Trump Says Retiring Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley Deserves ‘DEATH!’ For Disagreeing With Him

Proving for the millionth time that he’s completely unfit for office and deserving of a long prison term, failed one-term, twice-impeached, and four-times indicted former president Donald Trump angrily lashed out at Gen. Mark Milley, who is retiring as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff next week.

Clearly triggered by a report from the Atlantic that revealed Milley and other top U.S. military officials had to try and restrain Trump from making monumental mistakes in both domestic and foreign policy, the disgraced ex-president suggested on his Truth Social site that Milley was deserving of death for daring to disagree with him.

“Mark Milley, who led perhaps the most embarrassing moment in American history with his grossly incompetent implementation of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, costing many lives, leaving behind hundreds of American citizens, and handing over BILLIONS of dollars of the finest military equipment ever made, will be leaving the military next week. This will be a time for all citizens of the USA to celebrate!”

He then added:

“This guy turned out to be a Woke train wreck who, if the Fake News reporting is correct, was actually dealing with China to give them a heads up on the thinking of the President of the United States. This is an act so egregious that, in times gone by, the punishment would have been DEATH! A war between China and the United States could have been the result of this treasonous act. To be continued!!!”

If Trump happens to win the 2024 election, expect him to turn this country into a police state reminiscent of Nazi Germany. He has no respect for any of the institutions that keep this nation safe, secure, and free.

Donald Trump belongs in prison for the rest of his life. It’s really that simple.

Twitter Erupts With Mockery After Kevin McCarthy Declares ‘We Don’t Want Disneyland To Train Our Military’

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) says he has an important message he wants to share with the American people: He will never allow the United States military to be trained by Disneyland.

You may now laugh and shake your head, because that’s exactly what Kevin deserves.

The House speaker made that very ― sorry, can’t help it ― goofy promise Friday after the chamber passed the 2024 National Defense Authorization Act, which raises pay for service members by 5.2% while also blocking abortion coverage, Pentagon diversity initiatives and transgender health care. After the Senate passes its own version of the bill, a compromise will have to be reached on the final legislation, HuffPost reports.

“We don’t want Disneyland to train our military,” the California Republican said, touting the bill’s passage in the House. He added on Twitter that the legislation “ENDS the wokism in the military.”

Other than McCarthy’s ludicrous comments, be sure and note when you watch the video the reaction of the two fellow Republican House members standing on either side of the Speaker. They look like they’re about to fall asleep or start laughing uncontrollably.

Fortunately, one thing did come out of the ridiculous legislation and McCarthy’s remarks: The hilarious mockery he received on Twitter.

Lauren Boebert Claims The Pentagon Considers Her To Be A ‘Security Threat’

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who clearly thinks she’s more important than she actually is, said today that the Pentagon considers her to be a “security threat” but she won’t “back down” in her fight against a “woke” military.

Apparently Boebert is referring to her personal hobbyhorse of suggesting that anything progressive the U.S. military does means our forces will be less ready for their mission.

For example, consider this bit of lunacy Boebert posted on her official website back in March:

“All of our men and women in uniform, including our brave sailors in the U.S. Navy, deserve to have the best tools needed to carry out their mission to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Unfortunately, liberal intersectional ideology undermines this mission. Our Armed Forces are built upon unity and teamwork, but intersectional philosophy depends on dividing people into warring victim groups. In order to stand up to China, Russia, and terrorists, our military needs to project strength, not cultural wokeness.”

What was she referring to? A pledge being used in the Navy which reads, “I pledge to advocate for and acknowledge all lived experiences and intersectional identities of every sailor in the Navy. I pledge to engage in ongoing self-reflection, education and knowledge sharing to better myself and my communities. I pledge to be an example in establishing healthy, inclusive and team-oriented environments. I pledge to constructively share all experiences and information gained from activities above to inform the development of Navy-wide reforms.”

That led to a tweet from Boebert on Saturday.

Yes, an idiot who got elected to the House of Representatives is suddenly a security threat. Don’t flatter yourself, Lauren. You’re virtually irrelevant when it comes to making policy because you’re too busy tweeting and posting videos online to get any actual work done for your constituents.

The Colorado Republican got exactly what she deserved: Plenty of online mockery.


Abortion GOP Military U.S. Senate

WATCH Elizabeth Warren Destroy A GOP Senator For Blocking Military Promotions To Protest Abortion

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) read the riot act to her Republican Senate colleague, Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, for his continued hold on the promotions of all top officials in the U.S. military simply because he doesn’t agree with the Department of Defense’s (DOD) policy on abortion.

Speaking on the floor of the Senate, Warren noted that Tuberville had repeatedly obstructed military objectives because he’s opposed to a DOD provision that allows service members to travel to other states for an abortion.

“Occasionally, a senator may object to an individual nomination, usually to indicate opposition to that appointment or to insist on answers to questions from a federal agency,” Warren began. “But that is not what Senator from Alabama is doing.”

She added, “Instead, he is blocking every single top military leader from advancing indefinitely. He’s snared all 184 top-level service members who are currently slated for advancement, and he stopped every single one of them dead in their tracks.”

After pointing out that since Tuberville sits on the Armed Services Committee, he has numerous chances to influence DOD policy, Warren thundered:

“The senator is blocking 184 top military promotions because he disagrees with the Department of Defense policy to help service members and their families access needed health care, specifically to travel to access abortion care. Now, I disagree with the senator on that issue, but if he wants to press for votes to reverse DOD’s health care policies, he can do that.”

“That is how democracy works.”

Tuberville responded by trying to blame Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin instead of his own intransigence.

“It’s not about abortion,” he asserted. “This is about a tyrannical executive branch walking all over the United States Senate and doing our jobs.”

“Now I warned Secretary [Lloyd] Austin that if he did this and changed this, I would put a hold on his highest-level nominees. Secretary Austin went through with the policy anyway in February of this year. So I am keeping my word. This was Secretary Austin’s choice, not mine.”

Hey, just because someone agrees to serve their country and put their life on the line, the military should refuse them access to a medical procedure? That’s an insult to what the brave men and women of the U.S. armed forces do for all of us on a daily basis.

Navy Vet: Trump Wanted Military To Swear An ‘Oath To Him’ And Perform Illegal Acts If He Ordered Them

Theodore Johnson is Navy veteran who is currently a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice who writes for The Bulwark that former president Donald Trump believed that being commander-in-chief meant members of the military “swore an oath to him personally” and he could order them to do whatever he wanted, even if such orders were unconstitutional or illegal.

Johnson says he came to those conclusions after reading two recent news stories:

  • The release of a draft resignation letter from Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
  • Trump’s insistence that he was allowed to keep thousands of classified and top-secret documents at his Mar-a-Lago golf resort

These historic occurrences speak to just how deeply Trump believed the military not to be an instrument of national power but an apparatus for personal use. Milley composed his resignation draft after being asked to participate in Trump’s ego-stroke theater — first by conducting a military show of force against Americans upset about George Floyd’s killing days earlier and then being unwittingly drafted into Trump’s infamous march across Lafayette Square after it was forcibly cleared of protesters. Regarding the classified material squirreled away in Mar-a-Lago, the underlying explanation from Trump and his supporters appears to amount to little more than that it was his to do with as he pleased without any regard to the potential damage to our national security interests.

Those events, Johnson continues, made it clear exactly what Trump believed when it came to a president’s power over U.S. armed forces:

These occurrences bring to the fore a troubling issue usually lurking in the background of civil-military relations: When a president believes his interests supersede the nation’s — or, worse, that his interests become the nation’s — the democratic principle of ‘civilian control of the military’ exposes the armed services to co-option as a partisan tool for domestic politics.

There have also been reports that Trump considered using the military to disperse protesters after the May 2020 killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis by police officers, which leads Johnson to conclude:

“Civil-military relations mostly held during the Trump presidency, a testament to the resilience of the institution and to our democracy. But dangers remain. If our country’s toxic polarization, hyperpartisanship, and intentional stoking of social tensions for political ends are not sufficiently addressed, we may find ourselves dangerously close to the precipice once more—and if Trump or someone following the Trump model comes to power again, we may well tumble over the edge.”

If Donald Trump happens to wind up in the White House again, this country will quickly become an authoritarian police state and the Constitution will no longer be the controlling document of our republic. All of us, as citizens and voters, must make sure that doesn’t happen.
