Calls for Milley to be fired and Blinken to resign getting louder
quote:

MILLEY IN PERIL: Bob Woodward’s latest book, Peril, has at least two blockbuster claims that could end the military career of Joint Chiefs Chairman Army Gen. Mark Milley. The book, co-authored by Washington Post reporter Robert Costa, describes two problematic episodes at the end of the Trump presidency: one in which Milley appears to give an illegal order to countermand the president's authority to launch a nuclear strike, and a second in which he purportedly told his Chinese counterpart he would tip him off if President Donald Trump were to order an attack on China.

THE JAN. 8 CALL: The authors have obtained a transcript that provides new details of the call between Milley and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi two days after the assault by Trump supporters on the U.S. Capitol, in which Pelosi says the president is unhinged and dangerous. “He’s crazy. You know he’s crazy,” Pelosi tells Milley. “He’s crazy and what he did yesterday is further evidence of his craziness.”

Milley replies, “I agree with you on everything.” The book details how Milley summoned senior officers to review the procedures for launching nuclear weapons and saying he needed to be in the loop, even though he is not in the chain of command.

“I can guarantee you, you can take it to the bank that there'll be, that the nuclear triggers are secure and we're not going to allow anything crazy, illegal, immoral or unethical to happen,” he tells Pelosi on the call.

“How are you going to do that?” Pelosi says. “Going to take the football away from him or whatever it is?”

SHOULD A SINGLE PERSON BE ABLE TO TRIGGER NUCLEAR ARMAGEDDON?

‘PULLING A SCHLESINGER’: The episode is portrayed as Milley — who feared Trump had gone into “serious mental decline” after losing the election — taking extraordinary steps to prevent an unstable president from launching a nuclear war, in the same way that 1974 Defense Secretary James Schlesinger ordered the military to check with him first if then embattled President Richard Nixon ordered a nuclear strike.

But whatever his motivation, Milley’s order sparked immediate calls for his removal. “General Milley has attempted to rationalize his reckless behavior by arguing that what he perceived as the military’s judgement as more stable than its civilian commander,” wrote Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio in a letter to President Joe Biden demanding Milley be fired . “It is a dangerous precedent that could be asserted at any point in the future by General Milley or others. It threatens to tear apart our nation’s longstanding principle of civilian control of the military.”

A sloppy current screenshot of Milley headlines. Notice WaPo to see where this is leading.

This is leading to Milley resigning but he will retain pension. A poster here nailed this spot-on they are cheer leading treason of the Chairman of the JCS because OMB.

IMO they got together and decided they will say Trump was mentally unfit.

They tried to bring Pence into it to claim Trump was unfit. Bottom line Tucker Carlson is using the term deep state.

Notice even the Wash Examiner is leading to reform of a single person with the football decision.

They will get rid of Milley and reform this. Also a democrat is pissed that Austin was too busy to answer to his committee regarding Afghanistan...

Not until the gaggle of late night talk show hosts, as well as those old crones on The View start in with this effort.

If they stay silent, it's business as usual.

It sounds to be like Nancy Pelosi was involved in a seditious conspiracy also. and that is a felony. She should be arrested and charged.

There needs to be a serious investigation into this and just who was involved. This WAS a coup attempt plain and simple. Who was involved? What did Pence know and when did HE know it?

HERE is an opportunity to let the nation know who the Dems really are, especially if the GOP gets the gavel back in 2022. Call hearings haul some people in front of Congress and destroy Pelosi.

Liberals defense of this is disgusting. They tried to hang Trump over asking for a joint corruption investigation, but unilaterally deciding that your CIC is suddenly "insane" and breaking chain of command in the most treasonous way is somehow appropriate?

And who TF honestly believed Trump was going to start a Nuke War with China in January? Give me a fricking break. Thats completely made up!

The left will espouse the "it's wrong, but I understand why he did it" bit, but in the end, there's no way for them to capitalize on it, so he's fricked.

By capitalize, I draw reference to how the Secretary of State, etal, attempted to gaslight the public with their "evacuation" of citizens from Afghanistan, while leaving American citizens as hostages.

Pelosi was also in on it. She needs go just as well.

Instead of resigning, it should be execution.

re: Calls for Milley to be fired and Blinken to resign getting louder
I saw the MSM news clips on this. They will use J6 and say Trump was unfit as he called for an insurrection.

The two new guys Trump brought in, in the end even called out Trump as nuts for not denouncing the cringe movements that led to people thinking they could zip tie arrest and hang Pelosi & Pence.

They gas lit the ever loving tarnation out of Trump. I see in the headlines it says Trump calls Milley a dumbass.

I adore Trump's bluntness but dumbass does not fit at this juncture. It almost sounds endearing like guys chiding each other. It does not reach the seriousness of this situation.

Take dumbass out and it is a great statement.

so either Nancy's office recorded it, Milley recorded it or the NSA recorded it. Who recorded it and sent it to Bob Woodward?

re: Calls for Milley to be fired and Blinken to resign getting louder
I still have a hard time believing anything Bob Woodward writes, he is a known liar. I do not have a problem with calling Milley a piece of crap but consorting with the enemy, just seems so odd for a General. I mean this could be one of if not the biggest story in 80 years. But then again I believe there have been 2 huge espionage cases since August 2020 that have gone radio silent.

re: Calls for Milley to be fired and Blinken to resign getting louder
Damned good question. Woodward is a tool stuck on Nixon. IMO both political parties got down and dirty in the weeds and spied on each other. Woodward got lucky.

Also compare & contrast what Nixon did to the entire govt apparatus spying on Trump, reporters, congress and so on...

I think it boils down to what the CTH has been saying: Ihe intel in too many govt agencies are so bloated they are at war with each other over Afghanistan.

They are all in a bubble & so arrogant that they are inept within their own powers-creating a typical dem/swamp cluster frick.

We know they all know every word every one of them says. Why now? Could it be the mini war within combined with Biden does not have the nads to fire anyone?

So they slowly release dirt on whomever they have known about for awhile...

If it is true that Milley coordinated with an adversary like China and would have given them warning of a strike, than that is high treason and should be punishable by death. I don't give a shite who the POTUS is even if it is this dumbass in the White House you as a General do not coordinate with an adversary and give them advance notice of a strike. It obviously would have to be proven ,but yeah that is definitely punishable by death.

I said from the get-go that IF (big IF) anything happens, Blinken will be the fall guy. He's a complete dufus and Biden can just replace him with someone even worse.
