Banana Republic America: Coups, Coups, Everyone’s Talking Coups

Thomas Edsall of the New York Times wrote a column (2 October 2019) presenting and endorsing the paranoid projections of degreed and tenured leftists who accuse President Donald Trump of intending a “coup” in the form of refusing to leave office if he loses the next election. Hadding Scott explains why the accusation is sadly unjustified.

Trump Not Alone in his Assessment

ON TUESDAY 1 October 2019 President Trump made a post on Twitter to the effect that the movement to impeach him amounted to a coup. Trump’s enemies are acting as if this were some kind of crazy talk, but Trump is far from alone in that opinion. Even some of his enemies have been using that word to characterize the efforts to undermine or terminate his presidency, for more than a year.

Listen to me discuss this on the Cantwell program:


24 August 2018, Michael Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency:

I think impeachment would be a bad idea. If President Trump is somehow forced to leave office before the end of his first term, one-third of America will believe it was a soft coup….

5 September 2018, David A Graham, The Atlantic, discusses Bob Woodward’s book Fear, and an anti-Trump op-ed written anonymously (probably by Jon Lerner) for the New York Times:

… the actions described in the book and in the op-ed are extremely worrying, and amount to a soft coup against the president.

6 September 2018, Chuck Todd:

There is either a soft coup underway or the president is unfit for office.

The point of the concern about Trump’s use of the word coup, and his comments in 2016 about electoral irregularities, is that if the electoral process is now being voided by a “coup” or if the elections themselves are crooked, then the system is already dead and there can no longer be any moral argument for respecting the Constitution and not simply seizing power. Michael Hayden warned against trying to remove Trump from office precisely because it would induce “one-third of America” that currently respects the Constitution to begin thinking outside of the Constitutionalist box (as has been for decades the exclusive prerogative of the anti-White left, especially in the form of crooked rulings by courts). The fear is that the White majority, struggling against reduction to minority status, may cease fighting with one arm tied behind its back.

We have been headed in this direction for some years now. See my article from 2012, “Welcome to the Banana Republic.”

This godforsaken country has been over for a looooong time. This stuff is not recent at all! The ZOG is in full control and will remain to be for many years to come.

Hadding, I remember that this Thomas Edsall pen-for-hire fellow interviewed me about something 15-20 years ago, ingratiating himself to me to show how “fair & balanced ” he was. He was the house political reporter for The Washington Post at the time. Of course when his report appeared it was your typical anti-White hit piece. I was more naive then. Here’s a report about Edsall’s fascination with Trump and racial demographics from four years ago, before Trump was elected: Trump and his political and media enemies aside, soft coups are very real and not always against governments. The National Alliance has successfully fought off three coups in the past five years that used civil suits — what I’ve called judicial coup attempts or lawfare (the portmanteau combination of law… Read more »

No doubt about it we are under a coup by the non white party democrats. Even some lame stream conservatives are wondering out loud that an impeachment can happen of any Republican president in particular if Democrats run the House of reps. The fact the Jews media will always back democrats gives further strength to the point. Then there are always enough bitter Republican traitors like Mitt Romney and others to convict. On top of that the Jews media will promote polls calling for removal. We have reached wrestling status. Staged. Throw in anti White social media who for example promote the anti White racist singer Rianna who has been on a social media tear of ” her people” and promoting the half black weirdo knee taker Colin Kapernick as… Read more »
