A former top general and current executive at the Family Research Council says members of the military have considered staging a coup d'état against President, but will not because of civilian control of the military.
"People I've spoken to would like to see the military 'fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president,' " retired Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin told World Net Daily, a website best known for pushing Obama "birther" conspiracy theories. "Our Constitution puts a civilian in charge of the military and as a result a coup would not be constitutional. You're not going to see a coup in the military."
"I talk to a lot of folks who don't support where Obama is taking the military, but in the military they can't say anything," Boykin said.
Boykin, an evangelical Christian who is now the executive vice president of the Family Research Council, was publicly repudiated by President Bush twice in 2003 for saying Muslims worship an "idol" and not "a real God." Last year, Boykin abruptly pulled out of appearing at a West Point ceremony after controversy erupted over the invitation. (Boykin has also said Islam "should not be protected under the First Amendment" and that there should be "no mosques in America" because "a mosque is an embassy for Islam and they recognize only a global caliphate.")

Stupid. That would be catastrophic.
Wow! This is from National Journal not InfoWars. Shows you how close we are to dictatorville.
Maybe he heard wrong. Sounds like they want to go out with the president.
This is not something you talk about. You either DO IT or KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. There is no in-between. The general may find his bank account empty in the near future due to this.
First, NJ should hire a copy editor.
True - only if they stop at the President. The whole cockroach infestation at the White House needs a good fumigating. Then follow the slime trail back to Chicago.
Well he’s “taking out” generals almost weekly.
Ernst Rohm was plotting a coup.
We just did what was necessary.
And some in the military love the president. So what?
Both houses and the judicial are enablers.
So that’s the reason for the Night of The Long Knives?
If they don’t do it in the military they’ll do it as part of a patriot militia. One or the other.
There were more than one set of officer folks who plotted coups against Hitler.
That is why it’s called World Nut Daily...
That was the after-the-fact cover story.
It was utterly stupid of him to make such a statement in public. In fact, he’s gotta be crazy.
Limp Dick/No Balls Boner will just sit there and watch and cry while Obama does what he does.
Roberts still hasn’t crawled out of Obama’s colon since he was strongarmed to change his vote on Obamacare’s constitutionality.
Or he could be laying groundwork for a false flag/ White House Reichstag fire.
