In case you were wondering whether Republicans were going to have a warm and fuzzy relationship with the Democrats who declared 4 years of war against them, here’s your answer.
With the ink still wet on the SECOND set of articles of impeachment against Trump, we’re seeing the first set of articles of impeachment against Biden.
The only difference being, with the articles against Biden, there’s more meat on that bone than mere political rhetoric and innuendo.
For one thing, we have Biden’s own words bragging about that quid pro quo arrangement that led to the very questions Trump raised with the Ukrainian President during that ‘perfect’ phone call that was the pretext for the original impeachment.
There’s been plenty of OTHER questions raised about how the Biden family may have profited from connecting their financial and political lives with foreign individuals and entities.
That led, predictably, to the following action being taken:
Freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she filed articles of impeachment on Thursday against President Biden on his first full day in office, as promised.
…She had said earlier that she would file impeachment articles accusing Mr. Biden of abuse of power, for his family’s business connections in China and Ukraine when he served as vice president.
In a statement, Mrs. Taylor Greene said the case against Mr. Biden is “vast and detailed.”
“President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the presidency,” she said. “His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama’s vice president is lengthy and disturbing. President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family’s pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies.” –WashingtonTimes
Some of the relevant evidence has already been collected by Senate hearings taken up last fall but was studiously ignored by the Media(D).
From Chuck Grassley’s own page:
For example, it showed the following:
Hunter Biden and his associates and family members were connected to Chinese nationals and Chinese companies linked with the communist party and People’s Liberation Army. This includes CEFC China Energy Company Limited and its subsidiaries.
Records show that a company linked to the communist regime sent Hunter Biden’s law firm millions of dollars.
Other records show that Hunter Biden opened a line of credit with a Chinese national linked to the communist regime and funded it with approximately $100,000. Then he, James Biden and Sara Biden went on an extravagant global spending spree.
Still other records show that Hunter Biden, via his law firm, also sent over a million dollars to James Biden’s consulting firm, the Lion Hall Group.
These transfers began less than one week after CEFC sent $5 million to a company called Hudson West III, a company linked to CEFC and Chinese nationals associated with the communist regime, which then sent money to Hunter Biden’s law firm.
When the bank contacted Sara Biden, who was associated with the firm’s bank account, she refused to answer their questions and provide additional documentation.
According to records we have on file, the bank submitted the account for closure.
Senator Johnson and I recently issued a supplemental to our report that showed Hunter Biden’s close business associate, Rob Walker, received $6 million from a Chinese company linked to the communist regime. There’s yet another link in the chain from the Biden family and their associates to the Chinese government.
The report also showed that State Department officials believed that Hunter Biden’s Burisma board membership created the perception of a conflict of interest and “was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.”
Secretary of State Kerry publicly denied knowing of Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board.
We acquired evidence showing that he did, in fact, know about that role.
In December 2015, instead of following U.S. objectives of confronting oligarchs, Vice President Biden’s staff advised him to avoid commenting on Burisma’s oligarch and instead say, “I’m not going to get into naming names or accusing individuals.”
Joe Biden was running an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine and he pulled his punches while his son was on the board of Burisma.
Based on witness testimony, Burisma’s owner allegedly paid a $7 million bribe to officials serving under Ukraine’s prosecutor general to shut the case against him. When he allegedly paid that bribe, Hunter Biden was on the board.
These examples are just a sampling from the report and the tip of the iceberg with respect to the Biden family’s troubled ties to governments adverse to U.S. interests.
These associations, and the millions of dollars that passed between and among Hunter Biden, James Biden and others, create criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns.
That’s why I’ve since written to the Justice Department about the risk that Hunter and James Biden essentially served as agents of the communist Chinese government for purposes of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. –Grassley
Will this go through on the first mention? Of course not. But neither did the one against Trump.
But it IS good to know we are finally making them play by their own rules.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them.

Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
