Coup: Milley Secretly Took Control of the Military, Despite Not Being Elected to Any Office;
Totalitarian Press Cheers

chuckrossmarkmilleytreason.png

This is a coup. This is treason. And there must be a court martial and martial justice.

Which should include some wood and a rope.

Instead, the media mega-corporations will give him a seven-figure "advance" they do not expect to recover.

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.

"Got it?" Milley asked, according to the book.

"Yes, sir."

'Milley considered it an oath,' the authors write.

He was encouraged in this military coup by someone else not elected president: The demented socialist paranoiac Nancy Pelosi.

...

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."

...

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.'

Some might say that Milley seizing control of the military away from the duly elected president is "overstepping his authority."

But not Bob Woodward, CNN, or former National Review "conservative" reporter Robert Costa.

Now: Check out the reason for Milley's coup.

Trump planned to order troops out of Afghanistan, and Milley, the supposed military advisor, decided that the president should not have the power to direct the armed forces.


Milley's fear that Trump could do something unpredictable came from experience. Right after Trump lost the election, Milley discovered the President had signed a military order to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan by January 15, 2021, before he left the White House.

The memo had been secretly drafted by two Trump loyalists. No one on the national security team knew about it, according to the book. The memo was eventually nullified, but Milley could not forget that Trump had done an end run around his top military advisers.

Trump "attempted an end run around his top military advisers."

By deciding to ignore the advice of this advisers.

Which the advisers decided was illegal and could not be done.

So they're not advisers -- the President is merely an adviser.

The Deep State military coupists are the actual deciders. The elected officials are merely there to advise the Deep State military coupists, who will, of course, ignore the "advice" of democratically-elected officials.

Update: Even Lt. Colonel Bearclaw says Milley usurped civilian control over the military and must resign.

What alarms me is the notion that this strutting, failed peacock is even nominally in charge of anything. Milley and his command staff deserves to be up on meat hooks.

Wait a sec. Milley told his Chinese counterpart he would warn him of a pending attack? Wow.

I'm not surprised by it, but I'm always surprised at how cheap it is.

Remember when it came out before the election that Biden had only cost the Chinese $10M? That's not even 20 year old talented QB getting drafted in the first round money. That's not sh*t nowadays so far as "wealthy" goes.

It's almost like they WANT to help, and they're giving a discount.

50 Well, we've had the coup. It was a stealth one but all the same. This is probably how they got away with stealing the election with the aid and abetting by the military in some way. Or at least the promise not to allow Trump to try and seize the voting machines.
Our votes no longer count. I don't care what anyone does from now on. This revelation by the military indicates that no one will be allowed to assume the office of President without the approval of the Praetorian guard. (which is why they've been brought into the foreground) and the leaders in the House and Senate.

Don't forget that I would bet that McConnell was also advised of this action of Milley's and was APPROVED.
This also answers why Pence went along with the certification; he was told that that was the only action he would be allowed.
Is this also why the scotus has been so schizo of late? Have they been told off by the military?

My God we're sitting around talking about stickers saying f joe biden and the country is already a 3rd world dictatorship behind the scenes. And it's coming out NOW as a warning about future 'elections'. Any elections that are not approved by the Military will be sidetracked.

No they cannot, that is a common misconception. If they aren't in your chain of command, they can't issue orders.

The Admiral in charge of all the base Commissaries can't issue orders to the fleet. The JCS has less authority than the Commissary admiral.

98 There has been a lot of talk about whether or not the catastrophic fuckup in Afghanistan is treason. I am on the fence about that.

This, though, is unambiguous. If it is true, this is black-letter treason. This country has hanged men for far less than this. If Milley was that worried about Trump's "mental state" then he can go chat with the cabinet ministers about the 25th amendment. That's why we have it.

Blocking the armed forces, disobeying orders, withholding weapons command, setting up back-channels with an adversarial nation, promising to share intelligence (and likely *actually* sharing intelligence) with adversarial nations, etc., is obviously treasonous. This is not what you do when you're "worried about the president's mental state." This is what you do when you're an enemy actor and double-agent.

Milley needs to go all the way. Not just fired, but prosecuted and then executed for treason. Yet we all know he won't be. He'll still be a big shot and he'll retire with full pension and be taught in the war colleges.

Years ago I was in a production of 1776. A few of us from the cast have been in touch on a regular basis, and every few months get together for a lovely dinner. Today I got an e-mail saying, "hey, I expect we're all vaccinated now, so let's get together."
So, since I am going to reply that no, I have not taken the Kung Flu shot, have no intention of doing so and know that masks are useless (I shall be a bit more diplomatic), I'll get a note back saying, "sorry you can't join us, but we can't take chances."

What was Milley doing between January 15, 2021 and September 14, 2021 and under whose authority was he doing what he was doing? Joe Biden? Jill Biden? Valerie Jarrett? Nancy Pelosi?

The moral fiber and innermost sense of right and wrong are now different (if not nonexitent) from those men of the past. The people in the higher echelons of the military were seeded there by Obama before the 2012 election and prepared and trained before the 2016 election.

We're not doomed. We're already dead as a country or nation.
we're now just a group of people under the control of those who have most of the money, most of the property and all of the media and politicians. Yes all. I'm now convinced that even those who speak out are doing so to cause people to have hope that we can actually regain the country.

167 The most over-looked part of this is how delusional this cockpopper Milley must be to think that Trump -- who tried to safely withdraw from foreign military conflicts -- would start a war (!) on his way out the door. Either Milley is a completely delusional lunatic or he lied to make up an excuse to seize power.

True or not, this will work to Dem advantage. What patriot would sign up or stay in, knowing the command structure doesn't work for the US, but the Chinese?

Stuff like this will be more effective than any of their draconian investigations of MAGA troops for the end-goal of Party-loyal armed forces. Just a few more years of this kind of stuff, and they'll have a military they can count on for, you know... the thing.

Yup. It is a bit strange living in Idaho where many people I live are more right wing(?) than me. I have two people I interact with on a daily basis who have believed, since the election, that Trump was going to be installed. But I have known from the beginning that that was not correct, that it was just an attempt to keep 1%? 5%, 10% of the people waiting patiently, instead of going crazy.

That's a pretty easy thing to say when it isn't your neck on the line. As it is, Trump is being hailed at every venue he cares to make an appearance at, while Joe Biden is bleeding authority every day.

True, it doesn't help the poor fools still in jail, but be real. If you showed up in DC and didn't bring your gun, you were just being naive. Luckily not even the Biden DOJ can seriously try these people, and a Trump government can give them the biggest wrongful conviction remedies in history- taken from the frozen assets of coup plotters.

Likely impeachment if he went after the military staff; possibly impeachment for firing everyone he could put his hands on in the civilian government. It is what I am most grateful to Trump for, in retrospect. His administration and everything that happened since has made it very clear that the time for reform is over. It can't be fixed now, and has to be replaced.

But sane adults are now in charge, so when Biden orders the military to stand down, give $80B in weapons to terrorists, and leave Bagram in the night without informing allies ... THOSE orders must be obeyed, and 2000 Americans must be left behind as hostages.

Milley and the Boys are the terrorists ... so is CNN, FBI, DOJ most of the GOPe ...

266 The real government are the executive agencies. Trump's term showed it over and over again.

The agencies did what they wanted, lied to the executive, tried to only give him the options that they wanted, and tried to get rid of him for not following their preferred policy.

They were aided and abetted by the legislature.

The whole rotten system is not a republican form of government anymore -- the people are allowed a controlled vote as a vestige of the former system. If the people choose someone unacceptable to the government, well, the government protects itself from the people.

I disagree. Sorry, but I think that is immature thought.

Both ways he loses, but he had 4 years and in the end we saw how evil they ar.

328 @266: "The real government are the executive agencies. Trump's term showed it over and over again."

I had a minor epiphany about the bureaucracy earlier this year when watching a Hugh Laurie show called Roadkill. The Brits have an almost comical way of reshuffling cabinet positions and minister titles on a regular basis. Like Chinese fire drills at a stop light. It always stuck me as a little weird and irresponsible.

Anyways, in the show, there's a very stern woman who serves as chief of staff of the ministry he moves into, and there's a clear power dynamic that he's only nominally in charge of anything. She had seen dozens of people come and go as her bosses, but she was still there, doing what she always does.

But then it struck me. In the US, we leave our cabinet secretaries in place much longer, sometimes for an entire presidential term, but that only gives an illusion of administrative executive control. It's functionally the same bureaucratic dynamic, but on a larger scale, both in terms of time, and bureaucratic momentum; compared to the Brits.

TMZ is a crass, aggressive, trashy celebrity news outfit.

It is named for the "Thirty Mile Zone." In Hollywood, anything filmed within the TMZ, which is a circle thirty miles across centered on the studios, is considered a local shoot and the studio is not on the hook for meals, transportation, etc. for the crew. Outside the TMZ it is considered "On Location" and the studio has to pay for all that stuff.

His milquetoast series of old time jokes at the raunchy, over-the-top roast of Bob Sagat was ballsy. The "moth joke" - like a six or seven minute joke ending in an absurd punchline - told on national television was ballsy. His standup at the WH Correspondents Dinner where he put a number of big name journalists *lower* on the list than Larry Flynt was ballsy.

Does he properly understand anything other than his own best interests?

451 Cut the whole officer corps. Apparently the US still has the number of officers it had for near the end of WWII. Most of them serve to justify their existence or are grossly underutilized in their rank. I once worked with an O-6 who spent all of his time doing secretary-type work for a small engineering team as he wrapped up his career. Posted by: Joseph Tura at September 14, 2021 01:59 PM (tTRUo)

Agreed. And the civilian SES and contractor force. The Office of the Secretary of Defense for Policy is hundreds of people. What the hell do they all do? I have observed organizations within DOD created to get around the bureaucracy morphing into bureaucracies full od mid-level and senior people who literally have meetings with each other all day and make Powerpoints for the meetings they're going to have tomorrow. You could literally cut the senior officer/SES/contractor headcount by 50% and the productivity would improve.

459 "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.

"Got it?" Milley asked, according to the book.

"Yes, sir."

'Milley considered it an oath,' the authors write.


In case no one else said this above, each of those (spit) officers had the duty and responsibility to report Milley's illegal orders to Secretary of Defense, and should have also gone out of the chain of command and directly informed The President, Donald J. Trump. They are as guilty as Milley.

501 Milley is the Savior of the Nation, preventing "erratic" Trump from pushing the button that would destroy the planet. He's a hero, dammit, not a colossal fvck-up.

He went to each man, looked him in the eye and said, "Got it?" How butch! Swoon.

And not following that up with, "and so in response I have ordered our state police and local police authorities to refuse any cooperation with Federal enforcement of this decision, and have placed the Iowa National Guard on standby to assist with the defense of state authority" is why we lose.

510 "those (spit) officers had the duty and responsibility to report Milley's illegal orders to Secretary of Defense, and should have also gone out of the chain of command and directly informed The President, Donald J. Trump. They are as guilty as Milley."

We are left to wonder how long the military brass in the (politicized) Pentagon have been calling the shots directly, and/or misleading POTUS on the real facts on the ground. (CIA as well, as they run important ops ... foreign and domestic ... for whom?)

512 489 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.


This is the kind of malignant thinking that got us the atomic bomb spies (Fuchs, the Rosenbergs, Greenglass, etc.)

Posted by: Daddy Warbucks at September 14, 2021 02:25 PM (ZSK0i)


Milley and his lackeys in gold braid understood Trump no better than they did the Afghans - both the Taliban and anti-Taliban groups. That's how you lose. If Milley had told the Chinese that we're launching nukes in 10 minutes, what did Milley think the Chinese would do? Not nuke us?

517 Problem is that that cockroach Milley is just one of thousands of traitors in our government.

It would be simpler to just fire them all, tattoo their foreheads with a big black T, and deport them all to a large crematorium than root out the few loyalists.

However, that'll never happen without Divine Intervention, so let's instead pray God lets us repent, turn from our sins, and is willing to heal America (a la 2 Chronicles 7:13-14).

Might be too late; but history shows that humans cannot reform other humans.

I just got a phone call. I'm getting a new unit shipped to me and they also checked to see if I had the old one so they could get me a return shipping label.

Voting means absolutely squat. It is now fraudulent to the point that they............................THEY...............Meaning the two corrupt parties and a military that goes from this Milley maggot down to that special forces guy/girl/whatever..........No, really a guy.

536 I don't know about treason but it was most certainly sedition or insurrection if you include Nancy Piglosi's part in it. And something I find fascinating is he had no problem pulling up chocks from Afghanistan immediately when ordered to by the drooling coward in chief, but thought the exact same thing from President Trump justified him committing sedition and insurrection in company with what I assume were the other Joint Chiefs and Nancy Piglosi.

548 Vindman is effectively CIA and the WaPo is a CIA organ. So this is a CIA op against Milley.

If there are agents in the military, Congress, CIA, and FBI conspiring to commit treason, it's not over one president. What's a smarter bet, risking a court martial or waiting four years?
