After months of rumors, and recent reports that the Secretary had prepared his resignation letter, President Trump tweeted that he fired Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Trump used the word – “terminated.”

“Mark Esper has been terminated. I would like to thank him for his service,” said Trump.

In his Tweet, he also announced in his words that “Christopher C. Miller, the highly respected Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (unanimously confirmed by the Senate), will be Acting Secretary of Defense, effective immediately.”

Trump added that “Chris will do a GREAT job!”

So, who is Christopher Miller? The experiences that led to today’s appointment started at the beginning of Miller’s auspicious military-oriented career.

The Coup has finally been completed. Trump has been defeated to the delight of the BEAST (Fake News) the Mouth Piece of Satan. Biden will now undo virtually all that Trump accomplished leaving us vulnerable to all of our foreign enemies. The DOJ and the Supreme Court is our last line of defense. If they ignore his challenges, then they will have forsaken us. Lucifer will have won. Christ will have to come back to save us just before our final destruction. There will be a blood bath, in fact there will be a nuclear war, earth quakes, and pestilence, and many wars. We will be Slaves and know that we are slaves. No longer will we be Slaves Without Chains, but we will be at the mercy of Satan. And as you know, Satan has no mercy. Already Moochelle, and Harris, and many others are threatening to make up a Black List of all who supported Trump, and a free America. So if you doubt their intentions, think again. It is coming and the vultures are preparing for a great feast. Communist dogs will crack your bones. Socialism is just another form of Communism. If our Judges fail us we will be Slaves in every way ruled by the Upper Class of ruthless Billionaires who think they are superior to us lower vermin. For they view us as peons, serfs, slaves, and second or even third class citizens. So enjoy your party while you can, because it will be over sooner than you think. Have you not noticed that the Chinese leaders are virtually free from the effects of the Covid Virus? Even the Democrat leaders also, but nearly all of the leaders who love freedom and democracy have been hit with the virus. The bible is being fulfilled, the prophecies there are all coming true. Our only salvation is to turn to Jesus!

Sounds like he is definitely qualified. I have a feeling Trump has good reason for doing this.

I just sent the following letter to my Senators and Congressman. Every conservative should do the same.

Dear Sir / Madam,
As a Citizen of YOUR STATE HERE and this great country it is my opinion that every, and I mean every, allegation of voter fraud or disenfranchisement across this country must be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted when warranted. During this election it is particularly important that this be done before declaring a winner. The future integrity of our elections and the confidence in their results depend on it. This is and has been a systemic issue for years. Our president Donald J. Trump knew, as many of us have known for years that this occurs. Proving it is difficult as the most aggreges cases happen under the supervision of liberal authorities policing their own. That doesn’t lead to transparency or fair and open elections. I for one have suspected fraud for years. The president is expressing real concerns of real Americans like me. He is fighting for us. Regardless of where the totals land, it is imperative that fraud in the system be stamped out decisively and permanently with new requirements that ensure 1 citizen, 1 vote, for the good of this country.
 As a citizen and a conservative, I can say that this has been a long-standing issue for the past 30+ years. I have often felt that my vote has been disenfranchised by the fact that we do not have in place throughout this country proper checks and balances to ensure every vote is a legal vote. The argument that requiring voter I.D. is a way of suppressing the vote is a weak argument and quite frankly false. You need a valid I.D. for everything these days. It presents no burden to anyone. These days you can’t go to a bank, cash a check, apply for a credit card, apply for public assistance, board a plane, or in some cases even enter an amusement park or large event without proving who you are. It’s a non-argument. It’s also insulting to minorities to imply that they are too incompetent to obtain some form of I.D.
Our president knew the democratic party was going to try to win by fraud this year as did nearly every conservative. COVID -19 was used as a cover to open the door for massive voter fraud. Like voter I.D. it is a non-argument. If you can go to the grocery store, the liquor store, the coffee shop, a restaurant, riot, rally or protest, you can go to the poles and vote. Do you really think the American people are that stupid? Do we have proof yet, no, but anyone with an ounce of common sense knows it’s true? The last-minute changes and lack of oversite with respect to mail in ballots was intentional and deliberate. How exactly do you prove a ballot is fraudulent when you have no traceability? You can’t, and that’s why it was done this way. That’s why conservative pole watchers were impeded from doing their job while liberal pole watchers were not. In conservative counties they believe in fair and open elections, with transparency. The problem this time around is that President Trump turned out such a large number of votes, that he broke the system and exposed just how widespread the fraud really is. In order to pull off a win, the democratic party had to cheat so egregiously that the “voter turnout” was the largest it’s been since the 1900’s. Maybe it’s not true. Maybe there’s nothing there, but our elected officials owe us some answers. At some point the circumstantial evidence and application of common sense warrants a full evaluation.
You must ask yourself, why is there only one party that wants every ballot to count whether it can be verified or not. Why does only one party want no transparency. Why is only one party trying to keep our president from forcing a review of what happened. If you’ve done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide and should welcome a full review. 71,000,000 Americans demand it.
