A Military Coup to Solve the Obama Problem

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.

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


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.


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.


my prayers would be answered.

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… Read more »


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… Read more »

Please join me in demanding the resignation of Obama. He is involved in fraud of the estate of me dead.


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… Read more »
