All hell is breaking loose in Washington.
Donald Trump is facing the greatest threat to his re-election prospects.
And that’s because Donald Trump got wind of this plot by these military officers to remove him from office.
The military stays out of politics because it is dangerous.
Civilian control over the armed forces prevents America from descending into a Third World banana republic.
But with the election just five months away, multiple high-ranking military officers are now going public with their opposition to Donald Trump.
The first was former Secretary of Defense James Mattis who falsely accused the President of using armed forces to beat back protestors and also compared the President to the Nazis in World War 2.
The next day, former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Ret. Gen. Martin Dempsey condemned Donald Trump in an interview with National Public Radio.
“There were a couple of things that came on rather quickly. One of them was the description of the challenge with these protests of dominating the battle space. That’s a characteristic that we use for conflict in external wars. And I thought, that’s not something the American people should think about in terms of when they see members of the military on their streets,” retired General Dempsey told NPR.
Retired General Dempsey also expressed outrage that the President would threaten to call in the military to suppress a violent left-wing insurgency even though 58 percent of the public supported that idea, according to a recent POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.
“And secondly, the idea that the military would be called in to dominate and to suppress what, for the most part, were peaceful protests — admittedly, where some had opportunistically turned them violent — and that the military would somehow come in and calm that situation was very dangerous to me,” retired General Dempsey added.
Dempsey and Mattis’s attacks were joined by former commander of the NATO International Security Assistance Force and U.S. Forces in Afghanistan and four-star Marine Corps General John Allen.
Allen authored a piece on foreignpolicy.com where Allen dismissed the images of riots breaking out in cities across America as not representative of the mobs in the streets.
“The vast majority of the people protesting in the streets are justifiably furious at the murder of George Floyd, but they’re even angrier over pervasive injustice, mass incarceration, frequent false arrests, and an institutionalized devaluation of black lives and property. And yes, as this anger has spilled over, violence and criminality have ensued. But as much as the president would like them to be—indeed, needs them to be—terrorists, that is not what these people are,” Allen wrote.
According to Allen, the real threat to the country wasn’t the rioters and looters trying to overthrow the American capitalist system and Republican form of government, but was really Donald Trump because of a promise to restore law and order using the legal power delegated to him by Congress.
“To even the casual observer, Monday was awful for the United States and its democracy. The president’s speech was calculated to project his abject and arbitrary power, but he failed to project any of the higher emotions or leadership desperately needed in every quarter of this nation during this dire moment. And while Monday was truly horrific, no one should have been surprised. Indeed, the moment was clarifying in so many ways,” Allen added.
Mattis, Dempsey and Allen coming forward on the same day was not a coincidence.
This was a deep state takedown using retired military officers to sandbag the President and turn the military into a political tool of the left.
But what frightened Trump supporters was the idea that current generals and other officers beholden to the deep state were secretly encouraging Mattis, Dempsey and Allen in trying to remove the President from office.
