The Left Is Setting The Stage
For A Coup If Trump Wins

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 9/12/2020 4:58:23 AM

It’s been hard to miss the steady drumbeat of articles and think-pieces over the past few months about Election Day war games and post-election planning underway on the left, rooted in obsessive fears that President Trump will refuse to accept an electoral loss, triggering a constitutional crisis and maybe even widespread civic unrest, all in a desperate attempt to cling to power. “The Left Secretly Preps for MAGA Violence After Election Day,” reads a recent headline at The Daily Beast. “Is Trump Planning a Coup d’État?” asks another recent piece at The Nation. “Is America in the Early Stages of Armed Insurgency?” frets Slate.

All I can say is, a coup better not happen. People in this country are at the end of our patients with the riots, destruction, crude behavior, etc. A small group of people that are being funnel millions of dollars by corporations, media, actor/actresses, billionaires, foreign countries at the direction of the democrat party will pay the price if they come after us or our president. I pray they are not stupid enough to try something like this but........

Seems unlikely. Despite the saber rattling and bluster, they would have no backing from the military or police, and certainly none from the portion of the country that owns the guns and knows how to use them. They are nothing more than city blowhards flailing their arms around and talking big while backing up.

All this talk of violence should the President be re-elected is a pathetic attempt to suppress the vote. The vast majority of Americans do not want violence and would not allow the demented democrats and their comrades in the media along with these violent prone groups to take from them their right to choose who will lead this country. There are some who would think twice about voting for the President if they believed their cities and towns would turn into Portland or Seattle. These are who this rhetoric is directed. We must never allow intimidation to be used as a reason to make such an important decision. The left are bullies and right now they believe they have the upper hand because of the defiant statement they are making with this violence. However, reasonable Americans are fed up and they will do whatever is necessary to protect their vote. Count on it.

They have been failing completely in an ongoing four-year coup attempt. What makes them think they can accomplish another one in a few months? The American people will finally do that housecleaning that is long overdue and will not hesitate to sweep out all of the trash with our semi-automatic brooms. Maybe we should call their hand and invite them to try.

This article outlines the despiration and insanity of the Left. THEY are correct, no matter what, and NO Trump victory, no matter how vast, can ever be accepted. If Trump had overwhelming victories in popular and Electoral college votes, the Left would declare the outcome was unacceptable because they didn't win. Period. Then they go into war game strategy to fight the awful things Trump might do to enforce his illegal victory; remember, per the dems, ANY Trump victory is illegal. Yet, THEY are the ones rioting. THEY are the ones with the fake Russian meme for 3 years. THEY are ones that ginned up a fraudulent impeachment vote. THEY are the ones that use DEEP STATE resources to manipulate and lie. THEIR media is the one that is relentlessly negative and provides nonstop lies provided by "anonymous" sources. Meanwhile, Trump has gone to extraordinary efforts to stay within the law. The despiration and craziness of the Left is PROOF that Trump is doing the right things and IS effective. The dems KNOW if Trump is in office another 4 years that much of the progressive agenda accomplished in the last few decades will be rolled back and replaced with a Conservative and successful agenda by Trump. The success will be obvious to the voters, especially minorities, who will now KNOW what the American Dream promises and CAN provide. Socialist/Communist dems have nothing to offer to successful Americans. Therefore the only way for the dems to grab power is to destroy the Country, something they appear more and more willing to do by any means possible.

Lately, I have heard the word Insurrection bandied around. I think Trump probably already knows what he will do if there is an uprising against the government if he is re-elected. The President has the right to call up the "Militia". If the BLM and Antifa decided to start RIOTS, I think they are going to meet a whole difference resistance! No more Mayors or governors telling the Police to stand down, don't use any force or anything else to deter the Rioters. No more catch and release by the lawyers. No! This time it will be the Military. They will come prepared to use anything they need to stop the Riot! They will catch and let the Government detain, try and Jail those Rioters. They are in for a Big surprise if they think they are going to continue burning buildings. Not this time, guys, not going to happen!

FTA - "Now, 160 years later, we face what could be a similar crisis. There’s a rich irony in the elite assumption that post-election violence will come from “right-wing militias” or “vigilante groups,” when the last three months of rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists have in some ways been a dress rehearsal for what the left is planning in November. You don’t need to read between the lines to understand this, you just need to take these people at their word." The corporate and billionaire funders of these groups will be rounded up and put away. Don't be stupid, lefties.

ANTIFA, BLM are being armed up at an alarming rate, they are gearing up for war basically. An arms shipment to BLM was recently busted coming from the Chinese. Their tactic is to run around at night, kill as many whites as possible then disperse into the night. Bongino spoke of this recently. You can bet Soros is involved.

FTA; "At that point in the scenario, the nation stopped looking to the media for cues, and waited to see what the military would do.” The media will never LET the nation stop looking for cues and will by design, help the Marxists force the military to force Trump out of office. FTA; "the day after the election, they might contest the results and trigger lengthy litigations and ballot recounts, working in the meantime to come up with enough absentee ballots to put Biden over the edge." The author's been listening to Glenn Beck and his guests for the past three months. FTA; " The left simply cannot imagine an election in which Trump doesn’t win by cheating, " Hellloooo? Can you say transference? The Marxists have only been accusing Trump of doing exactly what they have done or are what they are in the process of doing EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. for four years. FTA"There’s a rich irony in the elite assumption that post-election violence will come from “right-wing militias” or “vigilante groups,” when the last three months of rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists have in some ways been a dress rehearsal for what the left is planning in November." Thanks Captain Obvious. Sure glad no one knew the Marxists were going to do this the day after the fifteenth day of masks and lock downs back in March just like the GOP had no idea how to get their hands on the full Steele dossier over one year after the pdf was downloadable from several sites, starting with ZeroHedge in January, 2017. NOW, the issue isn't the ridiculously obvious Howie Kurtz points about TIP in this article. The issue is where in the hell are the Republicans who all KNOW and have known since March that the Marxists are going to commit sedition out in the open and illegally try to remove Trump from office after he wins? Their whimpers are drowning out the crickets.

As John Paul Jones once said, before he captured the British ship that demanded HIS surrender: "I have not yet begun to fight!". We are quietly sitting here hoping the police are allowed to do their jobs. If they can't --- we will gladly help them out. Like the Minutemen of 1776, we haven't been called to arms ... yet. But if needed, many will respond and be there. The Left will find out what Crazy Horse discovered circa 1877 about "white privilege". You're pushing us too far.

FTA: “Is Trump Planning a Coup d’État?” ... “Is America in the Early Stages of Armed Insurgency?” It is amazing to me how consistent the Democrats are in accusing the Republicans of being guilty of what the Democrats are doing. The Democrats claim that President Trump and the Republicans are responsible for thousands of deaths from Covid-19. Yet it was the Democrats that forced Covid-19 patients into elder care facilities resulting in the deaths of thousands and encouraged people to party in large groups and ignore safety measures suggested by the Trump administration, thus, increasing the spread of Covid-19 infections.

Various articles on this have been circulating here for days. The most detailed was this one. which included their plan. Posted a few days ago at LCom. ""Bipartisan" Washington Insiders Reveal Their Plan For Chaos If Trump Wins The Election” A group of Democratic Party insiders and former Obama and Clinton era officials as well as a cadre of “Never Trump” neoconservative Republicans have spent the past few months conducting simulations and “war games” regarding different 2020 election “doomsday” scenarios. Per several media reports on the group, called the Transition Integrity Project (TIP), they justify these exercises as specifically preparing for a scenario where President Trump loses the 2020 election and refuses to leave office, potentially resulting in a constitutional crisis. However, according to TIP’s own documents, even their simulations involving a “clear win” for Trump in the upcoming election resulted in a constitutional crisis, as they predicted that the Biden campaign would make bold moves aimed at securing the presidency, regardless of the election result. This is particularly troubling given that TIP has considerable ties to the Obama administration, where Biden served as Vice President, as well as several groups that are adamantly pro-Biden in addition to the Biden campaign itself.

As always, the Democrats accuse Republicans of doing what the Democrats are doing. It's called "projection" and they are the poster children of the phenomenon. Gore conceded to Bush and then reneged and spent the next several weeks in court and the next 8 years claiming Bush was not a legitimate President. Hillary fought the 2016 results in court and by trying to subvert the Electoral College and then spent the next 4 years claiming Trump was not a legitimate President. Now they are painting a Trump win as a "red mirage" (i.e. Trump got more votes but if we can extend the voting deadline a few weeks we can always scrape up enough "votes" to give us power.)

If they truly are stupid enough to go all-in on their civil war drama, they forget the leftard media types will be priority targets. Along with the globalist funders behind the scenes such as soros, steyer, bloomberg, et al. That might cool their ardor for a civil insurrection event, if the talking heads and their fellow travelers and funders start getting their hair mussed.

President Trump has never said or done one thing to indicate a reluctance to comply with a peaceful transition of government [which I hope is not necessary!]. This is the steady drumbeat of liberals trying, once again, to fabricate a narrative that has no basis in fact.

It has attempted to take over our country in a coup, revolution (or whatever we want to call it), and should not be allowed to continue its lawlessness (criminal impeachment, riots, arson, murder, lying propaganda media) and intended electoral fraud.

People have to get organized like we did with the Tea Party. This will require competent leadership to step up in a big way like they did on Flight 93.

A year ago if an article had been posted that for the better part of 2020 we would be locked in our homes, not allowed out to shop or socialize, forced upon pain of arrest and a fine to wear a face mask...rioting in cities for months, lawlessness with out end, destruction on an unimaginable scale.... There would have been ENDLESS postings of outrage, fighting back, try me, not in the America I know!!! And yet, here we are. Believe me when I tell you that if there is a coup we will all quietly submit. The proof is in the pudding. We have submitted already. You cannot argue with cold hard facts.

For decades now the left has been convinced that they own the streets and the violence option, because historically they have. We have allowed it. In recent months, we have also seen the impotence of complicit elected officials, the active encouragement of the Democrat party and the restraints placed on law enforcement, who can preserve and protect no one. When that changes, and it is going to, game over.

This is fear porn. The people are against them. They are bleeding support and voters every day. The fires in California are representative of the Green New Deal and one party rule. I have to think that the president has several plans of action when the Democrats launch their coup. In the past, the Dems have kept their plans secret. This time, they are in the open. They want the element of surprise, and this is the opposite. People are sick of them. They are running a clown and a prostitute, with a campaign of chattering media crows.

President Trump’s most senior health officials leaped to his defense against allegations that he mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic, insisting that he based his decisions on the best scientific advice and saved lives. Trump has been under intense pressure ever since it emerged in Bob Woodward’s book Rage that the president knew the virus was airborne and highly contagious, even as he sought to reassure the public that its risk was limited. The result was a slew of claims that he lied to the country and failed to meet the basic responsibilities of his office.

First, it was the United Arab Emirates and Israel making peace. Then it was Serbia and Kosovo agreeing to set aside political disputes to sign an economic deal. And now Bahrain and ­Israel are set to sign a peace treaty. The last month has been a remarkable one for the Biblical injunction to turn swords into plowshares. Most dramatically, the number of Arab countries recognizing Israel’s right to exist has doubled, from two to four, a leap that is reshaping 75 years of Middle East politics before our eyes.

In 2016, as I was preparing to write my “Why Hillary Will Win” piece, I decided to have my able then-assistant, David Byler (now of Washington Post fame), do a bit of research. His job was to look up the share of the electorate that pollsters were anticipating for whites without college degrees and for African Americans. What he found put an end to the piece. It seemed a big bet was being placed on 2012 levels of black turnout occurring in 2016 and, more importantly, that pollsters were badly underestimating turnout for whites without college degrees. In previous years, that hadn’t really mattered – whites with and without college degrees

Biden: From No Campaign to Faux Campaign 6 replies

Biden has gone from no campaigning to faux campaigning. Over the last two weeks, America has gotten a good look at the Biden campaign’s strategy and tactics for the race’s homestretch. They intend to focus primarily on race, while minimizing direct exposure and maximizing their indirect exposure through advertising. President Trump’s law-and-order offensive and polling rebound explain why Biden is abandoning his virtual campaign for at least a vestigial one. On September 4, Rasmussen’s job approval daily tracking poll showed Trump with a 52 percent approval rating. This matched his 2020 high, last hit on February 27, following his Senate impeachment trial acquittal and before coronavirus lockdowns

As perceived security threats mount in Earth's orbit, countries around the world are following the example of the United States and creating their own "space forces." Nine months ago, in December 2019, the U.S. Space Force was born. The new military branch was created with a focus to protect the nation's satellites and other space assets, which are vital to everything from national security to day-to-day communications. Now, countries including France, Canada and Japan are following suit, as leaders from those countries' "space force" analogs said Thursday (Sept. 10) during the 2nd Summit for Space Sustainability, an online event hosted by the nonprofit Secure World Foundation.

Shortly after the network’s chief media correspondent, Brian Stelter, published a book condemning Fox News for a “dangerous distortion of the truth,” evidence emerged that CNN leaders meddled in a congressional race, offered favors to a presidential candidate in exchange for the promise of a TV show in 2016, and tried to coach President Donald Trump’s lawyer on the topic of Stormy Daniels. But by all means, keep complaining about Fox News. That tactic is sure to hurt your competitor’s ratings, right? Without further ado, here’s a round-up of CNN’s scandals.

Woodward has already leaked the book’s juiciest excerpts to the media, such as the the President telling him during an interview on March 19 that he wanted to ‘play down’ the severity of the coronavirus in order to avoid a panic among the American people. This comment has led Trump’s critics to call for his resignation or for him to be impeached a second time. Rage, however, is perhaps more revelatory about its author than its subject. Let’s assume that the critics are right, and that Trump’s decision

"Welcome to Freedom!" exclaims real estate agent Ashley Scott as she surveys the nearly 97 acres of land that she and a group of 19 Black families purchased in August. "I'm hoping that it will be a thriving safe haven for people of color, for Black families in particular," Scott says. The land sits just East of Macon in rural Wilkinson County, Georgia. Scott and her friend, investor and entrepreneur Renee Walters, didn't initially plan on buying a large plot of land, but they had a vision that was clear—to create a safe space for their Black families.

William Shakespeare famously observed that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” One of these players, Joe Biden, is currently trying out for the biggest role of his life. Unfortunately, he’s in danger of bombing the audition. He’s flubbing lines, breaking character, and occasionally forgetting the plot. His rambling, often incoherent speech in front of a supportive audience at a church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on September 3 shows that he’s no longer playing the role of viable presidential candidate. Instead, he’s stumbled into the last scene of Shakespeare’s “strange, eventful history” — “second childishness and mere oblivion.”

ore Americans say former Vice President Joe Biden has the mental clarity to be president versus Donald Trump, according to the latest Fox News poll released Sunday. Despite the Trump campaign and the president himself repeatedly questioning the mental acuity of Biden, a larger percentage of U.S. adults say they believe the Democratic presidential candidate has the traits best suited for the job. A slight majority of likely voters—51 percent—told Fox News they believe Biden, 77, has the "mental soundness" to be president, compared to 47 percent who say the same about Trump, 74.

Left-wing pop star and actress Cher declared President Donald Trump a “mass murderer” and floated death as a punishment in a now-deleted tweet. Cher stated that it is “CALLED MURDER IF YOU MURDER MORE THAN ONE PERSON,” which is apparently a reference to President Trump’s handling of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Indeed, the Moonstruck star has made that same connection in the past.The “Strong Enough” singer wrote: There's A Blame 4 Killing Someone....Its Called "Murder"

Senate Republicans hoping to go on offense this week found themselves instead playing defense once again because of controversial remarks by President Trump — this time to Watergate reporter Bob Woodward. It was a familiar dilemma for GOP senators used to being chased by reporters over their thoughts on Trump’s latest furor, but in this case it came with terrible timing — eight weeks before an election in which the Senate is on the line and as they hoped to call attention to Democrats blocking a coronavirus relief bill Thursday on a procedural motion.

Wheeler said his administration and Oregon’s Legislature are seeking “safer alternatives” to the nonlethal gas.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed on Friday that President Donald Trump’s recent success in securing peace deals in the Middle East was nothing more than “a distraction.”“How much credit do you give the President of the United States for these peace agreements?” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked.“Well, hopefully they won’t—hopefully they will beneficial [sic] to the region,” Pelosi said. “We’ve been waiting for a very long time for the president’s proposal for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement that honored the two state solution. It was coming in two weeks, it was coming in two months, it was coming in six months—it still hasn’t come in any way that has

This year’s presidential election confronts voters with the most consequential choice they have faced in decades, and for many, their lifetimes: between a divisive, authoritarian-leaning incumbent and a seasoned patriot who brings not only five decades of experience, ability and commitment to American values, but also bold ideas at a time of national crisis. Nothing less than the health of our constitutional democracy is at stake. So stark is the contrast between Donald Trump and Joe Biden that we feel compelled to announce our endorsement of the Democratic nominee and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, now, at what is traditionally the beginning of the fall campaign and before

It’s been hard to miss the steady drumbeat of articles and think-pieces over the past few months about Election Day war games and post-election planning underway on the left, rooted in obsessive fears that President Trump will refuse to accept an electoral loss, triggering a constitutional crisis and maybe even widespread civic unrest, all in a desperate attempt to cling to power. “The Left Secretly Preps for MAGA Violence After Election Day,” reads a recent headline at The Daily Beast. “Is Trump Planning a Coup d’État?” asks another recent piece at The Nation. “Is America in the Early Stages of Armed Insurgency?” frets Slate.

Normally, I would spurn the idea of citing an anonymous post that purports to contain inside information on a presidential candidate. But two factors currently weigh on my mind, causing me to make an exception. One is that MSM Trump-haters have no compunction at all over relying exclusively on anonymous sources (snip) But the other factor is more serious and directly relevant to the anonymous post I am about to cite. The Biden campaign clearly is hiding their candidate from exposure to circumstances that might test his mental acuity and vigor on a sustained basis. We now have direct evidence that the campaign has been deceiving the public by using a teleprompter

I woke up in the morning wondering about the dark red rays coming from behind the curtain. While I expected the darkened sky, the degree of darkness and the fact that I couldn’t smell fire surprised me. Northern California fires have become increasingly common over the last decade as a consequence of mismanaging the environment. Native Americans staged controlled burns to safeguard their villages and create favorable hunting conditions. We failed to emulate that practice, and, as even Mother Jones concedes, so much fuel accumulated in the wilderness that megafires began burning year after year.

San Francisco, Calif. -- The Poopalosi protestor live streamed this performance piece from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s residence in the posh Presidio Terrace neighborhood on YouTube. Believe it or not, thanks to District Attorney Chesa Boudin, this act is quasi-legal in San Francisco. When Boudin, a public defender who ran on an anti-police campaign platform, was elected in 2019, he promised not to prosecute so-called “quality of life” crimes, including public urination, defecation and prostitution. Within hours of posting on Friday, Lifes Mavrek, the moniker on YouTube of this Cuban-American vagabond, raised thousands of dollars and generated tens of thousands of views.
