Gen. Milley Promised to Warn Communist China of U.S. Attack
By Daniel Greenfield

There have been a lot of anti-Trump books put out there. And this comes from Peril, co-authored by Bob Woodward, who is reasonably credible by the low standards of this marketplace. Anti-Trump books have made claims about General Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, undermining President Trump before, but this particular claim is a hell of a game-changer.

In a pair of secret phone calls, Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, assured his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army, that the United States would not strike, according to a new book by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward and national political reporter Robert Costa.

One call took place on Oct. 30, 2020, four days before the election that unseated President Trump, and the other on Jan. 8, 2021, two days after the Capitol siege carried out by his supporters in a quest to cancel the vote.

It’s not the role of generals to engage in backdoor diplomacy like this, but that’s been happening more often. The Pentagon similarly tried to negotiate a resolution in Libya over the heads of Obama and Hillary Clinton.

That’s problematic enough when it comes to the chain of command. But this becomes a lot more than just problematic. It turns treasonous.

In the book’s account, Milley went so far as to pledge he would alert his counterpart in the event of a U.S. attack, stressing the rapport they’d established through a backchannel. “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.”

Li took the chairman at his word, the authors write in the book, “Peril,” which is set to be released next week.

In the second call, placed to address Chinese fears about the events of Jan. 6, Li wasn’t as easily assuaged, even after Milley promised him, “We are 100 percent steady. Everything’s fine. But democracy can be sloppy sometimes.”

Li remained rattled, and Milley, who did not relay the conversation to Trump, according to the book, understood why. The chairman, 62 at the time and chosen by Trump in 2018, believed the president had suffered a mental decline after the election, the authors write, a view he communicated to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a phone call on Jan. 8. He agreed with her evaluation that Trump was unstable, according to a call transcript obtained by the authors.

Here’s where everything goes off the rails.

Milley was conducting backchannel talks with his Chinese opposite number which POTUS was not aware of. And which were being deliberately kept from him because the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs had decided to privately 25th Amendment him.

The individual components here are bad enough on their own, but they add up to an effective late-term coup and treason.

Milley also summoned senior officers to review the procedures for launching nuclear weapons, saying the president alone could give the order — but, crucially, that he, Milley, also had to be involved. Looking each in the eye, Milley asked the officers to affirm that they had understood, the authors write, in what he considered an “oath.”

This is covert coup stuff. And with the Chinese element turns toward treasonous territory.

Milley had cut POTUS out of the loop, conducted private negotiations with the enemy, and assured them that he would alert them in the case of an attack. The interpretation from the book and the Washington Post is that he would have done so if Trump had ordered a covert attack. That’s not entirely clear from the actual material, but it’s an entirely plausible take which would turn this into an undiluted act of treason.

Actually, we have a treasonist illegally occupying the highest office in the country. He sold out the VP's office to the highest bidders, one being China. IMO, both of them should be prosecuted for treason. Sadly, I doubt justice is coming for them or any of the Communist Democrats until Jesus is their judge at the White Throne Judgment.

Just how deep are enemy foreigners in every facet of American society? Apparently now they're even in the military; seems as if everyone who doesn't like us has their hand thrust deep down Uncle Sam's pants! Now with Biden at the helm, and we just learned a top general is a traitorous hack, they've got this country by the 'nadz. We don't want any of this, of course, but Biden's "build-back-better" has started off by killing American jobs, killing American lives, and giving all our wonderful military tech to the enemies of the United States. I wish we would be out of here by the time I wake up tomorrow, but I feel we're going to be around much longer than we'd like. Still, who knows but God.

As a Christian, I have prayed passionately for our country as we have continued to descend into deeper levels of lawlessness, division, and outright wickedness. I know that many of my Christian brothers and sisters are doing the same. Still, our nation seems to go from bad to worse, to the point where our leaders are happy to betray us with outright treason and then brag about how heroic their actions are. Honestly, it makes me sick to my stomach. At times I feel close to despair, but then I remember that God is still in charge. The United States must decline to make room for the rise of the former Roman Empire and the coming One World Government. Yes, this evil is hard to witness, but it is also a sign that things are falling into place. So I continue to pray for my country and for our leaders, as the Bible commands, but I also accept that God may allow this terrible decline to continue or even accelerate. Ultimately, to me this confirms that we are nearing the return of Jesus as He comes to judge the nations; but first, of course, He will return for His bride. And that hope gives me great comfort and joy no matter how far this country tumbles into darkness.
