‘All Roads Point to Joe Biden’

James Comer’s comments about the Biden Crime Family perfectly sum up the real issue.

Cognitively disabled deadbeat granddad Joe Biden should be removed from office for a number of reasons, but perhaps chief among them is his involvement in influence-peddling corruption with his son Hunter Biden. It always bears repeating that Hunter doesn’t matter; Joe does.

This isn’t a story about hookers and cocaine. It’s one of bribery, corruption, and abuse of power.

A boatload of news hit over the last couple of days, so we’ll try to cut through the clutter.

  • Impeachment rumblings

There have been a series of hearings related to the Biden Crime Family in recent weeks, as House Republicans piece together the clear connection between Hunter Biden’s lucrative consulting and Joe Biden’s position as Barack Obama’s vice president. Time after time, the influence of the “Big Guy” netted loads of cash for numerous Biden family shell companies — cash coming from Ukraine, Romania, and China. And Republicans are slowly but surely uncovering the trail.

All of it finally led House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to open the door to impeaching Joe Biden. “This is rising to the level of impeachment inquiry,” McCarthy said Tuesday night, “which provides Congress the strongest power to get the rest of the knowledge and information needed.” It is the first time he has shown real inclination to consider impeachment.

Many other Republicans have been there for a while. Marjorie Taylor Greene, for one, famously introduced articles of impeachment the day after Biden’s inauguration — before Ole Joe even realized he was sitting at the desk in the Oval Office. Now, Jim Jordan, Andy Biggs, Bob Good, Jim Banks, Claudia Tenney, Ralph Norman, and others are clamoring for impeachment.

“One thing I do know is if you head down this road, it completely consumes Congress,” Jordan cautioned, recalling the Democrats’ “ridiculous impeachment of President Trump.”

Some Senate Republicans threw cold water on the idea. “It’s getting to be a habit around here, isn’t it?” wondered John Cornyn. Todd Young said almost the same thing: “We’ve had a lot of those recently, haven’t we?”

That’s only true because of two sham impeachments of Donald Trump courtesy of Democrats.

Mitt Romney, the lone Republican to vote to convict Trump in both of those trials, somehow doesn’t think what Biden is alleged to have done is all that serious. “The bar [for impeachment] is high crimes and misdemeanors,” he said, “and that hasn’t been alleged at this stage.” Uh, yes it has. Bribery is literally listed in the Constitution regarding impeachable offenses. McCarthy specifically talked about Biden’s bribery yesterday.

Still, Romney says, “I certainly hope [impeachment is] not going to confront us again.” Someone needs to help the Utah senator figure out which way is up.

Besides Senate Republicans, the biggest obstacle to impeachment and removal is Kamala Harris. “I realize the replacement for Joe Biden is probably giggling somewhere now,” quipped Norman, “so she’s not an alternative.”

  • Joe Biden was “a lot more involved”

“When President Biden was running for office,” McCarthy said, “he told the American public that he’s never talked about business [with his son Hunter]. He said his family has never received a dollar from China, which we now prove is not true.”

In fact, the White House is running interference on that claim with a shifting story. “I’ve been asked this question a million times,” snapped White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre this week. “The answer is not going to change. The answer remains the same. The president was never in business with his son. I just don’t have anything else to add.”

That answer absolutely did change from Biden’s oft-repeated original claim that he had “never discussed” said business dealings. Why? Because both the original claim and the new shift are both lies.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer made that plain: “We already have bank records. We have emails. We have text messages. We have phone records. We have testimony from other people. So, we know a lot about what Joe Biden’s involvement was.” He added, “There’s evidence, through and through, that shows Joe Biden knew these people, he spent time with these people, and he communicated with these people.” In fact, “Joe Biden was a lot more involved in Hunter’s shady business games than he has ever admitted.”

How involved? Well, according to Hunter’s ex-partner Devon Archer, Joe Biden — then vice president and Obama’s point man for all things Ukraine — was put on the phone at least two dozen times as Hunter conducted various negotiations. Joe also allegedly met in person with Hunter’s associates. Archer is scheduled to testify before the House Oversight Committee on July 31.

Another of Hunter’s former partners, Tony Bobulinski, corroborates that “Joe would take phone calls from Hunter in the middle of business meetings and would weigh in via speakerphone.”

Ultimately, Comer laid down what amounts to the bottom line: “All roads point to Joe Biden.”

  • Hunter’s plea

Hunter Biden is in Delaware this morning pleading guilty to two lousy misdemeanor tax charges that were part of that outrageous sweetheart deal he got last month. He evaded federal taxes for two years on more than $1.5 million in income, which is normally a felony. Oops, but no jail time. The felony possession of a firearm after lying on a federal background check, the crime with a maximum 10-year sentence? Don’t worry about it.

Update: His plea deal appeared to fall apart this morning. We’ll keep an eye on developments.

Meanwhile, even Hunter’s attorneys are in trouble, facing possible sanctions for lying to a judicial clerk’s office. “A lawyer from Hunter’s legal team is accused of misrepresenting who she was when asking to remove amicus materials from the docket,” according to Fox News. “She allegedly called to ask the clerk to seal the information instead of making a formal request to the court.”

That “misrepresenting” was posing as a member of the legal team for the other side.

Hunter’s team responded: “The matter under consideration appears to stem from an unfortunate and unintentional miscommunication between a staff member at our firm and employees of the court. We have no idea how the misunderstanding occurred, but our understanding is there was no misrepresentation.”

No, we have no idea how a member of our firm misrepresented herself as opposing counsel.

  • Hunter’s art

Not to worry; “reasonable safeguards” will be put in place to ensure that selling Hunter Biden’s overpriced artwork won’t compromise Joe Biden. So the White House assured us.

Well, a funny thing happened on the way to the art show. Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali, a big-time Democrat donor, bought some of Hunter’s art and was soon thereafter appointed to the prestigious Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, and she’s visited the White House more than a dozen times in recent months.

Hunter has earned at least $1.3 million from his amateur art, and it seems as though it’s just another facet of the Biden family’s money-grubbing schemes.

  • Biden’s biting dog

Finally, just for kicks, Hunter isn’t the only one in need of a shorter leash.

The Associated Press reports that “Biden’s dog Commander bit or otherwise attacked Secret Service personnel at least 10 times between October 2022 and January, including one incident that required a hospital visit by the injured law enforcement officer.” Commander is a purebred German Shepherd, and he’s the second of Biden’s dogs to have a history of biting people.

Maybe they learned from Joe himself.

Frankly, the Biden Crime Family is totally out of control. Biting dogs, cocaine in the White House, and an influence-peddling scheme that would make Hillary Clinton envious. It’s long past time for the 80-year-old Biden to be put out to pasture.
