There is no doubt in my mind that General Mark Milley needs to be court-martialed under the most serious charges and specifications possible…
(1) It appears General Mark Milley acted beyond the limits of his authority as the advisor to the President to insert himself into the chain of command governing the control and release of the nation’s nuclear weapons.
(2) It appears that usurping or interfering with President’s Commander-in-Chief duties is either conspiracy to commit mutiny or treason.
(3) It appears that Milley, using a back-channel to speak with our enemies and undermining the power and authority of his Commander-in-Chief to suggest the President was unstable, is an act of treason that put our nation at peril. Especially, if he agreed to provide information on attack planning or nuclear posture. His pledge to notify China of a prior attack is TREASON!
(4) Classified information relating to the nation’s nuclear posture or documents released to a journalist is a criminal act.
(5) The idea that General Mark Milley would take no similar action considering the mental incapacity, and possible drug use, of President Biden is a further indictment of his activities.
(6) That House Speaker Nancy Pelosi preemptively spoke with the command staff about the mental stability of the President of the United States should be grounds for her impeachment and removal from office.
Woodward/Costa book: Worried Trump could 'go rogue,' Milley took secret action to protect nuclear weapons
Two days after the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, President Donald Trump's top military adviser, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley, single-handedly took secret action to limit Trump from potentially ordering a dangerous military strike or launching nuclear weapons, according to "Peril," a new book by legendary journalist Bob Woodward and veteran Washington Post reporter Robert Costa.
Woodward and Costa write that Milley, deeply shaken by the assault, 'was certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election, with Trump now all but manic, screaming at officials and constructing his own alternate reality about endless election conspiracies.'
Milley worried that Trump could 'go rogue,' the authors write.
"You never know what a president's trigger point is," Milley told his senior staff, according to the book.
In response, Milley took extraordinary action, and called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office on January 8 to review the process for military action, including launching nuclear weapons. Speaking to senior military officials in charge of the National Military Command Center, the Pentagon's war room, Milley instructed them not to take orders from anyone unless he was involved.
"No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that procedure," Milley told the officers, according to the book. He then went around the room, looked each officer in the eye, and asked them to verbally confirm they understood.
'You know he's crazy'
Milley's fear was based on his own observations of Trump's erratic behavior. His concern was magnified by the events of January 6 and the 'extraordinary risk' the situation posed to US national security, the authors write. Milley had already had two back-channel phone calls with China's top general, who was on high alert over the chaos in the US.
Then Milley received a blunt phone call from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to the book. Woodward and Costa exclusively obtained a transcript of the call, during which Milley tried to reassure Pelosi that the nuclear weapons were safe.
Pelosi pushed back.
"What I'm saying to you is that if they couldn't even stop him from an assault on the Capitol, who even knows what else he may do? And is there anybody in charge at the White House who was doing anything but kissing his fat butt all over this?"
Pelosi continued, "You know he's crazy. He's been crazy for a long time."
According to Woodward and Costa, Milley responded, "Madam Speaker, I agree with you on everything."
After the call, Milley decided he had to act. He told his top service chiefs to watch everything "all the time." He called the director of the National Security Agency, Paul Nakasone, and told him, "Needles up ... keep watching, scan." And he told then-CIA Director Gina Haspel, "Aggressively watch everything, 360."
The authors write, 'Milley was overseeing the mobilization of America's national security state without the knowledge of the American people or the rest of the world.'
Woodward and Costa also write that 'some might contend that Milley had overstepped his authority and taken extraordinary power for himself,' but he believed his actions were 'a good faith precaution to ensure there was no historic rupture in the international order, no accidental war with China or others, and no use of nuclear weapons.'
You know you are screwed when Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman, the NSC staffer who started the Trump impeachment inquiry with his dissatisfaction with Trump's Ukraine foreign policy, calls you out...
We owe Woodward some measure of gratitude…
For exposing Generally Milley as a cowardly, incompetent pencil pusher who committed treason who is more concerned with Critical Race Theory, “White Rage,” and White Supremacy in the ranks than the Chinese incursion in the South China Sea. And the criminal duplicity of the Democrats.
In the interests of fairness, perhaps Woodward needs to extend his trilogy to cover a mentally incapacitated President Biden?…
The fact that, if Milley was so worried and fearful, he did not go to the Trump Cabinet and seek support for the 25th Amendment incapacity removal process or publicly resign – but pledged to notify our enemies before an attack -- is a basis for a charge of treason.
There is little or no doubt in my mind that our nation was, and is, in a riskier posture with the progressive communist democrats and Obamacons in charge than ever before. One need only point to the unconditional surrender of Afghanistan, providing sophisticated military-grade weapons, money, and aid and comfort to our enemies, and the unforgivable -- leaving American citizens behind enemy lines to face capture, death, torture, and imprisonment. Not to mention their attempts to empower Iran with money and a nuclear weapon.
There is little doubt that Mark Milley is a weak, hyper-partisan traitor who needs to be court-martialed.
And God knows what the Obamacons are saying and doing to Biden to effect a bloodless coup?
We are so screwed.
