(RightWing.org) – President Joe Biden’s open border policies are devastating America with the influx of both illegal aliens and drugs such as fentanyl; many argue that the human component might be an intentional plot to shift the country’s demographics towards the Democrats for decades to come. His Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandra Mayorkas, seems to have forgotten the middle word in his title and has colluded with his boss to not only hold the floodgates wide open but has actively worked against those trying to protect the country like Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton.
Republicans in the House of Representatives brought articles of impeachment to the floor for a vote but the measure was doomed by three people whose names the Conservatives in the chamber would like to change to Benedict Arnold.
Not so Fast
While the Leftists around the country are alternately making claims of vindication and mocking the Republican “failure,” at least one congresswoman and one long-time political analyst believe that Mayorkas might still be shown the door. Representative Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) appeared on Newsmax on the Wednesday following the vote, and while expressing her regrets that the articles failed, she offered the country some hope.
Malliotakis said she believes another vote will be taken within a few weeks but with a different outcome. Fox News Senior Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram wrote an article titled “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to why Rep. Blake Moore flipped from Yea to Nay on impeaching Mayorkas.” And, isn’t that a mouthful?
Pergram’s chosen headline could be viewed as an allusion to another message. In 1979, what has become a cult classic novel, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” was published by Douglas Adams and the titular book within the book has the words “Don’t Panic” written on its cover.
Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) and other Republican leaders in the chamber must have felt confident bringing the matter to the floor after the rollcall to determine who was in attendance that day, knowing that the margin would be very thin since there are 219 Republican and 212 Democratic members. However, the Lefties pulled off a secret operation any military strategist would be proud of.
Representative Al Green (D-TX) was absent from the vote for the previous piece of legislation — for a good reason, he had just had abdominal surgery — but that did not stop the Democrats from getting him up out of his hospital bed and wheeling him in, still wearing his hospital gown. At this point, the measure was deadlocked at 215 yeas and nays, we comment the impeachment failed. That’s when Moore apparently decided to join the traitors and flipped his thumbs-up vote to a thumbs-down.
Moore’s last-minute switch did not indicate that he had changed his mind about the fact that the way Mayorkas is dealing with the border crisis means he needs to go — quite the opposite. The rules governing how the House of Representatives does business say that only a member of the losing side can request a revote on the matter. So instead of a tie, the nays officially prevailed, Meaning the impeachment can be brought up again when either Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) returns after a round of cancer treatments or another Republican candidate wins a special election being held to fill a seat left vacant after former Representative George Santos (R-NY) was expelled.
So “Don’t Panic,” the story is far from over.
