I continue to believe he will end up resigning before 2020, playing true to form in declaring himself a “winner”…as he runs away while leaving the GOP holding the bag.

Is that resignation with assurances he won’t get indicted by like 10 different jurisdictions the minute he’s gone?

I don’t see that as a remote possibility. He will either be 25A’d (either from a stroke or from just general mental deterioration) and eventually committed, or he will get impeached when the Democrats win in November. He will never willingly abandon ship.

We still have a lot of work to do before we get the fire out - that’s 2020 - but things are starting to spin out of the ability for Trump to control the narrative. And that’s really the worst thing for him.

Semi-CL’d:

Look, there are Constitutional mechanisms for limiting the power of a President or removing him/her. You can invoke Article 25 and put a caretaker in charge, or you can impeach.

That’s it. Those are your options.

What you CAN’T do is what this Op/Ed writer has said “he” and his co-conspirators have done, which is basically deciding to hamstring the guy in the Oval without letting him know or telling him why.

This is outside of Constitutional norms. This an admission that they have independently decided to create a Constitutional Crisis from inside the White House.

That’s is. Full stop.

This is a Palace Coup and should be the only thing that is being talked about. Who are they? Who outside of the WH supports this? This is an unelected group (unless Pence is in on it) who have subverted our Government.

Historians can bark about the situation after Wilson had his big ass stroke, but this isn’t about a health issue per se. Trump is exactly who and what he was when elected. He hasn’t changed a bit. He has done exactly what he said he was going to do. And these people have done their best to de-fang him.

This is what is unprecedented. This is all that should be discussed. Republicans have attempted to decapitate the vested power within the Republican White House.

From the previous thread …

re: #212 HappyWarrior

If you want to argue that McCain paved the way for Trump, I won’t argue. Just a different perspective. The bigger point is that the GOP establishment is directly responsible for why Trump has been able to flourish in right wing circles due to their own actions and cowardice.

I’ll argue. McCain didn’t pave the way, nor did Romney. Both were just points on the continuum of conservatism which led to Trump.

Joe McCarthy led plenty of bat guano in his day as a conservative, but was ultimately hoisted by his own petard.

I still maintain it was Barry Goldwater’s run for President, when he invited the Klan and John Birch Society (the Infowars of print) into the GOP. Nixon continued it with his Southern Strategy, Reagan with his opening campaign speech on the site of slain Civil Rights workers killed there only seven years before and weaponising Evangelical Christianity (which before had been mostly apolitical, and strangely using a Catholic, Paul Weyrich).

The GOP has been demonising education all my life, to the point many people believe higher education institutions are overrun with “Marxists” (though I doubt they could identify Karl Marx), and that things like critical thinking undermines parental authority.

And all the mention of Russia, which he knows all too well now in his recent appointment. Helsinki and McCain passing may have made him think about the mess it all is.

And, he is 76, a former respected Republican Senator and will have no further political job in the future, so he doesn’t give a shit.

Doesn’t matter how much Kavanaugh struggles, or how much drama there is. He’s going to be confirmed.

That may be. Every Democrat running from Senate to dogcatcher can hang Kavanaugh over the necks of their opponents as an example of both parties are not the same to the endless dupes who believe that zombie decades-old conservative lie.

Kavanaugh has apparently admitted to lying under oath to Senator Leahy. That can be used to remove him via impeachment later, if for some reason his confirmation isn’t derailed.

As for my own so-called never-Trumper Senator Ben Sasse, he’s like the rest of them, oh so concerned but will put party over country. With a dollop of misogamy on top. Even local radio stations today excoriated him over his “hysteria” comment.

On the other hand, maybe someone wanted to implicate Pence so that all the knives would be out and everyone would turn on everyone else.

Steve Bannon speaks about tearing down the “Administrative State.” Considering my now-cancelled subscription to The Economist for normalising that fascist under the imprimatur of their magazine, and the fact the Times has been fascist-curious since Hitler, I’ll put a fin on him.

Trump can’t fire Bannon, but his wingnut backers can.

None of these people except Coats are that clever and I think he’s both too aware of the risks to himself and the destabilizing impact this would bring / has brought. Coats also doesn’t have the potential personal upside reward that Pence would obviously see in such a move.

Pence is the only one who truly personally benefits from destabilizing Trump further.

Semi-CL’d:

Look, there are Constitutional mechanisms for limiting the power of a President or removing him/her. You can invoke Article 25 and put a caretaker in charge, or you can impeach.

That’s it. Those are your options.

What you CAN’T do is what this Op/Ed writer has said “he” and his co-conspirators have done, which is basically deciding to hamstring the guy in the Oval without letting him know or telling him why.

This is outside of Constitutional norms. This an admission that they have independently decided to create a Constitutional Crisis from inside the White House.

That’s is. Full stop.

This is a Palace Coup and should be the only thing that is being talked about. Who are they? Who outside of the WH supports this? This is an unelected group (unless Pence is in on it) who have subverted our Government.

Historians can bark about the situation after Wilson had his big ass stroke, but this isn’t about a health issue per se. Trump is exactly who and what he was when elected. He hasn’t changed a bit. He has done exactly what he said he was going to do. And these people have done their best to de-fang him.

This is what is unprecedented. This is all that should be discussed. Republicans have attempted to decapitate the vested power within the Republican White House.

Can’t agree with this take. You’ve identified maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of the problem - no way should it be okay for the Executive Branch to be failing to carry out the President’s will.

However, also no way should the President’s will include killing the entire Syrian Government on a whim.

Also, no way should the Cabinet, knowing what they know about Trump, have NOT put the 25th Amendment into action, and no way should the Congress have any difficulty coming up with a 2/3 majority to kick Trump to the curb.

But here we are. If the Cabinet and the Congress won’t act to remove him, despite the majority seeing him as unfit for the job, what should they do? Just let him run wild?

The problem is not JUST the usurpation. It’s the unwillingness of the Cabinet and the Congress to act to remove him, instead picking and choosing what they like.

But you know, he’s the boss. If he asks for something to be done, and it’s not done, it’s kind of up to him to raise a stink, demand it be done, fire the person(s) who failed to act. If he doesn’t do that, maybe he didn’t really mean it? The guy I used to work for would often tell me to do stuff I knew was stupid. I would say, “Okay” and not do it, knowing he’d forget, or that he’d be fine with how I did it, once it was done, even if it wasn’t how he’d demanded it be done.

This is what is unprecedented. This is all that should be discussed. Republicans have attempted to decapitate the vested power within the Republican White House.

The 25th Amendment is really designed to address times when the president can’t perform his duties due to health reasons - it’s basically a response to things like Wilson’s stroke or the possibility that a president could survive an assassination attempt that leaves him unable to conduct his duties (imagine Kennedy surviving Dallas).

I mentioned in an earlier thread, if the Cabinet invokes the 25th Amendment, Trump could immediately send a letter to Congress saying he’s fine, thereby reassuming the powers of the office, and immediate fire the entire cabinet (they serve at the pleasure of the president) before they could send the second letter that would trigger Congressional review. That’s a real constitutional crisis that (hopefully in a rational world) results in impeachment proceedings.

Trump’s unfit for office. And that in and of itself is grounds for impeachment, based on what the Founders themselves said of impeachment. And really, that’s our best option. But there doesn’t seem to be the political will to make it happen.

Pence definitely moved to the bottom of my list now. He would have inflected it with more values bullshit too I think.

I believe we also have a Bloomberg lodestar sighting. Someone said he’s used it before.

re: #189 Ace-o-aces

This has been a far right hobby horse for a while. I saw more than a bit of it in my Federalist Society days. The idea is based on some arcane notion of how one’s birth determines one’s loyalty. As if there’s a difference between being born 20 miles north or 20 miles south of a river. And then there’s a whole thing about how because a parent might not “be subject to the jurisdiction” of the US (which they take to mean “illegal”), then that calls into question an infant’s loyalty. None of it makes any kind of sense in the modern world if you think about it for more than 15 seconds.

Nikki Haley is too far removed from the action and SHE IS NOT SMART ENOUGH TO HAVE WRITTEN THAT. (She is slimy enough to stage a palace coup, though, so there’s that.)

re: #169 jaunte

Local Houston news (CBS) just conducted a viewer poll to see who thought the NYT editorial was real or fiction (fake news!). Just 56% of respondents voted that it was real.

Was this a viewers call in poll? Cause the people who watch broadcast TV news and call in are significantly older than the electorate.
