‘Mad Dog’ Mattis Rips Into Trump’s Photo Op and Troop Deployment Threat

From The American Conservative:

President Trump’s former Secretary of Defense James Mattis has taken umbrage with the current Secretary of Defense’s use of the term “battlespace” referring to a federal security crackdown to recent protest-inspired violence on U.S. city streets. And that’s not all.

“When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens – much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside.”

He referred to reports yesterday that peaceful protesters around the White House – as well as media and Episcopal clergywere forcibly removed with pepper balls, flash bangs and the aggressive use of plastic shields from the area to make way for the president’s photo op in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church. The county government of nearby Arlington, Virginia, was so incensed by the spectacle that they removed all of their police officers from the city by 8 p.m. that night.

  1. The never ending excitement of “Orange Man Bad.” When he actually makes serious mistakes, no one bothers to listen bc there’s so much bs.

    Nice article though (the full article is good).

  2. Mattis seems to ignore that barricades protecting the White House were knocked down by protesters. Pelosi, third in line to the Imperial Purple crooned about how Trump was frightened in the White House.

    How far are the globalists willing to go? Trump should never gamble on that.

    1. “How far are the globalists willing to go?”

      Different globalists are willing to go different distances.

      For example, globalist Donald Trump was willing to go downstairs and cower in the Fuhrerbunker, and then across the street to church once the troops cowed the serfs for him.

      1. Going to the safe room when security is threatened by a breach is probably standard operating procedure for Trump Tower as well.

        Trump also went right back out. Clearing a few serfs does not rule out snipers.

        America’s social civil war is a high stakes game.

  3. That is such a farce coming from the Bankster puppet!
