GOP Calls to Invoke 25th Amendment After
Special Counsel Casts Doubt on Biden’s
Mental Acuity: ‘This Man Has the Nuclear Codes’

Original Article

Following Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report, which included stunning revelations of the deterioration of President Joe Biden’s mental state, Republican officials are calling to invoke the 25th Amendment. They state that “if ever there were a time to do so, now would be it,” and insist that if the president “is not competent to stand trial, then he is certainly not competent to lead the free world.” While highlighting evidence of America’s oldest ever president “willfully” mishandling classified documents, Special Counsel Hur’s report details Biden’s significant cognitive decline — perhaps more politically damning than his handling of classified materials.

I do remember reading a short article, shortly after Biden took office, that the House or Senate, don't remember which, have passed something denying Biden the right to launch missiles. I believed it.

Even without his mental decline he is unfit for office, but now that his own Justice Dept. admits this, he should be removed immediately. If he can't stand trial for his actions, stealing and mishandling classified docs because of his metal decline then he sure as hell can't and shouldn't run this country, which we all have know since day one, he has almost destroyed us as it is. Seeing this fool gloat about this stupid Hurr decision just makes me want to barf. If there is ever proof of a two tiered Justice system this is one of the most glaring. IMPEACH Biden, MAGA!

One more comment.. this man has always been a liar, a fool, arrogant and mean. I have not one scintilla of sympathy for him, for all the kickbacks from China, and Ukraine to name two, thinking and acting like he is above the law, classified docs he stole when he was a senator as well as VP, and for all the dirty tricks he has levelled on Trump, as well as the ruination of our country, where people can hardly afford to go to the grocery store, not one sympathetic thought for his decline mentally or physically, will he get from me. He should be impeached but if that won't do then Amendment 25 him, it is PAST time for him to go. As far as Kamilla is concerned, even the Dems don't like her, and she will have no chance in hell as being his replacement more than for a short time. Then the Dems have a dilema, not wanting her and putting another in her place for his replacement, in office or on the ticket! It will be interesting to watch! The Dems are finally reaping what they have sown, putting this fool in office when they all knew he was first a fool, then a fool who has lost his cognitive abilities, in 2020 and now even more today. It won't be long before he assumes the fetal position. Send him back to the beach. MAGA!!

We know that nothing happens by chance in the democrat party and this report is no different. Why did they release this damning report? I believe they did it because they know Biden is not going to be on the ballot in November and they are setting him up with a Get Out Of Jail Free Card regarding all the criminal activities he and his corrupt family have been up to for decades. Who is going to hold him accountable now knowing it has been determined that he is incompetent to stand trial. I don’t believe this is a coincidence. Dems just made sure that old Joe gets to ride off into the sunset without fear of facing justice. They know he is not going to be the nominee but now have given him protection against any prosecution. I do believe they plan on bringing out Michelle Obama for the win. I could be wrong but just think about the full court press they would use to promote her. Gavin can’t touch her in terms of electability. It would be a complete blitz and I believe it is the only play they have left. They protect Biden and give him an out and then bring out their super nominee.

Hur's report is an official legal document of the United States Department of Justice. It is not only deeply disturbing, it is absolutely terrifying. Now that this is the official opinion of Biden's own staff, our enemies will seek to capitalize on this extraordinary disaster. The world just became an even more dangerous place than it was 24 hours ago. In a sane world, Biden should be facing two choices today; the Big House or the Old Folks House. But definitely not the White House. The 25th Amendment must be invoked if he does not step down.

Biden's been an arrogant, corrupt buffoon since he slid into DC from DE like a slug back in the early 70's. I often confuse my democrat Obama loving relative when I ask them to name ONE thing Biden has done good for the country. One cousin who is the same age as I am (we were more like brothers growing up) gets so mad when I make fun of the Joetard that I got called a White Nationalist MAGA supporter in Blackface. My latest joke is Biden is so stupid that he probably believes the nuclear football will be used at kickoff in this Sunday's Superbowl. The real issue is it's not a joke that he's my Commander-in-Chief while the guy I support and voted for twice gets vilified.

Student Loan Forgiveness: Morally Reprehensible

Posted by Imright 4/20/2024 2:10:04 AM Post Reply
Barack Obama set the stage in 2015 for the student loan forgiveness fiasco when he announced the 'America's College Promise' proposal to make two years of community college free. On the proposal's web page is this: "Students should be able to get the knowledge and the skills they need without taking on decades worth of student debt." (emphasis mine) Obama's idea has now been extended to include four-year colleges. His lackey, that joke who currently occupies the Bully Pulpit, is simply forwarding his boss' idea. The problem for Biden is that Obama's idea is neither legal nor morally acceptable. An article in The Conversation makes a good moral case for not

They would have blanched at relying on serial perjurer Michael Cohen as a star witness. They would have recognized the inherent ambiguity over whether the hush payments to Stormy Daniels were personal payments or campaign expenses.
