Jackie Speier calls for Trumpís removal from office under 25th Amendment
San Jose Mercury-News ^ | August 16, 2017 | By CASEY TOLAN

A Bay Area congresswoman is calling for President Donald Trump to be removed from the presidency under a never-before-used constitutional provision.

Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, said on Tuesday that Trump should be removed from office with the 25th Amendment, following his latest comments blaming “many sides” for violence after white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Va.

“POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger,” Speier tweeted Tuesday night. “Time to invoke the 25th Amendment.”

Speier also quoted from Voltaire in a tweet: “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”

"Speier also quoted from Voltaire in a tweet: “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”

So, Speier thinks criticizing Antifa is grounds for removing the President. Well, I've got another Voltaire quote for her: "“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."

The left’s idea of political discourse is to psychiatrically gulag any opponents who see things different than them. See ‘Hate Crime Legislation, Back Door To Censorship’, http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/05/hate_crime_legislation_back_do.html

It’s call partisan tolerance — only of approved viewpoint.

Do these insane Liberal terrorists think all the millions who voted for Trump are going to roll over and say “oh well?” No way in Hades would be my guess, what’s yours?

I realize his approach to matters of state are foreign and troubling to so many people who have advanced degrees in window washing and gutter watching, but it's called LEADERSHIP. If you google or Bing the word, you may comprehend what the president was elected by the citizens of this nation.
I heard Sharpton and ole Jackie spent some private time at that island where Budda has his own private shack.

They think if you repeat a lie often enough more people will believe it. And coming from such a “normal person as Jackie he must be insane.

Trump spoke the truth about culpability. And about what historical figure will be the next target.
Forget Voltaire. An Orwellian take on liberal deceit is more appropriate.

“In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act”

Yet again, a progressive is projecting. This is comical: “he should be removed because he disagrees with me and is therefore nuts”.

Comically, Trumps statement is far closer to the truth than the statements by many of those condemning his words. They seem to think they actually have power.

But the violence and destruction in Baltimore on “O’s” watch was OK?
