Re: Former “acting Sec of Defense” decrees


The new book Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa is meant to damage Donald Trump and it attempts to justify a potential act of treason by a windblown general. It reveals, if true, that General Milley betrayed then-President Donald Trump and the nation.

The media has swiftly come to defend Milley’s potential act of treason. Yet, it is even worse than first reported in The Washington Post.

As reported by CNN’s summary of the book, General Milley demanded total loyalty to him from the military command, and not to the President. He even made each commander take an oath TO HIM.

During his secret meeting on January 8th, Milley instructed senior military officials in charge of the National Military Command Center to not take orders from anyone unless he was involved, according to a summary of the book by CNN.

“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Milley told them.

“Got it?” Milley asked, according to the book.

“Yes, sir.”

“Milley considered it an oath,” Woodward and Costa wrote.

An unusual situation. Hamilton did write a piece about the threat to the Republic from an abnormal, malignant personality- I believe he was referring to Burr.


Hey Ed. Vindman was right

IF they were secret.

Room was full of other people. All in it, I’m sure.  Good shockers always like that.

Somebody from your Primary source bothered to ask:


But Fox News spoke with multiple individuals who were in the room during the two calls, which took place over video teleconference, not the phone. Officials said the calls were coordinated with the Defense secretary’s office.

Sure sounds like a Military coup. Public hearings and mass executions are in order.

WE have nine people that would fit that duty.

Well boys. You essentially get your wish

Bi-partisan Co-Chairs of the Congressional Committee looking into 1-6 announce that Milley’s involvement is on their list of things to investigate.

You’ll get it hashed out right out in the open,  in front of God and everybody.

Re: Holding my sides as I ask…

Who would that be that would hear a Court Martial?
I seem to recall that those panels are nowhere near that big.

Unelected Jurists doesn’t fit the “civilian control” thing everybody is throwing around.
