Is Pelosi Controlling Milley and the Pentagon?

2021 September 16
by bc3b

If you remember the 1964 movie Seven Days in May, it was a preview of General Mark Milley’s insurrection. James Mattoon Scott, a four star general played by Bert Lancaster,  planned a coup to undermine the President, who took a softer stance against the Soviet Union than many generals wanted.

There are only two basic differences: the Lancaster character was in the Air Force and far right; Milley is in the army and far left.

But, by all accounts, Nancy Pelosi was deeply involved in Mark Milley’s treachery. The question is: how much influence does Pelosi have over military leaders, like Milley, and civilian leaders in the Department of Defense to enforce her highly partisan agenda?

If you believe the latest Bob Woodward book, the United States has lost civilian control of its military — unless you count Nancy Pelosi who seems to have been in control of everything since she became speaker in 2019 with the single-minded goal of bringing down Donald Trump.

Everything has gone downhill since, and most dangerously at the Pentagon where a cohort of woke generals fell under Pelosi’s malign spell.

That’s the only way you can ­understand how Gen. Mark Milley could have become so deranged that he cast himself as the hero of a “Seven Days in May”-style fever dream in which only he could save the nation from Trump launching nuclear war with China to stay in office.

It’s an insane scenario, a left-wing equivalent of the most farfetched QAnon conspiracies.

But this is what is claimed in the Woodward book, titled “Peril,” co-authored by Robert Costa. So alarmed was the tightly wound general about what he imagined Trump might do in the weeks before and after last year’s election that he made “secret calls” to his counterpart in China promising to warn him if the president ordered an attack.

A lot of Republicans are demanding that Milley be tried for treason, after The Washington Post published extracts from “Peril” this week. But a lunatic asylum might be more appropriate.

A statement Wednesday from the Pentagon confirmed that Milley had made the calls to Chinese Gen. Li Zuocheng in October and January but denied that they were secret or that he was usurping presidential authority.

Yet Trump says he didn’t know about them, and neither did Chris Miller, the acting defense secretary in January, who told Fox News he “did not and would not ever authorize” the general to make such calls.

It’s clear that Milley, or people authorized by him, leaked details of his delusional derring-do to a number of authors because he is proud of his actions. His lack of shame bodes ill for the country if he remains the nation’s highest-ranking military officer as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The botched withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan over which he presided was bad enough. What’s next?

The most disturbing part of the Milley story that emerges from at least three accounts of the Trump presidency vying for bookshelf space this fall is Pelosi’s malign ­influence.

Lancaster’s character even has the same pissed-off look as Milley.

    anyone who ever served in the armed forces…or even in the Boy Scouts knows that in OUR military, and the system of government it purports to protect & defend, there is something known as the Chain of Command.

    The President of the United States is the Commander in Chief, and thus at the TOP of that Chain of Command. OUR system (which “General” Milley despises) places a CIVILIAN atop the military.

    Milley decided that HE, Milley, should be in charge of the United States.

    If Milley found out that someone subordinate to him ignored the Chain of Command, he would immediately Court Martial that person.
    Add to the act of Insubordination, the fact (now established) that Milley promised to “warn” the Chinese if we were going to take action against them, and you have TREASON on top of Insubordination.

    Imagine that someone under Milley THINKS we might be going to take action against Russia for something or other…and they contact the head of the Russian military and WARN them. Milley would have that person immediately arrested…and rightly so.

    Now we have a clinically brain-dead old man as “Commander in Chief “, and a TRAITOROUS worm as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

    Our country took a HUGE leap towards CW2. Prepare accordingly.

    Thomas Jefferson, 1787:

    “what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure. “

    Joe Scarborough was a Congressman for 6 years. That means he raised his right hand and swore to uphold the Constitution…of the UNITED STATES

    Yet the other day he screeched that “Abortion is an ENUMERATED RIGHT in the Constitution”

    And now he screeches that it is PROPER for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs…or ANY military officer or enlisted person…to preemptively subvert the United States LAW that dictates CIVILIAN control of the military be vested in the COMMANDER IN CHIEF.

    No one in the military is required to obey an UNLAWFUL order. But NO unlawful order was EVER given.

    I spent 8 years in the Marines. If I, for example, contacted someone in the a hostile military and gave them our troop dispositions, and then later claimed I did so “because I was afraid we were going to attack them without provocation“, I would STILL be locked up in Leavenworth!!!!!

    Milley is a treasonous worm…he should be Court Martialed and imprisoned!!

    Noor, the black Muslim cop in MN who blew away a white woman for no reason had conviction overturned. Still guilty on manslaughter but will be up for parole soon.

    Minnesota Supreme Ct Dismissal of 3rd Degree Murder In Noor Case Could Have Implications for Derek Chauvin
    The Third Degree Murder conviction of Chauvin now is legally deficient and must be vacated. Chauvin’s Second Degree Murder conviction is on appeal, and if that were reversed on legal grounds, the only conviction remaining would be Second Degree Manslaughter.

    Lib performer Bill Maher on PRP level panic and anxiety in Blue states.
    Maher referenced a survey on the partisan attitudes towards the virus, saying, “the question was, what do you think the chances are that you would have to go to the hospital if you got COVID? And Democrats thought that was way higher than Republicans. 41% of [Democrats] — and the answer is between 1% and 5%. 41% of Democrats thought it was over 50%. Another 28% thought it was 20% to 49%. So, 70% of Democrats thought it was way, way, way higher than it really was. Liberal media has to take a little responsibility for that, for scaring the [bleep] out of people. And the reason why I’m bringing this up is because it’s much harder for every touring act to sell tickets in blue states. They’re afraid to go out of the house. Whereas in red states, it’s all good to go.”

    The level of vaccination needed (or natural immunity + vaccination rate) has always been dependent on the R-naught values. The original strains alpha and beta had low values so 60-70% vaccination rates were probably fine, but with delta you need much higher vaccination rates.

    Essentially, 25% of the population exposed to Delta has caused more problems than 100% of the population exposed to Alpha

    Here’s AAMC talking about it and it uses the example of Measles.
    We need a 95% vaccination rate to stop Measles and get herd immunity.

    This is why there has been an ongoing misunderstanding or perception that the “vaccines are not working”

    You never get herd immunity if the vaccine does not prevent the patient from still being a carrier. The herd just ends up being exposed to yet the next variant and passes it on.

    #20 the conclusions of those headlines -as in the claims that vaccinated people are spreading covid-19 as much or even more than the nonvaccinated. I have my doubts.

    If it is true it just means there is no herd immunity and that all the unvaccinated have to get covid-19 and if they survive they survive.

    again, I think this is just more nonsense article that people take literally.

    These headlines are ideas not facts. It’s just like the claim that ivermectin treats covid19. Observational studies are just for screening. Even clinical trials are not definition. You need meta analysis of multiple studies and peer review of the data itself because so much of it can be misleading….which is why the average person has to fall back on expert committees and organizations like the FDA, CDC, IDSA, AMA etc etc.

    A Covid headline … the info release was March but the article headline is September.
    As we learn the long term aspects of the Stab, let’s hope there’s nothing horrible and common.
    Horrible and rare is sad but survivable. Mild but common is OK too.
    According to Cole, in patients with HIV, there is a massive suppression of “helper T-cells” which cause immune system functions to plummet, and leave the patient susceptible to a variety of illnesses.

    Similarly, Cole describes, “post-vaccine, what we are seeing is a drop in your killer T-cells, in your CD8 cells,”
    “And what do CD8 cells do? They keep all other viruses in check,” he continued.

    A good talk by De Ryan Cole.

    One of the points he makes is that today’s experimental vaccines were given emergency authorization because they were showing good effectiveness against original Covid. They are NOT effective against Delta. These vaccines would literally not be approved today for that reason.

    Also, there is some evidence that the severe reactions to getting the Stab is getting it
    1) while having an active infection (iow while your body is in the process of inventing natural antibodies), or
    2) for anyone who already has natural antibodies.

    The vaccine is not effective against the new variants (aka “scare-iants”). If the vaccines were coming up for approval today, they would not get approval for that reason.
    They still claim that if you are vaxxed you’ll more likely get a mild version.

    And that’s why you get stories like this:
    Vermont, with the highest vaccination rate in the country — 88% of adults at least partially vaccinated & 79% fully vaccinated — is about to set a new high in COVID cases, just 3.5 months after Fauci said with 50% of adults vaccinated we wouldn’t see significant surges.
    (chart at the link, that infection number is Up Only to the sky at this point)

    ps. if you didn’t click through on 30 the whistle blower says his hospital is running low on ICUs, and the reason is they “shut down three out of four floors of intensive care during COVID because they were UNUSED.”

    I followed instructions in this video. Also they have an app for your phone.
    It took about 48 hours to be contacted by the prescribing physician. I had proposed a local pharmacy but he emailed that a lot of pharmacies are not cooperating and he suggested an online pharmacy.

    The cost has not been charged yet.
    But the doctor consultation is no more than $64 (could be less, I’ll find out in a couple days)
    Filling the Rx cost $97, which is about double the local pharmacy’s quote but hey. Just glad to have some in the house. The meds should ship in the next 24 hours.

    “Nowhere in the US can you get a test for the presence of natural antibodies for free.
    You can get the test yourself, less than $50 if I recall correctly
    But not free.”

    The standard in house test is going to be an antispike antibody test. These antibody tests will be positive to both antibodies that a person’s body has itself produced from a prior covid infection or from a prior vaccination (both produce antispike proitein antibodies)

    The only way to distinguish the two types of immunity that I am aware of is an anti-nucleocapsid test, which can only be generated from a prior covid infection (not from a vaccine that targets spike)

    This is a SEND OUT test available at Mayo labs that probably less than 1% of doctors even know exist and it is likely very expensive as a SEND OUT test. As a send out it probably could take weeks to get back and insurance companies probably won’t pay for it.

    Don’t be surprised if you get a 500 dollar or 1000 dollar bill in the mail if you somehow convince your doctor to try to order it.

    50, duh.
    Of course you only want to find out about natural antibodies if you are currently unvaxxed.

    Before you get your vaccination shot they should test if you
    1) are currently sick with WuFlu, iow your body is in the process of inventing natural antibodies because there can be complicated pathways if your body is simultaneously fighting Covid and reacting to the Stab
    2) already have natural antibodies, in which case getting the shot is both unneeded and potentially risky for the same reason as (1)

    You could do a covid swab to see if you’re sick with covid on point #1 it that was the policy

    Point #2 though….

    Your standard spike antibody test is going to be for igG antibody, which takes about 3 months to develop meaning you’d be missing the window.

    There is a total antibody test (which is usually send out) that has both igG and igM in it, but even igM is going to have a window likely 1 week or so.
