House could vote as soon as next week on an impeachment inquiry resolution into President Joe Biden

House Republicans argued Friday that the latest indictment of Hunter Biden on federal tax charges bolsters the need to approve an impeachment inquiry resolution into President Joe Biden, which is planned for a floor vote as early as next week.

The resolution references committee probes into Hunter Biden’s business dealings, which were central to the indictment unveiled late Thursday in California. Prosecutors allege a Hunter Biden scheme to avoid paying more than $1 million in income taxes from 2016 through 2019.

“Now that Hunter Biden is being charged for felony criminal activity related to the family business in which Joe Biden himself was aware and from which he benefited, Americans deserve more answers,” said House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith, R-Mo.

Published December 8, 2023

The troubled life of US President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, took a new turn for the worse with his Dec. 7 indictment on federal tax charges. He was already under indictment on federal gun charges, and his plea deal on both matters had fallen through in federal court five months earlier. Both sets of charges aren’t just trouble for him, but for his father as well. Conservative media have long tried to tie Hunter Biden’s activities to his father. In September, a committee in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives began an impeachment inquiry. No solid evidence has turned up showing that President Biden benefited from his son’s misdeeds or connecting political activities of the father to the son’s business dealings. Still, the new indictment raised the prospect of Hunter Biden facing two criminal trials in 2024, just as former President Donald Trump, the frontrunner for the Republican nomination, is looking at four criminal trials himself.

He was charged in federal court in Los Angeles with failing to pay at least $1.4 million in taxes he owed between 2016 and 2019, and with evading taxes in 2018 by filing false returns. The nine-count indictment accuses him of three felonies, including tax evasion. He’s also charged with six misdemeanors, including failure to pay and failure to file his taxes.

Published December 8, 2023

Former Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey claimed Friday that voting on articles of impeachment would be “unfair” to President Joe Biden.

House Republicans released the text of a resolution authorizing an impeachment inquiry Thursday, the same day special counsel David Weiss secured the indictment of Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, for failing to pay over $1 million in taxes from 2016 to 2019. “I think it would be unfair to vote Articles of Impeachment because there’s no evidence there, but I think the House has an appropriate oversight function,” Christie, who is running for president, told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell.



RELATED: House GOP releases Biden impeachment inquiry resolution ahead of planned vote

Published December 7, 2023

The House GOP released a resolution Thursday to formalize its months-long impeachment inquiry into President Biden, with a full House vote planned for next week.

The resolution authorizing the inquiry — released months after former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) declared an impeachment inquiry to be underway in September — comes as a trio of committee leaders overseeing the probes enter a more combative phase of their investigation as they try to wrangle witnesses and documents.

It says the panels are “directed to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Joseph Biden.”

A markup of the resolution is scheduled for Tuesday.

Republicans hope that formally authorizing the inquiry will put more legal weight behind the probe and their ability to compel evidence, particularly if any of those battles end up in court.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
