It’s never happened in the history of the United States but a British political journalist thinks now would be a swell time for Vice-President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment. As a matter of fact, he is demanding that Pence act right now because President Trump isn’t mentally capable of leading us through the coronavirus pandemic crisis. In an open letter to Vice-President Pence, Mehdi Hasan writes in The Intercept that the 25th Amendment must be invoked and points to the relevant wording: “Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide,

Trump is the most capable and most intelligent President in many decades. Hard fact. And some British moron reporter thinks he has the right to even have an opinion on an American president, let alone push for removing him? I'd have serious trouble being civil with the fool if I was present when he said this.

Really scary to imagine our lives at this time with others in The White House. People like Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, John Kerry, AOC. Really good to know we have a President in The White House who cares about us all. We got lucky. We must stay lucky. Thank you from the bottom of my old and healthy heart PDT.

‘Proud teacher’ from Rhode Island offers to

You’ve probably heard the expression those who can, do, and those who can’t, teach. A Rhode Island public school teacher perhaps gave that chestnut a new meaning by allegedly taking to Twitter with an offer to pay someone infected with COVID-19 to cough on President Trump. The educator in question, who has subsequently deactivated her Twitter account that purportedly operated anonymously under the handle “Proud Teacher,” is said to teach English as a Second Language to middle schoolers. She previously taught in neighboring Massachusetts. [Tweet] There is no indication as yet as to whether public school administrators will look into this matter further with an eye toward possible discipline.

You’d never know it watching most national news outlets in America, but President Donald Trump is doing a remarkable job of rising to the occasion as the nation faces an unprecedented national emergency. That’s according to those who look on absent an agenda. Fixated on the November election, the Trump-hating media is busy playing a game of “gotcha” with the president, having weaponized the coronavirus pandemic on a scale comparable to the Russian collusion hoax. Yet, in the face of the crisis brought on by the Chinese virus COVID-19, which has shut down the economy on a scale never before seen, the president continues to rise above the toxic media negativity

A preliminary study released Friday found that blood serum from people who recovered from coronavirus was effective at treating critically ill patients, raising hope that the technique will curtail a pandemic that has already killed more than 30,000 people around the globe. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at only five patients, and the authors of the report acknowledged the need for more extensive research. But it showed promising results, and health officials have already expressed optimism that blood transfers can be used to fight the new coronavirus strain. “That’s one of our top priorities,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. government’s top expert on infectious disease,

Given how Democrats have conducted themselves with control over just one half of one branch of government, the thought that they could retain that control, let alone gain more in November, is horrifying. Imagine the people who insisted on inserting cronyism into a bill designed to save the economy from collapse having the power to implement the entirety of their agenda. There would be no pulling up from that nosedive. That is why it’s important not only to retain the Senate and the White House but to retake the House as well.

Leftism started creeping into American colleges and universities beginning in the 1930s. In the 1960s, it blossomed into the Free Speech and Anti-War movements. By the 1990s, it had morphed into censorious political correctness. And in the 2000s, America's institutions of higher education had turned into hard-left organizations with huge administrative staffs, most of whom seemingly were dedicated to ensuring that students graduated directly into the arms of the Democrat Party. This post isn't the place for "chapter and verse" evidence of the overall leftism in academia. The old Encyclopedia Britannica probably wouldn't be long enough.

Congress passed Title IX in 1972, at a time when people had the old-fashioned idea that there were two sexes, one with XX chromosomes and the other with XY chromosomes.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, who decided to step back from the limelight with Meghan Markle, 38, and 10-month-old Archie after being subjected to intense scrutiny which brought back painful memories of Princess Diana's death, is said to have been apologetic about giving up his post as Captain General of The Royal Marines.

Chutzpah is a Yiddish word meaning incredible audacity. The most famous example is the man who murders both his parents and then throws himself on the mercy of the court because he’s an orphan. Neither Prince Harry nor Meghan Markle is Jewish, and it’s doubtful if they even know the meaning of the word “chutzpah,” but they’ve sure got it – and Trump was not amused. One of the things that was immediately obvious about Meghan Markle was that she was “woke.” That is, in keeping with her “B” level actress status, she eagerly copied all the political shibboleths of the big Leftist stars

Though the interview was very short, the two journalists managed to fit in as much Trump-bashing as they could. Karl bemoaned to Stephanopoulos that the president was the same man now as he was in 2016, and his “mental illness” was being spun as a good leadership quality, by his own staff.
