      By Oren Liebermann and Barbara Starr, CNN 53 mins ago

      America’s most senior general Mark Milley and the entire Joint Chiefs of Staff, which is comprised of the heads of each military branch, issued a statement Tuesday condemning the violent invasion of the US Capitol last week and reminding service members of their obligation to support and defend the Constitution and reject extremism.

      “We witnessed actions inside the Capitol building that were inconsistent with the rule of law. The rights of freedom of speech and assembly do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition and insurrection,” they wrote in the statement.

      In addition, the statement referenced the certification of the election by Congress and said, “President-elect Biden will be inaugurated and will become our 46th Commander in Chief.”

      This story is breaking and will be updated.

      It also gives sergeants and chief petty officers something else to scream about to the lower ranks. Just part of the oil that keeps the machine moving.

      It’s also a signal that they don’t support Trump, but we already knew that.

      @ohiobarbarian:

      What about the new people Trump put in there? How

      high are they on the ladder, and are they just covering

      their butts?

        The same generals and admirals have defied Trump several times already. They wouldn’t go to war with Iran, at least once. They wouldn’t intercept Chinese or Iranian ships going to Venezuela. And they really dug in their heels after that fiasco in DC when Trump used them as a photo op to rile his base up at a BLM protest.

        Oh, and one older brother of a friend of mine is a retired 4-star general who actually knows Chairman Milley. He says they despise The Donald. I don’t think he’s making it up. So even if Trump’s Acting Secretary ordered something rash, they’d refuse.

      From the reports I’ve read, they have infiltrated all the service branches but the Army has the most. Some state police are also about 80% infiltrated by Nazis depending on the state.

      Participation in white supremacist groups was against regulations when I was in the Navy. But troops don’t always follow regulations.

      Generals and Admirals announcing that Biden will be the CinC is a good reminder. But Nazis go underground when they lose…. And they always eventually lose.
