Panel serves ‘nothing burger’

Well now, it appears that the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, a panel comprising supposedly serious lawmakers, has offered the public a telling preview of the emptiness of the effort to impeach President Biden.

Put another way, they got nothing from the witnesses they called this week in the first hearing called to conduct an “impeachment inquiry” into the president’s alleged “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

There is nothing there!

The GOP-led House — which is now being run by the cabal of kooks comprising the MAGA Morons — is trying to find something on which to hang around Joe Biden’s neck.

Listen up, gang! You won’t find anything that holds up as an impeachable offense. Even some Republicans in the House — some of whom are members of the MAGA cult — are trying to drum a semblance of sense into the numbskulls seeking to impeach the president.

The Republicans in Congress are hellbent on finding something with which to accuse the president. They are acting solely out of vengeance for Democrats’ ability to impeach Donald Trump twice.

Democrats, though, compiled actual evidence. Thus, there was demonstrable evidence of a high crime and misdemeanor. Not this time!

The Judiciary Committee, if it was handling this inquiry with the seriousness it deserves, surely would be able to provide something to ponder. As it stands today, the House GOP has served us a juicy “nothing burger.”

Impeach POTUS? For what?

I am still scratching my noggin over Republican efforts to launch an impeachment inquiry against President Biden.

My curiosity comes from this simple question: What are the “high crimes and misdemeanors” that the president allegedly committed?

My quick answer: There aren’t any. My more complicated examination: The GOP is paying Democrats back for impeaching their guy, Donald Trump, twice for crimes he clearly committed while sitting in the office of the presidency.

Republicans want their retribution — if I can borrow that term from Trumps’ own glossary.

Trump infamously got Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on the phone and asked him for a political favor in exchange for weaponry to use against a possible Russian invasion. Trump wanted Zelenskyy to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. The Constitution forbids such a thing. So, the House impeached Trump,

Then came the 1/6 assault on our government by the traitorous mob that acted at the behest of Trump. The House impeached him a second time.

You know how those impeachments turned out.

So now the House is pondering an impeachment inquiry into President Biden. It is looking for something, anything, to hang on Joe Biden.

Oh, is this where I mention that the president is seeking re-election in 2024? Is there any correlation between that and this phony impeachment inquiry? Looks like it to me.

One of the GOP zealots happens to be the Republican who represents the Third Congressional District in North Texas, Keith Self. He told a Farmersville gathering this week that he wants an inquiry but didn’t specify the charges that should be examined.

An impeachment inquiry against a president who has spent his entire professional life in public service looks like an exercise in revenge. This is what we get when we send zealous ideologues — rather than dedicated public servants — to Congress.
