Remember when the Democrats threatened to use the 25th Amendment to remove former President Trump from power?
Maybe that was a ploy all along. Maybe they really intended to invoke the 25th on current President Joe Biden and replace him with Vice President Kamala Harris.
Biden was a perfect Trojan Horse for the Left to use to win the White House, and now that he resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., he might be no longer useful to them.
And they have increasingly more evidence of his mental decline, which would make it easier to justify the use of the 25th Amendment.
Just this week, Biden once again was unable to remember the name of one of his cabinet secretaries and couldn’t even recall the name of the Pentagon.
The New York Post reported, “President Biden on Monday seemed to forget Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s name at a White House event — calling the Pentagon chief ‘the guy who runs that outfit over there.’
Biden was announcing the nomination of two female generals to lead US military combatant commands.
‘And I want to thank the sec — the, the, ah former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my — the guy who runs that outfit over there,’ Biden said.
‘I want to make sure we thank the secretary for all he’s done to try to implement what we just talked about. And for recommending these two women for promotion.’
Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, ‘Secretary Austin,’ while appearing to read from a teleprompter.”
When he was still in office, former President Trump warned Biden of the risk that the Democrats would use the 25th Amendment on him, saying, “The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration. As the expression goes, be careful what you wish for,” Trump said, reading from prepared remarks.
Democrats have been laying the groundwork to deem President Biden mentally unfit for months. Back in October, the Washington Post reported, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Jamie B. Raskin (D-Md.) plan to introduce legislation Friday that would create a commission to ‘help ensure effective and uninterrupted leadership” in the presidency.’
The panel would be called the Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office, ‘the body and process called for in the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,’ the offices of Pelosi and Raskin said in a statement announcing the move.”
The 25th Amendment was ratified to provide a backup plan for the line of succession in case of the incapacitation or death of a sitting president.
The president has to be unable to perform his duties to be replaced by the Vice President.
The 25th Amendment reads:
“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.”
As Joe Biden’s physical and mental health continues to falter, it begs the question: Will Joe Biden serve the entire four years of his term? Will he even be allowed to?
Time will tell. But right now, it doesn’t look good for Sleepy Joe.
