Washington is rattled to the core this morning after comments made by a Defense Department official under the Obama administration has raised new tensions. The official during the socialist reign of the last president, has made several threatening remarks in public hinting that the specter of a military coup to remove President Donald Trump from power is a “Clear and present danger to the security of the United States”.
In fact, they have gone so far as to write an editorial for the publication, Foreign Policy, in which senior Pentagon policy official Rosa Brooks publicly suggested a military insurrection against the Trump administration may be the only option to oust one of the most divisive presidents in American history. In the article she calmly states: “Donald Trump’s first week as president has made it all too clear: Yes, he is as crazy as everyone feared.”
Ms. Brooks then went on to write. “The possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”
For the first time in her career in public service, including three years as senior counselor to the Pentagon’s policy chief from 2009 to 2011, “I can imagine plausible scenarios in which senior military officials might simply tell the president: ‘No, sir. We’re not doing that.’” At which point I am certain, the Obama supporters would be informed that their services were no longer needed and they were free to resign their posts. Most Americans are unaware that during Obama’s eight years in office, he literally purged dozens of high ranking personnel from our military ranks. Anyone that did not agree with his policies was quickly kicked out the door.
This new editorial by Ms. Brooks‘ comes as a recent poll by Public Policy Polling group found that 40 percent of registered voters support Mr. Trump’s impeachment. Now that may sound like a lot to many people, but the fact that was never reported to America is that at any given point in time over the last 8 years, between 31 and 58 percent of Americans supported the impeachment of Barrack Obama on grounds of Treason.
In fact, the liberal entity known as Public Policy Polling Group said Thursday: “Donald Trump’s making history once again with a sizable share of voters already wanting to impeach him, and a majority of voters wishing they could have Barack Obama back,” according to the groups President Dean Debnam.
Meanwhile, in her editorial, Ms. Brooks noted that Mr. Trump’s “thin-skinned, erratic, and unconstrained” approach to defense matters of defense could put top U.S. military leaders in a position where they would be forced to execute orders that may be “dangerously unhinged” from a basic understanding of national security. “The prospect of American military leaders responding to a presidential order with open defiance is frightening — but so, too, is the prospect of military obedience to an insane order,” Ms. Brooks wrote. “After all, military officers swear to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, not the president,” she added.
Of course in the interest of fairness, it should be noted that the remarks made by Ms. Brooks come from a devoted socialist that was a radical supporter of the worst president in American History, and the story that she wrote is called an Op-Ed for a reason. Op-Ed stands for “Opinion Editorial” meaning that the thoughts contained in it are the writers opinion and any resemblance to actual fact is often merely coincidental. Personally, I have no doubt that in the weeks and months ahead we will be seeing a lot of persons being weeded out of our government because they fail to follow the orders of the people above them. I can only hope that one of them is in fact, Ms. Brooks.
