A recent poll conducted by YouGov revealed that a sizable portion of the American public is open to the idea of a military coup in the United States. The poll was conducted amid the continual polling that takes place during the U.S. Presidential election yet it did not focus on the elections per se, but the potential lack of elections in the future.
The YouGov poll surveyed 1,000 people online and determined that 29% of Americans, over a quarter of the population, could imagine supporting a military coup against the civilian government. Only 41% could not imagine supporting a coup.
The numbers supporting a potential coup were highest among Republicans with 43% of them saying they could envision supporting a coup, 29% of independents followed, with Democrats trailing at 20%.
The numbers apparently increased in support when the question asked “whether they would hypothetically support the military stepping in to take control from a civilian government which is beginning to violate the constitution.”
Critics of the polls have suggested that the method used to conduct the survey was largely unscientific and not a reasonable representation of an accurate sampling of the general American public.
Regardless of how it was conducted, the real question here is “Why was this poll conducted in the first place?” Why are Americans being asked if they would support a military coup? After all, in the past, whenever a critic of the government would suggest such a possibility, that individual was laughed off the stage as being paranoid and hyperbolic. We are told military coups are not an option in the United States and, being the exceptional nation, we are outside of history. We are told that the very idea that a military coup could ever take place is laughable. So, why the poll?
Indeed, as the TWSP has asked, “Who commissioned it? Was it ordered up by a clique of ambitious and disgruntled military men eager to redeem their defeats on the battlefield with some kind of seizure of power here in the United States? Up to now, we do not know these answers.”
The question is thus: Are the American people being prepped to accept a military coup in the United States and the subsequent martial law that will almost inevitably follow such a seizure of power?
Was this poll conducted for the benefit of the oligarchs who would perpetuate this coup? Not likely, since the Pentagon and the Military-Government-Intelligence apparatus already has extravagant ways of knowing whether or not the American people are receptive to coups. Was it merely an exercise in predictive programming and trend setting polling data – the same method that is used in color revolutions – to create a sense of social consensus and promote the idea that the majority supports a specific idea?
But the United States is not the only country that has had talk of military coups as of late. Upon the election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the UK Labor Party, a “senior serving general” opined that, if Corbyn was ever elected as Prime Minister, the military might simply remove him from power.
“A senior serving general, speaking anonymously to the Sunday Times, said Mr. Corbyn’s victory has been greeted with ‘wholesale dismay’ in the army.”
“There would be mass resignations at all levels and you would face the very real prospect of an event which would effectively be a mutiny.
‘Feelings are running very high within the armed forces. You would see a major break in convention with senior generals directly and publicly challenging Corbyn over vital important policy decisions such as Trident, pulling out of NATO and any plans to emasculate and shrink the size of the armed forces…
The Army just wouldn’t stand for it. The general staff would not allow a prime minister to jeopardize the security of this country and I think people would use whatever means possible, fair or foul to prevent that. You can’t put a maverick in charge of a country’s security.’”
Corbyn’s plans and “reforms” are relatively mild on many accounts. However, that is apparently enough to justify the seizure of total power by the military in the minds of some. It also echoes the past claims by retired Army Gen. Paul E. Vallely, a friend of accused pedophile and avowed Satanist Michael Aquino, that he had answered a call asking if he would lead a coup against the civilian government if he were provided with 250,000 marines. Vallely responded that, yes, he would indeed lead a coup if the conditions were right.
While it remains to be seen what plans are being set in motion for the future of civilian governments in the United States and the UK, it is greatly concerning that convenient polls regarding military coups are being conducted and disseminated amongst the public while serving and retired military officials talk openly of the same act of treason. As discontent grows with higher unemployment, increased immigration, more foreign wars, higher food prices, and lower living standards, it is apparent that the ruling elite in both the United States and the UK – actually one and the same – are preparing to ensure that such discontent will be crushed and that no reforms, however modest, will ever be allowed to move forward.
Americans and British people must understand what is at stake before it is too late.
Well, well, well, aren’t we seeing a massive turnaround of late. Putin was so sharp, calm and truthful at the UN and other recent speeches and interviews compared to the same old Amerikan false bravado diatribe it was like having a clean shower after swimming through a cesspool.
And the whole free world feels the same.
What I admire about him is his cool demeanor and very artful tact in how he approaches massively sensitive subjects. He has to cloak it in “diplomati-speak” of course to reach the type of audience within those bound up layers of communication, but he does it masterfully. You don’t sense the BS factor and full on propagandized deception you get from the Obamaramadingdong script reading puppet.
I know the whirled stage is just that, but nothing’s written in stone and there are always “free floating radicals”. Whatever engineered plans are afoot, there’s always plenty of room for error in their programming – as well as their assumption that the rest of the world will automatically buy into it as they imperiously assume.
It reminds me of the Donald Trump phenomenon. At first people thought he’d fizzle and pop and we’d be back to the same old cardboard corporate cut out options in the US theater of absurdity . But now he’s got so much traction, again due to his fresh honesty vs the bullshit factor of mainstream sewage, that the big boys are trying desperately to co-opt the wild Trump card, controlled opposition being their tactic of choice as we know. Now you can watch them scramble to contribute to his popularity – but rest assured they’re busy trying to bore their evil, poisonous beaks into their new would-be host if they can.
The Worm Has Turned
I’m not under any illusion that most of what we are witnessing on a daily basis isn’t massively manipulated. However, humanity is awakening and we cannot limit it in any way, shape or form in how it manifests. The “powers that shouldn’t be” have been imploding for some time while stepping up this almost comical show of force in all forms.
The following presentations are extremely powerful if you listen closely to the tone, clarity and sense of moral authority very rarely seen on the world stage.
The game has shifted, the worm has turned.
The first video is previous to the recent UN speech, which follows, but I found it profoundly honest and truthful, as well as tactful and giving room for those he’s addressing to come to an understanding of the error of their ways. It so elevated my understanding of how blatantly obvious the western axis of evil has become in the eyes of so many, yet they too lack the clarion call to point out the emperor has no clothes. – and all his puppet soldiers are simply paid-for mercenaries.
Now Putin’s powerful recent presentation at the UN:
Finally, a brilliant analysis of the overall situation and American psychopathy.
Our Power to Co-create Reality
This is a major shift I think we can take great encouragement in. As we know, it takes a type of critical mass to move society to look honestly at what is going on and adopt a new paradigm on a major scale. When a major world figures calls out this courageously the abject wrongness of the reality that the masses are being told is necessary and it must adhere to, and in such calm yet bold and action-reinforced clarity, it speaks volumes and sends a very strong signal.
Waking up, at all levels, usually involves startling revelations of truth, very often ones already right in front of our faces, yet we were virtually hypnotized to not understand but rather accept as our inevitable fate in some form.
This man, however you may perceive this whole world stage, is causing just that type of mass awakening. And acting on it. Even now they’ve warned Americans to get out of Syria as they launch very real retaliations on this hoard of western hired mercenaries threatening the dear people of Syria and the entire region.
No doubt the rabid west and Israel and their proxy states will step up their desperate, hysterical and genocidal attacks to confuse the issue, and try to provoke a greater confrontation. As their dying beast writhes in the throes of exposure to the light of truth and public awareness, the forces of darkness will make their move.
It’s inevitable to some extent, sorry to say. They’re psychopaths.
Let’s hope the global awakening can stir the world to take appropriate action in every form possible to stay the situation and bypass this pre-planned insanity potentially leading to a major confrontation, the WW3 scenario that is apparently in their agenda.
It seems earth’s inhabitants are being given a chance to help avoid this.
It’s Up To Each of Us
But never let your guard down. We know who and what are waiting in the wings to fill any and every vacuum created by engineered or unplanned changes. That’s their M.O.
However, an awakened populace will not go back to sleep. Remember, anything and everything is possible. These recent major turns of events may just cause such an uprising in consciousness at very high levels as well as throughout society that could cause a major shift to happen.
It’s up to us. Blindly following the trend du jour is what has led to humanity’s captivity. Let’s all lead by living our lives in full on awareness, in loving intention with steeled determination, and getting the truth out there.
On Thursday, the organization’s Broadband Commission for Digital Development released a damning “world-wide wake-up call” on what it calls “cyber VAWG,” or violence against women and girls. The report concludes that online harassment is “a problem of pandemic proportion” — which, nbd, we’ve all heard before.
But the United Nations then goes on to propose radical, proactive policy changes for both governments and social networks, effectively projecting a whole new vision for how the Internet could work.
Under U.S. law — the law that, not coincidentally, governs most of the world’s largest online platforms — intermediaries such as Twitter and Facebook generally can’t be held responsible for what people do on them. But the United Nations proposes both that social networks proactively police every profile and post, and that government agencies only “license” those who agree to do so.
People are being harassed online, and the solution is to censor everything and license speech? Remarkable.
How that would actually work, we don’t know; the report is light on concrete, actionable policy. But it repeatedly suggests both that social networks need to opt-in to stronger anti-harassment regimes and that governments need to enforce them proactively.
At one point toward the end of the paper, the U.N. panel concludes that “political and governmental bodies need to use their licensing prerogative” to better protect human and women’s rights, only granting licenses to “those Telecoms and search engines” that “supervise content and its dissemination.”
So we’re supposed to be lectured about human rights from an organization that named Saudi Arabia head of its human rights panel? Got it.
Regardless of whether you think those are worthwhile ends, the implications are huge: It’s an attempt to transform the Web from a libertarian free-for-all to some kind of enforced social commons.
This U.N. report gets us no closer, alas: all but its most modest proposals are unfeasible. We can educate people about gender violence or teach “digital citizenship” in schools, but persuading social networks to police everything their users post is next to impossible. And even if it weren’t, there are serious implications for innovation and speech: According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, CDA 230 — the law that exempts online intermediaries from this kind of policing — is basically what allowed modern social networks (and blogs, and comments, and forums, etc.) to come into being.
If we’re lucky, perhaps the Saudi religious police chief (yes, they have one) who went on a rampage against Twitter a couple of years ago, will be available to head up the project.
