A new book set to release next week paints General Milley as undermining President Trump in key ways. Read on . . .

Joint Chiefs Chairman Army Gen. Mark Milley single-handedly took top-secret action to preempt then-President Donald Trump from ordering a military strike or launching nuclear weapons, according to a new book.

During that meeting, Milley instructed senior military officials in charge of the National Military Command Center to not take orders from anyone unless he was involved, according to a write-up of the book by CNN.

“No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I’m part of that procedure,” Milley told them.

“Milley considered it an oath,” Woodward and Costa wrote.

The book also revealed that Milley had two back-channel phone calls with China’s top general to reassure him that the U.S. would not attack, even promising to give him a heads up if it did.

According to a write-up by the Washington Post, Milley — four days before the 2020 presidential election — assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, that the U.S. would not strike. (Excerpt from Breitbart.)

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) stated that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley needs to deny reporting that he vowed to warn China of a pending attack by the U.S. if former President Donald Trump ordered one, and if Milley does deny the story, Bob Woodward needs to produce the evidence he has to back up his story.

Rubio said, [relevant remarks begin around 3:00] “I want everybody to understand, look, you don’t have to like Donald Trump to be concerned about this, okay. You have a — the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a military leader, basically ignoring the Constitution, deciding he’s going to call a potential adversary and an enemy of the United States and collude with them and tell them, if I’m ever ordered to do something, I’m going to tell you about it first, and also break the chain of command when it comes to the nuclear codes of this country and its control. I honestly hope that tomorrow we’re going to have a statement from Gen. Milley saying this is an absolute lie. This never happened. Because the alternative is we basically now live in a country where a general can decide, I don’t like what a president’s doing, I don’t think a president is in his right mind, I’m going to ignore his warning and I’m going to collude with our potential enemies to prevent our president, elected by the people, from taking action, which, by the way, in this case, there’s no sign that that action he was trying to prevent was ever going to happen. Imagine if tomorrow, Gen. Milley decides I think Joe Biden is senile, and so, you know what, I’m not going to follow his orders. I’m going to collude with Russia and China to prevent us from acting. … It is the essence [of] a military coup, for lack of a better term. That’s what it would equate to.” (Excerpt from Breitbart.)

Milley did not deny the phone calls. He defended them. AP reports:

[Milley] on Wednesday defended the phone calls he made to his Chinese counterpart in the final months of Donald Trump’s presidency, saying the conversations were in keeping with his duties as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

In a written statement, Gen. Mark Milley’s spokesman, Col. Dave Butler, said Milley acted within his authority as the most senior uniformed adviser to the president and to the secretary of defense.

“His calls with the Chinese and others in October and January were in keeping with these duties and responsibilities conveying reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability,” Butler said. “All calls from the chairman to his counterparts, including those reported, are staffed, coordinated and communicated with the Department of Defense and the interagency.”

The big puffy bags under the eyes indicate a health problem.
What came from the mouth indicates a mental health problem.
That the behavior was accepted as a way to undermine Mr
Trump for destruction indicated on e again Mr. Trump’s enemies proliferated in the area that was supposed to protect.
God is in every a ton and event. HE says Believe..

The Church in America needs to repent for our country is under judgement! God is looking for his church to repent and stand up to the evil that is invading our country. He has allowed these evil and perverse leaders over us as a judgement. Oh, how his heart must be crying out to his church in America…you cry for justice, you cry for righteousness but look at the state of the Church. You close your doors, you tolerate sin, you don’t proclaim the authority of my word, you want to please society more than me…Woe to this generation! He is separating the wheat from the tares…his remnant will remain faithful and true. Yet, they must start speaking up more, be intentional, be bold and pray more than ever. Be filled with the power of his Holy Spirit and go forth. Action is needed…have you called and written members of Congress on this issue? Have you used the tools God has provided us with? Yes, this is treason that he committed so are you willing to be the hands and feet of Christ or are you waiting for others to do it? We are a Republic…start speaking out to representatives, be bold, be intentional, have your facts straight and be courteous but firm. God expects us to put action to our faith, no matter what the cost. His word is truth…go before Him I implore you and ask where do I as your child need to repent? Where do I need to step out in faith? What action am I to take to put my faith in action against this evil? How, in th power of your Holy Spirit do you want me to move forward?
Lord, May your Church repent and return to you so your heart will be moved to heal and restore America. We are your remnant God, we come humbly before you in prayer and honestly with all the evil that is rising around us with a fear and trembling as well. Move mightily in the Church in America to repent with like they did in Nineveh…only greater as they were pagans and we have Jesus!

Father God, this nation needs Truth, Jesus of Nazareth! We have allowed our enemy, Your enemy, into every crevice of society and wonder why there is so much corruption. Have mercy on this nation to once again have statesmen and women who labor for justice and righteousness. Show them favor to move where only You can lead and protect them from harm. Make them wise as serpents and innocent as doves. May the church arise to hold up their arms in this battle while there is still hope and time. We ask for the innocent and future of our world to know freedom, liberty, Your Spirit, which we have squandered.

Sorry, but I don’t believe anyone in this “administration!” Milley needs to be held accountable!! But, no one, not even Republicans, are speaking up as much as they should, yet. These people are the most arrogant, deceptive, lying, people I have ever seen! General Milley did NOT like President Trump!! Just that fact, alone, seems to give these people the “right” to do whatever they want, to hurt Trump or this country! They don’t have the common sense to realize, when you come against President Trump, you are coming against a MAJORITY of the American people! We are not fooled by Milley, or any of them! If this accusation is true, and the writers have a lot to lose if it isn’t, then, this is an “act of treason,” to me! If one of the men or women under him did such a thing, they would be tried and convicted, quickly! Milley, is like a lot of people in this administration, and their minions (Big tech, media, Facebook, doctors, scientists, Google, Fauci, etc.) They have a “God complex,” a gigantic ego problem! They have a “control” problem, that is, THEY want to CONTROL all of us!
By the way, Biden said today, “I have great confidence in General Milley.” That says volumes!!

If this accusation is true, he needs to be held accountable and try for treason against our nation. This is an attack on our constitution and our country.

    Agreed, Rosa, this is absolutely treason. This evildoer General Milley would put our servicemen and all Americans at risk because he clearly is only loyal to his “Chinese counterpart(s)” and not America. God save us from the traitors that are running America now.
