This 'palace coup' is not a secret conspiracy, but an open, loud attack on the election.
The coup involves important US elites,
who openly intervene on many levels from the street to the current
President, from sectors of the intelligence community, billionaire
financiers out to the more marginal 'leftist' shills of the
We conclude with an evaluation of the
potential political consequences of the attempted coup and Trump's
moves to defend his electoral victory and legitimacy.
These are especially interesting since the Obama Administration served as the 'midwife' for these 'regime changes'.
...experienced coups, in which the
elected Presidents were ousted through a series of political
orchestrated by economic elites and
their political allies in Congress and the Judiciary.
Coup-makers depend on the 'Big Lie' as their point of departure - accusing President-Elect Trump of,
The first operatives to emerge in the
early stages of the coup included the marginal-left Green Party
Presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein, who won less than 1%
of the vote, as well as the mass media.
This dodgy money financed her demand for ballot recounts in selective states in order to challenge Trump's victory.
The recounts failed to change the
outcome, but it was a 'first shot across the bow', to stop Trump. It
became a propaganda focus for the neo-conservative mass media to
mobilize several thousand Clintonite and liberal activists.
Their main claim was that anonymous
'Russian hackers' and not the American voters had decided the US
Presidential election of November 2016!
Everyday, every hour, the 'Russian Plot' was breathlessly described in,
...and their overseas followers in,
American Empire looked increasingly
like a 'banana republic'.
This established the ground work for even higher level political intervention: The current US Administration, including President Obama, members of the US Congress from both parties, and current and former heads of the CIA jumped into the fray.
As the vote recount ploy flopped, they all decided that 'Vladimir Putin swung the US election!'
It wasn't just lunatic neo-conservative warmongers who sought to oust Trump and impose Hillary Clinton on the American people, liberals and social democrats were screaming 'Russian Plot!'
They demanded a formal Congressional investigation of the 'Russian cyber hacking' of Hillary's personal e-mails (where she plotted to cheat her rival 'Bernie Sanders' in the primaries). They demanded even tighter economic sanctions against Russia and increased military provocations.
The outgoing Democratic Senator and
Minority Leader 'Harry' Reid wildly accused the FBI of
acting as 'Russian agents' and hinted at a purge.
Obama refused to reveal any proof of
such a broad plot, citing 'national security'.
He darkly promised to retaliate against Russia,
Obama also pledged to send more US troops to the Middle East and increase arms shipments to the jihadi terrorists in Syria, as well as the Gulf State and Saudi 'allies'.
Coincidentally, the Syrian Government
and their Russian allies were poised to drive the US-backed
terrorists out of Aleppo - and defeat Obama's campaign of 'regime
change' in Syria.
He prepared a diverse counter-attack to
defend his election, relying on elite allies and mass supporters.
He appointed three retired generals to key Defense and Security positions - indicating a power struggle between the highly politicized CIA and the military. Active and retired members of the US Armed Forces have been key Trump supporters.
He announced that he would bring his own
security teams and integrate them with the Presidential Secret
Service during his administration.
This was were countered by Trump's appointment of powerful Wall Street Zionists like,
Faced with the Obama-CIA plot to paint
Trump as a Russian agent for
Vladimir Putin, the President-Elect named security
hardliners including past and present military leaders and FBI
officials, to key security and intelligence positions.
A concoction of pre-cooked 'findings' is already oozing out of secret clandestine CIA archives with the President's approval.
Obama's last-ditch effort will not change the outcome of the election. Clearly this is designed to poison the diplomatic well and present Trump's incoming administration as dangerous.
Trump's promise to improve relations
with Russia will face enormous resistance in this frothy, breathless
hysteria of Russophobia.
He wants to force a continuation of his grotesque policies onto the incoming Trump Administration.
Will Trump succumb?
The legitimacy of his election and his freedom to make policy will depend on overcoming the Clinton-Obama-neo-con-leftist coup with his own bloc of US military and the powerful Wall Street allies, as well as his mass support among the 'angry' American electorate.
Trump's success at thwarting the current 'Russian ploy' requires his forming counter alliances with Washington plutocrats, many of whom will oppose any diplomatic agreement with Putin.
Trump's appointment of hard-line
economic plutocrats who are deeply committed to shredding social
programs (public education, Medicare, Social Security) could ignite
the anger of his mass supporters by savaging their jobs, health
care, pensions and their children's future.
He embarked on a major series of 'victory tours' around the country to thank his supporters among the military, workers, women and small business people and call on them to defend his election to the presidency.
He will have to fulfill some of his promises to the masses or face 'the real fire', not from Clintonite shills and war-mongers, but from the very people who voted for him...
