Democrat US Representatives Jimmy Panetta and Ted Lieu are leading a group of 31 House Democrats who have requested Joe Biden to renounce his sole authority as President to launch nuclear weapons. The pair suggested alternatives that included oversight by the vice president and speaker of the House, certifications from the Secretary of Defense that the strike order was valid, as well as certification from the Attorney General that it was legal, consultation with a permanent council of congressional leaders, and a formal declaration of war by Congress, which is the Constitutional option. Biden’s cognitive abilities have been questioned, and Democrats fear allowing him sole discretion over launching nuclear weapons. -GEG

Uh, how about a medical evaluation on Bidens mental state. And why hasn’t a medical evaluation already been done to disqualify Biden from even being allowed to be President?

What is most disturbing about this is that he has the ability and “authority” to commit $4 billion of OUR MONEY to COVAX, providing vaccine injury compensation to non-Americans, GIVE $1.9 billion of OUR MONEY to pet projects and cities whose mayors and governors let burn last summer AND have nothing to do with the plandemic, AND think that he can give away $12 TRILLION of OUR MONEY to reparations to people who did not directly suffer from slavery, paid for by AMERICANS who had nothing to do with slavery (nor did ANY of my anscestors).

How about just upholding and obeying the Constitution when it comes to military intervention and the declaration of war? 🤔

Yup, the democrats want one of their psychos (maybe the VP, maybe one of their other over-the-top psychos) to nuke conservative states … since they are obviously “the greatest of all threats to the nation”. What did you expect?
