Why is Trump loading up DOD with nut jobs?

https://www.cnn.com/2020/12/04/politics/trump-nominee-pentagon-martial-law/index.html

This fellow has tweeted, retweeted some of the most scurrilous conspiracies about everything. And he is slated to be second in command at the Defense Dept. He is for martial law. Now.
Is Trump setting up a coup using the military? Perhaps. Erdogan did. His buddy in investments who consolidated power when he staged a phony coup by some hapless officers.

    1. Why single out DOD? It is a curious question. But Trump is desperate and desperate men do desperate things. There is nothing going on in the world right now that needs a mishmash of leadership in defense. Unless Trump wants to start something.

      He told Bartiromo of FOX that he thinks DOJ and the FBI are in on the voting scandal. A paranoid and delusional man in the Oval Office is not comforting.

  1. RE: “Is Trump setting up a coup using the military?”

    Obviously. Take a look at this Executive Order from 2018:

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-imposing-certain-sanctions-event-foreign-interference-united-states-election/

    Expect the assets of all the major media to be seized, every employee, manager, executive and stock owner of Dominion Voting Systems to be arrested, and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to be transported to GITMO for rendition, where they will then concede the election in exchange for clemency.

    1. Of course we have to wonder why the new DOD assistant secretary calls for martial law. As did Flynn, the pardoned felon.

      Do you think we need martial law?

        No, not at the moment. The EO I referenced lays out a national response process that is sufficient, but less than martial law.

        My concern is that you seem to be carried away with a conspiracy theory. If you read the EO carefully, and take into account the expansion of cyber-command authorities that subsequently were enacted, you may sleep better: The election fraud we have seen is a big deal, but not enough to generate the military coup you apparently fear.

        1. There is no election fraud. Period.

          Trump keeps touting that lie so he can fill his pockets with cash from his fans as he goes out the door. Period.

          The man he is considering for 2nd in command at DOJ is a certified nutjob. Period.

          And I sleep just fine. Period.

          1. …”he can fill his pockets with cash”…

            I wonder how many suckers, uh, I mean, supporters have read the fine print that 75% of the money solicited to “defend the election” is actually going to his “leadership” PAC?

            P.T. Barnum is giving him a standing ovation.

        2. All of the “fraud” has been debunked. Yet here you and Trump keep repeating the lies. You are all under the impression that if you tell the lies often enough they will become true. Ummm Horse Hockey!

          But keep trying. The Trump legacy will be a fast vaccine and lots of bullshit.

          Is that a fact? I posted the video as an example of how ballot stuffing can be done in the age of electronic voting. If you can debunk it, I’d like to hear it.

          Note, however, that you’ll have to prove:

          a) Poll workers and observers were not expelled from the counting room.

          b) The ballot counting didn’t continue during their absence.

          c) There was no spike in votes counted for Biden subsequent to the time period the video documents.

          1. I gave you some links, but more importantly common sense dictates that surveillance cameras were not a state secret. Suitcases were ballot boxes. And Republican election officials said they did not kick out observers. And the pipe break was at 6 am, not in the evening.

            So believe what you want, but the facts are pretty clear once you get out of the echo chamber.

            But donate to Trump’s cash haul so he can live the good life with a pile of money. Don’t forget Giuliani and Ellis donations for their well being after Jan 20.

            Your “fact check” links don’t address the three criteria I listed very well:

            a) Poll workers and observers were not expelled from the counting room.

            The fact checkers admit that some poll workers and all observers left the room. Whatever the reason for that happening, the absence of the observers made the continuation of the count legally questionable.

            b) The ballot counting didn’t continue during their absence.

            The fact checkers admit that the counting continued without observers.

            c) There was no spike in votes counted for Biden subsequent to the time period the video documents.

            None of the fact checkers deal with this report, made here:

            https://pjmedia.com/election/matt-margolis/2020/12/04/kerik-biden-received-mathematically-impossible-spike-in-votes-when-suspicious-ballots-counted-in-georgia-n1192424

            I actually agree that the video is open to interpretation, but I don’t agree that the “debunking” your fact checkers attempt is valid. The video, after all, must be evaluated in light of other evidence, such as the witness affidavits and the tally record.

            That the GA officials certified the count the video and other evidence describes is a travesty.

          3. “ A senior source in Raffensperger’s office told Fox News that the video has been investigated and claims that it showed ballot fraud deemed unfounded, adding that Fulton County election officials had a designated observer at the location the entire time — a practice that has been in place since June.”

            FOX link I posted.

            No observer? BS.

            You never do. Even after NUMEROUS debunked theories and videos. But keep trying. I twould be entertaining if it weren’t so dangerous.

          5. Your desperation is so bad, I can smell it from here.

            Your continued baseless “evidence” is as bad as DOn’s idea concerning voter suppression: Republicans and Libertarians can vote on election day, the rest can vote the day after. Yes he actually posted that once. It may have been in jest, but I did not see the humor in it.
