I Want To Hear From Trump Supporters!

Do you support the retaliation against Lt. Colonel Vindman, a decorated soldier who legally obeyed a subpoena for his testimony and told, under oath, his version under of the events of the phone call between Trump and President Zelensky of Ukraine?

WATCH: Alexander Vindman’s full opening statement | Trump impeachment hearings

After rewatching the nine minute opening statement by Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman, I am struck by the courage and patriotism of this man who was fired for his Congressional testimony during the House impeachment proceedings. I want to hear from Trump supporters how you feel about Trump’s obvious, vindictive retaliation against Vindman’s testimony in front of Congress, the firing this highly decorated soldier.  

When I say highly decorated soldier, I mean exactly that. Vindman’s awards and decorations include the Purple Heart, Defense Meritorious Service Medal with bronze oak leaf clu er (2nd award), Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Korea Defense Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Valorous Unit Award, Navy Unit Commendation, National Intelligence Meritorious Unit Citation, and Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation. He is a reciipient of the Combat Infantryman Badge, Expert Infantryman Badge, Ranger Tab, Basic Parachutist Badge, the Presidential Service Badge and Joint Chiefs of Staff Identification Badge.

I highlight these statements from the video of Lt. Colonel Vindman’s opening statements :

“Next month will mark 40 years since my family arrived in the United States as refugees. When my father was 47 years old he left behind his entire life and the only home he had ever known to start over in the United States so that his three sons could have better, safer lives. His courageous decision inspired a deep sense of gratitude in my brothers and myself and instilled in us a sense of duty and service. All three of us have served or are currently serving in the military. Our collective military service is a special part of our family’s story in America.

”I also recognize that my simple act of appearing here today, just like the courage of my colleagues who have also truthfully testified before this Committee, would not be tolerated in many places around the world. In Russia, my act of expressing my concerns to the chain of command in an official and private channel would have severe personal and professional repercussions and offering public testimony involving the President would surely cost me my life. I am grateful for my father’s brave act of hope 40 years ago and for the privilege of being an American citizen and public servant, where I can live free of fear for mine and my family’s safety.

”Dad, my sitting here today, in the US Capitol talking to our elected officials is proof that you made the right decision forty years ago to leave the Soviet Union and come here to United State of America in search of a better life for our family. Do not worry, I will be fine for telling the truth. Thank you again for your consideration, and I would be happy to answer your questions:”

Silence is not acceptable – how do you feel, Trump supporters?  Do you support the firing, or does it outrage you as much as it does me?  Do you feel safer today not having Lt. Colonel Vindman watching your back against Russia? Silence is not acceptable, speak up.  I want to hear your opinion.

  1. Yes, I support President Trump’s action to fire the Vindman brothers, holdovers from the Obama administration, who were appointed, not voted, to their positions on the National Security Council. It is clear that Vindman conspired with Eric Ciarmella, the unnamed whistleblower, and several other Obama-Biden holdovers to scheme to come up with a Ukraine plot to impeach Trump. Trump should have cleaned house several years ago and appointed vetted candidates who he could trust to the critical National Security Council. The ongoing investigations by Attorney General Barr and Senator Lindsay Graham will prove the depth and extent of the conspiracy to remove Trump from the office that he was duly elected to.

    And while I’m at it, when will you and your fellow Jews finally recognize what Trump has done in support of Israel and the horrible anti-Semitic acts and hate speech including Democrat elected US congresswomen and men! Why aren’t you outraged about those things and show it in your writings. As I previously stated, Trump has done more for Israel and the Jewish people than just about all previous presidents combined going back to Eisenhower. Trump’s popularity in Israel is incredible. You should talk to some of your friends there if you don’t believe it!

    And finally, I bet that you & Eliot and your blog readership enjoy looking at the balances of your brokerage, IRA and 401K accounts. That appreciation never occurred under Obama and would absolutely never occurred under a Hillary administration. When are you and your fellow Dems going to wake up!

  2. NOTHING about this administration is acceptable. I cannot even accept that a person like the man who is our president right now is acceptable in the White House. And what is also unacceptable is that WE THE PEOPLE don not have a say in any of this right now……at least not until election day. So we have to vote this horrible person OUT AND THEN LOCK HIM UP. He is a dangerous person. Of course what he did to Lt. Col. Vindman is not acceptable…….but this president seems to have the power to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants, however he wants!!!!!! Be scared people for the future of our children and grandchildren. This is how Hitler started……right now Trump has so much freedom to do whatever he wants to do… And we have to depend on the Senate to do the right things for WE THE PEOPLE….but the republicans are scared to death of Trump……they are afraid that the same thing will happen to them and they will be walked out of the house…..cowards!!!!! I don’t think any Democrat believes that what Trump did to Lt. Col. Vindman is acceptable……remember how many other good people that were assisting him he threw out of the White House. Having to even have this discussion is unacceptable….but thank you Lois for giving THE PEOPLE a platform to vent……in order to save the U.S. we have to vote Trump OUT!!!!
