The Coup Against Trump Never Ends—Milley, Washington Post, et al. Escalate the Endless Coup

July 17, 2021 (EIRNS)—If anyone thought the Russiagate coup attempt and the fake “Ukraine call” impeachment were aimed at Donald Trump alone, the fact that the coup did not end with the removal of Trump as President proves that the target was the entire American people, with the intent to keep the population permanently divided over lies and false narratives.

This week the media whores at the Washington Post and their brothel of fellow travelers unleashed another coup attempt. Excerpts from an upcoming book by two Washington Post journalists, I Alone Can FIx It by Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, quote the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley (who has denied nothing) saying: “They may try, but they’re not going to fucking succeed. You can’t do this without the military. You can’t do this without the CIA and the FBI. We’re the guys with the guns.” He told aides, they write, that “This is a Reichstag moment. ... The gospel of the Führer,” and told staffers that listening to Trump was like reading George Orwell’s 1984: “Lies are truth. Division is unity. Evil is good.”

The book also says that Nancy Pelosi called on Milley to not follow any Trump order to use nuclear weapons.

The New Yorker joined the “endless coup” effort against Trump with a July 15 article titled: “ ‘You’re Gonna Have a Fucking War’: Mark Milley’s Fight To Stop Trump from Striking Iran” The author, Susan B. Glasser, was previously an editor of Politico Magazine, Foreign Policy, and the Washington Post. She is married to Washington Post’s Peter Baker—they co-authored an early diatribe against Vladimir Putin in 2005, Kremlin Rising: Vladimir Putin's Russia and the End of Revolution.

Glasser writes that on Jan. 3, 2021, Milley met with Trump and Mike Pompeo. Milley, she says, “secretly feared that Trump would insist on launching a strike on Iranian interests that could set off a full-blown war ... as part of his quixotic campaign to overturn the results of the 2020 election and remain in power.” Milley also said that he feared, Glasser writes, that Trump would try “to use the military on the streets of America to prevent the legitimate, peaceful transfer of power.”

As Col. Richard Black (ret.) reported at a Schiller Institute conference on Sept. 5, 2020, Milley did nothing when a cabal of flag officers were urging him to join their discussion on the need for a coup against the Trump Presidency. See “Do We Risk a Military Coup?

Trump ridiculed the charges in a Telegram message, saying he mistakenly hired Milley only because Mattis hated him, so he figured he must be good. If he said the things claimed, Trump said, he “perhaps should be impeached or court-martialed.” Trump (showing his deterioration from his initial intentions as President) said that he told Milley to “spend more time thinking about China and Russia.”
