The "Elite" Coup Of 2016
By Moon Of Alabama
- There is
an "elite" coup attempt underway against the U.S.
- The coup
is orchestrated by the camp of Hillary Clinton in
association with the CIA and neoconservative powers
- The plan
is to use the CIA's "Russia made Trump the winner"
nonsense to swing the electoral college against him.
The case would then be bumped up to Congress. Major
neocon and warmonger parts of the Republicans could
then move the presidency to Clinton or, if that
fails, put Trump's vice president-elect Mike Pence
onto the throne. The regular bipartisan war
business, which a Trump presidency threatens to
interrupt, could continue.
- Should the
coup succeed violent insurrections in the United
States are likely to ensue with unpredictable
theses are thus far only a general outlay. No general
plan has been published. The scheme though is pretty
obvious by now. However, the following contains some
aim is to deny Trump the presidency. He is too
independent and a danger for several power centers
within the ruling U.S. power circles. The selection of
Tillerson as new Secretary of State only reinforces this
(Prediction: Bolton will not get the Deputy position.)
Tillerson is for profitable stability, not for regime
change adventures. The institutional Trump enemies are:
- The CIA
which has become the Central Assassination Agency
under the Bush and Obama administrations. Huge parts
of its budgets depend on a continuation of the war
on Syria and the drone assassination campaigns in
Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere. Trump's more
isolationist policies would likely end these
campaigns and the related budget troughs.

to its major customers in the Persian Gulf should a
President Trump reduce U.S. interference in the
Middle East and elsewhere.
neoconservatives and Likudniks who want the U.S. as
Israel's weapon to strong arm the Middle East to the
general war hawks, military and "humanitarian
interventionists" to whom any reduction of the U.S.
role as primary power in the world is anathema to
The current CIA
director Brennan, a leading figure of the CIA torture
program and Obama consigliere, is in the
Clinton/anti-Trump camp. The former CIA heads Hayden and
Panetta are public Clinton supporters as is torturer
king and former CIA deputy director Michael Morell.
It is thereby
no wonder that the CIA is leading the anti-Russian
campaign. Its task now is to implant the idea in the
U.S. public that Russian intervention skewed the U.S.
election towards Trump. The purpose is the
delegitimization of the Trump victory in the eyes of the
media and public but even more so in the eyes of the
electors within the electoral college.
The CIA is
heavily supported by the same mainstream media that
pushed for Clinton during the election. (These are, not
by chance, also the same media that pushed the CIA's
earlier "Saddam's Weapon of Mass Destruction" campaign.)
partisan and Harvard law Professor Lawrence Lessig is
pushing the electors and
offers them free personal legal support. He says the
electoral college vote is now close.
Republican electors, put there by voters in their states
to vote for Trump, be convinced to move from electing
Trump to abstain or vote for someone else, Trump
would miss the needed 270 votes. The whole election
of the president would then by kicked up to the House of
electors vote for Trump there is still a possibility
that members of the House and the Senate could
officially question that vote and cause delays or
Congressional probes and legal challenges.
Here are the
detailed general proceedings and specifics for the
electoral college as explained by the National
Archives and Records Administration.
neoconservatives have no genuine support within the U.S.
electorate they have a strong hold on significant parts
of Congress and the relevant MSM commentariat. Many
leading neoconservatives and war hawks like Robert
Kagan, Max Boot and the Washington Post editorial board
came out for Clinton during the campaign. Clinton even
advertisements with Republican Congress luminaries
like Lindsay Graham, Sasse and Flake.
The House and
the Senate majority may well be on the anti-Trump side
if push comes to shove. But whatever the outcome there
surely would be intense legal challenges and I expect
the case to go up to the Supreme Court.
alternative to legal shenanigans Trump's inauguration
could be delayed by Obama's order to the intelligence
community to create a formal review of Russian
intervention in the election by January 20. That is not
by chance the official inauguration date! The
By ordering a
“full review” of allegations of Russian into the
2016 election process, President Barack Obama is
essentially asking the IC to make an
analytical judgment about the validity of the
election that will place Trump in the Oval
in Congress could be to wait for the Intelligence
Community's analysis and then discuss it before
certifying Trump as president. That would end up with no
result as National Intelligence Estimates are
notoriously vague. Meanwhile the Vice President-elect
sit in as acting President:
President-elect fails to qualify before
inauguration, Section 3 of the 20th
Amendment states that the Vice President-elect will
act as President until such a time as a President
congressional or legal process around the Trump election
gets delayed, that may be a state for a long time. The
ruling Washington blob or borg could well live with an
acting President Pence while Trump would have no
official say in any government business. (Could Clinton
then become acting VP or qualify as the new president?)
intervention on the anti-Trump side is heavy.
But first keep
in mind that there is no public evidence, ZERO, that
Russia indeed had anything to do with the DNC or Podesta
or other leaks and the publication of emails by various
outlets like Wikileaks.
assures us that he knows that these were not hacks but
insider leaks and that he knows the leaker(s).
Indeed he now tells us that the emails were
handed over to him during a visits in Washington.
Former intelligence officials including the technically
very knowledgeable former NSA official William Binney
concur that the hacking story is false.
All we have
heard or seen so far are hearsay rumors and allegations
of evidence. To me as experienced IT professional the
case is technically laughable just as Murray
explains here. If the claimed hacks occurred at all
the alleged methods were so common that anybody could
have done these. There is not even one claimed fact yet
that is technically halfway acceptable as evidence that
"Russia did it".
But still the
NYT runs a big package of pieces
telling us that "Russia did it" based on the
non-factual CIA rumors and unprofessional IT assertions
by Crowdstrike, the self-promoting IT security company
the DNC hired and paid. Before that the Washington Post
major claims of Russian interference by anonymous
officials. NBC News now
tops that with "intelligence officials" saying Putin
himself ran the hacking campaign. Authors of the story
are the long time insider hacks Bill Arkin and Ken
known for clearing his stories with the CIA before
publishing. The next story will tells us that Vladimir
Valdimirovich himself was punching the keyboard.

op-eds in the major papers are pushing the scheme along.
Just for example from a long list A.J. Dionne
in the Washington Post:
finding that Russia actively intervened in our
election to make Trump president is an excellent
reason for the electors to consider whether they
should exercise their independent power. At the very
least, they should be briefed on what the CIA knows,
and in particular on whether there is any evidence
that Trump or his lieutenants were engaged with
Russia during the campaign.

have voted for Trump would be disgusted and outraged if
or when Trump will be denied his office. Many of them
are armed and would protest. Violence is ensured should
