Could Nancy Pelosi be the next president of the United States?

People like this are frightening. I thought enough people had gotten wise to this Louise Mensch-type crap. I thought that the worst of the lunatic fringe had been banished to the asylums (Mensch and Taylor). But obviously I continue to underestimate the blatant corruption and arrogance of people like this guy, a perfect example of those who push these impossible scenarios, and the number of my fellow citizens who continue to believe it.

Pelosi in the White House? If this guy represents what we’re turning out at our elite educational institutions and if he’s the kind of guy that we see as our ‘best and brightest’, then we are truly screwed.

And as for all the media outlets and personalities that push this garbage (tv, internet, radio, newspaper), they have become a bunch of bottom feeders collecting paychecks to ensure all the lies, accusations, and false claims keep coming. Funny, I was taught that a real journalist’s only duty is to inform. They have a duty to tell the truth. I only want FACTS and informed opinion, not all this damn journalistic malpractice and gaslighting. It’s why there’s all this sudden concern about ‘controlling the narrative’. Because they’re terrified of being exposed. I mean, think about it. Sitting Prez Hopey-Changey and his administration was financially and materially (FISC warrants, activating the ‘intelligence’ community, and kicking in money for the Dossier) INVOLVED in this act of sedition. We all KNEW the Clinton Creature was corrupt to the bone. But Hopey-Changey was supposed to be so Transparent and Transformational. That’s a really foul betrayal. Possibly the worst of all.

Could Nancy Pelosi be the next president of the United States?

It is unlikely, but now at least possible, that Nancy Pelosi will be the next president of the United States. It will not happen by election in 2020, but by succession to the White House this year. Some of you might recall that after the near assassination of Ronald Reagan, chaos ensued in the White House. Secretary of State Alexander Haig told reporters, "Constitutionally, gentlemen, you have the president, the vice president and the secretary of state, in that order." He added, "As for now, I am in control here, in the White House, pending the return of the vice president." He was wrong.

Other than the vice president, the Constitution does not specify an order of succession to the Oval Office, which is determined by federal statute. Under the Presidential Succession Act of 1947, the speaker of the House of Representatives, not the secretary of state, is in line for the presidency after the vice president. Therefore, if both Donald Trump and Mike Pence are either removed from office or resign, then Pelosi becomes president.

The removal or resignation of Trump and Pence has perhaps become more plausible with the New York Times revelation that the FBI opened an investigation into whether the president had been working for the Russians after he fired James Comey in 2017. This investigation aligns what former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele said in his derided but not debunked dossier that the "Russian regime has been cultivating, supporting, and assisting Trump for at least five years."

*

If there is evidence of Trump selling out to the Russians, and Pence took any part in covering it up, then the vice president could be found guilty of an impeachable crime or the concealment of a felony. According to the United States Code, "Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years."

So where do we go from here? What do we do about the recent news that the boys and girls in the FBI secretly opened an ‘investigation’ into a presidential candidate and his entire life. There are people under threat of imprisonment because these people were allowed to dig and snoop based on lies pushed by the Clinton DNC, the Obama Administration, and the ‘intelligence’ community. Mueller has pulled off the biggest Flim Flam of my lifetime. He’s gained for himself the power to sift through people’s lives until he finds something in their backgrounds that he can use against them (blackmail) to force them to ‘testify’ about Trump’s history of corruption. WTF???? If that isn’t some kind of crime, please tell me what is? It’s crazy that people don’t see what’s happening. Just the fact that after two years and millions of dollars later, Booby Mueller hasn’t found a damn thing and the only sign of ‘collusion’ with anyone (the Brits, Russian spooks and all that fraudulent ‘evidence’) is coming from the ‘left’ itself.

These people attempted to hijack an election. They perverted one of our most basic freedoms, the right to a legitimate process of electing those we want to REPRESENT us and guide our country. When that didn’t work, they created this RUSSIA!!! mess to destroy the incoming, duly-elected president and his administration. That’s on top of rigging a primary.

When I saw this article I thought it was the PERFECT illustration of what a worthless and obscene joke the ‘left’ has become. The saddest part is that they’ll never change. They’ve floated all these lies for so long they can’t give up now.

and they found no evidence that Trump did anything wrong. This was a total abuse of power by the Obama justice system and the FBI. I'm seeing lots of people saying that "the FBI was so afraid that Trump was in bed with Russians that they opened an investigation on him," but no one states outright that they found no evidence of that happening. We are seeing another blitz attack on the sitting president and I'm still wondering why he hasn't put a stop to it yet. He has the NSA transcripts that would show that Russia didn't hack the DNC computers. And he has information showing how the FBI had British intelligence agencies spying on him and then turning it over to the FBI. This should be just as illegal as them not having a warrant to do it.

But just like the next president doesn't arrest their predecessors for war crimes, I'm doubtful Trump would let any investigation go as high as Obama. But nothing happened without his say so.

Moon of Alabama as usual has taken this whole sham Russian nonsense apart.

@snoopydawg

Hillary actually did hijack the primary by working with DWS to reduce the number of debates from 20 the year before to only 6 and then scheduling them on nights when people would be doing something else. The first one was on the Saturday before Xmas when people would be at parties. The second one was during a sporting event that most of the country would be watching.

This was so that people couldn't see how bad a candidate Hillary was and so that people wouldn't hear what Bernie was offering.

Then there's Hillary's pied piper scam that had the media not covering the GOP's candidates except for Trump. This is election interference.

Then she pretty much slandered Trump by calling him Putin's puppet and saying that he was getting help from him. More election interference. Or attempted hijacking of the election.

Oh yeah. The media calling California for Hillary the night before the voting took place.

this whole mess in perspective. It’s all Kabuki.

But I still have to give credit, albeit grudgingly, to JW for keeping in there.

These worthless Dims should be getting their freaking faces OUT of in front of the tv cameras and back to taking.care of the people’s business. Let Mueller play his game but there are issues of importance to be taken care of. These ‘investigations’ and committees need to stop and these bastids need to work out immigration reform, the budget, healthcare coverage legislation... But hell no, this is what we’re going to be pummeled with for the next two years.

The government needs to get up and running and these jackals and hyenas need to be forced to get back to the ONLY reason they are where they are collecting the paychecks that all but about 70 are still getting (while millions do without).

Can you imagine the chaos surrounding the impeachment of both president and vice president..... and the assumption of the presidency by the opposing party??!

Pelosi is a superannuated waste of space, so how would that help?

I thought Pelosi said no impeachment? Not to mention that the elected Dems really don’t have a problem with Pence, which kind of puts this theory down. Is all the recent impeachment talk just wishful thinking ignited by Conngresswoman Tlaib going off script or did I miss something?
