Not sure I agree with this. I don't think anyone in the House or Senate or the CIA or the FBI or even at the Pentagon would indulge President Trump 's madness, were he to "order" a nuclear strike. The stakes are too high, the backlash would be unimaginable. I trust the U.S. institutions and checks/balances system.
Faith is good, facts are better. Only the SecDef and the military staff involved in carrying out the order would have the opportunity to stop such an order. And of those, neither can lawfully prevent it; the secdef can slow it down by refusing to confirm the order, but then his deputy gets a shot when the president fires him.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nati...mand_Authority

The US system of checks and balances is deliberately short when it comes to the nuclear football, as a speedy response would be required in any justifiable use of nukes... but that means it's not as balanced as other aspects of the government.

I'm not a person who generally bets, but I'd put a wager on one of the options above.

While I don't *expect* Trump to be impeached and Pence to take over, here's why I would be *relieved* if Pence were in the White House. There are certain things that other post-WWII Presidents would not have done, or would have considered. I don't think that holds for Trump. It wouldn't surprise me to read that he ordered a nuclear strike on Pyongyang tomorrow. I don't think that would happen if Pence were President.

Don't get me wrong. Pence is not only a staunch conservative, but a devout Christian. I certainly understand why LBGQ activists would prefer Trump to Spence. I just think that Spence would be bad in the way most Republican Presidents are. But I think he would be competent and not a wild cannon, so I will be better able to sleep at night.
Many psychiatrists in the USA think Trump is mentally ill https://www.google.ch/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=...p+mentally+ill

Re: How will Trump Presidency End?

Should not worry too much about Trump, it would seem that his transmogrification to a neocon is well underway and he will follow the neocon agenda to the letter.

Indeed and I miss Bannon over there. Fortunately he is building something for Europe: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...opulist-forces

BTW: His interview with Kyle Bass is great.

Interesting to re-read this thread (it's only 3 pages so far), to see how well (and in some cases how bad) some of these posts have aged.

There is no "Impeached twice" option. The poll is rigged.

Time to make the same poll for Biden.

Even I didn't have impeached twice on my radar and I follow US politics closely. Let's give Biden a pass until he's actually in office. If Trump and his followers have their way Biden will never get sworn in.

Re: How will Trump Presidency End?

Like Trump himself, it is reported that due to lack of maintenance his wall in Arizona is falling down

The Arizona audit of the presidential election results was supposed to be handed over to lawmakers today but has not yet happened.
