STANDBY TO TAKE OVER

Trump’s Mysterious Hospital Visit

Donald John Trump made an unannounced, unplanned Saturday morning visit to Walter Reed hospital last November. The trip did not follow the protocol of a routine presidential medical exam, which Trump claimed was the reason for the trip. Many sources have since confirmed that the staff at the hospital did not get any notice about a presidential visit to the medical center in Bethesda, Maryland. Why the secrecy?

My conjecture, judging by Trump’s age, is the appointment was related to an early morning blood test in the White House showing an elevated level of prostate-specific antigen. PSA is a protein made by both normal and cancerous cells in the prostate gland. A doctor will suggest a biopsy of the prostate cells when there is a high level of PSA. Some patients prefer anesthesia for this procedure because it’s uncomfortable and sometimes painful. This brings us to VP Mike Pence.

According to the New York Times, “Vice President Mike Pence was put on standby to temporarily assume the powers of the presidency during President Donald Trump’s unannounced visit to Walter Reed hospital in November 2019.” The source of this story is Michael Schmidt, a Times writer who is about to publish a book containing the information.

Some men are ashamed of a prostate biopsy and they worry about the possibility of cancer. Perhaps they shouldn’t fret because there are many successful procedures and operations, but we all know Trump is fearful of anything that makes him look vulnerable, weak or less manly than his self-conceived image.

You might ask why in the hell am I making this assumption about Trump. Well, I am just trying to help the discovery process. I wouldn’t have to throw out my opinion had the President and White House told the country what was going on. If Trump’s condition involved an early warning and successful steps to resolve whatever was lurking, his explanation could possibly save other lives. But, of course, he’s too vain to care about anyone other than himself.

We need a reporter to boldly ask Trump, “How’s your health?” He doesn’t release his medical charts or his tax returns. He doesn’t let us know much about the questions we have. Maybe he is the “empty suit” he accuses others of being. The lack of meaningful thoughts, critical information and digestible data from the Donald is dumbing and numbing.

This kind of speculation really drives Trump crazy. In that new book, Donald Trump vs. the United States, New York Times reporter Michael S. Schmidt claims that Pence was made ready and some are speculating that Trump may have had a mini-stroke. Wow, Trump hearing this report, just had to tweet: “It never ends! Now they are trying to say that your favorite President, me, went to Walter Reed Medical Center, having suffered a series of mini-strokes. Never happened to THIS candidate – FAKE NEWS. Perhaps they are referring to another candidate from another Party!”

I am sure when Trump made that short drive from the White House to Walter Reed he pondered the possibility that Mike Pence would be president for a few hours. Maybe he declined the procedure or manned-up and took the pain of a needle prick in his prostate. Perhaps he justified not getting a test with his patently false premise that if you don’t test for it you don’t have it. If he didn’t get tested he could still have cancer, and cancer, like COVID, doesn’t care if you are a Democrat or Republican. Cancer loves sugar.

Trump’s health information is pertinent to all Americans. The mental and physical well-being of the most powerful leader in the land is paramount, especially on the eve of an election. He can hide under the covers, but sooner or later the President’s health must be known.

This person who accuses others of being crazy and sick seems to be hiding something from us. If only we could get back to transparency with our president. That would also be the best way to restore faith in our institutions. We know this won’t happen with Trump so let’s press on without him!

It’s time to vote him out of office. If you are voting by mail, head for the postal box NOW!

BIRX, FAUCI & REDFIELD SHOULD RESIGN

Confront Trump and Save American Lives

There comes a time when things get so bad one must decide a course of action for their own survival. This can happen when a woman in an abusive marriage walks out the door to save her life and assure the future for her children. Sometimes a man stays in an equally terrible relationship and must escape before some bad disaster takes place, such as a murder. Here in America we now face a life or death situation and it’s time for someone to do the right thing.

The President of the United States is saying all the wrong things, pushing lies and distractions and waging a sinister plan that fuels the COVID-19 flames. He’s killing people! Who can step up and make a difference with him? Someone who attended the first Coronavirus Task Force meeting in months leaked a terrible account of the President’s temperament on the pandemic. According to CNN, “As some members of the task force tried to stress the dire nature of the situation to the President, Trump repeatedly attempted to change the subject. He started talking about something else.” There is no reason why anyone would make this up. Was it done to make the Donald change his tune? Assuming what was reported is true, then are we getting closer and closer to the 25th Amendment. Let’s review that potential cure for an ignorant and dangerous President.

From the Globe Gazette

The 25th deals with succession and other issues, but this paragraph should catch your attention: “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, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Mike Pence is liked by many conservatives and evangelicals, but he has a deal with the devil and is so loyal to Donald Trump that he will lie to the American public to make Trump look good. There’s an paradox in that. Pence was so outraged when former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn lied to him that he demanded Trump fire Flynn. In this administration, lying is judged more by the source of the lie rather than its content or lack of validity. So, don’t hold your breath that Pence could muster the balls or morality to suggest he be a replacement President. Remember, it would also take a legal majority of the cabinet to vote to remove Trump from office. The 25th Amendment also mentions Congress as a source for making the move to remove the President.

I’m fairly certain the House of Representatives could attain the votes to enact the 25th, but such a move would die in the Mitch McConnell Senate. So, we are left with a challenge and a problem. Trump’s continual misinformation and pressure on states to reopen schools will probably lead to more infection, more stress on the healthcare system and more death. He has no clue how to solve the problem but he certainly knows how to sugarcoat or dismiss it. He’s ignoring experts and, much worse, he’s poisoning the reasoning of million of Americans and they are doing things that are making this pandemic worse.

I remember the outrage and swift moves that took place during what was named the “Saturday Night Massacre” on the evening of October 20, 1973. On that night, President Richard Nixon ordered his Attorney General, Elliot Richardson, to fire Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox who was conducting the legal investigation of the President’s involvement in the Watergate scandal. Richardson refused and resigned immediately. Nixon then ordered Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus to fire Cox. Ruckelshaus also refused and resigned. Nixon then ordered the third-most-senior official at the Justice Department, Solicitor General Robert Bork, to fire Cox. Bork carried out the dismissal but stayed on to “protect” the Justice Department. The Supreme Court made Nixon turn over tapes of White House conversations that proved he was involved in the break in of the Democrat’s office at the Watergate hotel complex and that he initiated a coverup and used the IRS to go after people he considered enemies. Real douchebag, eh?

The resignations and firing triggered an explosion that led to Nixon’s resignation. The President looked extremely guilty to the American public, and Congress turned against the 37th President and convinced him to leave office because they were about to impeach him. Of course, Trump will never resign even if Lindsey Graham came to the Oval Office with a picture of the Donald alongside naked Russian hookers, but we are getting ahead of ourselves.

What might make a difference? Imagine Dr. Debra Birx, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Robert R. Redfield calling a press conference and announcing that they were resigning because they can no longer work with, or trust Trump. Then the fireworks would begin.

One of three things would happen, 1. Trump would say he really didn’t know them that well and he was just thinking about getting rid of them anyway, because they gave him such bad advice, 2. Trump would bring in Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil (a man without a medical degree) to say that everything is fine, or 3. Trump would issue an executive order forcing all schools and states to immediately open. Lots of people would die and Donald John Trump would then cancel the election. Okay, maybe the doctors should stay on duty.

You might be thinking, gee, so negative and panicky, but if you just listen to the B.S. of our President you can imagine what I just said playing out. When you hear Trump say that children are immune to the virus and that is why all schools should OPEN NOW, understand that he’s fucking crazy. In a letter sent to parents and obtained by CNN, the head of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School, Robert Kosasky, announced the K-12 school season will begin in early September with a virtual-learning-only plan. Ironically, Trump’s son Barron attends St. Andrew’s. I guess the sons and daughters of rich people need to be protected more than the millions of middle and lower-class kids in America. Trump is a demonic demigod who is ready and willing to sacrifice your kids to help his campaign. One could argue that Trump caused the death of Herman Cain, but there is no evidence to prove that. Still, he did reject the notion of mask wearing and Cain obeyed.

The sooner we all stop listening to Trump, the better off this country will be. I could say that he’s delusional, but that could be cured by a good doctor. If all the doctors walked away right now, our country would be in deep shit. And isn’t that why Vladimir Putin wanted Donald Trump to be president. He picked a real loser, and so did America.
