Gates Threatens Obama with US Military Coup

Gates Threatens Obama with US Military Coup
By Francis A. Boyle

According to today’s New York Times, flying home on his way back from Pakistan, Secretary of “Defense” Gates “relaxed on the 14-hour trip home by watching ‘Seven Days in May,’ the cold war-era film about an attempted military coup in the United States.” Gosh, that’s really relaxing! All of a sudden out of nowhere Gates resurrects this ancient film and ostentatiously lets the New York Times and the other media know that he is watching it on his Pentagon plane home.

Obviously, Gates is sending a threat to Obama and the civilian “leadership” in America: You risk a military coup if you do not do exactly what we in the Pentagon tell you to do. This is no idle threat. And it can happen here in America. Just remember the plutocratic sponsored military coup attempt against President Franklin Roosevelt that was thwarted by retired Marine Corps General Smedley Butler under similar economic and political conditions. If it had succeeded that anti-FDR coup would have established a fascist dictatorship in America. I am not comparing Obama to FDR by any means. But the historical parallels should be obvious to everyone. And remember that Bush’s General Tommy Franks publicly stated that in the event of another major terrorist attack on America, the American people would demand that the military shut the civilian government down. In other words, Gen. Franks too publicly threatened a military coup against this Republic’s democratically elected civilian leadership.

Or perhaps our "Special Friend's" Fifth Column . . .

. . . is running scared that our U.S. CONSTITUTIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT and MILITARY STAFF have had ENOUGH!!!! . . . ;-)

(clipped headline and article from VETERANS TODAY)
"ISRAEL: PLEASE, NO MORE BIN LADEN TAPES, NOBODY IS BUYING IT! - The new audio tape from 'Osama bin Laden' taking responsibility for the idiotic and childish incident in Detroit where moronic Nigerian armed with a useless 'bomb' is simply too much. Now using audio tapes because, supposedly, nobody in Al Qaeda got a flash drive video recorder for Christmas is even more of a joke."

(full story)

Here is my favorite part, kidz . . .

(begin clipped article from above)
"A further abuse, of course, is not only that we are no longer seeing the easily debunked bin Laden doubles whose video tapes were 'mysteriously' released by SITE Intelligence, the Rita Katz/Israeli group that seems to find them in trash bins behind delicatessens.

The 'new' audio tape itself contains statements claiming credit for 9/11 in direct contradiction to the real bin Laden videos, the only ones authenticated.

If you wondered why the FBI doesn’t list Osama bin Laden as a suspect in 9/11, I think you have your answer. If they think the bin Laden 'admissions' aren’t credibile, I wonder who the FBI is investigating or if they have simply been told to mind their own business."
(end clipped article)

WOW!!! Now, THAT is MY U.S. MILITARY talking, kidz!!!

"I, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

"Call out the instigators
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here,
And you know it's right
And you know that it's right
We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now!!!"
