As the nation enjoyed a vacation day in celebration of President George Washington’s Birthday, deep-state rats remain busy jumping ships and publishing personal storyboards to validate their egocentricity and attempt to cushion their finances for any potential legal defense just ahead. What nearly all the media leave out in the most recent drama regarding the 25th Amendment to the Constitution and President Trump is that the underlying circumstances were not credible or actionable. I will get to that in a moment. Here is one article and one video take from Sunday’s mainstream media parade:

The bureaucratic coup concocted by the FBI and DOJ originated from an unsubstantiated Russian dossier paid for by the Clinton campaign and DNC. The controversial dossier was the underlying impetus via the FISA court to launch an illegal surveillance campaign during the 2016 election, then a subsequent 2-year special counsel investigation that produced a Senate Intelligence Committee bipartisan conclusion that there is no evidence of Russian collusion by the POTUS or his campaign.
None of it is not a conspiracy theory, but it’s a seditious conspiracy launched by deep-state players as per U.S. Code §2384 on “Sedition and Subversive Activities.” Senior U.S. law enforcement officials conspired to recruit the Vice President and a majority of cabinet members to state in writing to the Senate’s president pro tempore and the House speaker that the POTUS is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
More importantly, the underlying circumstances that the conspirators relied upon to hatch their plan was a pipe dream, at best, and a fantasy that would not have held any weight in a righteous court of law.

The Myth of Donald Trump’s Mental Illness- Do not medicalize political judgments… “The ‘Goldwater rule’ bars members of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) from diagnosing at a distance public figures whom they have not personally examined. It is so named because it was created in response to psychiatric critiques of 1964 Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater, in which APA members described the candidate as ‘a dangerous lunatic,’ a repressed homosexual, a self-hating half-Jew, a paranoid schizophrenic, and ‘a mass-murderer at heart,’ just like ‘Hitler, Castro, Stalin and other known schizophrenic leaders’… The unethical conduct the APA condemned, which gave value judgments a pseudoscientific veneer, was fundamentally similar to the professional practices the APA endorsed. Psychiatric diagnoses, which equate things people say and do with diseases, are inherently subjective, cannot be verified by biological tests, and tell us nothing about etiology. Even if a psychiatrist talked to Trump at length and had him complete a battery of questionnaires before concluding that he suffers from narcissistic personality disorder, the diagnosis would not tell us anything important that we don’t already know.” – Reason, May 2018
Alan Dershowitz: Rosenstein talk of 25th Amendment showed he was ‘watching House of Cards instead of reading the Constitution’… “Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz mocked Justice Department officials Friday… ‘The Constitution is clear as can be. The 25th Amendment is applicable only if you are incapacitated. It is not a substitute for impeachment, it is not a substitute for an election and if [deputy attorney general] Rod Rosenstein actually thought about and suggested wiring the president, invoking the 25th Amendment, he should be fired before he has the opportunity to resign. He should be disgraced.’” – Washington Examiner, Feb. 15
In order to grasp the magnitude of the constitutional crisis that would ensue if the conspirators actually acted upon their machinations, one must take into consideration the process that would have followed as prescribed in the 25th Amendment:
- If the POTUS conveyed to the same congressional figures that he was capable of performing his duties as POTUS, he would once again be POTUS after four days.
- If the Vice President and the cabinet majority reiterated their declaration within those four days that the POTUS was unfit to run the country, Congress would settle the dispute.
- In order to remove the POTUS, it would require a two-thirds vote of both houses within 21 days, during which time the POTUS sits in the penalty box and the Vice President governs the country.
- If Congress was unable to attain a two-thirds majority, the POTUS “shall resume the powers and duties of his office.”
There is no doubt that Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Strzok, Brennan, Page, and many others despised the new POTUS and saw him as a president “who needed to be reined in.” The mistake they made was to put personality before principles. It is frightening to consider the domestic political inferno that would take place if the conspirators hatched their plan, as a voter uprising would have spilled into the streets and been violently suppressed by the radical left and domestic terror groups such as Antifa.
The fake news propaganda that permeates our national airwaves and inhibits truth from reaching the public much sooner has risen to such ridiculous levels that even well-respected journalists are risking the blacklist by speaking out.
CBS’s Lara Logan on Media Bias: ‘Unless You Seek out Breitbart,’ You Won’t See the ‘Other Side’… “Lara Logan, foreign correspondent for CBS’s 60 Minutes… Navy SEAL Mike Ritland characterized U.S. news media as ‘absurdly left-leaning’ and supportive of Democrats, further describing the status quo of American news media’s left-wing and partisan Democrat biases as a ‘huge fucking problem’ and ‘disaster for this country.’ Logan concurred, ‘I agree with that. That’s true.’ – Breitbart, Feb. 18
