Imagine it. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army four-star Mark Milley, whacks President Trump in the NYSlimes. Officially interfering in the 2020 election.
You sorry, insubordinate paper soldier and swamp creature, you should resign immediately if not sooner. G-d help us if you’t.
UPDATE: PJMedia’s Joel Pollack: “For months, retired senior military leaders have made public comments suggesting that Trump ought to be removed from office, “the sooner, the better.” Last week, former Secretary of Defense James Mattis joined the others.
“With violent protesters surrounding the White House, these statements were ill-timed, at best. But the question remained how deeply the effort to delegitimize Trump pervaded the military leadership. [Milley’s] apology suggests a troubling answer…As a result of his needless apology, no matter what happens in November, the losing side will blame the military.”
On Twitter, no less, and she’s quite literate. Even if the link to her solo dot com site doesn’t work. I believe her. A rape victim who has finally recovered. Resign, Creepy Joe.
Austin city government is adding to the Wuhan China virus panic by ordering all “non-essential” businesses to close until May 1. Retailers can’t afford to do it, especially not restaurants and bars. Be lots of unemployment.
Trump and the feds only recommend. The city council orders.
How are the little tyrants—supposedly non-partisan but mostly good lefty Dimocrats—going to enforce their ordinance? They don’t have enough police to begin with. Will they hire enforcers with truncheons?
Childishly ripping up her copy of the president’s State of the Union speech as he concluded it was crazy in the extreme. It was meant to upstage him and it did. The move will be immortalized in Trump campaign ads. It will add to calls within her Dim party that she step down as Speaker.
It’s a pity that the first woman Speaker of the House is such a loony tune.

UPDATE: Newt Gingrich called her action “viciously partisan” and one Republican rep said he fears for the country. As well he might, since her fellow Dimocrats gave her a standing O.
It’s Mexifornia, of course. Where historian Victor Davis Hanson sees:
“We have the highest income tax rates,” said Hanson of California. “We have the highest gas tax rates. We have among the highest sales tax. Our schools [and] our infrastructure is in the bottom ten percent. I don’t remember one out of every three people being admitted to a hospital suffering from diabetes in California. When I was growing up we didn’t have two or three dialysis clinics in every single little town. We have an epidemic of health problems and yet the money to address that is such that we can’t spend it on infrastructure.”
What happens in California stays in California. Let’s hope.
