Dem Screws Over a Thousand Military Officers With Ultimatum Ahead of Independence Day

Sen. Tammy Duckworth declared on Thursday that she would block over 1,100 military promotions unless the Pentagon agrees to not stand in the way of the promotion of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who was a key witness in the Trump impeachment agenda earlier this year.

Ex- Military Dem Launches Attack Against Armed Forces

Duckworth is a staunch Democrat and an Iraq War veteran who lost both legs after a helicopter crashed in 2004. It appears that her time serving our country did not give her a more profound sympathy for fellow military men and women because she proclaimed she would block 1,123 members of the armed forces unless her demands are satisfied. She will not comply unless Defense Secretary Mark Esper “confirms in writing that he did not, or will not block” Vindman’s “expected and deserved” promotion to colonel, USA Today reported

Still Salty Over Impeachment Fail

Politicians have been dwelling on the fact they believe President Trump may not promote Vindman because of his ties to the impeachment trial against the president. 

Under normal circumstances, the Senate would pass the list of potential promotions through a vote, but since Duckworth objected to the standard procedure, this now halts the process. It would then fall to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to file a notion to attempt to counter her objections. 

“It is simply unprecedented and wrong for any Commander in Chief to meddle in routine military matters at all, whether or not he has a personal vendetta against a Soldier who did his patriotic duty and told the truth – a Soldier who has been recommended for promotion by his superiors because of his performance,” Duckworth said in a statement. “This goes far beyond any single military officer, it is about protecting a merit-based system from political corruption and unlawful retaliation.”

Her Demands Must Be Met or No Deal

She continued that she would only confirm to stop the hold up when Esper gave written agreement that the Trump administration would not block the promotion. 

During the impeachment sham, Vindman, who served as a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, testified fiercely against Trump and called his requests of Ukraine “inappropriate” and “improper.” He also referred to Trump as “insubordinate.” After the impeachment trial ended in Trump’s acquittal, Vindman was removed from his National Security Council position. 

Playing petty political games with military promotions is distasteful and relatively surprising coming from a woman who is a veteran herself.

    • He knew he was lying, this skank would sell out this country to the highest bidder, he’s deserving of a dishonorable discharge, if he did this to Obama instead of Trump, he would already have his D D and the MSM would be calling it well deserved. Yes Duck is an idiot, I knew some just like her when I was in, only there were not that many women back then, especially combat. as there are now.

  1. If the DOD refuses to meet the blackmail demand, the Democrats will again claim that Pres. Trump is anti-military.

  2. WHO THE HELL DOES THIS BITCH THINK SHE IS?!! SHE HAS NO POWER TO STOP PROMOTIONS OF THE MILITARY!! THAT IS THE ARMY GENERALS JOB!!

  3. Evidently “staunch Democrats” feel it’s OK for them to tamper with military promotions to get their own treacherous incompetents promoted.

  4. She like the FOOL she is protecting are TRAITORS to the very service that got them where they are. Anyone who votes for Democraps and is in or was in the Military they are TRAITORS to the Military. Democraps have used the Defense budget for their vote buying Schemes since the early 60’s. Carter even tried to buy the Military off when he gave a big raise to the Military before his election against Reagan. Thank GOD they did not fall for his trick. Clinton and Obozo were bad for the Military as well. She should be dragged from her office and tarred and feathered for this IGNORANCE.

  5. Duckworth is a scumbag socialist and feminist who has lied many times in her position, and Vindman lied under oath and has publicly denounced the commander in chief , President Trump. He does not deserve promotion and should be separated from military service.

  6. When the Commander in Chief is accused of insubordination, one must take into consideration the “mindset” of those in the Chain of Command, particularly a Lt.Col who hopes to be promoted. A good read on a Lt Col whining about the President being insubordinate, is like reading a 3rd grade apology regarding how little Johnny disrespects the principal. ” But Mommy, he hurt my feelings” waaaa

  7. How disgraceful can she get to stop deserving men and women from getting their promotions . If she feels so strongly about Vindman then do it another way How would she like it if it were her waiting for her promotion she deserved Shame, Shame

  8. She is starting to sound as petty, partisan, vicious, and vindictive as ‘princess’, Evidently in her ‘world’ it is okay to screw over 1100+ deserving officers in favor of one VERY petty officer – who very likely should have been charged for multiple violations of the UCMJ. Never mind that she ‘demands’ instead of showing a bit of decorum and class and putting forth a cohesive argument.

  9. What rank was, is she?? How is she involved in military matters, she has an opinion, good for her. What makes her opinion more important than military people of proper rank for this procedure. I served in the Marine Corps from 68-71. Do I get to give my input on this mans promotion?? If not why not??

  10. Tammy suffered brain damage in the crash that took her legs. I expected more from her as a fellow vet, but she was just one big disappointment from the get go. She is even worse than Durbin. I think she is bitter about her damage she received in the war. She should accept the fact that all military service is voluntary, no body forced her to enlist. My service number begins with RA and I new what I was getting into when I joined back in 1964.

  11. Can you say EXTORTION?!?!?
    What that senator is doing is out right extortion!
    I don’t care if it is an “OK” procedure in the senate(it shouldn’t be).
    What?! Are senators allowed to use extortion to get what they want?!?!?!?
    Would you or I be?
    Do you think Vindman has any honor to deny the promotion realizing that
    the criminal senator got it for him using extortion?!

  12. Vindman is a liar and a putz. He should not even be in the military because he left his honor and integrity at the feet of the democrats in the first place for agreeing to lie about the president. He should be court martialed an run out of the service with no retirement. Duckworth should be censured and lambasted for pulling such a stunt and recalled from her position.

  13. Now this woman is extremely correct, Trump has interfered in US Military affairs on 3 notable occassions, the most seriour was when a military member was about to be kicked out for killing a captured enemy child, and then Trump over ruled the military, there has been a few other occassions. Could that be why Trump is the most disliked President by the Military, in the history of this USA. The President may be the Commander in Chief, but very few have ever bothered in military affairs, unless requested by the Military. Now name me one militaqry who likes their President buddying up toa n arch enemy who has vowed to destreoy Amnerica, exactly what Trump has is doing and has done during his Presidency, never holding Russia accountable for any actions in Iraq or any where else in the World, knowing theya re the weapons supplier to all the Talabanms and ISSI groups, maybe through proxies but the things come directly from russian arms factories with Russian technicians instructing on how to use the items.

    • The only Prez who buddied up to our arch enemy was Obama, who buddied up with IRAN!
      Obie is one of the most hated Prez’s in USA history. He traveled the world apologizing for America when no apologies were warranted.

      It wasn’t President Trump who buddied up with Russia, it was Hillary & Obama…

  14. TAMMY DUCK FACE HAS TO MUCH POWER. SHE MUST BE REMOVED. A GOOD TIME TO DO IT IS NOV 3RD,
    THE LIBERTY FREEDOM TREE NEEDS ALL THREE BRANCHES.
    IF BIDEN WINS HE ONLY WILL BE VP. CAMEL HEAD WILL RUN THIS COMMUNIST SATTELITE. COMMUNIST CENSORSHIP.

    NO. ONE ENEMY OF THE USA. THE COMMUNIST MEDIA. TRUMP IN NOVEMBER 80 MILLION VOTES. DOW BY MID SEPTEMBER 30,000 AS BEFORE THE WHUHAN BAT SCHIFF FROM COMMUNIST CHINA.

  15. So … she saying this is how women working in our government act when they don’t get their own way ? If so then maybe we shouldn’t let women work in our government . So far every women in our government has gone bat shit crazy with the power given them . How can they f#ck over so many for one . Time to take the power away from spoiled children that can’t act right . and still they cant understand why we call them cray bitchs .

  16. So let Trump say he wont and then the promotions are in and then just refuse to allow the traitor Vindman to get promoted and put a ban on him getting promoted. What is she gonna do? Whine? Obama has lied many times and she has lied when she claimed to be a combat pilot when she knows full and well that only Congress can give that authority and so far they have not voted to allow women in or around a combat unit. SO I guess this makes her a hypocrite.

  17. That’s typical of Dems, they’ll hold up work and food and everything else just to get their way. Pathetic excuse of abusing their authority. I pray that God helps you to see the err of your ways.

  18. I would make the nitwit Duckworth a counter offer-if she gets her nose out of military business and keeps it out, I would stop the court martial of Vindman. During his brave stint before the House Intelligence Committee he openly discussed how he had over ridden Trump’s orders and told the Ukrainians that they should only accept a requirement if it came from him. Then, after the entire impeachment fiasco was completed he admitted to lying during the proceedings. He shouldn’t be promoted, his ass should be kicked to the curb, and at the earliest possible time so should Ms. Duckworth’s.

  19. TO HELL WITH ” DUCKWORTH ” AND HERE INSIDOUS ATTACK ON THE DOD WITH RESPECT TO AN LYING OFFICER TO BE PROMOTED TO FULL COLONEL! WHAT VINDMAN DID IS UN BECOMING AN OFFICER OF THE MILITARY, THERE FORE DOES NOT DESERVE ANY HIGHER RANK, ” PERIOD “!

    • Vindman should have been demoted & tried for treason for being a participant in the Democrats’ attempted coup to overthrow our President!

  20. Vindman LIED!!! He deserves to be ripped of all rank and dissmissed from the military with dishonorable conduct!

  21. From my state but she certainly doesn’t represent me or my family. And she claims to be ex-military. She is ex-human and anti-American in my book.

  22. So Obama creating dangerous ROE for the troops to follow was ok! I imagine she sucked as an officer in the military!

  23. if the military say he is guilty of something like lying, he would be court marialed. if a normal promotion is in order, the president doesnt interfere. he trusts the military above all. they determine what is what along with their jag and sja. duckworth is grandstanding. vidman isnt someone any soldier would care to follow into combat. trust and honesty are traits those in harms way depend upon

  24. It’s Duck hunting season! Her disgraceful actions have voided any service she may have rendered to this country! As a veteran, her actions are a total disgrace to the military she once served. She has violated her oath to our country and should be removed and sent to retire in some forgotten nursing home! Vindman was a liar and desecrated his oath and the military to gain political power! And he saw a way to gain it by playing ball with the dumbassocrats to falsely attack President Trump! That in itself should trigger a full blown military tribunal and strip him of rank and benefits! Duckworthless should be removed now for extortion and abuse of power!

  25. TomP
    If I were the SecDef, I would give her the letter requested. …”I do not intend to interfere with the Army Promotion Board selections to the benefit of any individual” …
    If the selection board has selected Vindman, so be it.

  26. Ain’t that just like a filthy Democrat? They want to promote liars & traitors while trying to prosecute innocent Americans like General Flynn.
