Charlotte, NC — There was utter chaos around the US Capitol on Wednesday as Congress met to certify the Electoral College vote. One person was killed as rioters stormed the Capitol, bypassing barricades and busting windows and doors. The mainstream media related that these were “Trump supporters” that had just left a rally near the White House and walked to the Capitol.
A few hours later, the Capitol was back under control and it seemed that things were getting back to normal. Congress started the process of certifying the results that the Trump supporters were protesting. Apparently, the work around Washington, DC did not end there.
Multiple media outlets began reporting that Cabinet members were beginning discussions about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. It’s an idea that Democrats had suggested before, but there was never support from the majority of the cabinet.
That Trump loyalty appears to be on thin ice, or completely gone. CNN reports that many Republicans and Cabinet members support a move to remove Trump from office. Some suggested through the 25th Amendment. Others suggested through impeachment. Either way, it’s clear they are ready to move on.
Maggie Haberman, the New York Times White House correspondent, reports that the discussions are coming from those who are concerned about what might happen in the next two weeks. They believe that taking action to remove Trump could prevent further insurrection. Or it could result in the opposite and incite the people even more.
There are some significant issues ahead for the next two weeks for our nation and the Republican Party as we move to the end of the Trump presidency.
A CBS News reporter says that there are several expected resignations in the coming days from the administration. It’s not clear who those are, but the First Lady’s Chief of Staff resigned amid the chaos.
Source close to Trump says more resignations are expected in the next 24 hours.

Some suspected rumors of those who may resign in the next 24 hours are Vice President Mike Pence, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and many other key Cabinet members. Others have suggested that Trump himself may choose to resign, but that seems doubtful based on his nature.
Some Members of Congress who have been staunch supporters of Trump are moving on as well. One report said that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said enough was enough and he was no longer opposing anything. The group of Senators who signed on to the initial objection, which was twelve total, was down to just six in the final vote count. Sen. Kelley Loeffler (R-Ga), who campaigned for reelection on her opposition to the election, changed her mind and voted to certify the results.
As it appears the loyalty to President Trump is fading, where do we go from here? The majority of Republicans will quickly jump to blame Trump for everything. They will claim that he incited violence, he caused deep divisions, he was a racist, and that the party needs a new direction. That’s a big difference from 24 hours before.
All of this teaches us one thing about most Republicans in Congress. When times become difficult and challenging, they will give in to anything that the Democrats want or say. Democrats called Trump crazy, a lot of Republicans have given in. They have said that Trump incited violence and many Republicans gave in to it last night. Democrats even suggested that Trump should be removed by impeachment or the 25th Amendment, and it seems that some Republicans are again giving in.
Early in the morning on Thursday, President Trump committed to a transfer of power. This was essentially his concession to Joe Biden.
…fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

In two weeks, Joe Biden will be sworn in as the first puppet President in American history. He has already told us he is controlled by Kamala Harris and Barack Obama. He has surrounded himself with radical leaders who want to continue to bloat our government, increase regulations, and move us into socialism.
While the mainstream media and the Democrats would like to say that this is all about Trump, it’s not. It is about so much more than Trump. Loyalty to Trump among those in Congress may fade but it has told Americans those who are willing to stand up and fight for conservative values and freedom. The Republican Party faces an identity crisis like it has never experienced before.
The party cannot survive without the millions of passionate Trump supporters. They will be unable to ever win another Presidential election or win key close battle states without those who were most passionate about the President’s Make America Great Again agenda. So while they quickly move to alienate President Trump, how can they do so without alienating all of these passionate supporters?
