Presidential speechwriter predicts military coup...


  I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

 John L. Perry is a neocon editor who wrote speeches for two presidential administrations. He says he thinks there will be a military coup that will replace President Obama with some hard-headed business men with a respect for the U.S. Constitution.

The President will become a handshaker, a backslapper, a ceremonial figurehead who lives in an 18th-century mansion and travels in a huge jet to make speeches, bestow gifts and receive ceremonial recognition from nations both friendly and not so friendly, according to Mr. Perry.

 He also says that the oath of enlistment taken by ordinary sailors, soldiers, Marines and Airmen does not contain the words "I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic..."

He is wrong about that.

The news report he wrote was taken down by the blogsite that originally published his words.

 Ho. Hum.

 What else is new?

 There was just such a coup planned by some hard headed business men in the year 1933. It failed when Gen. Smedley D. Butler of the U.S. Marines blew the whistle on the plotters in an appearance before a congressional committee.

 The plans they made for President Franklin Roosevelt fell through; he remained the President of the U.S. Nazi Germany was no longer a customer of the bankers and industrialists who initiated the failed coup. The world kept on turning.

 As to there never having been a coup against an American head of state, well, you know, I saw the President's head disappear in a pink mist on the courthouse square in a film made by a bystander on Nov. 22, 1963.

Then there was the small matter of President Abraham Lincoln becoming the last casualty of the Civil War, The War of Northern Aggression, The War Between the States - or whatever the historian you are reading may choose to call it.

 Lee Harvey Oswald was a military man, a Marine fresh back from a stint as a defector in the Soviet Union. John Wilkes Booth was an actor who worked for Confederate Army Intelligence as a spy and served as the paymaster for a close-knit group of conspirators.

 Just who is John L. Perry? He is an award-winning editor who has served as a speechwriter in two presidential administrations.

I am the Legendary Jim Parks and I am sincere. I shall see you on green or on the fantail, shipmate, but I don't aim to skin my story back. I don't have a dose of nothing. I got good skinny, hoss.

So mote it be.
