CNN op-ed Has the Audacity to Suggest Military Action Against Trump in 2020 if he Refuses to Concede Election

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


On Saturday, CNN, the cable outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news, published an op-ed that suggested the military be used in the event Donald Trump refuses to concede defeat in the 2020 election.  In addition, the author, Joshua Geltzer, made an egregious error in his ridiculous article.

According to Geltzer:

…our civilian and uniformed Defense Department leaders have a role to play. The health of our democracy rests, in part, on not involving the military in transfers of power. And that should continue. But imagine the most extreme scenario, with Congress certifying Trump’s defeat but Trump refusing to leave office. In those circumstances, the military would no longer owe its loyalty to Donald Trump as of noon on January 20, 2021. And it’s worth asking the Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as they testify before Congress in coming months, to affirm that they understand that and would act consistently with it.

 

These are dire thoughts. But we live in uncertain and worrying times. Perhaps, in 2016, Donald Trump never really intended to contest a loss at the ballot box. Still, having seen him in action as President, it’s surely best, as we hurtle toward 2020, to be prepared in case President Trump makes good on his threats from 2016 — now with far more power at his disposal.

Translation: If Trump carries through with his 2016 threat to possibly question any victory by Hillary Clinton in 2020, the military should take action and physically remove him from office since they won’t have any loyalty to him.

To start with, his premise is fundamentally flawed since Clinton LOST in 2016 and it shouldn’t even be given the time of day.  But there’s something seriously wrong with his alleged “analysis.”  If you haven’t caught it by now, I’ll point it out to you.

He claims that “…the military would no longer owe its loyalty to Donald Trump as of noon on January 20, 2021.”

The military does NOT ever pledge its loyalty to the president.  It does, however, pledge loyalty to the Constitution, promising to defend it from all enemies foreign and domestic.

Given Geltzer’s Georgetown bio, he should know this.

In my humble opinion, this is just another far-left fantasy designed to further inflame the insane leftists who seem to want a second bloody civil war over Trump’s 2016 election.

What say you?  Do you think liberals are really pushing for armed conflict in the United States?  Let us know what you think in our poll, here.
