Could Pelosi Be President?

by Daveda Gruber

Even President Trump brought it up. Is it possible that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi could become president if the 2020 election is delayed or if the Electoral College has not yet named a successor?

Well, it depends on lots other factors.

Judge Andrew Napolitano, who is a senior judicial analyst for FOX News, has a theory.

While on FOX Business with Stuart Varney, Napolitano said, “It might be right. President Trump’s term ends at precisely noon on Jan. 20, 2021. If the Electoral College has not yet named a successor, presumably either Donald Trump or Joe Biden, then whoever is the speaker of the House would become the acting president of the United States.”

He went on to say, “If the Democrats retain their majority in the House, and it appears likely that they will, but if they do, and if they choose Mrs. Pelosi, knowing at that point that they’re choosing the president of the United States, then it would be she.”

The judge added, “Stated simply, whoever is the sitting speaker of the United States, would become president at noon on Jan. 20, 2021, if the Electoral College has failed to elect someone.”

So then, if the House gets flipped, the Speaker of the House would be a Republican. That person would likely be House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and he would become the interim president.

The Electoral College consists of 538 electors, and an absolute majority of at least 270 electoral votes is required to win the election.

But I see another scenario that could happen. If ballots are not counted because of mail in ballots and the Post office’s inability to deliver them in time, the Electoral College doesn’t have the ability to see who was elected. They also don’t know who would have the majority in the House or the Senate, for that matter.

According to the Constitution,  Congress would run the country. But then the outgoing Congress would not be known nor would the incoming Congress be known.

That would lead to an unprecedented situation. There is no law in place that would cover this type of a circumstance.

Hopefully, enough votes will be counted to determine a winner.

My prediction is that when all is said and done, we will have re-elected Trump.

Hunter Biden $450 DC Lien Paid

by Daveda Gruber

The son of presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, had to come up with some money.

Allegedly a tax lien filed against him in July for $453,890. It was released just six days later. The issue was resolved according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The younger Biden had claimed to be broke during a child custody case where Biden eventually agreed to make child support payments.

He had failed to turn over financial records in that case.

Even so, when the lien was placed on July 9th, it was released on July 15th.

It was not confirmed if the lien was paid.

Hunter Biden’s finances have been under scrutiny since a private investigator made an attempt to intervene in the child custody case in 2019.

A private investigation firm had claimed that in December they lawfully obtained access to Biden’s bank account records. That collection of information confirmed his involvement in a massive, $156 million “counterfeiting scheme.”

Biden’s legal team strongly denied the claims which were said to be unverified.

They called the effort by the Florida-based D&A Investigations an obviously bogus scheme by a non-party simply to make scandalous allegations in the pending suit. They also claimed that it was to gain media attention without any material or pertinent material.

Biden’s financial matter came to light in connection with the House’s impeachment inquiry effort of President Trump.

Instead of finding an impeachable offense against Trump, Hunter Biden’s seat on Burisma Holdings, which is an energy company in Ukraine, was uncovered.

Burisma had been under investigation by Ukrainian authorities in the past. Then Vice President Biden used pressure to have the prosecutor in charge fired to which many called a quid pro quo.

The elder Biden denies any wrong doing.

If Hunter Biden had enough money to come up with it in six days, maybe he wasn’t as broke as he claimed?

Maybe daddy picked up the tab? Your guess is as good as mine.

The whole affair appears sketchy to me but then certain people never seem to face justice for the potentially illegal deeds thy do.

BOOM: Is Biden’s Health Worse than We Thought?

by Daveda Gruber

The presumptive presidential candidate, Joe Biden has had health issues that may explain not only his cognitive issues, but also his anger.

Biden suffered from several episodes of increasingly severe neck pain, and was having regular headaches.

There was bad enough pain that it required  him to carry around a big bottle of Tylenol for headaches and pain in his neck.

Biden suffered two brain aneurysms, one on the right side and one on the left. Each required surgery with high risk of long-term impact on brain functionality.

In February of 1988 Biden was taken by long-distance ambulance to Walter Reed Army Medical Center and given lifesaving surgery to correct an intracranial berry aneurysm that had begun leaking.

Another operation to repair a second aneurysm, which had caused no symptoms but was at risk of bursting, was performed in May of 1988.

The hospitalization and recovery kept Biden from his duties in the Senate for seven months.

While recuperating, he suffered a pulmonary embolism which is major complication.

Pulmonary embolism can be minor and go unnoticed, or it can be significant and cause difficulty breathing, sharp chest pain and even death. Less commonly, the clots can also travel through the heart and back to the rest of the body, including the brain. This is called paradoxical embolism.

When he underwent a microsurgical craniotomy at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The chances of surviving the surgery were 50 percent, but the likelihood of waking up with serious deficits were probable.

Biden, at the time wrote, “Maybe I should have been frightened at this point, but I felt calm. In fact, I felt becalmed, like I was floating gently in the wide-open sea. It surprised me, but I had no real fear of dying. I’d long since accepted the fact that life’s guarantees don’t include a fair shake.”

Biden was completely isolated during his recovery. That decision was made by his wife Jill and his staff.

This meant no work or phone calls. Even when President Ronald Reagan called Biden twice, Jill was adamant about her rule and would not let Biden take the calls.

Each required surgery with high risk of long-term impact on brain functionality.

In retrospect, Biden’s family came to believe the early end to his presidential campaign in 1988 had been a blessing in disguise.

Had he still been campaigning in 1988, he might well not have stopped to seek medical attention and he may not have survived.

In 2013, Biden said of his surgeries, “they take a saw and they cut your head off” and “they literally had to take the top of my head off.” He also said he was told he would have less than a 50% chance of full recovery.

Ruptured brain aneurysms are fatal in about 50% of cases. Of those who survive, about 66% suffer some permanent neurological deficit. Approximately 15% of people with a ruptured aneurysm die before reaching the hospital. Most of the deaths are due to rapid and massive brain injury from the initial bleeding.

Stroke is a common cause of vascular dementia. During a stroke, your brain goes without blood and oxygen for a period of time.

An aneurysm or blood clot may prevent blood from flowing properly. This may cause part of your brain to go without oxygen and blood.

After a Brain Aneurysm/AVM/Hemorrhagic Stroke, survivors and family members say one of the most difficult emotions to handle is anger and frustration. Most survivors would describe themselves as having a personality change or a lack of impulse control due to anger.

Along with each required surgery, there comes a high risk of long-term impact on brain functionality.

This information could answer many questions about Biden.

Anger? Yes, his speaking about taking people outside to decide an argument may be because of anger.

His constant gaffs may be his brain not functioning the way it should.

Also, Biden has an irregular heartbeat, known as nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Biden has not required any medication or other treatment for this heart condition but he does take a blood thinner. His condition, also called AFib, can increase the risk of blood clots.

Biden’s hospitalization was complicated by a blood clot that lodged in his lung. The man has many health issues.

Dementia is a collective term used to describe various symptoms of cognitive decline, such as forgetfulness. It is a symptom of several underlying diseases and brain disorders. Dementia is not a single disease in itself, but a general term to describe symptoms of impairment in memory, communication, and thinking.

With the health issues he has had and conditions he suffers from them, Biden should not be running for President of the United States.

I did research to find this information. Make this article go viral.

Biden Accuses Trump of Dereliction of Duty

by Daveda Gruber:

After quite some time in his basement in Delaware, Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, had his first press conference in close to three months on Tuesday.

Needless to say, Biden didn’t have anything nice to say about President Trump and his response to the reports from the New York Times that Russian intelligence operatives offered to pay bounties to Taliban linked militants who killed U.S. troops that are stationed in Afghanistan.

Trump has adamantly denied that he was briefed on any such matter before the New York Times article came out.

Biden was taking questions from reporters when he said, “The idea that somehow he didn’t know is a dereliction of duty if that’s the case. And if he was briefed and he didn’t do anything about it that is a dereliction of duty.”

Besides the report from the New York Times, the Washington Post seemed to jump on the bandwagon and reported that the Russian bounties are “believed to have resulted in the deaths of several U.S. service members.”

Further reports from the Associated Press alleged that officials said an April 2019 attack on an American convoy that killed three Marines in Afghanistan is under investigation.

Trump tweeted this on Monday:

This tweet came from Trump on Sunday.

John Bolton, who was national security adviser until he was fired recently, also allegedly told colleagues at the time that he briefed Trump on the intelligence assessment in March 2019.

According to officials who allegedly leaked the information to the New York Times, the evaluation concerning Russians and bounties to kill American military was included in at least one of President Donald Trump’s written daily intelligence briefings at the time.

So we have information from unnamed sources who reportedly told mainstream media, or as I like to call them, “Fake News” and Bolton, the man who is trying to get rich off of a book that he put out to smear Trump.

On Tuesday Biden said that it was unimaginable that Trump would not have known about the intelligence, and called into question the president’s cognitive abilities.

The former Vice President went on to say, “The president talks about cognitive capability, but he is not cognitively aware of what’s going on.”

Biden also called on Congress to investigate the matter and, come Election Day, “for the public to decide whether he is fit for office.”

Now, that’s Biden questioning Trump’s cognitive capability.

I’m not sure what my readers have seen of Biden speaking, or rather trying to speak, but I can tell you that Trump has all his marbles but from what I’ve seen, Biden doesn’t.

Biden was better off hiding in his basement but then we wouldn’t get to see his cognitive capability on full display.

Liberal Groups Warn Biden He Could Lose Election

by Daveda Gruber:

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee will receive a letter that was signed on Monday by over fifty left-leaning groups.

The groups feel that Biden’s response to the protests over the death of George Floyd were “far from sufficient” and that his past performance in the Senate needed to be addressed.

The letter, which was reported by The New York Post, states, “As a Senator, you not only supported but in many cases authored and championed laws that expanded mass incarceration, increased police powers, and exacerbated racial disparities in surveillance and sentencing. These laws broke apart Black communities and robbed many young Black people of a future. They are a part of the history that has led us to this moment, and their ongoing fallout has contributed to the outpourings of grief and anger we are seeing today.”

The letter goes on to condemn Biden’s present campaign commitment to add $300 million in funding for community policing programs. It also says that Biden’s campaign stance described as a Harding-like “return to normalcy” is insufficient.

The letter states that Biden cannot win the election without the enthusiasm of Black voters.

You can see the entire letter here:

Besides the Black vote becoming more of a challenge, Biden is constantly ridiculed for his gaffs, and there are many.

Within his own party, Biden faces more Progressive members whom have called for aggressive anti-police measures. They want defunding, or even abolishing, police forces.

The broader electorate disagree with radical measures.

Biden has called on Congress to pass a law banning the use of chokeholds by police. He would also like to see a stop to giving police forces military weapons.

The former Vice President would like to create a model “use of force” standard and to improve oversight and accountability of police forces.

In a recent USA Today op-ed, Biden said, “While I do not believe federal dollars should go to police departments violating people’s rights or turning to violence as the first resort, I do not support defunding police. The better answer is to give police departments the resources they need to implement meaningful reforms, and to condition other federal dollars on completing those reforms.”

It appears Biden has a deep hole that he has to climb out of because his presumptive voters are not all in agreement with all of his polices and beliefs.

One can imagine Biden clawing out of the basement and peeking around to see if everything was safe, comes to mind.

November is not that far away but I wouldn’t be looking forward to the debates with President Trump that will precede the presidential election, if I were Biden.

Trump 2020

Biden and Comey Among Officials Unmasked:

by Daveda Gruber:

During the presidential transition period a list of names of top Obama administration officials allegedly requested to “unmask” the identity of General Michael Flynn.

Declassification of the list of the notorious development was made by Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell.

The list was then sent to Attorney General Bill Barr and GOP Senators Chuck Grassley, R-IA., and Ron Johnson, R-WI., who then made the documents public.

The list is long and includes former Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden isn’t the only interesting name on the list. In fact there are quite a few. Here are a couple:

Former FBI Director James Comey

Former CIA Director John Brennan

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper

Former President Barrack Obama’s chief of staff Denis McDonough

The entire list can be seen here:

The declassified list shows officials who may have received Lt. General Flynn’s identity in response to a request processed between  November 8, 2016 and January 31, 2017 to unmask any identity that had been generically referred to in an NSA foreign intelligence report.

The document said, “Each individual was an authorized recipient of the original report and the unmasking was approved through NSA’s standard process, which includes a review of the justification for the request. Only certain personnel are authorized to submit unmasking requests into the NSA system. In this case, 16 authorized individuals requested unmasking for [REDACTED] different NSA intelligence reports for select identified principals.”

The document also said, “While the principals are identified below, we cannot confirm they saw the unmasked information. This response does not include any requests outside of the specified time-frame.”

Grenell wrote to GOP senators and included the list. He wrote, “I declassified the enclosed document, which I am providing to you for your situational awareness.”

The decision had already been made by Grenell to declassify information that he had uncovered about the Obama administration officials who were involved in the “unmasking” of former national security adviser Flynn.

Not only do Trump supporters, myself included, feel that Flynn was dishonestly targeted and that the Obama administration had top level officials involved to bring Flynn down because of his loyalty to President Trump and to the United States.

I would assume that Biden was unaware of what was actually uncovered when he told ABC News’ “Good Morning America” that he knew “nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn.”

Biden called the topic a “diversion” from the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden had a little more information and made his statement clearer by saying, “I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted. I’m sorry. … I was aware that there was . . . that they asked for an investigation, but that’s all I know about it, and I don’t think anything else.”

He doesn’t think there was anything else? Actually, I believe has a thinking problem and that fact is coming closer and closer into light.

If the investigation goes into place as I feel it will, Biden may have to testify to Congress.

Will he claim forgetfulness?

Get your popcorn ready. This show is about to get rather interesting.

Bernie’s Flame Burnt Out

by Daveda Gruber:

The self-proclaimed Socialist Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, D-VT., has suspended his campaign.

It appears that former Vice President Joe Biden is the presumed nomination.

In his second straight presidential bid Sanders issued a brief statement to his campaign during an all-staff conference call on Wednesday morning.

The senator from Vermont was trailing Biden in delegates after major primary defeats but was hanging in the race to promote his progressive policy positions.

Sanders gave a virtual news briefing around the noon hour and praised Biden as the presumed nominee. He called President Trump the most dangerous president in history as he praised his supporters and encouraged them to keep up the fight for his policies and the movement that he represents.

Biden was already moving ahead and was planning to consider running mates. I would guess that Biden will go ahead and pick a running mate.

Voters in Wisconsin went to the polls Tuesday, but results are not expected until Monday, April 13.

Biden is expected to win that primary and that may have helped to encourage Sanders to drop out or suspend his campaign.

While Biden may be pleased that Sanders’ has suspended his campaign, I really don’t believe that Sanders progressive supporters are going to support Biden or any other candidate, for that matter.

No Audience for Biden-Sanders Debate

by Daveda Gruber:

The debate between former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders I-Vt., will be debating without an audience on Sunday.

The Democratic National Committee had planned the Presidential debate to take place in Phoenix, Ariz., but that has changed due to the fears that have mounted with the coronavirus.

On Thursday DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa said in a statement, “Out of an abundance of caution and in order to reduce cross-country travel, all parties have decided that the best path forward is to hold Sunday’s debate at CNN’s studio in Washington, D.C., with no live audience.”

Also announced was that Jorge Ramos, who was going to be a moderator, will step back from this debate. Ramos had contact with someone who had been in contact with someone else who tested positive for the virus.

Hinojosa also said, “In addition, the DNC, CNN and Univision recently learned that Univision anchor and moderator Jorge Ramos was in proximity with someone who was in direct contact with a person that tested positive for coronavirus. Both Mr. Ramos and the person he was in contact with are in good health and symptom-free. Despite being cleared by medical professionals and out of an abundance of caution, Jorge has decided to step aside from participating in the upcoming March 15 democratic debate. Univision’s News Anchor Ilia Calderón will moderate the debate in his place.”

She continued, “Our number one priority has and will continue to be the safety of our staff, campaigns and all those involved in the debate.”

The World Health Organization designated the coronavirus, or COVID-19, an international pandemic and that appeared to be the reason to move the debate.

It has been reported that as of Thursday morning, there were more than 1,300 cases of coronavirus in the United States. Forty-four states, including Washington, D.C. have seen cases of the coronavirus. Thirty-six coronavirus deaths have been reported in the United States.

Most people who get the coronavirus have mild cases with symptoms being fever and cough and usually recover in about two weeks but older adults and people with pre-existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia. The virus attacks mainly the lungs and heart.

President Trump has called for a more inclusive temporary travel ban to be enforced and to begin on Friday.

The President and Vice President Mike Pence have both been giving televised public announcements over the concerns of the coronavirus.

This is not a time to be planning travel. Keep safe and wash your hands often. Keep away from large gatherings and stay home if you feel sick and contact your healthcare provider.

Comey Gets a No Thanks for Endorsing Biden

by Daveda Gruber:

Former Vice President Joe Biden has been getting endorsed by former running mates, as some drop out of the race for the top spot as the Democrat front-runner but he got an unexpected endorsement from the former FBI Director James Comey.

Comey left the Republican Party in 2018 because of a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. He voted in his first Democratic primary and gave his endorsement through Twitter. He tweeted this:

Biden was eager to accept the former presidential candidates’ endorsements. Senator Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg both suspended their presidential campaigns and joined Biden on the campaign trail and endorsed him.

The former Vice President got a much needed boost entering Super Tuesday.

Biden’s campaign rapid response director Andrew Bates was quick to spot the endorsement from Comey and answered in his own tweet:

It appears that the Democrats are still holding a grudge for Comey over his announcement in 2016, just days before the 2016 presidential election, that the FBI was reopening its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information and her use of a private email server while she worked for the government.

So as much as Comey would like to stay relevant, both parties seem to not want any part of him.

I wonder if Comey was surprised to get the no thanks on his endorsement? Too bad it didn’t get sent snail mail to the Biden campaign. They could have just written Return to Sender on the envelope.

I’d say Comey was shocked otherwise he wouldn’t have bothered to do it in the first place.

Biden Thinks He’s Running for the US Senate

by Daveda Gruber:

Former Vice President Joe Biden forgot that he was running to be the Democratic nominee for the presidency and instead told people that he was a Democratic candidate for the “United States Senate.”

Biden, along with other 2020 candidates, attended the South Carolina Democrat Party’s First in the South Dinner. It has been reported that the former VP received a rather long ovation. As a matter of fact, the longest out of all the candidates.

Biden must have been in his glory because he feels that he’s got South Carolina locked up for his first win because he hasn’t won a primary in any state yet.

South Carolina has been Biden’s “firewall” after losing primaries in Iowa,  New Hampshire and Nevada.

But Biden can’t seem to remember things and it results in gaffes that continue to make people, who are voters, re-think their options.

When Biden was wrapping up at the dinner, he forgot which office that he was actually running for.

Biden was begging the voters for their support and said, “You’re the ones who sent Barack Obama the presidency. And I have a simple proposition here: I’m here to ask you for your help. Where I come from, you don’t go very far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over. If you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden. Give me a look though, okay?”

Twitter gives a lot of information and here’s a tweet that shows Biden saying it:

Biden has been a senator in the past but he’s not running for a Senate position now. The man wants to be President of the United States and apparently forgot.

These past weeks have not been kind to the forgetful Biden. He had voters wondering about his claim to have been arrested in South Africa trying to free Nelson Mandela from prison. It was the first time for that story and there are no facts to substantiate it.

Biden also got confused about his late son Beau’s position and told CNN that the deceased son had served as U.S. attorney general. I fact, Beau Biden was attorney general for the state of Delaware from 2007-2015. He was never a U.S. Attorney General.

In a way, it would be kinder if Biden didn’t win the state of South Carolina. Maybe that would make him get out of this race and stop making a fool out of himself.

It is starting to look sad to see an old man struggling to remember key facts.
