so basically everyone knows what Milley did was wrong. He has no authority to do it and no valid justification.
You are just expecting that he will get away with it because it was done to Trump.
You are also likely correct in that expectation. But still doesnt make it right that our military refuses to take actions as directed by the elected President but is more than willing to take orders from Democrats in Congress.

Not quite given there was a call in January.
and a call in October 2020, pre-election and pre Jan 6.
odd that you are suddenly an expert in this topic as a few minutes ago you didnt even know what Woodward said that Milley did and asked me to explain it to you.
*an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an *established government
exactly what Milley did.
-3 ( +3 / -6 )
you didnt say they were wrong.
but saying that the DOJ is wrong
You claimed the decision was only made because Barr was in charge.
I simply reminded you that the Biden DOJ also supports the same decision.
-7 ( +0 / -7 )
it seemed to me that Trump was encouraging an insurrection.
except that the first call to the Chinese military by Milley was in October 2020.

Milley thought it would score him some cool "woke points" if he leaked to Woodward what he did. Now trying to walk it back under the cover and support of the liberal media.
Bad choice, seems a General would understand chain of command and the relationship between the military and elected officials. But then again, he is white and "doesnt understand" whatever white rage supposedly is, so he isnt the brightest.

What is your understanding of what Miley did?
What the Woodward book says he did. As every other Woodward book was presented by the liberal media as 100% true and accurate, without fail. every accusation repeated over and over as truth, for years.
Only now, liberals suddenly claim that Woodward is known to speculate, mischaracterize conversations and take quotes out of context? I never heard the IF TRUE disclaimer for anything Woodward has ever falsely claimed about Trump.
-5 ( +1 / -6 )
someone needs to look into "lawful" orders and how the military executes those. instead of talking about speculative extremes that didnt happen.
-3 ( +2 / -5 )
The Biden DOJ agreed with the Barr decision, this article even says so.
In June, the Justice Department under Biden, who won the election, stuck to the position it took while Barr led the department.
-8 ( +0 / -8 )
Well its called "Commander in Chief" and the "chain of command" for a reason.
Obviously the military shouldnt do "anything" that Donald Trump tells them to do. But that scenario has no relation as to whether it is ok for Milley to do what he actually did or not.
Are you really suggesting, Black, that the military should just do anything Donald tells them to do, regardless of the consequences?
-2 ( +3 / -5 )
he tried to reassure China that a petulant Trump would be checked if he attempted to launch a strike.
which is not within his authority to do. even if its done to that meanie Trump.
"If we are going to attack you, I will call you first to let you know?"
-1 ( +6 / -7 )
Milley and his comms team trying to divert to the “why”. Which is irrelevant even if true, he is in trouble for the “what”- just like his drone killing of a family of 10 in Afghan.
There are no special rules that make what he did ok just because he didn’t like trump.
-8 ( +10 / -18 )
Because I know of no instance in which there were racist actions taken against him
sure, of course you dont know about it, but it happened.
You just totally missed a white woman in a gorilla mask throwing things at his head and then media repeating that he is "white supremacy in blackface" over and over again.
Your media actually said a Black man was in "blackface". But I am to believe that you missed it, somehow.
Regardless, he lost and seeing as it is California, its not a big surprise nor any huge win. But yeah, Newsom won. But California lost.

we must protect the vaccinated!
umm...doesnt the vaccine do that?

Only lost 10% of what I made in 2016. Which was a lot at 6 or 7:1.
why do you care so much about me? can’t you speak about the topic?
I don’t constantly question how much you make at 7–11.

Southern California and along the coast is totally useless, guess they are happy with being subjects of the government overreach.
Northern California still some hope to escape the oppression.

It’s California, low expectations. But i see around 4+ million people really need to think about moving.

how did Trump undermine a President Biden? Did he secretly call a foreign military and make deals with them and hide it from the President but share it with the opposition?
no, I dont think so.
-7 ( +1 / -8 )
How does that make him a traitor?
calling the enemy of our country and undermining our elected President. simple.
Liberals used to be screaming incessantly about secret calls with no transcripts and people using backdoor channels without authority.
Milley had no authority under any statute to make these calls, much less secretly calling and hiding it from the President.
While at the same time keeping Pelosi and Schumer informed, of course.
"On the other hand, we know for a fact that he was speaking in a capacity, I guess, as a political partisan to the leaders of the other party," Carlson added, noting Woodward and Costa reported that the general – while not informing Trump of his alleged contact with General Li – had spoken to Sen. Charles E. Schumer of New York and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
Dont worry, people already saying that the Woodward has a tendency to be "somewhat flexible in interpretation" of events and quotations. So now and only now, Woodward is lying. But everything else he wrote that was anti-Trump, totally true. yeah, ok.

I dont think it is likely, but it will be hilarious if all the Dems just didnt even care enough to go vote.
-7 ( +0 / -7 )
"Here's an idea: let's calm things down a notch and NOT go to nuclear war" is far from treasonous. It's what leaders did quietly at several points throughout the Cold War.
and Milley is not in the position to unilaterally decide to make that call nor to decide what is said. No one elected him.
-6 ( +2 / -8 )
I will just say Dems deserve what they vote for. You voted for Biden or Newsom? You deserve every single thing their policies are doing to you. crime, inflation, border, foreign policy, all of it.
The problem is, Dems keep voting for these people, then it goes to crap. then they move to another place that is actually fine without them, and then they vote for it again. rinse and repeat.
-5 ( +2 / -7 )
so with as many unelected people involved working behind our elected President's back to undermine him and communicate secretly with our enemy, liberals would have called this a coup if Trump wasnt the victim of it.
-8 ( +2 / -10 )
so odd that there were no whistleblowers or leaked transcripts of this call to our enemy telling them of our military intentions.
-12 ( +2 / -14 )
the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state
Did the word mean something different when liberals used it to describe a Trump phone call? Or when he spoke to Putin?
how could Trump overthrow the government when he was the elected government?
who elected Milley and who authorized him to call the Chinese military? Traitor.
Liberals used to freak out over phone calls and “back door” channels. Is there a transcript of this phone call?
-18 ( +7 / -25 )
Uh oh. That’s treason, if true.
-18 ( +9 / -27 )
the "Im a guy wearing a dress" thing is all played out by now.

Yeah Blinken basically admitted these are the expected results of the Biden plan.
0 ( +5 / -5 )
how many of those during the Biden administration when he already had a vaccine that he inherited from Trump?
None of you find it odd that nearly as many people have died under Biden, with a vaccine and with a 50%: vaccinated population, than died under Trump with nothing?
1 out of every 500 Americans has died from Covid.
-5 ( +4 / -9 )
a Democratic congressman actually said that considering they didnt inherit a plan, things went pretty well.
So two questions: Why does Biden expect to inherit everything, even after 9 months after being on the job, and, if he had inherited a plan, would he have used it?
nope. so the whole thing is "moot". you are the president, you need to make a plan. your own plan, not someone else's. Blinken confirmed this disaster was the Team Biden plan.
