If the parties had been reversed, and Trump had just won a contested election over an incumbent Biden with Biden and supporters growing louder, I would have supported the military trying to moderate potential actions by Biden.

Is it right, of course not. Is it treasonous, maybe. Is it sometimes necessary to take extreme actions to ensure smooth transitions of power, yes.

Admittedly harder to be ok with what actually happened than it is with this hypothetical, but I try to hold myself to standards like this.

In case it's been forgotten, I took notes back on Jan 11, 2021

Per the New York Times:

"In a phone call to the [Joint Chiefs] chairman, Gen. Mark A. Milley, Ms. Pelosi appeared to be seeking to have the Pentagon leadership essentially remove Mr. Trump from his authorities as the commander in chief."

There is a chain of command. Milley (and you) doesn't get to do what he wants to do. "The ends justify the means" is not how our government is supposed to function.

Just when we thought it couldn't be any worse.

The Joint Chiefs should be reassuring World Leaders that Joe Biden isn't in charge.....

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley took a series of extraordinary actions after the Jan. 6th Capitol riot out of concerns an 'unstable' President Trump might undertake military action in a desperate bid to stay in office, according to Bob Woodward's bombshell new book.

The efforts included Milley as the top ranking military officer meeting with top military officials in the Pentagon two days after the MAGA riot and telling them to keep him in the process for all military actions, including the use of nuclear weapons. It also included back-channel outreach to Milley's counterpart in the Chinese military to provide reassurances the US would not strike its rival, according to the book.

Back at the end of Obama's second term, plenty of us wanted to ensure everything possible was done so that he didn't "overstay his welcome". Actions like this would have been more favorably viewed in that light.

Again, not excusing the action. Just reduces the amount of fervor on this one, for me.

Yet it didn't happen, and I am positive no one was bold enough to hold meetings or make international phone calls undermining the C in C.

Can the general and his staff be called to testify about this (that's if the Dem. leadership would permit it)?

Maybe bring it up should the Republicans take the House &/or Senate in the mid-terms?

Nope instead the Obama administration (and the alphabets) was in full swing spy mode of the Trump campaign and then engaging in undermining the incoming president. Also at the same time sending literally pallets of unmarked cash to a sponsor of terror Iran. Just think about that.

Yet I'm sure they would admit any fraud in an election......

Wrong. Only good commie is a dead commie. After you've broken their commie nose from punching their commie faces.

I'll also accept force feeding them a concrete curb.

It would be a shame if Milley and Lt. Col Fatass walked headlong into a drone strike. It would never happen because they are kindred spirits with the traitors currently in power, but it's an interesting thought.

Myanmar has some unusual parallels with the events and players involved in their military coup.


Quote:

Myanmar military coup

As Myanmar's military has taken steps to undermine the country's democratic transition, including the arrest of the nation's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi and few other civilian leaders in Burma, several governments and human rights groups across the globe expressed concern and urged the military to release all those who have been detained unlawfully immediately. The Myanmar Army, on the other hand, has said that it carried out the detentions in response to fraud in last November's general election that Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) won by a landslide. On August 1, Military Commander Min Aung Hlaing declared that he would remain in charge until 2023 when he plans to hold an election. On the occasion of World Humanitarian Day, August 19, the United Nations (UN) had also expressed its concerns over the compounded situation of conflict, pandemic, and natural disaster in Myanmar

So as opposed to a mostly peaceful protest on Jan. 6 that Dems scream INSURRECTION about, an actual coup occured by military leaders for which no one will bat an eye.

Treason. Pure and simple.

But….ironically…our best hope for taking back our country is a "takeover" of the military by a military "leader" who refuses to follow chain of command and also has the following and loyalty of the majority of the military.

Revolutions are simple. And are treasonous by nature. Until they're successful.

Pretty simple, Trump was about letting the money influence policy and peace through tarrifs. Milley is a a part of the war complex. He doesn't want peace.

Trump was President until Noon on January 21. Pointing out that one party stole the election doesn't make you not the president. The fact that crazy Nancy and the bug eyed JCS general where plotting against a sitting President over his objections to the theft only reinforces that it occurred and they were worried that they wouldn't get away with it.
