Pelosi Tried to Foment a Military Coup Against Trump

Those on the left have been accusing President Donald Trump of fomenting an insurrection because of the Capitol protest. But Trump never called for violence or a riot.


But these are the same people who for four years tried to take out and undermined the duly elected president of the United States through a false Russia Collusion hoax story. These are the same people who rioted on Trump’s Inauguration Day, attacking and setting fire to thing in Washington, D.C.(By the way, all those arrested in those attacks were ultimately released without any time for their actions). These are the same people who refused to go to his election, calling him illegitimate. These are the same people who ignored attacks on federal buildings for the last several months because they were perpetrated by those on the left, ignored over 700 law enforcement officers being injured and over 32 people being killed. These are the same people who celebrated the BLM radicals at their Democrat convention. Kamala Harris and 13 Biden staffers even donated and encouraged people to donate to a fund to bail out rioters.

They’ve spent four years fomenting an effort to take Trump out. They are everything they accuse Trump of being. They failed to take him out before. But even with just 11 days left before inauguration, they’re still trying.

The New York Times ran a story today about the actions of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi behind the scenes against the president. Talk about “insurrection,” she was essentially fomenting a coup, and fomenting the military against the president, trying to remove him from the chain of command.


Here’s the way the New York Times reported it:

In a phone call to the chairman, Gen. Mark A. Milley, Ms. Pelosi appeared to be seeking to have the Pentagon leadership essentially remove Mr. Trump from his authorities as the commander in chief. That could be accomplished by ignoring the president’s orders or slowing them by questioning whether they were issued legally.

But General Milley appears to have made no commitments. Short of the cabinet invoking the 25th Amendment or removing Mr. Trump through impeachment in the House and conviction in the Senate, it is unconstitutional to defy legal orders from the commander in chief.

Ms. Pelosi’s request, which she announced to the Democratic caucus as an effort to prevent “an unhinged president” from using the nuclear codes, was wrapped in the politics of seeking a second impeachment of Mr. Trump.


Mr. Trump, they noted, is still the commander in chief; unless he is removed, the military is bound to follow his lawful orders. While military officials can refuse to carry out orders they view as illegal — or slow the process by sending those orders for careful legal review — they cannot remove the president from the chain of command. That would amount to a military coup, the officials said.

A coup. She’s encouraging that and a violation of the Constitution to consolidate her own effort against the president. This is an abuse of her own power to undermine her political opponent and a violation of the separation of powers. She has no right to interfere in the military chain of command. Yet, guarantee it, there will be no action taken against her and it will all be excused.


Somehow the president is supposedly responsible for what people do at a protest, but Pelosi isn’t responsible for her own actions? But you know that’s how the left will spin it. No, she doesn’t have the right to suggest such things.

Pelosi is of course trying to impeach Trump again, with 11 days left and they were reportedly trying to get him through the 25th Amendment as well.

At what point do you call all that they have tried over the past four years honestly what it really has been – a coup? But this latest actions is brazenly unconstitutional, with this effort with the military.
