Military intervention in the coup--Seven Days in May

This essay has been retitled to better express what is going on in Amerika.

Greetings fellow swampers and those preferring to remain dry:

My torpor has been roused, so that a sally forth into the blogosphere is again on order. I have been invigorated by reading the recent essay by an amphibian

C'mon, AE, let's not engage in identarianism!

To which I reply "why not?"

I have never had any animosity towards amphibians. In fact, some have been the most delicious delightful dinner companions. Cubby holing is nice for hiding. But I digress.

Whilst watching CrossTalk with Peter LaVelle on RT, one of his guests, George Szamuely in Hungary remarked about the similarity of the current U.S. political situation to the great John Frankenheimer-directed movie Seven Days in May. The movie made in 1964 in black and white has an all-star lineup: Frederic March as besieged President Jordan Lyman; Burt Lancaster as General Scott Four-star head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; Kirk Douglas as Colonel Casey; Edmund O'Brien as Senator Clark of Georgia; Ava Gardner as Washington socialite Elaine Holbrook.

Here's the plot--but don't let my revelation deter you from watching this classic, eloquent movie.

President Lyman, with Senate approval enters into a treaty with Russia (interestingly the movie did not refer to "the Soviet Union" but to Russia). This treaty entails bilateral disassembly of nuclear weapons. The war hawks, chief of whom in the movie is General Scott, air force general CJCOS, who vehemently disagrees with this treaty he considers renders the US defenseless against the Russkies. Is this starting to resonate here?

Scott has 3 of the 4 JCOS members on line to assist in a coup, scheduled for the first running of the Preakness Stakes in May. The President is hemmed in but has few but useful allies. The time frame is compressed to seven days. Not 3 years and counting.

President Lyman was eloquent. President Trump is not. Trump is a crook but loves this country. One may discuss his motives. The Pelosi-Schiff wing of the Dem Partei are shredding the rules of the House of Representatives, along with it any pretense of decorum or masking of this enormous charade as anything but the divisive disaster it is proving to be since inception the day of his inauguration. We are currently being the legislative part of the coup.

The Alphabet Soup part of the plot have largely been completed. This includes phony dossiers funded by the Rodent (H. Rodent Clinton). FISA warrants. Unmasking (DOS, really). Setting up Trump aides to be sucked into a "Russian" plot. 3 of the other 4 Five Eyes performing surveillance on Americans (UK, Aus, and NZ). A web involving intergovernmental and extra-governmental agencies cooperating. One example is CGI.

After the impeachment what then? Will this tainted bill of particulars even be allowed to be presented to the Senate? Will Soros-funded militants take to the streets around the country inflicting as much disruption to daily life as possible? Think it can't happen here? Consider our legal star chambers empowered by the ill-named Patriot Act which strip away your 4th amendment rights without due process--no contrary witnesses are permitted during FISC hearings. Think about Max Blumenthal's recent over-the-top arrest for the crime of distributing food at the VZ embassy. Will the Schiff Precent be allowed to prevail? In actuality, this kabuki theater could not occur without the connivance of Nancy Pelosi whose Pacific Heights gated mansion is far from the urban fecal blight now afflicting SF.

Mark Zaid, "whistleblower lawyer" par excellence, wrote in a Tweet more two years ago--early 2017, saying the "coup is, impeachment". Could this be any plainer?.

The governmental fabric is so frayed that the Deep State is no longer reticent about its existence from publicly revealed. These guys bring down passenger Airplanes just to kill one person. Just hope some targeted person isn't on your flight.

In the absence of large scale civil unrest, the charges reach the senate. Two options are present for McConnell:

1. Cover up--drop the impeachment request as being improperly conceived and thus invalid. This approach precludes a true trial, which Senate consideration of the charges entails. Thus all the dirt about the Bidens, Kerry, HRC, Obomba, etc. is never revealed. Win-win for the Republic huh?

2. Take the matter to the Senate floor for debate. This means a trial in which ALL Senators must be present 6 days per week for the duration of the trial. So Liz, Bernie, Camel, Spartacus and Klobuchar have to get off the campaign trail.

But worse is the undoubted airing of filth, lots of it. Filth afflicting both Parteis. Plenty of it. including Elaine Chao (Mrs. McConnell) and Her Chinese business affairs.

My bet--and I only bet on sure things--such as the Rodent running for president again--is that McTurtle will sweep this whole thing under the rug.

But after the blow-off of this sham plot, what then happens to the coup plotters?

Once again, my reptilian brain can tolerate consideration of two options, usually visualized as eat-or-don't-eat. The more creative souls likely could consider other options.

Post-impeachment option one:

Gentle slaps on the wrists for all except Comey, Brennan, Clapper. The three musketeers may actually see prison time. From then on, we deal with a crippled executive and fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants rule making in Congress. Election fraud won't matter, because such minimal punishment will throughly deter the citizenry from any hope in their future freedom. Yes, failure to act goes that far. The train is on the tracks and the tracks lead only one way, which won't be your way, comrade.

Post-impeachment option two:

Strict administration of justice to the coup plotters. Translation: those bastards should be treated just as harshly as any of us. This will act as a considerable deterrent for at most one generation. Then the battle begins once again, in a different visage.

This is not a school play.
This is deadly serious.
This IS war

Nikki Haley accuses Gen. John Kelly of trying to recruit her to subvert Trump.

Former US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley alleges that two of President Trump’s senior advisers tried to recruit her to secretly undermine the administration from the inside.

In her explosive new memoir, Haley claims former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly attempted to bring her in to subvert the president, according to The Washington Post which obtained the book prior to its release.

Haley refused their attempts to convince her to “save the country,” noting Tillerson and Kelly were suspicious of and threatened by her relationship with the president. During her time in the administration, Haley demonstrated an “obligation to carry out [Trump’s] wishes since he was the one elected by voters,” wrote Washington Post reporter Anne Gearan.

“Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country,” Haley wrote in “With All Due Respect.”

It has already started!

The temperature is rising in the DC swamp. I don't need my cousin Adelbert to tell me about his home waters. The video by Tim Pool further details charges by Nikki Haley concerning Tillerson and Get. Kelly. This is scary. The second part of this video discusses gossip blower #2 having a Go Fund Me page initiated by attorney Mark "the Coup has started" Zaid.

Formal ICIG complaint filed against Trump whistleblower over potential illicit donations

major breaking news a new IC IGcomplaint alleges that the Trump Ukraine
whistleblower may be soliciting illicit donations indirectly through a GoFundMe.
So far they've raised two hundred and twenty seven thousand dollars but there are concerns that as a member of the intelligence community they can't be accepting these gifts but also that foreign individuals or foreign agents may be contributing financially to the whistleblower this calls into question the motivations of those coming out and claiming the president has done wrong not only do we see financial incentives but there are individuals who are claiming that they know better than the president they disagree with his foreign policy so they are coming out and complaining about it or trying to resist

Then about Nikki Haley's allegations:

this comes in the backdrop of Nikki Haley saying that senior Trump officials tried to get her to resist the president this is scary because Trump may be a bad president but he was elected so these people who are now trying to subvert the president either for political reasons
or monetary reasons should not be deciding for the rest of us what the country should or shouldn't be doing even if Trump is doing wrong it's one or two terms and then someone else comes...

The unfolding of this origami convoluted creation is becoming both more obvious and uglier by the day. As my title says--this is Seven Days in May--perhaps coming by Christmas.

So let's bring back members of the Bush administration. The latest reincarnated war criminal who no one should ever take serious again is Condi Rice who says that she has some problems with people involved in doing whatever the hell they wanted in Ukraine, but she doesn't think Trump should have asked Zelensky for an investigation into ByeDone. George bush, Bolton and many other war criminals are now acceptable again just because they bad mouth Trump. They were also upset when war criminal Mattis was let go as well as Sessions and others including Robert Swan Mueller! Good grief..

The kids think Russia is spreading propaganda about the White Helmets being a terrorist organization. They actually believe that they are doing good things in Syria. I'm just amazed by how shallow their reading pool must be if they don't know the truth about them.
