We're in the midst of a coup d'etat

which should be blatantly obvious to everyone. If Trump moves to carry out this coup during the election, the military must stop him and appoint the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, as acting president while all the ballots are counted.

What justifies the military doing this? The oath they all took which in part says, "... and to defend the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." (underline and bold type added) If Trump isn't a domestic enemy of our democracy, then words are meaningless.

3. I am truly terrified.

I feel like he’s lining up all his ducks, and we’re helpless.
We thought we got him with Muller (remember all our smug “It’s Muller Time memes?), we thought the ***** tape, or “bleeding out thru her whatever” would have got him, we thought his blatant blackmail of the Ukraine would have got him, the kids in cages, etc. he is truly the Teflon Don. I feel like this is another one of those things that he’s going to get away with, and it will end our democracy.

4. You are right. He is telling exactly what he is going to do. He must be impeached again

We cannot just let this "play out". He is threatening the country

9. Trump is planning to win the election by not counting votes, If he is successful he will "win".

Not by force but by attorneys. How are you going to call out the military for that?

23. Look I'm as worried as anybody but if Trump cooks the books, whose is going to call it a coup and call out the military?

We're in deep shit, the person in power knows he can't win a fair vote and is doing EVERYTHING to remain in power. Even trying to get the state legislatures in swing states to insert Trump electors to the Electoral College even if he loses the vote in that state.

So even if we win the popular vote and the Electoral college, he will try to change the Electoral College voters after the election.

Who will decide? The Trump Supreme court?

11. What are your plans?

If you believe that what you say is a real possibility, then you already have well thought out plans in place. My guess is that you've already stocked up on guns, ammo, food and other supplies. And you also have all the local crazy Trump supporters in your area identified.

If you haven't done any of the above, then you don't think there will be a coup.

15. This seems pretty nonsensical.

Are you saying you can't have a real belief that a republican coup is underway unless you have developed a rational, all encompassing response plan? Because I believe the coup is underway and I don't know how it will play out. I did buy guns earlier this year and live in a heavily red area of the state. I have no idea how this country looks or works if it's successful. Coups happen, whether people are prepared or not. Some people recognize it, some don't. But to say you don't really believe something because you don't have a plan is flawed.

13. Trump is far too stupid to be doing this on his own. I think the far right has been planning this even before Bill Clinton was elected. That was when Rush Limbaugh and Fox News started their
propaganda machine. They demonized Hillary Clinton for decades then they saw a useful idiot Trump to carry out their coup.
This goes far above Trump he is just the useful idiot. I think Hillary knew more than she could say when she talked about the
vast far right conspiracy.

in 1992?  :rotf:

19. He's going to lose.

He’s way down in the polls and won’t win.

He just wants to demoralize people so they won’t vote.

And the media wants something to talk about!

Whenever he makes these “we’ll see” kind of statements, that’s all it amounts to.

Last ditch effort to try to hang onto his delusion of being a winner.

24. After the election Trump won't give a damn

He will have no choice but to leave. He will then use whatever power he has left to keep his money and keep him and his family out of jail.

So, Trump and McConnell acting entirely compliant with the US Constitution is a coup. But a military coup removing Trump and appointing Nancy Pelosi "acting president" entirely contrary to the US Constitution is OK with Star Moron Cyanose? ::)  :fuelfire:  :tongue:

They did this in 2004 & 2008 with not believing Bush would leave office should he lose the election or at the end of his term. These kooks can’t even come up with something different this time. One playbook, one play. It’s all they have.

And if Trump is using their own paranoia against them, good! There’s no one who deserves to be treated like dirt or to be played for fools more than liberals.

47. I love it when the military overthrows governments

it always works out so well...

Just for shits and grins, when happens if Trump wins the Electoral vote when Ms Pelosi is the acting President under this military rule? Would her and military leaders be tried for treason?

Thread killer.

I'm waiting for them to declare the Constitution to be unConstitutional because it doesn't spell out how they can get rid of a legally elected President.

Yes DUmbasses. There has been an attempted coup going on in this country.....since the day Candidate Trump came down the escalator to announce his run for the White House.

Oh lord not this shit again.  Do you idiot dummies realize that President Trump is just yanking you and the MSM chain?  He has been doing it for like 5 years now and neither you or your media wing has figured it out.

He is making you look like fools, laughing at you, and you take the bait every time... and are too stupid to realize it.
