Told Military Officials Not to Take Orders From President Trump In Real Coup.
The Democrats have made treason pedestrian.
The news gets bigger and more profound every day, so much so that it’s like a kick in the belly and you lose your wind. Today’s story about Miley is unprecedented in the apathy of the body politic. It’s not even news, not really. None of it is, least of which 13 dead Marines the Democrats left behind. I’m just so ashamed and worried.
Joint Chiefs Chairman Army Gen. Mark Milley single-handedly took top-secret action to preempt then-President Donald Trump from ordering a military strike or launching nuclear weapons, according to a new book. According to Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Milley was worried that after the January 6 Capitol breach, Trump could “go rogue” and called a secret meeting on January 8 with senior military leaders. During that meeting, 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 write-up of the book by CNN.

The book also revealed that Milley had two back-channel phone calls with China’s top general to reassure him that the U.S. would not attack, even promising to give him a heads up if it did.

According to a write-up by the Washington Post, Milley — four days before the 2020 presidential election — assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, that the U.S. would not strike.
Tucker Carlson on Tuesday unleashed one of his darkest monologues ever on the dangerous state of “democracy” in the United States.
“We almost never use the term Deep State on this show,” Tucker Carlson led in. “There’s something about it that sounds paranoid, even a little nutty. As of just a few years ago you mostly heard the phrase from relics on the far left, the kind of people who lecture you about the United Fruit Company and the toppling of Mossadegh.”
“The term then and now suggests that our democracy is fake,” he went on. “Elections and domestic politics are just a sideshow no matter who you vote for in the end, the same people still run everything.”
“That is a pretty dark understanding of the American system,” Carlson continued. “If you are a normal person who grew up here it is the last thing you want to believe about your own country. It seems crazy.”
“Then you read stories like this one,” Tucker said. “According to reporting this summer, in the days after last November’s election, Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, held a meeting with senior military officials at the Pentagon.”
“Milley wanted to inform them of what he described as a ‘serious threat’ to national security,” he went on. “A threat so grave it imperiled, quote, ‘the stability of the republic.’ That threat, Milley said, was the sitting President of the United States. Donald Trump had dared to question the election results. For this, Milley explained, the U.S. military might be required to use physical force against the U.S. president.”
“We’re the guys with guns,” Milley said. “Apparently he had been preparing for this moment,” Tucker added. “Milley had had conversations with the head of the CIA Gina Haspel and the NSA Paul Nakasone. He had also spoken directly to Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Donald Trump’s chief political rivals.”
