Tom Cotton Gets Taken To School When He Asks Joint Chiefs Chairman Why He Hasn’t Resigned

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) got a lesson in military discipline and patriotism when he attempted to suggest that Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, should have have resigned when President Joe Biden decided to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan despite military leaders suggesting some U.S. troops should remain.

Cotton, who served in the Army, specifically asked Milley why he didn’t resign in protest when his recommendations weren’t followed. To that, the general replied:

“Senator, as a senior military officer, resigning is a really serious thing. It’s a political act if I’m resigning in protest. My job is to provide legal advice or the best military advice to the president. That’s my legal requirement. That’s what the law is. The president doesn’t have to agree with that advice. He doesn’t have to make those decisions just because we’re generals.”

Milley added that resigning just because a president doesn’t take his advice, “Would be an incredible act of political defiance for a commissioned officer to just resign.”

“This country doesn’t want generals figuring out what orders we’re going to accept and do or not. That’s not our job. It’s critical. My dad didn’t get a choice to resign at Iwo Jima. They can’t resign, so I’m not going to resign. There’s no way. If the orders are legal, we’re in a different place. If the orders are legal from civilian authority, I intend to carry them out.”

The fact that Cotton would ask such a question proves his only goal was to try and trash Biden as commander-in-chief and score political points instead of giving a damn about what’s in the long-term best interests of the United States.

If Sen. Cotton is unhappy with American foreign policy under this administration, then he should toss his hat into the 2024 presidential race and see if voters like his ideas. Otherwise, he should sit quietly and be thankful we have a president who gives a damn about our troops.

Giuliani Says He’s Afraid The Military Will ‘Bomb White Supremacists’ In Order To Start A War

Proving yet again that he doesn’t actually possess a brain, former New York City mayor and erstwhile personal attorney to failed, one-term former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, is now suggesting that a new book has him fearful that the U.S. military may attack white supremacists for the purpose of starting a war.

The book in question — Peril, written by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa — reports that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley took control of the U.S. nuclear arsenal out of Trump’s hands and that he assured officials in China he would not allow Trump to launch nuclear weapons at them during his final days in office.

 

That led Giuliani to tell Steve Bannon on Real America’s Voice:

“The generals tried to take over along with Pelosi. It’s totally absurd. There’s no evidence, not even a scintilla of anything that President Trump was going to do anything with the military.”

It’s totally absurd? Not when it comes to a man as mentally unstable as Donald Trump, who incited a crowd to storm the Capitol and attack police officers who were guarding the building. A man that deranged is capable of anything.

Rudy then called for Milley to be dismissed:

“That’s completely made up — either made up or part of the warp of lies the Democrats have been using for five years now, or these people are insanely hysterical. But I mean Milley has got to go.”

Why does Milley have to go? That’s when Giuliani sounded like he’d been day drinking again:

“The man is some kind of hysteric. He may get us into a war probably against white supremacy. He’ll probably go bomb white supremacists. I mean, there’s a screw loose with this guy.”

Oh, and Rudy also wanted us all to know that Trump had every right to start a war with China for whatever reason he chose:

“Treason has to take place at a time of war. If the president were to attack China, it would be a war, and [Milley] said he’s going to help our enemy.

“Here he is telling China, ‘If the president of the United States takes action against you, I’m going to side with you against the United States of America.’ [Trump] is not talking about any retaliation against [China] and even if he was, this guy has no right to do that.”

So a military commander is supposed to follow any order he’s given by a president, even if it’s an unlawful one? That’s complete nonsense.

Gen. Milley is an American hero and deserves our thanks for holding Trump in check during the last days of the administration.

Donald Trump Military Nukes The Trump Adminstration

Joint Chiefs Chair Believed Trump Was Suffering From ‘Mental Decline’ – Took Control Of Nukes From Him

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley believed that former President Donald Trump was suffering from “serious mental decline” and took top-secret measures to assure he didn’t launch a nuclear attack or other military action according to Peril, a new book from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward and Washington Post reporter Robert Costa.

According to CNN, Milley took the action on Jan. 8, just two days after the Capitol riots which Trump help instigate with a fiery speech to his supporters:

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.

Milley then called a secret meeting at the Pentagon and told top military officials in charge of the National Military Command Center that they shouldn’t take any orders from Trump or his staffers unless it first passed through the Joint Chiefs Chairman:

“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.

Additionally, Milley also reassured Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi that the nation’s nukes were secure:

“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.”

Then-CIA Director Gina Haspel reportedly told Milley that she was worried about a coup attempt being initiated by Trump or some of his top aides:

When Trump refused to concede in November 2020, Haspel warned Milley, “We are on the way to a right-wing coup. The whole thing is insanity. He is acting out like a six-year-old with a tantrum.” Haspel also worried that Trump would try to attack Iran.

“This is a highly dangerous situation. We are going to lash out for his ego?” she asked Milley, according to the book.

And yet this is the very same Donald Trump who is considering a run for the GOP nomination in 2024. He doesn’t belong in politics or anywhere else other than a mental institution or prison. Trump is and always will be a clear and present danger to the United States and our republic.

Devin Nunes Attacks President Biden For Observing A Moment Of Silence For Our Fallen Troops

For some time now, it’s been very clear that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is a self-promoting sack of treasonous shit who will betray his own country in his demented loyalty to fellow traitors such as failed former President Donald Trump.

And yet, despite the many disgusting things Nunes and said and done since arriving in Congress, what he said Thursday — just hours after an attack on American troops in Kabul, Afghanistan — was a new level of crassness, even for him.

During an appearance on Newsmax, Nunes was asked about the terrorist attack which killed 13 U.S. service members by host Greg Kelly. Here’s what the congressman had to say:

“My guess is it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets any better. Let’s just hope and pray that — because that’s about what we’re down to now, are hopes and prayers.

“What you saw Biden do, that I’ve never seen a president do, a moment of silence with the press? I mean, what the hell is going on in this country?”

The moment Nunes was referring to is when President Joe Biden asked for a moment of silence for the lost service members:

Why would anyone have a problem with what the president did? If Trump had done that (and he never would have, because he’s the most immoral and irreligious man to ever be elected president) Nunes would have wet himself in delight and declared him the greatest American in history.

Nunes was slammed for his remarks:

Memo to Devin Nunes: Shut up, traitor.

Donald Trump Jr. Military Social Media

Donald Trump Jr. Owns Himself By Claiming American Troops Are Facing ‘Re-Education’

Much like his old man — failed, one-term, twice-impeached loser former President Donald Trump — Donald Trump Jr. needs to be booted off social media for his own good and also to keep him from spreading lies, conspiracy theories, and right-wing propaganda.

Junior’s latest self-own took place on Twitter, where he ran across an article from conservative website The Daily Caller that claimed members of the U.S. military will face “re-educating” if they refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the article, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby noted that troops who refuse the vaccine “will be offered a chance to sit down with a physician, and have that physician, communicate to them, the risks that they’re taking by continuing to not want to take the vaccine.”

“They will also be offered a chance to sit down with their chain of command, and their leadership, to talk about the risks that their objection will impose on the unit, and on the force and on their teammates.”

Be sure and note that nowhere did Kirby use the terms “re-educating,” or “re-education.”

But that didn’t stop Don Jr. for firing off this bit of stupidity:

Of course, Junior (much like his cowardly father) has never served in any branch of the military despite his claim in the book Triggered that when he visited Arlington National Cemetery, he “thought of all the attacks we’d already suffered as a family, and about all the sacrifices we’d have to make to help my father succeed — voluntarily giving up a huge chunk of our business and all international deals to avoid the appearance that we were ‘profiting off the office.'”

That was all it took for social media karma to take a giant bite out of Don Jr., who had just owned himself without even realizing it:
