    Quick, someone ask Admiral Mullen if thousands of rampaging anarchists aka domestic terrorists toss hundreds of Molotov cocktails into federal buildings and launch RPGs into the White House and Capitol buildings would they then not be considered as enemies of state? After a week of rioting where dozens of cities and hundreds of neighborhoods are looted, gutted and set ablaze, cop cars overturned and burned, cops beaten and killed and with plans made for a million man riot, er, march in DC, complete with bricks, weapons, molotov cocktails and who knows what conveniently stashed along the route, are we supposed...

    Mattis's Trump broadside underscores military tensions BY MORGAN CHALFANT AND REBECCA KHEEL - 06/04/20 06:49 PM EDT Former Defense Secretary James Mattis’s stunning public criticism of President Trump is underscoring growing fears in the military that the president is compromising the integrity of the U.S. Armed Forces by threatening to use them against protesters. Trump has urged governors to deploy National Guard troops to “dominate the streets” and stop violent demonstrations, saying he would dispatch U.S. military forces to states and cities that do not meet his demands. On Monday, streets near the White House were forcibly cleared of peaceful...

    General John Kelly could be the next retired general to rebuke Donald Trump for calling in active duty military in the midst of George Floyd protests – as the former chief of staff called the president 'nasty' for his comments about General Jim Mattis. Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, defended Trump's former Defense secretary on Thursday after Mattis publicly criticized the president's handling of the nationwide protests. He also shot down Trump's claim that he fired Mattis in 2018.

    Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock fired back Thursday at former Defense Secretary James Mattis after he ripped President Trump's response to protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Murdock told "Fox News @ Night" that Mattis' statement misses the mark on several fronts. "He begins by saying very nice things about the protesters, that they want equal justice under the law, we all want that," Murdock began. "Then he has this amazing sentence, 'We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers.'

    President Trump tweeted a copy of a letter from John Dowd, one of the lead lawyers who represented him during the Russia investigation, addressed to former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. The letter penned by Dowd denounced Mattis for criticizing the president’s approach to protesters in front of the White House. “The peaceful protesters near Lafayette park were not peaceful and are not real. They are terrorists using idle hate filled students to burn and destroy,” Dowd wrote, referring to the peaceful protesters at Lafayette Square who were forcefully dispersed. After the protestors fled from the square, Trump walked through the...

What a wonderful, wonderful man.” Mattis, who...

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) asserted Thursday that former Secretary of Defense James Mattis calling President Donald Trump a threat to the U.S. Constitution was “true, honest, necessary, and overdue.” Murkowski, one of the Senate’s most left-leaning Republicans, made the comment while speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill. Asked whether she supports President Trump, the lawmaker replied,” “I am struggling with it [ and] I have struggled with it for a long time.” On Wednesday, Mattis attacked President Trump in a statement to The Atlantic by accusing the president of violating the Constitution over the clearing of Lafayette Park on Monday...

    James Mattis, who served as President Trump's first Secretary of Defense, excoriated the president in a statement to The Atlantic published on Wednesday -- urging Americans to "reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution." Mattis has largely stayed out of the public eye since resigning in December 2018, when he opposed Trump's abrupt troop pullout from Syria. The retired Marine Corps general had said he wanted to give the administration an "opportunity" to govern, rather than criticize the president in the press. On Wednesday, though, Mattis made clear that Trump's response to...

    Former secretary of defense Jim Mattis told aides he would rather 'swallow acid' than allow Trump to throw a $50million 'Victory Parade', and said the president's summit with Putin was a display of the White House seeking 'instant gratification', a new book reveals. Mattis, who was known as 'Mad Dog' during his career in the military, resigned in December 2018 following Trump's decision to withdraw US troops from Syria. The defense chief's former speechwriter Guy Snodgrass has detailed his clashes with the president in new book, Holding The Line: Inside Trump's Pentagon With Secretary Mattis, obtained by ahead of...

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Probably the only thing Barack Obama & I have in common is that we both had the honor of firing Jim Mattis, the world’s most overrated General. I asked for his letter of resignation, & felt great about it. His nickname was “Chaos”, which I didn’t like, & changed to “Mad Dog”... ...His primary strength was not military, but rather personal public relations. I gave him a new life, things to do, and battles to win, but he seldom “brought home the bacon”. I didn’t like his “leadership” style or much else about him, and many...
