      LTC (Retired) Jim Hickman:

      I know LTC Alex Vindman from a Combined US-Russian exercise called Atlas Vision 12 in Grafenwoher, GE. He worked w/the Russian Embassy & I was assigned to the JMTC (Joint Multinational Training Command), w/in USAREUR (US Army Europe). He worked coordination w/the Russian 15th Peacekeeping Brigade, & I was in charge of all Simulations planning, as well as assisting the USAREUR Lead Planner as the Senior Military Planner. The following account of LTC Vindman’s words & actions are completely accurate to the best of my recollection & have been corroborated by others.

      We interacted on several different occasions throughout the planning cycle, but it was during the actual execution of the exercise, that we had an issue relevant to his recent testimony. As stated earlier, Atlas Vision 12 was conducted at JMTC in the VBS2 (Virtual Battle Simulations 2) Classrooms for Simulation. Vindman, who was a Major at the time, was sitting in one of the classrooms talking to the US & Russian Soldiers, as well as the young Officers & GS Employees about America, Russia, & Obama. He was apologetic of American culture, laughed about Americans not being educated or worldly, & really talked up Obama & globalism to the point of uncomfortable.

      He would speak w/the Russian Soldiers & laugh as if at the expense of the US personnel. It was so uncomfortable & unprofessional, one of the GS employees came & told me everything above. I walked over & sat w/in earshot of Vindman, & sure enough, all was confirmed. One comment truly struck me as odd, & it was w/respect to American’s falsely thinking they’re exceptional, when he said, “He [Obama] is working on that now.” And he said it w/a snide ‘I know a secret’ look on his face. I honestly don’t know what it meant, it just sounded like an odd thing to say.

      Regardless, after hearing him bash America a few times in front of subordinates, Russians, & GS Employees, as well as, hearing an earful about globalization, Obama’s plan, etc…I’d had enough. I tapped him on the shoulder & asked him to step outside. At that point I verbally reprimanded him for his actions, & I’ll leave it at that, so as not to be unprofessional myself.

      The bottom-line is LTC Vindman was a partisan Democrat at least as far back as 2012. So much so, junior officers & soldiers felt uncomfortable around him. This is not your professional, field-grade officer, who has the character & integrity to do the right thing. Do not let the uniform fool you…he is a political activist in uniform. I pray our nation will drop this hate, vitriol & division, & unite as our founding fathers intended!

      I want this to stop and for the responsible parties to be censured. Why are the House Democrats so obedient to their masters? How can anyone who is so privileged as to sit on that Committee actually sit there, day after day, and watch this, and merely nod their heads agreeably and say nothing? 😵

        One good assumption that has been put forward about the participation of the IC and especially the FBI in the Clinton email affair is that the people instrumental to covering up and clearing Hillary thought she would be president.

        Here we are again. The members of the coup cult are eagerly working toward throwing Donald Trump out of office. If PDJT goes and Pence stays, they will be dealing with a highly weakened new president. However, the Left probably would find a way to toss Pence simultaneously or pressure a resignation. His pro-life position is untenable to them. Nancy is their boss now. She would be the president then.

        Look at Strzok and Page at the FBI then compare with Schiff and Swalwell in the Intel committee.

        Hillary. Nancy. Same calculus.

        Mike: being “so obedient to their masters” is a condition without which a dem politician can never make it to the higher echelons of the corrupt dem club. That is quite evident in the present Pelosi/Schiff/Nadler treasonous undertaking.

        Meantime, loyal repubs are prevented from getting answers to their questions when the tyrannical dems ask “witnesses” not to answer and move the goal posts o a daily basis.

        Constant abuse of laws and authoritarian measures will end up destroying the dem-communist part as numerous movements whose names end in “exit” will rise and fight back.

Sort of like a feudal kingdom where the lords and kings can do whatever they please and the serfs and peasants can do NOTHING about it. Mark my words Treeprs, Barr, Durham, Horowitz and the guy out in Utah who hasn’t been heard from since he was appointed are WAITING to see if Schiff can take down POTUS before they release anything that might be detrimental to THEIR career/safety/whatever.

        Absolutely doesn’t matter. Here’s the takeaway:

        “Can’t beat the Left when there’s leftist lite operatives in your ranks.
        Any proper right wing movement needs a thorough purge of its weakest links.”

        Here’s highly relevant quote:

        “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

          The simple majority vote for disqualification from holding future fed office is disconcerting, but I think even the RINOs know that the Senate convicting Trump wouldl mean the end of the “Republican” party. At that point, -I- will simply no longer bother to vote since it would have by then become painfully obvious that it doesn’t matter what I want and I’ll simply sit back with popcorn to watch the well-deserved results for the idiocracy in this country. An idiocracy deserves what it gets.

          https://www.sandersinstitute.com/blog/impeachment-and-removal

          “Under the Constitution, the penalty for conviction on an impeachable offense is limited to either removal from office, or removal and prohibition against holding any future offices of “honor, Trust or Profit under the United States.” Although removal from office would appear to flow automatically from conviction on an article of impeachment, a separate vote is necessary should the Senate deem it appropriate to disqualify the individual convicted from holding future federal offices of public trust. Approval of such a measure requires only the support of a simple majority.”

      There Plan B has long since been to make PDJT not eligible to run for re-election. This was tipped off a ways back. They know they can’t beat him.

      If they saddle him with “impeachment”, even if he refuses to resign/be removed… he can’t seek re-election in 2020. Do NOT trust the Republicans or RINOS in the Senate to hold the line!! ($UNIparty$)

      If Repubs were serious, this whole shitshow would’ve been SHUT DOWN by now. And all the conspiring , seditious crooks trying to overthrow the President, would’ve been hauled away into jail, currently awaiting trials.

      Where the heck is Barr!? He should have the President’s back! Not because he “serves at the pleasure of”, but because it’s the RIGHT & LAWFUL thing to do! That this is an ongoing GROSS VIOLATION of our Constitution, & a travesty of Justice & Due Process. He is supposed to uphold the Rule of Law- regardless of political ties!

        Sad. This may be tempting to many (R).

        With the (D) field as bad as it is, many (R) may be thinking they can easily win the presidency if they get Trump out of there by impeachment.

        Now, I throw this out there.

        Some have said (D) has a candidate secretly waiting in the wings.

        Does (R) have a secret candidate waiting in the wings?

        Have various (R) senators been whispering, “hey, I think Trump is safe from the Left, but suppose he did get impeached – who would we run for Prez? Can’t be too hard to win this time around, looking at the (D) field? Who would you say could run?”

        Or, maybe a name is getting thrown around right now. Romney? Who else? Pence?

        Wrong. Even if the Senate convicts…and they won’t….unless they also specifically add to the conviction a prohibition from being able to run again, Trump could.

        But simple Impeachment by the House does NOT prevent Trump from running for re-election.

          Exactly why this is worth repeating…

          What they failed to calculate in their little plans to harass & dehumanize Conservatives/P. Trump-Supporters– b/c the Left NEVER think shizit through… they actually just exposed & dehumanized themselves.

          They have already pushed it beyond any reason! And any such unlawful, bogus IMPEACHMENT, will be the bridge gone TOO far. There are MILLIONS full of *cold-anger* (and it’s been simmering at a slow boil for YEARS, & ready to boil over). There are also many who’ve reached a point, they feel they’ve NOTHING/ or anything substantial to lose.

          I was at a recent Conservative gathering [somewhere along the Gulf Coast], curious to gauge the sentiment. It was organized by a group of woman, that’d likely be labeled by the Left as “soccer mom’s”. While there was a volunteer Motorcycle Crew providing security. (Note: the crossing of a supposed lifestyle divide)

          Let me tell you, the average citizen UNDERSTANDS exactly what’s happening. They’ve also had enough, & we’ve reached a brink– where something needs to give. They are PISSED– & not shy about expressing it!

          They KNOW the MSM LIES, & is the ENEMY of the People. They know CONgress is CORRUPT, & our Gov leaves much to be desired. They realize PDJT is under constant attack. They may not know all the intricate details, or all the names involved… but they know enough to see it as a very real threat.

          I really don’t think the Dems want to test the response they’ll receive. And We the People not only have a Constitutional RIGHT to address it, but an OBLIGATION to do something about it!

          The Dems can continue to believe their FAKE POLLS, STUFFED BALLOT BOX (absentee ballots) elections, & online PAID SHILLS & Bots– means they have lots of support. But the reality is, their guys can’t even fill a gymnasium! Even by calling in favors, & offering payments.
          Meanwhile, PDJT is filling Stadiums, with 10,000’s in overflow just outside. Let that be an eye-opener that it should be, “woke” folks.

          And no, to the moron [celebrities]– PDJT is not paying actors to show-up. Do the Math (the Real kind)… after 4 YEARS of getting 10’s of THOUSANDS attending each & every time -x- [?countless?] rallies nationwide -x- fake $ amount per person = 🙄Seriously?? The man would eventually go broke were this true! So, It just sounds ignorant for anyone to suggest! Maybe try turning off the F/CNN (fake news network)!

          So were PDJT to ever make the call, or sound the alarm in distress… you best BELIEVE there will be MILLIONS of men, women, & children who will answer that call!

          Ok, rant off!

I think for now they’re hoping the endless wave of negativity they’re rolling against him will effect gray-area and less dedicated voters. If Trump’s elected again I think all stops will be pulled out as they fear a wave of indictments will roll over them and it’s do or die.

    Time to go nuclear…invite the president of Ukraine for an Oval Office meeting and request he be given opportunity to make an address to a Joint Session of Congress. Congress accepts, he can tell them first hand there was no quid pro quo. Congress does not accept, underscores that they are not interested in the truth. Hell, I’d put the offer to make the address up for votes in the House and Senate—let them all show right now on which side of the fence they sit.

    Here is Byron York with another transcript excerpt that shows how boxed in the Republicans are in these interviews.

    This is a coup with quite a number of participants aligned to get Donald Trump out of office. There are networks that are the context for behavior. The coup cult does not intend to allow those networks and the people involved to be revealed.

      The good part of this is that if they carry this same arrogance into open public hearings, the entire country will see it for what it is. The stench of this fraudulent hoax will be hard to contain once the Nation can finally see it playing out before their eyes.

      Which is why, unlike the Nixon hearings they are so desperately trying to recreate, they will never show these hearings live or in full as in the 1970s. They are forced to hide it behind secret hearings, or will reduce it to sound bites competing with other headlines at the top of the hour. That will further weaken their import and impact to the American people. It is a losing model for them either way.

      That is why I remain supremely confident that in the end, it is going nowhere. There is simply no ‘there’ there. This ‘impeachment’ battle, like the Russian hoax, is PDJT’s to lose. And he continues to win it. So let them impeach in the House. It will be fun to watch them lose the House when they do.

            I believe the impeachment theater will play out in the glaring light while the media and coup plotters wriggle against the tightening grip of their masters, the deep-pocketed and hugely powerful interests presently on the losing end of President Trump’s policies.

            Then, after all their on-stage thrashing and posturing wind down to a wimper, the lights and cameras will go away and the American people will be left with a sense of indifference, at best, with disgust being more likely, and then the indictments will begin in earnest.

            This is when the corrective changes of sudden and relentless reform will begin to bite the deepest and the losing denizens will have to release their grip or be hauled to the surface and exposed.

    o Evo Morales resigned as president of Bolivia after 14 years
    o He did so after being pressured by the military to give up power
    o He was the last remaining leader of a ‘pink tide’ that swept Latin America
    o The OAS determined there were ‘clear manipulations’ in his reelection

      Well he won a dubious election after changing the constitution so that he could run again. People were angry and started to protest. He called for the police to stop the protesters and they refused. He then called on the army to do the same and they also refused and asked him to step down, which he did.
      On the surface he has done a pretty impressive job as regards the economy and easing poverty. Actually though it was all achieved by borrowing money from China who will be gobbling up their assets and natural resources once things turn sour. Socialism only works while you have access to other peoples money.
      That’s my take on it for what it’s worth.

      Omar is despicable! Family friends have arrived here from Santa Cruz, Bolivia. They have all along telling us the terrible oppression, cruelty, cocaine-dealing and money grabbing that Evo Morales has done. FINALLY, a nonpolitical man, Camacho, with God’s anointing, rose up during the fraudulent elections on October 20 and has led the protests to oust this Socialist-Dictator Evo Morales from Office. This fearless 40-year-old has organized the entire protest in a well-though-out fashion to shut down the country from operating and thereby crippling Evo Morales…..businesses, banks and government completely closed since October 20th.. They allow the Grocery Stores and the trucks carrying the products to operate from 7am until Noon each day so everyone can buy food. Cars are banned from operating and only bicycles and scooters can run. There are (benign) checkpoints stopping everyone and the Police were first to have sided with the people/protesters, vowing that not one bullet would be aimed at any civilian. The Military was next and this was Evo Morales’ downfall. Last week, 7 Brinks Trucks were in front of his Prudential Palace as he raped the country of Millions of dollars.

      Camacho, the Protest Organizer and brains/power of this operation, who has no political aspirations, went before the people of Bolivia in the first days and stated his case; he begged the people for their patience and cooperation and sacrifices in ousting the psychotic socialist dictator Evo Morales out of office. ALSO, what I consider to be the MOST important aspect of the entire success of this coup is that Camacho has led up to almost 2 MILLION people in the streets every single night at 7:00pm to KNEEL in the massively crowded streets and PRAY before God to help them in this battle to put the Bible and God back in the Country that the Dictator, Evo Morales, had removed! The drone pictures are ASTONISHING and beyond emotional seeing the pictures of almost 2 MILLION people kneeling and praying in the streets. This is of Biblical proportions and there is no way that God could ignore their pleading to Him. Absolutely incredible!!

      Evo is rumored to have left the country without signing the Official Resignation letter. Seems their Socialist/Communist regime is almost OVER! Hallelujah!! I’m sure the people of Venezuela must watch this and cry for their country and their failed attempt to oust their dictator Maduro! I think in Bolivia’s case, because they turned to the Almighty God, He heard their pleas. In most cases, 14 years is rather fast for an entire population, even the indigenous people from where Evo Morales came, to get rid of a communist dictator. Happy they came to their senses so quickly.

          Thanks for this article, Sherri! He did verbally “resign,” but he has refused to sign the legal papers of resignation and apparently, this is a crucial thing he needs to do. The people of Bolivia have gone 20 days without paychecks or ability to retrieve their money. Nobody has worked. The Protest Organizers have provided massive meals and food banks for those who were living from paycheck to paycheck and had no money to buy groceries in the allotted Grocery Store 7am to noon openings.

          I can’t stand how these articles try to portray Evo Morales as some kind of “benign” dictator. The people were completely oppressed. The media, like here, was very leftist and any popularity vote of confidence he ever had came from the overwhelming percentage of indigenous people, of which Evo Morales is one, who finally organized themselves and swept him into power due to their sheer numbers, (too bad they don’t have our Electoral College saviors!), thinking he would help them (i.e. OBlunder and the African Americans first thinking he was going to pay their rent, phone and electric bills!!) That the majority of the once-fanatically loyal Indigenous counties/cities have now turned against Evo Morales is a HUGE defeat for him, and is yet another factor of how he is being brought down.

    Democrats claim that Biden’s threat to withhold a loan guarantee was because he was concerned about corruption.

    Trump briefly withheld military aid because he was concerned about corruption.

    What’s the difference? On the surface, none. So why the hysteria?

    In Biden’s case there is the appearance of a conflict of interest because his son was a director of a company being investigated. Democrats claim Trump asked about this investigation only because of partisan reasons. This is belied by the fact of Biden’s apparent conflict of interest, which is a legitimate subject for investigation.

    In Trump’s case there is no appearance of a conflict of interest except for Democrat’s claimed hypothetical future Biden candidacy, which because he is of an opposing party immunizes him from any investigation.

    On one hand there is an actual appearance of a conflict of interest, and on the other a hypothetical future conflict of interest.

    The only investigation being done because of partisan reasons is the Democrat’s impeachment charade. A charade of illicit hearings and corrupt processes.

Dershowitz just said he is being accused by “Sleezy scummy lawyers” or something to that affect, to which Varney pushed back on the language he used but in reality he is being accused by a victim with documentation to prove her claims. Read what she said about Dershowitz – in my view, he is disgusting, his cozying up to the MAGA movement is a self preservation fraud, and that interview he just gave on Fox was a disgrace. I HAVE YET TO SEE ANY EPSTEIN AND DERSHOWITZ ACCUSER GIVEN SUCH AIR TIME, LET ALONE TREATED WITH SUCH KITTY GLOVES. These scum are all connected.
