Missouri Official Calls For Military Coup, But Meant No 'Ill Intent' Toward Obama

Jefferson County Recorder of Deeds Debbie Dunnegan called for a military coup, but she didn't mean anything by it. Sure she didn't.
Missouri Official Calls For Military Coup, But Meant No 'Ill Intent' Toward Obama

It's hard to reconcile Debbie Dunnegan-Waters' weak 'apology' with what she posted on Facebook asking our military why they haven't overthrown our "domestic enemy" in the White House.

Here's what she wrote on Facebook:

I have a question for all my friends who have served or are currently serving in our military...having not put on a uniform nor taken any type military oath, there has to be something that I am just not aware of. But I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy. I know he is supposedly the commander in chief but the constitution gives you the authority. What am I missing? Thank you for your bravery and may God keep you safe.

Other than missing a brain cell or two, perhaps Dunnegan-Waters should actually pay attention to the oath members of the military take, where they're sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, even if that means that a duly elected black guy is the outcome.

But it gets even better. In an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Dunnegan-Waters expressed aggravation with how her words had allegedly been taken out of context.

What she really was asking was what oath the military took to protect the country from enemies both foreign and domestic.

Sure she was. That's why she specifically mentioned the "commander-in-chief" in her post as "our domestic enemy." Seems like there's plenty of context around that.

"Something innocent and simple got twisted into a disaster because it's an election," Dunnegan said.

There was nothing innocent and simple about it. She lies like any other Republican lies, and she is unfit to hold any office based on her seditious attitudes.

Oh, and here's something for Ms. Dunnegan-Waters to review and digest. The oaths of enlistment:

"I, _____, 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." (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).

"I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ 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; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God." (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)
