The 14th Amendment Is Getting Removed

With the Trump impeachment trial over the Democrats have to find something else to remove.

This amendment allows Congress to banish from future federal office any current or former politician deemed by congress to have “engaged in insurrection.” Its adoption after the Civil War was designed to prevent officers or political leaders of the Confederate regime from being elected to Congress or the presidency.

In a normal world, it would be impossible for Congress to punish a man for engaging in “insurrection” after Congress had just acquitted the same man of engaging in the same insurrection. Or, as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer recently called it on the Senate floor, “inciting the erection.”

But this is Washington and the man in question is former President Donald Trump, whose Latin name is Swampus Horribilis.

Gripped by hatred and fear of their long, partisan nightmare, Democrats in Congress today seek “unity” by heaving Mr. Trump into the dustbin of the Confederacy. In this name of “unity,” what precisely does that mean for the 74 million current Americans who just voted for this modern-day Jefferson Davis?

To be sure, it is a rusty, gnarly hatchet. But when all you have is a hatchet, everything is plump flesh and brittle bone. And hack away they will!

In the name of “unity.”

No one has ever accused Democrats in Washington of being particularly steeped in history. But even for them, this assault on history — and common sense and decency, for that matter — strains absurdity.

By just about every measure, the Civil War was our deadliest event. In terms of raw numbers, the war dead on either side in the Civil War eclipsed every war in our history except for World War II. More than 2% of America’s overall population perished in combat or from disease, starvation, suicide and execution during that conflict, eclipsing even World War II.

It was a brutal, four-year, bloody slog that literally tore the country apart and left fractures that linger even a century and a half later. Ever since, only the sickest politicians seek to exploit those fractures for their own political gain.

Given the current stock of statesmanship in Washington these days, do you doubt for a minute that these people won’t exploit those long ago fractures for a short term political payday today?

You bet. Donald Trump was a slaver who invented slavery and lashed slaves in the public square until their skin curdled with swollen scars. Every day of his presidency was just another Antietam. The high mark of his presidency was the Battle of Gettysburg.

As always, the most devastating thing you can do with unserious people like Democrats in Washington is to take them seriously for a minute.

One small problem with their precious 14th Amendment is that it did not recognize either women or “Indians not taxed” who lived in America at the time. I mean, I get it these people are all about “canceling” people they don’t like, especially based on race or gender. But pretty sure that canceling women and “Indians not taxed” would be totally, like, uncool.

The other really great thing about the 14th Amendment is that it includes a way out for Congress.

While the amendment allows Congress to cancel anyone who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion,” it also gives Congress the power to un-cancel anyone as they see fit. Congress “may, by a vote of two-thirds of each house, remove such disability,” according to the amendment.

You see, some insurrections are worse than others.

Take Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee, the two most influential leaders of the aforementioned actual “Civil War.” In the 1970s, both men were granted amnesty by Congress under the 14th Amendment.

Then-Sen. Joseph R. Biden, Delaware Democrat, voted to absolve both men.

Because, after all, that wasn’t really an insurrection. I mean, not like this one.

  1. Then in 2022 we will empty the Democrat trash from Congress remove their stupidity…President Trump can seek re-election which he will easily win an then we can watch the Bulls Run.

  2. Schumer says that cause corruption gives him a bone-er to play with and entices Peelostit to come to his chambers. Satan has his way of bringing out the best in minions and I’m sure he is consistently on their minds.

  3. There was a movie made that had several sequences oh yeah “CHUCKY” the satanic doll wow! What a resemblance. Always trying to backstab America.

  4. The biggest problem with the democrats is their fear of President Trump. The movement will not stop, what President Trump started, it’s only bound to get stronger. The democrats are just showing the entire world that they are a laughing stock to everyone. They should learn to stop before more of their dirty laundry airs. Or maybe that’s how this all needs to play out. Time will tell. I do know that the Supreme Court is hearing legal arguments regarding the 2020 election on 2/19.

  5. Well, Trump was acquitted and them re-impeached. Sounds like “Double Jeopardy” which is prohibited by the Fifth! Of course the DemonRats are bent on trashing the entire Constitution and set up a dictatorship. Why should we be surprised? Will they shout, “Sieg Heil” (“Hail Victory”) if they achieve it?

  6. What is so sad, is that the people who voted for Biden, don’t have a clue what is happening in America or the world today. Plus they don’t understand what Biden is doing to America. In other words, most Democrats are stupid.

  7. Enough is enough..
    It’s past time Pelosi is removed from our government. She represents no normal citizen or the will of the people.
    She is nothing but a senile old woman that is playing games.
    We now have in my opinion two people in power that are not capable of making decisions to run their own lives much less our country.
    Joe Biden and pelosi both need to be removed from our government.

  8. We’ve had over six years of listening to the hateful rhetoric of the demoncrats. It’s time to act like them and give them a taste of their own medicine. mr. biden will never be accepted as the winner of the 2020 election by 75,000,000+ American Patriots. Even a lot of demoncrats are recognizing the fraud that put mr. biden in the white house. The election was stolen from PRESIDENT TRUMP. There will be a day when all of the crooks in the demoncrat party will pay for their crimes.

  9. the democrats want to erase the 14th amendment for it may be the only way to keep trump from running for president again. i pray it doesnt work so go to the computer or library and look up the 14th amendment there is always some evil way they try to get him out and not run again i pray dear lord jesus these people in the house who want to distroy trump realize they are distroying a great man take care of president trump lord and find a way lord to stop them for you are the only one lord jesus who can thank you lord for all you do

  10. The wording of the 14th should have prevented biden from being elected!
    Why did that chinese pawn was installed in the highest honor of the United States of America?
    That chinese pawn has DESECRATED the post of the presidency.
    That ukraine pawn has desecrated the White House!

  11. I am so appalled at the children we have in office, my God where will it end. They have literally persecuted our President since before he took office. We have do something. These people have not worked ONE day since they went after our President. Someone needs to do the same thing to this idiot in office, he and cohorts are guilty of TREASON.
