Well, if assailing the United States’ borders and what remains of the public education system isn’t bad enough, the Democrats have also decided to busy themselves with reassigning nuclear code responsibilities, as if they were reassigning one of their numerous, pointless “committees.”
And, since the Democrats dwell within a world devoid of consequences, it is really not surprising that they think throwing around varied access to the nuclear codes is an entirely acceptable scenario. In spite of the astonishing risk posed to national security.
Whose brainchild is this one? Well, as it turns out, it originates from … California.
According to “representative” Jimmy Panetta, the American President apparently should not have sole access to the nuclear codes. Never mind the fact that the President is formally the Commander in Chief of the Army, as Democrats never let little things like facts and civics get in the way of their nefarious schemes.
Based upon the rather massive assumption that Democrats would even know a fact in the first place, even when it literally smacks them in the face in the form of multimillion dollar lawsuits (cough, CNN and WaPo over the deplorable treatment of Nick Sandmann, cough).
Regardless, Panetta’s “bill” just further affirms how insanely eager the Democrats are to terminate anything and everything remotely related to representative government. In fact, the urgency is so great that one almost wonders what deals were made overseas, particularly as John Kerry’s backchanneling to Iran has made headlines.

Yeah, interesting. Care to cite any true risks from the past? Actual statements from actual presidents?
Apparently, this bill is so out there that not even the Democrats can invent some fictitious quote from Trump to “justify” it. Instead, the letter simply keeps strolling down generality lane.
“While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so. The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.” [Source: Fox News]
For this incredibly vague, unsubstantiated reason, suddenly the Democrats want “checks and balances” on the “nuclear command-and-control structure.”
Interesting position California has taken, as it lies right within the reach of North Korea and others, certainly more so than states further east, but La La land has become even more La La over the years, much to the detriment of the United States.
One frankly wishes Mexico would just reclaim California and take all the liberals with it. After all, California is flooding itself with Mexicans anyway, so the state may as well just return itself to Mexico and get out of the United States .. for good. That way, California really can abolish the electoral system, at least for itself, and they can freely live amongst all the otherwise illegal immigrants.
That would also be another great way to terminate Chinese influence, given that the CCP has its tentacles all over Hollywood, not to mention the ever totalitarian tech companies up north. In fact, the more one reflects upon the real history of California, which really did fundamentally destroy the way of life for countless Mexicans, returning the state (and its inhabitants) back to Mexico really would be the ultimate “reparation.”
Which is precisely why Democrats should watch such strong language. Someone may come up with even better “reparations” than them, and giving back California to Mexico would be a great way to set a real precedent for such reparations. As in the precedent that actually makes these leftists stop and reflect a minute upon how their own extremist views can be easily turned against them.
Anyone care to propose a bill for that? Something suggests it would receive resounding support. From Elon Musk to hardworking Americans to Mexico itself.
