In response to the NYT op-ed VP Mike Pence had to go on Sunday show and deny that they might use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power.

Wait, did that really happen?

Courtesy of The Hill:

Vice President Pence denied that any discussions have taken place in the White House about the possibility of removing President Trump by invoking the 25th Amendment in a new interview with CBS News set to air Sunday.

Asked whether any such discussions had taken place between members of Trump’s Cabinet, Pence was adamant that none had occurred.

“No, never. And why would we be, Margaret?” Pence asked CBS’s Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation.”

Pence blasted the op-ed and the Times in the CBS interview, calling the anonymous author a “disgrace.”

“I think the author of the anonymous editorial, and frankly The New York Times, should be ashamed,” Pence told Brennan.

“[I]t seems to me to be just an obvious attempt to distract attention from this booming economy and President Trump’s record of success,” he added.

You know it just kills me that this administration is still riding on the coattails of the Obama Administration’s economic success, and then trying to take the credit for themselves. 

As for Mike Pence it is never a good sign for your president that you have to go on a Sunday talk show and deny that you are working behind his back to remove him from office. 

And keep in mind that this whole 25th Amendment thing was first brought up by Steve Bannon in Michael’s Wolff’s book, and how now been confirmed a number of times by others. 

So Mike Pence can deny these stories until some color finally comes into his face, but that does not mean that these conversations are not happening.

      “Bannon told Reuters he was working on setting up an independent, non-partisan tribunal to investigate decades of scandals within the U.S. Church, warning that dioceses across the country faced financial ruin because of the wrongdoing. In a statement that stunned the church, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano said last month that Pope Francis should stand down for allegedly covering up for a former U.S. cardinal who was accused of sexually molesting children and adult seminarians.

      Some media saw the hands of fierce conservative critics of Francis behind the unprecedented attack on a living pope, including U.S. Cardinal Raymond Burke, who is close to Bannon. Bannon predicted the Church would have to pay millions of dollars in damages, compensation and legal fees. “You are going to see a tremendous financial liquidation of the Church over the next 10, 15 or 20 years predicated on this scandal,”

      “t was outside the scope of its investigation, but it’s a problem some experts say may be more pervasive than the abuse of children.” “The leading study found that 3.1 percent of women who attended services at least weekly had experienced a sexual advance as an adult from their clergy member or religious leader. That comes to one of every 33 churchgoing women.” “Whether the victim is a child or an adult—and the perpetrator straight or gay, a supposedly celibate Catholic priest or a married minister in another denomination—the abuse of power is central, experts say.” ““Sexual misconduct is primarily a crime of power. It’s a crime of power that’s expressed sexually,” said Mary Gail Frawley-O’Dea, a clinical psychologist and author of Perversion of Power: Sexual Abuse in the Catholic Church.”

      Like saying `no’ to God>Just say NO to god.

        At the outset, I thought Pope Francis was different but turns out that they’re all the same.
        I don’t care who your ‘god’ is, there’s no excuse for any of it.
        And who in the double hockeys listens to that paragon of virtue Bannon?

        Bannon’s trying to jump on to a different band wagon. What a creep.

    It’s sad how Trump’s administration if rife with conflict and self interest. When Obama went back into the public eye it was a comfort to know that there are still a few intelligent beings out there willing to speak their mind about how Trump is trying to make our country a dictator’s haven. I hope people are able to realize that we are on the brink of no return and go to the polls and change this trajectory.

      No kidding. Vote them ALL out. In my experience, no need to e-mail grievances senators/congressmen when you get a form letter in response.
      They do NOT listen. Donate $$? They make enough, let them fund their own bullshit. SarahPAC anyone?

      As for President Obama, yeah, the turd fell asleep all right. He watched every darned bit.

    Many people, mostly on the right but including some on the left, are saying that it is somehow un-American to write this op-ed anonymously, and that this author is a coward and possibly a traitor. These people need to read their history books. Thomas Paine initially published “Common Sense” anonymously. Madison, Hamilton and Jay wrote “The Federalist Papers” under the pseudonym “Publius.” Even Benjamin Franklin sometimes wrote using the pen name Mrs. Serious Dogood since he felt his real name would detract from his message. Were Paine, Madison, Hamilton, Jay, and Franklin traitors or cowards?

      They were all probably facing death.

      The NYT has published other anonymous op-eds, protecting the authors’ identities because if exposed they risked death.

      What did this anonymous Trump whistle-blower risk if exposed? Losing his job? So what? Big deal? He should lose his job since he is basically undermining our government and our constitution. The NYT agreed to this because it was a juicy story that would sell papers. They lowered their standards for a buck.

      If this coward and traitor wanted to expose the coup that has overtaken our country, he should have put his name on it. But no. He and his buddies want to continue putting children in prison, poisoning our planet, selling off our public lands and putting Kavanaugh on the bench of the Supreme Court for life. He wants a pat on the back and a big juicy thank you for “saving” us from Trump when he and his cronies have taken control of our government and are pushing their own despicable agenda.

      Well, fuck him. I hope he is exposed and all of the rest. Then I hope Trump is either impeached or taken out by the 25th since he is mentally incompetent to hold the office.

    Something strange about dense pence. Religious drump azz kissers like him believe it is ok to LIE. It is very odd how drump republicons have been so corrupted and ugly that they will do and say anything to harm Americans. Americans must DEMAND the overturn of citizen united. They must DEMAND that brett kavanaughty must not be appointed. Americans must DEMAND that drump be removed immediately and charged with treason and espionage.

    Mike is sucya Christian that he’d never break a commandment and lie, right?

    So all I can think of is that these meetings did take place and he was left out of the loop. Which doesn’t bode well for a Pence administration.

      Taken from the playbook that $arah adheres to as they all do. As long as ‘politician’ is your occupation, ethics and morals, especially commandments. don’t apply.
      Instantly forgiven by God.

    And teh way Americans DEMAND is to go to the polls and vote and be sure everyone else does, too. And protest.

    Then there’s the Indianan that posted here after Pence was picked as veep, paraphrasing, “he’s all yours, we’re glad to be rid of him.”

    Because their base has absolutely no clue how economics work. That would take an education beyond HS or GED.
    Reminds me of the blond defendant on Judge Judy: “Rocket science .is when the scientists find out about space.”

    Mike Pence: “Over the last eight years, despite what we heard from President Obama on Friday, this country was struggling. President Obama’s answer was to raise taxes, to double the national debt, to increase regulation, to pass Obamacare into law, to stifle American energy.” H/T Jim Wright

    So EASILY picked apart. The albino is a freaking tool, as are those who believe him.

    My dog is practically sitting on the keyboard as it’s time for Walkies, so I can’t take the time to read all the posts, but I say if we can’t outlaw religion, can’t we at least tax the institutions into oblivion?

      Let’s start with “corporations are people, too.”
      Citizens United SUCH crap, and SCOTUS is soon to have another that believes it.

    Pence made another interesting comment on Face the Nation, when asked about trump’s comment that the DOJ should not investigate republicans because they will lose seats, he replied that is just the president being candid.

    So why didn’t she follow up, with: so it is ok to NOT investigate republicans because they are running for office? because his answer sure sounds like it.

    I also enjoyed the part that he wanted to “follow up” and change his answer (it was a taped interview), too bad for him they aired both.

    Personally I think Pence is a very sneaky person and we are going to be in really deep trouble if he becomes president, maybe even worse than trump.

    I found it to be a bit of a Twilight moment when he stated twice that no one in “the vice-president’s administration” would have written that article. Why is it both he and trump refer to themselves in the third person? So bizarre.

    Off topic, but not sure how else to give you the scoop

    https://heavy.com/news/2018/09/1786185-racist-dollar-general-pittsburgh/

    The video, which was filmed at a Dollar General on September 6, shows a young woman with long, wavy blond hair and glasses. She approaches the check-out counter and immediately gets into a fight with the cashier, a young African American man. The video starts with the woman grinning broadly and the cashier saying, “I got you already. You’re about to go viral.” The woman, still grinning, says “I don’t care. You can put me on the internet. I don’t google myself.”
    Then she adds, “suck my d***.”
    “I didn’t say a word,” says the cashier.

    The woman also calls him an ugly N_____ and later says black men have nice penises

      The woman starts to talk about how much she likes black men’s genitals. “But not you,” she says, looking at the cashier. “You’re short and ugly.”

      Give that man a raise.
