  • Gordon Humphrey: "The Nation Needs To Be Rid Of This Vile President," Trump "Personifies Evil"

    GORDON HUMPHREY: The nation needs to be rid of this vile president. His vileness is so great as to personify evil. We need to be rid of this man, and Congress has the power to do this under the Constitution... by invoking the 25th Amendment... Which would transfer his powers to the vice president. There isn't a moment to lose. Members of Congress need to stand up, and show some courage and some principle, and put the country, and its future, and our hopes, in front of their selfish personal political ambitions.
  • Oregon's Earl Blumenauer to skip State of the Union, will send DREAMer instead

    On Monday, Blumenauer took to Facebook again, to announce he'll be sending a DACA recipient, or DREAMer, to "remind Trump that these are real people with families and jobs, who are vital to our communities."...In social media posts, the congressman has called the president's actions, specifically his use of a vulgar term to describe some countries in Africa, "shameful," "disgraceful" and "racist." Last year, he introduced legislation called the "No TRUMP Act" after reports that federal officials spent taxpayer dollars at Trump-owned properties. Additionally, he introduced a bill that would make it easier to remove the president via the 25th...
  • Trump in 'excellent health' after physical exam, doctor says

    President Trump’s doctor said Friday night after a full medical exam that the president is in “excellent” health. “The president’s physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well,” said Dr. Ronnie Jackson in a statement provided by the White House. “The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday.” […] Critics have been accusing Mr. Trump of faltering mental abilities. The presidential physical exams do not normally include mental health evaluations, and this one didn’t, either. …
  • [Vanity] Research on Dr. Bandy X. Lee -- the "professor" who is accusing Trump of unravelling

    Various, but mostly Yale
    Was having an argument on Twitter last night regarding Dr. Bandy X. Lee from Yale and found out some data that you all may find useful. First, who is Bandy X. Lee? She is the shrink who's made appearances since the inauguration of President Trump to accuse him of being crazy. She is the tip of the "25th Amendment" spear that is currently being thrust at him. Typical of recent articles appearing in the media recently is this one from MSN: A Yale University psychiatry professor told US lawmakers that she believes Donald Trump'smental health is "unravelling" in a presentation...
  • Axios’ Swan: Some Wolff Claims “Complete Nonsense, Liberal Fantasy”

    Kudos to Jonathan Swan of the Mike Allen/Jim VandeHei Axios for being one of the rare MSM voices to call out Michael Wolff for inaccurate reporting. Appearing on Chris Matthews’ Hardball this evening, the Australian Swan hit Wolff on two of his claims. First, Swan said that “it is complete nonsense that it is 100%, as Michael Wolff claims,” that all White House staffers believe that President Trump is unfit for office. “That is just absurd,” said Swan. A bit later, Swan called the notion that President Trump would be removed from office via the 25th Amendment “a left-wing, liberal...

    Donald Trump will attempt to end speculation about his mental and physical suitability for the presidency next week by undergoing a formal health check. The US president is to be examined by the same doctor as his predecessor Barack Obama, and a summary of the results will be made public. The physical test will last around two hours and include blood and urine tests, heart checks and even questions about his sleeping habits and sex life, according to medical experts. It will be carried out at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on the edge of Washington DC, the country’s...

    It was strange to see Carl Bernstein praising Fox News on CNN today. But Bernstein had an ulterior motive. He was trying to butter up Fox News in order to lure it into providing the ammo to blast President Trump out of office.

Bernstein seemed confident that they would find that most think that Trump is unfit. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Psychiatrist Who Raised Concerns About Trump’s Mental Health Wants To ‘Contain’ Him

    Yale psychiatry professor Bandy Lee has been raising concerns about President Trump’s mental health for over a year and suggested in a new interview that Trump should be physically contained for an “urgent evaluation” to determine his mental state. In a Vox interview published Saturday, reporter Eliza Barclay asks Lee, “Okay, so you’re calling for an evaluation; you’re serious about that. How could he possibly be evaluated, since it seems like he wouldn’t voluntarily do it?” Lee responded, “We encounter this often in mental health. Those who most require an evaluation are the least likely to submit to one. That...
  • So why hasn't anyone ever seen Trump's supposed dementia?

    01/06/2018 10:40:14 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 61 replies ^ | Monica Showalter
    Like anyone else, politicians do get old, and when they do, their age frequently becomes obvious in public. One example is House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who has repeatedly slurred her speech and spoken gibberish, both of which point to declining mental capabilities. Politicians also get life-threatening illnesses, such as cancer. Whether or not you like John McCain, his brain cancer was the likely culprit for his inability to speak clearly during his questioning of James Comey last month, something most people can look upon with compassion. Then there are politicians who try to hide that there are any health...

    Geraldo Rivera fiercely defended President Trump against accusations of mental incompetency Friday morning, saying the president has never been more capable and “intellectually in charge of himself” than he is now. Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Mr. Rivera was asked to weigh in on reports that politicians and mental health experts are openly questioning the mental fitness of Mr. Trump. “That infuriates me,” Mr. Rivera responded. “It is a slander, low-down and dirty. It is absolutely false.” ~snip~ “There’s not a person watching right now, who owns a single share of stock, who isn’t better off today than when President...

    A profile of Steve Bannon indicates that the Breitbart chief is getting increasingly frustrated with President Donald Trump, and might tap into his own presidential ambitions in the coming years. Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman wrote an extensive report stating that the former White House chief strategist has expressed concern to various aides about the longevity of Trump’s presidency. Even though Trump and Bannon are believed to be still in close contact with each other, the latter is unhappy with the direction of current administration and starting to think his own direct intervention is needed for national politics. In October, Bannon...

    For more than a decade, the American people had to endure the destructive polices of Democrats, their media, and the unelected in many government agencies whose inflicted their desires on the rest of us. With the election of President Donald Trump, the left has become unhinged as the surgical removal of their impediments moves along. In a clear illustration of the pot calling the kettle black, Duty to Warn's leader, "psychologist" Dr. John Gartner, says his agenda isn't partisan but wants to help Democrats retake the House so they can "contain" and eventually invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Donald...

    Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton's alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? Brain damage from inhaling too much hairspray? A brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can't keep up? Maybe it's a pesky case of dysphasia, the condition Trump's used-to-be-spokesperson Katrina...

    Saying that "people close to him during the campaign told me had early stages of dementia," Joe Scarborough has made an impassioned plea for the removal of President Trump from office. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough also cited a New York Daily News editorial calling Trump "mad," in the sense of insane. Scarborough, noting the imminent risk of war with North Korea, called out by name General Mattis, Rex Tillerson and Mike Pence, calling on them to remove Trump, claiming that the current situation is what the 25th amendment was drafted for.

    In order to remove and silence political dissidents, the old Soviet Union would declare them insane, thus justifying their confinement in institutions. We are witnessing a strange mirror-image today, in which the MSM regularly suggests that President Trump is nuts–to use a technical psychiatric term. A predicate for a call to remove him from office, perhaps. [snip] We saw the same phenomenon on CNN this morning, with Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota taking turns suggesting that President Trump doesn’t have a “grasp of reality,” and that there are questions about his ability to “realize the truth.” View the video here.

    The 25th Amendment is the ultimate constitutional "check" — a corrective mechanism for an American president who is physically or psychologically unable to lead. Most important, it grants legal authority to those closest to power — first, the vice president and Cabinet members, then members of Congress — to stage an intervention. At the very least, these individuals are authorized to call a temporary timeout if the president is judged unfit to govern. Is America today in need of such an unprecedented intervention? Pundits and politicians alike have called for the amendment’s implementation over the past few months. But it...

    Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson, a former senior aide to President George W. Bush, used his Friday op-ed to warn establishment Republicans that “the time for panic and decision is upon us.” Gerson urges Republicans to join Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) in publicly raising two questions: “Is Trump psychologically and morally equipped to be president? And could his unfitness cause permanent damage to the country?” If the reports are true that the majority of Senate Republicans agree with Corker’s comment that Trump could cause “World War III,” then Gerson exhorts them to publicly act on their convictions. Though Gerson does not...

Today, it was CNN’s turn, on Reliable Sources, to beat the remove-Trump-from-office drum. And who better to lead the charge than Jennifer Rubin, whom host Brian Stelter, managing to keep a straight face, introduced as a “conservative columnist.” View the video here.
