The above is an excerpt from "The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012" , by Air Force Major General Charles J. Dunlap Jr., who retired in February 2010 as the Deputy Judge Advocate General, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C.

COUP OF 2012
Is it something to be taken seriously?
Yes, it is, even if one may be skeptical about just how likely to occur the developments that Dunlap points to really are.
It may come as a shock to you, but there have been attempted coups in the USA, and, apparently, one was quite recent. Try to keep an open mind, think INDEPENDENTLY, and put aside all "politics". This is about AMERICA, AMERICANS, ALL OF US, NOT JUST YOU, OKAY? THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN LEFT WING/RIGHT WING, FOLKS!
August 28, 2012
A Georgia prosecutor and federal authorities are offering differing responses to a possible plot by the [MILITARY] group to overthrow the government and assassinate President Barack Obama.
"As far as the evidence has shown, the motive for the murders was the overthrow of the government," District Attorney Tom Durden said.
"This wasn't barroom talk," Durden said, describing the men as part of an anarchist militia. "They amassed a good bit of weapons and explosive materials."
NON-mainstream media, aka, those NOT owned by the mega-Corporations who provide scripts to their PUPPETS, reported quite a bit more, the day before CNN spoke up. Even AP picked this up, it was posted on several websites at the time & the link ACTUALLY WORKED THEN, but doesn't now...dare we wonder why?
That news item was scrubbed REALLLLY well, as even Wayback Machine can't find it.
<<Hrm.Wayback Machine doesn't have that page archived.>>
Poof! All gone!
NO BIG DEAL, OTHERS REPORTED THE SAME THING, BUT AP's PULLING THAT IS IRRITATING, WHICH IS WHY I MENTIONED IT. THIS TYPE THING IS DONE WAY TOO OFTEN FOR MY TASTE.
Here's basically what AP reported:
<<A state prosecutor said on Monday that four U.S. soldiers had secret roles in a militia that planned to kill President Obama and take over the Fort Stewart Army base in Georgia.
The four soldiers, who served at Fort Stewart, were allegedly part of a group that went by the name F.E.A.R., or Forever Enduring Always Ready. The prosecutor said the members were inked with matching tattoos, and authorities have no idea if other people were part of the group, the report said.
No state or federal charges have been filed against any of the soldiers for their role in the alleged plot. The new revelations came to light in an ongoing murder case against the four soldiers in state court in Georgia.
One of the soldiers, Pfc. Michael Burnett, changed his plea in the case to guilty on charges of manslaughter and other crimes in the killing of a young couple last year and appeared prepared to testify against his fellow co-defendants.
One of the victims, Michael Roark, was a former soldier who served alongside the group at Fort Stewart and was reportedly part of the militia. The other victim was his girlfriend, Tiffany York. The remaining three soldiers, Sgt. Anthony Peden, Pvt. Isaac Aguigui and Pvt. Christopher Salmon, are still facing charges connected to the killing. Burnett testified at the court hearing in rural Long County, Ga., that the militia felt Roark had betrayed them by leaving the Army days before the killing and they saw him as “a loose end,” according to the Associated Press.
It’s not clear whether the plots to kill the president or take over Fort Stewart were advanced, but authorities have said the quartet stockpiled guns and other weapons.
Back in December when the four soldiers were first arrested, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives described them as a “loosely-knit group of individuals” who teamed up to buy the weapons.>>
August 29, 2012
MSN, CNN Wire, Israel National News, The Inquisitr.com , The Age , AND The Daily Telegraph ALL reported on 8/29/12 that:
"'Four US soldiers stand accused of plotting to assassinate Barack Obama and overthrow the government. The soldiers, who are members of an anarchist militia within the military, spent $87,000 on weapons. One of the soldiers has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and gang charges in the murders of former soldier Michael Roark and his 17-year-old girlfriend. A law enforcement official said the men had legally purchased at least 18 rifles and handguns in Washington and Georgia. '"
TIP OF THE ICEBERG?
<<A shocking new report prepared by the Foreign Military Intelligence Main Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, and circulating in the Kremlin today, states that President Obama has fired one of the United States Navy’s most powerful Admirals over growing fears the US Military is planning an overthrow of his government.
According to this report, yesterday (27 October, 2012) Obama ordered the immediate removal of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette from his command of the powerful Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3) currently located in the Middle East.
This GRU report, however, states that Admiral Gaouette’s firing by President Obama was due to this strike force commander disobeying orders when he ordered his forces on 11 September to “assist and provide intelligence for” American military forces ordered into action by US Army General Carter Ham, who was then the commander of the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM), against terrorist forces attacking the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
General Ham had been in command of the initial 2011 US-NATO military intervention in Libya who, like Admiral Gaouette, was fired by Obama. And as we can, in part, read from US military insider accounts of this growing internal conflict between the White House and US Military leaders:
“The information I heard today was that General [Carter] Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.
Rumor mill websites exploded after the Libyan Consulate attack, but quite a few MILITARY websites expressed their dismay and shock at the sudden turnover among the top brass.
[See: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/was-africom-general-replaced-for-his-efforts-to-save-benghazi-security-officials/ ]
And Arutz Sheva had this odd little news item posted on October 30, 2012, about Hurricane Sandy coming at a very opportune time, about the recent shakeup of the U.S. military after Benghazi, and ended with this strange statement:
<<If President Barack H. Obama tries to delay the November 6th election for one nanosecond, although he probably won't because he will want people to remember his dealing with the storm and not have time to remember Benghazi, then you know there has been a coup d’état of the American Republic.>>
The election was NOT delayed, top military commanders WERE replaced/fired/reprimanded and Petraeus, head of the CIA, but who was also another Middle Eastern ex-commander, was exposed for an affair.
It's well known that the Pentagon thinks Obama is too SOFT on going to war, on interfering in Syria, etc. and was totally pissed-off that BigO wanted to shut down GITMO (initially, at least), pull out of the Middle East (initially), and use diplomacy and talks to address the Iranian issue.
Half of America seems to feel the same...we call that half "Republicans", though many who like the thoughts of a NEW war to "improve the financial standing of the corporations who provide weaponry, etc, for defense", and a HUGE profit for investors in those companies, are Democrats. Depends on where your 'loyalty' lies as to the WAR MACHINE, yes?
So, did Iran and Israel also know about the coup attempt planned by U.S. military?
Or is this just rumor?
IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE!!!
The Cuban Missile Crisis almost caused a US military coup
The Pentagon’s Joint Chiefs of Staff insisted to President Kennedy that a preemptive surgical strike of Cuba was the only way to respond to the Soviet Union’s placement of missiles in Cuba.
Defense Secretary Robert McNamara instead proposed the idea of a US Navy “quarantine” of the island. (US officials avoided using the word “blockade” because it’s an overt act of war.)
[THIS WAS WHEN THE OPERATION NORTHWOODS [SEE EXCERPTS AT THE END OF THIS BLOG] WAS OFFERED. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THAT PIECE OF WORK, DO SO! IT PERFECTLY OUTLINES A 9/11 SCENARIO, TO BE BLAMED ON CUBA!]
The Joint Chiefs “were not at all happy with this,” says Robert Pastor, director of the Center for North American Studies at American University in Washington. These Pentagon officials “were prepared to go to war if the Soviets had not accepted the withdrawal of the missiles.”
US officials later learned that had the US military invaded Cuba, the Soviets were prepared to launch tactical nuclear weapons at the US, adds Dr. Pastor, who was national security adviser on Latin America in the late ’70s and McNamara’s son-in-law.
Robert Kennedy recalled in his memoirs that “the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff were unanimous in railing for immediate military action” and “forcefully presented their view that the blockade would not be effective.”
Air Force Gen. Curtis LeMay in particular “strongly argued with the president that a military attack was essential,” according to the Robert Kennedy memoirs.
The memoirs also say that the State Department proceeded with preparations “for a crash program on civil government in Cuba to be established after the invasion and occupation of the country” and that McNamara reported the military’s conclusion that “we should expect very heavy casualties in the invasion.”
President Kennedy ultimately decided on a blockade.
During negotiations with the Soviets, however, Robert Kennedy warned them that “there were indeed people in the Pentagon that would take action if Kennedy did not – that there could be a military coup,” Pastor says, adding that Robert Kennedy “wasn’t bluffing.”
After the crisis, McNamara went to the president and said, “We need to replace LeMay and [Chief of Naval Operations Adm. George Whelan] Anderson. They were both insubordinate, and we need to send a clear message on that,” Pastor says. “Bob McNamara told me this personally.”
The president told McNamara that for political reasons, he could only publicly discipline one person and told McNamara to choose. McNamara picked Anderson, whom Kennedy then nominated to be ambassador to Portugal.
Robert Kennedy for his part reflected on the president’s discussion with the US military leaders in his memoirs. “Like all meetings of this kind, certain statements were made as accepted truisms which I, at least, thought were of questionable validity. One member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for example, argued that we could use nuclear weapons, on the basis that our adversaries would use theirs against us in an attack,” he recalled.
“I thought, as I listened, of the many times that I had heard the military take positions which, if wrong, had the advantage that no one would be around at the end to know.”
ATTEMPT TO OVERTHROW FDR
In 1934 General Smedley D. Butler went public after he was approached by Wall Street and offered up to 300 million dollars to lead an army of 500,00 veterans equipped with munitions from Remington Arms Company to Washington D.C., in order to overthrow the U.S. Government by force. The plot was investigated by the McCormack-Dickstein committee, which found General Butler to be telling the truth.
School texts ... are uniquely silent about the powerful Americans who plotted to seize the White House with a private army, hold President Franklin D. Roosevelt prisoner, and get rid of him if he refused to serve as their puppet in a dictatorship they planned to impose and control."
The backing of the revolution reportedly came from the American Liberty League, which was headed by Morgan and DuPont. "Heavy contributors," says Archer, also included, "the Pitcairn family (Pittsburgh Plate Glass), Andrew W. Mellon Associates, Rockefeller Associates, E. F. Hutton Associates, William S. Knudsen (General Motors), and the Pew family (Sun Oil Associates)." The online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, added, "General Butler claimed that the American Liberty League was the primary means of funding the plot. The main backers were the DuPont family, as well as leaders of U.S. Steel, General Motors, Standard Oil, Chase National Bank, and Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company."
ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTATION OF FDR COUP ATTEMPT, added 01/15/2013 below:
In 1934, retired Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler testified to the Special Committee on Un-American Activities Congressional committee (the "McCormack-Dickstein Committee") on this coup attempt. [Schlesinger, p. 85] In the opinion of the committee, these allegations were credible. [Schlesinger, p. 83] No one was ever prosecuted.
When the committee's final report was released, the New York Times said the committee "purported to report that a two-month investigation had convinced it that General Butler's story of a fascist march on Washington was alarmingly true" and "It also alleged that definite proof had been found that the much publicized Fascist march on Washington, which was to have been led by Major. Gen. Smedley D. Butler, retired, according to testimony at a hearing, was actually contemplated."["Gen. Butler Bares 'Fascist Plot' To Seize Government by Force; Says Bond Salesman, as Representative of Wall St. Group, Asked Him to Lead Army of 500,000 in March on Capital – Those Named Make Angry Denials – Dickstein Gets Charge.". The New York Times: 1. 1934-11-2] [Also see: The New York Times February 16, 1935. p. 1, "It also alleged that definite proof had been found that the much publicized Fascist march on Washington, which was to have been led by Major. Gen. Smedley D. Butler, retired, according to testimony at a hearing, was actually contemplated. The committee recalled testimony by General Butler, saying he had testified that Gerald C. MacGuire had tried to persuade him to accept the leadership of a Fascist army."]
Butler later said that the committee had deliberately edited out of its published findings the leading business people whom he had named in connection with the plot. He said on February 17, 1935, on Radio WCAU, "Like most committees it has slaughtered the little and allowed the big to escape. The big shots weren't even called to testify. They were all mentioned in the testimony. Why was all mention of these names suppressed from the testimony?"[BBC Radio 4 Document "The White House Coup – Greenham's Hidden Secret"]
The Congressional committee preliminary report said:
"'This committee has had no evidence before it that would in the slightest degree warrant calling before it such men as John W. Davis, Gen. Hugh Johnson, General Harbord, Thomas W. Lamont, Admiral Sims, or Hanford MacNider....
This committee received evidence from Maj. Gen Smedley D. Butler (retired), twice decorated by the Congress of the United States. He testified before the committee as to conversations with one Gerald C. MacGuire in which the latter is alleged to have suggested the formation of a fascist army under the leadership of General Butler.
MacGuire denied these allegations under oath, but your committee was able to verify all the pertinent statements made by General Butler, with the exception of the direct statement suggesting the creation of the organization. This, however, was corroborated in the correspondence of MacGuire with his principal, Robert Sterling Clark, of New York City, while MacGuire was abroad studying the various forms of veterans organizations of Fascist character.[See: 74th Congress House of Representatives Report, pursuant to House Resolution No. 198, 73d Congress, February 15, 1935. Quoted in: George Seldes, 1000 Americans (1947), pp. 290–292. See also Schmidt, p. 245]
The BBC's online précis for its documentary program 'The White House Coup' said, "The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D. Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans." [ BBC Radio 4 Document "The White House Coup – Greenham's Hidden Secret"] The program connected major companies to the American Liberty League, formed by Al Smith, who, the program asserted, was to be the fascist ruler.[http://www.archive.org/details/TheWhitehouseCoup]
Under great pressure to jail and charge with treason many top U.S. Military officers after the failed 1933 coup attempt, this report says, Roosevelt, instead, opted to simply oust those Generals and other high-ranking officers in order to spare his country 'the turmoil such a revelation would cause among the American people'.
BURN THESE NAMES INTO YOUR MEMORY BANKS! REMEMBER THEM!
AND REMEMBER TO WHOM THEY APPEALED FOR HELP...HIGH-BRASS MILITARY!
IF THERE EVER WAS A MILITARY COUP IN AMERICA, TRUST ME, YOU WOULD NOT WANT TO BE AROUND IN THE AFTERMATH. THE PRICE OF FREEDOM IS ETERNAL VIGILANCE! WE MUST ALL BE WATCHMEN ON THE WALL.
AS A P.S., here is an "OPERATION NORTHWOODS" excerpt,
BECAUSE THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR AMERICANS TO KNOW. THE FOLLOWING IS TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM A DECLASSIFIED DOCUMENT AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD, TYPOS APPEAR JUST AS THEY DID IN 1962. YOU NEED TO REMEMBER THAT THIS WAS ENTIRELY "DOABLE"/POSSIBLE IN 1962, SO IMAGINE WHAT WAS 'DOABLE" IN 2001!:
From Page 13 of the actual document:
7. Hijacking attempts against civil air and surface craft
should appear to continue as harassing measures condoned by the
government of Cuba. Concurrently, genuine defections of Cuban
civil and military air and surface craft should be encouraged.
8. It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate
convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down
a chartered civil airliner enroute from the United States to
Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama or Venezuela. The destination would
be chosen only to cause the flight plan route to cross Cuba.
The passengers could be a group of college students off on a
holiday or any grouping of persons with a common interest to
support chartering a non-scheduled flight.
a. An aircraft at Eglin AFB would be painted and
numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered
aircraft belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the
Miami area. At a designated time the duplicate would be
subsituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be
loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under
carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered
aircraft would be converted to a drone.
b. Take off times of the drone aircraft and the actual
aircraft will be scheduled to allow a rendezvous south of
Florida. From the rendezvous point the passenger-carrying
aircraft will descend to minimum altitude and go directly
into an auxiliary field at Eglin AFB where arrangements will
have been made to evacuate the passengers and return the
aircraft to its original status. The drone aircraft
meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When
over Cuba the drone will being transmitting on the inter-
national distress frequency a "MAY DAY" message stating he
is under attack by Cuban MIG aircraft. The transmission
will be interrupted by the destruction of aircraft which will
be triggered by radio signal. This will allow IACO radio
stations in the Western Hemisphere to tell the US what
has happened to the aircraft instead of the US trying to
"sell" the incident.
9. It is possible to create an incident which will make it
appear that Communist Cuban MIGs have destroyed a USAF aircraft
over international waters in an unprovoked attack.
a. Approximately 4 of 5 F-101 aircraft will be dispatched
in trail from Homestead AFB, Florida, to the vicinity of Cuba.
Their mission will be to reverse course and simulate fakir
aircraft for an air defense exercise in southern Florida.
These aircraft would conduct variations of these flights at
frequent intervals. Crews would be briefed to remain at
least 12 miles off the Cuban coast; however, they would be
required to carry live ammunition in the event that hostile
actions were taken by the Cuban MIGs.
b. On one such flight, a pre-briefed pilot would fly
tail-end Charley at considerable interval between aircraft.
While near the Cuban Island this pilot would broadcast that
he had been jumped by MIGs and was going down. No other
calls would be made. The pilot would then fly directly
west at extremely low altitude and land at a secure base, an
Eglin auxiliary. The aircraft would be met by the proper
people, quickly stored and given a new tail number. The
pilot who had performed the mission under an alias, would
resume his proper identity and return to his normal place
of business. The pilot and aircraft would then have
c. At precisely the same time that the aircraft was
presumably shot down a submarine or small surface craft
would disburse F-101 parts, parachute, etc., at approximately
15 to 20 miles off the Cuban coast and depart. The pilots
retuning to Homestead would have a true story as far as
they knew. Search ships and aircraft could be dispatched
and parts of aircraft found.
