The following is adapted from “The Coming Coup?” by Michael Anton at American Mind. The links below are to the full article, which you’re encouraged to read cuz I left out a bunch of stuff in the interests of brevity. Below that link are links to the articles Anton included.
Democrats and their ruling class masters are openly talking about staging a coup if Trump wins in November.
It started with the military brass, many former generals, and even Trump’s own SecDef indicating that the military would defy any attempt by him to invoke the Insurrection Act to quell the riots.
Hillary Clinton has declared publicly that Joe Biden should not concede the election “under any circumstances.”
Joe Biden and Al Gore have both said publicly that, if Trump should refuse to leave the White House, the military will “escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”
Two former Army officers wrote an open letter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs claiming Trump is “threatening to remain in office in defiance of our Constitution” and urging the military drag Trump out of the White House on January 20, 2021.
Over the summer, George Soros funded a summit of 100 Democratic grandees, anti-Trump former Republicans, and other ruling class apparatchiks who decided that, if Trump wins, Biden should refuse (a) to concede, (b) pressure states Trump won to send Democrats to the formal Electoral College vote to vote for him, and (c) urge the military to intervene if he refuses to leave the White House.
The results of the Soros summit was leaked to The New York Times.
Streams of stories are appearing proposing that, even if it looks like Trump won, Democrats should insist Biden won, because all the mail-in ballots haven’t been counted.
The complicit media is planning to do what they did with every other anti-Trump effort, which is to preach the Democrats’ Big Lie that for as long as possible. In other words, crank the propaganda to ear-drum shattering decibels, fill the streets of every major city with “mostly peaceful protesters” all demanding Trump leave office.
What can we all do?
First, everything we possibly can to ensure Trump wins by such a landslide that the Left simply can’t pull this off.
Second, support alternative social media sites, because once the Democrat ruling class gives word that the narrative is “Trump lost,” all the president’s social media accounts will be suspended and the MSM will refuse to cover anything he says. He’s going to need a way to talk to us.
Third, raise awareness about the likelihood that the Left will not just continue, but actually escalate all the crap they’ve been doing since November 2016.
Fourth and fifth from CtH: These two aren’t in Anton’s article, but I think they’re important. Arm yourself, stock up on ammo, take lessons, practice, and know your local laws so you can defend your homes and businesses from rioters. And stock up on survival stuff like food, solar batteries, water filters, and the like. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
