    Thumbs down Right-winger floats idea of military coup to solve "Obama problem"

    Obama Risks a Domestic Military ‘Intervention’

    Tuesday, September 29, 2009 10:35 AM

    By: John L. Perry

    There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.

    America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:
    • Officers swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”
    • Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.
    • They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.
    • They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.
    • They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.
    • They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.
    • They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.
    • They can see the nation’s safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before.
    So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?

    Wait until this president bungles into losing the war in Afghanistan, and Pakistan’s arsenal of nuclear bombs falls into the hands of militant Islam?

    Wait until Israel is forced to launch air strikes on Iran’s nuclear-bomb plants, and the Middle East explodes, destabilizing or subjugating the Free World?

    What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, “I’m not interested in victory”) that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?

    Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?

    Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership is lost in a fool’s fog.

    Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

    Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

    Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

    Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”

    In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.

    This is beyond the pale. If the Democrats don't step up and shut this kind of talk down right now, I fear we are going to see violence in this country. And yes, it will be the Republicans' fault. But it will also be the fault of the Democratic party for watching the crazy talk grow, and not doing a thing to stand up to it. At some point, silence abets.

    This imbecile is trying to stir anarchy. He's an enemy of the state, playing
    with fire right next to a powder keg.
    It should be possible to do something against types like these, without
    having them screech about censorship, first amendment rights etc.

    As long as Obama is president, the GOP/right-wingers are going to continue this line of rhetoric. The GOP/right-wingers have nothing else to offer but scare tactics, which is why they keep going back to the well over and over again.

    Obama has been in office for 9 months and they're blaming all the crap the GWB got us into on him. We really should have had a coup about 8 years ago. Darn us peaceful liberals.

    I want him to at least try, so I can watch him get a bullet 'tween the eyes.

    Newsmax Columnist: Military Coup May Be Needed 'To Resolve The Obama Problem'

    Rachel Slajda | September 30, 2009, 9:39AM

    In a column published yesterday, Newsmax's John L. Perry wrote that there is a "gaining" possibility that the military will stage a coup to "resolve the 'Obama problem.'"

    Newsmax
    has apparently removed the column from its site. Links are now redirected to the homepage, and Perry's author page has no mention of his latest work. You can read the full text here.

    The coup -- which would be "civilized" and "bloodless," according to Perry -- would consist of a "patriotic general" sitting down with the President and working out a new system in which "skilled, military-trained, nation-builders" would "do the serious business of governing and defending the nation" while Obama would still be allowed to make speeches.

    Obama, he said, is inviting such a "family intervention."
    Military intervention is what Obama's exponentially accelerating agenda for "fundamental change" toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama's radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.


    "Unthinkable?" Perry asked. "Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don't shrug and say, 'We can always worry about that later.'"

    Perry also wrote that "Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it."

    A call to Newsmax for comment was not immediately returned.

    Late update
    : A spokeswoman for Newsmax sent a statement to TPM admitting that the magazine removed the column after several reader complaints. She also identified Perry as an "unpaid blogger."
    Newsmax strongly believes in the principles of Constitutional government and would never advocate or insinuate any suggestion of an activity that would undermine our democracy or democratic institutions.
    Late late update: Looking into his long history with Newsmax, it seems that Perry is more than an "unpaid blogger."

    Newsmax Distances Itself From Columnist, Says We Believe In Constitutional Gov't

    Rachel Slajda | September 30, 2009, 11:39AM

    In a statement sent to TPM, Newsmax spokeswoman Paula Pradines said that John L. Perry -- the columnist who claimed a military coup to "resolve the Obama problem" was increasingly possible -- is just an "unpaid blogger" for the magazine.

    "He has no official relationship with Newsmax other than as an unpaid blogger," she said.

    On his Newsmax bio page, Perry is described as someone who "contributes a regular column to Newsmax.com." On the site's "Blogs" page, he's listed alongside other contributors including Ben Stein, Grover Norquist and Christopher Ruddy, the owner and editor-in-chief on Newsmax.

    He has also written a column nearly every week since late 1999.

    Pradines said Newsmax pulled the column after several reader complaints "to insure that this article was not misinterpreted."

    "Newsmax strongly believes in the principles of Constitutional government," she added, "and would never advocate or insinuate any suggestion of an activity that would undermine our democracy or democratic institutions."

    Besides, Perry "clearly stated that he was not advocating such a scenario but simply describing one," she wrote.

    If a liberal said that about Bush when he was President, they would be in Gitmo.
