The Hill: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was fearful former President Trump would launch nuclear weapons in his final days in the White House, according to a new book:
Washington Post journalists Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker write in “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year” that Pelosi called Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, after the Capitol riot to express her concerns about Trump’s behavior, the newspaper reported. According to the book, she wanted to ensure Trump could not start a war and launch nuclear weapons as one of his final acts in power.
“This guy’s crazy,” Pelosi reportedly told Milley. “He’s dangerous. He’s a maniac.”
“Ma’am, I guarantee you that we have checks and balances in the system,” Milley responded, Leonnig and Rucker write.
“The top US military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley, was so shaken that then-President Donald Trump and his allies might attempt a coup or take other dangerous or illegal measures after the November election that Milley and other top officials informally planned for different ways to stop Trump, according to excerpts of an upcoming book obtained by CNN.
“[‘I Alone Can Fix It,’ written by] Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, describes how Milley and the other Joint Chiefs discussed a plan to resign, one-by-one, rather than carry out orders from Trump that they considered to be illegal, dangerous or ill-advised.”
The Guardian reports that “Vladimir Putin personally authorised a secret spy agency operation to support a “mentally unstable” Donald Trump in the 2016 US presidential election during a closed session of Russia’s national security council, according to what are assessed to be leaked Kremlin documents.
The key meeting took place on 22 January 2016, the papers suggest, with the Russian president, his spy chiefs and senior ministers all present. They agreed a Trump White House would help secure Moscow’s strategic objectives, among them “social turmoil” in the US and a weakening of the American president’s negotiating position. Russia’s three spy agencies were ordered to find practical ways to support Trump, in a decree appearing to bear Putin’s signature.”
The Hill Reporter: [GQP Rep. Lauren “Bobo”] “Boebert was one of the speakers at the three-day grift fest disguised as CPAC… And she definitely performed for the base, knocking President Joe Biden and his administration by saying things like, ‘We’re here to tell the government we don’t want your benefits, we don’t want your welfare. Don’t come knocking on my door with your Fauci Ouchi, you leave us the hell alone,’ Boebert told the CPAC crowd.
Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to the rant in a tweet:
At the the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas this weekend, members of a cult identified as Patriots Soar circulated a hare-brained, seven-point plan for overturning the US government by impeaching Pres. Biden and Vice Pres. Harris and installing the disgraced ex-president in the White House.
Its premise is utter nonsense and the plan could be dismissed as nothing more than sop intended to energize the base, which it is – if the Q-inspired right-wing base weren’t already radicalized, armed and dangerous, as they displayed when they invaded the U.S. Capitol intending to kidnap and kill members of Congress as well as the US vice president.
Here’s an overview of the plan from the Independent:
Step one of the plan is to “pull back the curtain on the horror show that is today’s ‘Democrat Party’. Watch Pelosi melt, like the Wicked Witch of the West. See the Black Caucus and other key groups flip, unexpectedly, and watch the tables turn”.
A Trump-worshipping self-described “prophet” declared to his YouTube congregants in late June that that people with “slotted eyes” are possessed by Satan in his guise as the serpent who tempted Adam and Eve.
“[If] you’ll look at the eyes, you’ll notice they’re serpent’s pupils, their slotted pupils… that slotted serpent’s eye,” Robin Bullock said in his “The Eleventh Hour” cult service on June 23, 2013. “It’s because we’re back at that place where Satan is trying to offer the world that their eyes may be open, but it’s not King James anymore—it’s woke.”
