Mutiny at the Pentagon
I have read this 3-16-2021 “Optics” article by The National Pulse reporter Raheem Kassam and it fully supports what I and others have been saying all along about the January 6th “Insurrection” at the nation’s Capital by President Trump led supporters.
What I see is a clear violation of the UCMJ where the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark A. Milley and other DOD officials who balked at orders by acting defense secretary Christopher C. Miller directed by President Trump on January 5th to deploy 10,000 National Guard troops to secure the MAGA rally as reported by Vanity Fair. To me that spells Mutiny and should be dealt with as such.
There was an earlier report where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer contacted General Milley to restrict President Trump from being able to perform his duties as president (See my blog Unhinged Abuse of Power).
According to the Optics article President Trump insisted on the 10,000 National Guard troops while facing resistance from General Milley and secretary of defense Mark T. Esper (who was fired), as well as Democrats including DC Mayor Muriel Bowser who refused to ask for the troops as required for deployment prior to January 6th.
It is shameful that the highest ranking general in the DOD, as well as the secretary of defense would ignore the President of the United States particularly during a time of national crisis and here we are March 16th, and those National Guard troops are still positioned around the “Temple of Democracy” instead of at the southern border.
Not only is that a military mutiny, but a congressional conspiracy to insure that the pre-planned “insurrection” would trigger enough national rage to insure a second impeachment would do the job of keeping Donald Trump from running for political office in the future. (It didn’t work)!
It is not a new tactic by military top brass. I watched a report that President Kennedy faced the same issues when he assumed office. He did not want the US involved in a war in Southeast Asia and instructed his advisor to set up a meeting whereby SEA diplomats could work it out amongst themselves without the US sending troops to Vietnam. His advisor purposefully disobeyed Kennedy’s orders and before Kennedy found out about it he was assassinated and the Second Indochina War, “The American War” in Vietnam is part of our history and at a great cost.
I am no fan of politicians of either major political party. The ones in office have failed the American people. As a whole they have bowed to the god of political correctness, wavered before the god of wokeness and continue to push toward racial and class division with the intent to bankrupt our national economy.
I’ve heard quite a bit of talk about a “Convention of States” whereby the states could succeed from the nation or more directly “divorce” themselves from the federal government and create a new government that is responsive to the people. The last time that was tried America saw the Civil War and now the wokeness generation want to re-write history and simply erase the bad stuff so we will be sure to learn it once again.
It sickens me to watch the political pandering of our military leadership and the posturing of our elected officials who are bent on buying everyone off with claims of FREE, FREE, FREE!
It would please me greatly to see a military tribunal try every corrupt politician (in and out of uniform) for crimes against the nation and begin public executions so that justice is served. But alas I know that justice comes out of love, but out of hate is called revenge and Almighty God said that Romans 12:19 NIV “ Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.”
I have one thing to say for those still “Believing the Big Lie” and that is – I told you so! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
