Is the Deep State Coming After Joe Biden? (Did Hussein declassify Brandon's secret documents while he received chicom bribes?)
Real Clear Politics ^ | 1/13/23 | Josh Hammer

By far the most important difference is the constitutional distinction in the statuses of the two men at the center of this two-pronged saga: Donald Trump was president of the United States, while Joe Biden was merely vice president of the United States during the time that he absconded with classified documents.

That distinction may not seem like a big deal, but from a constitutional perspective, it makes all the difference in the world. The president of the United States alone is vested by Article II of the U.S. Constitution with the "executive Power" of the national government. This prosaic textual truism forms the crux of what constitutional lawyers -- who, being lawyers, make things seem more complicated than they really are -- refer to as "unitary executive theory." The vice president of the United States, in fact, possesses no more "executive Power" than does a Cabinet official, a White House janitor, or even a reader of this column.

The upshot is that, as this column argued after August's Mar-a-Lago raid, "Trump had unilateral, plenary authority to declassify any document that he wanted to declassify -- period." Biden possessed no such similar power (he does now, as president). Furthermore, as the same August column argued, "all ex-presidents receive various taxpayer-funded accoutrements, among them a staff with security clearances and secure facilities (SCIFs) for the maintenance of classified records." Biden, as an ex-vice president and not an ex-president, had no such niceties; he merely had a garage with a lock secure enough for his Corvette. What's more, the Presidential Records Act also permits departing presidents to take personal copies of any of their records; the statute affords no such similar protection for departing vice presidents.

From a legal perspective, we will see where freshly minted special counsel Robert Hur goes...

VP Brandon took bribes from the chicoms and Hussein knew all about it. Has anyone asked the Kenyan about the role he played?

THE whole Trump document B S (with a capital “B”) was a pre-inoculation intelligence operation designed to cover the actual crimes that they KNEW BEFORE THE ELECTION , that BIDEN HIMSELF, had committed.

So now even the Queen of the Harpy movement, Joyless Buttface, says,” I guess we should drop the Trump document scandal now”.

Biden stole classified documents that related DIRECTLY to the Hunter Biden , Ukraine, Bersima scandal, while he was V P. He stored them in a non government controlled environment at U Penn library. The same U Penn that takes massive donations from Chinese Communists. That alone just about guarantees that Xi has a wall full of 8 x 10 glossies of every damned page.

The documents could NOT have been declassified by Biden as the VEEP does not have this power.

Now if Obama chooses he can claim that he declassified those documents but if he does that gives 100% credence to Trump’s claim that he too , declassified the documents he had , IN A SECURE , SECRET SERVICE CONTROLLED , environment.

In addition if Obama claims he declassified all those documents then there is nothing that should preclude complete publication of ALL OF THEM.

What a small little box Trump has put them

4 D chess indeed.

Obama and the Deep State have played this and us beautifully. They gave ,then V P Biden , enough rope in Ukraine and China to hang himself and his reprobate family, and with full knowledge of the election theft to come, installed the now completely controllable , effectively brain dead Biden, into office. Once accomplished they could do anything they wanted and blame it all on the stupid, hapless , pathological lying, much hated, Biden.

The old Fart Whistle could care less. He was informed before he ran of the plan and that his misdeeds would be mitigated quietly if he plays along.If he didn’t they would throw him and his family under the proverbial bus and his ,reportedly 600 million dollar fortune would evaporate like a fart in a typhoon. He was told that after 2 years he would resign due to health reasons and the left would install a handpicked POTUS (likely Gruesome Nuisance). Seems Joe might be balking on the whole “resign” part of the plan so the left trundles out a little hint at what is in his future if he doesn’t bow to the military/intelligence junta THAT CURRENTLY OWNS THE EXECUTIVE , MOST OF THE LEGISLATIVE and at LEAST 1/3 of the SCOTUS. They are consolidating power and not for any good reasons.

“Perhaps someone at the DNC thought that Joe Biden did his job by shepherding his party through the midterms without succumbing to the much-feared “red wave,” but that he is now disposable and should be replaced at the ballot in 2024 by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA). Loath though I am to speculate, it is difficult to think of a sounder explanation as to why, only now, all of this is coming out.”


From conversations on War Room, Susan Rice (remember her??) is ensconced in the WH & calling shots .... the leaks are to keep FJB from announcing a run in 2024 so the candidate running will be someone “they” want ... FJB isn’t ‘it’ this time around. Personally, I think it will be Newsom, but my skin crawls at the sight of him, much less thinking of him anywhere near the White House. To me, the play would be get rid of FJB*, stick Kamala in there with Newsom as VP. Kamala could be disposed of .... she has no backing & then Newsom would be running as the VP “incumbent”. Just my 2 cents.

*Did you know that if convicted under the government documents act that applies to FJB as a government employee, part of the punishment could be removal from whatever government office he is holding? An “impeachment” of sorts without having to go through Congress. Veeerrry interesting. The left plays hardball/smash mouth - I can see them doing this to get Kamala/Newsom in place for 2024. Dr. Jill would be madder than a wet hen - she likes being ‘first lady’.

Obama may be implicated in this as well if they want the truth. He allowed Biden to set up all these $$$ deals when he was VP.

My guess, this is the first step to oust that ole White demented man who is hurting the party.

Kamala will step in and serve two years as the first female President of color and for the rest of her life she will cash in huge on that and the Dems will get who they want to run in 2024.

I will be very surprised if anything happens over all of this. More political theater to keep the rabble roused. Gives both sides something to bloviate about...:)

Obama used Hunter as his bag man as well. If there was a crisis anywhere the world, Obama sent Biden his ‘point man.’

Hunter went along - even on the VP plane! - to get the payoffs.

So trips to China to ask for fairer trade agreements were just cash in opportunities for the Biden crime family. Some of that money went to ‘the big guy’ Joe but also went to Obama.

But Biden made the mistakes of saying he’d run for re-election. So drip drip drip. All of the scandals they were holding over him to control him are going to topple him.

It’s ‘the silver or the lead.’ Do what we say and you’ll become rich and your crimes ignored. Don’t listen to us and we will destroy you and your family.

Joe will be impeached within the next six months if he doesn’t bow out of the 2024 race. They’ve had the goods since he was VP. Before, most likely.

Only the corrupt are advanced.

Need a VP? Here’s a closet case homosexual Tim Kaine.

Need a president? Here’s the most compromised swamp rat out there who can’t even win a Dem primary and we’ll just install him as pResident.

Obama is a pawn as well.

Real handlers?

Globalists, one world WEC types behind the scenes. Soros, for example. They’ll unite the world under the control of one government which will then be taken over by the antichrist.

Why would the deep state want to get rid of Biden? They installed him a mere 2 years ago.

He was corrupt, mentally unfit and unlikeable in 2020 also and he has served the permanent government and deep state well.

Why get rid of him now?

Obama is a lot of things, but he is not stupid. More politicians get burned in the coverup than an actual crime. He will not get burned protecting Biden. If there was a letter declassifying those documents, the DOJ would already have it and would have said there is nothing to see here.

I suspect it is too late for the RATS to remove Joe and install the VP. As the incumbent Harris would be the presumptive candidate in 2024 and she would be a drag on the party. Sometime this year “for health reasons” or “to spend more time with family,” Biden will announce he is not running in 2024. Opens the door for younger candidates like Newsome, Cooper and Pritzker.

In typical DNC/Deep State fashion, expect more ‘discoveries’ every 2 or 3 days until Biden resigns. The implications are that they will tank Biden and try to also tank Trump as ‘both’ having breached archive protocall, and be banned from running for office in the future. Then they will promote Kamala or whomever they have designated as the “Man”.

If this happened to Pence - MSM would be all over Trump - asking him what he knew about it.

Guess that's my point with the meme.

I am noticing how "quiet" the media is - no one is at Obama's home, asking him for a statement about this. These were Obama's classified records and it was his V Pres.
