Member of the JOINT CHIEFS researched the 25th Amendment for removing a president from office after red-faced Trump's 'twenty-minute tirade' about Afghanistan, former Defense chief Mark Esper writes in new book

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10787309/Member-JOINT-CHIEFS-researched-25th-Amendment-Trump.html

One of the nation's top military officers was so concerned about former President Donald Trump's red-faced 'tirade' about Afghanistan that he began researching the 25th Amendment on removing a president from office, former Pentagon boss Mark Esper writes in his new book.

The development came after Trump made the 'stupid' decision to make false and 'baseless' claims about the military in front of the top assembled military chiefs during a White House meeting.

It was a performance Esper termed 'reprehensible,' and prompted side conversations among the military brass.

Esper wasn't the only person present who was gobsmacked.




eta: I damn sure am not buying his f*******g book. I'm quite confident he could have done something productive WHILE he was in office, greedy a******le.

A Russian army helicopter violated Finland's airspace in an apparent attempt to frighten the country as it readies to join NATO.

The military Mi-17 transport chopper flew 2-3 miles inside the Finnish border after 10.30 this morning (7.30am GMT), according to the country's Ministry of Defence.

'The aircraft type is a Mi-17 helicopter and the depth of the suspected violation is about four to five kilometres', a ministry spokesman told AFP.

Russia previously violated Finnish airspace on April 8, the first time this year.

eta: I forgot her daughter loves Disney. So, yes, she is selfishly penalizing her daughter.

Louisiana House committee voted to make abortion homicide, both for mother and the doctor

https://www.theadvertiser.com/story/news/2022/05/04/louisiana-lawmakers-advance-bill-make-abortion-crime-murder/9648833002/

A Louisiana legislative committee on Wednesday advanced a bill to make abortion a crime of homicide in which the mother or those assisting her in terminating the pregnancy can be charged.

The measure cleared the House Appropriations Committee on a 7-2 vote despite at least one of the representatives voting in favor acknowledging the bill is unconstitutional.

Rep. Danny McCormick said his House Bill 813 should move forward even though the U.S. Supreme Court seems poised to overturn Roe v. Wade that guarantees abortion rights as soon as June, according to an opinion leaked from the high court this week.

"We can't wait on the Supreme Court," said McCormick, a Republican from Oil City.
