It’s been a really bad month for Joe Biden, hasn’t it? First the debacle of the exit from Afghanistan punctuated by the death of 13 service members some 18 or so critically wounded, and the more than 100 deaths of Afghans. then, on live TV, as if he didn’t care, and was wondering when this torment would be over, was caught on camera as the bodies were being sacredly delivered, checking his watch as each member were brought off the airplane at Dover.
Then, tryimng to evade and change the subkect from Afghanistan, he rudely addressed the American people and threatened all of us , like an exasperated parent, that if people would not voluntarily receive the COVID vaccine, he would find a way to force th,. This of course caused the opposite effect I believe that he expected and had people rejected his bullying and threats. Multiple states have vowed to sue based on the fact that this is outside presidential powers as defined in the constitution.
Of course, the media have been scrambling to cover for Joe on each of thee, with, in the later case, doctors (yes doctors) coming on television to state that Joe didn’t go far enough in his mandate threat go so far as to say people that are unvaccinated should be prevented interstate travel by air, train, or bus. Personal vehicles? I assume that’s on someone’s list as well.
Now, another brick has fallen and it’s a startling revelation that Chief of the Joint Chiefs may be guilty of treason starting under President Trump in 2020 (if not earlier). the reporting has been scthing and because it’s oin Bob Woodwards latest tome, most of the media seem to be taking it for the truth, for now. If this is true, and right now I doubt it. this is beyond anything we’ve witnessed from our military leaders and is in the realm of ”Seven Days in May”, a movie about the military attempting a coup de ta.As far as I’m aware, Milley has not formally responded but he’s going to have to because the charges are, well, beyond anything ever seen.
What bothers me about this charge is how a 4-star general could be that stupid to plot against a sitting president, knowing that pretty much everything he does, every email every phone call. is able tp be monitored by the NSA, especially since the Patriot Act. Some people though, may be so arrogant as to not believe they may be held accountable and it’s no secret that Milley didn’t care for his boss, Trump.
Still, I find these revelations outlandish and I hope they are, indeed, false. If it’s true at the highest in the military, how much further does the rot run through the top ranks?
