He quickly removed people from the Pentagon, replacing them with his henchman. The Pentagon refused to send back up to the Capitol. Trump similarly refused. Pence had to step in.
Fiona Hill now says that the Former Dod heads spoke up because they got wind of something?</p>
<p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>A chilling revelation from the wise and informed Fiona Hill, Trump’s former Russia advisor. Now we know exactly why all the living former Secretaries of Defense suddenly called on the military to refrain from political involvement. They knew Trump’s attempted coup was underway.

This is the down side of 25th Amendment or a quick impeachment. Sure he gets his consequence, but in order to really have justice and deal with this problem there needs to be a thorough investigation with a Democratic Senate majority leader. We need to find out what level of planning went into this, who was involved, whether there was white supremacist groups, QAnon or Boogaloo influence in the police force and/or in the administation and whether there was a coordinated effort there. I don’t know whether that’s true. Also very, very important to find out what actual attempts were made to involve the military, what they were attempting to do, and who was involved with that.
So I’m not against the 25th Amendment because that is just to prevent anything more happening. But I don’t want to have people get all their anger out and then move on. They need to get to find out whether this was just Trump fluffing off America one last time, or whether this was an elaborate and coordinated effort to overthrow the Legislative Branch and keep Trump in power.
We know what Peter Pan believes in Neverland, but I’d like to know if there was actually any truth to the idea that there was an attempt at a military takeover.
“By around 4pm, Gov. Hogan said, he learned that Acting Defense Sec. Chris Miller had yet to grant the necessary approval for Guardsmen to enter Washington. “We were repeatedly being told by the National Guard at the national level that we did not have authorization,” Hogan said https://t.co/QKDTHt3DcY
It is quickly becoming clear that senior figures in our government–and in the White House–not only supported the idea and goals of the January 6 terrorists, but provided material support, funding, and operational intelligence.
Gotta admit it was the wackiest thing in politics since Rasputin. But there is no doubt that Trump commanded these idiots to rush the gates and his administration purposefully weakened and delayed the ability for law enforcement to resp ond. This was in an attempt to in some way disrupt the counting of electors. WTF did Trump think would happen then? Then they try to call Tubberville to delay the vote…for what? So they can get the military to come in? I don’t know. It was all just bizarre to put it mildly. There is no doubt Trump orchestrated this, but what exactly he thought he was going to accomplish is murky. He’s crazy, and not crazy like a fox. He’s whackadoodle. But in a dangerous way.
Except for that thing about the President trying some kind of crazy coup by sending guys with zip ties to break into a joint session of Congress to try to stop the counting of electoral votes and the half ass DC Police basically letting them do it. Other than that nothing much happened.
Chron, I’m giving you credit here. QAnon George Washington is an unemployed failed actor who lives with his Mom. Thomas Jefferson is a “stay at home” Dad with five kids. And you know our Peter Pan doesn’t have a job. QAnon is a bunch of unemployed mentally unstable people who are mad about their lot in life. These losers always existed, but now they have social media to bring them together. Then you have the white supremacists Proud Boys and government types like a smattering of law enforcement and guys like Josh Hawley. Look its just the KKK, but they realize that name doesn’t fly anymore, so lets go by Proud Boys and Relious Liberty R Us or whatever. Its just the KKK reimagined.
Why would Trump chose these people to lead his charge?
