Sworn to Protect and Defend
Greetings Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard members.
Whether you are on active duty, in the Reserves, or in the National Guard, each and every one of you from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to the enlisted E-1’s have given your sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Well, the time is rapidly approaching when you may have to exercise your oath from a domestic enemy, Donald Trump. In this election year, in an interview with Chris Wallace of Fox News, President Donald Trump has publicly refused to state whether or not he would accept the results of the election should he lose . Besides this interview, President Trump has repeatedly tried to convince America that mail-in voting is ripe with fraud (patently untrue). In 2016, when he lost the popular vote, but won the Electoral College, he claimed that there were “millions and millions” of people who fraudulently voted at poling booths. Further, by his own insistence, he added a wealthy donor to his administration as Postmaster General. Right afterwards, a series of directives have the USPS in turmoil and have caused slowdowns in mail delivery. President Trump then uses this slowdown to argue that the USPS will be unable to deliver mail-in votes in time to be counted. While a bill was passed in the US House of Representatives to provide billions for the postal service, President Trump and Senate Republicans are blocking funding. He is building his reasons to refuse to step down as President,
President Trump is well known for doing things his own way, even if his actions are criminal. He has had people in the White House defy the Hatch Act, he has ordered the stripping of rights granted by law to the LGBTQ+ community, he is trying to remove protections for Americans with pre-existing medical conditions by having the Affordable Care Act (ACA) overturned, he has used public funds to pay his own resorts on Presidential trips here and abroad, and he has had his campaign refuse to pay the costs to cities around the country for extra security provisions when he’s appeared there, just to name a few.
He is unafraid of being held accountable for anything he has done, or will do while in office. But, why? It is clear that Donald Trump plans to try to hold on to power if he loses the election. He wants to move from being an elected president to becoming an authoritarian dictator of the United States. He will have help from his base of white supremacists/nationalists. These supporters are frothing at the mouth to have a civil war to accomplish President Trump’s goals.
Make no mistake, there are white supremacists/nationalists in the US Armed Forces that the Services are trying to deal with. These members must be revealed for who they really are and removed from every branch for the good of the service and for the protection of the nation. It is incumbent upon every service member to report these racists to their command authority. Otherwise, how can the American public maintain trust and faith in our armed forces?
Finally, each service branch must be prepared to stand again President Trump if he loses the election and refuses to leave office. His continued presence would be in violation of the US Constitution each of you swore to protect and defend. It is your duty. Any officer or enlisted member who refuses to act to remove Donald Trump in this situation would be a traitor to their oath and American people. The only way he can continue after losing the election is to have the US military backing him. The military is needed in order for a dictator to rule. Do not succumb to being accomplices to such treason against the United States of America.
Let no tyranny overthrow that which you have served honorably!
