joe biden speaking

Just the law. Just the facts. Joe Biden is either guilty of felonies punishable by ten years in prison, and should be promptly indicted, or is unable to be prosecuted for lack of specific intent, since he cannot recall how classified documents got to his home or when he served, so must be removed from office.

This is not complicated. The Democrat Party needs to fish or cut bait, fairly enforce the rule of law against someone competent to stand trial or remove that person as incompetent to be president. They have so far done neither, pretending one can be forgiven for having dementia, yet serve as president.  

Put differently, Democrats have been forced by Biden’s character, who he is – either to excuse his blatant criminality, removal, retention, and revealing of classified information, or excuse his blatant incompetence and dementia. The first erodes trust and violates the law, the second endangers national security. They chose the first.

DOJ’s report admits Joe Biden did all the things he is accused of doing, that he knowingly took, retained for years, recklessly handled, and revealed to unauthorized persons classified information – 25 classified documents in three locations. They then claim he is too “elderly,” his memory too shot to prove intent.

Just the law. Put aside all the other allegations against Joe Biden, felony bribery, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, colorable RICO claims, all of which – by a new Attorney General – should be explored.

Focus only on 18 U.S.C. 1924: “Whoever, being an officer, employee … of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position … becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location shall be… fined … or imprisoned for not more than five years, or both.”

Focus on 18 U.S.C. 798: “Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person … classified information … shall be fined … or imprisoned for not more than ten years, or both.”

Just the facts. The 345-page report by Robert Hur, in detail and with photographs, makes a case against Biden, proving or implying he committed both federal crimes, so should be prosecuted.

Instead, recognizing Biden as the presumptive Democrat nominee and perhaps taking note that the DC Circuit ruled against Trump’s claim of immunity from prosecution, Hur ducks the issue.

Referencing Biden’s weak memory, a product of age – which Hur corroborates with startling Biden lapses – Hur absolves Biden of any specific intent.

DOJ defends Biden the way you might a drunk accused of criminal assault, saying he cannot be prosecuted for what he did, since he cannot remember doing it.

Have you ever seen such a contorted, politically motivated, ultimately indefensible excuse for not prosecuting someone who did what he says he cannot recall doing?

Let’s get serious. Those boxes – dating to his time as a vice president, a period in which his foreign ties raise huge legal questions – did not fly to his house, garage, and Chinese-purchased office space in DC – on their own.

The material was labeled, marked classified, pulled from highly secure safes on Capitol Hill and in the White House during his vice-presidential tenure. The documents relate – we know – to Afghanistan, Iraq, and sensitive issues, so they did not just drift haphazardly into his briefcase.

Everyone who has ever handled classified material in their life knows that this material is special, must be constantly protected, is stored in a particular way, not treated as regular documents are treated.

Joe Biden knew every single time he took those documents home, likely all 25 times, that he was doing something that – even as vice president – required enormous care, special storage. His recklessness, if not worse, is beyond the pale.

But they will not prosecute him – just like they did not prosecute Hillary Clinton or Obama over intentional election interference in 2016, the whole Russia collusion nonsense, or Clinton for mishandling of classified documents, destruction of the same, emails, and a server, or for apparent sale of her office.

The Democrat machine will not prosecute Biden for blatant, multi-location recklessness, will not investigate his potential sale or indirect access by foreign nationals via his son. They will not prosecute his family, but work to protect them.

We live in times when illegality and dementia by a sitting president – at least if the president is a Democrat – appear forgivable, ignorable, of no consequence.  But …

But … wake up. This is dangerous stuff. A mentally and morally compromised president, unaccountable because partisans allow him to playact for their benefit, is highly dangerous – to all of us. Period.

Joe Biden lost his wife andbone year old in 1972 when she pulled out in front of a tractor trailor; blames it on a “drunk driver”. 1988, Biden plagerized a speech he made in Iowa running for President, has to drop out. How many times has he claimed he was “top of his class” when he was the bottom 30%? Then you have decade after decade of “gaffs” available for view on-line. My point is Biden is and always will be a lying sack of s#@t… his lack of mental acuity just exacerbates it!

The major flaw with Hor’s report is not Biden’ mental capacity now, but the criminal culpability when the documents were removed from the SCIF and or his office. He should be charged and indicted for all the laws violated, which Hur detailed in his report. If indicted, the court should then take into Biden’s mental ability to stand trial.

If you are forgetful you can commit crimes of treason, insurrections, bribery. A lesson for the next democrat president to get away with criminal activity. H got away with her crime. Compromising Trump and how many people have disappeared around her suspiciously. Also there was not enough evidence to prosecute. H knows too much. Pizzagate comes to mind. In ole Joe’s world everything is fine he is fine only he talks to dead people. Puts other people in different countries, falls down every other day, can’t talk or pronounce names nor numbers, but he can’t be prosecuted, but can be president of the United States of America and leader of the free world. Have his hands on the nuclear code button. But he is too feeble to be tried in a court of law. For three years he let millions of migrants illegally into this country. Without a plan where to house them or provide jobs. He thought Texas should take care of them along with the other border states. He opens the border the first day after he was installed and then said the border is closed. Getting closer to election he says the border has been a disaster and open the past 10 years. He forgot that it was him who told them come on in. He could close it anytime he sees fit he has that power but he puts the blame on the reps and Trump. Everything he screws up is the other guys fault. And they still let hem get away with destroying the country because he can’t remember the destruction he has done to this country. And his handlers tell him it was Trump’s fault. 25th Amendment has to invoked. This man is a danger to America and the free world

I opt for both. That Biden broke the law on the handling of classified data is punishable by 10 years and/or $10k fine for each. Having held that classified data since his time as a Senator (at least 14 years upon it being revealed to the public) or as VP (just over 6 years) with minimal protection and access by non cleared individuals (his biographer and likely Hunter) makes the crime more detrimental to the nation. That Joseph R. Biden never had the authority to remove classified information for a secure location only adds to his criminal activity.
Now that Hur let the cat out of the bag to the entire nation, that as most suspected, Joe Biden is non compus mentis should be irrelevant to charging him but is vitally relevant to his ability to function as the leader of the USA.
Many say Joe is not in charge but Joe is the face of the Administration and hosts foreign leaders. Just having this doddering old fool representing the nation is a disgrace and time for that error to be corrected. Yes, even if it is with cackling Kam ala, or Ka mala.

He’s been the worst president we ever had except for Obama who also hates America! The claim that he beat Trump is ludicrous! And more evidence of the stolen election keeps coming out so why isn’t he removed. The ghosts in power need to be arrested and prosecuted

Good, concise article. Yes, the whole situation is dangerous. I believe it is coming to a head, but which way it will go is unknown. Trump’s prosecutions seem to be unraveling, as they should, but again, the outcome is unknown. What a mess this country is, prompted by democrats, encouraged by Covid. I know we have lived through other perilous times, but this seems worse, maybe because of technological advances. I hope the villains will reap what they sow.

In order to begin to grasp the two tiered justice system in this country, one must go back at least to the thirties, when the dem party embraced marxist ideas and was extremely cozy with stalin. McCarthy tried to stand up to the monolith, but by the fifties commies were, literally, everywhere in government, with the dems sheltering the majority. Neither Truman or Ike were interested in rooting them out. Since that time weve had two brief periods of reprieve; 1981-89 and 2017-21. The dems are loyal not to this country but to an idealogy known as Marxism. They have dominated this country for decades. Its sad and scary and therefore most people tend to look away but that guarantees their ultimate victory.

This is a case where there is a law for democrats and another law for the rest of us, In the first place, a Vice President does not have a right to remove documents, classified or otherwise, from his office when he leaves office. That is the first crime Biden committed and keeping them haphazardly and showing them to others is another crime. Yes, he has some sort of dementia and if that would make him unfit to stand trial, then he should be removed from office as he cannot serve as President. WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR. Also, Trump was President when he removed the documents found at Mar-A-Lago and acccording to law, he could remove them when he left office; therefore ALL CHARGES AGAINST HIM SHOULD BE DISMISSED IMMEDIATELY.

Joe may be too demented to be put on trial, but dementia is no barrier to being president. After all, others make all of his decisions for him and he tries, usually without succeeding very well, to communicate those decisions. And did you see it? Joe is becoming a TikTok star, so that mindless Joe can appeal to mindless youth who live out their lives staring at their phones. Maybe we can have President Artificial Intelligence Joe, where AI replicates Real Joe and serves as an avatar president. AI Joe could do interviews and Rose Garden speeches. I guess Democrats would be all right with that so long as they get to manage the computer input.

Correct me if I’m wrong but I thought he didn’t wait till he was Vice President to take documents he was not supposed to have but had done so even as a Senator first. Either way, Joe wasn’t senile back then. Just incredibly corrupt!

Joe Biden has been a blight in U.S. government for over 50 years. He is the most documented serial liar in the history of mankind as well as being a plagiarist and having abused his political status for personal gain. Now, Biden is too senile to know what he has done or why he has done things he did that are illegal. Yet, we are to believe that Joe Biden can be trusted to make decisions about the U.S., including whether or not we should go to war or use nuclear weapons? Even the naivest liberal thinking American citizen cannot buy into this hypocrisy.

The fact that, even after Hur’s excuse for not filing charges against or prosecuting him for proven offenses, Biden is still allowed to stumble around as President of the US is an absolute mockery of this nation, its people and its laws. Evidently Biden won’t even get as much as a slap on the wrist – which he wouldn’t know what it’s for anyway – yet will remain in the WH as though he has brain (memory) enough to make national decisions. The whole world knows this yet is there even a hint the GOP in the House will call for impeachment for provable crimes against Biden (regardless of present memory loss)? And IF the Dems in Senate deny it, they are culpable and every one should be recalled by their states.
I personally am beyond upset at the blatant two-tier justice system that now favors one political party over another, regardless of national security risks. We no longer have to wonder if God has removed His hand of protection over the USA. But then we threw Him out of our public squares back in 1962 and the moral degradation has markedly increased, especially in this 21st Century. It is sad, so very sad we as a people have come to this place in our history.

You know darn well Bin Biden’s handlers stalled allowing Biden to get get worse. It can easily be checked if all the Confidential Documents Democratic socialist Biden had carelessly stored around his residents were classified. He has spent his life skipping votes, refusing to discuss the issues and NOT looking out for the American people. He is a traitor and has allowed people into our country with the intent to destroy us from within!

ABSOLUTELY!!!
The left and the Democrats want to continuously fabricate fake charges against Donald Trump for crimes he did not commit, in an effort to “take him out”, so be it! Then the very least we should be doing is investigating and indicting Joe Biden for all the obvious crimes that he is highly suspected of. This seems obvious to me! It’s one thing to have all this classified material in multiple locations when he was not authorized to be in possession of them! But has anyone asked the bigger question; How and when did he manage to smuggle these documents out from their secure locations and to his residence, among other locations??? They had to be smuggled out!!!

How can Hur absolve Biden of intent when the truth is that WHEN he took the documents, he was Senator and VP, both offices not legally allowed to take anything, especially Classified and Top Secret materials that Biden had in his possession? No matter that he doesn’t know what he’s doing now, he DID when he took them. Criminal and even treacherous acts.

There are logically (that is unknown to DIMMs) two possible outcomes:

  1. Biden is so mentally incompetent, he can’t assist his defense and will be presented as a sympathetic buffoon; or
  2. . He is fine cognitively and should be prosecuted.

His defenders want it both ways–no trial AND no resignation under Amendment 25!

You can’t have it both ways. On one hand we have a Democratic Party led weaponization of our legal system to prosecute a political opponent, Donald Trump over trivial, made up charges and yet Joe Biden gets a pass for his and his Hunter Biden’s obvious shakedown of foreign governments for many millions of dollars. Consider this, Trump donated his salary as President to charity while serving in office. And Biden continues to benefit from shady deals with countries like China and Iran.

Back when I spent 4 years in the Army Security Agency, we were often reminded (warned) that if we even accidentally took any classified documents outside the operations building, we, FIRST, would immediately lose our security clearance and, SECOND, be court martialed for unauthorized possession of classified material. Didn’t matter if it was just confidential or top secret code word, because classified is classified! Neither hillary nor biden will have their security clearance pulled and neither will be prosecuted! Talk about laws for thee but not for dimocrats!

Since Biden purposely ignored his OATH to this Country to protect our border and then without hesitation, unabashed, & without immediately disapproval from our Congressmen, nor any indication of dismay that I’ve been aware of, certainly indicates that Congress is not serving their responsibility to the American citizens, either!
I’ve been so disappointed that not a public word of TREASON or, at the very least, FAILURE TO PERFORM PRIMARY DUTIES has been uttered by those who should be acting AGAINST BIDEN for this TREASONOUS ATTACK AGAINST OUR PRIMARY DEFENSE!!! STUPIDITY is the only lesser term I have for this destruction we’ve been seeing by millions of refugees since!
I’m aware that the Congress isn’t acting against this because they agreed to it ( but THEIR JOB IS TO HELP CORRECT THE SITUATION – NOT IGNORE IT!!! I TRULY BELIEVE THE ONLY REASON BIDEN hasn’t been called on this is because the Congressmen don’t want to set a PRECEDENT! That’s not a good enough reason in my opinion! Since the number of senators, representatives, staff and all… excuse me…politicians…we pay for their supposedly work on our behalf, they’ve been a complete failure in my opinion! And even after recognition by not IMMEDIATELY addressing this GLARING “mistake’ if that sounds more proper…. still indicates lack of protecting the USA!
