Jack Holmes: And that the new leadership he installed seized direct control over deploying the National Guard that day. And that deployment was delayed for hours.

"Dotard Purged Pentagon Leadership Before 1-6 Insurrection"

Heh,heh, remember when BOAZ said he would stop supporting Trump if Trump messed with Military Chain of Command for political purposes?

That was awesome, wasn't it!

Good times, those...sigh.

"The main takeaway seems to be that two top Pentagon officials, General Charles Flynn"who happens to be the brother of Trumpist fanatic Mike Flynn, though Matthews' memo does not seem to cast aspersions on this front"and Lieutenant General Walter Piatt, opposed deploying the Guard on conference calls that afternoon.

That included a 2:30 p.m. call in which then-Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund "pleaded" for the National Guard to be deployed in order to aid his officers under attack. In Matthews' telling, both Flynn and Piatt said on the call that they opposed the move because "the optics of having uniformed military personnel deployed to the U.S. Capitol would not be good."

Traitor all, especially Trump who no one in their right mind would be surprised to find out that he ordered the Guard delayed.

Duh... obviously it takes time to set up a gallows and hang the VP who didn't follow Trump's related orders.

Boaz will probably be along to deny that.

I clearly remember that because I recall thinking to myself "so he draws the line at treason".

If it is not obvious at this point, let me put this out there...

Fmr Pres Trump was trying to stage a coup.

The Ego that is fmr Pres Trump wanted to turn the Oval Office into an adoration of a god.

That god being fmr Pres Trump.

He has a third chance in 2024.

Will the Constitution survive?

Jefferson Airplane - We Can Be Together
www.youtube.com

Lyrics excerpt...

...
We are forces of chaos and anarchy
Everything they say we are we are
And we are very
Proud of ourselves
Up against the wall
Up against the wall fred (------------)
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Come on now together
Get it on together
Everybody together
We should be together
We should be together my friends
We can be together
We will be
We must begin here and now
A new continent of earth and fire
Come on now gettin higher and higher
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Won't you try
...

(there's a 60's playlist in my headphones this evening...)

Oh no ... poor Boaz is just a poor helpless conservative from a welfare state who has lost everything to the liberals or immigrants apparently and so he can't afford to read the article and as a Trumpet he's too stupid to figure out how to read it for free. So as usual his comment will just be a meaningless bunch of words thrown together and probably completely unrelated to the topic but will definitely contain the word liberal somewhere in it.

No way. He will ignore this just as he ignores all the posts that show Trump conspired to overthrow the Constitution. Boaz knows in his gut that it is true so he avoids the matter

Well, sitting here in front of my computer, I find myself grateful to the press and others on the internet who work to get the facts out. One thing is certain, if Trump runs again, no one can say they don't know who he is or was, for he really did try to coup his way to sitting in the White House for a second time, as leader of a fascist undemocratic state.

What the hell do you think he was bragging about on January 4th in Georgia, that ---- show?

He clearly had higher expectations

Pressed further, Trump said: "We'll want to have " get rid of the ballots and you'll have a very " we'll have a very peaceful " there won't be a transfer, frankly. There'll be a continuation."

When people tell you who they are and what they intend to do we should listen to them.

If only Trumpy's Maga shock troops could have grabbed the electoral college ballot box on Jan6th during the insurrection. Everything would have turned out different.

There would have been No Transfer of Power but a "continuation".

That was the plan.

The morons that attempted the violent overthrow of our constitution on 1/6 certainly believed that, however there certainly are electronic backups of the votes and would not have changed the outcome, only delayed it.

The are stupid enough to believe that though and that is scary. The honestly believed trampys seditious words, that they could "take back" the country through a violent insurrection.

1/6 was a rehearsal. The real insurrection is these states who didn't like the way their citizens voted and are now passing law after law designed to replace the will of the people with the will of the people in power. That in itself is more of a threat to the Constitution and our nation than anything done on 1/6.

Guess none here paid attention to the obama purge of senior officers during his administration [i.e., he replaced officers with dem leaning/political ones:

The Whataboutism is strong in this one.

There's no indication that that the Officers you mention delayed the deployment of the National Guard to the Capitol during a riotous coup attempt.
