Military coup could oust Obama

    Former White House speechwriter John L. Perry has courted controversy by suggesting that the U.S. Military, upholding their oath to defend the Constitution against domestic enemies, could stage a bloodless coup to oust President Obama.

    In an article originally posted on the Newsmax website, Perry wrote, “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.”

    Despite the fact that Perry was not explicitly advocating such a coup, Newsmax later removed the article to ensure it “was not misinterpreted”.

    The article outlines how military officers, outraged at Obama’s “trampling” on the Constitution, nationalization of American institutions, rising deficits, unemployment and taxes, could peaceably seize power from the “radical-left commissars” of the Obama administration.

    “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,” writes Perry.

    It is important to stress that Perry is not a Neo-Con, he worked under the Democratic administrations of Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter.

    Perry warns that America could be unrecognizable by 2012, prompting a coup to “restore and defend the Constitution,” a prospect that is “weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership,” he writes

    Perry says that such a move could be accelerated if Israel were to bomb Iran, causing the Middle East to explode and a massive destabilization of the free world.

    Of course, the unlikely staging of a military coup could be just another ruse to implement martial law in the aftermath of what would undoubtedly ensue – mass civil unrest and a potential breakdown of society.

    More and more credible analysts are predicting that the United States could collapse in a Soviet-style breakdown within the next few years. In such a scenario, the vacuum of power created would leave the door open for the imposition of an even greater tyranny than we are witnessing today with Obama’s big government Socialist agenda.

    It is far more likely that a military coup, even if it began as a genuine effort to “restore the Constitution,” or “solve the Obama problem,” would be hijacked and transformed into an effort to subjugate the entire country under a militarized police state to an even greater extent than it is now.

    The more probable scenario is the one that was outlined by Tommy Franks in a 2003 interview with the men’s lifestyle magazine Cigar Aficionado, where a military form of government would be implemented in the aftermath of a huge terror attack that kills millions.

    Franks predicted that another mass casualty terror attack would occur that would cause the “population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass
  2. If their was a coup, then i dont think it would be bloodless. I mean it would be bloodless to take over, but after they get Obama out of office you can bet the liberals that support Obama will fly off the handle and become terrorists by taking pot shots here and there at the military. Our country would look like Iraq. Once the people get all riled up like that, its hard to get them to stop.
  3. The blacks would riot.

    Blacks never let a good riot opportunity go to waste.

    I don't know about the liberals, most don't own firearms anyway.

    Now the blacks on the other hand would be rioting in the streets. And just as soon as they get through looting everything in sight. THEN, they would be taking pot shots.
  5. We would make Iraq look like petting zoo.
  6. Not taking sides, but that is exactly what would happen.

    Some of these cities would be lit up.

    However, a lot of black folk would probably go inside, lock their doors and be sitting there with a rifle like the rest of us.
  7. I agree that we are heading for difficult times. But what annoys me is that Bush was the same as Obama is! And where were all the Constitution Loving right wing nuts then?

    That's why I am a pessimist. Each half of the population thinks it's the other half's fault.

    And all the while, BOTH parties are in bed with big business and destroy the country.

  8. “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,” writes Perry.

    this is coming from a democrat. Take Heed, America! Obama knows less abt economics than mao tse tung
  9. I really don't see this as a possibility, except in the Franks terrorist attack scenario maybe. Our military leaders are way too pussified and drunk on political correctness. I think the highly politicized officer promotion process weeds out the real leaders, and we end up with morons like McChrystal.

    I dunno, I picture myself on the roof in a comfortable chair with some sand bags, my Springfield Armory M1A, a spotting scope, some bottled water and...oh yeah an extra large box of Cheez-Its.

    Let the games begin!
