Has a Military Coup occurred?


by Neil Turner

John Brown was accused, tried and convicted of treason against the Commonwealth of Virginia for attempting to lead a slave insurrection via a raid on the federal armory at Harpers Ferry, VA in 1859. He was found guilty of treason and hanged.

(Sept. 17, 2010) — Backdoor Amnesty is upon us…disturbing news indeed.  And petitioning Congress and the Administration simply gives legitimacy to an illegitimate Administration and a complicit – and therefore illegitimate – Congress.

This breaking story by Kimberly Dvorak of the San Diego County Political Buzz Examiner concerning a third memo “leaked” inside the DHS confirms our worst fears. Another act of Treason by the Treasoner-in-Chief and his complicit band of Czars, Justices, Judiciary, members of Congress and media moguls is about to befall us.

You may want to participate in the fund-raising and petitioning as Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi introduce their  treason-laced defense spending bill set to hit the Senate floor next week, but I believe that removing the Treasoner-in-Chief will have much more effect on stopping this nonsense that we are being hit with every day.

Recently, in a ruling by Army JAG Judge Denise Lind, our worst fears that a military coup has taken place have been confirmed. In a courts-martial pre-hearing concerning the demands of LTC Terry Lakin that the putative Commander- in-Chief must prove that he is a Constitutionally lawful CINC before anyone obeys any military orders, lest they themselves be charged with obeying an unlawful order, Judge Lind stated that any and all orders now originate with the Pentagon and no longer with the Office of the civilian President and Commander-in-Chief.

This issue is now much greater than just LTC Lakin and his refusal to obey an unlawful order; it is a case of the Military Command saying that the Military (the Pentagon) has taken over the government and that orders no longer come from the putative Commander-in-Chief. It is a ruling that says there has been a Military Coup, and we are now ruled by a Military Junta.  (NOTE:  This is not the same as that which recently occurred in Honduras – a lawful act to uphold their Constitution, until a legitimate President and CINC can be duly selected or elected – this is a secret and treasonous takeover of our Constitutional form of government, with a person of unknown origins and allegiances as the de facto pResident in charge).

This must not be allowed to stand, and the nation must be informed – through the defense that is to be mounted at Lt. Col. Lakin’s courts-martial next month.

To take your place and make your voice heard in deciding these issues, you are invited to join with The United States Patriots Union. If you are a veteran, then you should apply within the U.S. Patriots Union for participation in The Veterans Council of the United States Patriots Union.

Your country, and the continuance of our Constitutional form of government, depends on you.

    50% unemployment might do trick……………

    Logistical nightmare regardless of who volunteers to go there.

    It would be like early settlers traveling into hostile territory.

    MeJane seems caught between two mutually exclusive propositions. She says “you cannot impeach an illegal President” but also that he is no longer a president-elect because he is now president. But Obama cannot be both a legal prez and an illegal prez at the same time. Precisely because he is not eligible for the office, he remains to this day merely a president-elect.

    Since we do not have a legal President, it seems to me that Amendment 20, Section 3 of the Constitution is operative. Therefore, Congress can still exercise its authority to qualify a president-elect. This could begin today with a congressional hearing. Either now, after Nov. 2, or in January Congress should determine once and for all two things:

    1. Was Barack Obama born a citizen of the United States?

    2. Is Barack Obama a natural born Citizen as that term was used in the Constitution? (In answering this Congress may request an opinion from the Supreme Court, sans those members appointed by Obama.)

    NutN2Say, You’re right, let’s call a spade a spade. Most are scared silly of this issue, they are afraid of repercussions, riots, etc. They’re sheep who deserve to be slaves IMHO. There are still many who do not understand this issue due to the media blackout/misinformation and downright abdication of the truth, the very duties of freedom of the press. Many are patriots but do not want to disturb the elections. Elections are important but what good do elections do us if we have no Constitution to protect us? The question has always been how do we galvanize the Constitutionally-aware patriots to move this issue forward?? I think a big part of the problem is we lack leadership or is it we are afraid to become leaders ourselves? No one will help us; we will have to do it ourselves, just like our founding fathers did.

    Harry H, I think that you might be reading that wrong, take another look: Amend. 20, Section 3 states ” . . . OR [emphasis added because that “or” is key] if the President elect shall have failed to qualify…..I am referring to the wording-President elect. This speaks to qualifying a President elect before the office is handed to him so that a Constitutional crisis does not occur, not after he has already been allowed to usurp the office.

    The House of Representatives are the officials who are in charge of impeachments. The problem has always been that you cannot impeach an illegal President, that instrument is only for legal Presidents. After the midterm elections where hopefully the the House will become Republican, then they can start with proceedings to look into the nature of this treachery. The new Speaker of the House should start with Pelosi and the situation with the improper “Election Certifications” where Natural Born Citizen was missing in 49 of the 50 States. How did the State’s SOS miss that one? These certifications need to be corrected to be worded in the Constitutional legal manner so that Pelosi is investigated. Work around Obama to remove Obama.

    Usually when the general population realizes the truth and the gravity of a particular situation, it has been operative for an uncomfortable period of time. Not too dissimilar from the process that procedes the discovery of cancer and the remedies for treating both are closely related…..removal. I personally have faith in the US military as a whole and know that they will act Honorably and Constitutionally. I will celebrate when I see obama do the perpwalk in orange pajamas on national tv.

    A Pen and Harry .. your replies prompted me to read up on John Brown
    since I was an English major not a History major.

    One interesting observation written about John Brown:

    “Unlike most other Northerners, who advocated peaceful resistance to the pro-slavery faction, Brown demanded violent action in response to Southern aggression. Dissatisfied with the pacifism encouraged by the organized abolitionist movement, he reportedly said “These men are all talk. What we need is action—action!”

    That quotation of Brown’s is remarkedly similar to what I am reading
    from American Patriots who want action, not TALK. I, for one, cannot
    help but speculate on how history books will record these contemporary times.

    When all is said and done, when Obama and his ” band
    of thieves”, (as one person wrote so colorfully), have been dispatched to another
    realm of existence, due to a Grassroots Revolution incited by fed-up Tea Party members, disgruntled citizens, and asundry Patriots, will this Revolution be
    recorded in history as “Treason to the Government”?

    John Brown was mainly a hero to the zealously abolitionist types who prevented the slavery question from being handled without war. John Brown clearly wanted war, demanded war, and helped bring on a brutal, devastating, unnecessary war the scars of which still disfigure the fabric of our society. Brown was an overly zealous, violent, self-righteous fanatic who did not and does not deserve hero status. Au contraire, he has a river of American blood on his hands.

    Ironically, we still have slavery today, and globally it is apparently worse than ever. The October Reader’s Digest, pp. 140-141, says there are now 40,000 slaves in the United States and that “Experts say there are more people enslaved today [worldwide, I presume] than at any other time in history.”

    That is an N in NOT AGREE. A typo of the worst kind

  9. A pen   Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 2:49 PM

    Jan, the title to the article makes quite clear treason IS everwhere you look. It is the government that charges treason not the people.

    We as the governed only have the right to “throw off” a despotic government.

    The first amendment guarantees us the right to petition, to voice our concerns. Only in doing so can we legitimately proceed to the process of identifying the governments actions as not representative, not respectful of the constitution and intent on undertaking no redress.

    John Brown did not issue any petitions to demand redress and then set out the terms in which he claimed the right to throw off the government as it has become intolerable or nonrepresentative. He mainly took to the second amendment in order to arm legally disarmed persons. He alone decided the status of slaves as being citizens without even knowing they might not owe allegiance to the US after being granted full citizenship. History shows that many did not and do not to this day regard the US constitution as their supreme law nor have they assimilated from enclaves which was the hallmark of those who could not ever become loyal citizens. Politically instigated immigration has resulted in an increase of immigrant enclaves of the same disaffection toward the law. Are we to hang Sheriff Joe Arpaio for protecting AZ against a federal government in search of voters who will support it’s tyrannical grip in exchange for citizenship? A soon to be hollow victory for them as our economy crashes under the weight of excessive government.

    That I do hot agree that slavery was right I also do not agree it was right to do any other than repatriate all who had not earned freemanship or shown themselves to be of the good character wishing to remain as immigrants under that status. It is important to recognize the tolerance of all who would remain sovereigns on our soil such as the Chinese or the American Indian who to this day enjoy sovereignty and cultural respect without interferance. It is equally abusive of tribal peoples of any culture to be forced into a citizenship they neither want nor respectfully deserve. I suggest John Brown was short sighted with a big bleeding heart. The hole he helped dig is still entrapping many and has led to a dysfunctional government ready to fold all because of entitlement without requisite loyalty.

    Not that it matters to the overall theme of ‘Treason in the US Government’ but Neil Turner ought not to have inferred that John Brown’s actions were truly treasonous. He was a man who despised slavery, was religious, and when he was hanged (unlawfully, and out of bigoted ignorance) there was, belatedly, the voices of those who agreed with his actions to end slavery. The Headline to this story would indicate that Mr. Brown was a Benedict Arnold type of traitor. Au contraire, he was a hero in his time.

    Thank You, Constitutional Patriot!
    In the past two years how many multi-thousand gatherings took place in Washington D.C. to protest the negative behaviors and attitudes of federal elected officials since the illegal occupation of our White House by that illegal usurper? Two or three! Not a single one of those events ever brought up the Constitutional controversy pertaining to ARTICLE 2 SECTION 1 of the U.S. Constitution and because of Obama’s father never being A U.S. citizen! Have you ever studied psychology? A licensed psychologist would have to admit that this is not normal behavior! He would say …what in the heck is wrong with you people! Why are you hand-idly submitting yourself to the reduced rank of a slave to those who betray their promise to serve and uphold the U.S. Constitution! WHY DON’T YOU STAND UP TO THESE CORRUPT PEOPLE! What is wrong with you?

  12. johnny says   Saturday, September 18, 2010 at 5:49 PM

    i totally agree . if us millions of patriots and concerned citizens do not assemble and take action by putting our presence in washington and staying there until the usurpur is removed or resigns nothing will happen. not with this congress or the next either. the usurpur and congress do not care how much we sit around complaining and whining about how bad they are and the bad things they are doing. they will only worry when we come after them in large masses and force them into gridlock on obama eligibility..

  13. Harry H   Saturday, September 18, 2010 at 11:05 AM

    Neil Turner is right that “removing the Treasoner-in-Chief” is the key to stopping the treason. And it does not take impeachment or armed resistance to remove Obama. Assuming that the Democrat stranglehold on our government is broken on Nov. 2, consider what is possible in January:

    With Reid and Pelosi and their robots supplanted by people willing to follow the Constitution, congressional hearings can begin to ascertain once and for all whether Obama is eligible for office. Finding that he is not eligible, Congress then passes a joint resolution saying they have found that Obama suffers from a constitutional disability for office in that he does not qualify for that office and that therefore Section 3 of Amendment XX is hereby invoked.

    Amend. 20, Section 3 states ” . . . OR [emphasis added because that “or” is key] if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President . . . until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.”

    Clearly the Framers foresaw the possibility of removing an unqualified President after he had been elected. And it does not require impeachment and a trial. So the standard argument that since Obama won the election we have to live with it is false.

    If enough true patriots win election on Nov. 2, it is possible to hope for expedited congressional hearings and a finding that Barack Hussein Obama II does not qualify for the office he holds. If he did not then resign, his dictatorship would at least be out in the open, and perhaps the Joint Chiefs of Staff would then miraculously discover they needed a legitimate boss.

    I think Joe Biden could also be excluded since his tenure depends entirely on the unqualified Obama, and he might be prevailed upon to resign if Obama is removed. Then Congress could further follow Amend. 20 by “declaring who shall then act as President.”

  14. jtx   Saturday, September 18, 2010 at 9:43 AM

    In her most recent “ruling” Col. Lind freely violates the Constitution – does anyone care???

    She has made an implicit ruling that Obama is eligible to hold the office he now occupies … yet he has never shown himself to be eligible in any rigorous fashion. No judge or Supreme Court justice may overrule the U. S. Constitution; yet Lind did.

  15. NUTN2SAY   Saturday, September 18, 2010 at 8:38 AM

    What’s the point of this? Nobody will stand up and do that one single necessary thing that is needed to put a stop to this! We all just talk and chit chat and complain all the while our Constitutional freedoms are under attack and we slip further and further into being slaves to the government! There’s one hundred million of us voters to what… let’s say about a thousand of them and we can’t do our Constitutional duty of ousting them for their deliberate betrayals to you, me and the U.S. Constitution! The Founding Fathers gave to us a tool to use in cases such as this and nobody wants to pick it up! If you care about your freedoms and your future you have a choice….pick up that tool or be their slave, it’s your decision!

  16. Citizen Wells   Saturday, September 18, 2010 at 6:33 AM

    Keep up the good work.
    We must continue to spread the word about the LTC Terry Lakin court martial and Obama eligibility issues.
    Six degrees of separation. That’s all it takes.

    Neil, you are so right.. I had not considered the weightiness of Lind’s comments until I read your commentary.

    we’ve been under martial law for about a hundred years. Look at all th eflags in every goverment building including schools. They all have a gold fringe.



    The U.S. Attorney General has stated: “The placing of a gold fringe on the national flag, the dimensions of the flag, and the arrangements of the stars in the union are matters of detail not controlled by statute, but are within the discretion of the President as Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy. . .ancient custom sanctions the use of fringe on regimental colors and standards, but there seems to be no good reason or precedent for its use on other flags. . .the use of such a fringe is prescribed in current Army Regulations, No. 260-10.” (See 34 Ops. Atty. Gen. 483 & 485) The only statute or regulation, in the United States, prescribing a yellow fringed United States flag is Army Regulation No. 260-10, making it a military flag.

    By Army Regulation 260-10, the gold fringe may be used only on regimental “colors,” the President’s flag, for military courts martial, and the flags used at military recruiting centers. “A military flag emblem of a nation, usually made of cloth and flown from a staff; FROM A MILITARY STANDPOINT flags are of two general classes…those flown from stationary masts over army posts, and those carried by troops in formation. The former are referred to by the general name of flags. The later are called colors when carried by dismounted troops. COLORS AND STANDARDS are more nearly square than flags and are made of silk, with a knotted FRINGE OF YELLOW ON THREE SIDES. . .USE OF A FLAG — THE MOST GENERAL AND APPROPRIATE USE OF THE FLAG IS AS A NATIONAL SYMBOL OF AUTHORITY AND POWER.” (National Encyclopedia, Vol. 4)

    The adornments (FINIAL) on the top of the flag pole are for military use only. The gold eagle is for the use of the President of the United States only, and only in time of war. The gold spear ball is for military recruiting centers only. The gold acorn is for military parades only. (Army Regulation 840-10, chapter 8).

    Naturally the NWO would be a military junta. Who else could threaten the media and get away with it, congress, the senate, the federal courts and get away with it? That also explains the communists being represented on the Supreme court as well as the Spanish speaking world. I wonder which one is going to represent the Arabic world? The Chinese? Surely they will need a say in how the US is to be divided up economically. Between oil and walmart they already have their fair share though.

    I guess I’ll be a monkey’s uncle after all……
