The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday is President Joe Biden and his performance of President of the Unite States. He has obviously made a mess of the United States by opening the southern border and by destroying the economy. He has also made a mess in the world by his disastrous retreat from Afghanistan and by his refusal to stop Russia before its attack on Ukraine. However, are these bad decisions a result of incompetence or deliberate acts to destroy America?
In September 2021, a group of Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives filed articles of impeachment against President Biden. The two reasons given for impeachment is Biden’s “handling of the immigration crisis at the southern border and his chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan.” We all know that such an act will never see the light of day in a House controlled by Nancy Pelosi. However, it is likely that she will lose her leadership position in the next election.
A recent poll shows that 68 percent of Republicans and Trump voters and 66 percent of conservatives want the House of Representatives to impeach President Biden if Republicans take over the House in the 2022 midterms. Democrats set the precedent of impeaching a President for made up claims. Is revenge a good reason for Republicans to impeach Biden? I think not. The Constitution calls for impeachment for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Has Biden committed treason, bribery, or other reasons for impeachment?
Victor Davis Hanson is wondering if Biden is “malicious, incompetent, or a wannabe left-wing ideologue.” He asked an interesting question: “If an administration deliberately wished to cause havoc on the border, to ensure fuel was nearly unaffordable, to create a crime wave, to spark 1970s hyperinflation, and to rekindle racial tensions, what would it have done differently than what President Joe Biden has done?”
Hanson pointed out that Biden puts the blame on other people or gets angry when asked about the terrible things happening in the United States. Putin is responsible for inflation – even though inflation was going up before Putin invaded Ukraine. If it is not Putin’s fault, then it must be Trump’s fault. However, the Biden administration does not seem to realize that dreadful things are happening. They think that they are running a successful administration. Hanson wants to know if Biden really thinks that the current mess in the United States is a success. If so, could Biden and his associates be making the mess on purpose? One thing is sure, the Biden administration “never pivot(s) or compromise(s).”
Why? Apparently, what most in the country see as disasters, Biden envisions as success.
Take the border – or rather its disappearance.
Never in U.S. history has an administration simply canceled immigration laws, opened the border, and welcomed in millions of illegal aliens. All arrive illegally, and without audit, or vaccinations and tests in times of a pandemic.
Cartels now import lethal drugs at will into the United States. We have no idea how many terrorists walk across the border each day.
Almost all the entering millions who break the law are poor, without high school diplomas or English skills, and in dire need of massive federal and state housing, food, education, legal, and health subsidies.
Do the leftists in Washington believe that millions of dependent new residents will look to the left for decades of support and soon find ways to reciprocate with fealty at the polls? Is that why Democrats brag in unapologetic tribalist fashion about changing the demography of the electorate?
Hanson’s article continued with a discussion of how Biden’s policies have made the current energy crisis worse. He cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline and new federal oil and gas leases. He later cancelled permits for Cook Inlet in Alaska even though gas prices are approaching $7.00 a gallon in California.
Hanson discussed inflation next. Biden printed “trillions of dollars at the moment supplies were short and demand was spiking,” so what did he expect would happen? Is Biden using inflation as a fair way to spread the wealth or to attack corporate greed?
With violent crime climbing quickly to the 1970s levels and movements to defund the police, “radical city and county prosecutors” refuse to “charge or lock up criminals” and then they empty jails and prisons. Is it any wonder that their actions “have ignited a national crime wave”?
Americans are tired of the new woke tribalism. Judging individuals on the basis of their race, gender, or superficial appearance is amoral, and contrary to the entire civil rights movement, and the U.S. Constitution.
It destroys any idea of meritocracy and divides the country artificially into supposed victims and victimizers.
But do the Biden people see it that way?
Or do they promote racial tensions and tribalism, as welcome revolutionary fervor?
In that regard, the Bidenites promote identity politics as a good way to stir up the pot, to demonize supposed oppressors and deify the oppressed – all as a way of retaining political power. For the left, living in a socialist nation controlled by an elite is far preferable to living in a free and prosperous one answerable only to the people.
The public believes the Biden administration has failed America, with disastrous results due either to its incompetence, belligerence, or left-wing zealotry.
But Biden and his delusional team seem delighted with what they have wrought.
In sum, what Americans see as an abject catastrophe, they cheer on as a stunning and planned success.
So, the question remains: Is the Biden administration deliberately acting to destroy the American government, or are they just a bunch of incompetents who have not gotten anything right? If the destruction is deliberate, it is treasonous behavior, and Biden should be impeached. If it is incompetence, Biden should be removed from office using Amendment 25. Either way, America will be in trouble because his replacement would be Kamala Harris!
