Pelosi and Raskin are out there with media support trying to get rid of President Trump in COUP-COUP land
Re-Posted from the Canada Free Press By Judi McLeod —— Bio and Archives—October 9, 2020
Today’s New York Post headline is hilariously dead-on: Nancy Pelosi’s “COUP-COUP”!
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says her team is “going to be talking about the 25th Amendment” on Friday — the latest in a long line of nutty Democratic fantasies of getting rid of President Trump. (NY Post, Oct. 8, 2020)
“Pelosi, who hasn’t actually talked to the prez in months, claims to think he’s mentally off thanks to his COVID-19 treatments (or something). Yet she’s only exposing (again) Democrats’ own Trump Derangement Syndrome, because this potential coup is an obvious non-starter.
Unfortunately, Pelosi is not the only nutty Dem in public office
“Trump’s “disassociation from reality would be funny if it weren’t so deadly,” she claimed — just because he’s made his usual fast-changing threats and offers over the relief bill that Democrats have stalled in Congress.
“The 25th Amendment allows for temporary ouster of a disabled president, but it requires the active participation of a majority of his cabinet — or the Republican Senate’s assent to setting up some other body to rule on his fitness. The prez just gave an hour-long interview to Maria Bartiromo — pretty compelling proof that he’s clicking on all cylinders. And there is no provision for removing a president just because Pelosi is offended by his existence.”
At this morning’s press conference, she wore a blue and white face mask matching her electric blue dress.
Yet when she showed up at a local beauty salon for a dye job earlier this month, she wore a bare face.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Jamie Raskin are introducing a bill on Friday to form a commission that would rule on the president’s fitness for office in order to “enable Congress to help ensure effective and uninterrupted leadership” in the presidency. (CBS, Oct. 9, 2020)
“This panel, called the Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office, would be “the body and process called for in the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” Pelosi and Raskin’s offices said in a statement on Thursday.”
These days there’s a Commission on Presidential Everything—including a Commission on Presidential Debates that yesterday saw debate monitor Steve Scully checking in with former White House Director of Communications Anthony ‘Scare-a-Moochie’ to see whether he should respond to a Tweet by President Trump.
In his press conference with Pelosi today, Raskin used the term “government actors” the president could possibly infect with the Coronavirus.
Raskin was right. There’s a lot of government actors running at large out there.
“At the press conference announcing the bill on Friday morning, Pelosi insisted that the bill was not intended to determine President Trump’s fitness of office.
“This is not about President Trump. He will face the judgment of voters. But he shows the need to create a process for future presidents,” Pelosi said.
“The 25th Amendment provides the procedure for the vice president to take over the duties of president in case of his death, resignation or inability to perform his duties. The amendment says that when the vice president and a majority either of Cabinet officials “or of such other body as Congress may by law provide” determine that the president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” then the vice president shall take over the duties of president.” (CBS)
Surely Pelosi, Raskin and Company are confusing the spitfire president with Joe Biden and the necessity of having to replace him with vice president Kamala Harris if the mail-in vote works and he is elected?
“The 25th Amendment is all about the stability of the presidency and the continuity of the office,” Raskin said in the conference announcing the bill, noting that it was ratified on a bipartisan basis after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. (CBS)
WHOA, how did assassination get into the picture?!
“In the age of COVID-19, which has killed more than 210,000 Americans and now ravaged the White House staff, the wisdom of the 25th Amendment is clear,” Raskin continued, referring to the multiple White House officials who have tested positive for the virus. Raskin noted that the commission would be bipartisan, with members chosen by both Republicans and Democrats, and could only act in concert with the vice president. (CBS)
Sure, Congressman Raskin.
“Pelosi and Raskin’s introduction of the bill comes after President Trump was hospitalized over the weekend after testing positive for COVID-19, raising concerns about presidential succession. The White House said that Mr. Trump remained on the job even while he was at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and that there were no plans for Vice President Mike Pence to assume presidential authority. Mr. Trump returned to the White House on Monday, and returned to work at the Oval Office on Wednesday. (CBS)
“Raskin previously introduced a similar bill in 2017 to impanel a group of physicians and retired public officials to determine whether the president was mentally and physically fit for office.
“The 25th Amendment was adopted 50 years ago, but Congress has never set up the body it calls for to determine presidential fitness in the event of physical or psychological incapacity. Now is the time to do it,” Raskin said in a statement introducing the initial bill in May 2017.”
“Mr. Trump retweeted several posts on Thursday evening criticizing Pelosi for appearing to consider implementation of the 25th Amendment.”
The Dems are no longer “appearing” to consider implementation of the 25th Amendment, it’s now on the books.
Meanwhile, Pelosi and Raskin are out there with media support trying to get rid of President Trump in COUP-COUP land.
