Newsmax Columnist: Military Coup May Be Needed ‘To Resolve The Obama Problem’

From TPM:

In a column published yesterday, Newsmax’s John L. Perry wrote that there is a “gaining” possibility that the military will stage a coup to “resolve the ‘Obama problem.'”

Newsmax has apparently removed the column from its site. Links are now redirected to the homepage, and Perry’s author page has no mention of his latest work. You can read the full text here.

The coup — which would be “civilized” and “bloodless,” according to Perry — would consist of a “patriotic general” sitting down with the President and working out a new system in which “skilled, military-trained, nation-builders” would “do the serious business of governing and defending the nation” while Obama would still be allowed to make speeches.


  1. So the elected president of the United States would be deposed by the people for whom he is the commander-in-chief?. The moment they take action to do that is, of course, the moment when they cease to have any status as military officers and become mutineers and traitors.

    As for “skilled, military trained nation builders”, I’ve yet to see any evidence of their existence, look how well the nations of Iraq and Afghanistan are doing, having been liberated and rebuilt by these military experts.

  2. Why does John L. Perry hate America?

    Kudos to Newsmax for showing that there actually is a point where they’ll draw the line.

    And kudos withdrawn for trying to explain Perry away as an “unpaid blogger” when he’s had a steady gig as a Newsmax columnist for years.

    Newsmax is an uber neo-conservative magazine and website. The current cover has Glenn Beck dressed up like Uncle Sam with the headline:
