Treason? Resignation Calls Follow Report
of General Milley's Secret Calls
to China

Original Article

After the Afghanistan withdrawal fiasco, some said General Mark Milley should no longer be chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, so Tuesday’s Washington Post blockbuster, excerpted from Robert Costa and Bob Woodward’s new book Peril, only adds fuel to that fire. Costa and Woodward report, “Twice in the final months of the Trump administration, the country’s top military officer was so fearful that the president’s actions might spark a war with China that he moved urgently to avert armed conflict.” In two secret phone calls, they report, Milley assured Gen. Li Zuocheng of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army that the United States would not attack Beijing. One call

It is now established that the US military is a treasonous cabal that threatens to become an army of occupation in support of Global Totalitarian Socialism. Thanks to George W, Bush, the neo-cons, and the legions of supporters of the bloated military -industrial complex, our failure to heed President Eisenhower's prophetic words spell D-O-O-M.

Nancy Pelosi probably initiated this and is a co-conspirator in a coup. The woman is evil and dangerous, letting her hatred of Republicans and her drama queen antics get to the point that she is a threat yo American security. She and the Dems talked incessantly about "insurrection," causing countries like China and Iran to believe that the country was unstable. Her alarmism and over-heated rhetoric was taken to the Pentagon (where she had no business being) and Milley lacked the judgment and discernment to dismiss her. It was NOT Trump who was a military threat to the USA, but Nancy Pelosi. She was the one who was trying to use the military to seize power, and for the first time in American history, to prevent a peaceful transfer of power.

Milley should face Courts Martial for violating the UCMJ. Busted to Private. Spend considerable time in Leavenworth. Then subject to shaming for the rest of his life. His actions are similar to the most famous traitor of all, Benedict Arnold.

President Trump exhibited NO signs of taking any kind of hostile actions to China or any other country, much less launching any nuclear attack. Milley's paranoia by contrast directed HIS hostility to American citizens as his enemy, and China as his friend and ally that must be protected/earned. It is inconceivable that a US general/CJC would even think of giving advance warning to our mortal enemy and aligning other flag officers to disobey our own President. How would we know that he wasn't a planted mole for the enemy in the first place? This is real treason. This was a real coup. And every co-conspirator, including Nancy Pelosi, should be ferreted out and charged.

What happened was an all out coup. Not only was Milley up to his ears in this, he also conspired with Pelosi and Schumer. They knew of the fraudulent election. We are looking at the deep state everyone. I believe Trump had some idea when he fired the CIA director before his election. I need time to digest this entire mess. You know we will learn more and more today. Sit tight, digest and we all can hopefully find out just who was involved in this.

Posobiec is reporting that at least one of the calls to the Chinese military was intercepted by an allied nation, and was reported back to officials at Fort Meade. If there are actual recordings of this, Medals should be strung up - today.

According to this new book, Milley was worried Trump could "go rogue," which to a deep- state, treasonous general means putting America first. Milley has a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University and a masters from Columbia, so he's been thoroughly indoctrinated. Benedict Milley is the poster boy for what 's wrong with the US - a commie general in charge of our military, a military that swore an oath to defend us against enemies foreign and domestic. We presently have traitors at the highest levels of our government.

While given his recent behavior it's easy to believe that Our Gal Milley would do something so treacherous as collude with Chinese military leaders, there's one fact that gives me pause - Bob Woodward. As soon as I saw that this accusation against Milley comes from a book Woodward is about to release, red flags went off in my head. Woodward has a history of fabricating sensational charges to sell books (his death bed interview with Bill Casey springs immediately to mind), so this may be another creation of his overactive imagination. Investigation of the charge is definitely warranted, but until we have all the facts it's best to hold off on marching Milley to the gallows..

#5, I am afraid you are correct. We can no longer trust the military. Democrat ideology has permeated the upper echelon. How else could Milley have a meeting and get consent of the officers there to ignore their CIC? They had to know this was against every code of conduct in place. You do not go around your CIC. Nancy has been busy fomenting a Coup D'etat plain and simple. However, to manage to get Milley to go along with it is mind blowing. Clearly, I have had too high an opinion of our military leaders. I honestly believed if anyone knew and respected the Constitution and would defend it, it would be our generals, apparently not. My heart is heavy with the realization that an unimaginable evil has seized power in this country and they are going to allow nothing to stop them. Think about the confidence and hubris it took to conspire against a sitting POTUS in this manner. Nancy calculated the odds and determined that they were worth taking so she did. Unbelievable hubris and confidence. Will democrats pay a price? Highly unlikely. They continue to steal what they cannot win and no one evidently can stop them.

The authors of this so-called "exposé" were apparently happy to sit on this piece of info all through the election and Milley Vanill's Senate Confirmation hearings ... assuming it is true. Let's give all the military officers in the room who supported this coup d'état a chance to respond. Already people are acting like this armchair general is some sort of hero! He saved America from the raving Orange Man! If nothing comes of this ... we are totally over as a country. Imagine a general undermining China Joe like this or Obummer?

He will remain as Chief of Staff. All Americans should realize that Miley is exactly who the communist death democrats want at the top of the military in order to complete the transformation of it into a force whose primary goal is not to defend us from foreign enemies but to be used as a blunt, brutal force against us as the imposition of a communist totalitarian rule over our Republic proceeds. Fat Traitor Miley is totally in lockstep with the communist death democrats goal so why would they get rid of him? Traitor Miley is not going anywhere, is not going to resign, and will not be punished for his treason if the charges are true. Still have to keep in mind that a citizen is presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law.

If any part of it is true, General Milley needs to be court martialed and charged with treason fomenting a coup, as should the generals who knew about it and remained silent. Were any of the other JCS leadership (field or flag officers) present or aware? If so, they should be court martialed as well.

#19, that would be a normal reaction but this book was co-authored by Bob Woodward of Watergate fame. He’s not the kind of guy who would usually go after a demonrat, so for him to write this I pretty much have to believe that it’s true. Unless he thought what Milley did was a good thing and was meaning to praise him for it. I haven’t read the book so don’t know.

Isn’t this the same Gen. Miley that repeatedly obstructed President Trump’s attempts to withdraw from Afghanistan honorably? He repeatedly came up with one reason for delaying the withdrawal. Could it be that he was in secret communications with the Taliban like he was with the Chinese military? I find the explanation that Milley believed that President Trump would start a war with China unbelievable. President Trump has been trying to get us out of never ending war. Milley, by suggesting that President Trump was thinking of starting a war with China, actually raised the possibility of starting a war by his actions. Miley’s action may be the reason why diplomatic relations with China seem to cool abruptly. One is left to ponder if Milley is a traitor, a total idiot or both.

What will become of this, nothing. Milley will pin a fifth star on his collar and declare victory in Afghanistan and shirking the President in the mean time. It's good times to be a dictator in the United States with allies like China. We have no government we the people are being had along with being pushed aside.

Just another opportunity for feckless Republicans to issue tough statements and stamp their feet in indignant disgust. As with all his other Ivy League co-conspirators, absolutely NOTHING will happen to this elitist joke of a military general.

FTA: “Twice in the final months of the Trump administration, the country’s top military officer was so fearful that the president’s actions might spark a war with China that he moved urgently to avert armed conflict.” So...the "fearful" Milley was so desperate to "avert armed conflict" sparked by Donald Trump, that he saw taking his concerns to CHINA FIRST as the proper response? What if instead, he FIRST went to our own agencies including the FBI, CIA, NSA. etc? What if he went to elected leaders, primarily Democrats but some Never Trumpers in the GOP, and/or the VP? Did he run his planned warning past the Trump State Department? Who advised him? What if he went to governors in search of a way to "prevent nuclear war" by rigging the election in favor of the dementia patient? Sounds like a crackpot idea for sure. But Milley warning China FIRST, all on his own is just as preposterous.

# 1, Nasty Pelousi needs the same treatment. For some reason though I believe Milley had a long list of supporters and with all these top names I would not be surprised if there will ever be an inquiry. If Woodward's book is to be believed and he can produce 'sources' that can verify then we are on the right track..... I am certain all of these dirt bags are phoning each other to cover their rear ends since the news broke with these allegations.

I refer you to the Peter Sellers movie "Doctor Strangelove or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb." IMHO The mad general portrayed in said movie IS General Milley. Perfecto. Wildly funny. Not so in real life. In 2021. I saw it while in the Navy and it was made even funnier since most officers were of the same ilk. Milley should resign. He should be tried for sedition, treason. He almost got his military coup(?) Pelosi should be put on trial. The whole bident admin ... well not possible. Truly sickening. I heard that Milley gave orders to his military WH staff, lining the men up, going down the line like an inspection, making sure all of his staff accepted his orders, getting into their faces to make sure. Hows that for the Mao reading general. Pfft. Gettem all, if you please.

You never want the enemy to know your real intentions when it comes to war. The Chinese Communists know that, so if it is true that Milley went behind Trump’s back and told them that the USA was not going to launch a nuclear attack against China, and that if Trump tried to launch such an attack, that he, Milley would warn the Chinese Communists of the proposed attack beforehand. If that happened you can bet that the Chinese military scratched their heads and figured that they had some real choices to make, because what if the American General Milley gave them misleading information, and in essence the Americans were really planning on launching a nuclear attack against China? Should the Chinese wait to receive such an American nuclear attack,mor should they use their option to launch an immediate first strike nuclear missile attack against American cities. What if that happened? You can bet that the principals involved on the American side, obviously Pelosi and Milley, and yet unidentified Democrats, if they had survived such a Chinese first strike nuclear attack would be out there “gaslighting” the American people and blaming Trump. Remember Trump is the only modern US President who did not involve the USA in a foreign war and who tried during his term to negotiate the USA out of all foreign wars especially in the Middle East. In Asia, Trump held high level negotiations with both China and North Korea with the objective of attempting to establish fair free trade agreements with China that favored the USA and for North Korea to refrain from developing nuclear weapons and long range nuclear missiles. Both China and North Korea knew that Trump had no intention of launching any sort of nuclear attack anywhere in Asia as he is a businessman at heart and not a career warmongering politician. When Trump arrived in DC after being elected, Trump was immediately cast as an “outsider” and a one man show, by the “insider” politicians, bureaucrats and their media propagandists on both sides of the aisle, who the leftist, liberal, and socialist Democrats, along with the establishment Republicans, both groups who make up the so-called DC “UniParty” and the so-called “Interagency” made up of the super bureaucrats also called the “deep state” or the “swamp” absolutely did not want Trump in the White House, and since then has made every bogus, false, fraudulent and politically based allegation and charge against Trump that they could think of, none of which were based upon true facts, including this latest revelation created by Pelosi and Milley to sabotage Trump and his administration right to the end of their term in office. You can bet that just about every high level appointment made by Trump, including Milley who there is no doubt is a liberal Democrat now that Milley has flown his true political colors, as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff the top military position at the Pentagon who is supposed to be the President’s prime military advisor, was made with the advice of top level Republican and UniParty functionaries in the Congress and is why so many Trump appointees turned out to be either anti-Trump wimpy Republicans, or Democrats of one sort or another who had to be booted by Trump.

So, really, is anyone the least bit surprised by this puke's actions? I think I was at first, yesterday when I heard it, thinking, WTHell? But, now 24 hours later it fits perfectly into the pattern that was established in 2015 by the FBI, CIA and other so-called national security agencies, with the total fabrication of the Russia Hoax; the set up by Comey and subsequently Mueller's cabal. Then followed the other continual outrageous lies against Trump and his family, the FBI's continued conspiracy by the Romeo and Juliet agents, two impeachments, a bogus pandemic, major national security leaks sold to the press everyday and a stolen election. The fact that the Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and his treasonous cabal of generals would sell out the President they served and the country, is totally in keeping with this disgusting story.

Milley’s term is about to end . If he is renominated to a second 2 year term he will need Senate confirmation hearings. Biden ( his handlers) wants to use these hearings to bash Trump and draw attention away from the Afghanistan debacle. In the end Milley will ask that his nomination be withdrawn.

Over 1,600 active and idle oil and gas wells in the county could be shuttered after the 5-0 vote by the board of supervisors. A timetable for the phaseout will be decided after the county determines the fastest way to legally shut down the wells. Among the sites is the Inglewood Oil Field, one of the largest U.S. urban oil fields. The sprawling, 1,000-acre (405-hectare) site, owned and operated by Sentinel Peak Resources, contains over half

The US, UK and Australia are setting up a trilateral security partnership aimed at confronting China, which will include helping Australia to build nuclear-powered submarines. The initiative, called Aukus, was announced jointly by President Joe Biden and prime ministers Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison, joined virtually by videoconference. They presented it as the next critical step in an old alliance. Morrison said teams from the three countries would draw up a joint plan over the coming 18 months for assembling the new Australian nuclear-powered submarine fleet, which will be built in Adelaide. The project will make Australia only the seventh country in the world to have submarines propelled by nuclear reactors.

When he was elected, Joe Biden was seen as a seasoned professional politician, someone who knew Washington, knew how government worked, and knew Congress well enough to break the logjam on the Hill and get things done. At least, that’s how Biden was sold to the American public. Not surprisingly, that’s not the way things have worked out. Biden has made a bunch of rookie mistakes — unforced errors on the economy, Afghanistan, and now vaccine mandates — that threaten to derail his party and presidency and bury the Democrats in a Republican landslide in 2022.

There’s a new twist to the reporting about the actions of Gen. Mark Milley and his alleged contacts with the Chinese that have raised so much concern. As we previously reported, it’s completely improper for Milley to have had any contact with them without it being at the behest of the president and the reporting said it clearly wasn’t. Now Axios and Josh Rogin, who is one of the few good reporters at The Washington Post, are reporting some interesting information. Axios is saying that there were two calls — one on October 30 and one on Jan. 8.

Yesterday, most of us were stunned to find that in the aftermath of the January 6 disturbance on Capitol Hill, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark “White Rage” Milley had contacted his Chinese counterpart to promise that he’d give him advance notice of any attack on China carried out by an unstable President Trump. This is from the Washington Post’s promotion of the book “Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. Twice in the final months of the Trump administration, the country’s top military officer was so fearful that the president’s actions might spark a war with China that he moved urgently to avert armed conflict.

“Americans’ views have dimmed on the way President Joe Biden is handling his job as president.” So begins the report from Quinnipiac University, on Biden’s job approval rating. And it just keeps getting “better” — this week, with Secretary of State Antony Blinken testifying in both chambers of Congress about Biden’s Afghanistan debacle, only opening his mouth to change feet. A new national poll from Quinnipiac has the beleaguered president’s job approval rating underwater, with 42 percent approving, of Biden’s overall job performance, compared to 50 percent who disapprove.

Earlier this month, President Biden signed an executive order with a lofty goal: he wants over half of all vehicle sales to be electric vehicles by 2030. The CEOs of GM (GM), Ford (F), and Stellantis (STLA) attended the White House event and threw their support behind the measure, pledging to put billions of dollars into manufacturing EVs and to work with Democrats to have American workers produce them. “There’s no turning back. The question is will we lead or fall behind in the race for the future,” Biden said on Aug. 5. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D., Mich.), who represents

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Despite warnings the race would be close, California Gov. Gavin Newsom decisively defeated efforts to kick him out of office, a win the Democrat cast as an endorsement of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and his party’s liberal values. Newsom cruised to victory in the recall election Tuesday, boosted by healthy turnout among an overwhelmingly Democratic electorate, ensuring the nation’s most populous state will remain a laboratory for progressive policies. With an estimated two-thirds of ballots counted, the “no” response to the question of whether to recall Newsom was ahead by a 30-point margin.

President Biden is standing by Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, despite accusations he committed treason during the final weeks of the Trump administration by reassuring his Chinese counterpart that then-President Trump would not attack Beijing. “I have great confidence in Gen. Milley,” Biden responded to reporters on Wednesday, moments after press secretary Jen Psaki appeared to excuse Milley’s alleged conduct as acceptable in the “context of this period and time in history” given that he did so while Trump was in his final days as commander in chief and amid the backdrop of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
