The 25th/ Thanks to Speaker Pelosi for doing every last thing she is allowed.

RE: 25th Amendment


OCT, 2020
House Democrats’ new bill on the 25th Amendment, explained
It’s doubtful the Republican-led Senate will move on the bill, so it’s unlikely to become law anytime soon.

*The Constitution’s 25th Amendment, ratified in 1967, governs presidential succession and the transfer of power from an incapacitated president.

*Part of the amendment says a vice president and a majority of the Cabinet can declare that a president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” It also says Congress can appoint a group in place of the Cabinet to make the same declaration.

*House Democrats introduced a bill to create a new body that would take over the role of the Cabinet accordingly. It would not grant Congress the ability to invoke the 25th Amendment.

*It’s doubtful the Republican-led Senate will move on the bill, so it’s unlikely to become law anytime soon.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., unveiled a bill Oct. 9 to establish a commission that could be tasked with determining if a president is no longer fit for office.

The bill from Raskin, a former constitutional scholar, comes on the heels of President Donald Trump’s Oct. 2 announcement of his positive COVID-19 test. T
he bill would create what would be known as the ‘‘Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of the Office” in accordance with the 25th Amendment to the Constitution.

The commission would not have the unilateral power to invoke the 25th Amendment and kick Trump or any future president out of the White House. Pelosi and Raskin insisted in a press conference that the move was unrelated to the election less than a month away.

This is not about President Trump,” said Pelosi. “He will face the judgment of the voters. But he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents.”

Interesting knowledge to have on hand when discussing the process of the 25th Amendment.

The most Pelosi & Raskin could do within the powers of their office, is to appoint a seperate commission, though it is clear that McConnell's Senate would never let this see the light of day.

I believe this new commission would be useful for the future, should the opportunity be ours if we vote ourselves a 2020 trifecta.

This brings another opportunity to set powers to examine the feasibility of the 25th should it be necessary someday. *Such as, in the incapacitation of the President by, perhaps Covid-19 debilitation.*

Right now however, the 25th Commission as well as the 25th as it currently is stated, is stoppped from even being addressed by the GOP majority.

And yes, as with Pelosi & Raskin, any creation of policy protections for our US Govt, relies on a vast experience & knowledge of Constitutional Law.

Grateful we have both the experienced & Constitutionally educated leaders making inroads towards Building Back a Better & more sound system.

I am grateful that such an enormous task is in the capable hands of our experienced Democratic Leaders.

West Texas man impersonates police, confronts actual police
Midland Reporter-Telegram | on October 7, 2014

"A 41-year-old Midland man was arrested Sunday after he impersonated a police officer and confronted an actual police detective, according to court documents.

Eleazar Cisneros was being held Monday on a $25,000 bond for a third-degree felony charge of impersonating or exerting the functions of a public servant.

A Midland police detective was in an unmarked vehicle at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday in a parking lot.
Another vehicle, driven by Cisneros, pulled up next to his vehicle and parked. He approached the detective's vehicle and knocked very aggressively on the window in order to initiate contact.
Cisneros told him he had cut him off with his vehicle and that he was a police officer, not knowing that the detective was a licensed peace officer." 🙄

(He's been bought $$.)



This explains why the PD said, "its not my jurisdiction."
Gee, too bad!
