  1. Trump supporters turn on every Republican, any United States Service member, police officer, doctor, scientist or anyone else who stands up to and calls Trump out on his BS! We don’t have an American president problem…. We have American people who clearly put a man B4 our country problem!

    1. @Scientific Methodologist For one thing, science evolves as knowledge is gained. That is why science is great, and why we respond to it.

    2. @Jesse Watters

      “Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home — but not for housing. They are strong for labor — but they are stronger for restricting labor’s rights. They favor minimum wage — the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all — but they won’t spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine — for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing — but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing — so long as it doesn’t spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”

      On 13 October 1948, President Harry Truman

    3. @Harvel XIV you are a communist. All Democrats are communists. Here is MORE PROOF-
      Remember how Democrats always said Trump was an agent of Russia and Putin?

      Russian President Vladimir Putin says he’d work with Biden; says the Democratic Party now shares links with ‘communism’

      Russian President Vladimir Putin recently compared the Democratic Party’s platform with communism and said the shared values could form the “ideological basis” for developing ties between Russia and the U.S.

      He said the Democrat Party holds values he identifies with as a former member of the Soviet Communist Party for 18 years.
      Putin said, “But some things are worth mentioning. First, the Democratic Party is traditionally closer to the so-called liberal values, closer to Social Democratic ideas, if compared to Europe. And it was from the Social Democratic environment that the Communist Party evolved.”

      “I was a member of the Soviet Communist Party for nearly 20 years, or more precisely 18 years,” Putin continued. “I was a rank-and-file member, but it can be said that I believed in the party’s ideas. I still like many of these ‘left-wing’ values.”

      I’ve been telling you the Democrat party is now a ‘communist’ party for a long time. 

  2. It’s a sad time and place in our democracy when an American hero loses his job for doing the right thing and millions of Americans support a corrupt president for doing the wrong thing! Astounding

    1. @DJ Jones again, you were given actual facts you chose to ignore. Can’t help your delusional.

    2. @Edward Rodgerson Syria, Raqqa- in alliance with French & British forces, in response to Syria’s chemical attack on their own people and due to Isis activity in Raqqa. Do you remember the little American boy kidnapped in Raqqa and forced to threaten President Trump? “Civilians” or “terrorists”?

    1. A good way to honor Mr. Vindman is to follow his words . Here , right matters if we make it matter . Only if we participate in our elections and govt. (especially local) can we make sure it matters .

  3. I am a military daughter from a line of veterans who served this Nation since it’s beginnings. This is not Right ! IT CAN NOT STAND!

    1. @American Bulldog Lea’s sentence is incomplete. Is she saying it’s not right what Vindman did? Or is she saying it’s not right what Trump did? Just saying “it’s not right” doesn’t tell me what’s not right…

    2. @D. Boss They denied his promotion too full Colonel because he spoke out and told the truth. I assume the fired guy and his minions were responsible. That was my interpretation of the article…but I could have missed something. She is saying he shouldn’t have been denied his promotion and benefits. Take care.

    3. @American Bulldog Okay, then I am in 100% agreement that it wasn’t right. The comment could easily be interpreted as Vindman “not right” if it was coming from a Trump supporter.

    1. He’s a communist democrat. Just like all democrats are communists
      He’s a communist. Just like all democrats. I can prove it –
      Are today’s Democrats Communists?
      The 1963 communist goals and the Democratic Party of today:

      Many, if not all of these goals, are supported today by YOUR Democratic Party as they often publicly support these goals. Bernie Sanders, Obama, Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, Kamala Harris and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, some even call themselves ‘Democratic socialists.’
      A Fancy word for ‘Communists’

      Nikita Khrushchev once stated, “America will fall without ever firing a shot. You cannot expect Americans to choose communism over capitalism, but you can feed them small doses of socialism until they awaken one day and find they have communism.”

      I would like to share a few with you and hopefully you will decide for yourself which political party supports these ideas –

      For anyone who wants to read all of them, a simple internet search of 1963 communist goals will deliver the list in its entirety.

      7. Grant recognition of Communist China to the United Nations.

      11. Promote the United Nations as the only hope for mankind.
      15. Capture one or both political parties in the USA.
      17. Get control of the schools and use them as transmission belts for communist and socialist propaganda.
      19. Use student riots to foment public protests.
      20. Infiltrate the press.
      21. Gain control of radio, TV and motion pictures.
      25. Break down cultural standards of morality.
      27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible.
      28. Eliminate prayer and any religious expression in schools.

      29. Discredit the American Constitution.
      30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers.
      31. Belittle all forms of American history.
      35. Discredit and dismantle the FBI.
      36. Infiltrate and gain control of unions.
      38. Transfer powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders.
      40. Discredit the family; promote easy divorce.
      41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of their parents.
      42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of American culture and history.

    2. @Jesse Watters Is your definition of communist “people who don’t agree exactly with me”, because otherwise every your entire comment is gibberish.

    3. @Jesse Watters review your “facts” and revise considering they are clearly just your narrow minded opinions. Remember there’s a separation of church and state in this country.

    4. @Satana Yachovit The economy’s relatively slow growth is a clear indicator that the Biden administration’s economic strategy of increasing employment through government welfare and stimulus programs isn’t working as expected-
      There are good reasons to believe that things will get much, much worse over the next year.
      Perhaps the most important signal is that ‘Biden inflation’ has continued to drive up consumer prices.

      Bidens Inflation is causing everyday prices to rise, making it substantially more expensive for families to put gasoline in their cars and food on the table, and in the process, it’s helping to keep economic growth from reaching levels many thought were inevitable late last year.

      To avoid a potential economic catastrophe, the Biden administration and Congress should slash unnecessary government spending, a move that would help to slow inflation, as well eliminate COVID-19 programs that are discouraging millions of people from returning to work. In May, businesses reported there were nine million job openings in the United States, a record high level.

      Unfortunately, the Biden administration and many in Congress are pushing to do the exact opposite. They want to continue programs that will discourage work, and instead of reducing spending, Biden and irresponsible members of Congress are calling for massive, costly new government programs.

      But Of course they won’t. But if Trump were President none of this would be happening… But hey, at least Biden isn’t smart enough to operate a cell phone & tweet anything mean to trigger the democrat snowflakes….

  4. This articulate,confident patriot should be compensated for his abysmal treatment at the hands of the defence department.
    Without his initial courage and his dedication to duty this tRump abomination may not have surfaced.
    Thank you LtCol Vidman

  5. When an old soldier can look up to a young man and feel pride in what he witnesses because that old soldier sees clearly that at least in the scope of devotion to country and Constitution that this young man is without sin, clear of conscience, and at peace with himself. That is beyond impressive!! And what we all deserve is, that if all our public servants and elected officials conducted themselves as Col. Vindman, then the American people would know without question that truth is the ground they all stand on

    1. Beautifully said. Honorable people in Washington are a rare thing to see. The world would be better with many more Vindmans.

    1. @Jesse Watters stuck in the 50’s again! It’s 2021… The Soviet Union collapsed decades ago. Putin is an oligarch. All the things you list are at the extreme and many are simply enforceing the Constitution such as the First Amendment. You’re the one trashing the country and the Constitution and the broadening of rights for all… It’s called progress, not communism!

    2. Can’t get more disrespectful to the Constitution that trying to overthrow the government on 1/6! And they certainly weren’t Democrats…

  6. This Man’s principles must be taught to all children. It would be nice if us adults took notice too…..

  7. Col Vindman has shown his love and respect for our country. Integrity, honor and, loyalty are just a few words that come to mind when hearing him speak. Thank you!

  8. Mr Vindmans actions will never be forgotten he is a true American, standing up for our country, and country before his own job and future, he is someone to show our children to look up to
