Former member of White House staff suggests U.S. military may overthrow Obama

politics 3 Comments »

John L. PerryUpdate: Newsmax has removed the article, but an archived version is available here.

John L. Perry, a newspaper editor who served on the White House staffs of both LBJ and Carter, wrote in his column for rightwing news site Newsmax that the U.S. military may be considering a “bloodless” coup to overthrow President Obama.

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.

Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

While Perry is sure to make it clear he is not “advocating” an overthrow of the government, he is trumpeting the notion to all that drink the kool-aid, I mean tea, and to them it makes no difference.

Expect this to be making the rounds in the MSM tomorrow.

Carrie PrejeanFormer Miss California Carrie Prejean and Rep. Michelle Bachman join other conservative lady wingnuts in a new pinup calendar this week called “2010 Great American Conservative Women,” published by the conservative think tank Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute.

Bachmann (Miss November) is the only member of Congress featured on the calendar. Beneath her picture is the following quotation: “Since the fall of Adam, freedom has not been the natural condition of man. However, America has chosen to light a candle, rather than curse the darkness, with the bright promise of life, liberty and freedom.”

A behind the scenes look at the making of the calendar below…

Other calendar girls include Phyllis Schlafly, Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin. Ouch.
