IMPEACHED TWICE: IT’S TIME TO REMOVE 45!

This campaign began on January 6, 2021 after I couldn’t stomach the insurrection at the Capitol, I had to do something, I dipped a toe before, but now I’m all in. 45 crossed a line even I didn’t think he was capable of, I started the petition to implore  Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment and remove this man before he causes more harm.  On January 12, 2021, Mike Pence made a decision to stand by the man who’s words and actions caused an attempted coup, damaged the hall of Democracy and left 6 dead. Pence’s cowardice will only come back to bite him, but for now let’s tell 45 - “You’re Fired!”. After the domestic terrorist attack on the US Capitol building on January 6, 2021, spurned on by Donald Trump and Rudolph Guiliani’s inciting words at a rally earlier that day. Trump directed his followers to march to the Capitol, taking to heart Rudy’s “Trial by Combat” comment.  The aftermath of the damage from the breach is palpable, 6 lives lost, many, many Americans feeling like the appointed leader of our government is more than unfit to serve, but actually a criminal. He must be removed immediately! Today, we saw the worst of Americans and it will not be forgotten. The attack took the lives of 4 civilians, multiple law enforcement members injured and one Capitol Police Officer Dead. It didn’t need to happen, our democracy did not need this challenge. Please help in signing this petition, so we can send a message to Mike Pence and the leaders in Washington to let them know that we are disgusted and appalled by these actions by “Donald Trump’s Domestic Terrorists”. Nothing less than removal of his authority and presidential privilege will do at this point, the one person elected to protect the country above all others, very, very literally let the foxes into the henhouse and caused damage and destruction, leaving 6 people dead.

Tell Sen. McConnell to strip Cruz (R-TX) and Hawley (R-MO) of their committee assignments.

Senator McConnell, Today you gave an impassioned speech in the well of the Senate asking for the members of your caucus to respect the will of the states, to respect the will of the people, and to respect the sanctity of law. You asked for your members to be part of the unity to bring our country back together during a painful and difficult year. You pleaded with your caucus to respect both “we the people” as well as respect your wishes as their leader. Two of your members stand out as Senators who neither respect you and your leadership nor the will of the States, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO). Based on the fact that they clearly have no respect for the will of the States and the people who represent them, as a result of their disrespect of you and your request to preserve our democracy, as a result of the chaos and lawlessness that they spurned that placed capital police, Members of Congress, and their staff in danger and fear, based on their disrespect for their oath to protect and defend the Constitution and what it represents, our Democracy, we request that in the 117th Congress you strip these two Senators of their committee assignments.  These members have disrespected our nation and no longer deserve to sit in any committee in any position of authority until they can prove once again that they respect the people and the government that those seats represent. Remove Senator Cruz and Hawley from all committee assignments!

Impeach Donald J. Trump before 1/20/2021

The 25th Amendment says that if the president becomes unable to do his job, the vice president becomes the president. The amendment was invoked when both Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush underwent medical procedures, temporarily transferring power to their vice presidents. But it also has a mechanism, known as Section Four, which can remove the president immediately if the vice-president and the majority of the cabinet decide that the president has become “unfit to carry out the powers and duties of the office.” By transmitting a letter to Congress, the vice-president then becomes the acting president and remains so unless and until Congress takes action refusing to allow that transfer of power to stand.  I am respectfully asking that after the incident that occurred on January 6, 2021 on Capitol Hill where President Donald J. Trump stood behind plate glass And on a microphone said “I think I’ll march with you to Capitol Hill” of course he was not there but this did encourage proud boys amongst others and all other trump supporters to go there and break windows and knock down doors then they got in. I fear for the safety and well being of all members of the house and senate and anyone else in DC with Trump in office. Here in Southeast Texas where I live I’ve had several Trump  supporters thinks it’s funny to literally ride my bumper of my vehicle I’m working so hard to pay off and have even nearly side swiped me , called me inappropriate names out the windows , gave me the middle finger amongst other things and nearly ran me off the road all because I proudly have a Biden / Harris 2020 window decal on my window which I refuse to remove cause I’m proud to be a Democrat and support our President and Vice President. Please read this before the House and senate and make sure President Biden and Vice President Harris as well as former President Obama sees this  Thank You,  Much Love and respect to you all,  Sincerely,  Jonathan Robert Blinn
