Lt. Col. Alex Vindman To Be Removed From National Security Council

Published

on

Lt. Col. Alex Vindman, a key witness in the impeachment trial against President Trump, just received some bad news for his role in the attempted coup by Democratic officials working within the government to remove the president from office.

Vindman will be removed from the National Security Council as early as Friday according to new reports.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Vindman’s report to the White House counsel of Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during which the president pressed for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, is one of two accounts that led to the president’s impeachment in the House. The second alarm was raised by a whistleblower, believed to be Eric Ciaramella, a CIA analyst who oversaw the NSC’s Ukraine portfolio under President Barack Obama and briefly under Trump. A partial transcript of the phone call was later shared by the White House.

Testifying in November, Vindman said the president used “inappropriate” pressure on Zelensky. The move to oust Vindman is said to have been under consideration since “at least last week,” Bloomberg reports.

The next position that Vindman is likely to hold will be at the Pentagon where he will sit under Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who stated last summer that Vindman wouldn’t be facing any sort of punishment for his actions.

Despite playing such a significant role in the impeachment trial, Vindman is lucky to be getting off with only a slap on the wrist, so this is an opportunity he better not squander. Another one may not come along the next time.

Activists Get Ready To Storm DC In Protests Set For Independence Day Weekend

Published

on

Liberals are determined to try and ruin Independence Day celebrations this year in any way they can, such as showing up en masse in Washington, D.C., to hold protests and demonstrations to supposedly end racism or something of that nature. This, of course, is more of the same old thing we’ve been seeing for weeks now across the country in light of the death of George Floyd. Lots of rioting, looting, and burning things, all in the name of ending police brutality. Feel free to roll your eyes now. Rather than celebrate the fact we live in a wonderfully free country with the best innovation on the planet, these folks would rather stand outside and shout pathetic slogans in an attempt to recapture the faded and completely unnecessary flames of the 1960s Civil Rights movement. I say unnecessary because the Civil Rights movement succeeded. There’s no more systemic racism, no matter how hard folks try to craft a narrative and say there is. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Activists in the most high profile of these events plan to protest the Emancipation Memorial in Lincoln Park. The memorial, which leaders of the local collective the Freedom Neighborhood claimed they would topple last week, has become a subject of national interest, with many people making a case both for and against the statue. Glenn Foster, the leader of the Freedom Neighborhood, has promoted multiple protests against the memorial set for the days surrounding the July 4 weekend. In some of his material, he celebrated the fact that on Tuesday the Boston Arts Commission voted to remove an identical copy of the statue, which depicts President Abraham Lincoln freeing the slave Archer Alexander, from public display. The movement has received support from D.C. public officials. Shadow Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton on…

Nike Yanks Redskins Merch From Website As Team Sponsors Demand Name Change

Published

The PC police are at it again, folks. With the racial tensions in America reaching new heights in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers, those who are obsessed with finding racism under every rock and around every corner have once again, for the umpteenth time, set their sights on the Washington Redskins professional football team. Nike, the world’s most popular shoe and sports merchandises brand, has pulled all products related to the Redskins team as sponsors for the Redskins demand that the team change its name to something a little less offensive. Good grief. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Searches for Washington Redskins apparel on Nike’s website yielded no results Thursday night, the day after 87 investment firms sent letters to three Redskins sponsors, Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo, urging them to end their relationships with the team if it did not change its name, according to Fox Business. “In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that has focused the world’s attention on centuries of systemic racism, we are witnessing a fresh outpouring of opposition to the team name,” the firms said to Nike in the letter. “Therefore, it is time for Nike to meet the magnitude of this moment, to make their opposition to the racist team name clear, and to take tangible and meaningful steps to exert pressure on the team to cease using it.” FedEx specifically holds the naming rights to the team’s home stadium, and the company CEO holds a minority ownership in the franchise. https://twitter.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1278872483605733377 Owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been hit time and time again over his choice to keep the name of the team the same, as folks on the left claim it’s offensive to Native Americans. However, Snyder has refused to…
