A Military Coup to Solve the Obama Problem

Rate this post


On September 29, 2009, Newsmax.com published an article by John L. Perry on the likelihood of a military coup against the Obama administration. Fearing that the article could be misread as advocacy, Newsmax quickly took it down, but not before the Left went apoplectic, incensed that it was the work of the rabid far right, etc., etc.
It turns out that John L. Perry is a Democrat — and a distinguished one at that. This was the bio Newsmax had on Perry, which Newsmax took down along with the original article. The bio, however, is reproduced on the blog, Libertarian Leanings:  

Perry…has had a distinguished career in public policy. He served President Lyndon B. Johnson as deputy under secretary of commerce and was a White House speech writer and race-relations trouble-shooter for President Johnson. In the Jimmy Carter administration, he was executive assistant to the under secretary of Housing and Urban Development and was interim director of public information for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. […] Perry was also assistant to the president of the National Association of Broadcasters, a member of the top-management team and director of public relations for the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tenn., and an academic fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Now, Perry has written another article on the possibility of a military coup, which he prefers to call an “intervention.” I wonder what and whom he knows, and if the military brass are reading this. Is Perry floating a trial balloon? Or, more sinisterly, is Perry an agent provocateur?

Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention

By John L. Perry – Rense.com – May 23, 2010
There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military wll 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 won’t. 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 Afghanistant, 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.

  1. I guess it didn’t matter that I mentioned it.
    Now it’s been given wings.

     
    • May,
      You’re not alone. For some time, some of us have raised this as a possibility. I just wish we have intelligence on what the military brass are thinking, so that we can raise it from the realm of possibility to probability. But then, if “they” are contemplating it, they’d be stupid to let anyone know.

       
      • Since all three branches of government have violated some portion of the constitution it would seem that the people have to have a means of recovery. The ballot box doesn’t seem to work as both parties love their elite ruling class status. If the constitution is no longer binding for the errant goose then maybe the gander should exercise a peaceful coup to restore the freedoms we once enjoyed.

         
  2. Yes, I remember you saying this!
    There’s a part of me who worries that John L. Perry is an agent provacateur. As Internet chatter about a military coup builds, O may just use that as the pretext to clamp down.
    Seems any way you look at this, we lose….

     
  3. I, for one, don’t think this will ever happen. And frankly, I hope it doesn’t. This would set an horrific precedent if it did, and would drastically lower our standing in the world and increase our susceptibility to foreign intervention in the future.
    Barry’s a lot of things bad, but a coup is not the way to end his reign.

     
    • So are we just supposed to stand by and watch this nation’s economy crash and burn and hope we can rebuild it from the ashes, or stand by and wait while a jihadist smuggles a nuke into one of our cities and watch as a mushroom cloud rises from the ruins. I believe a military coup should only be a last resort and if the election in November proceeds unimpeded that will be great and democracy will triumph, but if not I also believe it will be time for action and a military coup will be our last best hope for this country.

       
      • I fear that liberals are like cockroaches and could survive just about anything except a heavy boot stomping on their ass, but there is nothing wrong with a little one-on-one if you know what I mean. It might just take a little longer. LOL

         
  4. It’s not our standing in the world that I worry about, it’s how much trashing of the Constitution can we withstand before we’re no longer the US of A.
    I don’t relish a coup either. Who does? But officers of the U.S. military are sworn to protect the Constitution, not a president. What is more important: the very integrity of the United States of America, which is intimately dependent on the integrity of the Constitution? or not “setting a precedent”?

     
    • Actually Eo, the CiC is in the chain of command for every officer in every uniformed service- it is their to duty to protect the president- even if they don’t want to.
      But more importantly, I want to clarify my position regarding “our standing in the world”: I could care less what most countries think of us. What I’m concerned about is the belief among other countries, particularly those non-friendly to the US, to be able to influence US politics through the threat of bringing about a coup.
      Once a military coup has succeeded, every leader going forward would be beholden to the military to remain in power. Every future president could be influenced by military leaders, or by foreign governments whose policies align more with the military than with the current leader.
      I served -as many of you know- and part of the reason I chose to leave the USMC was incoming President Clinton and his distaste for all-things military. But I wouldn’t advocate a coup to overthrow a duly-elected pacifist, and I wouldn’t advocate one to overthrow a duly-elected socialist. We survived Carter, we’ll survive Obama.
      There’s no good news regarding the economy on the horizon, and no matter how hard the Feds try to spin “recovery”, they’ll never be able to prove it to the average American still looking for a job come November. Obama’s reign is nearing it’s end, my friends; and it will begin with a significant reduction of power in November. The Dems know this which is why they’re trying to cram through the Banking Bill and a host of other spending measures before they start spending union dues on the campaign trail.
      Talk of a military coup will only instigate the democrat’s base in bring about a higher dem turnout- exactly the thing we don’t want.

       
      • Bob:
        Recognizing that you had served in the Marine, I still beg to differ. You said that US military officers have “a duty” to obey the Commander-in-Chief because he is part of, indeed at the top, of the chain of command. But there is a difference between “duty” and “oath.”
        As you yourself know, a notable and significant difference between the officer and enlisted oaths is that the oath taken by officers does NOT include any provision to obey orders; while enlisted personnel are bound by the Uniform Code of Military Justice to obey lawful orders, officers in the service of the United States are bound by their oath to disobey any order that violates the Constitution of the United States. The US miliary OFFICERS’ oath is:
        “I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” [Source: wikipedia]
        Note that in Mr. John Perry (Democrat)’s essay, “Obama risks a domestic military intervention,” his supposition is that Obama’s acts as president are destructive of the very foundation and integrity of the United States because they violate the Constitution. Therefore, Perry reasons, since Congress and the Supreme Court are unwilling/unable to stop him, our last resort — short of a populist uprising — is the military might effect an “intervention.” All to save the Constitution.
        Your comment does not address at least three questions:
        1. What if the “duly elected” president violates the Constitution? Between a sitting president vs. the Constitution itself, to which do officers owe their allegiance first? From the officers’ oath, the priority is clear, at least to me.
        2. You emphasized that officers have a duty to obey a “duly elected” president, but you neglected to address the question of whether the “duly elected” president even is qualified to be president, as specified by the Constitution. I am, of course, alluding to the continuing question of Obama’s birth eligibilty. Even assuming we have definitive proof that he was born on US soil, in Honolulu (which we the People still do not have), there is still the matter of him being a “natural born citizen,” i.e., born to parents who are BOTH U.S. citizens at the time of his birth — which by Obama’s own acknowledgment, he isn’t, due to his Kenyan (presumed) biological father. All of which, of course, is in violation of the Constitution.
        3. You placed your confidence in elections to fix the problem. What if elections themselves are either abolished (via a declaration of martial law) or suborned (via widespread electoral fraud and/or the mass influx of illegal aliens made citizens by way of amnesty who vote Democrat), so that we can no longer have any confidence that the results truly reflect the Will of the People? In other words, it’s a question of the Constitution once again.
        In the last analysis, let me again emphasize that NO ONE relishes the thought of a military coup. But, for officers of the U.S. armed services (not the enlisted personnel), their oath makes it clear that, if it comes to a choice, their allegiance is to “support and defend the CONSTITUTION of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC.”
        The Constitution trumps any individual person, even a so-called “duly elected” president. That is as it should be because the United States of America is defined by and depends on for its very authenticity ON THE CONSTITUTION, not on man.

         
        • Couple things here:
          First- there is more to the duty of every uniformed service member than simply the oath of Enlistment/Commission. The UCMJ is actually the governing factor and amounts to the military law that all must follow (along with civilian law under the Constitution.)
          Secondly- any attempt by a commissioned officer to overthrow the government of the United States would surely fall under several Articles of the UCMJ- most notably Article 90 and Article 94. Now- just because I served doesn’t make me a JAG Officer -so I could be wrong here- but I’m pretty sure the UCMJ has provisions to deal with just such an attempt.
          Thirdly, the argument that Obama is neither duly elected nor authorized under the Constitution to administer a lawful order: that is not for the military to presume or determine. We have courts in this country to address these issues, and like it or not, they have. Therefore, to my understanding,it is the initial assumption, under the UCMJ, that any order given by a superior officer in the roll of executing his office, is lawful. The argument of Constitutionality regarding a birth certificate should not be scrutinized by an officer in the performance of his duties. You also need to remember that a significant portion of the senior military leadership is left-leaning. They’ve been playing politics for the majority of their careers by that point, and convincing enough to band together in a coordinated military coup would be a near impossibility.
          If this country falls under a dictatorship and elections are withdrawn, undone, or otherwise eliminated, then the issue of a military coup would only lead to another form of dictatorship, and wouldn’t allow a return to a democratic republic.
          I wouldn’t support a military coup under any circumstance. I understand why some may feel otherwise, but in my opinion, it could never bring about a viable solution for our country.

           
  5. Frankly, since this adminsitration does not listen to the people and wants to bring socialism and communism to a practicing ideal in our country, I would welcome this kind of action.

     
  6. my prayers would be answered.

  8. Who Would You Trust More Running America The Next Two Years—Obama Or A Quasi Civilian/U.S. Military Government?
    The Neomarxist behind the Obama/FTC intend to drown out the voice of America with Obama/Marxist propaganda, enforcing new regulations that will cripple bloggers and other alternative media from disseminating information, free speech that grass-roots among other organizations depend on to make informed decisions. Obama’s support of the DISCLOSE Act confirmed what many Americans already believed; that Obama and certain Democrats in Congress intend to strangle the flow of information. If Obama and his leftists associations get their way, our Children will be brainwashed by Obama’s one-sided propaganda at school, through Obama controlled Radio, TV and Obama media policies that restrict the free flow of information. Historically when communists attempt or take over a country, one of their first steps was to control the media and all forms of public communications to control Civilian populations. When Russia took over Hungary, it immediately took control of the Radio stations to thwart Citizen resistance and to psychologically control the People. Considering the Obama administration’s obsession with controlling all media, one might ask, are some of the same persons inside and outside U.S. Government working with the Obama administration to push the Disclose Act and other censorship regulations, involved in causes that promulgate overthrow of the United States? While some in the Obama Government say they support dismantling capitalism, brick by brick, does their endgame call for destruction of the United States? If it does, what should Americans do to stop it? Does the Obama administration’s proposed censorship of free speech e.g., the Disclose Act threaten National Security? In other countries where members of political parties and ideological extremists attempted or succeeded in this kind of forced censorship, forbidding Citizens to receive information, they have been arrested for treason among other crimes. The Obama administration appears intended to curtail Americans’ right to know, restrict American’s right to communicate via the Internet and the Obama administration admits they want to pay writers in newspapers and other media to covertly propagandize their point of view. Is this not treason? Top CZAR Cass Sunstein prepared a 2008 paper that proposed spying on Americans, infiltrating groups and organizations to obstruct Free Speech, disrupt the exchange of ideas and disseminate false information to neutralize Americans that might question government.
    See: http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=121884
    The majority of Americans oppose military governments. But increasingly during the last six months, more Americans quietly state they would trust the U.S. Military running U.S. Government temporarily over extremists in Obam’s government; that they would support a quasi Civilian/military form of government temporarily provided their civil and constitutional rights were protected and importantly, all leftists extremists in U.S. Government were deposed. This recent change of attitude by Americans might be explained by the fact they can relate to their U.S. Military and find nothing in common with Obama and his extreme leftist associations and supporters. Increasingly Americans appear to fear the Obama government more than the idea of having the U.S. Military temporarily run U.S. Government. Additionally Obama’s refusal to secure America’s Mexican border might have contributed to Americans identifying with a quasi/U.S. military government over an Obama government that won’t protect Border States from foreign invaders. The number of Marxists in the U.S. is small, but having them control any part of our government is repugnant to most Americans that believe it not in the best interest of our economy, national defense and National Security. Considering the direction America is going economically, more Americans are afraid that if things collapse, Obama might use the U.S. Military against U.S. Citizens; that should things collapse a quasi Civilian/U.S. Military government not the Obama administration should run America. This is mentioned only to note there is a strong wind blowing across America, that is howling enough Obama.

  10. A military seizure of the capitol would indeed seem like a god send. However it will not be as simple as that. It is completely unknown how far into the military chain Bilderberg’s influence has pushed. If indeed troops stormed en mass into this nation it would have to be an assault on the capitol in conjunction with hunting down the criminal bodies that have bought the presidency. Bilderberg would undoubtebly wage complete economic war against the US. I know this sounds insane but make no mistake people. Serious, serious, serious things are happening with an agenda that is not for the people. We need to understand that the world of big banking, business and politics are so interrelated that they are completely the same. These are powerful people that don’t run in our circles. They see us as negatives in a balance sheet and we are completely disposable. It goes beyond this. Way beyond. Bilderberg wants global depopulation. Investigate the american stone henge in Georgia and what it reads. Under 500 million people is the goal. They (Bilderberg) want us dead. We are sucking up their resources and are too many to control efficiently. Beware of this public health care. This is how they will do it. Forced immunizations containing squalene are going to devastate us. Sound insane yet? It’s not. Borders mean nothing to these people, in fact they as a group are disgusted with the civil liberties that we have because they are not profitable. We will be spied on by our very neighbors for cash, we will be forced to pay carbon tax to breathe the air and finally we will be killed off with Bilderberg families ruling the New World Order. America is a huge prize for these parasites and it all began with the Euro. Next is the North American Union and Finally a global economy where we are enslaved by the artificial debts and dividends of a corrupt banking empire. They are playing a game and don’t think like us. It is all about them and we are mindless cattle until we wake up. Get ready for free speach to end, not to mention the internet. Obama is looking into making illeagal questioning government decisions or differing viewpoints. Get ready for mass seizures of firearms door to door. It is all real. Don’t believe it? Find out who Alex Jones is and read his message. Turn off the TV and start thinking and stop ignoring what is going on. We just witnessed the biggest financial crime ever committed on the American people (ever in human history) with the banker bailouts. The bilderbergs caused this crisis to crush the dollar in hopes people will welcome a North American Union and a stable MexAmeriCanadian currency. This is serious enough for a coup to have already happened and guess what? It didn’t. It is up to us to save our country and our very lives against a threat ever worse than Europe saw in the 1930’s.

     
  11. http://www.webspawner.com/users/hrsvsobama/index.html
    Please join me in demanding the resignation of Obama. He is involved in fraud of the estate of me dead.

     
  12. I suddenly had a thought and put it google ‘only a military coup can save the united states from obama’ and this site pops up! Heart warming that others have come to the same conclusion.
    After reading the thoughts of others posted on the topic I am saddened again.
    Even a coup can’t stop the economic collapse now. Even a coup can’t suddenly eradicate all the socialists they’ve taken years to plant throughout the entire system.
    The coup may prevent the Civil War they are forcing on us though and that in itself is enough to risk it. Our current administration reminds me of the Caesers of old who delighted in death meted out before them; everything they are doing will result in cities on fire and the gnashing of teeth between many peoples of the United States.
    If a silent vote presented a button I’d push the one titled coup.

     
  13. suzanne atwell

    I say it is past time for this to happen.. This man is destroying this country! Please save us, if he is reelected our freedom is lost. He is not qualified to be president plus he is above our laws and constitution.
