In a coup, it is the military, paramilitary, or opposing political faction that deposes the current government and assumes power.
If you impeach a president, you charge him or her with a crime. Congress may vote to impeach a president, but being impeached is only the first step in removing an official from office. The Constitution requires a two-thirds super majority vote in the senate to convict a person being impeached.
On November 9th of 2016 we began to hear calls for the impeachment of President – elect Trump. The crime for which he was accused was winning the election which could be proven, but it was not considered to be a crime except for the likes of Al Green and Maxine Waters. The cries for impeachment continued and have not abated. The political faction calling for President Trump to be removed from office have accused him of many crimes, but not one single accusation has been shown to have any merit. In fact, what we are learning is that this political faction is accusing President Trump of the crimes they committed to try to prevent his election. This political faction is now employing reification on such ambiguities as hate, prejudice, racism, sexism, and on and on.
The process of impeachment, as outlined in the United States Constitution (as a note of information, members of the house and senate are not subject to impeachment, the only constitutional remedy to remove a sitting member of the house or senate is by a vote of the respective chamber) is deemed to be for treason or a high crime or misdemeanor. It is not a process of declaring impeachment and then searching for treason or the high crime or misdemeanor.
A coup is the act of overthrowing a current government by a political faction. Since a coup is an illegal act, there are no established rules. The method to bring about a coup is the same method normally used by collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, - all virtually the same) and that method is “the ends justify the means.” The end is to dispose of the current lawful government by any means possible including rejecting such lawful events as a constitutional election or a time-honored practice such as peaceful transfer of power.
Many reasons are given as justification for this rejection and blatantly illegal and unconstitutional act. Common refrains from the bumper sticker and 30 second sound bite Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) is that President Trump is a liar, a racist, a sexist and on and on, but when asked for specific examples, not one legitimate example is ever given. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrats) who claim to know more, will say that President Trump has committed unconstitutional acts. Again, when asked for specific examples, none can be given that survive the slightest amount of scrutiny.
Understanding that, according to Joe Biden, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) never let facts get in the way of their truth, we must look beyond their truth and rely on facts to establish this is a coup attempt. Here are the facts.
What we know is that for the past several decades, those who have claimed to be conservatives and oppose such collectivist beliefs as massive spending enabled by imposing a steeply progressive income tax and accumulating massive amounts of public debt, have in fact enabled these collectivist necessities to bring about their desired conforming and equal society. These imaginary conservatives included but are not limited to the likes of John Boehnor, Paul Ryan, John, Kasich, Mitt Romney, and of course the darling of the collectivists, John McCain. The collectivists knew that the rhetoric of these so-called conservatives did not match their actions, and when it was necessary to vote for more government with more confiscation of individual citizens property and more government debt, the collectivists could count on the RHINO's.
President Trump would be different, and they knew it. Just as the Chinese have learned with President Trump, it is not business as usual; usual meaning lots of rhetoric but capitulation with the slightest amount of resistance. This the collectivist could not tolerate. Comrade Obama had been very successful in enhancing the power of the bureaucracy (always critical to collectivists) and was finalizing the effort to revamp the security agencies of the government from agencies to protect the United States to agencies that placed the good of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party first. This effort would continue and be finalized under a Clinton administration. That was why Clinton had to be elected and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) did anything to make it happen. Where they failed is their reliance on Clinton. Clinton was a pathetic candidate with an even more pathetic likeability factor.
The evening of November 8th, 2016, after the tears had stopped following and the tissue boxes were empty but still scattered about the arena, the coup began. The transformation of the party to a collectivist party had occurred and the media was a part of that transformation and could be counted as a willing and contributing part of the coup. The attempted coup will continue until it is successful or those in the United States who still believe in and cherish freedom will completely reject the ends that justify the means for those who despise our American ideals of individualism, rule of law, limited government, divided government, sovereignty of the people, and fairness; those are people who call themselves Democrats and support Democrat candidates and policies.
What we know is that today, nearly 2 out of 3 Americans who identify as Democrats have a favorable view of socialism (collectivism), according to a survey of 1,700 Americans released by the Cato Institute, a libertarian-leaning think tank. That's 64% of those who identify as Democrats — a significantly higher percentage than the general population. Only 39% of Americans view socialism favorably, and only 13% of Republicans do.
Remember, the collectivists, which includes Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have never played by any rule other than the “ends justify the means.” The more President Trump refuses to capitulate, the more the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are exposed for their immoral and illegal acts, the more desperate they will become. If you believe this coup should be exposed and destroyed, your resolve must become as firm as is President Trump’s. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and the Chinese are learning they are not dealing with the likes of McCain or Romney, but they are dealing with an American who believes in people over government, an American who believes in America first. To remain free and pass on a free nation to future Americans, we must have unwavering resolve. The coup must be totally and completely squelched.
