Politics; It's All About that Gas, No Trouble

Oh my goodness, so much stuff. Well, the Biden popularity streak continues, as The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll  ". . . for Monday shows that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) disapprove. The latest figures include 23% who Strongly Approve of the job Biden is doing and 45% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22." In an I&I/TIPP Poll, 56% Blame Biden’s Afghan Debacle For Ukraine Invasion, Fear Putin Will Use Nukes

So the precedent is firmly established, thanks to Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, et al. But the Republicans don’t need to ground an impeachment effort in petty allegations that amount to little more than policy differences. The Republicans could justify an impeachment based on a host of Biden policies that violate the Constitution and are clearly impeachable offenses. The GOP has a duty and an obligation to hold Biden accountable.

But there is no rush. Impeachment hearings should last as long as necessary—say, six months or so—so that every American will know about Biden Administration’s unprecedented assault on our constitutional rights in time for 2024. Impeachment needs to be used as an educational tool to inform undecided and low-information voters about the real criminal nature of the Biden regime.

Under the Constitution, impeachable offenses include treason, bribery, and “high crimes and misdemeanors.” The last phrase is generally thought to mean “an abuse of public trust” such as violating the Constitution and endangering our national security. As Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) points out, there are “multiple grounds” to impeach Biden. Here are a few:
Flashback: The Democrats damned Biden by impeaching Trump. “These are the consequences Joe Biden’s party has reaped — the eventual impeachment of every president going forward should the opposing party control the House. The Democrats are going to have to live with their actions, norms be damned, as they were warned.

Well, that's about half, but I'm gonna stop for now, and maybe pick up the culture war stuff later.
