Former Virginia State Senator Colonel Richard H. Black (USA ret.) is raising the alarm: a military coup is being prepared by General Mattis and others as a "Plan B" of the globalist enemies of President Donald Trump, with "Plan A" being to steal the election.

Col. Black's initial warning, given at a Schiller Institute conference on September 5th, can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVXX8WIJpKk. The transcript is available here: https://larouchepub.com/eiw/public/2020/2020_30-39/2020-37/28-30_4737.pdf.

Colonel Black will take your questions regarding the coup, his experience in Combat, his experience as a Senator and other questions. He's scheduled to speak for an hour.

(But if we're extra nice, I hope we can convince him to come back and take more questions!)

Biography:

Colonel Black is a decorated marine corps veteran.

He enlisted in the Marines in 1963. By age 21, and was among the Marines’ youngest aircraft carrier-qualified pilots. He flew 269 combat helicopter missions in Vietnam.

Colonel Black left the Marines to attend the University of Florida. He graduated with honors from the School of Business in 1973 and earned a law degree in 1976. He practiced law in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, before accepting a commission as a Major in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG).

Black headed the Army’s Criminal Law Division at the Pentagon. He developed Executive Orders for the President’s signature, and laws that were enacted by Congress. He advised senior government officials on issues of national significance. He testified before the U.S. Congress, representing the U.S. Army, on four occasions.

Colonel Black was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in February 1998 and served 8 years total . Black was elected to serve in the Virginia State Senate on November 8, 2011 and proudly served the citizens of Virginia from 2012-2020

In 2015, Black was named an "enemy of ISIS" by ISIS:

Some of what Mr. Black has said before on the coup.

• Known conversations between then Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis, USMC (ret.) and then Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, in which Mattis told Coats the time would come for them to “take collective action” against Trump.

• A blatant call for a military coup in an open letter to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, by retired Colonels John Nagl and Paul Yingling on the website Defense One.

• The open refusal of generals around Defense Secretary Mark Esper to carry out Trump’s directives to withdraw troops overseas, or keep order in American cities.

• Retired senior officers violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice in their public remarks about the President.

• An article rehearsing a military coup in outrageous detail in an Australian-British blog, The Conversation.

The most important thing we can do right now is to shine the spotlight on what is going on in the Pentagon, how absolutely poisonous the atmosphere has become

Wouldn’t happen. Even in a scenario where America is embroiled in domestic turmoil, there are more guns than people in this country, and the one thing that would unite people is an invasion of a foreign enemy.

This is the closest answer in the thread. So many PMC assholes are nothing but closeted deepstate warhawks with no loyalty to anything but money. They'd gladly sell out their own mothers if it meant a new pair of ray-bans and some hair gel.

Don't get me wrong, there are some good guys who went PMC for the stability and to make a higher paying career out of it... But most of them have no morality, no loyalty to anything, and no backbone. They'd throw up a white flag at the very hint of real confrontation, too, just to save their own skin.

They're only willing to play the game so long as the air condition is running, and so long as the odds are stacked incredibly in their favor.

Muffinman 19 points ago +20 / -1

That could happen. But we still have nukes as well, or whoever is in control of the areas that the silos are in.... They would probably fund one side of the fight, though.

If the US collapses, though, I dont think we have to worry about China and Russia, at least initially.

I think the day the US falls, China will then invade SE Asia, Japan, Korea, etc... Russia will invade Ukraine, the Caucasus, and Eastern Europe... both of them want to expand their regional influence.

This is interesting. I just assumed that if the US fell that China would invade the US but your answer makes much more sense.

11
CuomoisaMassMurderer 11 points ago +11 / -0

This is not what's happening. The other 4 of the 5 eyes have banded together to form a superpower. US would only fall to OWG (One World Government) the possibility for this to displace our upcoming election in November is very real. You could say it started in January. You could say it started in June 2015.

They stopped being covert. They openly admit they want OWG. This election really is about does the US continue as a sovereign Nation or not, and that ballot may be taken by bodybags. Part of me thinks that waiting for the election is a bad idea, except everyone expects us to win on election night. Fraudulent mail-in ballots after that shouldn't count. The primary sentiment is to wait until then, so maybe that's not a horrible idea.

The entire world could not engage and defeat the US navy in open seas. Notwithstanding the outrageous, almost comical coordination and communication challenges such a betrayal team-up would entail, challenges none of the NWO OpFor navies are in any position to overcome. Royal Navy submarines are the only actual threat; everything else is irrelevant (high-quality short-range Scandinavian diesel subs) or as good as already on the ocean floor.

And with a GDP smaller than just one of our large states, california, if we go under so do they.

Hell, if the US were to just disappear one day the whole planet would go under for about a decade if not worse. I mean, I've talked to economists about this stuff and they said even if just South Korea were to suddenly go poof, the whole planet would be cast into a global recession the likes of which we hadn't seen in a very long time...

4
Thrasymachus 4 points ago +4 / -0

In essence, far, far too much of our high-tech economy is wildly spread across international markets and enormous production networks that are in serious tension with pre-existing geopolitical relationships.

Also, if the US were to disappear, the world would be in deep shit for far more than a decade. I'd say a century, given the likely wars (that could easily go nuclear) that would erupt.

Russia would endure, since they are broke enough to be less reliant on interconnected markets, but nuclear enough to defeat invasion. The culture of toughing out very hard times is also hardly dead in Russia; it is merely dormant. I suspect the population could transition to "and then things got worse" living quicker than we think.

Yea, without team america world police to keep the rest of the planet in check, I'd say china would hardcore make a play for big dog #1 within a week if not a day or two. Once they do that the middle east would pretty much implode into itself with all the little factions trying to take over, and the sauds trying to get the biggest piece of the pie.

The EU would prolly break up in about 2 years and I wouldn't be surprised if hitler 2.0 rose to power in germany again cause why not, ha!

The US pulls a lot of dirty shit behind closed doors and we all know it, but we also keep the idiots and maddogs in line. Without us until the planet can unite as one, it will collapse. I guess r/politics would say I'm arrogant to say that but it's pretty damn true when you look at everything...

Well, primarily because we'd plaster their entire urban population into bat-flavored glass. Russia, on the other hand, has no interest in hegemony. They're entirely broke and while their military procurement pipeline is the second best in the world (in a context where third place is distant and pathetic, and just making the list at all required centuries of military heritage and technological development), they haven't the manpower or the money to use it for anything but highly selective small-scale international engagements (like Syria or possibly Armenia in, oh, say about a week).

Russia would be on our side, believe it or not, for some reasons that should be obvious and for some that may not be. Russia wants a larger global presence but they don't want to be #1 on the world chess board. China wants to be number 1 while Russia understand's it's safer and better long term to be behind the throne. Heavy is the head and etc. We are nationalist and want to take a step back from the global stage. We want to focus inward. We don't want to be the world police. Russia would back us officially for these reasons.

PamelaCincinnatus 3 points ago +3 / -0

This. Russians are subtle politicians. So are Asians. And Putin was head of the KGB. He is not an easy man to read. That said, he is an intelligent man, which I think tends to make him reasonable, and he is running a nation which has a lot more in common with America culturally than Europe today. That is simply because Russians go to church, and so do many Americans. Europeans, by and large, do not. Russia has shaken off communism, and most Americans don't want it, but Europeans are still seeing how far into that lake they can swim.

Putin has had all his political opponents killed. I'd like to meet him in a dark alley, but since his incident with a snowplow on a bridge other domestic enemies have taken priority. Sadly this now includes General faggot warrior monk.

In no way is Putin a "good guy," but he may well be in favor of US Nationalism, and that's obviously what you mean.

You estimate the Navy at that low? Shit. I'm a Navy vet and hearing that hurts, but it also sounds likely. I got the boot in 2011 after 4 years of being in due to Obama's massive down sizing at the time, but the attitude I saw becoming prevalent in 2011 was already very different from just 2 years earlier.

I recall a mandatory fun day (spoiler, it wasn't fun), in which the training command halted training for 1 day so we could do various "fun" activities outside in our horrible PT uniforms. 1 involved us sitting in a field like a bunch of kids at an elementary school assembly while some airhead high school girl talked to us about some stupid vapid shit as if she was a bastion of wisdom. You think any sailors give a damn what some high schooler has to say? Complete waste of time. While that speech was annoying, there was one "activity" which was far more sinister.

It was the chiefs activity. Their contribution on this day was to speak much more formally about the Navy's goals at large and our parts in it. The chiefs then proceeded to break down how the Navy was very concerned with having the demographics of the Navy match the demographics of the country. They mentioned how the various percent that each ethnic group made up in the country and how it was the Navy's goal have a force that was made up of people that matched those numbers. They then went on to say that it wasn't just about matching those numbers in the Navy, but among all the ranks in the Navy too.

I could hardly believe what I was hearing. I thought the military was supposed to at least try and be a meritocracy and take only the best people for the job, but here we were being told that your race and sex are what mattered most to being in the Navy and for your potential promotions.

It didn't take long for me to go from being pissed about them telling me that I was getting kicked out due to the needs of the Navy to welcoming leaving it.

There are a shitload of us vets who know how to do things and you can be sure we would be at the National Guard armories very quickly.

The pilots, grunts, tanks, artillery, comms vets didn't just forget how to do those things. Many, many of us spent years in the desert in various combat environments and we are mentally hardened to withstand harsh conditions and do what it takes to get the jobs done.

RealRichardBlack [S] 52 points ago +53 / -1

That is an excellent question!

It is my understanding that there is a two-tiered military. There are officers influenced by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, who were moved forward by those administrations. As a consequence, you have some very liberal military officers whose mindset is not of honor, discipline, morality, and constitutional government. Rather, it is a mindset of simple opportunism. This is at the four-star level.

And then you have the rank and file. I went from being a private to being the chief of the Criminal Law division at the Pentagon, with the rank of colonel. I've swept floors and cleaned latrines. I've been there.

The rank and file are, by and large, supportive of the President. As Trump has said, most of the soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen are in support of him, but the ones who make money off of launching wars aren't.

Just speaking out about this makes it less possible.

In 2017, there was an article in The Conversation, called "Thinking the Unthinkable: Could There Be a Military Coup in the US?" It includes thoughts from high levels in the government about how the US Cyber Command could be used to launch a simulated foreign attack. This is why software was developed to be able to make it appear that a cyber attack was launched from any country of the CIA's choice.

They say that communications must be shut down: Twitter must be locked down to prevent the President from speaking to his base. A concocted "cyber attack" could be used as the excuse to deploy the troops, and bring them onto the streets.

Coups are rather precarious by their nature.

The more we publicize the threat of military overthrow of the government, included in such journals as Defense One, the more we can reduce the threat.

Remember: there are three branches of government, which each have a role in contested elections. But the military has absolutely no role whatsoever in the electoral process! It must stand completely to the side, ready to defend the country, but not involved in the election itself.

RealRichardBlack [S] 146 points ago +146 / -0

I think you have some good ideas there. I'd say "all of the above." But I think it's very important that Americans begin to speak out, in this period of massive racism that has swept our nation -- this racial hatred and violence based solely on the color of their skin is very dangerous. It's like the era of the French or Bolshevik Revolutions, where things didn't have to make sense. It was just raw power.

Push back. Push back verbally. Push back on the internet, with your friends.

I think one of the most troubling things over the past six months has been the collapse of leadership across the United States. When you consider elected officials, police officials, who are joining protests and kneeling. Let me tell you: I'm a Christian, and I only kneel before Jesus Christ, but not for any man.

There's a woman who was forced to kneel and explain that (as a waitress!) she benefitted from white privilege. What sort of great privilege does a waitress have?

If we have officials who are kneeling with mobs, they must be kicked out of office.

Many of these BLM people are wealthy, from gated communities and the like, and want to show that they have solidarity with their brothers of color, and go to those communities to smash windows, to burn, and to loot!

People must stand up and say "that's wrong!" Look at the monuments. That's what ISIS did; that's what the Taliban did with a 4000-year-old monument of the Buddha. I'm a Christian, but not a Buddhist, but I would have loved to have seen that monument, made by dedicated human beings 2000 years before Christ. This is characteristic of every dictatorship — a destruction of historical monuments.

We need to push back, and I don't mean that in a physical way at this point, but intellectual push back? Yes, you need to do that.

RealRichardBlack [S] 61 points ago +61 / -0

I think the first thing is to be alert to the fact that there seems to be some serious discussion about this. That's what we're talking about today.

The next thing is that if the military is called up -- I'm not talking about somehow confronting our troops with violence, because these are our guys -- then this would be a time to lay down whatever you're doing, and pour into Washington DC and just have the biggest street-clogging demonstration you've ever seen. So we need to be prepared for that.

I don't want to overstate the case -- I think this has been put in place as a sort of Plan B -- but we have seen reference to it. We've seen high level Democrat officials talking about "leaving it up to the military" to sort things out. No, under our Constitution, the military has NO role.

So I think we have to be ready to have people pouring into Washington DC, perhaps 1 Million people, shut down the whole city so that no one could move -- so that no one could move troops. And I think that would be the right thing to do.

15
Casualize 15 points ago +16 / -1

The APX line is where a lot of public safety is headed. The most common would be the APX 6000(handheld) / 6500(vehicle/base stations). The next brand of radios I'd recommend is Harris, primarily due to the abundance of them utilized in the military. I don't remember their models very well, and I know their best radios are the 30W ones, as their handhelds weren't the greatest.

If you're looking to get into radio operation and specs then check your local community colleges for the GROL certifications. I obtained mine from a military hosted course at one.

Another route which could be harder to attain due to costs and if you're a business account or not is training straight through Motorola. They offer all sorts of courses that break down trunking systems and radio interactions.

It's a little difficult for me to give any more ways than this because I started in the radio field in the military and was able to get a wider access to resources because of it.

How can I buy the APX6000 and why is it so expensive? I checked but all the vendors want you to ask for a quote. What's so special about it? Are there any cheaper, easy to get alternatives?

2
Casualize 2 points ago +2 / -0

It's expensive because of the Motorola tax. IMO they charge a bit much, however I took part in testing their radios and they are indeed rugged as hell and are extremely reliable. Vendors generally have a Motorola sales rep they go through to obtain quotes, if they want you to get a quote you will need to go through the sales rep. The reason for the quote is because of all the ancillary features the radio is capable of.

The APX 6k I wouldn't say is special, but it is capable of a lot more than just 2 way radio traffic. It can GPS locate, utilize BT connections including beacon features to locate nearby radios, capable of over the air/wifi programming, etc.

There's always a cheaper alternative, it really comes down to what you want a radio for. In given situation of this thread, you could easily get an XTS line for a couple hundred or less like the XTS 2500 or XTS 5000. Since realistically all you'd need is 2 way radio traffic.

Trumptastic88 3 points ago +3 / -0

Baofeng is Chinese and its a cheap entryway into being a HAM. My baofengs work fine for what I need them to. For non Chinese brands go with the following:

Yaesu.

Icom.

Kenwood.

FCC GMRS licence is $70, no exam and covers entire family.

A repeater capable radio is the best choice for wide area coverage. Not all radios are capable of being programmed for repeater usage. Good examples to avoid are cheap GMRS/FRS consumer bubble pack handheld radios and Midland mobile radios.

I'm not saying that isn't a good thing for people to know, but all of our communications will be known and broadcast over the airwaves. How are we supposed to encrypt HAM radio transmissions?

In all the past modern wars, secrecy and encryption (think Enigma in WW2) was a huge factor in determining who won. The D-Day invasion worked because the Germans thought we were landing on a different beach.

Again, I'm not dismissing what your saying entirely, but it's like the tech equivalent of Ethiopians vs. British soldiers. Spears vs rifles.

Military uses spread spectrum frequency hopping tech. The radios use encryption and jump around to different frequencies. 2 radios in comms jump around at the same time. Motorola makes a biz radio that does something similar for about $50 each used. They are good for about a mile. Mil radios work much better. Even if you land on a used frequency it’s on to the next one a millisecond later. Outside NSA tech nobody is listening. You would need the frequency hopping order and the encryption key.

You’re supposed to have a well regulated militia already. Most people missed the part in the constitution where it says that that’s necessary to the security of a free state

15
Magus_Strife 15 points ago +17 / -2

Again, I agree, but this kind of reinforces my point. How have you seen basically every militia covered by the media and politicians? The militia in New Mexico that was present at the statue destruction where that dude shot some Antifa dillhole in self-defense... that militia was accused of all manner of awful things universally when the shooter wasn't even part of the militia and the militia detained the shooter, controlled the crowd, and administered first aid until authorities could.

If we join a militia, we are put on a watch list, and if there is a coup or revolution, they go after us first because we painted a huge target on our backs. They've made that apparent. We cannot organize in any reasonable way as is guaranteed in the Constitution. And that's what I'm asking; given all this, how do we organize and still stand a chance in a worst case scenario?

CuomoisaMassMurderer 3 points ago +3 / -0

Typically there's a 10:1 ratio, meaning maybe 30 in your area code. Or maybe you found a militia more local than that. Worth looking into, who knows where they are until you do? The nice thing is nation wide comms

“Their spy program is massive,” said Olson. “They aggressively mine social media and look for Chinese-Americans who have affection for Mother China.” That seems to be the case with NYPD Officer Baimadajie Angwang. A nationalized US citizen of Tibetan descent, he was arrested on Monday and revealed as an alleged spy for China. A former Marine, US Army Reserve staff sergeant and a 2018 “Cop of the Month,” the 33-year-old faces charges including unlawfully acting as an agent of a foreign government, wire fraud and making false statements.

We have Chinese spies coming out of our ears.

If they try a military coup, we're in a very dangerous position where we'd immediately be playing defense and the media and all establishments are pro-coup, shouting down the Constitution itself.

I mean, is anyone in DC at all loyal to the POTUS and Constitution? When you have Generals openly defying POTUS, that's already treason...and nothing gets done?

Soooo unless there's a plan to stop this in the next 30 days, it's looking like we get the government our grandparents and parents left for us - Swamp-America.

Seems to me the MSM has been running the "dictator" angle specifically so that Trump can't do anything. Nobody alive has seen a sitting POTUS have Generals or officials charged with Treason. People would totally buy the MSM narrative, hook line and sinker. They'll tell people to go out and kill conservsatives with rocks and they'll obey.

I'm a resident black-pilled guy who thinks too much. Sorry.

I just don't see a scenario where Trump wins and all goes back to 2016 base-line. With COVID and what the Governor's did, and election theft looming, and a military coup looming if that fails, and at BEST continued Antifa/BLM/Communist insurrection post-election, I don't see how America has any sense of normalcy again. This is what happens when America votes their conscience and the deep state has no way around it - they take it all down. They flip the chess board because they got checked.

Like I said, unless there is a Biblical-level plan by the Trump admin that gets pulled off within the next 30 days and redpills the world, we're looking at shitty times.

IMO, they'll just steal the election and we'll be stuck with POTUS Kamala Harris after the first year, and the continued long march to communism. China unchecked and all. Hell, they'll probably reward China.

RealRichardBlack [S] 51 points ago +51 / -0

When we talk about the Deep State, there are powerful elements to it — in the military, in agencies, in the legislative branch. And you have foreign lobbying groups that spend millions and millions of dollars to influence the votes of people in Congress.

One of the most poisonous things at the Pentagon is generals who cycle into think tanks that have the purpose of fostering war, to drive enormous defense profits.

Think about Hunter Biden. Why did we and the British overthrow the government of Ukraine? There were enormous profits made. Consider Hunter Biden, who was installed onto the board of one of the most corrupt institutions in the world, to make a huge salary. This is a guy who couldn't make it a month in the Navy, despite two waivers from his dad.

We are bleeding money from nations we have invaded. We have declared that, in contravention to international law, that we are going to seize the oil from Syria. Why? The people of Syria are being denied medicines, the ability to trade. It's a destruction of the common people of Syria. Why? The Deep State has a commitment to this, to land huge defense contracts and now to steal oil from the Syrian people.

It's astounding to see the level of venom that emerges from the CIA and State Department towards other nations these days. They insist on keeping our troops deployed. They oppose withdrawal, but withdrawal really means bringing troops home.

I've personally experienced these drawdown shell games, and I know how it's done. There are enormous advantages that the generals get from the Deep State.

The Deep State is about networked Professional Technocrats who know "whats best" for the country.

Now when said professionals shift from upholding the Constitution to upholding their ideology, this is where you get the Deep State.

Hello Colonel Black,

Thank you for being here. I have a few questions, if you’d be so kind: 1.

How much of the plot has been set into motion as of right now? 3. What can the people do to counter this coup plot?

Many thanks & God Bless you.

RealRichardBlack [S] 19 points ago +19 / -0

I honestly don't know if there are foreign governments involved in it. There is sometimes a British connection.

I do notice that this one article where what amounts to a war plan was laid out in detail -- the author is Luke Foster Middup, Lecturer in International Relations, University of St Andrews. (https://uk.news.yahoo.com/thinking-unthinkable-could-military-coup-135043797.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAArK-9erZmFrLqYxHGvzpLCpiPd1PpkuhNtCKseZ18cRjRO_EuQLP1ig17ZE8nlnir7Y_MKHJQKX8LKNe2zCIgXXzjWFVC773eXRqPv7mGa4x3clJEtQ7QhwoUV7sxHQTxmX2MU93IRDTzgz6c0-M08NZAe_EX6EepRlCjBa4j93)

He starts out saying, "You know, there was a military upheaval in Algeria in 1958, and without it General De Gaulle would never have come to power..." He's acting as if, you know, if you have a coup, this can be a pretty good things.

He asks, "What stands in the way?" Well, yes, he says, the ingrained respect for the President. And the second major obstacle, he says, is that the military is not subject entirely to one person, in that you have national guard subject to the governors. Meanwhile, he says, the US gun control laws mean that any potential leaders of a military coup would have to deal with the problem of a well-armed citizenry. Well, if you ever wondered why we have a second Amendment. It never had to do with colonists being able to

The reason was to defend ourselves against the return of a tyrannical government -- and your self-defense, of course. Look at what's happening now. How would you like to be living adjacent to a place where mobs are in the streets, lighting fires, beating up women, killing children, and you're not allowed to arm yourself! I built homes in Liberty City, a black community, after the riots, and I walked with a woman who was receiving a house, I remember thinking, "I hope this woman has a gun." I had worked there for six months, and I knew this was a dangerous place. I could only imagine a single mother being totally helpless, sitting alone in a house in that neighborhood.

In any event, I can't tell you whether there are foreign entities involved. although this article was British, I really cant make too much of that. I do believe that the Deep State has tentacles that go all across the globe. If you look at the way that things unfolded with the death of George Floyd. In a Democrat controlled city, Democrat controlled state, and all of a sudden you're having riots in New Zealand? Why do they care? How does that happen?

We have a unitary mass media, with censorship on google, on social media, etc. Part of what got Trump elected the last time was that people had the ability to communicate. The media -- when you talk about a foreign entity -- I don't know who controls it, but it wouldn't surprise me if it came out of London and other places.

There are major figures in this country who are working to destabilize and potentially to overturn the government. George Soros just donated $220 M, almost a quarter of a billion dollars, to BLM and other very active racial groups . And these people are paying people to go out and riot and protest. If you're going to run protests in Portland for four and five months straight, it costs a lot of money to put them up, to give them money to buy their drugs or whatever.

I'm not worried about any foreign country trying to overthrow our government. People say Russia and China, but no, I don't think they are trying to do this. I think it's coming from within the country.

On the LaRouche organization:

There are many very fine people who are with the organization. I agree with the organization on some things, and on other things I don't. When they first lobbied me, a woman came in with 7 issues. I said, "I don't agree on that, I don't agree on that, but when it came to Syria, I totally agree." And when it came to banking, I said "I absolutely agree on separating the investment banking from commercial banking (Glass-Steagall)".

That's how I approach things. I don't attach myself to organizations, I don't get swept up by any organization or any individual. It's about the facts. That's the prosecutor in me.

In regards to the coup, Bongino has talked about former military generals and current military contractors running technology derived from DARPA to run anti-Trump propaganda on the American people. Are you aware of that and is there anything that can be done legally do you think?

And do you think they hate Trump because he is anti-war? Trump has been building the military up with crazy money, so it's not like the MIC hasn't made money. Is actual war that much more profitable that they are so desperate they will tip toe the line of treason?

Well, let me start with the last. President Trump has not fired Mark Esper because we have an election coming up and he doesn't have to throw another unpredictable element in at this point.

If President Trump is reelected, I would hope that he would select someone who shares his vision! Trump made a sweep through six or seven states, and his last stop was Leesburg, VA. They asked me to give the opening speech for Trump. I talked a lot about foreign policy. I said, "Here's a president, he wants to normalize relations with Syria, he wants to pull our troops out, he wants to turn against Al Qaeda." He hasn't been able to do that because of the people in the Deep State. I said, "He wants to get us out of Afghanistan." 19 years later see where we are. He said, "NATO has lost its purpose." He's right -- NATO needs an enemy, they call Russia the enemy. Russia is half our population, its economy is the size of Italy's, and none of its neighbors consider it a threat. Look at Germany, they have two hundred active tanks -- they don't consider Russia a threat!

We keep poking Russia in the eye, and we risk a nuclear war. They have an enormous nuclear force that could destroy Western civilization. They don't want a war, they don't want conflict with us.

Esper has not been strong, nor has he been particularly loyal to the President. Many of these people tend to have sort of a first loyalty to the Deep State. Why do Senators support him? You know, he was put up for nomination, so they said, "OK, the President says to nominate him," so they did. The President has not done a good job of nominating people whose ideas reflect his own. I am hoping that in his second term of office, he will improve on this. He selects nominees who disagree with him, with the exception of the Courts. He listens to the Federalist Society, and they poke him to select good justices, which I think he's done in this case.

I think you're going to see a new Secretary of Defense fairly quickly, and hopefully this selection will be far superior to the one we have right now.

At a meeting of the NY Military Affairs Symposium in New York City on March 29 of last year, Dr. Stephen Cohen, the noted author and professor of Russian history, gave a presentation on his book, entitled “War with Russia? From Putin and Ukraine to Trump”. His presentation that night was entitled: “Why the New Cold War Is More Dangerous Than the One We Survived”. Dr. Cohen, who passed away a few weeks ago, was not a Trump supporter. In fact, his wife and collaborator is the editor of the Nation magazine, which ran many attacks on President Trump

Yet Dr. Cohen had been adamant regarding the danger of war because of the effect of Russiagate in destroying the potential of US and Russian collaboration, a collaboration which President Trump had endorsed during and after his election.

Professor Cohen was asked if he would support an investigation of the conduct of the intelligence agencies today, particularly because of this war danger.

Dr. Cohen gave a very forceful response, and a proposal, which I will quote. He said:

“I think I would more than endorse that idea.How many of you remember the Church Committee? Senator Frank, Church of Idaho, I think, and John Tower, a conservative Republican, headed a committee in the Senate in the 70s that investigated what the intelligence services had been doing. And the findings were shocking. We need, and I mean not abstractly, We need an authoritative, one respected or accepted by all parties that has legitimacy, national inquiry, presumably in the Congress, but there may be another way of doing it to what our intelligence services did to bring down Trump, first as a candidate and then as a president, because they did something. Let us say we hate Trump and we don't care. But if this is a permanent force in our politics, what makes you think you're not going to do it to the Democratic candidate they don't like or some Republican candidate they don't like or anybody? This is a cancer in the system and it needs to be exposed.

21
RealRichardBlack [S] 21 points ago +22 / -1

At the end of the Obama administration, you had a large meeting of top Obama officials including Comey from the FBI, Clapper from National Intelligence, and Brennan from the CIA. And the CIA and DNI issued assessments that said Russia was interfering with our elections.

And I recall Obama ordered the other intelligence agencies to issue their own assessments. Now it's pretty clear he wanted assessments that agreed with CIA and DNI, and in fact, they did. As you know, the Russia collusion issue had been laid in lace by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. They literally forged documents in order to pin false allegations. This gave them access to spy on the Trump campaign using warrants from the secret FISA court, which is basically a rubber stamp for the Deep State. and as a consequence, they managed to tie President Trump up for years and generate an impeachment on the flimsiest of reasons.

And there's a reason they went after General Flynn. He had been the director of military intelligence. He understood the depth of corruption in the CIA and the State Department, and it was said that he intended to conduct an audit of the intelligence agencies, which should have bene done. one of the limits for a Constitutional government like ours -- we the people are sovereign, we're at the top of the pyramid, and the government is subordinate to us. The problem is, most of what the government does is done in secrecy. And how can people ask questions?

Why are we on the side of Al Qaeda in Syria? Aren't' they the people who flew the planes into the twin towers ? But people don't know -- these things are kept secret from the people. And General Flynn had intended to open a lot of this up. I would love it if our budget for secret agencies was slimmed down to about 10% of what it is today. Because most of what they do is NOT to protect us against foreign nations, most of what they do is to deceive Americans and get them to permit this constant state of warfare, death, the financial destruction of America. I think, honestly, that's the bulk of what American intelligence agencies do. It's not to protect us, its to keep us under their thumb. So, yes, I think we need to do a thorough and aggressive investigation of these agencies.

...

Let me volunteer a comment on Julian Assange. I have spoken out about how our government has been supporting Al Qaeda. If it weren't for Julian Assange, I would have been blown off as a conspiracy theorist. I only make those claims with evidence.

Julian Assange has done an enormous service. I hope that when the time comes, the President will pardon him.

If you weren't scared you'd be insane. This is the worst possible case scenario, and we only win that way by every one of use taking as many with us as we can. They run out of people willing to try before we run out of people willing to die. Those efforts would NOT be in vain! Literally every and any opportunity before that is better. I have made my predictions of what those are, and we missed our best opportunity on 3/31, anytime til 5/22. (Or maybe physically removing our governors under citizen's arrest for mass murder is still our best option? I'm not sure that would stop this now) Next up is the election, either right before it, or finding them cheating by bringing in boxes of fraudulent ballots at the last minute, or worse yet is after fraudulent results are announced. Our position weakens horribly by then. Stronger than being outnumbered at our door. Certainly before Inauguration Day if DJT loses, or if they gain 67 seats in the Senate and retain a majority in the House. Really we need a supermajority in both Houses.

tdwinner2020 12 points ago +13 / -1

If Mattis or others attempt a military coup, how do you think it could be defeated?

My take is that such a coup can only really be opposed by Governors who call out their NG and rebel, which might happen, but then again, from there to success repelling the coup would be fraught and unlikely. I'm not sure that there's anything like "3%ers" to actually see a revolt through to success. So if a coup happens, I think it will succeed, and our only chance is to make sure it doesn't happen at all.

CuomoisaMassMurderer 2 points ago +2 / -0

Over 40 Governors have been killing us since March. I don't think they're on our side. OP says we should amass in the streets of DC. Maybe that is to stop such a thing?

1
tdwinner2020 1 point ago +1 / -0

I agree with you. That's the point. There are only two ways to see off the coup: the military rank and file refuse to go along, or we get the plotters to not start the coup. That's it. Once the coup has taken place there will be zero resistance. The governors won't do it. The courts won't do it. The SCOTUS might try, but they won't obey it, they'll pack it, whatever. There might be a citizen revolt by three percenters, but the police will put it down. The 3% will not stop this.

To see this off we need POTUS to take steps, and the military rank and file to not go along with the coup. It is too late for many possible steps to be taken. Maybe he can fire known-disloyal officers, but that won't be enough if there's enough unknown disloyal officers. Maybe he can make sure to surround himself with trustworthy secret service and marshalls personnel, but he can't even hop onto Marine 1 unless the Marines' leadership is trustworthy. He also can't step onto AF1. It's probably easier to see to it that the Marine 1 folks are trustworthy, and we can probably trust AF pilots not to take it out, and this matters because POTUS can't be left stuck at the WH like a sitting duck in the event they manage to overrun it.

The plotters might even stop at killing POTUS if they can't get the rank and file to go along.

I will remind you that typically for any man on the front lines to be effective it takes 10 behind the scenes.

The rank and file love Trump though, and as long as he's their lawful commander in chief, his orders take precedence over the generals. And if they're unsure about the election results and who to obey, they'll obey their consciences, and their consciences will tell them Trump. Vigilance is important, but I trust our boys.
