About three dozen House Democrats have signed a letter asking President Biden to renounce his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, according to reports.
We agree Biden is too feeble to make that decision but we don’t want that power taken from the presidency.
“Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” the letter from Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif., and obtained by Politico reads. “Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.”
There is also a real risk in an emergency of having more than one decide.
LET PELOSI OR HARRIS DECIDE?
The letter continues: “While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so. The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.”
The alternatives they offered were the vice president or the House Speaker. In this current situation, it would be an unpopular leftist or a hate-filled leftist.
Currently, the President has the code and passes down the order — the ‘nuclear football.’
Pelosi said she spoke to Milley on Jan. 5 “to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.”
Pelosi wants to control the code no doubt. She’s dangerous. It took her an hour to decide to send in the National Guard during the Capitol riot. In fact, she has the sole authority over Capitol security and it was undermanned.
She also allegedly tried to arrange a coup against then-President Trump and that was from the general in charge and published in the NY Times.
The plan all along has been to get Joe Biden elected and then remove him from office, leaving Kamala Harris at bat and Nancy Pelosi on deck..
ValJarr and El Presidente Chicago Jesus (the One!) want to help out their comrades in Iran.
Yes we can? Oh hell NO!
So the Demorats have admitted Joe is unfit for the office, to give Pelosi or Harris control of the nuclear football would be the same as Bevis and Butthead having it !!!!!!!
First this would be clearly un-Constitutional. The President is the Commander-in-Chief. Next it is foolish since it gives enemies an advantage. This then calls in question what people were thinking when they voted for Traitor Joe. Yet another reason to think the 2020 election was stolen. A majority of Americans aren’t totally stupid!
The correct interpretation of this latest move is the ChiComs want to obstruct, restrict and delay a response to a nuclear attack on the US. A few minutes advantage would allow the ChiComs to vaporate most US targets while suffering little or no response from the US. This is just another ChiCom wish their agents in the White House and Congress have been ordered to deliver.
