Well Pence isn’t on board with the 25th.

Impeachment it is, says the Dem house leadership.

All aboard the impeachment train for round two! choo choo

It would be so much better if Pence had evoked the Constitutional measure that deals with this type of political behavior, hopefully he will be around long enough to see why.

Minority leader and his unemployed wife aside.

Nice sense of humor. Graham, yesterday and today makes me nauseous.
He would look better with a peg leg and a hook.

AOC, being an expert on cowardly, recognizes it in others. But glossing another pol cowardly, in this particular week, shows just how out of touch with the concept of shame she really is. She deserves the ultimate in word violence. Words do not adequately describe her baseness.

The 25th is off the table.
Resignation by Trump has never been serious.
Impeachment is not gonna occur either. Dem leaders are lying to us.

Hunker down.
Pray for all the hungry childrens, elderly, families.
Find a way to assist all these folkes for the next 18 months
of genuine hardships for over 180 million Americans.

Get Trump off my TV screen. Give us real news, verified.
No more panels with same stale comments every evening.

The chicken shit senators and representatives could have
stood tall and brave. Working today inside the capitol instead
of bugging out and expecting citizens to respect them, listen
to their outrage, and witness them do absolutely nothing.

It’s laughable. There are only 12 days left of Trump’s rule. Leaving now is akin to signing off and taking your last 10 days of vacation pay. “Self-preservation” is exactly what it is, jumping ship as Trump goes down.

" Listen to their outrage"…After kissing trumps ass for almost 4 years, senator Graham says he’s had enough. Instead of saying this with 13 days of trump left, he could have waited until the morning of Jan.20th.

Paper Tiger. The US Government is showing its true colors. This mob has just demonstrated that the government can be challenged. Very poor showing by the government. If they are not voicing their positions, then they are supporting Trump. Pence is guilty. The Cabinet, guilty…all support Trump’s actions… The government has collapsed. Either they are supporting him or the have no courage nor integrity. This is giving Trump power to do more damage… Don’t rule out a war with Iran. If that were allowed to happen, both Dems & Repubs would have blood on their hands, as would the military by allowing Trump to incite war. This government deserves to collapse.

War with Iran.
I do understand the fear that Trump is whacko and may do more to disrupt.

As far as military actions by USA against Iran =

  1. The war sec’y can decline to go to a pre-emptive war.
  2. The joint chiefs of staff can decline
  3. Central Command in Tampa, Florida can accept the order -
    and delay implementing our attack(s).
  4. Central Command can respond to the order by stating that
    the army lawyers are getting ready to review the situation. The
    expert just retired to Minnesota and has to be re-activated and
    brought to Tampa or DC.
  5. The communications can be real slow.

Any military person, any rank, passing along, ordering or acting upon illegal orders
may be court martialed.

She is just another “rich bitch” who wants to continue raking in money hand over fist. If she had any any any moral fiber at all she would not quit but work her ass off to bring other cabinet members on board to invoke the 25th Amendment. But now she turns tail and runs. She and Moscow Mitch deserve each other. Heavy Metal Addicts, anti-democratic facilitators of Trump and his sycophants who continue to promote sedition. Hold these fuck heads accountable for they are officials sponsoring domestic terrorism.

What the fuck is wrong with these weirdoes? Seriously. What the fuck is wrong with them? It was obvious all along that rumpface was a scam. Almost everyone recognized the scam and warned others about it. Some people nevertheless knowingly and enthusiastically went along with the scam. Now they want to claim that they were ignorant.

No. They were not ignorant.

They supported the fucking fascist and they have to admit it. After they admit it, they must resign from public office and go live lives of penance.

What were retrumplicans so worried about that stealing an election was sooo important?
Stock market woos, economy worries, debt and deficit, pandemic realities?
What would make so many willing to lie through their dirty rotten, green, slimy teeth.

More like Chao and Devos.

Section 4 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment is a gaslighting farce. It will never be invoked. Congress was supposed to legislate some “teeth” into Sec. 4 by creating “…a body approved ‘by law’ formed by Congress…” but they failed to do a damn thing as usual. Even if, by some magical fairy dust, a bunch of people whose careers are beholden to the president actually did vote in the majority, the president can object in writing, and then you need a 2/3 majority in the Senate and House to confirm his ouster. Outside of wars and war appropriations bills, when was the last time Congress voted 2/3 for anything? People should quit talking about the 25th Sec. 4 as if it was a real thing.

Do you vote to give cushy jobs to your representative, or do you expect your representative to work for you, even when it’s hard? And it’s not even hard to do what 80% of the People want. It OUGHT to be impossible to not do what 80% of the voters want in a functioning democracy.
