"Donald Trump just signed a new Executive Order removing the Director of National Intelligence & Joint Chiefs of Staff from the National Security Council.
This is UNHEARD OF. He is deliberately removing voices of reason from the decision making process."
If the above from a comrade's page is true this is most serious.
The intelligence balance of powers has just be eliminated. I can't imagine certain agencies, and powerful political forces willing to eat this. They may push back,...in a serious way.
If this were a movie these events could lead to a Military Coup.
Let's call this flick..."2017 The year of Hell"
Members of the Joints Chiefs the Heads of all the National Security Services, known, and unknown, certain industrialists trusted historians, and journalists gather. These key individuals go over the details of the legal removal from office of the President, and his cabinet.
This via the 25th Amendment of the Constitution.
In Trumps case for mental incapacity, and an extreme cocaine addiction. The film goes on to show the apprehension of Trump in his New York apartment, and the arrest of his cabinet members in Washington. The NYPD, D.C. Police, and Federal Guards are 'asked'...not ordered to stand down.
However there's an armed stand-off with Secret Service Agents in Trump's apartment for a short time. A call from the Chief Justice assures them of the legality of the action.
A public announcement on all TV cable, and Online News Services is made. Later an international press conference is held at the Lincoln Memorial. This where all the causes, and facts of this action are made public,...including the Blackmail of the President of the United States by Russia as well as other overseas intrusions into the governing of this Republic.
Within a few days there are insurrections by some western state national guard units, and terror attacks by rightwing extremists. These acts of armed treason are combated by the regular forces of the Army, and Air Force as well as a number of Black Ops against heavily armed compounds of rightist militias.
Even as combat rages in two western states Vice President Pence succeeds Trump as President. This again via the 25th Amendment.
Pence calls for national calm, and an end of the fighting promising full amnesty for all opposition combatants. ....he even tones down his more questionable far right objectives.
There's a demand for a new election by a large majority of the population,....the Supreme Court hears the case.
End of part one.
