Well yeah, but if that’s the case then it’s Pence or somebody else actually usurping the constitutional powers of the President, unlike the DCNG mobilization from earlier, which is a hell of a bold step.

I mean, not necessarily. They probably did go through the steps of putting the paper on his desk and making him sign it; it's not like he was some super-hands-on, reading-heavy guy before all this, so I'm not sure it's really THAT much of a usurpation in their eyes, to them it probably doesn't feel that different from business as usual.

Yes, you have, you support treason.

No, I have condemned those persons who stormed the Capitol Building. I have supported the electoral college vote challenge by Republican President Trump and the Republican Senators and House Representatives who did:

Watch the video of Obama and Hillary Clinton, objecting to the electoral votes for President Bush during the 2000 election, while claiming Republican vote fraud. If they can do it and they did, than Republicans and Trump can do it too.

https://rumble.com/vcgml9-obama-and-hil ... -2005.html

President Trump never said commit violence. President Trump never said storm the Capitol Building.

We as in Trump supporters strongly disagree with you and the persons who strongly agree with you. It is called Democracy.

Federal wildlife officials in Florida are reportedly seeking information on the perpetrators of an attack on a manatee, which apparently had the word “Trump” scraped into its back.

The attack on the animal was reported by the Citrus County Chronicle, which showed a picture of the large aquatic mammal with the name of the US president clearly visible by being etched into its skin.

“The US Fish and Wildlife Service is investigating the harassment of a manatee,” the paper said, adding that the manatee had been videoed in the Blue Hole spring, on the Homosassa River in the state.

Well quite hence my initial ask as to the legal status of this, it's basically been radio silence for coming on to a week now.. is he just sulking like a baby and willingly letting people do any communications or is he being told what to say and do - as I understand it there's been zero conversations between Trump and Pence.

Is there really much of a functional difference? If he stepped back, humiliated, and was "letting" people do these communications, I'm pretty sure at this point no one would be willing to let him take full charge again; if he's being directed under a full-blown house arrest type situation then he's probably also sulking like a baby and pretending that he's a willing participant.

And Pelosi's call notwithstanding, can you refuse an order from your Commander in Chief?

Yes, you're allowed to refuse unconstitutional orders. Which I assume is the basis for whatever the hell the Joint Chiefs have been doing lately.

They really should do something to remove him from power pronto because the man is unstable.

Formally removing him would require effort and the investment of political capital, and stir the ire of the far-right mob. Much more convenient to simply pretend he doesn't exist for two weeks. What's the worst that could happen?

It is disappointing that they didn’t reveal these security vulnerabilities responsibly, to be honest. Disclosure is always a tricky thing and under normal circumstances this is the worst way to do it (which an actual security researcher should know). Even when you’re claiming it’s for law enforcement purposes you can disclose it privately to them without purposefully creating a privacy breach yourself.

"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.
