He has never cared about America, its citizens, its future or anything but himself. In fact, as history well shows from his divisive lies, as well as from his unrestrained contempt for the rule of law and his related crimes, his conduct and mere existence have hastened the demise of democracy and of the nation. Our adversaries and our allies both recognize that even his potential re-election diminishes America on the world stage and ensures continued acceleration of the domestic decline we are currently enduring. If that re-election actually happens, the consequences will extinguish what, if anything, remains of the American Dream.”

Mark Milley, retired chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Trump

We are unique among the world’s militaries,” We don’t take an oath to a country, we don’t take an oath to a tribe, we don’t take an oath to a religion. We don’t take an oath to a king, or a queen, or a tyrant or a dictator.”

“And we don’t take an oath to a wannabe dictator. We take an oath to the Constitution and we take an oath to the idea that is America – and we’re willing to die to protect it.” 

[The U.S. Constitution might need protecting in the not-too-distant future. I suspect Ty Cobb and Mark Milley are the type of people we need to protect it. I have little doubt that Cobb and Milley are tougher and smarter than Trump, and I pray they can stop him in his tracks, if it proves to be necessary.]
