It’s Monday morning, January 25, 2021. President Joe Biden conducts a White House meeting with his top advisers to begin putting in place his senior administration officials. A group of handpicked media members is in the room to see and hear the first few moments of the meeting before being dismissed from the room.
President Biden began the meeting by saying, “I felt it necessary to get started with our agenda to quickly address legislative and executive actions we must take immediately. Reversal of several of Trump’s executive orders is critical while our proposals to repair our immigration system and repeal Trump’s onerous tax bill are being prepared right now to be submitted in the House.”
The President then directly addressed the media in the room: “You all know Valarie Jarrett and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT). These two will be playing pivotal roles in the forming of my Administration. They have agreed to join my staff that has been working on this process since the election. We must finalize our cabinet and get it quickly in place. I have commitments from both House Speaker Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Schumer (D- NY) to clear their calendars so they can assist the White House to jumpstart our legislative agenda. We have no time to waste.”
The President nodded toward the end of the conference table opposite him and said, “Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), and former Attorney General Eric Holder are with us today.” He continued, “Secretary Clinton graciously volunteered to re-assume her role as Secretary of State. Rep. Schiff, who did such a masterful job in the Trump impeachment process, will be my nominee to serve as Attorney General. I have already appointed former A.G. Eric Holder as my Chief of Staff. He will launch a search immediately to find a replacement for former Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg after her untimely death in December.”
President Biden dismissed the press and started “part 2” of his first staff meeting with this: “Donald Trump tried to take our Democratic process down the tubes in his time here in the White House. He denigrated many of our representatives and those who have given their lives to serve in the federal government. Their efforts have been to develop and implement all necessary systems to not only preserve our government but to move it back to where — under President Obama and me — the government had trust and credibility.” Mr. Biden then looked to Secretary Clinton and said, “None of this would be necessary if the framers of the Constitution envisioned the changes that were inevitable as our country grew. If the electoral college did not thwart the will of a majority of Americans in 2016, I would be following President Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump.” He ended with this: “We must fix that problem.“
Could This Happen?
As crazy as it may seem, it’s not as far-fetched as many Republicans think. Don’t be lulled to sleep: Democrats will not stop short of removing ANY Republican president with NO regard for a voting majority of American voters who say otherwise.
“Suppose” this might happen in November 2020. What would the weeks and months after the hypothetical above-referenced White House meeting look like?
It is uncontroverted that it is a certainty in such a case, Democrats would dismantle everything that has been labeled by Americans as “good” implemented during the Donald Trump presidency. Dems would begin to systematically convert our heretofore Representative Republic into a real Socialist nation. Remember: Barack Obama famously stated he was about leading America to “fundamental change in America.” What could be more “fundamental” change than a hard slide to the hard left?
The Case for Impeachment
Wait a minute. Aren’t we through with impeachment? The Senate is set to on Wednesday vote for what seems inevitable will be the acquittal of President Trump. Isn’t impeachment at a dead stop and negated because of the Senate trial that failed?
President Trump WAS impeached. The Senate trial DID exonerate him. But as long as a single Democrat is remaining that breathes American air; impeachment will always be a part of that air that searches 24/7 for impeachment possibilities for any and every future Republican president’s term in office.
But in the case described above, Democrat Joe Biden will be President. How does impeachment play into that scenario?
Pay close attention to what you are about to see and hear. Impeachment ain’t over! But it may NOT be what you think.
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) has warned that former Vice President Joe Biden could immediately face calls for impeachment if elected president.
The first-term Republican went on the offense in an interview on Sunday, saying Biden’s prior dealings with Ukraine puts a target on his back.
“I think this door of impeachable whatever has been opened,” she said. “Joe Biden should be cautious what he’s asking for because, you know, we can have a situation where if it should ever be President Biden, that immediately, people, right the day after he would be elected would be saying, ‘Well, we’re going to impeach him.’”
Ernst accused Biden of interfering in an investigation into the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. She said then-President Barack Obama tasked Biden with weeding out corruption, but that Biden ignored “Burisma because his son was on the company’s board making over a million dollars a year.”
Sen. Ernst is not alone with those feelings about a possible Biden impeachment. Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert argued the same Biden impeachment possibility as did Sen. Ernst. Gohmert said that Republicans in the House are ready to impeach Biden if he becomes president.
“We’ve had people already mention the next president, Joe Biden. He may be the next president,” Gohmert said. “Well, we’ve already got the forms, all we have to do is eliminate Donald Trump’s name and put Joe Biden’s name in there because he’s on video.” Gohmert continued, “He and his son. He has admitted to the crime that’s being hoisted on the president improperly.”
WOW! How crazy would that be? How ridiculous would that be? How LIKELY would it be for something like this to happen?
Answer: conventional wisdom is that in the wake of the “faux-factual” impeachment case created by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff, it is a virtual certainty that on February 5, 2020, the Senate will vote to acquit President Trump of the impeachment charges made against him. Few Americans will be surprised if further dirt that includes allegations from “unnamed sources” or “anonymous” sources, or even foreign potentates suddenly appear in the public arena of media madness before the 2020 elections. God knows Democrats will undoubtedly try to pin something or many things on President Trump to sway the votes of Americans in the Fall.
There are two specific things that must happen before the 2020 Election Day for there to be a real discussion about these “What-ifs:” Joe Biden would have to win the Democrat Party nomination for President, and Americans would have to elect Joe Biden over Donald Trump.
But it doesn’t stop there: a third thing would have to be put in place to clear a way for a possible President Biden impeachment. The next House of Representatives would have to jump a hurdle sure to be set on the track by Democrats. Joe Biden’s impeachable offenses occurred before he became President. The most apparent impeachable crime — “Bribery” — (“alleged” bribery) happened when Biden was Vice President during the Obama Administration. (Actually, the act in question could be considered under U.S. criminal law as blackmail. But that’s a discussion for another day.)
The bribery, of course, was Biden’s demand for Ukraine’s former President to fire the prosecutor who was investigating Burisma and VP Biden’s son Hunter Biden. Biden gave President Petro Poroshenko six hours to fire that prosecutor or Ukraine would not receive the $1 billion in loan guarantees from the U.S. Poroshenko fired the prosecutor, and Ukraine got their $1 billion.
Lest we forget:
“If” Biden was to win the Democrat Party 2020 primaries, and, “if” Biden were to defeat President Trump in the November 2020 general election, and “if” Republicans retake the majority in the House of Representatives, the “Impeach Biden” mantra will undoubtedly reach a fever pitch — QUICKLY!
Impeach him for what? “Bribery.”
Article II, Section 4: “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.”
We heard the whisper of bribery as a possible charge against President Trump in the House articles of impeachment. Democrats used the word bribery for a short while. Then, someone in the DNC got wise and looked up bribery’s definition: “the act of paying or receiving, or of agreeing to pay or receive, a reward other than legal compensation for the exercise of official or delegated power irrespective of the dictates of duty.”
Joe Biden used bribery as described in the “reward” section of the definition. Joe committed a REAL quid pro quo. And in his, there was a “quid,” AND there was a “pro!” Uncle Joe demanded the prosecutor which was investigating his son fired. If the firing occurred within six hours, the VP would see to it the U.S. government would send $ 1 billion in loan guarantees.
Let me be clear: I certainly am NOT hoping the above scenario plays itself out. I doubt those necessary elements for this to happen will materialize. Therefore, I doubt there would ever be a President Joe Biden impeachment.
So why did we present that possible impeachment scenario of a President Joe Biden?
It’s the sole purpose our forefathers demanded that Americans for all of America’s future use the impeachment of a president only as a last resort. Alexander Hamilton weighed-in:
“Impeachment will seldom fail to agitate the passions of the whole community, and to divide it into parties more or less friendly or inimical to the accused. In many cases it will connect itself with the pre-existing factions, and will enlist all their animosities, partialities, influence, and interest on one side or on the other. In such cases there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.”
Don’t you get it? Even discussing this as a possible scenario going forward is precisely what Hamilton referred to in his warning. The impeachment of Donald Trump should have happened ONLY AS A LAST RESORT. Rep. Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi rushed into impeachment as nothing more than a political ploy to interrupt and possibly end a Trump presidency.
The results of their impeachment efforts? America is dramatically more divided than ever before in my 66 years. There is so much partisanship in everyday actions in government that it is doubtful anything meaningful will be accomplished in Congress until all three U.S. Government political entities fly the banner of one party and one only. Unless it’s all-Democrat or all-Republican, the peoples’ business will never be finalized in any area. Government and, therefore, its people will be continually divided in a partisan America.
Do you know what’s ironic? Democrats used as one of their justifications for impeaching Trump is how divided he makes America. The truth is, in the constant Mainstream Media buildup to impeachment during the 2016 campaign and subsequent two years of a Trump presidency, the most significant political divide along party lines in U.S. history swelled to monstrous proportions. And the only government operations seem to be those necessary just to keep that monster alive!
