On Being a Fake and a Coward: by Army Vet

By | September 30, 2018

[September 30, 2018]  Army Vet gets mixed up in politics today as he calls out the character of Democratic U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut for being a fake Vietnam Veteran and a coward.

A politician is to lying what Wisconsin is to cheese?  Some people lie more than others but there is nothing more gut-wrenching and disgusting than a senior leader who is willing to steal the valor of real heroes.  U.S. Senator Blumenthal of Connecticut regularly lied about his military service, claiming that not only was he a Vietnam veteran but that he also served with bravery and distinction in combat.  Nothing is more sick than a man who claims something of great honor for himself, announces it to the world, and brags about it but is not deserving.  It doesn’t matter that he apologized because he got caught.  Congressman Richard Blumenthal is a fake and a coward.

When is an apology not an apology?  There are many who say that this is no big deal since all politicians exaggerate and they are often misunderstood.  So what’s the big deal?  “Little Richard,” as I call him, was a U.S. Marine Reservist in Washington, D.C., but repeatedly said, “We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam.”  Hard to misunderstand “I served in Vietnam.”  There is only one thing to say to those who give him a pass on his duplicity and deceit; I pity you for your self-inflicted but deserved mental disorder.   We’ve all been around people who repeatedly lie.  That’s what Little Richard did.  We also know that there is something in their mental makeup that keeps them lying even when caught.  You can never, ever trust them.  Like Jane Fonda, to the day he dies, he must be reminded that he is not just untrustworthy but that he betrayed the men and women who served in Vietnam.

A paragon of truth?  Little Richard likes to set himself apart from the rest of us by holding himself up as a paragon of truth and justice.  Give me a break will ya!  Please don’t lecture us about truth.  At the U.S. Supreme Court hearings with Judge Brett Kavanaugh (and yes, I watched the whole comedy), Blumenthal said some stupid Latin phrase.  My friends tell me that it means if you lie about one thing you may infer you lie about everything.  Well, duh!  I’m told that Congressman Tom Cotton tweeted that Little Richard lied for years about serving in Vietnam which is all you need to know about his courage and honesty.  I would have used more expletives but Cotton gets his point across anyway.  For regular readers of my column, I won’t have to remind you that General Satterfield edits out all the worst cusswords.

A Fake and a coward?  Senator Blumenthal, you are a coward, a wussy, a lazy self-centered, and overrated Congressman from a state with an honorable history.  Connecticut is where several Revolutionary War battles occurred, where men like you and me died for a great cause, where ordinary people struggled to make a decent living, and where honor, selflessness, and courage matter in war.  Blumenthal turned his back on all of us and continues to flip-off our currently serving troops and veterans.  Is there something retarded with the brain of Connecticut voters who keep electing this dweeb or do they just want their government handouts and screw everybody else?  No matter, I don’t plan to visit the state anyway.  Oh, could it be worse?  Yes, Blumenthal, you could be U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse.

“Army Vet” is, of course, a pseudonym. He is real. The only way he would agree to write for theLeaderMaker.com was anonymously. As you will see, he’s not afraid to name names and tell it like it is but he does fear for his family, thus the fake name. His experience in with militaries around the world is extensive but more poignantly, he originally served in the Israeli Army and then the U.S. Army; fighting in wars of both armies. He will write on military leadership but I think you will find him to be somewhat unconventional and certainly controversial.

    I’m so disgusted with politicians and their lies. No surprise here that Donald Trump got elected. They are all weasels of the lowest character. Blumenthal is just one of the many.

    1. Tomas C. Clooney

      Donald Trump was elected president to “drain the swamp” of these liars and cowards. So far, so good. Note however they are not taking it laying down.

    Nice new thread on Blumenthal and his cowardice. Has disgusting I find politicians like him that are so fake, even my 5 year old can tell. Just another used-car-salesman (no offense of course to used car salesmen).

    I forgot to add the other day that Senator Blumenthal actually bragged about his “heroic” combat in Vietnam for 15 years! Get that, 15 years. Then he cried when he had to admit that he “misspoke”. That alone proved he was not combat vet.

    1. Anita

      Amazing how some people can lie publically for so long.

    2. Scotty Bush

      Yes, I heard this yesterday on the Rush Limbaugh show. I think Rush called him “Da Nang Blumenthal” because the senator (small caps) said he served in Da Nang province, Vietnam. Shocking at the level of detail Blumental gave to drum up the narrative he was a combat veteran. Then he said it was just the wrong words he used. Pathetic.

    3. Bryan Lee

      Too bad Blumenthal is not criticized every day of his life. Too many folks are just moral cowards like he is.

    I got a big laugh out of this article and so enjoyed it. Straight to the point. People simply don’t understand that a pathological liar is a serious problem. When you have a liar as a leader the risks are immeasurable.

    Thanks to all who have commented on Army Vet’s blog post for today. As you know, I try to bring a variety of guest bloggers for our entertainment and educational value. Army Vet is the first guest blogger I had on my website. He is welcome to post anytime.

    1. Tomas C. Clooney

      Yeah, me too. Read everything here at Gen. Satterfield’s blog. Nice work.

    2. Albert Ayer

      I think most of the readers here are big fans of Army Vet and would like to see more of his writings.

    The lesson here is that lies will follow you to your grave. Better not to go down that road. Connecting his lies and comparing them to Hanoi Jane is a bit of a stretch. She is a traitor. He is just an idiot who wants attention.

    Dick Blumenthal is finally saying what he should have said last week, sending an apology for his exaggerations about his Vietnam service to the Hartford Courant in Connecticut:
    “At times when I have sought to honor veterans, I have not been as clear or precise as I should have been about my service in the Marine Corps Reserves,” Blumenthal said in a statement e-mailed to the Hartford Courant late Sunday. “I have firmly and clearly expressed regret and taken responsibility for my words.” “I have made mistakes and I am sorry. I truly regret offending anyone,” Blumenthal added. “I will always champion the cause of Connecticut’s and our nation’s veterans.”
    Blumenthal’s early response, once the New York Times broke the story, was to surround himself with friendly veterans and vaguely regret his “misplaced words.”

    1. Doug Smith

      Hmmmmm, misplaced words. Yep, just keep telling yourself that “Dickie”.

  8. Max Foster

    The news media reported Senator Blumenthal’s lies about his combat service in Vietnam that they were just “misstatements.” No surprise here that no one trusts the media either. As Gen. Satterfield noted, Blumenthal not only lied about his combat service but bragged about how brave he was. Don’t liberal newspapers get the message? A lie is a lie, not a misstatement. See liberal-wacko newspaper the Seattle News worm their way on this one. https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/politics/blumenthal-apologizes-for-misstatements-on-vietnam/

    Nice! Another fan of you, Army Captain. Long time reader of your stuff. Please write more on this subject. I would like to see you tackle more “inside” the US issues. Thanks.

  10. Kenny Foster

    The worst kind of coward. How true that you put the finger on Congressman Blumenthal. I like you calling him “little Richard.”

  11. Shawn C. Stolarz

    Big fan here, Army Vet. Another fantastic, non-PC article on a current leader subject.

  12. Mike Baker

    Great article, Army Vet. Keep those columns coming for us to read. I love it when you are a hard hitter on people who step out of the zone of truth and justice.

  13. Gil Johnson

    By the way, I’m a big fan of yours Army Vet. I too saw the hearings and was thinking the same thing when Senator Blumenthal was asking questions about truth and honesty. I was thinking, this man is a liar and a repeated liar and only gave a weak apology after he realized that he’d been caught red-handed it would make him look bad.

    1. Billy Kenningston

      You said it! Blumenthal has been disgusting but I’m more disgusted with the voters of his state. Who would elect a man like that?

    2. Janna Faulkner

      The truth shall make you free. Oh, that doesn’t apply to politicians.

  14. Dennis Mathes

    Tell me what you think.!! Ha Ha. I agree wholeheartedly with you in the assessment that Blumenthal is a retard. He is the slimy car-salesman you want to take a bath after you meet him. His “performance” at the recent hearings was disgusting.

  15. Army Captain

    I always thought any state that votes in a fake and a coward has something wrong with them. I pity the citizens of Connecticut.
