Generals WIN battle with Donald Trump as 82nd Airborne soldiers are REMOVED from D.C.

Generals WIN battle with Donald Trump as 82nd Airborne soldiers are REMOVED from D.C. after chairman of joint chiefs publicly slammed president telling troops to 'uphold the Constitution'

Soldiers with the 82nd Airborne division of the Army were ordered out of Washington, D.C. and back to Fort Bragg, North Carolina on Thursday night

The about 200 active duty troops were kept on standby at bases near the nation's capital and were never called into the city in the midst of riots

The move is a clear reversal after Donald Trump faced backlash for calling in the military to serve as backup should the National Guard need assistance

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, former Army General John Allen and former Defense Secretary James Mattis all pushed back against Trump

Milley told troops in a Thursday memo to 'uphold the Constitution' 'We all committed our lives to the idea that is America' after he defended protesters' right to assemble,' he added in pen at at the bottom of the letter

Mattis and retired four-star General Allen both bashedTrump in separate op-eds

They specifically called out police clearing Lafayette Park with tear gas and rubber bullets so Trump could visit a church across the street for a photo-op.

'It may well signal the beginning of the end of the American experiment,' Allen said of the church visit where Trump held up his bible for photos .

'Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people - does not even pretend to try,' Mattis wrote

It’s my understanding that then troops were on standby and were never deployed. They were sent back when the threat was considered to be over. Of course, the haters will create a narrative around this to attack Trump.


Yeah, no. Esper was not freelancing. Something big is brewing in the Pentagon

DOD has been a hot bed of coupist behavior due in large part to a lack of oversight from Congress. Note the still excellent military career prospects of Vindman and the Corona boat captain.

I haven’t heard a peep out of these A-holes about the obvious and blatant use of the Intelligence services, including military ones, to undermine the President of the US. NOT ONE F’ING WORD!!!! THAT is the descent into tyranny that they should be worried about. Not doing what has been done an many occasions in the past, use the military to calm widespread civil unrest. These morons just show the world the fact that they are traitors to their country and don’t give a crap about the oath they swore to uphold the Constitution. Did the President issue an unlawful order? Did he tell the troops to use violence against civilians? What kind of troops are they, MP’s? In which case they are really just additional cops wearing a different uniform. There is a lot more going on here. They are getting more and more open in their coup attempts.

Trump is still the Commander in Chief. Anyone who saw that line of Secret Service and Park police holding a line against an aggressive crowd that pummeled the officers with missiles and bricks, who dismantled barricades and were pressing to rush the White House necessitating the Secret Service at a critical time to shield the President of the United States into a bunker, a rational person would say Trump if he so chose would be more than justified in invoking the Insurrection Act and deploy Federal troops. These generals if they cannot or will not follow lawful orders should resign or be removed.

That was my take too. They were in reserve, and it was only 200 of them. Not the whole damn division. These generals are up to no good and something unconstitutional.

They've all been promised the moon and the stars under Biden's vaccuum. Which means they'll get us into a war asap.

Once again, Trump needs to suspend habeus corpus and selectively introduce protective custody to his sworn enemies.

After rolling up the group that Durham is about to charge, Durham charges them and then Trump reveals the charges are going to expand based on witnesses like Rice and Power flipping, repeat, repeat, repeat, expand, expand, expand.

I suspect coup was planed with a mad rush of antifa/MS-13 storming the white house. When the military shown up the plan failed and they’re pissed

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, was he out of the loop when the troops were sent to DC? A general who publicly slams the President should not be a general for much longer...

There are likely the upper command that Obama appointed.

It was a horrible mistake for Trump to retain a lot of military leadership under Obama once Obama was out of office.


This is a 30 year rot in our military. Way bigger than Obama. Bush, Clinton, Bush and Village Idiot have all contributed to it.

Do you people ever learn? Things are almost never the way they are first reported. By whom? The MSM of course!

The antifa goal is one million demonstrators/rioters/looters/walking dead for a SATURDAY breech of the White house. The 82nd Airborne could be useful then.

I posted last night on one of the related threads that I was concerned that the military was going its own way and maybe Trump didn’t have full control over them. Nobody responded, but it’s been a concern of mine for awhile now.

It's very clear, that the show trial that Durham is about to kick off, can either be about Obama, or Trump.

President Trump needs to consider every single option.

Looks like plenty Yegraf Zhivagos have infiltrated the military over the years....

If you’ve never seen Doctor Zhivago, you must watch it, and see the parallels.

Why would anyone be surprised? No other department of the Government has followed the orders of our President for the past 3.5 years.

How about Eisenhower sending the troops to Little Rock to enforce school desecration. Am I wrong here?

Yes, you are wrong!! :) The troops in Little Rock were to support school DESEGREGATION; certainly not desecration.

Correct, but the fake news in this moronic article is simply meant to attempt to sow discord in the Administration and further the lefts narrative.

In other words, a lot of nonsensical opinions masquerading as news.
