    Great video as always Grey! Just a few parts that had me scratching my head… Is anybody able to provide clarification on the claim at 3:40 that, if Congress votes to sustain the VP’s declaration that the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office, that the VP becomes PERMANENT acting president? As far as I can see, the 25th Amendment makes no stipulation that the president is not able to make a subsequent declaration of fitness at a later date. And, would we not expect this to be the case, for example, in situations where the president has suffered and subsequently recovered from a temporary period of mental incapacity? And, on the comments around 4:30, I’m not so sure this is unclear. The Amendment specifies that: “Whenever the Vice President AND a majority of EITHER the principal officers of the executive departments OR of such other body as Congress may by law provide…” For me, I think it is quite clear that the declaration must be made by either (1) the VP AND a majority of the cabinet OR (2) the VP AND a majority of the referenced Congressional committee. I'm struggling to see how this could be interpreted otherwise... Thoughts?

    Hey Grey I've been wondering on the answers to some questions I'd like to see you make a video about: Why are cigarettes not illegal? What happens to all your accounts when you die? When are you consider officially dead in society? What would happen if no one owned land? How do you become Secretary of Defense? What would happen if soldiers/warriors didn't fight wars? As in if people just straight up said no and never used their lives to play chess.....? For rewards that benefit others?

    Mr. Grey, I have a question. What is your opinion on airplanes? Are they way too bad for our environment for us to use them for unnecessary things, like a meeting you could do virtually (however convenient it is)? Or are they totally fine even if our climate crisis more dire than ever? This is not a personal attack on how much you use airplanes ( I think that you use them for all the right purposes) but I do want to know what trade off you would have to make and at what point it would be necessary to fly a plane. Thank you!!

    400$ million insurances they never give four cents they rather lose 400$ million than say this victim was right and they were wrong. Where the money flows souls flow on that directions and if that direction is wrong they go to the wide gate that leads to destruction. But if they go towards the tiger the fiver flows on the seas and they all become fresh water huh 🤔 Going and eating on the seas there will never be fresh water there they be waiting forever and ever without fresh water. That’s why scripture says what he closes no one can open ever again water that is never fresh water. Salt pits that souls will be dying of thirst try drink salt water when you thirsty see wheat happens how you start to burn in flames 🔥 Halloween party for losers Hebrews 6::8 But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned. Jesus would not have said IAM thirsty if there was there something to drink in Egypt 🇪🇬 Only Jesus could endure such agony of death and be resurrected again without water. Acts 2:24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. On third day he rises again that is to say 2000 years had to pass in a natural time. That’s why all apostles are on earth sleep walking as of 2020 AD That same Paul that is sleep walking in new city called them mutilators of flesh what did they do to him how much money he got from insurance huh 🤔 666$ a month with satanic psychopath psychiatrist operating his neck so many times. And they all said this person went out of his mind they call him crazy huh 🤔 Why is LYDIA SARA MARIA on earth sleep walking also huh 🤔 Jesus was same thing walking at Solomon colonnade and he hid changed space time they could not see him anymore and was in front of them but on a different timing they could not recognize him anymore. Proof Daniel 2 He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. Notice Jesus does not change laws huh 🤔 See this is different the one who tries to change times and laws huh 🤔 Daniel 7 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. Psalm 49:19 they will join those who have gone before them, who will never again see the light of life. 20People who have wealth but lack understanding are like the beasts that perish. Revelation 14:20 They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses' bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia.

    @AnnaEmilka "Like". There's a lot of popes, something like 260. In the long-ago, 5 definitely resigned, 5 allegedly resigned. Then there's Benedict XVI (formerly Pope Benedict XVI (formerly Cardinal Ratzinger)) and Pope Francis (for now). 95% is a pretty big number, especially compared to stuff like Supreme Court Justices and definitely POTUS. A quick aside: it wasn't until 10 minutes ago that I found out Benedict XVI still goes by Benedict XVI instead of going back to Josef Ratzinger. Guess I heard otherwise back in 2013 and didn't think to fact-check until today. Still walks around lookin all pope-y too. Kinda weird, if I'm being honest.

    The two people from Congress should be removed from this list or put at the bottom. That's the Legislative Branch. Succession of the Executive should be exclusive to the Executive Branch.
