The founding fathers crafted our form of government with great care. They knew liberty was fragile, so they built a system of checks and balances which they hoped would constrain the perpetual ambitions of power seekers.
Decades ago, a form of empire replaced the humble republic our forefathers gifted us, and today one of the last hallmarks of limited government is being strained and tested.
It’s imperative you join the Ten Seven Club, where you can join us on the frontlines of this fight. We need every supporter we can to help reset the American experiment and restore the U.S. Constitution.
Explosive allegations were released yesterday that implicate General Mark Milley in an attempt to overturn civilian control of our elected government.
Yes, Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the man who has done so much to demonstrate the inadequacy of the military brass, tried to seize the reins of power in the final weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency.
Bob Woodward and Bob Costa write that, “Milley was overseeing the mobilization of America’s national security state without the knowledge of the American people or the rest of the world.”
Let me be clear: General Milley has no command authority over anything. No Chairman of the Joint Chiefs does. He is a military advisor who serves at the pleasure of the president.
But that legal distinction doesn’t mean anything to Milley. Woodward and Costa describe how, after President Trump ordered the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, “Milley could not forget that Trump had done an end run around his top military advisers.”
An elected president of the United States attempting to implement the policies that Americans voted for? How dare he proceed without the sabotaging advice of the Pentagon brass!
I would bet everything I have that Mark Milley spent months telling Joe Biden to reverse with the withdrawal and keep our soldiers stationed in Afghanistan for eons.
Thankfully we had two presidents who did enough to dismiss Milley’s lousy advice.
Yet somehow, that may not be the most dangerous accusation made by Woodward and Costa.
According to them, General Milley placed two phone calls to General Li Zuocheng, the highest-ranking officer in the People’s Liberation Army of China.
Milley assured his counterpart, “General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”
Our organization does not support armed conflict with China, and we oppose the initiation of war without a formal declaration by Congress as required by the U.S. Constitution.
But to learn that Mark Milley whispered sweet vows into the ear of the Chinese military, swearing to warn them ahead of any American action…it’s sickening.
BringOurTroopsHome.US agrees with our ally, Senator Rand Paul: General Milley is not fit to serve, and in the interest of national security must be removed immediately.
We cannot have rogue generals who subvert civilian control of the military, sabotage policy prerogatives of our elected leaders, or who conspire secretly with foreign governments.
President Biden, cast off this informer before he has the opportunity to do more damage than he already has (if that’s possible).
