    Lost on the President Donald Trump-hating pundits who weighed in on the second and final debate with former Vice President Joe Biden was Trump's energy and focus. The man just recovered from COVID-19. Male and 74 years old, Trump is in the "high-risk" category. His weight makes him "comorbid." Yet, there he was, still throwing heat at the end of the standing 90-minute debate, having spoken earlier that day at a typically raucous love fest/campaign rally. Trump handily defeated Biden, who noticeably tired by the end of this second and final debate. Yes, nearly all polls show Biden ahead both...

    Public congressional approval ratings currently stand at 18%. This is a result of the manifest inability of the Senate to enact significant legislation by reason of the three-fifths cloture rule and the restriction on Senate amendments to legislation by the majority leader’s device of ‘filling the tree’ with trivial amendments, only slightly relaxed by Senator Mc Connell, and the practice of House Speakers of both parties of refusing to call up bills unless they can be passed without the aid of the opposing party. In 1946, the then Senate Majority leader, Robert Taft, declared “I have always said that I...

    On September 18, 1969, the U.S. House... voted by an overwhelming 338 to 70 to send a constitutional amendment to the Senate that would have dismantled the Electoral College, the indirect system by which Americans elect the president and vice president... The House vote, which came in the wake of an extraordinarily close presidential election, mirrored national sentiment about scrapping an electoral system that allowed a candidate to win the presidency even while losing the popular vote. A 1968 Gallup poll found that 80 percent of Americans believed it was time to elect the nation's highest office by direct popular...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called on President Trump's cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. Waters called the president the "most deplorable human being" she has ever met and said he must be stopped in an interview with MSNBC this weekend. "It is time for Section 4 of Amendment 25 to be put in place," Waters said. "His cabinet should send to Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker, as identified in the Constitution, that this man should be removed from office."

    CBS All Access’s The Good Fight will explore Donald Trump’s impeachment in an upcoming episode. Rather than having the traditional CBS executive Q&A, at which Reporters Who Cover Television take turns excoriating the network for lack of diversity, the network held one of the most interesting panels of this TCA to date, in which various showrunners took questions about politics and social issues on television. The Good Fight stole the show when EP Robert King told TV critics at TCA on Saturday about an upcoming episode in which the DNC seeks guidance from series’ law firm about the legal case...

    Sometimes, things just all seem to come together. In his 60 Minutes interview, fired former FBI acting director Andrew McCabe threw a ton of shade on Justice Department operative Rod Rosenstein, effectively saying that yes, there was a Deep State coup attempt against President Trump, but Rosenstein Did It. It was all his fault. In the absence of any smoking gun against President Trump from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, that suggests President Trump's deep state opponents are now turning on each other. I mentioned that a few days ago here, and it's even more obvious in Technicolor in the 60...

    Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a 2020 presidential hopeful, on Sunday defended using the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office if Trump administration officials deemed him unfit. Ms. Warren said at a campaign rally in Las Vegas that administration officials are obligated to take the extreme path of invoking the 25th Amendment, The Nevada Independent reported. “My point here is that if they believe that Donald Trump cannot fulfill the obligations of his office, then they have a constitutional responsibility to invoke the 25th Amendment,” Ms. Warren said, according to the newspaper. “Their loyalty under law is not to...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a 2020 candidate for president, on Sunday endorsed the idea of President Trump's team invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office if the circumstances call for it. “My point here is that if they believe that Donald Trump cannot fulfill the obligations of his office, then they have a constitutional responsibility to invoke the 25th Amendment,” Warren said during a press conference following a campaign rally in Las Vegas. “Their loyalty under law is not to him personally. It is to the Constitution of the United States and to the people of United States.”...

    Disgraced former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe has provided clear evidence that in 2017 a small cabal of high-level officials inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) weighed whether to attempt to remove the duly-elected president of the United States. McCabe claims that he and others at the top of the FBI and DOJ held multiple discussions about invoking the Constitution’s 25th Amendment to declare President Trump unfit for office and install the vice president in his place. Is this proof that a rolling bloodless coup really existed within the government? McCabe himself previously provided false information to the DOJ, for...

"We're going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people in under oath and find out, through questioning, who's telling the truth because the underlying accusation is beyond stunning," Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said...

    **SNIP** CBS reporter Scott Pelley, who interviewed McCabe for Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” said Thursday that McCabe told him using the 25th Amendment was discussed and that officials were “counting noses” — or speculating on who might support such an endeavor. “There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment,” Pelley said. “And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.” In...

    The former deputy director of the FBI participated in discussions to stage a coup d’état to remove President Trump from office, leftist law professor Alan Dershowitz said last night. Dershowitz leveled the charge after Andrew McCabe, the disgraced former G-man, surfaced in a preview of an interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes, during which he admitted that he and his colleagues discussed using the 25th Amendment to bring down Trump. The amendment governs removing the president from office for reason of incapacity. McCabe and his putative co-conspirators discussed the plan just after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz on Thursday said the Department of Justice’s discussions to employ the 25th Amendment to oust President Trump-- if true-- amounted to a coup. Dershowitz appeared on Fox News’ “Tuck Carlson Tonight,” to give his take on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s descriptions of Justice Department meetings where he said officials discussed ousting the president. Evoking the 25th Amendment, Dershowitz said, would a fundamental misuse of its original purpose. It was originally “about Woodrow Wilson having a stroke. It’s about a president being shot and not being able to perform his office,” Dershowitz added.

    Josh Charles is the latest member of the Hollywood Left to go on a tirade against the Trump administration. The television and movie star, who you might have seen on the hit show “The Good Wife,” apparently has had enough with Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and his supporters. With the Democrats now in control of the House, and the government shutdown dragging on, Charles took to social media to declare that he’s “sick” of this “motherf**ker” Trump, and “f**k” every single person who supports him (via Fox News): “I’m so sick of this motherf-----. Just so sick. This...

    On Saturday’s “AM Joy,” host Joy Reid discussed the anonymous New York Times op-ed and said, “far be it from me to agree with Sarah Huckabee Sanders on something, but nobody elected whoever this is to run the country.” Reid began by stating, “Of course, steering the administration in the right direction didn’t involve stopping the separation and caging of immigrant children or using the constitutional option of removing Trump by the 25th Amendment. No, the right direction is apparently the one where the ‘resistor’ gets to preserve the things they like.” Reid also cited a New Yorker piece by...
