‘The Squad’s’ Rashida Tlaib Defends Saying Impeach The Motherf***er: ‘I Mean, I Was Right’

On Tuesday, far-left Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib reacted to former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial lawyers using video of her calling on Congress to “impeach the motherf***er” in regards to Trump.

Tlaib’s comments were originally made in 2019 before the January 6 attack on Capitol Hill. The ‘Squad’ member told MNSBC’s Chris Hayes she “was right” to make her comments.

Tlaib Doubles Down On ‘Impeach The Motherf***er’

“I mean, I was right,” Tlaib told Hayes on his MSNBC program “All In.”

“This is a person that’s been lawless,” Tlaib added. “Not only that,  it’s a crooked billionaire running his businesses out of the White House.”

Tlaib didn’t expand on her salacious claim that President Trump had done anything “crooked” regarding his businesses, and host Hayes didn’t ask.

“He was absolutely committing impeachable offenses,” she added.

Tlaib then turned her attention to the current impeachment trial.

“You know, this primary impeachment that you see before the Senate right now to convict him is for the violence on January 6, but for many of us, especially here in my district, we have saw [sic] that it was extremely corrupted that they were putting the Trump Organization first,” she said.

‘We Knew What He Was About, And We Called Him Out On It From Day One’

Tlaib continued, “They were putting the for-profit organization, his businesses, before the people’s business and making sure that, again, folks, we’re staying at the Trump Hotel to do all this.”

“And again, many of us didn’t wait for him to bribe a foreign government, nor did we wait in the 13th congressional district for a white supremacy attack on our capital,” the far left Democrat added.

“We knew what he was about, and we called him out on it from day one,” she insisted.

Tlaib vowed Democrats are “not going to hold back” when it comes to Trump and would definitely hold the former president “accountable.”

“We need to use every resource possible and convict this president, again, for the violence that he caused,” Tlaib finished.

Tlaib also doubled down on the Democrat strategy of portraying the violence at the Capitol as “white supremacy.” 

Commenting on statements made by impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin, who had argued that democracy was personal, Tlaib agreed. 

“It is. Chris, from my district alone, they were intentionally trying to throw out black votes right here in Detroit. And so for us it was extremely personal, that they were trying to use white supremacist rhetoric, trying to use that racist tone, and these conspiracy theories that led to the violence of January 6th.”

Tlaib got no pushback from Hayes on her claim, without evidence, that the Trump campaign team was “intentionally trying to throw out black votes.”

Pelosi Suggests Using 25th Amendment To Remove Trump From Office Before Election

On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi implied that she is looking at removing President Donald Trump from power  using the U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment.

Pelosi said to reporters during a press briefing, “Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow — come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment.”

Pelosi’s comments come after her Democratic House already impeached the President, though the Senate declined to convict.

The Purpose Of The 25th Amendment To The U.S. Constitution

Using the 25th Amendment to essentially undo the 2016 presidential election has been a topic of discussion among Democrats and Never Trump Republicans since Trump first stepped into the White House.

Enacted in 1967, the purpose of the 25th Amendment was two fold:

  • To ensure that the United States has an Acting President in times when the duly-elected president can no longer lead, due to death, illness, or some other factors.
  • To set in stone the line of succession.

For example, when President Ronald Reagan underwent surgery in 1985 and Vice President George H.W. Bush was Acting President for that time.

George W. Bush also transferred power to Vice President Dick Cheney while Bush underwent surgery.

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment allows for Congress and the Vice President to remove the President from power. From History.com:

Section 4 stipulates that when the vice president and a majority of a body of Congress declare in writing to the president pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House that the president is unable to perform the duties of the office, the vice president immediately becomes acting president.

Pelosi appears to be looking at this section of the 25th Amendment.

President Pelosi?

Speaker Pelosi’s mention of the 25th Amendment comes not just after impeachment, but also amid speculation that Pelosi herself could become Acting President in the event of election chaos.

The possibility of her becoming president has been raised by many including Pelosi herself.

It is unlikely, but possible, that if the issues with the election leave no clear winner, and if the House is unable to reach a conclusion before January 20, 2021, Pelosi could become Acting President.

25th Amendment Interest Rose After First Couple’s COVID-19 Diagnosis

After it was announced that President Trump and First Lady Melania were diagnosed with COVID-19 last week, interest in the 25th Amendment rose online.

CBS News reported, “(T)he news of his positive coronavirus test drove an immediate surge in Google searches for the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which lays out the succession for the executive branch should the president be incapacitated or deemed unable to carry out the duties of the presidency.

RELATED: Pelosi Signals She Is Prepared To Become Acting President If Election Descends Into Chaos

When White House communications director Alyssa Farah was asked if Vice President Mike Pence might have to become Acting President while Trump was at Walter Reed, she replied, “The president is in charge.”

Still, the pattern of trying to remove Trump from office and defy the results of the 2016 election are clear.

The Democrats spent most of Trump’s first term impeaching him.

Pelosi even threatened to advance impeachment a second time over Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

Now, Pelosi is talking about using the 25th Amendment.

Their mission since the 2016 election ended has been to undo its results.

If they care to be honest, Democrats might want to change the name of their party because their respect for democracy is at an all-time low.

That change is about as likely as President Nancy Pelosi ever happening.

Trump Responds To Ginsburg’s Dying Wish – Questions If It Actually Came From Her

After Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on Friday evening, it was widely reported that her final wish had been that no replacement be named to fill her vacant seat until after the election. President Donald Trump responded to this wish on Monday, questioning if it actually came from Ginsburg herself.

Trump Questions Whether Ginsburg Really Made Final Wish

“Well, I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by [Rep.] Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi?” Trump asked during a Fox News interview. “I would be more inclined to the second.”

Trump was referring to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

“That sounds like a Schumer deal, or maybe a Pelosi or Schifty Schiff that came out of the wind. Let’s see, I mean, maybe she did, maybe she didn’t,” Trump added. “Look, the bottom line is, we won the election. We have an obligation to do what is right and act as quickly as possible, we should act quickly because we’re going to have probably election things involved here.”

The president went on to say that his concerns over “fake ballots” in November make it especially important that the Supreme Court not be split in a 4-4 vote.

“We don’t want to have a tie, no we don’t, and we want to have nine justices, and we want to have somebody with a lot of talent,” Trump said of who he was considering to replace Ginsburg.

Immediately after Ginsburg died on Friday at the age of 87, NPR published a statement reportedly given by Ginsburg to her granddaughter Clara Spera that she dictated in the days before her death.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg allegedly said.

Trump Discusses Merrick Garland Controversy

Later in today’s interview, Trump talked about the controversy surrounding Barack Obama’s 2016 Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland, which was not pushed through by the Republican-controlled Senate. Trump blamed this situation on Obama, however, rather than on Garland.

“So I think Merrick Garland is an outstanding judge; I think he’s outstanding and I think he’s of outstanding intellect. He is liberal, that’s okay, but the only problem was — and this is up to the Senate — the only problem was President Obama did not have the Senate. I mean, I could go a step further, President Obama didn’t get a lot of judges,” Trump said. “That was an election of a different kind, we have the Senate.”

The president added that he is eager for the confirmation process to take place before the election on November 3, arguing that the last thing America needs is another negative experience during these trying times.

“I think [doing so] would be good for the Republican Party, and I think it would be good for everybody to get it over with because it’s always controversial,” Trump said. “And no matter who I pick, no matter how great the intellect, how brilliant the person … the Democrats will say, ‘This is terrible, this is terrible.'”

The Coronavirus: Is it Time to Panic?

By LifeZette Staff | January 31, 2020

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve probably read all the front-page headlines about a deadly outbreak that started in China and has been working it’s way into other areas of the world despite great efforts to contain it.

In fact, last Thursday the World Health Organization declared it a “global health emergency,” and at the press of a button, it seems, has started quite the world-wide panic…

But what are the facts?  Should you be concerned, and just how deadly is this new virus?
Well, as it turns out this new apocalyptic contagion is about as dangerous as the common flu.

RELATED: World Health Organization Declares Coronavirus a Global Health Emergency

Dr. Trish Perl, chief of infections diseases and geographic medicine at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center says, “So far the mortality rate for the virus is about the same as a bad year of the flu.”

So basically it’s just a different strain of the common flu?
Yeah, pretty much!

According to the CDC, the worst symptoms associated with the virus include Fever, Cough, and possible Shortness of breath.  Other symptoms that could arise are runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever, and maybe a general feeling of being unwell.

What you won’t hear from the news, or many official health sources, is information about how long the symptoms last.  I find that rather interesting because the coronavirus does not kill the vast majority of the people it infects.

Telling people that the virus is similar to the common flu and will most likely put you in bed for a week and then you’ll be fine, could calm the panic that they’ve started and that might be a little too anti-climatic for them.

If you read closely you’ll see first world countries are at little risk.  World health officials have noted several times that the highest risks were for countries with less sophisticated health care systems.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization commented at a recent press conference, “Our greatest concern is the potential for the virus to spread to countries with weaker health systems, and which are ill-prepared to deal with it.”

I don’t mean to take anyone’s health issues lightly, especially something like a virus that has taken human lives, but I also think it’s important to understand the reality of the situation.  And the fact is, if you are healthy and have a normal functioning immune system there is no need for panic.

The coronavirus has claimed about 140 lives at the time of this writing.  A life is a life, and I send my prayers and condolences to their loved ones.

What should you be worried about?
Even though 140 lives lost is a tragedy, it’s important for us to keep a perspective and understanding of what the most dangerous health risks are and what we should be doing to avoid them.  …If you live in an industrialized country like America, chronic disease is the real epidemic!

RELATED: Coronavirus Spreading: Flights Canceled, Four U.S. States Affected

This year alone worldwide, heart disease will claim 17.9 million lives, cancer 9.6 million lives, and diabetes 2.2 million lives.  Those are scary numbers!

The epidemic of chronic disease is nowhere near being contained. Currently 1.9 BILLION adults are overweight or obese.  These people are at great risk for developing heart disease, cancer and diabetes if they don’t already have it.

I don’t mean to frighten you, but the most dangerous diseases are already here in this country.  They are not spread by air-borne transmission, but by sedentary lifestyle, poor diet, and lack of exercise.
