No danger of that happening here, right?

The rapidity that the stars are accumulating on this post is alarming. Rather than try to argue that no dictator who has ever come to power was elected before orchestrating a coup following the steps I outlined, you jumped on an historical technicality. Is it or is it not possible for an elected President to stage a coup to stay in power?
Yes. It is possible.
Rather unlikely in America though. Just don't see it happening. That's the sort of thing that happens in South America or Africa.
And once again the political realities of America 2017 and Germany 1932 are worlds apart.

Trump was elected. If one is democratically elected that is the exact opposite of a coup.
No. It can be merely the first step in a coup. Chaos calls for extreme measures to insure public safety.The press is reigned in to prevent it from stirring up trouble. The legislature is unable to control the situation and is "temporarily" suspended or dismissed. Local elected officials replaced. The military called in to restore order... It worked for Hitler in 1933.

it very well maybe a oped by a contributing author, and cnn my put a disclaimer saying that these are the authors views.
but it's funny how they always publish views that reflect their reporting and never publish those that are contrary to them.
and on the rare ocassion when they do have a interview with some one that has opposing views, they usually have at least three others that support their views and attack the one. i call that ambush reporting.
Here's the thing: You have to have a willing populace in order to do it.
You also have to have the complicity of a large percentage of the mechanisms of power.
Trump simply doesn't have that. Not to the extent Hitler did.
It's not George Soros, though.
Billionaire liberal activist George Soros is helping fund the airport protests against President Donald Trump's executive order to ban refugees from war-torn Syria indefinitely and suspend visas from seven countries for at least 30 days, as PJ Media reported Sunday.
How does that compare to InfoWars or GlobalResearch or RT?
The suit was filed by lawyers from the International Refugee Assistance Project, the National Immigration Law Center, the Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization at Yale Law School, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the International Refugee Assistance Project (formerly Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project) at the Urban Justice Center.
The ACLU is massively funded by Soros’s Open Society Foundations, including with a $50 million grant in 2014.
