Milley OK to China call

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 9/15/2021 7:28:49 PM

Then-President Donald Trump‘s last secretary of defense said Wednesday that he did not sign off on a call from Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to his Chinese counterpart days after the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the US Capitol. Christopher Miller, who led the Pentagon on an acting basis between the 2020 presidential election and the inauguration of Joe Biden, told Fox News that Milley’s action “represents a disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination by the Nation’s top military officer”.The Jan. 8 phone conversation between Milley and People’s Liberation Army Gen. Li Zuocheng is detailed

It seems that this General wanted a coup against President Trump even as Trump was leaving office. These people have a mental disorder, and it also seems that they can't be removed from their positions of power. We are in big trouble.

The fatso general needs to be arrested as a traitor and tried, then punished like Pvt. Slovik when found guilty, since he has admitted publicly what he did.

Sec State, Sec Defense, NSA office in the Whitehouse, ALL should have been consulted, read in, appears they were never even "Informed". Records had to be sealed, erased, the dozens involved sworn to secrecy, and facts/events intentionally hidden from ALL actual Cabinet members and the Prez/VP. From BEFORE the election, for months, then again three weeks before Biden's being sworn in. At Pelosi's behest...was Schumer involved too? They Impeached Trump over a phone call to another Nations Leader, even with the transcript in hand showing he said NOTHING that was not legitimately in this Nations best interests...then impeached him again..over a speech they had transcript in hand showing he incited NOTHING, that in fact called for Peaceful petition to investigate anomalies in the casting/collection/tabulation of votes..then tried to try him even AFTER he left office. This Coup/Insurrection/Sedition was years in the making, years in the process dozens of political actors, in concert, colluding, conspiring, committing acts...covering for each other. Now THEY are claiming it was because they feared TRUMP wouldn't accept the "Outcome of an election"?? That finger they point has three pointing back...

FTA: "'The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is the highest-ranking military officer whose sole role is providing military-specific advice to the president, and by law is prohibited from exercising executive authority to command forces,' [acting SecDef] Miller said Wednesday. 'The chain of command runs from the President to the Secretary of Defense, not through the Chairman.'” Talk about Republicans in Congress not doing the right things, neither Miller or the president took any action against Milley. Milley had already challenged Trump on the walk across the street to the church incident and his remarks to the press, which he managed to come away from unscathed and apparently eager to push the envelope even more. I never had the sense that Trump had control of his DoD, DoJ/FBI, HHS/CDC, DHS, or State Department/CIA. He delegated great policy ideas to chumps that never intended to implement the president's agenda. By the time Milley actually met the elements of crime of Treason, it was pretty well established that insubordination was tolerated in the administration.

Not exactly the same thing in execution but perhaps the same results in the short and medium term. Remember the attempted coup of Gorbachev in the 90s and the installation of Yeltsen soon afterwards. Yeltsen ended up destroying the USSR and the behest of us. We may see the dismantlement of America with what is now happening. There is no one to unite this country like Putin did in Russia and as much as I like Trump I do not believe he has the ability to bring this country back together after it’s broken. So really you are looking at the rise of the Bolshevicks and we all know where that leads.

Article is correct in that the Joint Chiefs are in the administrative chain of command, responsible for readiness of the military to execute missions. The CinC turns to his unified operational commanders (Northern Command, Southern Command, etc) to fight the battles. In the case of China, that would be the Indo-Pacific Command - the 4-star sitting in Camp Smith in Hawaii.

It is worse than we could ever had imagined. While Republicans, thank you Paul Ryan, were doing nothing to support the Trump administration, democrats were working diligently toward a coup to put them in power forever. The actions done by this corrupt party has been treasonous on so many levels and I predict that there were others going on as bad if not worse than Milley’s treachery. Now, they have the luxury of knowing they have succeeded and will never cede power. Who is going to stop them? Republicans? Supreme Court? The ballot box? Seriously, give a girl some hope here. All that is left is rebellion and democrats are licking their lips as the possibility of coming down hard on anyone who dares even peacefully protest. Look what they have done to the J6 protestors. Their behavior is a textbook example of a political prosecution. Where is the outrage from our leaders? This rogue government is just getting started. Better buckle up, it is going to be a very bumpy and dangerous ride.

#11 above posits an interesting question: "When is the general going to call China about the current senile president?" Well, Xiden's dementia is so publicly obvious that little need be disclosed to China. However, there may indeed be snippets of information on just how and when Xiden will be nudged out of the White House that none of us know, but which Milley (or others) know, and may want to share with the ChiComs. Milley is in hot water because the NSA-type monitoring of overseas calls, texts, and emails picked it up. News articles report that some foreign entity picked up the call and listened in--or recorded--one of the key calls made by Milley to his ChiCom counterpart. Now ask yourself: if Milley or other traitorous and corrupt actors were anxious to share other information concerning Biden and his administration, surely they'd be fearful to send it by phone call, text, email, or snail mail. Other than these, what other option can we imagine they might rely upon? Well, why not have direct delivery of messages by travelers--spies or others. Now ask yourself: Why did Kamela Harris travel to Vietnam? Obviously, one reason was to distance herself from Joey while he was imploding. Could there have been other reasons? Could she have been carrying a message for the Viet Cong to deliver to her "Chinese counterpart"? Is it possible she may have met briefly with a ChiCom politburo member or spy while visiting Vietnam?

What "deadly Jan. 6 riot" are they talking about??? Did you see a deadly riot?? I didn't. I saw a few vandals force their way in by breaking a window or two, and a dozen or so instigators, but I mostly saw peaceful people being waved into the building by friendly policemen. There were a few incidents of violence and sadly a few folks died (most from natural causes) as I said, but hardly it was what I would call a "deadly riot" . That said, Miller didn't give the go ahead and former DNI John Ratcliffe didn't either. Ratcliffe said he wasn't even aware of a call. Milley apparently lied about the intelligence agency being in on it.

I have seen a few comments tying Pelosi and perhaps Schumer into this story, but none of them seem strong enough for the depth and significance of what apparently occurred. It seems pretty clear that we have actionable evidence that the Speaker of the House colluded with military leadership to usurp the powers and authority of a duly-elected President, to unlawfully assume control of national defense policy, and to cooperate with recognized enemy entities in the conduct of a military coup against the lawful leadership of the United States. Further, the Speaker apparently had foreknowledge of these activities through direct conference with the military conspirators without reporting the facts to anyone, in a situation where she stood to directly gain authority by the conspirators' actions. I am waiting (but not holding my breath) for our honorable representatives to start picking this apart in earnest, because Queen Dumpsterfire SHOULD be in a world of hurt at this point, especially when you start adding her antics and policy postures of the last few years on top of this mess. Hearing this new information certainly should put a fine point on any thinking person's suspicions about her involvement in the multiple WAVES of pure evil that have been pouring out of the Demo party. In a sane country, her LAWYERS would be lawyering-up.
