The Joint Chiefs

The Joint Chiefs of Staff is the body of the most senior uniformed leaders within the United States Department of Defense. Their primary function is to serve as advisers to the President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, the Homeland Security Council and the National Security Council on military matters. The Joint Chiefs of Staff consists of a chairman (CJCS), a vice chairman (VJCS), and the service chiefs of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, and the chief of the National Guard Bureau. Each of the individual service chiefs, outside their JCS obligations, work directly under the secretaries of their respective military departments, e.g. the secretary of the Army, the secretary of the Navy, and the secretary of the Air Force.

As part of their advisory role, the Joint Chiefs of Staff create what is called the Joint Doctrine:

The Joint Chiefs outline the Joint Doctrine through a series of Joint Publications (JP). These publications offer a trove of information which provide us an in-depth look at how the military operates. The first thing to point out from these JPs is the function and priorities of the DoD and the Military.

In Devolution - Part 6 & 8 I showed that the Military began actively surveilling the 2020 riots. This surveillance resulted in major push back from congress and the MSM.

These are just a few examples that convey the narrative that Trump’s enemies were trying to create. We know that President Trump started using the Military for surveillance activities no later than June 1st, 2020 and he didn’t invoke the Insurrection Act to do so—at least not that we know of. I firmly believe his justification for involving the Military came from Joint Publication 3-27 — Homeland Defense (HD).

Again, I will point out that I believe Devolution has been implemented because we are, in fact, at war - a point which I’ll solidify further below. Our military has a constitutional requirement to make the defense of our homeland their first priority. As such, the military’s involvement in the surveillance of protests and election theft only serve to make Devolution an even more viable scenario, as it clearly indicates that these matters are of vital interest to our national security.

Let’s dig deeper.

Chain of Command

In order to fully understand how Devolution would be enacted through the military, it’s important to understand the Chain of Command within our Department of Defense. Everything starts at the top with our President; the Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces. From there, the Chain of Command goes to the Secretary of Defense and then to the Combatant Commanders.

Here is another representation of the Chain of Command:

Combatant Command and Combatant Commanders

Combatant Commands (COCOMs), also known as a unified combatant commands, are the highest possible echelon of military command and are overseen by what’s called the Unified Command Plan (UCP). Each UCP sets forth basic guidance to all unified Combatant Commanders by:

  • Establishing their missions, responsibilities, and force structure.

  • Delineating the general geographical area of responsibility for geographic Combatant Commanders.

  • Specifies functional responsibilities for functional combatant commanders.

What are the Combatant Commands and who are the Combatant Commanders?

There are 11 COCOMs in total; each falling into a category designated as geographical or functional.

Seven of the COCOMs are designated as geographical, meaning they are responsible for all operations, etc., within a clearly defined actual location on or above the Earth — such as “Africa” or “Space.” They call these geographical locations the “area of responsibility”. The Combatant Commanders of the geographical COCOMs are listed below along with the dates they took office:

  • U.S. Northern Command

  • U.S. Southern Command

  • U.S. European Command

  • U.S. Africa Command

  • U.S. Central Command

  • U.S. Indo-Pacific Command

  • U.S. Space Command

Four of the COCOMs are designated as functional, meaning they are responsible for a clearly defined specific type of operation, etc., but across all geographical and spatial lines — for example, “cyber” or “special operations.” Operating worldwide across geographic boundaries allows the functional COCOMs to provide unique capabilities to the geographic COCOMs. The Combatant Commanders of the functional COCOMs are listed below along with the dates they took office:

  • U.S. Special Operations Command

  • U.S. Cyber Command - General Nakasone is also head of the NSA

  • U.S. Strategic Command

  • U.S. Transportation Command

To assume the rank of a Combatant Commander, the four-star general is recommended by the Secretary of Defense, nominated for appointment by the President of the United States, confirmed by the Senate and commissioned— at the President’s order— by the Secretary of Defense. Of the 11 current Combatant Commanders, 10 of them were installed during Trump’s presidency. The only one who has been installed during Biden’s “presidency” is Admiral John C. Aquilino, Commander of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command. It took me a moment to reconcile one of the commanders having been installed with Biden in office, but I came across this article which put me at ease:

Knowing Admiral Aquilino oversaw General Charles Flynn’s promotion is important. The Secretary of the Army is in charge of promoting the Commander of the U.S. Army Pacific Command, but I can’t imagine he would promote somebody if the Combatant Commander wouldn’t agree with it. We know the Flynn family is full of patriots so I’m sold here that Admiral Aquilino is a patriot as well.

Why Understanding the Organizational Structure of COCOMs Matters

I believe the Combatant Commanders play an integral role in Devolution. These are the commanders of our armed forces— the very people Secretary of Defense Chris Miller would have briefed if plans of Devolution were to be implemented. I believe the specifics of the Devolution plan were carried out by Ezra Cohen Watnick and the Special Operation Forces (Devolution - Part 3) which have been tasked with carrying out the Mission Essential Functions (MEFs). I’ll address these MEFs in greater detail my next article, but for now I will focus on a very specific attribute of this command structure. The only other people who would need to know that Devolution had been implemented would be the Combatant Commanders, and it would only be when the operation moves into the next phase (the reveal), that these commanders would provide orders down their individual chains of command as needed.

Think of it in terms of running a business. Chris Miller would be the CEO and the Combatant Commanders would be the heads of their respective departments. If the business needs to implement major changes, the CEO wouldn’t broadcast their plans immediately to every employee from every department, would they? Instead, the CEO would privately inform the heads of each department. Once everything was in place for the smoothest transition possible, the heads of each department would disseminate information as needed to those within their departments required to implement the change. In our scenario, the “major change” would be the reveal that Trump implemented Devolution because the election was stolen via foreign interference.

Think about that for a moment. Nobody outside of the Combatant Commanders would need to know.

This means any “woke” garbage appearing to come from our military doesn’t matter. Outside of the Combatant Commanders, nobody knows Devolution is happening, and it will remain that way until the operation reaches the next phase.

If that sounds difficult to swallow, read the following paragraph and focus on the highlighted parts:

The above paragraph is essential to understanding how Devolution would be possible even though Biden assumed office as “president” and filled out his staff in the Pentagon and the DoD with his own people. Each COCOM commander is the ultimate provider of command for all of our armed forces “‘in the field’ (as in not the White House and not the Pentagon)” during “peace, war, and contingency operations.”

If Secretary of Defense Chris Miller was provided proof that a foreign adversary not only interfered with our election, but to such an extent that the outcome of that election had been altered, he would have been obligated to share that proof with each of the COCOM Commanders. They would have recognized that the incoming Biden “administration” was not legitimate, and the contingency plan, Devolution, would have been implemented.

We still have a major obstacle to address regarding the Devolution theory. I have been saying all along that Devolution is based on the prerequisite that Trump and the military caught the CCP interfering in United States Elections. If that didn’t happen, it would be nearly impossible to surmise that Devolution is currently active. I won’t be able to show you definitive proof that our military has evidence of foreign interference in our election, but what I can do is provide you with circumstantial evidence showing the military was prepared to catch any foreign adversary interfering in our election. One of the previously discussed Combatant Commanders plays a major role. Election Security

Throughout the Devolution series I have shown you ways that Trump was “preparing the battlefield” in anticipation of foreign election interference by using executive powers. He issued numerous Executive Orders that are in play, but what was the military doing to “prepare the battlefield”?

I will do my best to show you here in chronological order.

May 8, 2018 - The military took key initiative at defending our United States elections by elevating Cybercom to Combatant Command.

The elevation of Cyber Command to a COCOM allows Cyber Command to report directly to the Secretary of Defense. Keep in mind that Cyber Command’s COCOM commander is General Nakasone and he is also the head of the NSA.

June 18, 2018 - President Trump directs the DoD to “immediately begin the process to establish Space Force as the 6th branch of the armed forces.” I point this out because I believe the Space Force played a complimentary role. I’ll elaborate some on that later.

July 23, 2018 - General Paul Nakasone (the head of the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command) confirmed that he has set up a task force to counter Russian cyberthreats to the United States.

That article is so important for multiple reasons:

  • It points out that General Paul Nakasone is the head of both the NSA and the U.S. Cyber Command (this point will come up again later).

  • It discusses Russia meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election by breaching multiple political organizations, although at that time it was considered as “operating under the threshold level of war” because during the 2016 election, “election systems” were not yet in the category of critical infrastructure.

  • Nakasone said a cyberattack from another government on U.S. critical infrastructure would cross the threshold into war, “and we would certainly respond.” In 2017, they classified “election systems” as critical infrastructure.

This is a bombshell. General Nakasone is essentially saying that since “election systems” are now classified as critical infrastructure, a cyberattack on election systems moving forward would cross the threshold into war. Reminder that the entire Devolution theory is based on the United States being at war, allowing Trump to exercise specific war powers:

General Nakasone tells us in July of 2018 that they anticipate our adversaries will “try to penetrate such things as our critical infrastructure.” They were very clearly preparing for any foreign interference in our elections.

August 16, 2018 - The Wall Street Journal published an article titled “Trump, Seeking to Relax Rules on U.S. Cyberattacks, Reverses Obama Directive”. The article is behind a paywall but I’ll post screenshots of some of the highlights.

By removing some of the obstacles in PPD-20, Trump allowed the military to respond directly to election interference without having to cut through “red tape.” Not only did he elevate CyberCom to a COCOM to protect election infrastructure and eliminate the “middle men” in the military’s chain of command itself, but in PPD-20, he also untied their hands by eliminating the unnecessary layers of federal agencies required to approve any plan of action.

April 29, 2019 - It was reported that the aforementioned task force named “the Russian Small Group” would become permanent.

July 23, 2019 - General Nakasone announced that the NSA would was creating a Cybersecurity Directorate to better protect the country against cyberthreats from foreign adversaries.

It’s important to remember that while they support their partners in federal agencies (DHS & FBI), the military also has a pulse on how many in those agencies have been corrupted. Knowing that is key. Remember that Dong Jingwei brought with him terabytes of data which included information on who was working for the CCP within our government and federal agencies. The military would know who they can share information with and whether they can share information at all. I suspect they didn’t share much information with corrupted agencies. Specific details about actual interference in our election would be highly classified, hence the “at the right classification level” comment from above.

December 9, 2020 - Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe announces Space Force will become the 18th member of the U.S. Intelligence community. Remember this is just three days prior to Ratcliffe joining president Trump in attending the Army - Navy football game. If you remember, from Devolution Part 8, the Army - Navy football game on December 12th is when I theorized that DNI Ratcliffe presented President Trump with the evidence of foreign interference.

I know everybody has been saying Space Force is the key to capturing the election theft but I believe they served more of a complimentary role to what Cybercom was doing.

“There is no strategic-level cyber capability without space”. Creating Space Force was necessary to give Cybercom and the NSA the maximum capabilities required to defend our election infrastructure. As usual, Trump and or military were forward-thinking as early as 2018 when they started the process to create Space Force.


Considering the information I have listed above, a very clear picture emerges. One can easily see that the military, through Cybercom and the NSA (both headed up by General Nakasone), was well-positioned and highly prepared to address any foreign interference in our election. There should be little doubt that if China did interfere in our November 3rd election— as many people, including Trump, have hinted at— the military caught them doing it. The only question that remains is what did they do with that information?

At the risk of stating the obvious, they either ignored it— in which case we are screwed— or they acted upon it. I have already shown you here how the very command structure of COCOMs allows for military action to be implemented entirely outside the purview of Congress, bureaucratic think tanks, and the corrupt media, indicating covert action is not only possible, it is highly probable, especially during a war in which our foreign adversary has infiltrated every level of our government.

General Nakasone said himself that a “cyberattack from another government on U.S. critical infrastructure would cross the threshold into war” and our election systems are in the category of critical infrastructure.

We are at a critical moment in our country’s history and its very survival hangs in the balance. The Arizona forensic audit report is to be released in the coming week and once the audit exposes that the election was stolen from Trump, we will be facing a constitutional crisis; a crisis that I believe has already been met and defeated by Trump and the military.

As the Biden regime crumbles under the weight of utter incompetency and the obvious fraud that put him in office, Trump is coming back stronger than ever.

The entire world is awaiting his return.
