It helps to know when your enemies are bluffing. The usual neurotics on the Hill are making noises about a Twenty-Fifth Amendment replacement for Trump if they cannot get their second impeachment to happen during the next two weeks. In both cases, this is bluster designed to make Trump back down.
Consider that Leftists are a relatively common animal: the bully who has learned to hide behind the teacher’s skirts. Instead of just walking up to his adversary and punching him in the face, he torments him until he punches, then the bully wails like a victim and uses authority against his adversary.
They fear what Trump will leak, declassify, or sabotage via executive order during the next two weeks, forgetting that he has already ordered just about everything he wants declassified, so he can release it even as a private citizen. Even more, he can order the rest declassified in about ten minutes.
They seem also oblivious to the fact that if they have not caught him leaking during the past five years, they will not catch him now, so he can release any information he wants. They fear he might call a convention of states, perhaps, and they should.
However, right now Trump is the conductor in front of a massive orchestra. He wants the music to get soft, softer until he we are all just about lulled into silence, then he will play the most melancholy of themes, slowly winding it around us until we are in despair, before the triumphant martial theme begins.
He intends to let them reveal themselves. He will make the next two weeks a dirge for America as the voters slowly see that they have given up superpower status, abandoned being a highly respected nation, bailed out on having a thriving economy, and embraced failure and corruption at every level.
He will bring his symphony to a point of intensity that will tear the country apart. In the meantime, we should look at degenerate dipsomaniac Nancy Pelosi and her neurotic fantasies of a Twenty-Fifth Amendment revocation of the Trumpster:
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.
Little hairy woman thinks that her best plan is to use the numerical majority of her party to declare Trump “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” which is of course ludicrous given his previous record, and to remove him as if it were an impeachment proceeding.
She believes in the Hart-Celler plan and thinks that her party will always have the majority from this day forward, therefore there is no reason to fear turnabout as fair play. However, in doing so, she will massively tip her hand and put to rest any thoughts that the Left stands for fair play or decency.
In my view, she will hold out for impeachment, because that way she can remove Trump not just from this term, but from when he runs again in 2024 on the “Make Elections Fair Again” ticket. Because this is transparent, however, she has only managed to signal that she has something to hide.
Democrats still fear their exposed flank. They know that Trump has something on them, and are probably not sure what, but their behavior over the past twenty-four hours shows that their intent is to make sure that he has no voice, on Twitter or elsewhere, and to drive him out of government.
As usual, Trump reveals people. He is showing us a party not content in victory, but paranoid in its scramble for power, acting guilty, and demonstrating the mental stability of a homeless guy who just found a bag of meth and crack under a case of MD 20/20.
This means that with each passing day, more Americans are believing that Trump and company are censored and attacked because they have a legitimate point, and many are also seeing that life under Democrats will not be good, but the opposite. Discontent rises, to be followed by rage.
