Using the 25th Amendment to Engender President Kamala Harris

Guest Commentary · Aug. 14, 2020

Should Joe Biden and Kamala Harris win election in November, the radical elements dominating and controlling today’s Democrat Party have a very sinister plan (which they will not hesitate using) to use the 25th Amendment to make Kamala Harris president of the United States. This article predicts that the speed in which this happens will be mind-boggling to millions of Americans. How this could and most likely will occur is described herein.

As Attorney General William Barr recently stated, the radical left “has a lust for power. That’s what turns them on. They are not concerned about the lives of ordinary Americans.” Nothing, absolutely nothing, should be ruled out regarding the lengths to which radical leftists will go to effectively shred the U.S. Constitution to gain governing power and control over the daily lives of Americans.

Most certainly, freedom-loving Americans do not want a radical far-left politician like Kamala Harris becoming president, much less commander-in-chief, of America’s military forces. According to GovTrack.us, Harris was voted the most liberal U.S. senator in 2019, outranking Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren! Thus, if Kamala Harris ever becomes president, for sure there will be a litany of radical Marxist policies and actions emanating from the White House.

Given all the above, exactly how could Vice President Harris become President Harris after (soon thereafter?) Inauguration Day in January 2021? The answer is relatively simple and requires use of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The basic purpose of the 25th Amendment is to clarify the procedure and authority for the vice president to assume the office of president in the event the president either dies, resigns, or otherwise is removed from office. Thus, if President Biden takes action himself to resign or declare himself unable to carry out the duties of his office, Kamala Harris becomes “acting president,” most likely for the remainder of Biden’s four-year term of office.

However, if President Biden either refuses to resign or declare that he cannot carry out the duties of his office, then the language contained in Section Four of the 25th Amendment allows as follows:

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thus, if President Biden does not voluntarily resign or declare himself unfit for the presidency, he can be involuntarily forced to leave office simply by agreement among a small number of likeminded, radical leftist bureaucrats (Cabinet members, etc.) and the vice president.

The above, very realistic possibility (nay, probability) should shock freedom-loving Americans to the core and be a very strong motivator to ensure that President Donald J. Trump and other conservative candidates win election in November.

If Mr. Trump is not reelected, the American people will be subjected to the dictates and whims of far-left politicians on a scale the likes of which the nation has never experienced. This must not be allowed to happen.
