Brennan Calls on White House Staff to Revolt Against the President

Yesterday, former Obama CIA Director John Brennan responded to a tweet by the President on Saturday decrying that the ‘Russia witch hunt’ investigation with an ominous tweet calling for Trump’s cabinet and inner circle to turn against him. While Brennan stopped short of explicitly calling for the invocation of the 25th Amendment, impeachment or an outright internal coup-de-taut to depose and or remove President Trump from office, his language strongly implies such actions.
President Trump tweeted Saturday morning at 7:33 A.M. EDT, “@FoxNews Poll numbers plummet on the Democrat inspired and paid for Russian Witch Hunt. With all of the bias, lying and hate by the investigators, people want the investigators investigated. Much more will come out. A total scam and excuse for the Dems losing the Election!”


Responding to the President’s tweet, Brennan tweeted precisely one-hour later, speaking to Trump in a manner of an agent trying to break someone, then switching to addressing indirectly those who might be in a position who could remove President Trump from office. Notably, of course, Brennan did not mention Vice President Pence.
Brennan noted, “Your fear of exposure is palpable. Your desperation even more so. When will those of conscience among your Cabinet, your inner circle, and the Republican leadership (perhaps meaning both Party and Congress) realize that your unprincipled and unethical behavior as well as your incompetence are seriously damaging our Nation.”


For the purpose of clarity, it should be noted that Section 4 of the 25th Amendment addresses the means and process for removal of the President and states:
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.
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days 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. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.”
Unfortunately, for Brennan, if this is what he truly is implying, according to numerous political and judicial scholars writings addressing the 25th Amendment as it applies to President Trump which I have researched, all have argued that the 25th Amendment would not apply to Donald Trump, no matter how much his opponents desire it to, unless he became physically and mental incapacitated, where it was professionally, legally, and Constitutionally determined he was no longer fit to serve as POTUS.
Remember, historically, that the 25th Amendment was forged in the shadow of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, amid the heightened Cold War tensions — the 25th Amendment was designed to address serious lapses in the Constitution’s provisions for presidential succession. Specifically, it was designed to protect the government from random occurrences like sudden illness, or a failed assassination attempt, and perhaps even a coup. Fortunately, much more would need to be determined in the latter case to include; motive, purpose, intent, reason, rational, and political, ideological affiliation of the coup organizers and implementers.
The drafters and framers of the 25 Amendment might have agreed that it could be invoked to remove a president who suffered mental illness that led him to lapse into a state of delusion or unreason. But not a president who already demonstrated those traits when the people, in their wisdom, elected him to office. It didn’t occur to Congress that Americans might need an amendment to protect themselves from their own poor judgment.
As I have noted before, it’s comforting to think that the 25th Amendment provides us reprieve from our own folly. But it doesn’t, or at least, it probably shouldn’t. Americans who “just couldn’t vote for Clinton,” who saw no difference between the two major parties, or who couldn’t be bothered to vote at all are stuck with him…despite their lunacy chants and claims of ‘not my President.’ For the rest of us, most are quite content.
That said, of course, there’s another mechanism to remove a president. It’s equally messy, but much more clear-cut. If Americans are really that determined to unseat the president, that’s the one they should be focused on. Certainly, there may be some that are and we know they are and who they are.
Unfortunately, for the Democrats, the political-left, the mainstream media and the NeverTrumpers, with the economy roaring, the ISIS caliphate smashed, changing policy in the Middle East, a roadmap for denuclearization of North Korea and final end to that war, the judiciary being reshaped with numerous Conservative judges, the Federal government being reorganized, down-sized, and deregulated, while the floundering ‘make it up as you go’ Mueller investigation yet to find evidence of Russian collusion, and the President’s rising approval ratings, President Trump’s cabinet and GOP leadership are showing no signs of turning.

Setting up the “Disinformation Board” and rolling it out under the DHS moved the “Overton Window” of conceivable action closer to the Marxist ideal of information control.

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…
