Fox News host Tucker Carlson called Thursday for the firing of Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark Milley after he claimed that Milley, a top military commander, repeatedly undermined President Donald Trump’s presidency.
Carlson began his Thursday evening monologue by noting an open note published by two former top U.S. Army officers in Defense One, in which they asked Milley to make sure Trump didn’t try to steal the 2020 election.
“If Donald Trump refuses to leave office,” the former officers began, “the United States military must remove him by force, and you must give that order.”
“You must remove the president by force,” Carlson said, referencing the letter. “That was a little shocking. What country is this?
“Even the usual power-mad partisans in the national news media began to wonder if that was a good idea. Slate.com, of all places, reminded its readers that, no matter how orange Donald Trump might be, military coups generally turn out to be unwise,” he added.
After noting that the Pentagon rejected the suggestion and that the letter was no longer being used as a story in the newspaper, Carlson continued to give examples from a book written by two Washington Post reporters. This book allegedly details the work of Milley to counter Trump’s directives to pull out of Afghanistan.
Carlson used the book to illustrate his point. He said Milley “describes Donald Trump, and the millions of supporters him, as Adolph Hitler.” He also stated that Trump’s four-star general, Adolph Hitler, described the thousands who attended his speech in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6, 2017, the day of the Capitol riot, as “brownshirts” — the paramilitary arm of the Nazi party.
“‘This is a Reichstag moment,’ Milley said. ‘The gospel of the Führer.’ Those are quotes. Think about that,” said Carlson.
“Your grandfather joined the U.S. military to risk his life fighting the Nazis. Now the head of the US military calls you a Nazi for having your grandfather’s political views. What do you think of that?” the host continued.
Carlson later stated that Milley was ultimately responsible both for the deployment of thousands of National Guard soldiers to Washington for Joe Biden’s inauguration and for the razor wire and perimeter fencing.
At one point, Carlson said, citing the book, “Milley then gave a speech straight out of a 90’s Bruce Willis flick. ‘Everything’s going to be okay. We’re going to have a peaceful transfer of power. We’re going to land this plane safely. This is America. It’s strong. The institutions are bending, but it won’t break.’”
Soon after the November election, the host continued in citing yet another example of potential insubordination to the commander-in-chief, “the Post reported, ‘Milley … began informally planning with other military leaders, strategizing how they would block Trump’s order to use the military in a way they deemed dangerous or illegal.’
“Now, wait a second. Is the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff the guy who’s empowered by our constitution, our democracy, to make those decisions? No, he’s not. We have civilian leadership, he can’t make them independently, if he disagrees, he can resign. But he can’t make them independently,” Carlson said.
He also mentioned that Milley had talks with Nancy Pelosi, the House Speaker, who wanted to learn more about his strategy with the other Joint Chiefs.
“She wanted to know that they were doing things that were illegal, taking control of the military from civilian-elected leaders. Milley confirmed that they had done just that,” said Carlson.
“Ma’am,” Milley told the Speaker, “I guarantee you that we have checks and balances in the system.”
Carlson stated that Milley had interfered with Trump’s decision to name a new CIA Director before he left office.
“According to the Post, some of those ‘checks and balances’ he referred to involved undermining the president’s authority to choose his own CIA director. When the president reportedly considered firing Gina Haspel who runs the CIA and replacing her with Kash Patel in the closing days of his administration, we now know that Milley pressured the president’s chief of staff not to do that, to keep Haspel. ‘What the hell is going on here?’ Milley asked Trump’s chief of staff. ‘What are you guys doing?’” Carlson told his audience.
“This is lunacy, it’s not how the government is supposed to work, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs should not be having that conversation, expressing those views, he should leave if he can’t keep them to himself,” said the host. “That quote there is grounds for Mark Milley’s immediate termination.”
The Fox News host went on to suggest that Milley and the Joint Chiefs also sabotaged the Trump administration’s peace deal with the Taliban in Afghanistan.
“On February 29 of last year, the Trump administration reached a deal with the Taliban to end U.S. military involvement in the country after only 20 years. Immediately, the Pentagon — led by Mark Milley — conspired to kill the deal, which they are not allowed to do under our Constitution, but they did it anyway,” he said.
According to a report by the Grayzone, “With startling swiftness and determination, Pentagon officials and military leadership exploited the open-ended terms of the ceasefire to derail the implementation of the agreement.”
“The head of U.S. Central Command, Kenneth MacKenzie, testified before Congress that the deal would be determined by ‘conditions on the ground’ — meaning, not by civilian leaders in Washington, but by the Pentagon,” Carlson explained.
“Again, a threat to democracy. Acting unilaterally, the Pentagon launched more than 30 drone attacks and eight-night raids led by Special Operations forces against the Taliban. Within weeks, the peace deal was dead. They killed it,” he said, adding that few in the mainstream media seem to be concerned about these collective actions.
“The question is: why is Mark Milley still in command of the US military? This is not a small question. If what the Washington Post reporters are reporting is true, it’s a question we need to deal with right now,” Carlson concluded.

Hunter Biden Seen Partying On Tropical Beaches After Art Sale Payday
Selling elementary school-level paintings for six figures certainly does afford Hunter Biden the opportunity to live like a movie star. The 51-year-old son of the President was spotted last week surfing in Malibu with former professional surfer Strider Wasilewski.
The UK Daily Mail published the exclusive video footage of Hunter surfing. Watch it HERE.
Hunter is living in Malibu now. He’s renting a $20,000 a month oceanfront home where he lives with his South African wife Melissa Cohen and their son, one-year-old Beau.
Several months ago, Hunter dumped the $5.4 million Venice Beach mansion he had been renting in favor of the elite beaches of Malibu in order to give his family more privacy.
It’s good to be a Biden.
Last month, the White House attempted to downplay the ethics concerns over the President’s troubled son’s art “profession,” claiming that all buyers of his so-called “art” would remain anonymous to both Hunter and the White House.
Jen Psaki tries to spin Hunter Biden's face-to-face meetings with prospective buyers of his art:— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) July 22, 2021
"Hunter Biden, just like any child of a president, should be able to pursue their professions and their passions." pic.twitter.com/871FI8U9PW
But in reality, there is no way for the White House to enforce such a claim.
Reporters repeatedly pressed White House press secretary Jen Psaki about the feasibility of guaranteeing that Hunter would not know who was buying his paintings. And rather than address their concerns directly, Psaki simply repeated that the buyers would remain anonymous.
When asked about Hunter’s meeting with people at the gallery showing and what would prevent a potential buyer from telling Hunter that he was a buyer, Psaki deflected.
To believe that Hunter will follow these guidelines is deeply naïve. Hunter Biden isn’t exactly a trustworthy person. He has a history of drug abuse, and he has a long history of exploiting his father’s position for personal financial gain by selling access to his father.
The fact is, not one thing in the White House’s plan would stop a potential buyer from contacting Surf City Biden and telling him “Hey, I was the one who bought that piece of garbage for half a million dollars. Any chance I can get you to set up a meeting with your father?”
Last week during a podcast interview, Hunter was asked to respond to critics who say his art sales present a potential ethics problem.
His response? “F*ck them.”
What a prince.
More NY Prosecutors Seek Evidence Against Cuomo
Prosecutors from at least five New York counties are now seeking evidence from the report accusing Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.
District attorneys from Manhattan, Westchester, Nassau and Albany counties want to see the evidence collected in the investigation for the report, according to CNBC. In addition, the Oswego County District Attorney also wants documents and information relating to one of the alleged incidents, WSYR-TV said.
The investigation into Cuomo found that he sexually harassed multiple current and former state government employees, state Attorney General Letitia James had announced Tuesday.
The investigation was conducted by two outside lawyers. The Associated Press said the probe also found that the Cuomo administration was a “hostile work environment” and that it was “rife with fear and intimidation.”
CNBC reported that a spokesperson for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said: “When our office learned that the Attorney General’s investigation of the governor’s conduct was complete, our office contacted the Attorney General’s Office to begin requesting investigative materials in their possession pertaining to incidents that occurred in Manhattan.”
And Westchester County District Attorney Mimi Rocah said she intends to launch an inquiry into whether the alleged sexual misconduct by Cuomo that occurred in her jurisdiction was “criminal in nature.”
Nassau County District Attorney Joyce Smith said in a statement: “We are reviewing the deeply disturbing findings of the Attorney General’s report regarding the Governor’s alleged conduct. We have requested the Attorney General’s records related to any incidents that occurred in Nassau County and will thoroughly and expeditiously investigate any potential crimes.
Albany County District Attorney David Soares has already announced he is launching a criminal probe of Cuomo in light of the findings.
Oswego District Attorney Greg Oakes told WSYR he wants to review all pertinent materials relating to Virginia Limmiatis, who is listed as one of the 11 women with a complaint against Cuomo in the investigation by James’ office.
“I will be requesting all documents and information relating to the alleged incident from the NYS Attorney General’s Office to determine what, if any, action can be taken,” Oakes said. “I want to make sure that I have all relevant information prior to making any decision, which includes speaking with Ms. Limmiatis, if she is willing.”
Cuomo has denied the results of the investigation. He claimed the “facts in the cases are “much different than what has been portrayed.”
“I want you to know directly from me that I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances,” he said. “I am 63 years old. I’ve lived my entire adult life in public view. That is just not who I am, and that’s not who I have ever been.”
Rnc Spokesperson Paris Dennard Talks About Gop Diversity And Support For The Black Community
Recently, former Toledo mayor Donna M. Owens got the chance to speak to Paris Dennard, a fellow GOP and the current Republican National Committee (RNC) National Spokesperson and Director of Black Media Affairs.
In an exclusive interview on Essence, a black women’s lifestyle website, Dennard talked about the changing landscape within the Grand Old Party. The popular belief that cultural and racial diversity is only a priority of the Democratic Party isn’t true at all. In fact, the Republicans have made strides in promoting inclusiveness to achieve ultimate balance and harmony in American politics.
“The Republican Party is even more diverse in 2021 thanks to the intentional efforts to expand the reach of our party in diverse communities. In the last election, Republicans flipped 15 Congressional seats from Democrat to Republican. In each of those seats that flipped to the GOP, the elected winner was either a woman or minority,” Dennard stated.
“We added two Black Republicans to Congress, Representatives Byron Donalds (R-FL) and Burgess Owens (R-UT). And we continue to have Black women vie for the GOP nomination for a host of races ahead of the 2022 midterm election. This year, Winsome Sears made history by becoming the first Black Republican woman nominee for Lt. Governor in Virginia. In 2019, Roxy Ndebumadu was elected to the City Council in Bowie, Maryland,” Dennard added.
Dennard, a proud black man himself, has served as the chairman of the Arizona Teenage Republicans during his highschool days. Since his youth, GOP blood has been running deeply into his veins. Regardless of his color and cultural identity, he feels at home with an organization that he shares his beliefs and ideologies with.
“Members of the Republican Party come from all walks of life. We are a pro-life party. The GOP supports issues that Black Americans care about like school choice in education, investing in HBCUs (with former President Donald Trump providing permanent HBCU funding for the first time);” Dennard said.
When asked by Owens about voting rights, which has been one of the pressing issues for Black Americans, Dennard cited the struggles of his predecessors, when they fought hard for the freedom to choose.
“My family comes from Cordele, Georgia so I understand the sacrifices made by my ancestors to help secure Black Americans and women the right to vote. Too many people that look like me literally fought, bled, sacrificed, and died for my right to vote as a Republican because we are free to have our own opinions, free to have our own thoughts and free to vote for any political party,” Dennard elaborated.
“We know there are millions of Black voters who are willing to give the Republican Party a first or second look and want to vote for us. When they do, it should be safe and secure and their actual vote,” Dennard added.
