Has anyone else noticed that the White House website is now giving more emphasis to VP Pence?
the White House has leaks that would make a colander proud, but I wonder whether or not the increased emphasis on VP Pence's daily activities showing prominently on the White House webpage may be Republican insurance against everything "going south" with the Trump presidency. Could be, don't you think? Mueller's look-see, if it finds indictable evidence (and surely someone in the White House already knows what, if anything, he will find) would call for boosting the leadership credentials of Vice President Pence. What better way to do that than showing his daily role in the White House?
The republican party is failing, not Trump. If the people wanted Pence as president, he would have been on the ballot for the presidency. If there was anything to find, it would have come out even before the inauguration, and remember this whole Russia Trump thing was started with a bogus opposition paper (Dossier) that was never verified by the plethora of US intel agencies.
The leaks in the executive branch are mostly from Obama left overs. Investigating these leaks which are bonafide Felony Crimes should be paramount over the fabricated Russia Trump Dossier.
President Trump is the only one trying to get something done for the Country and the American People. None of the democrats, and some of the republicans are trying to RESIST and do the jobs of domestic terrorists. Terrorists don't need to attack the US, while the democrats and rinos are doing such a great job.
These people in congress have taken the form of a deadly virus. They did nothing for the last 8 years. Remember in 2007-8 congress took their eye of their jobs, and campaigned and did fund raisers for the 2008 presidential election.
The economy tanked, and we are starting to recover, but the left is taking the focus of congress off of doing their job, and another 2008 is the only result. It could be 2008 plus 911.
With all due respect, I think the question just feeds the democrat party vengeance plot because Hillary lost. The voters aren't going to vote for Pence in 2020, The democrats are already tearing down the 2018 elections.
Biden is rumored to run in 2020, and who knows who else. It looks bleak for the country. Congress has failed, and so has the democratic republic jokingly still being called, The UNITED States.
This is my answer to your ?/ If I have answered the wrong ?, please delete my comment.
The listing of so many of VP Pence's WH activities seems to me to be something new. My guess is that there is a reason for his new prominence, but your guess is as good as mine at this point. Surely Trump has a role in what gets posted. Am I alone?
It could also be done to show that Trump does have competent and politically savvy people under his command. There has long been the assertion that Trump appointees are not competent. This could simply be bullet proofing those assertions.
There seem to be some pretty 'substantive' rumors going around that they are getting ready to remove Trump, in which case Pence would step in as President.
But what no one seems to be stating is how. Will there be a chemically induced heart attack that he suffers from? Will they inject him with enough aluminum to make Alzheimers kick in overnight?
People like to throw around Impeachment (like that idiot Waters, between her and Pelosi they have set new records for idiocy in D.C.) But Impeaching takes a long time, and then that doesn't even remove him, then he needs to be found guilty of a crime. By the time they got done with all that, his term would be up. So that can't be what is planned.
The 25th amendment to the Constitution allows a way:
Section 4 allows the involuntary removal upon written declaration by the VP and a majority of either the “principal officers of the executive department” (presumably Cabinet Officers) or any other body that Congress by law provides, that the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.
The VP assumes the powers of acting President. In this case, if the VP and majority of officers choose to usurp authority in such fashion, Congress must meet and determine by 2/3 vote of both House and Senate whether or not he is able to serve.
Congress might actually support such a move, and Pence might actually be able to pull it off, without outraging millions of Americans, and sending the Market and the economy into a tailspin... but I wouldn't bet on it.
