After The Coup, What Then?

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via,

That the Trump presidency is bedeviled is undeniable.

As President Donald Trump flew off for August at his Jersey club, there came word that Special Counsel Robert Mueller III had impaneled a grand jury and subpoenas were going out to Trump family and campaign associates.

The jurors will be drawn from a pool of citizens in a city Hillary Clinton swept with 91 percent of the vote. Trump got 4 percent.

Whatever indictments Mueller wants, Mueller gets.

Thanks to a media that savages him ceaselessly, Trump is down to 33 percent approval in a Quinnipiac University poll and below 40 percent in most of the rest.

Before Trump departed D.C., The Washington Post ran transcripts of his phone conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia.

Even Obama administration veterans were stunned.

So, it is time to ask: If this city brings Trump down, will the rest of America rejoice?

What will be the reaction out there in fly-over country, that land where the “deplorables” dwell who produce the soldiers to fight our wars? Will they toast the “free press” that brought down the president they elected, and in whom they had placed so much hope?

My guess: The reaction will be one of bitterness, cynicism, despair, a sense that the fix is in, that no matter what we do, they will not let us win. If Trump is brought down, American democracy will take a pasting. It will be seen as a fraud. And the backlash will poison our politics to where only an attack from abroad, like 9/11, will reunite us.

Our media preen and posture as the defenders of democracy, devoted to truth, who provide us round-the-clock protection from tyranny. But half the nation already sees the media as a propaganda arm of a liberal establishment that the people have rejected time and again.

Consider the Post’s publication of the transcripts of Trump’s calls with Mexico’s president and Australia’s prime minister.

When reporter Greg Miller got these transcripts, his editors, knowing they would damage Trump, plastered them on Page 1.

The Post was letting itself be used by a leaker engaged in disloyal and possibly criminal misconduct. Yet the Post agreed to provide confidentiality and to hide the Trump-hater’s identity.

This is what we do, says the Post. People have a right to know if President Trump says one thing at rallies about Mexico paying for the wall and another to the president of Mexico. This is a story.

But there is a far larger story here, of which this Post piece is but an exhibit. It is the story of a concerted campaign, in which the anti-Trump media publish leaks, even criminal leaks, out of the FBI, CIA, NSA and NSC, to bring down a president whom the Beltway media and their deep-state collaborators both despise and wish to destroy.

Did Trump collude with Putin to defeat Clinton, the Beltway media demand to know, even as they daily collude with deep-state criminals to bring down the president of the United States.

And if there is an unfolding silent coup by the regime Americans repudiated in 2016 — to use security leaks and the lethal weapon of a special counsel to overturn the election results — is that not a story worth covering as much as what Trump said to Pena Nieto?

Do the people not have a right know who are the snakes collaborating with the Never-Trump press to bring down their head of state? Is not discovering the identities of deep-state felons a story that investigative reporters should be all over?

If Greg Miller is obligated to protect his source, fine. But why are other journalists not exposing his identity?

The answer suggests itself. This is a collaborative enterprise, where everyone protects everyone else’s sources, because all have the same goal: the dumping of Trump. If that requires collusion with criminals, so be it.

The Justice Department is now running down the leaks, and the ACLU’s Ben Wizner is apoplectic:

“Every American should be concerned about the Trump administration’s threat to step up its efforts against whistleblowers and journalists. A crackdown on leaks is a crackdown on the free press and on democracy.”

That’s one way to put it. Another is that some of these “whistleblowers” are political criminals who reject the verdict of the American electorate in 2016 and are out to overturn it. And the aforementioned “journalists” are their enablers and collaborators.

And if, as Wizner’s asserts, protecting secrets is tantamount to a “crackdown on the free press and democracy,” no wonder the free press and democracy are falling into disrepute all over the world.

By colluding, the mainstream media, deep state, and the special prosecutor’s button men, with a license to roam, may bring down yet another president. So doing, they will validate John Adams’s insight:

“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

Then the ultimate utopia with FREE $HIT FOR EVERYBODY(!!!!!) can come to fruition. Unicorns will be dancing in the streets. Nobody will be without health care. All spaces will be safe spaces without micro-aggression.

Everybody will vote for the correct people - or go to jail.

Everyone will be happy - or go to jail.

Nobody will question The Master Diversity Plan (see Google) - or be mocked, fired, and sent to re-education camp. Then go to jail.

Nancy Pelosi and Hillary(!) will FINALLY be allowed to break through the glass ceiling and lead us all - or go to jail.

The ultimate paradise will be upon us. Agree, or go to jail...

If the zombified corpse of John McCain thinks he's going to sing me to sleep after the lovin' he's got another thing coming.

The new Amerikan flag should be a white cloudy background with a unicorn under a rainbow crapping skittles.  The rainbow represents both the fantasy of " the world being a better, more perfected place to live in" per the liberal delusion as well as a representation of those that engage in homosexual anal sodomy. The unicorn represents "the system" all harmless, cute, and benevolent, and the skittles represent the free shit that people think they are owed merely because they have a pulse.

Nuttin wrong wit bein first.  Jus say somethin useful while ur at it.

After the coup, we fight.

Kayman's picture

I think as punishment for the coup, the perpetraitors (sp) need to be jailed in co-ed pairs. Bill and Hiliary same cel. Kristol and Pelosi, McCain and Maxine, Graham and Schumer, etc.

UmbilicalMosqueSweeper's picture

Put them all in the same cell, then videotape them scratching out each other's eyes.

Each pair in a glass cage with a honey badger and a hornet's nest the size of a rugby ball -on PPV of course.

David Brock would never survive in a jail cell without a cock to suck on. LOL

Good quote.
For the record, Leakers are involved in Sedition which is a crime - including the reporters. They are the opposite of a whistleblower.

"Whistleblowing" REVEALS a crime to someone in power to correct it.

Too humane and painless.

I prefer to go back further in time and use the last great empire as an example.

Go Roman.

So, if you want to leak GOV/Pres confidential info, just leak it to Lib papers and no one gets in trouble.?.

Interesting. I would imagine there's some sort of law against this practice. If anything, the reporters and editors should be charged with something.

If not, can we get some leaked info from Obama's days in the Brown Palace??

StarGate's picture

Sedition is the crime.
DOJ would prove the goal of the Leaks is to attack the govt, to weaken or to destroy, not to inform the people.

Because good men are doing nothing.

Didn't he recently recover from a heart attack?

...and all he had to do was REALLY side with the PEOPLE instead of trying to placate his money masters...remember sheldon adelson at his inauguaration, the self described "king jew" who spent millions bankrolling rubio and gingrich against why would he be invited?

It's like when an NFL team wins the Super Bowl. The Jew that owns them comes down to the field to smile and gloat.

Most of the DIM wits have been fairly quite of late.........


Is the truth about to be exposed, bit by little bit  ????? 

Or will it be a case of impeaching the honorably elected President

on the dishororable grounds of Russian nonsense and eating two scoops of ice cream  ?

DIMS dont care for sure.

StarGate's picture

Your link is important story.
Both Sekulow of ACLJ and Fitton of "Judicial Watch" have a hot batch of emails related to the Lynch-Clinton Phoenix fix of Hillary "matter" on the tarmac, and are covering the story on radio and youtube.

Emails now evidence Obama WH, DOJ, FBI (Comey) conspired with this tarmac meeting in which it appears Clinton made THE DEAL with AG Lynch not to prosecute Hillary so she could be Prez.

More emails arrive Friday.

What happens next? We burn the muthafucker down

Gert_B_Frobe's picture

Well, at least all the SJW, snowflakes, BLM, etc. will be purged. So we got that goin' for us.

We won't waste time on the piss ants. The mobs will go straight to the swamp and remove the creatures

Scuba Steve's picture

Pissants become creatures, stomp'em at every target of opportunity.

Barney Fife's picture

Plus they will be lightly armed targets of opportunity so why pass up the chance to cleanse the poitical body of this cancer, right? 

The Wizard's picture

All that has to happen is a majority of the military side with people who wish to drain the swamp. If they don't the swamp will use the military, they now control, to keep the people enslaved.

BarkingCat's picture

You think that the same military that blindy follows orders and wages illegal wars will stand against the government ???


Last time the military (not national guard) was called out domestically was during the Bonus Army protest.

How did the US Army handle that situation???


If you want to look at national guard, you have Kent State and New Orleans unconstitutional house searches and firearms seizures after hurricane Katrina.


The military will follow orders and to be perfectly honest, I would have too, when I was in. Wisdom comes with age (unfortunately for far too few).

StarGate's picture

Under martial law the military IS the govt. DJT got the approval of many top Genls and Admirals before he was elected then put military men in his cabinet. Only the financial wizards he hired are not military. The wizards are to redesign Economy after crash.

Check the wiki bios.
Air Force

If Trump is overthrown Military will move into WH then arrest those involved in sedition starting with Mueller, Comey and Obama.

Even Sessions is former military.
Captain Sessions US Army.
They all know the drill.
Hillary can be court martialed very quickly.

Why do you think the WH Chief of Staff is now called
They can see the set up of Sedition by Mueller, WaPo, NYT, Obama etc.
They are ready, they answer to the US Constitution.

I suspect that things will go kinetic.

The targets will no longer be made of paper.

Load up on cheap ammo and camo while you can.

I really would not be surprised to learn that good men were taking note, making plans, and creating an actionable 'list' for when the time comes to throw off the yoke of tyranny.

The_Juggernaut's picture

I don't understand how none of these journalists have been stomped by outraged patriots.

HRClinton's picture

It would be 'Unpatriotic' of them to "break the law".

Something to do with Prison Rape I think.

FORD_FIESTA's picture

Why cannot an Oathkeeper,,,,,go visit the Reporter at home, when said Reporter is with his Family, and have a "VERY STRONG" chat with him in the Garage as to who his source is?    Are the all, just armchair Warriors.......

Why not take the real fight to them and stop this Baby shit?

What about all the Military Officers who took an oath? ARE THEY ALL COWARDS ?????


I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed



ViejoVerde's picture

Unfotunately, oathmakers are not oathkeepers. If they were, there would already be a military coup to stop the leftist insanity...

BarkingCat's picture

Did the remove "legal" from that oath?

It was the word that came directly before "orders".

runswithscissors's picture

They will be...its just when we do stomp them we won't be doing no time for the pernanent stompin

It's OK.  We're taking care of it.
