They may not have thought this all the way through


Various Democrat Congresscritters appear to be looking into the possibility of impeaching the God-Emperor as a way to salve the extreme pain being caused by their still-gaping anal fissures:
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Democratic lawmakers are openly questioning President Donald Trump’s mental health, and a growing number of them are invoking the 25th Amendment as a springboard to introduce legislation that would allow former presidents and vice presidents to determine if Trump is mentally unfit for office. 
Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) are among several of these Democrats, according to The Hill. Franken reportedly said “a few” Republican colleagues have expressed concerns to him about Trump’s mental health, and Lieu plans to introduce legislation that would require the presence of a psychiatrist or psychologist in the White House. 
Breitbart News previously reported that Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) had launched an online petition to force the Republican Party to submit then-presidential nominee Trump to a psychiatric evaluation. 
Last week, Rep. Blumenauer used baseless allegations about Trump’s mental health as a springboard to invoke the 25th Amendment in a floor speech. And in an interview with CNN this weekend, Rep. Jackie Spier (D-CA) said Trump “has got to get a grip. The 25th Amendment is there if the president becomes incapacitated.” 
The 25th Amendment was ratified in 1967 following President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination. It allows the Vice President to become President in the event the president resigns or is removed from office by his cabinet for being “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
Riiiiiiiiight...

Look, I don't pretend to be any kind of scholar of the Constitution- although, based on the results of this ridiculous excuse for a "US Citizenship Test" that I just passed with a score of 94% while barely even trying, I might just be descended from Thomas Jefferson himself. But even a foreigner like me has the ability to read and understand the actual wording of the 25th Amendment.

Here is what the 25th Amendment actually says. I've highlighted the bits that the various libtards are getting all hot and bothered about:
Section 1. In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President. 
Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress. 
Section 3. Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President. 
Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President. 
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.
Wow. Talk about an own goal.

So let's think this through from the point of view of a rabbit that actually wants the God-Emperor (PBUH) to be impeached.

First, Vice President Pence and a majority of either the full Executive branch, including the Cabinet that President Trump himself drew up and nominated, or of a specially designed body appointed by Congress, where Republicans now control both houses, need to be convinced by... um... somebody that the God-Emperor is a raving lunatic and needs to be removed from power for his own good.

Second, an actual letter has to be sent to the POTUS and then to the Speaker of the House and the President pro tem of the Senate. And that has to be done within 4 days of the above having taken place.

And then Congress gets 21 days to deliberate the issue- and if Congress isn't in session at the time, well, tough titties.

Already, you can see how quickly the odds of this happening go from pathetic to begin with, to femtoscopically small.

And then there is the best part.

Let us say that, against all odds, these monumental idiots somehow succeed in proving that Donaldus Triumphus is not fit for office and must be removed For The Good Of The Country. (Remember, most progressives can only think in capital letters.)

Guess who becomes head of the Executive Branch after that?

But let’s play along – say it all works out exactly as their opium dreams foretell. THEN YOU GET PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE, YOU INBRED NEO-HIPPIES.
Good luck.
Yeah. That Mike Pence, who as Governor of Indiana wrote into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which a major freakout on the Left because it supposedly allowed businesses to discriminate against LGBTQWTFISTHISBS people in the name of religious freedom. (It actually did nothing of the sort, but, again, facts and reasoning are not strengths of the progressive mind.)

If anything, freed of the more moderate tendencies of his current boss, President Pence would almost certainly be willing to take a far harder line on social issues. While he definitely does not strike me as being half the Alpha male that Donald Trump is, I've no doubt that he would make a competent, if bland, conservative administrator of the Federal government.

He wouldn't necessarily be any good as President- the country appears too far gone for any member of the establishment to have any hope of actually saving it, never mind preserving what is good about it. But he would likely be an even bigger nightmare for progressives than President Trump has proven to be (and that's just in his first 2 months in office).

Look, shitlibtards, I know you don't like President Trump very much, but then, we didn't like President Odumbass at all. And we put up with him for eight long and terrible years without collectively freaking out, rioting, melting down, and getting fired from our jobs for being either giant crybabies or emotionally stunted jackasses suffering from severe rectal-cranial inversion.

One would think that the party that loves to tell the rest of us how enlightened, mature, and civilised they are, could actually, y'know, act like it.

  2. Man that first pic is hilarious.

    I was wondering this morning whether this latest approach by the left/cucks/never-trumpers/klantifas is really from that so-so Star Trek movie remake a few years ago.

    Not sure if you saw it, but Kirk was able to get command of the Enterprise from Spock by getting Spock upset enough to kick his ass and then admit being too "emotionally compromised" to retain command.

    I figured that would really appeal to those anti-Trump losers out there:
    - Kirk getting beat up by his nemesis = A chance to look like a victim,
    - Spock stepping down due to an obscure rule = Getting Trump out by an obscure rule.
    - Kirk assumes command = Profit!

    As you note, this would fail anyway, with Pence getting control, not the Demo-Cuck party crybabies, but than as you said, they obviously haven't thought it through....

    HA!

  3. And if they assassinate Trump we get Lord Protector Mattis with no holds barred and a very large chip on his shoulder.

    Someone at /pol/ suggested that the Milo takedown was a long plan to splinter the Republican party and get enough Dems into the House and Senate in order to make a run at impeaching Trump in 2018. The idea was to ruin Milo, then guilt-by-association Breibart --> Bannon --> Trump. The problems with this thinking are legion. Milo not being a big enough target, lack of faith in MSM, too many degrees of separation, etc. The left just randomly throwing shit at the wall to see if it sticks, and they'll continue to do this until something does. That's why destroying them is the only option, because eventually, someday, against all odds, they'll find something that does. Woe be unto us if we let them live long enough to let that happen.
