On November 8, 2016, we held elections in the United States of America. The results were truly stunning. Mr. Donald J. Trump, an unconventional candidate, an outsider to politics, a successful businessman, who is not a member of the so-called establishment won 306 electoral votes and solidly defeated the candidate of the Democrat party who managed to receive only 232 electoral votes.
On November 9, 2016, about 60 days before Mr. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of this great country of ours, and only 24 hours after the election results were known; a major coup attempt was started by a massive group of losers.
And it continues to this day.
In some third world countries, coups are attempted by military forces to depose corrupt and vicious dictators, usually after long and protracted street actions by those who are unhappy with the situation. These coups often end with the dictator facing the business end of a weapon. Many people suffer the consequences, people die, a new dictator comes into power who is usually worse than the one he deposed and so on and so forth. Life goes on; nothing changes. Thankfully, we have never had a coup like this in our country and one hopes and prays we shall never have one.
However, I am convinced, along with millions of others that a different type of a coup in America is now in progress. It is an attempted coup by the deep state. You may or may not be familiar with the term deep state. However, those of us who had the misfortune of experiencing the deep state know well what it looks, talks and acts like. Deep state is defined as “A body of people, typically influential members of government agencies or the military, believed to be involved in the secret manipulation or control of government policy for their own benefit.”
One major arm of the deep state in America today are the leftover bureaucrats from the previous administration of President Barack Obama who staffed every department of the United States government with their operatives during the eight years they were in power. From the White House to the State Department, from the FBI to the CIA, Obama operatives still hold key positions and form the main power of the deep state. They are the “leakers” of fake news.
Another arm of the deep state is what is known as the “mainstream media,” which in this case is represented by the Washington Post, New York Times, MSNBC, CNN and others.
The attempted coup by the deep state in the United States is now in full bloom. Thankfully no weapons have been used and people have not died fighting in the streets, although there are a few suspicious deaths which will be investigated.
For those of us who have experienced and followed the deep state in Turkey for many years, this is all very real. The scenario is so familiar. The duly elected president does not meet the expectations of the elites who live in their own make believe bubbles with safe spaces and outrageous ideas. They decide to fight an underhanded war against the elected office holder. Relentlessly, they make up allegation after allegation of wrongdoing; charging them with the most outrageous actions (such as collaborating with the Russians in the election process, collusion); they leak fake news to their pals in the media who print or broadcast this fake news to the public without showing any proof or evidence to back up their charges.
Those involved in the deep state more than likely have more money in their bank accounts than those whom they are pretending to save from the person in power (case in point would be George Soros as well as the various foolish Hollywood stars whose knowledge of the world would hardly fill a thimble). Members of the deep state engage in lies, unsubstantiated and outrageous stories, engage in innuendos and fake explosive situations day after day; thus, effectively stopping the elected government from acting upon their election promises. As a result, the duly elected president and his cabinet are put into defensive postures, and naturally unable to perform their duties and fail to realize their promises to the American people who elected them to office.
The coup attempt by the deep state in the USA today is a textbook example of this evil process. The deep state wants to “impeach” the President who has been in office less than four months.
Mr. Trump was elected president by the votes of 62,979,636 of our fellow citizens. The losers failed to see or read the feelings of these more than sixty-two million Americans and can’t accept the results. They are devastated and are in a perpetual state of meltdown. They thought Mr. Trump was “a joke,” a “loser,” someone who would not go through with the elections once he became the candidate of his party, one who would never win against their candidate who has been in one government job or another her entire life, a real swamp dweller! So, the deep state supported Mr. Trump all through the primaries and gave him a pass on anything and everything he said or did hoping he would be the Republican candidate. They did not believe that he could have beaten their candidate. They still don’t! It is a known fact that the deep state resides mainly in the swamp in Washington. As such, they were unable to connect with the hearts and souls of the patriotic citizens of our great nation.
Therefore, as soon as Mr. Trump was elected, even before his presidency was certified, the deep state started their coup attempt.
First, they decided that Mr. Trump was not fit to be president. I have often asked myself the question, “By whose definition?” By declaring Mr. Trump “unfit to be president” they declared 62,979,636 citizens who voted for him to be stupid, ignorant masses who could barely count up to ten, since they voted for an “unfit to lead” man!
That was just the start. Almost the entire so-called mainstream press corps, coupled with liberal professors, dishonest politicians, actors, actresses, TV comedians, and the like turned against Mr. Trump, the duly elected President of the United States.
Can this attempted coup be stopped? Yes, it can and will be stopped!
First, President Trump should continue to work hard as he has been doing since day one to dismantle any remnants of the deep state. Catch the leakers, fire them and charge them with crimes. Get them out of our faces once and for all.
The first leg of his international trip to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican was a resounding success. He brought back the Sunni Islamic world back as our allies in the war against ISIS and Iran, showed the world he respects the religion of Islam while he hates and will eliminate those who subscribe to radical Islam. He showed himself to be statesman, despite the efforts of the deep state to trip him up during this amazing event.
Second, when he gets back from the trip evaluate those around him, make sure none of them is a member of the deep state; fire those that are not doing their jobs above and beyond their abilities and replace them with smart, savvy, strong statesmen who will surround and protect him. Let him do his job as he was elected to do and leave fighting the barking dogs to this new group of patriots.
Third and most importantly, use the bully pulpit. Address the American people at least once a week on national television with prepared statements, making sure everyone in the country knows what he has been doing, his achievements and success of America in the world stage. Never stop, never slow down, never give in and never stoop to the deep state’s level.
And finally give a stern message to those weak-kneed establishment Republicans who never did like him; lost in the primaries to him and put them on notice that their seats may be in danger in 2018 elections if they act like members of the deep state.
Coups can be stopped before they succeed. It has been done before by smart leaders who understood the situation, planned their strategy well, acted quickly and decisively and attacked the coup attempters on their turf, and made them look like the fools that they are.
I am confident that the coup by the deep state will not be successful, as truth always wins; good is always victorious over evil.
Great days await America. All Americans will pitch in, raise their voices, stomp their feet, bang their fists on the tables and be heard by the deep state. We shall overcome.
