Trump was the only president courageous enough since Eisenhower to question the military industrial complex, which now is akin to attacking gods of this country. If he loses the election, this will be at the top of the list as to why.

Biden is who they want because Biden will take us to war with Syria and has openly condemned the President reducing troops anywhere in the world. A vote for Biden is a vote for endless and more wars. Counter productive, pointless and absurdly profitable wars.
I thought President Trump spent billions in rebuilding the US military. How is that questioning the "military industrial complex" ? Seem to me he was feeding it.

Gen. Milley the chairman of JCS later issued a public statement that the armed forces will not have any involvement in any events or developments that may occur during the election campaign and in respect of the voting. Milley said the military will leave matters to the civilians to settle election disputes according to the Constitution.

That was however before Trump just said he will not respect a peaceful transfer and transition of power in accordance with the election outcome. Trump of course doesn't have the wits to know that when Trump himself would resist a peaceful transition of power it leaves he himself open to exactly that occurring against him as Potus / CnC. Indeed, the active duty armed forces chiefs and commanders know Trump took his oath of office then wiped his ass with it in a same day turnaround.


Sep 24th 2020
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley had 'shouting match' with Donald Trump to force him to back down over sending in troops to clear protesters from America's cities
  • Trump said he wanted to control protests by sending active military onto streets
  • Milley stood firm and said that the task was one for law enforcement, not soldiers
The nation's top military officer, General Mark Milley, got into a 'shouting match' with President Donald Trump after the president spoke of his wish to end the country's riots and protests by sending in active military forces into American cities. A senior military official alleges the pair argued loudly before Trump finally backed down.

Responding to Trump's request to have troops on the ground in major U.S. cities where riots and protests were taking place, Gen. Milley is said to have stayed firm, responding: 'I'm not doing that. That's for law enforcement.' The protests in Washington were among those nationwide following the death of Floyd, a black man who died when a white police officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes. The official who is said to have overheard the argument told the New Yorker, ''We have a bully in the White House, and a bully needs a bully.' Milley is said to have stood up to his boss in the Oval Office on the subject of ordering troops out onto the street and suggested that the states should handle their own affairs alongside local law enforcement and the National Guard.



The events referenced occurred in June yet this story just came out during this week. So we have yet more previously confidential and controversial issues coming out at this time. Trump's dayze are numbered.

Trump has advocated building the strength of the military as a deterrent to other nations. He has also advocated a reduction in the size of our forces in foreign countries and particularly in combat areas that have been going on for in some cases 19 years, such as Afghanistan. The military industrial complex makes more money if wars are using up supplies.

True, but they also make money in the build up and updating of our military. Trump supports the MIC. Trump is no Ike.

Ask Tulsi Gabbard about the military-industrial complex. The Dems assassinated her because she was anti-war and their masters in the military-industrial complex demanded it.
Do you just make up chit to have something to post?
Oh, you can now safely call what gino is posting by its name: shit, specifically of the loony QAnon variety

The swamp is deep. No one complained when Obama remade our military leadership in his image.
You mean black.

11 former US military flag officers deliver their own personal warnings about the Trump presidency.
Democrats loved their Generals so much
The same generals that lost 2 wars, and over 8,000 soldiers/sailors/airmen. Not to mention the tens of thousands of horribly wounded.

****ing losers!

Like you give two shits about the military.

He only questions the “military” side. The “industrial” side gets a blank check so his fellow billionaires can make bank.
