Skip to comments.Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention
Posted on 05/19/2010 11:22:07 AM PDT by anniegetyourgun
There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America's military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the "Obama problem." Don't dismiss it as unrealistic.
America isn't the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn't mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:

At this point, nothing would shock me.
The soft revolution begins in Nov.
This is rubbish. We have him on the ropes and stupid talk like this does nothing but make him popular.
I pray for this each and every day.
Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable
America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized.
Bad idea. No national institution is more respected than the American military. Currently the Left attacks our military at its peril (remember the reaction to “General Betray US”?. A coup would politicize the military in the eyes of the Left and allow them, if they ever won another election, to attack it at will, to the detriment of our national security.
Better to go through the democratic (small “d”) process and watch these Marxists be repudiated by the people who originally elected them.
Unlikely, unless Obama goes quite a lot further.
Really? While Obama wields his veto & E.O. & regulation pen? Even a takeover by GOP in the House can’t stop a guy who believes his agenda justifies the means.
these dopes are the same brain dead rat wingers who wrote that GWB would impose marshal law and would not allow emperor obama to take the oath in 1/2009...remember that one??
Yep, no reason to go to the next box of liberty until the ballot box is no longer an option.
Would you stop...LOL.... this post is just MSNBC candy.
Give it up, folks. It’s not gonna happen. Our military obeys the civilian authority, period.
I agree. I loathe Obama with every fiber of my being, but the military is not going to commit treason. Articles like this are just stupid.
Oh please...This is nonsense.
But the fast-track majority will be gone, that will make a difference.
AT this point, this would be an absolutely disasterous idea. We are supposed to be the advocates of the Constitution and Rule of Law, not expediency.
Nothing, not even Obama, could do more to harm both the rule of law and the Constitution. If demographic and educational trends persist, the Republic may well be doomed, and whatever form of tyranny follows will be the legacy that the Boomers bequeath their posterity.
Agreed - it will never happen...regardless of what Obama does.
“Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention
I pray for this each and every day.”
Be very careful what you wish for.
Buddy, YOUR beloved country, founded by patriots and men of principle, has been COUPED by Socialists and Communist, and you’re worried about some dictionary definition of a democratic republic???????? A coup has ALREADY occurred right under YOUR nose! Wake up and smell the REVOLUTION!
I think that the Left currrently attacks the military at will. I don’t see that would be much different if there would be a coup.
Don’t count on it. Beleive it or not, there are plenty of people in the military both uniformed and civilian, who really like Obama and many more who are fairly apolitical but to whom the idea of overthrowing a sitting President would never fly.
He will LOVE that!!!
This stupid SOB is such poison for America (and so are his hateful friends)!
You could put all their ‘attributes’ into one place and still not make ONE single average politician. Even together they do not have the intellectual horsepower of a tree slug.
Anyone that has doubts about how far Obama and his crooks will go to turn America into a socialist country is very sadly mistaken! The Constituion IS being trashed and trampled whenever the Marxist can find a new way to do it! He will stop at nothing..and Americans are too complacent to realize it. By the way it is MARTIAL law, not marshall law. And as for November..will we still have elections? I doubt it!
Trying to provoke a reaction me thinks.
“....We have him on the ropes...”
Never, never underestimate the sleaziness and greed of a liberal.
If they can do it, they will.
I can only hope “Obamasleazedisease” doesn’t overcome our military. Hopefully, we’ve cut off officer inputs from our “top” commie schools.
Not me. If it happens it will be a sign that Obama is closely following the Castro/Chavez model. It will be a ruse to a weed out those not loyal to Obama in the military. Expect any coup to be quickly followed by a return to power and purge in the military.
This is ludicrous.
What generals are you referring to? The ones that were forced out for being Christian? The one’s that ran for president on the Democratic ticket?
The military has gone PC. The military will not be for saving the constitution if it acts, it will be for propping up an illegal regime.
The military has no play in a situation like this. You’d have to have a thousand officers that thought exactly alike and acted in unison.
Watch Valkyrie if you think this could be pulled off.
Baloney! Who’s floating this balloon?
At the same time,
we have to consider how many of them would fire on their fellow citizens if ordered to in order to “suppress a rebellion”, say, in Arizona or Texas.
This is BS....
It is far more likely that a military coup, even if it began as a genuine effort to restore the Constitution, or solve the Obama problem, would be hijacked and transformed into an effort to subjugate the entire country under a militarized police state to an even greater extent than it is now.
The more probable scenario is the one that was outlined by Tommy Franks in a 2003 interview with the mens lifestyle magazine Cigar Aficionado, where a military form of government would be implemented in the aftermath of a huge terror attack that kills millions.
Franks predicted that another mass casualty terror attack would occur that would cause the population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event. Which in fact, then begins to unravel the fabric of our Constitution.
I know it could never happen...and so does Obama.
I was expecting a military coup when Clinton infested the Whitehouse!
I can easily dismiss it as unrealistic. So would anyone who spent any time in the military.
THAT will NEVER happen.
So American voters don’t decide elections now, the army does?
Is this the call now, end free elections, and fight for control of military power?
Totally unrealistic...by all standards of today’s America.
Of course we will have elections. And the New Black Panthers will make sure it is "fair".
I presume it’s the former WH speechwriter who said it that is floating it. But there’s no need to be concerned - it would never happen.
This is as Idiotic as the idea Bush was going to stage a terrorist act before leaving office to thwart the regime change.
Sorry, I’m dismissing it as being unrealistic.
We have only elections, riddled with fraud and based on the votes of an increasingly ignorant and selfish populace, remaining.
What could possibly go wrong?
Buddy, YOUR beloved country, founded by patriots and men of principle, has been COUPED by Socialists and Communist, and youre worried about some dictionary definition of a democratic republic???????? A coup has ALREADY occurred right under YOUR nose! Wake up and smell the REVOLUTION!
I don’t want it to happen. My question about floating pertains to people who put this out there who want a reaction from conservatives that says, ‘Yeah! Military coup!”. They’d love that.
