Republican Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) dangled the idea of having President Joe Biden removed from office via the 25th Amendment. He said that Biden already did more than enough damage. His latest debacle is allowing Afghanistan to fall back into Taliban control during the pullout of US troops from the country.

What In the World is Joe Biden Doing?

In a tweet last week, Scott outlined the problems caused by the President.“Inflation is raging. The debt ceiling expired & U.S. debt is headed to $45 TRILLION. Kabul is falling to the Taliban & encounters in the #BidenBorderCrisis just hit a 20 YEAR HIGH. Democrats control the House, Senate & @WhiteHouse. What in the world is Joe Biden doing?”  

Last Monday, he retweeted the post and added some new lines. “After the disastrous events in Afghanistan, we must confront a serious question: Is Joe Biden capable of discharging the duties of his office, or has the time come to exercise the provisions of the 25th Amendment?”

What is the 25th Amendment?

The 25th Amendment allows for government officials to strip the sitting president of his duties. The Vice President and the majority of cabinet officials can tell Congress they have no faith in the president’s abilities to lead. Then, they will report if he “is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” 

In particular, the 25th amendment often applies to cases of medical emergencies. In addition, the amendment also clarifies the ascension of the vice president to the leader if the president dies, resigns, or gets removed from office. It also establishes how to fill the vacancy for the vice president. 

Fall Of Afghanistan

The fall of the Afghan government was Scott’s trigger to call for a 25th Amendment intervention.  The US-backed government crumbled over the weekend as Taliban troops began capturing major cities.

Eventually, the capital Kabul and the presidential palace fell. Meanwhile, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country to safety, leaving citizens scrambling to leave as well.

This coincided with the evacuation of US troops and civilian workers trapped in the country. The Taliban sweep and the panicked evacuation all contributed to chaos at the Kabul airport. 

Meanwhile, Biden went on TV Monday to defend himself. He said he’s taking responsibility for the disastrous pullout. However, he also blamed former President Donald Trump for forcing his decision. He also blamed the Afghan military and government for not resisting the Taliban’s advances. 

‘I Inherited A Deal’

“When I came into office, I inherited a deal that President Trump negotiated with the Taliban. Under his agreement, U.S. forces would be out of Afghanistan by May 1, 2021 – just a little over three months after I took office. The choice I had to make as your president was to either follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the Taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season,” he explained. 

“There was no status quo of stability without American casualties after May 1. There was only the cold reality of either following through on the agreement to withdraw our forces or escalating the conflict and sending thousands more American troops back into combat in Afghanistan, lurching into the third decade of conflict,” he added. 

US Involvement in Afghanistan Ends Now

“Afghanistan political leaders gave up and fled the country. The Afghan military collapsed, some without trying to fight. If anything, the developments of the past week reinforce that ending US military involvement in Afghanistan now was the right decision.

American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war, and dying in a war, that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves,” Biden concluded.

    Blaming Trump? Biden is an imbecile. This moron has absolutely no idea what he is doing. Trump inherited a lot of stuff to but he acted like a president and said no, Biden is a joke.

  • BBA says:

    How can you remove a President from office who is not there legally to start with?? I know most Americans are wrapped up in their selfish little lives but we are in serious trouble people and it appears that no one will take notice until it is too late and we are standing at the bottom of our totally destroyed country!! We cannot count on our worthless-spineless sellout Republican politicians to do anything either!!

  • Diane says:

    You are absolutely correct. People better wake up and step up we are in horrible trouble. This is the greatest country in the world but not for much longer if we don’t take it back.

  • Dawn Beck says:

    The last 71/2 months have been HORRIBLE by design!! The people who are really in charge are banking on us ( the people left with any sensibility) to holler “25”, therefore the complete and utter demise of this once strong and respected republic can be sealed. If it isn’t 100% apparent to EVERYONE that we have been taken over by foreign AND domestic enemies by now, than I don’t know what kind of laa-Laaa land people are living in. Get your heads out of the sand, let’s figure out what we need to do. It’s not gonna happen without divine intervention people, so the one thing we can ALL do is repent and turn to God. This is THE 2 Chron. 7:14 moment.🙏🙏

  • Anne baxter says:

    Get rid of the whole bunch.

  • King Assphalt says:

    It may take more time than we would like and there is obviously no doubt whatsoever given Biden’s latest screw up but hold fast things are happening. I know a measured thoughtful response is coming from our true president. The lion will not yield to the barking of little dogs.

  • Matt Jennings says:

    Yes remove Biden ,but then you have to most radical Democrat voting liberal running OUR country!We cannot forget and take are eyes off the head of the snake IRAN an this administration doing everything they can to work with the # 1 terror sponsor in the WORLD.TEN weeks away from securing Nukes!

  • Marcia Sprow says:

    Pray without ceasing. God is in control

  • Branden Oconnell says:

    Keep Biden probably the best President we’ve had since Clinton he will balance our budget and give you rednecks free money to you welfare queens

  • Chris says:

    I agree that we need to get rid of Biden but we also need to get rid of the 2 followers if we do. Harris and Pelosi are both stupid women and would not do better.

  • Susie says:

    Harris is not even worthy of the presidential seat. Biden must go, but we certainly don’t need Harris in office. She showed her true colors when the Border problems evolved! She wouldn’t even go down to the border. She is useless!!! So I think the whole swamp needs to be drained, and start all over again, but this time with legal votes – not cheaters!

  • Huapakechi says:

    The only reason I do not want dementia joe removed is the lineup of replacements that would have to be eliminated once he is gone.

  • MAGABITCHES says:

    stfu asshole

  • MAGABITCHES says:

    stfu BRANDEN

  • Dale says:

    I have to agree with HUAPAKECHI. If BIDEN is removed…look at the alternative. Harris is NOT, and never will be Presidential Material. She was added to the ticket strictly for racial and genre purposes. And Pelosi … ? That would be suicide for sure!

    Unless our government turns around or is turned around, the prognosis of our country following that of the Roman Empire becomes obvious to anyone that has studied history. The writing is on the wall, so to speak.

  • Scott says:

    Perfect example of leading from the REAR. These morons are not leaders. THEY ARE APPEASERS that have no business in any position that involves thinking….

  • CWII-BRINGIT says:

    Since Republicans don’t control the house, senate, nor cabinet, Rick Scott’s suggestion is going nowhere! Kamala Harris is NOT eligible to be president of the United States because she is an ANCHOR BABY and NOT a Natural Born Citizen since neither of her parents was a US Citizen when she was born! While Nancy Pelosi is next in line to be President, she is NOT qualified and is a Traitor and DOMESTIC ENEMY of the U.S Constitution. Unfortunately the only solution to this problem is revolutionary action required to remove all Democrat Leaders from the United States.

    DEMOCRATS… can’t live with them… can’t shoot them…

  • Patricia says:

    Its the right thing to do considering the world knows Biden has weakened America and we are now vulnerable in their eyes to possible terrorist attacks on our own soil with all the open borders and millions of undocumented people crossing over into our Country without us knowing who they truly are!!! Biden will be the ruin of our freedom as we knew it to be!! Time for him, Harris and Pelosi to go…

  • David says:

    We all know they were cheated in, but the replacements are even worse. Although, Xiden is absent of a brain so maybe this is them calling the shots anyway. Hopefully the people completely void of common sense/critical thinking skills (Branden) will suffer first and the greatest. Unless your head is stuck in a hole, EVERYTHING has gotten worse since January. EVERYTHING.

  • RUBY says:

    BIDEN IS OBVOULY INCOMPETENT, BUT SO IS KAMALA. AFTER HER I BELIEVE IS NANCY PELOSI. NOT MUCH TO LOOK FORWARD TO; BUT TO CONTINUE WITH BIDEN SEEMS LIKE FOLLY. IS THERE ANY WAY A COMMISION COULD BE ASSIGNED TO COME UP WITH A WORKABLE SOLUTION. IT APPEARS THERE ARE DEMOCRATS THAT REALIZE WHAT IS HAPPENING.

  • Roger Brandt says:

    This is the biggest pair of IDIOTS to ever run this country, Biden and Kamala both need removed along with Pelosi and Schumer, they are totally UN American and through their puppet master they are destroying this country and crushing its future with the Asshole CRT indoctrination of our students…We need to remove the Head of the Snake by gutting the Elitist Leftist College professors whom were the Draft dodgers of the past….Cancel these professors and retrain the morons they taught……..

  • John Davidson says:

    As many others here have said, look at the results of getting rid of Biden.
    Next in line is just as stupid with zero experience in foreign politics, twice as far left and zero common sense. All she knows how to do when a problem arises is to cackle.
    Next after that is the Wicked Witch of the West who is arguably the most evil person in U.S. politics.
    Short of a second revolution, we are screwed.
    And, unless the states fix their election processes/rules/laws/regulations and enforcement, and the courts decide to actually adjudicate election fraud… the Republicans can never win a consequential election in the future. As long as they can bring in truckloads of ballots on election night to assure that the Democrat candidate wins, and as long as the election machine operators and vote counters can add votes for the Democrat candidates as needed to assure a win, there is no way possible for a Republican to win the consequential elections.

  • Princess says:

    Maybe God will strike all 4 with the same lightning bolt at the same time Biden, Harris ,Schumer and Pelosi all things are possible

  • cathy conroy says:

    This is so stupid He is our president Get over it

  • francis libstaff says:

    we should get rid of BIDEN AND KAMALA!!! REINSTATE TRUMP HE WAS THE REAL WINNER OF THIS PAST ELECTION!! TRUMP 2020

  • Diane says:

    Biden is a Damn Joke & his vice-president is no better!
    You can bet China,Russia & every other enemy we have are just waiting for a chance to truly hurt America,and are all laughing their asses off at us, now that we have a Commander in Chief that they all know is an idiot that can’t even string 2 sentences together. It’s a sad time for this Amazing country of ours. I’d like to know how he won the election when I can’t find one single person who will admit they voted for him????
