Media: if Trump is elected in the US, a military coup is possible

83
According to publicist James Kirchik, whose article was published on the pages of the Los Angeles Times, a military coup is possible in the United States if elected Donald Trump as president, reports TASS.


"The Americans, considering the recent unsuccessful coup attempt in Turkey, as some kind of exotic foreign policy history“... we should take a pause and think that the prospect of the same instability would not have been unthinkable in our country if Donald Trump had won and became president,” writes a conservative publicist.



"Try to imagine a situation in which Trump would order our military to do something stupid, illegal or irrational ... In this case, our military, who swear to abide by the Constitution and obey the civil chain of command, would have to choose between observing the law and fulfilling a person’s desires, who openly expresses his complete disrespect for him ... They could well choose the first ",
he suggests.

In turn, Republicans who support Trump believe that "rival Hillary is demonstrated" by his rival Hillary Clinton.

But Kierchik is convinced that it is Clinton "who can safely be trusted with nuclear codes." But as far as Trump is concerned, “it must be stopped by the voters before the military has to do it,” the publicist concludes.

      Try to imagine a situation in which Trump would order our military to do something stupid, illegal or irrational ...
      And on the orders of previous presidents, did the US military do everything exceptionally smart, legal or rational?
      Clintonites scare the States with shocks after the election of Trump, and this is good - that means they do not feel confident.

              Who cares who will be?
              Nor will there be any revolution in relations with the Russians.

              There will be the same song with NATO.
              Well, do not disperse the defenders of civilization from Russian barbarians !!! laughing

              Now we are watching shows for American people.
              No more.

              For example, a British woman with great frenzy began to yell at the Russians after sitting in the prime minister's chair.
              Although it seemed much more?

              Work out.
              By and large, they are no different from the Balts or Poles.

                There is a difference. The last decades of the United States were ruled by globalists - Clintonsha is their representative. Trump is a representative of the isolationists and behind him that part of the elite who believes that the globalists built their global world order to the detriment of the United States itself. He is not a loner, and behind him is a serious part of the elite. Can they spank him as the younger Kennedy? Quite. According to the results of the investigation, Zorin Robert Kennedy was most likely killed by his own bodyguard with a shot in the back of the head. And there is some kind of palaces sitting behind it. request Comrade Trump and Trump should have thought about who guards him. belay

                This is how to say, dear)))
                Trump knows how to count money and poses uncomfortable questions such as: - "What are our military doing thousands of kilometers from the United States?", Which implies a possible cut in the Pentagon's expenses, and NATO too, if he comes to the Oval Office.
                Naturally, the "military hawks" may not like such an alignment, and therefore the option of a military coup cannot be ruled out, which is what they are trying to convey to Trump and his supporters.
                Something like this.

                There is a difference.

                Trump has a lot of common sense. Trump is not a lone hero, people are behind him. These people definitely want change. There will be changes. Not for the worse.

        Hardly a coup. If he becomes very across, he will repeat the fate of Kennedy. There is hope for a clash between the opposing parties on the basis of a fake vote, but the probability is not high, although about Turkey, who thought?

        It is believed that in the capital of the world there was a merger of financial capital and industrial. But logic says that this is not possible. Because financial capital is at the top of the food chain and he loves to eat industrialists.

        Assuming that financiers are behind Clinton, it is appropriate to assume that industrialists are behind Trump.

        In my opinion, industry is more material, as opposed to virtual financial.

    By the way, it’s quite possible. In America, there is such a tradition - bring down unwanted presidents. And how many films were shot by Hollywood on how to capture the White House! In general, in some cases it can be considered as instructions for use))) True in those films there is always a happy end, but after all, real life is very different from the movie.
    If Trump is elected - America will be divided into two camps, if Clinton is elected - the world will need to prepare for a third world war. As they say - choose for yourself. In my opinion, Trump is an idiot, but he made his billion! And he was not afraid to go against his party, he simply decided for himself and went forward with a rhinoceros.

    North Americans have a nice feature - they support "their own", this can be learned.
    Clinton has a strong position among special services due to neocons.

    "if Trump is elected in the United States, a military coup is possible"...

    What stupidity ... Not that country, not that people ...
    Snickering, fattening, stupidly believing in its superiority nation ...
    Another nonsense is that "Clinton can be trusted with nuclear codes without fear" ...

    Despite the loud statements of the Amer congressional hawks and generals that they are threatened by Russia and China, I can not believe that they will be able to go on a coup ...

    Well, let's say foolishly - they took this step ... And then?
    To prove the necessity of this step, you need to do something real ... What? Unleash a war with Russia? So it will be an apocalypse, and not two or three hundred coffins will arrive in the states, but much more ... If more will arrive ... You can "arrange" everything at the place of residence ...

    And, despite the fact that the US Armed Forces on paper are much superior to the Russian Armed Forces, it’s real that no one p.p.i.skami (sorry) was measured, and the result for the United States may turn out to be sooooo unpredictable ...

    Yes, it’s understandable, all this is still pre-election articles from different junk slams)
    Let's see how it ends, in principle, Russia does not care, by and large, who their president especially should not change in America’s foreign policy ...

    A military coup in America? I will die of laughter. And what is the argument: "An unsuccessful coup attempt in Turkey, as an exotic foreign policy story, ... you should take a break and think about it," Are they running and trending all the time? And in Turkey, the military does not swear to abide by the constitution? Can the Turks have a mentality that makes them do coups? And in America there is a tradition: one well-aimed shot and ... a guarantee of order

    I see no reason not to trust Trump’s administration if he was fearlessly entrusted to George W. Bush. For medical reasons, he is far superior to Trump in terms of the danger posed by him. But he was a favorite child of the neocons and hardly anyone dared to encroach on him.

    The enemies burned their native hut,
    There was a thermonuclear charge,
    Where should the soldier go now?
    Where to find your home and garden?

    The soldier went to the edge of the funnel
    Although the Geiger counter was popping
    A bottle of moonshine was taken out -
    He commemorated his whole city.

    A soldier stood and lumps in his throat
    Stuck like a sin
    The soldier said, "Meet my city,
    Alone, I survived among all.

    Prepare congratulations to the hero
    The orchestra and my favorite jazz
    Your day, your holiday of return
    I want to celebrate now "

    No one answered the soldier,
    No one met him,
    Radioactive Mortal Wind
    Rocked the yellowing grass.

    "Friends of a friend will come together again
    But do not converge forever to us ... "
    And on the ruins of Kremenchug
    I drank vodka with grief in half.

    He drank, soldier, servant of the people
    And with pain in his heart said:
    "I've been in battles for four years,
    He conquered three continents ... "

    The soldiers were hoppy, the tear was rolling,
    Played a trophy saxophone
    And on his chest shone
    Medal for the city of Washington ...

    Little depends on the president, so if those who rule in the United States need a coup, he will be regardless of what the name of the "talking head" is.

    In turn, Republicans who support Trump believe that "rival Hillary is demonstrated" by his rival Hillary Clinton.
    Two of a Kind. And both on the left foot. A hysterical woman who does not disdain to run her paw into someone else's money, and a clown who doesn’t put a penny on law and society. Horseradish, radish is not sweeter.

    And who was their normal president? Is Bush the Younger? Or Reagan? What are they driving the blizzard? Once upon a time a mapet show. Fed owners rule. Yes, Trump is dangerous for them because of independence. How would he not be close to Kennedy and Hugh Long. And Roosevelt somehow strangely died (friendly relations with Stalin). Nixon was lucky: he survived. But it hurts too independent ...

    Under the laws of most countries, such an article in the media is an incitement to rebellion, however.
