The Morning Report — 7/27/23


Good morning, kids. Whatever happens going forward with the exposure of the Biden Crime Family's massive, generational corruption, to the extent the propaganda mills can spin the narrative now that it's out in the open, you have to give pretty big props to Judge Maryellen Noreika for tossing the nakedly corrupt plea deal given to the bastard-making bastard of Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants. Of course, the usual gang of hack Lefties will shriek that she was a Trump appointee, ignoring the fact that she was confirmed with a bipartisan vote in the Senate, including the two Democrat tits from Delaware. You know, the same state where the Bidens have their bunker.

The nixing of the plea deal not only opens Hunter up for prosecution (to the extent that the result will not be the same as said plea deal) but combined with the damning IRS whistleblower testimony implicates beyond any reasonable doubt that "the Big Guy" who is referenced hundreds of times in text messages, e-mails and eyewitness testimony is none other than the gibbering sundowning vegetable of a fraud "president" currently taking a wrecking ball to what's left of the nation.

With the gravity and sheer volume of the charges including influence peddling and even extortion to the tune of millions, including to some of the worst international regimes and actors – and worst of all, even confirmation of heavy smoke if not the raging inferno that Joey is indeed in the pocket of the Chi-Coms – impeachment is certainly on the table. At least it should be.

As we all know, the Democrats slam and slime Republicans and conservatives with false charges on a regular basis. And with a throughly corrupt DOJ and criminal justice system acting as a de facto Stasi/Gestapo and '33-'45 era Volksgericht, it amounts to political persecution. Here, as in the past, the GOPe is in the position to do its duty by leveling legitimate charges at an abject amoral perverted criminal whose high crimes and misdemeanors are a red-pubic hair's breadth away from being considered traitorous. But what has the GOPe done in these kind of situations? Backed down with a harrumph and a complaint that to do their duty would violate comity, or some such rot. If past is prologue, expect them to give the moral equivalent of a "no reasonable prosecutor" excuse.

And yet, Frank Luntz's cabana boy seems to be making the right noises. We shall see. In any case, even if it goes forward, and even if he is impeached, the odds of Biden being convicted and removed are non-existent given the makeup of the Senate, the Machiavellian maneuverings of the Kalorama and Chappaqua factions of the Party notwithstanding.

But Ben Weingarten at Real Clear Investigations says it must go forward all the same.

Little could be more dangerous than for our commander-in-chief to be corrupted and compromised by foreign powers, including our worst enemies. There is growing evidence [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Joe Biden just may be such a corrupted and compromised figure. So if House Republicans launch an impeachment inquiry into the uniquely grave offenses in which Biden has been implicated, they will be doing so on uniquely justified grounds. Certainly, Congresses impeached Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump for far less.

It is now well established that the Biden family, led by apparent bagman Hunter, has collected millions of dollars through business dealings with parties ranging from Chinese Communist Party-linked individuals and entities to corrupt Ukrainian concerns. Much of the money rolled in while Joe Biden was vice president and overseeing policy in these locales. None of the Bidens had any real experience or expertise in international business dealings — certainly not the spouses, girlfriends and even the grandchild to whom funds flowed. The money funneled through a complex web of shell companies, often in smaller dollar increments, seemingly aimed at concealing its source and skirting scrutiny.

There is a credible allegation that Joe and Hunter Biden each received $5 million bribes from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. The Justice Department is alleged to have concealed the document memorializing these claims from IRS investigators pursuing the president’s son. The Biden FBI kept the document from congressional investigators up until the point Director Christopher Wray faced a contempt proceeding. The Hunter Biden “tax probe” that whistleblowers say the Justice Department obstructed — including by refusing to pursue leads pointing to Joe — produced charges that US attorneys the president appointed would not allow Delaware US Attorney David Weiss to bring.

Either Weiss or Biden-appointed Attorney General Merrick Garland seems to be dissembling about what authority Weiss — who Garland neglected to replace with a special counsel — had. The IRS whistleblowers were thrown off the case in apparent reprisal for having come forward to expose wrongdoing. Prosecutors agreed to a sweetheart plea deal with Hunter Biden only for it to be scuttled Wednesday by federal Judge Maryellen Noreika. The [so-called quote-unquote "president's"] subordinates, in shielding his son from facing additional, more serious charges, have in effect protected the Biden family business from scrutiny. An international influence-peddling operation only existed because of Joe Biden.

Without his power, there would have been nothing for his family to sell. That we know almost nothing about the services its members rendered is only further evidence of it. Biden has repeatedly denied knowledge about the family business, despite mounting evidence, likely to be augmented should Hunter Biden’s former business partner Devon Archer testify before Congress, that he participated in related meetings.

An impeachment inquiry, which would arm House Republicans with the most awesome investigative powers possible, would reveal what the Bidens earned, from whom, for what, what the president knew, when he knew it, what he did about it, if and how he benefited and whether he has lied about it all.

It would also allow Congress to assess whether and to what extent his family’s dealings have influenced his policies — that is, whether he is acting in America’s self-interest or his own. At its most extreme, the president’s conduct could include bribery and/or rise to the level of treason, the only two specific impeachable offenses laid out in the Constitution.

Contrast this with the last three impeachments, brought on various offenses Congress deemed “high crimes and misdemeanors.” President Clinton faced articles of impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice charges in connection with the Paula Jones sexual-harassment lawsuit and his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. President Trump was impeached first for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress connected to his withholding of foreign aid to Ukraine — an impeachment in effect covering up the Biden family’s business dealings there brought because of a dispute subordinates had with Trump over his foreign policy. In Trump’s second impeachment, he faced one article for inciting an insurrection in connection with the Capitol riot. Democrats would likely try to put Jan. 6 on par with Biden’s worst possible acts. But could a president “incite” by telling rallygoers to march “peacefully and patriotically”? And how serious was this impeachment when Trump was already out the door before it finished?

Impeachment is a political remedy for which House Republicans will have to weigh all costs and benefits.

But on its own merits and based on historical precedent, the gravity of Joe Biden’s alleged misconduct more than justifies it.

It's a shame that we have reached a point where things like impeachment have become more or less meaningless kabuki theater, devolving from the solemn act it was envisioned as. Worse is that shameless criminal hucksters, liars, thugs and perverts like the Bidens were able to rise to the positions they did, because of the incuriosity of those who voted for him time and time again for over 50 years (election rigging notwithstanding). But, here it is and here we are.

We as a people have been brought to the point of no longer being "the moral and religious people" John Adams declared our Constitution was suited to. At least, not those in power and those who have put them in power lo these many years and even decades.

What comes next is indeed the $100 trillion dollar-plus question.
