After the U.S. Presidential Coup, What Then?

Washington Get Trump
After the U.S. Presidential Coup, What Then?
Pat Buchanan
Patrick J .Buchanan

USA –  -(Ammoland.com)-  That the Trump presidency is bedeviled is undeniable.

As President Donald Trump flew off for August at his Jersey club, there came word that Special Counsel Robert Mueller III had impaneled a grand jury and subpoenas were going out to Trump family and campaign associates.

The jurors will be drawn from a pool of citizens in a city Hillary Clinton swept with 91 percent of the vote. Trump got 4 percent.

Whatever indictments Mueller wants, Mueller gets.

Thanks to a media that savages him ceaselessly, Trump is down to 33 percent approval in a Quinnipiac University poll and below 40 percent in most of the rest.

Before Trump departed D.C., The Washington Post ran transcripts of his phone conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia.

Even Obama administration veterans were stunned.

So, it is time to ask: If this city brings Trump down, will the rest of America rejoice?

What will be the reaction out there in fly-over country, that land where the “deplorables” dwell who produce the soldiers to fight our wars? Will they toast the “free press” that brought down the president they elected, and in whom they had placed so much hope?

My guess: The reaction will be one of bitterness, cynicism, despair, a sense that the fix is in, that no matter what we do, they will not let us win. If Trump is brought down, American democracy will take a pasting. It will be seen as a fraud. And the backlash will poison our politics to where only an attack from abroad, like 9/11, will reunite us.

Our media preen and posture as the defenders of democracy, devoted to truth, who provide us round-the-clock protection from tyranny. But half the nation already sees the media as a propaganda arm of a liberal establishment that the people have rejected time and again.

Consider the Post's publication of the transcripts of Trump's calls with Mexico's president and Australia's prime minister.

When reporter Greg Miller got these transcripts, his editors, knowing they would damage Trump, plastered them on Page 1.

The Post was letting itself be used by a leaker engaged in disloyal and possibly criminal misconduct. Yet the Post agreed to provide confidentiality and to hide the Trump-hater's identity.

This is what we do, says the Post. People have a right to know if President Trump says one thing at rallies about Mexico paying for the wall and another to the president of Mexico. This is a story.

But there is a far larger story here, of which this Post piece is but an exhibit. It is the story of a concerted campaign, in which the anti-Trump media publish leaks, even criminal leaks, out of the FBI, CIA, NSA and NSC, to bring down a president whom the Beltway media and their deep-state collaborators both despise and wish to destroy.

Did Trump collude with Putin to defeat Clinton, the Beltway media demand to know, even as they daily collude with deep-state criminals to bring down the president of the United States.

And if there is an unfolding silent coup by the regime Americans repudiated in 2016 — to use security leaks and the lethal weapon of a special counsel to overturn the election results — is that not a story worth covering as much as what Trump said to Pena Nieto?

Get Trump
Do the people not have a right know who are the snakes collaborating with the Never-Trump press to bring down their head of state? Is not discovering the identities of deep-state felons a story that investigative reporters should be all over?

Do the people not have a right know who are the snakes collaborating with the Never-Trump press to bring down their head of state? Is not discovering the identities of deep-state felons a story that investigative reporters should be all over?

If Greg Miller is obligated to protect his source, fine. But why are other journalists not exposing his identity?

The answer suggests itself. This is a collaborative enterprise, where everyone protects everyone else's sources, because all have the same goal: the dumping of Trump. If that requires collusion with criminals, so be it.

The Justice Department is now running down the leaks, and the ACLU's Ben Wizner is apoplectic:

“Every American should be concerned about the Trump administration's threat to step up its efforts against whistleblowers and journalists. A crackdown on leaks is a crackdown on the free press and on democracy.”

That's one way to put it. Another is that some of these “whistleblowers” are political criminals who reject the verdict of the American electorate in 2016 and are out to overturn it. And the aforementioned “journalists” are their enablers and collaborators.

And if, as Wizner's asserts, protecting secrets is tantamount to a “crackdown on the free press and democracy,” no wonder the free press and democracy are falling into disrepute all over the world.

By colluding, the mainstream media, deep state, and the special prosecutor's button men, with a license to roam, may bring down yet another president. So doing, they will validate John Adams's insight:

“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

Should Mr. Trump be removed, and I think even for “I helped Hillary sell uranium to Putin” Mueller it will be a stretch, it will put the McCain/Clinton perpetual war party back in the driver’s seat overnight. We will be eyeballs deep in a major land war in Eurasia within six months. The globalists are salivating over this possibility, as to them it means they will finally have the opportunity to remove the last obstacle to their agenda, the American people. What they just don’t seem capable of understanding is that their success will be their undoing. The conflict WILL… Read more »

It appears to me that these articles are to engage the mind and that the readers should give commentary that pertains to the articles and should not devolve into personal attacks on each other.
My personal opinion is that we should stick to the subject and not fall into the trap losing sight of the ball which is whether or not there is a coup underway against a sitting President.

You fools just parrot Buchanan. He tells you what to think and you go, “Oh Yes, I am so outraged and I’m ready for a civil war because Buchanan and Rush Limbaugh told me to.” You should all move south and live in the same state. That would make the civil war you want easier. Colon Girl could work reconnaissance for you, on her broomstick.

Democracy is mob rule. Republic stands for the rights of the individuals. Personally, I will never allow a mob to rule me.
One thing Leftist\Socialist\Gloabalist do understand is we have all the guns, hence they will never have thier way until they take them. One thing they don’t undestand, is we have the law, law enforcement and the military (read the Consitution to which the vow) on our side. Gonnaa be some fat fishes in the sea.

PS Wild Bill your correct RHINOs gonna’ pay. Here is AZ we are taking down two McCain and Flake…say goodbye!

@ R. Anderson, That sure is good to hear and I hope you in AZ can pull it off. McCain calls himself a maverick but most call him a RINO and Flake is just that, he is only trying to preserve himself and is not concerned with the country.
That would mean two down and many more to go.

You deluded clowns live in an alternative universe. Everything Trump is about to get he has brought upon himself. Arrogance, thin skin and hubris coupled with a uncontrollable ego and total a disdain for more than half of the US population. Payback is a coming. You’re all going to look pretty silly when elections swing back to Democrats. It’s a shame, it didn’t have to be that way–you could have reined him in, but instead you chose to encourage him. Now you lose and you won’t get back in for a generation, if ever.

I wonder if the American people have enough spine to stand up and tell the Deep Staters to pound sand? I think the American people have gone soft, not only in beliefs but in the head as well. They don’t recognize how they have been under assault by the Socialists for YEARS, and Obama was the first overt attempt to stuff the America we all know into the dust bin of history.

There will be no coup. The pres. can fire anyone that sits at his pleasure. The pres. is the head of the Repub party and can control campaign funds. But there will be a takeover at the primaries. We will hold our noses, register Repub so that we can vote in the Repub primary, and we will pick new Republicans. The elitists and RINOs won’t know what hit them. And it does not cost a thing, just a little elbow grease.
