Kiss another institution good-bye…
There was no better commander-in-chief to the U.S. military than President Donald Trump.
Well, to the rank-and-file men and women of the military, anyway.
To the round-assed, butt-kissing brass, however, apparently they, too, are #NeverTrumpers.
After our intelligence and federal law enforcement agencies became highly politicized under the most scandalous president in modern history, Barack Obama, now it appears as though our military leaders have joined the dark side as well.
The United States' top military officers on Tuesday condemned the 'sedition and insurrection' that took place at the Capitol last week when supporters of President Trump overtook the building.
'We witnessed actions inside the Capitol building that were inconsistent with the rule of law. The rights of freedom of speech and assembly do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition and insurrection,' Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and the rest of the Joint Chiefs wrote in memo to the force.
In addition to Milley, the memo was signed by Vice Chairman Gen. John Hyten and the chiefs of the Army, Navy, Marines Corps, Air Force, Space Force and National Guard.
The memo comes almost a week after rioters stormed the Capitol while Congress was meeting to certify Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election, forcing lawmakers, staffers and journalists to find secure locations to hide in as the mob ransacked offices, assaulted Capitol Police officers and stole property. One Capitol Police officer died from injuries suffered in the attack.
Let’s get something straight here: This is unprecedented.
First and foremost, we did not witness ‘sedition and insurrection.’ That never happened.
We witnessed the same kind of riot that we saw perpetrated in our cities all spring and summer long, sponsored by Antifa, BLM, and a host of other left-wing groups who legitimately are anarchists.
The only difference is the real estate chosen last week.
A riot is a riot, and that’s all it was last week at the U.S. Capitol Building — rioters who broke in.
Where were Milley and the Joint Chiefs when BLM rioters were encroaching on the White House last year — so much so that President Trump had to be ushered to the nuclear bunker?
Where were these politicized chumps when Antifa was besieging a federal courthouse in portland for a month?
How come only now do they speak out — when, really, they’re military leaders who aren’t supposed to speak publicly about political matters in the first place?
We lose our country, patriots, a little more by the day…
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
