Newsmax, a conservative “news site” that is probably more like “Faux News” (Fox News) than CNN or MSNBC, and definitely is not “fair and balanced,” published a column by John L. Perry yesterday that stated there is a “gaining” possibility that the military will stage a coup to “resolve the ‘Obama problem.'”
While it’s been reported that the column has been removed, and references to it removed from Perry’s author’s page, as well. Additionally, the site noted that it removed the article after readers complained (which shows even among Newsmax readers there is some sanity).

The full text of the article can be found here. Part of the article is below:
Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.
The right-wing continues to use scare words such as Marxism, communism, fascism or socialism. The problem with those who accept their scare tactics is they have no idea what the words really mean. However, they do associate the words with Stalin and the U.S.S.R., or Hitler and Nazi Germany, without understanding how ludicrous such links are.
If nothing else, the protectionist stance of the administration with regards to the insurance industry shows that’s not the case. They wouldn’t be embracing capitalism, if so. Oh, and I love the logic: “our constitution is in jeopardy, so we’ll form a new government with our military in charge.” Yeah, that sounds really nice.
