The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

The United States Constitution is clear. The President is the commander in chief of the armed forces. The framers of the Constitution knew what they were doing...ensuring civilian control of our military, which meant ultimately that the people controlled the military.

Article II, Section 2, Clause 1:

The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

But three generations of a slow and steady degradation of our officers corps, primarily those who are political appointees, has created a situation similar to the civilian Deep StateTM, in which unelected and unaccountable senior officers act in a manner counter to the express wishes of the Commander in Chief.

Milley, Army chief displayed 'pattern of behavior' defying authority: former senior military official

In an interview with Fox News Digital, E. Casey Wardynski, a former assistant secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs under the Trump administration, accused high-ranking military officials Milley and McConville of making statements that insinuated they were calling the shots.
There is a long and storied tradition among honorable military men; if you disagree with your civilian superiors you have the option to resign. But you do not have the option to disobey, or to subvert civilian control of the military and conduct foreign policy.

But the current chairman of the joint chiefs seems to have done both! And he doesn't even have a long and successful record on which to base his disagreements with civilian authority. It is becoming clear that it is simply arrogance coupled with stupidity.

Milley loser.jpg

Milley is a hack. There is no other way to describe him. His military decisions were catastrophically bad, and his leadership may be even worse...pushing an aggressive post-modern lunacy on the military in direct opposition to its clearly understood function. Placing divisive racial theories at the heart of the nation's military is a recipe for disaster. But unlike many of his predecessors, he has no martial spirit, no honor, and is driven by a craven desire for power and control, which has come at the expense of many good men and has resulted in America's defeat in Afghanistan.

For that alone he should resign in disgrace, but his efforts to undermine his superior, the President of The United States, is even more serious, and requires an investigation, court martial, and if found guilty, prison.

and the Big Thing, from what I read, is Milley is only the advisor to the president, he is nowhere in the chain of command, not on nukes, not on any military actions/decisions.

Milley completely inserted himself, and others complied/agreed/CONSPIRED. All involved need to hang .. as a message to the other traitors.

35 This treatise is based on assumptions which I believe to be false.

Milley has not lost the war he's fighting. Not yet, anyway. His enemy is not the Taliban, or radical Islam, or foreign powers inimical to the US. His enemy is us. In that he obeyed civilian leadership. Not legal civilian leadership, certainly, but civilian leadership nonetheless.

This is okay.

My wife was at her GF's place in NE Texas several years ago and was helping clean up the property. She moved a plow disk and there was the biggest cottonmouth she'd ever seen. She went into the house and got the .22 rifle. She unloaded the rifle on it.

When the smoke cleared, her dad picked it up and said "Darn....that would've made a great hat ring!"

"Fuck your hat ring......."

This comes back to the people that say Trump should have fired them(along with other deep staters) to which I have always contended that if Trump had started firing as was well within his constitutional right to do he would have been dragged out of office immediately and it would have beenGOPe stooges leading the charge with Dems/Pelosi.

Oh, he's much more than just a hack, he's a dangerous, subversive political operative.

He and other like him are the tip of the spear, wrecking carnage, death and destruction for an illegitimate Junta.

I cannot understand what this is about. AT ALL.

Actually, if you think about it, it's easy to understand:

In today's America, all social mores and what used to be cultural norms and institutions are to be destroyed.

The left destroys - that is all they are capable of accomplishing. They are good at it.

I am not he, but these aren't contradictory positions. Most of the state is rogue, as least as far as legality is concerned. Pelosi and the Dems are rogues. The permanent bureaucracy is almost entirely rogue. They are loyal to themselves, not the law or the boss. If the boss crosses them, they ignore the boss. If the law demands they do things they don't want to do, they ignore the law.

The number of them involved - and it is staggering - doesn't mean they aren't rogues.

The tanks could have been in country within 2 weeks. They appear to be covering up this fubar by claiming lack of range of the aircraft instead of lack of planning. Comment?

Eh, this isn't really a shocker. When you sign your papers, you're in essence signing over your body to the needs and readiness of the military. If they consider the vax part of that, you're getting the shot.

Also, this isn't particularly well known but once you're under a doctor's care, he/she essentially becomes your commanding officer for the duration of your treatment. It's not usually pushed, but there it is.

On very rare occasion, if some a-hole was making a lot of problems about their treatment. They got to spend some time in the brig.

But, I believe that would be bad exegesis. If you think that God is going to be "Suprise! You shouldn't have gotten that shot!" I don't agree with your view of God.

The people who won't get it are clinging to this life, (This is not a criticism, merely a classification) simply in a different form than the people who have made Covid an idol of sorts.

Although that can be a deeply-held conviction, I don't think such is a religious conviction. Justices read Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists into the Constitution a long time ago. Jefferson's chief idea was "rights of conscience".

That's what I'm going to cite. My right to self-determination.

210 Milley is a LIFER, the longer a man woman or trans stays in service the more ribbons, awards and medals he gets. Most are called show up medals, it means he showed up and got an award for showing up.
A small percentage are actually meant to be something earned by deeds.

247 As originally designed the P-47 didn't even have any external racks to carry bombs or plumbed for fuel tanks. So let's blame Republic and the Army Air corps for not being crystal ball users.

The P-38E also lacked hard points to carry bombs or fuel tanks but the E went to war across the globe.

251 The Army Air Corps was fully vested into the idea that bomber formations could successfully fight their way to an enemy country's industrial heart without any fighter escort.

From there it follows that no long range fighters would be needed. Just as reasoned no interceptors would be effective so the super charger from the XP-39 was removed at AAC direction and thus castrating the Airacobra at altitude.

270 My comment about Milley "going rouge" is my gut feeling that if he saw an opening to insert himself as the transition from *biden to (presumably) Harris starts he'd take it. I predicate that on the possibility that there are strong signals and movements apace to remove Harris from the picture before she can assume the White House. Milley has demonstrated he'll do what the fuck he wants so I don't see this a "remote" possibility... unlikely, but not impossible.

Should there be a power struggle between leftist factions over the White House I do believe Milley would launch a coup; "to restore order."

I think it is necessary now to realize that Milley is likely the RULE, and not the exception, among Flag officers. This is the military we have now. Although this came out in the "Woodward" book, my understanding is that his actions were approved by Congressional civilian leadership.
In other words, he ain't goin' nowhere. And even if he was, Austin and Biden (or whoever manages the meat puppet president) would have someone as bad or worse (by standards of AoS) in there to replace him.

I don't know whether Ike was still in the Army when he ran (I don't think so, but I'm not sure), but Grant was. On the other hand, Grant's nomination was more of a party draft (that he more or less willingly went along with) than a formal decision on his part to seek the Presidency.

Grant was running to replace his own boss (who'd failed to secure his own party's nomination), but things had gotten awkward between the two men even before that point.

This means that every officer needs to have had at least one previous tour in the Pentagon or in the military staffer positions on the Hill. They need to know how the budget works and how contracting works. They need to be political.

Heard something the other day from an old pursuit pilot that flew both the P47 and P51.

He said that a pilot flew the engine on a P51 and he flew the plane in a P47.

The radial engines were designed for combat.

327 Hack is one word. I prefer 'traitor' myself. Doesn't matter, he's protected by Grandpa Dementia.

This whole two-tiered justice system -- the Left might think it works great, and for the moment it does (for them), until it doesn't.

Life comes at you fast.

328 "[t]he ratio of hospitalizations to cases was moderately lower among fully vaccinated (13.3 hospitalizations per 100 cases) compared with unvaccinated (17.1 hospitalizations per 100 cases) groups"

I'm underwhelmed.

Yeah, that is scarcely a ringing endorsement of the Coof vax, is it? My elderly cousin has the Coof. He was double vaxxed, is in a seniors' Lodge with 48 other residents, and they and the staff are all double vaxed. How did he get it, then? Now, he's not very ill, and will probably recover, but it sure looks like the vaxx is leaky as Hell.

332 "For that alone he should resign in disgrace, but his efforts to undermine his superior, the President of The United States, is even more serious, and requires an investigation, court martial, and if found guilty, prison."

Yeah, so what's the over/under on that happening?
