>”They may try, but they’re not going to f**king succeed,” Milley told his deputies, according to the authors. “You can’t do this without the military. You can’t do this without the CIA and the FBI. We’re the guys with the guns.” Well, this is good to read. I was wondering just how these generals were reacting to this slow-motion coup. Especially like that last part, as they’re putting these militias on notice.

>describes how Milley and the other Joint Chiefs discussed a plan to resign, one-by-one, rather than carry out orders from Trump that they considered to be illegal, dangerous or ill-advised. Trump would have just found a toady he installed to eventually do his bidding. I think subordinate commanders would take the lead from the JCS and not execute orders. It is amazing just how long it can take to mobilize a fighting force. Most are probably amber on MEDPROS. Can’t take over the federal government when you don’t have your flu shot.

That son of a b*tch,” Cheney said, according to the book. haha true > After the January 6 insurrection, Pelosi told the general she was deeply concerned that a “crazy,” “dangerous” and “maniac” Trump might use nuclear weapons during his final days in office. WHAT THE FUCK

Welcome to the U.S.A. where even the top military general in this country thinks you are an Facist looking for excuse to seize power. Good work Republicans – you have fully embraced facism.
