You have to admit that the Election of Donald Trump has brought unprecedented angst among the left in general and the Democrats in particular.
How can every Trump Cabinet nominee be the worst as Chuck Schumer seems to claim? Don’t you kinda haveta make a choice? All bad, OK but Worst? Oh well, whatever works for Chuck.
I don’t remember calls for a military coup to take down Obama in the immediate aftermath of his election although after some time there were plenty of calls for his impeachment after he ignored the Constitution.
Is there anything in the Constitution about a pre-emptive impeachment? I forgot; Who needs a constitution anyway?
But a military coup? Now there’s an idea that is more like desperate wishful thinking or a forlorn hope.
Having failed in the marketplace of ideas and at the ballot box, what’s left but force?
Obama Pentagon official says anti-Trump military coup now possible
Says Trump ‘as crazy as everyone feared’; claims military overthrow and ‘an insane order’ both ‘frightening’
From The Washington Times: By Carlo Muñoz – The Washington Times – Thursday, February 2, 2017
A former Defense Department official under the Obama administration has raised the specter of a military coup to remove President Donald Trump from power.
In an editorial penned for Foreign Policy, senior Pentagon policy official publicly suggested a military insurrection against the Trump administration may be the only option to oust one of the most divisive presidents in American history.
“Donald Trump’s first week as president has made it all too clear: Yes, he is as crazy as everyone feared,” Ms. Brooks wrote. “[One] possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”
For the first time in her career in public service, including three years as senior counselor to the Pentagon’s policy chief from 2009 to 2011, “I can imagine plausible scenarios in which senior military officials might simply tell the president: ‘No, sir. We’re not doing that.’”
Ms. Brooks‘ editorial comes as a recent poll by Public Policy Polling group found that 40 percent of registered voters support Mr. Trump’s impeachment.
In addition, 52 percent of voters polled said they would rather have President Obama in the Oval Office, opposed to the 43 percent who support the Trump presidency
