Do you not imagine that we are in the midst of a trial, an unfolding, attempted coup d'etat? 

If you’re so sure that it was far too early for a trial-coup to have been sprung over the weekend, from which strategic and tactical lessons might be learned, have you not considered that Mr Trump, Mr Bannon, and the American far Right...three full generations hanging exquisitely painful fire since Messrs Lindgergh, Stuart, and Wood founded and then were forced to abandon the first America First movement in goose-step thrall to the then European fascism...finally in a position to effect its will...have you not considered that these men are not epitomes of patience?

Before you decide those asking these questions are thoughtless hysterics, ask yourself, What if we're correct?

I think alarmism is appropriate at the moment. I might not if Trump were doing this but he's handed the reins to Bannon, and that guy I think would love a coup. And Trump has no patience with the Constitution to begin with. 

If the Republicans don't take this guy down quickly, I hope the military and intelligence communities do. I never thought I'd say this, but if the United States had a military coup right now, I'd be thoroughly relieved and I'd fly my American flag. Unless that was viewed as a protest, in which case I wouldn't. Those guys at least love their country, Constitution and all.

I am not in love w the idea of a military coup. I do get what you're saying, however.

I have to wonder what it might take for a Military Mutiny against the Beast Who Name Shall not be Spoken:

I'll tell you, it's tough now.

but it wasn't a coup.  this crazy fucker was elected.  legitimately.  it's like an alternate reality now.  up is down and sideways is the world.

The Massacre at the State Department is far more insidious than what just took place at the Department of Justice. 

There is a clear and present danger in the overt attempt to not just simply breach standard and accepted international protocol, but to break away from it altogether...

Trump and his henchmen are transcending the wait and seers and the benefit of the doubters...

They are leaving nothing to wait and see and have created absolutely no doubt re their intentions.

Bannon goal is to destabilize the government and set the stage for a "bloodless coup".

Pay attention people, this isn't going to get better any time soon.

FM,

the coup will be from Presidency to de facto dictatorship.

 

Comment by Ron Powell on January 31, 2017 at 4:00pm

@Kosh, The sad truth is that the idiots and basket full of deplorables who voted for Trump won't know, or be able to tell.  the differrnce.

Comment by koshersalaami on January 31, 2017 at 4:00pm

The problem, Ron, is that our President actually has henchmen. 

I wrote a post saying this was like living in a John Le Carre novel. It might actually be closer to living in a Batman movie. 

Riddle me this, America,

When is a President not a President?

When he's a dictator! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.   etc.
