Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Sunday suggested the states can overrule the US Constitution and ban Trump from the presidential ballot.
Pelosi appeared on ABC’s “This Week” to discuss Trump’s Colorado ballot appeal to the US Supreme Court with host George Stephanopoulos.
Last week President Trump asked the US Supreme Court to overturn the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to bar him from the 2024 ballot.
The Colorado Supreme Court last month disqualified Trump from the 2024 ballot.
On Friday the US Supreme Court agreed to hear oral arguments in the Colorado ballot case.
The legal theories are based on Section 3 of the US Constitution’s 14th Amendment which states public officials who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the US may be disqualified from public office.
Trump has not been charged with engaging in insurrection or rebellion against the United States.
The US Constitution has three requirements to be president:
- Be a natural-born citizen of the United States.
- Be at least 35 years old.
- Have been a resident of the United States for 14 years.
Nancy Pelosi however on Sunday said the states can overrule the US Constitution and ban Trump from the ballot.
Even George Stephanopoulos, a lifelong Democrat hack and Deep State asset was stunned by Pelosi’s suggestion.
“You believe [Trump] is ineligible to be president?” Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi referring to the 14th Amendment.
“They have different laws from state-to-state,” Pelosi said.
A stunned Stephanopoulos interrupted Pelosi and said, “It’s the Constitution…”
“That’s not the point,” Pelosi said as she explained that every state has different laws.
Did the CDC manipulate data to cover up a link between MMR vaccines and autism?
The 2016 movie ‘Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe’ was recently re-uploaded to Rumble and garnered significant attention again, likely since trust in both the CDC and vaccines in general has been diminishing since the COVID crisis.
With vaccine skepticism on the rise and trust in regulatory agencies and Big Pharma dwindling, it is time to re-visit one of the most important and most controversial potential cover-up cases of the past decades and answer the question: Did the CDC manipulate data to hide a link between MMR vaccines and autism?
The 2016 movie “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe” tells the story of CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, who revealed how the CDC allegedly destroyed evidence that shows that the MMR vaccine is linked to autism in children.
The movie was recently re-uploaded to Rumble and garnered significant attention again, likely since trust in both the CDC and vaccines in general has been diminishing since the COVID crisis.
The film was produced by filmmaker Del Bigtree and scientist Andrew Wakefield, a former academic who has been accused of fraud for his 1998 study published in the Lancet on the possible link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism, and has since been discredited as a “conspiracy theorist” and “anti-vaccine activist” by the mainstream media and the scientific establishment.
What are the claims of Dr. William Thompson?
Thompson has claimed that he and his co-authors intentionally omitted data from a 2004 study that shows a significant correlation between the MMR vaccine and autism in African-American children.
In 2014, Thompson had a series of phone calls with Dr. Brian Hooker, a biologist and former university professor who is currently the senior director of science and research at Children’s Health Defense, the environmental and vaccine safety advocacy group chaired by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (Kennedy is on leave from his role with the organization as he runs for president as an independent).
Thompson suggested that Hooker request the data from the CDC’s 2004 MMR-autism study through a so-called “citizen’s request.” Wakefield explained in the Vaxxed movie that Thompson used this method as a “legal loophole” because sending Hooker the CDC’s internal documents without such a request would have been illegal.
After Hooker had analyzed the data, he saw a significant correlation between the MMR vaccine and autism in black children, prompting him to publish his findings.
The CDC and the study authors were now threatened by media attention generated through Hooker’s publication. Furthermore, Hooker had secretly recorded his phone calls with Thompson, so he had evidence that the CDC scientist told him how to access the data.
This caused Thompson to go public and publish a statement on August 27, 2014, saying that he “regret[s] that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics.”
The number of reported cases of autism in children in the U.S. has risen exponentially over the past few decades. According to the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network, 1 in 36 children born in 2012 suffers from Autism Spectrum Disorder as of 2020. In 2000, it was “only” 1 in 150 children who suffered from autism, while studies from the 1960s and 1970s in Europe and the U.S. found significantly lower incidences of autism in children (around 2 to 4 cases per 10,000 children).
