Closing Thought–07Mar17

Look behind the door!

From time to time here on IST I will write a “what if” scenario…it is a post about how things could be brought about with a few minor changes……

I recently gave a talk at the local university about a coup d’etat and how it could come about through non-violent means….and that talk got me to thinking about our present day dilemma….well only in some people’s minds that is……

I looked at the people around Pres. Trump and especially the VP, Mike Pence….if you take a close look at him he is a theocrat…..and some of the cabinet I am not sure of their loyalty to the president……but how could any of these people pull off a coup without the use of weapons and violence was my next question….

The Constitution came to mind and the 25th amendment……

The answer lies in Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution.

The amendment states that if, for whatever reason, the vice president and a majority of sitting Cabinet secretaries decide that the president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” they can simply put that down in writing and send it to two people — the speaker of the House and the Senate’s president pro tem.

I am not saying this is what should be attempted….but I am saying that after careful consideration I would not trust Pence and some within the cabinet as far as I could spit them.

But there is a more troubling situation brewing…..a “Deep State” coup…….

The deep state, although there’s no precise or scientific definition, generally refers to the agencies in Washington that are permanent power factions. They stay and exercise power even as presidents who are elected come and go. They typically exercise their power in secret, in the dark, and so they’re barely subject to democratic accountability, if they’re subject to it at all. It’s agencies like the CIA, the NSA and the other intelligence agencies, that are essentially designed to disseminate disinformation and deceit and propaganda, and have a long history of doing not only that, but also have a long history of the world’s worst war crimes, atrocities and death squads. This is who not just people like Bill Kristol, but lots of Democrats are placing their faith in, are trying to empower, are cheering for as they exert power separate and apart from—in fact, in opposition to—the political officials to whom they’re supposed to be subordinate.

I agree there is something nefarious going on in DC these days…..another disturbing thought.

Pres. Trump a word of warning…..your enemies are closer than you think…..do not turn your back on Pence……

How’s that for a closing…..my day has come to an end and I must take my leave but never fear….the Professor will return tomorrow with more STUFF!

  1. More “Stuff” of which nightmares are made.

    Any sort of coup would result in further unthinking and further unthinkables. However, tweet this post to Trump and lets see what shakes out. Have a great day and evening chuq. ~~dru~~

    1. That is a great idea…..I am starting a conspiracy here….I think it is Pence that is the problem not the MSM…..enjoy your time away…chuq

  2. Sorry, too tired to explore to any depth, but, a question occurs to me… What makes anyone think our political process has NOT been suborned by the deep state, and others, for a very long time?…. As some of the older agents (CIA, NSA, FBI, etc) approach their deaths, a significant number are revealing, in deathbed confessions, their part in any number of significant historical events, such as the Kennedy assassination(s), Nixon’s downfall, and others I have seen on various news venues….)

    This doesn’t even explore the machinations of those who control the money, who can literally buy the loyalty of any part of the government, and often do so…Big Pharma and the arms manufacturers come immediately to mind, with their long-time control of Congressional members of both houses….

    In truth, the voting public has had no significant input into the process for about a hundred and fifty years…

    It’s all corrupt, ffolkes, top to bottom, world- and society-wide… Your only possible source of security and happiness comes from inside you, not from any external source. Not the government, not any religion, & most certainly not a tat bank account…

    gigoid, the dubious

    1. The deathbed confessions you allude to are fabricated by the very agencies themselves and are designed to convince Americans of closure in the referenced incidents. It is all diversionary — all scripted. It is all part of a false narrative being written by the dark-power elite.

      1. While I agree with your opinion of any confession from people who lied for their entire lives, and, with the relative reliability of any news source, some of the information fits with observed evidence through out my own life. I also agree it is part of the false narrative being carried out by the more insane members of our human culture, some of whom are included in what I said above, regarding those who control government(s).

        I’m also of the opinion none of it is real; merely a manifestation of humanity’s mistaken belief in their ability to control reality; moreover, even that much of it that is real, is meaningless in the face of our own impending extinction, whether by climate change accelerated past all stopping, or, radioactivity, which continues to leak from Fukushima, thanks to a nuclear fire they cannot extinguish, burning its way ever further into the earth…. At this point, they cannot even find it, as it kills the robots they try to send in to monitor what is happening… All they really know is it continues to spew ever greater levels of radiation into the ocean, the ground, and the air…. But, the last news story seen in any MSM outlet in this country was March 3…

        As I put in another comment, the chances are, you, me, and everyone else, may as well BOAKOAG….

        Bend over and kiss our asses goodbye….

        gigoid, the dubious

      2. Agreed; no sense in crying over it now…. I feel the same, but, also feel the sadness of so much wasted potential. I don’t want to be cynical, but, people just keep displaying their stupidity, & don’t seem to care it is killing us all…

        Oh, well…

        gigoid

    2. I am working on a conspiracy that it is the VP, Pence, that is the source of the leaks….setting Trump up for a 25th amend. ttack…chuq

  3. I have to agree with your assessment on this Pence thing. I have always thought that there are those in the Right Wing who would prefer to do an “Et-Tu-Brute” scenario on Trump (Figuratively speaking of course) and crown their extreme right wing icon in his stead.

  4. Supporting any form of coup is a slippery slope. Look what happened in most countries where this went on. Further coups, instability, mass murder, economic collapse. Deal with the devil you know for now, and stick out the tenure.
    Best wishes, Pete.
