There are news accounts out there that Republicans may lose the Senate and that it is likely that the Democrats will hold onto the House. If the perfect storm blows and those stories prove to be prophetic and Joe Biden also wins the presidency, something bizarre will happen. If he does not resign before, President Joe Biden, very soon after his election, will be impeached by his own Democrat Party in the House, convicted by a Democrat-controlled Senate, and removed from office, leading to the ascendancy of radical liberal Vice President Kamala Harris to the highest office in the land. What has long been the goal of the leftists to destroy Donald Trump and to gain political control over the once free United States of America will be complete.
If Biden is elected and the Senate stays in the hands of the Republicans, an even more bizarre set of circumstances may arise. After the Democrat controlled House impeaches their Democrat President, the Republican-held Senate will be in a weird posture of possibly opposing Biden’s removal for fear of the one waiting in the wings to replace him and what that would mean for America. It is more likely that the Democrats will be forcing the hand of the Republicans to do their dirty work, to convict and remove Biden from office.
If you have been perplexed about why all Democrats across the spectrum, including the likes of socialist Bernie Sanders, have circled the wagons in support of Biden and seem determined to continue their defense until election day, consider this. Until now, they may have been content with the thoughts that some chaos and wait accompanying a cognitively impaired President Biden, whom they could eventually remove under the 25th Amendment, would be acceptable considering the victory they will eventually have. Now, with the revelation of the contents of the hard drive that was copied from a computer belonging to Joe Biden’s son Hunter — that was left at a repair shop, who made it available to Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney for President Trump and to the FBI — the truth of it all will eventually come out, and the Democrats know this.
Before you start thinking that this is horrible news for the Democrats and they will look terrible backing Biden through his election, stop and think about it all: Twitter blocked The New York Post’s story suggesting it came from hacked material. Major networks, other than Fox News, in apparent denial, are not covering the story. Even with only two weeks until election, local media is staying clear of the story. All this puts in doubt the legitimacy of it all, right? Such media complicity in the cover-up will give the Democrats the cover they will need to defend their actions. They will shout how fair they are, unlike the Republicans, to even hold one of their own accountable who has done wrong. Are you getting ill to your stomach yet? After the election they can claim they were misled by Biden, confused by the media, and who could blame them, being that the bearer of the message was Rudy Giuliani, who has been accused of being used to disseminate Russian disinformation in the past. They will crow that what is important is that when they learned the truth, they took corrective action to protect the nation.
The left has no love for Biden. He is an old, privileged white guy, in their minds. They know they cannot trust him to deliver on their lust for total control, court packing and enthusiastic support of the “Green New Deal.” The bombshell Hunter Biden revelations are a gift to the far left members of the Democratic Party who are rubbing their hands in glee that they will now easily be able to get their person in office to complete the transformation of America into a socialist state.
The left, with great difficulty removing the grin from their faces, will claim they would have no choice but to impeach. There is no way that Biden will be able to remain as president considering the massive illegal activity involved and the national security implications of it all. This was made obvious to me on Maria Bartiromo’s “Sunday Morning Futures” program (10-19-2020) in her interview with Senator Devin Nunes. She asked the senator, considering what the media has ignored on this, what he believes is still out there that could come out next week.
Nunes responded: “Yeah, the way I look at this Maria, if the shoe were on the other foot, for example, If Ivanka Trump had gotten a $3.5 million dollar payment from a Russian Oligarch, there would be a massive investigation. If there turned up that Donald Trump’s laptop with all sorts of emails tying that money to a pay-for-play scheme, essentially what we have been investigating the Trump campaign for and President Trump for the past four years the question right now by the fake news media and the social media companies would be this; When is Trump resigning, if not is he going to be impeached before the election and when is Pence taking over? As a matter of fact, that would happen for any governor, any U.S. Congressman, any senator. … That would happen to every American except Joe Biden.”
On the last point, Senator Nunes is wrong. It will happen even to Biden, and that is the point, and it will be Kamala Harris who is taking over.
Joe Biden will never be able to survive such overwhelming damning facts if he is elected. This should compel us all to work harder to elect President Trump. Will the pre-election polls be as wrong this time as they were in 2016? We must hope so and that the tragedy that is Joe Biden will slip from our collective memories as do the names of many others who have unsuccessfully run in the past.
Truth is stranger than fiction, it has been said, and this is no exception. When the end of 2021 rolls around, you can be assured that Joe Biden will not be president in this story. We must pray that it is Donald Trump and not Kamala Harris so that God can once again bless and “Make America Great Again.”
