Presidential Line of Succession

 Two of President Biden's Cabinet members are naturalized citizens (Jennifer Granholm, Secretary of Energy, and Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security), making them ineligible to hold the office of U.S. president. Therefore, Biden's line of succession only has 16 members in it, instead of 18.

Tonight I am reading a post apocalytic world shortstory called Lariat Advance. It is not a world  award winner, but it is interesting enough for a saturday night.

This story has a nuclear attack in it, wherein the sitting president dies and is replaced by the Secretary of Veteran Affairs. I saw that and I thought that couldn't be right. 

But according to the article I linked to above that is indeed correct.

I didn't even know we HAD a secretary of veteran affairs. 

So I looked up the line of succession and let me tell you, this country is in pisspoor shape now with dementia joe and the ho. But if he dies and one of the idiots on that list replace him? We're gonna see a world of hurt to last 2 eternities. Dementia Joe is a flatout genius and 100% american compared to the REST of the people on that list.

God help us. No one else is going to.


  1. What keeps me awake at night is that Peloser is the third in line...

  2. And what, pray tell, was Obummer?

  3. He was a turd world finisher.

  4. If we even get to Veep, never mind getting any deeper into the Line of Succession, we have FAR bigger problems than who's a naturalized citizen.

    1. You are right about that. For some reason, blogger flagged your comment as spam. When I saw that I unflagged it. Blogger seems to be doing that to several of the comments.

  5. Decent story. I’d never heard of this forum. Seems almost perfect for my book “The Altered”. Posted first 2 chapters.
