House Democrats are on a mission to educate the American people about a little-known power of the 25th Amendment — the ousting of the president. Led by freshman Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, a group of growing Democratic co-signers has put forth a bill that could force President Donald Trump from office if he were found mentally or physically unfit. Although it was introduced in April, the bill has gained steam in the past week as Trump´s tweet storms have grown in ferocity. (Video) "Given Donald Trump´s continued erratic and baffling behavior, is it any wonder why we need to
If this continues, I´m rather tempted to no longer use the term ´democrat´ party. I think UnAmerican party might be a more accurate pseudonym. Especially after 8 years of flouting an unamerican marxist because of the ´crease in his trousers´? There is some serious psychopathy going on here.
After listening and watching the media´s disrespectful, dishonest and contemptuous statements about Mr. Trump, I find Mr. Trump´s actions perfectly understandable and just. How sad that the Democrats are so confused and ignorant and uninformed as to find the President´s actions baffling. They should get out more.
Once again NBC News has thoroughly embarrassed itself by promoting this dimwitted plan as a bill that has "gained steam". Not quite enough to move a locomotive, but maybe enough to cause a defective teapot to briefly whistle.
Remember that Repeal 0bamacare bill that the GOPe House kept passing because they knew that Smidgen would veto it? It was merely a gesture so that they could get re-elected by saying - Look what we tried to do!
Raskin´s bill is the same ploy - the demonrats know that it has no chance in hell of getting passed, but at least they can tell their far-left rioting thugs that they tried.
Written and endorsed by the most inconsequential people in Congress.having accomplishedvery little in their lives chronic complainers parasites always at the public trough with a tin cup! Let them enjoy their childish adventure. Off with them!
"educate the American people about a little-known power of the 25th Amendment
Bwaa-ha-ha! Anyone who watched Air Force One saw the 25th Amendment in action!
As others have posted, this is a publicity stunt, a fundraiser, a chance to show the far, far left Marxists (that they want as a base) they´re working to take their government back from the conservative usurpers.
Depending upon exactly how it is written, it may be considered sedition or an attempt at a coup...that will show the voters back home who is the boss.
All of Puerto Rico has lost power after deadly Hurricane Maria swept through the island on Wednesday - with winds that blew the roofs off homes and flash floods that turned roads into rivers. Leaving at least nine people dead in its wake across the Caribbean, Hurricane Maria blew ashore in the morning in the southeast coastal town of Yabucoa as a Category 4 storm with winds of 155 mph. While the eye of the storm has since moved off the island and weakened to a Category 3 hurricane, it´s expected to continue lashing the island of 3.4million with life-threatening
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. in defiance of the law “did a great thing,” giving the country an infusion of successful young people. Mrs. Pelosi’s comments strike a dissonant note from many analysts, who while saying the Dreamers are sympathetic since they had no say in the decision, say the parents do deserve blame for creating the problem. He comments came after she was shouted down by protesters earlier this week who interrupted her at an event, and demanded she do more to protect all illegal immigrants. Mrs. Pelosi, at her weekly
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, the guests and hosts actually had a moderately balanced (particularly by MSNBC standards) discussion running for much of the broadcast with respect to evaluating Trump’s address to the United Nations General Assembly yesterday. However, in a segment with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski facilitated her unleashing a series of ridiculous assertions about Trump’s speech completely unchecked by basic reality. Brzezinski began by asking Secretary Albright what her gut feeling was about President Trump’s speech:
President Trump on Wednesday said he’s made a decision on the Obama-brokered nuclear deal with Iran but wouldn’t say if that meant he would scrap the agreement as he suggested during a speech at the United Nations. Taking questions from reporters after meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Trump said, “I have decided.” Pressed to elaborate, Trump would only say, “I’ll let you know what the decision is.” Trump, during his maiden speech before the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, called the 2015 deal “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions” and suggested the US would withdraw from the
Megyn Kelly said Wednesday she would have President Trump as a guest on her new daytime television show. "Definitely. I would not say ´no´ to the sitting president of the United States," Kelly told Ellen Degeneres of her new program, "Megyn Kelly Today," ahead of its debut on NBC on Sept. 25. Degeneres, a public critic of Trump, said she would not offer Trump the same courtesy because it would give him another platform to spout policies she disagreed with. Kelly and Trump shared an acrimonious relationship in person and on social media, particularly after Kelly asked whether a man of Trump's temperament ought to
Melania Trump made sure all eyes were on her when she donned hot pink to condemn bullying during her speech at the United Nations luncheon on Wednesday. The 47-year-old first lady stood out in a neon wool coat while addressing the spouses of other world leaders, among others, during a lunch held at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in New York. Melania´s $2,950 coat from Delpozo featured voluminous sleeves and a matching wool belt that cinched her waist. (Photos) She paired the simple, yet elegant, coat with matching hot pink pumps and minimal jewelry as she let the
The Wall Street Journal editorial board never minces words. The conservative paper late Tuesday posted an editorial openly calling for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate wiretapping allegations involving top Trump aide Paul Manafort. The paper says Mueller´s ties to the FBI and to its former director, James Comey, "make him too conflicted" to conduct the investigation. "Congress is charged with providing oversight of law enforcement and the FISA courts, and it has an obligation to investigate their role in 2016. The intelligence committees have subpoena authority and the ability to hold those who don’t cooperate in
President Trump on Wednesday hit back at Hillary Clinton for criticizing him over his tough talk at the United Nations aimed at stopping North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclear arsenal. In an early morning tweet, Trump seemed to put the blame on Clinton for the current standoff with Pyongyang. “After allowing North Korea to research and build Nukes while Secretary of State (Bill C also), Crooked Hillary now criticizes,” Trump tweeted. (Tweet) The president was responding to remarks Tuesday night by Clinton on CBS´s "The Late Show” about his speech earlier in the day before the U.N. General Assembly. “I thought it was very dark,
Students at San Diego State University have the opportunity to earn extra credit by determining their personal level of “white privilege.” Sociology professor Dae Elliot of San Diego State University has offered her students the opportunity to earn extra credit by filling out a form that reveals their unique level of “white privilege.” The form was inspired by the work of educator Peggy McIntosh, who helped popularize the concept of “white privilege” in the late 1980s. McIntosh famously compared “white privilege” to an invisible knapsack of social advantages that often go unnoticed by those who benefit from them. The examples
A federal appeals court in Seattle ruled Tuesday that police can only use force “proportional” to the threat they face, seriously damaging the Seattle Police Department’s ability to use firearms. The ruling from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the use of force reforms put in place by federal mandates under the Obama administration that required police to use only “objectively reasonable force, proportional to the threat or urgency of the situation,” the Associated Press reports. The unanimous ruling strikes down a lawsuit filed by a group of more than 120 Seattle officers in 2014 who claimed that the strict reforms infringe on
The Washington Post reports that President Trump’s statements to the U.N. about North Korea unsettled China and Russia. Trump said that “the United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” China, through a state controlled newspaper, complained that Trump’s threat will “likely worsen the already volatile situation.” It called Trump’s posture an obstacle to “other countries’ efforts to persuade the two antagonists to talk. Russia moaned that “any military conflict means the deaths of civilians.” Russia should know, given
In the hours following President Trump’s speech to the United Nations Tuesday, the media frantically wondered if Trump wasn’t inviting nuclear war by condemning North Korea. Some networks like NBC, even sympathized with the American-hating regime of Iran while condemning our own president. MSNBC was no different, with anchor Brian Williams panicking on The Eleventh Hour September 20, that by Trump calling America “sovereign” he was sending a “dog whistle” to the UN that we didn’t need them anymore. Williams was joined by a panel of liberal guests who shared his negative take on Trump’s speech.
A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.´” Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself
Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is reaching back more than a decade in its investigation of Paul Manafort, a sign of the pressure Mueller is placing on President Donald Trump´s former campaign chairman. The FBI´s warrant for a July search of Manafort´s Alexandria, Virginia, home said the investigation centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The broad time frame is the latest indication that Mueller´s team is going well beyond Russian meddling during the campaign as part of its investigation of Trump campaign associates. Manafort,
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the
Hillary Clinton´s "What Happened" had a big debut. Clinton´s book about her stunning loss in 2016 to Donald Trump sold more than 300,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book´s hardcover sales of 168,000 was the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years, according to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen´s "No Easy Day," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week. Sales for "What Happened"
United Nations - The Latest on President Donald Trump and North Korea (all times local): 8:00 a.m. Former Secretary of State John Kerry says President Donald Trump´s United Nations speech may have put America in isolation and danger. Appearing on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" show Wednesday, Kerry criticized Trump´s harsh rhetoric against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kerry said, "You have to ask yourself: Is America safer because of ´rocket man?" He was referring to Trump´s characterization of Kim. Kerry said that kind of harsh language will make it harder for the United States to engage in diplomacy on
Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5
Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,
In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined
Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African
Filmmaker James O´Keefe said on Monday that Project Veritas will be releasing the results of one of the largest investigations the organization has ever conducted. The Project, said O´Keefe, will lead to people being fired. "In the coming weeks, you’re going see one of the biggest investigations this organization has ever done," O’Keefe said. "It’s a continuation of American Pravda series. It’s aimed at the media. We’re going after their holy grail." "We have tripled our journalists in the field," he continued. "They are not even here, they are out there everyday. It’s gonna be big, it’s gonna be massive.
U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (Tweet) Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.” Trump’s claim,
Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. (Snip) “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s virtually no legal path forward, and that challenging election results at this point would be unprecedented. “There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on
