Is there a Coup in the Works?

Not long ago Stephen Coonts put out a new book. LIBERTY’S LAST STAND.

Islamic terrorists lit the fuse…but a treacherous president planted the bomb.

With the nation in shock over a series of Islamist outrages (shooting up a Catholic grade school and a baseball game are just two of them) by “refugees”, the president of the United States – Barry Soetoro – imposes martial law, cancels the imminent presidential election, and suspends the Constitution. In response, Texas secedes—and what follows is the bloodiest, most harrowing internal insurrection since the Civil War.

The purges that follow arrest thousands of people, including congresscritters, judges of the Supreme Court, and agency heads. The New Black Panthers are incorporated into the Presidential forces.

Note: In reading the Obamacare language 1312 lays out the “SEC. 5210″, which is “Establishing a Ready Reserve Corps”:

(1) IN GENERAL.–here shall be in the Service a commissioned Regular Corps and a Ready Reserve Corps for service in time of national emergency.

(4) ACTIVE DUTY.–Commissioned officers of the Ready Reserve Corps shall at all times be subject to call to active duty by the Surgeon General, including active duty for the purpose of training.

(5) WARRANT OFFICERS.–Warrant officers may be appointed to the Service for the purpose of providing support to the health and delivery systems maintained by the Service and any warrant officer appointed to the Service shall be considered for purposes of this Act and title 37, United States Code, to be a commissioned officer within the Commissioned Corps of the Service.

This section creates a military style force much as the SA/SS were the Party military for the NSDAP.

In the center of the action are former CIA director Jake Grafton *arrested and put in a Camp and former CIA operative Tommy Carmellini (on the run with his sometime girlfriend) with a mission unlike any they’ve had before: save the country from its own president.

With the country in flames, riots in the cities, and America’s armed forces pitted against each other, the American people are confronted with the ultimate political question: Who are we, what do we stand for, and what are we prepared to do about it?

There has been a bunch of talk about FEMA “Concentration Camps”. These show up in the book. There have been dozens of conspiracy theories bandies about some of the more volatile sites.

Now, one of the somewhat more mainstream sites is jumping onto the bandwagon.  As the article warns:

Normally military coups are instigated by the right, but a senior fellow with the left-wing Foreign Policy Institute is arguing that an overthrow of the U.S. government might be necessary if Republican nominee Donald Trump is elected president.

What’s more, the op-ed by James Kirchick ran Tuesday in a major U.S. newspaper, the Los Angeles Times.

Trump is not only patently unfit to be president, but a danger to America and the world,” Mr. Kirchick wrote in the op-ed. “If  Trump wins, a coup isn’t impossible here in the U.S.”

“Voters must stop him before the military has to,” he concluded.

So, where does fiction end and fact begin?  Do we worry?  Do we panic?  Do we huddle down and hope and pray for the best?    (And as a German, I object to the use of German Nazi symbols in the the hammer and sickle of the old Soviet Union should be placed behind Obama/Hillery.  Trump as a populist should be represented by the symbol of the (very short lived) Populist Party:  The Liberty Bell.

Is the Left Planning a Military Coup if Trump Wins?

    So, you lefties want to have a coup if (when) Trump wins?
    In that case, you have to ask yourselves one question.
    Do you feel lucky?
    Well, do ya punks?
    All of those generals and admirals who along with the men who looked up to them, will be wanting some payback. All of us Vietnam vets you spit on upon our return have been waiting patiently for our turn at your throats. Those secret service men who experienced your disdain for anyone in uniform. The policemen who have watched their fallen comrades die for your lies. All the middle class working men and women who lost their jobs because you helped the companies they worked for leave for cheaper pastures, will be looking for redress.
    So, go ahead, make our day.
    Now get off our lawn.

    I, personally, don’t think the military would stand for a coup.
    The Air Force? Maybe. 70-30 for Obama.
    The Army? Probably split about 60-40 for Obama (they’ve been forced to take a lot of people they used to send home.
    The Navy? Maybe 80-20 against him. With SEALS/SpecBoats, etc 100 against him.
    The Marines? Probably 95-5 against Obama.

      vonMesser, you are right in your numbers about our military. The Marines, our best, would disobey Obama. I read the numbers sometime ago and they match what I read.

      If this were to happen, and lots of people are preparing for it as I read on Twitter where there are lots of vets and military, lots of Marine vets, they are ready to go to war.

      If Obama were to pull this it would be the last straw for many people who are already so angry. All hell would break loose on Obama’s brown shirts.

    Thank you, I.R., I can’t possibly say anything to add to your comment.

    It goes in several directions. The People could be holding pocket aces without realizing it. While the military is busy with themselves, the ObamaCare Warrant Officers, would be relying on others to help them, which would only target themselves. A suspension of the constitution will work like double edged sword, as weapons can be acquired from unknown sources [I always look, but never find any]. Thirteenth and fourteenth amendment will be equally as dead as first, second, fourth, fifth, amendments. The stooges or “free stuff” army that would be required by Obama, can then be dealt with. But consider this, if anything were to happen, it would anger every American, even the Dumbest Generation millennials.

  6. Hardnox says:

    What I find so ridiculous in all of this is that the left is now looking at the military as their saviors if trump wins in November. The left has pissed all over the military and the law enforcement community for decades.

    I have a bridge to sell if these assholes think that will actually happen.

    I’m totally with I.R., “now get off my lawn” and STFU.

    Was hoping you would comment more on this book, Von Messer. I just finished reading it myself. I was amazed it was allowed to be published due to the president’s name. I found it to be unsettling!

    • vonmesser says:

      I hoped that my comments on the book were just enough to get people to go out and buy it (support the author) and read it for themselves.
