If the president becomes incapacitated, what happens next? | Just The FAQs 1


If the president dies or is unable to continue their duties, what's next? The 25th amendment lays out the rules and line of succession.

WASHINGTON – Since President Donald Trump disclosed early Friday that he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for the coronavirus, White House officials have sought to assure the country that the president remains well enough to discharge his duties even as he was readied for transfer to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

If Trump's condition worsens, leaving the 74-year-old commander-in-chief incapacitated, the Constitution provides for a line of authority to steer the government in his absence.

Under the 25th Amendment, the president could notify House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and the Senate majority's senior member, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, that he is unable to function, transferring power to Vice President Mike Pence until the president indicates that he is able to return.

    The SECRET of ALL Secret Societies

    The Third Eye. The Pyramids.

    The Third Eye = Telepaths, psychics. Nearly half of the global population is telepathic/psychic. Referred to in the modern day, as ‘Awakening/Opening the Third Eye’, telepaths/psychics aren’t permitted to disclose much information to those who are not awake/aware i.e. telepathic/psychic. There are rules. There is a policing force also made of secret societies.

    The Pyramids = Ancient Pyramids of Egypt. Regarded as mysterious, with questions remaining to present day as to the purpose of their construction, answers are kept hidden within secret societies and the minds of telepaths. Revealed to only those who awaken their third eye and become telepathic, is the marvel of electricity existing in ancient times. Concepts of Free Energy are originally derived from the ancient pyramids, known for producing free electricity in mass volumes, instantaneously. This secret along with the actual methods that were used and needed to produce free energy are kept secret by half the world and regulated by secret societies. The pyramids were turned OFF a long time ago, they can be turned ON today if the secret and hidden powers to be wanted the world to have free energy.

    How? Electrical components, Inductors and Transformers (coils), do not transfer electricity but actually create free electricity. Solar energy fed back into an inductor or transformer, can create unlimited electricity instantaneously. Norms (non-telepaths), are often discouraged and confused when attempting to study electrical engineering or physics due to the false assertion of Electrons. There are no such thing as electrons, they are taught only to confuse norms so they don’t figure out the solution to the worlds energy problems.

    There is a reason why the cartoon ‘Transformers’ was created, along with the lyric in it’s theme song, “Transformers – More Than Meets The Eye.”
