Joe Biden is the President of the United States of America. If he dies, resigns, or is removed from office by impeachment, Kamala Harris becomes President. If she dies, resigns, or is removed from office by impeachment, Nancy Pelosi becomes President. That is the order of succession.
That scares at least half of the United States of America beyond belief, and likely at least half of the free world beyond belief. Just yesterday, in the Parliament of Great Britain, the speech of the day was that Europe no longer can rely on the United States of America.
We fear the Biden Presidency. We fear a Harris Presidency more. We fear a Pelosi Presidency most.
Our branded-as-racist Founding Fathers did not renounce King George III, with the hope or expectation of King Joe, Queen Kamala, or Queen Nancy. Yet, here we are.
Everyone knew that Joe Biden would not survive four years, and that America would not survive four years of Joe Biden. Joe Biden is hanging on by a thread, as is America. Yet, everyone fears the Queens who are waiting in the wings.
What happens if Joe Biden dies, resigns, or is removed from office by impeachment? We don’t know what to wish for. The alternatives instill fear beyond belief.
It is the morning of August 20, 2021. Today at 1:00 PM, Joe Biden is scheduled to give a speech. We don’t know who will write the words, but Joe Biden will say the words as if he understands them and means them, as if the words were true, as if the words were his. What words will he read to us? Let’s pause, let’s wait for the words.
We heard the words. We’ve heard the same words before. We’ll hear the same words again. Until we stop listening. Until we believe that Joe, Kamala, or Nancy is not the only future that is possible for us.
