The events of January 6th, 2021, have sent things in motion that could have lasting effects on our democratic process and our country as a whole.
To say that the pro-Trump supporters’ raid into the Capitol building is a dark stain on America would be an understatement.
But it’s an even darker stain on the reputation of conservatives a whole. After yesterday, we will now all be lumped in with the people who breeched the Capitol, and the Right’s critics will all say that this is what we wanted to happen.
For the record, it’s not. We are supposed to be the party of law and order, and true conservatives are sickened by this.
That being said, this should have been stopped before it even started—and of course, the finger of blame is being leveled at the man whose name appeared on the shirts, hats, and flags that the rioters had with them: Donald J. Trump.
And why wouldn’t it?
He’s been fighting to keep a position that he (and a lot of us) feel is being stolen from him. The events that led to his loss to Joe Biden are suspicious at best, fraudulent at worst.
Inciter Of Violence? Or Fighter For Truth?
So, in response to that, he’s been fighting for the last two months.
His words and rhetoric have been that of a fighter, and when his words fired up the more extreme elements of his supporters and they took up inadvisable actions, critics can only blame the man that fired them up in the first place.
But that finger-pointing may have gone too far. Just since yesterday afternoon, rumors have been swirling of an attempt to remove Trump from office via the 25th Amendment.
This is all in reference to Section IV of the Amendment which states, “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.”
For some, this verbiage means that Congress can remove the president due to him being mentally unable or incapable of doing the job as commander-in-chief.
Sort of like a bureaucratic Baker Act.
The problem here is that Trump isn’t mentally incapacitated, nor is he a danger to himself or his country.
He’s simply a man, a President who has been fighting diligently to right a wrong he believes to have occurred.
He’s not crazy.
He’s not even in cognitive decline.
These people are talking about removing him simply due to the actions of others, mistakenly placing blame on him for inciting such violence.
Democrat Snowflakes Beg For Trump’s Removal
This all started when the Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee begged Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office for the last two weeks of his term.
In a letter, the Committee said, “President Trump remained silent even as insurrections broke windows, threatened U.S. Capitol Police, and scaled the walls of the Capitol. Earlier in the morning, President Trump held a rally at the White House and told protesters ‘I’ll be with you’ and encouraged them to march to the Capitol to protest the certification of the electoral college votes.”
And the flaw in the thinking shows up right there.
Trump encouraged them to “march to the Capitol to protest” – PROTEST – not incite a riot or try to storm the legislature.
Is the House of Representatives now dictating what can and cannot be protested? Because if it is, that’s not an American ideal; it’s a communist one—and it should not be taken seriously in the United States.
Trump won’t be removed.
He’ll serve the remainder of his term and have to deal with the never-ending consequences of crossing the people with REAL power in our world, the bureaucrats in DC.
Trump will be dealing with lawsuits and criticism till the day he dies…
All because he wanted to fix this great country of ours.
It’s a shame that this will the closing moment of what many believe to be one of the most impactful presidencies of all time.
His lasting legacy should be of duty and sacrifice, not this…
But we don’t get to choose how we’re remembered.
