ELDER PATRIOT – Establishment politicians from both sides of the aisle are starting the drumbeat that President Trump must be removed from office because he is mentally unfit to serve. What is their evidence? They claim that he lies and that’s indicative that he is exhibiting psychotic behavior.
Listen to comedian Al Franken, comedian turned liar…er, politician:
You can’t make this shit up!
Jake Tapper: Do Republican colleagues of yours express concerns about President Trump’s mental health?
Sen. Franken: A few.
Care to guess who they might be? They couldn’t possibly be John McCain and mini me Lindsey Graham, could they?
Franken is just one of a number of establishment politicians that have joined in advancing the narrative that the Twenty-Fifth Amendment must be employed to save the republic. The pertinent wording comes from Section 4 of the amendment:
“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.”
Earlier this week Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) in a floor speech called for a review of the Constitution’s procedures for removing a president. He warned the 25th Amendment of the Constitution falls short when it comes to mental or emotional fitness for office.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) pledged to introduce legislation that would require the presence of a psychiatrist or psychologist in the White House.
It was only a matter of time that the establishment media would join in echoing the narrative.
The Atlantic’s David Frum tweeted, “Twenty-Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. Article 4. We’re all going to be talking a lot more about it in the months ahead.”
The New York Times’ David Brooks’ latest column noted, “I still have trouble seeing how the Trump administration survives a full term. Judging by his Thursday press conference, President Trump’s mental state is like a train that long ago left freewheeling and iconoclastic, has raced through indulgent, chaotic and unnerving, and is now careening past unhinged, unmoored and unglued.”
MSNBC’s Steven Benen filed the following report after Trump’s press conference:
“This is not an uncommon sentiment. During Donald Trump’s press conference yesterday, a variety of reporters in the room were overheard whispering among each other about the “insane” nature of president’s performance. There was a similar reaction on Capitol Hill: NBC News’ Kasie Hunt said lawmakers from both parties watched the event with their “jaws on the floor.”
Earlier in the week, the Washington Post’s E.J. Dionne Jr. asked a question many have pondered, but few have spoken aloud: “What is this democratic nation to do when the man serving as president of the United States plainly has no business being president of the United States?” His colleague, Dana Milbank, recently conceded, “My worry is the president of the United States is barking mad.”
They’ve even resorted to psycho analysis by someone who, after building his case on nothing but hyperbole, finally admitted he’s not qualified to make any assessments as to anyone’s mental health because he’s nothing more than just one more biased writer.
But, he sounds so authoritative, doesn’t he?
It’s amazing. The worst liars on earth – they promise world peace, financial nirvana and balanced budgets, a secure retirement through social security, better educational opportunities for our children, superior and less expensive healthcare through Obamacare, and who accused the Russians of hacking our election – are aligning to stage a coup against President Trump for supposedly lying about the size of the turnout at his inauguration and whether voter and election fraud exists (an investigation into which both Senate Majority Leader McConnell and the Democrats dismiss as unwarranted.)
Chuck Schumer told everyone what was in store for Trump, or anyone else, who dared to challenge the Deep State and we are now seeing his threat being played out by the most nefarious means possible.
The time has come that every American Patriot must realize Donald Trump stands as our last chance for reclaiming our Founding Principles and we must do everything required of us to protect him from the Deep State.
Each generation is entrusted with passing the flame of liberty on to the next. We must defend it with our lives because if we fail there will be no place in heaven for us.
