Which article of the UCMJ specifically do you believe the President "abrogated"?

Indeed, but abrogating the UCMJ isn’t within the scope of the COC powers, unless I really misunderstand the Constitution and our laws.

The President can re-write (or totally revoke) the UCMJ at his personal discretion. He can also declare a National Emergency and suspend the Constitution and implement Martial Law (again ... writing the rules and seeing to their enforcement). And there's nothing you could do about it. Yes ... Summary Execution goes right there.

No gleeful cackling on this side of the screen. That's just the facts. You don't think this Russia Hoax, Ukraine Hoax, "we've got the Giuliani butt-dial thing" doesn't rise to the level of National Emergency? At his whim, the President can make this a reality.

How can anyone think this is OK?

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

This news is splashing on International Headlines. The President putting his wingtip up an insubordinate's ass, where the whole world was witness to _both_ events ... makes me think this was more than okay. Necessary even.

Am hoping Deep State Spencer is a domino.


Well, I see it as abuse of power - - whether it's legal or not.

And I see an issue - - that this type action is supported.

POTUS is legally authorized to step in.

What is truly sad, is that any Senior Ranking Courts Martial convening authority could have stepped in too.

And they did not.

How is firing a subordinate an abuse of power?

Really.

This line of thought is just, well. . . . . sad and rather pathetic.

A lot of what Trump does is abuse of power IMO

Well, you're welcome to your opinion.

*shrugs*

Some people think coprophagy is a viable option as well.

Their opinion accounts for yours.

In my opinion.

Spencer is the embodiment of Honor courage and commitment.

no heroes in history kills civilians, and kills a captured combatant unarmed and blindfolded, and poses with the dead body and pleads self defense in said murder trial.

those aren't heroes. that's not how you avenge fallen soldiers; sorry big man, future cop!

The truth? That he's president?

No - I get it. What I can't handle is how much respect he gets on this board for his whole Commander In Chief Cos-play thing

That gives me a little bit of trouble

But I guess this Gallagher guy is cool and deserved a pass. Him and A$AP Rocky

No.

You are equally free to express your opinion, but I don't see the validity.

Respectfully, this is why you're unable to have an actual discussion, you're views and opinions are skewed and since you maintain a stubborn stance on Trump, there isn't anything of a real value in your interactions.

This post makes no sense, what issues do you have on established constitutional authority since Americas inception?

No sense you say?

Well - I wasn't talkin' about no constitutional authority - let's just leave it there

But hey, I know Trump is your guy. You love him, you respect him

Plus, he's all you got - so knock yourselves out

"Well that's just your opinion man."

Trump hasn't signed half the executive orders Obama did in his first term. Were you bothered by that?...
Unlikely.

By the sounds of some here it seems this may be included in the articles of impeachment.

Who does Trump think he is, President of the United States of America?
I mean come on, he lost the popular vote....remember?
