Flotsam and Jetsam - Mayorkas Impeached, CIA Ordered Up Russiagate,

 From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 02.13.24, at Legal Insurrection, House Impeaches DHS Sec. Mayorkas by One Vote. With Steve Scalise present,  House votes to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas over border crisis. "House Republicans accuse Mayorkas of fomenting border crisis" (Fox).ABC whines House Republicans impeach Homeland Security secretary in historic, controversial vote. Nicholas Ballasay at JTN, GOP-led House impeaches Mayorkas on second attempt, delivering historic punishment "Mayorkas faces two articles of impeachment over his handling of border security and illegal immigration" Althouse loves her NYT, "But the charges against [Mayorkas] broke with history by failing to identify any [personal corruption and other wrongdoing]..." ""... instead effectively declaring the policy choices Mr. Mayorkas has carried out a constitutional crime. The approach threatened to lower the bar for impeachments — which already has fallen in recent years — reducing what was once Congress’s most potent tool to remove despots from power to a weapon to be deployed in political fights...." He will, of course, be acquitted by the Democrat controlled Senate. At Hat Hair, Mayorkas Roasted Live on TV, Bucks Responsibility for Border Disaster. At WaEx Paul Bedard reports Mayorkas personally rejected RFK Jr. Secret Service protection and Naomi Lim has Biden blasts House Republicans for ‘baseless’ Mayorkas impeachment.

Vicky Taft at PJM says It's Not What Biden Special Counsel Included in His Report — Senators Say It's What He Left Out "Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson say the same special counsel report that called Biden forgetful, old, and guilty of stealing and keeping highly classified documents left out a big chunk of evidence. They're wondering what happened to nine boxes full of documents that Joe Biden illegally took and then sent to his lawyer's office, and that were then picked up by the National Archives. The contents of those files and documents were not in the Hur report, and they want to know why." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 02.13.24, American Greatness, House GOP Demands Recordings of Special Counsel’s Biden Interview,  Capt. Ed at Hat Hair, Axios: Watch the Republicans Pounce!® Over Biden's Cognitive Crisis. Can you trademark a cliché? Spencer Brown at TownHall, Oh, So That's Who Thought Biden's Angry Address to America Was a Good Idea, Joe. NewsMax reports Biden Jokes About Memory in Mocking Hur Report. Stephen Kruiser at PJM notes LOL, Sure Buddy — NY Times Gets a Neuroscientist to Say Biden Is Merely a Smidge Forgetful. Kurt Schlichter at TownHall argues Senile Is As Senile Does — and Joe Biden Is Senile. NYPo, Confused Biden looks lost as he wanders behind podium, stares at the floor as Jordan’s King Abdullah II speaks. At Da Fetched, Nancy Pelosi Claims Joe Biden Is “Very Sharp” Mentally, by her standards, perhaps.  NYPo again, Defiant White House says Biden won’t take cognitive test — despite damning Hur report and worried voters. Ace, Biden Will Once Again Refuse to Take a Cognitive Test at His Upcoming Physical "On one hand, you're not allowed to say that Biden is obviously, evidently suffering from dementia because you are not An Expert and therefore have no ability to tell when someone slurs words or repeatedly confuses people." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 02.13.24, EBL: Joe Biden Refuses To Take A Cognitive Mental Test. John Ullyot at TownHall wonders if Obama is Poised to Pull the Plug on Biden? "The last Democrat president has been warning Biden and party leaders for months, privately and publicly through former aides like David Axelrod, that he faces an uphill fight to win a second term. Now that Hur’s report has detonated like a shaped charge in Biden’s political bunker, Obama is the only man on the planet who can talk Jill and Joe Biden out of standing for re-election." From Fox, State attorney general officially calls on Kamala Harris to invoke 25th Amendment, remove Biden from office, "West Virginia AG Patrick Morrisey: Biden's 'serious mental missteps have equally serious consequences.'" Althouse, "Another alternative is for Biden to win the primary delegates needed for the nomination, then announce at the August convention he’s dropping out." "That would set off a scramble where party bosses and delegates anoint the nominee. It would be the most backroom and least democratic maneuver since the primary system became paramount, but it would override a [Kamala] Harris claim of being next in line because she wouldn’t have a prayer of getting a majority of delegates...." Writes Michael Goodwin, in "Kamala Harris’ vow that she’s ‘ready to serve’ is a reminder of how much worse she’d be over Biden". VodkaPundit at PJM is amused when Biden Whacks His Least Vulnerable Spot on Marine OneAmy Kremer@AmyKremer,  "𝐌𝐢𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞 𝐎𝐛𝐚𝐦𝐚 𝐢𝐬 𝐎𝐮𝐭 Former Obama advisor, David Axelrod, says Michelle Obama WILL NOT replace Biden So now what… Do they stick w/the stumbling, bumbling, buffoon of a senile old man Or do they go w/Gavin Newsom?

Steve Richards at JTN, Tony Bobulinski’s closed-door interview may answer key questions central to impeachment inquiry "A key figure in Hunter Biden's early relationship with CEFC China Energy, Bobulinski is set to appear before the House Oversight Committee at 10AM on Tuesday for an interview as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Biden." At NYPo, Ex-Biden biz associate says China successfully sought to infiltrate and compromise WH, Biden ‘enabled’ CCP-linked transactions. PM, Joe Biden 'enabled' family's shady overseas business dealings: Hunter Biden former business associate to the House. "It is clear to me that Joe Biden was 'the Brand' being sold by the Biden family." Ace, Biden "Business" Associate Rob Walker: The Deal With the Chinese Government Front Company, CEFC, Began While Biden Was Still Vice President, With Payment Delayed Until He Left Office; Also Reveals Biden Met with the Head of the ChiCom Front Group. The divine Miranda Devine@mirandadevine "And here it is: the “H to Zang” letter from March 22, 2016. Was an attachment on Hunter Biden’s laptop previously inaccessible, but now it has been produced to the House Judiciary Committee by Hunter ex-partner Rob Walker. Shows the relationship with CEFC began during Joe Biden’s vice presidency, as Tony Bobulinski always said. It’s just that Hunter, Uncle Jim, Hallie Biden and friends didn’t get paid until 6 weeks after Joe left office."  Steve Guest@SteveGuest "FLASHBACK: Joe Biden previously said “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” Today it’s reported that Biden met with the chairman of the Chinese energy firm Hunter sought to create a joint venture with at the Four Seasons. Chuck Glasser at Insty, WHO ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE? ME, OR YOUR LYING EYES? The problem with gaslighting is that in such a noisy media environment, the lies just keep emotionally-invested people inside their “safety bubble.” Just The News does a deep-dive into the nonsense narrative that “there’s no evidence” regarding POTUS and his son’s businesses. I’m neither a psychologist nor a mind-reader, but there’s a point where I just have to wonder if Biden’s defenders actually believe this nonsense."

Capt. Ed at Hat Hair hears Biden Refuses Cease-Fire and Negotiations -- In Ukraine? They haven't milked the cash cow dry yet. Nick Arama at Red State thinks he hears Biden Lets Us in on the Real Reason He Wants Ukraine Aid, Makes Weird Remark About Speaker Johnson "The way it works is that we supply Ukraine mili--- from our stockpiles," Biden said. "Then we spend money replenishing our stockpiles. Stockpiles that are made right here in America, by American workers." Ace, Mitt Romney and 21 Deep State Republican Turncoats Pass $95 Billion Ukraine Aid Package -- With No Protections for Our Border. "Wow, it's almost as if... this was their plan all along." Someone at Hat Hair watches CBS Biden: Trump's NATO Remarks 'Un-American.' From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 02.13.24,  American Conservative: The Senate GOP Establishment Insults the Base Over Ukraine, American Greatness:  Speaker Johnson: House Will Likely Block Senate Foreign Aid Bill

VodkaPundit thinks Biden's Latest Racially Tinged Cringe-Fest Is Just Too Much. Matt Margolis notes Guess Who Biden Blames for His Own COVID Failure. You only get one guess. "The Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines first became available in December 2020; they were developed in record time under Operation Warp Speed. The Trump administration ordered at least 400 million vaccine doses from Pfizer and Moderna — enough vaccines to innoculate 77% of the United States population eligible to receive a shot — before Biden even took office. The Biden administration also inherited a vaccine distribution plan that the Trump administration developed under Operation Warp Speed, and vaccine production and distribution under Biden followed the same trajectory as they did under Trump. But we didn't lose a million Americans under Trump. In fact, it was 16 months into Biden's term before we lost a million lives to COVID."

Beege Welborn at Hat Hair, has a #Bidenomics Update: Core Inflation Comes in Hot Enough to Bake Shockaship Cookies. Brownstone on Biden's Political Shrinkflation "When I first saw this video, I presumed it had to be some sort of satire. Apparently, it’s not. (link to potus account) A sitting US president actually just did this. It’s like some form of poe’s law where any leader of sufficient decrepitude cannot be discerned from a deepfake parody of himself." Capt. Ed comments "I wondered about that, too. However, just because Biden surrounded himself with phalanxes of minders, handlers, and PR people, it doesn't mean they're competent. In fact, given that Biden hired them, I'd tend to assume just the opposite ... and they more or less proved that last Thursday, too."

NewsMax reports on a CBS News Poll: Trump Up 35 Points in Haley's State. Hat Hair's KT hears Trump Endorses his Daughter-in-Law for RNC Co-Chair Job. Will she do it for free? Susie Moore at RedState reports Tom Suozzi Defeats Mazi Pilip in NY-03 Special Election, Flipping Seat Back to the Dems, thanks to Republicans going along with evicting George Santos from the House. Steve Hayward at Power Line, The Daily Chart: Do-Nothing Congress? Hooray!  "I’d say “well done,” but also ask the media why they aren’t asking Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer why the Senate hasn’t taken up one of the most serious pieces of legislation the House passed early this session, HR2, the “Secure the Border Act of 2023.” It ought not to be difficult to grasp that measuring the output of Congress by a numbers game is idiotic. But then. . ." Capt. Ed, "I'd agree, with one exception: the budget. I have no issues if Congress chooses not to expand the myriad ways in which citizens can become entangled by federal statutes and regulation, but Congress has a constitutional duty to budget each year. It's their most basic function. That should come before all other efforts, excepting true national emergencies."

At PJM Athena Thorne claims an EXCLUSIVE: Megachurch Shooter, an Alien Who Should Have Been Deported, Likely Voted in 2020 Election and Stephen Kruiser adds It Ain't Paranoia If It's Happening — 'Undocumented' Voting Edition. Of course it's happening. The question is to what extent. One party wants to find out and crack down, the other insists on not looking and having voting as easy as possible. That should tell you all you need to know. 

As has been long suspected but never proved, Michael Shellenberger at Public says CIA Had Foreign Allies Spy On Trump Team, Triggering Russia Collusion Hoax, Sources Say. "United States Intelligence Community targeted 26 Trump advisors for foreign spy agencies to “reverse target” and “bump”" Capt. Ed   Hoo boy. Read it all and get ready for House Republicans to start issuing subpoenas.   From Fox, Russia collusion hoax was initiated by the CIA: "Michael Shellenberger "Substack columnist Michael Shellenberger discusses his report on the alleged election interference on 'Jesse Watters Primetime.'"

At Ace's Quick Hits "Politico reports that Biden is "frustrated" that the DOJ didn't prosecute his political rivals quickly enough to deliver conviction before the election." ET details how All Trump Criminal Cases Hit Critical Juncture This Week. Althouse, ""President Trump’s claim that presidents have absolute immunity from criminal prosecution for their official acts presents a novel, complex and momentous question..." "... that warrants careful consideration on appeal.... Conducting a monthslong criminal trial of President Trump at the height of election season will radically disrupt President Trump’s ability to campaign against President Biden — which appears to be the whole point of the special counsel’s persistent demands for expedition." Wrote Trump's lawyers in this application to the Supreme Court, quoted in "Supreme Court Gives Prosecutors a Week to Respond in Trump Immunity Case/The schedule the justices set was not particularly speedy, though nothing prevents the special counsel from filing sooner than the court’s Feb. 20 deadline" (NYT)." Atop Da Hill, Stefanik files ethics complaint against NY attorney general over Trump civil fraud case "Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) has filed a bar complaint against New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) over former President Trump’s civil fraud case. Stefanik, the House Republican Conference Chair, confirmed on X, formerly known as Twitter, that she filed a complaint alleging James has conducted a biased investigation into the former president." It has the virtue of being true. At the WV record, Stuart questions Biden's qualifications to be on W.Va. ballot. “The 14th Amendment bars from office anyone who took an oath to uphold the Constitution but then engaged in insurrection against it. President Biden invited the border crisis, incited the border crisis, and has refused to uphold the Constitution.” Turnabout is fair play.
