The Coming Impeachment of Biden and Harris

NOTE TO MY FRIENDS: I realize this topic is controversial and not all of us will agree. I want you to know I respect all your opinions regardless if I agree or not. I appreciate you all and your thoughts. Thank you.

Many Republicans are against impeachment. Not the Republicans in Congress or the Senate, the ones that walk our streets and sit behind their laptops. It amazes me how some of the most intelligent people cannot see the harm that both Biden and Harris have done and will continue to do. What has to happen a nuclear war? WWlll? What?

“On Day One in Congress, I’ll file Articles of Impeachment against both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for betrayal of public trust,” Jones tweeted.

“Then I’ll cast my vote for President Trump to be Speaker and invite my colleagues to join me. It’s time to throw out the old playbook,” he added.

According to the order of presidential succession, if both the president and vice president were removed from office, the speaker of the House would then become president.

Jones is not alone in expressing a willingness to bring articles of impeachment against Biden. Both Representatives Lauren Boebert of Colorado’s 3rd district and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia’s 14th district have introduced articles of impeachment.” (Source)

There is a petition to impeach Biden and Harris. I have already signed it. I hope you all will reconsider (to those that are against impeachment). Back in September 2021, Rep. Lauren Boebert introduced Articles of Impeachment Against Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

H.Res.57 – Impeaching Joseph R. Biden, President of the United States, for abuse of power by enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors was introduced by Margorie Taylor Greene. The House on March 3, 2022, referred this to the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties.

Impeachment is eminent …

“Introduced in House (01/21/2021)

This resolution impeaches President Joseph Robinette Biden for abuse of power by enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Specifically, the resolution sets forth an article of impeachment stating that, in his former role as Vice President, President Biden abused the power of that office through enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors by allowing his son Hunter Biden to influence the domestic policy of a foreign nation and accept benefits from foreign nationals in exchange for favors.

The article states that, by such conduct, President Biden

  • endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government;
  • threatened the integrity of the democratic system;
  • interfered with the peaceful transition of power;
  • imperiled a coordinate branch of government; and
  • demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office.

The article also states that this conduct warrants immediate impeachment, trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.” (Source)

ArtII.S4.1.2.1 Offices Eligible for Impeachment lays out the offices eligible for impeachment. “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” Continued here. There is precedent to impeach both Biden and Harris.

“Presidential succession is something that has remained relatively consistent since the ratification of the Constitution. Succession is described in Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 of the Constitution. If the president and vice president were to be removed from office, “Congress may by Law… declaring what Officer shall then act as President.” Here is the nugget of truth to the “President Trump will get to be President again” theory. If Joe Biden and Kamala Harris defrauded the American electoral system that would be a crime. Crimes are impeachable offenses and they could both be removed from office. Congress could pass a law establishing the next President of the United States. While presidential succession was revised by the 25th Amendment in the late 1960s, that part of succession has remained constant. Congress has the ultimate authority to outline how succession works once we get past the vice president. So, if both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were removed from office then Congress has the authority to select the “Officer” who shall act as president.

To be clear though … Congress has already done this. Congress defined succession by law in the Presidential Succession Act of 1947. The person who finished second does not automatically assume the presidency under this law. If they did then George McGovern would have been made the president after the Watergate scandal. After the presidency passes to the vice president it then goes to the Speaker of the House. After the Speaker it then goes to the President Pro Tempore of the Senate. It then it begins to make its way through the president’s Cabinet chronologically in the order that the Cabinet positions were established. None of these are jobs currently held by former President Trump. The Speaker of the House is Nancy Pelosi, and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate is Patrick Leahy.” (Source)

Biden campaigned on “building back better.” The reality is that nothing has been better since he and Harris took office. In fact, they and their team of Obama Administration holdovers are actively working against the interests of the nation. For their dereliction of duty in the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, their total capitulation to China and other adversaries, their calamitous open border policies, their disastrous fiscal policies, their servitude to the radical liberal left, and their utter failure to lead the nation, Biden and Harris should resign – if not – then impeachment is imminent and necessary.

Should worse come to worse and they do not resign, and impeachment becomes not feasible, there is the 25th Amendment that is a separate process from impeachment, which allows Congress to remove a sitting president if a majority of the House of Representatives votes that he has committed treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, and a trial in the Senate convicts him, which will not be hard to prove. It is evident to all of America that this is a failed administration.

  1. Hard pass.

    I didn’t support the flimsy foundations behind Trump’s impeachments (or Clinton’s), and don’t support the same with regard to Biden. The impeachment process has been perverted beyond it’s original intent. If it’s merely used as a cudgel for disagreements of policy, each successive Administration will become a target for the same…..and make even more of a joke of our political landscape, than it currently is.

    And while I think the Right is going to be disappointed in the first matter, I don’t at all oppose investigations into potential crimes and abuse of Presidential power for personal gains by Hunter Biden, or Jared & Ivanka Trump.

    1. I partially agree with you. I believe that Biden/Harris needs to be investigated. I do not believe we have had such an incompetent administration since Jimmy Carter and even he looks good right now compared to the lot of them. They are dangerous because of their absolute ignorance and for the sake of our nation, they both must be impeached and be put out.

      1. Ok. But the justification you cite, is generic enough to allow the Democrats to use the exact same reasoning, to try to impeach the next Republican POTUS.

        Now, if both parties want to simply use their time to engage in a circular firing squad of successive impeachments…….which will take their attention away from passing more taxation and regulation……I could sign on to that.

        1. Well we do agree on that. I also believe that should the Republicans sweep the House and Senate this fall and hold it through the next election we could avoid future impeachments. I do not like impeachment, it becomes a dog and pony show however allowing these two ignorant people that have hurt not helped America remain another two years would be disastrous.

  2. Impeachment is Part I of a two-part legal remedy to the problem of corrupt officials. Impeachment is no more/no less than an “indictment,” which means that (if passed in the House) a majority of House Members believe there is probable cause to proceed to trial (in the U.S. Senate). In this sense, ranking members of the U.S. House of Representatives become the prosecutors of the impeached official. At the presidential level, there have been five impeachment proceedings since 1868: Andrew Johnson (1968), Richard Nixon (1973), Bill Clinton (1998), and Donald Trump (2019 and 2021). There have been no convictions in the U.S. Senate.

    The source of this process is Article II, Section 4, U.S. Constitution, which states, “The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” In law, there is no such thing as a high crime. It merely serves as word art to suggest that elected officials (the high and mighty) have a special duty, given their relative positions in government, to obey and faithfully execute the law. The U.S. inherited this phrase from British Common Law. We know this because Chief Justice John Marshall told us so in 1807.

    Impeachment is used so frequently (since 1973) that it has lost its impact — in the law — and become more of a political perversion (which most voting Americans of both parties reject) because it not only calls into question the conduct of officials, but it also questions the wisdom of the people who elected them. This is all fine and dandy if the purpose of impeachment is sleazy politics, but it is not acceptable if one is seeking justice against actual corruption. Crying wolf in the absence of a wolf never protected the village. I also want to say that I have never been impressed with the cognitive ability of the U.S. House. They are a clown show. I have wondered (mostly to myself) after all the kerfuffle associated with Benghazi why the U.S. House didn’t impeach Hillary Clinton while serving as Secretary of State. No, the House wanted to recreate the O.J. trial for its entertainment value.

    Impeach, impeach, impeach … and then what? Do you honestly think the U.S. Senate (controlled by Democrats) will convict Joe Biden — of anything? The Senate would not convict Joe even if he appeared on camera stabbing his wife to death with a kitchen knife. Beyond this, who replaces Joe Biden? Really? Do you want to go there? Let me rephrase the question: you want to impeach a sitting president on the strength of Boebert and Greene — and replace him with Harris?

    I think Biden must be ranked “down there” with the worst presidents ever in U.S. history. This country is suffering under Biden as few Americans ever previously suffered. What that is, however, is what happens when people choose their president “unwisely.” Elections do have consequences. Impeachment is not a do-over. Impeachment is a judicial proceeding, and the standards and precedents for implementing it must remain dear. For example, it should never happen if the Senate is unlikely to convict.

    Here’s a clue, though: Joe Biden is no longer serving as Vice President. Impeaching Biden, alleging violations of law while he was Vice President is not altogether unlike impeaching Trump after he is no longer President (2021). So, while you may be disappointed with my opinion in this matter, I do line up next to CI … I will support impeachment when it is judicially warranted and only when it is clear that serious (provable) crimes have been committed and that a sitting president or another official can be shown to have committed them. Meanwhile, we should all understand this as fair-minded Americans: no president will ever get a” fair and impartial trial” in the U.S. Senate.

    1. Mustang… a couple of corrections. President Nixon was not impeached. He resigned before that could happen after members of his own party, including staunch conservative Barry Goldwater, told him it was imminent and that there were enough votes in the Senate to convict him.

      Clinton was the first president impeached since Jackson. On two issues, perjury and obstruction of justice. The perjury charge was split in the Senate completely along party lines, with then House member Lindsey Graham arguing that even if Clinton was not convicted, the US Congress and the Senate had to stand up for the rule of law. The obstruction charge was also split, but 5 Dems switched sides and voted to convict.

      I wrote then, and still believe today, that Clinton should have resigned as his actions had disgraced the office of the presidency.

      My general thoughts as it relates to impeachment is that it should be reserved for truly serious stuff. As such, at least in my opinion, the Nixon impeachment would have qualified. Clinton, no, Trump I, no and Trump II, yes.

      In a “normal” political environment, I believe Trump would have been convicted in that second go round.

  5. Folks, and I’m sure we are going to disagree, but you need a crime, or something really specific, to impeach a president. You can’t just, at least I hope, impeach a president because you don’t like his, or her politics.

    So what is the specific charge, that rises to the level of a “High Crime of Misdemeanor”?

    Now, I assume you can come up with something, but the Trump defense, as annunciated by his impeachment lawyers, and which the GOP used to defend him and then affirmed when the voted against his impeachment, was that any action taken by a president in the furtherance of his job, as he defines it, is not subject to review and/or impeachment.

    That was the Republican argument.

    So how do you get around it?

    The simple fact that the Dems did it will not suffice as they argued that this was not a legit defense.

    So from a conservative/republican perspective, what do you do?

      1. You don’t like Trump stating the quiet part out loud… the obskene part [The name “Obskené” refers to “obscene”, a word whose Greek root means “off” (ob-) “stage” (-skene). The Obskené company shows on stage what was formerly hidden behind the rear curtain, seeking to present “obscene”, shameless creativity.]?

        So what is divine violence? Its place can be defined in a very precise formal way. Badiou already elaborated the constitutive excess of representation over the represented: at the level of the Law, the state Power only represents the interests, etc. of its subjects; it is serving them, responsible to them, and itself subjected to their control; however, at the level of the superego underside, the public message of responsibility etc., is supplemented by the obscene message of unconditional exercise of Power: laws do not really bind me, I can do to you WHATEVER I WANT, I can treat you as guilty if I decide to do so, I can destroy you if I say so … This obscene excess is a necessary constituent of the notion of sovereignty —the asymmetry is here structural, i.e., the law can only sustain its authority if subjects hear in it an echo of the obscene unconditional self-assertion. And the people’s “divine violence” is correlative to this excess of power: it is its counterpart—it targets this excess and undermines it.

      1. The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway.
        The effort to remove duly elected President Donald Trump dates back to the day he was inaugurated, first announced in a Washington Post article dated January 20, 2017 titled, “The Campaign to Impeach President Trump Has Begun” and it included a video of six protesters at the inauguration hoisting a “Resist” banner.

        The Post reported on the start of what has been an almost constant effort to take Trump down by the left:

        At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org, spearheaded by two liberal advocacy groups aiming to lay the groundwork for his eventual ejection from the White House.

        The organizers behind the campaign, Free Speech for People and RootsAction, are hinging their case on Trump’s insistence on maintaining ownership of his luxury hotel and golf course business while in office. Ethics experts have warned that his financial holdings could potentially lead to constitutional violations and undermine public faith in his decision-making.

        The Women’s March followed the next day, and it took only about four months for Democrats to join the impeachment effort, as reported in retrospect by Buzz Feed News.

        In May of 2017, Texas Rep. Al Green became the first Democrat in Congress to support impeaching President Donald Trump,” Buzz Feed reported. “Trump had, at the time, been in office for just four months.”

        Green told BuzzFeed News last week:

        My prayer is that the Senate will take the articles seriously, that the President will be found guilty, and he’ll be removed from office, but if he isn’t, the constitution allows for additional articles of impeachment to be filed. If the president commits impeachable offenses, the president can be impeached more than once … so if the Senate doesn’t do its job and the President commits impeachable acts, he can still be impeached, and he can be impeached for impeachable acts that he’s already perpetrated that were not a part of this impeachment.

        1. Trump lies at the source of Democrat’s secular religion….

          Since the mimetic rivalry that develops from the struggle for the possession of the objects is contagious, it leads to the threat of violence. Girard himself says, “If there is a normal order in societies, it must be the fruit of an anterior crisis.” Turning his interest towards the anthropological domain, Girard began to study anthropological literature and proposed his second great hypothesis:

          the scapegoat mechanism, which is at the origin of archaic religion and which he sets forth in his second book Violence and the Sacred (1972), a work on fundamental anthropology.

          If two individuals desire the same thing, there will soon be a third, then a fourth. This process quickly snowballs. Since from the beginning desire is aroused by the other (and not by the object) the object is soon forgotten and the mimetic conflict transforms into a general antagonism. At this stage of the crisis the antagonists will no longer imitate each other’s desires for an object, but each other’s antagonism. They wanted to share the same object, but now they want to destroy the same enemy. So, a paroxysm of violence would tend to focus on an arbitrary victim and a unanimous antipathy would, mimetically, grow against him. The brutal elimination of the victim would reduce the appetite for violence that possessed everyone a moment before, and leaves the group suddenly appeased and calm. The victim lies before the group, appearing simultaneously as the origin of the crisis and as the one responsible for this miracle of renewed peace. He becomes sacred, that is to say the bearer of the prodigious power of defusing the crisis and bringing peace back. Girard believes this to be the genesis of archaic religion, of ritual sacrifice as the repetition of the original event, of myth as an account of this event, of the taboos that forbid access to all the objects at the origin of the rivalries that degenerated into this absolutely traumatizing crisis. This religious elaboration takes place gradually over the course of the repetition of the mimetic crises whose resolution brings only a temporary peace. The elaboration of the rites and of the taboos constitutes a kind of empirical knowledge about violence.

  6. I think a LOT of Republicans are afraid of a Biden impeachment BECAUSE of who’s NEXT IN LINE!…as you said; Harris, then…………..(YIKES!) PELOSI!?
    Biden is destroying us…..there can be no doubt about that. I understand the ‘circular firing squad’ argument; I’m personally SICK of nastiness and hate in government (please nobody tell me it’s always been there….NOT to this degree…not since Obama and Trump) AND please let’s investigate Trump…I’d prefer a president who did something to fatten his wallet (which I doubt) over a president intent on taking our country down a very dark path…and BROKE to boot. The best and worst things about Trump (and I despise the worst thing I’m going to mention) is HIS EGO. He is insufferable about how GREAT he is, and yet, that ego was one which I believe said “I love this country and nothing bad is going to happen on MY watch because i’d be humiliated.”
