Another Pelosi press conference. And another utterly absurd threat against Trump.
Oh, by the way, Pelosi? Isn’t that mask you’re wearing in the photo above the exact same type of mask that the press roared about Trump over? The difference, of course, is that Trump was in an encased vehicle. You’re out in public. Hm …
Anyway, once again, Pelosi is trotting out that same old tired trope: the 25th Amendment. And, once again, she is fully demonstrating her totally constitutional ignorance. Then again, the most liberal justices on the Court tend to ignore the Constitution anyway for their own activist causes, which is precisely why so much public resistance has occurred with Barrett.
In a (failed) attempt to appear constitutionally informed, Pelosi issued a ridiculous statement regarding Trump’s health and somehow tried to link it to the 25th Amendment.
“We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment … I think that the public needs to know the health condition of the President … There’s one question that he refused to answer … when was his last negative test?” [Source: Fox News]
Wow, didn’t realize that COVID suddenly caused irreparable brain damage, as that’s one “effect” that hasn’t been blasted by the fake news media. So, by Democrat “logic,” every time a President gets a cold then the 25th Amendment is suddenly relevant?
Plus, what about Trump’s illness being a “hoax” per fake news media? Make up your minds!
Now, for the more salient constitutionalists (i.e., Conservatives), a simple breakdown of the 25th Amendment, which frankly is not that many words to read, is transcribed below.
For reference, Sections I and II pertain to what happens after a President passes away or Vice President vacancy occurs, respectively. Thus, in terms of deliberately induced public hysteria (thanks, Pelosi), here are the most relevant sections of the 25th Amendment, specifically Sections III and excerpts from IV, are stated as follows:
“III. 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 …”
“IV. …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.”

So, in other words, Pelosi should probably crack open the actual Constitution itself before issuing such absurd threats. Contrary to her public statements to ignorant leftists, Congress cannot just unilaterally declare that the President cannot serve and that somehow he will be magically removed from office.
She also apparently forgets that the President himself has to declare he is incompetent (Section III), OR the Vice President AND others declare he is incompetent (Section IV). Judging from the most recent debate, it appears that Pence feels just fine with Trump at the helm, so both relevant sections already defeat her before she even gets started.
No wonder the Democrats want to destroy the Constitution. They clearly don’t understand it. Nor do they like the ways in which it inconveniently destroys their thirst for a Democrat-laden dictatorship.
In fact, when looking at the 25th Amendment more closely, it appears a vastly superior case could be made for Biden instead of Trump. And, since the Democrats have ironically chosen a Biden VP that warrants the need for at least fifteen taste testers, something suggests that Harris would be just fine declaring Biden incompetent. She might even work with the Republicans on that one!
Pelosi desperately needs to lose her “podium,” or at least reposition said podium in the open sewage that constitutes the vast majority of San Francisco, conveniently juxtaposed with the sparkling clean illusion of Palo Alto. All under her “leadership.”
You know, kind of like how the slums of third world nations are juxtaposed with the uber-wealthy right next door. From Rio to Johannesburg to Nairobi to Mumbai, these contrasts carry eerie parallels to Democrat-run cities. They’ve got a plan all right, which is probably why they cannot state any coherent policy to the general public.
Carrying on with two plans (one real behind closed doors, one phony in the open) would be too much work for the Democrats, anyway. Since they depend on the rather uninspiring intellects that still believe any word they say, they likely reason that no coherent policy is needed for the small in mind and the gargantuan in hysteria.
Pelosi can kick and scream all she wants, but the reality is Trump has a strong platform, and Trump has kept his promises. Pelosi has achieved … nothing.
Just 3.5 weeks out now from the election, it is clear that the media and criminals are pulling out every single stop possible to eliminate Trump from being legitimately elected.
The only response to such insanely unethical malarkey is for ever since Trump supporter, or at minimum, every single Constitution supporter, to turn out in droves for the election.
This election is arguably one of the most important in nearly a century, as never have American liberties been seriously threatened as they are now.
