Obama Admin Official Calls To Physically Remove Trump From Office Using Military If He Refuses To Leave After 2020 Defeat [Flashback]


Opinion| On Saturday, an op-ed piece was published by liberally-run CNN, which was penned by a former Obama White House official who is calling for planning, which includes the United States Military as well as state rebellions, if President Donald Trump will not “peacefully” leave his post as President if he does not win the 2020 election and will not accept the results of the election.

The Gateway Pundit explains that, “While the Obama official does not use the phrase ‘civil war,’ it is the name for the rebellion of states and the military that he calls for if Trump will not ‘peacefully’ hand over the reins of government on January 20,2021 following an election defeat. Curiously, the op-ed comes the day after a 2018 election for  a Congressional seat in North Carolina was vacated due to fraud and a new election ordered to take place by the State Board of Elections.”

The op-ed piece was titled, “What If Trump Refuses to Accept Defeat in 2020?” It was written by Joshua A. Geltzer, who spent time serving at the National Security Council for the last two years that Barack Obama was in office, and as the Gateway Pundit alleges, the “Obama administration abused the national security apparatus of the federal government to spy on the Trump campaign in order to thwart Trump’s election and, failing that, to then try to stop Trump’s inauguration and, failing that, to try to bring about his removal from office through impeachment or the 25th Amendment.”

Geltzer brings up the idea that President Trump wouldn’t “peacefully” leave his post over and over again in the op-ed. He didn’t exactly call for people to remove Trump with force, but it seems evident that he is looking for action by the military’s leaders if Trump won’t leave “peacefully.”  How else can this be interpreted?  It sounds to me like he is calling on the military to depose Trump (if Congress certifies an election loss and he refuses to accept the result of the vote), how do militaries depose people?  By force.

He shared the op-ed piece on Twitter writing, “What if Donald Trump loses in 2020 but won’t leave the Oval Office peacefully? There’s real reason to worry. I offer via four things we can do NOW to get ahead of this threat to our democracy:”

The following are excerpts from the op-ed:

President Donald Trump’s critics are increasingly focused on the question of which Democrat will challenge him for the presidency in 2020. It’s an important question, but another one might be even more important: Regardless of who runs in 2020, if Trump loses, will he leave the Oval Office peacefully?

Let’s start with why we need to ask this question: Trump is increasingly proving himself to be a President eager to overstep his authority. Just last week, Trump displayed his willingness to invoke unprecedented presidential power to declare a national emergency utterly without justification. This week has brought a startling report from the New York Times that, for the past two years, Trump has tried to undermine the investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and other parts of the Justice Department in order to, in the words of the Times, “make the president’s many legal problems go away.” In light of these overreaching assertions of his own authority, it’s at least plausible that Trump might attempt to cling to power in ways previously unimaginable by an American president.

Fourth, our civilian and uniformed Defense Department leaders have a role to play. The health of our democracy rests, in part, on not involving the military in transfers of power. And that should continue. But imagine the most extreme scenario, with Congress certifying Trump’s defeat but Trump refusing to leave office. In those circumstances, the military would no longer owe its loyalty to Donald Trump as of noon on January 20, 2021. And it’s worth asking the Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as they testify before Congress in coming months, to affirm that they understand that and would act consistently with it.

After reading this piece it sure seems like the left has a plan to depose Trump in 2020, one way or another.  The time to drain the swamp is now.

What do you think will happen if Trump is deposed?

Stay in the present. Presumptiousness gets you no where. So far, all hoaxes have been based on fallacies. Why did Obama park himself a few miles from White House, well gated and guarded. Why is he so prepared before the launching of this administration? What is he hiding that he needs to be so close? No President has ever done this, why?

These people crack me up! First it was, "Trump MUST accept the election results! If he doesn't, he is un-American!", Then it was, "Trump won! We can't accept that!" Then, Trump MUST accept the findings of the bi-partisan congressional investigation!" Then, "We can't accept that finding of nothing by the bi-partisan investigation! We must investigate more!" Then, "Trump MUST accept the findings of the Mueller investigation!" Now it is, "We can't accept the Mueller findings! We must investigate more!" When will these dingalings get it? THEY are the ones who are unwilling to accept anything, even their own rigged elections and investigations.

The DNC mantra has been to create chaos and go after President Trump for his every word and action. The democrats haven't done what they were elected to do as far as representing their districts. Talk about calling the kettle black....they haven't accepted the results of the last general election and the only way they made any headway in the 2018 midterm election was to due to the many fraudlent voters. They can't win if they don't cheat, manipulate and lie to get what they want.

If President Trump does not win in 2020 he will step down he is an honorable man. This is so stupid it is laughable the Democrats have lost their minds.

Embarrassing. When's the 'What if Obama leads a killing spree murdering white people' Op Ed? These people are so desperate in their efforts to denigrate the sitting president that now they'll try to fan the flames of discord with completely hypothetical rhetoric with no thought to how divisive their actions are. When 2020 comes, the people will speak. Mr. Trump, who has been a more effective president than anyone the left has fielded for decades, has given no indication that he wouldn't abide by that decision. Indeed, it's been the left all along that has demonstrated that they can't accept the results of an election and, now that they've passed enough of their own kool-aide around, they've convinced themselves that simply refusing to leave the office might be standard fare for a sitting president. In other words, much like lying, this is considered common behavior. In any case, Mr. Geltzer should take a closer look at Mr. Trump's results, and in particular, his respect and admiration for our military - something the left hasn't fielded in many, many years. As the Commander in Chief, Mr. Trump's most likely actions would, obviously, be to respect the position and graciously leave the office, for good or bad, in deference to the voice of the people. If, for some reason, he didn't or couldn't, though - don't be too sure, Mr. Geltzer, which side the military might support. They are, after all, sworn to protect our country from threats both foreign and domestic. After the last two years of the embarrassing and often damaging antics of the left, you certainly seem bent on adopting that role.

If you mean fighting in the streets, mob violence, protesting, demands that are outrageous, courts that are politically motivated and complete loss of common sense? This describes the US since the election of 2016, and if the Democrats lose until 2024.

What makes you think Trump will lose running against any of the Democrat lib Fu*ks running.
