Many Trump supporters, even those currently in government, urge the president to declare martial law to prevent President-elect Biden from being sworn into office. Are we witnessing a coup and the end of the great American experiment in Democracy?
Wall Street’s major indexes continue to climb even while our government and freedoms system are at risk of being eliminated by a coup.
CNN “KFiles” reports one of Donald Trump’s appointees to the Pentagon has been “approvingly” retweeting Twitter posts that call the election of former Vice President Joe Biden to be a “coup.” While also helping to promote a petition calling for President Trump to declare martial law following his election loss.
The Trump Pentagon pending appointee Scott O’Grady, who was shot down over Bosnia in 1995, is now waiting for Senate confirmation for Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs has publicized some alarming opinions. The CNN KFiles team researched into the former pilot’s Twitter feed produced that he is in favor of preventing President-elect Biden from being sworn in on January 20, 2021, even if the Electoral College confirms his election.
In essence, Trump’s pending Pentagon appointee Scott O’Grady favors Trump staging a coup to prevent the Presidents-elect from becoming the Commander in Chief. It’s the kind of Trump insanity that is tearing the country apart.
The problem with staging a coup to Prevent Biden from becoming POTUS by using martial law is simple. No matter what happens, President Trump’s legal term of office ends on January 20, 2021. To remain President of the United States, Trump would need to appoint himself as our country’s dictator and end the American democratic experiment.
According to the CNN report, the “former fighter pilot and Trump loyalist, repeatedly retweeted tweets that falsely stated Trump won the election in “landslide fashion” and that millions of votes were stolen from the president. On November 25, O’Grady retweeted a tweet that said…
‘Trump won & Biden & his Comrades will now attempt a coup,’ next to a photoshopped image of Biden beside Xi Jinping, the President of China.”
Even more alarming was Scott O’Grady’s promotion of the idea that the U.S. military intervenes in the peaceful transfer of power at the ousted president’s request to allow him to call a new election. According to CNN…
“On December 2, he retweeted an account that shared an article that said former national security adviser Michael Flynn had shared a petition that called for martial law. He then retweeted the same account which suggested that Trump should declare martial law,” CNN reports, noting that source Twitter post that read, “I don’t know who needs to hear this but calling for martial law is not a bad idea when there is an attempted coup against the president and this country happening right now.”
The CNN report goes on to note that O’Grady has called former Defense Secretary James Mattis a “traitor,” and saying whistleblower Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman should be charged “for insurrection because he is a biased liberal political operative.”
It’s Almost Impossible for Trump to Stage a Coup
