It's sad that good people are being driven out of the government for doing their jobs. I am shocked at the attacks on military personal by republicans since Trump. Tucker Clarson attacking Tammy Duckworth comes to mind. Tucker said she hates the country when she is an American Hero and he is a cowardly talking head is a new low.

Vindman's lawyer said Trump's bullying cut short his client's 21-year military career"

Both Vindman and Duckworth are heroes taken down by cowards.

Agreed. Service and honesty are still virtues.

What Tucker is saying is beyond stupid. I could find any service Tucker has preformed. Those who can do and those you can't do become pundits!


 "You're not supposed to criticize Tammy Duckworth in any way because she once served in the military," Carlson said on his Monday show. "Most people just ignore her. But when Duckworth does speak in public, you're reminded what a deeply silly and unimpressive person she is."

"It's long been considered out of bounds to question a person's patriotism," he added. "It's a very strong charge and we try not ever to make it. But in the face of all of this, the conclusion can't be avoided: These people actually hate America, there's no longer a question about that."

I assume Vindman has something better lined up.  You don’t leave a 21 year job because you don’t want to spend four more months under Trump.

Can you provide a little more context -- when he says "these people hate America" is he talking about democrats? liberals? people who support BLM protesters? 

I have to say I've never been impressed with Duckworth in off-the-cuff interviews.  She would not be my choice for VP. That said, this these people hate America thing is just so unnecessarily inflammatory.  Unless you are talking about hate groups/ terrorists, etc.

I bet he writes a book at least.

I'm not sure if Tucker meant Thai people or U.S. Army helicopter pilots or people who suffer severe combat wounds or women.

Does anyone know who's in charge? Someone ordered armed troops to attack peaceful protesters in front of the White House but nobody knows who? This is nuts!!!!

This is certainly a surprise....


"Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s top writer, Blake Neff, has resigned after CNN Business discovered that he had been posting racist and sexist material in an online forum under a pseudonym.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed to TheWrap on Friday that Neff had resigned but did not elaborate on the reason why.

According to CNN Business, Neff disparaged Black and Asian people and derided a woman for being a “megashrew” in multiple pseudonymous posts. Comments include, “Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down,” which CNN said Neff wrote last month. In another post made this week, CNN reported that Neff said that he “wouldn’t get LASIK from an Asian for free” in response to an email thread with the subject line, “Would u let a JET BLACK congo n—– do lasik eye surgery on u for 50% off?”

[/quote]Attorneys general of 23 states, led by California and Massachusetts, are suing Education Secretary Betsy DeVos over her revision of an Obama-era rule that was meant to help defrauded students of for-profit colleges seek debt relief.

“Once again, it shouldn't surprise you,” California AG Xavier Becerra said on a call with reporters. “It's sort of a bad old B-movie again. The Department of Education, Secretary DeVos didn't follow the rules in trying to promulgate this new rule — they didn't follow the administrative procedures act requirements.”

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, argues that the Education Department (ED)’s decision to repeal the Obama-era regulations “violates the Administrative Procedure Act (APA)” and also asked the court to “require ED to reimplement the Obama-era processes and protections.”

Becerra added that the ED actions under DeVos “are arbitrary and capricious … they rigged the system against students, flat and simple — they rigged the system.[/quote]

Isn't an investatgation into the Russia probe another investigation of the Trump addmistration? Didn't a republican Attorney General appoint a republican investigator to investigate Russian election interference?
