Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley may have an impressive service record on and off the battlefield but I wouldn’t send him out on a reconnaissance mission right now to determine the numbers, strength and intentions of any adversary right now if he considers the likes of Anna Morgan Lloyd a threat to the republic.

Lloyd, a 49-year-old grandmother from Indiana, was the first person to be sentenced for charges linked to the Jan. 6 breach of the Capitol. The unarmed tourist spent two days in the custody of the Harris-Biden DOJ for the crime of following others through an open door and looking around. In fact, if you look at the available footage most Capitol Hill security are seeming just standing around, looking more like tour guides than any impediment to trespassing.

As the Gateway Pundit reported, the unarmed “insurrectionist: grandmother  “was arrested in February after a Greene County Indiana Sheriff’s Office employee tipped off the FBI as being someone ‘who posted about the Capitol riot’ online after Morgan-Lloyd had applied for a firearm permit:

In a sentencing memo, federal prosecutors explained how Morgan-Lloyd was inside a hallway of the building for about 10 minutes, did not commit any violence or destroy any property, and did not coordinate or plan her actions beforehand. For standing inside she was charged with 4 counts. In her plea deal, the prosecution is also requesting that as part of her probation she is unable to purchase a firearm.

Walking inside the Capitol was her crime. For her crime against humanity and our democracy, Lloyd was hunted down, jailed and “reeducated” by her court-appointed public “defender” with materials which included the book “Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee” about an alleged massacre of peaceful Indians by the U.S. Cavalty. This is what the vengeful left has in store for all who voted for or supported Trump.

After her arrest, Lloyd’s lawyer gave her a list of books and movies to help her ‘see what life is like for others in our country,’ Lloyd wrote. Lloyd said she has sought to educate herself by watching movies such as ‘Schindler’s List’ and the History Channel’s ‘Burning Tulsa’ and reading Bryan Stevenson´s ‘Just Mercy.’

This is something out of Mao’s Communist China. You will be arrested for straying from trhe approved line, incarcerated, and reeducated under prnalty of law. Gen. Milley says he has studied Mao. Can’t he see the Harriss-Biden administration is practicing what Mao preached? Just who is threatening or democracy and or constitution, Gen. Milley?

He has apparently forgotten this nation was born in a messy protest such as the Boston Tea Party when patriots protected unjust taxation by throwing British tea into Boston Harbor. Was that “whire rage” Gen. <illley? Or was it white racism since they were dressed as Indians, cultural misappropriation at the very least. The Constitution you say is under attack gives us the right to petition for redress of grievances and sometimes it ain’t pretty. Just witness the angry patriot parents at local school board meetings as so-called educators try to force critical race theory down the children’s throats just as you want to force it down our soldiers' throats.

You say you read Mao because you want to understand a potential adversary/ But we are not the enemy even though you think you have met the enemy and you think he is us. Your enemy, the one you are trained to kill and blow up, wears Red Chinese and Russian uniforms, not red MAGA hats. Tell us, Gen. Milley, how you expect young men and women of all ethnicities and colors, are expected to fight and die for what you believe and critical race theory teaches is a fundamentally racist society.

The picture you painted of the Jan. 6 protestors in your recent congressional testimony is nonsense:

The four-star general said it was important for military personnel to be well-informed and “open-minded.” Gen. Milley said he wanted to understand “white rage.”

“What is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States?” What caused that? I want to find out,” Gen. Milley said, citing the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol by supporters of President Trump challenging the 2020 presidential election result.

Did Grandma Lloyd assault the building and try to overturn the Constitution? She wasn’t armed and neither was anyone else. The only person to be shot and killed was a young, unarmed woman wearing a red MAGA hat named Ashlii Babbitt. As part of your effort to understand things, Gen. Milley, can you find out the name of the officer who killed her and why she had to die? Was her murder “white rage”?


Just what do we expect to happen when 75 million Americans are told their votes don't matter and can be stolen without consequence or concern, that their voices don't matter and can be silenced at will and that now they must be punished for supporting the candidate of their choice in a former free republic. These people have a right to assemble and petition their representatives for a redress of their grievances. The Constitution you say they came to destroy begins with “We the people” and not “We the Joint Chiefs.” It speaks of the consent of the governed. The governed in a country born in violent protest of a tyrannical government no longer consent to the creeping tyranny of this government.

White rage? Skin pigment does not determine brain chemistry or the emotions of the heart but rage can arise when leftists exploit a pandemic to seize power, steal an election, lockdown an economy, destroy people’s livelihoods and dreams, and shred their constitutional freedoms and rights. There is no pandemic exception to the Constitution.

Those gathered in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6 were protesting big government and the deep state that has tried to illegally overthrow the duly elected President of the United States. The deep state couldn’t overturn the 2016 election so they stole the 2020 election. There’s your overthrow of the Government, Gen. Milley. 75 million Americans became Trump’s silenced majority.

 The attendees at the Trump rally/protest will be protesting attempts to take away their constitutional rights under the guise of protecting our health. They are truly America’s huddled masses yearning to breathe free under the stifling oppression of government mandates. They are protesting threats to their safety as liberal jurisdictions release tens of thousands of felons onto the streets while calling for the defunding of ICE and the police. They are protesting the fact that we can’t patronize our local businesses but rioters can burn them down. People going to church are stalked and picketed by arsonists and looters are free to go.

The Wuhan virus pandemic is a liberal/progressive dream come true. It gives them the recession they have prayed for, the only time they pray, to oust President Trump. Their reason for getting up in the morning is to enact laws and programs that control every aspect of our lives and the Wuhan virus gives them the chance to do just that. They are not letting this crisis go to waste moving swiftly to exercise authority they do not legally have to shred the unalienable rights our Creator endowed us with and the Constitution written to protect them.

Americans are tired of an oppressive government that for our own good, they tell us, simultaneously the most benign and evil of motives, locks us in our homes based on computer models that have never been right from day one and health guidelines that keep changing so much they might as well be written on an Etch-a-Sketch. They want to “flatten the curve” as they succeed in crushing our hopes and dreams. They seek treatments and a cure for a virus ignoring the health care costs of crushed lives and dreams, the human costs of lost jobs and careers, of nest eggs broken on the ground, of people who used to provide for their families fighting in stores over rolls of toilet paper. We are being guided by the best infectious disease experts in the world, we are told, experts so smart they didn’t anticipate or consider the lives lost from depression, suicide, drug and alcohol addiction and despair in a land where abortion is considered. An essential procedure but heart stint and CT scans not so much.


Americans are poor from an economy brought to its knees by a malevolent adversary, China, and a government whose leaders who chat with late night talk show hosts sit at home in their mansions in gated communities eating expensive ice cream stored in refrigerator freezers few Americans could afford when times were good and normal.

Americans are huddled in their homes, in numbers the government must approve of. The Last Supper would have been illegal under current guidelines as it involved more than 12 people having dinner outside their own homes.

And they yearn to breathe free, wanting to play catch with their kids in an empty park only to be taken away by the police state that has arisen around them. They want to paddle a kayak on an empty private lake or to hear a Sunday homily or sermon over a speaker in their cars in a church parking lot without a bevy of Barney Fifes chasing them down and handing them tickets for amounts higher than most criminal bail amounts. Like William Wallace in “Braveheart” they are shouting “Freedom!  



This is what Trump really said on Jan. 6, Gen. Milley, after reciting a list of documented unconstitutional election law changes, vote tampering, manipulation and fraud, as reported by the Palm Beach Post:

"And after this, we're going to walk down there, and I'll be there with you, we're going to walk down ... to the Capitol and we are going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women," Trump told the crowd. "And we're probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them. Because you'll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong."…

"We will never give up. We will never concede. It doesn't happen. You don't concede when there's theft involved," Trump said. "Our country has had enough. We're not going to take it anymore."…

e further said: "You're the real people. You're the people that built this nation. You're not the people that tore down this nation."

The president did also say: "I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard."

And he added in a bit of irony: "Now it is up to Congress to confront this egregious assault on our democracy."

“Peacefully and patriotically” are not words you gears when progressives formed their “resistance” against Trump or as our cities burned in Antifa and BLM led riots. The George Floyd/BLM protests cost 1-2 billion dollars in damage. They protested in over 140 Cities. Dozens of people died and over 14,000 were arrested, a federal courthouse in Portland was burned, as well as a historic church in Washington, D.C. but only the Capitol Hill protestors threatened our democracy. Really, Gen. Milley? You weren’t concerned about insurrectionists or rage of any color last year as American cities from Portland to Minneapolis burned, destroying largely minority neighborhoods and businesses, riots led by BLM and Antifa.

Speaking of historic St. John’s Church in Washington, D.C.’s Lafayette Square which BLM and Antifa rioters set on fire along with other local buildings as they tried to pull down historic statues, much to Gen. Milley’s indifference,   after the arson attempt failed, President Trump walked with an entourage to the church, Bible in hand, to show we would not cower to the BLM and Antifa rage Gen. Milley seems to find acceptable.

Gen. Milley then proceeded his commander-in-chief, publicly apologizing for being “forced” to appear in what he called a politically motivated photo-op. As RedState reported:

Gen. Mark Milley, the current Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was among that group.

On Thursday morning, during a prerecorded commencement address to the graduating class of the National Defense University, Milley said, “I should never have been there.”

He apologized to the graduates because it had been a “political event” and that the military must remain apolitical.

He told them:

As senior leaders, everything you do will be closely watched and I am not immune, as many of you saw the results of the photograph of me at Lafayette Square last week. That sparked a national debate about the role of the military in civil society. I should not have been there. My presence in that moment, and in that environment, created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics. As a commissioned, uniformed officer, it was a mistake that I have learned from and I sincerely hope we can all learn from it.

Gen. Milley should have kept his big mouth shut. The walk and subsequent photos had political connotations but so does Trump speaking at a military service academy graduation. A historic frequented by presidents was under attack as was the rest of the city. Isn’t it the sworn duty of the President and all military officers under his command to protect us against all enemies foreign and domestic Which part of that does Gen. Milley not understand? Which part of commander-in-chief does he not understand?

Milley follows the equally “woke” Chief of Naval Operation, Adm. Michael Gilday. Instead of preparing our fleets for battle, Admiral Gilday is damning the torpedoes and going full speed ahead on pushing critical race theory on the Navy by putting a book espousing critical race theory on the Navy’s reading list for sailors.

It is the Trump-hating Milley who is being political and disgracing his uniform and his country in doing so. His  job is not to be “woke” but to make sure our enemies on the battlefield never wake up again.
