Growing Talk of a Coup Reflects Progressive Projection, Lust for Power at All Costs

By David Codrea

Just like Rosa Brooks (see article, below), the guy who penned this fantasy is a member of the Soros (and other globalist/One Percenters)-funded New America Foundation.

USA – -( “Is the US in the middle of a coup?” Charles Firth of Australia’s asks. “A fascinating and scary article has been doing the rounds in recent days, which suggests that Donald Trump’s ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries was an attempt to see how far he can push his power, as the first step to mounting an all-out coup.”

Leave it to “progressives” to view the lawfully-elected president’s temporary stay on immigration from “countries of concern” called out by the Obama administration, and legal and administrative actions taken to carry out those orders – as a “coup.” Concern over letting in potential hostiles who have not been properly vetted was one of the main reasons Trump was elected, and carrying through on his pledges is something his supporters expect and demand.

Does anyone doubt what “the other side” wants (demands)?

No Ban No Wall! March for Muslims and Allies! … IMMIGRANTS ARE AMERICA AND NO HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL, BECAUSE HUMANITY KNOWS NO BORDERS. We cannot and will not condone Trump’s fascist, hateful, and dividing regime.

Talk about taking over the country!

It’s projection anyway, and not even very sincere projection at that, but more of another way to bolster the lie that Trump’s election was not “legitimate.” That, of course, comes from the same people who just about hemorrhaged when Trump said he’d want to verify election results before blanket accepting them.

Hillary called that “appalling.”

Still, as “creative” as it is to accuse a duly-elected president of staging a coup, where “progressives” truly show the stuff they’re made of is in revealing their desire that the military stage one on their behalf.

We saw just such speculation at Vice Media, where they brought in an “expert” (from Chicago, naturally) who assured everyone that if the military did take over, armed citizens resisting would be “toast.”

Then, a few days back, we saw a similar call, this time from a political “insider”:

In a blog post for Foreign Policy magazine, Rosa Brooks, a former Obama administration official, outlined four ways to “get rid” of President Trump, including declaring him mentally unfit for command or carrying out a military coup. Brooks is a Schwartz senior fellow at the New America Foundation, which is funded by billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundations. She served from 2009-2011 as Counselor to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy and served as a senior adviser at Obama’s State Department.

Once the talking points are out, the loons are free to take over. Case in point, “comedienne” Sarah Silverman on Twitter:

Rally ’round the nag, boys!

“Once the military is with us…”?

And when will that be?

It’s obvious from her troubled grasp of reality that Silverman still hasn’t grokked that the source of her rage and dissatisfaction with the way things are might just be internal. And that just may shape her views on why she doesn’t trust others to have enough self-control to “bare arms.”

Tellingly, heat from Twitter was enough to inspire Silverman to “walk back” her coup tweet, giving us a glimpse into her level of personal commitment to the cause. It’s other people she wants to take actual risks and bear real costs.

What’s apparent from all this talk of coups is:

  • Those doing it have unrealistic expectations about support they’d get from the military, a group pretty much loathed by “progressives.”
  • Gun owners would not stand idly by. Even if, say, only Three Percent of them had the capability, training and will to effectively resist, that number just might surprise those who scoff at “ammosexuals” from a position of ignorance.
  • Always expect the Orwellian opposite from “progressives.” For all their talk about civil liberties, it really shows what potential totalitarian monsters these people are. Their lust for power is so great they openly fantasize about imposing martial law, allowing them to impose their will on others, especially on the “red states.”  Yes, of course they’d start a civil war, providing all they had to do was tweet about it.

Such cultists, if given enough power, historically and invariably make mass graves inevitable.  Which explains why the evil minds prodding the useful Hollywood (and other) idiots are so desperate to enact citizen disarmament.

If you don‘t believe as they do, they hate you and want to rule you or eliminate you. Does anyone not get that yet?

Hilarious that the same side who thinks barrel shrouds are “barrel things that go up” – while calling for their banning – believe they have the rank and file military on their side in a potential coup.


When a person starts a new job they are given 30 days to 3 months to prove themselves worthy.
Trump hasn’t had a month and idiots are threatening assassination. Isn’t that an arresting offence
to threaten a president ?


HMMMNNN….So armed citizens would be toast, hey? Perhaps the “expert” from Chicago ought to go to Ireland or England and talk to the hundreds of families of British soldiers killed by the IRA, or the thousands of families of British sympathizers in Ireland killed by them. Seems to me that illegally armed citizens in Ireland managed to keep up an ongoing battle there for hundreds of years, literally. And Ireland is not, by any means, the only country where this has occurred (or is occurring now). In any case, the sensible ones among the “armed citizens” he speaks of, and… Read more »

Boohoo its not Hillary for an even worse outcome for the USA. Grow up! We had to endure 8 years of global embarassment, and now this! The left making a rediculous spectacle of America again. How entertained the rest of the world must be! President Trump is, and will do great things for America. The left certainly does not. Get over it and grow the f—- up!

Dave Brown

From my view at age 64 anything is possible. Now as a life long Independent I voted for Trump mainly to see if he can and or would actually shake things up. Again, mainly as what we have ain’t working real good. Both Parties Suck mainly because it is now In Style to avoid any agreement on what is best for All of Us. Since day 2 of Trump’s campaign I hoped he would Stop acting like a Middle School Bully, but he still is. It may turn out OK, but only time will tell. Now I can be so… Read more »


Would somebody still support something even though it was declared unconstitutional by a Supreme Court majority? This question applies to several different issues.


Look at all the violence and call for violence and they wanted our guns taken away because we are too violent. Look who is calling the kettle black.
Grow up I lived thru Obama you will live thru President Trump.


Funny, how after eight years of the previous mess that is obama, the left now thinks the military is loyal to their cause and belongs to them. You can’t make this stuff up. Too damn funny.


The military could hardly wait for Obama to leave!! They certainly wouldn’t take up arms for him and go against a lawfully elected President that is doing what he campaigned to do. Liberals have a short-circuit in their brain.

Bill Mullins

David, if the libs WERE to try a coup or putsch, would Kosovo ROE apply? I am neither young nor healthy enough for front line service but I could take out community leaders and local media talking heads supporting the mess.


If SHTF I think that those of us who are “older” would be the Wolverines, except there’d be a whole LOT of us in addition to the younger ones taking the fight t o the enemy’s door. The first rule of revolution is don’t start a revolution if you’re the party who hates guns and your chosen enemy is people who love guns.

Don’t get me wrong though, a revolution would be tragic on an unbelievable scale.

Get on with iit and stop the BS

The Spectator is best known for its cartoons… and wine (whine) club. The Brit and Oz press thrive on nonsense. Most of the pundits love their own voices and proving to themselves that they are morally right and genius thinkers.

There isn’t going to be a coup from either direction. Neither are sufficiently competent to pull it off.

It would be nice if the idiot posturings would cease, but that’s unlikely. Reminiscent of two middle age ladies, into their sherry, going at it with their handbags

New concept. We are in charge. Stop whining. Start governing.

Build a wall around Hollywood. Relocate all the refugees they want to protect to their new safe haven world and see how long that lasts. See how fast the we are better and smarter than you lasts. With any luck these nutbags would follow up on their promise to leave the country. I know a lot of rednecks that would help them move!!

Stephen C. Gregory

Is that wall going to be waterproof?

Andy Buckmichael

People like this definitely deserve a bullet.



Here’s a link to Breitbart claiming that the GOPe “patriots” who are all attacking the 45th POTUS took money and INFLUENCE from George Soros himself:

I suggest you/we/us do the best to prepare for out-and-out armed conflict in this former United States. We are in deep trouble here.

Moose Man NH

If only half of the population was armed, ( approx. 150 million}, where do you think anyone would be that tried to stage a coup against an armed populace. That doesn’t even include the military. The left doesn’t have the guts to do anything but riot and throw things. Besides, they loathe guns.

Jerry The Geek

Oh, please don’t bait the chimpanzees. It will only encourage them to more outrageous stunts; isn’t it enough that they are already eating their own feces?

Dave Eckart

Interesting post considering that all of the violence before and after the election was done and is still being done by the Leftists/”Progressives”.


Please try and coup so we can shoot them in the streets.


UPVOTED! It will look like Turkey… except we have the military and the armed citizens….wait…what do the liberal anti-gun nuts think they will stage a coup with?

Phillip Evans

The leftist elites despise the military. It was treated like garbage under Obama at worst, and as a social experiment at best. How ironic that the left wants to now use the military to overthrow the will of the American People and bring back the rotten sewer stench of the former administration. Just two words for the left: Not…Happening. LOL! President Trump is going to continue to drain the swamp, and as things get better, the left is going to have a satisfying (for us) meltdown, the likes they’ve never experienced before. Some of them will resort to violence in… Read more »
