Grifters and crooks, father and son

I have been waiting for this to show up in a more prominent way and now it has. The more interesting question is whether it matters. Obviously it does in some sense, since the Friends of the Democrats (ie the mainstream media + social media) have done all they can to prevent any of it becoming an election issue. Still, there is this.

The three tweets are from here: President Trump: Bidens Are ‘Grifters,’ ‘Crooks’. And so they are. But for a Democrat, it does not appear to matter. These people give democracy a bad name.

  1. This is the lamest October surprise ever. No one with a brain is going to fall for that EMAILS!!!! malarkey any more.

    You will have to try a lot harder than that to cheat.

    Here’s another story breaking. Lets see how far this one goes before it gets sent to /dev/null.

    So terrible that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of “Smoking Gun” emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the @NYPost.

    Facebook and Twitter have essentially conceded that their actions were ill-conceived and improper, but have nonetheless demonstated the pervasiveness of their cancel-culture inspired gaslighting of the Democrat voter base.

    The Post has just dropped Part II.
    Wow.

    The emails prove that Joe Biden is a traitor who sold his office to the highest bidders in Ukraine and the Chinese Communist Party.

    Hunter Bidengate: Fredo With a Crack Pipe, Castro With a Social Network

    “Facebook fascists suppress the most critical piece of journalism in the 2020 election cycle.”

    Hunter Biden got a million-dollar board position with a company in an industry of which he had zero knowledge in a country with which he had no familiarity, solely for that company’s purpose of buying a sitting American vice president who had been made the point man on foreign policy with that country. This really can’t be disputed anymore thanks to the New York Post‘s reporting, and to call it disqualifying to Biden, even in the absence of anything else already in the hopper where he’s concerned, might even be charitable.

    Biden’s campaign put out a statement in response to the New York Post piece, which couldn’t be less convincing in denial. They don’t deny Biden met with Pozharskyi, they just say the meeting wasn’t on Biden’s official schedule. Well, no kidding — putting that meeting on his official schedule would be like taking out a billboard ad somewhere along the Beltway saying, “I’m owned by Burisma.” One would hope somebody that stupid wouldn’t be vice president, but on the other hand …

    Yep and Jeffrey Epstein was hiding in the grassy knoll along with Pope Francis and Bernie Sanders.

    ‘And let’s replace the corrupt MSM networks with the so-much-more-reliable MakeItUp YouTube news’, demands Donny as the presenters on Fox News struggle to maintain a straight face. In a dexamethasone-induced haze, he gazes off into the distance, reminiscing about the good old days when he could ‘just grab ’em by the pussy….’

    The sub-story here — and the major story from my point of view– is the political activism of Silicon Valley in trying to cover up the Bidens’ corruption on behalf of the Democratic Party.

    If Trump wins next month, rolling back Silicon Valley’s purchase of the US Congress to avoid regulation will be one of the top running stories in US politics for the next three years.

    America is over Trump.
    There’s likely far worse stuff Joe has done still to be uncovered, but it doesn’t matter.
    Republicans won’t be voting for Joe, they’ll be voting to oust Trump.
    Joe outspending Trump 15 to 1 in Michigan.

  11. Ed Case

    Hunter Biden was/is a drug addict.
    He put his computer in the repair shop and then forgot/neglected to pay the $85 bill.
    The repairman gave the stuff to the FBI back in May, yet Trump only finds out about it thru the New York
    Post?
    The bloke is too stupid to be President.

    CBS in America refuse to publish this story showing they cannot be trusted. CBS own the Ten Network in Australia and should be forced to sell it immediately. We don’t need biased reporting that covers up for alleged major criminality carried out by political leaders. CBS are unfit to own a media outlet in Australia.

  14. Bear Necessities

    The biggest underlying question from this is “What type of America comes out of this if Biden wins?”. With the MSM and the Tech social media platforms all in for the Dems how does dissenting get raised and not trashed?

    Have these platforms had an NBA moment in which they have trashed their market. Is this their “Black Lives Matter” painted on the court moment?

    Why has’t the FBI released detailsof what was on the Hard Drive?

    They obviously realised the importance of the Mac PC when they subpoenaed the Repair Shop to take ownership of the PC.

    More importantly, I would assume the Computer Repair Shop Owner has the Serial Number of the Mac PC which should be able to validate who purchased and owned the Mac PC.

    Biden, Harris campaign teams hit by outbreak

    A person who travelled on Joe Biden’s plane to Ohio and Florida this week has also tested positive for the coronavirus, his campaign has announced.

    Democrat Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris has also cancelled campaign travel until early next week after her communications director and a crew member on her plane tested positive for coronavirus.

    During our contact tracing, we discovered around noon today that a member of the company that charters my airplane has also tested positive for COVID. This crew member was on the plane with me, but was more than 50 feet away.

    My COVID test from last night came back negative.
    — Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 15, 2020

    Not only was the individual 50+ feet away and wearing a mask, but I was wearing an N-95 mask. No members of my staff were in contact with this crew member either. My doctors have advised that there is no need for me to quarantine.
    — Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 15, 2020

    The Biden campaign said that the person who tested positive on Mr Biden’s plane worked for the aircraft’s charter company but was not near the 77-year-old presidential candidate at any point before, during or after the flights.

    “The Vice President did not even have passing contact: this individual was over 50 feet from VP Biden at all times,” the campaign team said,in a statement, adding that the person sat in the last row of the plane, far from where Mr Biden sat.

    “Given these facts, we have been advised by the Vice President’s doctor and the campaign’s medical advisors that there is no need for the Vice President to quarantine,’ the statement added.

    The news came ahead of duelling town hall meetings on Friday (AEDT) for Donald Trump and Mr Biden after the second scheduled debate between the two was cancelled.

    Ms Harris has cancelled all campaign travel until Monday (AEDT) ‘out of an abundance of caution’ after her communications director Liz Allen and a crew member on her plane tested positive, Mr Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said.

    Big Tech is in the tank for Biden, Democrats: Devine

    But the only “potentially harmful” or “unsafe” impact of The Post story is on the Biden campaign — and, now, on the credibility of Face­book and Twitter.

    Did Facebook and Twitter impose the same censorship on the New York Times story on President Trump’s leaked — or “hacked” — tax returns two weeks ago?

    Did they ever fact-check the Times’ and the Washington Post’s debunked “Russia collusion” tall tales?

    Did they interfere with BuzzFeed spreading the Steele Dossier tissue of lies?

    Nope.

    Big Tech only suppresses information that reflects badly on the Biden campaign.

    The emails and photographs we have published speak for themselves. They come from the hard drive of Hunter’s laptop computer, legally obtained by The Post after he abandoned it at a Mac computer repair shop in Delaware.

    They tell an alarming story of Biden family grift in Eastern Europe and China, including in Ukraine during the time Joe was vice president in charge of America’s interests there.

    The emails we published fly in the face of Joe’s claims that he knew nothing about his son’s lucrative foreign business dealings.

    A tale of two COVID economies: Red state recovery, blue state recession

    In red states (those voting Republican for president in all four of the last four elections), the combined unemployment rate stood at 6.6%. Among blue states (those that voted Democrat in all of the last four for presidential elections), the figure was 10.5%.

    Why Hasn’t Joe Biden Said No To Democratic Threats To Pack the Supreme Court?

    By John Kass Chicago Tribune

    Will Joe Biden’s stubborn insistence that Americans “don’t deserve” to know where he stands on packing the Supreme Court cost the Democrats in the Nov. 3 election?

    Yes.

    At issue are numerous Democratic threats — if they win the White House and control of the Senate — to increase the number of Supreme Court justices and ram liberal policy into law that they otherwise couldn’t dream of getting through Congress.

    The First Amendment, the Second Amendment, religious liberty, freedom of speech, the right to defend yourselves, all would be fair game to a packed liberal Democratic court.

    The number of justices has been set at nine for 150 years, and even President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, with a Democratic supermajority in Congress, failed when he tried increasing it in 1937.

    Biden was offered up by his party as a moderating voice against the hard left that brings energy, rage and an ever-present threat of political force to muscle through its agenda. By saying voters “don’t deserve” to know if he supports packing the court, Biden caves to the radical wing of his party.

    The left, as we’ve seen for years now and especially this past summer, is about force. Force in the streets, destroying history and tearing down statues, even statues of abolitionists. Force on campuses threatening and silencing dissent. Force of the cancel culture, which is all about intimidating those who disagree, at schools, at the workplace, even in American newsrooms.

    And now we see the threat of force against the independence and credibility of the Supreme Court, the one stable institution in a nation divided by angry tribal politics.

    Biden once thought court-packing would undermine the court’s independence and called it “boneheaded” years ago.

    But he’s been dodging the court-packing issue on the campaign trail for weeks.

    From the Comments

    Joe Biden is hesitating on this issue because nobody told him what his opinion on this is yet.

    To a degree, m0nty might have a point. Previous Demorat “October surprises” have somewhat discredited the concept. That said, someone who still has orgasms about the Nixon tapes and Watergate should be a little cautious about claiming that Hunter’s emails are a nothingburger.

    As with Nixon, the cover-up will bring the Bidens down, and quite pissibly Facechook and Twatter with them.

    The Gordian Knot Protecting Obamagate Secrets
    COMMENTARY

    .
    By Charles Lipson – RCP Contributor

    An Excellent Article

    Donald Trump and Republicans are furious that U.S. Attorney John Durham has not brought indictments against senior people who spied on the president’s campaign, lied repeatedly to judges in order to do it, and based their intrusions on specious evidence, which they knew to be false — and had been commissioned by the opposition political party. We know the broad outlines of this coordinated operation, but we still don’t know its full extent, all those involved, and what precise roles they played.

    Attorney General William Barr promised major developments in this probe by late spring, then mid-summer, then Labor Day, and now sometime after the election. If, as Republicans say (and the evidence seems to show), there was a systematic effort to weaponize federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political purposes, the public has a compelling right to know. This need-to-know is urgent because the Democrats’ presidential nominee, Joe Biden, served as the second-highest ranking member of the administration that conducted these acts.

    Why have Barr and Durham delayed issuing indictments or producing a comprehensive report? There are two ways to view this riddle.

    House Republicans Ask Director Wray if FBI Was in Possession of Hunter Biden’s Laptop During Trump Impeachment and Hid Evidence from Trump Defense

    House Republicans on Thursday sent a letter to Director Chris Wray asking if the FBI was in possession of Hunter Biden’s laptop during the impeachment coup of President Trump.

    “If the FBI was, in fact, in possession of this evidence and failed to alert the White House to its existence that would have given even more weight to the president’s legal defense, this was a gross error in judgement and a severe violation of trust,” the letter says.

    The letter was signed by 19 House Republicans, including Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.; Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz.; and Jody Hice, R-Ga.

    Great data from
    @realDonaldTrump’s rally in Des Moines shows support the pollsters are missing:

    – 10,139 voters identified

    – 48.5% (!) NOT Republican

    – 29.4% (!) Democrat

    – 25.0% did not vote in 2016

    – 13.7% did not vote in the last 4 elections

    New Hunter Biden Emails Show Sales of Influence to Chinese Interests – Millions Paid to Biden Family for “Introductions” and Legal “Assistance”…

    One of the reasons we are not seeing more DC politicians talking about the Hunter and Joe Biden story is because they too participate in exactly the same system. It isn’t only Joe Biden, his family and democrats selling influence and assistance to foreign governments; most of the senate and legislative leadership use exactly the same process to build wealth for their family. At this point all those who remain silent are doing the same thing.

    C-SPAN Suspends Debate Moderator Steve Scully After He Admits Lying About Twitter Hack…

    Well, well, well… once again common sense was correct. C-SPAN host and debate moderator Steve Scully has admitted he lied about his Twitter account being hacked:

    NEW YORK (AP) — C-SPAN suspends political editor Steve Scully indefinitely after he admits he lied about his Twitter feed being hacked.

    Scully ultimately admitted that the hacking claim was a lie and issued a mea culpa. “These were both errors in judgement for which I am totally responsible for,” he said. “I apologize.” (link)

    Mr. Scully’s “errors in judgement” were a result of outing himself as a coordinating member of the anti-Trump resistance; and subsequently destroying the credibility of himself, his organization and the debate commission. Previously Scully, C-SPAN and the Presidential Debate Commission claimed Scully’s twitter account was “hacked“.

    Both the Hunter Biden story and the tech companies’ reaction are being well covered in Sydney by the Daily Telegraph. There is a second Miranda Devine full page article (there was one yesterday too), another article as well as a strongly worded editorial about big tech malfeasance.

    “Why has’t[sic] the FBI released detailsof[sic] what was on the Hard Drive?”

    Indeed – they’ve had it for 12 months!

    Then add:
    Failure to supply defense exculpatory evidence despite explicit order from the judge to do so (Gen Flynn case) – 13 pages of it!
    Made a “side deal” with the defense team re: prosecuting alleged crimes by Gen Flynn’s son and failed to advise the defense or the court they had done so as required.
    Failure to investigate HRC after CIA advised she was colluding with Russians to get political dirt on DJT.
    Use of that very same “dirt” to investigate Trump, even though they knew before they started that the file was junk and unverified.
    Failure to report exculpatory evidence and deliberately modifying advise from CIA on the status of Trump team member Carter Page.
    Bypassing standard procedure on multiple levels when dealing with Gen. Flynn – didn’t advise him that he was the subject of their investigation, didn’t advise him that they had the call transcript, didn’t go through proper channels to arrange the interview.
    Charged Flynn for “lying” to them, when what they said he lied about was never asked of him during the interview.
    Failure to supply FISA court with all information.
    Falsely signed documents to FISA court that all the information was true and verified.
    “Accidentally” factoried (wiped) 27 of 31 phones of the Mueller team days after SMS’s between two FBI agents (Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, who were an FBI attorney and the lead investigator in DJT collusion respectively – they were also lovers at the time) were declassified and made public.

    It looks REALLY bad for the FBI – they appear to have been a totally partisan political entity, determined to block DJT and promote HRC before, during and after the election, as well as after inauguration. True, it was mostly from the top down, so the institution may survive, but public trust in it has been or will be decimated by these actions. I will be very interested in what Pientka has been telling them (assuming he is in protective custody and cooperating, as seems likely), but we may never see it.

    So Paedo Joe and camel ah are going into the bunker ,like that other socialist Hitler did in 1945 . Theywill be protected by the communist media from searching questions about Biden corruption .
