Obama Pentagon official says anti-Trump military coup now possible

A former Defense Department official under the Obama administration has raised the specter of a military coup to remove President Donald Trump from power.

In an editorial penned for Foreign Policy, 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.

“Donald Trump’s first week as president has made it all too clear: Yes, he is as crazy as everyone feared,” Ms. Brooks wrote. “[One] 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.’”

Ms. Brooks‘ editorial comes as a recent poll by Public Policy Polling group found that 40 percent of registered voters support Mr. Trump’s impeachment.

    Probably just another SOROS paid Black whining because she can’t WAIT to get back on the Democrat Plantation and take the rest of America with her. OH, WELL! This is what you get from trying to overthrow other duly elected governments. America’s chickens are coming home to roost

  • Rob1911a1 says:

    The woman is guilty of treason (suborning the overthrow of a duly elected President just because the liberal idiots don’t like him is a serious Federal Felony). I say charge her with treason; her own words should make for an easy conviction. As for the military, my wife and I are vets; the military LOVES Trump, because he is NOT a mealy mouthed pussy like Obama. Trump SUPPORTS our military, while the Clintons and Obama tried to tear it down. (Obama fired 19 plus Generals and Admirals who would not play his politically correct games, and he screwed Petraus over as well).


    a military coup to remove Trump…..some one has a gas bubble in his head…blow it out and see a clearer world…our military Has Been, Is Now and Will Remain the most staunch defender of the Constitution of the USA….only a democorruption could think with any reality of our military serving the slave merchant/hatemongering/dictatorial demands of the broken reality Demo/Progres/Liber/Commun/Dictat/ego ego ego ego toilet evil dwellers….Obama and the DemoCorruption have tried to flood us with every different, divergent, desperate, defiant group they could find to push against our borders and take over our country…THEY WILL LOSE…LIBERTY WILL VOMIT THEM FORTH…HERE STILL STANDS THE MINUTEMAN AND HE STRIDES DAILY FORWARD UNDER OUR FLAG….FREEDOM IS THE DEEPEST STRONGEST MOST DYNAMIC DEMAND …….given their foreign lives…and America ? they may hate and scheme…their children will be discomforted and dismayed by their parents…the second generation will know the Constitution, CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULY, thank Mr. Lincoln, think about the Ten Commandments, watch Western movies of Cowboys and Freedom….they will be Americans with a family history in some “old country “

    I that should take place Rosa your only safe place will be the Moon.

  • Greg White says:

    The article says 40% of registered voters would support a Trump impeachment. I’ll bet it would have been that high during some periods of the Obama presidency, but anyone even suggesting taking that poll would have been called a racist and probably been forced to resign. Hypocrites.

  • Linda Gentry says:

    This is bull crap. The global elites want the stupid New World Order to come into play and it would have had Hillary been elected. We the people don’t want this New World Order or the in flooding of all these refugees so they can take over and all the chaos and riots so they can overthrow our government we aren’t stupid.

  • Glen says:

    Lock this leftist plant up and through away the key.

  • rightsright says:

    If she is talking about removing Trump and served under Obama(the illegal White House dweller then she must be black. Sorry if this sounds racist but that is all I have seen out there railing against Trump and supporting the ONE WHO HAS NO AMERICAN BIRTH CERTIFICATE WITH A( PAPER COPY) RAISED SEAL(CERTIFIED)! OBAMA HAS ONLY THE SCRUTINIZED BY EXPERTS, COMPUTER GENERATED 6 LAYER FORGERY. Funny that the American born, American loving, Constitutionalist, who crosses his heart when the National Anthem is sung, is the one the left wants to get rid of. Really puzzling isn’t it?

  • justinwachin says:

    The Democrats who are fantasizing over a military coup needs to consider the unintended consequences of such an action. This sort of action probably would not stop with one man. I would like to see the Obama appointees to the Supreme Court removed. I would like to see liberal justices removed from the bench. Once people start creating the list of government officials we don’t like we could soon find that every one would be out of office.

    According to the Constitution, Mike Pence would become president if something happens to Mr. Trump. Hillary Clinton is nowhere in line to become president. Any attempt to install her as president would likely split the nation and lead to a large number of states voting to leave the union.
