From the time Joe Biden announced his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election, I said he was not a serious candidate, and continued to say it even after he “won” the presidency. Continuing his decades of good luck, he was handed the Democrat nomination (as opposed to winning it) in order to assure that the Dems wouldn’t be stuck with Bernie Sanders, whom they hated.
To their credit, instead of seeing Biden as a pathetic loser, resourceful Democrats viewed him as an opportunity. Call it the Empty-Vessel Strategy: Put a senile old dummy in the White House, then use him to ram through your radical-left agenda. And it worked, at least for a couple of years. But with Republicans taking back the House, the Democrat corruption dam is starting to leak, and Democrats are visibly panicking.
The Dems knew from the outset of Biden’s presidency that they would have to get rid of him before the 2024 election, but they also quickly came to realize that they had underestimated Kamala Harris’ incompetence and couldn’t allow her to be their 2024 nominee. After two years of cringey cackling and wilted word salads, I suspect they came to the conclusion that the easiest way to get rid of Kamala would be to let her get on the debate stage in the 2024 Democrat primary, where she was sure to be humiliated once again.
Which brings us back to Joe. Once he allowed his delusions of grandeur problem to take control of his mushmelon brain and started giving hints that he might run in 2024, Democrats realized they had to move quickly to give him the hook. Biden is easy for the Dems to destroy, because his 50-year track record of criminal activity is an open secret in Washington. The challenge was to nail him on something that wouldn’t reflect too badly on the Democrat Party, and saddling him with “mishandling classified documents” fit the bill perfectly.
My best guess is that the Dems will allow Joe to continue being the make-believe president for as long as possible to avoid the negative optic of a lame duck in the Oval Office. Then, shortly before the primaries begin, he will announce that he’s not going to run for reelection “for the good of the country.” He will be hailed as a magnanimous patriot who put the wellbeing of America before his own.
Am I saying that the discovery of classified documents in Joe’s garage and at the Penn Biden Center was planned by the megadonors who control the Democrat Party? We’ll probably never know for sure, but it sure looks suspicious. Since when do Democrat attorneys, who are corrupt to the core, start voluntarily offering documents to law enforcement that could put their client (and the leader of their party) in jail? History tells us they would be much more likely to shred the documents, then put the shreddings in an incinerator for good measure.
Of course, mishandling classified documents is like jaywalking compared to the tens of millions (hundreds of millions?) of dollars Biden has made from selling access to the offices he’s held over the years. The only way they are of any real importance is if they tie him directly to a country like China, from whom his family has made a fortune.
With this in mind, if the special counsel is not already in the bag for the Dems (which he likely is), he will insist on answers to a whole slew of questions that are obvious even to a layman: Who put the documents in Biden’s garage? What’s in the documents that have been discovered thus far? Who had access to these documents? And why did Joe mark one of the files “personal?”
Keep in mind that the outrageously corrupt Merrick Garland has already shielded Biden by narrowing the scope of the investigation, so I doubt there will be any real consequences for Joe other than the Dems booting him out of office. In fact, everything Garland is doing is strictly for show in an effort to protect the Democrat Party from Biden’s criminal activities.
That said, if Republicans take the White House in 2024, the new president can appoint a serious attorney general (my vote is for Kash Patel) who will go after private citizen Joe Biden with a vengeance. I’m not talking about penny-ante stuff like mishandling classified documents, but, rather, tracking the millions of dollars he has made throughout his career by selling access to his office as a U.S. senator, vice president, and president.
The big question is whether Biden will live out his remaining days feasting on graham crackers and warm milk while watching reruns of Bevis and Butt-Head in his Delaware mansion or will he be relegated to an orange jump suit and cozy cell adjacent to son Hunter? As Nancy Pelosi once famously said, “No one is above the law, not even the president.”
