Worse than Just an Incompetent Blowhard?

Bob Woodward’s new book describes General Milley as a hero who saved the US from Trump, but actually shows him colluding with CIA, NSA, Pelosi and China.

Woodward’s works are often questioned (unless he is writing about Republicans), but the charges deserve a close look (e.g. congressional investigation).

We do know this about Mark Milley:

  • He is a bumbling incompetent (e.g. Afghanistan withdrawal)  who bluffs his way by playing a hard ass
  • We know from Milley’s appearances before Congress and his speeches that he is a good bit left of center and extremely woke. He wants to indoctrinate members of the US military to think and vote like he does. In a recent appearance before a House Committee, he quoted many Democratic talking points – white supremacy, white rage, January 6, etc.

The questions are: how far would he go to grab power and did he act in the manner described in Woodward’s book? If so, he should not only be forced to resign, but also face a court marshal.

Stock up on popcorn and beer (Yuengling if you can get it). This could get interesting. CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the leftist media is already circling the wagons around Milley.

    I’m so old that I can remember when generals and admirals were people you could respect.

    And face a court marshal. Don’t forget the court marshal, Rand.

    Aka RT. Funny thing, they are very accurate in what they report. Its what they SELECT to report that is the issue for me. They emphasize what is wrong, not as much as what is right. Different from the native MSM who out right lie in many cases.

    Indeed. I was in the Sea Scouts (eq Eagle Scout) as a young pup. Our scout master team was a rear admiral, a couple of captains and a Marine. All retired or reserve. They did not put up with any BS but the return was we were able to spend time on boats that were just a dream at that age. When boaties were needing crew usually the troop was the first on the list. Lots of fun.

    “We are being pressured to vaccinate, and we see the large number of Vaccine complications in our ICU’s and ER’s that are going unreported. Doctors are afraid to report all of these vaccine complications even though we are clearly seeing them,” said Dr. Mollie James, an ICU (Intensive Care Unit) Doctor in New York City. “The serious risks of complications are coming from those with natural immunity who then receive the vaccine or boosters, and frontline doctors and nurses have natural immunity after a year of fighting COVID and being exposed. These vaccine complication risks coming from an unwise mandate are serious, and include increased risks of stroke, heart attack, and death.

    I would estimate 30% of the ICU patients in NYC are from vaccine complications but nobody wants to talk about that. They get coded as something else or they will ignore the fact an otherwise healthy person had a heart attack or stroke within 48 hours of receiving the vaccine,” Dr. James said. “I have seen vaccine complications in the general public, and even among healthcare providers. This is a serious problem and it’s only getting worse, and these mandates will make it much worse, but we won’t have the data to deal with it because of politics.”

    Saw this in comments elsewhere:

    Liberals: “I don’t trust the Trump vaccines!”
    But they were developed, tested and produced by using fetal cells from abortions.
    Liberals: “The vaccines should be mandatory!!!”

    That’s medical malpractice.

    Although he was against the use of ivermectin he was not opposed to its use in clinical trials.

    At the end of the video, he did encourage those that felt strongly about getting ivermectin so sign up at clinicaltrials.gov where they can get ivermectin as part of a clinical trial.

    PRP, you should really really watch the Rogan interview on Ivermectin.
    The whole “clinical trials” and “double blind studies” mantra is simply a way to get people to go away for 5 years, at which point the issue will be moot.
    It’s hard to believe anyone can be so intellectually incurious or so determinedly stupid as you appear to be on this issue. If you ever watch, pay especially close attention when they talk about the hierarchy of evidence in the medical world. And where Ivermectin data stands in that hierarchy.

    From the beginning this was a top down “one size fits all”.
    The shutdown was for 2 weeks, that was a lie. The authorities and the media did not talk about the tradeoffs (suicides, economic devastation, etc, etc) comparing shutdown to non-shutdown. Not only did they NOT talk about it, they conspired to censor any discussion in social media. They shut down everyone, even remote areas with no cases and no deaths.

    Not only did they refuse to consider HCQ or Ivermectin, they censored information and destroyed careers over it.

    They don’t consider natural immunity from having recovery. Only now are a few whispers of that topic being allowed.

    They don’t allow a discussion of vaccination for young kids. There is only one viewpoint allowed: endanger kids who have no worry about a serious case, in order to advance the vaxx policy.

    There is NOT a good faith effort to track vaccine reactions. The FaceBook group that was sharing info online was shuttered. The VAERS database is rightly criticized as missing a lot of data.

    It’s like a horny teenage boy talking with a girl who turns every conversational topic into “let’s have sex”.
    The “conversation” with government keeps returning to “let me Jab you”. There is not the slightest interest on their side of facts, science or truth. There is no willingness to consider other viewpoints or other solutions. There is only: Comply Or Else.

    Yet another data point that Biden* will only allow ONE outcome.
    They don’t care about American health. We can all die, as far as they are concerned.
    They only care about you being vaxxed. There is no other solution in their mind and they insist on it. Along with their lick-spittle allies. Like PRP.

    Conservative Treehouse:
    COVID Politics Takes a Dark Turn, Biden Administration Takes Control of Monoclonal Antibody Drugs in Order to Block Treatments in Red States and Ration Equitable Treatment

    “The change in HHS approach followed republican governor Ron DeSantis of Florida promoting the use of mAb and opening up dozens of treatment centers throughout his state. Other governors quickly took notice of the effective action plan of DeSantis in Florida and started to follow that path.

    As soon as HHS noticed the red state governors were working on a effective treatment alternative to the vaccine approach. HHS appears to have moved in to block it – thereby restricting the treatment pathway in order to enhance the vaccine approach. [HHS Announcement] Note the alarm word “equitable“:”…..

    ~ “All treatment approaches are being blocked in order to force people to take the mRNA gene therapy.”~

    Our Gov is depending on employers to do the heavy lifting of forcing people to vaxx or lose their job (or starve from being denied access to grocery stores). Interesting story about how hard this is to do. Not all employers are excited but they will be denied insurance if they disobey.

    ‘Biden Vax Mandate In ‘Chaos’: OSHA ‘Underfunded’ And ‘Toothless,’ Employers Worried About ‘Millions Of Dollars’ In Testing Costs’
    “With more than 80 million workers covered, ‘OSHA won’t be able to police every employer,’” one labor attorney told Reuters.

    Then there are the legal issues. “OSHA plans to publish an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to enact the new requirements, the White House said Friday,” per Reuters. “That measure, which is used to accelerate urgent rules, has only been used 10 times in OSHA’s 50-year history. Courts have invalidated or halted four of those rules and partially blocked one, according to the Congressional Research Service.”

    Even if the rule survives legal challenges and, subsequently, OSHA’s own administrative challenges, employers, who might have applauded a Biden administration effort to mandate vaccines, are reportedly balking at the cost of weekly COVID-19 testing — an option they must provide to workers who refuse to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.”

    “Why is this important?
    Well, the U.S. Department of Labor website has ZERO mentions of this national mandate. ZERO, nothing… nada, zilch. [SEE HERE]
    Looking at the OSHA COVID information portal, used by employers and legal execs, will show you the exact same result. Nothing. [SEE HERE]
    Notice there’s no date for DoL or OSHA delivery of any employer guidance or details. Nothing.”

    From Chris Martensen.

    A comprehensive review of ivermectin reveals that it is among the safest and most well-tolerated drugs ever introduced to the market.
    In this episode I walk through an expert review of ivermectin by Jacques Descotes MD, PharmD, PhD which was conducted in early 2021.
    In here we discuss the safety, toxicity and known side effects and drug interactions, few and mild as they are.

    I felt this material needed to be brought out into the public to help assure we are having complete conversations founded on the latest data.

    The conclusion is that “ivermectin human toxicity cannot be claimed to be a serious cause for concern.”


    A good honest review of Ivermectin.

    A bit more on monoclonal antibody treatment. Note the part about “not even federally purchased BUT hhs is limiting shipments”.

    Phil Kerpen @kerpen
    HHS has seized control of distribution of monoclonal antibodies and is restricting supply into southern states, despite ramped up production by Regeneron and GSK and Fauci himself sayin they are *under*utilized. GSK’s is not even federally purchased but HHS is limiting shipments.

    Christina Pushaw @ChristinaPushaw
    So what gives? @POTUS @HHSGov
    Why doesn’t Alabama (or the other 6 states) get a 50% increase in supply? People in Alabama need this treatment. Thousands of lives are on the line. Now is NOT the time to play politics with a clinically proven treatment

    A snip on A-stan.
    The agenda is more important than Americans … why is that NOT a surprise?

    Fund raising letter from FrontPageMag
    “23 staffers at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul signed a memo warning that the Taliban was going to take over Kabul, and evacuations needed to begin.
    That was two months ago.
    Secretary of State Anthony Blinken saw it — and he ignored it.
    Weeks after he received it, he insisted that the Taliban wouldn’t take over.

    Because Biden’s agenda was more important to him than American lives.”

    Once one CA city does it, the other left-tard cities like SF, San Jose, Berkeley, Marin County, Santa Barbara …. will all follow suit.

    Back on topic..

    The lock-step media/Left/Democrats/RINOs (massive overlap) are SUPPORTING the coup that Milley accomplished.

    IF, as seems likely, Milley keeps his job then we no longer have civilian control of the military.

    CW2 just leaped closer.

    29, it’s inconceivable now but in some future where people like us have been beaten down, the military might take over from civilian gov’t. As the economy and as recent foreign policy shows, the Dem Party is hopelessly incompetent.
    They’re wedded to their magic beliefs and truly don’t care about rational policy. Example: allowing brush to accumulate because “save Nature” and then horrific wildfires begin. They don’t care as long as there is lots of money and power at the top. The problem is, if you are incompetent, some military guy may decide you’re an extra unneeded layer that should be removed.

    A comment seen on the Internet.

    “One absolute truth:
    When Republican voters in 2016 were told they HAD to vote for Jeb Bush or they HAD to vote for Marco Rubio or they HAD to vote for Scott Walker, GOP voters responded “Hell, no!”

    When Democratic voters in 2020 were told they HAD to vote for Joe Biden, a man most of them had already rejected, they said “Sure thing, boss! Whatever you say!””

    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.

    a comment I saw elsewhere…perfect:

    General Benedict Arnold got wounded in three separate battles and submitted his resignation to George Washington twice before he betrayed our side. Both times, Washington refused to accept Arnold’s resignation and talked him into staying.

    Imagine an American general having less honor than Benedict Arnold.

    Arnold had one thing Milley does not, a sense of finality. Arnold did not weasel word his way out of it, he admitted it freely when caught. Not so much for Milley.
