Mark Milley

Washington, D.C.

Hot take:

I think he actually did what Bob Woodward is claiming he did. But I don’t think he did it because he honestly thought that Trump was demented and would start a nuclear war. I don’t think he ever thought that, and just trotted it out as a rationalization. In reality, Milley’s problem with Trump wasn’t bellicosity, but the total opposite. Milley didn’t want Trump to enact his staged and carefully planned exit from Afghanistan, because not being engaged in Afg any longer would deprive Milley of opportunities for trinkets. So he strapped up with his Beijing counterpart probably to create a path to where he could engage in some sort of blackmail or extortion against Trump, or at least hurt Trump’s efforts against Beijing.

For ethical and conflict of interest reasons, I’m going to be careful in what I say here.

But a certain someone and I agree that Milley, as much as a kook as he is, never believed that Trump was going to do anything like this. Where we disagree is over the matter of Bob Woodward making it all up. I don’t think this is made up. And as of now, at least according to “sources,” there are two high ranking people who are in position to know who say they’re willing to testify under oath that Milley did it.

Why you’ll never be more than a senator.

Senator Paul: “He should be court martialed if true.”
Emperor Paul II: “He should be crucified just in case it’s true.”

Trump acting Defense Secretary Miller says he ‘did not’ authorize Milley China calls, says he should resign

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-acting-defense-sec-miller-says-he-did-not-authorize-milley-china-calls-says-he-should-resign

EXCLUSIVE: Former acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, who led the Pentagon from the period after the 2020 election through Inauguration Day, said that he “did not and would not ever authorize” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley to have “secret” calls with his Chinese counterpart, describing the allegations as a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination,” and calling on him to resign “immediately.”

If Official America turn on Mark Milley and try to throw him under the bus for insubordination and running a coup, then I should remind Official America that it close to openly begged for one for four years.

They won’t do shit to him because it was Trump he was trying to undermine.

They’ve learned nothing in 2,000 years. Sulla set the precedent for Caesar.

If he isn’t shot now, it will happen again.

Tonight (Thursday) Tucker Carlson had talk show host Jesse Kelly, a former Marine, on his show.

Kelly said Milley won’t be fired, but will retire in a year or so. Milley will get a 5 million dollar book deal, speeches at 50,000 dollars a pop and a great life.

Kelly said the racial indoctrination is driving the “best” men out (white men but Kelly didn’t say it). In 10-15 years the U.S. military will be made up of obedient sheep who will do what their Communist masters tell them to do.

Might not be so bad. All their equipment will fall apart because they won’t have anybody smart enough to keep it running. (What’s left of it after they sell most of the vehicles, weapons, and ammunition on the black market.) They won’t be able to supply their troops because they’ll hit the wrong button and send winter uniforms to Hawaii and sun screen to Greenland. And, as Alex noted in one of the “open threads”, their F-16’s won’t be much good without any pilots. (Assuming they could manage to fuel and arm them.)

You need to add that one to your Slogan List, just to make sure it doesn’t get lost in a random thread.
