After the Republicans Take Back the U.S. House They’ll Impeach Biden—Here’s Our Prediction on What’s Next

The midterm elections are on November 8th, 2022.

We predict that the Republican Party will get a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. We expect the new Congress will be much more conservative and pro-Constitution than the current congress.

We predict the first major event, once the new Congress is sworn in, will be when Republicans begin impeachment proceedings against Biden under the 25th Amendment to the Constitution

Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 of the Constitution, known as the Presidential Succession Clause, states that the Vice President will assume the duties of the President in “case of the removal of the President from office, or of his death, resignation, or inability to discharge the powers and duties of the said office.”

Section 2 states:

Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

Therefore, Kamala Harris will replace Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. after his impeachment. Then what? And how can Congress impact the candidate for VP?

Republicans Have A Say on Whose is Chosen to be the Vice President

We find it most interesting that the Republicans in Congress, if they exercise their duties under Amendment XXV, can impact who is made the vice president.

QUESTION: Why is this important?

ANSWER: The Constitution names the vice president of the United States as the president of the Senate. In addition to serving as presiding officer, the vice president has the sole power to break a tie vote in the Senate and formally presides over the receiving and counting of electoral ballots cast in presidential elections.

U.S. Constitution, Article II, section 1, clause 3 reads,

“…and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President…

NOTE: If a president and vice president become simultaneously unable to serve as president the speaker of the House ascends to fill the office.

That’s because Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution empowered Congress to set a line of succession to the presidency. “The Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President.”

It is possible that Republicans could impeach both Biden and Harris, which would mean that the Republican Speaker of the House, or some other officer, would become the president!

The Bottom Line

If Americans want free and fair elections then the U.S. Congress must insure that voter fraud, manipulation, ballot harvesting and illegal ballots are outlawed.

Given the events surrounding the 2020 presidential election this becomes more compelling.

When the Republicans take control of the U.S. Congress they must make, among other issues, election security one of their highest priorities.

Not to do so is a violation of their oaths of office.

This is why the 2022 midterm election is so important.

Vote and vote wisely. Our future of our nation depends on it.

AMENDMENT XXV

Passed by Congress July 6, 1965. Ratified February 10, 1967.

Note: Article II, section 1, of the Constitution was affected by the 25th amendment.

In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.

Section 2.

Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

Section 3.

Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

Section 4.

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

    They should impeach both Biden and Harris. Then nominate Trump as Speaker since you do not have to be a Representative to become Speaker. Trump could be President by January 2023.
