal.

Michael Bloomberg’s campaign team started cleaning up after its candidate before he has officially entered the 2020 presidential race.

A spokesperson from Bloomberg’s campaign issued an apology after a report from the New York Times revealed the former New York City mayor had made many demeaning comments about women.

One remark attributed to Mr. Bloomberg went like this: “If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of to Bloomingdale’s.” Another line, purportedly Mr. Bloomberg’s sales pitch for his eponymous computer terminal, said the machine will “do everything,” including oral sex, although a cruder term was used.

“I guess,” Mr. Bloomberg was quoted as saying, “that puts a lot of you girls out of business.”

These accusations had surfaced before, but Bloomberg brushed them off as “borscht belt jokes.” His campaign, however, took a softer approach and apologized for the remarks.

Stu Loeser, a spokesman for Bloomberg and his former press secretary, said, “Mike has come to see that some of what he has said is disrespectful and wrong. He believes his words have not always aligned with his values and the way he has led his life.”

Joe Biden you forget your role in the Ukraine

 

Let’s have a refresher on just what the Dems and in particular Biden and Obama did to help out Ukraine with military aid during their tenure. In fact it was zip.

Why didn’t the United States provide it when Biden was the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine? But of course no one is asking Biden about it.

For Biden to now attack Trump for a temporary delay in a new round of lethal military aid reeks of hypocrisy.

It was on Biden’s watch that the United States refused to deliver military aid at all. Yet the same vice president who sat impassively while Ukraine’s president begged for weapons now dares to cite the Russian threat to Ukraine in castigating Trump?

So what did the Obama administration give Ukraine? Instead of rocket-propelled grenades, we provided food rations. As one frustrated former Pentagon official put it at the time, “What kind of message does that send anyway?”

Michael Bloomberg the so-called centrist?

 

The MSM was quick to herald the news that there was an excellent chance Michael Bloomberg was going to put his hat in the ring. Yes, someone more centrist. He looked at the field and so he “had a lane.” Lane? What lane. He is as wacko left as the rest of them. A couple of tweets out there really tells us all we need to know. Let’s look at China and guns as a starting point. Rest easy folks.

 

The Second Amendment and his understanding of guns…. “Give Bambi a chance.” Something like that.

 

Need a refresher on Biden? “China not bad folks.”

Joe Biden, the gift that keeps on giving if the media would only report his positions. Robert Gates spelled it out in his memoir written a few years ago, “I think he (Biden) has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” It looks like Joe is still fumbling along.

 

Yes, all is well in the swamp.

Trump reads aloud whistle blower’s lawyer declaring a coup!

 

Donald Trump Reads Aloud 2017 Tweets from Whistleblower’s Lawyer Declaring a ‘Coup’

It doesn’t get much better than this… throw in Ruddy’s tweet on the newly discovered Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Ukraine Burisma nonsense and we can put this down as a good day. Enjoy!

President Donald Trump kicked off his political rally in Louisiana by reading off tweets declaring a “coup” against the president in January 2017.

 

The Biden smoking gun.

Other than that a good day in the swamp.

Omar tells Sanders supporters, he will ‘fight against western imperialism’

 

Rep. Ilhan Omar says she is excited Sen. Bernie Sanders will “fight against western imperialism.”

“I am beyond honored and excited for a president that will fight against western imperialism and fight for a just world,” Omar said during a Sanders campaign rally in Minneapolis.

 

Omar could only praise comrade Sanders, who spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union. We are to forget the Soviet Union wasn’t on everyone’s bucket list as a travel destination. This at the height of the cold war. That he is even polling a number tells us what has happened to our educational system.

“The fight for human rights is undeniable. And when we recognize injustices of the past and present,” Omar said. “Whether it is genocide against Jewish people, Armenians or Rwandans or Bosnians or Native Americans or more. We realize that that recognition isn’t about punishing our political foes, but leading within a moral obligation.”

Other than that all is well in the swamp.
