This has to be the most chilling thing he has done.

This has to be the most chilling thing he has done.
Trump is attempting to order the Pentagon to defund the military newspaper "Stars And Stripes."

He's not making the moves he needs to make to ensure that the military backs him if he attempts a coup, that's nice.

It is still chilling. It is true for the past 40 years the GOP has been more successful in pandering to our military. But this story  just now, really is chiling. 

I really don't remember any other president, not even Nixon or Reagan or either Bush, going this far. This is bat shit insane. This is the act of a military state, not a free society.

I really hope this blows up in his face. 

It is bad enough the fucker attacks civilian press, but this really is nuclear sick shit.

RE: This has to be the most chilling thing he has done.
When the Watergate Hearings were going on I was in Sicily and a regular reader of S&S. I knew more from reading Doonesbury than I did from the OP-ED pages, Trudeau was truly in Heaven. Well, one bright Monday morning there was an announcement in place of Doonesbury. "Due to the political nature of this strip it will be replaced."

Tuesday and Wednesday: Some strip I'd never heard of before.

Thursday: "Due to the great volume of mail we have received we will be posting the Doonesbury strip on the OP-ED page."

We were heard. Hehe

It’s distressing, but not particularly surprising. Trump’s a fascist, and this is what fascists do.

It's odd to me that of all the things Trump has done this is the one to get your panties in a wad.

Anyway - he doesn't have the ability to stop it on his say-so alone. Congress would have to approve it.

I'm not going to get all jacked up over and opinion piece in USA Today. Let's wait till we hear something official.

In a way, I hope he does it. That would piss off yet another voting block. Great

Just saying it has already done that.  I follow "Vote Vets" on Facebook.  Not many happy campers there when it comes to Trump and his gang of thieves.

You’re clearly one of those people who have never heard about Article II, which ‘lets me do whatever I want’. Wink

I agree it isn't surprising, but out of all the dangerous vile shit he has done, this is the worst.

The fucker literally wants a military state like North Korea.

I will say one bright spot, recent polls among military are turning on him.
