Is a military coup even possible?
“Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.” In today’s world of counting coup via website views, click-trolling using inflammatory headlines can be found everywhere. Sound bites from politicians, celebrities, and public figures are routinely taken out of context to produce accurate verbiage but misleading intent. Websites, who will remain nameless, | Read More »
DKOS: A Silent Coup d’état Has Already Happened in the U.S.
DKOS Gets It Right Read this: A Silent Coup d’état Has Already Happened in the U.S. It is amazing to me that these nutjobs voted in the coup and now they complain?

Open Letter To Dr. John Corsi
Your optimism is most refreshing, but I have two major issues with your reason. The belief that Americans will rise up and become the modern Patriot you call for, is over-the-top optimistic. They would if they knew. They, for the most part, do not know. They do not follow Washington unless Washington interrupts them and with the media in the plan, as Marx would so | Read More »
Barack Obama – Illegitimate Son of an Indonesian Dictator?
Last year a former Indonesian dictator named Mohammed Suharto passed away at the age of 86. Suharto of Indonesia, whose 32-year dictatorship was one of the most brutal and corrupt of the 20th century…was driven from office in 1998 by widespread rioting, economic paralysis and political chaos. His rule was not without accomplishment; he led Indonesia to stability and nurtured economic growth. But these successes | Read More »

Miguel Estrada: Zelaya has “a meritorious immigration beef.”
Which is, of course, much different than being ‘a victim of a coup.’ After carefully and reasonably setting out the chain of events of the Honduran non-coup (something, I am forced to note, that this slapdash administration we have running foreign affairs neglected to do before reflexively supporting Zelaya*), Estrada finishes up: It cannot be right to call this a “coup.” Micheletti was lawfully made | Read More »
When is a Coup Not a Coup?
How about when it is constitutional? TRANSLATION – Article 239.- The citizen that has been the head of the Executive Branch cannot be President or Vice-President again. Whoever violates this law or proposes its reform, as well as those that support such violation directly or indirectly, will immediately cease in their functions and will be unable to hold any public office for a period of | Read More »
Turns out that Honduras did not have a coup after all.
(Background here.) They had a court order. Fausta updated: 1:50PM Indeed, Honduras’ La Prensa states that (My translation: If you use this, please credit me and link to this post) An official statement of the Supreme Court of Justice explained that the Armed Forces acted under lawful grounds when detaining the President of the Republic, and by decommissioning the materials to be used on the | Read More »
“Don’t MAKE me turn this state legislature around.”
I have no particular love for NY Governor David Paterson, given that he had to start his tenure as Governor by mentioning the adultery that he had somehow forgotten to mention to the voters up to that point – but that being said, this was funny: Gov. David Paterson just put the kibosh on the Senate Democrats’ plans to leave the Capitol tonight, warning that | Read More »
Clearly, the NY Senate situation requires Thunderdome.
[UPDATE] AoSHQ thinks it’s a coup, and has its own suggestion for a resolution. Because either the NY Senate Democrats are trying something sneaky… Democrats in the Chamber! (But Still No Agreement) ALBANY—Most the Democrats in the State Senate have barricaded themselves in the chamber. [snip] The Democrats arrived around 12:30. It’s unclear what’s going on. All the doors are locked, and journalists as well | Read More »

Open Sedition in the pages of the Wall Street Journal
Here it comes! The dismantling of the rights of the states and its right there in the Wall Street Journal. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122930124441705413.html?mod=rss_opinion_main Jonathan Soros (yes, that son of the Soros) is pushing the elimination of the Electoral College. But he isn’t calling for a Constitutional amendment to do it, he’s calling for a rejection of the Constitution to do it. Remember, the President is NOT elected | Read More »
How Sedition and Corruption Elected a Coup
As evidenced by a new documentary, the press kept knowledge of anything negative about Obama and the Democrats completely quiet. The average voter had no clue about Bill Ayers, Tony Resko, George Soros, how the Democrats set up the housing crash, how the Democrats set up the Wall Street fiasco, the pending redistribution of wealth, that socialism is a cancer or the coming destruction of | Read More »

Arrogant Freshman Senator
After watching Obama’s live news conference I can only say this man is not ready to be a dog catcher. He came across arrogant, ill advised, lost and misplaced.The MSM media has “totally” destroyed America’s election process. The MSM media has already has crowned Obama President and today Obama was trying to show them how Presidential he really is. Today, Obama was out of his | Read More »
Conservative Blogger Blows Lid Off Union’s “Coup Attempt!”
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. Today Michigan’s Mackinac Center for Public Policy made public an incredible document from a union Web site that appears to expose a so-called “Reform Michigan Government Now” ballot initiative sponsored by unions as a blatant attempt at – the document’s title tells it all – ”Changing the Rules of Politics in Michigan to Help Democrats.” This is a major | Read More »
