Open Letter to President Joe Biden: Prosecute
Army Officer Who Says You’re Not President

Re: Prosecute Army Officer Who Says You’re Not President (But Are
a Pedophile)
Mikey Weinstein
Dear President Biden,

Mr. President, my name is Mikey Weinstein, and I head up a large civil rights advocacy organization called the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) which currently represents just over 74,000 active duty, reserve, and national guard military members as well as military academy, ROTC/OCS/OTS cadets and midshipmen, veterans, and DoD civilians. 

MRFF’s main mission is to protect the Constitutionally-mandated wall separating church and state in the U.S. armed forces.

First, I’d like to congratulate you on your landslide election to the White House, both in the popular vote and in the Electoral College.

Having professional, experienced, non-mentally ill, non-cowardly, reasoned, rational, and intelligent  leadership of our country returned to the fold is a true sine qua non bonanza to the health of our American Republic.

Mr. President, now that you are the Commander-in-Chief of our U.S. armed forces, I so regret having to inform you of one of the most repulsive acts of criminal contemptuousness towards a U.S. president by a uniformed member of the Department of Defense (DoD) we at MRFF have ever heretofore witnessed.

What I am compelled to report to you are the shockingly illicit actions of one 1LT Alex Stovall, who is apparently at this time an Army “Chaplain Candidate” who is concomitantly running for a seat in the U.S. Congress from the State of Arizona in the 2022 election.

It seems, Mr. President, that he doesn’t like you very much; not very much at all, sir!

Indeed, he has publicly refused to even recognize you as our President and his Commander-in-Chief and, even further, had made it quite clear to all he can communicate with that he sees you as a pernicious pedophile

Additionally, he has no problem viciously and feloniously violating the military’s criminal law structure, as detailed in the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), to both (1) further his Congressional candidacy using his Army Reserve Officer’s status as a force multiplier in his Congressional campaign ads, and, (2) savagely attacking you and other members of Congress, especially Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

1LT Stovall had made it clear that he will NOT stop saying these horrid things about you and others WHETHER OR NOT HE IS IN HIS U.S. ARMY UNIFORM!!

Mr. President, MRFF has already written a demand letter to your Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, and widely broken this story in the media. 

This past Friday, May 28, 2021, before the Memorial Day weekend, and pursuant to MRFF’s demands, the U.S. Army Reserve Command announced that it had opened up an official Army investigation into 1LT Stovall’s insidious and nefarious actions.

Mr. President, MRFF is respectfully asking YOU to ensure, as our American military’s Commander-in-Chief, that 1LT Alex Stovall is justly, expeditiously, aggressively, and visibly punished for his incredibly reprehensible actions, as detailed in this Open Letter to you.

Our armed forces have the UCMJ for a reason. Without it, the requisite good order, morale, discipline, and unit cohesion needed to optimally command our military forces disintegrates into lethal chaos.

Sir, we simply CANNOT have Army 1LTs bragging and boasting about calling our President a pedophile and illicitly leveraging their military status to win elections to Congress in BLATANT violation of DoD regulations, directives, instructions, and the UCMJ!

1LT Stovall’s hideous defiance of all associated military laws and regulations MUST BE STOPPED AND PUNISHED NOW!

Mr. President, if you won’t do it, who will?

Seriously, General Daniels, you guys HAVE to do something to stop this ASAP!… This is just a disgrace!
 
Subject: 1LT Stovall doubles down on his denigration of Biden in latest tweets


Just a day after 1LT Stovall’s press secretary told Army Times claimed that “Candidate Stovall recognize[s] Mr. Biden’s authority through the chain of command,” this self-proclaimed “Army chaplain” (according to Army Times he’s only a chaplain candidate) doubled down on his denigration of and contempt for President Biden on Twitter, again calling Biden “Resident” instead of “President,” and vowing to say such things “in or out of uniform.”
 
(Note that Stovall’s press secretary calls President Biden “Mr.” Biden instead of President Biden.)
 
Two of Stovall’s tweets from yesterday imply that President Biden is a pedophile (apparently part of the Qanon’s conspiracy theory that the Democratic Party is a cabal of satanic pedophiles).
 
First, 1LT Stovall retweeted a video of compiled clips of President Biden at various events intended to make it look like the president was inappropriately touching the young girls who were present, saying of the retweeted video, “I’ll just leave this here.”
 
An hour later, referring to President Biden’s somewhat awkwardly telling a little girl at a military event how grown up she looked, tweeted (emphasis added):
 
“Resident Biden believes a 6-year-old looks 19
 
In or out of uniform I will never accept these comments as normal or acceptable 
 
How many people feel good about his statements? .. Ill wait. 
 
I said what I said”
 
Earlier yesterday, tweeting “Yes it will” in response, he retweeted a tweet from Florida state representative Anthony Sabatini that said “The result of the #ArizonaAudit is going to be earth shattering … Get ready!,” doubling down on his opinion that the 2020 election was illegitimate and that President Biden was fraudulently elected.
 
Screenshots of the tweets are attached.

BACKGROUND ON MRFF'S EXPOSURE OF ARMY RESERVE CHAPLAIN AND CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE ALEX STOVALL
In a flagrant and egregious violation of Article 88 of the Uniform
Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) — "Contempt towards officials" —
Army Reserve Chaplain (1LT) Alex Stovall, a Republican candidate
for the U.S. Congress from Arizona, denies that President Biden is
the president, implies that President Biden is a pedophile, and illicitly appears in military uniform in campaign ads and interview. Stovall has habitually and criminally used contemptuous words towards President Biden, most recently saying on the GunFreedomRadio podcast:

"We saw the inauguration of this well, I don't think he's
President but whoever you would call this sleepy guy in office"

For a military officer, these words are a PUNISHABLE CRIME.

MRFF officially demanded that Chaplain (1LT) Stovall be
swiftly punished for his multiple violations of the UCMJ.

Due to MRFF's exposure and demand an Army Reserve investigation of 1LT Stovall is now underway.
