Let's plot the Trump coup together
By Wesley Pruden - The Washington Times - Thursday, September 6, 2018

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Impeachment is too slow. Assassination is too messy. A coup d’etat sounds just about right, and it sounds French besides. Come, let us plot together.

The New York Times, marketed under the conceit that it supplies "All the news that’s fit to print," clearly wants to help with the coup and rid the nation of the man the plotters regard as a blowhard president out to rain on the established order.

The publication in The New York Times of an op-ed essay about how plotters at the White House are determined to block the president's aims and wishes at every turn, landed in Washington with a great noise. The newspaper won’t say who wrote the account of how the miserable wise men at the White House have even discussed using the 25th Amendment, which sets out how to remove from office a president unable to perform the duties of a president, to rid Washington of this president.

Oh Boy,the Washington Times is saber rattling....I believe American Patriots and United States Military big wigs are waiting for another "Shot Heard Around The World".Another Civil War will solve everything.It won't last very long and it will expose fake Americans.

Publishing such dark speculation without saying who the speculator is, is a remarkable departure from the high and holy which newspapers have honored almost since Johannes Gutenberg, the German blacksmith who invented movable type 500 years ago to make newspapers possible.

The capital is currently in a mad rush in three or four directions at once to discover the identity of Mr. Anonymous. They're sure he’s a mister because an editor at the newspaper used, perhaps inadvertently, the pronoun "he" to describe the author. Some people eager to rush to judgment concluded that one of the editors sat down and wrote the op-ed himself, but the op-ed was written in the brisk and straightforward English well beyond the Dick-and-Jane prose style of the editorial page of the Old Gray Lady.

But such speculation is plausible because it wouldn't be the first time The New York Times has been guilty of playing tricks on the reader. Several years ago, citing "senior industry experts and insiders," the newspaper set out to "expose" the fracking industry, claiming that energy experts and insiders considered fracking "little more than a Ponzi scheme."

I decided to look this one up, because his name sounded familiar. I found this:

So I read this article and a couple others. All I can say is, no one does "Drama Queen" quite like a right wing pundit.

The NEW YORK SLIMES, what a waste of a good tree to print that rag.

Even their own reporters say they are a left wing branch of the Democrat party.

The "energy analyst" and a "federal analyst" quoted by The New York Times turned out to be an intern at the U.S. Energy Information Agency. Vague terms like analyst, insider, expert and official are words of art much admired by polemicists disguising themselves as reporters and pundits.

Luckily for the plotters (if luck was actually what it was), the op-ed was published just as Bob Woodward is out with his latest book, "Fear," which further describes the carnival that Trump Cabinet meetings are said to be, with the president making free with vulgar street talk and wild demands to rid the world of villains.

In a discussion of what to do about Bashar Assad, the president of Syria who has killed many thousands of his own people with chemicals and poisons, Mr. Trump is said to have told James Mattis, the secretary of defense, with an assortment of verbs and adverbs you might hear on a construction site, "Let’s kill him! Let’s go in and kill him! Let’s kill the lot of them!"

This article is obviously satire and not meant to be taken literally. Coups are strictly third world. I am sure there are some on the far left fringes who favor this type of removal. Trump will likely be in office until at least January 2021 and if Democrats lose their focus on issues he may very well be in office beyond that time. Democrats have forgotten real issues and only know how to attack and seek to undermine a president. Are do they just have nothing of value to offer? I hear nothing constructive from any of them.

Other than some of the controversial stuff, it matched with his own personally written bio.

Liberals are not the ones babbling about a coup. That's all coming from the far right.

As for undermining a president, do you think Democrats are doing that with the GOP holding majorities in House and Senate? How soon the right forgets that in 2009, both House and Senate Republicans made it their PUBLICLY STATED mission to block everything Obama wanted to do.

But go ahead, keep regurgitating what the right wing pundits are saying, keep thinking of liberals as the enemy. I wouldn't want anyone to strain their brain by actually informing themselves with facts as long as those alternative facts are working for them. Cognitive dissonance isn't pretty.

You can see what a total failure Obama was against what he called the junior varsity. He would even allow oil trucks selling Isis oil to be fired upon because the driver might not be ISIS. Trump took the restraints off the military and they decimate ISIS in a short time ! Thank you President Trump

You can read the liberal comments hear and clearly see the attitude of liberals. They want to impeach the President because he won the election ! How many times do you need to hear the derangement of Maxine Waters calling for impeachment and getting in Republicans faces !

No, they are using the word 'impeachment" instead of the real word, to make themselves look like heros.

Let us not forget that Democrats and libs stating the President committed treason, a crime punishable by death. Remember when the Democrats, including a member actively serving in Congress, called on the military? They asked where is the military in this? That in and of itself should have been seen as sedition at the minimum and treason at the worst.
So sorry with the exception of Mad Cow Waters the Democrats are calling for a coup with less harsh terms.

Words, and their definitions, matter. A coup is defined as "a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government." No one is proposing anything remotely like that. The law still rules in America. And no one feels like a hero about any of this, as far as I know, outside of a few extremists that I don't take seriously. I don't know of anyone who is happy or gleeful about the prospect of impeachment, and I'm doubting that will even happen unless Mueller's report includes solid evidence of Trump having committed a crime.

Mr. Woodward insists he has everything on tape, and maybe he does. One pundit who shares Mr. Woodward’s opinion of himself describes him as "known for his impeccable research and honesty." But he has used his lively imagination to fill in the blanks, and not all of it sounds very peccable.

He once claimed to have interviewed the late William Casey, the director of the CIA, on his deathbed at the end of a long illness. He said he slipped past an iron ring of CIA operatives, nurses and hospital security and finally Mrs. Casey, all determined to let no one disturb him as he lay in a coma. But the intrepid Mr. Woodward lets nothing stop the master interrogator on his appointed rounds, and he worked out a code, something like wink your right eye to say yes and flutter your left eyelid for no. He got his scoop.

When you have to invent a crime it certainly is. As I said, "impeachment" is a cover up for what is really happening.

I think if the radical left thought they had the support of the military they would stage a real coup and install Hillary. And I'll bet she still drools over the prospect.
