Saturday News Roundup: Tucker Carlson Backs Down in his Bruhaha with Sidney Powell

Tucker Carlson did a little crawfishing last night. – After being raked over the coals by his viewers for his attack on Sidney Powell in his Thursday monologue, Fox host Tucker Carlson took a minute on Friday to try to avoid losing half of his audience:

Only time will tell if he succeeded or not.

But let’s all admit that Carlson is absolutely 100% correct about one thing: Sidney Powell had better be able to clearly and unambiguously back up her consistent claim that Dominion/Smartmatic software was manipulated to switch millions of Trump votes to Biden when these cases go to court in the coming two weeks. She has made this claim so frequently now that any judge she goes in front of is going to be very curious to see if she can back it up.

And “proof” cannot simply be an affidavit from or testimony by some former employee, which is what Powell consistently refers to whenever she is questioned about this. She will need to have first-hand, real documentary evidence to back up any verbal claim from any witness. If she does not have that, then she should not have been out there making this claim in ever press appearance she has made over the past two weeks.

Let’s also note, however, that Powell has also consistently said that she never makes a claim publicly that she cannot prove in court, and her outstanding track record as a lawyer supports that statement. As I discussed yesterday, no good lawyer is ever going to reveal her full case publicly in advance of trial, and Powell is a very, very good lawyer. So there is every reason to be optimistic where this is concerned.

Thus, in this ongoing conflict between Carlson and Powell, I feel very strongly both ways.

This happened on Friday:

From the report at JustTheNews:

The Trump campaign is bringing “legitimate accusations” to court through affidavits of credible witnesses and other evidence used in its challenges to electoral outcomes in various states, Federal Election Commission Chairman Trey Trainor said.

Trainor said his review of evidence, including numerous affidavits claiming voter fraud and a sworn statement by a prominent mathematician flagging up to 100,000 Pennsylvania ballots, met the first level of legal scrutiny under what’s known as motion to dismiss or “Rule 12(b)(6)” of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which would dismiss less credible claims.

Noting the subsequent legal threshold beyond a “motion to dismiss” is the “summary judgment phase,” Trainor said that under this phase, the credibility of witnesses is presumed to be accurate, especially given the caliber of the testimonies Trainor has observed to date.

“When considering a motion for summary judgment, a judge will view all evidence in the light most favorable to the movant’s opponent,” explains Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute website.

“What I would be concerned with, if I were on the other side of these election contests that are going on around the country, is that if you look at the level of evidence that has been provided by these affidavits — hundreds of affidavits that corroborate events that have happened on the ground — in a summary judgment phase of these cases, you have to take the evidence of the plaintiff as being true,” Trainor told “Just the News AM” television show Friday morning.

[End]

Oh.

This also happened on Friday:

From the story at JustTheNews:

Dominion Voting Systems backed out on Thursday night of a commitment to attend an oversight hearing before Pennsylvania’s State Government Committee and instead “lawyered up,” says a Pennsylvania lawmaker.

Dominion has been frequently cited by President Trump’s legal team, which is working to audit and perhaps overturn results in several states that have declared Democrat Joe Biden the winner.

Earlier on Thursday, before Dominion backed out of the Pennsylvania hearing, Trump attorney Sidney Powell made some very strong allegations against the company.

She stated that the company was “created in Venezuela at the direction of Hugo Chavez to make sure he never lost an election after one constitutional referendum came out the way he did not want it to come out. We have one very strong witness who has explained how it all works. His affidavit is attached to the pleadings of Lin Wood in the lawsuit he filed in Georgia.”

[End]

If Dominion disputes Powell’s claims and has nothing to hide, why is the company hiding? If you were a company CEO and you saw a high-profile lawyer for the President of the United States out there making all sorts of claims about your company that you consider to be false and damaging, wouldn’t you literally leap at any opportunity to get out there and tell your story, especially an opportunity to testify in front of a panel of key policymakers?

It is frankly stunning and damning that Dominion cancelled this appearance at the last minute.

Hey, maybe this had something to do with it. – Also on Friday, the Kirkland & Ellis law firm backed out of its representation of Pennsylvania’s corrupt Democrat Secretary of State in the matter:

Kind of makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

This also happened on Friday:

Take a look at the justices who now will have jurisdiction over appeals from the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia. These assignments, by the way, are made by Chief Justice John Roberts in consultation with each justice about their preferences and areas of expertise. The associate justice with jurisdiction will have the first say about whether any appeals from that state should be heard by the full court.

Stay tuned.

In other news, here is the edict that Minnesotans got from their corrupt communist Democrat Governor on what was Day 250 of “15 Days to Flatten the Curve”:

Lovely, isn’t it? Quit electing Democrats, Minnesotans, and stuff like this will stop happening to you.

Writing at The Federalist, Joy Pullmann has a terrific piece detailing how controversial presidential advisor Scott Atlas has been right about everything related to the China Virus, which is why the corrupt news media and Democrats are so focused on destroying him.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

Because he has courageously presented evidence that gums up the media’s goal of ending Trump’s presidency by using coronavirus to punish Americans, the knives have been out for the views Atlas represents since the beginning.

Atlas is not at all alone in professional skepticism about the value of extended lockdowns, cloth masks, and obsessing about case counts as opposed to hospitalizations and deaths. So far, more than 12,000 medical and public health scientists and more than 35,000 medical professionals from around the world have signed the Great Barrington Declaration that summarizes this advocacy of “focused protection.”

Atlas is just a prominent face for this view that the power-hungry elites need to crush to avoid responsibility for their horrifically bad leadership during the COVID outbreak, as well as to get Trump. So they seek to destroy him because he and the scientific coalition he represents makes it clear that these public health emperors may have plenty of masks, but no clothes.

Thus YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook have repeatedly banned or slapped warnings on Atlas’s statements and all scientific evidence that might support the Great Barrington view. This week a former Obama official called for Atlas’s medical license to be revoked for the crime of practicing science.

Tuesday News Roundup: Vote Like Your Way of Life Depends on it – Because it Does

[Note: You can read my predictions for the outcome of this election HERE.]

Here is one reason why massive post-election voter fraud is Joe Biden’s and his fellow Democrats’ only hope:

An excerpt from the linked article:

Wisconsin Democrats do not appear to be hitting their vote-by-mail and in-person early voting goals, an analysis of the early vote by “The Dan O’Donnell Show” has found. Despite a massive push for early voting across the state, the 12 counties won by Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 are badly trailing their early vote percentage from four years ago.

As of Monday morning, the day after in-person early voting concluded in Wisconsin, the 12 Democrat counties–Ashland, Bayfield, Dane, Douglas, Eau Claire, Green, Iowa, La Crosse, Menominee, Milwaukee, Portage, and Rock–accounted for a total of 743,829 votes; 39.4 percent of the 1,886,533 cast statewide. In 2016, those 12 counties accounted for 50.4 percent of the statewide early vote (336,533 cast out of 666,846 total early votes).

Dane and Milwaukee Counties–Wisconsin’s most populous and most overwhelmingly Democratic–account for 29.8 percent of the 2020 early vote total, down a full percentage point from the 30.9 percent share of Wisconsin’s early vote in 2016.

[End]

Oh. You don’t say.

This trend is not isolated to Wisconsin – it is happening all over the country and portends a big Trump/GOP win coming today. The only hope Biden and the Ds have is to steal millions of votes with post-Election Day vote “counting” shenanigans. Luckily, unlike Mitt Romney in 2012 and McCain in 2008, the President’s campaign is deploying thousands of lawyers and poll watchers to police the situation.

Here’s a great example of the Democrats’ plans for the rest of this week and beyond:

It’s only Democrats saying stuff like this – Republican-run cities and counties are going to get their votes counted tonight. Period. The Republican-run counties in PA and Florida will get their results in in just hours after the polls close, but you will see Democrat-run areas like Philly and Palm Beach and Broward counties in Florida take days and perhaps weeks.

Why? Can’t Democrats do basic math? Is it really so hard? Why do Democrat officials insist on pretending they are all elementary school dropouts?

The one and only reason for putting up this pretense is so they can extend the time they have available to “find” boxes of ballots in trunks of cars, in broom closets, buried under trees, etc. This must be stopped.

Get ready for the rioting:

It’s not like they’re making any secret of it, folks. And here is an immutable fact: If you had to board up your homes and/or businesses this week in anticipating of Democrat-sponsored rioting and looting tonight, THAT MEANS YOU HAVE BEEN ELECTING DEMOCRATS.

Stop doing that, and the problem disappears. This is not hard or complicated, much like counting votes.

This is a good sign:

Yeah, it’s 26 votes, but 16 of them going Trump’s way is just a sign of what is to come in New Hampshire, which Trump lost in 2016 by just a couple of thousand votes.

But what about Florida? – Here you go, from the most accurate pollster in 2016:

Look, folks, even the Pennsylvania Amish have jumped on the Trump Train:

Oh, my.

Here was last night’s Trump rally in Wisconsin, where more than 30,000 turned out to see the President:

Amazing.

Here’s what Joe Biden was doing in the Fracking state of Pennsylvania, the hub of the giant Marcellus Shale natural gas resource play:

Here’s the thing about that: The tiresome Ms. Gaga is a virulent anti-Fracking activist. Completely brain dead and tone deaf by the Biden camp.

Nail, here is Tucker Carlson hitting you on the head:

Our ruling class is indeed disgusting, and the thing it fears the most is a President Donald Trump governing unimpeded by re-election considerations. It is time we give that to the Swamp rats, snakes and skunks.

It’s a great day to be an American. If you haven’t voted yet, get out and do it like your way of life depends on it.

Because it does.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Bobulinski Revelations are a Ticking Time Bomb for Joe Biden

Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired a full hour interview with former Biden crime family “business” partner Tony Bobulinski last night, and we found out all sorts of things about the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Candidate. Among the new revelations are:

– Adam “Pencil Neck” Schiff is responsible for Bobulinski’s decision to go public. Bobulinski told Carlson that he was outraged when Schiff started the false narrative that the Hunter Biden laptop was a part of a Russian disinformation campaign, and the media and Biden campaign started to parrot that narrative. The Bobs said that he demanded that Schiff retract his statement and when no retraction was forthcoming, that was when the made the decision to go public.

Thanks, Bugeyes!

– Bobulinski has recordings of various key phone conversations: Carlson played a recording of a phone conversation between Bobulinski and another ex-partner, Rob Walker, a former associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton (because of course they would somehow be involved in any mob-like influence scheme) in which they had this exchange:

“If he doesn’t come out, on record, I am providing the facts,” Bobulinski said.

“Ah, Tony, you’re just going to bury all of us, man,” Walker responded.

– Joe Biden could have kept him quiet with a single phone call to Schiff. He told Carlson that he had “hoped the Bidens would do the right thing,” but why he entertained that silly thought is anyone’s guess, given the Bidens’ sordid family history.

– Bobulinski had not one, but two face-to-face meetings with Joe Biden at Biden’s own request. During the first meeting, The Bobs recalls Joe Biden telling him, “My son and my brother trust you emphatically so I trust you. Good luck and work hard.” At the second, Joe Biden advised, “Keep an eye on my son and brother and look out for my family.”

– Regarding the infamous email in which Hunter Biden lays out to a partner in their business the various desired payoff divisions, noting that Hunter Biden gets 20 percent, Jim Biden, Joe’s brother, gets 10 percent and Hunter will hold 10 “for the big guy”, Bobulinski confirmed that the “Big Buy” absolutely was a reference to Quid Pro China Joe, the head of the family. It’s like a scene from the Sopranos.

There is much, much more and you can find a video of the full interview at this link.

Naturally, the entirety of the corrupt legacy media establishment will ignore this explosive interview just as it has ignored the entire sordid story in lockstep like the good little Goebbels Nazis they all are. Remember, these are the very same corrupt reporters and propaganda outlets who spent five years pushing a Russia collusion narrative without a single reliable witness they could point to publicly, without any recordings of incriminating phone calls, without a single incriminating email or text message [other than those that incriminated various FBI agents], without a single shred of actual evidence.

It’s the same media that reported leak after leak after leak for years on end without identifying a single source, without producing any real evidence to support what their “anonymous” and no doubt often made-up “sources” were telling them. The very same media that is only too happy to run in unison with completely unsubstantiated claims so long as they target the Bad Orange Man in the White House.

If it seems as if the national media establishment is actually repelled by real, hard evidence, well, it’s because it is, at least in any situation that might damage a Democrat or other prominent, card-carrying member of the deep state DC elite.

And if you think that the “media establishment” does not include Fox News, you should review the final 9 seconds of Carlson’s show last night:

Obviously, he got a ton of pushback from Fox’s management about moving forward with this interview of a formal naval officer who is completely credible and has reams of documentation to back up his story. So much pushback that he was obviously required to issue this word of thanks to Fox’s powers that be for not quashing the entire thing as his show ended. Makes you wonder what parts of this Fox management is still suppressing.

None of this will impact the election. – The simple fact of the matter is that all of this new information about the Biden Crime Family comes too late to really have a major impact on voters, especially given the Nazi media blackout on it. But every bit of momentum in the race is already behind President Trump, so that won’t matter at the end of the day.

But here’s the thing: the media blackout on this stuff cannot last forever. It’s too explosive and too well-documented. All they are trying to do right now is just continue the charade until Election Day has come and gone.

On the off-chance that Biden and the Democrats and their media co-conspirators do succeed in stealing the presidency, all of this stands as a ticking time bomb that would enable a Democrat-controlled house to impeach him and an eager, GOP-controlled senate to remove him from office early next year. If the clearly-addled Biden is not willing to go quietly into that good night shortly after his inauguration, citing very real and valid health concerns, the existence of all of this hard evidence would give the Democrats the rationale they need to remove him with cause and install the person they’ve wanted all along, the very pliable Kamala Harris.

The truth is that, any way this goes, any Biden presidency will be extremely short-lived. He will either go voluntarily a few weeks after being sworn in, or just as with Julius Caesar, his Democrat “friends” will let their media toadies pull out the long knives and take him out forcefully before the Ides of March have come and gone.

All of it can and will be avoided by simply re-electing Donald J. Trump. So, do the right thing, America. This is not hard.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: The True Meaning of Coyote and the Media Starts Hedging its Election Bets

When most of us hear the term “coyote” used in the context of illegal immigration across our southern border with Mexico, we think about human traffickers who extort huge amounts of money from poor Mexicans and other Latin Americans to smuggle them across the border.

As it turns out, all of the blue-check media wonders on Twitter who have spent the last five years sagely pontificating about the evils of limiting illegal immigration think the term means this:

The Coyote Kid - Imgflip

No, I’m not kidding. When President Trump made a negative reference to Coyotes and their human trafficking efforts – during which an extremely high percentage of female travelers are raped – media blue check wonders like Maggie Haberman reacted with outrage, thinking that the President was either referring to the parents of children or to actual coyotes. I swear I do not make this stuff up.

Here’s Tucker Carlson having a great old time ridiculing these morons on his show last night:

Thus we see that the very people who have been lecturing the rest of America about illegal immigration for all these years are in fact the rank ignoramuses we always suspected they must be in order to express such stupid opinions on the subject.

Good to know.

Speaking of the corrupt national news media, here’s an actual shot from a Biden Crime Family strategy meeting:

Ok, that’s just a meme, but it might as well be real.

And speaking of illegal immigration, take a gander at these numbers. – DHS Chief Chad Wolf reported this week that the Trump Administration has made incredible strides in halting the flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border, but warns that a new surge of illegals is building.

From a report at Breitbart since the rest of the media is blacking out the story:

President Donald Trump slashed the inflow of southern migrants from 400,000 in 2019 to just 14,000 in 2020, according to acting homeland security chief Chad Wolf.

The coronavirus crash is creating a new surge of migrants up to the U.S. border, Wolf warned in his October 21 speech. “Should our critics be successful and repeal the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] CDC order, we would face an unimaginable public health crisis,” Wolf said in a Phoenix, Arizona, speech, adding:

The only reason today’s crossings have not reached a crisis level is because of the policies and procedures the Department has put in place during the past four years. If these critical tools are removed or overturned, then the Department—and you, our frontline partners—would be imperiled by another immigration crisis.

 

Wolf described the administration’s huge and successful efforts to curb the southern migration into U.S. blue-collar workplaces. Prior Presidents did little or nothing, but Trump’s hard-fought upgrades have helped push up wages and opportunities for tens of millions of Americans — including blue-collar blacks and Latinos. Trump’s effort also protected many millions of Americans from losing their jobs amid relentless Wall Street pressure for corporate cost-cutting.

“In perhaps no area did the Washington special interests try harder to stop us than on my policy of pro-American immigration,” Trump said in his August 28 acceptance speech.

Wolf also touted the agency’s efforts to start shielding all Americans from the trillion-dollar economic threat caused by the legal and illegal migration of white-collar workers.

That’s a stunning success any way you look at it.

What is it with these Democrat politicians and dressing up as despicable historic figures for costume parties? – Yesterday, Patrick Howley revealed a high school annual photo of Democrat Arizona Senate candidate Mark Kelly dressed up as Adolph Hitler at some costume party:

What is up with this, seriously? It is as if every damn Democrat politician in America spent his or her youth longing for the days of the KKK and Nazi Germany. We all make mistakes in our misspent youths – that’s just part of growing up – but it seems that the current generation of Democrat politicians had a very ugly recurring theme running running through their culture back in the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.

Kelly of course denies the person in the photo is him, but no one really believes him, mainly because the person in the photo is quite obviously a young Mark Kelly. Same jawline, same ears, same nose, same mouth, same body posture, etc.

The unearthing of this photo comes at a very inopportune time as he is now slightly trailing incumbent Republican Martha McSally in the most recent polls taken in the race. Oof.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Don’t look now, but the leftwing media and pundits are now starting the process of hedging their bets. – After months of pretending that Joe Biden was about to win the election in a landslide, the corrupt news media and pundits like Nate Silver have started the process of hedging their bets so they can claim to have been “right” when President Trump ends up winning a handy re-election.

Here’s Nate Silver, suddenly setting up a strawman scenario to explain why he completely whiffed on accurately projecting this election, just as he did in 2016:

Oh. You don’t sayyyyyyy. Now, when he is brought on MSNBC on Election Night to explain how he missed the Trump comeback, Silver will be able to point to this tweet and say, “hey, I warned you guys about this 11 days ago!”

Hilarious.

Here’s what Politico put out on Friday:

Here’s an excerpt:

Whether he is defeated in 11 days or leaves office in four years, Trump and Trumpism will still be with us, for decades to come.

The most obvious sign of that is the Senate’s all but certain confirmation Monday of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court — Trump’s third justice.

But it’s way more than a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court. Democrats complain about the lasting effects of ignoring climate change for four years. They say the nation’s image abroad has eroded, as has confidence in democracy at home. For the duration of his presidency, Trump has insisted elections are “rigged.” No surprise, many voters aren’t confident that American elections are conducted in a fair and equal way.

After watching the chaotic presidential debate three weeks ago, the teenage son of Ken Martin, the chairman of Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, asked Martin how he could stomach a life in politics, his chosen profession.

“It’s just sad, sad all around,” Martin said. “We’re going to be living with Donald Trump’s impact on politics for the next couple of generations.” He went on to say: “My concern here, win or lose, is that we have essentially changed the norms of politics to a place where you don’t have civil discourse anymore. The idea of working together just becomes so far off in the distance that how does anything get done in government anymore?”

For Democrats who feel like they are on the cusp of victory in this election, there is a sense of grief for what they have already lost.

It’s 2016 all over again, folks. These people are utterly and completely incapable of learning. They had four full years to do some research and work to get to know who Trump supporters really are and try to gain an understanding of why he creates such an incredible level of loyalty out here in Flyover Country, and chose to just lazily spend those years vilifying us instead.

They can all feel what’s coming now, but cannot ever bring themselves to admit they might have been wrong. So, they’ll all spend the next 10 days putting out bet-hedging pieces like this one and issuing fake polls showing Trump “closing the gap” that never really existed and all the other face-saving tactics in which they engaged in the leadup to Election Day 2016. Having set themselves up with this false sense of security, it’s too late now to do anything but try to save some shred of dignity and credibility to which they can desperately cling when the world comes crashing down around them one more time.

Glorious.

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.

Tuesday News Roundup: Tucker Carlson Exposes Soros as Seattle’s Mayor Hires a Pimp

Here’s how depraved Democrats are in their pursuit of political power. – The House’s new draft of a short-term budget deal through December 11 defunds school lunches for children and aid to American farmers, so that their candidates can then go into rural areas where both are needed and blame Donald Trump.

From a story at BreakingDefense.com:

The document, released Monday by the House Appropriations Committee, could go up for a vote before the entire House later this week before being sent to the Senate.

In a sign of the fights to come with only nine days until the federal government shuts down, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell immediately rejected the proposed House bill, writing on Twitter: “House Democrats’ rough draft of a government funding bill shamefully leaves out key relief and support that American farmers need. This is no time to add insult to injury and defund help for farmers and rural America.”

[End]

Every time you think the Democrat Party could not possibly become any more despicable than it already is, they go and prove you wrong again.

Fox News can’t mute Tucker Carlson. – Fox is moving increasingly left during its daytime programming, but the ratings power of its evening host lineup is keeping that four-hour block steadfastly conservative.

Late last week, we saw the spectacle of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich being shut down by Harris Faulkner, Melissa Francis and Marie Harf when he raised the unarguable fact that George Soros has spent hundreds of millions of dollars over the last decade supporting radical anarchists in district attorney elections all over the country. This summer, we saw the results of that Soros effort with hundreds of domestic terrorists being released immediately without charges filed against them after they had been arrested for rioting in cities like Portland, Seattle, Minnesota, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago and New York.

Tucker Carlson, host of Fox’s 8-9 p.m. ET hour, took it upon himself to respond to Fox’s censorship of Gingrich by airing a full-segment report on Soros’s evil activity last night, and it is outstanding. Here’s the clip of it:

So long as his ratings remain strong, Carlson apparently still overrules Paul Ryan in the Fox News power structure.

Philly fans boo everything, even when they aren’t there. – During their loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz was booed twice as he came off the field after throwing interceptions:

That’s nothing unusual, of course. What is odd about this situation, though, is that there were no fans in attendance in Philly on Sunday. Wentz was in fact booed by the fake fan noise being pumped into the stadium by employees of his own team. I’m not sure you’ll see that adherence to authenticity in any other BLMFL stadium this season.

While Joe Biden flubbed the lines to the Pledge of Allegiance while reading yet another TelePrompter speech to yet another imaginary audience, President Donald Trump put in a full day’s work at the White House – including a meeting with potential nominee Amy Coney Barrett – then flew out to Toledo, Ohio for another of his massive airport rallies.

Here are some scenes from that:

But the fake pollsters expect you to believe that the guy who doesn’t even know how to put on his mask with the blue part facing outwards is leading the incumbent who draws these crowds everywhere he goes.

Don Lemon says the part he isn’t supposed to say out loud. – CNN is now officially aligned with the domestic terrorist groups and their goals of destroying America.  Watch as pretend journalist Don Lemon formally adopts the Antifa/BLM goal of “[blowing] up the entire system”:

Dear Don: When what you’re saying is too extreme for even Fredo to endorse, you’ve probably said too much.

The Big Apple continues to rot from its core. – In a bit of real news that was of course ignored by our corrupt, mainstream news media, the Daily Caller reports that 87% of New York City restaurants were unable to make their August rent payments due to the depressing effects of ongoing lockdown orders by the city’s buffoon Mayor, and thanks to the fact that House Democrats killed a Republican stimulus bill that would have provided rent support before they left for their August vacation.

From that Daily Caller story:

A survey found that 87% of New York City restaurants, bars, and nightlife venues couldn’t pay their full rent in August as the city grapples with permanent business closures and unemployment.

The survey by the NYC Hospitality Alliance also showed that 34% of these establishments couldn’t pay rent at all, Patch reported.

The results, which were released Monday, come ahead of the scheduled reopening of indoor dining at 25% capacity starting Sept. 30. If positive rates for coronavirus don’t show significant increase, the capacity will be raised to 50% by Nov. 1, according to Eater.

But many restaurants are struggling to remain afloat in the meantime, and outdoor dining seemingly failed to help many businesses survive the warmer months of the pandemic.

“Restaurants, bars and nightlife venues have been financially devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Andrew Rigie, the group’s executive director, said in a statement according to the NY Post.

“Even before the pandemic when operating at 100 percent occupancy, these small businesses were struggling to stay open. Now we’re seeing widespread closures, approximately 150,000 industry workers are still out of their jobs, and the overwhelming majority of these remaining small businesses cannot afford to pay rent.”

[End]

Thanks, Bill de Blasio and Nancy Pelosi!

Meanwhile, in Riot City, USA… – The domestic terrorists in BLM and Antifa took their rioting to another residential neighborhood overnight as local police stood around and watched:

In Seattle, communist Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan has hired a pimp to be her “Street Czar”, because of course she has:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. Come back and see me – I’m here all week.

Wednesday News Roundup: China Scientist Drops a Bombshell and DOJ Convenes a Bolton Grand Jury

Let’s all remember that Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates and Barack Obama directed hundreds of millions to this lab and its “research”. – Last night, Tucker Carlson interviewed a Chinese virologist named Dr. Li-Meng Yan. Ms. Yan worked at the WHO reference lab in Hong Kong, one of the top research labs on earth, during the time the China Virus was released from the virology research lab outside of Wuhan.

She told Carlson that the China Virus was created in that lab and the release of the Virus was committed intentionally by the Chinese communist government.

From a story at Fox News:

Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese communist party released the virus “on purpose.” “Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,” she responded on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.

“I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top coronavirus lab in the world, in the University of Hong Kong. And the thing is I get deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved [in] the hospital … also I work with the top corona[virus] virologist in the world,” she said.

“So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.”

Yan’s comments conflicted with the opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, a White House coronavirus adviser, who previously cast doubt on the idea the virus was artificially created. In May, he told National Geographic: “If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated—the way the mutations have naturally evolved.”

In response, her former employer, the University of Hong Kong, criticized her account. A press release noted “that the content of the said news report does not accord with the key facts as we understand them.”

“Specifically, Dr Yan never conducted any research on human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus at [the University of Hong Kong] during December 2019 and January 2020, her central assertion of the said interview.”

Yan, who said she was one of the first scientists in the world to study the novel coronavirus, fled China and currently fears retaliation. She was allegedly asked by her supervisor at the University/WHO reference lab, Dr. Leo Poon, in 2019 to look into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019.

[End]

So, who are we to believe, a scientist who is placing her life in clear danger by making these allegations, or a lifelong bureaucrat who steered millions of dollars to the lab from which the virus was clearly released?

Doesn’t seem like a real tough question.

This also happened on Tuesday:

From a story at the Washington Examiner:

The Justice Department opened a criminal inquiry into whether former White House national security adviser John Bolton unlawfully disclosed classified information in his latest book.

A grand jury convened and issued subpoenas for communication records from Simon & Schuster, the company that published The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir, as well as from Javelin, Bolton’s literary agency, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.

“We are aware of reports that grand jury subpoenas have been issued seeking information concerning the publication of Ambassador Bolton‘s recent book,” Bolton’s lawyer, Charles Cooper, told the Washington Examiner. “Ambassador Bolton emphatically rejects any claim that he acted improperly, let alone criminally, in connection with the publication of his book, and he will cooperate fully, as he has throughout, with any official inquiry into his conduct.”

[End]

Oh, my, oh, my, oh, my, my, my. Whether he ends up being prosecuted and convicted or not, the decision to publish this book is going to end up costing Mr. Bolton far more money in legal fees than whatever money he may make from it. Couldn’t happen to a nicer warmonger.

No critical race theory training at CDC after all. – After President Trump ordered a halt to all training sessions on the evil “critical race theory” within federal agencies, some Obama holdover at the CDC decided they would move ahead with that agency’s sessions anyway:

Yesterday, the Director of the OMB, Russ Vought, announced that that bit of subversion had been halted:

There is still justice in the world.

A beautiful day for a peace deal. – As I covered elsewhere this morning, the Democrat/media Axis of Propaganda was beside itself with rage on Tuesday as President Trump was having the temerity to bring actual peace between three nations in the Middle East.

Katie Pavlich posted these photos, which captured the beautiful setting at the White House:

Blessed are the peacemakers. Thank you, President Trump.

Today’s Democrat Party-sponsored Riot Update – Portland, aka Riot City USA, had a fourth straight day of no rioting following the DNC stand down order issued last Friday due to bad polls. But real journalist Andy Ngo reports that the Democrat-paid organizers are getting ready to mount a new offensive soon:

As I pointed out yesterday, the past few days of relative calm are just a lull in the action. Expect the death and destruction to mount back up soon.

There was some action in Philadelphia, where Democrat-sponsored BLM terrorists held what CNN and MSNBC would claim was a “largely peaceful” rally that included these scenes:

Ask yourselves this: Why do Democrat mayors force their police officers to put up with this kind of crap? That woman is a feral animal who should have been arrested, taken to jail, and booked for assaulting a police officer. She needs to be in custody for her own safety and for the safety of those around her.

That is all.

Queen Nancy Personifies the Democrat Party’s Contempt for Ordinary Americans

So, why do we care where Queen Nancy gets her hair done? – The answer to that is simple, isn’t it? It’s because she has been one of the loudest Democrat voices over the last six months lecturing the little people of America to stay locked up in their homes and only venture out when wearing a mask. She’s been one of the most ardent fans of the lockdowns mandated by despicable Democrat governors like her step-nephew Gavin Newsom, putting millions of little people out of work and shuttering hundreds of thousands of businesses.

Even worse than her act of intentionally violating nephew Gavin’s lockdown/mask orders on Sunday by intimidating a single mother salon owner to open her shuttered business just for her decripit, stringy mane was Queen Nancy’s response to getting caught. She couldn’t lower herself to do the simple thing: To admit her wrongdoing and ask to be forgiven. Instead, she haughtily claimed at a press conference to having been “set up” and demanded that the salon owner she had intimidated apologize to her.

Nancy Pelosi says her visit to a hair salon was a 'setup' - Los Angeles Times

This would seem a small matter were it not so perfectly emblematic of the dismissive stance taken towards ordinary Americans not just by Queen Nancy and her despicable fellow Democrats, but many Republicans who fester in the DC Swamp as well.

It is a sad fact of America’s current state of being that, aside from President Donald Trump, several members of his cabinet and senior advisory staff and a handful of members of congress, almost the entirety of the District of Columbia has become hostile territory. About 95% of the national news media is supportive of that contempt for the American people. Even worse, the Democrat Party funds two different domestic terrorist groups – Antifa and BLM – whose operatives travel the country burning and looting vast swaths of Democrat-controlled cities at will, knowing the Democrat mayors will not allow the police to properly deal with them.

Here’s a prime example of these terrorists acting with impunity in Washington, DC just a few hours before this was written:

The police can’t act because the Mayor won’t allow it. The Mayor isn’t home, so she couldn’t care less about the disturbance and threat these thugs are creating for her neighbors. You think you’re safe in your home because your town has ordinances that designate this to be criminal behavior? Better check to see which political party your mayor is affiliated with, because you might be surprised to discover exactly how unsafe you really are.

The Democrat Party also has an online army, the social media outrage mob that attacks, doxxes and cancels anyone the Democrats point their gnarly fingers towards. The single mother salon owner, Erica Kious, made an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show last night. She told Carlson that Nephew Gavin’s lockdown order has caused her to lose 60% of her clients and most of her stylists and that her business is dead.

Even worse, she told Carlson that she will have to leave San Francisco after being attacked by the Democrat outrage mob on social media with the most vile and disgusting kinds of death threats imaginable.

It’s a disgrace. This is behavior that no civilized society should allow, but that’s the whole point: The Democrat Party is working hard to ensure that America loses its status as a civilized society.

See, it would be impossible to “transform” a free nation of 330 million people who exist as a cohesive unit, a people who share common values, a common outlook and common goals. It is far, far easier to foment a Marxist-style revolution within a population that is completely divided among itself, shares no common values or goals and is already assaulting one another online and actively attacking one another in the streets.

Every goal the Democrat Party has pursued over the past half-century has been designed to divide the American population along class, race and religious lines. They’ve used education policy for this, they’ve used tax policy for this, they’ve used civil rights policy for this, they’ve used housing policies and healthcare policies, immigration polices and foreign policy for this. Hell, they’ve even used energy and environmental policy to advance their divisive goals.

Democrats like Nancy Pelosi now believe that they are on the cusp of consolidating that half century of hard work in this year’s election. Her contempt for and hostility towards Erica Kious is just the manifestation of the way she feels towards all of us.

In their path stands a single obstacle: Donald J. Trump. He’s it. He is all the rest of America has.

You give this woman a majority in the House and Joe Biden/Kamala Harris in the White House, you will not enjoy the result.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Turncoat Kasich, Flynn Case Filing, and a Bogus Suit Hits Hannity and Carlson

You expected something else? – “News” broke on Monday that fake Republican John Kasich will “speak on behalf of” Joe Biden at the DCN phone call, er, “convention” when it virtually takes place in August. Note the specific wording, “speak on behalf of”. What, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe can’t speak for himself now? Or is that just yet another example of bad writing in the media?

It’s a valid question because you have to wonder whether Biden will by then even be capable of delivering his own acceptance speech from the safe confines of his basement. With everything else they are doing right now with the help of their corrupt media toadies, no one should doubt that the Democrats would try to hold a convention during which the nominee never opens his mouth.

Think about it: San Fran Nan has been illegally allowing members of her House caucus to “vote by proxy” for months now, and no one in the corrupt media can be bothered to inform their readers or viewers of that fact. If Democrats can get away with that, why wouldn’t they believe they could get away with holding a convention in which Kasich gives Biden’s acceptance speech by proxy?

In any event, Republicans should celebrate the fact that Democrats will now be subjected to an hour of the most tiresome man in politics droning on about “Hey, didja know my Dad was a mailman?” Maybe they can get Bill Kristol and Paul Ryan to join him. Awesome.

Speaking of Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden… – Here he is wishing that our public schools taught more about radical Islam:

This is a guy, mind you, who can’t make himself utter the words “under God” in a campaign speech, but he’s all in on teaching Islam to your children. That’s who the Democrat Party wants to be your next president.

Problem, meet new narrative solution. – So, you’re the leaders of the Democrat Party, and you see Tucker Carlson’s ratings going through the roof as he tells the truth about what is really happening in our society night after night. You see Sean Hannity coming in a strong second in the cable ratings by pounding on Obamagate night after night. You see Ed Henry reviving the ratings fortunes of Fox’s mid-morning program while reporting scoops about Obamagate. You see Fox News in general destroying MSNBC and CNN in viewing audience and even among the 25-49 target demographic week after week after week.

What do you do? How about finding a disgruntled ex-Fox employee and a dissatisfied sporadic contributor who are willing to file a scattershot sexual misconduct lawsuit against all of the them?

From a story at Politico:

Two women accused male Fox News hosts of sexual harassment and, in one woman’s case, rape, in a lawsuit filed on Monday in federal court in New York.

Ed Henry, who was fired as a host earlier this month, was accused of sexual harassment and rape in the suit, while hosts Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Howard Kurtz were alleged to have separately behaved in a sexually inappropriate way. Jennifer Eckhart, a former producer, accused Henry of rape and threatening retaliation for refusing his advances. Cathy Areu, a reporter often invited on the network, accused Henry, Hannity, Carlson and Kurtz of sexual harassment and gender discrimination.

[End]

This is just too convenient for words, folks. Obviously, all of the accused Fox personalities have denied the accusations – they would do that even if they were guilty. For his part, Henry admits to having a consensual relationship with Eckhart, and the two exchanged some decidedly creepy messages. There is a reason why Fox dismissed him when the allegations became public.

The test will be to watch and see where this lawsuit goes, how it ends up being disposed.

My bet is the claims against Carlson and Hannity will quietly disappear in a few weeks after it become obvious Fox is not going to kneejerk to firing them as it did with Henry.

Kurt Schlichter had this reaction to the news of the suit:

That pretty well sums up my feelings about it, too. We’ll see.

Flynn Persecution Update: The U.S. Solicitor General’s office filed a petition yesterday urging the DC Circuit Court of Appeals to deny corrupt Judge Emmet Sullivan’s request for an en banc rehearing of General Mike Flynn’s application for a writ of mandamus.

Here’s how real journalist Catherine Herridge reported it on her Twitter feed:

Note this closing comment: “As far as the government is aware, only one district judge has ever before filed a petition for rehearing en banc in a mandamus case + that petition was denied.” That is how extraordinary and completely inappropriate this effort by Sullivan to keep Flynn’s case alive – and thus keep Flynn quiet – until after the election truly is.

Make no mistake about this: When the Circuit Court rules against Sullivan in a few weeks, there is no question whatsoever that the corrupt judge and his Lawfare lawyers will immediately request a hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court. Here’s the thing about that: the Supremes will not reconvene until the first Monday in October.

With Sidney Powell having filed her own response to Sullivan’s request, the case is now fully in the hands of the Circuit Court. But, given the realities of the calendar at this point, Sullivan and his deep state sponsors have basically already achieved their true goal.

That is all.
