Skip to comments.Bracken: What I Saw At The Coup
Posted on 06/24/2013 1:33:27 PM PDT by OregonRancher
This is the first time in many years that I have put pen to paper for a lengthy letter, so please forgive my misspellings, poor handwriting or any other errors. I will probably do this in one go and be finished with it. I wont need much of this new notebook. Its a nice room, desk and chair, but really, no computer? I just wish they would stop the hammering outside. I need to focus in order to write well.
No one person could possibly expect to know the full truth about such a complex history, so near to its time. But I know what I know, saw what I saw, and heard what I heard. Now its time to set the record straight, at least about what transpired between some of the key players in the lead up to the recent events.
What I have heard called the plan began as idle office chat, nothing more. (Of course, not much chat is ever truly idle at the very highest levels of power, between senior presidential advisors.) The first time I heard it mentioned was over lunch with Dennis in the White House Mess, down in the basement next to the situation room. We were at a quiet corner table of the wood-paneled dining room, tossing ideas for the next talking points back and forth. Routine.

We in Louisiana are ready for CW2 and will secede
Brilliant, scary, and probably close to future happenings
They’re already threatening Boner, et al. They can make noises but don’t dare cross the line.
The idea of AmRev2 makes more sense. A few individual states here and there that attempt secession will not even get as far as the Confederacy did. Stupid idea then and now.
A second Declaration declaring independence from the new “king” would be a start and any real action would start out as tenuous as the first rev did. It is estimated that at least half of the colonists did not initially support the actions of 1775-76 and that at the end at least 1/3 still were loyalists. A sizeable portion of the population at the time laid back and rode out the conflict as best they could for as long as they could.
In the end, the goals were achieved and we ended up with a Constitutional Republic which is today in dire need of restoration.
Highly preiscient, considering the date it was originally posted...and still unfolding as we speak.
More like AmRev3. AmRev2 was inappropriately called a “Civil War”.
The Confederacy had no designs on taking over the Federal government of the USA.
Nope—We just wanted to be left alone to pursue our economic self-interests.
>> Brilliant, scary, and probably close to future happenings
From Mr. Bracken’s prose: “I have the majority leader on a leash.I could drag him around the White House on all-fours if I wanted to...”
Future happenings? Hell, that’s YESTERDAY’s happenings! And TODAY’S. Boener is their puppy on a leash; no question about it.
That was a good read.
I can’t believe this was written 9 months ago. It reads like something based entirely on recent events. Eerily prescient, and I am fearful that the One has something like this planned. But the sermon at church yesterday was on Psalm 37:1-4. The first two verses are a wonderful promise:
Do not fret because of evildoers,
Be not envious toward wrongdoers.
For they will wither quickly like the grass
And fade like the green herb.
No, but separation as a small group of states was doomed from the beginning.
You take a side, youre along for the ride.
A traitor in front of a camera is still just a traitor."
Wow! Just wow! Go to the link. Great read.
My twin essays represent starkly different visions of the future that would-be tyrants, their hopeful henchmen and other self-deluded nimrods may want to consider, before ordering the U.S. military or federal agencies to suppress Americans.
Well done Mr. Bracken, well done.
We are ready.
They under-estimate how quickly reaction would come in such a scenario.
Great short story, Matt.
And photos of Roberts in compromising homosexual positions. Wouldn’t bet against it.
They also under-estimate the resolve of angry patriots should this story come into being. The pResident mentioned in this true to life fictional story would have no place to hide.
Great read! I can see this playing out almost exactly as written...
At least there would be no fleeing on the blue and white taxi. It would be grounded.
Here’s Matts home page:
His books are even better.
He would most likely be found hiding in a spider hole and most likely would meet the same fate as the last despot who sought refuge in one
The rate that we are becoming a socialist state is breathtaking. Hard to believe that Reagan only left office 15 years ago.
The only problem with that reality would unfortunately not make it so easy. It’s a nice narrative, but too optimistic about how it would turn out. I think it’s too happy of an ending compared to the last comparable time - the Civil War.
Check your math. It was 24 years ago when Reagan left office.
P.S. Don’t forget the fact that the feds have used the WOD as an excuse to enact hundreds if not thousands of draconian laws.
Only seems like 15. :)
The only flaw in that story, is that not enough leftists were hung.
I wouldn't put that past this current administration, for sure. You have captured how these godless Marxists would conduct business if they suddenly sprouted nads.
Why didn’t the vessel didn’t have an “accident” that resulted in its sinking at the media event?
That would still leave room for the same outcome for the target, yet make the point that much more profound.
Please do not change titles.
