Civilians are supposed to control the military, but not for personal political gain. That commitment had been questioned after the walk. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill.
But it was Milley, along with other senior officials, who was urging Trump not to carry out his threat to deploy active-duty troops in D. As part of that effort, he spent time at the main security operations center, working to ensure that National Guard members were in the right places and had what they needed to protect the city, so active-duty forces would not be required. Striding along the streets talking with Guard members, he was a formidable figure with his piercing look, close-cropped gray hair, bushy eyebrows and imposing size.
He talked openly about the need for troops to enable the peaceful protests while also preventing violence. Military generals are known for their egos, and Milley is no exception.
Reserved is not a word one would use to describe the Massachusetts native. He is forceful, given to bouts of temper but quick with a laugh and a sharp retort.

That the universe is paying attention to what we think and rearranging itself at every moment for us is a claim so preposterous that it attains a respectability simply by being so far out that many people will actually pause and ask whether it is true.
And that's why the book works for so many people. Far out claims have the advantage that they can attract people. And most importantly, thinking positive thoughts will work for its readers, so in that aspect, the book deliver on what it promises. But it works, not because of its premises, but because of the power within ourselves.
This book in fact devalues us as human beings. It ignores the essential message, that we can achieve so much when we believe in ourselves only because there is this tremendous energy within us. Thinking positive thoughts releases this power, and then we can achieve virtually whatever we put our minds on. We don't need the universe's help to achieve success, we are quite well equipped to help ourselves, thank you!!
But no matter how positive our thoughts, we are still bound to miss the occasional parking space though Frequent mentions. Walmart associate. Verified purchaser. The Secret is an inspirational book!

Kamala Harris accepted the Democratic Party's vice presidential nomination in a prime-time convention speech Wednesday that walked voters through her personal story, pitched them on the necessity of electing Joe Biden and herself this fall, and blasted President Trump's "incompetence" and "callousness" in the Oval Office.
Harris made history with her acceptance of the nomination as the first Black or Asian American woman to appear on a major party's presidential ticket. The California senator is just the fourth woman to be on such a ticket, after Democratic vice presidential nominee Geraldine Ferraro, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.
Speaking from Wilmington, Delaware, Harris spoke at length about her family and backstory, particularly the role her mother played in her life before she died of cancer.
Harris then touched on her career as a prosecutor and state attorney general, saying she's "fought for children, and survivors of sexual assault. On her vision of the country, Harris says it is of a place "where we may not agree on every detail, but we are united by the fundamental belief that every human being is of infinite worth, deserving of compassion, dignity and respect. On Trump, Harris said his "failure of leadership has cost lives and livelihoods" and said COVID's disproportionate impact on Black and brown communities is a byproduct of "structural racism.
The incompetence makes us feel afraid. The callousness makes us feel alone. Harris was the featured star of the convention's third night. So it was not an issue three weeks ago. Here's what we do know is: The speaker said she wasn't willing to do anything piecemeal and yet we have a piecemeal piece of legislation on a Saturday.
Why didn't she come in and do enhanced unemployment? Why didn't she do support for small businesses? Why didn't she come in and do money for education and daycare? I mean, if we're going to be serious about this, let's get serious about in and hopefully what will happen is the Republican senators will take this bill when it comes across. They'll amend it and actually address many of the things that are hurting America right now in terms of this pandemic response and be able to get it to the president's desk.
Sean Hannity asked the president this week about whether the Republicans are going to put out poll watchers to make sure that in-person voting will be safe and secure. And here was the president's answer. We're going to have sheriffs and we're going to have law enforcement, and we're going to have hopefully U. WALLACE: Why is the president talking about law enforcement at the polls, which you know from our history, is an old tactic that has been used, especially in the South, as a form of voter suppression, especially against minorities?
MEADOWS: Yeah, I think what we have is we need to make sure that our polls are safe and we need to make sure that the polling places continue to be there. I think what the president was really addressing is to make sure that if you want to show up and vote in-person, we're going to make sure that that is safe.
Whether you're voting for him or your voting for Joe Biden or you're voting for some other candidate And so, to the extent that we're going to deploy thousands of sheriffs, no, we're not going to do that. To the extent that we're going to make sure it's safe and if the judges at those polling places need any kind of security, we're going to make sure they have the resources to do that. The deep state, or whoever, at FDA, is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics.
But you know the president is holding a press conference this evening with the head of the FDA to announce, we've been told, a major breakthrough on therapeutics. So why is he tweeting out that some people at the FDA, the deep state at the FDA, is trying to hurt him and delay any kind of scientific progress until after the election? And what the president was specifically addressing is something that I've been involved with over the last three or four weeks, is a real frustration with some of the bureaucrats to think that they can just do this the way they normally do it.
We're facing unprecedented times, which require unprecedented action. This president's right to call it out and I can tell you that the announcement that's coming today should have been made several weeks ago.
It was a fumble by a number of people in the federal government that should have done it differently, and having been personally involved with it, sometimes you have to make them feel the heat if they don't see the light. I applaud the president for putting out the tweet, and I can tell you, it's not just on the announcement that's coming today. There are other actions that need to be taken to make sure that we get the protections for the American people quickly, safely, and securely, and we will do that.
But it's only with the unrelenting pressure of the president to make sure that gets done. He was -- the president said he was thankful for the support of people in QAnon, which led to this exchange. Does that sound like something you are behind? Does the president disavow, does he condemn QAnon? I can tell you you've spent more time talking on it, Chris, than we have in the White House.
I find it appalling that the media, when we have all of the important things that are going on, a list of top 20, that the first question at a press briefing would be about QAnon that I had to actually Google to figure out what it is. It's not a central part of what the president is talking about. I don't even know anything about it. I don't even know if it's credible. If we want to talk about conspiracy, let's get back to talking about how the FBI and others within the FBI spied on the Trump campaign.
I'll be glad to speak about that. It's a group that has -- is called by the FBI a domestic So, I can tell you that if it's a hate group, it's there, let's look at domestic terrorism and look at Antifa and a number of other areas, and quit spending time on something that 81 percent of Republicans don't even know what you're talking about.
Thank you, sir. We are going to talk about things that are important to the American people. Up next, we'll turn to a member of the Biden inner circle to discuss the Democratic convention and what promises to be all rough fall campaign.
WALLACE: Republicans say one of the things they're going to hit at this convention, at their convention, are things that Democrats didn't talk about this last week at their convention. Here is President Trump on the issue of urban violence. In response to press inquiries over recent weeks, he's made it clear he doesn't support defunding the police and he doesn't support violent protests.
What he does embrace is the tens of millions of Americans of all backgrounds who have taken to the streets in peaceful protest over recent months speaking to the long unaddressed issues of racial injustice and inequality in our country. We're not talking about defunding the police. We're talking about crime. And let me put up some very troubling numbers. Chicago has seen a 50 percent increase in homicides this year.
