“Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman self-nailed himself to his cross on Tuesday at the impeachment hearings- reminds me of a disgruntled former employee- oh, boohoo” by Chef Olaf Bologolo
FALL SESSION 2019
BLOG POST #3,308 AT THE AICP-END
350 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
In the end, Trump lovers will continue loving Trump and Trump haters will continue hating Trump leaving a small group in the middle to determine the course forward…
Century City, CA 90067, 11-21-2019 Thursday: Did you know the Democrat candidates had a debate last night? Big deal, nothing to discuss there. It was as exciting as was the impeachment hearings put on by Little Adam Schiff, beginning Tuesday. Look, I like a good impeachment hearing like everyone else but what we are seeing (besides being a snooze-fest) is akin to disgruntled employees at an HR meeting bitching about their boss, their NEW boss. Sob, wail, boohoo, snivel, snort, and whine. Geez, I cannot take it, it is driving me batty, especially with that pudgy-faced POS Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. What a loser. Like Chuck Connors in “Branded,”[i] he should be stripped of his uniform, his sword broken, and his butt booted outside the fort.
What I gather from watching this farce when I arrive home at night (thank God for DVR’s, folks), I discover that I do not need any sleep enhancements, no Nyquil®, no brandy, or no medical marijuana. The hearings are so boring that within 30 minutes, I am snoozing like a log, deep in sleep, it reminds me of how we hold employee reviews or listen to their complaints. Boring stuff to be sure but stuff the law requires us to undergo in order to mete out pay raises or address fellow employee complaints or infractions of the rules.
Lt. Col. Vindman to me is pretentious, a sniveler, and a disaster. Right from the very beginning of his opening statement, he sought to self-nail himself to the cross. He told his mommy and daddy in his opening remarks not to worry because he was going to tell the truth (or whatever stupid stuff he actually said- I’m going by memory here, folks), which sounded a lot like a major bitch-fest by a crybaby.
Everyone bawling and whining about how the president of the United States was sidestepping their ‘talking points,’ about how the president was attempting to chart his own foreign policy course, which, by the way, remains the job of the president to set and then see to it that his underlings carry out his directions.
Lt. Col. Vindman became all huffy and puffy when people did not address him by his title, which to me is laughable because everyone knows the American left despises the U.S. military and does everything to belittle its ranking members and to punish enlisted men and women for anything they deem to be a war crime- since when is killing the enemy a ‘war crime.’ Thank God our president is pardoning military members from lengthy prison sentences for doing their jobs.
That said, we had to suffer through National Security Council hack Vindman, a disgrace to the uniform, as well as a former aide to Vice President Mike Pence, horse-face Jennifer Williams[ii]. Wah-wah-wah, everyone is upset that the president didn’t follow what they claim to be set-in-stone U.S. policy towards Ukraine.
Again, President Trump is the man who sets foreign policy for the nation, not his predecessor, so the Obama foreign policy- as f**ked up as it was- no longer applies, the Trump foreign policy applies and goobers such Lt. Col. Vindman, Ms. Williams, and then former Ukraine special envoy Kurt Volker and former NSC official Tim Morrison are charged with carrying out.
What’s more, the president can appoint someone to be his (or her) special envoy who comes from outside the State Department. He (or she) can do this if they are wary that the people working in the Foreign Service will not carry out their orders or worse, will countermand them to something completely different than the original orders.
Who could blame President Trump dispatching his personal attorney, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani to check or double-check that his desires were getting through? No one, as far as I can tell.
What is disturbing about all of this is that when the Republicans were hammering away at the pudgy little lieutenant-colonel, they discovered a damned important finding, something that immediately set Chairman Adam Schiff off.
It became clear to everyone not sawing logs that Vindman most likely was the source of the whistle-blower’s complaint- the whistleblower being one Eric Ciaramella, CIA officer assigned to the White House- which Mr. Schiff could not permit to come out as he still maintains he has NO clue as to whom the whistleblower is.
For a minute there, we thought we were going to see Schiff’s pathetic set of balls go splat on a tree stump when the big sledgehammer came down atop them with the force of the American people. As nasty and as gnarly as that would be, millions of Americans immediately woke up and took note because we almost had the lying POS Schiff on the spot.
Of course, Congressman Schiff knows the identity of the whistle-blower as the ‘whistleblower’ ran to his staffers upon hearing the dirty laundry that Lt. Col. Vindman took him, so upset and so shocked by what he heard second-third-or-fourth-hand from the ‘notorious phone call’ as I think Schiff has labeled it.
A bright spot occurred later in the day when Congressman Mike Turner, R-OH, took to Adam Schiff via Ambassador Volker because someone needed to pummel this smug sleazebag upside the head. All of these ‘lifers’ in federal government employ are denizens of the detestable swamp, the one the 45th president is working day and night to drain.
In the end, NOTHING is going to change for most Americans. Trump lovers will continue loving him and Trump haters will continue hating him. The folks in the middle, however, will begin moving one way or the other and I suspect many will move into the ‘lovers camp’ and away from that of the ‘haters.’
Too much money has been spent on a wild goose chase as has time, precious time, something we will never get back. I get it, Schiff[iii] detests President Trump. Ah, well, pull up your big-boy pants and Schiff, shit or get the hell off the pot. Enough!
Rejoin me tomorrow for more exciting commentary on this and other topics like possibly…the debate. Then again, we might have to smoke a bowl or two of crack (JUST KIDDING!) to be able to review that ship of fools. See you in 24 hours.
