    It’s been painfully obvious that the President’s enemies have been aiming for a 25th Amendment solution ever since he took the Oath of Office. It’s another lame attempt to close their eyes and wish Trump away. And it just shows how divorced from reality the Left and the #NeverTrump RINOs are.
     
    It also causes me to question whether they have actually ever even bothered to read the Constitution and its Amendments. Or if they have, they don’t actually care about its meaning and want to simply use it as cover for whatever they want it to mean at the moment.
     
    Here’s the text.
     
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-fifth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution
     
    The key point is Section 4 of the Amendment where the Vice President AND the majority of the President’s principal Cabinet (or a group appointed by Congress) have to declare that the President can’t discharge his duties. Whereupon the Vice President becomes ACTING President.
     
    But wait!
     
    If such an event did occur, the President can then write to Congress attesting he was now fit again to hold office.
     
    At that point, the Vice President, the Cabinet, and Congress have to go through the process one more time to remove the President from office.
     
    ...
     
    And all of that is a pipe dream since the point of the 25th Amendment is about a President being incapacitated like when Reagan was shot or to prevent a scenario like when Woodrow Wilson had a stroke.
     
    The 25th Amendment was not meant to cover some disagreement over Trump’s position on NAFTA or that some mid-level staffer got triggered over a Tweet.

    I just noticed something, Trump’s presidency is similar to Grant’s presidency: 
     
     
    Both are republican. 
     
    Both had very little political experience before running for office. 
     
    Both had very narrow wins during their first terms. 
     
    Both were embroiled in scandals that were mostly hot air. 
     
    Both were elected after a previously ineffective president (unfortunately, Obama served 2 terms). 
     
    Both believe in nepotism  
     
     
    and I predict (using pure Columbian cocaine, and Grant as a guide): 
     
    Trump will have exceptional foreign policy successes later in this term. 
     
    Trump will be re-elected by a very large margin (bonus points if his rival dies within months of Trump being re-elected, x10 if it’s Hillary). 
     
    Trump will push for more peace (rather than the typical warmongering) all over the world. 
     
    Corruption and abuse will plague Trump’s cabinet, but Trump will be innocent on all accounts. 
     
    Trump will get his face on a dollar bill (maybe the 100, cause it’s yuuuge)

    Having read the Anonymous Op-Ed three times now, here are the takeaways.
     
    It’s 27 paragraphs long. 
     
    Most of those paragraphs are just filler.
     
    Of the substantive complaints, they consist of the writer disagreeing with Trump over... free trade.
     
    (Well too fucking bad. Trump ran on eliminating NAFTA and putting tariffs on China. American voters agreed.)
     
    The writer is bent out of shape that the US is engaging in diplomacy with Russia and North Korea. (Because let’s start another war)
     
    He white-knights for the press, because the First Amendment means you don’t have the freedom of speech to criticize CNN or the New York Times. And because no President in history has ever complained about the Press (like Adams, Jefferson, Jackson, Polk, Lincoln, etc).
     
    He doesn’t like the cut of the President’s gib, even the past Presidents have done worse.
     
    He bloviates about the 25th Amendment even though the President is not incapacitated.
     
    And mew hew hew, John McCain.
     
    ...
     
    What a load of crap.

    In situation of Civil war, a line between political-motivated mass shooting and non-political motivated (ethical, revenge/hate to social group) is very thin. Yemen is in situation of Civil war for years.

    Yeah, it's BS, Ford had already announced they were killing their entire CAR line other than the Mustang, and producing more trucks and SUVs since that's what sells.

    We live in a post context world, just look at Count Dankula. Context is born from toxic masculinity, the patriarchy, and white privilege. We must do away with context and the oppression it brings.

    Lanny Davis, Michael Cohen's lawyer, set up a gofundme that has raised over $150,000.  The crowdfunding effort is to help Michael Cohen tell the truth about Trump and his Russian connections.
     
    Having made the money, Lanny Davis is now backing away from the claim that Michael Cohen knows anything.

    I'm just amused that the American Left is falling into the trap that somehow impreaching the President is going to magic away Donald Trump. They're just assuming that the Democrats will win enough House seats in November. And then they're just assuming that there'll be enough Democrat incumbents to then vote for the articles and that they'll throw away any chance they have at re-election by putting the country through the turmoil - political and yes financial - of an impeachment proceeding throughout most of 2019 instead of focusing on advancing Progressive policies like single-payer health care, raising the minimum wage, and whatnot.
     
    And then they assume that just because the President is impeached he'll have to resign because Trump has never fought stuff like that tooth-and-nail in the past. And then they assume that 2/3s of the US Senate will vote to convict when - looking at the polling - it seems that the Democrats will LOSE seats in November, and possibly a lot of seats.
     
    And it's not like we've had two US Presidents impeached in the past, and with Bubba, he wound up more popular after being impeached.
     
    And if Trump is removed, then you have President Pence. 
     
    Perhaps instead of doing the political equivalent of shouting at the sky - there's no Russian collusion and paying off a couple Playboy bunnies isn't a High Crime or misdemeanor - perhaps the Democrats should be focusing on figuring out why America voted for Trump in the first place and running a candidate in 2020 that isn't thoroughly detestable like the one they fobbed off in 2016?

    You think impeaching the President won't crash the economy?  Yeah, sounds credible.  You know, impeaching the Donald, destroyed economy and all,  you will end up with a President who probably really will go after Roe V Wade, but Democrats seem incapable of looking more than 5 minutes into the future or caring about the impact of their schemes.

    "Brennan may have started one of the most important political witch hunts in history based on not recognizing a joke — and I’m not even making that up, I feel fairly confident in saying that what I just said is literally true: that the head of the CIA has almost destroyed the United States because he didn’t understand that an obvious joke was a joke."

    Because whenever Trump says "Fake News", these retards with no self awareness just act like he said "The Press".
     
    Also, the vast majority of these frothing at the mouth advertisement platforms are doing nothing but damage to the country.
