Original Article

On Thursday, Rep. Adam Kinzinger became the first Republican lawmaker to publicly call for invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Donald Trump as president. Kinzinger posted his remarks in a video that he published on Twitter.(Twitter/Video) Kinzinger’s call came a day after a pro-Trump mob invaded the U.S. Capitol building where Congress was in session debating challenges to the electoral votes.It’s not surprising that Kinzinger, a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and an officer in the reserves, would be the first Republican to call for Trump’s ouster via the 25th Amendment. The congressman has been a frequent critic of the president,

McCain protegee Kinzinger has done nothing other than rag on Trump. He was part of that bizarre trip McCain took to Syria wth McMuffin. That ended up with major egg on their faces because they were photographed laughing and scratching with “Syrian rebel leaders” who were subsequently identified as being ISIS leaders. He’s sort of like Jean Fraud - always looking for publicity and reminding of his service, National Guard, etc. A boring little twit. Kind of like a pebble in your shoe.

Big tech has launched an unprecedented and coordinated cyber attack on President Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters. As this was happening — the GOP was dead silent. On Friday, Twitter permanently banned hundreds, if not thousands, of Trump supporters and prominent allies — before banning the president himself. Nearly every account that helped to promote the Stop the Steal rallies or challenge the election results were banned, including Ali Alexander, Michael Coudrey, Gen. Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell, and Lin Wood. Countless smaller accounts that supported the president were also getting suspended in a seemingly constant rate. The same has been happening over on Facebook and Instagram.
