Power Grabbing Generals Are Extremely Dangerous
General Milley is a threat to the Presidency

Reports about General Mark Milley usurping the authority of U.S. Government officials and other military officers came to light several years ago. Some of his transgressions are so egregious, he should have been removed from his position years ago and jailed. General Milley still holds the same position, as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and still presents a threat to the office of the President.
In a report by Katie Pavlich of TownHall, 14 Sept 2021, General Milley committed “Treason.” Referring to statements held within the book “Peril” by Bob Woodward and Bob Costa, on 8 Jan 2020, Gen. Milley told Communist Chinese Gen. Li, “If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”
The most disturbing report has Gen. Milley withholding the nuclear launch codes from then-President Trump. Yet he still holds his position in the U.S. Government; Gen. Milley is in an advisory position to the President of the United States. Katie Pavlich further stated that Milley had summoned senior officers to review the procedures for launching nuclear weapons. The “procedures say the President alone could give the order but, crucially, that he, Milley, also had to be involved. Looking each in the eye, Milley asked the officers to affirm that they understood, the authors write, in what he considers an ‘oath.’ In other words, Milley instructed senior officers to obey his orders and ignore those given by President Trump, the duly elected Commander-in-Chief.” This is subordination of the highest order.
Kyle Morris of Fox News Digital on 20 Sept 2021 reported statements of E. Casey Wardynski, the former assistant Secretary of the Army under President Trump. In an interview “accused Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Milley and Chief Staff of the U.S. Army Gen. James McConville of making statements that insinuated they were calling the shots.” “Regarding Milley, Wardynski said he was a ‘bully’ in meetings and insisted he would regularly overstep his authority to control the agenda, claiming he and others, for some time, had no 'intention of supporting' Trump.”
As the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Milley has no authority over any branch of the U.S. Military. He as Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs serves only as an advisor to the President; he is a staff officer, and he is not a commander. But he has repeatedly violated the Chain-of-Command, calling commanders and admirals, giving them direct orders, and usurping presidential authority.
Considering the mental condition of Pres. Joe Biden and the incompetence of VP Harris, it is doubtful Milley would give control of the nuclear launch codes to Biden, leaving Milley and others in control of the most dangerous weapon system in the world. This puts this senior officer and the others directly supporting him, in a position to seize power if they desire.
