The knives are out for a coup...
Kelly loves Lap Dog Mattis.
Kelly’s job was to serve the President, not Mattis.
All of these generals grew up and were promoted during 24 years of liberal to leftist Presidents. Only like minded leftists were promoted. Conservatives were passed over in mass.
Hit these government Aholes where it really hurts. DON’T PAY YOUR TAXES! That was what our forefathers did to revolt against tyranny.
Let’s face it. . .we have been praying fervently for God to expose the evil and corruption in this country. I mean really, how many more of them are out there. . . Don’t let up on the prayers now. . .we are in a spiritual battle.
Trump showed him the door. Same thing.
Trump’s kind out there on his own. Where’s his posse?
Exactly he POTUs gave him the decency to resign instead of being fired but its the same thing so John Kelly can STFU.
Hell hath no fury like two generals scorned.
Mutiny may be underway.
Why did Trump hire this guy?
Trumps kind out there on his own. Wheres his posse?
They are there.
Semantics being played to further the narrative.
Many of the upper brass in our armed forces are not on “Our” side. I wonder how they got there in the first place.
Two guys that are really pissed off that DJT wants to bring troops home.
The deep state rising up they gotta take back control of the globalist agenda. The economy was great the Russia hoax was exposed so now what we see here is an all out violent attempt to terrorize the American public i to ousting a sitting president either now or at the voting booth in November So they can go back to business as usual unencumbered.
Then that makes them targets.
