Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is a menace; to Congress, to the US military, to the nation she serves. She is an ardent leftist and uber-feminist whose ego is writing checks reality can’t cash.
She has apparently coronated herself Number One in a SPECTRE like female led congressional kangaroo court that now decides who can stay in Congress and who cannot, based only on accusations.
I do not like Senator Al Franken. I do not like his politics, his personality or his comedy. It would be a cold day in hell before I ever voted for him, or any member of his party. But, I agree with Newt Gingrich; Franken was lynched by Gillibrand and his own party. As an American citizen, Franken is entitled to due process. One million people in the state of Minnesota voted for him, yet 30 Democrats in Congress led by Kirsten Trotsky Gillibrand now believe they have the right to undue the will of the people.
Democrats trying to undue the will of the people; there’s a lot of that going around in the Beltway now.
Sensing blood in the water and the keys to the White House in 2020, Gillibrand attacked President Trump claiming that if Franken and Conyers were forced to go for sexual harassment, Trump must resign, based on accusations from a dozen bimbos Gloria Allred dug up.
Trump; God bless him, never saw a Twitter fight he didn’t like. He savaged Gillibrand yesterday with the ferocity of an all-night Viking raid in Northumbria.
“Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumerand someone who would come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the President tweeted on Tuesday morning.
“Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!” he added, a reference to Gillibrand’s statement that former President Clinton should have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Sensing a golden PR opportunity to battle POTUS on Twitter, Gillibrand counter-punched.
“You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office,” she wrote on Twitter. She highlighted the comment again later, calling Trump’s tweet a “sexist smear.”
Senator Pocahantas Warren came to Gillibrand’s defense – when she took it a step further in a Tweet that raised eyebrows.
“Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @Sen-
Gillibrand? Do you know who you’re picking a fight with?” Warren wrote on Twitter.
Yes, Mr. President do you know who you’re picking a fight with – with a dangerous egomaniac and her fraudulent affirmative action wingwoman, that’s who.
When she’s not overseeing the destruction of senators from her own party, or battling with Trump on Twitter, you can find Gillibrand advocating for every social engineering fiasco currently infecting the military like the Black Plague.
As a junior senator from New York, Gillibrand was 100% behind the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which legally established open homosexuality in the military.
She is a proponent of transgenders serving in the military and recently Tweeted out her euphoria when Trump’s ban was halted by two leftist federal judges and the Pentagon announced they will begin enlisting the mentally ill on January 1st.
“Great news. Anyone who is willing to serve our country, and who meets the standards, should have every opportunity to do so regardless of gender identity.”
Obviously, Gillibrand has never been on a battlefield.
Of course Gillibrand supports that most loony of all feminist fantasies; women serving in the combat arms and special operations units of the US military.
In 2012 she was the force behind the failed Gender Equality in Combat Act, which would have required the DoD to report on implementation of a termination on the ground combat exclusion policy for female members of the Armed Forces.
Gender Equality in Combat? Like I said, Gillibrand, has obviously never been on a battlefield.
And, this is from her website.
On December 3, 2015, then-Secretary of Defense, Ashton Carter, ordered all positions in the military be opened to women. Women had already been serving shoulder to shoulder with male servicemembers, and dying in combat.
Now that the exclusion has been lifted, and women can serve in all positions, Senator Gillibrand is focused on ensuring that the services put in place the systems to recruit and retain women for combat positions, and set them up for success.
Set them up for success?
First of all, while women have died in every war the US has fought, women were not serving in the combat arms during the Iraq War and in Afghanistan. While it’s true that women went on missions with combat arms units in cultural liaison teams or returned fire when a transportation convoy was ambushed, that is not the same as serving in a combat arms or special operations unit. To say the two are equal is like comparing riding your bike down the street, with riding in the Tour de France.
Since Senator Gillibrand is so eager to set up American women for failure, aka their deaths in the combat arms and special operations, one wonders what military experience she has.
The answer is none, nada, nichts, zippo. She wouldn’t know a M-16 from a melon ball and a RPG from a frothing latte.
She’s never been in the military, she’s never been in the combat arms or special ops, and she sure as hell has never been in a war. She’s never been within 5000 miles of any shot or shell. The only elephant she’s seen is in the D.C. zoo.
Gillibrand has never been without a shower for months, never frozen to death on a Reforger, never carried a ruck in the rain and howling wind on a jungle trail, never eaten sand at 30 mph while TC’ing a track. She’s never conducted a movement to contact, or set up an ambush. She’s never put cold steel down range, nor would she know how to. She’s a soccer mom from upstate New York who knows nothing about the military, nor does she know anything about the physical and mental demands of the combat arms, specials operations and their unique and solely MALE, warrior cultures. Yet, she has the unmitigated gall to back concepts which are in the process of killing the combat arms and special operations, while simultaneously flushing the national security of the US down the toilet so she can feel good about equal opportunity for women.
Well, that sounds very stylish…
Obviously, no one in the Pentagon, including Mad Dog Mattis or Fighting Joe Dunford has the desire or the guts to tell her to shut the f**k up and sit down before she gets a lot of young Americans killed in the next war, which is probably going to be a hell of a lot worse than anything we’ve seen in a long time. Think about that, Marine generals, combat vets are letting some know nothing with a giant ego dictate US defense policy.
She’s currently on the Senate Armed Forces committee where she can do even more damage. I wouldn’t doubt if she pals around in her spare time with another train wreck for the military, retired Lieutenant General Claudia Kennedy, who actually served, but is another person who wouldn’t know a TOW missile from a tow truck.
No doubt, like Comrade Senator Kamala Harris, Gillibrand thinks she will one day park her keyster in the Oval Office. Look for her to back every crazy Democratic Party idea, while pushing the farcical idea of women in the combat arms and special ops, continuing to target POTUS, all the while lining herself up for a 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue run in 2020.
She’s a legend in her own mind.
