Forget about Impeachment, time to invoke the 25th
« on: February 02, 2019, 06:16:03 PM »
The evidence that shows that Trump is not fit to be in the office and needs to be removed via the 25th Amendment continues to mount.  At what point with they finally invoke it?  Will it be after everything fall apart or sometime during the fall?  Are we already in the fall, but don't realize it due to not watching the ground rush up to meet us?  Or are we rapidly moving towards the cliff but not paying attention to it? 

At what point will the Adults finally wake up to the danger?

I don't think that there's anybody left in the cabinet with enough guts to call for a vote.

I like to fantasize that every time Trump is alone with Putin, they talk about his exit strategy, and that one day when he leaves the country, he'll never come back.

Next item: the long-awaited chess game between Edward Snowden and Donald Trump ended in remise.
Or should that be a poker game? ;)

The BS with his Intel Chief's report to Congress and his reaction/statements afterwards.

And these are people he put into the jobs that he has a problem with.  Also the post Shutdown rhetoric as well as everything else.

The 25th amendment is not intended to remove the president when he's especially inept or corrupt. It's intended to provide a smooth transition of power when the president is disabled in some fashion. Treating it as a way to get rid of a bad president, even a very bad one, is a dangerous road to go down that starts to look increasingly like a coup. We might think "oh the president has X mental health condition that makes him unfit" but he has not been diagnosed as such by any health professional, and the VP and cabinet are not qualified to make that diagnosis.

He's going absolutely nowhere until 2021 at the earliest, barring assassination or natural death.  We'll survive.

We'll probably survive, but we'll have to live with the shame of knowing that future historians will refer to our time as The Trump Era.

Poor Obama, don't historians care for his feelings?

Here's a legal question-

When making a determination to remove the president on dementia/mental health grounds, do acting secretaries get a vote, or only confirmed cabinet officers?

* Random quote

The ancient Chinese had a name for it: Feng Shui. We call it energy flow. It is the same thing, the same thought: energy is everywhere, but only a fraction of it is tapped by humans for their purposes. Now the Progenitors have taught us that we can tap not only our own latent abilities, but the latent abilities of the Universe itself.
~Prophet Cha Dawn 'Planet Rising'
