This is the GOP’s message to the world more or less.
Based on the events of this past weekend, there are serious questions as to weather or not Trump will even last the rest of the year: Republicans have already started to rebel barely two weeks into Trump’s presidency. Of course, we knew the GOP was just planning to use Trump to deregulate everything, increase military spending and give tax cuts to those who don’t need ’em. That was the plan from the beginning but things have clearly escalated much faster than expected.
We’ll know for sure over the next two months for sure. That brings me to the subject of the title: Mike Pence.
We will need to watch very closely to see how they package Trump’s exit and how they present Pence being sworn in as President. I see one of two things happening:
- Pence starts publicly speaking out against Trump in the next few weeks or months (“My loyalty is to the will of the American people first”, etc.), leading to him asking Congress to impeach Trump (Very Likely).
- The GOP moves to impeach Trump on their own and declares Pence will be acting President (Most Likely).
I doubt it will be anything other than one of those two things. It will all be about how the GOP packages Trump’s exit we need to pay very close attention to. He will likely be presented as a “Benevolent Ruler” or a “Savior” coming to fix everything Trump did. In fact, that should be the assumption unless there is a full reset on the cabinet.
One thing you should know about the GOP if you don’t already: They ALWAYS do what they say they will. Of course, it’s early to be thinking about that but it’s something to keep in mind. It’s not a matter of if but “WHEN” and When is probably happening alot sooner than anyone could have imagined:
In case you don’t know who she is, this is Sally Yates. Until Monday afternoon, she was the Federal Attorney General. She was fired by President Trump within an hour of declaring she would not defend Trump’s controversial anti-Muslim executive order last Friday Jess Sessions was appointed acting AG and has ordered Federal Judges nationwide to upjold Trump’s executive order. Of course, they can’t since the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) took the government to court over it and won. LOL. Round 2 should be in a matter of days if not hours. Thanks to the $24.1 million in donations they received over the weekend–20 times what they normally get a year–they’re good to go.
…Mind you, This is on top of Trump removing the the Joint Chiefs of Staff from the National Security Council and replacing them with Steve Bannon on Friday. Yes, THAT Steve Bannon.
The thing about all these moves that folks need to keep in mind is there ARE checks and Balances. Some of those in the middle and most on the Left are wondering why the Dems aren’t doing anything other than angrily shaking their fists at the White House. Some of those in the middle and many on the Right are cheering on Trump’s actions so far, feeling “This is how things are suppose to be”.
…Weather you’re in the middle, on the left, on the right or wherever, this is something you should know: There are checks and balances and what Trump is doing IS a blatant abuse of power. It’s just a question of when the GOP will move to impeach Trump and I can assure those of you who are pro-Trump, they WILL. They’ll do it when it’s most convenient for them to do so. Timing’s not quite there yet.
When you know what’s going to happen next, you have no reason to be too concerned. By all means, be careful but what will happen in the near future is too easy to not know at this point. Please donate to the ACLU. They are non-partisan and are for everyone.
