Why didn’t President Trump “cross the Rubicon” in January of 2020? That’s a question that’s plagued some of us for more than two years now. He could have declared an emergency and forced the five main swing states to hold do-over elections with the help of the National Guard. It may or may not have legally meant violating the Posse Comitatus Act, but it would have saved the country from Joe Biden’s illegitimate takeover of the White House, which has made millions of Americans suffer needlessly.
It may be decades before we ever know the full truth of what happened in January 2020, but we know a little bit more now. Newsweek is reporting that Trump was in fact betrayed by the US military on January 6th.
There were two prevailing theories as to why Trump didn’t cross the Rubicon on January 6. One was that the Secret Service warned Melania that Barron would be killed if Trump didn’t back down from fighting the election fraud, and she convinced Trump to give up the fight. The other theory was simply that the military was working directly against Trump in an act of the highest sort of treason. This Newsweek report makes it look like the second theory is true (although technically, both theories could still be true).
When Trump fired the completely worthless Bill Barr in December of 2020, a guy named James Rosen became the Acting Attorney General. When Rosen became the Acting AG on December 24, 2020, he immediately assembled a team of FBI agents and military special operators. These “commandos,” as Newsweek describes them, had shoot-to-kill authorization and were deployed among the protesters at the US Capitol on January 6th.
Remember when Trump asked for 20,000 National Guard troops in DC on January 6th, to help keep things from getting out of hand? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser refused. Instead, they allowed the protesters to be met and “dealt with” by the Capitol Police and DC Metro Police – the two police forces that just so happen to be under the control of Pelosi and Bowser (and therefore not under the control of the Commander in Chief).
Here’s where it starts to get very wonky. Newsweek reports that the commandos with shoot-to-kill authority were under the control of the FBI:
“The presence of these extraordinary forces under the control of the Attorney General—and mostly operating under contingency plans that Congress and the U.S. Capitol Police were not privy to—added an additional layer of highly armed responders. The role that the military played in this highly classified operation is still unknown, though FBI sources tell Newsweek that military operators seconded to the FBI, and those on alert as part of the National Mission Force, were present in the metropolitan area.”
The Biden regime has been calling it the “National Mission Force” since word of this operation was finally leaked to the press. That makes it sound like it was a team of federal officers. But it wasn’t. It was a joint team of “highly armed responders” that included military members with shoot-to-kill orders.
Did you know that January 6th was a “highly classified operation,” as Newsweek is calling it, which involved members of the US military? A lot of people probably suspected it, but this is the first time a mainstream news outlet has been able to confirm that fact.
And why were these military forces under the control of the Acting Attorney General? James Rosen testified before Congress in May of 2021, but his answers about these mystery “National Mission Force” soldiers were deliberately vague. He did say under oath, however, that an “interagency” task force center was set up at FBI Headquarters on January 5th – a day before the protests – and that the center was staffed full-time by Department of Defense employees and FBI agents. There it is again. The Department of Defense? Really?
So, we had the Pentagon and the Department of Defense running a “highly classified operation” against Trump supporters on January 6, and we had military commandos in the crowd with shoot-on-sight authority. That is a clear violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, and an act of high treason.
Someone deployed troops against Trump supporters and placed them under the control of the Acting Attorney General. The reason why Trump didn’t cross the Rubicon is that the generals were not on his side. They were busy running a classified operation against the Commander in Chief.
Trump announced in a speech over the weekend that he’s planning to fire 50,000 federal employees when he gets back in the White House in 2025. Let’s hope he starts with the entire command structure of the US military, and gets rid of every woke general in the service.
