President Trump warned us of this back in October…
Almost a year ago, if you would have blinked, you just might have missed it. Yeah, the media paid attention to this for about 15 minutes.
It was then that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made a very minor splash in the Establishment Media when she announced introduced a bill creating commission to rule on any given president’s fitness for office.
Titled, “Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office”, this particular bill (HR 8548) technically died (maybe “suspended animation” is a better phrase) in Congress, or to be more specific, the bill “was not enacted” when first introduced on 9 Oct. 2020.
However, GovTrack.us notes; “Although this bill was not enacted, its provisions could have become law by being included in another bill. It is common for legislative text to be introduced concurrently in multiple bills (called companion bills), re-introduced in subsequent sessions of Congress in new bills, or added to larger bills (sometimes called omnibus bills).”
In other words, Pelosi can resuscitate HR 8548 anytime she wants, and possibly more importantly, as stealthily as she wants.
While Madame Speaker has certainly laid the groundwork for the Congress becoming a major player if and when the Chief Executive is considered incapacitated, she has also setup who exactly the Commission members would be.
When the Democrats first raised the possibility of ejecting President Trump via the 25th Amendment well over two years ago, their game plan was always from the perspective of using the president’s own cabinet against him.
This time she wants at least half of the Commission to be made up by even numbers of members of the House and Senate.
For her part, Pelosi was quoted at the time by the Daily Caller;
“This is not about President Trump,” Pelosi asserted Friday. “He will face the judgment of the voters. But he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents.”
Before his Twitter account was shutdown, President Trump warned of Pelosi planning to boot Biden and install Kamala Harris as the President of the United States;
Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris. The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!!!

Interestingly enough, the screamingly leftist The New Yorker cited that Biden’s mental decline has been in the back of Democrat minds for quite a while (emphasis mine);
Talk of Biden’s mental decline began during the Democratic primary campaign last year, as other candidates observed that Biden garbled sentences, misspoke, and failed to finish trains of thought in some debates.
Last spring, Bernie Sanders’s surrogates and supporters promoted the hashtag #WhereIsJoe, implying that Biden’s campaign was keeping him out of sight to hide mental infirmity. Glenn Greenwald, founder of the Intercept and an outspoken Sanders supporter, tweeted that “the steadfast, wilful refusal of Dem political & media elites to address what is increasingly visible to the naked eye — Biden’s serious cognitive decline — is frightening.”
All of a sudden, President Trump’s tweet doesn’t look so crazy after all, does it?
