The number of TV screens that have met their demise over the course of the last 4 years is incalculable. Whether by shoes, bricks, or the Elvis Presley method of shooting holes in the tube, people have been infuriated by the lies and distortions of the left. Leave it to the Speaker of the House for the latest lame brain idea - Nancy Pelosi wants to be the President, and she plans to get there without bothering with an election.
Her latest screwball idea is to setup a commission within the legislature, which will essentially give the House Speaker power over the Presidency. Pelosi is using the recent illness of President Trump, which resulted from his contraction of the Chinese COVID-19 Virus, as reason to modify the 25TH
Amendment. The 25th
Amendment is a safeguard to insure a smooth transfer of power from the President to the Vice President, in the event the President is incapacitated or resigns. Section four of the amendment outlines the procedure for the removal of a President from office, this involves the Vice President along with the principal officers of the executive branch taking specific steps. Both houses of Congress would be notified and if needed, both would require a two-thirds majority vote for the removal of a President. Regardless of the steps, they would follow the continuity of succession, and the Vice President would assume the duties as the President.
By usurping the duties that are held within for the Vice President and the executive branch, Nancy Pelosi thinks she would be able to a remove President at will. She would essentially be figuratively pointing a gun at the head of the Presidency. She claims this is not aimed at President Trump, but at a future President. Maybe she has Joe Biden in mind; he has exhibited cognitive problems and is not expected to be able to complete a first term in office, should he be elected. If Donald Trump is re-elected, Pelosi would be in a position to remove a President whenever she felt like it.
The real danger here is Nancy Pelosi; her behavior and disjointed comments have been at times bizarre, so much so that her mental fitness is in question. On Monday, 12 Oct 2020, Rep. Doug Collins introduced a resolution to push for the removal of the Speaker, and she should be removed from the line of succession. Pelosi and her buddy Chuck Schumer in the Senate are rabidly frantic to seize power - there seems to be nothing more important than that power.
Make no mistake, this is the Harris/Biden campaign. Presidential candidate Joe Biden has referred to himself in this campaign as a place holder. A Rasmussen poll of 10 August 2020 showed 59% of those questioned say that Joe Biden will not make it through a first term. The Democrats are campaigning to elect Kamala Harris to the Presidency, who is considered the most radical member of the U.S. Senate. Joe Biden is their front man, who may not even make it through the presidential inauguration before he is declared incapable to serve.
At a minimum this is an abuse of an individual who seems to have cognitive problems that continually show up in his conversations and speeches. This charade is all about putting raw power in the hands of incompetent radicals who want to destroy the economic engines of the United States. They are promising the fantasy world of socialism, which as always ends up as a cruel dictatorship. They want to be like horror show of the old Soviet Union and other disasters like Cuba and Venezuela. Our Republic has worked just fine for 230 years, regardless of the hiccups along the way; we are not perfect, no one ever said we are, but we are still the best show in town.
