Sunday News Roundup: Gov. Abbott’s Neanderthal Thinking Pays off for Texans

Neanderthal thinking rules the day. – I’m old enough to remember 17 days ago, when Governor Greg Abbott lifted the mask mandate and every liberal in the country screamed like stuck pigs that we were all dead and doomed to have another outbreak of the China virus.

Yeah, that didn’t happen. Check it out:

May be an image of text

Thanks, Governor.

I’m also old enough to remember how China Joe Biden reacted to the Governor’s action:

From a story at Fox News:

Just over two weeks after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus mandates allowing businesses to operate at 100 percent capacity and made masks optional, the red state is still reporting decreases in cases and hospitalizations.

The governor championed his state’s success in a Friday night tweet saying, “Today Texas recorded the lowest 7-day COVID positivity rate since that data began being calculated: 5.43%.”

“We also recorded the largest daily number of vaccines administered to Texans: 342,849. More Texans getting vaccines will keep down the positivity rate,” he said, though adding that receiving the vaccine was “always voluntary.”

Texas reported 2,239 new infections Saturday, roughly 500 fewer cases on average from the previous week, according to data from the state’s health department.

Biden slammed Abbott’s decision — which was shortly followed by similar mandate removals by Mississippi — as “Neanderthal thinking.”

“We’ve been able to move that all the way up to the end of May to have enough [vaccines] for every American, to get every adult American to get a shot,” Biden told reporters from the White House earlier this month. “The last thing we need is the Neanderthal thinking.”

[End]

So ironic for a guy who is literally old enough to have memories of the stone age to accuse others of thinking like Neanderthals.

This downward trend in Texas and other red states who either never had mask mandates or whose governors have recently rescinded them is horrible news for Democrats, of course, which is why you see them out there still issuing dire warnings  and attempting to shame anyone who follows the Governor’s latest advice. Democrats are communists at heart, and as communists they want control over everyone’s life. Nothing in their lifetimes has provided them with the means of exercising their totalitarian impulses as readily as the COVID-19 pandemic and surrounding public panic has given them. Thus it is no surprise at all that they will now fight with every ounce of their collectivist bodies to maintain the fear that has given them their power.

But the data doesn’t lie, and bad news for Democrats is, as always, great news for America.

Speaking of the news and the faking of it by our Soviet-style media… – The evil media minions at the Associated Press continue their efforts to unabashedly fake the news this week, now ordering all of their employees to avoid using the term “crisis” to describe what is unarguably a growing crisis along our southern border.

I kid you not:

From the story at the Washington Examiner:

Associated Press Vice President and Editor-at-Large for Standards John Daniszewski cautioned staffers this week that the U.S. immigration disaster does not yet meet the dictionary definition of the word “crisis.”

In an internal memo this week, titled “From the Standards Center: A note about the current increase in border entrances,” Daniszewski told staffers to aim for “accurate and neutral language.”

“The current events in the news – a sharp increase in the arrival of unaccompanied minors – is a problem for border officials, a political challenge for Biden and a dire situation for many migrants who make the journey, but it does not fit the classic dictionary definition of a crisis,” the memo reads.

“Therefore,” it adds, “we should avoid, or at least, be highly cautious, about referring to the present situation as a crisis on our own, although we may quote others using that language.”

[End]

In other words, the managers at the AP got a call from the White House warning them that some of their writers were straying from the approved Democrat/media narrative on the border crisis and reacted by trying to shut that down.

This is what a crisis looks like:

What we have here from the AP is classic news fakery from a classic fake news service.

Joseph Stalin would be so proud right now.

Here’s another story the AP won’t be covering… – If you think you’ll get the truth about the Secret Service helping Hunter Biden cover up a gun crime, you are sadly mistaken. But you will get coverage of the story from JustTheNews.com:

From the story:

Text messages allegedly retrieved from the laptop of Hunter Biden appear to confirm that the U.S. Secret Service and the FBI both had involvement in the now-unfolding scandal in which one of Biden’s firearms was discovered in a Delaware trashcan.

News reports have claimed that the Secret Service may have inserted itself into that controversy several years ago, even after Hunter Biden’s protection detail from that agency had already ended at that time.

On Friday, meanwhile, the New York Post said that text messages obtained from Biden’s infamous laptop appear to confirm those claims.

The alleged text messages shared by the Post apparently show Biden claiming that his deceased brother’s wife “stole the gun out of my trunk lock box and threw it in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens [sic]. Then told me it was my problem to deal with”

“Then,” the text messages claim, “when the police the FBI the secret service came on the scene she said she took it from me because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid for the kids.”

[End]

Here’s more from a story at the New York Post:

Hunter Biden sent a text message that said the Secret Service responded after his handgun disappeared in 2018 — contradicting the agency’s assertion that it wasn’t involved, The Post has learned.

In a lengthy message sent the following year, President Biden’s son described the situation in detail, saying his former sister-in-law-turned-lover, Hallie Biden, tossed the firearm into a trash bin outside Janssen’s Market, a gourmet grocery store in Wilmington, Del.

“She stole the gun out of my trunk lock box and threw it in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens [sic]. Then told me it was my problem to deal with,” Hunter wrote.

“Then when the police the FBI the secret service came on the scene she said she took it from me because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid for the kids.”

The Jan. 29, 2019, message adds: “Really not joking the cop kept me convinced that Hallie was implying she was scared of me.”

In another message, sent closer to the incident, Hunter described the handgun as “my 38.”

“Took from lock box of truck and put it IN PapER BAG AND Threw it in trash can at local high end grocer. For no reason,” he wrote on Dec. 6, 2018.

“And I freaked when I saw it was missing 10 minutes after she took it and when she went back to get it after I scared the s–t out of her it was gone which led to state police investigation of me. True story.”

Both messages are contained on a hard drive obtained by The Post that holds the contents of a damaged laptop computer that was left at Wilmington repair shop by Hunter in April 2019 and never retrieved.

[End]

The Secret Service has officially denied involvement in the matter, but the Secret Service is no doubt lying about that.

This is America’s First Family in action.

Thanks, Democrats!

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: America Moves Into its Brave New Facist World

Interesting little fact this morning… – Go to your browser’s address bar and type in “www.antifa.com”. As of 5:30 a.m. today Central Time, you would be redirected to “www.whitehouse.gov”.

Weird. But hey, Antifa certainly played a big role in helping to get China Joe Potato Head Biden installed into the White House, so why not?

What Antifa endorses, Antifa destroys. – While that bit of fun symbolism was going on, the Portland, Oregon chapter of Antifa was tossing rocks through the windows of the local Democrat Party headquarters, letting the new party in power know that the terrorist’s group’s support is … ummm …. conditional:

Such a fun bunch of young people.

Speaking of the White House website – it now asks for users to identify their preferred pronouns.

No, really, I swear I do not make this stuff up:

Image may contain: text that says 'PRONOUNS 無血無 -select an item- The Administration -select an item- she/her he/him they/them Other Prefer not to share PHONE' (123) 456-7890 COUNTRY" United States'

Just fyi, my preferred pronouns have been and always will be “Tex” and “Bubba”, but I answer to a variety of cusswords as well.

China Joe just set a new glass ceiling for your school-age girls. – In a flurry of mindless stupidity and mendacity on his first day in office, China Joe Potato Head Biden dutifully performed his job as the designated sock puppet for the DC Swamp, signing a variety of egregious executive orders. As almost an afterthough amid orders to rejoin the worthless Paris Climate Accords and kill the Keystone XL pipeline, our new dementia-ridden POTUS also signed an order that will require schools receiving federal funds to allow biological males to compete in girls’ sports.

No kidding:

Oh, guess what else? All those biological males need only “identify” as female, and will no doubt be allowed to shower with your girls as well.

This is an atrocity. But hey, it’s what you Democrats voted for. Aren’t you proud?

Just in case some of you labor under the illusion that the rank and file in the U.S. armed forces just timidly accept the results of this clearly stolen election, take a look at this view from the Biden motorcade as it proceeded down a Pennsylvania Avenue devoid of ordinary Americans:

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder is about Hunter Biden:

Just as a reminder, that crackhead son, who made millions selling U.S. government influence to China while China Joe was Vice President, was allowed to just stand right up there next to Jill Biden as the Big Guy took the oath of office yesterday. Meanwhile, this poor little girl in Arkansas – who will be forced to shower with and compete against boys when she reaches school age thanks to the Big Guy – went to bed with with no father figure in her life.

Unity, my ass.

Required Reading for Today. – Over at DailyWire, Ian Hayworth pens a terrific piece this morning that everyone should spend 5 minutes reading. Hayworth points out the fact that the American electorate rewarded Democrats for holding the nation hostage to brutal COVID edicts, nightly BLM/Antifa riots and destruction of our major cities and previously unthinkable assaults on free speech in 2020, and then asks why anyone would expect the Democrats to ever change?

It’s a great question. Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

In 2020, the Democratic Party applied three strategies with one single objective: to win. These three strategies were hugely — if not irrecoverably — damaging to American society, and were applied with a full understanding of their consequences.

In the end, the Democrats succeeded. Joe Biden will be the president, and the Democratic Party will control the entirety of Congress.

How can we ever expect them to change their tactics when they are clearly so effective?

COVID-19 Lockdowns

When COVID-19 appeared on the international scene in 2020, the Democrat’s quickly recognized it as a political opportunity. “Never waste a crisis,” as the saying goes. Criticism of China’s regime was dismissed as xenophobic, Trump and other Republicans were blamed for every case or death, and Democrat-run cities and states forced businesses to close under draconian lockdowns. Almost overnight, the American economy was intentionally placed on life support and much needed relief was intentionally delayed in Congress, all while Democrat politicians flaunted their own “rules.”

[End]

Go read the rest. You’ll be glad you did.

A blue-check dimwit media figure asks the burning question. – Grance Franke-Ruta, a leftist journalist who no doubt voted twice to make communist Democrat Bill de Blasio the Mayor of her city, had a bad experience with her husband trying to get a COVID vaccine shot on Tuesday. So naturally, she did what all leftist dimwits do, and took to Twitter to whine about it.

Here is part of a long thread she posted:

“Why is everything in NYC so badly run?” she asks, obviously without ever taking even a second to step back and examine whether or not her voting decisions might – just might – have something to do with the fact that everything in NYC has gone so horribly wrong in recent years. Meanwhile, the answer to her question is blindingly obvious:

Image

Political leftists are simply incapable of learning. They utterly lack the ability to engage in the introspection necessary to understand that they are in fact the problem, for the simple fact that they have been taught to believe that they are better and smarter than the rest of us.

And so, after four years of Bill de Blasio and all of his epic failings, they go out to the voting booth and re-elect the Big Doofus to screw up their city for four more years, and then act surprised when that happens. Or they watch communist Democrat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler presides over 100 straight nights of violent riots and go out and vote to re-elect him for four more years. Or they go out and mindlessly vote for an addled lifetime politician who has been in federal office for 47 years and never solved a single problem, and then are shocked to learn that he’s going to make their daughters, granddaughters and great granddaughters take showers with boys who are sporting penises.

Yes, it’s bizarre behavior, but that’s who these people really are. Sadly for the rest of  us, it’s the sort of mindless, bizarre behavior that takes free countries and turns them into fascist prison states that look exactly like Washington, DC looked on inauguration day.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Cotton Demands Special Counsel and China Apparently Owns MIT

Senator Cotton makes a really strong point. – Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to handle the investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes, money laundering and other influence peddling activities around the world. Cotton notes that the circumstances create a clear and blatant conflict of interest where the Big Guy, China Joe Potato Head Biden is concerned, and that conflict of interest cries out for the appointment of a special counsel related to the case.

From a piece at JustTheNews:

“I know the Biden campaign released details of a tax fraud investigation in Wilmington,” said Cotton during the Fox News interview. “I think that was just to show maybe the least damaging part of the investigation.”

“There’s allegations of securities fraud and money laundering related to Hunter Biden’s Chinese businesses, a crooked hospital deal with Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, out in western Pennsylvania. These investigations span multiple jurisdictions,” Cotton said, remarking that in the event that Joe Biden becomes the nation’s next president, “those prosecutors are in line to be fired next month. If there were ever circumstances that create a conflict of interest and called for a special counsel, I think those circumstances are present here.”

The Arkansas Republican said that the Biden family has leveraged Joe Biden’s government posts for their benefit in the past and would continue to do so if Biden serves as president.

“Look, the Biden family has been trading on Joe Biden’s public office for 50 years. Valerie Biden Owens, his sister, and Jim Biden, his brother, and Hunter Biden his son,” he said. “Do we really think that that will change if Joe Biden becomes president, the highest office in the land?”

[End]

Right now, the investigation is being handled out of the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware. Joe Potato Head Biden will no doubt follow the example of Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self and immediately fire all U.S. attorneys and replace them with leftist cronies whose first task will be to halt any potentially damaging investigations and cover them all up. The creation of a special counsel’s office would make it much more difficult, both politically and procedurally, for a Biden-appointed attorney general to come into office and sweep it all under the rug.

Sen. Cotton is absolutely correct in this instance, as he generally tends to be. But will Barr do the right thing related to this clear case of the Biden family peddling its influence around the world? His record thus far is certainly not encouraging.

After all, Byron York revealed yesterday that this investigation began way back in 2018, and was already ongoing when Barr took office. He has been fully aware of it since his first day on the job and chose to keep it all quiet for the last 21 months despite his knowledge that its existence was something American voters should know about given that Biden was the Democrat Party nominee for president.

I’m not advocating that Barr should have revealed the investigation as an October surprise. But Barr should have made the investigation public during the Democrat nominating process so that Democrat primary voters would be aware of the enormous ethical problem China Joe would create for their party. By withholding its existence and the strong evidence against not just Hunter but the entire Biden family, Barr heinously influenced the outcome of the general election.

Why, it’s almost as if Barr wanted Joe Potato Head to win. Go figure.

Meanwhile, on the election challenge front… – On Thursday 106 GOP members of the U.S. House of Representaives filed an Amicus brief of their own in support of the Texas lawsuit that challenges the clear constitutional violations that took place prior to the election in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia:

24 members of the Pennsylvania Senate and 68 members of the PA House did the same thing:

The Justice Foundation and the Amistad Project joined in the fun:

The suit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton certainly has a great deal of support.

But of course, not everyone is on board, including not a single Democrat or a single individual in the nation’s corrupt news media. Then there is RINO Nebraska Senator Ben Sassy Sasse, who yesterday snidely remarked (because everything he says is a snide remark) that Paxton’s lawsuit has other motivations.

From a story at Newsweek:

Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, suggested on Thursday that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, filed a Supreme Court lawsuit attempting to overturn the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in an effort to get a pardon from President Donald Trump.

Sasse suggested on Thursday that a lawsuit filed with the Supreme Court by Texas’ Attorney General Ken Paxton in a bid to overturn election results in four battleground states is an attempt to garner a pardon from President Donald Trump.

The Associated Press reported in November that Paxton is under investigation by the FBI over allegations that he abused his office in an effort to benefit a wealthy donor. That investigation came after seven senior staff members under the attorney general urged federal law enforcement in an open letter in early October to “investigate allegations [against Paxton] of improper influence, abuse of office, bribery and other potential crimes.”

“I’m no lawyer, but I suspect the Supreme Court swats this away. From the brief, it looks like a fella begging for a pardon filed a PR stunt rather than a lawsuit—as all of the assertions have already been rejected by federal courts and Texas’ own solicitor general isn’t signing on,” Sasse told The Washington Examiner on Thursday, commenting on the long-shot effort to overturn the election results in the four battleground states to benefit Trump.

[End]

And who knows? Sassy Sasse may be right – the lawsuit could be destined to fail. But are the 17 other state attorneys general supporting the lawsuit also looking for pardons? Are Sasse’s 106 fellow Republicans in the House all looking for pardons? What about the 92 Pennsylvania Republicans – are they looking for pardons? Do all of those Republicans and the myriad lawyers and witnesses who are fighting the good fight in all of these states where massive election fraud did take place have bad motives in Sassy’s eyes?

What a ridiculous thing to say. But hey, it’s Ben Sassy Sasse – ridiculous is his other middle name.

And on the China influence front… – No, this is not about Hunter Biden or Eric Swalwell and his honeypot, although it certainly could be.

No, this is about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and MIT, which refused to allow Sec. Pompeo to speak on its campus out of fear of offending the formerly respected school’s Chinese benefactors. I swear I do not make this stuff up.

From a story at the New York Post:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo unloaded on officials at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Wednesday, accusing them of refusing to host him because they didn’t want to upset their Chinese interests.

Speaking at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Pompeo accused the Chinese Communist Party of “poisoning” the nation’s higher education system and said American schools were censoring anti-Beijing dissent because they were “hooked on Chinese Communist Party cash.”

“MIT wasn’t interested in having me to their campus to give this exact set of remarks. President Raphael Reif implied that my arguments might insult their ethnic Chinese students and professors,” Pompeo told the crowd in the Peach State.

“But of course nothing could further from the truth. These are the very people that this set of remarks is intended to protect, to protect their freedoms,” he said.

MIT is currently under investigation by the Department of Education for failing to fully declare foreign donations from the People’s Republic of China.

[End]

Oh.

This situation is already intolerable, and we’re about to have a pure China puppet in the presidency.

Pray for our country.

Is America “Trending Towards Secession”? Maybe So.

On his radio program yesterday, Rush Limbaugh indicated his belief that our country may be trending towards secession by some states.

From the story at Mediaite:

Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday that the U.S. may be “trending toward secession.”

As Limbaugh talked about liberal cities like New York and San Francisco, he took up a question of whether “we can win the culture.”

“I actually think — and I’ve referenced this, I’ve alluded to this a couple of times because I’ve seen others allude to this — I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,” he said.

“I see more and more people asking what in the world do we have in common with the people who live in, say, New York?” Limbaugh asked.

In the segment, first flagged by Media Matters, he said, “A lot of bloggers have written extensively about how distant and separated and how much more separated our culture is becoming politically and that it can’t go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.”

[End]

Rush is generally right, and he may well be right here. This all ties in with my piece from the past weekend titled “How Does America Recover From This? It Doesn’t.”

Past generations of Americans had plenty in common, the most obvious among those things being that we were all Americans and all but a tiny few felt an undying loyalty to this country. That love of country – taught in our schools, in our churches and promoted by the entertainment and news media industries – bound us together. We were Americans and damn proud of it.

But that has all changed in America today, specifically on the radical political leftwing, which now dominates the Democrat Party and its policy pursuits. As I discussed in that piece, our entire system of government and the viability of our constitutional Republic depends on the premise that the vast majority of those who govern us would be people of good will who love this country and are loyal to it. Sadly, that entire premise has now become extremely suspect in the Democrat Party, the party that dominates states like New York, which Rush referred to in that monologue.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having an Eric Swalwell among it, Nancy Pelosi assigns him to serve on the House Intelligence Committee, a post from which he could easily share America’s most tightly held national security secrets to his ChiCom honeypot. Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having a Dianne Feinstein – who employed a ChiCom spy as her chauffer for 20 years – in its midst, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer assign her to serve as the Party’s senior member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having anti-Semitic, America hating members like AOC, Rashida Talib and Ilhan Omar in its midst, it celebrates them, gives them plum committee assignments and affords them heavy influence in the Party’s agenda.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having ChiCom sellouts like Joe and Hunter Biden in its midst, it celebrates them, covers up for them and even rigs its presidential nomination for an elderly, declining lifelong circus clown as a reward.

The abject hatred of America and everything it stands far among those on the radical political left is not only glaringly evident in Congress, we can see it every day rioting in the streets and issuing heinous diatribes on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms. We are at a point in this country where one cannot wear a cap expressing a desire for this country to be great again without being physically assaulted on the streets with the full sanction of many local mayors and the entirety of the corrupt national news media. We are at a point in our country where one risks assault by admitting he or she works in the oil industry or goes to church. We are at a point in our country where major city Democrat mayors like Bill De Blasio feel free to repeatedly attack, chastise and discriminate against Jews and Christians.

What do people in Texas or Oklahoma or North Dakota or Louisiana or Alabama have in common with people in New York or California or Seattle or Portland anymore? Not much, and in very large part, not even love of country.

So, when Rush Limbaugh says he thinks we are trending towards secession, he should be taken seriously.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: CNN Admits the New York Post’s Hunter Biden Reporting Was All True

So, CNN admits that the New York Post’s stories on Hunter Biden’s laptop were 100% accurate, then? – Sure seems like it, anyway. You all remember the New York Post’s original reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop and the contents thereon, correct? Remember how the story was spiked by every major corrupt media outlet in the country? Remember how users at Twitter and all of the other big social media platforms were denied the ability to share it? Remember how the Post’s accounts on Twitter and Facebook were shut down for weeks to prevent the newspaper from sharing any other new reporting on that story?

Yeah, it was all so October, the month before the election, of course.

Anyway, the news-fakers at CNN ran a story of their own yesterday, after the Biden fake president-elect operation revealed that China Joe’s creepy ne’er-do-well son was being investigated by the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office for tax issues. The funny thing is, that CNN story, which came 2 months after the New York Post’s story that was supposedly too toxic to report back in October, essentially confirms every aspect of the Post’s story. But of course, CNN does all of that well after the election has come and gone.

Funny how that works, huh?

I’m not going to excerpt from the CNN story, because to hell with CNN and their compatriots in the corrupt, fake news media. But know that the CNN story also informs us that the FBI and DOJ “paused” their supposed “investigation” of Hunter and his magic laptop throughout the weeks leading up to Election Day because they didn’t want to “influence” the presidential election. Many in the corrupt news media employed the same excuse.

The point here is this: The DOJ and media, by refusing to investigate or report on the laptop DID influence the election, and influenced it massively in Joe Potato Head Biden’s favor.

But that, of course, was the goal. Despicable people.

Speaking of ne’er-do-well Democrats… – It looks like farty Eric Swalwell is lying about his having broken off ties to the ChiCom honeypot with whom he was fooling around and paying back in 2015. From a story at RedState.com:

Swalwell’s defense, as he lays out during the luxurious tongue-bath CNN’s Jim Sciutto offered up, is that he’s had nothing to do with her since she fled back to China in 2015 and, being the patriotic, red-blooded American that he is, Swalwell claims that he has fully cooperated with the FBI and his cooperation was destroyed by the Trump administration who leaked the story of him banging a Chinese spy to the media out of revenge for his key roll in the impeachment fiasco. Or something like that. Swalwell isn’t really smart enough to sound coherent even under the best of circumstances.

That, however, may or may not be the truth.

Oh. Why would a member of congress continue to be friends with a ChiCom spy who got him into a full-blown FBI investigation, five full years after that supposed “investigation” took place? And, why wouldn’t the FBI, if its supposed “investigation” was really on the up and up, be investigating that clearly ongoing relationship between the congressman and the ChiCom spy?

The answers to those questions are a really very obvious, aren’t they? Occam’s Razor really does apply here. Think about it.

Turncoats. Turncoats Everwhere! – Ok, Mitt Romney has never been a real Republican, but President Trump’s ongong challenges  to the obviously-fraudulent election results in five states are really bringing the turncoats out of the weeds now.

Romney is the most prominent among them, because of course he is.:

Then there’s this from regular Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy, who is really getting on board with Paul Ryan’s new “turn hard left” program for the fading fake news channel:

Yes, that would be the “frivolous” Texas lawsuit filed by Texas AG Ken Paxton, the “frivolous” lawsuit that now has 17 other state AG’s signing Amicus briefs supporting it:

Hey, Andy, maybe you should think about standing down on this one.

Speaking of that Texas lawsuit, President Trump yesterday asked Ted Cruz to present the oral arguments related to it before the Supreme Court if the Court agrees to hear the case:

From the story at TheHill:

President Trump has asked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) to present a case from his state’s attorney general seeking to invalidate the election results of several key battleground states before the Supreme Court should it decide to hear the suit, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) seeks to void the vote certifications of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Michigan, arguing that the results are “tainted” by new election processes in those states.

The court has not yet agreed to hear the case on its merits and on Tuesday rejected efforts by pro-Trump attorneys to overturn the results in Pennsylvania in a separate case.

[End]

Texas AG Paxton would need to gain the votes of four of the nine USSC justices in order for the case to receive a full hearing by that body. Given that all of the states that are the subject of the lawsuit clearly violated the constitution by allowing changes to their voting procedures to be made by gubernatorial orders (many of which themselves likely also violate parts of the constitution) or by state courts absent consideration by their state legislatures, it seems likely that the suit will be heard.

If that comes about, Senator Cruz, while serving as Texas’s Deputy AG prior to running for the Senate, argued nine cases before the USSC and won most of them. It would be difficult to find a more effective and experienced advocate for the case, which President Trump also made clear yesterday that his lawyers will support via Amicus briefs.

Very interesting developments all around here.

The face of Mussolini in our time. – Bill de Blasio continued his fascist campaign of discrimination against his city’s Jewish community yesterday:

From a story at DailyWire:

Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned an ultra-Orthodox synagogue in Brooklyn on Tuesday that he will shut them down “once and for all” if they continue to flout his lockdown orders.

During a Tuesday press conference, de Blasio was asked about a large indoor funeral held Monday by Congregation Yetev Lev D’Satmar, a prominent synagogue in Williamsburg that was also recently fined $15,000 for secretly conducting a large indoor wedding in November.

“If we see another confirmed situation in which an inappropriate event is happening in that same building, then we’re going to have to move to shut down the building once and for all,” de Blasio said, according to Gothamist. “That would be the next step if we see non-compliance.”

“I do think there’s an ideological factor that’s making things a lot harder,” de Blasio also said, seeming to imply that the Hasidic community’s continued non-compliance with state and city lockdown orders stems from their widespread support for President Donald Trump.

[End]

Notice all the loaded language being used to refer to the Hasidic Jews: “ultra-orthodox,” “ideological,” “inappropriate,” etc. It’s the very same sort of language pushed by Hitler and Mussolini in the 1930s.

These are very, very frightening times.

DOJ Supposedly “Investigating” Hunter Biden’s Taxes. Yeah, Sure It Is.

It turns out that when you rake in millions from the ChiComs and crooked Ukrainian gas companies and don’t properly report it to the IRS, it actually raises some eyebrows. – Who could have known that? Certainly not Hunter Biden, who no doubt has just assumed that the fact that his Pop (you know, The Big Guy) is a card-carrying member of the DC Swamp, he’s grandfathered in under that same umbrella and thus immune to any action being taken against him by our fat, lazy Attorney General, William Barr and his do-nothing Department of Justice.

And hey, no one should get too excited about it, because it’s probably all just for show, but ne’er-do-well Hunter tweeted out a statement today announcing that he has been formally notified that he is under investigation by the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office over his tax affairs:

How about that? Naturally, the DOJ’s slow-footed action here comes far too late to save the nation from a four-year term in the Oval Office by Hunter’s ChiCom sellout, mentally addled old geezer Pop (aka, The Big Guy), because that’s just how things happen in the DC Swamp.

From a story at USA Today:

President-elect Joe Biden’s transition announced Wednesday that his son, Hunter, is being investigated for his taxes by the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware.

Hunter Biden was the focus of Republican complaints during the campaign for business dealings with Ukraine and China. But Hunter Biden hasn’t been charged and two Republican-led congressional committees in September found no wrongdoing by Joe Biden.

Political adversaries including President Donald Trump accused the former vice president of benefitting from his son’s business. But Joe Biden denied any illegal or unethical dealings with his son.

Hunter Biden said Wednesday that he learned Tuesday that federal prosecutors are investigating his tax affairs.

Hunter Biden waits for the start of his father's debate in October 2011 at Centre College in Danville, Ky.

“I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors,” Hunter Biden said in a statement.

Biden’s transition office said in a statement that the president-elect “is deeply proud of my son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.”

[End]

Hooboy. What a load of rank, smelly, fresh horse manure that last statement is. But hey, it was written by a team of Democrat message monkeys, so what else would we expect?

That is all.

Don’t Get Excited About Rumors That The FBI is Investigating Hunter Biden

So, what about this FBI “investigation” into Hunter Biden’s laptop? – Lots of rumors have been flying around the past few days about the FBI supposedly conducting at least one, and possibly multiple investigations into the various crimes of Hunter Biden and the entire Biden family.

One rumor was started Friday by Sinclair reporter James Rosen:

So, the FBI questioned Bobulinski – as I reported here on Friday – pre-empting his scheduled testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee. They were interested and took notes. Cool. That adds some fuel to the previous rumor, reported by Adam Housley and others,  that the FBI has had an ongoing “money laundering” investigation related to the laptop since last December, when they came into possession of it:

Those rumors in turn have led to even jucier rumors, fed by the fact that no one has seen Hunter Biden in public since the New York Post broke the story about his laptop two weeks ago. Here’s one of them:

No description available.

Well, the Friday when Barr was supposed to meet with the Unfrozen Caveman Candidate has come and gone and the only noticeable change in Biden’s behavior is that he’s gotten out of the basement more often since then. I’m not sure that gives us much of a signal, does it?

Ok, so, what does any of this mean in terms of the FBI’s goals?  Well, think about it: Do you really think it would take the FBI 11 months to mount a case against Hunter Biden, whose laptop apparently contains all manner of child porn and emails evidencing all manner of crimes involving not only himself, but a major candidate for the presidency, if they were serious about arresting him and having the DOJ prosecute him for anything?

Please. They were sitting on this ticking time bomb, plain and simple, hoping against hope that Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester wins the election so they could toss the damn thing in the garbage bin and forget about it.

But now the goal has probably changed slightly given that pretty much every person in America understands that Biden is suffering from advancing dementia and really is not fit to hold the office. If the FBI really is focused on investigating this stuff all of a sudden, what it most likely means is that Christopher Wray is doing the bidding of the DNC like he always does and has his agents working on this in order to set up a predicate for removing Biden from office should he win the election.

Kamala Harris always has been and remains the Democrat Party’s preferred candidate in this election. They forced her onto the Biden ticket, don’t kid yourselves otherwise. There is not a chance in hell that Biden himself would have voluntarily chosen the woman who tarred him as a racist on national television during last fall’s debate.

So, come next February, just as Biden’s had enough time to change the draperies in the Oval Office, he’ll be presented with a choice: Resign due to very real and obvious health issues, or be impeached with evidence compiled by the FBI.

Biden is the ultimate Swamp creature, an inhabitant of it for 47 long years. When it comes to to dealing with Swamp creatures, the FBI and DOJ are not in any way, shape or form interested in exacting “justice.” All they are about in those cases is the accumulation of information to be dispensed by their friends as political leverage. Because political leverage = power in Washington DC.

Look, I’d love as much as anyone to believe that Christopher Wray has suddenly found Jesus and assigned an army of intrepid, all-American FBI agents to get to the bottom of everything the Biden Crime Family has been doing to sell out our country. The problem with believing that is that there is literally nothing in the Bureau’s pattern of behavior under Wray – or under his two immediate predecessors, Comey and Mueller – that would lend a shred of support for making such an assumption.

So, don’t get excited about these rumors that the FBI is “investigating” Hunter Biden. Because, if they really are doing that, it is highly likely that they aren’t doing it for you, they’re doing it for themselves and their political masters.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Pelosi Toadies for Iran and the Media Toadying for Biden is Nothing New

Here is the genius of President Donald Trump and his administration: They now have the Democrats sticking up for Iran. – No kidding, take a look at what San Fran Nan had to say yesterday in response to the joint press conference by DNI John Ratcliffe and worthless FBI Director Christopher Wray that both Iran and Russia are trying to interfere in this election:

“Iran is a bad actor, but in no way equivalent [to Russia].”

How pathetically un-American is that? But that is where the Democrats feel they need to go in order to keep pushing their “Russia Russia Russia” attack narrative against the President of the United States.

Genius.

And speaking of pathetic Democrats… – In case you missed it due to the media blackout, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett yesterday in a vote that was both along party lines and unanimous. That’s because the petulant Democrat members of the committee all boycotted the committee meeting.

It just don’t get any more pathetic than that, folks.

And now, a bit of wonderful trivia from our “HO-LEE-CRAP” file… – Rasmussen reports tweets out the fact that Black voters’ approval of President Trump rose to…wait for it… 46%[!!!!] in its latest daily survey:

My goodness. Obviously, job approval doesn’t necessarily translate into outright votes, but if the President’s share of the Black vote amounts to 1/3rd of that in this election, it will produce an unprecedented Red Wave election on November 3.

Hey, maybe this has something to do with it. – The Washington Examiner reports this morning that the rate of imprisonment for the Black community under Donald Trump’s presidency is the lowest it has been in 31 years. Equally as compelling, the rate of Hispanic incarceration is down by 24%.

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

America’s imprisonment rate has dropped to its lowest level since 1995, led by a dive in the percentage of blacks and Hispanics sent to jail during the Trump administration, according to a new Justice tally.

For minorities, the focus of President Trump’s First Step Act prison and criminal reform plan, the rate is the lowest in years.

For blacks, the imprisonment rate in state and federal prisons is the lowest in 31 years and for Hispanics it is down 24%.

“Across the decade from 2009 to 2019, the imprisonment rate fell 29% among black residents, 24% among Hispanic residents and 12% among white residents. In 2019, the imprisonment rate of black residents was the lowest it has been in 30 years, since 1989,” said the report.

Screen Shot 2020-10-23 at 8.10.45 AM.png

Bureau of Justice Statistics

 

Explaining the rate, Justice said, “At year-end 2019, there were 1,096 sentenced black prisoners per 100,000 black residents, 525 sentenced Hispanic prisoners per 100,000 Hispanic residents and 214 sentenced white prisoners per 100,000 white residents in the U.S. Among sentenced state prisoners at year-end 2018 (the most recent data available), a larger percentage of black (62%) and Hispanic (62%) prisoners than white prisoners (48%) were serving time for a violent offense.”

[End]

Oh. That’s some news you will never, never, ever see reported on CNN or MSNBC.

What if you give a press conference and the “press” refuses to show? – Former Hunter Biden/Joe Biden “business” partner Tony Bobulinski found out the hard way when he held a presser right before last night’s debate. Very predictably, almost nobody other than OANN and Fox News showed up.

Here is Ted Cruz excoriating the corrupt news media for its latest bit of malfeasance:

“It’s part of a pattern that we saw last week when the New York Post broke this story, and Big Tech – Twitter and Facebook – censored it, and essentially determined that the American people could not even hear the facts. I think the degree to which the media and Big Tech are shilling for Joe Biden, are protecting him, are covering him up and not even asking these questions, I think it’s really shameful.”

Yep, it really is, Senator.

But, while this current episode of the media shilling for the Democrats seems fresh and new to us in real-time, we should all remember that this really is not new behavior by our corrupt, worthless national news media. They’ve been doing this stuff for Democrats forever.

Go back to October 1919, and Woodrow Wilson’s stroke that left him incapacitated. Wilson’s wife essentially ran the government from then all the way through early 1921, and the pubic didn’t find out the truth for decades. Same with Franklin Roosevelt and his wheelchair. The media covered up that disability for decades. Same with John F. Kennedy’s massive drug abuse and affairs with the girlfriends of mob bosses and Russian spies, not to mention Marilyn Monroe. We didn’t find out about any of that stuff until 20-30 years later.

Remember how the Washington Post and Newsweek sat on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky story for months, and would have buried it altogether were it not for the fact that Matt Drudge decided to run with it on his then-fledgling website. And let’s not forget the solid wall of Omerta the media put up on behalf of the utterly despicable John Edwards and his fathering of an illegitimate child during the early phase 2008 presidential campaign.

This has been going on forever, folks. Our national news media has been rank, smelly, lying garbage for decades. It just seems new now because the fresh layer of rank, smelly garbage consisting of Twitter and Facebook has been layered over the top of it.

Look who thought President Trump won the debate last night:

Megyn Kelly is right: Trump won the debate handily. I explain my reasoning fully in another piece this morning. Go read it. Now.

Wednesday News Roundup: The Biden Influence Racket Toothpaste Oozes Out of the Tube

Another game-changer from the Trump Campaign. – At a massive rally in Eerie, PA last night, the Trump Campaign rolled out a big surprise for the Quid Pro China Joe Biden campaign: A huge video screen on which the President played a compilation of all the times Biden and his designated successor-in-waiting, Kamala Harris, promised to ban fracking in the United States.

Image

It was a pretty long video clip, and those were just the times they promised to kill America’s oil and gas industry while on live TV. Think of all the times they’ve made the same promise in private, at big fundraisers, meetings with Ukrainian and Russian oil and gas company oligarchs and Chinese money men.

Hooboy.

This, of course, is a very big deal in Pennsylvania, home to the giant Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale formations, and the hub of a region that has become the largest natural gas producer in the world. With real polls now showing the state dead-even – which means that Trump is 2-4 points ahead because even the real polls can’t fully account for the shy Trump vote phenomenon – learning the truth about the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign’s true intent to destroy millions of oil and gas-supported jobs in the U.S. could be a death knell for the Democrat effort.

And trust me, there are plenty of death knells flying around already for the Campaign That Never Was while Sleepy Creepy Uncle McNastyFinger remains holed up in his basement hooked up to his trusty IV all week.

Take this one, for instance: Rudy Giuliani confirmed on NewsMax TV last night that he has taken a copy of the laptop’s hard drive to local Wilmington, Delaware law enforcement officials and filed a complaint of child endangerment against Hunter Biden based on the contents of the drive. Giuliani, supported by ex-New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, says the content show Hunter Biden engaging with an inappropriate relationship with a 14 year-old girl who may be his own cousin.

Here’s an excerpt from the NewsMax TV story:

Rudy Giuliani is blowing the lid off the fast-growing Hunter Biden scandal, telling Newsmax TV‘s Greg Kelly on Tuesday night that he met with Delaware State Police this week over shocking materials found on the alleged hard drive of Hunter Biden.

Giuliani said his discoveries go well beyond influence peddling with foreign powers and alleged kickbacks he has accused former Vice President Joe Biden of engaging in.

“This is a really very, very sensitive one,” Giuliani told “Greg Kelly Reports,” referring to a text conversation he claims took place between Hunter and his father Joe Biden.

“There’s a sexual depravity to this that’s disgusting,” he said.

Giuliani alleges the text message and photos involve an unnamed 14-year-old girl.

The former New York City mayor provided Newsmax TV with a photo image of the text message which he said shows Hunter Biden’s message to his father, discussing claims he had acted inappropriately around a younger female.

The purported message stated:

“She she told my therapist that I was sexually inappropriate with [redacted] when she says that I face time naked with her and the reason I can’t have her out to see me is because I’ll walk around naked … When she was pressed she said that [redacted] never said anything like that but the bottom line is that I create and caused

“A very unsafe environment for the kids

“If it stopped there I would let it go”

Giuliani also claimed there were numerous pictures of underage girls on the Hunter Biden hard drive.

[End]

Oh. A crackhead who preyed on his dead brother’s wife and fathered an illegitimate child with a stripper in an “inappropriate relationship” with a 14 year-old girl? So hard to believe, right?

Certainly, it’s hard for the corrupt mainstream news media to believe, although Newsweek did carry a slanted report on the matter last night.

But here is a death knell even some in the corrupt mainstream media can’t ignore. – After the FBI and Justice Department confirmed DNI John Ratcliffe’s statement that the Hunter Biden laptop is real and not in any way related to a “Russian disinformation” operation, as the media has uniformly tried to claim based on zero evidence, both Catherine Herridge and Major Garrett at CBS News actually decided to summon up the integrity to report on the matter:

Thus, the corrupt mainstream media’s wall of Omerta on the subject has been breached. Only time will tell whether this hole in the dike will eventually turn into a flood of fake reporting from the likes of the New York Times and Washington Post, but it doesn’t really matter. Probably well over half of the U.S. voting-age public is now aware of Hunter Biden’s laptop  and the very real, bombshell information it contains about the lucrative, mob-like influence racket he ran while Dear Ol’ Dad was Barack Hussein Obama’s vice president.

Sean Hannity Attacks Joe Biden With 'Crime Family' Graphic

The question now becomes whether NBC’s Kristen Welker, the fake reporter Democrat operative who will “moderate” Thursday’s fake debate, will summon a rare moment of journalistic ethics and intellectual curiosity and force Uncle Joe McWifeMolester to field an actual question about all of this. Given Welker’s history, you should not hold your breath waiting for that to happen.

Many are thinking that President Trump will have all sorts of opportunity during his own speaking time tomorrow night to hit Biden with this stuff, but that is not correct. You can bet your bottom dollar that Welker will be fully prepared to interrupt the President, talk over him, shift the subject and even hit the mute button anytime he starts down that road. In these sham debates, the Republican candidate never has uninterrupted time to speak.

Now, that in and of itself will certainly create bad optics for both Welker and Biden, but the tactic will allow Biden to avoid giving anything resembling a real answer to the core question: Did he sell his office in order to become fabulously wealthy?

Clearly the answer to that question is a resounding ‘yes,’ but if you’re expecting the debate to serve as the vehicle for getting to that answer, you are going to come away disappointed.

But in the end it won’t matter: This gooey, nasty toothpaste is now out of the tube, and nothing the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign does to avoid it or shift the subject is going to jam it back in.

And that, friends and enemies, is absolutely glorious.

Sen. Ron Johnson: Much, Much More to Come From The Hunter Biden Laptop

Man, no wonder Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg are so anxious to censor the reporting about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop. As if the emails revealing Hunter and then-vice-president Joe Biden’s influence peddling racket vis a vis Ukraine and China (and more countries yet to be revealed) weren’t enough, we found out on Saturday that the contents of the laptop are being reviewed by an FBI lawyer who specializes in prosecuting purveyors of child pornography.

On Saturday, this photo of a federal grand jury subpoena issued last December began making the rounds on social media:

Though it was covered up by the top page, the signature of FBI lawyer Joshua Wilson can be seen bleeding through the thin paper. Business Insider was able to confirm that the signature matched that of New Jersey-based FBI agent Joshua Wilson that was contained on a similar subpoena issued in a different case in 2012:

In 2012, Wilson was described by The Star-Ledger, a New Jersey-based newspaper, as “an FBI agent based in New Jersey who has spent nearly five years working full time on child pornography.” (More recent news articles suggest Wilson has also worked child abduction cases.)

A child pornography criminal complaint from 2012 includes Wilson’s signature — seemingly an exact match to what was found on the December subpoena.

[End]

Oh.

So, why is the FBI investigating the laptop for possible child porn images? It’s a good question, and those who have actually seen the laptop’s contents, like Rudy Giuliani, have alleged that that kind of filth might well be present there.

In an interesting development, Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, appeared today on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” program with host Maria Bartiromo. During an exchange with Bartiromo regarding this piece of the investigation, Sen. Johnson didn’t exactly confirm that that was taking place, but he also didn’t even come close to denying it.

Here’s a transcript of that exchange:

Bartiromo: Connect the dots, if an FBI agent is working on child pornography issues for five years why is he subpoenaing the laptop of Hunter Biden? Is there a connection here? Should this suggest that there is a child pornography issue here on that laptop?

Johnson: Well, I think you just made a connection. This is what the FBI has to come clean about. This isn’t a standard investigation where the FBI doesn’t indict somebody and everything remains confidential. This is something that we were talking about that relates to national security. If there is criminal activity involved that is tied to Hunter Biden or his business associates or even possible ties to other members of the Biden family that some of these emails indicate that Joe Biden is fully aware of this, that he was taking his 10% cut or requiring 50% from his family members’ salaries, this needs to be known before Americans go to the polls.

Bartiromo: So was the FBI agent serving the subpoena investigating child pornography, senator?

Senator Ron Johnson: Well, you just read the news report. I can’t comment any further. I don’t want to speculate other than to say that what I said publicly before. Our report uncovered several troubling connections, so many things that need to be investigated that I really think we’re just scratching the surface. Yes, I’ve heard all kinds of things that I think will probably be revealed over the next few days. There’s a treasure trove of emails and video and pictures. Not only in the purported computer of Hunter Biden but now we got the co-conspirator Bevan Cooney that’s also starting to reveal information. I guess we’ll find new information over the next couple of weeks.

[End]

Notably, the Senator also confirms that, as Breitbart reported on Friday, the investigation is benefitting from the cooperation of Hunter Biden co-conspirator Bevan Cooney, an ex-“business partner” of the Bidens who has now flipped and is cooperating.

From that Brietbart report:

Newly obtained emails from a Hunter Biden business partner lay out in detail how the Vice President’s son and his colleagues used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for potential foreign clients and investors at the highest levels in the White House. These never-before-revealed emails outline how a delegation of Chinese investors and Communist Party officials managed to secure a private, off-the-books meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden.

In a 2011 email, Hunter Biden’s business associates also discussed developing relations with what one called “China Inc.” as part of a “new push on soft diplomacy for the Chinese.” These emails are completely unconnected to the Hunter Biden emails being released by the New York Post.

These and more explosive never-before-revealed emails were provided to Schweizer by Bevan Cooney, a one-time Hunter Biden and Devon Archer business associate. Cooney is currently in prison serving a sentence for his involvement in a 2016 bond fraud investment scheme.

In 2019, Cooney reached out to Schweizer after becoming familiar with the revelations in his 2018 book Secret Empires. Cooney explained that he believes he was the “fall guy” for the fraud scheme and that Archer and Hunter Biden had avoided responsibility.

[End]

If any of you have been harboring the notion that the Bidens have seen the worst of this scandal, think again. There is so much more yet to come.

Isn’t that glorious?

Saturday News Roundup: Why Christopher Wray Sat on Hunter Biden’s Laptop for 10 Months

Christopher Wray is not part of the solution for our country – he’s the problem. – 19 Republican members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to corrupt, worthless FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday, demanding he come clean on why his dumpster fire agency never revealed that it came into possession of the Hunter Biden laptop last December, while President Trump was being subjected to the Democrat Party’s impeachment hoax.

Here’s the letter:

Image

We speculated here throughout that impeachment hoax that the real reason it was being mounted was as a massive effort by the Democrats and their media toadies to try to inoculate Joe Biden for his years of corruption related to Ukraine by projecting his crimes onto President Trump. The contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop prove conclusively that that speculation was in fact true.

That Wray and his fellow bureaucrats at the Hoover Building chose to withhold all of this key information from the public during a national crisis that was completely faked up by the Democrats is the height of corruption in public office, and a very blatant case of obstruction of justice. It isn’t just a crime against President Trump; it’s a crime against everyone in this country, and it simply must be punished.

Unfortunately, it has become crystal clear that we can’t count on Attorney General William Barr to do anything about it, as he has consistently made it obvious he is a big fan of Wray. Wray is one of the DC Swamp’s protected class, after all, and members of that class never have to worry about being held accountable.

What we also see in these revelations about the Biden family’s influence selling game is the very reason why Joe Biden has mounted this run for the presidency at such an advanced age. Winning this election, after all, is the only way he can ensure that all of his crimes against this country, the Ukraine, China, Russia and no doubt many more end up being buried and lost forever.

Think about it: Could Biden trust any of the 25 or so other Democrats running in the primaries to execute a 100% coverup of all of this wrongdoing were they to win the presidency? Could he trust them to do so without first exacting some patronage of their own out of the Biden family’s accumulated fortune? Of course he couldn’t.

Add to that the fact that it is not just the Bidens who are in jeopardy here. Members of families with names like Kerry and Pelosi and Feinstein and Clinton and even Romney have also snuggled up to corrupt foreign companies like Burisma in recent years and held similar positions like those Hunter was entangled in. Those families and many others we don’t know about yet are desperate to prevent a second Trump term in office.

I’ve asked this question often and it is completely relevant to this situation: How do you think these congressmen and senators, who spend their entire adult lives in public office, never making more than $200,000 per year in official salary, become so fabulously wealthy? Do you think it’s just because they contribute their $24,000 per year to their government retirement funds and then invest it wisely?

Joe Biden – or “middle class Joe” as he likes to be called – owns several multi-million dollar homes. Here’s a photo of one of them:

Joe purchased this property after his wife Neilia passed

Here’s an aerial shot of another one:

Biden and Jill's mansion in the Wilmington suburb

Here’s his “beach house”:

The Biden's beach property in Delaware

That’s at least $15 to $20 million worth of real estate right there, folks, and those are just the Biden-owned homes we know about. Do you really think he was able to pay for all of this on his senator/vice president salary?

Now, realize that we could go through pretty much the same exercise with most other senators who have served more than 1 or 2 terms in office and risen to key committee positions and other positions of influence. If you’re looking for a Republican, do a little research on the McCain family and see the tens of millions of dollars worth of assets he managed to somehow accumulate over his 30+ years in the senate.

That’s what’s at stake here. It’s not just the millions of dollars – or probably billions of dollars all told – that’s at stake: It’s the personal reputations of all of these prominent members of the DC Swamp protected class that’s up for grabs in this election. It’s also the reputations of all of the corrupt media figures who have served as their willing co-conspirators for all of these decades, protecting them and their way of life every step of the way.

And then there are the K-Street lobbyists who wrote all the bills that made those senators famous. You think that class isn’t a part of the scam? Please.

Which is why you don’t see a single one of those people, Republican or Democrat, actively working for this President’s re-election.

Every bit of this, the reputations of  all of these powerful people who need protection, revolves around the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop. And now you know why Christopher Wray and his dumpster fire agency sat on that laptop for the last 10 months.

It’ really isn’t even complicated.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Steve Scully, Joe Biden, Facebook and Twitter – So Many Liars, So Little Time

You don’t sayyyyyyyyyy. – Former Biden intern Steve Scully, who was selected by the anti-Trump Commission on Presidential Debates was suspended “indefinitely” by his employer C-Span yesterday after he was forced to admit that his claim that his Twitter account had been “hacked” was exactly what we all knew it was: A very transparent lie.

From a report by the Associated Press:

C-SPAN suspended its political editor Steve Scully indefinitely Thursday after he admitted to lying about his Twitter feed being hacked when he was confronted about a questionable exchange with former Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci.

The news came on the day of what was supposed to be a career highlight for the 30-year C-SPAN veteran. Scully was to moderate the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, which was canceled after Trump would not agree to a virtual format because of his COVID-19 diagnosis.

A week ago, after Trump had criticized him as a “never Trumper,” Scully tweeted “@Scaramucci should I respond to Trump.” Scaramucci, a former Trump communications director and now a critic of the president, advised Scully to ignore him.

Scully said that when he saw his tweet had created a controversy, “I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked.”

[End]

Well, knock me over with a feather.

Oh, this’ll make it all better, y’all! – Twitter’s “lead” for policy and lots of other stuff, some SJW named Vijaya Gadde, put up a big long thread last night – after Twitter’s entire platform had gone down for a couple of hours – claiming that she and her company were changing their “hacked materials policy”:

There are 8 more tweets in that thread, but I’m not going to re-post them here.

Here is all you need to know about this: Nobody has alleged that the materials that form the basis for the bombshell New York Post reports on Joe and Hunter Biden’s influence scam related to Ukraine and China were “hacked.” The Biden Campaign does not even make that absurd, ridiculous, despicably false claim. The emails were obviously not “hacked,” and everyone knows it.

Twitter and Facebook are not enforcing any sort of real “policies” here. They are quite simply engaging in Big Brother censorship on behalf of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign. Period. And for that action, both platforms should immediately lose their protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, and the FCC and Justice Department should start taking actions under the nation’s communications and anti-trust laws to break them up. Period.

Interestingly, Twitter’s global “outage” took place right after it was announced that it would be getting a subpoena from the Senate Judiciary Committee demanding that its CEO, Jack Dorsey, show up and testify under oath next Friday about his company’s lurch into undisguised censorship and interference in a presidential election. That subpoena was demanded by GOP Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley. Why it does not also include Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s name is a real mystery.

Interestingly, pretty much all other GOP senators have remained studiously silent on the matter, conclusively proving how worthless they are in a real crisis for our Republic. Some things never change.

Writing at the Washington Examiner, Byron York reminds us that, while the social media censorship angle is crucial, it is also key to remember the essence of the corruption that the Biden family was engaged in:

Now, the Post has published an email, reported to be from a Burisma executive to Hunter Biden. The Post says it was sent on April 17, 2015, when Joe Biden was vice president and Hunter Biden was on Burisma’s board. “Dear Hunter,” the executive, Vadym Pozharskyi, wrote, “thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”

Democrats and Biden’s partisans in the press pushed back ferociously. It’s Russian disinformation, they claimed, without any specific knowledge that it was Russian disinformation. Facebook limited the distribution of the Post story. Twitter banned it altogether. All of this was done before anyone made any serious attempt to confirm the allegation.

The Biden campaign denied it all. “The New York Post never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story,” spokesman Andrew Bates said. “They certainly never raised that Rudy Giuliani — whose discredited conspiracy theories and alliance with figures connected to Russian intelligence have been widely reported — claimed to have such materials. Moreover, we have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”

The last sentence is what matters. With it, the Biden campaign seemed to be flatly denying that Hunter Biden introduced Pozharskyi to Vice President Biden. Of course, one could parse the meaning. For example, the statement referred only to Biden’s “official schedules.” There could not have been some sort of unofficial introduction, could there? And the statement said that no meeting “as alleged by the New York Post” ever took place. There could not have been some sort of introduction that did not fit the allegation in the Post, could there? Certainly the Biden campaign would not make a lawyerly, evasive statement like that, would it?

[End]

Well, of course the Biden campaign would “make a lawyerly, evasive statement.” It’s all they got, because the Post stories are 100% true, and they are just the tip of a very large and disgusting iceberg.

Meanwhile, here is what New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has law enforcement officials in New York doing to the state’s Jewish community:

Just a reminder that our country is in so many ways right about where Germany was in early 1938, and if we return the Democrat Party to national power, we’ll be right at “invasion of Poland” time in a blink.

That is all.

Dueling Townhalls Put Classic Media Corruption on Display

All you need to know about last night’s dueling townhalls on ABC and NBC with Joe Biden and President Trump is that Biden was not asked a single question about the New York Post’s bombshell reporting on his and Hunter Biden’s blatant selling of his vice-presidential office to China and Ukraine, and that Savannah Guthrie came at the President of the United States like a screaming banshee who desperately needed a valium or three.

Image may contain: one or more people and text

No one should have expected anything else.

After all, Biden’s puffball hour was conducted by a former Clinton bagman, George Stephanopoulous, and Guthrie is just another Democrat activist employed by a mainstream media outlet. This of course makes them both logical choices to “moderate” presidential debates in the eyes of the Commission that governs those atrocities, which tells you all you need to know about the Commission. The fact that these competing events replaced what was to have been a second presidential debate moderated by a former intern for Biden was just perfect. The only real difference was the presence of two fake moderators in the tank for the Democrat instead of one.

The fact that Guthrie opened her Gestapo-like interrogation (the only thing missing from the scene was an uncovered light bulb hanging from a wire between the two) with a frenzied effort to force the President to denounce QAnon was also very telling. QAnon is something that maybe 1/10th of 1 percent of the U.S. population has even heard of, and only a tiny fraction of that tiny fraction have any understanding of what it actually is.

Yet, this is what is right at the top of Guthrie’s tiny mind, out-weighing all other issues of the day? Think about why that might be the case, especially in light of the President’s perfect answer that the group is “very much opposed to pedophilia.” You can imagine thousands of viewers hearing about the group for the first time listening to the President’s answer and thinking, “Oh.”

Meanwhile, as Biden was able to provide leisurely non-answers to Stephanopoulous without follow-up on ABC, Guthrie was interrupting the President dozens of times, not allowing him to complete a single answer to any of her questions. So, just like Chris Wallace’s tactic during the first presidential debate.

Here’s a supercut:

We have witnessed this kind of irrational behavior from media figures towards Republicans for decades now, and it remains a mystery what they believe in their own minds that it gains them, other than ensuring they continue to get invited to Jeff Zucker’s or Mike Bloomberg’s swanky parties. Guthrie’s obvious goal was to somehow damage the President, but the more likely consequence of her behavior last night will be that her morning show will continue to bleed viewership as anyone with a fair mind would have to conclude that she is untrustworthy and frankly irrational.

As for Stephanopoulous, the failure to ask about the Hunter Biden scandals and to press Biden for a real answer on packing the Supreme Court represent his usual failure to engage in anything approaching actual journalism. But then, he’s not a journalist in any sense of that word, so again, what else would we expect?

In the end, Buck Sexton summed it up perfectly on his Twitter feed:

“All you have to do is stop thinking of the media as “journalists” who “speak truth to power” and start thinking of them as pro bono lawyers working for the Biden campaign who will hide and destroy evidence for their client, and everything makes sense very quickly”.

Exactly.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: The Entire Biden Family is Utterly Corrupt

Since Twitter and Facebook are censoring the New York Post’s bombshell stories on Hunter and Joe Biden and their corrupt activities in Ukraine and China, we will focus today’s Roundup on the Post’s new story detailing the Bidens’ looting of China for personal gain.

Here is an excerpt from today’s Post headliner:

Hunter Biden pursued lucrative deals involving China’s largest private energy company — including one that he said would be “interesting for me and my family,” emails obtained by The Post show.

One email sent to Biden on May 13, 2017, with the subject line “Expectations,” included details of “remuneration packages” for six people involved in an unspecified business venture.

Biden was identified as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,” an apparent reference to the former Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy Co.

His pay was pegged at “850” and the email also noted that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.”

In addition, the email outlined a “provisional agreement” under which 80 percent of the “equity,” or shares in the new company, would be split equally among four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with “H” apparently referring to Biden.

Enlarge ImageEmail showing 'great expectations.'

The deal also listed “10 Jim” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”

Neither Jim nor the “big guy” was identified further.

[End]

Now, who do you suppose the “big guy” in this deal is? It isn’t hard to figure out.

It’s interesting to note that the Chinese energy company partnering with the Bidens in this scam went bankrupt earlier this year, and its chairman has conveniently disappeared. Funny how that happens, huh? Also interesting is the fact that this scheme resulted in the formation of a shell firm called “Hudson West” under which the Chinese interests created a large slush fund that allowed not just Hunter and Joe Biden access, but also Hunter’s uncle James Biden and his wife Sara.

It’s all in the family time in this deal. The whole. Damn. Family. is utterly corrupt. If Biden is elected, China wins without firing a shot. It’s that simple.

If you have missed out on the details surrounding the Bidens’ activities related to Ukraine and China, Tucker Carlson provided a fantastic overview of the entire story to open his show last night:

Watch it – it will be the best 10 minutes of time you invest today.

For those who prefer to read, here is a transcript:

Most of us never imagined it could happen in this country, and yet Wednesday, it did happen.

major American newspaper published a story, apparently an entirely accurate story, about a presidential candidate. The tech monopolies that control American media feared this story might hurt that candidate, whom they favor. So three weeks before a national election, they shut the whole thing down.

They prevented the public from reading the news. They didn’t apologize for doing this. They didn’t bother to make up reasonable-sounding justifications for it. They just did it, exactly as the Chinese government does. These are monopolies. They have all the power, you have none. They don’t have to care about what you think and they don’t.

This was mass censorship on a scale that America has never experienced in 245 years, and it’s a threat to all of us. Democracies only function when there is a free exchange of information between citizens. We no longer have that.

This is a dark moment. Here are the details:

Wednesday morning, the New York Post published a series of emails that describe Hunter Biden’s lucrative relationship with a Ukrainian energy company called Burisma, and then describe how his father, then the vice president of the United States, intervened to help his son peddle influence.

Now, we’ve known the outlines of this story for quite some time. But these emails add damning detail. No one appears to dispute that they’re real, not even the Joe Biden campaign. There are whispers that it’s all part of a Russian disinformation campaign. If this is a hoax, it is the most complex, sophisticated hoax ever perpetrated. It doesn’t seem possible. There’s too much detail.

These e-mails came from an Apple laptop that was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop last year and then abandoned there. After a certain number of days with no payment, the shop’s owner took legal possession of the laptop. When he looked inside, he found tens of thousands of emails, including exchanges with representatives of foreign companies and foreign governments. The laptop apparently belonged to Hunter Biden.

The shop owner was stunned by this, by the appearance of corruption, and he was afraid for his family. So late last year, he gave the laptop to the FBI and kept a copy of the hard drive for himself. He never heard back from the FBI. By May, he was anxious. So he made overtures to Senator Mike Lee’s office and at least one conservative nonprofit, but no one responded. Finally, the man contacted Rudy Giuliani’s office. And Wednesday’s story is the result of that.

The tech monopolies crushed the story the moment it appeared. An executive at Facebook called Andy Stone, a former Democratic staffer, announced that his company would censor the New York Post story. As he put it, Facebook would be “reducing its distribution on our platform.”

Twitter quickly followed suit by locking the New York Post’s entire Twitter account. One of the biggest newspapers in the world was banned from Twitter, which then prevented its users from sharing the story, both privately and publicly. Those who tried to share it got this message: “Your tweet couldn’t be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”

In a separate explanation, Twitter wrote this: “We don’t permit the use of our services to directly distribute content obtained through hacking that contains private information, may put people in physical harm or danger, or contains trade secrets.”

That’s the same Twitter that just promoted a New York Times story about the president’s private tax returns, obviously obtained illegally. And who, by the way, was hacked here? No one was hacked. Twitter never addressed that. As for “trade secrets,” there were none. We already knew that Hunter Biden was trading on his father’s office to make $50,000 a month from the Ukrainians. In October, he admitted it.

So we knew the outlines. What we didn’t know until Wednesday was how brazen this was. Hunter Biden didn’t simply sell access to his father, the vice president, or take cash to influence American foreign policy. It’s weirder than that.

As he schemed to extract more money from Burisma, Biden didn’t refer to his father as his father. He referred to Joe Biden, the vice president, as “my guy.” On April 13, 2014, for example, Hunter Biden wrote to his business partner, “The announcement of my guy’s upcoming travels should be characterized as part of our advice and thinking.” Hunter Biden added that he needed to be “protected financially” and wanted a long term role with Burisma: “The contract should begin now – not after the upcoming visit of my guy. That should include a retainer in the range of 25k”.

It’s not clear if Biden got that retainer. But we know he did get a high-paying job at Burisma. Then in May 2014, just weeks after Hunter Biden joined the board of that company, a top executive there let him know explicitly why he was being paid: “We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message/signal, etc., to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions.”

What message does that mean? Well, another e-mail from the same executive obtained by The New York Post and dated April 17, 2015, explains in very clear terms what it means.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC [sic] and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”

That’s what you’re not allowed to read. And you can see why Facebook and Twitter don’t want to allow you to read it. If Joe Biden met with Burisma executives at the request of his son for the profit of his own family, it becomes very clear that Joe Biden’s previous denials were lies. Just last year, Joe Biden was telling us he had no idea what his son was doing it for Burisma.

BIDEN, speaking in January 2018: I had gotten a commitment from [then-Ukraine President Petro] Poroshenko and from [then-Prime Minister Arseniy] Yatseniuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor, and they didn’t … They were walking out to the press conference and I said … ‘We’re not going to give you the billion dollars.’ They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the president, the president said –‘ I said, ‘Call him.’ I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here’ — I think it was what, six hours? … I said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours and if the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.

Why is the vice president of the United States firing prosecutors in Ukraine? Pause for a moment and ask yourself that. That’s bizarre behavior. It doesn’t help the United States in any way. Why was he doing that at the time?

Biden’s handlers deny there’s anything wrong with this. They just said Shokin was corrupt and somehow the world was benefitting by Shokin getting fired. Biden didn’t explain how he’d benefit from that. But, of course, Joe Biden didn’t do it for his son. He didn’t know anything about Burisma. He didn’t know what Hunter Biden was up to.

Then last October, we showed you a photograph of Joe and Hunter Biden golfing with a man called Devon Archer, a board member of Burisma and Hunter Biden’s business partner. The Biden campaign never explained that photograph. Rather than following up, our media rushed to Joe Biden’s defense in the same way they’re now rushing to bury the New York Post story.

In December, a voter in Iowa tried to ask Joe Biden about Burisma and his fitness for office. Joe Biden lost control of himself. He called the man “fat” and then challenged him to a push-up contest.

You might be wondering what Joe Biden thinks of all this. Unfortunately, his campaign called a lid before noon Wednesday. That meant reporters couldn’t ask him about the New York Post story, not that they wanted to.

We have some questions, and here’s the first one: Did any money from Burisma or any other foreign company or foreign government wind up in Joe Biden’s pockets or in the account of any entity he benefits from?

We’re not accusing Joe Biden of a crime. We’re saying it has long been a mystery how a man who took a government salary for almost 50 years has lived like a rich man since the 1970s. (Ever seen Joe Biden’s houses? Look them up. “Opulent” doesn’t begin to describe the way he lives.) Can you do that? No, you can’t. So how did Joe Biden do that?

No one seems especially interested in finding out. But we are, and we may. There were a lot of emails on that laptop in Delaware, tens of thousands of emails. The New York Post is not the only news organization that has copies of those emails.

They are out there. So stay tuned.

As Rudy Giuliani told Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business this morning, there is indeed much, much more to come on this story.

Not that it will do much good, but the New York Post reports that the Senate Homeland Security Committee has opened an investigation into all of this:

WASHINGTON — A Senate committee is investigating a bombshell cache of documents about Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings that was acquired by a Delaware computer repairman and exposed Wednesday by The Post.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee confirmed it is working with the repairman, whose identity was confirmed by The Post, to verify documents from the hard drive.

“There are so many red flags about the Biden family trying to cash in on the Vice President’s position that it can be hard to keep them straight,” Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told The Post.

“Today’s report raises more questions that must be resolved,” Johnson said.

[End]

God bless Senator Johnson for at least trying.

Hilariously, Mike Allen, editor at Axios, has a story today discussing how Biden is the “luckiest and least-scrutinized frontrunner” in modern times:

Eight months ago, Joe Biden was in danger of losing the Democratic nomination. Now he’s a prohibitive favorite for president — who got there with lots of luck and shockingly little scrutiny.

Why it matters: The media’s obsession with Trump — and Trump’s compulsion to dominate the news — allowed Biden to purposely and persistently minimize public appearances and tough questions.

Since Aug. 31, Biden has answered less than half as many questions from the press as Trump — 365 compared with 753 — according to a tally by the Trump campaign, which the Biden campaign didn’t dispute.

  • In that time, Biden has done approximately 35 local TV interviews, three national interviews and two town halls.
  • Biden went almost three months without taking questions from beat reporters.
  • Biden aides say one reason there’s less scrutiny of Biden in the general election is that he already was examined thoroughly in the primary election and over decades in public life.
  • Andrew Bates, a Biden spokesperson, said: “Who’s ‘scrutinizing’ Trump more, Maria Bartiromo or Sean Hannity?”

Biden has yet to be pinned down on an array of legitimate questions, including:

  • His blunt view of adding new justices to the Supreme Court, which will be a priority for progressives if Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed. Biden, who had criticized the idea in the past, finally said he’s “not a fan of court packing.”
  • Biden also has mostly gotten off easy on Medicare for All, police funding, Pentagon spending, fracking, reparations for African Americans, the Green New Deal and his support for the 1994 crime bill.
  • Per Trump campaign spokesperson Andrew Clark: “Biden has been the least-scrutinized presidential candidate in modern history at great disservice to the voters, but the press still has time to rectify that.”

[End]

Why is this story unintentionally hilarious? Because Axios is basically the daily summarizer of the topline talking points for the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda, one of the most reliable mouthpieces for the Democrat Party in existence today.

And note what Allen and Axios leave completely out: The story makes no mention whatsoever of the bombshell stories about the Biden family corruption.

If Joe Biden has been “lucky” and not properly vetted by the corrupt news media, Allen has been one of the leading players in that intentional effort. It’s a role he and Axios will continue to play right through Election Day and beyond.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: The New York Post Drops a Bombshell on Biden

You have to watch this in its entirety to fully grasp the level of depravity involved. – Appearing with Democrat activist Wolf Blitzer on CNN yesterday afternoon, Nancy Pelosi went into a full fit of rage after the fake news host dared to question her motives for refusing to negotiate in good faith on a stimulus bill.

You just have to watch both snips here to get the full picture:

This is what happens when politicians in one party become spoiled by never having to be held to account for their actions by the corrupted news media. Pelosi has gotten so used to living in her propaganda bubble with co-conspirator press members that she reacts with rage anytime a guy like Blitzer – who 20 years ago was an actual newsman and still slips into that mode on occasion – dares to pose a real question to her.

We see exactly the same reaction by Joe Biden anytime he is asked a real question by a reporter who slips up and forgets the role he’s playing.

It really is extraordinary. These people truly do believe they are entitled to say anything they want, to behave in any manner they wish, no matter how dishonest or depraved, and to do it all without having any fear of being held to account for their actions by the news media they carry around in their hip pockets.

And why wouldn’t they react this way, given that the news media has toadied for them for all these years?

Joe Biden, segregationist, Part 6,211. – It didn’t get any media notice, because of course it didn’t, but the Democrats’ Unfrozen Caveman Candidate is now back to praising old segregationist Democrats in his stump speeches:

Here is a famous James Eastland quote from the 1960s: “The white race is a superior race, and the Negro race is an inferior race,” said Democrat Senator James Eastland.

There is a deep-seated psychological reason why Biden consistently heaps praise on old racists like Eastland and Robert Byrd, and it isn’t an innocent one.

The Corona-madness is deep in this one. – Michigan’s corona-madness quotient went a little higher in recent days. In case you missed it, fascist Gov. Gretchen Whitmer got poured out by the state’s supreme court once again, with a 6-1 ruling denying her the ability to enforce an of her latest mindless China Virus-related mandates on the public.

In the course of reading about that decision, one truly mad aspect of herr Gretchen’s most recent order came to light. From a story in the Detroit Free Press:

Robert Gordon, the director of the Department of Health and Human Services, issued a sweeping order Friday that largely mirrors statewide mandates previously levied by Whitmer in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

The newly instituted order requires masks at any public gathering with two or more people — including sporting events and schools — for much of the state and maintains restrictions on the number of people who may enter stores or restaurants. Unlike under Whitmer’s orders, bars are now allowed to operate but they may only serve alcohol to people who are sitting down and 6 feet apart.

[End]

Yes, because the China virus is only transmissible if you are drinking while standing, see?

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

It’s all becoming crystal clear now. – In a blockbuster report that the rest of the corrupt U.S. news media will do its best to ignore, the New York Post this morning published some incredibly damning emails that it has obtained from a copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop computer.

The emails show officials at Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid Hunter Biden millions in exchange for his influence on his then-Vice President dad, clearly soliciting the younger Biden to use his influence with dear ol’ daddy, who has claimed to have never even spoken to his son about his business dealings.

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad

Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to e-mails obtained by The Post.

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the e-mail reads.

An earlier e-mail from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.

The blockbuster correspondence — which flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” — is contained in a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer.

Other material extracted from the computer includes a raunchy, 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter, who’s admitted struggling with addiction problems, smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.

Less than eight months after Pozharskyi thanked Hunter Biden for the introduction to his dad, the then-vice president admittedly pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into getting rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee during a December 2015 trip to Kiev.

“I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,” Biden infamously bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018.

“Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”

[End]

If Joe Biden were a Republican, this would be completely disqualifying and would be the only story anyone in the media would focus on for the next week. Because he’s a Democrat, you’ll barely see it mentioned anywhere outside of the Post.

But it’s a big, big deal.

That is all.

Hunter Biden is a Clear and Present National Security Risk **UPDATED**

The new report jointly dropped today by the Senate Finance and Senate Homeland Security Committees squarely and unambiguously identifies Hunter Biden as a clear and present danger to U.S. national security should his dear old dad get elected to the presidency. The report makes clear that the younger Biden is not only in the pockets of Chinese and Ukrainian oligarchs, but Russians as well.

The fact that Hunter Biden used his daddy’s position as U.S. Vice President to enrich himself during the Obama years has long been well-documented. The younger Biden tagged along with his helpful Pop on Air Force 2 trips all over the globe to secure lucrative “business” deals with the Chinese Communist government and with the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma.

Chief among the revelations in today’s Senate report is that Hunter Biden also received a payment of $3.5 million from the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow, Elena Baturina. In addition, as reported by Newsweek, he received several subsequent payments of several hundred thousands of dollars each:

Baturina, a billionaire, was previously married to Yuri Luzhkov, who served as mayor of Moscow but was fired for alleged corruption in 2010. The report details how Biden’s business received a $3.5 million payment from Baturina in February 2014, which was described to be for “consultancy” work. In 2015, Biden also received several payments of several hundred thousand dollars from Baturina, several of which were listed as part of a “loan agreement.”

[End]

The same corrupt news media establishment that has spent the last 4 years making up allegations of “Russia Collusion” against President Trump will naturally attempt to downplay this and other findings of the Senate report, because that is what the corrupt news media does. But the stench of Hunter Biden’s corruption is inextricably linked to his creepy father given the role Joe Biden played in shepherding him all over the world on Air Force 2, as summarized by Daily Wire:

Hunter Biden was a U.S. Secret Service protectee from Jan. 29, 2009 to July 8, 2014. A day before his last trip as a protectee, Time published an article describing Burisma’s ramped up lobbying efforts to U.S. officials and Hunter’s involvement in Burisma’s board. Before ending his protective detail, Hunter Biden received Secret Service protection on trips to multiple foreign locations, including Moscow, Beijing, Doha, Paris, Seoul, Manila, Tokyo, Mexico City, Milan, Florence, Shanghai, Geneva, London, Dublin, Munich, Berlin, Bogota, Abu Dhabi, Nairobi, Hong Kong, Taipei, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Johannesburg, Brussels, Madrid, Mumbai and Lake Como.

[End]

Also from the Daily Wire article, here are findings of other examples of Hunter Biden’s financial entanglements with unsavory foreign nationals:

  • In addition to the over $4 million paid by Burisma for Hunter Biden’s and Archer’s board memberships, Hunter Biden, his family, and Archer received millions of dollars from foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds.
  • Archer received $142,300 from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan, purportedly for a car, the same day Vice President Joe Biden appeared with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arsemy Yasenyuk and addressed Ukrainian legislators in Kyiv regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea.
  • Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.
  • Hunter Biden opened a bank account with Gongwen Dong to fund a $100,000 global spending spree with James Biden and Sara Biden.
  • Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow.
  • Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an “Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.

[End]

Oh, yeah, that’s what the country needs: A presidential son who is involved in human trafficking.

Again, the corrupt legacy media will do all it can to downplay all of this and exonerate Creepy Uncle Joe from any involvement. But now you understand why a frail, elderly, mentally declining senior citizen has spent the last 17 months in a desperate pursuit of the office of the presidency. Because, if he can win in November, his appointed Attorney General can clear the stench of his son’s unsavory associations completely away.

Hunter Biden is a clear national security risk, but not as much of a risk as dear old Dad.

**UPDATE** Speaking of dear old Dad, watch him respond to a question about his role as his son’s facilitator in all of this:

That is a frail, elderly, desperate man.

That is all.

The Media Bends a Collective Knee at the Altar of Joe Biden

The media beclowns itself one more time. – Not that that is any surprise, of course. Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden’s handlers helped their declining candidate up out of his basement yesterday to hold his first press conference after an 89 day hiatus.

Very predictably, press questioners had been very carefully chosen in advance – at one point, Biden actually stated that “they gave me a list” of which reporter to call on – and not one of them asked anything resembling a difficult question.

– No questions about Biden being the guy who suggested the FBI pursue General Mike Flynn using the archaic Logan Act;

– No questions asking the Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee to explain why he personally unmasked General Flynn in December of 2016;

– No questions about his bragging on camera about blackmailing the Ukrainian president to fire the prosecutor who was investigating Burisma, where his son Hunter was on the board of directors;

– No questions about his facilitation of his son’s activities in looting China;

– No questions about his increasingly obvious memory and speaking issues (at one point, Biden could not recall the name of his hometown newspaper. Think about that one for a minute);

– No questions about why he was not wearing his black mask after spending the last month claiming it was absolutely a requirement that he would impose on every American;

– No questions about Biden’s extensive documented history of making racist remarks in public events or his troubled relationship with Corn Pop;

– And most interestingly, no questions about why Biden was suddenly wearing earpieces in both ears, which would indicate to any rational and curious person that he was very likely being fed answers by his handlers.

No real journalists in the room, obviously. Not a single curious mind among them. Just a bunch of Democrat activists with press passes. Despicable, pathetic human beings who refuse to do their job.

 

Hilariously, as Biden stammered and searched in vain for words, his sign language interpreter became obviously frustrated in her attempts to interpret what he was attempting to say:

This is the guy the Democrat Party wants you to believe is capable of standing toe-to-toe with Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. This is the guy they want you to believe is capable of conducting the daily duties of the presidency of the United States.

Now you know why he has refused to hold a presser for 89 days. Count on him not doing another one prior to Election Day. Back to the basement, Joe.

No rallies? You mean, you were having rallies before the pandemic, Joe? – In an act that was entirely predictable if you’ve been paying attention to his campaign handlers’ Hidin’ Biden strategy, Biden gravely announced at the presser that he will use COVID-19 as a handy excuse to not hold any campaign rallies, further isolating himself and his obviously demented presence from potential voters.

Of course, no reporter noted that Biden sacrificing rallies is kind of like President Trump, who is a life-long teetotaler, giving up fine wine – it’s not like Biden was having anything like real “rallies” before the viral gift from China reached our shores. The man’s handlers were in the habit of partitioning off high school gymnasiums to about a third of their size so that the tiny number of attendees would not seem such lonely figures for the TV cameras.

So, Biden has now used COVID-19 as an excuse to hide in his basement for three months, they used it as an excuse to cancel their convention so that Biden can now safely read his acceptance speech from his basement using a teleprompter, and now as an excuse to avoid holding any face-to-face rallies with his fans to avoid giving the few dozen who might show up a real, live view of him.

Mark this down: Unless Biden and his handlers decide that they can get away with the use of those earpieces, they will use the virus as an excuse to cancel any face-to-face debates with President Trump as well.

It’s as predictable as the phases of the moon.

That is all.

Biden Center Under Investigation for Illegal Donations From China

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

If the label says “Biden,” it was definitely influenced by China. – John Solomon at JustTheNews.com is reporting that The National Legal and Policy Center has asked the U.S. Department of Education to investigate its findings that the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) has over the past several years accepted more than $22 million in anonymous China-originated donations to its Biden Center and failed to properly disclose the contributions.

From Solomon’s report:

The complaint, filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, says that over the past three years, the university has accepted around $22 million in anonymous funding from Chinese sources. That’s out of a total of more than $70 million from Chinese donors during that time, the NLPC said.

Those significant funds, including the anonymous amounts, rolled in after the Biden Center was announced in early 2017 and launched in February 2018. The center is located in downtown Washington, D.C.

Federal records show that the University of Pennsylvania has received significant donations from China since the opening of the center. One 2018 donation alone totals $14.5 million; it is listed as “anonymous” in federal records.

The NLPC alleges the university may have violated federal law in accepting those anonymous monetary donations. The Higher Education Act mandates schools report the national origins of any donations above $250,000 although not necessarily the individual names of donors themselves.

[End]

This serves as just one more reminder that Biden, his son and his brother have long been in the pockets of Chinese interests. The stark reality facing our country today is that, should Biden manage to win the election in November, all of the gains President Donald Trump has made through the sheer force of his will in terms of U.S./China relations and trade policy will be immediately reversed the day after Biden assumes office.

If you like the fact that virtually all U.S. antibiotics and PPE are sourced through China at some point along their supply chains and want it to stay that way, vote for Biden. Because that would be a fait accompli should he win. There are trillions of dollars at stake, and Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe wants to ensure his family continues to get its fair share.

The stench of panic pandering is strong in this one. – How would you like to be Symone Sanders, the African American hack who serves as racist Joe Biden’s press spokesperson?

Sanders has spent the last few days desperately trying to clean up the pile of doggie-do the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee left on the floor on Saturday, when he told a clearly-Black radio host “you ain’t black” if he has a hard time decided whether to vote for Biden or President Trump this November.

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Politics DC” show hosted by venerable old race-baiter Al Sharpton on Sunday, Ms. Sanders blurted out this bit of obvious panic pandering, as reported at Breitbart News:

“Vice President Biden has committed to making sure that we are underscoring not just the civil rights division and the Department of Justice, the civil rights division across his administration,” Sanders told MSNBC “PoliticsNation” host Al Sharpton. “He is committed to putting judges on the bench that reflect the community, taking a hard look, and making sure that they are African-American judges on the bench, qualified judges on the bench. He has committed to putting a black woman on the Supreme Court.”

So now, in addition to having the standard Democrat Party litmus test of having to be pro-abortion on demand and even after birth, Sanders says Biden will add the litmus tests of being a woman and African American to his list of pre-qualifications when considering his first nominee to the Supreme Court. This kind of rank discrimination is so despicable and anti-American that it is hard to put into words. It takes panic pandering to an entirely new level.

But this is Joe Biden, and this is what you can expect if you vote for him in November.

Think carefully before going into that voting booth, folks.

That is all.

Iowa Fallout: The Commie Ascending, Quid Pro Joe in Free Fall

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – All major stock indexes – the Dow, the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 –  closed a record highs on Thursday yet again as the Trump economy keeps chugging along. Wednesday’s ADP private sector jobs report for January came in at a whopping 291,000 jobs added, almost doubling “expert” projections of 150,000. That news, of course, was ignored by our corrupt national news media. The Labor Department non-farm jobs report comes out this morning.

The Commie declares “victory” in Iowa. – Why? Because he won. At least, he won by any rational measure. That measure would be the actual number of people who came out and cast their first round and second round lots with the old Bolshevik.

The Commie won the first round of voting by more than 6,000 over second place Preacher Pete, and then, after the non-viable candidates were eliminated and their voters had to either re-pledge themselves to other candidates or go home, The Commie won the second round by a more narrow margin. It was then and only then that the “counters” from the DNC running the Iowa process were able to rig a miniscule “win” for Preacher Pete, somehow managing through an allocation process no one understands to award 26.2% of the state delegates to the failed Mayor of South Ben to 26.1% for the do-nothing Senator from Vermont.

Tom Perez, the utterly corrupt head of the DNC, was so upset by Sanders’ victory declaration that he immediately ordered his toadies out in Iowa to re-canvass the vote. He does that not on the belief that it would somehow change any of the confused outcome, but in order to throw even more confusion into the process in order to further obscure Sanders’ clear win.

Because, hey, if they can’t rig the outcome they prefer, the next best thing is to coordinate with their media toadies to confuse the public about who really won. This is your Democrat Party in action. It’s all very transparent if you just pay attention.

But all this confusion over who “won” in Iowa kind of misses the point, anyway. There were two big stories coming out of that fiasco, both of them terrible news for the Democrats and the DNC:

  • Total voter turnout was somewhere around 170,000, which puts it in line with the Democrat turnout in Iowa for 2012, when Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was running unopposed. Party officials had speculated that turnout would compare to the 2008 turnout, when almost 240,000 Iowans showed up to pick between Obama and the Fainting Felon. This low turnout number indicates a party headed for a sea-change loss election in November. Thus, it has been largely ignored by the corrupt news media.
  • Joe Biden is in free-fall now. He failed to win a single county or a single national delegate under the party’s Byzantine formula for allocation of delegates, even though he did receive slightly above 15% of the vote, at least if you believe the DNC “counters,” which you should not. This is terrible news for the DNC and the party’s major donor base, who had held out hope that Biden would be able to stave off The Commie.

Biden’s numbers are also now collapsing in other early primary states. In the two most recent polls out of New Hampshire, he comes in at just 11%, not even half of The Commie’s level of support. In South Carolina, where Biden has consistently held a 25-30% margin thanks to heavy support in that state’s Black community, a new Zogby Analytics poll shows his lead sitting at just 8% over The Commie. A recent Post and Courier poll pegs his lead at just 5%. Polls show Quid Pro Joe and The Commie running neck and neck in Nevada, the only other contest before Super Tuesday.

Right now it appears likely that Biden will run no better than a poor 4th place in New Hampshire, and probably will not win any delegates there, either. That from the guy that the DNC has promoted for 10 solid months as its most “electable” candidate. If the bottom falls out up there, then it seems possible now that the Unfrozen Caveman Senator could even lose in South Carolina and go into Super Tuesday without having won a single contest. If that happens, he is well and truly done.

Biden’s problem is simple: He is clearly too old and infirm for the job. That is obvious to anyone who actually pays attention to him. While Sanders is a little bit older than Quid Pro Joe, he at least is holding things together, despite his heart incident last October. But Biden often doesn’t know where he is on any given day, and increasingly looks lost while speaking to his paltry audiences.

He was able to get away with all of that up until voters actually began paying attention to the race, which has really just begun to happen over the last few weeks, as the caucus and primary contests approach. Voters are now tuning in, and what they see in Biden obviously disturbs them.

The reality of Biden – as opposed to the myth of “electability” that he and the DNC have promoted since last April – combined with the months-long headlines about his and Hunter Biden’s looting of the Ukraine while he served as Vice President, is why his numbers are in free-fall.

A reader asked yesterday if Biden would turn out to be this election cycle’s Jeb! Bush. I replied that he already is, but he just hasn’t quite figured it out yet. Jeb! himself didn’t figure it out until it was already over for him. Biden will, however, figure it out soon, perhaps after a loss in South Carolina, or no later than what will almost certainly become a disastrous showing on Super Tuesday.

My new odds for the Eventual Winner of the Democrat Party’s Nomination:

The Commie               7 to 4

Mini-Mike                  4 to 1

Fauxcahontas           10 to 1

Preacher Pete           10 to 1

Quid Pro Joe            30 to 1

Tom Steyer               30 to 1

Someone Else           2 to 1

Who, you ask, is that Someone Else? Well, who do you think?

 

That is all.

WATCH: Ted Cruz Sums up the House Impeachment Scam

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If you don’t think there was very good reason to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden’s influence game vis a vis Ukraine, then you, friend, are a liberal hack. – That’s the one and only conclusion any reasonable person can reach after Pam Bondi’s tour de force on the Senate floor Monday, where she literally evicerated the father/son gang of thugs.

Bondi, a former Attorney General of Florida who is a key part of the Trump defense team, not only exposed the Bidens’ racketeering in Ukraine, but also in China and Iraq, two other countries where Quid Pro Joe served as Obama’s “point man” on foreign policy. During the course of her expose’, Bondi not only exposed the Bidens, she also exposed the House Managers as dishonest hacks, and exposed the news media for the manner in which it actually made token efforts to expose the Biden corruption, but then turned on a dime to defend Quid Pro Joe once he declared himself a candidate for the presidency.

This exposure naturally threw the Capital press corps into a rage, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz became a target of their ire when he held a brief presser after Bondi had finished. Watch as Cruz exposes the Democrat/media hacks for what they are in this clip, which is followed by a transcript.

Here’s the Clip:

 

Here’s the transcript for those of you who still like to read stuff:

Cruz: This was the first time in the entire proceeding we have heard just the beginning of the serious evidence of corruption involving Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, a million dollars a year…[reporter interrupts]… let me finish, I’ll answer the question…[another interruption] … let me answer the question without interrupting me please.

Burisma paid Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, a million dollars a year while Hunter [Joe]  Biden threatened Ukraine to withhold a billion dollars in aid unless and until they filed the prosecutor investigating his son.

Reporter: When did Hunter Biden threaten anyone, sir?

Cruz: Joe Biden. Joe Biden, the Vice President of the United States, and we just saw a video, and I would encourage each and every news outlet here to actually show the video of Joe Biden bragging how he told the President of the Ukraine he was gonna cut off a billion dollars…he was gonna block a billion dollars in foreign aid to Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor.

And Joe Biden, in his own words, ‘son of a bitch, the fired the guy.’

Reporter: So, why not have Bolton testify? [lots of belligerent crosstalk here from reporters]

Cruz: So, I get that the press loves to obsess over the latest bombshell. Listen, I don’t know what John Bolton’s book says or doesn’t say. I’ve seen the New York Times coverage, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t impact the legal issue before this senate.

The legal issue before this senate is whether the President has the authority to investigate corruption. The House Managers built their entire case [reporter tries to interrupt] on the proposition that investigating Burisma corruption, investigating the Bidens for corruption, was baseless and a sham. [more reporter interruptions]

Hold on, let me finish this…[more interruptions – note how desperate the media hacks are to prevent him from getting this point made] no, I’m gonna finish my point and then I’ll be happy to answer your question. The House Managers based their entire case on the proposition that investigating Burisma – and concerning the Bidens – was baseless and a sham.

That proposition is absurd. We’ve just seen…they said there wasn’t a shred of evidence concerning corruption. We’ve just seen two hours of evidence. And at a minimum, it was not only reasonable and justified, but the President, I think, had an obligation to investigate corrupt that potentially extended to the very highest levels of government.

Reporter: Senator, in that two hours, none of the President’s attorneys mentioned a single possible crime that Hunter or Joe Biden are accused of. [Cruz laughs out loud at this] What this basically is, is Hunter Biden got a job, and his father was Vice President. If that’s a crime, shouldn’t half of your children be in jail?

Cruz: [Laughing in the idiot’s face] My children are 9 and 11, and I’m sorry that you want to throw a 9 year-old in prison, but at this point, my third-grader plays basketball and softball at her school, so stop playing the nasty [reporter interrupts] no, stop playing the nasty Washington game [reporter interrupts again] attacking a 9 year-old? [lost of crosstalk here]

Reporter: Senator, we have seen reports of a possible one for one trade on witnesses. Would you be open to that idea?

Cruz: In my view, additional witnesses are not necessary. The House Managers have presented their case, and they haven’t come remotely close to meeting their burden of proof. Now, that being said, if the senate later this week when we vote on witnesses decides to go down the road to additional witnesses, I think at a minimum, the most important witness for the senate to hear from is now Hunter Biden. [reporter interrupts] Let another reporter have a chance [talking to the previous idiot]

Reporter: Why don’t you want to hear from John Bolton under oath?

Cruz: I don’t believe the testimony is necessary. The House Managers have a burden of proof. A burden of proof to prove their case. They have fallen woefully short. The standard under the constitution is high crimes and misdemeanors. They have not demonstrated any law was violated, and the President was entirely justified in asking for an investigation concerning corruption in the Ukraine and potentially Hunter Biden and Joe Biden.

At the end of the day, there might have been [lots of crosstalk here before the next idiot reporter asks the idiot reporter question of all time]

Reporter: What about the shadow over the presidency? If you don’t have witness testimony in this trial…

Cruz: [laughing out loud at the idiot hack again] Look, the “shadow over the presidency” is the last several months of sham proceedings in the House, where they only heard from prosecution witnesses, and they ignored the very substantial evidence of corruption with the Vice President, going potentially to the very top of the [Obama] Administration.

And let me – by the way, the Obama Administration pointed out the conflict of interest over and over and over again, and so did the press, until the press decided to defend the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment attack. This has been a sham from the beginning. Presidents have the authority to investigate corruption, and it was overwhelming.

[End]

Thank you, Senator Cruz, for summing it all up so succinctly and clearly. No wonder the media hates you so damn much.

That is all.

The New York Times Sets the Final, Desperate Impeachment Deep State Narrative

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The New York Times makes a final desperate play in its role as bullhorn for the Deep State. – Ok, so, this was inevitable: After the White House defense team devastated the Democrats’ impeachment scam with a simple recitation of the actual facts at hand on Saturday, the corrupt hacks at the New York Times publish yet another narrative-setter on behalf of their political party of choice.

The writers of the piece are Hillary Clinton tool Maggie Haberman and Obama hack Michael Schmidt, which is really pretty much all you need to know as far as the slant the piece takes, and the utter lack of any shred of journalistic integrity it involves. As is typical of this kind Deep State support news-fakery, the piece names not a single source, relying instead only on “multiple people,” a fact that is not revealed until the fourth paragraph.

Oh, yeah, and the fact that no one – not one single person – at the New York Times has actually seen the manuscript, written by former national security advisor John Bolton, is not revealed until … well, it’s not revealed anywhere in the piece at all. The piece contains no quotes from the alleged Bolton manuscript, because the Times has not seen the book.

The Times does reveal that the manuscript was submitted to the White House for pre-clearance by the National Security Council, which we know is filled with Deep State Obama plants, and which has been a leak factory since Day One of this administration. The NSC also provided both the fake “whistleblower” – Eric Ciaramella – and his buddy Alexander Vindman to serve as the catalysts for the impeachment scam.

Bolton’s spokesperson claims that single copy submitted to the White House is the one and only copy the publisher has distributed to anyone:

Hey, let’s all guess where these leaks originate from. When you learn that all publication clearances by the NSC are signed off on by Yevgeny Vindman, the twin brother of Alexander Vindman, it isn’t that hard, is it?

So, what does the Bolton book claim? From the Times’ piece:

President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton.

The president’s statement as described by Mr. Bolton could undercut a key element of his impeachment defense: that the holdup in aid was separate from Mr. Trump’s requests that Ukraine announce investigations into his perceived enemies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, who had worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was in office.

Take away the inflammatory rhetoric and Democrat-narrative framing predictably added in by Haberman and Schmidt, and you have the President telling Bolton exactly what his legal team told the Senate: That the President was doing his job, waiting on releasing the aid to Ukraine – perfectly legal under his constitutional authority and the law – until he was sure that the new Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky was a good actor who was going to work to investigate and punish corruption by American actors in his country.

Remember that we have Joe Biden on video, admitting to literally bribing the previous Ukrainian government in 2016 to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company. The Democrats’ entire impeachment scam hinges on the argument that Biden is somehow exempt from any investigation into his outright thuggery while serving as Vice President simply because he now happens to be a candidate for the party’s presidential nomination. Sorry, but that cat don’t flush.

Back to the NSC: It is very likely that the Times’ corrupt reporters have been in possession of their information for several weeks, and waited until this moment to release this report, right before the Trump team is about to resume its defense arguments in the Senate trial. How can we be fairly sure of this? Because of this little-noticed Daily Mail story from January 17, title ” Donald Trump’s top Russia expert on National Security Council is ‘escorted off the White House grounds amid a security investigation’:

President Donald Trump’s top Russia expert on the National Security Counsel is reportedly on leave pending a security investigation.

Andrew Peek, the NSC’s senior director for European and Russian affairs, was escorted from the White House grounds on Friday, two people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

Peek had been in the NSC role for just two months, after most recently working as a deputy assistant secretary of state with responsibility for Iran and Iraq.

He replaced Tim Morrison, who left the position after testifying in the House impeachment inquiry.

What do you suppose that “security investigation” involved? If you answered “probably leaks to Haberman and Schmidt,” you win the gold medal.

Naturally, both House and Senate Democrats immediately – within bare moments – responded to the Times report on their Twitter accounts with strikingly similar talking points. Why, it’s almost as if they were working in coordination with Haberman and Schmidt. Because they were.

The President responded a few hours later with tweets of his own:

and

This narrative-setting “report” from the Times creates the echo chamber the rest of the media will use throughout the next two days. Every on-air “analysis” from Democrat media toadies on CNN, MSNBC and the broadcast networks will be viewed through the prism of this story. This story provides all of the corrupt reporters the pretext for ignoring the arguments presented by the President’s defense team, and now will be used to hammer the RINO Usual Suspects – Murkowski, Collins, Romney, etc. – into voting with the senate Democrats to prolong the trial.

And it’s not just the RINOs: The Times also has an op/ed piece this morning advocating that Chief Justice John Roberts issue subpoenas for witnesses under his own authority. The piece is written by two leftist Georgetown professors and 83 year-old former Oklahoma congressman Mickey Edwards, another RINO who presumably needed a pay day.

These pressure points are the intention, of course, the result of the carefully-coordinated plan between the Democrats and their activists in our fake news media.

It’s all very transparent to anyone paying close attention. Unfortunately, very few Americans – and very few of the Senators – have really been paying close attention.

That is all.

Rudy Giuliani Drops Another Verbal Bomb at Mar-a-Lago [Updated]

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

As he entered a New Year’s eve party at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort Tuesday evening, Rudy Giuliani stopped to talk to several reporters. During the course of his two-minute discussion with them, he laid out the high points of what he says was an organized plot by “the highest levels” of the Obama Administration to literally loot the Ukraine for millions during the Obama presidency.

Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney, has spent the better part of the last year investigating the activities of Joe and Hunter Biden, along with other Democrat luminaries, as they relate to the Ukraine on behalf of President Trump. Below is a clip of his interview followed by a transcript:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here is the transcript of the Mayor’s remarks:

Reporter: You just got back from Ukraine. What did you do?

Giuliani: Well, a lot of things I learned but I can’t reveal yet. What I’ve learned is that the corruption in Ukraine is vast, it’s extensive, it highly involves the Democratic Party – not just in 2016, but for many years. And one of the reasons they’re doing this impeachment is when the full scope of what happened in the Ukraine comes out, there are going to be an awful lot of Americans who participated in the Ukrainian corruption.

In fact, we shouldn’t call it ‘Ukrainian corruption,’ we should call it ‘American/Ukrainian corruption.’ The Bidens took millions of dollars, laundered out of the Ukraine, and the only reason they’re getting away with it is because you in the press protect them, and the prosecutors are afraid you’re gonna criticize them. That’s a double standard that has to end.

Reporter: Well, tell us what you found out.

Giuliani: Well, I’m not gonna tell you what I found out until I have a proper forum to do it, but it’s devastating.

Reporter: What’s that forum? Would that be in front of the Senate?

Giuliani: We will figure out the right forum, and it will come at the right time. I don’t have all the evidence yet, I just met with a new witness just yesterday. [crosstalk with reporter] I can’t tell you who I met with. This is expanding, it will turn out to be a series of criminal acts, it will involve the highest levels of the Obama Administration, and it’s the reason why the Democratic Party is in panic. 

What they did to the Ukraine…[shakes his head several times] is embarrassing…

Reporter: Would you testify in the [Senate] trial?

Giuliani: I would testify, I would do demonstrations, I’d give lectures, I’d give summations, or…[removes glasses] I’d do what I do best: I’d try the case. I’d love to try the case.

Reporter: Are you telling us you are going to try the case?

Giuliani: Well, I don’t know. I don’t know if anybody would have the courage to give me the case. But if you give me the case, I will prosecute it as a racketeering case, which I kind of invented, anyway. 

So, it’s been 30 years ago, but let’s see if I can still do it.

[End]

For those who may not be aware, as the lead U.S. Attorney at the Southern District of New York, Giuliani became the first to successfully prosecute a case under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute. Giuliani used those laws to bring down a series of prominent mob bosses. No one better understands a racketeering operation when he sees one that Mr. Giuliani does.

The corrupt news media will of course continue to smear Giuliani as just some old crank spreading false rumors about political enemies, or even worse, as a guy running his own racket, as MSNBC did in early December. Remember one of the first things you have to know about Democrats: Projection is their favorite tactic. They always, without exception, accuse Republicans of the same wrongdoing they are themselves guilty of doing.

The entire Ukraine-focused impeachment scam is nothing more than a massive case of Democrat projection, accusing President Trump of the very ‘quid pro quo’ shakedown that we have Joe Biden admitting on video to doing. Giuliani has spent the better part of the last year accumulating evidence against Biden and other Democrats, and is now willing to testify about what he’s found.

The only questions at this point are:

  • Will the GOP-controlled senate allow him to testify?; and
  • Will Giuliani be able to remain alive long enough to do so?

After all, as we have seen so many times now, those who hold information damaging to the interests of prominent Democrats – or of prominent RINOs like John McCain, who had his own dealings in Ukraine – seem to have a very, very hard time avoiding “suicide”.

That is all.

UPDATE: Just after I posted this piece, the following news broke:

Rudy is not the only person investigating this looming enormous scandal.

Impeachment Consequences Coming Home to Depraved Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

For every action there is a consequence, and Democrats in congress and running for the presidency are feeling the consequences of their zeal to impeach President Donald Trump this weekend. – Let’s use Twitter to illustrate:

President Trump traveled to Philadelphia on Saturday to witness the grand annual football clash between Army and Navy. There, he met players and coaches from both teams prior to the contest, signed an executive order allowing players from military academies to immediately pursue professional sports careers upon graduating, received a rousing ovation from everyone in the stadium when he was introduced, and performed the coin toss while wearing a red “Keep America Great” cap.  Awesome:

Democrat New Jersey congressman Jeff Van Drew has informed his staff that he is so fed up with the Democrats’ impeachment sham that he is switching parties. Welcome to the real Party, pal.:

Minnesota Democrat Collin Peterson will join the ranks of weasely Democrats voting “no” on impeachment:

Oklahoma voters remind Democrat congresswoman Kendra Horn that “there’s not one county – not one county – in Oklahoma that voted for Hillary Clinton.” Horn is the only Democrat member of congress from Oklahoma. Next November, she will become a former Democrat member of congress:

Contrary to popular belief, there really still are real Americans in California. Here, several of them boo and taunt Bugeyes Schiff during a townhall meeting.:

Speaking of contemptible Democrats, Quid Pro Joe was reminded of his own illegal acts related to Ukraine on behalf of his ne’er-do-well son Hunter during a campaign event in Texas:

Democrat poster child Greta Thunberg took a lot of heat for pledging to “put world leaders against the wall” if they don’t bend the knee to her looming authoritarian world government. This child is nothing more than a stalking horse for a return of Hitlerian times. That’s what she is – you ignore that reality at your and everyone else’s risk:

Putting the coup de gras on Saturday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham invited Rudy Giuliani to come testify before his committee about his findings related to Obama-era corruption in Ukraine. Rudy has uncovered an amazing amount of wrongdoing at the highest levels of the Obama administration vis a vis Ukraine. Such a hearing would be absolutely devastating to Biden and the Democrats.

Make no mistake about it, the Democrats will suffer mightily at the ballot box for pursuing this purely partisan impeachment on the flimsiest reasons imaginable. In this process, they have utterly polluted our constitutional system of government and revealed their true Alinskyite/Marxist nature and totalitarian goals to the public. They can never go back from that.

And it’s only going to get worse, because they are just going to continue doubling down on failure. They have no real choice at this point. They are incapable of governing and have already clearly demonstrated the contempt they hold for the jobs the voters elected them to do. Thus, their next step will be to start undermining the validity of the 2020 election, and we’ve already seen Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi out there doing that.

None of this will stop until it is forcibly stopped, either by the voters or the Department of Justice. If Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham fail to act by prosecuting the true bad actors over the next 11 months, then it will be up to the voters to remove the Democrats from their lone position of power in the House next November.

The Democrats are no longer a political party. Political parties exist to win elections and govern.

The Democrats today are nothing more than a radical leftist, totalitarian activist group, intent on destroying the institutions of U.S. constitutional government and on obtaining and wielding power by any means necessary.

They won’t stop, until they are stopped.

That is all.

WATCH: Matt Gaetz Torches Hunter Biden at Impeachment Clown Show

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

GOP rising star Matt Gaetz of Florida gave today’s clown show hearing on impeachment the respect it fully deserved – by spending most of his five minutes of time mercilessly torching the Bidens, most notably Quid Pro Joe’s ne’er-do-well son, Hunter.

The clip of Gaetz’s five minutes of greatness is followed by a full transcript of the festivities:

 

Transcript:

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. This amendment strikes “Joe Biden” as the center of the investigation, and replaces it with the true topic of the investigation: Burisma and Hunter Biden.

An essential element of the Democrats’ case on abuse of power is that the Bidens did nothing wrong. It can only be an abuse of power, and not a correct use of power, if the President was pursuing something under which there was no reasonable basis to ask a question about Hunter Biden and Burisma.

Hunter Biden and Burisma – boy, that’s an interesting story. And I think just about every American knows there’s something up with that.

$86,000 a month, and no experience? Working for some foreign government while your dad’s the vice president of the United States?

Is there anyone who really believes this is ok? I know we’ve got a few of my Democratic colleagues who run for president, or might run for president one day: Would you let your vice president have their son or daughter or some family member out moonlighting for some foreign company?

Maybe I’ll use language familiar to the former vice president: C’mon man, this looks dirty as it is. Hunter Biden was making more than five times more than a board member for ExxonMobil [!]. I’ve heard of that company.

And so I wanted to read up on Hunter Biden, learn a little more about him, and I found this very extensive profile in the New Yorker.

Here’s what it says:

Hunter said that at that point, he had not slept for several days. Driving east on Interstate 10 just beyond Palm Springs, he lost control of his car, which jumped the median and skidded to a stop on the shoulder of the West-bound side. He called Hertz, which came to collect the damaged car and gave him a second rental.

The Hertz rental officer told me he found a crack pipe in the car, and on one of the consoles, a line of white powder residue. Beau Biden’s Attorney General badge was on the dashboard. Hertz called the Prescott police department and officers filed a narcotics offense report listing items seized in the car, including a plastic bag containing a white powdery substance, a secret service card, credit cards, and Hunter Biden’s driver’s license.

That is what we would call “evidence.” And I don’t want to make light of anybody’s substance abuse issues – I know the President’s working real hard to solve those throughout the country – but it’s a little hard to believe that Burisma hired Hunter Biden to resolve their international disputes when he could not resolve his own dispute with Hertz Rental Car over over leaving cocaine and a crack pipe in the car.

It continues:

Hunter stayed in Los Angeles for about a week. He said he needed to “get away and forget.”

Soon after his arrival in L.A., he said he asked a homeless man in Pershing Square where he could buy crack. Hunter said that the man took him to a nearby homeless encampment where, in a narrow passageway between tents, someone put a gun to his head before realizing he was the buyer. He returned to buy more crack a few times that week.

Again, not saying, not casting any judgment on any challenges someone goes through in their personal life, but it is just hard to believe this was the guy, wandering through homeless encampments buying crack, that was worth $86,000 a month to Burisma Holdings.

And that may be one of the reasons why, when ABC asked Hunter Biden, hey, do you think you would’ve gotten this job in the absence of your dad being vice president, well, he said, “probably not.”

Then I looked to the record evidence, and I looked to the testimony of Mr. [George] Kent. Mr. Kent was one of the witnesses they [the Democrats] called on the first day. He said Burisma was so dirty that our own embassy had to pull out of a joint sponsorship with them.

When Amb. Yovanovitch was being prepped for her own senate confirmation, the Obama administration was so worried about the corruption surrounding Burisma and Hunter Biden that they held special prep moments to try to get ready for the inevitable questions about this obvious corruption that the President [Trump] asked about.

Mr. Kent, one of their witnesses from the first day, also gave testimony that the head of Burisma had stolen $23 million in the U.S. and the U.K, and that he paid a bribe to get off the hook!

So, again, it’s not as if Burisma is pulling out new plays, their playbook is to go in and pay bribes and hire the people who are necessary to make those problems go away.

This is why the minority hearing issue [which Nadler refuses to call despite house rules requiring him to do so] is so important, by the way. You wonder why Republicans are so angry that we didn’t have a hearing to put on our own witnesses and our own evidence, and we wonder why, well, if they feel so good about their case, why did they block our ability to put in evidence?

It’s because we have the ability to show that Burisma is corrupt. We have the ability to show that Hunter Biden is corrupt.

And that totally exculpates the President, because there is no way in the United States of America that honestly pursuing actual corruption is an impeachable offense.

New Democrat Polling Gives us a New Impeachment Narrative

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Now  the Democrats’ handy poll-tested and focus-grouped word is “bribery.” – “Quid pro quo” never did work: It was too clumsy and all in Latin and stuff. And nobody was buying “obstruction of congress,” which is not even a real thing. So, San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes Schiff got their pollsters out on the job making calls and convened some focus groups to find them a handy new word to describe exactly what it is they’re accusing the President of the United States of doing.

This is how the Democrats really do this stuff, folks. No kidding. Everything they do, every word San Fran Nan utters in public, is based on data from polls and focus groups. They literally never do anything real anymore – haven’t for about 27 years now, in fact, since the Clintons rose to power.

The problem for them, though, is that polling and focus-grouping is a fool’s game, the most completely inexact science this side of global warming. You would think they might have learned that lesson back in 2016, when they had to eat the cost of all those pre-planned Hillary Clinton victory parties that all the polls and focus groups told them to go ahead and pay for.

But here they are, still buying in to their failed process, even after the implosion of “Russia collusion” and “obstruction of justice” and the Stormy Daniels payoff and all the myriad smears of Brett Kavanaugh and every other poll-and-focus-group-tested tactic they’ve deployed over the past four years.

Armed with her latest poll and focus group data, San Fran Nan put on her red dress and held another stammering, doddering presser at the capital last night, during which she revealed her fancy new word:
“Bribery.”

Here’s a clip:

Yes, friends, now we are supposed to believe that Donald Trump, on that July 25 call – the transcript of which we have all had the ability to actually read for ourselves for the last 6 weeks – actually “bribed” Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. Never mind that that literally is nowhere to be found or even remotely implied in the transcript of that call – San Fran Nan and her little pathologically-lying toady Adam Schiff say it’s bribery, so hey, it’s bribery. Plus, they have a parade of non-witnesses who are, like Bill Taylor and dapper dandy George Kent, going to testify about their third-and-fourth-hand hearsay gossip to back up the Democrats’ latest big, meaningless word.

You want to know who really did commit real, actual, by-the-book bribery of Ukrainian officials? Joe Biden. You don’t have to believe me, you can watch him brag about outright, unabashed bribery with $1 billion of American taxpayer money right here:

That’s real, true, unabashed bribery, committed by a sitting Vice President in order to protect his ne’er-do-well son, Hunter, who was getting massive payoffs by an utterly corrupt Ukrainian natural gas company called Burisma.

This, of course, is the Democrats’ favorite Saul Alinsky tactic of “projection” – accusing your enemies of doing all the bad things you in fact have done. It’s despicable, it’s demented, it’s disgusting. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here. Did you really expect anything else?

That is all.

Democrat Impeachment Circus Finally Makes it to the Big Top

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Yeah, neither am I. – Another day, another stock market record. The NASDAQ closed at its latest all-time record high on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average also closing unchanged at its all-time record high level. The Trump economy just refuses to cooperate with the Democrat/Media effort to talk the nation into a recession before next year’s elections.

The economy and stock market are doing so incredibly well, in fact, that the Democrats simply must impeach President Donald Trump. – The amazing prosperity and record levels of low unemployment achieved by the Trump economy has the Democrats so upset that they believe they have no choice but to impeach the President. No, I’m not kidding in saying that. That really is the case here.

San Fran Nan, Bug-eyes Schiff, Jabba the Nadler and the rest of the Democrat “leadership” understand that, when an incumbent president is running for re-election to a second term, that election pretty much always turns on the relative health of the economy. Voters tend to vote their pocketbooks, and when their pocketbooks are filled thanks to their being gainfully employed, they don’t tend to be in the mood for a radical change in the White House.

Let’s be honest: If the Democrats are offering nothing else to the voters with their lineup of carnival freak show presidential contenders, they are offering radical change, and not for the better when it comes to the economy. From Elizabeth Warren to The Commie to Preacher Pete to Quid Pro Joe, what they are offering to the voters for 2020 would well and truly take the nation to economic ruin like it has never seen before. There is not enough money on the face of God’s green earth to fund the $92 trillion Green New Deal, much less Medicare for all, free tuition, and all the other tons o’ fun free stuff these nitwits are using to try to buy the votes of the naive and the just plain stupid among us.

Given this stark reality, Democrat poo-bahs know they must do everything they possibly can to make the 2020 election a referendum on something, anything other than the economy. So they concocted the dumbest fake impeachment plan in U.S. history, a plan to hype and mis-characterize a July 25 phone call between the presidents of the U.S. and Ukraine, a plan to turn a perfectly valid demand by the U.S. for the Ukraine to investigate clear and unambiguous corruption by a former U.S. vice president and his son into some sort of mob-style blackmail scheme.

The plan is to “dirty-up” President Trump with a phony scandal to such an extent that his amazingly resilient public approval numbers fall into the 30s range, based on the reality that they cannot hope to defeat him next year unless that happens. San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes thought they could achieve this goal by holding Soviet-style interrogations of witnesses in the basement of the Capitol and strategically leaking only the damaging parts of their testimony to their willing accomplices at the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN.

But that tactic failed miserably just as all their other tactics over the past three years have miserably failed. So, today they’re taking their deceitful carnival side show right out into the Big Top with nationally-televised hearings featuring bureaucrats no one’s ever heard of whining about the disagreements they had with the foreign policy constitutionally set by the President of the United States.

Even in this new phase, the despicable Dems are hilariously hamstrung by their own mendacity. They can’t call the fake whistleblower, Eric CIAramella, whose fake, hearsay complaint served as the kicking off point for this entire fantasy play. They can’t call this deep state spy/leaker because he’d either have to commit perjury or admit to all of his coordination with Bug-eyes and his staff in writing and filing the complaint.

And what of the highly-publicized and promoted Alexander Vindman, the Obama holdover at the NSC who showed up to his basement interrogation wearing his dress uniform for the TV cameras in clear violation of the U.S. military code of conduct? Vindman’s name is mysteriously nowhere to be found on this week’s witness list. It turns out that, despite Schiff’s strategic leaks of small portions of Vindman’s tesimony, the deep state embed actually did not do well at all under cross-examination by GOP Rep. John Ratcliffe, and Vindman’s hothead lawyer came across as the bad guy character from an episode of Ally McBeal. So Vindman obviously needs more coaching time, and perhaps also a new lawyer.

Curiously on the witness list for Thursday is ex-U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who we know already committed perjury during her own basement testimony. This Obama holdover was so corrupt that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky actually asked President Trump to get rid of her. But, being an Obama appointee, she is no doubt willing to say whatever San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes want from her, so they’re putting her up there despite her previous perjury.

I won’t be obsessing over these public hearings today because I have better things to do with my time, like trim my fingernails and vacuum the spare bedrooms, and I hope you won’t either.

Because at the end of the day, this is just a show. It’s just an episode of ‘Seinfeld’: A show about nothing, only without the entertaining parts.

That is all.

Boom: The Crowdstrike Ruse Comes Back to Haunt the Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The transcript of the call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky is out, and now we know why the Democrats are really in such a panic here. – You can read the transcript for yourself at this link.

First, the key takeaway here is that there is clearly, unarguably ZERO quid pro quo in anything President Trump says on this call. NONE. ZERO. ZIP. NADA. And no amount of deception on the part of our fake news media can change that immutable fact.  Here is exactly what the President said as it relates to Biden and his ne’er-do-well son, Hunter:

“I heard you had a prosecutor who very good and he was shut down and that’s really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and there were some very bad people involved. Mr Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the Mayor of New York City, a great Mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just wanted to let you know that.  The other thing, there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution, and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it…it sounds horrible to me.”

That’s it. That is the only mention of anyone named “Biden.” There is no “there” there. Period

Here is the passage that really has the Democrats in their current panicked frenzy:

“I would like for you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say “Crowdstrike”...I guess you have one of your wealthy people…the server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you are surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole thing ended with a very bad performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance. But they say a lot of it started with Ukraine.”

Boom. Holy cow, this is dynamite. This is the trap into which the Democrats, in their mass insane hatred of President Trump, have fallen into.

Crowdstrike, of course, is the cyber security firm that supposedly did a forensic examination in the summer of 2016 of the DNC’s email server and certified to the FBI that it had been hacked. If you remember, the FBI under bad cop James Comey allowed the DNC to get away with that ruse, and never examined or came into possession of that server directly. Crowdstrike was in fact never required by the FBI to even produce an un-redacted copy of the server, nor was it ever required to produce an actual forensic report of its examination.

The reference to the “server” and the contention that Ukraine is in possession of a copy of its contents is what has the Democrats scrambling around to deflect attention today. This is the trap into which they have fallen – thanks to  their demands that President Trump produce this transcript, we now have millions of Americans reading this, wondering what in the hell is this “Crowdsrike”, and about to find out.

Even more panicking to the Democrats is the revelation that Zelensky agreed to discuss this matter not just with Rudy Giuliani, but also with Attorney General William Barr, who we know is conducting his own investigation into all the Obama-era wrongdoing at the FBI and within the Department of Justice.

Before today, the Democrats had believed they had gotten clean way with that Crowdstrike ruse, thanks to Comey’s happy cooperation.

Today, they are panicked like they have never been before.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

That is all.

How Long Before Biden Bows Out?

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Great dates in American Politics. – Exactly 32 years ago today, on September 23, 1987, Joe Biden, hair plugs intact, withdrew his name from consideration for the 1988 Democrat presidential nomination:

Image may contain: 1 person

Biden’s withdrawal from his first run for the presidency came after it had been revealed that he had plagiarized from a speech given in the UK earlier that same year by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock. Biden didn’t just lift a word here and there from Kinnock’s speech, mind you – he stole almost the entire thing. Which is pretty amazing, considering the Kinnock’s speech was an autobiographical recounting of his own life. That’s what kind of a brazen thief Joe Biden proved himself to be at the tender age of 44.

As this whole fake “whistleblower” non-scandal being promoted by the Democrat/Media propaganda complex continues to have the unintended effect of causing the reality of Biden and his family’s self-dealings to profit from the office of the vice presidency from 2009-2016, I’m beginning to think the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator and least-favorite Creepy Uncle might end up having to deliver another similar withdrawal speech within the next week or two.

Bear with me here.

As I have written these Campaign Updates almost every day for the past three years now, I have repeatedly reminded readers of several recurring realities in our nation’s politics. Two of those recurring realities are especially relevant here. They are:

Projection is the Democrats’ favorite Alinsky tactic – Whenever you see Democrats accusing President Donald Trump or some other Republican of bad behavior, it is a near-100% certainty that the Democrats are in fact themselves guilty of that exact behavior; and

Whenever you see the Democrat/Media propaganda complex ridiculing Donald Trump for something he has said or Tweeted, it is a near-100% certainty that whatever Trump is saying or tweeting is absolutely true.

Think about how this whole fake controversy began last week: A fake “whistleblower” who has zero first-hand information lodges a complaint against the President, alleging that he intimidated the President of Ukraine in a discussion about corruption in that country. Now, think about what everyone paying attention has learned since: That Joe Biden actually did intimidate Ukrainian officials in 2016, blackmailing them by withholding $1 billion in U.S. aid until they fired a prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company. We know without any doubt that Biden did this because we have video of him bragging about doing it at a public forum.

Oh, hey, the President tweeted about that tape on Saturday:

 

Let’s take a look at some of President Trump’s tweets in response to this fake controversy, tweets that have been ridiculed by the Democrat/Media complex:

That was tweeted early on Sunday, and by the end of the day, the stories about Hunter Biden and other Biden family members becoming fabulously wealthy in sketchy business deals while Creepy Uncle Joe was VEEP were floating all over social media.

But wait, there’s more:

Here is the simple, inescapable reality: Just as Rudy Giuliani told John Roberts on Fox News Sunday, the Democrats and their media toadies have fallen into a trap here. No matter how hard they try, the fake news media outlets cannot contain this story on behalf of Creepy Uncle Joe and his ne’er-do-well son.

This all exposes the real Achilles’ Heel of the Democrat/Media complex: They keep acting like it’s still 1988 here. They keep thinking that the “media” is just the three broadcast networks, CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post, and that as long as they have those outlets in their pockets they can control any story. The world doesn’t work that way anymore, boys and girls.

Biden was clearly rattled when confronted by a Fox News reporter on Saturday to explain his and his son’s activities related to Ukraine:

https://youtu.be/ev1rGSHaXx0

That is the bluster of a confused and panicked man. He has no idea what to do or how to answer, so he lashes out at the reporters to “ask the right questions.” He also probably lied outright when he said he and his son Hunter Biden had never discussed Hunter’s business dealings in the Ukraine, a claim that Hunter directly contradicted over the weekend.

Joe Biden is closing in on 77 years-old, and he is not in any way young for his age. He is in the midst of his third run for the presidency over a span of 32 years. His once-sizable polling leads in Iowa and New Hampshire are now gone, and Elizabeth Warren keeps slowly closing the gap with him in the national polls.

He now finds himself being caught in the middle of a corruption scandal that is not only of his and his son’s own making, but that he bragged about at public events. On camera. All his buds in the fake news media keep parroting their talking points, but fewer and fewer people are buying what they’re selling with every passing hour.

All of this is happening with next year’s Democrat convention still 10 long, long months away and Election Day more than 13 months hence.

Does anyone really think this very old, frail man has the stamina to last through all of that?

Not likely.

That is all.

P.S.: Right as I was posting this up, President Trump issued this tweet:

I’m just sayin’.

Media/Democrats Will Try to Parlay the “Whistleblower” Into Another Special Counsel

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Whistleblower” a real crisis? No, just more fake news. – Let’s all understand this latest effort by our fake news media and the deep state to harm President Donald Trump for what it is: A desperate attempt to protect Creepy Uncle Joe Biden and to trump up a pretense for a second special counsel.

Here’s the background: When the Unfrozen Caveman Senator was Vice President for Barack Obama His Own Self back in 2016, he allegedly threatened Ukrainian officials that the U.S. would withhold foreign aid funds unless the government fired a prosecutor general named Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the activities of Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in that country. Lo and behold, weeks later Shokin was fired and Hunter was home free.

In a recent phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, President Trump allegedly asked him to take a look at the issues surrounding that improper action by an American Vice President, as well as other issues surrounding Hunter Biden’s business dealings in that country. Rudy Giuliani admitted on CNN yesterday that he made a similar request on behalf of president Trump earlier this year.

So, which would you consider to be a “scandal” here: A Vice President strong-arming a foreign government to protect his son, or a President asking a foreign government to investigate that Vice President’s obviously improper actions? This is not a hard decision for anyone with any sense of personal ethics.

For our fake news media, acting on behalf of the Democrats and the Deep State, the choice is easy and perverse: Bad Orange Man is bad, Crazy Uncle is good. Thus, Bad Orange Man’s action is the “scandal.”

The Democrats and their media toadies will now attempt to use this request by the President as the next “Russia Collusion” narrative. No fewer than three separate House committees opened investigations into this “scandal” yesterday, demanding documents and testimony they know they will not receive.

You can be sure that calls for a special counsel will come next, perhaps as soon as later today. It’s part of the Deep State Kabuki Theater, after all. If Attorney General William Barr agrees to such a request, then we will know for certain sure he is no different or better than Jeff Sessions.

This is all these people have. It is who they are. This is what desperate animals do. Enjoy the show. I’m going to read a good book.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Yet Another Lost Week for the Democrats

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, so they have to lie, then? – The week started with former Colorado Governor and current hopeless presidential candidate John Hickenlooper becoming so distraught about his party’s race to the farthest extent of the far, far, far, far left that he felt the need to tell an interviewer that “I feel strongly that Democrats have to draw a clear line and say, ‘We are not socialists.'” Not a good look, Dems.

Sunday also saw yet another smear strategy against President Donald Trump die an ugly death. Trump had thrown the entire Democrat/Media propaganda complex into a four-day fit of apoplexy on June 13 when he told the little Clinton toady George Stephanolpoulous that he “would probably listen” if someone from another country called and said he had damaging information about a political opponent. Sensing an opportunity to damage the President, the Democrats and their media stooges spent the next 96 hours trying to convince Americans that that statement was somehow proof that he had personally worked with Putin to fix the 2016 election.

What it all really did was remind everyone that a) Robert Mueller had mounted a 2-year Witch Hunt trying to find evidence that such a thing had happened and failed to come up with anything and b) that the Clinton Campaign had laundered $11 million through the DNC, a law firm and a PR firm to pay foreign agents, mostly from Russia, to try to dig up dirt on her opponent. Apparently the Democrats got some really bad polling information on this smear Sunday afternoon, because the that particular narrative completely disappeared from the nation’s airwaves after about 4:00 p.m. that day, which must have been when the memo went out to everyone. Because that is what they do.

Image may contain: 1 person, sitting and text

Monday dawned with great news from Mexico, news that reminded everyone of another utterly failed Democrat/media narrative, which held that the President’s threat to impose tariffs on the failed state to the south would produce no results. We found out Monday that it was producing all sorts of great results in slowing the flow of illegals up from Central America, so the media immediately changed the subject. Because that, again, is what they do.

As the Democrat Clown Car of Mediocrities rolled out their presidential campaign messages to “crowds” of literally dozens of supporters – Eric Swalwell drew exactly 18 for a gun control rally on Monday –  Tuesday gave us clip after clip of thousands of Trump supporters spending as much as 40 hours in line and actually holding tailgate parties awaiting the President’s formal campaign kickoff announcement in Orlando, Florida.

Of course, none of the broadcast networks carried the event, something they had always done for previous incumbents announcing their re-election campaigns, and the petulant creeps at CNN cut away after the President led the crowd in a chant of “CNN sucks!” Because that, yet again, is what they do.

Tuesday also gave us a social media clip of a half-drunk de facto Speaker of the House Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez telling her brain dead fans that the border detention centers being used to temporarily house illegal aliens while their bogus asylum claims are being processed are exactly the same thing as Hitler slaughtering 6 million Jews in concentration camps. As if to amplify their Party’s ongoing lurch to disgusting antisemitism, not a single Democrat leader could summon the intellectual honesty to disavow AOC’s despicable remarks.

By Wednesday, Creepy Uncle Joe Biden, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, was being blasted by his fellow presidential candidates for bragging about how he used to get stuff done in the senate by paling around with all those old segregationists of the 1970s. The media let that narrative go on for two solid days before they suddenly realized that all it was doing was reminding everyone that all those segregationists were in fact members of the Democrat Party. Ooopsie.

Also on Wednesday, we found out that the Broadway play about Slick Willie and the Fainting Felon, “Hillary and Clinton”, was shutting down its run early due to … wait for it … low ticket sales. Interestingly, this is the same reason why Slick and the Pantsuit Princess shut down their nationwide tour of evening events months ahead of time. There’s a message in all of this somewhere… wonder what is might be?

Thursday brought us film of Democrat hero Angela Merkel shaking uncontrollably, like Beto O’Rourke giving a campaign speech, as she stood for the German national anthem at a public event. If Merkel were a member of America’s Democrat Party, she’d be a part of its youth movement.

The Democrats’ whole “fossil fuels cause global warming” narrative took a big hit the same day when Canada’s child leader Justin Trudeau declared a “climate emergency” in one breath, and then approved a major oil pipeline in his next. I swear I don’t make this stuff up – who could?

The week got even worse for the anti-American party known as the Democrats when, after it was revealed that Iran had shot down an unmanned U.S. drone flying in international air space, each and every member of the Democrat Party knee-jerked to parroting the Iranian Mullahs’ talking points. Here is California Democrat Jackie Speier, for example:

By Friday, it became obvious that while everyone, Democrats and Republicans alike, was knee-jerking to their favorite talking points, President Trump was the lone adult in the room, speaking in measured tones about the situation and carefully considering all of his options instead of taking action that would end up with innocent people dying.

On that same day we found out that the hacks at USA Today were sitting on polling results showing the President with a 49% public approval rating, the highest he has ever attained in that particular poll. Because that, one more time, is what those people do.

Oh, yeah, it was also Friday when we discovered that Creepy Uncle Joe’s creepy son, Hunter Biden, had fathered a child with a 25 year-old Arkansas woman while he was engaged in an affair with his late brother’s widow, and had refused to take responsibility for the child. My goodness.

The Democrats in the House continued their party’s ongoing War on Women – and on little girls – when they unanimously passed a bill that would force school girls to compete with trans-genders born as males in sporting events. Think about that for a second: The vote was unanimous. Not a single Democrat representative sees anything unfair in this. Unreal.

To close out Friday, candidate Swalwell promised that, as his first act upon taking office, he would summarily fire President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. This is just one of many problematic promises the unintentionally-hilarious Swalwell keeps making, given that 1) Kushner is not actually on the government payroll, and 2) by the time a “President Swalwell” took office – an event that will thankfully never happen – Kushner would have already been long-gone away from Washington in any event.

The Democrat/media propaganda complex closed out its lost week by pounding the obviously false story shamefully published in New York Magazine, that, while married to Marla Maples, one of the most beautiful women on the face of the earth 25 years ago, Donald Trump was out raping homely, 52 year-old matrons.

The claim is being made by a pathetic wretch who is hawking a book, and is so blatantly false that even some mainstream media outlets have refused to join in the narrative, a fact that caused Democrat water-boy Chris Hayes to whine on Twitter:

You just really cannot make this stuff up, folks.

And thus, another completely lost week for the Democrats goes into the books.  Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of people.

That is all.
