Schlichter Warns "This Is A Coup Against Our Right To Govern Ourselves"

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Kurt Schlichter via,

The blizzard of lies and distraction blowing through Washington is not just any routine stuffstorm, but a calculated attempt to bring down a president – our president, not the establishment’s president. And more than that, it’s an attempt to ensure that we never again have the ability to disrupt the bipartisan D.C. cabal’s permanent supremacy by inserting a chief executive who refuses to kiss their collective Reid.

This is a coup against us. It’s a coordinated campaign by liberals and their allies in the bureaucracy and media to once and for all ensure their perpetual rule over us. We need to fight it, here and now, so we don’t have to fight it down at the bottom of this slippery slope.

It’s brazen. It’s bold. It’s insulting to our intelligence. They aren’t even trying to hide their lies anymore. Truth is irrelevant; this is a choreographed dance routine and everyone has his moves. Call it Breakin’ 2: Electric Leakaroo, except instead of trying to save the community center they’re trying to save their power and prestige.

To buy the media narrative on this latest Russian nonsense, you must believe:

1. That whatever was revealed was super-secret, though we don’t know exactly what it was. When in doubt, assume it’s on par with the nuclear codes!


2. That there was no good reason to share this info with Russia, like coordinating our fight against our joint enemy or to prevent another Russian airliner massacre. Because why would we want another power fighting ISIS or civilians not to be blown out of the sky?


3. That LTG McMaster, who literally wrote the book on soldiers standing up to misbehaving civilian leaders and displayed immense personal courage in battle, turned chicken and sat there silently as Trump monologued about this unknown mystery info of doomsday-level import.


4. That LTG McMaster lied on camera. Twice. And that Secretary of State Tillerson lied too.


5. That random anonymous sources in an intelligence community that hates Trump with a burning passion must be believed without question, though we don’t know their identities or their motives.


6. That these anonymous randos must be believed, even though they were not actually in the room to, you know, actually hear what happened. The traditional bar on hearsay is apparently now just a bourgeois conceit.


7. That when the Washington Post and the rest of the media publishes classified stuff (including intelligence provided by allies) leaked by anyone not named “Donald Trump,” it’s awesome.


8. That the Washington Post and the rest of the media, which has been wrong over and over again in their reporting, are not wrong again.


9. That the Washington Post and the rest of the media are objective and have no anti-Trump bias, even though they are literally cheering the hits on the president.


10. That there are unicorns.

The latest pseudo-scandal is that Trump doesn’t think Mike Flynn did anything wrong, and told James Comey so back in February. So basically, Trump expressed the same view he had of the whole Flynn nonsense to Comey as he has expressed to every interviewer. Comey did nothing, and said nothing (even when testifying to Congress) for nearly three months, because it was nothing. The Russian snipe hunt continued throughout unabated. That off-hand comment was a pretty poor attempt at obstruction of justice since it didn’t obstruct anything – to the limited extent these Russian witch hunts can be confused with “justice” at all.

So the Menschian thinkers who usually scream “Treason!” are now screaming “Obstruction of Justice!” It’s adorable when they learn new terms and try to use them correctly; they’re so proud of themselves and their vocabulary building that you almost feel bad having to point out that they sound like idiots.

It is nice, though, to have liberals finally come out against the abuse of executive power, misuse of classified material, and Russians. Welcome to the party, except we know you’re full of Schumer.

It’s all lies, and they know it and we know it. Normal people just shake their heads and wonder why Washington is so consumed with political nonsense instead of solving problems. But then, Washington does not produce solutions. It produces only political nonsense.

This is a concentrated, coordinated effort by elite insiders to take down not this president – Trump’s not the point here – but to take down us, the normal American they seek to rule. Someone came to Washington who wasn’t part of the club, and that’s intolerable. So they are desperate to expel him, and by extension, us.

Every day will be a crisis, every action he takes will be the worst thing that has ever happened, and every step towards keeping his promises a crime.


Talk to Russians? IT’S TREASON!

Telling Comey he wishes this nonsense would stop? OBSTRUTION OF JUSTICE EVEN THOUGH NOTHING WAS OBSTRUCTED!

Now, this campaign isn’t aimed at us. Normal people, people who don’t live in DC or NYC or LA, just tune it out. After all these years, and with the help of the web, we normals know the game. We’re woke, as the dorky leftists say.

The target of this constant barrage is the soft and the stupid, the smug and the sanctimonious, the wusses and the surrender flunkies. That’s why you get the girlish-handed likes of David Brooks writing dainty columns that give Trump such a pinch! That’s why David Frum starts using words like “courage” to impugn actual men who have done actual man-things, like LTG McMaster. That’s why Kasich spews his bilious funk of sanctimony and submission, among other funks. It’s all to appeal to the Fredocons, the soft-headed RINOs who are smart, not dumb like everyone says, who just want something for themselves – attention, approval, and media pats on their pointy little heads.

So these fussy ninnies, fresh from having some v-capped crone screeching at them that they will vote to take away her right to have taxpayers fork cash over to kill the baby no man will ever give her, wander outside into a wall of mics and cameras and pause. Then they talk, and when what they say trashes Trump sufficiently, the smiles from the press come, and the nods, and then the faux respect. Now they are no longer mean old Rethuglicans but dauntless heroes, at least in Georgetown, because they are willing to dance and caper to the tune of the establishment.

This tsunami of baloney isn’t aimed at us. It’s aimed at them, the Republicans who are foolish enough to believe their new friends when they whisper words like “honor” and “patriotism.” Some of the marks are real patriots who fall prey to these liars when they couch their bogus narrative in national defense terms. But the majority of the marks are just morons.

When targeting the dummies, the goal is simple. Draw off enough weak, attention-addicted RINOs to make it impossible for the President to govern. Then, hopefully, us normals will shrug, and slink away, having relearned our place. After all, we’re deplorable.

And when the liberal establishment retakes power, and the mavericks and goody-goodies get tossed aside, the bureaucracy, media and the Democrats will conspire to ensure that no one can ever take their power from them again. But they haven’t considered the consequences. We’ll object.

So we have to fight against this cable network coup. Because, if we don’t fight now, we all may end up fighting later.

Anyone who does not eagerly anticipate a violent conflict which will destroy American leftism for eternity is a fool.

Trump is a proxy for the American Oligarchy's fear of the American People. They have all been criminally compromised since their last attempt to overturn the will of the People 11/22/63

jmack's picture

You are a fool.    If there were a violent civil war in America, it would be a proxy war,  either from the get go, or at a point when one side or the other felt it was judicious to do so, they would seek other sovereigns help.  And that help would be forthcoming, if not pre-planned to be needed, because if the progressive left leaned on China to win a domestic battle, it would change the world order paradigm, or perhaps China would just seek to extend the hostilities as they consolidated their new global hegemony.  Regardless, your moronic myopia, to welcome violent conflict, when  the left in America should be laughed out of polite company, they should be ridiculed and ostracized, they should be disdained like a smelly fart.  Once you have to bow down to violent action to deal with them, you have already lost.

Your too smart for this site. Don't waste your time here.

oh, so smart. yeah, i clearly see the day this "man" holds his pen dear to his heart as he is popped in the head with a .223

so be it. pens only hold power as long as ink is trusted. trust is vanishing.

then, the power of war takes hold, only two are left. the smart ones that avoided the cross fire and the victors.

take your pick. believing otherwise is a fools errand of ignorance of the human species survival, ie- lust for land, power and control of all other humans.

Well, aren't you the dainty little polite one. Just get your candy ass out of the way and let patriots take care of the violent Left. 

TheReplacement's picture

I agree with you that it will be an awful thing and destructive beyond reckoning.  I also agree that leftists should be laughed out of the room.  However, they are not.  They always get a full say and when you disagree you become a nazi.  There is only so much debate to be had.  Compared to 240 years ago when they didn't even exist here, they are winning and it is a landslide.  The time comes to fight or surrender.  They make it so there is no other choice.  Their agenda is to indoctrinate and bamboozle enough people to take the fighting option off the table as a realistic means of resistance.

What you say made sense 150 years ago but no longer.

Never happen.

98% of the world is "leftism".  You need to wake the hell up and try seeing the world outside your candy ass American bubble.

100 percent, something for nothing. and don't tell me you walked by a c note and ignored it because it wasn't yours...

actually it is a form of survival. of course, a manifestation of control by psychopaths. simple shit maynard; playing on your survival, but ironically the demise of the masses, repeated adnaussem.

Anyone who does not understand that this is not about the "left" per se but rather about those who want absolute power--those of the left plus the McCain right, the Bush crime family right, the Clinton crime family faux left (faux gauche?), the right bankers/munitions manufacturers/war mongers right--is eternally a fool.

The so-called "left" in this country is merely some sceeching adolescents posturing about hoping to get laid.

As to violent conflict, let me ask this question: Who owns and controls all the real weapons? It is certainly not the "left". The US military controls the weapons and in any conflict with mere citizens, it will triumph. Freedom and hardy individualism are hardly things the military--any military--respect. The military expects obedience--your obedience. Withhold it or challenge the official government's monopoly on it, and you will find out your revolt, rebellion, whatever will last almost no time at all.

The feel-good left hardly exists at all. What we have instead is various fascist factions using the rhetoric of the left to further their own agendas to gain power, absolute power. Were the Clintons ever on the left? Dream on! Was Obama on the left? Of course not! Were the Bushes left? Duh, no! Nor McCain, the terrorist's best friend. Pay no attention to their words. Pay no attention to the bones they toss to the rabble poor. Pay attention to their goals. Fascists all! Control freaks all! Lovers of power for themselves and subservience for everyone else.

Johnny got your gun? How far you think that's going to get you against a combat helicoper attack? Got anti-helicopter missiles? How far you think that's going to get you against a called airstrike on your living room and bunker busters for your bunker?

So stop yammering on about "the left"; that's a distraction. Stop yammering on about those 1950s "commies" or 1940s "chicoms". That's all over. That's history. Your enemy is not them, not the left, not socialism. Your enemy is those using commies, chicoms, socialism as tools to own you. But they are neither communists nor socialists; they are plain old totalitarians. Get that right and you can forget a lot of mental flack that they strew about to confuse you.

And any president representing the people over the military industrial complex is simply removed

Kennedy for wanting to end vietnam, nixon for easing relations between china and russia, and Trump for obvious reasons

red1chief's picture

Trump is friendly to all these shady actors, but I think they will consider Pence more able to pass their crap like the "health care plan".

bshirley1968's picture

Yeah.  Obvious reasons like the $350 billion arms deal he just made with Saudi Arabia. 

Obvious to some..........not so much to others............Trumptards......

The purpose of Progressivism is the silencing of the collective. Only ONE voice.

It is well beyond a difference of ideology. It is about absolutism, zero tolerance, debate is over, was over before it ever started.

Kind of like the global warming hoax.  They kept on repeating that the science was settled in order to shut down the discussion.

vietnamvet's picture

Well, he's not my President, didn't vote for him.  And I certainly can't see how any rational person would still support this double-dealing terrorist-supporting narcissistic man-boy Cheeto-in Chief.  To be honest, I had mild expectations that he would actually do some of the smarter things he said on campaign, like friending Russia, getting out of Syria, getting rid of career bureacrats, etc., and not staffing his cabinet with deep state actors.  BTW, I felt largely the same way about President Obama, didn't vote for him, etc etc.

Oldwood's picture

Trump's feet are in quicksand while he is under attack from all sides. It's working because expectations are so high on both sides, supporters disappointed and haters enraged.

You are fitting in perfectly. The exact response they were looking for.

 Exactly Oldwood. People need to understand when you are fighting against the deep state they are going to use psyops.

new game's picture

if one can not outsmart the enemy than one losses. simple shit maynard.

if the fight is this deep state cabel, smarten up. start by not supporting their regime of order by chaos.

opt out, the best one can. the power of numbers is the one thing they can not control.

and i am doing just that...

I DO govern myself. That's why I've never voted in my life.

Make your own laws do you? Print your money and pay no taxes?

Live in delusion that refusing to vote makes you exempt from the consequences. Reality must REALLY suck for you!

oldguyonBMXbike's picture

Yes, I do make my own laws.  Every man a king. 


You seem to live under the delusion that some sort of Rule of Law exists.  Believe me, it doesn't.


And, yes, yes it does exempt me.  I do not give my power to demons like you do.

 i like your style, agreed in the sense that it is a fuk you in their face. keeps working for me because their laws are bullshit and one must be smarter than the enforcement and minions behind the scene.

my laws dovetail with common sense and what ordinary free peoples do.

just keep playing chess and keep the mind sharp. tailwhips, 360 tailwips and chess, and some tactical outings will roundout prepardness.

Okay, when are we going to see actual planning to overthrow this deep state?  How and when will it happen?  Unless this is being planned for real, this is all cheap talk.

The only way we take our country back is spilling blood.  Lots of it.  That'll get their fucking attention. 

A good start would be detonation of the buildings where the mouthpieces of the deep state spew their venom and lies - WAPO/NYT.  Blame it on the "terrorists".  That would be fitting irony.  And don't stop there.

Speaking of coups...

I found this posting about Seth Rich fascinating:

Apparently in the past 24 hours more than one Seth Rich reddit account has been identified... and in the past 24 hours someone has been magically editing his posts from nearly a year ago to scrub them of details that help prove it's Seth Rich.

neighsayer's picture

Do you really think the people at 4chan and other sites can get more information, especially if people at reddit altered the posts?

seek's picture

The 4chan folks archived pretty much everything ahead of reddit altering it (which is why we know it was altered.) So no concerns with that -- the bigger worry is something that hasn't been uncovered getting deleted. And of course those reddit accounts might have private messages that the FBI/etc would get access to via a legal process, and those could be tampered with.

At this point I'd say the forces behind Seth Rich's death are on the losing side of the battle, as least as far as this information is concerned. No wonder they're freaking out about it.
