Should President Biden Be Impeached for, “Giving Aid and Comfort to the Enemy?“

Article 3, section 3, clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution specifies that the giving of aid and comfort to the enemy is an element in the crime of Treason. Is buying oil from Russia Treason? Russia uses its vast natural supplies of crude oil as a major export market and has grown in recent years. In spring 2021, imports of Russian oil to the United States are at their highest level in a decade. Russia became the second-largest exporter of oil to the U.S. later that year.

Across 2021 the U.S. imported between 12 million and 26 million barrels of crude oil and petroleum from Russia every month. In November 2021, the most recent figures on record, the Energy Information Agency reports that the U.S. took 17.8 million barrels. Russia exports more oil to the United States than Saudi Arabia does. The Biden administration continues to downplay the amount of oil we buy from Russia.

The President is sternly opposed to cutting off oil shipments from Russia. He would like to get NATO and the European Union to stop purchasing Russian energy then he would agree to stop buying it in America. If he decides to stop buying Russian energy Biden is concerned that the price of gas could go much higher. On Sunday, March 6, 2022 the pump price in southwest Florida was $3.99 for regular. Later that evening, I saw that the price of crude oil was up to as high as $130 per barrel. 

If it holds at the $130 level, then the standard pricing formula for regular gas would call for an average price of $4.76 a gallon. This means that a car with a 16-gallon tank will spend $76.00 for a tank full of gas. Do you think many Democrats will get elected with people spending $76 or more to fill their tanks? In a previous commentary, I predicted a price of $150 a barrel by the mid-terms. That would mean $5.49 a gallon or $87.00 per fill-up. In some places in the country, prices may be much higher.

As long as the President continues to buy oil and other energy from Russia and they continue their attack on Ukraine, the billions we send to Russia for oil and oil products will provide money for Putin to help fund his war effort. The longer the President refuses to reignite the energy resources in the United States and continues to purchase foreign, the more we are under foreign government control. By the way, for those of you who were not around, it was almost 50 years ago that we had an oil embargo and had rationing of gas in America, and we may well see it again.

The longer President Biden continues to buy oil and gas from Russia, the more questions must come to the surface. First, has Hunter Biden or other members of the Biden family benefited from the oil coming from Russia and other oil-producing countries? Has the President financially benefited either directly or indirectly by continuing to buy energy from Russia? Second, has Joe Biden violated Article 3, section 3, clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution which specifies that the giving of aid and comfort to the enemy is an element in the crime of Treason? And because of his actions of continuing to buy energy from Russia while they are continuing to attack Ukraine should he be impeached by the Congress, for violating the Constitution.

He can’t just stop buying from Russia unless he accelerates the development of our energy resources, driving us back to energy independence. If he finally does this, he will be saying President Trump was correct, and that will be a hard thing for the President and his fellow Democrats to swallow. The question is will he sacrifice himself and the American people on the New Green Deal Altar?

NEW NATO NARRATIVE: Ukraine Can ‘Win’ War with Russia

Know one would have even considered the possibility 3 months ago.

Published

Well that is one heck of a turnaround, eh?

We’ve gone from watching Russia amass an enormous fighting force on the borders of Ukraine, (all while telling the world that it was all routine and to butt out), to watching those same tanks and personnel roll into the sovereign neighboring nation, all the while worried that Russia would simply steamroll Kyiv and take the whole country for itself in a matter of days.

Nearly three months later, and that story is changing…and dramatically.

Ukrainian forces say they have pushed back the Russian military in the region around Kharkiv in northeastern Ukraine, and near the border with Russia, continuing a counteroffensive that has prompted Russian troops to withdraw from around Ukraine’s second-largest city.

Then came a surprising suggestion.

NATO’s Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Sunday that “Ukraine can win this war” following an informal meeting of the group. His comments came after Finland announced it would apply to join the military alliance in what marks a historic move for the traditionally neutral Nordic country.

Joining the military alliance will “maximize” Finland’s security after Russia’s unprecedented invasion of Ukraine in February, President Sauli Niinisto said.

Sweden is expected to follow suit with both applications likely to enflame tensions between NATO and Russia further. Moscow warned last week of “retaliatory steps” if Finland joined the alliance.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is drinking the proverbial Kool-Aid as well, having claimed that Eurovision will be able to hold its enormous, annual songwriting competition in Mariupol next year.

Biden Approval Crashes Again, This Time to Historic Low

This is just sad at this point.

Published

on

Look around your country.  See the struggle in real time.  Watch how hard it is for the rest of this nation to get to where they need to be, every day, and ask yourself “why does it need to be like this?”.

And then realize that all of this trouble is coming to America in what was supposed to be the launching months of a new “roaring twenties”; as COVID faded and the economy roared back to life, America was poised to be a global show for the ages.

Instead, the last year and a half have been filled to the brim with turmoil and strife and not much nice.

US President Joe Biden is taking his lumps on account of it.

An NBC News poll released Sunday shows Biden’s job approval rating has plunged to a fresh low, with just 39 percent of Americans approving of the job he’s doing and 56 percent disapproving.

This was a new milestone for the reluctant leader.

Those numbers represents the lowest mark of his presidency.

Inflation, the economy and border security are the three main areas where voters see Biden failing them. The overall cost of living is standing as the public’s top issue.

Biden’s approval rating has experienced a few brief reprieves over the course of his presidency, but has continued on a steady decline almost from the start.
