Trump’s generals: President turns to military men for counsel, order

by
August 8, 2017

When retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly was sworn in as White House chief of staff last week, he took command of a Trump administration that now has more military commanders in top spots than any since Eisenhower’s.

The generals hand-picked by Trump — Kelly, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary James Mattis — share a penchant for passing their opinions up the chain of command in the bluntest of terms. Their prominence in the administration belies the common perception the commander in chief prefers to be surounded by yes men.

“Jim Mattis defines ‘speaking truth to power’ in my view, and I like to think I do as well,” said Kelly, speaking exclusively with Fox News in his first interview since becoming chief of staff. “I observed him do it routinely — every day — as we planned the invasion of Iraq and its aftermath.”

A fourth general, Joint Chiefs Chairman Joseph Dunford, is a holdover from the prior administration yet shares many of the same qualities that have endeared other high-ranking military men to Trump.

    THIS IS GREAT, WE ARE GOING TO NEED THEM AND TRUMP IS LOADING UP HIS TEAM WITH GOOD MEN AND WOMEN.

    PRAY FOR TRUMP AND SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN. I HAVE VERIFED THE CAMPS, IF YOU DONT BELIEVE, GET BUSY AND VERIFY YOURSELF. WHAT THEY WONT DO TO COVE THIS UP. PRAY FOR AMERICA.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE A MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.
