Democrats just don’t seem to learn from their mistakes! The latest example of that is Oregon House Democrat Earl Blumenauer’s attempt to do what the DNC did during this last election to Bernie Sanders, take away the people’s vote and force a candidate upon them! Or even worse, oust a sitting president!
“It is hard to imagine a better group to work with the vice president to examine whether the president is able to discharge the duties of the office. When there are questions about the president’s ability to fulfill his or her constitutional responsibilities, it is in the country’s best interest to have a mechanism in place that works effectively,” Blumenauer said in a statement.
Blumenauer’s proposal (H.R. 2093) would allow the vice president and majority of cabinet officers to remove a sitting president if they declared he was unfit to serve. The vice president would then take over as the sitting president.
It also states that if the president refused to leave office than Congress and Senate would need two-thirds of the vote in order to force his resignation.
Blumenauer also repeatedly mentioned how a “mentally unstable president,” a talking point used against Pres. Trump repeatedly throughout the election by Democrats such as Blumenauer himself, Sen. Al Franken, Rep. Ted Lieu, Rep. John Yarmuth, and ironically Nancy Pelosi, could simply fire all of his cabinet members in order to avoid being ousted.
“Because the cabinet can be fired by the president, there is a natural bias that would make them reluctant to acknowledge the president’s inability to serve. It’s time to revisit and strengthen the Amendment and make sure there is a reliable mechanism in place if the president becomes unable to discharge the powers and duties of office,” Blumenauer said.
Blumenauer has openly stated on the House floor that he worried about Trump’s “erratic” behavior while pointing to Trump’s statements over voter fraud, which was subsequently proven right..
Rep. Blumenauer’s attempts to amend the 25th amendment is proof positive Democrats are still looking for ways in order to oust Pres. Trump from office as well as ensure that only people former presidents decide on are elected in the future.
Establishment Democrats (and probably some Republicans) continue to work hard to take away the American public’s right to vote, while at the same time complaining that certain groups that Democrats need to vote for them are somehow having their vote taken away. The irony is simply mind-boggling!
