Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Pelosi talks of invoking the 25th amendment. Could someone of the Biden/Harris ticket tell her to shut up!

Applies more to Biden! And Harris becomes the first woman POTUS. Will HRC have a stroke in anger?

One of the more hilarious clips circulating the twitterverse this summer was Killary, at home webcam, promoting her NEW! podcast venture. Wm Jefferson was rolling around (seated) in the background trying to keep in frame and couldn't get a word in edgewise.

Trump is under the influence of Dexamethasone a steroid known to have psychiatric side effects.  His recent behavior is increasingly bizarre.

New Bonkers Interview: Trump Says He Beat Biden in Second Debate, an Event That Has Yet to Happen

"The president, with guidance from the Trump sycophant Fox host, hit  many of his usual unhinged, baseless, racist, dangerous, callous,  boast-filled notes during the 55-minute call-in interview.
The president said he will not participate in a virtual debate,  planned for October 15, because the commission's action is all a ruse to  protect Joe Biden. Trump also claimed that not only did he beat Biden  in the first debate but that he also scored a victory against his  opponent in the second debate -- the future debate that he had just told  Bartiromo he would not attend."

I note the man has operational control over thousands of nuclear weapons and maybe it's a good idea to have a way to control him should his dementia get even worse.

Remove her from office ... Pelosi Act of Defiance a month before the Presidential Election is ill-timed and will solely serve to give oxygen to a Trump campaign already declared brain dead. She lacks ability to reason. So poor!

I agree the move is politically ill-timed.  And I'd rather not have a total madman at the helm of the US' nuclear arsenal.  

IMO, there is a very real danger of Trump ordering a nuclear strike on, say, the People's Republic of China and with the top military commanders in quarantine due to Covid I'm not sure there's anyone capable of stopping him.

More likely targeting the Mullahs of Iran ...

One last favor to family friend Bibi in a SARS Covid-2 infected Israel ... top notch hi-tech and medical technology ... excellent weapons and nuclear arsenal.

Israel's best friend in the White House

Benjamin Netanyahu's campaign speeches, billboards and social media videos have all heavily featured President Donald Trump's image, statements and pro-Israel actions as endorsements of the long-seated prime minister.

Sheldon Adelson and support for a nuclear attack on Iran ...

Have no fear ... two military valets carrying the "nuclear football" have contracted corona.
