  • Duckworth: Trump Uses Military Like Toy Soldiers Lined Up on His Desk — He ‘Doesn’t Understand the Sacrifice’

    09/05/2020 9:59:07 AM PDT · by rktman · 98 replies ^ | 9/4/2020 | Pam Key
    Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) said Friday on CNN’s “Newsroom” that President Donald Trump uses the military for his ego and does not understand their sacrifice while reacting to The Atlantic article claiming the president said Americans who died in war were “losers” and “suckers.” Duckworth said, “We all know this is exactly Donald Trump. This is who he is. People know the story is accurate because he’s consistently said these things over the years and continues to act in a way where he likes to use the military for his own personal ego as if we were some sort of...

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill. defended the decision to include former President Bill Clinton in the lineup of speakers at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday, telling Fox News' Bret Baier that the party "is a big tent and all sorts of folks fit underneath it."

    US Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) made another clumsy television appearance today. On "Fox News Sunday," Duckworth struggled to speak grammatical English and made several more bizarre statements. Duckworth continues to insist that Russia is paying bounties to members of the Taliban to kill US troops in Afghanistan despite the fact that numerous US intelligence agencies have dismissed the claims as being uncorroborated. Duckworth also alleged that the Department of Homeland Security is kidnapping ("mostly peaceful") protesters off the streets of Portland, Oregon where the US Court House is under attack. Duckworth doubled down on stupid by stating that universal background...

    On Monday night, Carlson savaged Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth – who many believe is rising to the top of the list of contenders for Joe Biden to select as his running mate – for Duckworth’s comments on fake news CNN where she expressed her openness to tearing down statues of George Washington. Carlson blasted Duckworth by declaring that anyone that hates America’s past and wants to erase it hates America. This led to furious denunciations in the fake news media and by Duckworth herself, claiming that because Duckworth was injured in combat she could never be criticized. The following night,...

    Tuesday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) said Fox News host Tucker Carlson called her a “moron” and a “coward,” because she is “Asian-American.” Host Brianna Keilar said, “I want to ask you, turning now to something else that is happened since we last spoke, about the attacks on you by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. We spoke a lot about them on this show, and he made it a point to go after you when you said it was a discussion. There was a discussion to be had when it came to removing monuments of American leaders and...

    Breitbart ^ | July 09 2020 | HANNAH BLEAU
    The New York Times on Wednesday took issue with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson over his criticisms of far-left lawmakers, accusing him of unleashing “nativist smears.” The attempted lecture comes as the Times continues to employ several individuals — from editors to fact-checkers — who have made waves with racist utterances of their own. The Times took specific issue with Carlson’s recent critiques of Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) after the conservative firebrand suggested that she and many of those within her caucus “actually hate America.” He renewed those criticisms on Tuesday night. “There are many of us here who do like...

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) announced Wednesday she will continue to hold 1,123 military promotions until she gets answers on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s promotion, despite him choosing to retire. Last week, Duckworth announced she would block Senate confirmation of 1,123 senior military officers until Defense Secretary Mark Esper confirmed in writing that he would not block Vindman’s promotion to colonel.

    As the mainstream media all but declares the 2020 election for Joe Biden, Democrats are making mistakes. They’re saying and doing things that could cause problems—if Republicans step up their game. Consider the congressional logjam over police reform. After George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, the nation was angry and aghast. Then Rayshard Brooks was killed in Atlanta, and the demand for change grew even stronger. Yet when the Senate moved to take up the comprehensive police reform bill introduced by Tim Scott (R., S.C.), Democrats blocked its consideration, despite the bill’s many similarities with the Democratic House’s measure. Sen. Scott...

    The volleys started when Carlson, in a nearly 14-minute segment, included Duckworth’s answer on CNN over the weekend when she was asked whether she also supported removing monuments honoring historical figures in U.S. history who were slave owners, such as George Washington. In her response, which went on to criticize President Donald Trump’s recent appearance at Mount Rushmore, Duckworth said there should be a national dialogue on the issue at some point. When pressed, Duckworth said, “I think we should listen to everybody.” On his show Monday night, Carlson noted that Duckworth is among the contenders to be Democrat Joe...

    Joe Biden slammed President Donald Trump on Tuesday night for questioning potential running mate Tammy Duckworth's patriotism, calling it 'disgusting' and 'sickening.' The former vice president did not mince words when it came to his rival for the White House, saying Trump was carried 'around like a puppy in one of those little puppy cages' by Russian President Vladimir Putin and calling Trump's attacks on Duckworth a sign of the 'depravity' in the White House. Duckworth, the Democratic senator from Illinois who lost both legs while serving as a combat pilot in Iraq, is being vetted as Biden's running mate...

    When Joe Biden pledged at the final Democratic primary debate to select a woman as his running mate, Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth was rarely mentioned as a contender. But that is changing as Biden and his campaign move closer to a decision that is expected to come early next month. **SNIP** Biden's announcement that he would pick a woman in March was largely greeted with cheers, but the terms of an intra-party debate over representation at the top of the ticket have sharpened over the past few months. The question now -- one that has been amplified by more than...

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill) says she will block Senate confirmation of 1,123 senior U.S. Armed Forces promotions unless Defense Secretary Mark Esper agrees to promote Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. Vindman served on the White House National Security Council and gained fame for testifying in the House impeachment hearings that, in his opinion, Trump was too aggressively pushing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate corruption at the Burisma corporation. Burisma also paid Hunter Biden—son of then Vice-President Joe Biden--$80,000 per month for a "no show" job on the company's Board of Directors. Trump fired Vindman from his White House job...

    Video at link. President Donald Trump's 4th of July speech at Mt. Rushmore Friday night focused on the United States' history and legacy in the world. He also addressed the issue with cancel culture advocates trying to completely shatter American history by pulling down monuments and statues. But, according to Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), the president's speech should have focused on the 130,000 Americans who died as a result of the Wuhan coronavirus and the bogus story about Russia putting a bounty on American troops' heads. "Where does it end? Should statues, for example, of George Washington, come down?" CNN's...

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) announced Thursday that she would block the promotions of 1,123 senior military officers until Defense Secretary Mark Esper promises that he will promote Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who is believed to have communicated with the “whistleblower” that sparked Trump’s impeachment. Her office called the move “unprecedented” but said it came in response to reports of “political interference in military matters” by Trump — the commander in chief.

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., on Thursday announced her intention to block Senate confirmations for 1,123 senior U.S. Armed Forces promotions until Defense Secretary Mark Esper confirms he will not block the "expected and deserved" promotion of Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. Vindman, an Iraq War veteran, served on the White House National Security Council and was thrust into the limelight last year when he testified about President Trump's July 2019 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that became the heart of a Democratic-led impeachment inquiry. Vindman said he listened to the call and filed a whistleblower complaint over concerns...

    Whatever his wobbles, Joe Biden has, from the start of his presidential campaign, got one thing exactly right: The 2020 election is a battle for the soul of America. That’s not just a pretty slogan. It’s the stomach-knotting truth — and it’s the frame he should use for choosing his running mate. It’s why he should pick Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois. She’s a paragon of the values that Donald Trump, for all his practice as a performer, can’t even pantomime. She’s best described by words that are musty relics in his venal and vainglorious circle: “sacrifice,” “honour,” “humility.” More...
