An opinion piece by L Todd Wood of CD Media.
As a U.S. Air Force Academy graduate and a former U.S. military officer myself, I am disgusted with the current leadership of the U.S. armed forces.
These are political hacks, sworn to defend the Constitution, but acting to enable the totalitarian takeover of our nation.
The Capitol of our beloved America has been turned into an armed camp. Why? Because those who stole the recently U.S. general election are scared of the people and their anger.
We have been given no indication there is any credible threat of force being used against American leadership. On the contrary, official public statements have stated there is no defined threat to point to. But, the barbed wire remains.
Because it is a show of force, to threaten and intimidate any American who dares to speak the truth – we are in the middle of a coup against the Constitution and the will of the American people.
I’m not going to go into the ‘evidence’ of election fraud, as there is plenty out there. I would direct anyone to read to Peter Navarros’ detailed research here as the best source.
The U.S. military leadership was vocal about not supporting Trump’s walk through Lafayette Square and the possible use of military force against the violent domestic terrorist threat of AntiFa and BLM. However, our military leadership moved heaven and earth, a whole division of troops, to the Capitol to intimidate half the country. Now we hear the fencing and perimeter will remain permanently to wall off the American people from their Capitol grounds.
General Mark Milley comes to mind as one compromised leader to single out. He is currently the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He is enabling Pelosi and Biden’s power grab.
He was especially vocal after President Trump walked through Lafayette Square last November when the area was cleared of violent AntiFa/BLM protesters near The White House.
This appropriate use of force to allow the President to safely walk outside per his wishes (he was the duly-elected leader of our nation), seems to have piqued the General.
“I should not have been there,” Milley told the National Defense University in a pre-recorded video commencement address.
“My presence in that moment and in that environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.”
“We are unique among militaries. We do not take an oath to a king or a queen, a tyrant or a dictator. We do not take an oath to an individual. No, we do not take an oath to a country, a tribe or religion. We take an oath to the Constitution. And every soldier that is represented in this museum, every sailor, airman, Marine, Coast Guardsman, each of us will protect and defend that document, regardless of personal price,” declared Milley after the incident. The comments were widely seen to be a criticism of President Trump, whom Milley seems to have forgotten was his Commander.
The insubordination was enough for Milley to have been removed from his post. But, Trump did not…the reason is still unclear for this decision.
Recently Milley has been coordinating with Speaker of the House Pelosi who is now talking about removing sitting members of the U.S. Congress for speaking their mind, something the Left really hates.
This spectacle of sedition against a sitting President was simply stunning. The spectacle of treason against the Constitution’s guaranteed of freedom of speech is even more diabolical.
“This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike,” Pelosi wrote in a letter. “The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy,” reported CNN.
The people now in charge of our country are illegitimate leaders. They were not elected. They assumed power through a coup. Now Milley and his ilk are enabling the rise of the police state.
How does he sleep at night?
